“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who has read Lenin and Marx. And how do you tell an anti-communist? It’s someone who understands Lenin and Marx.” President Ronald Reagan (01/20/1981-01/30/1989)
As defined by Wikipedia, “communism is a philosophical, social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose goal is the establishment of a communist society, namely a socioeconomic order structured upon the ideas of common ownership of property and the absence of social classes, money, and the state. Communism is a specific, yet distinct, form of socialism.” And this is what the extreme far left wants for the United States. And the USSR is a perfect example of what a communist, or socialist, government does at any extent to control its citizens and expand its borders.
The situation that currently exists between The Ukraine and the USSR is historically based, long before The Ukraine became an independent country. Following the breakup of the USSR in 1991, The Ukraine and Russia continued to retain very close ties for decades. At the same time, there were several important points, especially The Ukraine’s significant nuclear arsenal, in which they agreed to abandon in The Budapest Memorandum, December 1994, on the condition that Russia and the other signatories would issue an assurance against threats or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of The Ukraine. Big empty words!
However, over the course of the last twenty plus years, Russia has invaded Soviet Georgia in 2008 when George W. Bush was POTUS. In 2014, Russia invaded the Crimea, as the weak Obama sent blankets and MRE’s. In 2022, Russia invaded The Ukraine as DementiaJoe failed to enact sanctions months ahead of Putin’s go-ahead. Can you please name which POTUS had contained Russia, Iran and NoKo? It was #45.
While there are many reasons for a war to start, including imperialism, religion, greed and fighting over a woman…see Helen of Troy. In the conflict between The Ukraine and the USSR, Putin expressed his concern regarding his neighbor joining the European Union and NATO. His rhetoric was since NATO was on his border, NATO would invade. That’s called a “false flag,” which one side creates an incident to begin fighting.
There also is the gross weakness displayed by Biden with the military retreat from Afghanistan, leaving thousands of civilians and $86 trillion worth of equipment in the hands of the Taliban. And don’t forget Biden reentering the JCPOA with Iran. The situation at the southern border is open to the world. Any strength showed by President Donald John Trump went up in smoke because Biden turned radical left. And each time Biden speaks in a public forum, the entire world gets to see the POTUS as a cognitively delinquent, dysfunctional senior who should be home in Delaware.
One of the sanctions enacted focused on “SWIFT,” which stands for the “Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication,” which allows banks to relay information about financial transactions to one another. The European Union announced that seven key Russian banks will be barred from using SWIFT. The Russian banks, including Bank Otkritie, Bank Rossiya, Novikombank and VTB Bank, will be barred from SWIFT.
The only component of the Russian economy not affected is the Russian oil industry. So, any country that is currently purchasing oil from the USSR, is funding Putin’s war on The Ukraine. Let’s not forget that DementiaJoe signed Executive Orders that torpedoed the American energy industry, from energy independent to energy dependent. And who are we dependent on: Russia, OPEC, UAE and the Biden administration is in the process of negotiating with Iran and Venezuela. So, we are trading one dictatorship for another to get American money. Yet as gas and oil prices spike, with rising inflation rates approaching 10%, the American consumer is getting squeezed. Finally here we have Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who told that she would support a ban on Russian oil imports, breaking with the Biden Administration’s stance on the issue. “I’m all for that… ban the oil coming from Russia,” But she canceled her correct stance by stating no domestic drilling. More inflation. So, as the situation in Eastern Europe is spiraling, history, as I maintain, has a tendency to repeat itself.
Oh, by the way, the Saudis and OPEC told Biden NO! Biden: “Can’t do much right now. Russia is responsible.” Russia is 3% of our oil.
“The Democrats’ “war on fossil fuels” is a “self-inflicted” wound that has created division in The Congress and hostilities worldwide,” according to Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI). “They no longer want to use fossil fuels; they think in their fantasy minds that we really can power the American economy with wind and solar power.” Fantasy? More like a bloody nightmare!
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the US is talking with its European allies about banning oil imports from Russia as a means to cut off the lucrative revenue stream for Putin to fund his war in Ukraine. And how much will a barrel of oil go for? $110.00? $115.00 or more? In the first few minutes of trade Brent crude reached $139.13 a barrel and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) hit $130.50, both benchmarks striking their highest since July 2008. We need former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo!
“Holodomor” was known as the “Great Terror-famine.” The Soviet famine of 1932–1933 was a famine in the major grain producing areas of the USSR, including the Ukraine, Northern Caucasus, Volga Region, Kazakhstan, the South Urals and West Siberia. About 5.7 to 8.7 million people were estimated to have lost their lives as Joseph Stalin and other party members had ordered that “kulaks,” peasants who owned more than eight acres, were “to be liquidated as a class”, and became a target for the state. The richer, land-owning peasants were labeled “kulaks” and were portrayed by the Bolsheviks as class enemies, which culminated in a Soviet campaign of political repressions, including arrests, deportations, and executions of large numbers of the better-off peasants-kulaks- and their families from 1929–1932.
At that time a NY Times writer, no shock about that failing rag, by the name of Walter Duranty, who was an American propagandist, served as Moscow bureau chief for the Times for fourteen years following the Bolshevik victory in the Russian Civil War from 1918-1921. He reported how well things were functioning in the Soviet Union, but interestingly left out the starvation affecting the people in the aforementioned areas, including what was happening to the kulaks. And because Duranty deliberately left out the hideous things being carried out under Joseph Stalin’s order, he wrote that the Soviet way of life was the wave of the future.
In 1932, Duranty received a Pulitzer Prize for a series of reports about the USSR, eleven of which were published in June 1931. He was later criticized for his subsequent denial of the widespread famine from 1932-1933 in the USSR, most particularly the Holodomor beginning in 1932. There were calls for the Pulitzer board to revoke Duranty’s prize. The Pulitzer Board declined to revoke the award and in 2003 said the articles which it examined in making the award did not contain “clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception.” Political excuses and The NY Times to this day has failed to retract any of Duranty’s stories.
The USSR’s communist government and that way of life is currently being pushed by the orthodox, radical extremists of the socialist progressive liberal left with their desire to destroy the Constitutional Republic and reimage the country. And with referencing Duranty, it’s shocking how the modern day bootlicking dregs of the corporate mainstream media spin-doctor the communist based agenda perpetuated by the hypocritical Komrade Bernie, the former bartender Sandy Ocasio-Cortez and her anti-American, anti-Semitic magpies. Don’t forget that Komrade Bernie owns three homes and had signed a multimillion dollar book deal. Some communist! And the orthodox, radical extremists of the socialist progressive left will pressure and attack those who disagree with them, much like the early 20th Century communists and the Nazis from the late 1920’s.
Modern day Democrats are leaning very much to the left in a very cavalier manner. On December 15, 2021, The New York Post reported that Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) had addressed The Connecticut People’s World Party, an avowed Communist organization. Blumenthal said he was “excited and honored” to speak at the awards ceremony for the Connecticut People’s World Committee, an open Communist Party affiliate. The event celebrated the 102nd anniversary of the Communist Party USA, as it explicitly aimed to recruit new CPUSA members. His speech centered on “holding corporations accountable for the basic treatment of the American people.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, Blumenthal, ironically, is one of the wealthiest US senators, with an estimated worth of $100 million. In fact, his wealth is so vast he sometimes isn’t aware of all of his investments, including a real-estate development company linked to the Chinese government. And let’s not forget that Blumenthal is guilty of stolen valor from his “service” during the Vietnam War.
Maybe former Senator Joe McCarthy (R-WI (1947-1957), 1908-1957), was not so wrong. In 1950, McCarthy became the most visible public face during a period in the United States in which Cold War tensions fueled fears of widespread communist subversion from all levels of the Federal government to the entertainment industry. Nevertheless, the McCarthy hearings at times were equal to the Salem Witch Trials.
So, we have President Joe Biden, three sickening words by the way, who portrayed himself as a moderate Democrat throughout the 2020 Presidential election. When the final tabulations were done, Joenochio turned so far left, he deleted the word “right” from his already challenged vocabulary. He essentially turned hypocritical Communist. There are a plethora of Democrats with connections to the draconian Communist Chinese Republic, including the Biden syndicate, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who as a married man was involved with a CCR spy. Moreover, two of the upper echelon of BLM are avowed Marxists. As for all of the aforementioned, and there are a plethora of additional Democratic ties to Communism, which the MSM does not report it or spin-doctors their information.
As much as the US prides itself as a Constitutional Republic, there are forces at play from outside, and within the country, that want to flip the economy, weaken the military, keep the southern border open to illegal aliens, control the government and the people, along with the influence of the green new deal hotheads to destroy the domestic energy industry. Interestingly, the longtime history between The Ukraine and the USSR has dragged the United States, Canada, England and the European Union into the conflict initiated by Putin. And he’s following the path established by Stalin in the 1930’s. And what is the predominant appetite for the world’s economy? Oil and natural gas and the USSR has 4% of the market.
As reported by the CBC, in a meeting with his trusted “advisers,” Putin was berating the head of foreign intelligence regarding The Ukraine’s sovereignty, with a possibility of negotiations. It makes you wonder if any of the “advisers” really have any influence? Not!
Lastly, while Putin is very much to blame for the “minor incursion,” according to DementiaJoe, Biden must also take his share of the blame for taking away America’s lead in the energy industry, displaying weakness and dysfunction from the word go! He talked about what the Russians were going to do, but took no kind of proactive action. The reason? Biden did not want to PROVOKE Putin. Putin saw the end of the Donald John Trump presidency and saw a glorious opportunity to put one, or three, over Biden. Putin saw Biden’s weakness with the botch job in Afghanistan and waved President Donald John Trump’s strangulating sanctions regarding Nord Stream II. DementiaJoe has been a shit show right from the start!
And don’t forget that history repeats itself and is a very harsh teacher!
