by Robert Stinnett, who approves of FDR’s deceit. The author uncovered the McCollum Memorandum of October 7, 1940, the authenticity of which even his critics acknowledge. The memo’s significance isn’t that FDR followed it – there’s no hard evidence he read it – but rather that the memo was undoubtedly written to “please the boss.” Such a belligerent series of proposals – culminating in “If by these means Japan could be led to commit an overt act of war, so much the better.” – never would have been put on paper had they not been in the air, the atmosphere of the Roosevelt administration.Pearl Harbor: The Story of the Secret War

The White RoseDresden Fire BombingImmediately after Hitler’s invasion of Poland, England declared war on Germany in September 1939. England began bombing Berlin August 1940. The Blitz (Germany’s bombing of London) began September 1940 and lasted until May 1941. Von Braun’s rocket bombs against England started June (V-1) and September (V-2) 1944. The Dresden fire bombing by the UK and US lasted three days, from 13 to 15 February 1945. Norman Stone, Professor of Modern History at Oxford: “We went on bombing German cities months and months after it had been clear that we would win, and that Stalin would be as potentially deadly an enemy. Some of the bombing was just pointless. In the last days of the war, we struck at the old gingerbread towns south of Wurzburg, where there was no military target at all ... just refugees, women and children. Of these acts of gratuitous sadism, the worst was the bombing of Dresden.”
From their third leaflet: “... why do you not bestir yourselves, why do you allow these men who are in power to rob you step by step, openly and in secret, of one domain of your rights after another, until one day nothing, nothing at all will be left but a mechanized state system presided over by criminals and drunks?” (archive.org)Youth Resistance in Wartime Germany

At the opening NBI lectures in Washington, D.C. – October 1966 – Ayn Rand denounced U.S. foreign policy as “imperialistic going back to 1898.” And in her essay “The Roots of War” she wrote “The rise of a spirit of nationalistic imperialism in the United States did not come from the right, but from the left, not from big-business interests, but from the collectivist reformers who influenced the policies of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. For a history of these influences, see The Decline of American Liberalism by Arthur A. Ekirch, Jr.”
The conquest of the United States by Spain (pdf)The Civil War
A lecture from January 16, 1899 by William Graham Sumner. “We have beaten Spain in a military conflict, but we are submitting to be conquered by her on the field of ideas and policies. Expansionism and imperialism are nothing but the old philosophies of national prosperity which have brought Spain to where she now is. Those philosophies appeal to national vanity and national cupidity. They are seductive, especially upon the first view and the most superficial judgment ...” (archive.org)

“... saying that Israel and the United States are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: rather, the United States has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around.”
“... the mere existence of the Lobby suggests that unconditional support for Israel is not in the American national interest. If it was, one would not need an organized special interest group to bring it about. But because Israel is a strategic and moral liability, it takes relentless political pressure to keep U.S. support intact.”They Reply to Critics (archive.org)Israel Lobbying: The Attack on Mearsheimer and Walt

“In the aftermath of World War II, Zionists were bitterly hostile towards all Germans, and [Ronen] Bergman [in Rise and Kill First
] describes the campaign of kidnappings and murders they soon unleashed, both in parts of Europe and in Palestine, which claimed as many as two hundred lives. A small ethnic German community had lived peacefully in the Holy Land for many generations, but after some of its leading figures were killed, the rest permanently fled the country, and their abandoned property was seized by Zionist organizations, a pattern which would soon be replicated on a vastly larger scale with regard to the Palestinian Arabs.” — Ron UnzThe Routledge Atlas of the Arab-Israeli Conflict by Martin Gilbert

He argues that the county sheriff has the authority to protect citizens from federal agents.

Ron Paul 2012
Former U.S. Congressional Representative (Texas, nominally Republican), perhaps the only congress-critter who walked on two legs. When in office it was said that when you saw a vote of 434 to 1, you knew the 1 was Ron Paul. Unfortunately he waffles on the immigration issue, and has little sense of government corruption beyond socialism.
Some interesting thoughts by Tom Mullen. The Declaration of Independence was the greatest document in human history. As for the Constitution (pre-Bill of Rights), one has to wonder about some of its authors’ motivation. As Bill Kauffman writes elsewhere: “Our decline predates the Bushes, the Clintons, even the Kennedys. Trace it, if you like, back to the overthrow of the gentle Articles of Confederation and the triumph of Hamilton, Madison, and James Wilson over Patrick Henry, Luther Martin, and Melancton Smith in 1787-88.”

Oil is a vital commodity but there is no oil crisis. Even if oil became scarce there is nuclear power and who knows what other technical innovations that would flourish in a county free from crazy regulations and confiscatory taxation.
The Energy Non-Crisis
by Lindsay Williams. (Originally The Key to the Energy Crisis.) At a Ford Hall Forum lecture question period in 1976, when oil prices were record high, Ayn Rand said “I don’t believe there is an energy crisis.” This book presents evidence that the oil crisis of the 1970’s was manufactured by elements within the government. There is vastly more oil under Alaska’s North Slope than all of Saudi Arabia.
The Oil Reserve Fallacy
by Prof. Robert Kovarik. (archive.org)
“Proven reserves are not a measure of future supply.”
“... the Middle East does not have two thirds of the world’s oil reserves.”
The two thirds estimate refers “to a narrow category of ‘proven’ oil reserves, not to ‘every ... barrel of oil in the world’ ... .”
“According to a US Geological Survey report quietly published in 2000, there is more oil outside the Middle East than inside the region.” Saudi Arabia, to take one country, “may have one quarter of the world’s identified oil reserves ..., but it has only about 16 percent of all ultimately recoverable reserves ... .”

Myth: The World is Running Out of Oil – Peak Oil (video)
Interview with author of The Bottomless Well, Peter Huber.
Abiotic Oil ?
I was brought up on the idea that oil came from prehistoric plants, “fossil fuel,” and that therefore the amount of oil underneath the earth is necessarily very limited. But the notion that oil comes from prehistoric vegetation is conjecture, and it has competition. Some Russians maintain that oil is produced by an ongoing abiotic process, a process not involving living things, and at a rate that even today exceeds consumption. Apparently they have some good evidence.
There may be more methane hydrate than all oil, gas and coal combined. Work in progress.
