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 #832 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 5: “We All Remember Well the Soviet Invasion of Ukraine and Germany”

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk–one of that country’s key political figures–said on German television “We all remember well the Soviet invasion of Ukraine.” This unchallenged statement referred to the Second World War! This fundamental perversion of history is in keeping with the scenario advanced in the Nazi tract “Serpent’s Walk,” in which a Third Reich gone underground takes over the United States and uses its control of the opinion-forming media to portray Hitler and his minions as heroes and their enemies as villains. In Ukraine, we are seeing just that. The current government of Ukraine is an annex of the Third Reich, with the OUN/B heirs in power executing a political agenda dictated by Hitler allies Stephan Bandera and Yaroslav Stetsko. Program highlights include: Russian president Putin’s exclusion from the ceremonies celebrating the liberation of Auschwitz by Soviet troops; the media’s use of relativistic language couching the historical reality of OUN/B’s alliance with Hitler as “Russian” propaganda; FOIA documents verifying OUN’s effective maintenance of a National Socialist government in exile; the probability that Ukraine’s “anti-corruption” bureau will be headed by a foreign national; Ukraine’s denial of entitlements to elderly and disabled residents of Eastern Ukraine–a war crime; NATO’s formation of a media phalanx to counter what they term “Kremlin propaganda” and what is verifiable poltical and historical reality!


FTR #829 Fireside Chat about Eddie the Friendly Spook and the Ukraine Crisis

A controversy ensued when it emerged that House majority whip Steve Scalise had attended a meeting of David Duke’s European-American Unity Organization. The newly-seated GOP-dominated congress which Scalise will help to guide began attacking Social Security on its very first day. Specifically, the GOP began attacking the Social Security disability program. These developments serve as a point of entry into our discussion. Snowden is an advocate of eliminating Social Security and the OUN/B fascists running Ukraine are engaging in a similar program to force those in Eastern Ukraine to stop their attempts at secession. The elements of the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” are networked with Duke, as well. Snowden’s leaking journalist of choice, Nazi fellow-traveler Glenn Greenwald, has been financed by Pierre Omidyar of Ebay, who has also financed the Ukraine coup. The program notes many other elements of confluence between the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” and the Ukrainian coup. The Snowden/WikiLeaks helped to deep-six Obama’s “reboot with Russia” and also alienate many of the young, idealistic voters who had supported him in 2008, thereby helping to elect the 114th Congress.


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?


FTR #811 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 4

With another anniversary of the 9/11 attacks having passed, it is interesting to contemplate the ongoing damage from the unlearned lessons concerning those attacks. Before discussing ongoing support for Caucasian and Chechen jihadist elements by elements of U.S., Western and Saudi intelligence, the program highlights the bogus intelligence about a supposed “Russian invasion” of Ukraine that does not appear to have occurred at all. Much of the supposed intelligence on this “invasion” comes from satellite photos, showing what are supposed to be Russian armored and artillery elements in Ukraine. These photos are NOT from U.S. reconnaissance satellites, but come from a private company–DigitalGlobe. Founded by veterans of Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” program (The Strategic Defense Initiative), the company’s executives have CV’s involving work for Bain (Mitt Romney’s firm) and IHS, the Thyssen/Bornemisza group firm that is the epicenter of the Peak Oil doctrine. Accessing archival information about support for Chechen Islamists by elements of U.S., Western and Saudi intelligence, the program notes the involvement of Ukrainian fascists from the UNA/UNSO organization in Chechnya and the Caucasus. The reported combat expertise of ISIS is said by some analysts to have evolved from the participation in that group of Chechen veterans, making our slippery slope involvement against the group blowback–to an extent–from the West’s proxy warriors in the Caucasus. As was the case in Afghanistan–where the U.S. fought a bloody, indecisive war against jihadists crafted to fight against the U.S.S.R. and subsequently Russia–we once again find American military forces engaged against jihadists being used as proxy warriors by elements of the transnational corporate elite and allied national security elements. The program concludes with a closer look at the historical background to some recent propaganda in the New York Times’ op-ed page, ascribing Russian responsibility to the 1999 assassinations of Armenian political leaders by the Dashnags, an Armenian nationalist group with longstanding historical links to Ukrainian fascists and other elements of international fascism and the Underground Reich.


U.S. Military Exercise in Ukraine on Friday

As a Forbes article notes, despite a Russian-negotiated cease-fire in Ukraine, U.S. military forces will be participating in a NATO exercise in Ukraine. As noted in the article (referencing a Spiegel article), the NATO “Drang Nach Osten” toward Russia’s border is in direct violation of an agreement between the U.S.S.R. and the West.


Robert Parry on the “Russian Invasion” of Ukraine

In FTR #808, we examined the highly dubious claims of a “Russian invasion” of Ukraine. Among the painfully limited voices supporting our profound doubts about the accuracy of those claims is Robert Parry of Consortium News. It appears that intelligence professionals of his acquaintance dismiss the accuracy of the dangerously irresponsible claims of Russian invasion and have taken the trouble to communicate their analysis to Angela Merkel.


FTR #808 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 3 (“How Many Lies Can You Allow Yourself to Believe Before You Belong to the Lie?”)

Political comedian Mort Sahl (one of New Orleans DA Jim Garrison’s investigators into the JFK assassination) asked in his autobiography “Heartland”; “How many lies can you allow yourself to believe before you belong to the lie?” In the gathering storm in Ukraine, decades of institutional lying from the Second World War, through the Cold War and into the present appears to have gained ownership over contemporary America. Having taken in the intelligence and political residua of the Third Reich and its Central and Eastern European allies, America resurrected and perpetuated the political and ideological banner of fascism. Adhering to grossly and deliberately distorted intelligence during the Cold War, the political landscape evolving from that distortion is governing contemporary perceptions and actions. This program updates the actions of the OUN/B heirs in Ukraine and their political and ideological allies elsewhere in the former Warsaw Pact countries. At the core of this analysis is the nurturing of the Hitler-conceived Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations within Western intelligence and the GOP, its projection into Eastern Europe and the former U.S.S.R. during the final stages of the Cold War and and how we are now dominated by the political Frankenstein’s monster we created in that part of the world.


BND in 1950’s: “We Should Sound Out Opinions There [in The SS] Before Making a Decision”

A recent piece in Der Spiegel discusses what we are told was an “underground army” composed of Third Reich Wehrmacht and SS veterans. Closely linked with the Gehlen “Org,” the clandestine army had the approval of the German government, worked with the Bundeswehr general staff, appeared to receive secret funding from the U.S. and utilized the services of ODESSA kingpin Otto Skorzeny [right]. BND officers overseeing the group advised that the SS should be consulted [present tense] about the operation.


The Fires This Time

Robert Parry notes the OUN/B heritage of Swoboda and Pravy Sektor in the current Ukrainian government, correlating that Nazi heritage with the lethal firebombing of pro-Russian demonstrators in the Black Sea port city of Odessa. Apparently perpetrated by a street-fighting contingent acting in accordance with the tactical principles of both Pravy Sektor (at right) and Swoboda, the firebombing is reminiscent of the massacre of residents of the city of Huta Pienacka in Ukraine by the Galician Division (14th Waffen SS.) In addition, Parry notes an OUN/B involvement with the Reagan administration’s U.S. Information Agency and Radio Liberty, coloring broadcasts in the 1980’s in a pro-Nazi fashion.
