Eric Thomson asks, "If the Chinese invented all of those things for which they are given credit, how come in a thousand years they never improved upon a single one of them? I believe they copied from ancient White people."

Anthony Ludovici adds grist to the mill with his (White) Man's Descent from the Gods.

White man – know who you are! Don't let the "equalizing" bastards try to convince you otherwise.

OUR PEOPLE, THE ARYANS  by J.B. Campbell  (Liberty Bell, February 1997)
Great changes are coming regarding the historical record of our people, the Aryans. As we learn about our ancestors we learn about ourselves. This sort of learning is greatly feared by those who control education, information and entertainment – the modem mechanisms of control.

It is in the short-term interest of non-Aryan peoples to hide our historical record. We have effectively been cut off from our roots. We Aryans are forbidden by law to associate exclusively with our own kind. We are forbidden by law to complain about it, as well. No other people in North America or Europe is treated thusly. We may be the majority in this democracy but we are treated by our government as if we
were in a "people's republic," a persecuted minority without rights. This is all because we don't know anything about ourselves.

There has been an almost unbelievable find in the deserts of western China, in Sinkiang Province, now known in PC as Xinjiang. The Tarim Basin of the Täklimaken Desert is the burial ground of our Aryan ancestors, more than a hundred of whose corpses have been recovered from the naturally preserving effects of the dry sands and freezing temperatures. More than a thousand skeletons without muscle tissue and hair have also been discovered. The Chinese have known about them for many decades but have been resolute in their refusal to tell us much about them. Why? Because it is now confirmed that some of our Aryan ancestors moved into that part of China at least 4,000 years ago and brought their culture with them. Apparently, their culture became an integral part of the Chinese culture.

As National Geographic puts it in the March, 1996 issue, "The finding that the mummies significantly predate Han Chinese presence in the area is affecting modern politics and has caused cultural and political consternation in some quarters." For example, the article's author, Thomas B. Allen, relates the following: "At Niya I found a sherd of pottery bearing the fingerprint of the potter. Excited, I showed it to Wang Binghua, Xinjiang's leading archaeologist and an authority on Niya, who was traveling with us. I asked for permission to bring it back to the United States, where, I told him, a forensic anthropologist might be able to extract information about the potter by studying the fingerprint. Wang Binghua, a Han Chinese, held the pottery for a moment, then asked, "Would he be able to tell if the potter was a White man?" I said "I didn't know. He nodded and put the sherd in his pocket. I never saw it again."

Not much has appeared in our press, naturally, about this find. The few articles published contain, however, much wonderful information. An excellent report is found in the April, 1994 issue of Discover magazine. Author Evan Hadingham writes: "Where exactly did these apparent Caucasians come from? And what were they doing at remote desert oases in Central Asia? Any answers to these questions will most likely fuel a wide-ranging debate about the role outsiders played in the rise of Chinese civilization. As far back as the second century B.C., Chinese texts refer to alien people called Yuezhi and the Wusun, who lived on China's far-western borders; the texts make it clear that these people were regarded as troublesome 'barbarians.' Until recently, scholars have tended to downplay evidence of any early trade or contact between China and the West, regarding the development of Chinese civilization as an essentially homegrown affair sealed off from outside influences; indeed, this view is still extremely congenial to the present Chinese regime. Yet some archaeologists have begun to argue that these supposed barbarians might have been responsible for introducing into China such basic items as the wheel and the first metal objects. Exactly who these Central Asian outsiders might have been, however what language they spoke and where they came from is a puzzle. No wonder, then, that scholars see the discovery of the blond mummy as a sensational new find."

The scholars do. The overlords of our culture do not. This is dangerous science. Professor Victor H. Mair writes, "...the Wusun people who, described in Chinese sources as having blue-green eyes and red beards, were undoubtedly Indo-European or had interbred extensively with Indo-Europeans." (Journal of Indo-European Studies (JIES) Fall/Winter '95) These Tarim Basin people brought not only the wheel and bronze objects to China but also woven fabrics. In the Sept/Oct, 1996 issue of Archaeology magazine, we read the following by Powledge & Rose: "Study of garments worn by 3,000 year-old mummies excavated in western China's Tarim Basin (see Archaeology, March/April 1995) has yielded the world's oldest cashmere threads. Other mummies wore wool twills woven in a plaid design dating to 720 B.C. that required looms most likely brought by settlers from the Eurasian steppes."

"Irene Good of the University of Pennsylvania and Elizabeth J. W. Barber of Occidental College examined textile samples from two sites, Chärchän and Hami, where mummies have been excavated since the late 1970s by Chinese and Uighur scholars. Good identified the cashmere threads from Chärchän by their shape, fineness, and consistency of diameter. 'The Chärchän textiles indicate a high degree of skill in sorting and spinning fibers," she says. "The presence of cashmere shows a very sophisticated breeding of goats for the fleece." The plaid twill was dyed blue and derived from a hairy, rather than woolly, fleece. Barber says there is no evidence that the Chinese ever made wool twills on their looms, which were designed for silk, and that wool-weaving technology arrived with the western settlers of the Tarim Basin ca. 1800 B.C." (S.P.M. Harrington, Archaeology, Sept/Oct '96)

There is only one film of the mummies, produced by Scientific American Frontiers (SAF) for the Public Broadcasting System in 1995. Twelve minutes of a fifty minute program are devoted to the mummies. '"Dragon Science' – This special takes viewers to China, where host Alan Alda visits the site of the world's most spectacular mummy find – a trove of extraordinarily well preserved and richly robed individuals who died some 4,000 years ago..." Alda introduces Prof. Mair: "If it weren't for this man, the mummies would have probably remained an obscure curiosity. Victor Mair, a China scholar from the University of Pennsylvania, visited the museum soon after wed filmed..." When the Chinese officials realize that Mair and the film crew are associated, they ask the latter to leave. Soon after his visit a harsh article condemning Mair's work appeared in the state newspaper. "In China," says Alda, "even technical archaeological arguments can't be conducted freely... If the mummies were the trailblazers along this great world trade route [the Silk Road], four thousand years ago, it could mean that China acquired important new ideas from the west, and that's what irritates the government."

For those of us who will not be visiting the Ürümchi museum the video (Program # 602) is available from SAF at 800-315-5010.

One of the most fascinating details of these people is their fondness for the swastika, referred to delicately by National Geographic, March '96 as -a "moving sun, perhaps a sign of Mithraic worship." It is the hakenkreuz, shown carved in a bowl found in Niya. "What is more, the Tarim Basin people were fond of spiral solar symbols for good luck which they painted on their faces and engraved on the bridles of their horses. The swastika is one such migratory symbol that is found all the way from ancient Mesopotamia to the New World." (Victor Mair, JIM ibid.)

The mummies, or Caucasoid corpses, are at present deteriorating, now that they've been unearthed, in and around Ürümchi due to lack of official interest in preserving them as well as to the lack of modem facilities. A few are in the museum there but the rest have been put back in the ground for lack of space. If they were truly concerned about this incalculable loss to history they would send them to European or
American museums, if only temporarily, for proper care. A few European scholars are trying to analyze the corpses before they decay further. Professor Mair has promised the Chinese to help build a "mummy museum" in Ürümchi. "With the help of interested citizens and organizations around the world, I am confident that I will be able to fill this obligation to preserve properly and display adequately this common
heritage of humanity. – (op. cit.)

Our good friend and Liberty Bell subscriber, Ernest H. Hume, is a geophysicist and was hired by the Chinese government a few years ago to interpret a "data gained in explorations in the Tarim Basin. At one point his government assistant asked if he would like to visit the museum in Ürümchi. Glad for the break, Mr. Hume did so and was amazed when he encountered the Caucasoid corpses in their colorful woolen fabrics and leather boots. Even his Chinese assistant was vague about the corpses' backgrounds, such is
the state of Chinese government reluctance to share knowledge of the Aryans with its own people. Mr. Hume was appalled at the lack of care for these invaluable witnesses to our prehistory. They lay in the basement on marble benches, each covered with a blanket! Since then the Chinese have grudgingly moved several of the corpses upstairs and put them under glass but the rest of them are quietly rotting away. This is the clearest example of non-Aryan peoples having an interest in hiding our historical record. When our people are allowed to examine them, they take the greatest care in the interests of accuracy.

"Study of mtDNA [mitochondrial DNA] from ancient desiccated corpses found in the Tarim Basin in northwestern China by Paolo Francalacci of the University of Sássari Sardinia, exemplifies the rigorous procedures required to prevent contamination. When he collected samples, Francalacci wore disposable rubber gloves to avoid skin contact and a surgical mask to prevent possible contamination from saliva when speaking or breathing. Disposable sterile scalpels were used, and the gloves and scalpels were changed when sampling a new corpse to prevent cross contamination. The specimens, about one to two grams of muscle, skin, or bone, were placed in sterile plastic tubes that were sealed to avoid the growth of microöorganisms. The least exposed parts of the body, such as the inner thighs, or underarms, were selected for the sampling, with the aim of analyzing tissue that had been subjected to little or no handling during excavations and curation. In some cases it was possible to take bone and soft tissue samples from beneath the mummies' woolen clothing. Two to four samples were taken from each individual so that the accuracy of the analysis could be checked. In the laboratory, disposable tools and glassware were employed whenever possible to minimize the possibility of contamination from previous use. Before being used, all chemicals, glassware and instrumentation that could be contaminated were exposed to ultraviolet light to destroy extraneous DNA."

"Paolo Francalacci took samples from several of the bodies, dated to 3,200 years ago, from a graveyard near Hami and from other sites in the region. Preliminary results of the DNA analysis for these mummies suggest a possible European origin, although further research is needed to identify them more precisely. Analysis of DNA, however, could shed light only on genetic lineage. The long process of physical and cultural evolution of the ancient Xinjiang people is more complicated, and will be understood only by combining genetic, linguistic, historical, archaeological and anthropological evidence..." (Archaeology, Sept/Oct, '96)

The same article goes on to say, "Documentation of the early presence of Caucasian people in northwestern China, and information about their affinities with either modem European or Indo-Iranian populations, could contribute to the debate about the spread of Indo-European languages. Chinese and Uighur archaeologists have been excavating naturally mummified bodies there since the 1970s. The mummies' Caucasian features suggest a relationship with the Tokharians, an Indo-European people that lived in the area in historical times. Tokharians were the easternmost Indo-European speakers, but their language was more akin to Celtic and Germanic languages of western Europe than to geographically closer Balto-Slavic and Indo-Iranian languages. Tokharian also had some archaic features similar to Hittite."

About the Tokharians, Mair writes, "Although they do not speak, we know exactly what the Caucasoid corpses of the Tarim Basin look like because their bodies and the clothes they wear have been preserved for us. Fortunately, we also know what the Tokharians look like, because they were vividly portrayed in wall paintings at Kizil (also spelled Qizil) and Kumtura (also spelled Qumtura), Buddhist cave sites near Mucha. There we find aristocratic donors [of money and goods] with red or blond hair, parted neatly in the middle, long noses, blue or green eyes, set in narrow faces, and tall, slim bodies. Like European knights, they wear long broadswords inserted in scabbards hung from their waists. The swords are of the early Gothic type, with disk-like pommels and cross-shaped grip-guards. Yet they are not fully European knights, for they are wearing Sassanian dress and have on their foreheads the Indian religious mark known as a tilaka!" (Victor Mair, JIES op. cit.)

In April, 1996 there was held at the University of Pennsylvania an international conference, 'The Bronze Age and Iron Age People of Eastern Central Asia. Organized by Professor Mair of the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, the conference enabled scholars working in various reunions and time periods in the Eurasian steppes to bring about a cohesive exchange of research for the first time. It took Prof. Mair, whose father herded his cattle on the slopes of the Austrian Alps, two years to organize the conference.

"...Mair – who saw the original collection of mummified corpses in 1987, at the region's 'provincial museum – will never forget his own haunting first impression of them... "I was thunderstruck... I just stood there for a couple of hours. I almost thought it was some kind of hoax," he said. "All of their bodies were completely intact. They just looked so alive! And with features so stunningly non-Asian. They were clearly the remains of a Caucasoid people, with dark blond or yellowish brown hair, deep-set eyes and long limbs..." (Ellen O'Brien, Philadelphia Inquirer, April, 1996)

"Where did they come from, and why?" Those questions also possess Dolkun Kamberi, a Uygur archaeologist who grew up in the region and has recovered several of the preserved corpses. Kamberi grew up hearing folk stories about non-Chinese people who had settled the region in some unrecorded time, and about foreign archaeologists who had found grave sites in the province during the last century. As a native Uygur, he has medium brown hair and non-Asian features; he believes the Tarim Basin people's history is his history. Learning who the Tarim Basin's inhabitants might have been, he said, is "...very important for writing Asian history, and world history. In my opinion, without that region, there would be no Asian history!

"Some scholars believe the Tarim Basin people probably migrated through central Eurasia to the land that, centuries later, became known as the southern leg of the famous Silk Route linking East and West." (Ellen O'Brien, ibid.)

This scholarly investigation cannot help but lead to our liberation from the lords of the memory hole if we will just read the literature and spread the word.
