By M. Raphael Johnson. Ukraine is little studied, known or understood in the West. Some claim she is a part of Russia, others Poland; others deny her a unique cultural status or even deny a unified “Ukrainian” culture. Others know nothing of her at all.
By Issa Nakleh. In the weeks and months preceding the September 11, 2001, attacks on Manhattan and the Pentagon, a global upsurge of anti-Zionist feelings culminated in the dramatic UN Conference on Racism and Colonialism in Durban, South Africa. Thousands of delegates witnessed massive street demonstrations by hordes of people, mostly Third Worlders.
By David Astle. Privately created money, that is to say, counterfeit money, is the ultimate destroyer of civilizations. And it has all happened before—long before. Both in the Code of Manu (a law structure governing the order of life of that India which emerged from the Vedic period) and in the laws of the Akkadian kings of Mesopotamia, appear prohibitions of either goldsmith workers in precious metals, or warehousers of valuables of whatever nature, setting themselves up as in opposition to the king—that is to say, the sovereign power.
By Stephen J. Martin. Even the establishment now admits that Leif Eriksson and other Vikings reached at least as far as what is now Canada and made settlements there. But controversy continues to surround claims that the Vikings penetrated to Minnesota, perhaps by way of Hudson Bay. The main evidence that they may have done so is the Kensington Rune Stone (KRS). But the stone has been widely pooh-poohed. Is it real or is it a fake?
By M. Raphael Johnson. “I conclude then that since fortune changes, and men stubbornly continue to behave in the same way, men flourish when their behavior suits the times and fail when they are out of step. I do think, however, that it is better to be headstrong than cautious, for fortune is a lady. It is necessary, if you want to master her, to beat and strike her.” —The Prince, Chapter 25, page 76.
By Stephen J. Martin. In 1839, the United States was nearly drawn into her third major war within 60 years against Great Britain. But instead, the “Aroostook War” turned out to be a phony war. From a patriotic viewpoint, a real war—for a variety of reasons—probably should have been fought.
By J.S. Slaymaker. Kennewick Man is said by scientists to be one of the most ancient human remains thus far unearthed in America and was radiocarbon dated to be about 9,400 years old, and appears to be Caucasiod, rather than Monogloid in origin. The national media is almost at a loss for words as, due to the unexpected discovery of such inconvenient facts, their own historically tainted doctrines of political correctness now hang in the balance.
By M. Raphael Johnson. The life of Rudolf Hess constitutes one of the glaring examples of myth within the study of World War II and beyond. In the orgy of demonization that brought on and sustained World War I and its aftermath, Rudolf Hess’s memory needed to be effaced from the earth. His mission to Britain for peace, according to the Nuremberg Trials, was a “war crime” for which Hess needed to be punished.
By Edward T. May. When considering vast events such as the fall of the western Roman empire, the linkage of specific events with exact dates is a dicey proposition at best. One cannot say, for example, that the empire began its demise in a certain year, or that its absolute collapse occurred on such-and-such a day.
By John Tiffany. Some Mexicans and Mexican-Americans want to see California, New Mexico and other parts of the United States given to Mexico. They call it the “reconquista,” Spanish for “reconquest,” and they view the millions of Mexican illegal aliens entering this country as their army of invaders to achieve that takeover.
