Putin and His Lies

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-01-30 11:32

A pro-Putin rally in Moscow. Are we back to the Stalinist days?

Excerpted from http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/putins-luegen-glaubt-russlands-praesident-die-eigene-propaganda-a-1015309.html; in Russian, at https://openrussia.org/post/view/2370/

During his first and second terms as Russian president, Putin impressed many Western leaders with his knowledge of details and as “a difficult but all the same reliable partner in negotiations.” But those times are now “long past”

Since returning for his third term, Putin has made dishonesty and lies “practically a daily element of Russian policy,” employing “the big lie” as part of a conscious effort to define situations and “small lies” in speeches which raise the question: “Is he only poorly informed or does he believe his own propaganda?”

In the summer of 2012, Putin tried to convince German Chancellor Angela Merkel that protests against him in Moscow were “manifestations of ‘the sexually deformed’” and that those involved in the Pussy Riot actions were “anti-Semites,” statements so at variance with reality and so unnecessary that his German audience was shocked.

Ronald Lauder warns of new catastrophe for Jews

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-01-28 14:45

Ronald Lauder, President of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), used an angry tone to demand protection of Jews from the assembled guests at the 70th Anniversary ceremony at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum on Jan. 27.

By Carolyn Yeager

Ronald Lauder is a man who is used to telling other people what to do.

In his speech on Tuesday at the Auschwitz-Birkenau 70th anniversary ceremony, he told the assembled Jews to force their governments to protect them from antisemitism because “antisemitism leads to places like Auschwitz.” Note he didn't tell Jews to protect themselves, but that their governments must do it for them.

He also told the world what it must do – “All countries must make hate a crime.”

But Lauder didn't even try to explain the cause of antisemitism. He said, “For 70 years, no one can explain Auschwitz.” He said Jews are hated “because they're Jews.” Well, that's a start. There's something about Jews that others don't like. What could it be?

Lauder used his speech to blame everyone but Jews. He said “the Nazis designed the Holocaust, but there was complicity from almost every country in Europe.” (This brought on applause)

Putin holds his own 70th commemoration at Moscow's Jewish museum

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2015-01-27 14:57

Above and below: Vladimir Putin speaks in front of a giant screen at Moscow's Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center during a ceremony to mark the 70th Anniversary of the takeover by the Red Army of the Auschwitz Complex facility where 7000 hospitalized inmates and a few hundred children remained with their caregivers.

Russian President Putin, bypassing the ceremonies in Poland on Tuesday, Jan. 27th, created his own Russian commemoration at the Moscow Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center. 

Attended by Russia's Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar and the orthodox Hasidic male community, Putin said just what Israel wants to hear and decried in a speech what he called "attempts to rewrite history," which is more than ironic considering all the false "history" put out by the Soviet Union--the very "history" Putin stands by as the "truth."

Main points of his speech:

  • Nazi Germany's crimes (including the holocaust) can be neither forgiven nor forgotten;
  • "Any attempts to hush up these events, to distort, re-write history are unacceptable and immoral";

The Heretics' Hour: Tribute to Revisionists

Jan. 26, 2015

This cartoon expresses what Revisionism is: The little boy is the revisionist, the "expert" instructing the crowd is the holohoax historian or museum tour guide, and the people reacting are obviously the mass of uncritical believers who don't even look for themselves but just accept what the "expert" says.

Carolyn Yeager gives her own tribute to Revisionists who brought an island of sanity to all holohoax-weary souls. In case you didn't know, Tuesday, Jan. 27th is the Second International Day of Commemoration in Honor of the Revisionists Who Introduced Sanity to the Auschwitz "Death Camp" Narrative.

  • How to tell when a survivor story is a lie--the mention of gas chamber and Dr. Mengele;
  • Francois Duprat was assassinated with a car bomb in 1978 that left his wife in a wheelchair--and no one was prosecuted;
  • Dariusz Ratajczak's publication in Poland of revisionist arguments against the homicidal gas chamber brought an end to his teaching career and to his life;
  • Paul Rassinier, the "father of revisionism" wrote 6 revisionist books between 1949 and 1967;
  • Thies Christophersen, by publishing The Auschwitz Lie under his own name inspired Wilhelm Staeglich to do the same with his book, The Auschwitz Myth, in 1979;
  • Arthur Vogt was instrumental in causing Juergen Graf to become a revisionist, and supported and encouraged many others;
  • Where would we be today without these brave men? What part can we each play?

No Elie Wiesel, No Barack Obama at the 70th anniversary victim-fest?

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2015-01-25 11:49

Why would anyone want to miss all this fun?

From Jan27.org -

Western leaders bypass the 70th anniversary commemoration at Auschwitz. Not even Elie Wiesel will be there!

Jan. 25 - It turns out that President Francois Hollande of France is the only truly “hands-on” leader of his country who will be present at the Auschwtiz-Birkenau formal ceremony on Tuesday, to which all European leaders were invited.

David Cameron will not be representing the UK and it has not been announced who will.

Joachim Gauck will represent Germany, not Chancellor Angela Merkel.

A chilling future planned for Auschwitz museum

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2015-01-24 15:14

"Lies, damn lies and bigger lies."

Ronald S. Lauder, as head of the World Jewish Congress, is the #1 Jew running the Auschwitz "initiative" for the Tribe, as well as keeping the reparations money flowing from Germany. With the end of living "survivors," new sources must be found and the Big Lie must be kept going.

By Carolyn Yeager

Big plans are afoot in the meeting rooms of leading Jews who have dedicated themselves to perpetuating “The Holocaust” mythology as the true One World Religion. Foremost among these is Ronald S. Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress and the major driving force behind the long-term preservation of the Auschwitz museum complex.

Lauder, son and heir of Estee Lauder of the multi-billion dollar cosmetics firm, is such a recognized, influential figure at Auschwitz that he will deliver a short speech after Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski opens the Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony on Tuesday, Jan. 27. The only other speakers will be survivors, telling their own stories.

Where and what were the "gates of Auschwitz?"

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-01-23 11:33

Is this one of the Gates of Auschwitz that had to be opened by the Red Army? Or is it the one below? Where did they enter? No one can say.

In a radio interview on Wednesday, Jan. 21, Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna gave an interview on the national broadcaster, Polskie Radio, in which he was asked :

Was Poland being petty in not inviting Mr. Putin [to the Jan. 27th ceremony at Auschwitz-Birkenau], considering that Russia was the successor of the Soviet Union and that it was the Red Army that opened the gates of Auschwitz.

Mr. Schetyna, who has a master's degree in history, interjected:

[The camp] was liberated by the First Ukrainian Front and Ukrainians. Ukrainian soldiers ... opened the gates of the camp.

*        *         *

Can anyone show me a photograph of “the gates of Auschwitz” that were “opened” by the Soviet Red Army or the Ukrainian Front?

Russia and Poland feud over who liberated Auschwitz

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-01-23 09:15

Are the Russians accusing Poland of "holocaust denial?"

Just a few days before the Jan. 27th commemoration billed as the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of the World War II Auschwitz-Birkenau internment camps in Poland, top Russian and Polish officials are trading angry charges over "who liberated Auschwitz."

It began over the Russian's complaint that President Putin was not invited in a way that properly honored his majesty's exalted position as representing the Soviet Union's glorious "Red Army Liberators." A Polish diplomat, in turn, said Putin made a decision not to attend, and anyway it was the Ukrainians who liberated Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 1945.

It's very LOL, with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov  accusing Poland's Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna (pictured above right) of "sacrilege." Remember we're dealing with a religion here, so passions do flare as articles of faith are questioned or denied.

This is casting a pall over this year's ceremonies, which have been planned to be the biggest ever at the former camp. Read the full story [fourth item down] on this page at http://jan27.org.
