Latest Patreon Talks: Comparison with Japanese Pre-WWII Child-Rearing and Contemporary American Behavior; Reflections on Death of Ayman Al-Zawahiri

In the lat­est Patre­on talks–three, one-hour pre­sen­ta­tions per week–Mr. Emory com­pares the mil­i­tary incul­ca­tion of Japan­ese youth in the pre-World War II peri­od with the sub­mer­sion of Amer­i­can boys in a cog­ni­tive mil­i­tary cul­ture pre­sent­ed by movies, TV, video-games and the Inter­net. In addi­tion, we review the role of Mohammed Al-Zawahiri–the late Ayman’s brother–with the Egypt­ian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, al-Qae­da, and the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beng­hazi.

In the lat­est series of three, one-hour talks per week, Mr. Emory sets forth a num­ber of points on his Patre­on site: The return to pow­er of the Mar­cos fam­i­ly in the Philip­pines may have sig­nif­i­cant effect on U.S. Pacif­ic pol­i­cy; U.S. Asian pol­i­cy in Cold War peri­od was in many ways an exten­sion of Japan’s Worldl War II pol­i­cy; “The New York Times” con­tin­ues its Mon­key Love for Ukrain­ian Nazis.

In the lat­est Patre­on talks, Mr. Emory con­nects many dots, includ­ing Covid-19 in Asia, the Abe assas­si­na­tion, the Moonies, the LDP, and the return to pow­er of the Mar­cos clan in the Philip­pines.

Eugene McCarthy Revisited

We have dis­cussed the dubi­ous con­nec­tions of the late Sen­a­tor Eugene McCarthy of Min­neso­ta, the “Peace Can­di­date” who upend­ed the 1968 Pres­i­den­tial race. We note his remark­able, reveal­ing 1980 endorse­ment of “Peace Can­di­date” Ronald Rea­gan: ” . . . . Mr. McCarthy said he had come to the con­clu­sion that Mr. Rea­gan’s posi­tions on nuclear dis­ar­ma­ment and tax­es were bet­ter than Pres­i­dent Carter’s . . . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

Ukrainian Phoenix Program?

The cleans­ing pro­gram being imple­ment­ed by the Zelen­sky gov­ern­ment and the SBU intel­li­gence ser­vice of Ukraine appears to be a Euro­pean man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Phoenix Pro­gram: ” . . . . Dou­glas Valen­tine, author of the sem­i­nal book The Phoenix Pro­gram (1990), in a recent inter­view told me that Phoenix went pub­lic in 1968 under the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion that it was ‘pro­tect­ing the peo­ple from terrorism’—like with the SBU pro­grams today. The deten­tions were large­ly designed to encour­age defec­tions while strik­ing fear in the pub­lic. . . .” ” . . . . Valen­tine . . . sees eerie par­al­lels between the orig­i­nal Phoenix pro­gram and Zelensky’s oper­a­tions today. In both cas­es, Valen­tine told CAM in an exclu­sive inter­view, ‘neu­tral­ism wasn’t tol­er­at­ed.’ . . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

Bringin’ It All Back Home? Again?

West­ern intel­li­gence agencies–American in particular–appear to be reca­pit­u­lat­ing “Oper­a­tion Cyclone” in Ukraine. That oper­a­tion involved the train­ing and oper­a­tional inser­tion of Islamists into Afghanistan in that coun­try’s war against the Sovi­et Union. “Cyclone 2” entails the use of Nazi/White Suprema­cist com­bat­ants in a clan­des­tine effort against Rus­sia in Ukraine. An impor­tant arti­cle from “The Gray Zone” reit­er­ates the warn­ing sound­ed here for years agout the “blow­back” this will be hav­ing in the U.S. Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.
