FTR #920 The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 3: The Underground Reich Emerges Into Plain View

QUICK: How many Pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates can you name who kept a book of Adolf Hitler’s speech­es by their bed­side? Don­ald Trump does. For many years, what Mr. Emory terms “The Under­ground Reich” has been a fun­da­men­tal point of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis in these broad­casts and posts. In the third pro­gram ana­lyz­ing the Don­ald Trump cam­paign, we exam­ine the “Trumpenkampfver­bande,” its polit­i­cal antecedents and adher­ents. Exem­pli­fy­ing, and net­work­ing with, gen­er­a­tions of fas­cists and fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions, the Trumpenkampfver­bande embod­ies the emer­gence of the Under­ground Reich into plain view. A sig­na­ture ele­ment of Trump’s cam­paign is his resus­ci­ta­tion of the “Amer­i­ca First” slo­gan and con­cept, a man­i­fes­ta­tion both of his thin­ly-veiled appeal to Nazi and white suprema­cist ele­ments and his will­ing­ness to cede dom­i­nance over world affairs to a Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed “third pow­er bloc.” The Amer­i­ca First con­cept mobi­lizes pow­er­ful feel­ings among those feel­ing over­whelmed and left behind by polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic devel­op­ments glob­al­ly and in the Unit­ed States. We note that the “orig­i­nal” Amer­i­ca First was financed by Nazi Ger­many. Trump’s invo­ca­tion of Amer­i­ca First exem­pli­fies the nature of his polit­i­cal her­itage and alle­giances. One of his top advis­ers Joseph E. Schmitz, “obsessed with all things Ger­man” and, accord­ing to asso­ciates, some­one who “fired the Jews” (from the Pen­ta­gon) and man­i­fest­ed Holo­caust denial. This is not atyp­i­cal of “Team Trump.” One of the most impor­tant fig­ures in main­stream­ing “alt right” (i.e. Nazi, white nation­al­ist and anti-Semit­ic) atti­tudes has been Breitbart’s Steve Ban­non, now essen­tial­ly run­ning the Trump cam­paign. Trump and his cam­paign have a habit of re-tweet­ing infor­ma­tion from “alt right” web­sites and mes­sage boards. Of pri­ma­ry sig­nif­i­cance in ana­lyz­ing Trump con­cerns the main finan­cial backer of his real estate projects–Deutsche Bank. In addi­tion to the fact that this places a poten­tial Pres­i­dent in the posi­tion of owing upwards of $100 mil­lion to an insti­tu­tion that has open­ly defied U.S. reg­u­la­to­ry posi­tions, Deutsche Bank is a pri­ma­ry ele­ment of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, about which we speak so often. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Analy­sis of the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Trump’s father was in the Ku Klux Klan; review of Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with for­mer Axis spy Nor­man Vin­cent Peale; review of Trump’s counsel–Senator Joe McCarthy aide Roy Cohn; Trump’s addi­tion­al finan­cial back­ing from George Soros, who got his start in busi­ness “Aryaniz­ing” Jew­ish prop­er­ty dur­ing the Holo­caust; Trump’s tweet­ing of a cam­paign ad fea­tur­ing Waf­fen SS-clad World War II re-enac­tors; The enthu­si­as­tic sup­poprt Trump has received from David Duke.

FTR #889 Intercept This! Compendium on Citizen Omidyar

Draw­ing togeth­er infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in numer­ous broad­casts over the peri­od of sev­er­al years, this pro­gram high­lights the endeav­ors of Glenn Green­wald’s journalistic/financial angel Pierre Omid­yar. Guid­ed by the Aus­tri­an School/free-mar­ket, neo-lib­er­al eco­nom­ics of Her­nan­do De Soto, Omid­yar’s “phil­an­thropic” efforts are close­ly aligned with covert action imple­ment­ed in con­cert with U.S. intel­li­gence cutouts such as U.S. Agency for Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment, the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy and the Ford Foun­da­tion.

Focus­ing on the Omid­yar Net­work’s SKS orga­ni­za­tion, the dis­cus­sion notes the bru­tal, lethal results of its micro-finance pro­grams in India. Omid­yar Net­work’s key Indi­an func­tionary Jayant Sin­ha, took time off to help direct the elec­tion cam­paign of Naren­dra Modi, whose BJP is a cat’s paw for the RSS, a Hin­du nationalist/fascist orga­ni­za­tion inspired by Hitler and Mus­soli­ni. Three quar­ter of Mod­i’s cab­i­net was select­ed from the RSS, to which Modi belonged. (Gand­hi was assas­si­nat­ed by a mem­ber of RSS.)

One of the key vehi­cles for Omid­yar Net­work’s “phil­an­thropy” in India is the Rur­al Devel­op­ment Insti­tute (renamed “Lan­desa”), devel­oped by Roy Proster­man. Proster­man’s RDI was a key fea­ture of the Phoenix assas­si­na­tion pro­gram in Viet­nam. Cit­i­zen Omid­yar has also helped to fund the return to pow­er of the OUN/B fas­cists in Ukraine, again part­ner­ing with U.S. intel­li­gence cutouts such as U.S. AID and the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Mod­i’s pro­ject­ed roll­back of Indi­a’s laws against child labor; the sti­fling of free­dom of speech under Mod­i’s regime; the Modi gov­ern­men­t’s com­plic­i­ty in lethal anti-Mus­lim vig­i­lante actions; the neo-lib­er­al eco­nom­ic goals of Omid­yar Net­work’s “land acqui­si­tion” micro-finance projects; Omid­yar pro­tege Oleh Rybachuk’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Yuschenko gov­ern­ment; Rybachuk’s efforts to inte­grate Ukraine into NATO and the EU; Omid­yar pro­tege Svit­lana Zalis­chuk’s efforts to inte­grate Ukraine into NATO and the EU, men­tored by Rybachuk; Omid­yar pro­tege Zalis­chuk’s efforts on behalf of the lus­tra­tion laws, seen as the legal foun­da­tion for a broad-based purge; Zalis­chuk’s efforts pro­mot­ing net­work­ing between Ukrain­ian Nazi par­ties such as Svo­bo­da and the so-called “mod­er­ate” par­ties; Omid­yar’s part­ner­ing with the Nation­al Endow­ment for Democ­ra­cy to cre­ate a “fact-fund­ing” ser­vice; review of the devel­op­ment of the NED as a cutout for U.S. intel­li­gence by William Casey and the Rea­gan admin­is­tra­tion.

FTR #767 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 11: The Destabilization of the NSA and GCHQ

The activ­i­ties of Eddie the Friend­ly Spook make no sense in the con­text of civ­il lib­er­ties. They make a great deal of sense in terms of the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Oba­ma admin­is­tra­tion, the NSA and the GCHQ. Snow­den may have tak­en up to 1.7 mil­lion doc­u­ments, includ­ing infor­ma­tion that could per­mit a male­fac­tor to suc­cess­ful­ly evade NSA scruti­ny. Snow­den’s activ­i­ties may lead to nul­li­fi­ca­tion of the NSA plans to defend against cybert­er­ror­ism.

Update on Snowden’s “Op” as Destabilization of Obama


A recent law­suit against the NSA about its spy­ing oper­a­tions was brought by Lar­ry Klay­man, an extreme right-winger who called on the “Mus­lim” Oba­ma to put down the “Quran” and come out of the White House with his hands up!

Judge Richard J. Leon, who ruled in favor of Klay­man and his clients, is a loy­al Bush fam­i­ly run­ning dog, hav­ing helped to cov­er-up the Iran-Con­tra scan­dal and the Octo­ber Sur­prise, in addi­tion to hav­ing been involved with the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Clin­ton admin­is­tra­tion over the non-exis­tent White­wa­ter “crimes.”

FTR #763 The Adventures of Eddie The Friendly Spook, Part 9: Citizen Greenwald’s Financial Angel

This pro­gram high­lights the finan­cial angel behind the new media out­let being launched by “Eddie the Friend­ly Spook” Snowden’s leak­ing jour­nal­ist of choice, that res­olute cham­pion of human lib­erty Glenn “Give me a Nazi and I will defend him pro-bono” Green­wald. The founder of EBay (which bought Pay­Pal from Peter Thiel), Pierre Omid­yar has been hailed as a ver­i­ta­ble saint by the media. In fact, he is a crea­ture in the mold of the Koch Broth­ers and the Lud­wig von Mis­es Insti­tute. Omid­yar-backed projects in the Third World have had dev­as­tat­ing results.

‘Roid Rage: The Bosches, the Bushes and Sports Doping

The Bush fam­i­ly has been very, very close to the anti-Cas­tro Cuban exile com­mu­ni­ty for decades, includ­ing and espe­cial­ly the late Orlan­do Bosch, head of the CORU orga­ni­za­tion. Now, it emerges that a rel­a­tive of Orlan­do Bosch heads the Bio­gen­e­sis firm, under inves­ti­ga­tion for alleged­ly pro­vid­ing per­for­mance-enhanc­ing drugs to pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes.

A Lie Can Run a Marathon Before the Truth Can Put Its Running Shoes on: (“Truther” Consequences)

The news cycle in this coun­try is dom­i­nat­ed by cov­er­age of the Boston bomb­ings. This is pre­dictable. So is the ten­den­cy toward sim­plis­tic and/or one-dimen­sion­al analy­sis. Gen­er­al­ly, we’re hear­ing: It was the “gov­ern­ment,” “home-grown domes­tic (i.e. right-wing, Aryan types) ter­ror­ists,” or “Islam­ic ter­ror­ists.” As this post indi­cates, the divi­sions among these are not near­ly so sim­ple.

Grover Norquist Strikes Again!

Ear­li­er this month, the Tea Party/GOP Right demon­strat­ed their hypocrisy, as well as the degree of sol­i­dar­i­ty between the Islam­ic fas­cists of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and the GOP. The Jihad Watch web­site received the “Peo­ple’s Choice Award” at the 2013 Con­ser­v­a­tive Polit­i­cal Action Com­mit­tee. The award­ing of the hon­or was blocked, how­ev­er by the Tea Par­ty Repub­li­cans, who would only con­sent to give the award if the admin­is­tra­tors of the site would agree not to crit­i­cize Grover Norquist.

FTR #730 Interview with Russ Baker (Author of “Family of Secrets”)

Break­ing jour­nal­is­tic taboos about the JFK assas­si­na­tion, Russ Bak­er por­trays the real­i­ty of Amer­i­can pow­er pol­i­tics, as exem­pli­fied by the Bush fam­i­ly’s use of covert action to manip­u­late the Unit­ed States and its cit­i­zens.

FTR #725 Leak This! WikiSpooks and the World of Stieg Larsson

Wik­iLeaks inex­tri­ca­bly linked with intel­li­gence ser­vices around the world; A founder of the group says they act like “spies”; Wik­iLeaks’ Swedish base of oper­a­tions over­laps the Swedish fas­cist polit­i­cal milieu por­trayed in the Stieg Lars­son books and movies.
