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.

Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the July 21st-28th, 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Fuehrer, as taken down by an adjutant and checked for accuracy by Martin Bormann. Some highlights from the program:

  •  Graditude to the Jesuits for the Counter-Reformation and its Baroque architecture, leaving the Gothic behind;
  • Admiration for Mussolini and the glory of Italian art-architecture, superior to the French;
  • Martin Luther credited with replacing the many regional dialects with  the great German language;
  • English-German industrial competition and their comparison in the arts and culture;
  • The merit of the German soldier, the prestige of the SS, and the weakness of the WWI command;
  • How to control the Eastern regions with soldier-farmers as colonists;
  • Wrong to exterminate the intelligentsia, but a class system is intolerable –cannot despise the man who sweeps the streets.

VIENNA - Officers’ military hospital

3 October 1943: I had hardly gotten here when they stuck me in bed again, which didn’t hardly please me. I’m in a military hospital here, officers only. There are four of us to a room, all of them sick; there are no wounded, and it’s nowhere near as beautiful as Constance. Now, once again, I’ve got a thick bandage on my knee and once again, the famous black ointment “Ichtiol” on it.

A few days ago I travelled to Meersburg [on the other side of the Lake Constance], which Mom had described to me as being so beautiful. I’m very glad to have undertaken this short outing; I really didn’t regret it. [Poldi received a visit from a lady friend of some years standing, one of the Luftwaffe auxiliary personnel, whom he had met in France; they travelled together on the trip to Meersberg. -WW]

Here in Vienna, visits are only permitted three times a week; but I very much hope that Father and Mother will be able to make it here together. In other respects our superiors here are rather strict; nevertheless I hope [sentence cut off]

[I myself was in Linz an der Donau at this time, assigned to the anti-aircraft auxiliary personnel as an anti-aircraft gunner, where I also attended grammar school at the Humanities High School at Marburg an der Drau. I was supposed to go to Leoben on holiday in the next few days and wanted to spend the holiday with our parents there together with Bibi (Poldi). -WW]

Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Sat. July 5th through July 15th, 1941 dinner table monologues by the German Fuehrer, as taken down by an adjutant and checked for accuracy by Martin Bormann. 59m. Some highlights from the program:

  • Russians do not naturally incline toward a Western, Aryan type of organized state;
  • Expansion into the East will create new tourist destinations reachable by autobahn;
  • Moscow must disappear and Bolshevisim be exterminated;
  • The dominion of natural law, no education in atheism, Christianity less tolerant than the ancient world;
  • Moral law governs the actions of Germans, making them uniquely capable of a revolution in religion;
  • Racial migrations, and “way of eating” a typically racial characteristic;
  • Stalin an extraordinary figure in history.

New easy-to-read version: Dissenting opinion of Justice R.B Pal, Tokyo "war crimes" Tribunal

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2014-03-12 06:49

Carlos W. Porter has just completed the tedious task of reformating the entire Dissenting Judgement, in 11 parts, of Justice R.B. Pal from the Tokyo Tribunal of 1946-48, first published in 1999.

"Publication of Pal’s dissenting opinion at the Tribunal was prohibited during the Occupation years, and even after the allied Occupation was over and Japan had regained her independence, it failed to draw the attention of the Japanese except for a few who had special interest in the Tokyo Military Tribunal. In a word, it was almost forgotten among the Japanese.

Monument to Justice Radhabinod Pal in Japan

"One thing that Pal was especially concerned about regarding the war was the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On visiting Hiroshima in November 1952, four years after the Tokyo trial ended, he was reportedly shocked to know the meaning of the monumental inscription dedicated to the A-bomb victims:  “Sleep peacefully, for we shall never repeat the mistake." [we = the Japanese leaders -cy]

“Why should the Japanese apologize to the Japanese?” he said with resentment, “It is not the Japanese who dropped the atomic bombs.” I would like to know what he would have said or, for that matter, what judgment the Tribunal would have passed on Japan if they had known at that time about the Emperor’s order to stop a project by the Japanese military to build an atomic weapon. The Emperor reportedly said that Japan should not be the first to make and use such an inhuman device, and thereupon the Japanese Army, by instructions from General Tojo, immediately gave up its A-bomb production project even at the cost of a possible final victory, while the U. S. decided to develop such a weapon and actually dropped two of them on Japanese cities just to shorten the war." -Akira Nakamura

Leopold Wenger's letters from Sicily and Lake Constance, June-Nov. 1943

Poldi Wenger's "beautiful" plane after being destroyed in an air attack and fire while parked in Marsa del Oro, Sicily on July 7, 1943


copyright 2014 Wilhelm Wenger and Carolyn Yeager
Translated from the German by Carlos Whitlock Porter

Notes from Poldi's brother, Willy Wenger:
The mission on 4 June 1943 was also Poldi’s last combat flight on the Channel coast and the letter to his mother dated 14 June 1943 was the last one from France, since he was transferred to Sicily on 15 June1943.

After the death of Hauptmann Frank LIESENDAHL, Oberleutnant Fritz SCHRÖTER took over command of the 10th Jagdgeschwader (Day Fighter Wing) JG 2 until 31 December 1942, after which Hauptmann Heinz SCHUMANN took over in April 1943 following SCHRÖTER’s transfer to Tunisia. In the meantime, the following name changes were made:

The 10th /JG 2 (Jagdgeschwader–Fighter-Bomber Wing) was renamed the 13th/ SKG10 (Schnellkampfgeschwader - Fast Bomber Wing)        Squadron Commander - Lieutenant Poldi WENGER

The 10th /JG 26 and the 10th /JG 54 were renamed the 14th/ SKG10
Squadron Commander – Lieutenant Colonel Erwin BUSCH

The newly appointed 15th/SKG10  --  Squadron Commander - Lieutenant Erhard NIPPA

The three squadrons formed the Second Group (Gruppe) of SKG10, the name of which was changed, as of December 1942, over the course of a reorganisation of the close combat flier units, to SG10 (Schlachtgeschwader – Ground Attack Wing)  ---  Group Commander – Hauptmann Heinz SCHUMANN

Transfer to SICILY
Take-off on 15.6.1943 at 13h53 with stopovers in Bourges, Istres and Albenga (near Allassio, Italy) on 16.6. to Pratrica di Mare near Rome. After refuelling, off to Capodichino near Naples on 17.6 over the Straits of Messina and Catania to Gerbini-West.

Throughout the entire stretch of 2,270 kilometers, Poldi’s first maintenance engineer Thielen had to sit crammed into the baggage compartment directly behind the pilot’s seat and must have needed a lot of endurance to sit hunched up in this cramped compartment for hours.

Taking off from the foot of Mount Aetna, they flew the first dive bomber and high-altitude bombing attacks against large Allied convoys in the Mediterranean and achieved great results. They bombed harbor installations on the island of Pantelleria from a VERY high altitude. The whole group flew hard missions against Allied invasion troops, particularly around Gela, achieving the first tank kill and damaging several landing craft. -WW

Saturday Afternoon: More on Germany persecution with Dr. Andreas Wesserle

February 22,2014

From whence comes the intense historical attacks on “the German people,” and why? Is it purely because of economic competition, or is there another level involved? Retired professor Andreas Wesserle talks about the genocidal residential bombing of Germany planned out by Winston Churchill and his "scientific advisor" Dr. F.  Lindemann (Lord Cherwell), whom also went after thousands of irreplaceable cultural-historical landmarks in some of the oldest German cities. Some highlights of the discussion:

  • The British Mosquito 2-engine fighter-bomber had the capacity to fly all the way to Germany and back, and outfly all German fighters at the time – thus the heavy bombers were not needed;
  • Erich Kern in the Swiss newspaper Die Tat in 1955 put the number of German civilian dead due to air attacks at 2 million, 5 thousand.
  • Initially, the Americans were only bombing legitimate war targets, like the Messerschmitt factory outside of Regensburg in 1943, but later also became genocidal;
  • The fate of the Eastern Jews: some came West, a million more in the Soviet east were dispatched by Stalin to Siberia;
  • The “Sophie Scholl fable” similar to the Anne Frank romantic stories;
  • Hans Scholl and the half-Russian Alexander Schmorell wrote pamphlets under the banner of the White Rose Society with text suspiciously similar to Soviet propaganda and the Nuremburg Tribunal findings.
