Reflections on The Capitol Riot, Part 2: Schwarzenegger Weighs In

Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger opined that the Capi­tol Riot remind­ed him of Die Kristall­nacht. He is wrong. The Capi­tol Riot most close­ly resem­bles the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923. To under­stand the “deep pol­i­tics” of Arnold Schwarzeneg­ger, we recap dis­cus­sion of William Arm­st­ed Robin­son, the reclu­sive mag­nate who was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s num­ber one finan­cial backer. Robin­son appears to be a cat’s paw for the intru­sion of big Ger­man cap­i­tal into the U.S. Air Car­go mar­ket. (This intru­sion is appar­ent­ly tak­ing place through Deutsche Post—the Ger­man postal monopoly—and its con­trol of DHL, the com­pa­ny Robin­son found­ed.) We cov­ered Robin­son and Schwarzeneg­ger at length in FTR #492. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Robin­son’s secre­tive posi­tion and habits; Robin­son’s appar­ent role as a pro­fes­sion­al front for Deutsche Post (the Ger­man gov­ern­men­t’s postal ser­vice); Charges by DHL com­peti­tors that Robin­son and DHL have been eva­sive in their pro­fes­sion­al rep­re­sen­ta­tions; Robin­son’s prob­a­ble role as a front man for the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion.

“The City of Elevation” Comes into View Once Again: Muslim Brotherhood Moves Headquarters to Graz, Austria

An inter­est­ing devel­op­ment con­cerns the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood’s relo­ca­tion of their head­quar­ters to Graz, Aus­tria and three oth­er unnamed Euro­pean cities. Graz was a city that enjoyed Hitler’s favor and was an epi­cen­ter for post­war Under­ground Reich activ­i­ty. Mus­lim Broth­er­hood lynch­pin and appar­ent for­mer Third Reich intel­li­gence agent Youssef Nada resided there in the 1960’s, as did a num­ber of oth­er Broth­er­hood activists. the Schwarzeneg­ger fam­i­ly also had links to the Graz area.

Poll Reveals Persistence, Vitality of Nazism in Austria

A recent poll by an Aus­tri­an peri­od­i­cal revealed the degree of vital­i­ty that Nazism retains in that coun­try, once part of Hitler’s Third Reich. Not only did respon­dents think that the Nazi Par­ty would be elect­ed today if it were legal­ized, but many expect renewed per­se­cu­tion of Jews in the near future. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, many of those polled did­n’t think that Hitler’s rule was all that bad.

Joerg Haider Hid Millions in Liechtenstein Accounts

Com­ment: The late Aus­tri­an fas­cist leader appears to have hid mil­lions in Liecht­en­stein accounts. Long a mon­ey-laun­der­ing vehi­cle for var­i­ous fas­cist and crim­i­nal ele­ments, Liecht­en­stein has become a focal point for var­i­ous coun­tries seek­ing accounts belong­ing to tax dodgers in their respec­tive coun­tries. Note that his Free­dom Par­ty began as a vehi­cle for the polit­i­cal […]

Austria’s Largest Daily Endorses Nazi Revisionist Candidate

“Aus­tri­an Far-Right Icon Eyes Pres­i­den­cy” by Veroni­ka Oleksyn [AP]; google.com; 3/3/2010. A woman who has crit­i­cized anti-Nazi law and is mar­ried to an extreme right­ist is run­ning for pres­i­dent in Aus­tria, and crit­ics con­tend her can­di­dacy could tar­nish the rep­u­ta­tion of a coun­try still marred by its con­nec­tion to the Holo­caust. Bar­bara Rosenkranz, 51, is […]

Will California Sink the U.S. and Global Economy?

Com­ment: With the Grop­pen­fuhrer lead­ing the Gold­en State, one can but won­der to what extent this may have been by design. Schwarzeneg­ger has vetoed bill after bill that would have raised tax­es in order to relieve Cal­i­for­ni­a’s crush­ing fis­cal sit­u­a­tion, with the unwa­ver­ing sup­port of Cal­i­for­nia Repub­li­cans. If Oba­ma and the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment have to […]
