Growth of Slovakian Fascism Illustrates the Dynamic Underlying Brexit and the Trumpenkampfverbande

Portrayed by the mainstream media as –of course–“populists,” the L’SNS led by Marian Kotleba (right) manifested their agenda upon joining the Slovakian parliament: ” . . . But one of the first acts of the new members of L’SNS in Slovakia’s parliament was to demand a minute of silence to mark the day Jozef Tiso was hanged in 1947 for treason–Tiso was the head of Slovakia’s pro-Nazi, totalitarian government when 70,000 Slovaks were deported to their deaths during World War II. . . .”


FTR #886 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 3: Geopolitical Quicksand

Analyzing the possibility that American use of Muslim Brotherhood Islamists as proxy warriors and armed heralds of corporatist free-market economic values might backfire on the United States, we look at the development of ISIS, the curious Turkish about-face on the Fetullah Gulen organization and fallout from the so-called “Arab Spring.” Beginning with discussion of a “doomsday” contingency plan concocted by al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein to back each other up militarily in the event either or both were overthrown by the U.S., we examine the prominent role of former members of Saddam’s officer corps in administering ISIS. ISIS and al-Qaeda are holding forth in Libya, which is serving as a base for spreading their operations into Africa. Like the bloody Syrian civil war, the overthrow of Khadafy (which set the stage for the Islamist presence in Libya) is an outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring”–one of the “conga-line ops” we highlighted in FTR #885. Much of the program highlights the operations of the Fetullah Gulen organization in Turkey. Alleged to be a CIA front organization and Islamic extremist in nature, the Gulen organization was formerly an ally of Tayyip Erdogan. Now, it is among his most bitter opponents. Program Highlights Include: review of Hitler’s view that Islamists were a crucial Third Reich ally; review of a critical meeting in Switzerland at which prominent Euro-fascists and al-Taqwa director Ahmed Huber met; speculation that the Swiss “Euro-fascist” summit may have helped generate the intelligence disinformation that helped lure the Bush administration into the ill-advised Iraq war; “ex” CIA officer Graham Fuller’s ridicule of the allegation that the Gulen organization is a CIA front organization; the close connections between Erdogan’s AKP Party, Germany and the EU.


FTR #885 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 2: “The Conga-Line ‘Ops’ “

For most of this decade, Mr. Emory has analyzed an overlapping series of “ops” that have determined much of contemporary political reality. At the epicenter of this dynamic is the Earth Island. “The Earth Island Boogie” embraces an overlapping series of “ops” including: the so-called “Orange Revolution” of Ukraine, WikiLeaks, the so-called “Arab Spring,” “L’Affaire Snowden” and the Maidan coup of 2014. ISIS is a direct outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring.” This broadcast presents a detailed overview of “the conga-line ‘ops,'” featuring links to key text excerpts providing longer analysis of these dynamics.


FTR #884 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie”?, Part 1 (Turkish Taffy, Part 4)

Clarifying and further developing analysis of geopolitical discussion from both previous and future broadcasts, this program details the developing Islamic fascism of Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan. Both a NATO country and Muslim Brotherhood-derived Islamist in nature, Turkey is also manifesting aggressive militarism. Silencing opposition press and legal investigators who have discovered his support for Islamic terrorists, Erdogan is proposing sweeping constitutional changes and invoking Hitler’s Germany as political precedent. Erdogan’s AK Party evolved from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Bank al-Taqwa milieu. Program Highlights Include: Erdogan’s AK Party’s links with Germany and the EU; Turkey’s dispatch of troops into Iraq, against the wishes of the Iraqi government; Hitler’s political last will and testament, envisioning Islamists as proxy warriors to fulfill his political agenda; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of Muslim Brotherhood-derived Islamists as proxy warriors against Russia in the Caucasus and China in Central Asia.


Germany, Greece and Franco’s Blue Division

Wolfgang Schauble (Germany’s Finance Minister) has stated that Germany needn’t repay the billions it stole from Greece during World War II, because a government is not obligated to fulfill the pledges of previous regimes. The fact that Germany continues to pay pensions to veterans of Spain’s Blue Division (which fought on the Eastern Front during World War II) suggests that the German government’s judgments are self-servingly selective.

Surprise, Surprise! BND Spying on U.S. Governmental Agencies, Individuals and NGO’s

A recent story relates what we already knew: that the BND–German intelligence and the successor to the Reinhard Gehlen spy outfit–does exactly the same things that the Germans are complaining about in connection with the “disclosures” of “Eddie the Friendly Spook” Snowden. BND appears to have retained much of its Nazi character over the years.

FTR #865 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and “Unholy Alliance”

Ratline highlights the flight of a mysterious Nazi using the alias Georg Anton Poch. Identified as Hitler in a book published in Indonesia, Poch was certainly someone of great importance, though not necessarily Hitler. His odyssey sheds light on the Vatican escape networks known collectively as “The Ratline.” Whoever he was, “Poch,” like so many Nazis, found succor in the Vatican. A Croatian priest–Father Draganovic–was one the prime movers of the Ratline The story of the Ratline and the Vatican’s operational sanctioning of the butchers of the Vatican-backed Croatian Ustachi casts a different historical light on recent events. Pope Francis’s visit to the United States has dominated the news cycle, with some coverage going to the controversy over his canonization of Father Juniper Serra, regarded as a brutal oppressor by Native American archivists. What has received no substantive coverage is the pending beatification of Archbishop Stepinac, a member of the Ustachi parliament during World War II. Program Highlights Include: the stewardship of the main Ustachi concentration camp Jasenovac by Father Filipovic, a Franciscan priest; Fr. Filipovic’s murdering of Serbian children with his bare hands; Operation Bernhard, a key Nazi counterfeiting operation; the many historical outgrowths of Bernhard, including the operations of the Ratline; the use of Stepinac’s church to stash Nazi war loot; Gerald Posner’s “point” role in leading the Bormann-inspired discreditation of Ladislas Farago.


Analyzing “Clausewitzian Economics”: Greek Politician Compares German Economic Hegemony to WWII

In past programs, we examined the Greek and Eurozone debt crises in the context of the theories of Friedrich List and Carl von Clausewitz, as well as the realization of those theories through successful manipulation of the transnational corporate landscape through both world wars and the “postwars” that followed them. Recently, a the Greek mayor of Corfu encapsulated that development rather succinctly: “What they didn’t manage in World War II they are managing now,” Kostas Nikolouzos, the left-wing mayor of Corfu, said of Germany, voicing a common sentiment. “It may sound extreme, but it’s true.” 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.

FTR #864 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and Other Books

Immigration has dominated the news recently, with the flood of refugees from the wars in the Middle East overwhelming European infrastructure as the phenomenon dominates political debate. Donald Trump capitalizes on anti-immigrant xenophobia to lead the field of presumptive GOP Presidential candidates. In The Hitler Legacy, Peter noted anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia as part of “The Hitler Legacy.” Turning to what might be described as the “prequel” to The Hitler Legacy, we highlight “Ratline.” Dealing with the story of the mysterious Dr. Anton Poch, we analyze the disappearance of Adolf Hitler. One of the main focal points of discussion concerns the “official” version of Hitler’s death is The Last Days of Hitler by Hugh Trevor-Roper. Trevor-Roper was an agent for MI6 (British intelligence) at the time and the writing and publication of his book was, in and of itself, an intelligence operation–a “psy-op” called Operation Nursery. Program Highlights Include: a comparison of Operation Nursery to the Warren Commission and its report; discussion of Paul Leverkuhn, a Nazi spy who was the head of the European Union when he attended the first Bilderberg meeting.


FTR #861 Greek Tragedy, Part 4

Continuing our analysis of the Greek economic and political crisis, we begin with review of Greece and the late stages of World War II. The occupying British turned on the partisans who had played a large part in the defeat of Axis occupation forces, setting the stage for a brutal civil war. Much of the program centers on the fire-sale of major Greek infrastructure, including the takeover of 14 regional airports by a German corporation. Much of Greek infrastructure is now up for sale, including infrastructure that is essential for the reconstruction of the economy of Greece. Having figured significantly in the development of Greek debt, a number of German businessmen are now fugitives from Greek justice, seeking to avoid prosecution for corruption charges. After noting that Greek debt is actually LOWER than German debt when calculated using a standard accounting scale, the program notes the proposal to have Greek youth work for free, in order to relieve the massive youth unemployment plaguing that country. Recorded on Labor Day weekend of 2015, the program concludes with rumination concerning the past and future of slavery, scrutinized against the background of recent and future events.
