Bayer Buys Monsanto

Bayer, a former member of the I.G. Farben cartel and a key element of the Bormann capital network has purchased Monsanto with a $66 billion cash bid, the largest corporate cash deal in history, with Sullivan & Cromwell having served as the firm’s adviser. In FTR #912, we noted the prominent entry of Bormann firms into the food industry and speculated about the possibility of introducing genetically-engineered binary pathogens into foodstuffs.


FTR #902 The Underground Reich, and the Deep Politics of the CIA “Privacy Advocates”: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

The mafia began as a resistance movement focused against Norse (Viking) and Saracen (Turkish/Muslim) invaders in 12th and 13 century Sicily. It might seem incredible to the casual observer that an organization that began so long ago could have developed and spread to the size, gravitas and scope of operations that it has. We also appreciate that when Mr. Emory uses the term “Underground Reich,” it might seem odd or incredible to many. Bringing up to date “L’Affaire Snowden,” we underscore the deep politics underlying the CIA’s broadcast psychological warfare fronts and their evolution into the milieu involving and surrounding Eddie the Friendly Spook. Much of the material in this program is reviewed from previous broadcasts, presented here to provide depth and understanding to how what has been presented as a “progressive,” “enlightened” phenomenon could be its opposite. “Team Snowden” manifests fascism and the Underground Reich at every turn. A major element of analysis is the development of the CIA’s focal point networks in the 1950’s, resulting in the formation of a CIA-controlled “government-within-the-government.” Is “Team Snowden” evolved from the focal point networks? Next the broadcast reviews the formation of the Broadcast Board of Governors, an umbrella organization enfolding the CIA’s radio propaganda and psychological fronts formed during the Cold War. “Team Snowden” is inextricably linked with the BBG–Snowden himself worked for CIA when he decided to infiltrate NSA and leak its secrets. In that context, we note that the Gehlen organization was at the foundation of the formation of the propaganda/psychological warfare fronts under the direction of the BBG. Much of the program underscores the Gehlen Org’s links to the Underground Reich, in order to reinforce listeners’ understanding of how this network dating to World War II could project its influence through the decades and into our contemporary historical period. ” . . . A network of former Nazi intelligence agents, the majority of whom were members of the SS, began working out of offices at Camp King side by side with army intelligence officers. . . . The Gehlen Organization was a murderous bunch, “free-wheeling” and out of control. . . The army became fed up with the Gehlen Organization, but there was no way out. Its operatives were professional double-crossers and liars–many were also alleged war criminals–and now they had the army over a barrel. . . .” Discussion concludes with “First Look” media czar Pierre Omidyar’s selection of Robert Lietzke to be an Omidyar fellow (Lietzke was one of Edward Snowden’s superiors when he was employed at Booz Allen Hamilton.) Program Highlights Include: Review of the Crusade For Freedom–the covert operation that precipitated the formation of the Nazi wing of the GOP; the CFF’s use of Radio Liberty as a front for employing fascists and laundering funds; the continuity in the Nazi chain of command from the Third Reich to the Gehlen organization when it went to work for the U.S.; the Gehlen organization’s strong links to the Bormann capital network; the strong overlap of the Thyssen industrial family, its business partners in the Bush family, Allen Dulles’ CIA and the Bormann network; the Gehlen group’s initial re-incarnation as the eyes and ears of Army intelligence.


Fahrvergnugen

Citing Germany’s privacy laws, Volkswagen has refused to turn over documents to U.S. prosecutors investigating the diesel emissions scandal. VW executives have long left cell phones outside of company meetings, fearing electronic eavesdropping, though they were “shocked, shocked” at “L’Affaire Snowden.” Originating as the “KDF-Wagen” in the Third Reich, VW is one of the German core corporations. It is deeply involved with the Bormann capital network.

Lucy Komisar vs. Wolfgang Schauble

At a recent address by German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble (given to the Council on Foreign Relations) Lucy Komisar braced the veteran politician over Germany’s hypocrisy concerning Greek debt. Schauble’s equivocation on the issue did not shake Lucy’s efforts to pin him down. In a linked article, do note the observations of Albrecht Ritschl, professor of economic history at the London School of Economics, who discussed Germany’s debt: ” . . . . “If we accept that Germany’s national product is somewhere to the tune of over 2 trillion euros, which is beyond 2.5 trillion U.S. dollars, we would be talking about a default and debt forgiveness of somewhere in the range of 10 trillion dollars. I would tend to think that this is probably unrivaled in 20th century history. . . . .” All of the contents of this website as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of videotaped lectures are available on a 32GB flash drive.

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 #841 Interview (#4) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Resuming our analysis of “The Hitler Legacy,” our next interview with Peter Levenda continues discussion of the rehabilitation of “jihadis as proxy warriors” by Germany in the run-up to, and during, the Second World War. Having assumed the position of Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini took advantage of resentment on the Arab street and mobilized it against the British and Jews. Beginning with pogroms during the 1920’s and 1930’s, Husseini’s activism blossomed into full-fledged participation in Nazi military compaigns, including recruiting Waffen SS units in Muslim territories. After discussing some similarities between Nazism and global jihadist ideology, Peter highlights the Grand Mufti’s post war work with the PLO and other Muslim political and military organizations. Joining the Grand Mufti were numeerous SS men and Nazi technical experts, there to continue their war against the Jews and to fight against Communism on behalf of Western intelligence agencies. In the Middle East, as in other countries where they were recruited as anti-Communist cadre, the Third Reich alumni pursued a Nazi agenda, spawning new Nazi political and military formations. Peter notes that they are not “neo”-Nazis, at all. Western intelligence helped foster postwar SS-assistance organizations such as Die Spinne and ODESSA, shepherded to a considerable extent by SS Colonel Otto Skorzeny.


More About the Fascist Element in the Zionist Movement: “The Iron Wall” Stratagem

In future programs, we will explore the fascist/Zionist connection at greater length. Something interesting to contemplate is this: has the U.S. replaced fascist Italy as the “Iron Wall” that Vladimir Jabotinsky sought to ensure the viability of Zionist development of Israel? Netanyahu’s blatant attemt at subverting not only Obama’s foreign policy but his administration, as well, is playing superbly into the theme of “a Jewish conspiracy controls America on behalf of Israel.” This theme resonates effectively with traditional anti-Semitic pronouncements such as “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.” In a future program, we will ruminate about the role of “Bormann Jews” in Israel, and the extent to which they MIGHT influence that country’s policies.

FTR #840 Interview (#3) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Continuing our discussion with Peter Levenda about his remarkable book “The Hitler Legacy,” the broadcast details what the author calls “The exit strategy.” Facing military defeat, the Third Reich knew that Nazism would not die with the Allied victory, but could continue the struggle from far-flung places. Moving both SS officers and vast amounts of capital abroad, the Reich took advantage of the ideological resonance that existed between the NSDAP and both anti-Communist and anti-Semitic elements abroad, including and especially, the Nazi underground that existed in the United States. Using the Vatican “ratlines” and their powerful business connections with Western (especially American) corporations and associated law firms, SS men went overseas, where the vast amounts of capital belonging to the Bormann flight capital network sustained their activities. Program highlights include: the role of the Bank for International Settlements in the Nazi financial diaspora; the formation and operation of the Reinhard Gehlen spy network; analysis of “The Red House Document,” including the provision by German corporations to fund the Nazi party underground after the war; brief discussion of the Grand Mufti and his alliance with the Third Reich.


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.


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.
