FTR #838 Interview (#1) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

The first of sev­er­al inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da about his impor­tant new book “The Hitler Lega­cy,” this pro­gram high­lights the evo­lu­tion of ele­ments which fig­ure into the devel­op­ment of the post-war Nazi under­ground. At the end of the First World War, the Bol­she­vik Rev­o­lu­tion in Rus­sia and abortive Marx­ist upris­ings in Ger­many and else­where in Europe infused the pow­er elite in the U.S. with a para­noid ide­o­log­i­cal ter­ror of a glob­al “Jew­ish-Marx­ist” con­spir­a­cy. Com­bined with fear of Catholic and Jew­ish immi­grants and their effect on Amer­i­can soci­ety, this ide­o­log­i­cal para­noia fused with a social Dar­win­ism that found its expres­sion in eugenics–a pseu­do-intel­lec­tu­al doc­trine that sought the pro­mo­tion of “desir­able” social and eth­nic types and the sup­pres­sion and/or elim­i­na­tion of “infe­ri­or” racial types. See­ing Ger­many as the point ele­ment in the strug­gle against world Marx­ism, indi­vid­u­als and polit­i­cal par­ties sought to ally with Ger­man fas­cists to bring fas­cism to the U.S. This fas­cist Fifth Col­umn includ­ed polit­i­cal groups rang­ing from the Ku Klux Klan to the Sil­ver Shirts of William Dud­ley Pel­ley, as well as the pro­to­typ­i­cal right-wing talk show host Father Charles Cough­lin, “the Radio Priest.” Cough­lin’s efforts were sub­si­dized by Third Reich intel­li­gence. Financed by financiers and indus­tri­al­ists who sup­port­ed fas­cism, this Fifth Col­umn attempt­ed to kill and/or over­throw FDR on sev­er­al occa­sions. In the Mid­dle East, the con­cept of glob­al jihad was devel­oped by Ger­man archael­o­gist Max von Oppen­heim dur­ing the First World War. Envi­sion­ing the world’s Mus­lims as proxy war­riors against the Entente Pow­ers of Britain, France and Rus­sia, von Oppen­heim cre­at­ed the tem­plate for con­tem­po­rary Islam­ic fas­cism and jihadism. Fol­low­ing the divi­sion of the for­mer Ottoman Empire by Britain and France after World War I, the “Arab Street” began man­i­fest­ing belief in an inter­na­tion­al glob­al con­spir­a­cy involv­ing Jews and the Euro­pean colo­nial pow­ers that res­onat­ed with the Amer­i­can pow­er elite’s ido­l­og­i­cal anx­i­eties.


FTR #819 Proxy War and the Earth Island Boogie (What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “Underground Reich?,” Part 3)

Author Peter Lev­en­da has post­ed an arti­cle (excerpt­ed from his recent book) that encap­su­lates sig­nif­i­cant ele­ments of dis­cus­sion pre­sent­ed by Mr. Emory and fea­tured on this web­site. Not­ing Impe­r­i­al Ger­many’s use of Islam­ic proxy war­riors dur­ing the First World War and Nazi Ger­many’s incor­po­ra­tion of the same strat­a­gem, Lev­en­da notes that Nazi ele­ments have con­tin­ued to use Mus­lim proxy war­fare to advance the goals of what Mr. Emory calls the Under­ground Reich. Hav­ing incor­po­rat­ed many impor­tant ele­ments of Nazi Ger­many’s nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment into its own after World War II, the Unit­ed States has co-opt­ed the tac­tic of proxy war. To its detri­ment, the U.S. has failed to grasp that the Under­ground Reich and its Islamist prox­ies have their own agen­das. Those agen­das fea­ture the defeat of the Unit­ed States as a cen­ter­piece of long-term strat­e­gy. Con­clud­ing with an exam­i­na­tion of recent Amer­i­can mil­i­tary involve­ment, the pro­gram notes that much of what we are doing actu­al­ly ben­fits Ger­many and occurs in areas for­mer­ly belong­ing to the Ottoman Empire.


FTR #816 Revisiting the 1972 Olympics Massacre

Revis­it­ing the sub­ject of the 1972 Olympics mas­sacre, we probe more deeply into the under­ly­ing dynam­ics of that event. Hav­ing not­ed in AFA #22 that secu­ri­ty for the games was han­dled by a BND agent named Hans Lange­mann, we review his work cov­er­ing up for the neo-Nazis behind the Okto­ber­fest bomb­ing of 1980. Ger­man neo-Nazis also aid­ed the Black Sep­tem­ber ter­ror­ists who per­pe­trat­ed the Olympics mas­sacre. Despite the fact that the Ger­man gov­ern­ment had advanced warn­ing of the impend­ing attack, no pre­ven­tive action was tak­en. After the attacks, the Ger­man gov­ern­ment was in close touch with the per­pe­tra­tors and down­play­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of the inci­dent. Willi Pohl, one of the neo-Nazis involved who assist­ed Black Sep­tem­ber with the 1972 attack, began work­ing in a counter-ter­ror capac­i­ty for the CIA. Black Sep­tem­ber chief Ali Has­san Salameh, in charge of the attacks, was also impressed into duty with CIA, hav­ing been recruit­ed while Hen­ry Kissinger was astride of Richard Nixon’s nation­al secu­ri­ty pol­i­cy. In spec­u­la­tive mode, we ask if there MAY be a con­nec­tion between Kissinger’s efforts to desta­bi­lize the Willi Brandt government–undertaken con­junc­tion with Third Reich veterans–and the Olympics mas­sacre?


FTR #810 A Prince Too Far

Pop con­spir­a­cy the­o­ry casts the Bilder­berg­er group in a sen­sa­tion­al­ist, polit­i­cal­ly and his­tor­i­cal­ly illit­er­ate “New World Order” con­text. In this broad­cast, we exam­ine the his­to­ry of Prince Bern­hard, the for­mer SS offi­cer and I.G. Far­ben spy who found­ed the group, against the back­ground of the Bat­tle of Arn­hem (Oper­a­tion Mar­ket Gar­den) in Sep­tem­ber of 1944. As head of the Dutch “resis­tance,” appar­ent dou­ble agent Bern­hard sac­ri­ficed a resis­tance fight­er named Chris­t­ian Lin­de­mans (code named “King Kong”), who took the blame for the delib­er­ate betray­al of the Allied bat­tle plan. Sab­o­tage of the Arn­hem oper­a­tion has also been part­ly attrib­uted to Peter Car­ring­ton (lat­er Lord Car­ring­ton and for­mer British For­eign Sec­re­tary dur­ing the run-up to the Fal­ka­lands War.) Attacked for his stun­ning lack of insight with regard to the Argen­tine fas­cist jun­ta’s inva­sion of those islands, Car­ring­ton has nev­er been prop­er­ly vet­ted with regard to the betray­al of part of the British bat­tle plan for the Fal­ka­lnds cam­paign. The pro­gram also exam­ines the fas­cist activ­i­ties and involve­ments of Bern­hard’s heirs in the Roy­al Fam­i­ly of the Nether­lands.


This ISIS (ISIL) Video Isn’t Generating the Gravitas of the Foley Execution

A video of ISIS (ISIL) fol­low­ers swear­ing alle­giance to the orga­ni­za­tion fea­tures a strik­ing episode at about 1:05. The acolytes engage in some very “un-Islam­ic” ges­tur­ing (at right.) It graph­i­cal­ly illus­trates a dynam­ic we have spo­ken of so often. Cen­tral to an under­stand­ing of polit­i­cal con­flicts through­out the 20th and 21st cen­tu­ry is the con­cept of the Earth Island (also called “the World Island.”) This area is pop­u­lat­ed large­ly by Mus­lims, and polit­i­cal affil­i­a­tion with, and/or con­trol of, those pop­u­la­tion groups has long been seen as fun­da­men­tal to dom­i­na­tion of the Earth Island–that, in turn, is the geopo­lit­i­cal key to con­trol­ling the world. Impe­r­i­al Ger­many made good use of Islamists as proxy war­riors dur­ing the First World War, and the Third Reich devel­oped and used that strat­e­gy exten­sive­ly, in both its above-ground and under­ground phas­es. West­ern intelligence–the CIA and deriv­a­tive orga­ni­za­tions such as the Safari Club–have made exten­sive use of this strat­a­gem dur­ing the Cold War and after.


The Return of Bush’s Buddy: “Sammy the Aryan” Making the Rounds in Support of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood

For some time, we’ve cov­ered one of George W. Bush’s Mus­lim Broth­er­hood polit­i­cal asso­ciates Sami al-Ari­an. The Oper­a­tion Green Quest inves­ti­ga­tion into the financ­ing of ter­ror­ist groups (includ­ing al-Qae­da, Hamas and Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad) stemmed from an inves­ti­ga­tion into Sam­my al-Ari­an (“Sam­my the Aryan,” as we call him.) One of the lead­ers of Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad (pic­tured at right), al-Ari­an is now turn­ing out in sup­port of the oust­ed Egypt­ian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood.


Looking Ahead to the Olympics: Bandar Bush and The German “Lord of the Rings”

Indi­cat­ing that the Saud­is had con­trol of the Chechen Islam­ic ter­ror­ists who have bedev­iled Rus­sia, Prince Ban­dar (head of Sau­di intel­li­gence and nick­named “Ban­dar Bush”) made what could be con­strued as a Mafia-like threat of pro­tec­tion or vio­lence if the Rus­sians should fail to cease sup­port for Syr­i­a’s Assad. Thomas Bach, the new head of the Inter­na­tion­al Olympic Com­mit­tee, is close­ly linked with Siemens. He also worked for Adi­das. Bach is a pro­tege of Juan Anto­nio Sama­ranch, a pre­vi­ous head of the IOC and a Span­ish fas­cist.


What Has General Wesley Clark Been Doing since His Retirement?

I.G. Far­ben’s Fis­ch­er-Trop­sch process is expe­ri­enc­ing an indus­tri­al renais­sance. In Koso­vo, for­mer NATO com­man­der Gen­er­al Wes­ley Clark is chair­man of a com­pa­ny using it to pro­duce syn­thet­ic fuel from Kosovo’s coal deposits. Coin­ci­den­tal­ly (?) the head of NATO peace­keep­ing forces in Koso­vo was the son of Nazi war crmi­nal and Third Reich finance min­istry offi­cial Fritz Rein­hardt.


Imagine, “Morsi Is a Textbook Islamic Fascist”: I Told You So, Part 3 (Democracy, Muslim Brotherhood Style, Part 3)

We recall the tsuna­mi of praise, Hosan­nas and Hal­lelu­jahs gush­ing forth from the world’s media and polit­i­cal pun­dit­ry. Hail­ing the “Arab Spring” as the dawn­ing of a new enlight­en­ment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–fundamentally. We, on the oth­er hand, were warn­ing that this phe­nom­e­non was a Nazi oper­a­tion, hav­ing been ini­ti­at­ed by pow­er­ful cor­po­rate forces in the sec­ond admin­is­tra­tion of George W. Bush, it had its trig­ger with the Wik­iLeaks milieu–itself a far-right, Nazi-linked enti­ty, as we demon­strat­ed in FTR’s 732 and #745. (In addi­tion to the doc­u­men­ta­tion in the orig­i­nal WikiLeaks/Arab Spring series, see the arti­cle excerpt­ed below.) Before delv­ing into details, an excel­lent overview of recent events in Egypt was pro­vid­ed in an Eng­lish-lan­guage blog by a cit­i­zen of that tor­tured coun­try. The con­tra­dic­tions and dead­ly under­cur­rents of unfold­ing events were elo­quent­ly summed up by Mah­moud Salem in “Imag­ine.”


Horror Show in the Balkans

The NATO-installed regime of Hasim Thaci man­i­fests per­va­sive polit­i­cal and social crim­i­nal­i­ty. Thaci is alleged to main­tain a harem of more than 50 sex slaves, held in bondage by his body­guards and report­ed­ly offer­ing their favors to KFOR and EULEX per­son­nel. Suc­ces­sors to the 21st Waf­fen SS (“Skan­der­beg”) Divi­sion and oth­er fas­cist fight­ing for­ma­tions from World War II, the Koso­vo Lib­er­a­tion Army has turned that for­mer Ser­bian province into lit­tle more than a Ger­man colony. Much of the inter­na­tion­al com­mu­ni­ty con­tin­ues to view Koso­vo as a crim­i­nal enti­ty oper­at­ing out­side the enve­lope of inter­na­tion­al law.
