Armenians are beating on the doors of state capitols and the United States Congress in Washington, D.C. whining and begging for handouts and for resolutions condemning Turkey and asking for support of their bogus genocide claim of 1915. The reason the Armenians have created their fake genocide industry” is to try to talk the Christian world out of billions of dollars of foreign aid and to talk Turkey out of land and money, as well. There are several basic reasons to prove that the Armenians are not truth tellers because there was no Armenian genocide of 1915, as they want Christians of the world to believe.

- Turkey didn’t become a nation until 1923 — more than 8 full years AFTER the Armenians claimed a massacre by the government of the Ottoman Empire.

- After World War I, Armenia made two attempts to claim a massacre during the Paris Peace Conference. The Armenians, through their paid agents in Europe, wanted land and damages from the Ottoman government. The Peace Conference heard the Armenian false claim twice and gave them nothing (-0-).

The Armenians have twice had their day in court yet they continue to murmur, mooch and whine, telling the same old worn out tall tale in an attempt to get something for nothing. Armenians couldn’t get anything from the Paris Peace Conference regarding their bogus massacre claim against the Ottoman government, so now 85 years later, they changed their story and want something for nothing from the Turks.

- Whatever did or didn’t take place in 1915 did not involve the Turkish government because it wasn’t even in existence at the time.

In recent years, Armenians have spent many millions of dollars buying American politicians (more than $14 million in campaign contributions over the past few years). This is a well planned Armenian campaign to get more and more foreign aid and to get state legislators to pass meaningless resolutions attacking modern day Turkey and to accuse this great American friend of a genocide which is absolutely a false allegation.


The truth is that for 70 long years the Armenians worked and did everything they could do to help the Soviet Union overthrow freedom throughout the world. The Armenians joined the Soviet Union freely and never attempted to prevent a Soviet takeover of their state. Armenia continues to this very day to be blood brothers with the Russians. Many Armenians even joined Hitler’s Nazis in an attempt to ethnically/racially cleanse Europe from Jews. Armenians also learned from their Nazi experience of ethnic cleansing, as they have now removed all but 5% of minorities from their small state.

There is a very good reason why the United States of America must refuse to get involved with the Armenian false “genocide industry”. Consider the following facts regarding American foreign policy and determine if the United States has any business at all in inserting itself into Turkish/Armenian affairs.

The United States waged the Philippine War (1899-1902). This war did much to show the people of the United States that the country should not attempt to obtain a colonial empire as many nations in Europe were doing at the time.

The Spanish American War took place in 1898. The basic public stated reason for this war was to free Cuba from Spain. Of course American special interests would remain in Cuba after the US won the war. When the Treaty of Paris was signed to end this war, U.S. President William McKinley had to make a decision about what to do with the Philippine Islands as they had just been taken from Spain along with Cuba.

McKinley thought about this question for several days. He later wrote:

President William McKinley

Pres. McKinley

"I went down on my knees and prayed to Almighty God for light and guidance. Then one night late it came to me that there was nothing left for us to do but to take them all, and educate the Filipinos and uplift them and civilize and Christianize them and by God’s grace do the best we could do by them, as our fellowmen for whom Christ died.” Perhaps the President didn’t realize that Spain, like the United States, was a Christian nation.

Unsaid was the fact the United States had an important national strategic interest in these islands. That American interest was to expand its network of navy coal stations for its growing Pacific Ocean fleet. Needless to say, many Filipinos did not want to be under the control and direction of the United States. And so it was that the three-year Philippine War began and American soldiers were killed and wounded expanding the work of the US Navy and taking the word of Christ to these islands.

Frederick Remington

Frederick Remington

Frederick Remington (1861 - 1909) was a newspaper artist who spiced up sensational stories for Randolph Hearst's New York Journal. When Hearst ran the story about American women being strip searched, Remington dutifully sketched a provocative picture of a naked women being systematically searched by three male Spaniards. Neither the story nor the illustration were based on fact, but went far to incite American outrage against Spain... allowing for the United States to more easily challenge Spain on the battlefield, in two separate wars.

Yet when The New York Times among many other "creative" news journals in the United States published made up tales of Armenian massacres supplied by the American arm of Britain's propaganda house (created exclusively by demented missionaries, as Arnold Toynbee would later reveal), for the purpose of inciting America to enter WWI on the side of the Allies, how could anyone expect these tall tales to be taken as historic fact in this day and age? I wonder.... hmmmm.... I wonder...

This was not a popular war within the United States. An anti-imperialist league was organized. Many prominent Americans joined it, such as author Mark Twain, labor leader Samuel Gompers, and industrialist Andrew Carnegie as did countless other American citizens who opposed this imperialistic war.

A book on the Philippine War

A book on the Philippine War

The United States sent as many soldiers as possible to the Philippines. Even after the soldiers won the slow moving war there was continued resistance to them by guerrillas. General Arthur MacArthur (father of Douglas MacArthur of World War II fame) was the commander of the American military presence in the islands. The General declared martial law and invoked General Orders 100, which had been first used by President Abraham Lincoln in the American Civil War in 1863.

This US military code of conduct on warfare permitted harsh measures during unconventional campaigns such as when General William Tecumseh Sherman made his famous Civil War “march to the sea.” It was the American civilians who paid a terrible price for this military action. The same was true for the Filipinos. The American war policy in the Civil War as well as in the Philippine War was as follows:

An occupying army had a duty to be humane in its dealings with civilians; to do otherwise would be stupid as well as immoral, for it would turn potential friends into foes. But likewise civilians had a duty not to resist; if they violated this duty, they would be dealt with harshly. {General Order 100} envisioned that combatants not in uniform would be treated like “highway robbers or pirates” and, along with civilians who aided them, they could be subjected to the death penalty.

Mark Twain

Mark Twain

US troops engaged in a number of atrocities and this created a scandal in the U.S. Mark Twain made the suggestion that the U.S. Congress should redesign the nation’s flag, “the white stripes painted black and the stars replaced by the skull and crossbones.”

It is also interesting to note that of the 30 American generals who fought the Filipinos from 1898 to 1902 — 26 of them obtained their combat experience in the American Indian Wars. These 26 generals engaged Native Americans in armed conflicts that took all their lands and placed the Indians on U.S. controlled reservations.

 The Philippine War

"Villages were destroyed, civilians murdered, prisoners tortured and mutilated along with a host of other atrocities. Many American officers and non-coms had served in the Indian Wars, and thus applied the old belief that 'the only good Indian was a dead Indian' to their relations with the Filipinos. This attitude, of course, was reciprocated by the native forces."


U.S.-- 4,234 dead and 2,818 wounded.
Philippines-- 20,000 military dead and 200,000-500,000+ civilian dead.

"...Caloocan was supposed to contain seventeen thousand inhabitants. The Twentieth Kansas swept through it, and now Caloocan contains not one living native....War is worse than hell."-- Soldier's Letter, Captain Elliott, of the Kansas Regiment, February 27th


Holdwater: The Philippine War was officially proclaimed "over" by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902, but actually continued on several islands for years. Only some ten years apart from the Armenian "Genocide," and the United States appears to have acted distinctly more genocidally (with the "the only good Filipino is a dead Filipino" mentality) than the Ottoman Turks (where massacres by government forces as policy have yet to be proven), and was responsible for perhaps more civilian deaths and atrocities (some historians estimate over half a million) than the Armenian casualties of 300,000 to 600,000 from all causes combined — including the famine and disease that did not discriminate among all Ottoman civilians. Yet the United States Congress has the audacity to bring up Armenian "Genocide" resolutions, year after year.  How do you like that?

I wonder why the U.S. Congress does not come up with an Algerian Resolution, honoring the couple of hundred thousand Algerian civilians who were done in by the French... and I wonder why the French Parliament does not similarly come up with a Filipino Resolution, honoring the perhaps over five hundred thousand Filipino civilians who were done in by the Americans? I wonder why both keep harping on the Armenian "Geno$ide"?

Contrast this American military series of actions to the Armenian bogus genocide claim:

The Armenians were citizens of the Ottoman Empire for more than 700 years and lived in peace with their neighbors. The Muslim Ottoman government permitted the Armenian Christians total freedom of religion during this long period of peace. Then came the Russians! Beginning in the early 1800s the Russians began a one hundred-year effort to take Ottoman lands by armed force. Each time the Russians started a war with the Ottoman Empire, the Armenian small minority population supported them based on the false Russian promise that Russians would give them free Muslim lands.

In 1915 the Russians again attacked the Ottoman Empire in its quest to obtain warm water ports. Once again the Armenians supported the Russians. In this Russian invasion they marched as far as today’s eastern modern day Turkey. The Russians were a real threat to capture the heart of the Ottoman Empire.

During this war Armenians, living behind the Ottoman army combat zone, engaged in nightly guerrilla attacks that disrupted the Ottoman army supply lines creating great disruption and damage to the Ottoman army. The Ottoman government made a direct appeal to the high priest of the Armenian Church asking for his help to stop the Armenian attacks on their supply lines. The high priest refused.

The reason the Armenian Church refused to help the Ottoman government was because it, too, supported the advancing Russians. The Ottoman government advised the high priest that they would be forced to remove all Armenians living behind their army if the attacks continued. The attacks in fact increased and the Ottoman government announced that it would move all Armenians from behind their army. The Armenian Church’s reaction, even before the actual removal began, was to ignore its role in causing the removal and the high priest responded by making up and telling the tall tale that the Ottomans were massacring large numbers of Armenians.

The truth was, of course, that the Ottomans had not even started the removal process and not a single Armenian had so much as packed a bag to leave when the Armenian Church’s great “massacre” tall tale campaign began. The historical truth is that it was the Armenian Church who must accept responsibility for much of the terrible things that happened to the Armenian people in eastern Turkey. The Armenian Church could have helped stop the acts of treason but refused to do so.

A Holdwater Interruption


Spanish General Valeriano Weyler y Nicolau

General Weyler

In January 1896, Spanish General Valeriano Weyler y Nicolau (1838 - 1930) became Governor in Cuba. In order to end rebellion, he initiated a program that became known as "reconcentrado"... resulting in the relocation of 1.6 million Cubans and, with lack of provisions, reportedly the death of hundreds of thousands. (The tragedy resulted in American outcries for Spain to remove Weyler, which Spain did in 1897.)

Over double the number of relocated Armenians with a similar number of deaths that may have resulted as a direct consequence of the relocation (whereas the number of dead Armenians resulted from all wartime causes combined, that did not discriminate among all Ottomans)...and yet... has anyone even HEARD of this historical episode? How come French and American politicians go crazy over the Armenian "Genocide," and they don't care about coming up with a "resolution" over, say, this other "genocide"? I wonder.... hmmmmm... I wonder...

The Ottomans did, in fact, later remove some one million Armenians from behind their military line, and of course, the guerrilla attacks stopped. The proof is that there were more than one million Armenian refugees yet Armenians today murmur and whimper that the horrible Muslim Turks massacred 1.5 million of their Christian forefathers in 1915. This is as massive of a tall tale as that told by the Armenian high priest’s claim of massacre.

The basic question is how could the Turks have murdered a half million more Armenians than who actually lived in eastern Turkey at the time? How can a million Armenians have been refugees and also been murdered at the same time? The Armenian tall tale of 1.5 million of their people being massacred is absurd and the historical evidence proves that the Armenians are not truth tellers! Historical evidence proves that it was the Armenian Christians who massacred far more Muslims in their selfish greed of wanting something for nothing than there were Armenians killed. Perhaps the Armenians have invented their very own system of “new math” that only they use and understand to fleece and deceive the Christian world!

What would have been the United States government’s response had it been subjected to such treason? Based upon the U.S. Army actions in the Civil War, the Indian Wars, and the War of the Philippines — the US government would have acted much like the Ottoman government. The Armenian guerrillas, who didn’t fight in Russian uniforms, as well as the Armenian citizens who supported and helped them, would have been treated as “highway robbers or pirates” just as Native Americans and Filipinos were treated. This is how the American army treated Native Americans and Filipinos — not to mention its treatment of Japanese Americans starting in 1942 during the 5 years of World War II.

Clearly today, neither a single United States state nor the United States Congress has any business or any right to pass meaningless resolutions attacking American’s friend and partner, Turkey. To back and support the bogus Armenian “genocide industry” is to approve of Armenian treason in 1915 as well as approving its acts of terrorism today on its neighbor Azerbaijan.

Consider this fact situation: Mexico attacks the United States and makes steady progress toward Washington, D.C. Native Americans support Mexico and wage hit and run attacks behind the American troops and disrupt United States military supply lines. Does any American really think that the US government would stand back and permit Native Americans to run wild and create problems for the army? Certainly not! Would any American stand back and permit some European country to claim we had committed a genocide when we removed Native Americans from behind our army when they were doing major harm to our soldiers’ defense of the United States of America. Certainly not!
Neither the United States government nor any individual state within the United States has any business sticking its nose into a sovereign nation’s effort to defend its lands. How can any U.S. state or the national government make a judgment call about a disputed action that took place more than 6,000 miles away more than 85 years ago? There is no real American interest to back and support Armenian treason and terrorism. To take sides unfairly, as some 26 U.S. states have done, is to give the Muslim world a good reason to hate Americans.

The sad fact of the matter is the politicians of the United States are taking the word of a gang of Armenian thugs just because they “claim” to be fellow Christians who were unjustly attacked by terrible Muslims. The Armenians are not truth tellers and Americans should learn truth for themselves before giving this unholy people billions of their dollars.


Armenia is a land-locked tiny state and can’t get along with its neighbors — never has! Armenians can’t even get along with its Christian neighbor Georgia. The United States has no national interest in supporting an ongoing “Christian” terrorist state. It is past time to stop wasting American Christian taxpayer dollars on a gaggle of ingrate Armenians. After September 11th it is past time for the United States to establish true friendships with Armenia’s Muslim neighbors, such as Azerbaijan. The United States must build friendships throughout the Muslim world and this will not be possible while American politicians are being bought and paid for by Armenian lobbyists.

What were the legislators or governors of the following states thinking when they voted for meaningless resolutions or when a governor issued a meaningless Proclamation condemning Turkey and supporting Armenia betrayal, deceit, treason and terrorism against the Muslim world? There is the dark stain of innocent Muslim blood upon the following state flags because of what state leaders have done unjustly and unfairly in the name of Christ.

The roll of dishonored states are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin.

Based upon all the evidence, the question must be fairly asked of each of these states — What right does your state have for passing a Resolution or issuing a Proclamation condemning Turkey for something that didn’t happen more than 85 years ago and 6,000 miles away from the United States? What state interest is there in involving any one of these Sates in an international question? NONE! It is sad to see each of these individual states inserting itself into a Christian/Muslim matter and choosing the corrupt “Christian” state side rather than truth and honesty. To do such a thing is un-American!

How much money did the Armenian lobbyists spend in each of these states to get such worthless-meaningless Resolutions and Proclamations issued? Other than Armenian lobbyist’s self- interest what reason does a single American have in meddling in affairs of other countries? NONE! It is horrible actions such as these Resolutions and Proclamations that cause people in the rest of the world to think of “The Ugly American.” It is past time for Americans to seek out truth and refuse to help terrorists just because the terrorists know how to lie and to call themselves fellow Christians. It just doesn’t make sense to allow religion to unfairly rule United States foreign policy as it does in too many cases like this one today.

...Is to expose the mythological “Armenian genocide,” from the years 1915-16. A wartime tragedy involving the losses of so many has been turned into a politicized story of “exclusive victimhood,” and because of the prevailing prejudice against Turks, along with Turkish indifference, those in the world, particularly in the West, have been quick to accept these terribly defamatory claims involving the worst crime against humanity. Few stop to investigate below the surface that those regarded as the innocent victims, the Armenians, while seeking to establish an independent state, have been the ones to commit systematic ethnic cleansing against those who did not fit into their racial/religious ideal: Muslims, Jews, and even fellow Armenians who had converted to Islam. Criminals as Dro, Antranik, Keri, Armen Garo and Soghoman Tehlirian (the assassin of Talat Pasha, one of the three Young Turk leaders, along with Enver and Jemal) contributed toward the deaths (via massacres, atrocities, and forced deportation) of countless innocents, numbering over half a million. What determines genocide is not the number of casualties or the cruelty of the persecutions, but the intent to destroy a group, the members of which are guilty of nothing beyond being members of that group. The Armenians suffered their fate of resettlement not for their ethnicity, having co-existed and prospered in the Ottoman Empire for centuries, but because they rebelled against their dying Ottoman nation during WWI (World War I); a rebellion that even their leaders of the period, such as Boghos Nubar and Hovhannes Katchaznouni, have admitted. Yet the hypocritical world rarely bothers to look beneath the surface, not only because of anti-Turkish prejudice, but because of Armenian wealth and intimidation tactics. As a result, these libelous lies, sometimes belonging in the category of “genocide studies,” have become part of the school curricula of many regions. Armenian scholars such as Vahakn Dadrian, Peter Balakian, Richard Hovannisian, Dennis Papazian and Levon Marashlian have been known to dishonestly present only one side of their story, as long as their genocide becomes affirmed. They have enlisted the help of "genocide scholars," such as Roger Smith, Robert Melson, Samantha Power, and Israel Charny… and particularly  those of Turkish extraction, such as Taner Akcam and Fatma Muge Gocek, who justify their alliance with those who actively work to harm the interests of their native country, with the claim that such efforts will help make Turkey more" democratic." On the other side of this coin are genuine scholars who consider all the relevant data, as true scholars have a duty to do, such as Justin McCarthy, Bernard Lewis, Heath Lowry, Erich Feigl and Guenter Lewy. The unscrupulous genocide industry, not having the facts on its side, makes a practice of attacking the messenger instead of the message, vilifying these professors as “deniers” and "agents of the Turkish government." The truth means so little to the pro-genocide believers, some even resort to the forgeries of the Naim-Andonian telegrams or sources  based on false evidence, as Franz Werfel’s The Forty Days of Musa Dagh. Naturally, there is no end to the hearsay "evidence" of the prejudiced pro-Christian people from the period, including missionaries and Near East Relief representatives, Arnold Toynbee, Lord Bryce, Lloyd George, Woodrow Wilson, Theodore Roosevelt, and so many others. When the rare Westerner opted to look at the issues objectively, such as Admirals Mark Bristol and Colby Chester, they were quick to be branded as “Turcophiles” by the propagandists. The sad thing is, even those who don’t consider themselves as bigots are quick to accept the deceptive claims of Armenian propaganda, because deep down people feel the Turks are natural killers and during times when Turks were victims, they do not rate as equal and deserving human beings. This is the main reason why the myth of this genocide has become the common wisdom.
