More About the Fascist Element in the Zionist Movement: “The Iron Wall” Stratagem

In future programs, we will explore the fascist/Zionist connection at greater length. Something interesting to contemplate is this: has the U.S. replaced fascist Italy as the "Iron Wall" that Vladimir Jabotinsky sought to ensure the viability of Zionist development of Israel? Netanyahu's blatant attemt at subverting not only Obama's foreign policy but his administration, as well, is playing superbly into the theme of "a Jewish conspiracy controls America on behalf of Israel." This theme resonates effectively with traditional anti-Semitic pronouncements such as "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion." In a future program, we will ruminate about the role of "Bormann Jews" in Israel, and the extent to which they MIGHT influence that country's policies.

Can You Put Lipstick on a Nazi? (Part 2): Update on Ukraine

Lis­ten (MP3):  This pro­gram was recorded in one, 60-minute segment

The Ukrain­ian elec­tion results have pro­duced hosan­nas in the West about the far-right par­ties hav­ing been mar­gin­al­ized in the vote. Noth­ing could be far­ther from the truth. Svoboda–one of the OUN/B heirs on the Ukrain­ian polit­i­cal landscape–has rep­re­sen­ta­tion in par­lia­ment, as does the Rad­i­cal Party of Oleg (“Oleh”) Lyashko, who helped form many of the fas­cist mili­tias active in the civil war in the nation’s East­ern sec­tion. (Svoboda’s leader is pic­tured at right, salut­ing at a rally.) Dimytro Yarosh, head of Pravy Sek­tor also won a seat in par­lia­ment, though Pravy Sek­tor fared poorly at the polls. What has received lit­tle cov­er­age is the fact that the so-called “mod­er­ate,” “pro-EU” par­ties such as Poroshenko’s party and Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front have incor­po­rated some of the worst of the Ukrain­ian fas­cists. Poroshenko has OUN/B wartime pres­i­dent Jaroslav Stetsko’s per­sonal sec­re­tary (Roman Svarych) as an adviser, along with Oleh Makhnit­sky, the for­mer jus­tice min­is­ter from Svo­boda. Yat­senyuk has peo­ple from the fas­cist Azov Bat­tal­ion in the ranks of his orga­ni­za­tion. The effects of hav­ing peo­ple from Svo­boda in charge of the judi­cial process can be sam­pled from the attempt to pin the sniper killings in the Maidan demon­stra­tions on a leader of Yanukovich’s secu­rity forces. “Pho­tographed” hold­ing a sniper rifle with two hands–supposedly the “proof”–Dmytro Sadovnyk only has ONE hand, hav­ing lost the other to a grenade in a train­ing acci­dent years ago. The Poroshenko gov­ern­ment has been using clus­ter muni­tions against its own citizens.

Greek Privatization Proceeds for Anti-Poverty Policies? Probably Not, But We’ll See With negotiations between Greece and the troika over how to resolve the latest austerity-impasse still ongoing, Greece make an intriguing offer: Continue with the privatization of state assets that the troika demands, use the proceeds on Greece's humanitarian crises instead of immediately paying back Greece's creditors. And while the troika has yet to formally rule out Greece's proposal, European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker made an uncharacteristic offer last week of 2 billion euros to "support efforts to create growth and social cohesion in Greece". Considering virtually all past attitudes by the troika regarding Greece's "growth and social cohesion". So by wrapping its humanitarian aid proposal within a privatization mandate Greece did the seemingly impossible: the troika's position on Greece is slightly less crazy than before. That almost never happens. And still probably isn't happening. Read more »
