FTR #874 Update on Fascism and the New Age

In this program, we continue our intermittent examination of areas of overlap between the New Age and fascism. In FTR #873, we examined how the Atlantis myth has fed directly into Nazi occultism and “polygenesis,” a key feature of scientific racism. Inextricably linked with the notion of space aliens having spawned the “Aryan race,” the concept of Atlantis has spawned the enterprise of J.Z. Knight, aka “Ramtha.” Purporting to be the channeled spirit of a 35,000-year-old Atlantean/Lemurian warrior, Ramtha/Knight have disseminated a racist, anti-Semitic philosophy. Next, we turn to examination of a major constellation in the New Age firmament–the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Based in Petaluma, California, the institute was co-founded by SS officer, Third Reich and NASA rocket scientist and Project Paperclip import Werner von Braun. Another of the co-founders is former EXXON executive Paul Temple, who also is deeply involved with Abraham Vereide’s Fellowship Foundation. In FTR #697, we examined the strong connections between Vereide’s group, the Third Reich and post-war Underground Reich-connected elements. After examining Josef F. Blumrich, a key NASA official and alumnus of the Third Reich’s aerospace industry who advocates contact between the ancients and UFOs/space aliens, we conclude with a re-broadcast of FTR #170, detailing “The Nine.” Overlapping many aspects of the New Age, The Nine purport to be the ancient gods of Egypt, extraterrestrials and many other manifestations of the New Age. Apparently evolved from elements of the intelligence community’s mind control programs, The Nine also reinforce the concept of polygenesis.


FTR #873 The New Age, Fascism and the Atlantis Myth

The gulf between Nazism and the so-called New Age might seem to be so wide as to be unbridgeable. Sadly, that is not the case.

At the core of Nazi belief was occultism, drawing on Pan-Germanic mythology deriving from the Thule Society, ariosophy, elements of Hindu religious doctrine and more commonly recognizable belief systems such as astrology. The SS Ahnenerbe drew together many of these threads and anointed them with a mantle of respectability. As a result, New Age sects and religion have frequently dovetailed with elements of Nazi and fascist philosophy.

We introduce the theme of the program with discussion of some huge works of art in Kazakhstan. Note that an analyst referred dismissively to the notion that these were built by ancient astronauts linked to Hitler, Atlantis, the Hyperboreans, Lemuria and/or any number of common focal points of Nazi occultism. One of the principle features of the “Nazi/Atlantis/New Age synthesis” is a fundamentally racist concept called “polygenesis.” Inherent in the contention that parts of the human species originated from outer space, Atlantis, etc., polygenesis is central to the “scientific racism” propagated by eugenicists and their Nazi pupils. Among the edifices sited by occult polygenesis advocates is Tiwanaku in Bolivia, seen by SS officer Edmund Kiss as proof of the settlement of Latin America by “Aryans” from Atlantis, Hyperborea, Lemuria etc.

The notion of an ancient, Aryan-controlled past brought low by “sub-humans,” (generally grouped around “Da Joos”) recalls a common feature of fascism–a preoccupation with a long-gone, idealized past. The program highlights the political and religious philosophy of “esoteric Nazism,” a subject we will explore in our next program as well. One of the prime exponents of “esoteric Nazism” was Miguel Serrano, a Chilean Nazi who was also discussed in our conversations with Peter Levenda.

Fusing traditional Nazi anti-Semitism with various occult strains, Serrano posited that the Nazis and Hitler were the manifestation of an otherworldly and superior civilization which would ultimately triumph after an apocalyptic, catastrophic war involving UFOs, Aryans from Antarctica, “Hyperborea” etc. The Nazi/New Age/Atlantis theory pre-supposes a mythic, idealized past and exemplifies the notion of Nazism as a cult–a form of weaponized religion.


FTR #863 9/11, The Muslim Brotherhood and the Earth Island Boogie, Part 2

Stretching from the Straits of Gibraltar, all across Europe, most of the Middle East, Eurasia, Russia, China and India, that stretch of land known as the “Earth Island”: comprises most of the world’s land mass; contains most of the world’s population and most of the world’s natural resources (including oil and natural gas.) Geopoliticians have long seen controlling that land mass as the key to world domination. In this broadcast, we examine what might be termed political strange bedfellows grouped together against Russia and China and advancing an apparent Underground Reich and corporatist agenda in parts of Russia and China. In addition to the Tibetan Buddhist milieu of the Dalai Lama, Uighur Muslims associated with Al Qaeda and the Pan-Turkist movement are ranked together under the banner of the UNPO and the House of Habsburg. Active in Ukraine, part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for centuries, the Habsburgs appear to be a coordinating executive element mobilizing the diverse ethnic groups working against Russia and China. Program Highlights Include: OUN/B operative Paula Dobriansky’s control of the Tibet Desk at the State Department; Uighur links to Al Qaeda and other Muslim Brotherhood offshoots; review of the Dalai Lama’s historical relationships with the SS and the CIA; review of Peter Levenda’s concept of “weaponized religion;” support for the Uighurs by the Pan-Turkist and fascist National Action Party; Erkin Altepkin’s alliances with the Habsburg milieu, the Dalai Lama and elements of Western intelligence; the growing presence of ISIS-affiliated fighters from Chechnya in the Ukrainian conflict.


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 #843 Interview (#6) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This sixth in a projected series of nine interviews with Peter Levenda, continues analysis of what Mr. Emory views as one of the most important books ever written. Resuming a point of discussion from FTR #842, we further develop the nature of Tibetan Buddhism, certain similarities with Nazi philosophy and occult beliefs, and how this played into the development of the Dalai Lama’s operational links to some truly “interesting” elements. Advancing analysis of the “weaponization of religion” and elements of Buddhism, in particular, Peter highlights the little-known but profound fascist influence on, and support from, the Zen Buddhist community. Pursuant to the discussion of “weaponized religion,” Peter sets forth his thesis that Nazism was a form of cult or spiritual belief. As we have seen, Nazi philosophy resonated effectively with some aspects of “global jihadism,” Tibetan Buddhism and wartime practicioners of Zen Buddhism. Listeners should remember that elements of U.S. intelligence co-opted “weaponized religion” during the Cold war, including global jihadism and Tibetan Buddhism. Program highlights include: the “jihadist” nature of Tibetan Buddhism; the role of Zen luminaries D.T. Suzuki and Karlfried Graf Durckheim in developing the Zen-Bushido link; the roles of both men in popularizing Zen Buddhism in the post-World War II period.


FTR #842 Interview (#5) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This next installment of our discussions with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy” begins with discussion of individuals and organizations that comprised the postwar Nazi underground. Focused largely on the SS, these organizations were vehicles for the perpetuation of the Nazi struggle against the Allies (including the U.S. and Britain) at the same time as they interfaced with powerful elements of Western intelligence, who used them as Cold Warriors. Part of the Cold War strategy pursued by the U.S. was to resucitate (for a third time) the “global jihadist” strategy devised by Max von Oppenheim during the First World War. Seeking the “believing” Muslims as proxy warriors against the atheistic communists, powerful elements of CIA and the State Department enlisted the Muslim Brotherhood in this struggle. “Weaponized religion” was also used in Asia, where the Third Reich had already established a working relationship with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhists, with SS officers of primary significance in the Nazis’ dealings with “His Holiness.” Key points of discussion include: the career of Otto Ernst Remer; the remarkable career of Francois Genoud; the Dalai Lama’s SS associate Bruno Beger’s atrocities war crimes; the Dalai Lama’s SS tutor–Heinrich Harrer–and his work for elements of U.S. and Western intelligence after the war.


FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of several interviews with Peter Levenda about his important new book “The Hitler Legacy,” this program highlights the evolution of elements which figure into the development of the post-war Nazi underground. At the end of the First World War, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and abortive Marxist uprisings in Germany and elsewhere in Europe infused the power elite in the U.S. with a paranoid ideological terror of a global “Jewish-Marxist” conspiracy. Combined with fear of Catholic and Jewish immigrants and their effect on American society, this ideological paranoia fused with a social Darwinism that found its expression in eugenics–a pseudo-intellectual doctrine that sought the promotion of “desirable” social and ethnic types and the suppression and/or elimination of “inferior” racial types. Seeing Germany as the point element in the struggle against world Marxism, individuals and political parties sought to ally with German fascists to bring fascism to the U.S. This fascist Fifth Column included political groups ranging from the Ku Klux Klan to the Silver Shirts of William Dudley Pelley, as well as the prototypical right-wing talk show host Father Charles Coughlin, “the Radio Priest.” Coughlin’s efforts were subsidized by Third Reich intelligence. Financed by financiers and industrialists who supported fascism, this Fifth Column attempted to kill and/or overthrow FDR on several occasions. In the Middle East, the concept of global jihad was developed by German archaelogist Max von Oppenheim during the First World War. Envisioning the world’s Muslims as proxy warriors against the Entente Powers of Britain, France and Russia, von Oppenheim created the template for contemporary Islamic fascism and jihadism. Following the division of the former Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began manifesting belief in an international global conspiracy involving Jews and the European colonial powers that resonated with the American power elite’s idological anxieties.


FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Levenda has posted an article (excerpted from his recent book) that encapsulates significant elements of discussion presented by Mr. Emory and featured on this website. Noting Imperial Germany’s use of Islamic proxy warriors during the First World War and Nazi Germany’s incorporation of the same stratagem, Levenda notes that Nazi elements have continued to use Muslim proxy warfare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Underground Reich. Having incorporated many important elements of Nazi Germany’s national security establishment into its own after World War II, the United States has co-opted the tactic of proxy war. To its detriment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Underground Reich and its Islamist proxies have their own agendas. Those agendas feature the defeat of the United States as a centerpiece of long-term strategy. Concluding with an examination of recent American military involvement, the program notes that much of what we are doing actually benfits Germany and occurs in areas formerly belonging to the Ottoman Empire.


What Has General Wesley Clark Been Doing since His Retirement?

I.G. Farben’s Fischer-Tropsch process is experiencing an industrial renaissance. In Kosovo, former NATO commander General Wesley Clark is chairman of a company using it to produce synthetic fuel from Kosovo’s coal deposits. Coincidentally (?) the head of NATO peacekeeping forces in Kosovo was the son of Nazi war crminal and Third Reich finance ministry official Fritz Reinhardt.


Germany and the Fragmenting of the United Kingdom

So-called “progressive” elements within the EU are advancing the German agenda of working to fragment larger nations. In addition to the Greens, the European Free Alliance is moving to redraw the map of Europe, with a greatly expanded Germany. German NGO’s are supporting the secession of parts of the United Kingdom. Some of those same NGO’s have also been supportive of terrorist/Muslim Brotherhood elements during the so-called Arab Spring.
