ELIE WIESEL was physically put to rest five years ago on July 3, 2016. Now, the website “Elie Wiesel Cons The World” will be put to rest at the end of this year.

That website was instigated by me, and assisted in it's early days by the ever-helpful and much-missed Bradley Smith and his CODOH webmaster. I wanted to feature the phrase “Where's the tattoo?” taken from the extremely  popular 1980s Wendy's advertising campaign, “Where's the beef?” Delving into all aspects of Elie Wiesel became a major passion for me to which I devoted a great deal of my time. In the course of six years (2010-2016), I personally produced close to 130 articles, in the process of which I came to know more about Elie Wiesel than probably any living person outside of his family (and likely including them!).

Now, as I contemplate EWCTW becoming a non-active (read only) site—complete and total as is—I considered what I wanted visitors to see first when they hit on eliewieseltattoo.com. The answer was obvious—did we solve the riddle to Elie Wiesel's “missing tattoo?” Indeed we did, and it was what I had believed from the start—Wiesel did not have the number A-7713 tattooed on his left arm, and he never had it.

Something to believe in

Mark Milley, four-star general and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is the current face of the now openly apparent American malaise—exhibiting itself as lack of true leadership and purpose, along with chronic lying coming from the highest levels.

I'M AWARE IT'S BEEN OVER TWO MONTHS since I've posted anything in this space. I did make several beginnings with good intentions, but soon couldn't maintain the belief that it was purposeful enough to justify the effort involved. Each time, I concluded there was no good reason to continue, as it was either something those who read this site already know, or they won't or can't do anything about it anyway. IOW, what's the point?

But I thought it was high time I let you know I'm not ill or dead! I'm quite well, health-wise, and also very happy. So I've done my best to share what thoughts I have on our current situation below. I am, on the whole, remaining detached and am not worried.

New 'scholarly' French translation of Mein Kampf is two-thirds commentary, only one-third Hitler!

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2021-06-11 11:47

This is the cover of the new "Mein Kampf" translation put out by a committee of leftist French scholars. The main title means in English: 'To historicize evil' or ''put evil in historical context.' Does that sound kind of biased to you?


By Carolyn Yeager

A NEW FRENCH TRANSLATION OF MEIN KAMPF includes twice the amount of commentary, intended as “context,” as makes up the original text by Adolf Hitler! Yes, French publisher Fayard uses twice as many words to slam and slander Hitler as Hitler used in the totality of his lengthy two-part biography and political manifesto.

The Holocaust scam continues to be the #1 identity factor for American Jews

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2021-06-01 21:15

Considering the outsized role Jewish-Americans and Israel play in our national life, two or three 6-pointed, double triangle 'stars' scattered among the five-pointed stars on the American flag (as seen here) would be appropriate--and send the right message.


By Carolyn Yeager

ACCORDING TO THE LATEST PEW RESEARCH SURVEY of American Jews since 2013, the just-released “Jewish Identity in the United States 2020” survey, 76% of all U.S. Jews say that remembering the 'Holocaust' is essential to their Jewish identity. That is the highest of all reasons given, more than consider it as being a member of the Jewish religion – Judaism – which rated 72%.

In other words, more who identify as Jews think that 'Holocaust' remembrance (and corresponding belief) is the essential ingredient to their life as a Jew than is the Jewish religion itself!

Trailing that, 59% selected “working for justice and equality in society”, 56% “being intellectually curious”, with only 51% choosing “continuing family traditions.”

Leftist Blacks want to remake America in their own image—and this can't be

Sign of the times. Sign designating “George Floyd Square” – a several block area surrounding the intersection of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis – a sacred space for People of Color and detailing how White people must behave. See more here.


By Carolyn Yeager

IT CAN'T BE THAT AN ex-con, crime and drug addicted black man named George Floyd is made into a hero-martyr-saint for Euro-American white people in the country they settled and built. Negroes were brought to America as worker-slaves at a time when such things (and worse) were legally done everywhere. This doesn't mean those of us today must live under Negro rules and lowered standards to “make up for it.” Or pay off their decendents.

Closing arguments on Monday; what will the verdict be?

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2021-04-16 18:17

This widely seen image taken from a bystander video on May 25 is detrimental to the defense case to the point of assuring a conviction. It shows Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin with his knee placed on the neck of the previously struggling George Floyd even after Floyd was no longer resisting.


By Carolyn Yeager

BEFORE SEEING THE CLOSING ARGUMENTS, but after watching the entirety of the 13 days of courtroom testimony televised to the public, I am willing to offer my prediction of what this jury will do. I sat on one jury in my life, in a civil case. I know that the expectation to overcome differences and reach a final verdict is strong, and most jurors take that responsibility seriously. I've thought all along, and continue to think that the damning blow against Derek Chauvin is the video that shows all 9min25sec that George Floyd is pinned to the ground, even after he had ceased all resistance and apparently stopped breathing (shown in image above).

Blacks put police at risk by aiding and abetting crime in their neighborhoods

May 25, 2020, Cup Foods surveillance image: George Floyd stands at far right; five employees unoccupied behind the counter at left, with Christopher Martin closest to the front entrance in light gray-blue hoodie and black head scarf. Morries Hall, who entered the store with Floyd, is farthest front wearing red hat and white shirt.

The second week of the Derek Chauvin trial has now wrapped up.

Monday through Thursday was devoted to testimony from the Minneapolis police chief, plus a selection of department investigators and training personnel discussing the MPD's “use of force” policies and what are approved tactics; then on to medical technicians and trainers, forensic doctors and scientists, and an emergency medical doctor. All agreed that George Floyd had been kept in a prone position (laying on stomach) while handcuffed and held down for too long, and this either contributed to or caused his death.

Defense strategy in Chauvin murder trial emerges by end of first week

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2021-04-03 22:54


By Carolyn Yeager

ON DAY FOUR, I thought I saw the defense strategy revealing itself, and on day five it was very clear to me. It's exactly as attorney Eric Nelson told the jury in his opening statement—that the law will instruct them to find the defendant “not guilty” if they have “reasonable doubt” that his actions were a culpable contributing factor in George Floyd's death.

That is, each juror must be convinced “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the treatment of Floyd by Chauvin was a substantial cause of unnecessary death, over and above other medical causes that will be testified to by medical 'experts' later in the trial. “Reasonable doubt” is the key concept here, and what might save Derek Chauvin … if anything can.

Day 1 and 2: Prosecutors focus on feelings, emotions and 'Black pain'

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2021-03-30 23:49

The small crowd that gathered and watched as the Minneapolis police officers held George Floyd pinned on the ground while awaiting the arrival of medics. Six of those shown above testified on Day 1 and 2.


By Carolyn Yeager

TEARY-EYED AND OUTRAGED witnesses to the 9 minutes of recorded “death throes” of George Floyd have made up the opening testimonies in the Derek Chauvin murder trial. What I've seen in these first two days is all about emotional reactions, and Fox News commentators get focused on the emotion just as much as the other mainstream networks.

Chauvin is being portrayed from the start as a heartless, even sadistic individual. It's no exaggeration to say the suggestion that Floyd was 'murdered' by Chauvin is something the prosecutors definitely want to leave in the jurors' minds.

I WROTE ON THIS SITE on last Dec. 31 that the year 2021 would be a time of “great awakening.” I felt a strong impulse to predict that even though I had no way of being sure of it. I can now say I am sure based on the first three months of this year 2021. What extraordinary events already! And much more to come—a year jam-packed with unfolding news at a speed that will challenge the best of us to keep up.
