FTR #1163 Farewell America, Part 2

The pro­gram kicks off with a look at a full-page adver­tise­ment from The New York Times pledg­ing resis­tance to Trump admin­is­tra­tion attempts at elec­toral nul­li­fi­ca­tion. The orga­ni­za­tion behind the ad is RefuseFascism.org. We note the first two sig­na­to­ries:

1.–Cornel West–a mem­ber of the [Bernie] Sanders Institute–advised after the 2016 Demo­c­ra­t­ic Nation­al Con­ven­tion that the Sanders vot­ers had no choice but to cast their bal­lot for Jill Stein, the Green Par­ty can­di­date.
2.–Noam Chomsky–whose work on gen­er­a­tive lin­guis­tics (which estab­lished him as an aca­d­e­mi­cian) was financed large­ly by Navy and Air Force Intelligence–helped to neu­tral­ize recog­ni­tion of the deci­sive role in the Viet­nam War of JFK’s assas­si­na­tion. JFK was in the process of pulling the U.S. out of Viet­nam. That was among the rea­sons he was killed. With his behav­ior fol­low­ing the Oliv­er Stone opus “JFK,” Noam Chom­sky did much to per­pet­u­ate the insti­tu­tion­al­ized fas­cism that has pos­sessed the U.S. since before the end of World War II. Gen­er­a­tive lin­guis­tics proved most use­ful in teach­ing per­son­nel at the Mon­terey Defense Lan­guage Insti­tute, one of whose grad­u­ates was Lee Har­vey Oswald.

On the back of the front sec­tion of that same edi­tion of The New York Times is an obit­u­ary of Sey­mour Top­ping. A lumi­nary of the “Gray Lady” for decades, he was South­east Asian Bureau chief from 1963 until 1966, dur­ing the time that JFK was mur­dered and the Viet­nam War, as a result, gained full momen­tum.

Much of the pro­gram sets forth mate­r­i­al from a con­sum­mate­ly impor­tant recent book: Chaos: Charles Man­son, the CIA, and the Secret His­to­ry of the Six­ties by Tom O’Neill.

O’Neill devel­ops a strong, albeit cir­cum­stan­tial, case that the crim­i­nal activ­i­ties of the Man­son Fam­i­ly were the core of a domes­tic intel­li­gence oper­a­tion. Specif­i­cal­ly, it appears that the Man­son “op” was a key ele­ment of a domes­tic Phoenix program–an assas­si­na­tion and ter­ror cam­paign in the South dur­ing the Viet­nam War.

Designed to “win hearts and minds,” the Phoenix Pro­gram was real­ized by the CIA, and employed “false flag” ter­ror­ist inci­dents and the delib­er­ate mur­ders of non-com­bat­ants that were blamed on the Viet­cong and North Viet­namese.

” . . . . A Spe­cial Forces sol­dier, Antho­ny Her­bert, the sin­gle most dec­o­rat­ed com­bat vet­er­an of Viet­nam, pub­lished a best­selling book, Sol­dier, that detailed typ­i­cal orders from his Phoenix supe­ri­ors: “They want­ed me to take charge of exe­cu­tion teams that wiped out entire fam­i­lies and tried to make it appear as though the Viet Cong had done it them­selves. The ratio­nale was that the Viet Cong would see that oth­er Viet Cong had killed their own and . . . make alle­giance with us. The good guys. “. . . .” Chaos: Charles Man­son, the CIA, and the Secret His­to­ry of the Six­ties by Tom O’Neill; p. 228.

Exem­pli­fy­ing the fusion of CIA, Oper­a­tion Phoenix and the Los Ange­les law enforce­ment estab­lish­ment, Lieu­tenant Edward Her­rmann helped cre­ate a coun­terin­sur­gency pro­gram in L.A. and Cal­i­for­nia as a whole, inte­grat­ed and coor­di­nat­ed with fed­er­al intel­li­gence and law enforce­ment agen­cies.

Edward Her­rman:

1.–Had a doc­tor­ate in psy­chol­o­gy.
2.–Specialized in quelling insur­gen­cies.
3.–Developed one of the first com­put­er sys­tems to track crim­i­nals and pre­dict vio­lent out­breaks in cities.
4.–Worked for many U.S. intel­li­gence and mil­i­tary agen­cies, includ­ing: the Air Force, the Secret Ser­vice, the Trea­sury Depart­ment, the Pres­i­den­t’s Office of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy, the Insti­tute for Defense Analy­sis, the Defense Indus­tri­al Secu­ri­ty Clear­ance Office, the Defense Depart­men­t’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). 
5.–Appears to have worked for the Phoenix Pro­gram in Viet­nam, using USAID for a cov­er.
6.–Worked for numer­ous defense con­trac­tors includ­ing: Elec­tro-Dash Opti­cal Sys­tems, Sys­tem Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion and Con­trol Data Cor­po­ra­tion.

The con­clud­ing por­tion of the pro­gram con­sists of read­ing and analy­sis of O’Neil­l’s pre­sen­ta­tion of the career of one of the CIA’s most impor­tant MK-Ultra mind con­trol oper­a­tives.

Louis Joly­on West was Jack Ruby’s psy­chi­a­trist, and pre­sent­ed the unten­able hypoth­e­sis that Ruby killed Oswald because he had a brief psy­chomo­tor epilep­tic event in the base­ment of the Dal­las jail. In fact, the evi­dence sug­gests strong­ly that West had helped to erase Ruby’s mem­o­ry of hav­ing killed Oswald.

After detail­ing West­’s involve­ment with Sid­ney Got­tlieb of the CIA and one of the cen­tral fig­ures of its mind con­trol pro­grams, the broad­cast sets forth the mur­der of Chere Jo Hor­ton, a three-year-old girl whose muti­la­tion, rape and mur­der were pinned on 29-year-old Jim­mie Shaver.

An obvi­ous vic­tim of mind con­trol, appar­ent­ly imple­ment­ed in con­sid­er­able mea­sure by Louis Joly­on West, Shaver was pro­grammed to take respon­si­bil­i­ty for the killing, despite enor­mous con­tra­dic­tions in the evi­dence.

Key Points of Dis­cus­sion and analy­sis include:

1.–Shaver’s unusu­al behav­ior and demeanor at the ini­tial scene of the crime: ” . . . . He was shirt­less, cov­ered in blood and scratch­es. Mak­ing no attempt to escape, he let the search par­ty walk him to the edge of the high­way. Bystanders described him as ‘dazed’ and ‘trance-like’ . . . .”
2.–Shaver’s appar­ent lack of aware­ness of the imme­di­ate cir­cum­stances of the crime: ” ‘What’s going on here?’ he asked. He did­n’t seem drunk, but he could­n’t say where he was, how he’d got­ten there, or whose blood was all over him. Mean­while, the search par­ty found Hor­ton’s body in the grav­el pit. Her neck was bro­ken, her legs had been torn open, and she’s been raped. . . .”
3.–” . . . . Around four that morn­ing, an Air Force mar­shal ques­tioned Shaver and two doc­tors exam­ined him, agree­ing he was­n’t drunk. One lat­er tes­ti­fied that he ‘was not nor­mal . . . . he was very com­posed out­side, which I did not expect him to be under these cir­cum­stances.’ . . .”
4.–Shaver did­n’t rec­og­nize his own wife when she came to vis­it him. ” . . . . When his wife came to vis­it, he did­n’t rec­og­nize her. . . .”
Ini­tial­ly, he believed some­one else com­mit­ted the crime. ” . . . . He gave his first state­ment at 10:30 a.m., adamant that anoth­er man was respon­si­ble: he could sum­mon an image of a stranger with blond hair and tat­toos. . . .”
5.–Eventually, he signed a state­ment tak­ing respon­si­bil­i­ty: ” . . . . After the Air Force mar­shal returned to the jail­house, how­ev­er, Shaver signed a sec­ond state­ment tak­ing full respon­si­bil­i­ty. Though he still did­n’t remem­ber any­thing, he rea­soned that he must have done it. . . .”
6.–Enter Jol­ly West: ” . . . . Two months lat­er, in Sep­tem­ber, Shaver’s mem­o­ries still had­n’t returned. The base hos­pi­tal com­man­der told Jol­ly West to per­form an eval­u­a­tion: was he legal­ly sane at the time of the mur­der? Shaver spent the next two weeks under West­’s super­vi­sion . . . While Shaver was under–with West inject­ing more truth serum to ‘deep­en the trance’–Shaver recalled the events of that night. He con­fessed to killing Hor­ton. . . .”
7.–West was a defense wit­ness who, instead, appears to have aid­ed the pros­e­cu­tion: ” . . . . At the tri­al, West argued that Shaver’s truth-serum con­fes­sion was more valid than any oth­er. And West was tes­ti­fy­ing for the defense . . . .”
8.–Shaver’s behav­ior at the tri­al is fur­ther sug­ges­tive of mind con­trol: ” . . . . One news­pa­per account said he ‘sat through the stren­u­ous ses­sions like a man in a trance,’ say­ing noth­ing, nev­er ris­ing to stretch or smoke, though he was a known chain-smok­er. ‘Some believe it’s an act,’ the paper said, ‘oth­ers believe his demeanor is real. . . .”
9.–Shaver’s med­ical records at Lack­land Air Force base had van­ished. ” . . . . But, curi­ous­ly, all the records for patients in 1954 had been main­tained, with one excep­tion: the file for last names begin­ning with ‘Sa’ through ‘St’ had van­ished. . . .”
10.–” . . . . West had used lead­ing ques­tions to walk the entranced Shaver through the crime. ‘Tell me about when you took your clothes off, Jim­my,’ he said. And try­ing to prove that Shaver had repressed mem­o­ries: ‘Jim­my, do you remem­ber when some­thing like this hap­pened before?’ Or: ‘After you took her clothes off, what did you do?’ ‘I nev­er did take her clothes off,’ Shaver said. . . .”
11.–” . . . . The inter­view [with Shaver] was divid­ed into thirds. The mid­dle third, for some rea­son, was­n’t record­ed. When the record picked up, the man­u­script said, ‘Shaver is cry­ing. He has been con­front­ed with all the facts repeat­ed­ly.’ . . .”


Meet the New Boss . . . .

A “New York Times” sto­ry not­ed the make­up of Joe Biden’s team assem­bled to com­bat Covid-19, includ­ing ” . . . . Dr. Luciana Borio, a vice pres­i­dent at In-Q-Tel, which invests in intel­li­gence tech­nol­o­gy, was a mem­ber of Trump’s Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil until he dis­band­ed the office charged with respond­ing to pan­demics and bioter­ror­ism threats, Dr. Michael T. Oster­holm, the direc­tor of the cen­ter for infec­tious Dis­ease Research and Pol­i­cy at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta, advised the George W. Bush admin­is­tra­tion after the 2001 anthrax attacks. . . .” As dis­cussed in FTR #718 (among oth­er pro­grams) In-Q-Tel (at which Dr. Luciano Borio serves as a vice-pres­i­dent) is the CIA’s high tech ven­ture cap­i­tal arm. In FTR #1139, we exam­ined the 2001 anthrax attacks as a pos­si­ble provo­ca­tion, gen­er­at­ing momen­tum for the inva­sion of Iraq and expan­sion of U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare capa­bil­i­ties. Oster­holm launched an enfee­bled rhetor­i­cal attack on Kris New­by’s expose of Lyme Dis­ease as a bio-weapon. We exam­ined Ms. New­by’s expose in FTR #‘s 1135, 1136 and 1137.


FTR #1154 Bio-Psy-Op Apocalypse Now, Part 14: The Yellow Journalism Peril, Part 2

Con­tin­u­ing analy­sis of the weaponized media cov­er­age of both the Covid-19 pan­dem­ic and Chi­na, this pro­gram begins with reprise of infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in our last broad­cast detail­ing the activ­i­ties of Adri­an Zenz, the Ger­man Nazi fel­low-trav­el­er and End Times Chris­t­ian who has become a “Go-To” source on Chi­na for West­ern media. 

In addi­tion to being cit­ed by the vaunt­ed “New York Times” as a source jus­ti­fy­ing boy­cott of the movie “Mulan,” Zenz is has been ele­vat­ed to the sta­tus of “anthro­pol­o­gist” by the British Guardian in its alle­ga­tions about Tibet being sub­ject to mass labor depor­ta­tions.

(We note in pass­ing that Zenz derives his polit­i­cal grav­i­tas from the milieu of the OUN/B and the SS Gali­cian Divi­sion, and the Dalai Lama him­self has exten­sive his­tor­i­cal and oper­a­tion links with the Nazi SS.)

Much of the pro­gram details the stark real­i­ty of the ASPI–the Aus­tralian Strat­e­gy Pol­i­cy Insti­tute.

Anoth­er “Go-To” source for reports on alleged Chi­nese human rights abus­es, the ASPI is a less-than-objec­tive jour­nal­is­tic source.

Key points of analy­sis and dis­cus­sion of the ASPI include:

1.–The ASPI ” . . . . was found­ed by the Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment in 2001 and is fund­ed by the country’s Depart­ment of Defence. . . .”
2.–The ASPI ” . . . . is spon­sored by a host of weapons man­u­fac­tur­ers, includ­ing Raytheon Aus­tralia, Lock­heed Mar­tin, Northrop Grum­man, MBDA Mis­sile Sys­tems, Saab AB, Thales, and Austalia. . . .”
3.–In addi­tion, the ASPI has ” . . . . exten­sive sources of for­eign fund­ing, includ­ing the US State Depart­ment, UK For­eign and Com­mon­wealth Office (FCO), gov­ern­ment of Japan, and NATO. . . .”
4.–The above infor­ma­tion has been revealed by ” . . . . Australia’s For­eign Influ­ence Trans­paren­cy Scheme — enact­ed by the cen­ter-right Lib­er­al Par­ty to mon­i­tor alleged threat of ‘Chi­nese polit­i­cal inter­fer­ence’ in the coun­try  . . . .”
5.–” . . . A recent pro­file of ASPI in the Aus­tralian Finan­cial Review notes that the orga­ni­za­tion has ‘been accused of foment­ing anti-Chi­na hys­te­ria, to the alleged ben­e­fit of its bene­fac­tors.’ . . .”
6.–” . . . . ASPI has been so bel­li­cose it has come in for crit­i­cism from major fig­ures in Aus­tralian for­eign pol­i­cy cir­cles. . . .”
7.–” . . . . For­mer Aus­tralian For­eign Min­is­ter Bob Carr has slammed ASPI for push­ing a ‘one-sided, pro-Amer­i­can view of the world’, while the for­mer Aus­tralian ambas­sador to Chi­na Geoff Raby added that ASPI is ‘the archi­tect of the Chi­na threat the­o­ry in Aus­tralia’. . . .”
8.–” . . . . Aus­tralian Sen­a­tor Kim Carr of the Labour Par­ty has echoed the crit­i­cism of ASPI, con­demn­ing the think tank for seek­ing to “pro­mote a new cold war with Chi­na” in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the US. . . . high­light­ing ASPI’s exten­sive fund­ing from the US State Department’s Glob­al Engage­ment Cen­ter, head­ed by for­mer CIA offi­cer and Navy fight­er pilot Lea Gabrielle. . . .”
9.–ASPI sources alle­ga­tions from ” . . . . Bit­ter Win­ter . . . a project of the Cen­ter for Stud­ies on New Reli­gions (CESNUR) . . . .”
10.–Discussed at length in FTR #521, CESNUR (through its Bit­ter Win­ter blog) ” . . . . have vig­or­ous­ly defend­ed fanat­i­cal Chi­nese reli­gious move­ments includ­ing Falun Gong and the Church of the Almighty God, or East­ern Light­ning. . . . East­ern Light­ning is noto­ri­ous for mass kid­nap­pings, assaults, and mur­der­ous vio­lence against per­ceived ‘demons’ or non-believ­ers, includ­ing blud­geon­ing a woman to death for refus­ing to give recruiters her phone num­ber in 2014 . . .”
11.–In addi­tion: ” . . . . CESNUR has also tak­en up the cause of the Japan­ese dooms­day cult, Aum Shin­rikyo which was respon­si­ble for the 1995 Tokyo sarin gas attack. . . .”
Passtime of Mas­si­mo Intro­vi­gne and J. Gor­don Melton of CESNUR

Pro­gram High­lights Include: The nation­al secu­ri­ty connections–American and international–of the Cen­ter for Strate­gic and Inter­na­tion­al Stud­ies, anoth­er source for the Yel­low Jour­nal­ism Per­il; the fas­cist con­nec­tions of Mas­si­mo Intro­vi­gne of CESNUR, includ­ing his links with the P‑2 and Opus Dei milieux, as well as the Latin Amer­i­can fas­cist group Tra­di­tion, Fam­i­ly and Prop­er­ty; the affin­i­ty of Intro­vi­gne and fel­low CESNUR oper­a­tive J. Gor­don Melton for vam­pire cul­ture; advo­ca­cy in a U.S. Navy jour­nal for armed pira­cy against Chi­na.


Gehlen, Nazis, Nuclear War: History of Cold War, Germany, the U.S. and China

A recent “Ger­man For­eign Pol­i­cy” post pro­vides his­tor­i­cal depth and con­text to the Full Court Press against Chi­na. West­ern anti-Chi­na pol­i­cy incor­po­rat­ed and was informed by Third Reich exter­mi­na­tion­ist ide­ol­o­gy and prac­tice. Prepara­to­ry to the planned drop­ping of 34 nuclear war­heads on Chi­na, Nazi East­ern-Front tank com­man­ders work­ing under BND aus­pices helped draw up and coor­di­nate plans for Kuom­intang units to occu­py Chi­na after the nukes were dropped. Work­ing direct­ly with Chi­ang Kai-shek’s son “Wego, for­mer­ly a cadet in the Nazi mil­i­tary,” the Nazi units con­tin­ued their work on Tai­wan. In addi­tion, Nazi SS influ­ence man­i­fest­ed in the show­ing on Ger­man TV of SS doc­u­men­tary films about Tibet, fea­tur­ing footage of Bruno Beger (above right), an SS war crim­i­nal and mem­ber of the Tibetan Gov­ern­ment-in-exile. Vet­er­ans of the Waf­fen SS and Wehrma­cht helped pro­pel the momen­tum of the Uighur “op” in Bavaria.


They’re “Shocked, Shocked”: Reflections on the Debate, GOP, Fascists

FTR #‘s 1146 through 1150 chron­i­cle the syn­chro­nous evo­lu­tion of the con­tem­po­rary GOP, the CIA and the Third Reich. No one should be “Shocked, Shocked” at Trump’s com­ments on white suprema­cists. This post reviews, and excerpts that infor­ma­tion for the con­tem­pla­tion and con­ve­nience of listeners/readers. It was Trump who ulti­mate­ly took over Resorts Inter­na­tion­al. ” . . . Might not the OSS-SS con­nec­tion also throw light on the unex­plained inter­lock between James Cros­by’s com­pa­ny Resorts Inter­na­tion­al, tight­ly con­trolled by the relat­ed and dou­bly inter­mar­ried Cros­by-Mur­phy fam­i­lies, and Cap­i­tal Cities Broad­cast­ing, the major invest­ment of the CIA’s present direc­tor William Casey. (51) Casey would be the log­i­cal per­son to have estab­lished the orig­i­nal con­nec­tion between the Cros­by-Mur­phy fam­i­lies and their mys­te­ri­ous Ger­man-Swiss part­ners. For it was Casey who, in 1944–45, ‘was giv­en over­all oper­a­tional con­trol of [OSS] Ger­man projects,’ and ‘co-ordi­nat­ed . . . the over 150 men’ whom OSS sent into Ger­many. (52) With Dulles, Wis­ner, and For­gan, Casey was also one of the OSS vet­er­ans who lob­bied suc­cess­ful­ly for a CIA which could legit­i­mate­ly uti­lize the resources of the Gehlen Org. . . .”


FTR #1153 Bio-Psy-Op Apocalypse Now, Part 13: The Yellow Journalism Peril, Part 1

The pro­gram begins with detailed analy­sis of an arti­cle from March of 2020. Not­ing anti-Asian and anti-Chi­nese stigma­ti­za­tion in cov­er­age of the ear­ly stages of the Covid-19 out­break, the arti­cle notes pro­pa­gan­dized, inac­cu­rate report­ing by US cor­po­rate media.

In addi­tion to cit­ing the Wuhan coro­n­avirus out­break as demon­strat­ing the weak­ness of Chi­nese governance–the admin­is­tra­tion of pres­i­dent Xi and the com­mu­nist par­ty in particular–the MSM have engaged in out­right mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

Exem­pli­fy­ing that depar­ture from fact is the wall-to-wall cov­er­age of Dr. Li Wen­liang and the scant men­tion of Dr. Zhang Jix­i­an.

” . . . Vir­tu­al­ly all of cor­po­rate media’s false nar­ra­tive of the coro­n­avirus out­break hinge upon the sto­ry of Li [Wen­liang] being a ‘mar­tyr’ and ‘whistle­blow­er’ who alleged­ly ‘dis­cov­ered’ the coro­n­avirus, but was silenced and ‘arrest­ed’ by gov­ern­ment offi­cials before he could alert the pub­lic. . . .”

In fact, Dr. Li:

1.–Was an oph­thal­mol­o­gist, not a virol­o­gist nor an epi­demi­ol­o­gist.
2.–Did not see him­self as a “whistle­blow­er.”
3.–Misidentified the virus in ques­tion as the SARS virus–a sim­i­lar but dif­fer­ent coro­n­avirus.
4.–Achieved promi­nence after a pri­vate WeChat group that he did not want shared (it sub­se­quent­ly was shared). 
5.–Was not arrest­ed. ” . . . . Nei­ther were Li and his col­leagues ‘arrest­ed,’ as sev­er­al sen­sa­tion­al­ist reports false­ly claimed with­out issu­ing retrac­tions . . .”
6.–” . . . . was tak­en in by police and ques­tioned after telling for­mer class­mates about a clus­ter of pneu­mo­nia cas­es. An ear­li­er ver­sion of this arti­cle mis­tak­en­ly said Dr. Li Wen­liang had been arrest­ed. Li  was told by the police on Jan­u­ary 3 not to spread unver­i­fi­able rumors—after a screen­shot was leaked on Decem­ber 31—because false infor­ma­tion could set off unnec­es­sary pan­ic dur­ing the Spring Fes­ti­val (one of the busiest and most impor­tant hol­i­days of the year), as at the time there had been no fatal­i­ties and no clear evi­dence of human-to-human trans­mis­sion. . . .”

Dr. Zhang Jix­i­an was the real “discoverer“of what is now called SARS Cov‑2–the virus that caus­es the dis­ease. ” . . . . the Red Scare cov­er­age above com­plete­ly erased the fact that the ‘whis­tle’ had already been blown by Dr. Zhang Jix­i­an, the first doc­tor to report the nov­el coro­n­avirus to health author­i­ties on Decem­ber 27, which result­ed in an announce­ment by the Chi­nese Cen­ter for Dis­ease Con­trol (CDC) and the Wuhan Health Com­mis­sion (WHC) ear­li­er on Decem­ber 30, the same day Li texted his sev­en col­leagues . . . . Zhang wasn’t sup­pressed by the gov­ern­ment, but rather com­mend­ed for her efforts. . . .”

Next, we high­light Wash­ing­ton Post writer Josh Rogin, a high-pro­file expo­nent of the “Chi­nese lab did it” meme about Covid-19. Rogin’s source–misidentified as a “sci­en­tist,” is a long-time anti-Chi­nese gov­ern­ment activist financed by the Nation­al Endow­ment For Democ­ra­cy, a US intel­li­gence cut-out and regime-change vehi­cle co-found­ed by CIA direc­tor William Casey in the ear­ly 1980’s. 

The New Cold War is man­i­fest­ing some fea­tures of McCarthy­ism. Rely­ing on innu­en­do by an “ex” CIA offi­cer, Fox News host Tuck­er Carl­son inti­mat­ed that lead­ing Demo­c­ra­t­ic politi­cians might be agents of the Chi­nese intel­li­gence ser­vice.

A New York Times arti­cle that tout­ed calls to boy­cott the Dis­ney film “Mulan” failed to note how the Uyghur “inde­pen­dence” move­ment is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence, as well as a pot­pour­ri of fas­cists of var­i­ous stripes.

(We detailed these links in FTR #‘s 1143, 1144, and 1145. These pro­grams fea­tured two arti­cles from The Gray­zone.)

The polit­i­cal her­itage of Adri­an Zenz. Cel­e­bra­tion of the 75th Anniver­sary of the 14th Waf­fen SS Divi­sion in Lviv, Ukraine.

Com­men­tary in the Times arti­cle came from, among oth­ers, Adri­an Zenz, a Nazi fel­low-trav­el­er, Ger­man-born End Times Chris­t­ian, doc­tri­naire anti-fem­i­nist and anti-gay ide­o­logue.

Zen­z’s promi­nence as an “expert” on the Uyghurs comes by virtue of his posi­tion with the Vic­tims of Com­mu­nism Memo­r­i­al Foun­da­tion, ” . . . . an out­growth of the Nation­al Cap­tive Nations Com­mit­tee, a group found­ed by Ukrain­ian nation­al­ist Lev Dobri­an­sky to lob­by against any effort for detente with the Sovi­et Union. Its co-chair­man, Yaroslav Stet­sko, was a top leader of the fas­cist OUN‑B mili­tia that fought along­side Nazi Ger­many dur­ing its occu­pa­tion of Ukraine in World War Two. . . .”

Now, Adri­an Zenz is not only an expert on Xin­jiang, but on Tibet as well. He is also, an “anthro­pol­o­gist,” hav­ing been so-anoint­ed by The Guardian. Not­ing Zen­z’s affil­i­a­tion with the Vic­tims of Com­mu­nism Memo­r­i­al Foundation–a deriv­a­tive of the OUN/B milieu we have cov­ered for decades–it is worth tak­ing stock of the fact that the Dalai Lama was tutored by an SS offi­cer and fea­tured Bruno Beger as a mem­ber of the Tibetan Gov­ern­ment in Exile.

A par­tic­i­pant of the SS mis­sion to Tibet in 1938, Beger was a war crim­i­nal, hav­ing ordered the exe­cu­tion of more than 100 Sovi­et POWs who had “asi­at­ic” fea­tures.

The Dalai Lama’s asso­ci­a­tions are unnerv­ing, count­ing numer­ous fas­cists among his friends and col­leagues.


2000 Redux: Baker Botts and The Supreme Court

If, as seems alto­geth­er prob­a­ble, Amy Coney Bar­rett is con­firmed to sit on the Supreme Court, there will be three judges on SCOTUS that worked for Bak­er Botts on the Flori­da recount that gave Dubya the Pres­i­den­cy in the 2000 elec­tion. John Roberts is now Chief Jus­tice. Brett Kavanaugh also worked on the Flori­da deba­cle for Bak­er Botts. We should not for­get that Trump aide and long-time GOP dirty trick­ster Roger Stone [right] led the so-called “Brooks Broth­ers Riot” that helped shut down the Dade Coun­ty vote recount.


What’s Wrong With These Pictures?

Mr. Emory began his polit­i­cal broad­cast­ing odyssey research­ing the assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy. With so much atten­tion focused on polic­ing and the meth­ods there­of, it is inter­est­ing to ana­lyze one of the most dis­cussed aspects of the imme­di­ate Dealey Plaza crime scene. Short­ly after the killing, three “tran­sients” were tak­en into cus­tody by the Dal­las Police (or indi­vid­u­als dressed like Dal­las cops). The three were appre­hend­ed behind the grassy knoll, from which at least one shot is believed to have orig­i­nat­ed. There has been much spec­u­la­tion about who they actu­al­ly were. We sus­pect that–whoever they actu­al­ly were–they were involved with the assas­si­na­tion in some respect. What is strik­ing is the casu­al demeanor of the arrest­ing offi­cers and the fact that none of the sus­pects were hand­cuffed! In addi­tion, the “Dal­las police­men” are tak­ing the sus­pects to the Sher­if­f’s Office, which is extra­or­di­nar­i­ly unusu­al. These men were appre­hend­ed in the con­text of the mur­der of the Pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States! Look at the offi­cers. A casu­al observ­er would nev­er guess the grav­i­ty of the sit­u­a­tion. Just imag­ine what these pic­tures would look like if the “three tramps” were African-Amer­i­can “tran­sients”!


FTR #1150 The Space Plane and Covid-19: The Paperclip Legacy, Part 5

This pro­gram com­pletes the line of inquiry we under­took in FTR #‘s 1146, 1147, 1148 and 1149. Most impor­tant­ly, we bring the evo­lu­tion of events and insti­tu­tions up to the present. Lis­ten­ers who digest the pro­grams in the future should bear in mind that these pro­grams were record­ed dur­ing, and in the imme­di­ate after­math of, the 2020 GOP con­ven­tion.

After review­ing infor­ma­tion about Nixon con­fi­dante Bebe Rebo­zo and the links of his bank to the dead­ly Bor­mann net­work, we con­tin­ue with the unpub­lished man­u­script from which we read in our last pro­gram. The broad­cast high­lights inter­ac­tions between the Nixon admin­is­tra­tion, Bebe Rebo­zo, a mys­te­ri­ous and alleged­ly orga­nized-crime con­nect­ed com­pa­ny called Resorts Inter­na­tion­al, an even more mys­te­ri­ous sub­sidiary of Resorts Inter­na­tion­al called the Par­adise Island Bridge Com­pa­ny and the Dewey, Dulles, Nazi, William Casey milieu that is cen­tral to this dis­cus­sion.

The Par­adise Island Bridge Com­pa­ny’s direc­tors are sug­ges­tive of a pos­si­ble Bor­mann link: ” . . . . It did, how­ev­er, name a num­ber of Ger­man and Swiss investors, One of these, for exam­ple, was Dr. Heinz Ros­terg of Lau­sanne, a for­mer ‘prin­ci­pal stock­hold­er’ and direc­tor of the Win­ter­shall potash con­cern; Win­ter­shall was one of the major sub­sidiaries of BASF, the largest sin­gle suc­ces­sor firm to I.G. Far­ben. . . . .”

The man­u­script sets forth spec­u­la­tion about the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Mary Carter Paint/Resorts Inter­na­tion­al may have gen­er­at­ed funds that greased the wheels for the release of many Nazi war crim­i­nals. ” . . . . Still unan­swered is the ques­tion of whether the sto­ry of the Dewey-Allen Dulles inter­est in Resorts should have referred to funds, not from the CIA itself, but from its Ger­man-Swiss part­ners in the Par­adise Island Bridge Com­pa­ny. Such a hypoth­e­sis might explain some of the many strange coin­ci­dences which sur­round the com­pa­ny’s con­tro­ver­sial his­to­ry. It might, for exam­ple, explain the ‘for­tune in legal fees’ that Mary Carter Paint, on the advice of Thomas Dewey, paid to Allen Dulles’ long­time law part­ner David Peck. (48) The SS-OSS con­nec­tion cer­tain­ly had rea­son to be grate­ful to David Peck. It was on the basis of Peck­’s rec­om­men­da­tion, as chair­man of a three-man advi­so­ry board to review all the Nurem­berg sen­tences, that John J. McCloy com­mut­ed to time served the sen­tence of Sko­rzeny’s post-war employ­er, Baron Alfried Krupp, and eight of his col­leagues, and also ordered Krup­p’s prop­er­ty to be restored. (49) The release of Krupp and oth­er indus­tri­al­ists ful­filled an ear­li­er demand to McCloy from Her­mann Abs, who him­self nar­row­ly escaped pros­e­cu­tion at Nurem­berg. Abs was the first post-war chair­man of BASF, the I.G. Far­ben suc­ces­sor com­pa­ny rep­re­sent­ed among the stock­hold­ers of the Par­adise Island Bridge Com­pa­ny. (50) . . . .”

William Casey

The author also engages in spec­u­la­tion about the rela­tion­ship between Resorts Inter­na­tion­al and Cap­i­tal Cities Broad­cast­ing. The lat­ter is the com­pa­ny that bought out ABC in the mid 1980’s and whose largest stock­hold­er was William Casey. ” . . . . Might not the OSS-SS con­nec­tion also throw light on the unex­plained inter­lock between James Cros­by’s com­pa­ny Resorts Inter­na­tion­al, tight­ly con­trolled by the relat­ed and dou­bly inter­mar­ried Cros­by-Mur­phy fam­i­lies, and Cap­i­tal Cities Broad­cast­ing, the major invest­ment of the CIA’s present direc­tor William Casey. (51) Casey would be the log­i­cal per­son to have estab­lished the orig­i­nal con­nec­tion between the Cros­by-Mur­phy fam­i­lies and their mys­te­ri­ous Ger­man-Swiss part­ners. For it was Casey who, in 1944–45, ‘was giv­en over­all oper­a­tional con­trol of [OSS] Ger­man projects,’ and ‘co-ordi­nat­ed . . . the over 150 men’ whom OSS sent into Ger­many. (52) With Dulles, Wis­ner, and For­gan, Casey was also one of the OSS vet­er­ans who lob­bied suc­cess­ful­ly for a CIA which could legit­i­mate­ly uti­lize the resources of the Gehlen Org. (53) . . .”

The “unex­plained inter­lock” between Resorts Inter­na­tion­al and Cap­i­tal Cities is described by the author: ” . . . . James Cros­by’s cousin and broth­er-in-law, Thomas S. Mur­phy, was in 1964, the Exec­u­tive Vice-Pres­i­dent and a direc­tor of Cap­i­tal Cities, as well as a direc­tor of Mary Carter Paint. Low­ell Thomas, a long-time radio broad­cast­er with intel­li­gence con­nec­tions, was a direc­tor of both com­pa­nies. At the time, William Casey was an offi­cer, direc­tor, and major stock­hold­er of Cap­i­tal Cities. . . .”

Trump kept a copy of this by his bed­side for late-night read­ing.

After James Cros­by’s “unex­pect­ed” death in April of 1986, Don­ald Trump–whose oper­a­tions are bankrolled by Deutsche Bank–purchased the com­pa­ny. Fol­low­ing lit­i­ga­tion with Merv Grif­fin, the assets were divid­ed with the tele­vi­sion per­son­al­i­ty. ”  . . . . Real estate devel­op­er Don­ald Trump, who owned two Atlantic City casi­nos, beat out sev­er­al oth­er bid­ders to pur­chase a con­trol­ling stake in the com­pa­ny from Cros­by’s fam­i­ly for $79 mil­lion in July 1987.[26] Trump was appoint­ed chair­man of Resorts Inter­na­tion­al, and said he would com­plete the Taj Mahal in about a year. . . . The two ulti­mate­ly reached a set­tle­ment, which was exe­cut­ed in Novem­ber 1988, with Grif­fin pur­chas­ing the com­pa­ny for $365 mil­lion, and Trump pur­chas­ing the Taj Mahal from the com­pa­ny for $273 mil­lion. . . .”

Pro­gram High­lights Include:

1.–Discussion of Cap­i­tal Cities Broad­cast­ing’s acqui­si­tion of ABC fol­low­ing the CIA’s fil­ing of a “fair­ness doc­trine” com­plaint against the com­pa­ny for their cov­er­age of Bish­op, Bald­win, Rewald, Dilling­ham and Wong. Ron Rewald alleged that he and the firm for which he worked front­ed for CIA. (At the time William Casey was head of CIA and Cap­i­tal Cities largest stock­hold­er.)
2.–The fact that Thomas Dewey, two time GOP can­di­date for Pres­i­dent, was one of the founders of Cap­i­tal Cities. The gen­e­sis of the Nazi branch of the GOP was Dewey’s 1948 cam­paign.
3.–Review of William Casey’s career, includ­ing the posi­tions he held in the Nixon admin­is­tra­tion and his involve­ment with the Black Eagle Trust, which evolved from the Gold­en Lily plun­der acquired by Japan after World War II.
4.–Discussion of Attor­ney Gen­er­al William Bar­r’s back­ground in the CIA, includ­ing his role in George H.W. Bush’s par­don of key play­ers in the Iran-Con­tra scan­dal.
5.–Analysis of Bar­r’s father Don­ald Barr and his work for the OSS in World War II, which may have inter­sect­ed with the machi­na­tions of Dulles, Dono­van, Casey and the Nazi “Oper­a­tion Sun­rise” par­tic­i­pants.
6.–Donald Bar­r’s hir­ing of col­lege dropout Jef­frey Epstein to teach at the Dal­ton School.
7.–Donald Bar­r’s author­ship of a sci­ence fic­tion novel–Space Relations–about a plan­et dom­i­nat­ed by oli­garchs and dri­ven by sex­u­al slav­ery.
8.–Review of a deci­sive strat­a­gem of the Under­ground Reich, enun­ci­at­ed by Army offi­cer Glenn Pinch­back in a let­ter to New Orleans D.A. Jim Gar­ri­son. Pinch­back wrote of a ” . . . . ‘Neo-Nazi plot to enslave Amer­i­ca in the name of anti-Com­mu­nism,’ . . .”
9.–In past pro­grams, we have briefly not­ed that mil­i­tary and [osten­si­bly] civil­ian pro­grams offi­cial­ly involved with “epi­dem­ic pre­ven­tion” might con­ceal clan­des­tine bio­log­i­cal war­fare appli­ca­tions designed to cre­ate epi­demics. The offi­cial dis­tinc­tion between “offen­sive” and “defen­sive” bio­log­i­cal war­fare research is aca­d­e­m­ic. In that con­text, one should note that the offi­cial title of Unit 731, the noto­ri­ous Japan­ese bio­log­i­cal war­fare unit was “the Epi­dem­ic Pre­ven­tion and Water Purifi­ca­tion Depart­ment of the Kwan­tung Army.” Unit 731’s research was incor­po­rat­ed into the U.S. bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram at the end of World War II.
10.–Noteworthy in that gen­er­al con­text is the obser­va­tion by Jonathan King (pro­fes­sor of mol­e­c­u­lar biol­o­gy at MIT), that Pen­ta­gon research into the appli­ca­tion of genet­ic engi­neer­ing to bio­log­i­cal war­fare could be masked as vac­cine research, which sounds “defen­sive.”


The “Mulan” Furor (Fuehrer?): Spooks, Fascists, Nazis and “The New York Times”

In pre­vi­ous pro­grams, we have not­ed that the Uyghur “inde­pen­dence” move­ment is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence, as well as a pot­pour­ri of fas­cists of var­i­ous stripes. A “New York Times” arti­cle posi­tions Adri­an Zenz as an author­i­ty on the Uyghurs. Zen­z’s promi­nence as an “expert” on the Uyghurs comes by virtue of his posi­tion with the Vic­tims of Com­mu­nism Memo­r­i­al Foun­da­tion, ” . . . . an out­growth of the Nation­al Cap­tive Nations Com­mit­tee, a group found­ed by Ukrain­ian nation­al­ist Lev Dobri­an­sky to lob­by against any effort for detente with the Sovi­et Union. Its co-chair­man, Yaroslav Stet­sko, was a top leader of the fas­cist OUN‑B mili­tia that fought along­side Nazi Ger­many dur­ing its occu­pa­tion of Ukraine in World War Two. . . .” OUN/B’s founder was Stepan Ban­dera, pic­tured at right. Just as the Net­work of Chi­nese Human Rights Defend­ers based their report on inter­views with eight indi­vid­u­als out of a pop­u­la­tion of 20 mil­lion, Zenz based his esti­mate on a sin­gle report by a TV sta­tion that broad­casts mate­r­i­al from Al-Qae­da and ISIS-linked ele­ments and indi­vid­u­als: ” . . . . Zenz arrived at his esti­mate ‘over 1 mil­lion’ in a dubi­ous man­ner. He based it on a sin­gle report by Istiqlal TV, a Uyghur exile media orga­ni­za­tion based in Turkey . . . . Far from an impar­tial jour­nal­is­tic orga­ni­za­tion, Istiqlal TV advances the sep­a­ratist cause while play­ing host to an assort­ment of extrem­ist fig­ures. One such char­ac­ter who often appears on Istiqlal TV is Abdulka­dir Yapuquan, a report­ed leader of the East Turkestan Islam­ic Move­ment (ETIM), a sep­a­ratist group that aims to estab­lish an inde­pen­dent home­land in Xin­jiang called East Turkestan. . . . ETIM has been des­ig­nat­ed as a ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tion with ties to al-Qae­da by the US, Euro­pean Union, and UN Secu­ri­ty Council’s Al-Qai­da Sanc­tions Com­mit­tee. The Asso­ci­at­ed Press has report­ed that since ‘2013, thou­sands of Uighurs… have trav­eled to Syr­ia to train with the Uighur mil­i­tant group Turk­istan Islam­ic Par­ty and fight along­side al-Qai­da,’ with ‘sev­er­al hun­dred join[ing] the Islam­ic State.’ . . .”
