Why Did Gerard Williams and Simon Dunstan Receive Death Threats for Writing About Hitler’s Escape?

In FTR #791, we pre­sent­ed the research of Ger­rard Williams and Simon Dun­stan indi­cat­ing that Allen Dulles and Mar­tin Bor­mann struck a deal to effect the escape of Adolf Hitler. The authors have been receiv­ing death threats: “. . . Yes­ter­day . . .Williams. . . . said: ‘We have ruf­fled some very big feath­ers. Tra­di­tion­al his­to­ri­ans don’t like it and cer­tain gov­ern­ments don’t like it. We have had some death threats already.’ ” 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. Dave offers his pro­grams and arti­cles for free–your sup­port is very much appre­ci­at­ed.


FTR #887 Miscellaneous Articles and Updates

The ongo­ing occu­pa­tion of an Ore­gon wildlife pre­serve in Ore­gon by para­mil­i­tary forces led by Ammon Bundy (son of Cliv­en Bundy) may seem far removed from the gild­ed realms in which the Koch Broth­ers move. They may also appear to be of an entire­ly dif­fer­ent polit­i­cal stripe from the likes of Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange. That is not the case. In fact, the “Bundy­ists” are real­iz­ing the agen­da of the Wise Use move­ment and the Koch broth­ers, both advo­cates of ced­ing con­trol of fed­er­al lands to local con­trol, in order that cor­po­rate inter­ests such as tim­ber, min­ing and cat­tle ranch­ing can use the ter­ri­to­ry for their own use and prof­it. By the same token, the likes of Edward Snow­den and Julian Assange have arro­gat­ed to them­selves the use, con­trol and dis­sem­i­na­tion of sen­si­tive infor­ma­tion that was not theirs to own or dis­trib­ute. David Golum­bia not­ed the atti­tude of “coders” such as Snow­den, Assange and “hack­tivists ” . . . the polit­i­cal world is theirs to do with what they want, and the rest of us should stay out of it . . . mem­bers of demo­c­ra­tic poli­ties have no choice but to accept them hav­ing that role.” Turn­ing to tur­moil in Europe, the recent assaults on women by Mid­dle East­ern immi­grants in Ger­man, Finnish and oth­er cities on the con­ti­nent have fueled the rise of fas­cist groups, mint­ing valu­able polit­i­cal coinage from the assaults. Some observers com­pared a recent ram­page in Leipzig with the 1938 Kristall­nacht pogrom. The broad­cast con­cludes with an overview of P‑2 Lodge grand­mas­ter Licio Gel­li, the recent­ly deceased fas­cist who pro­found­ly influ­enced events on three con­ti­nents. Pro­gram High­lights Include: Fred C. Koch’s con­struc­tion of an oil refin­ery for Hitler; Ex-CIA offi­cer and author Robert Baer’s belief that Hitler escaped Ger­many at the end of the war; review of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Fox News host Andrew Napoli­tano and Snow­den Pres­i­den­tial can­di­date of choice Ron Paul at a lib­er­tar­i­an stu­dents con­fer­ence; review of the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Edward Snow­den at that same con­fer­ence; review of Carl Lund­strom’s financ­ing of the anti-immi­grant Swe­den Demo­c­rat fas­cist par­ty and his fund­ing of the Pirate Bay web­site that host­ed Wik­iLeaks.


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 #874 Update on Fascism and the New Age

In this pro­gram, we con­tin­ue our inter­mit­tent exam­i­na­tion of areas of over­lap between the New Age and fas­cism. In FTR #873, we exam­ined how the Atlantis myth has fed direct­ly into Nazi occultism and “poly­ge­n­e­sis,” a key fea­ture of sci­en­tif­ic racism. Inex­tri­ca­bly linked with the notion of space aliens hav­ing spawned the “Aryan race,” the con­cept of Atlantis has spawned the enter­prise of J.Z. Knight, aka “Ramtha.” Pur­port­ing to be the chan­neled spir­it of a 35,000-year-old Atlantean/Lemurian war­rior, Ramtha/Knight have dis­sem­i­nat­ed a racist, anti-Semit­ic phi­los­o­phy. Next, we turn to exam­i­na­tion of a major con­stel­la­tion in the New Age firmament–the Insti­tute of Noet­ic Sci­ences. Based in Petaluma, Cal­i­for­nia, the insti­tute was co-found­ed by SS offi­cer, Third Reich and NASA rock­et sci­en­tist and Project Paper­clip import Wern­er von Braun. Anoth­er of the co-founders is for­mer EXXON exec­u­tive Paul Tem­ple, who also is deeply involved with Abra­ham Verei­de’s Fel­low­ship Foun­da­tion. In FTR #697, we exam­ined the strong con­nec­tions between Verei­de’s group, the Third Reich and post-war Under­ground Reich-con­nect­ed ele­ments. After exam­in­ing Josef F. Blum­rich, a key NASA offi­cial and alum­nus of the Third Reich’s aero­space indus­try who advo­cates con­tact between the ancients and UFOs/space aliens, we con­clude with a re-broad­cast of FTR #170, detail­ing “The Nine.” Over­lap­ping many aspects of the New Age, The Nine pur­port to be the ancient gods of Egypt, extrater­res­tri­als and many oth­er man­i­fes­ta­tions of the New Age. Appar­ent­ly evolved from ele­ments of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty’s mind con­trol pro­grams, The Nine also rein­force the con­cept of poly­ge­n­e­sis.


FTR #873 The New Age, Fascism and the Atlantis Myth

The gulf between Nazism and the so-called New Age might seem to be so wide as to be unbridge­able. Sad­ly, that is not the case.

At the core of Nazi belief was occultism, draw­ing on Pan-Ger­man­ic mythol­o­gy deriv­ing from the Thule Soci­ety, arios­o­phy, ele­ments of Hin­du reli­gious doc­trine and more com­mon­ly rec­og­niz­able belief sys­tems such as astrol­o­gy. The SS Ahnenerbe drew togeth­er many of these threads and anoint­ed them with a man­tle of respectabil­i­ty. As a result, New Age sects and reli­gion have fre­quent­ly dove­tailed with ele­ments of Nazi and fas­cist phi­los­o­phy.

We intro­duce the theme of the pro­gram with dis­cus­sion of some huge works of art in Kaza­khstan. Note that an ana­lyst referred dis­mis­sive­ly to the notion that these were built by ancient astro­nauts linked to Hitler, Atlantis, the Hyper­bore­ans, Lemuria and/or any num­ber of com­mon focal points of Nazi occultism. One of the prin­ci­ple fea­tures of the “Nazi/Atlantis/New Age syn­the­sis” is a fun­da­men­tal­ly racist con­cept called “poly­ge­n­e­sis.” Inher­ent in the con­tention that parts of the human species orig­i­nat­ed from out­er space, Atlantis, etc., poly­ge­n­e­sis is cen­tral to the “sci­en­tif­ic racism” prop­a­gat­ed by eugeni­cists and their Nazi pupils. Among the edi­fices sit­ed by occult poly­ge­n­e­sis advo­cates is Tiwanaku in Bolivia, seen by SS offi­cer Edmund Kiss as proof of the set­tle­ment of Latin Amer­i­ca by “Aryans” from Atlantis, Hyper­borea, Lemuria etc.

The notion of an ancient, Aryan-con­trolled past brought low by “sub-humans,” (gen­er­al­ly grouped around “Da Joos”) recalls a com­mon fea­ture of fascism–a pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with a long-gone, ide­al­ized past. The pro­gram high­lights the polit­i­cal and reli­gious phi­los­o­phy of “eso­teric Nazism,” a sub­ject we will explore in our next pro­gram as well. One of the prime expo­nents of “eso­teric Nazism” was Miguel Ser­ra­no, a Chilean Nazi who was also dis­cussed in our con­ver­sa­tions with Peter Lev­en­da.

Fus­ing tra­di­tion­al Nazi anti-Semi­tism with var­i­ous occult strains, Ser­ra­no posit­ed that the Nazis and Hitler were the man­i­fes­ta­tion of an oth­er­world­ly and supe­ri­or civ­i­liza­tion which would ulti­mate­ly tri­umph after an apoc­a­lyp­tic, cat­a­stroph­ic war involv­ing UFOs, Aryans from Antarc­ti­ca, “Hyper­borea” etc. The Nazi/New Age/Atlantis the­o­ry pre-sup­pos­es a myth­ic, ide­al­ized past and exem­pli­fies the notion of Nazism as a cult–a form of weaponized reli­gion.


FTR #870 The Underground Reich and Indonesia

This pro­gram is set against the back­ground of our recent dis­cus­sions with Peter Lev­en­da about the pro­found Nazi pres­ence in Indone­sia before, dur­ing and after World War II. The bloody 1965 coup against Sukarno is known to have been large­ly engi­neered by the CIA. We now learn that the BND–the Ger­man for­eign intel­li­gence ser­vice and the final incar­na­tion of the Gehlen spy outfit–played a major role in the coup, as well. The appar­ent BND point man for the Fed­er­al Repub­lic’s role in the coup was Rudolf Oeb­s­ger-Roder, like so many Gehlen org offi­cers, a vet­er­an of the SS. The sec­ond half of the broad­cast con­sists of a read­ing of a sec­tion of Ter­ence McKen­na’s book “True Hal­lu­ci­na­tions.” McKen­na alleged­ly came across a Ger­man min­ing engi­neer work­ing for what may well have been the post-war Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work.


Gehlen, BND, and the Indonesian Coup of 1965

The bloody 1965 coup against Sukarno is known to have been large­ly engi­neered by the CIA, which had pur­sued oper­a­tion “Arch­i­pel­ago” since the 1950’s. The BND–the Ger­man for­eign intel­li­gence ser­vice and the final incar­na­tion of the Gehlen spy outfit–played a major role in the coup, as well, appar­ent­ly guid­ed by Rudolf Oeb­s­ger-Roder, the SS vet­er­an and BND sta­tion chief.

FTR #865 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and “Unholy Alliance”

Rat­line high­lights the flight of a mys­te­ri­ous Nazi using the alias Georg Anton Poch. Iden­ti­fied as Hitler in a book pub­lished in Indone­sia, Poch was cer­tain­ly some­one of great impor­tance, though not nec­es­sar­i­ly Hitler. His odyssey sheds light on the Vat­i­can escape net­works known col­lec­tive­ly as “The Rat­line.” Who­ev­er he was, “Poch,” like so many Nazis, found suc­cor in the Vat­i­can. A Croa­t­ian priest–Father Draganovic–was one the prime movers of the Rat­line The sto­ry of the Rat­line and the Vat­i­can’s oper­a­tional sanc­tion­ing of the butch­ers of the Vat­i­can-backed Croa­t­ian Ustachi casts a dif­fer­ent his­tor­i­cal light on recent events. Pope Fran­cis’s vis­it to the Unit­ed States has dom­i­nat­ed the news cycle, with some cov­er­age going to the con­tro­ver­sy over his can­on­iza­tion of Father Juniper Ser­ra, regard­ed as a bru­tal oppres­sor by Native Amer­i­can archivists. What has received no sub­stan­tive cov­er­age is the pend­ing beat­i­fi­ca­tion of Arch­bish­op Stepinac, a mem­ber of the Ustachi par­lia­ment dur­ing World War II. Pro­gram High­lights Include: the stew­ard­ship of the main Ustachi con­cen­tra­tion camp Jasen­o­vac by Father Fil­ipovic, a Fran­cis­can priest; Fr. Fil­ipovic’s mur­der­ing of Ser­bian chil­dren with his bare hands; Oper­a­tion Bern­hard, a key Nazi coun­ter­feit­ing oper­a­tion; the many his­tor­i­cal out­growths of Bern­hard, includ­ing the oper­a­tions of the Rat­line; the use of Stepinac’s church to stash Nazi war loot; Ger­ald Pos­ner’s “point” role in lead­ing the Bor­mann-inspired dis­cred­i­ta­tion of Ladis­las Fara­go.


FTR #864 Interview with Peter Levenda about “Ratline” and Other Books

Immi­gra­tion has dom­i­nat­ed the news recent­ly, with the flood of refugees from the wars in the Mid­dle East over­whelm­ing Euro­pean infra­struc­ture as the phe­nom­e­non dom­i­nates polit­i­cal debate. Don­ald Trump cap­i­tal­izes on anti-immi­grant xeno­pho­bia to lead the field of pre­sump­tive GOP Pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates. In The Hitler Lega­cy, Peter not­ed anti-immi­grant sen­ti­ment and xeno­pho­bia as part of “The Hitler Lega­cy.” Turn­ing to what might be described as the “pre­quel” to The Hitler Lega­cy, we high­light “Rat­line.” Deal­ing with the sto­ry of the mys­te­ri­ous Dr. Anton Poch, we ana­lyze the dis­ap­pear­ance of Adolf Hitler. One of the main focal points of dis­cus­sion con­cerns the “offi­cial” ver­sion of Hitler’s death is The Last Days of Hitler by Hugh Trevor-Rop­er. Trevor-Rop­er was an agent for MI6 (British intel­li­gence) at the time and the writ­ing and pub­li­ca­tion of his book was, in and of itself, an intel­li­gence operation–a “psy-op” called Oper­a­tion Nurs­ery. Pro­gram High­lights Include: a com­par­i­son of Oper­a­tion Nurs­ery to the War­ren Com­mis­sion and its report; dis­cus­sion of Paul Lev­erkuhn, a Nazi spy who was the head of the Euro­pean Union when he attend­ed the first Bilder­berg meet­ing.
