Hitler

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Hitler's Secret Plan to Kill Pope Pius XII

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - July 14, 2007
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Dan Kurzman, Todd Standing

Ian spoke with author Dan Kurzman about Adolf Hitler's covert plan to invade the Vatican, seize its treasures, and kidnap and kill Pope Pius XII. Hitler had wanted the pope neutralized because he believed the pope was partially responsible for the fall of Mussolini, Kurzman explained, and would eventually denounce Hitler's Final Solution, the Nazi plan to exterminate all Jewish people.

Kurzman learned of this little-known story during a 1974 interview with former SS General Karl Wolff, the man Hitler had ordered to carry out his secret plot. Wolff had worked with Heinrich Himmler to implement Hitler's Final Solution. Specifically, Wolff was in charge of transporting box cars filled with Jews to death camps, Kurzman said.

Wolff was given two weeks to plan his mission to Rome. The plot called for a group of SS officers to infiltrate the Vatican dressed in Italian army uniforms. Kurzman said they were to kill the cardinals, make it appear like the pope had tried to escape and kill him too. According to Kurzman, Wolff (along with a group of high-ranking German officers) decided to sabotage Hitler's plan in an effort to win the Pope's gratitude and possibly save his own life when the war ended.

Bigfoot Investigations

In the first hour, documentarian Todd Standing shared new info about his ongoing Bigfoot investigations. Standing said he has captured a Bigfoot at least twice on video, and claims that he and his team can repeatedly get within 40 yards of these creatures. According to Standing, these animals live together in groups and are extremely sensitive to the presence of humans. He has been seeking species protection for Bigfoot in Canada and the United States.
