That's just a made up story by the lizard people to hid the fact that the Tri-Lateral Commission snuggles him off to Argentina so he could fake the moon landing.

Speer was a lying opportunist, but his description of how everyone in the bunker reacted when FDR died is fascinating. (Hitler and his followers believed that he was Frederick the Great, and so would be saved as Frederick was when the Russian Empress died suddenly just as he was surrounded: "Hitler caught sight of me and rushed toward me with a degree of animation rare in him these days. He held a newspaper clipping in his hand. "Here, read it! Here! You never wanted to believe it! Here it is!" His words came in a great rush. "Here we have the miracle I always predicted. Who was right? The war isn't lost! Read it! Roosevelt is dead!"
"He could not calm down. He thought this was proof of the infallible Providence watching over him. Goebbels and many others were bubbling over with delight as they exclaimed how right he had been in his reiterated conviction that the tide would turn. Now history was repeating itself, just as history had given a hopelessly beaten Frederick the Great victory at the last moment. The miracle of the House of Brandenburg! Once again the Tsarina had died, the historic turning point had come, Goebbels repeated again and again and again." (Inside the Third Reich, 549)

That was April 12, 1945. He'd kill himself within a few weeks.

According to US Army reports, about 25% of the German population still believed in Hitler at that point--they said he'd been badly served by his underlings.

Hitler lives in one of those crates in that big warehouse at the end of Indiana Jones.
He calls it his "Adolfort".

hitlers last witness is a great book by rochus misch (d. 2013)

he was the telephone exchange operator in the Führerbunker up until the very last seconds and very familiar with the man himself.  some great insight in that book

he would speak of things like they had to change the line directly into Hitler's suite because some jerks kept prank calling it, along with a few other things he would do himself (ringing mr. Heiliger and miss Nacht on xmas night, patching them through then eavesdropping on the ensuing argument of who called who and what theybwant)

anyway, fantastic book

Ah, yes, today we honor the anniversary of the untimely death of the man who killed Hitler. He may not have done many good deeds in his life, but that one made up for all his wrongdoings.

/At least, I'm pretty sure that's how history will remember it...

26% of the eligible electorate voted for Trump.

27% believed Bush Jr. was doing a good job before the 2008 election.

It seems there is a pattern.

Seldom in human history, never in modern times, had a man so insignificantly monstrous become the absolute head of a great nation.

Well that pretty much hits our current situation right on the nose.

I found out yesterday that one of the prevalent Flat Earth hypotheses is that the round Earth idea is a lie spread by the Jews to keep people from visiting Antartica where Hitler and the Nazi's live in a city under the ice.

So Richard Spencer and other neo-Nazis, if your listening, get Antartica and start digging.  Don't worry about bringing many provisions, you'll be with your idol soon.

Well, it's a mildly interesting factoid.  Unless you're talking about reincarnation or something.
