This picture was labeled "German panzer division heads toward Moscow in 1941" in Google Images. But I've learned it is from the end of 1943 during fighting in the Zihtomir sector. The tank is a Panzer 6 (Tiger) of SS Panzer Grenadier Division Das Reich.(see comments below)

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Sept 22 to Sept. 25, 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Führer, as taken down by an adjutant and checked for accuracy by Martin Bormann. In this program:

  • The separate worlds of Europe and Asia are not marked by the Ural Mountains, but Asia penetrates into Europe without any sharp break;
  • Germany obtains the right to extend into the East by it’s awareness of what it represents – success justifies everything;
  • National-Socialism will never ape religion by establishing a form of worship;
  • The Russian soldier of the 1st World War was more good-natured than the cruel Bolshevik-led soldier of the current time;
  • The Four-Year Plan of 1936-40 with the aim of German self-sufficiency, not dependent on exports;
  • Russia as a source of raw materials for Germany and a consumer of simple German-made items such as cotton goods and household utensils.

Charles Krafft joins Carolyn as she explains from whence comes the idea that völkish/racial means the same thing as occultish/magical. Charles tells about the books and authors that have had a big influence in perpetuating the popular image of the “Supernatural Nazi.” Some highlights:

  • Adolf Hitler banned and suppressed esoteric organizations and individuals from having any connection to or influence on the NSDAP or his government from 1933-45;
  • The Thule Society emerged out of the Germanenorden (founded 1912), became a political organization in 1918, out of which Anton Drexler formed the German Worker’s Party (DAP) in 1919;
  • By Feb. 1920, Adolf Hitler had reconstituted the DAP into the NSDAP and severed all remaining links to the Thule Society;
  • An English fantasy novel “Vril, the Power of the Coming Race” was the source of the Vril idea, used by some, like Maria Orsic,  to engage in supposed communications with extraterrestrials;
  • Heinrich Himmler and two others established the Ahnenerbe institute within the SS to study “German Ancestral Heritage” through experiments and archaeological and cultural expeditions;
  • Since 1945, writers have produced a whole genre of “occult Nazi” books, comics and movies leading up to pornographic “stalags” featuring sadistic “Nazis” and their victims;
  • There has always been attraction to the fantastic and supernatural (and sexual!) and there always will be, but we should be aware it is also used to manipulate and fool us.

Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the August 19 – Sept 21, 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Führer, as taken down by an adjutant and checked for accuracy by Martin Bormann. In this program:

  • Encouraging high level of births is more useful than preventing war – to kill a man before he is born is the worst;
  • The people of Europe should not be dependent upon England, but the Ukraine and Volga Basin will be the granaries for us;
  • Criminals and anarchists should be dealt with swiftly and harshly, not turned over to lawyers to get them light sentences;
  • The “spirit of decision” in deciding on Operation Barbarossa, and the quality of the German soldier as “best in the world”;
  • The industrious German nature compared to the indolent Slav nature is pointed out in several instances;
  • His dislike of the Habsburg monarchy and his gratitude to Social Democracy for sweeping all royalties away;
  • The duty of National-Socialism is to allow the best in the people to develop.

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the August 1st-10th, 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Führer, as taken down by an adjutant and checked for accuracy by Martin Bormann. Some highlights from the program:

  • Even though German functionaries are incorruptible, too much uniformity and fear of initiative is not a good thing;
  • Hitler's sympathetic attitude toward workers, and his dislike of the bourgeoisie  and the plutocracy;
  • Hydro-electric and gas works - the future will depend on water, wind and natural gas;
  • The British method of ruling their empire was not to try to Anglicize the people, but to leave them to live according to their own ways;
  • Hitler sees the combined forces of Germany, England, the Nordic countries and Italy as greater than the USA.

Can one proclaim to be a National-Socialist and at the same time look to Russian President Vladimir Putin as the “new leader” that Whites can rally around? Carolyn doesn’t think so and says why, plus Bob from DC  calls in the 2nd hour with additional information and opinions. Some highlights:

  • How racially-minded is Putin – How much communist egalitarianism has stuck with him;
  • Can any Slavic nationalist ever deny the Holocaust, or even revise it, like non-Slavic Eastern nationalists, such as Hungary, do;
  • Michael Colhaze favors the Christian Slavs over the atheist West, even though bureaucratic corruption is a fact of life;
  • Putin’s father was a communist party true-believer and Putin joined the KGB directly upon university graduation;
  • Alexander Dugin, sometime advisor to Putin, heads a Eurasian Alliance that wants to assure the cultural diversity of all the peoples of the world;
  • Nat-Socialism’s “race eugenics” (sterilization law) was begun in 1933 to purify the German race from habitual criminal, feeble-minded and insane hereditary factors;
  • The U.S., Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland also had sterilization laws, while Hungary, UK, Switzerland, Poland, Japan, Latvia and Estonia were considering it.
