Surprise surprise, surprise!
Really? America’s Enemies would do all they could to “elect” a doofus? or a stooge? Or an ally?
Or defeat an out right commie bitch? Oops… that one was a couple decades too late, and the left ignores history and reality because they think they can dictate their own.
Photos are fakes.
Do you have documentation for this assertion? Links, perhaps?
I don’t think so. Here is a link to the US State Department page that contains slightly more official photos from the same visit, in 1974.
Key word from Aleks, who knows his stuff: “INTERFERE”
prevent an activity from continuing or being carried out properly
Here’s our toolbox:
…impede, obstruct, stand in the way of, hinder, inhibit, restrict, constrain, hamper, handicap, cramp, check, block; disturb, disrupt, influence, impinge on, affect, confuse
BLOCK–By all means necessary…
The Atlantic link is, apparently, a “pay” link. At least, it won’t let me view without a sub. I really dislike Atlantic, so will never pay or sub them.

Something doesn’t seem right with the help pledge letter story,
First we are to believe that the Russians are so unaware as to accidentally leave a pill wrapper and the transcript of a secret and private conversation in the open for anyone to grab when everyone from all delegations would know that every move they made would be under scrutiny. I would have to believe this was a deliberate act.
Next, a member of Ford’s policy team wouldn’t pass on information of this type to the resident spook when even the brand of asswipe used by the Russians was under scrutiny. And then Kissinger’s amanuensis isn’t going to say something about what they “discovered”.
Then there’s issue with the provenance of the letter
from the article, loose quotes, in sequence –
“In August 1975 I was at Helsinki and collected this letter”
“We decided to not pass it on to anyone else”
“put it in my office files and forgot about it”
“When I left I donated them to the national archive”
“I found the document on the website of the Ford library”
where the implication is this document remained in the National Archive and/or Ford library – “buried forever in hundreds of thousands of pages of diplomatic and presidential records from that era”
Yet at some point the document was classified secret by Kissinger
Seems there is some more to the story than what we’re being told. Of course when is that not the case.
Oh well, what do I know I’m just a hick from the sticks
Ol Leonid was pretty stupid if he was backing Ford over Jimmy “The Best President The Soviet Union Ever Had” Carter.
Couldn’t agree more.
in fact either dupe – the demoncrat lib or the corporate republiscam – was fine with the Kremlin. It was, you will remember, Bush41 who attempted to salvage communist rule in Russia…and succeeded in saving the Chicoms.
The following several paragraphs are taken from the introduction to the
unofficial English translation of Solzhenitsyn’s last great work:
Solzhenitsyn spent roughly ten years toward the end of his life researching and writing a monumental and definitive work entitled 200 Years Together: A History of the Russians and the Jews. Published in the original Russian in 2002, the book was received with a firestorm of rage and denunciation from the literary and media world, from the Jews, and from almost the entire intelligentsia of the established order in the West. Even the Russian government, that had up until then officially revered Solzhenitsyn as the greatest Russian writer and intellectual of the last century, turned its back on him.
From that day to this, the official Russian attitude toward 200 Years Together has been a kind of chagrined mutter: “Well, yes, Solzhenitsyn was a giant in his time, but we all know the old man was getting a bit senile in his old age when he wrote all that anti-Semitic rubbish, eh what?” From being the spiritual father of the new Russia, Solzhenitsyn became the crazy old
uncle one had to shut up in his room in the attic lest he embarrass the family in front of guests. Especially Jewish guests.
Ever since its original publication in 2002, immense efforts have been made by theRussian authorities and also by the Western liberal democratic power structure to ignore 200 Years Together, to suppress it as much as possible, and above all to prevent and interdict the book’s translation into foreign languages, most especially into English, which has become essentially the worldwide language of our epoch, as Latin was in the time of the Roman empire and for many centuries afterward. The Russian authorities have to this date refused to allow any official English translation of the book to be published.
