FTR #921 The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 4: Trump on the Stump (The Underground Reich Emerges Into Plain View, Part 2)

Con­tin­u­ing analy­sis of Don­ald Trump’s can­di­da­cy, this pro­gram high­lights Trump’s suc­cess­ful use of Hitler’s rhetor­i­cal style and prin­ci­ples. Blog­ger Josh Mar­shall not­ed: ” . . . This was as wild and as unbri­dled a speech as I’ve seen from Trump. Even if you couldn’t under­stand Eng­lish, it would be stun­ning to watch the slash­ing hand ges­tures, the red face, the yelling. . . . Watch­ing this speech, com­pared to the press con­fer­ence today in Mex­i­co City, what kept com­ing to my mind was the con­trast between Hitler’s uni­formed ral­ly speech­es from the hus­tings and the suit­ed, states­man Hitler we see in the old news reels in Munich and at oth­er icon­ic moments in the late 1930s. . . . the dem­a­gog­ic style, the fren­zied invo­ca­tion of famil­ial blood sac­ri­ficed to bar­bar­ic out­siders – these are not unique to him [Hitler]. When we see this lurid, stab-in-the-back incite­ment, the wild hyper­bole, the febrile rail­ing against out­siders who will make us no longer a coun­try – the sim­i­lar­i­ties are real. More than any­thing, per­haps the most chill­ing part of this day is the con­trast between the two men – a mea­sured, calm states­man fig­ure we saw this after­noon and this rail­ing, angry dem­a­gogue fig­ure who cap­tured the emo­tion­al tenor of a Klan ral­ly. . . .” The sim­i­lar­i­ty does not appear to be coin­ci­den­tal: “. . . . Don­ald Trump appears to take aspects of his Ger­man back­ground seri­ous­ly. John Wal­ter works for the Trump Orga­ni­za­tion, and when he vis­its Don­ald in his office, Ivana told a friend, he clicks his heels and says, ‘Heil Hitler,’ pos­si­bly as a fam­i­ly joke. . . . Ivana Trump told her lawyer Michael Kennedy that from time to time her hus­band reads a book of Hitler’s col­lect­ed speech­es, ‘My New Order,’ which he keeps in a cab­i­net by his bed. . . .” The prin­ci­ples of the book have been put into action: “. . . . But it appears that one way or anoth­er, much of the con­tent in ‘My New Order’ about how Hitler says pro­pa­gan­da works, and how he struc­tures his speak­ing style, and how Hitler tar­gets the low­est-com­mon denom­i­na­tor as his intend­ed audi­ence, has seeped into Trump: the way he speaks, argues, rages and responds in pub­lic. . . .” Trump’s rhetor­i­cal rein­car­na­tion of Hitler cor­re­sponds to polit­i­cal sup­port from a bevy of fas­cists and white suprema­cists, old and new, as dis­cussed in FTR #‘s 882 and 920. Fur­ther­more, the financ­ing for his com­plex, mys­te­ri­ous­ly opaque real estate oper­a­tions comes from insti­tu­tions and indi­vid­u­als linked to the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, as high­light­ed in FTR #920. Con­tin­u­ing to man­i­fest “dog whis­tles” direct­ed at the Nazi faith­ful, Trump’s cam­paign pre­sent­ed the unlike­ly num­ber of 88 high-rank­ing mil­i­tary offi­cers who sup­port his can­di­da­cy, chan­nel­ing the “88” device used by post­war Nazis to code “Heil Hitler.” (“H” is the 8th let­ter of the alpha­bet.) One of the few observers to cor­rect­ly ana­lyze the scan­dalous role of the media in their cov­er­age of Trump’s cam­paign is for­mer CNN host Soledad O’Brien: ” . . . ‘If you look at Hillary Clinton’s speech where she basi­cal­ly point­ed out that what Don­ald Trump has done — actu­al­ly quite well — has nor­mal­ized white suprema­cy,’ O’Brien explained to CNN host Bri­an Stel­ter on Sun­day. ‘I think she made a very good argu­ment, almost like a lawyer. . . . The for­mer CNN host argued that the ques­tion that jour­nal­ists should be ask­ing is if Trump is ‘soft­en­ing the ground for peo­ple — who are white suprema­cists, who are white nation­al­ists, who would self-iden­ti­fy that way — to feel com­fort­able with their views being brought into the nation­al dis­course to the point where they can do a five minute inter­view hap­pi­ly on nation­al tele­vi­sion? And the answer is yes, clear­ly,’ she said. ‘And there is lots of evi­dence of that.’ . . .” The pro­gram con­cludes with a read­ing from “They Thought They Were Free: The Ger­mans 1933–1945”–listeners should com­pare their sub­jec­tive expe­ri­ence of the present with that of a pro­fes­sor who lived through Hitler’s ascen­sion. Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of Deutsche Bank’s pri­ma­ry role in back­ing Trump’s busi­ness oper­a­tions; review of George Soros’ back­ing of Trump’s busi­ness deal­ings; review of Soros’s role in “Aryaniz­ing” Jew­ish prop­er­ty dur­ing the Holo­caust; review of the links of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work’s piv­otal role in Deutsche Bank and the Union Bank of Switzer­land, anoth­er financier of Trump prop­er­ties; an ear­ly man­i­fes­ta­tion of Ger­man “Ost­poli­tik,” in which the SS intel­li­gence ser­vice float­ed the idea to Allen Dulles that Ger­many would ally with Rus­sia.


FTR #920 The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 3: The Underground Reich Emerges Into Plain View

QUICK: How many Pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates can you name who kept a book of Adolf Hitler’s speech­es by their bed­side? Don­ald Trump does. For many years, what Mr. Emory terms “The Under­ground Reich” has been a fun­da­men­tal point of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis in these broad­casts and posts. In the third pro­gram ana­lyz­ing the Don­ald Trump cam­paign, we exam­ine the “Trumpenkampfver­bande,” its polit­i­cal antecedents and adher­ents. Exem­pli­fy­ing, and net­work­ing with, gen­er­a­tions of fas­cists and fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions, the Trumpenkampfver­bande embod­ies the emer­gence of the Under­ground Reich into plain view. A sig­na­ture ele­ment of Trump’s cam­paign is his resus­ci­ta­tion of the “Amer­i­ca First” slo­gan and con­cept, a man­i­fes­ta­tion both of his thin­ly-veiled appeal to Nazi and white suprema­cist ele­ments and his will­ing­ness to cede dom­i­nance over world affairs to a Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed “third pow­er bloc.” The Amer­i­ca First con­cept mobi­lizes pow­er­ful feel­ings among those feel­ing over­whelmed and left behind by polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic devel­op­ments glob­al­ly and in the Unit­ed States. We note that the “orig­i­nal” Amer­i­ca First was financed by Nazi Ger­many. Trump’s invo­ca­tion of Amer­i­ca First exem­pli­fies the nature of his polit­i­cal her­itage and alle­giances. One of his top advis­ers Joseph E. Schmitz, “obsessed with all things Ger­man” and, accord­ing to asso­ciates, some­one who “fired the Jews” (from the Pen­ta­gon) and man­i­fest­ed Holo­caust denial. This is not atyp­i­cal of “Team Trump.” One of the most impor­tant fig­ures in main­stream­ing “alt right” (i.e. Nazi, white nation­al­ist and anti-Semit­ic) atti­tudes has been Breitbart’s Steve Ban­non, now essen­tial­ly run­ning the Trump cam­paign. Trump and his cam­paign have a habit of re-tweet­ing infor­ma­tion from “alt right” web­sites and mes­sage boards. Of pri­ma­ry sig­nif­i­cance in ana­lyz­ing Trump con­cerns the main finan­cial backer of his real estate projects–Deutsche Bank. In addi­tion to the fact that this places a poten­tial Pres­i­dent in the posi­tion of owing upwards of $100 mil­lion to an insti­tu­tion that has open­ly defied U.S. reg­u­la­to­ry posi­tions, Deutsche Bank is a pri­ma­ry ele­ment of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, about which we speak so often. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Analy­sis of the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Trump’s father was in the Ku Klux Klan; review of Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with for­mer Axis spy Nor­man Vin­cent Peale; review of Trump’s counsel–Senator Joe McCarthy aide Roy Cohn; Trump’s addi­tion­al finan­cial back­ing from George Soros, who got his start in busi­ness “Aryaniz­ing” Jew­ish prop­er­ty dur­ing the Holo­caust; Trump’s tweet­ing of a cam­paign ad fea­tur­ing Waf­fen SS-clad World War II re-enac­tors; The enthu­si­as­tic sup­poprt Trump has received from David Duke.


The “Un-Hollywood Ending” of Fritz Bauer

A new film focus­es on the work of Fritz Bauer, a Ger­man Jew and Holo­caust sur­vivor and his efforts to have Eich­mann pros­e­cut­ed. The dif­fer­ence between the world of movies and real life could­n’t be more dra­mat­ic: As dis­cussed in FTR #558, Eich­mann worked on con­tract for the Gehlen “Org” and, by exten­sion the CIA. ” . . . So much empha­sis is placed on select Jew­ish par­tic­i­pa­tion in Bor­mann com­pa­nies that when Adolf Eich­mann was seized and tak­en to Tel Aviv to stand tri­al, it pro­duced a shock wave in the Jew­ish and Ger­man com­mu­ni­ties of Buenos Aires. Jew­ish lead­ers informed the Israeli author­i­ties in no uncer­tain terms that this must nev­er hap­pen again because a rep­e­ti­tion would per­ma­nent­ly rup­ture rela­tions with the Ger­mans of Latin Amer­i­ca, as well as with the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion, and cut off the flow of Jew­ish mon­ey to Israel. . . .” ” . . . One such ter­mi­na­tion was Fritz Bauer, for­mer­ly attor­ney gen­er­al for the State of Hesse in Frank­furt, a sur­vivor of Auschwitz and the man who tipped off the Israeli Mossad about the pres­ence of Adolf Eich­mann in Buenos Aires, who was killed on orders of Gen­er­al Mueller. His body was found in his bath­tub and list­ed as “death by heart attack” by the Frank­furt police. The real cause: cyanide spray that induces heart stop­page with­out detec­tion, the same modus operan­di that Mueller used to kill the Bor­mann stand-ins who were placed in the Berlin freight yards in late April of 1945. . . .”


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 #907 Update on Ukraine

Sup­ple­ment­ing our many pre­vi­ous pro­grams on Ukraine, this broad­cast fur­ther devel­ops the Orwellian re-write of World War II his­to­ry, as well as chron­i­cling the deep polit­i­cal his­to­ry of the Ukrain­ian dias­po­ra, its alliance with the Third Reich and its pro­found pres­ence pri­or to, and dur­ing, World War II. An arti­cle in “For­eign Policy”–a main­stream publication–notes the role of Volodymyr Via­tro­vych in turn­ing Ukrain­ian World War II his­to­ry on its head.

Hired orig­i­nal­ly by Vik­tor Yuschenko to head the Orwellian-named “Insti­tute for Nation­al Mem­o­ry,” Via­tro­vych decamped to the U.S. after the elec­tion of the Yanukovich gov­ern­ment, only to return to Ukraine and resume his revi­sion­ist work under Petro Poroshenko. Recast­ing the Third Reich allies and geno­ci­dal col­lab­o­ra­tors of the OUN/B as heroes and res­cuers of Jews dur­ing the Holo­caust, Via­tro­vych has been com­ple­ment­ed in his work by educ­tion min­is­ter Ser­hiy Kvit and Yuriy Shukhevych, the son of UPA chief Roman Shukhevych. (The UPA was the mil­i­tary wing of the OUN/B.) In Ukraine, it is now a crime to say any­thing crit­i­cal about the OUN/B or UPA.

The mea­sure of the revi­sion­ism under­way in Ukraine can be gauged by this state­ment about UPA pol­i­cy toward the Poles: “. . . . UPA supreme com­man­der Dmytro Kliachkivs’kyi explic­it­ly stat­ed: ‘We should car­ry out a large-scale liq­ui­da­tion action against Pol­ish ele­ments. Dur­ing the evac­u­a­tion of the Ger­man Army, we should find an appro­pri­ate moment to liq­ui­date the entire male pop­u­la­tion between 16 and 60 years old.’ Giv­en that over 70 per­cent of the lead­ing UPA cadres pos­sessed a back­ground as Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors, none of this is sur­pris­ing. . . .” Recount­ing that quote would be a crime in Ukraine!

Much of the pro­gram con­sists of a recount­ing of the Ukrain­ian Fifth Col­umn in the Unit­ed States and its col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Third Reich. The Ger­man Gen­er­al Staff had been groom­ing Ukraini­ans as allies dur­ing the clos­ing stages of the First World War and its after­math, cul­mi­nat­ing with the for­ma­tion of the OUN as an exten­sion of Nazi impe­r­i­al designs. Embed­ded with ele­ments of our mil­i­tary, the Ukrain­ian Fifth Col­umn were active­ly engaged in crim­i­nal activ­i­ties, includ­ing sab­o­tage of key Amer­i­can infra­struc­ture tar­gets.

The peri­od­i­cal of the OUN was titled “Svo­bo­da,” now the name of one of the key OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions in pow­er in Ukraine.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: the Pelypenko affair, in which a Ukrain­ian Ortho­dox priest and Gestapo agent dis­closed the dimen­sions and work­ings of the Nazi/Ukrainian Fifth Col­umn in the U.S.; Svo­bo­da par­ty mem­ber Andriy Paru­biy’s ele­va­tion to being speak­er of the Ukrain­ian par­lia­ment; review of Vik­tor Yuschenko’s strong ties to the Ukrain­ian-Amer­i­can branch­es of the OUN/B; dis­cus­sion of the bogus law degree of incom­ing Prime Min­is­ter Volodomyr Groys­man, obtained from MAUP Uni­ver­si­ty, the epi­cen­ter of anti-Semi­tism in Ukraine; review of David Duke’s role as a fac­ul­ty mem­ber at MAUP; the assign­ment of a con­tin­gent of the Nazi Azov bat­tal­ion to “main­tain order” in Odessa, the site of a mas­sacre-by-fire of eth­nic Russ­ian pro­test­ers in 2014.


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.


Fahrvergnugen

Cit­ing Ger­many’s pri­va­cy laws, Volk­swa­gen has refused to turn over doc­u­ments to U.S. pros­e­cu­tors inves­ti­gat­ing the diesel emis­sions scan­dal. VW exec­u­tives have long left cell phones out­side of com­pa­ny meet­ings, fear­ing elec­tron­ic eaves­drop­ping, though they were “shocked, shocked” at “L’Af­faire Snow­den.” Orig­i­nat­ing as the “KDF-Wagen” in the Third Reich, VW is one of the Ger­man core cor­po­ra­tions. It is deeply involved with the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.

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.

FTR #876 The OUN/B and the Assassination of JFK

High­light­ing the links between the OUN/B and the assas­si­na­tion of JFK, the broad­cast under­scores the dis­in­for­ma­tion link­ing the alleged KGB assas­si­na­tion of Stephan Ban­dera with Lee Har­vey Oswald. Sup­pos­ed­ly trained as an assas­sin by the same KGB units that alleged­ly killed Ban­dera, Oswald was “paint­ed red” in order to deflect blame for the assas­si­na­tion onto the Sovi­et Union. The dis­in­for­ma­tion link­ing the Ban­dera assas­si­na­tion with the killing of Kennedy was large­ly dis­sem­i­nat­ed by ele­ments that were to coa­lesce as the World Anti-Com­mu­nist League a few years lat­er. Both the OUN/B ele­ments in the Unit­ed States and key fig­ures in the cov­er-up of the JFK assas­si­na­tion track back to the Cru­sade For Free­dom, a covert oper­a­tion that pre­cip­i­tat­ed the for­ma­tion of a Nazi branch of the GOP. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Sen­a­tor Thomas Dod­d’s role in spread­ing the KGB killed Kennedy dis­in­for­ma­tion; Dod­d’s links to the Amer­i­can Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil; the role of OUN/B func­tionary Lev Dobri­an­sky in dis­sem­i­nat­ing the Oswald/KGB/Bandera killing dis­in­for­ma­tion; the roles of Ronald Rea­gan, Allen Dulles, Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush in both the Cru­sade For Free­dom activ­i­ties and the events in Dal­las in 1963.


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.
