Lying during war: A sampling from “The Fatherland”

Why is the establishment press always pro-England, anti-Germany?  By Carolyn Yeager

MOST HAVE LEARNED BY NOW that the descriptions of atrocities carried out by German soldiers on Belgian and French civilians in the opening weeks of the Great European War were not true, were in fact British lies happily repeated by the press. But they were believed at the time, and these fictional atrocities were of the most gruesome kind—chopping off the hands of children, raping and bayoneting women, burning down churches and other buildings after locking civilians inside. The American newspapers carried these stories and a great many people believed them. It wasn't until after the war was over that Britain began to admit, under pressure of evidence to the contrary compiled by the German Foreign Office, that they were propaganda lies designed to gain the sympathy, and arouse the indignation, of the public—and most especially the Americans. However, there was never an official apology or correction.

Such lies were obviously designed to create hatred and fear of the German Army and even the entire German nation. The English justify such tactics in the name of saving England and the world from great evil. The major newspapers were owned and managed by people who were pro-Britain and whomever Britain was allied with. The German-American editors of The Fatherland were wise to this and devoted some space in most issues to explaining and exposing it to their readers. Sometimes it was the readers who wrote to instruct the magazine about the “unbelievable” and so very “un-German” behavior attributed to the military of a country and people they admired or were kin to.

“The Fatherland” weekly covered The Great War in Europe from a German-American perspective

Very first issue of The Fatherland weekly dated August 10, 1914 appeared immediately after war "broke out" on July 28th following the assasination of the Austrian Crown Prince exactly one month earlier.

SINCE GEORGE SYLVESTER VIERECK CAME TO MY ATTENTION, I haven't been able to get enough of him. Being especially intrigued by his publication THE FATHERLAND, you can imagine my delight upon finding a website with every issue available for reading. Credit for this goes to Pensylvania's Villanova University and the 'digital library' project of its Falvey Memorial Library. Pennsylvania has thankfully not forgotten to recognize its large ethnic German population—the 2000 US Census reports it at over 3 million, the highest total number of any U.S. state outside of California. [The highest in percent of population is North Dakota. My home state of Illinois is way down in 17th place, yet because of greater overall population still numbered almost 2.5 million Germans in the 2000 census, higher than Wisconsin's 2.2 million, though Wisconsin stands in 2nd place on the list.]

Bonus: G. S. Viereck's 1923 interview with Adolf Hitler

I thought this edited interview of Adolf Hitler by George Sylvester Viereck that took place in 1923 was so wonderful to read that I wanted to post it along with the two previous articles. The interview appears here as it was republished in Liberty magazine in July 1932.

I have added my comments in red and also the boldface. -Carolyn

By George Sylvester Viereck

"WHEN I TAKE CHARGE OF GERMANY, I shall end tribute abroad and Bolshevism at home."

Adolf Hitler drained his cup as if it contained not tea, but the lifeblood of Bolshevism.

"Bolshevism," the chief of the Brown Shirts, the Fascists of Germany, continued, gazing at me balefully, "is our greatest menace. Kill Bolshevism in Germany and you restore 70 million people to power. France owes her strength not to her armies but to the forces of Bolshevism and dissension in our midst. 

Lundeen's death paved the way for Minnesota to elect Internationalists

WHEN MINNESOTA SENATOR ERNEST LUNDEEN WAS KILLED IN A PLANE CRASH over Virginia on August 31, 1940, the Republican governor was able, according to the rules, to appoint a fellow Republican to fill the senator's seat. Though Lundeen had begun his political career as a Republican, he had run for office as a Farmer-Labor "Democrat" since 1933.

Governor Harold Stassen (left) had been the keynote speaker at the 1940 Republican National Convention in June that nominated Wendell Willkie as it's presidential candidate. Stassen threw his support to Willkie and even became his official floor manager. The circumstances of the 1940 Republican convention were unusual, from beginning to end.

Willkie was a New York lawyer, corporate executive, Democrat activist and 'interventionist' who only switched to the Republican party in late 1939! He had not run in any primaries but positioned himself as an acceptable choice for a deadlocked convention. Front runners for the nomination, Ohio Sen. Robert Taft, Michigan Sen Arthur Vandenberg, and New York District Attorney Tom Dewey, were all non-interventionist, as was Senator Lundeen of Stassen's state of Minnesota. The east-coast Republicans tended to be the internationalists who wanted to take sides in the European conflicts, and that's who Stassen seemed to be representing.

Three American friends of Germany during wartime—Lundeen, Strassburger and Viereck

MY FRIEND WOUTER SENT ME THE ARTICLE BELOW ABOUT ERNEST LUNDEEN, an American “isolationist” politician from Minnesota who had a fair-minded and truth-seeking attitude toward the German-Polish conflict and the war of September 1939. Through Lundeen, I've learned about a couple others who are also of particular interest to me. Lundeen served in the US House of Representatives from 1917 to 1919, when he was one of 50 Congressmen to vote against the U.S. declaration of war against Germany on April 6, 1917. For this reason he was not renominated by his Republican party. After switching to the Democratic Farmer-Labor party, he was elected again from 1933 to 1937 in the Roosevelt landslide. He then went on to become Minnesota Senator from 1937 until his untimely death in a plane crash on August 31, 1940.

Lundeen's father, C.H. Lundeen was an early pioneer in South Dakota, where Ernest was born and raised. The Lundeens in the USA come from Norway and Austria, according to ancestry sites. Ernest Lundeen is what I would call a true American patriot.

Why I support the AfD

AfD leaders hold a news conference with a generally hostile press.


By Carolyn Yeager

GERMANY NEEDS TO CHANGE. That is, the political philosophy that governs Germany needs to change. The current philosophy is internationalist and guided by remembrance of WWII “crimes”, especially the Holocaust slander. The change I want to see is to a pro-German Germany, a more nationalist Germany. The new party Alternative for Germany (AfD), described as populist, can bring about this change in an unobjectionable way. Yes, the Jews will scream, the left will scream, the communists will scream – but since AfD has no connection with Nazism, since it rejects any return to National Socialism, the party is not in any way 'unconstitutional' … unless and until being pro-German (or even being German!) becomes unconstitutional.

Time for Europe to drop the dishonorable war guilt against Germany

THE WAR GUILT HOAX

By August Krazer

The first part originally appeared as a letter to the editor dated 31 August, 1981, on the 49th anniversary of the eve of Germany's invasion of Poland, Sept 1, 1939. Find the German original here. This is a machine translation lovingly and carefully improved on by yours truly, Carolyn Yeager.


RUDOLF TRENKEL, BORN IN THORN, SAID AT A LECTURE in Scharzfeld/Harz (1978) on the basis of the captured files of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Intelligence, that in 1933 Poland had tried a preventive war against Germany with the support of France, as well as in 1936.

In the summer of 1939 more than 50,000 Germans were imprisoned, 70,000 fled, and "thousands of ethnic German women and children, men and old people were brutally murdered."

German establishment tries to create scandal around AfD star Alice Weidel

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2018-11-17 11:33

By  Carolyn Yeager

AS THE AFD'S ANNUAL PARTY CONFERENCE BEGAN in Magdeburg on Friday, one issue on the agenda is dealing with the improper donation charges being thrown around  by the other parties and the media, particularly the Deutsche Welle (DW) International broadcaster and it's allies.

I have already read at least three full articles at DW claiming improper handling of Swiss donations by Weidel's campaign. Alice Weidel (pictured) was elected to the Bundestag from the Lake Constance district, which is right on the border with Switzerland. I don't see anyone else playing this up to the extent that DW is doing. As the AfD has risen, DW seems to be intent on its own campaign of talking down and posing AfD as a threat to the Federal Republic's constitutional order.

Monica Schaefer's first interview after returning to Canada

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-11-16 21:43

The Brian Ruhe Show nabs first interview with "thought criminal" Monica Schaefer who is back home in Canada after her 10 month ordeal in the German Justice system. She tells Brian just about everything you'd want to know about her experience with the Munich judges and living in the Stadelheim prison. Even if you've been following the events and keeping up, this is a very interesting videocast that will keep you watching and listening. I found it so. Monica is such a good speaker, always precise in her language, plus she is a beautiful soul with an uplifting smile. As 'real' as can be. Watch it at Bitchute here.

My prior posts about Monica are here and here.

First World War ended 100 years ago with an atrociously false and unfair peace

Artist's depiction of the World War I armistice signing in the rail car at Compiegne: Germany's Matthias Erzberger (center, standing) and France's Marshal Ferdinand Foch (at right, standing) negotiate what is now called in fake history the German capitulation.


By Carolyn Yeager

ON THE 11TH DAY OF THE 11TH MONTH OF NOVEMBER 1918, a German government delegation led by Mathias Erzberger crossed into France and signed a cease-fire at the 11th hour in the presence of Marshall Ferdinand Foch and other French and British military commanders. Yet this is now called by official historians a German surrender.


Update: See some great pics and news items in real time here: https://twitter.com/RealTimeWW1


Germany never intended to surrender militarily, but between this date and 28 June, 1919 when a peace treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Versailles palace outside Paris, the United States, Britain, France and Italy colluded in separating Germany from her allies, bullying and blockading (starving) her into accepting unacceptable conditions of peace. They did the same with Austria and Hungary, in separate treaties.
