Thanks for posting this. I picked up a book in a junk store titled “Stalin History of a Dictator” published in 1971. Lots of interesting stuff in there, especially about WW2.

And when you read on x it gets worse...

“Bukovsky’s book about the story that these documents tell, Jugement à Moscou, has been published in French, Russian, and a few other Slavic languages, but not in English. Random House bought the manuscript and, in Bukovsky’s words, tried “to force me to rewrite the whole book from the liberal left political perspective.” Bukovsky replied that “due to certain peculiarities of my biography I am allergic to political censorship.” The contract was canceled, the book was never published in English, and no other publisher has shown interest in it. Neither has anyone wanted to publish EUSSR, a pamphlet by Stroilov and Bukovsky about the Soviet roots of European integration. In 2004, a very small British publisher did print an abbreviated version of the pamphlet; it, too, passed unnoticed.”

You’re welcome Rusty. I have little trust in books after the 50s’ but jewels are to be found after that period.

I’ve spent years debating my friends and relatives in Europe that we had a free press here, freedom of speech, liberty...but I was blind.

The Germans* killed 7 million? I’d add another 43 million to that and you get the amount of people killed in WW2, which Hitler and the German people were directly responsible for. >>(* I refer to the ‘’Nazis’’ as ‘’Germans’’, which they were. The revisionists like to say “Nazis’’ as if the “Nazis’’ were something that fell out of the clouds into Germany one day.)

“This is what Gorbachev told the Politburo in 1989: “Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost and perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant change in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our aim is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep.” (Italics CFP’s).

And disarming America is precisely what Gorbachev went on to successfully do.

It’s not as if if Gorbachev faded into the woodwork after his well celebrated arrival in America. To this day, he’s an active member of the Maurice Strong, George Soros triumvirate pulling the puppet strings of President Barack Obama.

No one eased the path for Gorbachev’s agenda to close federal military bases around the U.S. more than Nancy Pelosi.

“Pelosi’s involvement in the disposal of federal military surplus land is matched only by Gorbachev, who as founder of Green Cross International (GCI) devised a mechanism for converting American military bases to civilian uses converting the bases over to “global centers for sustainability.” (Canada Free Press, Nov. 15, 2006).

During her Presidio stint, it is alleged that she was an investor in a real estate investment called Presidio Partners.”

I’m no fan of Pat Buchanan, but I think he was right about this. He said we should not have allied with Stalin in WW2, we should have let the two Socialist tyrants, Hitler and Stalin, bleed each other white fighting each other.

Both Churchill and Roosevelt, of course, thought they could not win without Stalin.

Why doesn’t anyone care about the unread Soviet archives?

I'll give you one guess.

Well, that’s a lot of retrospect there for Pat. Maybe he should write an alternate history. Too bad we can’t see history forward.

“For evidence of this indifference, consider the unread Soviet archives. Pavel Stroilov, a Russian exile in London, has on his computer 50,000 unpublished, untranslated, top-secret Kremlin documents, mostly dating from the close of the Cold War. He stole them in 2003 and fled Russia. Within living memory, they would have been worth millions to the CIA; they surely tell a story about Communism and its collapse that the world needs to know. Yet he can't get anyone to house them in a reputable library, publish them, or fund their translation. In fact, he can’t get anyone to take much interest in them at all.”

I wonder if Hinsdale College would be interested?

Or Westminister College, site of the famous "Iron Curtain" speech?

None of the Conservative think tanks would want to fund translations, or perform archival work?

No American billionaire would want to take this on as a project?

“Nazis”, as THE only acceptable definition of the WWII bad guys, was the invention of the Soviet propaganda when they established their client state DDR, and wanted to distinguish between the “good” and the “bad” Germans. (The bad ones, the Nazis, were all in the Western sectors, needless to say. In face the East had its share of unrepentant National Socialists.) It’s caught up nicely in the West, just as the idea of “Racism”, also a Soviet propaganda anti-clonialist, anti-imperialist invention.

These things only confirm for me that history can only be understood if viewed through a spiritual or religious lens.

Profound truth.

Reagan Library might be interested in this. It's hard to believe that the entities you mentioned wouldn't be falling all over themselves to get that material.

I understand your premise and I know how the history was changed after 1945 in East Germany, to make it almost appear as if east Germans were communist comrades waiting for liberation. The reverse was very different. Racism in and of itself certainly isn’t Russian communist creation, it’s served it’s purpose through out history any time the charge has been thrown around. I just meant “the Nazis’’, where ever they hailed from in Germany, not something that fell out of the clouds one day. It’s a kind of ‘’third-person’’ view of the history, as if to say ‘’That wasn’t us, it was those ‘’Nazis’’.
