RE: Seizure of personal books at Calgary YYC Airport on 2019/04/24

I was detained for three hours on the evening of April 24, while three border guards searched my possessions. They were allegedly looking for “hate propaganda”. Five books were taken from my possession. I consider this to be theft of personal property. The search and seizure was nothing short of personal harassment and an attempt at intimidation. I did not consent, and I do not consent. Consider the following:

• These books are available and/or for sale and are NOT banned.
• I did not write the books.
• My books were not in commercial quantities, and I was not selling them. I was carrying single books (one each) for my personal consumption.
• It is nobody’s business except mine what books I choose to read. Or do we now have thought laws?
• Is there a list of forbidden books in Canada? If so, are these books on this list? Where is this list? Why could the three border guards harassing me for three hours not find my books on any such “list”?
• By their actions in seizing these books, the border guards demonstrated an utter contempt for our most basic human right: the freedom to think.

The five books seized are the following:

Bungled: “Denying the Holocaust” by Germar Rudolf
The Commission by Richard Barrett
The Great Impersonation – The Mask of Edom by Pastor Eli James
Mystery Babylon: New World Unveiled Vol 1 by Eli James & Clay Douglas
Government by Deception by Jan Lamprecht

The 3 guards were 12452: Masi; 30482: Nigh; and 35394: Lahaie

I insist that you send me back my books immediately, at your expense. I also insist on receiving a copy of your entire report in this file.

Detained for “Wrong-Think”: Canadian Border Guards Seize Books from Monika Schaefer

Upon returning from the United States of America on 24 April 2019, I was detained by the Canadian Border Guards [CBSA] in the Calgary Airport for three hours. 

Three Border Guards spent those hours perusing through my possessions, especially the books that I was carrying in my small suitcase. They were looking for “hate propaganda“. 


The five books which they seized from me for further inspection are the following:

  • Government by Deception  by Jan Lamprecht
  • Mystery Babylon: New World Unveiled Vol 1  by Eli James & Clay Douglas
  • The Great Inpersonation – The Mask of Edom  by Pastor Eli James
  • The Commission  by Richard Barrett
  • Bungled: “Denying the Holocaust”  by Germar Rudolf

Jan Lamprecht’s book was published in 2002 and has never had any complaints against it nor any bans on sales, whether in South Africa or America or any other place where it has been sold. Government by Deception is a critique of the black South African government, yet no black person, nor anybody else, has ever complained to the author. It was sold in several branches of the Exclusive Books chain in S. Africa, as well as through the online book distributor Amazon for a number of years. It was not taken down by any distributors.

Conversation with John Friend of The Realist Report

Once again I had the honour of speaking with the courageous truth-teller John Friend of the Realist Report. We spoke on live Eurofolk Radio on March 31st, 2019, however that interview was not archived due to technical difficulties. We then spoke again on April 3rd, and that interview is accessible here.

We discussed the weaponized historical narratives and psychologically exploitative propaganda, the status of my brother Alfred who is currently incarcerated in Germany due to his political and historical views, and much more!

John and I also did a shout out for Patrick Little, pictured below. Patrick and I had the pleasure of again joining Andrew Carrington Hitchcock in this show.

Screen Shot 2019-04-08 at 5.39.57 PM

We discussed: Monika’s recent speaking tour in Canada; how Patrick is running for President in 2020 and will be in Washington D.C. in March to protest the AIPAC Conference; the Anti-Semitism resolution that recently passed unanimously in the House Of Representatives; how the International Definition Of Anti-Semitism prohibits accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing; how the Leo Frank murder and rape of 13 year old Mary Phagan contributed to the creation of the ADL; how at this point it is basically illegal to criticize Jews, as many people that do have had their income streams attacked; Monika’s recent letter from Alfred; the story of Audi’s Dr. Thomas Dettmann who is in prison with Alfred, and how his story has literally been scrubbed from the internet; and many other topics.

Letter from Alfred to Monika — Crossing the Atlantic

Dear Readers,

The letter posted here is in German, the language Alfred used in most of his early letters to me from his prison cell to my prison cell. We shared a similar address for nearly four months, the duration of our “speech-crime” trial. In this letter he describes one of his epic sailing trips, the first Atlantic crossing that he made on the Mistral sailboat.~~~~ Monika.


[NOTE: There is an English translation below]

Brief #6

Dear Möne,

nun gehe ich ins Deutsche über, damit unsere Mit-Leser sich nicht unnötig schwer tun. Wir müssen Rücksicht auf die Mit-Leser nehmen um ihre lädierten Nerven zu schonen.

Hoffentlich nerve ich dich nicht, Monika mit schon wieder einem Brief, ich hatte dir heute schon Brief #5 geschickt und jetzt höre ich Bayerische Volksmusik in meinem Zimmer mit dem herrlichen Gitterblick und habe darüber gegrübelt, daß gewisse Zusammenhänge womöglich fehlen, in gewissen Ereignissen, die ich in Brief #5 beschrieben habe, also werde ich hier nachbessern um mögliche Lücken zu füllen und es zu vervollständigen.

Also, die Lücke die zu füllen ist: Was hat eine Atlantic-Überquerung zu tun mit einem Aufenthalt im Hotel Gitterblick? Das eine ist doch ein Traum und das andere ist doch ein Alpdruck oder Alptraum.

Antwort: Nein, eben nicht. Beide sind beides, es kommt nur darauf an ob man es überlebt und was man daraus macht.

Was ist besser?

1) Mit einem alten 2-Master Holz-Segelboot über den Atlantic segeln, was noch keiner der Mitsegler schon gemacht hat, und überall kommen die Stürme – tue es nicht, diese Leute sind lebensmüde, verrückt und das Schiff ist gar nicht dafür geeignet. Das Ding geht unter.

2) Einen Aufenthalt mit Mördern und Dieben und Kinderschändern (die sind getrennt, für ihre eigene Sicherheit) in einem großen Hotel auf einer Insel von wo es kein Entkommen gibt?

Wie ich vorher sagte, beide können so oder so sein. Es kommt darauf an was man draus macht.

Speaking Tour Teaser Video

Computer technician is not my forté, but I finally succeeded in uploading (or is it called downloading?) a short video onto youtube, on my very own channel. Just creating the youtube channel had a surprising element to it, as I discovered that I already had a channel, since 2013! There was nothing on it, but there were already 98 subscribers. How did that happen? It certainly put a smile on my face. Perhaps it was the webmaster whom I formerly employed to create my now-defunct musician website who had set that up. Well I’ll be darned. Life is full of surprises.

Screen Shot 2019-03-07 at 12.32.49 PMHere is the video, just 9 minutes long. It consists of excerpts of the Toronto Talk on January 20, 2019, part of a cross-Canada speaking tour in which I discussed our recent speech-crime trial and my 10 month incarceration in Germany. The video was created by Karl Heissler of Toronto, filmed with his cell phone.

I do not post every day, sometimes just once every week or two, and I tend not to do much promotion – that is also not my forté.

Speaking Tour Canada

13 Talks in 11 Cities: Unbowed and Proud

Screen Shot 2019-03-04 at 5.37.44 PM

The Canadian Association for Free Expression (CAFE) hosted me on a Canadian speaking tour, beginning on January 19th, 2019. Unbowed and Proud was my motto. I spoke about My Trial, My “Crime” & 10 Months in a German Jail. The first 10 talks took place within a time span of 9 days, all the way from Ottawa, Ontario to Victoria, British Columbia. The remaining 3 talks in B.C. and Alberta took place February 8, 9, and 10. We had some great views while flying.

I was happy and grateful that the Hamilton event was recorded, as well as a Vancouver event. Here is the link to the Hamilton talk.

This is a recording of one of the three Vancouver events, a slightly less favourable camera angle, nonetheless the talk is documented. Parts of this talk are similar to Hamilton, however because I was speaking without a script, there are some different stories. Naturally the question and answer session during the latter half is different as well, covering some important subjects.



Criminalizing the Question

Nothing illustrates more clearly the absurdity of the speech-crime laws in Germany than the fact that I was criminalized for my answers in this short video in which I responded to the question:


Why do you support open debate on the holocaust?


In German there is an expression “wenn schon, denn schon”. Indeed, if they are going to put someone on trial for peaceful expression of their views, they may as well go all out and really do a thorough job of it. Seeing as how I was on trial anyway for breaking their “speech laws“, I was very glad to see that this video was part of “the crime“. 

Replace the word “holocaust” with any other subject, and ask yourself if it makes sense to criminalize supporting debate or discussion. Most thinking people would exclaim:

Well of course we should be able to debate and discuss ALL topics!

The more absurd the charges, the more obvious it becomes that “they” are hiding something big.

Truth does not fear investigation.

Video here . Less than 4 minutes.

Ask questions. More importantly, if what you are instructed to believe makes no sense, ask more questions, and do a little research. 

Catalogue of Interviews in Jan-Feb of 2019

Shed your fear! This is a thread that weaves its way through this talk with Dennis Fetcho on Inside the Eye Live on January 5th, 2019. We talk about the arrest, the food in jail, and take some questions. We also talk about Alfred as messenger and the different styles we have but with absolutely the same goal of exposing the lies and deceptions of the Talmudists.

NS Viking put together a beautiful 8 minute video for Alfred’s birthday in January. This video has excerpts of Alfred in an earlier interview, as well as of myself talking about the emotional side of things, taken out of this 44 minute conversation I had with Brian Ruhe and Diane Chase, “One Year Later the Schaefer Siblings”.

The intrepid Andrew Carrington Hitchcock honoured me once again, inviting me back on his show twice in short order. During the first show  [] we talked about the arrest and early days in prison, and we also talked about mail in jail, and read one of Alfred’s letters.

In the second show [] we were joined by Patrick Little, former U.S. Presidential candidate, running again in 2020, on a refreshingly truthful platform, naming the Jews.

Patrick Little invited me to introduce myself and my story during the first half of this show in which he was interviewed by Dr. Patrick Slattery on the Republic Broadcast Network. This was followed by the full-length show 1-hour long, on February 2nd with Farren Shoaf on the Alternative Media. We spoke about Sylvia Stolz’ case, Alfred’s and my trial, how a speech-crime trial works in Germany, betrayal by relatives, conversations in jail, and many more topics.

The lovely Erica at The Harsh Reality youtube channel did a live-stream show with me on February 5th. We went into quite a lot of detail of my past year, the prison experience and trial.

What a pleasure it was for me to be interviewed two weeks in a row each time the full two hours on Blood River Radio with Eddie “the Bombardier” Miller. The first was on the 74th anniversary of the horrific bombing of Dresden in Germany, and so we began our conversation with the telling of that story. We covered many topics in those four hours in total, culminating with the House of Representatives resolution on February 13th, 2019 to outlaw “anti-semitism”. Utter Bolshevism.

That is a wrap for now with cataloguing the on-line talk shows. I did a 13 talk – 11 city Speaking Tour across Canada recently, more on that in another post.

Fiddle Retreat and an Update on Busking

Sunday at noon I received a phone call prompting me to make a spontaneous trip to attend the final evening of the Alberta Society of Fiddlers annual winter camp. I was once-upon-a-time on the board of directors of the ASF, and I used to teach at that camp, after some years of attending as a student-participant. However, my fateful “Sorry Mom…” video changed all that, as they turfed me out rather unceremoniously (see article).  Even though I never discussed politics at those fiddle camps, my presence as a fiddle instructor and as a regional director was not desired anymore. The phone call was from one of my guardian angels, a regular camp participant and she was calling me from there.

My initial response was to decline, it was so unexpected and far away (three-and-a-half hour drive one-way). Well after a short walk outside to think on it, I ran back home and packed my fiddle and my bag and jumped in the car. It was very important for me to show my face there, happy, unbowed and proud, and I am indeed so glad I went. I immediately received some very warm and genuine hugs. There were some other mixed reactions as well, but none were hostile. Discomfort from a few yes perhaps, maybe even bewilderment or trepidation, but mostly relief to see me back, safe and sound.

There was the student concert (5 of my former private students were there, in addition to the camp regulars and my former camp students), followed by the dance (we can fiddle or dance, or switch from one to the other to suit our mood). So much fun! My drive home was punctuated with two frighteningly close calls with large wildlife on the road, moose and elk, but my guardian angels were with me all the way.
