Bolshevism and Zionism
Are Ideologically Indistinguishable (part 2)
by Jonas E. Alexis – (Veteranstoday – 28/7/2013)
As we saw in the previous article, Bolshevism was indeed responsible for millions upon millions of deaths around the globe. It spread through Asia and subtly and indirectly in America through the work of Jewish revolutionaries like Alexandra Kollontai and Louis Wirth.
Some commentators have objected to the idea that Bolshevism has taken a different form and been reincarnated in Zionism, which I call neo-Bolshevism. Yet the evidence clearly indicates that this is the case.
Keep in mind that the end result of Bolshevism is death by the millions, and the neo-Bolshevik movement is leading toward that goal. We will explore the formation of Israel in more details later this fall, but let us clearly take seriously what Israeli General Yitzak Pundak has said.
“In an interview on IDF Radio, Pundak confirmed that forces under his command razed Arab villages in 1948. ‘My conscience is at ease with that, because if we hadn’t done so, then there would be no state by now. There would be a million more Arabs,’ he said.”
Once again we will not drill on this point at this present time.
Kollontai was appointed by Lenin and Wirth was a great admirer of Stalin. Wirth also ended up destroying the ethnic neighborhoods in major cities in America, and we will come back to this issue in the fall. Kollontai, under the leadership of Lenin, would work tirelessly to overthrow the Czar in Russia.
When Kollontai came to America, she quickly found out that the American people were not really interested in revolutionary activity, and Bolshevism, of course, had already carried a bad name in the Soviet Union. Kollontai, therefore, had to forge or join “feminism,” a revolutionary activity which was still at its infancy in America. Merriam Webster defines feminism as “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.”
As we shall see in the future, this definition is very deceptive, for no serious thinker has ever denied women equal opportunity. But since Jewish revolutionary movements cannot work without deceptions, Jewish revolutionaries had to forge “feminism,” and that eventually and for the most part led to the demise of the family in America. Kollontai herself would refer to her own marriage life as “a cage” which blocked her from reaching her subversive goal. As she put it,
“I still loved my husband, but the happy life of a housewife and spouse became for me a ‘cage.’ More and more my sympathies, my interests turned to the revolutionary working class of Russia. I read voraciously. I zealously studied all social questions, attended lectures, and worked in semi-legal societies for the enlightenment of the people. There were the years of the flowering of Marxism in Russia (1893/96).”
Kollontai also said, “I hate marriage. It is an idiotic, meaningless life.” Since marriage was no longer an option, Kollontai plunged into sexual liberation, which in the end made her miserable. Moreover, if Kollontai hates marriage, it was inevitable, then, that Kollontai would later seek to destroy the family by revolutionary means.
“Rebellion flared in me a new,” she said. “I had to go away, I had to break with the man of my choice, otherwise I would have exposed myself to the danger of losing myself…”
But proposing this new and radical life meant that Kollontai had to live in contradiction. In her subterranean soul, Kollontai was still longing to be understood by men. She said, “The longing to be understood by a man down to the deepest, most secret recesses of one’s soul, to be recognized by him as a striving human being, repeatedly decided matters.”
After years of preaching feminism and related ideas in major institutions, and after teaching our young students intellectually stimulating courses like “Gaga for Gaga: Sex, Gender, and Identity” (University of Virginia), “Lady Gaga and the Sociology of Fame” (The University of South Carolina), “The Science of Superheros” (UC Irvine), “Interrogating Gender: Centuries of Dramatic Cross-Dressing” (Swarthmore), “The Textual Appeal of Tupac Shakur” (University of Washington), the feminist movement, which began as a largely Jewish movement in the twentieth century, has actually taken a life of its own and has eventually killed some of its brightest children. Consider this:
“Magdalena Hinojosa, a striking-looking single woman, is a senior associate vice-president at the University of Texas. She’s learned that her job makes men uneasy. So when they ask her what she does, she simply tells them she works at the university, in the admissions office. ‘You have to hide who you are, at the beginning, until that person is comfortable with you,’ she says.
“Liza Mundy, author of the just-published book , met Ms. Hinojosa and a lot of other women like her. There’s Sami, the software engineer who tells men she’s a music teacher. There’s the young lawyer and her colleagues who tell men they work as hairstylists when they go out on the town. They have a lot more fun that way…
“Has women’s success come at the expense of men? I’m not about to argue that. Society is better off because women have far more opportunity and can make more contributions to the world. Millions of men are proud of their accomplished wives, and proud to be devoted fathers.
“Gender roles are far more flexible than we ever thought, and people are capable of creative arrangements that benefit everyone. But the world has shifted beneath our feet, in ways we don’t yet fully understand. It’s going to take some time to work things out. Meantime, women such as Magdalena Hinojosa still find it hard to get a date”
Neo-Bolshevism and the NSA
Bolshevism did not have the technological advantage to spy upon virtually everyone around the globe. Zionism, Bolshevism’s ideological grandchild, has seized upon the latest technology to once again continue the work that its ideological grandparent has started more than fifty years ago.
This Zionist enterprise has certainly sent shockwaves across the land and even the world, and although almost all politicians around the world has unanimously condemned the NSA’s spying programs, everyone is scared to death to rise up and break the Zionist matrix. The price is simply too high. In 1975, when the NSA was in its infancy, and when its covert operation was small, Senator Frank Church made a profound statement that turned out to be true. He said:
“If this government ever became a tyranny, if a dictator ever took charge in this country, the technological capacity that the intelligence community has given the government could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back, because the most careful effort to combine together in resistance to the government, no matter how privately it was done, is within the reach of the government to know. Such is the capability of this technology….
“I don’t want to see this country ever go across the bridge. I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return.”
More recently, President Joachim Gauck of Germany said that Edward Snowden is a freedom fighter, but Gauck has declared that Germany will not shelter Snowden, which obviously is an indication that Gauck is a political coward.
Gauck also insinuated that the NSA’s spying program is the antithesis of freedom and basic human rights, but Gauck is not prepared to fight against those who want to suppress freedom and human rights.
Other countries such as China, Belgium, Canada, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, have all condemned the NSA’s covert activity, but not a single country wanted to challenge the powers that be. In other words, you cannot defy the Zionist matrix without being called an anti-Semite or something equally worse.
Snowden of course is not the first whistleblower in history. But he is the first person to have the courage to leave his home, his lavish career and decent family, and even his precious life, in order to expose the neo-Bolshevik movement.
About two weeks ago, when asked about the detrimental consequences that his revelation may bring upon his life, Snowden responded, “I have no regrets.”
Snowden, in a letter to human rights groups, suggested that the NSA’s illegal activities compelled him to expose them. He wrote:
“Hello. My name is Ed Snowden. A little over one month ago, I had family, a home in paradise, and I lived in great comfort. I also had the capability without any warrant to search for, seize, and read your communications. Anyone’s communications at any time. That is the power to change people’s fates. “It is also a serious violation of the law. The 4th and 5th Amendments to the Constitution of my country, Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and numerous statutes and treaties forbid such systems of massive, pervasive surveillance. “While the US Constitution marks these programs as illegal, my government argues that secret court rulings, which the world is not permitted to see, somehow legitimize an illegal affair. These rulings simply corrupt the most basic notion of justice – that it must be seen to be done. The immoral cannot be made moral through the use of secret law. “I believe in the principle declared at Nuremberg in 1945: ‘Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience. Therefore individual citizens have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occurring.’ “Accordingly, I did what I believed right and began a campaign to correct this wrongdoing. I did not seek to enrich myself. I did not seek to sell US secrets. I did not partner with any foreign government to guarantee my safety. Instead, I took what I knew to the public, so what affects all of us can be discussed by all of us in the light of day, and I asked the world for justice. “That moral decision to tell the public about spying that affects all of us has been costly, but it was the right thing to do and I have no regrets. “Since that time, the government and intelligence services of the United States of America have attempted to make an example of me, a warning to all others who might speak out as I have.
“I have been made stateless and hounded for my act of political expression. The United States Government has placed me on no-fly lists. It demanded Hong Kong return me outside of the framework of its laws, in direct violation of the principle of non-refoulement – the Law of Nations. “It has threatened with sanctions countries who would stand up for my human rights and the UN asylum system. It has even taken the unprecedented step of ordering military allies to ground a Latin American president’s plane in search for a political refugee. “These dangerous escalations represent a threat not just to the dignity of Latin America, but to the basic rights shared by every person, every nation, to live free from persecution, and to seek and enjoy asylum…
“If you have any questions, I will answer what I can.”
Snowden’s deepest fear is not that he could be assassinated at any time. His fear goest much deeper. He said:
“The greatest fear that I have regarding the outcome for America of these disclosures is that nothing will change. People will see in the media all of these disclosures. They’ll know the lengths that the government is going to grant themselves powers unilaterally to create greater control over American society and global society.
“But they won’t be willing to take the risks necessary to stand up and fight to change things to force their representatives to actually take a stand in their interests.”
Snowden vs. Neo-Bolshevik Shills
Michelle Bachman, in response to the NSA revelation, declared, “The only people who have benefited from the revelation of classified information … the only result is that those who are engaged in Islamic jihad will have been benefited. Those that we seek to protect have not.”
In other words, Bachman is implicitly saying that people like Sarah Palin and Bill O’Reilly are engaged in Islamic jihadists—and they have benefitted from Snowden’s revelation! As we saw in a previous article, Palin even used the word “Orwellian” to describe the current state of America. I’ll let Bachman quarrel with people in her own camp.
Moreover, Bachman should quarrel with former GOP Senator Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire as well, who sent a letter to Snowden saying,
“Mr. Snowden, “Provided you have not leaked information that would put in harms way any intelligence agent, I believe you have done the right thing in exposing what I regard as massive violation of the United States Constitution. “Having served in the United States Senate for twelve years as a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, the Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee, I think I have a good grounding to reach my conclusion. “I wish you well in your efforts to secure asylum and encourage you to persevere. Kindly acknowledge this message, so that I will know it reached you.” Snowden wrote back to the Senator saying, “Mr. Humphrey, “Thank you for your words of support. I only wish more of our lawmakers shared your principles – the actions I’ve taken would not have been necessary. “The media has distorted my actions and intentions to distract from the substance of Constitutional violations and instead focus on personalities. It seems they believe every modern narrative requires a bad guy. Perhaps it does. Perhaps, in such times, loving one’s country means being hated by its government. “If history proves that be so, I will not shy from that hatred. I will not hesitate to wear those charges of villainy for the rest of my life as a civic duty, allowing those governing few who dared not do so themselves to use me as an excuse to right these wrongs. “My intention, which I outlined when this began, is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them. I remain committed to that. Though reporters and officials may never believe it, I have not provided any information that would harm our people – agent or not – and I have no intention to do so. “Further, no intelligence service – not even our own – has the capacity to compromise the secrets I continue to protect. While it has not been reported in the media, one of my specializations was to teach our people at DIA how to keep such information from being compromised even in the highest threat counter-intelligence environments (i.e. China). “You may rest easy knowing I cannot be coerced into revealing that information, even under torture. “With my thanks for your service to the nation we both love.” Former NSA senior executive Thomas Drake also supported Snowden, declaring that a large part of the government has progressively “become a criminal enterprise,” and Snowden had no other choice but “to escape the United States of America.” “Drake contacted a Baltimore Sun reporter in 2005 about wasteful NSA programs, including the Trailblazer Project, which aspired to snag vast quantities of Internet data, but instead reportedly cost taxpayers $1.2 billion before being cancelled.”
In a nutshell, Bachman knows better. We all know that both the Republican and Democratic parties are in the blessed hands of the neo-Bolsheviks (Zionists and neoconservatives). As Glenn Greenwald rightly puts it:
“One of the worst myths Democratic partisans love to tell themselves – and everyone else – is that the GOP refuses to support President Obama no matter what he does. Like its close cousin – the massively deceitful inside-DC grievance that the two parties refuse to cooperate on anything – it’s hard to overstate how false this Democratic myth is.
“When it comes to foreign policy, war, assassinations, drones, surveillance, secrecy, and civil liberties, President Obama’s most stalwart, enthusiastic defenders are often found among the most radical precincts of the Republican Party.
“The rabidly pro-war and anti-Muslim GOP former Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Peter King, has repeatedly lavished Obama with all sorts of praise and support for his policies in those areas. The Obama White House frequently needs, and receives, large amounts of GOP Congressional support to have its measures enacted or bills its dislikes defeated.
“The Obama DOJ often prevails before the US supreme Court solely because the Roberts/Scalia/Thomas faction adopts its view while the Ginsburg/Sotomayor/Breyer faction rejects it (as happened in February when the Court, by a 5-4 ruling, dismissed a lawsuit brought by Amnesty and the ACLU which argued that the NSA’s domestic warrantless eavesdropping activities violate the Fourth Amendment”
Snowden, the neo-Bolsheviks, and Terrorism
U.S. lawmakers have already declared that sanctions will be placed upon Russia “or any other country that offers asylum to former spy agency contractor Edward Snowden. The 30-member Senate Appropriations Committee adopted by consensus an amendment to a spending bill that would direct Secretary of State John Kerry to meet with congressional committees to come up with sanctions against any country that takes Snowden in.”
Snowden’s fear came to fruition when the House of Representatives voted for the NSA’s ability to continue spying on Americans. “Opposition to government surveillance has created an unlikely alliance of libertarian Republicans and some Democrats in Congress, The House vote split the parties, with 94 Republicans in favor and 134 against, while 111 Democrats supported the amendment and 83 opposed it.”
Scientist David Brin declares that adapt to the new system “with resilience, no panic.” Neo-Bolshevik/neoconservative Jonathan S. Tobin of Commentary responded right after the event,
“Had an amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations Act that would have halted the National Security Agency’s collection of metadata of phone calls passed last night in the House of Representatives, it would have been a major blow to efforts to defend the country against Islamist terrorists.”
Max Boot of the same magazine propounded similar ideas.But who are those Islamist terrorists? The American people? the Syrian rebels? Al-Nusra Front? The Mujahadeen? Neo-Bolsheviks like Tobin and Boot do not care to give us a list of those terrorists because it is a fiction of their imagination.
In a nutshell, the Obama administration will continue to use billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to fund an Israeli-run program in order to spy on virtually every American.
In other words, you work very hard to earn some money and pay your taxes, but the government uses your taxes to send money to Israel. The Israelis return the favor by spying on you. They want to make sure that you have not said anything that does not fit the neo-Bolshevik ideology. There is even more bad news:
“The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge users’ stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed.
“If the government is able to determine a person’s password, which is typically stored in encrypted form, the credential could be used to log in to an account to peruse confidential correspondence or even impersonate the user. Obtaining it also would aid in deciphering encrypted devices in situations where passwords are reused.
“Some of the government orders demand not only a user’s password but also the encryption algorithm and the so-called salt, according to a person familiar with the requests. A salt is a random string of letters or numbers used to make it more difficult to reverse the encryption process and determine the original password. Other orders demand the secret question codes often associated with user accounts…
“Large Internet companies have resisted the government’s requests by arguing that ‘you don’t have the right to operate the account as a person’ according to a person familiar with the issue. ‘I don’t know what happens when the government goes to smaller providers and demands user passwords,’ the person said.”
About four months ago, the Daily Mail gave us another grip picture of what the future holds for decent Americans. In an article entitled “U.S. Employees Set to Be Forced to Give Bosses their Facebook PASSWORDS,” we read:
“A last minute alteration to the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that would have prevented employers demanding that prospective employees disclose social media passwords as a condition of employment was voted down in the house of representatives. The proposal, put forward by Democrat Ed Perlmutter was defeated by a 224-189 majority…
“Handing over passwords could legally be a condition of acquiring or keeping a job, said WebProNews….Facebook initially came out in support of CISPA, but its name has since disappeared from a list of firms fully supporting the bill this time around…But other big name companies including IBM, Intel, McAfee and Time Warner Cable are in favour of CISPA.”
Google in particular has been involved in this business for a long time. For example, in 2010, the Daily Mail reported, “Google was accused of spying on households…after it admitted secretly copying passwords and private emails from home computers.
“The internet search giant was forced to confess it had downloaded personal data during its controversial Street View project, when it photographed virtually every street in Britain. In an astonishing invasion of privacy, it admitted entire emails, web pages and even passwords were ‘mistakenly collected’ by antennae on its high-tech Street View cars.”
The people who are largely behind this movement are again NSA officials, and NSA officials largely take their orders from the Israelis and the neo-Bolsheviks. How else would they support the NSA’s covert activity?
Who Killed the U.S. Economy?
While the United States has been spending billions upon billions of dollars spying on Americans for the Israelis, and while it has been sending billions upon billions of dollars to Israel since the Reagan administration and beyond, Matthew Vadum of FrontPage declared,
“As America continues sliding into the abyss, Obama talked about what he wanted to talk about, not about what an abject, irredeemable failure he has been on the economy.”
As a neo-Bolshevik, Vadum could never bring himself to the fact that if Obama stops the perpetual wars and the NSA program and stops sending at least three billion dollars to Israel every year, the U.S. economy would get a jumpstart. Obama has recently declared that
“If we don’t do anything” about the economy and the income gap, “then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise. That’s not a future that we should accept.”
So why doesn’t Mr. President get serious and start rethinking about sending billions of dollars to a neo-Bolshevik state in the Middle East?
President Obama is right on one thing: decent Americans should never accept such a dark and nihilistic future. The vast majority of Americans know that there is a problem, but many do not know that the problem largely stems from neo-Bolshevism/Zionism. Moreover, this neo-Bolshevik ideology has subtly infected Christian Zionism like a venereal disease. (We will postpone our analysis of Christian Zionism for late August.)
U.S. Officials (Neo-Bolshevik Shills) Are Shaking Hands with Terrorists
Recently, “U.S. officials meet weekly in Turkey with Syrian opposition leaders to work out how best to keep supply lines open to rebel fighters and war-ravaged towns and districts.”
A U.S. State Department official said,
“I sign the paperwork, and shake the hands of the FSA (Free Syrian Army) official. I wish them well and walk away.”
How would you like to know that U.S. officials are shaking hands with terrorists and wish them well? How would you like to know that the American taxpayers put our politicians in office to play dice with jihadists? And how would you like to know that the Syrian jihadists have given our elected officials orders?
Ahmad Al-Jarba, the leader of the group, told Secretary of State John Kerry at a meeting last Thursday that Americans needs “to push the international community to demand a political transition.” After he met with the jihadist leader, Kerry declared that the interaction “was very, very constructive.”
Suppose that Jonas E. Alexis met with Al-Qaeda in South Korea and declared that he had a “constructive” dialogue with him. Instantly you should rightly say that Alexis needs to be arrested for associating with a terrorist.
Yet in a neo-Bolshevik/Zionist world, Kerry can get away with praising terrorists. The U.S. can even send weapons to pro-Assad militias and Jihadists at the same time, but nothing will happen because the American people are sleeping.
And how does Al-Jarba respond to the charge that the Syrian rebel is a terrorist cell? “We absolutely condemn all terrorism and all attempts to turn Syria into what it is not, a monotheistic or totalitarian state,” he declared. “But we need American direct support to save democracy in Syria and to lead the world to force Assad at last to stand down.”
Al-Jarba wants America to know that the Syrian rebels/terrorists condemn all terrorism! Does Al-Jarba want us to believe that Al-Nusra Front is just a harmless group that fights for freedom and nothing else? We all know by now that the group is an Al-Qaeda associate.
The situation got even worse by the December 2012 when the Syrian rebels tried to storm two predominantly Christian towns and tell the communities to either rise against Assad’s forces or face attack. And by the end of the same month, it was reported that the rebels were beheading Christians and feeding them to dogs.
In the same month, the New York Times declared that Al Qaeda and other Jihadists had “an explicit stamp of approval” from the Syrian rebel. December 2012 seemed to have been a terrible month for the so-called war on terror proponents, since it was proved that Al Qaeda terrorists were indeed the main force behind the Syrian rebels. Moreover, it was estimated that almost 1 in 10 Syrian rebels were terrorists by the State Department itself!
During the same month, it was widely reported that the Obama administration continued to secretly support the Syrian rebels from Qatar. During the same month, U.S. troops were around the Turkey’s Syrian border. It was reported that Qatar has given the rebels/terrorists at least $3 billion.
At the same time, the United States was saying that major factions in the Syrian Rebels were terrorists because they were jihadists beheading prisoners.
It was reported that there were between 1,000 to 3,000 jihadists among the Syrian rebels. The United States knew this for months. For example, the al-Nusra Front was known for its terrorist acts by the summer of 2012, but the U.S. still did not get that memo. After they have committed a terrorist acts in January of this year, the group declared that they want “to give the tyrannical regime [Assad] a taste of violence.”
At the beginning of December 2012, the rebels smashed a school in Syria which took the lives of 28 children.
So Al-Jarba is dead wrong—on purpose. The rebels/terrorists performed public executions of prisoners, and torturing prisoners on a massive scale is one of their main goals. Even cannibalism is not exempt from their ideological goal. At least one rebel cut the heart out of one dead body and took a bite. More recently, the rebels executed 50 Syrian soldiers. Yet this has never given the neo-Bolshevik/Zionist regime both in Israel and America a second thought. They want to shake hands with those terrorists and support them.
“The United States has committed $250 million in non-lethal aid to Syria in addition to the $815 million in humanitarian assistance in support of the rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.”
The unnamed U.S. official we met earlier continued to say,
“We are just now starting to send large equipment over the border for local councils and cities in liberated areas…If we are providing small amounts of cash to a local council to pay salaries we insist on signatures and photographs. One of the ways to minimize the risk is we keep the amounts of cash small and would pay something like a stipend rather than a salary.”
The Christian Science Monitor has recently declared that representatives of the Syrian rebels/terrorists will meet with John Kerry in New York. Kerry carries good news for them: “Secretary of State John Kerry will be able to tell representatives of the Syrian opposition he meets with in New York Thursday that promised American arms should be reaching their fighters soon.”
Who’s paying the bill? Certainly not those elected officials or Obama. It is the average American. Keep in mind that the average college graduate will pay at least $30,000 for a bachelor’s degree in 2013.
In other words, America has to give her last drop of blood for the neo-Bolshevik ideology and for the state of Israel and for terrorist groups like the Syrian rebels. While we give Israel at least $3 billion every year, Netanyahu can spend “$127,000 in public funds for a special sleeping cabin on a recent five-hour flight to London,” and this is just what we know about.
What is actually happening here is that America is fighting Israel’s battle with terrorist groups, and America will continue to pay a huge price for this. Retired Marine Corps General James Mattis has recently declared that America has already paid a huge price for backing Israel. Mattis said,
“I paid a military security price every day as the commander of CentCom because the Americans were seen as biased in support of Israel and that moderates all the moderate Arabs who want to be with us, because they can’t come out publicly in support of people who don’t show respect for the Arab Palestinians.”
In a nutshell, Bolshevism and neo-Bolshevism have never been good for the world. Everyone should resist this, and the best way to start repudiating this Mephistophelian madness is through a personal no-participation with lies. Solzhenitsyn puts it best:
“And therein we find, neglected by us, the simplest, the most accessible key to our liberation: a personal no-participation in lies! Even if all is covered by lies, even if all is under their rule, let us resist in the smallest way: Let their rule hold not through me!”
