American Betrayal

FINALLY -- IN AUDIOBOOK!

ALSO 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.

"Diana West wrote a brilliant book called American Betrayal, which I recommend to everybody ... It is a seminal work that will grow in importance." 

-- Newt Gingrich, former House Speaker, Fox News contributor

"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

“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, journalist, founder, Danish Free Press Society

"This is a must read for any serious student of history and anyone working to understand the Marxist counter-state in America."

-- John Guandolo, president, Understanding the Threat, former FBI special agent 

"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

"I have read it, and agree wholeheartedly."

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

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

"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

[American Betrayal is] the most important anti-Communist book of our time ... a book that can open people's eyes to the historical roots of our present malaise ... full of insights, factual corroboration, and psychological nuance. 

-- J.R. Nyquist, author, Origins of the Fourth World War 

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

Last night the management of Fiola, a D.C. restaurant near the Capitol on Pennsylvania Ave., NW,  permitted a screaming anti-Kavanaugh mob to seize control of its space, driving Sen and Mrs. Ted Cruz from their table and out a restaurant side door.

The restaurant might as well hang a sign in the window, Only Antifa-Approved Diners Welcome. (NOTE: Fiola has since released a statement saying that after staff "diffused the situation," Sen and Mrs. Cruz soon returned to the restaurant to resume their "exceptional" meal.)

What I wanted to point out, however, was the similarity between Debbie Ramirez's "Code of Ethics" (discussed here) and the triumphant...

Now at The Epoch Times

Amid The New Yorker's coaxed and uncorroborated smears of Judge Kavanaugh by Yale classmate Debbie Ramirez, hidden clues to Ramirez's ideological identity appear: 

Ramirez is a registered Democrat, but said that her decision to speak out was not politically motivated and, regarding her views, that she “works toward human rights, social justice, and social change.”

... Ramirez said that she hoped her story would support that of Christine Blasey Ford.

First, it is a testament to the tragic state of a Yale education that a graduate would emit such cant to describe her "views"; however, it is also revelatory of an animus so all-consuming that it is almost possible Ramirez doesn't believe herself to be "politically...

A Twitter thread.

The new mantra that we must take Christine Ford and her hazy (drunken?) high school memory of being mauled at a teen house party in early 1980s "seriously" is like something we might have to chant in Mao's re-education camps.

As we now know, Ford came to lawmakers & media in JULY -- ample time to address claims -- but her toxic charges was deployed in 11th hour ambush instead. This is not a "serious" claim. This is political warfare.

Ford offered none of the anchoring details that differentiate a charge from a smear. We are supposed to take "seriously" what amounts to social media graffiti -- no chronology, no place, no time, no memory of how she got there, no contemporaneous witnesses to her distress.

Correction: she offered 1 detail...

Read at Epoch Times

James O'Keefe's new and unfolding Deep State series has already revealed that self-identifying "Communists" are still boring from within the US government to destroy it, all the while enjoying the privilege of a federal job, including good salary and generous benefits paid for by We, the Taxpayers. 

Such covert, tax-payer-funded Communist networks reached critical mass in the Roosevelt administration of the 1930s. As some readers know, the catastrophic "policy perversion" that Communists, pro-Communists, fellow travelers, dupes, and, of course, Kremlin...

On August 30, 2018, as James O'Keefe of Project Veritas was undoubtedly putting finishing touches on his latest undercover series on the the Deep State, he tweeted this image. 

Note the book next to Andrew Breitbart.

Makes sense, but I'm happy to see it for several reasons. First, American Betrayal is a history of the Deep State: the traitors who set it up; how they did it; who enabled and still enable them; the patriots who fought back and tried to drain the Swamp the first time around, especially following World War II; and how, ultimately, the Deep State destroyed these patriots along with our counterintelligence capacity to detect domestic subversion.

Google 2.0

--

The Intercept reports on an American math professor turned senior Google research scientist, Jack Poulson, who has resigned over a Google project to develop a search app for Android use in Communist China. This search app is "designed to remove content that China’s authoritarian government views as sensitive, such as information about political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest." 

Might as well throw in floodlights for the Gulag while they're at it -- oh, wait, we already did that. 

Poulson said no to Google, shining a floodlight of his own on Google's stark moral depravity. His story is here. Five...

I, myself, had one unlikely brush with Bob Woodward. It happened in the early spring of 2013, when, while squiring my Danish friend and then-editor Lars Hedegaard around town on a visit of his to D.C., I found myself sitting across a Washington dinner table from Woodward.

Recently, Lars had miraculously survived an assassination attempt outside his home in a suburb of Copenhagen and was enjoying, if that's the word, an intense burst of interest in his affairs in new quarters. In some cases, I couldn't decide whether the interest was genuine or rubber-necking.

The dinner Lars was invited to was at Michael and Barbara Ledeen's house. I had met Michael before but did not know the other guests, and was simply there as Lars' companion. When the party...

In 2012, Politico, of all outlets, listed six big disputed reports from Bob Woodward.

(1) The potted plant to signal "Deep Throat"

(2) CIA Director William Casey's deathbed scene

(3) Tenet's WMD "slam dunk" quote

(4) Justice Brennan voting against conscience to curry favor

(5) Reagan recovery scene

(6) John Belushi portrayal in "Wired"

Catch up on them here.

What made these examples of disputed Woodward reporting newsworthy was the stunning 2012 revelation in New York Magazine, as Politico put it, that "legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee once expressed `fear in my soul' that Bob Woodward had embellished elements of his reporting in the Watergate scandal."

Leaving readers mouths agape, Politico...
