Finally, the Center for Security Policy has installed an embeddable audio file player on its website to present the Secure Freedom Radio podcasts. That means that now bloggers like me can share them with a much sexier look than just a web link. That’s great. I will continue to provide the links for each show just to make sure that you keep up with their great material. Now concerning this interview with Paul Kengor, a few thoughts. There was no ‘end’ to the Cold War as we have been told to believe. The Cold War continued without interruption to this day. Only, when the Soviet Union collapsed it shifted, transformed itself into a new thing, with the result that now we live in a much more dangerous world than we used to during the duration of the ‘official’ Cold War period. The Russians continued their operations while we were busy drinking champagne when the Berlin Wall came down. Nothing changed either in Cuba or North Korea. In other terms, while we were celebrating the supposed collapse of the communist ideology, the communists in flesh-and-blood continued to wage war against us and adapted their strategy and operations for the post-soviet era.
In those days, China was not really a threat. It was a poor country, without the means to do real damage. It was a communist regime without teeth. Now it has changed drastically. The country is rich and powerful militarily and technologically. Thanks to its entry in the World Trade Organization and to the massive transfer of wealth and technology made by our corrupt political elites (who have betrayed us big time), China has developed into a mastodon that may very well surpass the United States very soon. Just by looking at the behavior of western liberal politicians, some of them have already begun to behave as if China was now the number one superpower of the planet. In a past interview on the airwaves of Secure Freedom Radio (I can’t find the audio file for the moment, sorry), the perspicacious Kevin Freeman made a very relevant observation about China. He said that the chinese system was not really communist but rather fascist, instead. He is right. When you look at the way that everything in China has been consolidated to strengthen and promote the state, then what you have is a fascist system, similar to Nazi Germany or fascist Italy. The fact that the chinese state presents itself as a communist state serves mainly propaganda purposes. Of course, the political apparatus in China is communist, there is no doubt about that. But the Chinese are using the market economy to build and promote themselves in a way that the Soviets never did. That explains why western politicians are so fascinated by China. They can do business there, while saving their reputations. In effect, for a liberal politician, to do business in a totalitarian country is perfectly fine…as long as it is officially communist or Islamist and not fascist. The Chinese have succeeded to merge into one single system the most efficient aspects of both communism and fascism and that makes them a very dangerous force. They have more chances to become the next number one superpower than the Soviets or the Nazis never had, precisely because they have find a way to bring together the strongest qualities of both systems while reducing or eliminating their respective weaknesses. Also, another whole issue to talk about would be the involvement of eastern regimes like China or Russia in the support of radical Islam. It is something that many people suspect without necessarily having the evidence to back it up, but there are more and more signs that point in that direction. I will leave you listen to the show.

To begin with, let me say that President Trump knows that he has signed a very bad document with the last 1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill. He should never have signed it and he knows that. He regretted it as soon as he did. He is probably frustrated, angry, disappointed and saddened by that. However, time is running out and we don’t have time to indulge ourselves into emotional reactions while there is so much to do to save western civilization. We have to keep going and continue to fight back. That’s why, on this Easter weekend, I would like to talk strategy a little bit. Everybody knows that the United States, Canada and Mexico are in a process a renegotiating NAFTA. In this article, I will leave aside Mexico since I don’t know much about their situation, besides the fact that it is letting millions of migrants going through their territory to reach the United States without stopping them, which speaks by itself on their mentality and behavior. So I will focus on Canada and the U.S.
Like everybody else you have seen the kind of dirt, lies, hatred and propaganda that was thrown at Trump during the Presidential campaign and since the beginning of his presidency. Question: According to you, how much of that was coming in fact from Canada, from the political elites and their allies in the media and other institutions? There is no way to know but anybody can make an educated guess. It is possible that it was actually coming from Canada, at least in part, with of course the participation of the Democrat Party and their activists. The Liberal Party controls the legislatures in the Province of Quebec and in Ottawa, the national capital, and others throughout the country. And the fact that they are in power in a province or at the federal level gives them the ability to use state powers to do things.
Elections are coming fast. Elections in Quebec are scheduled to take place on October 1st 2018. Elections at the federal level are scheduled to take place on October 21st 2019. My fear is that if Liberals in those two legislatures are respectively re-elected, they would then use state powers to undermine President Trump and maybe even try to unseat him. They may have done that already before. That’s why I think that it would be extremely unwise for President Trump to sign a new NAFTA deal before these crucial elections are held. Why? Precisely because then the Liberals of Philippe Couillard in Quebec and those of Justin Trudeau in Ottawa would use the signing of the deal as a marketing tool to sell their re-election bids to the public. On the contrary, without a new deal to show to the electorate, they would inevitably look incompetent on matters related to the economy, which would render their re-elections difficult. I am sure that with the Coalition Avenir Québec or the Parti Québécois in power in the legislature of Quebec, and with the Conservative Party of Canada in power in the legislature of Ottawa, the United States would find much better partners to conclude a trade deal that would be beneficial for both countries. But not only that. The collaboration with the United States in terms of security, border security, immigration would be greatly improved.
In a civilized world, countries don’t get involved in elections of other countries. But that doesn’t mean that you should let your political enemies get away and do nothing. Trump has a chance to make sure that his political enemies in Canada don’t get a second mandate to continue their misdeeds. And by doing so, he would then give a hand to Canadian patriots who are in desperate need of help. If nationalist parties are elected in both Quebec’s and Ottawa’s legislatures, all conditions would then be reunited to have a brand new NAFTA deal to celebrate, somewhere maybe at the end of 2019 or at the beginning of 2020. That would fall perfectly, by the way, for Trump’s launching of his re-election campaign for the Presidential Elections, don’t you think?
The Trump Administration is getting ready to begin the construction of the wall between the United States and Mexico (some might say that a wall between the United States and Canada would be needed as well but that is a subject for another day…). Also, discussions are going on Capitol Hill about certain programs dealing with immigration and refugees such as DACA for example. In this context, I think it is important to have a complete view and understanding about the problem we are facing and the solutions necessary to solve it. There are four layers to the ‘wall’ the way I see it. First, President Trump wants to build a physical structure between the United States and Mexico, to prevent illegal immigration and the flow of drugs. Good. I support the idea. But we have to realize that the problem is more complex than that. The ‘wall’ as to be understood in a larger manner in order to be effective. The very perspicacious and astute Michael Cutler, a former INS agent, has brought to our attention over the years the question of the ports of entry into the United States. In effect, airports, seaports and border crossings are important vectors of illegal immigration and drug trafficking. So, secondly, unless these ports of entry are secured correctly as well in a way that is satisfactory, the wall will remain insufficient to really protect the country. Also non-physical elements such as programs like E-Verify and others can give a hand to secure the United States. Thirdly, the question of cybersecurity remains central in any security strategy. Since a cyber attack can happen anywhere anytime, the construction of a protective wall must be accompanied by a capable, strong, resilient and effective network of cybersecurity protections, methods and safety mesures in order to support the important investment that will be made in the south of the country. Everybody understands that if a strong border wall is built, invaders and criminals will simply look for weaker spots to attack the United States, physical or cyber.
And fourthly, the question of the virtual or psychological wall is important as well. I think it is the great Chinese military general Sun-Tzu that said that wars are won in the minds before being won on the battlefield. Enemies of the western world know that pretty well, I think. Ideologies have a strong impact on people and they pave the way very often for the quiet conquest of territories. Since a couple of years, we have seen the deployment of islamist militants to impose Shariah Law on our populations. Some have used guns to do it, others have used words. The bottom line is that the ideology of Shariah Supremacism has a strength and a power that is a threat to all western countries and nations. A national security strategy must include that in order to be effective and President Trump seems to be inclined to do just that. Also, ideologies are not the only things that fall under the category of the virtual or psychological. Language is a very potent tool of conquest too. Very often the conqueror will try to suppress the use of the language of the conquered, either at work or in the public space. The slow and progressive diminution of the language in use by a people brings with it the disappearance of the people itself speaking it. It is a very effective way to wipe out a whole nation without using guns or bombs.
Which brings me back to the physical wall…The wall between the United States and Mexico will stop the uncontrolled migration to the United States and Canada of people from around the world but especially from South America. In last years, listening to conservative media in the United States, I heard many times that South Americans, referred to currently as latinos, are creating problems in the many businesses where they work in the United States. We are getting reports that they refuse or can’t speak English there. From what I see here in Canada, it is the same thing. As soon as they reach a certain number of Spanish-speaking employees in one enterprise, they stop speaking English (or French in the Province of Quebec) to use Spanish instead. Some might say that in the era of diversity and multiculturalism it is not a problem. I think it is if we understand the real nature of warfare. The imposition of a language on a people brings about the conquest of this people. This problem has metastasized so much in the United States that certain elected officials have begun to talk openly about making English the official language in certain states of the Union if not in the entire country.
The Province of Quebec has been a precursor in these matters. In 1977, the National Assembly adopter Bill 101 to protect the status of the French language in Quebec and make it both the official language of the province itself and the language of the work place. At the time, it was made specifically to protect the population of Quebec from the imposition of English used by Anglo-Canadians or Americans to operate the conquest of the territory. As you can see, times are changing. Now all western nations see their territory being invaded by foreign and hostile populations, sometimes using violence but some other times using stealthy means such as religion or language. So I beg President Trump, in parallel with the construction of the physical wall, to order the preparation of a bill that would make English the official language of the United States. Our countries face an emergency and strong measures must be put in place to save all our nations with their culture, history and civilization. No need to say that it stands to reason that all nations of the western world should do the same and adopt such a law to protect the language of their national population.
To Make America Great Again starts with a strong wall with its four layers. If it works, the United States will have a very very bright future…in English!

Here is a great interview with Lt. General Jerry Boykin on Secure Freedom Radio, followed by a blog post by Dave Emory. I thought that both a conservative and a progressive point of view were needed in order to grasp the difficulty we are facing. While Jerry Boykin focuses on the need to continue the fight against regimes that threaten freedom, Dave Emory recalls us that the war against Nazism is not over. In effect, it appears that Germany, stealthily and slowly, is in the process of winning the war against the Anglo-American empire.
