FAKE HISTORY IN THE MAKING. The 100TH Anniversary of the UK's Balfour Declaration is coming up in November this year.

The Zionists have put up a web site celebratebalfour.org which looks similar in layout to the World Jewish Congress web site. However, it's copyrighted to The Israel Forever Foundation. Conservative UK Prime Minister Theresa May has pledged her government will celebrate the occasion with “remarkable, tolerant” Israel and Jews worldwide.

Britain's Conservative Party has a group called the “Conservative Friends of Israel” (similar to the US Republican Party's Friends of Israel group). In a speech to the CFI in December, May called the fateful letter written by Conservative foreign secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild in 1917 “one of the most important letters in history” which “demonstrates Britain's vital role in creating a homeland for the Jewish people.”

Nick Kollerstrom talks about his new book: "How Britain Initiated Both World Wars"

Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom talks with Carolyn about his latest book titled “How Britain Initiated Both World Wars.” The book began as a talk he gave, on two different nights, to a monthly meet group he belongs to in London, and it retains something of the conversational style. But the ideas it contains about who wanted war have been in Kollerstrom's mind for a much longer time. He said he was quite nervous about stating his ideas, especially  on World War II, to British people, and the fact that it was well-accepted by his group gave him the courage to publish it as a book.

The illustrated book is only 99 pages and the price only 4 quid (four English pounds) or $5 U.S. It's a bargain both in price and in the fact you get a good understanding of behind-the-scenes shennaigans without having to read 300 to 500 pages, or more. These wars were both tragedies that robbed Europe of it's self-confidence, as Nick explains in this podcast.

The book is available at Amazon. Nick's author page is here, where you can see the other books he's written. I did a previous show with Nick on his book Breaking the Spell. Visit his website at Terror on the Tube.

Jews object to Dutch textbook that says Britain endorsed Zionism in 1917 for favorable Jewish bankers' loans

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2015-09-15 19:06

Theme Workbook – The Middle East,” which is published by ThiemeMeulenhoff and intended for students attending pre-university secondary education — the highest scholastic track in the Dutch education system for minors — has been labeled “anti-Semitic” by a pro-Israel association in the Netherlands, Likoed Nederland, which is named after Israel's ruling party, Likud.

The history book (pictured right enlarge) reads, on page 23:

“The British government was in urgent need of money during World War I. […] Jewish bankers were prepared to offer favorable loan terms if the government made a gesture toward the Jewish People,”

How the Aspirin trademark was stolen from Germany at the Versailles Treaty

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2015-03-25 18:08

In 1898-99 German chemist Felix Hoffmann came across a recipe for a salicylic acid compound made by "French" chemist Charles Frederic Gerhardt (a German name).

Though the salicin from Willow Bark was known to relieve pain and reduce fever since it was isolated in the 1820's, it also upset the stomach. A few decades later, Gerhardt found that combining acetyl chloride with the salicylic acid made it less irritating. But he also decided it was too complex to make and dropped the idea.

Some years later, Hoffmann tested the recipe himself and found it worked. Already an employee of Bayer, he convinced the company to make the drug and name it Aspirin - from acetyl chloide and spiraea ulmaria, the plant salicylic acid comes from. First appearing as a powder, Bayer didn't release it in tablet form until 1915. [Image at right: bottle of Aspirin powder from 1899, from Bayer archives]

But after World War I Bayer was forced to give up the trademark as part of German war reparations! At the Treaty of Versailles, the trademark for Aspirin and for Heroin were given to France, Britain, Russia and the United States. 

That is how aspirin became a cheap drug and a generic name ... just to keep a German company from making millions off it.

The Heretics' Hour: Hitler and the Slavs, 3

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.

The Heretics' Hour: Hitler and the Slavs

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?

The Heretics' Hour: The Question of Leadership

Carolyn Yeager delves into the topic of leadership. What makes a leader and why don't we have one? Probably because a truly commanding leader is a rara avis who must have a number of outstanding qualities. Is Matt Hale the real thing? A close look at his legal briefs and lawsuits tells us quite a bit about him. 1hr59min. Highlights include:

  • U-Boat Commander Otto Weddigen and his "triple triumph" on Sept. 22, 1914;
  • The six necessary traits of a Leader, plus the intangible "Leadership Presence;"
  • Mathew Hale's life story and recent press releases reveal he has these traits to a marked degree;
  • Hale has protested his innocence from the beginning and the records bear it out;
  • Hale's legal rights as a prisoner have been largely denied him for 11 years of solitary confinement;
  • It's time for a widespread protest campaign in support of the Free Matt Hale movement because he is a leader we need.

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.
