FTR #983 Fascism, 2017 World Tour, Part 2

As the title indi­cates, this pro­gram exam­ines man­i­fes­ta­tions of fas­cism around the world.

In Europe, we ana­lyze:

1.-The reca­pit­u­la­tion of Nazi and fas­cist ele­ments in the cur­rent Bul­gar­i­an coali­tion gov­ern­ment of Boyko Borisov. (Bul­gar­ia was a Nazi ally in World War II.)
2.-The vital­i­ty of “regionalism”–a political/economic doc­trine that advo­cates the seces­sion of key pros­per­ous regions from nation states.
3.-Analysis of region­al­ism as an appli­ca­tion of glob­al­ist eco­nom­ic the­o­ry to Euorope.
4.-The his­to­ry of regionalism’s advoa­cy by Third Reich vet­er­an the­o­reti­cians.
5.-Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange’s sup­port for Cata­lan seces­sion from Spain.
6.-The suc­cess of the AfD in Ger­man elec­tions.
7.-AfD politi­cian Alexan­der Gauland’s state­ment that Ger­mans should be proud of what that country’s sol­diers accom­plished in World War II.
8.-The Aus­tri­an Free­dom Party’s pro­ject­ed suc­cess in upcom­ing elec­tions. The par­ty was formed in 1956 by Third Reich vet­er­ans as a vehi­cle for re-intro­duc­ing Aus­tri­an Nazis into the country’s polit­i­cal life.

In Latin Amer­i­ca, we exam­ine:

1.-The ver­dict that Argen­tine AMIA bomb­ing inves­ti­ga­tor Alber­to Nisman’s death was a mur­der, not a sui­cide.
2.-Review of the AMIA bomb­ing inves­ti­ga­tion.
3.-The dis­cov­ery of a cache of Nazi arti­facts, includ­ing devices used for deter­min­ing racial puri­ty. Hitler appar­ent­ly posed with some of the arti­fi­cats.
4.-The role of Nisman’s wid­ow as the judge inves­ti­gat­ing the Nazi arti­fact case.
5.-Operational links between Amer­i­can Nazi Christo­pher Cantwell and the Koch Broth­ers-fund­ed Lud­wig Von Mis­es Insti­tute in Brazil.

In the Unit­ed States, we detail:

1.-How Bre­it­bart active­ly pro­mot­ed Neo-Nazism, while down­play­ing what it was actu­al­ly doing.
2.-How white suprema­cist and Nazi ele­ments are suc­cess­ful­ly using YouTube to main­stream fas­cist and racist views.

In the Mid­dle East, we high­light:

1.-Benjamin Netanyahu’s polit­i­cal con­nec­tions with the Thyssen/Krupp firm, one of the lynch­pins of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.
2.-Yair Netanyahu’s attri­bu­tion of his father’s polit­i­cal dif­fi­cul­ties to sab­o­tage by an inter­na­tion­al Jew­ish con­spir­a­cy.
3.-Ronald Regan’s 1981 cita­tion of Ibn Khal­dun as a key advo­cate for sup­ply-side eco­nom­ics.
4.-Review of the Mus­lim Brotherhood’s embrace of the views of Ibn Khal­dun.


Team Netanyahu and ThyssenKrupp: Bormann Jews in Action

In pro­grams and posts, we have high­light­ed the fas­cist ele­ment in the Zion­ist move­ment and Israel. We have also cov­ered the Bor­mann net­work’s strate­gic use of Jews to head many of its oper­a­tions. It turns out that Ben­jamin Netanyahu and close asso­ciates have been deeply involved with ThyssenK­rupp Marine Sys­tems. The Thyssen inter­ests are at the core of the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work and, in turn, are pro­found­ly involved with the evo­lu­tion and his­to­ry of the Bush fam­i­ly’s busi­ness deal­ings. Ehud Barak recent­ly not­ed that the “seeds of fas­cism” had been plant­ed in Israel.

FTR #956 The National Front and French Deep Politics, Part 1

With the French elec­tions head­ed toward a sec­ond round, there is renewed scruti­ny on the Nation­al Front and its tit­u­lar head Marine Le Pen, who fin­ished sec­ond in the race. Net­worked with var­i­ous fig­ures rang­ing from the milieu of Don­ald Trump to that of Turk­ish pres­i­dent Erdo­gan, the Nation­al Front and the Le Pens (father Jean-Marie and daugh­ter Marine) are car­ry­ing on the fas­cist tra­di­tion in France.

Key ele­ments of dis­cus­sion include:

1. The promi­nent role of Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors and French SS in the for­ma­tion of the Nation­al Front: “. . . . Ex-wartime Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors were promi­nent in the ear­ly lead­er­ship of the Nation­al Front in the 1970s–including mem­bers of the French SS and col­lab­o­ra­tionist Mil­ice, and even a lead­ing offi­cial of the French wartime anti-Jew­ish agency, a minor cog in the Holo­caust. . . .”

2. In the con­text of Le Pen’s kind words from “Team Trump,” we not­ed that, in FTR #951 Trump con­fi­dant and advi­sor Steve Ban­non has been influ­enced by Charles Mau­r­ras, part of the French fas­cist Fifth Col­umn that sub­vert­ed French resis­tance to the Third Reich’s armies.

3. Ms. Le Pen denied French com­plic­i­ty in the Vel D’Hiv roundup, direct­ed by Rene Bous­quet. ” . . . . . . . . On 2 July 1942, Bous­quet and [SS] Carl Oberg [in charge of the French Police] pre­pared the arrests known as the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup (Rafle du Vel’ d’Hiv). Bous­quet per­son­al­ly can­celed orders pro­tect­ing some cat­e­gories of peo­ple from arrests, notably chil­dren under 18 and par­ents with chil­dren under 5. After the arrests, some bish­ops and car­di­nals protest­ed; Bous­quet threat­ened to can­cel tax priv­i­leges for Catholic schools. . . .”

4. Bous­quet was held in high regard by Hein­rich Himm­ler: ” . . . . In April 1943, Bous­quet met with Hein­rich Himm­ler. Himm­ler declared him­self ‘impressed by Bous­quet’s per­son­al­i­ty’, men­tion­ing him as a ‘pre­cious col­lab­o­ra­tor in the frame­work of police col­lab­o­ra­tion’. . . .”

5. Aides of Ms. Le Pen man­i­fest affin­i­ty for the Third Reich. “. . . . ‘They [Le Pen aides Fred­er­ic Chatil­lon, and Axel Lous­tau] have remained Nation­al Social­ist,’ said Aymer­ic Chauprade, once Ms. Le Pen’s prin­ci­pal advis­er on for­eign affairs. . . . ‘The only debat­able point, in the use of the term ‘neo-Nazi,’ is the wrong­ful qual­i­fi­er ‘neo,’ the affi­davit states. . . . . . . . French tele­vi­sion recent­ly broad­cast video from the 1990s of Mr. Lous­tau vis­it­ing an aging promi­nent for­mer SS mem­ber, Léon Degrelle, a dec­o­rat­ed war­rior for Hitler and the founder of the Bel­gian Rex par­ty, a pre­war fas­cist move­ment. Oth­er video showed Mr. Chatil­lon speak­ing warm­ly of his own vis­it with Mr. Degrelle, who was a patron saint of Europe’s far-right youths until his death in 1994. . . .”

6. Of con­sid­er­able impor­tance in the con­text of the cov­er­age of the Nazi influ­ences of the Nation­al Front is the fact that the post-war per­pet­u­a­tion of French fas­cism extends far beyond the Le Pen milieu. Main­stream, even “social­ist” French politi­cians such as Fran­cois Mit­terand are bound­ed by defin­i­tive links with fig­ures from the Vichy col­lab­o­ra­tionist gov­ern­ment. “. . . . An exam­ple is his mem­ber­ship of the Volon­taires Nationaux (Nation­al Vol­un­teers), an orga­ni­za­tion relat­ed to François de la Roc­que’s far-right league, the Croix de Feu, for one to three years, depend­ing on the source.[2] On 1 Feb­ru­ary 1935, Mit­ter­rand joined the Action française march, more com­mon­ly known as ‘l’in­va­sion métèque’, to demon­strate against for­eign doc­tors set­ting up in France with cries of ‘La France aux Français’. [This is sim­i­lar to the theme of the Nation­al Front!–D.E.] There are two pho­tos that show Mit­ter­rand fac­ing a police line,[3] pub­lished in Les Camelots du Roi by Mau­rice Pujo.[4] . . . .”

7. Mit­terand’s fas­cist activ­i­ties extend­ed to oppo­si­tion to sup­port­ers of Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, who resist­ed Mus­solin­i’s takeover of his coun­try: ” . . . . Dur­ing the win­ter of 1936, François Mit­ter­rand took part in action against Gas­ton Jèze. Between Jan­u­ary and March 1936, the nation­al­ist right and the Action française, cam­paigned for Jèze’s resignation.because he act­ed as a coun­sel­lor for Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, after he was dri­ven from Addis Aba­ba by Mus­solin­i’s troops dur­ing the Sec­ond Ita­lo-Abyssin­ian War. . . .”

8. Per­haps most impor­tant for our pur­pos­es con­cerns Mit­terand’s post­war rela­tion­ship with Bous­quet, who financed Mit­terand’s polit­i­cal career and did so for oth­er left-wing French politi­cians. “. . . The most damming of all charges against Mit­ter­rand and his right wing con­nec­tions is prob­a­bly his long last­ing friend­ship with René Bous­quet, ex secré­taire général of the Vichy police. Charles de Gaulle said of Mit­ter­rand and Bous­quet ‘they are ghosts who come from the deep­est depths of the collaboration.’[24] . . . . In 1974, René Bous­quet gave finan­cial help to François Mit­ter­rand for his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign against Valéry Gis­card d’Es­taing. In an inter­view with Pierre Favier et Michel Mar­tin-Roland Mit­ter­rand claimed that he was not the only left wing politi­cian to ben­e­fit from Bous­quet’s mon­ey, as René Bous­quet helped finance all the prin­ci­pal left wing politi­cians from the 1950s to the begin­ning of the 1970s, includ­ing Pierre Mendès France. . . .”

Pro­gram High­lights Include: Review of the French fas­cist Fifth Col­umn that sub­vert­ed the French mil­i­tary resis­tance to Hitler; dis­cus­sion of the Cagoulard plot to over­throw the social front of Leon Blum; not­ing the con­cen­tra­tion of eco­nom­ic own­er­ship in pre­war France and how that gen­er­at­ed sup­port for the Social Front of Leon Blum.


FTR #885 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie?,” Part 2: “The Conga-Line ‘Ops’ ”

For most of this decade, Mr. Emory has ana­lyzed an over­lap­ping series of “ops” that have deter­mined much of con­tem­po­rary polit­i­cal real­i­ty. At the epi­cen­ter of this dynam­ic is the Earth Island. “The Earth Island Boo­gie” embraces an over­lap­ping series of “ops” includ­ing: the so-called “Orange Rev­o­lu­tion” of Ukraine, Wik­iLeaks, the so-called “Arab Spring,” “L’Af­faire Snow­den” and the Maid­an coup of 2014. ISIS is a direct out­growth of the so-called “Arab Spring.” This broad­cast presents a detailed overview of “the con­ga-line ‘ops,’ ” fea­tur­ing links to key text excerpts pro­vid­ing longer analy­sis of these dynam­ics.


FTR #884 What the Hell Does Dave Emory Mean by “The Earth Island Boogie”?, Part 1 (Turkish Taffy, Part 4)

Clar­i­fy­ing and fur­ther devel­op­ing analy­sis of geopo­lit­i­cal dis­cus­sion from both pre­vi­ous and future broad­casts, this pro­gram details the devel­op­ing Islam­ic fas­cism of Turkey’s Tayyip Erdo­gan. Both a NATO coun­try and Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-derived Islamist in nature, Turkey is also man­i­fest­ing aggres­sive mil­i­tarism. Silenc­ing oppo­si­tion press and legal inves­ti­ga­tors who have dis­cov­ered his sup­port for Islam­ic ter­ror­ists, Erdo­gan is propos­ing sweep­ing con­sti­tu­tion­al changes and invok­ing Hitler’s Ger­many as polit­i­cal prece­dent. Erdo­gan’s AK Par­ty evolved from the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and the Bank al-Taqwa milieu. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Erdo­gan’s AK Par­ty’s links with Ger­many and the EU; Turkey’s dis­patch of troops into Iraq, against the wish­es of the Iraqi gov­ern­ment; Hitler’s polit­i­cal last will and tes­ta­ment, envi­sion­ing Islamists as proxy war­riors to ful­fill his polit­i­cal agen­da; review of Zbig­niew Brzezin­ski’s endorse­ment of Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-derived Islamists as proxy war­riors against Rus­sia in the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na in Cen­tral Asia.


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.)

More About the Fascist Element in the Zionist Movement: “The Iron Wall” Stratagem

In future pro­grams, we will explore the fascist/Zionist con­nec­tion at greater length. Some­thing inter­est­ing to con­tem­plate is this: has the U.S. replaced fas­cist Italy as the “Iron Wall” that Vladimir Jabotin­sky sought to ensure the via­bil­i­ty of Zion­ist devel­op­ment of Israel? Netanyahu’s bla­tant attemt at sub­vert­ing not only Oba­ma’s for­eign pol­i­cy but his admin­is­tra­tion, as well, is play­ing superbly into the theme of “a Jew­ish con­spir­a­cy con­trols Amer­i­ca on behalf of Israel.” This theme res­onates effec­tive­ly with tra­di­tion­al anti-Semit­ic pro­nounce­ments such as “The Pro­to­cols of the Learned Elders of Zion.” In a future pro­gram, we will rumi­nate about the role of “Bor­mann Jews” in Israel, and the extent to which they MIGHT influ­ence that coun­try’s poli­cies.

FTR #834 Compendium of Fascist Connections to the Zionist Movement

With Ben­jamin Netanyahu cir­cum­vent­ing accept­ed pro­ce­dure and prepar­ing to address Congress–apparently in order to cir­cum­vent Oba­ma’s pol­i­cy toward Iran–we take time to review the his­to­ry of the Netanyahu fam­i­ly and the Likud Par­ty. Likud is the heir to the fas­cist ele­ment in the Zion­ist move­ment, espe­cial­ly the Betar that was head­ed by Vladimir Jabotin­sky. Netanyahu’s father was the per­son­al sec­re­tary to Jabotin­sky, whose forces took mil­i­tary train­ing at Mus­solin­i’s naval cadet school and were reviewed by Il Duce him­self. A top aide to Jabotin­sky wrote that this was not an alliance of con­ve­nience but one of ide­o­log­i­cal affin­i­ty. Con­tin­u­ing the rela­tion­ship between fas­cism and reac­tionary Zion­ism, the Likud sent a rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the nation­al con­ven­tion of Gian­fran­co Fini’s Allean­za Nationale, the suc­ces­sor to Mus­solin­i’s black­shirts. The GOP sent a seat­ed Con­gress­man (Bob Young) to the con­ven­tion as well. Right-wing Israeli politi­cians con­tin­ue to net­work with Euro­pean fas­cists. After dis­cus­sion of the Stern Gang, an even more extreme fas­cist ele­ment of the Zion­ist move­ment, the broad­cast con­cludes with a look at the rela­tion­ship between Israel, some Jew­ish busi­ness­men and the Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work. This should not be inter­pret­ed as echo­ing the cheesy rhetoric that is pop­u­lar at the moment char­ac­ter­iz­ing Israel and/or the Zion­ist move­ment as fas­cist.


FTR #830 Machiavelli 2.0: The Paris Attacks and the Muslim Brotherhood

In the wake of the ter­ror­ist inci­dents in Paris, dis­cus­sion has point­ed­ly omit­ted the per­pe­tra­tors’ links to the Mus­lim Brotherhood–the Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion that spawned groups like Al Qae­da and ISIS. Por­trayed in the West as a “mod­er­ate’ orga­ni­za­tion, the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood was allied with the Axis in World War II and nur­tured as anti-com­mu­nist cadre by West­ern Intel­li­gence (CIA in par­tic­u­lar) dur­ing the Cold War. Suc­cess­ful­ly scape­goat­ed by Euro­pean fas­cist groups like the Nation­al Front, ele­ments of the Broth­er­hood net­work with those same fas­cists, mutu­al­ly ben­e­fit­ting from cul­tur­al and polit­i­cal alien­ation gen­er­at­ed among their respec­tive sup­port­ers. Much of the pro­gram reviews and details the cor­po­ratist and free mar­ket eco­nom­ic phi­los­o­phy of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an ide­ol­o­gy that endears the Ikhwan to pow­er­ful polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic inter­ests in the U.S. and else­where in the West. Broth­er­hood ele­ments con­tin­ue to be used as proxy war­riors by ele­ments of West­ern and Sau­di intel­li­gence in places like the Cau­ca­sus and Chi­na’s Xin­jiang Province.
