A Long Tradition: London-Wall Street Sponsorship of Nazis
[Print version of this article]
May 20—There is a reason why the usually plodding and tone-deaf Biden Administration moved with such speed to on May 18 “pause” the installation of the absurdly named “Disinformation Governance Board” (DGB) as a censorship agency run by the Department of Homeland Security—and it was not pulled back due to the widespread ridicule aimed at the White House’s choice for director, Nina Jankowicz. The point of setting up this board was to use censorship to protect a dirty secret, and it was endangered by the clumsiness of the board’s roll-out on April 27.
That secret is the century-long deployment by the City of London- and Wall Street-run security, intelligence, and diplomatic networks of a “Nazi International” to run dirty operations in service of their geopolitical goals. Chief among these goals today is to use Ukraine, and the Nazis in the Ukrainian security and defense agencies, as a battering ram to inflict maximum damage on Russia, combined with sanctions and economic warfare to “bleed Russia dry,” according to prominent intelligence analyst Scott Ritter. Included in this operation is the intent to break up the emerging Eurasian economic and military alliance between Russia and China, and to prevent its extension into Europe, especially Germany.
Jankowicz’s problem for these circles of the financial oligarchy is not just that she was accurately characterized by Glenn Greenwald as “a despotic imbecile—a cartoon figure spouting non-stop lies.” The Biden Administration has had numerous such “despotic” figures who routinely traffic in hypocritical lies to defend their policies, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken and White House press spokeswoman Jen Psaki. The deeper problem with Jankowicz is that she is an interface between British and U.S. intelligence circles which use “disinformation” to hide their sponsorship of Nazis. Jankowicz is part of a network of “cluster leaders” deployed under the U.K. Institute for Statecraft and its sub-agency, the Integrity Initiative. Under the slogan “Defending Democracy against Disinformation,” the Integrity Initiative was exposed in 2018-19 by former British ambassador and human rights campaigner Craig Murray as a disinformation spreader, with promotion of Russophobia its main goal.
Among its funders are the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, NATO, the U.S. State Department, and Facebook. Following Murray’s exposure, the Integrity Initiative was shut down, but the Institute for Statecraft continues its work.
Jankowicz and Ukrainian Nazis
Jankowicz was deployed to work with the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry in 2016-17, tasked with “countering Russian disinformation.” She was working for the National Democratic Institute under the umbrella of the National Endowment for Democracy, notorious for its role in launching color revolution/regime-change operations, including as a key U.S. agency backing the Maidan coup in Ukraine in February 2014, which toppled the elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych. At the center of the violent uprising were armed neo-Nazi thugs of the Azov Battalion.
See the May 16, 2014 report, “British Imperial Project in Ukraine: Violent Coup, Fascist Axioms, Neo-Nazis,” by an EIR Research Team; and the February 24, 2017 EIR article, “How Obama and Soros Put Actual Nazis in Power in Ukraine.”
To protect the myth that the overthrow of Yanukovych resulted from the yearning for democracy of the mobs in the Maidan, a “fact-checking” website was set up in Kiev in March 2014 called “StopFake.” One of its founders, Evgeny Fedchenko, was an open supporter of the Nazi militias behind the Maidan violence. StopFake was manned by other supporters of the Azov Battalion. It was exposed in a recent article, “Meet the Head of Biden’s New ‘Disinformation Governing Board,’” in The Nation magazine by journalist Lev Golinkin, who wrote that while being promoted as a “model of how to combat Kremlin lies,” it was “aggressively white-washing two Ukrainian neo-Nazi groups [Aidar and Azov] with a long track record of violence, including war crimes.” StopFake is an official fact-checker partnering with Facebook!
Jankowicz not only collaborated with StopFake while in Ukraine, but accused those who pointed to its relationship with neo-Nazis, of pushing “Russian disinformation.” She described Azov fighters as “patriots” volunteering “to help refugees,” backing up the “weak” Ukrainian military against “Russian aggression” in the Donbas. She covered up their role in the murder of ethnic Russian civilians in the fighting in eastern Ukraine.
History of Sponsorship of Nazis
The move to temporarily shelve the DGB and accept the resignation of Jankowicz as its Executive Director should be seen as “damage control,” to contain the story of the Biden Administration/NATO alliance with Nazis in Ukraine. If there were honest investigative journalists in the mainstream media, it would instead open a window into the historic role of trans-Atlantic financial and corporate cartels in using Nazis for geopolitical purposes.
This goes back to a phenomenon known as “Synarchism,” the hidden background to the nihilism of Nazism in the 20th Century. Investigations done by military and intelligence circles in President Franklin Roosevelt’s administration identified Synarchism as “bankers’ fascism.” These investigations produced extensive files under the title “Synarchist/Nazi-Communist,” which reported on the intent of the trans-Atlantic cartels to impose governments of “technicians” to advance the interests of financial/corporate entities such as Lazard Freres, Royal Dutch Shell, and the Harriman/Rockefeller banks and trusts.
Today, the intent of the “Great Reset” is a new global order of “technocrats,” committed to imposing brutal Schachtian austerity regimes over the heads of national governments, together with the enforcement of a “unipolar” order backed by U.S.-NATO military force.
One report on this operation, filed November 1940 by the U.S. Coordinator of Information, cited the aims of the Synarchists as
to check any new social schemes which might tend to weaken the power of the international financiers and industrialists; to work for the ultimate complete control of all industry by international finance and industry; to protect Anglo-Saxon interests; ... to take advantage of Franco-German collaboration to conclude a series of agreements with German industries, thereby establishing a solid community of interests between French and German industrialists, which will tend to strengthen the hands of international finance and industry; ... to effect a fusion with Anglo-Saxon industry after the war.
As part of this plan, “left” and “right” street thugs were deployed, beginning in the late 1920s, to unleash maximum chaos and lead to calls for emergency dictatorial powers to control them, as well as to provide forces for assassinations and wetworks. For a detailed report on Synarchism, see the May 30, 2003 EIR article, “Synarchism: The Fascist Roots of the Wolfowitz Cabal.”
The Dulles Brothers and the Nazis
A leading figure in the Synarchist movement was Allen Dulles, who with his brother John Foster, coordinated operations from the end of World War I until the early 1960s. Both were lawyers for Wall Street powerhouse Sullivan & Cromwell, and worked between the two world wars promoting the interests of London-Wall Street cartels, including incorporating German firms in those cartels. Prominent in this regard was the Union Banking Corporation of New York, which laundered funds through German partners to fund Hitler’s ascension to power. Top officials of this bank were Prescott Bush, father of former President George H.W. Bush; and Roland Harriman, brother of W. Averell Harriman. The bank was seized by the Roosevelt Administration in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act.
By that time, Dulles had moved on, to run the Bern, Switzerland station of the Office of Strategic Services. From there, he made contact with prominent Nazis, who were recruited by him to work with the CIA after the war, the infamous “rat lines.” These included Hitler’s eastern intelligence chief Reinhard Gehlen, who became the post-war head of the West German intelligence agency BND, with Dulles’ sponsorship; and Ukrainian Nazis Mykola Lebed and Stepan Bandera, leaders of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), who allied during the war with the Nazi SS through their role in the Galician SS. Both Lebed and Bandera were involved in the torture and execution of Jews and non-Ukrainians during the war, including the launching of pogroms which killed nearly 100,000 Jews and ethnic Poles.
Dulles facilitated their escape after the war, and deployed them, along with the Gehlen operation, in anti-Soviet operations during the Cold War. When resistance to the Gehlen network’s role surfaced from the Chief of Army Intelligence, Gen. Arthur Trudeau, Dulles intervened and had him transferred out of military intelligence. Dulles was protecting the operations of a large network of former Nazi youth, estimated in 1952 to include 2,000 members deployed under Gehlen.
Today’s Ukrainian fascists of Azov, Aidar, the Right Sector, etc., who deploy at the forefront of the Ukrainian security forces, are the proud heirs of Bandera. In their regular torchlight parades through Kiev and Lviv, they march behind banners with portraits of the OUN leader, and wear the “Wolfsangel” and “Sonnenrad” (Black Sun) insignias of Nazi’s SS killer units during World War II. One of their leaders, Andrey Biletsky, proclaimed his mission to be to “lead the White Races of the world in a final crusade for their survival ... against the Semite-led Untermenschen”—a term used by Hitler’s Nazis and now applied by the Ukrainian Nazis to ethnic Russians.
This is the legacy that “cluster leader” Nina Jankowicz was chosen to protect!
A probable additional cause for the Biden Administration’s panicked temporary shut-down of the DGB is the inconvenience of the exposure that the perpetrator of the mass shooting last week in Buffalo, New York displayed the Azov Nazi Black Sun (Sonnenrad) insignia. So had the mass killer in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2019. While Biden and his supporters decry “right-wing hate speech”—which they say must be countered by censorship—and the ease with which mentally unstable people can obtain weapons, his administration is backing “right-wing” Nazis in Ukraine, and the Congress voted to supply them with an additional $40 billion in weapons and logistical and intelligence support.
