FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of sev­er­al inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da about his impor­tant new book “The Hitler Lega­cy,” this pro­gram high­lights the evo­lu­tion of ele­ments which fig­ure into the devel­op­ment of the post-war Nazi under­ground. At the end of the First World War, the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion in Rus­sia and abortive Marx­ist upris­ings in Ger­many and else­where in Europe infused the pow­er elite in the U.S. with a para­noid ide­o­log­i­cal ter­ror of a glob­al “Jew­ish-Marx­ist” con­spir­a­cy. Com­bined with fear of Catholic and Jew­ish immi­grants and their effect on Amer­i­can soci­ety, this ide­o­log­i­cal para­noia fused with a social Dar­win­ism that found its expres­sion in eugenics–a pseu­do-intel­lec­tu­al doc­trine that sought the pro­mo­tion of “desir­able” social and eth­nic types and the sup­pres­sion and/or elim­i­na­tion of “infe­ri­or” racial types. See­ing Ger­many as the point ele­ment in the strug­gle against world Marx­ism, indi­vid­u­als and polit­i­cal par­ties sought to ally with Ger­man fas­cists to bring fas­cism to the U.S. This fas­cist Fifth Col­umn includ­ed polit­i­cal groups rang­ing from the Ku Klux Klan to the Sil­ver Shirts of William Dud­ley Pel­ley, as well as the pro­to­typ­i­cal right-wing talk show host Father Charles Cough­lin, “the Radio Priest.” Cough­lin’s efforts were sub­si­dized by Third Reich intel­li­gence. Financed by financiers and indus­tri­al­ists who sup­port­ed fas­cism, this Fifth Col­umn attempt­ed to kill and/or over­throw FDR on sev­er­al occa­sions. In the Mid­dle East, the con­cept of glob­al jihad was devel­oped by Ger­man archael­o­gist Max von Oppen­heim dur­ing the First World War. Envi­sion­ing the world’s Mus­lims as proxy war­riors against the Entente Pow­ers of Britain, France and Rus­sia, von Oppen­heim cre­at­ed the tem­plate for con­tem­po­rary Islam­ic fas­cism and jihadism. Fol­low­ing the divi­sion of the for­mer Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began man­i­fest­ing belief in an inter­na­tion­al glob­al con­spir­a­cy involv­ing Jews and the Euro­pean colo­nial pow­ers that res­onat­ed with the Amer­i­can pow­er elite’s ido­l­og­i­cal anx­i­eties.


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 #791 They May Not Know Art, but They Know What They Like

Explor­ing past and present, this pro­gram exam­ines a detailed, schol­ar­ly work­ing hypoth­e­sis by authors Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams con­cern­ing the pos­si­ble escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the oper­a­tion facil­i­tat­ing Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­o­gy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion. The ‘dis­cov­ery” of a huge cache of Nazi-loot­ed art in Munich in late 2013 is exam­ined against the back­ground of this alleged quid pro quo.


Rare, Mainstream Press Mention of U.S. Industrial Links to the Third Reich

It is com­par­a­tive­ly rare to see arti­cles in the main­stream press men­tion­ing the pro­found sup­port for Nazi Ger­many among Amer­i­can indus­tri­al­ists, financiers and polit­i­cal elite. A rare instance is a recent Dai­ly Mail arti­cle from the UK. In addi­tion to dis­cussing the links between the Thyssen indus­tri­al empire and the Bush fam­i­ly, the broad­cast under­scores I.G. Far­ben’s deci­sive role in the Ger­man war econ­o­my and its links to the largest Amer­i­can cor­po­ra­tions.


Democrat Tells the Truth about the GOP, then Recants

Hit­ting the nail on the head, Demo­c­rat John Bur­ton labeled the GOP as pur­vey­ors of the Big Lie, com­par­ing them with Nazi pro­pa­gan­da min­is­ter Joseph Goebbels. Not only is this an apt com­par­i­son, but the Repub­li­can Par­ty has, for decades, been inex­tri­ca­bly linked with Third Reich alum­ni and the Under­ground Reich. Bur­ton’s wilt­ing under fire is only too typ­i­cal of the unwill­ing­ness of Amer­i­can soci­ety to look at the stark, ugly truths about this coun­try.


German Bank Offers “Islam Compliant” Investment in German Core Corporations

Taint­ed Ger­man bank offers “Islam com­pli­ant” invest­ing in Ger­man core cor­po­ra­tions, includ­ing firms linked to Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.


McGraw Family (Owners of S & P) are Longtime Intimates of the Bush Family

McGraw fam­i­ly long­time Bush allies. Watch S & P, owned by McGraw fam­i­ly, do what ben­e­fits GOP, Bush Fam­i­ly, Under­ground Reich. S & P’s 2011 down­grad­ing of U.S. debt rat­ing was open pol­i­tick­ing.


Truth in Advertising: GOP Candidate Dresses in Waffen SS Uniform

Com­ment: GOP Con­gres­sion­al can­di­date Rich Iott of Ohio has been fly­ing col­ors that demon­strate the true nature of the Repub­li­can par­ty. A favorite of the Tea Par­ties, Iott for years par­tic­i­pat­ed in “reen­act­ments” of bat­tles of the Fifth Waf­fen SS divi­sion (Viking). (Iott is sec­ond from right in this pho­to.) As not­ed in numer­ous broad­casts, […]


FTR #716 Interview (#6) with Russ Baker, Author of “Family of Secrets”

Decades of Bush fam­i­ly intrigue cul­mi­nates in Dubya’s eight year deba­cle; dis­as­ters over­tak­ing the US are the inevitable out­growth of Bush’s cor­po­ratist phi­los­o­phy and cor­rupt admin­is­tra­tive prac­tice.


FTR #714 Interview (#4) with Russ Baker, Author of “Family of Secrets”

Nixon’s removal from White House was an intel­li­gence coup, not a “reaf­fir­ma­tion of democ­ra­cy”; Pop­py Bush cen­tral­ly involved in his removal; Nixon angered some of the same inter­ests as JFK and was removed by the same team.
