Wall Street Journal’s editor neocon hawk and warmonger Bret Stephens just wrote an article that was intended to be like a “sum” of all evils of Putin and Christian Russia. In the best Neocon tradition of John McCain, Stephens cheers the warmonger Cold War II hawks with a case for keep playing the hard line against Russia.
Perhaps Stephens thinks that keeping the hardline and Cold War II will push the Russian military to execute a coup against Putin and bring in a new Globalist Voltaire like regime into Russia(?); or perhaps Stephens thinks that a hardline neocon line will make Putin “scared” of all the John McCains in the world and abandon the Russians in Eastern Ukraine to be massacred by the militias or the Christians in Syria to be massacred by the Sunni jihadists?
Whatever Stephens thinks the result would be (the Coup to bring a Cultural Marxist regime or scaring Putin) he tries to do a compelling case against Putin and to keep alive the Cold War II. (Not as complete as St Thomas’s “Sum” but he tries hard.)
Now, let’s see who Stephens is. Bret Stephens (aka Bret Ehrlich if his grandfather would not have changed his last name) is a 43 years old New Yorker neocon, former editor of the Jerusalem Post. An “academic” intelligence and foreign affairs “analyst” and editorial commentator who never has been a real analyst in any intelligence agency, never has been in the military, and was rewarded with a Pulitzer for defending the policies… that get rewarded by the Neocon world.
When we think of Stephens, immediately comes to mind what the great Nassim Nicholas Taleb calls the Intellectual Yet Idiot (IYI) class (https://medium.com/incerto/the-intellectual-yet-idiot-13211e2d0577#.kn5ignmkw) as in our ruling class of politicians, journalist and academics. The IYIs are those that control our media and government and we can identify every day by a list of easy to spot characteristics that the great Taleb describes for us: not being able to find a coconut in Coconut Island, being wrong about the imaginary WMDs of Iraq, supporting Gaddafi’s “removal”, always drinking red wine with meat (never white!), being wrong about the low carb diet, having the virtue of passing exams designed by people like them, and most important, never ever doing Dead Lift in the gym, are some of the key characteristics of IYIs.
Which bring us back to Stephens. He is the one that (despite being a “Republican” as in RINO Neocon) wanted Trump to get crushed by Hillary to teach a “lesson” to Trump supporters, aka the normal common sense people, the silent majority not poisoned by the Frankfurt School’ Cultural Marxism that dare to raise against the IYIs “recommendation”. This is something that old Rush did not like it very much: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCeWmwMCqrU
He is the same person who has been advocating to bomb Iran nuclear facilities for years and years (did I mention he was the Jerusalem Post editor and was rewarded with a Pulitzer?), got crushed when Trump won, and is on pure rage (with the McCains of the world) because Trump wants to stop pushing and financing color revolutions in Russia’s backyard.
Bret is the man who still today, with Iraqi Christian almost evaporated after being massacred for more than 13 years, ISIS still alive and kicking in Iraq, and hundreds of thousands dead, still defends the 2003 invasion of Iraq of the imaginary WMDs: http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/09/10/wsjs-bret-stephens-rewrites-history-of-iraq-war/195805 .
While Sean Hannity has strong words for Bret’s I.Q and vision (http://www.breitbart.com/video/2016/08/05/sean-hannity-wsjs-bret-stephens-dumbass-head-ass/) the same as Greg Landen ( http://scienceblogs.com/gregladen/2011/11/29/so-when-did-the-wall-street-jo/ ) I don’t really think that is the case. I don’t question Bret’s higher than average I.Q nor fine education (please keep in mind that most of the IYIs are highly educated people and are above average I.Q idiots).
The real problem with Stephens, like I always say in my intelligence analysis seminars and conferences, is ideology. Ideology as in defending absurd utopias and corrupting serious analysis based on Disneyland’s like dreams is the worst enemy of strategic level intelligence analysis and of course…common sense. Ideology is the great poison that destroys common sense as it plays with cognitive errors so typical in the intelligence community: mirror image, disregard for Analysis of Competing Hypothesis (ACH), accommodation of evidence into the wrong argument or hypothesis, and accommodate/spin conclusions to a poisoned worldview. This is how ideology corrupts the minds of professional intelligence analysts in real intelligence agencies and this is what makes the elitist IYIs of government, academia and journalism what they are. Actually the “I” of ideology is what makes the “I” of idiots as in “IYIs”.
And that is Bret Stephens! He is the one who wrote that John Kerry “always had a terrific soft spot” for Syria’s al-Assad, eighteen months after Kerry compared Assad to Hitler, the same that (like all elitist New Yorker’s IYIs) called for Trump’s defeat in the Never Trump Neocon wagon (http://nationalinterest.org/feature/neocons-trump-voters-drop-dead-17344) . And this is the same that now gives us the complete list of why the US should keep provoking Christian Russia into a fist fight that might end up in a possible nuclear war that will give us over 500 million dead and the end of the world as we know it (if any left at all).
Now, let see in detail his case to keep poking the Bear in the eye:
–1. Bret Stephens (B.S): Putin ordered a false flag terrorism act in Russia to promote himself as Yeltsin’s successor.
–REALITY: This conspiracy theory, based on “circumstantial evidence” as he admits in an interview, is the made of the same stuff as the ones that says that 9-11 was a Bush insider job, that no plane crashed in the Pentagon but a US missile did, etc. The only difference between one nonsense and the other nonsense is that if one nonsense helps to attack Putin, then that is a Neocon approved nonsense.
The 1999 bombings in Russia were an act of Islamic terrorism and somehow a residual of the old Soviet war against what later became and mutated into (regardless of the “experts” saying the contrary) the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The bombings were carried out by Chechen and Islamist terrorists and led by Achemez Gochiyaev, Ibn Al-Khattab and Abu Omar al-Saif and other jihadists. Al-Khattab, a Saudi veteran from the war in Afghanistan was invited by Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev to set up an army base in Chechnya for the training of Mujahedeen (Jihadists) fighters in 1995. According to the BBC, Al- Khattab’s posting to Chechnya had been arranged through the Saudi-Arabian based Islamic Relief Organization.
In an interview published in AP in September 15 1999, Al-Khattab said that “From now on, we will not only fight against Russian fighter jets and tanks. From now on, they will get our bombs everywhere. Let Russia await our explosions blasting through their cities. I swear we will do it.”
The conspiracy theory that Stephens defends is mostly based on allegations from Putin’s archenemy, the late Boris Berezoysky. According to researcher Gordon Bennett, the conspiracy theory has no base and Berezovsky nor his team (which included Alexander Litvinenko) provided any evidence to support it. In a TV interview of May 2002, Berezovsky was also unable to present any evidence for his claims. Additionally, Berezovsky didn’t come to the conclusion that the FSB were responsible for the bombings until about a year after they had occurred, at about the same time that he also saw that Putin had the support of the most of the FSB as presidential candidate.
Mike Bowker, from the University of East Anglia, also said that the theory that the bombings were carried out by the Russian authorities is uncorroborated by evidence. According to Bowker, the theory also ignores the history of Chechen terrorism and public threats by various Chechen rebels following their defeat in Dagestan – which included al Khattab telling a Czech and a German newspaper, a few days before the bombings in Moscow, that “Russian women and children will pay for the crimes of Russian generals … this will not happen tomorrow, but the day after tomorrow”. Conspiracy theorists and the Neocons. like Stephens, that support them (because of ideology) ignore the key fact that Putin’s attack on Chechnya in 1999 was preceded by a Chechen insurrection in Dagestan.
–2. BS: Putin ordered the dead by polonium poisoning of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko and this is proven by an inquiry.
–REALITY: Unless the official inquiry has access to Putin’s private phone line or someone in the inner circle of Putin turned and talked about it to the “inquirers”, it has no way in the world to know that Putin was behind it, knew about it, or much less ordered it (the same goes with the declassified report that Obama ordered his political appointees to release on January 6 to delegitimize Trump, just days before leaving office; if no phone interception nor someone in his inner circle talking there is no way to know Putin was behind it).
The official “inquiry” made by British Neocons has no base to point to Putin without any of those 2 elements. It is probable it was payback from isolated FSB ex comrades that felt betrayed by his treason and turn.
–3. BS: Russian intelligence services hacked the emails of members of Germany’s Parliament.
–REALITY: Surprise! Intelligence services specialist in SIGINT intercept emails and phones just as Angela Merkel’s telephone well knows: http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/cover-story-how-nsa-spied-on-merkel-cell-phone-from-berlin-embassy-a-930205.html . Apparently, Bret is not aware of what intelligence agencies do and what their mission is.
–4. BS: Russia’s intelligence services are trying to influence politics in the West…as per the European intelligence services.
–REALITY: Since the Brexit and Trump’s victory, the IYI political class of the Voltairian West is in desperation trying to find a scape goat for their defeats and trying with urgency to prevent more defeats. They see in the Russian services a perfect scape goat and bogeyman to scare the public. Keep in mind the “intelligence” reports on Iraq’s imaginary WMDs courtesy of political manipulation by neocons. Prediction: once the non IYIs take power in those countries, their intelligence services will change those assessments.
Furthermore, if a country is “bad” because it uses soft power to provoke regime change, then Bret Stephens is in trouble as he will be in shock once he finds out what he needs to know about Victoria Nuland and the illegal 2014 Coup against the democratically elected government in Ukraine (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-26079957 ) and of course not to mention color revolutions and regime change as something that the great Pat Buchanan is very familiar with:
“While U.S.-funded democracy promotion is portrayed as benign, the National Endowment for Democracy, the International Republican Institute, DNI and Freedom House have been linked to revolutions that brought down regimes in Serbia, Ukraine, Georgia, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, and nearly succeeded in Belarus.
People who pride themselves on bringing about revolutions should not whine when targeted regimes treat them like troublemakers. And who directs these “pro-democracy” groups? …. The IRI is chaired by John McCain, who pushed for U.S. intervention in the Russia-Georgia war and is clamoring for air strikes on Syria. The DNI chairman is ex-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who says: “We are the indispensable nation. We stand tall, and we see further than other countries into the future.” (http://buchanan.org/blog/outside-agitators-5607 )
–5. BS: Solely because of “greed” Putin ordered taking control of the assets of Yukos and sent Mikhail Khodorkovsky to prison.
–REALITY: After the collapse of the Soviet Union, during the semi anarchy days of Yeltsin, a class of oligarchs was born in Russia who took control of the country’s natural resources, exploiting them for pure greed with complete disregard for the future of the country and in connection with those that wanted a weak and defeated Russia. Those vampires like oligarchs took advantage of the lawless times of Yeltsin to steal as much as they could and even befriended Russia’s enemies in order to dismantle and destroy what remained of Russia as a functioning state. Putin placed a full stop to that vampire style capitalism.
About Khodorkovsky: he paid $309 million for Yukos and a few years later in 2003 the same company was assessed as worth more than $30 billion…
Khodorkovsky built some impressive ties in the West. He set up a foundation modeled on US billionaire George Soros’ Open Society and invited Henry Kissinger and Jacob Rothschild to its board. He also developed ties with some of the most powerful circles in Washington DC where he befriended Cold War like Neocons. Some analysts say he was planning on taking over the Duma in 2004 by using his enormous wealth in order to change Russian laws regarding ownership of oil in the ground and of pipelines transporting same. He was at the time of his arrest for tax crimes, in the process of negotiating the sale of 40% of Yukos to foreign companies to dealt a crippling blow to the one asset left to Putin in order to rebuild Russia: oil and export via state-owned pipelines to the West. While he served many years of his sentence for tax related crimes, Putin ended up giving him a Presidential pardon and now he lives in Switzerland where he is an anti-Putin political activist.
–6. B.S: Again, out of pure greed, Putin ordered the government to take control of Shell’s $20 billion gas project on Sakhalin Island and in 2008, Bob Dudley, was run out of Russia.
–REALITY: Once again, Putin was determined to rebuild Russia’s catastrophic kind of economy with the most likely asset of the country, as in oil and export via state-owned pipelines to the West for dollars. Foreign owned companies controlling Russia’s oil were a show stopper to Russia’s resurrection from its ashes.
Shell had a large project in Sakhalin Island and the Russian government wanted most of the shares of the project (at that time owned at 55% by Shell). At one point, the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources sided with the Sakhalin Island environmentalists, pointing to irregularities as in environmental regulations, revoking permits and delaying work on twin 400-mile pipelines with a threat of a $50 billion lawsuit. After renegotiation of the ownership and removing the environmentalists restrictions, Shell got it shares reduced from 55% to 27.5%.
About Dudley: In 2003, he became CEO of TNK-BP, a joint venture with Russian company AAR. Over the years, tensions mounted between BP and the Russians as the Russians wanted higher returns on their investment, while BP wanted to invest more profit back into the company. It became a power struggle and in July 2008 Dudley fled the country. His visa was set to expire, and it seemed that the Russians weren’t keen on renewing. In September, BP and the Russians signed a deal agreeing that Dudley would be out as CEO. The move, along with other provisions of the agreement, put the venture into Russian control.
–7. B.S: Rex Tillerson (Trump Secretary of State designee) supports removing the sanctions to Russia and recognizing its territorial “conquests” in Ukraine in exchange for a Russian promise not to invade NATO member states.
–REALITY: Yes, Tillerson is not a warmonger Russophobe and that has the Neocons IYIs infuriated. Yes, Trump will remove the sanctions and there is nothing the Neocons can do about it. And NO, Russia will not invade NATO countries because NATO has a stronger conventional military force, and it might very fast escalate to a nuclear war that would destroy the world as we know it with hundreds of millions dead. And yes, Russia wants the world to know that Crimea is theirs, the Black Sea Fleet is not going anywhere, and no NATO conventional forces will ever be stationed in Ukraine, next to Russia’s sensitive territorial areas (reason why Russia needs at all cost, and is willing to sacrifice a lot in order to keep Ukraine acting as buffer against conventional NATO land forces).
–8. B.S: Putin said in 2013 that foreign intervention in Syria was bad, but 2 years later Russia intervened in Syria, therefore, Putin cannot be trusted.
–REALITY: In 2013 Putin (this is so kindergarten level simple!!) was talking about U.S strikes AGAINST the Syrian Government made of Alawites, Shias and many Christians groups. A strike that could bring the government down and promote the total victory of the Syrian Sunni jihadists with the respective massacre of Alawites, Christians and Shias, the takeover by jihadists of the Syrian arsenal of chemical weapons, place Israel in existential danger (via those weapons), and give dangerous chemical weapons to potential European based terrorists. In 2015 Russia acted in Syria to SUPPORT the government of Alawites and many Christians groups (NOT to destroy it), and kill the radical Islamist jihadists, both the “free” and independent ones (ISIS and AQ branch) and the ones that work for the Sunni Gulf countries (please keep in mind that the so called “moderates” rebels are a psyops press plant and a non-existing myth; they just don’t exist like a functional relevant force in the ground). As simple as that.
Again, common sense is the worst enemy of intelligence analysis, and common sense is the IYIs worst disease and weakness just like Superman’s kryptonite.
In 2013 Putin wrote in the New York times:
“The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance…Syria is not witnessing a battle for democracy, but an armed conflict between government and opposition in a multi religious country. There are few champions of democracy in Syria. But there are more than enough al Qaeda fighters and extremists of all stripes battling the government. The United States State Department has designated Al Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, fighting with the opposition, as terrorist organizations. This internal conflict, fueled by foreign weapons supplied to the opposition, is one of the bloodiest in the world. Mercenaries from Arab countries fighting there, and hundreds of militants from Western countries and even Russia, are an issue of our deep concern. Might they not return to our countries with experience acquired in Syria?”
By the contrary, as result of Russian pro government intervention, the Sunni jihadists and mercenaries are defeated in Aleppo, the perspective of Christians being massacred is lower than ever, and the Cathedral of Aleppo just had the first open and public Christmas mass in years.
Yes, a 1972 Volkswagen Bug and a 2017 Ferrari are both cars. But there are cars and there are CARS. Yes, there are “foreign interventions” and there are FOREIGN INTERVENTIONS.
–9. B.S: In March 2014 Russian defense minister Shoigu told the U.S Defense Secretary that Russian military exercises would not lead to an invasion of eastern Ukraine but crossed the border later that year, therefore Russia cannot be trusted.
–REALITY: “Crossing the border” vs invasion is the key here. The Russian military did not conduct an invasion of Eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian Army is no match for Russian forces. If Russia wants to invade Ukraine it will take Kiev in 2 weeks. Ukraine would be completely defeated and the Ukrainian Army crushed. Russia did not invade Easter Ukraine like Stephens suggests. Russia sent logistics and advisors to ethnic Russians in Eastern Ukraine that were fighting against the Ukrainian military and civilian militias. (Please look as the cars vs CARS example in the B.S number 8 above).
Additionally, Bret forgets that in December 2013 Putin signed an agreement with the democratically elected President of Ukraine, Yanukovych, establishing a lower gas price and a multibillion dollar loan. Still the Coup organizers (plus the ones who coordinated, promoted and funded them) did not accept that and carried on their illegal coup in February 2014, reason why the Russian military was training there in March in the first place.
–10. And the final B.S: In 1987 Russia signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty but in October 2016 the U.S. accused Russia of producing a cruise missile in violation of the agreement. Therefore, Russia cannot be trusted.
–REALITY: Both sides has accused each other of violating the Treaty first (BTW It was the Soviet Union back in 1987, but ok, Russia is following the Soviet Union commitments of the past). According to Russia the other side broke the Treaty first and they just answered by developing the new missile.
The Russian position is that NATO violated the Treaty first by deploying Aegis Ashore missiles in Romania, and soon in Poland as well. These missile uses the naval Mk-41 launching system, which is capable of firing long-range cruise missiles. Mk-41s deployed in Europe may launch short and intermediate range cruise missiles deep into Russian territory. Russia has also said that armed drones violate the treaty and a NATO plan to arm tactical aviation in Europe with modernized B61-12 guided warheads will virtually nullify the Treaty as the aircraft could fly from bases in Lithuania, Estonia and Poland to Russia’s largest cities in 15-20 minutes. What B.S needs to research is not what kind of violation Russia did, but WHO began the violations.
Conclusion: As I am enjoying my semi-retirement in Europe, had been out of the game as in the CIA and the Pentagon for some time now, and have other issues and family to attend, I really don’t have a lot of time for B.S.
That is why I only can recommend him to study a basic law of nature: action/reaction. He has to understand that kicking a man down has consequences once the man stands up again.
Russia, the Third Rome (hopefully Bret would know what I mean, as Catholic with Faith in Fatima, with that) was occupied by Communists for many decades, became the center of evil in the world, and was the natural enemy of the free world. When it got rid of evil Communism, Russia went down into extreme poverty and desperation in the nineties. Instead of helping it to stand up again, now without the Communist poison, many countries, kicked it while down, inflicting pains and humiliations that are fresh in the memory of millions.
Now that Russia is no longer Communist but is at high speed finding its Christian roots once again (tip: read the brilliant article by Pat Buchanan “Whose Side is God now” – http://buchanan.org/blog/whose-side-god-now-6337 -) there is no reason why truly Christian Western countries (not those occupied by Godless globalist Cultural Marxists) can be good friends and partners with Russia. Keeping the mentality of the Cold War and Russophobia alive now that is in no way needed, is a mental illness IYIs Neocons must to get rid of, even if it means shock therapy.
Again, B.S can perhaps begin with the great Buchanan’s article on who began Cold War II (http://buchanan.org/blog/pjb-who-started-cold-war-ii-1048 ) and continue with refreshing Justin Logan’s “Can Neocons Learn?” (http://reason.com/archives/2014/12/08/can-neocons-learn ) and James Carden’s article on anti-Russia Hysteria (http://www.globalresearch.ca/hillary-clintons-exploits-in-mccarthyism/5555969 ).
The point is that the world is moving away from globalist Cultural Marxists as the Frankfurt School is beginning to fall and many countries are divorcing from the menace that has been the rule of the Godless for decades. That is how I explain Trump´s victory as a cultural Counterrevolution that took 50 years in the making against the Frankfurt School but is finally happening (http://thedailyjournalist.com/the-historian/trump-the-frankfurt-school-and-the-counterrevolution-a-manifesto/ ).
That means that a new America, divorced from the New World Order, anathema to the Cultural Marxists of the Frankfurt School, will, under Trump fight for Christian Civilization once again; which means relations with Christian Russia, will improve and get healthier, to the dismay of both the Godless Cultural Marxists and the neocons hawks IYIs.
That is what Donald Trump explained via social media:
“Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only “stupid” people, or fools, would think that it is bad! We have enough problems around the world without yet another one. When I am President, Russia will respect us far more than they do now and both countries will, perhaps, work together to solve some of the many great and pressing problems and issues of the WORLD!”
And no: the hasty WMDs in Iraq like “Intelligence Report” that stated US Presidential elections happened on November 6 (not 8) and reported that Russia hacked into John Podesta’s email is not changing anything as it looks like a desperate attempt against the clock to publish whatever in order to delegitimize Trump just before Obama leaves office. Let’s see what future reports have to say 3 months after Trump has been in the White House. That, most likely, and with “high confidence” will not be B.S.
Comments Off on Ron Aledo on Bret Stephens’ How I Learned to Love Putin
By Roniel Aledo.
Trump’s victory is really an extraordinary event. It will be the subject of studies and research of political scientists, sociologists and academics for years to come. I supported Trump since the very beginning and most recently defended him in the Spanish national TV, radio and press (I am taking a few sabbatical years away from the Washington D.C jungle) against the rage of left wing politicians and journalists alike.
In my view, there are very deep and complex reasons that explain why Trump won. The immediate reason, and usually the only one that the main stream media can see, is related to economics. Trump is going to overthrow Obamacare and renegotiate trade deals to bring back home jobs. That is, according to the press, the key reason why white blue collar workers voted for Trump. But for those who can see beyond the obvious, that reason is only the tip of the iceberg (actually, a very big iceberg).
There is something else far more important –that very few can see–to explain Trump´s miraculous victory. And make no mistake, the fact that Trump won the Reagan Democrats, and got the Presidency after defeating the two major political parties (the Democratic Party and establishment ¨Bushites¨ Neocons of the Republican one) and the most vicious, furious and sick attack from the main stream media ever seen in the history of the world, is nothing short of a miracle (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/nov/10/trump-and-clinton-voters-showed-wide-gap-in-views-/ ).
The key issue beyond what the left wing main stream media can see is that Trump was able to win a lot more than just the blue-collar workers. Trump won the Silent Majority of the country, a whole segment of the population that have been forgotten, humiliated, persecuted, mocked by the white-collar elites of the big cities, the sick propaganda of the main stream media, and to the left of Gramsci producers, actors and stars of Hollywood and pop culture. Trump won because he got on his side a big segment of the population that has been under furious and brutal attack for more than 50 years by the political correctness of Cultural Marxism. This cultural and sociological attack from Cultural Marxists was extremely intense and conducted at full high speed for the last 8 years of the Obama´s regime with its grand social engineering and cultural re-make of the country.
What we saw in Trump´s victory is real movement, a true Counterrevolution against Cultural Marxism and the Frankfurt School. A rebel population that finally rose against the ¨Gestapo of Thought¨ and Obama’s brutal Dictatorship of Political Correctness; the same one that transformed large parts of the U.S by imposing its new dogmas by the way of the hammer and the new cultural Totalitarianism.
To fully understand how the ¨Gestapo of Thought¨, the Dictatorship of Political Correctness came to control the media, academia, arts and society of the U.S and the West we need to look into history. At the beginning of the XX Century many communists saw with frustration that there were no spontaneous revolutions as they have predicted. Italian communist Antonio Gramsci came with an explanation of why the revolutions were not happening. Gramsci said that the big firewall against revolution was Western Christian Culture as a whole. That is, that the Natural Law or Natural Order of things we preventing the uprising: men were behaving like men, women were behaving like women, believe in God was the general rule, most were sure the Christian religion was the true one and all others false, empires were proud of their history and actions, the British Empire was proud of itself, Spain was proud of having produced a New World, and the West as a whole was proud of its culture on all its forms, from Beethoven to Mendel, from Mozart to Volta, from Pasteur to Copernicus, from Newton to Raphael, from Bach to Michael Angelo, from Cervantes to Verne, etc., etc. That cultural and social order was to Gramsci the big show stopper for revolution.
To destroy that Natural Law or Order established by Western Christian civilization, Gramsci suggested a “long march” or “long way” in which Marxists would have to destroy the culture of the West by turning upside down values and convictions of what is “good” and what is “evil”, what is “pretty” and what is “ugly”, revert and turn upside down the Christian society, and then bring the revolution. Gramsci said that only by destroying the traditional culture of the West from within, would the revolution be possible.
Then in 1923 in Frankfurt Germany the Institute for Social Research was established. This Institute, better known today as the Frankfurt School, was financed in large part by Felix Weil and its first official appointed director was Carl Grünberg. In 1930, Max Horkheimer succeeded Grünberg. The purpose of the Frankfurt School was to promote Gramsci’s ideas and to develop a practical strategy to carry out Gramsci’s plan to destroy Western Christian culture. About this Georg Lukacs wrote:
“I saw the revolutionary destruction of society as the one and only solution to the cultural contradictions of the epoch…. Such a worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values and the creation of new ones by the revolutionaries.”
Other communist thinkers were also part of this effort: Adorno, Marcuse, Fromm, Benjamin, etc. Immediately the School was a great success and it began to influence first the German society and then the whole Western society and culture. The decadence of the “crazy” Twenties were both the delight of indirect result of the Frankfurt School. But the grand plan to destroy the Traditional Culture of the Christian West came to a sudden stop by the Great Depression first and by the Second World War later.
It was only in the 60s when a new generation of young naive people was ready to continue the revolution of the twenties. This young naïve generation did not know the Great Depression nor the World War and was easy prey to the revolutionaries that wanted to brainwash them in order to destroy Western Christian culture by turning it upside down. In that way, the 60s became the decade on which the Frankfurt School exploded with incredible success all the way until our days.
Once the grand strategy, developed from Gramsci at the Frankfurt School, left the University classroom and began to guide the culture, arts, media, public children´s education, entertainment, movies, etc., etc., it became what we know as Cultural Marxism. The “long road” of Gramsci finally became the actual agenda of society as he wanted and the product and creation of the Frankfurt School became the general rule of the West.
By the sixties many of the Frankfurt School founders were in the U.S poisoning American Universities. For many years, most of the Frankfurt School founders were teaching at Columbia University in New York and while some returned to Germany others stayed in the U.S to carry on its mission to transform the culture and values of the U.S. In that way, Marcuse’s work “Eros and Civilization” became the doctrinal foundation of the Hippie movement, a counter culture of its own. Marcuse also switched the strategy of Cultural Marxism and placed as its key objective to brainwash young university students of middle and high class (the foundation of the white collar left wing voters of today’s big cities).
Also, Max Horkheimer, paraphrasing the “Critical Theory”, stated that the way to destroy Western Christian civilization was attacking all values associated with it, and for example defending the destruction of marriage with children as foundation of the family, saying that “marriage” can be any kind of relationship as far as there was sexual attraction and without any specific end on itself. Likewise, Fromm stated that “male” and “female” in humans were not a reflection of biology but an imposition due to the ¨oppressive¨ culture dominated by heterosexuals.
By getting out of the classroom and guiding all aspects of Western Culture, from Hollywood to the News, from the concept of “art” to general education, from media and reporters to pop music stars, Cultural Marxism began to destroy all values of Western Christian society and to redefine the concepts of “good” or “bad” and “pretty” and “ugly”. In its main effort, Cultural Marxism told the world the notion that Western European/Christian people with traditional values were “evil” by nature and the responsible of all “oppression”. The Cultural Marxists also stated that the “good” people by nature were those of a cultural, religious, ethnic, origin other than Western Christian European, together with those minorities that had values contrary to the Traditional Christian ones: all ethnic minorities, homosexuals, immigrants from the third world, Muslims, “scientific” atheists (today the “new atheist movement” of chic elitist millennials), feminists, all non-Christians, etc.
The Cultural Marxism that exploded with amazing success in the 60s until our days and came to dominate the culture, and finally the governments of the West, was not content with re-define who were “good” and “evil” by nature, but also advocated for a brutal censorship, that later became our present-day savage ¨Gestapo of Thought¨ and Dictatorship of Political Correctness.
In his essay ¨Repressive Tolerance¨, Marcuse depicted the foundation of the Political Correctness that has devastated the Western Christian world:
“Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope of this tolerance and intolerance: … it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word… Consequently, true pacification requires the withdrawal of tolerance before the deed, at the stage of communication in word, print, and picture.”
And furthermore in 1968, Marcuse established the rule of what became our current day witch-hunt for those new ¨heretics¨ who want to keep and live traditional values with common sense:
“Given this situation, I suggested in Repressive Tolerance the practice of discriminating tolerance in an inverse direction, as a means of shifting the balance between Right and Left by restraining the liberty of the Right…and strengthening the oppressed against the oppressor . . . Such discrimination would also be applied to movements opposing the extension of social legislation to the poor, weak, disabled.”
Marcuse knew well the importance of language in his master program of subversion. The meaning of words must be destabilized and eradicated. If you can convince women that abortion is all about “choice,” and not about killing a baby, it’s much easier to legalize abortion. If you can get people to refer to homosexuality as an issue of “equality” for “gays” (not homosexuals as in the clinical word for a mental disorder) and not the subversion of the family, you can legalize homosexual “marriage” a lot easier. The goal, according to Marcuse, is to “break the established universe of meaning.” In that way, Marcuse placed the foundation of what is today´s brutal and savage witch hunt, the Gestapo of Political Correctness that burns without mercy the “heretics” that dare defend common sense.
What came after this was the and amazing and complete reverse of common sense and Natural Law:
–First, there was support for Natural Order/Common Sense and rejection of the Subversion of Nature/Frankenstein Engineering,
–then came being indifferent to the Natural Order/ Common Sense, and being indifferent towards Subversion of Nature/Frankenstein Engineering,
–that was followed by to suppression of Natural Order/Common Sense, and defense of Subversion of Nature/Frankenstein Engineering,
— finally came the outlaw of Natural Order/Common Sense and establish as mandatory the Subversion of Nature/Frankenstein Engineering, as in a ¨crime¨ to talk or thought against it.
That is the sad and terrible reality that today’s pseudo West gives us: those who espouse “heretical ideas” (Christian and Traditional Western Values) must be destroyed; they must lose their jobs, their reputations, and their places in the public square, get fined by ¨hate speech¨ or ¨discrimination¨ or even go to jail. The notion of “shaming” to the point of personal destruction seems a principal modus operandi of today political correctness in the Cultural Marxist Frankenstein like ¨paradise¨ of the urban U.S and the European Union. And while today, Cultural Marxism, does not aim to bring communism like in the old good days, today its purpose is actually to create that Frankenstein ¨paradise¨ without God, without family, without traditional gender roles, without protection of Western history and arts, without the God given Natural Law.
And this amazing but terrible victory of the Frankfurt School and its creation, the Cultural Marxism that today rules almost every aspect of Western education, culture, society and government, brings us back to Trump, as during the last 8 years of Obama´s regime, he placed in ¨ ultra-warp¨ speed the expansion of and depth of this cultural revolution.
For this reason, Trump’s victory is not only an incredible miracle as he won basically against all and everything, from CNN to furious non stopping (and something ridiculous) attacks from the Washington Post, the New York Times, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Hollywood, 90% of all U.S and European journalists, the establishment of both the Democratic and Republican parties and millions of brainwashed naive Millennials; but furthermore, Trump’s victory is a real Counterrevolution of the Silent Majority against the brutality of the witch hunt of Cultural Marxism and Political Correctness.
As perhaps Obama did more in moving forward the brutality of Political Correctness in 8 years than the last 20 years. In this same time-period, of course the Voltaire like Europe regime known as European Union followed their leader, the U.S, because as we say “monkey see monkey do”. Obama’s Frankenstein like engineering of the U.S society, sickening to the point of nausea, was finally met, in Trump´s victory, with rejection from those who still have common sense, want to live under Natural Law and traditional values.
Those who voted for Trump want to say and think as their parents and grandparents did, and were just sick of the big “Hammer” of the Thought Gestapo (those brainwashed by Cultural Marxism in the big cities, elites of Hollywood and the mainstream media). Those who Obama mocked in 2008 in western Pennsylvania because they “clinch to their Bibles and their guns” had finally their sweet revenge with Donald Trump. Those who Obama mocked in 2008, finally saw in Trump a person who was saying what everyone think and want to say, but don’t do it because of the ¨Thought Gestapo¨. Dozens of millions of “deplorables” as Hillary called them, finally got a voice who spoke for them, their parents, their grandparents, and the traditional way of life under common sense and Natural Law.
That Silent Majority, the simple people who live away from the Frankfurt School dictatorship of the large ghetto cities, were desperate for someone who would speak for them and to them. That people, free from the viral infection of Cultural Marxism of the big cities, wanted to keep their traditional lifestyle and were sick tired of the fecal like products that the TV networks, Hollywood, the media, the pop culture kept launching at them.
This simple people with common sense were tired of Black Lives Matter, “happy holidays” instead of Merry Christmas, ugly short hair and shirtless women protesting for their ¨right¨ to kill babies, Lady Gaga, the so called gay pride parades of naked men walking in the streets, the Modern Family t.v show, CNN reporters trying to brainwash them, the removal of crosses and Nativities scenes, Miley Cyrus, and the feminine looking young men in the streets among others.
This was the ¨common sense people¨ who did not understand why they could not call illegal immigrant an illegal immigrant, radical Islamic terrorist a radical Islamic terrorist, why suddenly all religions (including the scientism based pseudo religion of the “scientific” Atheists) were suddenly “good” and Christianism suddenly “bad”.
This is the same people who never understood what in the heck is a ¨Kwanzaa¨, and the same people of the Silent Majority that will never allow (gun in hand) a man to wear lipstick, self-proclaim himself a “woman” and walk into the girl’s restroom to show his very masculine genitals to 7 years old girls.
This is the same people that don’t understand how can it be that what is in the Bible, has been the rule of mankind for a few thousand years, and their parents told them, is now one of the multiple “phobias” and ¨hates¨ of which Hollywood and the Media are obsessed with.
In this sense, I truly believe that Trump means a real Counterrevolution against the Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxism. A revolution that took 50 years to advance but is finally here. That is why the great Christian historian H. W Crocker stated that Trump is a true exorcist of politically correctness (https://stream.org/church-historian-trump-is-a-political-exorcist/ ). And that is also why in a truly bright article Blaise Joseph said that Trump was most likely a new Constantine (https://www.mercatornet.com/articles/view/is-trump-the-new-constantine/17800 )
as he might be the only one who can really help Christianism with his policies, not only in the U.S but in the whole Western world.
And of course, Blaise Joseph said that knowing very well that Trump has never been a devout Christian and to the contrary always had fame as womanizer playboy. But that is exactly why Joseph compares him with Constantine, as the Emperor was not Christian (not until his dead bed) and still was the person who most supported Christians by giving them freedom from persecution.
Also, the amazing miraculous victory of Trump is the reason why the Cultural Marxist world is today desperate and furious. The Trump Counterrevolution and the Brexit has globalists of the N.W.O alarmed and frustrated. In desperation now they are threating of curbing whatever the little of what is left of Free Speech in the Voltaire like Utopia known as European Union, and the globalists in the UK are now going after the patriots of Britain First, a pro-European and anti Cultural Marxist movement (https://www.britainfirst.org/ ).
The persecution of patriotic anti Cultural Marxists movements in the U.K calls to mind the very wise words of Nassim Nicholas Taleb, who like the true genius that he is, introduced us to the Intellectual Yet Idiot (IYI) class (https://medium.com/@nntaleb/the-intellectual-yet-idiot-13211e2d0577#.n8vltu5tt ). The great Taleb tells us that IYIs are the dominant class in politics and are made of those people who among other things “can’t find a coconut in Coconut Island… but their main skills is capacity to pass exams written by people like them.”
And Taleb also explains us the rage of the elitists who rule the Voltaire like monster when people act according to their interest; like the slap in the face Nigel Farage’s UKIP gave to the globalists IYIs with the Brexit (http://www.ukip.org/ ). The more than brilliant Taleb says: “He thinks people should act according to their best interests and he knows their interests, particularly if they are “red necks” or English non-crisp-vowel class who voted for Brexit. When Plebeians do something that makes sense to them, but not to him, the IYI uses the term “uneducated”. What we generally call participation in the political process, he calls by two distinct designations: “democracy” when it fits the IYI, and “populism” when the plebeians dare voting in a way that contradicts his preferences.”
Sadly, as Trump’s victory and the Brexit produced sound defeats for the the Cultural Marxists, we should now be ready for the Cultural Marxist’s brutal persecution to unleash upon all of those who want to keep living under old fashion Common Sense, tradition and Natural Law; that means all of us who reject Cultural Marxism’s Frankenstein anti-Christian, anti-Western, anti-Nature, fake society. As a recent example of this we can see how very probably the CIA was once again manipulated by the Politicians (Obama in this case) to launch an attack on Trump. As great ¨coincidence¨, just a few days away from the Electoral College vote, the CIA released (or purposely leaked) a document (that allegedly) states that a Russia´s hack was behind the Podesta´s email that Wikileaks distributed. While usually those documents take dozens of years of being declassify and available to the public, we question how come this one was declassified within a few weeks and precisely a few days away from the Electoral College vote (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4022056/FBI-official-challenges-CIA-s-claim-Putin-led-hackers-wanted-Donald-President-shocking-meeting.html ).
While the big persecution unleash we still can celebrate the taste of victory and its immediate consequences; beginning with the wise choices of Trump’s nominees: a great champion of Christian values and anti-abortion advocate (Jeff Sessions) as Attorney General, a Catholic and defender of Western civilization (Stephen Bannon) as White House strategist, a pro-life advocate (Nikki Haley) as United Nations ambassador, a devout Greek Orthodox Christian (Reince Priebus) as White House Chief of Staff, a conservative Presbyterian (Tom Price) as head of the Department of Health; additionally a conservative military hero (Gen. James “mad dog” Mattis) as Secretary of Defense, and LTG Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor.
The fact that Obama forced LTG Flynn, a hero of U.S military and strategic intelligence, out as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (place that I love as I worked there almost 3 years as senior contractor intelligence analyst) because the General told Obama in his face that his Syrian policy was a nonsense below kindergarten level. This because most the aid Obama was sending there to the so called “moderates” was ending up in the hands of the Sunni Jihadists (both the independent Jihadist of ISIS and AQ and the under Saudi Arabia Jihadists), and because the “moderates” were after all just an imaginary entity and hoax like the Yeti or monster of Loch Ness, (and no, the last minute British and US effort to train and arm a few hundreds of ¨moderates¨ this late in the game does not count as it is irrelevant and null).
Also with LTG Flynn as National Security Advisor we can rest assure that the Trump administration will not fail into any insane policy in Syria like the one that Hillary Clinton, –the Witch Hilaria as Juan Manuel de Prada, the best writer of today´s Spain calls her (http://www.abc.es/lasfirmasdeabc/20150802/abci-bruja-hilaria-201508020235.html ) — was advocating with the No Fly Zone to take down Russian planes and most likely begin a Nuclear WWIII in the process (like General Dunford, the Chairman of the Joint Staff said recently to Congress). With Trump´s victory the risk of confrontation and even of an Apocalyptic Nuclear war with Russia are suddenly reduced. After all Russia is really destroying terrorists in Syria and defending the Christian community there. In addition, Russia is transforming itself again into a Christian nation, a true Third Rome, that is divorced from the New World Order. Therefore, with that in mind, there is no reason why Trump’s America and Christian Russia should not be good friends and cooperate to finish terrorist and work to avoid nuclear war. (Recommend the brilliant article from the great Pat Buchanan, Whose Side is God Now, http://buchanan.org/blog/whose-side-god-now-6337 , to understand this incredible phenomenon. )
Even more immediate and clear, Trump will save the U.S Supreme Court from Cultural Marxists. As the 9 for life Supreme Court judges have an incredible power to set the path of the country this is of extraordinary importance. With judge Antonin Scalia (a traditionalist devout Catholic) dead, and the soon to retire, and also Catholic and conservative, Clearance Thomas, the Court will soon have 2 vacant seats that the Hillary would fill with fanatics of Cultural Marxism. Trump already promised to fill the vacant with pro-life, pro-family, pro religious freedom judges and even provided a list of possible candidates to the joy of Christian Traditionalists.
At this point in time we can only hope for the Counterrevolution to become stronger. With Orban in Hungary divorcing himself more and more from the Cultural Marxist NWO, Putin in Russia establish Christianism, Farage´s Brexit and the patriots of the Britain First fighting the good fight in the U.K, Santigo Abascal´s Vox party in Spain trying to awake its own Silent Majority, Le Pen in France bringing hope to a morally and culturally devastated nation, we can only hope that the new Trump era would really be a Providential gift of Counterrevolution; an expected Restauration.

By Ron Aledo.
All countries have Contingency Plans for almost any possible situation (the US Army trains for a Zombie like Apocalyptic situation in Indiana for example). Of course Russia since long time had a Contingency Plan for Crimea just in case the West took over the Central Government in Kiev. But the facts demonstrate that it was just that: a contingency plan, a Plan B. Russia’s PLAN A was to solve the Ukrainian crisis without violence and without taking Crimea but only by diplomacy. The Coup forced PLAN B and Russia executed its contingency plan:
—The irrefutable fact is that in 17 DECEMBER 2013 Putin and the democratically elected President Yanukovych of Ukraine signed a bi lateral agreement that would provide Ukraine with money and cheap gas prices ( http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-25411118 )
—-The irrefutable fact as per the 17 DECEMBER 2013 agreement is that Russia did not want to initiate a war in Ukraine nor take by force the Crimea
—The irrefutable fact is that for months several countries funded, organized, promoted, pushed, supported an illegal COUP against the democratically elected government of Ukraine by paying protestors paying for food, providing communications, organizing and coaching the leaders of the protests, providing funds to support thousands of protestors for months and even paying salaries for professional protestors and their leaders
—-The irrefutable fact is that by pushing an illegal COUP against the Democratically elected government of Ukraine, the many countries that organized and promoted that COUP, ended the 17 DECEMBER 2013 political and economical agreement that Russia and Ukraine signed
—The irrefutable fact is that by promoting and sponsoring an illegal COUP against the Democratically elected government of Ukraine, and ending the 17 DECEMBER 2013 political agreement between Russia and Ukraine, those COUP sponsors PUSHED Russia to a PLAN B: taking Crimea and promoting armed resistance in Eastern Ukraine
—The irrefutable fact is that the sponsors of the illegal COUP against the Democratically elected government of Ukraine, killed Putin’s PLAN A (the 17 DECEMBER 2013 Agreement) and pushed Putin to a PLAN B (Crimea and Eastern Ukraine)
—The irrefutable fact is that several countries had as primary mission and objective to push, promote, organize, and sponsor the illegal COUP against the DEMOCRATICALLY elected government of Ukraine (As per the Victoria Nuland Coup coordination call with Geoffrey Pyatt http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-26079957 )
—–The Intelligence Assumption using Analysis of Competing Hypothesis (ACH) is that Russia will avoid a military invasion of the Baltics as that means WAR with NATO that has far superior conventional military power and it is an EXTREMELY dangerous course of action that might result in military or economic catastrophe as well as Nuclear War
—–The Intelligence Assumption using Analysis of Competing Hypothesis (ACH) is that BEFORE Russia invades the Baltics (Go to war with NATO) an extreme provocation from a Western country (or countries) will have to occur: another sponsored COUP in a Russian friendly country , bringing Ukraine into NATO, crushing Eastern Ukraine rebels by providing offensive weapons to the Ukrainian regime, kicking Russia out of the world banking system SWIFT, etc., etc., etc. Only after a major geopolitical provocation that test the limits of Russia, would Russia launch an invasion of the Baltics, an extremely dangerous gamble.
—–The Intelligence Assumption using Analysis of Competing Hypothesis (ACH) is that IF Russia invades the Baltics THEN a similar Georgia 2008 scenario will be the MOST LIKELY:
Russia takes the Baltics…Russia is in War with NATO, ( that Russia –NATO war will look like the French/German front in late 1939 and early 1940 with war but no real action), ….NATO will NOT launch a massive military counteroffensive nor attack Russia proper because of the high RISK to escalate to NUCLEAR War,…. and finally desperate Diplomatic efforts by Germany, France, Italy, etc (the big pragmatic countries) will bring a Diplomatic END to that war…., Russia will retreat from the Baltics after days or weeks after the initial invasion….ENDEX
