The Chekist (Video)

Since the United States appears to be in the midst of a socialist-inspired insurrection, history may instruct on the human toll previous communist revolutions have wrought in terms of persecution, suffering, and death. For the past several decades such stories have been censored or stricken entirely from scholarly treatises, education and popular culture. As a result, the American public has little wherewithal to discern the communist revolutionaries’ methods for seizing power and ultimate goals, the foremost of which involves the elimination of anyone suspected of “counterrevolutionary” activities.

Under communism the state, its policies, police and military are elevated to “God-like” status, all countervailing ecclesiastical and political viewpoints are automatically considered thoughtcrimes that carry the death sentence. As a result in post-revolutionary Russia alone several million Christian men, women and children were mercilessly tortured, raped and murdered. The Chekist is an excellent starting point for understanding the barbaric and murderous end game of the Marxist-communist state.-Ed

The film The Chekist (1992), a Russian-French co-production, was directed by well known Russian director Alexander Rogozhkin and based on a short story by Vladimir Zazubrin. 

The film takes place during the Russian civil war, following the 1917 Russian Revolution. Andrey Srubov, a revolutionary from a Russian upper class family, heads a local “CheKa” (Lenin’s Soviet secret police) department in a Siberian town recently taken from the anti-communist White Army. Srubov, together with his colleague Isaac Katz and Ian Pepel (the latter based in part on Latvian CheKa leader Martin Latsis) sign the death warrants of countless people who’s main fault is belonging to the “enemy class” of the Soviet regime.

Former White officers, priests, “bourgeois” intellectuals, and anyone who stands in the way of suspicion are led into a cold rat infested cellar, forced to undress, and are shot without trial or even the pronouncement of sentence. Their bodies are carried out by truckloads every night, while their clothes are divided up by their executioners. Srubov, who’s own father was executed by his current cohort, Katz, finds ways of morally justifying the murders he is committing in the name of the ‘revolution’. 

This film, which is currently no longer in distribution, offers a gristly look at the realities of Lenin and Trotsky era Bolshevism, known as the “Red Terror”. In all fairness to history, the film spares the audience of the full extent of the horrors of the Cheka basement, but it gives enough of an idea. It also reveals the psyche and attitudes of the killers themselves, offering us a peak into their dark world. 

The film was based on the short story by Vladimir Zazubrin called Schepka (Wood Chip).

Zazubrin’s short story was released very briefly in a Soviet literary magazine in 1923, then was banned within a year’s time. Copies of the magazine were destroyed. Zazubrin himself ended up becoming a victim of the apparatus he wrote about during the purge of 1937. The story was only published again in 1989, during the Glasnost era.

MHB Report: The Unknown Whistleblower (Video)

Memory Hole Blog Report

Congress and major media rally around “whistleblowers” with certain political import. Yet real whistleblowers receive certain wrath for speaking out. Former Florida cop Mark Dougan, now exiled in Russia, claims to have explosive files linking pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to Prince Andrew. Fearing for his life, he claims to have these attached to a “dead man’s switch.”

Western Media to Push “False Flag Provocation, Staged Chlorine Gas Attack”

Russian News Outlets Claim White Helmets Aiding Propaganda Ploy

Russian state media are reporting that staged footage purporting to depict Syrian government chemical attacks on civilian populations will receive broad dissemination via Western corporate media today, September 11, 2018.

From Sputnik International:

As the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation reported, all the fake footage of “chemical attacks,” designed to facilitate the implication of Syrian government forces, is expected to be sent to different TV channels before the end of the day.

“According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shugur, where “chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shugur in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks,” the Reconciliation Center said.

The Russian military added that the militants had brought two containers loaded with a chlorine-based toxic substance to Jisr al-Shughur to make the provocation seem “natural.”

“The plot envisages staged scenes showing ‘activists’ from the Civil Defense (“White Helmets”) ‘helping’ the residents of Jisr al-Shughur after the Syrian army allegedly used the so-called barrel bombs with poisonous substances,” the center said. (Emphases added)

The alleged psychological warfare maneuver comes on the 17th anniversary of the massive false flag terror attacks on New York and Washington DC. The 2001 events were used as a pretext for a global US-led “war on terror” resulting in the wide scale devastation of Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria, millions of civilians deaths, and all at a cost of untold trillions to US taxpayers.

This is an updated version of my post of August 14 on The Fundamental Option, which WordPress suppressed by taking down the Fundamental Option blog that had been active for only 1¼ days — after taking down Fellowship of the Minds the day before.

Last Friday, FBI deputy director finally fired FBI agent (and suspected CIA agent as well) Peter Strzok who revealed his blatant, anti-Trump political prejudices in text messages with his adulterous lover Lisa Page (also an FBI agent).

On August 13, Strzok set up a GoFundMe account, soliciting donations for his “legal costs” and to compensate for “his lost income”.In just one day, he’s received $365,515 of his goal of $500,000 from allegedly 9,483 people.

‘Breaking Bad Wolf’

Why American cop and whistleblower Mark Dougan turned to Russia for sanctuary

Editor’s Note: This new documentary from RT features Palm Beach Sheriff Deputy Mark Dougan, a whistleblower-turned-political emigre. It illustrates the corruption of a local law enforcement agency and the very real dangers of running a blog critical of one’s publicly-elected employer. If the United States had a truly free press Dougan’s story wouldn’t be suppressed. Note that RT is, of course, a “Kremlin-funded” news outlet.

While flying close to a small airstrip just over the US border with Canada, the passenger aboard a small Cessna seemed to have a heart attack. After an emergency landing, he miraculously recovered, jumped out of the plane, threw some money at the pilot and ran away. A few days later, he resurfaced in Russia. It may sound like a spy novel plot, but it’s just one episode in the true story of real-life American cop-turned-whistleblower, Mark Dougan. After exposing endemic corruption in the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, he had to fled the United States and found refuge in Russia.

After leaving the US Marine Corp in, Dougan wanted something more adventurous than an office job and became a police officer. After six years, he left the PBSO, appalled by the blatant criminal activity that he saw within the force. He later started a blog, giving honest cops a forum where they could anonymously discuss and expose illegal conduct by senior law enforcers, who predictably, hated it! After being hounded, harassed, and placed under surveillance for six years, The FBI raided John’s home and seized all his digital equipment; they even gave him his own code name; Bad Wolf.
That was when the whistleblower realised he had to flee and escaped to Russia, leaving behind his wife and young children. RTD’s new and exclusive film, Breaking Bad Wolf, tells his incredible story.

Did Trump Call Illegal Immigrants ‘Animals’?

Editor’s Note: This brief analysis from Russia’s RT succinctly illustrates the extent to which US corporate news media now function as political disinformation outlets. “Disinformation” is defined as “false information spread deliberately to deceive.” Under common journalistic practice an editor’s attempts to persuade her readership on a certain stance is presented as an “editorial.”

Now, however, in their barely-concealed contempt for Donald Trump’s presidency, even the New York Times, which promotes itself as a bastion of sober journalistic objectivity, knowingly partakes in mispresenting information for an intended effect.

Regardless of one’s take on Trump’s political leadership, the notion that he simply uses the “fake news” label to denote news stories and media he personally dislikes is simply self-serving and disingenuous. The analysis below is but one example of how the hyper-politicized US news media undermine their own credibility.

RT
(May 17, 2018)

Mainstream US media was quick to condemn the president’s remarks as bigotry and racism, and a dehumanization technique aimed at any and all immigrants from Latin America who enter the US illegally across the border with Mexico.

Trump “lashed out at undocumented immigrants,” the The New York Times reported:

A ThinkProgress journalist called it a “Hitlerian note”:

Jennifer Rubin, an anti-Trump columnist at the Washington Post, called it “utter dehumanization of men, women and children.”

CNN commentator Keith Boykin argued Trump’s comments were “the same dehumanization tactic used by slave traders and slave owners to justify the oppression of black people for hundreds of years.”

The Huffington Post’s catchy headline read: “Trump Refers To Immigrants As ‘Animals.’ Again.” The New York Times meanwhile delicately highlighted that Trump was referring to just “some” of the immigrants, not all of them.

There is just one tiny problem with the story: it’s ‘fake news’, as Trump himself would probably call it.

If one watches the actual video of the exchange from Wednesday’s roundtable – rather than the selectively truncated segments – it becomes clear Trump was referring to the notorious MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, gang members rather than Latin Americans or illegal immigrants in general. A description of the exchange on C-SPAN, the cable channel that carries live political broadcasts, clearly says Trump was referring to “MS-13 gang members.”

The hour-long portion of the event open to the press was live-streamed on YouTube by the White House, and the relevant exchange is available to anyone who wishes to hear for themselves (at 24:18).

This is not the first time Trump has referred to Mara Salvatrucha members as “animals,” either. He used the term in a June 2017 speech about illegal immigration in Long Island, New York. Another notable instance was the July 2017 rally in Youngstown, Ohio.

MS-13 originated in California during the 1980s, among refugees fleeing the civil war in El Salvador, in which the Reagan administration backed the right-wing government. The gang, known for its viciousness, has since spread throughout the US and even Canada, and is reportedly allied with Mexican drug cartels.
