FTR #1003 School Shootings and Fascist Groups, Part 2

This is the second program dealing with school shootings and the role fascist groups play in the development of such incidents. The broadcast begins with a brief summary and recap of key points of discussion from FTR #1002. They include:

1.-Patrick Purdy’s apparent links to Aryan Nations.
2.-Purdy’s anti-Asian xenophobia, deeming that Americans were being edged out in their own homeland.
3.-The Order’s attempts at developing mind control techniques.
4.-Purdy’s involvement with the Unification Church.
5.-The profound effect of school shootings on both parents and students of affected institutions. School shootings fundamentally undermine peoples’ sense of comfort and create an anxiety conducive to the implementation of totalitarianism.
6.-The provision of Oliver North’s martial law contingency plans to use paramilitary right-wingers as federal deputies.

Discussion proceeds to the Florida high school shooting. Mort Sahl’s observation decades ago that “A liberal’s idea of courage is eating at a restaurant that hasn’t been reviewed yet” is exemplified by journalists’ retraction of the story of Parkland, Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz being affiliated with the ROF because of what might be termed “reverse trolling.” A post on a chat group about the Cruz/ROF link was deemed to be false. Jordan Jereb told journalists that Cruz was a member of his group, but that he hadn’t seen him in a long time. He has been said to be “walking that back.” Just HOW does one “walk that back?” ” . . . . The ADL said ROF leader Jordan Jereb told them Cruz was associated with his group. Jereb, who is based in Tallahassee, said Cruz was brought into the group by another member and had participated in one or more ROF training exercises in the Tallahassee area, the ADL said. . . . Jereb told the ADL that ROF had not ordered Cruz to take any such action. He told ABC News he has not spoken to Cruz in ‘some time’ but said ‘he knew he would getting this call.’ . . . .” Jereb told the ADL that ROF had not ordered Cruz to take any such action. He told ABC News he has not spoken to Cruz in “some time” but said “he knew he would getting this call.”

Whether or not Nikolas Cruz was formally networking with the Republic of Florida or other neo-Nazi groups, he was indeed a neo-Nazi in spirit: It turns out that Cruz had swastikas etched onto his ammunition magazines used during the attack. This reminds us of the jottings Patrick Edward Purdy had on his weapons and clothing.

Cruz didn’t just suddenly adopt a neo-Nazi worldview. He’s been stewing in these juices for years, and clearly had additional mental health issues.

Several factors greatly exacerbate the school shooting phenomenon.

The Steam gaming app, a major distributor for very popular video games, has a neo-Nazi problem–neo-Nazis are using its chat room and voice-over-IP options to promote their ideology. Both the Daily Stormer and Andrew Auernheimer have Steam chat rooms, as does AtomWaffen.

On these forums, there are 173 different groups championing school shooters, lauding them as heroes and setting the stage for future incidents. ” . . . . A leading gaming app that is popular with adherents of the neo-Nazi wing of the alt-right movement has at least 173 groups dedicated to the glorification of school shootings, according to a report published last week by Reveal News. . . .”

In addition, Nazi groups are actively recruiting depressed people! ” . . . . For years, members of the alt-right have taken advantage of the internet’s most vulnerable, turning their fear and self-loathing into vitriolic extremism, and thanks to the movement’s recent galvanization, they’re only growing stronger. . . . According to Christian Picciolini, a former neo-nazi who co-founded the peace advocacy organization, Life After Hate, these sort of recruiting tactics aren’t just common, but systematically enforced. ‘[The recruiters] are actively looking for these kind of broken individuals who they can promise acceptance, who they can promise identity to,’ Picciolini said in an interview with Sam Seder. . . .”

Although not included in the audio portion of the program due to the limitations of time, we note that, in our opinion, the presence of lethal, military-style firearms are not, by themselves, the primary factor in the epidemic of school shootings and other mass casualty firearms attacks. A would-be school shooter can always purchase a pump-action, 12-gauge shotgun, saw it off and precipitate considerable mayhem.

Many of the school shootings have been performed by fascists of one stripe or another, manifesting the type of actions advocated by the likes of Michael Moyniahan, James Mason and their fellow travelers. Mason and his role model Charles Manson are now viewed favorably by a segment of the Nazi movement. The role of nihilist/fascist ideology in motivating some of the school shooters should be factored into the discussion.

The role of the media in conditioning young people to kill is a major focal point of the book On Killing by Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman, who taught psychology at West Point. From Amazon’s promotional text for Grossman’s book: “The good news is that most soldiers are loath to kill. But armies have developed sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion. And contemporary civilian society, particularly the media, replicates the army’s conditioning techniques, and, according to Lt. Col. Dave Grossman’s thesis, is responsible for our rising rate of murder among the young. Upon its initial publication, ON KILLING was hailed as a landmark study of the techniques the military uses to overcome the powerful reluctance to kill, of how killing affects soldiers, and of the societal implications of escalating violence. Now, Grossman has updated this classic work to include information on 21st-century military conflicts, recent trends in crime, suicide bombings, school shootings, and more. The result is a work certain to be relevant and important for decades to come.”

Our high body-count movies and TV programs, as well as point-and-shoot video games, according to Grossman, replicate to a considerable degree the audio-visual desensitization techniques used by contemporary armies to help recruits overcame their inhibitions about killing. We suggest Grossman’s thesis as a factor in the school massacres.

Program Highlights Include:

1.-The paramilitary right-wing Oath Keepers deployment of heavily armed cadre outside of schools.
2.-Discussion of how the likes of Stewart Rhodes and his Oath Keepers are the type of paramilitary right-wingers who would be deputized in the event of an activation of martial law contingency plans.
3.-The online disparagement of Parkland high school students by the “Alt-Right.”
4.-The use of the C14 militias in Ukraine to enforce public order in Kiev (the capital) and 21 other cities. The organization takes its name from the 14 words of David Lane, a member of the Order. One of that group’s founders was highlighted at the beginning of FTR #1002, noting his quest to obtain sophisticated weaponry and to develop mind-control techniques.


FTR #1002 School Shootings and Fascist Groups, Part 1: Purdy’s Last Stand Redux

The first of a two-part series, this program consists almost entirely of a recap of material from Miscellaneous Archive Show M55: Purdy’s Last Stand: The Stockton (CA) Schoolyard Massacre of 1989.

Although Mr. Emory would have engaged in a more nuanced discussion of school shootings and their political and psycho-social implications had the program been recorded today, there are some essential elements to be considered in connection with the event.

The synoptic written description for the program reads as follows:

“Advances the working hypothesis that the Stockton schoolyard massacre of January 1989 may have been deliberately precipitated by elements of the U.S. national security establishment acting in combination with elements of the ultra-right. Patrick Edward Purdy murdered five Asian-American schoolchildren and then committed suicide, spurring legislation for gun control and creating public fear and sentiment for police state tactics. Purdy had associations with Aryan Nations and the Moon organization, and may have been a covert intelligence community patsy and victim of mind control. The broadcast analyzes a possible intelligence community connection to the gun control movement within the larger background of the martial law contingency plans developed by the Reagan and Bush administrations.”

Again, Mr. Emory would have presented a more nuanced analysis of this event had it occurred today–almost 30 years later–critical elements of the dissection of Purdy’s last stand bear repeating and more intense scrutiny:

1.-Purdy’s xenophobic view of Asian-Americans  and “immigrants”–a point of view that is held by a large portion of the Trump constituency, the so-called “Alt-Right” in this country and abroad, as well. Exacerbated greatly by economic deprivation stemming from globalization and the financial collapse of 2008 and austerity economics instituted in the EU at the instigation of Germany and the U.S. by the obstructionist GOP Congressional  majority that took power after the 2010 mid-term elections, the fear of immigrants is a major aspect of fascist ideology.
2.-The galvanizing effect on both parents and their children of the school shootings is vital to consider. Terrorized by these events, a populace is far more willing to  accept police-state tactics–creeping martial law, if you will.
3.-The martial law contingency plans formalized by Oliver North and company and outed during the Iran-Contra scandal involved the federal deputization of paramilitary right-wing groups such as the Oath Keepers and Nazi and fascist elements. Ironically, much of the so-called “Alt-Right” now incorporate anti-gun control ideology and martial law plans into their world view. In Lecture M3, we highlighted how elements of what are now called “Alt-Right” are playing into the various scenarios they inveigh against.
4.-It is ironic that much of the so-called “Alt-Right” cite gun control as a step toward martial law. Although they are correct, up to a point, they fail to realize that they, themselves, will be both instigators of, and in some cases, the enforcers for, that very same martial law!
5.-Public education has long been a target of the far-right, which attacked school integration in the 1950’s, 60’s and ’70s, the banning of prayer in public schools and, in later years attempts at introducing programs like sex education and programs promoting a more tolerant attitude toward others. In calendar year 2018, we should note that public schools are under attack from the far right, and not just in the person of school shooters. Betsy De Vos, Trump’s Secretary of Education, is pushing for federal funding of parochial schools, enabling of for-profit colleges. The GOP and far right are pushing home schooling as an alternative to public education and the further slashing of federal and state budgets, which inevitably harms public education. We note that public schools are a major font of social awareness. Students–ideally–encounter and develop a greater understanding and tolerance for others in public schools. Public education is a major feature of social cohesion, and its dissolution a major step toward the implementation of fascism.


A Final Flipping of the Bird to “The Summer of Love” 50th Anniversary Celebration

In FTR #991, we detailed the esoteric fascist/Nazi philosophy of Hare Krishna cult founder and head guru A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. On 1/29/1967, Prabhupada and his cult were the beneficiaries of monies generated by a concert and dance featuring the leading San Francisco psychedelic-era rock bands. The event also featured participation by LSD guru Timothy Leary. Leary’s activities and career are inextricably linked with the CIA.

FTR #977 Operation Mind Control, Part 4: Subverting the Political Will, Part 2

Continuing our examination of the intelligence community’s mind control programs, this broadcast recaps research into Jonestown. Specifically, we examine Jonestown as a probable intelligence front and extension of the CIA’s mind control efforts.

This, in turn, is against the background of indications that Julian Assange’s roots are in the Santiniketan Park Association, as well as Bernie Sanders’ associate Tulsi Gabbard, who is deeply involved with an offshoot of the Hare Krishna cult.

The program begins with a talk given by Joe Holsinger, a legislative aide to the late Representative Leo Ryan.

Mr. Holsinger made a number of points about apparent intelligence community links to Jonestown, indicating that Jonestown may well have been an “op,” with a number of facets.

Holsinger made a number of points in his presentation, including:

1.-Richard Dwyer, alleged to be CIA station chief in Guyana by credible sources was very close to Jones, who could be heard shouting “Get Dwyer out of here” in a recording made in the immediate run-up to the Jonestown massacre.
2.-George Philip Blakey, a CIA operative previously involved with UNITA in Angola, made the initial down payment on the Guyana property that became Jonestown.
3.-Blakey is the husband of Debbie Layton Blakey, whose brother Larry Layton, Jr. led the shooter squad at the Port Kaituma air strip. Lawrence Layton Sr., the father of Debbie and Larry Jr., had been chief of the Chemical Warfare  Research program at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah. Layton, Sr. and his wife Lisa were also members of the People’s Temple.
4.-There were credible accounts of the Jonestown population being used to prop up the Guyanese government.
5.-Representative Leo Ryan was co-author of the Hughes-Ryan amendment that obliged the CIA to give Congress prior notice of covert operations. If Jonestown was a CIA operation, it would have violated the Hughes-Ryan amendment. Ryan’s assassination at the Port Kaituma airstrip sent an unambiguous message agency critics.
6.-Members of the People’s Temple at Jonestown had medical checks every day, indicating that some form of experimentation may have been going on.
7.-Comparatively few of the victims actually drank the poisoned Kool Aid. Many were shot to death and others had been killed by lethal injections administered in their arms.
8.-After several days of officialdom saying that several hundred victims had been found and hundreds of others were missing, the “missing” Jonestown population were said to have been found under the first group of victims, a highly unlikely scenario.

Program Highlights Include: 

1.-People’s Temple attorney Mark Lane’s attempts to get Grace Stephens–a key witness in the assassination of Martin Luther King–to Jonestown, where she would have died in the massacre.
2.-Mark Lane’s dual roles as attorney for People’s Temple (which he maintained was a “paradise on earth”) and the attorney for James Earl Ray, the patsy for the assassination of Martin Luther King. Lane’s [correct] assertion that Ray was innocent was badly tainted after the Jonestown massacre took place.
3.-Lawrence Layton’s marriage into the Philip family, whose German roots extended back to I.G. Farben and Siemens.
4.-Lawrence Layton’s work on the Manhattan Project.
5.-Orders from “high up” that all politically sensitive papers and identification were removed from the bodies at Jonestown.
6.-The fact that many of the bodies had identification tags on them.
7.-Zbigniew Brezinski aide Robert Pastor’s giving of the order to strip the bodies of identification.
8.-The suspicious suicide of Anita Philip, the wife of I.G. Farben lawyer Hugo Philip.


FTR #976 Operation Mind Control: Subverting the Political Will

Continuing analysis of the intelligence community’s mind control programs, this broadcast details one of the most insidious applications of the mind control discipline–the programming of entire new personalities into people, which could only become operational after a pre-conditioned cue was administered.

The program begins with discussion of the use of hypnosis to enable military and intelligence couriers to commit large amounts of information to memory in such a manner as to prevent disclosure when the subject was not hypnotized.

One of the CIA’s mind control couriers was a famous model and World War II pin-up girl named Candy Jones.

Ms. Jones–one of America’s premier models, a political liberal and the wife of broadcasting legend Long John Nebel–was subjected to a rigorous mind control program in which a bigoted, fascist personality was programmed into her under the alternate personality Arlene Grant.

Ms. Jones was conditioned to hate blacks, Jews and others, via a personality conditioned into her by a programmer. After marrying Nebel, a liberal, Ms. Jones was apparently programmed to kill herself, throwing herself off a cliff in the Bahamas.

Of particular note is the sexually-charged, anti-black racism with which Ms. Jones–as “Arlene Grant”–was imbued. Against the contemporary political backdrop, this is especially significant.

The balance of the discussion is a hypothetical “prequel” to discussion of the Peoples Temple of Jim Jones. With riots in many of this country’s urban ghettos in the 1960’s and violent acts by so-called “black militants” garnering significant headlines in the 1960’s and 1970’s, there was support in the intelligence and applied psychology fields to study the social behavior and psychology of African-Americans. Particular emphasis was on studying the brains of black people, to see if there was some innate inclination toward violent behavior on the part of a significant portion of the African-American community.

The Nixon administration and the California gubernatorial registration of Ronald Reagan were supportive of the project, with the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration enlisted to help finance the project, for which an abandoned Nike missile base was to be requisitioned as an operational center.

CIA psychologist Louis Jolyon West was one of the prime movers in the apparently aborted launching of the UCLA Institute for the Study and Prevention of Violence. (West had been Jack Ruby’s psychiatrist, as well as an early experimenter on the effects of LSD.) In our next program, we examine the possibility that the UCLA center was actually supplanted with the Peoples Temple of Jim Jones, an apparent CIA operation and extension of the intelligence community’s mind control operations.


FTR #975 Operation Mind Control, Part 2: Creating the Perfect Killer, Part 2

The program begins by setting forth possible mind control connections to some of the “persons of interest” in America’s major assassinations.

Focusing initially on Oswald handler George De Mohrenschildt, the broadcast notes that:

1.-De Mohrenschildt had apparently been a Nazi spy in World War II, working with North American Abwehr chief Baron Hugo Maydel during the war. De Mohrenschildt had been one of Oswald’s handlers.
2.-De Mohrenschildt had apparently come to have regrets about the killing, and had been writing a book about the conspiracy, according to Dutch author Oltmans.
3.-After giving voice to his regrets and reservations and apparently naming CIA and FBI personnel allegedly involved in the conspiracy, De Mohrenschildt was interned in a psychiatric hospital, where he appears to have been subjected to various forms of mind control.
4.-His daughter Alexandra opined that De Mohrenschildt shot himself to death after receiving a phone call, which she believes contained a hidden cue that triggered his conditioned suicide.

Next, the broadcast highlights some of the aspects of Sirhan Sirhan’s apparent programming at the hands of the intelligence operatives who masterminded the assassination of RFK. As discussed in AFA #9, the forensic evidence disproves the prevailing theory of Sirhan as the killer of Robert Kennedy. In discussing the apparent mind control to which Sirhan was subjected, we note that:

1.-There were fundamentally different analyses of Sirhan from Dr. Bernard Diamond and Dr. Edward Simpson.
2.-Diamond noted that Sirhan was a very easy subject to hypnotize and that he was also a “paranoid schizophrenic.”
3.-Simpson noted that paranoid schizophrenics are virtually impossible to hypnotize.
4.-The available evidence suggests that Sirhan was under mind control and that the focus of that conditioning was to propel him into self-incrimination.
5.-Continuing exploration of the intelligence community’s mind control programs, the broadcast features an interview with a U.S. government assassin, termed by author Walter Bowart “The Patriotic Assassin.”

Having been involved with the laboratory work that spawned the creation of mind controlled assassins, the operative interviewed by Bowart:

1.-Confirmed that the killings of the Kennedy brothers and Martin Luther King were acts of state. He opined that the assassins would have received medals.
2.-Confirmed that the country had experienced a fascist coup, with the country being run by a relative handful of interests, with the military in charge.
3.-Asserted that many operatives in the military and intelligence community worked both for the federal government and for powerful corporations, helping to steer policy in the directions preferred by the corporations and, ultimately, retiring with both federal and corporate retirement benefits.
4.-Confirmed the operational use of mind control in covert operations, as well as aspects of larger military operations.
5.-Maintained that assassins did not need to be subjected to mind control to direct them to perform their missions, but that mind control was necessary to keep them from remembering what they had done.
6.-Asserted that, because critical functions in the high-tech, nuclear state were performed by enlisted personnel, mind control was necessary to keep them from remembering what they had done. The Patriotic Assassin asserted that commissioned officers were dependent on the benefits attendant on that level of service after retirement and maintained that this was sufficient motivation to maintain silence.
7.-Commented that the oft-repeated claim by intelligence agencies that mind control “research” had been discontinued was a veil for the fact that it was fully operational.
8.-Foreshadowed a largely-overlooked and possibly abortive assassination attempt on Jimmy Carter in 1979. Carter had stated that he thought the assassinations of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King had been the result of conspiracies. Shortly afterward, two men were arrested in Los Angeles, after crossing into the country from Mexico to murder Carter. The names of the conspirators were “Ray Lee Harvey” and “Oswaldo Ortiz”–reminiscent of the names of James Earl Ray and Lee Harvey Oswald, the patsies for the murders of JFK and Martin Luther King.


FTR #974 Operation Mind Control, Part 1: Creating the Perfect Killer

With recent discussion of fascist mind control cults in programming about Julian Assange, Japan (the Unification Church) and Tulsi Gabbard (key associate of Bernie Sanders and his Sanders Institute), it may be useful to younger and newer listeners to review some of the information from the AFA Archive Shows about mind control (originally recorded in 1983-1985.)

The first two programs in the series review information about elements of U.S. intelligence using various psychological techniques–some of them relatively elementary–to create mind control assassins. Mobilizing hypnosis, psychoactive drugs, classical and operant conditioning and audio visual desensitization, often in combination with one another, people were created who would do the bidding of their control structure, even when to do so would conflict with their own values and inclinations.

Accessing information from Walter Bowart’s Operation Mind Control, the program begins with experiments conducted in the immediate aftermath of World War II. It has often been stated that hypnosis cannot be used to motivate someone to kill a person they otherwise would not harm.

This contention overlooks the technique of convincing a subject that the target of their actions is someone other than who they actually are.

Under hypnosis, soldiers were instructed to kill superior officers and associates, who were suggested to the hypnotized subject as being Japanese soldiers. It should be noted that attacking a superior officer is a major offense in the military.

The hypnotized soldiers then pressed rapid attacks on the superior officers and/or colleagues, despite the fact that this behavior was fundamentally in conflict with the values to which the subjects adhered. The relevant point is that hypnosis can be used to motivate someone to kill a person who has been misidentified under hypnosis.

The program then sets forth the work of Navy officer Thomas Narut, using audio-visual desensitization to help train assassins. After their behavior had been shaped by Narut, they were stationed at U.S. embassies and other facilities where their skills might be deemed necessary.

The program concludes with the story of Luis Angel Castillo, an apparent mind-controlled assassin who had multiple personalities programmed into him. Key points of discussion about Castillo include:

1.-A total of four different “Zombie states,” each featuring different types of behavior to which Castillo had been conditioned.
2.-Castillo’s positioning to assassinate Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos. (We wonder if this potential attempt was connected to Marcos’s reluctance to share the Golden Lily loot with the U.S? Might Castillo have been programmed to eliminate Marcos as an obstacle to using the massive underground bullion and jewel deposits? Might his presence have been intended as a warning to Marcos that he had better cooperate?)
3.-Castillo’s possible role in the assassination of President Kennedy.
4.-Castillo’s possible links to Allen Dulles.
5.-The presence of a German woman–known to Castillo as Mrs. Kreps–who appears to have wielded much influence over Castillo.
6.-Castillo’s conditioning to commit suicide, if his activities became known to others.


Supplement to the Tulsi Gabbard Analysis

In FTR #’s 941 and 942 we examined the political history and milieu of Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), a “rising star” in the Democratic Party, one of the driving forces behind the Bernie Sanders phenomenon, and networked with Narendra Modi’s BJP and the RSS, the Hindu fascist/organization that assassinated Gandhi. A “Huffington Post” article from “Civil Beat” seemed curiously unable to find a public statement by Gabbard about her membership in a Hare Krishna cult offshoot headed by Chris Butler. She states her association with Butler, aka aka Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa, in a readily available video. “Civil Beat” is a publication founded by Pierre Omidyar (of “First Look Media”), who helped to finance Modi’s election.


FTR #942 Who Is Tulsi Gabbard? (Part 2)

Continuing our analysis of Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Democrat of Hawaii, we begin with a lengthy exploration of the racist, fascist, quasi-Hitlerian views of Swami Prabhupada, the founder of the Hare Krishna cult and someone who has received the unqualified adulation of Gabbard.

We explore Gabbard in the context of her high-profile role as a supporter of Bernie Sanders and the incoherent nature of her stance on Muslims.

In a nutshell, Gabbard’s idol Prabhupada believed that: “ . . . . rape victims asked for it, Blacks are inferior and should be enslaved, Aryans are the supreme race, Hitler was right when attacking the Jews, and the ‘non-Aryan’ majority of the human race are useless eaters no better than dogs. The preferred form of government is an absolutist monarchy. Racism is apparently an integral part of the ideal Vedic society, since ‘shudra’ (the designation of the worker-caste) means ‘black,’ which in turn literally refers to blacks, a category which also includes Dravidians from southern India. . . .”
Prabhupada, not surprisingly, was a believer in eugenics.

Prabhupada also felt that Native Americans exemplified the inferiority of the non-white peoples of the world and their subjugation by white Europeans was proof of their inferiority. This is interesting because Gabbard garnered much publicity with her decampment to Standing Rock in support of the natives of the region. We wonder what the Standing Rock Sioux would feel about Gabbard’s unqualified admiration of Prabhupada?

The program recaps a five minute adulatory address by Gabbard on the subject of Prabhupada, in which she states in so many words that Chris Butler, aka Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa is her personal guru.
The broadcast details the dominant role of the Hare Krishna sect headed by Butler in Gabbard’s parents, husband, in-laws and political milieu.

The broadcast concludes with rumination about the possible role of Gabbard in the high-profile hacks of the DNC and Clinton campaign manager John Podesta. Former British diplomat Craig Murray alleges that he got the information posted by WikiLeaks on a thumb drive given to him by a DNC insider “disgusted” by Clinton.

Gabbard was the former deputy chairperson of the DNC. Was she the “insider” Murray is referring to? If not, might she have provided information facilitating the hacks mistakenly being attributed to Russia/Putin?

Program Highlights Include: Review of Gabbard’s networking with Narendra Modi, his BJP party and the RSS, for which the BJP is a cat’s paw; review of Gabbard’s criticism of Barak Obama for not being sufficiently anti-Muslim; review of Gabbard’s resonance with the anti-Muslim views of Modi, his BJP and the RSS; review of the fascist RSS’s heritage, including its fundamental role in the assassination of Gandhi; review of Trump’s “Alt-right” advisor and former campaign manager Steve Bannon’s positive views of Modi and Tulsi Gabbard; review of Trump’s interview of Gabbard for a possible cabinet position; discussion of the segmenting of the Hare Krishna cult under the supervision of eleven different gurus; the former chief of publicity for the group’s assertion that the organization has a secret agenda and rules its subjects with an iron fist; elements of the Hare Krishna sect’s involvement in gun-running; racketeering and murder.


FTR #941 Who Is Tulsi Gabbard? (Part 1)

The first of two programs highlighting Tulsi Gabbard, a Democratic congressional representative from Hawaii, this broadcast notes her high-profile role in promoting Bernie Sanders for President, her incoherent stance on Muslims/Islam, her networking with the Hindu nationalist/fascist government of Narendra Modi, the favorable view of Gabbard held by the Trumpenkampfverbande, and Gabbard’s profound links to a branch of the Hare Krishna cult run by a fellow named Chris Butler aka Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa.

A major focal point of the program is the occult fascist nature of the views of Hare Krishna sect founder Abhay Charanaravinda Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, whom we shall refer to as Prabuhada. Central to our examination of Gabbard is the question of whether or not she might be a “ringer” inside the Democratic Party and–possibly–a mind-control job?

We begin with discussion of Tulsi Gabbard’s high-profile support for Bernie Sanders. ” . . . . Sanders has been surprisingly low-key in his response to this latest wave of populist delusion. Time is short. He must forcefully tell his supporters to abandon their misguided write-in mission, and soon. Every minute he keeps quiet, spoiler campaigns such as Op Deny 270 and BernieVote.com recruit more voters from Facebook and Twitter to write in Sanders. In California, 55 people managed to register as “electors” to get Sanders approved as an official write-in candidate, with Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard as vice president. The Sandernistas spent last week arguing that Clinton is just as “evil” as Trump, based on rumors – whipped up disgracefully by rogue pro-Trump FBI agents, then quashed Sunday with a big “never mind” by FBI Director James Comey – that freshly unearthed emails might yet get her indicted. .[We wonder if “Op Deny 270 and BernieVote.com might be some of the voter suppression operations Trump dirty tricks maven Roger Stone boasted of during the campaign?–D.E.] . .”

Of considerable interest are Gabbard’s incoherent views on Muslims/Islam and how they relate to her support for Sanders:

She has beeen critical of Obama because his stance on ISIS doesn’t label the group as representative of Islam: “ . . . . ‘Meet the Democrat Who’s Not Afraid to Criticize President Obama on ISIS,’ intones a recent ABC News headline. The story describes remarks by Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D), who has for the past month been all over the media slamming Obama’s refusal to directly associate ISIS and other terrorists with the Islamic faith. She’s particularly a favorite of right-wing media. . . .”

Gabbard’s support for Sanders is ostensibly due to her opposition to wars of regime change (a stance with which we agree, BTW.) This contrasts with her anti-Islam militancy: ” . . . . The newspaper characterized her support as “tempered” and wrote that she reiterated her concerns over the former secretary of State’s Middle East policies. . . . Gabbard, a veteran of two Middle East deployments, resigned her post as vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee in February to endorse Sanders, a Vermont senator. She said then, in a video, that America could elect ‘a president who will lead us into more interventionist wars of regime change or we can elect a president who will usher in a new era of peace and prosperity.’ . . .”

Curiously, Gabbard has joined Sanders in supporting African-American Muslim Keith Ellison for chair of the DNC. We feel that IF that were to happen, it would play right into the hands of Roger Stone/Trump/Steve Bannon et al. Is that the real goal of Gabbard’s stance?

Ellison has networked with Muslim Brotherhood front organizations in the U.S., something that will work to the benefit of Roger Stone/Trump/Steve Bannon et al.
gabbardtrumpNext, the program recaps networking between the milieux of Donald Trump, Tulsi Gabbard and Narendra Modi:

Trump’s Indian partners in his real estate projects overlap the milieu of Modi’s BJP (a cat’s paw for the Hindu nationalist and fascist party the RSS.) ” . . . . Mr. Trump’s partner in the Trump Tower Mumbai is the Lodha Group, founded by Mangal Prabhat Lodha, vice president of the Bharatiya Janata Party — currently the governing party in Parliament — in Maharashtra State. The Lodha Group has already negotiated with the United States government; it announced a landmark purchase of a property, known as the Washington House, on tony Altamount Road, from the American government for 3.75 billion rupees, almost $70 million. His partner in an office complex in Gurgaon, near New Delhi, is IREO, whose managing director, Lalit Goyal, is the brother-in-law of a Bharatiya Janata member of Parliament, Sudhanshu Mittal. Mr. Mittal, in an interview, has denied having any connection with the real estate company. . . .”

Trump interviewed Gabbard for a cabinet position: “. . . . Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, a high-profile Bernie Sanders supporter during the Democratic primaries, is “under serious consideration” for various Cabinet positions in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration, according to a senior official on the transition team.A ccording to the official, the 35-year-old Hawaii congresswoman is being looked as a candidate for secretary of state, secretary of defense or United Nations ambassador. If selected, Gabbard will be the first woman as well as the youngest pick for Trump’s Cabinet. . . .”

Trump’s “alt-right” advisor Steve Bannon is a fan of Gabbard’s: ” . . . . Stephen Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, reportedly likes Gabbard because of her stance on guns, refugees and Islamic extremism along with her ability to invoke strong anti-establishment populist sentiment on the left. . . .”

Bannon is also a fan of Narendra Modi and has followed his political rise closely: ” . . . . Mr. Trump may be largely indifferent to the reasons behind his Hindu loyalists’ fervor, but his most senior advisers are not. The campaign’s chief executive, Stephen K. Bannon, is a student of nationalist movements. Mr. Bannon is close to Nigel Farage, a central figure in Britain’s movement to leave the European Union, and he is an admirer of India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, a Hindu nationalist Mr. Bannon has called ‘the Reagan of India.’ It may be pure coincidence that some of Mr. Trump’s words channel the nationalistic and, some argue, anti-Muslim sentiments that Mr. Modi stoked as he rose to power. But it is certainly not coincidental that many of Mr. Trump’s biggest Hindu supporters are also some of Mr. Modi’s most ardent backers. . . .”

Gabbard is also a big fan of Narendra Modi, having been involved with the planning of Modi’s U.S. visit and networking with BJP members: ” . . . . Gabbard, a strong supporter of Modi, is a Democrat Congresswoman from Hawaii. . . . She had spoken to Modi after his victory in the Indian general elections and congratulated him and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). She has also been involved in the planning of Modi’s US visit and had last month met two BJP leaders Vijay Jolly and MP Rajyavardhan Rathore in that connection. . . .”

On a trip to India, Gabbard networked with both the BJP and the RSS, the Hindu nationalist/fascist party for which Modi’s BJP is a cat’s paw. (All of Modi’s cabinet appointments were drawn from the RSS. Modeled on the German Nazi Party and Mussolini’s blackshirts, the RSS killed Gandhi.): “. . . . Speaking at a fundraising event for the BJP in August 2014 . . . Gabbard said that Modi’s election victory was only possible because ‘people stood up, one by one by one by one, and said we will demand that this change occurs.’ . . . Gabbard was treated as royalty on her visit to India last year. As she hobnobbed with the Indian prime minister and foreign minister among others, The Telegraph, a Kolkata-based newspaper, called her ‘the Sangh’s mascot’ in the US. The Sangh, a moniker for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), is a right-wing hindutva organisation and the ideological guardian of the BJP party that rules India now. . . .”

Marketed as “the first Hindu in Congress,” Gabbard, her family, her in-laws and political milieu are deeply connected to an offshoot of the Hare Krishna sect in Hawaii led by Chris Butler aka Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa:

Gabbard’s Washington-based chief of staff, Kainoa Penaroza, is the son of Bill Penaroza, linked to a political front for Butler’s organization. ” . . . . Kainoa Penaroza, who was appointed as Gabbard’s Washington, D.C.-based chief of staff last month despite his relative lack of political experience, is the son of Bill Penaroza, who was among a slate of 14 candidates running for a variety of offices in 1976 under an enigmatic political party called the Independents for Godly Government. The party’s connection to Butler was revealed in a three-part investigative series by the Honolulu Advertiser’s Water Wright in 1977. . . .”

Penaroza’s wife works as Gabbard’s Washington fundraiser. Both lived at a property owned by a group that owned Healthy’s, a store controlled by Butler’s group. ” . . . . Penaroza, 30, and his wife, Alana Leigh Penaroza, who now works as Gabbard’s D.C. fundraiser, at one time lived in a Kailua property owned by Joseph Bismark, a Singapore-based businessman whose company, QI Group, bought Healthy’s in 2007. According to the Hawaii Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, Healthy’s owns Noni Connection LLC, which lists Kainoa Penaroza as its director and secretary. . . .”

Abaham Williams, Gabbard’s now-husband, is from a family with deep ties to the Butler cult. ” . . . . Abraham Williams, Gabbard’s 26-year-old fiancé, is a freelance cinematographer who also grew up in a family with strong ties to Butler. His mother, Anya Anthony, is listed as a registered agent of Wai Lana Productions LLC, a company named after Butler’s wife, Wai Lan, that runs www.wailana.com, which sells yoga instruction DVDs, clothing and other accessories. . . . .”

Gabbard’s mother-in-law–Anya Anthony–is part of the Butler cult milieu and is the manager of Gabbard’s district office in Honolulu. ” . . . . Anthony is now the manager of Gabbard’s district office in Honolulu. Last month, Gabbard put a post on Facebook introducing Anthony as her soon-to-be mother-in-law. Gabbard noted that she had asked the Congressional Ethics Committee to determine if it was ethical for the congresswoman to employ her future mother-in-law. The committee signed off on Anthony’s continued employment, a committee spokesman confirmed to Civil Beat.

Sunil Khemaney, one Gabbard’s supporters on her trip to India where she networked with Modi, the BJP and the RSS, is tied to the Butler business milieu. ” . . . . Sunil Khemaney, who accompanied Gabbard on her December trip to India, is listed in Wai Lana Productions’ business registration records as its manager. He is also the director of Healthy’s and one of the trustees of Wai Lana Yoga Trust, whose mission is to ‘educate and teach the general public about the philosophy, moral standards and practices of yoga for the benefit of mankind.’ Khemaney is also the vice president of the East West Yoga Foundation, a nonprofit registered in Arizona. Chris Butler is listed in Arizona corporation records as its director, along with his wife, who is the president and director. . . .”

Tulsi’s father Mike is also tied to the Butler cult: ” . . . . Mike Gabbard has long maintained that he’s a Catholic, not Hare Krishna. But, in Honolulu Magazine’s 2004 profile, he acknowledged his ties to Butler: ‘Although I’m not a member of the Science of Identity Foundation, I’m eternally thankful to Chris Butler … whose teachings of karma yoga (selfless service) and bhakti yoga (devotion to God) have brought me back to my Catholic roots and the fundamental teachings of Christ.’ . . . . Mike Gabbard was in the audience at a taping of Chris Butler’s TV show, “Jagad Guru Speaks,” which aired for several years in the 1980s and 1990s. . . .”

Tulsi’s mother Carol is also tied to Butler and both of her parents sat on the board of directors of Buter’s group: ” . . . . . Multiple historical documents show that, at various points in the history of the Science of Identity Foundation, both Mike and Carol Gabbard sat on its board. According to various reports, they were bestowed Sanskrit names, ‘Krishna Katha das’ and ‘Devahuti dasi,’ respectively. . . .”

Gabbard herself denotes Butler as her personal guru at around 3:45 in an embedded video, the autio track of which is contained in the show. Note that the talk Gabbard is giving is an adulatory presentation of Prabuhada.

Prabhupada’s views are noteworthy for our purposes: “. . . . ISKCON founder A C Bhaktivedanta Swami’s views were even more bizarre than I expected: rape victims asked for it, Blacks are inferior and should be enslaved, Aryans are the supreme race, Hitler was right when attacking the Jews, and the “non-Aryan” majority of the human race are useless eaters no better than dogs. The preferred form of government is an absolutist monarchy. Racism is apparently an integral part of the ideal Vedic society, since “shudra” (the designation of the worker-caste) means “black”, which in turn literally refers to Blacks, a category which also includes Dravidians from southern India. . . .”

The program concludes with a longer look at Prabhupada’s fascist/racist views–an examination that will be set forth at greater length in the next program.
Program Highlights Include:

a)An examination of the fragmenting and usurpation that befell the Hare Krishna cult after Prabhupada’s death. This, too, will be set forth at greater length in the next program.
b)Speculation about Gabbard’s possible role in the compromising of the DNC.
c)Review of the allegation by Craig Murray that he gave the information compromising the DNC to WikiLeaks, after having received it from a dissatisfied DNC insider.
d)Gabbard’s curious stance on Trump’s appointment of recently-retired generals to fill key cabinet posts.
