Birds of A Feather

In FTR#1243, we present infor­ma­tion about the appar­ent biowar­fare pro­grams the U.S. fund­ed in Ukraine. These bear more intense scruti­ny. In a 4/06 U.N. Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil meet­ing, Rus­sia alleged that migra­to­ry birds had been dig­i­tized, fit­ted with cap­sules of dead­ly pathogens and were tracked via satel­lite. The Rus­sians claim to actu­al­ly have some of these dig­i­tized birds. This alle­ga­tion aligns with known U.S. biowar­fare inves­ti­ga­tion of and exper­i­ments with, migra­to­ry birds. A pro­gram in India in the 1960s was super­vised by the U.S. Army and anoth­er pro­gram in the same time peri­od involved plac­ing the vir­u­lent-bit­ing Lone Star Tick in the Atlantic Fly­way used by birds migrat­ing between North and South Amer­i­ca.

Update on the Patreon Site

Updat­ing the sta­tus of Mr. Emory’s Patre­on site: The tran­scrip­tion soft­ware has proved too impre­cise to per­mit easy edit­ing. Instead of the tran­scrip­tions we will be offer­ing: bi-week­ly Zoom Q & A ses­sions and access to writ­ten arti­cles that Mr. Emory will cre­ate. Record­ed seg­ments con­tin­ue to be uploaded and should be com­plete present­ly.

Latest Patreon Talk: History of French Fascism–Cartels, La Cagoule, Vichy, Postwar Fascist International

In the lat­est Patre­on talk, record­ed on French Elec­tion Day, 4/24/2022, we explore the his­to­ry of French fas­cism from the transna­tion­al cor­po­rate links of the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry to the rise of the Front Nation­al. Par­tic­u­lar empha­sis is on the con­ti­nu­ity from the Pre-WWII Cagoule, through the SS-aligned Vichy fas­cist milieu to the oper­a­tions of the post-WWII fas­cist inter­na­tion­al. The talk high­lights some of the French fas­cists in Dal­las, Texas, 11/22/1963. Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

Patreon Talk, 4/23 Plus Update: Birds of War–More (and Terrifying) Detail on Apparent U.S. Biological Warfare Labs in Ukraine

The lat­est Patre­on talk high­lights the 4/6/2022 UN Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil dis­cus­sion, boy­cotted by the U.S. and U.K. and blacked out in West­ern media, at which Rus­sia detailed its appar­ent dis­cov­er­ies of U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­grams in Ukraine. Some of the most star­tling infor­ma­tion con­cerned “dig­i­tized,” satel­lite-mon­i­tored migra­to­ry birds fit­ted with cap­sules of dead­ly pathogens. When the birds are over a tar­get­ed coun­try, they can be killed and the pathogens spread, pre­cip­i­tat­ing an epi­dem­ic. A 1960s pro­gram run by the U.S. Army and involv­ing migra­to­ry birds at an Indi­an bird sanc­tu­ary may have been a pre­cur­sor to this pro­gram.

Latest Patreon Talk: Russian “Interference” in 2016 Election–A Dog That Won’t Hunt

Exem­pli­fy­ing the dis­in­for­ma­tion sur­round­ing Ukraine, Rus­sia et al is the remark­able charge that Putin/Russia influ­enced the out­come of the 2016 elec­tion. Hillary Clin­ton got almost three mil­lion more votes than Don­ald Trump. Putin/Russia did not cre­ate the elec­toral col­lege. Face­book posts from Rus­sia were 40,000 out of 3 tril­lion posts–a few hun­dreds of one per­cent of the posts in that peri­od. THAT influ­enced the elec­tion?!! Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca, Peter Thiel, Face­book, Palan­tir helped keep poten­tial Clin­ton vot­ers at home, tar­get­ing poten­tial Sanders vot­ers.

Latest Patreon Talk: The OUN/B, the ABN and the Assassination of JFK

In the lat­est Patre­on talk, Mr. Emory delves into man­i­fes­ta­tions of polit­i­cal lying, with the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy as foundation/centerpiece of dis­cus­sion. The role of the Ukrain­ian fas­cist OUN/B and over­lap­ping Anti-Bol­she­vik Bloc of Nations in the JFK assas­si­na­tion com­prise the bulk of the pre­sen­ta­tion.

Latest Patreon Talk: Ukrainian Police Bear “Azov Imprint”; Are Source for Russian “Atrocity” Allegations

Pro­lif­er­at­ing Russ­ian “atroc­i­ty” alle­ga­tions are fil­tered through the Azov-influ­enced Ukrain­ian police estab­lish­ment. Zelen­sky’s secu­ri­ty forces engage in sys­tem­at­ic hor­rors.

Latest Patreon Talk: US Intelligence Officials Wear Two Hats; Spooks and Wall Street Lawyers

The top intel­li­gence offi­cers whose activ­i­ties shaped the polit­i­cal land­scape of the 20th cen­tu­ry and the foun­da­tions of polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic real­i­ty of the 21st wore the dual hats of promi­nent cor­po­rate lawyers and exec­u­tive-lev­el spooks. Sul­li­van & Cromwell part­ners John Fos­ter and Allen Dulles were Eisen­how­er’s Sec­re­tary of State and CIA Direc­tor, respec­tive­ly. High­lights Include: CIA offi­cer Frank Wisner’s role as direc­tor of the Office of Pol­i­cy Coor­di­na­tion under the Foster/Allen Dulles stew­ard­ship; Wisner’s pre­vi­ous work for Carter, Led­yard and Milburn—another key Wall Street law firm that was the gen­er­al coun­sel for the Dow Jones Cor­po­ra­tion (the par­ent firm of the New York Stock Exchange); OSS chief William Donovan’s work as a lead­ing Wall Street lawyer; Donovan’s 1923 “sym­pa­thet­ic” lunch with Adolf Hitler.

On the Patreon Site: History of Azov Evolution, From WWII to Present

In the most recent pre­sen­ta­tion on Mr. Emory’s Patre­on site, we chron­i­cle the evo­lu­tion of the Azov man­i­fes­ta­tion from the clos­ing stages of World War II and merg­ing of the Gehlen Org—a front for the Nazi SS—into the CIA. ” . . . . His [Gehlen’s] FHO was con­nect­ed in this role with a num­ber of secret fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions in the coun­tries to Ger­many’s east. These includ­ed Stepan Ban­der­a’s ‘B Fac­tion’ of the Orga­ni­za­tion of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists (OUN/B) . . . . The mil­i­tary intel­li­gence his­to­ri­an Colonel William Cor­son put it most suc­cinct­ly, ‘Gehlen’s orga­ni­za­tion was designed to pro­tect the Odessa Nazis. It amounts to an excep­tion­al­ly well-orches­trat­ed diver­sion.’. . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.
