FTR #994 What Was Old Is New Again

This broadcast recaps material from previous programs, underscoring key points of information from current developments.

Last week, we opened our program with an article from Consortium News about some alarming developments in Ukraine–a piece of legislation approved by the Rada (the Ukrainian parliament) that might augur World War III.

One of the few media outlets that has covered the return to power of the OUN/B’s successor fascist organizations in Ukraine, Consortium News was founded and headed by Robert Parry.

Parry passed away last weekend.

Mr. Emory posted the following comment on the Consortium News article about Robert’s passing:

A very, very sad occasion. It was my privilege to have interviewed Robert a number of times over the years, including an interview–scheduled days before–that took place on the day he learned of Gary Webb’s death.

It was also my privilege to have used many articles from Consortium News in my weekly broadcasts, including, and especially, his reportage about the return to power of the OUN/B successor organizations in Ukraine.

Very few have manifested the courage and integrity to report honestly on those events.

Now, there will be fewer.

Rest in peace, Robert.

Next, we return to the subject of Peter Thiel, of “Team Trump,” Facebook and Palantir.

We have covered Peter Thiel in numerous programs, beginning with our warning about him in FTR #718.

Some of the points we have made about him include:

1.-His family background in the Frankfurt (Germany) chemical business. Probably I.G. Farben/Bormann, in that context.
2.-His primary role in Palantir, apparently the maker of the PRISM software at the epicenter of L’Affaire Snowden.
3.-His role as the primary financier of Ron Paul’s super PAC. (Paul is an unabashed white supremacist, joined at the hip with David Duke and the neo-Confederate movement. He was the Presidential candidate of choice for Eddie “The Friendly Spook” Snowden and Julian Assange.)
4.-Thiel’s networking with movers and shakers from In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s high-tech venture capital firm.
5.-Thiel’s active anti-immigrant stance.
6.-Thiel’s seminal networking with other tech titans and venture capital firms, including some with political and historical tributaries leading back to the apartheid regime in South Africa.

With Thiel among the candidates to head Trump’s President’s Intelligence Advisory Board, we note that his apocalyptic, anti-Enlightenment ideology draws on, among other influences, Carl Schmitt. Arguably the prime mover behind the German Conservative Revolution, Schmitt was also: “. . . . a Nazi and the Third Reich’s preeminent legal theorist. For Thiel, Schmitt is an inspiring throwback to a pre-Enlightenment age, who exalts struggle and insists that the discovery of enemies is the foundation of politics. . .”

There has been a fair amount of buzz about the release of additional, previously classified, documents about the assassination of President Kennedy.

An interesting document came to light in the recent release of files relating to the assassination of JFK. Jack Ruby told an FBI informant to “watch the fireworks” in Dealey Plaza that day.

“Jack Ruby, the man who eventually shot Lee Harvey Oswald, told an FBI informant to ‘watch the fireworks’ on the day President John F. Kennedy was killed, according to new records the National Archives released Friday. . . . ‘The informant stated that on the morning of the assassination, Ruby contacted him and asked if he would ‘like to watch the fireworks,” an FBI record dated April 6, 1977, says. ‘He was with Jack Ruby and standing at the corner of the Postal Annex Building facing the Texas School Book Depository Building at the time of the shooting. . . .”

This might be evaluated against the background of FTR #963, relating–among other things–a reading of Jack Ruby’s Warren Commission testimony. (A reading of Ruby’s testimony is re-broadcast in this program.)

When interviewed by the Warren Commission, Jack Ruby indicated that he had been part of a conspiracy to kill Kennedy and that he feared for his life. The Warren Commission turned a deaf ear to his desire to go to Washington and “spill the beans.”

Gerald Ford (who succeeded Nixon as President and pardoned him of all crimes committed), Leon Jaworski (a Warren Commission counsel who was a director of a CIA domestic funding conduit and who was selected by Nixon to be Watergate Special Prosecutor) and Arlen Specter (another Warren Commission counsel who was Nixon’s first choice as his personal defense attorney in the Watergate affair) were present at Ruby’s de facto confession.

Warren Commission Counsel J. Lee Rankin is also present at this interview. Nixon first selected J. Lee Rankin to serve as Watergate Special Prosecutor. Rankin was subsequently tabbed to review the Watergate tapes and determine which would be released. Rankin was the Warren Commission’s liaison between the commission and both the CIA and the FBI. Rankin was a key proponent of the so-called “Magic Bullet Theory.”

We conclude with discussion of another aspect of the JFK assassination.

Jane Mayer’s Dark Money has received considerable discussion and media play over the last couple of years. In past discussion of the Koch family, we noted that patriarch Fred Koch worked with Hitler building one of Nazi Germany’s most important refineries–one capable of refining the high-octane fuel needed by fighter planes.

In addition, we noted that Fred Koch was one of the first members of the John Birch Society.

Mayer notes that Fred Koch helped finance ads in the wake of the JFK assassination that pinned responsibility for the crime on the Soviet Union–one of the primary levels of disinformation.

” . . . . In a hasty turnabout, soon after the assassination, Fred Koch took out full-page ads in The New York Times and The Washington Post, mourning JFK. The ads advanced the conspiracy theory that JFK’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had acted as part of a Communist plot. The Communists wouldn’t “rest on this success,” the ads warned. In the corner was a tear-out order form, directing the public to sign up for John Birch Society mailings. . . .”

We have covered the “painting of Oswald Red” in numerous programs, including FTR #’s 925 and 926.


FTR #828 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

As the title indicates this program brings up to date a number of stories covered in the past and introduces some new topics of discussion. The topics covered include: JFK’s 1963 attempts at normalizing relations with Cuba; new information casting doubt on the “lone nut” theory of the 2001 anthrax attacks (which fingered Bruce Ivins as a “lone nut” perpetrator); Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s suppression of political dissent, echoing the policies of Francisco Franco; a Catholic mass held to honor the memory of the murderous World War II Ustachi leader Ante Pavelic; the global economic elites’ pursuit of the same economic policies that drove people into the arms of fascism in the 1930’s; Ayn Rand’s role in investigating the 1940’s movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” as possible crypto-Communist propaganda; the GOP’s implementation of fraudulent “dynamic scoring” economic evaluation; theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s warning that the development of Artificial Intelligence could threaten the existence of humanity; Mr. Emory’s 1995 warning that the development of Artificial Intelligence could threaten the existence of humanity.


Nazi and German Support for the Apartheid Government

In the aftermath of Nelson Mandela’s passing, it is important to remember the true nature of the forces he opposed and the fact that they did NOT disappear with the demise of Apartheid. In FTR #225, among other programs, we examined the Nazi heritage of the Broederbond, the primary power center of the Apartheid government of South Africa. In Miscellaneous Archive Show M8, we noted the profound German role in aiding the South African effort to develop the atomic bomb. An incisive post by German-Foreign-Policy.com (which feeds along the bottom of the front page) supplements the information in these programs.


Snowden’s Ride, Part 7: Citizen Greenwald, The National Alliance and The Underground Reich

In our last post, we highlighted Greenwald’s five-year long representation of Matthew Hale, head of the World Church of the Creator. In addition to Hale, Greenwald also represented a consortium of neo-Nazi/White Supremacist groups, including the National Alliance. Accused of inciting followers to racist violence, The National Alliance was defended by Greenwald in order to preserve their right to free speech. National Alliance books are specifically crafted to incite murder and terrorism. National Alliance head William Luther Pierce networked with Nazis in Latin America, as did the terrorist group The Order, which his work inspired. UPDATED ON 7/20/2013, 7/29/2013.


Qatar, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Fischer/Tropsch Process

Past programs have dealt with the resurrection of the Fischer-Tropsch process, developed by I.G. Farben and the Third Reich to synthesize oil from coal, among other fuels. The Fischer-Tropsch process is being utilized in Qatar to synthesize fuel from natural gas. One of the many dark clouds on the horizon of the Middle East concerns the growing and pivotal role Qatar is playing in the dynamics evolving from the Arab Spring. Awash with cash from its vast natural gas and fossil fuel resources, Qatar is financing Muslim Brotherhood-related activities, including the Al-Jazeera network. With Qatar subsidizing Islamic fascism through the Muslim Brotherhood and generating capital through the application of Nazi science, the possibility of that small but powerful nation as an Underground Reich subsidiary should be seriously considered.


Horror Show in the Balkans

The NATO-installed regime of Hasim Thaci manifests pervasive political and social criminality. Thaci is alleged to maintain a harem of more than 50 sex slaves, held in bondage by his bodyguards and reportedly offering their favors to KFOR and EULEX personnel. Successors to the 21st Waffen SS (“Skanderbeg”) Division and other fascist fighting formations from World War II, the Kosovo Liberation Army has turned that former Serbian province into little more than a German colony. Much of the international community continues to view Kosovo as a criminal entity operating outside the envelope of international law.


Director of South African Reserve Bank Under Fire for Holocaust Denial

Director of South African Reserve Bank expresses Nazi sympathies–recalls and refers to country’s historical heritage as an offshoot of the Third Reich during the Apartheid era.


Breaking the Relative Silence on Arab/Muslim Brotherhood Genocide in the Sudan

U.N. focusing on Israel, largely ignoring Arab genocide in the Sudan. Many South Sudanese seeking political freedom in Israel.


Golden Lily Loot, Nazis, White Supremacists and Islamists

Comment: For years, we’ve accessed the magnificent work of Sterling and Peggy Seagrave, whose landmark text Gold Warriors is the definitive work on the distribution of recovered World War II gold, Japanese Golden Lily treasure in particular. The focal point of decades of high-level political intrigue on the part of intelligence services, financial institutions and […]


FTR #718 In Your Facebook: A Virtual Panopticon?

Seen as a dream come true, Facebook could be your worst nightmare. Intelligence services (including CIA), right-wing ideologues with apparent Underground Reich links are deeply involved with the network.
