FTR #867 Because They Can, Part 3: Fireside Rant about Technocratic Fascism as “Cyber-Crowleyism”

Con­tin­u­ing dis­cus­sion from FTR #866, we devel­op var­i­ous man­i­fes­ta­tions of lib­er­tar­i­an, tech­no­crat­ic fas­cism. Cel­e­brat­ed by Sil­i­con Val­ley exec­u­tives and ele­vat­ed to pow­er (in part), by EBay chief Pierre Omid­yar, Naren­dra Mod­i’s Hin­du nationalist/fascist gov­ern­ment has been sup­press­ing free speech, laud­ing Mahat­ma Gand­hi’s killer as a patri­ot, mur­der­ing crit­ics and turn­ing a blind eye to lethal mob vio­lence direct­ed against Mus­lims for alleged­ly slaugh­ter­ing cows. Cap­i­tal­iz­ing on Snow­den’s activ­i­ties, the very finan­cial insti­tu­tions that pre­cip­i­tat­ed the 2008 finan­cial col­lapse are employ­ing a secure, end-to-end encryp­tion mes­sag­ing sys­tem that will enable them to evade reg­u­la­to­ry scruti­ny. The lais­sez-faire, cor­po­ratist eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy embraced by Modi is at one with the val­ues of Edward Snow­den, Julian Assange, the Tea Par­ty and the GOP as a whole, the advo­cates of Bit­coin, and the pirates of Wall Street. Pro­gram High­lights Include: a com­par­i­son of the social philoso­phies of Assange and Snow­den with those of the SS; review of Mod­i’s move to under­mine Indi­a’s child labor laws; review of the fright­en­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties of “smart con­tracts;” review of Bit­coin as “cyber-off­shoring.”


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.


German Banks and the Eurozone Crisis

Ger­man banks were fun­da­men­tal­ly involved in pump­ing the cap­i­tal into the now-trou­bled Euro­zone economies than oth­ers, despite lies to the con­trary. In addi­tion, they have been using Ger­many’s bailouts to shore up their own bal­ance sheets. Ger­man finance is prin­ci­pal­ly respon­si­ble for this cri­sis. Cur­rent­ly hold­ing the world econ­o­my hostage in order to dis­solve the polit­i­cal sov­er­eign­ty of Euro­pean nations, Ger­many is attempt­ing to real­ize the goals of the Third Reich.


Getting in Dutch: The Third Reich and the Royal Family of the Netherlands (“A Prince Too Far”)

Gen­er­a­tions of the Nether­lands’ Roy­al Fam­i­ly link to the Third Reich and its post­war man­i­fes­ta­tions. Prince Bern­hard was SS, an IG Far­ben spy and a trai­tor to the Allied Cause. Was he “the Trai­tor of Arn­hem?”


FTR #741 Bail, Bail, the Gang’s All Here

For­eign Banks bor­rowed exten­sive­ly from Fed dur­ing the melt­down; aid to Dex­ia and Dep­fa need­ed to avoid muni­pal fis­cal armaged­don, stem­ming par­tial­ly from Dex­i­a’s appar­ent crim­i­nal activ­i­ty.


Does Goldman Sachs Chief Lloyd Blankfein Enjoy Connections to the Intelligence Community?

Gold­man Sachs CEO Lloyd Blank­fein worked for the old law firm of OSS chief William Dono­van. Are Blank­fein, Gold­man Sachs involved with the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty?


BOHICA [Bend Over, Here It Comes Again], pt. 3: Major Red Ink on European Banks’ Books

Com­ment: More sto­ries high­light just how pre­car­i­ous the euro­zone’s finances are right now.  There are $2.6 tril­lion in loans to Por­tu­gal, Ire­land, Italy, Greece, and Spain (the P.I.I.G.S),  that are held by Europe’s banks. No one knows who is hold­ing how much of those loans.  As a result, ter­ror grows in the Euro­pean finan­cial com­mu­ni­ty about the […]


BOHICA, Pt. II: A VERY Scary Story

Com­ment: BOHICA is a mil­i­tary slang acronym for “Bend Over, Here It Comes Again!” A very dis­turb­ing sto­ry regard­ing the euro zone cri­sis was fea­tured in The Wall Street Jour­nal. It looks like the short-term lend­ing to a lot of Euro­pean banks is dry­ing up...this is the kiss of death to finan­cial insti­tu­tions in today’s […]


California GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Meg Whitman Tied to Goldman Sachs

Com­ment: Now that the SEC has seen fit to take Gold­man Sachs to the legal wood­shed for its actions in the sub­prime mess, it is worth not­ing that big-spend­ing GOP can­di­date for Gov­er­nor of Cal­i­for­nia Meg Whit­man is deeply tied to these SOB’s. “Whit­man’s Ties to Finan­cial Giant Gold­man Sachs” by Lance Williams and Car­la […]


Update on the Meltdown: BOHICA

Com­ment: There is a mil­i­tary slang acronym “BOHICA,” which stands for “Bend Over, Here It Comes Again.” “Econ­o­mists: Anoth­er Finan­cial Cri­sis on the Way” by Matthew Jaffe; ABC News; 3/2/2010. Even as many Amer­i­cans still strug­gle to recov­er from the coun­try’s worst eco­nom­ic down­turn since the Great Depres­sion, anoth­er cri­sis – one that will be […]
