THOUSANDS OF BOOKS and papers belonging to the estate of Professor Revilo P. Oliver were stolen from Kevin Alfred Strom by his ex-wife with the collusion and assistance of the FBI and the “Joint Terrorism Task Force” and are now being flagrantly sold on Ebay by a vendor identifying himself as “Rick Remer” of Wardensville, West Virginia with the Ebay ID of “kaf780.” Kevin Strom, from whom the items were stolen, was chosen by Oliver himself, and the trustees of his estate, with the task of cataloguing and digitizing these invaluable papers, correspondence, and unpublished works. The digitizing work was only partially completed when Mr. Strom was arrested on false charges by the JTTF and incarcerated for two years, putting him in a position where he was utterly helpless to prevent the theft.
Remer makes no pretense of preserving Dr. Oliver’s legacy and sells the items to all and any takers, even trying to attract Jewish buyers and others potentially hostile to Dr. Oliver and his work with such titles as “Nazi,” “anti-Semitic,” and “Judaica” in his advertisements for the auctions. It is estimated that Remer has made tens of thousands of dollars from the sales.
REVILO OLIVER RECOGNIZED: The well-known commentator for the Spectator newspaper in Britain, Taki Theodoracopulos, has just published an essay in his online magazine which, at least tentatively and partially, attempts to restore the place of the great and Menckenesque writer Revilo P. Oliver in the pantheon of 20th century thinkers. Interestingly, the article is published over the byline “Nesta Bevan,” an obvious nom de guerre, since it is the maiden name of the late writer and partisan of our civilization Nesta Webster.
QUITE A FEW READERS have written to ask about the availability of Revilo P. Oliver’s posthumous book, The Jewish Strategy, which I published in 2002. Almost all print copies of this book were stolen from me — and quite possibly destroyed — by the same individual who worked with the government to falsely accuse me of heinous crimes.
THE FOUR FREEDOMS?: Corruption rules modern America. It is a truism, mentioned by Mike Gravel among many others, that both parties and their candidates take in considerable sums of money from hedge funds, oil companies, lawyers’ associations, and numerous multinational corporations — to say nothing of the Israel Lobby. But it’s nothing new.
A (much older) friend of mine, who worked for Army intelligence during World War 2, once told me that many Washington insiders routinely referred to FDR’s “Four Freedoms” as “The Rake Off, the Pay Off, the Shakedown, and the Fix.” And so it goes.
HAVING BEEN THROUGH (and ultimately rejected) the “right wing” and conservative movements early in my life, I have seen a great many books purporting to expose political or financial conspiracies. Quite a few are worthless. A significant number of these are so ludicrous as to actually serve the cause of those they ostensibly criticize, who may indeed covertly finance the nuttier tomes. A few are indispensable. Many also fall into the category of interesting, though flawed.
(Some fun favorites of mine in the worthless or bogus categories: The “militia” writer who claimed that most of us would die when the Earth passed through a “poison gas belt” in 1991, and who thoughtfully offered for sale special gas masks to save us; the prolific Spotlight advertiser who warned us about the giant crack that the Illuminati were going to engineer under the Atlantic Ocean, “proved by Bible prophecy”; and the 9-11 theorists who claim that there were no terrorists and no jets — all was a 3-D holographic projection. I could go on indefinitely.)
In general, I think that it’s insane to believe that groups — especially intensely ethnocentric minorities — never conspire; but believing that most of the evils of the world are the work of a “master conspiracy” is also pathological, in my opinion.
