The goal for this Web site is to become a central location for information about Willis Allison Carto and Elisabeth Oldemeier Carto, embezzlers and patriots for profit. The motivation for exposing the Cartos and their activities to the light they shun is not born from their ruination and despoilation of the American right wing and populist political scene, although there is little argument that they have done just that. Rather, proceeding from the belief that the People always get the government they deserve, the populists and right wingers who have allied themselves with Carto over the years have gotten what they deserve.
But the Cartos for many years have been despoiling another area of interest, that of true historical revisionism in the United States. Much of their energy since 1993 has been to “rule or ruin” revisionism, primarily by destroying the Institute for Historical Review. Ironically, Willis Carto was a co-founder of the IHR, which grew to be not only the premier revisionist publisher of its kind in the world, but also into the instrument of Carto’s eventual destruction.
In 1993, the Cartos, who neither understood revisionism nor appreciated it on any level, apparently calculated that they had gotten as much money from revisionism as was possible to get, and embarked on a quest to sabotage the strong, vibrant, and ever-growing worldwide revisionist movement by eviscerating the Institute for Historical Review.
But the Cartos failed to realize that the people committed to revisionism, people such as Mark Weber, Robert Faurisson, and Arthur Butz, would not stand idly by while Carto threw away their lives’ work. In 1993, after Willis Carto had promised an end to the scholarly revisionism embodied by the IHR, a small band of loyal revisionists began the arduous process of separating the parasitic Cartos from their revisionist host. Only then did they discover the damage Carto had done already to revisionism.
The Cartos’ campaign to “rule or ruin” the IHR and the revisionist movement continues to this day. At virtually every step, the Cartos have underestimated the abilities and tenacity of revisionists, who despite being outnumbered and undercapitalized, have won every important engagement to date. Whether you love revisionism, hate revisionism, or couldn’t care less about it, you are sure to be fascinated by the study of the couple who have done more than any other persons, living or dead, to stamp it out: embezzlers Willis and Elisabeth Carto.
It has been said that those who are innocent want all the facts to become available, knowing that once the facts are known, they will be exonerated. Conversely, those who are guilty do everything in their power to hide the facts (note, for examples, the behaviors of Bill Clinton and O. J. Simpson). This site is dedicated to putting as much information into the public domain as possible about Willis Carto’s attacks on the LSF/IHR. If you want to compare this information against that being put out by the Carto side, see his web sites:
