“They Are All Bound on The Wheel . . . .” Reflections on The Death of George Floyd and Its Aftermath

My feel­ings about the George Floyd killing and its after­math are best expressed in a poem I have read on a num­ber of pro­grams. In FTR #46, I detailed the assas­si­na­tion of Mar­tin Luther King. The research in FTR #46, in turn, updat­ed infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed on the 17th anniver­sary of the assas­si­na­tion of Dr. King more than a decade ear­li­er. Two years ago, when doing ten hours of pro­gram­ming about Dr. King’s mur­der on the 50th anniver­sary of that event, I was struck by the utter pas­siv­i­ty and silence, not just on the part of the main­stream media, but on the part of the African-Amer­i­can com­mu­ni­ty, as well as the so-called “pro­gres­sive sec­tor.” How can peo­ple who have acqui­esced in the cold-blood­ed assas­si­na­tion of Amer­i­ca’s most promi­nent civ­il rights leader at the hands of pow­er­ful ele­ments of gov­ern­ment man­i­fest sur­prise or out­rage at Floy­d’s death? Per­haps it is because “They are all bound on the wheel . . . .”


FTR #759 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 6: More About the Deep Fifth Column

Both the actions of Eddie the Friend­ly Spook and those of the GOP Con­gres­sion­al fac­tion have caused the world to view the U.S. in “fear and dis­may.” This pro­gram exam­ines intel­li­gence leaks dur­ing World War II that might have proved extreme­ly dam­ag­ing to the Unit­ed States. High­light­ing ele­ments of com­mon­al­i­ty between Snow­den and the GOP “shut­down” pro­po­nents, the broad­cast ana­lyzes both as ele­ments of an Under­ground Reich fifth col­umn.


Horror Show in the Balkans

The NATO-installed regime of Hasim Thaci man­i­fests per­va­sive polit­i­cal and social crim­i­nal­i­ty. Thaci is alleged to main­tain a harem of more than 50 sex slaves, held in bondage by his body­guards and report­ed­ly offer­ing their favors to KFOR and EULEX per­son­nel. Suc­ces­sors to the 21st Waf­fen SS (“Skan­der­beg”) Divi­sion and oth­er fas­cist fight­ing for­ma­tions from World War II, the Koso­vo Lib­er­a­tion Army has turned that for­mer Ser­bian province into lit­tle more than a Ger­man colony. Much of the inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty con­tin­ues to view Koso­vo as a crim­i­nal enti­ty oper­at­ing out­side the enve­lope of inter­na­tion­al law.


FTR #691 The Confederate Secret Service and the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

Not a “lone nut,” John Wilkes Booth was act­ing as a Con­fed­er­ate agent when he killed Lin­coln. Booth was part of a vast under­ground appa­ra­tus assem­bled for the oper­a­tion, that includ­ed “the Gray Ghost”, Colonel John Mos­by and two rel­a­tives of Gen­er­al Robert E. Lee.
