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.
