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

"[West] only claims `to connect the dots,' which is a very modest description of the huge and brilliant work she has obviously done. ... 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

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

Dear Glenn Kessler,

First of all, how come your "Fact Checker" column of 9/22 awarding Dr. Ben Carson "Four Pinnochios" for his statement regarding "taqiyya" is running for a second time? It first appeared last week, but there it is again in today's paper, 9/27, on p. A5.

Oh well, I missed it the first time. It's definitely worth revisiting. 

Dr. Carson said the following: "`Taqiyya' is a component of sharia that allows, and even encourages you to lie to achieve your goals."

You then write: "In other words, he appeared to be saying that this tenet of Islam offered some kind of loophole that would allow the Muslim to lie about his or her religious beliefs to pursue other objectives. Is this the case?" (Emphasis added.)

This map really is a beauty.

It makes it easier to envision how it could be that some very senior U.S. generals favored an offensive against Nazi Germany not from Northern France (or Northern France exclusively) but from Southern Europe -- famously described by Winston Churchill, who agreed with them, as Europe's "soft underbelly."

As noted in American Betrayal, among them were Gen. Ira Eaker, commander of Allied air forces in the Mediterranean theater; Gen. Carl Spaatz, U.S. commander of strategic bombing in Europe; Gen. Mark W. Clark, commander of the U.S. 5th Army in Italy, and, not least, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, soon to become Supreme Allied Commander in Europe.

A thought to hang onto as we sink deeper into the toxic mush: We are not imploding, we are converging. Which isn't to say that convergence doesn't cause implosion, but first things first. 

Below is a fleeting snapshot along the way to convergence (and implosion), a story about story about a map.

The story and map (above) both appeared in the New York Times on September 12, 1943, and, at least in cool, clear hindsight, have become a perfect indicator of just how successful the Marxist war of deception was and is. On the surface, the logic of the map -- underneath, the hidden war of deception. In the end, convergence. Or something.

With thanks to H. Numan, Vlad Tepes and Gates of Vienna.

Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders delivers a bravura performance, debating the Islamic invasion of the Netherlands with fellow parliamentarians who seem keen to turn the Netherlands into one big refugee center. Three thousand refugees, who are mainly not refugees and are mainly Muslim, are flooding the Netherlands each week. Wilders is calling for a halt and for closing the Dutch border. 

No wonder Wilders' PVV is the most popular party in the Netherlands polls. His is the only party fighting to save the nation from Islamization and financial ruin. 

 

A reporter just asked me if Dr. Ben Carson was correct to rule out a Muslim in the presidency. Below is my reply -- the short version. No caliphate, no jihad, even. First things first.

Is this the first time the media have focused directly on such a question regarding Islam? It feels that way, which, in itself, is an astonishment.

***

Your question: Do I support Dr Carson’s comments on a Muslim in the presidency? 

Yes, I do, and resoundingly so — as I assume anyone familiar just with the intractable differences between the U.S. Constitution and the tenets of Islam would agree.

Let’s look at just a couple of the basic contradictions. 

1) We have freedom of religion under the Constitution. 

Under Islamic law (sharia), there is no freedom of religion. Jews and Christians live as “dhimmi," without equal rights (and with many burdens which may include the “jizya” tax and other humiliations).

Why did we do it? Why did we send and spend so many precious lives and billions dollars for a nation of pedophiles and child rapists? And why do we tolerate our own leaders, military and civilian, who have known all about it all along and done nothing but condone and cover it up?

The rampant pederasty of Afghans was already in the media back in 2008. The...

Map from "Pinsk under Soviet Occupation" blog.

Americans with any feel for 20th century history may be reliably expected to know the significance of the date September 1, 1939 -- the day the Nazis started World War II from the West by invading Poland.

September 17, 1939, however, is the date that the the Soviets, our "premature allies," started World War II from the East by invading Poland. That's another story altogether. This date is not well known. Nor, really, is the Soviet rampage through Poland -- or even, much, the period of Nazi-Soviet alliance (1939-1941) in which Hitler and Stalin secretly divided up Europe. This same heinous division, by the way, was ultimately observed, sans Nazis, by Churchill and FDR and utlimately would set the...

Four months ago, when "Iraq" first popped up as an presidential campaign prompt, I posted the following essay. Consider it an introduction, or re-introduction, to further commentary on last night's debate.

"Something Is Missing from the Iraq War Story, As Usual"

The Iraq debate that has erupted three, seven, eight, twelve years too late may end up disproving the old adage, "Better late than never." Why? Too many glaring omissions from the conversation.

Let's start with Numero Uno: Islam. 

Once again, Islam is not part of the discussion. 

This omission, as readers of the website know, is nothing new in discourse about American wars in the Islamic...

A story going around Twitter tells us that a 61-year-old former Stasi agent, Anetta Kahane (above), will become Angela Merkel's new Facebook censor.

As in: Zere vill be no creetsissum on Facebook of zee "migrants"! (Und no kwotashun marx!)

In searching for confirmation of the horrendous story, I came across a brief interview of Kahane that is certainly for real -- and really chilling.

In it, Kahane explains the ideological framework in which Merkel's "migrant" madness fits, making clear how it fulfills the 21st-century totalitarian plan to destroy what remains of the West.  

Kahane, founder of a Leftist foundation (funded in part by Soros' Open Society Foundations),...

It's not every day that the opportunity comes along to talk Communist subversion in the Americas with experts from California -- Jeff Nyquist -- to Brazil -- Olavo de Carvalho. Thanks to hosts Jeff Nyquist and Allan Dos Santos for inviting me on.  

 

Just to recap -- and rerun Pat Crowley's excellent artwork:

Yale sold itself out in 2009 -- or tried. That was the year that Yale University Press submitted to the dictates of sharia and eliminated the 12 Danish cartoons of Mohammed in a book about the 12 Danish cartoons of Mohammed. That was the year "Middle East outreach" openly trumped freedom of speech, and the corruption was complete. But where was the Big Islamic Oil Money payoff?

Somehow, Yale wasn't as tempting as Harvard and Georgetown and so many other recipients of Muslim World lucre -- although the Yale business school did mange to net undisclosed sums from the Maktoun family of Dubai. So, Old Eli kept those tweaks and lifts kept coming: the fellowship to an Alwaleed-bin-Tala-connected daughter of a Muslim Brotherhood kingpin; the cold, locked-down "master's tea" Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard was given on his American tour marking the fourth anniversary of the cartoons' publication (where Yale's Muslim chaplain messed with the elderly Dane);  the fawning over over Jordan's Queen Rania on the occasion of opening a Palestinian agit-prop exhibit, and more. A partial chronology is here. Yale would also kill a ballyhooed interdisciplinary initiative to study anti-Semitism after hearing from "critics" including the PLO rep to the UN "complaining of the attention paid to anti-Semitism among Palestinians and [other] Muslims."

The city of Buda (today's Budapest) in the 15th century

You've heard of "redistribution of wealth." We are now watching in Europe something  even more ghastly take shape.

It's a phrase I'd never heard of before this week (although we suffer from the syndrome, too): the "redistribution of refugees." It is even worse than the redistribution of wealth because it makes you a stranger in your own land.

I have seen this before on my travels in Europe. There is vast pyscholgical and spiritual dislocation. There is permanent destruction of the cultural home. Such costs, such losses are gigantic, incalculable, but never considered -- at least not by our leaders.

Meanwhile, the masses of foreigners, to use the old-fashioned word, coming to Europe (or the US) from the Islamic world, from Africa (from South...

This essay (below) just went up at Breitbart News.

About that Hugh Hewitt interview of Donald Trump. It amazes me.

It amazes me that Trump's inability to name the top sheiks of jihad is Page One News to our Twitter-tagged #GOPSmartSet. I do not, however, detect similar alarm over how many of those sheihks' foot soldiers, both killers and colonizers, are streaming into borderless Europe, also the USA.

They are too busy with deep anaylsis of Hewitt's pop quiz 

This in itself produces a kind of Eureka moment. Little Picture people deal in factoids. Donald Trump is a Big Picture kind of guy.  

I offer Hewitt's Trump interview as Exhibit A. According to the radio host, knowing...

I wish I could put American Betrayal on the shelf and call it an old, if storied, chestnut, and be done with it. But it is more acutely relevant than ever as the crisis in our past we call "victory" now fires and burns anew.

I refer to the "alien hordes" overwhelming Europe, tipping-point style -- 800,000 expected this year in Germany alone. In descriptive terms, the old cliche for this press of people -- mainly young, most likely mainly Muslim, mainly healthy-looking, and mainly men in recent news photos -- conveys a meaning and connotation, also an emotion, that the term "migrant" does not, cannot and is not supposed to.

"Migrant" disarms us.

"Alien" puts us on our guard.
