The following quote is from a news article written on July 12th, 2017, which you can read in full by following the link above.

Begin quote from news article

The negotiators agreed to reduce the amount of time a person has to have lived “in hiding or under false identity” in order to be eligible for a pension, from six month to four months, which will affect an estimated 1,000 people who were not previously eligible. The budget for 2018 funding for partner agencies that provide in-home services for survivors was also increased by more than $60 million, and an agreement was reached to allow an estimated 5,000 people who in the past received smaller one-time payments for hardship to receive new payments that would make their compensation more commensurate with the amount provided nowadays.

End quote from news article.

It seems like I blog about this almost every day, but then more money is awarded to the Jews.

I just wrote about this subject a few days ago.  It is hard for me to keep up with all this news about holocaust victims constantly being awarded more money. You can review my last article about the Germans paying more money, that I wrote on July 13th by clicking on the link below.

The news article concludes with the following quote:

“When you’re talking about compensation for the Holocaust, there is no justice. Nothing is perfect,” Schneider says. “But it was a good piece of work.”

The Diet of Worms

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — furtherglory @ 12:15 pm

The video above is a short version and the video below is a longer version of the same scene.  Both show living off a “diet of worms”.

I am writing today about a Klingon food called gagh.  This food is basically live raw serpent worms.  Gagh is always best served live.  Klingons basically live on a “diet of worms”.

I have been getting a lot of good, but off topic comments, this month. Here are  a few examples.

The link above is to a recent outstanding but off topic comment quoted below.

This is off topic (once again), but how come no one ever drags Martin Luther into this?

Luther wrote: “On the Jews and Their Lies”.

He hammered down on them. He said they were full of “Devils feces”. He said that ”they wallow in it like swine”. The synagogue was a “defiled bride, incorrigible whore and evil slut”. Can’t people see why Jews have been hated since the dawn of time.

The link below was to another off top comment which is also quoted.

Begin Quote

Martin Luther was a defender of the Jews when he was young. He condemned the Catholic Church for it’s treatment of the Jews. He even wrote an article entitled “Jesus Christ was born a Jew” in 1523.

Then he learned Hebrew (in order to verify the conformity of the translated Scriptures with the original texts) and so became able to read what the Talmud and rabbinical teachings stated about Christianity.

From that time, his tone changed. He advised that: “Their private houses must be destroyed and devastated, they could be lodged in stables. Let the magistrates burn their synagogues and let whatever escapes be covered with sand and mud.

Let them be forced to work, and if this avails nothing, we will be compelled to expel them like dogs in order not to expose ourselves to incurring divine wrath and eternal damnation from the Jews and their lies.”

What did Martin Luther have to do with the “diet of worms”

A long time ago, I blogged about the “diet of worms”.

17 year old Jewish girl is teaching a class on the Holocaust

Prisoners in Sachsenhausen camp

The following quote is from a news article which you can read in full at http://www.sun-sentinel.com/florida-jewish-journal/news/palm/fl-jjps-weinstein-0719-20170713-story.html

Begin quote

….when [Dara] Weinstein started public high school at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton [Florida] three years ago, she soon learned that the average student in South Palm Beach knew and cared little about the Holocaust and Holocaust survivors.

Weinstein, now 17 herself, shares information about the Holocaust — and what led up to it — she has gleaned from her own studies and research with the students from diverse backgrounds at these centers.

Weinstein said she tries to focus on the Holocaust’s relevance to what is going on in today’s times.

“You have to talk about what was going on in Germany before Hitler came to power and when he first came to power,” Weinstein said. “People don’t just wake up and start murdering millions of other people. There was a trend of deprivation of basic human rights going on that led up to the Holocaust.”

“Kids need to know that this could happen again today if we are not careful and allow the hatred and mistrust of other people to spiral out of control.”

Weinstein’s curriculum includes interactive learning about the Pyramid of Hate; discussions about how discrimination and stereotyping can lead to genocide; and The Butterfly Project — whereby participants construct paper butterflies as a memorial for each of the 1.5 million children who died in the Holocaust.

So far, the curriculum has been very well received.

Hey, maybe I should start a class on the Holocaust for old people. I could conduct classes in an old folks home, for people who are 71 [not 17].

Here is what I would teach:

The three major camps in the Nazi concentration camp system in Germany were Dachau, Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald. Dachau was the first Nazi concentration camp in the state of Bavaria. Located just outside Munich, it was opened on March 22, 1933, less than two months after Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany.

Also in 1933, another camp was opened in an old brewery at Oranienburg, 35 kilometers north of Berlin. The Oranienburg camp was rebuilt in 1936 and named Sachsenhausen. Buchenwald was built just outside the city of Weimar in 1937, and its first prisoners were transferred there from Sachsenhausen.

All three of these camps were built to imprison the opponents of Fascism and all three were located in areas which were hotbeds of Communist and Social Democrat political activity. The German state of Bavaria was taken over by Communist revolutionaries on November 7, 1918, just four days before the Armistice which ended World War I was signed on November 11, 1918.

Berlin was the site of the “November Revolution” in 1918 when the Social Democrats toppled the imperial government of Germany and proclaimed a Republic on November 9, 1918. Weimar is where the Social Democrats wrote the constitution for their newly proclaimed Republic; the city is only 20 miles from Gotha, the birthplace of the Social Democrat political party.

Weimar is also the birthplace of the liberal Bauhaus movement of modern art and architecture, which was the direct opposite of the Nazi ideal of classic art, literature, music and architecture.

In 1936 when the Nazis remodeled the Oranienburg camp, which then became Sachsenhausen, the Jews were being persecuted relentlessly and pressured to leave Germany, but no Jews were being sent to any of the concentration camps unless they were political dissidents, trade union organizers, asocials, vagrants, criminals, or race mixers and homosexuals who had broken the law.

In other words, the Jews were not innocent victims, who were doing nothing to upset the Germans.

When construction started on the new Sachsenhausen concentration camp in the summer of 1936, Nazi Germany was the envy of the Western world. From the depths of the Great Depression in 1932, Hitler had achieved an “economic miracle” in Germany in less than three years. As yet, there was no sign of Nazi aggression, nor any attempt at world domination by Germany.

Gertrude Stein, the famous Jewish writer who was a mentor to Ernest Hemingway, even suggested in 1937 that Hitler should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Because of the Nazi program of nationalism, the German people had regained their self respect after the humiliating Treaty of Versailles, which Germany was forced to sign at the end of World War I. They now had great pride in their ethnicity and their country.

No people in the world were more patriotic than the Germans in 1936 and no other world leader had the total dedication to his country that Adolph Hitler had.

The ordinary Germans were satisfied with their lives and had no reason to fear the concentration camps or the Gestapo. Hitler was a hero to the 127 million ethnic Germans throughout Europe, whom he wanted to unite into the Greater German Empire, a dream that had been discussed in his native Austria for over 50 years. In less than four years, this dream would be accomplished when Austria, parts of Poland that had formerly been German territory, Luxembourg, the French provinces of Alsace and Lorraine, and the Sudetenland were combined with Germany to form the Greater German Reich.

In 1936, Hitler was more loved and admired than all the other world leaders put together. He was also the only world leader who was actively helping the Zionists with their plan to reclaim Palestine as their country.

So, what happened? What changed? You will have to read some Holocaust Denial websites to find out why the Jews were sent to camps.
