Back on Oct 25, 2022 Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) celebrated the withdrawal by the Democratic congressional “progressive caucus” of their abortive letter (October 24) imploring the Biden administration to interact in major negotiations with Russia and Ukraine to perhaps end the bloody conflict in Eastern Europe that threatens swiftly to turn into a nuclear conflagration which could close daily life on earth as we know it.
Raskin is not just any common Democratic congressman he’s an important member of the specific Household commission which has been busily investigating that dire risk to “our democracy,” the January 6, 2021 “insurrection.” Yes, he’s a much Leftist and Jewish and his message is frequently just as frenzied and fanatical as that of any member of the Squad. But with a single significant variation: he’s hugely put and properly related, aspect of the Democrat institution, so when he speaks, he speaks with some authority for the bash and its leadership.
Immediately after praising his fellow Leftists for withdrawing their plea for negotiations to close a cruel and vicious conflict—oddly, is that not what Leftists usually declare they do, desire “peace” and an “end to violence”?—and jumping on the jingoist and warmongering bandwagon, a spiraling route which could well end in nuclear holocaust, Raskin uttered his most essential and revealing paragraph and the real motives the US is deeply concerned in a faraway conflict in Eastern Europe.
No matter if he recognized it or not, it summarizes the formal (if unspoken) American and NATO stance on the conflict, and extra, the true troubles included. Most absolutely everyone in positions of power and authority in Washington and Brussels understands them, but significantly also many typical People do not.
Listed here is Raskin stating why we need to be in Ukraine:
“Moscow proper now is a hub of corrupt tyranny, censorship, authoritarian repression, law enforcement violence, propaganda, governing administration lies and disinformation, and preparing for war crimes. It is a earth heart of antifeminist, antigay, anti-trans hatred, as perfectly as the homeland of alternative concept for export. In supporting Ukraine, we are opposing these fascist sights, and supporting the urgent ideas of democratic pluralism.”
Seem familiar? It really should, as it is the same litany of accusations we listen to constantly and hysterically spouted by most of our legacy media domestically to attack, impugn and terminate people who dilemma and problem the latest conquests of our “liberal democracy.” The language is almost identical, conserve for the place.
People “ultra MAGA” varieties have to be defeated, extinguished, regardless of whether in The usa or in Russia….
Raskin so reveals the template, a common template, which is employed each domestically right here in the US and also globally by NATO and the EU to justify its steps in Ukraine…and somewhere else.
And those actions parallel continuously the actions of formal American international coverage normally considering the fact that the end of Environment War II. Surely, we had to oppose the advance of Soviet Communism just after that war, and much of the justification for our overseas coverage considering that then was just that: we experienced to defeat the Soviets, we had to defend “liberty,” but, far more ominously, we experienced to “force” (in the text of Allan Bloom in his The Closing of the American Intellect) “liberal democracy” on all these recalcitrant nations about the world, no matter whether they wished it or not.
And so-identified as American “conservatives” went along, as the threat of Communism was a likely activity ender which we experienced to stop, at all charges. Still, in retrospect, it appears that each and every “crise de guerre,” every single crisis which enabled us to have interaction in what appeared “righteous” warfare at the time, turned out to be a wrong flag initiated by our govt, irrespective of whether the Gulf of Tonkin “incident” which propelled us into vicious on-the-ground participation in the Vietnam War the WMDs in Iraq which we solemnly certain the entire world “were there secretly hidden by the evil Saddam Hussein” (but which weren’t—a myth created by our zealous Neoconservative globalists) the Syrian “massacres and gasoline attacks,” purportedly engineered by President Bashar al-Assad (and his Russian allies), but in actuality more false flags staged by John McCain’s terrorist Islamist good friends and the evangelical need to change Afghanistan—a country with a thirteenth century Islamic culture—into a gleaming instance of “modern” American Kulchur, replete with feminism, LGBTQ “rights,” and all the other blessings that habitually movement from our imperial foreign coverage when we infect a specific country with our model of progress and liberal democracy.
Our involvement in Ukraine is the hottest chapter in this tragic procession of failed involvements engineered by all those who have dominated our international policy (and also mainly our domestic insurance policies) in their chiliastic motivation to set up what my late mentor, conservative Russell Kirk, termed a “Pax Americana,” a world-wide entity which bandies about excessively the language of “democracy” and “human rights,” as it proceeds progressively to restrict and conclude the actual liberties of the peoples it arrives in contact with…whether in this article in the US with the weaponization of the DOJ and its armed Stasi-fashion FBI, or in international locations all over the planet in which the international “democratic” (read through=tyrannical) boot of the US and its minions in NATO and the EU extinguish the heritage and standard liberties of the inhabitants regrettable adequate to be recipient of American largesse.
Early on I uncovered it interesting to see Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi joined at the hip with Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham on their shared eagerness to engage likely in nuclear war…over what? a faraway corner of Jap Europe? Yet, it makes excellent perception: as Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other leaders, each Democrat and Republican, have openly exclaimed: this is a war to wipe out a recalcitrant Russia and defenestrate its president Vladimir Putin, even if it can take the lifetime of every lousy Ukrainian to do it. It is open up-ended, with the only close in sight the destruction of the Russian point out and tradition.
It is boldest advocates say as much, as witness just one zealous Neocon composing lately at the “conservative” Liberty Fund’s “Law & Liberty” World wide web web page: Claremont Institute creator Paul Schwennesen, in a violent piece, properly tilted, “Will the ‘Ball of Liberty’ Roll into Russia?” (Oct0ber 26): Russia delenda est! (to paraphrase Cato the Elder’s pledge that Carthage experienced to be destroyed). The place of Russia, he states, will have to be defeated and broken up into lesser (and dependent) states.
It is aspect and parcel of the aim and aim to impose what is named “liberal democracy”–a New Environment Order–across the complete encounter of the world. It is a aim shared by the likes of Pelosi and Graham, an objective which unites them. It is a aim which is spouted approximately each individual early morning on “Fox & Friends” by the not-so-figured out strategist, retired Basic Jack Keane, who represents a group ominously titled the “Institute for the Study of War.” Guess who else principles the roost at the Institute? Bill Kristol, previous Democrat US Senator and avid warmonger Joe Liebermann, and previous General David Petraeus, Neocon “experts” who literally foam at the mouth at the prospect of 1 extra “little war” via which to impose American-fashion globalism on the relaxation of the environment.
But this time it is different.
A couple times prior to the Russian incursion into Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the American puppet in Kiev, Volodymyr Zelensky, had gone to a Munich security meeting and mentioned that Ukraine intended to re-purchase nuclear weapons. It was one of the variables which impelled President Putin, whose back again experienced been pushed up towards an immovable wall, to reluctantly act. Now the Russian govt has said that it has incontrovertible proof, proof which it is well prepared to share at the UN or any environment forum, that the US and its Ukrainian satrap in Kiev are setting up to use a low-yield nuclear bomb, a “dirty bomb,” in Ukraine as a justification to deliver in, formally not just on the sly, American ground troops (the US 101st Cavalry is now making ready at the border of Ukraine ready for the orders from Biden to go in).
Vladimir Putin has cried foul and denounced this probable action, warning of this newest probable American wrong flag “incident.” Devoid of even the slightest review of Russian evidence, the US Point out Department and our minions in Europe, have dismissed this significant accusation out of hand. But if the reinforced and replenished Russian army launches its very long-envisioned offensive this drop and the Ukrainians commence to retreat, it could nicely be us and our underlings in Europe who launch Entire world War III.
Russia has far a lot more nuclear warheads than the US if war on this kind of a scale erupted, it would signify the virtual conclude of civilization as we know it. Nonetheless, the plan wonks—the zealous anti-Russian Neoconservatives—in Washington look typically unconcerned (even though there is information that they are supplying antidotes to achievable radiation fallout in selected choose metropolitan regions).
People in electric power in Washington and Brussels are fairly eager to chance it all, because they—down deep—understand and share the total import of Jamie Raskin’s declaration. Among the all media personalities none among the the Leftist claque and only Tucker Carlson on the Ideal fully picked up on this. Past the extremely-billed ideological farrago of verbiage about “liberal democracy,” “human legal rights,” and “LGBTQ rights,” there is a far more profound issue, a more profound rationale, which instinctively numerous of the rabid and frenetic armchair warriors in DC comprehend, but which considerably as well handful of so-known as patriotic “conservatives” see.
Tucker asks: “What could quite possibly be the justification for” all the hyper-intense moves by the US and its minions which could properly stop in nuclear war?
“We’ve puzzled. Anyone who’s paying interest has experienced to have wondered that. Nicely, this week, Congressman Jamie Raskin of Maryland, of Bethesda, answered that concern. Russia is an orthodox Christian state with traditional social values and for that explanation, it must be ruined, no matter what the price to us. This is not a regular war. This is a jihad. Jamie Raskin claimed that out loud, but numerous in Washington agree with him in the two get-togethers. They would like to see Planet War Trans immediately….”
Which is it reread Raskin’s statement once more. At foundation it will come down to a major electricity, a “sign of contradiction,” refusing to go alongside with the demonic globalization and secularization of the entire world by all those who, consciously or not, are acting as progress units for the Antichrist. It is one matter when a small irritant—Hungary, let’s say—refuses to go alongside with the environment world-wide reset, but fairly one more when Russia does not. Appropriately, it ought to be crushed Ukraine and its suffering population are only a battered stepping-stone in that open up-finished course of action.
As Feodor Dostoevsky noticed frighteningly more than 1-hundred and fifty several years ago, that true war was unleashed by Caiaphas and his minions in Biblical Times, it is the age-old conflict concerning the forces of Evil and individuals of Superior.
Irish poet W. B. Yeats visualized it in all its horror in the smoldering ashes of Planet War I:
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon are not able to hear the falconer
Factors fall aside the centre can not hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the entire world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and almost everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned
The ideal deficiency all conviction, when the worst
Are full of passionate depth.
Definitely some revelation is at hand
Undoubtedly the 2nd Coming is at hand.
The Next Coming! Barely are those phrases out
When a huge image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a squander of desert sand
A condition with lion human body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sunshine,
Is relocating its gradual thighs, even though all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That 20 generations of stony slumber
Were being vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come spherical at last,
Slouches in the direction of Bethlehem to be born? –“The 2nd Coming” (1919)
There is a verse which has been chanted for a millennium in the historical Latin Night Place of work, Compline, which warns us: “Be sober and vigilant due to the fact your Adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, in search of whom he may possibly devour.” [I Peter 5:8]
That roaring and lurid Adversary bids effectively to sit in positions of authority and electricity about us, and its goal is to destroy the valuable legacy and inheritance confided to us two-thousand years ago. What is transpiring in Ukraine is one facet, the newest installment, in that conflict, but one which may perhaps nicely deliver on the Eschaton.
