Polish President signs bill to criminalize any hint of guilt directed at Poland

WE KNOW THE ENTIRE HOLOCAUST OF THE JEWS is a highly exaggerated narrative that has been perpetrated by the victors of World War 2 with the purpose of covering themselves with virtue by portraying the Third Reich as the most evil force the world has ever known.

This is good work if you can get away with it. All the nations in the world that originally became the United Nations support this narrative 100%. Poland, by refusing to cooperate in 1939 with their neighbor Germany, led by Adolf Hitler, became the early victim of the Soviet Union. The Poles remained under Soviet domination from 1945 until 1990 – 45 years!

They believe they are right up there with the Jews when it comes to victim status. They're trying to cash in on this for their country as successfully as the Jews have done with Israel.

THE SUCCESSOR TO PM BEATA SZYDLO,  close associate of Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the ruling national-conservative, Christian-democratic PiS party in Poland, has been identified as a half-Jew.

Mateusz Morawiecki was Finance Minister and a former bank chairman in the Santander Group. He was not even a member of Kaczynski's party two years ago, but joined the government as minister for economic development in 2015. His Jewish roots were known in Poland since he spoke about it earlier this year at a ceremony at the Warsaw Zoo.

Poland moves forward with refocusing history on Polish heroism and victimhood

The Museum of Second World War in Gdansk, Poland which opened on March 23, 2017 in the midst of controversy.


By Carolyn Yeager

POLAND IS MERGING TWO MUSEUMS OF HISTORY INTO ONE – the newly opened World War II Museum in Gdansk with another yet-to-be-established state-sanctioned institution that, when it opens, will be focused solely on Polish heroism during the Nazi occupation of Poland.

The current culture minister under the ruling Law and Justice Party, Piotr Glinski, has been pushing for a merger with a museum that currently exists only on paper, and is dedicated to the Battle of Westerplatte. In November 2016, the New York Times quoted Glinski saying that focusing on the September 1939 battle would better represent “heroic Polish self-defense,” and that the museum in the works failed to put “enough stress on the Polish point of view.”

A Polish Catholic denies Hitler's religiosity with false 'facts'

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-12-25 17:07

Danusha V. Goska identifies herself as a Polish Catholic writer who wants to dispell negative  stereotypes about Poles.


By Carolyn Yeager

FRIDAY IN MY INBOX I FOUND A FORWARDED ARTICLE by a certain Danusha Goska from a site I never look at, the 'progressive' pro-Israel website Front Page Mag. It was titled “Hitler's Religion,” so I began to read it. Long and tedious as it was, I was losing interest until I got near the end to the paragraphs I've reproduced below.

The article was based on a new book by Richard Weikart, Hitler's Religion: The Twisted Beliefs that Drove the Third Reich. Goska writes that “Weikart makes the case that Hitler's God was a Darwin-inspired, non-personal, pantheistic deity exacting a pitiless survival-of-the-fittest-through-struggle morality.” Weikart (and Goska) wants to kill the idea that Hitler and National-Socialist Germany were ever, in any way, Christian - thus that any of his policies could have had a Christian basis. The idea is to refute the more common historical opinion that German Christians perverted or set aside their native Christian beliefs in order to participate in National-Socialism, up to and including the horrors of the “holocaust.”

Colorful National Unity Day in Ukraine brings joy

It made me happy to see this story in the news reports this morning. I am always attracted to the kind of designs on clothing that are associated with Ukraine folk art. I think President Poroshenko looks handsome in his brightly colored embroidered shirt worn with a modern business suit. (below right) We should see more nationalist dress being worn by Europeans. 

In Ukraine it is not a problem, but in Germany it would be a big problem. Dressing in your national costume conveys that you are a nationalist, or you may have nationalistic feelings, and that is verboten for Germans. In Austria it can now be done  because, as a separate nation, Austria can celebrate itself. Germans cannot, mainly because it would offend Jews. I don't think the large number of Turks there would even care if Germans wore their national costume, but the Jews care.

Martin Bormann said of Ukrainian children: "They are fair, with blue eyes, bonny and chubby-faced. In comparison, our children look like tottering little chicks." And of the adults: "They are bursting with good health." This photograph is from 1942.


Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the July 17-22, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide Henry Picker. 1h24m. Included in this episode:

  • Goebbels failed to introduce wired-wireless radio control in Germany before the war to prevent foreign broadcasts;
  • Roads are superior to railroads for unification--Hitler wants to create a network of autobahen from Berlin to the East Wall;
  • Hitler agrees to an interview with a foreign journalist so he can respond to the persistent talk of a Second Front, i.e. Allied landing;
  • Discussion of "seaman's yarns" and need to consider superstitions of the public when making decisions;
  • The Channel Islands and how they could be used after the war;
  • Hitler criticises lawyers again and makes some very good points
  • Russia's strength and the Stakhanov system--Bormann tells of his tour of Ukraine;
  • More on how to treat the local populations in the occupied territories (see Ukraine images here).

The edition of Hitler's Table Talk being used was translated by Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens, published by Enigma Books, New York, and can be found as a pdf here.

Russia and Poland feud over who liberated Auschwitz

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-01-23 09:15

Are the Russians accusing Poland of "holocaust denial?"

Just a few days before the Jan. 27th commemoration billed as the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of the World War II Auschwitz-Birkenau internment camps in Poland, top Russian and Polish officials are trading angry charges over "who liberated Auschwitz."

It began over the Russian's complaint that President Putin was not invited in a way that properly honored his majesty's exalted position as representing the Soviet Union's glorious "Red Army Liberators." A Polish diplomat, in turn, said Putin made a decision not to attend, and anyway it was the Ukrainians who liberated Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 1945.

It's very LOL, with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov  accusing Poland's Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna (pictured above right) of "sacrilege." Remember we're dealing with a religion here, so passions do flare as articles of faith are questioned or denied.

This is casting a pall over this year's ceremonies, which have been planned to be the biggest ever at the former camp. Read the full story [fourth item down] on this page at http://jan27.org.

Thousands of Nationalists march in Kiev

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2015-01-02 01:19

New Year's Eve march to honour the 106th birthday of second world war revolutionary fighter Stepan Bandera, who Russian President Vladimir Putin has called " Hitler's accomplice”

Thousands of Ukrainian nationalists held a torchlight procession across Kiev on Thursday in honour of a 1940s anti-Soviet insurgent branded by Moscow as a Nazi collaborator whom Europe must reject.

The march on what would have been Stepan Bandera’s 106th birthday moved along the same streets on which hundreds of thousands rallied for three months last winter before ousting a Moscow-backed president.

Some wore second world war-era army uniforms while others draped themselves in the red and black nationalist flags and chanted “Ukraine belongs to Ukrainians” and “Bandera will return and restore order”.

“The Kremlin is afraid of Bandera because he symbolises the very idea of a completely independent Ukraine,” Lidia Ushiy said while holding up a portrait of the far-right icon at the head of the march.

Seventeen coffins arrive in far Eastern Russian city

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2014-12-03 00:21

A woman collapses over one of the 17 zinc coffins that arrived last week in the far Eastern Russian city of Ussuriysk marked as "Cargo 200".

The local population of the city of Ussuriysk is expressing shock at the large number of coffins containing the remains of Russian soldiers who died in the Donbas fighting.

Despite all the efforts of Russian officials to keep the funerals and information about where these men met their deaths from becoming known, a former Russian soldier said by telephone from Ussuriysk that it appears they were professional soldiers ("kontrakniki") from the 14th brigade of the GRU Special Forces of the Russian General Staff.

In September, people in the city learned that about 500 members of that brigade had been flown to Rostov oblast, as it's said "to the West." Until June 2012, this brigade was based in Ussuriysk, a city of 167,000, before it moved to the larger city of Khabarovsk.

According to this source, these men being buried now met their deaths in one of the battles for the Donetsk airport, thousands of miles away.

Update on 73-year old Lyudmila Bogantenkova who was arrested on Friday, Oct. 17 in Stavropol:

She remains in jail, a month and a half later, charged with "fraud" and "failing to repay a debt." Both charges are connected with her efforts to find out about Russian combat losses in Ukraine and to commuicate this to others. She is well-known as the president of the Prikumya Mothers of Soldiers Committee that seeks to protect soldiers from inhumane treatment, including torture [extreme "hazing"] of new conscripts.
