FTR #874 Update on Fascism and the New Age

In this program, we continue our intermittent examination of areas of overlap between the New Age and fascism. In FTR #873, we examined how the Atlantis myth has fed directly into Nazi occultism and “polygenesis,” a key feature of scientific racism. Inextricably linked with the notion of space aliens having spawned the “Aryan race,” the concept of Atlantis has spawned the enterprise of J.Z. Knight, aka “Ramtha.” Purporting to be the channeled spirit of a 35,000-year-old Atlantean/Lemurian warrior, Ramtha/Knight have disseminated a racist, anti-Semitic philosophy. Next, we turn to examination of a major constellation in the New Age firmament–the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Based in Petaluma, California, the institute was co-founded by SS officer, Third Reich and NASA rocket scientist and Project Paperclip import Werner von Braun. Another of the co-founders is former EXXON executive Paul Temple, who also is deeply involved with Abraham Vereide’s Fellowship Foundation. In FTR #697, we examined the strong connections between Vereide’s group, the Third Reich and post-war Underground Reich-connected elements. After examining Josef F. Blumrich, a key NASA official and alumnus of the Third Reich’s aerospace industry who advocates contact between the ancients and UFOs/space aliens, we conclude with a re-broadcast of FTR #170, detailing “The Nine.” Overlapping many aspects of the New Age, The Nine purport to be the ancient gods of Egypt, extraterrestrials and many other manifestations of the New Age. Apparently evolved from elements of the intelligence community’s mind control programs, The Nine also reinforce the concept of polygenesis.


FTR #873 The New Age, Fascism and the Atlantis Myth

The gulf between Nazism and the so-called New Age might seem to be so wide as to be unbridgeable. Sadly, that is not the case.

At the core of Nazi belief was occultism, drawing on Pan-Germanic mythology deriving from the Thule Society, ariosophy, elements of Hindu religious doctrine and more commonly recognizable belief systems such as astrology. The SS Ahnenerbe drew together many of these threads and anointed them with a mantle of respectability. As a result, New Age sects and religion have frequently dovetailed with elements of Nazi and fascist philosophy.

We introduce the theme of the program with discussion of some huge works of art in Kazakhstan. Note that an analyst referred dismissively to the notion that these were built by ancient astronauts linked to Hitler, Atlantis, the Hyperboreans, Lemuria and/or any number of common focal points of Nazi occultism. One of the principle features of the “Nazi/Atlantis/New Age synthesis” is a fundamentally racist concept called “polygenesis.” Inherent in the contention that parts of the human species originated from outer space, Atlantis, etc., polygenesis is central to the “scientific racism” propagated by eugenicists and their Nazi pupils. Among the edifices sited by occult polygenesis advocates is Tiwanaku in Bolivia, seen by SS officer Edmund Kiss as proof of the settlement of Latin America by “Aryans” from Atlantis, Hyperborea, Lemuria etc.

The notion of an ancient, Aryan-controlled past brought low by “sub-humans,” (generally grouped around “Da Joos”) recalls a common feature of fascism–a preoccupation with a long-gone, idealized past. The program highlights the political and religious philosophy of “esoteric Nazism,” a subject we will explore in our next program as well. One of the prime exponents of “esoteric Nazism” was Miguel Serrano, a Chilean Nazi who was also discussed in our conversations with Peter Levenda.

Fusing traditional Nazi anti-Semitism with various occult strains, Serrano posited that the Nazis and Hitler were the manifestation of an otherworldly and superior civilization which would ultimately triumph after an apocalyptic, catastrophic war involving UFOs, Aryans from Antarctica, “Hyperborea” etc. The Nazi/New Age/Atlantis theory pre-supposes a mythic, idealized past and exemplifies the notion of Nazism as a cult–a form of weaponized religion.


FTR #870 The Underground Reich and Indonesia

This program is set against the background of our recent discussions with Peter Levenda about the profound Nazi presence in Indonesia before, during and after World War II. The bloody 1965 coup against Sukarno is known to have been largely engineered by the CIA. We now learn that the BND–the German foreign intelligence service and the final incarnation of the Gehlen spy outfit–played a major role in the coup, as well. The apparent BND point man for the Federal Republic’s role in the coup was Rudolf Oebsger-Roder, like so many Gehlen org officers, a veteran of the SS. The second half of the broadcast consists of a reading of a section of Terence McKenna’s book “True Hallucinations.” McKenna allegedly came across a German mining engineer working for what may well have been the post-war Bormann capital network.


Gehlen, BND, and the Indonesian Coup of 1965

The bloody 1965 coup against Sukarno is known to have been largely engineered by the CIA, which had pursued operation “Archipelago” since the 1950’s. The BND–the German foreign intelligence service and the final incarnation of the Gehlen spy outfit–played a major role in the coup, as well, apparently guided by Rudolf Oebsger-Roder, the SS veteran and BND station chief.

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 #864 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and Other Books

Immigration has dominated the news recently, with the flood of refugees from the wars in the Middle East overwhelming European infrastructure as the phenomenon dominates political debate. Donald Trump capitalizes on anti-immigrant xenophobia to lead the field of presumptive GOP Presidential candidates. In The Hitler Legacy, Peter noted anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia as part of “The Hitler Legacy.” Turning to what might be described as the “prequel” to The Hitler Legacy, we highlight “Ratline.” Dealing with the story of the mysterious Dr. Anton Poch, we analyze the disappearance of Adolf Hitler. One of the main focal points of discussion concerns the “official” version of Hitler’s death is The Last Days of Hitler by Hugh Trevor-Roper. Trevor-Roper was an agent for MI6 (British intelligence) at the time and the writing and publication of his book was, in and of itself, an intelligence operation–a “psy-op” called Operation Nursery. Program Highlights Include: a comparison of Operation Nursery to the Warren Commission and its report; discussion of Paul Leverkuhn, a Nazi spy who was the head of the European Union when he attended the first Bilderberg meeting.

FTR #847 Interview (#10) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

In this broadcast, we continue to “Follow the Money” and analyze its primary role in the perpetuation of Nazism and its attendant methodologies and resultant ills. Peter notes that the postwar Nazi Underground constituted a “government-in-exile” and “an army in exile.” “Following the money” moved by what Mr. Emory calls The Underground Reich inevitably leads to Francois Genoud, Hjalmar Schacht and the extensive postwar Nazi connections to Middle Eastern anti-colonial, anti-Israel and terrorist milieux. The Third Reich and its postwar underground manifestation directly impacted, intersected with, and formed the operational template for, many of the world’s terrorist organizations. Recapping previous discussion of the Third Reich as a “cult” or spiritual movement, Peter notes that this “Underground Reich” not only is a parallel entity to contemporary Islamist terror groups, but has actively dovetailed with them. Program highlights include: terrorists’ abuse of the ancient hawala system of money transfer; discussion of the Bank Al-Taqwa; the use of Islamists against China; analysis of the “Tri-Border” area in Latin America; Germany’s return to power in Europe.


FTR #845 Interview (#8) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Picking up where FTR #844 left off, this program examines developments in Indonesia after the 1965 CIA coup that deposed Sukarno. An apparent participant in an unsuccessful 1958 attempt against Sukarno was Lee Harvey Oswald. Before tackling the bulk of the Indonesia material, Peter notes that the supposed “Communist” Oswald actually had connections to Nazi elements. After an encapsulation of the Japanese Golden Lily program that looted much of Asia, the program sets forth some of the mysteries that unfold in connection with the disposition of Sukarno’s “Revolutionary Fund.” Apparently comprised of both Golden Lily treasure and war loot transported to the Asia by the Third Reich, the Revolutionary Fund has defied efforts by Sukarno family members and associates to obtain some of the wealth. Among the cast of characters winding through the mysterious corridors of the Revolutionary Fund investigative maze are: a mysterious Dr. Poch, alleged in an Indonesian best seller by Dr. Susro Husodo to have been Adolf Hitler; the professional frustration and mysterious demise of Dr. Edison Damanik, who attempted to obtain some of the Revolutionary Fund loot; arms dealer Soeryo Goeritno, who suffered a disabling stroke or seizure when he attempted to navigate the perilous waters of the Revolutionary Fund and its tributaries.


FTR #844 Interview (#7) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Peter Levenda’s “The Hitler Legacy” is, in Mr. Emory’s opinion, one of the most important political books ever written. This seventh interview with Peter about the book sets forth the powerful Nazi presence in Indonesia prior to, during, and after World War II. In addition to the significant presence of the Dutch Nazi party in Indonesia, the NSDAP also had a significant presence in this former colony of the Netherlands. The most populous Muslim country in the world, Indonesia was seen as the key element in an Islamist bulwark against Communist China. This stratagem was envisioned by Charles Willoughby, General Douglas MacArthur’s intelligence chief and a doctrinaire fascist. Although supportive of Axis conquest of the Netherlands and Indonesia, which he saw as freeing the archipelago from colonial domination, Sukarno espoused a “Third Way” at the conference of Non-Aligned nations in Bandung in 1955. This led the US to see him as a Communist and begin attempts to depose him. In order to provide financing for Indonesia and other Third World countries, Sukarno appears to have turned to Hjalmar Schacht, Hitler’s finance minister, who utilized Nazi gold shipments to Asia to “prime the economic pump” for this abortive project.
