FTR #887 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The ongo­ing occu­pa­tion of an Ore­gon wildlife pre­serve in Ore­gon by para­mil­i­tary forces led by Ammon Bundy (son of Cliv­en Bundy) may seem far removed from the gild­ed realms in which the Koch Broth­ers move. They may also appear to be of an entire­ly dif­fer­ent polit­i­cal stripe from the likes of Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange. That is not the case. In fact, the “Bundy­ists” are real­iz­ing the agen­da of the Wise Use move­ment and the Koch broth­ers, both advo­cates of ced­ing con­trol of fed­er­al lands to local con­trol, in order that cor­po­rate inter­ests such as tim­ber, min­ing and cat­tle ranch­ing can use the ter­ri­to­ry for their own use and prof­it. By the same token, the likes of Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange have arro­gat­ed to them­selves the use, con­trol and dis­sem­i­na­tion of sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion that was not theirs to own or dis­trib­ute. David Golum­bia not­ed the atti­tude of “coders” such as Snow­den, Assange and “hack­tivists ” . . . the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it . . . mem­bers of demo­c­ra­tic poli­ties have no choice but to accept them hav­ing that role.” Turn­ing to tur­moil in Europe, the recent assaults on women by Mid­dle East­ern immi­grants in Ger­man, Finnish and oth­er cities on the con­ti­nent have fueled the rise of fas­cist groups, mint­ing valu­able polit­i­cal coinage from the assaults. Some observers com­pared a recent ram­page in Leipzig with the 1938 Kristall­nacht pogrom. The broad­cast con­cludes with an overview of P‑2 Lodge grand­mas­ter Licio Gel­li, the recent­ly deceased fas­cist who pro­found­ly influ­enced events on three con­ti­nents. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Fred C. Koch’s con­struc­tion of an oil refin­ery for Hitler; Ex-CIA offi­cer and author Robert Baer’s belief that Hitler escaped Ger­many at the end of the war; review of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Fox News host Andrew Napoli­tano and Snow­den Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of choice Ron Paul at a lib­er­tar­i­an stu­dents con­fer­ence; review of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Edward Snow­den at that same con­fer­ence; review of Carl Lund­strom’s financ­ing of the anti-immi­grant Swe­den Demo­c­rat fas­cist par­ty and his fund­ing of the Pirate Bay web­site that host­ed Wik­iLeaks.


FTR #846 Interview (#9) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This ninth inter­view fills in the details con­cern­ing a mys­te­ri­ous cast of char­ac­ters in Indone­sia who were inves­ti­gat­ing the late pres­i­dent Sukarno’s Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Fund. That fund appears to have derived from large amounts of World War II wealth stolen by Japan and Ger­many. Dr. Sos­ro Huso­do alleged in a book that a mys­te­ri­ous Nazi named Dr. Anton Poch was actu­al­ly Hitler. That alle­ga­tion has nev­er been proved, how­ev­er the sto­ries of Poch, Huso­do, Dr. Edi­son Damanik and an Indone­sian arms deal­er named Soeryo Goer­it­no are indica­tive of a mas­sive, ongo­ing cov­er-up of the polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic dynam­ics under­ly­ing their sit­u­a­tions. Expand­ing the scope of the inquiry to the cap­i­tal flows ass­so­ci­at­ed with the Third Reich, its post­war under­ground phase and insti­tu­tions asso­ci­at­ed with and/or evolv­ing from Nazism, the pro­grams sets forth a num­ber of con­sid­er­a­tions: the financ­ing of the post­war Ger­man eco­nom­ic mir­a­cle by Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions; the frus­tra­tion of the de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of cor­po­rate Ger­many by the Third Reich’s promi­nent Amer­i­can eco­nom­ic back­ers; the enor­mous scale of the Nazi eco­nom­ic dias­po­ra; the role of Klaus Bar­bie and his “Fiancees of Death” in ODESSA-relat­ed oper­a­tions; Colo­nia Dig­nidad and its role in laun­der­ing ODESSA mon­ey.


FTR #806 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Con­tin­u­ing our updates of pre­vi­ous sto­ries and cov­er­age of arti­cles that sur­faced dur­ing the hia­tus in For The Record pro­duc­tion, we present infor­ma­tion that will serve as the foun­da­tion of future–as well as past inquiries. Begin­ning with the Boston Marathon bomb­ing, we note that the Tsar­naev broth­ers appear to have had [as yet unspec­i­fied] help in mak­ing their bombs. In addi­tion, the pro­gram high­lights stun­ning infor­ma­tion bout the 1980 Munich Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing, indi­cat­ing com­plic­i­ty by Ger­man gov­ern­ment offi­cials in the event, as well as evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries lead­ing in the direc­tion of Klaus Bar­bi­e’s Brides­grooms of Death mer­ce­nary group. After high­light­ing attempts by Hen­ry Kissinger and Richard Nixon to use Under­ground Reich ele­ments to desta­bi­lize the Ger­man gov­ern­ment of Willy Brandt, the broad­cast sets forth the Euro­pean Space Agen­cy’s employ­ment of Project HAARP devel­op­er Bernard “Ben” East­lund to devel­op tech­nol­o­gy osten­si­bly designed to neu­tral­ize tor­na­does. Tor­na­does do not occur in Europe and crit­ics have stat­ed that the tech­nol­o­gy might actu­al­ly make tor­na­does more destruc­tive.


“The City of Elevation” Comes into View Once Again: Muslim Brotherhood Moves Headquarters to Graz, Austria

An inter­est­ing devel­op­ment con­cerns the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood’s relo­ca­tion of their head­quar­ters to Graz, Aus­tria and three oth­er unnamed Euro­pean cities. Graz was a city that enjoyed Hitler’s favor and was an epi­cen­ter for post­war Under­ground Reich activ­i­ty. Mus­lim Broth­er­hood lynch­pin and appar­ent for­mer Third Reich intel­li­gence agent Youssef Nada resided there in the 1960’s, as did a num­ber of oth­er Broth­er­hood activists. the Schwarzeneg­ger fam­i­ly also had links to the Graz area.


Reagan’s Nazis

After the death of Mar­garet Thatch­er, Amer­i­cans are being treat­ed to hagiogra­phies of her polit­i­cal ally Ronald Rea­gan. Rea­gan’s admin­is­tra­tion was a front for the Under­ground Reich, incor­po­rat­ing the GOP Nazi “eth­nics” who had been import­ed into the US fol­low­ing World War II. Rea­gan, him­self, had a long his­to­ry of asso­ci­a­tion with unsa­vory ele­ments, includ­ing orga­nized crime.


Roberto Calvi Linked to Pablo Escobar

It is now rel­a­tive­ly well known that the late Pablo Esco­bar and the asso­ci­at­ed Medellin Car­tel were heav­i­ly involved with the Iran-Con­tra cocaine traf­fic of the 1980’s. Press accounts have now sur­faced in Italy and the UK about Esco­bar hav­ing banked some of his pro­ceeds with Rober­to Calvi’s Ban­co Ambrosiano. Found mur­dered in Lon­don in late 1982, Calvi was the advis­er to the IOR, hav­ing suc­ceed­ed the late Michele Sin­dona in that regard. (Like Calvi, Sin­dona was a mem­ber of the Licio Gel­li’s P‑2 Lodge.) Dis­clo­sure of the Calvi/Escobar link sug­gests anoth­er link between the Iran-Con­tra affair and the Stibam arms for drugs ring that heav­i­ly over­lapped the milieu of the P‑2, Vat­i­can Bank and the Ban­co Ambrosiano.


Striking Contrast between German Presidential Candidates

Ger­man pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates a study in contrasts–one a com­mit­ted anti-fas­cist, the oth­er sound­ing revi­sion­ist themes about World War II.
