FTR #917 Wiki-Fascism, Part #4: Weighing In for the Trumpenkampfverbande (Technocratic Fascism in Action)

In FTR #’s 724, 725, 732, 745 and 755, we have detailed the fascist and far right-wing ideology, associations and politics of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. Lionized by the so-called progressive sector, as well as mainstream media sources like “The New York Times” and “Der Spiegel,” Assange’s true colors and fascist politics and associations have emerged on a larger stage. As the Trump campaign evolves, a major alliance between Trump and the Assange organization has developed. Obviously serving as a dirty-tricks cadre for the GOP, Assange is working hard to destroy Hillary Clinton with leaked documents intended to torpedo her campaign. Assange–not even an American citizen–is manifesting what we termed “technocratic fascism,” arrogating to himself the right to determine the results of the American Presidential election. Quoting from a seminal article by David Golumbia: ” . . . Hack­ers (“civic,” “eth­i­cal,” “white” and “black” hat alike), hack­tivists, Wik­iLeaks fans [and Julian Assange et al–D. E.], Anony­mous “mem­bers,” even Edward Snow­den him­self walk hand-in-hand with Face­book and Google in telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it: the polit­i­cal world is bro­ken, they appear to think (rightly, at least in part), and the solu­tion to that, they think (wrongly, at least for the most part), is for pro­gram­mers to take polit­i­cal mat­ters into their own hands. . . .” Assange is networking with Trump’s dirty tricks operator Roger Stone and resonating with the right-wing GOP/Trump playbook in his activities against Clinton. A major portion of the program highlights the substantive evidence that the DNC hack was NOT done by Russia, but by someone trying to make it look like Russia did it. Assange is now strongly hinting that the source was Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee volunteer who was murdered. Assange is obliquely suggesting that Clinton was behind the murder. (Rich’s family disputes this canard and is urging the public to disregard Assange’s claims.) The WikiLeaks Clinton e-mail dump: ” . . . . The emails include unencrypted, plain-text listings of donor emails addresses, home addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, passport numbers, and credit card information. . . .” Might this have had something to do with the murder of Seth Rich? Program Highlights Include: WikiLeaks’ disclosure of the Social Security and credit card number of Democratic contributors; WikiLeaks anti-Semitic tweet, labeling its critics as Jews; Assange’s oblique endorsement of Trump; Assange’s embrace of a synthesis of Chicago school and Austrian school neo-liberal economic theory; Assange’s operational resonance with Koch brothers associate Peter Schweitzer; review of Assange’s pivotal associations with fascists and anti-Semites like Carl Lundstrom and Joran Jermas (aka “Israel Shamir”); review of David Duke’s links to the WikiLeaks milieu and to Ron Paul (Snowden and Assange’s Presidential candidate of choice); David Duke’s support of Trump; ideological and rhetorical resonance between Ron Paul, Glenn Greenwald and Donald Trump; a bullet-point analysis that connects the dots between elements of this complex analysis.


Was Fred Trump (Donald’s Father) in the Ku Klux Klan?

” . . . . asked if his father had lived at 175-24 Devonshire Road—the address listed for the Fred Trump arrested at the 1927 Klan rally—Donald dismissed the claim as ‘totally false’ . . . . according to at least one archived newspaper clip, Fred Trump . . . lived at 175-24 Devonshire Road: A wedding announcement in the January 22, 1936 issue of the Long Island Daily Press, places Fred Trump at that address, and refers to his wife as ‘Mary MacLeod,’which is Donald Trump’s mother’s maiden name. . . .”


FTR #894 Physicians, Heal Thyselves: Hypocrisy and the Trump Campaign

From the Republican Party to European political and intellectual elites to “The New York Times,” everyone is “shocked, shocked” at the fascistic nature of the Trump candidacy. They shouldn’t be–his candidacy is the direct outgrowth of powerful forces that have been at work in this country for decades. After highlighting two op-ed pieces from the “Times,” accurately noting the virulent fascism at the root of the Trump phenomenon, the broadcast notes that neither Europe, where fascism is on the march once again, nor the American so-called “progressive sector,” which has embraced the “Eddie the Friendly Spook,” Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange are in a position to complain. Snowden, Greenwald, Assange et al embody PRECISELY the same forces percolating at the surface of the Trump waters. Much of the broadcast consists of excerpts of an important new book: “The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government” by David Talbot. In that worthy volume, Talbot chronicles the role of the Dulles brothers and Sullivan and Cromwell in the capitalization of Hitler’s Germany and the cover-up of the Nazi flight capital program, Dulles’s long collaboration with Nazi General Reinhard Gehlen, Gehlen’s pursuit (with Dulles) of the Cold War as a continuation of Hitler’s war against the U.S.S.R., the Dulles/Gehlen collaboration in the formation of the fascist networks known as “Stay Behind/Gladio.” The program concludes with review of the Crusade For Freedom, a Dulles project which culminated in the formation of a Nazi branch of the GOP. Program Highlights Include: the genesis of the Bormann network and its apparent collaboration with the Dulles networks; Prescott Bush, Sr.’s role as the Senate’s liaison with Dulles’s CIA; the roles of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, William Casey and George H.W. Bush with the Crusade For Freedom; “The New York Times” and its own incorporation of Third Reich alumni as part of its collaboration with CIA.


FTR #888 Compendium on Citizen Greenwald: A Shiller for Killers

Drawing together material from previous programs and posts, this broadcast highlights Citizen Greenwald’s role as “a shiller for killers.” QUICK–who do you think said this: “The parade of evils caused by illegal immigration is widely known, . . . illegal immigration wreaks havoc economically, socially, and culturally; makes a mockery of the rule of law; and is disgraceful just on basic fairness grounds alone. . . . unmanageably endless hordes of people pour over the border in numbers far too large to assimilate, and who consequently have no need, motivation or ability to assimilate. . . [they pose a threat to] middle-class suburban voters.” Donald Trump, right? Wrong–it was Glenn Greenwald. Beginning with discussion of Greenwald’s role in suppressing journalistic coverage of, and basic freedom of speech about, Big Tobacco’s lethal marketing practices, we note his role in the Wachtell Lipton suit. That suit forced the cancellation of a “Frontline” broadcast and muzzled key whistleblowers from even discussing the documents revealing cigarette manufacturers’ sinister activity. Once in private practice, Greenwald continued his work as a shiller for killers, running legal interference for the “leaderless resistance” strategy by protecting Nazi killers against civil suits and murder charges. In addition to defending Nazi leader Matthew Hale against a suit brought by victims of one of his murderous foot soldiers, Greenwald defended him when he solicited the murder of Judge Joan Lefkow. Judge Lefkow’s husband and mother were shot to death in her home, after one of Hale’s followers posted the judge’s home address, a map to her home and pictures of her family online. Apparently Citizen Greenwald’s concern for internet privacy did not extent to the unfortunate Judge Lefkow. Greenwald also defended the National Alliance and other anti-immigration groups against a suit that held them liable for beating and stabbing attacks on Mexican day laborers. The National Alliance publishes books specifically intended to motivate racial violence. Program Highlights Include: the anti-immigrant views and rhetoric of Greenwald’s clients and associates; his role shilling for the Muslim Brotherhood; Greenwald’s violation of ethics when taping witnesses; Greenwald’s association with Nazi Andrew Auernheimer; Greenwald’s co-hosting of an event with neo-Confederate advocate Jacob Hornberger, as well as Ron Paul; Greenwald’s intellectual championing of virulently “anti-immigrant” former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo.


FTR #882 The Perfect “Sturm”: Machiavelli 3.0 and the Rise of Global Fascism

When “The New York Times” takes note of the rise of fascism in America, you know things are getting very bad indeed. On successive days (Friday, 12/11 and Saturday, 12/12 of 2015), the Times featured two op-ed columns in each edition discussing the rise of fascism in Europe and the United States. Furthermore, one column noted the fixation by ISIS, the Hindu nationalist fascists in power in India and others on a mythical, idealized past. The broadcast recaps Peter Levenda’s analysis of the role of atavism in fueling fascist ideology. Longing for a mythical, idealized past free of the entanglements of the present, fascists of various types scapegoat those whom they view as having polluted society. Program Highlights Include: Donald Trump’s association with Helene Von Damm (protege of Eichmann superior and CIA officer Otto von Bolschwing); Trump’s association with Joseph McCarthy aide Roy Cohn; Trump’s association with former Axis spy Norman Vincent Peale; the assistance given Joe McCarthy’s witch hunts by a U.S. intelligence network drawing on the skills of SS officers and led by Karl Wolff (Heinrich Himmler’s personal adjutant.)


FTR #856 Libertarianism, White Supremacy and Leaderless Resistance

This program revisits information concerning the relationship between outright fascists and racists grouped under the libertarian political banner and the “leaderless resistance” strategy. This libertarian/fascist nexus embodies the political forces with which Edward Snowden is allied. With Dylann Roof’s apparent execution of the Charleston church massacre and other, less-publicized incidents, we have experienced the ravages of killers operating as “lone wolves”, inspired by, and acting in concert with, ideological vectors disseminated through the internet and other media. Snowden political idol Ron Paul and leaking journalist of choice Glenn Greenwald are key players in the libertarian/fascist milieu, with Ron Paul and his racist newsletters having codified much of the violence we have seen since, and which inspired Dylann Roof and others. Glenn Greenwald ran legal interference for the leaderless resistance strategy, obtaining rulings that free Nazi and white supremacist advocates from possible civil liability for inspiring acts like the Charleston massacre. Among the libertarian/fascist activists on the scene is Jeffrey Tucker, who helped write Ron Paul’s newsletters and is listed as a founding member of the League of the South. An apparent influence on Dylann Roof was Nazi leader and fiction author Harold Covington, who espouses the goal of establishing the Pacific Nortrhwest as an “Aryan” homeland for Nazis and white supremacists. Covington’s novels, like those of Greenwald client the National Alliance, are intended as “instructional” material. Program Highlights Include: the burning of numerous African-American churches in the wake of the Charleston massacre; the dismissal of any notion that the burnings constitute acts of terror; review of the 16th Baptist Church bombing and connections between that event and the assassination of Martin Luther King; Nazi and white supremacist activity in Oregon; a German industrialist named Folker’s purchase of vast amounts of land in the Pacific Northwest; Folker’s links to Rick Boehlke, an apparent economic protege; Boehlke’s significant operational links to Rudi Dekkers and the milieu of Mohammed Atta in Florida; Lafayette (LA) John Houser’s espousal of Nazi and white supremacist ideology.


What the New York Times Didn’t Tell You about Robert (Bob) Whitaker

A recent New York Times Op-ed piece mentioned that Robert (Bob) Whitaker was running for Vice President on a white supremacist platform in 2016. What the piece (predictably) failed to note was that Robert (Bob) Whitaker held a sensitive position in the Reagan White House.

FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of several interviews with Peter Levenda about his important new book “The Hitler Legacy,” this program highlights the evolution of elements which figure into the development of the post-war Nazi underground. At the end of the First World War, the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia and abortive Marxist uprisings in Germany and elsewhere in Europe infused the power elite in the U.S. with a paranoid ideological terror of a global “Jewish-Marxist” conspiracy. Combined with fear of Catholic and Jewish immigrants and their effect on American society, this ideological paranoia fused with a social Darwinism that found its expression in eugenics–a pseudo-intellectual doctrine that sought the promotion of “desirable” social and ethnic types and the suppression and/or elimination of “inferior” racial types. Seeing Germany as the point element in the struggle against world Marxism, individuals and political parties sought to ally with German fascists to bring fascism to the U.S. This fascist Fifth Column included political groups ranging from the Ku Klux Klan to the Silver Shirts of William Dudley Pelley, as well as the prototypical right-wing talk show host Father Charles Coughlin, “the Radio Priest.” Coughlin’s efforts were subsidized by Third Reich intelligence. Financed by financiers and industrialists who supported fascism, this Fifth Column attempted to kill and/or overthrow FDR on several occasions. In the Middle East, the concept of global jihad was developed by German archaelogist Max von Oppenheim during the First World War. Envisioning the world’s Muslims as proxy warriors against the Entente Powers of Britain, France and Russia, von Oppenheim created the template for contemporary Islamic fascism and jihadism. Following the division of the former Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began manifesting belief in an international global conspiracy involving Jews and the European colonial powers that resonated with the American power elite’s idological anxieties.


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 #829 Fireside Chat about Eddie the Friendly Spook and the Ukraine Crisis

A controversy ensued when it emerged that House majority whip Steve Scalise had attended a meeting of David Duke’s European-American Unity Organization. The newly-seated GOP-dominated congress which Scalise will help to guide began attacking Social Security on its very first day. Specifically, the GOP began attacking the Social Security disability program. These developments serve as a point of entry into our discussion. Snowden is an advocate of eliminating Social Security and the OUN/B fascists running Ukraine are engaging in a similar program to force those in Eastern Ukraine to stop their attempts at secession. The elements of the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” are networked with Duke, as well. Snowden’s leaking journalist of choice, Nazi fellow-traveler Glenn Greenwald, has been financed by Pierre Omidyar of Ebay, who has also financed the Ukraine coup. The program notes many other elements of confluence between the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” and the Ukrainian coup. The Snowden/WikiLeaks helped to deep-six Obama’s “reboot with Russia” and also alienate many of the young, idealistic voters who had supported him in 2008, thereby helping to elect the 114th Congress.
