Hitler defends his Church policy as late as 1939

WE ARE BEING PLAYED  BY BLM (Black Lives Matter) today because “anti-Racism” has been allowed to become the required establishment view for all respectable Americans. It is the state religion. Respect shown to Black demands and general discontents, no matter how untethered to facts and real history, or how destructive to property and human lives, is the only response allowed in media, government, academia and America's classrooms. There are more and more organizations popping up to enforce this standard, too. Big Brother is watching.

Hatred of minorities or Love of country and kin?

Tobias Rathgen, the Hanau gunman, recording a short video that he posted online. He left behind a 24-page “script” detailing recollections of his life and his “racist, sexist” worldview, according to the media. It's been confiscated by authorities and we will probably never be allowed to see it, instead be fed quotes by the media, or possibly a radically condensed version after it's been carefully studied. This man should have mailed it to someone if he wanted it to be known.

The recent “shooter” incident in Germany that resulted in 11 deaths is being predictably hyped for all it's worth as an indictment of “Right-wing” thinking. Equally, it is being used as a slamming blow against any revival of German identity and German pride. See how it is being covered on Deutsche Welle, Germany's national broadcaster.

Seventy-five years after the Dresden war crime, still no justice

In memoriam ...

This digital composite image (click to enlarge) shows a statue on the tower of City Hall looking down in compassion at the ruins of the city center wrought by the British-American firebombing of February 13, 1945 as well as the same scene on February 12, 2015 to the left and the right. This area that was the cultural pinacle of historic Germany and the Third Reich has become a parking lot. I think there is a song that goes something like that. The vast majority of the city was devastated by the Allied firebombing of February 13-14, 1945.

Jews in Britain “own” the Church of England, says report

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND HAS PUT OUT an authoritative document titled “God's Unfailing Word” that shockingly calls on Christians “to repent for centuries of antisemitism which ultimately led to the Holocaust,” according to The Guardian news of November 21.

The document says it seeks to promote a new Christian-Jewish relationship.

Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, wrote a foreward to the official document in which he said the chief rabbi of Britain Ephraim Mirvis, who was given the privilege of writing an afterword to the C of E report, was “a friend,” and his comments were received in a spirit of friendship, “however tough they are to read.” The two men are said to be personally close.

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.

REMAINS OF THE LARGEST PRISONER OF WAR CAMP IN BRITAIN, housing at least 11,000 Germans and Italians at its peak in 1944, has been uncovered by archaeologists from University of Sheffield.

The site is overgrown with woodlands and was forgotten for more than 60 years.

Final installment from The Fatherland—Germany enforces total U-boat blockade

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2019-06-09 20:37

ON FEBRUARY 1, 1917, THE GERMAN HIGH COMMAND resumed submarine attacks on neutral ships in British waters. Their goal was to so devastate neutral shippers that they would become unwilling to trade with the Allies. Germany hoped that would inflict on Britain the same pain Germany itself had been suffering and force the Allies to come to terms. The Germans knew that this was a risky gamble because it could draw the United States into the war, but they hoped to bring the Allies to their knees before US involvement became significant.

In the map above, the shaded portion shows the extent of the German war zone.

Wilson breaks relations with Germany; 'The Fatherland' takes new name

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2019-06-07 01:32

Headline on Feb. 3, 1917 after President Wilson spoke to Congress and the nation about his decision to react as promised to Germany's resumption of a more aggressive submarine warfare.


BEGINNING WITH THE FEB. 14, 1917 issue, THE FATHERLAND became THE NEW WORLD, saying they were making the change "to avoid misunderstanding and unnecessary provocation." On February 3rd, President Wilson had declared to Congress that the U.S. had broken off diplomatic relations with Germany because of its announced change in submarine warfare policy. Ambassador Bernstorff was given his passports by the State Dept. and sent back home to Germany. Everyone knew this brought us that much closer to a declaration of war.

Little hint yet of dramatic events about to break

BECAUSE OF PRINTING DEADLINES, EVEN IN THIS LAST THE FATHERLAND NUMBER that came out on 7 February, 1917 there was no hint of the surprise U.S. break in diplomatic relations with Germany that was announced in Congress on 3 February.

In this issue, Capital correspondent Frederick F. Schrader once again writes the most pithy and informative account of the political situation: just how close America was to forcing peace on the belligerents, yet how active the powerful pro-British lobby was in keeping the war going.

Talk of peace in January 1917 raises hopes, proves deceptive

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2019-05-22 12:17

The "Peace Dove" of the Entente -This caricature was originally published in the 28 January 1917 issue of the satirical German journal Kladderadatsch. The “peace dove” of the Entente is portrayed as a vulture carrying a map of Europe showing the areas to be "severed from the German Reich."


FOLLOWING PRESIDENT WILSON'S "SERMON ON THE MOUNT," as it was dubbed by The Fatherland Editor George Sylvester Viereck—that is, his speech to the Senate on Jan. 22 laying out his ideas for peace—the talk in Washington and in the country was of a positive nature. It was felt that the position of Germany was strengthening and that that nation was gaining in good will. The belief in a coming peace was palpable. This turned out to be deceptive, or at least, not to last. Below is some of what was published in that upbeat tone in the next to the last issue that was to be published under the name of THE FATHERLAND. -cy
