Did Hitler die? Or did he escape? British historian, Gerrard Williams, maintains that there’s been a large cover-up and that Hitler actually escaped Germany.

PTI via First Post:

Gerrard Williams claims that official records confirming the deaths of Hitler and his wife Eva Braun are seriously flawed as the Russians’ failed to announce they had found the body of the infamous dictator.

“I believe that in April 1945 the real Hitler along with Eva Braun were spirited out of the bunker where they escaped. They did not die, we were lied to, we’re still being lied to,” said Williams, a journalist, author and historian.

“It is supported by eyewitnesses who actually never saw anybody get shot. They never see the Fuhrer and Eva go into his private quarters in the bunker. They see bodies coming out but nobody ever see Hitler and Eva dead,” Williams said.

NATO Lies and Provocations

Breedlove_2013_HR

Mike Whitney writes at CounterPunch:

“The war has been provoked to destroy the Russian World, to draw Europe into it, and to surround Russia with hostile countries. Unleashing this world war, America is trying to deal with its own internal problems.”

– Sergei Glazyev, Advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin

The fabrications of NATO’s top commander in Europe, General Philip Breedlove, have driven a wedge between Germany and the United States that could lead to a collapse of the Atlantic Alliance. According to the German news magazine, Der Spiegel, Breedlove has repeatedly sabotaged Chancellor Angela Merkel’s attempts to find a diplomatic solution to the war in Ukraine by spreading “dangerous propaganda” that is misleading the public about Russian “troop advances on the border, (and) the amassing of munitions and alleged columns of Russian tanks.” But while the unusually critical article singles out Breedlove for his hyperbolic exaggerations of so-called Russian aggression, the real purpose of the Spiegel piece is to warn Washington that EU leaders will not support a policy of military confrontation with Moscow.

Thor Steinar: Authoritarian Outfitters

Thor Steinar, German neo-Nazis’ favorite clothing brand, is expanding throughout Europe, reports Berlin-based Thomas Rogers for New Republic:

Around 2010, Pavel Klymenko started noticing a curious brand of clothing gaining popularity with Kiev’s upper-middle class. The hoodies and shirts weren’t especially fashionable. They were covered in garish Nordic imagery, like a wolf howling at the moon, and fit into the macho style favored by many Ukrainian men. But Klymenko, an activist who monitors the extreme right in European football, recognized the name often emblazoned on the clothes in Gothic letters: “Thor Steinar,” two words that, for the past decade, have been synonymous with Germany’s fascist fringe. “Previously it had been worn by Ukrainian neo-Nazis who want to show off,” he says. “Now it was becoming popular among wealthy people.”

Klymenko learned that Thor Steinar had just opened a Kiev store in Dream Town, an upscale mall co-owned by a flashy Jewish businessman.

According to PRI.org:

Essentially, Weida wants to push for legal recognition for his own church in order to make a statement about the rights of non-believers. And he is having some success.

The mayor of Templin, Detlaf Tabbert does not go to any church himself. But he decided to give the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster permission to put up official signs in town letting everyone know where and when to attend “Noodle Worship” services.

Krampus: He Sees You When You’re Sleeping, and Gives You Nightmares

Krampus goes mainstream, making onto the front page of the New York Times:

MUNICH — Long before parents relied on the powers of Santa Claus to monitor their children’s behavior, their counterparts in Alpine villages called on a shaggy-furred, horned creature with a fistful of bound twigs to send the message that they had better watch out.

Tom Bierbaumer recalls the trepidation he felt every Dec. 6, when the clanging of oversize cowbells signaled the arrival of the Krampus, a devilish mountain goblin who serves as an evil counterpart to the good St. Nick. He would think back over his misdeeds of past months — the days he had refused to clear the supper table, left his homework unfinished or pulled a girl’s hair.

“When you are a child, you know what you have done wrong the whole year,” said Mr. Bierbaumer, who grew up in the Bavarian Alps and now heads a Munich-based club, the Sparifankerl Pass — Bavarian dialect for “Devil’s Group” — devoted to keeping the Krampus tradition alive.

Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm?

via Mysterious Universe:

They found the woman’s body jammed inside a tree. As Nazi bombs rained down on wartime Britain, her death might have been passed off as just another statistic. Instead, it became one of the most intriguing mysteries of the war. It was murder, but the victim was never identified. There were hints she had been an enemy agent, and that the authorities knew more than they let on. There were ritual aspects to the murder strongly suggestive of witchcraft and the occult. Finally there were the anonymous graffiti messages, popping up everywhere, asking the question that remains unanswered to this day: “Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm?”

It started in April 1943. A decomposed human body – by this time little more than a skeleton – was found inside a hollow tree trunk in Hagley Wood, about ten miles from the industrial city of Birmingham in the English midlands.

‘Gas the Jews!': European Anti-Semitism During the Gaza Crisis

Isn’t this the kind of bullshit that fertilized Israel’s birth in the first place?

Zack Beauchamp writes at Vox:

Since the outbreak of fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, there’s been a wave of street-level demonstrations rallying against the war. These protestors are generally highly critical of Israel and blame it for the current round of violence, but the vast majority want an end to the violence and are demanding it peacefully.

But the peaceful demonstrators are not alone in turning out to the streets over the Israel-Gaza conflict. A small-but-disturbing fraction of the international anger over the war has escalated into outright anti-Semitism: shouting “gas the Jews!” during protests in Germany, attacking synagogues in France, and beating a rabbi in Morocco.

Boy Drains Pond to Retrieve Lost iPhone

You can’t deny that this kid is determined.

via Metro.co.uk:

The 16-year-old took matters into his own hands after the angling club refused to let him use his diving suit to retrieve the device, sneaking back later that night armed with a powerful pump and two hoses.

‘I thought two pumps would drain enough of the water from the pond so I could find my cellphone,’ he told his local paper in Cologne.

‘I knew the phone was probably dead but wanted to get the data card back with the numbers, pictures and videos of my friends.’

The youngster thought that if he directed the water into the angling club toilet he may get away with his plan – but he failed to notice that the toilet wasn’t attached to a sewage system.

When the owner arrived to a flooded car park he quickly found the cause and called police.
