FTR #888 Compendium on Citizen Greenwald: A Shiller for Killers

Draw­ing togeth­er mate­r­i­al from pre­vi­ous pro­grams and posts, this broad­cast high­lights Cit­i­zen Green­wald’s role as “a shiller for killers.” QUICK–who do you think said this?: “The parade of evils caused by ille­gal immi­gra­tion is wide­ly known, . . . ille­gal immi­gra­tion wreaks hav­oc eco­nom­i­cal­ly, social­ly, and cul­tur­al­ly; makes a mock­ery of the rule of law; and is dis­grace­ful just on basic fair­ness grounds alone. . . . unman­age­ably end­less hordes of peo­ple pour over the bor­der in num­bers far too large to assim­i­late, and who con­se­quent­ly have no need, moti­va­tion or abil­i­ty to assim­i­late. . . [they pose a threat to] mid­dle-class sub­ur­ban vot­ers.” Don­ald Trump, right? Wrong–it was Glenn Green­wald.

Begin­ning with dis­cus­sion of Green­wald’s role in sup­press­ing jour­nal­is­tic cov­er­age of, and basic free­dom of speech about, Big Tobac­co’s lethal mar­ket­ing prac­tices, we note his role in the Wachtell Lip­ton suit. That suit forced the can­cel­la­tion of a “Front­line” broad­cast and muz­zled key whistle­blow­ers from even dis­cussing the doc­u­ments reveal­ing cig­a­rette man­u­fac­tur­ers’ sin­is­ter activ­i­ty.

Once in pri­vate prac­tice, Green­wald con­tin­ued his work as a shiller for killers, run­ning legal inter­fer­ence for the “lead­er­less resis­tance” strat­e­gy by pro­tect­ing Nazi killers against civ­il suits and mur­der charges.

In addi­tion to defend­ing Nazi leader Matthew Hale against a suit brought by vic­tims of one of his mur­der­ous foot sol­diers, Green­wald defend­ed him when he solicit­ed the mur­der of Judge Joan Lefkow. Judge Lefkow’s hus­band and moth­er were shot to death in her home, after one of Hale’s fol­low­ers post­ed the judge’s home address, a map to her home and pic­tures of her fam­i­ly online. Appar­ent­ly Cit­i­zen Green­wald’s con­cern for inter­net pri­va­cy did not extent to the unfor­tu­nate Judge Lefkow.

Green­wald also defend­ed the Nation­al Alliance and oth­er anti-immi­gra­tion groups against a suit that held them liable for beat­ing and stab­bing attacks on Mex­i­can day labor­ers. The Nation­al Alliance pub­lish­es books specif­i­cal­ly intend­ed to moti­vate racial vio­lence.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: the anti-immi­grant views and rhetoric of Green­wald’s clients and asso­ciates; his role shilling for the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood; Green­wald’s vio­la­tion of ethics when tap­ing wit­ness­es; Green­wald’s asso­ci­a­tion with Nazi Andrew Auern­heimer; Green­wald’s co-host­ing of an event with neo-Con­fed­er­ate advo­cate Jacob Horn­berg­er, as well as Ron Paul; Green­wald’s intel­lec­tu­al cham­pi­oning of vir­u­lent­ly “anti-immi­grant” for­mer GOP con­gress­man Tom Tan­cre­do.


FTR #882 The Perfect “Sturm”: Machiavelli 3.0 and the Rise of Global Fascism

When “The New York Times” takes note of the rise of fas­cism in Amer­i­ca, you know things are get­ting very bad indeed. On suc­ces­sive days (Fri­day, 12/11 and Sat­ur­day, 12/12 of 2015), the Times fea­tured two op-ed columns in each edi­tion dis­cussing the rise of fas­cism in Europe and the Unit­ed States. Fur­ther­more, one col­umn not­ed the fix­a­tion by ISIS, the Hin­du nation­al­ist fas­cists in pow­er in India and oth­ers on a myth­i­cal, ide­al­ized past. The broad­cast recaps Peter Lev­en­da’s analy­sis of the role of atavism in fuel­ing fas­cist ide­ol­o­gy. Long­ing for a myth­i­cal, ide­al­ized past free of the entan­gle­ments of the present, fas­cists of var­i­ous types scape­goat those whom they view as hav­ing pol­lut­ed soci­ety. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Don­ald Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with Helene Von Damm (pro­tege of Eich­mann supe­ri­or and CIA offi­cer Otto von Bolschwing); Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with Joseph McCarthy aide Roy Cohn; Trump’s asso­ci­a­tion with for­mer Axis spy Nor­man Vin­cent Peale; the assis­tance giv­en Joe McCarthy’s witch hunts by a U.S. intel­li­gence net­work draw­ing on the skills of SS offi­cers and led by Karl Wolff (Hein­rich Himm­ler’s per­son­al adju­tant.)


FTR #856 Libertarianism, White Supremacy and Leaderless Resistance

This pro­gram revis­its infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing the rela­tion­ship between out­right fas­cists and racists grouped under the lib­er­tar­i­an polit­i­cal ban­ner and the “lead­er­less resis­tance” strat­e­gy. This libertarian/fascist nexus embod­ies the polit­i­cal forces with which Edward Snow­den is allied. With Dylann Roof’s appar­ent exe­cu­tion of the Charleston church mas­sacre and oth­er, less-pub­li­cized inci­dents, we have expe­ri­enced the rav­ages of killers oper­at­ing as “lone wolves”, inspired by, and act­ing in con­cert with, ide­o­log­i­cal vec­tors dis­sem­i­nat­ed through the inter­net and oth­er media. Snow­den polit­i­cal idol Ron Paul and leak­ing jour­nal­ist of choice Glenn Green­wald are key play­ers in the libertarian/fascist milieu, with Ron Paul and his racist newslet­ters hav­ing cod­i­fied much of the vio­lence we have seen since, and which inspired Dylann Roof and oth­ers. Glenn Green­wald ran legal inter­fer­ence for the lead­er­less resis­tance strat­e­gy, obtain­ing rul­ings that free Nazi and white suprema­cist advo­cates from pos­si­ble civ­il lia­bil­i­ty for inspir­ing acts like the Charleston mas­sacre. Among the libertarian/fascist activists on the scene is Jef­frey Tuck­er, who helped write Ron Paul’s newslet­ters and is list­ed as a found­ing mem­ber of the League of the South. An appar­ent influ­ence on Dylann Roof was Nazi leader and fic­tion author Harold Cov­ing­ton, who espous­es the goal of estab­lish­ing the Pacif­ic Nortrhwest as an “Aryan” home­land for Nazis and white suprema­cists. Cov­ing­ton’s nov­els, like those of Green­wald client the Nation­al Alliance, are intend­ed as “instruc­tion­al” mate­r­i­al. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the burn­ing of numer­ous African-Amer­i­can church­es in the wake of the Charleston mas­sacre; the dis­missal of any notion that the burn­ings con­sti­tute acts of ter­ror; review of the 16th Bap­tist Church bomb­ing and con­nec­tions between that event and the assas­si­na­tion of Mar­tin Luther King; Nazi and white suprema­cist activ­i­ty in Ore­gon; a Ger­man indus­tri­al­ist named Folk­er’s pur­chase of vast amounts of land in the Pacif­ic North­west; Folk­er’s links to Rick Boehlke, an appar­ent eco­nom­ic pro­tege; Boehlke’s sig­nif­i­cant oper­a­tional links to Rudi Dekkers and the milieu of Mohammed Atta in Flori­da; Lafayette (LA) John House­r’s espousal of Nazi and white suprema­cist ide­ol­o­gy.


What the New York Times Didn’t Tell You about Robert (Bob) Whitaker

A recent New York Times Op-ed piece men­tioned that Robert (Bob) Whitak­er was run­ning for Vice Pres­i­dent on a white suprema­cist plat­form in 2016. What the piece (pre­dictably) failed to note was that Robert (Bob) Whitak­er held a sen­si­tive posi­tion in the Rea­gan White House.

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.


Reflections on the Film “Selma” and the Recent Martin Luther King Holiday

The film “Sel­ma” depicts the 16th Street Bap­tist Church bomb­ing in Sel­ma, Alaba­ma. In AFA #8, we note pro­found evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries between that event and the assas­si­na­tion of Dr. Mar­tin Luther King. Links between King’s mur­der and those of Robert F. Kennedy and his broth­er are dis­cussed in AFA #9. Oth­ers are cov­ered in The Guns of Novem­ber, Part IV. Even as peo­ple cel­e­brate the remark­able Dr. King’s life, our soci­ety man­i­fests what the late play­wright Arthur Miller warned against in “The Death of a Sales­man”, speak­ing through Willie Loman’s wid­ow: “You can’t just eat the orange and throw away the peel.” Nei­ther his friends, nor those who pro­fess to hon­or him, will break their silence about the cir­cum­stances of his death, despite the exten­sive body of infor­ma­tion on the pub­lic record doc­u­ment­ing a con­spir­a­cy behind his mur­der.

FTR #829 Fireside Chat about Eddie the Friendly Spook and the Ukraine Crisis

A con­tro­ver­sy ensued when it emerged that House major­i­ty whip Steve Scalise had attend­ed a meet­ing of David Duke’s Euro­pean-Amer­i­can Uni­ty Orga­ni­za­tion. The new­ly-seat­ed GOP-dom­i­nat­ed con­gress which Scalise will help to guide began attack­ing Social Secu­ri­ty on its very first day. Specif­i­cal­ly, the GOP began attack­ing the Social Secu­ri­ty dis­abil­i­ty pro­gram. These devel­op­ments serve as a point of entry into our dis­cus­sion. Snow­den is an advo­cate of elim­i­nat­ing Social Secu­ri­ty and the OUN/B fas­cists run­ning Ukraine are engag­ing in a sim­i­lar pro­gram to force those in East­ern Ukraine to stop their attempts at seces­sion. The ele­ments of the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” are net­worked with Duke, as well. Snow­den’s leak­ing jour­nal­ist of choice, Nazi fel­low-trav­el­er Glenn Green­wald, has been financed by Pierre Omid­yar of Ebay, who has also financed the Ukraine coup. The pro­gram notes many oth­er ele­ments of con­flu­ence between the Snowden/WikiLeaks “op” and the Ukrain­ian coup. The Snowden/WikiLeaks helped to deep-six Oba­ma’s “reboot with Rus­sia” and also alien­ate many of the young, ide­al­is­tic vot­ers who had sup­port­ed him in 2008, there­by help­ing to elect the 114th Con­gress.


Dr. Michael Baden and the Michael Brown Autopsy

There is an old adage among the prac­ti­tion­ers of the clan­des­tine arts: “Give us the coro­ner, we’ll con­trol the city.” It is in that con­text that we note that Dr. Michael Baden per­formed the pri­vate autop­sy on Michael Brown’s body. It was Baden who endorsed the unten­able “Mag­ic Bul­let The­o­ry” for the House Select Com­mit­tee’s inves­ti­ga­tion of the assas­si­na­tion of JFK. We cer­tain­ly don’t have enough infor­ma­tion to state with­out qual­i­fi­ca­tion that an “op” is unfold­ing in the Michael Brown case, but that is a pos­si­bil­i­ty that should always be eval­u­at­ed when Baden turns up in the mix.

Academic Study Says KKK Played a Major Role in Swinging the South for GOP

A recent aca­d­e­m­ic study indi­cates that the Ku Klux Klan played a promi­nent role in con­vert­ing the South from Demo­c­ra­t­ic to Repub­li­can con­trol. Uti­liz­ing the “South­ern Strat­e­gy” to cap­ture a “sol­id South” while mak­ing uneven gains in oth­er states, the GOP has used the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Par­ty’s sup­port for African-Amer­i­can civ­il rights to put the for­mer Con­fed­er­a­cy solid­ly in the “W” col­umn for the Repub­li­cans. This should be weighed against back­ground of the Cru­sade For Free­dom, an ille­gal domes­tic covert oper­a­tion that import­ed large num­bers of Third Reich col­lab­o­ra­tors, includ­ing entire SS intel­li­gence units, into the U.S. All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 10/2/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve.

FTR #814 The National Socialist Underground File

We’ve cov­ered the neo-Nazi group The Nation­al Social­ist Under­ground and its links to Ger­man intel­li­gence for sev­er­al years. In addi­tion to shred­ding files on the NSU, which was financed in con­sid­er­able mea­sure by Ger­many’s domes­tic intel­li­gence ser­vice and ele­ments of its mil­i­tary intel­li­gence ser­vice, files on oth­er Ger­man neo-Nazi groups have been destroyed before being prop­er­ly vet­ted by Ger­man jour­nal­is­tic and legal author­i­ties. One of the most sig­nif­i­cant aspects of the case is the fact that pow­er­ful ele­ments with­in the Ger­man gov­ern­ment are going to extra­or­di­nary lengths to eclipse the insti­tu­tion­al con­nec­tions of the group. Turk­ish media were exclud­ed from being seat­ed at the tri­al of the group, many of whose vic­tims were Turks. In addi­tion, lead­ing Ger­man media were left out of a “raf­fle” to award seat­ing at the tri­al. Attor­neys for the vic­tims’ fam­i­lies have opined that the pros­e­cu­tors have no real inter­est in pur­su­ing the case.
