Election interference? BMW billionaire — with Nazi ties — wants EUROPE to make sure Trump can't get reelected
During a speech for his mother’s charitable foundation, billionaire heir of BMW Stefan Quandt told attendees that the people of Europe "should do everything in [their] power" to stop Donald Trump from being reelected in 2024.
"Now, that seems like election interference," BlazeTV's Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "How is it they're going to prevent Donald Trump from over in Europe?"
So, who is this money mogul from Germany who is attacking the former president of the United States and urging Europe to meddle in our elections?
According to historian and author of “Nazi Billionaires: The Dark History of Germany’s Wealthiest Dynasties” David de Jong, Quandt comes from a long line of auto-industry titans who owe their economic success to the Nazi Party.
"Today, two of the [Quandt] family’s heirs have a net worth of roughly $38 billion, control BMW, Mini, and Rolls-Royce,and have significant holdings in the chemical and technology industries. The family’s patriarchs, Günther Quandt and his son Herbert Quandt, were members of the Nazi Party who subjected as many as 57,500 people to forced or slave labor in their factories, producing weapons and batteries for the German war effort.
"Günther Quandt acquired companies from Jews who were forced to sell their businesses at below-market value and from others who had their property seized after Germany occupied their countries. Herbert Quandt helped with at least two such dubious acquisitions and also oversaw the planning, building, and dismantling of an uncompleted concentration subcamp in Poland ... two of his children, Stefan Quandt and Susanne Klatten, are Germany’s wealthiest family, with near-majority control of BMW. The siblings manage their fortunes in a town near Frankfurt from a building named after their grandfather," de Jong wrote in a New York Times op-ed.
De Jong also noted that while none of this is "exactly a secret in modern Germany," these "heirs of Nazi fortunes" are still widely celebrated as "symbols of German industrial ingenuity and excellence."
A recent report by Germany’s "Focus Money" would seem to confirm de Jong's assertion. The publication called Quandt "Germany's model industrialist" before going on to relay how the "usually reserved" entrepreneur called on the people of Europe to interfere with America's presidential election.
“Fortunate for Europe and the entire free world is that Joe Biden is the legitimate President of the United States today. And we should do everything in our power to keep it that way,” Quandt urged.
"If we want to keep the economic power in the country, then we have to do more," Quandt went on to add.
A Fortune Magazine article jumped on the opportunity to use Quandt's warning to spread more fear about the possibility of a second Trump presidency. The article highlighted Trump’s "abrasive" history with Germany while conveniently leaving out any mention of the Quandt dynasty's part in Germany's dark past.
"Quandt and his older sister Susanne Klatten, Germany’s wealthiest woman, control nearly half of the outstanding stock in BMW. The stake was inherited from their father, Herbert, who rescued the company in 1960 with the help of BMW trade unionist Kurt Golda," reported Fortune.
You'll notice that there's no mention of Herbert Quandt's nefarious activities in Germany during the Nazi era or how he "rescued" BMW from bankruptcy after inheriting an ill-gotten fortune from his father.
But, sure, the real danger to "the entire free world" is that bad orange guy who cracked down on "Germany's model industrialist" in an effort to strengthen the U.S. economy, create jobs, and boost domestic production.
Architectural plans have been leaked from the Ministry of Environment & Climate Change Canada (ECCC) that indicate Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's administration intends to "weaponize the climate change agenda," according to reporter Keean Bexte of the Counter Signal.
The report reveals detailed plans to build a new "Climate Police" facility in Winnipeg, Canada, complete with a "firearms armoury, interrogation rooms, biological labs, media relations offices, controlled quiet rooms, and intelligence facilities."
Bexte also notes a job posting on Indeed.com showing that the Ministry is actively recruiting an unspecified number of "Environmental Enforcement Officers," but Environment Canada has denied "creating a new enforcement function," specifying "Our Enforcement Branch is not new," on a September 1 Twitter post.
"If you want to see what 'climate enforcement' looks like, take a look at what Canada is building: A massive facility in the middle of Canada's agricultural heartland that will house everything from an armory and interrogation rooms to biolabs and 'controlled quiet rooms,'" Glenn Beck said on the radio program.
"And, lo and behold, the plan for this facility — and to allow 'climate police' to enter premises without a warrant — was hidden in a massive bill," he added. "The Impact Assessment Act is what gave it power — this passed in the final days of Trudeau's majority government — and it gave sweeping power to Minister Enforcement Officers. But nobody knew what that was. It was just in that bill."
In recent months, the Biden administration (which would, of course, never hide anything sketchy in a massive bill) has increased its own climate enforcement. But are all these policies making things better or worse? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn break it down. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Brigham Young University banned a fan accused of yelling racial slurs at Duke women’s volleyball player Rachel Richardson during a high-profile match in Provo, Utah, last Friday. But while Duke, BYU, and the media have quickly jumped on the story, John Ziegler, host of "With the Benefit of Hindsight" argues there are some major problems with this story.
Ziegler joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to lay out how the story evolved, why he believes it is actually a hoax, and why he thinks it proves "journalism is dead."
"This [story] if true, is obviously horrendous," Ziegler began. "Also, if true, at a sold-out event — this was sold out at BYU with over 5, 000 people — in 2022, where everyone has a cellphone and where this game was being streamed live ... and there [was] no video evidence of it. None. I mean this is impossible. It is absolutely impossible that in this day and age there would be no witnesses, no video, no indication of this whatsoever. But that doesn't necessarily prove it didn't happen," he continued.
Ziegler went on to explain that the story evolved after Richardson’s godmother, who is apparently running for political office, made the incident public by tweeting about it after the game (though it is unclear if she was actually there) and ended in a "human sacrifice being thrown into to the PC volcano."
\u201cTo review, here are red flags about this BYU story the media willfully ignored\u2026\n\n-Story broke in a tweet from \u201cGodmom\u201d who was apparently not there & is running for political office\n-Duke lost the game in front of a sold-out crowd\n-0 video of ANYTHING\n-Racist not ID\u2019d in ANY way\u201d— John Ziegler (@John Ziegler) 1661713070
Ziegler also told Glenn he believes this story proves truth no longer matters in today’s society: "It’s dangerous, it’s really frustrating, and it’s really sad."

Liberals love to talk about all the words that Shakespeare invented. They love to use words based in mythology. But bring up the influence of the Bible and they’ll start hissing like a viper. Everything they claim to be is nothing but a bad imitation of Christianity.
Their delusions have no basis in reality. The Bible has had a greater impact than Shakespeare or Mythology ever could. Not to mention the fact that Shakespeare’s work, with an estimated 1,350 Biblical references, is proof of this.
As for mythology, the Bible tells a story unlike anything ever told, most of all by myth, which is accurately a synonym for “lie.”
The Bible is the most influential book ever written.
From the works of Michelangelo to the films of Quentin Tarantino, the Bible is foundational. One of the most powerful scenes in pulp fiction is when Samuel L. Jackson’s character quotes Ezekiel 25:17.
Reports about the spread of atheism often imply the death of religion, like it’s a victory. But really, what they mean is that they hate Christianity. What they’re doing isn’t religious, it’s POLITICAL.
In reality, it could never lead to a post-religion world, because politics is a child to religion, so the collapse of religion would lead to annihilation.
This is not an exaggeration. Society itself is founded on religion. So while atheism may occasionally APPEAR to be on the rise, there’s no such thing as an atheistic society.
Some of the Biblical phrases that appear in our everyday language include:
- "eye for an eye"
- “land of milk and honey”
- “forbidden fruit”
- "bottomless pit"
- "two-edged sword"
- "God forbid"
- “Land of Nod”
- “by the sweat of your brow”
- “apple of my eye”
- “fire and brimstone”
- “ashes to ashes, dust to dust”
- “a man after my own heart”
- "broken heart”
- “wits’ end”
- “bite the dust”
- “put words in my mouth”
- “put your house in order”
- "nothing but skin and bones”
- “by the skin of your teeth”
- "nothing new under the sun”
- “a little birdie told me”
- “rise and shine”
- “can a leopard change his spots”
- “eat drink and be merry”
- “writing on the wall”
- “drop in a bucket”
- “fly in the ointment”
- “four corners of the earth”
- “see eye to eye”
- “salt of the earth”
- “go the extra mile”
- “pearls before swine”
- “fall by the wayside”
- “straight and narrow”
- “wolf in sheep’s clothing”
- “blind leading the blind"
- “the 11th hour”
- “kiss of death”
- “give up the ghost”
- “wash your hands of the matter"
- "the truth will set you free”
- “twinkling of an eye”
- “labor of love”
- “live by the sword die by the sword”
- “fall from grace”
- “fight the good fight”
- “the powers that be”
You know the famous line from the song Money by Pink Floyd? It’s a rip-off of Timothy 6:10.
But the Bible is even more influential than these phrases.
More than a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, the Bible reveals the foundation of language itself. In fact, the philosophical study of language is based on the prologue to the Gospel of John. In “the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Teddy Roosevelt once said that “no other book of any kind ever written in English has ever so affected the whole life of a people.”
A literary masterpiece written by uneducated men, the Bible is the best-selling book of all time, with between five and seven BILLION copies sold. For reference, an estimated 800 million copies of the Quran, and 200 million copies of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
The Bible is also the most shoplifted book.
It was the first book ever printed, after Johannes Gutenberg chose it as the first book for his printing press. Education as we know it is based on the Bible.
Christianity is the foundation of modern politics and law. Leviticus 25:10 (“Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof”) appears on the Liberty Bell.
When Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech on the National Mall, 250,000 people witnessed a sermon. He referenced four scriptures in the speech. Amos 5:24, Isaiah 40:4, Psalm 30:5, and Galatians 3:28.
Without the Bible, freedom as we know it could not exist. Sure, Plato talked about Democracy 300 years before Jesus came to earth. But Democracy is nothing without the political freedom that Christianity gave us.
The right to a fair trial appears in Deuteronomy 19:15 and Exodus 21:23–25.
Christian monks founded the earliest health care systems using the principles of the Bible as their guide.
The Left’s obsession with destroying Christianity is the same as their obsession with destroying Western society.
They remind me of Daniel 7:25, which describes the Antichrist, “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
They speak like children, they understand like children, they think like children. Ultimately, they’re just hypocrites, who may be able to evaluate the appearance of the sky, but not the signs of the times.
