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.
