The day Hitler was hailed the ‘greatest living German’ – by an English Prime Minister: Grainy footage of former PM David Lloyd George’s meeting with Nazi leader in 1936 emerge 80 years later

This remarkable footage captures the day David Lloyd George cosied up to Hitler during a pre-war trip to Germany before hailing him as ‘the greatest living German’.
The grainy black and white film shows the politician and his entourage travelling around Germany in 1936, where they dined with the Nazi ruler and rode together on new autobahns.

    If you don’t have this tract below and want a copy or a link, 14 Words, let me know. I’ll check back for your answer in a day or so. The site I copied it from is awful in a technical sense [I also use full security there], and I refuse to leave a link if I except from it. If you want the link you can have it, just let me know, or I can drop the full text here for you if you like. It is not astoundingly long. I’ll leave the first part. [This seems to be about 1/8th of the text].
    The Genocidal Churchill

    Background :

    This 1944 essay by Alfred Rosenberg analyzes a collection of Churchill’s pre-war essays. Rosenberg concludes that Churchill was long plotting war against Germany, supported from behind the scenes by the Jews. I am using Churchill’s original words from Step by Step: 1936-1939 (New York: G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 1939). With an occasional exception, the German translation is accurate, though the passages are, as one might expect, chosen selectively.

    The Source :

    Alfred Rosenberg, “Der Kriegsverbrecher Churchill,” Der Schulungsbrief, (March/April 1944), p. 20-22, 28.

    The War Criminal Churchill
    By, Alfred Rosenberg

    For many years, the main propagandist against the German people has been Winston Churchill, driven on by influential money from American and Jewish sources. It is therefore instructive to examine the career of this war criminal, using his own words.

    Even before he became prime minister, Churchill consistently agitated against Germany in his articles, angrily attacking above all anyone in England who strove for an understanding with Germany. Later, Churchill affirmed this journalistic agitation when he published his essays, only lightly retouched he said, in a book. He titled it Step by Step. It contained his essays written between 1936 and 1939. Step by Step was intended to suggest that the German Reich had intentionally caused the new world war, and that it was really Churchill who warned the so-called civilized nations about it. In fact, Churchill’s hatred of Europe’s Renaissance, and its peaceful order, flows from every line. Let me examine several unintentional admissions more carefully.

    One of the central points of Churchill’s thinking has to do with England’s billions of investments in the Far East. Everything centers around the opium trade and similar profitable businesses. Churchill clearly had interested big money in his closest circle, with whose favor and help he wanted to become prime minister of the kingdom of Great Britain. On 3 September 1937, he published an article titled “The Wounded Dragon,” by which he meant China. He wrote:

    No single power, except after long preparation, could impose its will upon Japan in the Yellow Sea. If the United States and Great Britain acted together jointly for several years, and if they were supported by Soviet Russia, representations could no doubt be made to which Japan would have to defer. [Rosenberg cuts to an intervening section without noting it.]

    We have created great establishments and businesses in China which have done nothing but good….”.

    “One may dislike Hitler’s system and yet admire his patriotic achievement. If our country were defeated, I hope we should find a champion as admirable to restore our courage and lead us back to our place among the nations.”
    From his Great Contemporaries, 1937.”

    There Was No Need
    For World War II
    By Alex S. Perry, Jr

    “Hitler’s mistake in not capturing Britain right away was based on his belief that he was in contact with a strong peace movement in England. The peace movement was controlled by Churchill, but Hitler did not know this. All the German letters and messages sent to the peace movement were intercepted by the British government. Rudolf Hess was invited to come to Britain by this fake peace movement to discuss and make plans for peace. The sole purpose for this deception of the Germans was to delay the end of the war with Germany until the United States could involve itself.”

    1. And indeed Hitlers greatest mistake was letting the British army go at Dunkirk. With Britain out of the war there would not have been 3 front, west, easy & North Africa. Also no convoys supplying Russia & no D-Day. Germany would have defeated Russia in 1941.

      1. The so-called “Halt Order” was a very major mistake. Deprive the British of their best troops and you won’t be seeing them arrayed against you in North Africa. But, arguably, the greatest military blunders Hitler committed were on the Eastern Front against the USSR. Rather than ordering Guderian to turn south in August, 1941 to surround Kiev, continue on to beyond Moscow before winter sets in. His unrealistic appraisal of Russia and his thinking that he could defeat them so easily were also problematic. The German economy should have been working on armaments 24/7 in 1939 – 1942. (The women could have worked in the factories.) If all had been done correctly, the war might have been won by the summer of 1942.

    I realize that your topic is on the great man, Hitler, 14 Words, but Churchill may be among the main reason why Hitler’s greatness has not been universally recognized. That may be due to reasons other than that Churchill was a jew through his matrilineal line, Jenny Jerome. Dr. William Peirce tells us about, “The Buying of Mr. Churchill”.

    “CHURCHILL’S relationship with the Jews changed markedly during his political career. In the 1920’s and the early 1930’s he was not afraid to criticize Jews occasionally – or to praise Hitler – but after receiving 150,000 pounds from Henry Strakosch In 1938 he thenceforth uttered only the most extravagant praise for Jews and the most vitriolic condemnations of Hitler and Germany. Even as early as 1920, however, Churchill was careful to salt his criticisms of “bad Jews” and their destructive activities with obsequious references to “good Jews” and their supposed benevolence. This article [see the Appendix for its full text. — Ed.] in the Illustrated Sunday Herald of February 8, 1920, roused the Jews to a fury against Churchill, because it exposed communism as a Jewish plot for world domination. Churchill’s praise of Zionism and his erroneous attribution of Christian morals and philosophy to Jews did little to salve their outrage. It is difficult to decide whether the rose-colored view of Zionism expressed here is due to naivete or hypocrisy. Perhaps he genuinely believed that Zionism was a movement “in harmony with the truest interests of the British Empire,” rather than an alternative Jewish plot for world domination fully as evil and dangerous as communism; perhaps not.”

    Churchill’s intent for Germany prior to leading the world into WW2 – may best be determined by hearing Churchill’s words – which were said following WWI.

    “Perhaps the next time round the way to do it will be to kill women, children and the civilian population”.

    From the section – Britain/Churchill:

    Also, Winston Churchill: “We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not.” – Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast)

    “Germany becomes to powerful. We have to crush it.” – Winston Churchill (November 1936 to US-General Robert E. Wood)
