Nuclear War: Where Nuclear Winter Meets Global Warming

With global temperatures rising inexorably, some scientists and national security theorists have pondered cooling things down by tinkering mechanically with the planet’s climate.

Clyde Haberman, New York Times
April 3, 2016

The New York Times, in the article quoted from (above), brought together two hoaxes: The headline reads, “Global Warming Gives Science Behind Nuclear Winter a New Purpose.” What this story does not tell, is how Soviet scientists were tasked by the KGB with promoting the theory that nuclear war leads “inexorably” to “Nuclear Winter” (in the same sense that capitalism leads “inexorably” to global warming).

Vladimir Valentinovich Alexandrov (b. 1938), a Soviet mathematician and computer scientist, was tasked by the KGB (via his boss, Evgeny Velikhov). with creating a mathematical model to substantiate nuclear winter theory. He was chosen for this assignment because he was part of a research exchange program with the Americans, operating from 1978-1982.

According to Richard P. Turco and Starely L. Thompson, the resulting global climate model was “a very weak piece of work.” Of course, they revised their criticism later when the political consensus-building began and scientists started losing grant money for holding “the wrong “incorrect” opinions on politically-charged topics. According to an article in National Review Magazine in 1986, Alexandrov changed sides and revealed the bogus nature of his nuclear winter climate models. Then, on 31 March 1985, while attending the Second International Conference of Nuclear Free Zones in Cordoba, Spain, Alexandrov disappeared forever. He was described, by one associate, as being dragged off in a car and taken to the Soviet Embassy.

Is any of this familiar or credible? According to KGB defector Sergie Tretyakov, “The KGB was responsible for creating the entire nuclear winter story to stop the Pershing II missiles.” The fraudulent science of nuclear winter, added Tretyakov, was fed to Western scientists and peace activists.

If the reader goes online to search for this groundbreaking information online, all you will find is nuclear winter propaganda. The lid is closed tight on this story and nobody is supposed to guess the truth. I offer the Alexandrov story, and Tretyakov’s testimony, in order to show how our perceptions are managed by our enemy, and how our ideas about nuclear war — above all — are targeted by that same enemy.

Here is my discussion on nuclear war with Alex Benesch.

Totalitarian Subversion, Part III: Plus New Audio with Jimmy from Brooklyn

All the capitalist countries of the world, which were united in the war against us, against our terror and our system, are forced against their will to enter into trade agreements with us, knowing full well that in this way they are helping us to strengthen and secure our system.

Vladimir Lenin [i]

In designing their theater nuclear offensive, the Soviets have selected, as a point of departure, one of the simpler approaches – a nuclear fire barrage followed by a basically conventional exploitation. They believe that the first nuclear strike may be decisive in determining who wins the war.

Joseph D. Douglass, Jr. [ii]

When the time is ripe, we will strike, comrade. In one day we will wipe out all the American war bases from Spain to Alaska. And on the very same day, the one hundred most important Americans will die. Some of them will be poisoned, some crushed under falling rocks, some in ‘unavoidable’ automobile accidents. The sooner these American exploiters, these bloodsuckers of the poor are liquidated, the better.

General Sascha Korotkov [iii]

The future founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Ulyanov [Lenin], was born on 22 April 1870. He had an older brother and sister, named Alexander and Anna. (He also had four younger siblings.) They were good children. “Vladimir, on the other hand, was an unruly, noisy child, given to tantrums,” noted biographer Robert Payne. “He learned to walk late, and in the first months of walking he was always falling down and screaming…. His tantrums were sometimes violent, and they were sometimes accompanied by acts of cruelty. His sister Anna remembered that he was always breaking his toys.”[iv] One day little Volodya [Vladimir] was given a caged bird as a pet. He let it die. Later in life, Volodya grew up to let millions of people die. Worse yet, he ordered thousands of executions and mass killings. Today Vladimir Lenin lies in state, at the center of Moscow, in a pyramid-shaped mausoleum.[v] His diminutive namesake, Vladimir Putin, rules Russia, keeping communism’s murderous traditions alive. Like Vladimir Lenin, Vladimir Putin falls down, has tantrums, and breaks his own toys (i.e., his own tanks, artillery, helicopters). But little Volodya Putin has not broken all his toys. In fact, he has not touched his nuclear toys. But he is eyeing them.

Palestine, Disinformation and Conspiracy Theory: Discussions with Jimmy, Alex, and Nevin

Moscow’s major aim at this point in history is to whitewash Communism and recycle its image in the West. The Soviet target, Western public opinion, must be made to forget that Communism and its leaders are a danger to the world.

Natalie Grant

When we look at the communist movement, and the disinformation it deploys, we should keep three things in mind: (1) There are the old communist promises of a bright socialist future, which “useful idiots” still believe in; (2) there are bogus conspiracy theories that divert attention away from the communist threat, claiming that capitalists (or Jews, or Satanists) are running the world and that communism is simply a capitalist (or Jewish) trick; and (3) there is this world of trivia, this world of secondary subjects, that could be used to blot out the sun. And there you are, sitting in the dark.

Totalitarian Subversion, Part II: Laying Bare the Unreason of the World {With Assorted Videos}

The power struggle of states is not guided by blind destiny; rather, it lays bare the reason of the world.

Eric Voegelin [i]

Destiny is linked to truth and falsehood in the following way: If we adopt truth, we tend to prosper. If our creed is a lie, we are going to suffer. If we adopt the lies of socialism and communism, which exist everywhere today under various guises (environmentalist, antiracist, feminist, etc.), there is going to be great suffering. It is a fateful choice – because those who are leading us into socialism and communism are blind; and those who fail to see this fateful choice are also blind. Therefore, if history has taken a wrong turn, it is not because destiny is blind. It is because men are blind.

Week’s Discussions: With Jimmy From Brooklyn, Alex and Nevin

I have been involved in researching a long essay for the last three weeks. It is slow-going because the overall situation is so complicated. Without going into the details, which are fascinating, the world is moving toward an abyss. The leaders, West and East, do not seem to understand each other. Russia’s leaders seem to be the most disconnected from reality. In general, Russia continues to lose the war in Ukraine, and the situation is getting worse. Yet the Russian government, rightly expecting the West will rescue them by cutting off Ukraine’s weapons, do not seem to realize how rapidly the Russian Army is unraveling. Military experts are astonished that Ukraine’s careful attacks are, contrary to expectations, causing heavy casualties on the Russian defenders. This is hard to account for, because defense supposedly costs fewer lives. But not in the Russian Army. Now the Russians are feeding their elite paratroops into the meatgrinder. One analyst, whose coverage of the fighting has been superior to all others, wonders if the Russian line is going to collapse before the Russian agents in the West can cut off Ukraine’s supplies. Certainly, even if America stops sending support to Ukraine, the Ukrainians are going to continue to fight and Russians will die in gross disproportion. It is believed, by the most reliable analysts, that Russia has now suffered a half million casualties in the war. This is staggering, even as the Russian economic situation goes from bad to worse. Something is going to happen here. And recent Russian offensive moves, ended in the destruction of hundreds of vehicles and thousands of dead soldiers. Worse and worse for Moscow. To paint this picture, we have to come to terms with what autocratic rule does to people. This dishonesty, the detachment from reality, the falsifying of fact — all sets the society up for calamity. America and the West have their own problems with this, but Russia is the Motherland of Socialism, the Motherland of lies. What happens when the situation gets desperate for Moscow?

My latest talk with Jimmy. Apologies to those were were kept awake. We did finish before 8:30 pm.

The Middle East As Stew Pot: Conversations with Jimmy, Seth and Alex

Should Iraq resort to using chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons, be found supporting terrorist acts against the US or coalition partners anywhere in the world, or destroy Kuwait’s oil fields, it shall become an explicit objective of the United States to replace the current leadership of Iraq….

National Security Directive 54, 15 January 1991

Smoke from the burning oil wells was first visible from satellite images as early as February 8, 1991. Satellite images showed the number of oil fires peaked between February 22-24, 1991. In total, Iraq ignited or damaged more than 750 of Kuwaits’s 943 oil wells….

A Chronology of Events

GORBACHEV: I know you were worried that, if Saddam simply withdraws, he would still have significant potential and therefore play a destabilizing role. This is no longer relevant. Besides, then we would be able to continue our cooperation in the UN Security Council framework to implement the idea we discussed: to create new security structures in the Middle East, to solve the numerous problems of that region

G.H.W. BUSH: Let me give you a detailed answer. First, we have no reasons to believe he [Saddam] will agree to your proposal. Second, it is not correct that the military potential which has enabled him to behave so insolently in the region no longer exists. A substantial part of his military potential is still there, and this would enable him to go on threatening his neighbors. The question of the right time to stop the military action should be considered carefully. Wouldn’t that make him look like a hero in the Middle East? Is it the right time now, when he has just attacked Israel, when he continues using Scud missiles, and his Republican Guard is still at his disposal? It seems to me that a cease-fire in the present situation would let him emerge victorious from under the ruins of defeat.

Gorbachev-Bush Telephone call, 18 January 1991

In Pavel Stroilov’s book, Behind the Desert Storm, we see why the first Gulf War led to the Second Gulf War, which led to further troubles and today’s eruption against Israel. Always, Moscow has played an important role. About the chicanery involved in the First Gulf War, Pavel Stroilov wrote, “Again and again, as if all these decades never happened, they give us all this nonsense about the legacy of colonialism, about the centrality of the Palestinian problem….” The real Middle East problem today, said Stroilov, is the work of Red Arabs and their Islamist partners. The Middle East has been Moscow’s nasty stew pot. The Kremlin’s surrogates in the region have always kept the pot simmering so that things can be brought to a boil when necessary.

Conversations with Nevin, Jimmy, and Alex Benesch

…modern combat can be characterized as nuclear combat. Of course, this does not repudiate its combined arms character but only stresses the decisive role of nuclear weapons in battle and the special features of the battle itself which follow therefrom. The actions of the troops on the battle are coordinated first of all with the nuclear strikes and are directed toward the exploitation of their results.

A.A. Sidorenko

The Russian leaders go to war and destroy cities, kidnap children, massacre civilians, slaughter their own soldiers in frontal assaults. The evil of the process mirrors the leaders themselves. The great game, which is a horrible game, continues….

On Anticommunism and the Subversion Game: Two Conversations

Once collective leadership had been established in the Soviet Union and reaffirmed in the Chinese party in 1959-60, factionalism lost its meaning. There could no longer be actual groups of Stalinists, neo-Stalinists, Khrushchevites, or Maoists, but such groups could be invented if required by policy considerations.

Anatoliy Golitsyn, [NLFO, p. 75]

On Saturday I spoke with German researcher Alex Benesch about his analysis of Moscow’s two-sided strategy of manipulating the right and left simultaneously (entailing “contradictions”). This is something I have touched on in the past, but Alex has gone deeper into this. He wonders if there may be a secret network of agents in Europe, belonging to old aristocratic families, engaged in a deception of their own. Can this explain Moscow’s setbacks in 1990 when Germany was united earlier than the Soviet plan called for, with disastrous effects on the Soviet military? Thirty years after the “fall of the Soviet Union” Moscow invades Ukraine, initiating what is explanable only as a Soviet Civil War; that is, an overt attempt to put the Soviet Humpty-Dumpty back together. We ask, once more, why is this effort running into such difficulties? Why has Europe rallied to Ukraine in ways that are quite unexpected? In this context, how will Moscow’s manipulation of the right and left, out of different narratives, work in terms of their usual “scissors” strategy? Are Moscow’s real collaborators (in the Biden White House and Democratic Party) luring the right into apparent collaboration with Russia to entrap them with a “MAGA is a Russian-controlled subversive movement” narrative in the event the war widens? I raise the issue of the moral and intellectual disintegration of Moscow’s elite, and the elite subversives in Washington. My point: Anyone who engages in such deception operations hurt themselves in unseen ways. Here is the audio:

On Sunday I had a conversation with Jimmy from Brooklyn regarding communist subversion and deception. He had some great insights from decades of infiltrating the communist movement himself.

The Totalitarian Takeover, Part I {With Assorted Videos}

There is no right to be stupid. It is not one of the basic rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.

Eric Voegelin

What is this business of totalitarians taking over the world? Who are they? Why do they do it? Eric Voegelin says totalitarians are alienated people. A psychologist, who authored a book titled Political Ponerology, says that abnormal psychology is behind it. There is merit in many of these observations. We are dealing with an outbreak of abnormal personalities in the political sphere; that is, people who should never be allowed near political power. And yet, they are drawn to it and nobody stands in their way. Once upon a time abnormal people were persecuted. Today they are “mainstreamed” and celebrated, even elevated. Thus we find strange personalities ascending to power on every side.

Socialist Victory and the Bungle Factor: Is Putin Worthy of Stalin?

The network of people disinforming Western opinion is very extensive. It includes the press of different and frequently divergent political orientations.

Jozef Mackiewicz

In his book, Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy, Joseph Schumpeter explained what actually happened in World War II. He said, people “will have to realize that what has occurred amounts to a surrender not much less complete than might have been expected from a military victory of Russia over her two chief allies.” Those allies, of course, were America and Great Britain. Schumpeter went on to attribute Moscow’s victory in 1945 to Joseph Stalin’s political genius. “Following events from that first master stroke — the ‘understanding’ with Germany — we behold a master’s handiwork. It is true that Stalin never encountered a man of comparable ability.” [1]

The books he carried were all thick and weighty, works worthy of an intellectual leftist – H.G. Wells, Marx, Marx and Engels, George Bernard Shaw. I cannot recall exactly. Clearly, Lee wanted it known that he did not waste time on light reading.

President Lyndon Johnson [ii]  

What we see today is a kind of madness, a kind of intellectual breakdown, appearing on all sides. In Tucker Carlson’s interview with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., we encountered this breakdown in the unthinking conspiracism of a Democratic presidential candidate. And now, with the Republican presidential debate of last Wednesday, we saw evidence of a breakdown on the Republican side. At the same time, President Trump’s conversation with Carlson (broadcast on Wednesday) struck a different note. Trump appeared to be sharp, sane, and sensible – even though his allegations of election fraud in 2020 are believed by less than one in three voters.

Monsters and Their Monstrous Nothings, Part I


The best religion is communism.

Lee Harvey Oswald [i]

Socialism is a fake, a comedy, a phantom, and a blackmail.

Benito Mussolini
Speech in Milan, 22 July 1919

Our disease is democracy. It is not the skin that festers – our very bones are carious, and their marrow blackens with gangrene.

Fisher Ames

The abnormal man, the damaged man, Lee Harvey Oswald, said, “The best religion is communism.” The disillusioned communist-turned-fascist, Benito Mussolini, said socialism “is a fake, a comedy, and a blackmail.” More than a century earlier, the great spokesman of the Federalist Party in America, Fisher Ames, said that democracy is “our disease.” All three of these quotes reflect the same problem; namely, our obsession with false ideas and false narratives. Soren Kierkegaard said that the present age began with understandings and reflections leading to a mighty leveling tendency. “In order that everything should be reduced to the same level,” he wrote, “it is first of all necessary to produce a phantom, its spirit, a monstrous abstraction, an all-embracing something which is nothing, a mirage – and that phantom is the public.”[ii]

On the UFO/UAP Hearings in Congress

Charles Upton [i]

Congressional hearings on the UFO/UAP matter have taken place, and members of Congress have expressed surprise at the bipartisan nature of the hearings. Evidently the prospect of extraterrestrial visitation is the only thing that can bring Americans together.

About the “S” Word: A Polemic

Another anniversary of the 1991 putsch against Gorbachev and our liberation from it. About 800 people went to a celebration organized by the Free Russia Party. I felt no inclination to stop as I drove past the meeting. There is no freedom, so what is there to celebrate? The years since then have been spent bringing back what we had before, only now in an even more twisted form.

Anna Politkovskaya, 21 August 2005

On 2 June 1990 Boris Yeltsin held a press conference on Soviet television. He wanted to discuss the word “socialism.” Yeltsin said, “I think that the socialist nature, or the level and share of society’s socialist nature does not depend on the number of times the word ‘socialism’ is pronounced….” Yeltsin was at pains to explain that words were not everything. Some words, like the “s” word, were going to disappear. Russia was embarking on a very special game, a very special manuever. Yeltsin continued, “That is why the absence of the word ‘socialism’ in my speech does not in any way show that I altogether reject this idea. We simply have to give it a different sense. That’s the crux of the matter – [giving the word] a different sense, a different model. I will not depend on the name.”

In his book, The Harvest of Sorrow, historian Robert Conquest outlined the genocide Moscow’s agents carried out against Ukraine in the 1930s. “It certainly appears that a charge of genocide lies against the Soviet Union for its action in the Ukraine,” wrote Conquest. “But whether these events are to be formally defined as genocide is scarcely the point. It would hardly be denied that a crime has been committed against the Ukrainian nation….” (pp. 272)

The Strange Case of a Pentagon Whistleblower

We have what I believe will be, a trail of whistleblowers; good men and women who are now coming forward to talk about … a non-human intelligence that has been engaging with this planet for many many years and incredibly, further, that the United States government really is in possession of retrieved non-human technology.

Ross Coulthart

As the world teeters on the edge of nuclear war in Eastern Europe, an important news story has been eclipsed. There has been a “whistleblower” named David Grusch, a former U.S. Air Force intelligence official, who says that the U.S. Government has a UFO recovery program and is in possession of “non-human” aerial vehicles as well as “dead pilots.” As confirmed by Senator Marco Rubio, David Grusch is the first government official to avail himself of the correct whistleblower procedure for triggering congressional oversight on the issue of UAP/UFOs.

Yuri’s Insight: A Nuclear Premonition

Whether Ukraine’s state officials and oligarchs always deserve our sympathy, we leave for the reader to decide — though as a nation Ukrainians have been beyond heroic. Even eastern Ukraine, its most Russian-friendly part, was not as easily cowed by Putin as Russia’s population is (and was) by the Kremlin.

Yuri Felshtinsky and Michael Stanchev

In their book, Blowing Up Ukraine, Felshtinsky and Stanchev describe the evolution of Ukraine from a corrupt Soviet republic to a nation struggling toward freedom. The authors wrote, “One could dismiss Ukraine’s extraordinary and complex evolution … as ultimately irrelevant to the world at large. But this would be a mistake. We uncover the patterns of behavior with which Russia intends to treat the rest of the world if given the chance. In addition, we show how over two decades of mounting frustration, Putin has become obsessed with Ukraine — comparable with Stalin’s mania about Poland.”

The Mutiny in Russia

This is a stab in the back.

Vladimir Putin

In a speech earlier today, Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged that a mutiny was underway against the Russian state. He described it “as an attempt to subvert us from the inside.” He called it “treason in the face of those who are fighting on the front.” For many Russians, however, the real treason is that committed by Vladimir Putin, who lied to the Russian people about Ukraine needing to be liberated from NATO-controlled Nazis. The real treason happened when Putin, contrary to international law, committed Russia’s armed forces to an appalling act of military aggression that has resulted in hundreds of thousands of Russian dead and wounded. Whole cities and towns have been reduced to rubble because of an imaginary threat from imaginary Nazis. The mutiny of which Putin spoke, was undertaken by Mr. Prigozhin of the Wagner Group (mercenaries fighting under the Russian flag). According to Prigozhin, Russia is bombing Ukrainian civilians. According to Prigozhin, all of Putin’s justifications for the war are lies.

James Lindsay [ii]

In his series, The Marxist Roots of DEI [Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion], James Lindsay says his aim is to develop a “capacity for discernment” in his listeners. You must be able to look at a document, a news story, a television episode, your kid’s homework, “and discern where you’re seeing something that is genuinely dangerous, cloaked in nice-sounding language.” Nowhere are dangerous ideas more pervasive than television entertainment.

The Unraveling of East and West

The minute the KGB was back in power, the idea that the United States was trying to destroy Russia, that America was enemy number one, [comes] back again.

Yevgenia Albats [i]

Imaginative oblivion deforms consciousness. The confusion of language in the wake of the millennial movements is the syndrome of a disorder that has grown in contemporary Western society to the proportions of an established … state of unconsciousness – not to forget the global extension of the disorder [to the East] through the power dynamics of Western ecumenism.

Eric Voegelin [ii]

In both East and West, communist ideas permeate church, state, and culture. Communism is a philosophy, a series of party organizations, a movement, an octopus made up of countless front groups, which has hijacked and perverted political groups across the globe. Intellectually, communism represents a revolt against classical wisdom and middle-class values. It was also a revolt against Christian civilization. In the Encyclical of Pope Pius XI on Atheistic Communism we read, “This modern revolution … has actually broken out or threatens everywhere, and it exceeds in amplitude and violence anything yet experienced in the preceding persecutions launched against the Church. Entire peoples find themselves in danger….”[iii]

A Lecture on 9/11 Truth

A conspiracy theory offers an explanation of past, ongoing, or future events or circumstances that cites as the main casual factor a small group of powerful persons, the conspirators, acting in secret for their own benefit and against the common good.

Prof. Brian Wagner

Philosophy Professor Brian Wagner of Rock Valley College, in Rockford, Illinois, has given a remarkable lecture that deserves wider attention. His First Tuesday lecture, “Dissecting 9/11 Conspriacy Theories,” delivered 15 September 2021, represents a serious challenge to 9/11 Truther claims. Wagner has done a lot of homework. Here is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject in video form. Because Truther claims continually come up on this website, this video is the perfect eye-opening look at how analysis of such things should be done. Please watch this carefully, with an open mind.

I’ve been working with people in Russia, in the media, and elsewhere, who love America. We do not have enemies in Russia or Iran, despite the attempt to try and say that they are all terrorists. They are not. Iran has the greatest number of Christians that are coming to the surface.

Scott Bennett [i]

Not being a crackpot, in a world of crackpots, is just another way of being cracked. At least, that is how one is made to feel when crazy talk is given credence; for those who lend an ear to madness would make sanity trade places with madness. In Andrew Lobaczewski’s book, Political Ponerology, we read about the abnormal personalities who thrive in totalitarian movements. “Psychopathic individuals generally stay away from social organizations characterized by reason and ethical discipline,” noted Lobaczewski. “After all, such organizations are created by that other world of normal people so foreign to them.” But once inappropriate passions attach to political discourse, once darker motives appear, the psychopath perceives “this fact with almost infallible sensitivity: a circle has been created wherein they can hide their failings and psychological differentness, find their modus vivendi, and maybe even realize their youthful Utopian dream of a world where they are in power….”[ii]

Russian and Chinese Strategy: Rock, Paper, Nukes

…the coordinated duality of Soviet and Chinese policies offers a number of advantages for communist strategy. It enables the communist bloc to retain the initiative, to open up new possibilities for maneuver, and to induce erroneous responses from its opponents. Where there are conflicts in the outside world, it enables the two communist partners, by taking opposite sides, to strengthen communist influence simultaneously over both parties to the dispute.”

Anatoly Golitsyn[i]

KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn, who defected from the Soviet Union in December 1961, successfully predicted the rise of Gorbachev and a false Soviet liberalization that would weaken the West’s strategic posture. He even predicted that the Communist Party would give up its monopoly of power in Russia. The Cold War, in effect, would be over. Only the whole thing, he said, would be a deception. It was designed so that the West would relax its guard. The Chinese and Russians – together with their communist allies around the world – would then be better positioned to infiltrate the West’s core institutions. Moscow and Beijing would also gain access to Western technology for military modernization. At the same time, the West would stop making nuclear weapons. And this is exactly what happened after 1991.

Speculative Despair … and the Extraterrestrial Apocalypse, Continued, Part II

Speculatively, we are supposed to look away from the single individual; therefore, speculatively, we can speak only superficially about sin. The dialectic of sin is diametrically contrary to that of speculation.

Søren Kierkegaard [1]

In the same year that Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published their Communist Manifesto (1848), Søren Kierkegaard published his remarkable book, The Sickness Unto Death. Part II of that book was titled, “Despair is sin.” If we indulge in diversionary speculations, said Kierkegaard, instead of living in faith, we fall into a labyrinth in which one error follows another.[2] Speculations founded on despair are often used to justify spiritual rebellion, leading to violence and crime. Such speculations ignore that every individual is responsible before God. In their eagerness for change (as if through change they could escape from themselves), people tend to divert attention from the central questions of life; namely, what is good and what is true? (Signifying an obligation.)

Speculative Despair, Communist Deception, and the Extraterrestrial Apocalypse, Part I

I begin with the notion of some one other world, from which objects and substances have fallen to this earth; which had, or which, to less degree, has a tutelary interest in this earth; which is now attempting to communicate with this earth – modifying, because of data which will pile up later, into acceptance that some other world is not attempting but has been, for centuries, in communication with a sect, perhaps, or a secret society, or certain esoteric ones of this earth’s inhabitants.

Charles Fort, 1919 [i]

The Jinn do not transcend space and time, but rather exist in a different quality of space and time than we do…. But it is clear that they can fascinate and/or terrify with their own multidimensional reality, which we can never fully make our own in this life … [distracting] us from our own proper relationship with space-time, and thus from the unique and specifically human responsibilities God has provided us with as ways to know him.

Charles Upton [ii]

The UFO phenomenon is a mystery. There are brilliant books on this subject, such as the works of scientist Jacques Vallée; but after sixty years of painstaking research, Vallée still does not know what UFOs are. It is a complex subject – loaded with conspiracy allegations, conspiracy theories, actual conspiracies, the occult (including sorcerers who summon entities),[iii] metaphysical speculations, physics, and mind-boggling stories of advanced technologies held in secret.

Last February 15 Havana’s communist government thanked the Russian government for donating 25,000 tons of wheat to Cuba. Foreign Trade Minister Ana Teresita Gonzalez spoke of “the many actions of this type” carried out by Moscow.[iii] For example, in April 2022, the Russian government donated nearly 20,000 tons of wheat to communist Cuba.[iv] Meanwhile, communist North Korea has been hiding its ammunition shipments to Russia, in support of Putin’s war in Ukraine.[v] Even more curious, Russia is aligned with communist Vietnam,[vi] has sent troops to Venezuela in support of communist dictator Nicolás Maduro,[vii] has been invited by another communist dictator, Daniel Ortega, to send troops to Nicaragua,[viii] and has conducted joint military exercises with South Africa (where the ruling ANC has long been a front for the Communist Party of South Africa).[ix] Even more significant, however, is the emerging alliance between Russia and communist China. Shortly before Russia launched its all-out invasion of Ukraine, communist China made a joint declaration with Russia about a “new era” under a new global order. In effect, the world’s most populous communist country has aligned itself with the Russian Federation, a country that supposedly laid aside its communist system in December 1991 in favor of market reforms and democracy. Yet in the end, President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Xi Jinping of China, both say that the friendship between their two countries “has no limits.”[x]

The Strategic Context: Plus, A Censored Video Podcast

According to reports, during the most difficult period of the Sino-US trade war, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) considered the use of viral weapons to disrupt the United States.

The Soviet Party fell apart because no one had the balls to keep it together.

Xi Jinping, to CCP leaders in 2012


President Donald Trump’s push-back against China’s exploitive trade practices from 2017-2019 was not acceptable to Beijing. Trump upset China’s play for economic dominance. Look what followed: — a global pandemic out of China, lockdowns of citizens, an experimental vaccine pushed on hundreds of millions of people, Western markets crashing, countries paralyzed with fear, massive economic dislocations, banks ready to fail, free societies turning to government controls, medical “martial law,” and a Russian invasion of Ukraine. All these events must be seen in context, as part of a sequence. It is a sequence best understood with reference to the defector literature (and testimony) of Anatoliy Golitsyn, Jan Sejna, Viktor Suvorov, and Stanislav Lunev. The main point of these authors is that Russia did not undergo a fundamental change after the fall of the Soviet Union. Golitsyn and Sejna refered to a “long range” communist bloc plan for collapsing the Warsaw Pact. Golitsyn, as well as Lunev, said that Russia and China were in a solid, long-term alliance that was kept hidden from the West. At some future date, the plan was, that Russia and China would confront the West. And that is what is happening now.

The Politics of Biological Warfare and the Inversion of Blame, Part II

In March [2021] we saw 84% excess mortality into Fall 2021, and though we already knew our analysis was solid, here it was verified by SOA [Society of Actuaries Research Institute]. It is undeniably clear that an event occurred in the Third Quarter of 2021, the same period that vaccine mandates were ordered by the Biden Administration, and enforced by corporate America.

Edward Dowd [1]

Our food, drug, and cosmetic industries are all likely sabotage victims. The production processes of all are vulnerable to the introduction of chemical and biological agents, and the resultant contaminated products could be widely distributed.”

Brigadier General J.H. Rothschild [2]

A statistical anomaly was discovered in 2021, after the United States began mass vaccinations in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. People began to die from “cause unknown.”[3] Of course, an intelligent observer might guess the cause. German-based scientists Karina Reiss and Sucharit Bhakdi, writing in 2020, said, “Experts around the world express their concerns and warn of rushed COVID-19 vaccines without sufficient safety guarantees.”[4] With regard to the proposed mRNA vaccines, Reiss and Bhakdi wrote, “No gene-based vaccine[5] has ever received approval for human use, and the present coronavirus vaccines have not undergone preclinical testing as is normally required by international regulations.”[6] What a perfect situation, from the perspective of Brig. Gen. Rothschild’s admonition, for an enemy to introduce a contaminant – a “secret sauce,” if you will – into an already inadvisable product that is being pushed into everyone’s arm. If harm is done, guess who will be blamed?

Monstrous Crimes of the Inside-Out and Backward

Nobody now disputed that what occurred was a monstrous crime, but – committed by whom? Who is guilty? How did it happen that nobody saw this sooner? You will not find the guilty. One lot will insist that they knew nothing; another, that they were afraid; others still, that they believed.

General Laura Richardson, with four stars, runs the U.S. Southern Command. Last week she said that the United States Government had asked several Latin American nations – including Venezuela and Cuba – to donate their Russian-made military equipment to Ukraine. The Pentagon has, according to Richardson, offered to give U.S military equipment in exchange for Russian-made equipment “if those countries want to donate to Ukraine.” The nine countries in Latin America are, “Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and Venezuela.”

Conversation With Piero San Giorgio: A Historical Overview

The very possibility that there are timeless truths is a reproach to the life of laxness and indifference that modern egotism encourages.

Richard M. Weaver

The atomized individual, cut off from his ancestors and his posterity, does not really see himself. And since he does not see himself, he cannot know himself. His education encourages him to specialize; that is, to know more and more about less and less. He sees history as a fragmented jumble of personalities and incidents which cannot be understood and probably should be ignored. He lacks the intellectual tools to see the patterns that are unfolding directly in front of him.

Ideology, Subversion, and the Fall of Brazil: Not With a Bang

It was while I was going over these stories that I realized for the first time just how important a part of the communist movement in America the teachers were. They touched practically every phase of Party work. They were not used only as teachers in Party education, where they gave their services free of charge, but in the summer they traveled and visited Party figures in other countries. Most of them were an idealistic, selfless lot who manned the front committees and were the backbone of the Party’s strength in the labor Party and later in the Progressive Party. Even in the inner Party apparatus they performed invaluable services.

Bella Dodd[i]

Brazil is falling to the communists. America is only a few steps behind. Here is the process: You capture the public schools. You capture the colleges. You indoctrinate and capture the elite. At the same time, you infiltrate the seminaries and corrupt the churches. You take over the tax-exempt foundations. You enter the intelligence community, the government, and the media. You get control of the money spigot. You make and break careers. You finance false fronts. You shape the larger culture. You conquer society itself. There is one thing you must be careful of, however. When your tyranny becomes effective, and society collapses under your destructive policies, and freedom evaporates, the masses will come after you with their guns (if they have any). Perhaps they will come after you with their bare hands. So, it is advisable that you misdirect the masses. You must get them to blame someone else for your crimes. Even more to the point, if you decide to devastate society with a biological attack, you must convince your victims that someone else was behind it. You must maintain your innocence to the end, even as you are taking over the world in plain view.

Stoking the Fires of Civil War

Suppose the plan is to process millions of people and at some future date trigger those minds at one time? Would we suddenly have a world of saints or a world of armed maniacs shooting at one another from bell towers?

John A. Keel[i]

One can detect signs of a suicidal impulse; one feels at times that the modern world is calling for madder music and for stronger wine, is craving some delirium which will take it completely away from reality. One is made to think of Kierkegaard’s figure of spectators in the theater, who applaud the announcement and repeated announcement that the building is on fire.

Richard M. Weaver[ii]

It is January 2023. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues, with support flowing in from communist China and North Korea. On the brink of acquiring nuclear weapons, Iran also supports Russia. It is no surprise, therefore, that Cuba and Venezuela are hoping for a Russian victory in Ukraine, along with the old/new President of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who ambiguously supports “peace” in Eastern Europe – if only to mask his commitment to the Russia-China bloc.[iii]

No Philosopher Kings

Unless either the philosophers become kings … or those who now are called kings and rulers become philosophers … there will be no rest from evil … nor, I believe, for the human race either. And not until that happens, will this politeia of ours have a measure of growth and see the light of the sun.

Socrates [i]

Are we ruled by wise men or fools? Which country has a philosopher as head of state? France, perhaps? When French President Emmanuel Macron conducted an eight-hour “Great Debate of Ideas” with dozens of academics, people were left wondering. Should we take him seriously? Or is Emmanuel Macron merely an intellectual posing as a philosopher? Rather than striking a pose, a philosopher is concerned with deeper truths while the politician shaves the truth for the sake of political expediency. As Machiavelli might say, deceit is the politician’s obligation if he hopes to succeed. This is how ambitious politicians become slaves to untruth – like the criminal who cannot stop adding to his crimes because a turn toward honesty would prove fatal. In brief, the politician who serves expediency might imagine himself to be powerful and free. Yet he becomes trapped by his own expedient lies.

EC: So the cheating in Brazil was very obvious, poorly done. They do not even pretend to follow the Constitution. The Supreme Court of Brazil is a disgrace. Lula is a criminal. It is hard to count the number of crimes he has committed. Just like the dictators of South America of the 1950s and 60s, we are looking to the military to fix the situation. Probably they will do that. But I do not know when or how. I do not know if they are going to allow Lula to become president.

Olavo’s Aristotle: Plus Interview with Man in America

People get into this condition [i.e., ignorance] through their own fault, by the slackness of their lives; i.e., they make themselves unjust or licentious by behaving dishonestly or spending their time in drinking and other forms of dissipation; for in every sphere of conduct people develop qualities corresponding to the activities they pursue.”

Aristotle [i]

Plato and Aristotle were philosophers of Classical antiquity. Those who can read these ancient philosophers in the original Greek are better able to understand the fundamentals of art and science. To understand Plato and Aristotle is to hold a decisive intellectual advantage in all forms of discourse. The value of the ancients is hard to explain to the desiccated modern mind – which is often unable to place facts in their proper context. Modern life is very busy, very distracted. Modern man is trapped in the news cycle, unable to synthesize or unify his knowledge. The ancient science of seeing, weighing, and ordering has largely been lost to us. A modern thinker with access to the ancients, however, is like a man looking down from the top of a mountain. Those who know nothing of the ancients, having journalistic predilections, are only looking down from the foothills. It never occurs to them that there is a mountain to climb. Unlike his journalistic critics, Brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho is someone who climbed that mountain.

Our Schizoid Ochlocracy

The nominalism of a dogma that has separated from experience … has become the dominant form of the West because it was, beginning with the eighteenth century, adopted as the intellectual form of ideologizing.

Eric Voegelin [i]

The practical result of nominalist philosophy is to banish the reality which is perceived by the intellect and to posit as reality that which is perceived by the senses. With this change in the affirmation of what is real, the whole orientation of culture takes a turn….

Richard Weaver [ii]

Psychopathic individuals generally stay away from social organizations characterized by reason and ethical discipline.”

Andrew M. Lobaczewski

To paraphrase Richard Weaver, this is another essay about the dissolution of the West. It is an account of dissolution not based on analogy but on psychiatry and philosophy. It argues that we have given in to the defective thinking of defective people in an Age of Ideology; that is, an age of political lying. The result is an ochlocracy[iii] cut into two warring halves.[iv]

Esoteric Leninism

…the USSR was designed and developed as (1) a resource base for the world revolution and (2) its military mobilization apparatus. And, if we consider its subsequent history on the basis of these goals and objectives, then all the actions of the Soviet authorities in the 1920s-50s, which sometimes seem insane, acquire an exhaustive logical explanation….

Dmitri Savvin [i]

Marxism-Leninism in Russia can best be understood as having an exoteric and esoteric side. The exoteric Marxism-Leninism was for export. The esoteric was what the leaders of the regime actually thought and how they operated. [2] Because the regime did not work so well in economic terms, and they were falling behind in technology, they initiated a New Economic Policy under Gorbachev along the lines set down by Lenin in 1922. They were compelled, for various practical reasons, to give up their exoteric Marxism-Leninism in 1991. Only a stupid minority believed that nonsense anyway, and what good are stupid people? Of course, the soft West was full of people who were willing to believe in that sort of thing. After all, they had never lived under it. And Moscow was sure to take advantage of them as before. By promoting feminism and abortion, to kill population growth, economic arguments could be made for importing Muslims and Africans to Europe. This would disorganize the West and bring ruinous consequences in the long term. Add global warming “science,” and naïve policies regarding China, and the West would be doomed to its own existential crisis. At the same time, the special services’  infiltration of Europe and America would continue at an accelerated pace.

Strategic Culture and the Art of Seeing

In reality, the main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion … only about 15 percent of time, money, and manpower is spent on espionage as such. The other 85 percent is [engaged in] a slow process which we call … ideological subversion or active measures…. What it basically means is, to change the perception of reality of every American to such an extent, that despite the abundance of information, no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves….

Yuri Bezmenov [i]

…the great majority of Americans could be said to represent a refutation on a large scale of the Cartesian principle, ‘Cogito ergo sum’; they ‘do not think and are.’ Better yet, in many cases they are dangerous individuals and in several instances their primitivism goes way beyond the Slavic primitivism of ‘homo sovieticus.’

Julius Evola [ii]

Anti-Americanism includes more than hatred of the American elite. It includes hatred of the American people as a whole. The reason for paying attention to enemies – to the superior minds in an enemy camp – is to know ourselves through the eyes of that enemy. Having an enemy, or a friend, is an unappreciated spiritual gift. We always have something to learn about ourselves from friends and enemies; from those who hate us, and those who love us; for hatred will always find our faults, as love will find our virtues. In America’s case there is a particularly dangerous fault crying out for correction. That fault is the superficiality of our intellectual culture, particularly our strategic culture.

We have several disturbing data points emerging in connection with the Ukraine War.

Point 1: On 23 September Polish teachers in Warsaw were asked to hand out iodine anti-radiation pills to students in case of emergency. In connection with this, the Polish Interior Ministry admitted that potassium iodide pills had been sent to regional fire departments after “media reports of fighting near the Zaprozhye Nuclear Power Plant” in southern Ukraine. Yet, the threat to the power plant has been alleged for months. Why send out these pills now?

Macron and Marxism in France: A Discussion with Jean Robin

The general horizon of the era is communist. And this communism will have to be constructed on the basis of society’s self-organizing capacities….

Bruno Bosteels, “The Actuality of Communism”

As far as the communist idea is concerned, anybody who forgets that there are two truths in communism is likely to be deceived. The first ‘esoteric’ truth has a dogmatic and immutable character; it corresponds to the basic tenets of the revolution and is formulated in the writings and in the directives of the early Bolshevik period. The second is a changeable and ‘realistic’ truth, which is forged case by case, often in apparent contrast with the first truth, and characterized by eventual compromises with the ideas of the ‘bourgeois’ world…. The varieties of this second truth are usually set aside as soon as they have achieved their tactical objective; they are mere instruments at the service of the first truth. Therefore, those who would fall into this trap and believe that Bolshevism is a thing of the past, that it has evolved and that it is going to take on normal forms of government and international relations, are indeed extremely naive.

Otto von Bismarck

In the Russian-occupied oblasts of Ukraine, the voting is over. According to Russian officials, 95 percent of the voters want to be Russian. It seems that the people of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk and Donetsk loved being invaded by Russia so much, they want to be annexed as well. It hardly matters that most of these people are non-Russian. The benefits of Russian citizenship are so appealing and so chocolate-filled, they could not resist. Everyone in Southwest Ukraine just loved how the Russians flattened the city of Mariupol. They admired so much the Russian artillerymen who attacked hospitals and apartment buildings. And the biggest bonus of all: A real KGB-man is now their president, instead of that Jewish comedian in Kiev.

The Totalitarian Trajectory: And Man in American Interview

A further reason for my hatred of National Socialism and other ideologies is quite a primitive one. I have an aversion to killing people for the fun of it. What the fun is, I did not quite understand at the time, but in the intervening years the ample exploration of revolutionary consciousness has cast some light on this matter. The fun consists in gaining a pseudo-identity through asserting one’s power, optimally by killing somebody – a pseudo-identity that serves as a substitute for the human self that has been lost.

Eric Voegelin[i]

The pseudo-identity of a totalitarian dictator relies on pseudo-ideas. And what are pseudo-ideas? They are often ideas about the victim status of some group – based on sex, race, nation, or class. We hear these themes regularly; for example, that women or transgenders are oppressed, that non-whites are oppressed, that the poor are oppressed by the rich. Here is a victimology that promotes mass murder by encouraging despair. It is a despair that justifies “killing people for the fun of it.” The National Socialists said Germany was the victim and blamed the Jews. The neo-Marxists say people of color are victims and blame white racism. The old-line Marxists say the workers are victims and blame the bourgeoisie. The dictator states, who also see themselves as victims, blame America and/or NATO. In its current war against Ukraine, the Kremlin uses a confused mix of all-the-above, citing Ukraine as a U.S./NATO/Nazi conspiracy under Ukraine’s Jewish president, who is backed by Jewish oligarchs. Here we have an “all-the-above” goulash of popular resentments to justify Russia’s war of aggression. This justification differs markedly from the usual totalitarian demagogy. It partakes of an intellectual incoherency and rhetorical carelessness suggestive of mental disintegration. Who would have guessed? Russia’s regime of banal mediocrities cannot be bothered to make their lies credible. They no longer possess the intellectual wherewithal of the early Bolsheviks. The elder Soviet statesman laid out a long-range strategy. But now it seems, the post-Soviet generation cannot think for themselves. When the old strategy began to fail, they improvised. It was then, and only then, that the mediocrity of the nomenklatura showed itself. The Russian and Chinese governments are failing their people. Russian military setbacks in Ukraine and a financial meltdown in China follow.

Defeatism and Revolutionary Strategy

I would say another ten days it should be completely over.

Col. Douglas Macgregor,
on day 9 of the war in Ukraine [i]

The term defeatism is commonly used in politics as a descriptor for an ideological stance that considers co-operation with the opposition party. In the military context, in wartime, and especially at the front, defeatism is synonymous with treason.


When a strategist can manipulate both sides in a conflict, where each side represents one blade of a scissors, he can use the slicing of the blades to cut his way through anything. The conflict then becomes a controlled experiment in which the contenders, as thesis and antithesis, are used to establish a new thing (i.e., synthesis). In the present case, Russia and China (using their Western agent networks and “useful idiots”) are playing out this strategy. They are attempting to destabilize Europe and America to remake the world. An essential ingredient in this strategy is defeatism.

Eric Voegelin [1]

There have been many pretenders in history, many actors who rule through the mask of personality. These know how to imitate the good, the truthful and the just; yet they are empty shells seeking compensation through a mere increase of political power. They always strive to break down the checks and balances around them. By nature, these pretenders hate those who seek “justice and all things honorable … for their own sake.”[2]

Back to the USSR: Hints from On High

If North Korean volunteers with their artillery systems, wealth of experience with counter battery warfare and large caliber multiple rocket systems, made in North Korea, want to participate in the conflict, well let’s give the green light to their volunteer impulse.

Col. Igor Korotchenko
National Defense Journal

Speaking on Rossiya 1 Television, Col. Igor Korotchenko said that North Korea had offered Russia 100,000 “volunteer” troops to fight in Ukraine. “Pyongyang will be able to transfer its tactical units to Donbas,” he added, describing the North Korean troops as “Resilient and undemanding”; but more important, he said they were “motivated.” What was most curious was the communist phraseology used by Korotchenko to describe this offer of troops from North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un: “If North Korea expresses a desire to meet its international duty to fight against Ukrainian fascism, we should let them.”[i]

According to a Soviet textbook, written by Kharis Sabirov in 1987, we are living in the “period of transition from capitalism to socialism” where socialism is “the first phase of the communist formation….”[ii] The text further explained, “Socialism, which is the negation of capitalism, means a revolutionary restructuring of all spheres of bourgeois society on the principles of scientific communism.” This can only be done in the course of a relentless struggle by stamping out the sources of [bourgeois] might….”[iii] The founder of the Soviet state, Vladimir Lenin, said that revolutionary socialism was international in character. After World War II, the followers of Lenin asserted that the communist parties of all countries have an international duty to unite and assist one another. In doing this, they were following Lenin’s lead. According to Sabirov, Lenin “upheld the principle of internationalism….” In this context, communist North Korea does not simply fight for the national interests of North Korea or of Russia. North Korea is duty-bound to the other socialist countries.

Korotchenko’s allusion to North Korea’s “international duty” is therefore a clue from on high. As he is Putin’s toady, he would never say anything to displease his boss. He would never use Leninist terminology unless that terminology was approved at the highest levels. The obliteration of the Ukrainian state, he has affirmed, is “absolutely healthy.” Why is it healthy? Because it signifies the restoration of the Soviet Union. In past appearances on Russian state TV channel Rossiya 1, Korotchenko outlined an optimistic scenario for “capturing the Baltic countries.”[iv] What possible reason could Russia have for invading three independent NATO countries? What possible reason does Russia have for invading and destroying the country of Ukraine?

Interview With Amber and Joe

The Soviet Strategic Plan for the establishment of their ‘Socialism’ worldwide does, without doubt, exist and, however flexible and pragmatic Soviet policy appears, it is essentially directed towards the achievements of the Plan’s objectives — objectives which have been, are and will remain utterly inimical to and subversive of the freedoms enjoyed by the states of the Western world.

Jan Sejna, Czech communist defector

Sejna made an astonishing statement about the communist bloc in his 1982 book, We Will Bury You. He wrote, “The erosion of N.A.T.O. begun in Phase Two would be completed by the withdrawal of the United States from its commitment to the defence of Europe, and by European hostility to military expenditure, generated by economic recession and fanned by the efforts of the ‘progressive’ movements. To this end we envisaged that it might be necessary to dissolve the Warsaw Pact, in which event we had already prepared a web of bilateral defence arrangements, to be supervised by secret committees of Comecon.” (P. 108) It did not exactly work as planned; but as usual, it partly worked.

Here is my discussion with Amber and Joe on communist strategy, bungling, and things that partly work.

The Inversion of Jordan Peterson

We cannot do without the Russians on our side….

Jordan Peterson [i]

The feigned disunity of the communist world promotes real disunity in the noncommunist world.

Anatoliy Golitsyn [ii]

In his recent video on “Russia vs. Ukraine,” Jordan Peterson said that the West must join with Russia in order to counterbalance China; but, like most influential celebrities, Peterson has yet to realize that China and Russia have been secretly working together for a long time. He has not awakened to the fact that President Richard Nixon’s opening to China was a strategic blunder, and partnering with Russia at the end of the Cold War was also a blunder. Russia is now the world’s leading nuclear power, bar none. China is now the greatest industrial power in the world, bar none. Power of this kind is not attained by accident, but by policy. And the West, led by the United States, facilitated the strengthening of these hostile regimes.

What is Lost?

In the fifth century storm upon storm out of the dark North swept away in a great deluge of barbarism all the civilization of the western half of the Roman Empire. From the Atlantic to Constantinople, and from the Rhine to the Danube to the deserts of Africa, all that was learned and cultivated, all that was artistic and beautiful, was overwhelmed in an avalanche of ruin in which not only the triumphs of architecture, literature, and art, produced by many centuries of a high civilization, but also those who could create such things afresh, were involved in one general destruction.

G.F. Young

Civilization is fragile. It can swept away in a very short time. In fact, Forces are gathering right now to sweep it away. Those who should have been defending our civilization have tended to join with the destroyers: politicians, professors, artists, writers, even scientists. They don’t seem to know what they are doing.

The Gathering Storm: An Overview

It is naïve to assume that the lower depths of the Sovietological inferno – that is, of Western ignorance and ineptitude in the study of totalitarianism – are where they have always been politically. The new strategy of totalitarianism has made havoc of the political spectrum in Western democracies, and the Right today is scarcely less inclined to self-deception than the Left.”

Andrei Navrozov, 1991 [i]

Again and again, we repeat the same mistake. We make unwise bargains with murderous dictators. After all, they changed from bad guys into good guys. They have embraced capitalism and democratic reforms. They are no longer bad. Therefore, we engage with them. We trade with them. We invest in them. We become accessories after the fact, strengthening regimes that routinely murder their own citizens. Eventually, these same regimes point nuclear missiles at us and demand that whole countries be turned over to them.

Twilight of the Magicians: Aleksandr Dugin and the War Against the West

If the Fourth Political Practice is not able to realize the end of times, then it would be invalid. The end of days should come; but it will not come by itself. This is a task, it is not a certainty. It is active metaphysics. It is a practice.”

Aleksandr Dugin, The Fourth Political Theory [i]

The “philosopher” who has done the most to justify Russia’s war against the West is Aleksandr Dugin. He was the first to advocate a Russian invasion of Ukraine. He has also advocated what he calls “the last war of the world-island” – a future conflict against the United States and NATO. His arguments are as fascinating as they are troubling. Disillusioned conservatives in the West imagine that Dugin – like Putin – is a conservative and a Christian. This is the impression he gives, though his writings blend themes of the far left and far right. On close examination his ideas are not something Edmund Burke (the father of conservatism) would have approved.

A Chinese Riddle: War by All Means

The vulnerable features of the imperialist bloc’s economy include high industrial concentration in small areas, dependence on imports, and the vulnerability of communications. The United States depends upon imports of atomic raw materials and of nonferrous and rare metals….

Soviet Military Strategy [i]

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe met on the sidelines of the Shangri-La Dialogue Security Summit in Singapore on Friday. Beijing’s delegation stated that Taiwan is “part of China.” General Wei’s spokesman explained, “The PLA (People’s Liberation Army) would have no choice but to fight at any cost to crush any attempt of Taiwan to be independent. This safeguards our national sovereignty and territorial integrity.” On his part, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin asked China to “refrain from further destabilizing actions.”

Beijing’s War Plan: An Interview with Lude Media

Red Dawn is not really a movie anymore.

Lude Media

I have interviewed Mr. D. Wang and associates, of Lude Media, whose organization acquired a 56-minute recording of a military-civil meeting in Guangdong province tasked with preparing China for war. According to Mr. Wang, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is financing Russia’s war in Ukraine. However, he says, Russia’s best forces are not being used in Ukraine. They have been deployed in the Far East, prepared for action against America.

Nuclear vs. Conventional War

What Jeff says – there’s a lot of truth to what he says – but that doesn’t discount the fact that the Chinese Communist Party has invested in a quite large military conventional force…. I think the Chinese Navy as it is comprised today … and this new national mobilization order … all lead me to conclude they are preparing for a conventional strike to take Taiwan.

Capt. James Fanell

Capt. Fanell’s response to my comments on Bannon’s War Room is a good starting-point for discussing more significant questions of military strategy. My argument goes something like this: The CCP’s investment in a large conventional force does not, in itself, rule out the possibility of an all-arms nuclear war. In fact, China and Russia have built their forces to wage such war. Sixty years ago, Soviet military strategists under Marshal V.D. Sokolovskii devised the theory that nuclear missile weapons are the decisive weapons of the next world war. It is my position that this philosophy and its underlying science of war is operative in China and Russia today.

Russian [or Chinese] Nihilism and the Coming Order, Part II

In history, the Western powers used warships and opium to colonize China. Now the opposite has happened. We will use our open policy, seize the economic crisis in the West as a historical moment, and use effective measures to turn them into Socialist China’s economic and cultural colonies…. Our colonization of these countries is the historical process of communism’s triumph over rotten capitalism. We Chinese communists must shoulder the great historical mission, and use socialism to defeat capitalism, eventually liberating the entire humanity with Communism.

Hu Jintao, 2008 [i]

…as long as we resolve the United States problem at one blow, our domestic problems will all be readily solved. Therefore, our military battle preparation appears to aim at Taiwan but in fact is aimed at the United States, and the preparation is far beyond the scope of attacking aircraft carriers or satellites.

General Chi Haotian, secret speech [ii]

And now comes a strange report out of China. Someone has leaked 56 minutes from a May 14 Provincial CCP meeting in Guangdong. Senior officials from local military and government structures gathered to discuss the Central Committee’s “normal to war transition instructions.” They say that a decision for war has been made. They are calling it “the final war.”[iii] They even speak of a battle for the Taiwan Straits and for the unification of the “motherland.”

On Global Cooling and War

Although the global warming panic of the last twenty years has been a wasteful distraction for humanity, it has, thankfully, served one good purpose…. As a consequence, decades of discovery have been shortened into just a few years. Without the outside interest … humanity would be sleepwalking into the very disruptive cooling that will be caused by Solar Cycles 24 and 25 … to at least 2040.”

David Archibald, The Twilight of Abundance [i]

Last October, CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar wrote a piece titled “Antarctica’s last 6 months were the coldest on record.”[iii] Last February, as if to paint an entirely different picture, The Scientific American offered the headline, “Sea Ice Around Antarctic Reaches a Record Low.” [iv] This, they claimed, was due to a combination of factors – the leading one, of course, was anthropogenic (man-caused) global warming. The article misleads the reader by suggesting the Antarctic is warming. Nothing was said about the actual state of affairs. “At the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, located on the highest plateau of Antarctica, average temperatures from April to September, the continent’s winter months, fell all the way down to 78 degrees below zero Fahrenheit….” [v] And now, last month, temperatures have hit all-time record lows. Last April 14 the world’s lowest temperature was recorded at Vostok Station – 106.2 degrees Farhenheit.[vi]

Carl Schmitt once said, “Tell me who your enemy is, and I will tell you who you are.” Writing before Hitler came to power in Germany, Schmitt noted that Central Europe was living under the eye of the Russians. Schmitt explained, “Their prowess in rationalism and its opposite, as well as their potential for good and evil in orthodoxy, is overwhelming.” He added, “They have realized the union of Socialism and Slavism, which already in 1848 Donoso Cortés said would be the decisive event of the next century.”[ii]

[You will be part of a] new clandestine structure where you will work with the best of the best. Your personnel files will be removed from the archives. No one will ever know your past.

Together with my files, hundreds of others were removed, including that of Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin.

Nikolay (Anonymous KGB Official) [ii]

The criminal nature of Russia’s ruling structures is well known. The criminal nature of Marxism-Leninism is also known, but often ignored. Today the outward trappings of communism in Russia have been papered over – but not entirely. In Red Square, near the Kremlin, we see communist superstar Vladimir Lenin lying in state, after nearly 100 years, mummified in his mausoleum. The music of the Soviet anthem remains, with different words. Instead of “Leningrad” we have “St. Petersburg.” The tricolor flies over the Kremlin instead of the red banner with its hammer and sickle. The Nomenklatura controls the economy, with dolled-up Jewish oligarchs as front men. The KGB and GRU still function as before. The nuclear arsenal and nuclear defenses are new and improved. The army, however, is still the army of Stalin, the Army of 22 June 1941, the Army that lost a quarter of a million men in Finland during the Winter War, etc. And, for reasons unknown, Moscow has attempted to use this army – this Soviet artifact – to force Ukraine back into Moscow’s fold.

Putin’s Russia at the End of Its Tether, Part I

Ukraine is on a razor’s edge. The whole thing hangs in the balance. It could go either way. The Ukrainian elite is rotten. It is psychologically Soviet. Poroschenko is just another apparatchik. He is typical. The problem in Ukraine, like in Russia, is that we don’t have any leaders. It is the same old story, same old biographies. The thinking is not that different from the past.

Vladimir Bukovsky, 16 December 2018 [i]

Please be patient! Ukraine is in the midst of a very real and very significant social revolution. This revolution for many Ukrainians involves a new conceptualization of their values and identities. This is a painful process that needs to occur through collective actions, introspection, and without external intervention.

Mychailo Wynnyckyj [ii]

Bukovsky’s pessimism of 2018 is contradicted by Wynnyckyj’s optimism of 2019. The apparatchiks of Ukraine have been subjected to a genuine revolution, says Wynnyckyj. What was once psychologically Soviet has now become something different, something genuinely Ukrainian. Wynnyckyj argues that the Euromaidan Revolution was a “bourgeois revolution,” profoundly anti-Soviet in character. This revolution, he says, is multi-ethnic rather than chauvinistic. It signifies a renewal of the Ukrainian elite. Because of this renewal, and its implications for Russia, the Kremlin has launched a violent military assault against the Ukrainian people that has lasted nine long weeks.

Will Russia Go Nuclear?

The Russians have taken the European nineteenth century at its word, understood its core ideas and drawn the ultimate conclusions from its cultural premises. We always live in the eye of the more radical brother, who compels us to draw the practical conclusion and pursue it to the end. Altogether … one thing is certain: that the anti-religion of technicity has been put into practice on Russian soil, that there a state arose which is more intensely statist than any ruled by the absolute princes….

Carl Schmitt

A few years ago, there was a slogan going the rounds in Kiev: “We were searching for Europe and we found Ukraine.” Many Ukrainians were sick of Soviet-style kleptocrats governing them with Moscow’s blessing. Better to go with Europe, whatever its flaws. Life as a Kremlin plaything is no life at all. On his side, Putin denied that Ukraine was even a country. “There is no such country,” he said. They cannot be independent of Moscow. Russian propagandists have said that Ukraine is actually two countries: (1) the Ukrainian-speaking west and (2) the Russian-speaking east. Yaroslav Hrytsak, a Ukrainian historian, has called this a heuristic simplification and gross misinterpretation. According to Mychailo Wynnyckyj, “This dichotomous Ukraine never really existed.”[i]

Herman Kahn was controversial. He said things that made his countrymen feel uncomfortable. Kahn, along with rocket scientist Wernher von Braun, allegedly inspired the character “Dr. Strangelove” in the Stanley Kubrick film of the same name. What progressive opinion disliked the most was that Kahn believed in preparing for nuclear war. He argued that even small-cost preparations would produce life-saving results leading to a more rapid post-war recovery. Those whose doctrine was Mutual Assured Destruction did not like the sound of this.

Monseigneur Vigano Justifies Ukraine’s Destruction: An Essay and a Further Conversation With Trevor Loudon

Here one may wonder why, in a situation of blatant violation of human rights by neo-Nazi military forces and paramilitary apparatuses … against the Russian-speaking population of the independent republics, the international community feels obliged to consider the intervention of the Russian Federation worthy of condemnation, and indeed to blame Putin for the violence.

MSGR. Carlo Maria Vigano [i]

…the message from Moscow was direct and unequivocal: the Russian Federation would resort to full-scale war if the ‘rights of Russians and Russian-speakers in Ukraine continued to be threatened.’ No evidence of such rights actually being threatened was ever provided….

Mychailo Wynnyckyj [ii]

I fear that Monseigneur Vigano, otherwise insightful, has fallen into error. He repeats Moscow’s lies without blushing, without suspecting that he is advancing the propaganda of Christendom’s most dangerous enemy. In Vigano’s message for the April 2nd Reawaken America Rally at Salem Oregon, written at the behest of General Michael Flynn, Vigano suggests that President Putin did not invade Ukraine “to support his expansionist ambitions”; rather, “the main purpose of Russia’s military operation is to prevent the aggression of the deep state and NATO. Putin is fighting against the same globalist elite that holds us all hostage.”[iii]

Talk With Nevin on Wednesday

The defender waits for the attack in position, having chosen a suitable area and prepared it; which means he has carefully reconnoitered it, erected solid defenses at some of the most important points, established and opened communications, sited his batteries, fortified some villages, selected covered assembly areas, and so forth. The strength of his front … makes it possible for him … to inflict heavy losses on the enemy at low cost to himself….

Moral Factors Decide Wars and Revolutions

In war, the moral is to the physical as three is to one.

Napoleon Bonaparte

It is said that victory in war goes to the bigger battalions. But Napoleon, who was a master in the art of war, disagreed. He suggested that moral factors were more important than numbers. And what are moral factors? According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, the moral is “concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness or badness of human character.”

How can principles of right and wrong behavior effect the outcome of a battle? War is an exacting business, full of danger and hardship. Under such conditions, honor and integrity are highly prized. Also, a belief in the rightness of one’s cause strengthens a country’s will to resist. Napoleon pointed out that, “Victory belongs to the most persevering.” He added, “The most important qualification of a soldier is fortitude under fatigue and privation. Courage is only second….”

Consider, now, the possibility of a new kind of warfare in which an enemy, instead of launching a direct attack by armies and navies, attacks a country’s moral foundations — its moral character, its moral discipline, its heroes and its founding philosophy. Imagine an attack that seeks to “demoralize” a country on this basis; that is to say, strip it of all those moralizing factors that are — as Napoleon said — “as three is to one.”

Here is the most effective way to weaken an enemy in advance of open warfare. This is not simply a theory, but an historical reality. Think of all the subtle ways America’s moral strength has been sapped. The communists and their political allies on the “progressive” left have not only attacked traditional morality, but they have offered up a false morality, a morality that celebrates cultural and sexual suicide. They have crippled marriage as an institution. They have corrupted the courts. They have removed corporal punishment from the schools. (Then again, would you trust today’s teachers to administer discipline in loco parentis?) A wave of rule breaking now coincides with a regime of unprecedented permissiveness. Contracts are not held sacred, honesty is no longer prized as it once was. Employees steal from their employers. Good manners are gone as entertainers commit violent assaults after which they are given awards and standing ovations. In Washington, D.C., the laws are enforced against one party and not another. This is the malaise that grips all Western countries, and it is no accident.

The worldwide communist movement stands at the center of our demoralization. The communists advocate a new kind of morality, which has little regard for honesty, respect for property, family, God or country. Their new morality is anti-racism, universal equality, concern for “the planet,” the championing of sexual deviancy, abortion tending toward infanticide, the redistribution of wealth, and unilateral American disarmament. If someone disagrees with these new ideals, they are trash. And as the left’s revolution advances, the trash is “taken out.”

Through all the confusing rhetoric and mock moralizing about race and gender, we must never lose sight of the communist bloc’s military end-game. There is a strategic method at work behind the communist attack on our morality. If you demoralize a country prior to war, victory is made easier. Therefore, morality in the West has not been attacked for its own sake. It was attacked to smooth the path to victory for the world’s largest country (Russia) and the world’s most populous country (China). What almost nobody has grasped is that these two countries are working together; and they have been working together for a long time with a communist fifth column.

We also find several smaller countries working with Russia and China that are also heavily armed — like North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Angola, Congo, Syria and Iran. Consider, as well, mineral-rich South Africa. The communist bloc is dominant in strategic minerals, oil, natural gas, fertilizer, and nuclear weapons. Yet none of these resources matter if there are no operative moral factors.

The moral decline of a people may be traced out in the moral decline of its leaders. If the United States Congress, once described by Mark Twain as America’s “distinctly native … criminal class,” is now so demoralized that it is as likely to pass laws to destroy the country as to defend it, then what kind of people have we become? Anyone who thinks this is an exaggeration need only look at the House majority’s readiness to let our nuclear deterrent collapse for want of appropriate funding, or the federal government’s disregard for border security.

This may be a simplification, as many factors were at work, but: – Within our very souls, our spiritual flanks were turned long ago; for the real war has been raging in the human heart and mind. This is the war we have been losing, the war that plays out prior to the advent of tanks and jets and missiles and nuclear bombs. We have opened a causeway into pride, greed, wrath, envy, lust, gluttony and sloth. The dark side of human nature is always evident during a period of decline, during a period of materialism. Think of what a little pink worm will do on a warm day with a cold carcass.

The war that has begun in Eastern Europe has surprised many observers. But the greatest surprise is the fighting spirit of the Ukrainians, who partake of moral factors that the Russian side lacks. One hears the moralizing of Americans who say that Russian prisoners have been murdered or tortured by the Ukrainian side. Such incidents, as regrettable as they are, and as inexcusable, do not unmake the larger moral ledger. Ukraine is fighting for her existence. And this is the same moral position occupied by Finland during the Winter War, or Britain during the blitz, or the Russians from 1941-1943.

“In war,” said Napoleon, “the moral is to the physical as three is to one.” The so-called miracle of Ukraine’s defense against Russia is not a function of Russian incompetence. The so-called miracle in Ukraine is a function of moral factors which lie at the root of the Euromaidan Revolution of 2014.

I have said before that the Russians, if they persevere, will probably break the Ukrainian defense when the ground is dry. Yet Russia must now endure a war of attrition for eight to ten weeks. Does the Russian Army possess the stamina for this? Does Russia possess the necessary moral factors? Despite all that we have heard on television, the Russian troops might prove more resilient than we imagine. Only time will tell. The most important and frequently used method in war, said Carl von Clausewitz, “is to wear down the enemy. That expression is more than a label; it describes the process precisely, and is not so metaphorical as it may seem at first. Wearing down the enemy in a conflict means using the duration of the war to bring about a gradual exhaustion of his physical and moral resistance.” [Book One, Chapter Two]

Only time will tell.

The Subversion of the Not-So-Innocent

If Western democracies collaborate with the KGB regime long enough, they are at risk of degrading to the level of backward and corrupt Russia. Western countries can simply lose their democratic political systems to the Mafia, leaving their citizens defenseless in front of that mortal danger.

Alexander Litvinenko, “Allegations,” p. 204

How do we understand the treason of our elites? The fact is, our elites have been compromised by their longstanding partnerships with Moscow and Beijing. The sudden flip of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Joe Biden, almost a decade ago, along with the Democratic Party, toward anti-Russian declamations, should not be taken at face value. There are understandings and relationships hidden from public view. A double game has been played by our “progressives” and those heavily invested in China. Some of them are undoubtedly in shock, at seeing the outbreak of war in eastern Europe. Others are staying the course because they actually believe in socialism and trust in their Chinese “friends.” Some readers may wonder what I am referring to. Let’s take a page from history and reconsider where we have arrived.

Notes on the Ukraine War: Plus, Trevor Loudon Discusses the Mass Line Narrative of the Day

Since the Spring of 1988 … the Western consensus of Sovietological opinion has become an automaton intolerant of dissent, even as public debate on the subject has narrowed. The pronouncements of veteran ‘anti-communists,’ once against disoriented by ideological change in Moscow, are a tangle of self-contradiction and self-deception.

Andrei Navrozov, 1991

The more things change, the more they stay the same. And so, confusion reigns again. Navrozov’s brilliant little book, The Coming Order, fell on deaf ears in 1991. In Chronicles Magazine, Arnold Beichman reviewed and debunked Navrozov with a self-satisfied and stupid polemic. In the spring of 1992, I spoke briefly about Beichman’s hit-piece and Navrozov’s book with Patrick J. Buchanan. He responded by saying that he thought Beichman had put Navrozov in his place. I begged to differ. There was something to what Navrozov was saying, I told him. Buchanan’s parting remark was, “Good luck with that.”

Ukraine and Communism: A Discussion With Trevor Loudon

Everyone left and no one returned
Only, true to the promise of love,
My latest, at least you looked back
To see the whole sky in blood.
The house was cursed, and cursed was my trade;
Uselessly, a tender song rang out
And I didn’t dare raise my eyes
To my terrible fate.
They defiled the immaculate Word,
They trampled the sacred utterance,
So that with the sicknurses of Thirty-seven
I could mop the bloody floor.
They separated me from my only son,
They tortured my friends in prisons,
They surrounded me with an invisible Stockade
Of well-coordinated shadowing.
They rewarded me with muteness
That curses the whole cursed world,
They force-fed me with scandal,
They made me drink poison.
And taking me to the very edge,
For some reason they left me there.
I would rather, as one of the city’s ‘crazies,’
Be wandering through the dying squares.

Anna Akhmatova

Such were the sad words of Anna Akhmatova, with her references to ’37 (the Stalin purges), describing her own “terrible fate,” to suffer without being killed herself, to see the “whole sky in blood,” to witness the Stalin regime’s many crimes, taking her to the very edge. And here we are again. The real abomination is that almost nobody sees. They refuse to look. Militantly, self-righteously, with scorn for those of us who can see. Who see through the eyes of Akhmatova.

The Abolition of Humanity

Four reformers met under a bramble bush. They were all agreed that the world must be changed. ‘We must abolish property,’ said one.
‘We must abolish Marriage,’ said the second.
‘We must abolish God,’ said the third.
‘I wish we could abolish work,’ said the fourth.
‘Do not let us get beyond practical politics,’ said the first. ‘The first thing is to reduce men to a common level.’
‘The first thing,’ said the second, ‘ is to give freedom to the sexes.’
‘The first thing,’ said the third, ‘is to find out how to do it.’
‘The first step,’ said the first, ‘is to abolish the Bible.’
‘The first thing,’ said the second, is to abolish the laws.’
‘The first thing,’ said the third, ‘is to abolish mankind.’

Robert Louis Stevenson, “The Four Reformers”


What a devil wants, in the greater scheme of things, is to destroy. There is, in the cosmos, a creative principle. There is, opposing it, a destructive principle. Thus we find, two opposing tendencies behind everything. And you cannot have one without the other. Look at the policies of any leader and ask if these policies tend towards creation or destruction. Will his policies bring prosperity or bankruptcy? Will they bring peace or war?

An American Plot

…in February 2014, Putin’s ‘little green men’ … seized control of Ukraine’s Crimea. Consistent with Putin’s information warfare doctrine, several days prior to the invasion, Russian intelligence services … leaked a private telephone call between Assistant Secretary of State for Russian and European Affairs Victoria Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. The two U.S. diplomats in the intercepted phone call discussed who would be the best candidate among the top opposition figures, to replace the ousted pro-Russia president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovich.

Rebekah Koffler, DIA officer[i]

Nothing in the Nuland-Pyatt conversation proves that American officials orchestrated the Euromaidan Revolution. In fact, with all the resources available to Russian intelligence you would think Moscow could have come up with something more substantial than a diplomatic non sequitur. Yet many Americans, convinced of the wickedness of their own country, have treated the Nuland-Pyatt conversation as proof that America stole Ukraine from Russia (as if Ukraine is an easy country to take over).

Russia Consolidates Hold on Ukraine, Readies Nuclear Rockets

Six weeks after he became Russia’s defense minister, General Pavel Grachev addressed a June 1992 NATO meeting in Brussels where he defined Russia’s sphere of interest as encompassing all ‘former USSR republics with which it shared territorial borders,’ and claimed that Russia ‘had every right to intervene’ in those territories unilaterally. Subsequently, Russia deployed troops throughout the Caucasus, ‘signed base treaties with Armenia and Georgia’ and ‘posted border troops along much of the former Soviet perimeter.'”

Lawrence Kohn, “Russia’s Turkish Target”

Russia is bringing her Strategic Rocket Forces up to full readiness. Russia is going to be conscripting doctors in the weeks ahead. Russia has prepared for mass burials in anticipation of a catastrophic number of casualties. What is going on here? Amid all this we have Western observers suggesting Putin has failed. One analyst, citing a TASS source, wrote, “Russian President Putin is extremely disappointed with the progress of the military operation in Ukraine.”

The War in Ukraine: Interview With the Populist Patriot

…Russia overcame the inertia of collapse and started reviving its power, while the West, being lulled by sweet day-dreams of the liberal ‘end of history,’ castrated its armed forces to the point, when they could be good [only] for leading colonial wars with weak and technically backward enemies. The balance of forces in Europe has thus changed in Russia’s favor.

Pravda, 13 November 2014

The headline of the Pravda article cited above reads, “Russia takes complete advantage of castrated armed forces of the West.” We also read in that same Russian article, “The illusion of world supremacy played a cruel joke on Washington.” We must ask a question here: Who fostered the illusion of American world supremacy? What country supposedly quit the business of nuclear competition, the business of communist subversion, the business of the Cold War? Russia supposedly quit. But they did not quit!

Russian Troops Enter Eastern Ukraine: Analysis

Russia initially did everything it could to make sure these disagreements could be resolved by peaceful means. However, the Kiev officials have conducted two punitive operations on those territories; and, apparently, we are witnessing a third escalation. All these years … the people living on those territories have been literally tortured by constant shelling and blockades.

Vladimir Putin, 21 February 2022

President Vladimir Putin spent months deploying Russian troops around Ukraine, on three sides. Of course, he said Russia was not going to invade Ukraine; and many believed him. Last week, when Putin’s spokesmen announced the Russian troops were standing down, many people believed him. But the troops did not leave their deployments. They moved closer to the border with Ukraine. And then it was alleged that the Ukrainians did a bad, bad thing. So, the Russian troops did not go home as advertised. The troops stayed in position; and on Monday, Putin decided to invade eastern Ukraine. And now Putin has asked the Duma for permission to use the Russian military to attack forces outside of Russia. Some intelligence analysts believe that a general invasion of Ukraine will soon begin.

Hurried Notes on the Pending Invasion of Ukraine

The event corresponds less to expectations in war than in any other case whatever.

Livy, History of Rome XXX, c. 10

The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, says that Wednesday will be “the day of the attack.” The Russian Duma will supposedly vote to recognize Luhansk and Donetsk. When that happens, Russian troops will move in to Ukraine.

Key points to follow: (1) The United States is evacuating its Embassy even as Americans have been advised to leave Ukraine; (2) Russian troops have surrounded Ukraine from three different directions (i.e., north, east and south); (3) Russia is demanding that Ukraine promise it will not join NATO; (4) President Zelensky says he will not make this promise; (5) Russian military bases near Ukraine show increased activity with units deploying to attack positions; (6) six Russian amphibious transports have left port in Crimea, moving up Crimea’s west coast, headed for the Ukrainian coast; (7) Russian rocket artillery units seem to be preparing to strike; (8) Ukraine is not seriously preparing to repel an invasion.

Four Strategic Puzzle Pieces

Many people today are completely convinced that a new hero of Russian history, as yet unknown, is changing its course … and we cannot comprehend his intentions, since the protagonist himself merges with other characters. Some call him by the foreign term mafia. Others express themselves more plainly in Russian and label him an ugolovnik, a criminal, struggling for power. Still others are disposed to speak of the traits and methods of today’s criminal mafia as bearing the unique stamp of yesterday’s apparatchiks, KGB agents, and influential ‘commanders of the socialist economy,’ especially the chiefs of the military-industrial complex who now occupy key political and economic posts.

Lev Timofeyev, Russia’s Secret Rulers [1992][1]

Introduction: Deceptive Liberalization

At the end of the Cold War, the Russian people demanded an investigation of “secret power structures” controlling politics and the economy.  There was the suspicion, by some, that the old Soviet system was somehow perpetuating itself in an underhanded way. How odd this situation was, may be judged by some of the advocates of Soviet liberalization. These advocates included KGB or MVD generals who suddenly cross-dressed as liberals – like MVD Gen. Edward Shevardnadze, KGB Gen. Oleg Kalugin, and then there was the Deputy Mayor of St. Petersburg, KGB Lt. Col. Vladimir Putin. Was the West suddenly willing to put its faith in such “actors”? At the time, of course, everyone thought Russia was all about reform “and the security services were on board.” But as journalist Yevgenia Albats reported in 1994, the “grand proclamation of reform was followed almost immediately by a much less publicized retreat.”[2] What really happened? The Communist Party Soviet Union went underground from whence it continued to control the state and economy through its many “actors” and front-men, including the conveniently Jewish oligarchs like Boris Berezovsky, Mikhail Khordorkovsky, and Vladimir Gusinsky. Here was an inside joke perpetrated by the Cheka – effective because antisemitism is the uneducated-man’s Marxism.

End Game: Interview with ‘Man in America’

The last three months it is organized by both sides … with a clear division of labor. Good cop and bad cop…. This campaign stated that Putin is preparing to activate troops for a full-scale invasion to a big war, for a big war to conquer a substantial portion of Ukraine, with encirclement of major Ukrainian cities. And now we can see that many Western medias are publishing maps showing all these arrows of Russian troops moving into Ukraine territory and conquering that territory that there will be a huge war. Mr. Putin has decided to reinforce these claims. But Putin’s forces are insufficient for what is needed.

Andrei Illarionov

I would be cautious about describing the Russian mobilization as an “empty threat.” It is not “empty.” This is the largest mobilization of Russian forces since the end of the Cold War. It is a real threat made with tanks, troops, aircraft and missiles. In his interview with Frank Gaffney, Illarionov’s arguments regarding the Russian deployments were not well-informed or well-considered.

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.

Will Russia Invade Ukraine?

[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]

A Brief Commentary on the Kazakhstan Situation

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.

An American Mengele: Robert Kennedy on Anthony Fauci

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.


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]

Holiday Interview With Nevin

Corruption enters society on a stream of ‘new’ ideas. Perversion gains admittance. The taint spreads. Venality and dishonesty are doubled — then redoubled. Immorality reigns. The honest man is punished for telling the truth. The legions abandon the frontier.

The Communist Long Range Strategy: A Discussion with Dave and Fabio

…between the ‘grey’ and the ‘red’ terror there may be an intermediate period — the ‘pink’ terror, when active military operations have not yet begun and there is still peace, but when some of the best spetsnaz units have already gone into action.

The Occultists and Their Secrets

If the physically unreal, namely the mind, defines all our reality, surely that which is finally true ought to be of a metaphysical, ephemeral, abstract, nonphysical nature, rather than of a ‘hard,’ enforced, verifiable one.

Nigel Kerner
Grey Aliens and the Harvesting of Souls [1]

Both views, the materialistic as well as the spiritualistic, are metaphysical prejudices. It accords better with experience to suppose that living matter has a psychic aspect, and the psyche has a physical aspect.

Carl Jung
Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Sky [2]

Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology. It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have seemingly coexisted with man throughout history. Thousands of books have been written on the subject, many of them authored by educated clergymen, scientists, and scholars, and uncounted numbers of well-documented demonic events are readily available to every researcher. The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar.”

John A. Keel, Why UFOs [3]

We are living in a materialist age. Even religious people believe in “evolution” and “science.” Reality is said to coincide with matter. Spirit is said to coincide with superstition. The mind is said to be epiphenomenal, the illusion of consciousness owing to chemical reactions in the brain. It is assumed that when the brain dies, the mind is extinguished. All favored solutions are material solutions. We rarely stop to consider that our “material world” was long ago negated by the Second Law of Thermodynamics (i.e., entropy). Material reality is dying. It has always been dying. Therefore, the material universe could not have always existed; that is, unless something nonphysical (i.e., spiritual) has always been there to sustain it.

On Global Cooling with David DuByne: The Coming Food Crisis

Belief in manmade global warming depends on acting as if the laws of physics are suspended and we are living in special time in which the climate is unchanging apart from the hand of man. In a sense we actually are living in a special time relative to the last 3 million years, which has been an ice age. The special time we live in is an interglacial period — a temporary respite in the ice age.

David Archibald, The Twilight of Abundance

A cold wave hits Europe. Spain has to restart its coal plants. Siberia suffers 68 below zero temperatures on December 2. Record spring temperatures are recorded in Antarctica. Russia and China are husbanding their water and fertilizer resources. Fertilizer shortages begin to be felt in the United States and other countries. What is happening? How do we understand it? I decided to resume my discussion on global cooling with David DuByne of Adapt 2030. By popular demand….

Olavo’s Machiavelli

A prince also wins prestige for being a true friend or a true enemy, that is, for revealing himself without any reservation in favor of one side against another. This policy is always more advantageous than neutrality.”

Niccolo Machiavelli

Machiavelli has been credited with wisdom, after a modern fashion. In the passage quoted above, the Florentine sage claimed that being a true friend or a true enemy is always more advantageous. But there is a problem with this advice: How would Machiavelli explain the success of Swiss neutrality through two world wars? Of course, he cannot. The fact is, Machiavelli’s writings are full of maxims that do not prove to be true. So why is he celebrated as an important figure? My own answer is that Machiavelli became important because his cynicism was so incredibly naïve, and he dared to immortalize it in prose. It is not that he wrote the truth; rather, he told us how “cynical people think.” And this is a valuable corrective to naive idealism.

The Metaphysics of Social Engineering

In the technique of subliminal contradiction, two mutually incompatible bits of information are simultaneously projected into the perception of the victim without the contradiction being either pointed out or explained. In the technique of deferred closure, inexplicable data are continually fed to the victim … over a period of time, data that always suggest the possibility of a rational explanation but never quite allow it.

Charles Upton

In Charles Upton’s remarkable little volume, titled The Alien Disclosure Deception: The Metaphysics of Social Engineering, the author discusses sophisticated techniques of psychological warfare used by governments. These include the technique of subliminal contradiction and the technique of deferred closure. Each is designed to attack the human mind’s need for rational closure. A mind that cannot achieve closure, he warned, “will react to the continued frustration of one of its most basic needs either by sinking into stunned exhaustion, or by producing a paranoid, delusional form of closure.”[i]

A Totalitarian Agenda: Austria and the Future of Vaccine Mandates

No, I don’t think it should be mandatory. I wouldn’t demand it be mandatory.

Joe Biden, January 2021[i]

Primarily coal industry and oil and gas industry, a lot of smaller players in that industry are going to probably go bankrupt in short order – at least we want them to go bankrupt if we want to tackle climate change.”

Saule Omarova, Biden’s Treasury pick

There are two major totalitarian agendas at work today. One is vaccine mandates (and passports), while the other is climate change. These two agendas are connected, but not as you might imagine. They are connected because the planet is about to experience cooling instead of warming. This cooling will be caused by the Grand Solar Minimum that began last year. Food production will be seriously disrupted by weather, and already has been affected in some regions. In other words, we are headed for a global famine. Humanity is going to suffer a massive die-off. I strongly suspect the pandemic, the vaccine mandates, and the vaccine passports are related to this impending situation.

When History Stops

Histories are as perfect as the Historian is wise … and … the grand difference between a Dryasdust and a sacred Poet, is very much even this…. When both oblivion and memory are wise, when the general soul of man is clear, melodious, true, there may come a modern Iliad as memorial of the Past: when both are foolish, and the general soul is overclouded with confusions, with unveracities and discords, there is a ‘Rushworthian chaos.’ Let Dryasdust be blamed….

Thomas Carlyle, “Anti-Dryasdust”

History is not everything that happens. History, said Carlyle, consists in the worthwhile – not the trivial. Because history is about meaningful things, it must be oriented to what things mean, what they signify, portend, and lead to. Understanding history does not involve knowing every last detail of an event. It does not require us to know what the peasant had for lunch. True history is discovered through a process of sifting. The true historian, it turns out, must possess skills similar to those of an intelligence analyst (or detective). The historian and the intelligence analyst must sift a large mass of data. In the end, both must find the underlying Truth. The historian seeks the key to a historical narrative while the intelligence analyst seeks to understand enemy strategy. Sometimes the key to the historical narrative is the enemy strategy.[ii]

Evola and Weaver

While Weaver loved the South with a fierce passion, he avoided one of the besetting sins of the heirs of the Agrarians: a constricting sectionalism that thrives on the belief that all would have been well south of the Potomac had the Confederacy bested the Union Armies. Weaver perceived that the infirmities of modern Western civilization transcended the dichotomy between North and South.

George M. Curtis & James J. Thompson, Jr [i].

Who is Julius Evola? His career was many-sided: As a philosopher he belongs among the leading representatives of Italian Idealism … to some he might appear as an èminence grise in politics, for Mussolini apparently wanted to implement some of Evola’s ideas to create more freedom from the restrictions of National Socialism … and many of his books testify to his understanding of alchemy and magic, and it is reported that Mussolini stood in considerable awe of Evola’s ‘magical powers.’”

H.T. Hansen [ii]

When a thinker says civilization has taken the wrong road, when he says civilization is in the process of disintegrating, when his political sympathies lie with a defeated power that tried to establish a different pattern of civilization, then that thinker is a pariah. He stands outside the circle of “received wisdom.” What, then, can we learn from him? Being an outsider, he sometimes sees what the rest of us have missed. Some of his views may be repellant, or outrageous, yet he should not be ignored; for those who find themselves standing outside a civilization are not entangled in the conceits of that civilization, or engaged in the deceptive flattery that feeds it. The thinker who stands outside civilization, who suffers intellectual exile, may be civilization’s only honest critic. He may, in fact, be honest and courageous enough to pour cold water over our heads and cry “shame.” Why, indeed, would he do such a thing? There is never any money is such a career. Everyone and everything, in fact, is moving further and further from him. Whatever his failings or missteps, he has his little corner of truth. Wariness is advised in approaching him, of course. One should never approach pariahs uncritically. One approaches them to learn truths that we have exiled. One approaches them with one burning question: What have we failed to see?

A Failure of Intelligence, or an Intelligence Failure?

Despite the overwhelming scientific evidence that COVID-19 could not have evolved in nature and, therefore, must have been created in a laboratory, it came as no surprise that U.S. intelligence agencies released an inconclusive report about its origin.

Joe Hoft, Gateway Pundit[i]

It should come as no surprise that America’s intelligence agencies are clueless, because these agencies recruit their analysts and managers from America’s colleges and universities. As institutions go, our colleges and universities specialize in cluelessness. A university degree is, in fact, training in how not to see. Why has this happened? “The essential thing has gone out of the entire system of higher education,” wrote Friedrich Nietzsche in 1888. How did it happen? A political ideal, Nietzsche explained, has been substituted for intellectual cultivation.

Knowing Your Enemy: Who Was Karl Marx?

…generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children, that … this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.

Barack Obama, 2008

You can tell how dangerous a politician is by the grandiosity of his statements. As Jim Simpson points out in his latest book, Marxist politicians who hide their Marxism under benign-sounding slogans, are among the most grandiose and dangerous. Listen to their bragging and you will hear of their magical abilities – to change the weather, to lower sea level, to cure sickness and poverty. Such claims are self-aggrandizing, to be sure. Promising people free health care, free jobs, free money, etc., is a path to power, after all. And isn’t power like magic? Yet, that same power prefigures massive taxation and the plundering of private citizens, the shuttering of businesses, the degradation of healthcare. It is robbing Peter to pay Paul.

The Heroic Path vs. the Path to Nowhere

His life … is a piece of the everlasting heart of Nature herself: all men’s life is, – but [the] weak [who are] many know not the fact, and are untrue to it, in most times; the strong few are strong, heroic, perennial, because it cannot be hidden from them.

Thomas Carlyle

The hero is concerned with seeing. The villain is merely concerned with the manipulation of appearances. What an accomplishment it is, indeed, to see behind the foliage of “appearances.” Truth has its camouflage, its bodyguard of lies (if Churchill’s paradox is admitted). Truth is also a moving target, and a living thing, said Plato; never wholly captured by men even in animated discourse. On the other hand, a lie needs no discourse at all; for repetition is not discourse. Being easier than truth, a lie prevails with those who want everything to be easy. This is why modernity prefers “experts.” As Socrates once said of experts, “They will appear to be omniscient and will generally know nothing; they will be tiresome, having the reputation of knowledge without the reality.”[i]

Why the Brazilian Supreme Court Ordered the Arrest and Extradition of Allan Dos Santos?

We are a free country and we will remain free, even at the sacrifice of our lives.

Jair Bolsonaro

On 21 October 2021, Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Alexandre de Moraes ordered the arrest and extradition (from the United States) of journalist Allan dos Santos of Terça Livre TV. What was Allan’s crime? He knew the Court was corrupt, and he had information on felonies committed by two of the Court’s justices. Determined to survive in place, these justices have created a new set of interpretations relating to the Brazilian Constitution. Their plan has been to wage war on something they call “fake news.” They have used their newly acquired powers to silence media criticism. But especially, they want to silence Allan dos Santos.

The Taiwan Question

Who are our enemies, and who are our friends? This question is one of primary importance in the revolution. All past revolutionary struggles in China achieved very little, basically because the revolutionaries were unable to unite their real friends to attack their real enemies.

Mao Zedong, founder of Communist China
“Analysis of Classes in Chinese Society”

We have to make sure that we deter China on every front, and Taiwan is obviously critical. But most important, we must deter China in a way that does not unbalance our overall strategic position – which faces Russia in Europe and Iran in the Middle East (not to mention Cuba and Venezuela in the Caribbean). To understand our strategic position, it is worth keeping Chinese Grand Strategy in mind. The debate on Chinese grand strategy is difficult because China has successfully hidden its ultimate grand strategic direction and objectives. And so, we are left judging by actions. But actions can also be misleading. Even invasion preparations can be misleading.

A Note on Brazil, Peru – And 22 Warning Signs

….Mao believes in the Marxist-Leninist theory that war is inevitable, but maintains that he is convinced that the capitalist powers, not the communist countries, will eventually launch a war in a desperate, last-ditch struggle to prevent communism from taking over the world by peaceful means.

Dan Kurzman [i]

Several years ago, I received text messages from a man in Brazil named Allan dos Santos. He was a student of Olavo de Carvalho, and wanted to start a podcast with me. He asked if I could get Diana West to join our first broadcast. On his side, Allan would get Olavo to join us. We would discuss how communism was threatening to take over Brazil and America. Diana and Olavo agreed to join us for a rousing discussion. The broadcast was a success. We had over 10,000 views in two or three days. Most of our listeners were Brazilians who understood English.

Shakespeare, “Hamlet”

We now live in a nation where generals destroy military readiness, doctors destroy health, airlines destroy air travel, the Justice Department destroys justice, and now we have a vaccine that does not vaccinate. The COVID-19 vaccines were supposed to eradicate COVID-19, but now that hundreds of millions are vaccinated the virus is killing more people than ever. Worse yet, the global economy is breaking under the strain. But the “leaders” of West are relentless; – especially President Biden, who has compared the experimental COVID vaccines to vaccines for polio, measles, mumps, etc. We want a cure, right? Biden says the vaccines are the cure. But the numbers suggest otherwise.

End Game: Man in American Interview

If the ruler loves to use his knowledge to alter the laws, constantly manipulates public matters for his personal benefit, alters and changes the regulations and prohibitions, and frequently issues all sorts of directives, the state can be destroyed.

Han Fei-tzu, “Precursors to Extinction”

Are we in the end-game of an East vs. West Cold War that never really ended? If so, how might we tell who is winning? In The Tao of Spycraft: Intelligence Theory and Practice in Traditional China, Chapter 14 covers the topic of political intelligence, with a subsection titled “Signs of a Doomed State.” Here we read classic commentaries from ancient Chinese sages. Some of the warning signs might be applied to China, others might be applied to America. Are both countries doomed?

A Tactical Aside From Mao Zedong

It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.”

Mark Twain

In Dan Kurzman’s fine book, Subversion of the Innocents, we learn that Stalin’s strategy in the early Cold War proved inferior to Mao Zedong’s strategy. Mao’s program was called “The Yenan Way” and relied on a special kind of deception. It was all about disguising communists as agrarian reformers. It involved winning over middle class opportunists, businessmen and the intelligentsia. In primitive areas of the world, like Africa, Mao realized that communist ideology did not matter – so there was every reason to ignore Marxist doctrines. Everything was reduced to anti-Americanism or anti-European imperialism. As Kurzman explained, “The central purpose of the Yenan Way is actually not so much to gain mass support as to win over influential noncommunist ‘friends,’ particularly in the political field, who can open channels for infiltration in the highest councils of the nation. Such friends are obtained by any means that will work – lies, flattery, threats, blackmail, bribery, or outright purchase.”[i]

Vaccine Madness, Part I

Throughout the stagnation period [under Brezhnev], not to mention the cult [of Stalin] era, people were afraid to say anything that conflicted with the ‘supreme’ opinion, learning only one thing – to vote unanimously for anything. We would take comfort from the fact that we were doing the same as everyone else. We were only bold when it came to political anecdotes…. Now we are only just learning to speak the truth.

V. Matveyenko
As quoted in Izvestiya
12 March 1988[i]

What happens to the truth when people are silenced? What happens after the government has extorted something vital from a nation – from its warrior class – by threatening people’s jobs, livelihoods, and freedom of movement? Once you have been intimidated into taking an experimental injection because you are “afraid to say anything,” or incapable of standing up, that is the end of your liberty. Your governors can ride roughshod over you and they know it. In that situation, only one comfort remains; namely, that you are doing what everyone else is doing.

Aliens vs. Reds, Part II

This is the tale of a tragic dynasty;
a narrative of hatred, honor, courage,
of virtue, love, ideals and wickedness,
and of a war so terrible, it marked
the threshold between one age and the next.

The Mahabharata

In Judaism and Christianity, we have a snake in the Garden of Eden. In ancient Babylon the chief god was Marduk, whose animal symbol was a snake-dragon. In ancient India, there was a snake named Takshaka, who poisoned and killed King Parikshit. Seeking revenge, the dead king’s son decided on revenge and built a furnace. The Mahabharata states: “Serpents by the million, of every color … fell hissing, terrified, into the furnace.” The “devout son” of a “snake woman,” named Astika, was implored by his mother to save his kin. The young man was a “brahmin [intellectual] child of great sweetness,” who won the king’s heart. Name anything you might want, said the king. “Stop the [snake] sacrifice,” said Astika. And so, the snakes were saved. [i]

Why not propagate a more thrilling narrative yourself? Let’s face it, writing about communist subversion is old hat. It is boring.” – To which I respond with a decided groan. – “Don’t be defensive,” says Mr. Insult after Mr. Injury. What?! Am I running a candy shop?

Political Discernment in an Age of Decline

Even the bravest of us rarely has the courage for what he knows


In his small, strange little book, Twilight of the Idols, Nietzsche discussed the “problem of Socrates,” starting from the premise that “the great sages are declining types.” He suggested that Socrates and Plato were “symptoms of decay” and “agents of the dissolution of Greece.” In fact, he claimed they were “pseudo-Greek [and] anti-Greek.”[1] Of course, Nietzsche saw a parallel with modernity. He saw that modern thinkers have also proven to be declining types. In fact, our thinkers, our intellectuals, have busied themselves with destroying civilization through the “organization of political hatreds.”

Global Cooling: An Interview With David DuByne

During several of the summer months of 1783, when the effect of the sun’s rays to heat the earth in these northern regions should have been the greatest, there existed a constant fog over all of Europe, and a great part of North America. This fog was of a permanent nature; it was dry, and the rays of the sun seemed to have little effect toward dissipating it, as they easily do to a moist fog, arising from water. They were indeed rendered so faint of a burning, they would scarce kindle brown paper. Of course, their summer effect in heating the earth was exceedingly diminished.

Benjamin Franklin, 1784
Aftermath of the 1783 Laki eruption
In Iceland

Is global warming real, or are we facing global cooling? I had the pleasure of interviewing David DuByne on Saturday, September 11. David has been talking about the coming of a mini Ice Age. He also knows a great deal about changes in the Earth’s electromagnetic field, food supply issues, farming, and theories regarding catastrophic earth changes. One of the big questions is whether the Chinese and Russians have advanced knowledge of these climate changes. If so, are there strategic ramifications?

False Narratives, False Heroes: The Pillow Fight, Part III

On the Formation of Ricin Nanocapsules and Other Curiosities

We adapted a technology whereby individual [ricin] protein molecules are encapsulated within a thin polymer shell, termed nanocapsules. These nanocapsules can effectively enter the cells, owing to the positive charge on their surface and release their [ricin] protein cargo due to the ‘proton-sponge’ effect…. One unique advantage of this nanocapsule platform is its flexibility. By altering the chemical properties of the nanocapsule surface, one can modulate critical factors such as cell surface affinity, immunogenicity, release rates of its cargo, circulation time and biodistribution.”

The West’s decline into “fragmentation,” said Weaver, owes much to an inner disintegration of soul, an egotism without any sense of proportion. Weaver then quoted Plato’s statement that, “the excessive love of self is in reality the source to each man of all offenses; for the lover is blinded about the beloved, so that he judges wrongly of the just, the good, and the honorable, and thinks that he ought to prefer his own interest to the truth.” With these words the ancient philosopher has given us an insight into the collapse of empires and the fall of mighty men; and also, an insight into the fall of a pillow salesman from Minnesota named Mike Lindell.

Interview on the Cuba Revolt: Should America Intervene?

We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and these other powers to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety.

The Monroe Doctrine, 1823

According to Marcell Felipe, the protests in Cuba are “a rejection of socialism and communism.” In the United States we are told a different story. It is, they say, all about COVID-19 and vaccine availability. What is the truth? Marcell Felipe says, “No one is protesting COVID-19. People are asking specifically for freedom.” People are chanting, “Down with the dictatorship!”

Absolute Proof or Absolute Fiasco?

Mike Lindell … could do so much good. He has got so much wealth. He could be our George Soros…. Instead, he is sinking millions and millions of dollars into these videos and this upcoming Symposium on alleged cyber-warfare from China. I fear … it is just going to be money down the crapper.

Cliff Kincaid

As the Lindell Cyber Symposium has begun, it is worth reviewing what we know in the midst of so much disinformation from right and left. Cliff asked me why Lindell’s information is not to be believed. I told him that the ultimate source of Lindell’s information, of course, is serial fraudster Dennis Montgomery. I asked Cliff, furthermore, that “If [China] wanted to change our election, would they do it so obviously that we could trace their computers back to their own country?” This does not make sense.

Post Script: From Backstage

The word from backstage at the Cyber Symposium in South Dakota is that the cyber experts are unhappy. Expert Robert Graham is reporting, on Twitter, “they are not allowing pcap experts to analyze this data.” The “proof” is not in the pudding. In fact, the whole thing IS A PUDDING. Such a shame. Such a waste of effort.

On Nietzsche’s Madness Prefiguring Our Own

Dear Herr Professor, when it comes to it I too would very much prefer a professorial chair in Basel [University] to being God; but I did not dare to go as far in my private egoism as to refrain for its sake from the creation of the world … being condemned to entertain the next eternity with bad witticisms.

Friedrich Nietzsche to Jacob Burckhardt
Letter of 6 January 1889

It is a tragic fact that Nietzsche was ill, and this illness famously resolved itself into madness. Yet, despite his errors, his contradictions, his contribution to modernity’s moral malaise, he kept one foot planted in the camp of civilization. A part of him struggled against nihilism. At odd intervals he looked forward to the reconstruction of civilization — even allowing (in one passage) that the “death of God” was “only a rumor”; that he himself could believe in God, as long as it was a “dancing God.” In his madness, indeed, Nietzsche said he would have rather been a professor at Basel University than God.

A (Very) Short Fictitious Interlude

From a humanitarian perspective, we should issue a warning to the American people and persuade them to leave America and leave the land they have lived in to the Chinese people. Or at least they should leave half the United States to be China’s colony, because America was first discovered by the Chinese. But would this work? If this strategy does not work, then there is only one choice left to us. That is, use decisive means to ‘clean up’ America and reserve America for our use….”

General Chi Haotian, 2003 Secret Speech

China’s defense minister, General Chi Haotian, looked at his desk calendar. On Saturday the Year of the Goat begins, he thought. The goat means luck. But I was born in the Year of the Snakethe “little dragon.” The skin of the snake is always cool, hiding a fervent heart. Chi looked out the window of his Defense Ministry Office at the smoggy Beijing skyline. The time was going by very quickly. He was scheduled to retire in March. How does an old snake retire? A copy of Sun Tzu’s Art of War sat on his desk. I will read classics, he thought to himself. Another book also sat on his desk. It was a volume of essays by Mao Zedong. He turned to the first section of the book, “Analysis of the Classes in Chinese Society.”

A Lesson on the Communist Movement: An Expert Speaks

In 1960, a secret directive was issued by the KGB in Moscow to the intelligence service’s representatives abroad and the security service at home on the influencing of foreign visitors to the Soviet Union, especially politicians and scholars; efforts were made to use, recruit, and discredit anticommunist politicians, journalists, scholars, and analysts of communist affairs during their visits to communist countries.

Anatoliy Golitsyn

The common element in all of this is the degeneration of language into an instrument of rape. It does contain violence, albeit in latent form. And precisely this is one of the lessons recognized by Plato through his own experience with the sophists of his time, a lesson he sets before us as well. This lesson, in a nutshell, says: the abuse of political power is fundamentally connected with the sophistic abuse of the word, indeed, finds in it the fertile soil in which to hide and grow and get ready, so much so that the latent potential of the totalitarian poison can be ascertained, as it were, by observing the symptom of the public abuse of language. The degradation, too, of man through man … by all tyrannies, has its beginnings … when the word loses its dignity.

Joseph Pieper

In this age of “technicity,” “sociology,” and “economics,” many people do not take ideas seriously. Instead of ideas, they have catchwords. Everything is resolved into one catchword; and that catchword is “science.” The Marxists and their fellow travelers have claimed “science” as their very own; that is, they claim the social sciences, climate science, and medical science (regarding viruses, vaccines, lock-downs, etc.).

Russian Strategy and Europe’s Refugee Crisis

You in the West, you think you are playing chess with us, but you are never going to win because we are not following any rules.

Russian mobster to his lawyer
Catherine Belton, Putin’s People


Forty years ago, a serious long-term problem confronting Moscow was the USSR’s fast-growing Muslim population. It was then speculated that the Soviet Union’s high Muslim birthrate would turn the USSR into a majority Muslim country by the middle of the twenty-first century. It is a strange joke, and more than a curious twist of fate, that NATO faces this same prospect today.

Absolute Sabotage: The Rise and Coming Fall of a False Narrative

I’ve stuck by my beliefs, I’m not going to change.

Mike Lindell

Since last November the country has been divided about the election. Roughly a third of the population believes the election was stolen from President Donald Trump. About 59 percent disagree with this assertion, with 9 percent saying they do not know. This division of the country is no ordinary one. If this question is not settled by rational inquiry, America could break into two countries – or revert to a one-party dictatorship – a regime of threats and punishments.

Political Insanity, Part II: From Don Quixote to Mark Milley

Don Quixote sets out alone as a man, a traveling knight, who in the spirit of the tale of chivalry wants to help the humble to what is their right…. Since he departs alone, the matter turns out relatively well, because when he comes to this famous inn and wants to be dubbed knight there, the innkeeper and his staff enter into Don Quixote’s tomfoolery and play the dubbing of a knight with him…. Then he returns home highly satisfied. [It] goes relatively well, as long as he is alone and others benevolently enter into the tomfoolery. So let the buffoon go; he is a buffoon!

Eric Voegelin, “Hitler and the Germans”

Voegelin’s discourse on Don Quixote appears in a book titled Hitler and the Germans. This is no accident, for Hitler was Germany’s buffoon – posing as Germany’s savior. Buffoonish antics, in history, often entail serious consequences. Today we have a new set of buffoons, on the left and on the right. Therefore, nobody should be caught off guard by what is coming. But they will be caught of guard for the very simple reason that they have not been paying close attention. Everything “goes relatively well,” wrote Voegelin, “as long as … others benevolently enter into the tomfoolery.” We are beyond that now. Others are not “benevolently” entering into it. Quite the opposite.

Political Insanity: A Diagnosis

The intentionality of consciousness toward objects would not in itself lead to fallacious images of reality if man’s participation were automatic, producing in consciousness correct images of reality and nothing beyond that. Consciousness has a dimension of freedom, however, as it designs its images of reality. In this dimension are found such disparate phenomena as … private worldviews of the liberal bourgeois, and constructions of ideological systems. Within this wide range of problems we are here directly concerned only with the possibility of the separation of form and contents of reality, for it is in separation that the phenomena of the loss of reality originate.

Eric Voegelin, “What is Political Reality?”

Many Americans, especially politicians, suffer from a form of insanity. They continue to turn a blind eye to the military preparations of Russia and China. These preparations should be front and center, but they are not. The attentive citizen glimpses the danger out of the corner of one eye, now and again. A series of “little” warnings trickle in from abroad. For example: “Japanese official warns U.S. of potential surprise attack on Hawaii – from Russia and China.” More alarming than this, a source in Ukraine (which I will not name) says that Russia’s military has secretly agreed on a price for Mexican cartels to smuggle Russian Spetsnaz commandos across the U.S.-Mexican border. This, of course, is consistent with the following Russian war preparations: “Russian jets practice bombing enemy ships days after threatening to sink HMS Defender amid NATO war games” and “Putin approves new National Security Strategy preparing Russian economy for war.”

Did a Chinese Spymaster Defect?

Conventional methodology tends to regard a secret source as reliable if the information it provides is broadly compatible with other information openly available; conversely, a source reporting information that conflicts with the generally accepted view of the situation in the communist world may be discounted or rejected. In the absence of disinformation, this methodology would be valid. But the Shelepin Report of May 1959 marked the introduction of a systematic program of disinformation.

Anatoliy Golitsyn, KGB defector

On 16 June a prominent U.S.-based Chinese dissident, Han Lianchao, passed along a rumor that Dong Jingwei, vice minister at China’s Ministry of State Security, had defected to the United States. The next day, Conservative media RedState claimed that Dong Jingwei had indeed defected to the Defense Intelligence Agency with information on COVID-19’s origins. China officially denies these reports and rumors. What is the truth behind this alleged defection? Here is my discussion with Cliff Kincaid on the subject.

The Kraken That Was Not: A Fractured Fairy Tale

Look, Bullwinkle, a message in a bottle!

Rocket J. Squirrel

Once upon a time there was a swamp; and in this swamp was a toad named Dennis “the Kraken.” It is a curious thing for a small and grotesque amphibian to bear such an exalted nickname; yet this toad could bloat himself to several hundred times his normal size, taking the shape of a legendary cephalopod from Scandinavian folklore – the terrorizer of fjords and sea lanes – known in Old Norse as the Kraki. When bloated to Kraken size, Dennis was outfitted with artificial tentacles “fanning” out in every direction. But his tentacles were not his own; for Dennis was only a puffed-out toad made to look like a Kraken, with the insignia of a three-letter agency tattooed on his caboose.

The Infiltrators

Infiltratornoun, a person who secretly becomes part of a group in order to get information or to influence the way the group thinks or behaves.

Cambridge Dictionary

They look like you. They talk like you. It is assumed that they think like you. Only they are nothing like you. They are the infiltrators. Their job is to infiltrate an agency, a political party, a medical lab, or the White House. In fact, our society has been infiltrated at many levels; but who bothers to notice? Some infiltrators are assigned to approach important people: businessmen, politicians, broadcasters, high-level bureaucrats. If the person in question is important enough, infiltrators come up from the floorboards, through the ceiling, and from the four walls. It is infiltration by encirclement.

Interview With Nevin: Red Dawn in Retrospect

We’ve got a biological war going on. The Chinese are telling their people to get ready for nuclear war. The Russians are getting ready…. These are all pre-war signs. They [the Russians] are getting rid of [the dollars in their] sovereign funds; and then you have these mass assassinations, these drone attacks in Mexico…. This is very important for them, for pre-positioning [small units of Spetsnaz] troops.

Invasion America?

To achieve victory in a future war, it will not be sufficient to have nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them very accurately on target; it will also be necessary that the ground forces be able to move rapidly into regions which have been subjected to nuclear strikes. Only when this problem is solved will it be possible to speak of the effective exploitation of nuclear strikes by tanks and infantry in conclusively defeating the enemy, or of carrying out extensive maneuvers and decisive advances in depth.

Soviet Military Strategy, [p. 343]

In 1990 I spoke with a Mexican gun runner. We met at the house of a someone we both knew. The Mexican placed a loaded gun on the table and spoke expansively about his “love” of mankind, his Cuban drinking buddies in Mexico, and the future destruction of the United States. There was an unmistakable Marxist element in the gunrunner’s far-left worldview. It was clear from our conversation that he hated America and he loved communist Cuba.

Interview With Nevin, Part III

Western desire for convergence between the communist and noncommunist systems, is, by and large, sincere. There is genuine, intense, and legitimate concern about the avoidance of an East-West nuclear conflict.

Anatoliy Golitsyn, KGB defector

In this interview with Nevin Gussack we hear Nevin ask the question, “How has this country [America] managed to survive?” It is not a trivial question. America believed the Russian lies and dropped her guard. We elected “stealth socialists” to office. We allowed our nuclear forces to become obsolete. Now China and Russia are emerging with a military preponderance. How did we get here? Where is this headed?

Interview with Leaders of the Hong Kong Independence Party (HKIP)


The Hong Kong Independence Party (HKIP) has been opposed to the Chinese Communist Party’s takeover of Hong Kong. I recently had the opportunity to interview spokesmen of the HKIP, Thomas Fong, K.C. Wong, and John Lee. These gentlemen have a compelling case to make for Hong Kong’s independence. They have direct experience in battling Chinese communism and know the tactics of the CCP better than many “experts” in the West. They offer us a warning about China. At the same time, they pose a question: Will the West stand up for Hong Kong?

Interview With Renato Cristin


Renato Cristin is a professor of hermeneutic philosophy at the University of Trieste, Italy. He is the promoter of a worldwide campaign to conduct a “Nuremberg” trial against communism. This was an idea of Professor Cristin’s friend, the late Russian dissident Vladimir Bukovsky, who believed that a trial of communism was necessary if only to confront the world with communism’s many unpunished crimes. Cristin has a unique way of explaining the collapse of communism. It is a collapse, he says, in which the Iron Curtain was replaced with emerging communist movements in every Western country. Now every country is split within itself. In this process, the communists no longer use their old labels as before. He offers us a striking example of anti-communists being marginalized at the end of the Cold War (instead of Marxists being marginalized). Professor Cristin describes the system of the Chinese Communist Party as a mix of communism and capitalism. He does not mention the revolutionary/strategic significance of Lenin’s NEP or Deng Xiaoping’s Four Modernizations. Even so, he recognizes the communist ideology at the heart of the Chinese ruling system. Here is the reason for the ruling party’s many crimes. Cristin’s emphasis on the immoral nature of communism deserves special appreciation. Please read his words with careful attention

The Marxist Takeover of America

Becoming aware of the Marxist conquest of American society, one will never again look at things in the same way. Mainstream media, social media, the public education system, including the university, as well as federal agencies have all become vessels of various schools of thought that are rooted in Marxist ideology….

M. Lohmeier

Lieutenant Colonel Mathew Lohmeier was (until last week) an active-duty Space Force commander worried about Marxism in the U.S. military. Lohmeier knows, from firsthand, that Marxism has established a foothold in the U.S. Defense Department; so he wrote a book titled Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military. Since Marxism has taken hold of the upper management of the U.S. military, it is only natural that Lohmeier would be stripped of command and “investigated” for “partisan political activity.”

Discussion With Cliff Kincaid

I am one of the most censored people in the United States, suffering at the hands of the radical left; but also conservatives, “responsible conservatives,” who don’t like my views … that I am pro-vaccine…. I am in support of what President Trump did with his Operation Warp Speed. I think it’s a tremendous American achievement.

Cliff Kincaid

Cliff’s work has been worth following for many years. Cliff and I had an interesting discussion off-air, prior to our broadcast, about the vaccine. I expressed my reservations and he expressed his confidence in American science. Whatever our differences might be, Cliff is one of those rare journalists who knows that Russia and China are working against the United States. Here is our discussion:

Of Miracles, Seers, and Auspices

MIRACLE, n. An act or event out of the order of nature and unaccountable, as beating a normal hand of four kings and an ace with four aces and a king.

Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

Readers have asked for an update from German author Leo H. DeGard, who tapped me twenty years ago for inclusion in his book, Who is Planning the Third World War: An analysis from prophetic, military and intelligence sources. He graciously agreed to discuss present European events in light of past statements by European mystics and seers. Please note: Coverage of this subject is not meant as an endorsement of specific prophecies, seers or predictions.

When the Lion Kills the Fox: Or, When Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Those are the usual arguments of people who … dread [using violence] … [and] so the fox always reasons – but not the lions; and that is the chief reason why the lion kills the fox in the end.”

Vilfredo Pareto, The Mind and Society, p. 1792

The French right-wing magazine, Valeurs Actuelles, published an open letter from twenty retired French generals last month. In essence, the generals charged the French government with being anti-French. Incredibly, this is a watershed for the West because the French generals are addressing a problem shared by other Western countries; for example, that the German government is anti-German, the Swedish government is anti-Swedish, and the U.S. Government is anti-American, etc.

Death Knell of the Anglo-Saxons?

As you know, the moral underpinnings of our military have been destroyed. [First] there came the removal of the policy of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ then the forced integration of transgendered people, and now they want women brought to the tip of the spear.

Admiral James “Ace” Lyons, March 2017

In 1948 Richard M. Weaver wrote that “modern man’s descent into chaos” began with “yielding to materialism.” What followed from that, he said, was a crazy train of consequences: the triumph of egotism, social anarchy, the welfare state, and demoralization. The damage has been cumulative. Now we arrive at a very dangerous moment – with slogans like “build back better” and “the Great Reset.” These are codewords for socialist revolution. In fact, these are communist codewords. An internal enemy is now inside our government (inside many governments). Communists have been masquerading as moderates, and sometimes as Christian Democrats or even Republicans. They have armed themselves with state power and the power of the mob – a mob that has already torn down statues of our Founding Fathers; a mob that has torched buildings and looted stores. In the midst of a “pandemic” unleashed from communist China, an election was stolen while agent provocateurs with false narratives piled misdirection onto disinformation. Meanwhile our external enemies – Russia and China – have initiated an unprecedented military buildup, arming themselves with missiles and submarines, nuclear EMP bombs and terrifying superweapons. All the while America’s armament has been weakened. America’s spear has been blunted if not broken by years of neglect, obstruction and sabotage.
