The Barnes Review, March/April 2005: Thomas Jefferson Lambastes the Bankers
VOLUME XI, NUMBER 2
Table of Contents
By Thomas Jefferson. In this seminal essay, our third president outlines the constitutional argument against the erection of a central bank. It is important because this constitutionalist analysis laid the groundwork for all the polemics against the bankers that were to come through Jackson to the Nebraska populists to our modern patriot movement.
NEW ZEALAND’S HIDDEN PAST
By John Tiffany. The racial and cultural history of New Zealand is almost completely ignored among Americans. First there is the evidence that the ancient Maoris were not first to New Zealand’s shores. And then there is the fight of the Maoris against their British colonial oppressors. Both were in need of some authentic Revisionist examination.
ISLAM’S LINKS TO JUDAISM
By Dr. Harrell Rhome. TBR Board Member Dr. Harrell Rhome takes aim at the conception that Judaism and Islam are radically different. The facts prove otherwise. Mohammed was heavily influenced by Jewish ideas, and Islam takes much from its ancient surroundings. Here’s a look at comparative religion and ethnology not being discussed elsewhere.
THE TRUTH ABOUT BURMA
By Dr. M. Raphael Johnson, PH.D. For anyone who follows Asian politics, the government of Burma, also called Myanmar, is held up to the most withering contempt since the Third Reich. The elite media the world over has condemned Burma for its repressive government and oppression of student activists. But what is the real story? Does George Soros’s violent invective have a hidden agenda? And, just as importantly, what sort of government does Burma have, and who does it serve?
AFTER GERMANY SURRENDERED
By Robert K. Logan. Our own Robert Logan lays bare the Allied propaganda about the fate of Germany after the war. Deliberately left out of the victors’ history textbooks is the story of mass rape, imprisonment, murder and pillage carried out by nearly all Allied military personnel after Germany fell.
EXTERMINATE ALL GERMANS
By Walter & Herta Ruthard. In these essays we read of the treatment of Germans during and after WWII from a personal perspective. While Holocaust survivors have continually told the world about their fate, in personal and tearjerking terms, it is about time that the German people had their say about their own suffering. Herta and Walter Ruthard were both victims of atrocities during the World War II era, and are still alive and kicking to tell the world about it. Whether the world will take heed is another matter.
ITALY & THE A-BOMB
By Robert K. Logan. For the first time in English, the story of Italy’s progress on atomic energy and weaponry is being told. Few are aware that the Italians under Benito Mussolini were very close to completing and harnessing atomic energy. While her scientists were not interested in warfare, Italy’s scientific establishment made unprecedented strides toward the development of atomic energy and, by extension, weaponry. Furthermore, Italy may have been poised to strike the United States herself. This story will do quite well in dispelling the myth of “Italian incompetence” that Italian-Americans have had to deal with for decades.
THE PRAGUE TREASON TRIAL
By Francis Parker Yockey. While almost everyone has heard of the Dreyfuss affair, few have heard of the Rudolf Slansky trial. This trial for treason in the Soviet occupied Czech Republic brought the problems of “Stalinist anti-Semitism” to a head. While not everyone will accept Yockey’s depiction of Stalin as an “anti-Semitic Russian nationalist and panslavist,” the politics of the 1950s USSR were to some extent shaped by this trial, and the Soviet view of Jews was likewise affected. This trial and the ideological baggage that permeated it has yet to be fully discussed.
IRVING BABBITT & IMPERIALISM
By Dr. M. Raphael Johnson, PH.D. Few have read the writings of Irving Babbitt, a mild mannered professor of French literature at Harvard about 100 years ago, but those who do come away rather refreshed. His penetrating insight into current affairs and political theory are the equal to Harry Elmer Barnes, his contemporary. Babbitt laid the blame for imperialism and imperialist warfare squarely on the shoulders of liberalism, and, specifically on its radical variety propounded by French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. This is a brief analysis of a lengthy argument laid out in his seldom read Democracy and Leadership, currently published by Liberty Press.
By Wulf Schuldes. Much has been written about the Knights of the Temple, but still, there is much mystery that surrounds the organization. Did they indeed begin the modern process of banking in Europe? Did they in fact practice ritual black magic, complete with sex rituals and death rituals? Were they justly condemned as heretics and disturbers of the peace? Many of these questions are answered here. This is not an exhaustive treatment of the subject, but it goes a long way to direct further research and develop useful ideas about the evolution of black magic and the Kabbala. It also delves into the possibility that Templars, fleeing persecution and “the stake” in Europe, might have found their way to the New World well before Christopher Columbus.
