An upcoming Israeli film that sympathetically portrays a group of Jewish terrorists who attempted to murder millions of German civilians by poisoning their water supply is enjoying uncritical publicity in Zionist media. The film, "Plan A," is based on a true story that director Yoav Paz extensively researched through recently unveiled testimony as well as... Read More

I came of age during the late Cold War Era, and while the possibility of nuclear war was regarded as horrifying, it was hardly unthinkable, being the subject of countless films and stories and with the rival U.S. and Soviet arsenals regularly compared in newspapers and magazines. However, biological warfare did indeed seem unthinkable. Back... Read More
There is the old adage: A picture is worth a thousand words. Well, grit your teeth, comrade, and click on this link. Behold a snapshot of infamy that’s worth enough words to fill a multi-volume encyclopedia with the title: The 3 C’s of our Ruling Class: Collusion, Corruption, Coercion. The photo captures Eleanor Roosevelt mugging... Read More
WHEN WE DISCUSS THE HOLOCAUST and Hitler’s slaughter of six million European Jews, we often forget the fact that the Holocaust had other victims as well, namely the Palestinians, whose country was taken from them. They were innocent victims as the world sought to make a place for Jews who had been displaced by the... Read More

There can be no complete understanding of John Kennedy without some understanding of his father, Joseph Patrick Kennedy, for this is where he came from, not only in his own eyes and those of his friends, but in the eyes of his enemies too. The same is true for his brother Robert, of course. I... Read More
Israel seems upset by a new Polish law that sets a 30-year deadline for Jews to recover seized property. The legislation is yet to be approved by Poland’s senate, yet Israeli officials already refer to it as the “Holocaust law.” They insist that it is ‘immoral’ and ‘a disgrace.’ Last week Israeli Minister of Foreign...

Yesterday marked the 80th anniversary of Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union, which constituted the central turning point of the Second World War. Given the striking recent reversal by the bulk of our mainstream political and media establishment on the supposed origins of the Covid virus, I'd like to pass along another... Read More
In my articles ( ) based on David Irving’s and Viktor Suvorov’s WWII histories and Ron Unz’s article, “Understanding World War II” ( ), I pointed out that historians have falsified the history of WWII. Others have taken up the theme, not always honestly acknowledging their indebtedness to Irving and Suvorov. In his review of... Read More
History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. Karl Marx's comment came to mind as President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson sought to equate their tete-a-tete at the G7 confab in Cornwall, England, to the Atlantic Charter conference of 80 years ago. Those were historic days, to which these days cannot compare.... Read More
Book Review: Christophe Dolbeau, Les Parias; Fascistes, pseudo-Fascistes et mal-Pensants, p.600, (Akribeia, 2021). The portrayal of the Fascist legacy has been in a full demonizing swing ever since the end of World War II. Despite their claims of objectivity, modern professors of political ideas bear resemblance to ancient Hellenic bards with their surreal mythmaking orations.... Read More

Eighty years ago last month, the Axis powers invaded the former Yugoslavia during the Second World War. A new Serbian film, Dara of Jasenovac, depicts the systematic extermination of Serbs which followed under the Nazi-puppet government of the Independent State of Croatia. Despite consultation with reputable historians during production and a screenplay based upon witness... Read More
Years ago concerned with Washington’s growing provocation of Russia, I made the remark in a column that Hitler, like Napoleon, destroyed himself by marching off into Russia. I suggested we not repeat the folly. Two readers corrected me. They informed me that Hitler had no choice. Hitler’s decision was not based on hubris or miscalculation.... Read More

A review of Sean McMeekin, Stalin’s War: A New History of World War II
On Sunday morning June 22, 1941, driven by his hatred of “Judeo-Bolshevism” and his insatiable greed for Lebensraum, Hitler treacherously broke his pact of non-aggression with Stalin and launched the invasion of the Soviet Union. Caught off guard and badly commanded, the Red Army was overwhelmed. But thanks to the heroic resistance of the Russian... Read More
Julius Streicher at the witness stand before the Nuremberg “International Military Tribunal”
In the aftermath of World War II, the governments of the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain and France established an “International Military Tribunal” (IMT) to punish surviving leaders of Third Reich Germany. Its much publicized “Trial of the Major War Criminals” met and deliberated in Nuremberg from November 1945 to October 1946. Of the... Read More

Just this month, Kevin Barrett wrote about our cultural breakdown through the prism of Dostoevsky’s Demons. Also at Unz, Mike Whitney began his article about the Covid vaccines with a quotation from Milton’s Paradise Lost, “Which way I fly is hell; myself am hell; And in the lowest deep a lower deep, Still threat’ning to...

I was born in the spring of 1939. I was a few days shy of 5 months old when Germany invaded Poland on September 1. The British and French governments responded to the invasion by declaring war on Germany, thus initiating World War II. Germany always gets the blame. Germany’s invasion of Poland is always...

Yesterday (March 8, 2021) I reported that my conclusion from David Irving’s two volume Churchill’s War (a third volume is expected) is that Washington fought World War II against the British. Confirmation of this is provided by Michael Hudson’s book, Super Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of American Empire, whose expanded 50th-anniversary edition is to be... Read More
In the United States the feel good explanation is that the war was about making freedom and democracy safe. In actual fact there were many agendas at play, and they had next to nothing to do with freedom and democracy. World War II Has many origins. For Germany the war originated in the Versailles Treaty... Read More
For the longest time the most widely read article on this website was “Germany Did Not Start World War II.” This article has been moved into second place by “The Proof Is In: The Election Was Stolen.” The third most widely read article is “Whites Were Slaves In North Africa Before Blacks Were Slaves In...

At the beginning of this month, I'd released eBook versions of my American Pravda and Meritocracy article collections, each running a hefty 300,000 words or more, and together containing nearly all my published writings of the last thirty years, with the bulk of the material having been produced in the last few. The response was... Read More
There are several different approaches to the study of the pathology of White guilt, including linguistic, historical and religious. One needs, however, to critically look at this faulty verbal construct first, a construct which first appeared in America several decades ago, and which has been championed in the media and academia ever since. At first... Read More

Several years ago I published a hardcover collection of my more substantial articles, entitled The Myth of American Meritocracy and Other Essays. More recently, various people had suggested that I produce a similar collection of my American Pravda articles, so I've now done so in an eBook format. The full title is Our American Pravda...

Academic Stephen Wertheim's new book shines revealing light on the birth of US global supremacy, just as it reaches its...
As the Exceptional Empire gets ready to brave a destructive – and self-destructive – new cycle, with dire, unforeseen consequences bound to reverberate across the world, now more than ever it is absolutely essential to go back to the imperial roots. The task is fully accomplished by Tomorrow, the World: The Birth of U.S. Global... Read More
On October 3, 1998, Pope John Paul II beatified Alojzije Cardinal Stepinac at the national shrine of Marija Bistrica in front of 500,000 Croats.1 The next step was canonization. On February 10, 2014, the memorial of Blessed Stepinac, Cardinal Angelo Amato, Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints, announced that the canonization... Read More

With the near-universal demonization of the Third Reich, historians have developed a blind spot for the genesis of German anti-Semitism. Michael Kellogg, in his 2005 work The Russian Roots of Nazism, sheds a sharp light on this topic and points our attention eastward. He reveals how the post-World War I atrocities of the Soviet Union... Read More
The presidential postelection period unfolding now in the US is having a big impact on the political class in Europe. Historically speaking this is nothing new. Every politician in Europe knows that any major political change in the US is bound to have, the day after, an effect on his own decision-making policy and likely... Read More
For much of my life I have been curious about the world, not so much wanting to know things as to understand them and, at various times I would attempt to satisfy that desire - usually by devouring every available book on the subject. I would read every book at the library that seemed useful... Read More
In November, 1944, US Secretary of War, Henry Stimson snapped to the US Secretary of the Treasury that he was worn out “from working the last two weeks on the Pearl Harbor report to keep out anything that might hurt the President.” — Churchill’s War, Vol. II December 7, 2020. Today is the 79th anniversary... Read More
Just weeks after finishing a two and a half year prison sentence for "Holocaust denial," 92-year-old Ursula Haverbeck has been convicted again by German courts, this time for an interview she gave in 2018 that affirmed her view that Jews were not systematically killed during World War II and that the gas chambers at Auschwitz...

A particularly rare issue of Signal.
There is a striking contrast for the historian between how popular culture portrays National Socialism and how the historians present it. In popular culture, the portrayal is uniformly negative, to the point that National Socialism becomes a wholly incomprehensible phenomenon. At the same time, Nazi aesthetics and themes - whether or not these are framed... Read More

Last month, Townhall.com columnist Marina Medvin published a column about letters allegedly written by Leon Morin, a 29-year old soldier who helped liberate the Dachau concentration camp in 1945. In his letters, Morin made a number of eyebrow-raising claims about Dachau—claims that Medvin swallowed uncritically: The camp contained a gas chamber disguised as a shower... Read More
Not long ago, there was a country whose people were suffering a devastating moral, political and economic crisis. Before the crash, they were certain of their place in the world; theirs was, even in the opinion of their adversaries, an exceptionally prosperous, powerful and politically vibrant civilization whose culture had disproportionate influence around the planet....

This entire year, I’ve been a vagabond, but you, too, have been on a journey, away from just about everything you’ve known, into the vaguest of futures, and we’re just getting started. Steered by obscured hands, we’re whipped around blind bends, towards a reality we have no part in shaping. Yesterday, my friend Chuck Orloski... Read More
The true origins of the two World Wars form a crucial part of our modern history, the truths of which have been deleted from all our history books and replaced with mythology blaming Germany. This article is a minor attempt to set straight part of the record. From the Introduction to the article 'The Anger... Read More

The German Leader’s Reply to the American President’s Public Challenge
Of the many speeches made by Adolf Hitler during his lifetime, certainly one of the most important was his address of April 28, 1939. It was also very probably the most eagerly anticipated and closely followed speech of the time, with many millions of people around the world listening to it live on radio or... Read More
The Derbs' weekly Netflix rentals this month included two not-bad movies — better than our recent average. Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, reviewed by our Steve Sailer at TakiMag was the better of the two. I didn't enjoy it as much as Steve did; but then, I don't know anything like as much as... Read More
There is a very real attempt to rewrite history as we speak. A history that is at the root of what organises our world today, for it is understood that who controls the past, will have control over our present and our future. This attempt to rewrite history is of the most paramount significance because... Read More
I first read the memoirs of General Heinz Guderian, Germany’s foremost tank commander during the Second World War, while I was still in high school. I have to say that Guderian’s whole deportment immediately appealed to me. Here was a man of great dynamism, loyalty, and innovation; one who understood service and command, and who... Read More
Last November, Moshe Loth testified as a plaintiff in the trial of wheelchair-bound nonagenarian Bruno Dey. Loth accused him of being an accessory to his torture and grandmother's gassing during the "Holocaust" at the Stutthof concentration camp in the final years of World War II. Loth stated that his mother Helene became pregnant with him... Read More

Introduction It shouldn't be a secret, though it still seems to be, that neither of the two World Wars were started (or desired) by Germany, but were the creation of a group of European Zionist Jews with the stated intent of the total destruction of Germany.

Politico Europe reports: President Kaczynski is most memorable outside Poland as the twin brother of fellow politician Lech Kaczynski, who sadly died in the Smolensk air disaster in 2010. Polish state television, which is acting as a cheerleader for Duda, has hit similar tones
The issue of reparations and other compensation has been much in the news of late, most particularly in relationship to possible payments to descendants of slaves in the United States to compensate them for their disadvantages brought about by what is claimed to be a persisting racist culture in the country. There is, of course,... Read More

It has been 75 years since the surrender of Nazi Germany and the end of World War II in Europe. Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Russia postponed its annual Victory Day celebrations last month due to the health crisis as did other former Soviet states, with the sole exception of Belarus which went ahead with...

This story has all the requirements to qualify for a conspiracy theory, and may not make sense to you without some background for context. Prior to the US entering WWI, an enormous years-long anti-German propaganda campaign was unleashed by the Creel Commission, headed by Walter Lippman and Edward Bernays, the latter being a nephew of...

President Donald Trump claimed last week that the US and Britain had won World War II. This was a shameless lie and distortion of the facts. Many Americans and Canadians like to believe their nations won the war in Europe and give insufficient recognition to the decisive Soviet role. Most Europeans would rather not think... Read More
Boston University's director of the Elie Wiesel archive, Bar-Ilan University’s Institute of Holocaust Research historian Joel Rappel has discovered the origin of the infamous "6,000,000" number: a 1944 meeting of Zionist pioneering organizations in what is now known as the state of Israel. For years, supporters of the Holocaust narrative have held that the number... Read More

“Fear” is the first word of The Plot against America, the Philip Roth novel which just got re-cycled as an HBO series by David Simon and Ed Burns, creators of The Corner, The Wire, and Generation Kill. “Fear,” Roth tells us, “presides over these memories, a perpetual fear.” The memories in question are Roth’s, of...

I have a distinct dislike for the journalistic class as a whole. They do not so much report news as collectively make the news, according to a peculiar pack mentality, which combines commonly-agreed designated good guys and bad guys, but also sometimes brutal and erratic shifts collective opinion, not according to the whims of an...

Some readers have trouble with long articles. When my recent review of the second volume of David Irving’s Churchill’s War hit 2,500 words, I broke it off. Among the interesting information left unreported are Churchill’s cover up of the Katyn massacre by the Soviets of thousands of Polish officers, a coverup continued as late as... Read More

All truth-tellers are denounced, and most end up destroyed. Truth seldom serves the agendas of powerful interests. The one historian from whom you can get the unvarnished truth of World War II is David Irving. On the bookjackets of Irving’s books, the question is asked: What is real history? The answer is that real history... Read More
