That Time Hitler Gave a Speech on Blacks in Germany

On March 5, 1933, just over a month after gaining office as Chancellor of Germany, Adolf Hitler gave a frighteningly dark speech on race relations in Germany. Here's what he had to say:
My fellow Germans, ... I am very grateful for the many wonderful opportunities to honor African-German heroes, faith leaders, entrepreneurs and the many others who changed the course of our nation. We are blessed by the lives and examples of those who have made this nation a beacon of freedom, talent, and unbreakable German spirit.

This week I had the privilege of visiting the national museum of African-German history and culture right here in Berlin. It's a new, beautiful ... museum that serves as a shining example of African-Germans' incredible contributions to our culture, our society, and our history. It also tells of the great struggle for freedom and equality that prevailed against the sins of slavery and the injustice of discrimination.

The work and love of the people who helped create such a masterpiece is a testament to the legacy of so many leaders and honors. I left that museum confident that together Germany can overcome any challenge. ... Today and every day I pledge to continue the march towards justice and freedom for all so that every German no matter his background, no matter her background, has the chance to climb that great ladder of success.
Chilling stuff.

Behind the Headlines: American Coup D'Etat, Anti-Russian Hysteria, Global Chaos, and the Fourth Turning

‌In the midst of the coup atmosphere currently gripping the US, several related stories reflect American-generated chaos throughout the world: an uptick in Kiev's desperate war on Donbass civilians, the untimely death of yet another veteran Russian Ambassador, and the demonetization developments in India. All give a strong suggestion of where the elites would like to take things. How do all these fit together, and what are they a larger symptom of?

Join us this week on Behind the Headlines as we connect the dots that form the bigger, uglier picture. We'll also take look at one of the ideas of Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon - the 'fourth turning' - and what it might mean for America's future, and the world's. As the saying goes, "when the US sneezes the whole world catches a cold." In this light, we will also be asking how the US's growing inner turmoil is affecting other nations, and what a great US crisis may mean in the future for all.

The Fourth Turning and Steve Bannon Pt. 1: Why He's Wrong, Even Though He's Right

If you've been following the lamestream fakenews media, you've probably heard about Steve Bannon's "obsession" with the "dark theory" about an imminent "fourth turning" in America. Bannon is Trump's chief strategist, so the idea is that he's whispering in Trump's ear and making his own agenda reality. If that's the case, it'll help to understand what Bannon may be whispering. See SOTT.net editor Andres Perezalonso's piece, Trump, Bannon and the danger of self-fulfilling prophecies, for some of that. Here I want to dig into this "fourth turning" I've been hearing so much about lately.

The idea comes from a book of the same name by historian/economist/demographer Neil Howe and author William Strauss. Their overall theory is called "generational theory", and Bannon is a proponent of their work. So let's see what they have to say.

Howe did an interview with Erico Matias Tavares of Sinclair & Co. back in July of 2015. In it he explains that a "turning" is a unit of history, roughly that of a social generation, i.e. around 20 years or so. Each generation interacts with the ones before it, and the ones that come after, so the cycle is tied to the biological life cycles of the people living in them - the character of their parents, how they're raised, how they react to the older generation, how they influence the world once they themselves become parents and leaders, rinse and repeat. Each generation is a product of the last, but also reacts against it in significant ways, setting a culture on a slightly new, or radically new, path.

The Health & Wellness Show: Cell phones, vaccines and Fukushima -- Oh, my!

On this episode of The Health and Wellness show we'll discuss new developments in old topics. Many people are well aware that, despite the convenience and seeming necessity, the use of cell phones can be hazardous to your health. Well a new generation of cell phone tech is coming down the pike and promises to blanket the earth with even higher levels of microwave radiation than ever before. Is it too late to turn back the clock or has humanity's love affair with wireless technology doomed it forever?

With a new vaccine commission in the works, RFK Jr. is shaking up the health world with his call for more investigations into vaccine safety. The consensus among the medical community is that the debate is settled: Vaccines are safe and effective. However, with new information on contaminated vaccine batches and research on various neurological disorders linked to vaccines how can this possibly be the case?

Not only is Fukushima wreaking havoc on the health and well-being of humans and animals around the planet it's also killing robots! This ongoing disaster has surpassed Chernobyl in severity and the news (not reported in the mainstream, of course) seemingly gets worse by the day.

Join us for a lively discussion and stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be vaccine titer tests for pets.

Behind the Headlines: Illusion of democracy: Trump powerless against the Deep State?

Trump's presidency and the 'revolution' it promised to be is, according to some, 'dead in the water'. Facing implacable opposition to implementing his policies from within the media, the courts, the bureaucracy, and likely also his own administration, unless something fundamentally changes, Trump is a 'lame-duck president' with a full term still to go.

This week on Behind the Headlines, we're analyzing recent events in Trumpland, including the firing of General Flynn and Trump's ongoing war with the media, with a view to understanding the largely hidden structural forces that make it so hard for American presidents to enact their campaign promises.

Passport

Libya Tribes leader: Trump's travel restrictions justified, terrorists using fake Libyan passports to enter U.S.


Passports of Syrian mercenaries who come to Libya to receive new identities.
In his first week in office, President Trump signed an order temporarily freezing immigration from seven Middle Eastern and North African countries, including Libya. According to Trump, the order's purpose was to "keep America safe" by blocking groups of people who can not yet be properly vetted. Trump's critics labeled the order a 'Muslim ban', deeming it unfair, mean-spirited, and racist. One recent editorial even criticizes Trump for playing up "the imaginary threat of terrorists" from the countries in question.

Now, after the U.S. court of appeals upheld federal judge Robart's restraining order on the executive order, it appears that Trump plans to sign a new executive order before, or perhaps alternatively to, the appeal to the Supreme Court. But the question remains: is the executive order unreasonable? And is the terrorist threat 'imaginary'?

Libyan tribal leader Sheikh Khaled Tantoush doesn't think so. Sheikh Tantoush, a fierce critic of the jihadist movements and one of Libya's most esteemed clerics, was captured by Libyan "rebels" in Sirte in 2011 along with Colonel Gaddafi. He performed the final Islamic rites over Gaddafi's body after he was murdered, and the Sheikh himself was subsequently imprisoned and tortured. In a 2013 show trial he was sentenced to life in prison on trumped-up charges of "glorifying Gaddafi", but was released last month after spending over five years in prison.

The Truth Perspective with the Moriartys: Fake Libyan Passports Issued by Radicals Supported by State Dept to Invade US


A fake Libyan passport provided to al-Qaeda-linked terrorist Abdelhakim Belhadj, created 26 May 2011, 3 months after the start of the war, 2 months after his release from Libyan prison.
In his first week in office, President Trump signed a temporary order banning immigration from seven Middle Eastern and North African countries, including Libya. According to Trump, the order's purpose was to keep America safe by banning groups of people who could not yet be properly vetted. Trump's critics called the ban unfair, mean-spirited, and racist, and one week later, federal judge James Robart ruled against it, putting into effect a restraining order on the ban. This Thursday, the U.S. court of appeals upheld that decision. Now, it appears that Trump will either sign a new executive order before, or perhaps in place of, appealing to the Supreme Court.

The question many are asking is this: Is Trump's executive order necessary, or over-the-top? A look at Libya may help answer that question.

Joining us again this week are James and JoAnne Moriarty. Continuing from our last discussion with the Moriartys and Libyan Sheik Khaled Tantoush, this week we will discuss the situation in Libya today. Specifically, the Moriartys will share what they know about the passports provided to terrorists in Libya from all over the planet. Just like Saudi Arabia in the 80s and 90s, Libya has become the one-stop-shop for jihadis who need new papers. And just as many terrorists have posed as refugees to get into Europe, many use Libyan passports to come to the U.S. Sometimes they're even welcomed with open arms.

Please support the Moriartys by visiting their website, Libyan War the Truth, where you can donate funds and buy their DVD, Escape from Al Qaeda.

Trump, Bannon and the danger of self-fulfilling prophecies

While he was campaigning, it was wise to refrain from coming to any definite conclusions about Trump's character or intentions. Much of what a presidential candidate says before election day is rhetoric, marketing and bluff, designed to attract as many votes as possible.

As a general rule, the words of a politician, particularly one who is facing an election, rarely translate into actual policy. Actions and results are what count, not discourse or style. Not following this rule is what made America's anti-Bush, anti-war 'dissident left' fall for Obama's deception, and conversely, engage in anti-Trump campaigns before he got into office.

The rule still applies now that Trump has become president, although his words carry more weight because they are now a signature away from becoming executive orders. Someone in his position understands that inconsistency in word and deed risks eroding his authority.
