FTR #889 Intercept This! Compendium on Citizen Omidyar

Draw­ing together infor­ma­tion pre­sented in numer­ous broad­casts over the period of sev­eral years, this pro­gram high­lights the endeav­ors of Glenn Greenwald’s journalistic/financial angel Pierre Omid­yar. Guided by the Aus­trian School/free-market, neo-liberal eco­nom­ics of Her­nando De Soto, Omidyar’s “phil­an­thropic” efforts are closely aligned with covert action imple­mented in con­cert with U.S. intel­li­gence cutouts such as U.S. Agency for Inter­na­tional Devel­op­ment, the National Endow­ment for Democ­racy and the Ford Foun­da­tion. Focus­ing on the Omid­yar Network’s SKS orga­ni­za­tion, the dis­cus­sion notes the bru­tal, lethal results of its micro-finance pro­grams in India. Omid­yar Network’s key Indian func­tionary Jayant Sinha, took time off to help direct the elec­tion cam­paign of Naren­dra Modi, whose BJP is a cat’s paw for the RSS, a Hindu nationalist/fascist orga­ni­za­tion inspired by Hitler and Mus­solini. Three quar­ter of Modi’s cab­i­net was selected from the RSS, to which Modi belonged. (Gandhi was assas­si­nated by a mem­ber of RSS.) One of the key vehi­cles for Omid­yar Network’s “phil­an­thropy” in India is the Rural Devel­op­ment Insti­tute (renamed “Lan­desa”), devel­oped by Roy Proster­man. Prosterman’s RDI was a key fea­ture of the Phoenix assas­si­na­tion pro­gram in Viet­nam. Cit­i­zen Omid­yar has also helped to fund the return to power of the OUN/B fas­cists in Ukraine, again part­ner­ing with U.S. intel­li­gence cutouts such as U.S. AID and the National Endow­ment for Democ­racy. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Modi’s pro­jected roll­back of India’s laws against child labor; the sti­fling of free­dom of speech under Modi’s regime; the Modi government’s com­plic­ity in lethal anti-Muslim vig­i­lante actions; the neo-liberal eco­nomic goals of Omid­yar Network’s “land acqui­si­tion” micro-finance projects; Omid­yar pro­tege Oleh Rybachuk’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Yuschenko gov­ern­ment; Rybachuk’s efforts to inte­grate Ukraine into NATO and the EU; Omid­yar pro­tege Svit­lana Zalischuk’s efforts to inte­grate Ukraine into NATO and the EU, men­tored by Rybachuk; Omid­yar pro­tege Zalischuk’s efforts on behalf of the lus­tra­tion laws, seen as the legal foun­da­tion for a broad-based purge; Zalischuk’s efforts pro­mot­ing net­work­ing between Ukrain­ian Nazi par­ties such as Svo­boda and the so-called “mod­er­ate” par­ties; Omidyar’s part­ner­ing with the National Endow­ment for Democ­racy to cre­ate a “fact-funding” ser­vice; review of the devel­op­ment of the NED as a cutout for U.S. intel­li­gence by William Casey and the Rea­gan administration.

FTR #882 The Perfect “Sturm”: Machiavelli 3.0 and the Rise of Global Fascism

When the New York Times takes note of the rise of fas­cism in Amer­ica, you know things are get­ting very bad indeed. On suc­ces­sive days (Fri­day, 12/11 and Sat­ur­day, 12/12 of 2015), the Times fea­tured two op-ed columns in each edi­tion dis­cussing the rise of fas­cism in Europe and the United States. Fur­ther­more, one col­umn noted the fix­a­tion by ISIS, the Hindu nation­al­ist fas­cists in power in India and oth­ers on a myth­i­cal, ide­al­ized past. The broad­cast recaps Peter Levenda’s analy­sis of the role of atavism in fuel­ing fas­cist ide­ol­ogy. Long­ing for a myth­i­cal, ide­al­ized past free of the entan­gle­ments of the present, fas­cists of var­i­ous types scape­goat those whom they view as hav­ing pol­luted soci­ety. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Don­ald Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with Helene Von Damm (pro­tege of Eich­mann supe­rior and CIA offi­cer Otto von Bolschwing); Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with Joseph McCarthy aide Roy Cohn; Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with for­mer Axis spy Nor­man Vin­cent Peale; the assis­tance given Joe McCarthy’s witch hunts by a U.S. intel­li­gence net­work draw­ing on the skills of SS offi­cers and led by Karl Wolff (Hein­rich Himmler’s per­sonal adjutant.)

FTR #880 The ISIS File: The Myth of the Moderates

Con­tin­u­ing our analy­sis of an over­lap­ping series of mas­sive covert oper­a­tions in the Earth Island uti­liz­ing Mus­lim Brotherhood-based Sunni jihadists and inter­sect­ing Pan-Turkist ele­ments, we ana­lyze the gen­e­sis of ISIS. Stem­ming from a covert oper­a­tion in which ele­ments of CIA, Saudi Ara­bia, Turkey and Qatar and the Syr­ian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood are oper­at­ing in South­ern Turkey to enable jihadists in Syria, ISIS appears to be some­thing of a Frankenstein’s mon­ster. Envi­sioned as a Salafist prin­ci­pal­ity in East­ern Syria to desta­bi­lize the Assad regime, the Islamic State used AQI (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) infra­struc­ture to spread into Iraq, threat­en­ing the “gains” of the mis­guided U.S. inva­sion of that coun­try. Now, this Islamist Frankenstein’s mon­ster is attack­ing the West, dri­ving the polit­i­cal spec­trum in Europe and the United States right­ward. That reac­tion, in turn, is fuel­ing Mus­lim alien­ation to the delight and ben­e­fit of ISIS. Pro­gram High­lights Include: ISIS chief Al-Baghradi’s “for­mer” mem­ber­ship in the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; the deci­sive role of Chechen fight­ers in ISIS; the alliance of UNA-UNSA fight­ers (Pravy Sek­tor) in Chech­nya and Geor­gia; ISIS’s use of Bit­coin to stash their finan­cial assets; ISIS’s use of an encrypted Berlin-based mes­sag­ing ser­vice for its com­mu­niques; an oblique endorse­ment of ISIS by the chief of Turk­ish intel­li­gence; review of the re-direction of the anti-Soviet jihadist effort in Afghanistan to anti-Russian com­bat in Chech­nya; review of Zbig­niew Brzezinski’s endorse­ment of using jihadists against Rus­sia in the Cau­ca­sus and China in cen­tral Asia.

FTR #871 Daniel Hopsicker Rides Again!

Hap­pily recov­ered from major heart surgery, heroic inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist Daniel Hop­sicker rejoins our air­waves to recount some of his inves­ti­ga­tions, old and new. We begin with Daniel’s reportage on Jeb Bush’s role in cov­er­ing up the milieu of Huff­man Avi­a­tion and Mohamed Atta’s activ­i­ties in South Florida. Daniel’s inves­ti­ga­tions into intelligence-community-connected drug smug­gling began with his inves­ti­ga­tion into Barry Seal. Seal’s involve­ment with spook activ­i­ties appar­ently began with his mem­ber­ship in a Civil Air Patrol unit com­manded by CIA offi­cer David Fer­rie, a unit that included Lee Har­vey Oswald. Much of the pro­gram was spent high­light­ing some of Daniel’s over­lap­ping sto­ries about the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity and the drug traf­fic. Pro­gram high­lights include: the role of H.L. Hunt’s grand­daugh­ter in the activ­i­ties sur­round­ing what Daniel terms “Cocaine One;” the hero­ism of sev­eral Mex­i­can women who are telling the truth about the involve­ment of the Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment with the car­tels; the bust of a major drug smug­gling flight on prop­erty owned by socialite Paris Hilton; a con­stel­la­tion of appar­ent drug smug­gling activ­i­ties sur­round­ing actor Vince Vaughn’s mother.

FTR #867 Because They Can, Part 3: Fireside Rant about Technocratic Fascism as “Cyber-Crowleyism”

Con­tin­u­ing dis­cus­sion from FTR #866, we develop var­i­ous man­i­fes­ta­tions of lib­er­tar­ian, tech­no­cratic fas­cism. Cel­e­brated by Sil­i­con Val­ley exec­u­tives and ele­vated to power (in part), by EBay chief Pierre Omid­yar, Naren­dra Modi’s Hindu nationalist/fascist gov­ern­ment has been sup­press­ing free speech, laud­ing Mahatma Gandhi’s killer as a patriot, mur­der­ing crit­ics and turn­ing a blind eye to lethal mob vio­lence directed against Mus­lims for allegedly slaugh­ter­ing cows. Cap­i­tal­iz­ing on Snowden’s activ­i­ties, the very finan­cial insti­tu­tions that pre­cip­i­tated the 2008 finan­cial col­lapse are employ­ing a secure, end-to-end encryp­tion mes­sag­ing sys­tem that will enable them to evade reg­u­la­tory scrutiny. The laissez-faire, cor­po­ratist eco­nomic phi­los­o­phy embraced by Modi is at one with the val­ues of Edward Snow­den, Julian Assange, the Tea Party and the GOP as a whole, the advo­cates of Bit­coin, and the pirates of Wall Street. Pro­gram High­lights Include: a com­par­i­son of the social philoso­phies of Assange and Snow­den with those of the SS; review of Modi’s move to under­mine India’s child labor laws; review of the fright­en­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties of “smart con­tracts;” review of Bit­coin as “cyber-offshoring.”

FTR #866 Because They Can, Part 2: More about Technocratic Fascism

Although high-tech can be an enlight­en­ing, enter­tain­ing devel­op­ment offer­ing remark­able pos­si­bil­i­ties for improv­ing human exis­tence, there exists another, sin­is­ter poten­tial. Many big tech firms and coders of var­i­ous types don’t play well with others–they embody another ethic: ” . . . . [they are] telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it. . . .” Poten­tially real­iz­ing the wet dream of pow­er­ful eco­nomic elites, crypto-currencies like Bit­coin are seen as cir­cum­vent­ing the abil­ity of nation states to tax in what might be termed as “cyber-offshoring.” Such a devel­op­ment would spell doom for nation-states. Major finan­cial firms impli­cated in the crash of 2008 have cir­cum­vented reg­u­la­tors with their end-to-end encryp­tion ser­vice called “sym­phony.” Ethereum CEO Gavin Wood enthuses about the pos­si­bil­i­ties of smart-contracts: ” . . . illicit activ­ity enabled by Ethereum could change the world, he says. . . .” Pro­gram High­lights Include: Tar­get stores’ intro­duc­tion of robot work­ers after employ­ees voted to union­ize; Hindu fas­cist Naren­dra Modi’s court­ing of Sil­i­con Val­ley at the same time as he works to under­mine India’s child labor laws; Ethereum’s tech­nol­ogy enabling: the assas­si­na­tion of polit­i­cal lead­ers, the van­dal­iz­ing of web­sites, the sub­ver­sion of any form of state reg­u­la­tion and the tech­no­log­i­cal replace­ment of lawyers and other admin­is­tra­tors. Low-wage work­ers aren’t the only ones fac­ing replace­ment by dig­i­tal technology.

Narendra Modi Directly Manipulated by RSS

In FTR #795, we detailed the his­tor­i­cal evo­lu­tion of the polit­i­cal ascent of Naren­dra Modi, inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the oper­a­tions, devel­op­ment and his­tory of the RSS, polit­i­cal par­ent to his BJP Party. The RSS is a Hindu nation­al­ist and fas­cist party, one of whose alumni assas­si­nated Mahatma Gandhi. Recent devel­op­ments have clar­i­fied the degree of con­trol and influ­ence that the RSS exerts on Modi. That con­trol is pro­found and direct. Most alarm­ingly, the RSS wants to see India and Pak­istan “reunited!” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash drive. Dave offers his pro­grams and arti­cles for free–your sup­port is very much appre­ci­ated.

FTR #863 9/11, The Muslim Brotherhood and the Earth Island Boogie, Part 2

Stretch­ing from the Straits of Gibral­tar, all across Europe, most of the Mid­dle East, Eura­sia, Rus­sia, China and India, that stretch of land known as the “Earth Island”: com­prises most of the world’s land mass; con­tains most of the world’s pop­u­la­tion and most of the world’s nat­ural resources (includ­ing oil and nat­ural gas.) Geopoliti­cians have long seen con­trol­ling that land mass as the key to world dom­i­na­tion. In this broad­cast, we exam­ine what might be termed polit­i­cal strange bed­fel­lows grouped together against Rus­sia and China and advanc­ing an appar­ent Under­ground Reich and cor­po­ratist agenda in parts of Rus­sia and China. In addi­tion to the Tibetan Bud­dhist milieu of the Dalai Lama, Uighur Mus­lims asso­ci­ated with Al Qaeda and the Pan-Turkist move­ment are ranked together under the ban­ner of the UNPO and the House of Hab­s­burg. Active in Ukraine, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for cen­turies, the Hab­s­burgs appear to be a coor­di­nat­ing exec­u­tive ele­ment mobi­liz­ing the diverse eth­nic groups work­ing against Rus­sia and China. Pro­gram High­lights Include: OUN/B oper­a­tive Paula Dobriansky’s con­trol of the Tibet Desk at the State Depart­ment; Uighur links to Al Qaeda and other Mus­lim Broth­er­hood off­shoots; review of the Dalai Lama’s his­tor­i­cal rela­tion­ships with the SS and the CIA; review of Peter Levenda’s con­cept of “weaponized reli­gion;” sup­port for the Uighurs by the Pan-Turkist and fas­cist National Action Party; Erkin Altepkin’s alliances with the Hab­s­burg milieu, the Dalai Lama and ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence; the grow­ing pres­ence of ISIS-affiliated fight­ers from Chech­nya in the Ukrain­ian conflict.

FTR #862 9/11, The Muslim Brotherhood and the Earth Island Boogie, Part 1

Dis­cus­sion of Islamist ter­ror­ists 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. 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. Among the events that has been obscured by the pas­sage of time is the open oppo­si­tion to the Trea­sury Department’s attempts at inter­dict­ing ter­ror­ist financ­ing money, on the grounds that it would “restrict” the free-flow of inter­na­tional cap­i­tal. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tinue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Saudi intel­li­gence in places like Syria, the Cau­ca­sus and China’s Xin­jiang Province. Pro­gram High­lights Include: The use of ISIS-linked Chechen fight­ers in Ukraine; Saudi Bin Laden Group’s use of Sul­li­van and Cromwell as its gen­eral coun­sel; Sul­li­van & Cromwell’s work on behalf of the finan­cial insti­tu­tions that were (suc­cess­fully) resist­ing the Trea­sury Department’s attempts at inter­dict­ing ter­ror­ist financ­ing; review of the forced res­ig­na­tion of Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Paul O’Neill fol­low­ing the 3/20/2002 Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids.

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.
