Seventy-five years ago, on Nov. 30, 1939, the Soviet Union invaded Finland, thinking it could overwhelm a much smaller country by its size. But the Soviets were in for a surprise. What lessons does this short but brutal war have for us today? Included are:

  • Molotov-Ribbentrop pact and secret protocol;
  • How intelligence and motivation aided the Finns;
  • Losses -26,000 Finnish dead or missing vs 127,000 Soviet Russian dead or missing;
  • Can the Ukrainians hold off the Russians as well as the Finns did?

Plus, a closer look at Ukrainian nationalist leader Stepan Bandera and his arrest and incarceration at Sachsenhausen near Berlin. Included :

  • Bandera's fanatical movement veered away from sharing the same objectives as N-S Germany;
  • Bandera's death in 1959 ordered by the KGB head Alexander Shelepin and Nikita Khrushchev;
  • Ukrainian nationalists have been the most persevering of all, and most hated by the Russians. [1hr51min]

YOU have to choose. There is no way to pretend any longer that these two men represent anything similar in the way of a world-view or a future for the White Western people and the civilization they alone created. Look at the shape of the faces; compare the chin and the eyes. Putin's eyes are very close together and coldly calculating compared to Hitler's honest gaze. Putin has also had complete "face-lift" surgery and Botox injections in this picture; Hitler had neither, ever.

The anti-racist activist Vladimir Putin is continually working behind-the-scenes to install the Soviet-Globalist-Jewish-Nuremburg Tribunal's 20th Century 'historical' narrative concerning Germany's Third Reich as legally-mandated truth and reality in all corners of the world.

This insidious, invidious campaign continues to radiate from the Kremlin, under the direction of President Putin, who at the same time  is using Adolf Hitler's successes in 1936-1940 as a blueprint for his own actions in "claiming-reclaiming" neighboring territories that were once under Soviet control, though not historically Russian.

Adolf Hitler, at the left, at his Wehrwolf headquarters near Vinnytsia, Ukraine in 1942 or 43.

Ukrainians and their relationships with their neighbors through the centuries. How did Ukraine become a Slavic nation? Just how much of a role did Hitler play in the sufferings of Ukrainians in 1941-44?

  • The Goths, the Huns and the Khazars all settled in the area at different times;
  • The Varangians (Scandinavians) arrived around 880 and created the most powerful state in Europe: Kievan Rus;
  • It was devastated by a 13th Century Mongol invasion and eventually succeeded by the state of Galicia-Volhynia;
  • Lithuanians and Poles controlled vast estates in Ukraine, the Cossacks led an uprising and Russians moved into the Crimea;
  • Hitler reunites Eastern Galicia and Volhynia with Ukraine;
  • What led to the violent ethnic cleansing between Poles and Ukrainians in Volhynia in 1943;
  • Why the spirit of extreme nationalism contradicted the concept of the Slavic nations and National Socialist Germany fighting the Soviets together.

See that inverted triangle in the center? That is a beautiful example of the kind of Ukrainian floral/fruit design that I like so much. I believe such folk art developed from the importance to them of the fertility of the earth, which Ukraine definitely represents. Enlarge

The tendency of the Czechs to invent a history for themselves that is far grander than what actually took place is similar to what we've already learned about Polish "history." The number of Czechs in Czecho-Slovakia was only 7 million, yet they wanted to be a great, ruling European nation-state. However, they still today claim the German city of Prague (pictured right). Included in this program:

  • The Paris Peace Treaties forcibly annexed German, Hungarian, Ukrainian and Polish territories to a Czech core, forming CzechoSlovakia;
  • The majority Czechs took a criminal and genocidal attitude toward the minorities;
  • It took 18 painful years for the situation to gain the serious attention of the European Powers who had created the mess in the first place;
  • Adolf Hitler finally broke through the dilly-dallying with the Munich Agreement in 1938;
  • Post-WW2 history give a slanted picture of the end of this illegitimate state to make Hitler out to be an aggressor, rather than a savior and restorer.

Poland – the Great Pretender. The truth about its origins and history tear away the pious mask of the victim and show a cruel-minded victimizer at work – still today. Carolyn Yeager explains why the treatment meted out to the Poles by National-Socialist Germany was justified. 2hr53min.

  • Was the "1000 years" of Polish history invented in more recent times;
  • The late appearance of Polish literature and written language, in the 18th and 19th centuries;
  • One million of the original  2.5 million Germans left the provence of Poland before 1939 because of persecution;
  • The most extreme brutality was directed against the Ukrainians because they were the largest minority group and voted to send their own representatives to the Sejm;
  • Poles had never succeeded in forming a successful state on their own, for example in 1916 Germany gave them independence and made a pact with Pilsudski;
  • Poles insisted most of all that all minorities speak Polish, send their children to Polish-only schools and become totally Polonized;
  • Many examples given of horrible treatment of Ukrainians, Germans and White Russians mainly to discourage them from maintaining their own communities and language;
  • Markus calls in and gives valuable input, plus helps me sum up at the end.

Hitler meets with Polish Foreign Minister Josef Beck in 1937. Beck was a chain smoker and Hitler, who mostly refused to allow smoking in his presence, made an exception for Beck but doesn't seem too happy about it.

Carolyn continues from last week, answering accusations that Hitler hated Slavs and his anti-Slav policies caused Germany to lose the war. 2hr30m.

  • Polish car-stealing gangs operate in Frankfurt am der Oder in Brandenburg State by just crossing the river because of EU Schengen laws;
  • Using quotes from Mein Kampf as representing Hitler's policies in 1939 is absurd, yet most Hitler detractors do it;
  • Persecution of ethnic Germans trapped in Poland and Czechoslovakia is recorded in online reading at Wintersonnenwende archive;
  • Hitler speaks of his invasions of both Poland and Soviet Union as due to forces beyond his control;
  • Serbia's role in WWI revisited - assassinated Austrian Archduke and wife under orders from Russia, helped along and encouraged by France;
  • Austrian Emperor was not unreasonable for wanting some punishment for and restraint in Serbia;
  • Serbia's long history of failure and frustration of nationalist goals, and warring behavior with it's neighbors;
  • EU member states should be classified into an order something like A, B and C groups, and any new European Order should too;
  • Did Hitler have a hatred of Serbia because of 1914?

Carolyn Yeager responds to Wolf Wall Street's request that she "resolve this question (the Slav Question) herself" by addressing the issue head-on. In the second hour, a call from Markus added much of interest to the program, and toward the end of the 2nd hour Wolf Wall Street (Bob) also called and we had a 3-way discussion. 2hr19min. Subjects included:

  • Slavic is a language group covering a large area of Eastern Europe;
  • Paul Goble reports on the inventions about history currently being propagated in Russia apparently with govt. approval;
  • Connection between Serbia and Russia, and their important role in instigating WWI;
  • How do Whites deal with the differences between themselves in order to remain something of a cohesive group with trust between them;
  • How to order a White society.

100 years ago: A German "triple triumph" established U-boat warfare

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2014-09-21 21:55

"Victories of U-9" - a contemporary German postcard showing the photo of Weddigen against the background of the sinking "Aboukir" and "Hogue".

On September 22, 1914 Lieutenant Otto Weddigen sunk three British armored cruisers. He was the first war hero for Germany.

A mere 600 tons of water was displaced when the Imperial U-boat "SMS U9" was immersed. Only 60 meters long, the boat had a driving force of about 1000 hp – not particularly strong. Although only four years old in September 1914, it was already outdated because it had petrol instead of more powerful diesel engines to power itself over water.

The three Goliaths the "U9" sighted in the early morning of September 22, 1914 were even older, but each was 144 meters long, with 12,000 tons displacement, 23.3-inch guns and 760-man crews,

Not the latest battleships of the British Home Fleet and the German High Seas Fleet, certainly—but each of these ironclads was deadly dangerous for a single small submarine anyway. Unless several special circumstances came together. That was the case on this Tuesday.
