MP3: Side 1 | Side 2

Intro­duc­tion: Begin­ning with the sub­ject of Robert Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion, the pro­gram notes that the offi­cial ver­sion of the killing remains fun­da­men­tal­ly inad­e­quate. Mr. Emory syn­op­sizes some of the key aspects of the phys­i­cal evi­dence and the evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries lead­ing in the direc­tion of the cor­ri­dors of pow­er, as well as Amer­i­ca’s oth­er polit­i­cal assas­si­na­tions.

Next, the broad­cast sets forth the lat­est devel­op­ments in the O.J. Simp­son case. As Amer­i­ca fields its first African/American major par­ty pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, O.J. is back in the news, not only because of his recent arrest while attempt­ing to recov­er sports mem­o­ra­bil­ia stolen from him, but because of the pub­li­ca­tion of a book enti­tled If I Did It.

Exam­in­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty of right-wing ter­ror­ism dur­ing this his­toric elec­tion sea­son, the dis­cus­sion notes the arrest of a Tex­an with a 25-gal­lon con­tain­er of cyanide, as well as the indict­ment of a mys­te­ri­ous Ger­man-Amer­i­can for pos­ses­sion of ricin.

Sup­ple­ment­ing Mr. Emory’s decades-long cov­er­age of Colo­nia Dignidad‑a German/Chilean Nazi out­post, the pro­gram high­lights appar­ent Bor­mann net­work cap­i­tal sup­port for the com­pound and its fas­cist activ­i­ties. Anoth­er sto­ry Mr. Emory has fol­lowed for decades is the saga of Monz­er al-Kas­sar, a Syr­i­an-born weapons deal­er with a sin­is­ter cur­ricu­lum vitae of great length and com­plex­i­ty.

Recent­ly arrest­ed and extra­dit­ed to the Unit­ed States, al-Kas­sar has been involved in weapons deal­ing, drug traf­fick­ing and ter­ror­ism on behalf of the intel­li­gence ser­vices of numer­ous coun­tries, includ­ing Amer­i­ca’s. A major play­er in the Iran/Contra scan­dal, al-Kas­sar has long oper­at­ed in con­junc­tion with the Under­ground Reich. Among the most impor­tant sto­ries updat­ed by Mr. Emory is the rev­e­la­tion that the dis­ap­pear­ance of the hon­ey­bees so essen­tial to agri­cul­ture may be due to a pes­ti­cide mar­ket­ed by Bay­er Crop­Science. Antic­i­pat­ing sub­ject mate­r­i­al pre­sent­ed in FTR#639, the pro­gram notes the devel­op­ment by a Flori­da pro­fes­sor of a rev­o­lu­tion­ary type of fly­ing saucer, sim­i­lar to those depict­ed in sci­ence fic­tion movies.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Review of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work’s con­trol of the major Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions; the unseal­ing (after 60 years) of an archive of Third Reich doc­u­ments; Rock­e­feller descen­dants’ attempts to get Exxon­Mo­bil to switch empha­sis from oil to renew­able ener­gy sources; review of the piv­otal role of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work and the Under­ground Reich in the Stan­dard Oil cor­po­rate com­plex; dis­cus­sion of the impact of vio­lence in the Mus­lim world on glob­al oil prices.

1. Begin­ning with the sub­ject of the assas­si­na­tion of Robert F. Kennedy, the pro­gram notes that the offi­cial ver­sion of the killing remains fun­da­men­tal­ly inad­e­quate. Mr. Emory syn­op­sizes some of the key aspects of the phys­i­cal evi­dence and polit­i­cal evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries lead­ing in the direc­tion of the cor­ri­dors of pow­er, as well as in the direc­tion of Amer­i­ca’s oth­er polit­i­cal assas­si­na­tions. For more about the assas­si­na­tion of Robert F. Kennedy, see-among oth­er pro­grams-FTR#582, as well as AFA#9, avail­able from Spit­fire. ” . . . ‘The inter­est­ing thing is how under-exam­ined the Robert Kennedy assas­si­na­tion is, com­pared to Pres­i­dent Kennedy and Mar­tin Luther King Jr., said David Tal­bot of San Fran­cis­co, author of ‘Broth­ers,’ a book that looks into Robert Kennedy’s own inves­ti­ga­tion into his broth­er’s death and his con­vic­tion that JFK was the vic­tim of a con­spir­a­cy. ‘Bob­by remains the unknown ter­ri­to­ry,’ Tal­bot said. ‘But even if you look at it min­i­mal­ly, there are ques­tions that come to mind.’ . . .”

(“40 Years after Assas­si­na­tion, Ques­tions Per­sist” by Michael Tay­lor; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 6/3/2008; pp. A1-A9.)

2. Revis­it­ing a con­tro­ver­sial sub­ject cov­ered at length and detail by Mr. Emory over the years, the broad­cast sets forth the lat­est devel­op­ments in the O.J. Simp­son case. As Amer­i­ca fields its first African/American major par­ty pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, O.J. is back in the news, not only because of his recent arrest while attempt­ing to recov­er sports mem­o­ra­bil­ia stolen from him, but because of the pub­li­ca­tion of a book enti­tled If I Did It. Not­ing the polit­i­cal con­text sur­round­ing the book’s pub­li­ca­tion, Mr. Emory observed that the book was pub­lished by a sub­sidiary of Rup­pert Mur­doch’s News­Corp. That com­pa­ny was head­ed by the lover of Bernard Kerik, the for­mer NYPD offi­cial select­ed by George Bush to be the first direc­tor of the Office of Home­land Secu­ri­ty. Kerik has been indict­ed for alleged wrong­do­ing. Oth­er sup­ple­men­tal dis­cus­sion cen­tered on the dis­turb­ing body of evi­dence impli­cat­ing detec­tive Mark Fuhrman in the mur­der. (For more about this, see FTRs 39, 40. See also OJ Simp­son, Steven Worth, Stephen Sin­gu­lar and Don­ald Freed.) “Fed­er­al Agents learned three weeks in advance that O.J. Simp­son and a mem­o­ra­bil­ia deal­er planned an oper­a­tion to retrieve per­son­al items Simp­son said were stolen from him, accord­ing to FBI reports obtained Fri­day by the Asso­ci­at­ed Press. . .”

(“FBI Knew of O.J. Simp­son Plan in Advance” by Lin­da Deutsch and Ken Rit­ter; Asso­ci­at­ed Press; 11/3/2007.)

3. One of the many fas­ci­nat­ing side­lights to the case con­cerns the “sports mem­o­ra­bil­ia angle,” to coin a term. The event that led to O.J.‘s arrest. [about which the FBI had fore­knowl­edge for weeks] involved the recov­ery of sports mem­o­ra­bil­ia that were [alleged­ly] stolen from O.J.‘s home! Who stole them, when and how? Mr. Emory not­ed that a well-known Bay Area talk show host-the late Duane Gar­rett of KGO-AM in San Fran­cis­co-was a sports mem­o­ra­bil­ia deal­er, as well as a long-time Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty activist. Rough­ly a week after the mur­ders of Nicole Brown Simp­son and Ron Gold­man, Gar­ret alleged on his pro­gram that Eddie De Bar­to­lo, Jr. [then own­er of the San Fran­cis­co 49’ers] offered O.J. mil­lions of dol­lars to become the first African/American NFL fran­chise own­er. Accord­ing to Gar­rett, O.J. declined because of De Bar­tolo’s alleged orga­nized crime con­nec­tions. Short­ly after­ward, Gar­rett began receiv­ing death threats and then went off the Gold­en Gate Bridge rough­ly a year lat­er-an alleged sui­cide. (For more about orga­nized crime and the NFL-includ­ing alle­ga­tions of De Bar­to­lo mob con­nec­tions, see FTR#304.) ” . . .‘The guy flat-out told me he had items stolen from O.J.‘s house,’ Ric­cio told the AP. ‘I have a legit­i­mate busi­ness. . . .” (Idem.)

4. As the coun­try gears up for the first pres­i­den­tial cam­paign fea­tur­ing a major par­ty African-Amer­i­can can­di­date; there are con­cerns that the white suprema­cist com­mu­ni­ty may be cook­ing up some­thing big. What did the fel­low dis­cussed in this sto­ry have in mind?The FBI claims a Texas man told an infor­mant he had a 25-gal­lon drum with enough cyanide inside to ‘kill a city.’ . . .”

(“No Clear Ter­ror Threat in Texas Cyanide Case” by Jeff Latzke; Asso­ci­at­ed Press; 5/15/2008.)

5. A Las Vegas man has been charged in con­nec­tion with pos­ses­sion of the dead­ly tox­in ricin. As dis­cussed in FTR#631, media reports of Mr. [Von] Bergen­dorf­f’s ricin-con­nect­ed activ­i­ties referred to him as “Von”-the pre­fix reserved for titled Ger­man aris­toc­ra­cy. Why the change in the medi­a’s dis­po­si­tion toward this indi­vid­ual? Is he asso­ci­at­ed with the Under­ground Reich?An unem­ployed graph­ic design­er who author­i­ties believe was near­ly killed by ricin was arrest­ed Wednes­day on fed­er­al charges that he pos­sessed the dead­ly tox­in as part of an ‘exot­ic idea,’ nev­er car­ried out, to poi­son his ene­mies. Roger [Von] Bergen­dorff, who author­i­ties allege began mak­ing ricin a decade ago, was arrest­ed upon his release from the hos­pi­tal where he had been treat­ed since Feb. 14. . . .”

(“Man Sick­ened by Ricin Is Arrest­ed” [AP]; MSNBC.com; 4/16/2008.)

6. Next, the broad­cast revis­its a sub­ject Mr. Emory has cov­ered over a peri­od of decades. In-among oth­er pro­grams–AFA#‘s 19, 22, as well as FTR#‘s 265, 284, Mr. Emory high­light­ed Colo­nia Dig­nidad or “The Colony,” as it is known. Found­ed by an Under­ground Reich-asso­ci­at­ed Luft­waffe vet­er­an named Paul Schae­fer, the com­pound has served as a polit­i­cal prison for oppo­nents of Chilean dic­ta­tor Augus­to Pinochet, a hid­ing place for Nazi war crim­i­nals and a com­mu­ni­ca­tions cen­ter for Oper­a­tion Con­dor. (Oper­a­tion Con­dor was an assas­si­na­tion cabal con­coct­ed by a con­sor­tium of Latin Amer­i­can mil­i­tary dic­ta­tor­ships and assist­ed by ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence.) Nat­u­ral­ized cit­i­zen Boris Weis­feil­er dis­ap­peared in Chile in 1985, report­ed­ly held pris­on­er at Colo­nia Dig­nidad and exe­cut­ed there. Inves­ti­ga­tions into his dis­ap­pear­ance have been stymied in part by intran­si­gence on the part of ele­ments of the Amer­i­can bureau­cra­cy, as well as delib­er­ate obfus­ca­tion by the Chilean gov­ern­ment. Anoth­er fac­tor inhibit­ing the inves­ti­ga­tion is the eco­nom­ic clout mus­tered by the Colony’s sup­port­ers in Ger­many and Chile. The fol­low­ing state­ment by the Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al in Chile seems to allude to the con­sum­mate eco­nom­ic clout of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, the eco­nom­ic com­po­nent of the Under­ground Reich! (For more about this sub­ject, see-among oth­er pro­grams-FTR#‘s 305 and 604, as well as the book Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile avail­able for down­load for free on the Spit­fire web­site.) ” . . . Amnesty Inter­na­tion­al’s Chile Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Ser­gio Lau­ren­ti attrib­ut­es gov­ern­ment inac­tion on the Weis­feil­er case to fear of Schae­fer­’s polit­i­cal con­nec­tions. ‘There is a lack of inter­est among Chilean author­i­ties in car­ry­ing out a thor­ough inves­ti­ga­tion,’ said Lau­ren­ti. ‘Schae­fer him­self had a ring of pro­tec­tion for years. Schae­fer and his asso­ciates have eco­nom­ic pow­er both in Ger­many and in Chile.’ . . .”

(“Sis­ter Hopes for Answers from Chile” by Matthew Mali­nows­ki; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 6/12/2008; p. A10.)

7. Yet anoth­er sub­ject Mr. Emory has researched for decades is arms deal­er and drug-traf­fick­er Monz­er al-Kas­sar. Deeply involved with the Iran/Contra scan­dal, al-Kas­sar has been involved with drug traf­fick­ing and ter­ror­ism, includ­ing the Achille Lau­ro hijack­ing, the bomb­ing of Pan Am 103 and the AMIA bomb­ing in Argenti­na. (Among the many pro­grams in which al-Kas­sar is dis­cussed are: AFA#‘s 32, 35, 38, as well as FTR#‘s 5, 29, 109.) Al-Kas­sar has recent­ly been arrest­ed and extra­dit­ed to the Unit­ed States. ” . . . His name is Monz­er al-Kas­sar, and he had recent­ly come off a flight from Europe, fol­lowed by a 40-minute heli­copter from Westch­ester jaunt from Westch­ester Coun­ty Air­port. . . .”

(“An Arms Deal­er in Shack­les, Deliv­ered to New York” by Alan Fish­er; New York Times; 6/14/2008; p. A17.)

8. Reflect­ing William Faulkn­er’s obser­va­tion that, “the past is nev­er dead and buried, it isn’t even past,” the broad­cast high­lights the recent unseal­ing of a Ger­man archive of Third Reich doc­u­ments. It remains to be seen what tran­spires of this event. One inter­est­ing aspect of this con­cerns why it took so long to declas­si­fy these archives? “After more than 60 years, Nazi doc­u­ments stored in a vast ware­house in Ger­many wee unsealed Wednes­day, open­ing a rich resource for Holo­caust his­to­ri­ans and for sur­vivors to delve into their own tor­ment­ed past. The doc­u­ments could open new avenues of study into the inner work­ings of Nazi per­se­cu­tion from the exploita­tion of slave labor to the con­duct of med­ical exper­i­ments. . . .”

(“Vast Archive of Nazi Data Is Unsealed after 60 Years” by Arthur Max; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 11/29/2007; p. A15.)

9. Under­scor­ing a sub­ject cov­ered by Mr. Emory in FTR#‘s 560, 561, the dis­cus­sion notes how tur­bu­lence in the Mus­lim world affects oil prices. The real sto­ry with regard to the war­fare in the Mid­dle East is the increase in petro­le­um price and the result­ing prof­it to the oil com­pa­nies and the oil-pro­duc­ing coun­tries. “Benazir Bhut­to’s assas­si­na­tion and fight­ing in north­ern Iraq might soon have a direct effect on your wal­let. Both have helped push oil prices back up to near-record highs this week, reach­ing more than $96 per bar­rel. And gaso­line prices are fol­low­ing suit, ris­ing in the last few days after a month of declines. . . .”

(“World Events Influ­ence What We Pay” by David R. Bak­er; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 12/29/2007; pp. C1-C2.)

10. A sign of the times is the fact that the descen­dants of the Rock­e­fellers are urg­ing Exxon­Mo­bil to look past oil and embrace green tech­nolo­gies. As dis­cussed in-among oth­er pro­grams–FTR#305, the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work has as much influ­ence in the Stan­dard Oil com­pa­nies as the Rock­e­feller fam­i­ly. Does the diver­gence of opin­ion between the MobilExxon man­age­ment and the Rock­e­feller descen­dants stem from this phe­nom­e­non? Do the Rock­e­feller kin seek to align the com­pa­ny with the eco­log­i­cal imper­a­tives of the future of the plan­et and civ­i­liza­tion itself while the Under­ground Reich seeks to swell its cof­fers and enslave human­i­ty with the prospect of a petro­le­um-scarci­ty apoc­a­lypse? (For more about the fas­cist “Peak Oil” phi­los­o­phy and its fascis­tic log­i­cal cor­re­lates, see FTR#‘s 506, 534.) “Mem­bers of the Rock­e­feller fam­i­ly, descend­ed from the founder of what became Exxon Mobil Corp., chal­lenged the oil giant Wednes­day to focus more on renew­able sources of ener­gy. . . .”

(“Think Past Oil, Rock­e­feller Kin Tell Exxon;” MSNBC.Com; 4/30/2008.)

11. Fol­low­ing up an inquiry made in FTR#591, the pro­gram notes that Bay­er Crop­Science is with­draw­ing a pes­ti­cide blamed for the deaths of hon­ey­bees. As dis­cussed in-among oth­er pro­grams–FTR#305, the major Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions are under the con­trol of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work. (FTR#576 doc­u­ments the rela­tion­ship of the I.G. Far­ben cor­po­rate com­plex to the Third Reich and its Under­ground com­po­nent. Bay­er is a key com­pa­ny of the old I.G. car­tel.) In FTR#591, we not­ed that Bay­er Crop­Science devel­oped a type of genet­i­cal­ly engi­neered rice that has seri­ous­ly dam­aged the for­tunes of Amer­i­can rice farm­ers. In that pro­gram, Mr. Emory not­ed the dis­ap­pear­ance of bee colonies-essen­tial for pol­li­nat­ing crops-and won­dered aloud if Bay­er Crop­Science might have some­thing to do with that dis­ap­pear­ance. Indeed!Ger­many has banned a fam­i­ly of pes­ti­cides that are blamed for the deaths of mil­lions of hon­ey­bees. . . . The chem­i­cal, pro­duced by Bay­er Crop­Science, a sub­sidiary of the Ger­man chem­i­cal giant Bay­er, is sold in Europe under the trade name Pon­cho. . . .”

(“Pes­ti­cides: Ger­many Bans Chem­i­cals Linked to Hon­ey­bee Dev­as­ta­tion” by Alli­son Ben­jamin; The Guardian; 5/23/2008.)

12. Sup­ple­ment­ing infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in FTR#588, the broad­cast notes that a sci­en­tist has designed a pro­to­type of a sophis­ti­cat­ed elec­tri­cal fly­ing saucer. As dis­cussed in that pro­gram, there are firm indi­ca­tions that UFO’s are real, but do not come from “out­er space” and are not pilot­ed by “aliens.” Is pro­fes­sor Roy’s dis­cov­ery actu­al­ly the first appear­ance of this type of tech­nol­o­gy, or has it been devel­oped before? (For more about UFO’s and the ET myth, see-among oth­er pro­grams-FTR#‘s 66, 67, 68, 105, 170, 639. Be sure to lis­ten to the two lec­tures avail­able for down­load for free on the Spit­fire website-“The Polit­i­cal Impli­ca­tions of the UFO Phe­nom­e­non and the ET Myth” and “The Future: Tech­nol­o­gy, Theoc­ra­cy and the Under­ground Reich.”) “Fly­ing saucers may soon be more fact than mere sci­ence fic­tion. Uni­ver­si­ty of Flori­da mechan­i­cal and aero­space engi­neer­ing asso­ciate pro­fes­sor Sub­ra­ta Roy has sub­mit­ted a patent appli­ca­tion for a cir­cu­lar, spin­ning air­craft design rem­i­nis­cent of the space­ships seen in count­less Hol­ly­wood films. Roy, how­ev­er, calls his design a ‘wing­less elec­tro­mag­net­ic air vehi­cle or WEAV. . . .”
