VOLUME XX, NUMBER 3
Table of Contents
By Marc Roland. Last issue TBR writer Marc Roland told us about the extremely sophisticated Neolithic megalith builders of Malta and the structures they evidently erected sometime around the end of the last major ice age. This issue Marc explains what happened to these ancient whites centuries after and the natural cataclysm that forever changed their way of life and that of other Bronze Age cultures of the region.
ANCIENT WHITES FROM SIBERIA . . .
By Jenifer Dixon. Proponents of the idea that the first Americans were Mongoloids who crossed the Bering land bridge about 15,000 years ago and invented the Clovis culture were given a boost recently from DNA testing on the bones of a young child found in a Montana grave that showed that the child had “Siberian” genes. But does this “evidence” really prove their point?
THE TOLEDO BORDER WAR
By Ronald L. Ray. Before the U.S. Civil War broke out, there was another “civil war” brewing between the Michigan Territory and its southern neighbor, Ohio, during the time of President Andrew Jackson. Things got so bad, forces from the two states squared off to do battle over a small parcel of land called the Toledo Strip.
THE TRIAL OF JEFFERSON DAVIS
By Bill Ward. It was the court proceeding that many Southerners and Northerners alike were looking for: the trial of President Jefferson Davis. Some in the administration of Andrew Johnson wanted to prove Davis was a traitor, while Southerners thought chances were good that the cause of the Dixie could be vindicated with a verdict of “not guilty.” But the trial was not to be.
THE MARY PHAGAN MURDER CASE
By Dr. Harrell Rhome. More than 100 years ago, little Mary Phagan headed off to an Atlanta pencil factory to pick up her meager paycheck. Though the plant was closed that day, the manager, Leo Frank, was in his office and more than happy to accommodate little Mary. What happened next shocked the nation: Mary was brutally abused and murdered, and her killer went on trial for his life. In the end, the Anti-Defamation League was born.
WHAT REALLY DOWNED HITLER’S AIRSHIP
By Philip Rife. The Hindenburg zeppelin was the biggest airship ever assembled. Nearly three football fields long, it could zip across the Atlantic at a top cruising speed of 85 mph proudly displaying the swastika on its tailfins. And then, in an instant, it was gone, engulfed in a massive fireball just as it was docking in Lakehurst, New Jersey. The official story is that a jolt of static electricity ignited the hydrogen in its tanks, but behind the scenes both German and American investigators were alleging terrorism. So what is the truth?
POST-WWII ALLIED PURGE OF ARTISTS
By Joaquin Bochaca. The West is looked upon a bastion of free speech, free thought and artistic expression. But during and immediately after World War II, the victorious Western Allies began a crusade against all who sought to praise fascism, National Socialism or any of the leaders of the Axis nations. In this article Spanish Revisionist Joaquin Bochaca takes us on a whirlwind tour across WWII Europe, detailing which artists, poets, authors and thinkers were punished for their politically incorrect beliefs and how.
KNUT HAMSUN: ‘THE SOUL OF NORWAY’
By Stephen P. Goodson. Knut Hamsun was a Norwegian patriot, poet and writer who grew from humble farming roots to win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920. Hamsun, ever the social commentator was never afraid to discuss any subject, from race to the degradation he saw in city life to the weak-willed leaders in the political arena. This ended up getting him in some serious trouble with the Allies, who resented this famous Norseman’s support for fascist Prime Minister Vidkun Quisling, Hitler and Mussolini.
WAS ADOLF HITLER A CHICKEN?
By Cassian D’Ornellas. In this issue of TBR we continue our short but factual biography of Adolf Hitler. Contained herein you’ll find two chapters: one discussing the myth that Adolf Hitler was some kind of a coward, hiding out during battles and running from any conflict, and the other briefly outlining Hitler’s superior artistic sense. Hitler was an accomplished artist in several media and possessed the mind and the soul of an artist. Contrary to the court historians, he was the driving force behind the German cultural renaissance.
