Back in May of 2017 we wrote about Red Jihad: How Marxism Uses Islam as Just Another Revolutionary Tool. Marxism and Islam have been linked as allies against us in both world wars. The only question is which one, between globalist Marxism and globalist Islam, is actually driving the globalist bus. We have always thought the Communism was exploiting Islam for its own purposes, but, it ain't necessarily so. It could be the other way round.
Since the economic collapse of the old Soviet Union most have held that the primary concern of the free world, since then, was China, because Russia was (perhaps) no longer Communist but something else, something less, and less of a threat. Again, it ain't necessarily so.
As pointed out in Red Jihad, Russia remains the only power on earth that could potentially destroy us and live to tell the story:
China and Russia, long thought by many to be at odds with each other are showing that that, too, ain't necessarily so. The major link between China and Russia seems to be their mutual support of Iran, and all things Jihadist.
What we may be looking at here, aligned against the free world, is a return to originalist Marxism, and a return to originalist Islam, and a strong Marxist-Islamic alliance against us.
The book argues that Russia has fueled the Islamic terrorist movement and has been manipulating Islam since the days of Lenin. The Russian-Chinese-Iranian axis in the Middle East is the current manifestation of this hate-filled, evil, off again-on again alliance against Israel (and Saudi Arabia) first, and us second.
Meanwhile, under the gentler assault of Cultural Marxism, we are destroying ourselves, as a nation.
It's all Globalist at the core. It is the exact same Globalism worked for by 'great' Americans such as the late John McCain, and all the other New World Order American politicians, living and dead.
If the book is right, we may be in the final stages of a world war we didn't even know we were in.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.
Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again.
Get behind President Trump, or someone just like President Trump if such a person exists, and make America Constitutional again.
With fear and trembling, work out your salvation--Phil 2:12
Seek the Truth; Find the Way; Live the Life.
Please God, and Live Forever.

I disagree with the premise that Russia is a real threat to the US. A recurring thorn in the side, yes, but not a real threat. The collapse of USSR reduced Russia to a third-world country (believe me, it is a third-worls country - no matter how much the guys who've only ever been to Russian cities say otherwise) - this is revealed in Putin's little stunts with Georgia and Ukraine ("recapturing the lost honor and glory", after all). With the USSR gone, all real alliances it had (Cuba, other "client states", Middle East) are now purely alliances of convenience (rather than ideological) and even then, those alliances are kept as tokens of the "great USSR". Russia is built upon what scraps the USSR still had (medicine and military-industrial development were indeed once the strong suits of USSR - but, corruption took care of the first (reducing it to almost nothing) and simple lack of creativity (no ideological warfare, no new doctrines of war, no new designs for any machinery or weapon - only slight modifications to the stuff USSR had, frankly, in 60's and 70's)) - it's a vestigial empire that thinks itself a great power (rather than a monkey with an atomic bomb). But China always was a different story. The fact that their entire ruling structure transitioned to a new fascist economy without the country dying to corruption (it's still there in great amounts, but we can't depend on Chinese plutocracy actually defanging China through government money theft and such). Second is that Chinese play the long game - thanks to a comparatively smooth transition, they (unlike Russia) didn't lose any spy apparatus and such at all - instead, they supplemented what they've had with digital measures and economic control over whole countries. As for Iran... The mullahs are just useful idiots (they are too weak for anything else - that's the way it is when they've got nothing to offer but manpower) - for example, much is made of their "invincibility" in Afghanistan. As if - if the USSR was really committed to it, it could've taken the entire Afghanistan by simply genociding every village they came across and starving the rebels through either bombardments or/and "scorched earth" strategy. So... The new "Axis" is something like this - China is best compared to Hitler's Germany (because they have economic and military resources of a superpower nation), Russia is the Japanese Empire (thinking they are invincible - especially against America) and Iran is Italy (the "soft underbelly" of the "alliance" - they have no economy to speak of and only can contribute in manpower). But I don't think we'll ever get an all-out war these days. Not because of nuclear weapons (because Russians and Iranian mullahs are actually crazy enough to use them), but because the guys in power realized the greater subversive power of the "boiled frog" approach. After all, deep down, they know that they can't outfight all the free peoples out there - but Sun Tzu indeed advocated winning without fighting...

From a strictly military viewpoint, it doesn't matter whether Russia is a third world country or not. All that matters, militarily, is what their war fighting capabilities are. And they are the only nation on earth that still has tens of thousands of nuclear warheads mounted on delivery systems. Russia has always, even in its most powerful Soviet Union days, spent the largest percent of it's whole government revenue on defense, always more than 50%, sometimes as high as 90%. I see no reason not to believe they still do the same thing, regardless of how that overall revenue may be reduced. It is still significant. And it is sufficient to maintain their nuclear arsenal, since it's almost all they have.
They are more than a 'monkey with an atom bomb'. They have the ability to possibly overwhelm America's defenses, especially with Marxists in high office in America, cutting, demoralizing and otherwise harming American defenses.
Granted, it is mostly an ideological war, but it could go hot at any moment. They are still Communist. And so are a lot of Americans.

The point is that Russia's fighting capabilities may look impressive at a first glance, but, in reality, they have nothing on the USA. They spend a lot on military, yes - but... It's as I said - no new concepts of warfare, only recycled things from Soviet times. Look at the Gulf War for how lack of actual innovation went for Iraqis. The paradigms of war always change fron century to century - if there's no innovation, the military risks becoming a bunch of club-wielding savages in the atomic age. And the only reason Russia looks even relatively threatening is the fact that most other nations that were touted as superpowers in the past (France, Britain, Germany) ate away their military budgets in exchange for entitlements and social programs. Russia's armies are only good for quick strikes against countries that couldn't fight back - but look just how sanctions against oil and gas (really, their economy has almost nothing else) pushed them almost to the brink and severely slowed down their various operations in other countries. In a big conventional conflict with a nation that has comparable numbers of soldiers and tech, Russia would lose and lose fast, because they don't have the economic strength for anything more then bombing little countries - heck, even before, there was a reason why USSR fell not too long after the war in Afghanistan. So, in reality, the nukes are their saving grace - and I'm sure that more than half of the nukes inherited from Soviets are either secretly decommissioned or written off (believe me, corruption plagues every part of Russia in levels unheard of in America and the rest of the civilized world - corruption is all but institutionalized there). Russia approaches the big leagues, but it still can't play in them - the deciding factors there are the lack of innovations in military doctrine, a middling resource-based economy (that can be easily disabled by something as trivial as strategic bombings) and utterly rampant corruption in the military.

Yes, but remember the ideological part of the war, which we are losing. They don't need a lot of nuclear or other military might, just a little of it, and the evil ruthlessness or insanity required to use it.
Remember Thomas Sowell's greatest fear during the Obama presidency, that Iran (or someone) would light off a crude nuclear device over or in America somewhere, and Obama's response would be to surrender.
Who knows what Comrade President JoBama O'Biden would do?

I'm also not sure about what J'Obiden would do. But nothing good will come out of him, that's for sure. The Russians sure are ruthless enough (their historical military strategy often defaulted to either scorched earth or drowning enemies through human wave tactics), but Iran is the only player out there that has the insanity to use the nukes. The mullahs do believe that Allah will protect them from the radiation. Just on that alone the entire world should've done everything it could to prevent these guys from obtaining nuclear weapons. Speaking of these weapons... I'm not even sure what are they even for. They don't stop conventional warfare at all (except among big countries) - and since MAD policy is in effect everywhere, nobody sane will use them against humanity. So what they're for? I'm sure that aliens don't exist - the only aliens mankind ever needs to worry about are dwelling in the second heaven/i.e. Satan's own demonic host. Particularly as there are whole ideologies and countries wholly dedicated to demonic aims.

"Who knows what Comrade President JoBama O'Biden would do?"
The facilitators and keepers of ideologies are the Powers and Principalities. Those who look upon them see power so they eagerly bring them (ideologies) into their minds. They are then 'eaten by the talking ideas' said Fyodor Dostoevsky, meaning they become possessed by a death wish for their own civilization and everything that makes life worthwhile. But if the Facilitators choose, the death wish can turn upon the mind possessed and cause it to commit suicide or murder. Again, this very thing was foretold by Dostoevsky.
So with respect to Biden and his "death wish" confederates, they will continue to insanely destroy the nation that nourished them until led to do otherwise.

That points to something I never contemplated before:
Maybe that's what it's been all about all along.

Now that I think about it, there is a definite link between insanity and possession (and even the concept of breath/pneuma). The concept of "inspiration" (in the ancient meaning, not the modern term sanitized of divine connotations) is that link. Take, for example, ancient Norse term "odr" - which means "divine inspiration". It's most famous and common manifestations, curiously, are battle fury of the berserkers, prophetic visions (seidr) and poetic inspiration (the name of the god Odin means "master of Odr" and, fittingly enough, Odin was the god of fury in battle, poets/skalds, breath, sky, magic and so forth). This concept has it's rough analogues in other Indo-European cultures - immediate word cognates from other languages are Latin "vates"/"poet" ("Vatican" comes from this word) and Old Irish "faith"/"seer, prophet" (the usage of which today is even more obvious). Add to that the fact that pagan gods are demons (maybe not real beings, but demons could conceivably impersonate the beings from the stories) and the fact that Indo-Iranian peoples knew how to induce such a state through the sacred drink of soma/haoma... As for ideologies... The prime link thete is the devil's false vision of "man as god"/master of creation - it has echoes in all the world's false faiths. Only Christianity knows the truth that only divine grace and not man's own efforts can hope to save man. Every other faith is "do it yourself" - as if works alone could make man perfectly good to match (and thus be worthy of) the perfectly good God. Everyone who believes that they can somehow attain salvation (wordly or otherwise) purely through their own efforts has thus swallowed the original lie. This includes Communists too - considering that Communism is effectively perverted Anabaptist Protestantism of Thomas Muntzer (except with God cut out).

Absolutely!. Here's Noah Webster's definition of inspiration in his American Dictionary of the English Language 1828:
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.
