FTR #868: The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 1

The first of two pro­grams high­light­ing the unsolved 1986 assas­si­na­tion of Swedish Prime Min­is­ter Olof Palme, the broad­cast fea­tures a 1988 arti­cle by the bril­liant free­lance Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger, author of “The Great Hero­in Coup: Drugs, Intel­li­gence and Inter­na­tion­al Fas­cism.” Through this exam­i­na­tion of the inter­sect­ed net­works that Kruger has termed (in “The Great Hero­in Coup”) “The Inter­na­tion­al Fascista,” we are able to observe the ele­ments of Oper­a­tion Con­dor, key indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions com­pris­ing the for­mer World Anti-Com­mu­nist League, indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions under­ly­ing “the Strat­e­gy of Ten­sion” in Italy, as well as the cast of char­ac­ters that man­aged the Iran-Con­tra machi­na­tions. Long the focal point of death threats and assas­si­na­tion attempts, Palme had earned the lethal ire of fas­cists in North and South Amer­i­ca, as well as Europe. The fail­ure to solve the killing, despite the pas­sage of almost 30 years and some very strong evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries, under­scores the grav­i­tas of the forces that destroyed Palme. Kruger’s arti­cle also serves as some­thing of an “in vit­ro” win­dow into many of the polit­i­cal net­works we have exam­ined over the years.


Azov Battalion Training Kids as Young as Six: Ukrainian Hitler Youth?

The most vis­i­ble and best-pub­li­cized of the Nazi fight­ing for­ma­tions in Ukraine is the Azov bat­tal­ion. We now learn that Azov is train­ing a “youth cadre”–including chil­dren as young as six. We don’t think it is much of a reach to see their “young ‘uns” as what might be accu­rate­ly viewed as a Ukrain­ian Hitler Youth.

FTR #858 The NED File

Extend­ing exam­i­na­tion of the most inap­pro­pri­ate­ly named Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy, the pro­gram high­lights that insti­tu­tion’s role as a direct exten­sion of U.S. intel­li­gence. In addi­tion to hav­ing financed the Maid­an coup in Ukraine, the NED has been posi­tion­ing itself to effect “regime change” in Rus­sia. One of the part­ners with NED in financ­ing the Maid­an coup is Pierre Omid­yar, Glenn Green­wald’s finan­cial angel and the head of EBay. Omid­yar is now part­ner­ing with NED to cre­ate a “fact-check­ing ser­vice.” Vladimir Putin has cracked down on NED and oth­er for­eign NGO’s that are polit­i­cal­ly active in Rus­sia, using the prece­dent of an Amer­i­can law that oblig­es polit­i­cal activists and orga­ni­za­tions financed from abroad to reg­is­ter as agents of for­eign gov­ern­ments. Review­ing infor­ma­tion from FTR #848, the pro­gram high­lights NED’s active pro­jec­tion of World War II-era fas­cists and Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors into Lithua­nia, where the paved the way for the desta­bi­liza­tion of the U.S.S.R., as well as the polit­i­cal reha­bil­i­ta­tion of Baltic Waf­fen SS units. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the found­ing of the NED in con­junc­tion with William Casey under Ronald Rea­gan; Omid­yar’s spon­sor­ship of Svit­lana Zalis­chuk, a Ukrain­ian MP who is coor­di­nat­ing the inte­gra­tion of Ukraine into NATO; the Wash­ing­ton Post’s ide­o­log­i­cal swing to the far right.


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.


The Assassination of Olof Palme

In our ongo­ing series of inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da, the author of “The Hitler Lega­cy,” we have high­light­ed points of dis­cus­sion relat­ing to WACL, Oper­a­tion Con­dor, the Iran/Contra scan­dal and oth­er ele­ments that might not be famil­iar to recent/younger read­ers and lis­ten­ers. Peter detailed his hair-rais­ing vis­it to Colo­nia Dig­nidad in FTR #839. While going through some box­es in stor­age, we came across an old essay by the bril­liant Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger, author of “The Great Hero­in Coup,” ana­lyz­ing the unsolved 1986 assas­si­na­tion of Swedish prime min­is­ter Olof Palme. We present that arti­cle here, in order to famil­iar­ize younger read­ers and lis­ten­ers with indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions we haven’t cov­ered in decades.

Lithuanian Fascism, Yesterday and Today

Hav­ing become the sec­ond fas­cist coun­try in Europe (in 1925), Lithua­nia is among the EU and NATO coun­tries cel­e­brat­ing its Waf­fen SS units that served the Third Reich. Lithuan­ian fas­cists were nur­tured by West­ern intel­li­gence and were pro­ject­ed into that for­mer Sovi­et repub­lic as part of the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Sovi­et Union. Now, Lithua­nia has resuci­tat­ed the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union, a para­mil­i­tary unit that col­lab­o­rat­ed with the Third Reich. Along with the Ukrain­ian OUN/B and UPA–the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union con­tin­ued the com­bat of World War II as gueril­la forces sup­port­ed by the OPC (an ele­ment of U.S. intel­li­gence.)

FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of sev­er­al inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da about his impor­tant new book “The Hitler Lega­cy,” this pro­gram high­lights the evo­lu­tion of ele­ments which fig­ure into the devel­op­ment of the post-war Nazi under­ground. At the end of the First World War, the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion in Rus­sia and abortive Marx­ist upris­ings in Ger­many and else­where in Europe infused the pow­er elite in the U.S. with a para­noid ide­o­log­i­cal ter­ror of a glob­al “Jew­ish-Marx­ist” con­spir­a­cy. Com­bined with fear of Catholic and Jew­ish immi­grants and their effect on Amer­i­can soci­ety, this ide­o­log­i­cal para­noia fused with a social Dar­win­ism that found its expres­sion in eugenics–a pseu­do-intel­lec­tu­al doc­trine that sought the pro­mo­tion of “desir­able” social and eth­nic types and the sup­pres­sion and/or elim­i­na­tion of “infe­ri­or” racial types. See­ing Ger­many as the point ele­ment in the strug­gle against world Marx­ism, indi­vid­u­als and polit­i­cal par­ties sought to ally with Ger­man fas­cists to bring fas­cism to the U.S. This fas­cist Fifth Col­umn includ­ed polit­i­cal groups rang­ing from the Ku Klux Klan to the Sil­ver Shirts of William Dud­ley Pel­ley, as well as the pro­to­typ­i­cal right-wing talk show host Father Charles Cough­lin, “the Radio Priest.” Cough­lin’s efforts were sub­si­dized by Third Reich intel­li­gence. Financed by financiers and indus­tri­al­ists who sup­port­ed fas­cism, this Fifth Col­umn attempt­ed to kill and/or over­throw FDR on sev­er­al occa­sions. In the Mid­dle East, the con­cept of glob­al jihad was devel­oped by Ger­man archael­o­gist Max von Oppen­heim dur­ing the First World War. Envi­sion­ing the world’s Mus­lims as proxy war­riors against the Entente Pow­ers of Britain, France and Rus­sia, von Oppen­heim cre­at­ed the tem­plate for con­tem­po­rary Islam­ic fas­cism and jihadism. Fol­low­ing the divi­sion of the for­mer Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began man­i­fest­ing belief in an inter­na­tion­al glob­al con­spir­a­cy involv­ing Jews and the Euro­pean colo­nial pow­ers that res­onat­ed with the Amer­i­can pow­er elite’s ido­l­og­i­cal anx­i­eties.


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 #826 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian Style, Part 2

In FTR #824, we not­ed the deci­sive role played by the Ukrain­ian dias­po­ra in the events unfold­ing in East­ern Europe. Petro Poroshenko is imple­ment­ing a legal gam­bit to per­mit for­eign nation­als to assume cab­i­net posi­tions in his new gov­ern­ment. In par­tic­u­lar, Poroshenko expressed the desire to incor­po­rate cit­i­zens of the U.S., Geor­gia and Lithua­nia in Ukraine’s gov­ern­ment. In short order, Ukrainian/American State Depart­ment Offi­cer Natal­ie Jaresko, Lithuan­ian-born U.S. cit­i­zen Air­vas Abramovi­cius and Geor­gian Alek­san­dre Kvi­tashvili assumed the posts of finance min­is­ter, eco­nom­ic and devel­op­ment and trade min­is­ter and health min­is­ter respec­tive­ly. All three were edu­cat­ed in the Unit­ed States. Jaresko is a for­mer State Depart­ment offi­cer with close links to the US Agency for Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment. The appoint­ments come as Ukraine is close to default­ing on a $17bn IMF loan and mem­bers of Ukraine’s fas­cist vol­un­teer bat­tal­ions are lob­by­ing Con­gress for mil­i­tary aid. Poroshenko is also grant­i­ng cit­i­zen­ship to for­eign-born neo-Nazis, as well as insti­tut­ing an infor­ma­tion min­istry that crit­ics have com­pared to The Min­istry of Truth from George Orwell’s 1984.


FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Lev­en­da has post­ed an arti­cle (excerpt­ed from his recent book) that encap­su­lates sig­nif­i­cant ele­ments of dis­cus­sion pre­sent­ed by Mr. Emory and fea­tured on this web­site. Not­ing Impe­r­i­al Ger­many’s use of Islam­ic proxy war­riors dur­ing the First World War and Nazi Ger­many’s incor­po­ra­tion of the same strat­a­gem, Lev­en­da notes that Nazi ele­ments have con­tin­ued to use Mus­lim proxy war­fare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Under­ground Reich. Hav­ing incor­po­rat­ed many impor­tant ele­ments of Nazi Ger­many’s nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment into its own after World War II, the Unit­ed States has co-opt­ed the tac­tic of proxy war. To its detri­ment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Under­ground Reich and its Islamist prox­ies have their own agen­das. Those agen­das fea­ture the defeat of the Unit­ed States as a cen­ter­piece of long-term strat­e­gy. Con­clud­ing with an exam­i­na­tion of recent Amer­i­can mil­i­tary involve­ment, the pro­gram notes that much of what we are doing actu­al­ly ben­fits Ger­many and occurs in areas for­mer­ly belong­ing to the Ottoman Empire.
