FTR #925 Painting Oswald “Red,” Part 1

One of the nick­names Mr. Emory has bestowed upon “Eddie the Friend­ly Spook” Snow­den is “The Obverse Oswald.” Where­as Lee Har­vey Oswald was a U.S. intel­li­gence offi­cer infil­trat­ed into the Sovi­et Union, repa­tri­at­ed and infil­trat­ed into left­ist orga­ni­za­tions, giv­en a “left cov­er” and then framed for the assas­si­na­tion of J.F.K. (and killed before he could exon­er­ate him­self), Snow­den has been infil­trat­ed into Rus­sia and por­trayed as a hero. Snow­den, like Oswald, is involved in an “op.”
Just as Oswald was “paint­ed Red,” Rus­sia appears to have been framed in the U.S. media for the hack of the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Nation­al Com­mit­tee and the non-hack of NSA cyber­weapons by the so-called Shad­ow Bro­kers.

In this first of two pro­grams, we review the process of “paint­ing Oswald Red,” by way of gain­ing his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive on the Snow­den “op” and the fram­ing of Rus­sia for the high-pro­file hacks in the New Cold War.

After review­ing par­tic­u­lars con­cern­ing the fram­ing of Rus­sia for the hacks, we detail the fram­ing of Lee Har­vey Oswald and the Sovi­et Union for the assas­si­na­tion of Stephan Ban­dera, the head of the fas­cist Ukrain­ian OUN/B.

Sup­pos­ed­ly exe­cut­ed by the KGB, the killing was almost cer­tain­ly done by the West, with the BND being the most like­ly agency involved.

Ele­ments of the W.A.C.C.F.L. (the fore­run­ner of the World Anti-Com­mu­nist League) dis­sem­i­nat­ed the dis­in­for­ma­tion that Oswald was trained by the same KGB sub-group that man­aged Bog­dan Stashyn­sky, the killer of Ban­dera.

After Oswald returned to the U.S., he was infil­trat­ed into the Fair Play For Cuba Com­mit­tee (he was its only New Orleans mem­ber). Oswald’s alleged pro-Cas­tro stance received con­sid­er­able expo­sure as a result of an inter­view he did with WDSU in New Orleans. That inter­view, arranged by the Infor­ma­tion Coun­cil of the Amer­i­c­as, fea­tured Oswald dis­cussing his Marx­ist sym­pa­thies and his “defec­tion” to the Sovi­et Union.

The Infor­ma­tion Coun­cil of the Amer­i­c­as had close links to the U.S. intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty. The net effect of the paint­ing of Oswald Red was to moti­vate lib­er­als and Pres­i­dent John­son to cov­er-up the truth con­cern­ing the assas­si­na­tion, out of fear that if the Amer­i­can pub­lic believed that Kennedy was killed as a result of a Com­mu­nist con­spir­a­cy, it could lead to a Third World War.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Oswald’s WDSU gaffe in which he dis­closed his rela­tion­ship with the U.S. gov­ern­ment while in the U.S.S.R.; the high­ly unlike­ly fact that alleged K.G.B. oper­a­tive Stashyn­sky had the bro­ken key to Bandera’s apart­ment in his pos­ses­sion when he went to tri­al two years lat­er; the equal­ly unlike­ly propo­si­tion that the oth­er half of the bro­ken key was still in the lock of Bandera’s apart­ment two years lat­er!


FTR #924 Technocratic Fascism, the High-Profile Hacks and The Obverse Oswald: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

Con­tin­u­ing our analy­sis of the high-pro­file hacks and “Team Snow­den,” we begin with analy­sis of some cryp­tic tweets that Snow­den issued, short­ly before the “Shad­ow Bro­kers” announced their pil­fer­ing of NSA cyber­weapons. The pos­si­bil­i­ty that the tweets were a sig­nal to release the infor­ma­tion is one to be con­sid­ered.

Much of the pro­gram reviews key points of infor­ma­tion from FTR #923 and oth­er broad­casts: Rus­sia appears to have been wrong­ly fin­gered for the DNC hack released by Wik­iLeaks; the Shad­ow Bro­kers’ sup­posed hack of the NSA’s servers does not appear to have been a hack at all but the work of an insid­er who down­loaded the files onto a USB dri­ve; the files offered up by the Shad­ow Bro­kers were from 2013, when Snow­den under­took his oper­a­tion.

Snow­den has sup­port­ed the cov­er sto­ry for the NSA non-hack–that it was, indeed, a hack (it prob­a­bly was­n’t) and that Rus­sia was behind it, which was prob­a­bly not the case.

A chief sus­pect in the release of the NSA files is Jacob Apple­baum, the Wik­iLeak­er who appears to have facil­i­tat­ed Snow­den’s jour­ney from Hawaii to Hong Kong. The pro­gram reviews Apple­baum’s hos­til­i­ty to Hillary Clin­ton, com­par­ing it to the so-called “Shad­ow Bro­kers’ ” hos­til­i­ty to Clin­ton, echo­ing the views of Trump, Assange and Apple­baum. The broad­cast reviews the fact that the “Shad­ow Bro­kers” used an e‑mail account in Ger­many that has been recal­ci­trant to attempts at pen­e­trat­ing its users’ infor­ma­tion.

The pro­gram reviews Apple­baum’s pres­ence in Ger­many, along with oth­er key mem­bers of the WikiLeaks/Team Snow­den cadre.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of the fact that Snow­den (at the time he set out to sub­vert the NSA), Apple­baum and oth­er high-pro­file “pri­va­cy activists” have doc­u­ment­ed links to the CIA; a look at Don­ald Trump, Jr. who has been active in tweet­ing and re-tweet­ing “Alt.right” racist and anti-Semit­ic memes; Trump, Jr.‘s expressed will­ing­ness to run for office.


FTR #923 The Obverse Oswald and the High Profile Hacks: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook (Weighing in for The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 2)

Sup­ple­ment­ing and sum­ming up the exhaus­tive “Eddie the Friend­ly Spook” series, this pro­gram sets forth the Snow­den “psy-op” and the high-pro­file hacks against the back­ground of Lee Har­vey Oswald, the U.S. spy infil­trat­ed into the Sovi­et Union and then into left­ist orga­ni­za­tions in the Unit­ed States. Oswald was framed for JFK’s assas­si­na­tion and then killed before he could defend him­self.

Where­as Oswald was por­trayed as a vil­lain, Eddie the Friend­ly Spook’s oper­a­tion is the obverse, with Snow­den decamp­ing first to Chi­na and then to Rus­sia, and being por­trayed as a hero.

Snow­den is not only a spy but a fas­cist, who advo­cates the elim­i­na­tion of Social Secu­ri­ty and the return to the gold stan­dard.

Snow­den’s Russ­ian sojourn appears to have been arranged by Wik­iLeaks, which also appears to have arranged his flight to Chi­na from Hawaii. (Snow­den’s jour­ney to Hawaii appears to have been facil­i­tat­ed by Jacob Apple­baum, who may be behind the “Shad­ow Bro­kers” alleged hack of NSA cyber­weapons.) It was Snow­den’s jour­ney to Moscow that threw Oba­ma’s “reboot” with Rus­sia under the bus.

In this pro­gram, we exam­ine infor­ma­tion indi­cat­ing that Rus­sia has been framed for the “Shad­ow Bro­kers” alleged hack of the NSA, much as it appears to have been framed for the DNC hack. Indeed, with both the DNC hack and the “Shad­ow Bro­kers” non-hack of the NSA, the evi­dence points increas­ing­ly toward “Team Snow­den” and Eddie the Friend­ly Spook him­self.

In that con­text, we again point to “The Obverse Oswald.” We strong­ly sus­pect that “Team Snow­den” may have had some­thing to do with this. Snow­den is in Rus­sia and work­ing for a com­put­er firm. The (frankly lame) fram­ing of Rus­sia for the DNC hack and the “Shad­ow Bro­kers” non-hack of the NSA reminds us of the process of “paint­ing Oswald Red.” After review­ing infor­ma­tion about the polit­i­cal, ide­o­log­i­cal and rhetor­i­cal con­ti­nu­ity between Ron Paul (Snow­den’s and Julian Assange’s Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of choice), David Duke and Don­ald Trump and his “alt.right” asso­ciates, the pro­gram reviews the appar­ent­ly deep and ongo­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion between Julian Assange, Wik­iLeaks and Don­ald Trump’s dirty tricks spe­cial­ist Roger Stone.

The pro­gram reviews at length the over­whelm­ing prob­a­bil­i­ty that Rus­sia was framed for the DNC hacks. Tack­ling the “Shad­ow Bro­kers’ ” pen­e­tra­tion of NSA cyber­weapons tech­nol­o­gy, we note that the evi­dence that this was done by Rus­sia is very poor. The bit­coin auc­tion­ing of the cyber­weapons is extreme­ly unlike­ly, as is the pub­lic announce­ment of the so-called “hack.” In addi­tion, the announce­ment of the so-called “hack” is done in a com­i­cal bro­ken Eng­lish, rem­i­nis­cent of the Boris and Natasha car­toon char­ac­ters from the ear­ly 1960’s.

Next, the pro­gram sets forth the hypoth­e­sis that, rather than a “hack,” this was more like­ly an insid­er pen­e­tra­tion of NSA and down­load­ing of the files onto a USB stick. Long­time NSA observ­er James Bam­ford points a fin­ger of sus­pi­cion at Jacob Apple­baum, the Wik­iLeak­er who appears to have facil­i­tat­ed Snow­den’s flight from Hawaii to Hong Kong. Apple­baum is a res­olute oppo­nent of Hillary Clin­ton, and the Shad­ow Bro­kers’ bro­ken Eng­lish tar­get­ed the Demo­c­ra­t­ic nom­i­nee as well.

It is more than a lit­tle inter­est­ing that Edward Snow­den has gone on record say­ing that Rus­sia was behind this event and that it was a hack. The evi­dence of Rus­sia being behind the Shad­ow Bro­kers and this event being a “hack” is very poor. Nonethe­less, Snow­den is giv­ing cre­dence to the cov­er sto­ry for this event.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: The use of a Ger­man e‑mail provider that has been resis­tant to gov­ern­ment attempts at trans­paren­cy; review of the pres­ence in Ger­many of Apple­baum, Sarah Har­ri­son (Assange’s for­mer girl­friend and the woman who assist­ed Snow­den’s flight from Hong Kong to Moscow), Lau­ra Poitras (close asso­ciate of Snow­den and Glenn Green­wald) and Peter Sunde (who found­ed the Pirate Bay site on which Wik­iLeaks ini­ti­tial­ly held forth); rumi­na­tion about the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Snow­den and Apple­baum may have col­lab­o­rat­ed in the con­text of the “Shad­ow Bro­kers;” review of the links between the CIA-derived Broad­cast­ing Board of Gov­er­nors and Jacob Apple­baum; review of Eddie Snow­den’s work for the CIA at the time he chose to leak NSA doc­u­ments.


FTR #922 The Trumpenkampfverbande, Part 5: Walkin’ the Snake with “The Donald” (The Underground Reich Comes Into Plain View, Part 3)

Sup­ple­ment­ing analy­sis in the first four pro­grams about the Trumpenkampfver­bande, this pro­gram exam­ines the media bias in his favor in the con­text of the Nazi tract “Ser­pen­t’s Walk,” about a Nazi takeover of the U.S. in the mid-twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry. That takeover occurs after the SS goes under­ground (which hap­pened), builds up their “eco­nom­ic mus­cle,” (which has hap­pened with the Bor­mann net­work), buys into the opin­ion-form­ing media (which has hap­pened) and sways the Amer­i­can peo­ple. “A cen­tu­ry after the war they are ready to chal­lenge the democ­rats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Amer­i­cans, who have begun to have their fill of gov­ern­ment-enforced mul­ti-cul­tur­al­ism and ‘equal­i­ty.’ ” This appears to be hap­pen­ing with the Trump cam­paign. Not­ing the inces­sant grilling of Hillary Clin­ton over the e‑mail non-scan­dal (110 of 30,000 e‑mails con­tained clas­si­fied mate­r­i­al, a 0.36 per­cent mar­gin of error) and the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion (a char­i­ty that helps the dis­ad­van­tage and enjoys a high­er offi­cial rat­ing than the Amer­i­can Red Cross), Paul Krug­man com­pared this–accurately–to the kid glove treat­ment afford­ed the dis­hon­est and incom­pe­tent George W. Bush dur­ing the 2000 cam­paign. Review­ing Trump’s cred­i­tors, we note the pri­ma­ry role of Deutsche Bank in under­writ­ing his real estate projects and the mys­te­ri­ous, opaque projects involv­ing Ger­man indus­tri­al and aris­to­crat­ic ele­ments. After review­ing the absolute con­trol that the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work wields over cor­po­rate Ger­many, the pro­gram high­lights the fun­da­men­tal rela­tion­ship between Deutsche Bank, Bor­mann and the remark­able and dead­ly net­work the Reich­sleit­er found­ed. Heav­i­ly invest­ed in Amer­i­can cor­po­ra­tions, the Bor­mann group and the Under­ground Reich are in an excel­lent posi­tion to manip­u­late media cov­er­age of events, through direct cor­po­rate edi­to­r­i­al pol­i­cy and through the award­ing of adver­tis­ing con­tracts. We note, also, that the Bor­mann group con­trols cor­po­rate Ger­many: ” . . . What will not pass is the eco­nom­ic influ­ences of the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion, whose com­mer­cial direc­tives are obeyed almost with­out ques­tion by the high­est ech­e­lons of West Ger­man finance and indus­try. ‘All orders come from the share­hold­ers in South Amer­i­ca,’ I have been told by a spokesman for Mar­tin Bor­mann. . . .” The con­trol of cor­po­rate Ger­many fur­ther enhances the abil­i­ty of the Under­ground Reich to con­trol media cov­er­age. We are of the con­sid­ered opin­ion that this dynam­ic is a major fac­tor in the grotesque­ly slant­ed cov­er­age of Trump’s cam­paign. While the “pun­dits” nat­ter end­less­ly about Hillary Clin­ton’s health (nev­er even con­sid­er­ing that she may have been vec­tored), they are com­plete­ly ignor­ing the fact that Trump is hun­dreds of mil­lions of dol­lars in debt to Deutsche Bank, a preda­to­ry “too big to fail” insti­tu­tion that has flout­ed this coun­try’s reg­u­la­to­ry statutes and engaged in open law break­ing. And, it’s a Bor­mann bank. The broad­cast con­cludes with a tran­si­tion­al ele­ment that notes Trump’s polit­i­cal evo­lu­tion from the anarcho/fascist lib­er­tar­i­an milieu of Ron Paul, the same polit­i­cal forces that are the foun­da­tion of “Team Snow­den” and WikiLeaks/Assange. ” . . . . Trump’s style and posi­tions — endors­ing and con­sort­ing with 9/11 truthers, pro­mot­ing online racists, using fake sta­tis­tics— draw on a now-obscure polit­i­cal strat­e­gy called “pale­olib­er­tar­i­an­ism,” which was once quite pop­u­lar among some Repub­li­cans, espe­cial­ly for­mer pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Ron Paul. . . . But it was [Mur­ray] Rothbard’s found­ing of the Lud­wig von Mis­es Insti­tute in 1982 that enabled the fledg­ling polit­i­cal move­ment to estab­lish affin­i­ty with the neo-Con­fed­er­ate Lost Cause move­ment. . . . In the past few years, how­ev­er, it’s been reborn as the alt-right, as a new gen­er­a­tion of lib­er­tar­i­ans dis­cov­ered their hid­den her­itage and began embrac­ing racism and con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries. Many alt-right writ­ers trace their roots to Roth­bard. As one of them, Gre­go­ry Hood, put it, pale­olib­er­tar­i­an the­o­ries about race and democ­ra­cy “helped lead to the emer­gence [of the] Alter­na­tive Right.” Rothbard’s call for “sov­er­eign nations based on race and eth­nic­i­ty” is very sim­i­lar to beliefs Trump’s alt-right sup­port­ers express today. . . .” Pro­gram High­lights Include: review of the own­er­ship of the Quandt cor­po­ra­tion, par­ent com­pa­ny of BMW and Audi auto­mo­biles by the heirs of Joseph Goebbels; BMW’s use of adver­tis­ing con­tracts to influ­ence edi­to­r­i­al pol­i­cy at “The Atlantic” mag­a­zine; review of George Soros’s role in financ­ing Trump’s Chica­go tow­er; review of the gen­e­sis of Soros’s busi­ness career “Aryaniz­ing” Jew­ish prop­er­ty dur­ing the Holo­caust.


FTR #917 WikiFascism, Part #4: Weighing In for the Trumpenkampfverbande (Technocratic Fascism in Action)

In FTR #‘s 724, 725, 732, 745 and 755, we have detailed the fas­cist and far right-wing ide­ol­o­gy, asso­ci­a­tions and pol­i­tics of Julian Assange and Wik­iLeaks. Lion­ized by the so-called pro­gres­sive sec­tor, as well as main­stream media sources like “The New York Times” and “Der Spiegel,” Assange’s true col­ors and fas­cist pol­i­tics and asso­ci­a­tions have emerged on a larg­er stage. As the Trump cam­paign evolves, a major alliance between Trump and the Assange orga­ni­za­tion has devel­oped. Obvi­ous­ly serv­ing as a dirty-tricks cadre for the GOP, Assange is work­ing hard to destroy Hillary Clin­ton with leaked doc­u­ments intend­ed to tor­pe­do her cam­paign. Assange–not even an Amer­i­can citizen–is man­i­fest­ing what we termed “tech­no­crat­ic fas­cism,” arro­gat­ing to him­self the right to deter­mine the results of the Amer­i­can Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. Quot­ing from a sem­i­nal arti­cle by David Golum­bia: ” . . . Hack­ers (“civic,” “eth­i­cal,” “white” and “black” hat alike), hack­tivists, Wik­iLeaks fans [and Julian Assange et al–D. E.], Anony­mous “mem­bers,” even Edward Snow­den him­self walk hand-in-hand with Face­book and Google in telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it: the polit­i­cal world is bro­ken, they appear to think (right­ly, at least in part), and the solu­tion to that, they think (wrong­ly, at least for the most part), is for pro­gram­mers to take polit­i­cal mat­ters into their own hands. . . .” Assange is net­work­ing with Trump’s dirty tricks oper­a­tor Roger Stone and res­onat­ing with the right-wing GOP/Trump play­book in his activ­i­ties against Clin­ton. A major por­tion of the pro­gram high­lights the sub­stan­tive evi­dence that the DNC hack was NOT done by Rus­sia, but by some­one try­ing to make it look like Rus­sia did it. Assange is now strong­ly hint­ing that the source was Seth Rich, a Demo­c­ra­t­ic Nation­al Com­mit­tee vol­un­teer who was mur­dered. Assange is oblique­ly sug­gest­ing that Clin­ton was behind the mur­der. (Rich’s fam­i­ly dis­putes this canard and is urg­ing the pub­lic to dis­re­gard Assange’s claims.) The Wik­iLeaks Clin­ton e‑mail dump: ” . . . . The emails include unen­crypt­ed, plain-text list­ings of donor emails address­es, home address­es, phone num­bers, social secu­ri­ty num­bers, pass­port num­bers, and cred­it card infor­ma­tion. . . .” Might this have had some­thing to do with the mur­der of Seth Rich? Pro­gram High­lights Include: Wik­iLeaks’ dis­clo­sure of the Social Secu­ri­ty and cred­it card num­ber of Demo­c­ra­t­ic con­trib­u­tors; Wik­iLeaks anti-Semit­ic tweet, label­ing its crit­ics as Jews; Assange’s oblique endorse­ment of Trump; Assange’s embrace of a syn­the­sis of Chica­go school and Aus­tri­an school neo-lib­er­al eco­nom­ic the­o­ry; Assange’s oper­a­tional res­o­nance with Koch broth­ers asso­ciate Peter Schweitzer; review of Assange’s piv­otal asso­ci­a­tions with fas­cists and anti-Semi­tes like Carl Lund­strom and Joran Jer­mas (aka “Israel Shamir”); review of David Duke’s links to the Wik­iLeaks milieu and to Ron Paul (Snow­den and Assange’s Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of choice); David Duke’s sup­port of Trump; ide­o­log­i­cal and rhetor­i­cal res­o­nance between Ron Paul, Glenn Green­wald and Don­ald Trump; a bul­let-point analy­sis that con­nects the dots between ele­ments of this com­plex analy­sis.


Is Russia REALLY Behind the DNC Hack?

” . . . In his minor­i­ty report, he [Jeff Carr] asks: what kind of spy ring tags their stolen docs before releas­ing them under a cov­er? . . . . ‘Raise your hand if you think that a GRU or FSB offi­cer would add Iron Felix’s name to the meta­da­ta of a stolen doc­u­ment before he released it to the world while pre­tend­ing to be a Roman­ian hack­er.’ . . . Crowd­strike pres­i­dent Shawn Hen­ry is [also] dubi­ous. . . . ‘I don’t know what kind of for­eign intel­li­gence ser­vice con­duct­ing a covert oper­a­tion wants to be found,’ he said on Thurs­day, but added that Crowd­Strike picked up the DNC hack with­in 48 hours and that it ‘wasn’t dif­fi­cult.’ . . .” UPDATE: A for­mer Ger­man hack­tivist has weighed in that blam­ing Rus­sia for the hack is almost TOO easy: “ . . . None of the tech­ni­cal evi­dence is con­vinc­ing. . . . Why would a coun­try with some of the best intel­li­gence ser­vices in the world com­mit a whole series of real­ly stu­pid mis­takes in a high­ly sen­si­tive oper­a­tion? . . . it is entire­ly pos­si­ble that this was a false flag oper­a­tion by an unknown third par­ty to esca­late ten­sions between nuclear super­pow­ers. . . .”


Smart Technology “. . . is actually a stealthy euphemism for ‘surveillance’ . . . . a world where we no longer exert control over objects we’ve bought from corporations, but corporations exert control over us . . .”

In the past, we have spo­ken of what we call tech­no­crat­ic fas­cism: “. . . . Hack­ers (“civic,” “eth­i­cal,” “white” and “black” hat alike), hack­tivists, Wik­iLeaks fans [and Julian Assange et al–D. E.], Anony­mous “mem­bers,” even Edward Snow­den him­self walk hand-in-hand with Face­book and Google in telling us that coders don’t just have good things to con­tribute to the polit­i­cal world, but that the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it . . . .” A recent arti­cle on “the inter­net of things” crys­tal­lizes this dynam­ic: ” . . . what is pre­sent­ed as an upgrade is actu­al­ly a stealthy euphemism for ‘sur­veil­lance’. . . The intel­li­gence giv­en to these devices real­ly serves twin pur­pos­es: infor­ma­tion col­lec­tion and con­trol . . . ‘smart’ pro­duces a world where . . . cor­po­ra­tions exert con­trol over us through things we pay for the priv­i­lege of using.” 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.

FTR #904 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

Begin­ning with an update on the inves­ti­ga­tion into the fate of Adolf Hitler, the broad­cast notes that asso­ciates of Simon Dun­stan and Ger­ard Williams (authors of “Grey Wolf”) received death threats in con­nec­tion with their research–this more than 70 years after the Fuehrer’s alleged “sui­cide.”

Fresh from his Sil­i­con Val­ley appear­ance, Naren­dra Modi has been actu­al­iz­ing the RSS’s Hindu/nationalist fas­cism, insti­tut­ing an online mon­i­tor­ing agency and beat­ing up stu­dent pro­test­ers in New Del­hi.

Much of the broad­cast details devel­op­ments in the world of high-tech, from appar­ent and ter­ri­fy­ing hacks to pre­dic­tions about the mas­sive replace­ment of work­ers by robots and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Aya­tol­lah Khome­ini’s net­work­ing with a Mus­lim-Broth­er­hood affil­i­ate; the appar­ent hack­ing of a Boston sub­way train; the hack­ing of a water treat­ment plant; review of Nazi hack­er and Glenn Green­wald crony Andrew Auern­heimer’s hack­ing of remote print­ers; review of the devo­lu­tion of Microsoft­’s Tay AI chat­bot into a Nazi; dis­cus­sion of the devel­op­ment of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence as the “next big thing” in tech­nol­o­gy; pro­jec­tions that 83% of jobs pay­ing under $20.00 an hour will be tech­no­log­i­cal­ly phased out; pro­jec­tion that more than 5 mil­lion con­struc­tion jobs will be replaced by robots and/or AI; the late Antonin Scali­a’s net­work­ing with the Hab­s­burg milieu.


FTR #902 The Underground Reich, and the Deep Politics of the CIA “Privacy Advocates”: Update on the Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook

The mafia began as a resis­tance move­ment focused against Norse (Viking) and Sara­cen (Turkish/Muslim) invaders in 12th and 13 cen­tu­ry Sici­ly. It might seem incred­i­ble to the casu­al observ­er that an orga­ni­za­tion that began so long ago could have devel­oped and spread to the size, grav­i­tas and scope of oper­a­tions that it has. We also appre­ci­ate that when Mr. Emory uses the term “Under­ground Reich,” it might seem odd or incred­i­ble to many. Bring­ing up to date “L’Af­faire Snow­den,” we under­score the deep pol­i­tics under­ly­ing the CIA’s broad­cast psy­cho­log­i­cal war­fare fronts and their evo­lu­tion into the milieu involv­ing and sur­round­ing Eddie the Friend­ly Spook. Much of the mate­r­i­al in this pro­gram is reviewed from pre­vi­ous broad­casts, pre­sent­ed here to pro­vide depth and under­stand­ing to how what has been pre­sent­ed as a “pro­gres­sive,” “enlight­ened” phe­nom­e­non could be its oppo­site. “Team Snow­den” man­i­fests fas­cism and the Under­ground Reich at every turn. A major ele­ment of analy­sis is the devel­op­ment of the CIA’s focal point net­works in the 1950’s, result­ing in the for­ma­tion of a CIA-con­trolled “gov­ern­ment-with­in-the-gov­ern­ment.” Is “Team Snow­den” evolved from the focal point net­works? Next the broad­cast reviews the for­ma­tion of the Broad­cast Board of Gov­er­nors, an umbrel­la orga­ni­za­tion enfold­ing the CIA’s radio pro­pa­gan­da and psy­cho­log­i­cal fronts formed dur­ing the Cold War. “Team Snow­den” is inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the BBG–Snowden him­self worked for CIA when he decid­ed to infil­trate NSA and leak its secrets. In that con­text, we note that the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion was at the foun­da­tion of the for­ma­tion of the propaganda/psychological war­fare fronts under the direc­tion of the BBG. Much of the pro­gram under­scores the Gehlen Org’s links to the Under­ground Reich, in order to rein­force lis­ten­ers’ under­stand­ing of how this net­work dat­ing to World War II could project its influ­ence through the decades and into our con­tem­po­rary his­tor­i­cal peri­od. ” . . . A net­work of for­mer Nazi intel­li­gence agents, the major­i­ty of whom were mem­bers of the SS, began work­ing out of offices at Camp King side by side with army intel­li­gence offi­cers. . . . The Gehlen Orga­ni­za­tion was a mur­der­ous bunch, “free-wheel­ing” and out of con­trol. . . The army became fed up with the Gehlen Orga­ni­za­tion, but there was no way out. Its oper­a­tives were pro­fes­sion­al dou­ble-crossers and liars–many were also alleged war criminals–and now they had the army over a bar­rel. . . .” Dis­cus­sion con­cludes with “First Look” media czar Pierre Omid­yar’s selec­tion of Robert Liet­zke to be an Omid­yar fel­low (Liet­zke was one of Edward Snow­den’s supe­ri­ors when he was employed at Booz Allen Hamil­ton.) Pro­gram High­lights Include: Review of the Cru­sade For Freedom–the covert oper­a­tion that pre­cip­i­tat­ed the for­ma­tion of the Nazi wing of the GOP; the CFF’s use of Radio Lib­er­ty as a front for employ­ing fas­cists and laun­der­ing funds; the con­ti­nu­ity in the Nazi chain of com­mand from the Third Reich to the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion when it went to work for the U.S.; the Gehlen orga­ni­za­tion’s strong links to the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work; the strong over­lap of the Thyssen indus­tri­al fam­i­ly, its busi­ness part­ners in the Bush fam­i­ly, Allen Dulles’ CIA and the Bor­mann net­work; the Gehlen group’s ini­tial re-incar­na­tion as the eyes and ears of Army intel­li­gence.
