One of the greatest cover ups and frauds ever perpetrated is the true story of the Irish Starvation, or genocide. In hidden history, it’s more commonly referred to by the highly misleading “Irish Potato Famine.”

Basic research shows that the British sent an army into Ireland after a potato blight and aggressively removed enormous quantities of food stuffs from Ireland for use in England. Additionally, the potato blight was present in Europe at the time, which allowed “merchants” and speculators to profit from higher food prices there.

Accordingly, as food was removed, somewhere around 2 million (Fogarty- Chapter 6, The Murder Toll, of my Ireland 1845-1850: the Perfect Holocaust, and Who Kept it “Perfect,) Irish died and were buried in unconsecrated graves around the country. No one knows all the precise locations, as the cover-up artists ignored the mass burial sites scattered around Ireland. Some were dumped at sea. But the following map shows the mass graves of Ireland and the British occupational lock down. This was birddogged on-the-ground research and interviews with locals conducted by author Chris Fogarty.

The Irish Starvation represents two fundamental reasons for a strong nation rooted in blood and soil. Irish land had been looted and stolen from the Irish farmers by large British interests tied to international finance. In laissez faire capitalism, such as existed in the mid-19th century — and to a large extent globally today– food went to the highest bidder. Once tenant farmers were under the gun to feed their own families and kin, distressed sales of higher-value foods such as cattle occurred and fell into the hands of merchants.

Ireland’s diet since pre-history has been meat, dairy products, grains, fruit and vegetables; only later supplemented by potatoes. Central to its ancient legends are its livestock, reaping hooks, flails, querns and grain-kilns and -mills. The many Connacht grain-kilns and mills shown on the Irish Ordnance Survey Map of 1837-1841 operated continually prior to and during the Starvation, and subsequent to it until the 1940s. Therefore, the story of the potato blight as the cause of mass starvation is quite secondary and a misdirection.

According to the historian Cecil Woodham-Smith, foreign landlords regarded the land as simply a source of income, from which as much as possible was to be extracted. With the Irish “brooding over their discontent in sullen indignation” (in the words of the Earl of Clare), the countryside was largely viewed by landlords as a hostile place in which to live, and absentee ownership was common. Some landlords visited their property only once or twice in a lifetime, if ever. The rents from Ireland were generally remitted out of Ireland, resulting in a capital slash-and-burn stripping operation.

Indeed, it was England that was overdependent on potatoes, not Ireland. Ireland’s difficulty was that the Irish didn’t own their own land. They only produced off of it as tenants. As starvation threatened all of the British Isles, a Times of London editorial of Sept. 30, 1845, warned, “In England the two main meals of a working man’s day now consists of potatoes.”

England’s potato dependence was excessive and reckless. Grossly over-populated relative to its food supply, England faced famine unless it could import vast amounts of alternative food. But it didn’t grab merely Ireland’s surplus food, or enough Irish food to save England. It took more, for profit and to exterminate the people of Ireland.

Some of following excerpts come from “Ireland 1845-1850: The Perfect Holocaust, and Who Kept it ‘Perfect'” by Chris Fogarty. This suppressed book is very difficult to locate, but is available in Dublin from and in the States from

There is a good Red Ice interview with the author. Joe Atwill and Tim Kelly separately explored the role of Freemasonry in this crime and other skulduggery.

Queen Victoria’s economist Nassau Senior gloated that existing policies “will not kill more than one million Irish in 1848, and that will scarcely be enough to do much good.”

When an eyewitness urged a stop to the genocide-in-progress, Treasury Chief Charles Trevelyan replied, “We must not complain of what we really want to obtain.”  Trevelyan insisted that all reports of starvation were exaggerated, until 1847. By then, several million were dead. He then declared it ended and refused entry to the American food relief ship Sorciére.

While Trevelyan was lying through his pie hole, the Waterford Harbor British Army commissariat officer wrote to him on April 24, 1846: “The barges leave Clonmel once a week for this place, with the export supplies under convoy which, last Tuesday, consisted of two guns, 50 cavalry and 80 infantry escorting them on the banks of the Suir as far as Carrick.” While its people starved, the Clonmel district exported annually, along with its other farm produce, approximately 60,000 pigs in the form of cured pork.

Thomas Carlyle, an influential British essayist and supposed “enlightened” man, wrote, “Ireland is like a half-starved rat that crosses the path of an elephant. What must the elephant do? Squelch it — by heavens — squelch it.” And a Times headline on Sept. 2, 1846, and again in 1848, read “Total annihilation.”

Ireland starved because its food, from 40 to 70 shiploads per day, was removed at gunpoint by 12,000 British constables reinforced by the British militia, battleships, excise vessels, Coast Guard and by 200,000 British soldiers (100,000 at any given moment). Ultimately, Britain seized from Ireland’s producers tens of millions of livestock; tens of millions of tons of flour, grains, meat, poultry and dairy products; enough to sustain 18 million persons. This was similar to the operation these goons conducted in Bangladesh in 1943. Personally, this is hard to write, as I have over half English (Cavaliers) and Scots Ulster blood, although they got out of this predatory-parasite hellhole earlier.

Par for the course, the Public Records Office British regiments’ “Daily Activity Reports” of 1845 to 1850 have “gone missing.” Those records include each regiment’s cattle drives and grain-cart convoys it escorted at gunpoint from the Irish districts assigned to it. Also “missing” are the receipts issued by the British army commissariat officers in every Irish port tallying the cattle and tonnage of foodstuff removed, and likewise the export lading manifests.

The toll from conventional “historians” has been put at one million genocided during this period, but in reality it is much more. After being evicted and without shelter or food, the Irish tended to weaken and end up in poorhouses, where they died in droves. They were then disposed of in mass graves. This kept the dirty work somewhat out of public view. People just disappeared. The performance of the Catholic Church was spotty. In fact, few clergy died. Other starving Irish ended up in squalor and without assistance in hostile Liverpool. A contingent of perhaps a million with better resources managed to escape to America and elsewhere.

John Mitchel, an Irish Nationalist and Patriot, Stands Tall as a Man of Honor During the Irish Starvation

John Mitchel (1815-1875) was a Irish Protestant and nationalist. He was derided as Papist Mitchel for his championing of all Irish through his newspaper The United Irishman. He was also dismissed by TPTB as an exaggerating firebrand and traitor during this period.

Mitchel was a fierce critic of international finance capitalism, which he blamed for The Great Hunger. His Jail Journal is one of Irish nationalism’s most famous texts. He wrote in 1846, as the death toll mounted:

“They behold their own wretched food melting in rottenness off the face of the earth, and they see heavy-laden ships, freighted with the yellow corn their own hands have sown and reaped, spreading all sail for England; they see it and with every grain of that corn goes a heavy curse.”

He openly criticized the so-called famine policy of the government and could see nothing in it but a machination, deliberately devised and skillfully worked, for the entire subjugation of the island — the slaughter of one portion of the people and the pauperization of the rest. This is standard New World Order-Shock Doctrine methodology still going on today.

He came to the conclusion that “the whole system ought to be met with resistance at every point, and the means for this would be extremely simple; namely, a combination among the people to obstruct and render impossible the transport and shipment of Irish provisions; to refuse all aid to its removal; to destroy the highways; to prevent everyone, by intimidation, from daring to bid for grain and cattle if brought to auction under ‘distress.'” Unfortunately, the Irish people were too weak and hungry to resist and the Church sat on its hands.

Using his newspaper as his pulpit, Mitchel called for resistance against British rule in Ireland through non-payment of rents and by preventing the export of food from the country. He became the most vocal in highlighting how the British, in his opinion, deliberately exasperated and mismanaged the starvation to reduce (aka genocide) the population (which the British Government considered to have a surplus).

Mitchel’s Excellent Nationalist Manifesto for Every Nation

Mitchel opposed alien ownership of Irish lands and declared that the Irish people had a distinct and indefeasible right to their country and to all the moral and material wealth and resources thereof, to possess, to govern the same, for their own use, maintenance, comfort and honor, as a distinct sovereign state; that it was within their power and their manifest duty to make good and exercise that right; that the life of one peasant was as precious as the life of one nobleman or gentleman; that the property of the farmers and laborers of Ireland was as sacred as the property of all the noblemen and gentlemen in Ireland, and also immeasurably more valuable.

For publishing his views about the British Empire’s crimes against his people, Mitchel was arrested in 1848 and his paper shuttered. He was then hauled before a star chamber and sentenced for sedition to 18 years of hard labor in Devil’s Island, Tasmania. In 1853, he managed to escape and went to America, where he supported the Confederacy. He returned home to Ireland for a few years before his death in 1875.

The following video is a great tribute song to Mitchel. It has shockingly few views, but I must say that it brought a tear to my eye.

Postscript about the famine in Scotland:

A distinction to add this discussion of the exploitative alien landlord system of Ireland was the comparison to Scotland which had the same system. But in Scotland’s case the rich landlord’s (lords) were not foreign but were related by blood and soil to their tenents. This bound them to treat their kin honorably and offer relief out of their personal wealth when famine threatened.

The Wikipedia page on Highland clearance is well researched and has this important note:

Essentially the Scottish Highland landlords were bankrupted and had no hope of maintaining the system. But still it notes their sense of clan and blood obligation:

“Ireland’s misfortune created a philanthropic awareness that meant that the relief effort could be quickly mobilised for the Highlands before large numbers of people had died. The richer landlords were able to fund their own famine relief for their tenants. Others, though, were bankrupted by buying the necessary food.”

28 Comments on Britain’s Genocidal Starvation of the Irish — or So-Called ‘Potato Famine’ — and Brave Resistance of Nationalist John Mitchel

  1. This complements Russ Winter’s earlier piece, linked in the sidebar, on the British – Churchill starvation of millions in India.

    It’s notable that to this day, Ireland’s population still has not recovered, the two Irelands having around 5.5 million people now, whilst estimated at 8 million plus 200 years ago.

    Without denying British malice & cruelty to the Irish, it seems that Ireland also represents another kind of recurring human tragedy, population over-reach after destroying an earlier, more sustainable mixed environment that was heavily forested, but the trees of ancient Ireland are largely gone now. After the 1800s famines described above, the forbidden-to-use-contraception Catholic Irish began to control births by a practice of very late marriage.

    Tragic too that more than a century after the 1916 Easter rebellion against the British, Ireland is still not united … which may happen soon thanks to Brexit. Northern Ireland also poses an Israel-related scenario regarding the ethics of self-determination… the Protestant, pro-UK ‘Northern Irish’ are descendants of colonial settlers planted there under typical British ‘divide & rule’ imperial policies.

    We have similar things going on today, in how Morocco is planting huge numbers of Moroccans in the former Spanish colony of Western Sahara, in order to sway a future ‘vote’ on self-determination there, the Moroccans overwhelming the tribal natives in numbers.

    Arguably, there is a deeper level of ‘self-determination’, beyond merely counting heads that merely show the ‘facts on the ground’ at the moment (Israeli settlers or whatever). Non-ZIonist rebel Jew & chess master Bobby Fischer, famously said that not only should the Israelis give their land back to the Palestinians, but that North Americans needed to consider giving their continent back to the ‘red man’.

  2. Outstanding article, Russ. This is what great writing looks like. If journalistic prizes were awarded for merit, you would win them all.

  3. The British and especially The Crown are a disgusting inbred lot. In 1930 or so the United States of America almost went to war with them. The Red War or close to it was it’s name–never taught. I wish we had and treated them the way they treated The Irish and Palestine’s today. Genocide in plain site. A disgrace. Crimes Against Humanity.

    • Oh, and they need to get the hell out of Ireland—–ALL OF IT or we should remove them by force. I’ve been close to Belfast and Northern “Ireland” but wouldn’t go into it. They disgust me. Rude, arrogant and piggish. They are not “Irish” by a long shot. GET OUT!

      • Correct–they are in fact Scots-Irish. When Catholic Mary Queen of Scots took over(supposedly) is when the Protestant Scots-Irish moved to Ulster. And the royalty and aristocrats in England exploited both Irish and Scots-Irish.

  4. eXCELLENT ARTICLE, VERY WELL WRITTEN! These days we still haven’t recovered our numbers! Thousands of young, educated Irish men and women have emigrated again since 2008 whilst our neo-Marxist governments insist on continuing to import cheap labour from not just Eastern Europe but way beyond the EU and we are told we are “lazy” , “don’t want to work” and “racist”! The latest move to genocide the Gael out of Eirrean is the aggressive push to repeal or 8th Amendment, which protects the lives of both mothers and unborn children equally.Our sodomite,non-Christian, unelected pretender of a Taoiseach and his equally sodomite,pagan and ANTI-Christian so-called Minster for Children want to legalise abortion for any reason up to 12 weeks and then up to birth for so-called fatal foetal abnormality,making the legislation more murderous and eugenic even than Britain’s! Please pray for us that we save our 8th Amendment and let me assure you, the pro-life side is going all out to win this battle and we are winning more and more people to the fight for life, so we’re not completely defeated YET! Erin g bragh!!!

  5. Yes, great and very enlightening article. Somehow it still amazes me that the only so called “history” we have shoved down our throats on a daily basis is that of evil Nazis and the really unproven holocaust. I can turn on my TV right now and can find a program on either subject. Any other history of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man is nowhere to be found.

    • When you’re tired enough of the lies on tv, do an experiment- invert their stories. I reckon doing so will get you closer to the truth. Here’s two questions- how much better do you think this world would be if the USA just stayed out of WW2? What about if they’d have come in on the axis’s side? The truth is that either scenario would likely have ended the city of London’s control of international finance, and by extension made the world a better place for everyone in it. There was no industrial murder factories anywhere operated by Germany. Just work camps, whose prisoners became more emaciated and typhus ridden due to the illegal war crime bombings of supply lines by the allies. Hitler is hated by international finance, and their owned msm, because he started an interest free currency and demonstrated the advantages of debt free currency better than anyone else in modern history. Lincoln, jfk, khaddaffi etc hardly got their debt free currencies off the ground before biting the dust. Germany started issuing debt free currency during a huge depression, in 2 years they were the best performing economy in the world, in 5 they were literally a world superpower. If the bankers didn’t foment war on Germany quickly, their “money out of thin air backed by debt” ponzi scheme would have folded in less than 20 years, and the world would be a much better place.

  6. The Irish genocide by “famine” took place two centuries after the first Irish genocide perpetrated by the Jew boot-licker and sniveling slavish sycophant Oliver Cromwell, who murdered Charles I with the help of Jewish finance and allowed those parasites back into England.

    Cromwell carried out a murderous rampage against the Irish and all things Catholic, reflecting his masters’ visceral hatred of the true religion that for 1000 years had preached the truth about the Jew, and prevented them from ever getting their filthy claws too deep into Christian Europe.

    Barely 40 years after the murder of Charles I for “treason”, the Jews who had now thoroughly infested British politics, plotted to dethrone James II because he was Catholic and too close to Catholic France.

    Well, as we know, they succeeded in the “Glorious Revolution” of 1688 and a century later they smashed Catholic France in the French Revolution. England was the beachhead the Jews used from which to destroy Catholic France. This is little written about, but the French Revolution could not have happened without the Jewish foothold in England a century earlier.

    The Whigs, we are told, feared Catholic succession. Instead we got Jewish succession and a Jewish Europe.

    Parasites do not love their host. They fattened Europe up for the slaughter of the World Wars – more than 100 million Christians senselessly butchered over lies. It was a culling operation.

    Notice how they glorify their successes – The removal of a Catholic monarch was the “Glorious” Revolution. The slaughter of 35 million European Christians in WWI made it the “Great” War, not least because it led immediately to WWII and the massacre of 60-70 million more.

    Now, through their control of the EU, they are sending in waves of African and Middle Eastern “refugees” into the heart of Europe to destroy what’s left of its Christian identity.

    And through it all they project their perversions and sins onto their victims.

    Their “holy” book, the Talmud, is graphically elitist and racist like no other. Non-Jews (goyim) are cattle and sub-human and can be murdered at will. This is practised in Israel against the Palestinians and in the Middle East in general which has become a goy slaughterhouse. Israel is officially the “Jewish” state of Israel. But the same racist sins of the Nazis who comprised not more than 7% of the German population have been imputed against all Germans and all white people by association.

    The Talmud permits sex with very young children. Pedophilia, pederasty and child murder is rife in the (Jew and Zionist infested) upper echelons of British and American society, involving judges, politicians and corporate elites. But the public face of pedophilia is (you guessed it) the Catholic Church, which they infiltrated with homosexual communists in the 1950s.

    The World has got to wake up or it will be consumed. Christians tried for more than a millennium to accommodate the Jews in various ways. But with the Jews, it is a zero-sum game.

    • Thank you for this comment! As for the genocide part, it isn’t just Palestinians or using the Nazis as an excuse to promote hatred of whites. Study up on Noahide–Talmudic Jewry want to decapitate all Christians, not just Palestinian ones. And will Christian Zionists go along with this?

  7. It was King Edward I who expelled the Jews from England in 1290 for child sacrifice and usury among other degenerate behavior.
    It was the degenerate traitor Oliver Cromwell who allowed them back. After which, the genocide of the Irish began.
    The Jews would ultimately enslave thousands of Irish and transport them to Barbados as slaves on plantations. These slave traders were the most degenerate of human waste.
    Eventually forcing Irish women to breed with African men to create the first “Mulottos”.
    Their justification for this disgusting practice was that African men weren’t intelligent enough to operate the granaries, but the Irish men couldn’t or wouldn’t work as hard as the African men.
    In the 1602 the Jews founded the Dutch East India Company which would operate the transatlantic slave trade until 1799. Subsequently the Jews would consolidate the slave trade in America in Newport, RI and Charleston, SC.

    • Yep! “They Were White and They Were Slaves” by William Hoffman verifies this…and not just to Barbados–where, since the Irish slaves weren’t used to the heat, these folks were worked to death. So that’s why they started enslaving Africans (with the help of fellow Africans, many being Muslim), then sent the “indentured servants” to what would become the US. Being both Irish and Scots-Irish, I am almost certain some of my ancestors were indentured servants. Blacks want
      “reparations” for slavery? They’re not getting a penny from me!

  8. Excellent article, Russ! Thanks for all you do to get the truth out on so many issues.

    8-10 million Iranians died over Great Famine caused by the British in late 1910s, documents reveal
    “One of the little-known chapters of history was the widespread famine in Iran during World War I, caused by the British presence in Iran. After the Russian Revolution of 1917, Britain became the main foreign power in Iran and this famine or–more accurately–‘genocide’ was committed by the British. The document in the American Archives, reporting the widespread famine and spread of epidemic disease in Iran, estimates the number of the deceased due to the famine to be about 8-10 million during 1917-19 (1), making this the greatest genocide of the 20th century and Iran the biggest victim of World War I (2).”

  9. What a tragedy for the Irish and they are still divided today for what? On color of shit ! Will the Irish ever unite and let the Brishit pay?
    The most heroic act of Brishit was invention of concentration camps in South Africa. In december 1899 the Brishit round up more than 25 thousand women and children and lock them in concentration camp. The reason was that farmers call Boers, fathers of the children engage in gorilla war against the Brishit occupiers who want to still their newly discovered gold and diamond. When the Boers refuse to surrender the Brishit army starve to death all the 25 thousand kids and their mothers. Brishit empire was just for few jewish banking rats who run the bank of England and Brishit army was working for them as assassins and looters around the world. Even today in South Africa if you find diamond or gold on your land, it’s illegal to keep for your self because belong the the jewish London rat Rothshit.

  10. This farmer is indicating that they are now importing beef from Namibia! When farmers like this are screaming from the roof tops, we better get worried!

    • Thanks for the video. Is America getting ready to experience the same as the Irish did over a hundred years ago? I say you better believe it. With everyone strapping on a ridiculous mask and hiding in in their homes like cowards, it’s going to happen. Tyrants love sheeple, ready to be led to slaughter by the latest Judas Goat’s.

  11. “For publishing his views about the British Empire’s crimes against his people, Mitchel was arrested in 1848 and his paper shuttered. He was then hauled before a star chamber and sentenced for sedition to 18 years of hard labor in Devil’s Island, Tasmania. In 1853, he managed to escape and went to America, where he supported the Confederacy.“
    Sounds like he got the Ezra Pound treatment, although at least he escaped… If you think he supported the confederacy because he was racist, please change out of your pajamas. Although I admire his will to rail against the money power by backing the confederacy, which had legally bulletproof reasons for secession, I have come to understand that the confederacy was financed (or more accurately stated- purposely underfunded) by the octopus tentacle of the crime syndicate that had been operating in France since before the battle of Waterloo. Textbook crime syndicate behavior- they did the same thing to both sides in WW2, and other wars- fund both sides, but fund the desired losers less, and viola, the winners and losers are predetermined.

  12. Being Irish as well as Scots-Irish (that is, likely some of my ancestors were Indentured Servants) as well as German, I appreciate this truth. And yes, the English (the Royals, the aristocrats, the wealthy–not the English working classes though) ought to pay Ireland reparations. Especially the Royals and the elites, even if none today were around then!

  13. I highly recommend this latest video from Ice Age Farmer (this needs to be shared everywhere!!) While they have everyone cowering at home of the fake virus, they are doing a total take over and restructuring of the economy. And this info fits with what Lynnette Zang warned about–they are going to blockchain digitize everything and have total control of everything, including the food supply.

    Here’s the latest from Ice Age Farmer–not good

    AI Takeover of Food Launched – Trumps’ Meat XO

    Says they are taking over the food supply and that it will somehow get connected to the chinese style surveillance grid Trump is setting up with Peter Theil –like no food for you, social credit score too low, you didn’t social distance. Public roll out of total information control, blockchain food supply chain….rolling out the digital grid, and nobody is even noticing…. NWO is here.

    All of this fits with what Lynnette Zang warned about–digitizing every asset on earth (including food supply)

    Lynette Zang: Bankers’ New SDR Crypto Blockchain Will Enslave Humanity (video)

    The new Chinese-created ACChain crypto currency blockchain will be the SDR-related world currency that will allow the international banking elite to digitize every tangible asset on earth, and they will then exert total control over all of it.

    Lynette Zang explains: “The goal is to capture your wealth, and when the say this is the LAST wealth transfer mechanism they mean it because they want it all. All of it.”

    Intel Software designer Brad peters takes it one step further, saying: “If a global crypto coin controlled by the Bank For International Settlements (BIS) comes to internationalize PROPERTY onto their crypto blockchain, they get their one world government and one world currency all in the same stroke. This IS your 1988 (2018 prediction) Economist magazine cover.” (

  14. The 1845-1850 Holocaust was reported as such starting on 4May1846 in The Cork (now Irish) Examiner newspaper, also at that time by John Mitchel, Michael Davitt, James Fitzgerald, et al. Its perpetration took more then half (67 regiments) of Britain’s 130-regiment army. Their food removal mission, from start to finish, was led by commander-in-chief General Sir Edward Blakeney. In 1849, as General Blakeney’s army successfully neared mission completion, a complicit Queen Victoria conferred on Blakeney an Order of the Bath.

    To learn which British regiment starved your relatives read my book; “Ireland 1845-1850: the Perfect Holocaust, and Who Kept it ‘Perfect’.” its 400 pages corrects and refines the rough figures in my old web site quoted in the above article. Its 3rd Ireland, 2nd US, and 1st Australia editions are nearly gone. It is available in the States via Amazon.
