Bet Pussy Riot Won’t Be Protesting Against This!

Ukrain­ian MP and mil­i­tary advis­er Dymtro Yarosh, head of one of the OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions in the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment, threat­ened vio­lence against a gay rights march in Kiev. His orga­ni­za­tion made good on its threat.

FTR #848 Walkin’ the Snake in the Baltic States

In the Nazi tract “Ser­pen­t’s Walk,” the SS go under­ground, build up their eco­nom­ic mus­cle, gain con­trol of the opin­ion-form­ing media and, ulti­mate­ly, take over the Unit­ed States and the world, revers­ing polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal real­i­ty. In the Baltic states (as in Ukraine), we are see­ing just such a per­ver­sion of the polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal record. In Latvia, Lithua­nia and Esto­nia, vet­er­ans of the Waf­fen SS are suc­ceed­ing in por­tray­ing them­selves as “free­dom fight­ers,” as well as cast­ing the his­to­ry of World War II in a Nazi ide­o­log­i­cal frame­work. Fur­ther­more, they are impart­ing their ide­o­log­i­cal and oper­a­tional wis­dom to a younger gen­er­a­tion of Nazis. All of this is occur­ring with the acqui­es­cence of the EU, despite the fact that such activ­i­ties are against that body’s laws. The pro­gram con­cludes with a look at the pro­jec­tion of World War II fas­cists into Lithua­nia by ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence dur­ing the con­clu­sion of the Cold War, set­ting the stage for what is tak­ing place now.


Tell the Truth (About Ukraine) and Run

The late anti-fas­cist, inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist George Seldes pub­lished a book called “Tell the Truth and Run.” That advi­so­ry applies to the Orwellian, McCarthyesque intel­lec­tu­al land­scape tak­ing hold of the U.S. in con­nec­tion with the Ukraine cri­sis.

FTR #842 Interview (#5) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This next install­ment of our dis­cus­sions with Peter Lev­en­da about “The Hitler Lega­cy” begins with dis­cus­sion of indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions that com­prised the post­war Nazi under­ground. Focused large­ly on the SS, these orga­ni­za­tions were vehi­cles for the per­pet­u­a­tion of the Nazi strug­gle against the Allies (includ­ing the U.S. and Britain) at the same time as they inter­faced with pow­er­ful ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence, who used them as Cold War­riors. Part of the Cold War strat­e­gy pur­sued by the U.S. was to resuci­tate (for a third time) the “glob­al jihadist” strat­e­gy devised by Max von Oppen­heim dur­ing the First World War. Seek­ing the “believ­ing” Mus­lims as proxy war­riors against the athe­is­tic com­mu­nists, pow­er­ful ele­ments of CIA and the State Depart­ment enlist­ed the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood in this strug­gle. “Weaponized reli­gion” was also used in Asia, where the Third Reich had already estab­lished a work­ing rela­tion­ship with the Dalai Lama and Tibetan Bud­dhists, with SS offi­cers of pri­ma­ry sig­nif­i­cance in the Nazis’ deal­ings with “His Holi­ness.” Key points of dis­cus­sion include: the career of Otto Ernst Remer; the remark­able career of Fran­cois Genoud; the Dalai Lama’s SS asso­ciate Bruno Beger’s atroc­i­ties war crimes; the Dalai Lama’s SS tutor–Heinrich Harrer–and his work for ele­ments of U.S. and West­ern intel­li­gence after the war.


FTR #841 Interview (#4) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Resum­ing our analy­sis of “The Hitler Lega­cy,” our next inter­view with Peter Lev­en­da con­tin­ues dis­cus­sion of the reha­bil­i­ta­tion of “jihadis as proxy war­riors” by Ger­many in the run-up to, and dur­ing, the Sec­ond World War. Hav­ing assumed the posi­tion of Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Hus­sei­ni took advan­tage of resent­ment on the Arab street and mobi­lized it against the British and Jews. Begin­ning with pogroms dur­ing the 1920’s and 1930’s, Hus­seini’s activism blos­somed into full-fledged par­tic­i­pa­tion in Nazi mil­i­tary com­paigns, includ­ing recruit­ing Waf­fen SS units in Mus­lim ter­ri­to­ries. After dis­cussing some sim­i­lar­i­ties between Nazism and glob­al jihadist ide­ol­o­gy, Peter high­lights the Grand Mufti’s post war work with the PLO and oth­er Mus­lim polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary orga­ni­za­tions. Join­ing the Grand Mufti were numeer­ous SS men and Nazi tech­ni­cal experts, there to con­tin­ue their war against the Jews and to fight against Com­mu­nism on behalf of West­ern intel­li­gence agen­cies. In the Mid­dle East, as in oth­er coun­tries where they were recruit­ed as anti-Com­mu­nist cadre, the Third Reich alum­ni pur­sued a Nazi agen­da, spawn­ing new Nazi polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary for­ma­tions. Peter notes that they are not “neo”-Nazis, at all. West­ern intel­li­gence helped fos­ter post­war SS-assis­tance orga­ni­za­tions such as Die Spinne and ODESSA, shep­herd­ed to a con­sid­er­able extent by SS Colonel Otto Sko­rzeny.


Cyber McCarthyism, Ukrainian Information Warfare, and the Targeting of U.S. Journalists: Still Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine

An “infor­ma­tion war­fare” offen­sive being over­seen behalf of Ukraine by a U.S. and Spe­cial Forces vet named Joe Hard­ing is tar­get­ing Amer­i­can jour­nal­ists crit­i­cal of the OUN/B heirs brought to pow­er by the Maid­an coup. Labeled as “dupes” of ene­my pro­pa­gan­da, or worse, they are now appar­ent­ly being tar­get­ed by var­i­ous pro­pa­gan­da and cyber-war tech­niques, a sin­is­ter devel­op­ment that we fear might be accom­pa­nied by vio­lence. His­tor­i­cal and polit­i­cal real­i­ty is being stood on its head, a la “Ser­pen­t’s Walk,” with any­one with the met­tle to tell the unvar­nished truth about events in Ukraine fac­ing “cyber-McCarthy­ism.” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.

FTR #840 Interview (#3) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Con­tin­u­ing our dis­cus­sion with Peter Lev­en­da about his remark­able book “The Hitler Lega­cy,” the broad­cast details what the author calls “The exit strat­e­gy.” Fac­ing mil­i­tary defeat, the Third Reich knew that Nazism would not die with the Allied vic­to­ry, but could con­tin­ue the strug­gle from far-flung places. Mov­ing both SS offi­cers and vast amounts of cap­i­tal abroad, the Reich took advan­tage of the ide­o­log­i­cal res­o­nance that exist­ed between the NSDAP and both anti-Com­mu­nist and anti-Semit­ic ele­ments abroad, includ­ing and espe­cial­ly, the Nazi under­ground that exist­ed in the Unit­ed States. Using the Vat­i­can “rat­lines” and their pow­er­ful busi­ness con­nec­tions with West­ern (espe­cial­ly Amer­i­can) cor­po­ra­tions and asso­ci­at­ed law firms, SS men went over­seas, where the vast amounts of cap­i­tal belong­ing to the Bor­mann flight cap­i­tal net­work sus­tained their activ­i­ties. Pro­gram high­lights include: the role of the Bank for Inter­na­tion­al Set­tle­ments in the Nazi finan­cial dias­po­ra; the for­ma­tion and oper­a­tion of the Rein­hard Gehlen spy net­work; analy­sis of “The Red House Doc­u­ment,” includ­ing the pro­vi­sion by Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions to fund the Nazi par­ty under­ground after the war; brief dis­cus­sion of the Grand Mufti and his alliance with the Third Reich.


New World’s Indoor Record for Ignorance

If the Guin­ness Book of World Records had a cat­e­go­ry for sheer polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal igno­rance, the Pol­ish for­eign min­is­ter just might lay claim to that dubi­ous prize. The Red Army units that lib­er­at­ed Auschwitz were part of the Sovi­et force amal­ga­mat­ed under the com­mand rubric “Ukrain­ian Front.” Seiz­ing on that, the Pol­ish for­eign min­is­ter claimed that “Ukrain­ian” sol­diers lib­er­at­ed Auschwitz.

Lithuanian Fascism, Yesterday and Today

Hav­ing become the sec­ond fas­cist coun­try in Europe (in 1925), Lithua­nia is among the EU and NATO coun­tries cel­e­brat­ing its Waf­fen SS units that served the Third Reich. Lithuan­ian fas­cists were nur­tured by West­ern intel­li­gence and were pro­ject­ed into that for­mer Sovi­et repub­lic as part of the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Sovi­et Union. Now, Lithua­nia has resuci­tat­ed the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union, a para­mil­i­tary unit that col­lab­o­rat­ed with the Third Reich. Along with the Ukrain­ian OUN/B and UPA–the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union con­tin­ued the com­bat of World War II as gueril­la forces sup­port­ed by the OPC (an ele­ment of U.S. intel­li­gence.)

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.
