FTR#1304 Albert Hofmann, The Nazis and The CIA

Trans­formed into some­thing of an icon dur­ing the “Psy­che­del­ic Era” of the 1960’s, San­doz’s Albert Hoff­man’s polit­i­cal affil­i­a­tions are fun­da­men­tal­ly dif­fer­ent from his “Peace and Love” per­sona mint­ed dur­ing that time.

The real­i­ty of that time is fun­da­men­tal­ly dif­fer­ent from the sur­viv­ing cul­tur­al and polit­i­cal nar­ra­tive.

This pro­gram sets forth dis­turb­ing facts about Hoff­man, his rela­tion­ship with the CIA and the San­doz fir­m’s activ­i­ties in World War II.

“. . . . In the same inter­view [Gor­don] Was­son said that Albert Hof­mann ‘worked in some way with the CIA’ and that Hoffman’s ‘dis­cov­er­ies were impart­ed in whole by San­doz to the U.S. gov­ern­ment. San­doz want­ed to be on the right side of things.’ Hofmann’s con­nec­tion to the CIA has nev­er been offi­cial­ly con­firmed by the CIA, which main­tains a pol­i­cy of not com­ment­ing on or reveal­ing infor­ma­tion on for­eign cit­i­zens who find their way into its employ­ment. For­mer agency offi­cials have com­ment­ed anony­mous­ly that sev­er­al San­doz sci­en­tists and offi­cials, includ­ing Hof­mann, main­tained a close rela­tion­ship with the CIA, but the ‘Agency nev­er ful­ly trust­ed the Swiss’ and ‘always held a dual insur­ance pol­i­cy with San­doz’ by vet­ting and plac­ing covert employ­ees with­in the firm’s lab­o­ra­to­ries and admin­is­tra­tion. . . .”

Ele­ments of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: The World War II indict­ment of San­doz for col­lab­o­rat­ing with Nazi Ger­many; Hof­man­n’s work for the CIA; the pres­ence of U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare per­son­nel in France at the time of the dis­as­trous Pont St.-Esprit ergot/LSD out­break; Hof­man­n’s pres­ence in Pont St.-Esprit in the imme­di­ate after­math of the out­break; Hof­man­n’s mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the cause of the out­break, attribut­ing it to the use of a mer­cury com­pound used to pre­serve seeds: ” . . . . ‘The mass poi­son­ing in the south­ern France city of Pont-St. Esprit in the year 1951, which many have attrib­uted to ergot-con­tain­ing bread, actu­al­ly had noth­ing to do with ergo­tism. It rather involved poi­son­ing by an organ­ic mer­cury com­pound that was uti­lized for dis­in­fect­ing seeds]’ . . . .”; Hof­man­n’s dis­cus­sion with doc­tors inves­ti­gat­ing the out­break in the imme­di­ate after­math of the event–a dis­cus­sion in which the mer­cury poi­son­ing the­o­ry was dis­missed: ” . . . .The doc­tors at the meet­ing agreed that mer­cury poi­son­ing was not evi­dent in any man­ner, spe­cial­ly because of the per­sis­tent lack of kid­ney or liv­er dam­age. . . .”; an account of the Pont St.-Esprit out­break.


FTR#1303 How Many Lies Before You Belong to the Lies?, Part 25

Updat­ing the Ukraine war, this pro­gram high­lights a num­ber of con­sid­er­a­tions: The phe­nom­e­non of “Astro­turf­ing” to gen­er­ate increased sup­port for the war; the cast­ing of a Belarus vet­er­an of the Nazi Azov for­ma­tions as a polit­i­cal mar­tyr; the west­ern regime-change insti­tu­tions’ sup­port for such per­sons; the New York Times’ shift­ing cov­er­age about Nazis in Ukraine; Russ­ian warn­ing at the U.N. in Octo­ber of 2022 about Ukraine’s plans to blow up the Nova Khakov­ka dam; Wash­ing­ton Post’s Decem­ber, 2022, arti­cle about Ukraine’s tri­al assaults on the dam; exam­i­na­tion of the dis­tinct pos­si­bil­i­ty that a British Storm Shad­ow mis­sile was used to blow up the dam.


FTR#1302 How Many Lies Before You Belong to the Lies, Part 24

The pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of Bohdan Dasza­k’s work on behalf of the Ger­mans in a World War II con­cen­tra­tion camp. After high­light­ing dis­in­for­ma­tion in a sum­ma­tion of Bohan Dasza­k’s ser­vice, we note that the Daszak fam­i­ly was from the Lvov, in Ukraine. That is the area in which the noto­ri­ous Janows­ka con­cen­tra­tion camp was locat­ed. Alle­ga­tions that “Dad­dy Daszak” worked at Janows­ka may very well be true.

After high­light­ing the Plast orga­ni­za­tion, a glob­al Ukrain­ian equiv­a­lent of the Hitler Youth and spec­u­lat­ing about the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the senior Daszak may have grown up with ser­vice in Plast, we note the sig­nif­i­cant roles of both Fin­land and Swe­den in col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Nazis, a his­to­ry which adds omi­nous depth to the recent admis­sion of both nations to NATO.

Next, the broad­cast details the renam­ing of a street in Kiev for Ulas Sam­chuk, a noto­ri­ous anti-Semi­te and Nazi/OUN‑B col­lab­o­ra­tor. His work is required read­ing in Ukrain­ian schools!

The pro­gram con­cludes with a look at the New York Times’ white­wash­ing of the Nazi man­i­fes­ta­tion in Ukraine. 


FTR#1301 Who Killed Terry Yeakey?

This pro­gram inves­ti­gates the sus­pi­cious death of Ter­ry Yeakey, an Okla­homa City police­man who was one of the first respon­ders in the Okla­homa City bomb­ing of 1995. Crit­i­cal of the offi­cial ver­sion of the sto­ry, he was found shot in the head–an alleged sui­cide. His death may very well have been a mur­der.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis: Ter­ry Yeakey’s belief that the offi­cial ver­sion of the bomb­ing was a cov­er-up; His own inves­tiga­tive efforts; Appar­ent efforts to thwart his inves­ti­ga­tion; The dis­ap­pear­ance of key reports crit­i­cal of the offi­cial ver­sion of the bomb­ing; Numer­ous wit­ness accounts of a sec­ond per­son in the Ryder truck car­ry­ing the bomb; Appar­ent sur­veil­lance  of indi­vid­u­als crit­i­cal of the offi­cial ver­sion and and break-ins at their res­i­dences; Indi­ca­tions that Ter­ry Yeakey may have been tor­tured and hung; Thwart­ing of the efforts of oth­er first respon­ders whose accounts dif­fered with the offi­cial ver­sion; Recap of the alle­ga­tions against Andreas Strass­meier by ATF infor­mant Car­ol Howe; Links between the OK City bomb­ing and oth­er ter­ror­ist inci­dents.


FTR#1300 The Collapse of Credit Suisse and the Shadows of Safehaven

Inter­na­tion­al finan­cial tur­moil sur­round­ing the col­lapse of sev­er­al major Amer­i­can banks and the absorp­tion of Cred­it Suisse by UBS has eclipsed a very impor­tant sto­ry about Cred­it Suis­se’s role in han­dling monies used by the post-World War II Nazi dias­po­ra.

After high­light­ing some of the Nazi accounts used at Cred­it Suisse and the fir­ing of U.S. inves­ti­ga­tor Neil Barof­sky by the bank, we dis­cuss Cred­it Suis­se’s role in the flight cap­i­tal pro­gram of the Third Reich and the unsuc­cess­ful attempts by U.S. offi­cials involved with Oper­a­tion Safe­haven to inter­dict the flight cap­i­tal.

Cred­it Suisse fig­ures promi­nent­ly in this account.

The pro­gram con­cludes with dis­cus­sion of the inter­dic­tion of Oper­a­tion Safe­haven, in part because of the indis­cre­tion of U.S. Vice Pres­i­dent Hen­ry Wal­lace.

Note that, had Safe­haven been suc­cess­ful, Ger­man indus­tri­al­ists and financiers in the defen­dants’ dock at Nurem­berg would have been asked to name their Amer­i­can co-con­spir­a­tors.

This would have placed some of the most promi­nent names in Amer­i­can indus­try and finance in the defen­dants’ dock, along with their Ger­man asso­ciates.


FTR#‘s 1297 and1298: The End and The Beginning, Parts Four and Five

These pro­grams con­clude a five-part series set­ting forth why Mr. Emory feels we are head­ed for “Ye Ol’ Last Roundup” and offer­ing some insights into what he feels is the meta­phys­i­cal nature of real­i­ty and why that offers some hope. His out­look is heav­i­ly influ­enced by Bud­dhism.

Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence plays a large role in the analy­sis Mr. Emory presents, includ­ing a ter­ri­fy­ing devel­op­ment which will per­mit AI’s to read the human mind from afar!

The first pro­gram reviews the Third Reich and apartheid roots of the Schwab fam­i­ly and the Nazi intel­li­gence con­nec­tions of Hen­ry Kissinger’s work at Har­vard.

After not­ing that the Viet­nam-era defo­liant Agent Orange was part of an over­lap­ping series of DARPA projects whose strate­gic ratio­nale was “counter-insur­gency,” Mr. Emory notes the Nazi/Paperclip ori­gins of Agent Orange, as well as the prob­a­ble role of DARPA in the devel­op­ment of SARS CoV‑2.

After review of Biden’s new “can­cer moon­shot” and the strong prob­a­bil­i­ty that is will serve as a front for the use of syn­thet­ic biol­o­gy for the devel­op­ment of  bio­log­i­cal weapons, Mr. Emory reviews the ear­ly man­i­fes­ta­tion of glob­al­iza­tion that result­ed in the rise of glob­al fas­cism.

A paper writ­ten by a mem­ber of the New York Fed­er­al Reserve opines that the 1918 flu epi­dem­ic set the stage for the rise of Nazism in Ger­many. Was some­thing like that intend­ed with Covid-19?

Sub­sum­ing the theme of these pro­grams, Mr. Emory recounts the words of Chief Sit­ting Bull at the Pow­er Riv­er Coun­cil. Those words encap­su­late his view of what this soci­ety has become.

After review­ing a fas­ci­nat­ing sci­en­tif­ic dis­cus­sion about the “tone” that may very well have start­ed the Big Bang ori­gin of the uni­verse, Mr. Emory high­lights a book that has influ­enced him greatly–“The Physics of Immor­tal­i­ty.” It may, per­haps, be com­fort­ing to some to believe that it is prob­a­ble that, in the end, right­eous­ness will pre­vail.


FTR#1299 Interview with Lucy Komisar About “Navalny”

A wel­come return to our air­waves of Lucy Komis­ar fea­tures her char­ac­ter­is­ti­cal­ly inci­sive analy­sis of an Oscar-win­ning doc­u­men­tary about Alex­ei Naval­ny, the West­’s “Baskin Rob­bins Fla­vor of the Month” in the Russ­ian polit­i­cal domain.

Sup­port­ed by char­ac­ter­is­ti­cal­ly selec­tive cov­er­age by West­ern jour­nal­is­tic and polit­i­cal ele­ments, Alex­ei Naval­ny has demon­strat­ed pro­to-fascis­tic ten­den­cies and is more of a pro­pa­gan­da phe­nom­e­non than a real polit­i­cal leader.

In this pro­gram, we present Lucy’s analy­sis of the Naval­ny doc­u­men­tary, includ­ing her thoughts con­cern­ing pos­si­ble intel­li­gence con­nec­tions to the doc­u­men­tary’s pro­duc­tion and a qua­si-McCarthyite response to her prob­ing ques­tions.


FTR#‘s 1294, 1295, 1296 The End and the Beginning, Parts One, Two and Three

Tak­ing stock of sev­er­al dynam­ics that threat­en to end our species and civ­i­liza­tion, this  begins series with analy­sis of the back­ground and phi­los­o­phy of Klaus Schwab, his father, his men­tor Hen­ry Kissinger and transna­tion­al cor­po­rate influ­ences on the deci­sive­ly impor­tant World Eco­nom­ic Forum.

Key Points of Analy­sis and Dis­cus­sion Include: The Esch­er-Wyss firm of Switzer­land; Its employ­ment of Klaus Schwab and his father; The com­pa­ny’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Nazi Ger­man; The com­pa­ny’s role in pro­duc­ing tech­nol­o­gy for the Third Reich’s atom­ic bomb pro­gram; Klaus Schwab’s aca­d­e­m­ic men­tor­ing by Hen­ry Kissinger, Kissinger’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Nazi intel­li­gence milieu import­ed into the U.S. after WWII; The Esch­er-Wyss fir­m’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Apartheid South African nuclear pro­gram; The deci­sive influ­ence of the Club of Rome on the World Eco­nom­ic Forum; the WEF’s qua­si-eugen­ics poli­cies.

We then note that Peter Thiel’s father also worked on the Apartheid South African atom­ic bomb.

The series then chron­i­cles analy­sis by elite Pen­ta­gon-con­nect­ed sci­en­tists that CO2 could be used as a weapon of mass-destruc­tion.

Next, we high­light the [belat­ed] alarm that AI’s could pro­duce the enslave­ment and/or destruc­tion of soci­ety.

Over the decades, Mr. Emory’s analy­sis has focused on the enor­mous impor­tance of Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion. The series next high­lights some of the Nazi con­nec­tions to that promi­nent event.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and Analy­sis Include: The Joint Chiefs’ meet­ing with their Ger­man coun­ter­parts [all WWII vet­er­ans] in the Pen­ta­gon on the after­noon of 11/22/1963; The pri­ma­ry role of Gen­er­al Ger­hard Wes­sel in the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion, from WWII to his suc­ceed­ing of Rein­hard Gehlen as head of the BND; Lud­wig Erhard’s sched­uled state din­ner on 11/25/1963–the day of JFK’s funer­al; Lud­wig Erhard’s net­work­ing with the SS and plan­ning for the post WWII eco­nom­ic revival of the Third Reich; Nazi Gen­er­al Adolf Heusinger’s ascent to the top NATO mil­i­tary posi­tion, a role that gave him an office in the Pen­ta­gon.

We con­clude with brief dis­cus­sion of the use of Agent Orange in Viet­nam, a sub­ject to which we will return in our next pro­gram in the series.


FTR#‘s 1292 and 1293 The Oswald Institute of Virology, Part 14: The Northwoods Virus, Part 2 and Apocalypse, The Satanic Presidency of Joe Biden

This descrip­tion opens with an unchar­ac­ter­is­tic qual­i­fi­ca­tion and apol­o­gy: There are two ele­ments of the titles of each of these pro­grams that were not ade­quate­ly explained in the broad­casts them­selves, although they are implic­it in the sub­ject mate­r­i­al.

The term “North­woods Virus” is more com­plete­ly pre­sent­ed in FTR#1215. Among the appar­ent goals of the “Covid Oper­a­tion” that pro­duced SARS CoV‑2 is the turn­ing of Amer­i­can pub­lic opin­ion against Chi­na. Oper­a­tion North­woods was a plan hatched by the Join Chiefs of Staff in the ear­ly 1960’s to stage appar­ent ter­ror­ist inci­dents against Amer­i­can civil­ian and mil­i­tary per­son­nel and infra­struc­ture in order to manip­u­late pub­lic opin­ion in this coun­try and gen­er­ate sen­ti­ment for an inva­sion of Cuba.

The sec­ond pro­gram refers to the Biden Pres­i­den­cy as “Satan­ic,” because behind a stu­dious­ly con­struct­ed façade of iden­ti­ty pol­i­tics, “Team Biden” is pur­su­ing an overt­ly war­like, impe­ri­al­ist agen­da that was accu­rate­ly char­ac­ter­ized by writer Hen­ry Miller in his nov­el Trop­ic of Can­cer: “Amer­i­ca is the very incar­na­tion of doom, and she will lead the rest of the world into the Bot­tom­less Pit.”

Per­haps the most insid­i­ous of Biden’s pro­grams is his “Can­cer Moon­shot.”

Omi­nous­ly, it may well be the suc­ces­sor to Richard Nixon’s “War on Can­cer,” which did not defeat can­cer, but did serve as the appar­ent plat­form for the devel­op­ment of bio­log­i­cal war­fare weapons, AIDS in par­tic­u­lar.

Mod­eled after DARPA, head­ed by a DARPA alum­na whose CV inter­sects with that Agency’s appar­ent involve­ment with the devel­op­ment of Covid-19 and with an act­ing direc­tor who is also a for­mer employ­ee of that benight­ed orga­ni­za­tion, this new “health agency–ARPA‑H”, this agency will employ new, syn­thet­ic biol­o­gy tech­nol­o­gy.

Although that devel­op­ment is rep­re­sent­ed as human­i­tar­i­an, the struc­ture of the agency and the nation­al secu­ri­ty back­grounds of its lead­ing per­son­nel sug­gest strong­ly that this agency, too, will serve as a clan­des­tine plat­form for the next gen­er­a­tion of bio­log­i­cal weapon­ry.

We begin FTR#1292 with a reprise of the audio from a (now delet­ed) 55-sec­ond video of Dr. Jef­frey Sachs sum­ma­riz­ing his two-year stew­ard­ship of The Lancet’s com­mis­sion inves­ti­gat­ing the ori­gins of SARS CoV‑2.

Sachs stat­ed that he is “pret­ty con­vinced” it came from a U.S. bio­log­i­cal lab­o­ra­to­ry.

Next, we recap a study released by US Nation­al Acad­e­my of Sci­ences at the request of the Depart­ment of Defense about the threats of syn­thet­ic biol­o­gy con­clud­ed that the tech­niques to tweak and weaponize virus­es from known cat­a­logs of viral sequences is very fea­si­ble and rel­a­tive­ly easy to do.

One of the cen­tral points Mr. Emory has made about the gen­e­sis of the coro­n­avirus con­cerns the legal prin­ci­ple of “con­scious­ness of guilt.”

Going a long way toward prov­ing con­scious­ness of guilt are:

1.–The clas­si­fi­ca­tion of infor­ma­tion about the nature of the bio­log­i­cal agents involved with the CDC’s clo­sure of the Unit­ed States Army’s Med­ical Insti­tute of Infec­tious Dis­ease in ear­ly August of 2019, on the eve of the pan­dem­ic.
2.–The behav­ior of Peter Daszak and col­leagues in “gam­ing” the Lancet state­ment on the “nat­ur­al” ori­gin of the coro­n­avirus (Dasza­k’s Eco­Health Alliance–funded and advised by the nation­al secu­ri­ty establishment–is impli­cat­ed in the cre­ation of the SARS COV‑2.) Note that the Eco­Health Alliance was syn­the­siz­ing “nov­el coro­n­avirus­es” at this point in time, an impor­tant fac­tor to remem­ber when eval­u­at­ing the Metabiota/Munich Re busi­ness mod­el being pre­sent­ed in 2018. (See #4 pre­sent­ed below.)
3.–The reac­tion of gov­ern­ment offi­cials to Trump admin­is­tra­tion fig­ures into the ori­gins of the virus, advis­ing would be inves­ti­ga­tors that such inquiries would open a “can of worms,” or “a Pan­do­ra’s Box” because it would should light on U.S. fund­ing of the projects.
4.–Metabiota–partnered with Eco­Health Alliance–was net­worked with In-Q-Tel (the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty’s ven­ture cap­i­tal arm) and Munich Re to pro­vide pan­dem­ic insur­ance. Their 2018 busi­ness mod­el direct­ly fore­shad­owed the pan­dem­ic. “ . . . . Just two years ear­li­er, the com­pa­ny had run a large set of sce­nar­ios fore­cast­ing the con­se­quences of a nov­el coro­n­avirus spread­ing around the globe. . . . Mea­sures that decreased per­son-to-per­son con­tact, includ­ing social dis­tanc­ing, quar­an­tine, and school clo­sures, had the great­est cost per death pre­vent­ed, most like­ly because of the amount of eco­nom­ic dis­rup­tion caused by those mea­sures . . . .”  In 2018, as well, Eco­Health Alliance pro­posed a “nov­el coro­n­avirus” for syn­the­sis by DARPA. Although there is no evi­dence that DARPA syn­the­sized the virus, the U.S. did syn­the­size close­ly relat­ed virus­es. With the genome of that nov­el virus hav­ing been pub­lished, it may well have been syn­the­sized either by DARPA or some­one else, giv­en the con­tem­po­rary tech­nol­o­gy. Again, this, also was in 2018.
5.–Many aspects of the SARS COV‑2 virus, includ­ing its curi­ous FCS site and insti­tu­tion­al­ized obfus­ca­tion of aspects of the pan­dem­ic it caused sug­gest delib­er­ate cov­er-up. Why would the NIH redact 290 pages of a doc­u­ment request­ed by an FOIA suit!! Why were sequences of bat coro­n­avirus genomes removed from pub­lic view.

The pro­gram fea­tures a recap of some of the more impor­tant arti­cles in the long series on the coro­n­avirus, fol­lowed by dis­cus­sion of the Ener­gy Department’s con­clu­sion that the coro­n­avirus escaped from a Chi­nese lab­o­ra­to­ry.

Excel­lent analy­sis pre­sent­ed by the Moon of Alaba­ma blog notes that the Wall Street Jour­nal arti­cle break­ing the “news” about the Ener­gy Department’s con­clu­sion was co-authored by Michael R. Gor­don, who trum­pet­ed the “Lab Leak” meme in the spring of 2021.

In a pre­vi­ous jour­nal­is­tic incar­na­tion, Gor­don helped gen­er­ate enthu­si­asm for the inva­sion of Iraq by par­rot­ing the dis­in­for­ma­tion about Sad­dam Hus­sein hav­ing WMD’s.

Sur­pris­ing to Moon of Alaba­ma but not to us is Edward Snowden’s endorse­ment of the Lab Leak Hypoth­e­sis.

Far from being the “hero” Snow­den has made out to be, Snow­den is an extreme right-winger, whose work on cyber-secu­ri­ty appears to be the work of a con­scious dou­ble agent. (We have cov­ered Snowden’s escapades in numer­ous pro­grams over the years, par­tic­u­lar­ly FTR#’s 1078–1081.)

For the con­ve­nience of the lis­ten­er, we recap a 2001 arti­cle dis­cussing the all-encom­pass­ing scope of U.S. elec­tron­ic snooping—an arti­cle that reveals the depth of Snowden’s duplic­i­ty.

In addi­tion to touch­ing on a sto­ry of a recent­ly-released book about the Coro­n­avirus being syn­the­sized as part of a U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram, the pro­gram recaps the Biden administration’s cre­ation of a “Med­ical DARPA.”

Fol­low­ing dis­cus­sion of Moderna’s delib­er­ate with­hold­ing of data from reg­u­la­tors about its new biva­lent mRNA vac­cine, we note a study that indi­cates that new, dead­ly vari­ants of Covid that could over­whelm the health­care sys­tem are a dis­tinct pos­si­bil­i­ty.

Of great sig­nif­i­cance is analy­sis of a diplo­mat­ic break­through engi­neered by Chi­na. Bro­ker­ing a rap­proche­ment between Iran and Sau­di Ara­bia in the Mid­dle East, Chi­na has helped to re-set the polit­i­cal land­scape of the Mid­dle East.

As not­ed by M.K. Bhadraku­mar, the realign­ment may sig­nal a demise of the dol­lar as the glob­al reserve cur­ren­cy of choice. IF such a devel­op­ment ensues, it will prove dev­as­tat­ing to America’s impe­r­i­al sta­tus, cur­tail­ing the mil­i­tary indus­tri­al com­plex in par­tic­u­lar.

Mr. Emory express­es his great fear that this will not be allowed to develop—the above-men­tioned “Can­cer Moon­shot” and lethal, syn­the­sized micro-organ­isms and pan­demics will very like­ly be the Amer­i­can answer to the long-term eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal impli­ca­tions of the Chi­nese diplo­mat­ic coup.


FTR#1291 How Many Lies Before You Belong to The Lies?, Part 23

Updat­ing the Ukraine war, this broad­cast cen­ters large­ly on the whole­sale white­wash­ing of Ukrain­ian Nazi fight­ing for­ma­tions, the Azov units, in par­tic­u­lar.

In turn, this white­wash­ing is the his­tor­i­cal cul­mi­na­tion of a long process.

As Mr. Emory has not­ed in many pro­grams and posts, the Rus­sia-Ukraine war has com­plet­ed the process of the Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Amer­i­ca that he has chron­i­cled for the bet­ter part of half a cen­tu­ry.

A cen­tral role in that process was played by Gen­er­al Franz Halder.

We have tak­en note of Halder before, dis­cussing the fact that Rein­hard Gehlen cleared his for­ma­tion of a work­ing agree­ment with the U.S. by con­fer­ring with Halder and Admi­ral Karl von Doenitz, who suc­ceed­ed Hitler, fol­low­ing his alleged “sui­cide.”

Per­haps even more impor­tant is his deci­sive post-war work revis­ing the his­to­ry of the Wehrma­cht and World War  II, shep­herd­ing bla­tant, read­i­ly ver­i­fi­able lies into accept­ed his­tor­i­cal truth.

In the long, ongo­ing series of pro­grams about the Ukraine war, Mr. Emory has dis­cussed his belief that the war has func­tioned in a man­ner not unlike the Philoso­pher’s Stone of the medieval alchemists.

That stone was believed to be able to trans­form lead into gold. The war is trans­form­ing indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions in the West into the same his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ist fab­ric as the Ukrain­ian Insti­tute of Nation­al Mem­o­ry.

” . . . . After the war, he lived a com­fort­able life as an author, com­men­ta­tor and ‘his­tor­i­cal con­sul­tant’ for the U.S. Army Cen­ter of Mil­i­tary His­to­ry (CMH). . . .”

“. . . . Halder’s job was to reha­bil­i­tate Nazism for the ben­e­fit of his new Amer­i­can patrons. If the Nazis could be ide­o­log­i­cal­ly sep­a­rat­ed from the Ger­man peo­ple and the Ger­man Army, Amer­i­ca could use the most use­ful of Hitler’s sol­diers in their war against the Sovi­et Union with­out rais­ing sus­pi­cion. Halder over­saw a team of 700 for­mer Wehrma­cht offi­cers and inten­tion­al­ly set about rewrit­ing his­to­ry to present the image of a clean Wehrma­cht and a Ger­man peo­ple igno­rant of Nazi bru­tal­i­ty. His deputy was CIA agent Adolf Heusinger, a Nazi war crim­i­nal who was large­ly respon­si­ble for plan­ning the end­less mas­sacres of ‘secu­ri­ty war­fare,’ and was lat­er a com­man­der of both the Ger­man Army and NATO. . . .”

” . . . . Halder enjoyed spe­cial sta­tus, releas­ing infor­ma­tion to only the most priv­i­leged jour­nal­ists and his­to­ri­ans. With the legit­i­ma­cy grant­ed by his title, access to infor­ma­tion, and U.S. gov­ern­ment back­ing, Halder’s CMH was con­sid­ered a gold stan­dard source for aca­d­e­m­ic his­to­ri­ans and their infor­ma­tion was high­ly cov­et­ed. Halder used this to care­ful­ly vet to whom he released infor­ma­tion, ensur­ing he got the max­i­mum impact.”

“From 1955 to 1991 his works were cit­ed at least 700 times in aca­d­e­m­ic pub­li­ca­tions, espe­cial­ly by pro­fes­sors and researchers in West­ern mil­i­tary acad­e­mies. Since West­ern his­to­ri­ans were forced to drink from Halder’s well, they passed down the poi­son to their stu­dents, and from there the lies worked their way into the pub­lic con­scious­ness. Even­tu­al­ly, Nazi pro­pa­gan­da was laun­dered into ‘truth’ through sim­ple rep­e­ti­tion and care­ful con­trol of sources. . . . .”

Next, we detail the ide­o­log­i­cal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the top Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary com­man­der with Third Reich Ally Stephan Ban­dera.

The Com­man­der-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Four Star Gen­er­al Valery Zaluzh­nyi is not shy about his pro­found affin­i­ty with Ban­dera: “ . . . . Zaluzh­nyi is shown in uni­form stand­ing in a mil­i­tary office with sev­er­al oth­er sol­diers in front of a desk adorned with busts of OUN‑B lead­ers and Nazi-col­lab­o­ra­tors Stepan Ban­dera and Roman Shukhevych. Pho­tos of both Shukhevych and Ban­dera are also promi­nent­ly hang­ing on the wall in the back­ground along with the red and black Ban­derite flag. . . .”

As dis­cussed in our pre­vi­ous arti­cle, post-World War II U.S. polit­i­cal cul­ture has been shaped by the Nazi/Pentagon alliance of Gen­er­al Franz Halder and hun­dreds of his for­mer fel­low Wehrma­cht offi­cers. That alliance has re-shaped the per­cep­tion of the Sec­ond World War in an unabashed­ly pro-Nazi fash­ion.

The white­wash­ing of Ban­dera and his OUN/B dates back to the incor­po­ra­tion of that organization’s par­ent agency, the Rein­hard Gehlen “Org” into the U.S. intel­li­gence estab­lish­ment.

. . . . The CIC had an agent who pho­tographed eleven vol­umes of the secret files of the OUN/Bandera.  These files clear­ly show how most of its mem­bers worked for the Gestapo or SS as police­men, exe­cu­tion­ers, par­ti­san hunters, and munic­i­pal offi­cials. The OUN con­tri­bu­tion to the Ger­man war effort was sig­nif­i­cant, includ­ing rais­ing vol­un­teers for sev­er­al SS divi­sions. It was pre­cise­ly because of its work with the Nazis that Wis­ner want­ed to hire the OUN for his spe­cial forces. . . .

The New York Times has been at the fore­front of the white­wash­ing of the Azov for­ma­tions and whole­sale denial of the Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of the Ukrain­ian nation­al secu­ri­ty struc­ture.

Now, “the Gray Lady” has been glo­ri­fy­ing the Brat­st­vo bat­tal­ion, anoth­er of the fas­cist fight­ing for­ma­tions in the Ukrain­ian order of bat­tle.

Descend­ed from the UNA-UNSO, itself hav­ing been led by Yuri Shukhevych, son and col­lab­o­ra­tor of Roman Shukhevych, the Brat­st­vo bat­tal­ion is being hailed as an exem­plary com­man­do unit.

(Roman Shukhevych was an OUN/B war crim­i­nal who, among oth­er things, led the Lvov pogrom of June 30, 1941 com­mit­ted by the SS-con­trolled Ein­satz­gruppe Nachti­gall. He was declared a “Hero of Ukraine” by the polit­i­cal forces behind the Maid­an coup.)

Among those join­ing the nor­mal­iza­tion of Azov Nazis are: Vogue mag­a­zine, MSNBC and the School of Visu­al Arts (New York).

For­mer press offi­cer of the Azov Bat­tal­ion, Dmytro Kozatsky has achieved grav­i­tas in the West at the named insti­tu­tions.

“ . . . . Protests erupt­ed at DOC NYC’s pre­miere of the film Free­dom on Fire (2022) at the School of Visu­al Arts (SVA) The­atre in Man­hat­tan, which host­ed Kozatsky as a guest speak­er. Audi­ence mem­bers who raised the accu­sa­tions dur­ing a Q&A were forcibly removed from the event. . . .”

Author Lam­bert Strether con­cludes: “ . . . . what stuns me is the ease with which Kozatsky is pen­e­trat­ing our cul­tur­al insti­tu­tions. Book­ing agents, facil­i­ties man­agers, press agents, board mem­bers who orga­nize such things, fash­ion edi­tors, net­work anchors: All com­bin­ing their efforts to ser­vice a Nazi pro­fes­sion­al­ly, as if it were the most nor­mal thing in the world, which at this point per­haps it is. . . .”

The Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Amer­i­ca via the Azov “Philosopher’s Stone” has swept up Con­gres­sion­al rep­re­sen­ta­tives from both polit­i­cal par­ties and aca­d­e­m­ic groups at Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty.

Not to be out­done by the above indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions, the ADL has joined the cho­rus declar­ing that the Azovs aren’t Nazis.

Per­haps the white­wash­ing of the Azov Nazis should not sur­prise, par­tic­u­lar­ly giv­en that the for­ma­tions’ atroc­i­ties in Ukraine are wide­ly attrib­uted to—drumroll, fanfare—the Rus­sians!

Fore­most in the West­ern fal­si­fi­ca­tion of Ukrainian/Azov atroc­i­ties is the mas­sacre at Bucha, which helped ter­mi­nate and mar­gin­al­ize ongo­ing behind-the-scenes nego­ti­a­tions to end the war.

One of the few West­ern voic­es cor­rect­ly attribut­ing the Bucha mas­sacre is Scott Rit­ter.

“ . . . . Ukrain­ian secu­ri­ty forces, in par­tic­u­lar the “Safari” unit staffed by vet­er­ans of the neo-Nazi Azov Reg­i­ment, caught up with scores of these refugees while they made their way north and, in the ver­nac­u­lar of the Ukraini­ans, “cleansed” them, gun­ning them down on the spot, or bind­ing their hands behind their backs before exe­cut­ing them in the alley­ways and streets of Bucha. . . .”
