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.

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 […]
