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

Note to readers: This essay originally ran on January 17, 2017, but in light of new context in cascading sex scandals there may be reason to take another look at the whole story. Also, I will add a warning about obscene photos below.

Behold the Washington Post Style section of January 3, 2017.

All but the trimmings of Page One and Two belong to a woman named Amanda Kleinman, who, we are told, is the leading victim of the headline's "Troll Patrol" -- online harassment resulting from that "viral fake news conspiracy theory" known as "Pizzagate." 

What is "Pizzagate?" Whatever it is, it is either not on the media menu (a la Breitbart);...

On November 14, 2017, a red-hot Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) scorched Attorney General Jeff Sessions with a series of questions arising from this Justice Department's failure to restore the lost principle of one law for all citizens.

To date, all public signs point to a developing crisis that no one who pulled the lever for Trump in 2016 ever imagined: The Trump Justice Department under AG Sessions appears to be placing the Clinton machine, the Obama administration, and the "Intelligence Community" beyond accountability, despite  masses of evidence of the crudest corruption and lawlessness. Resurgent congressional pressure along with some shrewd reporting are making the need to investigate grotesquely obvious -- except to AG Sessions. And that is the rub. If Hillary Clinton had been elected last November, doubtless her attorney general would have long ago ensured that all of this same evidence disappeared. Today, Donald Trump's attorney general seems to be trying to do much the...

I was tremendously impressed by the news broken by The Intercept, confirmed by NBC, and run by many outlets (but not Breitbart), that President Trump had the good sense, awareness and moxie to ask CIA Director Mike Pompeo to meet with former NSA official William Binney to discuss a report by Binney and a group of former intelligence professionals that directly challenges the whole "Russian hack" story. Bottom line: it was a "leak" from the inside, not a "hack" from the outside.

Of course, such analysis blows up the political narrative we are supposed to accept by rote: "The Russians" cyber-invaded the DNC and John Podesta's email account to help Donald Trump win the election; thus, the narrative goes, Trump's election was "delegitimized."

Thirteen years after the Islamic ritual murder of Theo van Gogh on the streets of Amsterdam, few honor Theo van Gogh because few speak the truth about Islam.

The lies multiply and grow, proclaimed and enshrined by dishonorable minions of deceit.    

Can a civilization recover when all of its institutions are corrupt? 





It's really not Britisher Douglas Murray's fault. He just happened to blunder onto the pages of the wrong American magazine, National Review, to ponder the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. In an essay titled, "The Russian Revolution, 100 Years On: Its Enduring Allure and Menace," Murray asks himself why it is, 100 million deaths later, that Communism is not held in the same disrepute as Nazism. Noticing whitewash all around, he writes: "While everybody knows the stories of the good anti-Nazis from more than seven decades ago, the heroes of anti-Communism are becoming forgotten."

Too true -- but no small thanks to the biases enforced by National Review, which,...

April 2016 was a busy month for the Bigfoot Democrat law firm Perkins Coie, the DNC and, of course, Hillary Clinton.

According to the Washington Post, it was in April 2016 that Marc Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie, retained GPS Fusion, sponsor of the "dodgy dossier," on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. 

Finally, the Democrat mystery clients unmasked!

It was also in "late April" 2016 that the DNC detected "unusual network activity" on its servers, as it would later claim to the Washington Post.

What did the DNC do? Call the FBI? Nope. It called Perkins...

GRASSLEY: What are you doing to find out how the Russian takeover of the American uranium was allowed to occur despite criminal conduct by the Russian company that the Obama administration approved to make the purchase?

SESSIONS: Mr Chairman, we will hear your concern, the Department of Justice will take such actions as is appropriate I know, and I would offer that some people have gone to jail in that transaction already, but the article talks about other issues. So without confirming or denying the existence of any particular investigation I would say I hear your concerns and they will be reviewed. 

2.

GRASSLEY: I think I know why you're probably reluctant to go into some detail on that, but I would like to remind you that Deputy Attorney Rosenstein directly supervised the criminal case when he was US Attorney in Maryland.  I don't think it would be proper for him to supervise a review of his own conduct, do you?

SESSIONS: It would be his decision. He's a man of...

Maj. George Racey Jordan, Lend-Lease expediter and liaison with the Russians during World War II.

When American Betrayal came out in 2013, I used my syndicated column to showcase several of the book's heroes, "the truth-tellers," those precious and precious few men and women who stood up and spoke out against the corruption and communist peril of the Washington of their day. They are largely lost to us now, buried in decades of nostalgia and disinformation, Hollywood and "court history," along with the treacherous fact that the FDR administration of the 1930s and 1940s was widely and deeply infiltrated by covert agents and assets of the Soviet Union. This infiltration reached a point,...

Rose McGowan on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1998

1. I'll get interested in the Harvey Weinstein scandal when the powerful pedophiles of Hollywood who defile and destroy children are also named and shamed, triggering, a la Weinstein, snap criminal investigations by the Trump DOJ and Scotland Yard both. Meanwhile, how about opening a snap criminal investigation into multiple allegations of rape and sexual harassment against Bill Clinton? Not happening? What about those numerous Obama era crimes of state, from Fast & Furious to the pay-to-play Clinton Foundation/Clinton State Department? Not happening either? Why Weinstein? There is something weird about these massive currents suddenly driving the Weinstein case to engulf  practically all other news. 

2. Child actors are pure victims, always, and all too often of their own parent-pimps as much as the pedophile Hollywood power brokers.

Below is most of a back-and-forth on September 30.between Jeanine Pirro and former House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz. It is shocking to read in black-and-white. 

Jason Chaffetz: I can tell you that while I was in Congress and the chairman of the Oversight Committee  I did go over and visit with Attorney General Sessions, and it was one of the most frustrating discussions I had, because whether it was the IRS, Fast and Furious, the email scandal that we went through, I did not see the Attorney General willing to just let Lady Justice administer justice, and follow through ... 

Jeanine Pirro: ... You spoke with Sessions on IRS, Fast & Furious. Did he give you a reason? Did he say he's presenting anything to a Grand Jury?

Chaffetz: No. No, basically, he let me know he wasn't going to present anything on the major cases.

Pirro: ......

"People, people, people. Open your eyes to what is creeping in here from Islamic countries."

Via Vlad Tepes.

It's the end of the month, so it's time to take stock with Audrey Russo on REELtalk. In this segment, we hit the deep state & the Trump administration's failure to dismantle it (drain the swamp), the NFL distraction, "Russian influence" & the Stasi state, Jeff Sessions, the 45,000 "refugees," communist influence, and more.

     



Marx's saying "History repeats itself, first as tragedy and then as farce" is one of those ingrained bits of non-wisdom we have to put up with, watching history repeat and repeat as mounting tragedies. But what about Communist apologetics? How do they repeat themselves?

Once upon a time, the free press was subverted by communists, fellow travellers, sympathizers and endless quanities of dupes. Thus, Americans, especially including New York Times readers, were told Stalin's state-ordered famine was neither state-ordered nor did it lead to starvation, Mao was an agrarian, Castro a democrat, and other party lines to be found also in the Daily Worker and Pravda.

As I look at at tweet above, which pairs two genuine, recent op-eds from the NYT's "Red Century" series, maybe the saying should be: Farce repeats itself, over and over again in the New York Times -- a tragedy for our understanding of history and harbinger of worse to come.

On September 15, I participated in a panel on "Exposing the Deep State," hosted by Judicial Watch. Former Trump White House official Sebastian Gorka, the Washington Examiner's Todd Shepherd, JW's James Peterson, and I all delivered approximately 7-minute statements after which JW's lead investigator, Chris Farrell, moderated a discussion. My written statement is here.

Not sure how much "Deep State" we were able to expose in one hour, although one thing that opened up was a bright shaft of daylight between my own and Sebastian Gorka's approaches to the whole concept. To wit, Sebastian began his discussion seemingly negating the effort, "Exposing the...

Below is my prepared text for the Judicial Watch panel, "Exposing the Deep State," September 15, 2017, which I participated in along with, from left to right, Todd Shepherd of the Washington Examiner, former White House official Sebastian Gorka, moderator and Judicial Watch chief investigator Chris Farrell, and Judicial Watch attorney James Peterson. 

This text is pretty close to the statement as delivered (and pretty close to the allotted seven minutes) and may be watched here.

I find the "Deep State" a little hard to discuss because the term itself is amorphous. 

When I think of "Deep State" I think of unconstitutional powers exercised by numerous illegitimate branchlets of government way outside the “balance of powers.”

Gates of Vienna has republished Fjordman's long and flowing answer to a series of questions posed by The Apricity as an "interview." I would call it an exceptional memoir of the counter-jihad by a superlative European commentator.

President Trump and United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres 

UPDATE: Listen to Frank Gaffney and me discuss the Trump UN speech here, including why it is that "America First" and "American Exceptionalism" are completely separate concepts.

If I had to pick a title, I might call President Trump's 2017 UN address, "Something for Everyone."

For example, Trump supporters heard the words "America first" and "sovereignty" and glowed. Trump haters heard the word "sovereignty" and "American interests above all else" and ignited. So consumed were many by their own respective basking and bonfires, they failed to realize that no matter how many times Trump dropped the word "sovereignty," it was sometimes in sentences like this: "We must reject threats to...

Harry Truman in the Washington Post on December 22, 1963

--

Yesterday, I participated in an interesting panel discussion about "Exposing the Deep State." It was hosted by Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch and you can watch it here.

Needless to say, one hour is not enough to expose the "Deep State" -- particularly doing so as an observer, no matter how interested, on the outside looking in. Without whistleblowers (defectors?) galore, us civilians will always be left groping.

We can and should, however, round up the clues to its beginnings, which are surely to be found in the exponential expansion of the federal government under FDR. In his four terms, FDR and then Truman, would preside over the massive expansion of a federal workforce that included hundreds if not thousands of Soviet agents, Communists and their supporters, working all over the government, from the White House to the KGB-honeycombed wartime agencies that would soon be reconstituted as the CIA. Some were identified and bounced. According to reliable defector testimony, however, only one ring out of four was unmasked. And there may well have been more than that.

MEMRI has posted one mighty revealing clip, headlined: "Russian Ambassador in Lebanon Reminisces about the Days of the U.S.S.R.: We Cared about Human Rights More Than in Other Countries."

Right. To call this a "bald-faced lie" is to mince words. But that's not all we can extract from this display. 

The exchange opens as the Russian ambassador to Lebanon, Alexander Zasypkin, is discoursing in Arabic on "various  kinds of socialism," and the "different experiences" of "different socialist countries." Then, seamlessly, he, the Russian ambassador, introduces the subject of human rights.

Russian amb: Take, for example, the issue of human rights. In the USSR, we cared for human rights more than in many other countries.

NB: I originally posted this in 2015. It still goes.

As the Morally Elite purge purportedly sinful symbols and statuary -- surely prepatory for the upcoming main "live" event (please don't say I didn't warn you) -- I suggest they widen their scope of destruction.

Having moved on from the purge of the Confederate battle flag -- that was soooo easy -- the Morally Elite have turned their sights to the more concretely monumental problems of statuary, schools, streets, etc., that commemorate, for example, the heroic life of Robert E. Lee.

To be sure, the flag and Lee stuff is so much skirmishing. The main assault on our Founding Fathers and their crummy Constitution lies just ahead.

The Fabian Society crest: a wolf in sheep's clothing

UPDATED BELOW =>

--

Interestingly enough, in the Twelth Report of the Fact-Finding Subcommittee on Un-American Activities of the California Senate, there is among the many Communists, Communist groups and front groups under discussion a case study of the John Birch Society, the group founded in the late 1950s by Robert Welch in opposition to Communism.

The John Birch Society of Robert Welch mainly survives in popular imagination for its having been "purged" by William F. Buckley from "mainstream" conservatism. This "purge" not only had the effect of shunting Robert Welch to the sidelines of conservative debate, it also cast out to the margins a wide if not Deplorable swath of Americans who embraced the tradition of "America First"-style non-interventionism and small-r republicanism which were also at the heart of conservative anti-Communism of the day.

It's a funny thing not to get a local paper. But I don't. Canceled the Washington Post again a few days ago with pledges not to succomb to that next *daily delivery deal of the century.* The last straw this time was a compound idolatry- and race- baiting frame by which to demonize tens of millions of Americans with forbears in the Confederacy masquerading as a news report: "White Virginians Feel Pressure over Lee Worship." Who needs such toxicity inside the home?

Only a small stack of Posts remains (bar-b-que kindling, crosswords for my mother) but I still found one last gem.

It was in the travel section. No, not in "How to stay safe if terror strikes while you're abroad" or "Dubai: Shopping the city's bustling gold, spice and textile marketplace." It appeared buried deep in the column inches of  "Sprinting through Beijing" by Debra Bruno.

Judging by the thumbnails, Seven Days in May (1964) is an anti-anti-Communist message movie about a military takeover of the US government thwarted by liberals. Half a century later, the spectre of military coup seems to be more than a fictional conceit given that a troika of real-life generals -- Kelly, McMaster, Mattis -- appear to be running an anti-MAGA White House with a team of insurbordinate civilian cabinet secretaries. In 2010, I wrote "Hail to the Junta?" over the Pentagon's reported refusal to provide the president with a military plan to exit Afghanistan. What we are watching unfold today is far more all-encompassing....

Looking for an upbeat way to start another week of disappointment and devolution? Watch this 2014 report on a protest in Tahitit against mosque-building and sharia -- i.e., Islam. Even if you don't speak French, the confident comaraderie of the protestors is noticeable.

Three years later, I can't tell whether they prevailed. Hope so. Tahiti sounds like a nice escape hatch.        

I look forward to speaking with Audrey Russo every month. In this most recent conversation, we spend about 30 minutes drilling down on comings and goings -- returning to Afghanistan, Steve Bannon's departure -- and what they all means.

Desk Drawer 4 is here.

Got an email the other night from a pal.

It was slugged: "Dear God in heaven, they're doing a re-enactment of the American Betrayal attacks."

Oh no, not again ...

Turns out "they" are merely David Horowitz, who, some oldtimers will recall, led a disinformation campaign against American Betrayal from his Frontpage website. It began publicly with a "take-down" called "McCarthy on Steroids" by Ron Radosh in August of 2013, which appeared in the same week as a five-part–series based on American Betrayal ran at Breitbart News. The Horowitz-led disinformation campaign ended continues to this day.

That first payload of disinformation was originally debunked at Breitbart News in three parts,...

As cultural revolutionaries in and out of government take a sledgehammer to our living core -- our history, ancestry, memory and imagination -- we see quickly there is no end to their rapacious will to destroy Us, the People. Last week, it was Robert E. Lee in a park; this week, it's Christopher Columbus in a circle. Soon, it will be George Washington as a capital. There is no end in sight to this American Cultural Revolution, not while its leading edge of hysteria is still building.

Across the pond, jealous cultural revolutionaries are considering some cleansing of their own by possibly removing the statue (above) of one of Britain's greatest heroes, Lord Nelson, from London's Trafalgar Square -- named for the epic sea Battle of Trafalgar, which Nelson won, and where he perished.

Tonight, President Trump is expected to announce a new and supposedly improved American military committment to The Islamic Quagmire Republic of Afghanistan.

There is no such thing.

I will reserve further comment until after the president's announcement. Meanwhile, this possible turning point seems like an apt moment to reflect on Candidate Trump's "America First"
foreign policy in the form of an address I gave last summer on the subject, which was recently published by the Journal of Strategy and Politics.

Here it is: America First: 1940-2016.pdf



I confess to some puzzlement over the framework of Dinesh D'Souza's new book, which I recently picked up. It's called The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left. 

Whither the Communist roots of the American Left? Seemingly gone in a Sieg Heil, along with FDR's admiration for (and manipulation by) "Uncle Joe" Stalin and the rest, although I will have to wait and see how it all comes out.

D'Souza sets out to "turn the tables on the Democratic Left and show that they -- not Trump --are the real fascists. They are the ones who use Nazi bullying and intimidation tactics and subscribe to a full-blown fascist ideology."  

But who are the "real fascists" anyway? Nazism,...

Circa's Sara Carter dusted off a February 20, 2017 Washington Times story and re-launched it on Twitter.

Headline: "Ex-Obama national security adviser to McMaster: Get rid of Bannon-led group"

The story doesn't resonate anew so much as throb violently.  

Back in February, the Wash Times reported:

Former Obama national security adviser Susan E. Rice on Monday urged her new counterpart in the Trump White House, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, to get rid of a national security wing led by presidential strategist Stephen Bannon.

“Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives Group,” Ms. Rice wrote in a congratulatory note to Lt. Gen....

Americans don't like being played for a sucker or patronized as Little People, so here's something else they won't like: being expected to believe without evidence that the Russians "attacked" our presidential election by "hacking" the DNC server -- and, the story doesn't go but this is what happened, exposing the sickening corruption of Clinton-Democratic machine. This Big Lie still-in-the- making has many fathers, mothers and caregivers, too: 1) the Democrats, to delegitimize Donald Trump's victory, paralyze his presidency, and sanctify Hillary Clinton's loss, thereby turning her into the patron saint of the New Cold and/or Hot War with Russia and even canceling our her and her husband's lifetimes of "collusion" with Beijing and Moscow dictators; 2) Democrat media (to do the same thing); and 3) Republicans, who can't wait to get back to Democrat/media business as usual, damn the Deplorables who won them their seats along with 31 states for Donald Trump.

With thanks to Gates of Vienna, Vlad Tepes, and Ava Lon for the translation.

I have been watching the case of Sebastien Jallamion for about long as Baron Bodissey, who, thankfully, has written the following introduction to the video. I am out of words.

We’ve posted previously about Sébastien Jallamion, a French policeman who was drummed out of the force for an anti-ISIS post on Facebook that was considered “hate speech”.

After he was cashiered, Mr. Jallamion was attacked by several “youths” and beaten very badly. Later he was prosecuted for his “crime”. Then, when his attackers were finally taken to court, they walked free after receiving the lightest possible slap on the wrist.

After his first prosecution, the judge refused to impose jail time. However, the prosecution appealed the leniency of the lower court, and the appeals court eventually imposed...

Want to blow through the poisonous miasma of Russian Collusion to find out what was really going in American political system in the last year or two or twenty? Whatever you do, don't ask Congress to investigate -- not even to ask a few lame questions in five-minute increments. What's the point? Congress is the most expensive dog-and-pony-show on earth. Sure, We, the Taxpayers, pay through the nose for these guys and gals to go to "work" every day: by my calculation (535 X $174,000), Capitol Hill costs Americans at least $93,090,000 annually just for the privilege of being "represented." But the only thing all that power and money coursing through those snaking hallways buys for us is power and money coursing through those...

Just for a moment, imagine that the Time cover features a different face: not that of the handsome young Donald Trump Jr., but the old one of Bill Clinton, whose every depravity has left him with a withered mask. 

The headlines on my imaginary Clinton cover are the same: "Red Handed. The Russia Scandal Hits Home." My highlighted prompts -- the white-bolded words -- are quite different.

Instead of "Hillary info," "I love it," and "obviously very high level," my cover highlights include:  

$500,000 speech .... Uranium One ... $148 million ... Clinton Foundation ... Rosatom chairman to Putin: “Few could have imagined in the past that we would own 20 percent of U.S. reserves.”

After some time off the grid, I've begun to come up to speed on the reax to President Trump's Western civ speech, which burns with an intensity mismatched with those few airy gusts of pro-West rhetoric Trump delivered in Warsaw last week. For example, that man of letters, Jonathan Capehart, declared himself "triggered" by Trump's having noting that "We," the Western world, "write symphonies." The lovely Amanda Marcotte (she who described abortion as akin to removing a cavity and babies as time-sucking monsters) trashed Trump's address as "alt-rigth" and "white nationalist rhetoric." I am sure they would all say the same of the Constitution.

Not that Trump's Warsaw speech is in that class, of course. It is a noteworthy fact,...

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,...
