  1. Thanks much for this interview, which I thought started out rather slowly, but then really got good at the end. I myself read David Hoggan's book, "The Forced War," which went over Hitler's foreign policy w. his neighbors and the Pole's insistence upon war, esp. regarding Pole's aggression against Danzig.

    I then, later, learned about Poles mass-murder of Germans--close to 50,000 dead--whose land had been caught-up within the Polish state which had illegally annexed former German territory.

    I hope u have Tedor on again and question him esp. about the allied insistence upon war and this mass-murder of Germans. Thanks again.

  2. Great interview.

    I am looking forward to reading this book now

  3. Fantastic interview ! Tedor has done the world a great service, our cause is just and true and we will prevail, in the end.. The work of people like Tedor blazes the way...

    Q. In what ways did the economics of NS compare to what Mussolini was doing in Italy with his 'corporatism' ? Also, can the economics of NS be contrasted to the Soviet economy?

    Once I read that Hitler didnt nationalize the German economy, he actually nationalized the German people. how much of this statement is true ?

    Ive read from David Irving that a group called the "Focus" was directing Churchill and his allies to prod Poland to defy Hitler. What more can you say about the "Focus" ?

    Im anxious to hear the next interview with Tedor- I want the name of the traitors- I think Admiral Canaris is one, how about Feodor von Bock? Rommel? This fascinating .

  4. (Cont.) As part of the next interview, I'd like to hear more about : The political structure in the Third Reich- what checks or balances existed upon the leadership? Could a Judges decision stop Hitler in certain endeavors ? ? Were 'Germany's versions of state governors' powerful enough to run their area ever so slightly differently than what Berlin wanted? What about plebiscites or referendums? How fair were these, or how often were they done?

    On economics, can you talk about how much Hitlers policy compared or contrasted with Keynesian ideas? How about the Goring four year plan? Agricultural policy? How significant were public works, such as building roads etc, in the overall policy?

    What was Hitler greatest failing or error? Military miscalculation ? In domestic policy? Ive read about his governing style, and am curious to learn if it was really as haphazard as is made out ( He allegedly would create two separate cabinet posts or committees and assign them the same task, in an effort to see which 'team' would produce the most desired result. This created a rivalry in the govt. that supposedly prevented factions from joining up to conspire against the leadership. I am unsure if this is true at all, so maybe Mr. tedor can shed some light on this. )

    Also, I would love to hear both John and Mr. Tedor discuss how close can the Americans ever go toward original National Socialism? if the movement was an organic outgrowth of its time and place, etc, then we can never quite adopt NS- we have to have something else, even if it remains similar. We need a NS that is Americanized and updated- what might this look like?

  5. A terrific documentary which tells the TRUTH about Adolf Hitler and Germany. Incidentally, John, this Documentary has awakened a "ton" on people to much needed truth. Please consider posting a link to it on your Blog:

    Type into your search engine:

    Adolf Hitler – The greatest story Never told (Full 6 hours Documentary)

    1. I have a link directly to this documentary on my website, and have interviewed Dennis Wise at least twice. It is a great documentary, very moving. I would encourage everyone to purchase a DVD copy of it and sit down and watch it with their family. :)

  6. As others say above, this was an excellent interview. Thanks once again, John. And thanks to Mr. Tedor for his work.

    I'm looking forward to the next interview and will buy the book.

  7. Good information. I think what they had in National Socialist Germany is definitely better than what we have here, however, I still hold that decentralized government is better. In National Socialism you basically have the government doing the work which the Church is responsible for (taking care of the poor and widows, etc.), and they do so voluntarily because of their Christian beliefs. If we had multiple local communities that controlled their own destiny, you still have the community spirit but you do not have a centralized ruler telling communities what they can and cannot do.

    1. Hmm, John Friends blog and he does not respond? Some good points by others. Must be really busy huh? Or, just don't care?

    2. Well Anonymous, to be perfectly frank yes I am really busy. The questions raised here will be addressed during the next interview with Mr. Tedor, which will take place in about two or three weeks. Stay tuned to the Blog Talk Radio page for The Realist Report for updates. I will announce them on the air as well.

      I do very much appreciate reader and listener feedback, by the way. I just can't sit down and respond to each and every comment, much less write a book addressing the questions raised. I think most people understand that. You must be the exception?

    3. Swiss Kinist and anonymous, I didn't hear John or Richard say that in the Third Reich church and other voluntary organizations were outlawed by a nanny-state. In fact I heard them talk about how the government encouraged civic engagement and that Hitler himself actually intervened when local officials (police and the like) were too heavy-handed.

  8. Really good show. Well done John and Richard.

  9. Swiss Kinist said:

    "In National Socialism you basically have the government doing the work which the Church is responsible for (taking care of the poor and widows, etc.)"

    I would rather say,

    in a normal society you see every decent person contributing, one way or another, to help the deserving poor. widows, etc.

    I don't see how that situation didn't obtain in the Third Reich just because the government, representing decent people (many of whom, like me, are ill-equipped to help widows or orphans and so on), was given some responsibility for those works.

    What's wrong with community nurses, midwifes, food-banks etc?

    [I tactfully leave aside the point that the church often has been the state, and the only education, health and welfare system available.]

  10. This was an excellent interview, and I'm looking forward to the next one. Benton Bradberry has also written a fine book on the subject, THE MYTH OF GERMAN VILLAINY. Perhaps you can interview him as well ?

  11. How do I get in contact with Richard?

    I've been reading thru the book a few months a couple times now. And I just can't believe all the quotes are legitimate and sourced.

    I was already a fascist and admirer before but these quotes are just astounding!
