Update on postponed Austrian election: Swiss printing company promises new envelopes in 24 hours

CEO of Elco, Hans-Jörg Aerni, says he would also serve Austria with his products


By Carolyn Yeager

A SWISS PRINTING COMPANY, ELCO, HAS SAID IT CAN PRODUCE the absentee voting envelopes for the Austrian presidential election in 24 hours!

So what is it with the Social Democrat/Peoples Party coalition government deciding it needs a two-month delay to deal with the faulty envelopes for the repeat run-off election scheduled for October 2nd – still over 2 weeks away. Doesn't this make the whole hulabaloo over having to re-arrange the voting schedule look ridiculous?

Another farcical holocaust trial begins in northeastern Germany

Hubert Zafke arrives at court in Neubrandenburg, assisted by his three sons.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE GERMAN JUSTICE SYSTEM CONTINUES TO SERVE JEWISH VENGEANCE as the “holocaust' trial of Hubert Zafke got underway on Monday … sort of. It was scheduled to start in February at the Neubrandenburg state court in northeastern Germany, but had been postponed three times due to the health of the 95-year-old WWII veteran.

Zafke was pushed into court in a wheelchair by three of his four sons, whose discontent with the process was written on their faces (according to the Der Spiegel reporter). The elder Zafke suffers from poor hearing, but still lives independently at home in a Mecklenburg village, thanks to family help. The reporter also said the court didn't seem very interested in trying the case.

Austria postpones election until December 4th, against objections

FPÖ General Secretary Herbert Kickl calls for reform of the postal vote in Austria.


NORBERT HOFER WAS FAVORED TO WIN THE OCTOBER 2ND PRESIDENTAL RUNOFF ELECTION according to polling results, when a problem arose with the glue on the mail-in envelopes. The glue was defective! The envelopes came open by themselves, making them invalid. This under the government leadership of the Social Democratic Party (SPÖ).

What to do? Postpone the election for two more months, until December 4, of course, giving them time to turn things around! As Heinz-Christian Strache of Hofer's party, the Freedom Party (FPÖ), has been asking: "Has Austria become a banana republic?" Does it take two months to prepare new postal voting cards in a country as small as Austria? Do they think that by December people will be distracted with the winter holidays, including Christmas, and forget to vote? Or perhaps a big snowstorm will hamper the voting in the rural areas where the FPÖ is strong.

Frauke Petry interview opens discussion on 'Völkisch' as an acceptable term in Germany

Frauke Petry as photographed by Die Welt for their interview.


By Carolyn Yeager

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH WELT AM SONNTAG NEWSPAPER, the chief of the Alternative for Germany party came to the defense of the much-maligned adjective völkisch [meaning popular; of the people, national]. Naturally the liberal German media is tearing into her. They call the word racist because it was used by the National Socialists. It stems, of course, from the word Volk [the people; nation], in common usage still today and fully acceptable.

Deutsche Welle guilty of holocaust revisionism in article about radio operator Helma M.

The entrance to the Auschwitz museum grounds in Oswiecim, Poland as it looks today.


ELECTIONS ARE GOING ON  EVERYWHERE NOW AND FACT-CHECKING IS A BIG TOPIC for news editors and pundits.

So I ask, why is there never any fact-checking for news stories that reference the so-called Holocaust? Case in point: an article posted yesterday at DW.com about German prosecutors “shelving” their case against a 92-year-old woman who served as a radio-operator at the Auschwitz main camp. The article ends with the obligatory mention of “six million,” which itself is a figment of the imagination.

However, in this instance, it is written that

During the Holocaust, the Nazis killed more than 6 million people, most of them Jews, in a deliberate plan of extermination that reached a terrible peak between 1941 and 1945.

Exit polls show AfD beating Merkel's CDU with 21% of the vote in northeast state elections

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-09-04 13:09

The AfD billboard in the background reads "So that Germany is not destroyed."


Alternative für Deutschland party representatives entered Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's 71-seat Schwerin assembly Sunday for the first time according to exit poll results. Coming in at 21% puts them in 2nd place after the Social Democratic Party.

Incumbent Premier Erwin Sellering, a Social Democrat who has governed in coalition with the regional CDU for the past 10 years, was returned with 30 percent, according to initial results.

This puts Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Party in third place with  19%.

Ursula Haverbeck once again sentenced to jail in Germany

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2016-09-02 14:25

Ursula Haverbeck sits head and shoulders above the ruling political parties in Germany, secure in knowing she speaks from the pristine realm of truth.


By Carolyn Yeager

JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE "HOLOCAUST" NON-HISTORICAL NARRATIVE, trying to get an accurate picture of the persecution of Ursula Haverbeck is made very difficult by the mainstream media.

Even Wikipedia is not up to date on Haverbeck in 2016!

Deutsche Welle, Germany's state news service, ran a September 2nd article (quickly removed from the "Top Stories" page - I caught it just in time!) reporting the 87-year old “Nazi Grandma” was sentenced to 8 months in jail for a letter she sent to Detmold Mayor Rainer Heller complaining about the trial of Reinhold Hanning in that city. This is different from the 10-month sentence she was given late last year for a TV interview.

A close encounter between wartime rivals only revealed 74 years later

On August 28, 1942, kite-flying four-year-old John Lewthwaite of St. Just, Cornwall got a "cheery wave" from Lt. Poldi Wenger as he flew by at very low level on his way to Penzance.

IT'S A STORY THAT ALWAYS BEGGED TO BE TOLD, but the sensitivities of the English concerning the bombing by Germany in 1940-42 made it one that John Lewthwaite was hesitant to tell. Even today.

So he wrote to me with his tale.

The encounter took place seventy-four years ago this month on August 28, as he remembered it. Lewthwaite was only 4 years old, but he's sure of what he experienced on that summer afternoon while out flying kites with a friend, in a field just north of Lands End.

Hadding Scott notices a crucial misrepresentation in "Denial" trailer

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2016-08-25 09:31

Actress Rachel Weisz plays Deborah Lipstadt in the upcoming film Denial about David Irving's libel trial against her.


by Hadding Scott

THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF THE FILM DENIAL, about David Irving's failed libel-suit against Penguin Books and Deborah Lipstadt in 2000, is not to pound David Irving even farther into the dust -- although it may do that -- but to discredit Holocaust Revisionism: hence the film's title is not Irving, but Denial.

To attack Holocaust Revisionism through the person of David Irving, however, requires portraying him as the quintessential Holocaust Revisionist or "Denier," which he never was. The purpose of the film thus requires misrepresentation. Please continue reading at Codoh.com

EU chief Juncker: Borders are the worst invention ever made

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2016-08-23 19:40

Jean-Claude Juncker speaks to Alpbach Media Academy reporters on Monday, August 22, 2016.


FOR EUROPEAN UNION COMMISSION PRESIDENT JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER, the enemies of Europe are nations and borders, not out-of-control migration and the changing racial-religious makeup of the continent. Or people like himself who encourage both.

Speaking at the Alpbach Media Academy Monday morning, Jean-Claude Juncker made some shocking comments, including saying that “borders were the worst invention ever made by politicians.” He called for all borders across Europe to be opened and said solidarity must be given to refugees and their children.
