THE GREAT SEDITION TRIAL OF 1944
By Michael Collins Piper & Ken Hoop. Was the secret purpose of the infamous sedition trial of 1944 to make FDR’s administration appear to be opposed to fascism while actually pursuing totalitarian policies? Fortunately for the cause of liberty, the victims targeted, although not powerful individuals, were able to put up such an effective defense that the U.S. government wound up with well-deserved egg on its face…
THE PRO-PEACE WOMEN OF AMERICA
By Michael Collins Piper. Most court historians—including feminists—would rather have you forget these ladies ever existed. But the fact is that American women—many of them mothers—were very prominent in the movement to keep our boys out of the Old World’s incessant wars. We owe these ladies a debt of gratitude…
MONTANA’S ROLE IN NON-INTERVENTIONISM
By Michael Collins Piper. The Big Sky Country, in the news not long ago because of the Freemen and a terrorist who was known as the Unabomber, has traditionally been a homeland for patriots, pacifists and non-interventionists. A new book by an up-and-coming historian tells the tale of Montana’s prominent personalities before and during World War II…
AMERICA’S MONEY HAS BEEN UNDERMINED: PART 2
By Gordon Leitch JR. The Founding Fathers who framed the U.S. Constitution thought they had shut and barred the door against paper money. Here is how their plan for a currency of specie was sabotaged. Second of two installments…
CENSORSHIP IN ‘DEMOCRATIC’ GERMANY TODAY
By Germar Rudolf. Anyone who questions the court historians’ view of World War II in Germany today is considered guilty of sedition. But is book burning and witch-hunting really the best answer to what the authorities consider to be “thought crimes”?
LITTLE-KNOWN FACTORS BEHIND THE POGROMS OF OLD RUSSIA
By R.N. Terrall. Why did the enraged Russian peasants rise up again and again against their Jewish neighbors? Was it simply a case of irrational “anti-Semitism”? Or did it have something to do with the repeated attempts to assassinate various czars, in which, seemingly, the overwhelming majority of the plotters happened to be Jewish?
NATIONAL SOCIALISM & CHRISTIANITY
By Rev. Thomas D. Schwartz. At times, some German Nazi leaders seemed to promote the heathen faith of their ancestors, while other top Nazis were devout atheists. Yet, others of the leadership were staunch Christians. What was the overall policy of the party toward the Christian churches? A man of the cloth takes a look at this controversy…
THE ENTENTE CORDIALE
By Vivian Bird. Superficially, the Entente Cordiale Treaty between England and France dealt only with matters concerning their colonial interests in Egypt, Morocco and Gibraltar. But at a deeper level, the pact marked a shift in British policy toward the containment of Germany…
THE EARLY DEVELOPMENT OF NORTHERN EUROPE
By Vera Stark. Were stone-age Northern Europeans oafish primitives, as cartoonists like to depict them? Or did these “cavemen” actually possess a highly developed culture? Evidence suggests they were ahead of their contemporaries in the Near East, contrary to the now-discredited dogma of “ex oriente lux.” These people were not mere painted savages…
COULD MORE “HOLOCAUST” VICTIMS HAVE BEEN SAVED?
By Geoff Muirden. Is it true, as many court historians now say, that the Allies could have done more to save the Jews and others from Nazi persecution? One establishment historian is willing to question that thesis in his book… A review.
THE ALLIES BREAK THE PRELIMINARY PEACE PACT OF 1918
By Joseph Frey. The Allies of World War I made a deal with Germany to end the war: They would arrange for peace based on the Fourteen Points of President Woodrow Wilson. But as soon as the Germans disarmed themselves, suddenly the deal was off…
