HELMSLEY CHARITABLE TRUST 5.4 BILLION

Harry Helmsley may have been gentile or crypto or jewish but his business model with jewish partners was the very jewish rentier model His loud obnoxious (second) wife Leona offered no such ambiguity and was born jewish with the surname Rosenthal . Both husband and wife were convicted of massive tax fraud but Harry escaped due to alleged mental incapacity while Leona was sentenced to 16 years but served only 19 months Alan Dershowitz represented the Helmsley’s

Though his properties may have been worth $5 billion, Helmsley’s personal stake — as distinct from the mortgage debt or his partners’ investment — was lower. Helmsley-Spear managed more than 300 properties, and Mr. Helmsley was said to have an interest in many or most. He did not build or create anything

When he died childless in 1997, he left everything to Leona and when she died in 2007 she left a trust worth between 4-8 billion dollars A lifetime of non productive wheeling and dealing in real estate resulted in a massive Jewish trust

The trust fund is valued at between $4 billion and $8 billion. Among the main areas its grants support are programs focused on “the security and development of Israel.”  The Chabad gets a large chunk of all the grants

As of last year the Trst had made grants of nearly 1,6 billion mostly to Jewish or Israeli entities The Helmsley name appears on the Jerusalem Press Club facilities outside the walls of the Old City and will eventually grace a science building at the city’s Hadassah Academic College. The Helmsley foundation spent $5 million on construction of an underground hospital at the Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, for use in wartime. It’s given millions to the TaglitBirthright program that brings young Jews to Israel; funded a robotics center at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev; and alternative-energy research at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot.

It reports that its annual budget is over $3 million. Oddly, no 990 reports can be found for it.

    Would be great if you could do some articles on the way Jewry create nationalist movements in the west as a way to manufacture anti-semitism while also disempowering the host at the same time; as you do with India.
    I came across this article today, it’s pathetic. But it needs to be debunked. Antipodean resistance is clearly a psy op. Intelligent, awakened, people don’t act like this with immature graffiti or Jew hatred. Because we know thinking and acting rationally is the only weapon that is effective. We have also moved beyond such petty behaviour and rise above the politics and have no intention of harming anyone. If anything, we only want to protect the fragility of life. That’s why these fake articles leave me feeling so completely helpless. It’s outright propaganda whose sophistication is unbeatable.

    It seems the aim of these groups is to prop up the Holocaust narrative and distort the reality of Hitler’s Germany when it comes to what their real policies regarding Jews and race were. Thus paving the way for the disempowerment of European peoples(and eventually people everywhere) who must atone for their Holocaust sins by allowing in refugees, thus completely destroying their societies through population replacement. Yes, you are right, it is all about “getting” the host to buy into the Jews as victims and untouchable agenda.
    It always amazes me, how the ‘Nazis’ are portrayed as racist genocidal maniacs. Watch Olympia. This is the Nationalist Socialist reality. All nations existing peacefully in cooperation yet keeping their individual characters as nature intended. The Olympic rings symbolize this. Look at how Owen is practically glorified, again how could this happen if the notions of the Nazis being racist supremacists was true?!
    It’s all so sick the way reality is being distorted. I’m sick of all the words they create to manipulate, ‘racism’, ‘white nationalist’, ‘anti-semitism’. Every time we use them we push their agenda for them. I’m tired of helping them.
    I applaud your efforts, but I am no longer going to comment on the activities of Jews. Why? Because the problem isn’t that we don’t have access to the truth, it’s that people don’t want to hear it. They prefer the comfortable lie to the inconvenient truth.
    1945 was the defining year of the world’s future. It was Jewish triumph over the non-Jews. This is the only important message. We see it all around us today, every nation is completely infiltrated and beholden to Jewry! It’s the Russians the American media shout, knowing full well they mean the Jewish Bolshevik world wide takeover that has been successful, and manifests so clearly in the Trump Presidency with its Jewish Russian connections. They don’t even bother to hide it anymore. It makes one feel as if they are going insane, but once you learn to read the media from a Jewish perspective you realize you are very much sane.
    It is all about creating a ‘gentile’ free world, as their God promised. It’s all so sad that it is actually being implemented. They are creating a world of hybrid people who have no attachments to any previous culture other than the Jewish dominated modern world, and who therefore will exist quite happily in this new world order. Forever. You can’t be anti-semitic when you have known nothing else but this present modern world, this “culture of convenience”, created by Jews. When you have never known self rule, why would you have a problem with Jews ruling you? That is why Nationalism is such a threat, Jews fear people with an attachment to a historic culture in which they knew autonomous self rule. Take away race, and you take away cultural attachments, and annihilate autonomy altogether.
    Hitler was right when he had the breakdown in the bunker and said it was all over as the Soviets approached…….it really is all over. The singer on the radio is a Jew. The Jewish created concept of a supermarket I go shopping at is all Jewish controlled. My doctors Jewish. My religion was written by Jews. Hebrew names abound everywhere I look. Everything I read in print and see in the media passes through the Jewish censor. The computer I am using comes from a Jewish owned company. My whole concept of the world in regards to wealth is Jewish derived. These “cultural monopolists” overwhelm.
    It is not until you realize the German defeat was the end of everything that you truly understand the magnitude of what has happened. A self perpetuating cycle of destruction has been created, that has engulfed the entire planet. And can never be stopped because you can’t reverse the educational programming that has influenced one, and now multiple generations since WWII. It’s all about culture, Hitler got that, nobody else did.
    I enjoy your articles but only people with high intelligence have the capacity to understand the complexity of Jewish influence and how it has played a role from the ancient world until the present. Let’s face it most people don’t have the intellectual capacity to ever awaken.
    Keep writing, you never know who your words might reach. I will forever be indebted to people like you who helped in my awakening, if anything I am glad I can exist with the knowledge of what is really going on. I shudder at those who are blissfully unaware and will live and die without knowing any of this.
    But regarding commenting on Jews activities, I will no longer be doing so. The situation is so completely hopeless with the false nationalism and crypto infiltration that I don’t see a way out. People simply are so dumb, they keep falling for the lies again and again. All the same discussions we are having now people were having 100 years ago….yet despite all this the dumb masses still fall for all the lies. I simply no longer have an opinion on Jews, I simply don’t care enough any more to have one. Also the problem is not with Jews, it is with the host peoples who refuse to see what is right in front of them, and help the Jews to their own detriment. The only way to free yourself is by not giving the Jewish storytellers power. Stop engaging with them and they lose their power.

    But as usual you will just delete this message and not respond, which says everything.

    This is a great reference article. Some really diligent work has gone into this.

    May I just ask – were there supposed to be links in the article, because I can’t seem to see any ?
