MONDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 27


12 -1 Pema Chodron, "Getting Unstuck"
'Breaking Your Habitual Patterns & Encountering Naked Reality'


Have you ever had an itch and not scratched it? In the Buddhist tradition, this points to a vast paradox: that by refraining from our urge to scratch, great peace and happiness is available.
On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chödrön introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality: a pre-emotional feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort often with harmful habits.
With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at both the itch and the scratch, which Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa. On this full-length recording, Pema Chödrön, bestselling author and beloved American Buddhist nun, shows us how to recognize shenpa, catch it as it appears, and develop a playful, lively curiosity toward it. Join Pema Chödrön to discover more about:

Critical mind-how to recognize this fundamental shenpa, and approach yourself and others with a sense of humor and loving-kindness
Ways to unravel the patterns of self-denigration, and develop the fundamental maitri-loving-kindness-toward yourself
How to cultivate acceptance of your irritability, insecurities, and other simply human traits
Recognition, Refrain, Relaxing, and Resolve: the four R's of working with shenpa, and more

An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger, teaches Pema Chödrön. We reinforce our cravings, habits, and addictions by giving in to them repeatedly. On Getting Unstuck, Chödrön guides us through this sticky feeling, exploring the moments when we get hooked, and offers us tools for learning to stay with our uneasiness, soften our hearts toward ourselves and others, and live a more peaceful life in the fullness of the present moment.
Reviews
"Chödrön demonstrates how effective the Buddhist point of view can be in bringing order into disordered lives." -Publishers Weekly

Part 1 of 6: 'Learning to Stay'
The challenge of being present. Stop scratching. Learning to stay. Ego: the root of the problem. Exploring the itch. The open awareness of your mind. Listening meditation practice. The doorway to liberation.



Part 2 of 6: 'The Habit of Distraction'
Recognizing patterns of habituation. Shenpa: how we get hooked. Catching your shenpa in action, Addictions and our fundamental uneasiness. Engaging shenpa in meditation. Recognizing, refraining, relaxing, and resolving.

2-3 From the Vault "The Attica Prison Rebellion"

This week on From the Vault, we look at the bloodiest prison confrontation in American history. September 9th, 1971 marked the beginning of the Attica Prison Rebellion. Nearly 1500 prisoners revolted and held 40 guards hostage, while the world awaited the reason for this uprising.

Prisoner L.D. Barkley would break the silence, by reading from a manifesto the inmates had created, which issued demands for improvements on inhumane living conditions as well as establishing educational and training opportunities. Four days of negotiations ended and New York State Police and National Guard troops assaulted the rebel prison block. When the smoke cleared the death toll stood at 43 souls, including 10 hostages. Pacifica's coverage of these five chilling days brought into focus a world largely unknown to the American public.

The roots of the Attica crisis can be traced to conditions inside the prison that very few people were aware of, unless they spent time behind Attica's gates or listened to Pacifica Radio's coverage. In this episode, we will feature archival recordings of an exceptionally rare and comprehensive nature: interviews with prisoners leading the revolt, like L.D. Barkley and Donald Noble; comments by New York State Assembly member Arthur Eve, representing the 143rd district of Buffalo; statements by various prison guards held hostage in the uprising; reflections from radical lawyer and civil rights activist William Kunstler; and the sharp wit of comedian Richard Pryor (edited for language, of course!). These Attica Prison rebellion recordings from the Pacifica Radio Archives provide a unique look back at a seminal event in United States history largely ignored by the conventional media in 1971, wholly reported and explored by Pacifica Radio, and brought back to life on this episode of From the Vault.

3-3:30 The Bioneers - Revolution from the Heart of Nature
Under the SKin We're All Kin: Reading the Minds of Animals"

Calling someone an "animal" means they're less than human - not worthy of respect, rights, or even of life itself. But in truth - and in biological fact - human beings ARE animals. Scientists continue to find that intelligence and what we call "consciousness" appear to saturate all of nature. Clearly it's high time to think differently about just what it means to be an animal. Can we know what it's like to be other-than-human? How can we see into the minds of animals? Visionary naturalist, author and conservationist Carl Safina says that the first step is paying attention and observing. And, he suggests, if we had humility, we'd have everything.

2:15-3:30 Onnesha Roychoudhuri and Jenny Yang "The Marginalized Majority: Claiming Our Power in a Post-Truth America"


Recorded August 4 at Skylight Books in Los Angeles.


Nominated twice for the legendary Pushcart Prize, Onnesha Roychoudhuri is a writer and educator, who has written for Rolling Stone, n+1, Virginia Quarterly Review, The Boston Review, The Nation, Salon, Mother Jones, and many more. For the majority of her career, Roychoudhuri upheld the idea that true journalistic integrity came from an unfaltering objectivity, with the journalist's own perspective resolutely outside of the action. But after Trump's win it became clear that a reporter's work was needed on the streets, too. 'The Marginalized Majority' is her reckoning with this new way of viewing journalism and activism, together.

Jenny Yang is a former labor organizer turned standup comedian, writer and actor. She produces the Disoriented Comedy tour and The Comedy Comedy Festival. In 2016, President Obama honored her as a White House Champion of Change for her leadership in Asian American and Pacific Islander Art and Storytelling.



"The Marginalized Majority' is a must-read for anyone who cares about progressive politics. Onnesha Roychoudhuri weaves the personal and the political together expertly; she's written a compelling and brilliant book that will help light the way forward."-Jessica Valenti, author of Sex Object: A Memoir

"We have the numbers, strength, and vision to beat back the resurgent right and set a new people's agenda. But it won't happen until we start telling new stories about change, shedding the tired ones that have silenced and demoralized us. This book is a daring intervention to get us back in the game-- and a witty, delightfully personal meditation on collective power."-Naomi Klein, author of 'No Is Not Enough' and 'This Changes Everything'

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 29


12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record 1015 - Update on Hindutva Fascism"

In numerous programs, we have highlighted the Nazi tract Serpent's Walk, which deals, in part, with the rehabilitation of the Third Reich's reputation and the transformation of Hitler into a hero.
In FTR #'s 988 and 989, 990, 991, and 992, we detailed the Hindutva fascism of Narendra Modi, his BJP Party and supportive elements, tracing the evolution of Hindutva fascism through the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi to the present time.
Modi's BJP is a political cat's paw for the RSS, the Hindutva fascist organization that murdered Gandhi.
It appears that a Serpent's Walk scenario is indeed unfolding in India.
As the saying goes, you can't judge a book by its cover. There are exceptions: When a children's book is entitled "Great Leaders" and has a picture of Adolf Hitler standing next to Barack Obama, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson Mandela, that's a book cover that suggests this book should be skipped...

2-3 Chris Hedges "Extraction Industries & Sexploitation
(2015)


The scourge of male violence against women will not end if we dismantle the forces of global capitalism. The scourge of male violence exists independently of capitalism, empire and colonialism. It is a separate evil. The fight to end male violence against women, part of a global struggle by women, must take primacy in our own struggle. Women and girls, especially those who are poor and of color, cannot take part in a liberation movement until they are liberated. They cannot offer to us their wisdom, their leadership and their passion until they are freed from physical coercion and violent domination. This is why the fight to end male violence across the globe is not only fundamental to our movement but will define its success or failure. We cannot stand up for some of the oppressed and ignore others who are oppressed. None of us is free until all of us are free.
Chris Hedges is an award-winning journalist who has covered wars in the Balkans, the Middle East and Central America. He writes a weekly column for Truthdig.com and is a senior fellow at The Nation Institute. He is the author of many books including 'Empire of Illusion, 'Death of the Liberal Class, 'The World As It Is,' 'Wages of Rebellion,' and currently 'America: The Farewell Tour."

"Vice to Vertue: From Carbon Crisis to Carbon Farming"

How does a virtue become a vice? How does a basic building block of life turn into a threat to life? And how do you turn that vice back into a virtue? In this half-hour we visit with two unlikely pathfinders who are helping to revolutionize farming. Calla Rose Ostrander and John Wick of the Marin Carbon Project are taking carbon out of the atmosphere and putting it back where it belongs: in the soil. In so doing, they're also revitalizing the soil, conserving water, and building agricultural resilience. Scaling up these revolutionary regenerative methods can offset the climate destabilization, which that threatens to confound agriculture and endanger our food supply.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 22

12-1 Dave Emory,"For the Record #1014-Update on Fascism in Ukraine"


As indicated by the title, this broadcast updates and fleshes out a long path of inquiry into the development of fascism in Ukraine, implemented by the OUN/B successor organizations that were empowered by the Maidan Coup of 2014.
In past commentary, we have noted the profound Ukrainian and Gehlen-derived links to the supposed "Russian" hacks leading up to, and during, the 2016 U.S. election campaign.
These high-profile "hacks" have all the earmarks of a "cyber-false flag" operation, which we compared to the "Painting of Oswald Red" in FTR #'s 925 and 926.
Now, we learn that Victoria Nuland, a key player in the EuroMaidan Coup that placed the OUN/B fascist successor organizations in power in Ukraine was informed of the supposed "Russian" hacks months before senior DNC officials were informed.
There was a period, from around May of 2015 to March of 2016, where Victoria Nuland-again, a key EuroMaiden instigator-knew about these hacks, but the DNC effectively didn't. According to the following article, there's another set of people who were informed about the hacks in late 2015: State Department officials, including Victoria Nuland, were informed about the DNC hacks in December of 2015 and tasked with developing a US response.
" . . . . That conclusion was reinforced Wednesday by another witness, Victoria Nuland, who served as assistant secretary of state for Europe during the Obama administration. She told the panel that she had been briefed as early as December 2015 about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee - long before senior DNC officials were aware of it - and that the intrusion had all the hallmarks of a Russian operation. . . . As she and other State Department officials became 'more alarmed' about what the Russians were up to in the spring of 2016, they were authorized by then Secretary of State John Kerry to develop proposals for ways to deter the Russians. . . . "
This raises the question of whether the "response" she developed may have involved engaging and mobilizing the OUN/B and Gehlen-derived elements we looked at in FTR #'s 943 and 981.
Next, we note that Ukraine's embrace of neo-Nazi vigilantism continued, with the fourth attack on a Roma camp in six weeks, covered live on Facebook. The attack was launched by members of the new formed Azov National Druzhyna militia, an offshoot of the Azov Battalion formed in January to patrol the streets. Ukrainian police just stood around approvingly watching it happen.
We have noted that the neo-Nazi Azov Battalion runs a youth camp. Ukraine's Youth and Sports Ministry published a video last week showing its officials unanimously voting to fund variously organizations for "national-patriotic education projects". Among the recipients of those funds: Svoboda and C14.
Specifically, the money went to three far right organizations founded by members of C14 and Svoboda. The Educational Assembly, founded by C14 head Yevhen Karas; C14 Sich, founded by Volodymyr Karas, who shares the same patronymic, surname, and address as the C14 head; and Holosiyiv Hideout, whose founders include several members of Svoboda.
The Svoboda group will by about $29,200 for four festival. That alone is profoundly disturbing. But even more disturbing is what The two C14 groups got funds for: The C14 'Educational Assembly' and C14 Sich's children's summer camp will received about $16,900 for three children's events.
There has been yet another attack on a Roma camp in Ukraine, this time on the outskirts Lviv. A 24 year old was stabbed to death and four others were injured, including a 10 year old boy. Seven suspects ages 16 and 17 have been arrested and a 20 year old is accused of planning the attack.
Might these youth be affiliated with, or motivated by, any of the fascist youth groups funded by the Ukrainian government?
In any event, it's clear that it's 'open season' on Roma in Ukraine.
Next, we look at the faked assassination of Arkady Babchenko. The alleged hitman supposedly hired by the Russians was a member of Pravy Sektor and a veteran of the combat in the civil war in Ukraine's East. Another player in the alleged "Russian" plot was an executive with a German-Ukrainian arms manufacturer that manufactured sights for sniper rifles.
Another question in the Babchenko affair concerns the alleged planned purchase of 300 AK-47s and large quantities of explosives. These munitions were supposedly part of a "Russian" terror campaign, linked to the alleged "Russian" plot against the life of Babchenko and the other journalists.
Recall that, back In March, it was learned that far right Ukrainian war hero, Nadia Savchenko, was alleged by Ukrainian authorities a plotting a devastating terror plot on Ukraine's parliament? That was 2-3 months, right around the time the SBU allegedly got its intelligence about about this new alleged Moscow-directed assassination/terror plot. Is this the Savchenko terror plot misrepresented under the guise of a Russian terror plot?
One of the signature features of the Babchenko affair is the list of 47 names of journalists allegedly targeted by Russia was unofficially leaked yesterday. A number of Ukrainian journalists, including those on the list, question its credibility. They note the list is filled with the names of people critical of the Ukrainian authorities.
Anatoliy Matios, Ukraine's chief military prosecutor, gave an extensive interview where he said that Jews are behind all wars and want to "drown ethnic Slavs in blood." He would theoretically be in charge of prosecutor abuses by the Ukrainian military units fighting in the East - like the neo-Nazi 'volunteer battalions.'
In addition, recall the cryptic statement Matios made back in 2016 about the identity of the people involved with the 2014 sniper attacks: "When public learns who is involved in this, people will be very surprised." In FTR #'s 982, 993 and 1004, we examined evidence that Ukrainian fascists may well have executed those sniper attacks. It is not reassuring to learn that the chief military prosecutor who is involved in that investigation is a neo-Nazi.
Before approaching the statements of Mayor Moskal (of the Ukrainian village of Skole), we note that a diplomat working in Ukraine's Hamburg (Germany) consulate expressed openly fascist statements.
We conclude with a look at some of the fruit borne on the vine of Ukrainian revisionist history.
The mayor of Skole cited the work of Volodomyr Viatrovych (English translations from the Ukrainian vary) and his "Ukrainian Institute of National Memory" as documentary justification for an anti-Semitic tirade.

2-3 Chris Hedges "Moral Imperatives"
Helena, MT, March 11, 2015

What are individuals to do when faced with a moral imperative? And society at large? Philosophers since ancient times have been wrestling with this question as it involves issues of ethics and conscience. When we see an injustice do we remain passive and silent or do we intervene to try and stop it. Is it our problem or someone else's? Powerful states and institutions like to cloak themselves in morality and virtue. Citizens are propagandized to let the big boys, since they know what's best, handle everything. Do we act on our principles? What are our responsibilities? Racial segregation was an obvious immorality. Why did it take so long for it to be eliminated? Same with voting rights. Today the old poisonous wines are being repackaged in new bottles. Once again we are faced with moral imperatives.
Chris Hedges is an award-winning journalist who has covered wars in the Balkans, the Middle East and Central America. He writes a weekly column for Truthdig.com and is a senior fellow at The Nation Institute. He is the author of many books including /Empire of Illusion,' 'Death of the Liberal Class,' 'The World As It Is,' and 'Wages of Rebellion.'

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 15
(POSSIBLE FUND DRIVE SCHEDULE)

12-1 Dave Emory, "For the Record #1013 - Fascism and the Politics of Immigration"




In The Hitler Legacy, Peter Levenda noted anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia as part of “The Hitler Legacy.”




“. . . Xenophobia is at an all-time high in Europe and increasingly in America. The Internet has provided new and improved means of communication. As the political life of every country becomes more and more polarized between “right” and “left,” the men
of ODESSA can only laugh at our discomfort. . . .”

Fear of “the other” has been a staple of fascist thought and is dominating much of the political discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.




In FTR #838, Levenda discoursed on how immigration from Europe, both Catholic and Jewish, melded with other events in the post-World War I period to mobilize fascist sentiment and activism.




Reacting to the advent of the Soviet Union, abortive Marxist revolutions in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, large scale immigration of Catholics from Ireland and Italy and Jews from Eastern Europe, powerful elements of the U.S. power elite embraced fascism
and eugenics ideology.

With the onset of the Great Depression, the potential threat of Communism was magnified in the eyes of many powerful American industrialists, financiers and corporate lawyers. Germany’s success in putting down the Marxist revolutions within its own borders,
as well as the business relationships between corporate Germany and its cartel partners in the U.S. business community inclined many influential American reactionaries to support fascism.




By the same token, these same elements came to despise Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his “Jew Deal,” as it was called by his enemies. American Jews were seen as hiring Jewish immigrants and thus denying “real Americans” jobs and economic well-being.




Attacking Roosevelt as a Jew and a Communist, American fascists embraced a cognitive and rhetorical position not unlike the view of Barack Obama as a “Kenyan Muslim,” and, consequently, a “traitor.”




Some key points in Peter’s analysis are explored a section of the book titled the “Origins of 21st Century Conflict.” ...







In The Hitler Legacy, Peter noted anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia as part of “The Hitler Legacy.”




Next, we turn to a more recent development.

Melania Trump garnered considerable media attention when she visited a detention center for immigrants, including children, wearing a jacket that said “I Really Don’t Care. Do U?”




Tasteless on its surface, the statement assumes added significance when we factor in the fact that “I don’t care” (“Me Ne Frego” in Italian) was an important fascist slogan.




Furthermore, the Zara company that made Melania’s jacket has a history of marketing garments with fascist/racist overtones. It marketed a shirt that mimicked a concentration camp inmate’s garb and a swastika-inlaid handbag. It also marketed a Pepe The Frog
skirt.




Recent comments by Trump disparaging Haiti as a “shithole” country and pining for immigration from Norway instead warrant a fresh look at the Crusade For Freedom.




During Trump’s brief tenure as President, the media have consistently lamented his actions as idiosyncrasies. Trump’s policies are not his alone, but follow in a linear path, along which the GOP has traveled for decades.

In this post, we review the Crusade For Freedom–the covert operation that brought Third Reich alumni into the country and also supported their guerrilla warfare in Eastern Europe, conducted up until the early 1950’s. Conceived by Allen Dulles, overseen by
Richard Nixon, publicly represented by Ronald Reagan and realized in considerable measure by William Casey, the CFF ultimately evolved into a Nazi wing of the GOP.




“. . . . Vice President Nixon’s secret political war of Nazis against Jews in American politics was never investigated at the time. The foreign language-speaking Croatians and other Fascist émigré groups had a ready-made network for contacting and mobilizing
the Eastern European ethnic bloc. There is a very high correlation between CIA domestic subsidies to Fascist ‘freedom fighters’ during the 1950’s and the leadership of the Republican Party’s ethnic campaign groups. The motive for the under-the-table financing
was clear: Nixon used Nazis to offset the Jewish vote for the Democrats. . . .




. . . . In 1952, Nixon had formed an Ethnic Division within the Republican National Committee. Displaced fascists, hoping to be returned to power by an Eisenhower-Nixon ‘liberation’ policy signed on with the committee. In 1953, when Republicans were in office,
the immigration laws were changed to admit Nazis, even members of the SS. They flooded into the country. Nixon himself oversaw the new immigration program. . . .”

1-2 The Ralph Nader Radio Hour
Initially heard on KPFK Mondays 2 pm

2-3 From the Vault: #581: "Fiftieth Anniversary of 1968





This week on From the Vault, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of 1968, a year in which a radical wave crashed across the globe, changing the world and its people politically, socially, and culturally. Wars, marches, elections, assassinations,
human rights, civil rights, women’s rights, the explosion of consciousness and creativity – no event took place in isolation; the Vietnam War ducked and wove through 1968, depositing destruction and igniting defiance against injustice; students worldwide took
to the streets to not only speak out against social ills in their own land – but also in support of their international brethren; civil rights campaigners spoke in unity about the need for equal rights and respect; and a new battle – the war of words – is
penned amidst the tide of change brought to artists struggling to comprehend and express the social and political upheaval surrounding them. And Pacifica Radio was there to capture it all. We’ll hear voices from 1968 that include H. Rap Brown, Martin Luther
King, Jr., Muhammad Ali, and Ray Bradbury, among others.




From the Vault is presented as part of the Pacifica Radio Archives Preservation and Access Project, funded in part by an award from the GRAMMY Foundation and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission at the National
Archives and Records Administration, and past grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ford Foundation, and the American Archive funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, along with the generous support of Pacifica Radio Listeners. We
also thank our partners and collaborators at the Pop-Up Archive, Amara, Other Minds Archives, George Blood Audio, and the California Audio Visual Preservation Project.

'Equal Rights Amendment: Time's Up'

Ever since women won the right to vote in 1920, women leaders and their allies have sought to pass an Equal Rights Amendment to drive total equality and justice for women into the U.S. Constitution. It did pass in 1972, but fell three states short of ratification. Today's next wave of the women's movement might finally make the ERA a reality. Why is Constitutional protection so crucial? Join leading advocates Joan Blades (MomsRising co-founder), attorney Kimberle Crenshaw and Jessica Neuwirth (ERA Coalition President) to learn the true story of what's at stake and how life would be different and better for women and men.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AUGUST 8
FUND DRIVE SCHEDULE

12-1 Dave Emory, 'For the Record 1012 - Food for Thought' Part 2

This program supplements and recapitulates both FTR #912 and AFA #39. In turn, several other, overlapping programs should be examined to flesh out one's understanding of the phenomena discussed here, including: FTR #'s 606, 682 and 686, as well as AFA #16.

Central to our analysis is a look at an excerpt from testimony before a House appropriations subcommittee that was drawing up the defense budget for the following year. (The hearings were in 1969.) The testimony discusses the possibility of using genetic engineering to produce a disease that would be "refractory" to the immune system. This is virtually the clinical definition of AIDS. It is worth noting that the project was funded, and just such a disease-AIDS-appeared in just the time frame posited. It is also worth noting that, in the 2002 edition of A Higher Form of Killing, this passage is omitted!!

. . . As long ago as 1962, forty scientists were employed at the U.S. Army biological warfare laboratories on full-time genetics research. 'Many others,' it was said, 'appreciate the implications of genetics for their own work.' The implications were made more specific that genetic engineering could solve one of the major disadvantages of biological warfare, that it is limited to diseases which occur naturally somewhere in the world. 'Within the next 5 to 10 years, it would probably be possible to make a new infective micro-organism which could differ in certain important respects from any known disease-causing organisms. Most important of these is that it might be refractory to the immunological and therapeutic processes upon which we depend to maintain our relative freedom from infectious disease.' The possibility that such a 'super germ' may have been successfully produced in a laboratory somewhere in the world in the years since that assessment was made is one which should not be too readily cast aside. . .

Purebred Northern Europeans possess a hereditary immunity to infection by HIV, a gene (CCR5Delta 32) that conferred immunity to the Black Death, long believed to have been bubonic plague. Bubonic plague was a major focal point of Third Reich biological weapons research, stemming from SS chief Heinrich Himmler's interest in that disease.

Disguised as a cancer research program, Nazi Germany's plague research was presided over by Kurt Blome, the deputy surgeon general of the Third Reich. Blome went to work for the U.S. under Project Paperclip (also known as Operation Paperclip.) We wonder if the Nazi research into bubonic plague and the emergence of an immune-destroying disease to which only pure-bred Northern Europeans-"Aryans"-were immune might have been the outgrowth of Nazi-inspired U.S. biological weapons research stemming from Paperclip?

Another development in that context is noteworthy:

When the U.S. officially "gave up" biological warfare research, Fort Detrick-the military's top bw research facility, was officially turned over to the National Cancer Institute's Viral Cancer Research Project. Featuring veterans of the U.S. biological warfare research program, the NCI's VCP was implemented by Litton Bionetics, a biotechnology subsidiary of Litton Industries, a major defense contractor. The National Cancer Institute's Viral Cancer Research Project was at the epicenter of U.S. research into AIDS. We strongly suspect that this was a recapitulation of the Third Reich's use of "cancer research."

In both FTR #912 and AFA #39, we highlighted Bayer's projected purchase of Monsanto.

We engage in a line of inquiry that is speculative in nature, evaluating the possibility that companies descended from the I.G. Farben German chemical cartel may absorb Monsanto, the firm noted for its development of genetically modified organisms.

Specifically, Bayer and BASF figured in the reported maneuvering for Monsanto. The deal has passed American anti-trust regulators, with BASF purchasing some $9 billion in former Bayer assets to permit the deal to go forward.

Against the background of the remarkable Bormann capital network's effective control of the firms that descended from I.G. Farben, we ruminate about the possibility of genetically engineered binary pathogens being included in the food supply available to much of the world's population.

Available information highlights possible Underground Reich maneuvering to gain control of firms marketing foodstuffs to middle, lower middle and working class people. This speculation, in turn, is set against the background of information strongly suggesting that AIDS was deliberately developed.

In the context of the purchase of food-producing companies, we note J.A.B Holdings and it's associated Reimann family.

They are owned by a secretive group of German billionaires, mostly related to each other. This group owns (outright or majority) a rather shocking number of major American brands, including Peets Coffee, Panera Bread, Jimmy Choo Shoes, Dougwe Eberts Coffee, and Krispy Kreme Donuts! They appear to be making a major move to dominate the U.S., and perhaps global, coffee industry.

They also own part of 3G, the massive Brazilian holding company (with one of the three heads having the last name Lemann, and the other having Hermann as a middle name). (This is a focal point of FTR #912.)

3G owns Inbev (dominant player in the world's liquor industry), Heinz, Kraft, and Burger King, who they quickly moved to Canada and merged with Tim Hortons, a massive Canadian restaurant chain, for tax breaks. They also own the largest logistics/railroad company in South America and its largest retail shopping company. So, between their interests in JAB and 3G, this one family has their tentacles into a ridiculous amount of commerce.

Like many German corporate citizens, they make their headquarters in Luxembourg.

Is this Bormann money "gulping up companies like a giant amoeba?"

Note how secretive the Reimann family and their operation is: " . . . . The lack of involvement is allegedly part of the family policy, which also includes signing a codex on one's 18th birthday pledging to stay out of the public as much as possible, thus making them one of the most private billionaire families. . . ."
