American Betrayal

NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK!

"This explosive book is a long-needed answer to court histories that continue to obscure key facts about our backstage war with Moscow. Must-reading for serious students of security issues and Cold War deceptions, both foreign and domestic."

-- M. Stanton Evans, author of Stalin's Secret Agents and Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies

"It is not simply a good book about history. It is one of those books which makes history. ... "

-- Vladimir Bukovsky, author of To Build a Castle and co-founder of the Soviet dissident movement, and Pavel Stroilov, author of Behind the Desert Storm.

"I have read it, and agree wholeheartedly."

-- Angelo Codevilla, Professor Emeritus of International Relations at Boston Unversity, and fellow of the Claremont Institute. 

"A brilliantly researched and argued book."

-- Edward Jay Epstein, author of Deception: The Invisible War between the KGB and the CIA, The Annals 0f Unsolved Crime 

"American Betrayal is absolutely required reading. Essential. You're sleepwalking without it."

-- Chris Farrell, director of investigations research, Judicial Watch

"As Diana West writes in her remarkable book, American Betrayal, we have `new totalitarians who look to Mecca instead of Moscow.' "

-- Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives 

"I've been, quite frankly, mesmerized by Diana West and her new book American Betrayal. If you get it (a) you won't put it down, and (b) you'll be flipping back to the notes section because every paragraph your hair's going to be on fire."  

-- Stephen K. Bannon, Breitbart News Radio

"Every once in a while, something happens that turns a whole structure of preconceived ideas upside down, shattering tales and narratives long taken for granted, destroying prejudice, clearing space for new understanding to grow. Diana West's latest book, American Betrayal, is such an event."

 -- Henrik Raeder Clausen, Europe News

No book has ever frightened me as much as American Betrayal. ... [West] patiently builds a story outlining a network of subversion so bizarrely immense that to write it down will seem too fantastic to anyone without the book’s detailed breadth and depth. It all adds up to a story so disturbing that it has changed my attitude to almost everything I think about how the world actually is. ... By the time you put the book down, you have a very different view of America’s war aims and strategies. The core question is, did the USA follow a strategy that served its own best interests, or Stalin’s? And it’s not that it was Stalin’s that is so compelling, since you knew that had to be the answer, but the evidence in detail that West provides that makes this a book you cannot ignore. 

-- Steven Kates, RMIT (Australia) Associate Professor of Economics, Quadrant

Her task is ambitious; her sweep of crucial but too-little-known facts of history is impressive; and her arguments are eloquent and witty. ... American Betrayal is one of those books that will change the way many of us see the world.

-- Susan Freis Falknor, Blue Ridge Forum

“What Diana West has done is to dynamite her way through several miles of bedrock. On the other side of the tunnel there is a vista of a new past. Of course folks are baffled. Few people have the capacity to take this in. Her book is among the most well documented I have ever read. It is written in an unusual style viewed from the perspective of the historian—but it probably couldn’t have been done any other way.”

-- Lars Hedegaard, historian, editor, Dispatch International

"Diana West's new book rewrites WWII and Cold War history not by disclosing secrets, but by illuminating facts that have been hidden in plain sight for decades. Furthermore, she integrates intelligence and political history in ways never done before."

-- Jeffrey Norwitz, former professor of counterterrorism, Naval War College

Although I know [Christopher] Andrew well, and have met [Oleg] Gordievsky twice, I now doubt their characterization of Hopkins -- also embraced by Radosh and the scholarly community. I now support West's conclusions after rereading KGB: The Inside Story account 23 years later [relevant passages cited in American Betrayal]. It does not ring true that Hopkins was an innocent dupe dedicated solely to defeating the Nazis. Hopkins comes over in history as crafty, secretive and no one's fool, hardly the personality traits of a naïve fellow traveler. And his fingerprints are on the large majority of pro-Soviet policies implemented by the Roosevelt administration. West deserves respect for cutting through the dross that obscures the evidence about Hopkins, and for screaming from the rooftops that the U.S. was the victim of a successful Soviet intelligence operation.

-- Bernie Reeves, founder of The Raleigh Spy Conference, American Thinker

Diana West’s American Betrayal — a remarkable, novel-like work of sorely needed historical re-analysis — is punctuated by the Cassandra-like quality of “multi-temporal” awareness. ... But West, although passionate and direct, is able to convey her profoundly disturbing, multi-temporal narrative with cool brilliance, conjoining meticulous research, innovative assessment, evocative prose, and wit.

-- Andrew G. Bostom, PJ Media

Do not be dissuaded by the controversy that has erupted around this book which, if you insist on complete accuracy, would be characterized as a disinformation campaign.

-- Jed Babbin, The American Spectator

The most important anti-Communist book of our time. ... Mrs. West is one of the most important writers on the strategic and moral consequences of Communist penetration of the U.S. Government.

-- J.R. Nyquist, contributor, And Reality Be Damned ... What Media Didn't Tell You about the End of the Cold War and the Fall of Communism in Europe

The polemics against your Betrayal have a familiar smell: The masters of the guild get angry when someone less worthy than they are ventures into the orchard in which only they are privileged to harvest. The harvest the outsider brought in, they ritually burn.

-- Hans Jansen, former professor of Islamic Thought, University of Utrecht 

West's lesson to Americans: Reality can't be redacted, buried, fabricated, falsified, or omitted. Her book is eloquent proof of it.

-- Edward Cline, Family Security Matters

In American Betrayal, Ms. West's well-established reputation for attacking "sacred cows" remains intact. The resulting beneficiaries are the readers, especially those who can deal with the truth.

-- Wes Vernon, Renew America

After reading American Betrayal and much of the vituperation generated by neoconservative "consensus" historians, I conclude that we cannot ignore what West has demonstrated through evidence and cogent argument.

-- John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons

Enlightening. I give American Betrayal five stars only because it is not possible to give it six.

-- John Dietrich, formerly of the Defense Intelligence Agency and author of The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Postwar Policy.

If you're looking for something to read, this is the most dazzling, mind-warping book I have read in a long time. It has been criticized by the folks at Front Page, but they don't quite get what Ms. West has set out to do and accomplished. I have a whole library of books on communism, but -- "Witness" excepted -- this may be the best.

-- Jack Cashill, author of Deconstructing Obama: The Lives, Loves and Letters of America's First Postmodern President and First Strike: TWA Flight 800 and the Attack on America

Even as former Ambassador Thomas Pickering has been deservedly thrashed in the media for "taking money from Boeing while vocally supporting the Iran nuclear deal" -- the same Boeing that recently inked a $25 billion passenger jet deal with Tehran -- his old striped pants have barely been creased. The Pickering facade of Grand Old Diplomat remains in place, if now a little crooked.

But there is so much more to Pickering than his many diplomatic posts, however lofty they may seem to reporters including Betsy Woodruff at the Daily Beast, who broke the Boeing-Pickering-Iran story of hot and greasy...

Through the good offices of Gates of Vienna, below is a translation from the Russian of Vladimir Bukovsky's recent column on Brexit, written for the Ukrainian publication Gordon. The translation is by by D@rLin|{, and I am very grateful to have it.

PUBLICATIONS  “Gordon’s exclusive”

Bukovsky: As soon as Ukraine got rid of USSR’s yoke, it started asking to join the EU. This is incredibly dumb!

The EU – a huge and insanely expensive bureaucracy, like the Soviet Union was. Great Britain finally understood that and voted to leave the EU, which is doomed to fail. So thinks the author and journalist Vladimir Bukovsky, who has lived in England for the past 40 years. In his “Gordon” column, the former Soviet dissident explains why everyone, except Russia, will benefit...

Vladimir Bukovsky's illuminating arguments against the "soft" totalitarianism of the European Union are well known. (In fact, I discuss them in American Betrayal.) If you have not heard him point out the many startling similarities between the EU and the Soviet Union, do watch this short video.

"There is an alternative to being ruled by those two dozen self-appointed officials in Brussels," as he has long said. "It is called independence."

On asking Bukovsky for a comment on the Brexit vote for British independence, the first forceful strike ever against the post-WWII, global, New World Order, he passed along the following:

 



 On deck: Nexit and Frexit.

What to say? Good news takes some getting used to.

How about: Take that, globalists!

Or: Nationalists of the one-world-goverment, disunite!

Next up, Frexit, Nexit -- and US out of UN.

Sky's the limit.



Ed Cline (above), a good friend and also supporter of American Betrayal, is the patriot on the ISIS kill list who needs help.

The story below conveys the essential details of this real-life trauma in the actual life of an American citizen, circa 2016, but the effect is surreal, dystopic. It is happening here, and we are discovering that we are now and perhaps for all time powerless to stop it. 

Surely, though, we can help our fearless compatriot in his time of need.

From Western Rifle Shooters Association blog by Matt Bracken:

Ed Cline is an Air Force veteran, a prolific author [Edward Cline – Wikipedia], essayist and counter-jihadist...

This is the back page of Friday's Weekend Arts II section, a full-page advertisement for an upcoming auction at Bonhams in London to include this Warhol silkscreen of Mao, the Communist monster responsible for the deaths of 80 to 100 million -- or more -- human beings. His portrait is expected to sell for between $820,000 and $1.1 million. 

What sort of society looks on this face, prizes it, showcases it, turns it into a sign of success and sophistication?

It is the same society that glows and puffs up with sacrosanct pride over the two democratic leaders, Churchill and FDR, sitting alongside the mass murderer "Uncle Joe" Stalin, estimated to have killed 60 million human beings, revealed to have been at this same moment of solidarity successfully deploying a Communist intelligence army of occupation against his two "allies," and successfully surbverting their nations...

In October 2015 I gave this talk at the Social Contract Workshop outside Washington, DC, (and forgot to post it).

It examines the ideology behind the immigration crisis, reframed as a war on law and nation waged by governing elites in both Europe and the US seeking to repopulate our countries. How did this all come about? How, for example, did we get from the 1920s, when the question, "How might immigration benefit the American people?" was on Congress's mind, to today, when Congress drives masses of migrants/refugees into our cities, towns and communities?

  







In essence, my 2007 book, The Death of the Grown-Up: How America's Arrested Development Is Bringing Down Western Civilization, was an extended rumination on the cultural factors that made Americans unable to talk about, study, teach, debate, let alone face and ward off Islam like "grown-ups" -- honestly, logically, fearlessly. It is a cultural history of how Americans and other Western peoples evolved into the perfect dhimmi. 

Today, the taboo against telling the truth about our Islamic crisis, just like the Islamic crisis itself, is far worse because it has been institutionalized, deeply rooted, selected for, and otherwise set in the postmodern equivalent of stone.

Those familiar with the "long war" on American Betrayal will know why the publication of a letter I have written to the editor of a publication that has printed one of more than a score of lyin' attack pieces gets an exclamation point in the headline: So many journals have refused to publish my responses at all.

So, first, a cheer for American Communist History, Volume 14, Issue 3, which yesterday (finally) published the letter below.
