Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, Pravy Sektor and the SBU (Ukrainian Intelligence)

Pravy Sektor associate Valentyn Nalyvaichenko (right) had been the head of the SBU (Ukrainian intelligence service) since the Maidan Coup, up until his ouster in June of 2015. Not surprisingly, he had operated the organization along the lines of the OUN/B. Previously, he had served in that same capacity under Viktor Yuschenko, seeing the outfit as a vehicle for rewriting Ukraine’s history in accordance with the historical revisionism favored by the OUN/B.


New Book about Stephan Bandera Tells It Like It Is

A new book was just pub­lished exam­in­ing the life of Stepan Ban­dera, the Ukrainian fascist and Third Reich ally whose political heirs ascended to power in Ukraine through the Maidan coup. We have repeatedly made the point that the dimensions of official lying in the West were of truly Orwellian proportions–documented World War II history was being dismissed as “Russian propaganda” or “Kremlin propaganda.” ” . . . But thanks to Grze­gorz Rossolinski-Liebe’s Stepan Ban­dera: The Life and After­life of a Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ist, it now seems clear: those ter­ri­ble Rus­sians were right.” All of the contents of this website as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of videotaped lectures are available on a 32GB flash drive.

FTR #860 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 7 (All’s Well That’s Orwell, Part 3)

In a recent appearance before a Jewish audience (while drumming up support for the Iran nuclear deal), President Obama noted that Iran was a country that denied the Holocaust. Obama’s remarks were deeply ironic in light of the fact that the OUN/B redux government in power in Ukraine (with American military, political and economic support) continues to manifest a profound Holocaust revisionism. Political and military allies of the Third Reich, the OUN/B under Stephan Bandera and Jaroslav Stetsko implemented ethnic cleansing massacres against Jews, Poles, Russians Roma and other “political undesirables” during the Second World War. Nurtured within elements of Western intelligence and incorporated into the Republican Party after World War II, the OUN/B were projected back into Ukraine following the breakup of the U.S.S.R. Implementing a law criminalizing criticism of the OUN/B and its military wing the UPA, the Ukrainian regime is institutionalizing a fundamental perversion of that region’s history during World War II. The Ukrainian perspective is being echoed in Western media and political pronouncements. Program Highlights Include: the Nazi Azov Battalion’s development of a youth wing; the whitewashing of the murderous career of Symon Petliura, a Ukrainian pogromist and antecedent of the OUN/B; the role of OUN/B operative Volodomyr Viatrovych in implementing Ukraine’s historical revisionism; continued cover-up of the facts concerning the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines flight MH-17; review of “Yuschenkoism”–Viktor Yuschenko’s revisionist policies that set the stage for Poroshenko’s perpetuation of those policies; review of Ukrainian presidents Yuschenko and Poroshenko honoring the OUN/B executioners at Babi Yar; Symon Petlyura’s abortive alliance with Vladimir Jabotinsky, which has been used to deny Petliura’s anti-Semitism.


More about “The Earth Island Boogie”: Grey Wolves, National Action Party Supporting Uighurs

The Pan-Turkist and fascist National Action Party and its youth wing, the Grey Wolves (also “Gray Wolves”) are back in the news. Terrorizing Chinese and other Asian interests in Turkey, they are overtly supporting the Uighurs, the Muslim separatist group that appears to be a primary element in a destabilization effort against China and efforts to win “independence” for energy-rich Xinjiang province.

FTR #854 The Underground Reich and the Obverse Oswald: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Returning once again to “L’Affaire Snowden,” we note the revealingly profound discontinuities in this event and the key characters involved. We also revisit some of the key features of what appears to have been an Underground Reich intelligence operation. Far from being “shocked, shocked” by the Snowden material, the German BND (successor organization to the Reinhard Gehlen spy outfit) HELPED the NSA spy on foreign leaders. The Snowden “op” also serves as a rationalization for Europe’s assault on American Big Tech and a push for censorship of the Internet. As the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal simultaneously experienced what were described as technical glitches, we note that the “Anonymous” hacker group (whoever they are) foreshadowed the event. Program Highlights Include: Electronic Frontier Foundation John Perry Barlow’s work as Dick Cheney’s campaign manager; the EFF’s links to Snowden and the hacker encharged with securing Glenn Greenwald’s computer; the EFF’s work shilling for Big Tobacco; Glenn Greenwald’s work shilling for Big Tobacco; allegations that the Snowden leak compromised American and British spies to Russian and Chinese intelligence; the fact that one of the people with “root access” to the OPM data base was in Argentina (an epicenter of the Underground Reich).


Ebola: The German/American/Biological Warfare Connection

Although we have no hard information of a possible biological warfare link to the outbreak, an article from former Naval Intelligence officer Wayne Madsen is worth considering in that regard. In 2009, Germany was pondering the shipment of deadly pathogens, including Ebola virus to Ft. Detrick in Maryland. They voiced concern about the possibility that the samples might be weaponized, possibly giving themselves plausible deniability in the event that they were used for biological war purposes.

Mark Simon and the Hong Kong Protests

Mark Simon, an American with an intelligence background, is a player in the unfolding events in Hong Kong. Having interned with CIA and then worked for the Navy, Mark Simon denies that he is an intelligence officer, a charge leveled by China.

The CIA and . . . . Jackson Pollock??!

It is interesting to ponder the legacy of the Cold War as it applies to contemporary American culture and society. The degree of national security involvement with the essence and foundation of our society would shock many. Involved with academia, journalism, domestic electoral politics, as well as national diplomatic and military policy, the intelligence community exerts far more influence over our “free” society than many believe. In an article for the Independent [UK], Frances Stonor Saunders notes CIA support for abstract expressionist art and its primary exponents, including Jackson Pollock. How many other elements of our “free” society are actually being determined by the denizens of Langley and/or some other element of “alphabet soup?”


FTR #800 Meet the New Boss(es), Same as the Old Boss(es): Update on Ukraine

Continuing our ongoing coverage of the Ukrainian crisis, the program begins with an examination of the continuity of the OUN/B Third Reich collaborationist milieu through the decades. The “new” President Petro Poroshenko is advised by a team of political vetarns, including Roman Zvarych (“Svarych”), the personal secretary to OUN/B head Jaroslav Stetsko and a right-hand man to his widow and successor Slava Stetsko. Svarych served as Minister of Justice in both Tymnoshenko governments, as well as under Viktor Yuschenko. The Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists, co-founded by Slava Stetsko and Zvarych, has served as a central element in Ukrainian political coalitions, embodying the continuity of the OUN/B throughout the short history of post-Soviet Ukraine. In addition to retaining Swoboda’s Andriy Parubiy as Ukraine’s top defense official, Poroshenko is implementing the EU austerity doctrine, continuing the brutal civil war and opening up Ukraine to German investment. The U.S. and EU are endorsing fracking and fossil fuel production to sabotage the Russian economy and President Putin’s government.


The Fires This Time

Robert Parry notes the OUN/B heritage of Swoboda and Pravy Sektor in the current Ukrainian government, correlating that Nazi heritage with the lethal firebombing of pro-Russian demonstrators in the Black Sea port city of Odessa. Apparently perpetrated by a street-fighting contingent acting in accordance with the tactical principles of both Pravy Sektor (at right) and Swoboda, the firebombing is reminiscent of the massacre of residents of the city of Huta Pienacka in Ukraine by the Galician Division (14th Waffen SS.) In addition, Parry notes an OUN/B involvement with the Reagan administration’s U.S. Information Agency and Radio Liberty, coloring broadcasts in the 1980’s in a pro-Nazi fashion.
