Does O.J. Simpson’s Life Matter?

The crim­i­nal and civ­il tri­als of O.J. Simp­son cap­ti­vat­ed the pub­lic aware­ness, yet the facts con­firm­ing, beyond doubt, O.J.‘s inno­cence were obscured by a blitzkrieg of media-assist­ed and gen­er­at­ed dis­in­for­ma­tion. Sup­ple­ment­ing the medi­a’s insti­tu­tion­al­ized lying was a grotesque dis­tor­tion of the record and out­right crim­i­nal behav­ior by ele­ments of the Los Ange­les legal estab­lish­ment. The very issues at the fore­front of the unrest over race and polic­ing were front and cen­ter in the case of Mark Fuhrman, yet the same pub­lic that is up in arms–literally–over George Floyd, Bre­an­na Tay­lor et al took no notice of the facts in the Simp­son case. Take a half hour to lis­ten to the linked autio of FTR #39, about Mark Fuhrman. Why was­n’t there more dis­cus­sion of this?


Why “Bio-Psy-Op?”: Federal Reserve Analysis Ties 1918 Flu Pandemic to Rise of Nazism

In our ongo­ing series about the Covid-19 out­break and its mul­ti-dimen­sion­al man­i­fes­ta­tions, we have termed it a “bio-psy-op.” An aca­d­e­m­ic paper pro­duced by a Fed­er­al Reserve econ­o­mist posits the socio-polit­i­cal effects of the 1918 flu pan­dem­ic as a fac­tor con­tribut­ing to the rise of Nazism in Ger­many. Cit­ed by numer­ous pub­li­ca­tions, includ­ing “The New York Times,” “Bloomberg News” and “Politi­co,” the study under­scores some of our asser­tions con­cern­ing the fas­cist and extreme right-wing ram­i­fi­ca­tions of the pan­dem­ic. ” . . . . The paper, pub­lished this month and authored by New York Fed econ­o­mist Kris­t­ian Blick­le, exam­ined munic­i­pal spend­ing lev­els and vot­er extrem­ism in Ger­many from the time of the ini­tial influen­za out­break until 1933, and shows that ‘areas which expe­ri­enced a greater rel­a­tive pop­u­la­tion decline’ due to the pan­dem­ic spent ‘less, per capi­ta, on their inhab­i­tants in the fol­low­ing decade.’ . . . The paper’s find­ings are like­ly due to ‘changes in soci­etal pref­er­ences’ fol­low­ing the 1918 out­break, Blick­le argues — sug­gest­ing the influen­za pan­dem­ic . . . may have ‘spurred resent­ment of for­eign­ers among the sur­vivors’ and dri­ven vot­ers to par­ties ‘whose plat­form matched such sen­ti­ments.’ The con­clu­sions come amid fears that the cur­rent coro­n­avirus pan­dem­ic will shake up inter­na­tion­al pol­i­tics and spur extrem­ism around the world. . . .”


FTR #1128 Bio-Psy-Op Apocalypse Now, Part 4: The Apartheid Virus?

This pro­gram explores an inter­roga­to­ry con­sid­er­a­tion, borne out of crit­i­cal eval­u­a­tion of epi­demi­o­log­i­cal infor­ma­tion about Covid-19 in New York City.

The recent dis­clo­sure that ran­dom test­ing of res­i­dents of New York City indi­cat­ed that rough­ly one fifth of that munic­i­pal­i­ty’s res­i­dents may have had Covid-19 and recov­ered rais­es seri­ous epi­demi­o­log­i­cal impli­ca­tions. If the report is remote­ly accu­rate, it is epi­demi­o­log­i­cal­ly absurd to sup­pose the virus orig­i­nat­ed in Chi­na.

(The 1984 inter­view with Dr. Wilbert Jor­dan about the anom­alous epi­demi­o­log­i­cal infor­ma­tion about the spread of AIDS, reprised in FTR #1115, should be reviewed for depth and back­ground to this dis­cus­sion.)

In addi­tion, we spec­u­lat­ed in FTR #1127 that New York City MAY have been delib­er­ate­ly vec­tored with the virus. The report cit­ed above makes lit­tle sense if that were not the case. 

In this dis­cus­sion, we col­late a num­ber of items from past pro­grams, con­sid­er­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty that some of the ele­ments we dis­cuss MIGHT have fig­ured in a hypo­thet­i­cal vec­tor­ing of New York City:

1.–We note in that regard that New York City was delib­er­ate­ly tar­get­ed for test­ing of bio­log­i­cal war­fare agents in the mid-1960’s. ” . . . . In the sum­mer of 1965, Spe­cial Oper­a­tions men walked into three New York City sub­way sta­tions and tossed light­bulbs filled with Bacil­lus sub­tilis, a benign bac­te­ria, onto the tracks. The sub­way trains pushed the germs through the entire sys­tem and the­o­ret­i­cal­ly killed over a mil­lion pas­sen­gers. . . .”
2.–For con­sid­er­a­tion in this con­text is the doc­u­ment­ed record of the use of Nazis, fas­cists and white suprema­cists in the Amer­i­can bio­log­i­cal war­fare devel­op­ment over the decades–not all of it in the after­math of World War II and Project Paper­clip.
3.–We review infor­ma­tion about Dr. Lar­ry Ford, an acolyte of “The Turn­er Diaries,” who had worked for the CIA assist­ing the apartheid regime’s Project Coast bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram. Ford was inves­ti­gat­ed for pos­si­ble involve­ment with the milieu behind the anthrax attacks after 9/11. ” . . . . he had held extreme racist views and had once told a girl­friend that to under­stand him, she should read ‘The Turn­er Diaries,’ the anti-Semit­ic and white suprema­cist nov­el, pop­u­lar among far-right groups, that pros­e­cu­tors say inspired the Okla­homa City bomb­ing . . . .”
4.–Ford oper­at­ed in con­junc­tion with Project Coast under the aus­pices of CIA: ” . . . . But ten min­utes lat­er the liai­son called again and said there was ‘high con­fi­dence’ that Ford had bio­log­i­cal- and chem­i­cal-weapons knowl­edge and did, in fact, have the capa­bil­i­ty to coat the knife with a dead­ly tox­in. Short­ly after that a third call came in: Ford did work for the CIA, the chas­tened FBI offi­cial told the room full of cops. . . .”
5.– An Air Force Acad­e­my report on Project Coast dis­cussed an inter­na­tion­al right-wing net­work that  grew out of the South African bio-weapons pro­gram: ” . . . . Accord­ing to a recent U.S. Air Force Acad­e­my report on South Africa’s bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram, Ford was part of a glob­al net­work of sci­en­tists that Bas­son assem­bled to assist Project Coast. Whether that meant cre­at­ing — or receiv­ing and stor­ing — tox­ins pro­duced by the pro­gram is a mat­ter of con­jec­ture, the report sug­gests, as South African offi­cials have been unable to account for all of the dan­ger­ous mate­r­i­al pro­duced over the years. The Air Force report quotes tes­ti­mo­ny from a Swiss intel­li­gence agent [Juer­gen Jacomet?] who laun­dered mon­ey for Bas­son and who describes a world­wide con­spir­a­cy involv­ing unnamed Amer­i­cans. ‘The death of Dr. Ford and rev­e­la­tions of his South African involve­ment,’ the report states, ‘[rais­es] the pos­si­bil­i­ty of a right-wing inter­na­tion­al net­work, [still] unit­ed by a vision of South Africa once again ruled by whites.’ . . . .”
6.–Steven Hatfill–another long­time, intel­li­gence-con­nect­ed bio­log­i­cal war­fare expert–has worked with white suprema­cists in both the for­mer Rhode­sia (now Zim­bab­we) and South Africa. He, too, was inves­ti­gat­ed in con­nec­tion with the anthrax attacks.
7.–About Hat­fil­l’s CV: ” . . . . Here is a fel­low [Hat­fill] with a fake Ph.D. who posed for The Wash­ing­ton Times as a bioter­ror­ist with a home­made plague dis­sem­i­na­tor, and who boast­ed as recent­ly as last year of hav­ing served with the apartheid gov­ern­men­t’s noto­ri­ous Selous Scouts dur­ing the Rhode­sian anthrax epi­dem­ic. I have three dif­fer­ent edi­tions of his cur­ricu­lum vitae . . . How did such a ras­cal come to be instruct­ing the C.I.A., F.B.I., Defense Intel­li­gence Agency, army, navy, Marines, U.S. mar­shals, and State Depart­ment on such mat­ters as the han­dling of dead­ly pathogens and of bioter­ror inci­dents ? . . .”
8.–About the inves­ti­ga­tion into Hat­fill in con­nec­tion with the 2001 anthrax attacks and his asso­ci­a­tion with the Afrikan­er Resis­tance Move­ment (AWB): ” . . . . The FBI’s inves­ti­ga­tion [of the anthrax attacks] this time focused on Dr. Steven J. Hat­fill, who once worked as a research sci­en­tist at the U.S. Army Med­ical Research Insti­tute of Infec­tious Dis­ease at Fort Det­rick, Mary­land. Hat­fill had spent con­sid­er­able time in South Africa, and was affil­i­at­ed with the Afrikan­er Resis­tance Move­ment (AWB). How­ev­er, after a thor­ough inves­ti­ga­tion, the FBI even­tu­al­ly cleared Hat­fill of any con­nec­tion to the anthrax attacks. . . .”
9.–Of sig­nif­i­cant inter­est in that regard is Hat­fil­l’s close pro­fes­sion­al rela­tion­ship with fel­low bio­log­i­cal war­fare expert Bill Patrick, who direct­ed the above experiment/attack on the New York City sub­way: “. . . . Then there’s the 1965 sim­u­lat­ed attack on the New York City sub­way. On June 8 of that year, under Bill Patrick­’s direc­tion, the sub­way was tar­get­ed with the anthrax sim­u­lant B.g. Light­bulbs, each con­tain­ing 87 tril­lion spores, were dropped onto the tracks. Trains then sucked the clouds of live bac­te­ria into the sub­way sys­tem. C.I.A. and mil­i­tary sci­en­tists, bear­ing fake ID’s, were on loca­tion to count the spores. More than a mil­lion rid­ers were exposed to B.g. that day; many inhaled more than a mil­lion spores per minute. Patrick, when telling this sto­ry, still chuck­les about how ‘we clob­bered the Lex­ing­ton line with B.g.’. . . .”
10.–Despite the age dif­fer­ence, Patrick and Hat­fill became close: ” . . . . The most curi­ous piece of field­work not­ed on Steven Hat­fil­l’s most recent C.V. is that of  ‘open air test­ing and vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty tri­als.’ In a 2001 paper, ‘Bio­log­i­cal War­fare Sce­nar­ios,’ Bill Patrick called the 1965 sim­u­lat­ed attack on the New York sub­way ‘one of the most impor­tant vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty stud­ies’ of the 70 he con­duct­ed. . . . By 1998, Hat­fill was Patrick­’s side­kick in what one col­league has described as a ‘Bat­man and Robin’ team. But it is from USAMRIID that Hat­fill claims to have acquired his work­ing knowl­edge of army-spon­sored ‘vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty’ tri­als. . . .”
11.–Hatfill has net­worked with Steve Ban­non, appear­ing on his pod­cast. (Hat­fill threw cold water on the sug­ges­tion that Covid-19 may have been man­u­fac­tured in a lab­o­ra­to­ry. A high­ly intel­li­gent, vet­er­an covert oper­a­tor, Hat­fill would have cer­tain­ly done this, IF he had knowl­edge of, or involve­ment with, ele­ments that had authored such an event. Giv­en Hat­fil­l’s affil­i­a­tion with groups like the Rhode­sian Selous Scouts and White Afrikan­er Resis­tance, we won­der if Hat­fill or a like-mind­ed indi­vid­ual may have pro­vid­ed infor­ma­tion for and/or impe­tus to, a vec­tor­ing of New York City with a rel­a­tive­ly mild Covid-19 strain? Might Hat­fil­l’s work on “four lev­els of bio­log­i­cal attack” been an inspi­ra­tional or oper­a­tional basis for a “lev­el four” attack?: ” . . . . The fourth lev­el con­sists of a self-sus­tain­ing, unstop­pable epi­dem­ic. . . .”
12.–In FTR #324, we not­ed that the Broeder­bond orga­ni­za­tion had appar­ent­ly per­pet­u­at­ed itself in an alto­geth­er lethal form as “Die Organ­isas­ie” or “Third Force.” Might such a group have links to Steve Ban­non and/or Trump’s milieu? Might they have been con­nect­ed to a hypo­thet­i­cal vec­tor­ing of New York City? There are Amer­i­cans involved with “Die Organ­isas­ie.” We won­der if this might be linked to the orga­ni­za­tion con­tained in the Air Force Acad­e­my report men­tioned in the arti­cle about Lar­ry Ford?
13.–About “Die Organ­isas­ie”: “. . . . [Nico] Palm spoke enig­mat­i­cal­ly of ‘Die Organ­isas­ie,’ a pulp fic­tion nom de guerre (which he calls, even more melo­dra­mat­i­cal­ly, the ‘Spi­der Net­work’). It is a group of white South Africans who wait patient­ly for he demise of the ANC gov­ern­ment and a return to the old days. They are not the mad pseu­do-Nazis of the far right, but some­thing far more orga­nized, well financed, and patient. Oth­er peo­ple know them as ‘The Third Force.’ We are to hear of them time and again from ex-sol­diers like Nico Palm all the way up to South Africa’s deputy defense min­is­ter, Ron­nie Kas­rils. Sig­nif­i­cant­ly, files have also been opened by MI5 in poten­tial­ly sig­nif­i­cant union of like-mind­ed South African right-wingers. All of them are ex-pats now liv­ing in the Unit­ed King­dom, who may sup­port the desta­bi­liza­tion of any black South African gov­ern­ment. . . .”
14.–About Amer­i­cans in Die Organ­isas­ie: “. . . . [for­mer Swiss intel­li­gence agent Juer­gen] Jacomet, now ner­vous, is pressed to expand a lit­tle. ‘There is a group of peo­ple here in Lon­don, he says. ‘One could call them the friends of South Africa. They have it in mind to see a strong white South Africa again. There are Amer­i­can con­nec­tions too. . . .”
15.–More about the Amer­i­can links to Die Organ­isas­ie” ” . . . . Jacomet men­tions some well-known South African names—men pre­vi­ous­ly asso­ci­at­ed with Third Force activ­i­ties. He also refers to an Amer­i­can name known to Britain’s MI5 for his alleged involve­ment with Bas­son in mon­ey laun­der­ing, sanc­tions bust­ing, and bio­log­i­cal agents pro­cure­ment. [Empha­sis added.] Once again, Die Organ­isas­ie is men­tioned in respect­ful tones, and, once again, the details remain scant and elu­sive. Jacomet remains silent . . . .”
16.–When informed by the British about Project Coast (the apartheid BW pro­gram) and Die Organ­isas­ie (or ‘Third Force’), Man­dela feared that the weapons would fall into the hands of the Afrikan­er Resis­tance Move­ment (AWB) with which Hat­fill is con­nect­ed: ” . . . . In the end it was British rep­re­sen­ta­tives who decid­ed to approach Pres­i­dent Man­dela, with a min­i­mum of fan­fare, to advise him that he was inher­it­ing an ugly bio­log­i­cal assas­si­na­tion pro­gram from the pre­vi­ous admin­is­tra­tions. Mandela’s first reac­tion was: ‘Oh my God!’ He was ini­tial­ly ter­ri­fied that the South African ‘Third Force’ ele­ments, includ­ing such orga­ni­za­tions as Eugene Terre Blanche’s ultra right-wing and fanat­i­cal AWB, might lay their hands on it. . . .”
17.–Ebola was appar­ent­ly the focal point of some of Lar­ry Ford’s work: ” . . . . Ford told the Rileys and oth­ers his sub­se­quent work for the mil­i­tary and the CIA includ­ed research on bio­log­i­cal and chem­i­cal weapons, con­sult­ing on Iraqi capa­bil­i­ties dur­ing the Gulf War, and sneak­ing into epi­dem­ic hot zones in Africa to gath­er sam­ples of such killer organ­isms as the Ebo­la and Mar­burg virus­es. . . .”
18.–Dr. Stamps–Zimbabwe’s Health Minister–had some point­ed obser­va­tions about out­breaks of Ebo­la dur­ing that nation’s war of inde­pen­dence and his belief that they result­ed from Project Coast. Note that Hat­fill was involved with the Rhode­sian Selous Scouts: “ . . . . ‘I have my sus­pi­cions about Ebo­la too. [Dr. Stamps is quoted–the Health Min­is­ter of Zim­bab­we] It devel­oped along the line of the Zam­bezi Riv­er, and I sus­pect that this may have been an exper­i­ment to see if a new virus could be estab­lished to infect peo­ple. We looked on the sero­log­i­cal evi­dence on strange cas­es, includ­ing a fif­teen-year-old child which occurred in 1980. Noth­ing real­ly made epi­demi­o­log­i­cal sense. Do I have evi­dence? Only cir­cum­stan­tial. In fact, the Rhode­sian secu­ri­ty forces were more expert than the Nazis at cov­er­ing up evi­dence.’ . . .”
19.–Corroborating some of Dr. Stamps’ sus­pi­cions con­cern­ing Ebo­la, “Gert” (a pseu­do­nym for a vet­er­an of Project Coast) dis­cussed the use of that virus and the relat­ed Mar­burg virus in Project Coast. “Gert” also implies that US sci­en­tists from Ft. Det­rick (Dr. Ford? Steven Hat­fill) were involved with a Zairi­an out­break. “ . . . . ‘Look, I know what one of the very, very, very secret spe­cial­ized units had. We had to test it. And that was viral cap­sules that were specif­i­cal­ly relat­ed to Con­go fever and the hem­or­rhag­ic fevers.’ Ebo­la? ‘Yes.’ So Gert is begin­ning to cor­rob­o­rate Dr. Stamp’s sus­pi­cions in Harare that Ebo­la and Mar­burg, although indige­nous, were also arti­fi­cial­ly seed­ed into South­ern Africa. Bas­son, says Gert, was involved in all this. (when the last ter­ri­ble Ebo­la out­break occurred in Kik­wit, Zaire, as late as 1995, Gert claims that Bas­son was there, unof­fi­cial­ly. Twen­ty years ear­li­er, when the vil­lage of Yam­buku in north­ern Zaire wit­nessed one of the first major Ebo­la out­breaks, two South African sci­en­tists were there, alleged­ly work­ing hand in glove with US mil­i­tary per­son­nel from Fort Det­rick.) . . . . ”
20.–In numer­ous pro­grams and posts, we have cov­ered the Gilead Sci­ences drug remde­sivir, now approved for treat­ing Covid-19, despite luke­warm infor­ma­tion from tri­als. Remde­sivir is made by Gilead Sci­ences, a major hold­ing of Robert Mer­cer’s Renais­sance Tech­nolo­gies. (Mer­cer, of course, was Steve Ban­non’s finan­cial angel.) Note that Remde­sivir was ini­tial­ly devel­oped to fight Ebo­la, and “fiz­zled.” Again, might there be a link to Project Coast, the late Dr. Lar­ry Ford, Steven Hat­fill, Ft. Det­rick, “Die Organ­isas­ie” or some com­bi­na­tion there­of?
21.–We also note that Chi­na has been mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant inroads into Africa, a devel­op­ment that has been a major focal point of activ­i­ty by Mike Pom­peo’s State Depart­ment. It is worth remem­ber­ing, in this con­text, that such a devel­op­ment MIGHT make Chi­na a focal point of activ­i­ty by Die Organ­isas­ie, per­haps as part of a covert oper­a­tion over­seen by Ban­non. Again, might there be a link to Project Coast, the late Dr. Lar­ry Ford, Steven Hat­fill, Ft. Det­rick, “Die Organ­isas­ie” or some com­bi­na­tion there­of?


White Supremacists, Nazis and Biological Warfare

In FTR #1127, we not­ed that a ran­dom test­ing of New York City res­i­dents indi­cat­ed that up to a fifth of the city’s res­i­dents may have been infect­ed with one of the milder strains of Covid019. That sug­gests very strong­ly that the city was vectored–it is epi­demi­o­log­i­cal­ly absurd to assume that the virus came from Chi­na. In that same pro­gram, we not­ed that New York had been the site of a bio­log­i­cal war­fare test in 1965: ” . . . . In the sum­mer of 1965, Spe­cial Oper­a­tions men walked into three New York City sub­way sta­tions and tossed light­bulbs filled with Bacil­lus sub­tilis, a benign bac­te­ria, onto the tracks. The sub­way trains pushed the germs through the entire sys­tem and the­o­ret­i­cal­ly killed over a mil­lion pas­sen­gers. . . .” In FTR #317, we set forth the late Dr. Lar­ry Ford’s work for the CIA assist­ing the South African apartheid regime’s Project Coast bio­log­i­cal war­fare pro­gram. Ford: was a devo­tee of “The Turn­er Diaries; secured Ebo­la and Mar­burg virus­es for Project Coast; may have been linked to a glob­al net­work of white suprema­cists that grew out of Project Coast; was posthu­mous­ly inves­ti­gat­ed in con­nec­tion with the anthrax attacks of 2001. In FTR #642, we high­light­ed bio­log­i­cal war­fare expert Steven Hat­fil­l’s asso­ci­a­tion with the white nation­al­ist regimes of Rhode­sia (now Zim­bab­we) and apartheid South Africa, includ­ing White Afrikan­er Resis­tance (AWB). Hat­fill was inves­ti­gat­ed in con­nec­tion with the 2001 anthrax attacks as well, and sub­se­quent­ly exhon­er­at­ed. Hat­fill was very close to Bill Patrick, who over­saw the 1965 bio­log­i­cal war­fare exper­i­ment which infect­ed the New York City Sub­way sys­tem with mil­lions of sim­u­lat­ed path­o­gen­ic bac­te­ria. We won­der if Hat­fill may have (per­haps indi­rect­ly) pro­vid­ed impe­tus to a vec­tor­ing of New York City with a mild strain of Covid-19? We also note that Hat­fill has net­worked with Steve Ban­non, who is at the epi­cen­ter of the anti-Chi­na effort. In FTR #324, we exam­ined Project Coast in detail. That exam­i­na­tion includ­ed the oper­a­tion’s use of Ebo­la (alleged­ly in tan­dem with per­son­nel from Ft. Det­rick) and very cred­i­ble accounts of a pow­er­ful, alto­geth­er dead­ly net­work of post-apartheid operatives–“Die Organ­isas­ie”– linked to Project Coast and aspir­ing to a return to white dom­i­na­tion of South­ern Africa. With Chi­na mak­ing inroads into Africa, we won­der if that alto­geth­er lethal net­work MAY have been enlist­ed in the anti-Chi­na effort? We also won­der if some of the Project Coast research MAY have had bear­ing on the selction of remde­sivir (developed–unsuccessfully–to fight Ebo­la), pro­duced by Gilead Sciences,a major invest­ment of Robert Mer­cer’s Renais­sance Tech­nolo­gies?


FTR #1103 Fascism, 2019 World Tour, Part 13: Goose-Hopping in Hong Kong with Pepe the Frog and the Azov Battalion

We have been high­light­ing the role of Ukraine as a “piv­ot point” for the Earth Island or World Island, and the evo­lu­tion of the Inter­mar­i­um con­cept in the appli­ca­tion of fas­cist con­trol of that unfor­tu­nate coun­try. 

Stretch­ing from the Straits of Gibral­tar, all across Europe, most of the Mid­dle East, Eura­sia, Rus­sia, Chi­na and India, that stretch of land: com­pris­es most of the world’s land mass; con­tains most of the world’s pop­u­la­tion and most of the world’s nat­ur­al resources (includ­ing oil and nat­ur­al gas.) Geopoliti­cians have long seen con­trol­ling that land mass as the key to world dom­i­na­tion.

Key to ana­lyz­ing the real­iza­tion of con­trol of the Ukrain­ian “piv­ot point” is the OUN milieu and its man­i­fes­ta­tion through the bet­ter part of the last cen­tu­ry. 

On our Fas­cism: 2019 World Tour, we have cov­ered the desta­bi­liza­tion of Chi­na and Hong Kong, as well as the oper­a­tions of the Ukrain­ian Nazi Azov milieu. Now, there has been some­thing of a con­ver­gence.

Aug­ment­ing the right-wing and fas­cist pres­ence in Hong Kong are vet­er­ans of the Azov Bat­tal­ion and Pravy Sek­tor. ” . . . . The lat­est col­lec­tion of extreme-right activists to rein­force the ranks of the Hong Kong sep­a­ratists are from Ukraine. They call them­selves Gonor and have tat­toos on their upper tor­sos with unde­ni­able sym­bols of white suprema­cy and neo-Nazism. These extrem­ists pre­vi­ous­ly fought in a noto­ri­ous­ly bru­tal neo-Nazi mili­tia called the Azov Bat­tal­ion, in Ukraine’s war against pro-Russ­ian mil­i­tants. . . .”

The Gonor con­tin­gent includes a for­mer leader of Pravy Sek­tor (Right Sec­tor). ” . . . . Jour­nal­ist Mor­gan Artyukhi­na iden­ti­fied anoth­er mem­ber of the far-right Ukrain­ian con­tin­gent in Hong Kong as Ser­hii Ster­nenko. Artyukhi­na not­ed that Ster­nenko is a for­mer leader of the Ukrain­ian fas­cist group Right Sec­tor, which burned down a trade union build­ing in Odessa dur­ing the 2014 coup, killing 42 peo­ple. . . .”

Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance is the fact that the Ukrain­ian fas­cists are in Hong Kong under the aus­pices of an EU-financed NGO. ” . . . . The Free Hong Kong Cen­ter is a project of an NGO called the Lib­er­al Demo­c­ra­t­ic League of Ukraine. In addi­tion to build­ing links with anti-Bei­jing forces in Hong Kong, the project says its mis­sion is to ‘counter Chi­nese threats to Ukraine.’ The Lib­er­al Demo­c­ra­t­ic League of Ukraine is a pro-Euro­pean Union advo­ca­cy orga­ni­za­tion which is a mem­ber of the Euro­pean Lib­er­al Youth and the Inter­na­tion­al Fed­er­a­tion of Lib­er­al Youth, both of which are fund­ed by the EU. . . .”

Key points of dis­cus­sion and analy­sis include:

1.–The Azov and Pravy Sek­tor vet­er­ans call them­selves Gonor and the NGO that facil­i­tat­ed their entry into Hong Kong white­washed the Nazi/fascist nature of the group.
2.–Members of the group sport­ed a vari­ety of Nazi and fas­cist tat­toos, includ­ing the “Vic­to­ry or Val­hal­la” slo­gan that was the title of a book by David Lane. Lane drove the get­away car for the mur­der of talk-show host Alan Berg and mint­ed the 14 Words—emblematic for the inter­na­tion­al Nazi move­ment. Svoboda’s C14 mili­tia takes its name from the 14 words.  ” . . . . Sev­er­al pho­tos show that at least two of the Ukrain­ian fas­cists in Hong Kong have tat­toos read­ing “Vic­to­ry or Val­hal­la,” the title of a com­pi­la­tion of writ­ings by the noto­ri­ous Amer­i­can white suprema­cist David Lane, whose neo-fas­cist ter­ror­ist group The Order mur­dered a lib­er­al Jew­ish radio host and planned more assas­si­na­tions of left-wing Jews. Lane, who was con­vict­ed to 190 years in a US prison for numer­ous crimes, cre­at­ed the most famous white suprema­cist slo­gan, known as the 14 Words — which inspired the name of anoth­er Ukrain­ian neo-Nazi group called C14. . . .”
3.–Gonor has embraced the slo­gan “Stand with Hong Kong.” ” . . . .  Stand With Hong Kong is also the name of a West­ern-backed orga­ni­za­tion that has been lob­by­ing the gov­ern­ments of the US, Britain, Ger­many, Cana­da, and Aus­tralia to impose sanc­tions and take puni­tive action against Chi­na. . . .”
4.–Gonor’s Telegram chan­nel has high­light­ed acts of vio­lence by the “pro-Democ­ra­cy” demon­stra­tors. ” . . . . Gonor’s Telegram chan­nel offers mem­bers a front row seat to an orgy of vio­lence. It has pub­lished dozens of videos of Hong Kong insur­gents, hero­iz­ing them for shoot­ing arrows and car­ry­ing out bru­tal attacks on state secu­ri­ty forces. . . .”
5.–The NGO—The Free Hong Kong Cen­ter (a sub­sidiary of the Lib­er­al Demo­c­ra­t­ic League of Ukraine) also white­washed the Nazi char­ac­ter of the Azov Bat­tal­ion.
6.–The Ukrain­ian Nazis had obtained press pass­es for their pres­ence in Hong Kong.
7.–The Ukrain­ian Nazis were emphat­ic about their pres­ence in Hong Kong being an exten­sion of the Maid­an coup.
8.–The pres­ence of the Ukrain­ian fas­cists in Hong Kong appears to be an exten­sion of Amer­i­can and EU Earth Island geo-polit­i­cal activism.
9.–Are the Azov and Pravy Sek­tor vet­er­ans in Hong Kong to pro­vide a vio­lent, mil­i­tary pres­ence as part of the Hong Kong desta­bi­liza­tion effort? Are we wit­ness­ing a “Hong Kong” Maid­an?

In FTR #1089, we not­ed the pres­ence of Pepe the Frog as an icon­ic pres­ence in the Hong Kong tur­moil. 

Steve Bannon–one of the lumi­nar­ies of the “Alt-Right,” and a for­mer key Trump aide is cen­tral­ly involved in the anti-Chi­na effort. This sug­gests that the pres­ence of Pepe the Frog’s image in Hong Kong might have some­thing to do with the “Alt-Right” after all.

As dis­cussed in–among oth­er programs–FTR #‘s 946 and 1077, Ban­non was at the epi­cen­ter of the Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca cyber-psy-op dur­ing the 2016 elec­tion. One of the prin­ci­pal oper­a­tors of Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca was Christo­pher Wylie. 

We won­der if the tech­niques used by Ban­non, Wylie, Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca, SCL et al might have been used in Hong Kong? The the lais­sez-faire econ­o­my of Hong Kong has seen a 300 per­cent increase in rents while income has stag­nat­ed, thus impov­er­ish­ing 20% of Hong Kong’s pop­u­la­tion. Many young peo­ple in Hong Kong might well be vul­ner­a­ble to the type of social media psy-op that Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca spe­cial­ized in.

Was such a tech­nique employed to help gen­er­ate the unrest in Hong Kong?

In our next pro­gram, we will review the rebirth of Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca, with a Hong Kong-based financier and busi­ness part­ner of Erik Prince (of Black­wa­ter fame and the broth­er of Trump Sec­re­tary of Edu­ca­tion Bet­sy DeVos) on the board of direc­tors.

Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca is rebrand­ing under a new com­pa­ny, Emer­da­ta. Intrigu­ing­ly, Cam­bridge Analytica’s trans­for­ma­tion into Emer­da­ta is note­wor­thy because  the fir­m’s direc­tors include John­son Ko Chun Shun, a Hong Kong financier and busi­ness part­ner of Erik Prince: ” . . . . But the company’s announce­ment left sev­er­al ques­tions unan­swered, includ­ing who would retain the company’s intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty — the so-called psy­cho­graph­ic vot­er pro­files built in part with data from Face­book — and whether Cam­bridge Analytica’s data-min­ing busi­ness would return under new aus­pices. . . . In recent months, exec­u­tives at Cam­bridge Ana­lyt­i­ca and SCL Group, along with the Mer­cer fam­i­ly, have moved to cre­at­ed a new firm, Emer­da­ta, based in Britain, accord­ing to British records. The new company’s direc­tors include John­son Ko Chun Shun, a Hong Kong financier and busi­ness part­ner of Erik Prince. . . . An exec­u­tive and a part own­er of SCL Group, Nigel Oakes, has pub­licly described Emer­da­ta as a way of rolling up the two com­pa­nies under one new ban­ner. . . . ”

The pro­gram con­cludes with dis­cus­sion of Wik­iLeaks’ links to Chi­nese and Tibetan dis­si­dent activists and spec­u­la­tion about the CIA’s Edward Snow­den’s activ­i­ties in Hong Kong–the first stop on his inter­na­tion­al odyssey. In Hong Kong, he net­worked with Wik­iLeaks, who then facil­i­tat­ed his decamp­ment to Moscow. That trip was the open­ing gam­bit in the New Cold War.

In our next pro­gram, we will fur­ther dis­cuss Chi­na’s role as an inter­na­tion­al leader in Green tech­nol­o­gy and the impli­ca­tions of this for the Lithi­um Coup in Bolivia.


FTR #1084 The Turner Diaries, Leaderless Resistance and the Internet

Resum­ing analy­sis from our last pro­gram, we begin by review­ing and sup­ple­ment­ing dis­cus­sion about the con­ti­nu­ity of Nazism and fas­cism around the polit­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal milieu of  Sub­has Chan­dra Bose.

Surya Kumar Bose is pres­i­dent of the Indo-Ger­man asso­ci­a­tion. (S.K. Bose is the grand­nephew and acolyte of Sub­has Chan­dra Bose.) ” . . . . Surya, who has a soft­ware con­sul­tan­cy busi­ness in Ham­burg and is pres­i­dent of the Indo-Ger­man Asso­ci­a­tion . . . .”

We note the gen­e­sis of the Indo-Ger­man asso­ci­a­tion in Ger­many dur­ing World War II: ” . . . . ‘The DIG was set up on Sep­tem­ber 11, 1942, by Sub­hash Chan­dra Bose at Hotel Atlanta in Ham­burg.’ . . . . Bose recounts, adding that the DIG today is the largest bilat­er­al organ­i­sa­tion in Ger­many, with 27 branch­es. As a con­sul­tant he often guides Ger­mans keen on work­ing in the boom­ing Indi­an IT sec­tor. He is also a founder-mem­ber of the Ger­man-Indi­an Round Table, an infor­mal gath­er­ing that seeks to fur­ther mutu­al busi­ness inter­ests. . . .”

Note, also, Surya Kuma Bose’s net­work­ing with Alexan­der Werth, the Ger­man trans­la­tor for Sub­has Chan­dra Bose’s Ger­man forces, which were fold­ed into the Waf­fen SS at the end of World War II. ” . . . . Back in the day, Netaji’s stay in Ger­many had proved instru­men­tal in shap­ing his strug­gle. Decades lat­er, that lega­cy would play a piv­otal role in shap­ing his grandnephew’s career. Bose came to Ger­many on the advice of Alexan­der Werth, Netaji’s Ger­man inter­preter in the Indi­an Legion. . . .”

In an audio seg­ment from 1985 (con­tained in FTR #1068), we accessed infor­ma­tion from Spies and Trai­tors of World War II by Kurt Singer.  That vol­ume, writ­ten just after World War II, notes the par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Ger­man-Indi­an Soci­ety of Ger­man intel­li­gence chief Admi­ral Wil­helm Canaris (head of the Abwehr.) This makes the DIG an ele­ment of polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, mil­i­tary and intel­li­gence con­ti­nu­ity from the World War II peri­od to the present.

Recap­ping infor­ma­tion about what we feel is an “Ille­gal Immi­grant Psy-Op,” we review the piv­otal role of a fake Face­book account in the gen­er­a­tion of the immi­grant car­a­van that became a pro­pa­gan­da foot­ball for Team Trump in the run-up to the 2018 mid-term elec­tions.

We also not­ed the mur­der of Mol­lie Tib­betts, alleged­ly by Chris­t­ian Rivera. Bear­ing sim­i­lar­i­ties to the mind-con­trol of RFK assas­si­na­tion pat­sy Sirhan Sirhan and the appar­ent role of the Pol­ka-Dot-Dress Girl in that gam­bit, Rivera “blacked out” and has no mem­o­ry of the mur­der.

Next we review Glenn Green­wald’s piv­otal role in run­ning legal inter­fer­ence for the lead­er­less resis­tance strat­e­gy, the lit­er­a­ture pub­lished  by the Nation­al Alliance, in par­tic­u­lar.

We then briefly detail the lead­er­less resis­tance strat­e­gy as set forth by Louis Beam, not­ing that the Inter­net, social media, chat groups and bul­letin boards dra­mat­i­cal­ly ampli­fy the reach of that strat­e­gy.

“The Turn­er Diaries,” pub­lished by the Nation­al Alliance, is high­ly influ­en­tial in the milieu of the lead­er­less resis­tance. A nov­el, it was craft­ed as an instruc­tion­al man­u­al and tool of ide­o­log­i­cal inspi­ra­tion to the Nazi move­ment.

Depict­ing a suc­cess­ful Nazi upris­ing against what is por­trayed as ZOG (Zion­ist Occu­pa­tion Gov­ern­ment), the book opens with the con­fis­ca­tion of firearms by the author­i­ties.

Although reac­tion to the recent shoot­ings in El Paso and Day­ton will not lead to the con­fis­ca­tion of firearms, any moves toward gun con­trol will be por­trayed as such in the fas­cist media and inter­net echo cham­ber.

In that con­text, we note that New Zealand shoot­er Bren­ton Tar­rant intend­ed his action to inspire  gun con­trol mea­sures in the U.S., which he  felt would lead to a Nazi upris­ing.

We con­clude with review of Tar­ran­t’s stay in Ukraine, and pos­si­ble net­work­ing with the Azov Bat­tal­ion.


A Nice, Healthy Glow

An impor­tant arti­cle appeared in “For­eign Pol­i­cy,” high­light­ing Depart­ment of Ener­gy rul­ings which will make access to radi­o­log­i­cal mate­ri­als eas­i­er. Now head­ed by Rick Perry–who advo­cat­ed abol­ish­ing the Depart­ment he now leads–the agency has facil­i­tat­ed the poten­tial use of radi­o­log­i­cal mate­r­i­al by ter­ror­ists, Nazi/White Suprema­cists, in par­tic­u­lar. Impor­tant in that con­text, is the pres­ence of White Suprema­cist Matthew Gebert in the State Depart­men­t’s Bureau of Ener­gy Resources, charged with pro­mot­ing ener­gy secu­ri­ty: ” . . . . Mean­while, on Aug. 9, the U.S. State Depart­ment con­firmed that Matthew Gebert, a for­eign affairs offi­cer assigned to the Bureau of Ener­gy Resources, was linked to a white nation­al­ist orga­ni­za­tion. One of the main goals of the Bureau of Ener­gy Resources is pro­mot­ing ener­gy secu­ri­ty. In 2018, Gebert alleged­ly told a pod­cast, ‘[Whites] need a coun­try of our own with nukes, and we will retake this thing lick­ety split.’ . . . .” We also note that the Steam online gam­ing site–home to Nazi/White Suprema­cist mes­sag­ing and 173 sites pro­mot­ing school shootings–has gam­ing mate­r­i­al involv­ing “Dirty Bombs.” Per­haps we will hear more from that direc­tion.


“The Turner Diaries” and Gun Control: Progressives Playing Into the Hands of The Leaderless Resistance

In FTR #456, we not­ed “The Turn­er Diaries” and: 1) Author William Luther Pierce’s 1998 fore­shad­ow­ing of the 9/11 attacks; 2) the fact that the cli­mac­tic episode of the book is a low-lev­el, sui­cide aer­i­al attack on the Pen­ta­gon; 3) The sui­cide attack on the Pen­ta­gon takes place on Novem­ber 9th (the Nazi day of des­tiny that would be writ­ten “9/11” by a Ger­man); 4) the protagonist–Earl Turner–desires the destruc­tion of a 100-sto­ry sky­scraper in mid-town Man­hat­tan; 5) the upris­ing by the Nazi group The Order begins with the Gov­ern­ment con­fis­cat­ing firearms. Calls by so-called pro­gres­sives for Gun Con­trol play right into the hands of the Lead­er­less Resis­tance, who will dis­tort and pro­pa­gan­dize any firearms leg­is­la­tion in such a way as to rein­force their ide­ol­o­gy. Christchurch New Zealand shoot­er Bren­ton Tar­raant intend­ed his crime, in part, to spur calls for gun con­trol, which he felt would lead to civ­il war.


FTR #1072 Doin’ Wind Sprints with the Snake in Ukraine

We pro­ceed from our pre­vi­ous pro­gram with con­tin­ued read­ing of an arti­cle about the rise of fas­cism in Ukraine that details the numer­ous, mul­ti-faceted exam­ples of the cap­ture of Ukrain­ian soci­ety and gov­ern­ment by the OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions ele­vat­ed to pow­er through the Maid­an coup. Yet, as the arti­cle notes at the end, its many exam­ples were just a small sam­pling of what has tran­spired in Ukraine since 2014.

We have spo­ken repeat­ed­ly about the Nazi tract Ser­pen­t’s Walk, in which the Third Reich goes under­ground, buys into the opin­ion-form­ing media and, even­tu­al­ly, takes over.

Hitler, the Third Reich and their actions are glo­ri­fied and memo­ri­al­ized. The essence of the book is syn­op­sized on the back cov­er:

“It assumes that Hitler’s war­rior elite — the SS — did­n’t give up their strug­gle for a White world when they lost the Sec­ond World War. Instead their sur­vivors went under­ground and adopt­ed some of their tac­tics of their ene­mies: they began build­ing their eco­nom­ic mus­cle and buy­ing into the opin­ion-form­ing media. 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.’ ”

Some­thing anal­o­gous is hap­pen­ing in Ukraine and India.

In Ukraine, fas­cism in being remade as a hero­ic bul­wark against com­mu­nism and Rus­sia. In India, it is being remade as a lib­er­at­ing anti-colo­nial, anti-impe­r­i­al force.

In FTR #889, we not­ed that Pierre Omid­yar, a dar­ling of the so-called “pro­gres­sive” sec­tor for his found­ing of The Inter­cept, was deeply involved with the financ­ing of the ascent of both Naren­dra Mod­i’s Hin­dut­va fas­cist BJP and the OUN/B suc­ces­sor orga­ni­za­tions in Ukraine.

Omid­yar’s anoint­ment as an icon of inves­tiga­tive report­ing could not be more iron­ic, in that jour­nal­ists and crit­ics of his fas­cist allies in Ukraine and India are being repressed and mur­dered, there­by fur­ther­ing the sup­pres­sion of truth in those soci­eties. This sup­pres­sion of truth feeds in to the Ser­pen­t’s Walk sce­nario.

The Snake is doing wind sprints in the  U.S. as well.

We have not­ed the pho­to of Bara­boo, Wis­con­sin high school stu­dents giv­ing the Nazi salute at their junior prom.

Now, Bara­boo Ukrain­ian-Amer­i­can youth have erect­ed stat­ues of Ukrain­ian pogromist Simonon Petlu­ra (translit­er­at­ed spellings vary), along with Ukrain­ian Nazi lead­ers Roman Shukhevych and Stephan Ban­dera.

This is to be seen against the back­ground of the re-insti­tu­tion of OUN/B fas­cists in Ukraine.

To pro­vide his­tor­i­cal and polit­i­cal con­text to the dis­cus­sion, we con­clude the broad­cast with infor­ma­tion sup­ple­ment­ing pre­vi­ous analy­sis of the devel­op­ment of “The Chris­t­ian West.” It is with­in the cre­ation of The Chris­t­ian West that the foun­da­tion of the present, unfor­tu­nate devel­op­ments is to be found.In FTR #‘s 1058, 1059, 1060, we revis­it­ed the con­cept of “The Chris­t­ian West”: ” . . . . When it became clear that the armies of the Third Reich were going to be defeat­ed, it opened secret nego­ti­a­tions with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the West­ern Allies. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives on both sides belonged to the transat­lantic finan­cial and indus­tri­al fra­ter­ni­ty that had active­ly sup­port­ed fas­cism. The thrust of these nego­ti­a­tions was the estab­lish­ment of The Chris­t­ian West. Viewed by the Nazis as a vehi­cle for sur­viv­ing mil­i­tary defeat, ‘The Chris­t­ian West’ involved a Hitler-less Reich join­ing with the U.S., Britain, France and oth­er Euro­pean nations in a transat­lantic, pan-Euro­pean anti-Sovi­et alliance. In fact, The Chris­t­ian West became a real­i­ty only after the ces­sa­tion of hos­til­i­ties. The de-Naz­i­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many was abort­ed. Although a few of the more obvi­ous and obnox­ious ele­ments of Nazism were removed, Nazis were returned to pow­er at vir­tu­al­ly every lev­el and in almost every capac­i­ty in the Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many. . . .”

In FTR #1009, we detailed “Chris­t­ian West” nego­ti­a­tions to have a Hitler-less Third Reich join with the West­ern Allies, under­tak­en by OSS rep­re­sen­ta­tives Allen Dulles and William Dono­van, net­work­ing with Prince Max Egon von Hohen­lo­he, a proxy for SD offi­cer Wal­ter Schel­len­berg.

In in his 1985 vol­ume Amer­i­can Swasti­ka, the late author Charles High­am pro­vides us with insight into the Chris­t­ian West con­cept, reveal­ing the extent to which these SS/OSS nego­ti­a­tions set the tem­plate for the post-World War II world, as well as the degree of res­o­nance that key Amer­i­cans, such as Allen Dulles, had with Nazi ide­ol­o­gy, anti-Semi­tism in par­tic­u­lar.

The post­war polit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic real­i­ties of the Dulles, Hohen­lo­he, Schel­len­berg meet­ings were fur­ther solid­i­fied when William (Wild Bill) Dono­van entered into his “M” Project.

Impor­tant to note in this con­text, is the dom­i­nant role in world affairs played by car­tels, the fun­da­men­tal ele­ment in the indus­tri­al and finan­cial axis that was essen­tial to the cre­ation and per­pet­u­a­tion of fas­cism. Much of the Third Reich’s mil­i­tary indus­tri­al com­plex, the pri­ma­cy of Ger­many in the post­war EU, as well as the cor­re­la­tion between post­war Europe as con­struct­ed in the Chris­t­ian West nego­ti­a­tions and long-stand­ing Ger­man plans for Euro­pean dom­i­na­tion are deriv­a­tive of the pow­er of car­tels.

The Chris­t­ian West and “M” Projects:

1.–Revealed that Allen Dulles’ views res­onat­ed with Third Reich anti-Semi­tism, and that his opin­ions were shared by oth­er, like-mind­ed Amer­i­can pow­er bro­kers: ” . . . . He said that it would be unbear­able for any decent Euro­pean to think that the Jews might return some­day, and that there must be no tol­er­a­tion of a return of the Jew­ish pow­er posi­tions. . . . He made the curi­ous asser­tion that the Amer­i­cans were only con­tin­u­ing the war to get rid of the Jews and that there were peo­ple in Amer­i­ca who were intend­ing to send the Jews to Africa. . . .”
2.–Set the tem­plate for the post­war Fed­er­al Repub­lic of Ger­many and the EU: ” . . . . He [Dulles] reit­er­at­ed his desire for a greater Euro­pean polit­i­cal federation–and fore­saw the fed­er­al Ger­many that in fact took place. . . . Ger­many would be set up as the dom­i­nat­ing force in indus­try and agri­cul­ture in con­ti­nen­tal Europe, at the heart of a con­ti­nen­tal state run by Ger­many, the U.S.A., and Great Britain as a focus of trade. . . .”
3.–Were the vehi­cle for Allen Dulles to betray much of the Allied mil­i­tary plans for South­ern Europe to the Third Reich: “. . . . Dulles now pro­ceed­ed to sup­ply Hohen­lo­he with dol­lops of secret intel­li­gence, announc­ing that the U.S. Army would not land in Spain but, after con­quer­ing Tunisia, would advance from Africa toward the Ploesti oil fields to cut off the Ger­man oil sup­plies. He said it was like­ly the Allies would land in Sici­ly to cut off Rom­mel and con­trol Italy from there, and thus secure the advance in the Balka­ns. Hav­ing giv­en vir­tu­al­ly the entire bat­tle plan for Europe, top secret at the time, to one of Ger­many’s agents, Allen Dulles pro­ceed­ed to the almost unnec­es­sary rid­er that he had very good rela­tions with the Vat­i­can. . . .”
4.–Directly fore­shad­owed the con­fronta­tion between the U.S. and the Sovi­et Union which became the Cold War.  “. . . . In oth­er meet­ings, Dulles . . . . pre­dict­ed that ‘the next world war would be between the U.S.A. and the Sovi­et Union.’ . . . .”
5.–Were the occa­sion for Dulles to laud the “genius” of Nazi pro­pa­gan­da min­is­ter Joseph Goebbels: “He . . . . described a recent speech by Dr. Goebbels as ‘a work of genius; I have rarely read a speech with such ratio­nal plea­sure.’ . . . .”


“Day‑X”

A recent “New York Times” arti­cle about the Free­dom Par­ty’s ascent to becom­ing a coali­tion part­ner in the Aus­tri­an gov­ern­ment not­ed the “fas­cist file seizure” that fol­lowed Aus­tri­a’s domes­tic intel­li­gence ser­vice’s refusal to turn over a list of infil­tra­tors into far right orga­ni­za­tions in Aus­tria (part of the Third Reich dur­ing World War II.) We cov­ered this in FTR #1016. The for­mer head of that domes­tic intel­li­gence ser­vice likened the raid to “Day‑X,” the time fore­seen and her­ald­ed by Nazis as the occa­sion of their seizure of pow­er. ” . . . . In far-right cir­cles, the vaunt­ed day neo-Nazis take pow­er in a putsch is her­ald­ed as “Day X.” For some, like Ms. Geissler, that day is less fan­tas­ti­cal than it may seem. ” . . . . ‘I have to hon­est­ly say, since I have been work­ing in the far-right extrem­ism area for a very long time and have a lot of infor­ma­tion, my first thought was: This is it, it’s Day X,’ she recalled in a par­lia­men­tary hear­ing last year, describ­ing the raid. . . .” Above, right, is a pic­ture of SS gen­er­al Anton Reinthaler, the founder of the Free­dom Par­ty, begun as a vehi­cle for re-intro­duc­ing Third Reich vet­er­ans into the Aus­tri­an polit­i­cal process. This picture–worth at least 1,000 words–would indi­cate that “Day‑X” arrived some time ago.
