FTR #1125 Three-Dimensional Chess and the Covid-19 Outbreak: A Structural Overview

“A nation of sheep will beget a gov­ern­ment of wolves.”–Edward R. Mur­row

This pro­gram is an overview of a num­ber of over­lap­ping con­sid­er­a­tions in the Covid-19 out­break, which Mr. Emory calls a “Bio-Psy-Op.” These over­lap­ping areas will be pre­sent­ed in a series of pro­grams: FTR #1126 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 2: The Democ­ra­cy-Killing Virus; FTR #1127 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 3: The Eugenic Virus; FTR #1128 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 4: The Wealth-Con­cen­trat­ing Virus; FTR #1129 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 5: Walkin’ the Coro­n­avirus; FTR #1130 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 6: Context–The Chi­na-Killing Virus; FTR #1131 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse, Part 7: Pinch­back­’s Per­spec­tive and FTR #1132 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 8: The Nazi Virus.

Before dis­cussing the Covid-19 “op,” per se, we memo­ri­al­ized the bril­liant Kevin Coogan, author of “Dream­er of the Day: Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey and the Post­war Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al,” as well as numer­ous arti­cles. Kevin passed away on 2/27/2020 in New York City. We do not know the cause. Kevin was a bril­liant writer and ana­lyst and will be sore­ly missed.

In For The Record #233, we exam­ined Kev­in’s analy­sis of “The Order,” a fascist/mystical con­cept that was for­mu­lat­ed, in part by fas­cist mys­tic Julius Evola. Evola was a dom­i­nant philo­soph­i­cal and ide­o­log­i­cal influ­ence on Steve Ban­non, at the epi­cen­ter of the anti-Chi­na effort. (Mr. Emory mis­spoke himself–the pro­gram is FTR #233, not #312.)

The con­cept of three-dimen­sion­al chess derives from the old “Star Trek” tele­vi­sion series, in which the offi­cers played a vari­a­tion of chess that involved play­ing on three dif­fer­ent lev­els. Under­stand­ing the “Bio-Psy-Op” sim­i­lar­ly involves think­ing and aware­ness on at least three lev­els.

An op-ed col­umn in The New York Times by Bret Stephens goes to the essence of this “bio-psy-op.” ” . . . . The only cer­tain­ty is that, in the midst of a cri­sis, politi­cians are rarely penal­ized for pre­dict­ing the worst pos­si­ble out­come. If it comes to pass, they seem prophet­ic. If it doesn’t, they take cred­it for avert­ing cat­a­stro­phe. In the mean­time, they seek to enhance their pow­ers. . . . we might face not a reces­sion but a full-blown depres­sion, which would be finan­cial­ly ruinous for hun­dreds of mil­lions and have its own dis­as­trous knock-on effects in men­tal, emo­tion­al, and phys­i­cal health, includ­ing for the elder­ly and sick who already face the great­est risks from the virus. . . .”

Key points of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis, which will be devel­oped at much greater length and in much greater detail in the series of pro­grams not­ed above, includ­ing some of the arti­cles which will fig­ure into the analy­sis:

1.–Exemplifying the pro­found psy­cho­log­i­cal aspects of the Covid-19 Psy-Op is the phe­nom­e­non of the hoard­ing of toi­let paper. Mr. Emory views this as a deep Freudian/anal response to feel­ings of help­less­ness on the part of cit­i­zens. Toi­let paper is of no help against the virus, but is symp­to­matic of a deep-seat­ed per­son­al­i­ty dynam­ic seek­ing to man­i­fest some mea­sure of social con­trol. This was the sub­ject of a recent New York­er piece. ” . . . . ‘Con­trol­ling clean­li­ness around B.M.s is the ear­li­est way the child asserts con­trol,’ Andrea Green­man, the pres­i­dent of the Con­tem­po­rary Freudi­an Soci­ety, said. ‘The fact that now we are all pre­sum­ably los­ing con­trol cre­ates a regres­sive push to a very ear­ly time. So, I guess that trans­lates in the uncon­scious to ‘If I have a life­long sup­ply of toi­let paper, I’ll nev­er be out of con­trol, nev­er be a help­less, dirty child again.’ ’ . . . .”

2.–FTR #1126 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 2: The Democ­ra­cy-Killing Virus: The Covid-19 “op” is lead­ing to the atten­u­a­tion or elim­i­na­tion of democ­ra­cy all over the world. In addi­tion to dra­con­ian pow­ers pro­posed by “ex” CIA offi­cer and Attor­ney Gen­er­al William Barr, Trump has boast­ed about pow­ers grant­ed to him “that peo­ple don’t even know about.” Abroad, fas­cists and auto­crats from Vik­tor Orban to Naren­dra Modi are using the Covid-19 out­break to cement con­trol. Even Great Britain has man­i­fest­ed emer­gency pow­ers that one crit­ic termed “Eye-Water­ing.” Civ­il lib­er­ties are tak­ing a beat­ing, with “Pan­dem­ic Sur­veil­lance” enabling a mas­sive ero­sion of pri­va­cy that is unlike­ly to abate. There are ques­tions about whether the elec­tions will be held in Novem­ber. (“Trump Has Emer­gency Pow­ers We Aren’t Allowed to Know About” by Eliz­a­beth Gotein and Andrew Boyle; The New York Times; 4/10/2020.; “DOJ seeks new emer­gency pow­ers amid coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic” by Bet­sy Woodruff Swan; Politi­co; 03/21/2020; “Exclu­sive: Inside the Military’s Top Secret Plans If the Coro­n­avirus Crip­ples Gov­ern­ment” by William M.

3.–FTR #1127 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 3: The Eugenic Virus: The dis­pro­por­tion­ate dam­age being inflict­ed by the pan­dem­ic on minorities–African-Americans and Lati­nos in par­tic­u­lar, has received con­sid­er­able dis­cus­sion. Eco­nom­i­cal­ly dis­ad­van­taged to a con­sid­er­able extent and sub­ject to the phys­i­o­log­i­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal and behav­ioral lia­bil­i­ties stem­ming from that state of affairs, they are more vul­ner­a­ble to the rav­ages of the virus. In addi­tion, “social-dis­tanc­ing” is a lux­u­ry that many poor peo­ple can not afford. Anoth­er major con­sid­er­a­tion con­cerns the rationing of health care. Peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties are afraid they will be shunt­ed “to the back of the line” when it comes time for them to receive prop­er treat­ment. The elder­ly are falling ill and dying all over the world. (“Peo­ple with Dis­abil­i­ties Are Afraid They Will Be Dis­crim­i­nat­ed Against Because of Coro­n­avirus” by Rick Jer­vais; USA Today; 3/26/2020.; “Who Should Be Saved First?

4.–FTR #1128 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 4: The Wealth-Con­cen­trat­ing Virus: In FTR #‘s 1111 and 1112, among oth­er pro­grams, we spoke of the net­work­ing and invest­ing of Steve Ban­non, J. Kyle Bass and Tom­my Hicks, Jr. Bass, you will recall, is asym­met­ri­cal­ly invest­ed with regard to the economies in Hong Kong and Chi­na. He has cer­tain­ly made mon­ey, as have many oth­ers. With the Fed­er­al Reserve esti­mat­ing unem­ploy­ment at rates that may reach 32% and econ­o­mist Paul Krug­man opin­ing that this down­turn will be three to five times as bad as the 2008 finan­cial col­lapse, those who do have mon­ey will be able to buy up assets at pen­nies on the dol­lar. An arti­cle in The Guardian dis­cuss­es hedge fund returns of as much as 4,000+ per­cent for some firms. The pos­si­bil­i­ty of “insid­er knowl­edge” of the com­ing pan­dem­ic sug­gests itself. It should be not­ed that J. Kyle Bass made his for­tune bet­ting against the sub­prime hous­ing mar­ket. In this pro­gram, we will dis­cuss his role in help­ing to bring down Bear Stearns in the 2008 col­lapse. A for­mer employ­ee of that ill-fat­ed com­pa­ny, Bass leaked dam­ag­ing infor­ma­tion about Bear Stearns to a Wall Street Jour­nal reporter, there­by pre­cip­i­tat­ing the col­lapse of the firm.

5.–FTR #1129 Bio-Psy-Op Apoc­a­lypse Now, Part 5: Walkin’ The Coro­n­avirus: In the Nazi tract Ser­pen­t’s Walk–which we have dis­cussed for decades–the SS go under­ground (which they did), buy into the opin­ion-form­ing media (which they did) and, infil­trate the mil­i­tary (which they have done), and, after a ter­ror­ist attack by genet­i­cal­ly-engi­neered virus­es dec­i­mates large parts of the Unit­ed States, mar­tial law is declared and the Nazis take over. From Ser­pen­t’s Walk: “. . . . ‘Yes. Well. ‘Pacov’ stands for ‘Pan­dem­ic Com­mu­ni­ca­ble Virus,’ one of the ugli­er results of mil­i­tary exper­i­men­ta­tion with recom­bi­nant DNA. Do you know what that is?’. . . . ‘Very well, let me tell you in layman’s terms.’ Mul­der extend­ed a hand to shush Wrench, who had start­ed to speak. ‘Pacov con­sists of two sep­a­rate re-work­ings of two DNA chains of exist­ing virus­es. It’s a pig­gy-back weapon, a two-stage oper­a­tion. You send in the first stage. The vec­tors . . . agents of trans­mis­sion . . . for Pacov‑1 are exten­sive. It trav­els through the air, the water, or direct­ly from per­son-to-per­son and is high­ly con­ta­gious. It spreads for hun­dreds of miles, if con­di­tions are opti­mal.  Pacov‑1 pro­duces only a mild, flu-like infec­tion that dis­ap­pears with­in a day or two. Pub­lic health author­i­ties would over­look it, nev­er con­sid­er it a seri­ous epi­dem­ic, and even if they did they’d have to look care­ful­ly to iso­late it. Once a vic­tim is over the ‘flu,’ Pacov‑1 becomes dor­mant and almost unde­tectable. A month or two lat­er, you send in the sec­ond stage: Pacov‑2 is also a virus, just as con­ta­gious as the first, and just as harm­less by itself. It reacts with Pacov‑1 to pro­duce a pow­er­ful coag­u­lant. . . . you die with­in three min­utes. No warn­ing, no vac­cine, no cure. Those not exposed to both stages remain unharmed. . . . Pacov‑2 goes inert, like Pacov‑1 with­in a week or two. Then you get your victim’s coun­try, all his prop­er­ty, in undam­aged con­di­tion. . . . and a lot of corpses to bury.’ . . . .”

Next to Barag­o­na’s name, Gar­ri­son wrote: ‘Note Barag­o­na is impor­tant.’ The let­ter had been sent to Gar­ri­son by Glenn Pinch­back, and a car­bon copy was sent to Mendel Rivers, a con­gress­man from Geor­gia. (Pinch­back worked in the Oper­a­tions Com­mand at Fort Sill, where he inter­cept­ed mail.) In the let­ter, Fer­rie shared his dream of the re-uni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many and liv­ing in a world where all the cur­ren­cy was in Deutschmarks. Pinch­back­’s sum­ma­tion of the let­ter described a ‘Neo-Nazi plot to enslave Amer­i­ca in the name of anti-Com­mu­nism,’ and ‘a neo-Nazi plot gar­gan­tu­an in scope.’ The Fer­rie let­ter spoke of the need to kill all the Kennedys and Mar­tin Luther King, Jr. . . . Pinch­back also report­ed­ly obtained a let­ter from David Fer­rie to Barag­o­na con­fess­ing his role in the assas­si­na­tion of Robert Gehrig, who was a Nazi and Fort Sill sol­dier. . . .”

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.
