Sean Spicer’s faux pas: a little historical context, please

M. Jaggers


First of all, one can hardly call Sean Spicer the most effective White House Press Secretary: he lacks the one quality a spokesman for the President needs; namely, he is not articulate.  He bumbles and stumbles over his words to an extent I have not witnessed by previous press secretaries, who have been nothing if not slick and slippery in their repartee with journalists.  To give a concrete example, Spicer pronounces “nuclear” as “nucuIar” á la George W. Bush.  I sense that he is fluent in certain matters, such as the economy perhaps; but otherwise, he is an ill-fated choice for the job, a bad omen of sorts in the young Trump administration which is itself a mix of successes and confounding missteps.

That said, we should give Spicer some credit for referring to a relatively overlooked fact of World War II history —  that Hitler declined to use chemical weapons (in the context of warfare, to be very clear!).  Spicer doubtless thought that he had a sure winner with the media and political class: comparing anyone to Hitler is surely the ultimate insult in today’s intellectual and political climate. He probably didn’t think this one through very well, but what he was probably thinking was that World War II did not see poison gas being used in battle between armies as it was in the trench warfare of World War I. This clearly was an argumentum ad Hitlerum  that went terribly wrong.

Spicer made this point in trying to underline the dastardliness of Bashar al-Assad in his supposed use of chemical weapons “against his own people.”   “We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II,” Spicer explained, “You know, you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons.”

He was asked later in the press conference by a reporter to clarify his provocative comment, to which Spicer responded, “When it comes to sarin gas, [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing.”  Naturally, from the perspective of our MSM, this was a horrifyingly obtuse explanation.  One could infer from this that while Hitler used gas on Jews in the concentration camps, perhaps these after all were not “his own people”; and in that sense, we can say that Hitler did not drop chemical weapons on his domestic opponents in the manner that Assad is alleged to have done.  

Hitler’s decision not to use chemical weapons could have been due to his own experience suffering from a gas attack in World War I, or it could have been due to fear of retaliation from the Allies (though he never otherwise blanched from scorched-earth warfare); or finally, it could have been from some sense of chivalry or morality, which is a characterization I’m sure some will find ironic.

And what is even more ironic is that Winston Churchill, a man who has now been deified, was perfectly ready to use chemical weapons on the Germans, had the Germans succeeded in landing an invasion of England (codenamed Operation Sea Lion).  Churchill felt that it was fair game for the British to use chemical weapons to defend their own people if necessary, and therefore actually had less moral scruples than Hitler himself in this regard.  After all, Hitler was in a perfectly analogous situation when the allies invaded Normandy, and pushed on into Germany.  Alas, in the summer and fall of 1940, the Germans could not master the air in the Battle of Britain, which they considered a prerequisite for an invasion of England; and were therefore saved a rather savage attack on their landing armies. From Operation Sea Lion:

The seriousness of RAF planning for gas attack against the invader was reflected in its establishment, in September 1940, of a specific committee to deal with chemical warfare, which displayed the ruthlessness that galvanized Britain at this time.  At the first meeting, the use of phosgene was discussed, which one officer described as ‘a very suitable weapon against the German civilian population’, particularly because so few German citizens, in contrast to the British, had gas masks. By this stage, as the committee was told, the RAF had worked out a thorough anti-invasion scheme, known as the ‘Gas Plan’.  This involved sixteen squadrons of aircraft in Bomber Command that, in an emergency, were designated for duty in spraying gas or dropping bombs on the invader. (199)

As for Churchill himself, “[he] made a decisive intervention at the end of the month.  In a memo to the Chiefs of Staff, he urged a rapid increase in the production of chemical weapons, as well as the development of further plans for their deployment” (197).   Other British military officials felt that the use of chemical weapons on a German invading force would be a “departure from our principles and traditions.”

I don’t describe this in a spirit of moral condemnation of the British necessarily, but merely to demonstrate this historical fact which is so dissonant with the good and evil dynamic with which the Allies and National Socialist Germany are generally viewed; and of course, to demonstrate the probity of Spicer’s off the cuff statement.

Perhaps this inconvenient historical fact is what has got the Jewish activist groups so up in arms; the Anne Frank Center has called for Spicer’s dismissal, which seems a bit heavy handed.  Many now feel that Spicer was somehow denying the Holocaust, or at least forgetting to mention it.  He has of course issued a written apology:

In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic [sic] of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers. Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable.

In his spoken comments he continued in his mea culpa,My goal now and then was to stay focused on Assad and I should of [sic] and I’ll continue to make sure I stay in my lane when I talk about that.”  Notice that “should of” instead of “should have.”  This is the linguistic sloppiness to which I have referred.

I have a weird habit of watching these press conferences; there’s something about the dynamic of the hapless Spicer withstanding the virulent hatred of the mainstream press that I find simply entrancing.  The scorn in the tone of the journalists’ questions and the hostile glow in their eyes is so inappropriate that I somehow cannot look away! While watching this particular press conference, I was indeed pretty surprised during this moment — before it had become the “next big controversy.”  My eyebrows were raised: did someone just mention something non-defamatory about Hitler?

What made it all the more astounding is that the Press Secretary is a positon which is obviously politically sensitive, where every word is parsed.  Again, Sean Spicer is not quite the man to parse his words carefully enough for the vultures in the Lügenpresse who are waiting to pounce.  This latest stumble, though interesting in the ways outlined above, almost comically demonstrates his unfitness for this position.  Not because his comment was necessarily offensive, but because he does not have the proper skill-set for this job.  Given how admittedly inarticulate Trump himself is, the last thing the president needs is a non-eloquent spokesman.

But to step back, let’s not forget that Mr. Spicer’s interesting comparison of Hitler and Assad was made in the service of justifying hostilities against Syria, which, to all appearances, is a conflict perpetuated for the furthering of Israeli/neocon/Jewish interests.  That is certainly not a noble cause, yet it adds another layer of irony insofar as the very interests he was attempting to serve are now the ones attacking him.

        One thing is for sure, their professionality in deceit is beyond reproach. They play the fiddle in deception, and paint a completely different picture of events, this includes the person Donald Trump, that it will deceive even well informed and experienced persons.

        It is sickening to only notice afterward how one has been tricked and deceived. Even more concerning – have we now really passed the last chance to save global white interests from a slow decline into irrevelance on the world stage? We will not be alive anymore to see how the endgame unfolds, but then again it is also true that the revolution eventually swallows its own children.

      Spicer was clearly referring to the use of chemical weapons in war and should have brazened it out.
      If I’d found myself in his place I would have affected mock astonishment: “What! You mean the Nazis gassed millions of Jews? You learn something new every day. Now if I was in charge of Education I’d insist they teach our kids all about that event.”

        It’s true.
        The British Nationality Act (1948) elected to give most members of the now-defunct British Empire the right to settle in the UK.
        It wasn’t expected that there would be very many takers. Wrong.
        When the politicians realized their error they then settled on the notion that immigrants would no doubt want to return to their home nations when they’d saved their pennies. Wrong.
        When it became obvious that the new immigrants were staying permanently the elite decided that that also was no real problem as the new arrivals would be gradually assimilated into the general population. Wrong.
        As it became clear that many migrants (especially Muslims) were congregating in self-selected ghettos and retaining their old values, the new fallback position was “multiculturalism”. What did ethnic diversity matter as all cultures have equal value. How wrong can you be?
        Finally, we’ve arrived at today’s situation where politicians are realizing how troublesome and divisive “diversity” can be and we have talk of teaching “British values” (ie, politically correct, liberal values) in all schools.
        It will end in tears.

          @Right_On It already has, the countless tears of a sacrifical mass of raped and despoiled children and, for the grown-ups, everyday events such as this at Stratford, East London near the 2012 Games facilities:

          https://youtu.be/eK7bc9_Dtus
          “Brutal Fight in Stratford London ” (header followed by more accurate description: “Two Whites Males knocked out in London Stratford”).

          Of course this is only the begining of the ‘end’ which could well last many generations of far worse horrors unless firm military defensive action is taken.

          All this talk of ‘experiments’, the ‘realisation’ of the elite and pandering to cute notions of innocent fecklessness among them now just angers me. The apparat know and always knew exactly what they were up to with this genocidal assault on the English; its stages were evidently meticulously planned in some detail, even to include the exportation post-WW2 of young Whites at cut-price fares to Australia, Canada, New Zealand to thin the herd and give grounds for arguing on the need for imported ‘talent’ back home.

          I now think it wholly reasonable to look for causes primarily in the inexhaustible thirst for revenge a thousandfold of Jewry. The expulsion of the Jews in 1290 was not the sorry result of a mysterious inborn ‘prejudice’ but the climax of years of suffering by the general population and of their petitioning the nascent Parliament / King’s Council for relief, as described in among others, D’Blossiers TOVEY’s “Anglia Judaica” (1738) pp. 232-240. But to the Jewish body politic, this is deemed an inexplicable Act of State-Hate demanding retribution.

          In reality, King Edward I did not seize the initiative, he had revenues to lose and his role is nowhere as simple as it is made out to be.

          Hilaire Belloc’s “The Jews”, Chapter 10 also provides much background on why “Merrie England” seems to be considered in febrile minds a worthy object of ritual retribution, even at the risk of self-loss (The Scorpion and the Frog).

      Given that Spicer’s genuine inadequacies and failings could take half an hour to list, Mr. Jaggers’s insistence here on chastising him for the “offense” of speaking English as any American would is, at the least, just a bit silly.

      I pass over in silence the larger fact that had Spicer—and by extension Trump—doubled down on the simple contention that Hitler ≠ Satan rather than buckle abjectly at the knees in a manner that Uriah Heep might have found embarrassing, the Trump administration would have regained precious lost ground with both his voters and those, including most TOO writers and commenters, whose hearts have sunk as he behaves ever more like Hillary Lite.

        Thanks, Pierre! Well, I won’t win any points around here, but I don’t find Spicer all that horrible in the performance of his duties. There are 2 considerations for a prezident’s spokesman – content and style. Let us not expect him to be other than what he is – a talking head hired to follow the party line. What are the chances that he’d still be drawing breath if he had told Blitzer, “Look, you know damn well what I meant, it was just a slip of the tongue, so let it go.” He knows what the risks are; his delivery may not be mellifluous, but I think he knows the costs of not getting with the program.

        As to style, I find his non-oily, just-plain-folks conversational style of talking a refreshing change. Because the media, and anyone with 2 brains to rub together, knows that this is just theater.

          Yes, indeed. Ultimately, Spicer’s failings are whatever Trump’s are.

          Trump may be thought of as a play that the present MSM “reviewers” would never laud, whether Spicer or anyone else was its featured performer. Still, it’s a pity that the play that’s now formally opened must be judged to be far different from what its out-of-town tryouts portended—to some among us, anyway.

    One other historical note. David Irving points out that Germany was far ahead of Britain (and every other country) in chemical weapons. It developed the nerve agent Sarin in 1939. Germany also developed Tabun before the war. The British had nothing comparable.

    The use of gas warfare was prohibited by treaties that both Great Britain and Germany signed. Maybe that is why Hitler didn’t use it. Despite these treaties Churchill was saying to his people they should be used against Germany. His own people were telling him that Germany would retaliate.

      Only according to some Americans. The US didn’t even use chemical weapons until after WW I. You need a chemists to do that and Germany’s chemical industry and physicists were the world’s leaders, dominating their fields. That is why nerve agents like Sarin and Tabun were developed in Germany and why every leading scientist on the Manhattan Project (to build the atomic bomb) was either from Germany or went their to study.

      The most important development in the history of chemistry is often considered the Haber-Bosch process, developed by chemists Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch. If not for these two chemists, WW I probably would have ended a few months after it started. The process provided Germany with a source of ammonia for the production of explosives, compensating for the Allied trade blockade on Chilean saltpeter. Haber also headed Germany’s chemical weapons development.

      Physicists Robert Oppenheimer (American) and the Hungarian Edward Teller both studied and received their PHDS in Germany. The German Otto Hahn performed nuclear fission in 1938 (receiving the Nobel Prize for it) prompting the “pacifist” Albert Einstein (a Jew from Germany) to write a letter to FDR urging he have an atomic bomb program started so the bombs could be dropped on Germany.

      The Haber-Bosch process is also used for the production of fertilizer which has enabled the world’s population to expand by several billion since the early 20th century.

      • April 13, 2017 - 3:24 pm | Permalink

        All this is a bit naive. The most important material is about Oppenheimer and Teller, both Jews, and both involved in the fraud of ‘nuclear weapons’ which enabled them to fleece gullible Americans of vast amounts of money and resources. Teller was an industrial chemist (from memory) so the Madison Avenue/Manhattan fraud was well adapted to his minor skill level. Various jews were alleged to have achieved fission, but the evidence is as convincing as the moon landing. The Haber process for nitrogen fixing was a remarkable achievement, and used for fertilisers (nitrogen being difficult to fix; its compounds are often explosive), and he was remembered for that rather than fantasies supplied by the author, ‘Peter’. OPs are hard to assess, because of secrecy and deliberate lies by ‘Peter’ and his type. One of the weaknesses of the US is the idleness and purchasability of ‘scientists’ there. I hope, though not very optimistically, this may change.

          REREVISIONIST: I found Peter’s information very valuable and to a great extent new to me; the very purpose of this site.

          I find it merely disgusting at this point, that you need to call those with whom you differ by names, with some sort of innate requirement to be right in the end. And that goes even without discussing the epithet of liar, attributed to Peter.

          By your measure one could call you a liar when it comes to your continuous denial of the A-bomb. A couple of articles back I asked you to indeed take the [ lacking ] time to prove your contention that the A-bomb is a mere figment of the imagination to fleece the US taxpayer and that the Americans were more advanced in aeronautical engineering even though the Soviet dog Laika was the first living being in space in 1957, followed by Gagarin, who preceded Glenn.

          Your argument reminded me of the comedic film Pussycat. Peter O’Toole played the sex-obsessed patient of Dr. Fassbaender, Peter Sellers, his psychiatrist. Fassbaender, eroticized by O’Toole’s tales goes to a strip joint. O’Toole comes in after Fassbaender and asks how he F. knew of this joint. ” I followed you ” replied Fassbaender. ” If you followed me how come you were here before me ” ?

          ” I FOLLOWED YOU VERY QUICKLY ” !

          This variation on reasoning don’t work too well in this milieu.

        Oppenheimer was a Jew and Soviet sympathizer who deeply regretted that the A-bomb did not get to be used on Germany. Teller was also a Jew but endeared himself to the president and to conservatives by his loyalty which included testifying against Oppenheimer. This caused him to be ostracized to a degree by other physicists. We know now that it was all too easy to get western physicists to leak to the Soviet Union. The Rosenbergs’ contributions were minimal, but not for want of effort, according to one post-Soviet source.

          The fabled ADL’s : “… your staff, and anyone at the White House who may need to learn more about the Holocaust “.
          ” Anyone ” who is anyone at the White House and some Congressional Caucuses, will most likely have run the gamut of Jewish cultural, political and religious education already: not in need of reiteration here. Also its mandatory public school Holocaust education curriculum.

          The Anne Frank Foundation also chimed in against Spicer, rather than come to grips with its very own discovery, that some malign neighbor did not report the Franks to the Dutch German-run Police, searching for Jews, but that the Police was investigating the forging of life-sustaining food-allocation stamps, as well as black-marketeering in genuine ones and those allotted to dead people or altogether invented people; traced to Otto Frank’s sales personnel.

          Rerevisionist characterized Teller as a [mere] industrial chemist. This alleged common chemist managed to design the far more devastating Hydrogen Bomb.

          The Rosenbergs, though deserving of their executions, were merely the fall guys to obfuscate the almost exclusively Jew-run, extensive nuclear espionage ring in the US.

          Major Jordan, second in charge at the Montana Airbase, from where most of the hundreds of Lend-Lease aircraft started,
          flying north, then west to Russia, wrote in his diary of hundreds of stuffed and diplomatically sealed suitcases, transported in these aircraft, filled with patents and complete designs of entire factory complexes. One such freight plane stopped over in Alberta to take uranium aboard, for Soviet research.

          When Jordan objected to the Base Commander about the sensitivity of these “exports” he would be referred to the New York City based senior Soviet Purchasing Agent, who would regularly have Jordan’s concerns overridden by Washington; itself awash in {{{American}}} Soviet agents and sympathizers.

          When the shit hit the fan, the Rosenbergs were thrown under the bus as the only guilty parties, as usual, by a Jewish community expertly feigning surprise and disgust with these ‘exceptional’ Jewish renegades, and expressing their loyalty to ” OUR WESTERN COMMUNITY OF VALUES”, AS THEY DID PRECISELY WITH THE INDICTMENT OF THE THREE AIPAC SPIES; referred to in an essay here recently.

          In other words business as usual.

        Edgewood Hastings, the Zinsser plant, was prepared for a daily production of 75 tons when the armistice was signed in November 1918. (It is unclear how much was ever actually produced.) Edgewood Maryland had a daily capacity of 100 tons; Edgewood Buffalo, 50 tons. In contrast, German plants were never able to produce more than 6 tons a day. “The German method of production, based on the work of Professor Meyer, was a very complicated and difficult one to put into practice on a large scale,” said Zinsser.

          Although I tend to regard everything from HistoryNet as (((fake))) news, at least anent this article I share your disposition to suspend skepticism, lest I fall into the trap of vaulting from fact-lite or -void assumptions to a blasé pose of worldly expertise (cf. Rerevisionist). Only this opinion of Zinsser,

          There is reason to believe that the willingness of the German high command to sue for peace was in a large measure due to their knowledge of what was in store for them.

          seems too rich in supposition for uncritical acceptance.

          Furthermore, the onus, I think, is on those who, wittingly or otherwise, assert that the only ordnance or commodities or processes in which the United States has always been better endowed than the rest of the world are benevolence and valor.

          I don’t think quantity was an issue at all. I have never heard Germany had a shortage. You have to make something effective and you have to be able to release the gas without having the wind blow the gas back onto your own troops and kill them.

          In 1933 Germany had more Nobel Prizes than Great Britain and the USA combined. In 1945 Germany had more Nobel Prizes than any other country in the world. I think there is more to it than just producing mass quantities of something. Only Germany had nerve agents like Sarin and Tabun and I would imagine they would have been quite effective as payloads on V2 Rockets. I don’t think the British would have known what happened

          02 At the time Germany sued for peace, there was not a single Allied soldier on German territory, nor on much of its area of occupation.
          03 The peace was initially referred to as the Armistice [ Day; Nov. 11 ]. Only after too many people subsequently agreed with Hitler’s correct terminology of DIKTAT, pursuant to disclosed evidence, were they obliged to alter the appellation to Remembrance Day.
          04 I never buy poppies or attend the crap at the Cenotaphs on ” Remembrance Day “, which in NO WAY diminishes my eternal sorrow for the duped fallen of all sides, as well as their mutilated families and farmsteads.

          Dear Charles,

          This item of yours,

          02 At the time Germany sued for peace, there was not a single Allied soldier on German territory, nor on much of its area of occupation.

          has for as long as I can remember been the pons asinorum for two groups of people: (1) those who rejoice in the fact that war is the health of the state; and (2) those who are reluctant to admit, let alone discuss, that in 1918 Germany was under internal attack by Jewish communists who wanted to do to Germany what (((Lenin and his comrades))), thanks to the sealed train and related German assistance, were doing to Russia.

          Of course, the internal revolutions involving Luxembourg et alii that took tens of thousands of Christian German lives were no more than the standard Jewish way of saying thank you for a favor—in this instance the favor of enabling international Jewry to exterminate millions upon millions of its hated Christian enemy farther east. See also Marx’s famous quip about hanging the last capitalist from a rope bought from him—if, that is, the quipper was indeed Marx.

      Assad looks pretty white to me and so does his attractive wife. Even if he isn’t, he hasn’t done anything to the west. I believe Assad is a decent man and Netanyahu and other Jews are the war criminals, not to mention people like George Bush and the neo-cons.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdN_NpIcSQw

      You might have been affected by the 80+ years of Jewish hate for Germans and Hitler. While the allied countries were almost all white, Germany’s most important ally was Japan, which of course is not white.

      Here is Hitler meeting with the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem in Berlin:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q067g6SIXHg

      I suspect the Grand Mufti might feel ashamed of the way the Arabs are behaving in Europe. Personally, I believe the reason is Europe receives the poorest, least educated and often the garbage from the Middle East and even terrorists sent to create mayhem.

      I don’t believe Islam is the problem. Also, if the west (most importantly the USA) had not supported Israel in its three wars with Israel (1948, 1967 and 1973) and at all other times, including when Israel goes in to Gaza to murder a couple thousand Palestinians every few years, not to mention the US completely destroying Iraq (twice), Libya and other countries with the only beneficiaries being the Jews, the west would have little or no problem with Muslims. With all their oil and the USA being their major customer for decades, it made no sense for the US to go against these countries. There would have been no oil embargo directed at the west after the US intervened in the 1973 war on Israel’s behalf (I still remember the long lines at the gas stations) and Europe and the US probably would have received a much better deal from them over the last 50 or 60 years. Who bombs your major supplier of oil, especially when they’ve done nothing to you? It’s all for the Jews and Israel. It hasn’t benefited us in any way and it has created enemies, including Osama Bin Laden who cited the USA’s support of Israel as a reason for his attack on the US.

      David Yandell:

      Much obliged for your hasbara tripe and the lack of logic of the remainder of your misdirecting comment.

      01 You visually, and not inadvertently conflate the
      ” Bohemian Corporal ” with a ” lacquered ape “. By whatever measure this ‘corporal’ is gaining agreement and credibility world-wide, on a daily basis; even among those not yet immediately affected by our current ideological, historiographical and de facto war. Including JFK’s 1945 assessment and prognosis.

      02 “… a bunch of white men who speak so well of an untermensch [Assad] who floods sacred Germany with hordes of Levantines “. It is ‘ common knowledge ‘, [ to use your term in your next sentence ] that the refugee problem in Europe and elsewhere, was not caused by Assad, but was a calculated result of organized rebellion against him; and we all know the names of the machers and NGOs. Wherein the N in NGO is a misnomer, since we all know of their tight interconnectedness. [ Need a list ? ]

      03 Your “: BUNCH of white men ” are those, and us, altogether too few yet, but increasing in bunchiness, who severed their umbilical chords from the Jewish narrative espoused, among innumerable others, by Zionist [ Finkelstein debate ] Blitzer, while interviewing two or three other Zionists simultaneously, with ” leading ” questions, in the absence of even a single ” ‘company’ goy “.

      04 Your polemic against Assad sounds hollow and in support of Israel’s absolute necessity to have a complete non-entity appointed by the neo-cons to head Damascus; if for nothing more than its retention of the illegally annexed Golan Heights [ 1982 ]. These Heights contain an exceptionally concentrated, tested and verified voluminous supply of oil.

      05 King Netanyahu personally granted its exploration and exploitation to Genie Oil of New Jersey, represented by subsidiary Israeli purposefully created ” local ” companies.
      Lord Rothschild [ unlimited money ], Cheney [ still a Washington power-broker ] and Murdoch [ to tell the world that all is well with the best of all possible worlds ] are on its board; with lion-share shares.

      06 If the non-application of gas during WW II is indeed
      ” common knowledge “, as you correctly state, why in hell would you fault TOO for not writing a specific feature on it.
      Not a few of us here would be confused, if Dr. MacDonald would now publish local weather forecasts, similarly
      “commonly known “.

        My hat’s off to you, Charles, for the splendid, detailed rebuke above.

        What follows is misfiled, strictly speaking, but the subentry density where it properly goes is approaching Amazonian proportions.

        The Anne Frank Foundation also chimed in against Spicer, rather than come to grips with its very own discovery, that some malign neighbor did not report the Franks to the Dutch German-run Police, searching for Jews, but that the Police was investigating the forging of life-sustaining food-allocation stamps, as well as black-marketeering in genuine ones and those allotted to dead people or altogether invented people; traced to Otto Frank’s sales personnel.

        This is news to me—very welcome news, of course. Can you (or someone else) point me to a site or a link wherein a fuller presentation of the revelations may be found? Few things would give me more pleasure than seeing yet another nail hammered into the coffin of this repellent fable.

        The Rosenbergs, though deserving of their executions, were merely the fall guys to obfuscate the almost exclusively Jew-run, extensive nuclear espionage ring in the US.

        Thank you for writing the highlighted phrase. I have grown immensely weary of the cottage industry, an industry to which a large number of our thoroughly brainwashed and obsequiously complaisant Gentile brethren have contributed, devoted to whitewashing first one, then the other, of the Rosenbergs. They may now be seen to be anything but the prime movers in the treason of which they were convicted, but they were certainly complicit enough to merit the punishment they received.

      At the Second Zionist Congress in Basel Max Nordau proposes creating a ‘muscle Jew’ (Muskeljude) – physically strong, sexually potent and morally fit. Modeled after images of Hellenic athletes. the new ideal is intended to overcome frequent images, internalized even by many Jews, of the Jew as scrawny, weak, and inferior.

    It appears that Trump is on board with the “clean break and new strategy for securing the realm.” The world trade centre false flag set the stage for the invasion of Iraq, but politically stable and relatively secular Syria and Iran pose the main threats to Israel. The bear had their backs and this intimidated Obama so direct confrontation was placed on hold. Carpet bombings, major destabilization, support for jihadists and the creation of Isis would suffice until the lame Gas Baby (does anyone really buy into this?) meme hit the ‘news.’ We’ll have to wait and see if Trumps touching love for babies leads to the armageddon they want.
    The destruction of Libya and vicious, disgraceful murder of Gaddafi in 2011 though, appeased Obama’s kosher masters. The destabilization of the West had begun. While bombs rained down on the most civilized nation in Africa, the Russian paper Tomorrow printed a piece by Gaddafi. This is an excerpt: “You bomb the wall, do not miss the flow of African migration into Europe. This wall was Libya. You are destroying it. You idiots. Thousands of migrants from Africa with the support of Al Qaeda will burn you in hell.”

      Moderator, your ‘ lack of French education ‘ would have been a plus during the “Liberty Fries ” era. Everyone here, with the exception of Karen T., has made errors when spelling German words; possibly myself. This in no way detracts from the little typos we are all guilty of; both commenters and authors alike. Every reader here knows, that an accidental ‘then’, rather than a ‘than’ should be overlooked and is in no way indicative of the value or credibility of the contribution of the writer.

      Parking-meter maids and unfed meters may have a symbiotic relationship, but also provide my life with more distraction than it requires.’s

      I’ve never had a keyboard with any accents or the German Umlaut; two dots over a-o-u, which never prevented me from spreading a measured nastiness.

      (Mod Note: My keyboard doesn’t have those either. Hence, Trenchant’s request is still not dealt with. Personally, it doesn’t matter to me if a diacritical mark is “out of order”; most people still understand. It’s a balancing act between “Making TOO look good” and perhaps more nit-picking than necessary. I do, however, understand that some people prefer to keep it all as “correct” as possible, and appreciate their effort in sending such corrections to TOO.)

          There is an easier way to type any letter with any additional symbol. I have Linux and I choose : menu – preferences – onboard. The symbol of “onboard” can be fixed on the lower banner. If you click on it, you get an on-screen keyboard. Click on a letter and keep it pressed for a while : a row of the same letter with additional symbols appear. For example if you choose “a”, you get : á à â ä ǎ ă ā ã å ą æ . Then choose one of them. The same can be done in Windows.

      For Macs, press “Option” together with the grave (`) symbol (just above Tab, I believe). Release both keys and press “a”. Done!

      (Mod. Note: Thanks Trenchant. Now I can “fix” some of the typos you spot!)

    I am not making this up: If you go to the Petition Site (compliments of Care2.com), you will find a petition to have Spicer fired for his offence.

    Historian David Irving commented on Sean Spicer’s comment and the Jewish petition to have him fired – “What Spicer probably meant was that since Germany had signed the Geneva convention on poison gases, Hitler never used Sarin or Tabun, although he had thirty thousand tons stockpiled of both secret nerve gases. While of course the USA has never used “chemical weapons” on the people of Vietnam or Hiroshima”

    Dear Pierre. This site is regulated by a high speed-limit. Readers return only to subsequent, dated replies on threads of particular interest to them. Understandable. Having written my comments from memory I wanted to re-check and came up with even more forgotten gruesome information, which I deem to be of vital [ i.e. cultural life or death ] interest to our readership. Therefore I opted to reply to your reply and questions of April 15 with a new comment; enumerated for “brevity “; respecting my two below comments.

    01 Forgive my tardiness and even more so my directing you to CNN, of all things. For the Frank Museum’s own ” re-evaluation ” go to ” Anne Frank’s arrest might not have stemmed from Betrayal. CNN.com.” Many related links.

    A Summary of a Report by the Museum deals with what I stated below: that the arrest followed a routine criminal two-men Dutch investigation, accompanied by a German SD non-com, into lucrative forging and black-marketeering in ration cards, traced to two of Otto’s employees; one with a pre-war record. Anne herself wrote of these arrests and the resulting loss of their ration cards: only allocated to those who were registered with the Dutch authorities. Far from doing without, she [ ? ] wrote of ravenous and stilled appetites of some men in hiding with them.

    Like the buttresses of a cathedral’s vaulted ceiling preventing the collapse of the roof, the Diary, with its enormous, tens of millions distribution in uncountable languages, buttresses the Holocaust. What ” teachable ” child anywhere would not identify with Anne, who, quite apart, did not ‘deserve’ to have her innocent life destroyed: any more than the 400,000 Iraqi sanctions-murdered children approved of by that Humanitarian Jewess Sec. of State Albright.

    The Dutch are meticulous record keepers; they have a center for war-time documentation. They also have influential revisionist groups. I think the latter mined the former and came up with embarrassing FACTS. Since both the Museum and the Anne Frank Foundation in Basel are VITALLY INTERESTED in maintaining their credibility and cash-flow, they have now, many decades later, been forced into a position to have to undertake, what they euphemistically call a ” re-evaluation “; to retain their ‘integrity’. Excepting their real motivation, the gist of their announcement.

    Though propagandistically one, the Museum and the Foundation in Switzerland, under Otto, have fought tooth and nail over the various lucrative copyrights. The ‘lawfare’ among and between them, even her co-authorship-claiming teacher is too much to relate here. Simply envision the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in Chicago, or that on the same Day during the French Revolution or even the one merely beginning in Dresden on that Day. Identical ” ethics “.

    02 Robert Faurisson, with his PhD in literature, professionally critiqued her Diary. He interviewed Otto, his not always agreeing wife, the Austrian then cop who originally arrested those people, and most others directly involved: even Wiesenthal, who called Otto ” crazy and obsessed with maintaining that myth “! At minimum incongruous.

    Faurisson physically examined the premises with respect to the Diary and found dozens of reasons for finally calling the Diary a complete fabrication.

    You can read his complete, exceedingly perspicacious, forensic, and stylistic analysis by entering ” Is the diary of Anne Frank genuine ? “, published by the IHR.

    [ Correction: It was not the Anne Frank Foundation, itself in Basel, but the NYC Anne Frank Center which “chimed in on criticizing Spicer” ].

    03 If you were not to have yet read ” How wars are made: from Major Jordan’s Diary “, you must do so at the first possibility. It’s on the net and at Amazon. You will recall that I referred to him in my below comment, along with the Rosenbergs.

    He was an Air Force Major engaged in transferring war-planes from Montana to the USSR via Anchorage. I stated from memory that one of the cargo planes stopped over in Alberta to take uranium aboard for Soviet nuclear research.

    Let me add to that: a] also heavy water, aluminum pipes for fabricating centrifuges as well as all lab and fabrication equipment for same; b] plans developed through war games, of US defenses against potential attacks on the US mainland; c] Treasury-ordered currency printing-plates for the combined Allied use in Germany of a special post-war currency. The Bolshevik-Jews in Moscow were dissatisfied with merely receiving the US-printed money and demanded the plates themselves. After a theatrical wrangle the Bolshevik-Jews Sec. of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau Jr,, ably assisted by Soviet spy and Assistant Sec. of the Treasury and subsequently President of his own creation, the IMF, super Jew Henry Dexter White {{{Weiss]]] ” reluctantly ” relented. Aided by Harry Hopkins. They got their plates and the US taxpayer lost an estimated $ 250,000,000 after this occupation currency was redeemed at par with the subsequent Deutschmark. Imagine the buying power of the dollar at that time. And this as well is incomplete and a mere addition to what I described below.

    Dare I ask Dr. MacDonald to mandate one of the capable authors here to review this sad, corroborative and fascinating Diary/Book of a patriot ?

    Imagine the grimace on the ADL’s Greenblatt while receiving a copy of TOO’s Review: rudely interrupting him while he’s adding to his long list of apologies this and all other host-nations owe to his tribe: warranting never-ending tributes under whichever euphemistic term.

      Another addendum and correction. I wrote of ” several hundred ” planes having been transferred to the USSR. Jordan relying on his meticulous diary, stated that the number was just short of 8,000. There were seven Air Force companies engaged in ferrying the planes to Montana, thence to Fairbanks, where, at certain times almost 600 Soviet and Polish pilots congregated flying the rest of the route into Russia. Big business.

      One of the several C-47s, of three groups transporting said printing plates “””crashed””” in Siberia, never to be found. Though Siberia is vast, their vectored routes were concentrated for mutual protection. Pure bullshit. The next day {{{Morgenthau Jr.}}} replaced the plates, paper and ink with another shipment directly from Washington.

      Jordan complained to his superiors, finally to Congress. Everything was swept under the table. His included transcripts from Congressional Inquiries, proving his allegations’ veracity, were as nothing to the superior power of the Jews and their plans, even at that earlier time.

    As an elderly, retired history professor told me “no serious, genuine historian believes the Holocaust as the tale is disseminated to the masses but if they want to keep their positions, they will be indistinguishable from the most rabid Yad Vashem operatives.”
