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.
This is part 2 of an interview that Fara Mansoor, a member of the Iranian Resistance, gave to radio host Dave Emory in January and March 1993, on three separate shows. In part 1, we saw that the 1979 hostage crisis in Iran was in fact a coup d’état in which the Republican branch of the CIA replaced the cancer ill Shah of Iran with Ayatollah Khomenei. The general idea of this coup was to replace the Shah with somebody fiercely anti-communist and, at the same time, to destabilize Jimmy Carter relatively enough to make him lose the next Presidential Election. In this second part of the interview, we now learn that Iran may have nuclear capability since 1974. This story is rather complex and involves a lot of names, dates and characters. So, instead of trying to present the integrality of it, I will rather illustrate the spearhead from which you will be able to continue the research. Note here that we have to remember that Iran, as a country, was a key component in a strategy to create and consolidate a military and ideological bulwark against communism.
According to Fara Mansoor’s investigation, the CIA provided nuclear capability to Iran during the time of the transition from Richard Nixon to Gerald Ford, in 1974. It was accomplished through an Iranian-born and American citizen nuclear scientist, sent by the CIA, named Dr Mojtba Taherzadh. At this time, Taherzadh was working for Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. When he arrived in mid-1974 from the U.S., Taherzadh was placed at the head of the Nuclear Research Center in Iran. Then, he began researching and installing nuclear technology capable of producing nuclear weapons. In July 6th 1976, Dr Taherzadh signed a deal with Gifted Ink, one of Albert Hakim‘s companies, in order to acquire laser equipment to enrich weapon’s grade uranium. The sell export of this technology, fabricated by the Lischem corporation, was illegal at the time, so Hakim’s partner in Gifted Ink, Naim Perry, arranged with a CIA contact to smuggle it out of the country through U.S. Customs. Nevertheless, Bush Administration warnings at the time were saying that Iran might have obtained nuclear technology through China, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and North Korea. Also, we have to remember that during these years, Iran signed contracts with France and the U.S. to obtain nuclear reactors. During this several hour interview, Fara Mansoor continues to present all the details and connections that need to be stressed out in relation with this event. To get the full story, please listen to the full interview and take notes. Continuer la lecture
In this series of shows, Dave Emory exposes the bogus claims that the world is running out of oil. Underwritten by a group of people with a nazi agenda, this philosophy could very well set the conditions for a massive genocide. In the short term, this theory assures oil corporations enormous profits as prices at the pump explode. In effect, if oil becomes so precious, humanity, or its leaders more accurately, would have to decide who deserves to get food and who doesn’t, food being transported by vans, trucks, trains and boats that use gasoline. « Intelligence » and « studies » that say that the world is running out of oil are phony. We still have hundreds of years of fuel reserves. So check this shows by radio host Dave Emory on the links between the Peak Oil propaganda, fascism and genocide.
Since 9/11, anti-fascist researcher and radio host Dave Emory has made considerable efforts to convince people not to join the « Truthers ». For those who don’t know, the Truthers are these political activists who try to convince America and the world that 9/11 was an « inside job » and that explosives or missiles were used to bring down the WTC. Of course, everything Truthers present is just an amount of B.S. Real science and just pure good common sense prove it rather quickly. However, there are still people drawn to these bogus explanations. And for reason. Their media representatives are good, talented and they manage to convince at least a part of the crowd. After studying them for several years, I came to the conclusion that the Truthers were in fact the media apparatus of a fifth column in waiting in the U.S. to overthrow the goverment. Their job is to cover the tracks of the real perpetrators of 9/11. Their rhetoric is overtly fascist, if you take the time to listen. FTR #599 show that follows is one the best presentation made to debunk the fallacious claims of the Truthers. Emory accessed various documents and studies produced by industry professionals expert in the field of controlled demolition (italics mine: L.d.). These must not be mistaken for the so-called « Engineers for Truth » about 9/11, who are as bogus as their claims. Brent Blanchard of Protec Documentation Services company has produced a document that is controlled-demolishing piece by piece the assertions of the Truthers.
In a nushell, what I want you to realize is that this line of rhetoric is the product of a fifth column ready to and trying to seize power. Don’t listen to their sirens. Because once you kiss them, you will realize that they are sharks in fact, and it could be too late. I have added another blog post by Dave Emory dealing with this topic and a second website you can visit, besides all the above mentioned, hoping that it will convince you to flush this so-called « truth » about 9/11.
Peter B. Collins receives Brad Friedman of BradBlog.com with groundbreaking news. Friedman succeeded to get access to a recording of the Summer Seminar organized by the Koch brothers in 2011 in Vail, Colorado. An anonymous source who participated in this activity taped key portions of this Seminar, featuring both Charles and David Koch, Governor Chris Christie and Judge Napolitano, and provided Brad Friedman with the recording. Friedman posted the complete audio and transcript of it on his blog and released the story as well to Mother Jones publication. Well, the revelations of this recording are so juicy and crusty. While listening to this tape, we have the « pleasure » of hearing Charles Koch referring curiously to Saddam Hussein while he speaks about defeating Obama, David Koch talking about Governor Chris Christie as « my kind of guy », speakers describing how the rich are the victims of an evil Obama, and how Democrats have been stupid (I agree with that statement!) to accept cuts in social programs and the social safety net, etc. Overall, you will hear a bunch of ultra-rich potentates showing absolutely no respect for the poor and the people who suffer in the lower classes. After years of constant attacks and attempts to rob and crush the poor and the middle class in the U.S. during the Bush Administration, a « second wave » is now under way with these neo-extreme-right activists, who for the most part stay in the shadows, well hidden behind the Tea Party useful fools. But now they have been masterfully exposed and showed for what they trully are by this anonymous inside source and by investigative journalist Brad Friedman. I have joined the podcast of Brad Friedman’s interview with Peter B. Collins, some of the related articles published on Mother Jones, and the integral audio files and transcripts of the recording of the Summer Seminar, posted on BradBlog.com. Excellent work, guys! Excellent anti-fascist researcher Dave Emory has been working as well on the Koch brothers case for some time. In particular, FTR #726 is of great interest to get acquainted more with these shadowy figures of American politics. What the Koch brothers are proposing to America leads directly to fascism. In effect, their machinations and use of the Tea Party clearly intends to repel the New Deal implemented by Roosevelt to replace it by something that would go along the lines of Mussolini’s Corporate State.

I will try in this post to do the impossible: assemble and summarize the most important elements of information available on 9/11 but that are not, for the most part, belonging to the official version. I rely for this, as it is often the case, on Dave Emory’s research, and as well on other sources, such as Daniel Hopsicker’s investigative reporting and John Loftus’ vast knowledge in intelligence. This is definitely the most complicated, complex, deep and troubling file probably of all modern times, so please bear with me. I have already presented the financial and economical aspects of 9/11 in an earlier post, so check it out for more information.
First, the main lead concerning 9/11 seems to implicate the Saudis, especially the Royal Family and the bin Laden family. The Bush Administration refused to release to the 9/11 Commission as much as ¾ of the national security papers available during the Clinton era, in all probability for the highly sensitive material that they contain. According to some sources in the journalistic community that Emory cites, previous attempts to use planes to launch terrorist attacks were contemplated in the years prior to 9/11 by Al-Qaeda, involving in some cases the Eiffel Tower, the city of Tel-Aviv in Israel, various other targets…and the World Trade Center. Several intelligence agencies throughout the world, such as Egyptian, Italian and Israeli intelligence, and in the U.S., tried to warn the Administration of an imminent attack that would take place around the Millenium, but their warnings were ignored. U.S. dependency on Saudi oil and the considerable reinvestment that the Saudis effectuate in the U.S. played a key role in the cover up of this intelligence. Continuer la lecture
A repost from anti-fascist researcher Dave Emory assesses the present political, economical and financial situation of the United States with great accuracy, as early as 2003. We must admit that he was right on target when recording that show. Here are the basic facts. The Irak war reveals itself to have been a deliberate scheme by the Bush Admistration to increase spending of the federal government in a way that would send it on a vertical spiral of deficits and debt. Accompanied by tax cuts to benefit the wealthy that inevitably decrease the state budget, these two measures or decisions look rather like sabotage attempts to destroy the U.S. economy, either for bringing a totalitarian regime or for Balkanizing them. People belonging to mainstream academia and media, such as Paul Krugman, have made similar analyses. The tax cuts implemented by the Bush Administration are so deep that it is impossible to maintain them without cutting U.S. spending, where the money is, i.e. in social programs or military budget. A report commissioned by the Treasury Department estimated that the U.S. face a chronic budget accumulated deficits of some 44 trillion dollars, if tax rates and spending budget remain the same. To close the gap, a 66% accross the board tax increase would be necessary. The show reminds us of a striking similarity that exists between the behavior of the French elite before WWII and the one of the American elite these days. If the French elite was acting in preparation for a takeover by Germany in defense against Communism, the behavior of the present-day power elite in the U.S. is suggesting that a similar process is under way. The broadcast also deals with other related elements of the puzzle, such as the role played by tax havens like Liechtenstein, Nassau, Panama and Switzerland. It has to be noted that Saddam Hussein siphoned off millions of dollars from oil corporations as bribes into offshore accounts. Hussein used this bribe money to finance weapons deals during embargo periods. Continuer la lecture
