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. . . .”
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!”
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. . . .”
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.. . .”
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.
“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.are beheading and burning their way through
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 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, potentially giving insurgents more space to maneuver along the Afghan frontier. . . .”activity in northwest Pakistan also comes as the country shifts forces east to the Indian border because of tensions over last month’s
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. . . .”
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. (“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 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.had threatened him and his wife, Heather. VR’s attorney, , notified the
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.
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.
