FTR #813 Return of the Rising Sun, Part 3

Grandson of the Japanese war criminal who signed that country’s declaration of war against the U.S., Shinzo Abe is following in the footsteps of Nobosuke Kishi (his grandfather), as well as those of Kishi’s associates in Japan’s expansionist empire. Revising school textbooks about World War II, passing a new secrecy law, instituting greater state control of news media, dramatically increasing defense spending while moving to alter the constitution to permit a more militaristic agenda, Abe is turning back the Japanese historical and political clock. Japanese government officials are openly sanctioning anti-Korean racism and networking with organizations that promote that doctrine. Several members of Abe’s government network with Japanese neo-Nazis. Vice-Prime Minister Taro Aso is a longtime admirer of Nazi political strategy and advocates using the Nazi method for seizing power to sneak constitutional change past the Japanese public.


Were there Nazis in Atlantis? The Gospel According to Ramtha (aka J.Z. Knight)

J.Z. Knight (right) has built a successful organization by claiming to channel an ancient “Atlantean/Lemurian” Warrior named Ramtha. In addition to lubricating the spiritual cognition of her acolytes with copious amounts of wine, Knight/Ramtha has disseminated profoundly disparaging views of various groups, including gays, Mexicans, Jews and organic farmers. Knight/Ramtha’s views have found resonance on the Stormfront website, arguably the leading neo-Nazi and white supremacist website.


FTR #793 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Updating and introducing a number of stories, this program notes the death of Nazi art dealer Cornelius Gurlitt, highlighted in FTR #791. After detailing the background and political connections of Frazier Glenn Miller, accused of killing three people at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas, the program highlights the growing control of American media outlets by doctrinaire fascist organizations with a heritage evolving from World War II. In addition to the spectacular growth of publishing giant Bertelsmann, with a Nazi and SS heritage, the broadcast underscores the control of the Al-Jazeera network by the Muslim Brotherhood. The curious advertising behavior of BMW, controlled by the heirs of Joseph Goebbels is set forth, as well.


Newsweek Publisher Has Unification Church Background

In FTR #291, we examined the Unification Church as an extension of the Japanese Patriotic Societies, that brought fascism to Japan through a program of political assassination and propaganda. David Jang, whose business enterprises control both Newsweek and The International Business Times, has a background in the Unification Church, formerly headed by the Reverend Sun Myung Moon.


Dark Cloud on the Rising Sun

In his second stint as Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe is rebooting the right-wing political agenda he pursued during his first term in the last decade. The grandson of prominent Japanese war criminal Nobosuke Kishi, Abe is implementing revisionist politics designed to obfuscate Japan’s actions during World War II, including editing textbooks to change written history of the war, implementing a new secrecy law, bring the respected NHK television network under government control and negating accounts of Japanese war crimes.


Whither Japan? Divine Wind, Take 2?

In numerous broadcasts, we have covered the sad reality that in post World War II Japan, the public perception that the forces of fascism were eradicated is a deliberately cultivated political myth. Japanese prime minister Abe has embarked on a program of militarism, with one of his top defense advisers highlighting a campaign appearance by reading from the diary of a Kamikaze pilot, who died crashing his plane into an American warship. UPDATED ON 8/9/2013.


Winds of War Blowing over Northern Pacific Islands?

There has been a significant uptick in real or alleged military confrontations over disputed islands in the North Pacific. Conservative commentator Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has noted the possible drift toward war between Japan and China over uninhibited and disputed Islands. Japan has also accused Russia of fomenting confrontation over the disputed Kuriles.


Now, About those School Yard Shootings . . .

With the nation and much of the world focused on the gruesome shootings in Newtown, Connectcut, we revisit the topic of the schoolyard shootings. In past programs, we have noted that a number of the [alleged] perpetrators of the school shootings have links to Nazi and white supremacist groups. A form of terrorism, these massacres destabilize society, leading to the popular sentiment for “order.” Endorsed by some elements of popular culture, the schoolyard shootings are functioning in a manner analogous to the Fritz Haarmann incident in Weimar Germany. That serial murder of more than a hundred juveniles, whose corpses were butchered and baked into meat pies, discredited the authorities of Weimar Germany, helping to sow sentiment that would benefit the Nazis.


Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish: Sun Myung Moon Exits Stage Far Right

A self-proclaimed messiah who viewed the political subjugation of the United States as essential, Sun Myung Moon headed the Unification Church. With strong connections to the Bush family and elements of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Unification Church appears to be an extension of the Japanese patriotic and ultranationalist societies that brought fascism to Japan. The group’s primary funding may well come from Japanese heavy industry, the Mitsubishi Corporation, in particular. Moon has finally passed away at age 92.
