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 #831 The Elderly “Wouldn’t Be Fucking Help­less if You Weren’t Send­ing them Fucking Checks to Sit on their Ass and Lay in Hos­pi­tals all Day”: The GOP’s Assault on Social Security

The title of the pro­gram is a ver­ba­tim quote from Edward Snowden–the Peach Fuzz Fascist–in 2009. The GOP-con­trolled 114th Con­gress is attempt­ing to imple­ment Snow­den’s views. In addi­tion to high­light­ing Snow­den’s ultra-reac­tionary views about abol­ish­ing Social Secu­ri­ty and restor­ing the gold stan­dard, the broad­cast sets forth the GOP’s disin­gen­u­ous state­ments about the Social Secu­ri­ty dis­abil­i­ty pro­gram, exem­pli­fied by Rand Paul’s bald-faced lies about the nature of the pro­gram. After chron­i­cling the GOP’s 80-year war on Social Secu­ri­ty, going back to the ear­ly days of Franklin Delano Roo­sevelt’s first term, the broad­cast reviews the 1934 coup attempt by pow­er­ful, fas­cist indus­tri­al and finan­cial inter­ests. Those same plot­ters sup­port­ed Mus­solin­i’s “cor­po­rate state” and Hitler’s eugen­ics pro­gram, aimed at elim­i­nat­ing “use­less bread gob­blers.” Like Snow­den, the 1934 coup plot­ters want­ed to elim­i­nate Social Secu­ri­ty and restore the gold stan­dard.


“Hurry Up and Die”: Taro Aso’s Pro-Eugenics Philosophy

In FTR #813, we not­ed the unabashed­ly pro-Hitler polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy of Japan­ese Min­is­ter Taro Aso, as well as sim­i­lar views from oth­er cur­rent­ly-serv­ing Japan­ese offi­cials. Aso is not shy about express­ing his pro-eugen­ics phi­los­o­phy as well, urg­ing the elder­ly to “Hur­ry Up and Die.” In a Japan­ese man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Leben­sporn con­cept, Aso is urg­ing young peo­ple to have as many chil­dren as pos­si­ble.

FTR #799 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The future of health care in soci­eties sub­ject­ed to the doc­trine of “Aus­te­ria” may be seen with the appoint­ment of doc­tri­naire neo-Nazi Makis “The Ham­mer” Voridis as Health Min­is­ter of Greece. Fas­cism is surg­ing in a Europe sub­ject­ed to Ger­man-man­dat­ed aus­ter­i­ty, as evi­denced by the recent EU Par­lia­men­tary elec­tions. Much of the pro­gram high­lights fas­cism march­ing under the decep­tive ban­ner of “free­dom” and/or lib­er­tar­i­an­ism. Bit­coin con­tin­ues its march toward monop­oly, with the mys­te­ri­ous Ghash.io con­trol­ling 51% of the mar­ket. Gun-wield­ing fas­cists sup­port­ive of “lib­er­tar­i­an” (read “white-suprema­cist”) Ron Paul gunned down police in Las Vegas, while so called “sov­er­eign cit­i­zens” shot up police in Cal­i­for­nia. “Cliv­en Bundists” (sup­port­ers of Cliv­en Bundy) have declared them­selves exempt from Bureau of Land Man­age­ment reg­u­la­tions in Neva­da, as the GOP ramps up anoth­er gov­ern­ment shut­down to foil Oba­ma’s cli­mate change leg­is­la­tion. At the same time, the very high-tech giants that com­plained so loud­ly about Oba­ma’s fail­ure to pro­tect indi­vid­ual pri­va­cy are surg­ing ahead with pro­grams and tech­nol­o­gy to oblit­er­ate that very con­sid­er­a­tion.


Update on “Clausewitzian Health Care”: A Nazi Heads Greek Health Ministry (EUthanasia)

With the coun­try’s pover­ty-dri­ven health care approx­i­mat­ing a lethal, slow-motion eugen­ics pro­gram, Greece’s “Clause­witz­ian Eco­nom­ics” fig­ures to accel­er­ate with the appoint­ment of Makis Voridis, a doc­tri­naire Nazi, to admin­is­ter the Greek Health Min­istry. As the Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed EMU and EU “bring the ham­mer down” on the Euro­pean econ­o­my and cit­i­zen­ry, it is grim­ly fas­ci­nat­ing to watch this hands-on appli­ca­tion of Von Clause­witz’s the­o­ret­i­cal prin­ci­ples.


Edward Snowden, Unplugged: The Elderly “Wouldn’t be Fucking Helpless If You Weren’t Sending Them Fucking Checks to Sit on their Ass and Lay in Hospitals all Day”

Excerpt­ing some of Snow­den’s 2009 online musings–crafted dur­ing the same time peri­od in which he decid­ed to leak NSA documents–gives us insight into his true nature. We’ve men­tioned Snow­den’s embrace of the gold stan­dard, belief that we should elim­i­nate Social Secu­ri­ty and deep affin­i­ty for Ron Paul. Per­haps exam­in­ing his actu­al pro­nounce­ments will prove edu­ca­tion­al. Snow­den [at right] is a nasty lit­tle fas­cist. Peo­ple should care­ful­ly con­sid­er the rest of his behav­ior in the con­text of his ide­o­log­i­cal state­ments.


The Underground Reich and the Max Planck Institute

We have dis­cussed the Max Planck insti­tute in past posts and pro­grams. Orig­i­nal­ly named the Kaiser Wil­helm Insti­tute, it was a major epi­cen­ter of Nazi sci­ence. In the 1950 Madrid cir­cu­lar let­ter craft­ed by the Nazi gov­ern­ment in exile, we find rein­forc­ing argu­ment that the Max Planck Insti­tute remained an epi­cen­ter for sci­en­tif­ic and tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ment for the Under­ground Reich.


Snowden’s Ride, Part 12: The Gruppenhobbit, the Deep Fifth Column and the Underground Reich

In this post, we exam­ine the cir­cum­stances, per­son­al his­to­ry and polit­i­cal and pro­fes­sion­al antecedents of Alex Karp (pic­tured at right), the CEO of Palan­tir, whom we nick­name “The Grup­pen­hob­bit.” The dom­i­nant influ­ence on Karp is the famous philoso­pher Juer­gen Haber­mas, an osten­si­ble left­ist whose intel­lec­tu­al antecedents are Nazi. The young Haber­mas was in the Hitler Youth and the Wehrma­cht. Haber­mas was direc­tor of the Max Planck Insti­tute for 12 years. That insti­tu­tion was the renamed Kaiser Wil­helm Insti­tute, a fount of Nazi sci­ence and the epi­cen­ter of Josef Men­gele’s Auschwitz research.


“Clausewitzian” Health Care: Austeritywitz in Greece

We con­tin­ue our cov­er­age of the real­i­ty of “aus­ter­i­ty” in Greece, man­dat­ed by the Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed EU. With Ger­man banks hav­ing pre­cip­i­tat­ed the Euro­zone cri­sis, the post­script is clas­sic “war by oth­er means,” as pre­scribed by Pruss­ian mil­i­tary the­o­reti­cian Carl von Clause­witz. The Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed Troi­ka installed the fas­cist LAOS par­ty in Greece, with no input from the cit­i­zens of that country–the cra­dle of democ­ra­cy. Hav­ing assumed con­trol of Greece’s health care sys­tem, Ger­man prof­it-dri­ven insti­tu­tions are insti­tut­ing dra­con­ian mea­sures, result­ing in–among oth­er things–A 40% INCREASE IN INFANT MORTALITY!


Knauer Later? History Is Repeating Itself in Europe (“Austeritywitz” Health Care)

We have dis­cussed the rela­tion­ship between eugen­ics, euthana­sia, the Nazi T‑4 pro­gram and the geno­cide that grew out of these. The T‑4 pro­gram began with the state-autho­rized killing of a bad­ly deformed infant named Knauer. Eco­nom­i­cal­ly and emo­tion­al­ly stress­ful for his par­ents, “baby Knauer” became the test case and pro­to­type for the Third Reich’s exter­mi­na­tion pro­grams. Recent leg­isla­tive pro­pos­als in aus­ter­i­ty-gripped Europe echo the Knauer case.
