FTR #394 The Battle of Menwith Hill: Signals Intelligence & the 9/11 Attacks

The Ger­man and Euro­pean Union’s attack on Men­with Hill and ECHELON.

FTR #890 Tracking from the Far Right: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

QUICK: Who said this?: “ ‘It seems like the [Unit­ed States Dol­lar] and [Great Britain’s Pound] are both like­ly to go the way of the zim­babwe dol­lar,’ he sug­gested in March 2009. ‘Espe­cially with that cock­bag Bernanke decid­ing to mag­i­cally print 1.2T more dol­lars.’ . . . Oba­ma was ‘plan­ning to deval­ue the cur­rency absolute­ly as fast as the­o­ret­i­cally pos­si­ble,’ he wrote. . . .” Ted Cruz? Don­ald Trump? Mar­co Rubio? Paul Ryan? Rand Paul? No, it is Edward Snow­den. Note how this jibes with Paul Krug­man’s descrip­tion of the GOP pri­ma­ry field: ” . . . . After all, Paul Ryan, the speak­er of the House, not only berat­ed Ben Bernanke, Ms. Yellen’s pre­de­ces­sor, for poli­cies that alleged­ly risked infla­tion (which nev­er mate­ri­al­ized), but he also dab­bled in con­spir­a­cy the­o­riz­ing, accus­ing Mr. Bernanke of act­ing to “bail out fis­cal pol­i­cy.” . . . But Wall Street isn’t the only source of malign pres­sure on the Fed, and in the actu­al­ly exist­ing U.S. polit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion, such a bill would essen­tial­ly empow­er the cranks — the gold-stan­dard-lov­ing, hyper­in­fla­tion-is-com­ing types who dom­i­nate the mod­ern G.O.P., and have spent the past five or six years try­ing to bul­ly mon­e­tary pol­i­cy mak­ers into ceas­ing and desist­ing from their efforts to pre­vent eco­nom­ic dis­as­ter.” This pro­gram high­lights the far-right, fascis­tic forces under­ly­ing Eddie the Friend­ly Spook. Much of the pro­gram con­sists of excerpts of past pro­grams, stretch­ing back to the late 1990’s. The elec­tron­ic “vac­u­um clean­er” approach of NSA and GCHQ has been on the pub­lic record for years. In the 1990’s NSA, GCHQ and the ECHELON/Five Eyes net­work came under joint assault by Ger­many and the Free Con­gress Foun­da­tion. The lat­ter is very close to Nazi alum­ni of the Third Reich, the OUN/B in par­tic­u­lar, and is an ele­ment deeply involved in pro­ject­ing the Anti-Bol­she­vik Bloc of Nations back into the for­mer U.S.S.R. and East­ern Europe. GOP big­wig Grover Norquist has been a vocif­er­ous oppo­nent of NSA spy­ing, as well as shep­herd­ing Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-linked ele­ments in the Unit­ed States. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Mr. Emory’s first post on “L’Af­faire Snow­den,” in which he won­dered aloud what all the fuss was about, since this has been on the pub­lic record for years; review of the fact that oth­er Euro­pean coun­tries do the same thing as NSA/GCHQ; Review of Snow­den’s views on Social Secu­ri­ty: ” . . . Snow­den wrote that the elder­ly ‘wouldn’t be fuck­ing help­less if you weren’t send­ing them fuck­ing checks to sit on their ass and lay in hos­pi­tals all day.’ ”

FTR #827 Brave New World: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Bring­ing up to date our ongo­ing inquiry into “L’Af­faire Snow­den,” we note a num­ber of impor­tant devel­op­ments, par­tic­u­lar­ly with regard to Ger­many. After the inter­na­tion­al hue-and-cry about NSA mon­i­tor­ing Angela Merkel’s mobile phone, the Ger­man probe into the alleged event has been dropped for lack of evi­dence! After review­ing the BND’s mon­i­tor­ing of mobile phone calls by U.S. Sec­re­taries of State Hillary Clin­ton and John Ker­ry, the pro­gram notes the rhetor­i­cal and legal strat­a­gems used by Ger­man intel­li­gence to con­duct pre­cise­ly the same type of elec­tron­ic espi­onage that NSA per­forms. In addi­tion to its [appar­ent­ly failed] attempt to gain entrance to the “Five Eyes” spy­ing con­sor­tium, Ger­many has acquired Black­Ber­ry’s source code, this in exchange for allow­ing the Cana­di­an firm to acquire a Dus­sel­dorf-based com­pa­ny that han­dles secu­ri­ty for mobile phones. Ger­many also seeks access to Google’s search engine algo­rithm. Both the Google algo­rithm and the Black­Ber­ry source code will give Ger­man intel­li­gence impor­tant tools to con­duct pre­cise­ly the type of snoop­ing con­demned by Merkel et al. Much of the lat­ter part of the pro­gram high­lights tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments that are herald­ing a new phase of civ­i­liza­tion. With poten­tial­ly dev­as­tat­ing cyber-ter­ror­ism a present real­i­ty, the devel­op­ment of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence and small, inex­pen­sive, pri­vate­ly-owned drones that can mim­ic cell phone tow­ers are indica­tive of the “Brave New World” we have cre­at­ed. Much of the uproar over Snow­den’s dis­clo­sures stems from future shock–the pub­lic has not adjust­ed to an entire­ly dif­fer­ent tech­no­log­i­cal land­scape, in which (as Albert Ein­stein said with regard to the devel­op­ment of the atom­ic bomb) “Every­thing has changed but our way of think­ing.”

FTR #776 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 15: Updates and Further Analysis

This broad­cast con­tin­ues and updates analy­sis of “L’Af­faire Snowden”–a “psy-op” assem­bled for pro­pa­gan­da pur­pos­es and resul­tant polit­i­cal effect. The “op” is intend­ed to: desta­bi­lize the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and U.S. diplo­ma­cy and for­eign pol­i­cy; degrade U.S. high-tech and inter­net busi­ness and (con­se­quent­ly) the U.S. econ­o­my; jus­ti­fy Ger­many’s inclu­sion in the “Five Eyes” agree­ment and jus­ti­fy expan­sion of Ger­man elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance; desta­bi­lize and weak­en the Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Agency and the GCHQ; eclipse Ger­man eco­nom­ic war­fare against oth­er Euro­pean coun­tries and high­light the Unit­ed States as the “Inter­na­tion­al Pub­lic Ene­my #1.”

FTR #762 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 8: U‑2 Brut? (The Destabilization of the Obama Administration)

Among the evi­dent pri­ma­ry goals of the intel­li­gence oper­a­tion under­tak­en by Edward Snow­den is the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion. Inten­tion­al­ly dam­ag­ing Oba­ma’s attempts at improv­ing rela­tions with Rus­sia, Chi­na and Germany/EU, the “op” bears strong sim­i­lar­i­ty to the U‑2 inci­dent in May of 1960. That oper­a­tion appears to have been orches­trat­ed by domes­tic intel­li­gence ele­ments, where­as this appears to have been a for­eign “op,” prob­a­bly BND/Underground Reich.

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.

Snowden’s Ride, Part 10: The Beginning of World War III?

The lat­est devel­op­ments in L’Af­faire Snow­den are alarm­ing, and pre­dictable. We spec­u­lat­ed that BND would decou­ple from NSA’s spy­ing pro­gram. That has now hap­pened. We pre­dict­ed that Eddie the Friend­ly Spook’s psy-op would lead to pro­found dam­age to U.S. inter­net busi­ness and the econ­o­my. That appears to be devel­op­ing. The reg­u­la­tion of the Inter­net may be going in the direc­tion that Rus­sia and Chi­na have endorsed, lend­ing depth to our under­stand­ing of Snow­den’s trav­el to both countries–nations that are less than con­ducive to inter­net free­dom. IMPORTANT UPDATES ON 8/3/2013, 8/14/2013..

Snowden’s Ride, Part 2: Geo-Politics, the Earth Island and the Underground Reich

We con­tin­ue to cov­er the obvi­ous intel­li­gence oper­a­tion being con­duct­ed by Eddie “the Friend­ly Spook” Snow­den (pic­tured in his youth at right.) His “op” has alien­at­ed the EU. It has also pro­vid­ed fod­der for Ger­man pro­pa­gan­da against the U.S. and U.K. Ger­many may grant him asy­lum. Ger­many is said to be prepar­ing crim­i­nal charges against Amer­i­can and British offi­cials.

“U‑2, Brut?”: Baby Face Snowden and the Destabilization of Obama

Pre­vi­ous­ly, we not­ed that Ron Paul backer Snow­den decamped to Hong Kong and leaked infor­ma­tion about U.S. hack­ing of Chi­nese com­put­ers just as Pres­i­dent Oba­ma was meet­ing with the Chi­nese prime min­is­ter Xi. Now, infor­ma­tion about NSA spy­ing on Ger­many hits the papers, just as Oba­ma is prepar­ing to meet with Ger­man Chan­cel­lor Angela Merkel, caus­ing fur­ther embar­rass­ment. This has all the ear­marks of a U‑2 style intel­li­gence desta­bi­liza­tion oper­a­tion. UPDATED ON 8/30/2013.
