The following is something of a masterpiece of satiric wit from Giesler. -cy

The Column Saint

In the year 113 the Roman senate erected a gigantic column for the emperor and military leader Trajan. (Shown right) On the capital of the column stood the gilded statue of the honored.

The art historian Bruhns writes ”Used to gigantism and always striving to exceed, Rome created that form of eternal triumph which then did mankind not less convince of its greater impression than the older kind of triumphal arch, now of a lesser rank. As the colossal column expresses the idea of “height” exceptionally well, it can also be used very well for the adoration of the “highest.” Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius were given similar columns in Rome. Arcadius got his at the new capital Constantinople.

When Europe during the Napoleon era felt itself specially close to Rome’s greatness, it presented the new emperor with the Vendome column in Paris—and his conqueror, Alexander of Russia, a second one in Petersburg.”

The emerging Christianity overthrew the images of antique greatness and now paid homage to its believers on imposing columns. After the final decline of the ancient dignities around the 4th and 5th centuries, ascetic Christians requested the top of the Roman columns as pleasing to God. The best known among them was Symion Stylites from Aleppo. Those ascetics and penitents, called stylites or “Säulenheilige (column saints), strove to increase their ranking  by self-elevation.

Fredrick Toben's review of David Cole's "bad boy" book

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2014-07-22 14:29

Fredrick Töben reviews David Cole’s book:
Republican Party Animal: The “Bad Boy of Holocaust History” blows the lid off Hollywood’s secret right-wing underground

Through an internal monologue, the three-page introduction serves to set the scene of a self-declared reluctant author giving an interview to a late-arriving reporter of the JTA – Jewish Telegraph Agency. As he sits in a bar awaiting the reporter’s arrival he reflects upon his own alcoholism and how he had experienced social condemnation because of his Revisionist views, which made him worse than “pedophile Hitler strangling a puppy”.

When I read this sentence I wondered what kind of mindset – only a sick mind – could come up with such an expression, which is fully in tune with the obscenities one finds in the racist-imbued Talmud.

And again I recall German philosopher Martin Heidegger’s words of wisdom that blows Judaism’s “racist-cover”, when he states: “The Jews, with their marked gift for calculating, live, already for the longest time, according to the principle of race, which is why they are resisting its consistent application with utmost violence.”

Carolyn Yeager covers a number of items, issues and individuals that have captured her attention this week, all related to the theme of traitors.

  • Documents reveal parties responsible for causing WWI;

  • Traitors at the Federal Reserve;

  • Putin in denial, shades of Katyn;

  • More on Albert Speer's jew-friendly "remorse";

  • David Cole-Stein can't avoid the scrutiny of Robert Faurisson.

Will Putin follow Stalin's Katyn strategy on the airline shoot-down?

In dealing with the tragedy of the downed Malaysian airliner MH17, the leader of the Russian Federation, President Vladimir Putin is behaving more and more like a throwback to Josef Stalin and his cover-up of the Katyn massacre. It was Stalin who approved the murder of thousands of Polish nationals in 1940, including military officers, dumping their bodies in mass graves hidden from view in the Katyn Forest near Smolensk, Russia.

If the Wehrmacht had not invaded Russia in Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, the evidence of this massacre would never have been found. Here is a recount of how the crime was discovered, taken from Wikipedia:

The government of National-Socialist Germany announced the discovery of mass graves in the Katyn Forest in 1943. When the London-based  Polish government-in-exile asked for an investigation by the International Red Cross, Stalin immediately severed diplomatic relations with it. The Soviet Union claimed the victims had been murdered by the Nazis, and continued to deny responsibility for the massacres until 1990, when it officially acknowledged and condemned the perpetration of the killings by the NKVD, as well as the subsequent cover-up by the Soviet government.

In this section of his book, Giesler gives his impressions and an architectural critique on Albert Speer's June 1971 interview in Playboy magazine. I have included it in its entirety, even the more technical parts that were, in a few places, difficult for me to decipher from the part of Wilhelm Kriessmann's original translation which never went through the editing process between the two of us before he died in December 2012.  ~Carolyn Yeager

Speer in the "Playboy"

 From Hermann Giesler’s memoir Ein Anderer Hitler
Speer im "Playboy", pages 318-329
1977 edition, Druffel-Verlag

Translated byWilhelm Kriessmann and Carolyn Yeager

In the Summer 1971 my son brought me from America a peculiar magazine: Playboy, June 1971, the great interview “Albert Speer—Hitler’s closest confidant and second in command.”1 That interview in the sensationally edited magazine is accompanied by ill-reputed and illustrated jokes and by naked, boasting 'girls'. The answers given by the great ethicist and titan of repentance to the smartly questioning reporter, Eric Norden, in the multimillion-read magazine, are unique and way-out, and contain such wicked passages that they become unbelievable even at dimensions preferred by Speer.

The Cambridge Five left to right: Anthony Blunt, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Harold "Kim" Philby, John Cairncross

Five privileged young men of the British establishment are successfully recruited in the early 1930's while at Trinity College, Cambridge to seek careers in the Foreign Office and Military Intelligence for the purpose of passing sensitive information to Stalin's Soviet Union. Some highlights:

  • In the "misfit" category: two were homosexual, two (maybe three) were alcoholic, only two lived as married men;
  • They all remained productive on through the "Cold War" with Philby lasting the longest, until 1963;
  • Anthony Blunt, who was not as active, was outed in 1963 and confessed the following year, himself outing several others, for which he avoided prosecution;
  • British military intelligence did not want to advertise their weaknesses to the public, which benefitted Blunt and Cairncross;
  • Cairncross was able to pass decrypted commnication of the German High Command about the crucial battle of Kursk;
  • Philby was the most valuable of the five to the Soviet Union, but in the end he was not named a Hero of the SU, as Sorge was, only his image placed on a postage stamp. He died disappointed in the proletariat paradise.

Saturday Afternoon: Julius Evola and the Myth of Spiritual Race

July 12,2014

Carolyn discusses Racial Nationalism in the context of “Blood and Soil” vs the confused ideas coming from Julius Evola that spirit, rather than ethnic substance, determines culture, and that there is such a thing as a “race of the spirit.” Some highlights from this program:

  • Evola was a homosexual, a traditionalist and an elitist who never joined the Italian National Fascist Party;
  • In his youth, he was attracted to avant-gard art, literature, philosophy and he became a prominent representative of the anti-art "Dada" movement in Italy;
  • His later thinking was more in line with with Fascism than National-Socialism, but he was critical of both;
  • Evola wrote a great deal on "the metaphysics of sex" in which he held neither romantic love or procreation to be a worthwhile or "noble" purpose;
  • Evola believed our world and societies were "devolving" from a high state rather than "evolving" toward a higher state;
  • Evola saw rationalism, the Enlightment and science as inferior to ancient "heroic" myths which he recommended as the best role models;
  • Carolyn thinks Evola is way over-rated and causes more harm than good - that he should be dropped from the WN curriculum.

Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill face to face for the first time in 1941. Hitler despised them both.

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Jan. 5th-7th, 1942 dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by trusted aide, attorney Heinrich Heim. Some highlights of this episode:

  • Japan and the Jews, the stupid Americans, the Spanish soldier;
  • Stalin identifies with the Tsars and Pan-Slavism more than Boshevism - Slavs and Asians can copy but not invent;
  • Corruption in Freemasonry, fictitious wealth of gold, guilt of Jews;
  • Changes at Rome, Hitler removes Brauchitsch as Army chief;
  • Churchill's faults, the decline of England, the decay of America.
