Grand Strategy in the Age of Mass Destruction

Will the Real Russian Puppet Please Stand Up?!

Commentary for 26 October 2016I flatly state that Marx was consciously an intellectual swindler for the purpose of maintaining an ideology that would permit him to support violent action against human beings with a show of moral indignation.
– Eric Voegelin, Autobiographical Reflections, [pp. 48]

Those who are familiar with the workings of the Communists are aware that the United States is in jeopardy. They are not fearful if the people of the country awake to the danger. But the enemies of civilization, both those in the Communist party and those on the fringe, who are playing with fire in their support of Communist theories, are at work to effect the overthrow of the government. They are working cleverly, insidiously, and are willing to take plenty of time to accomplish their ends, but their main purpose, the goal toward which they are striving, is the destruction of church,  home, and the state in America and the raising of the Dictatorship of the Proletariat, controlled by Zinoviev and his gang in Moscow, to take the place of the government of the United States. 
– R.M. Witney, Reds In America, 1924, [p. 54]

 Back in 1924 radicals and Russian agents were working to replace the United States Government with a cabal “controlled by Zinoviev and his gang in Moscow….” Today that gang is nominally controlled by Vladimir Putin. And according to Hillary Clinton, speaking during the last presidential debate, Donald Trump is Putin’s guy. She called the Republican candidate for president a “Russian puppet.” In reply Mr. Trump said to Clinton, “No, you’re the Russian puppet.”

The two presidential candidates are accusing each other of being controlled by that same “gang in Moscow” that Whitney was referring to. This is surprising on many levels; first, subversion by Russian communists supposedly died out with the Cold War. Of course, this is a ridiculous myth. There are communists everywhere. They are in the government. They simply refrain from properly labeling themselves. As for the death of communism, nothing like this ever dies unless someone kills its. And nobody killed communism. The communists simply announced that they were going away. Nobody was actually interested in where they went.

According to researcher Trevor Loudon, some of them went to work at the White House. They had names like Bill and Hillary and Barack. And now they want to retain control of the White House for another four years – or preferably, forever. In terms of the deception which allows them to tread this path, it now becomes necessary for them to accuse their domestic opponents of being “Russian puppets.” Of course, Mr. Trump does not have the character of a puppet, and he has yet to help Russia in any tangible way. Furthermore, not only was Hillary Clinton allegedly a communist in her younger days – according to her former associate, Mr. Larry Nichols – she learned at the feet of Saul Alinsky (a man who worked for the advancement of the communist cause). Yet this same woman accuses her opponent of being a Russian puppet. She sounds, in fact, like an anti-communist caricature.

What we find, in this instance, is the apparent abandonment of a political/strategic line of operation in favor of a new line of operation. What occasions this extraordinary shift? The woman who led the “Russian reset,” who gave Russia access to 20 percent of America’s uranium – who exported sensitive technology to Russia – now does a backflip in the air and shapeshifts into Joseph McCarthy.  

How are we to understand this?

Napoleon’s Military Maxim 20 states that “the line of operation should not be abandoned; but it is one of the most skillful maneuvers in war, to know how to change it, when circumstances authorize or render this necessary. An army which changes skillfully its line of operation deceives the enemy, who becomes ignorant where to look for its rear, or upon what weak points it is assailable.”

I believe that Mrs. Clinton’s newfound concern about Russian puppets in high office is a “skillful” maneuver of this kind; one that, indeed, “deceives the enemy”; for in this case the real Russian puppet is Mrs. Clinton. The Russians surely have enough dirt to destroy her career if they wanted to. Then ask yourself why they have refrained from destroying her? Why would the U.S. media, which has been notorious for its decline into cultural Marxism, and for selling itself to Moscow in the days of I.F. Stone and Walter Duranty, be so visibly on Mrs. Clinton’s side?

Given her reckless indiscretions, her many scandals and illegalities, the Russians must have more blackmail on her than anyone. After all, the Russian special services are the best in the world. And if you think Hillary Clinton is a powerful woman, think again. She must bend to the demands of her blackmailers. She does not seek political office out of strength, but out of fearful necessity. Her only path, given so many crimes, is to attain the safety of office. In this matter her blackmailers are eager to help. What good is she to them if she doesn't hold office? So Moscow gives her as much help as possible. In return, her regime must become an American version of the Germany Democratic Republic; that is, a state completely subservient to Russian interests.

Therefore it is imperative that Clinton accuse Trump of being Russia’s puppet. Only in this way can she distance herself from her own unstated program. The greater psychopaths in Moscow, who puppet the little psychopaths in Washington, cannot be altogether pleased at this desperate misdirection; so they have mobilized their navy and have put their citizens on alert. Nuclear world war might break out at any moment.

Russia, from its end, supports Hillary’s accusation against Trump. By many subtle winks and nods, the Russians have implied that Trump is their man. The leading clown of Russia’ s “democratic” circus, Vladimir Zhirinovksy, said in a recent interview, “Americans voting for a president on Nov. 8 must realize that they are voting for peace on Planet Earth if they vote for Trump. But if they vote for Hillary it’s war…. There will be Hiroshimas and Nagasakis everywhere.”

One has to be a simpleton to accept this pronouncement at face value. The looniest politician in Moscow blows kisses at Trump. Is that really supposed to help Mr. Trump? And do Americans like being threatened by Russians? If Trump is a puppet of the Kremlin, then they have given him away. They have bungled their puppetry!

On the other hand, through all of this, they have helped to maintain Clinton’s cover.

And why shouldn’t they help Mrs. Clinton? Russia is in the puppet business, turning flesh and bone into wood and string. The businessman who deals with Russia becomes a puppet. The diplomat who signs treaties with Moscow becomes a puppet. Global warming advocates are puppets. Radical feminists are puppets. Pro-Putin conservatives are puppets. Nazis are puppets. Islamic terrorists are puppets. There are so many puppets in so many places that it’s hard to say where the Russian puppet show ends and reality begins.

Americans have yet to understand the danger. But if they ever caught on, Mrs. Clinton would have to flee the country. Or if the FBI caught sight of her puppet strings – what then? Hillary Clinton would be on the run, and she would not be alone. Another Russian puppet has been in the White House more than seven years now. And he proposed to get rid of all America’s nuclear weapons. He also brought many Russian puppets with him into government, into management – at CIA, at NSA and the Pentagon. They are in the State Department. They are in the Justice Department.

Yes, yes, they are all communists. As Eric Voegelin maintained, these true disciples of Karl Marx yearn “to support violent action against human beings with a show of moral indignation.” Psychopaths always seek victims. Their quest for destruction and revenge is absolute. Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx – they are all cut from the same cloth. They share the same drives – animated by rage and envy, by self-aggrandizement and solipsism. As Russia is the “motherland” of politicized psychopathy it is no wonder that the most extreme violence imaginable is expressed under the guise of Russian (i.e., Soviet) military science. In Marshal V.D. Sokolovskiy’s Soviet Military Strategy we read, “A modern war … will be nuclear, and will be the most destructive war in the history of mankind. The methods of conducting such a war will differ basically from those of past wars, including World War II.” (p. 427, Rand Translation.)

As the conspiracy of the Communists reaches its final climax, exposure and unmasking becomes a very real possibility. Therefore, the Russian missiles must be ready. These alone guarantee that Russia’s puppets will remain safely in power. And if the FBI should move against the traitors, Obama would find it expedient to bomb Syria. When World War III begins, FBI headquarters will be the first Russian target.

It is necessary, now, that Obama and Clinton maintain an ever-ready fiction; that they might go to war with Russia tomorrow. For in this fiction they have a weapon with which to beat down all domestic opposition. It does not matter that America has no interests in Syria. It does not matter that Obama and Clinton have worked to weaken the U.S. military. It only matters that they are in office when the war starts. It only matters that all emergency powers belong to them.

And what about nuclear war?

 Nuclear war satisfies the psychopath’s urge to kill on a grand scale. According to Sokolovskiy’s text, “These aims can be achieved by massive nuclear strikes of the Strategic Missile Troops and the Long Range Air Forces against the most important countries of the enemy coalition, against the regions and targets which form the basis for the enemy’s military and economic power, and against his troop formations.”

The situation is perfectly clear. Clinton calling Trump a “Russian puppet” is the signature event of the 2016 presidential election. It tells us how far the creeping red frontier has advanced.
