    Hitler watercolor to go under hammer in US

    LOS ANGELES (AFP) -
    A still-life watercolor painting of flowers by a young Adolf Hitler will be sold at auction in Los Angeles this week, organizers announced Monday.

    The 1912 canvas, painted by the Nazi-leader-to-be when he was a struggling artist in his mid-20s, is going under the hammer at the Nate D. Sanders auction house on Thursday.

    The 13.5- by 10.75-inch (34.3- by 27.3-cm) painting shows a blue ceramic pitcher holding orange, red and soft pink flowers -- an unusual subject at a time when Hitler was focusing more on landscapes and architecture.

    Bidding for the canvas will start at $30,000.

    Hitler moved to Vienna as a young man to try to make it as an artist. Ironically, a Jewish art dealer believed in his talent and sold several Hitler paintings to wealthy Viennese Jewish clients beginning in 1911.

    When the anti-Semitic Nazi leader swept to power in the 1930s his forces seized Morgenstern's gallery and he was deported to the Lodz Ghetto, where he died in 1943, according to the Los Angeles auction house.

    I bet it goes for way more than the $30k.

    What Hitler actually did was find a third economic path forward, not Communism and not the debt slavery we seem to be saddled with. For that he was thoroughly damned and Germany and utterly destroyed.

    You have proof? Ever research the topic? That "six million" figure is a mistranslation of the Torah, and it appears over and over in early 20th Century Zionist fundraising material.

    I can't name another topic that's discouraged and/or forbidden from being questioned. The truth does not fear examination.

    OH WAIT I LOST MY MIND. WWII was OF COURSE fought to protect the Jews. Hitler HIMSELF shoved Anne Frank, screaming, into a furnace. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS.

    "Nazi Death Camps(tm)". Which had cabarets, swimming pools, brothels, et cetera. Oy vey.

    Any other theories? How about Obama's birthplace? Any inside info on Area 51 or Alien autopsies? What about that deal in Point Pleasant, WV where the mothman warned everyone about the bridge collapsing? Anything new on Contrails? JFK, lone killer or conspiracy? Do you have the location of the set they used to film the moon landing?
