FTR #813 Return of the Rising Sun, Part 3

Grand­son of the Japan­ese war crim­i­nal who signed that country’s dec­la­ra­tion of war against the U.S., Shinzo Abe is fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of Nobo­suke Kishi (his grand­fa­ther), as well as those of Kishi’s asso­ciates in Japan’s expan­sion­ist empire. Revis­ing school text­books about World War II, pass­ing a new secrecy law, insti­tut­ing greater state con­trol of news media, dra­mat­i­cally increas­ing defense spend­ing while mov­ing to alter the con­sti­tu­tion to per­mit a more mil­i­taris­tic agenda, Abe is turn­ing back the Japan­ese his­tor­i­cal and polit­i­cal clock. Japan­ese gov­ern­ment offi­cials are openly sanc­tion­ing anti-Korean racism and net­work­ing with orga­ni­za­tions that pro­mote that doc­trine. Sev­eral mem­bers of Abe’s gov­ern­ment net­work with Japan­ese neo-Nazis. Vice-Prime Min­is­ter Taro Aso is a long­time admirer of Nazi polit­i­cal strat­egy and advo­cates using the Nazi method for seiz­ing power to sneak con­sti­tu­tional change past the Japan­ese public.

FTR #811 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 4

With another anniver­sary of the 9/11 attacks hav­ing passed, it is inter­est­ing to con­tem­plate the ongo­ing dam­age from the unlearned lessons con­cern­ing those attacks. Before dis­cussing ongo­ing sup­port for Cau­casian and Chechen jihadist ele­ments by ele­ments of U.S., West­ern and Saudi intel­li­gence, the pro­gram high­lights the bogus intel­li­gence about a sup­posed “Russ­ian inva­sion” of Ukraine that does not appear to have occurred at all. Much of the sup­posed intel­li­gence on this “inva­sion” comes from satel­lite pho­tos, show­ing what are sup­posed to be Russ­ian armored and artillery ele­ments in Ukraine. These pho­tos are NOT from U.S. recon­nais­sance satel­lites, but come from a pri­vate company–DigitalGlobe. Founded by vet­er­ans of Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” pro­gram (The Strate­gic Defense Ini­tia­tive), the company’s exec­u­tives have CV’s involv­ing work for Bain (Mitt Romney’s firm) and IHS, the Thyssen/Bornemisza group firm that is the epi­cen­ter of the Peak Oil doc­trine. Access­ing archival infor­ma­tion about sup­port for Chechen Islamists by ele­ments of U.S., West­ern and Saudi intel­li­gence, the pro­gram notes the involve­ment of Ukrain­ian fas­cists from the UNA/UNSO orga­ni­za­tion in Chech­nya and the Cau­ca­sus. The reported com­bat exper­tise of ISIS is said by some ana­lysts to have evolved from the par­tic­i­pa­tion in that group of Chechen vet­er­ans, mak­ing our slip­pery slope involve­ment against the group blowback–to an extent–from the West’s proxy war­riors in the Cau­ca­sus. As was the case in Afghanistan–where the U.S. fought a bloody, inde­ci­sive war against jihadists crafted to fight against the U.S.S.R. and sub­se­quently Russia–we once again find Amer­i­can mil­i­tary forces engaged against jihadists being used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of the transna­tional cor­po­rate elite and allied national secu­rity ele­ments. The pro­gram con­cludes with a closer look at the his­tor­i­cal back­ground to some recent pro­pa­ganda in the New York Times’ op-ed page, ascrib­ing Russ­ian respon­si­bil­ity to the 1999 assas­si­na­tions of Armen­ian polit­i­cal lead­ers by the Dash­nags, an Armen­ian nation­al­ist group with long­stand­ing his­tor­i­cal links to Ukrain­ian fas­cists and other ele­ments of inter­na­tional fas­cism and the Under­ground Reich.

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.
