At that point the shift in the political and military balance would be plain for all to see. Convergence would … be on terms dictated by the communist bloc. The argument for accommodation with the overwhelming strength of communism would be virtually unanswerable. Pressures would build up for changes in the American political and economic system…. Traditional conservatives would be isolated and driven toward extremism. They might become the victims of a new McCarthyism of the left.Anatoliy Golitsyn, New Lies for Old, p. 346
America is on the road to socialism. Friedrich Hayek called it The Road to Serfdom. Presently it is a road lined with soldiers, in a capital fortified and afraid. One might ask how a socialist dictatorship begins? Always, it begins with fear. First there is fear on the side of the government. Then the government begins to make the people afraid. It is all part of a “process.”
Will this “process” go quickly or slowly? It all depends on the pace of change set by the new administration. The country is psychologically vulnerable. People do not know what they are doing. They have lived in relative comfort and safety all their lives, and they have long employed a loose and sometimes confused language in their political discussions; so they are mentally ill-equipped to grasp the complex process that is now unfolding. One might say that Americans, as a people, have lost their intellectual focus. We have forgotten that the apparent does not exhaust the real. In other words, there is more going on than meets the eye. And now is when we need imagination married to intellect; but all we see is intellect divorced from imagination, with imagination huddling in a paranoid corner.
The question of where we are headed, and at what speed, might well be found in the Program of the Communist Party USA. This program was adopted in 2005 and updated in 2019. I will be quoting mostly from the 2005 version. But to start out, I will quote from the party’s April 2020 Preface – which begins exactly as Biden began his presidency: “All of humanity is faced with multiple, interlocking crises – in the economy, in our shared environment, in extreme weather disasters, in the growing danger of pandemics.”
(As we go through the Communist Program together, you may notice a remarkable alignment between the Communist Party strategy and the policies of the Democratic Party. If you want to understand this alignment, please read Trevor Loudon’s massive volume, The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress. Readers who go through Loudon’s volume will be surprised at the number of communist-connected politicians in the Democratic Party. These are by no means minor politicians and include both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.)
One of the first curiosities we encounter in the communist text is repeated references to something the communists call the “ultra-right.” Who is the ultra-right? It is Christians and patriots who want to defend and uphold the Constitution against enemies, foreign and domestic. Of course, this is my definition of the ultra-right. As you will see, the communists have a less flattering way of describing such people. From the communist point of view, Christian and patriotic defenders of the Constitution are bigots and imperialists, monopoly capitalists and militarists.
According to the Communist Program, “The solution to ultra-right domination lies in building the broadest, most inclusive unity among our multinational, male/female, multigenerational working class, starting with the labor movement, racially and nationally oppressed people, women, and youth. We must unite lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and straight people; professionals and intellectuals; seniors; and the disabled; and the mass people’s movements including the peace, environmental, health care, education, housing, and other movements. This all-people’s front to defeat the ultra-right is in the process of developing … to protect special programs and services, to win health care for all, and to win control of all three branches of government from the right wing.” (P. 5)
This exposition leads us to three questions. First Question: How can the communists take over all three branches of government if they aren’t running communists for office? Second question: Are the communists using another political party to take control of government? Third Question: Given the obvious answer to questions one and two: Have the communists now won all three branches of government under a false Democratic flag?
In 1983 I attended a communist meeting at the Science Lecture Hall of the University of California at Irvine. A communist gave a lecture on how the Communist Party USA was planning to take over the Democratic Party through its left wing and run a stealth communist for president. For me the answer to the three questions is perfectly obvious. Of course, the apparent does not exhaust the real.
The Communist Program says they are building an “all-people’s front … to win control of all three branches of government….” Who do you think their candidates were in the last election? One need not factor in Biden’s special relationship with Beijing. Set aside, for the moment, his characterization of the Chinese communists as “good people.” Also, take no notice of Biden’s son, Hunter, who took money from the Mayor of Moscow’s wife. That is not important here. Just read the Communist Program for America. If you begin to feel ill, I assure you: It’s nothing you ate; but it may be related to something you once swallowed (i.e., that communism is dead, that the Soviet Union is no more, that the KGB folded shop).
To understand what the communists are trying to accomplish in America, let us begin with the following important sentences in their Program: “The peoples of the world need a new economic order, one which helps countries to develop at the expense of imperialism and the transnationals. This will require replacement of the current capitalist international economic institutions with ones led by anti-imperialist countries.” (P. 19)
So, there it is. The Communist Party USA is laboring so that America will not be the world’s leading country. As their Program states, they want to replace the current economic order, based on U.S. global leadership, with a new order “led by anti-imperialist countries.” And who are these anti-imperialist countries? If you don’t know, I’ll list a few of them: China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela, South Africa, Congo, Zimbabwe, Angola, Nicaragua, Iran, Russia, etc.
Are you beginning to grasp how this works?
The communists have written up a bill of indictment against the United States as follows: “Our country, our people, and our environment are all being destroyed by the greed of a few obscenely wealthy capitalist groupings. Our world is threatened by the ravages of capitalist globalization, by relentless efforts to drive wages down to the lowest possible level, by attempts to destroy unions and all protections won by workers through struggle, by the spread of toxic wastes, and by imperialist war. We can’t and won’t let this continue.”
When your goal is to bring down a great country, you need to make a strong case against that country. More than that, you need to sabotage that country’s economy. You need to hurt its energy sector. You need to increase unemployment. Come to think of it, what was the first thing President Biden did on entering office. He canceled the Keystone XL pipeline, costing 11,000 U.S. jobs and weakening our energy independence (thereby strengthening Russia and Venezuela). Call it one of several “coincidences.”
According to the Communist Program, “We need radical solutions, real democracy, and real unity.” If this theme was echoed in President Biden’s inaugural, it will be chalked up by many to yet another coincidence. Please disregard this for now. Whatever Biden means by “democracy and unity,” we will leave it for the reader to decide. What the communists mean by unity is the construction of an “all-people’s front” against the “ultra-right.” What they mean by democracy is the “enlargement” of democracy by the inclusion of every conceivable victim group into the “all-people’s front.”
In each stage of struggle, say the communists, a strategy must be developed. “The world and domestic balance of forces” must be considered. The goal here is to build “socialist consciousness,” which necessarily excludes all other kinds of consciousness. Socialist unity, in this context, simultaneously seeks to divide and conquer the non-socialist world by assigning people to various “oppressed” groups in order to build the largest possible “democratic” coalition. On page 25 of the Communist Program, it states: “The U.S. Constitution, as originally written, placed many restrictions on democracy, so from the time of the country’s founding there has been a continual battle to extend democracy.”
Therefore the communists are building a united “all-people’s front” of victims – of oppressed and exploited persons – who are indoctrinated to stand against the “ultra-right” and deliver the country into communist hands. This vast coalition of “oppressed” Americans will vote to strip away the Constitution, which prevents full democracy from being implemented. “The struggle to protect and expand democracy is the way to defeat the ultra-right,” says the Communist Program. “It is the way to prevent fascism.” This, of course, is why they want an open border – so they can flood the country with new “democratic voters” who are easier to manipulate because they are poor and desperate.
Of course, there is an aspect of democracy which the communists refer to as “economic democracy.” This is the idea – which is very appealing to the poor – that everyone is entitled to a “fair share” of goodies from the “rich.” Of course, who is “rich”? The rich, in this case, is anyone with money who is not aligned with the communists. As a sidenote: If this process of revolutionary spoliation goes on long enough, nearly everyone outside the communist party will be desperately poor and dependent on the government; and that will leave them without any means of resistance. To quote Trotsky on the matter, “In a country where the sole employer is the State, opposition means death by slow starvation.”
Communist spoliation also turns an economy into a zero-sum game; first, because socialism kills the goose that laid the golden egg; and second, because the ruling party will take what it wants at everyone else’s expense. Violence and mass theft are intrinsic to communism. Why? Because “democratic struggle” merely brings the “people’s forces to the brink of socialism.” [Italics added] To push the country into outright socialism you need to deploy violent means because mass killing and expropriations go together. You cannot take property from millions of people without killing many of those same people. Thus the Communist Program alludes to “sharp struggles to protect and expand democracy.” Those “sharp struggles” will involve the imposition of a secret police regime, making opposition to “democracy” a criminal offense. This will be justified on the grounds that the ultra-right will oppose “economic democracy,” which is the true essence of socialism.
If Mao Zedong said that “All reactionaries are paper tigers,” the American communists are not so sanguine. That is why they need militant cadres – like the thugs from Black Lives Matter and Antifa. They need a very large coalition of “oppressed” and angry minorities to fill out their fighting ranks. “Historically and continuing today,” says the Communist Program, “African Americans and their organizations play a tremendous role in democratic and class struggles and in building alliances with progressive movements….”
In their effort to divide and conquer America by race, the communists have singled out black Americans as ripe for recruitment. This is a logical strategy, by no means as benevolent as it might seem. African Americans, after all, are Americans. When the dark side of communism emerges, blacks will be oppressed along with everyone else.
The Communist Program also sees a special role for Mexican Americans. The communists say the Mexican people in America are the “fastest growing” part of the population. Mexicans face “language discrimination,” job discrimination, cultural suppression, anti-immigrant laws and abuses, police brutality and hate crimes. One might ask why Mexicans keep immigrating to America if they are treated so abominably. But then, of course, the communists want the Mexicans to think of themselves as victims so they will join their “people’s front.” And here again, opening the border allows the communists to expand their ranks. (And, indeed, Joe Biden also loves that open border, coincidentally.)
While we’re talking about the oppression of the blacks and Mexicans, we might as well pencil in the struggle for “other indigenous peoples,” as well as “Arabs and Middle Eastern peoples.” If any overseas culture is incompatible with American culture, let us bring them here in large numbers. All the better to divide and conquer the whole. New Muslim citizens are sure to be democratic voters, signifying an even larger people’s front, hurrying democracy toward socialism. To further enrage the Muslims against America, the communists love to dwell upon America’s “imperialist wars” against Iraq and Afghanistan. Bringing the “victims of imperialism” into the imperialist heartland is a particularly delicious strategy. The Communist Party Program states, “a substantial majority of Arabs, Muslims, and South Asian peoples in the U.S. have become active opponents of the ultra-right.” (P. 34)
Besides gathering every aggrieved victim of “imperialism” within our borders, the communists see women as their most important weapon of conquest. “Working class women suffer additional forms of oppression and exploitation than do male workers,” says the Communist Program. “The capitalists gain super-profits as a result….” Here the communists have played a dirty double game, since it was the communists who insisted that women abandon their protected status of homemakers and mothers. Lest anyone forget, Betty Friedan and other leading feminists were communists. Make the women into workers, make them miserable, turn them against the men, and win a new batch of angry victims for the cause. There is no real care for the happiness of women in this political game; and it goes without saying that the communists would never ask women to return to the kitchen. “Like racism,” says the Communist Program, “sexism is a key tool of the ruling class against all women….” According to the communists, “There is an ultra-right ideological attack on women’s role in society and the family, trying to force women to revert to a submissive role, to limit them to issues of family and children, and to assign blame [to them] for the high rate of divorce….” Here the communists want to eat their cake and have it. If women go to work, they are “doubly-exploited” by capitalism. If they stay home, they are reverting to a “submissive role.” (P. 37)
The Communist Program sees women as the most numerous victim group of all, and the most psychologically vulnerable. But there are other psychologically vulnerable groups: like children raised without mothers at home, or raised in single-parent households. The communists tell us that “youth and students” are also oppressed. “Capitalism seeks to use youth as cannon fodder in its imperialist adventures.” In addition, says the Communist Program, “there is an ultra-right ideological assault on youth, especially youth of color.” (P. 38)
We should not shortchange the many other victim groups in communism’s “all-people’s front”: Chinese-Americans, the elderly and the disabled. Above all, we should not forget the gays, lesbians and transgendered. According to the communists, “The ultra-right uses homophobia and attacks on gays and lesbians as wedges to divide its opposition.” These attacks on gays and lesbians are allegedly launched by the Christian Right, a subgroup of the “ultra-right.” (Please note: The inclusion of gays and lesbians in the “all-people’s front” is a communist master-stroke, paving the way for the exclusion and persecution of traditional Christians who have always been a problem for the communists).
Chapter 4 of the Communist Program is titled “Unity Against the Ultra-Right.” The Communist Program defines the ultra-right as “the military industrial complex, the oil and energy industries … the pharmaceuticals …. sections of the high-tech industry, finance capital, and massive manufacturing and distributive giants, such as Wal-Mart. The Ultra-right includes ‘neo-conservatives,’ social and fiscal conservatives, religious fundamentalists, nativists, libertarians, and other right-wing trends.” (P. 48-49)
The communists claim that the ultra-right has reduced government spending “on the needs of the poor, the nationally and racially oppressed, and the working class, while increasing various forms of subsidy and tax cuts for big corporations and the super-rich.” The communists claim that America is not “an ordinary bourgeois-democratic regime. It has a conservative-authoritarian nature, which rather than seeking to unite the capitalist class through compromise, instead seeks to dominate less militaristic sections of the capitalist class.” Thus, the wicked imperialists of big business “impose the most reactionary policies on all politicians and the corporate forces they represent. The current ultra-right conservative-authoritarian policies … escalate the danger of fascism.”
While the Communist Program warns against overstating “the fascist danger,” they nonetheless see this danger as real. Fascism, say the communists, “is the open terrorist dictatorship of the most reactionary, militarist, racist section of monopoly capital. Fascism is not inevitable, but the working class and allied forces will not be able to prevent the ultra-right section of the capitalist class from moving further towards fascism unless we combat pressures and structural changes in that direction….” (P. 50)
The communist text reminds us that reactionary concepts of “freedom and democracy” signify only “freedom for the corporations and democracy for the few.” Returning to the theme of American imperialism, the communists say that the ultra-right “claims the moral right to attack any country it wants, to conduct war without end until it succeeds everywhere, and even to use ‘tactical’ nuclear weapons and militarize space. Whoever does not support U.S. policy is condemned as an opponent.” (P. 50)
According to the communists, the attacks of September 11, 2001, were “a smokescreen” to take away people’s “constitutional rights of free speech and assembly….” Furthermore, “The ultra-right’s open and covert uses of racism divide and weaken its opposition. It means an increase in the repressive power of the police and their racist practices. It means continual and increasing restrictions on democratic rights, including the right to vote. It demagogically uses right-wing religious prejudices … to eliminate separation of church and state. It means a growth of military spending and of the military industrial complex. It means a growth of nationalist ideology, jingoism, and xenophobia.” (P. 50)
According to the communists, the ultra-right’s most important effort is their “appeal to the Christian Right.” This is based on “a false championing of ‘family values’ and ‘human life.’ In reality they oppose women’s reproductive rights, attack civil liberties of the LGBT community, oppose all affirmative action to move towards equality….” (P. 51)
As any reader can see, much of the Communist Program bears a marked resemblance to the rhetoric of leading Democrat politicians. How is this to be explained? According to the communists, the Democratic Party leadership, though still “imperialist,” is nonetheless ready to “ameliorate social discontent.” The Democrats are therefore a ready vehicle for the communists because they have rallied “African American and Latino communities to gain representation, as well as [being] the main mechanism used to elect labor, progressive, and even Left activists to public office….” The communists add the following caveat, however: “There exists an internal struggle within the Democratic Party between centrist forces who collaborate with the right wing, and centrist forces opposed to the right wing. Those opposed to the right wing are often willing to align with progressive elements that seek to defeat the program of the ultra-right.” (P. 54)
Here, the reader needs to stop for a moment and absorb one further thought; namely, that the communists infiltrate both the right and the left. Their agents work to polarize the United States because infiltration combined with polarization has successfully pushed all factions to the left even as it benefits the “all-people’s front.” One of the benefits of infiltrating the right is to ensure a preponderance of people who can be compromised and blackmailed, or who can be criminally indicted when the time is ripe. In the future we will see many mistakes and scandals on the right. How many of these will be of native origin, and how many will owe to agent provocateurs, may never be known; but make no mistake, the communists and their foreign allies are continuously active within all important political factions. Anyone engaged in politics should know this; yet nobody seems to have the requisite discernment. For example, the odd claim that Trump was a Russian agent was never borne out by facts. The people who leveled the accusation had no sense of who a Russian agent might be; and, for all that, they were more likely to accuse an innocent person than a guilty one. Our political culture is, in this regard, without discernment; and the cause may be found in the general greed, ambition and immorality of journalists, politicians, spies and analysts. The connection here may be lost on many readers, so I will put it another way: Dishonesty and vanity do not coincide with discernment. The light of truth, betrayed inside the soul, necessarily results in a dimming of the intellect.
Returning to our theme, the communists believe their path to victory lies within the dialectic of the Democratic Party. There are, according to the communists, two kinds of Democrats: (1) Democrats who will support the right wing; (2) Democrats who will oppose the right wing. Logically, the communists are eager the strengthen the latter faction. This can be done by continued agitation and propaganda and by enlarging their coalition of victim groups within the Party. These, in turn, will apply increasing pressure on elected officials. Thus the communist text advocates “the widest possible unity of all class and social forces whose interests run counter to those of the most reactionary section of the transnationals.” By forming an all-inclusive coalition to crush the right, the communists also hope to attract moderate Republican voters. This struggle, they say, is “of great significance.” To defeat the right’s political power means a direct encounter with America’s “extreme reactionaries, militarists, and racists” who may “seek to impose fascism – an open terrorist dictatorship of big capital.” To defeat these elements, “Only the replacement of capitalism … by socialism can finally do away with the ultra-right threat.”
This is what the communist are doing – in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country. It is by no means all that they’re doing. There are many different communist organizations and actors engaged in a wide variety of activities. Yet here, in the Program of the Communist Party USA, we see an outline that is clear and easy to follow. Are they ready to push the country into full socialism? Probably yes. The only question is the expected “fascist” push from the ultra-right. Is this a communist fantasy? Or will the right actually resist as we are pushed all the way into socialism? And further: Would violent action from the right accelerate the communist plan, allowing them to consolidate their dictatorship? Or would it stop them?

61 thoughts on “The Communist Program”
Jeff, not sure if you can comment and if it is related to this article, this speech is from Szeto Wah (Deceased) who is regarded as a Chinese Communist Party spy and is known to be involved with the Hong Kong Underground Communist Party:
This is what he said about the Hong Kong Professional Teacher’s Union involvement with the Hong Kong Democratic Party founded by Martin Lee:
“And finally, the teachers’ union is also the organizational base of the Hong Kong Democratic Party, which is the strongest pro-democracy political party in the city. It should be no surprise that the Hong Kong Professional Teachers’ Union is the flagship of Hong Kong’s democratic movement and, in concert with the independent trade union movement as a whole, provides the energy and organizational strength that sustains it. Historically, mass-based independent trade unions have played the critical role in promoting and sustaining democracy around the world. It is no different in Hong Kong.”
This is what Szeto Wah said about China and the Chinese Communist Party:
“Still, I am optimistic. I might not see a democratic China in my lifetime, but I believe a democratic China must come.”
One of my New Zealand contacts who read the PDF on Szeto Wah’s speech basically said this:
“The speech was very two-faced – claiming to be an initiator of the Unions movement, while also claiming that ‘democracy’ would evolve in Communist China – the two don’t mix.”
“Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep.” -Mikhail Gorbachev, speech to the Soviet Politburo, November 1987
Between being convinced that Communism had ended and the Cold War was over, along with the Klinton/DNC crime family, and their deep connections with the Red Chinese and the Communists still in power in Moscow, they have sold the US down the road for 30 pieces of silver.
They get what they want, which is total power in the US while answering to Peking and Moscow.
The rest of us get the scraps that fall from the table.
The only thing keeping it from completely happening is the strong adherence to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Too many will not give up those Rights.
There is still the possibility that seeing the results they wanted from the so-called pandemic, which was really an intentional and deliberate biological attack on the Western nations to disrupt the social and economic structure, creating confusion while allowing for an election to be stolen right from under our noses. There could very well be more of these type of events in our immediate future, which may give them the grounds they want to suspend the Constitution.
If not biological attacks, then possibly small area nuclear attacks under the facade of terrorism.
Just saw this and it is definitely worth thinking about even if the source, CNBC, is rather questionable.
President Vladimir Putin warned on Wednesday that the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated preexisting global problems and imbalances, and that these could deteriorate to a point where there is a fight of “all against all.”
“The coronavirus pandemic has become a major challenge to mankind, and it has accelerated structural changes, the preconditions for which were already in place,” he said at a virtual meeting of the World Economic Forum. “We have every reason to believe that the tensions might be aggravated even further,” Putin warned, citing experts that have likened the current state of global affairs to the 1920s and 1930s and that parallels could be drawn between then and now when it comes to the scale and scope of what he called systemic “challenges and potential threats.”
Looks like a lot of what Jeff has been writing about for the past couple of months may start to play out.
a few days ago, a multi-billionaire businessman at Davos said that “capitalism is dead.” and that the world is headed towards “a planetary emergency.” this is all made up lies stoked by the power elite globalists/communists–the global tech giants are going along with it because it puts them in power over the rest of us all–its all being done under the rubric of “democracy.”
The communists unleashed this virus and the world has mishandled it. Only now the situation spirals out of control. You cannot stop the motor of the world because of a virus. You take casualties and keep moving. Otherwise billions die instead of millions. The Chinese made the damn virus by adding gain of function. They were backed into a corner by Trump. They over-reacted. Looks like war is coming.
Excellent analysis, worth a wide distribution. One more thought: you write about Biden as a significant figure. He is just a spineless front for other people, including Kamala Harris, who is firmly on the far left of all political figures in DC. It might be worth exploring her role in promoting the communist agenda and people who placed her in that role.
Kamala and Joe are both communist-connected. Loudon shows this in his book. It is a fact that every President and Vice President are significant figures, not on account of their personal qualities, but on account of the office held — the two highest in the land. And what could be more significant than an insignificant person in the most significant office?
“And what can more significant than an insignificant person in the most significant office?” and “Dishonesty and vanity do not coincide with discernment. The light of truth, betrayed inside the soul, necessarily results in a dimming of the intellect.” Great stuff!
Ah, now we’re getting to the crux of the matter, The Christian Right. As the mask starts to come off Marxism Redivivus, so its ultimate and true target – it’s raison d’etre from Satan’s perspective – starts to be finally revealed. Like some have said before, this is the outworking of Revelation 11’s “beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit” and it shall, sadly, prevail against the Christian voice in this world… for a very short season. And then the tide will turn, irrevocably and superlatively in our favour.
Communists, you may think your cause is in the future and ours in the past and that may energise you to take the fight to a slumbering, confused and woefully unprepared opponent. And yes, I believe you will “win” (as stated, for a brief blip in history), but your atheism has blindsided you to our ace card: the King of Kings. And when He stands up to restore His testimony on earth, the righteous shall begin to rule and justice will start to be done on this earth, to your utter astonishment. Communism will be held to account and will be utterly destroyed from the face of this planet and abhorred throughout the generations to come, in every nation, kindred, people and tongue because this is the Lord’s earth, along with the fullness thereof. And don’t you forget it.
My fear is the average person has no idea how the Marxist are behind the present push of the Democratic Party and fools in the Republican Party who go along willingly with the greatest deception ever undertaken. Every method known and unknown will be used to bring patriotic Americans to their knees. Free spear is under attack along with the prosecution of “right wing “enemies of the state. An inability to recognize where the danger comes from will prevent us from mounting a defensive strategy.
I spoke to a recently retired US. Naval officer, who told me Taiwan and the South China Sea are already lost and that he expects China to attack Taiwan in the next four years. When I asked if they have the power to take Guam and break the second encirclement, he replied that they certainly have the power, and the only question involves their logistical capability. I think that the Chinese know that they have us in an extremely dangerous position, but fear the country awakening to the empty shell that is Biden. If this is so, then the logical solution is for them to attack soon. My main question is whether they intend to provoke the US. into firing the first shot or if the attack will come completely by surprise.
I think they need us to start it. But who knows? Surprise is a powerful advantage.
The CCP will definitely go for the low-hanging fruit first because it is the easiest and least costly to take. That would mean Taiwan, closely followed by the Spratley and Paracel islands. Everything else will follow depending on the world/US response, if any.
The CCP wants complete control over the Western Pacific rim.
I could be wrong, but I think they are angling to surrender Taiwan without a fight. After all, there are elections in Taiwan; and why not win at the ballot box when it is less costly and you can cheat — as we see in our own case.
Jeff, do you think that China intends to launch war in the Pacific before or after gaining control of Taiwan? If they quickly forced us back to Hawaii, I expect Taiwan would come to terms. China might not even have to rig their elections.
I thought this question, asked on the CPUSA website, might also prove interesting to the readers of this blog. I am not including the response by a Party spokesman, but it basically suggests that the speaker and the Party stand together against Putin.
I want to say at once: I was born and live in Russia, so I immediately apologize for possible errors in the text. I am very interested in the political struggle in the USA, because on the Internet I often see young, energetic Americans who take to the streets with posters and slogans in support of communism, socialism or other left-wing, macrsite ideas. It surprises me. I myself am a student, and I myself participate in a political struggle, but already in Russia. And this is what I want to say: young people in Russia act in a completely different way. We take to the streets in support of right-wing ideas, libertarian values, and advocate capitalism free from pressure. We oppose Putin and his regime because he is a former KGB officer who is nostalgic for Soviet times and is trying to crush the market and business with government intervention. The Russians are the only people who have felt the fullness of the ideas of Marx and Lenin. We lived in the times of socialism, our parents sought communism, and what did this lead to? We do not want to go back to the times of Red Russia, because these times are monstrous. And while we rejoice for the Americans who have chosen the real capitalist Trump, the Americans want to overthrow him. It’s funny, but only from the side. America is a great country, and it has become so thanks to the principles of capitalism, on the dollar system keeps the entire world economy. In socialism, we see a threat to this system. You are theorists who have never lived in a socialist system. We lived and know what it is. We know what a team, state economy looks like. We know what it is like to go out into the streets in the pouring rain with red posters and march, and say, “Thank you the Party for our happy childhood!” When everyone wants to go home as quickly as possible. We know what it is like when the rate of your currency is shaped not by free competition, but in the offices of officials. We know how to live in a world of universal equality and closed borders. Believe me, I do not wish America such a fate, and therefore I wonder why this is what you want.
Jeff, thanks for your very informative articles. I just finished watching on Netflix “Invasian USA.” Produced in 1952. Have you watched this movie? It is exactly what you have described how a communist invasion of the USA might play out.
I have not seen that movie. It seems I should have a look at it.
If I were the CCP planners, I wouldn’t bother with attacking Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, or any other country around the “South China Sea”, because those countries are looking to a far more powerful country to provide back-up in case they are invaded. Rather I’d use all the forces at my disposal to take over that more powerful country, after which those other countries will fall like ripe fruit into the CCP’s hands. I don’t fear making this suggestion, because that’s exactly what I hear are the CCP plans. The CCP must defeat that more powerful country, I mean that it is completely under their control, otherwise that country can claw back and possibly defeat the PLA.
Is Biden trying to engineer a situation where it appears that the U.S. fired first? That would suit the CCP fine.
I sometimes wonder this too.
One of the first novels I ever read was Jules Vernes. ‘Mysterious Island,’ no doubt a captivating adventure for a sixth grader in the early ‘60’s, and No, there were no radiated creatures to fight like the spun-up movie version, but somehow Captain Nemo always showed up at the opportune time to help the stoic castaways. And then there was the mandatory 11th grade semester class of AVC, (Americanism vs. Communism, ‘69’), although my interests might have been elsewhere, but I cannot recall a Marcuse or Adorno or any other critical theorist lingering in my contemplations. However, it did leave me with a thirst for History on the far side of the bridge, as it allowed me a small glimpse into the machinations of The Mysterious Wellsian world order.
But lately my studies revolve around comparative structures of thought in Buddhist, Christian, and the Existentialist and their differing viewpoints of suffering in this world. And I found that the prophet Isaiah had nailed it down for me in a perfectly satisfying definition of Existential-Nihilism, (Isaiah 47:7-10) 7 “…For thou hast said, None seeth me… and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else besides me.” (Also Rev.18:7) Not exactly Dostoyevsky or Sartre
Okay, so Nobody sees me; and ‘I am’ and there is nobody to… JUDGE me? Oh. Hmm? (Eccl: 5:11) “Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Wow, ‘fully set,’ love that old English.
And as I see this recurring thought running through scripture that the godless say, (Isaiah 29:15) “Who sees me?” Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?” Or I’ll do whatever, (! @#$%), er…I am entitled to… uh, disposed, or compelled to do; And, (Jer. 5:31) “The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”
Compelled? You mean stubborn, right? Come on, first religion and now politics too, are we in a bar? But then deception runs deep, deeper than the Marianas trench. But why would one want to quench one’s thirst from a polluted stream, and not rather delight in the fresh water of a mountain spring? That’s a long journey, as the Chairman says, ‘many steps through forest, up mountain.’ For if…
“He feeds on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?” (Isa 44.20) Now there’s a sermon, carving up a tree into some simulacra, overlaying it with gold, setting the idol on an altar, and using the wood chips to fire up the campfire to break bread with your fellow travelers, (Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll). Who would have thought that these old guys had answers a few millennia back? A posthumous prophet? (Uh, oh, another rabbit hole on the ceremony of sacrifice, as masked Man reduced to Insignificance=Zero=World as Gulag), But then again as we repeat History…
“The pride of your heart has deceived you, you who live in the clefts of the rock, in your lofty dwelling, who say in your heart, “Who will bring me down to the ground?” (Obadiah 1:3) Down to the ground? Hah. Will be throwing the dirt on the grave… but wait …snatching the shovels away, maybe we could, “Turn you to the strong hold, ye Prisoners of Hope: even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee;” (Zechariah 9:12)
Yes, Another fine deception, uh… mess, you’ve gotten us into. Too many cooks and all… for The Despoliation is brewing, Operation Unity is cooking in the oven and beach front property in Taiwan is certain for a Short Squeeze. War? Ah, Hubris, that old clown, knowing that the wanton nymph Nemesis is strewing her rose petals along the cemetery’s path. Is there a swivel chair in the Oval office? Can one see the barbed wire from the window?
Jeremiah lived during the dissolution of the Judean kingdom. The exiles were exiled and some of the remnant wanted prayer. Still wouldn’t listen, ended up back where they had begun, in Egypt, listening to their wives complaining of their complicity, (Jeremiah 44:19). But we live in different times, don’t we? We can achieve, hope, build, dream. If we need help, what do we cry, ‘I am,’ and nobody likes me? I think not, for… “hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” (Romans5:5) Work your faith, ask of the Lord, for… “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” Do we need love to help us forgive, ask Him? This is not some tragi-comedy-opera-movie where there is a lack of understanding, or nauseous jumping to conclusions or fake psy-op with special effect bullets all blown up for dramatic tension. Or is Captain Nemo coming to our rescue? I think not. But then again, a Buddhist, a Christian and an Existentialist walk into a park… in the dark… equal distant from each other…
An existentialist, a solipsist and a nihilist walk into a bar. The existentialist and the solipsist start debating the existence of the bar. The nihilist, annoyed, starts yelling that it doesn’t matter. The solipsist says the nihilist and the existentialist don’t matter because they aren’t real. The existentialist, taking a sip of beer then says, “I drink, therefore I am.”
5 years before the US Civil war began—Senator Charles Sumner spoke at length about anti-slavery in the states and was afterwards brutally attacked by another Representative—almost died from the severe caning attack. PB Brooks was only fined a small amount of money, never served time in jail and continued on as Representative. Are we heading to this again? Where are brave men and women who stand up and say No, No, No.
The situation is by far more desperate, as the people we are dealing with today — unlike the old Southern planters — have no morality, no honor, and no limits on what they will or won’t do.
Zero Hedge referenced an article in Financial Times that claims the PLA simulated an attack on a U.S. carrier group that is presently in the South China Sea. The slightest mistake, like the downing of Iran Air Flight 655 in 1988, if people on the U.S. ships had thought that the PLA had launched a real attack, there would have been war. That carrier group in is that area per orders of Biben.
This reminds me of how FDR sent U.S. ships into harms way in the North Atlantic to try to bait the Germans into attacking them, thereby getting the U.S. officially into World War II. The Germans didn’t take the bait. That’s why FDR went through the back door to incite Japan to attack.
Is Biden trying to start a war between the U.S. and China?
He knows not what he does?
Biden will merge the US with China. Everyone will need vsas to travel from town to town. China will go door to door to confiscate guns. They will take homes vacated by evictees.
No eviction. Necessary. Just call the undertaker.
Not sure how my collection of cowboy guns will do against modern weaponry, but at least I’ll go out with style shooting my 1873 Winchester.
Hope that isn’t the same weapon Custer was using at the Little Bighorn.
Jeff, Tucker C talks about “the program” moving into high gear without saying the C word: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdA-4eiCIe8. Maybe next time. May God help us…
Great post, Jeff. Our country is in grave danger and I feel that the citizens will have to rise up and fight the battle should the CCP try and take over. Because our new leaders aren’t worth a damn and the military is trained to obey these morons. The citizens are screwed if they don’t rise up and be heard. Thank you for posting.
I am discomforted by how much I hear discussion of the nuclear arsenal and nuclear command by the victorious Democrats.
Disarming us is one of their objectives. Without nuclear weapons we are disarmed.
From the quoted article:
“… such a policy could also be designed to prohibit first use, including preemptive nuclear attacks and launches on warning of attack. These scenarios dangerously increase the risk of starting nuclear war by mistake.”
“Some argue that prohibiting first use would undermine deterrence. Not so. Deterrence rests on our unquestioned ability to retaliate to a nuclear attack. The United States possesses the capability to retaliate even after being hit because of our nuclear-armed submarines hidden under the oceans. Any nuclear strike against the United States would be suicide for the attacker, as a massive U.S. retaliation would surely follow.”
“Policymakers should also go a step further and formally require the executive and legislative branches to jointly share a decision to launch nuclear weapons, as proposed in a bill introduced by Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey and California Rep. Ted Lieu. The Constitution gives Congress the authority to declare war, not the president. If the first use of nuclear weapons is not an act of war, we do not know what is”.
“Such policies would provide clear directives for the military to follow: A launch could be ordered only if the nation had already been attacked with nuclear weapons, a highly unlikely scenario given the known ability for the United States to retaliate, or if Congress had approved the decision, providing a constitutional check to executive power. Both would be infinitely less risky — to our nation and to the world — than our current doctrine.”
“Less risky” than our current doctrine?
Any “doctrine” other than launch under attack guarantees defeat without exception in the face of a determined attack on our strategic capabilities.
Dr. Peter Pry has written several excellent books on the dynamics of the nuclear “Triad” which are available online for zero charge, and he is adamant that the land based ICBM element can’t be sacrificed either through arms control or a failure to launch “under attack.”
We are getting down to it now.
So many people are afraid of the Virus, yet where is the proof? Mainstream Media lies all the time. Medical records are private and confidential. The Public has to accept the reports, or not, without veracious authentication. Stay at home and social distancing regulations, imposed by government on business to enforce, isolate individuals from friends, family, and associates. Isolation creates an altered state of consciousness. There is no transparency, no leadership, no definitive explanation about the Virus or about restrictive measures. This induces anxiety, which is a hyper suggestible state, like hypnosis, only it tends to enhance negative emotions and beliefs. A surgical mast does not block a virus. The dentist only uses it to keep the patients blood and spit out of the doctor’s own face, yet every business makes it’s customers wear one, because Government tells them to. In NAZI Germany anyone who didn’t wear the Swastika arm band was suspect. This is indeed, just the beginning.
Senator, Rand Paul, M.D., Ridicules Mask-Wearing as ‘All About Submission’ to Government
“If you’ve had the disease or you’ve been vaccinated and you’re several weeks out of your second dose, throw your mask away and tell Dr. Fauci to take a leap because, once you have immunity, you don’t need to do this,” the Kentucky Republican told Fox News host Lauren Ingram.
Why did the Boy in the Bubble, live in the bubble, instead of just wearing a mask?
A Must Read
(summary and conclusion at least)
“A Bayesian analysis concludes beyond a reasonable doubt that SARS-CoV-2 is not a natural zoonosis but instead is laboratory derived” (99.8%)
I’m still searching for the scientific study I read, that was published last Spring, which statistically proves that more than ninety percent of the World population, had already at that time, developed antibodies to SARS-2.
Now I wonder about testing for the virus. If an individual has developed SARS-2, antibodies, either with symptoms or not, do they test any differently as someone who has been inoculated with a vaccine? Also, how does a test show that someone is sick with Covid, as opposed to those who have developed the antibodies?
When a patient visits the doctor prior to the ostensible, Covid-19 pandemic, the physician would ordinarily not test a sample of bodily fluids, but would diagnose symptomatically; usually proclaiming a case of the ‘Flu’. Now when a patient complains of symptoms, they are tested for Covid, and if they have the antibodies, along with symptoms, such as high fever and coughing, they are diagnosed positive for Covid. They still don’t test for the Flu.
If a patient has symptoms of Covid and SARS-2 antibodies, they might be immune to SARS-2/Covid, and merely have a case of improperly diagnosed Flu. The deck is stacked. This is not science. It’s the same sort of chicanery of a stage magician.
Oh, but don’t dare say anything critical of the United States; right, Jeffery? We The People, need to enforce the original Constitution For The United States Of America, and the original Bill Of Rights, by exercise of Common Law. It’s not about the South rising again, it’s about rescinding Martial Rule.
Lincoln stated that his war was not about slavery, but rather about preserving the Union. What he obfuscated was the economic injustice of the North against the South. The Confederate Constitution from before the start of Lincoln’s war, abolished the importation of slaves from anywhere other than the North. The US didn’t abolish slavery until after Lincoln’s war. Actually, both sides were entirely disingenuous about abolishing slavery, but Martial Law has never been recinded.
Coronavirus adviser argued dangerous endeavor a ‘risk worth taking’
[ As evidence that the Yunnan virus was manipulated in the Wuhan lab, Hilton pointed out that the two viruses are the same, except for two key elements: The COVID-19 virus is more infectious and can enter human cells in the respiratory system.
“Those are the exact places in the viral sequence where gain-of-function techniques would be applied, if … you were funded by the NAID to research bat coronaviruses to explore emergences or spillover potential,” he said.
“Spillover potential” refers to the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans.
That exact gain-of-function research, he pointed out, was touted in a Nov. 30, 2017, progress report tied to an NAID grant. ]
A binary biological weapon requires two elements. A messenger RNA vaccine may be the second element. It can be used to change the immune reaction in a set population so there is no defense to a given pathogen. Result? Organ failure and sepsis. What pathogen are we talking about? Perhaps a pathogen yet to be introduced.
Is Dr Fauci, a Fascist, Communist, Machiavellian, or what? Which is more better?
He need not be ideological. All he has to be is a “modern” man; that is, someone who does not believe in transcendentals. Then what remains? Wealth, comfort, and the arrogance of office. Such people are easily owned by those who aim higher.
Gasprom increased gas supplies via pipeline to China using Power of Siberia Pipeline while Biden revoked permit to advace Keystone XL pipeline.
Who’s using oil?

If I’m of the walking dead, I don’t intend to spend my final days, cowering in a hovel. I’m going out with booze and hookers!
Jeff, I have been reading Weaver’s essays lately, and I am wondering if you have encountered his concept of the mystic soldier. He discusses it at greatest length in “A Dialectic on Total War”. Basically the mystic soldier is a man who finds a “mystic imperative” in war. He is delighted by the pageantry of the drill and finds a “deep if obscure satisfaction” from the spectacle of slaughter. In peacetime they are often decent and ordinary men, but war brings out the strain of Mars in them. Weaver states that Patton, Stonewall Jackson, and Sherman were men of this sort. Do you think that we will need mystic soldiers to lead us in the battles to come?
Charismatic leaders are invariably assassinated. Politicians, royalty, and dictators, can not compete with true power of personality. They can only use agency power to impose their will. JFK, RFK, MLK, John Lennon, Bruce Lee, and Princess Diana, case in point. Okay, so Diana was a twit, but she was the most popular celebrity in the World, and had begun to exert her influence, counter to totalitarian interests. If everyone could vote for queen of the planet, Diana would have been elected by an indisputable landslide. Americans, however, won’t follow a military revolutionary, as long as they have a roof over their heads.
The word “charisma” has been misapplied by the mainstream media (and completely corrupted). I do not think any of the leaders you listed were “charismatic.” As Max Weber invented the term, we must go to his meaning. He meant a leader who has “the gift of grace” in St. Paul’s sense; that is, we can see that God’s grace is upon that person — not that he or she is a graceful person in terms of physical attractiveness.
Yes. In fact, I think he is describing something real. It is something that comes into play at certain moments in history.
[ “I am in the process of transitioning every part of my financial expenses to support Christian businesses, Christian media companies, Christian content creators, and Christian people,” he said. “I am done giving my money to The Enemy and funding the destruction of our country and values. I encourage everyone else to do the same. If they are not serving God, they are serving Satan and I’m simply not going to fund that activity.”
He asked his readers to “examine the businesses, brands, and media companies you currently support both financially and with your time. If they are virtue signaling critical theory nonsense or owned by demons you should immediately stop paying them and using their services.”
