Weekly Shows, divided into two 30-minute segments, consisting of print excerpts and interviews.
This broadcast illustrates the deep political relationships that evolved from the Third Reich’s formal military occupation of Europe. These relationships are inextricably linked with the remarkable and deadly Bormann capital network that forms the basis of much of Mr. Emory’s analytical paradigm. Taken in concert, they help to illustrate what Mr. Emory means by “Underground Reich.” Angela Merkel’s selection of austerity advocate Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Union Commission will see a long-time German ally and son of a Wehrmacht combatant ascend to the pinnacle of EU governorship. The connections dominating the background and character of the Germanophile Juncker track back to the Nazi occupation of Luxembourg during World War II and cartel connections that facilitated the Third Reich’s amoeba-like absorption of the European economy. During the Nazi occupation, Luxembourg’s economy was folded into “Europa Germanica,” with Gustav Koenigs, Chairman of the Bush-Family linked Hamburg-Amerika Line and Secretary of State of the Third Reich overseeing the steel cartel ARBED and much of Luxembourg’s other business. After the war, Luxembourg continued to be a primary element of the Bormann capital network.
With much of the human race foaming at the mouth over the World Cup competition currently underway in Brazil, we pause to note the profound connections between the world of sport, international fascism and organized crime. After highlighting fascist soccer fans in attendance in Brazil, the program notes the cesspool that is the International Olympic Committee, imprinted with fascist participation by Juan Antonio Samaranch, Francisco Franco’s former Minister of Sport. We highlight the 1972 Olympics massacre in Munich featured possible complicity by elements of the German government and the Underground Reich. The program concludes by looking at American organized crime links to the milieu of the NFL and the probable Mob fixing of Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King’s “Battle of the Sexes.”
Continuing our ongoing coverage of the Ukrainian crisis, the program begins with an examination of the continuity of the OUN/B Third Reich collaborationist milieu through the decades. The “new” President Petro Poroshenko is advised by a team of political vetarns, including Roman Zvarych (“Svarych”), the personal secretary to OUN/B head Jaroslav Stetsko and a right-hand man to his widow and successor Slava Stetsko. Svarych served as Minister of Justice in both Tymnoshenko governments, as well as under Viktor Yuschenko. The Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists, co-founded by Slava Stetsko and Zvarych, has served as a central element in Ukrainian political coalitions, embodying the continuity of the OUN/B throughout the short history of post-Soviet Ukraine. In addition to retaining Swoboda’s Andriy Parubiy as Ukraine’s top defense official, Poroshenko is implementing the EU austerity doctrine, continuing the brutal civil war and opening up Ukraine to German investment. The U.S. and EU are endorsing fracking and fossil fuel production to sabotage the Russian economy and President Putin’s government.
The future of health care in societies subjected to the doctrine of “Austeria” may be seen with the appointment of doctrinaire neo-Nazi Makis “The Hammer” Voridis as Health Minister of Greece. Fascism is surging in a Europe subjected to German-mandated austerity, as evidenced by the recent EU Parliamentary elections. Much of the program highlights fascism marching under the deceptive banner of “freedom” and/or libertarianism. Bitcoin continues its march toward monopoly, with the mysterious Ghash.io controlling 51% of the market. Gun-wielding fascists supportive of “libertarian” (read “white-supremacist”) Ron Paul gunned down police in Las Vegas, while so called “sovereign citizens” shot up police in California. “Cliven Bundists” (supporters of Cliven Bundy) have declared themselves exempt from Bureau of Land Management regulations in Nevada, as the GOP ramps up another government shutdown to foil Obama’s climate change legislation. At the same time, the very high-tech giants that complained so loudly about Obama’s failure to protect individual privacy are surging ahead with programs and technology to obliterate that very consideration.
This program features the work of Eric Johnson, who has written an important, perhaps definitive, piece on the counter-culture fascist propaganda film Thrive. The advance of fascism features a burgeoning array of media and organizational phenomena that direct people of more “progressive”–even “hip” orientation in the direction of bigotry and right-wing totalitarianism. Heavily overlapping the “Truther” milieu, this film features the work of John Birch Society veteran G. Edward Griffin, Nazi apologist Eustance Mullins, as well as the ideology of Austrian School of economics lynchpin Ludwig von Mises. The latter’s philosophy is the foundation of the ideology of the Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks milieu, in addition to pro-slavery advocates such as the League of the South. The film also weaves the “reptillian shape shifter” views of David Icke. All of the ideologies and the viewpoints of some genuine progressives are baked into an overall anti-Semitic confection.
In the long FTR series on L’Affaire Snowden, we noted that all of the players were outright fascists and/or exponents of corporatist economic theory. That includes Pierre Omidyar, Nazi fellow-traveler Glenn Greenwald’s financial angel and backer of First Look media. Touting the laissez-faire economics of the GOP and other corporatist elements around the world, Omidyar has also helped to finance the rise of fascist elements abroad, including assisting in the ascent of the OUN/B successor forces in the Ukraine, as well as Narendra Modi, heir to the RSS Hindu fascists that spawned his BJP. Julian Assange, his political Rand Paul, Rand Paul’s supporter Ralph Nader and Snowden himself all figure strongly into this unsavory political landscape.
Recently, soon-to-be-former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has garnered much media attention for his “off the rails” comments about African-Americans and former NBA great Magic Johnson, in particular. What has NOT garnered much attention at all is his background. An associate of mob straw man Allen Glick and his buddy, the late Al Davis of Oakland Raiders fame, Sterling’s rise in the real estate business suggests that there is more to the story than meets the eye.One of the aspects of Sterling’s career that has received little scrutiny is his curious behavior with regard to a non-existent project for the homeless and the apparently non-existent “assistance” to that project provided by Ramy El-Batrawi. Batrawi was a long-time associate of arms dealer and money-man Adnan Khashoggi, a major player in the shadowy world of intelligence community covert operations, gun-running and dope trafficking.
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.
In addition to detailing the maneuvering surrounding the abundant natural gas reserves in Ukraine, the program highlights efforts by the EU and U.S. fossil fuel interests to manipulate the Ukrainian crisis to their advantage. Accessing excellent work by Robert Parry, the broadcast underscores the Orwellian coverage of the crisis by U.S. and German media. Deliberately avoiding discussion of the Nazi character of the Ukrainian provisional government, Western media have obfuscated the deliberate burning alive of pro-Russian protesters in the Eastern part of the country. Apparently assisted by elements of American and German intelligence, the neo-Nazi OUN/B successors in Ukraine are affiliated with The Order, best known for having murdered radio talk show host Alan Berg.
Updating and introducing a number of stories, this program notes the death of Nazi art dealer Cornelius Gurlitt, highlighted in FTR #791. After detailing the background and political connections of Frazier Glenn Miller, accused of killing three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas, the program highlights the growing control of American media outlets by doctrinaire fascist organizations with a heritage evolving from World War II. In addition to the spectacular growth of publishing giant Bertelsmann, with a Nazi and SS heritage, the broadcast underscores the control of the Al-Jazeera network by the Muslim Brotherhood. The curious advertising behavior of BMW, controlled by the heirs of Joseph Goebbels is set forth, as well.
