FTR #812 Kim Dotcom and Divine Laissez Faire Economics

A colleague of Eddie the Friendly Spook [Snowden], Julian Assange and Glenn Greenwald, Kim Schmitz, aka “Kim Dotcom”] espouses the same libertarian/free market ideology underlying the “corporatism” of Benito Mussolini. With an extensive criminal record in Germany and elsewhere, “Der Dotcommandant” has eluded serious punishment for his offenses, including executing the largest insider trading scheme in German history.

Embraced by the file-sharing community and elements of the so-called progressive sector, Dotcom actually allied himself with John Banks and his far-right ACT Party in New Zealand. His embrace of the so-called progressive sector came later and is viewed as having damaged left-leaning parties at the polls. Dotcom is enamored of Nazi memorabilia and owns a rare, author-authographed copy of “Mein Kampf.”

Much of the second side of the program compares the “Divine, Theocratic” free-market economic theory of The Family and the corresponding ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. Both see wealth and economic privilege as a matter of divine will, with that perceived will being the governing ethos of an ideal society.


This ISIS (ISIL) Video Isn’t Generating the Gravitas of the Foley Execution

A video of ISIS (ISIL) followers swearing allegiance to the organization features a striking episode at about 1:05. The acolytes engage in some very “un-Islamic” gesturing (at right.) It graphically illustrates a dynamic we have spoken of so often. Central to an understanding of political conflicts throughout the 20th and 21st century is the concept of the Earth Island (also called “the World Island.”) This area is populated largely by Muslims, and political affiliation with, and/or control of, those population groups has long been seen as fundamental to domination of the Earth Island–that, in turn, is the geopolitical key to controlling the world. Imperial Germany made good use of Islamists as proxy warriors during the First World War, and the Third Reich developed and used that strategy extensively, in both its above-ground and underground phases. Western intelligence–the CIA and derivative organizations such as the Safari Club–have made extensive use of this stratagem during the Cold War and after.


The Unkrainian Weekly’s pro-OUN/B Bias

In our ongoing analysis of the Ukraine crisis, we have noted the presence of Michael Bociurkiw astride the “investigation” of the downing of MH flight 17. Bociurkiw was a writer and Assistant Editor for the Ukrainian Weekly, a newspaper with a very obvious pro-OUN/B bias. Representative of The Ukrainian Weekly’s pro-OUN/B coverage is this obituary of OUN/B leader Jaroslav Stetsko (also “Stetzko,” pictured at right with then Vice-President George H.W. Bush.)


Al-Jazeera, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Huffington Post

With the Middle East boiling over and the latest installment of predictable Hamas/Israeli bloodletting proceeding apace, it is depressing (though not surprising) to see The Huffington Post launch an Arab Language edition edited by a former Al-Jazeera “journalist.” Deeply connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, Al-Jazeera’s ascension as a supposedly credible media outlet marks another step in the realization of Serpent’s Walk. Soldiers of Hamas–the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood–are seen saluting at right.


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 Muslim 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 examining 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 Lyashko, 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.


Update on the MH 17 Shootdown

Supplementing information presented in FTR #803, we learn that a website catering to global business travelers presented information pointing to Ukrainian military personnel as the “perps” of the shootdown of MH 17. The last minute change of course of the doomed plane was confirmed by an Air India aircraft nearby.


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 Bociurkiw, an apparent pro-OUN/B Ukrainian expatriate from Canada. Bociurkiw 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.


Michael [AKA “Mykhailo”] Bociurkiw, The International Institute of Islamic Thought and the Downed Malaysian Airliners

In our last post, we noted that the investigation into the downing of MH 17 in Ukraine is, to a considerable extent, being represented to the world by one Michael “Mykhailo” Bociurkiw, who appears to be associated with the OUN/B milieu. Bociurkiw also edited, and wrote an introduction to, a puff-piece book about Mahathir Muhammed, the anti-Semitic former Prime Minister of Malaysia. Another introductory piece for the book was written by Abdullah Badawi who, like Mahathir, was trained by Malaysian Muslim Brotherhood luminary Mohammad M. Abdul Rauf. Rauf, like Grover Norquist client Anwar Ibrahahim, was close to the International Institute of Islamic Thought, raided in the 3/20/2002 Operation Green Quest raids. Zaharie Shah piloted Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 and was a political disciple of Anwar Ibrahim (also a former Malaysian Prime Minister.)


The Return of Bush’s Buddy: “Sammy the Aryan” Making the Rounds in Support of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood

For some time, we’ve covered one of George W. Bush’s Muslim Brotherhood political associates Sami al-Arian. The Operation Green Quest investigation into the financing of terrorist groups (including al-Qaeda, Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad) stemmed from an investigation into Sammy al-Arian (“Sammy the Aryan,” as we call him.) One of the leaders of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (pictured at right), al-Arian is now turning out in support of the ousted Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.


Update on “Turkish Taffy”

Crushing political and journalistic opposition, the Erdogan government is inextricably linked with the Muslim Brotherhood. Manifesting an Islamist agenda, the regime uses the Fetullah Gulen cult and tracks back to the Al-Taqwa milieu of World War II fascists, terrorists.
