Supplementing the discussion and analysis from earlier programs on the subject of the terrorist blitzkrieg of 9/11, this program derives its title from the Nazi tract Serpent’s Walk [4].

1. It is conjectured credibly that, like The Turner Diaries (also published by National Vanguard Books), the book is actually a blueprint for what is going to take place. It is a novel about a Nazi takeover of the United States in the middle of the 21st century. The book describes the Third Reich going underground, buying into the American media, and taking over the country. “It assumes that Hitler’s warrior elite – the SS – didn’t give up their struggle for a White world when they lost the Second World War. Instead their survivors went underground and adopted some of their tactics of their enemies: they began building their economic muscle and buying into the opinion-forming media. A century after the war they are ready to challenge the democrats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Americans, who have begun to have their fill of government-enforced multi-culturalism and ‘equality.'” (From the back cover of Serpent’s Walk by “Randolph D. Calverhall;” Copyright 1991 [SC]; National Vanguard Books; 0-937944-05-X.)

2. The program begins with discussion of the Saudi role in the events of 9/11. Ten days before the attacks, the Saudis warned George W. Bush that his policy on the Israeli-Palestinian question was “unacceptable.” (“Saudis Warned Bush Over Policy on Israel” by Roula Khalaf; Financial Times; 10/10/2001; p. 1.)

3. A Saudi-based charity that has been alleged by the U.S. to be a support organization for the Bin Laden organization (the Muwafaq Foundation) is run by, among others, two members of the Bin Mahfouz family. (“Philanthropist, or Fount of Funds for Terrorists?”; by Jeff Gerth and Judith Miller; New York Times; 10/13/2001; p. B3.)

4. The Bin Mahfouz family were deeply involved with the BCCI, and were represented in the U.S. by James R. Bath. Bath helped capitalize Dubya’s first oil company and was the North American business representative for the Bin Laden family.

5. Significantly, the Saudi government has not frozen funds connected to the financing of the Bin Laden organization and has been less than vigorous in providing background information on the Saudi nationals involved in the attacks. (“Saudi Cooperation on Bin Laden Lags, U.S. Aides Say” by Jane Perlez; New York Times; 10/11/2001; p. B5.)

6. Next, the program takes up the subject of an allegation by German intelligence that the Echelon system provided the U.S. and the United Kingdom with advanced warning of the 9/11 attacks. (“Newspaper: Echelon Gave Authorities Warning of Attacks” by Ned Stafford [Newsbytes]; 9/13/2001; accessed at www.infowar.com.) With the epicenter of the conspiracy having taken place in Germany, this allegation by the Germans would appear to be an attempt at deflecting partial responsibility for the attack away from themselves. As noted in past programs, Germany has been attacking the Echelon network and the related Menwith Hill listening station for years. In the past, Mr. Emory has voiced the opinion that ECHELON and Menwith Hill are essential to both U.S. and British national security and has analyzed the EU/German pressure to curtail these operations against the background of escalating intelligence friction between the U.S. and Germany.

7. Significantly, a long-awaited European Parliament report on Echelon concluded that “many European countries had similar abilities”—that would undoubtedly include Germany. (“Report on U.S. Spy System” by Suzanne Daley; New York Times; 9/6/2001; p. A6.)

8. In light of that fact, why didn’t German intelligence know about the attacks? A Libyan arrested in Munich in connection with the attacks had been under investigation since April. (“Egyptian Terror Cell ‘Linked to Bin Laden'” by Heba Saleh; Financial Times; 10/12/2001; p. 5.)

9. The German prosecutor in charge of the investigation has been charged with ignoring evidence that might have led to the interdiction of the attacks. (“Berlin Demands Boost in Terror Probe” by Hugh Williamson; Financial Times; 10/9/2001; p. 2.)

10. Examining the geopolitical benefits that have accrued to Germany from the 9/11 attacks, the broadcast notes that German chancellor Gerhard Schroder stated that Germany will no longer play ‘a secondary role’ in international affairs. (“Germany Ready for More Senior Role in World Affairs” by Haig Simonian; Financial Times; 10/12/2001; p. 7.)

11. Alarmingly, German Luftwaffe pilots are now manning AWACS aircraft that are patrolling American airspace. (“Berlin Flexes its Muscles” by Haig Simonian; Financial Times; 10/13-14/2001; p. 9.)

12. Much of the rest of the broadcast examines information supplementing the long-running discussion of German control over the American media. In Serpent’s Walk, the descendants of the SS go underground after the Second World War, put together an enormous economic organization, gain control over the American media, infiltrate the U.S. military and, after a biological warfare attack that destroys much of the U.S. and martial law is declared, this “underground Reich” takes over the United States. It is certainly credible that the book is, in fact, a blueprint for what the Bormann organization [5] and its associates are planning to do.

The program then highlights U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick’s use of the 9/11 attacks to promote “fast track” trade legislation that would permit George Bush to bypass Congress. (“Boost for Bush on ‘Fast Track’ Trade Deal” by Edward Alden; Financial Times; 9/27/2001; p. 1.) Zoellick [6]‘s background strongly suggests involvement with the Bormann organization. The fast track legislation being pursued by Zoellick would further facilitate takeovers of American media outlets by German corporations.

13. In addition, the non-stop coverage of the 9/11 attacks has badly depressed American media stocks, due to the loss of advertising revenues. (“Media Feeling the Pain” by Mark Schwanhausser; San Jose Mercury News; 9/23/2001; p. 1F.)

14. This will, of course, make easier a potential takeover of one of the suffering companies. Stocks of other companies, including the British Pearson firm, have also declined as a result of the attacks. (“Global Media Troubles Deepen” by Christopher Grimes and Patrick Jenkins; Financial Times; 10/3/2001; p. 17.)

15. The Bertelsmann firm, on the other hand, is in excellent financial shape for prospective takeovers, and is planning such transactions. (“Bertelsmann Looking Around for Acquisitions” by Jeff Leeds; Los Angeles Times; 9/28/2001; p. C5.)

16. (Bertelsmann is a central focus of the series on German corporate control over the American media and appears to be a Bormann firm.) One of the transactions that placed Bertelsmann in a capital-rich position was its sale of AOL Europe, which may give the firm 6.75 billion dollars (including 2.5 billion in cash.) (“It Looks Like Bertelsmann Outfoxed AOL in Europe” by Scott Herhold; San Jose Mercury News; 10/11/2001; p. 1F.)

17. Next, the program highlights the “hypothetical” biological warfare attack that paves the way for the SS takeover of the United States. (Serpent’s Walk; p. 139.) The broadcast underscores the fact that American media outlets were among the first targets of the Anthrax bioterror that followed the 9/11 attacks. (“Mail Room Anxiety—Delivery Curbed” by Bill Wallace, Robert Salladay and Henry K. Lee; San Francisco Chronicle; 10/13/2001; p. 1.)

18. The broadcast concludes with discussion of unusual stock market activity in the weeks preceding 9/11. The activity in S&P 500 index options was very unusual in connection with the 9/11 attacks, potentially yielding extraordinary capital to whoever appears to have engineered the manipulation. (“Follow the Money” by Erin E. Arvedlund; Barron’s; 10/8/2001; p. 22.)

19. Correction: $120,000 is the sum needed to yield a net of $780,000, not $1,200, as was incorrectly noted in the broadcast.
