Survivors from the icy waters being pulled up into a rescue helicopter.

Moscow (Reuters) - Greed and corruption were to blame for the sinking of a Russian trawler last week in which at least 56 crew died, a spokesman for investigators said on Wednesday.

The Dalniy Vostok fishing vessel sank in the icy Sea of Okhotsk off Russia's far eastern coast last Thursday (April 2). Sixty-three people were rescued out of a crew of 132 people, with 13 missing presumed dead.

Seventy-eight of those on board were Russian and 42 were from Myanmar (southeast Asia). The remainder were from Vanuatu (Oceania), Latvia and Ukraine.

Text of Himmler's Secret Speech to Gauleiters, August 3, 1944, with commentary

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-04-01 22:17

Translated by Shoahbloger

Translation of a secret speech for Gauleiters (district leaders of NSDAP) held 2 weeks after the assassination attempt on Hitler by Stauffenberg. Himmler talks about the treacherous and defeatist attitudes activities in the leadership of the Wehrmacht before and during the War,  about the conspiracy to kill Hitler and take power in Germany, and the consequences of the 20th of July. A copy of this speech was deposited by Martin Bormann in the Central Archive of NSDAP and today it is at the Institut for Zeitgeschichte in Munich. It was published in Vierteljahrshefte für Zeitgeschichte in 1953.

Shoahbloger noted: The speech may appear a little rambling but, according to witnesses, Himmler just improvised it without notes and the only text of the speech was that taken down by stenographers.

Carolyn's commentary: On the contrary, it seems to me to follow a definite sequence of events for something not written down. Compared to this, Hitler's Platterhof speech in May, 1944 appears more rambling. Hitler said of Himmler that he was an organizational genius, organizing the SS, the Security Police and anything else given to him to do, brilliantly. I think we see this ability in the clear inner structure of this “improvised” talk.

The Heretics' Hour: The Cult of the Individual

The horrifying crash of a Germanwings airliner by a stressed-out co-pilot shows us what the result can be for upholding individual rights over national or community rights. The Third Reich upheld the good of the community over the individual; in reaction, Germany now holds individual "rights" sancrosanct, and the community be damned.

Carolyn also remarks on another kind of crash at The Daily Stormer, with the "departure" of a top writer over disagreements to do with its new positioning as a place for men to talk to each other without women bothering them.

Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the August 28-31, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by attorney Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:

  • Divide and conquer - The blood of our race - Austrian Empire and British Empire run by minority - perpetual warfare;
  • Criticism of instructional method in secondary schools - too much study not healthy - introduction of universal military service one of greatest events in history;
  • Germany land of poets and thinkers? - Sharnhorst brought us back to sanity - value of perseverance supported by enthusiasm;
  • Bolsheviks and prostitution - Lloyd George at Versailles -destruction of Duke of Windsor - Jews in Britain - Churchill an unprincipled swine.

Atten: There was a volume problem during the first 30 min. of this episode which I rectified fairly well with Audacity but it's still uneven. Apologies.

How the Aspirin trademark was stolen from Germany at the Versailles Treaty

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-03-25 18:08

In 1898-99 German chemist Felix Hoffmann came across a recipe for a salicylic acid compound made by "French" chemist Charles Frederic Gerhardt (a German name).

Though the salicin from Willow Bark was known to relieve pain and reduce fever since it was isolated in the 1820's, it also upset the stomach. A few decades later, Gerhardt found that combining acetyl chloride with the salicylic acid made it less irritating. But he also decided it was too complex to make and dropped the idea.

Some years later, Hoffmann tested the recipe himself and found it worked. Already an employee of Bayer, he convinced the company to make the drug and name it Aspirin - from acetyl chloide and spiraea ulmaria, the plant salicylic acid comes from. First appearing as a powder, Bayer didn't release it in tablet form until 1915. [Image at right: bottle of Aspirin powder from 1899, from Bayer archives]

But after World War I Bayer was forced to give up the trademark as part of German war reparations! At the Treaty of Versailles, the trademark for Aspirin and for Heroin were given to France, Britain, Russia and the United States. 

That is how aspirin became a cheap drug and a generic name ... just to keep a German company from making millions off it.

The Heretics's Hour: Greek and Russian Disconnect from Reality

Notice to listeners:  The first 8 minutes sound like I'm in an echo chamber, but then it clears up. Not to worry, the whole program is not like that.

  • Carolyn speaks to the way the (Jewish-American, leftist) media portrays Greece vis a vis Germany. And why tying “Grexit” to euro zone failure, thus to EU failure, is a lie;
  • Who attended Sunday's first “Russian International Conservative Forum” in St. Petersburg, sponsored by the Rodina nationalist party? It was openly billed as a gathering to “defend the interests of Russia” in the ongoing occupation-dispute over Crimea and Ukraine, so there were very few antifa protestors.

Varoufakis finally forced to face financial facts

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2015-03-21 13:14

IMF Director Christine Lagarde and Greek Finance Minister Yannis Vaurofakis face off, showing a marked resemblance to one another.

By Carolyn Yeager

The latest Greek hero to swagger around on the world stage, Yannis Varoufakis is now having to pull back from his braggadocio and unrestrained comments about Germany. Finally forced to face the financial facts of Europe's unwillingness to continue indulging Greece as Europe's spoiled child, Varoufakis is relenting and may even have lost some standing with his Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipris.

His latest comment no longer insists that the "middle-finger video" was faked, since he's been caught out on that one. He has now written a "pretend" conciliatory blog post addressed to Germany, calling for an end to the "toxic blame game." He presents this blame as coming from both sides, whereas it was 95 to 100% the work of himself and Tsipris, and their Syriza Party political strategy. Their German  counterparts were simply responding as accurately as they could to some outrageous demands and insults from this new Greek government.
