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.


Modified Limited Hangout on the Disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370

In FTR #790, we discussed the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. A recent Daily Mail story reinforces the investigative focus on the plane’s pilot–Zaharie Shah,reinforcing the fact that Shah was a follower of Anwar Ibrahim. The story does not mention, however that Anwar Ibrahim is a prominent member of the Muslim Brotherhood; a co-founder of the International Institute of Islamic Thought–one of the institutions that was a focal point of the Operations Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002; a consulting client of GOP kingpin Grover Norquist.


FTR #797 Cyber-Libertarian Fascism: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

In the long FTR series on L’Affaire Snowden, we noted that all of the players were outright fascists and/or exponents of corporatist economic theory. That includes Pierre Omidyar, Nazi fellow-traveler Glenn Greenwald’s financial angel and backer of First Look media. Touting the laissez-faire economics of the GOP and other corporatist elements around the world, Omidyar has also helped to finance the rise of fascist elements abroad, including assisting in the ascent of the OUN/B successor forces in the Ukraine, as well as Narendra Modi, heir to the RSS Hindu fascists that spawned his BJP. Julian Assange, his political idol Rand Paul, Rand Paul’s supporter Ralph Nader and Snowden himself all figure strongly into this unsavory political landscape.


The Bowe Bergdahl Controversy

With the Bergdahl “controversy,” American political culture continues to hit new lows, courtesy of the terrorist-coddling GOP and their Amen chorus in the media. John McCain–himself a former POW–seems intent on leading the GOP’s race to the bottom, no mean feat under the circumstances. Dewey Clarridge, himself a player in the Iran-Contra affair, was the source for much of the “secret intelligence” that has been utilized by Fox News, that beacon of journalistic integrity.


FTR #796 Sterling Example: Another Visit with Daniel Hopsicker

Recently, soon-to-be-former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has garnered much media attention for his “off the rails” comments about African-Americans and former NBA great Magic Johnson, in particular. What has NOT garnered much attention at all is his background. An associate of mob straw man Allen Glick and his buddy, the late Al Davis of Oakland Raiders fame, Sterling’s rise in the real estate business suggests that there is more to the story than meets the eye.One of the aspects of Sterling’s career that has received little scrutiny is his curious behavior with regard to a non-existent project for the homeless and the apparently non-existent “assistance” to that project provided by Ramy El-Batrawi. Batrawi was a long-time associate of arms dealer and money-man Adnan Khashoggi, a major player in the shadowy world of intelligence community covert operations, gun-running and dope trafficking. Khashoggi has been a major financier of the “controlled demolition of the World Trade Center” disinformation operation, crafted by some of the 9/11 conspirators to cover-up their attacks.
