VOLUME XX, NUMBER 2
Table of Contents
By John Tiffany. “Remember, remember, the 5th of November” was the mantra of the British government after an alleged plot to blow up King James I and the members of Parliament with tons of gunpowder was discovered. According to history, Guido “Guy” Faukes was caught in the act and a vast Catholic conspiracy against the Protestant regime was exposed. But what real evidence is there to prove the official narrative is true? Was it a 17th-century “false flag” designed to foment perpetual war and suppress religious freedom?
THE MURDER OF LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
By Philip Rife. British officer T.E. Lawrence, better known as “Lawrence of Arabia,” had seen death, destruction and duplicity on a grand scale in World War I. He was a hero to many Brits and his opinion carried much weight with the common man. Despite this fact, once it was discovered that he was going to advocate a less hostile policy toward Hitler’s Germany and a more bellicose posture toward communist Russia, his fate may have been sealed. Was he murdered just before he was scheduled to meet with pro-Hitler British fascists?
DARK AGE HOLOCAUST OF THE JEWS
By William A. White. A long-suppressed fact about the Muslim invasion of Europe in the 7th and 8th centuries is the role that Jews played in aiding the invaders. When the Muslim invaders entered Spain, for instance, the Islamic forces were in most cases welcomed with open arms by their Semitic brethren, aiding and abetting the invaders in their destruction of Spanish cities and the massacre of Christian inhabitants. To hide this uncomfortable fact, politically correct scholars are simply denying that large Jewish populations were thriving in many Spanish and French regions. In short, there has been a “holocaust” of Middle Age history.
VLADIMIR LENIN: AGENT OF THE CZAR?
Translated by Margaret Huffstickler. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Europe was a hotbed of anarchist and communist activity, with Paris being a particular focus of Red revolutionaries. To counter the massive wave of terror that had spread across Russia at the time—thousands of Russians had been killed—the Russian czars organized and funded the Okhrana secret police, which was tasked with infiltrating and undermining these murderous, mostly Jewish revolutionaries. Things got so bad, however, Russia approved a deal to bring the exiled Vladimir Lenin back to Russia in the hopes that he would weaken these competing factions and adopt a less violent posture. Unfortunately for Christian Russia, they were very, very wrong.
A HISTORY OF THE RUSSIAN FASCISTS
By Daniel W. Michaels. Thousands of Russians defied the communist regime that seized power in Russia in 1917 and murdered Czar Nicholas II and his family in 1918. Soon, thereafter, many patriotic right wingers fled Russia to avoid torture and/or death in forced labor camps. Diligently, they set up resistance efforts in Western Europe and Japanese Manchuria. By the 1930s, two prominent Russian fascists—Anastasy Vonsiatsky and Konstantin Rodzaevsky—had become the de facto leaders of the emigré effort to undermine the communist mass murderers who were spreading terror across Russia.
ENIGMATIC MASTER BUILDERS OF MALTA
By Marc Roland. On the islands of the tiny archipelago of Malta— located nearly in the center of the Mediterranean Sea—exist stone complexes of great sophistication and antiquity. Larger and more intriguing than even Stonehenge, they seem to incorporate building techniques reminiscent of those used in the cyclopean architecture of Sacsayhuaman, Gobekli Tepe and Mykenae. But who built the enigmatic megaliths of Malta and why? And did they influence other great cultures?
FACTS & MYTHS OF THE DESERT FOX
By Ronald L. Ray. To many, Gen. Erwin Rommel—the Desert Fox of North Africa—is a puzzle. A master tactician and inspirational leader, Rommel befuddled the Allied forces for years, fighting loyally for Germany in Africa and Europe. Then, the story goes, he turned on Adolf Hitler and became one of the worst traitors in modern history. British historian David Irving—a master of uncovering hidden historical archives—tried in his own right to set the record straight in a book about Rommel. Craving more about a man who still remains a national hero in a nation denied its heroes, the German public recently reveled in a rather balanced mainstream film about Rommel. But where did the information for this film come from, i.e., was the work of Irving pilfered for the movie without his knowledge or without proper compensation? Find out.
