Jett Rucker

Jett Rucker was (really) born less than six months before V-E day in the United States. S/he represents him/herself as of either gender (but is not transgender) for security reasons. His/her spouse is in a profession that exposes him/her to retribution from people who oppose and punish Holocaust revisionism, hence all the vagueness. Rucker possesses an MBA degree from an Ivy League Institution and a CPA certificate from Michigan, and worked in accounting for 12 years before moving over to writing. S/he speaks, reads and writes French and German with near fluency and has relatives, long dead, who were Nazis, along with other relatives who served in the armed forces of the Allies fighting Germany in World War II. The scales fell from his/her eyes in 2010 and s/he has since been exposed to his/her neighbors via the Internet as a Holocaust revisionist, which has occasioned some awkwardness, particularly with the Jews among the neighbors, but all is peaceful.



Thomas Dalton’s article in this issue, “The Jewish Hand in the World Wars,” details successes of small groups of influential Jews in gaining control of the governmental apparatus in many countries, including notional democracies such as the United States. The process seems for the first time to have …

Until very recently, a map clearly predating Columbus’s first voyage of discovery was widely considered evidence that Norsemen had “discovered” North America first. In fact, at the time it came to light (that is, onto the market), it constituted the best, if not the only evidence of this notion; discovery …

The prospect of American military intervention in the Syrian imbroglio dominated global news through most of this September past. As the situation festered, it appeared that the Obama administration had in mind to fire a number of its super-accurate missiles into Syrian territory to “punish” the forces—said to be the …

The industrial complex erected by the German government on a Polish army base at Auschwitz (now Oświęcim, Poland) has long been labelled a “death camp” on the strength of the great numbers of people forcibly sent there as part of extensive ethnic-cleansing programs and as laborers as World War II …

For much of recent history much has been written, and read, of the “blood libel” on the Jewish people spread among the populaces of Europe and the countries elsewhere populated by Europeans. The story has countless variants, most of them involving the abduction of non-Jewish babies for ritual slaughter in …

As a founder and the namesake of the anti-Zionist Website Mondoweiss, Philip Weiss has become a global icon of Jewish conscience regarding the depredation of Palestine and Palestinians by the colonialist theocracy called Israel. As an observant Jew in his own right, Weiss has since 2006 occupied and well served …

Claims by gay activists and their supporters for the number of homosexuals killed by the Third Reich reach as high as one million, and assertions that it was a quarter of a million or half a million are common. The actual number of gays who died or were killed in …

Misha (deWael) Defonseca was unquestionably a victim, if a “collateral” victim, of the Germans who were occupying her country of Belgium when she was four years old. They executed both of her parents after duly trying them as resistance fighters and finding them guilty. That all this, including their execution, …

It took the Church a long time to decide Galileo Galilei’s advocacy of heliocentrism (the idea that the earth revolved around the sun, instead of vice-versa) was heretical. Galileo was already 52 when he committed what turned out to be his signature heresy, and 68 when he was sentenced to …

Gizmo was our faithful family dog for eighteen years before we “put him down” a few years ago. Our neighbors and friends were suitably sympathetic, and their reaction was entirely appropriate; we were rather broken up about it for several days. It was worst for our children, who had literally …

If the pinnacle of the Holocaust Movie genre has been reached, it may have happened in 1993, when Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List garnered seven academy awards and untold millions of dollars in royalties for the film magnate who has since declared that the reason he has honored Planet Earth with …

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was as much an artist as poet, as much a printmaker as philosopher, but I fell in with the legions guided by his spirit when I encountered a passage that comes from a public address of his sometime around 1810 that appears as follows in …

This issue of Inconvenient History features an article by Friedrich Jansson that is appropriate to the Year 2014, designated by the Sejm (legislature) of Poland the Year of (Jan) Karski, the intrepid courier/witness for the London-based government-in-exile of Poland, born in Poland one hundred years ago. The article discloses, for …

In a recent contretemps in the media, an intrepid journalist tweeted the sentiment that “rape denial is like Holocaust denial: it’s a refusal to accept reality.” Actually, except perhaps for the punch line, there’s a good deal to be said for this comparison, though perhaps not much in keeping with …

Born in Brooklyn in 1933 to recent Jewish immigrants from Europe, Stanley Milgram was haunted most of his life by the Holocaust he narrowly missed. By the time he had gained his Ph.D. from Harvard and joined the faculty of Yale in 1960, he conceived a way to recreate at …

This issue of Smith’s Report must be the first ever that lacks the byline of Bradley Smith. Our namesake and “face” has given over what for anyone else would be their “golden years” to the fight for freedom to discuss openly what might be history’s most-contended subject. It is a …

The following is an imagined memorandum or e-mail from the colleague of a Harvard University professor who, in an undergraduate history class, stated a “sensitive” historical fact concerning the Holocaust. No professor at any American university is known to have done any such thing in any such setting, nor would …

Saints are canonized only after their deaths; there’s no such thing as a living saint. It was only after the deaths of Jesus Christ and Mohammed that their respective religions, Christianity and Islam, acquired the sweeping force that enabled their adherents to lay waste countless cities and countries, the while …

The opponents of revisionism—not counting the billion-dollar reparations programs—collect and spend as much money in a week as all the world’s revisionists in a year. If in 2014, revisionism commanded as much as a whole million dollars , the Holocaust memorials and theme parks, genocide-studies departments of a hundred universities, …

Banned as we are from “legitimate” fora such as “name” publishers, university faculties, and even (through the imposition of prejudicial “standards” of verification) from Wikipedia, we revisionists have been forced to take recourse in on-demand printing for our books and websites and blogs for our publications on the Internet. The …

Having already served more than three years in prison and had her license to practice law suspended, German ex-lawyer Sylvia Stolz consented to participate in a colloquium in Switzerland with the title “Against Censorship” in 2013, her first year out of prison. In that colloquium, which was conducted in German, …

Manhattan College in 2011 took a bold step: it appointed as head of its Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center a Muslim woman (who is, for what it’s worth, not Arab, and definitely not a convert to Islam from some other religion, or none). Dr. Mehnaz Afridi, born in Pakistan, …

Last month, Adolf Eichmann's daughter-in-law had the poor judgment to opine in a televised interview that she thought her father-in-law was a good person, a mere cog in a great machine that controlled his nation, and hadn’t even killed one person himself.

"Holocaust denial is ideologically motivated. The deniers’ strategy is to sow seeds of doubt..." This passage has been promulgated on the Web and in paper publications of the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Remembrance, Education and Research at least since 2004. So who is motivated by what?

One of my favorite things about b&bs is the books one finds in the great majority of them. These books aren’t today’s best-sellers; they might not even have been best sellers in their own day. Like books in general, most of them are rubbish, and/or, being fiction, are of little …

We in the West, particularly in the English-speaking areas most-exposed to the maunderings of Tom Brokaw,[1] have heard much about “the greatest generation,” the cohort of Americans (and perhaps British, French, and maybe even Soviet in about that order) who grew up during the Great Depression and went on …

US President Obama in a speech he made recently at the US Holocaust Memorial and Museum outlined the way Holocaust legendry is used to drag the United States and prospectively the rest of the world into wars initiated by Israel on the strength of its US backing.

The Institute for Historical Review recently distributed this link to a review of the fraud perpetrated by author Alex Haley in his famous Roots book and television series. The difference between Haley and Holo-fraudster Elie Wiesel? Haley never got a Nobel Prize. And why not, considering?

The self-glorifying "history" that every government crams down the throats of the young people they all force to attend school mostly goes ignored by its targets. Exceptional students take the trouble, for various reasons, to learn the material, and of these, a few take it seriously, absorbing some form or …

As a country, Poland over the last few centuries has sort of faded in and out, like the light of a firefly. But when it flares into existence, it has distinguished itself at an activity engaged in by repressive (read: all) states everywhere: the detention and torture of political prisoners …

The US Army hasn't conducted a concentration operation on US soil since 1942 (when it rounded up and incarcerated Japanese Americans), but the Army has recently put out a detailed manual for its operatives to follow when doing so again - on short notice, it would seem. Just supposing the …

A professor at George Mason University is making waves with a "laboratory" course he has been teaching for a few years now in how historical mythology is created, with emphasis, of course, on present-day media and environments such as the Internet. This article in The Atlantic describes the course and …

The International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists has put up 14 videos on their Web site to convey the talks given at their conference "Holocaust Denial and Freedom of Speech in the Internet Era" in Berlin last November. Most of the talks are aimed at suppressing both of the …

This Holocaust revisionist has a confession to make, and it’s worse than anything to which Bradley Smith confessed in his best-selling (?) Confessions of a Holocaust Revisionist: I have become a grudging admirer of Deborah Lipstadt. Yes, the Deborah Lipstadt who in 2001 with the able assistance of her publisher …

Yesterday's op ed by Daniel Ellsberg (of 1971 Pentagon Papers fame) provided a stunning retrospective on what Ellsberg calls the "different America" that dealt with him 40 years ago vis-a-vis the America that NSA Leaker Edward Snowden faces today for having committed "crimes" very similar to those committed by Ellsberg. …

It seems that some revisionists are able to get the USHMM to revise their story – or, in this case, to defrock a former saint of theirs. This New York Times article reports USHMM's and other Holocaust shrines' actions in the evolving case of "Italy's Schindler," Giovanni Palatucci, heretofore enshrined for …

Deborah Lipstadt and the host she leads have made it holy writ that anti-Semitism is the leading cause for “Holocaust Denial.” To people schooled in this concept, which is most of us, the idea that the process can proceed in the reverse sounds backwards. Is it possible then that the …

Something about gas is . . . creepy. Often, you can't see it. Supposedly, you can't run from it (not so, but it can be hard to tell which way to run). If it "gets" you, it doesn't leave visible marks, whether it kills you or not (again, effectively not …

The Holocaust-advocacy camp is resorting to expensive, cutting-edge technology to flog the dead horse in novel ways. Flush, as always, with more tax-exempt money than it knows what to do with, the Shoah Foundation at the University of Southern California is partnering with what sounds like a purpose-built contractor, Conscience …
