John Friend of The Realist Report interviews German-Canadian activist Alfred Schaefer on his efforts to expose the activities of organized jewry and its ongoing plan of genocide against non-jews, especially Whites. The psychological warfare that is being waged against us by organized jewry is of particular interest to him and how they have programmed us to passively accept our own destruction through the constant use of poisonous ideas and words — KATANA.]




The Realist Report

by John Friend

On this edition of The Realist Report, we’re joined once again by Alfred Schaefer, a courageous activist, thinker, and revisionist who has been persecuted in Germany as a result of his intellectual and political pursuits. In this podcast, we discuss some of Alfred’s recent activities and speaking engagements. We move on to address the persecution of political dissidents and “Holocaust” revisionists throughout Europe, including Horst Mahler, a German revisionist who has fled the country rather than accept yet another prison term, and Ursula Haverbeck, a righteous German woman whose case I detailed in an article published by American Free Press. Alfred gives us his take on fake history, the “Holocaust” industry and the anti-White agenda it advances, and President Donald Trump, who is increasingly disappointing and outright betraying his supporters. This is one podcast you do not want to miss!

All right with that said, let me introduce my special guest this evening. Alfred Schaefer is joining us once again. Alfred is quite a courageous activist thinker and revisionist who has been persecuted in Germany as a result of his political and intellectual pursuits. Topics that we will be discussing during this podcast.

Alfred, welcome back to the program, sir! How are you this evening?



Alfred:
 Well, fine John. Thank you very much for having me back online. We’re going into a very critical time now and thanks for having me on.



John:
 Yes, of course. It has been a while and I’m glad to have you back. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a while and we’re finally able to make it happen. And I should say it’s actually morning if I’m not mistaken where you’re at. It’s evening for me, so I guess I probably should have said, “Good morning Alfred”.



Alfred:
 Yeah, it’s five o’clock in the morning for me right now.



John:
 Yeah and thanks for getting up and being a champ and doing this. It probably wouldn’t work out any other way, so I do appreciate that. So anyways, we’ve got a lot to talk about and as I mentioned it has been a while since you’ve been on the program, so what have you been up to? How have you been?

Alfred: Well, we’re working full speed and as you mentioned I’m being persecuted. I had like, … The police had raided our house here back in August and stolen all of my computer equipment and this, … It wasn’t that long ago that I finally, we finally got, you know, through the charge basically. And it really looks like they are looking for a face-saving way to back down from these “thought laws” which are completely unsustainable. Because I am the main accused and alongside myself we Ursula Haverbeck, which is an iconic figure. We have Gerhard Ittner who has served a number of years in prison and was kidnapped from Portugal, brought back to Germany to face charges. And we have Henry Hafenmayer who’s working really hard and doing excellent work, you know, with sending information to all the prosecutors and judges and all the different functions in society. So we’ve got a real “dream team” put together here and it really does look like they’re trying to find, somehow, you know, than A-team to sort of take down these laws. That’s how we’re looking at it. And I’m not in any way fearful, or regret that they came. In fact, this is an opportunity. In fact, we are in times right now where people have to understand that these are fantastic opportunities to take down this construct of lies! And that’s what we’re looking at and that’s how we’re taking it.



[04:58]



John:
 Good! Yeah, that’s a very productive and positive way to look at your situation. Now you had mentioned that, … So your home was raided. This was back in August of 2016.



Alfred:
 Yes, correct.

Friends, ladies and gentlemen!

 

Of course I’m particularly pleased to be close to Mannheim when being among you because this has a certain meaning. A lot has happened, and there is a completely changed situation. Seven or eight years ago, one could not have imagined this. This means, we should assess the current situation within our possibilities to see where we stand; and I think, we still have a lot to learn. There has been a lot of movement causing many in our circles to be enthusiastic and even euphoric, and they now want to be freed by Trump or Putin.

 

Movement is good and important but can also go into the wrong direction. Do we have a direction in this movement? The enemy has long prepared for the situation we are suffering today and plays a significant part in the mix of things we see. Perhaps it has not yet really sunk into our consciousness: The war aim No.1, committed to by Stalin and Roosevelt, was the liquidation of the German people through mixing them with masses of peoples of alien cultures. This program has been played out for over 70 years and has now reached a point where one can speculate: Are they so sure of their success that they drop all their respect and masks? Or are they in a panic because they sense that their calculations are not panning out 100 percent?

 

What’s important for us is that we have our own position in this movement and its development. Much is said about unity, and calls for some kind of actions are plenty, but it’s never clear what is really meant. Are we united, or are there significant differences of opinion in the situation we are in that could lead us into a disaster? I believe we still do not even really comprehend the enemy we are dealing with. This enemy is not only our enemy since 1939 but for hundreds of years. This enemy thinks in view of thousands of years and has a clear vision of his goal. The enemy believes to be striving for this goal by divine order and so is completely free from every scruple and any kind of human stirring. He wants to obey his God. His God says to the Jews:

I am angered by all the heathen and their masses (that’s their warriors). I will give them up to their slaughter so that their corpses stink up to heaven and the mountains flow with blood.

 

It’s not written in a cheap novel; it’s written in the Old Testament. It is an announcement by a major prophet of these people, Isaiah, along the lines of Moses.

 

I am arguing from the assumption that what is written in the Bible is believed. For only this makes the difference: what people believe moves them, and not whether it developed this way. Their belief moves mountains. And there it says that Moses is commanding this small tribe, the Jews, to exterminate, destroy, and murder, in the true sense of the word, many tribes greater than their own. And then he advises moreover:

But do not do this too quickly. For if you work it too swiftly, then wild beasts will move in again to occupy the space freed by murdering. Do it slowly and gently!

 

And then there is one of their fundamental principles:

Let these crimes appear as good deeds, and see to it — with all these nasty works I command you to do to the peoples — that no shadow falls upon Yahweh.

 

This is the order: Through hypocrisy, lies, and deception, commit the worst crimes with the aim to destroy humanity as a whole, with the exception of the chosen people. This has a very concrete reason. We still don‟t comprehend this! This is not some kind of fantasy or mental illness, but as our German philosophers found out, a world historical development for the Jews; and world history is under the influence of reason for the Jews, as it is for us. But it is a development.

YouTube Description

 

Published on Apr 15, 2017

Former lawyer and political activist, Horst Mahler was sentenced to ten years and two months in prison for incitement to racial hatred. He was released after serving seven years because of health problems. A speech given last January in Ludwigshafen caused the authorities to recall Mahler to prison to finish off his sentence. This is possibly the last time he will appear in public. Therefore, his message is both moving and of the utmost importance.

[15:25 mins]

 

 

Perhaps this will be the last chance I have to address my fellow Germans.

 

April 19, 2017, I am scheduled to return to prison to finish my sentence — another three and a half years. I’m 81-years old, awaiting three more charges and it’s always the same inciting racial hatred, this time against Jews. This is therefore an opportunity to remove me definitively from the public sphere and prevent me from coming back into politics once and for all.

 

I’d like to take the opportunity to provide some information on my own particular situation, and on that which awaits us. The reason why they decided to put me back in prison is for a talk I gave on January 9, 2017 in Ludwigshafen, which apparently shocked and angered the enemy. Now, they are playing a game which the public is as yet completely unaware of.

 

Initially, I was sentenced to ten years and two months in prison. Having done two thirds of my time and, in accordance with German law, I should have been released on parole. This decision in my favour had been granted by the district judge in Potsdam. In a written official document, he stated that the continuation of my sentence constituted a violation of my human rights. He also added that, firstly, he was concerned about my prosecution for so-called “Holocaust” denial, and, secondly, that this ten-year two-month-long sentence was highly unusual. He compared my punishment with sentences handed to rapists and murderers who receive much lighter sentences. In other words, he showed himself to be honest and rather daring.

 

However, this decision in my favour has now been overturned by the High Court. As a result, I must now finish the rest of my sentence in detention. In fact, my sentence was interrupted because I was momentarily unfit for prison for health reasons.

 

This began with the amputation of my left leg below my knee, which now severely limits my mobility, but prior to this, I had been diagnosed with a series of health problems which ultimately led to this amputation. In total, I was diagnosed with 21 different illnesses, including heart failure and kidney problems, etc., and all the doctors declared “He’s unfit for prison.” For us, this became a real struggle, especially for my wife who was very good in persuading the Munich State Procurator to accept that my detention must be halted for health reasons.

The Gentilistic Misunderstanding

 

of Jewish Power

 

 

 

 

Jul 12, 2007

 

 

 

 

Jewish power is a subject I often talk about in my writings. In some of my more long-winded pieces I have referred to that power as something almost akin to “omnipotence” or “omnipresence.” One recent poster even says that the fact that Jews are criticized across the internet and that the criticizers are allowed to continue with the criticizing without being purged or molested, proves that Jews are not all-powerful. Point taken, but point irrelevant as well.

 

But neither I nor anyone else have ever claimed that their power is ‘complete’ and ‘total’ in the truest sense of those words, though it is obscenely disproportionate to their tiny numbers. But what I want you to think about is this: There are 18 million Jews upon this planet, yet they control almost all of the world’s media (even reportedly having bought a 50% share of Al Jazeera, oh the irony!), create and manipulate most of the world’s money supply, own every major publishing company in America and most of the publishing houses in Europe, have passed laws in every European country and in Canada outlawing speech that criticizes them and now have the world’s superpower fighting for them in Iraq and poised to kill for them in Iran. Yet some anonymous poster somewhere wants to quibble over the reality that modestly-frequented blogs say derogatory things about Jewish power. So what? Who is listening, for the most part, except the choir in the first place? Yet there is no harm in helping the choir to harmonize better and sing in key, is there?

 

What is also ignored is the fact that in our nation’s controlled socialist schoolhouses and libraries, there are ADL-mandated filters placed on most of the computers, blocking out, not hard-core and child pornography (the ADL and the ACL — Jew both assure us that this type of filtering would be unconstitutional) but any website or forum criticizing Jews, questioning the official “Holocaust story” of six million, bringing up uncomfortable realities about Jewish crime and misbehavior historically, and in general anything that digs into the stark facts of complete Zionist manipulation of our government and its institutions. Young children, even elementary school children should be able to feast their eyes on any type of perversion, no matter how twisted, but God help them if they were to learn the truth about those supremacist Jews who have waged thousands of years of war against every civilization that has ever had the misfortune to open their arms and their doors to them. The pattern is so consistent, and history tells its bloody story.

 

But because dissenting voices are allowed to dissent, and uncomfortable truths are allowed to be told, albeit in a confined environment with nowhere near the audience of CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN or the Fox Neocon Channel, the Jews are supposedly quaking in their boots. I don’t buy it and neither should you. In fact, they are doing damage control as we speak, damage control that should easily dam up any “troublesome” thoughts that might otherwise leak into the mental stream of the American collective sewer.

 

Just the other night after turning on the TV for probably the first time in a week, I noticed on my television’s guide, all in a 7:00 time frame, a special on the World Trade Center spinning out the phony 9/11 Arab hijacker story, a program on the History Channel chronicling the heroic uprising of a brave cadre of Jewish prisoners at a German Nazi concentration camp, and then another informatively slanted presentation on a military station that portrayed brave little Israel fighting for her very survival, keeping herself from being “pushed into the sea” by evil Arabs who were full of unexplainable hatred of Jews whom they simply enjoyed killing for fun. Then, over on the Judeo-Christian network there was a Jewish rabbi tearfully and whiningly begging in a Jewish effeminate nasal for generous donations from conservative Christians for the poor and starving children living in Israeli slums. What an absolute joke! Perhaps the rabbi didn’t have the Rothschilds on speed dial.

 

These are the kinds of propaganda pieces that awash the American mind with lies, half-truths and distorted white noise. Yet the Jews need to worry about shutting Patrick Grimm and Jayne Gardener up? Millions of people sit like nodding zombies and soak in the bilge that is Jewish “entertainment” while my blog will finally hit 6,000 page views sometime this week. Who are you trying to kid?

The Jew of the World

 

 

 

 

Nov 7, 2009

 

 

 

 

Jewry is the international albatross now hung around the neck of the world. What glorious destiny might have been ours without it. What we might have earned, what we might have discovered, what we might have accomplished without its enervating and meddling weight. But the weight remains; the expeditors of decline are running the store. Like a woman who spurns her man because he has no self-respect, we too have been spurned. The lives of our youth have been declared second-rate by those whose instruction books guide them in the ways of an alchemy-like supremacy. This supremacy turns civilizations not into the comely sparkle of gold, but to a termite-riddled rubble, a decaying mass of flotsam and jetsam.

 

The Jew of the World has made it clear, at least to his own brethren, that his allegiances to his host country have long since been frayed. His belief in nothing other than his own egotism now animates his breezily insouciant pursuit of a worldly kingdom of limitless treasure and corporate dominion. He now operates openly and unapologetically, yet still cobbles together a template of pseudo-intellectual respectability to cover his tracks.

 

My friends, it is time to rip the falsely pious front off of Jewry’s activities and expose their deeds to the light of day. The international Jews’ “light unto the nations” balderdash does not equal, in any shape or form, a candle of humble illumination. It is instead equivalent to the bare and ugly bulb that lights an interrogation room populated by Jewish “hate crime” bureaucrats and thought-control apparatchiks. This “light” is not a pleasant glow feeding the intellectual health of a jejune populace, but a raging and unquenchable fire burning our institutions to the ground. Was it not the Jew of the World who encouraged youthful rabble to “bring it all down, man”? Was it not this albatross, these very internationalists who cheered Communist ideologue Antonio Gramsci’s “long march through the institutions”? If our institutions are now not literally turned to cinders, then they are remodeled, restructured and realigned ideologically, so that they provide comfort, ease, accolades and succor to the Jew of the World. After all, he is fond of crowing about all those Jewish Nobel Prize winners, isn’t he?

 

The Jew of the World is quintessentially an internationalist. To this caliber of Jew, the health of his home country or its citizens is not of paramount concern. However, the health of the other Jews of the World is his be-all and end-all, his raison d’etre, the warm reassuring tribalism that has become his trademark. Their comfort is the end game. How does this type of Jew ensure the comfort of his fellow tribesmen?

 

That’s easy. He works to draw as little attention to himself and his brethren as possible. The only recognition Jews receive as Jews should be either as innocent victims who have fallen prey to non-Jewish perfidy or as humanitarians and activists supposedly working for the rights of all people. The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, a Masonic secret society of racialist Jews, concocts and frames all of their political activities to confirm this false impression amongst the public, whether they are doing “outreach work” aimed at blacks, Hispanics, Muslims or gaggles of worshipfully genuflecting Zionized Christian believers who bend the knee at the altar of Israel. In the minds of an unthinking and suggestible citizenry, Jewish machinations appear as altruism rather than as what they really are: crudely advantageous in-groupism.

 

Hence, Jewish-owned media outlets are proud to mention Jewish inventors, scientists, philosophers, doctors, authors and intellectuals, but fall silent when history reveals the preponderance of Jews involved in organized crime, loan-sharking, usury, unsavory business dealings, pornography, organ trafficking, sex slavery and terrorism. Any media slide show of Jewish history is rife with images of enlightenment, achievement and progress. Dozens of books celebrate a “Jewish Century.” Public television gushes about the Jewish role in the creation of the popular standard. Documentaries wax nostalgic about Jewish freedom riders who braved nightsticks and fire hoses selflessly as they helped blacks register to vote in the South even as they cheered on the segregated housing and Jews-only settlements in the Zionist state which practices government-sanctioned oppression funded by working Americans.

 

But there are no images conveying the human degradation, bondage and the lowering of the human spirit that the Jew of the World has brought to all peoples and lands with his activities, which would be looked on as shameful if perpetrated by any other tribe. No, Jewish “reality” is a break-neck cavalcade of dishonest and often discordant propaganda masquerading as truth, as empirical fact and as a desire for peace and tranquility. It is balderdash. In reality it is nothing more than bones and thin gruel fed to the non-Jewish world whose citizens are dim-witted enough to worship the very usurpers of their destiny and their heritage. But one will find it almost impossible to convince the non-Jew that the Jewish internationalist literally markets in lies as a means of making a living out of a killing. He is a lie-vendor and a truth-bender.

 

The Jew of the World’s media cannot help but be dishonest because its views derive from the character of the internationalist Diaspora’s tribalist mentality that circles the wagons when necessary and protects the in-group at all costs. Protection of the Jew requires lies. The tribalist Jew can only survive in a mish-mash of warring races, ethnicities and religions and a plethora of falsehoods which attempt to convince the host how wonderful the whole wretched arrangement really is. This is why multiculturalism is heralded, come what might, while what Kevin MacDonald calls “racial Zionism” is given cover and protection by the AP. And the Jew plays the profiting middle-man as the structures crumble and he protects his heritage come what may.

[Part 18]

 

[Benton Bradberry’s 2012 book, “The Myth of German Villainy” is a  superb, must-read, revisionist look at how the German people have been systematically, relentlessly and most importantly, unjustly vilified as the arch criminal of the 20th century. Bradberry sets out, coolly and calmly as befits a former US-Navy officer and pilot, to show why and how the German people have been falsely accused of massive crimes and that their chief  accuser and tormentor, organized jewry is in fact the real party guilty of monstrous crimes against Germans and the rest of the world.

 

In Part 18, the period between September 1939 and April 1940, known in America as the Phony War, in Britain as the Twilight War, and in Germany as the Sitzkrieg is discussed, with emphasis on the Russo-Finnish War, the German Norway/Denmark Campaign, the German invasion of Denmark and Norway, and Churchill replacing Chamberlain as Prime Minister.

 

Churchill, as First Lord of the Admiralty, unilaterally took it upon himself to order the mining of Norwegian coastal waters for the purpose of blocking German iron ore shipments. This was a flagrant violation of Norway’s neutrality, and it posed an intolerable threat to Germany. Germany reacted quickly by invading Denmark to facilitate the invasion of Norway. With the help of the German sympathizer Vidkun Quisling, head of the Norwegian National Socialist Party, the Norwegian armed forces stopped resisting the Germans and soon Norway was occupied by Germans and the subsequent British invasion was repelled. 

 

Churchill’s failure in Norway was then used by the pro-war faction to replace Chamberlain with Churchill as the Prime Minister  — KATANA.]

The Phony War 

 

 

 

 

 

Hitler was convinced that the future of Western civilization depended on the close cooperation of Germany with other European states, but particularly with her Aryan cousins, Britain and America. To Hitler, the big existential threat to Western civilization was Communist Russia, which he regarded as the base of Jewish world ambitions. He came to this conclusion as a young man when he first became interested in politics. He watched as the Bolshevik Jews took control of Russia and then launched their Red Terror. He watched as Jewish-led Communist revolutions sprang up all over Europe, which were organized and funded by the Comintern based in Russia, and backed by international Jewish banks. He came to power in Germany as an anti-Communist, and saw it as his life’s mission to fight Communism and to raise Germany up as a bulwark against the tidal wave of Jewish Communism which threatened to sweep over Christian Europe. He made every attempt to forge alliances with Britain and to have good relations with the United States, and was dismayed that his overtures were spurned at every turn. He was distressed and saddened that the threat to Western civilization posed by Communist Russia was not as obvious to the leaders of Britain and the United States as it was to him.

 

Hitler saw it as inevitable that Germany would eventually end up in a war with Communist Russia. It was only a matter of when, not whether. Soviet leaders were of the same mind. Hitler was convinced that Communist Russia would invade Europe, Germany first, at some time in the not too distant future whenever the Soviets felt strong enough to do so. When that day came, what he wanted more than anything was to avoid another two front war. Hitler had every interest from that standpoint alone in establishing and maintaining friendly relations with the other Western powers, particularly with Britain and the United States, in order to avoid any such likelihood. But he also wanted good relations with the other European nations because he believed that they each, like Germany, were an integral part of Western Christian Civilization, under siege by atheistic Jewish Bolshevism. The last thing Hitler wanted was a war with Britain and France. Pulitzer Prize winning author Louis Kilzer confirms this in his book, “Churchill’s Deception” – Simon & Schuster, (1994):

“‘Hitler did not want a world war, and had no stomach for fighting England,’ he wrote. But powerful forces in Britain and France wanted a war with Germany.”

 

Though Britain and France were in no position to intervene in Poland, they wasted no time in initiating military actions against Germany. The very next day after Britain and France declared war on Germany (September 3, 1939), RAF bombers bombed German warships in the Helgoland Bight (where the Elbe River flows into the North Sea). On September 7 the French crossed into the Rhine River Valley with 40 divisions to begin the “Saar Offensive,” but that effort was only half hearted and the offensive stopped just short of Germany’s defensive positions, known as the Siegfried Line, with only a few insignificant skirmishes taking place. The German army was preoccupied with the Polish war and did not mount a counter attack. No effort was made to oppose Germany’s occupation of Poland. So began an interlude variously known, in America as the Phony War, in Britain as the Twilight War, and in Germany as the Sitzkrieg, which began in September, 1939 and lasted until April, 1940. At times the situation seemed almost like a truce.

 

Nothing was happening on land, though a ferocious sea war was underway which became known as the Battle of the Atlantic. Britain’s great strength was her navy and she, along with France, immediately set up a total naval blockade to prevent shipments of any kind from either entering or leaving Germany. This was similar to the total blockade of World War I, which starved Germany into submission. Germany retaliated against the blockade with her submarine force.

The first shot of the Battle of the Atlantic was fired on September 3, 1939 when a German U-boat sank the British liner, the SS Athenia, off the coast of Ireland. When France and Britain declared war on Germany, Hitler was still hopeful of a diplomatic resolution. He believed that after the Polish campaign was completed and matters settled down again that he might be able to dissuade France and Britain from war. For that reason, he wanted to avoid provocations of any kind, and issued strict orders forbidding U-boat attacks on non-military ships. Unfortunately, the first ship to be sunk by a U-boat was the passenger liner Athena, which was a violation of Hitler’s order.

As Hitler had expected, this produced outrage among the Allies, as well as in neutral countries. The sinking of the Athena created the false impression that Germany intended to engage in unrestricted submarine warfare, as she had done during the First World War. But the sinking was done in error at dusk when it was difficult to see. The U-boat commander believed that the Athena was a warship. Hitler was furious, but the damage was done and no action was taken against the submarine captain.

 

On September 18, another German submarine sank the British aircraft carrier Courageous off the Scottish coast.

When the war in Poland came to a quick end on September 27, 1939, Hitler made a peace offer to Britain and France, but it was rejected by both. Churchill by now was back in the government in Britain as the First Lord of the Admiralty, and openly clamored for all out war against  Germany. He held Germany’s invasion of Poland up as proof that he had been right all along in warning of the Nazis plan to conquer the world. But, as described in previous chapters, Hitler had no such intention, and had no designs whatever on any West European state. Churchill and his gang of war mongers, including Duff Cooper, Lord Halifax, Anthony Eden, Robert Vansittart, and the Jewish controlled press, were working overtime whipping up war hysteria, nevertheless.

 

The Allied strategy during the Phony War was to hold defensive positions on land while maintaining its naval blockade to weaken the German economy, and to wage naval war. The British and French continued to re-arm at a rapid rate, and a sizable British expeditionary force was sent over to France. Belgium and the Netherlands were determined to stay out of the war. They maintained strict neutrality and refused to submit to pressure from Britain and France to move their troops into their countries.

On the 8th of October three U-boats were sunk by the British and another was sunk on October 13. On October 14, in retaliation, a German U-boat entered Scapa Flow and sank the British battleship Royal Oak while it was at anchor. Nothing was happening as yet on land, though the air and naval war expanded furiously. German U-boats stepped up their attacks on British merchant shipping, causing worrying losses.

The pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee conducted a particularly destructive raid in the southern Atlantic ocean, destroying nine merchant ships in the fall of 1939. The British cruisers Exeter and Ajax and the New Zealand cruiser Achilles damaged the Graf Spee in a battle off the coast of Uruguay on December 13. The German ship took refuge in the neutral port of Montevideo, Uruguay, where, the Uruguayans insisted, it could remain for only 72 hours. Faced with certain destruction by the Allied ships waiting in international waters just outside the harbor, the captain of the Graf Spee ordered it scuttled in the harbor on December 17.
