Edwin Armstrong: Another White Genius Fleeced by the Jews
WE HAVE in these pages discussed the tragic life stories of two great White inventors, N. B. Stubblefield and Lee De Forest. The former came to grief at the hands of Wall Street stock swindlers. The latter was bilked out of a fortune by David Sarnoff’s Radio Corporation of America. Equally disheartening was the career of Edwin H. Armstrong (pictured), the inventor of FM radio. A great deal of Armstrong’s life was spent in litigation with RCA and other companies who had infringed on some of his forty-two patents.
In 1954, in utter despair at his treatment by companies who were making millions of dollars annually out of his inventions, he jumped to his death from the window of his New York apartment. What the obituaries did not say was that there was much more behind Armstrong’s suits than money. A friend of his, John Bose, recently testified, “If RCA or any of the others had just been willing to stand up and announce that they gave Armstrong full recognition for his inventions, he would have been satisfied and wouldn’t have cared about getting even a penny.”
Armstrong began his first FM (frequency modulation) broadcasts in 1937 from his own radio station in Alpine, New Jersey. Today there are thousands of FM stations throughout the world. The audio part of television is based on Armstrong’s pioneering work. Perhaps those most in debt to Armstrong are lovers of serious music, who are able to enjoy in the comfort of their own homes and for relatively little cost the high-fidelity reproductions of the most sublime musical creations of Western genius.
The financial beating given Stubblefield, De Forest and Armstrong calls into question the system that makes it possible. Can it be blamed on the free enterprise system itself, which at least in recent times seems to reward speculators and wheeler-dealers more than it does producers and inventors? Or can it be blamed on the perversion of free enterprise by people incapable of creating and understanding the system they are only interested in milking?

OUR NEW, remastered audio book edition of The Turner Diaries read by the author, Dr. William Pierce, is now available. You can get your copy now — the CDs are are shipping as soon as orders come in.
The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
We are proud to offer you the result, which can be ordered online via http://natall.com/td or by postal mail from National Alliance, Box 172, Laurel Bloomery TN 37680 USA. The fidelity of the disc is excellent: On a good speaker system, it sounds as if Dr. Pierce is with you, reading his book to you personally. There is nothing quite like hearing the man who created The Turner Diaries read it to you himself. And, by purchasing this mp3-CD, you will be supporting the important work of the National Alliance.Listen: Turner Diaries commercial
