Adolf Hitler and the Army of Mankind

[Above: 'Wir alle sind Soldaten' = 'We are all Soldiers' (primitive late war graphic)]

     Page twenty-one. We'll start this with one of the strangest, unexpected profiles: Jews fighting for the Third Reich. If you don't already know, you are in for a mind blowing ride. Yes, there were thousands of Jews, around 150,000 that fought for Adolf Hitler. But I thought we were told they were all in concentration camps and being exterminated? More proof their narrative is bullshit. Wanna see more proof that our masters lied to us? Check out this German phone book from 1942/1943! Thousands of Jews listed, tons of businesses and other services ran by Jews. In BERLIN -- the capital of the Reich. Erich, a print assistant for the widely famous Der Stürmer newspaper, ran by Julius Streicher, stated in a 1988 interview:

'Again not all Jews were removed; if they served the Reich or were nonpolitical, or married to a Christian, they were left alone.'


The rabbit hole just gets deeper and deeper doesn't it? It's all kind of hard to swallow after everything we've learned isn't it? So where is the truth? Why did they lie to us and lump all of the Jews into one giant pile of victims? Money, which they still get from Germany -- 75 years later, and counting!!! Sympathy. "Oh those poor, poor Jews..." The eternal victims. But what about that 150,000 that fought for Germany during WWII? I'm sure the commies and the Americans treated them badly and hurt their feelings. I think they should be getting payments too.

But the lies go much deeper. Jews were claiming the six million number as early as 1916. "Give us money now or six million Jews will starve." Check these out and fall deeper into the rabbit hole...

There were 150,000 'Nazi' Jews who fought for the Third Reich during WWII, including two generals, eight lieutenant generals, five major generals, 23 colonels and many of them no doubt giving their lives in combat. Why did they hide this from the world? Why were there a ton of Jewish businesses in 1943 in Berlin [see phone book above]? Of course, it's because it wouldn't fit their narrative of the poor defensless victim.

Bryan Rigg, from Cambridge University, has uncovered seventeen Jews who were awarded the Knight's Cross, Germany's highest military honor. Rigg also interviewed the former West German Chancellor, Helmut Schmidt, who had been an officer in the Luftwaffe even though he had a Jewish grandfather. Rigg had documented 1,200 cases and conducted more than 300 interviews of soldiers or their relatives. He uncovereed 30,000 documents and detailed the Jewish ancestry of two field marshals, 10 generals, 14 colonels and 30 majors.

'The revelation that Germans of Jewish blood, knowing the Nazi regime for what it was, served Hitler as uniformed members of his armed forces must come as a profound shock. It will surprise even professional historians of the Nazi years.'
--John Keegan, author of The Face of Battle and The Second World War

[Above: Some recent works. More and more information is coming to the light revealing more of their lies]

In a 1987 phone interview Herbert Axster, Chief of Staff of the V2 rocket program and later a target of Operation Paperclip, revealed more shocking details:

'Something else they won't teach you is that we had Jews working for us as well. They loved their country and ignored the politics and in turn were left alone. Even the SS knew of these things and let it slide.' [read the interview here]

Why would Jews work on German secret weapon projects? Because these Jewish men knew what everyone else knew, National Socialist Germany was not the place that the victors painted it as.

In one of the more shocking hidden truths, the brave French Waffen-SS assault brigade Charlemagne, who stand out in the history of WWII as the indomitable giants who were amongst the last defenders of Adolf Hitler and the Reichstag, the author David Littlejohn notes:

'Of the volunteers themselves, some of the "Frenchmen" were from Indo-China (now Vietnam) and Laos, and there were even, incredible to say, some Jews (who had volunteered for the German para-military forces in occupied France [...])...'
--Foreign Legions of the Third Reich - Vol. 1: Norway, Denmark, France. By David Littlejohn, pg. 170, July 1987...

Even more surprising, in a 1989 interview, Dirlewanger Brigade veteran Karl-Heinz had this to say:

'Later we even had concentration camp inmates join us... the camps were not what they claimed, a couple men even claimed to be Jews...'

Wait, Jews in Dirlewanger? One of the most notorious 'anti-Jewish' armed groups of the war had Jewish members? Or at the very least men who claimed Jewish ancestry. Why would anyone lie about such a thing knowing Jews were supposedly being killed all over the place? Let's see what else Karl Heinz had to say:

'My first combat action came a little later. We had to guard over the many Jewish areas, which was boring. We even had time to play with the kids, and meet the girls, even though we had orders not to make friends, as we could give away vital information. I met a Jewish girl my age, who worked making cheese, she would share with me, and I would give her chocolate and cigarettes.'

This doesn't sound like the history we've been taught does it? Men from the murderous, monstrous, and all-round evil Dirlewanger playing with Jewish children and befriending and trading with Jewish girls? WWII has to be the most lied about topic in the history of mankind. The rabbit hole is deep indeed my friends.

Below are just a few of the documented men with Jewish blood who fought for the Third Reich...

[Below: Emil Maurice, half Jewish, one of the Old Fighters who was beside Adolf Hitler during the Putsch. He was also the first personal driver of Adolf Hitler, not to mention an early member of the SS, and perhaps most importantly, a member of the Personal Guard of Adolf Hitler, the Stabswache. In 1923 he was imprisoned in Landsberg with Hitler for the failed Putsch. Note that in this picture he wears the highly coveted Blood Order medal, for those who participated in the 1923 Putsch. After the war the Allies sentenced him to four years in slave labor camp.]

[Below: In a 1993 interview Knight's Cross winner and Battalion Commander Eberhard Heder from 5. SS-Panzer Division 'Wiking', had this to say about Jews and Emil Maurice:
'Himmler really put together an organization like no other, would you believe the SS had Jewish members as well?
For all that is said, it interests me still today that Emil Maurice was a very early founder of the Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler ['Shock Troop' Adolf Hitler was a small, short-lived bodyguard unit set up to guard Hitler in 1923.] and friends with Hitler.
He and Himmler may not have gotten along, but he did have much influence on things. Something I never understood was if the regime was anti-Jewish then why did so many Jewish fellows serve in the armed forces and government? There is something for you to think about.'

Something to think about, indeed.]

[Below: A half-Jewish Field Marshal named Erhard Milch. He was a personal friend of Hermann Goering. He joined the National Socialist party on April 1, 1929. He was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross on May 4, 1940. After Milch was promoted to Field Marshal he was also put in charge of all aircraft production. At the end of the war, after remaining faithful and fighting until the last moments, he was captured by Allied forces on the Baltic coast on May 4, 1945. Upon surrendering, he presented his coveted Field Marshal baton to the British Brigadier commando Derek Mills-Roberts, who cowardly broke the baton over Milch's head in a savage beating! A criminal act, not to mention despicable, but typical of the Allied code of conduct. Many, many soldiers were simply murdered upon surrendering and buried in mass graves. Many more were murdered in P.O.W. 'camps' (open fields with no shelter or food) or concentration camps. Another favorite of the Allies was to crush the testicles of their prisoners. I shit you not. Look it up for yourself. Milch was imprisoned for 'war crimes' in Landsberg, and was released almost a decade later in 1954.]

Richthofen was a true warrior and genius of battle, one of Hitler's favorites, he was the youngest officer to be promoted to the rank of field marshal, other than Göring. Von Richthofen was an open admirer of Hitler and rightly saw him as a genius without peer. Richthofen was responsible for some of the greatest military victories of Germany and the Axis. He participated in nearly every major battle, going all the way back to Germany's Condor Legion in Spain. He was a visionary, understanding air warfare like no other, and more importantly, he was driven and unstoppable. A pioneer and a brilliant tactician, he was truly one of Germany's greatest sons. During his time at the Technical Research Office Richthofen was the one who issued the contracts that led to the development of the V-1 and V-2 cruise missiles! These revolutionary orders allowed for the development of German jet engines. Loyal till the very end, he was only stopped by a brain tumor at the end of the war.]

    [Below: General Gotthard Heinrici was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords, an incredible achievement. Heinrici was a highly respected tactician by Adolf Hitler himself. As proof he was made commander-in-chief of the last remaining forces of Army Group Vistula (final remnants of Army Group Center) in front of Berlin in April 1945. That aside, Heinrici's wife Gertrude was half Jewish.]

    [Below: Not all is as it seems. The 'historians' seem to have left out a 'few' interesting facts. Case in point, where do you think this picture was taken? Somewhere on the streets of Germany, you say? Berlin 1930s? Crowds of Germans ready to meet Adolf Hitler? No, no and no. The crowd, Jewish residents of Litzmannstadt, screamed 'Herzlich willkommen' (heartfelt welcome). Litzmannstadt was a Jewish ghetto in Poland. This picture shows German soldiers as they entered the city...]

    In a 1990 interview with a 'Willi', a German veteran from the 44th Infantry Division Reichsgrenadier Division 'Hoch-und Deutschmeister', the old soldier reveals:

    'We moved on into a city called Krakau and here was another strange incident, Jews came to us begging for help to stop attacks on them.
    Because many Jews spoke Yiddish, which is sometimes linked to German,
    the Poles turned on them and accused them of aiding us. We saw some who had been beaten badly.'

    In a 1988 interview with Heinz-Peter Wack, winner of the German Cross in Gold and officer in the Pioneer Battalion 132:

    'There were attacks on Jews as well by the Poles, which the army had to stop. Can you imagine? You would not believe that today but we protected Jews.'

    In a 1983 interview with Knight's Cross winner and veteran of the Battle of Kursk, Major Hans Drexler, he states:

    'I was part of army group center; I will tell you what I saw. The first large city we came into was Bialystok [the largest city in northeastern Poland],
    which suffered through the Soviet occupation. While the people welcomed us as liberators, I saw things I wish I could unsee.Jews had been killed, whole families, by the people.

    We stopped in the city to settle things down, the mobs were enraged, the SS and police had to arrest many to stop it.
    The people demanded we know what happened, so they sent representatives to our generals and officers.
    They said when the Soviets came, the city's large Jewish population aided the Soviets. They turned in many patriots, Christians and dissenters.

    Later on the Soviets emptied the prisons, and the former prisoners went on a rampage of killing those who had turned them in.
    Whole families were killed or taken away, property was taken, and wives were raped in front of their husbands,
    before being shot.
    [to be clear, he is speaking of the German liberation of the east, during the chaos before the Germans were able to establish order.-Ed.]

    This is what the mob told us, and it was a day of revenge against those who had committed crimes or aided in crimes against the people.
    They seemed upset at us, that we had stopped them from these killings and took their weapons. We had to restore order before we left.'

    [Below: Major Hans Drexler.]

    In another interview, done with Luftwaffe assistant (Luftwaffehelferin) Elizabeth Lubes in 1999, she comments on her experience with Jews in Lviv in October 1941:

    'The first thing I saw when walking around the city center was armed Jews with armbands. We were told they were on our side and protecting the city from criminals within their ranks.
    They seemed friendly, but had hard looks on their faces. They would stop other Jews and ask for their ID cards, it appeared. There were many Jews in the city selling wares to the soldiers passing through.
    I ended up getting comfortable with them, and later bought a very nice bracelet to wear on my ankle...'

    '...and I understand that when the Bolsheviks retreated, many Jews died in pogroms before German forces stopped it and restored order.
    That is why so many Jews became friendly to us, they were grateful Germans halted the killings.'

    In yet another interview, this time with Albert Stenwedel, Knight's Cross winner and Battalion Commander of the 13. SS-Gebirgs Division Handschar, done in 1993, he states:

    'I know we are getting blamed for killings of Jews, which we never did. I remember in the Baltic States after liberation we knew local militias killed many Jews whom they blamed for helping the Soviets.
    German forces had nothing to do with this, yet historians find a way to twist it, we actually stopped the killings and saved many Jews.
    The Allies won the propaganda war against Germany, and they are still fighting it.'

    [Below: Albert Stenwedel.]

    And still another interview, done in 1988 with the great SS-Sturmbannführer Walter Reder, who served in the SS Division Totenkopf and was Battalion Commander of the 16. SS-Panzergrenadier Division 'Reichsführer-SS'. Reder was also a winner of the Knight's Cross and German Cross in Gold, amongst a plethora of other medals. Reder spent decades behind bars after the war for alleged 'war crimes', but said this about Jews:

    'There were many Jews in Poland also, whom I will note were very kind to us.
    We were looking for criminals and saboteurs, who liked to hide in Jewish areas,
    we became good at searching. They would often offer us food or water...
    We also protected Jews from militia attacks, of which there were a few.'

    [Below: Walter Reder.]

  • Jews were given authority to handle their own people, in ghettos, camps and elsewhere. Below are a few examples of Jewish people in authority positions.

    [Below: An entrance to a Jewish ghetto in Poland. No German soldiers or guards in sight. Were the ghettos to protect Jews?]

    [Below: Jewish women sewing NSDAP uniforms. Jews performed many tasks during WWII, from mundane everyday jobs to highly technical jobs like working in V1/V2 rocket plants!]

    [Below: As all people, Jews were an important workforce for the Third Reich.]

    Very strange to your ears, isn't it? Jews working for National Socialist Germany? We've been jammed with so much propaganda and so many lies that our brains can barely even consider the possibility. Can we comprehend that countless German Jews were equal fodder for the great Judeo-American murder machine? Can we understand that even lowly Jews are victims of the great lies of WWII? Their house of cards -- their empire of skulls and oceans of blood -- depend on their lies being universally believed. That includes Jews themselves.

    In a 1989 interview with Günther Ortmann, Battalion Commander of the SS-Police Division, he states:

    'There were countless Jews who remained in Reich territory who left politics alone and in turn were left alone. Berlin had a large Jewish population even at war's end, and Jews fought for the Reich in all capacities as well. They were not our enemy, only the left radicals were.'

    [Below: A postage stamp from German occupied Poland (General Government) from 1941 showing a cancel in Hebrew from the Jewish community in Krakow.]

    [Below: Here's another interesting tidbit. If you look up the RZM government contract (M1/42) you will find that this zinc NSDAP party badge is made by a company named 'Kerbach & Israel' from Dresden. A Jewish company. A Jewish company which produced 'Nazi' party membership badges. Hmm... something sounds strange, doesn't it? It is claimed that this company was later 'taken over' by the government, but if that is the case, then why still use the name 'Israel'?]

    [Below: The beloved and famed National Socialist hero, Léon Degrelle, whom Adolf Hitler had personally told 'If I had a son, I'd want him to be like you', had no hatred for the Jewish race in particular. Here's a line from Degrelle's granddaughter Elena Balaguer Degrelle, who published a letter on April 12th 1994 in the newspaper El Mundo:

    'Would you be interested to know that he (Léon Degrelle) had Jewish coworkers on his newspapers and in his party, and one of them became a rexist deputy?'

    [As quoted in 'Léon Degrelle in Exile (1945 - 1994)', pg. 484, ©2022 José Luis Jerez Riesco, Translated by Jason Rogers, Antelope Hill Publishing (originally published in Spanish in 2009).]

    [Below: Interesting words from Hermann Göring, shortly before his suicide, as quoted by American psychologist Gustave Gilbert:

    '...that he had never been anti-Semitic himself, had not believed these atrocities, and that several Jews had offered to testify on his behalf.'

    This was by far not unique. In fact, many Jews came forward to be character witnesses for the accused 'Nazis'. Many even helped Germans after the war that had had everything taken from them. A number of Jewish former concentration camp inmates even came forward to protest the Allied lies that they were death camps. Some even wrote books trying to set the record straight. These Jews found themselves as much an enemy to the powers-that-be as the 'Nazis' themselves. The fact of the matter is, the tyrants do not care if you are a Nazi or a commmunist, a democrat or a republican, a black, a woman or a man, or even a Jew. They will destroy you equally if you try to tell the truth.]

    [Below: Paul Rassinier (March 18, 1906 – July 28, 1967) is a prime example of a 'wrench in their machine'. He was a communist and a member of the 'French resistance' AND was an inmate in Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora concentration camps. After the war he wrote books and spoke out against the Allies' lies of death camps. He spoke with a weighty authority, not only was he a a fervent anti-'Nazi', HE WAS THERE. The enemies of truth called him 'the father of Holocaust denial'. The dark forces of the world suppressed his personal story of truth and did everything they could to stifle Rassinier himself.]

    [Above: Max Oscar Otto Koischwitz]

  • Max Otto Koischwitz (February 19, 1902 – August 31, 1944), sometimes called 'Mr. OK' (from his initials), or Doctor Anders, was an American citizen of German origin. Like the many other American patriots, Koischwitz recognized WWII for what it was - German resistance to Anglo-Jewish world control and finance. He recognized communism as the threat it was, which was soon to swallow half of Europe.

    Military service was deep in Koischwitz's blood. His ancestors had a rich history of patriotism and sacrifice in Germany and Prussia.

    Koischwitz was a gifted and sharply intelligent man. In 1920 he completed his secondary education in Berlin, four years later he graduated from the University of Berlin in 1924, after which he immigrated to the United States and later became a citizen on March 29, 1935.

    In the USA Koischwitz blossomed. First he taught German at Columbia University and later became a professor of German Literature at Hunter College, New York City.

    It is a very interesting note that originally he did not support Adolf Hitler and was rather 'anti-Nazi' in fact. But as the 1930s progressed he saw the miracles that Adolf Hitler was doing and staunchly changed his mind. He was an open supporter of National Socialism.

    During the 1930s Koischwitz published three books: Deutsche Fibel (German Primer) in 1932, Bilderlesebuch (Picture Reading Book) on January 1, 1933 and Die Bilderfibel (Picture Primer) in 1937.

    [Above: Koischwitz wrote Deutsche Fibel (German Primer) in 1932, Norwood Press. This is an ultra rare copy. Click to see more.]

    He would soon come crashing head first into the dark forces that were swallowing America's soul. In the Autumn of 1935 Hunter College forced Koischwitz to take a leave of absence after charging him with the high crime of 'anti-semitism'. Yes our man Otto was telling it like it is in his college lectures.

    In January 1940 he immediately resigned from Hunter College. So this was the 'Land of the Free' eh? Otto had a lot to learn, but he was an excellent student. Disgusted, but far from beaten, he returned to Germany.

    Just a few months later, in the spring of 1940, Koischwitz got a new job as a program director in the U.S.A. Zone at the Reichs-Rundfunk-Gesellschaft (German State Radio). Highly intelligent and equally clever, Koizchwitz directed his radio show toward college students and German-Americans in the USA. His show gave him a chance to talk about his many interests, from philosophy, literature, drama, politics and music. His enemies claimed that his broadcasts were laden with anti-Jewish, anti-British, anti-communist and anti-Roosevelt sentiments. And they were right! Proudly so! He has been described as: '...anti-Semitic and a heart felt supporter of National Socialism...'

    While in Berlin Koischwitz met up with one of his former students, Mildred Gillars. Yep, Axis Sally herself. Gillars was teaching English at the time, but destiny called. Koischwitz offered her a job on the radio. And she took it.

    [Above: Mildred Gillars]

    The both of them became a force to be reckoned with. Koischwitz was a driving force. A man dedicated to waking up his fellow man from the mental dungeons they were born into.

    It was inevitable the two would fall in love. Together they ruled the airwaves. American soldiers loved listening to the pair, especially during the 'Home Sweet Home Hour', aimed especially at the Allied forces in North Africa.

    Koischwitz gave everything he could to the cause. He even found time to edit a magazine called 'The Overseas Kid' for American POWs. This did not go unnoticed, in September 1943 he was made the head of the USA Zone. But Koischwitz wanted more. He was a man driven, possessed with boundless energy for the fight.

    In October 1943 he and Gillars were given permission to tour POW camps. In what proved to be an extremely popular segment, the two interviewed American POWs and recorded and broadcasted messages to their loved ones back home. The American propaganda machine likes to say that Koischwitz edited the interviews to make the POWs sound happy. They also like to say the American POWs didn't have enough food and supplies. But I've read many stacks of American POW mail written to loved ones at home. They sound about as happy (and bored) as a prisoner could be. Anyway, here is a sample of American POW mail. But maybe the Germans put guns to their heads and told them what to write. Yeah sure.

    SGT. Donald J. Olson
    November 27, 1944
    Dear Mom and Sis, I thought I'd write a letter for a change even though there isn't much to write about. I am still in the best of health and hope you are well too. As yet I haven't received any mail, but I shouldn't have to wait too much longer. Wally Mielk has had a few letters from home so I should be next in line. The weather is a little colder now so we stay indoors a good deal of the time. The Red Cross and Y.M.C.A. keep us supplied very well with clothing and books and various other means of entertainment so we aren't so bad off. We even have fairly recent swing records to listen to. Take it easy.
    Love, Don.

    Koischwitz and Gillars continued to visit POW camps, even after D-Day (June 6, 1944), they toured hospitals and POW camps while staying in Chartes (famous for the Notre Dame Cathedral) and Paris.

    Always the creative one, Koischwitz experimented with writing and producing sketches and plays with Gillars in the lead. On May 11, 1944 they performed the 'Vision of Invasion', a little over three weeks before the D-Day invasion.

    [Above: Koischwitz at Hunter College, New York City.]

    Koischwitz had a fire burning within him that nothing could extinguish. Even as the war drew closer to its inevitable end it did not sway him, in fact he only grew more dedicated. He had broadcast for nearly the entire war. Nothing could stop him. Not the monstrous Allies. Not death. He breathes in our words. Here his deeds are writ in digital stone.

    It is reported that Koischwitz died in Berlin's Spandau Hospital of tuberculosis and heart failure on August 31, 1944. By then Berlin was in ruins, a shell of its once beautiful self. But the real beauty was just beneath the burnt wreckage and unburied bodies. Beneath the terrible veneer of Allied war crimes shined indomitable human beings. Who no bomb or bullet could stop. The Otto Koischwitzes. Who, despite all, fought on.

    Of course, we will never really know what happened to Koischwitz. After all, when he died he was captured and in communists hands. I think it is very likely that he could have been murdered, along with the millions of other Germans and others who were massacred after the war by the victorious Allies. Koischwitz wouldn't have made a good prisoner. He wouldn't stay silent and watch innocent women and children be raped and murdered. As Adolf Hitler said:

    'There are two ways to judge a man: by the woman he marries and the way he dies.'

    I know in my heart Koischwitz would have died a hero. He certainly lived as one.

    The United States placed charges of treason on Koischwitz and others. The charges were formally withdrawn by the Department of Justice due to lack of evidence on October 27, 1947.

    A few excerpts from his broadcasts follow:

    'The world of today is divided into two camps. On the one side, Bolshevism. On the other, the defenders of civilization. Why is America still in the wrong camp?

    And do you believe that the defenses of Europe are only improvised, or that you could outnumber the mighty Axis armies in Europe like another Afrika Korps? The only territory that any of the American soldiers would ever occupy in Europe will be the six feet of sod in one of the military graveyards in which we shall bury the remains of any and every man who attempts to force his way into Europe.

    The camp where the American boys are at present is the most beautifully located prisoner-of-war camp I've ever seen, and I have seen many of them... One of the German officers who took me through the camp complained with a smile that the Americans didn't behave exactly soldier-like. Now that struck me as very funny, because I heard it before, over the London wireless. The BBC affirmed that their American friends lacked discipline. The Americans in Africa, the radio related, asked too many questions. They lack the traditions of their British cousins...'

    [Above: Huey Long -- lovingly dubbed 'Lousiana's Hitler' by the press.]

  • Huey Pierce Long Jr. (August 30, 1893 – September 10, 1935), was an extremely important and equally interesting American politician with the nickname 'The Kingfish'. He was the 40th governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and a member of the United States Senate from 1932-1935.

    During the Great Depression Huey Long grew incredibly popular. He didn't like President Roosevelt's 'New Deal' and he spoke out against it. His fiery personality gained him many dedicated followers. He was from one of the poorest parts of Louisiana and he rose from the same poverty that so many Americans were drowning in. The people could relate with him and he became a true champion of the poor. He was a populist member of the Democratic Party and his popularity grew with his 'Share Our Wealth' program.

    Long was one of nine children born into a very poor part of north-central Louisiana near a town called Winnfield, the seat of Winn Parish, and the residents felt left out and hopeless when it came to the political system. His parents opted to home school him until the age of eleven after which he entered Louisiana's public school system. He proved to be way ahead of the other students and quickly gained a reputation as a very smart child, so intelligent that he asked to skip the seventh grade and it was granted. He was even awarded a full scholarship to Louisiana State University for his debating skills... unfortunately the scholarship did not cover the textbooks he needed or a place to live and his family simply could not afford it. His calling would have to wait. This brilliant young man had to find a job and he became a traveling salesman. Certainly this experience influenced his future position in politics.

    Later he finally was able to attend a few colleges and became a lawyer where he worked representing the poor. During this time Long was elected to the Louisiana Public Service Commission. He wasn't afraid to take on big corporations and he prosecuted large companies such as Standard Oil. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice and former president William Howard Taft is quoted as saying that Long, after a successful argument, is "the most brilliant lawyer who ever practiced" before the court. What a compliment!

    For a very short period, and at the behest of his devoutly religious mother, Long attended Seminary school at Oklahoma Baptist University in September 1911. After a semester he realized that being a Baptist preacher was not for him and his true calling was the law. In 1912 Huey Long attended the University of Oklahoma College of Law and also worked as a salesman in order to support himself. During this time he promoted a baking contest in order to sell Cottolene shortening. This would prove to be one of the most important days of Long's life. He met the love of his life, Rose McConnell. In April 1913 the two were married at the Gayosa Hotel in Memphis Tennessee. They had a daughter and two sons by 1921.

    [Above: Huey Long and his wife Rose McConnell.]

    Shortly after his marriage Long enrolled at another college, this time Tulane University Law School in 1914. Within one year Long felt that he was ready to successfully pass the bar and petitioned the Louisiana Supreme Court to take the test early, he did and passed. In May of 1915 he received his license to practice law.

    Huey Long wasted no time and had a private practice in Winnfield in 1915. The majority of all his cases were representing poor people, mostly in workers' compensation cases.

    In 1918 Long entered the race to serve on the three-seat Louisiana Railroad Commission and won. Once on the Commission, Long forced utility companies to lower their rates, ordered railroads to expand their service to include small towns, and demanded that Standard Oil quit importing Mexican crude oil and instead use more oil from Louisiana wells. He actually did the things he promised to the people while campaigning... can you imagine that?! No politician in recent memory can claim to have done the same!

    That same year Huey Long invested a substantial amount of money in an oil well that struck oil. The Standard Oil Company refused any of his oil in their pipelines and Long lost his entire investment. This understandably caused Long to have a hatred towards the company for the rest of his days.

    [Above: Huey Long]

    The historian William Ivy Hair described Long's political message as:

    ' ... would be repeated until the end of his days: he was a young warrior of and for the plain people, battling the evil giants of Wall Street and their corporations; too much of America's wealth was concentrated in too few hands, and this unfairness was perpetuated by an educational system so stacked against the poor that (according to his statistics) only fourteen out of every thousand children obtained a college education. The way to begin rectifying these wrongs was to turn out of office the corrupt local flunkies of big business ... and elect instead true men of the people, such as [himself].'

    In 1920, Long campaigned heavily for John M. Parker in the gubernatorial election and was instrumental in getting him elected. Unfortunately Parker refused to declare the state's oil pipelines public utilities and caused a terrible rift in his relationship with Huey Long. Long could hardly believe it when Parker allowed oil companies to assist in writing severance tax laws, led by Long's enemy, Standard Oil's legal team! He was incredibly angry with Parker, rightfully so. In 1921 Parker had the gall to attempt to have Long ousted from the commission. Thankfully he was unsuccessful. Parker was just another greedy, selfish political drone. Our government today is absolutely filled with these degenerate types.

    Two years later Huey Long was the chairman of the commission. He was also the prosecutor of a case that was argued before the Supreme Court on appeal about unfair price increases by the Cumberland Telephone & Telegraph Company. He successfully argued the case and the company was forced to pay back cash refunds to thousands of customers who were overcharged. After the trial Huey Long was praised by Chief Justice William Howard Taft as, 'the most brilliant lawyer who ever practiced' before the United States Supreme Court.'.

    Long didn't win the 1924 gubernatorial election, but he was undeterred and resilient and he ran again in 1928 and won!

    [Above: Huey Long]

    As the Governor of Louisiana, Huey Long was extremely productive. He instituted a modern highway system, along with the tallest capital building in the entire nation. Public works and social programs were on the top of his list to do, and unlike so many of the corrupt and lying politicians we are all used to, he actually did what he said he would. He was elected into the U.S. Senate in 1930, although he didn't assume his seat for two years until 1932. Long was a populist member of the Democratic Party and gained much popularity during the Great Depression. Like other great men of his time, he was very vocal critic of Roosevelt and his New Deal. He was also very vocal about the fact that Standard Oil and Wall Street orchestrated American foreign policy. He came up with an alternative in 1934, it was the Share Our Wealth program. The program was wildly popular. Here are the highlights of the program:

    * Cap personal fortunes at $50 million each — equivalent to about $600 million today (later reduced to $5 - $8 million, or $60 - $96 million today)

    * Limit annual income to one million dollars each (about $12 million today)

    * Limit inheritances to five million dollars each (about $60 million today)

    * Guarantee every family an annual income of $2,000 (or one-third the national average)

    * Free college education and vocational training

    * Old-age pensions for all persons over 60

    * Veterans benefits and healthcare

    * A 30 hour work week

    * A four week vacation for every worker

    *Greater regulation of commodity production to stabilize prices

    Here is a February 23, 1934 radio address about the Share Our Wealth proposal:

  • Huey Long Speech, February 23, 1934

    [Above: Share Our Wealth pin/button]

    1935 saw immense popularity for Huey Long. His Share Our Wealth Society had an astounding 7.5 million members in 27,000 clubs all across the country. His office at the Senate received so many letters from supporters that he had to hire 32 typists in order to write them all back! A national poll found him to be the most attractive man in America, even ahead of the popular Tarzan actor. He was even the third most photographed man in the country, right behind Roosevelt and Charles Lindbergh.

    Apparently the rulers of our corrupt world saw that people agreed with Huey's program and loved the man. He was charismatic, smart and genuine. He was ready to change the country and bring some justice to it. Roosevelt was even stealing some of Long's ideas because he knew he wouldn't be able to compete against him if he didn't, all the while publicly attacking his proposal. Roosevelt did what what the powerful people always do in this country when they feel threatened, he tried to sic the FBI and the IRS on him. He desperately tried to discredit him at every angle.

    [Above: Huey Long]

    As the increasingly popular Huey Long was poised to run for the 1936 presidential campaign, the dark powers in this world put a stop to that. On Sunday, September 8, 1935, Senator Huey Long was murdered at the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge. Long was at the capitol to pass a bill when he was ambushed and shot in the chest by a Jewish man named Carl Weiss. Long's bodyguards shot and killed the murderer and Weiss died instantly. Long however lived for another 31 hours, but unfortunately surgeons failed to save him. Sadly he died and was pronounced dead at 4:10 a.m. on September 10, 1935.

    An incredible loss for the country, people were devastated and 200,000 people attended his funeral. He was buried at the Louisiana State Capitol, the very same capitol building that he had constructed. A statue was erected on his grave in 1940. Huey Long and Robert F. Kennedy are the only U.S. senators to ever be assassinated. He was no longer a threat to Roosevelt, who was re-elected. The same ol' same ol' ridiculously greedy, evil and selfish bastards celebrated the death of a man a million times greater than them. These evil, childlike men continued on, business as usual. Fuck the people, fuck the country, only their petty little bank accounts matter. Justice will come for the great Huey Long, one day. But alas, justice is slow. But it is certain.

    'I'm for the poor man -- all poor men, black and white, they all gotta have a chance.
    They gotta have a home, a job, and a decent education for their children. 'Every man a king' -- that's my slogan.'

    'Anti-Semitism is the word used by the Jews to designate any form of opposition to themselves,
    and they strive persistently to associate irrationality and want of balance with the term.
    They evidently want the world to believe that anyone who opposes Jewish pretensions is more or less mentally deranged.'
    --Denis Fahey

    [Above: Father Denis Fahey.]

  • In the hunt for truth during and after WWII, I naturally came across the wildly popular Father Charles Coughlin. Next, and much more difficult to find, was Father Edward Curran, the so-called 'Father Coughlin of the East'. Third I've found a very special Christian fighter for truth, his name was Father Denis Fahey, and unlike Coughlin and Curran, who seem to be largely forgotten, Father Fahey still has a very active pool of admirers and supporters. For example, his sizable body of books he wrote during his life are still in print and widely available. Numerous articles are online praising him, largely from a Catholic community, a sort of purist Catholic community. One which Fahey himself represented, which got him into trouble with the Catholic Church numerous times, much like Coughlin. While he was nowhere near as popular and well-known as Coughlin, who had millions of listeners at his height, Fahey has proven to have more lasting popularity, probabaly due to his numerous religious/political books. Unfortunately Coughlin didn't write books, instead he concentrated on his newspaper, 'Social Justice'. While the newspaper was very popular at the time, and was done extremely well, they are relatively difficult to find today. Maybe one day some good soul will compile them into a book form and Father Coughlin will have the renaissance that he deserves.

    Like other members of the Church, Father Coughlin was fairly influenced by Fahey and often used references on his radio programs from Fahey's writings. In fact, Coughlin's massive organization, the National Union of Social Justice, which boasted a membership of 7.5 million people (!) and included many African Americans, distributed 350,000 copies of Fahey's 1938 book The Rulers of Russia during the 1930s, free of charge! This no doubt helped to greatly popularize Father Fahey's name and reputation. And while Fahey didn't understand National Socialism, and falsely saw it as putting race as its god, his heart was certainly in the right place.

    [Above: The Rulers of Russia, 1940.]

    Father Denis Fahey (July 3, 1883 – January 21, 1954) was born in Ireland. He began his journey into priesthood at the young age of seventeen, first in France, then in Rome. In 1906 Fahey received a first-class honors degree from the Royal University with 'the highest honors in civil and constitutional history, political economy, and general jurisprudence'

    In 1910 he was ordained and also attained a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas. Two years later in 1912, he received his Ph.D. in Theology from the Gregorian University.

    After returning home to Ireland he was made the Director of Scholastics and Professor of Philosophy at the Irish Province of the Holy Ghost Congregation in Dublin. In an interesting twist, he served as chaplain at an internment camp in Switzerland during World War I. Multilingual, he spoke German, French, and Italian.

    [Above: Father Denis Fahey at a seminary at Kimmage, circa 1950.]

    Father Fahey was very active in politics and recognized communism for the threat that it was, and still is. His books warned of the dangers to his time, and to the future, if the world enemy wasn't stopped. Who was this world enemy? Communism, freemasonry and rabbinic Judaism. The powers-that-be still attack him and his writings to this day, calling him 'deeply anti-Semitic', but this is no revelation, Father Fahey himself prided himself on being 'anti-Semitic'. In his 1953 book 'The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation' he professed that 'every sane thinker must be an anti-Semite'. Father Fahey warned the world that the Jewish forces behind communism were a deadly threat to the world. He said: 'The real forces behind Bolshevism in Russia are Jewish forces, and Bolshevism is really an instrument in the hands of the Jews for the establishment of their Messianic kingdom.' It is an interesting fact that The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation is the only book which Fahey had trouble publishing and getting the 'okay' from his superiors. [Athans, Coughlin–Fahey Connection, pg. 71]

    [Above: The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation, 1953.]

    'Satan aims at the concentration of property in the hands of a few, either nominally in those of the State,
    or in those of the money manipulators. He knows that, given fallen human nature,
    this will lead to the subordination of men to production of material goods and to the treatment of all those not in power as mere individuals, not as persons.
    For this, he favored Liberalism or Individualism and now favors the reaction against Individualism — Collectivism and Communism.'
    --Denis Fahey

    Aside from Fahey's books he also wrote many articles, which appeared around the world. In Canada he was translated into French by the great Adrian Arcand. He also found time to regularly write letters to friends around the globe, such as to the instrumental Brit Nesta Webster.

    In the early 1940s Fahey founded the organization 'Maria Duce' (With Mary as Our Leader), its aim was to fight communism and its cultural Marxism that was infecting Ireland at a rapid pace, including the Irish Republican Army (IRA), which he recognized as a communist organization. In his 1940 book Rulers of Russia Fahey wrote that if the Irish Republican Army were to gain power the result would be that Ireland would be 'trampled under foot in another world-empire ruled from Moscow or Jerusalem'.

    Maria Duce organizaed protests, petitioned politicians, organized letter campaigns and distributed written materials. The organization also had a periodical, 'Fiat' (an authoritative decree or order). Fiat was known for being fearless, naming names and keeping records of those people subverting and poisoning Ireland.

    [Above: An example of FIAT. Click to see a few examples.]

    Among the publications Fahey contributed to was John J. O'Kelly's Catholic Bulletin , where he contributed a twelve-part article in 1928 warning of the stark danger of Freemasonry and other secret societies. Predictably these actions drew the attention of his superiors and in 1942 the Archbishop John Charles McQuaid of Dublin wrote to Cardinal Archbishop of Armagh Joseph MacRory:

    'I have been obliged to watch carefully his remarks upon the Jews. [He] will frequently err in good judgement, and this error will take the shape of excerpts from newspapers as proof of serious statements, unwise generalisations and, where Jews are concerned, remarks capable of rousing the ignorant or malevolent. In his own Congregation, Fr. Fahey is not regarded as a man of balanced judgement. He is a wretched Professor, obscure and laborious.'

    Wow, I have a feeling someone was in the employ of 'someone', don't ya think? In the 1950s Archbishop McQuaid would return to attack Father Fahey's Maria Duce organization, even going so far as to say he opposed the group's association to the name of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Fahey died before replying to this attack and the group disbanded a year later. Ironically McQuaid was a former pupil of Fahey's, but apparently he didn't learn some of the most fundamental truths, which Father Fahey understood so deeply.

    It's interesting that when Archbishop McQuaid wasn't vehemently defending the Jews, he had glowing things to say about Father Fahey, describing him as:

    'a most exemplary priest, of deep sanctity, and a man who will very generously sacrifice his time and health to help anyone: not a small sign of genuine holiness.'

  • Nearly lost to history, here is a special treat for you dear viewer. This is a publication done by the German Consulate in New York that was published bi-weekly. These were released by what was called the German Library of Information. This first publication is from August 26, 1940 and is called 'Facts in Review'. As you will read, it contains very interesting information on Britain's diabolical scheming against Scandinavia, Norway in particular.

    As you will note, this issue is Vol. II. - No. 35, so this is only a glimpse of this very rare publication. You will also note, on the bottom of the picture is the page number 405. So there were A LOT of issues lost, perhaps forever.

    I stumbled across these rarities in my stamp collecting duties and snatched them up instantly. While researching the various Americans who became broadcasters in Germany during the Third Reich I knew all about the radio show, 'Germany Calling', broadcast on a powerful signal from Germany and listenable in the USA. But I wasn't aware that they published information and radio schedules in the USA! I'm unsure when the publication began, but it most certainly ended when the USA was drawn into WWII. As I said, these issues are incredibly rare, and to be able to see the envelopes used to send them is a special treat, especially for us philatelists.

    The next mailing, for September 29 - October 5, 1940, is a radio program for 'Germany Calling' the famed 'Daily Broadcast from Berlin with Directional Antenna to North America'. This is very interesting because we get to see the work schedules of the brave men and women who left the safety of the USA to serve mankind in Germany. They knew what we know now, in 2022 and beyond, that Adolf Hitler's Germany and his worldwide allies were this planet's hope for freedom and truth. It is not treason to fight tyranny and an America which had been occupied by evil and treacherous forces. As the founders of the USA told us, it is duty.

    [Above: Germany Calling - September 29 - October 5, 1940.]

    [Above: Germany Calling envelope.]

    First, before we get deeper into the particulars, let's look at these Americans who broadcasted for the Third Reich. In no particular order (click their names to read a profile):

    Herbert John Burgman
    (whose radio persona was 'Joe Scanlon')

    Robert Henry Best
    (whose radio personas were 'BBB' and 'Mr. Guess Who?)

    Douglas Chandler
    (whose radio persona was 'Paul Revere')

    Iva Toguri
    (whose radio personas were 'Tokyo Rose', and sometimes 'Orphan Ann'. Toguri took part in a show called 'The Zero Hour')

    Max Otto Koischwitz
    (whose radio personas were 'Mr. OK' (from his initials) and Doctor Anders. He did a radio show called 'O.K. Speaking')

    Ezra Loomis Pound
    (Ezra Pound broadcasted hundreds of radio shows out of Italy)

    Frederick W. Kaltenbach
    (Kaltenbach did a show called 'Letters to Iowa' and also did a radio show with another American, Max Otto Koischwitz, called 'Jim and Johnny')

    Rita Luisa Zucca
    (whose radio personas were 'Sally' or 'Axis Sally', she did a program called 'Jerry's Front Calling' or simply 'Jerry's Front'.
    Rita worked for the Italians first and later the Germans)

    Mildred Elizabeth Gillars
    (by far the most famous of the group, whose radio personas were 'Midge at the Mike' or more famously 'Axis Sally'. She did a show called Home Sweet Home, among others.)

    Donald Day
    [Work in progress!]

    Edward Leo Delaney
    (whose radio persona was 'E. D. Ward')
    [Work in progress!]

    Jane Anderson
    (whose radio persona was 'Georgia Peach')
    [Work in progress!]

    Constance Drexel
    [Work in progress!]

    Now let's have a look at the program above:

    First we see a broadcast by 'Lord Haw-Haw'. This was, of course, the famed British patriot William Joyce. Next we see a show by Fred Kaltenbach, then 'O.K. Speaking', who we know to be Max Otto Koischwitz. Kaltenbach later does a show called 'Anglo-American Relations During the World-War'. Koischwitz's 'O.K. Speaking' show is played numerous times on the schedule, I'm unsure if this is the same program rebroadcasted, or a different show each time. Later on in the schedule Koischwitz does another broadcast using his full name.

    Next, we see Koischwitz and Kaltenbach do a show together called 'Jim and Johnny'. You will also note a guy named Hans Fritsche does shows on the schedule. This was one of the most famous broadcasters of National Socialist Germany. It is said every German recognized his voice. He was also the 'Ministerialdirektor at the Propagandaministerium'. After the war he was not only one of the last people in Adolf Hitler's bunker, he was also considered a 'Major Offender' by the Allies after the war.

    [Above: Handsome, intelligent and charismatic, August Franz Anton Hans Fritzsche was born on April 21, 1900 and died of cancer on September 27, 1953. His commitment, diligence and servitude to the cause and to his people will never be forgotten. Click the image for more!]

    The next mailing, for November 3 - November 9, 1940, is another radio program for 'Germany Calling'. We see Lord Haw-Haw again first, trying with all his might to awaken a sleeping Britain. You may notice a strange German word on the broadcast schedule 'Struwwelpeter'. This is an 1845 German children's book, it means something like 'Slovenly Peter'. Even though I've never heard of this, it is widely recognized to be one of the most popular children's book ever. It was even published in English by the world famous Mark Twain in 1935. We see that the great boxer Max Schmeling is interviewed. They like to call Schmeling a 'Nazi-racist boxer' but in reality he was a lifelong friend to the black boxer Joe Lewis. Lewis was poor later in life, but Schmeling repeatedly sent him money and was even a pallbearer at Lewis' funeral, which he also partially paid for.

    On the 4th of November we see radio shows by Kaltenbach and Koischwitz, but we also see 'E.D.Ward' (a play on his name 'Edward'), which is the alias of Edward Delaney. Delaney is perhaps the most complex of all the American broadcasters. His life was as colorful and lively as anyone of his age. He was also the only broadcaster never convicted, although the USA government charged him right alongside the others. Why did he go free? Out of all of Delaney's broadcasts, they could not prove he worked for the Third Reich AFTER the entry of the USA into WWII. None of his broadcasts spoke of anything specific that could help the investigators pin down a date. Although Delaney's broadcasts were played into WWII, he claimed they were merely rebroadcasting old recordings.

    This offers a lot to one's imagination. Did Delaney do this purposefully, to protect himself from vengeance of the American government should things go bad for Germany? I certainly wouldn't put it past him. Delaney was incredibly intelligent and worldly. I won't get anymore into his complex life here, since his profile will cover that.

    [Above: Germany Calling - November 3 - November 9, 1940.]

    [Above: Germany Calling envelope.]

    This next schedule I found online, and is from April 13 - April 19, 1941. We see a new show called 'America Asks -- Germany Answers', which sounds interesting. Lord Haw-Haw is still working hard to spread the truth. We also see Kaltenbach now doing his popular 'Dear Harry' show. This was him doing a show that mimicked him talking to an old friend back in Iowa (midwest USA, seen as the heartland of America and wholesome). Its aim was to be more down-to-earth and intimate. Edward Delaney is still with us with his 'E.D. Ward' persona. There is a show called 'Listen and Judge for Yourself'. Imagine that... people using their own brains to judge something, instead of the television or media filling their heads with lies. This show proved to be way too much to ask of Americans...

    [Above: Germany Calling - November 3 - November 9, 1940 (reverse side of sheet).]

    This schedule begins like the others before it, starting off with Lord Haw-Haw's pleas to a deaf England. Next we read of a new broadcaster -- Jane Anderson, the 'Georgia Peach'. And then, another new name -- Paul Revere, who we know is Douglas Chandler. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, fined $10,000 and lost his U.S. citizenship for daring to speak out against the Weltenfeind (World Enemy). Kaltenbach and Koischwitz are still at it, as is Delaney. This ends with an interesting 'Girls Who Do Their Part' segment.

  • During WWII there were many diverse peoples and fighting forces from Africa on the side of the Axis. Here is a look into Abissinia, better known as Abyssinia, better known as Ethiopia...

    [Above: This book says:

    'Terra Paese
    Senza Senza
    Fame Tempo'
    (Earth Country
    Without Without
    Hunger Time).

    This 1928 book by E.H. Schrenzel has 90 illustrations and was published in Berlin in 1928 and Italy in 1935. It is described as:

    'Abyssinia, to which the eyes of the world are turned today, is still largely a closed and mysterious country,
    because few have been able to visit and study it freely. This book allows us to enter it,
    to peer into the intimacy of its life, with the guidance of an intelligent and sincere interpreter.
    From the fabulous antiquity of its origins and the constancy of sleepy traditions
    to today's reality of its inhabitants, customs, crops, religious and erotic superstitions, Schrenzel paints,
    with admirable confidence and evidence, the strange country still shrouded in an atmosphere of unexplored promise.
    And his testimony as a traveler and scholar acquires in our eyes a special merit,
    for not being dominated by preconceptions but inspired by disinterested and rigorous objectivity.']

    The scholar Abba Jobir Abba Dula was the sultan of Ethiopia. He was a staunch ally of fascist Italy and was even imprisoned in the early 1930s for working with the Italians. When Italy invaded the country in 1937 they released their old ally and gave him the task of leading the country. He worked extensively with Italy and helped them hunt Allied agents with the country. During WWII Abba Jobir recorded radio broadcasts to the Arabic-speaking world, in an attempt to educate the listeners to the Anglo-Jewish threat. In 1942, following the Italian defeat, Abba Jobir was imprisoned once more, but was later pardoned by Haile Selassie I.

    [Above: Laura Ingalls.]

  • Laura Houghtaling Ingalls (December 14, 1893 – January 10, 1967) was an astounding American pilot who won the coveted Harmon Trophy (best aviatrix). But to earn her place of honor on these pages she performed even greater tasks: she risked her fame and freedom to support Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany. In case you're wondering why you've never heard of her, well that's why. They've all but buried her name and legacy, wishing she would be forgotten.

    She was born in Brooklyn, New York, a descendant of one of the early pilgrims to America, who arrived in New Amsterdam on May 9, 1661. Educated in the best private schools, she even studied in Vienna and Paris. After graduation she studied nursing in New York. However, she decided it wasn't for her and later danced in ballet and vaudeville.

    Maybe you've heard the name Laura Ingalls before? Well our aviatrix was actually a distant cousin of Little House on the Prairie's Laura Ingalls Wilder. You might remember her from her popular series of books or television series. Her books have recently been banned from some libraries for being 'racist' due to her description of American Indians (I've read her books, they were not 'racist', but a product of the time. Her mother was fearful of American Indians and her dog didn't like them. Her father also sung a 'racist' song as well). The American Library Association even went so far as renaming its Laura Ingalls Wilder Lifetime Achievement Award to the Children's Literature Legacy Award in 2018. They've actually censored parts of her books as well.

    But back to our Laura Ingalls. She was very inspired by her mother growing up, whom she described as

    'she possessed the trait I find most exciting in the American character... the ability to hurdle difficulties and achieve the reputedly impossible. I grew up under such influence.'

    In 1928, at age 25, she learned to fly a plane at Roosevelt Field, New York. Within two years she was setting records in acrobatic flying. In 1929 she attended Universal Flying School, obtaining a Limited Commercial license that same year, and by the next year she obtained a Transport license. In 1930 she was the sole female in her graduating class of Universal Flying School Transport course, where she scored a whopping 98/100. She wasted no time and immediately began making and breaking records and winning awards. One record-breaking feat she performed 344 loops, breaking the last record of only 47 loops! 1930 was a busy year for her, she even established the world barrel-roll record for men and women of 714 rolls! A little later she won $800 for coming in third in the Women's Dixie Derby from Washington, D.C. to Chicago, Illinois. 1930 would close with another record, this time she established the first women's transcontinental round trip record between Roosevelt Field, New York and Grand Central Air Terminal, Glendale, California.

    [Above: Laura Ingalls.]

    In 1934 she won the coveted Harmon Trophy after flying from Mexico to Chile, over the Andes Mountains to Rio de Janeiro, to Cuba and then to Floyd Bennett Field in New York, marking her the first flight over the Andes by an American woman. Among her pioneering aviation records:

    Longest solo flight by a woman (17,000 miles).
    First solo flight by a woman from North to South America.
    First solo flight around South America by man or woman.
    First complete flight by a land plane around South America by a man or woman.
    First American woman to fly the Andes solo.

    In September 1939, she flew over the capital, Washington, D.C., and dropped anti-intervention pamphlets! She was quickly arrested for 'violating White House airspace', but was soon released. After Germany defeated France in 1940 she made contact at the German embassy with Ulrich von Gienanth, who was a diplomat and Gestapo representative in the United States, also serving as second secretary of the German Embassy. She wanted to find a way to help Germany and suggested that she could make a solo flight to Europe, and with the ensuing media attention promote National Socialist Germany. For reasons unknown, Von Gienanth told her it would be better if she stayed in the USA and worked with the America First Committee.

    She took his advice and soon gave speeches for the America First Committee, where she referred to the USA as a 'lousy democracy' and even gave stiff arm salutes to the spectators. Von Gienanth was impressed and even praised her oratorical skills. Much of the material she proudly based on her studies of such books and pamphlets as Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf, My New Order and Germany and the Jewish Question. She also found inspiration in another famous woman of the day, Elizabeth Dilling.

    [Above: Ulrich von Gienanth, 1954 and Elizabeth Dilling.]

    In April 1941 she wrote an unknown German official, defiantly saying:

    'Some day I will shout my triumph to a great leader and a great people... Heil Hitler!'

    Sometime after the German declaration of war on December 11, 1941, she was given a list of contacts from von Gienanth and was arrested shortly after. In violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938 she was charged with failing to register with the government as a paid German agent. Unsurprisingly, the FBI testified that they had kept her under surveillance for several months. Predictably, she was convicted and sentenced to eight months to two years in prison on February 20, 1942. She was released from prison on October 5, 1943 after serving nearly her full sentence -- 20 months. However, she would remain on probation for an unknown amount of time.

    She was undaunted and prison had not lessened her zeal to fight for what was right. A few months into her freedom, she valiantly said of the Normandy landings:

    'This whole invasion is a power lust, blood drunk orgy in a war which is unholy and for which the U.S. will be called to terrible accounting... They [the Germans] fight the common enemy. They fight for independence of Europe—independence from the Jews. Bravo!'

    In July 1944 she was arrested at the Mexican border with her suitcase containing so-called 'seditious materials'. The tyrannical Roosevelt government barred her from entering Mexico, yet mysteriously did not charge her. That's enough to spell out her innocence. In the 1950s she applied for a presidential pardon for her erroneous charge, but was denied and multiple times after.

    One of the replies said that she had been:

    'special value of the Nazi propaganda machine'

    I can't think of a better compliment.

    This great woman passed into glorious history on January 10, 1967, in Burbank, California. She was 73 years old.

    [Above: This photo was taken by Heinrich Hoffmann (whom would later become Hitler's official photographer) in May 1919. It is of 'Mohamed Husen' in Munich. Husen was a highly decorated officer who served in East Africa with the Germans and later with a Freikorps unit. The inscription on the photo reads in part 'To the battles: Munich. A loyal East African fighter.' Mohamed Husen is shown here while working with the 'Lettow-Vorbeck Freikorps' acting as a chauffeur. He is what is called an 'askari' (An askari was a local soldier from Africa serving in the armies of the European colonial powers, particularly in East Africa, Northeast Africa, and Central Africa. The word was not only used by the Germans, but also the French, English, Italian, Urdu and Portuguese).]

    Mohamed Husen (birth name Majub) was born in Tanzania (German East Africa) in 1905. At the age of nine Husen volunteered to fight with Germany against his country's invaders in WWI. After the war he was given combat pay by Germany for his deceased father who was killed in action during the war.

    Sometime later he found a job as a steward in a German ship. This job enabled him to travel to Germany, first to Hamburg and later to Berlin.

    During this tumultuous time he joined the revolutionary 'Lettow-Vorbeck Freikorps' acting as a chauffeur. Sometime during this time he earned German citizenship and later got a job in a circus as an entertainer. In his spare time he also taught Swahili to German government civil servants and diplomats, who would later use these language skills in Africa.

    [Above: Mohamed Husen]

    After Adolf Hitler came to power Husen began appearing in German films and proved to be a popular actor. He appeared in eleven films from 1934 to 1941.

    A London Guardian news article reported about him:

    ' the mid-1930s, he was dressing up in military gear and appearing at rallies in front of National Socialist banners.'

    Not much is known further about Husen. It is reported that he had a wife while in Germany and later children. Reports say that at least one of his children died in Allied Terror Bombings and possible his wife as well.

    One thing is clear: Husen's story is another piece of proof that the National Socialists were not the racists their enemies teach that they were.

    • In WWI the askari were led by their most beloved German leader Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck. Lettow-Vorbeck was a general in the Imperial German Army and the commander of its forces in German East Africa. For four long years, with a force that never exceeded 14,000 (3,000 Germans and 11,000 Africans), he held in check a much larger force of 300,000 British, Belgian, and Portuguese troops. His loyal troops and he endured hunger, malaria and the elements in what has been described by Edwin Palmer Hoyt as 'the greatest single guerrilla operation in history, and the most successful.'

    Lettow-Vorbeck's force was undefeated in the field. His fluency in the Swahili language earned the respect and admiration of his African soldiers. He appointed black officers, proclaiming to his men what he believed in his heart:
    'we are all Africans here'.

    [Above: Poster bearing the image of General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck on horseback leading African soldiers. Text at top reads 'Colonial War Funds Donation'.]

    • The historian Charles Miller stated 'It is probable that no white commander of the era had so keen an appreciation of the African's worth not only as a fighting man but as a man.'

    After the armistice of WWI Lettow-Vorbeck's army surrendered to the British. The British repatriated the white German soldiers but confined the askaris in filthy concentration camps. General von Lettow-Vorbeck refused to leave until he had won promises of decent treatment and early release for his black troops.

    General von Lettow-Vorbeck brought back some of his askari soldiers to Germany where they served in his brand of Freikorps.

    [Above: Postcard with the picture of General Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck and Governor Dr. Heinrich Schnee.]

    'In 1953 in Dar Es Salam (Tanzania-ed.) I wanted to greet my old Askari. At mid-day I arrived at the local market place and I was surrounded by over 400 Askari, they had tears in their eyes and covered my hands in kisses. Around open campfires the Askari talked all through the night and they said that I had shaken the hand of every one of them, they said it is something that the English never did'.

    'The Wehrwolf movement represents a minority. Only the best of our people belong to it.
    It is more worthwhile and more promising of success to fight with a hundred determined men and women than to have a thousand [nominal] members.'

    -Radio Wehrwolf, April 7, 1945.

    Hermann Löns was a life long nature and animal lover who found immortality through his beloved Der Wehrwolf novel. Although he wrote a handful of other books, none are so well known and loved as Der Wehrwolf. To this day over seven million books by Löns have been printed. He was also a beloved poet, in 1911 he released a collection of poems. One of these poems, the 'Matrosenlied' (Sailors' Song) has the chorus 'Denn wir fahren gegen Engelland' (For we are sailing against England), was put to music by Herms Niel and was one of the most-sung German military songs of World War II!

    But Hermann Löns would never see the fame and wealth that largely escaped him during his tumultuous life. At the age of 48, after first being rejected for ill health, he managed to join the German Army and fight in WWI. On the dark day of September 26, 1914 the great patriot and naturalist fell. Löns died just three weeks after enlisting on September 3. Of the 120 brave men in his unit only about two dozen survived an assault on a French position at Loivre near Reims in France.

    [Above: Hermann Löns (August 29, 1866 – September 26, 1914)]

    [Above: Third Reich era copy of Der Wehrwolf. By 1945 the Wehrmacht alone sold more than 865,000 copies of the book! This made him one of the most successful authors in Germany at the time.]

    • Löns was a poet whose poems often dealt with the natural world. He was a pioneer of nature conservationism. In fact, he was co-initiator of the Heideschutzpark at Wilseder Berg which later grew into the famous Naturpark Lüneburger Heide (Lüneburg Heath Nature Park), which was the first nature reserve in Germany.

    [Above: This copy of Der Wehrwolf was printed with proceeds going to help needy soldiers in the Wehrmacht (left). On the right is one of the many editions for soldiers to read at the front.]

    • Löns was buried on the battlefield where he fell. In 1934 his remains were located and reburied in Germany. Today there are some 113 memorials to Löns in Germany, plus another eight in Austria and 19 in other countries. There are also 247 streets and roads in Germany which have been named after him. Twelve schools also bear his name and even a stadium.

    • Athena is the goddess of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strategic warfare, mathematics, strength, strategy, the arts, crafts, and skill.
    Most interesting in this context, Athena is a devoted companion of heroes and is the patron goddess of heroic endeavor. She was called 'Minerva' by the Romans and Athena by the Greeks.

    Here is a quote from the 1930s book 'Die Kunst im Dritten Reich':

    'Athena is the goddess of war and art. She personifies the strong, fresh spiritual strength of the human being. She stands freely, upright. She recognizes, measures, and uses the strength of all things in the victorious battle with the enemy and in the conquest of nature for the creation of art. The picture of the goddess is the fitting expression of the heroic character of the Führer and the National Socialist movement and, in the deepest sense, of the art the Führer wants. An art form for which the artist has to fight in a serious and concentrated working procedure so that he may receive a blessing from it.'
