“Danger, Will Robinson!”–Peter Thiel, Robots and the Underground Reich (Be Afraid, Be VERY Afraid!)

[1]

They'll be back!

Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash drive that can be obtained here. [2] (The flash drive includes the anti-fascist books avail­able on this site.)

COMMENT: In our last post [3], we noted that, in addition to Peter Thiel [4], the CEO of Palantir [5] (Thiel associate Alex Karp) had German roots. The available evidence suggests that they are Underground Reich. 

(For newer users of this website, we note that it is impossible to briefly explain the concept of The Underground Reich. The very mention of such a term will seem like madness to the unititiated. We recommend that people read The Nazis Go Underground [6], Martin Bormann: Nazi in Exile [7], The New Germany and the Old Nazis [8], and “The Secret Treaty of Fort Hunt.” [9])

(For the benefit of younger and/or users of this website from foreign countries, the “Danger Will Robinson” countries, the reference to “Danger, Will Robinson” is from an unimaginably cheesy science fiction series from late 1950’s-early 1960’s America television called “Lost in Space.” The young Will Robinson had Robby the Robot as a companion, who alerted the youngster when threats were at hand. The same Hollywood robot had been featured in the movie “Forbidden Planet.” Two still scenes from the film are featured in the pictures at right.)

A frightening development concerns the development of security robots by a company capitalized by Peter Thiel and headed by Alex Karp!

[10]In addition to the Thiel/Karp RoboteX [11] venture, we note that the Festo Corporation [12] is deeply involved in the development of robots.

We note that the development of robotic animals–such as the robot dragonfly pefected by Festo–are seen as the next stage of drone/surveillance/attack technology.

Festo, in turn, overlaps the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft [13], the vehicle through which 9/11 hijacker Mohamed Atta moved to Germany and then to the United States.

[14]Examine the brief history [15] of that organization, set forth below. It is impossible for a knowledgeable reader not to conclude that the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft is inextricably linked with the Bormann capital network [7].

We also recapitulate an item from FTR #484 [16]. Heroic journalist Daniel Hopsicker was told by agents of the German BKA (the equivalent of their FBI) that the Germans with whom Atta was associating were the sons and daughters of German industrialists.

In our many visits with Daniel Hopsicker, we have examined the many Germans who worked with Mohamed Atta and Rudi Deckers in the Huffman Aviation milieu in Venice Florida.

On the last page of Paul Manning’s text [17], he cites an unnamed CIA pilot who “made the run to the Bormann ranch in Latin America.” Might that “run” have gone through Venice Florida, a hub of covert operations for decades? Might Mohamed Atta, Wolfgang Bohringer and associates have been what comes up from the other end of that run?

We also note that, official disclaimers to the contrary notwithstanding, Bormann’s survival and postwar career are not in doubt, as evidenced by the FBI’s file on Bormann, exerpted by Paul Manning.

“RoboteX Private Security Robots Gets $2.06M Backed by Peter Thiel” by Meghan Kelly; venturebeat.com; 3/22/2013. [11]

RoboteX, a California company building robots for “first responders,” has filled $2.06 million of a desired $5 million round of funding, according to a filing with the SEC.

Peter Thiel, along with RoboteX founder Nathan Gettings and chief executive Alexander Karp were listed in the filing. Though these three are named, the filing cites four investor who are unidentified.

RoboteX was founded in 2007 and creates robots without the use of government funding. Its line of “Avatar” robots are meant to help with security, sometimes in situations that could be dangerous for humans. The website lists examples such as serving papers to a dangerous individual, entering hostage situation, patrolling, investigating suspicious packages, and more.

The company also has a line of robots for the home and office that offer its own form of roving security system. You attach an iOS device to the robot, which you can then remotely control to survey the house on your behalf. . . .

“FESTO’S ROBOT DRAGONFLY AN AWESOME MIX OF PREHISTORIC AND FUTURISTIC” by Jason Dorrier; Singularity Hub; 4/17/2013. [12]

EXCERPT: German manufacturing firm Festo recently resurrected a Paleozoic dragonfly. No, we’re not talking de-extinction or synthetic biology—this baby’s robotic. But at 70 cm (27 in) by 48 cm (19 in), Festo’s BionicOpter robot dragonfly is a futuristic flying machine with more than a touch of the prehistoric in it.

Dragonflies are clever fliers—they can hover, accelerate quickly, stop on a dime, glide, and even fly backwards. As Festo notes, “For the first time, there is a model that can master more flight conditions than a helicopter, plane and glider combined.”

Festo’s dragonfly is a marvel to watch move.

The robot is driven by nine servos, a battery, and an ARM microcontroller stowed in a flexible polyamide and terpolymer structure. The head and tail are moved by passing an electrical current through nitinol muscles. The computer controls the frequency (15–20 Hz), twisting (90 deg), and amplitude (50 deg) of its four carbon fiber and foil wings and, by taking in a constant stream of wing data and body position, corrects for vibration for stable flight indoors or out. . . .

“History of the Carl Duisberg Society” [18]

EXCERPT: In the 1920’s, Carl Duisberg, General Director of Bayer AG in Germany, envisioned sending German students to the United States on work-study programs. Duisberg was convinced that international practical training was critical to the growth of German industry. Many of the returning trainees later rose to prominent positions at AEG, Bayer, Bosch, Daimler Benz, and Siemens, bringing with them new methods for mass production, new ideas, and new business practices. Following World War II, alumni from the first exchanges founded the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft (CDG) in 1949 to help engineers, businessmen and farmers gain international work experience necessary for the rebuilding of Germany . . . .

EXCERPT: . . . A for­mer CIA con­tract pilot, who once flew the run into Paraguay and Argentina to the Bor­mann ranch described the estate as remote, ‘worth your life unless you entered their air space with the right iden­ti­fi­ca­tion codes. . . .
