The Luxembourg Connection (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by "Underground Reich," Part 2)

Lis­ten (MP3): Side 1   Side 2  


This broad­cast illus­trates the deep polit­i­cal rela­tion­ships that evolved from the Third Reich’s for­mal mil­i­tary occu­pa­tion of Europe. These rela­tion­ships are inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the remark­able and deadly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work that forms the basis of much of Mr. Emory’s ana­lyt­i­cal par­a­digm. (Bor­mann is pic­tured at right, seated with Hein­rich Himm­ler.) Taken in con­cert, they help to illus­trate what Mr. Emory means by “Under­ground Reich.” Angela Merkel’s selec­tion of aus­ter­ity advo­cate Jean-Claude Juncker as Pres­i­dent of the Euro­pean Union Com­mis­sion will see a long-time Ger­man ally and son of a Wehrma­cht com­bat­ant ascend to the pin­na­cle of EU gov­er­nor­ship. The con­nec­tions dom­i­nat­ing the back­ground and char­ac­ter of the Ger­manophile Juncker track back to the Nazi occu­pa­tion of Lux­em­bourg dur­ing World War II and car­tel con­nec­tions that facil­i­tated the Third Reich’s amoeba-like absorp­tion of the Euro­pean econ­omy. Dur­ing the Nazi occu­pa­tion, Luxembourg’s econ­omy was folded into “Europa Ger­man­ica,” with Gus­tav Koenigs, Chair­man of the Bush-Family linked Hamburg-Amerika Line and Sec­re­tary of State of the Third Reich over­see­ing the steel car­tel ARBED and much of Luxembourg’s other busi­ness. After the war, Lux­em­bourg con­tin­ued to be a pri­mary ele­ment of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal network.

Pterrafractyl's Nest

Beware of Dragon Slayers Bearing Bad Ideas. They Might Not Be Fair. Or Useful As should be obvious to nearly everyone with an internet connection these days, Google is both really useful and kind of terrifying given the scope of how much Google knows about nearly all of us and how much it controls what we know. The fact that Google's list of corporate ambitions includes things like 'owning the internet' and owning the internet's pipes doesn't really. And then there's the killer robots and wage-theft. All in all, it's not hard to hope Google gets Scroogled. Soon. But there's more than one way to screw Google and not everyone that fears Google is some random consumer. Major corporate entities also fear Google and it just so happens that a coalition of many of the largest publisher in Europe has a plan to slay the Google Dragon they fear so much. Unfortunately, this coalition might slay "fair use" across the internet in the process. That's right, copyright law could be getting a big 'upgrade' in the digital realm as part of a new anti-Google initiative in a way that upgrades the bottom line of the biggest publishers and downgrades everyone else's general ability to find news articles and talk about the world. This is happening. Read more »
