Cet excellent documentaire dresse le portrait d’ensemble des opérations d’influence et d’infiltration du KGB et autres services d’espionnage soviétiques dans l’hémisphère occidental. Bien que la Guerre Froide soit officiellement terminée, il est clair que diverses opérations d’espionnage et d’infiltration de notre hémisphère sont toujours en cours, parrainées par divers pays, régimes et intérêts qui nous sont hostiles, ce qui rend ce document toujours très pertinent. Certaines filières, comme la filière cubaine, sont regardées. Certaines techniques de persuasion ou de recrutement, comme le sabotage, l’assassinat, le blackmail et le pot-de-vin sont évoquées. Parmi les points d’intérêts, on apprend que les Weathermen se sont rendus vers 1970 à Cuba pour s’entraîner aux techniques terroristes, sous le couvert d’une organisation militante de gauche appelée la Brigade Venceremos. Les Cubains étaient perçus comme étant à la fine pointe des forces communistes internationales. En octobre 1969, on se souviendra que les « Jours de rage » ont fait des dégâts importants à Chicago. On se souviendra également que c’était l’époque où le FLQ était actif au Québec. Ainsi, vers 1h 03minutes, le témoignage d’un des participants du documentaire nous révèle qu’au printemps 1970, des membres des Weathermen se seraient rendus au Canada pour rencontrer des membres du FLQ afin de tisser des liens plus étroits et coordonner leurs opérations. Bill Ayers faisait parti de la délégation. Aussi, vers 2h00, la question de la désinformation et de faux rapports de renseignement est regardée. Ceci n’est pas sans rappeler les scandales de Wikileaks et des agissements d’Edward Snowden. En effet, dans ces deux cas, autant Julian Assange qu’Edward Snowden ont fourni des quantités phénoménales de documents et de supposés « rapports de renseignement », alors que le public n’a aucun moyen de savoir ou de vérifier s’il s’agit bel et bien de document authentiques. Également, il n’est pas sans intérêt d’entendre une des plus célèbres espionnes russes durant la Guerre Froide, Hede Massing, déclarer vers 29:00 minutes qu’elle a fini par comprendre qu’elle ne combattait pas du tout le fascisme. Elle était plutôt manipulée par les Russes… Un documentaire à ne pas manquer.
(06-08-2012) N.B.: Before I let you read the article, here are a couple of points that I posted on SpitfireList.com on May 20th 2012 as a response to some criticism about the article from the website host. These remarks should serve as caveat, precisions, to be able to put into context the core of the text. I admit that this article was a reckless attempt, not necessarily successful, to explain and put into context something rather difficult to conceptualize. In the end, I think Obama is a good man but he is surrended by people who are not and who are trying to seize the occasion to do harm. Here it is:
Thanks for these remarks. I will clarify a few points just to be sure we agree on my positions concerning Obama and the rest. Maybe the writing of my article could be improved to reflect that.
First, I have never said that OBAMA killed Breitbart or that he wanted to kill him. He nevertheless signed, if I am not mistaken, an Executive Order that legalizes targetted assassinations of American citizens. Somebody else could have done it. Maybe.
Second, I have never said that Obama was third position. It is rather the crowd surrounding him and with whom he evolved that gives me that impression. For me, the Chicago milieu is bad and breeds radicals. But the right is not any better, of course.
Third, I agree, the Weathermen were probably agent provocateurs.
Fourth, concerning Israel, religious Zionism is probably wrong as you say, but we must not forget that Israelis face annihilation not only since 1922 (that’s 1917 in fact- Ed), year of the Balfour Declaration, but since the beginnings of Christianity. John Loftus’s The Secret War Against the Jews remains, for me, the best tool to understand the situation. When the fate of the Jews is secured, the state of Israel is secured, we will have plenty of time to criticize Zionism and Netanyahu or any other politician in place. I don’t like Netanyahu courting right-wingers, but there is not much of a choice. Obama is not favorable toward Israel and the U.S. has only two parties…
Fifth, yes, Obama is very different from Bush. Idealy, if we could combine the best of the two in just one candidate, that would be great. But unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that it seems.
I kept it brief and I hope it clarifies things.
The recent death of Andrew Breitbart has opened a Pandora’s box. The controversy has raged over the fact that he was very vocal during the whole month of February about releasing, on March 1st, some tapes that would irremediably hurt Barack Obama and seriously undermine his chances to get re-elected. Apparently, the videos show Barack Obama during his college days with radicals. The fact that he died only hours before having the occasion to do so, has led many in political circles to ask themselves whether or not Breitbart could have been eliminated. The sudden heart attack that brought him down is seen by certain people as possibly only the official version of the story. Well, we may never know what really happened. However, this event has opened a rift, so to speak, in the political analysis spectrum, and now certain connections from the past emerge on the surface. A first tape has been released on March 7th. It shows Barack Obama during his college days at Harvard University endorsing and hugging Derrick Bell, a controversial professor who expressed radical leftist ideas about race. The hugging part of the video was censored at the time of the Presidential Election to avoid doing any damage to Obama’s campaign.
A thread is common and I want to present it to you. Kevin Coogan, a marvelous author, has written a book titled Dreamer of the Day: Francis Parker Yockey and the Postwar Fascist International. This book presents the political philosophy of Francis Parker Yockey, a post-war fascist political thinker. In a nutshell, Yockey wanted to breed a new kind of fascism where nazism/fascism, communism and Islam would merge, along with elements characteristic of Third World sensibilities, to create a new form of fascism that didn’t exist before WWII. Uniting the Far-Left and the Far-Right, with the Iran of the Ayatollahs and the Nation of Islam, was a priority and a goal in itself for him. Lire la suite
On Thursday July 28th, National Post‘s Jonathan Kay wrote an excellent article on the links between Anders Behring Breivik’s and Adolf Hitler’s intellectual patterns. I am particularly grateful that he took the time (thanks!) to read into the whole or at least some parts of Breivik’s manifesto. Having a day job and being interested and compelled into so many things at the same time for the elaboration of this blog, I don’t have time unfortunately to read 1,500 pages+ manifestos. I strongly rely on the research of others, journalists or researchers, to be able to blog and analyse situations and cases. I intervene at « level 2 » if you will, in the process toward truthful information. I don’t have the credentials to pretend that I am an investigative journalist nor that I have those to be considered a professional and acknowledged researcher. My background is made of research in religious studies and psychology, and attempts to established myself as professional writer in philosophy and other subjects.
These caveats being made, let’s get back to the article. Kay quotes or references several passages of Hitler’s Mein Kampf in which the nazi leader expresses psychopathological thoughts linking negative views on sexuality, biological illnesses, germ theory, moral decadence and racial theory on Jews and other groups. Kay compares these passages with some of Breivik’s manifesto, revealing some striking similarities: references to sexual decadence, sexually transmitted diseases, social reform needed, etc. The article continues the analysis and overall it does an excellent job at bringing up to the surface a very important element that 99,9% of the rest of the media managed to miss regarding this case, as it is almost always the case unfortunately with anything really important.
