How Hip Can You Get? Grover Norquist Heads to Burning Man

Pre­vi­ous­ly, we have mused about GOP pro­mo­tion for the Burn­ing Man Arts Fes­ti­val and the pos­si­bil­i­ty that “Haight Ash­bury II”–as we dubbed it–might actu­al­ly be anoth­er “op” with ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty and orga­nized crime col­lab­o­rat­ing to exper­i­ment on the unwit­ting adher­ents of the so-called counter-cul­ture. Now, we learn that none oth­er than Grover Norquist is plan­ning on attend­ing this year’s gath­er­ing.

Were there Nazis in Atlantis? The Gospel According to Ramtha (aka J.Z. Knight)

J.Z. Knight has built a suc­cess­ful orga­ni­za­tion by claim­ing to chan­nel an ancient “Atlantean/Lemurian” War­rior named Ramtha. In addi­tion to lubri­cat­ing the spir­i­tu­al cog­ni­tion of her acolytes with copi­ous amounts of wine, Knight/Ramtha has dis­sem­i­nat­ed pro­found­ly dis­parag­ing views of var­i­ous groups, includ­ing gays, Mex­i­cans, Jews and organ­ic farm­ers. Knight/Ramtha’s views have found res­o­nance on the Storm­front web­site, arguably the lead­ing neo-Nazi and white suprema­cist web­site.

FTR #764 Bit[coin]burg, Part 2, The Snowden-Inspired, Bitcoin-operated Online Murder Incorporated

NB: this descrip­tion con­tains infor­ma­tion not includ­ed in the orig­i­nal broad­cast. In FTR #760, we exam­ined the tech­no-lib­er­tar­i­an, Lud­wig von Mis­es milieu-affil­i­at­ed nature of the bit­coin phe­nom­e­non. Quite pos­si­bly devel­oped by ele­ments of Ger­man intel­li­gence and the Under­ground Reich, bit­coins are not only vul­ner­a­ble to “tape-paint­ing,” but can be stolen by hack­ers. Some­one oper­at­ing under the name “Kuwabakatake San­juro” has begun a bit­coin-fund­ed, online assas­si­na­tion con­sor­tium called “The Assas­si­na­tion Mar­ket.” His project was inspired by the “dis­clo­sures” of Snow­den.

Alleged Silk Road Inventor a Ron Paul, Ludwig von Mises Fanatic

Alleged mas­ter­mind of the Silk Road online clan­des­tine funding/merchandising net­work, Ross Ulbricht is a devo­tee of Ron Paul and the Lud­wig von Mis­es school of social and eco­nom­ic the­o­ry. Both Ron Paul and the Lud­wig von Mis­es Insti­tute are the polar oppo­site of what their lib­er­tar­i­an adher­ents appear to advo­cate.

The Enigmatic Sven Olaf Kamphuis and the “Cyber-Wandervogel”

The inves­ti­ga­tion into a recent cyber­at­tack has high­light­ed an eccen­tric, bril­liant pro­gram­mer named Sven Olaf Kam­phuis, a cit­i­zen of the Nether­lands. Kam­phuis emphat­i­cal­ly denies that he was in any way involved in the attacks and no charges have been filed. What inter­ests us are some aspects of Mr. Kam­phuis’s out­look that sug­gest the pos­si­bil­i­ty that he might be what we have termed “Cyber-Wan­der­vo­gel.”

Now THAT’s Comedy! Beppe Grillo’s Counter-Culture Fascism

Italy’s recent elec­tions saw the Five Stars Move­ment of come­di­an Beppe Gril­lo win­ning a share of the vote that will enable it to play a key role in form­ing the next coali­tion gov­ern­ment. There are indi­ca­tions of the par­ty’s sym­pa­thy for fas­cism and neo-fas­cism. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, Gril­lo appears to be anti-Semit­ic as well.

Now, About those School Yard Shootings . . .

With the nation and much of the world focused on the grue­some shoot­ings in New­town, Con­nect­cut, we revis­it the top­ic of the school­yard shoot­ings. In past pro­grams, we have not­ed that a num­ber of the [alleged] per­pe­tra­tors of the school shoot­ings have links to Nazi and white suprema­cist groups. A form of ter­ror­ism, these mas­sacres desta­bi­lize soci­ety, lead­ing to the pop­u­lar sen­ti­ment for “order.” Endorsed by some ele­ments of pop­u­lar cul­ture, the school­yard shoot­ings are func­tion­ing in a man­ner anal­o­gous to the Fritz Haar­mann inci­dent in Weimar Ger­many. That ser­i­al mur­der of more than a hun­dred juve­niles, whose corpses were butchered and baked into meat pies, dis­cred­it­ed the author­i­ties of Weimar Ger­many, help­ing to sow sen­ti­ment that would ben­e­fit the Nazis.

“Thrive”: Counter-Culture Fascism in Cinema

The cult film “Thrive,” proves that “anti-Semi­tism is the social­ism of fools” by fus­ing New Age mys­ti­cism and cult “free-ener­gy” mythol­o­gy with Old Age anti-Semit­ic ide­ol­o­gy, pin­ning the world’s trou­bles on the Roth­schilds and Jew­ish con­trol of the finan­cial indus­try.

Haight Ashbury II?: Burning Man Arts Festival and the GOP (“Turn on, Tune in, Burn up!”)

Counter-Cul­ture mega-event Burn­ing Man Arts Fes­ti­val endorsed by ele­ments of GOP, who lob­by on its behalf. Is this the sec­ond com­ing of Haight-Ash­bury, involv­ing intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty exper­i­ment­ing on peo­ple?

Surprise, Surprise! “Occupiers” Tied to Ohio Bomb Plot

Ohio bomb plot­ters linked to “Occu­py Cleve­land.” Are they agents-prova­ca­teurs/in­fil­tra­tors? With indi­ca­tions of fascist/right wing ini­ti­a­tion of “Occu­py” move­ment, might this have been intend­ed from the begin­ning?
