FTR #903 Daniel Hopsicker on Donald Trump and How He Is Going to Make America Great Again

Donald Trump’s entire business career–his “art of the deal”–derives from highly questionable dealings with a pantheon of organized crime figures, corrupt financiers and intelligence-connected operatives. From his early entrepreneurial career in Atlantic City to his undertakings in Florida to his operations in Western cities like Las Vegas, one finds Trump associated with Jimmy-Hoffa linked Mafia figures, people from the milieu of Howard Hughes and Iran-Contra players such as Adnan Khashoggi. Trump has projected financier Carl Icahn as his Secretary of the Treasury, ignoring Icahn’s link to what Daniel has called “Cocaine One” and the mysterious, nefarious Skyway airlines. Trump’s Atlantic City deals involved mob-linked figures like Dan Sullivan, Kenneth Shapiro, “Fat Tony Salerno” and Nicky Scarfo. More significantly, the State of New Jersey, Atlantic City officials, and the Holiday Inn interests have aided Trump in highly questionable ways. In Las Vegas, Trump has been the heir to figures from the Meyer Lansky and Howard Hughes interests, such as Louis Lesser. Trump’s larger circle of friends links to individuals and institutions involved with the Marcos family in the Philippines, whose largesse derived from the Golden Lily loot secreted by the Japanese in World War II. Program Highlights Include: Craig Lesser (Louis Lesser’s son) and his role in accessing some of the Golden Lily loot in the Philippines; Iran-Contra figure Adnan Khashoggi’s sale of his personal yacht to Donald Trump; Khashoggi’s links to Imelda Marcos; Trump’s flipping of a luxury Palm Beach (Florida) property to Russian mobster Dimitry Rybolovlev; Trump’s use of “offshoring” tactics to render his dealings opaque.

Many listener have noted the discovery of what appears to be a Nazi treasure train, which had been successfully hidden in a tunnel in Poland. An article in The Daily Mail speculates that the train may contain the fabled Amber Room. IF those reports are correct, it will be interesting to see what becomes of the negotiations that will follow.

FTR #844 Interview (#7) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Peter Levenda’s “The Hitler Legacy” is, in Mr. Emory’s opinion, one of the most important political books ever written. This seventh interview with Peter about the book sets forth the powerful Nazi presence in Indonesia prior to, during, and after World War II. In addition to the significant presence of the Dutch Nazi party in Indonesia, the NSDAP also had a significant presence in this former colony of the Netherlands. The most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia was seen as the key element in an Islamist bulwark against Communist China. This stratagem was envisioned by Charles Willoughby, General Douglas MacArthur’s intelligence chief and a doctrinaire fascist. Although supportive of Axis conquest of the Netherlands and Indonesia, which he saw as freeing the archipelago from colonial domination, Sukarno espoused a “Third Way” at the conference of Non-Aligned nations in Bandung in 1955. This led the US to see him as a Communist and begin attempts to depose him. In order to provide financing for Indonesia and other Third World countries, Sukarno appears to have turned to Hjalmar Schacht, Hitler’s finance minister, who utilized Nazi gold shipments to Asia to “prime the economic pump” for this abortive project.


Greek Prime Minister Continues to Pursue World War II Reparations from Germany

As discussed in FTR #788, Germany has NOT reimbursed Greece for the enormous damage wrought during World War II. Once again, that purloined wealth and the Bormann capital network that was the vehicle for the reinvestment of the Nazis’ World War II loot is center stage. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsirpas is demanding that the money be repaid. Tsirpas’ demand focuses attention on a dynamic that lies at the foundation of 20th and 21st capital flows.

FTR #813 Return of the Rising Sun, Part 3

Grandson of the Japanese war criminal who signed that country’s declaration of war against the U.S., Shinzo Abe is following in the footsteps of Nobosuke Kishi (his grandfather), as well as those of Kishi’s associates in Japan’s expansionist empire. Revising school textbooks about World War II, passing a new secrecy law, instituting greater state control of news media, dramatically increasing defense spending while moving to alter the constitution to permit a more militaristic agenda, Abe is turning back the Japanese historical and political clock. Japanese government officials are openly sanctioning anti-Korean racism and networking with organizations that promote that doctrine. Several members of Abe’s government network with Japanese neo-Nazis. Vice-Prime Minister Taro Aso is a longtime admirer of Nazi political strategy and advocates using the Nazi method for seizing power to sneak constitutional change past the Japanese public.


Dark Cloud on the Rising Sun

In his second stint as Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe is rebooting the right-wing political agenda he pursued during his first term in the last decade. The grandson of prominent Japanese war criminal Nobosuke Kishi, Abe is implementing revisionist politics designed to obfuscate Japan’s actions during World War II, including editing textbooks to change written history of the war, implementing a new secrecy law, bring the respected NHK television network under government control and negating accounts of Japanese war crimes.


FTR #770 Bit[coin]burg, Part 3: Fool’s Gold

Presented as an alternative to the existing monetary and fiscal paradigms, bitcoin is–in fact–as bad, or worse, than what it is designed to replace. Subject to a wide variety of crooked machinations, bitcoin also lends itself readily to concentration of ownership–get ready for the “bitcoin 1%.” The bitcoin milieu increasingly overlaps that of Eddie the Friendly Spook and “The Paulistinian Libertarian Organization.”


Whither Japan? Divine Wind, Take 2?

In numerous broadcasts, we have covered the sad reality that in post World War II Japan, the public perception that the forces of fascism were eradicated is a deliberately cultivated political myth. Japanese prime minister Abe has embarked on a program of militarism, with one of his top defense advisers highlighting a campaign appearance by reading from the diary of a Kamikaze pilot, who died crashing his plane into an American warship. UPDATED ON 8/9/2013.


Going for the Gold in Cyprus (All that Glitters Is not . . . “Oh, Never Mind,” Part 2)

Reversing field time and again, the EMU’s not-so-wise men (and women) are destroying business confidence on the part of those who might be inclined to invest in the industrial or financial sectors of the eurozone’s troubled economies. It appears that 75% of Cyprus’ gold reserves are going to be appropriated as part of the “settlement.” Furthermore, this apparently comes as news to the Cypriot officials handling the situation for that unfortunate country.


Winds of War Blowing over Northern Pacific Islands?

There has been a significant uptick in real or alleged military confrontations over disputed islands in the North Pacific. Conservative commentator Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has noted the possible drift toward war between Japan and China over uninhibited and disputed Islands. Japan has also accused Russia of fomenting confrontation over the disputed Kuriles.
