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

Thanks to Murray on Twitter, we have Rudy Giuliani's impassioned conclusion to his testimony in Georgia today. 

Let me conclude by saying ... our Founding Fathers, miraculously, probably envisioned everything that would happen to us. They even envisioned this. A disputed election. Cheating. Stealing, And they made a choice. They made a choice of where to put the responsibility in a difficult situation like that. Article I, Section II of the of Constitution puts that responsibility right here, in the legislatures of the several states.

You are responsible for the selection of the electors. Not...

At this point in press censorship of The Big Steal, we have to grateful that Tom Fitton is given airtime to make our case. But what is Gregg Jarrett's problem?


Consider the similarities between the Obama document fraud and his constiutional ineligibility for the presidency, and the Biden election fraud and the unconstitutional conduct of key state elections.     

In the simplest terms, omitting much:

1) Barack Obama would not have become president without one fake document, which news media the political stratum protected at all costs. Nor would Obama have become president if the Constitution's eligibility requirements had been adhered to. (See "Remember When Obama Wouldn't Show ID?")

Last night, President Trump explained why he is "so determined to pursue every legal and constitutional option available to stop the theft of the presidential election." The litany of fraud and corruption he lays out is, as he says, "a shame on our Republic." It must be exposed, the injustice corrected, and the perpetrators punished. Please watch and share.

The man's glowing composure, I must add, becomes a winner of the greatest landslide in American history.   


There's really not much to add after listening to President Trump's statement -- although, in fact, there is much more to add in the way of exhibits, studies, analyses. Economist Peter Navarro, White House trade advisor, has put together an indispensable overview of November 3, 2020 election irregularities called "The Immaculate Deception."

Remember back when pre-MAGA  America got fed up and melted down the Capitol Hill switchboard and stopped GWB & John McCain's shamnesty? It's time to do that again X one million. We all have a role to play here.

Stop the Steal has the names and numbers of the first line of GOP Senators who must stand up with Rep. Mo Brooks and a growing roster of GOP House members who are pledging to Stop the Steal on January 6 here -- Tommy Tuberville, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Scott, Josh Hawley, Ron Johnson.

There's no reason to stop there, though.

A lot of force movement over the past few weekend days.

The President finally put together an Oval Office war council including Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Gen. Flynn, Patrick Byrne. The Swamp was there, too, in the guise of White House lawyers, who are suspected of leaking fake news about the powow to FakeNews, but the fact that Trump is being extensively briefed by such patriots is a huge plus for the American People, including him.

Smartmatic unleased its legal dogs upon Sidney Powell and the few news outlets reporting on her allegations and related election fraud evidence: Fox News, Fox Business, One American News Network (OANN), NewsmaxTV and Epoch Times.

I had begun wondering...

Is the following account from a reliable source? I have no idea. 

From the Hal Turner Radio Show:

"Hal, as you know I am a clerk for one of the Justices on SCOTUS. Today was like nothing we have ever seen. The justices are arguing loudly behind closed doors.

The Justices met in a closed and sealed room, as is standard.

Usually it is very calm, however today we could hear screaming all the way down the hall.

They met in person, because they didn't trust telephonic meeting as secure.

Or maybe it's six. There is so little national coverage of historic events that took place in the contested swing states (plus New Mexico?) that I am actually not sure.

Update: Kudos to Epoch Times for this interactive graphic on the "Contested Election." ("Interact" here.

Masses of breaking news all around. I am going to start today's necessarily fractional fraud round-up with excerpts from Sidney Powell's interview last night with Jan Jekielek because it is filled with equal parts wisdom, courage and key developments.

On her reaction to the Supreme Court dismissal of the Texas case:

I have a mixed reaction to it. I had some  concern over the standing of the states to raise the issues they were raising to begin with, but I  thought because it was a suit that the court had original jurisdiction of, the court would and  should take it, at least—to look at it and address  it more fully than they did. It has no effect on  our cases, because our plaintiffs are electors who have constitutional standing in the electors and  elections clause of the Constitution. So we will not have standing issues in the four cases that I  brought. The court really must address the merits.

This ovation will give you chills. 

Do you realize Fraud-Elect Biden could not dare walk onto that field?

Election News 38 is here.

Today's quick hits follow last night's response by the SCOTUS to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Texas Attorney General, which came as devastating news. However, as Tracy Beanz pointed out, the Texas lawsuit came as an unexpected bolt from the blue this week, and, as such, its setback does nothing to change any of the many strategies and processes already in place and ongoing.

This is true.

I saw varying opinions of the SCOTUS opinion: some legal experts said the dismissal on the point of Texas having not standing made sense; others said it was, as the president's lawyer Jenna Ellis put it, a political whim.

Rudy Giuiani went on NewsmaxTV to say "We're not finished, believe me!" From Newsmax (or...

I have a friend who drank 26 espressos a day so he could read all night. Or so he claimed. I certainly share the resolve, if not the habit. 

Here are a few books I read across this year which, sans espresso, turned out to be books I couldn't put down, as the wonderful phrase goes. One of them is also a book that keeps you up at night, which is something quite different. 

That one, the most important one, is The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life by Arthur Firstenberg. Everyone should read it. This deeply researched and mind-blowing work is hard to put down -- hard to stop thinking about -- and will not only keep you up at night, but will turn those glowing pinpoints of lighted phone chargers and signal boosters...

Election News 37 is here.


Picking my way through the election news blackout on the Right, I stumbled across a couple of items  from David Horowitz's Frontpagemag. 

The first item is that Radosh is back with a piece at Frontpage. I take this to signify the end of the public "rift" between Radosh and  Horowitz, supposedly over Horowitz's alleged support for Donald Trump.

I never believed the rift, or Horowitz's support for Trump, either. A to-the-hilt Bush neocon as late as February 2016, Horowitz made the switch as Trump's GOP primary victory became inevitable,...

Sidney Powell went on Lou Dobbs last night and presented more details from her independent investigation of the theft of the 2020 presidential election by enemies foreign and domestic, including a list of foreign suspects. She told Dobbs she would be able to present more evidence on his show very soon. 

Watch Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

This is a major, major developing story. Where it leads, we obviously don't know, and the co-opted media are not reporting it. It's possible the story could hit a wall but I doubt it. By now it already appears that our "three-letter agencies" were complict and/or incompetent in regard to foreign intrusion and manipulation of the 2020 election -- and, of course, with domestic political accomplices.

Behold Gateway Pundit's home page this morning (above). Laser-focused like a classic tabloid on the most important story of not the day but the century, Gateway Pundit is highlighting the momentous events that the Fourth Estate is ignoring, dismissing, twisting & supressing from its outlets stationed across the political spectrum

This is full-on war against the POTUS and his re-election, and the media have lined up with the enemy of the will of the People.

Earlier this week, a commentator emailed a short list of miitary and politicos a link to a new piece. I knew a few of the people, recognized names of some and didn't know others.

What drew my attention, however, was not the oped, but a comment that one person emailed to the list. Let's call him "Bob."

Bob wrote:

Good & provocative read. I don’t necessarily agree with everything  said but I am relieved! What I mean is that I am delighted to note that things are normalizing by returning to pre Trump administration partisan, but “ civilized” rhetoric! 

I didn't know Bob. I don't usually spend a lot of time of such email lists. The more I thought about what he was saying, the more I knew I had to say something back.

As we find ourselves catching up with communist subversion all around us, lately in regard to Chinese communist subversion, I have been happily amazed at the numerous shout-outs, recommendations, references, I am coming across on social media for my subversion primer, American Betrayal:The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character. 

The book is available in print, kindle, and as an audiobook, which I narrated. American Betrayal has also been translated into Polish and Portugese -- and "canceled" by all the dodgiest people.

The spotlight shifts to Georgia.

Evidence of every kind of ballot and voting machine fraud abounds in the Peach State -- including the infamous, statistically nigh impossible post-midnight vote-spike for Biden on receiving 98 percent of a batch of 23,487 votes. Georgia is also where, around the time of this same vote-spike (a statistically baffling phenomenon repeated in the swing states), security cameras recorded four people rolling suitcases out from beneath a table which were filled with ballots that were counted after the Republican poll watchers had been sent home.  

Out of nearly five million votes counted (one cannot say "legally cast") in the state, just 11,779 votes separate Biden from...

There is so much raw bulk election news underway, bigger and crazier all the time that I'm going to shoot off spray of Twitter grapeshot to try to cover some of it. 

And speaking of raw bulk election news, I hope everyone has seen and shared as widely as possible the testimony of Jesse Morgan, the truck driver for a subcontractor of USPS who drove as many as 280,000 filled-in mail-in ballots in bulk from New York to Pennsylvania. Morgan gave detailed, straightforward testimony at a election whistleblowers event presented by the Amistad Project ubder former Kansas Attorney General Phillip Kline.

Yesterday, I recorded a video at my new Patreon channel, The Silence of the Right. (It is available by monthly subscription, starting at one dollar.)

"The Silence of the Right" could be a regular feature, a daily roll of shame, documenting the silence of media on the Right (the Left is hopeless) when it comes to their non-reporting on the treasonous theft of the 2020 election from Donald Trump.

Last Wednesday in Pennsylvania and yesterday in Arizona, witnesses, from voters and poll workers to computer security and voting data experts, presented boat loads of evidence on ballot fraud and electronic election fraud...
