Fox News reports that Germany is celebrating the end of World War I

Fox News is my favorite TV news channel and Megan Kelly is one of my favorite Fox reporters.  Today I was startled to hear Trace Gallagher, another Fox News reporter say, on Megan’s show, that World War I is finally over and this is cause for celebration in Germany.  He went on to say that the Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919, and later he added that it was signed at the 11th hour on the 11th day of November, the 11th month.  NO, NO, NO!  That was the Armistice that was signed on November 11, 1918 to end World War I.

According to Fox News, World War I is now over because the Germans have finally paid off the reparations that they were required to pay, after Germany TOOK THE BLAME for World War I. NO, NO, NO!  Germany did not TAKE the blame.  This clause of the Treaty of Versailles was forced upon the Germans after the British blockaded German ports to starve the Germans into submission.   (more…)

“fabulous policemen” of the German Gestapo

This quote is from a UK2U blog post about David Irving’s tour of Poland:

Revisionist historian David Irving has praised Adolf Hitler and described the Gestapo as “fabulous Policemen” during a controversial tour of Nazi death camps in Poland.

David Irving’s tour of Poland was infiltrated by a spy who reported on the new crimes committed by Irving a couple of days ago, when he had the audacity to praise Hitler and the Gestapo policemen. This could mean more prison time for “Holocaust Denier David Irving,” as he is known in the mainstream media.

The word Gestapo is an abbreviation of the words Geheime Staatspolizei which mean Secret State Police.  The organization was formed by Hermann Goering, but it was put under the administration of Heinrich Himmler who was the Chief of German Police.

How would David Irving know if the German policemen were fabulous or not?  Well for one thing, Irving translated the memoirs of General Reinhard Gehlen into English. When I attended one of Irving’s lectures in 2009, this book was one of the books that he had for sale; the book was at least 4 inches thick.  I wish now that I had purchased the book and had it autographed by Irving.  Since Irving’s latest crime is all over the news, the value of this book has probably increased.

General Reinhard von Gehlen

I assumed that the younger generation has never heard of Reinhard Gehlen, who used to be known as Reinhard von Gehlen.  I asked a young family member if he had ever heard of him.  Of course, he had heard of Reinhard Gehlen, and he proceeded to tell me several anecdotes about him.  One of the stories was that Reinhard Gehlen was dressed up in the uniform of an American General and sneaked into the United States shortly before World War II was over because America was so anxious to use his services in setting up the CIA.

The story above is apparently not true because I found this quote on the Internet:

On September 20, 1945, Gehlen and three close associates were flown to the United States to begin work for them.

Reinhard Gehlen was not the only German who was used as a secret agent by the United States, after the war.  Klaus Barbie was also brought to America.

In 1947, Klaus Barbie, who is shown in the photo below, became an agent for the 66th Detachment of the U.S. Army Counter Intelligence Corps (CIC).

Horst Kopkow whose death was faked by the British

David Irving undoubtedly knows the story of Horst Kopkow who became a British secret agent after the war.  Kopkow was the senior counter intelligence officer with RSHA ( the Reich Security Head Office in Berlin).

In 1946, Kopkow was in British custody;  he was taken to England for interrogation in 1948, but as soon as he arrived, the British claimed that he was running a temperature. Two days later, it was announced that  Kopkow had died from bronchial pneumonia before any information could be obtained from him.  A death certificate was issued for him and information was released that he had been buried in the POW section of a Military Cemetery.

But Kopkow was not dead. He had been recruited by the British to work for them.

By 1948, the Allies had realized that the real enemy was the Communist Soviet Union. Kopkow had been “released from custody to work for British and American intelligence,” according to the book A Life in Secrets, by Sarah Helm. Kopkow’s death had been faked so that he could help the Allies in fighting the Cold War against the Soviets.

These men were recruited by the Allies because they were “fabulous policemen.” They helped America and Great Britain win the Cold War against the Soviet Union.

BTW, look at how skinny all three of the German men look in the photos above. They practically look like concentration camp prisoners.
