In late August 1998 I found myself sitting in a private meeting room at the Cosmos Club in Washington, D.C., flanked by two journalists. Pensively standing next to his chair on the other side of the table was former GRU Col. Stanislav Lunev, who had defected from the Russian Federation in March 1992. As we listened, spellbound by his brilliance, we learned of Russia’s descent into corruption. But then he surprised us, quite unexpectedly, by saying that Russia’s degradation had occurred as blowback after a decades-long KGB campaign to spread moral corruption in America.
Really? Why would Soviet Russia want to spread corruption in America? What purpose could it serve? “Because,” he explained, “Americans were too honest. We could not effectively recruit your people as spies. We needed to soften you up.”
He said that Soviet agents had given money to people in Hollywood with the idea of putting more sex and violence in movies. It was an attempt to coarsen the moral sensibilities of average Americans. Lunev said this policy had backfired. “We had gotten rid of religion in Russia so we had no protection. Our people lost all sense of right and wrong. Your country still believed in God, so the damage was not as great.”
I then turned and asked, “What kind of people did you recruit as spies.” He had a one-word reply that was unforgettable: “Journalists.”
This perked the interest of the two journalists flanking me. “What is a journalist?” Lunev asked rhetorically. “A person who gathers information and makes reports.”
Many people today think the United States is a leader in disinformation and propaganda. But this idea can be readily dismissed by the fact that the United States has long been infiltrated by, and influenced, to accept anti-American messages and themes as a matter of course. Our centers of learning are anti-American hotbeds. In fact, anti-Americanism is so pervasive it is no longer recognized as such — so that being against one’s own country has been “normalized.”
Since the government does not control the media in the U.S., the larger cultural narrative has long been up for grabs. If the country had not been infiltrated and partly taken over from within, the rhetoric of many politicians and newspapers today could by no means be explained.
Our reality, to a large degree, is a construction, painstakingly built, brick by brick, with elements conceived abroad. Americans have been persuaded, by countless artifices of rhetoric, by the Fool’s Paradise of the shopping mall regime, that vigilance against the communist threat was paranoia, that Russia and China were not ruled by communists, that they were not using our openness and naïveté against us.
Then came the 9/11 attack. All of a sudden our military and intelligence resources were diverted from their Cold War-era targets to a new enemy. Islamic terrorists, hiding in caves, were the new threat. Russia was going to be our ally against this threat. We went to war with Baghdad and Kabul. We spent trillions. We wasted all our attention, all those years, all those resources, fighting people we had no real need to fight. The real threat was dismissed out of hand. The Chinese and Russians were now our partners. We forgot to maintain our nuclear weapons industry. The country’s vigilance slipped to a new low. Marxists flooded into government under Obama.
In November 1998 I asked Col. Lunev how a successful nuclear attack against America could be carried out. He said, “If you ever hear that Arab terrorists have attacked an American city with nuclear weapons? Don’t believe it.”
“Why wouldn’t I?”
“Because,” he said, “it will be my people. It will be [Russian] Spetsnaz.”
“What will happen after this [false flag] nuclear strike?” I asked.
“Some weeks or months later the missiles will come from Russia,” he said.
I never did ask Lunev what was meant by an interval of “weeks or months” between a false flag attack and nuclear strikes from Russia. I went back and reread a number of Soviet military books, searching for clues.
Reviewing the literature I made the following list: (1) Marshal Sokolovskiy’s book, Soviet Military Strategy, says that Russia must openly orient her people to make war on America before an attack is feasible; (2) this orientation would have to take place “in plain view,” but in a way that Americans would not take alarm; (3) the first crippling waves of any attack on the United States, using weapons of mass destruction, could not be direct attacks; (4) Russia and China would need a foolproof alibi (as suggested by Lunev’s 1998 scenario involving a false-flag terrorist attack); (5) the mystery of Lunev’s “weeks or months” interval has to do with the objective of collapsing the U.S. economy before the advent of war; (6) subsequent domestic unrest, with attending political divisions, would be more effectively inflamed; (7) financial collapse would negate early warning systems as well as command & control.
The seven points listed above might be called “The Sequence.” That is to say, in strategic terms, a cascading series of catastrophic events leading to the negation of the West’s defenses.
If we consider our current situation in light of “The Sequence,” we find many points coming into alignment. With regard to the COVID-19 outbreak, there may have occurred (in this regard) an “evolution of intentions.” Since the enemy intends to destroy the United States by means of “The Sequence,” the accidental release of the COVID-19 pathogen in China provides the occasion for a spontaneous if unintended denouement. In other words, why not roll with it?
COVID-19 offers the perfect alibi for China. It also gives cover for war mobilization disguised as measures for fighting the virus. It is obvious that a COVID-19 outbreak will hit United States in the coming days. The resulting panic will cause an unprecedented financial contraction. American society, softened by decades of loose living, is ideologically divided. Worse yet, a significant percentage of the country believes the president is a Russian stooge.
Are the pre-conditions for unleashing “The Sequence” in place? Are China’s intentions in relation to the COVID-19 virus “evolving”?

The situation resembles a bunch of starved lions desperately trying to tear down an (already diseased) elephant. They act in perfect coordination, getting their deadly claws and teeth into the giant’s flesh, until the elephant, ever-more weakened by the wounds inflicted, will succumb – to be devoured by the lions (and then, the vultures) to the last bit of its carcass and with nothing but a skeleton left lying in the wilderness.
NATO boss was a leninist in his youth and sang anti-NATO songs. He had regular contacts with a Russian diplomat who later turned out to work for the KGB. His sister was a member in socialist organisations.
This is where we arrive, at last.
Henry Kissinger, Moscow’s man in Washington:
Infiltration of government is a real thing the communists do. In context, against America, it is all about a war. And we are all in grave danger. Especially now. But nobody knows. Few know enough to be afraid. Go to sleep, now. Pleasant dreams. The deception has worked on you.
Where is my comment on Trump ?
I do not know who you are or why you posted a three-year old smear against the U.S. President, implying he was taking direction from a Russian bank. The source you cited was antisemitic and full of the usual Jew-hating smears.
You are not a fighter for truth. You hide facts and censor comments.
You were free to prove me false or discuss the subject. But you delete. Your “truth” needs to be protected like the Holocaust-lie needs protection or like the Jews who constantly have to beat everybody with the anti-semitism-mace to keep their rebelling victims in check.
Your idea of truth is not mine. Yes, I censor comments from antisemites because this is my site. I pay for it. It is not for spreading antisemitism. Get your own site. Spew your hate somewhere else. Already, for the crime of disagreeing with your kind, I am slandered as a “Jew Communist controlled opposition traitor.” You think I feel kindly toward you? Your kind are hypocrites when it comes to freedom of speech. And you are hypocrites in terms of scholarly debate. The regimes you approve of don’t allow freedom; but oh how loudly you wail at being shut out. Yet I am more generous than you! I think you should be free to express yourself on your own platform. Not here. Your ideology endangers the nationalist cause in every country. In my opinion you aren’t even real nationalists. You merely hate Jews. This is your hobbyhorse. Jews, Jews, Jews. It’s a paranoid obsession. You believe in persecuting and harassing those who disagree with you. I posted Himmler’s recorded speech which talked of massacring the Jews, and all your confederates dishonestly turned away and said nothing. They were all cowards before real evidence. Not one person dared honestly deal with Himmler’s words. You call me a liar? By covering up mass murder, you are acting as an accessories after the fact. Ever think of that? Unless you can explain Himmler’s speech admitting the Holocaust, you need to put a cork in your your pie hole. In the last analysis, you will receive from the rest of us what you have already given; that is, malignity for malignity. I do not care what “crimes” the Jews or Gypsies or other tribes perpetrated against “gentile victims” in centuries past. This victimology is pathetic. You go ahead and obsess in the corner about Israel. It’s the size of New Jersey.
You are evidently left over from the Third Reich. Shouldn’t you be in Argentina or Paraguay, wearing lederhosen and sipping Bavarian Bitters?
Maybe China first released an attenuated virus on its own people, limiting it to Wuhan, for testing and observation. Hence the videos of people, apparently not seriously ill, deliberately spreading the virus there. China might be exaggerating the death toll, and spreading rumors of a higher death toll, to reduce our suspicions.
Meanwhile maybe they release the strong version of the virus against China’s enemies. This way China pretends it is an accident, and can get a freebie, a blow against us without retaliation.
The deceptive element in Chinese reports craves wary watching. What we don’t know can catch us off guard, and kill us.
A freind here in the US is a Russian Jew who came in the Yeltsin Era. He travels back with his American born son every few years. We met recently and he said his latest trip had shocked him- the sheer hatred of all things American- he was saddened.
The Russian media have been painting America in the blackest colors.
True. Putin transformed a positive country in one of hate and lies.
Psychological war preparations.
This man is a snake and a pathological lier.
On the other hand this hate is partly justified. Crimea is not a Western business. Why does the West meddle Russian affairs. The sanctions choke their economy. There is poverty. Wouldn’t you be angry, too, at their place ?
I remember all the bad press Russia got since Putin’s election in 2000. I remember how the whole world laughed at them because of problems during the preparations for the Sochi Olympics. This really hurt the ordinary Russians because they really wanted to welcome the world as friends and show them the beautiful side if this country which got a bad reputation because of pathological communist mass murders.
And then think of all the wars, killings and destruction the US caused around the world since WWI. Of course there is hate and it’s justified.
Both sides are manipulated in this satanic game. Unite. All the people have to unite and destroy those who harm, subvert, divide.
I do agree with some of your sentiments. It is important that Western people show kindness to the Russian people. It is important to show good faith and act with honor. Only in this way can we redeem Russia from the communist criminals.
My gut instincts are very much in line with your essay .
JRN said “Our centers of learning are anti-American hotbeds. In fact, anti-Americanism is so pervasive it is no longer recognized as such — so that being against one’s own country has been “normalized.”
Agreed, and to continue on the pathogen metaphor, our schools and colleges have become like the body’s immune system that has turned on itself. In parlance of viruology, when someone gets a reinfection of a pathogen, sometimes the immune system turns itself up so high that it can kill the patient. We are living in dangerous times!
It is a perfect analogy
Not exactly. Moles like Kissinger are limited by the spirit of the people around them. They cannot control everyone or everything. We almost won the Vietnam War when Kissinger was in office. Read General Palmer’s book. He was onto Kissinger. We won many battles because of our patriotism, our military efficiency, and our technology. But now the situation is worse. We have traitors throughout the government. Russia and China are rubbing their hands, calculating the last moves necessary to destroy us. But look at how their biological warfare strategy has backfired in China. Look at how unpopular Putin has become in Russia. Look at the miracle of Trump’s election! Also note, the communist bloc is a rotten house where all the leaders are corrupt, many are incompetent, and bungling is rife. Psychopaths often fail because of their emotional and intellectual deficits. We are given a reprieve. If only we can wake up.
Christians can be members of any race. The problem with Balkanization occurs when the left divides us politically by race and pushes a massive influx of foreigners who are not assimilated and identify as anti-capitalist and anti-white. The communists use this to build a coalition of voters to elect people who are working secretly with Beijing and Moscow. These undermine our unity, our economy and our military.
Not sure if you can comment, I was talking with some people in New Zealand and other countries in regards to the 10,000 missing protesters from Hong Kong. I was met with denials when I mentioned that an relative of mine who works in the IT Industry in Hong Kong has told me from the start of the violent protests around August or September of 2019 to at least January or February this year, the Chinese Communist Party’s People’s Liberation Army and Ministry of State Security has been hacking the Hong Kong telecommunications network to track protesters and my relative told me it was around September that the Hong Kong Protesters when they were on Twitter warning each other that they should be careful with their mobile phones as the protesters believe that the People’s Liberation Army and Ministry of State Security were tracking their mobile phones.
When I told this to some people in New Zealand and other countries, I was literally told that the Chinese Communist Party’s People Liberation Army and Ministry of State Security is not capable of doing such things and the reaction I got was denial.
Denial is very common when confronting the actions of totalitarian states.
Just wanting your opinion, in regards to the Chinese Communist Party’s Ministry of State Security and People’s Liberation Army hacking the Hong Kong Telecommunications Network to track the mobile phones of the Hong Kong Protesters which eventually leads to disappearance of the protesters or precursor to disappearance, this theory is also being proposed by some people who run the Hong Kong Missing Protesters Facebook pages as well, Jeff may I have your opinion regarding this?
In a mainstream media article online, I saw an important fact about Covid-19. The death rate of those infected in South Korea is said to be 0.5% and it is said that this figure is typical of the flu. In other words, the disease isn’t any worse than the flu there. But the death rate of those infected in northern Italy is said to be 4%. That’s eight times as high as with the flu. Yet both South Korea and northern Italy have first rate medical care. So why the difference? The mainstream says that’s a mystery.
The difference could be that S. Korea got its Covid-19 from Chinese visitors and that the Chinese have given their own people an attenuated strain. This would be to conceal an act of biowarfare aggression and to allow practical study of the spread of the virus. Meanwhile the West gets the full strength militarized strain, with an order of magnitude higher death rate.
Part of the “gray terror”, trying to get as many blows in as possible, before the West realizes it is at war. Also, I noticed that many “common colds” are said to be caused by coronaviruses – indeed they are weaponizing the common cold.
