This radio show by Dave Emory explores the heroic investigation of private citizen Rita Katz on Operation Green Quest that led to the Holy Land Foundation trial. Her work allowed us to unveil the deep penetration of the GOP and of the Bush Administration by islamist elements from the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Al-Qaeda. However, her research was eventually subverted and neutralized by members of the CIA and FBI. Among several things, Dave Emory explores the role eventually played by the Ptech firm, owned and controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, on the day of 9/11. In effect, the fact that it is Ptech that developped the threat assessment software used by the Air Force, the FAA and Norad could account for the confusion experienced on the morning of 9/11, which facilitated the attacks and delivered New York and Washington D.C. to hostile forces. Also, the role played by the Safa Trust and the SAAR network on the economic side of it is also explored, among other elements. Rita Katz has written a book titled Terrorist Hunter in which she chronicles the whole story.
(06-08-2012) N.B.: Before I let you read the article, here are a couple of points that I posted on SpitfireList.com on May 20th 2012 as a response to some criticism about the article from the website host. These remarks should serve as caveat, precisions, to be able to put into context the core of the text. I admit that this article was a reckless attempt, not necessarily successful, to explain and put into context something rather difficult to conceptualize. In the end, I think Obama is a good man but he is surrended by people who are not and who are trying to seize the occasion to do harm. Here it is:
Thanks for these remarks. I will clarify a few points just to be sure we agree on my positions concerning Obama and the rest. Maybe the writing of my article could be improved to reflect that.
First, I have never said that OBAMA killed Breitbart or that he wanted to kill him. He nevertheless signed, if I am not mistaken, an Executive Order that legalizes targetted assassinations of American citizens. Somebody else could have done it. Maybe.
Second, I have never said that Obama was third position. It is rather the crowd surrounding him and with whom he evolved that gives me that impression. For me, the Chicago milieu is bad and breeds radicals. But the right is not any better, of course.
Third, I agree, the Weathermen were probably agent provocateurs.
Fourth, concerning Israel, religious Zionism is probably wrong as you say, but we must not forget that Israelis face annihilation not only since 1922 (that’s 1917 in fact- Ed), year of the Balfour Declaration, but since the beginnings of Christianity. John Loftus’s The Secret War Against the Jews remains, for me, the best tool to understand the situation. When the fate of the Jews is secured, the state of Israel is secured, we will have plenty of time to criticize Zionism and Netanyahu or any other politician in place. I don’t like Netanyahu courting right-wingers, but there is not much of a choice. Obama is not favorable toward Israel and the U.S. has only two parties…
Fifth, yes, Obama is very different from Bush. Idealy, if we could combine the best of the two in just one candidate, that would be great. But unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that it seems.
I kept it brief and I hope it clarifies things.
The recent death of Andrew Breitbart has opened a Pandora’s box. The controversy has raged over the fact that he was very vocal during the whole month of February about releasing, on March 1st, some tapes that would irremediably hurt Barack Obama and seriously undermine his chances to get re-elected. Apparently, the videos show Barack Obama during his college days with radicals. The fact that he died only hours before having the occasion to do so, has led many in political circles to ask themselves whether or not Breitbart could have been eliminated. The sudden heart attack that brought him down is seen by certain people as possibly only the official version of the story. Well, we may never know what really happened. However, this event has opened a rift, so to speak, in the political analysis spectrum, and now certain connections from the past emerge on the surface. A first tape has been released on March 7th. It shows Barack Obama during his college days at Harvard University endorsing and hugging Derrick Bell, a controversial professor who expressed radical leftist ideas about race. The hugging part of the video was censored at the time of the Presidential Election to avoid doing any damage to Obama’s campaign.
A thread is common and I want to present it to you. Kevin Coogan, a marvelous author, has written a book titled Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International. This book presents the political philosophy of Francis Parker Yockey, a post-war fascist political thinker. In a nutshell, Yockey wanted to breed a new kind of fascism where nazism/fascism, communism and Islam would merge, along with elements characteristic of Third World sensibilities, to create a new form of fascism that didn’t exist before WWII. Uniting the Far-Left and the Far-Right, with the Iran of the Ayatollahs and the Nation of Islam, was a priority and a goal in itself for him. Lire la suite
This great interview with Robert Parry of the Consortiumnews website by anti-fascist researcher Dave Emory must be listened to. For lots of reasons but especially because we never get to hear the full story in the mainstream media, as well as in the so-called « alternative » media, on anything. It is always one side of the coin only, if ever one side is covered correctly without ideological biases, preconceptions, prejudices, etc. The received rhetorical line concerning 9/11 and its aftermath goes like this: « The evil Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaeda warriors have attacked America. George W. Bush, as a true Commander-in-Chief, has stood up against these bloodthirsty terrorists and he is making sure that America stays safe and secure. He has struck back at them by going to war in Afghanistan and in Iraq ». That’s the way it goes.
Well…like it is often the case in life, it is not that simple. To begin with, let me remind you of a couple of things. First, in 2001, the Bushes and the bin Ladens were on the board of directors of the Carlyle Group, which Dave Emory has studied and presented in For The Record # 347. The Carlyle Group is one of the most influential investment firms of the world. Only the greatest of all get the chance to sit on that precious panel. And on the day of September 11th 2001, they just happened to hold their annual investment conference. Probably only just a coincidence, one could say. Members could then watch live the events unfolding in Manhattan. Among others, Frank Carlucci and James Baker III were present. Second, let me remind you as well that on September 12th, when nobody else could fly in the U.S., 12 members of the bin Laden family were flown out of the country. Third, both the chief of intelligence for Saudi Arabia and the head of the FBI were replaced in the weeks just prior to 9/11, which is rather curious and frightening, to say the least.
All things considered, the « war on terror » has been good for both the Bushes and the bin Ladens. For George W. Bush, this war has allowed him to be in the spotlight and be admired as the great defender of America, to acquire additional powers for his presidency and finally to shout out all those who were contesting (rightfully) the validity of his election at the detriment of Al Gore. And for the bin Ladens, the war on terror allowed Osama to strengthen the cause of Al Qaeda and recruit new warriors. In 2004, only four days before the presidential election, Osama bin Laden released a video in which he denounced George W. Bush. Intelligence analysts at the CIA were of the opinion that Osama bin Laden was in fact trying to help George W. getting reelected. In effect, such a virulent attack against Bush by Osama before the election was obviously recuperated by the Republican team as an endorsement of John Kerry. That was enough to swing the vote in favor of George W. And why would Osama do such a thing, would you ask? Because Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda didn’t want the U.S. out of Iraq, U.S. troops being too good for the cause of Al Qaeda.
Mr Parry talks about a lot of other different relevant points. One of them is the obvious biased coverage by the press of the performance of Democrat politicians. Robert Parry explains that a game of professional credibility assessment was at play in the media, as Conservative politicians were quite often accusing journalists of being « liberal ». Reporters reacted to these accusations by becoming harder and tougher on Democrats, unfairly most of the times, to establish their credibility, with the unfortunate consequence that Al Gore was treated miserably. Parry gives many examples. This is a great show. In order to listen to the audio archive, you must have Realaudio installed.
This nice interview with Martin Lee by anti-fascist researcher and radio personality Dave Emory is a great follow up to A Fireside Chat. In that program, Dave Emory takes the time to explain the concept of the Underground Reich and its implications for today and for our lives. In this chat, FTR #81, Martin Lee takes the opportunity to present his masterpiece work The Beast Reawakens. That book remains a milestone in the understanding of current events in terms of a return of fascism since the end of WWII but especially since the reunification of Germany. More precisely, it tries to underline the signs that are visible out there that the « beast » is effectively in a process of reawakening. We can see it in many different things and Martin Lee brings us to realize the scope of its implications. Among the many subjects Lee passes on, we find the rise of anti-semitism in the German Army, the use of psychological warfare on populations, the National Alliance, the role played by the Wehrmacht, the operations « Stay Behind », the pro-fascist junta in Greece, the militia, Elohim City, the Oklahoma City Bombing, etc.
At one point, Dave Emory brings the concept of « perceived discontinuity » in trying to explain the incapacity of a lot of people to understand things that are taking place and to read them correctly. In effect, if things look discontinuous, one might be tempted to conclude that there are no relationship between what is happening today and what happened in the past, several decades ago. That’s a very good point and I would add that it is probably an engineered one, for the very reason that it is necessary for the gradual and insidious implementation of fascism.
Raynald Desjardins, ancien bras droit du parrain Vito Rizzuto, est accusé du meurtre de Salvatore Montagna, un ancien dirigeant par intérim de la famille mafieuse new-yorkaise des Bonanno, survenu le 24 novembre dernier à Charlemagne. Desjardins avait été la cible d’un attentat raté le 16 septembre dernier, à Laval. Suite au meurtre de Montagna, un « contrat » aurait été mis sur la tête de Desjardins. Le début des procédures pour meurtre intentées contre Desjardins se sont donc fait sous haute surveillance. Or, ce qui est particulier dans ce dossier, c’est que le tribunal refuse de divulguer toutes les preuves qui ont servi à inculper Desjardins, à la defense. Seules des considérations de sécurité nationale, de terrorisme ou de possibles atteintes à la vie de personnes peuvent justifier la retenue de ces preuves. En effet, il appert que la police aurait réussi à décoder le protocole de communication crypté développé par la compagnie RIM, fabriquant le Blackberry. Me Claude Olivier, un des avocats de la défense, se dit surpris que la GRC puisse être en mesure de déchiffrer ces communications puisque, dit-il, « le FBI n’est pas capable de le faire ». Certaines questions se posent donc, à savoir si, par hasard, RIM n’aurait pas collaboré avec la police en partageant des renseignements. Aussi, on est droit de se demander quelle pouvait bien être la nature des conversations qui ont eu lieu.
En dernier ressort, la vraie raison qui doit bien motiver la retenue par le tribunal de ces preuves envoyées et enregistrées par les appareils Blackberry demeure probablement l’avantage technologique. En effet, pour que la police et les services de renseignements puissent détecter et désamorcer des attentats en préparation ou autres crimes majeurs, ils doivent avoir une « coche » d’avance sur ceux qui voudraient utiliser la technologie pour leurs fins personnelles et ainsi causer du tort à la collectivité. On ne saura jamais probablement ce qu’il y avait dans ces messages mais je me dis que notre ignorance vaut bien mieux que des groupes islamistes, terroristes, nazis, d’extrême-gauche, d’extrême-droite et autres totalitaires puissent prendre connaissance de la façon de déchiffrer le code crypté de RIM. Je vous propose une courte entrevue avec Me Claude Olivier sur les ondes de l’émission de Paul Arcand du 98,5 FM, ainsi que quelques articles faisant le tour des faits principaux.
The U.S. Senate and House have just approved a very dangerous bill that could mark the end of democracy itself in America. Here are the reflections of a few significant personalities who have very interesting things to say about it and its implications for our lives, the future of western society and for the principle of democracy to begin with. First, let’s hear Coleen Rowley and Susan Lindauer on the Peter B. Collins radio show. Next, a recent blog entry by radio host personality Dave Emory presents a similar analysis: It could reveal to be the end of democracy itself in the U.S.
