SORT BY Relevancy
Carolyn Yeager covers a number of items, issues and individuals that have captured her attention this week, all related to the theme of traitors.
Documents reveal parties responsible for causing WWI;
Traitors at the Federal Reserve;
Putin in denial, shades of Katyn;
More on Albert Speer's jew-friendly "remorse";
David Cole-Stein can't avoid the scrutiny of Robert Faurisson.
Carolyn Yeager continues her investigation into "what makes a traitor" by looking at The Cambridge Five: Upper-class British Trinity College students who began their unlikely career as Communist sympathizers and members of secret 'discussion group' clubs. Anthony Blunt, Guy Burgess, Kim Philby and Donald Maclean went on to become full-fledged Soviet agents during WWII and the Cold War. Guy, Kim and Donald eventually defected to the Soviet Union and died there. Blunt and Cairncross were outed but never prosecuted, remaining in Britain. But why did they want to do it in the first place? That is never satisfactorily explained by them but Carolyn offers some suggestions.
With Carolyn Yeager. What makes a traitor? Why are they hard to spot? Half German-half Russian Sorge has been called the best spy ever. He was probably responsible for the failure of German forces to take Moscow early in the Barbarossa campaign, when it would have made them unstoppable. What motivated him to excel at his chosen career? Are their warning signswe can recognize that would indicate men and women who might be less loyal to their homeland - more ready to help the other side? Sorge's story is a fascinating and instructive one.
On tonight's show, Mike will be making his triumphant return to corral the usual gang of horrendous misfits, social outcasts, terrible humans, bottom-dwellers, near-rapists, burglars, lawyers, insurance salesmen, and fatty, one-eyed ogres (and that's just Lew!) into the thin guise of a coherent, 45-minute program. Tonight we will be reconnecting with each other, since Mike seems to be the only glue-like substance keeping these dimwitted, barbarian bootlicks from chewing their own faces off. We'll also have our lovely Mick Ciallella performing another one of his world-famous Creep Corner segments, where he tells us how creepy and pathetic he is and we deride him and try to convince him to commit suicide. Kristy will regale us with an utterly unsurprising tale of her foray into some sort of redneck ho-down, where she, also unsurprisingly, consumed barely-filtered corn whiskey. Lew, as per usual, will grunt and fart along with the dialogue in a vague attempt at paying attention and/or interacting. Join us!
Carolyn Yeager relates how Speer's personal ambition brought him ever closer to Adolf Hitler as his architect, and to become the top man of 3rd Reich armaments development. Then, practically alone among the leading National-Socialists, he turned against both after the war and the Reich were lost. The manner in which he carried out his repudiation makes for an instructive lesson. Carolyn uses the writings of Speer himself and the memoir of Hermann Giesler to reveal Speer's underlying shifting nature beneath a brilliant exterior.
"The Edge of Tomorrow" is a new science fiction action film starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. In the film, Earth is in the middle of a war with alien invaders. William Cage (played by Cruise) is a spokesman and officer in the U.S. military. However, when he refuses to obey an order, he is stripped of his rank. Cage, who has been sent to a squad with a bunch of misfits, is thrust into the dangerous conflict as earth's military forces launch a D-Day style counterattack against the invading alien army.
Cage dies in the battle and the human army is defeated.
However, Cage awakens again and finds himself at the beginning of the day before the counterattack. Knowing what will happen the next day, Cage tries to warn everyone that the aliens have anticipated the counterattack and will crush the human army when it advances. However, the army is sent on the mission again, Cage is killed, and the humans are defeated. This "loop" happens several times with Cage repeatedly dying and waking up on the day before the counterattack. However, each time before he dies, Cage is able to learn valuable information about the tactics of the enemy. Each time he is sent into battle, he uses what he has learned to help the human army fare better against the aliens until they eventually come out victorious and Cage is instrumental in bringing down the enemy.
Wouldn't it be great if life worked that way -- if we constantly got the chance to relive our lives, learning from the mistakes of the past, and getting better with every successive existence?
Unfortunately, though, the adage is true -- you only live once. And you only die once too. In fact, the Bible says, "It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment." No, when it comes to life, we don't get do-overs. We don't perpetually exist on the edge of tomorrow, but on the edge of eternity.
