 COMMENT: Due to the shelter-in-place restrictions, it is not possible for Mr. Emory to do his annual Memorial Day marathon programming about the decisive connections between American industry and finance and the Axis powers of World War II.
However, we re-post the description and program links from last year’s special for viewing and use of the listening–and reading–audience:
“On Sunday, we will highlight the American-German industrial axis and its various manifestations. On Monday, we will explore the American-Japanese industrial axis.
In the decades since the end of the Second World War, much has been written about the war and fascism, the driving force behind the aggression that precipitated that conflict. Unfortunately, much of what has been said and written has failed to identify and analyze the causes, nature and methodology of fascism—German National Socialism or “Nazism” in particular. A deeper, more accurate analysis  was presented in published literature, particularly volumes published during, or in the immediate aftermath of, the Second World War.
. . . . Fascism (Nazism in particular) was an outgrowth of globalization and the construction of international monopolies (cartels). Key to understanding this phenomenon is analysis of the Webb-Pomerene act, legislated near the end of the First World War. A loophole in the Anti-trust legislation of 1914, it effectively legalized the formation of cartels—international monopolies—for firms that were barred from domestic monopolistic practices.
Decrying what they viewed as excessive and restrictive “regulation” here in the United States, U.S.-based transnational corporations invested their profits from the industrial boom of the 1920’s abroad, primarily in Japan and Germany. This process might well be viewed as the real beginning of what is now known as “globalization.” This reinvestment of the profits of the American industrial boom of the 1920’s in Japanese and German strategic heavy industry was the capital that drove the engines of conquest that subdued both Europe and Asia during World War II.
 On Sunday, we will highlight the American-German industrial axis and its various manifestations. Beginning with FTR #511 , we will explore the fundamentals of American corporate investment in Nazi Germany; attempts by those U.S. power brokers to overthrow Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FTR #602 ); the coalescence and prevalence of the remarkable and deadly Bormann organization (FTR #305 ); the creation of the Christian West–a Hitler-less Third Reich fused with the power of the Western Allies in an anti-Soviet alliance (FTR #‘s 1058, 1059, 1060 ); and the deal between Allen Dulles and Martin Bormann to facilitate the escape of Adolf Hitler from Europe as part of the coalescence of The Christian West (FTR #‘s 914, 915 .)
On Monday, we will explore the American-Japanese industrial axis, beginning with (FTR #905 ). Continuing to analysis of the Golden Lily project, we present: FTR #‘s 428 , 446 , 451 , 501 , 509 , 688 , 689 .
Highlights of the discussion of Golden Lily include:
- The combining of Japanese Golden Lily loot with gold looted by the Third Reich.
- The complicity of the Vatican in the Golden Lily bullion hoarding and laundering.
- The unsuccessful attempts by former U.S. POW’s to receive compensation for their slave labor while they were Japanese prisoners.
- The complicity of U.S. officials in covering-up the POW’s efforts at receiving compensation and those officials’ links to corporate Japan and the beneficiaries of Golden Lily wealth. ” . . . . The real issue is conflict of interest. During the Clinton Administration, U.S. Ambassador to Japan Thomas Foley was adamant in rejecting compensation for POW’s and other slave laborers, insisting that ‘The peace treaty put aside all claims against Japan.’ His Deputy Chief of Mission, Christopher J. LaFleur, echoed this dogma at every opportunity. It was a matter of some interest to victims that Foley’s wife was a well-paid consultant to Sumitomo, one of Japan’s biggest zaibatsu conglomerates, heavily involved in wartime slave labor and a target of the lawsuits. The moment Foley ended his tenure as ambassador and returned to America, he signed on as a paid advisor and lobbyist to another huge conglomerate-Mitsubishi-one of the biggest wartime users of slave labor. Of greater significance, perhaps, is that Lafleur is married to the daughter of former prime minister and finance minister Miyazawa, one of the three Japanese who secretly negotiated the 1951 treaty with John Foster Dulles. (Miyazawa also is considered by professor Lausier and others to be the financial overseer of the M‑Fund.) Conflict of interest does not seem to be an obstacle in diplomatic appointments to Tokyo.) . . . .”
- The use of Golden Lily wealth to finance U.S. covert operations.
- The profound link of Golden Lily to the re-institutionalization of Japanese fascism after World War II.
- Then Vice-President Richard Nixon’s return of control of the consummately important “M Fund” to Japan, under the stewardship of Prime Minister Nobosuke Kishi, a Japanese war criminal and the grandfather of current PM Shinzo Abe.
- The destruction of former Assistant Attorney General Norbert Schlei for his attempts at redeeming a “57” bond.
- The suspicious death of writer Iris Chang, who chronicled the Rape of Nanking and was a collaborator with Peggy and Sterling Seagrave on their book.
- The byzantine cover-up of the enormous amounts of gold in U.S. financial institutions and the violent retribution received by many who attempted to penetrate the cover-up.
We conclude with a presentation of the re-emergence of fascism in present-day Japan, accelerated under the reign of Shinzo Abe, the grandson of Nobosuke Kishi in FTR #969 .”
