American Betrayal



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

-- Vladimir Bukovsky, co-founder of the Soviet dissident movement and author of Judgment in Moscow, and Pavel Stroilov, author of Behind the Desert Storm.

"Diana West is distinguished from almost all political commentators because she seeks less to defend ideas and proposals than to investigate and understand what happens and what has happened. This gives her modest and unpretentious books and articles the status of true scientific inquiry, shifting the debate from the field of liking and disliking to being and non-being."

-- Olavo de Carvalho

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

"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

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

"I have read it, and agree wholeheartedly."

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

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.

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

"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 

"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

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

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

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

"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 

"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 

It is myth, or a series of myths, concerning WW2 that Diana West is aiming to replace with history in 2013’s American Betrayal.

If West’s startling revisionism is anywhere near the historical truth, the book is what Nietzsche wished his writings to be, dynamite.

-- Mark Gullick, British Intelligence 

“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

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 

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

"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

[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 

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

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

I am posting the link to it now because I just discovered that Twitter is not permitting the link to be tweeted -- and I am guessing the equivalent censorship is in place on Facebook as well. Come to think of it, I am not noticing any coverage on any "news" sites, either.

That's the first thing Patrick Byrne, founding CEO of, tells Christopher McDonald of The McFiles (watch here).

The second thing Byrnes wants us to know is that he is not speaking as a Trump supporter.

Describing himself as a small-l libertarian, Byrnes explains he's never voted for a Democrat or Republican for president. His focus, indeed, his obsession, is the Constitution -- he has a Ph.D from Stanford on its intellectual history -- and his election computer fraud expertise comes out of his experience as an e-commerce entrepreneur.

Here are a couple of key primary documents, even if they are only tweets.

Last night, Trump's America was rocked when Jenna Ellis posted the following:


What in tarnation did this mean? The long knife wielders got out in front, salting eager media with anonymously sourced tidbits, "she through," "she's crazy," "even Trump thinks she's crazy," but surely that remains to be seen. Twitter moved in, just happening to take Powell offline for 12 hours, although I think the pause may well have served us all, kind of taken her off the hook for an instantaneous response until she was good and ready.

Here is Sidney Powell's full statement, which General Flynn, among others, retweeted.

In an extraordinary turnabout that foreshadows possible legal action, the two GOP members of Wayne County's election board signed affidavits Wednesday night alleging they were bullied and misled into approving election results in Michigan's largest metropolis and do not believe the votes should be certified until serious irregularities in Detroit votes are resolved.

The statements by Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairwoman Monica Palmer and fellow GOP member William C. Hartmann rescinding their votes from a day earlier threw into question anew whether Michigan's presidential vote currently favoring Democrat Joe Biden will be certified.

No matter what questions Lou Dobbs interposed, she was going to read to the American people as much as possible of an affidavit she had secured as a member of the Trump legal team about computerized election fraud. The media won't report on it, as we well know, and the information must get out to the American people somehow. To assist in that end, I am posting the transcript of Powell's interview below.

I just uploaded my first post-election conversation, taking stock of the propaganda and strategy that the Left, the Swamp, the Deep State, the RINO/NeverTrump lot are using to brain-wash America into believing "there was no election fraud," and prevent President Trump from proving it in court, and terrorize Trump supporters on the streets of the nation's capital.

The totalitarian overtones are unmistakable, as I was reminded when watching by chance a movie about the rise of Hitler, The Mortal Storm (pic above).

Behold the banner across America's paper of record: "BIDEN CALLS FOR UNITED FRONT AS VIRUS RAGES."

"United front"? Does it really say "united front"?

It is perfectly true that calling for a "united front" may be construed as simply calling for unity.

But "united front" also means something else. In the context of the socialist/communist forces vying for political control inside and alongside the Biden-Harris campaign, "united front" sounds quite sinister -- especially when attributed to the pretender-"president-elect" as anointed by big media/tech and Swamp. Why? The term couldn't be more communist.

As most people know (unless they are conned into trying to get information out of big media) these dumps arrived in key states  in the dead of night following that unprecedented and irregular "pause" in vote-counting in these same key states, where Trump, of course, was comfortably ahead to a point where even George Stephanopoulos had noticed things were "looking like a replay of  2016."

The electoral map above is the actual news of the day -- the real world events that the messaging propagandists a.k.a. "the media" a.k.a. #FakeNews are concealing from America.

The states that are neither blue nor red represent the states to date in which electoral challenges are pending. Collectively, they represent 94 Electoral College Votes. The Electoral College count from the remaining states with projected and unchallenged results today apportions 227 votes to Joe Biden and 217 votes to Donald Trump.

We know journalism is dead, but its funeral is for another day. For now, blanketing media propaganda and big tech censorship remain key to the Democrats' attempt to seize power through racking up anomalous, irregular, secretive post-election swing-state victories. If that sounds like a coup, that's because it is.

At this stage, the dynamic is simple: The Democrat machines churn out the Biden "votes" after Election Day, and the media propaganda outlets say Biden is "counting every vote" (never mind whether these votes are fraudulent) and winning. Why, it's all there in black and white -- and red, white and blue -- in today's WaPo and NYT, and just about every other paper in the...

The most lethal threat to our nation at this moment in the election crisis is what is deceptively known as the "news" media, now inundating Americans with non-stop propaganda. This threat is nothing new, but the potential lethality of the election crisis itself makes it exceptional. We, the People, are under all-out psychological attack, our perception of these momentous events the main target. The impact is, of course, compounded by the censorship agenda of such platforms as Twitter and Facebook, now unabashedly expunging and hiding facts about the events that emerge indepedently of the propaganda media. Big Tech's censorship agenda now regularly extends to statements to the American people made by the President of the United States.

All of which was predictable, all of which was predicted. Finding ourselves at war with our communications compromised and interrupted,...

Claims of a specific and blatant voter fraud in Arizona have surfaced on Twitter. This fraud purportedly involves poll workers forcing Sharpie permanent markers onto voters -- even to the extreme of taking ballpoint pens out of voters' hands and replacing them with Sharpies! The substitution, the claim goes, has the effect of invalidating ballots. Further, the anecdotal evidence suggests this was taking place in some Trump-supporting precincts.

Is it true that Sharpies may invalidate ballots? Yes. In fact, while there is a difference of opinion on the matter -- confusion is more like it -- certain states and organizations have issued guidances or warnings against using them to vote. In a cursory search, I found guidances against using Sharpies/permament markers to mark ballots from the Secretary of State of New Hampshire, articles on voting (even specifically in Maricopa...

Best meme ever, even without the "e."


Always great to go on with Audrey Russo -- and especially right before the most momentous election of our lives.

Listen here.

There is a coercive genius to the Black Lives Matter movement. Seven years after forming "in response" to the acquittal of a Hispanic civil rights activist and Obama supporter named George Zimmerman, who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in self-defense, this Marxist-led organization has emerged at the forefront of a brainwashing campaign that has caused masses of Americans to embrace mob rule over law and order, racial strife over patriotism, lies over facts, and to develop a deep and abiding hatred of themselves and their country. How? By turning every statistically rare shooting of a black man by police into "another Trayvon," regardless of the circumstances around each shooting -- and regardless of the circumstances around Trayvon. 

Today, when cities burn, stores are looted and policemen are attacked, these same BLM-brainwashed Americans, up to and including the leadership of the Democratic Party, regard the destruction and violence of these "mainly peaceful protests" as justified and legitimate. That's a revolutionary achievement of the highest order. If the Biden-Harris ticket prevails, BLM may be remembered as the most successful vanguard of Marxism in American history.

John Wayne's critique of the anti-American message of High Noon begins with what is, yes, the preposterous notion that American pioneers, who had crossed the plains in covered wagons to settle the West, would readily surrender their town to three bandits. This may make movie fans see the film in a new light. It certainly gave me a better understanding of the communist messaging in the script written by Carl Foreman, a former member of the Communist Party. Foreman's portrayal of American pioneers becomes a subversive use of cinematic art to throw dirt on the American spirit, to grind into the dust the heroism of the Old West, even in the clever guise of being a paeon to American individualism, as represented by Gary Cooper's role as the sheriff.

The reason I was thinking about Wayne's comments lately is because much of Foreman's jaundiced rewrite of Pioneer America captures the submissive conformity of a vast swathe of America today. It is hard to imagine the depth of disgust that John Wayne would...

Thanks be for the refuge and refreshment of the countryside from all of the honest-to-goodness "Man Caused Disasters" we are trying to weather and survive. Not so long ago, of course, the Obama-era phrase kicked up limitless derision, at least in our own quarters, because "man caused disasters" was such an unwieldy cover for Islamic jihad against the West. Little did we dream that even greater onslaughts against our liberty and sovereignty, not only as a free country but as free citizens and human beings, would be mobilized against us and weaponized, even from within our own ranks, by elected, confirmed, appointed, background-checked, vetted, respected, quoted, sought after, relied upon existential enemies within.

A month or so ago, I began posting videos and essays at Patreon, mainly but not exclusively for subscribers. I will be posting video weekly, but only so long as I have something new or something that has been overlooked.

I have been reading a fascinating book -- Final Verdict by Adela Rogers St. Johns. It is a memoir about her father, Earl Rogers, a California superstar defense attorney in the early part of the 20th century.

St Johns was a highly successful and wonderful writer, screenwriter and journalist. What really sets this 1962 book apart from anything I have read before is her unique perspective on her protagonist -- her brilliant, charming, but, of course, flawed father. She didn't come to know her father as most children do; after work, on weekends, and so on, a child gradually pulling a father into focus along the way to maturity. As a very young girl -- her feet still didn't touch the floor under her chair -- Adela Rogers became what is best described as her father's professional confidante. While her peers were in classrooms, she was very often in court rooms and her father's...

"Fake News" says it all -- but then there is so much more to say.

I am reading through a soon-to-be-published book, Disinformation: Soviet Political Warfare 1917-1992, by Natalie Grant. Besides becoming one of the pre-eminent experts in communist political warfare of the 20th century, Grant, who died in 2002, was born and raised in pre-revolutionary Russia and witnessed the revolution and civil war that followed. I will likely have something to say about the book as a whole, but for now I am busy underlining  definitions and observations, a couple of which I will copy here.

"An extensive disinformation operation of the Soviet type requires the strictest censorship, a smothered press, and a people downgraded to the `masses' and unable to take part in active politics."
