“The Fatherland” weekly covered The Great War in Europe from a German-American perspective

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-12-07 12:57

Very first issue of The Fatherland weekly dated August 10, 1914 appeared immediately after war "broke out" on July 28th following the assasination of the Austrian Crown Prince exactly one month earlier.

SINCE GEORGE SYLVESTER VIERECK CAME TO MY ATTENTION, I haven't been able to get enough of him. Being especially intrigued by his publication THE FATHERLAND, you can imagine my delight upon finding a website with every issue available for reading. Credit for this goes to Pensylvania's Villanova University and the 'digital library' project of its Falvey Memorial Library. Pennsylvania has thankfully not forgotten to recognize its large ethnic German population—the 2000 US Census reports it at over 3 million, the highest total number of any U.S. state outside of California. [The highest in percent of population is North Dakota. My home state of Illinois is way down in 17th place, yet because of greater overall population still numbered almost 2.5 million Germans in the 2000 census, higher than Wisconsin's 2.2 million, though Wisconsin stands in 2nd place on the list.]

First World War ended 100 years ago with an atrociously false and unfair peace

Artist's depiction of the World War I armistice signing in the rail car at Compiegne: Germany's Matthias Erzberger (center, standing) and France's Marshal Ferdinand Foch (at right, standing) negotiate what is now called in fake history the German capitulation.


By Carolyn Yeager

ON THE 11TH DAY OF THE 11TH MONTH OF NOVEMBER 1918, a German government delegation led by Mathias Erzberger crossed into France and signed a cease-fire at the 11th hour in the presence of Marshall Ferdinand Foch and other French and British military commanders. Yet this is now called by official historians a German surrender.

Germany never intended to surrender militarily, but between this date and 28 June, 1919 when a peace treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Versailles palace outside Paris, the United States, Britain, France and Italy colluded in separating Germany from her allies, bullying and blockading (starving) her into accepting unacceptable conditions of peace. They did the same with Austria and Hungary, in separate treaties.

President Trump led in rejecting UN Global Migration Pact—Hungary and now Austria follow

Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz (left) and vice-chancellor HC Strache announce they are following in the footsteps of leaders from the United States and Hungary by a decision not to sign the UN Migration Compact in December.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE UN MIGRATION COMPACT FOR SAFE, ORDERLY AND REGULAR MIGRATION was approved in July by all 193 UN members except the United States. Later Victor Orban of Hungary said he would not sign the final document, which signing ceremony is to take place in Marrakesh, Morocco in December. Now Sebastian Kurz, chancellor of Austria, has announced that his country has decided not to sign it and will not send a representative to Morocco for the event. Poland is also indicating that it will probably decide the same. [Update: https://www.dw.com/en/merkel-meets-polish-pm-as-he-threatens-withdrawal-from-un-migration-pact/a-46135819]

The compact, which calls mass migration “inevitable, necessary, and desirable,” is made up of 23 goals, some of which definitely infringe upon the sovereignty of first world nations. Austria, in making its Oct. 31 announcement said that 17 of those goals are unacceptable to its government, led by Kurz's conservative Peoples Party in coalition with vice-chancellor Hans-Christian Strache's populist Freedom Party.

Adolf Hitler on 'Anti-Semitism On a Religious Basis'

Continuing with passages from Mein Kampf, 2017 Thomas Dalton translation. See here.

P 249  3.27  ANTI-SEMITISM ON A RELIGIOUS BASIS

THE FAILURE OF [THE CHRISTIAN-SOCIALIST] PARTY to fulfill its dream of saving Austria from dissolution must be attributed to two main defects in the means they employed and also the lack of clarity regarding the goal itself.

First: The anti-Semitism of the new movement was based on religious instead of racial principles. The reason for this mistake gave rise to the second error also.

Adolf Hitler on 'Defects in our Educational System' and 'Concentration on a Single Enemy'

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2018-04-30 15:55

Continuing with passages from Mein Kampf, 2017 Thomas Dalton translation. See here.

Page 233 3.24 DEFECTS IN OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM

Such conduct is not the result of a malicious intent, nor is it the outcome of orders given from 'above'; but such a lack of national determination is due to defects in our educational system. Instead of inculcating a lively sense of German nationality, the aim of the educational system is to make the youth submit to 'the idea' become idol.

Education in such abstract notions as 'democracy,' 'international socialism,' 'pacifism,' etc., is so hard and fast and exclusive, and so purely subjective, that they fundamentally influence one's picture of the world. But on the other hand, the attitude towards their own German nationality has been very objective from youth upwards. The pacifist (insofar as he is a German) who surrenders himself subjectively to the dictates of dogmatic principles will always first consider the objective right or wrong of a situation when danger threatens. But he will never take his stand in the ranks of his own people, and fight for them from the sheer instinct of self preservation.

Austrian Minister of Infrastructure gets extreme hate mail - a new phenomenon

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2018-02-05 11:59

THE LIKEABLE AND MILD-MANNERED NORBERT HOFER, WHO CAME CLOSE TO WINNING AUSTRIA'S PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION as a member of the Freedom Party (FPOe) in 2016 and was chosen by the new OVP-FPOe coalition government as Minister of Infrastructure, has received death threats on Social Media, and also in his official government e-mail account. This is somewhat unprecedented in Austria.

Here is the e-mail in question (translated into English):

"Nice to install your Nazi chicks at the ÖBB [Austrian rail system].

And I have to work for Nazis now. Your dirty right-hand rat. Have you already planned the transports to the camps?

The day will come when you will hang.

You lousy Nazi rat. You incest child."

The reactionaries arise: Sign an 'open letter' urging boycott of Austria's FPÖ cabinet members

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2017-12-29 00:40

Herbert Kickl, talented former FPOe party chairman, is the new Home Secretary (Minister of the Interior) in Sebastian Kurz's Austrian coalition government.


By Carolyn Yeager

FOLLOWING PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU'S ANNOUNCEMENT on Dec. 18, 2017 that Israel's Foreign Office would instruct it's ministers to work only with lower-ranking officials from the Austrian ministries now headed by members of the FPÖ party, some far-left reactionaries and Jews have released an Open Letter also calling for a partial boycott of Austria's new cabinet.

Ho hum, I guess they felt someone needed to do something. None of the signers are currently in government, so it's just a headline they're trying to get. It appears there are only seven signers (or maybe sponsors): former French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner (Jew, pictured at right) and anti-racist Benjamin Abtan of AGEM; Leftist Jose Ramos-Horta (Nobel Peace Prize winner from East Timor; former Spanish foreign minister Socialist Miguel-Angel Moratinos, former Canadian PM Kim Campbell, and those tired old Nazi-Hunters Beate and Serge Klarsfeld.

Mean leftist teachers rob 4-year-olds of innocent belief in Santa

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-12-06 23:01

Sad little Markus after being told by teachers in his kindergarten that St. Nicholas was dead. His mother holds the Christmas ornament of St. Nic that no longer brings him cheer.


As reported by the Kronen Zeitung -

'MUMMY, YOU KNOW THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS SANTA CLAUS, he's been dead for over 100 years." In tears, four-year old Markus told his mother what he had heard from teachers in his Linz (Austria) kindergarten.

"An effrontery, how children's illusions are taken without informing us parents," said his mother, Nadine. She is angry about the actions of those responsible.

In Austria there has been discussion of whether the figure of Nicholas, with or without a white beard, should come to schoolchildren. Now this Linz kindergarten in the residential area of Gugl has caused a scandal. "My son was told that Nicholas does not exist, that he died more than 100 years ago," his mother angrily told the Krone newspaper.

Carolyn on John Friend's Realist Report again

Six of the 26 Orthodox Jews arrested for substantial welfare fraud during the June-July sweep by the New Jersey Ocean County prosecutor's office. Don't you think these people should be in Israel?


ON SUNDAY, OCT. 22, I HAD THE PLEASURE of speaking with John Friend again on his Realist Report podcast. We discussed the situation in Lakewood, New Jersey (see my posts for Oct. 19 and Oct. 21 on this page) and how it is a prime example of the way Orthodox Jews living in White democratic societies subsidize their traditional life of male religious study by cheating our generous welfare programs.

The recent elections in Germany and Austria came up for some explanation as to how they are adding momentum to the political move toward the right and anti-immigration in Europe. We also had a lively conversation about Richard Spencer's latest appearance at the University of Florida and the "Alt-Right" in general. From there, we moved to Mark Weber (who declined to be a guest on John's podcast) and to Kevin MacDonald. So much to say,  so little time. But I think it is a good program and hope you will listen. 1h17m

Austria moves right in Sunday's general election

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2017-10-15 16:09

Election night party taking place at the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) headquarters in Vienna on Sunday, Oct. 15. Heinz-Christian Strache's party will be in either 2nd or a strong third place once the final tally is completed, sometime after tomorrow, Monday, Oct. 16.


By Carolyn Yeager

UPDATE: Final vote results: ÖVP - 31.5%=62 parliamentary seats. SPÖ - 26.9%=52 seats.  FPÖ - 26.0% =51 seats. NEOS - 5.3%= 10 seats. PILZ - 4.4%= 8 seats.


SUNDAY'S VOTE IN AUSTRIA TURNED OUT WELL for the populist, anti-immigrant Freedom Party (FPÖ), even if not as great as we might have hoped. Hans-Christian Strache's party has just pulled ahead of the  Social Democratic party (SPÖ) for the first time. The People's Party (ÖVP) has won with around 31% of the vote.

The FPÖ is now almost a point ahead of the SPÖ, although this may change by mid-week when all the "postal" ballots (mail-in) are counted. They sometimes tend to favor the SPÖ. Here is an active page with charts and maps showing who voted for whom. At this time, it's showing Sebastion Kurz' People's Party with 31.4% of the vote, the Social Democrats (currently in power) with 26.7, and the Freedom Party with 27.4%.
