Truly, we are living in exceptional times! Nothing appears to be fixed anymore; everything’s in flux – first of all, truth itself. Those in control of the narrative have now fully made a mockery of the term “reality”. After all, revolution is about inversion; inversion of all things, including the fundamentals. Turn it all upside down, inside out, back to front! The greater and more shameless the lie, the better. Black is white; two plus two equals five; good is evil, and evil is good. There are no limits to this kind of overthrow of the truth. The rewriting and turning on its head of the Good, True and Beautiful must first slander, then wipe out each and every memory of the old pre-revolutionary days – while the “new normal”, that is predicated on evil, falseness and ugliness, boldly claims the moral highground and just as boldly demonises, marginalises and finally exterminates everything and everybody representing the Ancient Régime. It happened during the French Revolution. It happened during the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, the National Socialist Revolution in Germany, the Maoist Revolution in China, and in every other communist takeover anywhere in the world. Now it’s America’s turn, with Europe and the rest of the once-free world soon to be devoured by the communists, as well. Whether we like it or not, it’s World October. As we speak, we’re still in the phase of marginalisation of conservatives, soon to be followed by extermination. The ultimate punishment by (and victory for) the communists, however, is virtually deleting anybody they don’t like from the records, forever. George Orwell’s famous dystopian novel 1984, which is probably the harshest and most prescient polemic against communist totalitarianism ever written, uses for this the term “vaporisation”:
It was always at night – the arrests invariably happened at night. The sudden jerk out of sleep, the rough hand shaking your shoulder, the lights glaring in your eyes, the ring of hard faces round the bed. In the vast majority of cases there was no trial, no report of the arrest. People simply disappeared, always during the night. Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: VAPORIZED was the usual word.
Keep in mind: Hubristic communism has always sought and continues to seek to irreversibly establish a “new world”, a “new man”, a “new civilisation” – without God, and with man himself (or rather: “the Party”) enthroned as the architect of his own destiny. We in the Western world, at least the older ones, know well from history where such insane arbitrariness and unchecked concentration of power inevitably lead: The result has always, in every single case, been: TYRANNY. Unfortunately, this knowledge of the nature of so-called socialism/communism – the communists have always used the terms as synonyms, so why shouldn’t we! – this knowledge is not as widespread among the societies forced to live under that system, overt or covert (as, sadly, there is no such thing as post-communism). These unlucky populations were indeed subjected to decades of intense propaganda, disinformation and outright brainwashing. Only on the basis of such “re-wiring” (that famously includes the manipulative technique of “gaslighting”) has it been possible to keep them in check even in a “hybrid”, supposedly post-communist environment, that of course is still controlled by the old communist elite. They have very real blank spots in their collective memory as to what the communists have actually done (and continue to do) to them. In fact, a considerable portion of them longs back for the “good old days” of socialism, where they may not have enjoyed freedom or prosperity, but at least some sense of whatever dubious “security”. In other words, the deletion of true history has already happened in these countries and is now raising its same ugly head in the West, first and foremost – dare we recognise? – in the once-land of the free and home of the brave, the United States of America.
Insofar, the truism that the victors (in a war) write the history, acquires a much more horrible dimension. First, the West even neglected for a long time being at war with communism. Senator Joseph McCarthy’s investigations were ridiculed (and the man himself demonised and destroyed). President John F. Kennedy’s profound warnings are widely forgotten (as is the indisputable fact that his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, was not a “patsy”, but a fanatical communist acting under the direction of, and being probably assisted by, Soviet and Cuban intelligence). Finally, a “new type” of General Secretary of the CPSU rose to power in the person of Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, basically a more charismatic variation of Czech reform communist Alexander Dubček. Indeed, Dubček’s 1968 “Prague Spring” had been the dress rehearsal for Soviet perestroika some twenty years later (and it was the Western Left that celebrated Dubček more than anybody else at the time). Gorbachev’s impact was devastating: “Iron Lady” Margaret Thatcher melted in his resolute hands like butter. Even staunch anti-communist Ronald Reagan fell for Gorbachev’s deceptive charms and suddenly believed the “Evil Empire” was genuinely interested in democratisation (rather than long-term victory through deception). The alleged “collapse of communism” in 1989/91 indeed cast a terrible spell upon the free world, that naïvely thought peace and friendship and “fruitful cooperation” between the nations were in the cards. Nothing could have been further from the truth, and everybody with eyes to see can see today what giant hoax it has all been. But, open societies – whatever prosperous and free – are always at a massive disadvantage vis-à-vis totalitarian, militaristic communism. They get much more easily infiltrated; public opinion can be greatly manipulated, too. Their political leaders, by merely meeting communist leaders, risk getting tricked at best, or else getting harmed physically. America’s Original Sin in this regard was certainly FDR’s diplomatic recognition of the USSR at the beginning of his twelve-year presidency in 1933. Writes the brilliant Diana West in her 2013 reference work, American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character (pp. 195, 196):
The West’s decision to recognize the USSR – and its determination to keep recognizing it, no matter how much lying and acquiescence to betrayal that entailed – did more to transform us than any single act before or since. The profound diplomatic shift – part Faustian bargain, part moral lobotomy – didn’t just invite the Soviet Union into the community of nations. To make room for the monster-regime, the United States had to surrender the terra firma of objective morality and reality-based judgment. No wonder, then, that tens of thousands of Dreyfus Cases in Russia meant nothing to the “conscience of the civilized world.” Implications had already been officially sundered from facts.
To be sure, there was something new in the way recognition ever after reordered the priorities and actions of our republic, something that marked the beginning of a different kind of era. The fact is, the implications of normalizing relations with the thoroughly abnormal USSR didn’t just reward and legitimize a regime of rampantly metastasizing criminality. Because the Communist regime was so openly and ideologically dedicated to our destruction, the act of recognition defied reason and the demands of self-preservation. Recognition and all that came with it, including alliance, would soon become the enemy of reason and self-preservation. In this way, as Dennis J. Dunn points out, we see a double standard in American foreign policy evolve, and, I would add, in American thinking more generally. It was here that we abandoned the lodestars of good and evil, the clarity of black and white. Closing our eyes, we dove head first into a weltering morass of exquisitely enervating and agonizing grays.
How can one ever expect to effectively deal with a deadly enemy whom one has mistakenly decided to make into a “friend”? In the ghastly parallel universe of communist class struggle, as it’s called, eternal war to the death against the “capitalist oppressor” is absolutely non-negotiable. “Either the dictatorship of the landowners and capitalists, or the dictatorship of the proletariat … There is no middle course … There is no middle course anywhere in the world, nor can there be,” said Lenin. By engaging in rapprochement with these political criminals, one opens a dangerous pathway to ultimate suicide by becoming like them. Has there ever been an exorcist who successfully cast out a demon by treating it “on an equal footing”, to use the ambiguous language of the documents of Vatian II? The only way of dealing with these monsters, unless one possesses solid exorcistic abilities, would have been NOT TO DEAL WITH THEM AT ALL! KGB-defector Yuri Bezmenov, in his famous 1984 interview conducted by G. Edward Griffin, put it this way:
There must be a very strong national effort to educate people in the spirit of real patriotism, number one. Number two, to explain them the real danger of socialist-communist-whatever welfare state, big-brother government. If people will fail to grasp the impending danger of that development, nothing ever can help United States. You may kiss good-bye to your freedom, including freedoms to homosexuals, to prison-inmates, all these freedoms will vanish, will evaporate in 5 seconds, including your precious lives. – The second thing: at the moment [i.e. in 1984] at least part of the United States population is convinced that the danger is real, they have to force their government – and I’m not talking about sending letters, signing petitions and all these beautiful, noble activities -, I’m talking about forcing United States government to stop aiding communism; because there is no other problem more burning and urgent than to stop the Soviet military-industrial complex from destroying whatever is left of the free world. And this is very easy to do: NO credits; NO technology; NO money; NO political or diplomatic recognition; and of course NO such idiocies as grain deals to USSR. The Soviet people, 270 millions of Soviets, will be eternally thankful to you if you stop aiding a bunch of murderers who sit now in Kremlin and whom President Reagan respectfully calls ‘government’. They do not ‘govern’ anything, least of all such complexity as the Soviet economy. So, basically, two very simple, maybe too simplistic answers or solutions. Nevertheless, they are the only solutions! Educate yourself! Understand what’s going on around you! You are NOT living at a time of peace; you are in the state of war! And you have precious little time to save yourselves. You don’t have much time, especially if we are talking about young generation, there’s not much time left for convulsions and sexual masturbations to the beautiful disco-music. Very soon it will go [snapping] just, just overnight. If we are talking about capitalists, or wealthy businessmen, they, I think, they are selling the rope on which they will hang very soon. If they don’t stop, if they cannot curb their insatiable desire for profit and they will keep on trading with the monster of Soviet Communism, they are going to hang, very soon! And they will pray to be killed, but unfortunately they will be sent to Alaska, probably, to manage industry of slaves. It’s simplistic; I know it sounds unpleasant; I know Americans don’t like to listen to things which are unpleasant, but I have defected not to tell you the stories about such idiocies as microfilm-James-Bond-type espionage, this is garbage, you don’t need any espionage any more. I have come to talk about: SURVIVAL! It’s a question of survival of this system. You may ask me what is it then for me: survival, obviously, because, unlike – as I said: I am now in your boat! If we sink together, we will sink beautifully – together. THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE ON THIS PLANET TO DEFECT TO!
Tragically, the West made all the worst choices. Instead of standing clear of the communists, it has built – to its own detriment – a system of international interdependence, which the communists just love and which has become an irreversible fait accompli! Especially since 1991, it’s been increasingly downhill for the Western world. George H. W. Bush lost his 1992 re-election to radical leftist Bill Clinton. South Africa saw a revolutionary regime change in 1994 from the former Apartheid system to, of all possible options, a government under the communist “Tripartite Alliance” of ANC, South African Communist Party and the Congress of South African Trade Unions, which ever since has run South Africa’s economy and social stability into the ground (they are now threatening the remaining Boer farmers with “expropriation without compensation”, something similar is going on in neighbouring Namibia, which has been ruled since 1990 by the Marxist SWAPO). German reunification in 1990 didn’t work out as expected by Chancellor Helmut Kohl; although West Germany put massive amounts of money into the run-down East, the Left from both sides outmanoeuvred Kohl and finally got control of the whole of Germany. When Soviet propaganda under Gorbachev was praising perestroika i.a. as a project of “acceleration”, one can only say that the development of the 1990s was just that – after which 9/11 opened the new strategic phase of “Grey Terror”, meaning false-flag terror. Then came “The One”, as Oprah Winfrey hailed Barack Obama during the 2008 election campaign. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan even called him “the Messiah”. Obama’s intense communist connections (to communist “preacherman” Jeremiah Wright, to Communist Party USA operative Frank Marshall Davis, and also to Weatherman communist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn) hardly made it into the headlines and were all outright denied by Obama himself. Whoever dared present evidence suggesting Obama could have been no less than the ultimate communist Trojan Horse was either ridiculed or simply ignored.
Despite the shocking speed (successful revolutions always overwhelm the other side) at which Americans are now losing their country to a nominal Democratic Party that is meanwhile indistinguishable from the Communist Party USA, nonetheless a great deal of grief work, or mere reflection, seems appropriate, if not necessary, in order to comprehend what’s going on and what has led to this calamitous state of affairs. After all, this is now America’s own Bolshevik Revolution. It may have begun with Barack “Change Has Come to America” Obama’s first election victory twelve years ago (strangely, also Lenin needed twelve years from the failed 1905 Revolution till his definitive takeover in 1917). But now things are all in place for the revolutionaries, and unconcealed Red Terror is coming into sight. One can see the coordination between the radicals inside America and the dangerous moves by Moscow and Beijing. In a way, we have already entered World War III, ironically with one side only fighting. We are witnessing the same tactics as in every other communist revolution applied against the hated “bourgeoisie”: Wild intimidation; public shaming; aggressive ostracisation (they are indeed speaking of excluding conservatives from participating in “polite society”); systematic censorhip of conservatives; threats of ruining their careers, their families, and even threats against their very lives. Nothing of which gets ever prosecuted or brought to a halt, as the system is irredeemably broken. Those who aren’t communists, cower before the aggression, hoping the revolution will spare them.
And then there’s the object of the communists’ fiercest hatred, Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States. The revolution may have stolen a landslide election victory from him, and still they won’t rest until they have totally destroyed both him as a person and his political legacy of “America First”. And that’s where Orwell’s “vaporisation” comes into the picture. The communists certainly do everything they can to slander Donald Trump, to isolate him, to defame his presidency, even to get him arrested or, God forbid, killed. But their final objective goes deeper still. They want to ERASE him. His name will be turned, and is already being turned, into a “non-word”. They will soon suppress every mentioning of him. Following Stalin’s practice of blotting out “disgraced” comrades from photographs and other records, Donald J. Trump may well become the first President of the United States that never was!
While the communist usurping the Chair of Peter will give his “Papal” blessings to it all and most happily deliver the Trump-supporting nuns – God bless them! – to the gallows…
Postscript: Here are some key excerpts from premier Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn’s 1984 book, New Lies for Old: The Communist Strategy of Deception and Disinformation, that foresaw, to a T, what is happening today:
The communist bloc, with its recent accretions in Africa and South-East Asia, is already strong. European-backed Soviet influence and American-backed Chinese influence could lead to new Third World acquisitions at an accelerating pace. Before long, the communist strategists might be persuaded that the balance had swung irreversibly in their favor. In that event they might well decide on a Sino-Soviet “reconciliation.” The scissors strategy would give way to the strategy of “one clenched fist.”
At that point the shift in the political and military balance would be plain for all to see. Convergence would not be between two equal parties, but would be on terms dictated by the communist bloc. The argument for accommodation with the overwhelming strength of communism would be virtually unanswerable. Pressures would build up for changes in the American political and economic system on the lines indicated in Sakharov’s treatise. Traditional conservatives would be isolated and driven toward extremism. They might become the victims of a new McCarthyism of the left. The Soviet dissidents who are now extolled as heroes of the resistance to Soviet communism would play an active part in arguing for convergence. Their present supporters would be confronted with a choice of forsaking their idols or acknowledging the legitimacy of the new Soviet regime.
The Worldwide Communist Federation:
Integration of the communist bloc would follow the lines envisaged by Lenin when the Third Communist International was founded. That is to say, the Soviet Union and China would not absorb one another or other communist states. All the countries of the European and Asiatic communist zones, together with new communist states in Europe and the Third World, would join a supranational economic and political communist federation. Soviet-Albanian, Soviet-Yugoslav, and Soviet-Romanian disputes and differences would be resolved in the wake, or possibly in advance of, Sino-Soviet reconciliation. The political, economic, military, diplomatic, and ideological cooperation between all the communist states, at present partially concealed, would become clearly visible. There might even be public acknowledgement that the splits and disputes were long-term disinformation operations that had successfully deceived the “imperialist” powers. The effect on Western morale can be imagined.
In the new worldwide communist federation the present different brands of communism would disappear, to be replaced by a uniform, rigorous brand of Leninism. The process would be painful. Concession made in the name of economic and political reform would be withdrawn. Religious and intellectual dissent would be suppressed. Nationalism and all other forms of genuine opposition would be crushed. Those who had taken advantage of détente to establish friendly Western contacts would be rebuked or persecuted like those Soviet officers who worked with the allies during the Second World War. In new communist states – for example, in France, Italy, and the Third World – the “alienated classes” would be reeducated. Show trials of “imperialist agents” would be staged. Action would be taken against nationalist and social democratic leaders, party activists, former civil servants, officers, and priests. The last vestiges of private enterprise and ownership would be obliterated. Nationalization of industry, finance, and agriculture would be completed. In fact, all the totalitarian features familiar from the early stages of the Soviet revolution and the postwar Stalinist years in Eastern Europe might be expected to reappear, especially in those countries newly won for communism.Unchallenged and unchallengeable, a true communist monolith would dominate the world.
