EU Expansionism and the Ukrainian Crisis

A revealing article from the Telegraph [UK] informs us of the size of the EU’s funding of Ukrainian civil society in its drive to bring that country into the EU’s (read “Germany’s”) orbit. Having committed 496 million Euros to civic organizations in Ukraine, EU poured roughly 11 Euros into the country for every man woman and child in its population. That pales by comparison with the $5 billion the U.S. has invested in Ukrainian civil society (this according to Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.) Also interesting is an account in the story above
that an electrician employed in Ukraine received the equivalent of a month’s pay to join in pro-EU demonstrations. The money was said to be paid by a German bank.


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 #800 Meet the New Boss(es), Same as the Old Boss(es): Update on Ukraine

Continuing our ongoing coverage of the Ukrainian crisis, the program begins with an examination of the continuity of the OUN/B Third Reich collaborationist milieu through the decades. The “new” President Petro Poroshenko is advised by a team of political vetarns, including Roman Zvarych (“Svarych”), the personal secretary to OUN/B head Jaroslav Stetsko and a right-hand man to his widow and successor Slava Stetsko. Svarych served as Minister of Justice in both Tymnoshenko governments, as well as under Viktor Yuschenko. The Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists, co-founded by Slava Stetsko and Zvarych, has served as a central element in Ukrainian political coalitions, embodying the continuity of the OUN/B throughout the short history of post-Soviet Ukraine. In addition to retaining Swoboda’s Andriy Parubiy as Ukraine’s top defense official, Poroshenko is implementing the EU austerity doctrine, continuing the brutal civil war and opening up Ukraine to German investment. The U.S. and EU are endorsing fracking and fossil fuel production to sabotage the Russian economy and President Putin’s government.


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.


Meet the New Boss(es), Same as the Old Boss(es): Poroshenko Reconstitutes “Team Yuschenko”

In FTR #781, we noted that Viktor Yuschenko–married to top OUN/B official and Reagan Deputy Director of Presidential Liaison Ykaterina Chumachenko–institutionalized the Bandera political cadre, rewriting Ukrainian World War II history and paving the way for the rise of Swoboda and Pravy Sektor. We now learn that “new” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has reconstituted the old Yuschenko team, including American-born Roman Svarych, Yuschenko’s Minister of Justice and the personal secretary to OUN/B leader Yaroslav Stetsko in the early 1980’s.


German Economic Colonization of Ukraine

With the U.S. and Germany respectively playing Bad Cop (military aid and sanctions) and Good Cop (economic aid and resistance to further sanctions at the behest of key German corporations invested in Russia), the follow-up to the covert operation resulting in the coup d’etat of early 2014 is proceeding apace. German industry–surprise, surprise–plans to modernize Ukrainian industries and establish subcontracting arrangements to build automobiles in that cheap labor market. This will be coupled by the austerity doctrine we have termed “Von Clausewitzian economics.”


Robert Parry on Conscription of neo-Nazis in Ukraine, Orwellian Coverage by U.S. Media

We have noted that the provisional government there is directly evolved from the OUN/B Ukrainian Nazi administration and military apparatus of World War II. We have also highlighted that the utter perversion of political and historical reality by our media is worthy of George Orwell’s 1984. In a post on the Ukrainian crisis, Robert Parry highlights the Orwellian nature of our media’s deliberate and fundamental misrepresentation of the situation there. In addition, Parry notes the inclusion of elements like Pravy Sektor and Swoboda into the national militas being sent to Eastern Ukraine as “anti-terrorist ” forces.


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.


Pravy Sektor Storms Ukrainian Parliament

Pravy Sektor street soldiers stormed the Ukrainian parliament in Kiev over the death of one of their number at the hands of security forces. It will be interesting to see how the Ukrainian population receives the austerity package that the EU has in place for them!


What’s Wrong with This Picture?

In the aftermath of the Ukraine coup, wanted posters for former president Yanukovich sprang up all over that country and were liberally distributed in the media. QUICK: If you were going to craft and distribute wanted posters in the United States, would you have the text in Ukrainian?
