  1. I’m guessing those leaders will really tolerate the OWS types, homosexuals, blacks & browns when they are in control of the FUSA.

  2. Anyone who knows their Golitsyn, knows this is about 1/2 step prior to the End Game.

    • Mao Tse-Tungs 1st act, on taking power in 1949, was to kick all the Russians out of Sinkiang Province, all but annexed by Stalin during WW II. Golitsyn was dead wrong about the Sino-Soviet split and a whole lot else. During the mid-1970s, in connection with the Wilhelm II Diaries mentioned below, I did some mid-level cloak-and-dagger with a KGB Colonel in NY…one Manakov, who had introduced himself as a “sports columnist from Izvestiya” & wanted, among other things, an interview with Zbig Brzezinski, then at Columbia U. & short-listed to be Carter’s Nat Sec Advisor….we made a trade. These KGB people are not all that brilliant. A I had to do to get Manakov’s ID was take him out to dinner, get him drunk, and pop the question – “Anatoly, are You KGB”? ans: “Da, koneshno”. “Are you still an assassin?” “No, not any more”. Etc.

      • Uh – sorry. That’s exactly what Golitsyn said would happen. He also said we’d see their alliance rekindled, AFTER the “fall” of communism and the wall.

        For the love is everything under the sky, the guy wrote a textbook that has proved to be right more than 100 times. No wonder we’re fooked. Cognitive dissonance, as Bill would say…

  3. “Don’t miss any updates from Validimir Putin”. YeeeooowwwwZuh!

    • And who cares what the “Comintern” wants. Here’s what I want: Kaiser Wilhelm II’s personal diaries, c. 40-50 volumes which the Russians hijacked from Berlin and carted off to the Kremlin in ’45. And lost to the world ever since. Thanks to the link provided by CA, I sent Putin a (carefully worded) e-mail on this issue, and expect a quick and positive reaction. Or WW III.

      • Cool. That way, I can be “that guy” in another context as well. {eyeroll}

        BTW, what do you think is in the KWII diaries?

          Put in a good word for me.
          I too am very interested, there was some family history in Ost Preussen via KWII and VonPodowitz family. Summer retreat where my great grandmother worked.
          Kinda like Downton Abbey!!!!!

          How much history was written by KWII on just his family ties, German, English and Russian?
          I don’t think Stalin wanted them as much as someone else, any connections to the Bolsheviks were pretty thin or non existent.
          Somewhere in there were also entries about the politics and banking, which led to someone wanting those diaries locked away, and/or burned. Think of how much modern history was already being established 100 yrs ago. I’ll bet other family names from then appear in print today. It’s still a tight circle among the elites.

  4. Yes, I can think of about 7 countries that would like to keep KW’s diaries under permanent lock and key – for the reason CA cites and many others – including all the principals who spun the planet into WW I: France, Russia, Serbia, Germany, Austria, Britain, Italy. Here’s how I found out about them. This via John Wheeler-Bennett, a solid historian and, during the 1920’s-30’s also used as a diplomatic go-between by the Brits; during the dark days of August 1939 W-B visited the exiled Emperor at his estate in Doorn, Holland and had some interesting conversations with the man, which are described in W-B’s book, KNAVES, FOOLS, AND HEROES – IN EUROPE BETWEEN THE WARS (1972):

    ” What…particularly caught my attention was the fact that, in order to refresh his memory on a certain point,he would swing round to the cupboard on his left and unlock it. There, ranged in row after row of beautifully-bound red morocco volumes, each with its clasp and lock, were his diaries from I don’t know how long back. He selected the volume for 1914, unlocked it with a key from his watch chain, found the particular entry he wanted and thrust it under my nose. To my intense surprise it was written in English, though other pages were in German. I took personal note of this vital cache of history.” (p. 182)

    “…throughout the war I made it my personal war aim to liberate those beautiful red volumes in which so many historic secrets must be locked away. I even dreamed of it occasionally. As soon as it was practicable I returned to Doorn…the Ilsemanns took me all over the Schloss, reviving old memories. At last we came to the Tower Room, where Bruce (Lockhart) and I had spent so many sunlit hours with the Emperor….I sat in the saddle at his writing desk and reconnoitered the cupboard below the window. ‘That’s where the Emperor used to keep his diaries’, I said. ‘Have you the key?’ Ilsemann silently unlocked the cupboard. It was bare…my heart had been hammering against my ribs and now it stopped with a sickening thud. ‘Where are they’, I asked. ‘The Crown Prince took them to Berlin after the Kaiser’s death. They should be in Charlottenburg.’ This was a ray of hope, and I saw to it that my duties took me to Berlin as soon as possible….very soon after the German surrender, and there was much chaos. The Charlottenburg Schloss had been occupied and very obviously looted by the Russians. No sign of the Diaries. I utilized every kind of source and facility to trace them but without avail. This gold-mine escaped and is lost to history.” (p. 187)

    Three years after noting these passages, I found myself at Columbia U. in NYC, a grad student at the Russian Institute and working at a part-time job in the International Relations Library, collecting and filing unpublished conference papers – the sort of thing that sometimes shows up in academic journals a year or two later. Along the way I had taken a couple of seminar courses with Brzezinski, talked to him in his office a few times, exchanged occasional remarks in the hallway, elevator and so forth; better, his Polish sidekick – Seweryn Bialer – was my student advisor, and I took the trouble to cultivate Zbig’s Evil Secretary, one Sonya Sluzar. So one day Manakov walks into my downstairs office, requesting access to my files – no surprise, the stuff he checked out was all re South Asian and Middle Eastern topics – and the rest is pretty much as described above. I see now that I blew it. Instead of asking Manakov to look for the diaries (which I left undescribed – when he returned from a visit to Russia, he described them quite accurately) I should have gone for broke and told him to bring them to me. At any rate, I recently broached the topic to an on-line WW I forum of about 800 academics, and not one of them was even aware of the existence of the Diaries. So right now, among others, there’s a Dutch Prof with some Euro-Russian connections digging around and, who knows, maybe this e-mail I sent to Vlad will filter through to the Man himself. That ,might pry them loose. Or not.

      And would not the Hohenzollern’s have first rights to the diaries? In a court of law, they can prove right of ownership. They were after all, stolen from the royal family.

    How about sending “Dear President Putin” a request to help a besieged minority being scapegoated and oppressed in Lee Greenwoodistan, and that would be non-PC certified whites. Hell even in the glorious and worshipped by patriots the US .mil the neo-Kulaks can learn about “White Privilege.”

    I’m coming to think this anti-racism shtick is nothing but anti-white propaganda, but maybe that is just me a non-authoritarian.
