O.S.S. Document: U.S. Intelligence Planned on Using Stephan Bandera Against U.S.S.R. in 1946

In FTR #777, we highlighted the adoption of Stephan Bandera’s OUN/B by elements of U.S. intelligence to use as combatants against the Soviet Union. Having staffed SS and Gestapo ranks and participated in war crimes against Poles, Jews, Russians and other “racial undesirables,” this Third Reich ally conducted guerilla warfare against the Soviets until the early 1950’s. A declassified document from the Office of Strategic Services–America’s World War II intelligence agency and the forerunner of the CIA–discloses that Bandera and his organization were targeted for recruitment in the immediate aftermath of World War II.

Academic Study Says KKK Played a Major Role in Swinging the South for GOP

A recent academic study indicates that the Ku Klux Klan played a prominent role in converting the South from Democratic to Republican control. Utilizing the “Southern Strategy” to capture a “solid South” while making uneven gains in other states, the GOP has used the Democratic Party’s support for African-American civil rights to put the former Confederacy solidly in the “W” column for the Republicans. This should be weighed against background of the Crusade For Freedom, an illegal domestic covert operation that imported large numbers of Third Reich collaborators, including entire SS intelligence units, into the U.S. All of the contents of this website as of 10/2/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of videotaped lectures are available on a 32GB flash drive.

FTR #821 Continuity of Government, the JFK Assassination and Covert Operations

Analyzing the role of networks originally set up to perpetuate and sustain government in the event of nuclear war, this program highlights the role of Continuity of Government (COG) elements in a number of domestic and/or illegal covert operations. With its own communications network, the COG has proved an effective vehicle for sidestepping normal operational channels in order to realize nefarious aims. The COG-related networks and individuals have figured prominently in aspects of the JFK assassination, Watergate, the October Surprise, the Iran-Contra scandal and events pursuant to the 9/11 attacks. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld are two of the prominent figures in the COG networks and have been present in the Nixon/Ford, Reagan/Bush, Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.


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.


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.


FTR #778 The OUN/B File, Part 2

This program details more of the background of the OUN/B, a Ukrainian fascist organization whose political heirs are front and center in the Ukrainian crisis. After setting forth the role of Senator Thomas Dodd in the dissemination of the disinformation concerning links between the supposed KGB assassin Oswald and the alleged Soviet murder of OUN/B leader Bandera, the program highlights the evolution of the OUN/B during the Cold War. After becoming a major element of the GOP’s ethnic outreach organization, the OUN/B played a significant role in the Free Congress Foundation and, through that relationship, the destabilization of the Soviet Union. After the breakup of the USSR, Ykaterina Chumachenko–a key player in the OUN/B’s top U.S. front group and also Ronald Reagan’s Deputy Director of Public Liaison–married Viktor Yuschenko, the beneficiary of the “Orange Revolution.”


Reagan’s Nazis

After the death of Margaret Thatcher, Americans are being treated to hagiographies of her political ally Ronald Reagan. Reagan’s administration was a front for the Underground Reich, incorporating the GOP Nazi “ethnics” who had been imported into the US following World War II. Reagan, himself, had a long history of association with unsavory elements, including organized crime.
