Lundeen's death paved the way for Minnesota to elect Internationalists

WHEN MINNESOTA SENATOR ERNEST LUNDEEN WAS KILLED IN A PLANE CRASH over Virginia on August 31, 1940, the Republican governor was able, according to the rules, to appoint a fellow Republican to fill the senator's seat. Though Lundeen had begun his political career as a Republican, he had run for office as a Farmer-Labor "Democrat" since 1933.

Governor Harold Stassen (left) had been the keynote speaker at the 1940 Republican National Convention in June that nominated Wendell Willkie as it's presidential candidate. Stassen threw his support to Willkie and even became his official floor manager. The circumstances of the 1940 Republican convention were unusual, from beginning to end.

Willkie was a New York lawyer, corporate executive, Democrat activist and 'interventionist' who only switched to the Republican party in late 1939! He had not run in any primaries but positioned himself as an acceptable choice for a deadlocked convention. Front runners for the nomination, Ohio Sen. Robert Taft, Michigan Sen Arthur Vandenberg, and New York District Attorney Tom Dewey, were all non-interventionist, as was Senator Lundeen of Stassen's state of Minnesota. The east-coast Republicans tended to be the internationalists who wanted to take sides in the European conflicts, and that's who Stassen seemed to be representing.

Three American friends of Germany during wartime—Lundeen, Strassburger and Viereck

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2018-11-27 00:23

MY FRIEND WOUTER SENT ME THE ARTICLE BELOW ABOUT ERNEST LUNDEEN, an American “isolationist” politician from Minnesota who had a fair-minded and truth-seeking attitude toward the German-Polish conflict and the war of September 1939. Through Lundeen, I've learned about a couple others who are also of particular interest to me. Lundeen served in the US House of Representatives from 1917 to 1919, when he was one of 50 Congressmen to vote against the U.S. declaration of war against Germany on April 6, 1917. For this reason he was not renominated by his Republican party. After switching to the Democratic Farmer-Labor party, he was elected again from 1933 to 1937 in the Roosevelt landslide. He then went on to become Minnesota Senator from 1937 until his untimely death in a plane crash on August 31, 1940.

Lundeen's father, C.H. Lundeen was an early pioneer in South Dakota, where Ernest was born and raised. The Lundeens in the USA come from Norway and Austria, according to ancestry sites. Ernest Lundeen is what I would call a true American patriot.

Why I support the AfD

AfD leaders hold a news conference with a generally hostile press.


By Carolyn Yeager

GERMANY NEEDS TO CHANGE. That is, the political philosophy that governs Germany needs to change. The current philosophy is internationalist and guided by remembrance of WWII “crimes”, especially the Holocaust slander. The change I want to see is to a pro-German Germany, a more nationalist Germany. The new party Alternative for Germany (AfD), described as populist, can bring about this change in an unobjectionable way. Yes, the Jews will scream, the left will scream, the communists will scream – but since AfD has no connection with Nazism, since it rejects any return to National Socialism, the party is not in any way 'unconstitutional' … unless and until being pro-German (or even being German!) becomes unconstitutional.

Time for Europe to drop the dishonorable war guilt against Germany

THE WAR GUILT HOAX

By August Krazer

The first part originally appeared as a letter to the editor dated 31 August, 1981, on the 49th anniversary of the eve of Germany's invasion of Poland, Sept 1, 1939. Find the German original here. This is a machine translation lovingly and carefully improved on by yours truly, Carolyn Yeager.


RUDOLF TRENKEL, BORN IN THORN, SAID AT A LECTURE in Scharzfeld/Harz (1978) on the basis of the captured files of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Intelligence, that in 1933 Poland had tried a preventive war against Germany with the support of France, as well as in 1936.

In the summer of 1939 more than 50,000 Germans were imprisoned, 70,000 fled, and "thousands of ethnic German women and children, men and old people were brutally murdered."

German establishment tries to create scandal around AfD star Alice Weidel

AS THE AFD'S ANNUAL PARTY CONFERENCE BEGAN in Magdeburg on Friday, one issue on the agenda is dealing with the improper donation charges being thrown around  by the other parties and the media, particularly the Deutsche Welle (DW) International broadcaster and it's allies.

I have already read at least three full articles at DW claiming improper handling of Swiss donations by Weidel's campaign. Alice Weidel (pictured) was elected to the Bundestag from the Lake Constance district, which is right on the border with Switzerland. I don't see anyone else playing this up to the extent that DW is doing. As the AfD has risen, DW seems to be intent on its own campaign of talking down and posing AfD as a threat to the Federal Republic's constitutional order.

Monica Schaefer's first interview after returning to Canada

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2018-11-16 21:43

The Brian Ruhe Show nabs first interview with "thought criminal" Monica Schaefer who is back home in Canada after her 10 month ordeal in the German Justice system. She tells Brian just about everything you'd want to know about her experience with the Munich judges and living in the Stadelheim prison. Even if you've been following the events and keeping up, this is a very interesting videocast that will keep you watching and listening. I found it so. Monica is such a good speaker, always precise in her language, plus she is a beautiful soul with an uplifting smile. As 'real' as can be. Watch it at Bitchute here.

My prior posts about Monica are here and here.

First World War ended 100 years ago with an atrociously false and unfair peace

By Carolyn Yeager

ON THE 11TH DAY OF THE 11TH MONTH OF NOVEMBER 1918, a German government delegation led by Mathias Erzberger crossed into France and signed a cease-fire at the 11th hour in the presence of Marshall Ferdinand Foch and other French and British military commanders. Yet this is now called by official historians a German surrender.


Update: See some great pics and news items in real time here: https://twitter.com/RealTimeWW1


Germany never intended to surrender militarily, but between this date and 28 June, 1919 when a peace treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Versailles palace outside Paris, the United States, Britain, France and Italy colluded in separating Germany from her allies, bullying and blockading (starving) her into accepting unacceptable conditions of peace. They did the same with Austria and Hungary, in separate treaties.

German government censorship office harasses Canadian website

THERE IS A WONDERFUL WEBSITE THAT HOLDS A TREASURE TROVE OF WRITINGS offering an alternative view to 20th Century German and related European history. It is called Scriptorium – your alternative history bookstore! It's not really a bookstore, but more like a library where everything can be read right there, or copied and saved in your own private digital library. Those responsible for the site are mainly German-Canadians, as I understand it, but as they say on their opening page (linked to above), the website is American-hosted. It features articles, books and brochures translated from German to English, along with a number of works originally written in the English language but which are hard to find, or have been squelched by the PC thought police. They actively continue to create new translations.

President Trump led in rejecting UN Global Migration Pact—Hungary and now Austria follow

Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz (left) and vice-chancellor HC Strache announce they are following in the footsteps of leaders from the United States and Hungary by a decision not to sign the UN Migration Compact in December.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE UN MIGRATION COMPACT FOR SAFE, ORDERLY AND REGULAR MIGRATION was approved in July by all 193 UN members except the United States. Later Victor Orban of Hungary said he would not sign the final document, which signing ceremony is to take place in Marrakesh, Morocco in December. Now Sebastian Kurz, chancellor of Austria, has announced that his country has decided not to sign it and will not send a representative to Morocco for the event. Poland is also indicating that it will probably decide the same. [Update: https://www.dw.com/en/merkel-meets-polish-pm-as-he-threatens-withdrawal-from-un-migration-pact/a-46135819]

The compact, which calls mass migration “inevitable, necessary, and desirable,” is made up of 23 goals, some of which definitely infringe upon the sovereignty of first world nations. Austria, in making its Oct. 31 announcement said that 17 of those goals are unacceptable to its government, led by Kurz's conservative Peoples Party in coalition with vice-chancellor Hans-Christian Strache's populist Freedom Party.

AfD wins largest increase from 2013 in Hesse regional election with 13%

UPDATE - Angela Merkel has announced she will not run again for CDU Chairman at the party's annual meeting in December. At last, at last! She says she will remain Chancellor until her term expires in 2021 but, of course, if her government coalition falls apart at any time, there could be a call for new elections. The CDU made a historically poor performance in the last two state elections.

BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT FROM READING THE GERMAN NEWS OUTLETS, who are all playing down the Alternative for Germany's success since it wasn't the big winner of the night and “only came in 4th” out of six parties that earned the minimum 5%. They fail to mention the AfD's +9 point increase from 2013, which is greater than the 8.5 point increase being so wildly celebrated for the liberal Green Party.

The fact that the Greens won between 19 and 20 per cent of the total vote in this Western Germany state, equaling the result for the declining Social Democratic Party (which lost eleven percent from 2013 – the biggest loser in that regard!) is enough reason for the press to accord them the title of big winner of this election. Well, the Greens probably took their substantial increase directly from the Reds!
