A Nazi Invasion of the Great Lakes.

Today, I almost fell out of my chair when a friend sent me an e-mail telling a story about a Nazi Submarine found in the Great Lakes. I had never heard this before even though I have kept up on WWII history. A story such as this one which strikes so close to home would have certainly made headlines in the locals. Evidently, the story was kept secret to prevent us from panicking.

I am particularly interested because submarines are still in existence, and they are more numerous today than they were in 1943. They are also stealthy and have many more weapons on them. When ever I hear a rumor that China, Iran  or any of the Mid-Eastern countries are seeking to own a submarine I get nervous.

In 1943, the Nazis were limited to where they could go in the Great Lakes. Today, with the Saint Lawrence Seaway open it is theoretically possible for a sub to make it into Lake Michigan. What a field day they could have by destroying the Mackinac Bridge or by launching some missiles into the Chicago Loop. Even if a missile did not make it into the city, if one blows up above, or near, the magnetic pulse created would take down the power grids, and communications of the entire Mid West.

USA: Mysterious Nazi submarine from WWII discovered in Great Lakes
Niagara Falls: Divers from the U.S coast guard took part this morning, in a delicate wreck recovery operation to bring to the surface a Nazi submarine discovered two weeks ago at the bottom of Lake Ontario.

The U-boat was spotted for the first time by amateur scuba divers in late January and they had contacted the authorities. Archaeologists associated with the University of Niagara , and master divers from the U.S Coast Guard were mobilized on site to determine what it was, and they soon realized that they were dealing with a German submarine that sank during World War II.

A wreck recovery vessel of the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society was mandated to refloat the ship and bring it back to Niagara Falls, where it must be restored before becoming a museum ship. The delicate recovery operation took nearly 30 hours to complete, but the submarine was finally brought down on the bank with relative ease.

The divers of the U.S. Coast guard braved the frigid water temperature to go attach cables to the wreck for the recovery operation.
The submarine was identified as the UX-791, a unique experimental German submarine, based on the U-1200 model, and known to have participated in the “Battle of the St. Lawrence”. It was reported missing in 1943 and was believed to have been sunk near the Canadian coast.
Professor Mark Carpenter, who leads the team of archaeologists, believes that the U-boat could have traveled up the St-Lawrence River, all the way to the Great Lakes, where it intended to disturb the American economy.
A report dated from February 1943 suggests, that the ship could have attacked and destroyed three cargo ships and two fishing vessels, even damaging the USS Sable (IX-81), an aircraft carrier of the U.S. navy that was used for training in the Great Lakes, before finally being sunk by anti-sub grenades launched by a Canadian frigate.
“We have known for a long time that the Nazis had sent some of their U-boats in the St-Lawrence River, but this is the first proof that they actually reached the Great Lakes,” Professor Carpenter told reporters. “This could explain the mysterious ship disappearances that took place in the region in 1943, and the reported “Battle of Niagara Falls” which had always been dismissed as a collective hallucination caused by fear.”
The restoration of the submarine could take more than two years, but once completed, the museum ship is expected to become one of the major tourist attractions of the region.

 

Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant

The distribution of the predominant Islamic madhhab (school of law) followed in majority-Muslim countries and regions (English) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I have been an advocate of banning Muslims from America for some time. Their ideology is in direct contradiction to the principles of the United States. Islam and America cannot coexist within the same borders. It is that simple. Perhaps if the Islamists were to separate their religious beliefs from their political beliefs it could be possible for America to embrace them under our First Amendment right to Freedom of Religion. When the first muslims arrive here they do assemble peacefully and we embrace them. Things change as their numbers increase. A once peaceful religion begins spewing hate and vile messages about the infidel (all of us).

Muslims firmly believe that the Koran is the Law from God and as such it is the only law they must obey. The Koran and American laws are at odds with each other. We separate our churches from our state. In Islam they are the same. That is why I believe we must close the doors on people who profess the Islāmic faith. Their faith commits them to overtaking our country and converting us to their religious beliefs.

The article below is an articulate essay that supports my belief.

Paul E. Marek is a second-generation Canadian, whose grandparents fled Czechoslovakia just prior to the Nazi takeover. He is an educational consultant specializing in programs that protect children from predatory adults.

I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War II. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.

“Very few people were true Nazis,” he said, “but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.”

We are told again and again by experts and talking heads that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unquantified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.

The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars world wide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behea

The fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.

d, murder, or execute honor killings. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard, quantifiable fact is that the “peaceful majority” is the “silent majority,” and it is cowed and extraneous.

Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China’s huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people. The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a war-mongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across Southeast Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians – most killed by sword, shovel and bayonet. And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery? Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were “peace loving”?

History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt; yet, for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by the fanatics. Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don’t speak up, because, like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Bosnians, Afghanis, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians and many others, have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us, watching it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts: the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Nowhere Else to Go

 

    My Lion-Friend Mike sent me one of those-mails that we pass around from person to person.  The Subject of this one is 1938 Austria. Since that is the year I was born, the article got my curiosity. I decided the story is worth spreading around the entire country. Every school from coast to coast must tell the story to our kids over and over until they understand what it is about.  Many times, I spread stuff because I want to believe it is true, and it is not.  Each time someone dupes me, I resolve not to let it happen again.  This is so important that I searched the net and found the author, one Kitty Werthmann. She is an activist living in South Dakota. What is her passion? It is simple. Don’t let our freedoms slip away. Read the account below and let me know what you think. Is it possible that a story such as this one is the reason that educators are eliminating history from school curriculums?

America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away

By: Kitty Werthmann  

     What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or will
ever read in history books.
     I believe that I am an eyewitness to history.  I cannot tell you that Hitler
took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.  We elected him by
a landslide – 98% of the vote..  I’ve never read that in any American
publications.  Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and
took Austria by force.
     In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression.  Nearly one-third of our workforce
was unemployed.  We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates.
     Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily.  Young people
were going from house to house begging for food.  Not that they didn’t want
to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.  My mother was a Christian woman and
believed in helping people in need.  Every day we cooked a big kettle of
soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.
     The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each
other.  Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna , Linz , and Graz were
destroyed.  The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let
them decide what kind of government they wanted.
     We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany , where Hitler had been in
power since 1933.  We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or
crime, and they had a high standard of living.  Nothing was ever said about
persecution of any group — Jewish or otherwise.  We were led to believe
that everyone was happy.  We wanted the same way of life in Austria . We
were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and
help for the family.  Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted,
and farmers would get their farms back.  Ninety-eight percent of the
population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.
     We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had
candlelight parades.  The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.
     After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we
suddenly had law and order.  Three or four weeks later, everyone was
employed.  The government made sure that a lot of work was created through
the Public Work Service.
     Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women.  Before this, it was a
custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home.  An
able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his
family.  Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could
retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.

Hitler Targets Education – Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:

     Our education was nationalized.  I attended a very good public school.  The
population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools.
The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to
find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag.
Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t
pray or have religion anymore.  Instead, we sang “Deutschland, Deutschland,
Uber Alles,” and had physical education.
     Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance.  Parents were
not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum.  They were told that if
they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first
time.  The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the
third time they would be subject to jail.  The first two hours consisted of
political indoctrination.  The rest of the day we had sports.  As time went
along, we loved it.  Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment
free.  We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful
time we had.  
     My mother was very unhappy.  When the next term started, she took me out of
public school and put me in a convent.  I told her she couldn’t do that and
she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful.  There was a
very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political
indoctrination.  I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it.  Every
once in a while, on holidays, I went home.  I would go back to my old
friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.  Their loose
lifestyle was very alarming to me.  They lived without religion.  By that
time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.  It seemed
strange to me that our society changed so suddenly.  As time went along, I
realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that
kind of humanistic philosophy.

Equal Rights Hits Home:

     In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established.  All food was
rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps.  At the same time, a
full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t
get a ration card, and if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.
Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable
skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.
     Soon after this, the draft was implemented.  It was compulsory for young
people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps.  During the
day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their
barracks for military training just like the boys.  They were trained to be
anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps.  After the labor
corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.  When I go
back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are
emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors
of combat.  Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an
air raid attack.  I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go
into the labor corps and into military service.   

Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:  

     When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government
immediately established child care centers.  You could take your children
ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a
week, under the total care of the government.  The state raised a whole
generation of children..  There were no motherly women to take care of the
children, just people highly trained in child psychology.  By this time, no
one talked about equal rights.  We knew we had been had.   

Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:

     Before Hitler, we had very good medical care.  Many American doctors trained
at the University of Vienna .  After Hitler, health care was socialized,
free for everyone.  Doctors were salaried by the government.  The problem
was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.
When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already
waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.  If you needed
elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn.  There was no
money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine.  Research at
the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and
emigrated to other countries.
     As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income.  Newlyweds
immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a
household.  We had big programs for families.  All day care and education
were free.  High schools were taken over by the government and college
tuition was subsidized.  Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as
food stamps, clothing, and housing.  
     We had another agency designed to monitor business.  My brother-in-law owned
a restaurant that had square tables.  Government officials told him he had
to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on
the corners.  Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities.
It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar.  He couldn’t meet all
the demands.  Soon, he went out of business.  If the government owned the
large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.
     We had consumer protection.  We were told how to shop and what to buy.  Free
enterprise was essentially abolished.  We had a planning agency specially
designed for farmers.  The agents would go to the farms, count the
live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.   

“Mercy Killing” Redefined:

     In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps .  The
villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were
closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.  So people intermarried
and offspring were sometimes retarded.  When I arrived, I was told there
were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good
manual work.  I knew one, named Vincent, very well.  He was a janitor of the
school.  One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting
into a van.  I asked my superior where they were going.  She said to an
institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and
to read and write.  The families were required to sign papers with a little
clause that they could not visit for 6 months.  They were told visits would
interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.   
     As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a
natural, merciful death.  The villagers were not fooled.  We suspected what

was happening.  Those people left in excellent physical health and all died
within 6 months.  We called this euthanasia.   

The Final Steps – Gun Laws:  

     Next came gun registration..  People were getting injured by guns.  Hitler
said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by
matching serial numbers on guns.  Most citizens were law abiding and
dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms.  Not
long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in
their guns.  The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not
to comply voluntarily.   
     No more freedom of speech.  Anyone who said something against the government
was taken away.  We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but
also priests and ministers who spoke up.
     Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943,
to realize full dictatorship in Austria .  Had it happened overnight, my
countrymen would have fought to the last breath.  Instead, we had creeping
gradualism.  Now, our only weapons were broom handles.  The whole idea
sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our
freedom.
     After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria .  Women were raped,
preteen to elderly.  The press never wrote about this either.  When the
Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling
whole factories in the process.  They sawed down whole orchards of fruit,
and what they couldn’t destroy, they burned.  We called it The Burned Earth.
Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses.  Women hid in
their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized.  Those who couldn’t, paid
the price.  There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women
who were massacred by the Russians.  This is an eye witness account.
     “It’s true..those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.  America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away”

“After America , There is No Place to Go”

A Hypocrisy I Don’t Understand

I don’t feel like writing today, so I’ll keep this short. I couldn’t stand being screwed into the couch any longer. I had to become an activist. Why? I see my country being decimated by a bunch of people who want to make the world a better place. How can anyone make the world a better place by destroying the greatest country in the history of the universe? It is a hypocrisy I don’t understand.
