In a carefully written and well-researched book published nearly 50 years after the author's death, former president Herbert Hoover details the folly, duplicity and great harm of US policy during World War II, and persuasively debunks the popular, entrenched view of America's role in the global clash as the "good war." In a book he considered his most important, Freedom Betrayed, Hoover examines president Franklin Roosevelt's record of deceit and lawlessness in promoting war in Europe, pushing the US into war, and aligning the US with Stalin's tyrannical regime. Hoover, one of the best informed and most principled public figures of the twentieth century, was devoted to America as a bastion of liberty, and supported a US policy of non-intervention in foreign wars.

As ever more historians acknowledge, President Franklin Roosevelt broke the law and lied to the American people in a deceitful campaign to promote war in Europe, and then to get the US to join in the "Good War" against Germany. "Freedom Betrayed," the recently published book by former US President Herbert Hoover, is yet another authoritative debunking of the prevailing, official view of the US role in World War II. America's purported role as the world's "leader," with the right to prod other countries into conforming with US policies and interests, was laid down in the years just before and during World War II by the US government, with critical backing by Hollywood and the American mass media.

A factual, reasoned 16-minute talk on the immense power and influence of the “Jewish lobby” in the US, and its harmful role, especially in directing US Middle East policy. As long as this power remains entrenched, there will be no end to the Jewish-Zionist domination of American political life and the mass media, Zionist oppression of Palestinians, the Israeli threat to peace, and the bloody conflict between Jews and non-Jews in the Middle East.

In July 1944 a group of German conspirators tried to kill Hitler and violently seize power in Berlin. The conspiracy's most dynamic figure was Col. Claus von Stauffenberg, who set a bomb to kill Hitler. Although it killed three men and seriously injured others, Hitler survived with only minor burns and bruises. In Germany today the anti-Hitler conspirators are honored as exemplary men of courage, conscience and principle. They are similarly portrayed in a major US motion picture, "Valkyrie," starring Tom Cruise and Kenneth Branagh. But this idealized portrayal is a "politically correct" distortion of reality. The attempt to assassinate Hitler and seize power was doomed to fail, and in fact collapsed very quickly, because it was poorly planned and ineptly organized, because it was based on a brazen lie, and because the conspirators did not understand the sentiment in the German military and among the German people. They also totally misunderstood the attitude of the Allied leaders, who sought not merely to destroy the Hitler regime, but Germany as a nation. By today's standards, von Stauffenberg and the other leading conspirators were "Nazis." They supported the policies and principles of the National Socialist government for at least five years, and only belatedly turned against the Hitler regime.

Much of what's written about the role of Christianity in Third Reich Germany, and about Hitler's views on religion, is grossly distorted or just plain wrong. The official program of Hitler's National Socialist Party expressed support for "positive Christianity, and nearly all NS Party members were either Evangelical Lutherans or Roman Catholics. Although Christianity had a favored status in the Third Reich, Germans were free to profess any religious outlook, or none. In many public statements Hitler affirmed a religious and spiritual outlook, and expressed admiration for Christian ethics and traditions. But privately he grew steadily more critical of the Christian worldview. Runetime: 50:44 mins.

Christianity had a favored status in World War II Germany. For example, Christian crosses were displayed in many public school classrooms and other public buildings, especially in Bavaria and other largely Catholic regions. German army soldiers' belt buckles bore the words "God With Us,” and churches in wartime Germany were packed. In spite of some tensions between religious and political leaders, the vast majority of Germans (including the clergy) remained loyal to Hitler and his regime to the bitter end. Many people mistakenly accept the propaganda view that during World War II the US and its allies supported Christianity, while Germany and its Axis partners were satanically anti-religious. But America’s most important military ally was the Soviet Union, a belligerently atheist state that ruthlessly suppressed religion. Runtime: 50:28 mins.

In this 75-minute address at an IHR meeting in southern California on Sept. 29, 2012, Weber tells what he learned and accomplished during a recent visit to Iran. Among the highlights of his nine-day stay was a guest appearance on an influential prime-time public affairs television show, a meeting with the nation’s President, and a well-received two-hour lecture on “The Zionist Lobby in America” given to a gathering of 800 Tehran university students. Weber also speaks about how Iranians live and work, and the country’s social, cultural and political life. He also takes a look at the history of US-Iran relations, and the prospects for war against the country by Israel or the US.

Address by the IHR director in Tehran on Sept. 6, 2012. Nearly all of the 800 people in the “Friendship Salon” hall are Iranian university students, about half of them women. As he speaks, Weber’s remarks are translated into Farsi. His address, which lasted about two hours, includes a Q and A session. In this talk, titled “The Zionist Lobby in America,” Weber emphasizes the Jewish-Zionist role behind the relentless campaign of smears against Iran, and the many threats by Israel to attack the country. He also speaks about the Jewish grip on Hollywood and American cultural and political life, and about widespread misconceptions in the US about Iran. Runtime: 131 minutes.

To deal with the massive unemployment and economic paralysis of the Great Depression, both the Roosevelt government in the US and Hitler’s government in Germany launched innovative and ambitious programs. Although Roosevelt’s “New Deal” programs helped only marginally, the Third Reich’s much more focused and comprehensive policies proved remarkably successful. Within three years unemployment was banished and Germany’s economy was booming. This remarkable achievement is little known and rarely acknowledged. Runtime: 35:38 mins.

A major factor in America's ever more obvious decline, says Weber in this insightful, informed and vigorously presented talk, is that the guiding ideologies and operative historical narratives of both conservatives and liberals are fundamentally defective. The often-repeated boast of American "exceptionalism," he says, is not just ignorant and arrogant, it's dangerous. Address given at an IHR meeting, Dec. 10, 2011. Runtime: 44:06 mins.

Mark Weber reveals how businesses, schools and agencies block access to the IHR website and other sites hated by Zionists using programs of large webfilter companies that censor and smear the IHR on the basis of a deceitful double standard. Weber and the show's host also discuss the breakdown of American society and the factors behind the dissolution. Politicians of both major parties, along with those who control our cultural and educational life, have for years been leading America in the wrong direction with harmful views and programs based on false notions about history, society and life.

Host Phil Tourney, a survivor of Israel's 1967 attack on the USS Liberty, has been active in raising public awareness of the harmful consequences of the US-Israel alliance. Weber and Tourney talk about the Jewish-Zionist grip on the US media and political and cultural life, and about Christian Zionists, who shamefully betray fellow Christians living under Israeli oppression. The two men also discuss Tourney's new book, and how the leaders of both major parties have betrayed the interests of the people.
