"FOR LOVE OR MONEY"
How many of my readers have had a one-night stand? How much did you know about that person? He or she was good-looking, had a nice personality, made you laugh? You were lonely? Who was going to know? It was no one else's business, right? Just two people enjoying each other in complete privacy.
Remember the brouhaha over Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky? Adultery has become rather commonplace in our society (another consequence of cultural subversion), so many people said it was none of our business. Yet, in the military, adultery is a court-martial offense. Just ask General David Petraeus. In fact, until "Don't ask, Don't tell", homosexuality was grounds for immediate discharge. Why? Remnants of our Puritan days?
Ninety percent of those people recruited by the KGB are obtained through blackmail (from 36:55:00):
Ninety percent. An astonishing number. Hede Massing described how she would provide a sex partner for many of the people she recruited. How easily we allow our baser impulses to be manipulated, often with disastrous consequences.
This segment also mentions the use of journalists, and that brings up a problem I have with a certain "hostage" being "held" by the Islamic State. I find it impossible to believe that John Cantlie is actually a captive. I do not know if he was in the beginning (Islamists notoriously turn on those who "help" them), but he most certainly is not one now. The video he put together in Mosul looked like something a travel agency would put together. How many captors allow their victims to jump on a motorcycle and whirl through the streets? In fact, my suspicion was aroused by the video before that, where he sat behind a table and lectured the world for ten minutes on the Islamic State's behalf. I did not see a single twitch from him that indicated he was in any way under duress. Quite the opposite; he was very emphatic in his defense of the mujahideen. Things are not always what they seem.
At the end of the section, Hede Massing says something fascinating, but completely in line with what I have discussed previously from Yuri Bezmenov. She says the working class is almost impossible to recruit, that the best targets are the elite (Useful Idiots). These are the people who will go to an art gallery and spend hours staring at a portrait of an apple trying to understand the artist's "meaning" (maybe he just wanted to paint an apple?). These are the ones Bezmenov mocked in the interviews I have posted previously, the ones who think they are so highly intelligent when in fact those they are trying to impress think they are Useful Idiots.
"CUBAN CONNECTION" & "TERRORISM AT HOME"
My jaw dropped repeatedly over Cuba. I knew the basics about the Castros, and about the oppression in that country, and of course I knew about the Cuban Missile Crisis. The rest is simply astonishing (from 47:07:00):
The Cuban DGI (intelligence agency) fanning the flames of race riots in the '60's, in fact inciting violence as evidenced in "The Days of Rage"; funding and giving terrorism training both to Cuban "revolutionaries" and Americans who came to Cuba for that purpose; and, the Weather Underground (from 55:15:00):
Incredible. Absolutely unbelievable. Bill Ayers, one of Barack Obama's best friends. Now I understand why our "President" wants relations with Cuba so badly. Oh my God! The Soviet Union has been playing in our backyard in ways we never imagined.
So, these are the people Obama wants to allow into our country. The very people who fueled dissent and violence within our society will now walk around America, free to sow discontent and engage in terrorist activities at will. Is this the "Change" POTUS has been promising?
I had no idea of the importance of what happened in Grenada and Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Puerto Rico; nor the reason behind Vladimir Putin's current interest in Venezuela (other than being ideological bedfellows). Grenada is the epicenter of a major Middle Eastern trade route (from 1:04:37):
When I got to the part about Soviet fishing vessels I could not help but flash on Israel. All of the international pressure to open up the waters off the coast of Gaza for "fishing". I now see "fishing" through new eyes, and I understand far better why Israel has that blockade in place. Do not get me wrong; I realized it was for security (can you say "flotilla"?), but I had no idea of some of the subterfuge that can occur under the guise of "fishing".
Anyone professing to care about border security needs to watch this entire segment (from 1:13:16):
Who needs a cover to come into this country, spy on us, and subvert our society when we can just offer amnesty to anyone and everyone who manages to cross our border? If the Soviet Union had just waited a little while, they could have done their job far more easily under the Obama administration.
"PORTRAIT OF A SPY"
Self-explanatory (from 1:27:05):
"MOLES IN HIGH PLACES"
Here, several examples of moles in our nation's recent history are discussed, lending credence to the idea that Snowden was not just a "whistleblower" (from 1:37:26):
Of particular note is the map of Germany and the surrounding countries at the end of World War II. Because of its well-placed spy network, the Soviet Union was in a position to finish demolishing the country had the war not ended when it did. Also of great significance is how the Soviet Union, thanks to their spy running the Treasury Department, was able to bring Communism to China, as well as the incredible Congressional testimony as to just how deeply the Russian spy tentacles reached.
"SECRETS FOR SALE"
A look at the KGB in the world of academia (from 1:46:25):
However, the subterfuge surrounding the submersible technology is disturbing. It seems businesses will do just about anything to make a dollar, and will sell to anyone who will give them a dollar. So much for patriotism.
Sixty, to one hundred billion dollars, the United States had to spend for no other reason than to come up with a defense system that would counter what the Soviet Union had acquired from us through espionage. That is quite a price tag for not staying ahead of the enemy.
Of course most, if not all, of the technology described in this film is completely out-of-date, but the principles of how the Russians were able to acquire that technology is the reason for its inclusion in this article. Those principles are very much in practice to this day, with some modern-day improvements.
Yuri Bezmenov reminds us of the origins of the KGB's subversion tactics: Sun Tzu, who said it is better not to fight, but rather to subvert your enemy by pitting black against white, young against old, rich against poor, etc. (is any of this sounding familiar?). In this section, Soviet attempts to destroy NATO through disinformation are discussed. Specific reference is made to their planting of information that the United States was spying on its allies (does this sound familiar?), reminding me of Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the uproar that occurred specifically with Germany after WikiLeaks obtained Snowden's documents (from 1:55:48):
"Who's Who in CIA"? Do my readers recall the musical Station Chiefs in Pakistan that I discussed a few posts ago regarding bin Laden? Were those leaks, supposedly done by a reporter who was angry that his brother and son were killed in a drone strike, actually part of yet another KGB disinformation program?
And, Guyana? Really? Is there anything CIA does not get blamed for? Allegedly they created al-Qaeda, and the Taliban, and ISIS, and were behind 9/11 (with Mossad, of course); the list goes on endlessly. Can any of these stories be believed? I mean, any? Like the ones that sound halfway plausible? Or is it all one big spin put on by the masters of subversion? I think I will tread very carefully around such stories from now on.
Finally, since the word is bandied about and misused constantly (not just by the KGB but by those who hate America and/or Israel), what is Fascism? As Mussolini put it, "Everything in the State. Nothing outside the State. Nothing against the State", a definition that certainly does not apply to either the United States nor to Israel:
Subversion. Disinformation. Misinformation. Spies. Distrust. If my readers are anything like myself, they are now seeing the world completely differently than they did yesterday. As I stated in Part One, that is a good thing. If we are to save our Republic, we must first learn to recognize the enemy and think like the enemy. Only then can we hope to defeat the enemy.
