Russian Election Intervention Is Nothing New: ‘The Kremlin’s history of backing the losers’!

I wanted to share the following recent thought-provoking article with you because it reveals that, although Russia does not hold free and open elections of its own it has often intervened in America, which does hold free and open elections, a hallmark of a 'democratic republic.' If True-What’s wrong with this picture?-You Decide:

Russian Election Intervention Is Nothing New: ‘The Kremlin’s history of backing the losers’!-Posted on Front Page Magazine-By Lloyd Billingsley-On December 12, 2016:

The CIA is claiming that Russia “intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency,” according to the Washington Post, which identified “actors” with connections to Russian intelligence who were allegedly part of a wider operation “to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances.”

The CIA’s “secret assessment,” came one day after Hillary Clinton, in her first speech since the election, decried th.... It was not about “politics or partisanship,” the losing candidate said, but voters have good grounds to believe it is about politics and partisanship.

Recall Clinton’s claim, in the second presidential debate, “We have never in the history of our country been in a situation where an adversary, a foreign power, is working so hard to influence the outcome of the election.”  As is often the case, the former First Lady and Secretary of State was wrong about that.

Though it held no free and open elections of its own, Russia has often intervened in America, which does hold free and open elections, a hallmark of a democratic republic. It might surprise millenials to learn that Russia had its own political parties in America, and ran their own candidates. Russia wanted those candidates to win and the other candidates to lose. 

In 1948, Communist Russia, then under the mass murderer Josef Stalin, backed the Progressive Party. At the top of the ticket was Henry Wallace, a former vice-president and agriculture secretary for FDR. 

Communist Russia, part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, wanted Wallace to win. Russia wanted Democrat Harry Truman and Republican Thomas Dewey to lose. Truman prevailed over Dewey, and Russian-backed Wallace finished last, behind even the Dixiecrat Party of southern segregationist Strom Thurmond.

Millenials and even baby boomers may be unaware that the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was not like American political parties. The Communist Party was a wholly owned subsidiary of the USSR, a division of Soviet foreign policy. 

It was tough for the Party after the death of their hero Stalin and Khrushchev’s revelations of 1956. In 1964, however, the Communist Party backed Lyndon Johnson, claiming this was necessary to block anti-Communist hardliner Barry Goldwater. The Democrat Johnson prevailed over the Republican, a victory of sorts for the Communists.

In 1972, the CPUSA candidate for president was Party boss Gus Hall, with African-American running mate Jarvis Tyner on the bottom of the ticket for vice-president. The Russians wanted Hall and Tyner to win but Republican Richard Nixon carried 49 states, prevailing easily over Democrat George McGovern, who began his career in the 1948 Wallace campaign. 

In 1976 the Communist Party ran Hall and Tyner again. The Russians, a hostile foreign power, wanted Hall and Tyner to win but Democrat Jimmy Carter managed to squeak out a win over Republican Gerald Ford. During the campaign, the Republican Ford had proclaimed  “There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe and there never wi... perhaps the stupidest statement by any candidate in U.S. history. The Russians continued to dominate Eastern Europe and in 1980 the Communists’ big issue was new U.S. missile deployments, which the Soviets opposed. 

That year the running mate of the white Stalinist Hall was black Communist Party militant Angela Davis, a feminist professor arrested in 1970 for supplying guns for a bloody courthouse takeover. The Russians wanted Hall and Davis to win against the Republican Reagan, the Democrat Jimmy Carter, and the independent John Anderson. Reagan prevailed in a landslide, carrying 44 states. 

Communists Hall and Davis teamed up again in 1984. As in 1980, the USSR, a foreign adversary, wanted Hall and Davis to win but they lost to Ronald Reagan. Also in 1984, the nuclear freeze movement, backed by the USSR, played a role in the election of pro-freeze senatorial candidates John Kerry of Massachusetts, Tom Harkin of Iowa, and Paul Simon of Illinois, all Democrats.

Meanwhile, as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton gave Russia pretty much everything it wanted in the so-called Russian re-set, and Clinton Cash noted other favors. Hillary Clinton, like her former boss in the White House, did not exactly take a hard line against Putin’s advancement in Ukraine and threats to the Baltic States. 

As the record shows, foreign adversary Russia tends to back the losers in American elections. A month after her loss, Hillary Clinton decries an epidemic of fake news, claiming this charge has nothing to do with politics or partisanship. The next day comes the CIA charge that Russia aided Donald Trump. That claim is entirely understandable, completely predictable, and totally without significance, as big a whopper as Hillary Clinton’s notion about unprecedented election intervention. 

The CIA’s Russia allegation confirms that the outgoing president has commandeered the intelligence community, headed by the clueless James Clapper. In similar style, the current president has corrupted the IRS, the Justice Department, and even the FBI, whose director James Comey found no basis for charges against Hillary Clinton. As David Horowitz noted, this was the most breathtaking fix in American history

The CIA’s Russia caper is a major strike of a campaign to delegitimize president-elect Donald Trump. The campaign is certain to continue, with free ad copy from the old-line establishment media.

Additionally, the following The Post & Email articles revealed a declassified FBI report that exposed then Senator Obama’s ties to the 'Weather Underground', which was a 'radical Marxist terrorist organization founded by Bill Ayers.' These articles also revealed the objectives of the ‘Students for Democratic Society (SDS)’, as stated by Bernadine Dohrn (Bill Ayer’s wife) during a National Council meeting of SDS in December of 1968: “We are building a working class revolutionary movement to overthrow the capitalists, and the imperialist structure of the United States and the world.”  She stressed the importance of an international alliance with the “third word” in order to “smash American imperialism” and advocated the creation of an international revolutionary consciousness.  Suspiciously this information was also kept from the American public in the run up to the 2008 Presidential Election by the 'government controlled main stream media outlets' that are funded by 'anti-American George Soros', as a means of helping then Senator Obama get elected President.  I believe that these articles relate to and/or further support the disturbing information revealed in the above articles-You Decide:

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
