FTR #920 The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 3: The Underground Reich Emerges Into Plain View

QUICK: How many Pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates can you name who kept a book of Adolf Hitler’s speech­es by their bed­side? Don­ald Trump does. For many years, what Mr. Emory terms “The Under­ground Reich” has been a fun­da­men­tal point of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis in these broad­casts and posts. In the third pro­gram ana­lyz­ing the Don­ald Trump cam­paign, we exam­ine the “Trumpenkampfver­bande,” its polit­i­cal antecedents and adher­ents. Exem­pli­fy­ing, and net­work­ing with, gen­er­a­tions of fas­cists and fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions, the Trumpenkampfver­bande embod­ies the emer­gence of the Under­ground Reich into plain view. A sig­na­ture ele­ment of Trump’s cam­paign is his resus­ci­ta­tion of the “Amer­i­ca First” slo­gan and con­cept, a man­i­fes­ta­tion both of his thin­ly-veiled appeal to Nazi and white suprema­cist ele­ments and his will­ing­ness to cede dom­i­nance over world affairs to a Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed “third pow­er bloc.” The Amer­i­ca First con­cept mobi­lizes pow­er­ful feel­ings among those feel­ing over­whelmed and left behind by polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic devel­op­ments glob­al­ly and in the Unit­ed States. We note that the “orig­i­nal” Amer­i­ca First was financed by Nazi Ger­many. Trump’s invo­ca­tion of Amer­i­ca First exem­pli­fies the nature of his polit­i­cal her­itage and alle­giances. One of his top advis­ers Joseph E. Schmitz, “obsessed with all things Ger­man” and, accord­ing to asso­ciates, some­one who “fired the Jews” (from the Pen­ta­gon) and man­i­fest­ed Holo­caust denial. This is not atyp­i­cal of “Team Trump.” One of the most impor­tant fig­ures in main­stream­ing “alt right” (i.e. Nazi, white nation­al­ist and anti-Semit­ic) atti­tudes has been Breitbart’s Steve Ban­non, now essen­tial­ly run­ning the Trump cam­paign. Trump and his cam­paign have a habit of re-tweet­ing infor­ma­tion from “alt right” web­sites and mes­sage boards. Of pri­ma­ry sig­nif­i­cance in ana­lyz­ing Trump con­cerns the main finan­cial backer of his real estate projects–Deutsche Bank. In addi­tion to the fact that this places a poten­tial Pres­i­dent in the posi­tion of owing upwards of $100 mil­lion to an insti­tu­tion that has open­ly defied U.S. reg­u­la­to­ry posi­tions, Deutsche Bank is a pri­ma­ry ele­ment of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, about which we speak so often. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Analy­sis of the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Trump’s father was in the Ku Klux Klan; review of Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with for­mer Axis spy Nor­man Vin­cent Peale; review of Trump’s counsel–Senator Joe McCarthy aide Roy Cohn; Trump’s addi­tion­al finan­cial back­ing from George Soros, who got his start in busi­ness “Aryaniz­ing” Jew­ish prop­er­ty dur­ing the Holo­caust; Trump’s tweet­ing of a cam­paign ad fea­tur­ing Waf­fen SS-clad World War II re-enac­tors; The enthu­si­as­tic sup­poprt Trump has received from David Duke.


FTR #867 Because They Can, Part 3: Fireside Rant about Technocratic Fascism as “Cyber-Crowleyism”

Con­tin­u­ing dis­cus­sion from FTR #866, we devel­op var­i­ous man­i­fes­ta­tions of lib­er­tar­i­an, tech­no­crat­ic fas­cism. Cel­e­brat­ed by Sil­i­con Val­ley exec­u­tives and ele­vat­ed to pow­er (in part), by EBay chief Pierre Omid­yar, Naren­dra Mod­i’s Hin­du nationalist/fascist gov­ern­ment has been sup­press­ing free speech, laud­ing Mahat­ma Gand­hi’s killer as a patri­ot, mur­der­ing crit­ics and turn­ing a blind eye to lethal mob vio­lence direct­ed against Mus­lims for alleged­ly slaugh­ter­ing cows. Cap­i­tal­iz­ing on Snow­den’s activ­i­ties, the very finan­cial insti­tu­tions that pre­cip­i­tat­ed the 2008 finan­cial col­lapse are employ­ing a secure, end-to-end encryp­tion mes­sag­ing sys­tem that will enable them to evade reg­u­la­to­ry scruti­ny. The lais­sez-faire, cor­po­ratist eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy embraced by Modi is at one with the val­ues of Edward Snow­den, Julian Assange, the Tea Par­ty and the GOP as a whole, the advo­cates of Bit­coin, and the pirates of Wall Street. Pro­gram High­lights Include: a com­par­i­son of the social philoso­phies of Assange and Snow­den with those of the SS; review of Mod­i’s move to under­mine Indi­a’s child labor laws; review of the fright­en­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties of “smart con­tracts;” review of Bit­coin as “cyber-off­shoring.”


Keeping Those “Abs” Toned

A recent Holo­caust deniers’ con­fer­ence in Lon­don featured–among oth­er guests–one Lady Michele Renouf, whose late for­mer hus­band worked with Her­mann Abs, Nazi Ger­many’s most impor­tant banker before, dur­ing and after World War II. Her mar­riage to an Abs asso­ciate may well have been the deci­sive expe­ri­ence in steer­ing her toward her present call­ing as a Holo­caust-deny­ing asso­ciate of David Irv­ing. Abs was a key asso­ciate of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, the eco­nom­ic com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground. Have post­war Nazi monies influ­enced the polit­i­cal vec­tor of Ms. Renouf?

FTR #823 Caution, Banksters at Work, Part 2 (Still More Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

Updat­ing FTR #‘s 772 and 792, the broad­cast high­lights a recent social psy­chol­o­gy exper­i­ment that indi­cat­ed a strong incli­na­tion toward dis­hon­est, crim­i­nal behav­ior on the part of bank­ing pro­fes­sion­als. After not­ing Deutsche Bank’s pre­car­i­ous posi­tion, the pro­gram notes two oth­er sus­pi­cious deaths. Deutsche Bank’s Calogero Gam­bi­no alleged­ly took his own life, fol­low­ing the alleged sui­cide of anoth­er Deutsche banker–William Broeksmit. Cit­i­group’s Shawn Miller sup­pos­ed­ly slit his own throat, this after plac­ing some 911 calls com­plain­ing about being fol­lowed. The Sen­ate bank­ing com­mit­tee recent­ly con­clud­ed an inves­ti­ga­tion of the bank­ing indus­try’s involve­ment in the com­modi­ties’ mar­kets, some­thing that offers tremen­dous oppor­tu­ni­ty for ille­gal spec­u­la­tion, as well as leav­ing banks with poten­tial­ly cat­a­stroph­ic expo­sure to fluc­tu­a­tion in those mar­kets. In Octo­ber, a dra­mat­ic fluc­tu­a­tion in the mar­ket for U.S. Trea­sury bills has raised omi­nous ques­tions con­cern­ing the sta­bil­i­ty of this glob­al finan­cial safe haven. The prob­a­bil­i­ty of such an event hap­pen­ing was once every 1.6 bil­lion years!


German Corporations Buying Major U.S. Businesses

Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions are ramp­ing up pur­chas­es of key Amer­i­can com­pa­nies. Always bear in mind the con­trol of cor­po­rate Ger­many by the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, the eco­nom­ic com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground. Fun­da­men­tal here, as well, is the work of Dorothy Thomp­son, who (writ­ing of the Third Reich’s plans for glob­al dom­i­na­tion in 1940), relat­ed that the mas­ters of Ger­man indus­try, finance and pol­i­tics saw eco­nom­ic con­trol lead­ing auto­mat­i­cal­ly to polit­i­cal con­trol.

FTR #792 Caution: Banksters at Work (More Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

In FTR #772, we looked at a num­ber of sus­pi­cious deaths in and around the finan­cial indus­try, this as a num­ber of legal inves­ti­ga­tions into the mis­deeds of the “banksters” were pro­ceed­ing. This pro­gram updates that extra­or­di­nary mor­tal­i­ty rate. One of the sur­re­al, almost hal­lu­ci­na­to­ry finan­cial instru­ments that were at the cen­ter of the 2008 finan­cial col­lapse were CDO’s–collateralized debt oblig­a­tions. We won­der if the high mor­tal­i­ty rate, the ongo­ing cap­i­tal trou­bles and legal inves­ti­ga­tions plagu­ing the firms may be relat­ed to these deaths. Are we look­ing at col­lat­er­al­ized “death” oblig­a­tions? We note that JP Mor­gan Chase has expe­ri­enced a par­tic­u­lar­ly high mor­tal­i­ty rate.


More Collateralized “Death” Obligations

“Par­ticipo” alerts us to an arti­cle from The New York Post updat­ing the mor­tal­i­ty rate in the finan­cial indus­try. These deaths are occur­ring as numer­ous inves­ti­ga­tions are under­way into var­i­ous kinds of malfea­sance in the glob­al finan­cial sec­tor, manip­u­la­tion of the for­eign exchange rate, in par­tic­u­lar.


FTR #772 Body Count II: (Collateralized “Death” Obligations)

One of the sur­re­al, almost hal­lu­ci­na­to­ry finan­cial instru­ments that were at the cen­ter of the 2008 finan­cial col­lapse were CDO’s–collateralized debt oblig­a­tions. As a num­ber of legal inves­ti­ga­tions into mis­chief appar­ent­ly com­mit­ted by major finan­cial insti­tu­tions on a num­ber of fronts have gained momen­tum, there has been a rash of sui­cides linked to the busi­ness­es under inves­ti­ga­tion. In addi­tion, a Wall Street Jour­nal reporter dis­ap­peared and an Argen­tine bank repository–supposedly fireproof–burned down. Are we look­ing at col­lat­er­al­ized “death” oblig­a­tions?


Collateralized “Death” Obligations?

Both JP Mor­gan Chase and Deutsche Bank are, or have been the focal points of ongo­ing inves­ti­ga­tions into their oper­a­tions. Now, two execs, one for­mer and one active, have alleged­ly com­mit­ted sui­cide. The mor­tal­i­ty rate among Lon­don based bank­ing exec­u­tives has been par­tic­u­lar­ly high in recent years. We won­der if the high mor­tal­i­ty rate, the ongo­ing cap­i­tal trou­bles and legal inves­ti­ga­tions plagu­ing the firms may be relat­ed to these deaths. Are we look­ing at col­lat­er­al­ized “death” oblig­a­tions?


Deutsche Bank and the Financial Meltdown

It is impor­tant to under­stand that Ger­man banks are any­thing but blame­less in the Euro­pean finan­cial cri­sis. Deutsche Bank car­ried a large amount of bad debt on its books and lied about it in order to fool investors. In 2007, the Fed­er­al Reserve had to help bailout Deutsche Bank. The U.S. sued Deutsche Bank over its manip­u­la­tion of the Amer­i­can mort­gage mar­ket.
