Oldies but Goodies

This early Heretics' Hour program from August 23, 2010, with Carolyn's favorite guest of all time, Wilhelm Kriessmann, is too good to be forgotten and left back in the archives. This program, "Who Started World War II?"  was originally recorded for Voice of Reason network.

Dr. Wilhelm Kriessmann returns as Carolyn’s guest to discuss the ideas and important data presented in Viktor Suvorov’s book, The Chief Culprit: Stalin’s Grand Design to Start WWII. Topics include:

  • Revisionists get prison terms in France and Austria;
  • Goal of Soviet Union was to communize Europe through Germany;
  • Offensive military build-up in USSR began in 1939;
  • Massive movement of Red Army troops and material to western border was completed in June 1941;
  • Operation Barbarossa narrowly beat a devastating attack from Soviet Union;
  • Who was behind Rudolf Hess’ peace mission to Britain.

German Intel Paid 'Neo-Nazi Informer' $240,000

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2013-02-26 15:38

Germany's lower house of parliament, the Bundestag, has halted public subsidies to the Nationalist Party of Germany (NPD) over an unpaid fine.

All parties in Germany receive 85 euro cents for every vote they get in European, legislative and regional elections, which drops to 70 cents once they have four million votes or more. According to Der Spiegel, NPD spokesman Frank Franz said he was unsurprised by the decision which he believed to be a way of blocking the party from standing at this September's general election.

BERLIN February 25, 2013 (AP)

Germany's domestic intelligence agency has come under fire for paying almost a quarter of a million dollars to a neo-Nazi informer linked to a far-right terror group.  [This actually refers to the three, yes 3 persons (on Spiegel cover at left) who are being patsied by German Intelligence (a misnomer) as murderers in order to paint a picture of dangerous political extremism in Germany.]

Opposition lawmakers and anti-Nazi campaigners criticized the payments made over 18 years after they were first reported Sunday by conservative weekly Bild am Sonntag.
Officials at the intelligence agency declined to comment on the report. But the head of a parliamentary committee tasked with investigating a string of murders allegedly carried out by the group says the information appears accurate.

Lawmaker Sebastian Edathy told The Associated Press on Monday that the newspaper's report matched information submitted to his committee. Edathy said the payments totaling €180,000 ($240,000) to a man identified by the newspaper as Thomas R.
were "off the scale" for an informant.

In other words, no money for the country's one nationalist political party, but over-the-top amounts of money to pay informants within the nationalist groups. It's hard work to try to build a murder case out of nothing.

Saturday Afternoon: Arthur Rudolf and Julius Streicher – Two very unlike German National Socialists martyred by Jews

Feb. 23, 2013

Carolyn details the life and achievements of two under-appreciated German National Socialist Party members and how they were perversely persecuted by jealous Jews. It is a study in the Jewish art of revenge and their targeting of the weak and those who are in a vulnerable position. It is a study of cowardice going up against courage. It is a warning of what is in store for all of us if we don’t regain our sovereignty.

  • Arthur Rudolf (left picture) was essential in developing the German V-2 Rocket for the first jet aircraft in the world – then developed the Saturn 5 rocket that sent American’s to the moon in 1969;
  • Later the U.S Justice Dept. and Congress allowed him to be branded a war criminal and banished from the country by a cabal of Jews;
  • Forgot to mention that Rep. Bill Green of NY (Jew) introduced a bill in 1985 to strip Rudolph of the NASA Distinguished Service Medal, and reintroduced it in 1987;
  • Julius Streicher (right picture) helped build up the National Socialist Party and Adolf Hitler’s popularity with his controversial but truthful magazine Der Stürmer (The Stormer);
  • The anti-Hitler Allied War Crimes Tribunal inaccurately and illegally charged him as a war criminal (when he had nothing to do with the war) and allowed Jewish and Negro officers to torture him in prison.

Christ Church in Hamburg as it was in Third Reich time

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2013-02-20 07:40

"A great find" is how my correspondent describes this photo from the Christ Church in Hamburg-Wandsbek. On the interior arch it says: "Our Faith is the Victory." At the beginning of the words is a cross; at the end a swastika.

This symbology certainly was not forced on churches, but was the decision of the congregation. Many did subscribe to the "Positive Christianity" or "German Christianity" that was encouraged by the National Socialists.

Here you can see a picture of  the church with it's tall bell-tower, still in existence.

And below are the bells in the tower. It was common during the Third Reich for the people to combine the two symbols.

Landmark German Protestant Church sold to Muslims; will become a mosque

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2013-02-20 06:34

This is news because it is the FIRST TIME a Protestant church in Hamburg, Germany's second largest city, will be converted into a mosque, according to my correspondent who calls it "a breach of taboo and a break in a dam."

Kapernaumkirch (Capernaum Church), pictured at right, a cultural heritage site, is located in the Horn district in downtown Hamburg. It was abandoned in 2002 for financial reasons due to declining membership. From this article:

The building and an adjacent 44 meter (144 foot) tower/steeple as well as the surrounding land was sold in 2005 to an investor, the Al-Nour Islamic Center, which has approximately 600 members, mainly made up of Arab Muslim immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa.

The church is currently undergoing renovations at a cost of one million euros ($1.4 million) and is scheduled to be reopened as a mosque on October 3, the Day of German Unity [Tag der Deutschen Einheit], a public holiday commemorating the anniversary of German reunification in 1990. Muslims in Germany have also claimed October 3 as Open Mosque Day [Tag der offenen Moschee], a day when non-Muslims are allowed to visit mosques.

Saturday Afternoon: An Investigation into a 'Holocaust' Blogger

Above: Herb Stolpmann’s picture on “My own German ID, during my stay at the old SS hospital. House 52B.” [I tried to separate just the photo, but couldn't do it so you get the whole thing.] Note the date 1952. Herb says he was discharged from the Wehrmacht by the Americans in 1946 at the age of 18. His discharge papers are on his site. He worked for the Americans in and around Munich and the Dachau camp until 1956.

After being frustrated by Herb Stolpmann‘s silence to questions she put to him in a comments section at Scrapbookpages Blog, Carolyn did a thorough reading of Stolpmann’s DachauKZ blog.  From this, she extracted the character study she presents in this program. She describes Stolpmann as a “cosmopolitan” internationalist who finds some kind of satisfaction by relating his brief WWII experience in the Wehrmacht and lengthy post-war experience at the Dachau former concentration camp in the employ of the Americans. His preference for Americans over Germans is quite clear, but it also seems that Germans did not care much for him!

After running out of stories about Dachau, Herb’s later entries are mainly text taken directly from communist, Jewish and Soviet Russian sources about other German concentration camps.

Dresden Anniversary March Co-opted by City Politicos

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2013-02-12 18:17

Nationalist marchers hemmed in by police in Dresden Germany, Feb. 12, 2013.

By Carolyn Yeager

Up to 2,000 nationalists and patriots from around Germany (far fewer than in previous years) gathered in Dresden today for their traditional silent torchlight march in memory of their murdered countrymen in the Feb. 1945 firebombing of the city by British and American air forces.

But the city was ready for them, ready, that is, to deny them the right to do what others of a different political persuasion are allowed to do. Nearly 6,000 police officers had been sent to Dresden, ostensibly to protect their march, but in reality to enforce the wishes of the Dresden city officials who this year decided to upstage the nationalist march with a demonstration of their own.

More than 10,000 people (according to the news) formed a human chain to prevent the nationalists from marching.

City wants emphasis on reconciliation

Ten thousand candles were provided by the city to the counter-demonstrators to be lit in front of the landmark Frauenkirche. This beloved old church was destroyed in the bombing and only rebuilt in recent years. The candles were arranged in front of the church to form a "candle of reconciliation."

Yet in London last year, Queen Elizabeth herself "cut the ribbon" on a large monument recognizing the "brave" British pilots who carried out the bombing on Dresden! No talk of reconciliation there.

Police cordoned off the nationalists - who are always called Neo-Nazis and extremists by everyone, even the Press - while the counter-demonstrators banged drums and shouted "Out with Nazis!" Is it any wonder that fewer marchers showed up this year when it is such a completely depressing experience?   

Commercial interests outweigh the truth of history

At a memorial service earlier in the day, Jewish leaders and church representatives mostly spoke against far-right extremism. Disgustingly, representatives from the UK and US were also in attendance, but not in penitence - no doubt quite self-righteously. There has never been even a hint of an apology from those nations - Germans are still doing all the apologizing. In fact, the city of Dresden calls it's event a commemoration for past war-time bombing victims in Dresden, England's Coventry and Japan's Hiroshima! God forbid that German suffering should stand out.

It does seem that the only thing post-unification Dresden wants to say to the world is "We don't want far-right extremism." Sure, and we know why - it hurts tourism, which is Dresden's number one industry.

It's painful to recognize that this is their only response to the devastating, sadistic two-day roasting of German women and children, both city residents and refugees, in 1945. The death toll is officially declared always to be 'up to 25,000' when, at the time following the bombing, it was widely known and stated to be over 100,000.  It sickens me too much to say anymore about it except Armes Deutschland.

The Amazing Operation Cerberus - February 11-13, 1942

Published by carolyn on Sat, 2013-02-09 18:58

This Monday, Feb. 11th marks the 71st anniversary of the German navy's successful Channel Dash from Brest Harbor in France to Wilhelmshaven. It was codenamed Operation Cerberus - the Roman name for the three-headed dog that guards the gates of the underworld, Hades.

Background: In 1941, with radar in its early stages, the giant ships could still operate in the open oceans and the German battleships were doing great damage to Allied shipping in the Atlantic. Twenty-two British merchant ships had been sunk by March of '41. This was not sustainable for the English and the battle of the Atlantic was under way.

After the German battleship “Bismarck” was sunk in May 1941, the rest of the fleet found refuge in the harbor at Brest, France. The RAF tried for months to destroy the German ships but they were well-protected by anti-aircraft. Finally, Hitler gave the order to bring the ships “Scharnhorst,” “Gneisenau” and “Prinz Eugen” back by the Channel route between England and France. The German Naval Commanders could not understand Hitler’s order – they had mostly been against that plan, but Hitler was right. The operation was successful.

The operation itself: The convoy, which included six destroyers, left Brest harbour at 22.45 hours on February 11, 1942, shortly after Britain's submarine “Sea Lion” ended its watch. Faulty radar in the British spotter planes combined with cloud cover to prevent the convoy from being discovered. By dawn on February 12th, the convoy was sailing off Barfleur, south of the Isle of Wight, in fog conditions. At Dover, the gun batteries based there engaged the Germans but their shells fell short. Torpedo-carrying Swordfish planes also failed; all six planes were lost in the attack thanks to the ferocious German fighters. More attacks were not successful, due partly to faulty communications at the RAF. One of the pilots flying a Spitfire was Canadian Barry Needham. At dawn on February 13th, the German convoy sailed into the port of Wilhelmshafen with a loss of just one of their minor escort ships and seventeen fighter planes.

This German “Channel Dash” remains the only occasion since the Spanish Armada in 1588 that ships belonging to an enemy of Great Britain have successfully traversed the English Channel. It was considered a disgrace for the British Admiralty that the German ships crossed in front of their eyes very near to the  south coast of England.

Lieutenant Leopold Wenger, [right] was one of the pilots of the “Jagdeschwader Richthofen” whose mission it was to escort and protect these very precious, giant battleships. The pilots were not allowed to use their radios; if they discovered any danger – for example, a British aircraft approaching – they could warn their wingman only by a short gun-shot in his direction. For Wenger and the other pilots of his unit, their mission was completed on Feb. 13 when the ships arrived at The Netherlands. They landed at Leeuwarden to fuel up and return to their airfield in France. Other German fighters from another unit took over the duty of escorting the armada to safe harbors.

Thanks to Willy Wenger of Austria for telling me of this anniversary and supplying the information about his older brother, Leopold, who, to his family, was always called “Bibi.” Leopold Wenger, a recipient of Germany's highest decoration, the Knights Cross, was shot down over Vienna in April 1945 at age 23.

 My dear countrymen and women! We are quite used to being generally referred to as monsters. And we are considered particularly monstrous because, in a question that certain gentlemen in Germany are nervous about, we are marching at the head – namely in the question of the opposition to the Jews.
