Adolf Hitler on 'Causes of the Collapse'

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2018-07-16 10:46

Continuing with passages from Mein Kampf, 2017 Thomas Dalton translation. See here.

Chapter 10 – Causes of the Collapse – is a long chapter, about 50 pages. I  reproduce here the parts that I think are most relevant and essential, beginning with Hitler's introductory thoughts.

P 427

Only that which is capable of extraordinary heights can experience a profound decline or collapse. The collapse of the Reich [referring to the 'Second Reich' or reign of Hohenzollerns (1871-1918), initiated by Bismarck] was so difficult and terrible because it had fallen from a height that can hardly be imagined in these days of misery and humiliation [in 1925].

[T]his empire had not been brought into existence by a series of parliamentary maneuvers, but by reason of the noblest circumstances. Its foundations were laid not amidst parliamentary debates but with the thunder and boom of war along the front that encircled Paris. It was thus that an act of statesmanship was accomplished whereby the German princes and people established the future Reich, and restored the symbol of the imperial crown. Bismarck's state was not founded on treason and assassination by deserters and slackers, but by the regiments that fought at the front.

From American Thinker, July 11, 2018 - On Birthright Citizenship

By Brian Lonergan

MUCH OF WHAT THE AMERICAN PUBLIC HAS BEEN TOLD ABOUT BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP IS WRONG. The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) recently filed a friend-of-the-court brief in Fitisemanu v. United States, a case of birthright citizenship currently before the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah. [...] The brief  examined the overarching matter of birthright citizenship.  Namely, does the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution grant automatic citizenship to children born in the U.S. to parents who are not U.S. residents, or who are in the country without permission?  The findings may well topple conventional wisdom about one of the crown jewels of the left's immigration agenda.

NSU “terror trial” limps to a close with predictable results

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2018-07-11 19:44

Wolfgang Stahl, Anja Sturm and Wolfgang Heer with their client in April 2013, whom they represented, for better and for worse, through thick and thin, for almost 7 years, and they aren't done yet.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE LIE AT THE BASE OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY infects everything about it and thereby poisons especially its system of justice. Everything is political in this captive nation—even 'justice' has to follow the politically correct script.

After a five-year trial (a 7 year investigation), at the end of which nothing was proven for certain without the voluntary written testimony given by main defendant Beate Zschäpe—in opposition to her lawyers' counsel—the verdict is so predictable.

Zschäpe was found guilty of the murder of all 9 “foreign citizens,” plus all the bombings and robberies – even though she wasn't present at any—and given a life sentence.

Adolf Hitler on How He Joined the DAP

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2018-07-10 16:46

Continuing with passages from Mein Kampf, 2017 Thomas Dalton translation. See here.

In the previous selection, Adolf Hitler was ordered by his regiment superiors, after the liberation of Munich, to attend a course of lectures meant to “teach fundamental civic principles.” He said there he met fellow soldiers who were of a similar mind, and he stood to speak in opposition to Jewry for the first time. This led to his being given a different role in a different regiment.

P411 8.6 THE 'EDUCATIONAL OFFICER'

In another direction too, this course of lectures had important consequences for me.

One day I asked to speak. Another participant felt obligated to break a lance for the Jews and entered into a lengthy defense of them. This aroused my opposition. An overwhelming majority supported my views. The consequence of it all was that, a few days later, I was assigned to a regiment then stationed at Munich, and given a position there as a so-called 'educational officer.'

Hoaxer Claude Lanzmann dead at 92; purveyer of holocaust by testimony

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2018-07-05 21:34

Claude Lanzmann, best known for the 9-hour holoaust-genre film "Shoah," died on Thursday at the Staint-Antoine Hospital in Paris.


By Carolyn Yeager

SHOAH IS 'CATASTROPHE' IN HEBREW. No doubt about it, the laws passed in Germany were seen as a catastrophe for Jews by Jews, but what took place after that never rose to the level of a “Holocaust.”

Jews were encouraged, and even helped financially and otherwise, to emigrate out of Germany. Most Jews, knowing the nature of the German people, preferred to believe the threat would “blow over”, or was something they could manage to survive, or thought they were too highly placed to be affected by it (like the Warburgs).

See Update: Day 3 & 4

I HAVE RECEIVED SOME PERSONAL ACCOUNTS since yesterday, which I'm following with great interest as there is not any kind of reporting at all in the mainstream media. The Federal Republic of Germany doesn't like to advertise the many 'neo-nazi' and 'holocaust denial' trials it has going on all the time in “the freest Germany ever!”

AfD Party Congress decides on Erasmus Foundation affiliation

AfD support is growing in Germany and they are planning for the future.


By Carolyn Yeager

I've found a website that might make my reporting on Germany a little easier—it is Free West Media. Possibly an improvement over the so-biased Deutsche Welle.

The Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) held it's annual party congress in Augsburg over the weekend and the big news was the decision to formally recognize the Desiderius Erasmus Foundation (DES) as its only party foundation. It rejected the idea of a party-based foundation.

Podcast with John Friend: Hitler and Trump - what we need to understand

I DID A PODCAST WITH JOHN FRIEND on Saturday morning. We talked about my book "The Artist Within the Warlord - An Adolf Hitler You've Never Known," which turned out to be quite an interesting discussion. The second edition published by The Barnes Review has just been released. We then transitioned to the subject of Donald Trump as seen by his critics and his admirers. I am a supporter while John takes the role of combination critic and admirer. Does that work?

I have to apologize that your listening pleasure is somewhat marred by a poor skype connection on my part, making my voice a little choppy. It's not too bad, but here and there part of a word is cut off. I haven't yet ascertained what the problem is, though I will before I do another podcast. 1h7m.

The pendulum swings—it's our turn now

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-06-29 21:33

The Democrats were anticipating what can happen to their "great society" with the retirement of just one Supreme Courts justice, Anthony Kennedy (pictured), while Trump is president. It just happened.


By Carolyn Yeager

EARLY IN MY LIFE, I experienced the cultural takeover of the U.S. by the Left with the Warren Supreme Court and all that it entailed. Now I have lived to see the pendulum begin to swing back in the opposite direction … as it always does.

My good friend Ray Goodwin likes to bring up that pendulum imagery, saying “Never fear, it will come back our way eventually. It has to.

Adolf Hitler on Discovering Gottfried Feder

Continuing with passages from Mein Kampf, 2017 Thomas Dalton translation. See here.

The short-lived Bavarian Soviet Republic (Bayerische Räterepublik) during the German Revolution of 1918–19, took the form of a workers' council republic. Räterepublik means a republic of councils or committees (council or committee is also the meaning of the Russian word soviet).

Chapter Eight: THE BEGINNING OF MY POLITICAL ACTIVITY

P 397 […] At the end of November 1918, I returned to Munich. I went to the replacement battalion of my regiment, which was now in the hands of the 'soldiers' council.' Their whole administration was quite repulsive to me, and so I decided to leave it as soon as possible. With my faithful war-comrade Ernst Schmiedt, I went to Traunstein and remained there until the camp was broken up.

In March 1919 we were back in Munich. […]
