FTR #872 Interview with Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald about Zbigniew Brzezinski, Afghanistan’s Untold Story and the Ukraine Crisis

Revis­it­ing Eliz­a­beth Gould and Paul Fitzger­ald, co-authors of “Invis­i­ble His­to­ry: Afghanistan’s Untold Sto­ry,” we exam­ine Zbig­niew Brzezin­ski’s role in lur­ing the Sovi­et Union into the first Afghan war, and his promi­nent role as a geopo­lit­i­cal the­o­reti­cian behind the Ukrain­ian cri­sis. Seek­ing to give the USSR “their Viet­nam,” Brzezin­s­ki delib­er­ate­ly set the stage for the war that ulti­mate­ly led to the cre­ation of al-Qae­da. See­ing Ukraine as a key to con­trol of Eura­sia and the World Island or Earth Island, Cit­i­zen Brzezin­s­ki has been a lead­ing advo­cate for West­ern involve­ment in Ukraine. His son Ian has advo­cat­ed for loos­en­ing the chain of com­mand gov­ern­ing the use of nuclear weapons. Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of the cor­po­ratist eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; CIA offi­cer Gra­ham Fuller’s role in the pre­cip­i­ta­tion of the first Afghan war; dis­cus­sion of the Rock­e­feller milieu and its role in spawn­ing Brzezin­s­ki, as well as Hen­ry Kissinger; review of the role of ISIS-linked Chechen fight­ers in the fight­ing in Ukraine; review of the Amer­i­can vio­la­tion of a promise made to Gor­bachev not to expand NATO up to the Russ­ian bor­der; review of the Boston Marathon Bomb­ing, which appears to have been “blow­back” from an appar­ent covert oper­a­tion in the Cau­ca­sus.


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.


FTR #857 Update on Ukraine, the Earth Island Boogie and “Team Snowden”

Plac­ing the Ukraine cri­sis in a larg­er frame­work, this pro­gram ana­lyzes the event in the con­text of both the “Earth Island” (or “World Island” as it is some­times called) and the psy-op front­ed for by Edward Snow­den. Stretch­ing from the Straits of Gibral­tar, all across Europe, most of the Mid­dle East, Eura­sia, Rus­sia, Chi­na and India, that stretch of land: 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. The pop­u­la­tion that occu­pies the mid­dle of that stretch of geog­ra­phy is large­ly Mus­lim. Uti­liz­ing that Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion to con­trol the resources of the Earth Island is a strat­a­gem that has been in effect in the West for a cen­tu­ry. That strat­a­gem is appar­ent­ly behind the inclu­sion of Mus­lim Chechen fight­ers asso­ci­at­ed with the Islam­ic State in the Ukraine war, fight­ing under the admin­is­tra­tive com­mand of the Nazi Pravy Sek­tor group. After review­ing Zbig­niew Brzezin­ski’s use of Mus­lim proxy war­riors to draw the Sovi­ets into the first Afghan war and his view of Ukraine as essen­tial to bot­tling-up Rus­sia, the pro­gram notes that the U.S. is con­tin­u­ing to train Nazi com­bat­ants in Ukraine despite a pro­hi­bi­tion against doing so, because the Ukraine Min­istry of Inte­ri­or is vet­ting the trainees–THAT is the min­istry that formed and admin­is­ters the Nazi for­ma­tions. Much of the pro­gram notes the con­ti­nu­ity between Euro-fas­cists such as the Carl Lund­strom-financed Swe­den Democ­rats and the WikiLeaks/Snowden “op.” (Lund­strom also bankrolled the Pirate Bay web­site that host­ed Wik­iLeaks.) Pro­gram High­lights Include: state­ments by Ukrain­ian “vol­un­teer” bat­tal­ions that they want to attack Rus­sia; Glenn Green­wald finan­cial angel Pierre Omid­yar’s new part­ner­ship with the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy (a U.S. intel­li­gence proxy ele­ment); the push by the pun­ish­er bat­tal­ions for Poroshenko to declare war (some­thing he can’t do if the coun­try is to receive bad­ly-need­ed aid from the IMF); the links between Julian Assange assis­tant Joran Jer­mas (aka “Israel Shamir”) and the Nazi-inspired anti-Semit­ic MAUP group in Ukraine (at which David Duke teach­es); the arrest of a mem­ber of par­lia­ment from the Swe­den Democ­rats for appar­ent involve­ment in a bomb plot; review of the Swe­den Democ­rats’ financ­ing by Carl Lund­strom.


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.

Islamic State “Brothers” Now Fighting in Ukraine Under Pravy Sektor Administrative Command

Two dif­fer­ent types of fas­cist cadres are oper­at­ing in tan­dem in Ukraine–in addi­tion to the OUN/B heirs such as the Pravy Sek­tor for­ma­tions, Chechen fight­ers (almost cer­tain­ly allied with some ele­ment of Mus­lim Broth­er­hood) are now fight­ing along­side them and under the Pravy Sek­tor admin­is­tra­tive com­mand. The Chechen for­ma­tions are described as “broth­ers” of the Islam­ic State.

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 #830 Machiavelli 2.0: The Paris Attacks and the Muslim Brotherhood

In the wake of the ter­ror­ist inci­dents in Paris, dis­cus­sion has point­ed­ly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qae­da and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-com­mu­nist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Suc­cess­ful­ly scape­goat­ed by Euro­pean fas­cist groups like the Nation­al Front, ele­ments of the Broth­er­hood net­work with those same fas­cists, mutu­al­ly ben­e­fit­ting from cul­tur­al and polit­i­cal alien­ation gen­er­at­ed among their respec­tive sup­port­ers. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­o­gy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tin­ue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence in places like the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na’s Xin­jiang Province.


FTR #826 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian Style, Part 2

In FTR #824, we not­ed the deci­sive role played by the Ukrain­ian dias­po­ra in the events unfold­ing in East­ern Europe. Petro Poroshenko is imple­ment­ing a legal gam­bit to per­mit for­eign nation­als to assume cab­i­net posi­tions in his new gov­ern­ment. In par­tic­u­lar, Poroshenko expressed the desire to incor­po­rate cit­i­zens of the U.S., Geor­gia and Lithua­nia in Ukraine’s gov­ern­ment. In short order, Ukrainian/American State Depart­ment Offi­cer Natal­ie Jaresko, Lithuan­ian-born U.S. cit­i­zen Air­vas Abramovi­cius and Geor­gian Alek­san­dre Kvi­tashvili assumed the posts of finance min­is­ter, eco­nom­ic and devel­op­ment and trade min­is­ter and health min­is­ter respec­tive­ly. All three were edu­cat­ed in the Unit­ed States. Jaresko is a for­mer State Depart­ment offi­cer with close links to the US Agency for Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment. The appoint­ments come as Ukraine is close to default­ing on a $17bn IMF loan and mem­bers of Ukraine’s fas­cist vol­un­teer bat­tal­ions are lob­by­ing Con­gress for mil­i­tary aid. Poroshenko is also grant­i­ng cit­i­zen­ship to for­eign-born neo-Nazis, as well as insti­tut­ing an infor­ma­tion min­istry that crit­ics have com­pared to The Min­istry of Truth from George Orwell’s 1984.


FTR #824 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian-Style: The Evolution and Triumph of Ukrainian Fascism

Sup­ple­ment­ing pre­vi­ous work about the Ukrain­ian crisis–one which might spark a nuclear war–we note the deci­sive role of the OUN/B dias­po­ra in the coa­les­cence of fas­cism in that trou­bled nation. The U.S., Cana­da joined Ukraine as the only nations to vote against a U.N. Gen­er­al Assem­bly res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing the glo­ri­fi­ca­tion of Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors as “free­dom fight­ers,” prob­a­bly because of the large OUN/B con­tin­gents present in those coun­tries. (Ger­many and the oth­er EU nations abstained.) Most of the broad­cast access­es a very impor­tant arti­cle by George Elia­son detail­ing the his­tor­i­cal back­ground of the Ukrain­ian dias­po­ra, trac­ing the roots of Ukrain­ian, cen­tral and East­ern Euro­pean fas­cism to the 19th cen­tu­ry ultra-nation­al­ist excep­tion­al­ism fos­tered by the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­i­an Empire. Nur­tured by the Promethean League between the World Wars, Nazi Ger­many dur­ing the Sec­ond World War and the West­ern democ­ra­cies dur­ing the Cold War, that vir­u­lent, bloody ide­ol­o­gy tri­umphed after the breakup of the U.S.S.R. The pro­gram con­cludes by not­ing that Poroshenko has pro­posed bring­ing in cit­i­zens of the U.S., Lithua­nia and Geor­gia to staff the Ukrain­ian fed­er­al police.
