NATIONWIDE LEFTIST VIOLENCE RETURNS
T he Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has made it official. White nationalists now represent the greatest domestic terror threat to the United States, placing white nationalists on the same level as the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists who ran amok in the Mideast for a decade. This is almost laughable, as the United States and its Mideast “allies,” Israel, Crown Prince bin Salman of Saudi Arabia and Erdogan of Turkey, have armed and funded these same ISIS terrorists for the sole purpose of terrorizing and killing whatever Muslim or Christian sect resisted U.S.-Zionist hegemony in the region.
Specifically, FBI Director Christopher Wray said, “We take domestic terrorism or hate crime—regardless of ideology—extremely seriously, I can assure you, and we are aggressively pursuing it using both counterterrorism resources and criminal investigative resources and partnering closely with our state and local partners.” Wray added, “A majority of the domestic terrorism cases that we’ve investigated [in 2019 and thus far in 2020] are motivated by some version of what you might call white supremacist violence.”
Wray also said, “We, the FBI, don’t investigate the ideology, no matter how repugnant. We investigate violence. And any extremist ideology, when it turns to violence, we’re all over it.” Really, Director Wray? You’re all over it? Then why has the FBI done nothing to stop attacks on conservative white people in this nation? Why are neo- Bolshevik “antifa” members allowed to assault white people all across the nation? Recently, for instance, a man with “anti-fascist” leanings nearly killed several Republican election workers manning a voter registration tent in Florida. The man said he did it because he didn’t like President Donald Trump.
When confronted at his home by police later that day, he gleefully showed his own cellphone video of the automobile attack and was disappointed, according to police, that the video ended “before the good part,” the “good part” being when he nearly killed six innocent people trying to sign up voters for the coming elections. And, while the FBI is busy tracking down white nationalists, neo-Bolsheviks are shutting down metro stations in New York, violently attacking conservatives at campaign rallies and free speech marches, throwing bricks, metal tools, chains, bags of feces and bottles of urine at Trump supporters or those marching in support of U.S. culture heroes, encouraging deadly attacks against police officers, aggressively preventing free speech on college campuses, viciously attacking U.S. soldiers, firebombing immigration detention centers, maliciously beating reporters whom antifa members deem unsympathetic to their cause etc etc.
Unfortunately, the activities of “antifa” mark the return of armed left-wing terrorism in the United States. People—including, evidently, FBI Director Wray—forget that it was not so long ago that the United States was incessantly terrorized by radical left-wing revolutionary groups. Just 50 years ago, during the 1970s, the United States endured more than 1,000 leftist terror bombings carried out by dozens of radical underground groups. This in- cluded the Weather Underground, the New World Liberation Front, the Symbionese Liberation Army and multiple Puerto Rican independence groups—all willing to kill innocent Americans for their own twisted causes.
We understand that revolutionary movements rise and fall in fits and spurts, but, for some reason, leftist politicians and the far-left media refuse to condemn this behavior today. Media puppets like Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and Chuck Todd (to name a few) have, in the past, either praised the violent tactics of the neo-Bolshevik left or actually justified it. Todd even had Mark Bray, author of The Anti-Fascist Handbook, on his show to explain why violence against Trump supporters is necessary. Worse, leftist politicians like former U.S. representative and current Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and overtly racist Rep. Maxine Waters of California have both praised left-wing violence. Waters even posed on Twitter with one of the antifa thugs charged with participating in a neo-Bolshevik mob beating of several U.S. Marines.
The Anti-Defamation League claims on its website that antifa’s “ideology is rooted in the assumption that the Nazi Party would never have been able to come to power in Germany if people had more aggressively fought them in the streets in the 1920s and 1930s.” This is complete horse manure, and quite the opposite to fact. Adolf Hitler did not inspire violent leftist resistance; he created his own stormtroopers to halt the violence of communist gangs who terrorized and murdered tens of thousands of German citizens. The same can be said of Donald Trump: Antifa was not organized to resist Trump.
The election of Trump came as a concerned voter response to the widespread fear created by the reemergence of left- wing violence and ideology, not the other way around. Leftist violence is what the FBI should be focusing on, not trying to vilify white nationalists who are, for the most part, peace-loving, anti-war patriots who love the United States of America with all their hearts. As we have said many times in the past, THE BARNES REVIEW condemns violence of any kind, whether it be carried out by the left or right, whether domestic or foreign. Change can be accomplished peacefully at the voting booth, and this is where we encourage Americans to have their voices heard and to vigorously effect political change. This includes voting out of office any politician that supports, condones or justifies violence on the left or right.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
MANMADE CLIMATE CHANGE : IS IT NOTHING BUT HOT AIR ?
BY JOHN WEAR, J.D.
Global warming hysteria has reached a fever pitch in recent years, with liberal politicians making it a central focus of their campaigns, globalist organizations championing the cause, and major celebrities and child ac- tivists stepping on the stage to insist the West must address “manmade climate change” before it’s too late. But what is the truth?
RESCUING WORLD WAR II HISTORY
BY D R . PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts is one of the most influential and recognizable public intellectuals in America today. Having served as a public official, journalist, and pundit for much of his life, he has recently taken a keen interest in historical Revisionism, particularly as it relates to WWII, one of the most distorted and falsified aspects of the collective Western historical paradigm.
WAR PLAN RED: AMERICA’S 1930S PLAN TO CRIPPLE BRITAIN
BY MARC ROLAND
Rivalries between superpowers are nothing new, and should be expected. However, the feud between the United States and Great Britain following WWI was a little-understood and not-well-studied power struggle between two global players and inseparable allies. Longtime TBR contributor Marc Roland provides the details of the time the U.S. and Britain almost went to war—in the 1930s.
U.S. FOREIGN POLICY : 1932-1940
BY ANTONIUS J. PATRICK
Noted American historian and scholar Charles Beard, still one of the most influential historians in American history, was a fierce critic of FDR’s globalist, interventionist and biased anti-German policy leading up to WWII. Beard correctly argued FDR was the driving factor that forced the U.S. into the fratricidal bloodletting of the 1940s.
LETTERS FROM THE EASTERN FRONT
BY MICHAEL WALSH
Few outside Germany understood the barbaric nature of the communist tyrants ruling Russia following the Bolshevik Revolution. German political leaders clearly explained the threat facing the West. German soldiers experienced the horrors of Bolshevism firsthand, while fighting the Reds in the USSR. Their letters home offer important insights into one of the darkest chapters of human history.
AN HONEST LOOK AT JAPAN ’ S WORLD WAR II KAMIKAZE PILOTS
BY THOMAS GOODRICH
As readers are well aware, much of the official historiography surrounding WWII is exaggerated, distorted or outright false. The Axis powers have been hysterically demonized to the point of absurdity. Here, TBR contributor and respected author Thomas Goodrich demystifies the notorious kamikaze pilots of the Japanese air force. Were they insane zealots?
SHOULD WHITE PEOPLE BE A SHAMED OF THEIR HISTORY?
B Y V.P. HUGHES
The war on white people has never been so vicious as it is right now. Weaponized smear words such as “white supremacist,” “Nazi” and “racist,” coupled with a virulent narrative of Western history, have psychologi- cally disarmed and disabled many whites. But should white people be ashamed of their past? Are whites inherently racist? You be the judge.
MCFADDEN VS. THE MONEYLENDERS
BY JOHN WEAR , J.D.
U.S. Rep. Louis McFadden’s crusade against the Money Powers is one of the most honorable struggles in U.S. political and financial history. His critiques of the moneylenders and the system of debt slavery formulated in 1910 when the Federal Reserve was conceived should be studied in every American university. So, why has McFadden been so effectively erased from U.S. financial history?
