A Book That Will Blow You Away and Your Mind Wide Open

While I was on my bike ride here in Scottsdale (July 27, 2017), thinking about the new Russia sanctions that had just been passed by the warmongers in Washington, what came to me was that I should revisit the book “The Iron Curtain Over America” by Colonel John Beaty. Col. Beaty worked in military intelligence during WW II. So he was an “insider” who was privy to the real story of what happened back then.

I remember that when I first read his account of it 20 years ago, it blew me away and my mind wide open. Because the book revealed who was really behind all these wars of the 20th century, and now also in the 21st century.

I was blown away anew when I saw during my search through the Truth in Media archives that I actually published my review of the book on this day – Aug 4, 1997. Twenty years ago on this day! Only Divine guidance could have arranged for such “coincidence” and serendipity.

So I took it as a sign that I need to share this book with all of you.

The book was written in 1951. I am enclosing below a PDF of the 1969 edition. At the time I read first the book – circa 1997 – it was practically extinct. The powers that be, who own and control most of the US lamestream media, typically Jewish, managed to have it effectively banned from the public libraries. I somehow secured this PDF copy. I don’t remember how. And I wrote several Truth in Media articles reviewing the book.

Like this one, https://www.truthinmedia.org/gvb/toc97-08.htm


Since that time, thanks to the Internet, the lamestream media monopoly and censorship has been broken. I discovered recently that this old book is now widely available online, including on Amazon.com.  Here’s an excerpt about it from Amazon.com:


A Book Review (1951)

By Bob Djurdjevic, Aug 4, 1997

The Iron Curtain Over America

By Col. John Beaty

This 1951 book by Col. John Beaty, a distinguished scholar and a U.S. military intelligence officer in World War II, warned Americans about an impending peril: Some 46 years ago, this patriotic American foresaw the threat which a Clinton-type “Amerika” would pose for the Christians in the United States, just as the Soviet state did for the Russian Christians.`


“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”

Jesus Christ, speaking in Jerusalem

PHOENIX, Aug 4, 1997 – A book by a former high-ranking U.S. military intelligence officer and a Columbia University historian covers the Zionist/Communist infiltration and subversion of America. It begins with early history of the Jews and ends in 1952.

Here is what some prominent Americans, Beaty’s contemporaries, had said about it:

Senator William A. Langer, former Chairman, Judiciary Committee: “I think it ought to be compulsory reading in every public school in America.”

Lt. Gen., George E. Stratemeyer, USAF Ret.: “I congratulate you on your book and the service you have performed for our country. If my health would permit it I would go on a continuous lecture tour gratis and preach your book and recommendations. My ‘Iron Curtain Over America’ will be on loan continuously and I intend to recommend its reading in every letter I write.

Lt. Gen. Edward M. Almond, US Army Ret.: “It is an inspiration to me to find an author with the courage and energy to research and to secure the publication of such information as you have assembled in order that the poorly informed average American may know wherein the real threats to our Country lurk. Your book is a magnificent contribution to those who would preserve our American ideals.”

Vice Admiral T. G. W. Settle, U.S.N. Ret.: “‘The Iron Curtain Over America’ is a most pertinent and excellently presented treatise on the cancer on our national set-up. “I hope this book has had, and will have, the widest possible dissemination, particularly to our leaders-in Washington, and in industry and the press,—and that our leaders who are “uncontaminated” will have their serious attention engaged by it.”

Lt., General P. A. Del Valle, USMC Ret.: “I am impelled to write to you to express my admiration of your great service to the Nation in writing this truly magnificent book. No American who has taken the oath of allegiance can afford to miss it, and I heartily recommend it as an honest and courageous dispeller of the fog of propaganda in which most minds seem to dwell.”


So if a U.S. Senator and four generals from four different branches of the U.S. military give a book such a ringing endorsement, chances are it’s a “must read,” right?

It is. But we have to warn you – it may also be a “musty read” for those of you who do manage to get a copy. For, the book is 46 years old. We’ve tried to find out what happened to the author – without success, as the publisher, Chestnut Mountain Books, Barboursville, VA, seems to be no longer in business. Considering the author’s age at the time he wrote the book (see the photo below which depicts a man in his 60s), it seems reasonable to presume that he has since died.

UPDATE Aug 4, 2017: Well, thanks to the internet, we can update this review now. Col. Beaty died on Sep 9, 1961. You can learn more about his life here – in Metamedia.

But his work lives on. For, much of what Col. Beaty wrote back in 1951, still applies today. Like the corruption of our political system by the leftist liberals. Or that the globalist U.N.

sympathizers attempts to Or the NWO’s assault on which seems to have lessened, in the last 46 years.

A Short Biographical

The author of The Iron Curtain Over America has written, or collaborated on, a dozen books. His texts have been used in more than seven hundred colleges and universities, and his historical novel, Swords in the Dawn, published originally in New York, had London and Australian editions, and was adopted for state-wide use in the public schools of Texas. His education (M.A., University of Virginia; Ph.D., Columbia University; post-graduate study, University of Montpellier, France ), his travel in Europe and Asia, and his five years with the Military Intelligence Service in World War II rounded out the background for the reading and research (1946-1951) which resulted in The Iron Curtain Over America.



John Beaty (circa 1951)

Col. Beaty, a distinguished scholar and a proud American, spent most of his life, including the five years of intensive research (1946-1951), gathering the information upon which this book is based. Keep in mind, therefore, that “The Iron Curtain Over America” is the culmination of serious research by a respected expert, not propaganda, such as the half-truths or outright falsehoods which the anti-Christian NWO has been feeding us. No wonder Sen. Langer said – the book “ought to be compulsory reading in every public school in America.”

Well… it isn’t. On the contrary. The book was hard to find. Which is why some of you may find this review a shocking revelation. And see what they didn’t tell us in the supposedly “liberal” public school education in America.


The friendly relationships between the United States and Germany existed not only on the governmental level but were cemented by close racial kinship. Not only is the basic blood stream of persons of English descent very nearly identical with that of Germans; in addition, nearly a fourth of the Americans of the early twentieth century were actually of German descent (Chapter IV, below).

Thus, in the early years of the twentieth century the American people admired Germany/ It was a strong nation, closely akin; and it was a Christian land, part Protestant and part Catholic, as America had been part Catholic since the Cavaliers leave to Virginia and the Puritans to New England.

Moreover, the old land of the Teutonic Knights led the world in music, in medicine, and in scholarship. The terms Prussia and Prussian, Germany and German had a most favorable connotation. (Page 7)

The “Russ” and the “Khazars”-Historical Enmities

The book opens up with a historical perspective of the distant region of the world which we today call European Russia. It explains how the Khazars, “a belligerent tribe of half-Mongolian people, similar to the modern Turks, conquered the territory of what is now Southern Russia.”

In the eighth or ninth century, Khazars’ leader wanted a religion for his pagan people. He adopted a form of the Jewish religion. Thereupon he and about 4,000 Khazars were circumcised.

Also in the Middle Ages, Viking warriors pushed from the Baltic area into the low hills west of Moscow. These immigrants from the North and West were principally “the ‘Russ’—a Varangian tribe in ancient annals considered to be related to the Swedes, Anglos, and Northmen.”

From the local Slavic tribes, they organized (c. 862) a state, known subsequently from their name as Russia, which embraced the territory of the upper Volga and Dnieper rivers and reached down the latter river to the Black Sea and to the Crimea. Russ and Slav languages, though quite different, had common Indo-Germanic origin. They accepted Christianity as their religion.

The “Russ” were absorbed into the Slav population which they organized into statehood. The people of the new state devoted themselves energetically to consolidating their territory and extending its boundaries. The Slavs, especially those in the area now known as the Ukraine, were engaged in almost constant warfare with the Khazars. Finally, by 1016 A.D., they destroyed the Khazar government and took a large portion of Khazar territory.

Relations between Slavs and the Judaized Khazars in their midst were never happy. The reasons were not racial—for the Slavs had absorbed many minorities—but were ideological (emphasis added). The original imported rabbis were zealots for the Babylonian Talmud, completed on December 2, 499. Their successors were in complete control of the political, social, and religious thought of their people. The intransigent attitude of the rabbis was increased by their realization that their power would be lost if their people accepted controls other than Talmudic. It has been frequently stated by writers on the subject that the “ghetto” was the work not of Russians or other Slavs, but of rabbis.

Under the Romanovs of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, there was no change in attitude toward the Judaized Khazars, who scorned Russian civilization and stubbornly refused to enter the fold of Christianity (emphasis added).

When Nicholas I died, his son Alexander II [reign, 1855-1881] decided to try a new way of winning the Khazar minority to willing citizenship in Russia. He granted his people, including the Khazars, so many liberties that he was called the “Czar Liberator.” His “reward” was death. The “Czar Liberator” was assassinated in St. Petersburg in 1881 by “a bomb thrown at his carriage.” Some of the assassins were of Jewish Khazar origin.

The “Russian Revolution” Was Not Russian At All

In Russia and abroad in the late nineteenth century, many Khazar Jews had been attracted to the writings of Karl Marx (1818-1883), partly, it seems, because he was Jewish in origin.

“On both paternal and maternal sides Karl Marx was descended from rabbinical families” (Univ. Jew. Encyc., Vol.VII, p. 289) (emphasis added).

The Marxist program of drastic controls, so repugnant to the free western mind, was no obstacle to the acceptance of Marxism by many Khazar Jews, for the Babylonian Talmud, under which they lived, had taught then to accept authoritarian dictation on

everything from their immorality to their trade practices. Since the Talmud contained more than 12,000 controls, the regimentation of Marxism was acceptable— provided that the Khazar politician, like the Talmudic rabbis, exercised the power of dictatorship (emphasis added).

Various elements of this restless aggressive minority nurtured the amazing quadruple aims:

  1. International Communism
  2. Seizure of power in Russia
  3. Zionism
  4. Continued migration to America (with a fixed purpose to retain their nationalistic separatism.)

The name Bolshevik (bol|{evik) means majority (from Russian “Bolshe,” the larger). It commemorates the fact that at the Brussels-London conference of the party in late 1902 and in early 1903, the violent Marxist program of Lenin was adopted by a 25 to 23 vote. The less violent Menshevik (men|{evik) Marxists (meaning the minority of 23 who lost the vote), faded from the picture after revolution started in October, 1917. After 1918, the Bolsheviki called their organization the Communist Party.

In 1917, the Germans, realizing that he would be a troublemaker for their WW I enemy, Russia, passed Lenin and his party in a sealed train from Switzerland to the Russian border.

In Lenin’s sealed train, “out of a list of 165 names published, 23 are Russian, 3 Georgian, 4 Armenian, 1 German, and 128 Jewish” (The Surrender of an Empire, Nesta H. Webster, Boswell Printing and Publishing Co. Ltd., London, 1931). [i.e., 78% were Jewish].

“At about the same time, Trotsky (Leon Bronshtein from Brooklyn, NY) arrived from the United States, followed by over 300 Jews from the East End of New York and joined up with the Bolshevik Party.”

According to the data furnished by the Soviet press, out of 556 important functionaries of the Bolshevik State. . . in 1918-1919, 17 Russians, 2 Ukrainians, 11 Armenians, 35 Letts, 15 Germans, 1 Hungarian,10 Georgians, 3 Poles, 3 Finns, 1 Karaim, 457 Jews (i.e., 82% were Jewish].).

The triumphant Khazars, aided by other “converts” to Communism, strengthened their grasp on Russia by a succession of “purges” in which many millions of Russians lost their lives.

As the decades passed by—after the fateful year 1917—Judaized Khazars kept a firm hand on the helm of the government in the occupied land of Russia. In due time they built a bureaucracy to their hearts‘ desire. The government – controlled Communist press ―issued numerous and violent denunciations of anti-Semitic episodes, either violence or discriminations.

Also, “in 1935 a court ruled that anti-semitism in Russia was a penal offense” (Univ. Jew Encyc., Vol. I, p. 386). Among top-flight leaders prominent in the middle of the twentieth century. Stalin, Kaganovich, Beria, Molotov, and Litvinoff all have Jewish blood, or are married to Jewesses.

Clinton and FDR: Birds of a Feather

The new rulers of Russia promptly and effectively penetrated the countries of Western Europe, Canada and the United States. Their first spectacular triumph was (President) Roosevelt’s recognition, less than nine months after his inauguration, of the Soviet government of Russia. A lengthy article, “Moscow’s RED LETTER DAY in American History,” by William La Varre in the American Legion Magazine (August, 1951) says the move was arranged by “Litvinoff, of deceitful smiles,” and by “Henry Morgenthau and Dean Acheson, both proteges of Felix Frankfurter.”

Acheson, sometimes referred to as the “Frankfurter’s boy,” was one of Stalin’s paid American lawyers. “Acheson was on Stalin’s payroll even before the Soviet Union was recognized by the United States,” writes Felix Wittner in the American Mercury magazine (April, 1952). Yet that did not prevent Acheson from becoming President Truman’s Secretary of State.

[TiM editor: Switching for the moment back to America of 1997, just as Acheson was a paid lobbyist for Stalin, today we have the likes of Henry Kissinger et. al. lobbying for the Communist China. Add to it a high concentration of Jewish-Americans in the Clinton administration’s foreign policy and defense teams, and one begins to appreciate why we may have greater reasons to worry today about the lives of our children, than did the Americans in the 1930s. Luckily, we have the benefit of hindsight they didn’t have. Forewarned-forearmed? Let us hope…]

Another similarity between the Clinton and FDR is a low regard for the U.S. Constitution which the two presidents had sworn to protect. FDR, for example, made an actual treaty with the Soviets, giving them the right to establish a communist embassy and consulates in the United States, granting full diplomatic immunities for Stalin’s agents, the bloody bolsheviki – all without the approval of Congress!

Sound familiar? Just as the Clinton administration signed the Dayton agreement in 1995, for example, and committed the American troops to Bosnia – without the approval of Congress! And has been cozying up to China in recent years.

It would not surprise us, therefore, if Manhattan’s West Side Highway (now known as the Henry Hudson Drive) became the Bill Clinton Drive in a couple of decades from now, completing a symbolic conquest of New York by the “reds” – from East to West. (The East River Drive, which passes by the United Nations site, was renamed FDR Drive after Roosevelt’s death.)

A more frightening thought, however, is – how many Americans may have to die before Clinton gets his name on a New York freeway? If the nation’s casualties during the FDR years are any indication, we are in for a real bloodbath. The American Christians may be 46 years closer to their Holocaust than they were when this book was written, as the anti-Christian NWO wages neo-colonial wars.]

The “Unnecessary War:” How America PROVOKED the War with Hitler

In a speech before the Dallas, Texas Alumni Club of Columbia University on Armistice Day, 1950, General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower stated that as Supreme Commander in Europe he made a habit of asking American soldiers why they were fighting the Germans and 90% of the boys said they had no idea.

The American soldier is not the only one who wondered and is still wondering about the purposes of World War II.” Winston Churchill has called it “The Unnecessary War.” In view of our legacy of deaths, debt, and danger, Churchill’s term may be considered an understatement.

In late July, 1933, an International Jewish Boycott Conference (New York Times, August 7, 1933) was held in Amsterdam to devise new means of bringing Germany to heel. Samuel Untermeyer of New York presided over the Boycott Conference and was elected President of the World Jewish Economic Federation.


Yet, the 1930s economic sanctions against Germany were a benign precursor of the NWO’s murderous economic sanctions of the 1990s, which killed millions of innocent civilians in Serbia, Bosnia, Iraq, North Korea, etc..

Back in the U.S. from Europe, Untermeyer described the planned Jewish move against Germany as a “holy war – “a war that must be waged unremittingly” (speech over WABC, as printed in New York Times of August 7, 1933).

A “holy war that must be waged unremittingly” against the “gentiles?” Keep in mind that was back in 1933, when Hitler was still a relative newcomer on the political map of the world.


By ALTZAR – commenting on “THE IRON CURTAIN OVER AMERICA” – BOOK REVIEW – August 4, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2wY
This war was very much avoidable. As was the use of atomic bombs. FDR/Truman could have dropped the bomb on some uninhabited Japanese island which would have had the same effect on Japanese leaders. Instead,, they chose a maximum destruction of innocent civilian lives. Twice. Once in Hiroshima and on Aug 9 in Nagasaki (another 60,000-80,000 people killed).
In 1937 and again in 1938 the German government made “a sincere effort to improve relations with the United States, only to be rebuffed.” The U.S. Government‟s alleged reason was “a fear of domestic political reactions in this country unfavorable to the Administration.” (Page 31)
ALTZAR: And who was FDR afraid of?
“With the latter country (Germany we had already declared that “no quarter” economic war recommended by the President of the World Jewish Economic Federation, and now in unquestionably hostile terms our President declared a political war. In his diary, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal recorded that he was told by Joseph P. Kennedy, our Ambassador to Britain, that Prime Minister Chamberlain “stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into the war” (The Forrestal Diaries, ed. by Walter Millis, The Viking Press, New York, 1951, pp. 121-122). (Page 31).
Today (1997), it is interesting to note that the Muslims use the same hateful rallying cry for their “holy war” (the “jihad”) against the “infidels.” As did the Christian Crusaders against the Muslims a thousand years ago.
Rabbis, mullahs, imams, priests… they are all birds of the same feather who preach hate instead of love.
Religion has been at the root of most wars in the last 2,000 years. Religion has been the fuel of the world leaders quest for power and domination over others. Logic 101, therefore, would suggest that TO ACHIEVE WORLD PEACE, WE MUST DO AWAY WITH WORLD RELIGIONS.

It would appear, therefore, that one thing the “Semites” (both Jews and Muslims) have in common is a zeal to exterminate the “less worthy” humans of other persuasions – be it other Semites (respectively) or Christians. Theirs seems to be the philosophy of exclusion and separatism, not of inclusion and tolerance. Which is why they preach inclusion and tolerance in America – in the form of globalism and multiculturalism, while practicing exclusion and separatism while – by enslaving the Christians or other non-Semites.]

War seems to have suited the purposes of the powerful Judaized Khazars element, dominant in the inner circles of the Democratic Party in America, Col. Beaty says. They regarded with enthusiasm the killing of as many as possible of the native stock Americans of English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh, German, Dutch, Scandinavian, Latin, and Slavic descent.

This non-Christian power bloc therefore endorsed “Unconditional Surrender” and produced the Morgenthau Plan, both of which were certain to stiffen and prolong the German resistance at the cost of many more American lives, and many more German lives, too.

Unfortunately, President Roosevelt became obsessed with the idea of killing Germans [and Japanese? Bob Dj.] rather than defeating Hitler [or Japan]. Perhaps taking his cue from his Commander-in-Chief—a term Roosevelt loved—General Mark Clark told American soldiers of the Fifth Army that, “it is open season on the Anzio bridgehead. There is no limit to the number of Germans you can kill” (New York Times, February 13, 1944).

Such a stress on “killing” or “kill” rather than on a “cause” or on “victory” is definitely at variance with the traditions of Western Christian civilization, Col. Beaty says.. It is also costly in the life blood of America, for “killing” is a two-edged sword. An enemy who would surrender in the face of certain defeat will fight on to the end when truculently promised a “killing”—and more Americans will die with him.

[No wonder some 75 million humans perished in the 20th century alone, according to Gen. Alexander Lebed, a former Russian presidential candidate, as a result of such policies.]

“Where Did Hitler Get His Six Million Jews?”

A Reuters dispatch of March 13, 1951 from Tel Aviv (Washington Times-Herald) stated that notes delivered yesterday [March 12] in Washington, London, and Paris and to the Soviet Minister at Tel Aviv urged the occupying powers of Germany not to “hand over full powers to any German government” without express reservations for the payment of reparations to Israel in the sum of $1,500,000,000.

This compensation was said to be for 6,000,000 Jews killed by Hitler. This figure has been used repeatedly. But if one consults statistics and ponders the known facts, Col. Beaty wonders how it was arrived at.

First of all, back in 1939, he says, there were only 600,000 Jews out of Germany’s 69 million population. The World Almanac for 1940 gives the world’s Jewish population as 15,319,359.

According to The World Almanac for 1949, the number of Jews in the world was 15,713,638. If the World Almanac figures are correct, the world’s Jewish population did not decrease in the war decade, but showed a small increase (emphasis added).

Such wide discrepancies prompted the author to ask the question of “where Hitler got the 6,000,000 Jews he is said to have killed?” Meanwhile, some 5,000,000 Germans were unaccounted for—4,000,000 civilians, and 1,000,000 soldiers who never returned from Soviet labor camps, he noted. [Over 20 million Russians and other Christians also perished in WW II].

But just in case you may suspect from the preceding that Col. Beaty may have been some sort of a “closet Nazi sympathizer,” Beaty also wrote that state controls “may produce a dictator. And once a dictator is in power no one (as shown in the case of Hitler) can chart his mad course.”

Appeasing Stalin

The Prime Minister of Britain, the Right Honorable Winston Churchill, was alarmed at President Roosevelt’s silly infatuation for Stalin and the accompanying mania for serving the interests of world Communism. “It would be a measureless disaster if Russian barbarism overlaid the culture and independence of the ancient states of Europe,” he wrote on Oct. 21, 1942, to the British Foreign Secretary, Anthony Eden. Churchill also wanted an invasion of the Balkans, which Roosevelt and Marshall opposed apparently to please Stalin (emphasis added).

Col. Beaty wonders why, except for appeasing Stalin, were the Allied forces devoted to strategically unimportant Italy, the winning of which left the Alps between our armies and Germany.

Why did they not land, for instance, in the Salonika area – a springboard for the historic Vardar Valley invasion route? This route leads without major geographic obstacles through Yugoslavia to the heart of Europe. It would have helped the Allies defeat Hitler without giving Stalin all of Christian Eastern Europe as a compensation. Officially, Gen. Marshall stated to a Congressional Committee that the “purpose” of the Italian campaign was to draw “German forces away from the Russian front.” (emphasis added).

At Potsdam (international conference), Truman maintaining intact Roosevelt’s iron curtain of secret diplomacy, played fast and loose with American honor and security. He agreed to an enlargement of the boundaries of a Poland already delivered by Roosevelt and Churchill to Russian control through addition of areas that had for centuries been occupied by Germans or people of German origin.


Some 14 million persons were brutally expelled from their homes with the confiscation of virtually all their property, Col. Beaty notes. Only 10 million finally reached the American, French, and British zones of Germany. Four million mysteriously disappeared. Thus Truman approved one of the greatest mass deportations in history, which for sheer cruelty is a dark page in the annals of history.

[Nowadays, we would abhor such policy as “ethnic cleansing.”]

Warning to Americans: The U.N. Charter is NOT the U.S. Constitution

Patriotic Americans should be warned against spurious attempts to draw parallels between the United States Constitution and United Nations regulations. The Constitution, with its first ten amendments, was designed specifically to curb the power of the Federal government and to safeguard the rights of states and individuals, the author writes.

On the other hand, the United Nations appears to have the goal of destroying many of the sovereign rights of the member nations and of putting individuals in jeopardy everywhere— particularly in the United States.

We must not forget the iron curtain over America, which has blacked out the truth that Russia was founded by the Russians, who were men of the West, men from Scandinavia, whence sprang the whole Nordic race, including the great majority of all Western Europeans, Col. Beaty warns.

Consequently, we should never speak in a derogatory manner of Russia or Russians. “Each time we attack ‘Russia’ or ‘the Russians’ when we mean the Bolshevik hierarchy, or speak contemptuously of ‘Asiatic hordes,’ or identify world communism as a ‘Slav menace,’ we are providing grist for the Kremlin mills,” he says.

Finally, we must not forget that leaders in Russia since 1917 have been not patriotic Russians, but are a hated coalition of renegade Russians with the remnants of Russia’s old territorial and ideological enemy, the Judaized Khazars.


[A final editorial note to the Truth in Media readers: For any of you who are Jewish- Americans, or of Jewish descent anywhere else in the world, and who may be tempted to switch to “auto-pilot” and accuse us of anti-Semitism for having done this book review – don’t!

Nothing would be further from the truth than levying such an accusation at us. This writer is a Serbian-American. During WW II, many Jews were saved from the Nazi pogroms by the Serbs, who often times risked or lost their lives doing it. They include the Jewish-Americans, like Maj. Richard Felman, USAF Ret., whose life the Serbs saved along with the lives of over 500 other American pilots’ (see TIM GW Bulletin 97-07,7/22/97).

Our sole purpose in reviewing this book review was merely to show the truth which our public school system has withheld from us. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”]

And has just done it again with Donald Trump and Russia

By the time the American president Lyndon B. Johnson declared he would not seek the second term in 1968, he had become a poster boy for Vietnam warmongers. Antiwar protesters had even written songs vilifying him for entering and expanding the war. Like this one:


Johnson had a button nose, when first he went to congress
Now it's long and crooked like a politicians promise. 
Hey, hey LBJ! How many kids did you kill today? 
We're gonna take your toys away and bring our soldiers home now.

But as history has shown 50 years later, LBJ was unfairly blamed for the Vietnam war escalation. The real “deep state” dark horse and warmonger who pushed for it an deceived the president was Defense Secretary, Robert McNamara.

And it all started on this day – Aug 2, 1964 – in the Gulf of Tonkin.


The destroyer USS Maddox, while performing a signals intelligence patrol as part of DESOTO operations, was pursued by three North Vietnamese Navy torpedo boats of the 135th Torpedo Squadron. Maddox fired three warning shots and the North Vietnamese boats then attacked with torpedoes and machine gun fire. Maddox called in air support.

One U.S. aircraft was damaged, three North Vietnamese torpedo boats were damaged, and four North Vietnamese sailors were killed, with six more wounded. There were no U.S. casualties. Maddox“was unscathed except for a single bullet hole from a Vietnamese machine gun round”.

Get this? One bullet hole (!) in a US ship. That’s all it took to start a war that cost at least 1.3 million lives, 58,000 of the American.

Well, it actually took more than that. It took deception. The Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, a key player in the “deep state” of the 1960s, a man picked appointed to that post by JFK, withheld vital information from LBJ while urging the president to start bombing North Vietnam.

LBJ resisted. He did not want to escalate the war.

Then McNamara literally invented a second attack in the Gulf of Tonkin on Aug 4, 1964. That incident never happened, as McNamara admitted 30 years later in a “mea culpa” book. Nevertheless, McNamara used a bogus intelligence report to urge LBJ to order the bombing of North Vietnam. This time, LBJ acquiesced.

The outcome of these two “incidents” was the passage by Congress of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which granted President Lyndon B. Johnson the authority to assist any Southeast Asian country whose government was considered to be jeopardized by “communist aggression”. The resolution served as Johnson’s legal justification for deploying U.S. conventional forces and the commencement of open warfare against North Vietnam.

And that’s how the Vietnam war started in earnest for the United States of America. Based on a deception and a fabrication by Robert McNamara, the real poster boy of the Vietnam warmongers.


Six weeks after the Tonkin Gulf bombing, on September 18, 1964, McNamara and Dean Rusk (secretary of state) claimed yet another North Vietnamese attack on a U.S. destroyer in Gulf and tried to get LBJ to approve another retaliatory strike.  But a skeptical LBJ told McNamara, “You just came in a few weeks ago and said they’re launching an attack on us – they’re firing at us, and we got through with the firing and concluded maybe they hadn’t fired at all.”

After LBJ was elected in November 1964, the president continued to resist a unanimous formal policy recommendation of his advisers that he should begin the systematic bombing of North Vietnam.  He stubbornly argued for three more months that there was no point in bombing the North as long as the South was divided and unstable.

Johnson also refused to oppose the demoralized South Vietnamese government negotiating a neutralist agreement with the Communists, much to his advisers’ chagrin. McGeorge Bundy later recalled in an oral history interview that he concluded that Johnson was “coming to a decision…to lose” in South Vietnam.

LBJ only capitulated to the pressure from his advisers after McNamara and Bundy wrote a joint letter to him in late January 1965 making it clear that responsibility for U.S. “humiliation” in South Vietnam would rest squarely on his shoulders if he continued his policy of “passivity”.  Fearing, with good reason, that his own top national security advisers would turn on him and blame him for the loss of South Vietnam, LBJ eventually began the bombing of North Vietnam.

He was then sucked into the maelstrom of the Vietnam War, which he defended publicly and privately, leading to the logical but mistaken conclusion that he had been the main force behind the push for war all along (for more see The Real Tonkin Gulf Deception   https://goo.gl/yuR7D2).


So it is sad and tragic that the US warmongers and “death merchants” prevailed in a tug of war with a sitting president. And it is good to reflect upon that on this Aug 2, 53 years after the first Gulf of Tonkin incident.

But there is another reason why we should be reminded of that. The same dark forces of the US “death merchants” and “deep state” warmongers are at work today, trying to force Donald Trump to gin up another war. This time with Russia, a war nobody can win.

And they also did that with Ronald Reagan in 1983, as this writer pointed out in this Oct 23, 2016 post, wandering if the same would happen with Trump, if he is elected (see LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD… – BEIRUT EMBASSY BOMBING: REAGAN’S BAPTISM BY FIRE AND HUMILIATION BY NEW WORLD ORDER’S FIFTH COLUMN IN HIS CABINET – Will the Same Happen with Trump When He Is Elected? – https://is.gd/mMcRHn).

ALTZAR (Oct 23, 2016): Ronald Reagan was the only US president in the last half a century who was not a card-carrying member of the globalist New World Order organizations, such as the Council for Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg Group, for example. Like Donald Trump, he was elected because he was an outspoken critic of such establishment “elites.”

What happened in the aftermath of the Beirut embassy bombing was a perfect example of how these New World Order globalists deal with a popular outsider. They muzzle him by surrounding him with loyal members of their societies which would advance their agendas and interests no matter what a sitting president may think.

And it is happening again. Fifty three years after the Gulf of Tonkin incident new generations of US warmongers are trying to turn another president. Just as they did with LBJ and Reagan.

Will they succeed?


Trump signs the sanctions bill

We now have a lame duck president walking with a tail between his legs

Yes. Just minutes ago (11:20 AM PDT), I read a dispatch from Washington that indeed, Donald Trump signed this morning the new Russia sanctions legislation into law (see https://on.rt.com/8jcz). And like every lame duck president with a tail between his legs, he added a lament naively that the American people would not notice his betrayal, and how he buckled under to the pressure of the New World Order warmongers:

Today, I have signed into law HR 3364, the ‘Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.’ While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russia, this legislation is significantly flawed,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House.

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions,” Trump said.

The biggest problem with the bill is that it “encroaches on the executive branch’s authority to negotiate,” which will make it harder for the US to strike good deals and will “drive China, Russia, and North Korea much closer together,” according to the president.


Well, whoopie-doo. If Trump really believes the sanctions are unconstitutional (as the Truth in Media also said last week), why did he sign them.

See Trump signs Russia sanctions bill into law



One reason we don’t learn from history is that we are not given a chance. Look at the story the History Channel published today about the Gulf of Tonkin incident. Not a word about the McNamara deception or the fact the LBJ’s national security team hoodwinked him into starting the war.

So they are still propagating the 50-year old lies of the “New World Order” of the 1960s.




So what’s he waiting for?

Meanwhile, the new “Drang Nach Osten” Continues as US pushes Georgia to join NATO

Mike Pence said Tuesday that President Donald Trump would soon sign into law a new package of sanctions against Russia.

So what’s he waiting for?

Of course, the obedient lapdog media who accompanies Pence on his drum-beating visit to Georgia, a former Soviet republic, not the US southern state, do not get jetted, wined and dined on international trips like this to ask challenging questions.

My guess?

Trump is now getting an earful from other powerful international leaders about how stupid and suicidal it would be for the US to start a trade war with the world. So maybe he’s having second thoughts? God willing… though I am not holding my breath.


Meanwhile, Pence’s visit to the former Soviet state on Russia’s southern border reaffirmed the continuation of a Russophobic trend the Truth in Media first identified in April 1995 (see “New Drang Nach Osten” (Push toward East): Taming the Russian Bear” – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Columns/Drang.html).

The US VP used the opportunity to push for Georgia’s admittance to NATO during a visit to US troops who are stationed there (did you know we had troops there? I did not). They were participating in joint multinational military exercises “Noble Partner 2017” at an airbase outside Tbilisi, Georgia’s capital.

Back in April 1995, I wrote:

“Napoleon tried it. It didn’t work. Bismarck eventually also gave up on the idea. The German Kaiser and the Hapsburg emperor, as well as later Adolf Hitler, provoked two world wars in this century pursuing the “Drang Nach Osten” (“Eastward Push”) goal. Having caused the suffering by millions of people, including their own, they also failed.rus-ring.gif (44632 bytes)
Yet, kicking Russia out of Europe is still the objective of the current U.S. developed, and Washington-Berlin executed strategy, thinly veiled under the “Partnership for Peace” slogan.”

At the time, we also called NATO the New “Iron Curtain” over Europe and painted it back on the map. The updated map shows the new members in olive-drab and the new target acquisitions in yellow.

The geopolitical maps you see here are part of that article. I have just updated them to the current time frame to show the NATO expansion that has taken place since I wrote that 22 years ago.

With Ukraine and Georgia in bag of NATO minions, Washington’s encirclement of Russia would be complete.


Back in 1995, when I first published that “Drang Nach Osten” piece, I was working as a war correspondent and geopolitical commentator on the Balkans conflicts. During one of my earlier visits to Bosnia (in 1994), I had a chance to share this research and charts with General Ratko Mladic, the top commander of the Bosnian Serb army, and his HQ staff.

The general’s grasped the geopolitical significance of this analysis right away. Alas, his army was too weak by that stage of the war to take on an enemy as powerful as NATO by itself. And its one possible ally – Russia – was floundering.

At the time, Boris Yeltsin, Russia’s president, was on his knees (figuratively) begging the IMF for a loan. Here’s what I said about that:

“On April 12, 1995, the day the IMF finally approved his loan, Yeltsin set the price for “Mother Russia’s” sovereignty – a mere $7 billion! The amount seems like a bargain-basement price which may go down in history alongside some other major give-aways, such as the sale of Alaska by the Russians.”

When Vladimir Putin took over from Yeltsin in 2000, Russia was in shambles – robbed, plundered and pillaged of its assets by the local quislings of the New World Order and western bankers. For a few years, Putin acted in good faith, hoping that he can negotiate with the powers that be of the New World Order.

Alas, Putin eventually realized that was impossible. As Winston Churchill allegedly shouted at one of his ministers who wanted to negotiate a peace treaty with Hitler after Dunkirk, “you don’t sue for peace when your head is in the jaw of a tiger.” [paraphrasing]

And so here we are, the NATO tiger is trying to add another bite to its eastern meal – Georgia. The new Iron Curtain over Europe is spreading to the east.





UPDATE AUG 19, 2017


Donald Trump’s surrender to the forces of the New World Order is now complete. The last of the “Trump conservative Mohicans”, a lightning rod who infuriated the “liberals” like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and other George Soros neo-commies, has left the White House.  But Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist until yesterday, did not leave quietly.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday (Aug 18) to the Weekly Standard, a conservative newspaper, shortly after confirming his departure.

“We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.” (Steve Bannon: ‘The Trump Presidency That We Fought For, and Won, Is Over.’ http://tws.io/2vSOD2F)


Not to split hairs, but actually the Trump presidency died on Aug 2, the day the president signed the Russia sanctions bill, which he himself said was unconstitutional as he was signing it (see A SAD SURRENDER – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2sR).

Here’s what the Truth in Media said on Aug 2:


“We now have a lame duck president walking with a tail between his legs… a White House Eunuch” (Truth in Media, Aug 2, 2017)

Guess that was too much to hope for – that a New York multibillionaire would have the balls to take on his peers, and act as a true populist president in the interest of the American people. Trump has now proven that he is one of “them” and against “us,” the American people.

Shame on you, Donald Trump! The whole world can see now that you are just another impotent eunuch serving the New World Order’s interests.”

The New World Order “deep state” now have Trump in their grip like a python, slowly squeezing the (political) life out of his presidency. If he is not impeached, he’ll be used by the NWO from now on as a useful idiot. Or as an actor who will pontificate on their behalf, as Ronald Reagan had done.

No surprise there. We had warned about such a possibility even before Trump was elected president, and again during the first 100 days of his presidency (“LIKE RONALD, LIKE DONALD”… PUPPETS ON A STRING”, Apr 16, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2eS, and “IF YOU CAN’T BEAT HIM, JOIN HIM… AND THEN SMOTHER HIM” Oct 23, 2016 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-21q).


It would appear that Steve Bannon also saw the light in the same way as we did. According to Fox News (see the video below), Trump’s chief strategist actually submitted his resignation on Aug 7, five days after Trump’s sad surrender to our sold out Congress. But the Trump’s war of words with North Korea and Charlottesville events cause the White House to hold back on making it public until yesterday.

Also see this Fox News report… (just the first 4 minutes should suffice).

Among the senior advisers competing with Bannon in trying to shape Trump’s agenda, and his tone, were the president’s daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared, and Steven Mnuchin, US Treasury secretary (all Jews, by the way). Bannon pointedly voiced criticism of those in the president’s sphere whom he considered to be globalists, or liberals (or both), and the president himself plainly bristled over the early attention that Bannon got from the press (including a Time magazine cover, which is said to have particularly irked Trump).

Trump signs the sanctions bill

We now have a lame duck president walking with a tail between his legs

Yes. Just minutes ago (11:20 AM PDT), I read a dispatch from Washington that indeed, Donald Trump signed this morning the new Russia sanctions legislation into law (see https://on.rt.com/8jcz).

Well, whoopie-doo. If Trump really believes the sanctions are unconstitutional (as the Truth in Media also said last week), why did he sign them.

UPDATE AUG 3, 2017



Russia’s Prime Minister: “New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power”

The US establishment has fully outwitted Donald Trump and used his administration’s weakness to declare a fully-fledged economic war on Russia, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote last night on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Dmitry.Medvedev/posts/10154587161801851),

The “Trump administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way,”Medvedev wrote.

“This changes the power balance in US political circles,” Medvedev wrote, asserting that the US establishment’s end game is to remove Trump from office.



The first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency have established one fact beyond doubt. He was still an outsider in the corrupt Washington swamp that he had promised to “drain.” The Congress has been thwart him from achieving his promises to the American people by throwing obstacles in his way every step of the way.

So there was no question from Trump’s viewpoint who his ENEMIES are. It is not Russia. It is not China. It is not India. Not even Iran.  It is our corrupt Congress.

Last week, this Congress who has been selling out the interests of the American people to their corporate sponsors for decades, passed a legislation that the Truth in Media immediately labeled as not only unconstitutional, but also destroys dozens of international laws. Yesterday, It is a declaration of GLOBAL DICTATORSHIP by the US.

Trump himself agreed with us and called the Russia sanctions bill unconstitutional. And yet he signed it nevertheless, surrendering to his enemies and abandoning his sworn duty “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.”

In its haste to pass the legislation, Congress “included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions,” Trump said after he had signed the bill.

Which means that in feeble attempt to stay in office a bit longer Trump has decided to sleep with the enemy.

That’s treason all around. Our country is becoming an unconstitutional dictatorship of the murderous New World Order elite.


The American political elite, Medvedev said in his last night’s missive, is not interested in Trump’s pragmatic approach or the interests of US multinationals who spoke out against any new sanctions.

“New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power. A non-systemic player has to be removed,” Medvedev underlined.

“This legislation is going to be harsher than the Jackson-Vanik amendment as it is overarching and cannot be lifted by a special presidential order without Congress’ approval. Thus, relations between Russia and the United States are going to be extremely tense regardless of Congress’ makeup and regardless of who is president,” Medvedev outlined.

In short, we now have our own White House eunuch. Trump is all bluster no balls. And “the American political elite,” as the Russian PM called them, are once again running the show.

And what a grim show it will be – starting with a declaration of a global trade war and repudiation of normal international laws and codes of conduct.

It does bring back memories of British PM Neville Chamberlain returning from a meeting with Hitler in Munich September 1938 and holding up the agreement which he called “PEACE IN OUR TIME.” And we all know what followed.

So we now have our own Chamberlain. His name is Trump. Question is – will we find another Churchill?

JULY 29, 2017 [start of the thread of articles]

Trump intends to sign the Russia sanctions bill, the White House announced in a statement

That’s the news (http://cnn.it/2haxDRN). And now a comment.



And now, the betrayal of the American people is complete. And the world’s hopes of peace have been dashed.

Donald Trump is clearly one of “them” – the dogs of war in the Senate and the House who sold out the American people to the New World Order’s “death merchants” and bankers.

In one fell swoop, Donald Trump has been neutered, reduced to another NWO eunuch, having lost control of the US foreign policy. Just like all his predecessors in the last three decades.

Only yesterday, I wrote hopefully…



(Truth in Media, July 28, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2pn)
“We did not give Congress presidential powers which include making foreign policy. So this legislation is not only invalid under international law, it is also UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
That’s why Trump needs to take on all the traitors in the House and Senate head on and veto this unprecedented legislation.
Of course, since most of the Congress has been bought by the warmongering Russophobic anti-Trump deep state, they can overturn the veto. Let them.
That’s when Trump should consider dissolving the Congress which violated our Constitution with this legislation, and then call for new congressional elections.
Trump should then take the case to the American people with a proposed new constitutional amendment or a new Constitution (the latter would be my preference).
THAT’S HOW ONE DRAINS THE DC SWAMP. So that all snakes and reptiles are gone forever.
If Trump were to do that, he would be fighting not only for the rights and freedom of the American people. He would be fighting for WORLD PEACE. So he would have the support of the entire planet in this noble endeavor.”



Guess that was too much to hope for – that a New York multibillionaire would have the balls to take on his peers, and act as a true populist president in the interest of the American people. Trump has now proven that he is one of “them” and against “us,” the American people.

Shame on you, Donald Trump! The whole world can see now that you are just another impotent eunuch serving the New World Order’s interests.


Stand by for Russia’s retaliation. Of a harsh kind. Which is what the American warmongers have been pushing for. They want a Cold War II. But what if they get World War III?

Russia will likely retaliate in ways that go beyond the expulsion of US diplomats and the seizure of American diplomatic recreation areas that took place Friday, George Beebe, a former director of Russia analysis at the CIA, told CNN. Russia is likely to more actively work against US interests on the international stage.

“He is in a lose-lose situation here,” Beebe said. “There really are no good options for him on this.” Beebe added that Trump’s signature will confirm to the Russians “that he’s lost control of Russia policy.”

“He can’t not act,” said Angela Stent, director of Georgetown University’s Center for Eurasian, Russian and Eastern European Studies, referring to Russia’s president Vladimir Putin. “He has to show Russia can’t be pushed around by the US.”

As the danger of an escalatory tit-for-tat grows, mechanisms meant to prevent US-Russian confrontation have been breaking down.


So it appears certain now that we are heading for Cold War II with Russia. But there is a wild card here in play that was not there when the first Cold War started in 1947.

That wild card is China, Russia’s close friend and partner in the anti-American BRICS organization. Thanks to the American globalists, China has now become the world’s greatest economic power. And its military might is not too shabby either.

And the new Russia sanctions legislation affects not only Russia, but all of its partners, including the EU and China and India and Brazil and South Africa (the BRICS countries).

If the US warmongers think they can control and overpower all of these nations, they have another think coming to them.


Over 500 years ago Nicolo Machiavelli (1469 – 1527) had warned them about that, writing in “Prince:”

“It must be considered that there is nothing more difficult to carry out norniccolo-machiavelli1 more doubtful of success nor more dangerous to handle than to initiate a NEW ORDER OF THINGS (emphasis added).

For, the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order; this lukewarmness arising partly from the incredulity of mankind who does not truly believe in anything new until they actually have experience of it.”

I used this quote in my March 1994 editorial CHINA FOLLIES (http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2oQ). It warned against feeding the Chinese tiger. It fell on deaf ears.

Two days ago, I also said in a Truth in Media editorial that “not learning from history is a terrible thing.” Trump and his cohorts in the Senate and the House are about to experience just how terrible it is. And so are we, the American people.

UPDATE 2: JULY 29, 2017


When Donald Trump signs the Russia sanctions bill, he and the Congress will have effectively declared a trade war on the world.

In their hatred of Russia, they and their Wall Street masters, may soon find out that they have overplayed their hand. And that such sanctions can boomerang as quickly and potently as they can be launched. And that the American economy may end up the biggest victim of their suicidal, psychopathic and megalomanic behavior.

The U.S. politicians still seem to live the illusion that the U.S, is the most powerful economy in the world. It is not. And it has not been for about three years now. The US economy has been sliding down the top countries’ list for at least the last three years (see the Truth in Media report, CHINA HAS ALREADY SURPASSED U.S. AS WORLD’S BIGGEST ECONOMY – June 23, 2015 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-Yf).

And that’s something you’re not hearing from our politicians or the lamestream media, are you?

The U.S. economy is only #3 in the world, behind China and the EU, in terms of the GDP’s purchasing power parity. All three of our sources agree – the IMF, World Bank, and the CIA (see the chart).

Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 3.27.14 PM


And there is our national debt. It is at record levels – nearly $20 trillion. That’s a number which an average person would find pretty hard to fathom. So let me bring it closer to home.

Our government has mortgaged us – yes, you and I – to the tune of $60,818 per each American. And we never signed or approved any loan applications, did we?

So to whom we owe all that money?

To many entities, both public and private. But the most important part in terms of this sanctions discussion are the foreign holders. They own about 45% of that enormous debt. And Japan and China are by far the biggest holders among them.



And not just Russia’s…

So now that you know all these economic facts, perhaps you can better understand what Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov meant when he said yesterday that there is ‘a very rich toolbox’ at Russia’s disposal” (see http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2pn).

And not just Russia’s. Russia’s economy is closely linked with that of China, India, Brazil and South Africa- its BRIC partners. And it is both geographically and economically tied to Europe, the second largest economic block in the world, after China and the U.S.

When Trump signs this legislation into law, the economies of all of these countries will be hurt. And together, they are several times more powerful than the U.S.

That is why the new Russia sanctions are suicidal, psychopathic and megalomanic. And here’s why…



It may be some time before each country affected by the new sanctions reaches its decision about how to respond, but here are some possibilities.


Let’s suppose China, Russia, India and maybe even some European countries decide to impose heavy tariffs on all or select U.S. imports?

Boomerang! Suddenly the hurt the American politicians were hoping to inflict upon Russia would bounce back and hit the U.S. economy.  The Wall Street bubble would burst. Layoffs, increased unemployment to follow across America.

Oops, didn’t think of that on Capitol Hill and the White House?


As you saw, China has been the biggest holder of US treasuries for most of the last two decades. It is still in a virtual tie with Japan. Both countries’ holdings are more than four times bigger than those of the #2 and #3 countries (Ireland and Brazil).  Four of the five BRICS countries are among the top 13 foreign holders of US debt. And they would all suffer if Trump signs the new Russia sanctions into law.

So declaring a trade war against the biggest holders of US debt is both suicidal and psychopathic behavior. It’s like a mortgage holder threatening the bank that is holding his debt and has him by his “cojones.” (Sorry, ladies, I could not think of an equivalent feminine metaphor at the moment). 🙂


So what could these foreign lenders do, starting with China? They could sell their US treasuries. And the US dollar would drop like a rock.

Of course, everything comes at a price. That would make their exports to the U.S. more expensive and the U.S. imports cheaper in their domestic markets. That’s where the Scenario 1 comes in – slap the high tariffs on US products to even the scales.

Besides, the US is not China’s largest trading partner. That honor belongs to Europe. And China is Europe’s second largest export market.


So if these countries banded together, they could not only increase their bilateral trade, they do away with the US dollar as the world currency of trade and exchange altogether. After all, that’s what the BRICS countries are already starting to do.

The Russian central bank, for example, opened its first overseas office in Beijing on March 14 of this year, taking a step forward in forging a Beijing-Moscow alliance to bypass the US dollar in the global monetary system, and to phase-in a gold-backed standard of trade (see https://goo.gl/3qoYJf).


So the world would evolve “back to the future” when gold, something the US bankers could not easily manipulate, would once again be king of world trade.


By the way, that image of the US dollar $100 banknote is not a photoshop. Such Gold certificates were used as paper currency in the United States from 1882 to 1933. These certificates were freely convertible into gold coins.

That’s what made the US dollar the world’s currency of choice. But the greedy Wall Street bankers changed the rules, starting with FDR in 1933. so as to be able to better manipulate the dollar and use is as a weapon in their quest for global dominance.


In 1934, the government price of gold was increased to $35 per ounce, effectively increasing the gold on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheets by 69 percent. This increase in assets allowed the Federal Reserve to further inflate the money supply.

The government held the $35 per ounce price until August 15, 1971, when Richard Nixon announced that the US would no longer convert dollars to gold at a fixed value,

Alas, one result is that the dollar is now worth only a tiny fraction of that it used to be (the last chart).


This scenario is the darkest. Let us hope it never comes to that. But if the Scenarios 1 and 2 did not bring the U.S. politicians back to their senses, some countries may choose to do what the U.S. government has already done to Russia – unlawfully seize their property in America.

What if some of these countries seized the assets of U.S. corporations? And maybe even nationalized them?

Of course, all hell would break loose in New York and Washington. And maybe that would be a doomsday scenario for WW III.  But it would certainly awaken everybody in corporate America from their smug, self-centered and arrogant attitude toward other countries.

So, there’s much to think about, right? And much that our president and lawmakers have not thought through.

May God have mercy on America, although I am not sure we deserve it.

UPDATE JULY 31, 2017


It has started… that trade war, that is, the retaliatory statements are pouring in. First from Austria, then Russia, and today from Germany, too.

“I consider the Russia sanctions imposed by the US absolutely unacceptable,” Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.

Yesterday, Vladimir Putin announced that Russia is expelling 755 American diplomats from its embassy in Moscow.

And today, Europe’s most powerful country called for the EU to retaliate against the US.

New sanctions against Moscow proposed by US lawmakers violate international law and officials in Brussels should consider countermeasures, the German economy minister said on Monday.

“We consider this as being against international law, plain and simple,” Brigitte Zypries told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain.

“Of course we don’t want a trade war. But it is important the European Commission now looks into countermeasures,” she added.

According to the minister, “the Americans can not punish German companies because they operate economically in another country.”




China has still not said anything yet publicly about the sanctions. Yet when it speaks, it will be the most powerful voice in the world.

Lest we forget, the China and the EU are the world’s most powerful economies. The US is third. Once China decides to enact its own “countermeasures,” it could be game over for the Wall Street and Washington gang.

Sadly, it is the American people who will take it on the chin when unemployment lines start to stretch from New York to Los Angeles.

On the other hand, we did put those Washington traitors into office. So I can’t say we don’t deserve what’s coming our way from the rest of the world.



PS: The White House said last week that Trump would sign the sanctions bill. Why hasn’t he? It does not take long to take pen to paper. Is Trump having second thoughts after probably getting an earful over the weekend from powerful leaders around the world? Maybe starting with Putin and Xi Jinping and Angela Merkel?



UPDATE AUG 1, 2017



On this month in history… July 1917


DDy0IaXWsAAsF9g100 years ago this month, 2,000 Russian women volunteered to fight for their country. 300 passed the basic training. On July 21, 1917, the 170 women under the command of Maria Bochkaryeva (right), repulsed 14 German attacks in 3 days on the territory of today’s Belarus.

30 of them were killed, 70 wounded, including the commander. That’s how they earned the nickname the “death battalion.”

Of the 300 Russian women who passed the basic training and received their military banner on July 4, 1917 in a ceremony at Saint Isaacs Cathedral in Saint Petersburg, 70 never came back. More than 100 were wounded.

That’s the Russian version of FEMINISM and equality between men and women. Fighting for their country.


Now, with that as a preamble, take a look at these pictures of some of the leading American feminists. And then answer the question: “Do you see any of these women fighting for their country?”

“That’s a joke, right?” you might think. “A trick question.”

I know. It seems that way. For, it would be indeed absurd to imagine the likes of Whoopi Goldberg or Hillary Clinton or Oprah or some these other Hollywood stars, taking up arms and fighting for America. Most of them are too busy trying to emasculate the men, and fight for the gay, lesbian and transgender rights. And for women in politics. So they could all together lord over men.

And they do it by wagging their tongues as talking heads on TV, of course, not arms.

And they are not even being original at that. Like the early feminist Gloria Steinem, for example. At least she took some chances by spying for the CIA.


Did you know, by the way, that the “women’s lib” was actually funded by the New World Order chieftains, such as the Rockefellers?

Yep. The Truth in Media wrote about that 2.5 years ago. See NEW WORLD ORDER’S WAR ON AMERICAN FAMILY,, Jan 2, 2015 -p http://wp.me/p3QU1S-LO.

With so many women around the world already in high political offices, why do you think women desire (political) power?

They don’t. Women already have more power than men and always have. Because they are in charge of CREATION. And LIFE PRESERVATION. That’s the natural order of things which the New World Order elite are trying to change. They want women to be like men.


“The world we know today, the world being propagated by the powers that be of the New World Order – it is the world of constant conflict and warfare… between the nations and tribes and between the genders.”

But why would women want to be like that? Why would they want to be tougher than men? “History is littered with millions of corpses that male ambition, greed and quest for power has left behind,” I wrote in this Aug 2016 editorial, WOMEN AND POWER: ATTRACTION CONCEIVED BY THE DEVIL (i.e., NWO) – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1Fn.

Check it out. You will find many more fascinating facts about how and why the New World Order invented and funded feminism.


Now back to that Russian WW I story. The 2,000 Russian women who volunteered to fight the Germans did not do that because they were natural born heroins. They did it because by the summer of 1917, the Russian army was demoralized and headless.

The Tsar had been deposed. The Kerensky government was floundering. Men were deserting en masse.  So they decided to take up arms hoping this would inspire the men to do the same and keep on fighting.

It did not work, partly due to communist agitators who were trying to get the Russian soldiers to desert. So that the Bolsheviks could overthrow the government and take over. The seeds of the revolution, which was yet to come three months later, were being planted the summer of 1917.

So these Russian women-soldiers fought under most difficult circumstance, without any fanfare or parades, with the sole goal of protecting their motherland. And that is a mark of a true hero.

Slava im! (“Glory to them!”)


The story of the first Russian female battalion commander Maria Bochkaryeva is quite fascinating. It would certainly make a great movie. Alas, Hollywood is not interested in Russian heroes. The Russians are always the bogeys in La La Land productions. So let me share with the gist of her life and death…

Maria was born into a peasant family in Imperial Russia in 1889.  Her life started off miserably. She was sent to work at the age of eight, received regular beatings, was a victim of sexual assault, and was physically abused by the men in her life, including her father and husband.

When the war with Germany and Austria-Hungary broke out in 1914, she decided to leave her past behind and become a soldier.

I cut off my hair, dressed in men’s clothes, and provided myself with two loaves of bread,” Bochkareva recalls in her memoirs, written down by bilingual American journalist Isaac Don Levine in 1918.

Not surprisingly, she was denied entry into the Imperial Army because she was a woman and was advised to try herself out as a sister of mercy.

Undaunted, Maria sent a telegram appealing directly to Tsar Nicholas II. To everyone’s astonishment, she received a positive answer.

In November 1914, she joined the 25th Tomsk Reserve Battalion of the Imperial Russian Army where gradually she grew to be admired and respected by her fellow soldiers.

In 1917, after the February Revolution that toppled the monarchy, War Minister Alexander Kerensky approached Maria with the idea of forming Russia’s first female battalion.

After the Bolsheviks came to power in the October of 1917, Bochkareva fled to the United States via Vladivostok, in Russia’s Far East (like another “Dr Zhivago” script).

There she was received in the White House by the President Woodrow Wilson, who was said to have been moved by her story.

She returned to Russia in 1918 to continue her fight against the Bolsheviks. But she was arrested and sentenced to death. The execution was to be carried out on May 16, 1920.

However, when Maria was rehabilitated in 1992, no statement of the execution was found in the communist archives. Her biographer, Sergey Drokov, believes she was never shot, but was saved by journalist Isaac Don Levine, who was in Russia at that time, seeking (in vain) a meeting with Lenin.

And so the mystery of Maria’s life will live on forever (see https://on.rt.com/8if4).

Here’s are links to two stories at RT.COM which describe their plight and heroism.

The fight is on – not between the U.S. and Russia, but between our two houses – the House of Representatives and the White House

Also see, HOW TO DRAIN THE DC SWAMP – July 28 update at the end

Can you imagine what would happen in this country (and the world) if countries like, say, China or India, announced sanctions against the most successful U.S. industries. Such as information technology (computers), for example, or telecommunications, or military technology, or aerospace, or…?

And these sanctions would not be limited only to the Chinese or Indian companies. These sanctions would apply to all their trading partners around the world. Like the EU, or Japan, or Brazil, or Canada.

I’ll tell you what would happen: There would war. The lamestream media would go berserk. Wall Street would demand immediate retributions, and Washington would meekly and obligingly put our armed forces and military might at the Wall Street disposal as they have in all the wars in the last quarter century.



Now imagine the shoe were on the other foot. The latest package of sanctions, passed by the US House of Representatives on Tuesday, targets Russia’s major defense, mining, shipping and railway industries. In other words the country’s lifelines, the pride and joy of Russia’s creativity and industry, and its most advanced technologies, some more so than those in the U.S. (like aerospace, or various other military technologies).

As if that were not bad enough, the new sanctions also include penalties on European companies engaged in joint EU-Russia energy projects, with the Gazprom-run Nord Stream 2 flagship pipeline being the most probable targets.

Now, take a deep breath and put yourself in Vladimir Putin’s shoes. What would you do? This is an unprecedented attack, a virtual declaration of war, in which one GOVERNMENT uses all of its political might to help the business of its PRIVATE MULTINATIONAL companies. And in the process breaks many of the longstanding international laws and practices.

Now, here’s what Putin’s initial reaction has been…

PUTIN’S REACTION: New sanctions “extremely cynical.”

“It’s an obvious attempt [by the US] to use its geopolitical advantages in the competitive struggle with the goal of ensuring its economic interests at the expense of its other allies,” he added.

“As for the extraterritorial nature of the US legislation, I have been talking about this for a long time, starting from 2007… This practice is unacceptable, it destroys international relations and international law,” he said.

Russia’s president warned that Moscow is already running out of patience with Washington’s “impudence.”

“As you know, our behavior is very restrained, patient, but at some point we will have to come up with a response. It is impossible to endlessly endure impudence towards our country,” Putin said.

He said that Moscow “hasn’t yet seen the final version (of the US sanctions legislation), that’s why we don’t have a final opinion on the issue.”

“But we see that for a long period of time [there have been] constant attempts to provoke us,” the Russian leader added.

Editorial Comment



Everything is happening right on cue. The day after the first and historic meeting between the American and Russian presidents at the G20 summit in Hamburg, (see https://www.facebook.com/ groups/truthinmedia.org/ permalink/1162310413915570/)

“Trump and Putin had “positive chemistry” during their first meeting, Tillerson said, adding that there was “so much to talk about” that neither leader “wanted to stop.” The two “connected very quickly,” said (Rex) Tillerson (US Secretary of State).

That’s great. Now let’s sit back and watch how the lamestream media and other warmongers among the New World Order crowd try to derail this rapprochement between the U.S. and Russia at presidential levels.

Now it remains to be seen who is in charge here – Trump or the NWO foreign policy masters.”

So the fight is on. Not between the U.S. and Russia, but between our two houses – the House of Representatives and the White House.

The former have sold their souls and votes to the U.S. death merchants and other bankers and industrials. It remains to be seen if our President is really for peace and prosperity, as he has said, or will cave in to the dogs of war.



Meanwhile, as these Truth in Media cartoons show, originally published in 1994 and 1995 respectively, there has been an unquestionable consistency of US hatred and warmongering against Serbia and Russia during the last quarter century.


Is it a “coincidence” that both are predominantly Orthodox Christian countries? There is no such thing, of course, as a coincidence when it comes to the New World Order actions.

Any time the US, or its other New World Order minions, extended an olive branch with one hand to Russia or Serbia, they held deadly weapons behind their backs.

Like aligning themselves with all kinds of unsavory factions, characters and groups, including drug dealers and Islamic terrorists (in Kosovo and Chechnya, for example), whom they used as proxies in the fight against the Orthodox Christians.


This is not new news. Here’s an excerpt from my Nov 1996 Washington Times column, “The Demo Farce and the American Century”, https://www.truthinmedia.org/ Columns/DEMO%20FARCE.html, also carried in Russian by Moscow’s ZAVTRA (“Tomorrow”) in Dec 1996:

“The Marxism/Communism ideology was a western invention which the West planted into Russia, and then used it as a cover for launching an all-out campaign against the Eastern Orthodox Christians,’ said Vladimir Bondarenko, a Russian writer and deputy editor of a Moscow opposition paper, ‘ZAVTRA’ (‘Tomorrow’), who spoke on Nov 3, 1996 at a meeting in Phoenix.

If Bondarenko is right, and if the Western industrials’ anti-Eastern Christian Orthodoxy policy has been one of the constants of the 20th century, then hundreds of millions of good people, the law-abiding, God-fearing Americans and other western Christians have been duped. They’ve been fooled (by one communist gang, such as NWO’s Brzezinski et. al.) into fighting ‘communism’ – a ‘bogus bogey,’ over the backs of their Eastern Orthodox Christian brothers and sisters. And on behalf of our real enemies – the Godless industrial globalists (a rival gang).”


Let us also not forget that, just like these new sanctions, the downing of the MH17 in July 2014 was supposed to shock and awe Washington’s European allied into submission. Just like now, they were starting to flaunt the US sanctions and continue the “business as usual” trading with Russia.

The mass murder of some 300 innocent civilians, mostly Dutch, aboard the MH17 did indeed shock the Europeans into falling in line behind the U.S.

“With friends like Washington,” the Europeans must have reasoned, “who needs enemies.” And caved in.

Three months earlier (in Apr 2014), this writer penned an editorial which pointed out that the US Russia policy is and has been entirely ANTI-EUROPEAN (see EUROPE: ALL PAIN, NO GAIN, Apr 26, 2014 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-iF).

A month earlier, Putin also lashed out at the US treachery (see NATO: TO RUSSIA WITH LOVE, Truth in Media, March 2014 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-dG). Little did he know back then what kinds of crimes with mass murderers are capable of.

What will Europe do now if these new sanctions are implemented? Will they cave in again? Or will it take an “MH18” disaster to bring them to heel?

Maybe not this time.

“I consider the Russia sanctions imposed by the US absolutely Kern Austrian Chancellorunacceptable,” Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern wrote on Facebook on Wednesday. “Confusing political interests with economic interests at the expense of European jobs is a no-go.”

“Energy supply of Europe is a matter for Europe!” Kern added (for more, see… https://on.rt.com/8ivr).

“These types of sanctions in position is economic suicide for America,” said Mx Kaiser, RT editor. :They are pushing Germany into the arms of Russia. Germany is the center piece of NATO, and NATO will disintegrate… ”

So if this were to come to pass, maybe some good come out of all this hatred and warmongering.

“This is stupid,” Kaiser continued.”It’s is the policy of morons. Why? Because the deep state in America wants to keep feathering their nests by warring all over the world, killing innocent civilians. Donald Trump hopefully will stand up to this.” (for more, see… https://on.rt.com/8ivq).

We will let Kaiser have the last word. After all, he is a Kaiser. 🙂




On this day in 1974, the House Judiciary Committee recommends that America’s 37th president, Richard M. Nixon, be impeached and removed from office. The impeachment proceedings resulted from a series of political scandals involving the Nixon administration that came to be collectively known as Watergate.

On August 8, Nixon announced his resignation, becoming the first president in U.S. history to voluntarily leave office.





That was 43 years ago when we had a “bad” president. Now the situation is reversed. We have a “bad” Congress (both the House and the Senate). These traitors have sold out the interests of the American people to their death merchant, bankers and industrial backers, including some foreign sponsors.

That’s treason. And yet we have no constitutional tools to deal with that kind of abuse of office. Our Founding Fathers, honorable men that they were, could conceive of such travesty.

As the Roman poet Juvenal wandered rhetorically in the first century AD, Quis custodiet ipsos custodes (“who will guard the guards?”).

So how do we impeach the impeachers?

Donald Trump talked a lot about “draining the swamp” during the campaign. Here’s his chance.


Washington Swap

Flashback to Trump-Putin’s first summit on July 8, 2017 at the G20 meeting in Hamburg

July 9, 2017



But will Nikki Haley do it?

The “historic” first Trump-Putin meeting on July 7, on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, hijacked Angela Merkel’s carefully planned agenda for this summit of world leaders. Not only did the media focus only on that event, even Melania Trump could not pry her husband away from Putin.

The meeting was scheduled to last 30-40 minutes. It went on for 2:16 hours. Poor Japanese prime minister Abe, who had a meeting scheduled with Putin right after Trump’s, had to cool his heels like a valet until the two world leaders were finished bonding with each other.

Afterward, Putin apologized to Abe on behalf of both himself and Putin.

“I had a tremendous meeting yesterday with President Putin,” Trump said today (July 8) while speaking with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

It must have been. Because even Melania could not pry her husband away from Putin.

First Lady Melania Trump was sent into the meeting at one point to see her husband and try to “get him out,” Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson said.

“Clearly, she failed,” the top US diplomat joked, adding that the meeting went on for another hour after that.


Putin’s spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, who has been Putin’s spokesperson since 2000,, disagreed. He said that a “certain affection” had developed between the Russian leader and Trump’s wife, Melania, who sat next to the Russian president at the official G20 dinner, revealing that the two discussed several issues on the summit agenda, including gender equality and women’s economic participation.

Trump and Putin had “positive chemistry” during their first meeting, Tillerson said, adding that there was “so much to talk about” that neither leader “wanted to stop.” The two “connected very quickly,” said Tillerson.

That’s great. Now let’s sit back and watch how the lamestream media and other warmongers among the New World Order crowd try to derail this rapprochement between the U.S. and Russia at presidential levels. Including those whom Trump had appointed to their jobs, such as the UN ambassador Nikki Haley.

‘We cannot trust Russia & we won’t ever trust Russia’ – she has already squawked today in a CNN interview.

Right on cue. Now it remains to be seen who is in charge here – Trump or the NWO foreign policy masters.

If it is the former, Trump should fire Haley immediately for insubordination. It is the President, not the UN ambassador, who makes foreign policy.

And if Trump does not, then well… we’ll also have an answer as to who is in charge, won’t we?

Putin Trump 7-07-17

UPDATE JULY 10, 2017 – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-2kr


Biggest threat to New World Order: If Reap Peace Were to Break Out between U.S. and Russia

They are so predictable. The uproar has already started. The New World Order war dogs are already barking their heads off. On orders, of course, of their warmongering masters.

I said yesterday in my piece about the friendly meeting between the Russian and American presidents on July 7 (see EVEN MELANIA COULD NOT BREAK UP THE TRUMP-PUTIN BONDING), that the new detente will come under attack by the mad war dogs of the New World Order. Because the later could not exist without Russia as a bogey and an enemy.

So the news that Putin and Trump hit it off so well must have rung alarm bells across the New World Order boardrooms. And immediately they sent their attack dogs to try to derail the deal.


First yesterday, the UN ambassador Nikki Haley had the nerve to attack her own president who appointed her to that job (see ‘We cannot trust Russia & we won’t ever trust Russia’ – she has already squawked July 9 in a CNN interview.).

Then today, three warmongering Republican senators – Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, John McCain of Arizona and Marco Rubio of Florida – immediately criticized the Trump-Putin idea “to form an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe”, saying Moscow could not be trusted.

Just like Nikki Haley yesterday. Reading of the same warmongering New World Order page? Birds of a feather that flock together? You betcha.

And then also today, “NATO Chief Jens Stoltenberg Called On Russia To Remove ‘Thousands Of Troops’ From Ukraine”.

Excuse me? Russian troops in Ukraine, while the US military are steadily building up their presence since 2015. Clearly another distraction and diversion attempt by the NATO and US military war dogs.

Because at the same time as Stoltenberg was mouthing off this nonsensical accusation against Russia, guess what the U.S. military were doing? Conducting massive war games just off Ukrainian coast (see Sea Breeze: US sends missile warships, Navy SEALs to massive war games off Ukraine coast).

As I said, they are so predictable. Because the biggest threat to the New World Order would be if real PEACE were to break out between the U.S. and Russia. So they are calling all their war dogs into action trying to prevent that from happening.

UPDATE JULY 28, 2017


Gill Fisher, an FB reader from South Carolina, wrote this about my editorial on new Russia sanctions:
“The worst mistake America can make right now. In Trump we trust – so Congress ties his hands behind his back. WE did not elect Congress for president.”
Here’s my reply:
True. We did not give Congress presidential powers which include making foreign policy. So this legislation is not only invalid under international law, it is also UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
That’s why Trump needs to take on all the traitors in the House and Senate head on and veto this unprecedented legislation.
Of course, since most of the Congress has been bought by the warmongering Russophobic anti-Trump deep state, they can overturn the veto. Let them.
That’s when Trump should consider dissolving the Congress which violated our Constitution with this legislation, and then call for new congressional elections.
Trump should then take the case to the American people with a proposed new constitutional amendment or a new Constitution (the latter would be my preference).
THAT’S HOW ONE DRAINS THE DC SWAMP. So that all snakes and reptiles are gone forever.
If Trump were to do that, he would be fighting not only for the rights and freedom of the American people. He would be fighting for WORLD PEACE. So he would have the support of the entire planet in this noble endeavor.
(just like I predicted in my editorial NEW WORLD ORDER SNAKE TO BE EXPELLED FROM AMERICA – http://wp.me/p3QU1S-1TK – written 2 weeks BEFORE the election last year).

UPDATE JULY 29, 2017


Be sure to check out the ALTZAR comment at the end re. “DECISION MAKERS IN NEW YORK”

“It was the last drop that made all this happen,” the Russia’s No. 2 diplomat said referring to the “completely weird and unacceptable” bill approved by US lawmakers on Tuesday.

The deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov called on the US to put an end to the retaliation measures and turn over a new leaf in bilateral relations, which are currently in “a miserable state.”

“My hope is that this vicious circle of retaliation will not continue. Measures and counter measures shall stop by now,” Ryabkov said.

“Now we should start anew and my call to the counterparts in Washington and also to Ambassador Tefft is to stop now, we should start building a new house, a new construction or a very different type, otherwise everything will be in tatters.”

Elaborating on Moscow’s decision to downsize of the number of US diplomatic corps in Russia to the same number of Russian diplomats in the US, Ryabkov said Russia has waited seven months before resorting to the measure.

“We waited so long, we thought it was sufficient time for decision makers in New York to change their minds, it didn’t happen,” he said, adding that “now we are equals” in terms of diplomatic staff numbers.

However, if Washington turns a deaf ear to Moscow’s plea, there is “a very rich toolbox” in Russia’s disposal, according to the deputy minister. While Ryabkov refused to disclose any exact retaliation steps as it would be “unprofessional,” he assured that “different options are on the table and consideration is being given to all sorts of things both symmetrical or asymmetrical.”

“Every child in the US knows what the words ‘no trespassing on private property’ means. Meanwhile, we saw the US law enforcers just taking completely unacceptable measure on private property that belongs to a foreign state. We can’t have more evidence of a very wrong direction in which political thinking in the US has taken in recent time.”

Ryabkov was referring to the action taken by the Obama administration in the waning days of their tenure (Dec 29, 2016) in which they unlawfully seized two Russian diplomatic compounds and expelled 35 Russian diplomats.




ALTZAR: And now, what do you think was the most important thing Russia’s No. 2 diplomat said here? To give you a clue, it is in the 6th paragraph.

“We waited so long“… “for decision makers in NEW YORK to change their minds.”

It was probably a slip of the tongue, but Ryabkov did speak the truth. The DECISION MAKERS in this country are in NEW YORK, not Washington. It is in New York where the head(s) of the New York Order serpent reside.

Yet China’s Rise to Power Was “Made in the USA”

In his first public address since taking office in January, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, said he sees China rather than Russia or Iran as the biggest threat to America’s dominant position in the world.

Speaking at the Washington Free Beacon conservative “think tank,” Pompeo said Beijing merited the top spot on the US spymaster’s threat list due to its stronger economy and population.

He also marked terrorism and North Korea as the biggest short-term threats to US security interests, but selected China, Russia and Iran as mid-to-long-term concerns.

by Bob Altzar Djurdjevic

What the CIA chief admitted today can only come as a surprise to poor students of history. Back in March 1994, yes, over 23 years ago, this writer said this in part on the subject of the U.S. China policy:

“The rise of China in the world affairs is bound to cause a new global political instability, just like the rise of Germany and (later) Japan did in the late 19th and early 20th century.”  
This editorial was filed from Barcelona, Spain, where I was at the time attending a business conference (see CHINA FOLLIES – http://www.djurdjevic.com/Bulletins/ibm-corporate/94-12.htm#China Follies).
China Follies 3-25-94

In the same piece, I also pointed out the naïveté of all those business people who were feeding the Chinese tiger hoping they could control it:

“The British textile industrialists a century ago also saw immense opportunities in China. They, too, counted Chinese heads to justify their enthusiasm.
‘If every Chinese added just one inch to his shirt tail, the mills of Lancashire could be kept busy for a generation.’
Well, one hundred years later, the Chinese can (and do) make any length of shirt tails they choose for anyone in the world, while the mills of Lancashire rust in the dustbin of history.”
(Also see, WHO LOST CHINA?, Aug 1999, Truth in Media – https://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins99/tim99-8-3.html).


A year and a half later, I penned this column – WHEN CULTURES COLLIDE…  (published by the Truth in Media in Nov 1995, and by the WASHINGTON TIMES in Aug 1996 – https://goo.gl/CBHXjM).

‘Chinese Century’

Furthermore, despite the inevitable turmoil which China will also face before emerging as the world power, the Earth’s most populous nation may return to glory in the 21st century. Its main contender for this honor roll will not be the U.S., as may seem likely to those who look back before forecasting the future. It will be Russia. Between the two, these leading nations have more engineers, more scientists, more soldiers and more artists than the rest of the Western world put together.

In the new information-driven era, this will give them an insurmountable edge over the stagnant industrialized economies, such as Japan, Germany or the U.S, not to mention the declining ones.

If Bill Clinton isn’t getting the significance of all this, he isn’t alone. Neither did the Austrian or Russian emperors less than 100 years ago! (see  https://goo.gl/CBHXjM​)​

Not learning from history is a terrible thing. It not only shows stupidity. It also illustrates arrogance of those who think they can control things better.



The five American presidents highlighted in red on the enclosed filmstrip, starting with Richard Nixon, are the ones who kept feeding the Chinese tiger hoping they could control it. George H. Bush shamefully looked the other way in June 1989 as the Chinese communist government slaughtered thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators at Tiananmen Square.


Worse, he and the other presidents that followed him allowed American multinational corporations to shower China with hundreds of billions of dollars in investments that have built up China into the virtual factory of the world.

Bill Clinton and Al Gore even went further in their treason against the American people and our national interests. They opened our military secrets to Chinese war planners, taking them on a tour of the U.S. military facilities and schools across the country in Aug 2000 (see http://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2000/tim2000-8-8.html).

“Furthermore, a low-key White House regulation change was signed by Bill Clinton on Aug. 3, 2000 at the urging of the CEOs of IBM, Unisys, Hewlett-Packard and NCR. This presidential order will allow the Chinese military to buy some of the most powerful U.S. computers without a government license or security review, the ABC News reported today (Aug. 28, 2000).

The Clinton move, while applauded by vice president Al Gore, is drawing fire from U.S. security experts who say the computers could help foreign militaries develop nuclear weapons more quickly, and from a congressman who charges the White House is compromising national security for political profit.”

The Clinton-Gore administration even facilitated classes at Harvard to teach the Chinese military leaders how to fight the U.S.

“Twenty-five senior Chinese military officers are attending a course at Harvard to learn details about U.S. decision-making that critics say will help China fight the United States, the Washington Times reported on Aug. 28, 2000.” (see http://www.truthinmedia.org/Bulletins2000/tim2000-8-8.html).


So given all of the above, is there any wonder that China is today’s the greatest threat to the security of the United States? Our government and multinational corporations have enabled China to become that.

This foolhardy and treasonous behavior was clearly visible to the students of history, as demonstrated in my March 1994 editorial CHINA FOLLIES which warned against it.

And yet they did it anyway. Was it stupidity or treason?

To the victim – the American people – it makes no difference. It hurts no less if an assailant stabs you in the back because he was clumsy versus because he intended to. Either way you end up with a knife in your back.

And the Chinese knife in the back of American people was stuck by successive American presidents in the last 25 years – the stooges to the New World Order globalists.

So it was definitely treason. But did the CIA chief say anything about that?

Not that we can see in the media reports.

Did any of the conference attendees demand arrests and prosecution of the last four American presidents for treason?

Not that I know of.

Did Donald Trump, who promised to correct the unfair trading practices with China during his campaign, do something about that?

Definitely not.

So there we are. The Chinese knife is still in our backs and nobody is doing anything about it. Except, of course, trying to tax us more so they can spend more money on the military so as to repel China as the greatest global threat to us. Which they caused.

So it’s same old, same old, business as usual story in Washington… 23 years and counting since my China Follies editorial.

China Follies 3-25-94
