FTR #887 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The ongoing occupation of an Oregon wildlife preserve in Oregon by paramilitary forces led by Ammon Bundy (son of Cliven Bundy) may seem far removed from the gilded realms in which the Koch Brothers move. They may also appear to be of an entirely different political stripe from the likes of Edward Snowden and Julian Assange. That is not the case. In fact, the “Bundyists” are realizing the agenda of the Wise Use movement and the Koch brothers, both advocates of ceding control of federal lands to local control, in order that corporate interests such as timber, mining and cattle ranching can use the territory for their own use and profit. By the same token, the likes of Edward Snowden and Julian Assange have arrogated to themselves the use, control and dissemination of sensitive information that was not theirs to own or distribute. David Golumbia noted the attitude of “coders” such as Snowden, Assange and “hacktivists ” . . . the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it . . . mem­bers of demo­c­ra­tic poli­ties have no choice but to accept them hav­ing that role.” Turning to turmoil in Europe, the recent assaults on women by Middle Eastern immigrants in German, Finnish and other cities on the continent have fueled the rise of fascist groups, minting valuable political coinage from the assaults. Some observers compared a recent rampage in Leipzig with the 1938 Kristallnacht pogrom. The broadcast concludes with an overview of P-2 Lodge grandmaster Licio Gelli, the recently deceased fascist who profoundly influenced events on three continents. Program Highlights Include: Fred C. Koch’s construction of an oil refinery for Hitler; Ex-CIA officer and author Robert Baer’s belief that Hitler escaped Germany at the end of the war; review of the participation of Fox News host Andrew Napolitano and Snowden Presidential candidate of choice Ron Paul at a libertarian students conference; review of the participation of Edward Snowden at that same conference; review of Carl Lundstrom’s financing of the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrat fascist party and his funding of the Pirate Bay website that hosted WikiLeaks.


FTR #886 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 3: Geopolitical Quicksand

Analyzing the possibility that American use of Muslim Brotherhood Islamists as proxy warriors and armed heralds of corporatist free-market economic values might backfire on the United States, we look at the development of ISIS, the curious Turkish about-face on the Fetullah Gulen organization and fallout from the so-called “Arab Spring.” Beginning with discussion of a “doomsday” contingency plan concocted by al-Qaeda and Saddam Hussein to back each other up militarily in the event either or both were overthrown by the U.S., we examine the prominent role of former members of Saddam’s officer corps in administering ISIS. ISIS and al-Qaeda are holding forth in Libya, which is serving as a base for spreading their operations into Africa. Like the bloody Syrian civil war, the overthrow of Khadafy (which set the stage for the Islamist presence in Libya) is an outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring”–one of the “conga-line ops” we highlighted in FTR #885. Much of the program highlights the operations of the Fetullah Gulen organization in Turkey. Alleged to be a CIA front organization and Islamic extremist in nature, the Gulen organization was formerly an ally of Tayyip Erdogan. Now, it is among his most bitter opponents. Program Highlights Include: review of Hitler’s view that Islamists were a crucial Third Reich ally; review of a critical meeting in Switzerland at which prominent Euro-fascists and al-Taqwa director Ahmed Huber met; speculation that the Swiss “Euro-fascist” summit may have helped generate the intelligence disinformation that helped lure the Bush administration into the ill-advised Iraq war; “ex” CIA officer Graham Fuller’s ridicule of the allegation that the Gulen organization is a CIA front organization; the close connections between Erdogan’s AKP Party, Germany and the EU.


FTR #869 The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 2

Continuing discussion and analysis from FTR #868, this program underscores the possible role of Swedish and Scandinavian fascists overlapping both WACL and Sapo, the Swedish intelligence service. Involved with escape networks forged to aid the international flight from justice of fascists and Nazis, the principals in these networks exhibited behavior around the time of the Palme killing that is suggestive. Worth noting in this regard is the late Stieg Larsson’s investigation of the Palme killing, which pointed in the direction of some of the same figures examined in the Kruger essay. The program concludes with an examination of the Bofors munitions firm and its corporate links to Third Reich industry and the postwar Bormann capital network, with which it may well be affiliated.


FTR #868: The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 1

The first of two programs highlighting the unsolved 1986 assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, the broadcast features a 1988 article by the brilliant freelance Danish journalist Henrik Kruger, author of “The Great Heroin Coup: Drugs, Intelligence and International Fascism.” Through this examination of the intersected networks that Kruger has termed (in “The Great Heroin Coup”) “The International Fascista,” we are able to observe the elements of Operation Condor, key individuals and institutions comprising the former World Anti-Communist League, individuals and organizations underlying “the Strategy of Tension” in Italy, as well as the cast of characters that managed the Iran-Contra machinations. Long the focal point of death threats and assassination attempts, Palme had earned the lethal ire of fascists in North and South America, as well as Europe. The failure to solve the killing, despite the passage of almost 30 years and some very strong evidentiary tributaries, underscores the gravitas of the forces that destroyed Palme. Kruger’s article also serves as something of an “in vitro” window into many of the political networks we have examined over the years.


FTR #865 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and “Unholy Alliance”

Ratline highlights the flight of a mysterious Nazi using the alias Georg Anton Poch. Identified as Hitler in a book published in Indonesia, Poch was certainly someone of great importance, though not necessarily Hitler. His odyssey sheds light on the Vatican escape networks known collectively as “The Ratline.” Whoever he was, “Poch,” like so many Nazis, found succor in the Vatican. A Croatian priest–Father Draganovic–was one the prime movers of the Ratline The story of the Ratline and the Vatican’s operational sanctioning of the butchers of the Vatican-backed Croatian Ustachi casts a different historical light on recent events. Pope Francis’s visit to the United States has dominated the news cycle, with some coverage going to the controversy over his canonization of Father Juniper Serra, regarded as a brutal oppressor by Native American archivists. What has received no substantive coverage is the pending beatification of Archbishop Stepinac, a member of the Ustachi parliament during World War II. Program Highlights Include: the stewardship of the main Ustachi concentration camp Jasenovac by Father Filipovic, a Franciscan priest; Fr. Filipovic’s murdering of Serbian children with his bare hands; Operation Bernhard, a key Nazi counterfeiting operation; the many historical outgrowths of Bernhard, including the operations of the Ratline; the use of Stepinac’s church to stash Nazi war loot; Gerald Posner’s “point” role in leading the Bormann-inspired discreditation of Ladislas Farago.


FTR #846 Interview (#9) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

This ninth interview fills in the details concerning a mysterious cast of characters in Indonesia who were investigating the late president Sukarno’s Revolutionary Fund. That fund appears to have derived from large amounts of World War II wealth stolen by Japan and Germany. Dr. Sosro Husodo alleged in a book that a mysterious Nazi named Dr. Anton Poch was actually Hitler. That allegation has never been proved, however the stories of Poch, Husodo, Dr. Edison Damanik and an Indonesian arms dealer named Soeryo Goeritno are indicative of a massive, ongoing cover-up of the political and economic dynamics underlying their situations. Expanding the scope of the inquiry to the capital flows asssociated with the Third Reich, its postwar underground phase and institutions associated with and/or evolving from Nazism, the programs sets forth a number of considerations: the financing of the postwar German economic miracle by German corporations; the frustration of the de-Nazification of corporate Germany by the Third Reich’s prominent American economic backers; the enormous scale of the Nazi economic diaspora; the role of Klaus Barbie and his “Fiancees of Death” in ODESSA-related operations; Colonia Dignidad and its role in laundering ODESSA money.


FTR #825 Generalissimo Francisco Franco May NOT Be So Dead, After All

Fascist dictator Francisco Franco passed away decades ago, yet his political legacy lives on. Throughout Spain, memorialization of Franco and his soldiers continues. The perpetuation of that legacy is evident in the political resume of Mariano Rajoy, the son of a Franco judge. Rajoy’s Popular Party is a “kindler, gentler” edition of Franco’s Falange. In addition to jingoistic saber rattling at the British territory of Gibraltar, Rajoy is joining with Argentina to pressure the UK over the Falkalnd Islands. By dancing in tandem with Argentina, Rajoy is embracing the geo-political legacy of Hitler, who selected Spain as his first target for control because of its influence in Latin America–Argentina in particular.


FTR #810 A Prince Too Far

Pop conspiracy theory casts the Bilderberger group in a sensationalist, politically and historically illiterate “New World Order” context. In this broadcast, we examine the history of Prince Bernhard, the former SS officer and I.G. Farben spy who founded the group, against the background of the Battle of Arnhem (Operation Market Garden) in September of 1944. As head of the Dutch “resistance,” apparent double agent Bernhard sacrificed a resistance fighter named Christian Lindemans (code named “King Kong”), who took the blame for the deliberate betrayal of the Allied battle plan. Sabotage of the Arnhem operation has also been partly attributed to Peter Carrington (later Lord Carrington and former British Foreign Secretary during the run-up to the Falkalands War.) Attacked for his stunning lack of insight with regard to the Argentine fascist junta’s invasion of those islands, Carrington has never been properly vetted with regard to the betrayal of part of the British battle plan for the Falkalnds campaign. The program also examines the fascist activities and involvements of Bernhard’s heirs in the Royal Family of the Netherlands.


FTR #806 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Continuing our updates of previous stories and coverage of articles that surfaced during the hiatus in For The Record production, we present information that will serve as the foundation of future–as well as past inquiries. Beginning with the Boston Marathon bombing, we note that the Tsarnaev brothers appear to have had [as yet unspecified] help in making their bombs. In addition, the program highlights stunning information bout the 1980 Munich Oktoberfest bombing, indicating complicity by German government officials in the event, as well as evidentiary tributaries leading in the direction of Klaus Barbie’s Bridesgrooms of Death mercenary group. After highlighting attempts by Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon to use Underground Reich elements to destabilize the German government of Willy Brandt, the broadcast sets forth the European Space Agency’s employment of Project HAARP developer Bernard “Ben” Eastlund to develop technology ostensibly designed to neutralize tornadoes. Tornadoes do not occur in Europe and critics have stated that the technology might actually make tornadoes more destructive.


“The City of Elevation” Comes into View Once Again: Muslim Brotherhood Moves Headquarters to Graz, Austria

An interesting development concerns the Muslim Brotherhood’s relocation of their headquarters to Graz, Austria and three other unnamed European cities. Graz was a city that enjoyed Hitler’s favor and was an epicenter for postwar Underground Reich activity. Muslim Brotherhood lynchpin and apparent former Third Reich intelligence agent Youssef Nada resided there in the 1960’s, as did a number of other Brotherhood activists. the Schwarzenegger family also had links to the Graz area.
