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 #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.


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.


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.


FTR #766 Bob Dylan vs. The Ustachi

Bob Dylan was charged with a hate crime after referencing the Croatian genocide against Serbs (and others) during World War II. A puppet state of the Third Reich during the Second World War, the Ustachi were heavily supported by the Vatican, which (along with elements of U.S. intelligence), aided their escape to the Americas after the war. Coalescing into part of the GOP’s ethnic heritage organization, the Ustachi were nurtured by assistance from Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and William Casey. Germany, the Vatican and the U.S. assisted the re-secession of Croatia and the resuscitation of a neo-Ustachi milieu.


Better Late than Never: Appellate Court Clears the Way for 9/11 Families to Sue Saudi Arabia

An appellate court has cleared the way for families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, focusing on, among other things, charities used to fund al-Qaeda. IF this investigation were to proceed as far as it might, Grover Norquist, Karl Rove and others in the GOP/Bush milieu would come under scrutiny, as would Francois Genoud, Youssef Nada and the Underground Reich. In addition, there is renewed focus on the redacted 28 pages of the Join Intelligence Committee Inquiry, which implicate Saudi Arabia.


Update on Snowden’s “Op” as Destabilization of Obama


A recent lawsuit against the NSA about its spying operations was brought by Larry Klayman, an extreme right-winger who called on the “Muslim” Obama to put down the “Quran” and come out of the White House with his hands up!

Judge Richard J. Leon, who ruled in favor of Klayman and his clients, is a loyal Bush family running dog, having helped to cover-up the Iran-Contra scandal and the October Surprise, in addition to having been involved with the destabilization of the Clinton administration over the non-existent Whitewater “crimes.”


A Very Good Reason NOT to Attack Syria: “Bandar Bush” at Epicenter of U.S. Syrian Operation

Among the reasons why we view the proposed Syrian military adventure with the most jaundiced of eyes concerns the fact that none other than Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia (shown at right) is the single most important coordinator of aid to the rebels. Nicknamed “Bandar Bush,” because he is so close to the Bush family, Bandar Bush was deeply involved in the push for the invasion of Iraq, which is a damned poor recommendation for taking military action in Syria. Bandar Bush been involved in some of the dirtiest operations of the last quarter century, including the Iran-Contra affair and 9/11.


Have Turkish Citizens Had Enough of Erdogan’s Taffy? (Viva Attaturk!)

Recent days have seen expanding popular protests in Turkey. Turned back by heavy-handed tactics by the country’s Fetullah Gulen-dominated police establishment, the demonstrations appear to embody a broader popular dissatisfaction with Erdogan’s Islamist government. Far from being “moderate,” Erdogan’s government has systematically stifled journalistic and political expression. UPDATED ON 6/6/2013.


Homeland Insecurity, Part 2: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrating Department of Homeland Security

The Muslim Brotherhood presence in U.S. national security institutions continues to grow. That Islamic fascist organization has developed a considerable presence in the Department of Homeland Security.
