“Austerity” Equals Fascism, Part I: The Republicans are Nazis

[1]

Russ Bel­lan­t’s Book about the GOP and the Nazis

[2]COMMENT: The title of this post may appear extreme to some.  A fol­low-up post will dis­cuss “aus­ter­i­ty” and its effects will be ana­lyzed in some detail and against the back­ground of the Nazi T‑4 pro­gram and the the­o­ret­i­cal prin­ci­ples of Carl von Clause­witz [3].

We could do no bet­ter to begin this long post than to ref­er­ence a char­ac­ter­is­ti­cal­ly inci­sive post [4] by “Pterrafractyl”–who’s work is now fea­tured in its own sec­tion, high­light­ed on the front page of this web­site (“Pter­rafractyl’s Nest”). Users of the web­site are emphat­i­cal­ly encour­aged to digest that post and con­sid­er it in the con­text of this entry. 

In Pter­rafractyl’s detailed arti­cle, we observe the poten­tial res­o­lu­tion of the glob­al eco­nom­ic melt­down threat­ened by the fail­ure of the Euro. That res­o­lu­tion is the kind of sub­ju­ga­tion of Euro­pean nation­al sov­er­eign­ty to Ger­man hege­mo­ny that was envi­sioned by the Third Reich [5] in its plans for post­war vic­to­ry and con­se­quent con­trol.

Fail­ure to res­cue the Euro threat­ens a glob­al eco­nom­ic melt­down. In effect, Ger­many is in the posi­tion of black­mail­ing the U.S., as well as the rest of the world. “As goes Europe, so goes the world.”

The Unit­ed States is, of course, in a Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion year, with 23 Sen­ate seats held by Democ­rats up for grabs, as opposed to 10 seats cur­rent­ly held by Repub­li­cans.

In a fol­low-up post, we’ll look at the pos­si­ble effects of Euro­pean eco­nom­ic tur­moil on the U.S. elec­toral scene, the Pres­i­den­tial con­test in par­tic­u­lar. In that con­text, we will also touch on the pas­sive role of the Fed­er­al Reserve Bank and its chair­man Ben Bernanke in this imbroglio. 

In order to see the cur­rent elec­toral horse race in per­spec­tive, it is impor­tant to review and under­stand the nature of the con­tem­po­rary Repub­li­can Par­ty.

As dis­cussed in FTR #465 [6] (among oth­er pro­grams), a core ele­ment [7] of the post-World War II GOP is a direct off­shoot [8] of the Third Reich and its cen­tral Euro­pean allies.

Fol­low­ing Dewey’s nar­row defeat by Har­ry Tru­man in the 1948 elec­tion (blamed on the “Jew­ish vote”),  Allen Dulles and his pro­tege Richard Nixon set about recruit­ing Axis vet­er­ans, many of them war crim­i­nals, to serve as polit­i­cal mobi­liz­ers in the East­ern Euro­pean eth­nic com­mu­ni­ties in the Unit­ed States. 

This recruit­ment pro­gram [9] was inex­tri­ca­bly linked with an ille­gal domes­tic covert oper­a­tion [10], the Cru­sade for Free­dom. The CFF enlist­ed Roman­ian Iron Guard vet­er­ans, mem­bers of the Hun­gar­i­an Arrow Cross, the Bul­gar­i­an Nation­al Front, the Croa­t­ian Ustachi, the Slo­va­kian Hlin­ka Par­ty, Ukrain­ian fas­cists from the OUN/B of Stephan Ban­dera, Baltic fas­cists from Esto­nia, Latvia and Lithua­nia, Byeloruss­ian Nazis and oth­ers as com­bat­ants against the Sovi­et Bloc and as polit­i­cal cadre in the Unit­ed States.

Sig­nif­i­cant for our pur­pos­es here, it is impor­tant to remem­ber that Ronald Rea­gan was the chief spokesman for the CFF, the covert oper­a­tion cement­ed to the for­ma­tion and oper­a­tion of the GOP “eth­nics.” The State Depart­ment machi­na­tions used to bring the Nazis and fas­cists into the U.S. were over­seen by William Casey, lat­er Nixon’s head of the Secu­ri­ties and Exchange Com­mis­sion and, lat­er, Ronald Rea­gan’s head of the CIA.

Shep­herd­ed by Nixon, this Nazi GOP ele­ment was viewed as being able to deliv­er five key swing states in Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion years. Dur­ing Nixon’s sec­ond term, the GOP “eth­nics” were installed as a per­ma­nent ele­ment of the Repub­li­can Par­ty, when George H.W. Bush was chair­man of the Repub­li­can Nation­al Com­mit­tee.

The 1980 elec­tion marked the tri­umphal ascen­sion of the CFF/Nazi “eth­nics” to the pin­na­cle of Amer­i­can polit­i­cal pow­er. With CFF spokesper­son Rea­gan as Pres­i­dent, George H.W. Bush (who over­saw the instal­la­tion of the Nazis as a per­ma­nent, stand­ing ele­ment of the GOP) as Vice-Pres­i­dent and William Casey (who han­dled the machi­na­tions to import the Nazis under State Depart­ment aus­pices) as CIA direc­tor, the Nazi machin­ery was in con­trol of Amer­i­can polit­i­cal process.

The selec­tion of per­son­nel for the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion is worth not­ing as well. In charge of draw­ing up the list of indi­vid­u­als from which Rea­gan made his appoint­ments was Helene Von Damm, a close associate/protege of Otto von Bolschwing, anoth­er “Dulles Nazi” import­ed into the Unit­ed States. In the Third Reich, Von Bolschwing served as Adolf Eich­man­n’s supe­ri­or in admin­is­ter­ing “Jew­ish mat­ters” for Hitler.

(Yours Tru­ly played a small role in the actu­al break­ing of the Von Bolschwing sto­ry in 1981. Von Damm keeps the last name of her sec­ond hus­band, Chris­t­ian Von Damm, who was man­ag­ing Bank of Amer­i­ca’s branch in La Paz, Bolivia in the ear­ly 1980’s. It would be a rea­son­able sup­po­si­tion that the bank was han­dling a fair amount of cap­i­tal derived from the oper­a­tions of the “Coca Fascisti” who ascend­ed to pow­er in the “Cocaine Coup” of 1980. Lat­er, Von Damm became Rea­gan’s Ambas­sador to Aus­tria. There, she mar­ried a hote­lier named Goertler, who lat­er died of an alleged­ly self-inflict­ed gun shot wound. [11]

Exem­pli­fy­ing the peo­ple tabbed by Van Damm was Yka­te­ri­na Chu­machenko, Deputy Direc­tor for Pub­lic Liai­son for Rea­gan and, at the same time, head of the UCCA, the key front orga­ni­za­tion for the OUN/B! She went on to become first lady of the Ukraine under Vic­tor Yuschenko.

The war crimes com­mit­ted by the OUN/B on behalf of the Third Reich are a sub­ject of con­tem­po­rary polit­i­cal ten­sion [12] between Poland and the Ukraine.

EXCERPT: . . . .On July 20, 1988, George Bush reaf­firmed the ties between the Repub­li­can Par­ty and the ABN by mak­ing a cam­paign stop at Fedorak’s Ukrain­ian Cul­tur­al Cen­ter in War­ren, Michi­gan. Bush deliv­ered a hard-line for­eign pol­i­cy speech to those attend­ing the annu­al Cap­tive Nations ban­quet spon­sored joint­ly by the Cap­tive Nations Com­mit­tee and the ABN. Shar­ing the dais with Fedo­rak and Bush was Kather­ine Chu­machenko, for­mer­ly the direc­tor of the UCCA’s Cap­tive Nations Com­mit­tee and cur­rent­ly the Deputy Direc­tor for Pub­lic Liai­son at the White House. [Empha­sis added.] Ignatius M. Billinsky, Pres­i­dent of UCCA, had already been named Hon­orary Chair of Ukraini­ans for Bush, and Bohdan Fedo­rak named Nation­al vice-chair of Ukraini­ans for Bush. . . .

COMMENT: In assess­ing the Naz­i­fied char­ac­ter of the GOP and the Reagan/Bush I admin­is­tra­tions, one should remem­ber that evi­dence sug­gests the Nazi hier­ar­chy and chain of com­mand remained intact, with the Bor­mann net­work in charge of an NSDAP gone under­ground. 

Fur­ther­more, the Nazi emi­gre milieu is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion. Even as Gehlen was cement­ing his deal with U.S. intel­li­gence, he was clear­ing his activ­i­ties with Admi­ral Karl von Doenitz (Hitler’s des­ig­nat­ed suc­ces­sor) and Gen­er­al Franz Halder.

“The Secret Treaty of Fort Hunt” by Carl Ogles­by; Covert Action Infor­ma­tion Bul­letin #35 (Fall of 1990). [13]

EXCERPT: . . . . As Gehlen was about to leave for the Unit­ed States, he left a mes­sage for Baun with anoth­er of his top aides, Ger­hard Wes­sel: “I am to tell you from Gehlen that he has dis­cussed with [Hitler’s suc­ces­sor Admi­ral Karl] Doenitz and [Gehlen’s supe­rior and chief of staff Gen­eral Franz] Halder the ques­tion of con­tin­u­ing his work with the Amer­i­cans. Both were in agree­ment.” Hohne and Zolling, op. cit., n. 14, p. 61.

COMMENT: Return­ing to the sub­ject of “aus­ter­i­ty” and the elec­tions, it is vital to remem­ber the the Reagan/Bush I Naz­i­fied GOP admin­is­tra­tions cam­paigned against big gov­ern­ment and preached aus­ter­i­ty. At the same time, Reagan/Bush dras­ti­cal­ly increased the mil­i­tary bud­get, increas­ing the nation­al debt three and a half-fold under Rea­gan. By the time Bush I left office, the nation­al debt had increased five-fold!

The Naz­i­fied GOP had cre­at­ed the very sit­u­a­tion which they claimed to be able to solve! (It is worth not­ing that the U.S. had been a net cred­i­tor nation from the end of World War I through the Carter admin­is­tra­tion. By 1983, the U.S. was a net debtor nation. This is relat­ed to, but dis­tinct from, the nation­al debt per se.)

In eight years, Clin­ton, by con­trast, had actu­al­ly had bud­getary sur­plus­es in some years. 

When Bush II took office, he slashed tax­es [14] while wag­ing two wars, dra­mat­i­cal­ly increas­ing the debt [15] once again. 

The actions of five admin­is­tra­tions of Rea­gan and both Bush­es have been utter­ly dis­as­trous for this coun­try’s fis­cal sit­u­a­tion, set­ting the stage for a roll-back of the New Deal under a prospec­tive Rom­ney admin­is­tra­tion (with a GOP-dom­i­nat­ed Con­gress).

In pass­ing, we should remem­ber that the Bush II admin­is­tra­tion heav­i­ly over­lapped a par­al­lel net­work to the Nazi “eth­nics.” Karl Rove–“Bush’s Brain”–and Grover Norquist cre­at­ed the Islam­ic Free Mar­ket Institute to counter the “Jew­ish vote” of the Democ­rats. That milieu, in turn, is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the Nazi-linked Bank Al-Taqwa and the fund­ing appa­ra­tus that helped sup­port Hamas, Al-Qae­da and Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad.

Also in this con­text, remem­ber the the­sis pre­sent­ed over and over on this web­site and in the broadcasts–that the Bush fam­i­ly is the point ele­ment [16] of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal network–what banker famil­iar with its oper­a­tions [17] termed “The great­est con­cen­tra­tion of mon­ey pow­er under a sin­gle con­trol in all of world his­to­ry.” We should also bear in mind the links of the GOP pres­i­dents, Nixon, Ford, Rea­gan and Bush I to the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy.

Also in the con­text of GOP/Nazis, as set forth in FTR #652 [18], Sarah Palin appears to be a cat’s paw for the Alaskan Inde­pen­dence Par­ty, a sedi­tious cor­re­spon­dent par­ty for the Aryan Nations.

Cal­i­for­ni­a’s “Governator”–Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger man­i­fest­ed a Nazi polit­i­cal ances­try [19], Nazi cul­tur­al and behav­ioral affil­i­a­tions [19], Nazi polit­i­cal con­nec­tions [20]and a pos­si­ble Bor­mann net­work finan­cial backer [21].

In the cur­rent cam­paign, Mitt Rom­ney is joined at the hip with “alter­na­tive” can­di­date Ron Paul [22], whose Nazi/fascist links  are a mat­ter of record.

In a fol­low-up post, we will exam­ine the bud­getary and aus­ter­i­ty ques­tion at greater length–both in terms of the pos­si­ble impact of mat­ters Euro­pean on the U.S. elec­tion and on the real nature of “aus­ter­i­ty” itself, from an eco­nom­ic and social stand­point.
