FTR #761 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 7: Why the NSA Should Be Spying on Germany and Its Chancellor

This pro­gram high­lights German/Underground Reich con­nec­tions to both the 9/11 attacks and the Okla­homa City bomb­ing. Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance is Ernst Uhrlau: chief of Ham­burg police at the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the 9/11 cell under sur­veil­lance, appoint­ed coor­di­na­tor of intel­li­gence for the Ger­man chan­cel­lor in 1998 and head of the BND in 2005. The son of Chan­cel­lor Kohl’s chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing and BND may well have been manip­u­lat­ing Mohamed Atta.


The Heinrich Muller “Death” Deception

Not even the War­ren Com­mis­sion would buy this one! A dis­in­for­ma­tion piece is in cir­cu­la­tion claim­ing that Gestapo chief Hein­rich Mueller was alleged­ly iden­ti­fied as hav­ing been killed in Berlin dur­ing the last week of the war. A Los Ange­les Times piece from 2001 notes archival infor­ma­tion that Mueller was cap­tured by Amer­i­can troops at the end of the war. We have dealt at length with Mueller’s post­war work as secu­ri­ty direc­tor for the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.


Memo to Merkel: Get a Grip!

It should come as no sur­prise that the NSA would tar­get Ger­many as a “hot spot” for elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance. We call atten­tion to Ernst Uhrlau, chief of police in Ham­burg dur­ing the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, lat­er spe­cial advis­er to Chan­cel­lor Hel­mut Kohl on intel­li­gence mat­ters (the son of whose chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing), and even­tu­al­ly head of the BND!

Russell Brand Finds out Who’s Boss

A recent inci­dent at a GQ par­ty high­lights the role of Third Reich vet­er­ans and mon­ey in the con­tem­po­rary Ger­man econ­o­my. Come­di­an Rus­sell Brand was thrown out of an awards cer­e­mo­ny for tak­ing note of the Nazi links of Hugo Boss, the founder of the glob­al cloth­ing giant that car­ries his name. Boss began mak­ing uni­forms for the Nazis in the mid-twen­ties. Join­ing the Nazi Par­ty two years before Hitler’s ascen­sion, Hugo Boss pros­pered mak­ing uni­forms for the SS among oth­er Nazi par­ty for­ma­tions. After the com­mence­ment of hos­til­i­ties, his com­pa­ny made uni­forms for the army. Adolf Dassler, founder of Adi­das, also had a Nazi back­ground. So did his broth­er Rudolf, founder of Puma.

Getting in Dutch: The Third Reich and the Royal Family of the Netherlands (“A Prince Too Far”)

Gen­er­a­tions of the Nether­lands’ Roy­al Fam­i­ly link to the Third Reich and its post­war man­i­fes­ta­tions. Prince Bern­hard was SS, an IG Far­ben spy and a trai­tor to the Allied Cause. Was he “the Trai­tor of Arn­hem?”


Memorial Day Post: The Past Isn’t Dead and Buried, It Isn’t even Past

As Amer­i­ca remem­bers its dead from fall­en wars, it is incum­bent upon us to remem­ber what caused those wars, and for what ideals our sol­diers fought. The polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic forces that pre­cip­i­tat­ed World War II are only too much with us today, and the com­men­tary by Dorothy Thomp­son and James Stew­art Mar­tin has nev­er been more rel­e­vant.


Nazis Shaping Postwar German Government? No Kidding!

Even Der Spiegel can write about it, now! Third Reich alum­ni in the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many.

As refresh­ing as it is to see the Ger­man gov­ern­ment and main­stream press final­ly con­fronting this issue, the sto­ry is “mod­i­fied lim­it­ed hang­out.”


R.I.P. Andy Rooney

Andy Rooney, the late cur­mud­geon of CBS’ “60 Min­utes,” was a col­league of Paul Man­ning dur­ing WWII. Flew com­bat mis­sions to cov­er the air war in Europe.


FTR #688 Darkness in the Vaults

Glob­al finan­cial sys­tem pred­i­cat­ed on tril­lions of dol­lars in wealth stolen by the Axis in WWII; “vic­to­ri­ous” allies shared in the spoils; the rule of law is total­ly dis­card­ed in order to pre­serve the sta­tus quo and the secre­cy that sur­rounds it.


Repost: FTR #273 “B” as in “Bush,” “B” as in “Bormann”

Evi­dence that the Bush fam­i­ly may be the Amer­i­can point ele­ment of the remark­able and dead­ly Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion.
