FTR #659 Heatin’ It Up for Obama

MP3: Side 1 | Side 2

With a new Pres­i­dent about to take office, this broad­cast high­lights mul­ti­ple (and esca­lat­ing) crises with which he must deal. The avail­able evi­dence sug­gests that his ene­mies in the Under­ground Reich are delib­er­ate­ly heat­ing things up for him, and this pro­gram sets forth analy­sis of who is doing this and how they are doing it. Deriv­a­tive of the car­tel sys­tem put in place at the end of the First World War, the Third Reich drew sus­te­nance from those eco­nom­ic rela­tion­ships to go under­ground at the end of the Sec­ond World War and per­pet­u­ate itself in Mafia-like style through a glob­al mon­ey machine that (today) stands astride the world’s econ­o­my. This pro­gram iden­ti­fies the pieces of the jig­saw puz­zle that the Under­ground Reich has assem­bled to sub­vert and destroy the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and the Unit­ed States.

Cen­tral to an under­stand­ing of this analy­sis is the con­cept of the “vir­tu­al state,” advanced by pro­fes­sor Philip Bob­bitt of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas. A func­tion­ing state in all sens­es of the word, the vir­tu­al state is unique in that it has no for­mal geo­graph­i­cal bound­aries, but exists in var­i­ous coun­tries and envi­ron­ments around the world. In his book The Shield of Achilles, Bob­bitt coined the term to char­ac­ter­ize al-Qae­da. The con­cept applies per­fect­ly to the Under­ground Reich. Through­out the pro­gram, the ele­ments of the vir­tu­al state of the Under­ground Reich are seen to be act­ing against the inter­ests of the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion and for the geopo­lit­i­cal strate­gies of the Under­ground Reich, uti­liz­ing polit­i­cal fronts around the world and pow­er­ful cor­po­rate inter­ests con­trol­ling the opin­ion-form­ing media.

Begin­ning with review of the Hamas char­ter, the broad­cast high­lights the explic­it­ly Nazi char­ac­ter of this orga­ni­za­tion. The Mus­lim Broth­er­hood is one of the piv­otal ele­ments of the “vir­tu­al state” that is the Under­ground Reich. Al-Qae­da, too, is deriv­a­tive of the Broth­er­hood. The Broth­er­hood’s oper­a­tions in the Mid­dle East and South Asia con­sti­tute two of the ele­ments heatin’ it up for Oba­ma. In addi­tion, Broth­er­hood and Under­ground Reich media ele­ments main­tain the ele­vat­ed tem­per­a­ture. Among the fac­tors influ­enc­ing the Israeli deci­sion to act against Hamas is the pop­u­lar effect on the Israeli pub­lic of the mur­der of two Ortho­dox Jews in the Mum­bai mas­sacre and the emo­tion­al impact of the nation-wide broad­cast of their orphaned tod­dler’s tears for his mur­dered par­ents. As fore­cast in FTR 657, the Mum­bai inci­dent height­ened ten­sions between Pak­istan and India, caus­ing Pak­istan to rede­ploy sig­nif­i­cant num­bers of troops away from the trib­al areas adja­cent to Afghanistan. This has great­ly enabled the Tal­iban and weak­ened the posi­tion of the incom­ing Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion, whose expressed intent on shoring up the war effort in Afghanistan was denounced by al-Qaeda’s Ayman al-Zawahiri. Do not lose sight of the fact that the Mum­bai attacks were per­pe­trat­ed by a Mus­lim Broth­er­hood affil­i­ate, the Lashkar-e-Tai­ba.

Not­ing the pri­ma­cy of the Under­ground Reich in the GOP, even as Oba­ma is prepar­ing to assume office, the Bush admin­is­tra­tion has con­clud­ed a secu­ri­ty treaty with Geor­gia, mod­eled on one recent­ly con­clud­ed with the Ukraine, whose pres­i­dent is cozy with the descen­dants of the fas­cist OUN/B.[1. To approach this com­pli­cat­ed sub­ject, For The Record pro­grams 529 and 647 may be help­ful to new­er lis­ten­ers. Anti-fas­cist Archives 36 and 37 go into his­tor­i­cal and polit­i­cal dynam­ics at great length.] With added pres­sure on its south­ern and west­ern flanks, Rus­sia fig­ures to shore up its mil­i­tary cor­re­spon­dents and client states such as Iran and Syr­ia in the South, there­by heatin’ it up for Oba­ma still fur­ther in the Mid­dle East.

Here at home, the ther­mo­stat is being turned up on Oba­ma as well. After dis­cussing the sus­pi­cious death of a key GOP oper­a­tive with infor­ma­tion about elec­toral theft and (pos­si­bly) the McCain cam­paign’s com­mu­ni­ca­tion with Geor­gian per­son­nel in the run-up to last sum­mer’s war with Rus­sia, the pro­gram notes that Karl Rove is ratch­et­ing up dis­cus­sion of the Blago­je­vich con­nec­tions to the slum­lord milieu to which Oba­ma belonged in Chica­go. (He’s been doing that, recent­ly, on Fox News, whose sec­ond largest stock­hold­er is Prince Alwaleed of Sau­di Ara­bia, who does fund rais­ing telethons for Hamas in his native coun­try.) As not­ed in FTR 654, Rove is linked to the same slum­lord milieu that brack­ets Oba­ma and Blago­je­vich. Last, but cer­tain­ly not least, in the fac­tors heatin’ it up for Oba­ma is the econ­o­my. A report from the Fed­er­al Reserve Bank of Mineapo­lis indi­cates that a num­ber of report­ed aspects of the finan­cial cri­sis are mytho­log­i­cal. Is the finan­cial cri­sis a delib­er­ate attempt by Under­ground Reich to weak­en and/or destroy Amer­i­ca? Is it a delib­er­ate attempt by the GOP “move­ment con­ser­v­a­tives” to force the elim­i­na­tion of social pro­grams to which they are opposed?

Pro­gram High­lights Include: The sus­pi­cious death of a Bay Area pro-Israel activist in the run-up to the lat­est Mid­dle East war; review of Arab/Muslim Broth­er­hood and Nazi con­trol of the major media; deceased GOP oper­a­tive Michael Con­nel­l’s state­ment that he feared for his life and that he had been specif­i­cal­ly threat­ened by Karl Rove; the fact that the bailout of the finan­cial insti­tu­tions equals 60 per­cent of GDP; the height­ened ten­sions between Rus­sia and Ukraine over the lat­ter’s attempts at join­ing NATO.

1. Begin­ning with review of the Hamas char­ter, the broad­cast high­lights the explic­it­ly Nazi char­ac­ter of this orga­ni­za­tion.

” . . . Hamas, whose char­ter calls for the Jew­ish state’s destruc­tion, is urg­ing a cam­paign of sui­cide bomb­ings in Israel. . . .”

“Pales­tini­ans , Israelis Bit­ter over Civil­ian Toll” by Richard Boudreaux and Ahmed Burai [Los Ange­les Times]; San Jose Mer­cury News; 12/30/2008; pp. 1A-9A.)

2. Illus­trat­ing the fas­cist nature of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and its Pales­tin­ian off­shoot Hamas–the anti-Semi­tism expressed here has def­i­nite Euro­pean fas­cist over­tones. Note the ref­er­ences to the Jews being behind all wars and rev­o­lu­tions, con­trol­ling finance and media and the ref­er­ences to “Jew­ish con­trol” or gen­e­sis of the Freema­sons, the Rotary Club, etc. This is straight Nazi/fascist ide­ol­o­gy. Note also the ref­er­ences to the Pro­to­cols of the Elders of Zion.

“ . . . For our strug­gle against the Jews is extreme­ly wide-rang­ing and grave, so much so that it will need all the loy­al efforts we can wield, to be fol­lowed by fur­ther steps and rein­forced by suc­ces­sive bat­tal­ions from the mul­ti­far­i­ous Arab and Islam­ic world, until the ene­mies are defeat­ed and Allah’s vic­to­ry pre­vails. …The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Mus­lims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Mus­lim! There is a Jew hid­ing behind me, come on and kill him!”

(“The Hamas, MI6, BBC Axis” by Melanie Phillips; Melanie Phillips’ Diary; 6/18/2007.)

3. In typ­i­cal fascist/Nazi style, they blame the World Wars and com­mu­nism on “the Jews”!

“The ene­mies have been schem­ing for a long time, and they have con­sol­i­dat­ed their schemes, in order to achieve what they have achieved. They took advan­tage of key ele­ments in unfold­ing events, and accu­mu­lat­ed a huge and influ­en­tial mate­r­i­al wealth which they put to the ser­vice of imple­ment­ing their dream. This wealth [per­mit­ted them to] take over con­trol of the world media such as news agen­cies, the press, pub­li­ca­tion hous­es, broad­cast­ing and the like. [They also used this] wealth to stir rev­o­lu­tions in var­i­ous parts of the globe in order to ful­fill their inter­ests and pick the fruits. They stood behind the French and the Com­mu­nist Rev­o­lu­tions and behind most of the rev­o­lu­tions we hear about here and there.”


4. Note the ref­er­ence to the Pro­to­cols of the Elders of Zion and the asser­tion that the Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, etc., were “Zion­ist” orga­ni­za­tions. This is pure, unadul­ter­at­ed Nazi dog­ma.

“They also used the mon­ey to estab­lish clan­des­tine orga­ni­za­tions which are spread­ing around the world, in order to destroy soci­eties and car­ry out Zion­ist inter­ests. Such orga­ni­za­tions are: the Freema­sons, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, B’nai B’rith and the like. All of them are destruc­tive spy­ing orga­ni­za­tions. They also used the mon­ey to take over con­trol of the Impe­ri­al­ist states and made them col­o­nize many coun­tries in order to exploit the wealth of those coun­tries and spread their cor­rup­tion there­in. As regards local and world wars, it has come to pass and no one objects, that they stood behind World War I, so as to wipe out the Islam­ic Caliphate. They col­lect­ed mate­r­i­al gains and took con­trol of many sources of wealth. They obtained the Bal­four Dec­la­ra­tion and estab­lished the League of Nations in order to rule the world by means of that orga­ni­za­tion. They also stood behind World War II, where they col­lect­ed immense ben­e­fits from trad­ing with war mate­ri­als and pre­pared for the estab­lish­ment of their state. They inspired the estab­lish­ment of the Unit­ed Nations and the Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil to replace the League of Nations, in order to rule the world by their inter­me­di­ary. There was no war that broke out any­where with­out their fin­ger­prints on it…Their scheme has been laid out in the Pro­to­cols of the Elders of Zion, and their present [con­duct] is the best proof of what is said there… With­in the cir­cle of the con­flict with world Zion­ism, the Hamas regards itself the spear­head and the avant-garde. It joins its efforts to all those who are active on the Pales­tin­ian scene, but more steps need to be tak­en by the Arab and Islam­ic peo­ples and Islam­ic asso­ci­a­tions through­out the Arab and Islam­ic world in order to make pos­si­ble the next round with the Jews, the mer­chants of war. . . .”


5. In the run-up to the cur­rent round of hos­til­i­ties, a Bay Area activist on behalf of Israel died in high­ly sus­pi­cious fash­ion.

“It was a bizarre and abrupt way to die for a man who, by all accounts, went at life full-bore and was fit and agile from rid­ing his bicy­cle every­where he went.

But as San Fran­cis­co police combed over the evi­dence Tues­day, inves­ti­ga­tors said this is what appears to have hap­pened: Dr. Daniel J. Kli­man, an Alame­da physi­cian and one of the Bay Area’s fore­most pro-Israel activists, stepped into an open ele­va­tor shaft by acci­dent last week and died.

His body was found Mon­day by work­ers inspect­ing an ele­va­tor in the his­toric, nine-sto­ry Sharon Build­ing at 55 New Mont­gomery St., where Kli­man appar­ent­ly plunged to his death Nov. 25. As news of the dis­cov­ery fil­tered out Tues­day, his sup­port­ers and friends were in near dis­be­lief that some­one so dynam­ic could be gone. . . . Kli­man, 38, lived near the tem­ple in Oak­land and was per­haps best known as co-founder of S.F. Voice for Israel, a 4‑year-old orga­ni­za­tion that vocif­er­ous­ly demon­strates on behalf of Israeli caus­es. He also main­tained a prac­tice in Alame­da as a doc­tor of inter­nal med­i­cine and was an ardent pro­po­nent of veg­e­tar­i­an­ism and alter­na­tive trans­porta­tion to cars.

He had been tak­ing Ara­bic lan­guage cours­es in the Sharon Build­ing for three years and was last seen, inves­ti­ga­tors said, on the night of Nov. 25, when he went there to attend a class on the sev­enth floor.

Police Inspec­tor Matt Krim­sky said Kli­man appar­ent­ly fell through an open ele­va­tor door on the sev­enth floor, although the build­ing’s man­ag­er insists the door must have been secured.

The ele­va­tor in that shaft was out of order at the time, build­ing man­ag­er Brad Bern­heim said. By design, doors to a mal­func­tion­ing ele­va­tor are clamped shut and can be opened only by a mechan­ic, said Eri­ka Mon­ter­roza, spokes­woman for Cal/OSHA.

The details of how Kli­man wound up in the shaft are being inves­ti­gat­ed by police and Cal/OSHA. Some in Kli­man’s activist com­mu­ni­ty won­dered Tues­day if he had been killed by some­one he loud­ly opposed in street demon­stra­tions over the years, but Krim­sky called that pos­si­bil­i­ty ‘beyond remote.’

‘There is no indi­ca­tion of any foul play at this point, even though I’ve been get­ting calls from con­spir­a­cy the­o­rists from every­where, even some­one who said they had infor­ma­tion from a seance,’ Krim­sky said. Faith Meltzer, a mem­ber of S.F. Voice for Israel, said she will push police to inves­ti­gate the mat­ter until all chance of homi­cide is elim­i­nat­ed.


‘It’s hard for me to believe this was­n’t delib­er­ate,’ Meltzer said. . . .”

“Israel Activist’s Mys­te­ri­ous Fall in Ele­va­tor Shaft” by Kevin Fagan; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 12/3/2008; pp. A1-A10.

6. Among the fac­tors influ­enc­ing the Israeli deci­sion to act against Hamas is the pop­u­lar effect on the Israeli pub­lic of the mur­der of two Ortho­dox Jews in the Mum­bai mas­sacre and the emo­tion­al impact of their orphaned tod­dler’s tears.

“The cries of lit­tle Moshe Holtzberg wound­ed hearts Mon­day at a tear­ful memo­r­i­al for his par­ents in India. ‘Mom­my, mom­my, mom­my!’ he wailed, clutch­ing a toy bas­ket­ball while squirm­ing in the arms of mourn­ers at the Mum­bai syn­a­gogue. Then the tod­dler and the care­tak­er who res­cued him dur­ing the ter­ror­ist attacks board­ed a jet along with the bod­ies of his par­ents and four oth­er Jews slain at the Chabad House to fly to Israel–a place the curly haired 2‑year-old had nev­er seen. The wrench­ing scene at the ser­vice played over and over again on Israeli tele­vi­sion as gov­ern­ment offi­cials, Chabad lead­ers and rel­a­tives pre­pared for the funer­als of the vic­tims and the future of the orphaned Moshe. . . . Moshe was spir­it­ed out of Chabad House on Thurs­day by San­dra Samuel, a nan­ny who had worked at the cen­ter for years. She found him cry­ing beside his par­ents’ bod­ies, his pants drenched in blood. . . .”

7. Ana­lyz­ing the Mum­bai inci­dent, it becomes increas­ing­ly clear that there was com­plic­i­ty by ele­ments in Pak­istan.

“New Del­hi: As Islam­abad con­tin­ues to be in denial mode, India is com­pil­ing evi­dence about the role of Pak­istan-based ele­ments in the ter­ror strikes for shar­ing it with the world besides the neigh­bour very soon.

The evi­dence, being put togeth­er, includes the con­fes­sion of the lone ter­ror­ist held in Mum­bai ter­ror attack Ajmal Amir Qasab, log­book recov­ered from the ves­sel in which the 10 ter­ror­ists came from Karachi, records of satel­lite phone used by the attack­ers and tran­script of con­ver­sa­tions between the attack­ers and their han­dlers in Pak­istan, the sources said.. . .”

“India Com­pil­ing Evi­dence to Share with Pak, Rest of World” [Press Trust of India]; NDTV.com; 1/3/2009.

8. As fore­cast­ed, the Mum­bai inci­dent height­ened ten­sions between Pak­istan and India, caus­ing Pak­istan to rede­ploy sig­nif­i­cant num­bers of troops away from the trib­al areas adja­cent to Afghanistan. This has great­ly enabled the Tal­iban.

Tal­iban mil­i­tants are behead­ing and burn­ing their way through Pak­istan’s pic­turesque Swat Val­ley, and res­i­dents say the insur­gents now con­trol most of the moun­tain­ous region far from the law­less trib­al areas where jihadists thrive.

The dete­ri­o­rat­ing sit­u­a­tion in the for­mer tourist haven comes despite an army offen­sive that began in 2007 and an attempt­ed peace deal. It is espe­cial­ly wor­ri­some to Pak­istani offi­cials because the val­ley lies out­side the areas where al-Qai­da and Tal­iban mil­i­tants have tra­di­tion­al­ly oper­at­ed and where the mil­i­tary is stag­ing a sep­a­rate offen­sive.

‘You can’t imag­ine how bad it is,’ said Muzaf­far ul-Mulk, a fed­er­al law­mak­er whose home in Swat was attacked by bomb-tot­ing assailants in mid-Decem­ber, weeks after he left. ‘It’s worse day by day.’

The Tal­iban activ­i­ty in north­west Pak­istan also comes as the coun­try shifts forces east to the Indi­an bor­der because of ten­sions over last mon­th’s ter­ror­ist attacks in Mum­bai, poten­tial­ly giv­ing insur­gents more space to maneu­ver along the Afghan fron­tier. . . .”

9. While the Mid­dle East is explod­ing while Oba­ma waits in the wings, the Bush admin­is­tra­tion is attempt­ing to fur­ther bul­ly Rus­sia by con­clud­ing a secu­ri­ty arrange­ment with Geor­gia, its hos­tile neigh­bor to the South. (Note that this type of pres­sure will almost cer­tain­ly heat things up in the Mid­dle East, where Rus­sia will attempt to re-arm and strength­en ele­ments such as Hezbol­lah and Hamas, benefic­di­aries of Russ­ian weapon­ry.)

“Months after Geor­gia fought a short, nasty war with its north­ern neigh­bor, the Unit­ed States is mov­ing to shore up secu­ri­ty ties with the for­mer Sovi­et Repub­lic. Agence France-Presse reports that Geor­gian offi­cials will sign a “strate­gic part­ner­ship” treaty on Jan. 4 in Wash­ing­ton. On Tues­day, the Depart­ment of State issued the first con­fir­ma­tion that the Unit­ed States and Geor­gia would pur­sue a more for­mal secu­ri­ty arrange­ment. In a response to ques­tions from reporters, State issued the fol­low­ing news release: ‘As Pres­i­dent [Mikheil] Saakashvili not­ed to the press on Decem­ber 22, the Unit­ed States and Geor­gia are dis­cussing the text of a new bilat­er­al char­ter that will out­line our enhanced coop­er­a­tion to help Geor­gia adance secu­ri­ty, demo­c­ra­t­ic, and mar­ket eco­nom­ic reforms to strength­en Geor­gia, bol­ster our part­ner­ship, and deep­en Geor­gia’s Euro-Atlantic inte­gra­tion. This char­ter is sim­i­lar to the one signed by the Unit­ed States and Ukraine on Decem­ber 19 in Wash­ing­ton.’ This item has large­ly gone unre­port­ed in the U.S. media, but it comes as both Moscow and Tbil­isi con­tin­ue the post-war rhetoric. . . .”

“U.S., Geor­gia to Sign Strate­gic Pact” by Nathan Hodge; Dan­ger Room [Wired.com]; 12/26/2008.

10. Not­ing the State Depart­men­t’s recent­ly con­clud­ed arrange­ment with Ukraine, we should not for­get the qua­si-fas­cist nature of the Ukrain­ian regime of Vik­tor Yuschenko, who has restored tdo pow­er the suc­ces­sors to the OUN/B fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that col­lab­o­rat­ed with the SS in the atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted in the Sovi­et Union dur­ing World War II and then jumped to the Gehlen spy orga­ni­za­tion and the CIA after the war. (Yuschenko mar­ried the for­mer Yka­te­ri­na Chu­machenko, the point per­son for the Ukrain­ian fas­cist emi­gre com­mu­ni­ty in the U.S. and in charge of Pres­i­den­tial lia­son dur­ing the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion.) Note the sim­i­lar­i­ty between the anti-Semit­ic rhetoric endorsed by Yuschenko and the screed that is the Hamas char­ter.

A report by the British Helsin­ki Human Rights Group (BHHRG) notes that Vik­tor Yushchenko, the sup­pos­ed­ly ‘pro-West­ern’ ‘demo­c­ra­t­ic’ can­di­date for the Ukrain­ian pres­i­den­cy, defend­ed a large cir­cu­la­tion Ukrain­ian paper that in 2003 pub­lished a bizarre anti-Semit­ic tract claim­ing, among oth­er things, that some 400,000 Jews par­tic­i­pat­ed in the Nazi inva­sion of the Sovi­et Union in 1941. The paper’s edi­tor, Vasi­ly Gruzin, is quot­ed via the Jew­ish Tele­graph Agency as say­ing in defense of his deci­sion to pub­lish the tract, ‘I per­son­al­ly have noth­ing against com­mon Jews, but rather against a small group of Jew­ish oli­garchs who con­trol Ukraine both eco­nom­i­cal­ly and polit­i­cal­ly. I believe the point of Zion­ism today is Jew­ish con­trol of the world, and we see this process at work in Ukraine today.’

The paper, Sil­s­ki visti, which sup­ports the Ukrain­ian ‘oppo­si­tion’ of Vik­tor Yushchenko, was ordered closed by a Ukrain­ian court in Jan­u­ary 2004 fol­low­ing charges brought by the Jew­ish Anti-Fas­cist Com­mit­tee that it was incit­ing eth­nic hatred. An Eng­lish-lan­guage web­site on Ukrain­ian affairs repro­duces a press release dat­ed 29 Jan­u­ary 2004 from the web­site of Vik­tor Yushchenko’s “Our Ukraine” par­ty, in which Yushchenko responds to the court deci­sion as fol­lows: ‘The gov­ern­ment will get more and more upset with truth­ful infor­ma­tion in mass media the clos­er we get to elec­tions and it will not be sur­pris­ing to see increased pres­sure at oth­er oppo­si­tion­al pub­li­ca­tions.’ (Note that the Eng­lish-lan­guage archives cur­rent­ly avail­able on the ‘Our Ukraine’ web­site only go back to July 2004.)The BHHRG report, titled ‘Shad­ow of Anti-Semi­tism over Ukraine’s Dis­put­ed Elec­tion’, also points to links between Yushchenko and the Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ist leader Andry Shk­il, who is quot­ed favor­ably cit­ing Nazi ide­ol­o­gist Wal­ter Darré’s ideas on eugen­ics as well as Mein Kampf.

On Yushchenko’s sup­port for Shk­il, German-Foreign-Policy.com (not an offi­cial site of the Ger­man For­eign Office, but rather a crit­i­cal watch­dog organ) writes [link in Ger­man]: Pre­cise­ly in the west­ern Ukrain­ian city of Lviv, a place where many thou­sands of Jews were mur­dered under the Nazi occu­pa­tion, Yushchenko’s elec­toral alliance sup­port­ed a lead­ing fig­ure of the extreme-right anti-Semit­ic par­ty UNA-UNSO [Ukrain­ian Nation­al Assem­bly-Ukrain­ian Nation­al Self Defense]. The UNA-UNSO counts as mil­i­tant­ly anti-Russ­ian and advo­cates a ‘Ukrain­ian-Ger­man-Span­ish Axis.’ It belongs to the tra­di­tion of Ukrain­ian Nazi-col­lab­o­ra­tors.... The Ukrain­ian Nazi-col­lab­o­ra­tors were mem­bers of the ‘Orga­ni­za­tion of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists’ (OUN(B)). The anti-Semit­ic nation­al­ist block ‘enjoyed the par­tic­u­lar pro­tec­tion of the Ger­man Abwehr’ [‘Blutige Ouvertüre’, Die Zeit, 26/2001]. The Con­gress of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists (KUN) is con­sid­ered the con­tem­po­rary suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tion of the OUN(B). It forms part of the elec­toral alliance of Vik­tor Yushchenko.”

11. Attempts at bul­ly­ing Rus­sia and mov­ing its old arch-ene­mies up to its bor­ders are pre­cip­i­tat­ing coun­ter­mea­sures by Rus­sia. Rus­sia has turned off the nat­ur­al gas spig­ot to the Ukraine and West­ern Europe.

“Fuel deliv­ery to four Euro­pean coun­tries fell below nor­mal Sat­ur­day as Rus­si­a’s state gas monop­oly with­held nat­ur­al gas from neigh­bor­ing Ukraine for the third con­sec­u­tive day. Ukraine warned that its gas pipeline sys­tem could expe­ri­ence “seri­ous dis­rup­tions” if a wors­en­ing price dis­pute isn’t set­tled in 10 to 15 days, threat­en­ing short­falls across Europe in the heart of win­ter. Gas flows to Poland, Roma­nia, Hun­gary and Bul­gar­ia, all of which depend on pipelines that cross Ukraine, slumped on Sat­ur­day, offi­cials said. . . . Ukraine’s pro-West­ern pres­i­dent has enraged Rus­sia by push­ing for NATO mem­ber­ship for the for­mer Sovi­et state.”

12. While the heat is being turned up for Oba­ma, a key Bush admin­is­tra­tion offi­cial died in a mys­te­ri­ous plane crash. His tes­ti­mo­ny in ongo­ing inves­ti­ga­tions might have shed light on the theft of the 2000 and 2004 elec­tions, as well as the destruc­tion of White House e‑mails. The late Michael Con­nell also did all of the McCain cam­paign’s com­put­er work. He may have had infor­ma­tion about the McCain advi­sor and Geor­gia lob­by­ist Randy Sche­une­mann. Note the reports of Con­nell hav­ing been threat­ened by Karl Rove.

“Michael Con­nell, the Bush IT expert who has been direct­ly impli­cat­ed in the rig­ging of George Bush’s 2000 and 2004 elec­tions, was killed last night when his sin­gle engine plane crashed three miles short of the Akron air­port. Vel­vet Rev­o­lu­tion (“VR”), a non-prof­it that has been inves­ti­gat­ing Mr. Con­nel­l’s activ­i­ties for the past two years, can now reveal that a per­son close to Mr. Con­nell has recent­ly been dis­cussing with a VR inves­ti­ga­tor how he can tell all about his work for George Bush. Mr. Con­nell told a close asso­ciate that he was afraid that George Bush and Dick Cheney would “throw [him] under the bus.”

A tip­ster close to the McCain cam­paign dis­closed to VR in July that Mr. Con­nel­l’s life was in jeop­ardy and that Karl Rove had threat­ened him and his wife, Heather. VR’s attor­ney, Cliff Arnebeck, noti­fied the Unit­ed States Attor­ney Gen­er­al , Ohio law enforce­ment and the fed­er­al court about these threats and insist­ed that Mr. Con­nell be placed in pro­tec­tive cus­tody. VR also told a close asso­ciate of Mr. Con­nel­l’s not to fly his plane because of anoth­er tip that the plane could be sab­o­taged. Mr. Con­nell, a very expe­ri­enced pilot, has had to aban­don at least two flights in the past two months because of sus­pi­cious prob­lems with his plane. On Decem­ber 18, 2008, Mr. Con­nell flew to a small air­port out­side of Wash­ing­ton DC to meet some peo­ple. It was on his return flight the next day that he crashed.

On Octo­ber 31, Mr. Con­nell appeared before a fed­er­al judge in Ohio after being sub­poe­naed in a fed­er­al law­suit inves­ti­gat­ing the rig­ging of the 2004 elec­tion under the direc­tion of Karl Rove. The judge ordered Mr. Con­nell to tes­ti­fy under oath at a depo­si­tion on Novem­ber 3rd, the day before the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. Vel­vet Rev­o­lu­tion received con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion that the White House was extreme­ly con­cerned about Mr. Con­nell talk­ing about his ille­gal work for the White House and two Bush/Cheney 04 attor­neys were dis­patched to rep­re­sent him.

An asso­ciate of Mr. Con­nel­l’s told VR that Mr. Con­nell was involved with the destruc­tion of the White House emails and the set­ting up of the off-grid White House email sys­tem.

Mr. Con­nell han­dled all of John McCain’s com­put­er work in the recent pres­i­den­tial cam­paign. VR has received direct evi­dence that the McCain cam­paign kept abreast of the legal devel­op­ments against Mr. Con­nell by read­ing the VR ded­i­cat­ed web­site, www.rovecybergate.com.. . .”

13. While events abroad are heatin’ it up for the Pres­i­dent-elect, the slum­lord milieu dis­cussed in FTR 654 is back on the front burn­er with the atten­tion-gar­ner­ing antics of Illi­nois Gov­er­nor Rod Blago­je­vich.

“. . . In terms of dol­lar amounts of cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions direct­ly from Rezko in Illi­nois, the top four earn­ers were, the now deceased Pres­i­dent of the Cook Coun­ty Board, John Stroger, Blago­je­vich, Chica­go May­or, Richard Daley, and Oba­ma — in that order.

Rezko was the head of Stroger’s cam­paign finance com­mit­tee at the same time that he served on Oba­ma US Sen­ate finance com­mit­tee. . . .”

14. Karl Rove–part of the Rezko/Blagojevich slum­lord milieu dis­cussed in FTR #654 was heatin’ it up for Oba­ma on Fox News. Fox and Rove focused on the Blago­je­vich scan­dal and how it might affect Oba­ma’s admin­is­tra­tion.

“Karl Rove Takes on the Bush Lega­cy and the Chal­lenges Fac­ing Pres­i­dent-elect Oba­ma”; FoxNews.com; 12/28/2008.

15. Con­sum­mat­ing the domes­tic heat on the incom­ing Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion is the enor­mi­ty of the eco­nom­ic cri­sis we are fac­ing. The bailout just enact­ed is rough­ly 60% of GDP!

” . . . The fed­er­al gov­ern­ment com­mit­ted an addi­tion­al $800 bil­lion to two new loan pro­grams on Tues­day, bring­ing its cumu­la­tive com­mit­ment to finan­cial res­cue ini­tia­tives to a stag­ger­ing $8.5 tril­lion, accord­ing to Bloomberg News. That sum rep­re­sents almost 60 per­cent of the nation’s esti­mat­ed gross domes­tic prod­uct. . .”

16. Adding to the stun­ning eco­nom­ic news fac­ing Oba­ma is the fact that, accord­ing to a report by the Fed­er­al Reserve Bank of Min­neapo­lis, much of the ratio­nale for the bailout rests on myth.

One comment for “FTR #659 Heatin’ It Up for Obama”

  1. News reports from Europe are com­ing out about Nazi and KKK train­ing
    camps in Bul­gar­ia, of all the strange places.
    Maybe here’s the expla­na­tion (?):

    Var­i­ous inter­net arti­cles claim that the Bush­es are relat­ed to the
    (orig­i­nal­ly Ger­man) Saxe-Coburg roy­al fam­i­ly, which has long sat on the
    Bel­gian throne and the British throne (where the Saxe-Coburgs now call
    them­selves ‘Wind­sors’ to sound un-Ger­man).
    One arti­cle claims the Pro-Nazi (boy) King of Bul­gar­ia (Axis ally),
    deposed at the end of WW2, is a cousin of the Bush­es, there­fore appar­ent­ly
    known by Prescott... and they made sure he was restored to pow­er as Head
    of State via ‘elec­tions’ in Bul­gar­ia a few years ago.... he lived in Spain
    under the Fran­co regime for a while and then came to the Unit­ed States
    before return­ing to Bul­gar­ia.

    Why else, of all places, would KKK be train­ing in such an
    off-the-beat­en-path coun­try?
    One arti­cle indi­cates that after pri­va­ti­za­tion, many Bul­gar­i­an media
    sources are owned by con­ser­v­a­tive Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions.
    Does it have any­thing to do with the tor­ture camps in East­ern Europe?
