Below is a partial list of the few independent radio hosts, newspapers and bloggers who have stepped up to support Truth at Last since its publication in June 2012. Our requests for coverage and radio time have been rejected — more accurately, ignored — by the vast majority of media outlets. “The Establishment’s Contempt for the Truth,” the title of the last chapter of Truth at Last, continues to describe the media’s hostility to the truth in the Earhart matter. The longtime policy of the U.S. government, in conjunction with its media allies, that still protects the truth in the Earhart disappearance as a sacred cow, is the major storyline surrounding this book and our mostly futile efforts to inform the public about this American travesty, the very definition of frustration. To those who have helped in this effort, we extend our heartfelt thanks.

What your excellent book does is prove without a doubt that both Wendell L. Wilkie and John L. Lewis were correct about FDR in 1940. The President of the United Mine Workers, Lewis endorsed Republican, Wilkie in a patriotic effort to stop Roosevelt’s move to set a precedent for dishonest power after having dealt with Roosevelt and observing first hand what a backstabber he was!
Fact is FDR was a ruthless guy who set people up and then let them go down to serve his political needs without remorse or responsibility. Amelia Earhart was an extremely naive woman who failed to realize what she was getting herself into! I listened to the first part of Mike Campbell’s informative interview on Fringe Radio whose second hour I haven’t been able to find!
Roosevelt wanted war with Japan and his using Earhart who didn’t have the kind of military training such an operation required to engage in espionage without the permission of Congress is telling! Nazi Germany was the focus of evil of the civilized world yet FDR allowed an ocean liner with Jews trying to escape the Holocaust to flounder in the Caribbean when he refused it entry into US ports and discouraged Batista’s Cuba from giving it entry all the while seeking the US Jewish vote! Like Earhart’s situation, these poor Jews were forced to return to Europe where they were murdered by Nazis!
Roosevelt was an experienced backstabber whose political career was a trail of betrayal of different groups whose support was crucial to him but were all expendable! From the betrayal of Gov Alfred E. Smith of NY to Amelia Earhart, the fact that there hasn’t been more honesty regarding Roosevelt as an individual in politics is not to the media’s credit!
The Japanese were ruthless but had been allies of the US and British in WWI! The history of Asia to VietNam would have been very different if Roosevelt had been as reasonable with them as he was with Churchill whose British Empire wasn’t always nice and civilized either!
Fact is Earhart’s tragedy proves that Roosevelt was engaging in acts bordering on war with the Japanese where there was no compelling US interest which should have been to isolate Nazi Germany not gain it an ally in Japan! The fact that Earhart’s first navigator, Manning backed out the way he did, proves that Amelia Earhart’s secret mission was doomed from the beginning from a professional espionage and aeronautics perspective that Manning possessed!
Amelia Earhart’s situation was that Roosevelt got her involved in a political game to provoke an incident with Japan! When the Japanese captured her instead of shooting her down as Roosevelt probably hoped they would do, it created a potentially damaging political situation for him! Roosevelt’s subsequent actions angered the Japanese who chose not to publicly execute her for political purposes. Roosevelt’s spying allowed him to know the attack on Pearl Harbor in advance so the 2 aircraft carriers weren’t there that the Japanese counted on taking out!
Of course, like Amelia Earhart, the sailers and civilians killed there whose lives could have been saved, weren’t! It is easy to see where Obama and the modern Democratic Party get their inspiration and why they protect Roosevelt who was so much better than Obama which is scary as the world is a much worse place today for the USA!
Well said, OSS, good to know someone has listened to a link on this site. Recently when I gave a presentation to a group of seniors at an assisted living facility, one loud dissenter was quite upset when I told them about how FDR abandoned AE and that protecting his phony legacy is the reason we have this “mystery” at all. This old cracker accused me writing the book only for money, and the young 30-something activity director scolded me for raising my voice to this guy. She wouldn’t recommend my presentation to others because coming into her “house” and upsetting her people was “unprofessional.”
My point being that there are still blind and ignorant, old and young among us who believe all the lies and propaganda about the reprobate FDR. And you’re right, Obama is the latest in this perfidious tradition of leftism in America.
If you lived in a small patch of islands and a plane landed on a reef and you saw that, it would be in your memory forever.
America’s Esther: How Amelia Earhart saved her people.
If the American zombies are ever to wake up, they will have to accept the truth about Amelia Earhart. In the years b4 Pearl Harbor, the enemies of the white race were desperate to rescue Joe Stalin from the Germans.
The conventional wisdom is that Esther saved her people. I would like it also to be conventional wisdom that Amelia Earhart saved her people. But people have come to accept the notion of “fake news.” Everything about Amelia Earhart on tv or in the newspaper has been false. Accepting the truth about Amelia starts one on the road to accepting what Uncle Sam’s wars are about.
I posted the below comment #56 at https://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/history/item/26428-was-amelia-earhart-a-u-s-spy
Amelia Earhart did make it to wikipedia’s greatest misses. Someone there is keeping an eye on what is said about her.
Please check the link below.
Not all ULTRA intercepts of Japanese radio messages have been locked up. On page 203 of INDIANAPOLIS one of 500 intercepts on July 30, 1945 is a report of 3 torpedoes sinking a large ship.
Too bad no one was alerted to the sailors floating in the ocean.
Who was allowed to know what and when back in those days.
I must say that this book(INDIANAPOLIS) was a lot better than I expected it be. I intend on sending a message to Lynn Vincent.
William Manchester — Amelia Earhart.
The local library(Sibley IA) sold a number of books for $.25 each. Amelia Earhart appeared in the index of one, Manchester wrote about stories of a Japanese capture.
Manchester had been chosen by the Kennedys to write a book about the assassination and Jackie sat down with him for ten hours of interviews, fuelled by jugs of daiquiris and packets of cigarettes. She soon regretted the arrangement and sought to stop the book’s publication, insisting that the recordings of the interviews should be deposited in the JFK presidential library, where they will remain under seal until 2067.
I hope to find out how Manchester came up with his ideas about Amelia Earhart.
No mention of Mike Campbell in the following link.
A neighbor invited me over to watch https://www.travelchannel.com/shows/expedition-unknown/episodes/amelia-earhart?
I do not plan on watching it again. I believe it had NoonAn sitting in the co-pilot seat next to Amelia Earhart. I thought he was in the rear of the airplane.
There is a rule in the public relations business that it does not matter what people say about you as long as they spell your name right.
There seems to be some carfully crafted agit-prop when I add Josh Gates’s program to the recent National Geographic special with Robert Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic.
Can that much bad information be accidental?
Amidst the tidal wave of agit-prop about Amelia Earhart an occasional sliver of truth slips thru.
A reprint of a 1985 review of the
Loomis book recently appeared on the internet.
The enemies of Revilo Oliver have never denied his scholarchip so I am not surprised that Amelia EArhart showed up on Oliver”s radar 35 years ago.
Most people would say “with friends like Revilo Oliver — I do not need eneimies.”
His work seems to have mostly got the silent treatment.
Thanks Jerry. Mr. Oliver should fast-forward to 2020. The essay he features is a reprint of a Liberty Magazine piece from 1985! If he really cared about the Earhart story, he would do a bit more research. Just sayin’.
Thanks anyway for your comment on his site.
For the record — Revilo Oliver died Aug 20, 1994.
The first comment of the reprint of the vintage 1985 contains this from:
Mike Campbell’s work on the Earhart mystery is second to none. He endorses Loomis (and others). https://earharttruth.wordpress.com/2018/07/16/noted-earhart-book-review-removed-from-internet/
But his entire blog is very good
Oliver has his admirers. His vintage 1985 article might get his club to get updated on Amelia Earhart.
It has occurred to me that you might not want Oliver’s people visiting your blog.
Thanks Jerry, I did see BuelahMan’s comment, and know him from past contacts.
I take your last comment to mean that you think “Oliver’s people” wouldn’t approve of my message. That’s OK, at least it’s another source out there, and a few more who wouldn’t have otherwise known about it might appreciate learning the truth.
Hi. This is Robert Grant Wealleans. In August, 2019, I was looking at old aerial photos (1938-42) and found Earhart’s Electra on the reef at Nikumaroro or Gardner Island. See for yourself at my website, or find the photos easily online and enlarge them yourself – especially the 1941 aerial photo of the SS Norwich City. Read my book “Amelia Earhart: Final Days. Note: I must amend my work to exclude the IJN Koshu from picking them up due to its refueling on july 13th on its way to join the search. This leaves only that mysterious story of a Japanese fishing boat picking them up before July 9 in order to get them from Gardner / Nikumaroro to prison at the hands of the Japanese, and before the USS Colorado seaplanes showed up. As for the remains of her airplane today?
The lagoon entrance is a few hundred meters away from the 1942 position on the reef and this is why Robert Ballard found not one scrap of aircraft aluminum in the ocean. Many native anecdotes of airplane parts washing up on lagoon beaches, the airplane visible on the reef at low tide, etc, lead to this conclusion. We may yet see a part of her airplane recovered. As to their fate? Still mysteries to be solved.
I’m not satisfied with the FB page link I provided above, and thus created a “go-daddy” web page (link below) for some thoughts about Earhart & Noonan, and photo enlargements of the SS Norwich City shipwreck (1938-1942) where, especially the ’41 photo, shows the Lockheed Electra in the shallow water at the surf line, starboard stern of the ship. The 3 photos, especially the ’38 photo, and the so-called “Bevington object” or landing wheel enhanced photo, document the Electra’s journey in the tides over 4.5 years from 440 meters north and port of the wreck (landing wheel estimated location) to starboard of the wreck by June, 1941. In my book, Amelia Earhart: Final Days, I do speak to the Japanese capture theory, and speculate that a Japanese ship, possibly that mystery fishing boat, took the duo off-island (Nikumaroro) before July 9, 1937 and delivered them to the Koshu or to Mili Atoll and eventual imprisonment in Garapan. The Nat’l Archives of the USA do tell us how suspected spies, even those in the yachting crowd, were treated poorly and brutally by the Japanese. One Frenchman was released, I believe, only because he had an American wife. I salute all who toiled to find the truth about Earhart and Noonan’s disappearance. I only ask that this surprise evidence hidden in old aerial photos is given scrutiny and further analysis unlike Ric Gillespie who shut my thread down almost immediately–I resigned! I suppose, I must have spoiled his 30 year lock on the narrative, and the fact that certain groundwork was not done. If you believe in that landing wheel, then you must also believe other photos might show her aircraft debris? My HS friend, Patrick S. served in the 199th as a G-4 in Vietnam. He did photo recon intelligence. He agrees that the “X” shaped object in the ’41 photo is real, no illusion, aluminum or other metal, and fits the general nose configuration of the Lockheed Electra. I am presently hunting for the original photo or negative for a hopeful and better clarity. Any help is welcome as more truth is added to this quest. Robert Grant Wealleans
I gave Richard Frank a copy of your book.
He seems like a nice and sincere guy.
At the MN WW 2 roundtable, I was able to ask him about General Vandegrift comment that Earhart died on Saipan after being picked up by the Japanese.

Richard Frank is just another establishment toady who parrots the official U.S. government line about Earhart. I’m sure he’s found that it’ s much safer and he sells more books that way. Notice how he quickly answered your question and got away from the Earhart subject. Clearly he’s not comfortable talking about it, because he’s probably aware that he’s repeating lies. Any honest person who looked into the subject, especially a “learned historian” like Frank, would at the very least, express interest in the massive amount of evidence that puts Amelia and Fred on Saipan. Frank has exposed himself as a fraud.
Thanks for trying, but I’m afraid you’ve wasted a perfectly good copy of TAL by giving it to someone who has no interest in learning the truth about Amelia Earhart. His friends wouldn’t approve!
Hi Guys, a vintage aircraft in pieces revealed itself on Nikumaroro last year after no doubt a storm passing through, there is a 39ft cylindrical section and 110ft behind it to the east is a half exposed radial engine and wheel. The engine measurements were 4.5ft in diameter. Between the fuselage and engine is the exhaust torn off after the engine has detached. There are some other parts there too but I can’t confirm what they are . However, they are definitely not coral. A storm has since passed through Nikumaroro Island and all that now shows is a very small part of what is no doubt a fuselage. I don’t know if this is Amelia’s Electra but what I do know it is wreckage of an old plane that so happens measures exactly the same. I have officially reported the wreckage to the ATSB as it would be there jurisdiction in the Kiribati area.
Hi Guys, here is a link with the latest findings on Nikumaroro Island.
Readers should note the several comments below this nonsense, perfectly reflecting the abject ignorance that surrounds the truth in the Earhart disappearance. I hope at last a few of you will add your own comment, perhaps adding a bit of verisimilitude to this crap.
