Weekly Shows, divided into two 30-minute segments, consisting of print excerpts and interviews.
Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk–one of that country’s key political figures–said on German television “We all remember well the Soviet invasion of Ukraine.” This unchallenged statement referred to the Second World War! This fundamental perversion of history is in keeping with the scenario advanced in the Nazi tract “Serpent’s Walk,” in which a Third Reich gone underground takes over the United States and uses its control of the opinion-forming media to portray Hitler and his minions as heroes and their enemies as villains. In Ukraine, we are seeing just that. The current government of Ukraine is an annex of the Third Reich, with the OUN/B heirs in power executing a political agenda dictated by Hitler allies Stephan Bandera and Yaroslav Stetsko. Program highlights include: Russian president Putin’s exclusion from the ceremonies celebrating the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops; the media’s use of relativistic language couching the historical reality of OUN/B’s alliance with Hitler as “Russian” propaganda; FOIA documents verifying OUN’s effective maintenance of a National Socialist government in exile; the probability that Ukraine’s “anti-corruption” bureau will be headed by a foreign national; Ukraine’s denial of entitlements to elderly and disabled residents of Eastern Ukraine–a war crime; NATO’s formation of a media phalanx to counter what they term “Kremlin propaganda” and what is verifiable poltical and historical reality!
The title of the program is a verbatim quote from Edward Snowden–the Peach Fuzz Fascist–in 2009. The GOP-controlled 114th Congress is attempting to implement Snowden’s views. In addition to highlighting Snowden’s ultra-reactionary views about abolishing Social Security and restoring the gold standard, the broadcast sets forth the GOP’s disingenuous statements about the Social Security disability program, exemplified by Rand Paul’s bald-faced lies about the nature of the program. After chronicling the GOP’s 80-year war on Social Security, going back to the early days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s first term, the broadcast reviews the 1934 coup attempt by powerful, fascist industrial and financial interests. Those same plotters supported Mussolini’s “corporate state” and Hitler’s eugenics program, aimed at eliminating “useless bread gobblers.” Like Snowden, the 1934 coup plotters wanted to eliminate Social Security and restore the gold standard.
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.
A controversy ensued when it emerged that House majority whip Steve Scalise had attended a meeting of David Duke’s European-American Unity Organization. The newly-seated GOP-dominated congress which Scalise will help to guide began attacking Social Security on its very first day. Specifically, the GOP began attacking the Social Security disability program. These developments serve as a point of entry into our discussion. Snowden is an advocate of eliminating Social Security and the OUN/B fascists running Ukraine are engaging in a similar program to force those in Eastern Ukraine to stop their attempts at secession. The elements of the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” are networked with Duke, as well. Snowden’s leaking journalist of choice, Nazi fellow-traveler Glenn Greenwald, has been financed by Pierre Omidyar of Ebay, who has also financed the Ukraine coup. The program notes many other elements of confluence between the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” and the Ukrainian coup. The Snowden/WikiLeaks helped to deep-six Obama’s “reboot with Russia” and also alienate many of the young, idealistic voters who had supported him in 2008, thereby helping to elect the 114th Congress.
As the title indicates this program brings up to date a number of stories covered in the past and introduces some new topics of discussion. The topics covered include: JFK’s 1963 attempts at normalizing relations with Cuba; new information casting doubt on the “lone nut” theory of the 2001 anthrax attacks (which fingered Bruce Ivins as a “lone nut” perpetrator); Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s suppression of political dissent, echoing the policies of Francisco Franco; a Catholic mass held to honor the memory of the murderous World War II Ustachi leader Ante Pavelic; the global economic elites’ pursuit of the same economic policies that drove people into the arms of fascism in the 1930’s; Ayn Rand’s role in investigating the 1940’s movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” as possible crypto-Communist propaganda; the GOP’s implementation of fraudulent “dynamic scoring” economic evaluation; theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s warning that the development of Artificial Intelligence could threaten the existence of humanity; Mr. Emory’s 1995 warning that the development of Artificial Intelligence could threaten the existence of humanity.
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.”
In FTR #824, we noted the decisive role played by the Ukrainian diaspora in the events unfolding in Eastern Europe. Petro Poroshenko is implementing a legal gambit to permit foreign nationals to assume cabinet positions in his new government. In particular, Poroshenko expressed the desire to incorporate citizens of the U.S., Georgia and Lithuania in Ukraine’s government. In short order, Ukrainian/American State Department Officer Natalie Jaresko, Lithuanian-born U.S. citizen Airvas Abramovicius and Georgian Aleksandre Kvitashvili assumed the posts of finance minister, economic and development and trade minister and health minister respectively. All three were educated in the United States. Jaresko is a former State Department officer with close links to the US Agency for International Development. The appointments come as Ukraine is close to defaulting on a $17bn IMF loan and members of Ukraine’s fascist volunteer battalions are lobbying Congress for military aid. Poroshenko is also granting citizenship to foreign-born neo-Nazis, as well as instituting an information ministry that critics have compared to The Ministry of Truth from George Orwell’s 1984.
Fascist dictator Francisco Franco passed away decades ago, yet his political legacy lives on. Throughout Spain, memorialization of Franco and his soldiers continues. The perpetuation of that legacy is evident in the political resume of Mariano Rajoy, the son of a Franco judge. Rajoy’s Popular Party is a “kindler, gentler” edition of Franco’s Falange. In addition to jingoistic saber rattling at the British territory of Gibraltar, Rajoy is joining with Argentina to pressure the UK over the Falkalnd Islands. By dancing in tandem with Argentina, Rajoy is embracing the geo-political legacy of Hitler, who selected Spain as his first target for control because of its influence in Latin America–Argentina in particular.
Supplementing previous work about the Ukrainian crisis–one which might spark a nuclear war–we note the decisive role of the OUN/B diaspora in the coalescence of fascism in that troubled nation. The U.S., Canada joined Ukraine as the only nations to vote against a U.N. General Assembly resolution condemning the glorification of Nazi collaborators as “freedom fighters,” probably because of the large OUN/B contingents present in those countries. (Germany and the other EU nations abstained.) Most of the broadcast accesses a very important article by George Eliason detailing the historical background of the Ukrainian diaspora, tracing the roots of Ukrainian, central and Eastern European fascism to the 19th century ultra-nationalist exceptionalism fostered by the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nurtured by the Promethean League between the World Wars, Nazi Germany during the Second World War and the Western democracies during the Cold War, that virulent, bloody ideology triumphed after the breakup of the U.S.S.R. The program concludes by noting that Poroshenko has proposed bringing in importing citizens of the U.S., Lithuania and Georgia to staff the Ukrainian federal police.
Updating FTR #‘s 772 and 792, the broadcast highlights a recent social psychology experiment that indicated a strong inclination toward dishonest, criminal behavior on the part of banking professionals. After noting Deutsche Bank’s precarious position, the program notes two other suspicious deaths. Deutsche Bank’s Calogero Gambino allegedly took his own life, following the alleged suicide of another Deutsche banker–William Broeksmit. Citigroup’s Shawn Miller supposedly slit his own throat, this after placing some 911 calls complaining about being followed. The Senate banking committee recently concluded an investigation of the banking industry’s involvement in the commodities’ markets, something that offers tremendous opportunity for illegal speculation, as well as leaving banks with potentially catastrophic exposure to fluctuation in those markets. In October, a dramatic fluctuation in the market for U.S. Treasury bills has raised ominous questions concerning the stability of this global financial safe haven. The probability of such an event happening was once every 1.6 billion years!
