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.


Austerity as a Vehicle for Breaking Up Nations

Over the years, we have cov­ered the Hapsburg/Thyssen UNPO and its cham­pi­oning of eth­nic minori­ties as a vehi­cle for break­ing up large nations into small­er, more pli­able states. Using the human suf­fer­ing and social dis­lo­ca­tion brought about by its “aus­ter­i­ty” pro­gram to frag­ment large nations, Ger­many is active­ly sup­port­ing the seces­sion of Cat­alo­nia from Spain and, in coop­er­a­tion its Aus­tri­an part­ner, the South Tyrol from Italy. Man­i­fest­ing what, for lack of a bet­ter term, might be called “eth­nic impe­ri­al­ism,” Ger­many is using far-right, neo-Nazi ele­ments as foot sol­diers to assist the ver­triebene groups in pro­mot­ing the seces­sion of Ger­man-speak­ing minori­ties in Poland and oth­er parts of East­ern Europe. Tar­get­ing Chi­na, Ger­many con­tin­ues its equiv­o­cal sup­port for indi­vid­u­als and eth­nic groups seek­ing to frag­ment that nation. As we have seen in past dis­cus­sion, the Unit­ed States is also tar­get­ed for Balka­niza­tion and sub­ver­sion.


German Neo-Nazis Embracing Third Reich’s “Green” Policies

Ger­man neo-Nazis going green. Third Reich had a sim­i­lar ori­en­ta­tion. Might the “eco-fas­cists” of the con­tem­po­rary Ger­man polit­i­cal scene be able to attract the young or naive to their polit­i­cal agen­da?


FTR #727 Whither China?

Nobel Peace Prize Win­ner Liu Xiaobo seeks return to Chi­na’s past; fore­go­ing most reforms of the past cen­tu­ry, Chi­na would sur­ren­der its posi­tion on the world stage; Liu doing the bid of Chi­na’s export­ing rival Ger­many.


Mongolian neo-Nazis? Yup!

Com­ment: Illus­trat­ing the diverse appeal of the Nation­al Social­ist phi­los­o­phy, Mon­go­lia is expe­ri­enc­ing an upsurge in neo-Nazi activ­i­ty, as a deriv­a­tive of anti-Chi­­nese sen­ti­ment. One can but won­der what links these ele­ments may have to the Dalai Lama’s fascist/Nazi asso­ciates and his­to­ry, as well as the use of Mus­lim-Broth­­er­­hood Uighur ele­ments to agi­tate for the […]


Convicted in China, U.S. Geologist Worked for Thyssen/“Peak Oil” Firm

Com­ment: The cov­er­age of Chi­na’s sen­tenc­ing of a U.S. Geol­o­gist to eight years in prison has not stressed the fact that Xue Feng worked for IHS, Inc–a firm spe­cial­iz­ing in analy­sis of the petro­le­um indus­try and the epi­cen­ter of the “Peak Oil” hypoth­e­sis. A sub­sidiary of Thyssen/Bornemisza indus­tries, IHS pro­vides analy­sis derived from data sub­mit­ted […]
