Who is Profiting from the Rise of Fascism?

On October 21, 2016 a typical Estonian school witnessed an opening ceremony of the bronze bust of Harald Nugiseks. He was an SS-Oberscharführer (Sergeant) in World War II, who served voluntarily in the 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the Waffen SS. According to the director of this education institution, the memory of Harald Nugiseks will lead to the increase in feelings of patriotism among students and must increase their willingness to protect their country in case of external aggression.

So who is this Nugiseks? – During the Second World War, he was awarded with the second highest military award in the Third Reich, the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross. Hitler did only grant this award to a total of 43 foreigners that were fighting on the side of Nazi Germany, which implies that he did something “extraordinary” from the point of view of the Third Reich. In 2008, Harald Nugiseks received a medal “from the grateful Estonian people.” This move was initiated by two local “patriotic” organizations – Club of Friends of the Estonian legionaries and Vaba-Sõltumatu Kolonn Nr.1 (The first independent column).

In July 2016 a member of the Latvian Seimas that represents the Latvian National Association, Aleksadrs Kirsteins made a proposal to the Mayor of Riga to erect a monument to Nazi soldiers, as he stated on his Twitter. Moreover, one of the most striking manifestations of the movement for the glorification of the Nazi forces of the Second World War is the traditional procession of veterans of the Latvian Waffen SS members and their supporters. Ever since 1994, every year on March 16 the center of Riga is being swarmed by former soldiers of the Waffen SS and their fans. But if in the mid-1990s those marches were mostly visited by old men, with each year one would spot an ever increasing number of young people.

The situation is being aggravated by European officials that are misleading people into believing that the Nazis were not as inhuman as they are being “presented” today. For example, a British disgraced academic and self-confessed fascist David Irving is reportedly heading tourist groups to sites in Poland such as Treblinka, and in Latvia, where Jews were exterminated. Irving has been inventing justifications to the crimes comitted by the Nazis in the WWII for a long while now. But what is striking is that Polish and Latvian authorities are completely fine with this sort of “tourism”, since after all such events are in line with the policies pursued by the authorities of those countries.

Why, they are not alone these daNAZI Ukrainian soldiersys since we’ve been witnessing the glorification of fascism in Ukraine along with the attempts to honor such “heroes” as Stepan Bandera and Roman Shuhovich that have been known to the world as barbaric war criminals to this day. It seems that that the ticket to the European Union stinks of fascism. This ticket was used by the Baltic states, and tomorrow Kiev will do the same thing by obtaining the EU membership with an extensive amount of support provided by Washington.

As it has been reported by the German Der Spiegel, a group of Belgian doctors who are preoccupied with euthanasia, has visited a Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in order to comprehend how people may “die with dignity”. And this is hardly a joke, even though it’s hard to stomach the unprecedented level of cynicism demonstrated by the so-called “civilized world.”

So, does Europe tacitly approve fascism? And what could possibly happen to the sensible and tolerant Europeans after the Nuremberg Tribunal? But the most imporant question by far – who benefits from all this?

It is believed that the allied victory in World War II has put an end to fascism, but it hasn’t. Certain political forces overseas still perceive fascism and as a profitable venture, as they did before the Second World War.

At this point it’s clear that the roots of the most destructive war in human history should be sought in the US. The US economy that stumbled over the Great Depression was in dire need of one more war to revive the US economy, while Europe still struggled to rebuild its economy. When the war broke out, people started transferring their savings to the US. Thus, in October 1939 the US Federal Reserve was holding the gold equivalent of 17 million dollars, by February 1940, this amount increased up to a billion – in just four months!

It should also be noted that American corporations obtained great profits from financing the Third Reich, only to start supplying weapons and munitions to its anti-Hitler allies later on. When the war ended, the United States was “kind enough” to provide the war-torn European with loans and American goods.

The financial profits obtained by the US economy during the WWII was immediately converted into political influence. In 1947, the American Secretary of State George C. Marshall proposed the so-called Marshall Plan. It went into effect in 1948 and subjected 17 European countries to Washington’s rule, putting them under the direct financial and economic control of the United States.

Thus, the United States emerged after World War II as the richest country in the world, after having plundered, robbed and enslaved the better part of the world. It is also necessary to understand that America’s financial interests played a pivotal part in the preparation and fueling of the First World War. That’s how Washington has established its financial control over the planet.

Today, the US economy has stumbled yet again, with Washington’s national debt reaching the unbelievable sum of 19.5 trillion (or 108% of GDP). And it’s hardly a secret at this point that war is the best remedy for all of these problems.

So is it any wonder that war has become the trump card of the White House in recent years, which is actively being played in the Middle East, Asia, Africa and other regions.

As for Europe, it is being plunged in the tide of fascism once again, with Washington hoping that it can spark a civil conflict that would transform the Old Continent in an arena for a new Major War. That is why we are witnessing the glorification of fascism in the Baltic States, and Ukraine, which has a “special role” assigned to it in the future conflict.

The Real Reasons Why FBI Director James Comey Reopened the Hillary Email Investigation
This last Friday it became public record that FBI Director James Comey reopened the Hillary Clinton email server investigation after repeatedly testifying before Congress and the world up to last July that he’d closed the case, after in his words not finding sufficient evidence of “any criminal wrongdoing” to indict her in spite of her four years as Secretary of State egregiously breaching our national security:’  -committing obstruction of justice and willful tampering with evidence, -deleting 30,000 emails after receiving a court subpoena constituting destruction of evidence, -not to mention repeatedly engaging in perjury before Congress and the FBI. But obviously a federal investigation still in process in late June never stopped Bill Clinton’s illegal ...

American Pravda: How the CIA Invented “Conspiracy Theories”
A year or two ago, I saw the much-touted science fiction film Interstellar, and although the plot wasn’t any good, one early scene was quite amusing. For various reasons, the American government of the future claimed that our Moon Landings of the late 1960s had been faked, a trick aimed at winning the Cold War by bankrupting Russia into fruitless space efforts of its own. This inversion of historical reality was accepted as true by nearly everyone, and those few people who claimed that Neil Armstrong had indeed set foot on the Moon were universally ridiculed as “crazy conspiracy theorists.” ...

Albanian Drug Gangsters Taunt UK by Flaunting Wealth
Members of a notorious Albanian-run cocaine smuggling gang in London have outraged the UK mass media by flaunting their illegally obtained wealth on Instagram. The Daily Mail on Monday accused the Hellbanianz group of “brazenly flaunting their gangster lifestyle” by posting pictures of themselves draped over luxury cars, smoking drugs, sporting Gucci outfits and fielding a kind of cake made up of rolled-up 50 pound notes. A similar note of outrage was struck by the Sun and the Daily Mirror. One picture shows a gang member holding a golden “game-of-thrones” style knuckleduster, encrusted with gems and formed in the shape of the letters ...

What We Still haven’t Learned from the Vietnam War
Fifty years ago today, in 1967, nearly 100,000 Americans marched on Washington, DC, to protest the Vietnam War. In those days there was a mandatory draft in place, and the risk was very real that a young man just out of high school could quickly wind up 13,000 miles away, fighting an unseen enemy in jungles that didn’t need tanks or B-52 bombers to inflict fear. Worse yet was the possibility of going MIA or coming home in a body bag — just another expendable statistic in the great fight against communism. But even many of those who made it ...

Terrorist al-Nusra Front is blamed for massacre and abduction of Syrian civilians.
President Obama’s final foreign policy speech at MacDill air force base in Tampa, betrayed its purpose through the venue.  The Tampa, Florida, base is home to Special Operations Command and Central Command — Special Operations playing an ever increasing role in counter terrorism. The gist of the speech seemed to assert that the US is and should stay true to its values when fighting terrorism.  An assertion when at the same time Congressman Ted Lieu, a California Democrat, has written a letter to Secretary John Kerry warning him the US could be charged with war crimes in aiding Saudi Arabia’s bombing ...

U.S. Bombs Dropped in 2016
How incredible is this... The United States is technically not at war with any country right now but dropped more than 26,000 bombs in just 2016 and this under an "anti-war" President. We have an entire generation of Americans who have lived only under a system of "perpetual war". The time is long overdue to redefine these issues.

A Totalitarian Europe Now on Our Doorstep
Quietly, without most people noticing, the European Commission is moving ahead with a strategy that will arguably make the EU into the first fully operational model of a centralised ‘one state’ supranational authority: ‘A New World Order’; the long standing neoconservative ambition which lies at the heart of global secret society agendas and US geopolitical hegemony. The key ingredient of this strategy is the establishment of an ‘EU Treasury’ which, according to Donald Tusk, President of the EU Council, will come into effect in June 2018, under the official title: European Monetary Fund. This will result in the single point control ...

“Beating the Drums of War”: How Obama and Clinton are Endangering All of Us
I am a lifelong FDR (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) Democrat and therefore am anything other than prejudiced against the Democratic Party. But, that Party died when Bill Clinton became President and undid FDR’s regulations on the megabanks and FDR’s AFDC income program for children in poor families, and when Clinton replaced that with restoration of Wall Street’s control over America (like before FDR, only a more convoluted form of it). However, the way in which both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton endanger all people’s lives and property and health and welfare, has to do with something else, something that’s even more ...

Exporting Jihad: Bosnia and Kosovo
Bosnia and Kosovo are two of the biggest exporters of jihadists joining the Islamic State (ISIS) and al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria) from the Balkans. As The Cipher Brief reported last month, legacies of the Communist era and the wars of the 1990s – presence of foreign fighters, economic and physical destruction, a lack of funding to rebuild, and the near eradication of moderate Islamic institutions – paved the way for Islamic extremist groups to establish a foothold in both countries. Now, ISIS recruiters are targeting Bosnia and Kosovo, and many Bosnians and Kosovars have left to fight in Syria and ...

Did the Cold War Ever Really End?
The official end of the Cold War era in 1989 brought during the first coming years a kind of international optimism that the idea of the „end of history“ really could be realized as it was a belief in no reason for the geopolitical struggles between the most powerful states. The New World Order, spoken out firstly by M. Gorbachev in his address to the UN on December 7th, 1988 was originally seen as the order of equal partnership in the world politics reflecting „radically different international circumstances after the Cold War“.[1] Unfortunately, the Cold War era finished without the „end ...

The International Criminal Court (ICC) Does Not Prosecute War Criminals
The International Criminal Court (ICC) was established to prosecute culpable individuals for crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. Its mandate calls for “end(ing) impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes of concern.” US and Israeli officials are guilty of the highest of high crimes. Yet none of their officials ever were held accountable – not by their own courts or the ICC. The international body operates on the principle of complementarity. It can only prosecute when governments won’t or can’t – even against officials of non ICC-member countries like America and Israel. On December 31, 2000, Bill Clinton signed the Rome Statute ...

NATO — Private Club оf War Criminals
What has happened is that NATO provides cover for these transgressions of the United States government’s policy. In other words, it absolutely legitimizes what effectively is NATO aggression. Moreover, what one needs to bear in mind and what one needs to be mindful about is the fact that in Western Europe you no longer have rulers with the independence of Charles de Gaulle. It seems that Washington, and we can use Washington, America and NATO interchangeably because NATO is dominated by the United States. It is a command structure, which ultimately is based on American military power and American military precedence.  ...

Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton: Who’s the Fascist?
The U.S. public loves fascists; they elect them, constantly. Donald Trump, who “says he would raise the minimum wage and stop the endless efforts at regime change,” is called a fascist by some.  But Hillary Clinton “is happy to bomb Libya or Syria or any other country,” and played a major role in mass Black incarceration. Barack Obama is the war-maker and deporter-in-chief. “All of the major party candidates fit the F word description in some way.” “No one comes into office with any intention of undoing America’s leadership as the world’s worst jailer.” Donald Trump is the ill spoken, boorish, graceless ...

There is one thing that Israel fears more than anything else in Syria. The loss of its ability to fly its F-16’s with impunity and hit whatever targets it wants claiming defensive measures to stop Iran, their existential enemy. Israel finally admitted to carrying out over 200 such missions over the past 18 months, only a few of which ever made any kind of international media, recently. And with the sneak attack on Latakia which involved using a Russian IL-20 ELINT war plane as radar cover Israel has now not only raised the stakes to an unacceptable level, it has also ensured ...

Pseudo-Democracy, Reparations, and Actual Democracy
It is hardly a coincidence that the Declaration of Independence, Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations, and Johann Friedrich Blumenbach’s On the Natural Variety of Mankind were all published within a year of one another, for each supports a necessary aspect of a larger, integrated project. Not only was the rationale for seizing political power (provided by the Declaration) supported by Smith’s popular text (which justified rule by the wealthy business class). Because this wealth and power was contingent on slavery, and territories seized by conquest, Blumenbach’s theory that the “Caucasian race” (a designation he coined, by the way) was the supreme race was ...

Syria: It’s Not a Civil War and it Never Was
The weapons are foreign, the fighters are foreign, the agenda is foreign. As Syrian forces fight to wrest control of their country back and restore order within their borders, the myth of the “Syrian civil war” continues on. Undoubtedly there are Syrians who oppose the Syrian government and even Syrians who have taken up arms against the government and in turn, against the Syrian people, but from the beginning (in fact before the beginning) this war has been driven from abroad. Calling it a “civil war” is a misnomer as much as calling those taking up arms “opposition.” It is not ...
