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. 

"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. ... 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."

-- 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.

-- 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, fabrictaed, 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

American Betrayal is a monumental achievement. Brilliant and important.

-- Monica Crowley, Fox News analyst, radio host and author of What the Bleep Just Happened: The Happy Warriors Guide to the Great American Comeback

"If you haven't read Diana West's "American Betrayal" yet, you're missing out on a terrific, real-life thriller."

-- Brad Thor, author of the New York Times bestsellers Hidden Order, Black List and The Last Patriot.

Part 20 of the "Post-Constitutional Election" series is here.

The insularity of Eliteworld is such that when Evan Thomas (Phillips Academy, Harvard) argues in a New York Times op-ed, "Why We Need Foreign Policy Elites," he assumes that his Exhibits A & B  -- (A) "opening China" (B) arms control treaties (detente) with the USSR -- will all but clinch his un-democratic case for the necessity of turning over foreign affairs to a cadre of Ivy-trained policy advisors.

That's bad enough. 

What comes next, though, goes beyond liberal platitudes about what might constitute unassailable policy successes.

Greene in a speech for the NATO secretary general in 2014. Gen. Greene, it should be recalled, was the highest ranking officer to be murdered by one of our Afghan "allies" in the spate of Afghan-on-Western (Muslim-on-infidel) killings that were a cost Uncle Sam was willing to factor into the US-led-Afghan...

Watch Andrew Bostom lecture on "Islam and the `Sexual Ethics' of Jihad Slavery," as presented on January 29, 2016 at The Education Policy Conference in St. Louis, MO. 

The depredations of ISIS in the Middle East, the Muslim migrant (real) war on women in Europe, will never seem "extreme" again -- within the Islamic context, that is. They are perfectly Islamic, sanctioned and practiced for 14 centuries. 

The trick is to prevent the Islamic context from becoming the Western context.

Stop Islamic immigration into the West now.

The Hill has published a list of 61 Republican lawmakers, operatives, donors and pundits who have vowed never, ever to vote for Donald Trump, ever. Never.

No matter how many lights it takes to write their names, even this most luminous concentration of anti-Trump fervor (vows by the dozen!) is unlikely to affect the final GOP delegate count too terribly much. 

Not surprisingly, there is overlap between "Never Trump" and the "contributors" of my ever-growing, ever-oozing Right's Anti-Trump Lexicon. This merits a salute: selected quotations to commemorate the expert insights and always elevated -- yea, rarified -- tone of #NeverTrump.

Extremely distressing news from the Guardian by Luke Harding about the great Vladimir Bukovsky (above): 

The Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky has been on hunger strike at his home in Cambridge for more than a week in protest at what he calls the “Kafkaesque” British judicial system.

Bukovsky was charged last year with child pornography offences. He strenuously denies the allegations. In August he took the unusual step of suing the Crown Prosecution Service for libel: he is seeking £100,000 in damages and claims the CPS has “falsely and maliciously” hurt his reputation.

Maxing out maudlin to a pinnacle of banal that overshadows even audacious theft and exploitation, behold Ronald Reagan as heavenly sock puppet of #NeverTrump, breaking his own 11th commandment not to speak ill of other Republicans with a whopper straight from "Jimmy's World," brimming over with a tear too gaudy for Bambi. 

I think what they meant to say was: Congratulations to the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump, on his outstanding sweep of five states yesterday. Yuge! It's time for conservatives and populists in the Republican Party to come together and unify and defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall.

Part 18 of the "Post-Constitutional Election" series is here.

Curly Haugland is an unbound RNC delegate from Bismarck, North Dakota, and a member of the national convention rules committee. He is also something of a regular on cable, especially CNBC, where, in the calmest of tones, Curly will explain that ours is a nation of delegates, not voters -- at least as far as the GOP presidential nominating process goes.

To be sure, Curly doesn't know why his party even bothers to hold primaries. It's not that the contests are completely irrelevant -- the delegates "use the primaries to get some kind of an indication of the preference of the population" -- but, as Curly puts it, "the delegates at the convention choose the nominee, not the voters."

Bismarckian delusions of grandeur? Not...

Pt. 17 of the "Post Constitutional Election" series is here.

This is getting interesting.

Donald Trump is now the only candidate running for president of the United States to call for the release of the 28 redacted pages in the 9/11 commission report. These pages, which are believed to implicate Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attacks, were hidden away by the Bush administration, and continue to be withheld from public view by the Obama administration.

Sen. Rand Paul also supports releasing the 28 pages. While still a presidential candidate, Paul introduced a Senate amendment in June 2015 to declassify the 28 pages.

In this excellent overview of the 9/11 cover-up the Bush-Obama administrations have engineered and perpetuated, symbolized by those 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 report, former US Senator and Florida Governor Bob Graham, still campaigning tirelessly for the 28 pages' release, makes a point I had not heard before.

(Out on the hustings, by the way, Jeb Bush claimed not to know what the 28 pages were.)

Graham says there is even more than truth and justice at stake. Having continued to hide the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 from the American people, the US government has in effect given the original Islamic state a green light for global jihad.

Graham:

I think that the Saudia have gotten the message that given what they know they did in 9/1 that the United States' failure to react is essentially a form of impunity, that we can do anything we want...

Among the stranger phenemena of this campaign season are Ted Cruz's segues from real person into the character played by Michael Douglas in the 1995 movie The American President. I have posted two performances above; there may be more.

On "defending" wife Heidi from Donald Trump's dread "retweet" -- already absurdist melodrama -- the bizarro fact is that Ted Cruz relied on the lines of a script, not his own mind, to speak out. And not just the lines. Cruz further stole Michael Douglas's performance of those same lines to try to generate righteous anger over his wife's "attack." Think about it: The man's wife is supposed to be under attack, and, in response, he plays a part, thick, like a ham. Such "scenes" have sparked some amusement, but little reflection on the oddness of...

Whenever Hiroshima is in the news -- lately, for Secretary of State John Kerry's visit and talk of President Obama's possible visit -- some number of opinion pieces follow, weighing President Truman's decision to drop two atomic bombs on Japanese cities at the end of World War II in the Pacific. Left or Right, most of these pieces seem to write themselves, following narrow and constricting lines of accepted narrative, as though the writers were actors reading lines in a play.

One in particular caught my attention this time aroound, namely for its headline, "Simply no other choice," which perfectly encapsulates the fore-ordained school of U.S. history that cancels questions and punishes exploration.

I read the statement you made as president of the Media Research Center, applauding CNN and MSNBC for banning Trump supporter Roger Stone from their presidential election coverage.

CNN, Politico reports, banned Stone in February over his tweets about Jeb Bush supporter and CNN analyst Ana Navarro (Stone called her “Entitled Diva Bitch,” “Borderline retarded,” and “dumber than dog s---” [stet]). The MSNBC ban follows Stone's recent radio discussion of his planned Stop the Steal movement at the upcoming GOP convention...

Smokin' hot off the Youtube, with thanks to Ken Sikorski of Tundra Tabloids.

The transcript of the Trump-Matthews exchange is here.



Does Ana Marie Cox blame women assaulted by rapists for their own violent attacks? 

I ask because this is exactly the stance she takes regarding Donald Trump and the deviant invective one Rick Wilson (among many others on the GOP/Right) uses against Trump and his supporters. Wilson is the GOP Rubio strategist and commentator whose violent and depraved public ravings deserve a chapter of their own in The Right's Anti-Trump Lexicon, or, perhap better, in a psych textbook.

Cox opens her back of the book interview with Wilson in the NYT Sunday Magazine, "Rick Wilson Would Take Clinton Over Trump," thus:

You've gained lots of fans on the left thanks to your vicious descriptions of Trump and his supporters.

As Brussels convulsed in bloody jihad on the morning of March 22, 2016, Ivar Mol sent out this tweet (above). 

Translation from the Dutch: "How can you continue teaching when Muslims in your class are cheering?"

I don't know who Ivar Mol is. His twitter account identifies him as a meditation and yoga teacher.   

His tweet certainly caught my attention, along with that of many others, including some casting doubt on what is, after all, a rhetorical question.    

The implications of Ivar Mol's question shouldn't be shocking, however; not at this late date. From the attacks of 9/11 to Gaza every day, we should be well used to bloodthirsty demonstrations of approval for jihad carnage, as inculcated in followers of Islam by every single authoritative Islamic (not "radical" Islamic) text. That is not to say that many among us will not be shocked -- if they ever even hear of such things.

They both want to stop Trump through their own brands of activism that lie outside the normal political process -- "by any means necessary," at least as differently defined inside their own spheres of influence.

He is now actively organizing what he calls a two-track process to block Trump's road to the nomination. Likely failing at Track 1 -- the primary process where Trump is winning -- Kristol has announced a switch to Track 2-- creating a third party to try to deny Trump the nomination or later...

The common ground of Left and Right against Trump seems to be expanding before our eyes, but, in fact, it has long been a shared political realm. We might have missed this because the core issues Left and Right stand together on have been successfully removed from public view, political discourse, and thus the people's judgement -- at least, that is, until Donald Trump.

For example, the Obama administration has already "re-settled" more than one million refugees in...

Part 10 is here.

Donald Trump's presidential candidacy threatens the Left's strangehold in this country more than any other movement in American politics in my memory, if not modern history.

That's the simple reason thousands of Leftists mobilized in Chicago last week to shut down the democratic process -- to seize the space inside and around a Trump political rally and transform it into a morass of menace, sirens, chaos, and mobs.  

Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Rachel Maddow, Jake Tapper, Megyn Kelly et al to the woeful contrary: Nothing, but nothing, Donald Trump has said from his podium about protestors disrupting his rallies (punch him in the face, get him out of here, beat the crap out of anyone that throws tomatoes at me, I'll defend you in court -- the works) drives the anti-USA agendas of these Leftist groups; nor did it inspire them to organize the mobs that "successfully" interupted the democratic process last week in Chicago.

One of the critically important issues ignored by the Fox panel in last night's debate was Donald Trump's proposed temporary ban on Muslim immigration into the United States. 

Naturally, then, inquiring Fox minds also ignored the globe-shifting migration of hundreds of thousands of mainly Muslim men into Europe in the last year alone. Thus, there were no questions about how the candidates might seek to protect the USA from the effects of mass Islamic immigration, such as the largely Islamic epidemic of violence...

Trump senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, late of Sen. Jeff Sessions' staff, went on with Breitbart News Saturday Stephen K. Bannon, as reported here (including audio).

Breitbart emphasized Miller's "epic" case against Marco Rubio, but Miller's opening remarks about Ted Cruz were to me more illuminating, especially in the context of the "post-constitutional" election series I've been writing.

In the course of this series, I've examined Ted Cruz's branding as the "consistent conservative," also the constitutional conservative, and found it wanting on several levels. For one thing, Cruz has flip-flopped in the space of the primary cycle on vital immigration and trade issues.

The breathtaking rage of this recent tweet by Charles Murray may be submerged in the masses of words of his latest article, "Trump's America"  --  but I find both hard to fathom.

In explicating "Trumpism," Charles Murray argues that our Anglo-Protestant heritage (bad) has "inevitably faded" (good). This ignores, first, the 1965 Immigration Act that, in effect, made war on that heritage, and the nation and culture that had grown from it. He ignores also the dire toll that the unceasing wave of mass immigration ever since has had on cultural cohesion -- and now even national existence. His is a purely economic and class related analysis which misses so much of the living, breathing cultural core of Trump's appeal.

Thanks to Vlad Tepes blog for subtitles and Oz-Rita for translating.
