Seventy-seven years ago, August 8th 1945, Nagasaki was nuked by the most powerful nuclear bomb to incinerate and radiate a city, with Hiroshima being second and the only other city to be destroyed. Some have called this a war crime, while others have disagreed, but all understand that the exigencies of war was their motivation.... Read More

Paul Gottfried, Antifascism: The Course of a Crusade, Northern Illinois University Press, 2021, 209 pp., $31.26 hardcover, $12.99 Kindle Every day, American Renaissance posts stories about racial double standards, hypocrisy, and progressives’ absurd positions. Many of our opponents are not just sincere but fanatical. Evidence can’t compete with moral fervor. Those who rule the West,... Read More
Two of them are still on the loose. This video is available on Rumble and BitChute. History is full of terrible ideas, and some have done tremendous damage. There’s little doubt that Communism was history’s worst idea. It was a system that kept people poor, and it’s probably not possible to calculate the economic damage... Read More
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was the longest-serving prime minister in Japanese history. That may be the very definition of “mainstream.” However, English-language media had scathing remarks about Abe, which was especially striking because an assassin had just shot him dead. The subheading of the AP’s report reads: “Shinzo Abe, a divisive archconservative who was Japan’s... Read More

Why is Germany sending weapons to Ukraine? Don't they realize these weapons will be used to kill Russian soldiers? Don't they realize these weapons will be given to Nazi combatants who tattoo swastikas on their arms and march in torchlight parades? Don't the German people care about that? In World War 2, the German Wehrmacht... Read More

On April 8, it was announced that Canada would soon be joining an illustrious club: the enlightened nations of the world that have elected to ban so-called Holocaust denial. Depending on how one interprets the law, there are currently 18 nations that either explicitly ban “Holocaust denial” (including Germany, Austria, France, Israel, Italy, Poland, Hungary,... Read More
Slavocaust from the Semites. The Great Famine of the 1930s. Stalin and Jewish Bolsheviks implemented Forced-Collectivization that led to 7 million deaths in the Soviet Union. 3.5 million were in Ukraine alone, mostly Christian Slavs. As Jews were urban-dwellers and safely ensconced in elite positions, they evaded the brunt of the famine and ate well...

Although I launched The Unz Review in late 2013, for the first couple of years I was preoccupied with political campaigns and software development work, and only wrote an occasional piece here and there. My only notable article was my lengthy expose of the true history of Sen. John McCain: John McCain: When “Tokyo Rose”... Read More

The Holocaust: Myth and Reality, Overview of the book by Dr. Nicholas Kollerstrom
Heresy In the 21st Century Never in my long journalistic career have I ever hesitated to put pen to paper – until now. Indeed, I have delayed writing this overview of Dr. Kollerstrom’s remarkable book for going on six years.[1] Up until now no subject had been too controversial, too sensitive, too beyond the pale...

I try to not be finicky about political labels. I’m comfortable with many of them. Race realist, white advocate, white nationalist, identitarian, and racialist are all decent descriptions of what I am. But there are two I am sometimes saddled with that I reject entirely. The first is “paleoconservative.” While I have profited enormously from... Read More

As the Russia-Ukraine conflict rages on, it continues to act in the West as a kind of Rorschach test of general political attitudes. Broadly speaking, the Center and Left have adopted a strong pro-Ukrainian position, while elements of the hard or alternative Right have attempted to find common ground with Putin’s Russia, often using anti-Wokism...

Jewish diaspora fiction has always been problematic for me, largely because the authors I have read will either champion an overtly Jewish perspective without taking competing gentile ones into account (Saul Bellow, Chaim Potok, Isaac Bashevis Singer) or perceive themselves as ethnic outsiders and attempt to subvert gentile societies which are, of course, inherently bad...

The Great Russian Restoration VII
Many pundits and analysts have pointed out that Russia doesn’t seem to have a visible political/economic/state ideology and they are correct to do so. That being said, the Kremlin civic platform has always been quite basic and straightforward. The Kremlin’s official civic platform is based on three pillars: sport, Orthodoxy and World War II. As...

Earlier, by John Derbyshire(2015): If You Think Donald Trump Is Adolf Hitler, You’re Nuts Some readers criticized my coming out as an isolationist in my February Diary. One got personal: To which I reply: Possibly so. But the U.S.A. was not fighting Germany for altruistic reasons. We were fighting Germany because Germany had declared war... Read More

In the current conflict between Ukraine and its Western allies versus Putin’s Russia, both sides have blamed the other as being “Nazis”. The Jewish comedian and actor become Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said “Russia attacked Ukraine in a cowardly and suicidal way like Nazi Germany did during World War II.”[1] For his part, Putin declared...

Question-- Is there a justification for Russia's invasion of Ukraine? Answer-- Yes, there is. Russia was being threatened by developments in Ukraine, so it told Ukraine to either stop what it was doing or suffer the consequences. Ukraine chose to ignore those warnings, so Russia invaded. That is basically what happened. Question-- But how does... Read More

For years the eminent Russia scholar Stephen Cohen had ranked President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Republic as the most consequential world leader of the early twenty-first century. He praised the man's enormous success in reviving his country after the chaos and destitution of the Yeltsin years and emphasized his desire for friendly relations with... Read More
So it looks not impossible that our new politically-purified multiracial multicultural U.S. Army might actually have to fight, you know, a war in Europe against Russia. This raises lot of interesting questions, but one of them is what is happening to the reputation of the last U.S. Army that fought and won a major war... Read More

The Threatened Peoples of East Asia and Europe Can Stop the U.S. Drive to Restore its Global Domination.
“This is not going to be a war of Ukraine and Russia. This is going to be a European war, a full-fledged war.” So spoke Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky just days after berating the U.S. for beating the drums of war. It is not hard to imagine how Zelensky’s words must have fallen on those... Read More
It’s kind of like a third rail to refer to Germany as “occupied by the United States.” But it’s just a fact. Nearly 80 years ago, Germany lost a war to the United States, and there are still tens of thousands of troops occupying the country, and its entire political and economic order is totally...

The Russian-Ukrainian Crisis would be much better understood if people mentioned... guess what? Yes, Jewish Power or World Jewry.

As an heir to the most famous political family in modern American history, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is hardly an obscure individual, and recent events have greatly elevated his national prominence. Although he had spent most of his career as a highly-successful environmental attorney, during the early 2000s he gradually became involved with the grassroots... Read More
ADL: Sam Cooke Classic Is Anti-Semitic!
Dissociated Press The Anti-Defecation League (ADL) has issued a press release slamming Sam Cooke’s classic “Wonderful World” and demanding the song be canceled. According to ADL president Jonathan Greenbutt, the line “don’t know much about history” is unacceptable. “Every American needs to know everything we tell them about the most important thing that ever happened...

The Culture of remembrance shapes the political foundation of every state in the world. When addressing the culture of remembrance in Germany, what crosses one’s mind immediately is the Allied-prescribed collective memory for the German people installed at the end of World War II. The psychological roots of this post-war culture of remembrance and its... Read More

Media Suppression of Our Leading Journalists and Scholars
During the height of the NSA disclosures a few years ago, Glenn Greenwald probably ranked as the world's most famous journalist, and his entire career had seemed something out of a left-liberal storybook. Becoming disenchanted with his corporate law career at a top firm, he co-founded a small practice specializing in First Amendment issues, then... Read More

Stalin's foreign policy concerning Germany in the years 1939-1941
The largest military operation in history commenced on 22 June 1941. Millions of German troops crossed the German-Soviet border and clashed with the Red Army. Adolf Hitler and German commanders expected to be able to defeat the Soviet Union in three months.[1] By the end of September 1941, the Germans had managed to destroy 8160... Read More
The shocking face of pure and total evil.
UPDATE: They already caught her. I guess evil can’t run very fast, huh? At least not when the forces of good are on its heels. Original article follows. More than 75 years after the six million Jews were gassed to death in steam chambers and turned into furniture and cleaning products, the woman responsible has... Read More

Funny how it goes with the Holocaust story: time and again, an ugly bit of truth slips out. When that happens, yet one more piece of the charade comes to light, for all to see. For a brief moment, one more embarrassing truth catches the public eye, only to quickly be cast into the depths... Read More
An upcoming Israeli film that sympathetically portrays a group of Jewish terrorists who attempted to murder millions of German civilians by poisoning their water supply is enjoying uncritical publicity in Zionist media. The film, "Plan A," is based on a true story that director Yoav Paz extensively researched through recently unveiled testimony as well as... Read More

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

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

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

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

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

Just this month, Kevin Barrett wrote about our cultural breakdown through the prism of Dostoevsky’s Demons.

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

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

The response was... Read More
There are several different approaches to the study of the pathology of White guilt, including linguistic, historical and religious. One needs, however, to critically look at this faulty verbal construct first, a construct which first appeared in America several decades ago, and which has been championed in the media and academia ever since. At first... Read More

Several years ago I published a hardcover collection of my more substantial articles, entitled The Myth of American Meritocracy and Other Essays.
