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.


FTR #837 Cauldron: Update on Ukraine

With the possibility of nuclear war lurking over the political horizon, the tragi-comic nature of Western and U.S. journalistic coverage of Ukraine continues to appall. Citing phony photographs provided by associates of the Ukrainian government, as well as “evidence” provided by Cold War spin-off company DigitalGlobe, the U.S. is leaving itself vulnerable to the possibility of provocation by the OUN/B heirs it has supported in Kiev. As the halting investigation into the Maidan coup and the sniper attacks that precipitated it generates more information, it is becoming clearer that sniper fire at the Maidan demonstrations may well have originated with the anti-government forces controlled by the Nazi Svoboda and similar organizations. Major points of discussion in this program include: the continued influx of foreign nationals to run the “Ukrainian” government; the criminal record of former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili, a newly appointed adviser to Poroshenko; continued portrayal of Ukrainian Nazi storm troopers as credible journalistic sources; slips by Ukrainian media personnel indicating the false nature of reports of Russian invasion; nuclear saber rattling by a high-ranking Ukrainian government official; a plan to shoot deserters from the Ukrainian army.
