Artwork is a gift from 'endzog.' The statement at lower left reads "The Heretic Hour fifth Anniversary."

Carolyn Yeager marks five years of hosting this weekly radio broadcast, from its debut on March 1, 2010 up to tonight's program on March 2, 2015. She tells the story of The Heretics' Hour from it's conception in 2009, its birth at Voice of Reason Radio Network in Jan-Feb 2010, and its sometimes tumultuous changes and controversial subjects. She will cover her favorite program topics and "best shows." And she will talk about many of the characters she got involved with and who got involved with her ... for better or for worse.

Hadding calls in at the end for a fairly long discussion.

Churchill goes to Moscow in August 1942 to bring a disappointing message to Stalin?

Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the August 7-16, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by attorney Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:

  • Churchill to visit Stalin, Hitler is intrigued as to why;
  • Germans are in Crimea to stay, says AH, and winning over the peasantry;
  • British have no rights to decide anything in Europe, Rumanians vs Hungarians and the Viennese;
  • Riches of Ukraine, Reichsmarks and Ostmarks, the parson class are enemies of the state;
  • Very interesting account of Hitler presenting his party program to political clubs in 1921-22 with Admiral Schröder, an important early supporter;
  • Hitler on Dance as artistic expression: most beautiful is the waltz, next the Bavarian Schuhplattler done by men;

The Heretics' Hour : Why Tolerance is the 'toxic trait'

The idea of Tolerance as a total good  has insidiously been incorporated into our modern social thinking, and is still increasing in strength and reach. Some of the points brought up in this program:

  • Tolerance has replaced Truth as the major aim of education;
  • Adolf Hitler made it very clear from 1925 up to 1945 that he did not believe in nor practice tolerance;
  • Tolerance is contrary to the idea that life is an eternal struggle for survival;
  • Survival depends on 3 things: the quality of the race, giving significance to the individual personality, and recognition that life is synonymous with struggle;
  • Hitler's 1927 paper The Road to Resurgence written for Emil Kirdorf is discussed;
  • In 1944, Hitler said "tolerance is only understandable as signs of inner insecurity" and "It is madness to imagine that political views must be tolerant."

Carolyn uses these sources: Mein Kampf 1925, "Road to Resurgence" 1927, Table Talk 1942, and  "Talk to Officers at Platterhof" 1944.

70 years ago, one third of Pforzheim's population perished in 16 minutes

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2015-02-22 15:22

Old Pforzheim church and market square with monument of Bismarck.

On February 23, 1945, the Royal Air Force attacked the mid-size city of Pforzheim in Baden, in southwestern Germany, for the last time--the previous times being six night raids in Oct. 1944 and one in November. They didn't need to do it again because this attack by 378 aircraft, all but 10 of them heavy bombers, dropped 730 tons of explosives and 820 tons of incendiary bombs and set off the intended firestorm that consumed every building of the town center.

Nearly sixty thousand people were in the town that night. 17,600 of them - one out of three Pforzheimers - were officialy counted as dead and thousands were injured.

The post-war British Bombing Survey Unit boasted that the bombing destruction of Pforzheim was "probably the greatest proportion [percentage] in one raid during the war.” It was considered a complete and resounding success at the time. Yet even after such a complete success by the British, the US Air Force on March 4th bombed the area around the Kupferhammer (main hotel and square), the pilots flying low and opening fire on crowds of civilian survivors, murdering 100 or more. They didn't get around to bombing the railway facilities and destroying the autobahn until March 14, 16, 18, 20 and 24th.

Peasant spreading manure. Hitler said of the German peasant farmers, "The peasantry is the solid backbone of the nation, for husbandry is the most chancy occupation on earth."

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Aug. 3-6, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide Heinrich Heim, who has returned. Included in this episode:

  • Hitler uses the instinctual behaviors within bee and ant colonies to explain the value of merciless perseverence when its a question of survival;
  • American military courts established in Britain - Poor military decision-making influenced by Jews;
  • Food and food supply - stories of Prince Arenberg;
  • Praise plus criticism for the Italians -more on ruling the Eastern territories;
  • Living in open rather than crowded spaces gives one a wider view - St. Petersburg and Moscow must be destroyed - creating markets in the occupied East;
  • Mistreatment of the peasant class led to migration of some of the best of Germans - France and Italy both have strong peasantry which stabilizes a nation.

Putin to the left, Putin to the right

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-02-18 21:45

Some interesting comments by Igor Kubansky on rufabula.com were discovered and posted by Paul Goble yesterday:

“The victory of the left radicals in Greece shows that the priorities of the Kremlin in its search for ‘agents of influence’ has not changed a great deal since the times of the USSR.”

For many in Ukraine, the West and even in Russia, “it has long been a commonplace to say that 'in the West,' the ultra-right supports Putin,'" and point to the French National Front, the Hungarian Jobbik movement, the Bulgarian Ataka party and 'various Serbian organizations'.”

And these same commentators point to the rightwing Golden Dawn group in Greece which declares that it “does not want to see Europe slavishly subordinate to American policy” but rather a Europe to which Russia would belong” and says that Berlin and Washington organized the Maidan in Ukraine and the persecution of Orthodox Christians there.

The Heretics' Hour: What the Fuehrer did and didn't say in his Platterhof talk

Adolf Hitler's view on race and the German Volk in his talk to Officers of May 1944 has been misrepresented by Veronica Clark in two books that she has sold on Amazon. Carolyn discusses the most interesting parts of the talk and points out the mistakes in Clark's translation:

  • Changing the word Volk to Rasse, or race, in one instance where it could not be an honest error (on page 48 of the German copy, shown at right - click on image for enlarged view);
  • Other inexplicably poor translation seemingly designed to detract from Hitler's strict attitude on race;
  • Attributing to Adolf Hitler in her foreward a false quote that she knew was actually written by another man, Otto Wagener;
  • Hadding Scott comes on the line in the last 15-20 minutes and confirms the correctness of Porter's translation over Clark's in some specific instances.

The Führer's talk to Generals and Officers on May 26, 1944 at the Platterhof in Obersaltzberg, Part 2 of 2

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2015-02-15 20:17

The Platterhof Hotel accommodated National Socialist events and visitors of the Führer, including military officers, when he was staying at his private home on the Obersalzberg.

 Continued from Part 1:

Translated by Carlos Whitlock Porter

The Führer is speaking:

But first, of course, it’s not a pretty picture, I admit it. At first, we had all sorts of difficulties, and you can really get some white hair before you’ve put everything back in order again. But I always counted on one thing: the time will come when that will all have been worth it; then you’ll see that this selection process, which has been made one of the hard principles of the party, is correct. And really, that’s the most basic thing: the most decisive. Since today, when we speak of a national community, you can only do so on the condition of suitable leadership and people.

There are a lot of training courses being given today for officers, in the so-called Ordenburgen [fortresses built by the Teutonic Knights], not just because they’re suited for it but because that gives them an insight into the way we start out with our youth, building up their education. Of course, gentlemen, nothing is perfect. You ought not to forget: we came to power in 1933. The war began in 1939. So we had barely 6 years. During the war, there’s a limit to what we can do to continue building, but there’s no doubt about it: when our people have had 50 years of peace, then we’ll see something: the whole nation will be completely organized, and the leadership of the nation will consist of the best political leadership corps we’ve ever had, carefully selected from the best we’ve got. There’s no doubt about that.

The Outrage and Hypocrisy continues: Reynouard sentenced to prison

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-02-13 21:25

The complaint was brought by a Caen-based association that purports to honor Canada's Second World War soldiers.

French high school teacher Christophe Collet heads the "Westlake Brothers Souvenir Association" named after three Toronto Brothers who died in combat in June 1944. [So they hate all National Socialists, I suppose -cy] "We were expecting to win, but hearing that Reynouard was sentenced to two years was a great joy," Collet said.

Other plaintiffs were the Paris-based International League Against Racism and Anti-Semitism (LICRA), several rural municipalities and a Roman Catholic high school. Reynouard is a life-long practicing Roman Catholic.

Along with a 35,000.00 euro fine, Reynouard is ordered to pay 3,500.00 euro to LICRA and 500.00 euro to Westlake Brothers (Collet's association).

David Chilstein, Jewish criminal law professor, said in a phone call: "Prison sentences in freedom-of-speech issues are usually suspended sentences. But we are in a context of rampant anti-Semitism, and since the January attacks [in Paris] everyone understands the power of words. The court wants to appear tough on anti-Semitism."

Lies told by the BBC about the Dresden Holocaust and the insult of the Coventry comparison

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-02-13 13:57

Dresden Fire Damage Map

In a news story today, the BBC makes historically false statements in its attempt to whitewash the nation's guilt for the Dresden Holocaust in February 1945, 70 years ago. It writes:

  • An estimated 25,000 people died in the British and American attack, which created a firestorm that left 33 sq km (12 sq miles) of the city in ruins.   [How can a firestorm that completely destroyed 33 sq km of a city center teeming with a million additional homeless refugees leave only 25,000 dead? A firestorm is something that is near to impossible to escape. They make no attempt to explain that. Witnesses at the time said the number was two to three hundred thousand.]
