Carolyn Yeager and Ray Goodwin read and comment on the Sept. 1-5, 1942 lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by aide, attorney Heinrich Heim. 1h23. Included in this episode:

  • Pre-and-post-war Vienna -Churchill's visit to Moscow - smoking is a repulsive habit;
  • Justice and injustice - girls and children less important than a Hare - May nights in Carinthia - grieves loss of good Gauleiter of Carinthia;
  • British politics - Lords Beaverbrook and Rothermere - the Nazi Princess;
  • Farming in Germany and Ukraine - never give in to the British - not at war with British people but with small clique who rule them - German art and how Jews try to destroy it;
  • Speaking several languages not sign of intelligence - German artistes: little Endres and Grock the clown - likeability of Spain and Spaniards.

Sorry Carolyn, the Leader said he prefers a friendly kitchen wench to a Political minded woman. Andre Anglin may possibly use this line to support his boys-only club.

I know, Morty, and it speaks well for him. What would you think of a man who said what he liked best about women was their political expertise? Laughing

But lets not forget he gave some of the Reich's highest medals to Hanna Reitsch and other female pilots, and sought out Leni Riefenstahl to produce the NSDAP's most important documentaries, and no man would have done as well.

Our leader also never protested that the public "didn't understand his meaning" if he got a negative reaction to his stated words. Andrew Anglin is like a weather-vane; he does a lot of turning.

Happy Birthday Ray, and Carolyn is right, you are an "environmentalist" in the Best sense.  I think the best term would be "conservationist" since modern environmentalism has unfortunately been hijacked by the left.  Hitler's compassion for animals is yet another example that flies in the face of those who would label him a monster.
