FTR #1058, FTR #1059 and FTR #1060 The Christian West, Parts 1, 2 and 3: Contextual Foundation of the Jim DiEugenio Interviews

Review­ing past mate­r­i­al in order to refresh and rein­force under­stand­ing of the his­tor­i­cal con­text and foun­da­tion of the recent Jim DiEu­ge­nio inter­views, this pro­gram reviews infor­ma­tion rel­e­vant to the con­cept of the Chris­t­ian West. “The Chris­t­ian West” is explained in the descrip­tion for AFA #37: ” . . . . When it became clear that the armies of the Third Reich were going to be defeat­ed, it opened secret nego­ti­a­tions with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the West­ern Allies. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives on both sides belonged to the transat­lantic finan­cial and indus­tri­al fra­ter­ni­ty that had active­ly sup­port­ed fas­cism. The thrust of these nego­ti­a­tions was the estab­lish­ment of The Chris­t­ian West. Viewed by the Nazis as a vehi­cle for sur­viv­ing mil­i­tary defeat, ‘The Chris­t­ian West’ involved a Hitler-less Reich join­ing with the U.S., Britain, France and oth­er Euro­pean nations in a transat­lantic, pan-Euro­pean anti-Sovi­et alliance. In fact, The Chris­t­ian West became a real­i­ty only after the ces­sa­tion of hos­til­i­ties. The de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many was abort­ed. Although a few of the more obvi­ous and obnox­ious ele­ments of Nazism were removed, Nazis were returned to pow­er at vir­tu­al­ly every lev­el and in almost every capac­i­ty in the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many. . . .”

Against the back­ground of Allen and John Fos­ter Dulles’ long, over­lap­ping careers as lawyers for Sul­li­van & Cromwell, as well as gov­ern­ment oper­a­tives, we note the deci­sive role of car­tels in pre­cip­i­tat­ing fas­cism and the posi­tion in the polit­i­cal and macro-eco­nom­ic land­scape of the events stem­ming from that.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Amer­i­can recruit­ment of Nazi East­ern Front intel­li­gence offi­cers in August of 1944 (far ear­li­er than gen­er­al­ly sup­posed); The Gehlen “Org“ ‘s incor­po­ra­tion into the CIA with the con­sent of a Nazi chain of com­mand that was still in exis­tence; the role in the Gehlen Org of East­ern Euro­pean fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions includ­ing the OUN/B, the Roman­ian Iron Guard, the Croa­t­ian Ustachi, the Bul­gar­i­an Nation­al Front and the SS Baltic Legion; the incor­po­ra­tion of those same Gehlen-con­trolled East­ern Euro­pean fas­cists into the GOP via the Cru­sade For Free­dom (CFF); the piv­otal role of Gehlen/Nazi/CFF per­son­nel in the post­war GOP (Richard Nixon, Ronald Rea­gan, William Casey and George H.W.

BND Employed Gudrun Burwitz, Heinrich Himmler’s Daughter

Hein­rich Himm­ler’s daughter–the late Gudrun Burwitz–worked for the BND, the last iter­a­tion of the remark­able Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion. We have dis­cussed the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion in many pro­grams and posts. Bur­witz con­tin­ued her work for the post­war Stille Hil­fe “Silent Help” SS-sup­port orga­ni­za­tion almost until the end of her life.


FTR #791 They May Not Know Art, but They Know What They Like

Explor­ing past and present, this pro­gram exam­ines a detailed, schol­ar­ly work­ing hypoth­e­sis by authors Simon Dun­stan and Ger­rard Williams con­cern­ing the pos­si­ble escape of Adolf Hitler at the end of World War II. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the oper­a­tion facil­i­tat­ing Hitler’s escape–were Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­o­gy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion. The ‘dis­cov­ery” of a huge cache of Nazi-loot­ed art in Munich in late 2013 is exam­ined against the back­ground of this alleged quid pro quo.


Aktion Feurland: Did Hitler Escape?

A recent book exam­ines the very real pos­si­bil­i­ty that Adolf Hitler may have escaped at the end of World War II–his “sui­cide” a care­ful­ly planned and exe­cut­ed ruse. Fur­ther­more, the book high­lights that gam­bit in the con­text of known col­lu­sion between the Third Reich and the West­ern Allies as the war drew to a close. The authors posit that the key play­ers in the real­iza­tion of Aktion Feurland–the code-name for the operation–were names well known to reg­u­lar lis­ten­ers and users of this web­site: Allen Dulles on the Allied side and Mar­tin Bor­mann for the Third Reich. Cen­tered on a quid pro quo arrange­ment, the authors hypoth­e­size that Aktion Feur­land involved the trans­fer of Nazi tech­nol­o­gy to the U.S. and the West (known as Project Paper­clip) and the sav­ing of price­less works of art from destruc­tion, in return for the safe pas­sage of Hitler, Bor­mann and oth­er top Nazis.


Nazi and SS Roots of Modern German Police Establishment

We’ve high­light­ed the unfold­ing scan­dal sur­round­ing the Ger­man judi­cial estab­lish­men­t’s col­lu­sion with neo-Nazi ele­ments and the gov­ern­men­t’s ongo­ing cov­er-up and destruc­tion of evi­dence in the case. That col­lu­sion appears to be proac­tive, to an extent. A recent book by a for­mer offi­cial of the BKA, the Ger­man fed­er­al police (equiv­a­lent of the FBI) focus­es on the Nazi and SS ori­gins of that agency. (33 of 48 top BKA offi­cials at the agen­cy’s incep­tion had back­grounds as SS lead­ers.) Sup­ple­ment­ed by an inter­nal col­lo­qui­um, the inquiry notes the post­war Nazi net­work­ing with­in the BKA and the effect this appears to have had on post­war Ger­man law enforce­ment, par­tic­u­lar­ly with regard to pol­i­cy toward right-wing extrem­ists, anti-immi­grant xeno­pho­bia and anti-Semi­tism.


FTR #365 The Ties That Bind, Part 4: Geopolitics and 9/11

Eco­nom­ic rela­tion­ships with the Third Reich and the con­tem­po­rary Sau­di pow­er elite trump all mil­i­tary efforts against them, and doom the U.S.


FTR #364 What Do You Want To Be When You Blow Up?

Sui­cide com­man­dos pio­neered by the Third Reich and Fas­cist Italy, as well as the Japan­ese; they spawned the cur­rent genre of that type of war­rior.
