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

In 2000, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick made an acute observation that I've not heard any other observer point out: the switch from "liberal isolationism" to "global engagement" -- almost overnight -- that coincided with the arrival of the Clintons in the White House.

In Commentary, she wrote:

When the Reagan administration offered arms and training to the Nicaraguan resistance, law professors all over America pronounced the policy illegal and utterly rejected the argument that force could under certain circumstances be used to restore or protect democracies. As late as 1989, when the U.S. intervened in Panama under George Bush, leading liberals in and out of Congress described this action as the clearest possible violation of the UN Charter's prohibition on force, and professors of international law reminded all and sundry that the use of force against another state is never justified except in self-defense, a concept that was itself to be very narrowly interpreted.

In Sharia-Britain, patriots are not permitted to sit in a pub and watch football with their children.

Western hero Tommy Robinson and two friends and their seven kids among them went to such a British pub, the Prince Regent, I think I heard, to watch football and have lunch.

Police showed up in force to disperse Tommy FOR NO REASON. On being asked to explain Tommy's offense, they issued him a citation.

Please watch. Even after Tommy and his party leave the pub, the police follow them (around Minute 15), down the lane. They don't even care when the little girls start crying.

That's how police states work.

  



Earlier this week, the Daily Beast published a piece by serial liar, disinformation artist, mixer-upper and Hillary-Clinton-supporter Ron Radosh. (I will resist noting that they deserve each other, but they do.) It is called: "Steve Bannon, Trump's Top Guy, Told Me He Was a `Leninist,' Who `Wants to Destroy the State."

According to the laws of punctuation, the quotation marks around `Leninist' and `Wants to Destroy the State' indicate that these words are actual quotations, but the whole "conversation" smells of a rat.

Why? For starters, Radosh --...

Having put the lexicon aside back in March, the latest GOPe-unhinging event -- Trump's excellent decision to make Stephen K. Bannon CEO of the Trump campaign -- tell me it's time to pick it up again.

I anticipate, if not new depths exactly, greater shrillness, even more toxicity. Now, where were we? A is for Abortion

I am canvassing the news outlets on the shot-in-the-arm presidential election news that Stephen K. Bannon and Kellyanne Conway have vaulted to the helm of the Trump campaign.

Note that Kellyanne Conway, widely respected as a seasoned political pollster, is attracting far, far less attention than Steve Bannon in a news media endlessly concerned (obsessed) with all things female (more accurately, all things non-white-male). As usual, media "concern" (obsession) is exposed as a sham, a means only to advance the Left-wing agenda. (See "feminist"/media rejection of female victims of Bill Clinton's sex crimes for more examples.) 

Clearly, the ascension of Kellyanne Conway does not advance this Left-wing agenda. As the first woman to become campaign manager of a GOP presidential campaign, Conway's very appointment silences one stupid anti-Trump mantra, "he hates women," in a soundbyte. Besides that -- and I only say "besides that" because that's how these bean-counters think -- Conway is a highly regarded, savvy political professional. Therefore, MSM strategy goes (conscious and subconscious), best to overlook that Conway story and see what we can do with anti-Establishment Right and Left Steve Bannon, hmmm? So controversial!!

WND.com recently asked me to comment about the resurgence -- or, rather, uninterupted practices -- of the Muslim rape rings in Rotherham and elsewhere in England, the ones that have turned thousands of young mainly native British girls into sex slaves and gave the English language the vile term "grooming gangs."

Noting that "the systematic exploitation, rape and abuse of a nation’s daughters would once have been cause for revolution or war" -- yea, verily -- the article quotes counterterrorism analyst and author of See Something, Say Nothing Phil Haney, who predicts that European governments will respond to "migrant"/Islamic violence against women by warning women "not to incite migrants," presumably by wearing clothing other than sacks. Such pressure,...

Writing in the Washington Times today, Rowan Scarborough examines the resumes of those 50 "national security Republicans" to sign the latest group-hissy-fit over the fact that 14 million Republican primary voters ignored them and made Donald Trump the GOP presidential nominee.

What does Scarborough find? Fifteen consultants and/or lobbyists, some investors, a bunch of lawyers with corporate clients, fourteen think tankers and nine professors. 

*Pop*

Welcome to the world Washington Insiders terrified that Donald Trump will derail the gravy train and call out their decades of foreign policy disasters.  

Read the article here.







Dutch General Ter Poorten, commander of Dutch forces in the East Indies, spent much of World War II in Japanese captivity (above). Prior to Pearl Harbor, he alerted the US to Dutch decryptions of Japanese coded messages about upcoming Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor and elsewhere.

Probably the most important lesson of American Betrayal  is that practically everything Americans are taught about the "American Century" is a myth or a lie. This extremely destabilizing lesson calls almost everything we "know" into question,...

Muhammad Al Adnani, spokesman for Al Qaeda in Iraq (and later for the Islamic State), as i.d.'d by the DIA in August 2012.

---

Drawing on an August 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency cable, one of the documents currently spilling out of "secret" archives that buttresses Donald Trump's depiction of President Obama and Hillary Clintons as "founders" of ISIS, Breitbart News reports that Hillary Clinton was well aware that that "the Obama administration was supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State." 

The cable also discusses the emergence of a broader Islamic state from the jihadist factions represented by al-Adnani, which were being supported by "the West,...

Lead story, The Hill, August 16, 2016

-- 

In a previous post, I note the deceptive practice by the MSM of presenting Clinton-linked political professionals as non-aligned experts.

The 24/7 deception by the MSM of presenting themselves as non-aligned news professionals goes without saying.

Only sometimes it doesn't.

Sure, there is the often mindless, and also often lawyerly shading and shaping of news that is constant, and thus hard to keep up with as it just washes over us. In this category, I would put the NYT/CNN's Maggie Haberman's recent expert assessment of that complex of soul-and-nation-devouring Clinton corruption, most currently on view in putrid gushers of unsecured email and other...

The MSM is openly organized as Clinton 2016 General HQ. We know that.

For a reality check, just imagine if Donald Trump's campaign manager ever sat on the board of a company that "bagged $35 million from Putin-connected Russian govnt fund"  -- as did Hillary's campaign manager, John Podesta. (Podesta's lobbyist brother, Tony, does all right in Putinworld, too.)

Or, if Donald Trump approved the sale of 20 percent of US uranium deposits to Putin's Russia -- as SecState Hillary Clinton did.

What with the Clinton Foundation in the news lately for being at the locus of Hillary Clinton's mind-blowing corruption, selling-out of national patrimony, and the like, I thought it would be nice to revisit the glory days of the old place -- as in 2012 when Saudi Arabian Prince Turki, Bill Clinton's Georgetown roommate and, more important, the Saudi dictatorship's former intelligence chief and brother-in-law of Prince Bandar, the Saudi dictatorship's former US Ambassador, came around to toss the following bouquet to Bill Clinton.

"Muslims will never forget your deliverance of Bosnia-Herzogovenia and Kosovo, and near-deliverance, within 100 meters, of Palestine from occupation."

Bill Clinton, Islamic icon: How perfectly beautiful. Do watch at least the beginning of video for yourself -- it really does have to be seen to be believed (especially the canned flourishes that play as Bill takes centerstage) -- and ponder the clo$e per$onal relation$hips that all the Clintons (all the Bushes, too!)...

The Post Constitutional Election, Part 25 is here.

Dear DNC,

Doubtless, I would reach more people if I wrote the following message in a private, hackable email, but I am concerned Russian cyber-trolls are distracted this week by heaps more breaking scandal about Hillary Clinton's loyal services to what some people like to call "Mother Russia." Between that Hillary-approved uranium deal transferring 20 percent of US uranium to Russian control (netting $145 million for the Clinton Foundation) and, now, her success in getting US investors to fund Russian military research...

Watch around Minute 8 to see Allen rationalize Muslim-on-infidel "insider attacks" as resulting from Ramadan fasting, bad weather and "operational tempo."

---

Ret. Marine Gen. and former ISAF commander John R. Allen, who spoke for Hillary Clinton at the DNC convention last week, has now taken on the role of Clinton campaign surrogate to attack Donald Trump for having "no credibility."

Let's talk about credibility -- Allen's.

Allen is a lot more than square shoulders and four stars. He is 1) a perfect exemplar of dhimmitude, an Islamic apologist extraordinaire, one who has even rationalized the murders of his own men by Muslim "insider attacks" (see below);  2) Allen stands as tall as a moral midget, "exonerated" by a Pentagon IG in much the same way as Hillary Clinton was "exonerated" by the FBI.

In a normal world, such a man would be shunned by any respectable politician seeking public support. But this is not a normal world, and Hillary Clinton is not a respectable...
