“The most famous of them was Adolf Heusinger, chief of the Operationsabteilung from 1940-1944. He was actually Hitler’s chief of staff and helped plan the Nazi’s invasions of Poland, Norway, Denmark, and France. He was promoted to colonel on August 1, 1940 and became chief of the Operationsabteilung in October 1940, making him number three in the Army planning hierarchy.
After the war, this German war criminal, the man who helped Hitler plan and execute his invasion of neighboring countries which directly led to the deaths of millions of people, was not even put on trial, quite contrary he was allowed to take over the newly established West German army, the “Bundeswehr”.
In 1961, Heusinger was made the Chairman of the NATO Military Committee (essentially he was NATO’s chief of staff). He served in that capacity until 1964.” Continue reading
…during the years 1941-1945, in the satellite state of Croatia under the government of Croatian fascists, known as the Ustashi, supported by the Axis powers, as well as by the Croatian Catholic hierarchy, with the knowledge of the Vatican.
In order to justify his policy of extermination, the Sultan, Abdual Hamid, was known to say: “The way to get rid of the Armenian question is to get rid of the Armenians.”
This same maxim was adopted by the Croatian nationalists and clericals concerning the Serbian question in Croatia. According to the statutes of the Ustashi organization, “the name Ustashi was to be given to those who, in pre-war Yugoslavia, swore that by the destruction of the Yugoslav State he [they] helped in the extermination of Serbianism and the Orthodox Church.” (Nova Hrvatska, May 4, 1941.)
…the Orthodox Serbs in Croatia barely escaped complete extermination.
“The family saw themselves as German. They were very comfortable speaking German at home, and Edward, on several occasions, referred to German as his mother language, as his Muttersprache.” — Professor Jonathan Petropoulos, Author of Royals and the Reich Continue reading

” Hitler is scheming to annihilate all of European Jewry.
Let us not go like sheep to the slaughter!
It is true that we are weak and defenseless, but the only response to the enemy is resistance.”

In 1951 the provisional West German government granted amnesties to German war criminals, and stopped pursuing any German Nazis and ended the de-Nazification program altogether.
This led to the reintegration of all the German Nazis back into the “new” western German society, industry, politics and power structures.
Many former Nazis served in the new German military, media and government, attaining high offices. They also rebuilt western Germany, with the generous help of billions of dollars of US taxpayers money under the “Marshal Plan”, and became an integral and founding part of the “new” German elites which ended up ruling the “new” Germany.

“Some of his major ideas which, at the time, seemed beyond belief include: spreading political antisemitism and anti-Zionism to the Third World and bringing about the Islamization of Europe by encouraging mass migration in order to change its demographics and to undermine its Christian traditions and culture.” Continue reading
“Any attempt to bring the SS scum to trial would risk lifting the lid on the squalid history of Britain’s own post-war “rat line”, revealing how the British intelligence services combed the “displaced persons” refugee camps in Europe, seeking to enlist certified Nazi war criminals as “freedom fighters”…
British have always tried to conceal their role in smuggling literally thousands of war criminals into this country.
It was the Labour government of Attlee/Bevin which provided haven for these mass murderers…” Continue reading
German economist called Ludwig Erhard. Erhard had written a lengthy manuscript on the transition to a post-war economy after Germany’s defeat…
Erhard pondered how German industry could expand its reach across the shattered European continent. The answer was through supranationalism – the voluntary surrender of national sovereignty to an international body…
Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda chief, once said: ‘In 50 years’ time nobody will think of nation states.’ Continue reading
Hodges is currently in the employ of the Center for European Policy Analysis as its Pershing chair in strategic studies and as a partner in Berlin Global Advisors.
In a NPR op-ed Hodges, has been highly critical of President Donald Trump, condemning his “wrecking ball” approach towards America’s European allies in Brussels during a NATO summit in 2018. Hodges complains Trump, “publicly humiliated our most important allies” — mostly notably the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. Given his once high ranking position in the U.S. military, General Hodges is curiously sympathetic to the German position. In that same NPR opinion piece he argues,
“Germany is our essential ally: We need Germany to be a part of everything that is important to us because the German brand is so respected around the world.”
Serbs and Jews are unlikely to share Hodges view of the Germans, given both communities were murdered in enormous numbers in Nazi concentration camps in World War II at the hands of the Germans and their fascist Albanian, Croat and Bosnian- Muslim collaborators. Continue reading
