Louis Mortimer Bloomfield

Recommended Posts

Maurice,

In his May 1960 letter to Georges Mantello in the fourth paragraph he references a "Chessler"

"Chessler is not interested in going into Permindex".

Could this be a mispelling/error?

Could L. M. Bloomfield be refering to the notorious"Lou Chesler"?

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/...92461-1,00.html

Hi Terry,

I have done a quick review of the documents I have and I didn't see any other mention of "Chessler". Since he wasn't interested, that's probably the reason why Bloomfield doesn't talk a lot about him, neither sent him letters. If I ever find other info on Chessler, I'll let you know.

REVELATIONS FROM THE BLOOMFIELD ARCHIVES (4)

PERMINDEX, BLOOMFIELD LINKED

TO FREEMASONS AND ROTHSCHILDS

PART FOUR:

Louis M. Bloomfield and the Rothschilds

Even if the information pertaining to Permindex are of the highest interest, the Bloomfield Archives are full of other gems. One of the most precious that I would like to briefly expose concerns Louis Bloomfield's relation to the Rothschilds.

There are in the Bloomfield papers many documents showing that Louis M. Bloomfield was acting as attorney for the Rothschild family, and particularly for Baron Edmund de Rothschild.

According to the archives, this relation with the Rothschilds was dating back to the Second World War at a time when Bloomfield had for client Oscar Federer, the manager of the Vitkovice Mining and Iron Corporation of Czechoslovakia, an industrial complex held by the Rothschilds. Vitkovice was at the time the most important steel plant of Central Europe. After Lionel Rothschild was arrested by the Nazis, both Goering and Himmler tried to gain control of the company in exchange of Lionel's liberation. (For more on Vitkovice see: http://www.rothschildarchive.org/ib/?doc=/...icles/vitkovice )

Years after the War, Bloomfield was still an important attorney for the family, particularly for Baron Edmund. For instance in 1959, the Montreal lawyer was responsable for incorporating in Canada a major Rothschild company: Tri Continental Pipe Line Ltd, a corporation that was granted by Israel 49 years exclusivity on the use of a 16-inch pipeline between the Red Sea and Haifa port on the Mediterranean sea. Through the Canadian corporation, Tri Continental Pipe Line was able to save taxes that would have otherwise been paid to the State of Israel.

Interestingly enough, an April 29th, 1960 Bloomfield's letter show that the Montreal lawyer was not only a business attorney of the Rothschilds, but was also a shareholder of Tri Continental Pipe Line. The letter lists the 15 shareholders of the new corporation, and Bloomfield's name came second right after Baron Edmund's.

Since 1968, since the first mention of Louis Mortimer Bloomfield's name as a Clay Shaw's associate, bits of information and tons of speculation have been published about him. But to this day, the fact that Bloomfield was related to the Rothschilds was unknown from the public.

This shows how much the information hold by Library and Archives Canada are exceptional. For the first time, the papers in the Louis M Bloomfield Archives give a documented description of this outstanding man and of the complex secret universe he was functioning in.

Was Bloomfield really the head of Permindex?

The documents that Louis Bloomfield donated to the National Archives are of incomparable value not only because of their international historical quality, but also for the reason that, on a national and a personal perspective, they have the potential to repair part of the damage done by decade of speculation to the reputation of Louis M. Bloomfield, a Canadian that played an important unknown role in world's affairs.

As I will expose in more details in some future posts, documents in the Bloomfield Archives clearly show that, far from being the supreme head of Permindex, Louis M. Bloomfield exchanged harsh correspondences with Freemason Georges Mantello, the "genius" behind Permindex, at times when Georges and his son Enrico Mantello weren't acting in the best interest of Bloomfield's clients.

For instance, in the following letter to Georges Mantello, the Freemason "genius" behind Permindex, Louis Bloomfield confronts him directly by asking : "Have you no regards or respect for my feelings in the matter, or when you make promise to me, do they mean nothing?" Bloomfield also specified: "I am finished unless you make a deal now with the Banca del Lavoro as you have promised me they will do."

Reading this letter brings one to doubt about the easy conclusion adopted by many writers and describing Louis M. Bloomfield as engineer of the JFK assassination, that mainly based on the fact that he held the majority of Permindex stocks. Together, the numerous 1960's letters show that, at that time, those stocks were sold by Georges Mantello as participation in a real estate scheme and that stockholders, far from being bosses of Permindex, may as well have been its victims.

The Bloomfield Archives documents contemporaneous to the JFK assassination should be able to substantiate the true story behind Permindex. According to Library and Archives Canada's decision, those documents will only be released when they will reach 50 years of age, even if Louis Bloomfield donate them on condition to make them public 20 years after his death, that occurred in 1984. LAC's disregard for its donator's will makes one wonder if Mr Bloomfield wouldn't write the exacts same words to the Chief Archivist as those he wrote Mantello: "Have you no regards or respect for my feelings in the matter, or when you make promise to me, do they mean nothing?"

If LAC doesn't change its mind, it is not before 2014 that the documents concerning Permindex's activities at the time of the JFK assassination should be available. And other important documents may remain secret up to 2028. And remember, one of the most interesting documents of the fonds is a 1979 letter that Bloomfield wrote to a Washington lawyer in order to complain about being unjustly identify as a CIA agent. In this letter, Bloomfield expressed his belief that he may have been confused with a "Major L. Blumenfield who I was informed was an Attaché to the American Embassy in Rome." If LAC doesn't review its position, we won't have access before 2028 to the other documents that may complete this piece of information.

By staying on its position, LAC is hiding the truth on one of the most important Canadian international lawyer of the Twentieth Century, a man who played many unknown roles in international politics. For instance, documents in the Bloomfield Archives shows that in 1966, years before Kissinger and Nixon, Bloomfield was a forerunner of open trade with Communist China, to the point of putting all his prestige behind this cause and his picture on some very peculiar flyers such as this one:

Other documents reveal that Bloomfield met Georges Bush Sr in China while the future US president was Chief of the United States Liaison Office in Peking between September 1974 and December 1975, at a time when the U.S. hadn't yet established diplomatic relations with Red China. In January 1976, one month after its return from China, Bush was promoted Director of Central Intelligence. All the Bloomfield correspondence from those years will be kept secret until they reach 50 years of age.

It is truly a shame that a governmental institution like LAC, without any true obligation, take the initiative to hide --from the international public-- historical documents that their donator wanted to make public. LAC's pretext concerning the protection of lawyer-client privilege and its abusive use of it to hide whole group of hundreds of documents without proper examination, seems to lack sincerity and consideration for both donator Bloomfield and the public.

Maurice,

In his May 1960 letter to Georges Mantello in the fourth paragraph he references a "Chessler"

"Chessler is not interested in going into Permindex".

Could this be a mispelling/error?

Could L. M. Bloomfield be refering to the notorious"Lou Chesler"?

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/...92461-1,00.html

Yes, Maurice,

Many thanks for your persistence and continued work on this neglected area, and I too would like to know if there are any other references to "Chessler" and whether or not it is Lou Chessler.

The latest with Louis Mortimer Bloomfield's son Harry Bloomfield. Harry Bloomfield it turns out was a leading figure of British intelligence through the Bnai Brith organization.

http://www.fpp.co.uk/BoD/BnaiBrith/Montrea...ette201002.html

The connection between Montreal and the assassination of an American President is nothing new. The same apparatus was used in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

From forum member Tony Chatkin 1994 speech "America's "Young America Movement": Slaveholders and the B'nai Brith".

At the close of the war, on April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth shot President Abraham Lincoln while another man simultaneously attacked Secretary of State William Seward. Lincoln died the next day.

Here are some basic facts of the murder. Some months before he shot Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth deposited funds in the Montreal, Canada bank regularly used by the operatives of Confederate Secret Service head Judah Benjamin. John Surrat, a regular Judah Benjamin agent, confessed to plotting with Booth to abduct Lincoln, and admitted to using that Montreal bank for Benjamin's funds.

In the museum which they keep at the assassination site at Ford's Theatre, the National Parks Service displays a decoding sheet, found by police in John Wilkes Booth's trunk. Displayed alongside it is a matching coding device which was found in the office of Judah Benjamin.

At the time John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln, Booth's old acquaintance Benjamin Peixotto was international president of the B'nai B'rith. Only hours before going to Ford's Theatre to shoot the President, Booth met with his old friend B'nai B'rith Washington chief Simon Wolf, for a confidential discussion over some drinks. Simon Wolf later claimed that at this meeting, Booth told him about a woman who had turned down Booth's marriage proposal. That evening, Booth murdered Abraham Lincoln, and Wolf attributed the killing to Booth's anguish over his broken heart. (So, the "lone assassin" story of John Hinckley and Jody Foster is an old story.) Simon Wolf was later a prime founder of the Anti-Defamation League.

And how does a 71/2 year old newspaper article qualify as "The latest" concerning any subject especially an actively employed person? More recent is that he was obviously not convicted since he is still a practicing lawyer.

Everyone knows that Terry takes her messiah and his disciples pronouncements as gospel but I (and I expect others) would like to see some sort of documentation before believeing such claims.

My mistake. Harry is Louis Mortimer Bloomfields nephew. Now that clears things up :lol: (And lets not forget that Lord Harlech's daughter was Eric Clapton's fiancee and not his wife :lol: ). Where would we all be without Mr. Google? In any event the lesson remains the same. Whether he is Louis's son or his brother son, the Bloomfields are deeply linked to those forces that have intended the destruction of the United States going back to the American Revolution.

If Colby knew anything about history he would know that during the Civil War the Bnai Brith was an arm of British intelligence working inside the USA against Abraham Lincoln and the Union. It plays the same role to this very day. The Bnai Brith played the pivotal role in the murder of Abraham Lincoln on behalf of the British. Nearly 100 years later Louis Mortimer Bloomfield would carry out the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on behalf of this same British Empire.

Thanks Len for catching my error. It allowed me to more fully explain who the Bloomfield family really is and what they represent.

"Terry's link doesnt support her claim". You're a classic.

Hi,

For those interested, I have just published another post about the Bloomfield Archives.

in order to keep this forum entry short, I'm just reproducing the beginning of this article, but you can read it all at : http://somesecretsforyou.blogspot.com/2010...-should-be.html

There is three new documents in this post.

==============================

WHY THE BLOOMFIELD ARCHIVES SHOULD BE RELEASED

IN THE UNITED STATES,

THE BLOOMFIELD ARCHIVES

WOULD BE PUBLIC

In its treatment of the Bloomfield papers, Library and Archives Canada (LAC) seems to be guided by an old suspect ideology according to which the purpose of National Archives is to hide documents rather than to preserve them and make them available. For the archaist archivists adhering to this vision, collecting documents is a mean to get them out of circulation, and preservation means protecting them from the public view.

Already, it is a shame to see LAC keeping secret documents that its donator wanted to make public. But, in view of the nature of the Bloomfield Archives and of the treatment they would be given by the US National Archives, we can also affirm that LAC is fantasying when it considers itself as a modern archives institution, that is as an organization where the people’s right to access historical information is a fundamental value.

The available Bloomfield Archives, and more particularly the papers dating from 1960 and that LAC kept secret until January 2010, contain dozens and dozens of letters documenting Permindex and Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC) history. Like most of the JFK Assassination researchers know, those two Italian firms, perhaps wrongly, perhaps rightly, were widely identified in newspapers, books and reports as being CIA fronts related to the JFK Assassination. Very conservatively, we can estimate that the Bloomfield files from years 1961 to 1964 that LAC are still keeping secret, may include hundreds of letters relating to Permindex, like the two below.

It doesn't; neither word "intelligence" nor any of it variants or equivalents nor the names of any intelligence agencies or (AFAIK) any know fronts appear in the article nor is any indication Bloomfield was working on anyone else behalf.Only one British person was mentioned and there was no indication he was working on anyone else's behalf.

All it says is that he was a "former national vice-president of B'Nai Brith Canada" you have failed to provide any evidence to back your contention the group was a part of British intelligence. Even if true are we to assume all leaders of the group were intel operatives? My grandmother was president of the woman's chapter of B'Nai Brith in Manhattan (or it might have been just the Upper West Side) was she a British spy too? AFAIK she never even visited Britain and her only relative who lived there was a granddaughter who moved to London long after she died.

Hi,

I have just posted another text with documents from the Bloomfield Archives at http://somesecretsforyou.blogspot.com/ .

Below is the full text, but if you want to see the pictures of the documents, you'll have to go to the blog.

=======================================

THE BLOOMFIELD-ROTHSCHILDS LINK

A FEW MORE DOCUMENTS

As reported in a previous post, the Bloomfield Archives kept at Library and Archives Canada, contain documents that exposed, for the first time, an important relation between Montreal lawyer Louis M. Bloomfield and the Rothschild family.

Previously, I have reproduced a 1960 document showing that Louis Bloomfield was, with Baron Eugene de Rothschild, one of the shareholders of Tri Continental Pipe Line Ltd, a corporation that was granted by Israel 49 years exclusivity on the use of a 16-inch pipeline between the Red Sea and Haifa port on the Mediterranean sea.

I have also explained how Bloomfield’s relations to the Rothschild dated back to the Second World War when the Montreal lawyer had for client Oscar Federer, the manager of the Vitkovice iron plant of Czechoslovakia, an industrial complex held by the Rothschilds, that produced arms for the Nazis under German occupation.

The Bloomfield Archives include many others documents from which we can understand that the relation between Louis Bloomfield and the Rotschilds was significant.

Here is an extract of a January 15, 1965 letter from Louis M. Bloomfield to Alejandro Escandon, a member of one of the wealthiest family in Mexico. In this letter, Bloomfield confirms that the Rothschilds are not only his customers but his friends.

After having introduced Oscar Federer as one of his dearest friends, Bloomfield wrote:

“I brought him to Canada on the 8th August, 1940, and it was through him that I met and acted for the various members of the Rothchild family, who are still my friends (to a certain extent) and clients.”

Elsewhere in the Archives, a passionate 1949 letter from Louis Bloomfield to Baron Eugen de Rothschild shows the importance of the implication of the Montreal lawyer in the international businesses of the powerfull family.

After WWII, the possession of the Vitkovice Mining and Iron Corporation was the object of intense negotiations between the Rothschilds and the Czechoslovakian government. Those talks were complicated because, since 1937, through a clever scheme that implicated many holdings interests (including one Frejas corporation from Sweden), Vitkovice Corporation’s ownership have been transferred, to the English, Alliance Assurance Co, in order to keep it out of reach of the Nazis. But the same maze of legalities that resisted the German invader during the War, was now opposing the legitimate Czech government that wanted to control its crucial iron industry. Thus, to claim possession of Vitkovice, the Czech state could not use his own sovereignty to fix by itself the value of this property, but had to satisfy the exigencies of international laws, that means to pay the Rothschilds the price they were willing to accept.

In August 1949, four years after the end of the war, the negotiations were still opened and, at one point, Louis M. Bloomfield, the Montreal lawyer, felt that his European colleagues were trying to oust him from this case. He then addressed a vehement 3 pages letter to Baron Eugen de Rothschild to make clear to him that he was and has always been central in the Vitkovice scheme. Bloomfield stated:

“(…) I can only assume, therefore, that it is your intention to by-pass me completely in these negotiations. I am, therefore, obliged to call the following facts to your attentions:

It was I who brought the assets wich are presently the basis for negotiation out from Czechoslovakia to London.

It was I who succeeded in making an agreement with the Czechs that their Government would not touch these assets up to the present time.

It was I who deposited with New Court over L320,000.0s.0d. to pay dividends declared for 1937 and 1938.

It was I who succeeded in bringing the shares of Freja to England and Sweden; without these shares no discussions would now be taking place.

It was I who administered Freja jointly with Wetter since 18 years, and I am the only one with full knowledge of all the details concerning Freja.

All of the above would make my participation in the present negotiations in London not only useful but necessary. Further, my connections with the parties involved would enable me to learn unofficially the maximum payment that might be expected from the Czechs and this is a very important thing in view of the amounts involved.”

Such proclamations from Bloomfield himself clearly show that his relations with the Rothschilds revolved around very serious international business and that the Montreal lawyer wasn’t a minor participant in the Rothschild family universe. Furthermore, consider that in 1959, 10 years after that 1949 direct letter, Bloomfield was still making important business with Baron Eugen, by incorporating in Canada Eugen’s Tri Continental Pipeline, and you will have a sense of Bloomfield’s true importance.

Because they shed new light on international historical matters, the Bloomfield Archives located at Library and Archives Canada definitely are one of LAC most precious collection. It is unfortunate that LAC, instead of profiting from the reconnaissance and the fame that should come from offering to the world such historical treasures, have to suffer from the bad image it give itself by hiding an important part of this collection, and that against the will of its donator.

I think the correspondence with Chesler is significant, especially if it is Lou Chesler, the notorious Canadian industrialist who parlayed his uranium mine stocks into Forida land deals and casinos in the caribbean with Lansky.

If one declines to go into a business deal one would suspect there were other deals both before and after the one under discussion, and the correspondence establishes they at least knew each other and considered doing business.

It was in the Canadian uranium mine stock deal when Lou Chesler suposidely met Lansky.

There's also the question of whether Bloomfield was associated with Sir. William Stephenson, "Little Bill," the The Man Called INTREPID, also frequently identified as a Canadian industrialist.

Was there a mutual association between Bloomfield and Stephenson over the use of Camp X for OSS training, the defection of G ( INTREPID's Last Case) or the impersonation of Oswald at the Quebec to Guantamano March for Peace, an incident that involved the RCMP?

There is also the question of whther Bloomfield or Chesler were involved with Little Bill at his Jamacian Tryall Club, where John Connally, Jean DeMenil and other Texas characters were enticed to gamble and play golf.

The problem with trying to figure out how they played the game at that level is difficult since they often did deals privately and concluded with a shake of the hand, though since many of them were also lawyers it eventually is either put to legal paper or you read about it in the papers when it makes news a few years later.

Many of the old OSS records are now open, and we certainly know a lot obout the Rothschilds, so any dealings Bloomfield had with either of them should be well documented in archives not controlled by the Canadians who want to keep a lid on the Bloomfield papers.

I think it is Victor Rothschild who is the one Rothschild of special interest because of his assoction with MI5, and whose connections with Bloomfield would prove interesting.

Thanks for all your work Maurice,

And good luck to you,

Bill Kelly

Hi,

Just a word to let you know that I have post a new entry about Louis M. Bloomfield and Permindex at :

http://somesecretsforyou.blogspot.com/2010...dex-papers.html

Here is one of the 6 Permindex cables reproduced in this post and you'll find the full text below.

LMBFONDS2%20078%20permindex%20vineberg%20cable590407.jpg

=======================

THE PERMINDEX PAPERS

THE EXCLUSIVE INFORMATION THAT LIBRARY AND ARCHIVES CANADA IS KEEPING SECRET

As explained in the previous posts, the Louis Mortimer Bloomfield Archives kept at Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is a unique and rich collection of documents offering a unique perspective on many historical events of the twentieth century.

One of the most original aspects of the Bloomfield Archives is that they contain numerous exclusive documents about two Italian sisters corporations named Permindex and Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC) that were suspected to be used as front by intelligence agencies. Since one of CMC’s directors was Clay Shaw, the New Orleans businessman accused of conspiracy against President John F. Kennedy, rumours about the possible implication of Permindex in the JFK assassination have multiplied in newspapers, books and, now, on the internet.

Louis Mortimer Bloomfield, who donated its papers in 1978 to the Canadian Public Archives, under the condition that they were to be released 20 years after his death (i.e.: in 2004, since he died in 1984), was a Montreal lawyer involved in Permindex’s finance and development. By consequence, his archives contain hundreds of pieces such as cables and letters documenting the activities of this organization. The six cables below, dating from April 1959, are a sample of what can be found in the Boomfield Archives.

All the documents related to CMC and Permindex constitute a unique collection that should be designated as the “Permindex Papers”. Since Library and Archives Canada took the deliberate decision to negate its donator’s stipulation and is still holding secret about 30% of Mr Bloomfield Archives, only a minorities of the Permindex Papers are now available to the public, namely those dating from 1960 and before and having more than 50 years of age. Thus, the documents from years 1961 and higher are still held secret by LAC, and, particularly those of years 1962 and 1963, respectively the years when Clay Shaw joined CMC and the year of JFK assassination.

To fully appreciate the value of LAC’s Bloomfield Archives, we have to consider not only the number of documents that it contains pertaining to Permindex and CMC, but also that information on those two Italians companies has always been an extremely rare commodity.

To this day, the most objective and impartial study of Permindex to have been published was written in 1983 by author Stephen Dorril in Lobster, a British underground magazine of politics, parapolitics and history, (see the links below for more details). Under the title PERMINDEX: The International Trade in Disinformation author Dorril, after researching the origin of the Permindex story, came to the fundamental question:

“But what do we really know about the history of Permindex? Very little it seems. What I have pieced together comes primarily from a selection of newspaper clippings from Switzerland in the late 1950s and early 1960s. How accurate these are I can't say: the press cuttings are vague, internally inconsistent - Permindex was as much a mystery in the 1950s as it is today”.

This statement was made in 1983 and was still valid up to July 2009, the date when LAC finally opened part of the Bloomfield Archives and made available a few dozens document related to Permindex. Then in January 2010, files dating from 1960 and having reached fifty years of age were unlocked by LAC and more than an hundred additional letters and cables about Permindex were made available to the public.

LAC’s opening of the Bloomfield Archives means that, for the first time since the 1960’s, the Permindex mystery may be resolved through the availability of accurate documentation. Normally, any historical institution such as Library and Archives Canada should be proud to give access to information that is unavailable anywhere else, even more when this information related to one of the most important historical event of the twentieth century; the JFK assassination. After all, what is the purpose of an institution as LAC?

It is a pity and a shame to see LAC denying both its donator’s will and its mission. Such a behaviour make one wonders if LAC is acting this way just because some of the peoples in charge are not competent enough to evaluate the extraordinary value of the Bloomfield Archives, or, to the contrary, because someone at Library and Archives Canada found the information in those papers too important to be made public.

Only LAC, by its action or inaction, can give an answer to this interrogation.

From the 1978 edition of Dope, Inc. THE BRONFMAN GANG.

Take, for example, the case of Trizec, the holding company through which the Bronfman brothers ostensibly run their various corporations, including Seagram's. Since it was formed in 1960, the Bronfmans have never held a majority position within Trizec! Trizec is run by Eagle Star Ltd. of London, a holding company whose directors have been described by one author as "the most notable of the British aristocrats." [16] Evelyn de Rothschild, the earls and dukes who control Lloyds of London and other banking and insurance firms, and leading lights of British intelligence such as Sir Kenneth Strong and Sir Kenneth Keith, all converge on the board of Eagle Star. This extraordinary company owns English Property Corp. Ltd. whose principal individual shareholder, Laurie Marsh, has gained notoriety in Britain as the Prince of Pornography, for his ownership of the majority of pornographic movie theaters, massage parlors, and red light district real estate in London. [17] English Property Corp. Ltd. owns majority holdings in Trizec.

Neither are the brains behind the Bronfman empire situated between the ears of the members of the Bronfman family. The source lies elsewhere in the family's law firm of Phillips, Bloomfield, Vineberg and Goodman (now called Phillips and Vineberg).

The personage of family arbiter and attorney Lazarus Phillips, in particular, was a constant sore to Mr. Sam. Born into the upper crust of the Zionist elite, Lazarus Phillips succeeded in gaining all the recognition and respect that Mr. Sam could never seem to win. Phillips was a holder of the Order of the British Empire, a senator in the Canadian Parliament, a member of the board of directors of the Royal Bank of Canada, invited into the exclusive Mount Royal Club as a member, and was a powerbroker for the Liberal Party.

But without Phillips, the Bronfman family empire could not survive. It is likely that through him the Bronfmans received the input of cash that allowed them to proceed steadily from bootlegging to a "legitimate" corporate empire. Certainly it was Phillips who unfroze enough funds under export control from the grip of the Bank of Canada to finance Seagram's wartime expansion into the United States. As the final judge in all family matters legal and otherwise Phillips has sat on the board of Seagrams since 1940 and on every other company and philanthropic front nominally run by Mr. Sam. He is still the co-director of Trizec and the other major Bronfman holding company, Edper (named after Edgar and Peter Bronfman). Phillips is also the expert who managed to get the Bronfmans off every legal hook on which they ever got caught. [8]

Hi,

For those interested by the Permindex history, here is the text of my last entry on my blog at: http://somesecretsforyou.blogspot.com/.

This entry have for title:

THE UNKNOWN PERMINDEX STORY : CANADIAN ATTORNEYS, VENEZULEAN CORPORATION AND FRENCH ROTHSCHILD

and his showing that both Stanley Vineberg, from the Phillips, Bloomfield, Vineberg and Goodman firm, and Edmund Rothschild were related to Permindex.

Here is the text and one of the documents; the pictures of the other documents are on the blog.

=======================================

LMBFONDS2%20089%20permindex%20cable590220.jpg

THE PERMINDEX PAPERS II

THE UNKNOWN PERMINDEX STORY :

CANADIAN ATTORNEYS,

VENEZULEAN CORPORATION

AND FRENCH ROTHSCHILD

It is highly curious that sisters companies Permindex and Centro Mondiale Commerciale, with such ambitious names, didn’t make their marks in the business world. In reality, if it wasn’t for the fact that they became famous for their alleged association to the JFK assassination, those two companies wouldn’t have left any trace in history. When we consider that Permindex stands for Permanent Industrial Exhibition, we can only find suspect that, far from achieving permanency, this company was of the “Fly by Night” type, and that, instead of exhibiting anything, it was shrouded in a veil of secrecy.

Before the partial opening of the Louis Bloomfield Archives at Library and Archives Canada (LAC), the information about Permindex and CMC were very few. In his article, PERMINDEX: The International Trade in Disinformation, published in 1983 in Lobster magazine author Stephen Dorril synthesized the rare information then available about Permindex (see http://www.8bitmode.com/rogerdog/lobster/lobster02.pdf for the complete text) :

“The origins of Permindex appear to lie in New Orleans in 1948 - probably with Clay Shaw's International Trade Mart. In 1956 Permindex - apparently representing a "group of American business interests" - decided to move into Europe and set up in Basle, Switzerland. Two companies were set up under the auspices of the Permindex mother company: Building Finance (AG) and Parkhof (AG). (AG just indicates that this is a private company.) These two companies were supposed to buy land and develop it with skyscrapers, parks etc - the press accounts at the time were full of grandiose plans. The President of Permindex was Ferenc Nagy. But it appears that he was not the controller of the companies - more a nominal head, a front man who would appear attractive to Government officials and politicians. The only director who appears to have been identified was George Mantello, a Rumanian in Swiss business and media circles.”

“Permindex's plans in Basle appear to have generated considerable commercial suspicion. None of its plans came to fruition and the Basle press, which had earlier devoted columns and columns to its plans, became critical. In 1961 the Basle Workers' Paper (…) accused Nagy and Permindex of being "a bunch of swindlers". (…) Nagy sued for libel, won the case, but was awarded very small damages (...) Shortly after the trial Parkhof (AG) went bankrupt and, as one of the papers put it, it became clear that what Nagy and Permindex had been up to was a basic con.”

The new information available from the Louis Bloomfield Archives at LAC confirms this impression. As we have seen earlier, in 1960 Permindex was primarily engaged in a real estate speculative deal consisting of reselling Roman lands acquired at a “dirt cheap price” by 33rd degree Freemason George Mantello through his contact with the Royal Savoy family. Many of the documents in the Bloomfield Archives also corroborate that Mantello was the directing force behind Permindex, since Louis Bloomfield, in his letters and cables, seems to negotiate with him and to seek instructions from him relatively to Permindex’s business.

But, more then just confirming what was previously known, the Permindex documents in the Bloomfield Archives expose the full magnitude of this discreet company.

For instance, the few documents reproduced below show that :

1- Permindex and Mantello’s businesses extended to South America where a Venezuelan corporation with impressive capitalization was mounted by Bloomfield according to Mantello’s directives;

2- One of Bloomfield’s associates in the prestigious law firm Phillips, Bloomfield, Vineberg & Goodman, was implicated in the Permindex dealing and had enough importance as to authorize who will take part in the deal ;

3- Edmund de Rothschild through his Parisian Compagnie Financière was a participant in one of the earliest Permindex real estate deal.

The following 1959 letters and cables, presented in chronological order, illustrated the unknown extent of the Permindex activities.

In a very short cable addressed to Georges Mantello and dated February 20, 1959, Louis Bloomfield give a first hint that Permindex business extend to Venezuela, something that we will see in more detail with other documents.

In April 1rst 1959, Louis Bloomfield sent three communications that reveal both Stanley Vineberg and Edmund Rothschild’s links to Permindex. In a first cable, he urged Georges Mantello to have his son Enrico provide legal and fiscal documentation to someone called “Pereire”, in order for him to be able to inspect a property. Other documents in the Bloomfield Archives give the full identity of this “Pereire” as being François Pereire from the Compagnie Financière, a private Paris bank in which Edmund de Rothschild is the principal shareholder. In the same message, Bloomfield informed Mantello that Vineberg is expecting him in Montreal with “satisfactory documentation”. This statement clearly indicates that attorney Stanley Vineberg, of the Phillips, Bloomfield, Vineberg & Goodman law firm was exercising an authority greater then Bloomfield’s.

A second cable, sent the same day, confirms the above information. First, it is sent to a Pereire at COMPAFINAN, the cable code name for the Compagnie Financière. And it is informing Pereire that “Vineberg agreeable your tenpercent participation”, a phrase that both confirm that Rothschild’s Compagnie Financière had a 10 % interest in this Permindex real estate deal, but also that Stanley Vineberg had enough power in Permindex to have his word on the Rothschild’s participation in this deal.

Another document, dated April 1rst 1959, give us an indication that Louis Bloomfield was in personal contact with Edmund Rothschild and was discussing directly with him about the Permindex real estate affairs. In this letter sent to Abraham Friedman of the Israel Continental Oil Company in Israel, Bloomfield is referring to a previous cable in which he informed Pereire of his project to go to Paris and asked if he could meet Edmund (Rothschild) and discuss Capacotta. The name of a sea front region near Rome, Capacotta was the location of one of the Permindex real estate speculative deal.

Alone, those four documents from the Bloomfield Archives held by Library and Archives Canada, give us unprecedented historical information about Permindex, the very discreet company that, rightly or not, was seen as being related to the JFK assassination. If four one-page documents can bring us so much new information, we have to wonder how much more is contained in the hundreds of other Permindex papers that LAC is still keeping secret against its donator's will? Perhaps, we should also wonder why Library and Archives Canada is behaving in such way?

Hi,

Here is the text of my last post about the Bloomfield Archive. It is a long one with eight pictures of documents. I'm reproducing the most interesting document below, but you can see the others at: Some Secrets for You

THE PERMINDEX PAPERS III

THE INTERNATIONAL REAL ESTATE DEAL

In the previous post, we have seen four Permindex documents originating from the Bloomfield Archives kept at Library and Archives Canada (LAC). They allowed us to learn that Montreal attorney Stanley Vineberg, from the Phillips, Bloomfield, Vineberg and Goodman law office, and French bankers Edmund Rothschild and François Pereire were participants in one of the earliest Permindex real estate deal that took place in 1959.

The next series of Permindex papers reproduced below will help us understand the nature of this secretive organisation and the part that each actor was playing in it. Principally, they demonstrate that, at least in one Permindex 1959 real estate deal, Montreal lawyer Stanley Vineberg played a prominent role and was consulted by his law associate Louis Bloomfield at every stage of the transaction. The documents also allow us to understand that, in 1959, Georges Mantello, a 33rd degree Freemason, was using Permindex to mount financial transactions. In the real estate deal referred to in those documents, Mantello appears as a realtor whose function is to find buyers for a property sold by Countess Calvi who is represented by Carlo d’Amelio, an Italian count who is also acting as president for Centro Mondiale Comerciale, Permindex’s parent corporation. For his part, Louis Bloomfield appears to be the representative of a syndicate of buyers ready to pay to take possession of the Countess Calvi’s property. For those buyers, the main interest was to invest in real estate whose value was supposed to skyrocket, but, as we will see later, those buyers didn’t acquire lot of land but shares in Permindex or in others corporation like the Panamean Marina Reale corporation, that were the registered owners of the properties.

It is interesting to note that some of those documents, like the three next cables sent by Louis Bloomfield to Georges Mantello between April 6 and April 10 1959, put together and viewed with other brusque letters in the archives, allow us to understand that the communications between the Canadian lawyer Bloomfield and Georges Mantello, the Italian Permindex’s director, aren’t perfect and that their relations are a little tense. Again, this knowledge tends to make us review the fast and too hurried conclusion, made by some authors, of seeing lawyer Louis Bloomfield as the supreme head of Permindex, and thus as the engineer of the JFK assassination; a line of thought that have for starting hypothesis the assumption that Permindex is somehow related to this historical crime. Remember that those, in JFK assassination literature, who view Bloomfield as a potential participant in the Dallas conspiracy, have done so because he was described as the “main shareholder of Permindex for parties unknown”.

The first cable, dated April 6 1959, by itself seems innocuous. Its only contains a line with the question: “When are you coming?”, and an imperative demand: “Cable immediately!” But, and it will become evident in view of other documents, this communication is a sign of the impatience and irritation that Bloomfield resent toward Mantello.

We don’t know exactly what answer Bloomfield received from Mantello because the part of the Bloomfield Archives containing most of the Permindex documents consists of books of outgoing correspondence from the Montreal lawyer to his correspondents. But the next day, on April 7, 1959, Bloomfield cabled Mantello his instructions. In clear, Bloomfield asked Mantello to transfer his participation of 100 000 $ in the real estate deal to the account of Stanley Vineberg at Montreal Royal bank. When this amount will be received, Bloomfield, through the Royal Bank, will cable a total of 350 000$ to the Bank Lavoro in Roma as a deposit for the payment to be made at the conclusion of the deal.

Then, three days later, on April 10, Bloomfield, who probably had receive the money, sent a direct message to Mantello, telling the Italian director that he didn’t respect his promise of cabling some documents for examination prior to Mantello visit to Miami, the following week. This information about a Miami meeting is quite intriguing. After learning in previous cables that Bloomfield and Mantello projected a trip to Venezuela related to Permindex, we now discover that, in order to complete the Permindex deal, they considered going to Florida. Further cables will teach us the reason of this trip.

Bloomfield had to be patient with the Italian director, because his archives only shows echoes of their dealing 17 days later on April 27. At that date, Bloomfield sent a cable and a letter to his law associate Stanley Vineberg who is in Miami Beach on the Don Quixote boat.

In the cable, Bloomfield announced that the Mantellos (Georges and his son Enrique) and Carlo d’Amelio will arrive Friday night, the first of May; then he asked Vineberg if he can meet them in New York. To his letter, Bloomfield joined a copy of a Contract of Sale.

Since it is a normal occurrence for Canadian businessmen to spend part of the cold winter in Florida, and since some Montreal newspapers mentioned that Stanley Vineberg was doing so in 1959, we can deduct that the Miami trip had for primary purpose a meeting with him. But, the fact that both Bloomfield and Mantello would consider such a displacement in relation to the Permindex real estate deal, reveal that Vineberg was playing a prominent part in this business.

Stanley Vineberg’s importance is confirmed in the following May 8th letter from Louis Bloomfield to Carlo d’Amelio in which Bloomfield wrote that “Mr Vineberg and I will make arrangement to come to Rome toward the end of this month in order to work out a physical division of the property mutually satisfactory to both parties.”

Five days later, on May 13th, 1959, another letter from the same correspondents confirms that Louis Bloomfield had to consult Stanley Vineberg on details of the real estate deal such as the bank to use in the money transfer.

In all evidence, the transfer of money was done and real estate deal that was the object of the above communications was closed; at least, for a few months the Bloomfield Archives contain no document referring to this deal.

Then, in July 17th we find echoes of the Venezuelan project for which Bloomfield and Mantello were contemplating a trip to South America. In a July 17th letter, Bloomfield ask Mantello if he should form a Canadian corporation that should issue debentures for an amount of 26 millions Bolivars. And ask: “When are we going to Venezuela?”

For those who think that this new project and future trip is a sign of good relationship between Bloomfield and Mantello, the next document will prove that the honeymoon, if there was one, wasn’t very long.

We have no trace of an actual trip to Venezuela, but three months later a Bloomfield letter to Joseph Slifka, a New York businessman, shows that the Montreal lawyer and the Italian Freemason had a serious confrontation. In this October 20th. 1959 letter, Bloomfield relate: “I still have not recovered from the shock of your telephone conversation today when you told me that I should have arranged to see that the cheque which you issued to Mantello personally was made out to the Banco Nazionale del Lavoro.”

“To refresh your memory, Bernard (Bloomfield) was in the room at the time, I completely lost my temper with Mantello and wanted to walk out of the room when he refused to treat the affair in an orderly manner and have the cheques made out to the bank.”

Reading about such friction between Bloomfield and Mantello, Permindex’s Italian director, really made one doubt that the Montreal lawyer was in control of Permindex. Thus, even if we accept the possibility that this company was used to finance the JFK assassination, we should consider that others then Bloomfield were the true controllers behind the shadowy firm.

Again, such findings make us understand the reasons why Louis Bloomfield, whose name was associated with Permindex and the JFK assassination in literature published first in 1968 and most largely in 1978, gave his archives to what was then named the Canadian Public Archives. They also make us understand how much Library and Archives Canada, who still refuse to open part of Bloomfield Archives against its donator’s will, is making itself an obstacle to the knowledge of historical truth and to the reestablishment of Louis Bloomfield’s reputation.
