FTR #784 “First, Tame the Intellectuals . . . .”

Sev­er­al Swo­bo­da par­lia­men­tary deputies roughed up the direc­tor of the largest state TV sta­tion in Ukraine and forced his resignation–this because he broad­cast excerpts of Putin’s speech about the annex­a­tion of Crimea. The assault was led by Ihor Mirosh­ny­chenko, the Deputy Chair of the par­lia­men­tary Com­mit­tee on Free­dom of Speech and Infor­ma­tion! Like the U.S. media, the Ger­man media have been sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly mis­rep­re­sent­ing Swo­bo­da as some­thing oth­er than the fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion it clear­ly is. Much of the pro­gram deals with the nature of the so-called demo­c­ra­t­ic oppo­si­tion in Rus­sia, about which we’ve heard so much cat­er­waul­ing of late. In par­tic­u­lar, the pro­gram high­lights the true polit­i­cal cache of Alex­ei Naval­ny, recent­ly fea­tured as an op-ed writer in The New York Times.


What’s Wrong with This Picture?

In the after­math of the Ukraine coup, want­ed posters for for­mer pres­i­dent Yanukovich sprang up all over that coun­try and were lib­er­al­ly dis­trib­uted in the media. QUICK: If you were going to craft and dis­trib­ute want­ed posters in the Unit­ed States, would you have the text in Ukrain­ian?


The Ukraine Has 25% of the World’s Proven Natural Gas Reserves

A fac­tor that is cen­tral to the Ukrain­ian sit­u­a­tion is that coun­try’s nat­ur­al gas reserves. The Ukraine has a quar­ter of the world’s proven nat­ur­al gas reserves. Those reserves may well be seen as the answer to the EU’s ener­gy sit­u­a­tion. We won­der if the Fis­ch­er-Trop­sch process might be used to derive motor fuel from that nat­ur­al gas, as is being done in the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-affil­i­at­ed nation of Qatar.


FTR #773 The Boston Marathon Bombing, the Third Position and the Leaderless Resistance Strategy

Many of the same ele­ments that fig­ured in the failed inves­ti­ga­tion into the 9/11 attacks crop up in con­nec­tion with the Boston Marathon bomb­ing, as well. In addi­tion to intel­li­gence ele­ments linked to the GOP/Petroleum/Underground Reich ele­ment of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty, there are indi­ca­tions that the accused bombers may have been indoc­tri­nat­ed with domes­tic fas­cist ide­ol­o­gy. An appar­ent ter­ror­ist attack on a PG & E pow­er sub­sa­tion at the same time may indi­cate that the “lead­er­less resis­tance” strat­e­gy is being man­i­fest­ed here.


Curveball II: Is the BND (German Intelligence) Gaming the Syrian Civil War? (Another Good Reason NOT to Intervene in Syria)

BND, the Ger­man intel­li­gence ser­vice claims they can con­firm Assad’s use of chem­i­cal weapons. BND oper­ates a com­mu­ni­ca­tions intel­li­gence-gath­er­ing ship off the coast in that area (pic­tured at right.) Pre­vi­ous­ly, BND han­dled “Curve­ball,” a key source of dis­in­for­ma­tion about the Iraq war. Prince Ban­dar is alleged to have armed the rebels with chem­i­cal weapons. The polit­i­cal devel­op­ments are ben­e­fit­ing Ger­many and the Under­ground Reich.


What’s 20 Trillion Dollars Between Friends? McGraw-Hill and Petroleum Price Fixing (Now THIS Is a Scandal!)

The biased Amer­i­can news media–ANYTHING but liberal–continue to obsess on the so-called scan­dals that are enmesh­ing Oba­ma’s admin­is­tra­tion (as we pre­dict­ed would hap­pen from the day of his elec­tion.) The Amer­i­can fourth estate has man­aged to over­look an appar­ent $20 tril­lion oil price rip-off facil­i­tat­ed by a sub­sidiary of McGraw-Hill, owned by a fam­i­ly that have been polit­i­cal allies of the Bush­es for gen­er­a­tions.


What Has General Wesley Clark Been Doing since His Retirement?

I.G. Far­ben’s Fis­ch­er-Trop­sch process is expe­ri­enc­ing an indus­tri­al renais­sance. In Koso­vo, for­mer NATO com­man­der Gen­er­al Wes­ley Clark is chair­man of a com­pa­ny using it to pro­duce syn­thet­ic fuel from Kosovo’s coal deposits. Coin­ci­den­tal­ly (?) the head of NATO peace­keep­ing forces in Koso­vo was the son of Nazi war crmi­nal and Third Reich finance min­istry offi­cial Fritz Rein­hardt.


Strange Twist in the Clements Murder Case

The chief sus­pect in the mur­der of Col­orado Cor­rec­tions chief Tom Clements was affil­i­at­ed with white-suprema­cist prison gangs, accord­ing to author­i­ties. Now comes the news that the sus­pec­t’s father was close friends with and a cam­paign con­trib­u­tor to, the gov­er­nor of Col­orado.


Who and/or What is Behind the Fetullah Gulen Organization?

Big in the US, Gulen orga­ni­za­tion accused of dirty tricks, CIA/Is­lamist/­Pan-Turk­ist affil­i­a­tions. Is a “neo-Ottoman Empire” the goal?


The Al-Dura Hoax: Another Judicial Ruling in the Case of Philippe Karsenty

Over­whelm­ing evi­dence that Israeli killing of Pales­tin­ian boy in 2000 was a hoax. Lit­i­ga­tion mov­ing through French courts.
