The Contemplative Observer

It’s happening. Right before our very eyes. The final chapter of the World Revolution, by communists, referred to as “World October.” is upon us!

As the countries of the West are still struggling to contain the Chinese-orchestrated pandemic and are desperately trying to get their grounded economies back running, the spiral of calculated escalation has moved on to the next stage: the instigation of chaos (possibly civil war) as a means to bring down the rule of law and government itself. These are not spontaneous protests against a “systemic racism” that doesn’t even exist (certainly not in the United States). This is a coordinated attack on nothing less than the constitutional foundations of the American Republic, carried out by Moscow/Beijing-directed communists (sailing under whatever banner) and reminiscent of every communist revolution in history (including the French Revolution, by the way).

With so much at stake – it’s now a matter of life or death! – one would expect the U.S. federal government (as well as state- and local governments) to act swiftly and rigorously to protect the country and its citizenry from otherwise certain destruction.

But not so. The President appears to be isolated in his wanting to stamp out the flames of insurrection with full force (and has meanwhile retracted). He is surrounded by appeasers and worse, while a new, revolutionary spirit has taken hold of the land, that goes way beyond mere appeasement (mind, appeasement to anarcho-communists): a spirit of flat-out submission. America appears to have lost, virtually overnight, its pride and self-esteem, and instead, kneels down before political radicals intent on creating a communist America. If one takes into account that quite a number of states and big cities are under the control of Democrat politicians who are in fact (like former President Obama) communists, it becomes clear why these people support the burning and looting and even call for defunding, if not abolishing, the police and opening the prisons: Both are more-than-obvious revolutionary demands designed to bring about a total collapse, a reign of terror (and/or civil war), and ultimately a military invasion by China and Russia.

We are now witnessing an America in its death-throes. The “land of the free and the home of the brave.” that has so greatly inspired (and attracted) so many people from all over the world, that great experiment of “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” that “shining city on a hill,” is in mortal danger (and with it, the whole of the free world, if not to say: Christian civilization altogether). Once a bright and hopeful place “from sea to shining sea,” it is today threatened, particularly from those same shores, by a generation that no longer identifies with America; that believes in the hoax of anthropogenic global warming; that believes in an inflated socialist nanny state; in “economic redistribution” (read: expropriation, and it’s coming); ultimately, in Marx and Engels and all the rest of them. With several generations in a row indoctrinated in schools and universities by Marxist infiltrators, there has occurred a silent, gradual, but nonetheless colossal, paradigm shift.

And there is no sufficient alarm, even now. At least, about whence the attack is coming. After all, an overwhelming majority (including, sadly, America’s political and economic elite) swallowed the bait of “collapsible communism” and of the “great investment prospects in the East” thirty years ago. America’s suspected “victory of the Cold War” was prematurely carved in stone; Gorbachev, and then Yeltsin, were hailed as honest democrats (rather than understood as unchanged communists). America and the West got quickly caught up in the overall lie of a “defunct USSR” and a “defunct communist bloc.” Nothing could have been further from the truth. The communist world even massively expanded its global influence post-1991, precisely because the West saw no communist threat anymore! (Enter: South Africa; Venezuela; Nicaragua; the Congo; Nepal – not to mention the EEC’s odd transformation into a much more centralized political union, only weeks after the “demise” of the Soviet Union). One who certainly must have been in the know was President Clinton, a man far less “moderate” than it seemed. Both his predecessor and his successor, the two Bushes, appeared to conveniently see and hear no evil. In fact, Bush the Younger even notoriously said at his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – less than three months prior to the Moscow-directed false-flag attack of 9/11 – that he had been able “to get a sense of his [i.e., Putin’s] soul.” Bush the Father, on Christmas Day 1991 when Gorbachev declared the Soviet Union dissolved, celebrated the event as “a victory for democracy and freedom”. How wrong he was! It’s been a continuous process of sinking ever deeper into an ocean of lies and deceit. And here we are: The communists, Barack Obama not the least among them, had been organizing and preparing for this present moment for a long time. Their vision of “fundamentally transforming the United States” (as expressed by Obama in a campaign speech shortly before the 2008 presidential election) has more than ever become a very real possibility.

Unmatched Soviet defector Anatoliy Golitsyn warned in his 1984 reference work, New Lies for Old:

The communist bloc, with its recent accretions in Africa and South-East Asia, is already strong. European-backed Soviet influence and American-backed Chinese influence could lead to new Third World acquisitions at an accelerating pace. Before long, the communist strategists might be persuaded that the balance had swung irreversibly in their favor. In that event, they might well decide on a Sino-Soviet “reconciliation.” The scissors strategy [i.e., the fake Sino-Soviet split that began after 1960] would give way to the strategy of “one clenched fist.”

At that point, the shift in the political and military balance would be plain for all to see. Convergence [of East and West] would not be between two equal parties but would be on terms dictated by the communist bloc. The argument for accommodation with the overwhelming strength of communism would be virtually unanswerable. Pressures would build up for changes in the American political and economic system on the lines indicated in Sakharov’s treatise. Traditional conservatives would be isolated and driven toward extremism. They might become the victims of a new McCarthyism of the left. The Soviet dissidents who are now extolled as heroes of the resistance to Soviet communism would play an active part in arguing for convergence. Their present supporters would be confronted with a choice of forsaking their idols or acknowledging the legitimacy of the new Soviet regime. […]

In the new worldwide communist federation the present different brands of communism would disappear, to be replaced by a uniform, rigorous brand of Leninism. The process would be painful. Concession made in the name of economic and political reform would be withdrawn. Religious and intellectual dissent would be suppressed. Nationalism and all other forms of genuine opposition would be crushed. Those who had taken advantage of détente to establish friendly Western contacts would be rebuked or persecuted like those Soviet officers who worked with the allies during the Second World War. In new communist states – for example, in France, Italy, and the Third World – the “alienated classes” would be reeducated. Show trials of “imperialist agents” would be staged. Actions would be taken against nationalist and social-democratic leaders, party activists, former civil servants, officers, and priests. The last vestiges of private enterprise and ownership would be obliterated. The nationalization of industry, finance, and agriculture would be completed. In fact, all the totalitarian features familiar from the early stages of the Soviet revolution and the postwar Stalinist years in Eastern Europe might be expected to reappear, especially in those countries newly won for communism. Unchallenged and unchallengeable, a true communist monolith would dominate the world.

Also in 1984, Yuri Bezmenov, another interesting Soviet defector, reminded America of nearing disaster:

The next stage [after years and decades of  (1) demoralization and  (2) destabilization], of course, is a crisis. It may take only up to six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis, you can see it in Central America now. – And after the crisis, with a violent change of power structure and economy, you have, so-called, the period of ‘normalization’; it may last indefinitely. ‘Normalization’ is a cynical expression borrowed from Soviet propaganda: when the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in ’68, Comrade Brezhnev said, ‘Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized.’ This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all these schmucks to bring the country to crisis, to promise people all kind of goodies and the paradise on earth, to destabilize your economy, to eliminate the principle of free-market competition, and to put a big-brother government in Washington, DC,  with benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise lots of things, never mind whether the promises are fulfilled or not; he will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of a new generation of Soviet assassins, never mind, he will create false illusions that the situation is under control. The situation is not under control. The situation is disgustingly out of control! Most of the American politicians, media, and educational systems are training another generation of people who think they are living in peacetime. False! The United States is in a state of war; undeclared, total war against the basic principles and the foundations of this system! And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov, of course. It’s the system; however ridiculous it may sound: the World Communist System, or the World Communist Conspiracy! Whether I scare some people or not, I don’t give a hoot; if you are not scared by now, nothing can scare you! – But, you don’t have to be paranoid about it. – What actually happens now that, unlike myself, you have literally several years to live on, unless the United States wakes up. The time bomb is ticking. With every second – tick, tick – the disaster is coming closer and closer. Unlike myself, you will have nowhere to defect to – unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is it; this is the last country of freedom and possibility.

J. R. Nyquist, who in this author’s opinion is America’s most profound political analyst today, wrote in his 1998 groundbreaking book, Origins of the Fourth World War:

During the 1940s Joseph A. Schumpeter characterized the typical American attitude toward Soviet Russia: “Let Russia swallow one or two more countries, what of it? Let her be well supplied with everything she needs and she will cease to frown. After twenty years the Russians will be just as democratic and pacific as are we – and think and feel just as do we. Besides, Stalin will be dead by then.”

Each decade, however, has found us rolled back by communist takeovers in places like Vietnam, Cambodia, Cuba, China, Angola, Ethiopia, Nicaragua, Tibet, Afghanistan, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and now, more recently, Zaire; and by the infallible progress of men like Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro, and – dare we say? – Nelson Mandela. Soviet socialism ebbs and flows unlike anything we’ve seen before. Take for example the year 1941, when Hitler decimated the Red Army. Yet the Red Army rose phoenix-like out of the ashes. One recalls Lenin’s political and military disasters, like the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk and the Soviet invasion of Poland. We remember Khrushchev’s harebrained scheming and his break with Maoist China. But each Soviet disaster is transformed, over time, into victory; e.g., the collapse of Brest-Litovsk, the communization of Poland, and finally, a new coziness with China. The Soviet talent for resurgence must be taken into account. To find resilience as great as this, there is only the example set by the Romans after Cannae. But is Russia, like Rome, destined for a world empire? We cannot be sure. All we know is that Russia, whatever comparisons we incline to, proves to be a special entity following a law of development all its own. Perhaps Schumpeter was on to something when he wrote: “The Russian century once started may run its course almost of itself.” Why? Because Russian foreign policy has purpose, energy, style, depth; while American foreign policy is rambling, sentimental, and shallow. This gives a tremendous advantage to Russia and very little to America. The American people want prosperity, not imperial burdens. At heart we are isolationists. Therefore, the most dangerous event of all is this recent and apparent collapse of the Soviet Empire. For should the Soviet Union, as the phoenix, once again rise out of the ashes, we shall be compelled to rise out of ashes of our own.

And what are the various analysts and commentators saying today, as the situation is ever more spiraling out of control?

J. R. Nyquist (To the Americans Who Are on Their Knees, June 4, 2020):

We are near the end of the Republic. A revolution has begun and no decisive counter-revolutionary actions have been ordered. Why has this happened? Because we have been psychologically and linguistically disarmed.

For example: — The oath of allegiance of federal officials is to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic; but if we refuse to acknowledge the existence of enemies, if we cannot name our enemies, no defense will be possible. And this is the one thing, above all, that has been forbidden: We are not allowed to name our enemies.

Trevor Loudon (Cities Burn, but None Dare Call It Communist Insurrection, June 6, 2020):

In the past few days, several cities have seen chaotic rioting. Cars and buildings have been torched, looting is rampant and even the Third Police Precinct in Minneapolis was burned as officers abandoned the building. More is to come.

The protests ostensibly began because of the death of George Floyd during an arrest. Systemic racism and police brutality, leftist pundits argue, is to blame.

Some leftists are claiming, as they did during the Occupy Wall Street movement, that the protests have been hijacked by a violent element intent on discrediting the movement.

Conservative commentators, on the other hand, speak of frustration and rage, of a reaction to the claustrophobia of weeks on end lockdown.

They all miss the mark.

The violence since the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis is a communist-inspired insurrection — nothing more, nothing less.

Cliff Kincaid (The Law and Order President Is Failing America, June 11, 2020):

Millions of people depending on Trump’s Twitter feed for the blunt truth are now getting a lot of empty threats.

As this column is being written, Trump has sent out another “Law and Order” Tweet demanding that the authorities in Washington State and the city of Seattle restore law and order. In defiance, they told him to return to his White House bunker. Trump looks weak.

Trump threatened to restore law and order through the Insurrection Act and when his own Secretary of Defense Mark Esper undercut him, he backed off. Who is in charge anyway? Now, Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark A. Milley has in effect denounced Trump for including him in that photo-op in front of the church. Why does Milley still have a job? This seems like a “Seven Days in May” scenario where the top brass revolt against their Commander-in-Chief.

In the movie, the president wins. In real life, who knows?

But you can also take it straight from the horse’s mouth:

What does this all leave us with? Communism is about to have its great and murderous day of harvest. Two things we should now focus on: On the spiritual level: repentance and prayer. On the practical level: preparation. The rest we have to leave up to our God and Lord, in Whose hands-only our entire fate rests (for better or worse). Psalm 34 may give us the strength and unwavering faith necessary for the days ahead:

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LordWhat man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
