Cyber McCarthyism, Ukrainian Information Warfare, and the Targeting of U.S. Journalists: Still Walkin’ the Snake in Ukraine

An “infor­ma­tion war­fare” offen­sive being over­seen behalf of Ukraine by a U.S. and Spe­cial Forces vet named Joe Hard­ing is tar­get­ing Amer­i­can jour­nal­ists crit­i­cal of the OUN/B heirs brought to pow­er by the Maid­an coup. Labeled as “dupes” of ene­my pro­pa­gan­da, or worse, they are now appar­ent­ly being tar­get­ed by var­i­ous pro­pa­gan­da and cyber-war tech­niques, a sin­is­ter devel­op­ment that we fear might be accom­pa­nied by vio­lence. His­tor­i­cal and polit­i­cal real­i­ty is being stood on its head, a la “Ser­pen­t’s Walk,” with any­one with the met­tle to tell the unvar­nished truth about events in Ukraine fac­ing “cyber-McCarthy­ism.” 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 #840 Interview (#3) with Peter Levenda about “The Hitler Legacy”

Con­tin­u­ing our dis­cus­sion with Peter Lev­en­da about his remark­able book “The Hitler Lega­cy,” the broad­cast details what the author calls “The exit strat­e­gy.” Fac­ing mil­i­tary defeat, the Third Reich knew that Nazism would not die with the Allied vic­to­ry, but could con­tin­ue the strug­gle from far-flung places. Mov­ing both SS offi­cers and vast amounts of cap­i­tal abroad, the Reich took advan­tage of the ide­o­log­i­cal res­o­nance that exist­ed between the NSDAP and both anti-Com­mu­nist and anti-Semit­ic ele­ments abroad, includ­ing and espe­cial­ly, the Nazi under­ground that exist­ed in the Unit­ed States. Using the Vat­i­can “rat­lines” and their pow­er­ful busi­ness con­nec­tions with West­ern (espe­cial­ly Amer­i­can) cor­po­ra­tions and asso­ci­at­ed law firms, SS men went over­seas, where the vast amounts of cap­i­tal belong­ing to the Bor­mann flight cap­i­tal net­work sus­tained their activ­i­ties. Pro­gram high­lights include: the role of the Bank for Inter­na­tion­al Set­tle­ments in the Nazi finan­cial dias­po­ra; the for­ma­tion and oper­a­tion of the Rein­hard Gehlen spy net­work; analy­sis of “The Red House Doc­u­ment,” includ­ing the pro­vi­sion by Ger­man cor­po­ra­tions to fund the Nazi par­ty under­ground after the war; brief dis­cus­sion of the Grand Mufti and his alliance with the Third Reich.


New World’s Indoor Record for Ignorance

If the Guin­ness Book of World Records had a cat­e­go­ry for sheer polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal igno­rance, the Pol­ish for­eign min­is­ter just might lay claim to that dubi­ous prize. The Red Army units that lib­er­at­ed Auschwitz were part of the Sovi­et force amal­ga­mat­ed under the com­mand rubric “Ukrain­ian Front.” Seiz­ing on that, the Pol­ish for­eign min­is­ter claimed that “Ukrain­ian” sol­diers lib­er­at­ed Auschwitz.

Lithuanian Fascism, Yesterday and Today

Hav­ing become the sec­ond fas­cist coun­try in Europe (in 1925), Lithua­nia is among the EU and NATO coun­tries cel­e­brat­ing its Waf­fen SS units that served the Third Reich. Lithuan­ian fas­cists were nur­tured by West­ern intel­li­gence and were pro­ject­ed into that for­mer Sovi­et repub­lic as part of the desta­bi­liza­tion of the Sovi­et Union. Now, Lithua­nia has resuci­tat­ed the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union, a para­mil­i­tary unit that col­lab­o­rat­ed with the Third Reich. Along with the Ukrain­ian OUN/B and UPA–the Lithuan­ian Rifle­man’s Union con­tin­ued the com­bat of World War II as gueril­la forces sup­port­ed by the OPC (an ele­ment of U.S. intel­li­gence.)

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 #837 Cauldron: Update on Ukraine

With the pos­si­bil­i­ty of nuclear war lurk­ing over the polit­i­cal hori­zon, the tra­gi-com­ic nature of West­ern and U.S. jour­nal­is­tic cov­er­age of Ukraine con­tin­ues to appall. Cit­ing pho­ny pho­tographs pro­vid­ed by asso­ciates of the Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment, as well as “evi­dence” pro­vid­ed by Cold War spin-off com­pa­ny Dig­i­tal­Globe, the U.S. is leav­ing itself vul­ner­a­ble to the pos­si­bil­i­ty of provo­ca­tion by the OUN/B heirs it has sup­port­ed in Kiev. As the halt­ing inves­ti­ga­tion into the Maid­an coup and the sniper attacks that pre­cip­i­tat­ed it gen­er­ates more infor­ma­tion, it is becom­ing clear­er that sniper fire at the Maid­an demon­stra­tions may well have orig­i­nat­ed with the anti-gov­ern­ment forces con­trolled by the Nazi Svo­bo­da and sim­i­lar orga­ni­za­tions. Major points of dis­cus­sion in this pro­gram include: the con­tin­ued influx of for­eign nation­als to run the “Ukrain­ian” gov­ern­ment; the crim­i­nal record of for­mer Geor­gian pres­i­dent Mikheil Saakashvili, a new­ly appoint­ed advis­er to Poroshenko; con­tin­ued por­tray­al of Ukrain­ian Nazi storm troop­ers as cred­i­ble jour­nal­is­tic sources; slips by Ukrain­ian media per­son­nel indi­cat­ing the false nature of reports of Russ­ian inva­sion; nuclear saber rat­tling by a high-rank­ing Ukrain­ian gov­ern­ment offi­cial; a plan to shoot desert­ers from the Ukrain­ian army.


FTR #826 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian Style, Part 2

In FTR #824, we not­ed the deci­sive role played by the Ukrain­ian dias­po­ra in the events unfold­ing in East­ern Europe. Petro Poroshenko is imple­ment­ing a legal gam­bit to per­mit for­eign nation­als to assume cab­i­net posi­tions in his new gov­ern­ment. In par­tic­u­lar, Poroshenko expressed the desire to incor­po­rate cit­i­zens of the U.S., Geor­gia and Lithua­nia in Ukraine’s gov­ern­ment. In short order, Ukrainian/American State Depart­ment Offi­cer Natal­ie Jaresko, Lithuan­ian-born U.S. cit­i­zen Air­vas Abramovi­cius and Geor­gian Alek­san­dre Kvi­tashvili assumed the posts of finance min­is­ter, eco­nom­ic and devel­op­ment and trade min­is­ter and health min­is­ter respec­tive­ly. All three were edu­cat­ed in the Unit­ed States. Jaresko is a for­mer State Depart­ment offi­cer with close links to the US Agency for Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment. The appoint­ments come as Ukraine is close to default­ing on a $17bn IMF loan and mem­bers of Ukraine’s fas­cist vol­un­teer bat­tal­ions are lob­by­ing Con­gress for mil­i­tary aid. Poroshenko is also grant­i­ng cit­i­zen­ship to for­eign-born neo-Nazis, as well as insti­tut­ing an infor­ma­tion min­istry that crit­ics have com­pared to The Min­istry of Truth from George Orwell’s 1984.


FTR #824 Bringing It All Back Home, Ukrainian-Style: The Evolution and Triumph of Ukrainian Fascism

Sup­ple­ment­ing pre­vi­ous work about the Ukrain­ian crisis–one which might spark a nuclear war–we note the deci­sive role of the OUN/B dias­po­ra in the coa­les­cence of fas­cism in that trou­bled nation. The U.S., Cana­da joined Ukraine as the only nations to vote against a U.N. Gen­er­al Assem­bly res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing the glo­ri­fi­ca­tion of Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors as “free­dom fight­ers,” prob­a­bly because of the large OUN/B con­tin­gents present in those coun­tries. (Ger­many and the oth­er EU nations abstained.) Most of the broad­cast access­es a very impor­tant arti­cle by George Elia­son detail­ing the his­tor­i­cal back­ground of the Ukrain­ian dias­po­ra, trac­ing the roots of Ukrain­ian, cen­tral and East­ern Euro­pean fas­cism to the 19th cen­tu­ry ultra-nation­al­ist excep­tion­al­ism fos­tered by the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­i­an Empire. Nur­tured by the Promethean League between the World Wars, Nazi Ger­many dur­ing the Sec­ond World War and the West­ern democ­ra­cies dur­ing the Cold War, that vir­u­lent, bloody ide­ol­o­gy tri­umphed after the breakup of the U.S.S.R. The pro­gram con­cludes by not­ing that Poroshenko has pro­posed bring­ing in cit­i­zens of the U.S., Lithua­nia and Geor­gia to staff the Ukrain­ian fed­er­al police.


Stunning: U.S. Votes AGAINST U.N. Resolution Condemning Nazis and Nazi Collaborators

This past week, the U.S. was one of three coun­tries to vote against a U.N. res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of Nazi col­lab­o­ra­tors as “free­dom fighters”–something the U.S. has been pro­mot­ing since the end of World War II. Ger­many and the EU nations abstained. Ukraine itself and Cana­da were the oth­er coun­tries that vot­ed against the res­o­lu­tion. The OUN/B dias­po­ra and its influ­ence in the GOP and intel­li­gence ser­vices of the U.S. is the pri­ma­ry con­sid­er­a­tion to be weighed in con­nec­tion with this dis­grace­ful episode.

Good Grief Charlie Brown! Henry Kissinger the Voice of Reason on Ukraine?!

When Hen­ry Kissinger comes across as a voice of mod­er­a­tion, you KNOW things are get­ting bad. Robert Par­ry notes that this became real­i­ty when Kissinger was inter­viewed by “Der Spiegel” on the sub­ject of Ukraine. Reject­ing the Par­ty Line that Putin spawned the cri­sis through his “pol­i­cy of expan­sion,” Kissinger cor­rect­ly notes that Putin act­ed in reac­tion to West­ern ini­tia­tives. Also of inter­est in this con­text is the pres­ence of Michael Boci­urkiw, head of the OSCE’s Spe­cial Study Mis­sion in Ukraine. Boci­urkiw is the medi­a’s “go-to-guy” for the down­ing of MH 17 and oth­er aspects of the con­flict in Ukraine.
