Jaroslav Stetsko’s Personal Secretary Serves as the Azov Battalion’s Spokesman

The spokesman–and apologist–for the Nazi Azov Battalion in Ukraine is Roman Zvarych. Zvarych was the personal secretary to Jaroslav Stetsko–the head of the World War II Nazi collaborationist OUN/B government. Azov is now receiving U.S. government funding.

FTR #907 Update on Ukraine

Supplementing our many previous programs on Ukraine, this broadcast further develops the Orwellian re-write of World War II history, as well as chronicling the deep political history of the Ukrainian diaspora, its alliance with the Third Reich and its profound presence prior to, and during, World War II. An article in “Foreign Policy”–a mainstream publication–notes the role of Volodymyr Viatrovych in turning Ukrainian World War II history on its head.

Hired originally by Viktor Yuschenko to head the Orwellian-named “Institute for National Memory,” Viatrovych decamped to the U.S. after the election of the Yanukovich government, only to return to Ukraine and resume his revisionist work under Petro Poroshenko. Recasting the Third Reich allies and genocidal collaborators of the OUN/B as heroes and rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust, Viatrovych has been complemented in his work by eduction minister Serhiy Kvit and Yuriy Shukhevych, the son of UPA chief Roman Shukhevych. (The UPA was the military wing of the OUN/B.) In Ukraine, it is now a crime to say anything critical about the OUN/B or UPA.

The measure of the revisionism underway in Ukraine can be gauged by this statement about UPA policy toward the Poles: “. . . . UPA supreme commander Dmytro Kliachkivs’kyi explicitly stated: ‘We should carry out a large-scale liquidation action against Polish elements. During the evacuation of the German Army, we should find an appropriate moment to liquidate the entire male population between 16 and 60 years old.’ Given that over 70 percent of the leading UPA cadres possessed a background as Nazi collaborators, none of this is surprising. . . .” Recounting that quote would be a crime in Ukraine!

Much of the program consists of a recounting of the Ukrainian Fifth Column in the United States and its collaboration with the Third Reich. The German General Staff had been grooming Ukrainians as allies during the closing stages of the First World War and its aftermath, culminating with the formation of the OUN as an extension of Nazi imperial designs. Embedded with elements of our military, the Ukrainian Fifth Column were actively engaged in criminal activities, including sabotage of key American infrastructure targets.

The periodical of the OUN was titled “Svoboda,” now the name of one of the key OUN/B successor organizations in power in Ukraine.

Program Highlights Include: the Pelypenko affair, in which a Ukrainian Orthodox priest and Gestapo agent disclosed the dimensions and workings of the Nazi/Ukrainian Fifth Column in the U.S.; Svoboda party member Andriy Parubiy’s elevation to being speaker of the Ukrainian parliament; review of Viktor Yuschenko’s strong ties to the Ukrainian-American branches of the OUN/B; discussion of the bogus law degree of incoming Prime Minister Volodomyr Groysman, obtained from MAUP University, the epicenter of anti-Semitism in Ukraine; review of David Duke’s role as a faculty member at MAUP; the assignment of a contingent of the Nazi Azov battalion to “maintain order” in Odessa, the site of a massacre-by-fire of ethnic Russian protesters in 2014.


Why Were the Immigration Files on Tamerlan Tsarnaev So Heavily Redacted?

In FTR #773, among other programs and posts, we noted that the Boston Marathon bombing appears to have been blowback from ongoing covert “ops” using Islamist proxy warriors in the Earth Island. The heavy censorship of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s immigration files reinforces the suspicion that there is information about the bombers that is too sensitive to be released.

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 #885 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 2: “The Conga-Line ‘Ops’ “

For most of this decade, Mr. Emory has analyzed an overlapping series of “ops” that have determined much of contemporary political reality. At the epicenter of this dynamic is the Earth Island. “The Earth Island Boogie” embraces an overlapping series of “ops” including: the so-called “Orange Revolution” of Ukraine, WikiLeaks, the so-called “Arab Spring,” “L’Affaire Snowden” and the Maidan coup of 2014. ISIS is a direct outgrowth of the so-called “Arab Spring.” This broadcast presents a detailed overview of “the conga-line ‘ops,'” featuring links to key text excerpts providing longer analysis of these dynamics.


FTR #884 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie”?, Part 1 (Turkish Taffy, Part 4)

Clarifying and further developing analysis of geopolitical discussion from both previous and future broadcasts, this program details the developing Islamic fascism of Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan. Both a NATO country and Muslim Brotherhood-derived Islamist in nature, Turkey is also manifesting aggressive militarism. Silencing opposition press and legal investigators who have discovered his support for Islamic terrorists, Erdogan is proposing sweeping constitutional changes and invoking Hitler’s Germany as political precedent. Erdogan’s AK Party evolved from the Muslim Brotherhood and the Bank al-Taqwa milieu. Program Highlights Include: Erdogan’s AK Party’s links with Germany and the EU; Turkey’s dispatch of troops into Iraq, against the wishes of the Iraqi government; Hitler’s political last will and testament, envisioning Islamists as proxy warriors to fulfill his political agenda; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of Muslim Brotherhood-derived Islamists as proxy warriors against Russia in the Caucasus and China in Central Asia.


FTR #880 The ISIS File: The Myth of the Moderates

Continuing our analysis of an overlapping series of massive covert operations in the Earth Island utilizing Muslim Brotherhood-based Sunni jihadists and intersecting Pan-Turkist elements, we analyze the genesis of ISIS. Stemming from a covert operation in which elements of CIA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood are operating in Southern Turkey to enable jihadists in Syria, ISIS appears to be something of a Frankenstein’s monster. Envisioned as a Salafist principality in Eastern Syria to destabilize the Assad regime, the Islamic State used AQI (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) infrastructure to spread into Iraq, threatening the “gains” of the misguided U.S. invasion of that country. Now, this Islamist Frankenstein’s monster is attacking the West, driving the political spectrum in Europe and the United States rightward. That reaction, in turn, is fueling Muslim alienation to the delight and benefit of ISIS. Program Highlights Include: ISIS chief Al-Baghradi’s “former” membership in the Muslim Brotherhood; the decisive role of Chechen fighters in ISIS; the alliance of UNA-UNSO fighters (Pravy Sektor) in Chechnya and Georgia; ISIS’s use of Bitcoin to stash their financial assets; ISIS’s use of an encrypted Berlin-based messaging service for its communiques; an oblique endorsement of ISIS by the chief of Turkish intelligence; review of the re-direction of the anti-Soviet jihadist effort in Afghanistan to anti-Russian combat in Chechnya; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of using jihadists against Russia in the Caucasus and China in central Asia.


FTR #879 Further Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

As the title indicates, this broadcast continues analysis of the growing confluence of Muslim-Brotherhood dominated Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements, this against the background of the mounting hostilities overtaking the region. After repeating a quote from Zbigniew Brzezinski read by Elizabeth Gould in FTR #872 proposing to use Islamists to destabilize post-Cold War Russia and China, we highlight an article detailing Turkish military support for Turkmen militia and overlapping Nusra Front (al-Qaeda) and ISIS combatants in Syria. Turkey’s recent shootdown of a Russian combat jet appears to have resulted from Turkish air cover for the so-called “moderates” in Syria. Much of the first half of the program consists of analysis of an article examining how U.S. military interventions of recent decades have helped install Islamist regimes in place of secular ones–this in areas that had once been part of the Ottoman Empire. As noted by the author, Germany is a quiet, principal benefactor of the U.S. action. In our series about the so-called “Arab Spring.” (we call it “The Muslim Brotherhood Spring”), we noted that Erdogan’s Turkey was not a “moderate” Islamic democracy at all, but a Muslim Brotherhood autocracy evolved from the al-Taqwa milieu. Even many Turkish citizens are now openly charging Erdogan with being a fascist. As we see Grey Wolf elements working in Syria, Asia and (in all probability) in Ukraine, we should not forget that Turkey is also a NATO country. The program concludes with a re-broadcast of FTR #59, highlighting the Grey Wolves’ role as the Turkish “Stay Behind” forces. Operation Stay Behind was a NATO program to use fascist formations as reserve guerilla forces, to be used either in the event of World War III or against a democratically-elected leftist government in Europe. Not surprisingly, the Stay Behind forces often precipitated terror attacks and assassinations in their host countries.


FTR #878 Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

In recent years, we have noted growing confluence between Muslim Brotherhood-based Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements. In addition to their utility as proxy warriors against the former Soviet Union, the former Yugoslavia, Russia and contemporary China, the Muslim Brotherhood is viewed with favor in the West because of its corporatist economics. As events in Ukraine, the Middle East and Asia continue to heat up, the Islamist/Pan-Turkist connection appears to be solidifying. The “cement” that is bringing them together appears to be elements of Western intelligence, the Underground Reich/transnational corporate faction of the CIA in particular. We are now seeing Islamist/Pan-Turkist combatants active all around the Earth Island: Grey Wolf-linked combatants working with elements of CIA in Syria, backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and having executed a Russian pilot who bailed out of his jet shot down by a Turkish F-16; Chechen/ISIS-linked fighters in Ukraine fighting under Pravy Sektor command; Crimean Tatars backed by Turkey and collaborating with Pravy Sektor sabotaging the Crimean power grid, water supply and road traffic and Grey Wolves working with the al-Qaeda-linked Uighurs in China (apparently authoring a terrorist bombing in Thailand directed against Chinese tourists). With Pan-Turkist Islamists fighting against Russia in Ukraine and against China in fossil-fuel-rich Xinjiang Province and Thailand, it is difficult not to see the hand of the Underground Reich faction of CIA at work. Much of the program consists of a re-broadcast of part of AFA #14 talking about the former World Anti-Communist League and the powerful Pan-Turkist element within the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. Program Highlights Include: Pan-Turkist collaboration with the Third Reich and the pre-war Promethean League; National Action Party founder Alparsan Turkes’ agitation on behalf of Turkish entry into World War II on the side of the Axis; Turkes’ role as a key Turkish representative to NATO; the Turkish government of Tayyip Erdogan’s overt support for the Crimean Tatars as well as the Turkmen militia in Syria; Pan-Turkist SS veteran Ruzy Nazar’s work for elements of CIA and his presence at the WACL conference in Dallas in 1984 as a representative of the ABN.


FTR #877 Update on the Ukrainian Crisis

Before we turn to continuing analysis of “The Earth Island Boogie” in succeeding programs, we set the stage by updating events in Ukraine. To the surprise of no one, the OUN/B heirs in power in Ukraine have not indicted anyone in the burning alive of 42 pro-Russian demonstrators in Odessa in May of 2014. The Ukrainian “counter-terrorist” forces are inextricably linked with the OUN/B heirs in government and the perpetrators of the act. Failure of governance is taking its toll on the Ukrainian populace, expressed by support for OUN/B-style fascists such as Svoboda in Western Ukraine, support for the political forces grouped around the corrupt former president Victor Yanukovych in the eastern and southern parts of the country and the election to the Odessa city council of a politician who assumed the name of a Star Wars villain. In response to growing criticism of the Ukrainian situation, the EU is implementing an information warfare program directed not only at EU members in Eastern Europe but in Russia as well. A primary theoretical influence on the information warfare the EU is conducting appears to be former Wehrmacht general Wolf Stefan Traugott Graf von Baudissin, who served on Rommel’s staff during World War II. Program Highlights Include: the effect of anti-Russian sentiment expressed by the Maidan coupsters on the population of the Eastern part of the country; the effect of the war waged by the Ukrainian government on public sentiment in the east; the overwhelming probability that hard intelligence on the shootdown of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 does not support the “Putin/Separatists did it” line; discussion of the long-standing sentiment on the part of Crimeans for re-unification with Russia; von Baudissin’s role in the re-institution of Nazi forces in the postwar German military.
