In battle one engages the orthodox and gains victory through the unorthodox.Sun Tzu
This interview with Mr. Moric of the Geopolitical and Empire podcast is an attempt to give background on the Soviet long-range strategy, Anatoliy Golitsyn, James Angleton, and the fall of the Soviet Union. It is too big to treat so quickly, but an overview may be useful for some readers who want a snapshot before embarking on more serious reading. To correct an error, I misspoke when I referred to KGB defector Nosenko exonerating Oswald. I meant to say he exonerated Moscow in the death of JFK. Talking has no edits, but it is lively enough to carry you and Mr. Moric added some nice visuals.
Even conservatives are failing to recognize the stakes here, not that … we’re in favor of sending American troops over to defend or die in Ukraine; but … this is a country just like the Republic of China on Taiwan that deserves its independence from … Russia. I mean, what has happened to the conservative movement, Jeff, where even people who claim to be conservatives on Channels like Fox News are failing to stand up for freedom and independence for freedom-loving people?Cliff Kincaid
The Russian government has announced that all four of its fleets will be going to sea soon. Over 140 ships of the Russian Navy, all at one time, will be leaving port. The exact date has not been given as of this writing. Moscow is calling this “a drill.” At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping on 4 February.
[American leaders] don’t think the balance of power matters any more…. If you think we’ve had trouble with the Russians, just wait for the trouble we are going to have with the Chinese. I am very popular in China. I go to China quite often. I usually start my talks by saying, ‘It’s good to be back among my people.’ Because when I get to China I’m intellectually more at home there than I am in Washington….Professor John Mearsheimer, 2016
Will there be a war over Ukraine? Have recent negotiations opened a path to peace? Unfortunately, the diplomats have achieved very little. The White House says no further talks with Russia have been planned.[i] Worse yet, American intelligence officials say that Russia is setting up a pretext to invade Ukraine. On 14 January Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said, “Without getting into too much detail, we do have information that indicates Russia is already working actively to create a pretext for a potential invasion…. In fact, we have information that they have prepositioned a group of operatives to conduct what we call a ‘false flag operation’; an operation designed to look like an attack on … Russian-speaking people … as an excuse to go in.”[ii]
That is something I absolutely reject. The shoot-to-kill order [in Kazakhstan], to the extent it exists, is wrong and should be rescinded.President Joseph Biden
People have all kinds of odd ideas about the unrest in Kazakhstan. They seem to regard Kazakhstan as an independent country. But it is not. Kazakhstan is a Soviet republic masquerading as an independent country. As such, it is beholden to the Kremlin. In fact, its leaders are Soviet persons. And now that people in Kazakhstan have rebelled against their local government, the country’s leaders have turned to Moscow for security troops. If, by some strange turn of events, Kazakhstan succeeded in asserting its independence, Putin would tell us – as he said about Ukraine – that Kazakhstan “is not a real country.” No. It is part of Moscow’s “near abroad.” In other words, it is a colony of Russia.
In 1943 [Josef Mengele] was appointed by Heinrich Himmler to be chief doctor at Birkenau, the supplementary extermination camp at Auschwitz, where he and his staff selected incoming Jews for labour or extermination and where he supervised medical experiments on inmates to discover means of increasing fertility…. His chief interest, however, was research on twins. Mengele’s experiments often resulted in the death of the subject.Britannica
In the ongoing pandemic, America has the highest per capita death rate in the world. Who is to blame? According to Robert Kennedy, Jr., Dr. Anthony Fauci is to blame. In fact, Kennedy describes Fauci as a corrupt government functionary responsible for hundreds of thousands of unnecessary pandemic deaths. And all the while, says Kennedy, Fauci has been lining his own pockets, assuring big profits for pharmaceutical companies. Even more shocking, Kennedy depicts Fauci as an American Mengele – as an administrator who facilitated “barbaric and illegal experiments on children.”[i] According to Kennedy, “Dr. Fauci … has sanctioned drug companies to experiment on at least fourteen thousand children, many of them Black and Hispanic orphans living in foster homes. He permitted these companies to operate without oversight or accountability. Under Dr. Fauci’s laissez faire rubric, these companies systematically abused and, occasionally, killed children.”[ii]
