Who’s “SAAR-y” Now?

A major player in the SAAR network of companies raided by Operation Green Quest agents in 2002 was Mohamed Hadid. The real estate developer is prominent in the Bel Air market, among others. Are any of his enterprises vehicles for money laundering?

Jeb Bush Stumbles when Asked about His Actions Relating to the Day After 9/11

Heroic investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker is still rockin’! “Back in the [journalistic] saddle,” he relates that Jeb Bush stumbled badly when asked about his actions on the day after 9/11. When asked about his presence on a C-130 cargo plane carrying the files of Huffman Aviation to the Washington D.C. area, he denied it.

They’re B-A-A-A-C-K! Subprime, er, “Non-Prime” Mortgage-Backed Securities

Hungry investors are now focusing on bonds backed by US residential mortgages that do not meet strict credit guidelines. We also note that, in FTR #412, we directly foreshadowed the financial crisis in early 2003.

Open Heart Surgery for Daniel Hopsicker

Some listeners may be aware that investigative reporter Daniel Hopsicker had open heart surgery some months ago, accounting for his absence from the blogosphere. Fortunately, he is OK and still with us. We hope listeners will join us in wishing Daniel a continued recovery and good health. He is a true American hero and deserves your thoughts, prayers and well wishes.

Ralph Nader, Rand Paul and the Koch Brothers

Some listeners/readers might wonder why we refer to the “progressive” sector as “the so-called progressive sector.” Just examine who Darth Nader is championing in the 2016 Presidential race–Rand Paul. Paul idolizes the Koch brothers. Well, we guess that is the only way that he could top off having helped put George Bush in office in 2000.

Shifting Sands of the Alwaleed Desert

A widely reported story concerns the “20th [9/11] hijacker” Zaccharias Moussaoui’s accusations that a number of prominent Saudi princes helped finance al-Qaeda, including Prince Alwaleed, the fabulously wealthy investor who was the second largest stockholder in Ruppert Murdoch’s Newscorp. The day after the report surfaced, we learn that Alwaleed sold almost all of his stock in the firm. We wonder if the two events might be connected?

The “Sammy the Aryan” Show Hits the Road

After a badly-compromised “investigation,” the political odyssey of George W. Bush associate Sami al-Arian (“Sammy the Aryan”) has taken another turn. One of the founders of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (pictured at right), Al-Arian is going to be deported. The investigation of al-Arian led to the Operation Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Had that investigation been properly undertaken, it would have exposed profound links between the Bush White House, the GOP and political “super lobbyist” Grover Norquist. In the event, al-Arian’s case was eclipsed and ultimately buried.

FTR #831 The Elderly “Wouldn’t Be Fucking Help­less if You Weren’t Send­ing them Fucking Checks to Sit on their Ass and Lay in Hos­pi­tals all Day”: The GOP’s Assault on Social Security

The title of the program is a verbatim quote from Edward Snowden–the Peach Fuzz Fascist–in 2009. The GOP-controlled 114th Congress is attempting to implement Snowden’s views. In addition to highlighting Snowden’s ultra-reactionary views about abolishing Social Security and restoring the gold standard, the broadcast sets forth the GOP’s disingenuous statements about the Social Security disability program, exemplified by Rand Paul’s bald-faced lies about the nature of the program. After chronicling the GOP’s 80-year war on Social Security, going back to the early days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s first term, the broadcast reviews the 1934 coup attempt by powerful, fascist industrial and financial interests. Those same plotters supported Mussolini’s “corporate state” and Hitler’s eugenics program, aimed at eliminating “useless bread gobblers.” Like Snowden, the 1934 coup plotters wanted to eliminate Social Security and restore the gold standard.


FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Levenda has posted an article (excerpted from his recent book) that encapsulates significant elements of discussion presented by Mr. Emory and featured on this website. Noting Imperial Germany’s use of Islamic proxy warriors during the First World War and Nazi Germany’s incorporation of the same stratagem, Levenda notes that Nazi elements have continued to use Muslim proxy warfare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Underground Reich. Having incorporated many important elements of Nazi Germany’s national security establishment into its own after World War II, the United States has co-opted the tactic of proxy war. To its detriment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Underground Reich and its Islamist proxies have their own agendas. Those agendas feature the defeat of the United States as a centerpiece of long-term strategy. Concluding with an examination of recent American military involvement, the program notes that much of what we are doing actually benfits Germany and occurs in areas formerly belonging to the Ottoman Empire.


FTR #805 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

As our title indicates, this program brings a number of paths of inquiry up to date, as well as highlighting some new points of interest. Beginning with the onslaught of ISIS–The Islamic State of Syria and Iraq–the broadcast sets forth information generally ignored in media coverage of the event. Chief of Saudi intelligence Prince Bandar–nicknamed “Bandar Bush” for his close relationship to the Bush family–may well have been the driving force behind the Iraqi and Syrian Sunni jihadists comprising ISIS. Perhaps that occasioned Bandar’s recent replacement as head of Saudi intelligence. Much of the program focuses on the formation of lethal right-wing military formations in both the United States and Germany. The recent standoff between Cliven Bundy’s paramilitary supporters and federal agents portends a more expanded and deadly militia and neo-secessionist landscape. The Bundyites did not operate in a vacuum, with ideological and journalistic support from the GOP and its amen chorus in the media. A clandestine army in early 1950’s Germany composed of Wehrmacht and Waffen SS veterans enjoyed the support of the Adenaurer government and the Gehlen-dominated BND. It was networked with the SS–still clearly active in the 1950’s.
