About the FTN and TRS podcasts:
FTN and the other podcasts on the TRS podcast platform have become required listening for anyone serious about understanding American politics. In a highly professional and competent manner, they analyze topics, including Jewish influence, that others won't.
The FTN podcast in particular is hard news focused, delivering fresh dissident angles on current events that ruthlessly challenge the mainstream narrative.
Some of their episodes are free to the public, while others are behind a $10 monthly paywall, probably the best value in American journalism today because you get access to several excellent shows for that price. We highly recommend Eric Striker's, (editor of the excellent National Justice website), and Mike Enoch's 'Strike and Mike' (1X per week) which are also more hard news focused. The Daily Shoah with Mike Enoch, Jesse Dunstan, and Alex McNabb, (3X per week), which is a less formal, Joe Rogan style radio talk show, is also excellent.

So Roy Cohn succeeds at getting Julius and Ethel Rosenberg executed and continues this campaign against communism. And he you know, while while working in the government, he attempted, of course, attempted to blackmail the army in return for preferential treatment for committee consultant and KONE's rumored lover dated Shyne and left the government in the cloud of scandal. So he returns to New York City to live with his mother and practice law. He was indicted four times from the mid 60s and early 70s for stock swindling, obstructing justice, perjury, bribery, conspiracy, extortion, blackmail, filing false reports. Sounds like a white justice system at work to meet James. And three times he was acquitted. Maybe not so much at work. Well, the justice system was prosecuting him. But, you know, the judges, they really weren't. And that's where one of the famous cone lines come from, which is I don't know. Well, I don't want to know what the law is. I just want to know who the judges and this line has been, you know, serve remanufacturing reprinted over and over. And it's like, don't tell me the law. Tell me the judge. And that sort of becomes a talking point.
But he was acquitted in the fourth time. Ended in mistrial, which gave Cohn this sneering, sinister sheen of invulnerability. He was the prototypical Teflon Donald Trump prototypical guy. And it's funny because he comes he ends up being Trump's mentor. The more unscrupulous he became, the more his practice grew. He was the man to see if you wanted to beat the white system. Right. But here we go, dude. This picture of cone in the office, like these are all frogs. Like these are all Proteau Pepes. And it kind of just. Oh, man, doesn't did it just and it's it's cone sitting on a child's trampoline because that's what that is. With a fucking walrus bind him. It was the having in his hand. Look at the picture. We don't do video but we'll get a picture. James, you people can find this picture. If you look at online. Who took that picture? Who is that? Fucking nuts. Donald, John, Donald Trump in out on a green carpet with like a bunch of pepé frogs and they're all over the place. And yeah, I mean, KONE's aides were all young gay men. As Roger Stone later recalled himself, Cohn believed gays were weak, effeminate. He always seemed to have these young blond boys around, though it just wasn't discussed.
Like, God, this is weird, dude. Doesn't this does it? Like when I saw this picture and I put all that together. You're still sitting there like thunderstruck, aren't you?
I'm just like, I don't want to know what's behind that door. You know, nobody was behind that door. I don't want to know what's on those tapes in that box of records there. But.
Yeah, I mean, and he's got that. He has that, like, soul. Well, it's his gaze is soulless for a few reasons. It's like the soul, this gaze that only a gay Jew puppet master can really can really have. And yeah, this line of kids toys in the carpet is like this bright green, which you could say, oh, it's a 70s man. Come on. It's like, no, this is like designed to look like a kid's room and. Yeah, I don't I don't know.
And this is what's going on. This is his office and he's got one of those big old TV's like who remember. I remember seeing TV like this at grandma's house though, like forget Roy Cohn and all this, like one of those big, like, TV and like the wooden case with the real nice built in speakers on either sides. It was a nice TV, but.
Yeah. Where you had to if you walked in front of it or around it, you'd lose reception.
Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. But this. Yeah. This is just really bad. And I was reading I don't remember where it's not in the prep but the look that Roy Cohn has someone I think in sworn testimony anonymously said the most striking thing about Roy Cohn or his butt were his pale blue eyes. But the most unsettling thing were was how they seemed to protrude out of the sides of his head.
They're kind of they're kind of far apart. And he looks he looks kind of weird.
But anyway, Cohn's office was filled with a menagerie of stuffed animals and walls lined with photos of him with J. Edgar Hoover, Joe McCarthy and Donald Trump, just like he's sitting there on this little trampoline with like a young Donald Trump. Trump became a protege of Roy Cohn after meeting him in 1973. It was Cohn who trot Trump to counterpunch viciously, deny everything, stiff your creditors, manipulate the tabloids. As Donald Trump would later tell the story, he ran into cone for the first time at LA Club, a members only nightspot in Manhattan in the east 50s, where models and fashionistas and Eurotrash went to be seen. The government has just filed suit against our company, Trump explained, saying that we discriminated against blacks. What do you think I should do? Cohn says Tell them to go to hell and fight the thing in court and let them prove that you discriminated. Cohn shot back. The Trumps would soon retain Cohn to represent them. So Cohn was his lawyer for the whenever they were, you know, they they were allegedly made. Probably this was true. But apparently what happened with this was whenever they would get an applicant at one of these apartment buildings, somebody who was taking the applications was writing a little tiny little letter see on the applications to indicate colored. So, I mean, but, you know, it says, you know, Frank Trump and Fred Fred Trump, Chuck Trump, Chuck Trump and Donald, you know, we've done the deep dive on those guys, too, before. It's like, well, I'm I'm sure this is a common practice all over Jewish New York and Jewish owned, greedy drawerful landlords. It's just that Trump and in Fred in Trump's were called out for it. That's the thing.
It's like, you know, we've been more honest if Konatsu. But Donald, everybody does this, Donald. We don't know if he did actually say he probably said Donald, everybody. Does this make them make him prove that you discriminated and. No, I'll represent you get the right judge and will be fine. But yeah.
Or Donald, really, you're using your you're creating a paper record of this. I mean, come on. Look, we've been doing this for a long time. We know how to do this a little bit better than you do. Yeah. And the other thing, too, is that now white society whites are blamed for this evil white supremacy in renting discrimination. Right. When in reality, I mean the Trumps. We're one of the very few gentile families involved in this business at the time.
Right. Yeah. And it's always the thing is. So we was discriminated against in the housing industry. It's like, well, who's doing that, though? Let's talk about that. So to the extent it's even real. Right. Right.
No, it's I think it's real, too, to a certain extent. I mean, once once these greedy Trausch landlords get subsidies and get covered by the government, then, yeah, they have more leeway. But when when back in the 1950s, when it was really just a cash business and, you know, they had to make a profit and do well, they couldn't and they didn't have help from the government to the extent that they do today. They had to they had to play play these games. Now they don't really have to do any more of a cone. Was a close friend and confident of Arthur Finkelstein, both of whom served as advisors to Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. Mazing. And this is this little nugget I forgot from the Finkelstein deep dive. But apparently Bill Clinton used to call Finkelstein's self-loathing, which in sort of Jewish Jewish vernacular is a phrase that is used by Jews against Jews. So it's kind of funny that Bill Clinton is taking that shot.
I wonder it was it was it Dicky Morris who told Bill Clinton to do that against his fellow political consultant? You know, Dick. Morris second on toes, the prostitutes while he's on the phone in the White House. Yeah, right. Dude, I didn't know that story. It's disgusting. Oh yeah. Look it up.
That's why that's like Dick Morris isn't on TV anymore, because Dick Morris is is another self-loathing Jew basically say, I haven't seen that guy since, like the Obama era. Oh, bro. Like when he would come on TV and he would be on he would be on Hannity. And he's just like just a disgusting, filthy animal of a person. And then that then that accent. Oh, my God, it's bad.
So but the GOP is literally full of homosexuals. Right. You have Roy Cohn, Arthur Finkelstein, Joe McCarthy, MRV Lieberman, who MRV Lieberman, who is a co-founder of the National Review. David Brock, before he switched and went on the other side, Ken Mehlman, Karl Rove's dad, was a fag. I didn't know that at all. Did you? No idea. It's not surprise.
And of course, Karl Rove, all of these people are interconnected because Lee Atwater, who if you're familiar in the D.C. area, there's a string of restaurants called Red Hot Blue, which is owned by the ATWA. It was a restaurant started by the Atwater family. It's basically like by boomers for boomers. It's really not the best barbecue, but it's a place that people enjoy going that's owned by the Atwater's and Atwater and Charlie Black and Roger Stone and Paul Manafort. Like all of these guys, all work worked in various forms as political fixers. Roy Cohn is just another iteration. And so the fact that Karl Rove's dad, this is where Karl Rove got his start with, with Lee Atwater. So it's it's just it's all just one big incestuous homosexual pit. And Karl Rove I mean, I don't know, bro, but he's just like the bear in the room, I suppose. But Kuhn introduces Trump to Rupert Murdoch a few days, a few days, a few years later, which is the beginning of a long, close knit relationship between the two. Murdoch, of course, was a client of Roy Cohn's, and Cohn repeatedly pressured Ronald Reagan to further Murdoch interests. Cohn was closely associated with numerous celebrities, famous politicians and political operatives, including Mayor of New York Abraham Beame and then assemblyman from Brooklyn and future Senator Chuck Shoma.
So it yeah, it's a kosher sandwich for you. But behind the scenes, it's just like these people are all one big happy family. Oh, yeah. Apparently, Justin Trudeau's mother, Margaret, attended KONE's birthday party in 1979 and knocked over his birthday cake. So, yeah, that too. Based. Yeah, based. Wow. KONE's powerful friends in the media, a group that also included Abe Rosenthal, executive editor at The New York Times. William Safire. Does that sound familiar to you, James? Longtime New York Times columnist, New York Magazine editor George Sokolowski, who is the New York Herald Tribune. NBC ABC Sokolsky ran the American Jewish League against communism with Cohen for several years. Right. So who is the guy who started that? Rabbi Benny Schultz. Now, it's been taken up by George Sokolowski, who was right. He ran the American Jewish League VNR against communism while also being a major media guy. Right. And he was later given a Medal of Honor after Sokolsky Cohn was also close with. You'll never guess William F. Buckley of the National Review. So he's close with Liebman and Buckley. And yeah, the National Review often attacked Cohen's political enemies, including Manhattan D.A. Robert Morgenthau, out in their columns using Cohen as an anonymous source.
Just ever. Yeah. Yeah.
Yeah, that's great. And then and then, so Sokolsky, running the American Jewish League against Communism, gave William F. Buckley a medal from the Jewish League against communism in 1966. Along with Lewis Rosenstiel. Yeah. And then Buckley later got a loan from oh my gosh, Cohn was influencing some bank and was able to pull some strings and get William F. Buckley a loan. Sixty five thousand dollars to buy a luxury boat. The yacht itself on behalf Royko.
It's so funny how William F. Buckley and the whole Buckley, a sort of Brooks Brothers Navy blue suit, gold button boat, shoe wearing khaki pant wearing like Republican college, Republi like this whole look is is from William F. Buckley. And he's just like a Jew puppet, like even the boat that goes that goes with your boat shoes came from alone that he probably would have not. Well, he would have gotten it, but at a much higher cost. But look what he had to do to get that boat. It's just like sell out, sell out his own people. Now, you mentioned Lou Rosenstiel. We'll be talking about him. It's a part that I left out and it foreshadowed a little bit. We're going to talk about that more. But Cohen also introduce Trump to Roger Stone. That's how they met. Alan Dershowitz was a client of Roy Cohn's. Cohen was also a central figure at Studio 54 as orgy and drug scene. Cohn once admitted, and here's where we sell it altogether. You guys ready for this? Some of you priority no where I'm going. But maybe a lot of people don't. Cohn once admitted to former NYPD NYPD detective James Rosen, Steve Rothstein, Jesus Rothstein, that he was part of a rather elaborate sexual blackmail operation that compromised politicians with child prostitutes. Cohn told Rothstein that this operation was being carried out as a means of taking out politicians with communist leanings.
Wow. Already think we're going, James? Yeah. So it's so it's OK. I mean, look, gay prostitutes, but it's OK because it's anti-communist, right? That was the excuse that was used in the beginning anyway.
