A TIME FOR GIVING
It’s Thanksgiving and Christmas time again, and we have a wonderful gift for you: another issue of THE BARNES REVIEW history magazine. I know you will find this edition—the last of 2022—to be full of fascinating, uncensored information that will stimulate your cerebrum.
This issue we lead off with an article by Karl Haemers detailing the attempted suppression of Christmas celebrations in the past, starting with the Puritans of the 1600s and ending with attempts by Dr. Anthony Fauci and other Covid-crazed bureaucrats to prevent Christians from celebrating one of our two holiest days of the year. While the Puritans objected to raucous jollifications during Christmastime, considering too much drinking and gift-giving an abomination worthy of a fine, imprisonment or a stern lecture, Fauci and his heavy-handed overlords were trying to prove a bigger point: your First Amendment rights under the Constitution of our republic are not guaranteed to you by God, but by the state, and that those rights can be “abridged” at any time deemed an “emergency.”
Even your right to “peaceably assemble” and worship is at the whim of our overlords. However, as you will see, though both the Puritans and the CDC tried, the spirit of Christmas and the desire to worship won out. Increasingly popular French-Canadian author Rémi Tremblay offers us an inside glimpse at the art of painting during the Third Reich. Many believe Adolf Hitler only sanctioned “Nazi propaganda” pieces, but they are wrong. There were many painters working who were not part of Hitler’s regime, and their creativity was encouraged, not stifled—unless, of course, it was the degenerate art of the Weimar period. We also hear from Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson about the political thinking of Aleksandr Dugin of Russia, whose daughter was killed recently by a car bomb meant for him, allegedly placed by a Ukrainian assassination team. Dugin’s views are important because he believes that the liberal political system of the increasingly secular, possession-hoarding West was not created for the people of Russia and Eurasia, and that such a system is anathema to them. Intransigent liberals, he says, see the East as backwards and barbarous, a region that must be subdued and “enlightened.” After you read this article, you will have an idea why Dugin was targeted.
The corruption and politicization of the FBI is again in the news as the Biden administration further weaponizes that U.S. law enforcement agency against the people, particularly conservatives. But, as investigator and author Pat Shannan tells us, this is really nothing new. He presents a short but shocking history of the modern FBI and its underhanded operations. Haemers appears again to give us the uncensored history of the for-profit medical industry and the men behind it. John Wear recounts the Soviet inspired Morgenthau Plan. Antonius J. Patrick graces us with a review of one of anti-Communist priest Denis Fahey’s most politically incorrect works, while historian Marc Roland continues his quest to prove Europeans were in America millennia before even the Vikings with an examination of the effigy mounds of the American Midwest. I myself would like to call attention to the enclosed 2022 TBR Christmas Catalog as well as the color pages wrapping this issue. On those pages you will find many brand new history books from TBR that would make great gifts for you or a loved one. Please also consider renewing your own subscription or purchasing a TBR gift subscription for a friend. Gift subscriptions are now priced at just $28 in the United States.
Have a happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas! — PAUL ANGEL, Executive Editor

A JOURNAL OF POLITICALLY INCORRECT HISTORY
NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2022 ❖ VOLUME XXVIII ❖ NUMBER 6
TABLE OF CONTENTS
PURITANS, FAUCI FAIL TO KILL CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS
BY KARL HAEMERS In the 1600s, the Puritans, whose main goal was to purge or purify the Protestant Church of England of all Catholic influence, set sail for new lands. In both the Old and New World, they loathed Christmas celebrations, considering exchanging of gifts and Yuletide greetings a satanic sacrilege. Fast forward 400 years and we find that Puritans aren’t the only ones who hate Christmas.
PAINTING IN GERMANY FROM WEIMAR TO THE THIRD REICH
BY RÉMI TREMBLAY During the Weimar period, nothing flourished in Germany, not even the fine arts. Everything in that era was poisoned by a twisted view of the world, and painting was no exception. Influenced by alien trends that rejected beauty and adopted ugliness as a norm, things changed drastically once regimes changed and Weimar died. Once again, the arts began to thrive.
EURASIANISM & CIVILIZATION
BY DR. MATTHEW RAPHAEL JOHNSON We in the West have been told by our leaders that the noble ideals of humanism, democracy and liberalism represent the apex of a civilization. Those nations and cultures that do not agree with this view are backward and must be transformed or wiped out. Influential Russian philosopher Aleksandr Dugin does not believe this, and this may explain why he was targeted for assassination.
THE GREAT RESET: WHAT IS IT AND WHO IS BEHIND IT?
BY DR. MATTHEW RAPHAEL JOHNSON The Great Reset: You’ve heard about it in the news. But what exactly is this plan touted by the global elite and scheduled for implementation as early as 2030? Here, TBR explains what the Great Reset is really all about, who is behind it and why, if it is implemented, it will mean slavery for billions of people.
CORRUPTION AT THE BUREAU: IT’S REALLY NOTHING NEW
BY PAT SHANNAN Once a highly respected crime-fighting agency, the FBI has recently been exposed as an enforcement arm of the federal government whose main goal is quelling public dissent. Were we deluding ourselves the FBI was anything but a well-funded domestic terrorist group?
THE JEWISH ORIGINS OF THE FOR-PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRY
BY KARL HAEMERS In the early 1900s in America, big wigs at the Carnegie Foundation decided the people did not know what was best for their own health. In stepped Abraham Flexner who wrote a report advocating that any medical care not approved by “experts” must be ended.
THE MORGENTHAU PLAN: A SOVIET INSPIRED SCHEME
BY JOHN WEAR, J.D. TBR has discussed in the past the despicable treatment of German civilians after WWII and the plan to deindustrialize the nation. Who were the architects of this plan and what was the involvement of Soviet agents?
EFFIGY MOUNDS OF THE AMERICAN MIDWEST
BY MARC ROLAND Author Marc Roland continues his quest to prove that ancient Europeans greatly influenced the Indians of the Americas long before Columbus and others got here by examining the effigy mounds of the Midwest.
FR. DENIS FAHEY ON CATHOLICISM, JUDAISM & ANTI-SEMITISM
BY ANTONIUS J. PATRICK TBR reviews Father Denis Fahey’s classic book The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation in this important piece highlighting the views of one of the most controversial—and courageous—Catholic leaders in modern Western history.
