FTR #950 Shock to the System: Further Reflections on the Breitbart Axis

This broad­cast updates cov­er­age of key aspects of the Nazi/fascist, oops, we mean “alt-right,” milieu that moved into gov­ern­ment cour­tesy of the Trumpenkampfver­bande and Bre­it­bart.

Fur­ther devel­op­ing the ter­ri­fy­ing real­i­ty of what Arti­fi­cial Intel­l­li­gence (AI) can accom­plish for the ded­i­cat­ed fas­cist, oops, we mean “alt-right” adher­ent, we note an impor­tant address giv­en at SXSW. Microsoft researcher Kate Craw­ford gave a speech titled “Dark Days: AI and the Rise of Fas­cism.” The pre­sen­ta­tion high­light­ed the social impact of machine learn­ing and large-scale data sys­tems. The take home mes­sage? By del­e­gat­ing pow­ers to Bid Data-dri­ven AIs, those AIs could become fascist’s dream: Incred­i­ble pow­er over the lives of oth­ers with min­i­mal account­abil­i­ty: ” . . . .‘This is a fascist’s dream,’ she said. ‘Pow­er with­out account­abil­i­ty.’ . . . .”

Turn­ing next to the polit­i­cal phi­los­o­phy of Steve Ban­non and the sem­i­nal influ­ences on its devel­op­ment, we refresh our acquain­tance with Cur­tis Yarvin, aka “Men­cius Mold­bug,” a her­ald of the Dark Enlight­ment.

Cur­tis Yarvin has actu­al­ly opened a backchan­nel advi­so­ry con­nec­tion to the White House.

Note that the Ban­non influ­ences all seem to agree that what is need­ed is “a shock to the sys­tem.” We may very well expe­ri­ence just that. ” . . . . . . . . Bannon’s read­ings tend to have one thing in com­mon: the view that tech­nocrats have put West­ern civ­i­liza­tion on a down­ward tra­jec­to­ry and that only a shock to the sys­tem can reverse its decline. . . . ”

Fas­cist philoso­pher Julius Evola is anoth­er of the key influ­ences on Ban­non. Evola was an ear­ly occult fas­cist, with strong con­nec­tions with Mus­solin­i’s Italy. Even­tu­al­ly Evola estab­lished strong, last­ing con­nec­tions with the Nazi SS, both oper­a­tional­ly and ide­o­log­i­cal­ly.

He is anoth­er advo­cate of the “shock to the system”/“blow it up” approach to the sta­tus quo. ” . . . Chang­ing the sys­tem, Evola argued, was ‘not a ques­tion of con­test­ing and polemi­ciz­ing, but of blow­ing every­thing up.’ . . . .”

A reveal­ing influ­ence on Ban­non is a French nov­el The Camp of the Saints by Jean Ras­pail. “. . . . The Camp of the Saints — which draws its title from Rev­e­la­tion 20:9 — is noth­ing less than a call to arms for the white Chris­t­ian West, to revive the spir­it of the Cru­sades and steel itself for bloody con­flict against the poor black and brown world with­out and the trai­tors with­in. The novel’s last line links past humil­i­a­tions tight­ly to its own grim para­ble about mod­ern migra­tion. ‘The Fall of Con­stan­tino­ple,’ Raspail’s unnamed nar­ra­tor says, ‘is a per­son­al mis­for­tune that hap­pened to all of us only last week.’ . . . . ”

In FTR #947, we high­light­ed Sebas­t­ian Gor­ka, a Bre­it­bart alum­nus and Hun­gar­i­an fas­cist. Gor­ka is now the Trump admin­is­tra­tion’s point man work­ing against Islam­ic ter­ror­ism. His view (and Ban­non’s) that we are engaged in an his­toric clash of civ­i­liza­tions. That is pre­cise­ly the point of view expressed by ISIS (and The Camp of the Saints) and will play into their hands.

That, in turn, will help pro­pel the U.S. into more end­less wars on the periph­ery of our empire, ulti­mate­ly sap­ping the nation’s vital­i­ty and lead­ing to the fall of the U.S. in a man­ner delin­eat­ed in FTR #944.

After review­ing Gorka’s anti-Semi­tism, his pro­found con­nec­tions to three gen­er­a­tions of Hun­gar­i­an fas­cism dat­ing to the pre-World War II peri­od and con­fir­ma­tion of his alle­giance to the Order of Vitezi Rend, we high­light the fact that Gor­ka is part of the Strate­gic Ini­tia­tives Group, some­thing of a par­al­lel NSC formed by Steve Ban­non. It reminds us of Hitler’s cre­ation of a par­al­lel gen­er­al staff, born of a mis­trust of his own senior offi­cers and a desire to have a trust­ed cadre to obey his orders.

” . . . . In the Unit­ed States, Gor­ka, who was appoint­ed deputy assis­tant to the pres­i­dent on Jan­u­ary 20, is known as a tele­vi­sion com­men­ta­tor, a pro­fes­sor and an “alt-right” writer who describes him­self as a coun­tert­er­ror­ism expert. A close asso­ciate of Stephen Ban­non, Trump’s chief strate­gist, Gor­ka is now part of Bannon’s key in-house White House think tank, the Strate­gic Ini­tia­tives Group. The new­ly formed group con­sists of fig­ures close to Trump and is seen by some as a rival to the Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil in for­mu­lat­ing poli­cies for the pres­i­dent. . . .”

The con­clu­sion of the pro­gram fore­shad­ows dis­cus­sion in our next broad­cast, which will crit­i­cal­ly exam­ine Bernie Sanders cam­paign and dis­turb­ing indi­ca­tions that his can­di­da­cy may have been gen­er­at­ed by the Under­ground Reich as a vehi­cle for infil­trat­ing and desta­bi­liz­ing the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty.

In FTR #941, we high­light­ed the push by Bernie Sanders and his promi­nent backer Tul­si Gab­bard to have Kei­th Elli­son, an African-Amer­i­can Mus­lim to be head of the DNC. He was not elect­ed head of the DNC, but is now deputy chair of the DNC, the posi­tion for­mer­ly held by Gab­bard.

Elli­son is net­worked with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, and the Nation of Islam as well. ” . . . . Indeed, the June 21, 1998 arti­cle states that at that time – that is, three years after Farrakhan’s march – Elli­son was a mem­ber of the Nation of Islam: ‘Elli­son has been active in the com­mu­ni­ty, but not with­in the estab­lished DFL par­ty [the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty in Min­neso­ta]. A mem­ber of the Nation of Islam, Elli­son was the coor­di­na­tor of the Min­neso­ta par­tic­i­pants in the Mil­lion Man March and the sub­se­quent com­mu­ni­ty group that formed.’ . . . .”

In a point of dis­cus­sion that will be con­duct­ed at greater length in our next pro­gram, we con­clude by not­ing that anoth­er of Kei­th Ellison’s sup­port­ers to head the DNC was Faisal Gill, a Grover Norquist pro­tege whom we cov­ered in FTR #467.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of Gorka’s for­ma­tion of a fas­cist par­ty in Hun­gary in the last decade; review of Gorka’s doc­tri­naire anti-Semi­tism; review of Gorka’s net­work­ing with mem­bers of the Job­bik Par­ty in Hun­gary; review of Gorka’s sup­port­ive atti­tude toward the Arrow Cross Par­ty, which allied with Hitler; review of Job­bik’s affin­i­ty with Julius Evola; review of Karl Rove’s and Grover Norquist’s sem­i­nal sup­port for the cre­ation of a Mus­lim Broth­er­hood branch of the GOP.

FTR #947 Evola on Our Minds

The entry point to our explo­ration of Julius Evola is top Trump advis­er and first tier NSC mem­ber Steve Ban­non. Evola is a key influ­ence on Ban­non. Evola was an ear­ly occult fas­cist, with strong con­nec­tions with Mus­solin­i’s Italy. Even­tu­al­ly Evola estab­lished strong, last­ing con­nec­tions with the Nazi SS, both oper­a­tional­ly and ide­o­log­i­cal­ly.

Evola has also influ­enced Alexan­der Dug­in, a promi­nent Russ­ian ide­o­logue and politi­cian.

The broad­cast recaps FTR #233, which details Evola’s work for the SS and Kevin Coogan’s the­o­ry that Evola was involved with an SS occult net­work incor­po­rat­ing impor­tant peo­ple and insti­tu­tions in both the West and behind the so-called “Iron Cur­tain.” Lat­er in the pro­gram, we fur­ther devel­op the sto­ry of Alexan­der Dug­in, a Russ­ian “Alt-right” thinker and politi­cian promi­nent in the Russ­ian gov­ern­ment. As men­tioned above, Dug­in, like Ban­non, has been influ­enced by Evola.

We won­der if, in the per­sons of Ban­non and Dug­in, we are see­ing “West­ern” and “East­ern” man­i­fes­ta­tions of what Kevin con­cep­tu­al­izes as “The Order.”

Draw­ing on mate­r­i­al from Kev­in’s sem­i­nal work Dream­er of the Day: Fran­cis Park­er Yock­ey and The Post­war Fas­cist Inter­na­tion­al (soft cov­er, Autono­me­dia, copy­right 1999, ISBN I‑57027–039‑2), the pro­gram sets forth a hypo­thet­i­cal con­struct advanced in the book. Hypoth­e­siz­ing an inter­na­tion­al fas­cist milieu orig­i­nat­ing from (though not coter­mi­nous with) the ide­o­log­i­cal ori­en­ta­tion of the Waf­fen SS, Kevin terms this milieu “The Order.” (This enti­ty is not to be con­fused with the 1980’s Amer­i­can Nazi orga­ni­za­tion of the same name.)

Begin­ning with analy­sis of Kev­in’s dis­cus­sion of the work of fas­cist occultist Julius Evola in Vien­na dur­ing the con­clu­sion of World War II, the pro­gram doc­u­ments Evola’s oper­a­tions on behalf of the SD (the SS intel­li­gence ser­vice.)

Like SS chief Himm­ler, Evola saw the SS as the suc­ces­sors to the Ksha­triya class (the Hin­du war­rior caste.) See­ing Ger­many and Europe as suc­cumb­ing to “bar­bar­ian inva­sion,” Evola saw a pagan, anti-Chris­t­ian mys­ti­cism as nec­es­sar­i­ly anti­thet­i­cal to the Judeo-Chris­t­ian cul­ture which, he felt, had led the West to decline before the “Bol­she­vik hordes” of the Sovi­et Union and the “chew­ing gum impe­ri­al­ism” of the Unit­ed States.

Kevin felt that this orga­ni­za­tion (reflect­ing the ide­o­log­i­cal stance of an ele­ment of the Waf­fen SS) would be pan-Euro­pean in scope and ori­en­ta­tion, and not nec­es­sar­i­ly entire­ly chau­vin­is­tic from a Nordic or Ger­man­ic racial and nation­al stand­point. Nour­ished by bank accounts secret­ed abroad, this hypo­thet­i­cal orga­ni­za­tion func­tions in an under­ground fash­ion. (The funds that nour­ished this insti­tu­tion would nec­es­sar­i­ly have derived from the Bor­mann Orga­ni­za­tion.) The Order appears to have estab­lished osten­si­bly friend­ly rela­tions with the West.

This orga­ni­za­tion may very well have begun work­ing with the U.S. intel­li­gence appa­rat after the war, as evi­denced by, among oth­er things, the col­lab­o­ra­tion between post-war SS ele­ments and the CIA. Coogan hypoth­e­sizes that CIA direc­tor Allen Dulles may have played a pri­ma­ry role in such an accord.

Anoth­er influ­ence on a Dulles/Order col­lab­o­ra­tive rela­tion­ship may have been psy­chol­o­gist Carl Jung, who was con­nect­ed to Dulles and to the Third Reich.

Sig­nif­i­cant­ly, the Order appears to have over­lapped, and also worked with, ele­ments of the East Bloc, includ­ing for­mer Sovi­et and East Ger­man nation­al secu­ri­ty offi­cials. The orga­ni­za­tion also main­tained con­tacts with “anti-impe­ri­al­ist,” Third World lib­er­a­tion move­ments.

Steve Ban­non’s dis­cus­sion of Alexan­der Dug­in gains sig­nif­i­cance in this con­text.

The Order appears to have exploit­ed its con­tacts with­in both East and West blocs to fur­ther its own fascis­tic and elit­ist agen­da, play­ing both sides against the mid­dle dur­ing the Cold War.

The Dugin/Evola affil­i­a­tion and the Bannon/Evola affil­i­a­tion may be sig­nif­i­cant in that con­text.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Sebas­t­ian Gorka’s man­i­fes­ta­tion of the her­aldry of the order of Vitezi Rend, close­ly asso­ci­at­ed with Nazi Ger­many’s Hun­gar­i­an allies;
Adbusters mag­a­zine’s pub­li­ciz­ing of Alexan­der Dugin–we review the fact that Adbusters appears to have played a key role in jump­start­ing the “Occu­py” move­ment.

FTR #944 Fireside Rant: WTF Is Going On? The Caligulization of America and the End of the American Century

This broad­cast is a (prob­a­bly part­ly unsuc­cess­ful) sum­ma­ry attempt at explain­ing what will be the results of the ascen­dance of the Trumpenkampfver­bande in the U.S. It is to be hoped that this descrip­tion will go fur­ther toward explain­ing what is going on than the orig­i­nal pro­gram. In addi­tion to the excerpts of arti­cles pre­sent­ed in the pro­gram, we will sum­ma­rize some of the cen­tral argu­ments in the broad­cast, with links to oth­er pro­grams and lec­tures, where pos­si­ble.

In AFA #37, we dis­cussed the Gehlen “Org” and relat­ed ele­ments as a Tro­jan Horse, using anti-com­mu­nism to infil­trate the Unit­ed States and, ulti­mate­ly, destroy it from with­in. In this pro­gram we devel­op that analy­sis fur­ther, adding the role of the House of Hab­s­burg and asso­ciates to the Tro­jan Horse metaphor. When the U.S. frus­trat­ed the de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, opt­ed to ally with the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work and the asso­ci­at­ed Hab­s­burg roy­al fam­i­ly, and returned the Japan­ese and Ital­ian fas­cists to pow­er (with a civil­ian facade), this coun­try signed its own death war­rant.

Amer­i­ca’s entry into two World Wars, after the com­bat had pro­ceed­ed for years, decid­ed both con­flicts against Ger­many. The Amer­i­can rev­o­lu­tion was the first suc­cess­ful revolt of a Euro­pean colo­nial pow­er against its colo­nial mas­ter. Both Ger­many and the House of Hab­s­burg vowed nev­er again! Nev­er!

In this con­text, we observe that the Hab­s­burgs (roy­al house of the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­i­an Empire) ruled for six hun­dred years. Six hun­dred years ago–1417–was three quar­ters of a cen­tu­ry before Colum­bus sailed. To the Hab­s­burgs, Amer­i­ca is a blip. Democ­ra­cy is a blip. They see things in an entire­ly dif­fer­ent way. Because the U.S. was an unas­sail­able mil­i­tary pow­er and the most pow­er­ful econ­o­my on earth, the coun­try could only be brought down by sub­ver­sion from with­in. We gave the Under­ground Reich and the Hab­s­burgs the keys to the king­dom, not unlike the Prae­to­ri­an Guard–Germanic mer­ce­nary troops appoint­ed to guard the Roman Emper­or. Even­tu­al­ly they con­trolled the throne and pre­served the Roman Empire for as long as it could make lucra­tive pay­ments to the Ger­man­ic tribes who even­tu­al­ly defeat­ed and sacked Rome.

The thrust of the broad­cast is that the ascen­sion of Trump–an Amer­i­can Caligula–is indeed the end of what Hen­ry Luce called “The Amer­i­can Cen­tu­ry.” The author of our first arti­cle is a for­mer edi­tor for Time mag­a­zine and a for­mer State Depart­ment offi­cer, so his lit­er­al take on Luce’s pro­nounce­ment is not sur­pris­ing. What Sten­gel is talk­ing about is the end of “Brand Amer­i­ca,” to coin a phrase–the suc­cess­ful PR mar­ket­ing of this coun­try as the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, etc.

That polit­i­cal mythol­o­gy, which com­pelled much of Mr. Emory’s ini­tial involve­ment in this research when he began in the ear­ly ’70s, will evap­o­rate. That dis­si­pa­tion, how­ev­er, will be eclipsed by the dev­as­tat­ing eco­nom­ic, envi­ron­men­tal, social and polit­i­cal dev­as­ta­tion that will sure­ly fol­low Trump’s poli­cies.

As Mr. Emory fore­cast in FTR #‘s 918 and 919, among oth­er pro­grams in the “Trumpenkampfver­bande” series, Trump’s anti-NATO rhetoric and gen­er­al dis­parag­ing of the Atlanti­cist alliances that have held sway dur­ing the bet­ter part of “The Amer­i­can Cen­tu­ry” are focused on pre­cip­i­tat­ing the Under­ground Reich goals of: an all-EU army replac­ing NATO, a Ger­man-dom­i­nate Europe assum­ing cen­ter stage in world affairs, and the forg­ing of an eco­nom­ic alliance with Rus­sia (fol­low­ing Russ­ian con­ces­sions on Ukraine) that will give “Cor­po­rate Ger­many” eco­nom­ic dom­i­na­tion over the Earth Island. A trade war with Chi­na, cou­pled with pos­si­ble mil­i­tary adven­tur­ism against that grow­ing giant, will sim­ply enhance its com­mer­cial and diplo­mat­ic grav­i­tas. Germany/EU will fill the vac­u­um, enhanc­ing their eco­nom­ic ascen­sion.

Our next arti­cle her­alds Mr. Emory’s prog­nos­ti­ca­tions. We do not feel Trump is nec­es­sar­i­ly con­scious of his role. In the age of mind con­trol, what goes on between a giv­en indi­vid­u­al’s ears is impos­si­ble to gauge, past a point. Among the var­i­ous and sundry dis­as­trous out­comes of Trump’s poli­cies may well be a cyber-ter­ror­ist inci­dent from a nation-state actor or a lone male­fac­tor, this the result of a fed­er­al hir­ing freeze. ” . . . On his first offi­cial day in office after inau­gu­ra­tion, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has made good on his plan to insti­tute a fed­er­al hir­ing freeze—part of his effort to slash the fed­er­al work­force. Details are sparse: Trump has said there would be excep­tions for the mil­i­tary, and a White House memo notes the freeze would be waived ‘when nec­es­sary to meet nation­al or pub­lic safe­ty respon­si­bil­i­ties.’ Some experts fear a tem­po­rary hir­ing freeze could exac­er­bate a chron­ic prob­lem in the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment: a wide­spread short­age of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty tal­ent. A hir­ing freeze could sig­nal to essen­tial cyber­se­cu­ri­ty talent—especially those who might con­sid­er join­ing the pub­lic sec­tor from high­er-pay­ing indus­try jobs—that there’s no need or desire for them in the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment, Alan Chvotkin, exec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of the Pro­fes­sion­al Ser­vices Coun­cil, told Nextgov. . . .”

Exem­pli­fy­ing a dis­con­nect that is sure to help bring our econ­o­my down, Labor Sec­re­tary Puzder lauds the val­ue of machines over humans. While he is cor­rect that machines do not do many things that he sees as counter-pro­duc­tive, he ignores the fact that machines don’t by food at Car­l’s Junior or Hard­ees, the food chains for which he is chief exec­u­tive. No machine has ever bought any­thing. ” . . . Fast food exec­u­tive Andrew Puzder, who Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump is expect­ed to tap as labor sec­re­tary, has advo­cat­ed replac­ing some human work­ers with machines as a way for busi­ness­es to reduce costs asso­ci­at­ed with ris­ing wages and health-care expens­es. While machines require reg­u­lar main­te­nance and can some­times mal­func­tion, Puzder said, they are also eas­i­er to man­age than humans and don’t pose the same legal risks. “They’re always polite, they always upsell, they nev­er take a vaca­tion, they nev­er show up late, there’s nev­er a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race dis­crim­i­na­tion case,” Puzder told Busi­ness Insid­er in March. Puzder serves as the chief exec­u­tive of CKE Restau­rants, the cor­po­rate par­ent behind fast food chains Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. . . .”

When automa­tion, infla­tion of the price of con­sumer goods that are import­ed and have had tar­iffs slapped on them by “The Don­ald,” lack of health care forc­ing work­ing peo­ple to devote increas­ing­ly scarce resources toward main­tain­ing their and/or their fam­i­lies’ health, the sub­ver­sion of min­i­mum wage, over­time and union­iza­tion laws and statutes and increas­ing con­cen­tra­tion of eco­nom­ic own­er­ship have brought Amer­i­can con­sumers to their knees, our con­sumer-based econ­o­my will col­lapse.

Last­ly, we note some­thing that her­alds poor­ly for the response of the Amer­i­can peo­ple to the chaos that is sure to enve­lope this coun­try after the envi­ron­men­tal, eco­nom­ic and social chaos that will inevitably result from Trump’s roll­back of decades of nec­es­sary reg­u­la­tion, enor­mous bud­get deficits from the GOP’s tax cuts, neu­tral­iza­tion of decades of progress on health care and roll­back of the New Deal.

With Bet­sy De Vos appoint­ed as Sec­re­tary of Edu­ca­tion, the already dis­mal, fright­en­ing civic aware­ness of our pub­lic school stu­dents fig­ures to get worse. In and of itself, that is cause for extreme pes­simism. As our soci­ety dis­in­te­grates from the inter­play of var­i­ous eco­nom­ic, polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary fac­tors, the calls for “some­one to do some­thing” to repair our dys­func­tion­al soci­ety are like­ly to increase expo­nen­tial­ly.

“. . . . When, 2011, the World Val­ues Sur­vey asked US cit­i­zens in their late teens and ear­ly 20s whether democ­ra­cy was a good way to run a coun­try, about a quar­ter said it was ‘bad’ or ‘very bad,’ an increase of one-third since the late 1990s. Among cit­i­zens of all ages, 1 in 6 now say in would be fine for the ‘army to rule,’ up from 1 in 16 in 1995. In a dif­fer­ent nation­al sur­vey, about two-thirds of Amer­i­cans could not name all three branch­es of the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment or which par­ty con­trolled the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. In a third study, almost half of the respon­dents said the gov­ern­ment should be per­mit­ted to pro­hib­it a peace­ful march. . . .”

Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of the Hab­s­burg role in Ukraine; review of Karl von Hab­s­burg and his UNPO; review of Karl von Hab­s­burg’s mar­riage to Francesca Thyssen-Borne­misza and, through that, the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work; review of the inti­mate prox­im­i­ty of the House of Hab­s­burg and the House of Liecht­en­stein; review of House of Liecht­en­stein cousin Mar­tin Wachter’s stew­ard­ship of a Bank al-Taqwa sub­sidiary; review of the Hab­s­burg prox­im­i­ty to the death of Antonin Scalia, which may have helped to solid­i­fy the GOP behind Trump.

FTR #911 The Crimean Tatars, Ukraine and The Underground Reich: Update on the Earth Island Boogie

Keyed by the vic­to­ry of a Crimean Tatar singer in the Euro­vi­sion song contest–she sang about their depor­ta­tion by Stal­in in 1944–the Crimean Tatars are in the polit­i­cal spot­light again.

Agi­tat­ing and con­spir­ing along­side OUN/B fas­cist heirs Pravy Sek­tor in Ukraine, the Crimean Tatars have become some­thing of a cause cele­bre in the course of col­lab­o­rat­ing to desta­bi­lize Crimea and Rus­sia. What has been eclipsed by the cur­rent con­tro­ver­sy is the long his­to­ry of Crimean Tatar col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Third Reich, ini­tial­ly, and then West­ern intel­li­gence.

Uti­lized as a wedge against the for­mer Sovi­et Union, the Crimean Tatars were enlist­ed in the anti-Sovi­et Promethean League in the peri­od between the two world wars and sub­se­quent­ly turned to the Third Reich as spon­sors and allies, see­ing the Nazi armies as their tick­et to auton­o­my. Through­out this almost cen­tu­ry-long odyssey, the Crimean Tatars have served along­side the Ukrain­ian fas­cists of the OUN/B and its suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions. ” . . . Berlin began forg­ing plans for win­ning over Sovi­et lin­guis­tic minori­ties (‘Volks­grup­pen’) to col­lab­o­rate with the Nazis in the war against Moscow. The atten­tion of strate­gists in the Ger­man For­eign Min­istry and in the Reich Min­istry for the Occu­pied East­ern Ter­ri­to­ries fell on the approx. 200,000 Crimean Tatars. The idea was encour­aged by the hope that, with the Tatar’s help, offi­cial­ly neu­tral Turkey could also be won over to enter the war. Ankara saw itself as the pro­tec­tive pow­er for Tur­kic-speak­ing minori­ties, includ­ing the Tatar lin­guis­tic group on the Crimean Penin­su­la. . . . The Bat­tle Group D began imme­di­ate­ly to recruit Crimean Tatar vol­un­teers for the war against the Sovi­et Union. In Decem­ber 1941, this bat­tle group had mas­sa­cred more than 13,000 peo­ple — 11,000 Jews and over 800 Roma — in Sim­fer­opol (Crimea). . . .”

Fol­low­ing mil­i­tary defeat in the Sec­ond World War, the Crimean Tatars and their pri­ma­ry spon­sor in the Ostministerium–Gerhard von Mende–continued their work apace under the aus­pices of Frank Wis­ner and Allen Dulles’s CIA and the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion, both in its CIA incar­na­tion and after it’s incor­po­ra­tion as the BND, the intel­li­gence ser­vice of the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many. The Crimean Tatar/Ukrainian fas­cist col­lab­o­ra­tion has con­tin­ued into the post-Maid­an peri­od.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Review of Crimean Tatar/Pravy Sek­tor blockad­ing of road traf­fic into Crimea; review of Crimean Tatar/Pravy Sek­tor col­lab­o­ra­tion in the sab­o­tage of Crimea’s elec­tric grid; con­tem­po­rary Ger­man polit­i­cal liai­son with dis­si­dent Crimean Tatars; Turkey’s ongo­ing sup­port for the Crimean Tatars, part of Erdo­gan’s “neo-Ottoman”/Pan-Turkic pol­i­cy; von Mende’s use of Third Reich col­lab­o­ra­tor Edi­ge Kir­i­mal dur­ing the Cold War; review of the UNA-UNSO’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with Chechens and oth­er Cau­casian Islamists fol­low­ing the breakup of the Sovi­et Union.

FTR #860 Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Part 7 (All’s Well That’s Orwell, Part 3)

In a recent appear­ance before a Jew­ish audi­ence (while drum­ming up sup­port for the Iran nuclear deal), Pres­i­dent Oba­ma not­ed that Iran was a coun­try that denied the Holo­caust. Oba­ma’s remarks were deeply iron­ic in light of the fact that the OUN/B redux gov­ern­ment in pow­er in Ukraine (with Amer­i­can mil­i­tary, polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic sup­port) con­tin­ues to man­i­fest a pro­found Holo­caust revi­sion­ism. Polit­i­cal and mil­i­tary allies of the Third Reich, the OUN/B under Stephan Ban­dera and Jaroslav Stet­sko imple­ment­ed eth­nic cleans­ing mas­sacres against Jews, Poles, Rus­sians Roma and oth­er “polit­i­cal unde­sir­ables” dur­ing the Sec­ond World War. Nur­tured with­in ele­ments of West­ern intel­li­gence and incor­po­rat­ed into the Repub­li­can Par­ty after World War II, the OUN/B were pro­ject­ed back into Ukraine fol­low­ing the breakup of the U.S.S.R. Imple­ment­ing a law crim­i­nal­iz­ing crit­i­cism of the OUN/B and its mil­i­tary wing the UPA, the Ukrain­ian regime is insti­tu­tion­al­iz­ing a fun­da­men­tal per­ver­sion of that region’s his­to­ry dur­ing World War II. The Ukrain­ian per­spec­tive is being echoed in West­ern media and polit­i­cal pro­nounce­ments. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the Nazi Azov Bat­tal­ion’s devel­op­ment of a youth wing; the white­wash­ing of the mur­der­ous career of Symon Petliu­ra, a Ukrain­ian pogromist and antecedent of the OUN/B; the role of OUN/B oper­a­tive Volodomyr Via­tro­vych in imple­ment­ing Ukraine’s his­tor­i­cal revi­sion­ism; con­tin­ued cov­er-up of the facts con­cern­ing the shoot­down of Malaysian Air­lines flight MH-17; review of “Yuschenkoism”–Viktor Yuschenko’s revi­sion­ist poli­cies that set the stage for Poroshenko’s per­pet­u­a­tion of those poli­cies; review of Ukrain­ian pres­i­dents Yuschenko and Poroshenko hon­or­ing the OUN/B exe­cu­tion­ers at Babi Yar; Symon Pet­lyu­ra’s abortive alliance with Vladimir Jabotin­sky, which has been used to deny Petli­u­ra’s anti-Semi­tism.

FTR #855: Greek Tragedy, Part 3

Fol­low­ing Ger­many’s imple­men­ta­tion of an aus­ter­i­ty pro­gram on Greece that offi­cial­ly and as a mat­ter of course negates Greek nation­al sov­er­eign­ty and democ­ra­cy, we exam­ine that agree­ment and the his­to­ry that led up to it. Even rel­a­tive­ly con­ser­v­a­tive Amer­i­can and Euro­pean observers are label­ing the devel­op­ment a “coup” against Greek democ­ra­cy. We would call it a for­eign occu­pa­tion by Ger­many. The events in Europe can only be under­stood in terms of the exe­cu­tion of a con­sum­mate­ly bril­liant, cyn­i­cal plan to imple­ment Ger­man polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic hege­mo­ny through a series of wars and what Von Clause­witz called “Post-wars.” The con­ti­nu­ity of Ger­man polit­i­cal, mil­i­tary and eco­nom­ic pol­i­cy through decades and across a chal­leng­ing diver­si­ty of events is far-sight­ed and rig­or­ous. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Ger­man Finance Min­is­ter Wolf­gang Schauble’s use of Third Reich cross-bor­der sub­ver­sion spe­cial­ist Theodor Veit­er as a key advis­er on Euro­pean eco­nom­ic affairs; the explic­it con­trol of Greece’s eco­nom­ic affairs by “the insti­tu­tions” [of Ger­many and the EU]; Schauble’s appar­ent goal of dri­ving Greece out of the Euro­zone; Ger­many’s suc­cess­ful eva­sion of its World War II debt; an overview of the evo­lu­tion of Friedrich List’s blue­print for eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal con­trol of Europe and the world; review of the troika’s impo­si­tion of a 2011 Greek coali­tion gov­ern­ment that includ­ed the fas­cist LAOS par­ty; the fun­da­men­tal­ly dif­fer­ent approach of Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions to car­tel agree­ments from that of their inter­na­tion­al partners/competitors.

FTR #853 Walkin’ the Snake at Babi Yar: Update on the Ukraine Crisis

Once again, we revis­it the sce­nario pre­sent­ed in the Nazi tract “Ser­pen­t’s Walk.” Sup­pos­ed­ly a nov­el, the book deals with a Nazi takeover of the U.S. in the mid-21st cen­tu­ry by the SS, who have gained eco­nom­ic influ­ence in the opin­ion-form­ing media and stood the polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal record of World War Ii on its head. We are see­ing this in Ukraine, where both pres­i­dents Yuschenko and Poroshenko vis­it­ed the site of the Babi Yar mas­sacres, in order to hon­or the OUN/B exe­cu­tion­ers who helped per­pe­trate the atroc­i­ty. Con­tem­po­rary Ukraine is also see­ing the atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted by OUN/B and the UPA being offi­cial­ly denied and pro­tect­ed from crit­i­cism by new crim­i­nal laws. Sup­port­ers of OUN and UPA are deny­ing their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Lvov pogrom of 1941, despite clear his­tor­i­cal evi­dence of their role. Con­tem­po­rary anti-Semi­tism in Ukraine is being dis­sem­i­nat­ed by the MAUP orga­ni­za­tion, which runs the largest pri­vate uni­ver­si­ty in Ukraine. Pro­gram High­lights Include: David Duke’s teach­ing role at the MAUP-fund­ed uni­ver­si­ty; Julian Assange aide Joran Jer­mas aka “Israel Shamir,” who is part of the MAUP orbit; a march by OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tion Pravy Sek­tor call­ing for a resump­tion of hos­til­i­ties in the East; review of the role of the Nachti­gall (“Nightin­gale”) group in the Lvov pogrom; review of the mas­sive and well-con­nect­ed Ukrain­ian fas­cist pres­ence in the U.S. pri­or to World War II; the draft­ing of the new Ukrain­ian law crim­i­nal­iz­ing crit­i­cism of OUN and UPA by Yuri Shukhevych, the son of Roman Shukhevych, the head of UPA.

Ukrainian Presidents Honored the Executioners of Babi Yar: Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine, Continued

“. . . For­mer Pres­i­dent Vik­tor Yushchenko, in fact, hon­ored Ukrain­ian nation­al­ists at a memo­r­i­al in Babi Yar, where the most hor­rif­ic mas­sacre of Jews took place through­out the Holo­caust [per­formed by units large­ly com­posed of OUN/B members–D.E.]. . . . In fact, the Pres­i­dent [Poroshenko] has gone out of his way to fol­low in the foot­steps of his reac­tionary pre­de­ces­sor Yushchenko by once again lay­ing a wreath in hon­or of the OUN at Babi Yar. . . .” All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.

Surprise! Merkel Just Vetoed the Presidential Vote. She Has Other Plans In Mind.

If you’ve been fol­low­ing the upcom­ing EU elec­tions sched­uled for lat­er this month and the tight race for EU Com­mis­sion Pres­i­dent. And if you’ve been fol­low­ing that race close­ly, you’ve no doubt been bored out of your mind. But at least now, for the first time ever, EU vot­ers will get to vote for their future col­lec­tive pres­i­dent. Then again, maybe not. Either way, big changes could be com­ing. Soon. .
