on Vital Issues for American Patriots Part 1
It is not true that the legislature has absolute power over our persons and property. The existence of persons and property preceded the existence of the legislature, and its function is only to guarantee their safety. It is not true that the function of law is to regulate our consciences, our ideas, our wills, our education, our opinions, our work, our trade, our talents, our pleasures. The function of law is to protect the free exercise of these rights, and to prevent any person from interfering with the free exercise of these same rights by any other person. Since law necessarily requires the use of force, its proper domain is only in the areas where the use of force is proper—that is, the administration of justice.

This not-for-credit online course follows closely the outline of the full-semester course required of all Hillsdale undergraduates as part of the College's Core Curriculum.
This not-for-credit online course examines American progressivism: its historical roots and principles; its rejection of America’s founding principles and Constitution; its political successes in the New Deal, the Great Society, and in recent years; the ongoing political debate between progressives and conservatives; and the chance of a constitutional revival.
An examination of Islam, violence, and the fate of the non-Muslim world. (98 mins)
Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public
examination. Relying primarily on Islam's own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.
The documentary consists of original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, comer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts. Its tone is sober, methodical, and compelling.
Outline of the Documentary.
We hear from prominent Western leaders that Islam is peaceful and that those who commit violence in its name are heterodox fanatics.
Part 1: 'There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet'
Our interviewees affirm their belief that Islamic violence is entirely orthodox behavior for Muslims and stems directly from the teachings and example of the Prophet Muhammad and the commands of the Koran (Qur'an). We learn that the example of Muhammad is one of a violent warlord who killed numerous people. The Koran (Qur'an) --the verbatim words of Allah --prescribes violence against non-Muslims and Muhammad is the perfect example of the Koran (Qur'an) in action.
Part 2: The Struggle
We learn that jihad, while literally meaning 'struggle', in fact denotes war fought against non-Muslims in order to bring the rule of Islamic law to the world. Violent death in jihad is, according to the Koran (Qur'an), the only assurance of salvation. One of our interviewees tells of his personal involvement in terrorism and his leaving Islam.
Part 3: Expansion
Following the death of Muhammad, his 'rightly-guided' successors carried his wars to three continents, fighting, enslaving, and massacring countless Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Hindus, and others. Islam did not spread through evangelism or through its natural appeal, but through aggressive wars of conquest. The Crusades were largely a belated response on the part of Christian Europe to rescue Christians in the Holy Land suffering under Muslim oppression. The Muslim world today, while no longer the unified empire of the Caliphs, is exceptional for being responsible for the vast majority of conflicts around the world and for almost all of international terrorism.
Part 4: 'War is Deceit'
A great problem with Western efforts to understand Islam is due to the Islamic principle of 'religious deception', which enjoins Muslims to deceive non-Muslims in order to advance the cause of Islam. Muslim groups today in the West employ deception and omission to give the impression that 'Islam is a religion of peace', an utter fiction.
Part 5: More than a Religion
The most important characteristic of Islam not understood by the West is that it is more a system of government than a personal religion. Throughout its history, Islam has never recognized a distinction between the religious and the secular/political. Islamic law governs every aspect of religious, political, and personal action, which amounts to a form of totalitarianism that is divinely enjoined to dominate the world, analogous in many ways to Communism.
Part 6: The House of War
Islamic theology divides the world into two spheres locked in perpetual combat, dar al-Islam (House of Islam -where Islamic law predominates), and dar al-harb (House of War -the rest of the world). It is incumbent on dar al-Islam to fight and conquer dar al-harb and permanently assimilate it. Muslims in Western nations are called to subvert the secular regimes in which they now live in accordance with Allah's command. Due to political correctness and general government and media irresponsibility, the danger posed by observant Muslims in the West remains largely unappreciated.

Millions of lives at stake as Iran develops biological arsenal
Iranian scientists, working under orders from the radicals running the Islamic regime, have genetically altered microbial agents in a nightmarish scheme to bring the West to its knees. According to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit with knowledge of Iran’s microbial research and development, the scientists, with Russian and North Korean help, currently possess eight extremely dangerous microbial agents that, if unleashed, could kill millions of people. As reported exclusively on WND on Dec. 16, the source revealed the existence of a plant in Marzanabad, Iran, where 12 Russian and 28 Iranian scientists are working on microbial agents for bombs. … The West, with its soft approach on the radical regime in Iran, has provided the needed time not only for it to arm itself with some of the most deadliest biological weapons but also, with the help of North Korea, to get the nuclear bomb, and, despite what the West believes, is now working to arm its missiles with such weapons of mass destruction, the source said.
In an alarming July 18 statement, Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayari said the Iranian navy plans on deploying warships in the Atlantic Ocean as part of a program to ply international waters, although he did not say where in the Atlantic the ships would be sent. Two days later, Rear Adm. Seyed Mahmoud Mousavi revealed, for the first time, that the Iranian navy has equipped a number of its logistic vessels and units with long-range surface-to-surface missiles. He stated, "Missile frigates and destroyers have been equipped with these missiles since a long time ago and the surface-to-surface missiles of the logistic vessels were successfully tested and assessed during the recent naval war games, dubbed as Joushan." More ominous is the warning by the chief commander of the Guards, Mohammad Ali Jafari: "Currently, we are seeking to utilize our defensive capabilities in open seas. And it means that if the enemy plans to pose a threat to the Islamic Republic, Iran is capable of taking reciprocal action, and this strategy is currently on our agenda." ... "One nightmare scenario posed by the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse was a ship-launched EMP attack against the United States by Iran, as this would eliminate the need for Iran to develop an ICBM to deliver a nuclear warhead against the U.S., and could be executed clandestinely, taking the U.S. by surprise. Since an EMP attack entails detonating a nuclear weapon at high-altitude, in space, it leaves no bomb debris for forensic analysis, no fingerprints identifying the attacker. We might never figure out who hit us, assuming the nation survives and recovers from an EMP attack," warns Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, president of EMPact America, who served on the congressional EMP commission. ... With the world's economy on the line and terrorism a major concern, global stability and security should be the top priority for world leaders. For that reason alone, the Iranian leaders who support worldwide terrorism, not to mention the many Iranian officials wanted by Interpol, should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons. A nuclear-armed Iran will change our world with horrific consequences.

'We shall make the Islamic civilization proud on the world stage'
“The issue of Imam Mahdi is of utmost importance, and his reappearance has been clearly stated in our holy religion of Islam,” Khamenei said. We must study and remind ourselves of the end of times and Imam Mahdi’s era. … We must prepare the environment for the coming so that the great leader will come.” Shiite theology holds that great wars must engulf the Earth, during which one-third of the world’s population will die in the fighting and another third from hunger, lawlessness and havoc. Israel is to be destroyed, and only then will the 12th imam, Mahdi, reappear and kill all the infidels, raising the flag of Islam in all corners of the world. ... “Today we have a duty to prepare for the coming. … If we are the soldiers of the 12th imam, then we must be ready to fight,” Khamenei said. “With the guidance of Allah and His invisible help, we shall make the Islamic civilization proud on the world stage. … This is our destiny. … The youth, the faithful must prepare themselves for this great move.” Referring to the Quran, Khamenei said the coming has been promised by Allah. “There will come a time when all the oppressive powers of the world will be destroyed and humanity will be enlightened in the era of Imam Mahdi.” ... The Revolutionary Guards’ media outlet, Mashregh, on Sunday warned Israel and America that they will have to guess as to what type of warhead the Iranian missiles will be carrying when targeting them. In its lengthy piece, Mashregh discussed Iranian missile capability and the devastation it can wreak on potential enemies. Referring to U.S. military bases in the region, it said that in recent war games, ballistic missiles with cluster warheads destroyed targets similar to air bases and fighter craft hiding under hangers. The piece boasts that the two-stage solid-fuel Sejil missile can pierce through Israel’s missile defense system and has had “the Zionists losing sleep.” After a decade of negotiation with Iran, the West has yet to make any inroads in stopping the regime’s illicit nuclear program.... While a majority of Iranians oppose the mullahs’ brutal regime, Western sanctions have not curtailed its pursuit of nuclear weapons, which not only could lead to the collapse of the global economy but the killing of tens of millions of innocent civilians, including those in Iran.

Partners with State, Education departments on international initiative
JERUSALEM – A Muslim Brotherhood-linked organization has partnered with the U.S. Department of Education and the State Department to facilitate an online program aiming to connect all U.S. schools with classrooms abroad by 2016. Vartan Gregorian, a board member of the organization, the Qatar Foundation International, was appointed in 2009 to President Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission. WND previously exposed that Gregorian served as a point man in granting $49.2 million in startup capital to an education-reform project founded by former Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers and chaired by Obama.
Source says federal officials pursuing program used in Texas A source in the Texas education system has told WND that Common Core operatives in the U.S. Department of Education are actively pursuing CSCOPE as a way around the Texas legislative process. Texas is one of the few states still resisting implementation of Common Core, Obama’s national standards initiative, which many feel is a transparent attempt to nationalize education and progressively control classroom content with minimal parental oversight. Implementation of Common Core is known to have been made a condition of school systems’ receipt of federal dollars under Obama’s “Race to the Top” program. CSCOPE recently has come under fire for evidence of what sources claim to be radical content and secrecy. Now new information of such a radical agenda has surfaced showing CSCOPE connections to Obama mentor and self-acknowledged terror group member Bill Ayers.

Highest-ranking Soviet-bloc defector finally spills nasty disinformation secrets
Communists created the modern Islamic terror movement? Sounds crazy. Yet, of all the astonishing disinformation campaigns recently revealed by the highest-ranking Soviet bloc spy chief ever to defect to the U.S., perhaps none is more important than the shocking ways the communist intelligence machine virtually invented today’s Islamic terrorism epidemic. In fact, says Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, former head of Romania’s foreign intelligence and top adviser to dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, inflaming Arab and Muslim anti-Semitism and promoting terrorism were high on the KGB’s to-do list for many years. ... In “Disinformation,” the true
malevolence and breathtaking scope of Soviet-bloc intelligence and disinformation operations is explored as never before – and far from academic “Cold War history,” the book’s revelations are likely to change the way Americans understand today’s world. In an op-ed featured today on FoxNews.com, Pacepa summarizes some of the ways the KGB and related communist intelligence services secretly created and fueled modern Arab terrorism: “In the late 1960s, KGB head Yuri Andropov, with whom I worked at one time, tasked the Soviet bloc’s disinformation machinery with turning the rest of the world against the U.S. by reviving anti-Semitism. Andropov knew that the U.S. would stand with Israel and that he could convince the European leftists and the Islamic world that America was dominated by Jews. “Andropov’s disinformation came to light in 1969, when Palestinian terrorists – secretly trained at the KGB’s Balashikha special-operations school east of Moscow – hijacked an El Al plane and landed it in Algeria. There its 32 Jewish passengers were held hostage for five weeks, during which time Andropov’s disinformation machinery portrayed Israel and the U.S. as the main dangers to world peace. “This pattern continued for years, as Andropov expanded his efforts from hijacking Israeli planes into organizing public executions of ‘Zionists.’ Andropov’s puppet, Dr. George Habash, Marxist leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, explained: ‘Killing one Jew far from the field of battle is more effective than killing a hundred Jews on the field of battle, because it attracts more attention.’”
By 1972, writes Pacepa, who lives in the U.S. under a CIA-protective identity due to still-active assassination threats against his life, the KGB’s disinformation machine “was working around the clock to persuade the Islamic world that the U.S. intended to transform the rest of the world into a Zionist fiefdom.” Andropov, he recalls, was utterly obsessed with convincing Muslims that the United States Congress was conspiring to have the Jews take over the world. “If we whipped up Muslim anti-Semitism,” Andropov would say, “then terrorism and violence against Israel and America would naturally follow.” Revealing that the KGB and related Soviet bloc intelligence services sent some 4,000 “agents of influence” into the Arab-Muslim Middle East to advance this agenda, Pacepa says he was, unfortunately, involved in spreading the most notorious and enduring piece of anti-Semitic propaganda throughout the Middle East: … The Romanian DIE (counterpart of KGB foreign intelligence), which I headed, in 1972 received from the KGB an Arabic translation of the old Russian forgery, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” We also received “documentary” material in Arabic produced by the Soviet disinformation “proving” America was a Zionist country whose aim was to transform the Islamic world into a Jewish fief. My DIE was ordered to disseminate these documents within its targeted Islamic countries. During my later years in Romania, the DIE disseminated thousands of copies of “The Protocols” and similar “documents” each month.
The ultimate result of this multi-faceted KGB-led disinformation campaign targeting the Arab-Muslim world, writes Pacepa in his FoxNews article, “was seen on Sept. 11, 2001. The weapon of choice for that horrific act was a hijacked airplane – a concept invented and perfected by Andropov’s disinformation machinery.” The book “Disinformation” – as well as the feature-length film documentary of the same name, released simultaneously by WND Films – go into much greater depth, exploring disinformation campaigns that turn most conventional geopolitical thinking on its head. For instance, with regard to terrorism, the book shows that Yasser Arafat, widely considered a bigger-than-life Palestinian leader, born in Jerusalem and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, was actually a creation of the KGB. Arafat was born in Egypt, not Jerusalem (the KGB destroyed his original birth documents and created new ones, reveals Pacepa) and was a committed Marxist who became the father of modern terrorism. Incredibly, Arafat’s successor, Mahmoud Abbas, was educated in Moscow at a KGB-run school. Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini was also trained by Moscow. And even the top man in Al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri, was trained by the KGB, as revealed by KGB defector Alexander Litvinenko, who was assassinated by Polonium poisoning. “Disinformation” is the first book ever written by a Soviet bloc spy chief whose introduction was written by a former U.S. spy chief – R. James Woolsey, former director of the CIA.
Note: This is a Suicide plan. But, what else should be expected from China.
The plan was unveiled by Chinese President Xi Jinping Monday at his talks with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas Monday, ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s arrival in Beijing for an official visit. The plan emphases as the key to a settlement the Palestinian right to a state with full sovereignty on the basis of 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital. “At the same time Israel’s right to exist and its legitimate security concerns should be fully respected.” DEBKAfile: The Chinese plan adopted Abbas’s preconditions for talks: “The immediate priority is to take credible steps to stop settlement activities, end violence against innocent civilians, lift the blockade of the Gaza Strip and properly handle the issue of Palestinian prisoners, in order to create the necessary conditions for the resumption of peace talks,” the Xi plan stressed. Furthermore, “principles such as land for peace should be firmly upheld.”
Diana West's new book reveals hidden stories of treason from WWII to the Cold War
A book called “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character” (St. Martin’s Press) shouldn’t promise uplift and spiritual renewal. I know. I wrote it.
That said, the story of “betrayal” my new book lays out – betrayal enabled by a de facto Communist occupation of Washington by American traitors loyal to Stalin, which would solidify in the 1930s under FDR and be covered up by successive U.S. administrations and elites – is not without inspiration. I am talking about the inspiration of the truth-tellers.
“American Betrayal” presents a rewrite of most of World War II and Cold War history, something I never imagined doing when I first began writing the book. This is simply the story that took shape from my research. And it takes shape in the book in a first-person narrative exactly as I stumbled across the revelations and put them together according to two basic mechanisms.
One relates to revelations from secret archives in Moscow and Washington that opened, briefly and partially, after the USSR dissolved in 1991. I discovered that the treason documented in these archives, treason committed by Americans in government, some in the very highest positions of power, had not been incorporated into our general historical understanding of such defining events as World War II and the Cold War. So I did my best to incorporate them. What emerges makes our history look completely different – even our near-sacred history of World War II.
The other stream of new information that I was able to reweave into the American story came from those I think of as the truth-tellers. These are the forgotten and/or maligned witnesses and investigators who told and sought the truth about the massive penetration and infiltration by Americans serving a hostile foreign power. (Yes, among them is Sen. Joe McCarthy.)
Their truth-seeking example is inspiring, particularly in an age of routine, serial lying and obfuscation in Washington. If there is one thing I hope my book does, it is to reintroduce us to these great Americans. Because they contradicted the official narrative – the “court histories” as author and historian M. Stanton Evans calls it – these Americans were smeared, marginalized and lost to us, their rudderless descendants.
We need them back in our historical and moral consciousness. To that end, I am embarking on an occasional series devoted to truth-tellers highlighted in “American Betrayal.”
I will begin with Maj. George Racey Jordan, who in 1949 and 1950 came forward to testify under oath before Congress that one big reason the Soviet Union had recently surprised the world by exploding an atomic bomb was that he, Jordan, the top “expediter” shipping thousands of tons of
U.S. war supplies and aircraft through an airfield in Great Falls, Mont., to the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease during World War II, had personally overseen the shipment of uranium to Moscow.
Really? Sure enough, as a congressional investigator would testify, two specific shipments of uranium oxide and nitrate were “completely documented to include even the number of the plane that the flew the uranium … out of Great Falls.” This postwar revelation before Congress would shock and anger Gen. Leslie Groves, head of the Manhattan Project, because he had slapped an embargo on the wartime export of uranium from the U.S. Of course, the shipments in question came from Canadian stocks. How did that happen? Therein lies a tale – a tale of betrayal.
Meanwhile, it wasn’t just uranium Jordan expedited, as he testified. Heavy water, too.
The congressional committee was able to document the shipment of heavy water, too.
In all, Jordan “expedited” 23 atomic materials through the big airbase in Montana to Moscow during the war, along with nearly 14 million pounds of aluminum tubes, also essential to atomic experimentation.
Findings in Soviet archives would later confirm that possession of the atomic bomb was what emboldened Stalin to trigger the Korean War in 1950. The implications of the theft of U.S. atomic secrets, then, becomes staggering.
After Jordan went public, all manner of witnesses stepped forward to corroborate different aspects of his story. There was the pilot who flew the uranium shipment (and said he handled brown grains of uranium that spilled from a box). There was the GI who recognized in Moscow-bound blueprints the chemical structure of uranium. Soviet defector Victor Kravchenko, celebrated author of “I Chose Freedom,” would himself testify before Congress and corroborate specific allegations by Jordan attesting to Lend-Lease as a giant conduit of Soviet espionage.
What even this skeletal synopsis of a tale that unfolds in detail in “American Betrayal” should make clear is that it wasn’t just the Rosenberg atomic spy ring that enabled the Soviet theft of U.S. atomic secrets. There was a massive looting effort under way inside the U.S. government overseen by senior Washington officials. Chief among these powers was Harry Hopkins, FDR’s very top, very enigmatic, very sinister (I have concluded) adviser. Hopkins was the power behind Lend-Lease – often the power behind Roosevelt, too – and a central figure in my book.
I knew none of this “lost” history going into my research more than four years ago. Precious few Americans, I’ve since learned, do. Hopkins, once famously known as Roosevelt’s “co-president,” is as absent from our national history lessons as Jordan, a credible eyewitness to what might well have been treason. Why do we have such blanks? Why isn’t Jordan’s earth-shaking testimony, most of it corroborated by documentation and supporting eyewitness accounts, ever taught? How did Hopkins, once the most powerful man in Washington next to FDR (and maybe more so) slip out of our collective memory? Who stole our history – and why?
These are the questions I set out to unravel in “American Betrayal.” On this quest, I learned there was nothing like seeking out, dusting off and listening to history’s truth-tellers.
Diana West celebrates woman who turned in Soviet agents embedded in government
One such witness – one such truth-teller – was Elizabeth Bentley.
I am looking at a 1948 newspaper photo of Bentley I recently bought on eBay. She is seated in an upholstered armchair, a small smile and lace collar her only adornments. She looks down at a white cat she is stroking in her lap. The cat looks straight at the camera, as though there were nothing else to disturb this peaceful scene but a flashbulb.
In fact, Bentley, then 40, had already entered the firestorm of public controversy that would affect the rest of her life.
Roughly three years earlier, in 1945, Bentley walked into an FBI office to inform the U.S. government that she had spent 10 years in the Communist Party underground, half of them as a courier for a secret Soviet espionage network that operated in Washington, D.C., and New York City. By the time my Bentley photo was snapped, she had begun testifying publicly about the U.S. government officials who were in and around the ring with her.
These included Lauchlin Currie, one of FDR’s top White House assistants, as well as White at Treasury. There were multiple OSS agents (the OSS was the precursor to the CIA) including Duncan Lee, top assistant to OSS chief William “Wild Bill” Donovan, and many other officials from elsewhere in the government. In all, Bentley would correctly identify 150 secret Soviet network members and collaborators – identifications subsequently documented by intelligence historians working with Soviet archives.
For all her trouble – for all her truth – Bentley would be publicly smeared as a crank and a fraud, or, as in her 1963 New York Times obituary, effectively dismissed because public officials she identified were not convicted of espionage. (Therein lies another tale of American betrayal.)
In “Spies,” a landmark 2009 intelligence history by John Earl Haynes, Harvey Klehr and Alexander Vassiliev, the authors completely vindicate Bentley. They call her defection to the FBI “the single most disastrous event in the history of Soviet intelligence in America,” and point out that “FBI investigations and voluminous congressional testimony supported Bentley’s story.” Soviet archives and deciphered KGB cables, they further note, “demonstrate unequivocally that Bentley told the truth.” And she stuck to it, even after the fur began to fly.
So why doesn’t this truth-telling American woman have a statue somewhere? Her alma mater, Vassar, would do for starters. Just as Yale pays monumental homage to its own renowned spy, Nathan Hale, Vassar should pay homage to Bentley. Why doesn’t it?
The answer, of course, is obvious: The American college campus remains an outpost of Marxism, the very ideology that animated so many of the Kremlin agents Bentley exposed. Indeed, this long-tenured Marxist influence over academia largely accounts for the anti-anti-Communist stranglehold on the historical narrative that skips or smears the truth-tellers, and thus the truth. Meanwhile, not only is Elizabeth Bentley reviled in academia, but some campuses even memorialize Soviet agents and collaborators, including Alger Hiss!
It’s time to give the truth-tellers their due and learn what really happened in the past, especially if we hope to prevent it from happening again.
Diana West shares story of Jewish journalist who discovered truth about Soviet massacre
One such truth-teller was Julius Epstein.
Epstein was a Jewish refugee from Nazi-occupied Austria who came to the United States and became a noted journalist and author. I will have room here to discuss only one of his monumental gifts to history – the truth about the Katyn Forest Massacre. (His work is further discussed in “American Betrayal.”) By dint of his reporting, he was able to expose Soviet guilt in a wartime atrocity that both the U.S. and Britain had officially covered up for the better part of a decade.
The Katyn Forest Massacre was the 1940 Soviet slaughter of some 20,000 Polish officers, whose mass graves were discovered by Nazi forces occupying the region in 1943. Senior
U.S. and British officials, out of deference to their wartime alliance with Stalin, decided to ignore the early evidence of Soviet guilt and blame the Nazis. What I argue in my book is that one consequence of this wartime alliance was an increasing moral and even operational complicity in Soviet crimes against humanity – “the secret assault on our nation’s character” of the book’s subtitle. The U.S. and Britain, meanwhile, were allies with Poland, too, but its betrayal at the hands of allies had just begun.
In 1949, after Epstein published two compelling stories in the New York Herald Tribune about the evidence of Soviet guilt in the Polish killings, Congress seated a Select Committee to investigate. This is exactly what so many of us are asking of Congress today in order to investigate Benghazi.
The importance of this committee cannot be overestimated. Congress was able to establish the record of what happened, including the U.S. government cover-up of the truth about Katyn.
The investigation also revealed that pro-Soviet influence inside the government played a major role. For example, the committee report states that “there was a pool of pro-Soviet civilian employees and some military” in Army intelligence who apologized for “almost everything that the Soviet Union did.” Also, this same pool exerted “tremendous efforts to suppress anti-Soviet reports,” and ensured that officers “too critical of the Soviets were bypassed” for promotion.
This has striking parallels with today. Change “Soviet” to “Islam” or “Muslim Brotherhood front groups,” and the report could be describing goings-on inside the U.S. government ever since 9/11, and certainly today.
In 1950, the U.S. government changed its official story on the Katyn massacre, recognizing Soviet guilt in this mass atrocity.
By dint of men such Julius Epstein, truth triumphs.
CULTURAL MARXISM explores the love affair with collectivist ideologies that has lead to ever bigger government and the welfare-warfare state. Find out how the Frankfurt School, a Marxist splinter group, established itself at Columbia University and began "the long march through the institutions." The idea was, and still is, to infiltrate every corner of Western culture and pervert traditional Christian values with "political correctness" and Marxist ideologies. The ultimate goal is to destroy American free-enterprise capitalism by undermining its economic engine, the Middle Class, and the basic building block of society: the Family Unit.
In 1963 the American congress met to review what would be known as the 45 Declared Goals to achieve communism in America. It is your patriotic duty to review what evidence exists today and make an educated decision based on these facts and the facts you find in your own investigation.
The 1960′s was a horrible era, we’re taught that these were the years of enlightenment but the horrifying truth is a large group of our population was mentally sedated by the drug explosion of LSD and other psychotropic drugs. In the same breath, communism was spreading like a wildfire across the globe and the communist insurgents took advantage of these individuals weakened mental states to inundate their minds with communist beliefs. Communism had taken hold in America under the guise of free love as flower child ‘communes’ were being established like a plague upon the country. If you were to ask 5 democrats in the congress or senate if they were a part of this movement they’d proudly say yes, or would say their parents were . At the time our representatives could see this and reviewed this document;

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]
1 U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. Achieved upon our push for the enactment of the United Nations
2 U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.See Benghazi Libya, see the capitulation with Iran as or the several treaties struck during the cold war such as nuclear proliferation.
3 Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. Currently not achieved. However, Barack Obama has another Supreme Court Judge appointment coming up, tipping the vote liberal from here on out.
4 Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. Achieved. See current trading policies with Russia, China, and Canada
5 Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. Done and Done.
6 Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. Achieved.
7 Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. Achieved and currently own the majority of American Debt.
8 Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. Achieved up until 1990, a move saved only by our Republican President, Ronald Reagan.
9 Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. Achieved again see Iran.
10 Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. FORMED AS ONE
11 Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) ACHIEVED AND THE UN AGENDA 21 HAS BEEN IMPLEMENTED ON A GLOBAL LEVEL
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. ACHIEVE See ‘The Communist Party of
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. Working on it. 5 states have banned.

All you need to do is now look at what the democrats are doing today to see that there is something sinister approaching us. With Obama more than willing to go over the fiscal cliff and the only way he won’t is by John Boehner allowing him to punish the earners of America with higher taxes, higher taxes that over 400 economists have stated will cost Americans jobs. Now take into consideration the Affordable Care Act “Obamacare” which over the next 10 years will socialize health care and eliminate your choice of health care, which will also be rationed. Barack Obama is funded by the mega-rich such as the CEO of Google (who oddly pays no taxes on 20 billions dollars in an offshore account), where these mega-rich are proponents of the two-party system, the serving class and the ruling class. There are countless pieces of evidence that this man is promoting communism in our country and it is up to you to investigate for yourself and find the truth, and when you find that truth it is your American duty to fight these traitors now.

Russia confronting obstacles to Eurasian Union Putin credited with designs to re-create Soviet Union
It would help consolidate Moscow’s leadership position with those countries which would constitute such a post-Soviet union, since it would take advantage of a Soviet-era common transportation and energy infrastructure which would have the effect of magnifying economic and political dependence on Russia, according to Dumitru Minzarari of the think-tank Jamestown Foundation. “In the developing economies of the CIS countries,” Minzarari said, “natural gas plays the role of a public good with pronounced social welfare effects. When delivered at low prices – as Russia is willing to offer in exchange for often painful concessions from its importers – natural gas has the potential to significantly affect the political capital of the national leaders.” He pointed out that Russia also represents a huge market with lower standards for produced goods, making them more accessible in these post-Soviet countries. “With so much economic and political influence, Russia will then be able to promote its preferred candidates in national elections along its periphery – and will basically own the national governments,” Minzarari said. “Such an outcome would also trigger a diffusion into neighboring countries of Russia’s political system, which is a form of ‘smart authoritarianism’ mimicking democratic institutions and processes.”
Chinese President Xi Jinping warned against foreign interference in the affairs of other nations during a speech in Moscow on Saturday, sending a signal to the West and echoing a message often repeated by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Permanent U.N. Security Council members with veto power, Russia and China have frequently teamed up diplomatically to blunt the influence of the United States and its NATO allies and have blocked three draft resolutions on Syria. "We must respect the right of each country in the world to independently choose its path of development and oppose interference in the internal affairs of other countries," Xi told students at an international relations school. He spoke a day after meeting Putin on his first foreign trip since becoming president, a choice both said underscored a "strategic partnership" between Russia and China. In the Kremlin, he told Putin: "you and I are good friends."
Russian premier gives unprecedented welcome to new Chinese leader as relations thaw “China and Russia are the main and most important strategic partners,” Mr Xi told Russian media upon his arrival. He said he was eagerly anticipating his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “In many ways we speak a common language,” he said.The grand welcome was a clear indication of the importance placed on the visit by Moscow. Russia is one of the world’s biggest energy producers, and China is the top energy consumer. These realities tend to outweigh the traditionally tense relations between the two neighbouring giants, who were bitter rivals during the Soviet era despite their ideological links. Russia has watched China’s rise with concern, anxious that it might someday threaten its dominance on its eastern borders. But a bigger concern for the Kremlin, one that it shares with China, is blunting US influence in the region. At the start of talks, Mr. Putin described the ties between the two countries as an “extremely important factor of global politics.”
Beijing acquiring major ownership in oil, natural gas across nation
Communist nation could control American land as 'development zones'
Under the plan, China would own U.S. businesses, U.S. infrastructure and U.S. high-value land, all with a U.S. government guarantee against loss.
By Hilmar von Campe "The main preoccupation of my parents during the Nazi years was to save us children from Nazi indoctrination," says Hilmar von Campe. At 10 years of age, like every other child, he had to enter the Hitler Youth and, at 18 he was conscripted into the army. As a gunner in a tank in the Yugoslavian theater fighting the Soviet army, in 1945 became a prisoner of war of the communist Tito government and in the same year staged a sensational escape crossing seven borders. His reports about the Nazi years and the war are a lesson of history as he brings facts unknown to most Americans.
As he recounts the life of a German family before, during and after the 12-year Nazi rule, von Campe references historical developments and social trends tying them to his personal story. Follow along as von Campe analyzes the totalitarian roots of the national socialist and international socialist/communist ideologies. His frightening conclusion links key facets of Islamic terrorism to both Hitler and socialism.
Looking back on the Nazi regime, he describes why it came about, his own moral responsibility and how his life changed. The Nazi system, like any other totalitarian system, he says, is
based on lies. Lies are at the root of the problem in the world. You can't defeat them with money or armies but only with the truth.
This book asks the crucial question, “What is the role of God in society?” Von Campe’s entire discourse seems to return the reader to this question. This stunning personal testimony shows what happens when God is thrown out of government and society and when Christians sit back as “religious bystanders.” Von Campe compares developments in American society and in the world today with what happened in pre-Nazi Germany and warns America to turn away now from the destructive ideological path we are on.
Marked by ignorance of right and wrong, American society now elects people into office who uphold Marxist ways instead of the American way. Von Campe vehemently states that “these two philosophies are incompatible. Every day brings this nation closer to a Nazi-style totalitarian abyss.”
Because of his unique personal experiences, von Campe has a fresh and much-needed view of American society. Von Campe gives an insightful description of today’s “neo-nazis,” warns that Nazi ideals are steadily chipping away at America’s freedom, then proposes an action plan to salvage our eroding freedom.
“Socialism is the phantastic younger brother of despotism which it wants to inherit. Socialism wants to have the fullness of state force which before only existed in despotism ... However, it goes further than anything in the past because it aims at the formal destruction of the individual … who … can be used to improve communities by an expedient organ of government.” -Friedrich Nietzsche
FIAT EMPIRE was one of the first films to come out on the Federal Reserve System providing a valuable primer on a complex subject. This 60-minute documentary explores why some feel the "Fed" is a "bunch of organized crooks" (as John Adams put it) and others feel some of its practices "are in violation of the U.S. Constitution." Discover why experts agree the Fed is a banking cartel that benefits mainly bankers, their clients in need of "easy money" and bailouts, and a Congress that would rather go deeper in debt than seek funding from its constituents. Long-term studies indicate the Federal Reserve System encourages war, destabilizes the economy (by causing boom and bust cycles), generates inflation (a hidden tax) and is the supreme instrument of unjust enrichment for a select group of insiders. If you are fed up with an ever-expanding state and corporations that are "too-big-to-fail," look no farther than the fiat currency printed by the Federal Reserve System.
Dr. Woods discusses his diagnosis of the crisis and proposed solutions and how these are close to the opposite of the conventional wisdom, which blames the meltdown on the free market and "greed." He also shows that there are indeed moral failings at the heart of the crisis, but that blaming mere "greed" leaves us to wonder why bouts of greed should appear only in sudden, cyclical clusters.
Note: Consider skipping the over the environmental section, unless you buy into the green religion. Technology (horizontal drilling + hydraulic fracturing) continue to delay the onset of peak oil theories, but enviromania keeps prospectors off vast swaths of U.S. Land. The higher cost of this technology plus enviromania will tend to support higher oil prices. But, current low natural gas prices are suppressing oil price increases.
The Crash Course seeks to provide you with a baseline understanding of the economy so that you can better appreciate the risks that we all face.
