Big Mike Obama
Would like to be the next US President.
It’s the Russian Way
Stalin often killed his foreign spies when they returned to the USSR. Today, Putin follows that example. The lessons are not mysterious to Russians and I find it strange that they still going along with the program. The answer may be a type of fatalism that often accompanies the Russian mindset.
Going back in time over 100 years now, Russian Bolsheviks built a cross-border network of undercover agents that spanned many countries and ethnicities and had various funding sources. The dedication and discipline they achieved—considering this was not a classic clan-based or ethnic criminal structure—was astounding. This clandestine structure called RSDLP was created to topple the Czar and snatch the state’s power. Once this was done in 1917, a new ambitious objective arose: a world revolution. In 1919, the Third (Communist) International was created to be the Bolsheviks’ global arm. From this, the Soviet rulers spun out the vast overseas network of OGPU/NKVD/MGB/KGB/GRU agents.
The scope and the logic of Soviet spy activity before and right after WW2 worked because they were not just spies. They were true believers in the coming revolution.
This created a problem for Stalin. (heavy is the head who wears the crown) If all the warriors of the Red Caliphate across the world are servants of the revolutionary idea, and not Stalin personally, what stops them from turning against him—if they decide he’s doing it all wrong?
There were a lot of competent, ferocious men in the service of Mother Russia. And Communists are an uneasy bunch. If you look at contemporary Communists they never seem to agree with each other about anything of substance. This propensity to quarrel among themselves gets stratospheric once they have weapons in their hands.
Trotsky criticized the USSR until he was killed (and silenced) in 1940 even though he was the only remaining hero of the 1917 revolution. At the darkest days of the Great Purges, he lambasted Stalin as a sellout and despot who betrayed Communism. Soviet agents abroad were not insulated from his propaganda as they would have been had they remained in a place impacted by Stalin’s censorship inside the USSR. They were out there far beyond his radar, year after year. The absolute majority of them didn’t owe Stalin anything. What if they were all tainted? What if they were all plotting against him as Bolsheviks had been once as they prepared the Czar’s demise?
Better safe than sorry. He called them back, one after one, and. had them shot and their bodies dumped. The durability and strength of his rule demonstrated that he was most probably right.
Below, Stalin, Molotov, and Kalinin with the top NKVD brass. How could he know for sure which of these people was going to betray him? He chose the safest way: removal with extreme prejudice.
** (Fox News) Members of the Biden family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Hunter Biden’s business associate Rob Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017, subpoenaed financial records obtained by the House Oversight Committee reveal.
** (Zerohedge) Ludwig von Mises wrote Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, a small book published in 1922, which demonstrated that economic calculation in a socialist commonwealth is impossible. Of course, Mises assumed that the purpose of an economy, even a socialist one, was supposed to produce goods and services, which determined its success or failure.
I’m not so sure that Russian Bolshevism WASN’T largely ethnic.
“If you look at contemporary Communists they never seem to agree with each other about anything of substance.”
‘Put three communists in a room and you’ll have five opinions.’ Paraphrased, I might have some of the details of that old saying wrong….
Paraphrased but gets the point across. Between that and the statement by modern day communists that communism is the best form of government despite all recent communist regimes being mass murderers it gives a pretty good outlook on what communism is really all about.
I don’t think that two people TODAY in a room could come to a consensus of what Russian Bolshevism IS (given that Russia isn’t a communist country and Leninism, Trotskyism, Stalinism, etc. morphed it substantially).
It’s never been done right.
Gee, paranoia and backstabbing part of the Russian soul? Yep. Doesn’t matter what type of -ism is the dominant -ism, still going to be paranoia and backstabbing, with the side dish of ‘kill the competent people because they’re a threat to me’ thrown in.
Russians as a people and culture make an interesting study. I’ve always gotten along with Russians that I’ve known. Then again I get along with most people from most cultures when we’re talking one-on-one. The Russian national character is largely misunderstood in the West and is predictable. Trump understood them and they understood him.
Big Mike doesn’t want to be President. That would involve work. However, acting like a candidate will keep liberal dollars flowing to their slush fund.
A different kind of slush was flowing at a recent appearance of Hillery and Chelsea:
Sources told the outlet that this is not a one-time issue. “Last week when Hillary and Chelsea Clinton were in the audience,” said a source, “the lights came up for intermission and there were two human turds in the aisle just near the famous political duo.”
It would be worth the price of admission to join in the trend.
Big Mike and the Hoe look a like.
Big Mike is bigger than the Ho and based on reports from Willie Brown, the Ho doesn’t have an 8″ Johnson.
” Members of the Biden CRIME family received more than $1 million”
There, fixed it.
Thanks a lot, can’t unsee that, about burned my eyeballs. Maybe she/he can swim on the Penn team next to “Lea”.
How much more of this bravo sierra can America take before imploding?
The hits keep coming. Another day of outrage.
Thinking if we leave the rats to themselves (getting harder as they have invaded all of life) they might start eating each other. We can only hope.
Good heavens. Do you remember when Russians weren’t allowed to pray in school and private property was punitively taxed and Christianity was forbidden in the public square or anywhere else.
My, how that worm’s turned.
The Russkies laugh at us and call Ukraine a crusade against “GloboHomo.”
I’d say they have a point.
Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis
George Washington was bled to death by leaches because he had a throat infection. Since then, medicine has discovered germs. What breakthroughs of similar importance have we discovered about government in the last 200 years?
Constitutions don’t limit government? The mainstream media, schools, and most other institutions serve the powers that be? Only 10% of Americans want smaller government? American society from 1620-1914 was Hell, because narcotics were legal?
You are of course correct on governance.
Adams famously said that “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
That’s why it isn’t working today.
Narcotics were discouraged. Not advertised and promoted as some cure or panacea.
It seems like most libertarians take that position to defend their drug use.
Careful, Ed. Noticing patterns is Hate Think.
Less humorously, Adams’ famous observation-and-caveat was a product of (and limited by) his worldview and time. While the Founding Fathers were far more educated and aware of the rest of the world than 95+% of USAians today, I’ll bet his remark implicitly compared religious and moral Whites (and more particularly those speaking a Germanic-derived language, or French) to those Whites not moral. In other words, East Asians, Turks, South Asians, and Black Africans, were not even considered, apart from possibly being lumped into “other” (and assumed to be not relevant to any discussion about being moral).
The demographic changes the US has undergone over the last 50 years, and at an accelerating rate, will soon leave heritage whites a minority in the US. This MIGHT have been tolerable IF the “new Americans” adopted “White American” mores and worldviews, but mostly they have not. And academia, newsmedia and popular culture positively encourage immigrants to NOT assimilate. (As to why not, well, those three domains are wildly disproportionately controlled by a tiny minority that always considers itself oppressed outsiders, despite their wealth and power. Tiny oppressed minority groups WANT a noncohesive, fractured society full of antagonistic groups they can manipulate and set at each others’ throats.)
All that TL;DR is to say that “moral and religious” is not enough. Heritage and culture matter. Many if not most of that tiny minority group genuinely consider themselves highly moral. Some Muslim guy off the plane from Shitholistan is very very likely to be more sincerely religious than the average White American. So Adams’ statement, while correct for its time, is not at all directly applicable to the USA of 2023.
X3. I love these comments…clear-headed viewpoint/treatise on the state of current affairs juxtaposed to historical factual foundations to give one a better and more educated perspective. H/t
A security-producing-system needs to restrain Hitler wanna-bes, or it fails. If a Hitler personality is one in ten million, then 700 worldwide are continuously looking for their opportunity. Don’t give them an ecological niche.
No drug bans means no huge profits in the black market for drug gangs. Budweiser and Coors don’t have shootouts in the street.
You can’t blame any minority for implementing bad policy as a group effort, they don’t have the votes. The bulk of voters descended from Europe were and are in charge. http://www.charleslindbergh.com/americanfirst/speech.asp
“They don’t have the votes.”
Face palm. So, through the miracle of the vote, my political and cultural will has the same impact as Larry Fink’s, or Bob Iger’s, or Bill Gates’, or Jon Stewart’s, or Victoria Nuland’s, or Kevin Feige’s.
Þorr preserve us.
If you believe the vast majority of voters are the pro-liberty types painted by Norman Rockwell, then it doesn’t matter what nonsense the relatively rare would-be Hitlers demand, they’ll be ignored by the majority in the privacy of the voting booth.
But if you are claiming a single-digit percentage who are celebrities can use media to remotely program the minds of most voters, who are actually NPCs, then accordingly you have to agree that republican government will never work as advertised.
The majority of voters descended from Europe are actually in charge as a group, because government has no power unless that majority voluntarily obeys laws and pays taxes. In any case, the reality of life-with-constitution doesn’t match your predictions of life-with-constitution, so the theory is wrong.
Are you calling Fink, or Iger, or Nuland, or Stewart “NAZIs”? Because that’s pretty insensitive. I am embarrassed just reading those hurtful accusations. ☹️
No, no, no, of course not. First off the Hitler administration was defeated, so nobody can apply for a membership card today. But I don’t think that list are nationalistic socialists like the Germans who put nation first, I think they’re ordinary socialists which is an international movement which downplays what nation a person is supposed to be loyal to.
Only 10% of humans want anything like liberty, and so far they haven’t come up with a defensive system that works against a 9:1 headcount ratio, where the commies opposing them are their own wives and children.
