    Deanna Spingola - Eisenhower's WWII Rhine Meadow Death Camps

    in Education

    Tonight Deanna Spingola returns to the show.


    With this show Deanna will walk us through a piece of WWII history that has been erased from the history books. The main stream narrative of the second World War majors exclusively on the Holocaust but never talks about Dwight Eisenhower’s Rhine Meadow Death Camps which claimed the lives of an estimated 1.5 million Germans. The running and condition of these enslavement camps was so deplorable that it is virtually incomprehensible to believe anyone, let alone a US general and later a US president, would have treated people in a way that can only be described as evil.


    For many, much of what you will hear in this show will be a surprise and perhaps even shocking. I encourage everyone to listen with an open mind and as you do remember the words of Winston Churchill; “History is written by the victors.”

    Japanese military strategy that determined final war decisions

    in Current Events

    Jane and her guest discuss the consequential moments of WWII as the Japanese highest military command wrestled with the Emperor on what solution was best for their country.  They had the moral dilemma of not wanting to admit defeat vs. accepting the perilous doom that the U.S. was going to try to make it impossible for the Japanese not to surrender.  Pride is one thing, death another but the casualty level became clear what decision to make.  SouthEast Asia did not think that Japan paid a high enough price even with the two Atom bombs being dropped.  Please tune in to this pivolal moment of history.  Some of the revelations are based on the examination of the movie, "The Longest Day."

    Listen to 94-year-old WWII veteran Leon Cooper - Returning to the South Pacific

    in Military

    Listen LIVE or Later 24/7 - 94-year-old WWII veteran Leon Cooper is returning to the South Pacific to film a sequel to the award-winning documentaries, “Return to Tarawa: The Leon Cooper Story”, and “Until They Are Home”, by Vanilla Fire Productions. Mr. Cooper has been on a personal mission for a decade to shine a light on the 88,000 MIAs from WWII that have never made it back from the war. Mr Cooper is asking everybody to contact Senators Boxer and Feinstein and Congressman Waxman to ask our Ambassador to the Phillipines to help Leon Cooper when he is in the Phillipines for the first two weeks of June 2014. I am shocked that the Ambassador has not responded. We need to help change that. Remember the words "Never Leave a Man Behind"?  That is not the case here and we as Americans need to help change this. Please Listen to this program and then Share this Program with everybody you can.
