Myth of the 20th Century

In democratic republics such as the United States, power is officially held by elected officials who are supposedly held to account by the electorate. In one of his last speeches, however, US President John F. Kennedy warned the public against shadowy forces who hold power by operating through secretive networks. Shortly thereafter he was assassinated. Allen Dulles, the man who been recently dismissed from the CIA by Kennedy, was a 33rd degree Freemason, and found himself on the Warren Commission overseeing the investigation into the President’s assassination. Secret societies such as the Freemasons, and in particular those based out of the elite Ivy League schools such as Skull and Bones, have had a long history of power in the West, forming a cabal of rulers that no matter the elected party, always seem to have a member at the table.

Built in the depths of the Great Depression, the Hoover Dam rises over 700 feet along the canyon walls of the Colorado River. Originally named the Boulder Dam and officially begun in 1933 after decades of contentious debate over the feasibility of such an ambitious project, the dam opened in 1936 as the largest hydroelectric facility in the world. Responsible for powering cities all throughout the southwestern United States, as well as controlling water for flood mitigation and agricultural use, the engineering and architectural wonder has attracted nearly a million tourists a year and stands as a testament to the capacity of a nation that commits itself to great works that they are possible if the will exists.

A civilization’s state of development is most often readily apparent in its buildings. The capacity for stepping beyond the limits of nature, and forging into the realm of modernity is enshrined in the time capsules that are major works of architecture and infrastructure. When historians and anthropologists trace the path from pre-historic societies to today, they invariably look to the quality and sophistication of their earth, stone, and rock monuments that serve as milestones in their journey to today. What has consistently stood out is the importance of water infrastructure in all great civilizations, from the flooded terraced farming techniques in Chinese rice fields to the Roman aqueducts. Upon examining America, one notices the astonishing amount of decay that has set in to its water management system, from municipal water contamination in Flint to the breaking of sewer lines in Seattle, raising the question if any of this will even be around to examine for future generations once the final proverbial dam breaks.

James LaFond, author, fighter, and anthropologist of all things urban and unseen by the aspirational and increasingly disconnected bourgeois classes of American cities rejoins the crew tonight for a much overdue conversation. Since we last spoke James has traveled and lived in various cities across the country, spent a night on the streets of Manhattan, and even managed to train a few listeners to the podcast on hand to hand combat and mixed martial arts. Always insightful and a pleasure to talk to, James remains one of the most honest and perceptive members of the growing class of people looking up at the decaying mass that is Western civilization and wondering if their time might be better spent maneuvering horizontally rather than vertically.

Representing 2-7% of the Pentagon’s annual budget, and with a projected lifetime cost of over $1 trillion dollars, the Joint Strike Fighter program with its three variations of the F-35 airframe for the US Air Force, Navy, and Marines and over a dozen partner countries is the most expensive weapons system in history. For point of contrast, World War II cost the United States an inflation-adjusted $4 trillion, and was finished in four years, less time than the initial phases of development for the JSF, which has taken over 20 years. Critics of the program are numerous, but when faced with the choice of scrapping the program and potentially having to spend even more money versus attempting to fix what is already existing, the US government has decided to stay the course. Tonight we are joined by a former Lockheed employee and F-35 representative to discuss why the program has run into so many problems, what could have been done better, and how this fits into the overall war fighting capability of the United States and its allies.

Fiction writers today have a plethora of options for getting their stories out, from e-books to streaming video to old fashioned print. But the challenge of capturing people’s imagination, in addition to slipping through the ever-tightening electronic net in an age of censorship has made the task of right-leaning authors all the more difficult in the modern era. Tonight we are joined by our good friend Ethnarch for a special ‘After Dark’ episode to talk about the speculative fiction, sci-fi and fantasy genres and the importance they bear on the broader front of the culture war.

“Spetsnaz has no distinguishing badge or insignia - officially, at any rate. But unofficially the spetsnaz badge is a wolf, or rather a pack of wolves. The wolf is a strong, proud animal which is remarkable for its quite incredible powers of endurance. A wolf can run for hours through deep snow at great speed, and then, when he scents his prey, put on another astonishing burst of speed. Sometimes he will chase his prey for days, reducing it to a state of exhaustion. Exploiting their great capacity for endurance, wolves first exhaust and then attack animals noted for their tremendous strength.. The wolf also has a powerful intellect. He is proud and independent. You can tame and domesticate a squirrel, a fox or even a great elk.. But you cannot tame a wolf. The wolf lives in a pack, a closely knit and well organized fighting unit of frightful predators. The tactics of a wolf pack are the very embodiment of flexibility and daring. The wolves' tactics are an enormous collection of various tricks and combinations, a mixture of cunning and strength, confusing maneuvers and sudden attacks. No other animal in the world could better serve as a symbol of the spetsnaz.” -Victor Suvorov, Spetsnaz - The Inside Story of the Soviet Special Forces

Viktor Suvorov, author of over a dozen books on the inner workings of the Soviet military apparatus, from the Red Army to the Spetsnaz, put forward the earth shattering thesis in his work ‘Icebreaker’ that Hitler’s invasion of the USSR in 1941 was a pre-emptive strike designed to cut the legs out from under a Russian military machine that was gearing up to invade Europe and then the world. Although highly controversial in places like America, where the people are taught from birth about the triumph of WWII and the necessity of the conflict against Nazi Germany, Suvorov’s thesis has garnered much acclaim in many parts of Europe and even Russia, where the proximity to the reign of terror imposed by the Soviet regime still echoes and people look to explain why the allies seemed to unite with one of the most deadly empires the world has ever seen.

In 1932-33, upwards of 10 million people perished in a widespread famine throughout the Ukraine. Estimates vary, but the staggering death toll is undeniable. The causes are debated intensely by various factions, citing reasons ranging from politically motivated intentional starvation to horrible mismanagement of collectivized farming. But what remains notable is the relative lack of awareness of the events, in contrast with the Holocaust. The Holodomor, or “Death by Starvation”, was easily just as great a tragedy as any other, but perhaps more so, because of the silence surrounding it.

The American Dream for most during the Great Depression became more of an exercise in holding on than striving for greatness. But to those recent arrivals in ethnically segregated neighborhoods such as New York and Chicago who sought to get a piece of the action, they found power flowed to those most willing to use their wits, acts of violence, and above all else organization to seize control of lucrative trades in illicit goods such as alcohol in the era of Prohibition. These organized crime operations, led by men such as Meyer Lansky, Lucky Luciano, and Bugsy Siegel became linked by their enforcement operations known as Murder, Inc., and more broadly as The Syndicate.

— Timeline —

1900 – The Bloody Gennas Brothers create the ‘Black Hand’ network, an early criminal syndicate focused on extortion and smuggling rackets in the Chicago area. This network creates much of the impetus for greater Italian criminal consolidation in the following decades.
1919 – Arnold Rothstein, an integral Jewish gangster in the NCS network, helps to fix the World Series game to his own financial benefit, creating a reputation as a cutthroat businessman willing to use whatever means to make money.
1920 – The Volstead Act, otherwise known as ‘Prohibition’, comes into national effect across the United States, banning the sale and distribution of alcohol.
Mid-1920’s – Several criminal networks, predominately Jewish and Italian, begin investing in breweries or cereal plants to expand their beer manufacturing output, launching the ‘Beer Wars’.
1924 – North Side Gang and Al Capone’s Chicago Outfit launch a five-year war with one another, after the assassination of Dion O’Bannion. By the end of the conflict, Capone had fully subsumed Chicago criminal activity and was directly squaring off against Chicago law enforcement, most notably Elliot Ness.
1929 – St. Valentine’s Day Massacre transpires as Capone orders a massive assault on several members of the North Side Gang, including their leader Bugs Morgan. The opposition to Capone crumbled after this attack, although public support for tougher law enforcement efforts against the mob rose immensely.
1929 – Major mob bosses and crime families from several eastern and Midwest cities converge onto Atlantic City to develop ‘The Commission’, or the corporate structure that would form the basis of the National Crime Syndicate.
1930 – By 1930, nearly every major American city west of Texas had developed a powerful NCS-linked structure, from Tampa Bay, Florida to Providence, Rhode Island. Increasingly, criminal activity was becoming a solely Jewish/Italian endeavor.
1935 – Thomas Dewy is appointed special prosecutor for the county of New York, beginning a brief age of rapid NCS deterioration at the hands of law enforcement efforts.

After living through the hard times of the Great Depression and WWII, America in the 1950s was poised for the era of mass consumption, enjoying unprecedented access to inexpensive air travel and leisure opportunities. Chief among these new destinations was Las Vegas, with visits rising from in the tens of thousands per year in the 1930s to over 40 million by 2015. But obscured by the glitz of the Vegas Strip and the glamour of the show girls lay a new hub for an international criminal enterprise whose reach extended into drug trafficking, money laundering and extortion with extensive ties to the US government itself. Despite efforts to break up organized crime by ambitious US senators and prosecutors, the corruption of the Syndicate had penetrated so deeply into the institutional power of the United States that criminality for those at the top became more and more intertwined with those on whom they sought to pin the blame.

1942 – Operation Underworld begins as USG agents and military officials begin working alongside Jewish/Italian mafia bosses to secure American ports against Axis saboteurs.
1946 – 1947 — James Reagan and Bugsy Siegel, two prominent American gangsters, are assassinated, kicking off internal syndicate battles that are only resolved through refocused business activities in Las Vegas.
1947 – Flamingo casino opens in Las Vegas, marking a new era of syndicate-driven casinos in America.
1950 – Kefavuer Hearings begin preliminary hearings and research, with Senator Kefavuer launching a national investigation into the crime syndicate’s domestic activities across 14 states. The testimonies of over 600 are undertaken, including several major mobsters from the era.

1960 – Operation Mongoose, a Eisenhower-era CIA program, begins operations. Not long thereafter, Johny Roselli is approached by Robert Maheu (working for billionaire Howard Hughes and the CIA) to introduce Maheau to members of the Syndicate. Angry over the loss of their business in Cuba, Syndicate power-players such as Giancanno, Traficante, and Lansky.

Following the Civil War, the notion of unity in the United States was more than just wishful thinking. As Reconstruction came to an informal close in the 1870s, the excesses of the Gilded Age with the increasing power of the banking and industrial classes created the political climate for the Progressive Era in the 1890s. Running on the platform of scientific management, temperance, anti-corruption, and reforms in treatment of workers and women, progressive politicians sought to address some of the problems of a rapidly urbanizing society and consolidate the diverse populations and territories of the Union. Industrialists, for their part, began sponsoring universities and academic professions such as economics in an attempt to steer public discourse and pass legislation such as the Sherman Antitrust Act which while on the surface decreased the power of the big business but in effect allowed it to create more indirect cartels with backdoor relationships with the very government which ostensibly sought to control it.

-- Timeline --

1865 - The Civil War ends with a total victory by the Union, resulting in national empowerment of the American Northeast.
1883 - The Pendleton Civil Service Act passed, creating foundations for the modern bureaucratic institutions that exist within the American federal government.
1885 - The American Economics Association (AEA) is established, thereby strengthening the economics profession in the United States. Professional economists begin to network and attain jobs in the American government.
1887 - The Interstate Commerce Act passed, allowing the government to regulate nearly all cross-border economic activity across the USA.
1890 - The Sherman-Antitrust Act passed. American corporate trusts and horizontally-integrated firms are placed under direct political pressure, although the economic fallout is counter-intuitive and strengthens the oligarchic class.
1898 - The Spanish-American War swiftly begins and ends, resulting in codification of the progressive foreign policy in military adventurism.
1901 - The Industrial Commission, established in 1898, delivers a report to POTUS Theodore Roosevelt detailing the interplay between key corporate monopolies/trusts and capital market manipulation.
1906 - Meat and drug inspection becomes the responsibility of the Federal Government.
1913 - The tenor of American society is irrevocably changed with the passing of the 16th and 17th Amendments. These allowed for direct, progressive scales of taxation on personal income, and the direct elections of American Senators by the populaces of the constituent states.
1920 - After decades of Progressive efforts through legal, cultural and academic institutions, women granted the right to vote, Prohibition is ratified by the US Congress. The majority of the American population now lives in urban areas, and the United States has the largest, most complex economy in the world.

“We do not demand for our own people any more than the basic human rights which we would extend to every nation, people and tribe on this planet: the right to preserve their own territory, traditions and ethnic identity. The right to preserve, in other words, the things which, by marking their differences from the mass of humanity, make them human and turn their society from an ant heap into a community.” -Nick Griffin, British National Party chairman from 1999 to 2014. A longtime veteran of local, national, and transnational politics, Mr. Griffin joins us to talk about the challenges facing European people as a whole, and practical implications for nationalists living under the broader sweep of an Anglo-Zionist empire.

Torture - a centuries old practice. When Francis Fukuyama coined the phrase ‘The End of History’, the West in his view strode triumphant, demonstrating the virtues of democratic capitalism and the integration of peoples into a open and liberal framework over that of repressive government regimes of the Communist Bloc. When the War on Terror began in 2001, however, the United States, once the self-appointed ‘leader of the free world’ managed to demonstrate just how heavy handed it was willing to be in order to ‘liberate’ peoples of the world. In US-occupied Iraq, the Abu Ghraib prison served as a focal point for showing the world its willingness to (openly) use methods of psychological and physical humiliation to perpetuate its dominance.

Centered at the heart of Europe, Germany has long played a critical role in modern European political economics. As the Cold War superpowers emerged in the aftermath of the Second World War, partitioning of Germany into East and West left a permanent scar on the people as their own culture and autonomy was subordinated to the ideologies of market-driven capitalism and centrally planned communism. In 1989, when the borders between East and West Germany were opened in a series of surprise events, the psychological and cultural walls that separated the German people were slower to go down than the physical barriers. Today, as a reunified Germany nears its 30th anniversary, Cold War politics seem to remain as the United States heavily influences the direction of NATO and the EU, resisting the development of positive relations between Germany and Russia and a general rise of German leadership in the world.

Jack Welch once said that “a union is only needed when the manager is a horse’s ass.” But what happens when the union is led by one? In the case of the Teamsters, home to over one million transport workers and led by the infamous Jimmy Hoffa until his disappearance in 1975, and now again by his son James Jr. - the injustice that many workers take issue with in management also seems to extend to the union leadership itself. Corruption takes many forms, but accounts of embezzlement, vote tampering, and member intimidation are rife amongst the Teamsters. With union membership down across the board in America over the past 60 years, management’s relative power has increased, and the few workers who do try to get involved are under increasing pressure to remain quiet.

Vietnam’s history as a people and culture dates back thousands of years. But as an independent nation in modern history, the country is very young. After centuries of foreign occupation ranging from the Chinese, Japanese, French, and finally the Americans, in 1975 the Vietnamese nation came into its current form. After going through colonialism, the Second World War, and a conflict that pitted the military backing of two superpowers on its soil and the loss of millions of its citizens, the battle for independence was a long struggle. Today we speak with the granddaughter of a former colonel in the North Vietnamese army about the conflict, why it happened, and its consequences to this day.

The Catholic Church has for centuries stood as a center of power and influence throughout the world, with a reach today of over 1 billion members. In America, the influence of the Church rose most significantly during the late 19th and early 20th centuries with the waves of Catholic European immigrants, much to the chagrin of the WASP and increasingly Jewish elites. They reacted by placing immigration restrictions in 1924, and social engineering programs promoting birth control and breaking up ethnic Catholic neighborhoods. After the tumult of the 1960s, the Church began fighting a rear guard battle that to this day still places it on the defense against progressive culture warriors on issues such as homosexuality and abortion.

War is an expensive business, and historically to the victors went the spoils. When an invading army such as the Japanese during its imperial drive to conquer Asia sought treasure, it did so by looting the vast historical and cultural artifacts of places like China and Burma with their temples full of gold. When the Japanese saw their control over Asia disappearing as WWII neared its end, legend has it that General Yamashita was tasked with hiding billions of dollars worth of gold, diamonds, and precious artifacts in caves scattered about the crumbling Japanese empire. No one knows for certain where the gold was buried, but as the invading American army took control of the former Japanese colonies such as the Philippines, the chances are high that at least some of the treasure found its way into Yankee hands.

Born to a wealthy British family and the son of a preacher, Aleister Crowley, whom his mother called ‘The Beast’, became infamous later in life for his influence on the occult. Although Crowley was not, according to many religious scholars, a Satanist, his exploration of ancient Egyptian deities and adopting Baphomet’s name in a mystical rite in Berlin earned him a reputation for outlandishness and subversion. In addition to his published works on the occult, after his death in 1947 Crowley’s legacy extended into the Counter-Culture of the 1960s and the many secret societies that still dominate today.

We examine unanswered questions - and questions with dubious answers - of the last century. Our goal is to offer a fresh perspective on topics that still affect the course of events today, and in doing so hopefully offer a counterpoint to the mainstream narrative on history so that we can make more informed decisions going forward.
