This is a review of some books that
have influenced my world view. Perhaps the authors are not always
right. Perhaps they have their own agendas which they have not told
us about. That is what makes a study more interesting; a search for
the truth among the noise. I think that I have found the major
political influence of modern times. It is certainly one of them. You
might find them a help too. There are also one or two that
failed to excite my admiration. The readers' comments on the
Amazon site are useful; so are their ratings. Those who
disapprove usually rate low. Other books further down are merely
those that been recommended. Read for yourself. Think for yourself.
Decide for yourself. Good luck
In fact books tend to be hidden rather than banned. It worked well until the Internet made it easy to exchange ideas.
Is the hero of a series of children's books heavily marketed because they are Politically correct, as Propaganda to pervert young minds. JK Rowling is, naturally enough a Socialist who produced a substandard variant of The Lord of the Rings; that was written by JKK Tolkein, a professor of Anglo-Saxon. It was based on deep knowledge of the Northern sagas. Rowling's output is third rate flim flam.

This come from the BBC, a Socialist propaganda machine. Believe it if you will. Rowling is not at the top, propaganda notwithstanding.
Has thousands of books for free. They are all out of copyright. Some are genuine classics, worth reading for educational value.
Trahison des Clercs
Is French for the Treason of Intellectuals, written by Julien Benda, a Jew in 1927. The Wikipedia chooses to allege that:-
Benda is now mostly remembered for his short 1927 book La Trahison des Clercs, a work of considerable influence. The title of the English translation was The Betrayal of the Intellectuals, although "The Treason of the Learned" would have been more accurate.
This polemical essay argued that French and German intellectuals in the 19th and 20th century had often lost the ability to reason dispassionately about political and military matters, instead becoming apologists for crass nationalism, warmongering and racism. Benda reserved his harshest criticisms for his fellow Frenchmen Charles Maurras and Maurice Barrès. Benda defended the measured and dispassionate outlook of classical civilization, and the internationalism of traditional Christianity.....
Benda survived the German occupation of France, 1940–44, and the Vichy regime despite being a Jew and having called the Germans "one of the plagues of the world".
I choose to allege that it is my considered opinion that the Wiki is lying, the Jew lied or both. Certainly current 'intellectuals' are Cultural Marxists or Lenin's Useful Idiots, making Propaganda for the Puppet Masters, by marketing Racism as long as it is anti-English, anti-Western Civilization & Treason.
PS The fact that he survived the war suggests that the Holocaust® Story is a pack of lies. It is not conclusive proof though.
The Future Of The Printed Book
Books are going to be round in some form but printing is not always going to be preferred. Papers are proving that, by their long term decline while the Main Stream Media are very much alive. There are implications. Where will it all lead? Sean Gabb is not sure either.
JR Books On Line
JR is a very sound sort of chap who has put several rare books, the sort that Jews do not like on line.
These are not so much reviews as deconstruction, a look at the hidden messages, the implicit assumptions behind the story - in fine the propaganda line.
These offerings were important. Now they are read less but still matter.
Do you want to know about literature? Should you? At least know about Writer's Block. Books can be dangerous to tyrants.
So, you are interested in books. You must be or you would not be here. Maybe you are a writer, aspiring to fame and fortune. If so you should know what Fred is telling us about the business. Fred was in Viet Nam. Fred was a journalist. Fred writes books. Fred is in the business. Fred knows of what he writes.
That is how the Soviets did it. In the West it is usually more subtle.
Book of the Week
Something special comes to hand. This is it.
The Abolition of Britain
It is the abolition England in fact and by stealth.
For the unenlightened the 'Abolition of Britain' will be met with a mixture of shock and incredulity. For those who have been paying attention (and have done their homework) this book will serve as a sad epitaph to what has happened to our once green and pleasant land. In his excellent book, Peter Hitchens explains how and why our country has changed so much in the space of a few decades.
This is a blow by blow account of the systematic tearing down of our ancient traditions and system of beliefs through a cultural revolution that has, by and large, gone unnoticed by the majority of the British people because each new change has been quietly introduced by stealth.
This book is one of the few I have read that is difficult to put down and I highly recommend it. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
A Brief History of Crime by Peter Hitchens
Is the companion volume and highly worthwhile. Is not so much about crime as about the politics of crime and life generally in England. Much has been changed since the 1960s by our rulers including their attitudes to life, politics and morals. University humanities departments have much to answer for. Believing that crime is the result of poverty and mistreatment sounds good if you live nowhere near the lower classes. Believing that government employees can persuade the vicious to go straight is a mixture of ignorance and stupidity. Using coercion as a fall back position makes some sense but in practice it means coercing the decent rather than the evil. I know of one arson case where the criminals got away with it because the police are cowards or perhaps bribed.
Government policy is to treat criminals as victims of society rather than perpetrators who have made free choices. The villains are laughing all the way to the next robbery. If honest people defend themselves they become victims of official malice as well as crime. Tony Martin was just the one who got the publicity.
The ruling classes tolerate juries when they do not loathe them because they are genuinely independent; not beholden to the prosecution or defence and a final bulwark against malicious governments. Labour is active in sabotaging them. Tories are little better. See page 232 on.
This book is worth a read for its common sense. If you believe that the Tories are any better than Labour you really need to read this one.
Blair is guilty of a wide ranging attack on liberty in England. He is a lawyer and knows what he is doing. Jenkins was also very effective and dangerous. The Tories are not vicious, greedy and authoritarian; they are stupid, greedy and authoritarian. Mr. Hitchens does not tell us about Antonio Gramsci, chief theoretician of the communist party and his influence on New Labour or for that matter the Fabian Society so I do.
Treason at Maastricht: Destruction of the Nation State
Deals more with the criminal aspects of political actions in the United Kingdom. Norris McWhirter and Rodney Atkinson, the authors brought criminal cases charging treason against Hurd and Maude to English courts. They were dismissed without a proper explanation. The men who make up the legal system are part of the problem.
An Eye for an Eye
John Sack has done the truth-loving community a great favour by publishing this thoroughly researched book. It deals with the manner of how the transition from German to Polish rule was effected in the areas ceded to Poland by the Allies. It is well known that Hitler had started "ethnic cleansing" of Poles from the "Warthegau" (areas annexed after the Polish campaign in 1939) and one can hardly wonder that the Poles most heartily reciprocated after Hitler's defeat. In view of the abundance of books about the Holocaust it is to Mr. Sack's credit to have shown to the world that Germans were also victims of Polish and Jewish revenge, when the opportunity arose. No past history of misdeeds was necessary, that they had been born of German parents sufficed. The fact that the author had to overcome a highly effective censorship before he was able to get the book published bodes ill for our society, which is so fond of its purported "freedom of speech." I am convinced that if Mr. Sack had not been Jewish the book would, in all probability, never have seen the light of day. If it had been self-published it would probably never have been reviewed and relegated to obscurity in spite of its intrinsic value. That Jews were in leading positions in the Polish State Security Office immediately after the war and that a number of them conducted themselves in an inhuman manner should surprise no one, unless one believes that Jews have transcended the bounds of the human race and joined the realm of the good angels. When it comes to war the worst of human instincts are released on both sides of the front. It needs to be remembered also that only the armies had stopped shooting on VE day while private wars, due to accumulated hatred by the oppressed, had continued for some time thereafter. In order to avoid another Holocaust we have to deal with the basic human phenomenon of hate, which cannot be legislated out of existence. Moralising will not do either. The roots of conflict must be exposed and intelligently dealt with by considering the grievances of both sides. This Mr. Sack has done in an admirable manner and An Eye For An Eye should be used in Holocaust education courses to show the universality of evil.
A Jew writes about Jewish torture and Jewish evil. Jews pretend he doesn't exist.

Behind Communism by Frank L Britton
Is an orphan. Frank Britton took the story up to 1952 or so. Who was he? A sound man but that is about all we know. We owe him a debt for enlightening us. He tells us his story and gives us the sources that we can check. It is getting more difficult to find. At least one site has dropped it so I am posting it.
This book was the start of my journey toward enlightenment. The truth is a weapon too little used. If you do not know who or what is behind communism you need this book. The evidence is still out there even though they have largely taken over the media. The Wikipedia gives us nothing. It censored him but then it is controlled by those with an agenda. You can find out a bit more about the man at Frank Britton.
The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life
the late Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray
It caused two reactions. The first was furious abuse. The second was a news black out. This is not quite censorship but it has the same effect. Their sin was to write about intelligence and race honestly. Pushing the multiculturalism line would have been all right. Telling the truth was not and is not. Their important point is that there are differences in the average intelligence of races which have important results. People in America have IQs averaging around 100. Blacks in America average 85; those in Africa achieve 70. Jews come in higher at 115. Look at the statistical connections between IQ and success to know why it matters. People in prison tend to low IQs. Those with real Nobel Prizes average high. This excludes the Nobel committee's sillier awards and political awards in literature and other areas where waffle predominates. If you get abused by the left you well have something worth saying and worth hearing.
Bent Coppers or Untouchables: Dirty Cops, Bent Justice and Racism in Scotland YardRobert Mark was the commissioner who sacked 300 men and that was just in the CID. He was the last commissioner in the Met who gave us serious reason to believe that he had any intention of doing anything about police corruption. That was in 1977. It can be done and it needs to be kept being done. When bent coppers are frightened of the honest ones, it is as under control as it is ever going to be. Robert Marks was in thirty years ago. Significantly he was an outsider so blackmailing him was not quite so easy.
by Michael Gillard and Laurie Flynn
The title says it all, well most of it. There isn't much about racism or even bent justice but the rest is spot on. Michael Gillard did a lot of financial writing for Private Eye and came up with some good stuff. He named names and rarely if ever got sued. That means that he got it right and could prove it. The police are also enthusiastic about using libel to suppress the truth and the Police Federation has a track record of success. Perhaps that is where the bent justice comes in.
PS Messrs. Gillard and Flynn are being done for Libel by one, Harry Ramis. He is trying for damages, aggravated damages and a gagging order He is having a go at publishers Cutting Edge Press (Edinburgh) too. See www.pressgazette.co.uk

The Big Short - Inside the Doomsday Machine - an excerpt is at Betting on the Blind Side
Based on reading Michael Lewis's Liar's Poker and Moneyball, I wondered whether The Big Short would prove to be entertaining and informative. If you've read some of Lewis' books, you might agree that the "entertaining" part would seem to be a reasonably safe bet. It turns out, it is. The Big Short is fast-paced, straightforward, conversational and salty--very much like his earlier works. Indeed, if you didn't know Michael Lewis had written this book, you could probably guess it. It is easy reading and very hard to put down. In short (no pun), The Big Short doesn't disappoint in being entertaining.
In a sense, this book is similar to Moneyball in that Lewis tells his story by following a host of characters that most of us have never heard of--people like Steve Eisman (the closest thing to a main character in the book), Vincent Daniel, Michael Burry, Greg Lippmann, Gene Park, Howie Hubler and others.
How informative is the book? Well, it may seem that Lewis has his work cut out for himself, since the events of the recent financial crisis are already well known. More than that, lots of people have their minds made up concerning who the perps of the last few years are--banks and their aggressive managers, "shadow banks" and their even more aggressive managers, hedge funds, credit default swaps, mortgage brokers, the ratings agencies, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the Fed's monetary policy, various federal regulators, short sellers, politicians who over-pushed home ownership, a sensationalist media, the American public that overextending itself with excessive borrowing (or that lied in order to get home loans), housing speculators, etc. The list goes on--and on. Okay, so you already know this. The defining aspect of this book, however, is that it asks (and answers) "Who knew?" about the impending financial crisis beforehand. Who knew--before the financial crisis cracked open for everyone to see (and, perhaps, to panic) in the fall of 2008--that a silent crash in the bond market and real estate derivatives market was playing out? Indeed, the good majority of this book addresses events that occurred before Lehman's failure in September of 2008. In describing what led up to the darkest days of the crisis, Lewis does a good job helping the reader to see how the great financial storm developed. All in all, this is an informative book.
Interestingly, in the book's prologue, Salomon Brothers alumnus Lewis explains how, after he wrote Liar's Poker over 20 years ago, he figured he had seen the height of financial folly. However, even he was surprised by the much larger losses suffered in the recent crisis compared to the 1980s, which seem almost like child's play now.
For a taste of The Big Short, Steve Eisman was a blunt-spoken "specialty finance" research analyst at Oppenheimer and Co., originally in the 1990s, and he eventually helped train analyst Meredith Whitney, who most people associate with her string of negative reports on the banking industry, primarily from late 2007. Giving a flavour of his style, Eisman claims that one of the best lines he wrote back in the early 1990s was, "The [XYZ] Financial Corporation is a perfectly hedged financial institution--it loses money in every conceivable interest rate environment." His own wife described him as being "not tactically rude--he's sincerely rude." Vinny Daniel worked as a junior accountant in the 1990s (and eventually worked for Eisman), and he found out how complicated (and risky) Wall Street firms were when he tried to audit them. He was one of the early analysts to notice the high default rates on manufactured home loans, which led to Eisman writing a 1997 report critical of subprime originators. Michael Burry (later Dr. Michael Burry) was, among other things, a bond market researcher in 2004 who studied Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, and who correctly assessed the impact of "teaser rates" and interest rate re-sets on subprime loans. In 2005, Burry wrote to his Scion Capital investors that, "Sometimes markets err big time." How right he would be.
Greg Lippmann was a bond trader for Deutsche Bank, who discussed with Eisman ways to bet against the subprime mortgage market. Before home prices declined, he noted, for example, that people whose homes appreciated 1 - 5% in value were four times more likely to default than those whose homes appreciated over 10%. In other words, home prices didn't need to actually fall for problems to develop. (Of course, home prices fell a lot.) When Lippmann mentioned this to a Deutsche Bank colleague, he was called a Chicken Little. To which, Lippmann retorted, "I'm short your house!" He did this by buying credit default swaps on the BBB-rated tranches (slices) of subprime mortgage bonds. If that's not a mouthful, read further in the book for a description of Goldman Sachs and "synthetic subprime mortgage bond-backed CDOs." Then there's the AIG Financial Products story, told through the story of Gene Park, who worked at AIG, and his volatile boss, Joe Cassano.
Did I say this book is informative? Here's a bit more: Did you know that a pool of mortgages, each with a 615 FICO score, performs very differently (and better) than a pool of mortgages with half of the loans with a 550 FICO score and half with a 680 FICO score (for a 615 average)? If you think about it, the 550/680 pool is apt to perform significantly worse, because more of the 550 FICO score loans develop problems. Think about how that got gamed.
There's more, but hopefully you've gotten the point. This is a very interesting, entertaining and informative book that accomplishes what it sets out to do. Chances are you'll enjoy it.
Michael Lewis was on the inside. He knows what he talking about and lets us, the little people know. Greatest Trade Ever Behind the Scenes is also recommended. I might even buy this one. It is that good. It should be available from your friendly local library. If not pester them to get it for you.
The Black Book of Communism by Stephane Courtois
This is the butcher's bill of the Bolsheviks and their successors. They killed, tortured, raped, robbed and destroyed in Russia, China, Cambodia, Cuba, South America, Africa, Eastern Europe and anywhere else they gained an entrée. Is this a case of a truth too big to see or will not see? Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself. The Wiki decided that that they couldn't pretend that he didn't write this book so they state a bare minimum.
British Agent by Bruce Lockhart
Then I discovered that the book had a remarkable effect on those who knew nothing of Lockhart and cared less. It had two great qualities, they said---honesty and vivid actuality. And it had a third---the direct revelation of the personality of a most unusual character. These things I believe to be strictly true. And, in addition, the book deals, in the main, with one of the really terrific crises in the world's history. Or, rather, with a series of them. Again and again, as one reads Lockhart's book, one feels that had a chair been moved, a voice coughed, a man looked in a mirror the whole future of the world would have changed its shape. But perhaps not. I myself find it very difficult to look back now on the sequence of events after August 4th, 1914, and not believe in an undercurrent of destiny---and the end is certainly not yet. The second half of Lockhart's book is surely one of the most thrilling things in all the war records. You feel that he exaggerates nothing, sentimentalizes over nothing, is not shocked, nor disgusted, nor frightened, nor exultant.........
His swift, unexcited pen-pictures of all the figures that crowded that odd stage are surely very remarkable. Peters, for instance, by now a quite legendary figure, or Lenin advancing to the front of a platform at a revolutionary meeting, the Englishmen, Buchanan, Cromie, Knox, Hicks, and the others. And his own personal courage and common sense is everywhere present, reminding me here of the humorous insouciance of Yeats-Brown in Bengal Lancer and Golden Horn.
He was there during the Bolshevik Revolution. He knew the people making things happen. He wrote well. He wrote for real and it is all on line.
By Way of Deception
The Other Side of Deception: A Rogue Agent Exposes the Mossad's Secret Agenda by Victor Ostrovsky
Victor Ostrovsky was a lieutenant colonel in Mossad, the Israeli foreign intelligence outfit. He writes of what he knows. In fact it is not just an espionage outfit; it carries out sabotage and subversion operations too.
He left because he regarded it as vicious and dangerous mob which was out of control. That is a fair view. They did a false flag operation in Libya. Planting a radio transmitter in Tripoli and sending fraudulent messages to be picked up GCHQ and the NSA was clever. It convinced Ronnie Reagan to bomb Libya and Colonel Qaddafi. It was part of their agenda for taking over the Middle East and oil. So was the American invasion of Iraq. Greater Israel will extend from Barcelona to Delhi which will make it bigger than Gross Deutschland was ever going to be. Read this to realize their potential for evil. Murdering their new boss was another effective move and tells us what kind of men they are.
Camp Of The Saints
Is about Third World immigration flooding civilization. It annoyed various people. It is rather like the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion; it tells the truth or something very like it. The objectors are the same sort of rogue too. M Raspail's book was published in 1973. It is prescient.
Civil War II or http://www.4shared.com/document/ulA6ONDZ/Civil_War_II.html
Thomas Chittum's "Civil War II" is not for the weak minded or squeamish. Chittum, a retired special forces veteran and freedom fighter, paints a horrifying, but probable future for the United States as a nation state.
Chittum starts out by asking the reader to figure out which "tier" you belong to in the new order. If you are a member of the white working class you will immediately understand what Chittum means. The "International Bureaucratic Elite" are the ones destroying America and creating an empire for their own purposes, power and greed. To do this the white working class must be degraded to third class citizens. This will be done through "racist affirmative action", political correctness, and outright tyranny. Since whites are the economic and racial backbone of America, they must go.
Chittum further relates how illegal immigration, racial politics, and cowardly and devious politicians , are exploiting the ethnic tensions already present from "multiculturalism" The Mexican "reconquista" of the American Southwest is happening at lightning speed and within 20 years whites will no longer be the majority in those states. A revolution in Mexico is predicted within 15-20 years which will be a spark for a "Aztlan republic" and outright secession. Along with this will come a brutal race war between whites and blacks in the America south.
Chittum draws a map of new America showing the probable breakdown of the new ethnic nations: the Northwest and Midwest a white European nation, the South a black one, and the Southwest Hispanic. He also describes how black and Hispanic street gangs( the Gangster Disciples of Chicago 50,000 strong) will be the new ethnic militias along with white militias forming for self defence. He recommends white Americans, when the time comes, form Committees of Correspondence with other white communities for self-defence and cooperation. He also advises any whites living in the South or Southwest to get their affairs in order and move out the Northwest before the shooting starts.
If this books sounds pessimistic, it is. It is also a warning to America and the International Elite who are creating the conditions for this race war: affirmative action, racial politics, blatant discrimination against the majority whites, destruction of the white working class, gun control, and the feudalisation of society through ethnic "tiering" and annihilation of the Bill of Rights. Chittum predicts this to begin about 2020 or so. He believes ethnic riots in Los Angeles or a city with a large black population during the summer will be the spark. The USA will degenerate into anarchy shortly after this as the Federal government seeks to regain order. Not a pretty picture. This book is a warning, so prepare yourself. Part of the answer is working out who is doing this to us.
PS: A companion volume is Ethnic Cleansing Operations. It was written by an American general officer; it is not for the squeamish.
Cultural Revolution, Culture War by Sean Gabb
My summer reading has included Cultural Revolution, Culture War by Sean Gabb. It is an updated and considerably extended outgrowth of an earlier work by the same author. Its subtitle "How Conservatives Lost England, and How to Get it Back" tells the story. Sean Gabb's case is that England has been taken over by a new ruling class, one that it totalitarian in its ambitions, in that it seeks to direct our thinking in every aspect of our culture. Not content with political power – indeed, its influence is more powerful and pervasive than that of government, it wants to mould our behaviour and even our thought to its own norms.
He cites numerous examples at the outset of cases in which the ordinary thought and activities of ordinary people have been criminalized and subject to police harassment – indeed, the daily papers are a fertile source of such material because it seems to happen almost daily. One by one the major cultural arenas have been occupied, ranging from the BBC to the arts, politics and literature. Dissent is not tolerated; it is criminalized or marginalized. The prevailing views (EU good, business bad, climate change entirely man-made) are pushed forth relentlessly.
What can be done? That's the "How to get it back" part. Sean Gabb suggests that a major assault rather than a gradual re-occupation of the territory could work, but he is politic enough to suggest that the ground must be prepared by having libertarians seek allies where they can. They must make common cause, where such exists, with traditional conservatives. But this does not apply to the Conservative Party. This can no longer oppose the nostrums of the ruling class, he says, because it has co-opted itself to their ranks.
As you gather, this is stirring stuff. It is very well written and puts its case cogently. You should make it your holiday reading, and come back with renewed determination to change things.
Madsen Pirie explains. Sean is right. We have been betrayed by the ruling class. It is Antonio Gramsci's followers and Lenin's Useful Idiots who are doing it to us.
The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization
Patrick J. Buchanan's contentious premise in The Death of the West is that the United States is no longer a healthy melting pot, but instead a confused, tottering "conglomeration of peoples with almost nothing in common." Relying on United Nations population statistics, and citing such diverse sources as Yogi Berra and Rhett Butler, Buchanan sees for America four "clear and present dangers": declining birth rates; uncontrolled immigration of peoples of "different colours, creed, and cultures"; a rise of "anti-Western" culture antithetical to established religious, cultural, and moral norms; and a "defection of ruling elites" to the idea of world government. His solutions include higher wages and tax breaks for parents than for singles, a dramatic rollback of immigration quotas, and a National History Bee. Buchanan's volatile, adamant book eschews any middle ground. Readers will either applaud his ideas or be repulsed by them.
From Publishers Weekly
"Historians may one day call `the pill' the suicide tablet of the West," writes former presidential candidate Buchanan in this cri de coeur regarding the perils that await Western civilization. And he is correct in his assessment that the advent of artificial contraception brought about huge changes in the ways American and European cultures dealt with sex, children and family. Buchanan, a staunch Roman Catholic and a conservative, feels that these changes were socially and politically disastrous. Worried about the declining birth rate of European-Americans and increased immigration from non-white countries, Buchanan predicts that people who are now celebrating diversity "will spend their golden years in a Third World America." Along with shifting racial demographics, Buchanan also frets about the changes in morality "rampant promiscuity and wholesale divorce and tax-payer funding of abortion." Buchanan is equally upfront about his position on homosexuality: "had the killers of Matthew Shepard chosen a sixteen-year-old girl rather than a twenty-one-year-old gay man, her rape-murder would have been to me an even greater evil." Fearful that American is being "de-Christianized," Buchanan argues that "while the prognosis is not good," America must re-evaluate itself and reclaim its white, Christian origins; despite the current "coarseness of her manners, the decadence of her culture, or the sickness in her soul," the nation is worth saving. Buchanan's passionately expressed ideology will be too extreme for most readers, and its proud bigotry is unlikely to play well even among most conservatives.
The sub-title tells us the theme of the book. Mr. Buchanan is not just any politician. His views are soundly based. You do not have to agree with him but if not you should have clear reasons for your views. Both of these reviewers say that he is an extremist. He doesn't sound that way to me.
Do As I Say (Not As I Do)
Members of the liberal left exude an air of moral certitude. They pride themselves on being selflessly committed to the highest ideals and seem particularly confident of the purity of their motives and the evil nature of their opponents..... But do they actually live by these beliefs? [ Hint: - No way - Editor ].......advocate.
Michael Moore denounces oil and defence contractors as war profiteers. He....... owns shares in Halliburton, Boeing, and Honeywell and does his postproduction film work in Canada to avoid paying union wages in the United States. Noam Chomsky opposes the very concept of private property and calls the Pentagon “the worst institution in human history,” yet he and his wife have made millions of dollars in contract work for the Department of Defence....... Streisand prides herself as an environmental activist, yet she owns shares in a notorious strip-mining company. Hillary Clinton supports the right of thirteen-year-old girls to have abortions without parental consent, yet she forbade thirteen-year-old Chelsea to pierce her ears and enrolled her in a school that would not distribute condoms to minors. Nancy Pelosi received the 2002 Cesar Chavez Award from the United Farm Workers, yet she and her husband own a Napa Valley vineyard that uses non-union labour.
Schweizer’s conclusion is simple: liberalism in the end forces its adherents to become hypocrites. They adopt one pose in public, but when it comes to what matters most in their own lives—their property, their privacy, and their children—they jettison their liberal principles and embrace conservative ones. Schweizer thus exposes the contradiction at the core of liberalism: if these ideas don’t work for the very individuals who promote them, how can they work for the rest of us?
What can I add to that? I never trusted Clinton, a foul mouthed slut, fornicating with Vince Foster until he was murdered - see Fort Marcy Massacre for more on that. The rest are scum on the make. Now you too can Take the "Name The Liberal Hypocrite" Quiz
The Economic Consequences of the Peace
The Economic Consequences of the Peace (1919) is a book published by John Maynard Keynes. Keynes attended the Versailles Conference as a delegate of the British Treasury and argued for a much more generous peace. It was a best seller throughout the world and was critical in establishing a general opinion that the Versailles Treaty was a "Carthaginian peace". It helped to consolidate American public opinion against the treaty and involvement in the League of Nations. The perception by much of the British public that Germany had been treated unfairly in turn was a crucial factor in public support for appeasement. The success of the book established Keynes' reputation as a leading economist especially on the left. When Keynes was a key player in establishing the Bretton Woods system in 1944, he remembered the lessons from Versailles as well as the Great Depression. The Marshall Plan after Second World War is a similar system to that proposed by Keynes in The Economic Consequences of the Peace.
Lords of Finance tells us that Keynes' book was highly influential. The settlement after the Second World War was much what he proposed at Versailles.
The Electronic Whorehouse by Paul Sheehan
Mr. Sheehan was the editor of The Sydney Morning Herald and he is like a butcher with his sausages. He knows what goes into the product and it is not a particularly pretty sight. 70% of it comes from public relations outfits so the truth is immediately subordinate to the agenda. He goes through some issues that have received attention and does it very well. John Howard, the Prime Minister of Australia has been accused of lying about the children of illegal immigrants being thrown overboard. The fact is that throwing them into the sea is a standard tactic. It triggers a legal obligation in the Australian navy to rescue. Boats are then sabotaged so that they cannot be sent back to Indonesia. Passports are thrown overboard too. This is destruction of evidence. The press does not say much about these things because of the agenda. He gives references to the Parliamentary Report and many other sources. It is checkable. He also goes over the ground in l'affaire Windschuttle and gives a good account; one that will not please Marxist historians. A good read from a forceful writer.
Britannica is famous, respected, authoritative and unbiased, isn't it? Not quite. It was taken over by Julius Rosenberg, a Jew in 1920 and has never been straight since. Looking honest is one thing. Being honest is different.
Espionage: The Mitrokhin Archive II by Christopher Andrew and Vasili Mitrokhin
After the death of Stalin, with the Soviet empire secured as far west as the Oder and Danube, the Soviet Union’s apparently formidable secret police and intelligence service became committed to realising Lenin’s dream of global revolution — rallying the comrades, in the words of the Internationale, for the “last fight to unite the human race”. This long-awaited second tranche from the 2,000-folio KGB archive smuggled out of Russia by its archivist Vasili Mitrokhin reveals a classic case of hubris and nemesis.
Having denounced Stalin’s Cult of Personality at the 20th party congress in 1956, Khrushchev also disposed of his policy of “socialism in one country”. He announced instead that “the new period in world history that Lenin predicted has arrived, and the peoples of the East are playing an active part in deciding the destinies of the whole world — are becoming a new mighty factor in international relations”. So credulous were the supposed hard men of the Kremlin that for a quarter of a century they believed the Third World was the arena in which they could win the cold war. This illuminating book, co-authored by Christopher Andrew, our leading authority on the secret machinations of the Evil Empire, is the measure of their progressive disillusionment.
Andrew pays tribute to the courage of Mitrokhin, who died here last year aged 82, in secure exile. He reminds us that had the KGB learnt that their plots were being betrayed to the West by one of their own most trusted officers, “the odds are that after a secret trial Mitrokhin would have ended up in the execution cellar with a bullet in the back of the head”.
Of those peoples of the East envisaged by Khrushchev as the storm troops of the final phase of world revolution, none were so assiduously courted by his intelligence service as the Indians. Among revelations that have already made sensational headlines in the Indian press is the disclosure that Indira Gandhi — code-named “Vano” — was fed details of bogus CIA conspiracies, as well as forged documents that purported to show that Pakistan was behind the growth of Sikh separatism. The KGB claimed that Afghan refugees had been contracted to murder her. However, as Andrew says, Gandhi “tragically underestimated the threat posed by her own Sikh bodyguard” — and the invasion of the Golden Temple of Amritsar signed her death warrant.
If the head of the KGB’s counterintelligence, Oleg Kalugin, regarded India as a “model of infiltration of a Third World government”, it was to the West, four years after the 20th-congress speech, that his mercurial leader Khrushchev turned to establish a “bridgehead” against the “main adversary”, the United States. The famous bear-hug exchanged at the United Nations in 1960 with the charismatic “maximum leader” of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro, was intended principally as a rapier thrust at the Americans on their own turf. Actually, at first the Russians were sceptical of Castro’s Marxist commitment and Khrushchev accused him of “adventurism”. Nevertheless, Khrushchev’s brinkmanship carried the relationship onward, to the verge of Armageddon, in the missile crisis of 1962.
As Andrew points out, the Americans’ dirty tricks on the Latin American front did give the KGB a string of first-class propaganda coups, from the Bay of Pigs to the Iran-Contra affair. In fact, he calls Reagan’s campaign against the Sandinistas “a public relations disaster on a global scale”. Elsewhere, America became paired in Mexican eyes with Pinochet’s Chile as the two “most unappealing countries” after KGB black propaganda put it about that Mexican children were routinely being kidnapped, spirited across the American border and murdered for their vital organs.
Pinochet’s predecessor Salvador Allende was given the code name Leader by Moscow Control — an inappropriate choice as his total incompetence soon raised doubts about his survival prospects. This idol of the left, with a penchant for good wines and sexual voyeurism, ignored repeated warnings from the KGB to suppress the rising tide of disaffection in his army’s ranks. After the inevitable CIA- inspired coup of 1973, the Kremlin was left with a single champion in the New World, Castro, who continued to hurl defiance — and take its economic aid.
The other promising area for undermining western influence was in the Middle East — yet it would ultimately prove the graveyard of the Soviet empire. Russian intelligence was already aware of the threat from militant Islam signalled by the Iranian revolution, but it was Yuri Andropov’s KGB that fanned the flames, advising Brezhnev to intervene in Afghanistan. As part of their global propaganda campaign they also put out a story that Jimmy Carter’s security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, had developed an “Islamic Kriegspiel against the Soviet Union, to create an Islamic ‘bomb’ in Central Asia”. The “bomb” exploded under them in Chechnya, with consequences that are still reverberating.
As soon as he took power Gorbachev issued a diktat against “the impermissibility of distortions of the factual state of affairs in messages and informational reports sent to the central committee”. It was too late. As Andrew says, the ruinously expensive flow of arms and military hardware to the Third World had fatally undermined the creaking Soviet economy — and “fantastic conspiracy theories reflected the state of disorientation and denial within KGB Centre’s leadership produced by the collapse and global humiliation of the political system of which they were part. The Soviet Union had nothing of importance to offer the Third World save for arms which most of the recipients couldn’t afford to buy and Moscow could no longer afford to subsidise”. It sums up the essence of this important book, which, while it casts a baleful light on a crazed political experiment, still has lessons for our present confused world scene.
PS I have not read this one yet but given the source it has to be good.
The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
by Ilan Pappé is an uncompromising title from an uncompromising Jew.
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. In his latest work, renowned Israeli author and academic Pappé (A History of Modern Palestine) does not mince words, doing Jimmy Carter one better (or worse, depending on one's point of view) by accusing Israel of ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity beginning in the 1948 war for independence, and continuing through the present. Focusing primarily on Plan D.....
Since the Holocaust, it has been almost impossible to hide large-scale crimes against humanity. In our communicative world, few modern catastrophes are concealed from the public eye. And yet, Ilan Pappé unveils, one such crime has been erased from the global public memory: the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in 1948. But why is it denied, and by whom? The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine offers an investigation of this mystery.
Who did the cover up? Who owns or controls the media? Who made it illegal to deny that a holocaust if it happened to Jews under the Nazis? Who profited enormously from that Holocaust Industry? The answer is the same each time and now they are doing it in Palestine, the Stolen Land called Israel.
Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Charles MacKay
Why do otherwise intelligent individuals form seething masses of idiocy when they engage in collective action? Why do financially sensible people jump lemming-like into hare-brained speculative frenzies--only to jump broker-like out of windows when their fantasies dissolve? We may think that the Great Crash of 1929, junk bonds of the '80s, and over-valued high-tech stocks of the '90s are peculiarly 20th century aberrations, but Mackay's classic--first published in 1841--shows that the madness and confusion of crowds knows no limits, and has no temporal bounds. These are extraordinarily illuminating, and, unfortunately, entertaining tales of chicanery, greed and naiveté. Essential reading for any student of human nature or the transmission of ideas....
Mob psychology matters to manipulators, the sort that run the main stream media for example.
The Fabrication of Aboriginal History by Keith Windschuttle
I tend to assume that going to a university means access to the teachers who know their subjects and are going to tell the truth about them. Perhaps history is different because it is ultimately political. George Orwell said something like: He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future. The early settlement of Tasmania may well be a case in point. It has definitely excited controversy. Settling involved dealing with the original inhabitants, the Abos. Aboriginal comes from the same root as original. University courses tell the sad story of how they were dealt with. Murder them but rape them first and eat them after was the answer. Because lecturers and researchers said this it had to be true of course. Keith Windschuttle was not so sure and went to the original documentation. There was not a lot of it and none was written by Abos but in the nature of things it had some relationship to the truth. There were no recipes for Aboburger or black sausage for example but there were reports of attacks on farms and follow ups with casualty figures. This picture was very different. Our Marxist historians were not amused when it all came to light, saying so very loudly and very publicly but never quite seem to have sued Mr. Windschuttle for libel; an interesting omission. Presuming that universities are honest is the obvious approach. In Australia it is more complicated. If lecturers can get away with it they influence large numbers of people who will be important in later life, lawyers and politicians for example. They are a prime Marxist target. That is why it is done. You might care to do a Google search on Windschuttle to find a lively and passionate correspondence in the newspapers.
Fatal Embrace by Benjamin Ginsburg
Dr. Ginsburg's thesis is that Jews make themselves influential by being useful to the rulers. They then abuse their influence and it all ends in tears. His book is aimed at Jews, warning them not to try it on again. He is writing to people who were thrown out of Egypt, England and literally dozens of other countries. See Jewish Expulsions. He is writing at a time of huge Jewish influence. Look at the men who surround George Bush. Some of them were in the Clinton entourage too. Ask why America invaded Iran, or was it Iraq. It is more than just a spelling mistake. He is a Jew writing for his own but he has something to say that matters to all of us. For another review see Deadly Enemy, Deadly Friend.
From the Gulag to the Killing Fields - Personal Accounts of Political Violence and Repression in Communist States
An excellent companion to The Black Book of Communism,
But unlike the Black Book, which derives most of its information from recently accessible Soviet archives and other sources, this emotionally charged tome relies on the accounts of victims themselves, which makes it even more damning in my view. This book should convince many that Communism in practice is every bit as murderous as its rival totalitarian ideology Fascism, which is considered the epitome of political evil..........
The book opens with..... an absolutely brilliant 64-page introductory essay by Editor Paul Hollander.......... He hits the nail on the head again and again. He rightly tells us that while the mass murders of Hitler's National Socialists have stimulated a huge and continued outpouring of righteous indignation and hand wringing, the similar mass murders of Communist rulers such as Josef Stalin and Pol Pot have inspired little corresponding concern. Indeed, it seems that history's most prolific killer, Chinese Red Emperor Mao Tse-tung, has a better reputation amongst the cultural elites than does Ronald Reagan. And Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Castro's ruthless henchman who authorized hundreds of executions at La Cabana prison and sometimes participated in the killings himself, has become a pop culture phenomenon. T-shirts emblazoned with his "romantic" image are available in trendy shops at your local shopping mall. Could you imagine a t-shirt featuring General Pinochet's likeness being sold anywhere?
University humanities departments are little enclaves of communist subversives who believe what the they want and the truth be damned. They market illegal immigration and feminism to this very day. These causes are part of the same evil described here. Create the problem then produce a solution in order to grab power. Curiously this was written by a Jew, one Anne Appelbaum although she is not that forthcoming on the point unless it suits her purpose. Pushing a Jewish version of the truth is a major industry for them. It is why they have infiltrated the media.
Guilt by Association - How Deception and Self-Deceit Took America to War
A stunning look at the entrenched corruption of the American political system, which has enabled a secretive "Israel First" alliance to take control of US political life. Through the media, in academic life, in popular culture and in politics, this treasonous group has taken control of US foreign policy, and has been able to deceive the public into waging war for the Zionist state.
Mr. Gates covers a lot of ground known to those who know that Zionism is evil. It is none the worse for that. Everyone should know. People in Gaza really do know. They feel too. They are victims of Zion. So is anyone who pays tax in the West. We are being impoverished by the same vicious rogues. Interestingly, given Mr. Gates official positions and status there is no Wiki write up for him. This does not prove conspiracy but when these things keep happening it has to be part of the Main Stream Media system of control - censoring truth, pushing the Holocaust® story; it is all part of the fun.
The Heretic's New Book
In 2001, Danish political scientist Bjørn Lomborg published to great controversy The Skeptical Environmentalist, in which he examined whether proposed solutions to environmental damage could actually be worse than the damage itself. The book served as both an earnest appeal to save the environment and a bracing rejection of the rhetorical excesses and some of the dire prognostications of the environmental movement.
Professor Lomborg has annoyed politicians and men in the science industry. The pursuit of truth can do that.
This might well amuse you and even confirm your worst suspicions about the modern day incarnation of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Hostage to History: Cyprus from the Ottomans to Kissinger
by Christopher Hitchens
An updated survey of the partition of Cyprus. In a compelling study of great-power misconduct, Christopher Hitchens examines the events leading up to the partition of Cyprus and its legacy. He argues that the intervention of four major foreign powers, Turkey, Greece, Britain and the United States, turned a local dispute into a major disaster. In a new afterword, Hitchens reviews the implications of the Republic of Cyprus's applications for European union membership, the escalating regional arms race between Greece and Turkey, and last year's Greek Cypriot protests along the partition border.
Mr. Hitchens, a Jew with an agenda tells us that the Greeks should have Cyprus. The high probability, that they would then proceed to murder all Turks on the island is treated as a matter of indifference. We are informed on page 31 that Theodor Herzl tried to convince His Majesty's Government to let the Jews have it as a homeland. The rights of the locals were, naturally a matter of deep seated indifference. They proved that by murdering thousands when they stole Palestine. The product description aka the blurb should be regarded as waffle.
The Invisible Enemy by Edward Abboud
The title tells all. Mr. Abboud writes about the war that we are losing because we do not even know that it is happening, far less who the enemy is. As in any war, truth is the first casualty. This time lies are the main weapon. Conventional wars are noisy, dangerous, expensive and obvious. Even modern guerrilla wars are obvious. The enemy carries out the attack in his own time but the results of an ambush or an explosion are conspicuous. A war of subversion is different. Infiltrate and take over every important organization and you will eventually control everything. Newspapers, books, film, radio, political parties, the legal profession, business, religion, education all of these things are being brought under control. It is a battle for hearts and minds. At first it was not polite to talk about our attackers. Now it is becoming illegal. Read for yourself. Mr. Abboud makes a case and gives the facts. Read for yourself. Think for yourself. Decide for yourself. Find one of the guilty at Antonio Gramsci
Iron Curtain Over America
Tells us about Jewish infiltration and manipulation.
The Jews By Hillaire Belloc
Mr. Belloc was a profoundly decent man and important writer. People tend to think this book is anti-Semitic. It is not. Reviewers on the Amazon.com web site give him praise and a very clean bill of health.
Jews Selling Blacks
A genocidal legacy of human trafficking uncovered New book delivers massive pictorial evidence of Jewish involvement in the slave trade and its aftermath
(FinalCall.com) – There is no longer any debate. It has been conclusively shown that the Jewish people held a key role in the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the development of an Apartheid society in the United States of America.
Different from the heavily footnoted previous publications “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” Volumes One and Two, the Historical Research Department of the Nation of Islam has released 144 pages containing 283 Jewish slave sale ads reproduced from American newspapers across the country. “Jews Selling Blacks” displays posted bills, classified ads and flyers showing that Jews bought and sold whole plantations and marketed slaves ranging in age from infants to the elderly. Additionally, Jewish merchants arranged bank financing and various other payment options which in essence amounted to lay-away terms for their human cargo and subsequently enslaved labour force.
The truth is what it is. Jews don't like but then as Martin Luther told us in The Jews And Their Lies that they are master liars. That was then. This is now. Nothing has changed.
The Last Days of the Romanovs by Robert Wilton
Mr. Wilton was a reporter for The Times, one of the world's oldest newspapers and in Russia at the time of the Revolution. He also took part in the investigation of the murder of the Tsar and his family at Yekaterinburg. His book gives the membership of various important Bolshevik committees and the their nationalities. In Russia one might expect them to be predominantly Russian. In fact they were largely Jewish. Being a political activist is not necessarily being evil but the Bolsheviks and their successors succeeded in killing between 85 and 100 million people worldwide. They made the Nazi efforts look quite modest. More and better details are in The Black Book of Communism. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn confirms Mr. Wilton's case. Spartacus School Net, a left wing source gives us a hostile review. The Wikipedia gives us nothing. It censored him.
Legions of Death by Rupert Butler
Tells us about the Jews who tortured Rudolf Höß, a one time commandant of Auschwitz.
The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness.
It is fair to say that Doctor Rossiter is not beating about the bush in his title. He is a psychologist which is not necessarily a recommendation but when a man talks self-evident sense I am happy to believe him especially if he is putting a view I sympathise with. As a psychologist he might say I believe because I want to believe. It is a valid point. Given the reality of Liberal movements [ English readers should read that as left wing or socialist ] with a track record of mass murder and economic disaster you might wonder whether the perpetrators are mad, vicious, stupid or some combination. The good doctor puts the case for lunacy. He gets good reviews at Amazon which suggest he is on the right lines. The hostile ones are worth a look too. They show that he has touched a nerve with the guilty.
Lions, Donkeys and Dinosaurs
The past blunders which he highlights - for which no one has been forced to accept the blame, so opaque is the accountability of both armed services and the MoD - are history. What matters more are his pointers for the future. It is all here. Lewis Page details the ridiculous excess of senior officers for our shrinking services (over 40 major-generals for just two army divisions, 46 Royal Navy admirals and 88 commodores, 340 RAF group-captains and 40 air marshals). He describes the fantastic procurement blunders. There was the decision that Britain should build its own Apache helicopters, at a cost of £40 million apiece, while the Israelis bought theirs off the shelf from the Americans for £12 million. There are the scandals of the Merlin anti-submarine helicopter and the SA80 rifle, and the fact that the RAF possesses 150 uniformed men per deployable aircraft, more than double the ratio of the Israeli air force.
Defence procurement has a track record of gross incompetence and that is the kindest thing that can be said for it. Look at the diaries of a major general in his last eighteen months, the contracts he signs and the well paid job that he gets when he leaves. Then wonder about corruption.
Living by the Sword by Stephen Green
Mr. Green gives some recent history of the Middle East and in particular Palestine. He also tells us about the enormous influence of Jews in America. This had practical effects. It meant that when the version of the F4 Phantom which was especially fitted to carry nuclear weapons left the factory it went to the Jewish air force. The USAF came second. The Americans supplied cluster bombs to the Jews on the strict condition that they were to be used against military, not civilian targets. The Jewish air force used them when was it doing area bombing against civilians in Beirut. At least one American died as a direct result. He also tells about the Shatila Massacre and how it was set up by Ariel Sharon. One might wonder why Jews are hated. Read this book and find out why.
Mind wars - Brain research, nanotech, and the military
Oh, how I wish that reviewing a book like this were simple and straightforward! That would mean we live in a world of transparency, government accountability to citizens, easy access to sources, primary sources willing to go on the record, and data trails that lead readers to those same sources so everyone can see for themselves..... Mind Wars: Brain Research and National Defence by Jonathan D. Moreno is a broad but necessarily incomplete overview of neuroscience, nanotechnology and related areas applied to the arts of war, with an examination of ethical issues raised by this work, all considered in a historical context by a scholar who has researched the field.
I can add a little to the review. It is a matter of fact that thousands of men in the British Army do Resistance to Interrogation. Part of it is an exercise for our interrogators to practice. It is all solidly based on psychology and real life experience. There is something on that at Oath Betrayed: Torture, Medical Complicity, and the War on Terror
PS The Amazon review is shorter and even less cheering.
NHS Plc - The Privatisation of Our Health
The National Health Service used to plan and fund to meet patient needs, providing free and fair access for all. But in this superb book, Allyson Pollock shows how Labour is destroying this great working class achievement.
Labour pushes the IMF, World Bank, European Union agenda of opening up all public services - water, energy, sewerage, telecoms, post and health - to private firms. So health care is becoming a commodity as in the USA, where billing and marketing make up 30% of health care costs. In the USA, fraud by health care companies totalled $418 billion in 1990-95. For example, Columbia/HCA (allegedly helped by the British consultancy firm KPMG) defrauded the government of $1.7 billion.
In 2004, Labour lifted the ceiling on health administration costs, which had already doubled, cutting clinical care budgets so that there are fewer beds in PFI hospitals. Labour excludes doctors, nurses and health professionals from hospital management, while welcoming failed businessmen.
performed in private hospitals costs 40%
more than in NHS hospitals, because of higher costs and the overriding
need to return a profit to the shareholders. Private borrowing is
dearer too and the risks are not transferred to the private sector.
Labour has arranged public spending data and NHS accounts to hide the
huge amounts of public money going straight through the NHS to private
The Labour Party is the party of the people, isn't it? Not these days it isn't. It is run by light fingered rogues on the make, communist subversives who are controlled by Jews and other undesirables. See also The New NHS: A Guide: A Guide to Its Funding, Organisation and Accountability by Allyson M. Pollock and Alison Talbot-Smith.
The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade
The idea that the CIA should be a major drug runner is fantastic but Alfred McCoy takes us over the ground, telling us what happened and why. Using the hill tribes of the Laos area against the Chinese meant paying them which translates into moving their crops for them. Rice and opium are the options and poppy is much more profitable. How do intelligence outfits operate in foreign lands? They work with other covert outfits which means the crime industry. This can become too much of a two way passage. The Mafia's pay off for help in Sicily in 1944-5 was freedom to operate and move contraband. Is it different today? Believe it if you want. They were working with hooligans in Afghanistan. Now they are trying to subvert Iran. That means liaising with bandits.
The Power of Israel in the United States by James Petras
This book is a chapter-by-chapter analysis documenting the power of Israel via the pro-Zionist lobby on US Middle East policy. It explores the extraordinary extent of US political, economic, military and diplomatic support for Israel along with the means whereby such support is generated and consolidated. Contending that Zionist power in the US ensured unconditional backing for Israeli colonization of Palestine and its massive uprooting of Palestinians, it views the interests of Israel rather than those of Big Oil as the primary cause of the disastrous US wars against Iraq and threats of war against Iran and Syria.
Professor Petras confirms that Professors Mearsheimer & Walt were right when they wrote the Israel Lobby
A Question of Torture: CIA Interrogation, from the Cold War to the War on Terror
by Alfred McCoy
From The New Yorker
From the start of the Cold War to the early nineteen-sixties, the C.I.A. spent billions of dollars developing psychological tools for interrogation. The agency cast a wide net, funding a Canadian study that involved administering electric shocks to subjects in drug-induced comas, and recruiting people like Kurt Plotner, a Nazi scientist who, in his search for a truth serum, had tested mescaline on Jewish prisoners at Dachau. The eventual conclusion was that cheap, simple methods (for example, enforced standing) worked best, and were also more acceptable to the public than outright physical violence. McCoy skilfully traces the use of these methods from the Phoenix program in Vietnam—which was designed to ferret out high-level Vietcong, although of the more than twenty thousand people it killed most were civilians—to the actions of agency-trained secret police in Honduras in the nineteen-eighties, and the treatment of hooded detainees at Abu Ghraib.
Professor McCoy was writing about criminal operations of the CIA before Abu Ghraib came to light. He is a competent historian and I believe him.
Red Mafiya : How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America
The title of the book is slightly misleading. Reading it shows that the men leaving Russia were largely Jewish criminals but then the author as also a Jew. Men who had been through the Gulags were rough and tough. They could sneer at the FBI and their namby pamby approach to evil.
Red Rubber - The Story of the Rubber Slave Trade Flourishing on the Congo on the Year of Grace 1906
This book exposes the colonial injustice that took place in the Congo Free State (currently called the Democratic Republic of Congo) under the leadership of the Belgian King, King Leopold II. I strongly recommend this book to anybody interested in the history of Africa.
This book can be used to fuel Western Guilt rather than just Belgian guilt.
The Secret World Government
Is a view from a Russian general who fought the Bolsheviks in 1917.
The Second World War by Sir Winston Churchill
Churchill got a Nobel prize for his book but seems not to have noticed Holocaust®, the greatest crime ever. At all events he does not mention. The Jews never mention this detail.
The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America
James Bamford exposed the existence of the top-secret National Security Agency in the bestselling The Puzzle Palace and continued to probe into its workings in his follow-up bestseller, Body of Secrets. Now Bamford discloses inside, often shocking information about the transformation of the NSA in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 2001.
In THE SHADOW FACTORY, Bamford shows how the NSA’s failure to detect the presence of two of the 9/11 hijackers inside the United States led the NSA to abandon its long-held policy of spying only on enemies outside the country. Instead, after 9/11 it turned its almost limitless ability to listen in on friend and foe alike over to the Bush Administration to use as a weapon in the war on terror. With unrivalled access to sources and documents, Bamford details how the agency has conducted domestic surveillance without court approval, and he frames it in the context of the NSA’s ongoing hunt for information about today’s elusive enemies.
THE SHADOW FACTORY is a riveting read for anyone concerned about civil liberties and America’s security in the post-9/11 world.
Mr. Bamford writes well and knows of what he writes. I will be getting a copy. He got written up by Haaretz. They object to him telling the truth about them. See Is Israel's booming high-tech industry a branch of the Mossad? [ Hint - Yes ]
Professor Lomborg was a statistician at Aarhus University in Denmark and a man with rock solid credentials as a greenie. He came across a critique of environmentalist positions and gave it to his students to refute. They failed to his surprise and being an honest man who could not either, wrote a book which uses government statistics to give the lie to various people whose agendas come ahead of the truth. More people have access to good drinking water, not fewer. The number of starving is down too, according to the people who go there and see what is happening. He is very unpopular with the management of the WWF [ World Wildlife Fund for Nature ]. He says in some detail that they are liars. They could sue for libel but seem to have decided not to. Oil is not going to run out any time soon. He tells us why not. The numbers are out there. His position on global warming is that the case is unproven. The Scientific American is a well known magazine which devoted eleven pages in one edition to abusing him but stopped just short of saying that he was wrong. You might wonder why they were annoyed.
Solzhenitsyn breaks last taboo of the revolution Nobel laureate under fire for new book on the role of Jews in Soviet-era repression [ 25 January 2003 ]
Jews hate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. It is that simple. He told the truth about them and he will never be forgiven. He will never shut up either. He has been there and seen what the KGB could do. They did it to him and didn't break him. The fact they were often Jews is something never to forget. It won't stop them trying to hide this though. That is why they control the media; to suppress the truth. The Wikipedia article on the man tells about the book, fails to give a source but makes claims about his views on Jews which might or might not be accurate. The Wiki is a Zionist propaganda operation.
Stalin's Willing Executioners
Professor MacDonald tells us more about the ugly reality of the Jews taking over in Russia. The butcher's bill ran to millions and leaves scope for thinking that Adolf had a point.
State of Fear by Michael Crichton
Is a blood and thunder novel which came my way by chance. It has more than sex, lust and violence though. There is a long, hard look at global warming and the environmental campaigning racket. Save the Muesli sounds fairly harmless if misguided but it part of a major industry which generates a multimegabuck income for its management. There is a hard sell behind the soft, warm image.
Very few people have the scientific background to understand the physics and geology of our environment. The minority who do and it is much less than 1% of us are liable to be involved directly. It turns out that they have life styles and mortgages too. They need the money that goes into research; it is another industry just like environmental campaigning.
Doctor [ of medicine ] Crichton slips the message about very dodgy science and high pressure sales campaigns in under the radar but he has been over the ground. When a man gives sources for his assertions his stuff is checkable. When the accused say nothing and do not sue for libel it is evidence for the prosecution. To be fair he fingers big business as well as government operations and greenies.
He tells us how governments manipulate us using fear, whence the State of Fear which is the book's title. See it at page 536 on. It is a good read with real reality behind it.
PS Bjorn Lomborg deals with statistics and goes over a lot of the same ground in a different way. He has access to the data and understands it. Professor Lomborg wrote The Skeptical Environmentalist and got hated for his pains. The WWF didn't sue for libel. Nor did any of them.
Got written up by the Glasgow University Library and rather well
The Sword and the Shield: The Mitrokhin Archive and the Secret History of the KGB
by Vasili Mitrokhin and Christopher Andrew
Mitrokhin was a front line man in the KGB then moved back to a position of less responsibility. He had total access to their records and was so impressed that he kept notes of various operations. Had he been caught he would have lucky to live. Death might have been preferable to exile in the bleaker parts of Siberia. He got away with it and when the Berlin Wall came down he was able to make contact with the outside world. These are the results and impressively nasty they are. Chris Andrew is an historian who turned the Russian into decent English. This output is the kind of one off that makes it worth reading for the story behind it as well as the stories in it.
Thinking Fast And Slow
Sometimes psychologists come up with something worthwhile. These did. These are Jews. The article does not make the connection with Bruce Schneier, also a Jew whose work on computer security has gone toward why people do the wrong things, in fine applied psychology.
Three Whys of the Russian Revolution by Richard Pipes
Professor Pipes is not just another historian. He is an eminent historian who served on the National Security Council that advised Ronald Regan during the Cold War. There are plenty of thick books which tell us at length about people with unfamiliar names and bury us in detail. Perhaps the truth is in there somewhere. This little book is different. It is a summary of his view of modern Russian history and its context. He says that the Bolshevik Revolution probably caused the rise of the Nazi Party, the Second World War, decolonization and definitely caused the Cold War. These huge events make it worth understanding how and why it happened. He had reason to be interested because he was born in Poland just after the Russian Revolution. He says that it happened because of subversion by radical intellectuals. This is a part of the truth. But you can read for yourself and decide whether you are better informed after. Robert Wilton tells us that most of the subversives were Jews and he was there on the day. So does Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and he is part of Russia. It is interesting to see how many of them are at the centre of subversive movements. Professor Pipes is just one such. See Richard Pipes. His son, one Daniel Pipes is a virulent anti-Semite. The Wiki admits that he is a Jew but does not tell us that he is a propagandist.
The Transparent Cabal
Explains how the Jews running America set up the war on Iraq. Do the guilty deny the truth? No! They just hope people will not notice.
Washout by John Dawson
Various Marxist history teachers were annoyed at having their stories exposed as lies by Keith Windschuttle. They wrote Whitewash as a collective response. Washout tells us clearly and forcefully that they have side stepped the core issues while nit picking and using irrelevancies to cloud their failure. In fact their dishonesty is not just a local affair but is part of worldwide assault on academic standards and an international agenda.
Wasting Police Time: The Crazy World of the War on Crime
PC Copperfield has to keep his true identity secret for fear of disciplinary action. Having read this book I can understand why he wishes to remain anonymous. This book reveals, at last, the true state of policing in the UK today. Written by a serving officer who is frustrated and disillusioned with the weak spineless leadership of government and senior police management. David Copperfield's views represent those of the vast majority of serving police officers at the sharp end of a criminal justice system. A system that is in a state of chaos. This book tells it as it is and I should know as I too am a serving officer. David Copperfield should be applauded for his courage in speaking out. Buy this book and tell your friends. The general public need to know that police officers are as frustrated as they are.
A large part of the problem, probably the bulk of it is corrupt politicians with agendas that have nothing to do with honest policing while letting illegal immigrants and ethnics get away with it.
Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith
Is the book on economics; one more mentioned than read though. It is well explained by PJ O'Rourke. He is perhaps the way to go on this one.
Weird Republic by Thomas Clough
If your mind is controlled by TV and mainstream media steer clear of this book. If, however, you value truth over cheerleading for your political team, then prepare to feast. This collection is an antidote for the poison of corporate media, progressive education and politics as usual. You will recognize the cold hard diamond of truth in these well researched, calmly presented articles. Were this world what it should be, Clough would be revered as a philosopher. But in a world where truth is feared by some, hated by others, no doubt his writings will be limited to those few readers who can break through the web of mind control to think for themselves. Be one of them.
The truth is a weapon. So are lies. Tom's book does not a rate a review from the establishment so we have to make do with this one. If you think that politics in America are corrupt he will confirm it. Sharpton and Jackson are just two of the crooks he fingers. For a sample of his work go to The Rotten Roots of Kwanzaa and the roots are very rotten, or try The Story of Al Sharpton. He tells us about Michael Jackson as well. It isn't pretty.
Winter in Moscow by Malcolm Muggeridge
Malcolm Muggeridge was better known in his latter days as a commentator and television personality. As a much younger man he was a reporter in Moscow when Russia was ruled by Joe Stalin. Mr. Muggeridge went out into the countryside and saw peasants being rounded up by the Red Army to be deported or murdered. When the Manchester Guardian got his report they were so pleased that they suppressed it. This book was never reprinted but your library will have it in its reserve collection. A close up view of practical tyranny and the people who use it for their own advantage. The Wiki is surprisingly honest about this book but it is rather buried in other matters.
Das Kapital by Karl Marx
There are people who say that they have read this book. Rather fewer have actually done so. Far fewer have understood it. Some of those who did were vicious and dangerous hooligans like Lenin. It is worth looking at so that you know just how badly written is was. Then you can wonder why it is taken seriously. If somebody starts in the middle of an argument and proceeds outwards in random directions, clarity will not be achieved. If a man's thinking is that muddled it makes sense to wonder if he understands his arguments any better than the rest of us. It does show how good marketing can overcome dreadful writing. Amazon's reviewers seem to like it. I do not change my judgement as a result.
Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler aka The Little Corporal's Handbook
Mein Kampf is German for my struggle and was written mainly by Rudolf Hess to the dictation of the great dictator. It is clearer than Marx's effort but not worth the effort of looking at more than a few pages unless you have a real interest in the politics of the period. The site is that of an admirer - a fairly unusual qualification in this foul year of Our Lord.
Guns, God and Israel by Jill Hamilton aka the Duchess of Hamilton
This is a new book [ 2004 ] whose thesis is that Palestine was given to the Jews by men of His Majesty's Government because they were ardent Christians who cared deeply about the Bible. Also in gratitude to Chaim Weizmann who developed a process for making acetone on an industrial scale. It was a precursor for TNT, an important explosive during the First World War. The giving was formalised in The Balfour Declaration of 2 November 1917. The link gives context. There are people who feel that it was given to them as a payoff because they brought America into the First World War on our side when we were beaten. This is entirely consistent with her point on page 215 that [ Thomas Jones in his Whitehall Diary ] Jan Smuts is quoted thus:-
We should hold on to Palestine. There is no more subtle influence working in the world, I hope for good, than the influence of that international people ( the Jews ), full of brains and character, and dominating much bigger nations in many parts of the world through the filtration of their ideas and policies.
The Declaration obligates the Jews to treat other peoples in the land decently. This obligation got off to a bad start when the Jews started taking over Palestinians' land. Matters have not improved. This matter is one that she passes over lightly. She tells us that Exodus by Leon Uris and The Diary of Anne Frank were highly successful Jewish propaganda pieces. The latter has been criticised as being a forgery. Buy it from Walmart and save money.
The fifty best and the fifty worst books of the twentieth century
These things are subjective. The worst are more interesting.
The Blairs and Their Court by Francis Beckett and David Henck
Tells us about the tensions between Blair's people and the Royal Family, especially at the time of Princess Diana's death. The Guardian's review tells us about the hatred and manoeuvrings of that time. The feel of the whole thing is reinforced by Andrew Rawnsley in The Servant of the People [ 2000 ]. See Blair and New Labour for some quotes. It will be published by Aurum Press on 14 October 2004.
The Life of an American Jew in Racist Marxist Israel
THE CONTENTS OF THIS BOOK ARE EXPECTED TO BRING A STRONG REACTION FROM THE ZIONIST JEWS.
I am well aware of the tactics of you, my Zionist brethren, use to quiet anyone who attempts to expose any of your subversive acts.
If the person is a Gentile, you cry, "You're anti-semitic" which is nothing more than a smokescreen to hide your actions.
But, if a Jew is the person doing the exposing, you resort to other tactics.
First, you ignore the charges, hoping the information will not be given widespread distribution.
If the information starts reaching too many people, you ridicule the information and the persons giving the information.
If that doesn't work, your next step is character assassination. If the author or speaker hasn't been involved in sufficient scandal you are adept at fabricating scandal against the person or persons.
If none of these are effective, you are known to resort to physical attacks.
But, NEVER do you try to prove the information wrong.
So, before you start your efforts to quiet me, I OFFER THIS CHALLENGE:
You Zionists assemble a number of Zionist Jews and witnesses to support your position; and I will assemble a like number of anti-Zionist, pro-American Jews and witnesses.
Then, the Zionists and the Anti-Zionists will state their position and debate the material in this book as well as related material -- the debate TO BE HELD ON PUBLIC TELEVISION.
Let's explore the information and let the American people decide for themselves if the information is true or
These are on my list of books to be read. Being sneered at by Private Eye is a good sign.
The Cost of War by Jeremy Greenstock
He was our man on the spot. Foreign Office men can be pro-Arab but it is on a basis of long experience, knowledge of the language, the politics and the people Blair is trying to censor this book in England. That fact by itself means that it is worth reading but you may have get it from America.
The senior British diplomat who observed first hand the negotiations in the UN leading up to war-and who shared an office in Iraq with Paul Bremer once the war started-offers a unique insider's perspective and a provocative, challenging view on America's conduct in the war in Iraq
Few public officials outside the inner circle of the U.S. government had a closer view than Sir Jeremy Greenstock of the process that led to war in Iraq, and of the coalition government's struggle to produce a new Iraq after the conflict. As ambassador to the UN during the crucial international negotiations and contentious debates over Resolution 1441 and its abandoned successor, Greenstock saw the manoeuvring and politicking that surrounded the American-led decision to deal militarily with Saddam. He was then appointed to represent the U.K. alongside the governing coalition authority, during which period he witnessed the decisions and analyses that led Iraq into chaos. No one is better placed to offer a balanced, understanding, but where necessary, brutally honest judgement on how successfully the mission to bring peace to the region and earn the trust of the Arab world was pursued.
Greenstock was in the room as many of the most contentious decisions were made that would determine how Iraq was to be rebuilt after the war. He saw first-hand the challenges, pitfalls, and painfully slow progress of reconstruction overseen by Paul Bremer. Written with insight born of the highest level insider access and forthright judgement, this will be the book that defines the story of the venture in Iraq, its rationale, practicality and effect on international relations.
About the Author
Sir Jeremy Greenstock, a career diplomat, is Director of the Ditchley Foundation, the international conference centre in Oxfordshire, U.K. He was previously the U.K. Ambassador to the UN and then Britain's representative in Iraq during the coalition authority period.
History Without Blinders
by Anthony Gregory
The left have done what they have done and never apologized for a thing, not even the 100 million or so murders of the communist regime. The right has pulled some strokes too. Government power is great and wide open to abuse. It has been abused grossly. Mr. Gregory tells us about both sides. He is an equal opportunity abuser. Today's governments tax us at least 50% of our gross income and want more. They are greed driven, dangerous and getting worse.
