Dr. Michael Baden and the Michael Brown Autopsy

There is an old adage among the prac­ti­tion­ers of the clan­des­tine arts: “Give us the coro­ner, we’ll con­trol the city.” It is in that con­text that we note that Dr. Michael Baden per­formed the pri­vate autopsy on Michael Brown’s body. It was Baden who endorsed the unten­able “Magic Bul­let The­ory” for the House Select Committee’s inves­ti­ga­tion of the assas­si­na­tion of JFK. We cer­tainly don’t have enough infor­ma­tion to state with­out qual­i­fi­ca­tion that an “op” is unfold­ing in the Michael Brown case, but that is a pos­si­bil­ity that should always be eval­u­ated when Baden turns up in the mix. All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 10/2/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash drive. Dave offers his pro­grams and arti­cles for free–your sup­port is very much appreciated.


FTR #821 Continuity of Government, the JFK Assassination and Covert Operations

Ana­lyz­ing the role of net­works orig­i­nally set up to per­pet­u­ate and sus­tain gov­ern­ment in the event of nuclear war, this pro­gram high­lights the role of Con­ti­nu­ity of Gov­ern­ment (COG) ele­ments in a num­ber of domes­tic and/or ille­gal covert oper­a­tions. With its own com­mu­ni­ca­tions net­work, the COG has proved an effec­tive vehi­cle for side­step­ping nor­mal oper­a­tional chan­nels in order to real­ize nefar­i­ous aims. The COG-related net­works and indi­vid­u­als have fig­ured promi­nently in aspects of the JFK assas­si­na­tion, Water­gate, the Octo­ber Sur­prise, the Iran-Contra scan­dal and events pur­suant to the 9/11 attacks. Dick Cheney and Don­ald Rums­feld are two of the promi­nent fig­ures in the COG net­works and have been present in the Nixon/Ford, Reagan/Bush, Clin­ton and George W. Bush administrations.


FTR #820 Interview with Ed Haslam about Ebola and the New Edition of “Dr. Mary’s Monkey”

Revis­it­ing the heroic Ed Haslam, we high­light new points of infor­ma­tion from his book “Dr. Mary’s Mon­key,” as well as set­ting forth infor­ma­tion about Ebola, indi­cat­ing that the offi­cial ver­sion of the evo­lu­tion of that deadly dis­ease is badly skewed. Key points of infor­ma­tion in Ed’s new edi­tion include the J. Edgar Hoover’s order to pre­clude FBI involve­ment in the inves­ti­ga­tion of Dr. Mary Sherman’s mur­der; Meyer Lan­sky aide Chauncey Holt’s links to Lee Har­vey Oswald, the CIA and Oper­a­tion Mon­goose (the Agency’s anti-Castro effort); Stan­ley Stumpf’s pos­si­ble role in mov­ing Dr. Mary Sherman’s body; the War­ren Commission’s omis­sion of Oswald’s signed time cards from the Reilly Cof­fee Com­pany; Vic­to­ria and Owen Hawes’ account of Oswald’s vis­its to a neigh­bor of Dr. Mary Sher­man and the pos­si­ble dis­posal of bio-waste in the neighbor’s toi­let; crime scene pho­tos of Dr. Mary Sherman’d corpse that dis­prove the offi­cial ver­sion of her killing; the CIA’s com­plete redac­tion of “Crown Jewel #1″–the Agency’s activ­i­ties between the late 1950’s and 1964.


FTR #809 Days of Future Passed: All in the [Manson] Family?

It has been dis­closed that phone taps on con­victed Man­son Fam­ily killer Tex Wat­son have infor­ma­tion that may relate to 12 addi­tional mur­ders. Por­trayed by the media as a bunch of way­ward hip­pies, the Man­son group, in fact, had par­tic­i­pa­tion by neo-Nazi ele­ments, as well as links to the intel­li­gence com­mu­nity. One won­ders who the other vic­tims might have been? Might one of them have been Marina Habe, daugh­ter of Hans Habe, an anti-fascist activist and jour­nal­ist who worked for U.S. intel­li­gence dur­ing World War II and afterward–something that would not have sat well with the Under­ground Reich. One case that has more to it than reaches the eye is the mur­der of Sharon Tate. Deeply involved with Robert F. Kennedy’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign in the Los Ange­les area, Tate had been present at a din­ner shortly before Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion at which he report­edly said that he would re-open the inves­ti­ga­tion into his brother’s mur­der after get­ting into the White House.


FTR #801 The Sportin’ Life

With much of the human race foam­ing at the mouth over the World Cup com­pe­ti­tion cur­rently under­way in Brazil, we pause to note the pro­found con­nec­tions between the world of sport, inter­na­tional fas­cism and orga­nized crime. After high­light­ing fas­cist soc­cer fans in atten­dance in Brazil, the pro­gram notes the cesspool that is the Inter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee, imprinted with fas­cist par­tic­i­pa­tion by Juan Anto­nio Sama­ranch, Fran­cisco Franco’s for­mer Min­is­ter of Sport. The 1972 Olympics mas­sacre in Munich fea­tured pos­si­ble com­plic­ity by ele­ments of the Ger­man gov­ern­ment and the Under­ground Reich. The pro­gram con­cludes by look­ing at Amer­i­can orga­nized crime links to the milieu of the NFL and the prob­a­ble Mob fix­ing of Bobby Riggs and Bil­lie Jean King’s “Bat­tle of the Sexes.”


The Fires This Time

Robert Parry notes the OUN/B her­itage of Swo­boda and Pravy Sek­tor in the cur­rent Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment, cor­re­lat­ing that Nazi her­itage with the lethal fire­bomb­ing of pro-Russian demon­stra­tors in the Black Sea port city of Odessa. Appar­ently per­pe­trated by a street-fighting con­tin­gent act­ing in accor­dance with the tac­ti­cal prin­ci­ples of both Pravy Sek­tor (at right) and Swo­boda, the fire­bomb­ing is rem­i­nis­cent of the mas­sacre of res­i­dents of the city of Huta Pien­acka in Ukraine by the Gali­cian Divi­sion (14th Waf­fen SS.) In addi­tion, Parry notes an OUN/B involve­ment with the Rea­gan administration’s U.S. Infor­ma­tion Agency and Radio Lib­erty, col­or­ing broad­casts in the 1980’s in a pro-Nazi fashion.


FTR #789 RFK Assassination Reopened

Robert Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion was not the work of a “lone nut,” any more than were the killings of his brother, Mar­tin Luther King and many oth­ers. Robert Kennedy was dis­patched by the same forces that killed his brother. The assas­si­na­tion of Robert F. Kennedy has been mov­ing toward a for­mal re-opening. In addi­tion to new sci­en­tific infor­ma­tion con­firm­ing that more than eight shots were fired (Sirhan’s gun only held eight), that the “girl in the polka dot dress” was real and indi­ca­tions that Sirhan was indeed hypno-programmed, a wit­ness has come for­ward claim­ing that there was more than one gun­man and that her pre­vi­ous tes­ti­mony was distorted.


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.


FTR #778 The OUN/B File, Part 2

This pro­gram details more of the back­ground of the OUN/B, a Ukrain­ian fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion whose polit­i­cal heirs are front and cen­ter in the Ukrain­ian cri­sis. After set­ting forth the role of Sen­a­tor Thomas Dodd in the dis­sem­i­na­tion of the dis­in­for­ma­tion con­cern­ing links between the sup­posed KGB assas­sin Oswald and the alleged Soviet mur­der of OUN/B leader Ban­dera, the pro­gram high­lights the evo­lu­tion of the OUN/B dur­ing the Cold War. After becom­ing a major ele­ment of the GOP’s eth­nic out­reach orga­ni­za­tion, the OUN/B played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the Free Con­gress Foun­da­tion and, through that rela­tion­ship, the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Soviet Union. After the breakup of the USSR, Yka­te­rina Chumachenko–a key player in the OUN/B’s top U.S. front group and also Ronald Reagan’s Deputy Direc­tor of Pub­lic Liaison–married Vik­tor Yuschenko, the ben­e­fi­ciary of the “Orange Revolution.”


FTR #777 The OUN/B File, Part 1

This is the first of two broad­casts detail­ing the back­ground of the OUN/B, a Ukrain­ian fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion allied with the Third Reich dur­ing the Sec­ond World War. The OUN/B con­tin­ued their oper­a­tions in coop­er­a­tion with ele­ments of CIA and West­ern intel­li­gence dur­ing the Cold War. Staffing SS, Gestapo and Ein­satz­grup­pen ranks dur­ing World War II, the OUN/B was a sig­nif­i­cant par­tic­i­pant in the hor­rors of the East­ern Front and the Holo­caust. As World War II drew to a close, the Third Reich formed guerilla war­fare units, which con­tin­ued the com­bat behind the lines of the advanc­ing Red Army. The OUN/B was a piv­otal ele­ment of that guerilla cadre. Con­tin­u­ing their war­fare until the early 1950’s, the OUN/B’s activ­i­ties were sup­ported by the CIA and its sub­sidiary ele­ment the OPC (Office of Pol­icy Coor­di­na­tion) under Frank Wis­ner. The sec­ond side of the pro­gram details the assas­si­na­tion of OUN/B leader Stephan Ban­dera. Blamed on the KGB, the killing was–in all likelihood–performed by BND or other Under­ground Reich-connected ele­ments. Much of the broad­cast cen­ters on dis­in­for­ma­tion (dis­sem­i­nated by W.A.C.C.FL.-related ele­ments. ) point­ing to Lee Har­vey Oswald as a KGB-trained assassin.
