  • AOC, Will You Please Think Of The Children?

    While it has taken several months for the mainstream media and the majority of Democrats to catch on, there is finally bipartisan consensus regarding the existence of an immigration crisis at the United States-Mexico border. When reports of appalling conditions at some border detention facilities began to spread, it became clear that there was a moral imperative that something must be done to combat this undeniable humanitarian crisis.On Thursday, the House passed a bipartisan Senate humanitarian aid package which allocates $4.59 billion in supplemental border funding with the ultimate goal of addressing the reports of unacceptable conditions at migrant detention...
  • Chernobyl and Concentration Camps

    I just finished watching the amazing HBO miniseries "Chernobyl." It's one of the finest series ever produced. The biggest takeaway is how socialists and communists lie. It's in their DNA. They lie about everything. And those lies are often so absurd they get themselves in trouble. When it came to Chernobyl, the Soviet communist propaganda machine lied about everything. Officials denied there was any problem in the first place. Then they denied it was a complete meltdown. They denied nearby towns had to be evacuated. They denied the KGB knew there was a potential problem long before it happened but...
  • Holocaust Museum Rejects Analogies To The Southern Border (AOC Claims She Didn’t Mean Nazi Camps)

    The Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC has published a statement rejecting the kind of analogy Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made recently when she called migrant detention centers along the southern border “concentration camps.” The statement was posted on the museum’s website as a press release: The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary. That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now. The link to the Museum’s statement is...
  • The Problem With Ocasio-Cortez's Shameful Ignorance of History

    "The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is what they are." -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. In April 1944, two Slovakian Jews named Alfréd Wetzler and Rudolf Vrba escaped from Auschwitz and provided two of the first eyewitness accounts of the horrors of the European concentration camps. Both men had been rounded up with a group of their countrymen and sent to the Birkenau section of the camp in the spring of 1941, where they were immediately put to work as slave labor. This was before the German regime had properly streamlined and industrialized efforts to...
  • Please Don't Shut Up, AOC

    Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may seem harmless, but she's a virtue signaler on steroids and a nonstop headline-manufacturing machine. The left adores her, and for conservatives, she's a gift that keeps on giving — because she is either too naive or arrogant to rein herself in. Don't listen to those who advise not to be roped into her spotlight-seeking trap. Give her all the attention she craves — and more rope. AOC conspicuously put her foot in her mouth again, but she clearly likes the taste of it because she refuses to remove it. "This administration has established concentration camps on...

    Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer strongly criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's comparison of immigration detention facilities to Holocaust concentration camps during his show Tuesday. "The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps," the New York Democrat said Monday. "I want to talk to the people that are concerned enough with humanity that 'Never Again' means something," she continued. "The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it." Fox News...

    Full title :Heartwarming moment World War II veteran, 94, is reunited with man he saved from Nazi concentration camp in 1945 A 94-year-old World War II veteran was reunited with one of the prisoners he helped liberate from the Dachau concentration camp. Retired U.S. Army corporal Sid Shafner said he was among the first Allied troops to reach the Nazi camp in April 1945, and that he is the last surviving member of his unit. His tearful reunion with Marcel Levy, 90, who was a teenager when he was liberated, came during a recent tour of Europe and Israel. 'You...

    Jewish community leader trapped inside Auschwitz concentration camp after getting locked in while filming a television show on the 70th anniversary of its liberation.

Riccardo Pacifici was doing a television interview after the ceremony to mark the 70th anniversary of the camp’s liberation, when he realised the camp’s gates had been closed. Mr Pacifici was locked in with Jewish community spokesman Fabio Perugia, the television host and two technicians. Mr Pacifici, whose grandparents died in the camp, spent...

    Amongst the findings were shoes and photos hidden by Jewish prisoners of the Holocaust. PRAGUE - House owners rebuilding their attic in the Czech town of Terezinhave found photos, shoes and other possessions of Jews forced into a ghetto there under Nazi rule, a heritage project said on Thursday. Terezin (Theresienstadt), a fortress and garrison town built at the end of the 18th century, was used by the Nazis as a transit camp for Jews rounded up in Czechoslovakia and deported from elsewhere in Europe. They were held in the ghetto until they could be transported to camps farther east....

    Executive Directive 51 was signed by George W. Bush in 2007, which gives the US Federal gov’t the power to declare impose martial law in the event a ‘national emergency’, giving the White House and Homeland Security (DHS) the ability to detain millions of Americans on US soil under Rex 84 and other military programs previously planned and run as inter-agency exercise drills. A number of bloggers, patriot groups, survivalists and preppers have compiled lists of FEMA Camp locations, but much of the reporting is still isolated and anecdotal.

    Hitler's GI Death Camp I came across this video on NetFlix a few weeks back. Shortly after, I then found someone had uploaded it to You Tube. I watched it for a third time last night with my mom on my little phone. I think it's well done and very emotional. Amazing what these men went through and survived. I have so much respect for these men. On the You Tube thread, one of the posters said that her father, Norman Fellman, who was one of the GI's featured in the documentary, passed away just this past August. God bless...

When Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi decided to investigate his family's unknown Holocaust history, he turned to the skill he knew best: He began to dig. After learning that two of his uncles were murdered in the infamous Sobibor death camp, he embarked on a landmark excavation project that is shining new light on the workings of...

    Three Catholic martyrs executed under the Nazi regime were beatified in Germany today, June 25. The event was also noteworthy for its rememberance of their Lutheran companion.Fathers Hermann Lange, Eduard Müller and Johannes Prassek, along with Lutheran pastor Karl Friedrich Stellbrink, were guillotined in a Hamburg prison in November 1943. The Nazi regime found them guilty of “defeatism, malice, favoring the enemy and listening to enemy broadcasts.” At a ceremony in the northern German city of Lubeck, Cardinal Angelo Amato, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, declared the trio of Catholic clergy to be ‘blessed.’ He...

    No one really knows how bad it is, but it’s much worse than I thought possible. Piecing together information from satellite images and eye witness accounts, Amnesty International suspects that the horrific concentration camps in North Korea are growing. Some 200,000 people live as slaves – enduring starvation, torture, and rape while performing hard labor. Many die every year, only to be replaced by fresh bodies. Of those that survive, few will ever be released. Deemed ‘prisoners’, the victims of North Korea’s political pogroms are interned for the smallest criticisms of the regime of Kim Jong-Il, and when they are...

    Claws bared in row over shelter for Auschwitz cat OSWIECIM, Poland (Reuters Life!) - A cat living at the former Nazi death camp of Auschwitz has caused fur to fly between an animal care group and Polish authorities refusing to allow a shelter to be built for it. The grey and white cat, known variously as Rudolf or Bruno despite being female, can often be seen sitting near the notorious "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work sets you free") sign at the entrance to the camp. She has seemed unperturbed by an unusually cold winter in Poland that has seen night temperatures...

    Closure of Soviet Concentration Camps Where ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ First Appeared Recalled 23 December 2009 By Paul Goble VIENNA – The theft of the sign, “Arbeit Macht Frei,” which hung over the entrance to the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz has not only sparked international outrage but also called attention to the place where those words first hung at a place of detention of the innocent in the 20th century – the Solovetsky Camps of Special Assignment in the USSR.

The news agency reported that the construction of the convent will entail demolishing the old building that housed the offices of the Nazi officials who ran the camp.  The land where the camp is located belongs to the municipality of Emsland, which has granted approval for the construction.

    They call it "the Killing Compound" – the area of Camp 22 in North Korea's largest concentration camp. Hidden away in the mountains in a remote northeastern corner of North Korea, close to its borders with Russia and China, Camp 22 has been purpose-built for the regime's scientists to have an unlimited number of prisoners on which to experiment. Thousands of men, women and children are trucked to the nearby town of Haengyong. There they wait and, just as Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele did at Auschwitz, the North Korean physicians single out those who will die in gas chambers, or...
