FTR #850 Update on Fascism in Ukraine

Con­tin­u­ing our analy­sis of the resus­ci­ta­tion of Ukrain­ian fas­cism, we note the ongo­ing role of unabashed, cel­e­bra­tory heirs of the OUN/B in that unfor­tu­nate coun­try. Fol­low­ing an announce­ment by Ukrain­ian inte­rior min­is­ter Arsen Avakov that per­son­nel from the 173rd Air­borne Brigade would begin train­ing of the Nazi Azov Bat­tal­ion on April 20th (Hitler’s Birth­day), the U.S. House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives voted not to arm that unit. They made no objec­tion to the ele­va­tion of Pravy Sek­tor leader Dymtro Yarosh to be an adviser to the head of the Ukrain­ian army. Head of one of the explicit polit­i­cal heirs to the OUN/B in Ukraine, Yarosh led his fol­low­ers in an attack on a gay rights parade in Kiev. Pravy Sek­tor has also func­tioned as an enforcer for Ihor Kolo­moyskyi, one of Ukraine’s most impor­tant oli­garchs. Kolomoyskyi’s pri­mary place of busi­ness is the Ukrain­ian province of Odessa, which will now be gov­erned by Geor­gian expa­tri­ate Mikhail Saakashvili. Unable to return to Geor­gia because of crimes he appar­ently com­mit­ted there, Saakashvili was very “busi­ness friendly” to the Pri­vat com­pa­nies con­trolled by Kolo­moyskyi. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Ukraine’s move to stan­dard­ize its mil­i­tary to NATO require­ments; the re-routing of infor­ma­tion on nuclear weapons from the UK to Ukraine; a threat by Prime Min­is­ter Yat­senyuk to halt Ukraine’s pay­ments to cred­i­tors; charges against Yat­senyuk that he embez­zled up to 325 mil­lion dol­lars; Petro Poroshenko’s threat to invade Crimea; the appar­ent sys­tem­atic assas­si­na­tion of polit­i­cal oppo­nents and crit­ics of the Poroshenko regime.

FTR #841 Interview (#4) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Resum­ing our analy­sis of “The Hitler Legacy,” our next inter­view with Peter Lev­enda con­tin­ues dis­cus­sion of the reha­bil­i­ta­tion of “jihadis as proxy war­riors” by Ger­many in the run-up to, and dur­ing, the Sec­ond World War. Hav­ing assumed the posi­tion of Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini took advan­tage of resent­ment on the Arab street and mobi­lized it against the British and Jews. Begin­ning with pogroms dur­ing the 1920’s and 1930’s, Husseini’s activism blos­somed into full-fledged par­tic­i­pa­tion in Nazi mil­i­tary com­paigns, includ­ing recruit­ing Waf­fen SS units in Mus­lim ter­ri­to­ries. After dis­cussing some sim­i­lar­i­ties between Nazism and global jihadist ide­ol­ogy, Peter high­lights the Grand Mufti’s post war work with the PLO and other Mus­lim polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tions. Join­ing the Grand Mufti were numeer­ous SS men and Nazi tech­ni­cal experts, there to con­tinue their war against the Jews and to fight against Com­mu­nism on behalf of West­ern intel­li­gence agen­cies. In the Mid­dle East, as in other coun­tries where they were recruited as anti-Communist cadre, the Third Reich alumni pur­sued a Nazi agenda, spawn­ing new Nazi polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary for­ma­tions. Peter notes that they are not “neo”-Nazis, at all. West­ern intel­li­gence helped fos­ter post­war SS-assistance orga­ni­za­tions such as Die Spinne and ODESSA, shep­herded to a con­sid­er­able extent by SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny.

FTR #830 Machiavelli 2.0: The Paris Attacks and the Muslim Brotherhood

In the wake of the ter­ror­ist inci­dents in Paris, dis­cus­sion has point­edly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islamic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-communist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Suc­cess­fully scape­goated by Euro­pean fas­cist groups like the National Front, ele­ments of the Broth­er­hood net­work with those same fas­cists, mutu­ally ben­e­fit­ting from cul­tural and polit­i­cal alien­ation gen­er­ated among their respec­tive sup­port­ers. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nomic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­ogy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nomic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tinue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Saudi intel­li­gence in places like the Cau­ca­sus and China’s Xin­jiang Province.

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 #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.
