FTR #883 The Times They Have A’ Changed: JFK and the Steel Crisis of 1962

On the cusp of a new year–a Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion year at that–analysis of Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s han­dling of the steel cri­sis of 1962 illus­trates just how far we have descended in the 50-plus years since his death. After bro­ker­ing an agree­ment between the United Steel­work­ers union and United States Steel aimed at hold­ing down infla­tion, Kennedy was blind­sided by United States Steel, act­ing in con­cert with other large steel­mak­ers and, behind them, the lumi­nar­ies of cor­po­rate Amer­ica. Whereas the union rank and file embraced a con­tract encom­pass­ing lower wages, U.S. Steel promptly announced a 3.5 per­cent price increase. Kennedy used the full force of the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment against U.S. Steel, forc­ing roll­back of the price increase. This earned Kennedy the hatred of big busi­ness. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Henry Luce’s “For­tune” magazine’s pub­li­ca­tion of an edi­to­r­ial fore­shad­ow­ing JFK’s mur­der; big busi­ness’ view of JFK as a quasi-communist; the vig­or­ous action taken by Robert Kennedy’s Depart­ment of Jus­tice against the big steel mak­ers; JFK’s pub­lic exco­ri­a­tion of the lead­ers of Big Steel as ene­mies of the peo­ple; JFK’s re-direction of defense con­tracts to smaller steel firms that had not raised prices.


Nazis in Ukraine, Hypocrisy Elsewhere, Including Israel

Address­ing the Knes­set (Israel’s par­lia­ment), Ukrain­ian pres­i­dent Petro Poroshenko recently gave a pro-forma apol­ogy for the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Ukraini­ans in the Holo­caust. Israel is among the coun­tries that glossed over Poroshenko’s hon­or­ing of the OUN/B exe­cu­tion­ers at Babi Yar (right). The recent elec­tion of a Nazi mayor in a Ukrain­ian town should sur­prise no one.

FTR #876 The OUN/B and the Assassination of JFK

High­light­ing the links between the OUN/B and the assas­si­na­tion of JFK, the broad­cast under­scores the dis­in­for­ma­tion link­ing the alleged KGB assas­si­na­tion of Stephan Ban­dera with Lee Har­vey Oswald. Sup­pos­edly trained as an assas­sin by the same KGB units that allegedly killed Ban­dera, Oswald was “painted red” in order to deflect blame for the assas­si­na­tion onto the Soviet Union. The dis­in­for­ma­tion link­ing the Ban­dera assas­si­na­tion with the killing of Kennedy was largely dis­sem­i­nated by ele­ments that were to coa­lesce as the World Anti-Communist League a few years later. Both the OUN/B ele­ments in the United States and key fig­ures in the cover-up of the JFK assas­si­na­tion track back to the Cru­sade For Free­dom, a covert oper­a­tion that pre­cip­i­tated the for­ma­tion of a Nazi branch of the GOP. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Sen­a­tor Thomas Dodd’s role in spread­ing the KGB killed Kennedy dis­in­for­ma­tion; Dodd’s links to the Amer­i­can Secu­rity Coun­cil; the role of OUN/B func­tionary Lev Dobri­an­sky in dis­sem­i­nat­ing the Oswald/KGB/Bandera killing dis­in­for­ma­tion; the roles of Ronald Rea­gan, Allen Dulles, Richard Nixon and George H.W. Bush in both the Cru­sade For Free­dom activ­i­ties and the events in Dal­las in 1963.


FTR #871 Daniel Hopsicker Rides Again!

Hap­pily recov­ered from major heart surgery, heroic inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist Daniel Hop­sicker rejoins our air­waves to recount some of his inves­ti­ga­tions, old and new. We begin with Daniel’s reportage on Jeb Bush’s role in cov­er­ing up the milieu of Huff­man Avi­a­tion and Mohamed Atta’s activ­i­ties in South Florida. Daniel’s inves­ti­ga­tions into intelligence-community-connected drug smug­gling began with his inves­ti­ga­tion into Barry Seal. Seal’s involve­ment with spook activ­i­ties appar­ently began with his mem­ber­ship in a Civil Air Patrol unit com­manded by CIA offi­cer David Fer­rie, a unit that included Lee Har­vey Oswald. Much of the pro­gram was spent high­light­ing some of Daniel’s over­lap­ping sto­ries about the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity and the drug traf­fic. Pro­gram high­lights include: the role of H.L. Hunt’s grand­daugh­ter in the activ­i­ties sur­round­ing what Daniel terms “Cocaine One;” the hero­ism of sev­eral Mex­i­can women who are telling the truth about the involve­ment of the Mex­i­can gov­ern­ment with the car­tels; the bust of a major drug smug­gling flight on prop­erty owned by socialite Paris Hilton; a con­stel­la­tion of appar­ent drug smug­gling activ­i­ties sur­round­ing actor Vince Vaugh’s mother.


FTR #865 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and Unholy Alliance

Rat­line high­lights the flight of a mys­te­ri­ous Nazi using the alias Georg Anton Poch. Iden­ti­fied as Hitler in a book pub­lished in Indone­sia, Poch was cer­tainly some­one of great impor­tance, though not nec­es­sar­ily Hitler. His odyssey sheds light on the Vat­i­can escape net­works known col­lec­tively as “The Rat­line.” Who­ever he was, “Poch,” like so many Nazis, found suc­cor in the Vat­i­can. A Croa­t­ian priest–Father Draganovic–was one the prime movers of the Rat­line The story of the Rat­line and the Vatican’s oper­a­tional sanc­tion­ing of the butch­ers of the Vatican-backed Croa­t­ian Ustachi casts a dif­fer­ent his­tor­i­cal light on recent events. Pope Francis’s visit to the United States has dom­i­nated the news cycle, with some cov­er­age going to the con­tro­versy over his can­on­iza­tion of Father Juniper Serra, regarded as a bru­tal oppres­sor by Native Amer­i­can archivists. What has received no sub­stan­tive cov­er­age is the pend­ing beat­i­fi­ca­tion of Arch­bishop Stepinac, a mem­ber of the Ustachi par­lia­ment dur­ing World War II. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the stew­ard­ship of the main Ustachi con­cen­tra­tion camp Jasen­o­vac by Father Fil­ipovic, a Fran­cis­can priest; Fr. Filipovic’s mur­der­ing of Ser­bian chil­dren with his bare hands; Oper­a­tion Bern­hard, a key Nazi coun­ter­feit­ing oper­a­tion; the many his­tor­i­cal out­growths of Bern­hard, includ­ing the oper­a­tions of the Rat­line; the use of Stepinac’s church to stash Nazi war loot; Ger­ald Posner’s “point” role in lead­ing the Bormann-inspired dis­cred­i­ta­tion of Ladis­las Farago.


FTR #864 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and Other Books

Immi­gra­tion has dom­i­nated the news recently, with the flood of refugees from the wars in the Mid­dle East over­whelm­ing Euro­pean infra­struc­ture as the phe­nom­e­non dom­i­nates polit­i­cal debate. Don­ald Trump cap­i­tal­izes on anti-immigrant xeno­pho­bia to lead the field of pre­sump­tive GOP Pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates. In The Hitler Legacy, Peter noted anti-immigrant sen­ti­ment and xeno­pho­bia as part of “The Hitler Legacy.” Turn­ing to what might be described as the “pre­quel” to The Hitler Legacy, we high­light “Rat­line.” Deal­ing with the story of the mys­te­ri­ous Dr. Anton Poch, we ana­lyze the dis­ap­pear­ance of Adolf Hitler. One of the main focal points of dis­cus­sion con­cerns the “offi­cial” ver­sion of Hitler’s death is The Last Days of Hitler by Hugh Trevor-Roper. Trevor-Roper was an agent for MI6 (British intel­li­gence) at the time and the writ­ing and pub­li­ca­tion of his book was, in and of itself, an intel­li­gence operation–a “psy-op” called Oper­a­tion Nurs­ery. Pro­gram High­lights Include: a com­par­i­son of Oper­a­tion Nurs­ery to the War­ren Com­mis­sion and its report; dis­cus­sion of Paul Lev­erkuhn, a Nazi spy who was the head of the Euro­pean Union when he attended the first Bilder­berg meeting.


FTR #845 Interview (#8) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Pick­ing up where FTR #844 left off, this pro­gram exam­ines devel­op­ments in Indone­sia after the 1965 CIA coup that deposed Sukarno. An appar­ent par­tic­i­pant in an unsuc­cess­ful 1958 attempt against Sukarno was Lee Har­vey Oswald. Before tack­ling the bulk of the Indone­sia mate­r­ial, Peter notes that the sup­posed “Com­mu­nist” Oswald actu­ally had con­nec­tions to Nazi ele­ments. After an encap­su­la­tion of the Japan­ese Golden Lily pro­gram that looted much of Asia, the pro­gram sets forth some of the mys­ter­ies that unfold in con­nec­tion with the dis­po­si­tion of Sukarno’s “Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund.” Appar­ently com­prised of both Golden Lily trea­sure and war loot trans­ported to the Asia by the Third Reich, the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund has defied efforts by Sukarno fam­ily mem­bers and asso­ciates to obtain some of the wealth. Among the cast of char­ac­ters wind­ing through the mys­te­ri­ous cor­ri­dors of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund inves­tiga­tive maze are: a mys­te­ri­ous Dr. Poch, alleged in an Indone­sian best seller by Dr. Susro Husodo to have been Adolf Hitler; the pro­fes­sional frus­tra­tion and mys­te­ri­ous demise of Dr. Edi­son Damanik, who attempted to obtain some of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund loot; arms dealer Soeryo Goer­itno, who suf­fered a dis­abling stroke or seizure when he attempted to nav­i­gate the per­ilous waters of the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund and its tributaries.


Reflections on the Film “Selma” and the Recent Martin Luther King Holiday

The film “Selma” depicts the 16th Street Bap­tist Church bomb­ing in Selma, Alabama. In AFA #8, we note pro­found evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries between that event and the assas­si­na­tion of Dr. Mar­tin Luther King. Links between King’s mur­der and those of Robert F. Kennedy and his brother are dis­cussed in AFA #9. Oth­ers are cov­ered in The Guns of Novem­ber, Part IV. Even as peo­ple cel­e­brate the remark­able Dr. King’s life, our soci­ety man­i­fests what the late play­wright Arthur Miller warned against in “The Death of a Sales­man”, speak­ing through Willie Loman’s widow: “You can’t just eat the orange and throw away the peel.” Nei­ther his friends, nor those who pro­fess to honor him, will break their silence about the cir­cum­stances of his death, despite the exten­sive body of infor­ma­tion on the pub­lic record doc­u­ment­ing a con­spir­acy behind his mur­der.

FTR #828 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

As the title indi­cates this pro­gram brings up to date a num­ber of sto­ries cov­ered in the past and intro­duces some new top­ics of dis­cus­sion. The top­ics cov­ered include: JFK’s 1963 attempts at nor­mal­iz­ing rela­tions with Cuba; new infor­ma­tion cast­ing doubt on the “lone nut” the­ory of the 2001 anthrax attacks (which fin­gered Bruce Ivins as a “lone nut” per­pe­tra­tor); Span­ish Prime Min­is­ter Mar­i­ano Rajoy’s sup­pres­sion of polit­i­cal dis­sent, echo­ing the poli­cies of Fran­cisco Franco; a Catholic mass held to honor the mem­ory of the mur­der­ous World War II Ustachi leader Ante Pavelic; the global eco­nomic elites’ pur­suit of the same eco­nomic poli­cies that drove peo­ple into the arms of fas­cism in the 1930’s; Ayn Rand’s role in inves­ti­gat­ing the 1940’s movie “It’s a Won­der­ful Life” as pos­si­ble crypto-Communist pro­pa­ganda; the GOP’s imple­men­ta­tion of fraud­u­lent “dynamic scor­ing” eco­nomic eval­u­a­tion; the­o­ret­i­cal physi­cist Stephen Hawking’s warn­ing that the devel­op­ment of Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence could threaten the exis­tence of human­ity; Mr. Emory’s 1995 warn­ing that the devel­op­ment of Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence could threaten the exis­tence of humanity.
