Carolyn Yeager discusses Racial Nationalism in the context of “Blood and Soil” National Socialism versus the confused ideas coming from Julius Evola that spirit, rather than ethnic substance, determines culture, and that there is such a thing as a “race of the spirit.”
The images in the slide show are of Evola at different stages of his life and two of his "futurist style" paintings.

Four years after making the 60-hour drive from Vancouver, British Columbia to Nashville, Tennessee, CAROLYN DAWN JOHNSON scored her first hit as a songwriter when Chely Wright took Single White Female all the way to #1. That success led to publishing deals and cuts with several other artists like Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Pam Tillis, Suzy Bogguss, and Jo Dee Messina. After signing a record deal with Sony’s Arista Nashville in 2000, CDJ released music of her own starting with her debut album entitled Room With a View. The project gave us the hit singles & much-loved songs Georgia, Complicated & I Don't Want You To Go. Besides vocals for her own albums, Carolyn can be heard on recordings with Martina McBride, Johnny Reid, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Kenny Rogers, Loretta Lynn, and Patty Loveless. To date, she has racked up nearly 20 CCMAs, as well as being crowned the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist in 2002. The American Music Awards hailed her as Favorite New Country Artist the following year. She's achieved success and recognition as a producer for other artists including producing the upcoming album for fellow Canadian Country artist Lisa Brokop. “I like to say that I’ve had many bonuses to my dreams … things, people, events and accolades, in addition to - and off the beaten path - from my original goals,” reflects CDJ. “I’ve certainly gone further then I actually imagined, but that doesn’t make me stop in my tracks. I just want to keep doing this for the rest of my life. Music truly is what makes my world go round.”
With Guest Paul Hickman. Carolyn and Paul go back to the Naval Defence Act of 1889 and trace from there tensions that built up between the UK and Germany. Some of the events and personalities they discuss are:
Cecil Rhodes and British expansionist ideas;
The Jameson raid and the Kruger telegram;
The 2nd Boer War;
The entanglement of the European royal families its effect on Kaiser Wilhelm II;
The fears brought about by the Berlin-Bagdad Railway;
Germany's increasing economic and trade strength;
The Zionist plan for Palestine and the Landman Document;
German help in fomenting revolution in Russia in 1916.
Saturday Afternoon with Carolyn Yeager returns to the airwaves! The last edition of this program was on April 12, 2014, a month and a half ago. It may not appear every Saturday, and may even show up on a different day than Saturday (!) if it is more convenient that way, but it will still be called SAWCY and archived under that category.
Also notice that the time has changed from 1pm Central to 2pm Central, one hour later than it was before. This is a better time for me and can still accomodate European guests.
Our current year 2014 is the centenary (100th anniversary) of what came to be called the First World War, originally "The Great War." This program will be the (rather tardy) beginning of shows pertaining to this most terrible of wars which, it is widely agreed, set the stage for the even more savage Second World War.
On the 70th anniversary of the Allied landing on Normandy's coast, known as D-Day, which was Friday, June 6, Carolyn looks at the possibility of treason as the reason for the poor Wehrmacht response to the invasion. Highlights include:
Generals and even Field Marshals serving in Northwest France in anticipation of the 1944 invasion were the same ones who participated in the July 20, 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler;
Most likely of all to be helping the enemy was Lt. General Hans Spiedel, FM Erwin Rommel's Chief of Staff, who had authority while Rommel was away and was slow to pass on information;
An unusual number of key leaders were away from their headquarters on June 6, but the weather was thought unfavorable for a landing;
Hans Spiedel was released by the French after the war and in 1957 was named Commander of the Allied Forces, Central Europe, an important NATO post, held until 1963;
The last installment of Oblt. Leopold Wenger's letters from the front have been published - comments are welcomre.
National Action is an organization of British youths who have come together for the purpose of influencing the indigenous White British people to take back their country from the extreme multi-culuralism in which it is now drowning. They do this through street activism, somewhat reminiscent of the National-Socialist "Stormtroopers" in Germany in the 1920's. The job today is more difficult for a number of reasons.
I'll be talking to the leader of National Action about his personal beliefs and inspiration, his organizational ideas, as well as his expectations for actual accomplishment.

Noon Wednesdays, "Let's Coach," hosts Carolyn Owens and Mark Thorn
Art Matters! The arts - dance, visual art, theater, music are all ways that we tell the stories of our time and our lives. With budgets cuts, arts programs are typically the first thing to go. Art enriches everyone’s life, but in many areas local public access is limited. Join Mark and Carolyn as they talk to Carrie Patterson and Donna Jordon about making arts accessible for everyone.
Carrie and Donna are both members of the Saint Mary’s County Arts Council and are very actively involved in supporting art and artists. The Mission of St. Mary's Arts Council is to increase awareness of the arts and enhance quality of life by supporting arts organizations. Every person has the right to access to the arts whether you are a child or a retired adult, and no matter what your economic situation. The challenges facing the Saint Mary’s County Arts Council in accomplishing their mission are faced by arts councils everywhere. Why so many challenges? Many do not understand the important role art plays in changing a community and the positive ripple effect that occurs.
So tune in as we discuss the declining support of the arts, the importance of art councils and why they are needed and how art can be a major resource to educate and create a community that is diverse, alive, creative, and vibrant.
If it ain't broke . . . make it better!
