Brainwashing in America: ‘WHY FEW DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY”! (Part 1)-Posted On Tea Party Command Center-By Jake Martinez-On March 21, 2014:
CAN “PROGRESSIVE ILLUSIONISM” BE DEFEATED?
(Mar. 26, 2014) — Approximately two weeks ago, radio host Andrea Shea King interviewed native Ukrainian political activist and satirist Oleg Atbashian, owner of the website “The People’s Cube,” about the volatile and deadly situation in Ukraine.
Atbashian had appeared on King’s show previously as well as on numerous other radio shows including Blaze TV, PJTV, the Dr. Rich Swier Show, and the Republic Broadcasting Network, among others. He grew up in the former Soviet Union under communism and came to the United States in 1994, three years after the 74-year-old empire, begun under Vladimir Lenin in 1917 with the Russian Revolution, toppled.
Last month, Russian paramilitary forces invaded Crimea with the alleged purpose of “protecting ethnic Russians in the region against Ukrainian authorities.”
The U.S. and other Western nations consider the Russians to have committed a violation of international law by invading Crimea, after which Obama issued a “threat” to impose sanctions on Russia. Located on the Black Sea, Crimea is known as a vacation resort with temperate winters and lovely summers.
While Obama claimed that Putin’s “action violates Ukraine’s sovereignty,” he has used the pejorative term “sovereign citizen” against those concerned about corruption within the United States government and their own local communities. Many Americans believe that the sovereignty of the U.S. has suffered under the Obama regime.
On March 19, Atbashian stated on his website that Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov had tweeted a mockery of Obama, depicting him as wearing a Russian military uniform “seen on various Russian websites and forums since he first became president.” Atbashian noted that The Huffington Post first reported the tweet but quickly removed its story, replacing it with another about Aksyonov.
As to Putin’s move to send troops into Crimea, a former Russian government adviser opined that “The debate about the legality of the referendum in Crimea will ramble on for a while but it is very difficult to imagine how the result can now be reversed,” describing Obama’s “smart sanctions” as “an anti-climax and a confirmation of a total lack of any desire on the part of the West to take the fight with Russia any further.”
Atbashian believes that much of the news reaching Western media about the conflict is a result of Russian propaganda. He cited a March 17 Forbes article as “very credible and scary” which reported that a former Putin adviser stated that “Putin has already declared war on Kiev,” the capital of Ukraine. According to the former aide, “Putin’s war is being conducted by Russian Spetsnaz (special operations) forces and KGB (now called FSB) agents and is aimed at toppling the pro-Western government in Kiev. The Spetsnaz forces’ orders include the sowing of civil unrest throughout Ukraine via strikes, demonstrations, staged incidents, and street battles. Putin’s subversive forces will also gin up neo-Nazi incidents with Nazi regalia and Swastikas on full display. Their orders include as well the deliberate killing of Russian soldiers and of ethnic Russian civilians to prove the hatred and extremism of radical Ukrainian nationalists. These orders come from Putin himself. Their goal is to create an image of intolerable chaos and loss of civil authority to justify a Russian takeover of all Ukraine. Putin’s goal is the destruction of pro-Western authority in Ukraine, the total humiliation of the West, and a makeover of the geopolitical balance.”
According to a Ukrainian travel website, Kiev, or “Kyiv,” as it is known in Russian, is a center for world art, architecture and history with an opera house featuring live plays, ballets and operas in the Ukrainian or Russian languages. Kiev became the capital of ancient Rus while it was settled by Slavs prior to the year 1000 and was considered a portal between eastern Europe and the West.
Nineteenth-century Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky wrote a famous suite for piano “inspired by Russian history” titled “Pictures at an Exhibition” which included a movement called “The Great Gate of Kiev.“ The composition has since been arranged for orchestra by French composer Maurice Ravel and many others.
Atbashian has recently been interviewed by America’s Survival’s Cliff Kincaid and Breitbart. He is a columnist at The Washington Times and an artist who once created propaganda posters for the former Soviet Union, now using his talent to parody current events, legislation, and political propaganda.
On March 5, he told Kincaid that he sees the threat of Marxism, under which he was raised, rising in America (16:00), and the continuation of blame assigned to former President George W. Bush for America’s ills. In 2010, Atbashian authored a book titled “Shakedown Socialism” to expose “the fallacy of economic equality” stemming from “progressive illusionism.”
As a young man, Atbashian voluntarily went to Siberia to work “because they had large deposits of oil. They needed workers, not just oil workers, but if you have oil workers there, you also need construction workers and road-builders, people supplying them with food and products, and you need schools and teachers…they were paying double the salary of what would they would pay in the mainland, so that encouraged a lot of people to come because the salaries were really meager around the country.”
Under the Soviets, Siberia had been a penal colony where people were consigned to work in coal-mining and construction. Siberia is known for its harsh climate and is believed to be the source of the extreme cold experienced by much of the United States this winter.
Atbashian emigrated to the United States and became politically active after the 9/11 attacks, which he witnessed as a resident of New York City at the time.
At the beginning of The Post & Email’s interview with Atbashian, it was discovered that we hold two things in common: an Armenian father and Ukrainian mother and knowledge of “only a few words of Armenian.”
[Editor’s Note: While this writer’s parents are of Armenian and Ukrainian descent, respectively, both were born in the United States and were U.S. citizens at the time of her birth, making her a “natural born Citizen,” according to a U.S. Supreme Court opinion.]
During the first century A.D., the apostles St. Bartholomew and St. Thaddeus brought Christ’s message to what was then Armenia, and the nation became the first to make Christianity the official state faith through the Armenian Apostolic Church.
Atbashian was born in 1960, seven years after Soviet dictator Josef Stalin died. He told us that at that time, “Things had loosened up in Russia, but it was still a police state.”
On March 14, Atbashian wrote a report about a young man who was killed in violence between Russians and Ukrainians in Donetsk in eastern Ukraine. Russia has since “annexed” Crimea, a section of Ukraine which held a referendum last Sunday as to whether or not to remain part of Ukraine or to join the Russian Federation. In his article, Atbashian stated that Russian propaganda has resulted in the popular beliefs that “(a) The Ukrainian revolution was the result of a vast Western-Zionist conspiracy against Russia; (b) all pro-Ukrainian demonstrators are violent Nazis, fascists, and traitors who have been paid with dollars by their American, European, and Zionist masters; and (c) the demonstrators are all intruders from Western Ukraine, the land of hateful worshipers of the ‘Nazi collaborator’ Stepan Bandera.”
The results of the March 16 referendum were reportedly 97% in favor of joining the Russian Federation. In an article cited by Atbashian, Russian soldiers without uniforms were reported arrested by Ukrainian forces on the same day.
On March 22, The New York Times reported that “Russian forces pushed Saturday to complete their expulsion of the Ukrainian military from the disputed Crimean Peninsula, smashing through the gates of a base here with armored vehicles, firing weapons into the air and demanding that the cornered Ukrainian soldiers surrender.”
Of the current situation among Ukraine, Russia and the West, Atbashian told us:
I noticed there’s a tendency in the academic circles to blame America for everything that goes bad in the world, and it borders on the irrational. The US is not perfect, and has a share of stupid politicians, but often times other countries are much worse. There was little that the US could have done with Putin’s idea to unite the country by stirring up jingoistic nationalism inside Russia and creating the image of the West as the evil conniving enemy, which is the easiest road that all wannabe dictators go. I’ve been seeing that develop for years, and now we have the results.
Putin’s goal is a strong Russia, which is great, I only wish the best for that country. But he is not making it strong by fostering growth on the grassroots level. He divides the economy among those oligarchs who stay loyal to him, while destroying those who dare oppose him. In this situation, the only way he can make Russia appear stronger is by undermining and weakening the competition. Hence all the anti-Western propaganda at home and abroad. The KGB used to have a developed network for disseminating and planting disinformation and propaganda in the West, and Putin seems to have brought it back to full speed now, especially with the Ukrainian situation.
Claims that Russia is being constantly provoked by the West are laughable. It’s just like in any group of people some can work with others and take constructive criticism rationally, while some others see the same things and perceive them as personal insults. It’s like saying that a street thug is not guilty for attacking a passer-by who accidentally brushed his shoulder because the passer-by should have been more sensitive to the thug’s sensibilities.
The mistake most observers are making is based on the false EU vs. Russia dichotomy, which is certainly useful to Russia but does not describe the true state of affairs. It’s true that the protests in Ukraine started with Yanukovich’s decision to stay with Russia as opposed to the EU. But from there it went to the demands of the complete overhaul of the corrupt government made of Moscow-backed politicians. If Ukraine doesn’t distance itself from Moscow, it will forever remain in its shadow – a small, corrupt, dependent, incompetent, and ridiculed Little Russia. It’s time for Ukraine to grow up and act as an independent adult.
I know you’ll say that EU is not better, but has there really been any talk of Ukraine actually joining EU as a member? I thought it was about entering the European economic space only.
When we asked Atbashian what he thought of the relationship between Obama and Putin in light of the invasion of Ukraine, he said:
Putin is playing Obama easily, because Obama is not as competent as we were promised. We were promised that he would fill the government with the brightest, most advanced thinkers, that we would have a great economy and prosperity, complete peace and sunshine. That all turned out to be a big utopia, pie-in-the-sky, a dream that never happened and can never happen, because all those people that he put in charge were overrated. The ones running the State Department are incompetent. It started with Hillary and now it’s John Kerry. Victoria Nuland, who’s handling Eurasian relations, is also incompetent. Obama himself was described as the ‘voracious consumer of intelligence’ by one of his sycophants. Apparently, that is not true, because as you can see, Putin has outclassed him and outplayed him on the international stage easily.
One of Putin’s main instruments is propaganda. The KGB was very savvy in developing propaganda; that was a large part of their campaign, and the influencing of people’s minds was more important than espionage or conducting any type of subversive operations or sabotage. The KGB had a very highly developed technology for developing propaganda material and distributing it around the world, planting disinformation lies in Western media. That went away for a little while after the Cold War ended and the Soviet Union fell apart, and of course, the major part of the KGB was inherited by Russia and renamed the FSB. For a while, they had a lot of domestic things to worry about, and domestically, they’ve done well. They’ve quenched most of the corruption that ended the lawless period in Russia, but at the same time, the FSB basically covered the protection racket and they themselves became the big protection racket.
They had a developed network of distributing information, lies and distortions. It subsided for a while, but now Putin has brought it back, even doubling down with Ukraine. They have also mastered the internet and social media. So Russian stories have been planted all over the Western media. I’ve seen a clip, because I go to Russian websites, and I have seen a German comedy show that was ridiculing Ukraine, the Ukrainian revolution, and Putin, and it sounded like something that was paid for by Russian intelligence, then it was translated into Russian and posted in Russian.
There are armies of paid internet trolls who have been active on the Russian internet for a long time. It was really disgusting to see it everywhere. They weren’t allowing any discussion to go on; they were immediately insulting, and a lot of that was based on anti-Semitic rhetoric, an ultra-nationalist, jingoistic rhetoric, and gay-bashing, too. If Ukraine wanted to join Europe, as it claimed, then “Europe was all taken over by gays and that meant that those Ukrainian revolutionaries must have been gay themselves, and so you shouldn’t be supporting them.” That was the main idea.
At some point, this propaganda started spreading West. There are armies of trolls who go to different websites, Facebook, YouTube, anywhere. I’ve noticed it even at my Facebook account – that people will suddenly pop out. If one of the discussions is about Ukraine, suddenly I have visitors who have never been there before and they immediately start posting their side of the story, calling whatever I say false. If you go to YouTube, it’s full of those comments. Some of the bloggers, even the right-wing bloggers, are falling for it.
THE COMING ENSLAVEMENT OF COMMUNISM!-Posted on NewsWithViews.com-By Kelleigh Nelson-On March 25, 2014:
“...if ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams
A few weeks ago, my friend, Tom, sent me an email that I shared with my lists. It was profound, and it told about Tom’s conversation in a WalMart with an immigrant from communist Romania. It was my friend Tom, who originally wrote this up and sent it to his friends. The WalMart conversation was about our coming enslavement, and how very far down the road we’ve gone towards Communism. We’ve had Soviet agents and communists in our federal and state governments for decades. One need only read, Henry Kissinger, Soviet Agent, by Frank A. Capell, to see the depths of deception by the mass media, the elitists in power, and the puppet masters, in destroying our Republic.
I do believe the patriots of America have delayed the total conquest. Despite the daily destruction of our freedoms and liberties, their plans have been derailed and the delay has angered them. When you read the following story, I would hope it would encourage you to keep up the fight, to tell the truth to your friends and neighbors, and to pray to God to give us a Nineveh. As my friend Sally said to me this morning, “We either need a revival or another revolution.” You be the judge. Here is the story, entitled,
COMMUNISM AT WALMART
The following is a true story about a recent experience I had while shopping at the local WalMart. I hope you find it as eye-opening as I did.
One recent, busy afternoon at WalMart, I finished shopping and headed for the checkout lanes to complete my visit. The lines were quite long so I found myself wishing that I had started with a shopping cart because my arms were already getting tired from the heavy load. Most of the people ahead of me had full carts so I figured that I was in for a long, tedious wait. Suddenly a little bearded man appeared behind me, and then quickly stepped into the line next to me as he surveyed the other lanes looking for the shortest wait. His unique appearance caught my attention. He looked like a person one might imagine seeing at a foreign market. He wore a tight fitting green tweed sport coat, a little hat, and had a long pointed beard. His cheeks were darkly tanned and deeply wrinkled. His eyes looked intelligent, the best I could tell. As he darted between lines evaluating his options I said to him, “You can’t win.” He smiled and fell into line behind me. “Now perhaps I could speak to him,” I thought to myself, but before I was able to do so another younger man fell into line behind him and the two started speaking in a language I was not familiar with. Now, I can identify a half dozen or more languages, but this one was completely unfamiliar to me, so I seized the opportunity and blurted out, “Now that’s a language I am not familiar with.” The younger, more western looking man replied, “We are speaking Romanian,” rolling his “R’s” as you would imagine. Finally this conversation was off and running and we would have plenty of time because of the long line, if only my arms would hold out!
“You are both from Romania?” I asked. “Yes,” the younger man replied. Being curious about the older gentleman who had first caught my attention, I nodded in his direction and asked, “Does he speak English too?” The younger man’s reply was, “My father does speak English, but when I am around he prefers for me to do the speaking.” “So this is your father?” I asked. The son smiled and nodded in the affirmative. “Were you born here?” I asked the son. “No, I was born in Romania. I was 14 when we immigrated to the United States in 1982.” With a little quick math in my head I had the son pegged at around 43 years old, which corresponded with his appearance. That would place his father at perhaps somewhere around 70. Wanting to make this conversation count, I asked “Wasn’t Romania a communist country for most of your lives?” “Yes, Romania was put under Russian communist control in 1947,” the son replied.
“What was it like living under communism?” I asked. “There were good things and bad things about it,” he said. Surprised that there could have been anything good about it I asked, “What was good about it?!” “Well, the government controlled the currency so there was no inflation and there were no taxes.” “No taxes?” I asked. “Yes, the government owns everything to start with so they don’t have to tax you, they just give you what they want to give you. My father is a farmer. They took his land away from him and made him work on a government collective farm.”
“Do you think America will fall to communism eventually?” I asked, hoping they wouldn’t mind such a far-flung, probing question. “It’s already started here and it’s moving fast. It will be worse here,” he said. What a time for the cashier to be asking me, “Will that be all, sir,” when I was just getting started with two Romanians who had fled communism after being forced to live under it. From here on, it was going to be a matter of following these two living legends out of the WalMart store and across the parking lot so I could hear the rest of the story.
As we turned to go out the doors, I said confidently, “There is a difference here in America, you know. Americans are armed. They will not allow such a takeover.” He replied, “It doesn’t matter. The Romanian people believed very strongly that Romania would never submit to communism, but it happened quickly. The Romanian people were armed, but it didn’t matter. Communists use informants. They get neighbors to report on their neighbors who have guns, then the authorities come and seize them. They use torture to get compliance. Many Romanian men were burned alive for not turning over their guns, and some didn’t even have guns, but the authorities burned them anyway just to strike fear in the rest. You have to understand that communists use a lot of torture.”
My heart quickened as I listened to these live witnesses tell me the inside story about a communist takeover. I tried one more time, “You don’t understand, Americans are armed with a lot more guns and a lot more ammunition than other countries.” He repeated, “It doesn’t matter. They have more soldiers than you have bullets, besides in this country they have sophisticated means. Americans will not stand a chance against this government any more than we did. Your guns will be good for one thing – looters. When things get bad enough you will need your guns to keep looters away from what you have. In Katrina there were a lot of people killed by looters because they did not have guns to defend themselves. For a while you will need guns to protect yourself from other Americans. Eventually the government will confiscate all of them.”
By now we had walked to their car, a nice midsized sedan and I stood there feeling kind of glum. This was a whole lot more than I came to WalMart for. On a lighter note I said, “You weren’t here in America back then, but this was really a great country back in the 50’s and 60’s and even the 70’s and 80’s.” He said, “Oh, I know! It was a great country in 1982 when my parents sacrificed everything they had in the world to bring us here. We were even required to permanently denounce our Romanian citizenship in order to be allowed to leave Romania. I know many other international people. Five years ago they would still sacrifice everything to come here, but now it is different. Now they ask, ‘What is going on in America?’ It has changed and people are not making the sacrifice as much because what they are fleeing from is coming here now.”
He pointed to his father, the curious-looking little man who was the genesis of our whole conversation, who had dutifully stood alongside and listened to this entire conversation without saying a word, and the son said, “My father spent 5 years in a Romanian communist prison because of his faith.” “Because of his faith?” I asked. The son said, “My father was drafted into the Romanian army by the communists in 1950 and required to take an oath to kill any enemy of the government. Because of his faith he refused to take the oath so he was sent to prison from 1950 until 1955. And when I say ‘prison,’ it was not like what we have here, with four walls and 3 meals. It was outdoors, like a Nazi concentration camp. When someone would die they would just bury him in the mud.” I stood there on the pavement staring into the father’s eyes as the son told me about his father’s incarceration. It was obvious that the father understood every word that we were saying and that it brought back painful memories. He stared back at me for the longest time. It was like there was a fiber optic cable running between us with much being said without words. I stepped toward the father and extended my hand and he shook it. I didn’t know what else to say at the moment, so I thanked him for telling me his story. He smiled, nodded yes, and got into the car.
I asked the son if he had any suggestions and he said, “Yes. When it happens, don’t fight it. If you go along with them and make the best of it you can do quite well. If you resist you will be tormented, tortured, or hunted down and killed.”
I thanked the son for sharing his story as he got into the car. They drove off and left me standing in the parking lot stunned by the experience. I checked both directions before crossing traffic and walked straight back into WalMart and bought another box of bullets. It’s an American thing.
This story rings very true. If you do not understand what happened in Romania, and what communists are really like, I urge you to purchase the small book, Marx and Satan, by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand. He spent 13 years being tortured by Romanian Marxists because of his faith. [Link]
