FTR #243 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

MP3 One Seg­ment

1. As the title indi­cates, this pro­gram (like oth­ers with this name) updates, and/or intro­duces, mis­cel­la­neous sto­ries. Begin­ning with dis­cus­sion of the Waco, Texas, liq­ui­da­tion of the Branch David­i­ans, the broad­cast notes the untime­ly death of Car­los Ghigliot­ti, an infrafred expert who had been involved in a wrong­ful-death law­suit against the gov­ern­ment. Ghigliot­ti had main­tained that flash­es shown on a video­tape of the final assault on the Branch David­i­an com­pound came from gov­ern­ment gun­fire. The 42-year-old died of an appar­ent heart attack, his decom­posed body found at his office at Infrared Tech­nolo­gies Corp. of Lau­rel, Mary­land. His death was seen by the plain­tiffs as great­ly hin­der­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion of their case. (The San Fran­cis­co Exam­in­er, 5/15/2000, p. A10.)

2. Next, the broad­cast high­lights the recent pur­chase of Unit­ed Press Inter­na­tion­al by the Uni­fi­ca­tion Church of Rev­erend Sun Myung Moon. (The New York Times, 5/16/2000, p. A19.) For the once pres­ti­gious wire ser­vice (which had fall­en on lean times in recent years), this was anoth­er step down the lad­der of jour­nal­is­tic cred­i­bil­i­ty. A fix­ture of the Amer­i­can far right, the Moon orga­ni­za­tion has strong links to inter­na­tion­al fas­cism and the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty. Recent­ly, George Bush Sr. has been doing speech­es on behalf of the Moon orga­ni­za­tion in Latin Amer­i­ca.

3. The pro­gram then sup­ple­ments infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in FTR 232. Chron­i­cling the absorp­tion of the Lon­don Stock Exchange by the Deutsche Borse, that pro­gram focused on the con­trol of the new, “merged” iX exchange by the “Big Three” of Ger­man banking–The Deutsche Bank, Dres­d­ner Bank and Com­merzbank. These insti­tu­tions were the back­bone of the Third Reich in its above-ground phase, and con­tin­ue in that role as part of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion. In FTR 232, Mr. Emory closed the dis­cus­sion by not­ing the obser­va­tion by the out­go­ing head of the Lon­don Stock Exchange that the “endgame” of the liai­son between the iX exchange and NASDAQ was a full merg­er with the Amer­i­can high-tech mar­ket. This broad­cast notes that NASDAQ is now in dis­cus­sion with iX to effect a com­plete merg­er. (The Finan­cial Times, 7/18/2000, P.1; The Wall Street Jour­nal, 7/18/2000, p. C14.)

4. In the series on Ger­man cor­po­rate con­trol of Amer­i­can media, Mr. Emory not­ed the liai­son between the Pear­son cor­po­ra­tion and Ber­tels­mann, and the unsuc­cess­ful law­suit filed by Holo­caust revi­sion­ist David Irv­ing against Pen­guin books, Pear­son­’s main trade pub­lish­ing arm. This pro­gram notes Irv­ing’s pres­ence at a Holo­caust revi­sion­ist con­fer­ence and the endorse­ment of the gath­er­ing’s the­sis by the for­mer Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Pete McClosekey (a “lib­er­al” Repub­li­can.) (San Jose Mer­cury News, 5/30/2000, p. 8A.)

5. Focus­ing on a dif­fer­ent kind of holo­caust denial, the pro­gram under­scores the dis­sem­i­na­tion of the hypoth­e­sis that AIDS is not caused by HIV. Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Rick Lazio (cur­rent­ly run­ning against Hillary Clin­ton for the Sen­ate) took an advo­ca­cy stance on behalf of a con­stituent who endors­es the hypoth­e­sis that HIV does not cause the dis­ease. (The New York Times, 7/28/2000, p. A21.) In numer­ous broad­casts, Mr. Emory has not­ed the dis­turb­ing indi­ca­tions that AIDS was delib­er­ate­ly cre­at­ed, and the prob­a­ble con­nec­tion of Fort Det­rick, Mary­land to its cre­ation. This pro­gram doc­u­ments a chill­ing devel­op­ment in the war on drugs.

6. As part of an attempt to erad­i­cate the Colom­bian mar­i­jua­na, cocaine and opi­um crops, the Unit­ed States and Britain are uti­liz­ing bio­log­i­cal war­fare agents from Fort Det­rick and for­mer Sovi­et biowar spe­cial­ists from Kaza­khstan to genet­i­cal­ly alter some of these bio-war agents. (Coun­ter­punch, 6/-15/2000, p.1.)

7. Mr. Emory notes that the Nazi tract Ser­pen­t’s Walk entails a takeover of the Unit­ed States by the descen­dants of the SS, after an attack by genet­i­cal­ly-altered bio­log­i­cal war­fare agents of osten­si­bly Russ­ian ori­gin wipes out much of the world’s pop­u­la­tion. Not­ing that these agents were dis­trib­uted through the drug infil­tra­tion routes into the U.S., the pro­gram under­scores the poten­tial for delib­er­ate mis­use of the joint Amer­i­can-British effort in Colom­bia by ele­ments of the “Under­ground Reich.” (Ser­pen­t’s Walk, soft­cov­er, Nation­al Van­guard Books, copy­right 1991, ISBN# 0–937944-05‑X, pp 145–6.) (Record­ed on 8/6/2000.)
