FTR #810 A Prince Too Far

Pop con­spir­a­cy the­o­ry casts the Bilder­berg­er group in a sen­sa­tion­al­ist, polit­i­cal­ly and his­tor­i­cal­ly illit­er­ate “New World Order” con­text. In this broad­cast, we exam­ine the his­to­ry of Prince Bern­hard, the for­mer SS offi­cer and I.G. Far­ben spy who found­ed the group, against the back­ground of the Bat­tle of Arn­hem (Oper­a­tion Mar­ket Gar­den) in Sep­tem­ber of 1944. As head of the Dutch “resis­tance,” appar­ent dou­ble agent Bern­hard sac­ri­ficed a resis­tance fight­er named Chris­t­ian Lin­de­mans (code named “King Kong”), who took the blame for the delib­er­ate betray­al of the Allied bat­tle plan. Sab­o­tage of the Arn­hem oper­a­tion has also been part­ly attrib­uted to Peter Car­ring­ton (lat­er Lord Car­ring­ton and for­mer British For­eign Sec­re­tary dur­ing the run-up to the Fal­ka­lands War.) Attacked for his stun­ning lack of insight with regard to the Argen­tine fas­cist jun­ta’s inva­sion of those islands, Car­ring­ton has nev­er been prop­er­ly vet­ted with regard to the betray­al of part of the British bat­tle plan for the Fal­ka­lnds cam­paign. The pro­gram also exam­ines the fas­cist activ­i­ties and involve­ments of Bern­hard’s heirs in the Roy­al Fam­i­ly of the Nether­lands.


FTR #802 The Luxembourg Connection (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?” Part 2)

This broad­cast illus­trates the deep polit­i­cal rela­tion­ships that evolved from the Third Reich’s for­mal mil­i­tary occu­pa­tion of Europe. These rela­tion­ships are inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work that forms the basis of much of Mr. Emory’s ana­lyt­i­cal par­a­digm. Tak­en in con­cert, they help to illus­trate what Mr. Emory means by “Under­ground Reich.” Angela Merkel’s selec­tion of aus­ter­i­ty advo­cate Jean-Claude Junck­er as Pres­i­dent of the Euro­pean Union Com­mis­sion will see a long-time Ger­man ally and son of a Wehrma­cht com­bat­ant ascend to the pin­na­cle of EU gov­er­nor­ship. The con­nec­tions dom­i­nat­ing the back­ground and char­ac­ter of the Ger­manophile Junck­er track back to the Nazi occu­pa­tion of Lux­em­bourg dur­ing World War II and car­tel con­nec­tions that facil­i­tat­ed the Third Reich’s amoe­ba-like absorp­tion of the Euro­pean econ­o­my. Dur­ing the Nazi occu­pa­tion, Lux­em­bourg’s econ­o­my was fold­ed into “Europa Ger­man­i­ca,” with Gus­tav Koenigs, Chair­man of the Bush-Fam­i­ly linked Ham­burg-Ameri­ka Line and Sec­re­tary of State of the Third Reich over­see­ing the steel car­tel ARBED and much of Lux­em­bourg’s oth­er busi­ness. After the war, Lux­em­bourg con­tin­ued to be a pri­ma­ry ele­ment of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.


FTR #791 They May Not Know Art, but They Know What They Like

Explor­ing past and present, this pro­gram exam­ines a detailed, schol­ar­ly work­ing hypoth­e­sis by authors Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams con­cern­ing the pos­si­ble escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the oper­a­tion facil­i­tat­ing Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­o­gy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion. The ‘dis­cov­ery” of a huge cache of Nazi-loot­ed art in Munich in late 2013 is exam­ined against the back­ground of this alleged quid pro quo.


FTR #788 Greek Tragedy, Part 2: “Clausewitzian Economics–The Continuation of War by Other Means”

This pro­gram details the hor­ri­fy­ing devel­op­ments unfold­ing in Greece. Embody­ing Carl von Clause­witz’s con­cept of “pol­i­tics as a con­tin­u­a­tion of war by oth­er means,” Greece is a cru­el and depress­ing exam­ple of the long-stand­ing strat­e­gy of German/Underground Reich geopol­i­tics. Real­iz­ing a strat­e­gy for Ger­man polit­i­cal dom­i­na­tion of Europe and the world, the EU and EMU are direct man­i­fes­ta­tions of the strat­e­gy first advo­cat­ed by Friedrich List in the 19th cen­tu­ry.


Is the Underground Reich Beginning a Terrorist and Economic World War III against the U.S. and Britain?

A vital­ly impor­tant post by “Pter­rafractyl” frames some con­sid­er­a­tions that have seri­ous impli­ca­tions. Are Ger­many and Brazil begin­ning an eco­nom­ic war­fare cam­paign against the U.S. tech indus­try? Are they plan­ning on coop­er­at­ing with crim­i­nal and ter­ror­ist ele­ments in this regard? Note that a Brazil­ian banker was recent­ly found with unde­ci­pher­able encrypt­ed files.


FTR #768 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?” Part 1: The Naumann Coup Attempt of 1953

Wern­er Naumann–Joseph Goebbels’ cho­sen suc­ces­sor as head of the Nazi pro­pa­gan­da ministry–was arrest­ed plot­ting a coup with oth­er for­mer high-rank­ing Nazis in 1953. The inves­ti­ga­tion revealed that Nau­mann and his asso­ciates were act­ing at the direc­tion of a Nazi gov­ern­ment-in-exile based in Madrid. With the sup­port of Ger­man indus­try and finance, this Under­ground Reich oper­at­ed all over the world, exe­cut­ing con­spir­a­cies in for­eign coun­tries on behalf of Ger­man car­tels.


BND Files on Postwar Gestapo and SS Agents Purged During Ernst Uhrlau’s Directorship

Chief of the Ham­burg police dur­ing a peri­od in which Ger­man intel­li­gence had mem­bers of the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, Ernst Uhrlau was appoint­ed spe­cial advis­er to the Chan­cel­lor on intel­li­gence mat­ters in 1998. He became head of the BND in 2005. Dur­ing Uhrlau’s tenure as BND direc­tor, files on BND offi­cers with SS and Gestapo back­grounds were shred­ded.


FTR #762 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 8: U‑2 Brut? (The Destabilization of the Obama Administration)

Among the evi­dent pri­ma­ry goals of the intel­li­gence oper­a­tion under­tak­en by Edward Snow­den is the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion. Inten­tion­al­ly dam­ag­ing Oba­ma’s attempts at improv­ing rela­tions with Rus­sia, Chi­na and Germany/EU, the “op” bears strong sim­i­lar­i­ty to the U‑2 inci­dent in May of 1960. That oper­a­tion appears to have been orches­trat­ed by domes­tic intel­li­gence ele­ments, where­as this appears to have been a for­eign “op,” prob­a­bly BND/Underground Reich.


FTR #761 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 7: Why the NSA Should Be Spying on Germany and Its Chancellor

This pro­gram high­lights German/Underground Reich con­nec­tions to both the 9/11 attacks and the Okla­homa City bomb­ing. Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance is Ernst Uhrlau: chief of Ham­burg police at the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the 9/11 cell under sur­veil­lance, appoint­ed coor­di­na­tor of intel­li­gence for the Ger­man chan­cel­lor in 1998 and head of the BND in 2005. The son of Chan­cel­lor Kohl’s chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing and BND may well have been manip­u­lat­ing Mohamed Atta.


The Heinrich Muller “Death” Deception

Not even the War­ren Com­mis­sion would buy this one! A dis­in­for­ma­tion piece is in cir­cu­la­tion claim­ing that Gestapo chief Hein­rich Mueller was alleged­ly iden­ti­fied as hav­ing been killed in Berlin dur­ing the last week of the war. A Los Ange­les Times piece from 2001 notes archival infor­ma­tion that Mueller was cap­tured by Amer­i­can troops at the end of the war. We have dealt at length with Mueller’s post­war work as secu­ri­ty direc­tor for the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.
