AfD begins campaign against the Greens on environmental policy

AfD poster for its campaign to stop the Greens asks the question  "Beautiful Green World?" with "We demand a climate of reason!", and in the circle "Stop the Greens - Protect the Environment".

I'M REPORTING ON THIS IN RESPONSE TO MY READERS who attack the German Alternative für Deutschland party as “controlled opposition” because these readers believe being anti-Israel is the only important issue. They attack US President Donald Trump for the same reason. But both are doing tremendously worthy work for us in other very important areas.

The Alternative for Germany party (AfD) has begun a campaign to stop the Greens (a strongly rising leftist political party) from making advances the AfD sees as detrimental to the welfare of the German people. They write on their website:

Marriages, births and deaths—National Socialist population policy explained

Chapter Five: Population Policy (Handbook online is here)

It is the duty of the leaders of a people to be concerned about having as large a population as possible. This is the objective of our population policy. Fostering heredity obviously works hand in hand with population policy to produce a quantitative increase in population.

The German people at the moment is no longer a growing folk. If its birth-rate remains unchanged it is threatened with slow extinction. This seems at first to be contradicted by the fact that the population of the Reich has risen from 62.6 million in 1925 to 65.3 million in 1933. But this population increase during the past decade is not real growth. It is due to a damming up of old blood. This is proved by the death figures which sank from 17.4 to 10.8 per thousand. The consequence is an exceptional growth in the higher age brackets.

German scientists want to banish the word 'race' on political grounds

Ernst Haeckel was a German giant who died in 1919 in Jena, Weimar Republic; a zoologist, naturalist, philosopher, physician, professor, marine biologist, and artist who named thousands of new species and coined the terms ecology, phylum, phylogeny, and Protista, among others. He promoted and popularized Charles Darwin's work in Germany.


By Carolyn Yeager

IT'S HAPPENING. Yes, it's going further than you thought it could, sooner than you thought it would. Scientists in Germany have declared that “there is no biological basis for races, and there has never been one. The concept of race is the result of racisim.

Let that sink in.

They urge that the word 'race' no longer be used in science.

FRG President pours shame on his countrymen while in Poland

Federal Republic of Germany President Frank Walter Steinmeier speaks in Poland on September 1 on the 80th anniversary of the 1939 invasion of Poland by Reich forces after months of failed negotiation attempts.


By Carolyn Yeager

"MY COUNTRY UNLEASHED A HORRIFIC WAR THAT WOULD COST MORE THAN 50 MILLION PEOPLE — among them millions of Polish citizens — their lives. This war was a German crime," the president of the Federal Republic of Germany said in a speech before Polish President Andrzej Duda, and US Vice President Mike Pence, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe as well as representatives of 30 other countries. No Russian representative was invited.

Shame, shame, shame! Disgusting behavior by the top representative of today's Germany.

The German Races

Chapter Two: The German Races (for Chapter One, see here)

This much longer chapter gives the students an overview of the various “races” that make up the German people – their people. There are six distinct groups described, ranging from the 'Nordic,' the largest which makes up approximately 50% of the population, to the 'Western' making up only 2%. In between, from greater to lesser, are the 'Eastern', the 'Dinaric', the 'East Baltic' and the 'Phalic.'

From Hans F. K. Gunther's (pictured left) book Rassenkunde des deutschen Volkes (1933), it is quoted:

A race is a collection of individuals differentiated from every other group by its unique combination of bodily characteristics and soul attributes and continually reproduces its own kind.

The students were taught that pure races of people scarcely exist today. Individuals have everywhere intermingled. Many people in Europe have preserved above all the Nordic character; others the Western, or Eastern, or East Baltic and so forth. Since man is body, mind and soul, the mental and spiritual characteristics are considered along with physical structure.

AfD marks a win in constitutional court

TWO WEEKS AGO, I reported that the parliamentary election committee in the German state of Saxony banned 43 of the 61 candidates selected for the ballot by the Alternative for Germany party.  Now a state constitutional court has partially overruled that decision.

On the 75th Anniversary of the failed July 20 assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler

TRADITIONALLY, GERMANY'S CURRENT LEADERS LAY FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS IN the national colors of red and gold in the courtyard of the Bendlerblock, the large army headquarters in Berlin from where the plot leaders staged their attempted takeover of the German government and military known as Operation Valkyrie in 1944. It's still not known whether this year's 75th commemoration will be a more elaborate affair.

President of Germany bows his head in remembrance of the failed conspirators during a past July 20th commemoration ceremony at the Bendlerblock Army headquarters in Berlin.

Germany using increasingly repressive measures against political opposition

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2019-07-12 15:53

Germany's Identitarian movement members are young and clean-cut, but the domestic intelligence agency has placed them under increased surveillance as a "verified extreme right movement."


By Carolyn Yeager

IN THE WAKE OF THE GROWING SUCCESS of anti-migration parties and their demand for protection of the national populations in Europe, the establishmentarians that remain in power are cracking down harshly and ramping up their anti-right rhetoric against any and all they see as threats to their control. In Germany we've seen the treatment of Pegida (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West – founded in 2014), hit with bad press, frivolous lawsuits and intrusive investigation by domestic intelligence agencies. The founder of Pegida has been sidelined by Facebook in ways that make it difficult to find and read his content.

A major monument honoring Poles in the center of Berlin? Never!

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2019-07-06 09:02

In Central Berlin, the entrance to the memorial built to commemorate alleged crimes of the National-Socialist government (1933-1945) that never occurred. More of the same is now being proposed for Poles.


By Carolyn Yeager

HOW TO CONQUER the Germans … one way or the other. The Poles were never able to reach the 'promised land' in their historical quest to conquer and occupy Berlin, but they will never stop trying. The latest plan is to have the German government build a major monument to them as “victims of Nazism” in the center of Berlin, on a par with the memorials to the allegedly murdered Jews, the Sinti-Roma and the Homosexuals that currently take up large amounts of prime space in the German capital near the Reichstag. These are cultural groups that existed within Germany, at least, while the Poles are a foreign national population on foreign soil. What nation with any self-respect puts up a monument in the center of their capital city memorializing their enemy in a previous war? None that I know of.

Centenaries converge for Versailles Treaty, Weimar Republic, High Seas Fleet scuttling

THE 100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIGNING OF THE VERSAILLES PEACE TREATY was quietly commemorated this week in Germany. The date of the signing was June 28, 1919. 

The treaty was 100% the creation of the Allied victors. No German negotiators were allowed to participate in discussing its content. Thus the peace treaty was a fait accompli which Germans never agreed to but were compelled to sign. It forced the country to pay billions in reparations; to give up its colonies in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region; and to cede almost 20% of its territory to other nations: Alsace-Lorraine became French and most of West Prussia became Polish. The victorious powers — led by the United States, Britain, France and Italy — declared Germany and its allies to be solely responsible for the outbreak of the war that they themselves had turned into a World War. They accused the Germans of having forced them into war (when it was clearly the other way around), thus holding the Reich accountable for "all losses and damages" incurred.
