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.


FTR #806 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Con­tin­u­ing our updates of pre­vi­ous sto­ries and cov­er­age of arti­cles that sur­faced dur­ing the hia­tus in For The Record pro­duc­tion, we present infor­ma­tion that will serve as the foun­da­tion of future–as well as past inquiries. Begin­ning with the Boston Marathon bomb­ing, we note that the Tsar­naev broth­ers appear to have had [as yet unspec­i­fied] help in mak­ing their bombs. In addi­tion, the pro­gram high­lights stun­ning infor­ma­tion bout the 1980 Munich Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing, indi­cat­ing com­plic­ity by Ger­man gov­ern­ment offi­cials in the event, as well as evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries lead­ing in the direc­tion of Klaus Barbie’s Brides­grooms of Death mer­ce­nary group. After high­light­ing attempts by Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon to use Under­ground Reich ele­ments to desta­bi­lize the Ger­man gov­ern­ment of Willy Brandt, the broad­cast sets forth the Euro­pean Space Agency’s employ­ment of Project HAARP devel­oper Bernard “Ben” East­lund to develop tech­nol­ogy osten­si­bly designed to neu­tral­ize tor­na­does. Tor­na­does do not occur in Europe and crit­ics have stated that the tech­nol­ogy might actu­ally make tor­na­does more destructive.


FTR #805 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

As our title indi­cates, this pro­gram brings a num­ber of paths of inquiry up to date, as well as high­light­ing some new points of inter­est. Begin­ning with the onslaught of ISIS–The Islamic State of Syria and Iraq–the broad­cast sets forth infor­ma­tion gen­er­ally ignored in media cov­er­age of the event. Chief of Saudi intel­li­gence Prince Bandar–nicknamed “Ban­dar Bush” for his close rela­tion­ship to the Bush family–may well have been the dri­ving force behind the Iraqi and Syr­ian Sunni jihadists com­pris­ing ISIS. Per­haps that occa­sioned Bandar’s recent replace­ment as head of Saudi intel­li­gence. Much of the pro­gram focuses on the for­ma­tion of lethal right-wing mil­i­tary for­ma­tions in both the United States and Ger­many. The recent stand­off between Cliven Bundy’s para­mil­i­tary sup­port­ers and fed­eral agents por­tends a more expanded and deadly mili­tia and neo-secessionist land­scape. The Bundyites did not oper­ate in a vac­uum, with ide­o­log­i­cal and jour­nal­is­tic sup­port from the GOP and its amen cho­rus in the media. A clan­des­tine army in early 1950’s Ger­many com­posed of Wehrma­cht and Waf­fen SS vet­er­ans enjoyed the sup­port of the Ade­nau­rer gov­ern­ment and the Gehlen-dominated BND. It was net­worked with the SS–still clearly active in the 1950’s.


FTR #804 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 2

Much of what we have learned about the down­ing of Malaysian Air­lines Flight MH 17 (and that isn’t much, sadly) has come through the fil­ter of the OSCE’s Spe­cial Mon­i­tor­ing Mis­sion in Ukraine. That body is headed by Michael Boci­urkiw, one of the first offi­cials on the scene of the crash after the dis­as­ter. A for­mer assis­tant edi­tor of the Ukrain­ian Weekly, Boci­urkiw is con­se­quently enmeshed with the pro-OUN/B heirs dom­i­nat­ing the polit­i­cal and national secu­rity affairs of Ukraine. Boci­urkiw also net­works with a Malaysian Mulim Broth­er­hood milieu that heav­ily over­laps the ele­ments loom­ing large in the dis­ap­pear­ance of Malaysian Air­lines Flight 370. The Malaysian Islamist net­work with which Boci­urkiw has traf­ficked is also linked to the events in, and around, the 9/11 attacks. After exam­ing more evi­dence that Ukraine’s mil­i­tary may have downed MH 17 and high­light­ing some remark­able coin­ci­dences fac­tor­ing in the inves­ti­ga­tion, the pro­gram fur­ther devel­ops infor­ma­tion about the Azov Bat­tal­ion. A fas­cist mil­i­tary for­ma­tion in Ukraine’s “anti-terrorist” cadre, the Azov Bat­tal­ion was formed by Oleg Lyashkov, whose Rad­i­cal Party is the sin­gle most pop­u­lar in Ukraine. For­eign snipers now serv­ing with the unit may well have fired at Ukrain­ian police dur­ing the Euro­Maidan demon­stra­tions, demon­strat­ing what might be termed “a cul­ture of provo­ca­tion” man­i­fested by the OUN/B suc­ces­sor ele­ments in power in Ukraine.


FTR #803 Walkin’ The Snake in Ukraine

The Orwellian nature of jour­nal­is­tic cov­er­age of the Ukraine cri­sis has come to resem­ble Serpent’s Walk, the Nazi tract about an Under­ground Reich takeover of the U.S. The takeover occurs in large mea­sure through Nazi con­trol of the “opin­ion form­ing media.” West­ern media and polit­i­cal voices sys­tem­at­i­cally white­wash the OUN/B ele­ments dom­i­nat­ing the Ukrain­ian national secu­rity estab­lish­ment, and the increas­ingly bloody war crimes they are com­mit­ting in Ukraine. It is against that back­ground that the down­ing of Malaysian Air­lines Flight MH17 occurred. Widely reported to have been com­mit­ted by sep­a­ratist rebels, the shoot­down may have been per­formed by Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary per­son­nel. The “Go-to-Guy” for media and polit­i­cal ana­lysts in con­nec­tion with the MH 17 shoot­down is Michael Bor­ciukiw, an appar­ent pro-OUN/B Ukrain­ian expa­tri­ate from Canada. Bor­ciukiw is net­worked with Malaysian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood fig­ures over­lap­ping both the milieu of the Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002 and the “dis­ap­pear­ance” Malaysian Air­lines Flight 370.


FTR #802 The Luxembourg Connection (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?” Part 2)

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.


FTR #801 The Sportin’ Life

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.”


FTR #800 Meet the New Boss(es), Same as the Old Boss(es): Update on Ukraine

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.


FTR #799 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

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.


FTR #798 Thrive on This! Counter-Culture Fascism in Cinema

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.
