Further Reflections on Diana West’s Critics, Part II (see Part I below)

Commentary for 28 July 2014

The mere use of words is futile if you do not know what they stand for. - Carl Jung, The Undiscovered Self

In the controversy over

American Betrayal I am remiss in one respect. I never wrote a proper review of the book. Instead I wrote two versions of a review, and both were rejected by editors. For this I am grateful because in truth I had not invested the time required to properly do the job. I did not fully appreciate the impact of the campaign against American Betrayal, or how effective that campaign had been. For those who have not read the book, it is about the Communist infiltration of the U.S. Government, and the influencing of U.S. policy during the critical years of World War II and its aftermath. The facts reviewed in the book are not entirely new. What was original was the way in which these facts were presented; that is, in order that we might see the big picture with greater clarity. This is Diana West’s special achievement.

This week's syndicated column

There’s something darkly coincidental in the fact that the latest weapon to be deployed against the survival instinct of both Israel and the United States is an alleged “heartlessness” when it comes to children.

The people of Israel are castigated in news media, social media and the “international community” (read: the scoundrel United Nations, of whose budget U.S. taxpayers pay 22 percent) as lacking in “humanity” itself. Why? Because as the IDF fights to end Gaza’s endless rocket barrages against Israel, many children under the age of 18 number among the civilian dead. This London Telegraph headline is not untypical: “Israel’s offensive in Gaza has ‘killed more children than fighters,’ say human rights groups. Israel has been accused of waging ‘war on the children’ of Gaza …”

No mention in the article, however, of Gaza’s purposeful,...

Jeff Nyquist has posted a new entry to add to his ruminations about ex-Communist conservative critics of American Betrayal and related topics. His latest is a brief but pointed discussion of an anything-but-brief series on American Betrayal and the "controversy" around it which appeared at the American Thinker website on July 4, July 5, and July 6 -- 12,000 words in all by Jeff Lipkes that someone chose to title "Diana and Ron."

You can find the Nyquist discussion and relevant links here.

This week's syndicated column

“Dear Colleagues,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., wrote to his fellow senators, “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic.”

That should grab them. It grabbed me.

Sessions continued, quoting from a National Journal report on a recent White House meeting where President Obama “made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit” in order to prevent millions of illegal aliens from being deported. Obama could spare “between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants (from) deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012.”

Obama, the report continued, “has now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10. Senior officials also tell (The National Journal) Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults.”

This week's syndicated column

Dear Members of Congress,

Here's an assignment for you: Watch the 1939 classic "The Wizard of Oz" and pay particular attention to the part in which Dorothy realizes that in her ruby red slippers, she had the magic power she needed all along.

You do, too. Not in fancy footwear, of course. It's called the power of the purse.

You don't like what's going on where the border used to be before Barack Obama eliminated it? I realize you are probably not equipped to deliver the Constitutional remedy of impeachment, but how about this: When Barack Obama's multi-billion-dollar "supplemental" budget request for the "unaccompanied children" crisis comes knocking on the door of the Appropriations Committee, put your hands in your pockets and whistle. You do not have to fund it. And why would you? As Texas Gov. Perry points out in USA Today, "out of $3.7 billion...

... Mark Tapson reviewed American Betrayal at Frontpage Magazine, Radosh called Horowitz, and Horowitz purged the review from the Frontpage website, and, bonus, withdrew his free-speech-championing Freedom Center's co-sponsorship of a speech I was to give shortly in Los Angeles for the group Children of Holocaust Survivors. (The speech is here.)

The incorrect review was gone, or so they thought.

But Ruth King, the early bird at Ruthfully Yours, had already posted it, unknowingly saving it for posterity.

I mention this to mark the beginning of the Rado-Horo eruptions against American Betrayal. Like an active volcano, the two men still spew, as evidenced by the statements awkwardly appended to a recently attempted exegesis of their beef with my book. It's all bitter ash and smoke at this point, but it does continue to draw the curious eye.  Oh, and that's "cockamamie"...

At least they didn't have to see this ...

This week's syndicated column

There is one thing we can predict about the tens of thousands of "minor aliens" crashing our southern border. If permitted to stay in this country and gain citizenship, at least 8 in 10 of them will grow up to be Big Government Democrats. They will likely believe that the U.S. government isn't big enough, and doesn't offer enough tax-payer-funded services.

How do I know this? In late 2011, Pew Research's Hispanic Center surveyed a "randomly selected, nationally representative sample" of 1,220 Hispanic adults. With one survey question, Pew quantified the basis of the Democratic Party's drive to extend amnesty to the "11 million," mainly Hispanic, illegal aliens already in this country, or now arriving by the hundreds every day. (I put "11 million" in quotation marks because that projected figure is a decade...

"What Would the Founders Think" has reviewed my pal John L. Work's A Summons to Perdition, calling it "both entertaining and informative."

Martin writes:

A Summons To Perdition is not a happy book.  It is, as its subtitle states, a “novel of suspense.” John Work did a lot of research in writing this book and one can only hope that the dire picture he paints about the degree to which radical Islam has infiltrated American society and government is merely Work’s construct for the purposes of making a good story.  If not, Work had best watch out for himself.

Um, what are "Brown Shirt laws"?

The good people of Murrieta, CA -- like the good people of Lawrenceville, VA, Sweden, NY, and Escondido, CA -- have said no to Washington's plan to dump an dependent alien bloc into their community. How lone they be able to resist?

News round-up. All sinister.
