Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the November 11th-16th, 1941 dinner table conversations and monologues by the German Leader, taken down in shorthand by trusted aide, attorney Heinrich Heim.  Some highlights of this episode:

  • Monarchy is an out-of-date form - example, the Thuringian Royal House lived off the state;
  • Keeping the friendship of the Church is too costly, but we're glad to have its cultural monuments - the great Cathedrals;
  • Frederick the Great's reaction against the Church in defense of the State was definitive;
  • The Germanic Spirit will penetrate the East and bring the people all they need;
  • The success of the Four Year Plan is explained by setting everybody to work within a closed circle economy, not by rearmament;
  • Too many officials, too much paperwork - Hitler wants more local autonomy;
  • Legal system is too lenient; there are no "extenuating circumstances" for treason.

Carolyn looks at the members of the anti-Hitler faction in Germany, dominated by high-level military officers, and asks how they got away with their assassination plots for so long. She also asks: Can a consensus of opinion ever be reached, even among similar people? Some ideas covered:

  • What makes a traitor?
  • Of 30 top leaders, 20 held high military rank (Colonel or above) and 10 were diplomats and Chiefs of Police;
  • It's all in how you view it -to them, they were the loyalists and Hitler was the traitor;
  • While they didn't want the Jews around, they also didn't want to harm them;
  • They believed Germany's enemies were only against Hitler, and wanted the same things they, as Germans, did;
  • Their efforts to remain undetected may have hampered their success in achieving their goal.

On the 70th anniversary of the Allied landing  on Normandy's coast, known as D-Day, which was Friday, June 6, Carolyn looks at the possibility of treason as the reason for the poor Wehrmacht response to the invasion. Highlights include:

  • Generals and even Field Marshals serving in Northwest France in anticipation of the 1944 invasion were the same ones who participated in the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler;
  • Most likely of all to be helping the enemy was Lt. General Hans Speidel, FM Erwin Rommel's Chief of Staff, who had authority while Rommel was away and was slow to pass on information;
  • An unusual number of key leaders were away from their headquarters on June 6, but the weather was thought unfavorable for a landing;
  • Hans Speidel was released by the French after the war and in 1957 was named Commander of the Allied Forces, Central Europe, an important NATO post, held until 1963;
  • The last installment of Oblt. Leopold Wenger's letters from the front have been published - comments are welcomre.

Leopold Wenger's last letters from the Eastern Front, Aug. 1944-Jan. 1945

Translated from the German by Carlos Whitlock Porter

First, an account of the fall of Sevastopol and the loss of Ukraine by the end of June 1944, assembled by Willy Wenger. The letters that follow, the last ones Leopold Wenger wrote to his family, spanned August '44 to January '45. Poldi had been in Ukraine since November 1943, relocating only slowly westward, but now his Group begins to move around, first to Poland, finally closer to Vienna.

Sevastopol Falls

In six to eight weeks, the situation looked quite different. The Allies had landed in Normandy. On 5 May, the 2nd [Russian] Guard Army went on the offensive on the west side of Sevastopol. On 7 May, the [Soviet] 51st Army and Coastal Army expanded their offensives to Balaklava and conquered the crest of the Sapun mountains, with which the German commanders, two years before, had sealed the [fate of the] siege. The German commanders now abandoned their lines all the way to Inkerman, where they intended to regroup for a counterattack, after gaining the relative security of the commanding mountain heights. The situation of the defenders was desperate. One German division after the other gave way. On 8 May, General Schörner issued an order to the Navy and Luftwaffe to make the best of a bad job. On 9 May, the Soviets liberated Sevastopol. A single German unit fought a rearguard action for four days on the Kherson peninsula to permit the embarkation of survivors.

Hitler talks about the effect of diet on disease in this episode. Here he dines out of doors with his officers as ordinary soldiers look on; the short officer in the background must be Helmuth Stieff, later executed for treason. They are having soup (a Führer favorite) with fresh fruit on the table. 

Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the Nov. 2nd-6th 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by trusted aide, attorney Heinrich Heim. Topics included in this episode:

  •  The dimensions of Europe have changed over the years;
  •  Criminals cannot be tolerated in society during wartime but juvenile criminals need special treatment;
  •  Diet and long life, and freedom from disease;
  •  Progress of the Germanic race and peculiarities of the Jewish mind;
  •  Standards for promotion, and fairness in handing out awards

Carolyn does her first show under the heading “Traitors and Misfits," alluding in this instance to Tanstaafl and DanielS respectively, who are both currently active at the Majority Rights web site, where Adolf Hitler is seen as the "anti-White." Some highlights:

  • How I met Daniel Sienkiewicz and his relationship to Tanstaafl;
  • "Tan" comments on German-Americans, Carolyn Yeager and TWN, and his role in White Nationalism as a guest on Majority Rights Radio on May 29;
  • "Guessedworker" believes (see comment #25),  like so many others, that the Germans genocided the Jews;
  • DanielS posts all over MR the reasons why Hitler cannot and does not represent "White/European" people: Because he fought against other European people (scratch your head on that one);
  • Carolyn's bottom line: There is no unity among Whites and there never will be - it's a false hope that fits into a a leftist ideology;
  • Nothing can take the place of strong leadership.

Saturday Afternoon: Who Started WWI and Why?

The current year 2014 is the centenary (100th anniversary) of the start of what came to be called the First World War, called "The Great War" before WWII. To learn how and why this war took place, Carolyn goes to two sources: Thomas Dalton's "The Jewish Hand in the World Wars, part 1" and the introduction and first chapter of The Hidden History: Secret Origins of the First World War by Gerry Docherty and Jim MacGregor. To the question: Were the Jews or the British responsible? How about both?

  • How a small number of Jews can control entire nations;
  • Zionists set out to obtain ownership of Palestine for the Jews;
  • The English establishment was willing to make deals with Jewish Zionists to bring the USA into the war;
  • Cecil Rhodes and the Society of the Elect were a secret group of very powerful Englishmen with the goal of controlling the entire world;
  • The behavior of England in South Africa/Rhodesia is a preview of their nonchalance about the slaughter of millions of Europeans in 1914-18;
  • Are the Royal Institute of International Affairs and it's American counterpart, the Council on Foreign Relations, the direct descendants of Cecil Rhodes' "Association of Helpers"?

Hitler stands with two members of his paramilitary wing in 1923, men he remembers as "jolly rogues" who were invaluable to him because of their willingness to sacrifice.

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the October 30-November 2, 1941 dinner table conversations and monologues by the German Leader, taken down in shorthand by trusted aide, attorney Heinrich Heim.  Topics included in this episode:

  • The Fuehrer discusses a hunting-trip taken by some of his Ministers and Reichsleaders;
  • Sharp criticism of the Foreign Office for its lack of ingenuity;
  • For high officials, the interests of the State and private investment conflict;
  • Plan to improve the Civil Service and Judiciary;
  • Social justice before everything - Masses are the source of the elite - Soldiers recognize a commander.

The Heretics' Hour: Metapedia as a mirror of White Nationalist failure

Carolyn relates some strong prejudices and inaccuracies she has come across mainly on the "White Media" pages at Metapedia and describes the very open process that produces these pages. The end result is that much of what is presented about pro-White and "patriotic" websites and networks is written by very few people, and some pages are totally the work of a single person (called a User). Some of the reasons for this:

  • Necessary but problematic anonymity of all Users at Metapedia;
  • Volunteer nature of the work means very few are willing to do it;
  • Favoritism based on in-group thinking, for example among homosexuals or among different "alternative" factions;
  • Users without the necessary research and writing skills;
  • Tolerance of misinformation, disinformation, use of rumors, second and third-hand information, and even lies;
  • A true, healthy Anglo-Saxon based nationalism for the U.S. needs to be developed.

The return of Saturday Afternoon with Carolyn?

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2014-05-25 15:24

Thanks enzog! I love it.

You've really cornered me with this. If Adolf himself wants me to continue producing Saturday Afternoon shows, how can I not? In fact, just seeing this gives me a burst of energy. Laughing

I thought I might have a Saturday show yesterday, but other things got in the way. I will need to do some, though, because I have more material and topics than available show space with just The Heretics' Hour.

I want to confess that I was uncomfortable in the past when you proclaimed me to be "a leader in the pro-White movement" or, as you're doing in this current post, "the world’s leading commentator on the Third Reich." I did not love you for it. But now, after all that has been happening in just the past month and a half, I am starting to agree with you!

As I look about, I see less of both leadership and respect for truth. I see a lot of retreat and cowardice. I don't see much of anyone with what I consider compelling things to say. So, while it's a sad day, in my opinion, when I feel that I have as much or more to offer than whoever else is out there, I am ready to take myself more seriously. That doen't mean I will start leading anything, but I will try not to retreat into that false modesty and/or fear of success (which is always accompanied by loss of privacy) that I have always tended toward. One thing going for me: I've always been right. Me and Adolf, eh?
