ISN'T IT TIME TO EITHER PUT UP OR SHUT UP? If historians and the media are going to keep throwing around the 6,000,000 number, shouldn't they have presented some proof for it by now? Instead, the 'proof' marker has gone in the other direction – against anything close to such a number.


Right: Sybille Steinbacher has been appointed by Goethe University and the Fritz Bauer Institute in Frankfurt to Germany's first endowed chair for Holocaust Studies,


The Hill is a purveyor of propaganda, not news

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2017-05-14 16:05

 

Should The Hill be running articles featuring hate-speech from questionable characters like Chabad Lubavitch rebbe Shmuley Boteach (above)? When is enough enough?


By Carolyn Yeager

THE HILL IS A LONGTIME WASHINGTON FIXTURE WHICH FIRST APPEARED AS A NEWSPAPER in 1994, published by Jerry Finkelstein, now owned by his son Jimmy Finkelstein.  Now online as well as in print, it has specialized in reporting about the doings of Congress.

Having updated its style a few times, The Hill's current control by Zionist forces has become clear as day. This is nothing out of the ordinary for the American news media, of course, but for some reason I had naively thought of The Hill as more independent. Not so, The definite anti-Trump slant has just been too obvious since Trump was actually elected as president.

AfD stays the course amid Petry-Pretzell “realpolitic” split

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2017-04-23 13:29

Germany's anti-immigrant AfD party has picked nationalist Alexander Gauland (left) and economist Alice Weidel as its top candidates for Germany's federal election. Notably missing is Frauke Petry.


By Carolyn Yeager

FAR FEWER DEMONSTRATORS AGAINST THE AFD PARTY CONGRESS' 2-day meeting in Cologne actually showed up than the 50,000 claimed to be expected. Only 8 to 10,000 filled the streets, which were easily controlled by the 4,000 well-prepared police on hand, even though two police officers were injured and a police car was set ablaze before things calmed down. Hateful comments from Church leaders brought push back from AfD co-chairman Frauke Petry in her speech on Saturday against their "ugly, deprecating and polarizing remarks." (See more on that below)

Thilo Sarrazin's latest book "Wishful Thinking" another best seller

HERE IS AN INTERVIEW PUBLISHED ON APRIL 9, 2017 at The European.de. It's gone through Google Translate, with a small amount of further editing from me, but it's quite readable. -cy

      ________________________________________________________

Thilo Sarrazin is one who, for many people, talks about what's really going on in our society. The reactions to Thilo Sarrazin's statements in his books on refugees, immigrants and his criticism of Islam show that we live in a divided society. He is dominant in the media after every book publication beyond that of hardly any other author. He is a guarantor for headlines that sell well. With NITRO [sorry, I don't know what the letters stand for -cy], Thilo Sarrazin spoke about his books, Islamic criticism, immigration and refugees, and "hard-hitting censorship" in the media.

Failed prosecution brings charge against judge in Nazi trial

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2017-04-11 15:40

95-year-old Hubert Zafke sits in a Newbrandenburg court with his lawyer Peter-Michael Diestel standing beside him.


By Carolyn Yeager

A JUDGE IN NEUBRANDENBURG IN GERMANY'S NORTHEAST IS ACCUSED of perverting the course of justice in one of the last Auschwitz trials brought by “holocaust survivors.” The charge has been brought by Jewish lawyer Thomas Walther, representing Walter Plywaski, 87, against Judge Klaus Kabisch. The lawyer for the accused former SS medic, 95 year-old Hubert Zafke, has defended the court's right to interpret the law as it sees fit, dismissing Walther's "media-friendly" criminal charges against Kabisch as a "provincial farce."

The prosecution's story goes that Walter and William Plywaski, aged 87 and 86, were brought to Auschwitz from Lodz, Poland, along with their parents on August 15, 1944. While they and their father survived, their mother was murdered in a gas chamber on the same day.

The 'Nazis' did not burn books - that is more fake history

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2017-03-15 12:21

By Carolyn Yeager

NAME ME ONE SINGLE INSTANCE WHEN THE 'NAZIS' - properly known as the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) - publicly, or privately, burned books.

You can't - because there is none.

Yet a letter from 'Walter' to Jeff Bezos has been circulating, in which he makes he following statement:

What would happen if other companies followed your lead? Where would it all end? Burning books like during the Nazi years?

Walter means well, but he is very much mistaken. I have seen similar sentiments in connection with Amazon's blacklisting of Holocaust Revisionist books, so I am setting the record straight. The one-time book-burning that did take place in 1933 was done by university students, not the NSDAP.

Björn Höcke apologizes for Holocaust speech; Compact interviews Andreas Wild

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2017-02-18 17:41

L to R: Andreas Wild, Björn Höcke, Hans-Joachim Berg of the Alternative fur Deutschland party in Thuringia.


by Carolyn Yeager

DISAPPOINTINGLY (BUT FOR THE SAKE OF PARTY HEALING OBVIOUSLY), the leader of the AfD in Thuringia state took a step back and, while speaking at a state party meeting today (Saturday) in Arnstadt announced, “"I took a big, important topic and unfortunately turned it into beer hall talk. That was a mistake. For that, I would like to apologize here."

He was referring to a speech in Dresden on January 17 in which he correctly described the grotesque Berlin Holocaust memorial as a “monument to shame” and said Germans should instead be encouraged to look forward to a proud future, not always back to a past of only 12 years length. Those words were well-received by the AfD youth organization to which he was speaking, but naturally brought loud criticism from the center and left political parties and establishment Jews.

Frauke Petry sues Compact magazine over report she instigated Höcke expulsion

AfD party chairman Frauke Petry


By Carolyn Yeager

CALLED A SCANDAL by Compact, the AfD party chairman has turned to legal means to stop the magazine from using this sentence I quoted in a prior post:

"The decision fell with 9: 4 votes at the request of Frauke Petry."

The sentence refers to the party's federal executive committee's termination procedure against Björn Höcke just a few days ago. Petry's attorney is asking for damages of 20,000 euros, as best I can determine.

Compact, self-described as the “strongest opposition newspaper in the country,” says they will not retract the statement and they consider the demand an “indecent interference in the freedom of our reporting and commenting.”

On anniversary of Dresden terror-bombing, “Holocaust” divisiveness rears it's ugly head

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2017-02-13 12:49

Björn Höcke, AfD state party leader for Thuringia.


JUST TODAY, FEBRUARY 13TH, THE LEADERSHIP OF THE NATIONAL ALTERNATIVE FUR DEUTSCHLAND (AfD) in Berlin announced its decision to expel Thuringia state party leader Björn Höcke from the party. In order to move forward, however, it requires a vote in favor by an arbitration committee of the AfD in Thuringia, which is expected to take some time

In Erfurt, Thuringia's capital, Höcke released a statement: "It is with deep worry about the unity of the party that I learned of the decision of the federal governing board,” saying he awaited the decision of the state arbitration panel “calmly.”

According to Compact Online:

The decision fell by 9: 4 votes at the request of National leader Frauke Petry. The four contenders [against removal] came from Andre Poggenburg, Alexander Gauland, Jörg Meuthen and Armin-Paul Hampel. Compact magazine opines:

the regional associations in the East will not allow the exclusion of one of their most successful politicians [Höcke]. Frauke Petry has to fear that she will be overthrown in her own Saxon state association in Saxony at the beginning of March.

Federal hostage Beate Zschäpe testifies in court

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2016-09-29 12:19

Beate Zschape in court Thursday with the lawyer she switched to when she insisted on telling her side, preparing to read a statement.


AFTER REMAINING SILENT SINCE HER TRIAL BEGAN IN 2013 – except for a statement read by her attorney last year in which she admitted guilt for her two friends Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Böhnhardt – 41-year-old Zschäpe read a short statement in court on Thursday.

She said that after the German reunification in 1990, she “identified with nationalist ideology.” But now she has changed, she said, and today: "I judge people not by their origin and political affiliation but by their behavior."

She added, “I regret my own misconduct. I condemn what Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Böhnhardt did to the victims."
