“Enthusiastic Hitlerite” Eleanor–The Third Side of The Dulles Iron Triangle

” . . . Few people outside of the United States had heard of Miss Dulles since she won notoriety during the Roosevelt era as being pro-Hitler. But her quiet, square-jawed personality, much like her two elder brothers, had a lot to do with building up a strong, remilitarized Germany. . . . an ‘enthusiastic Hitlerite’ . . . Miss Dulles remained the key German adviser to her brother [John Foster] during his career as Secretary of State.”


Volodymyr Viatrovych’s American Sojourn and the Orwellian Rewrite of Ukraine’s World War II History

FTR #901 Fascism: Past, Present and Future

Collaboration by powerful, influential Western and American institutions has enabled the perpetuation of what Mr. Emory calls “The Underground Reich.” In addition to the corporate interests who backed the Axis, journalistic organizations such as the Associated Press collaborated–the legacy of that collaboration being a distorted view of history. Much of the program highlights the return “above-ground” of political elements of the Underground Reich. In Ukraine, the heirs to the OUN/B fascists continue to gain gravitas politically and militarily. The openly Nazi Azov Battalion will now receive funding and training from the U.S. government, thanks to the omnibus funding bill passed in December of 2015. With Ukrainian members of Parliament openly manifesting their Nazi sympathies, those who profess to be “shocked, shocked” at developments should reconsider their point of view. In Croatia, Ustachi elements have gained control of the government, as attested to by the outgoing prime minister. Croatian cultural events, such as football [soccer] matches continue to experience open celebration of pro-Ustacha sentiment. After reviewing the Crusade For Freedom and its projection of Eastern European Nazi collaborators into the GOP, the program highlights the Nazi-like political agenda of the AfD. Represented as “anti-immigrant,” it embraces a quasi-eugenics agenda and historical revisionism reminiscent of the NSDAP’s agenda. The program concludes with a look at the future of fascism, with Nazi hacker extraordinaire Andrew “Weev” Auernheimer having hacked printers and made them spew white supremacist propaganda, as well as tweeting Nazi ideology in such as manner as to (apparently) augment his stash of Bitcoins. The program features a look at Tay, the Microsoft AI “chatbot” that turned into a Nazi 24 hours after going online. Program Highlights Include: the AP’s use of SS press liaison Franz Roth as a photo editor; the AP’s cover-up of the Lviv pogroms in Ukraine; the direct association of Croatian culture minister Zlatko Hasanbegovic with the son-in-law of Croatian World War II dictator Ante Pavelic; Auernhemer’s association with Glenn Greenwald; Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko being allowed to address to the Knesset–the Israeli parliament–despite his having laid a wreath in tribute to the OUN/B at the site of the Babi Yar massacre (1200 of the 1800 executioners at Babi Yar were from the OUN/B); the elevation of Svoboda party member Andriy Parubiy to be the speaker of the Ukrainian parliament; the use of the “14 words” by Svoboda politicians in Ukraine, as well as Auernheimer; recap of Croatian footballer Joe Simunic’s leading of a crowd in the “Za Dom Spremni” Ustachi chant.


Why Did Gerard Williams and Simon Dunstan Receive Death Threats for Writing About Hitler’s Escape?

In FTR #791, we presented the research of Gerrard Williams and Simon Dunstan indicating that Allen Dulles and Martin Bormann struck a deal to effect the escape of Adolf Hitler. The authors have been receiving death threats: “. . . Yesterday . . .Williams. . . . said: ‘We have ruffled some very big feathers. Traditional historians don’t like it and certain governments don’t like it. We have had some death threats already.'” 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.

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 #818 Can You Put Lipstick on a Nazi? (Part 3): Update on Ukraine and Timeline of Ukrainian Fascism

Further analyzing the recent Ukrainian elections, the broadcast highlights the incorporation of fascist and Nazi personnel into the so-called “moderate” forces in that unfortunate country. In turn, the “moderates” have implemented political steps advocated by the fascists. Exemplary of this dynamic is Petro Poroshenko’s support for “lustration laws.” Ostensibly designed to root out the marrow-deep corruption that has plagued Ukraine and spurred social unrest, the laws are a violation of international principle and appear to be aimed at further purging Russian influence in that country. Poroshenko’s “point person” pushing support of the lustration laws is Svitlana Zalishchuk, who received financial support from Pierre Omidyar, Glenn Greenwald’s financial angel. Several members of the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, including its commander Andriy Biletsky, have been elected to Parliament. The deputy commander of the Azov Battalion is the new chief of police in Kiev.


FTR #817 Can You Put Lipstick on a Nazi? (Part 2): Update on Ukraine

The Ukrainian election results have produced hosannas in the West about the far-right parties having been marginalized in the vote. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Svoboda–one of the OUN/B heirs on the Ukrainian political landscape–has representation in parliament, as does the Radical Party of Oleg (“Oleh”) Lyashko, who helped form many of the fascist militias active in the civil war in the nation’s Eastern section. Dimytro Yarosh, head of Pravy Sektor also won a seat in parliament, though Pravy Sektor fared poorly at the polls. What has received little coverage is the fact that the so-called “moderate,” “pro-EU” parties such as Poroshenko’s party and Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front have incorporated some of the worst of the Ukrainian fascists. Poroshenko has OUN/B wartime president Jaroslav Stetsko’s personal secretary (Roman Svarych) as an adviser, along with Oleh Makhnitsky, the former justice minister from Svoboda. Yatsenyuk has people from the fascist Azov Battalion in the ranks of his organization. The effects of having people from Svoboda in charge of the judicial process can be sampled from the attempt to pin the sniper killings in the Maidan demonstrations on a leader of Yanukovich’s security forces. “Photographed” holding a sniper rifle with two hands–supposedly the “proof”–Dmytro Sadovnyk only has ONE hand, having lost the other to a grenade in a training accident years ago. The Poroshenko government has been using cluster munitions against its own citizens.


FTR #816 Revisiting the 1972 Olympics Massacre

Revisiting the subject of the 1972 Olympics massacre, we probe more deeply into the underlying dynamics of that event. Having noted in AFA #22 that security for the games was handled by a BND agent named Hans Langemann, we review his work covering up for the neo-Nazis behind the Oktoberfest bombing of 1980. German neo-Nazis also aided the Black September terrorists who perpetrated the Olympics massacre. Despite the fact that the German government had advanced warning of the impending attack, no preventive action was taken. After the attacks, the German government was in close touch with the perpetrators and downplaying the significance of the incident. Willi Pohl, one of the neo-Nazis involved who assisted Black September with the 1972 attack, began working in a counter-terror capacity for the CIA. Black September chief Ali Hassan Salameh, in charge of the attacks, was also impressed into duty with CIA, having been recruited while Henry Kissinger was astride of Richard Nixon’s national security policy. In speculative mode, we ask if there MAY be a connection between Kissinger’s efforts to destabilize the Willi Brandt government–undertaken conjunction with Third Reich veterans–and the Olympics massacre?
