ISIS Blowback from Ukraine, Caucasian Covert Ops?

We high­light an arti­cle not­ing the mil­i­tary prowess and sophis­ti­ca­tion of ISIS. Crit­i­cal to this analy­sis is the appar­ent role of the Chechens in the tac­ti­cal devel­op­ment of the group. In the con­text of U.S. and West­ern sup­port for the OUN/B milieu in Ukraine, includ­ing the UNA-UNSO fight­ers who fought with the Chechens and else­where in the Cau­ca­sus, we may well be see­ing “blow­back” from our poli­cies vis a vis Ukraine. The Boston Marathon Bomb­ing also appears to be “Chechen blowback.”

FTR #808 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 3 (“How Many Lies Can You Allow Yourself to Believe Before You Belong to the Lie?”)

Polit­i­cal come­dian Mort Sahl (one of New Orleans DA Jim Garrison’s inves­ti­ga­tors into the JFK assas­si­na­tion) asked in his auto­bi­og­ra­phy “Heart­land”; “How many lies can you allow your­self to believe before you belong to the lie?” In the gath­er­ing storm in Ukraine, decades of insti­tu­tional lying from the Sec­ond World War, through the Cold War and into the present appears to have gained own­er­ship over con­tem­po­rary Amer­ica. Hav­ing taken in the intel­li­gence and polit­i­cal residua of the Third Reich and its Cen­tral and East­ern Euro­pean allies, Amer­ica res­ur­rected and per­pet­u­ated the polit­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal ban­ner of fas­cism. Adher­ing to grossly and delib­er­ately dis­torted intel­li­gence dur­ing the Cold War, the polit­i­cal land­scape evolv­ing from that dis­tor­tion is gov­ern­ing con­tem­po­rary per­cep­tions and actions. This pro­gram updates the actions of the OUN/B heirs in Ukraine and their polit­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal allies else­where in the for­mer War­saw Pact coun­tries. At the core of this analy­sis is the nur­tur­ing of the Hitler-conceived Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations within West­ern intel­li­gence and the GOP, its pro­jec­tion into East­ern Europe and the for­mer U.S.S.R. dur­ing the final stages of the Cold War and and how we are now dom­i­nated by the polit­i­cal Frankenstein’s mon­ster we cre­ated in that part of the world.

FTR #807 Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Updat­ing “L’Affaire Snow­den,” this pro­gram sup­ple­ments infor­ma­tion about the eco­nomic dam­age done to the Amer­i­can IT sec­tor by Snowden’s dis­clo­sures. Snowden’s “op” was, among other things, an act of eco­nomic war­fare against the U.S.–a “psy-op” designed to pro­vide grav­i­tas for a pre-determined Ger­man and Brazil­ian effort to upgrade their own IT sec­tors at the expense of the U.S. Other points of infor­ma­tion include: more doc­u­men­ta­tion of the effort by Face­book and other U.S. tech firms to data mine their cus­tomers to an extra­or­di­nary extent; Glenn Greenwald’s con­tin­ued efforts on behalf of fas­cists of var­i­ous stripes; the extreme sen­si­tiv­ity of doc­u­ments given by Snow­den to indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions not not autho­rized to receive such impor­tant infor­ma­tion; Germany’s “acci­den­tal” spy­ing on John Kerry and Hillary Clin­ton; counter-intelligence spar­ring by the CIA, NSA, GCHQ and BND.

Update on The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Updat­ing our long, detailed dis­cus­sion of The Adven­tures of Eddie the Friendly Spook [Snow­den] aka “The Peach Fuzz Fas­cist”, we note a num­ber of things, includ­ing: more infor­ma­tion that Snowden’s so-called “dis­clo­sures” were actu­ally intended to jus­tify a pre-arranged Ger­man, EU and Brazil­ian IT eco­nomic war­fare offen­sive against the United States; Snowden’s con­sum­mate hypocrisy in dis­clos­ing infor­ma­tion to Nazi fellow-travelers Glenn Green­wald and Julian Assange that nei­ther should pos­sess; Greenwald’s flack­ing for the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; Ger­man pro­tege and Lux­em­bourg EU Com­mis­sioner Viviane Reding’s cham­pi­oning of an EU intel­li­gence agency designed to do exactly what the hyp­o­crit­i­cal EU com­plains about when done by the NSA and GCHQ; the recent (declined) offer of inclu­sion of Ger­many into the Five Eyes Club; Palantir’s role in spy­ing on Face­book users for the military.

The Bowe Bergdahl Controversy

With the Bergdahl “con­tro­versy,” Amer­i­can polit­i­cal cul­ture con­tin­ues to hit new lows, cour­tesy of the terrorist-coddling GOP and their Amen cho­rus in the media. John McCain–himself a for­mer POW–seems intent on lead­ing the GOP’s race to the bot­tom, no mean feat under the cir­cum­stances. Dewey Clar­ridge, him­self a player in the Iran-Contra affair, was the source for much of the “secret intel­li­gence” that has been uti­lized by Fox News, that bea­con of jour­nal­is­tic integrity.

FTR #795 Fascism, Hindu Nationalism and Narendra Modi

Prime Minister-elect Naren­dra Modi, with a polit­i­cal back­ground in a Hindu nation­al­ist party with strong fas­cist roots, is now in charge of the world’s sec­ond largest coun­try and the world’s largest democ­racy. Naren­dra Modi belonged to the RSS, an orga­ni­za­tion with an his­tor­i­cal affin­ity for Nazism and fas­cism. Cap­i­tal­iz­ing on anti-Muslim fer­vor in India, RSS has gen­er­ated much grav­i­tas. Modi has been impli­cated in com­plic­ity in lethal anti-Muslim riot­ing in India. In addi­tion to anti-colonial sen­ti­ment that pit­ted Indian nation­al­ists against the British Raj prior to World War II, Nazism and Hindu phi­los­o­phy also found com­mon ground in ele­ments of “Aryan” mys­ti­cism. Many ele­ments of the Brah­min caste also found affin­ity with the elit­ist and anti-democratic phi­los­o­phy of Mussolini’s fas­cism as well.

Fascist Antecedents of Narendra Modi and His Party

Prime Minister-elect Naren­dra Modi, with a polit­i­cal back­ground in a Hindu nation­al­ist party with strong fas­cist roots, is now in charge of the world’s sec­ond largest coun­try and the world’s largest democ­racy. Naren­dra Modi belonged to the RSS, an orga­ni­za­tion with his­tor­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal affin­ity for Nazism and fas­cism, cap­i­tal­iz­ing on anti-Muslim fer­vor. An asso­ciate of RSS assas­si­nated Mahatma Gandhi.

FTR #787 The Muslim Brotherhood Spring (I Told You So)

We recall the tsunami of praise, Hosan­nas and Hal­lelu­jahs gush­ing forth from the world’s media and polit­i­cal pun­ditry, hail­ing the “Arab Spring” as the dawn­ing of a new enlight­en­ment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–-fundamentally. We, on the other hand, were warn­ing that this phe­nom­e­non was an Under­ground Reich oper­a­tion. Events in Egypt and Turkey have borne out our hypoth­e­sis in grimly con­vinc­ingly fashion.

Knock, Knock. Who’s there? The Clipper Chip and Four Horsemen.

Angela Merkel made an omi­nous announce­ment last week. She wants to move ahead with walling off the EU’s web traf­fic and begin a “mas­sive” counter-espionage cam­paign against the US and its Five Eyes part­ners. Brazil is mov­ing ahead with its plans to remake the inter­net, includ­ing local data stor­age require­ments and state-encrypted web ser­vices sim­i­lar to Germany’s new anti-NSA state-backed email ser­vices. So domes­tic spy­ing could be on the rise, the inter­net itself is at risk, and state-encryption ser­vices are now being offered as an anti-NSA panacea. Main­streamed unbreak­able encryp­tion is also com­ing with­out a debate. An old enemy of pri­vacy, the Clip­per Chip, has returned in a new form. And its own arch-nemeses, the Four Horse­men of the Infopoca­lypse, are back too. And there are no obvi­ous ways to unin­vite these guests with­out a long talk

EU Buys Bees A Breather With Neonicotinoid Ban. Bees’ Goose Still Cookin’

In the quest to pre­vent a col­lapse in the global bee pop­u­la­tion, few approaches look more promis­ing than sim­ply ban­ning the use of neon­i­coti­noids in agri­cul­ture. To the EU’s credit, that’s exactly what was done last May when the EU passed a two-year ban on nicoti­noid usage. For life on earth it was the bee’s knees, although the Life Sci­ences indus­try wasn’t entirely pleased. But the bees aren’t out of the oven yet. For a lot of reasons.
