In past posts, we’ve analyzed the “austerity” being imposed by Germany on the poorer countries of Europe against the background of the theories of Prussian military theoretician Carl von Clausewitz. A recent op-ed piece in the New York Times illustrates this analysis very clearly.
“Free Market” principles are manifesting behind fundamentalist religious cover. The Christian fundamentalist group The Family wields profound influence in Washington, behind an ideology that sees laissez-faire economics as “God’s will.” The Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamism also views free-market principles as “Divine” in origin.
The Tea Party folks may seem new to some. Other than the name, the organization is just a reworking of the fascisti of Mussolini, advocating the values of The Corporate State under the guise of populism. A Texas Tea Party leader has spilled the beans, explicitly articulating the classical fascism of the Tea Party.
In FTR #718, we examined the spectacularly popular Facebook/social media phenomenon. Behind all of the “glad-handing” surrounding the social network are some truly insidious forces. Much of the capitalization for the network comes from forces apparently linked to the Underground Reich and the intelligence community is all over Facebook and the rest of the high-tech world. It appears that, increasingly, anyone who does not wish to be part of this “virtual panopticon” and have their data appropriately mined will be viewed with suspicion and stigmatized professionally.
Listeners to the programs and users of this website owe a great deal to my late, dear friend Al Calame, who passed away from natural causes recently. Having run the Spitfire CD duplication service and the old Spitfirelist.com website, Al’s efforts were essential to realizing the goal of getting all of the 30+ years of Dave Emory programs and lectures available online.
Many listeners and readers may be inclined to dismiss the research of Edward R. Murrow protege Paul Manning on the postwar Bormann capital network. Evolved from the political economy of Nazi Germany and manifesting hierarchy deriving from that of the Third Reich, that organization controls the German corporate economy. A recent Bloomberg News story about the Quandt family details their relationship to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, setting forth information consistent with Manning’s research on corporate Germany.
We recall the tsunami of praise, Hosannas and Hallelujahs gushing forth from the world’s media and political punditry. Hailing the “Arab Spring” as the dawning of a new enlightenment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–fundamentally. We, on the other hand, were warning that this phenomenon was a Nazi operation, having been initiated by powerful corporate forces in the second administration of George W. Bush, it had its trigger with the WikiLeaks milieu–itself a far-right, Nazi-linked entity, as we demonstrated in FTR’s 732 and #745. (In addition to the documentation in the original WikiLeaks/Arab Spring series, see the article excerpted below.) Before delving into details, an excellent overview of recent events in Egypt was provided in an English-language blog by a citizen of that tortured country. The contradictions and deadly undercurrents of unfolding events were eloquently summed up by Mahmoud Salem in “Imagine.”
Although he has done so out of the limelight, George W. Bush has stayed true to form. Dubya made speeches in the Cayman Islands, instructing attendees at his talk on how to invest outside the United States. At least Bush is consistent. He worked against the best economic and political interests of the United States and continues to do so. One can but wonder what tips he may have gotten from Mitt Romney in this regard, or vice versa.
Working together, the GOP and Germany are deliberately pursuing policies to worsen the global economy, in the belief that the deteriorating economy will enable them to realize their political agendas. If they are successful, the result will be world fascism–a global corporate state.
Many commentators have observed the ominous parallels between our present fiscal crisis and the economic factors that led to the Great Depression and the rise of fascism, although few note the connections between consummately powerful political and economic forces and the sad, tragic events that resulted from their policies.
