Notes on an Uncertain Future Predicting World War III Commentary of 20 January 2014 with corrections added in red after 8 February By J.R. Nyquist
A friend in Europe reminded me that on 24 March 2011 a group of ―well-known Russian astrologers, shamans and parapsychologists gathered to discuss forecasts for the near and distant future.‖ Since almost nothing of importance in Russia occurs without the state or the FSB having a ―finger in the pie‖ (so to speak) it is worth taking notice of Russian predictions – whatever the source. Readers are directed to the 2011 Pravda.ru article titled Third World War to Begin during Winter Games in 2014. A wise man once said, ―Never make predictions, especially about the future.‖ Indeed, the article contains predictions that obviously did not come true. Anyone who monitors major predictions about the future will find a very poor track record in 99 out of 100 cases. What is most curious, however, is that ―participants‖ of the aforementioned 2011 meeting offered up a date for the beginning of World War III that already has some of us jittery. According to the article war supposedly begins in March 2014, during or shortly after the Olympic Games in Sochi. Since there have been bombings in Russia, and since Russia has threatened to take unspecified actions against Saudi Arabia if terrorists bomb the Sochi games, there may be reason to worry. We know that supposed Islamist terror bombings in Russia have, in the past, been carried out by the FSB along with other ―false flag‖ operations. We know that Saudi Arabia is the key to the West‘s oil lifeline. Is Russia setting up a pretext for war? In the case of the assembled astrologers and parapsychologists in Russia, how did they arrive at the March 2014 date for the start of World War III? The best predictions are often made by those who have sources on ―the inside.‖ If an astrologer is trying to boost himself, wouldn‘t it be prudent to have friends in the special services or General Staff? After all, such predictions would greatly strengthen the livelihood of any self-respecting astrologer or parapsychologist. Therefore we may ask if the Russian astrologers are merely reflecting an open secret within Russia‘s ruling circles. As it happens, an answer to this question is ready at hand. I received a note from a practicing non-Russian astrologer about the March 2014 time frame for World War III. Apparently, in the lore
of astrology, 2014 looks rather frightening. In the previous version of this present article I had mistakenly assumed the aforementioned astrologer was concerned about events in March, and I took that to mean there was nothing else behind the Russian astrological predictions except astrology. Silly me. The story is even more interesting insofar as there are no (I am told) astrologically justified reasons for the Russian astrological prediction. found nothing especially frightening about March 2014. And this leaves me wondering out loud: why were the Russian astrologers, who regularly serve the Russian General Staff and KGB, registering concerns for March 2014? Again, we may be looking at something that has more to do with inside knowledge of intentions which, in trying to look credible, must reflect what superiors already believe is set to happen. This is significant, and perhaps other experts can contact me and weigh in on the matter. It is not a question here of believing in astrology, by the way. It is a question of why Russian astrologers and shamans would underscore the Winter Olympics and March of 2014 as the beginning of World War III. So when is the next world war going to start? Let us turn to someone who made 148 falsifiable predictions in his 1984 book and got roughly 94 percent of them right. I am referring to KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn. His predictions were based on strategic insight, years of study, and personal knowledge. In a 1978 memorandum to the CIA Golitsyn warned that America and NATO were in grave danger because the Soviet Union had adopted a long range strategy that the West knew nothing about. According to Golitsyn, ―… a trap is being laid by the Communist policymakers which will be exploited when the USSR carries out a deceptive liberalization of its regime….‖ Written in 1978, more than a decade before the revolutions that swept through Eastern Europe, Golitsyn‘s warning was scoffed at. ―With few exceptions,‖ the editors of Golitsyn‘s 1984 book affirmed, ―those Western officials who were aware of the views expressed in the manuscript [of Golitsyn], especially on the Sino-Soviet split, rejected them. In fact, over the years it became increasingly clear to the author that there was no reasonable hope of his analysis of communist affairs being seriously considered in Western official circles.‖ While Nancy Reagan consulted astrologers, the White House and intelligence community weren‘t touching Golitsyn with a ten foot pole. In fact, the poor man was defamed in publication after publication. The accuracy of his predictions was vociferously denied. And here we are, twenty years after the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc, with a KGB officer nominally in charge of Russia. If anyone cares to notice, the liberalization was false indeed if only because Russia has not been liberalized. Even the former satellite countries exist in a curious state between liberalization and ongoing control by hidden communist ―structures.‖ What did this liberalization accomplish in the end? If anyone cares to notice, NATO has been gradually disarming while President Barack Obama is working to shrink the U.S. nuclear arsenal to a fraction of its current size. And why is this important? In a 1973 memorandum to the CIA Golitsyn wrote: ―One can also expect a concealed Communist offensive through their agents of influence … in order further to undermine the establishment, especially the Pentagon, the so-called ‗military-industrial complex‘ and the American Special Services; and further to reduce the authority of the President in the military field and to reduce expenditure on defense….‖ The further weakening of the United States, wrote Golitsyn,
will lead to Communist Bloc military ―superiority over the West through secret Sino Soviet cooperation….‖ The result of such superiority is not hard to guess. According to Golitsyn‘s 1973 memorandum, ―The Soviet and Chinese rocket strike units and strategic bombers will make a surprise raid on Pearl Harbor lines on the main government and military headquarters of the leading Western countries and on their missile sites. The main idea will be to knock out the primary Western sources of retaliation and to paralyze, at least for a short period, their physical ability to take a decision on retaliation.‖ Golitsyn further wrote: ―Although, of course, this vision of a surprise attack on the West is … speculation, it is [my] belief that it is definitely in the realm of possibility, given that it has been the subject of study by the KGB, and should in any case be prepared for….‖ There are a number of factors that must be clarified before we continue our analysis of when World War III is likely to begin. First, we must reckon with the diversionary role played by Arab terrorism in advance of a nuclear attack on the United States. A pre-war diversionary phase, known within Soviet military circles as ―Grey Terror,‖ was outlined by GRU defector Viktor Suvorov in Spetsnaz: The Inside Story of the Soviet Special Forces. On page 196 of the book, Suvorov defined Grey Terror as ―a series of large and small [terrorist] operations the purpose of which is, before actual military operations begin, to weaken the enemy‘s morale, create an atmosphere of suspicion, fear and uncertainty, and divert attention of the enemy‘s armies and police forces to a huge number of different targets.‖ Suvorov further stated that Grey Terror is a kind of terror that is carried out ―in the name of already existing extremist groups not connected in any way with the Soviet Union, or in the name of fictitious organizations.‖ If alarm bells are not ringing in your head at this point in our discourse, then you haven‘t been reading with sufficient attention. For here we have a GRU defector describing a diversionary strategy that precedes World War III. The book in which this description takes place was written 13 years before the spectacular terrorist attack of 9/11, which KGB defector Alexander Litvinenko hinted was a KGB operation. (Before his poisoning with polonium-210, Litvinenko also said that leading figures in al Qaeda were KGB agents – including Ayman al-Zawahri, the current chief of al Qaeda.) It is almost certainly not a coincidence that al Qaeda‘s operations against the United States closely resemble Grey Terror. If we consider the Soviet role in creating and supporting international terrorism during the past half century, and the testimony of communist bloc defectors like Ion Pacepa, the purpose of the terror edifice comes sharply into focus. In essence, if we are reading the situation correctly, the first act of war has already happened. It was accomplished through a covert mechanism so that the victim of the attack could not properly identify the true source of the attack. The question of when all-out war begins, however, is still not answered. In November 1999, while conversing with GRU defector Stanislav Lunev, I admitted to being puzzled by the exact mechanism of a Soviet surprise nuclear strike. How would they pull it off? Lunev said, ―If you ever hear that Arab terrorists have attacked an American city with nuclear weapons, don‘t believe it.‖ I asked Lunev why I should disbelieve such a thing. He replied: ―Because it will be my people. It will be Spetsnaz.‖ I asked him what would happen after such a nuclear attack. He said that a period of weeks or months would
elapse. ―Then the rockets from Russia will arrive.‖ This last statement puzzled me a great deal at the time, but does not puzzle me today. The United States government has sometimes (if not often) been manipulated by Russian agents of influence. Diana West has written a bestselling book to remind us of this fact. Time is always required for such agents to guide a nation‘s policies toward national disadvantage. This would also be true for a country suffering a diversionary nuclear terror attack. Considering how easily we have been manipulated in the past, consider what a diversionary nuclear strike could accomplish if the right people were in the White House? This leads me to consider another communist bloc defector. His name was Jan Sejna, and in 1982 he wrote the following words about Russia‘s long-range strategy: Soviet ambitions towards the United States were aimed at the extinction of Capitalism and the ‗socialization‘ of America…. The main strategic goals on the road to their fulfillment were: the withdrawal of the U.S.A. from Europe and Asia; the removal of Latin America from the United States‘ sphere of influence and its incorporation into the Socialist bloc; the destruction of United States influence in the developing world; the reduction of American military power to a state of inferiority; the advent to power in Washington of a transitional liberal and progressive government; and the collapse of the American economy. Before a missile can be launched the U.S. political system will be infiltrated (see the work of Trevor Loudon) and the U.S. economy will be sabotaged (see the work ofKevin Freeman). We can also see there is no reason to attack the United States with nuclear weapons until most or all of these goals have been reached. For once these goals are accomplished the United States will be ―ready for the oven.‖ In essence, the country will be disarmed and isolated. It will only be a matter of time before the country wakes up and attempts to change course. This is when Russia‘s nuclear weapons prove useful. That is when you should expect a war to start. All of this does not render an exact date. Instead, it gives us markers on the road ahead. Through these markers we can track our progress. We can see where we are, and where we can expect to be as events unfold. The strange thing, of course, is that Socialist bloc defectors have been describing our future for decades. The reason they were able to do this is simple. Strategy works when there is no counter-strategy. The Great Game follows a pattern set by the side that holds the initiative. In the West our leaders have denied there is an enemy or an opposing strategy. They are readily diverted into the dead end policies of the present day. The question that now cries out the for clarification has to do with domestic U.S. politics.

While men become foxes. an identity disorder (like feminism and homosexuality) in which the rejection of the true self leads to the passionate embrace of a false self. in its own right. and their brutal lion-like instincts. This development. yet another lioness.‖ This ―projection of the [sexual] shadow‖ is not merely the result of revolutionary politics usurping the place of religion. But English liberalism was at war with Germany long before the appearance of Nazism. If the elite of America have pushed out the lions.the meanwhile. columnist Ann Coulter advocated a war to replace radical Islam with Christianity. The upper and middle class manhood. in part. Our future lions will come from outside the elite. The lower classes are free to maintain their manhood. as women. When she was rebuked by the staff of National Review Online she replied that they were ―sissy boys. advocating the use of thermonuclear weapons against Mecca and Medina. Like Coulter. As men cultivate their female side women have been cultivating their male side. Effeminacy rules from the White House and the board room. This pathology draws the entire culture into a collective madness unequaled in world history. Likewise we find Ann Barnhardt. ―I am woman. from outside the existing power structures. when a Muslim threatened to kill her. following 9/11. with all its fateful consequences. The brutal character of the lion is not fully compatible with the character of the liberal. The elite are not so free. Barnhardt is ready to make war on the West‘s enemies. Anyone with sense can see that effeminacy has taken us by the throat. bloody reactionaries. They also avoid the masculine fault (so ascribed): They are in terror of being unmasked as bigots. The rising tide of elite effeminacy is like a disease carrying the entire system into dysfunction. with advice on the best flights to take from London to Denver. England went to war against Germany because of Nazism. is allowed to say things that would end the career of any man who said the same. she gave the would-be assassin directions to her house. then we will not find our lions in the elite. Afterwards. therefore. the women are free to become lions. or homophobes. It should also be admitted that these structures are. brought us to a situation in which the necessary admixture of lion and fox within the elite was no longer possible. It is no accident. hear me roar. This coincides with the phenomenon of the political lioness who. and begged the assassin to wear body armor . There is a psychological angle to all of this. It is. so essential for the persistence of society. in the long run. today‘s conservatives are themselves merely liberals who are slightly behindhand. Those who aspire to money or office cannot be men in the full sense. doomed to fall. that is to say.
He would not be paid at all. unheard of in an era of venal self-promotion. But nobody follows.‖ Therefore we must liquidate ―everyone and everything in Washington D. only woman is allowed to roar. A man who said the like would be unemployed. At one of her talks she was asked about the country splitting into two factions. Barnhardt has earned a special distinction. and is unlike any of the other would-be counter-revolutionary lions of the day. and the world will be renewed in blood. we cannot allow the blue states to hold the Pacific ports through which Chinese troops will be brought in to smash the red states. He would not be invited to speak before paying audiences.because she had acquired new armor-piercing rifle ammunition that she wanted to try out. He would be marginalized as a crazy person. In his penury he would find neither mate nor career. in effect. being motivated by profound convictions. (This answer is proof that Barnhardt is indeed a lion. There is nothing of the fox here. This peerless rectitude. One day. said Barnhardt. nor congratulations for his wisdom. She opposes and would strike out against it. They want a fast and easy solution to the national mess. and everything of the lion. and unmanned by the resulting social ostracism. The war will come. cast out. Our federal tax dollars.

She rises up against it.‖ Barnhardt also says: ―There is no authority you can appeal to [in order] to redress these grievances. They do not want to hear of tax strikes and the ―liquidation of everyone and everything‖ in Washington D.C. Naturally. or risk the consequences of saying or doing what Ann Coulter and Ann Barnhardt have said and done. Few men of the upper-middle class today would prove so bold. It seems that Barnhardt has felt this destruction in her bones. and financial security. The counter-revolution will occur because counter-revolutionaries yet exist. . ―subsidizing our own destruction. Counter-revolution will have its day. This is the tragedy of our time. We are. Her spiritual and ethical approach allows her to see further into the future than the foxes who presently govern us. a home. everyone will see what has happened.) Barnhardt‘s audiences cannot be expected to follow her into financial ruin. The questioner. This is because nobody presently trusts the judgment of the male lion.‖ Barnhardt‘s declaration of war on the federal government is as guileless as it is genuine. Cooperating with the system is to violate God's law. Why wouldn‘t the red states be content with the blue states staying separate? Because. she says. people recoil at her harsh statements of fact. Their financial ruin is guaranteed through another. gives her a special claim on the attention of her countrymen.

Furthermore. A reader of this blog recently noted. Our military policy has shifted away from preparing against a major adversary and we are not ready. and bigger plans are in store. and so on. things have gotten away from Russia... Kennan I began this series of commentaries on 20 January with the title ―Predicting World War III. with links. This is obvious from the Russian military invasion of Crimea.

The military balance has already shifted in Russia‘s favor. at the outset of a serious crisis that might easily escalate to world war." Yes. To read in order.S. At this point. We have been diverted and misdirected. In truth our military readiness is not what it should be.
the danger of war is growing. despite what the world thinks. They will lose power only when the Russian people fully awaken. Such a misunderstanding. ―I can only describe this as a military invasion and occupation. to realize the communist planners‘ strategy for establishing a United Europe. The best of them understand that there cannot be full freedom in Ukraine without freedom in Russia. One must consider the many cards Russia has yet to play: U. Russian 20th and 48th armies are making preparations to invade Eastern Ukraine. Ukraine mobilizes troops after Russia‘s ‗declaration of war‘ – with the following text: ―Kiev mobilized troops and called up military reservists in a rapidly escalating crisis that has raised fears of a conflict. The Fox News headline reads: Ukraine accuses Russia of ‗military invasion‘ as gunmen seize airports. and we are going to be treated to a parade of lies. Of course.‖ According to CNN.‖ Meanwhile.‖ . and they do not know Ukraine. Aside from Russian propaganda. ‗liberalized‘ model. ―every single one of them are prepared to go to the hilt in order to isolate Russia with respect to this invasion.‖ [p. They believe the balance of power has shifted. At the beginning they introduced a variation of the 1968 Czechoslovakian ‗democratization. The strategists in Moscow know that the revolt in Ukraine must be put down.‖ said Kerry. They‘re prepared to put sanct ions in place. they‘re prepared to isolate Russia economically.New Lies for Old] It appears we are nearing the later phase. And yes. and Ukraine is hopelessly outgunned. those who say the West is behind the Ukrainian freedom movement do not know the West. And then. troops depend on Russia for their supply line in Afghanistan. ―All of them. and they can act with impunity. Sanctions may not be practical. According to Ukrainian officials.S.is prepared to fight Russia? Only Ukraine is preparing to fight. there is the China Front. Anatoliy Golitsyn. they are afraid that a ―great unraveling‖ of their strategy might occur if they do not press hard against Kiev. and claims that several foreign powers are considering economic sanctions against Russia. discredited Soviet practice to a new. And now we see the murderers at work. The real fight is for the heart of Russia. Such is the rhetoric of a country that is preparing to smash Ukraine. Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov has publicly stated. worst of all. Germany depends on Russian natural gas for winter heating. The famous KGB defector.‖ Let‘s not be too hasty. Watch and see if the Western media begins to identify the Ukrainian patriotic cause with anti-Semitism. Secretary of State John Kerry is headed to Kiev. 349. however. Although Russian officials deny or make no comment when asked about this invasion. warned of Moscow‘s long range strategy in 1984 with the following paragraph: ―The dialectic of this [Kremlin] offensive consists of a calculated shift from the old. So the real fight is political. The criminals who rule Russia have survived by killing and murdering. In January the Russian Deputy Defense Minister Pavel Popov warned that a US-China-Japan Pacific War was ―just weeks away. with a social democratic façade. Russian troops have occupied Crimea. belittles the courage and political work of Ukrainian patriots. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn once said the path of murder is the path of the lie.‘ At a later phase they will shift to a variation of the Czechoslovakian takeover of 1948. At the same time.
the media and economic system. It has always been the untold story. There is no career advancement in such analysis. In that event they might well decide on a Sino-Soviet ‗reconciliation.‘ At that point the shift in the political and military balance would be plain for all to see. the Soviet Empire remains intact through the operation of hidden structures.‖ [p. KGB-controlled opposition was the story in 1989 and 1991. It is a war that has reached critical mass. It will continue to be untold until the hidden Soviet Union is . Therefore. Bad news isn‘t really marketable under the shopping mall regime. especially in Western countries where the powers-that-be hear what they want to hear. many of whom pretended to be enemies of the government. The moneyed classes want to invest in the newly liberated countries of the ―former‖ Soviet empire. The analysis here is simple to do. but then. I will end with a quote from KGB Major Golitsyn: ―Before long. The United States has only been under Soviet rule a few years. American socialism (like Soviet socialism) is nonetheless a corrupt bureaucratic system where government leaders are unaccountable even as private property and personal freedoms are unprotected. He was an important person in CIA history. a war has broken out in Eastern Europe between ―the hidden Soviet Union. that is. and key government posts. with far-reaching ramifications. Because of the KGB‘s ability to infiltrate Moscow's opposition. The KGB of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics relied on Tsarist methods of controlled opposition and networks of secret agents. It is hard to say exactly how this will be played. As of today. all revolutions or political changes in former East Bloc countries are a puzzle. Even if my joke (above) involves a slight exaggeration.‘ The scissors strategy would give way to the strategy of ‗one clenched fist.One cannot rule out a massive and coordinated offensive by Russia and China.‖ as Boris Chykulay calls it. 346] The Hidden USSR Commentary of 24 February 2014 Last week Tennent ―Pete‖ Bagley passed away. the communist strategists might be persuaded that the balance [of power] had swung irreversibly in their favor. especially in terms of the unraveling of American intelligence which began in the 1960s – an unraveling that brings us to the present crisis which is playing itself out in Kiev and Washington. Ukrainians have learned the secret of successful counterrevolution by living under Soviet rule for many decades. or an escalation of grey terror with a nuclear attack on New York. The appeal to greed has already won them over – end of discussion. after time has passed. Here is a joke: What has happened in Kiev should have already happened in Washington. We can never be sure who has actually won until we see. Any number of moves may be indicated. whether power has really changed hands. but nobody in the West tries doing it. In Russia the socialist system had an additional feature: It made use of an old Tsarist institution – the secret police. and the Ukrainian people. and blot out the rest. whether the old Communist elite remains in charge of the army and police.
This must never be forgotten. Ukrainians have experience. and many deceptions at its command. As Chykulay explained. As the Wikipedia explains. we must first reckon with Merkel‘s Communist past before we reckon with Tymoshenko‘s role as Moscow‘s little helper. . (To know that there is a powerful underground movement. and now Germany is more dependent on Russian natural gas than ever before. saying that German intelligence attempted to warn the Christian Democrats that Merkel was ―a dangerous person. ―Lustration is the government process regulating the participation of former communists. Since that time Walesa‘s secret police codename (BOLEK) has been published (See ―Interview with Historian Slawomir Cenckiewicz: ‗Positive Proof‘ Lech Walesa was a Communist Spy‖). requiring careful analysis and detailed knowledge. for starters. ―We need lustration law to limit the influence of the KGB … [and all remaining Soviet structures]. excepting all those who are secretly working with the Ukrainian underground.taken down. for both women have a peculiar relationship to Moscow which extends far back in time. Consequently. in successor political appointee positions or in civil service positions … after the fall of the various European Communist states…. A German journalist recently wrote to me about Merkel.‖ The Communists like to confuse the political process in every country. A former socialist country must. If we hear that (the conservative) German Chancellor Angela Merkel is now eager to meet with former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. The Ukrainians were Soviets. In 1992 a Fighting Solidarity leader told me that Lech Walesa was a long-time stooge of the Polish secret police. Yulia Tymoshenko in particular. the heads of the security services and military. understanding what is actually happening in Ukraine is a delicate and difficult challenge. and a motivation for playing the Russians at their own game. As for the situation in Ukraine today. many agents. part of which was also a ―Communist Country‖ (i. with the dramatic and apparent collapse of the Yanukovych government. in itself. and as such they had access to the same game the Russians were playing on them. the German Democratic Republic). at long last. One only has to think of Golitsyn's work.. It is the way of the world. especially informants of the communist secret police. This also applies to Germany. So let us fast-forward to the present: What has been happening in Ukraine? Who is on Moscow‘s team in Kiev? Most of the parliament. noted Chykulay. the Ukrainians need to wipe away the hidden Soviet Republic at work beneath the surface of Ukrainian politics. with its own tentacles burrowed into Moscow. access.‖ Chykulay is proposing a lustration law which would prevent ―former‖ Communists from holding public office in Ukraine. I have spoken to schoolmates of Vaclav Havel who described him as the perfect instrument of the Communist state – as a fake dissident and a man who could be trusted by the KGB. or the work of Viktor Suvorov. You can see this in all the cities now with the fall of so many Lenin monuments. resemble a ―wilderness of mirrors.‖ But the Christian Democrats didn‘t listen.) The Kremlin has many weapons. who explained the situation as follows: ―Instinctively people know that they fight against a hidden USSR. paving the way for a fresh start. is not mere optimism.e. I had the chance to speak with Ukrainian activist Boris Chykulay .‖ Lustration would be an important tool in restricting Communist access to power in Ukraine.‖ To fix what is wrong with Ukraine. who has recently been let out of prison.
‖ The Kremlin has. they already describe the Ukrainian government as something separate from the Ukrainian people.‘‖ Is there danger of Ukraine coming under direct attack? Could the Russians intervene with troops? ―Yes.‘ So you see. The case of Georgia in 2008 is a prime example. the gangster clan will take over and nothing will change. The internet leaves them at a loss. the politicians who are now coming forward to direct affairs are former SovietKomsomol leaders (now in parliament). They are demanding a total reset. The Lunatic and the Narcissist .‖ Chykulay replied. but Maidan has good tactics and refuses to be fooled by Kremlin stooges. the people will not accept the leaders‘ attempts to wiggle out. In this way they stop the progress of the opposition. ‗Dear Ukrainians. The revolution has been won.―The problem we now face. War is the last resort. They first kill this guy. I won‘t let the government hurt you anymore. without any changes. Now he starts to work with normal agents. Of course. The Kremlin has many devices.‖ Chykulay said. these ―normal Soviet agents‖ are telling the Maidan protestors to go home. in all seriousness. One is chewed up after another. Then they cut the forest in another direction. Which will emerge as the new leader? Perhaps the controlled opposition game has exhausted its possibilities in Ukraine. They want to save the hidden Soviet structures. they have things under control. Time will tell. This morning Maidan had a massive meeting about Tymoshenko. She doesn‘t say the Ukrainians have any part in the government. Western Ukraine is a potential target. The Ukrainians are therefore told. They feel in control. If she comes back. The only problem with carrying out such a military strike has to do with the reliability of the Russian troops and the reaction of Europe. then the next. through Yulia Tymoshenko and others. but they are losing control beneath the surface. they said. it is true. indeed. Previous attempts at freedom have been thwarted. ―They are trying to keep the old system.‖ There is a cautious optimism on the part of Ukrainian activists. of course. ―They will say the people in Lviv are fascists. ‗you won‘t be attacked. threatened to invade any former Soviet country where the rights of the local Russian-speaking minority are not respected. A Ukrainian analyst explained it thus: ―As it happens. They called it an ‗action meeting‘ which was held against the return of Tymoshenko to politics. and many tricks to play before things reach such an extremity.‖ The anti-Communist counter-revolution in Ukraine grows in power. ―is that Putin merely says goodbye to Mafiosi Yanukovych. ―This organization [the KGB] always has everything under control. She said. These are not democrats by any stretch of the imagination. According to Chykulay. without any result. Moscow sends its puppets into the meat-grinder.‖ he explained. the most committed Communists of the old system.‖ As another activist added. ―Russia will try to control Ukraine through its old network. and they will depict the Ukrainians as right wing extremists. they want to close the case. According to Chykulay.
they will slip through in the end. The conservative politician (if any yet exists) cannot prevent these people from making headway. Anyone who thinks in this way is a reactionary bigot. In plain truth. The disease must work its way through the body politic. We have allowed ourselves to be intimidated by errant nonsense.Commentary of 18 February 2014 The Western world has gone mad. The madness of socialism must prevail. cui bono? Let it suffice to say that America does not benefit from the six policies listed above.

If they cannot bankrupt the government now. Those not infected with socialism – those who have noticed the raging epidemic around them – are bewildered. promote infanticide. Here is the main thing: Today‘s social policy has become a strategic battlefield upon which our enemy plays at sabotage. new grievances are invented and new laws are passed. whose partisans once favored the Viet Cong and who opposed the Vietnam War not because they were pacifists.

and much more than an ideology. the socialist empowers government at every level to break free from checks and balances. The United States is (or was) the richest country in the world and must be punished accordingly. He only sees the tragic circumstances of human life down through the centuries.‖ Those who think Russia is promoting Christianity or a new and enlightened spirituality. . and for the redistribution of wealth. As many thinkers have attested. and Caesarism…. He does not recognize his ideology as the sociological malware of a hostile foreign empire. Socialism seeks to eradicate ―superstition. How does the socialist presume to eliminate sorrow and make heaven on earth? In the last analysis he believes this can be achieved through the power of the state. ―the theory of materialism holds that all things are composed of material.

He does not see that socialism is slowly but surely destroying society. free will and responsibility. however. and the environmental calamities about to befall. who when asked whether he believed in God made the following reply: ―I believe in the power of man. For the same reason it is no accident that the socialist prefers American nuclear disarmament. In all of this. and that all emergent phenomena (including consciousness) are the result of material properties and interactions. socialism does not merely seek to impose economic controls on the free market. He is sure they will vote for socialism. by education or entertainment.S. Reality is a ferocious chaos which the socialist state mirrors. for the eradication of the U. therefore. To save the planet we cannot afford liberty. for he prefers Russian nuclear dominance to U. As a materialist philosophy. To save the planet we must have a government powerful enough to trample down the rich. Socialism sees man‘s appearance on earth as evolutionary happenstance. no divine plan. The socialist does not see any danger stemming from his beliefs. no built-in meaning for the socialist. More than half a century ago Carl Jung wrote the following passage about socialism in his book Aion: Researches into the Phenomenology of Self. it will trample all who disagree with its dictates – especially (when their turn comes) the poor. and the injustices.‖ By harping on the tragedies in our midst. Materialism signifies the negation of man‘s spirit. establishing its supremacy either gradually or suddenly.

The materialism of the socialist may be seen in the raw cynicism of Vladimir Putin.‖ The socialists should not be considered as faithful partners of Islam or Buddhism. is socialism‘s claim of being a scientific movement based on materialist philosophy. We must now perform it until bankruptcy swallows us. It everywhere uproots Christianity. Constitution. or to save the planet from global warming. All religions are destined for the socialist chopping block. but it is much more than a mental state. I must ask the reader – cui bono? It is no accident that the socialist wants to amnesty the illegal aliens.not matter that other countries do not perform this charity. There is no Providence. if Marxian socialism denies life after death and the existence of God.

If only superficial outward appearances conform to the accepted error. Collective hysteria calls for collective therapy. quite the contrary. Kindle edition. Such a person identifies with his environment. Loss of roots and lack of tradition neuroticize the masses and prepare them for collective hysteria. Yet the socialist is able to impose his delusions on the whole country. say Vaknin and Rangelovska. which consists in [the] abolition of liberty and terrorization. states tend to develop less into prisons than into lunatic asylums. Here is a partial explanation as to why our leaders are unable to come to grips with the strategic realities of today. His inner world is. materialism promotes a mass break with reality which can be readily observed. the narcissist will be unshakable in following this path to self-destruction. The question next occurs: Might socialism be a direct result of narcissistic personality disorder. in a manner of speaking. From the hysterical belief that man-made global warming has resulted in record-cold winters to the bizarre insistence that homosexuality is ―normal. But in regard to neuroses that is not the case at all. One has a personality disorder when one‘s habits substitute for one‘s identity. With hygiene and prosperity alone a man is still far from health. and cognitive cues exclusively from it. this has already happened. According to Sam Vaknin and Lidija Rangelovska. the sinister reality of which is now being demonstrated before our eyes by the splitting of our world: the destruction of the Godimage is followed by the annulment of the human personality. (The Malignant Self. Where rationalistic materialism holds sway.

Yet the more significant depression is spiritual. . The feminist – as a woman trapped in a woman‘s body – is at war with the authentically feminine. (Page 181) Being part of the socialist revolutionary matrix. ―is incapable of loving and of living. and social calamity must be the result. As Jung explained.‖ (Page 109) Here lurks the cause of that malignant self-love which plagues us today. Here the misconstrued feminine compels the masculine to surrender its dominant role. and to depress the economy. the indoctrinated feminist would make every heterosexual marriage into a homosexual coupling.…the present tendency to destroy all [spiritual] tradition or render it unconscious could interrupt the normal process of development for several hundred years and substitute an interlude of barbarism. Wherever the Marxist utopia prevails. such as is the usual thing nowadays. A neurotic of this type is obsessed with a false idea of life. But a predominantly scientific and technological education.

The socialist conception of liberation requires a war against motherhood even more than it requires a war against the patriarchy. To disorient an instinctive being with regard to its true nature is to make derangement the foundation of all. dominance. It is crucial to every socialist policy. but even more. ―the counter-revolutionary finds a basically unchanging human nature because it is shaped once and for all by God. which we all possess. . (The Malignant Self. Here the lesbian assumes the same role in the culture war as the panzer division assumed in the last world war. awakens to the truth of the opposite proposition. To break woman must be the first priority of the socialist revolution. As they are flexible. As distinct from healthy narcissism. the feminist is disoreinted. For what purpose is this derangement accomplished? It is to advance the cause of socialist revolution. impermanence. The vague and blurred horizon of the promised utopia lends grandeur and self-importance to the smallminded malevolence of a thwarted egotist who also happens to be a nihilist. dissolution. death. It denies what is eternal – what Russell Kirk referred to as ―the permanent things. It denies the soul. The great advance of socialism in our society has therefore occurred by trampling down mom. rigid. ―The revolutionary finds that man and woman possess no nature.

The masculinization of woman simultaneously effects the denigration of man and the disintegration of human personality. where the narcissist (through the exercise of power) becomes the lunatic. with man transfigured into God.

but the already very great changes which it has caused in the mind of the directing classes. and far more effective than atomic bombs. a terrible hell…. The revolutionary momentum points to the answer: Tomorrow‘s Republicans will be Communists. The modern bourgeoisie are no longer sure of their rights. no! It will be a hell. eternal felicity should reign on earth and paradise descend. What makes it so threatening is not the very insignificant changes which it has so far produced in the popular mind. socialism is destined to widen its influence. Our anti-Communists. It was let loose by the nobility and the ruling class. which will be quickly followed by that of its fall.‖ The immediate fate of the nation which shall first see the triumph of socialism may be traced in a few lines. capitalists and members of the wealthy class…. Let us be honest. They never understood themselves. which are the cement of society and without which no human association has hitherto been able to exist…. The subversives and revolutionaries in our midst have succeeded in using legitimate issues as a front by which to smuggle revolution in the back way. . Social upheavals always are begun from above. If today‘s Republicans are more liberal than yesterday‘s Democrats. A party whose policies are founded on selfdeception and misunderstanding cannot hold onto power. ―Before the hour of its triumph.

Alas. The socialists‘ dream being accomplished. The fact that the ―conservative‖ Republican congress of 1999 was far more leftist than the Democratic Congress of 1980 demonstrates this fact in the most dramatic manner possible (See Tim Groseclose‘s book.

Nevertheless. it will come.not counting my time at Newsmax. and we should examine it more closely -. back in 1999 I didn't think the Republic would continue another 15 years.

Every question leads to another question. homosexual marriage will no longer be an issue.A man is not a socialist without hating some person or thing…. the frightful system would appear to be inevitable. Feminism will be discarded. . Even if the Russians and Chinese plow the rubble and harvest their pillage. despite what happens. The testimony of defector Jan Sejna speaks to this. misery. is inevitable. and Caesarism are the fatal precipices to which all the roads of the socialists lead. the grand strategy of the Communist Bloc always envisioned a "transitional progressive president" whose reign would fortuitously coincide with a severe economic crisis. When this happens. Now comes the freedom to delve deeper into forbidden subjects. Of course. Man returns to himself. But here we are. with the old dispensationapparently in place. Whether it is brought by persons now living or persons yet unborn. Whether that victory comes in ten years or fifty. The embodiment of annihilation does not gain by annihilating. Here we begin to glimpse the sociology of the counter-revolution. multiculturalism will remembered as an absurd craze. nobody will want to be associated with socialist slogans.

He called upon Russia to honor its international commitments, to send it military forces back to Russian bases, and to refrain from any further interference in Ukraine.
Rasmussen also urged both sides to reach a peaceful resolution through diplomatic talks and suggested that international observers from the United Nations should be sent to Ukraine.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office said Putin had accepted a proposal to establish a "fact-finding mission" to Ukraine, possibly under the leadership of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and to start a political dialogue.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon dispatched a special envoy to Ukraine Sunday evening, a spokesman for his office said.
Lean to the West, or to Russia?
Ukraine, a nation of 45 million people sandwiched between Europe and Russia's southwestern border, has been plunged into chaos since the ouster of President Viktor Yanukovych on February 22 following bloody street protests that left dozens dead and hundreds wounded.
Russia OKs military force in Ukraine Kiev: Russia's move is direct aggression Anti-government protests started in late November when Yanukovych spurned a deal with the EU, favoring closer ties with Moscow instead.
Ukraine has faced a deepening split, with those in the west generally supporting the interim government and its European Union tilt, while many in the east prefer a Ukraine where Russia casts a long shadow.
Nowhere is that feeling more intense than in Crimea, the last big bastion of opposition to the new political leadership. Ukraine suspects Russia of fomenting tension in the autonomous region that might escalate into a bid for separation by its Russian majority.
Ukrainian leaders and commentators have compared events in Crimea to what happened in Georgia in 2008. Then, cross-border tensions with Russia exploded into a five-day conflict that saw Russian tanks and troops pour into the breakaway territories of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, as well as Georgian cities. Russia and Georgia each blamed the other for starting the conflict.
By Sunday night, electricity had been cut off at the headquarters of the Ukrainian Navy in Crimea, and officials feared there could soon be an attack, Seleznyov said.
CNN has not independently verified that claim, and Russian officials could not be immediately reached to respond.
Word of the power outage came hours after the newly named head of Ukraine's navy disavowed Ukraine's new leaders and declared his loyalty to the pro-Russian, autonomous Crimea government.
Rear Adm. Denis Berezovsky, who was appointed Saturday by interim Ukrainian President Oleksandr Turchynov, said from Sevastopol on the Black Sea that he will not submit to any orders from Kiev.
He was quickly suspended and replaced by another rear admiral, the Defense Ministry in Kiev said in a written statement.
These scenes come one day after Putin obtained permission from his parliament to use military force to protect Russian citizens in Ukraine, spurning Western pleas not to intervene.
Putin cited in his request a threat posed to Russian citizens and military personnel based in southern Crimea.
Ukrainian officials have vehemently denied Putin's claim.
Western governments worried
The crisis set off alarm bells in the West and fueled a stern rebuke from the leaders of the G7 nations of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
In a statement Sunday, they condemned Russia's "clear violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine," saying they were temporarily suspending activities related to preparation for June's G8 Summit in Sochi, Russia.
Canada recalled its ambassador to Moscow.
Senior Obama administration officials Sunday portrayed Russia's intervention in Ukraine as weak, describing it in a conference call with reporters as a kind of desperate measure from a man who realizes he has lost support of the international community.
When asked what concrete measures the administration has taken to signal its strong opposition to Russian involvement in Ukraine, the officials noted that planning meetings about the upcoming G8 summit in Sochi had been canceled. In the long term, economic sanctions could be employed, they said. The officials declined to be more specific about what those sanctions might involve.
In discussions over the weekend with Putin, Obama "made clear that Russia's continued violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would negatively impact Russia's standing in the international community," according to a statement released by the White House.
During that call, one administration official said, Putin did not "slam the door" to the idea that international monitors could travel to Ukraine to make sure violence doesn't flare up, one official said.
According to the Kremlin, Putin told Obama that Russia reserves the right to defend its interests in the Crimea region and the Russian-speaking people who live there.
Obama met Sunday with his national security team and called U.S. allies afterward, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.
British Prime Minister David Cameron said he and Obama were of the same mind when they spoke on Sunday.
"We agreed Russia's actions are unacceptable and there must be significant costs if they don't change course," Cameron posted on his verified Twitter account.
Cameron also planned to talk with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite and Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk.
Britain's Foreign Minister William Hague arrived Sunday in Kiev, where he will meet with Ukraine leaders.

Because of President Xi Jinping‘s fears of Zhou Yongkang. Whatdoesitmean. but which broke into the open last year with the prosecution of Yongkang‘s protégé and Central Politburo Member Bo Xilai who was sentenced to life imprisonment last September (2013) for corruption. and for his consolidation of control over the PLA. a veteran military commander with expertise in anti-terror maneuvers. the once-impregnable fortresses of the big state-owned oil giants. this report says. however. the recent decision by Chinese leader Xi Jinping to prosecute retired security tsar Zhou Yongkang‘s son Zhou Bin for corruption is the ―leading impetus‖ that has led to a fracturing of loyalties in the People‘s Liberation Army (PLA) between those advocating immediate strikes against Japan and those cautioning a more strategic and diplomatic course of action in a number of territorial disputes between these two nations. Zhou Yongkang. is a retired senior leader of the CPC and ―no small fish‖ from the province of Sichuan where he was once the top official and headed the ―petroleum mafia‖. this report continues. China and Japan ―within weeks‖ due to a power struggle currently exploding within the Communist Party of China (CPC). are ―too little and too late‖ as Chinese military forces still loyal to the former Security Minister are even now planning ―deliberate and provocative‖ actions against . and yet another move to consolidate his grip of the armed forces. According to this report.

One such provocative action against the United States by PLA forces loyal to Zhou Yongkang cited by General Popov in this report lists a 5 December 2013 confrontation in the South China Sea between Chinese and US naval warships that nearly led to conflict and which President Xi Jinping was unaware of until protests against China were lodged by the US State Department. nevertheless a Chinese-Japanese war could break out over matters Westerners deem inconsequential. Brazil. but with no one truly knowing who speaks for the PLA. With China saying to America that they‘re so serious about this conflict that they‘re prepared to take the risks of being provocative in order to persuade the Obama administration to take seriously that they want to change the current order. was the warning issued to Japan earlier by PLA factions loyal to Zhou Yongkang that a ―firm response‖ could be expected if Japan attacks Chinese ships.

‖ Shen said. so rather than orienting itself towards a total war it cannot win. this report concludes. Bitter rhetoric between the neighbors has spiked since Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made a late-December visit to a war shrine in Tokyo that outraged Beijing. a move that matches both President Xi Jinping‘s and Zhou Yongkang‘s goals too. The zone is a ―purely defensive measure that conforms to international practice.China is keenly aware of that fact too. Abe this week compared the tense relationship to the pre-World War I rivalry between Britain and Germany. no matter who wins out in this power struggle. China‘s military strategy serves a smaller. but shrewder purpose — pushing the United States out of China‘s backyard. Japanese officials say the comment was meant as a warning to avoid war.

They will affect classes in history. a sensitive topic for Asian neighbors such as South Korea and China. which it said were teaching children a false claim to the islets. which are at the center of a dispute with China and reiterate Tokyo‘s stance that these are an integral part of Japanese territory and there is no dispute over their ownership.‖ he told a news conference. but are not legally binding. .
