As one member of the European Parliament observed, wryly, “Is it April 1st?” The EU (read “Germany”) has passed a ban on open containers of olive oil that are a common fixture of quality restaurants in Europe. This will almost certainly hurt small producers in Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece–four of the afflicted economies of the eurozone.
For many years, we’ve covered the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic fascist organization allied with the Axis in World War II and Western intelligence services during the Cold War. Now, the Brotherhood is infiltrating the U.S. Naval Academy. Professors there are linked to the entities targeted by Operation Green Quest.
Long predicted in these quarters, the destabilization of the Obama administration is in full swing. With the GOP charging that the Obama administration was covering-up warnings about terrorism in Libya, it now emerges that it was now-acting CIA director Michael J. Morell who deleted the references, in opposition to the now-deposed David Petraeus.
Like Count Dracula, Gerald Posner keeps coming back. Having led the media charges to discredit Warren Commission critics, critics of the official version of Martin Luther King’s assassination and Ladislas Farago’s research on Martin Bormann’s presence in Latin America, Posner is now defending Afghan president Karzai’s brother against credible charges that he has been on the CIA’s payroll, while participatring significantly in the Afghan heroin trade.
We’ve noted the links between organized crime and the NFL in the past, highlighting the milieu of the San Francisco 49ers. It develops that much of the 49ers recent success was (allegedly) due to their use of sports software diagnostics developed by German software maker SAP and employed by the team’s chief operating officer Paraag Marathe. One can but wonder if the consummately corrupt world of the NFL will be used to enhance revenues for SAP (and who knows who, or what, else?)
Two investigations may well dovetail. We’ve covered the 9/11 attacks for years, beginning with analysis well before the events themselves. We note, also, our recent posts about the intelligence-linked National Socialist Union neo-Nazi group in Germany. Germany Watch has presented a working hypothesis that NSU’s murders were covering-up operational elements in the attacks.
Recently, Aryan prison syndicates have been in the news. It appears that their number, sophistication, autonomy and lethal capabilities are far greater than most suspect. With the “lock-em-up and throw away the key” mentality twinning with the burgeoning for-profit prison enterprises, we may well see a storm breaking loose on the United States, as austerity pressures result in more of them being released without any significant rehabilitation.
For months, we’ve highlighted the burgeoning scandal surrounding the “investigation” (read “cover-up”) of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Union. The venerable Der Spiegel informs us that a “raffle” awarding press seating to the upcoming trial of one of its members has managed to exclude many of the Federal Republic’s credible and best known publications.
TIMELINE–November, 2012: Germany’s foreign minister encourages the U.S. to embrace both a “Trans-Atlantic” free trade pact and German-dictated “austerity.” January, 2013: Following Obama’s pivot to Asia, German lawyers and economists decamp to North Korea, in the wake of a heralded “economic and political opening to South Korea and the West.” Early spring, 2013: the Hitler-influenced Asian nation’s leader does just the opposite.
For years, we’ve been covering the pivotal issue of World War II flight capital, now on the front burner. Germany’s STERN discusses it. So does Tagesspiegel. 8 of 10 Greeks favor Germany paying their WWII debt. So do that country’s political parties. Saying that the debt has been paid, Germany continues to dissemble about the issue.
