German Corporations Buying Major U.S. Businesses

German corporations are ramping up purchases of key American companies. Always bear in mind the control of corporate Germany by the Bormann capital network, the economic component of a Third Reich gone underground. Fundamental here, as well, is the work of Dorothy Thompson, who (writing of the Third Reich’s plans for global domination in 1940), related that the masters of German industry, finance and politics saw economic control leading automatically to political control.

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.


Rare, Mainstream Press Mention of U.S. Industrial Links to the Third Reich

It is comparatively rare to see articles in the mainstream press mentioning the profound support for Nazi Germany among American industrialists, financiers and political elite. A rare instance is a recent Daily Mail article from the UK. In addition to discussing the links between the Thyssen industrial empire and the Bush family, the broadcast underscores I.G. Farben’s decisive role in the German war economy and its links to the largest American corporations.


What’s Wrong with This Picture?

In the aftermath of the Ukraine coup, wanted posters for former president Yanukovich sprang up all over that country and were liberally distributed in the media. QUICK: If you were going to craft and distribute wanted posters in the United States, would you have the text in Ukrainian?


The Ukraine Has 25% of the World’s Proven Natural Gas Reserves

A factor that is central to the Ukrainian situation is that country’s natural gas reserves. The Ukraine has a quarter of the world’s proven natural gas reserves. Those reserves may well be seen as the answer to the EU’s energy situation. We wonder if the Fischer-Tropsch process might be used to derive motor fuel from that natural gas, as is being done in the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated nation of Qatar.


BND Files on Postwar Gestapo and SS Agents Purged During Ernst Uhrlau’s Directorship

Chief of the Hamburg police during a period in which German intelligence had members of the Hamburg cell of 9/11 hijackers under surveillance, Ernst Uhrlau was appointed special adviser to the Chancellor on intelligence matters in 1998. He became head of the BND in 2005. During Uhrlau’s tenure as BND director, files on BND officers with SS and Gestapo backgrounds were shredded.


FTR #761 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 7: Why the NSA Should Be Spying on Germany and Its Chancellor

This program highlights German/Underground Reich connections to both the 9/11 attacks and the Oklahoma City bombing. Of particular significance is Ernst Uhrlau: chief of Hamburg police at the time German intelligence had the 9/11 cell under surveillance, appointed coordinator of intelligence for the German chancellor in 1998 and head of the BND in 2005. The son of Chancellor Kohl’s chief of staff may have masterminded the Oklahoma City bombing and BND may well have been manipulating Mohamed Atta.


Memo to Merkel: Get a Grip!

It should come as no surprise that the NSA would target Germany as a “hot spot” for electronic surveillance. We call attention to Ernst Uhrlau, chief of police in Hamburg during the time German intelligence had the Hamburg cell of 9/11 hijackers under surveillance, later special adviser to Chancellor Helmut Kohl on intelligence matters (the son of whose chief of staff may have masterminded the Oklahoma City bombing), and eventually head of the BND!

“Danger, Will Robinson!”–Peter Thiel, Robots and the Underground Reich (Be Afraid, Be VERY Afraid!)

In our last post, we noted that both Peter Thiel and the CEO of Palantir Alex Karp had German roots and may well be Underground Reich. A company developing security robots has been capitalized by Peter Thiel and headed by Alex Karp! We also note that the Festo corporation is developing robots. Festo is involved with the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft. Mohamed Atta infiltrated the United States via that organization. In Florida, Atta allegedly associated with the children of powerful German industrialists.


Snowden’s Ride, Part 11: The “Deep Fifth Column”–Old Leaks Shed New Light on the Present

In the past, Nazi sympathizer Robert McCormick of the Chicago Tribune (dubbed by wags “the greatest mind of the 14th century” and pictured at right) published plans for U.S. mobilization for, and fighting in, the Second World War. He also published secret information about the U.S. Navy having cracked Japanese military codes. His source for the “Rainbow Five” leak appears to have been Albert Wedemeyer, who studied at the German military academy in the 1930’s and was appointed by Ronald Reagan as a special military adviser. Might this tell us something about German-born Peter Thiel and his German-educated associate Alex Karp, CEO at Palantir, which appears to have developed the PRISM software?
