FTR #931 The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 10: Echoes From the Past, Visions of the Future

With the election over, the Trumpenkampfverbande is now positioned to solidify its primary function—the successful transition of the Underground Reich from a clandestine institutional element into a broad-based, above-ground mass movement.

Closing his campaign with an overtly anti-Semitic tweet: “ . . . . From a technical and thematic perspective it’s a well made ad. It’s also packed with anti-Semitic dog whistles, anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Semitic vocabulary. I’m not even sure whether it makes sense to call them dog whistles. The four readily identifiable American bad guys in the ad are Hillary Clinton, George Soros (Jewish financier), Janet Yellen (Jewish Fed Chair) and Lloyd Blankfein (Jewish Goldman Sachs CEO). . . . This is an anti-Semitic ad every bit as much as the infamous Jesse Helms ‘white hands’ ad or the Willie Horton ad were anti-African-American racist ads. Which is to say, really anti-Semitic. You could even argue that it’s more so, given certain linguistic similarities with anti-Semitic propaganda from the 1930s. But it’s not a contest. This is an ad intended to appeal to anti-Semites and spread anti-Semitic ideas. . .”
Again, Trump has formally legitimized Nazi/white supremacist elements: “. . . .’Trump has shown that our message is healthy, normal and organic — and millions of Americans agree with us,’ said Matthew M. Heimbach, a co-founder of the Traditionalist Youth Network, a white nationalist group that claims to support the interests of working-class whites. It also advocates the separation of the races. . . . ‘For racists in this country, this campaign has been a complete affirmation of their fears, worries, dreams and hopes,’ said Ryan Lenz, the editor of the Hatewatch blog at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks such groups from its headquarters in Montgomery, Ala. ‘Most things they believe have been legitimized, or have been given the stamp of approval, by mainstream American politics to the point now where it’s no longer shameful to be a racist.’ . . . .”

Trump’s campaign will include the overt fascists who have supported him. ” . . . . ‘I have been very surprised that we have not seen attractive, well-spoken, racially aware candidates running for local office,’ Jared Taylor, head of the white nationalist American Renaissance publication and annual conference, told TPM in a Wednesday phone call. ‘I think this will be inevitable, and I think that Trump will have encouraged this. That our people will run for school board, city council, mayor, all that I anticipate certainly.’ . . . .”

Trump’s “alt-right” campaign manager Stephen K. Bannon is being considered for White House Chief of Staff: “President-elect Donald Trump is strongly considering naming his campaign CEO Steve Bannon to serve as his White House chief of staff, a source with knowledge of the situation told CNN on Thursday. . . .”

In FTR #906, we noted the highly partisan position taken by FBI director James Comey in the campaign, as well as noting the media prominence given to the spurious book “Clinton Cash,” authored by Koch brothers’ protégé Peter Schweizer (aided by Breitbart editor and Trump campaign manager Stephen K. Bannon.)

It turns out that Comey’s (probably) decisive last-minute intervention in the campaign may well have been precipitated by a “Trumpenkampfverbande” faction within the FBI, who were taking their cues from “Clinton Cash!”

Program Highlights Include: The Trumpenkampfverbande’s compilation of an enemies list, a la Richard Nixon; the stunning acquittal of the Bundy Brigade, after their illegal occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife refuge; reflections on the implications of that acquittal against the background of the massive Trump faction within the FBI; Alfa Bank consultant Richard Burt’s role as a foreign policy advisor to Donald Trump; Burt’s position as Regan’s ambassador to Germany; Burt’s lobbying on behalf of a natural gas pipeline financed, in part, by major German corporations; review of the links between Alfa Bank and the Trump organization; review of the links between Alfa Group and Marc Rich’s operations; review of James Comey’s investigations of Marc Rich; speculation about the possible role of the Alfa/Trump and Alfa/Rich links in Comey’s behavior during the campaign.


Rehabilitating the Historical Reputation of the SS

We have frequently made reference to the Nazi tract “Serpent’s Walk,” in which the SS goes underground at the end of World War II, buys into the opinion-forming media and effects a cognitive metamorphosis that celebrates the Third Reich and the SS as heroes. Now, the Baltic states and Ukraine are celebrating the Waffen SS as freedom fighters. Estonia has introduced legislation that would formally designate Estonian Waffen SS units as “freedom fighters.” All of the contents of this website as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of videotaped lectures are available on a 32GB flash drive.

German Corporations Buying Major U.S. Businesses

German corporations are ramping up purchases of key American companies. Always bear in mind the control of corporate Germany by the Bormann capital network, the economic component of a Third Reich gone underground. Fundamental here, as well, is the work of Dorothy Thompson, who (writing of the Third Reich’s plans for global domination in 1940), related that the masters of German industry, finance and politics saw economic control leading automatically to political control.

FTR #815 Walkin’ the Snake at Al Jazeera

In previous posts, we have noted that Al Jazeera is run by the Muslim Brotherhood. We have also dealt with the Nazi tract “Serpent’s Walk,” which focuses on a Nazi takeover of the U.S. in the mid-21st century. Fundamental to the scenario presented in the book is the Underground Reich/SS money component buying into the opinion-forming media, in order to swing the American people’s point of view in a pro-Nazi direction. With Al Jazeera among those media outlets gaining gravitas in the U.S., it is worth examining the network in detail to understand its relationship with the Brotherhood, an Islamic fascist organization. The Al Jazeera network’s shepherding of a report about the late Yasser Arafat having been poisoned with polonium 210 affords us an ideal opportunity to evaluate the outlet’s journalistic integrity. (Polonium 210 is a highly radioactive substance.) The “investigation” is an Al Jazeera “op” from start to finish, overseen by a former U.S. State Department security officer. The alleged “poisoning” is: extraordinarily unlikely; at variance with the conclusions of the French medical team attending Arafat and in conflict with the conclusions of the PLO leader’s personal physician, who attributed the death to AIDS.


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.)


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.


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.


FTR #802 The Luxembourg Connection (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?” Part 2)

This broadcast illustrates the deep political relationships that evolved from the Third Reich’s formal military occupation of Europe. These relationships are inextricably linked with the remarkable and deadly Bormann capital network that forms the basis of much of Mr. Emory’s analytical paradigm. Taken in concert, they help to illustrate what Mr. Emory means by “Underground Reich.” Angela Merkel’s selection of austerity advocate Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Union Commission will see a long-time German ally and son of a Wehrmacht combatant ascend to the pinnacle of EU governorship. The connections dominating the background and character of the Germanophile Juncker track back to the Nazi occupation of Luxembourg during World War II and cartel connections that facilitated the Third Reich’s amoeba-like absorption of the European economy. During the Nazi occupation, Luxembourg’s economy was folded into “Europa Germanica,” with Gustav Koenigs, Chairman of the Bush-Family linked Hamburg-Amerika Line and Secretary of State of the Third Reich overseeing the steel cartel ARBED and much of Luxembourg’s other business. After the war, Luxembourg continued to be a primary element of the Bormann capital network.


FTR #793 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Updating and introducing a number of stories, this program notes the death of Nazi art dealer Cornelius Gurlitt, highlighted in FTR #791. After detailing the background and political connections of Frazier Glenn Miller, accused of killing three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas, the program highlights the growing control of American media outlets by doctrinaire fascist organizations with a heritage evolving from World War II. In addition to the spectacular growth of publishing giant Bertelsmann, with a Nazi and SS heritage, the broadcast underscores the control of the Al-Jazeera network by the Muslim Brotherhood. The curious advertising behavior of BMW, controlled by the heirs of Joseph Goebbels is set forth, as well.


FTR #769 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 12: Blitzkrieg on American Internet and Electronics Business

The concerns expressed in a recent San Jose Mercury News editorial and echoed by Silicon Valley CEO’s at a recent high tech conference go to the thrust of the main part of what we feel is the primary goal of Snowden’s multi-layered psy-op: to do to the Silicon Valley and the U.S. electronic business what the German and Japanese automobile industry’s capture of much of the U.S. market did to the city of Detroit. German chancellor Angela Merkel appears to be holding U.S. high-tech companies hostage to the BND’s inclusion in the “Five Eyes club,” consisting of the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
