Oppenheimer Lied About the H-Bomb

Scanned at the American Institute of Physics, Emilio Segre Visual Archives.

Jewish scientist enthusiastically supported American A-bomb development when he anticipated the weapons would be used against Germany — but opposed American development of the H-bomb when the adversary might be the USSR and the Communist bloc.

ONE OF THE GREAT excuses given by Julius Robert Oppenheimer (pictured) and other scientists of death in their vehement opposition to the development of the H-bomb after World War II was that Russia did not have it and would not in fact have any nuclear weapons, in Oppenheimer’s exact words, “for a long time to come.”

When the Soviet Union detonated an A-bomb in the atmosphere in 1949, Truman had no choice but to order America to start to work on the H-bomb, which he did on January 31, 1950, even though the Oppenheimer crowd was highly critical of his decision. Oppy only quieted down when the Russians tested their highly publicized “deliverable” H-bomb on Aug. 12, 1953, less than a year after America’s first H-bomb went off on Oct. 31, 1952.

We now discover that Oppenheimer and Co. had actually been assuring Americans that Russia had no H-bomb for almost two years after a Russian fusion blast had been detected by the U.S. Air Force (see Blumberg and Owens, Energy and Conflict, G P. Putnam’s Sons, p. 266). Theodore F. Walkowicz, the former head of the federal government’s Scientific Advisory Group, recently admitted that in early 1951, “there was a Russian shot fired that we did not understand … It was understandable only in assuming that there had been a thermo­nuclear component to it. It wasn’t a pure fission shot. There had to be fusion involved in it.”

A special group of scientists was picked to evaluate the air samples. Walkowicz said that John von Neumann, the Hungarian-Jewish mathematical whiz, reported, “There was something chilly and strange in the debris samples. The implication was that it should be understood only in terms of there having been a fusion component in the shot.”

Many years later Harrison E. Salisbury, a New York Times reporter and top-ranking Kremlinologist, confirmed the 1951 Russian H-bomb test in an introduction to a collection of essays by Andrei Sakharov, the Russian bomb-father turned dissident. “The first Russian experiment in hydrogen fusion,” Salisbury wrote, “occurred months before those of the United States. Sakharov was responsible for this.”

The above information points inescapably to the conclusion that Oppenheimer already knew about the Russian fusion shot even while he was opposing America’s H-bomb program and telling everyone that Russia had no such weapon. As his racial cousins continue to sanctify him with a never-ending series of laudatory plays, TV biographies, books and magazine articles, Oppenheimer’s treasonable activities seem ever darker, ever more dastardly and ever more Rosenbergian.

I thought the idea for the nuclear bomb was taken from operation paper clip! I thought it was german scientists who developed it and did a controlled explosion on rugen island

This is still disputed. The Germans are rumored to have conducted two small nuclear tests(about 1 kiloton or less) just before the end of the war! For more details, you may read: “Hitler’s Bomb”, by Rainer Karlsch. The story seems quite credible to me, historically and scientifically.
