The Liberty Movement, the Mind of Rosenthal, & the Power of the Progressive Deep State
By TLB Contributing Author: Ken LaRive
What we thought as children we may no longer see or even understand today. We grow up, and our lives, and thoughts, become more complex. So too, the ideologies and convictions that men and countries once held sacred in history; philosophies and belief systems once revered as sincere and honorable, might someday fall to dust, and soon after be forgotten. After war, there is a transference, as one reality displaces another. And then, history rewritten by the victor to justify the methods used to win, and to promote a new agenda, becomes the new norm. This transition also incorporates Taboo, based on fear, and this, above all, inhibits historical truth. This is a powerful consideration, because without truth, the future does not belong to you. It takes an amazing amount of courage to push back, to explore, to study, in a world owned and operated by a powerful institutional mindset. But what can be more important? Without the study of our past revelations and failings, surely we will be doomed to repeat them, and the glory our cultures once possessed, along with its mistakes, will be assigned to the dustbin. Once forgotten, we are doomed to repeat them again, and again, like slaves under the lash.
Last month in New Orleans, the Progressive right tore down historical sites that represented a once viable culture and history. Propaganda and a rewritten history justified that action. A few powerful men said those sites were no longer relevant and racist in the new Marxist Society they are building (yet that term is never mentioned), and in the dead of night removed them in a very disrespectful way, transferred with little or no opposition, without any fanfare, to an obscure junk yard.
But the pendulum of history is fickle indeed, and already there is a movement of resurgent resistance that may someday be in power, and those belittled icons representing those lost to war, honorable ideals our forefathers suffered and died to give us by their blood, treasure and culture, may indeed rise again, but that is a very rare occurrence. Once lost, the winner gains power… Indeed, there are a score of examples of this being played out on our beautiful earth as I write this, with new lines drawn on maps, and cultures destroyed, or displaced. Europe, is one of many. The Europe our ancestors died to defend, is being systematically destroyed by the Progressive movement, and resettled by a new and intolerant race and religion, as bankers’ profit. The gates are open, and they want our American gates open too, as the chaos is indeed lucrative. It is in the chaos, the division, the lack of Truth, where our Liberty is destroyed, and I will let no threats deter me from understanding it.
As we matriculate, our world is transformed by the games of tyrannical men, and as we attempt to survive and learn, to adapt, we see that truth is the most valuable in our quest to remember the past. Without it we can never make a viable decision to connect the golden times of yore with the here and now, and so can have no viable future plans. That void is filled with tyranny, and liberty remains just a pipe dream. Taking pause, in the vacuum of time and space, we might ask the same timeless questions our ancestors did, “If we knew then what we know now, would the outcome have been any different?” Most likely, emphatically, it would, but possibly not for the reason we might suppose. The original ideology might remain the same, as some are timeless value even now. Yes, the ideal may stay the same, only a second chance, another method to get a more positive outcome… Is Trump our second chance?
Culture, ideology, faith, truth, gives us a great strength, and grounds us as a nation, and yet we sit back and let it be diminished. What value is knowing this truth today? Everything! What we were in the past is called our heritage, and no person, institution, religion, or any power has the right to destroy that. It is our right to know the mind of our ancestors. No taboo should stop its learning, and anything that tries to stop it surfacing should be considered our mortal enemy. A true slave does not even consider this, but those in the Liberty movement does…
In our age, the Progressive movement is attacking many of the social norms that made us a viable and great people. Masculinity, what is feminine, what is consider moral, i.e., what is good and bad and right and wrong are purposefully undermined at every turn. Liberty and its freedoms, our Bill of Rights, our Constitution, our civil Liberty, are all under duress, and new inspired race-bating in conjunction with orchestrated false flags keeps us divided and unable to fight for a common cause. It insures, in that process, that the power elite will grow more dominant and intrusive. History shows this trend has repeated itself many times, and that we keep making the same social mistakes, and as elitist power grow, the individual, and his ideals, fade from memory along with his heritage. It is a cycle, but know this… tyrants always, sooner of later, topple in their own footprints, as we the people push them over in some form of bloody revolution. Let us pray this is a non-violent rebellion, but that has never occurred in the history of mankind. Never. And what does violence insure? Little or nothing, because as soon as the dust settles a new set of tyrants emerges from the ashes, stimulated by a lack of visionary leadership, and the people’s inability to govern themselves. This is why our founders gave us a Constitution, a Republic based on civil liberty and constitutional law, and why it is not taught in our mandated Progressive-run school systems.
Many are confused today, and too close to history to see the transitions taking place, but those who have dominated us for hundreds of years are fearful that their hold on us is in jeopardy.
At this point, I would like to say just a few sentences describing a powerful truth, and I know that for some it will be unpalatable, and scary too. Never-the-less it must be stated…It is a truth that is denied us by the powers who now control our very spirits, slavery of the spirit. It is found in my studies that the same forces that destroyed Germany from the inside out, now has us by the throat. This mindset, by a few well connected and cohesive men, have not only changed the face of Europe and America both then and now, but have influenced the entire world as well. They have the ability to print money out of thin air, with trillions unaccounted for… Fort Knox is off limits for fifty years, and the money and assets that belong to we the people have been usurped by them. They own us all, the minds of our children, our assets, and our future. We are their cattle, their slaves, and manipulate us to do their bidding, for the profit they glean by force.
Christianity has fallen in Europe. Take a look. Churches are being sold, the interiors filled with high-end condominiums, and those who still exist do so with the money from tourism, or the coffers of Rome where their banks are replenished from the Americas. Those in power are opening borders to facilitate the demise of culture, the only cohesive strength of a civilization, and being replaced by the power of oligarchs.
Culture, heritage, is the strength in our arms, the conviction we rise to accept as our standard, and an honorable and meaningful purpose for a fulfilling life.
Leni Riefenstahl was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1902, and died on Monday, the 8th of September 2003, in Poecking, Germany, just a few weeks after her 101st birthday.
She was blessed with a multitude of seemingly effortless and magical talents that sparked from her like a roman candle. Her charming and flamboyant wit, her wondrous creative visions and imaginings focused energy that would not be denied. She blossomed in everything she attempted to do. Her exuberance silenced every room she entered, and lines would form for days just to catch a glimpse of her arrival.
In that vivid flash of time nearly everyone in the free world knew her name. Long before Hitler’s 3rd Reich advanced into Europe and millions upon millions fell and suffered under their whim, Leni worked and created for the cause.
Her tragedy might seem moot today in retrospect of the horrible loss of humanity that coincided with her life. She was caught up in a machine that she helped grow by propaganda and party-line promotion. In that process, she broke new ground and mastered her art…
You will hear that she was a dancer, an actress, an artist, a photographer, a filmmaker, and a yes, a Nazi collaborator.
First discovered as a dancer, she was renowned throughout the country and choreographed her own solo dance recital she performed on both the German and European stage. As she grew into a beautiful woman she became the top actress of her time, staring in films that broke ground in a brand new artistic medium called “The Silver Screen.”
She was a natural, a quick study, and rapidly went from leading lady alongside the great Louis Tucker, to simultaneously work under the direction of the famous Arnold Fanck, who saw in her great directing promise.
In 1932 she became internationally famous as a woman producer, director, inventor of images, and also leading actress in her first feature film “The Blue Light”. It was an immediate success, and soon after “Triumph of the Will” was produced, her most controversial documentary about the Sixth Nazi Party Rally of 1934 Nuremberg.
She used her cinema-graphic genius to transform a murdering fascist’s regime into what appeared to be benign saviors. But who at the time could foretell the future, as Hitler received enthusiastic positive press around the world.
Though history is distorted about those times, where shock and pain have created predisposed taboo and history is written by the winner, some historians indicated that Hitler justified his future actions by blaming Germany’s financial failings on Jewish banker conspiracies, who, he contended, were controlling government.
In his book “Mein Kampf”, he outlines his hatred for those he felt stole from the Germans: businesses, money, and land. He thought that Germany was in the mess it was after World War One because the Government of that time let the Jews gain overwhelming power, and corruption was rampant and out of control.
He pointed out that European Jews were trying to turn Germany into a Jewish State, and that the German people would become, in essence, their slaves. As their economy floundered, the German people rallied to the cause. No one seemingly knew, not even the US, some say, of his contentions, or the drastic and radical steps he would take in the future.
Leni’s inventive timing and camera angles had never been seen before, and to this day is considered the greatest propaganda film-maker ever, setting the stage and influencing countless others throughout the world. This one singular work, “Triumph of the Will,” so early in her career, catapulted her to fame and fortune, but would haunt her to the day she died.
Her next film called “Olympia” has been rated as one of the best top-ten documentary films ever produced, and was the instant rave of America’s Hollywood and public, as much of what we see in our early cinema was copied from her original techniques. She artistically depicted, before Hitler’s decline in favoritism, the beauty and grace of Berlin’s 1936 Olympics German athletes as the superior Aryan race, artistically and psychologically compared to the ancient Greeks.
There should be no shame in being ambitious, especially when so talented. Her ability to create must have been a powerful force inside her, and though she never belonged to the Nazi party herself, she did know Hitler and his party leaders.
She must have been involved in some grand balls and extravaganzas, being so beautiful and able to promote the ideals of the party so vividly. Hitler’s Germany and Leni’s pictures were even displayed in our own National Geographic Magazine of that time.
With WWII at a close, Riefenstahl was put on the black list, as were many of our own artists here in America. What a blow that must have been for her! Loudly she defended herself, saying she was no Nazi Pawn, but her destruction was set.
She never quit trying to create, however, and continued the attempt to leave a luminous creative mark. She picked up the still camera and spent years photographing the North African Nubian tribes and rallied world acclaim in the productive effort and result. Her photographic book “Africa”, gave Leni Riefenstahl a new substance in both press and review; “Riefenstahl’s photographs preserves a mythic vision of the Eden before the Fall, a romantic lost world, captured in images as powerfully seductive as the artiest herself.”-V Magazine, Los Angeles.
At 71 Riefenstahl took up both scuba diving and underwater photography with the same verve, and her film-making has been called, “…pure dazzling.” One recent film called “Underwater Impressions,” shows the ocean world with a new glittering perspective, amazingly insightful and long-lasting.
But then, woven in her constant attempts to create, ghosts from the past continually followed and hounded her. Even the Gypsies, who she supposedly used for extras from a local prison camp, tried for years to sue her as responsible for their plight. She won these battles, but paid a great price in time and negative press.
To have so much talent, so much passion for the art, and so much standing in the way is pitiful to behold. Some have written that she never recanted; was never apologetic for her involvement, or admitted responsibility. Perhaps she thought she was morally justified, but her thoughts were obscured.
It might be speculated by a romantic that if she had been born in America she might have gone down in history as one of the best propaganda and documentary filmmakers of the genera, and after the war move from Silent to talkies unhampered. Of course those early propaganda and documentary films would be our own, and most likely she would now be considered a true American patriot.
Author’s note: Leni was caught up in the times of a world of flux and change. In some emphatic ways they were very similar to our own American plight today. Those who attempt to separate from the status quo in the present day by taking a stand for what they believe, like anti-war, anti-big government, anti-socialism and nationalism, are ridiculed, marginalized, ostracized, and humiliated. Surely we are accountable for what we do, but doesn’t that depend on whose side we give our allegiance, and who is in control and domination at the time?
Today, our liberal media under Government control instills taboo, lies and half truths, and disrespects those who might take an unpopular stand against their authority and agenda. It seems that taking a stand or not can have similar consequences in retrospect, and only with a crystal ball can we determine an outcome, and our accountability.
It is easy to look back with condescension for Leni today, but viewing the wide array of indicators we are grappling with, form an unaccountable Federal Reserve, International bankers, a ultra-liberal/nationalistic/socialistic/Progressive mindset controlling our country, it seems that the same threats that overtook Germany is happening to America today.
There are many ways to control and dominate a country, and the same propaganda techniques created long ago can gain that powerful foothold without firing a shot. Losing liberty in increments, has seemingly gone unnoticed but for those who remember when collective voluntary servitude was in infancy. History repeats itself, and we should pay attention, and study it openly without fear. The more truth we demand, the clearer we can see ourselves, and our place in the future. As liberty diminishes, so too does truth.
We can indeed learn from Leni Rienfenstahl, if only to realize that element in her failed recognition, or misinterpretation for those she supported. But then, it must also be considered that she felt entirely justified, and consciously knew what her involvement might mean. In fact, she thought she was one of the good guys until the day she died.
I think she would now agree, that the Progressive Marxism that have us by the throat today, is the same ideology that both Germany and Russia fought against, and lost.

The Truth does not fear investigation.
Ken LaRive – Facets: It’s a simple but beautiful metaphor. Our soul is likened to an uncut diamond, pure, perfect, and unrealized. Each learned experience cleaves a facet on its face, and leaves it changed forever. Through this facet, this clear window, new light, new questions and ideas take shape and form. This process is our reason for being …
