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

Speaking of Petraeus and Mattis -- "the two general officers who catalyzed the new [COIN] doctrine" --  behold Marine Lt . Col. Matt Baker (commanding officer of 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment), practicing a highly catalyzed form of COIN in Nawa, Afghanistan, in late 2009: 

"When in doubt, I want you to be nice," Baker told his Marines.

And not just nice. Baker, according to the Pentagon news site, DVIDS,...

It is hard to decide whether Ronald Radosh is more incompetent than liar; or more liar than incompetent. What marries the two, however, is a malicious intent to deceive so maybe it hardly matters.











Take the latest Radosh mess, or, to use the term a la mode, his latest installment of "fake news" aimed at Trump senior strategist Stephen K. Bannon. I refer to Radosh's increasingly non-credible story that Bannon came up to him at a "book party" at the Breitbart Embassy, which doubles as Steve Bannon's home, and, unsolicited, revealed himself to Radosh to be a "Leninist."

















Radosh has now pegged this alleged incident to three different dates -- surely evidence of incompetence ... but then there are all the lies.









All of it is increasingly hard to overlook out there, as when Salon executive editor Andrew O'Hehir's incredulity shows through on...

Mr. President, Members of the Court,

 

When I decided to address you here today, by making a final statement in this trial against freedom of speech, many people reacted by telling me it is useless. That you, the court, have already written the sentencing verdict a while ago. That everything indicates that you have already convicted me. And perhaps that is true. Nevertheless, here I am. Because I never give up. And I have a message for you and The Netherlands.

 

For centuries, the Netherlands are a symbol of freedom.

Who one says Netherlands, one says freedom. And that is also true, perhaps especially, for those who have a different opinion than the establishment, the opposition.

And our most important freedom is freedom of speech.

We, Dutch, say whatever is close to our hearts.

And that is precisely what makes our country great.

Freedom of speech is our pride.

And that, precisely that, is at stake here, today.

 

I refuse...

American POWs in the Korean War

In a well-researched story with links to key documents, Morgan Chalfont of the Washington Free Beacon reports that the Pentagon officials hired and paid by US taxpayers to find US servicemen still missing and unaccounted for from the wars of the 20th century, including World War II, told their Russian counterparts in May of this year that there was "no evidence" that US troops missing in the Korean War had been taken to the Soviet Union. 

"No evidence"? The claim is so fantastic,...

I am wondering how to write about The War on Steve Bannon without using the smear terms "white nationalist," "racist," "anti-semite," that are continuously blasting out in heavy streams of toxic waste at Bannon's reputation, career and, please do not forget, soul, as the media-political complex reassembles to overwhelm and neutralize this great and talented patriot as he prepares to take the strategic helm of the Trump White House.

The good news is that support is all around him, as colleagues and strangers, former employees and business partners, political allies and even a council leader in Samaria publish articles, statements and testimonials, denying these heinously baseless charges, exposing them for the tactical dark ops of the Establishment that they are.

The key thing to understand about this War on Steve Bannon is that it is a war on all of us. If he goes down, we go down. If he goes down, Trump's presidency goes down. That's because in this war to demonize Bannon's beliefs and opinions, ours are being demonized, too. Love of country, with borders? "White nationalism." America First trade and foreign policy? "Racism." Run a stupid headline by David Horowitz? "Anti-semitism." If they win, we lose. For keeps.

Here it is, folks, the nitty gritty on the revolution inside the education system that graduates the hysterics we see on the campuses and in the streets who seem mentally unable to grasp the fact that an election took place, and their candidate lost.  

You know what? They are unable to grasp this fact or any other. That's because, as the deeply knowledgeable Robin Eubanks explains to Jeff Nyquist and Allen Dos Santos on "Update Brazil," they have been so taught and by design. Children learn ideas and attitudes at school, not facts, and we are seeing the results in action: Soros fodder.

Please watch.





It's mourning in leftist-crazy Fashionworld -- Hillary Clinton lost -- and black crepe is the new black. The New York Times may well have included a question mark in the headline -- "Is Fashion's Love Affair with Washington Over?" -- but there is zero doubt. So nutsy-cuckoo are these creative critters that they are convinced that the election of Donald Trump, which brings to the White House a handsome family of gorgeous fashion models and fashion brands, is the end of Everything Fashion.

The thought of not having to come up with four years' worth of jewel-tone pant suits, Mao jackets and oven mitts actually has them blubbering into their schmatas. Why? Because the Left lost power.

About that popular vote victory the Left is claiming over Donald Trump.

The latest tallies show that after millions of Americans citizens, fraudsters and non-citizens voted for president, Donald Trump won 59,704,886 votes and Hillary Clinton won 59,938,290.

That's 233,304 more votes in Hillary's column. But is this margin of popular victory the will of legally registered American voters? 

In 2014, three political scientists from Old Dominion University and George Mason University looked back at earlier elections to study whether any of an estimated 19.4 million adult non-citizens in the US voted in the 2008 election. After much surveying, sampling and extrapolating, their best guess -- the "adjusted estimate" -- was to suggest that a whopping 1.2 million...

Voting was light on Election Day morning in the District of Columbia, which means nothing twice because 1) there is now early voting here, and 2) it's the District of Columbia.

Nonetheless, I have done my joyous duty by voting for Trump-Pence (and rejecting Statehood -- all we need in lillold D.C. is several new, completely unnecessary revenue drains and layers of bureacracy/corruption). 

Now, we wait, pray -- and stay vigilant!

The Trump team has sent out a voter hotline number to call if anyone encounters problems when voting or witnesses any disruptions: 844-332-2016

Make America Great Again!

When Trump voters are dismissed as uneducated, the implication obvious. If only these poor, dumb-dumbs had had the benefit of the best education money and position in America can finagle and buy, they would now make the educated choice: Hillary Clinton.

The brainwashed choice is literally more like it -- but that's another story.

Take CNBC's John Harwood, whose credentials as a CNBC's chief Washington correpondent are sterling. His father was a Washington Post reporter. He appeared as an 11-year-old in an ad for Robert Kennedy's presidential campaign, which his father was also covering -- "nothing to do with my participation," Harwood...

Throughout this meteoric election year, it has been a singular pleasure to stop and take stock along the way in several in-depth conversations with podcast host John Gilmore.

Here is our culminating exchange before the momentous Election Day that is nearly upon us.

    

 

The World Series is over (I was rooting for the "politically incorrect" team); the Election of All Elections is still a few days off (I am definitely rooting for the "politically incorrect" candidate!); so there really is no better time than now to take a listen to my brand new ICON lecture, "Where Did `Politically Incorrect' Come From, and What Is It Doing?"

It's the one the Left tried to shut down.

 







We can all breathe a sigh of relief: Bill Kristol has launched his "gut" hunch on the Election outcome and it's Hillary. That's a pretty good augur for Trump's ultimate success.

The polls for Trump are promising, too. And three cheers for Wikileaks and also Judicial Watch for doing the job American journalists won't do. Still, there remain several eternities between us and Election Day, so for any fence-sitters out there, here are a few must-reads.

The first is an interview at Pajamas Media with Kathy Shelton's lawyer and advocate, Candice Jackson, by John L. Work, a retired law enforcement officer, whose many years as a detective included investigating multiple sex crimes. This interview teases out new details about the case that may tels us more about Hillary as a person than any other, spotlighting her callousness and ruthlessness in this trampling of a 12 year old rape...

A word from Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV) leader Geert Wilders on why he is not participating in his continuing persecution by the Dutch state in yet another "hate speech" trial over the vital political question of immigration policy and border control.

"Do you want more of less Moroccans?" Wilders asked in a stump speech -- and so the State puts him in the dock, as if this were not a question mere Dutch voters should ever hear, weigh and vote on, potentially braking the governing parties' mass import of Moroccans and other Muslims into once-Dutch society, where, it is a repetitious matter of record, Moroccans are grossly over-represented in jihad, welfare and crime statistics. 

Meanwhile, it is not as if these same governing politicians do not react, and cholerically so, to these same problems. See what three Labor Party politicians have variously stated: "We also have shit...
