Intro­duc­tion: Updat­ing and/or high­light­ing a vari­ety of sto­ries, this pro­gram begins with the sto­ry of Jere­mi­ah Dug­gan, a young British Jew mur­dered in Ger­many after trav­el­ing to Wies­baden to attend an event staged by the Schiller Insti­tute. A Ger­man branch of the fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion of Lyn­don La Rouche, the Schiller Insti­tute was stag­ing what the late, unfor­tu­nate Dug­gan believed to be an anti-war event, crit­i­cal of the Bush Admin­is­tra­tion. Dug­gan was not aware of the fas­cist char­ac­ter of the La Rouche orga­ni­za­tion, nor did he know of the group’s doc­tri­naire anti-Semi­tism. Although the evi­dence that Dug­gan was mur­dered is incon­tro­vert­ible, the Ger­man police author­i­ties are active­ly cov­er­ing up Duggan’s killing, insist­ing that he com­mit­ted sui­cide by run­ning in front of a car. Revis­it­ing the sub­ject of the mur­der­ous reac­tion of the Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ty to a Dan­ish newspaper’s pub­li­ca­tion of car­toons of the prophet Mohamed, the broad­cast details the active sup­pres­sion of two Cam­bridge Uni­ver­si­ty stu­dents’ com­mem­o­ra­tion of the event. Not only were the stu­dents forced into hid­ing by the reac­tion to the pub­li­ca­tion, but the Uni­ver­si­ty cen­sured them and the local police opened a crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tion into the stu­dents’ behav­ior! Next, the pro­gram details the con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of U.S. long-grain rice crops by genet­i­cal­ly engi­neered strains, and notes that the con­t­a­m­i­na­tion threat­ens the liveli­hood of the U.S. farm­ers. The “acci­den­tal” con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of the farm­ers’ seed stock came from the Bay­er and BASF firms—two “for­mer” mem­bers of the I.G. Far­ben chem­i­cal car­tel and major ele­ments of the post­war Under­ground Reich. After fur­ther dis­cus­sion of the begin­ning of syn­thet­ic fuel pro­duc­tion in the U.S., the broad­cast notes that the con­tin­ued high price of oil makes the mar­ket­ing of syn­thet­ic fuel com­mer­cial­ly viable. The high price of crude, in turn, is main­tained at its exor­bi­tant lev­el by con­tin­ued polit­i­cal insta­bil­i­ty and mil­i­tary adven­tur­ism, such as the recent Iran­ian kid­nap­ping of British sailors and Marines. After set­ting forth the fact that the Israeli mil­i­tary incur­sion into Lebanon had been planned well in advance, the broad­cast con­cludes with dis­cus­sion of the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty and left-wing king­mak­er George Soros may well be an oper­a­tive of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work and the Under­ground Reich.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Soros’s work for the Third Reich in World War II, help­ing with the “Aryaniza­tion” of Jew­ish prop­er­ty dur­ing the Holo­caust; the refusal of the Ger­man author­i­ties to reopen the Jer­mi­ah Dug­gan case, despite over­whelm­ing evi­dence that Dug­gan was killed; review of the I.G. Far­ben-devel­oped Fis­ch­er-Trop­sch hydro­gen process, which Mr. Emory long pre­dict­ed would be rein­tro­duced when the price of crude became suf­fi­cient­ly high to make syn­thet­ic fuel prof­itable.

1. Begin­ning with dis­cus­sion of the appar­ent mur­der of a young Jew­ish peace activist in Ger­many, the pro­gram notes that the young Briton had defen­sive wounds on his hands, had ingest­ed large quan­ti­ties of blood before dying, and had called his moth­er short­ly before his death to say he was in dan­ger. The victim—Jeremiah Duggan—had trav­eled to Ger­many to attend a con­fer­ence spon­sored by the Schiller insti­tute, the Ger­man com­po­nent of the fas­cist La Rouche orga­ni­za­tion. [Lyn­don La Rouche is a promi­nent Amer­i­can fas­cist, whose orga­ni­za­tion has gained con­sid­er­able trac­tion in the so-called “pro­gres­sive” sec­tor in the U.S. For more about the La Rouche orga­ni­za­tion, check out Den­nis King’s Lyn­don La Rouche and the New Amer­i­can Fas­cism.] “Com­pelling new evi­dence sug­gests that a 22-year-old Briton who had become involved with a right-wing polit­i­cal cult in Ger­many was mur­dered, con­tra­dict­ing the author­i­ties’ ver­dict of sui­cide. Two new reports from lead­ing foren­sic pathol­o­gists sug­gest that Jere­mi­ah Dug­gan, a stu­dent at the British Insti­tute in Paris, was bat­tered to death with a blunt instru­ment as he tried des­per­ate­ly to defend him­self. The find­ings, to be revealed on Tues­day, cast grave doubt on the offi­cial ver­dict that Dug­gan hurled him­self in front of cars on a dual car­riage­way in Wies­baden. Foren­sic spe­cial­ists found no trace of tire marks on his body, or any­thing to sug­gest that he had been struck by a vehi­cle. But they did detect clas­sic ‘defense wounds’ to Dug­gan’s fore­arms and hands, which usu­al­ly sug­gest some­one try­ing to pro­tect him­self. His head injuries are con­sis­tent with being beat­en and ‘exclude any pos­si­bil­i­ty that the injuries to his head occurred because a motor vehi­cle ran over the body’, accord­ing to the two stud­ies. . . .”
(“New Evi­dence Shows ‘Sui­cide’ Stu­dent Was Beat­en to Death” by Mark Townsend and Jamie Doward; The Lon­don Observ­er; 3/25/2007.)

2. Mr. Emory notes that the sto­ry of the killing of Jere­mi­ah Dug­gan is note­wor­thy for a cou­ple of rea­sons: it illus­trates just how dan­ger­ous the La Rouche orga­ni­za­tion is and the inci­dent also gives ample illus­tra­tion of the Under­ground Reich at work. Con­sid­er what we have here—a Ger­man fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion mur­ders a Jew with the con­nivance and active assis­tance of the Ger­man police and judi­cial author­i­ties! “ . . . 21 March 2003 Jere­mi­ah Dug­gan trav­els to Wies­baden for what he believes is an anti-war con­fer­ence. In fact, it was orga­nized by the far-right Schiller Insti­tute, which is inspired by Lyn­don LaRouche, a US right-wing con­spir­a­cy the­o­rist, and run by his wife. It has a his­to­ry of anti-Semi­tism. 27 March At 4.20am, Dug­gan, who was Jew­ish, called his moth­er, say­ing: ‘I’m in deep, deep trou­ble, I want out.’ Lat­er he was found dead on a dual car­riage­way. 29 March Ger­man author­i­ties claim he took his own life by jump­ing into traf­fic. . . .” (Idem.)

3. Next, the pro­gram high­lights the dis­grace­ful behav­ior of British author­i­ties. When two stu­dents at Cam­bridge University’s Clare Col­lege com­mem­o­rat­ed the anniver­sary of the dead­ly riot­ing that fol­lowed a Dan­ish paper’s pub­li­ca­tion of car­toons of the prophet Mohamed, the uni­ver­si­ty author­i­ties cen­sured them [even as they were dri­ven into hid­ing by threats against them], and the Cam­bridgeshire police opened a crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tion into their activ­i­ties! (For more dis­cus­sion of “Car­toon­gate,” see FTR#543.) “. . . .Last month, two stu­dents at Cam­bridge Uni­ver­si­ty’s Clare Col­lege became vic­tims of this state of affairs. The stu­dents ded­i­cat­ed an edi­tion of their satire mag­a­zine to the one-year anniver­sary of the glob­al Mus­lim riots which fol­lowed the pub­li­ca­tion of car­i­ca­tures of Muham­mad in the Dan­ish Jyl­lands Posten news­pa­per. As the stu­dents recalled, those riots led to the deaths of more than a hun­dred peo­ple. Although the British media refused to repub­lish the car­i­ca­tures, British Mus­lims held ter­ri­fy­ing protests through­out the coun­try where they called for the destruc­tion of Britain, the US, Den­mark and Israel and for the mur­der of all who refuse to accept the glob­al dom­i­na­tion of Islam. In their mag­a­zine, the stu­dents pub­lished some of the car­i­ca­tures and mocked the Mus­lims for their hypocrisy in accus­ing British soci­ety of racial prej­u­dice while call­ing for its vio­lent destruc­tion. The Mus­lim reac­tion was appar­ent­ly swift. Fear­ing for their lives, the stu­dents were forced into hid­ing. But the Mus­lims were not alone in their anger. Clare Col­lege set up a spe­cial dis­ci­pli­nary court to con­sid­er action against the stu­dents. And the Cam­bridgeshire police opened a crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tion against them in late Feb­ru­ary. . . .”

4. Many “For The Record” shows have dealt with the Ger­man I.G. Far­ben chem­i­cal firm. The back­bone of the Third Reich, I.G. Far­ben and its suc­ces­sor firms dom­i­nate the his­to­ry of the 20th and [so far] the 21st cen­turies. This pro­gram high­lights a prob­lem plagu­ing Amer­i­can rice farm­ers. Although U.S. agri­cul­ture has embraced genet­i­cal­ly-mod­i­fied crops, they have been large­ly reject­ed abroad, thus hurt­ing Amer­i­can agri­cul­tur­al exports. Recent­ly, U.S. rice farm­ers have been vic­tim­ized by two genet­i­cal­ly con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed crop strains—one made by Bay­er and the oth­er by BASF. Both Bay­er and BASF are suc­ces­sor firms to I.G. Far­ben, which was nev­er effec­tive­ly de-Naz­i­fied and which func­tioned as key Bor­mann enti­ties in the post­war peri­od. The genet­ic con­t­a­m­i­na­tion of the Amer­i­can rice crop has seri­ous­ly dam­aged the for­tunes of the U.S. rice-farm­ing com­mu­ni­ty. Is the con­t­a­m­i­na­tion acci­den­tal, or is it part of an eco­nom­ic war­fare pro­gram by the Under­ground Reich against the Unit­ed States? Are Bor­mann Orga­ni­za­tion con­trolled enti­ties fill­ing the gap in U.S. rice exports? (For more about I.G. Far­ben, see—among oth­er programs—FTR#’s 385, 411, 506, 511, 552. For more about I.G. Far­ben and its involve­ment with the post­war Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, see—among oth­er programs—FTR#’s 305, 576. For fur­ther research, take advan­tage of the books avail­able from Spit­fire.) “. . . U.S. farm­ers such as Zaun­brech­er have been caught in the mid­dle, fight­ing off domes­tic efforts to intro­duce gene-altered rice until inter­na­tion­al mar­kets warm to the prod­uct. He was going to plant a con­ven­tion­al vari­ety called Che­niere on at least 500 of his more than 2,000 acres, until he learned that it had become inex­plic­a­bly taint­ed with a weed killer-resis­tant gene cre­at­ed by Bay­er Crop­Science of Research Tri­an­gle Park, N.C., that was unap­proved for rice. In its place, he ordered Clearfield131, anoth­er non-engi­neered vari­ety, devel­oped by BASF of Ger­many. But on March 5, the USDA put out an emer­gency call to pre­vent all plant­i­ng of that vari­ety. Tests had found two lab­o­ra­to­ry-made genes not meant to be in it, one belong­ing to Bay­er and one that has yet to be ful­ly iden­ti­fied. . . .”

5. Sup­ple­ment­ing pre­vi­ous pro­grams about the resus­ci­ta­tion of the hydro­gena­tion process to devel­op gaso­line from coal, the pro­gram notes the nascent devel­op­ment of syn­thet­ic fuel pro­duc­tion in the Unit­ed States. (For more about this top­ic, see—among oth­er programs—FTR#’s 385, 544, 552.) “When rail­roads ruled, it was the sweat­ing fire­men shov­el­ing coal into the fur­nace who kept the engines run­ning. Now, near­ly two cen­turies after Stephen­son’s ‘Rock­et’ steam loco­mo­tive helped ush­er in the Indus­tri­al Rev­o­lu­tion, that same coal could be the fuel that keeps the jet age aloft. But with a twist: The planes of the future could be flown with liq­uid fuel made from coal or nat­ur­al gas. Already the Unit­ed States Air Force has car­ried out tests fly­ing a B‑52 Strato­fortress with a coal-based fuel. And Jet­Blue Air­ways Corp. sup­ports a bill in Con­gress that would extend tax cred­its for alter­na­tive fuels, push­ing tech­nol­o­gy to pro­duce jet fuel for the equiv­a­lent of $40 a bar­rel — way below cur­rent oil prices. Major coal min­ing com­pa­nies in the Unit­ed States, which has more coal reserves than Sau­di Ara­bia has oil, are invest­ing in ways to devel­op fuels derived from car­bon. The tech­nol­o­gy of pro­duc­ing a liq­uid fuel from coal or nat­ur­al gas is hard­ly new. The Fis­ch­er-Trop­sch process was devel­oped by Ger­man researchers Franz Fis­ch­er and Hans Trop­sch in 1923 and used by Ger­many and Japan dur­ing World War II to pro­duce alter­na­tive fuels. Indeed, in 1944, Ger­many pro­duced 6.5 mil­lion tons, or 124,000 bar­rels a day. . . .”

6. One of the fac­tors that makes the Fis­ch­er-Trop­sch process prac­ti­cal in this day and age is the fact that the price of oil has risen so much. The oil price rise, in turn, stems large­ly from the increase in vio­lence in the Mid­dle East. As dis­cussed in FTR#’s 560, 561, that increase in the price of oil is one of the most pro­found political/economic phe­nom­e­na of mod­ern times, effect­ing a world-wide trans­fer of wealth from vir­tu­al­ly every­one and every­thing into the cof­fers of the most foul indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions in the world. “Oil prices rose yes­ter­day when ten­sions with Iran esca­lat­ed after the Islam­ic Republic’s cap­ture of 15 UK Roy­al Navy sailors. The inci­dent comes at an impor­tant moment in the stand-off between Iran and the West over its nuclear ambi­tions. The US has sent a sec­ond air­craft car­ri­er to the Per­sian Gulf, and the Iran­ian navy has start­ed a week of naval exer­cis­es there. Height­ened geopo­lit­i­cal ten­sions com­bined with a tight­en­ing oil mar­ket have sent oil prices to new highs for the year. Crude and petro­le­um prod­uct inven­to­ries in the devel­oped world are declin­ing and US p[petrol demand is increas­ing at a stronger-than-expect­ed pace ahead of peak sum­mer demand. . . .”
(“Oil Ris­es After Cap­ture of UK Sailors Increas­es Ten­sions” by Kevin Mor­ri­son; Finan­cial Times; 3/24–25/2007; p. 12.)

7. High­light­ing an impor­tant, though lit­tle-known aspect of the Lebanon War of 2006, the broad­cast notes that the Israeli mil­i­tary cam­paign had been long in the plan­ning. It was not a spon­ta­neous reac­tion to the kid­nap­ping of some Israeli sol­diers. The cam­paign had actu­al­ly been dis­cussed with jour­nal­ists before the out­break of hos­til­i­ties. Although it is not a mat­ter of focus in this descrip­tion, the bat­tle plan as described in the Israeli press called for simul­ta­ne­ous flank­ing attacks [both right and left] by heavy armor and mech­a­nized infantry, an air drop of troops along the Litani Riv­er to pre­vent resup­ply and rein­force­ment and an aer­i­al assault on the Hezbol­lah lead­er­ship. Why this plan was aban­doned is a mat­ter of con­jec­ture. Some Israeli media sources have sug­gest­ed that the orig­i­nal bat­tle plan was aban­doned at the request of the Bush admin­is­tra­tion. What­ev­er the case, the cur­rent Israeli admin­is­tra­tion appears to be the mil­i­tary equiv­a­lent of the Bush admin­is­tra­tion, i.e. incom­pe­tent. “Jerusalem — Israel’s mil­i­tary response by air, land and sea to what it con­sid­ered a provo­ca­tion last week by Hezbol­lah mil­i­tants is unfold­ing accord­ing to a plan final­ized more than a year ago. In the six years since Israel end­ed its mil­i­tary occu­pa­tion of south­ern Lebanon, it watched war­i­ly as Hezbol­lah built up its mil­i­tary pres­ence in the region. When Hezbol­lah mil­i­tants kid­napped two Israeli sol­diers last week, the Israeli mil­i­tary was ready to react almost instant­ly.’ Of all of Israel’s wars since 1948, this was the one for which Israel was most pre­pared,’ said Ger­ald Stein­berg, pro­fes­sor of polit­i­cal sci­ence at Bar-Ilan Uni­ver­si­ty. ‘In a sense, the prepa­ra­tion began in May 2000, imme­di­ate­ly after the Israeli with­draw­al, when it became clear the inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty was not going to pre­vent Hezbol­lah from stock­pil­ing mis­siles and attack­ing Israel. By 2004, the mil­i­tary cam­paign sched­uled to last about three weeks that we’re see­ing now had already been blocked out and, in the last year or two, it’s been sim­u­lat­ed and rehearsed across the board.’ More than a year ago, a senior Israeli army offi­cer began giv­ing Pow­er­Point pre­sen­ta­tions, on an off-the-record basis, to U.S. and oth­er diplo­mats, jour­nal­ists and think tanks, set­ting out the plan for the cur­rent oper­a­tion in reveal­ing detail. Under the ground rules of the brief­in­gs, the offi­cer could not be iden­ti­fied. . . .”

8. In his dis­cus­sion of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, Mr. Emory has not­ed that the orga­ni­za­tion makes a point of using Jews as front men and oper­a­tives. In that con­text, the broad­cast con­cludes by not­ing that left-wing Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty activist and king­mak­er George Soros appears to have got­ten his pro­fes­sion­al start help­ing with the Third Reich’s appro­pri­a­tion of Jew­ish assets dur­ing the Holoaust. Is Soros a “Bor­mann Jew”?! (For more about the Bor­mann organization’s use of Jews, see—among oth­er programs—FTR#305. For dis­cus­sion of Soros’ Quan­tum Fund and its appar­ent links to the Under­ground Reich, see FTR#576.) “ . . . One of the cen­tral play­ers in this con­cert­ed attack has been the bil­lion­aire George Soros. Soros is an anti-Zion­ist Jew with a trou­bling past. Specif­i­cal­ly, by his own admis­sion in inter­views with 60 Min­utes in 1998 and PBS in 1993, Soros col­lab­o­rat­ed with the Nazis in seiz­ing Jew­ish prop­er­ty in Budapest in 1944. Author Serge Trifkovic, who is cur­rent­ly research­ing a biog­ra­phy of Soros, tells of a Holo­caust sur­vivor in Hun­gary who claims that the rea­son Soros was allowed to remain free was ‘the boy’s spe­cial knowl­edge of the Jew­ish com­mu­ni­ty and its attempts to pro­tect its prop­er­ty from con­fis­ca­tion.’ . . .”
