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...

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
The Russian-Ukrainian Crisis would be much better understood if people mentioned... guess what? Yes, Jewish Power or World Jewry. We speak of Russia, Ukraine, EU, US, UK, NATO, Biden Administration, 'Neocons', and so on, but the real movers and shakers are Jews because they directly control the US, the lone superpower, which in turn rules...

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
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
According to Time.com, the following photo was published in Life magazine, May 22, 1944.  The caption visible in the image reads, “Arizona war worker writes her Navy boyfriend a thank-you note for the Jap skull he sent her” (click to enlarge).

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

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 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
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.

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

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

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

As the Exceptional Empire gets ready to brave a destructive – and self-destructive – new cycle, with dire, unforeseen consequences bound to reverberate across the world, now more than ever it is absolutely essential to go back to the imperial roots. The task is fully accomplished by Tomorrow, the World: The Birth of U.S. Global... Read More
On October 3, 1998, Pope John Paul II beatified Alojzije Cardinal Stepinac at the national shrine of Marija Bistrica in front of 500,000 Croats.1 The next step was canonization.

With the near-universal demonization of the Third Reich, historians have developed a blind spot for the genesis of German anti-Semitism. Michael Kellogg, in his 2005 work The Russian Roots of Nazism, sheds a sharp light on this topic and points our attention eastward. He reveals how the post-World War I atrocities of the Soviet Union... Read More
The presidential postelection period unfolding now in the US is having a big impact on the political class in Europe. Historically speaking this is nothing new. Every politician in Europe knows that any major political change in the US is bound to have, the day after, an effect on his own decision-making policy and likely... Read More

Just weeks after finishing a two and a half year prison sentence for "Holocaust denial," 92-year-old Ursula Haverbeck has been convicted again by German courts, this time for an interview she gave in 2018 that affirmed her view that Jews were not systematically killed during World War II and that the gas chambers at Auschwitz...

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

Last month, Townhall.com columnist Marina Medvin published a column about letters allegedly written by Leon Morin, a 29-year old soldier who helped liberate the Dachau concentration camp in 1945. In his letters, Morin made a number of eyebrow-raising claims about Dachau—claims that Medvin swallowed uncritically: The camp contained a gas chamber disguised as a shower... Read More

The German Leader’s Reply to the American President’s Public Challenge
Of the many speeches made by Adolf Hitler during his lifetime, certainly one of the most important was his address of April 28, 1939. It was also very probably the most eagerly anticipated and closely followed speech of the time, with many millions of people around the world listening to it live on radio or... Read More
There is a very real attempt to rewrite history as we speak. A history that is at the root of what organises our world today, for it is understood that who controls the past, will have control over our present and our future. This attempt to rewrite history is of the most paramount significance because... Read More
I first read the memoirs of General Heinz Guderian, Germany’s foremost tank commander during the Second World War, while I was still in high school. I have to say that Guderian’s whole deportment immediately appealed to me. Here was a man of great dynamism, loyalty, and innovation; one who understood service and command, and who... Read More

I have a distinct dislike for the journalistic class as a whole.
