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

Clapper lied, Obama spied, Holder let it ride.

Sensenbrenner said all the rights things -- and then it all sank into the Swamp. 

As usual.

 



Now at The Daily Caller 

If there's one thing that 31,065 deadly Islamic terror attacks since 9/11 teach us, it's that there is no way to foster a fact-based discussion of Islam in the halls of Western power.

That's right -- I said fact-based discussion of Islam. After 15-plus years since our Twin Towers burned and collapsed, I am still not talking about "Islamofascism," "Islamism," "Islamist extremism," or any other figleaf-word made up by blushing Westerners to cover up the embarassingly appalling facts about Islam: its defining laws which can be as revolting as they are repressive; its history of violent conquest and "radical" religious...

Some 12 to 14 million German-speaking civilians, mainly women and children, were forcibly relocated by the Allies following WWII.   

From the e-mailbag, fascinating insights on that point where world and personal history converge from Caroline Beckenhaupt, a longtime reader and dear friend. During WWII, Caroline's father served in the British RAF and flew bombing raids over German cities as a rear gunner (Caroline thinks) until his Lancaster was shot down over Essen. He spent two years as a POW in a German camp. Her email concerns her mother's family.

Dear Diana,



Through your wonderful book American Betrayal,...

Judicial Watch -- not the media, not our elected representatives (any of them) -- has learned that the NSC records believed to be related to "unmasking" political opponents as conducted by Obama NSC director Susan Rice have been sent to the "Obama Presidential Library," and are thus sealed until January 2022.

In other words, the Obama/Rice domestic spying records have been safely stashed away for the duration, beyond the reach of a FOIA lawsuit.

Here is where things get extremely interesting, however.  As JW's Tom Fitton (video below) explained on Fox & Friends, (1) the president, (2) the Congress and (3) the special counsel ALL have the powers to retrieve these records.

So, who calls the ol' Obama Library Bluff? Anyone?

The "elite"-driven suicide of the West in two sentences. 



Multithanks for the big shout-out from the good ol' Soros-funded folks at Right Wing Watch, a Project of People for the American Way. What caught their attention this time was last week's special three-segment-interview with Frank Gaffney on Secure Freedom Radio during which Frank and I drill down on the rotten center of the "Russia" "hacking" story -- the key fact that the FBI never examined the DNC servers or John Podesta's computer devices. That means the entire Russia/DNC/hacking firestorm was ignited on the say-so of a (recently discredited) DNC contractor. That suits the anti-Trump Swamp fine, including...

Now at The Daily Caller

About those Comey hearings.

Not one US senator asked former FBI Director James Comey to account for the sinister fact that the source of the explosive determination that "Russia hacked the DNC" computer system is a DNC contractor, not the FBI.

Not one US Senator asked why Comey's FBI deferred to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's DNC when the DNC refused to permit FBI forensics specialists to examine the DNC computer system; or why the FBI was never able to examine John Podesta's personal devices, either. Not one member of the Senate Intelligence Committe inquired as to why the DNC servers have not, after all of this time, ever been re-examined by the FBI; or whether it is just possible that this same DNC contractor putting forward...

Friend of mine sent me a link this morning to a UK Express interview with Brian Cox, who stars in a new movie about Winston Churchill. The headline was like something right out of American Betrayal: 

Churchill did NOT want D-Day ‘His plan would have ended WW2 6 months EARLIER'   However, when I clicked on the Express link, I got this:



Gone.

Fortunately, the story was cached, so I took a series of screen shots to reconstruct it below. 

Cox discusses Churchill famed "soft underbelly" strategy to press Nazi Germany...

Pvt. Elliot West, 102nd Cavalry Reconnaissance Squadron, Gen. Omar Bradley’s 2nd Army, circa 1944

Today is the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, the 1944 invasion of Normandy, a.k.a. the long-discussed "second front" -- although, as tallied by a letter appearing in the New York Times in 1943, this "second front" should really have counted as the ninth front.

Why we persist in calling Normandy the "second front" is a long story all about what we would today call "Russian influence." It is laid out in American Betrayal, my book closely examining such "Russian influence." The book digs into the historical record to seek a better understanding of what American government officials,...

Some call it reframing; others put a coat of paint on it and call it a new car. Basically, it is the process by which a deception is perpetrated simply by saying thus is so and pointing to the shiny surface as proof.

This is once again happening with the egregious David Horowitz. Several years ago, I had the unexpected misfortune of having to experience the true nature of David Horowitz due to his spearheading a disinformation campaign against me and my 2013 book American Betrayal. This campaign of lies would end up including nearly two dozen pieces by a cabal of writers, the first of which I rebutted, perhaps ironically, at Breitbart News. (Other rebuttals, too,...

Watched a couple of minutes of the "#MarchForTruth"  in New York City, one of a series of "nationwide rallies demanding action on possible Russia collusion," as the organizers put it. It seems to be drawing the kind of people who used to deny "Russia collusion" to the death, even if its name was Alger Hiss.

But some things never change: they're still pushing the rest of the "commie" program -- the glories of state-run health care, the shame of white privilege, the evils of Donald Trump ... who, by pulling out of the Paris Accords, has emerged as the biggest threat to that same communist/Marxist/progressive/globalist/Alinskyite/socialist program since Ronald Reagan. Not that we discuss such things in such terms.  

One of the rally speakers was House of Cards writer Beau Willimon (picture above)....

Fanatical globalists in happier days ...

---

The meaning is clear, even if the terminology is often opaque: To leave the Paris Accord on "climate change" is to turn off a giant spigot of American wealth redistribution, which is to strike a blow at bad old-fashioned international communism -- or, in its 21st century guise, postmodern global governance by fanatical elites. Bully for President Trump for bucking these postmodern slavedrivers of collectivism.

Not that every Paris Accorder speaks in riddles. Take the "world renowned climate economist" Ottmar Edenhofer. Assuming his Wikipedia page is a reasonably accurate CV, Edenhofer's career includes being a professor of the Economics of Climate Change at the Technical University of Berlin;deputy director and chief economist of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research; director of the Mercator Research...
