FTR #335 Walking The Snake, Part 2

MP3 Side 1 | Side 2


1. Sup­ple­ment­ing the dis­cus­sion and analy­sis from ear­li­er broad­casts on the sub­ject of the ter­ror­ist blitzkrieg of 9/11, this pro­gram derives its title from the Nazi tract Ser­pen­t’s Walk. Mr. Emory believes that, like The Turn­er Diaries (also pub­lished by Nation­al Van­guard Books), the book is actu­al­ly a blue­print for what is going to take place. It is a nov­el about a Nazi takeover of the Unit­ed States in the mid­dle of the 21st cen­tu­ry. The book describes the Third Reich going under­ground, buy­ing into the Amer­i­can media, and tak­ing over the coun­try.  “It assumes that Hitler’s war­rior elite — the SS — did­n’t give up their strug­gle for a White world when they lost the Sec­ond World War. Instead their sur­vivors went under­ground and adopt­ed some of their tac­tics of their ene­mies: they began build­ing their eco­nom­ic mus­cle and buy­ing into the opin­ion-form­ing media. A cen­tu­ry after the war they are ready to chal­lenge the democ­rats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Amer­i­cans, who have begun to have their fill of gov­ern­ment-enforced mul­ti-cul­tur­al­ism and ‘equal­i­ty.’ ” (From the back cov­er of Ser­pen­t’s Walk by “Ran­dolph D. Calver­hall;” Copy­right 1991 [SC]; Nation­al Van­guard Books; 0–937944-05‑X.)

2. In the book, the Nazi takeover takes place after a bioter­ror attack on the Unit­ed States that kills much of the Amer­i­can pop­u­la­tion.  FTR#335 exam­ines links between the 9/11 inci­dent and what Mr. Emory calls “the Under­ground Reich.”  Begin­ning with dis­cus­sion of a fel­low trav­el­er of the Ger­man neo-Nazi NPD, the broad­cast high­lights the con­nec­tions between Ahmed Huber and the milieu of Osama Bin Laden.  (“Far Right Has Ties with Islam­ic Extreme” by Hugh Williamson and Philipp Jak­lin; Finan­cial Times; 11/9/2001; p. 4.)

3. Huber has met mem­bers of Bin Laden’s orga­ni­za­tion, but denies that the Al Taqwa man­age­ment group and the relat­ed Nada Man­age­ment firms were involved with fund­ing Bin Laden’s orga­ni­za­tion.  (Idem.)

4. Like Horst Mahler (dis­cussed in FTR#333), Huber is an asso­ciate of the NPD, as well as Islam­ic extrem­ists.  (Idem.)

5. A doc­tri­naire anti-Semi­te and Holo­caust denier, Huber was close­ly asso­ci­at­ed with a Nazi émi­gré milieu in Nasser’s Egypt dis­cussed in numer­ous past broad­casts.  (“Les Amis de Fau­ris­son: Ahmed Rami” by Gilles Kar­masyn.)

6. In par­tic­u­lar, Huber was asso­ci­at­ed in Egypt with Johann Von Leers, a Goebbels assis­tant for anti-Semit­ic pro­pa­gan­da.  (Idem.)

7. In Egypt, Von Leers ran an anti-Semit­ic pro­pa­gan­da insti­tute for Nass­er, and became asso­ci­at­ed with a milieu that includ­ed the noto­ri­ous Swiss Nazi Fran­cois Genoud and the Grand Mufti. (Dream­er of the Day: Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey and the Post­war Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al; by Kevin Coogan; Copy­right 1999 [SC]; ISBN 1–57027-039–2; p. 585.)

8. Youss­eff  Nada, the head of Nada man­age­ment sat on the board of a pres­ti­gious geo-polit­i­cal think tank that includ­ed Hen­ry Kissinger and Mikail Gor­bachev.  (“Bin Laden Trail Extends to Swiss Out­fit” by Yaroslav Trofi­mov; Wall Street Jour­nal; 9/21/2001; p. A19.)

9. Next, the pro­gram high­lights sus­pi­cions that the Al Taqwa firm (Nada Man­age­ment) was asso­ci­at­ed with the stock mar­ket manip­u­la­tion dis­cussed in FTR#‘s 327 and 331.  (“Stock Trades Probed for Ties to Bin Laden” by William Droz­di­ak; Wash­ing­ton Post; 9/18/2001; p. A08.)

10. Among the com­pa­nies whose stocks were involved in the “short sell­ing” are Swiss Rein­sur­ance and Munich Rein­sur­ance.  (Idem.)  Both com­pa­nies have lia­bil­i­ty in the World Trade Cen­ter bomb­ing.  (See below.)

11. Allianz was anoth­er insur­ance com­pa­ny whose stock was (accord­ing to some) sus­pi­cious­ly trad­ed pri­or to the 9/11 attacks.  (“Pos­si­bly Sus­pi­cious Trad­ing Alerts U.S., Ger­man Offi­cials” by Floyd Nor­ris and Edmund L. Andrews [New York Times]; San Jose Mer­cury News; 9/17/2001; p. 4C.)

12. The bal­ance of the first of the broad­cast deals with the issue of pos­si­ble Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion eco­nom­ic con­trol of the World Trade Cen­ter.

13. The WTC was leased by Lar­ry A. Sil­ver­stein just before the attacks.  (“Insur­er Sues to Lim­it its Pay­out for World Trade Cen­ter” by Stephen Laba­ton; New York Times; 10/23/2001; p. B5.)

14. In order to lim­it its lia­bil­i­ty, Swiss Re is suing Sil­ver­stein.  (Idem.)

15. Inter­est­ing­ly (and per­haps sig­nif­i­cant­ly), “there was no insur­ance pol­i­cy yet issued on the prop­er­ties when they were destroyed.”  (Idem.)

16. The pro­gram reviews infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in FTR#305 con­cern­ing the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion’s use of Jew­ish busi­ness­men in its oper­a­tions. (Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile; Paul Man­ning; Copy­right 1981 [HC]; Lyle Stu­art Inc.; ISBN 0–8184-0309–8; P. 227.)

17. As not­ed in The New York Times, Mr. Sil­ver­stein “has the lest to lose finan­cial­ly and the most to gain.”  (“Twin Tow­ers at the Cen­ter of Legal Brawl” by Stephen Laba­ton and Jonathan D. Glater; New York Times; 11/3/2001; p. C1.)

18. Sil­ver­stein was the ben­e­fi­cia­ry of the lob­by­ing efforts of Jack Quinn, who had lob­bied Pres­i­dent Clin­ton on behalf of Marc Rich. (Idem.)

19. The three insur­ance com­pa­nies whose stock was “sold short” pri­or to the 9/11 attacks-Swiss Re, Munich Re and Allianz-face an enor­mous pay­off to Sil­ver­stein. (Idem.)

20. Sil­ver­stein was large­ly cap­i­tal­ized by a Gen­er­al Motors sub­sidiary and UBS War­burg. (Idem.)

21. Both GM and UBS War­burg (for­mer­ly Union Bank of Switzer­land) have strong con­nec­tions to The Bor­mann group.  The Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion has sig­nif­i­cant cap­i­tal par­tic­i­pa­tion in GM, through the Her­mann Schmitz Trust.  (Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile; Paul Man­ning; p. 280.)

22. The pro­gram under­scores the pro­found con­nec­tions of UBS to the Nazi I.G. Far­ben chem­i­cal car­tel and, through the I.G. and its suc­ces­sor com­pa­nies, to the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion.  (Ibid.; pp. 160–161.)

23. One of the three firms that grew out of IG after its breakup at the end of World War II, the Bay­er firm saw its stock rise 33% as a result of the anthrax attacks in the Unit­ed States.  (“Biotech­nol­o­gy Stocks Are Gain­ing on Anthrax Scare” by Charles Piller; Los Ange­les Times; 10/18/2001; p. C1.)  (Bay­er is the mak­er of Cipro, a drug that is used to treat anthrax.)  The prox­im­i­ty of ele­ments involved with the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion to the 9/11 attacks and relat­ed events, and the prof­its that may have accrued to that remark­able and dead­ly insti­tu­tion should not be over­looked.  In Ser­pen­t’s Walk, the Under­ground Reich infil­trates the US mil­i­tary pri­or to its takeover of the Unit­ed States.

24. In that con­text, it is impor­tant to note that the anthrax strain uti­lized in the attacks appears to have come from the Unit­ed States.  (“Dead­ly Spores Were Made in the U.S., FBI Says;” San Jose Mer­cury News; 11/7/2001; p. 5A.)

25. Dubbed “the Ames strain,” this par­tic­u­lar vari­ety of anthrax was heav­i­ly researched as a bio­log­i­cal war­fare weapon by the Unit­ed States.  (“The Sci­en­tists Prob­ing Ter­ror Anthrax Trace Microbe’s Fam­i­ly Tree” by Anto­nio Regal­a­do; Wall Street Jour­nal; 11/8/2001; pp. A1-A14.)

26. It should be not­ed that apartheid-era South Africa’s bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram had stock­piled sev­er­al dif­fer­ent anthrax strains.  (“Anthrax Bac­te­ria Like­ly To Be US Mil­i­tary Strain” by Deb­o­ra MacKen­zie; New Sci­en­tist; 10/24/2001.)  As dis­cussed in FTR#‘s 317 and 324, among those assist­ing the South African biowar­fare pro­gram was Dr. Lar­ry Creed Ford, whose work for the apartheid gov­ern­ment was con­duct­ed in con­junc­tion with ele­ments of the CIA. (See also: FTR#225.)

27. With spec­u­la­tion grow­ing that domes­tic ter­ror­ists may have been behind the anthrax attacks, Ford (appar­ent­ly in touch with right wing extrem­ist groups) is among those whose name has been dis­cussed.  (“U.S. Groups Have Some Ties to Germ War­fare” by Jo Thomas; New York Times; 11/2/2001; p. B8.)

28. It is note­wor­thy that South Africa is among the coun­tries in which the Bin Laden orga­ni­za­tion has been active.  (“South Africa Probes Trans­ac­tions by Al-Qae­da” by James Lam­ont and Nicol Degli Inno­cen­ti; Finan­cial Times; 10/22/2001; p. 4.)

29. South African Islam­ic extrem­ists have played host to the above-men­tioned Ahmed Huber.  (“Anti-Semi­tism World­wide 1997/98” by the Stephen Roth Insti­tute of Tel Aviv Uni­ver­si­ty.)

30. The NPD (with which Huber is asso­ci­at­ed) is close­ly allied with the Nation­al Alliance (the pub­lish­er of Ser­pen­t’s Walk.)  (“Far Right Vio­lence Soars in Ger­many” by Mar­tin A. Lee; San Fran­cis­co Bay Guardian; 3/19/2001.)  The pro­gram points out the links between the Under­ground Reich, domes­tic ter­ror­ists, Islam­ic extrem­ists, ele­ments of the U.S. nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment, as well as the apartheid regime of South Africa.  The pos­si­bil­i­ty that the anthrax attacks may have been per­pe­trat­ed by one, sev­er­al or all of the above ele­ments is not one to be too read­i­ly dis­missed.

31. It may be impos­si­ble to deter­mine the ori­gin of the anthrax, since the Iowa State archive was destroyed on Octo­ber 10 or 11, after being held for decades.  (“FBI Mis­steps in Anthrax Probe Alleged” by William J. Broad, David John­ston, and Paul Ziel­bauer [New York Times]; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 11/9/2001; p. A7.)

32. The FBI sanc­tioned the destruc­tion.  (Idem.)


One comment for “FTR #335 Walking The Snake, Part 2”

  1. [...] In FTR #335 and FTR #336, Dave Emory con­tin­ues his analy­sis of the Nazi tract Serpent’s Walk. These pod­casts belong in fact to a wider series of shows on 9/11 that could be called, if I may, the « Con­nect­ing the Dots Series ». Pub­lished by Nation­al Van­guard Books, the same pub­lish­er as The Turn­er Diaries, this book is a blue­print for what is to come rather than a nov­el. Dave Emory begins the analy­sis of FTR #335 by recall­ing the links that exist between Osama bin Laden and Ahmed Huber. Direc­tor of the bank Al-Taqwa that helped to finance ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions such as the Hamas and Al-Qae­da, Huber has been instru­men­tal in con­nect­ing extrem­ist ele­ments with­in the Islam­ic com­mu­ni­ty with what can be described as the Under­ground Reich, a Third Reich gone under­ground at the end of WWII. Among oth­ers, he befriend­ed lumi­nar­ies such as François Genoud, Johannes Van Leers, Aya­tol­lah Khome­i­ni, Amin Al-Hus­sei­ni, Youssef Nada and the Nazi émi­gré com­mu­ni­ty in Nasser’s Egypt. Then Emory men­tions stock mar­ket manip­u­la­tions that hap­pened just before 9/11, such as short sell­ing, rein­sur­ance fraud and oth­er gam­bits. See this pre­vi­ous post for more details. In that field of research, the case of Lar­ry A. Sil­ver­stein remains intrigu­ing. He leased the WTC just before the attacks, dur­ing the sum­mer. He was the one who had the more to gain and the less to lose with the attacks. More broad­ly, FTR #335 makes the con­nec­tion between the Bor­mann Cap­i­tal Net­work and some of the finan­cial play­ers who seemed to pull the strings behind the cur­tains, such as GM, UBS and the con­tin­u­a­tion of the pre­vi­ous I. G. Far­ben Nazi car­tel. The anthrax scare around 9/11 is also brought up. [...]
