“Danger, Will Robinson!”–Peter Thiel, Robots and the Underground Reich (Be Afraid, Be VERY Afraid!)

Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash dri­ve that can be obtained here. [1] (The flash dri­ve includes the anti-fas­cist books avail­able on this site.)

COMMENT: In our last post [2], we not­ed that, in addi­tion to Peter Thiel [3], the CEO of Palan­tir [4] (Thiel asso­ciate Alex Karp) had Ger­man roots. The avail­able evi­dence sug­gests that they are Under­ground Reich. 

(For new­er users of this web­site, we note that it is impos­si­ble to briefly explain the con­cept of The Under­ground Reich. The very men­tion of such a term will seem like mad­ness to the uni­ti­ti­at­ed. We rec­om­mend that peo­ple read The Nazis Go Under­ground [5], Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile [6], The New Ger­many and the Old Nazis [7], and “The Secret Treaty of Fort Hunt.” [8])

(For the ben­e­fit of younger and/or users of this web­site from for­eign coun­tries, the “Dan­ger Will Robin­son” coun­tries, the ref­er­ence to “Dan­ger, Will Robin­son” is from an unimag­in­ably cheesy sci­ence fic­tion series from late 1950’s-ear­ly 1960’s Amer­i­ca tele­vi­sion called “Lost in Space.” The young Will Robin­son had Rob­by the Robot as a com­pan­ion, who alert­ed the young­ster when threats were at hand. The same Hol­ly­wood robot had been fea­tured in the movie “For­bid­den Plan­et.” Two still scenes from the film are fea­tured in the pic­tures at right.)

A fright­en­ing devel­op­ment con­cerns the devel­op­ment of secu­ri­ty robots by a com­pa­ny cap­i­tal­ized by Peter Thiel and head­ed by Alex Karp!

In addi­tion to the Thiel/Karp Robo­t­eX [9] ven­ture, we note that the Fes­to Cor­po­ra­tion [10] is deeply involved in the devel­op­ment of robots.

We note that the devel­op­ment of robot­ic animals–such as the robot drag­on­fly pefect­ed by Festo–are seen as the next stage of drone/surveillance/attack tech­nol­o­gy.

Fes­to, in turn, over­laps the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft [11], the vehi­cle through which 9/11 hijack­er Mohamed Atta moved to Ger­many and then to the Unit­ed States.

Exam­ine the brief his­to­ry [12] of that orga­ni­za­tion, set forth below. It is impos­si­ble for a knowl­edge­able read­er not to con­clude that the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work [6].

We also reca­pit­u­late an item from FTR #484 [13]. Hero­ic jour­nal­ist Daniel Hop­sick­er was told by agents of the Ger­man BKA (the equiv­a­lent of their FBI) that the Ger­mans with whom Atta was asso­ci­at­ing were the sons and daugh­ters of Ger­man indus­tri­al­ists.

In our many vis­its with Daniel Hop­sick­er, we have exam­ined the many Ger­mans who worked with Mohamed Atta and Rudi Deck­ers in the Huff­man Avi­a­tion milieu in Venice Flori­da.

On the last page of Paul Man­ning’s text [14], he cites an unnamed CIA pilot who “made the run to the Bor­mann ranch in Latin Amer­i­ca.” Might that “run” have gone through Venice Flori­da, a hub of covert oper­a­tions for decades? Might Mohamed Atta, Wolf­gang Bohringer and asso­ciates have been what comes up from the oth­er end of that run?

We also note that, offi­cial dis­claimers to the con­trary notwith­stand­ing, Bor­man­n’s sur­vival and post­war career are not in doubt, as evi­denced by the FBI’s file on Bor­mann, exerpt­ed by Paul Man­ning.

“Robo­t­eX Pri­vate Secu­ri­ty Robots Gets $2.06M Backed by Peter Thiel” by Meghan Kel­ly; venturebeat.com; 3/22/2013. [9]

Robo­t­eX, a Cal­i­for­nia com­pa­ny build­ing robots for “first respon­ders,” has filled $2.06 mil­lion of a desired $5 mil­lion round of fund­ing, accord­ing to a fil­ing with the SEC.

Peter Thiel, along with Robo­t­eX founder Nathan Get­tings and chief exec­u­tive Alexan­der Karp were list­ed in the fil­ing. Though these three are named, the fil­ing cites four investor who are uniden­ti­fied.

Robo­t­eX was found­ed in 2007 and cre­ates robots with­out the use of gov­ern­ment fund­ing. Its line of “Avatar” robots are meant to help with secu­ri­ty, some­times in sit­u­a­tions that could be dan­ger­ous for humans. The web­site lists exam­ples such as serv­ing papers to a dan­ger­ous indi­vid­ual, enter­ing hostage sit­u­a­tion, patrolling, inves­ti­gat­ing sus­pi­cious pack­ages, and more.

The com­pa­ny also has a line of robots for the home and office that offer its own form of rov­ing secu­ri­ty sys­tem. You attach an iOS device to the robot, which you can then remote­ly con­trol to sur­vey the house on your behalf. . . .

“FESTO’S ROBOT DRAGONFLY AN AWESOME MIX OF PREHISTORIC AND FUTURISTIC” by Jason Dor­ri­er; Sin­gu­lar­i­ty Hub; 4/17/2013. [10]

EXCERPT: Ger­man man­u­fac­tur­ing firm Fes­to recent­ly res­ur­rect­ed a Pale­o­zoic drag­on­fly. No, we’re not talk­ing de-extinc­tion or syn­thet­ic biology—this baby’s robot­ic. But at 70 cm (27 in) by 48 cm (19 in), Festo’s Bion­i­cOpter robot drag­on­fly is a futur­is­tic fly­ing machine with more than a touch of the pre­his­toric in it.

Drag­on­flies are clever fliers—they can hov­er, accel­er­ate quick­ly, stop on a dime, glide, and even fly back­wards. As Fes­to notes, “For the first time, there is a mod­el that can mas­ter more flight con­di­tions than a heli­copter, plane and glid­er com­bined.”

Festo’s drag­on­fly is a mar­vel to watch move.

The robot is dri­ven by nine ser­vos, a bat­tery, and an ARM micro­con­troller stowed in a flex­i­ble polyamide and ter­poly­mer struc­ture. The head and tail are moved by pass­ing an elec­tri­cal cur­rent through niti­nol mus­cles. The com­put­er con­trols the fre­quen­cy (15–20 Hz), twist­ing (90 deg), and ampli­tude (50 deg) of its four car­bon fiber and foil wings and, by tak­ing in a con­stant stream of wing data and body posi­tion, cor­rects for vibra­tion for sta­ble flight indoors or out. . . .

“His­to­ry of the Carl Duis­berg Soci­ety” [15]

EXCERPT: In the 1920’s, Carl Duis­berg, Gen­er­al Direc­tor of Bay­er AG in Ger­many, envi­sioned send­ing Ger­man stu­dents to the Unit­ed States on work-study pro­grams. Duis­berg was con­vinced that inter­na­tion­al prac­ti­cal train­ing was crit­i­cal to the growth of Ger­man indus­try. Many of the return­ing trainees lat­er rose to promi­nent posi­tions at AEG, Bay­er, Bosch, Daim­ler Benz, and Siemens, bring­ing with them new meth­ods for mass pro­duc­tion, new ideas, and new busi­ness prac­tices. Fol­low­ing World War II, alum­ni from the first exchanges found­ed the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft (CDG) in 1949 to help engi­neers, busi­ness­men and farm­ers gain inter­na­tion­al work expe­ri­ence nec­es­sary for the rebuild­ing of Ger­many . . . .

Excerpt from the Descrip­tion for FTR #484 [13]

. . . . Daniel also notes that some of Atta’s Ger­man asso­ciates in Flori­da were sons and daugh­ters of promi­nent Ger­man indus­tri­al­ists. . . .

Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile by Paul Man­ning; p. 292. [14]

EXCERPT: . . . A for­mer CIA con­tract pilot, who once flew the run into Paraguay and Argenti­na to the Bor­mann ranch described the estate as remote, ‘worth your life unless you entered their air space with the right iden­ti­fi­ca­tion codes. . . .

Mar­tin Bor­mann: Nazi in Exile by Paul Man­ning; p. 205. [14]

EXCERPT: . . . The file revealed that he [Mar­tin Bor­mann] had been bank­ing under his own name from his office in Ger­many in Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires since 1941; that he held one joint account with the Argen­tin­ian dic­ta­tor Juan Per­on, and on August 4, 5 and 14, 1967, had writ­ten checks on demand accounts in first Nation­al City Bank (Over­seas Divi­sion) of New York, The Chase Man­hat­tan Bank, and Man­u­fac­tur­ers Hanover Trust Co., all cleared through Deutsche Bank of Buenos Aires. . . .
