The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Koch Brothers

Peter Schweizer, author of “Clinton Cash” gave one of the fea­tured speeches last sum­mer at a Koch Brothers event. He is, basically, a Koch Brothers political hitman. The New York Times, and the Wash­ing­ton Post have all signed a con­tract for exclu­sive agree­ments with the author of an upcom­ing book about Hillary Clin­ton and the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion.

DigitalGlobe Strikes Again

Once again we are being treated to photographs purporting to show: Russian military units “invading” Ukraine and/or Russian military equipment being “given to the rebels” by the Russian military. The U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine–Geoffrey Pyatt–Tweeted what are supposed to be pictures “proving” direct Russian military assistance to Ukraine after the “Minsk II” cease fire. Apart from the lack of coordinates on the photographs and the dubious nature of the images presented, these pictures come to us courtesy of DigitalGlobe, discussed at length in FTR #811.

Jaanika Merilo, the Estonian (of Ukrainian Heritage) Minister Who Is to “Attract Foreign Investment” to Ukraine

In FTR #’s 824 and 826 (among other programs) we discussed the incorporation of foreign nationals (many of Ukrainian descent) into the government of Ukraine. Joining Ukrainian-American Natalie Jaresko (Minister of Finance) will be Jaanika Merilo, an Estonian of Ukrainian heritage. Merilo’s designated task will be to attract foreign investment. Ms. Merilo has not displayed what would be considered professional conduct for a businesswoman. Examining the pictures Ms. Merilo has posted of herself, we cannot help but wonder just WHAT type of “investment” she is trying to “attract,” and WHERE, exactly, it is going to be “invested?” 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.

Ukrainian Government Slips Up, Admits No Russian Invasion

Although The Ministry of Truth will never admit it, occasional cracks in the disinformation wall surrounding the Ukraine crisis have appeared. “On the ground” in Ukraine, George Eliason informs us of a couple of slip-ups on Channel 5, owned (ironically) by president Petro Poroshenko. Both a Ukrainian general and one of that country’s intelligence officers let slip that there has been no “Russian invasion,” as we have been told.

Germany’s Debt is More than Double that of Greece’s!

A recent article in Forbes underscores the flawed accounting underlying the lethal fiscal policy imposed on the citizens of the “cradle of democracy.” An unconventional accounting method has been used to calculate that Greek debt is 175% of GDP, the statistical foundation for the crushing austerity that afflicts that country. In fact, it is 18%, when calculated using the standard “Ipsas” accounting method. Germany’s on the other hand, is 46%, when calculated under that standard!

FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Levenda has posted an article (excerpted from his recent book) that encapsulates significant elements of discussion presented by Mr. Emory and featured on this website. Noting Imperial Germany’s use of Islamic proxy warriors during the First World War and Nazi Germany’s incorporation of the same stratagem, Levenda notes that Nazi elements have continued to use Muslim proxy warfare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Underground Reich. Having incorporated many important elements of Nazi Germany’s national security establishment into its own after World War II, the United States has co-opted the tactic of proxy war. To its detriment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Underground Reich and its Islamist proxies have their own agendas. Those agendas feature the defeat of the United States as a centerpiece of long-term strategy. Concluding with an examination of recent American military involvement, the program notes that much of what we are doing actually benfits Germany and occurs in areas formerly belonging to the Ottoman Empire.


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.


General Francisco Franco May NOT Be So Dead, After All

In addition to its aggressive, nationalistic stance toward the British territory of Gibraltar, Spain has been manifesting elements of its fascist past. Mariano Rajoy’s People’s Party incorporated much of the cadre of Francisco Franco’s Falange. With social unrest growing from Spain’s dire economic straits, that fascist heritage is evident in that country’s present political landscape.


The New World Ordoliberalism Part 2: A ‘Third Way’ to Fascism

Ordoliberalism has long been the economic philosophy guiding German policy-makers. But with the creation of the eurozone, ordoliberalism has quietly become the default policy-stance for the entire zone. This has been happening with little recognition that ordoliberal ideas have been playing such a profound role. And there’s been even less attention paid to the ordoliberal philosophy itself. Surprise! It’s kind of fascist. Updated 7/26/2013


Ratzinger Leaves the Ship

A caretaker Pope, Benedict XVI presided over numerous inquiries into Vatican malfeasance. His resignation raises the question as to what will follow. Steeped in the Vatican’s long-standing relationship with fascism, the outgoing Pope presided over a whitewash of Pius XII’s involvement with the Third Reich and a blunting of inquiries into the molestation scandals unfolding around the world.
