FTR #967 Update on Ukrainian Fascism, the “Russia-Gate” Psy-Op and the Possibility of a Third World War

This pro­gram affords a vista on sev­er­al crit­i­cal polit­i­cal and nation­al secu­ri­ty land­scapes, includ­ing the use of nuclear pow­er plants as an eco­nom­ic weapon and sab­o­taged via phys­i­cal inter­dic­tion or cyber-inter­fer­ence.

After exam­in­ing a sup­posed “Russ­ian-med­dling” inci­dent which was actu­al­ly an ANTI-Russ­ian inci­dent to use Ukrain­ian nuclear pow­er plants to super­sede the old Sovi­et pow­er grid in for­mer republics of the U.S.S.R., we note the con­tin­ued dom­i­nance of the Ukrain­ian polit­i­cal land­scape by vir­u­lent fas­cists evolved from the World War II era OUN/B.

We con­clude with a ter­ri­fy­ing look at the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the sabotaging/hacking of nuclear pow­er plants could lead to a Third World War.

With the media and polit­i­cal estab­lish­ments turn­ing hand­springs over “Rus­sia-gate,” we exam­ine in detail one of the inci­dents promi­nent in the pre­sen­ta­tion of the sup­po­si­tion that “our democ­ra­cy” was manip­u­lat­ed by the Rus­sians.

In late Jan­u­ary, Trump point man for “mat­ters Russian”–CIA/FBI oper­a­tive Felix Sater, a long-time asso­ciate of his and Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and a Ukrain­ian par­lia­men­tar­i­an named Andrii Arte­menko were propos­ing a cease-fire/­peace plan for Ukraine. This has been spun by our media as con­sti­tut­ing yet anoth­er of the “Rus­sia con­trols Trump” man­i­fes­ta­tions.

The facts, how­ev­er, reveal that this was not a “pro-Russ­ian” gam­bit but an ANTI-Russ­ian gam­bit! In addi­tion to the CIA/FBI affil­i­a­tion of Sater, it should be not­ed that Arte­menko was part of the Pravy Sek­tor milieu in Ukraine, one of the most vir­u­lent of the OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions in pow­er in that benight­ed nation.

Sater, Arte­menko and oth­ers were work­ing on a plan to reha­bil­i­tate Ukrain­ian nuclear pow­er plants in order to gen­er­ate elec­tric­i­ty for Ukraine and the Baltic states, free­ing those for­mer Sovi­et republics from their old Sovi­et elec­tri­cal pow­er grids. The aging Sovi­et grids are a remain­ing ele­ment for poten­tial Russ­ian influ­ence in these areas.

Andrii Arte­menko:

1.-” . . . is a pop­ulist politi­cian with ties to the far-right Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary-polit­i­cal group “Right Sec­tor” and a mem­ber of the pro-West­ern oppo­si­tion par­lia­men­tary coali­tion led by for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Yulia Tymoshenko’s par­ty. . . .. . . . Arte­menko, who is a staunch ally of Valen­tyn Naly­vaichenko, a for­mer head of Ukraine’s secu­ri­ty ser­vice with lofty polit­i­cal ambi­tions, has aligned him­self with oth­er West-lean­ing pop­ulists like Tymoshenko. . . .”
2.-” . . . . has a wife who is a mod­el, he served 2.5 years in prison with­out a tri­al, he has busi­ness in U.S and he is involved in the mil­i­tary trade to the war zones in the Mid­dle East. At home, he has close ties with the ultra-nation­al­is­tic Right Sec­tor. . . .”
3.-” . . . accord­ing to his pre­vi­ous e‑declaration in 2015, Arte­menko has a wife, mod­el Oksana Kuch­ma and four chil­dren, includ­ing two with U.S. cit­i­zen­ship — Edward Daniel, Amber Kather­ine. . . .”
4.-” . . . . found­ed sev­er­al com­pa­nies that pro­vid­ed mil­i­tary logis­tics ser­vices into the con­flict zones and trav­eled to Sau­di Ara­bia, Syr­ia, and Qatar for busi­ness trips. . . .”
5.-” . . . . is the deputy head of the Euro­pean Inte­gra­tion Com­mit­tee and respon­si­ble for diplo­mat­ic con­nec­tions with Sau­di Ara­bia, Qatar, Unit­ed States, Kuwait, Lithua­nia and Belarus. . . .”
6.-” . . . . joined the Right Sec­tor polit­i­cal par­ty and was rumored to be one of the spon­sors of its leader, Dmytro Yarosh, dur­ing his pres­i­den­tial elec­tion cam­paign in 2014. There is even a pho­to of Arte­menko, seat­ing among the Right Sec­tor Par­ty founders at the first par­ty meet­ing in March 2014. Right Sec­tor spokesper­son Artem Sko­ropad­sky told the Kyiv Post on Feb. 20 that he couldn’t con­firm or deny whether Arte­menko financed the Right Sec­tor Par­ty. . . .”

Any­thing but a “pro-Russ­ian” agent. Again, he was work­ing with Trump point man for mat­ters Russ­ian Felix Sater on this deal to pro­vide nuclear-gen­er­at­ed elec­tric­i­ty to some for­mer Sovi­et republics. Again, an anti-Russ­ian plot, NOT a pro-Russ­ian plot!

Next, we note that June 30th has been estab­lished as a com­mem­o­ra­tive cel­e­bra­tion in Lvov [Lviv]. It was on June 30, 1941, when the OUN‑B announced an inde­pen­dent Ukrain­ian state in the city of Lviv. That same day marked the start of the Lviv Pograms that led to the death of thou­sands of Jews.

The hol­i­day cel­e­brates Roman Shukhevych, com­man­der of the Nachti­gall Bat­tal­ion that car­ried out the mass killings. The city of Lviv is start­ing “Shukhevy­ch­fest” to be held in Lviv on June 30th, com­mem­o­rat­ing the pogrom. Shukhevy­ch’s birth­day. Shukhevych was named a “Hero of the Ukraine” by Vik­tor Yuschenko.

In past posts and pro­grams, we have dis­cussed Volodomir Vya­tro­vich, head of the Orwellian Insti­tute of Nation­al Remem­brance. He defend­ed Shukhevych and the pub­lic dis­play­ing of the sym­bol of the Gali­cian Divi­sion (14th Waf­fen SS Divi­sion.)

Return­ing to Sater col­lab­o­ra­tor Andrii Arte­menko, we note that he is part of push by Pravy Sek­tor and oth­er OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions in Ukraine to oust Poroshenko.

A major, ter­ri­fy­ing part of the pro­gram focus­es on nuclear pow­er plants, the phys­i­cal and/or cyber sab­o­tag­ing of those plants and the pos­si­bil­i­ty that this could lead to a Third World War. Against the back­ground of the drum­beat of anti-Russ­ian pro­pa­gan­da to which we are being sub­ject­ed, the charge that “Russ­ian hack­ers” attempt­ed to gain access to U.S. nuclear pow­er plants using a spearfish­ing attack is to be viewed with alarm.

“. . . . The Wash­ing­ton Post report­ed Sat­ur­day that U.S. gov­ern­ment offi­cials have already pinned the recent nuclear cyber intru­sions on Rus­sia. . . . Ana­lysts remain quick to tamp down asser­tions that Russia’s fin­ger­print on the lat­est attack is a sure thing. . . . Still, it’s a pret­ty alarm­ing sit­u­a­tion regard­less of who was behind it, in part because it’s an exam­ple of how poten­tial­ly vul­ner­a­ble things like nuclear plants are to any hack­er, state-backed or not: . . . . Still, the source said a well-resourced attack­er could try sneak­ing in thumb dri­ves, plant­i­ng an insid­er or even land­ing a drone equipped with wire­less attack tech­nol­o­gy into a nuclear gen­er­a­tion site. Reports indi­cate that the infa­mous Stuxnet worm, which dam­aged Iran­ian nuclear cen­trifuges in the late 2000s, prob­a­bly snuck in on remov­able media. Once inside the “air gapped” tar­get net­work, Stuxnet relied on its own hard-cod­ed instruc­tions, rather than any remote com­mands sent in through the inter­net, to cause cost­ly and sen­si­tive nuclear equip­ment to spin out of con­trol. . . .”

The above-excerpt­ed sto­ry should be viewed against the back­ground of a fright­en­ing devel­op­ment in Flori­da. Devon Arthurs – a neo-Nazi-turned-Muslim–murdered two of his neo-Nazi room­mates back in May. Nation­al Guard sol­dier Bran­don Rus­sell – Arthurs’s sur­viv­ing third room­mate, was found with bomb-mak­ing mate­ri­als, radioac­tive sub­stances and a framed pic­ture of Tim­o­thy McVeigh after police searched their res­i­dence.

Rus­sell:

1.-Planned to sab­o­tage a nuclear pow­er plant. ” . . . . He said Rus­sell stud­ied how to build nuclear weapons in school and is ‘some­body that lit­er­al­ly has knowl­edge of how to build a nuclear bomb.’ . . . He also said they had a plan to fire mor­tars loaded with nuclear mate­r­i­al into the cool­ing units of a nuclear pow­er plant near Mia­mi. He said the dam­age would cause ‘a mas­sive reac­tor fail­ure’ and spread ‘irra­di­at­ed water’ through­out the ocean. . . .”
2.-Belonged to a Nazi group called “Atom­waf­fen.” ” . . . The FBI said Rus­sell “admit­ted to his neo-Nazi beliefs” and said he was a mem­ber of a group called Atom­waf­fen, which is Ger­man for ‘atom­ic weapon.’ . . .”
3.-Was in the Nation­al Guard. Recall that, in the Nazi tract Ser­pen­t’s Walk, the Under­ground Reich gains con­trol of the opin­ion-form­ing media, infil­trates the U.S. mil­i­tary and takes over the coun­try after it is dev­as­tat­ed by a series of ter­ror­ist inci­dents involv­ing Russ­ian WMDs. The stage is set for a Nazi flase flag oper­a­tion that could be blamed on Rus­sia.

Rus­sell, and the rest of Atom­waf­fen, received a wring­ing endorse­ment from bril­liant Nazi hack­er Andrew Aueren­heimer. Auern­heimer is a skilled hack­er who may very well have the abil­i­ty to trig­ger a nuclear melt down some­day. Writ­ing of the mur­der of Rus­sel­l’s room­mates Auern­heimer, the two killed room­mates were “friends of friends” and the “Atom­waf­fen are a bunch of good dudes. They’ve post­ed tons of fliers with absolute­ly killer graph­ics at tons of uni­ver­si­ties over the years. They gen­er­al­ly have a lot of fun and par­ty.”

The point, here, is that Aueren­heimer is part of the Nazi milieu that was look­ing to sab­o­tage a nuclear pow­er plant. With our media hyp­ing “Russ­ian hack­ing,” includ­ing the sup­posed attempt to hack U.S. nuclear pow­er plants, the pro­pa­gan­da stage is set for some­one with Aueren­heimer’s for­mi­da­ble com­put­er skills to sab­o­tage a nuke plant, there­by [very pos­si­bly] start­ing World War III.

This post con­cludes with a detailed arti­cle referred to briefly at the end of the broad­cast. It delves into the tech­ni­cal­ly com­pli­cat­ed dis­cus­sion about the high-pro­file hacks.

Against the back­ground of the reports of Russ­ian hack­ing of U.S. nuclear pow­er plants, the “Atom­waf­fen” link to Ukraine-based Andrew Aueren­heimer, writer Jef­frey Car­r’s reflec­tions are to be weighed very seri­ous­ly:

” . . . . Here’s my night­mare. Every time a claim of attri­bu­tion is made—right or wrong—it becomes part of a per­ma­nent record; an un-ver­i­fi­able prove­nance that is built upon by the next secu­ri­ty researcher or start­up who wants to grab a head­line, and by the one after him, and the one after her. The most sen­sa­tion­al of those claims are almost assured of inter­na­tion­al media atten­tion, and if they align with U.S. pol­i­cy inter­ests, they rapid­ly move from unver­i­fied the­o­ry to fact.

Because each head­line is informed by a report, and because indi­ca­tors of com­pro­mise and oth­er tech­ni­cal details are shared between ven­dors world­wide, any State or non-State actor in the world will soon have the abil­i­ty to imi­tate an APT group with State attri­bu­tion, launch an attack against anoth­er State, and gen­er­ate suf­fi­cient harm­ful effects to trig­ger an inter­na­tion­al inci­dent. All because some com­mer­cial cyber­se­cu­ri­ty com­pa­nies are com­pelled to chase head­lines with sen­sa­tion­al claims of attri­bu­tion that can­not be ver­i­fied. . . .”

FTR #887 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The ongo­ing occu­pa­tion of an Ore­gon wildlife pre­serve in Ore­gon by para­mil­i­tary forces led by Ammon Bundy (son of Cliv­en Bundy) may seem far removed from the gild­ed realms in which the Koch Broth­ers move. They may also appear to be of an entire­ly dif­fer­ent polit­i­cal stripe from the likes of Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange. That is not the case. In fact, the “Bundy­ists” are real­iz­ing the agen­da of the Wise Use move­ment and the Koch broth­ers, both advo­cates of ced­ing con­trol of fed­er­al lands to local con­trol, in order that cor­po­rate inter­ests such as tim­ber, min­ing and cat­tle ranch­ing can use the ter­ri­to­ry for their own use and prof­it. By the same token, the likes of Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange have arro­gat­ed to them­selves the use, con­trol and dis­sem­i­na­tion of sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion that was not theirs to own or dis­trib­ute. David Golum­bia not­ed the atti­tude of “coders” such as Snow­den, Assange and “hack­tivists ” . . . the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it . . . mem­bers of demo­c­ra­tic poli­ties have no choice but to accept them hav­ing that role.” Turn­ing to tur­moil in Europe, the recent assaults on women by Mid­dle East­ern immi­grants in Ger­man, Finnish and oth­er cities on the con­ti­nent have fueled the rise of fas­cist groups, mint­ing valu­able polit­i­cal coinage from the assaults. Some observers com­pared a recent ram­page in Leipzig with the 1938 Kristall­nacht pogrom. The broad­cast con­cludes with an overview of P‑2 Lodge grand­mas­ter Licio Gel­li, the recent­ly deceased fas­cist who pro­found­ly influ­enced events on three con­ti­nents. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Fred C. Koch’s con­struc­tion of an oil refin­ery for Hitler; Ex-CIA offi­cer and author Robert Baer’s belief that Hitler escaped Ger­many at the end of the war; review of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Fox News host Andrew Napoli­tano and Snow­den Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of choice Ron Paul at a lib­er­tar­i­an stu­dents con­fer­ence; review of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Edward Snow­den at that same con­fer­ence; review of Carl Lund­strom’s financ­ing of the anti-immi­grant Swe­den Demo­c­rat fas­cist par­ty and his fund­ing of the Pirate Bay web­site that host­ed Wik­iLeaks.

FTR #775 Ratzinger Leaves the Ship–The Resignation of Pope Benedict XVI

The star­tling res­ig­na­tion of Pope Bene­dict XVI (nee Joseph Ratzinger) brings to mind a num­ber of con­sid­er­a­tions. Ratzinger was some­thing of a care­tak­er, charged with sus­tain­ing the Opus-Dei style reac­tion grip­ping the Vat­i­can and keep­ing the lid on poten­tially dam­ag­ing inquiries.. He took office with the Holy See engulfed in scan­dal and inquiry, includ­ing the bur­geon­ing priest molesta­tion inves­ti­ga­tions, renewed inquiries into mon­ey laun­der­ing by the Vat­i­can Bank and inquiries con­cern­ing the Vatican’s behav­ior dur­ing and after World War II. Might some of those issues over­whelmed his papa­cy, forc­ing the first Papal res­ig­na­tion in his­to­ry?

FTR #761 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 7: Why the NSA Should Be Spying on Germany and Its Chancellor

This pro­gram high­lights German/Underground Reich con­nec­tions to both the 9/11 attacks and the Okla­homa City bomb­ing. Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance is Ernst Uhrlau: chief of Ham­burg police at the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the 9/11 cell under sur­veil­lance, appoint­ed coor­di­na­tor of intel­li­gence for the Ger­man chan­cel­lor in 1998 and head of the BND in 2005. The son of Chan­cel­lor Kohl’s chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing and BND may well have been manip­u­lat­ing Mohamed Atta.

Memo to Merkel: Get a Grip!

It should come as no sur­prise that the NSA would tar­get Ger­many as a “hot spot” for elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance. We call atten­tion to Ernst Uhrlau, chief of police in Ham­burg dur­ing the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, lat­er spe­cial advis­er to Chan­cel­lor Hel­mut Kohl on intel­li­gence mat­ters (the son of whose chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing), and even­tu­al­ly head of the BND! UPDATED ON 10/30/2013.

Roberto Calvi Linked to Pablo Escobar

It is now rel­a­tive­ly well known that the late Pablo Esco­bar and the asso­ci­at­ed Medellin Car­tel were heav­i­ly involved with the Iran-Con­tra cocaine traf­fic of the 1980’s. Press accounts have now sur­faced in Italy and the UK about Esco­bar hav­ing banked some of his pro­ceeds with Rober­to Calvi’s Ban­co Ambrosiano. Found mur­dered in Lon­don in late 1982, Calvi was the advis­er to the IOR, hav­ing suc­ceed­ed the late Michele Sin­dona in that regard. (Like Calvi, Sin­dona was a mem­ber of the Licio Gel­li’s P‑2 Lodge.) Dis­clo­sure of the Calvi/Escobar link sug­gests anoth­er link between the Iran-Con­tra affair and the Stibam arms for drugs ring that heav­i­ly over­lapped the milieu of the P‑2, Vat­i­can Bank and the Ban­co Ambrosiano.
