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.
