FTR #925 Painting Oswald “Red,” Part 1

One of the nicknames Mr. Emory has bestowed upon “Eddie the Friendly Spook” Snowden is “The Obverse Oswald.” Whereas Lee Harvey Oswald was a U.S. intelligence officer infiltrated into the Soviet Union, repatriated and infiltrated into leftist organizations, given a “left cover” and then framed for the assassination of J.F.K. (and killed before he could exonerate himself), Snowden has been infiltrated into Russia and portrayed as a hero. Snowden, like Oswald, is involved in an “op.”
Just as Oswald was “painted Red,” Russia appears to have been framed in the U.S. media for the hack of the Democratic National Committee and the non-hack of NSA cyberweapons by the so-called Shadow Brokers.

In this first of two programs, we review the process of “painting Oswald Red,” by way of gaining historical perspective on the Snowden “op” and the framing of Russia for the high-profile hacks in the New Cold War.

After reviewing particulars concerning the framing of Russia for the hacks, we detail the framing of Lee Harvey Oswald and the Soviet Union for the assassination of Stephan Bandera, the head of the fascist Ukrainian OUN/B.

Supposedly executed by the KGB, the killing was almost certainly done by the West, with the BND being the most likely agency involved.

Elements of the W.A.C.C.F.L. (the forerunner of the World Anti-Communist League) disseminated the disinformation that Oswald was trained by the same KGB sub-group that managed Bogdan Stashynsky, the killer of Bandera.

After Oswald returned to the U.S., he was infiltrated into the Fair Play For Cuba Committee (he was its only New Orleans member). Oswald’s alleged pro-Castro stance received considerable exposure as a result of an interview he did with WDSU in New Orleans. That interview, arranged by the Information Council of the Americas, featured Oswald discussing his Marxist sympathies and his “defection” to the Soviet Union.

The Information Council of the Americas had close links to the U.S. intelligence community. The net effect of the painting of Oswald Red was to motivate liberals and President Johnson to cover-up the truth concerning the assassination, out of fear that if the American public believed that Kennedy was killed as a result of a Communist conspiracy, it could lead to a Third World War.

Program Highlights Include: Oswald’s WDSU gaffe in which he disclosed his relationship with the U.S. government while in the U.S.S.R.; the highly unlikely fact that alleged K.G.B. operative Stashynsky had the broken key to Bandera’s apartment in his possession when he went to trial two years later; the equally unlikely proposition that the other half of the broken key was still in the lock of Bandera’s apartment two years later!


Was Micah X. Johnson REALLY Acting Alone?

Eerie parallels exist between Micah X. Johnson, the “lone gunman” in the Dallas shooting and the assassination of JFK, which took place a few blocks away: there was “triangulated fire;” two other “uncooperative” suspects were taken into custody; the loquacious “lone-nut gunman” was killed before the judicial and journalistic processes could unfold; casualties were taken to Parkland Hospital. Might this have been a provocation by fascists–in and/or out of government, designed to heat up the racial front for the Trumpenkampfverbande?


FTR #913 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Bringing up to date topics covered in previous programs and posts, this broadcast begins with further coverage of the development of UFOs–so-called “flying saucers.” They were observed at the Roswell and Area 51 military bases and described as having been developed by the CIA, not “space aliens.”

In numerous posts and programs, we have noted that the GOP/Underground Reich element of U.S. intelligence has used Muslim Brotherhood-derived jihadis as proxy warriors and armed heralds of corporatist economics. In that context, we highlight the frankly suspicious release of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s immigration file–only 206 of 651 pages were released in their entirety.

The use of Islamists as proxy warriors also bears consideration in light of law enforcement’s casual attitude toward 17 Muslim men who fired “hundreds of shots” and were “chanting” in the early morning hours in a park in San Bernardino County in California. Why wasn’t the FBI more concerned?

With tensions rising in the Western Pacific between the U.S. and China, newly-elected Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte harbors deep resentment of the U.S. over the extraction of a self-proclaimed CIA agent who incurred criminal charges in Mindanao while apparently looking for Golden Lily loot in the Islands.

After detailing yet another “suicide” of a key executive of Swiss Re, we present a significant analysis of the recent replacement of the head of the Israeli Defense Force with Avigdor Lieberman, the head of a far-right wing Israeli political party: “Israel has been ‘infected by the seeds of fascism,’ he [former Prime Minister Ehud Barak] said.”

Program Highlights Include: The CIA’s use of Gerhard von Mende, Nazi Germany’s top official coordinating Islamist forces working for the Third Reich; The Carl Duisberg Society’s sponsorship of Mohamed Atta associate and Chechen jihadi Mohamedou Ould Slahi.


President Elect of Philippines Dislikes U.S. over a Possible “Golden Lily” Incident

Philippines president-elect Rodrigo Duterte harbors animosity toward the United States over an incident that may have stemmed from the search for the vast gold reserves stashed by the Japanese under the Golden Lily program.

FTR #892 The So-Called “Kennedy Curse”

The recent denial of parole to RFK assassination patsy Sirhan Sirhan calls to mind the so-called “Kennedy Curse”–the media’s rationalization for the deaths of members of the Kennedy family. This invocation of magical forces to dismiss the lethal conspiratorial process underlying the deaths of JFK, RFK and (in all probability) JFK, jr. allows our society to ignore its own political reality. After discussing RFK associate Paul Schrade’s testimony in Sirhan’s parole hearing, we review some of the facts of the case. As Schrade said: “The truth is in the prosecution’s own records and the autopsy, . . . . It says Sirhan couldn’t have shot Robert Kennedy and didn’t. He was out of position. . . . The LAPD and LA DA knew two hours after the fatal shoot­ing of Robert Kennedy that he was shot by a sec­ond gun­man and they had con­clu­sive evi­dence that Sirhan Bishara Sirhan could not and did not do it,” the state­ment said. “The offi­cial record shows that [the pros­e­cu­tion at Sirhan’s trial] never had one wit­ness – and had no phys­i­cal nor bal­lis­tic evi­dence – to prove Sirhan shot Robert Kennedy. . . Evi­dence locked up for 20 years shows that the LAPD destroyed phys­i­cal evi­dence and hid bal­lis­tic evi­dence exon­er­at­ing Sirhan, and cov­ered up con­clu­sive evi­dence that a sec­ond gun­man fatally wounded Robert Kennedy.” Much of the first half of the program is devoted to recounting the experience of Wayne January, an aviation-firm co-owner who sold a DC-3 to a CIA air proprietary named “Houston Air Center.” A former Cuban air force officer, who was a veteran of the Bay of Pigs, had been recruited to refit, and then fly, the aircraft. While working with January, he disclosed that his employers planned to kill JFK, and that they also planned to kill Robert Kennedy and “any other Kennedy who gets into that position.” When JFK, jr. was being bruited about as a possible Vice-Presidential candidate on the 2000 Democratic ticket, he was killed in the crash of his private plane. Program Highlights Include: Robert Kennedy’s plans to re-open the investigation into his brother’s murder after he became President; the fact that JFK, jr. was an experienced pilot, contrary to public pronouncements; that the weather was clear when his plane went down, contrary to public pronouncements; that eyewitnesses saw Kennedy’s plane explode; irregularities about JFK, jr.’s autopsy; indications that JFK, jr.’s plane was experiencing mechanical difficulties.


FTR #889 Intercept This! Compendium on Citizen Omidyar

Drawing together information presented in numerous broadcasts over the period of several years, this program highlights the endeavors of Glenn Greenwald’s journalistic/financial angel Pierre Omidyar. Guided by the Austrian School/free-market, neo-liberal economics of Hernando De Soto, Omidyar’s “philanthropic” efforts are closely aligned with covert action implemented in concert with U.S. intelligence cutouts such as U.S. Agency for International Development, the National Endowment for Democracy and the Ford Foundation. Focusing on the Omidyar Network’s SKS organization, the discussion notes the brutal, lethal results of its micro-finance programs in India. Omidyar Network’s key Indian functionary Jayant Sinha, took time off to help direct the election campaign of Narendra Modi, whose BJP is a cat’s paw for the RSS, a Hindu nationalist/fascist organization inspired by Hitler and Mussolini. Three quarter of Modi’s cabinet was selected from the RSS, to which Modi belonged. (Gandhi was assassinated by a member of RSS.) One of the key vehicles for Omidyar Network’s “philanthropy” in India is the Rural Development Institute (renamed “Landesa”), developed by Roy Prosterman. Prosterman’s RDI was a key feature of the Phoenix assassination program in Vietnam. Citizen Omidyar has also helped to fund the return to power of the OUN/B fascists in Ukraine, again partnering with U.S. intelligence cutouts such as U.S. AID and the National Endowment for Democracy. Program Highlights Include: Modi’s projected rollback of India’s laws against child labor; the stifling of freedom of speech under Modi’s regime; the Modi government’s complicity in lethal anti-Muslim vigilante actions; the neo-liberal economic goals of Omidyar Network’s “land acquisition” micro-finance projects; Omidyar protege Oleh Rybachuk’s participation in the Yuschenko government; Rybachuk’s efforts to integrate Ukraine into NATO and the EU; Omidyar protege Svitlana Zalischuk’s efforts to integrate Ukraine into NATO and the EU, mentored by Rybachuk; Omidyar protege Zalischuk’s efforts on behalf of the lustration laws, seen as the legal foundation for a broad-based purge; Zalischuk’s efforts promoting networking between Ukrainian Nazi parties such as Svoboda and the so-called “moderate” parties; Omidyar’s partnering with the National Endowment for Democracy to create a “fact-funding” service; review of the development of the NED as a cutout for U.S. intelligence by William Casey and the Reagan administration.


FTR #883 The Times They Have A’ Changed: JFK and the Steel Crisis of 1962

On the cusp of a new year–a Presidential election year at that–analysis of President Kennedy’s handling of the steel crisis of 1962 illustrates just how far we have descended in the 50-plus years since his death. After brokering an agreement between the United Steelworkers union and United States Steel aimed at holding down inflation, Kennedy was blindsided by United States Steel, acting in concert with other large steelmakers and, behind them, the luminaries of corporate America. Whereas the union rank and file embraced a contract encompassing lower wages, U.S. Steel promptly announced a 3.5 percent price increase. Kennedy used the full force of the Federal government against U.S. Steel, forcing rollback of the price increase. This earned Kennedy the hatred of big business. Program Highlights Include: Henry Luce’s “Fortune” magazine’s publication of an editorial foreshadowing JFK’s murder; big business’ view of JFK as a quasi-communist; the vigorous action taken by Robert Kennedy’s Department of Justice against the big steel makers; JFK’s public excoriation of the leaders of Big Steel as enemies of the people; JFK’s re-direction of defense contracts to smaller steel firms that had not raised prices.


Nazis in Ukraine, Hypocrisy Elsewhere, Including Israel

Addressing the Knesset (Israel’s parliament), Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko recently gave a pro-forma apology for the participation of Ukrainians in the Holocaust. Israel is among the countries that glossed over Poroshenko’s honoring of the OUN/B executioners at Babi Yar (right). The recent election of a Nazi mayor in a Ukrainian town should surprise no one.

FTR #876 The OUN/B and the Assassination of JFK

Highlighting the links between the OUN/B and the assassination of JFK, the broadcast underscores the disinformation linking the alleged KGB assassination of Stephan Bandera with Lee Harvey Oswald. Supposedly trained as an assassin by the same KGB units that allegedly killed Bandera, Oswald was “painted red” in order to deflect blame for the assassination onto the Soviet Union. The disinformation linking the Bandera assassination with the killing of Kennedy was largely disseminated by elements that were to coalesce as the World Anti-Communist League a few years later. Both the OUN/B elements in the United States and key figures in the cover-up of the JFK assassination track back to the Crusade For Freedom, a covert operation that precipitated the formation of a Nazi branch of the GOP. Program Highlights Include: Senator Thomas Dodd’s role in spreading the KGB killed Kennedy disinformation; Dodd’s links to the American Security Council; the role of OUN/B functionary Lev Dobriansky in disseminating the Oswald/KGB/Bandera killing disinformation; the roles of Ronald Reagan, Allen Dulles, Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush in both the Crusade For Freedom activities and the events in Dallas in 1963.


FTR #871 Daniel Hopsicker Rides Again!

Happily recovered from major heart surgery, heroic investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker rejoins our airwaves to recount some of his investigations, old and new. We begin with Daniel’s reportage on Jeb Bush’s role in covering up the milieu of Huffman Aviation and Mohamed Atta’s activities in South Florida. Daniel’s investigations into intelligence-community-connected drug smuggling began with his investigation into Barry Seal. Seal’s involvement with spook activities apparently began with his membership in a Civil Air Patrol unit commanded by CIA officer David Ferrie, a unit that included Lee Harvey Oswald. Much of the program was spent highlighting some of Daniel’s overlapping stories about the intelligence community and the drug traffic. Program highlights include: the role of H.L. Hunt’s granddaughter in the activities surrounding what Daniel terms “Cocaine One;” the heroism of several Mexican women who are telling the truth about the involvement of the Mexican government with the cartels; the bust of a major drug smuggling flight on property owned by socialite Paris Hilton; a constellation of apparent drug smuggling activities surrounding actor Vince Vaughn’s mother.
