Hunting Hitler challenges the the biggest story of World War II - the suicide of Adolf Hitler. Is it possible that Hitler faked his own death and lived out the rest of his life in Argentina? Author Jerome Corsi shares why it is not just plausible, but likely. With no physical evidence, corpse, photos, or even documentation to prove that Hitler committed suicide, there are far more questions than answers.

Dr. Ron Milione makes his way to Spaced Out Radio to discuss one of the America's biggest kept secrets, The Philadelphia Experiment.
The Philadelphia Experiment was originally conducted as a World War II experiment by the United States Navy to make the USS Eldridge, a naval destroyer escort, invisible to radar.
“The Philadelphia Experiment was allegedly conducted by the Navy during WWII for the purpose of learning how to absorb radar so as not to allow reflections from enemy radar pulses impinging on a ship target to be returned. The reported effects of this experiment were so dramatic and startling that it is supposed that this is why the Navy consistently denies that any such experiments ever took place. Supposedly, not only were radar waves absorbed, but the ship became invisible at ordinary light wavelengths as well.
Dr. Ron Milione? thinks the physics of the Philadelphia Experiment be traced back Tesla’s investigation of the rotating magnetic field.
In a brilliant, prescient analysis of the stubborn resilience of Nazis to fight on despite the ostensible end to World War II, this 1945 Academy Award winning short documentary explains how it is that what was - and is - The Nazi Underground has reared its evil head to seize global control in the 21st Century.
The great news: after decades of non-vigilance, America is back on Patrol.
Cloaked in all sorts of disguises, The Nazi Underground has infilitrated every political party and every 'important' organization on this planet. They've sabotaged, and commandeered. They've bought, and silenced. They've assassinated. In the spirit of their demon-god Adolf Hitler, with the power of all hell's demons, they've deceived.
Seven decades later, Hitler [indeed] Lives, as the world battles Hitler's Master Plan for One World under The Nazi Reich, with Adolf Hitler's grandson Bâri' Hitler-Shabazz a.k.a. Barack Obama's Fourth Reich Headquarters at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C.
They're sneaks, they're stealth; our fight is tougher than ever. But woe betide them: By Their Deeds, We Know Them.
And this time, America will get the job done.
Historian Heather Voight talks about her new book, "Passionate Crusaders: How Members of the U.S. War Refugee Board Saved Jews and Altered American Foreign Policy during World War II."
About Passionate Crusaders:
Passionate Crusaders tells the gripping story of a few righteous Americans who sought to do what many thought impossible in 1944--save Jews who had not yet been murdered in the Holocaust.
By January 1944, Treasury Department officials Henry Morgenthau, John Pehle, and Josiah DuBois had already convinced President Franklin Roosevelt to create the War Refugee Board, an agency with the authority to provide rescue and relief for Jews and other groups persecuted by the Nazis.
Scholars have criticized the Board for its inability to save more Jews and maintained that the agency should have been created sooner. Heather Voight's groundbreaking research proves that despite its shortcomings, the War Refugee Board changed history and forever altered American foreign policy. Its creation ended the cycle of indifference that the government and the American public had shown to victims of the Holocaust. In the words of Henry Morgenthau, from 1944-1945 "crusaders, passionately persuaded of the need for speed and action" risked their reputations and sometimes their lives to save Jews.
In addition to saving more than 100,000 lives, Board members also made a lasting impact on international law. They pressured the War Crimes Commission to broaden its definition of war crimes by including the murder of civilians by their own countrymen. This new definition of war crimes was applied to genocides committed many decades later in Bosnia and Rwanda, and continues to be used today.
About Heather Voight: Heather Voight is a successful freelance writer and history blogger. She has a B.A. in History and English.
