Notes on the GEC-Macroni Scientists Murders of the 1980s working on Star Wars (SDI: Strategic Defense Initiative). How the tech sector links to Ghislaine Maxwell, Oxford, and even back to WW2 etc. Chapter of the ACZS Network by Quinton Mitchell

Key Words: Oxford, Technology, Semi-conductors, software, defense, military, UK, USA

The more I understand Star Wars it seems to have laid the ground work for the current and future mission of the United States Space Force, e.g., having outer-space capabilities (lasers, microwave, photon weapons, etc.) in sync with terrestrial based locations to detect high altitude or outer orbit enemy defense systems and disable energy satellite systems, by linking state of the art of satellite and radar facilities.

Disclaimer: All information in this post is public information freely available to the public. It’s a bit confusing, but these people did die. The question to ask, well, the one that no one seems to asks is, who was the Secretary of Defense during the Star Wars Program? That key paints a larger picture of the world at large in which these people died. It’s a little strange to thing that all these people who were government contractors working in part in support of a secret US program would die without it being known to the intel community. There are a lot of odd coincidences that paints a picture that leads to today. For example, Caspar Weinberger had ties to Iran Contra which had ties to Adnan Khashoggi, who had ties to Ghislaine Maxwell, and Caspar Weinberger would go to Oxford (home of the Maxwells) to find the American Rothermere Institute at Oxford University with President Bill Clinton (who has ties to Maxwell and Epstein, who in turn has ties to Trump), and the Rothermere name comes from a notable newspaper owner involved in the unfolding situation that led to WWII…and this paper was later acquired by the Maxwells. The coincidences are too much.

The nineteen eighties was beyond clandestine (sometimes sloppy) and people to this day got their start in this era such as William Barr (whose father employed Jeffrey Epstein), John Kerry (who investigated Iran Contra), Bob Mueller (who investigated Iran Contra and later Russia Gate), Donald Trump (friends of Ghislaine and Jeffrey), Bill Clinton (same as Trump), Jeffrey Epstein himself, etc. It seems the Maxwell’s trafficked in “information”, hence why his daughter and lover, Jeffrey, peddled into elite circles. Information is power, regardless of what it is. Who is sleeping with who? What is a person’s sexual proclivities? What are new emerging trends in technology be it computing, satellite, defense, etc.? By infiltrating key industries such as entertainment (fashion, modeling, movies), academia, business (Industrial espionage), and politics, this information can be sold to the highest bidder if it proves to be actually valuable, yet, it can also prove dangerous if certain promises are made which are not kept, or people realize you have to much information that’s hard to determine but makes people nervous.

Notes: So we know Caspar Weinberger was the Secretary of Defense in the US, but the scientists died mostly in the UK, but also in Germany, Sweden (if my memory is right), etc. What is the benefit of killing these scientists? 1. They knew too much, but these people seemed like family people or young people with promising future careers who wouldn’t want to jeopardize that. I can get a few scientists going rogue but the volume of scientists killed is disturbing. 2. A enemy foreign actor or actors killed these people. For example Soviets and to this day the Russians are known for being able to kill targets in places such as the UK and there’s a large Eastern European population in Britain. As the Cold War was on overdrive, killing scientists would have bought the Soviets more time in theory in hampering any sort of Anti Nuclear Weapon system, since such a system would result in the Russians losing in the Mutually Assured Destruction balance of power. 3. It seems there were no reprisals for the killings of these people, meaning, that it’s possible British or American intel at the time in the 1980s knew of this but saw it as convenient, in that possible leaks are taken out and then you can blame the Soviets, i.e., killing two birds with one stone. 4. Such deaths would scare other workers into silence 5. It could have been another actor posing as either Western or Eastern intel taking this people out, in order to extract information but get away scotch free in the tug of war between the superpowers, e.g., Israel or another Middle Eastern actor.

COMPANIES THAT EXISTS TODAY THAT ACQUIRED GEC-MACRONI ASSETS: GEC MACRONI STRATEGY: Ericsson as ERIC and ERIXF (acquired parts of Marconi Communications, i.e., Marconi PLC., and Ericsson owns the name rights), Telent (acquired parts of Marconi Communications, i.e., Marconi PLC), BAE Systems as BASY and BAESF (British Aerospace bough General Electric Company’s, GEC, defense arm to create BAE Systems), TransDigm as TDG (acquired Esterline Technologies which is subsidiary, in which Esterline Technologies was parent to CMC Electronics, i.e., Canadian Marconi Company), Alstom S.A. as ALSMY (formed when parts of GEC merged with Alstom), Osram (formed from GEC and Osram falls are ams AG as AMSSY and AUKUF), Otis as OTIS (acquired parts of GEC. Interesting fact that Otis bought parts of United Technologies which appears in the Bolshwing Fthenakis section), Cobham (Marconi Instruments was sold to IFR Systems which was then sold to Aeroflex but then sold to Cobham but then parts of this were sold by Cobham to Viavi Solutions as VIAV which interestingly makes sensors for Microsoft connect and Microsoft will appear in the Maxwell and Bolschwing Fthenakis section, but Cobham was bought by private equity firm Advent International), Leonardo SpA (via GEC’s radar merger with Leonardo’s as FINMY and FINMF predecessor, Finmeccanica). 

Section 1

  1. 25+ Scientist associated with Macroni PLC, working on a program for the Star War (SDI: Strategic Defense Initiative) end up dead, mostly in England, but also in France, Germany, and Sweden. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/273526017_The_Star_Wars_Murders_Revisiting_a_Cold_Case_from_the_Cold_War ; https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-1988-04-17-8803090394-story.html; https://apnews.com/article/0f96d2d3641717f2e71df0a6fdd99a2b
  2. Macroni today exists as part of BAE, Ericsson, and Telent.
  3. Star Wars was first thought of in 1983 but became an actual program in 1984 under President Ronald Reagan.
  4. Secretary of Defense while these deaths happened was Caspar Weinberger in the USA under Reagan and in the UK under Margaret Thatcher there were (3) Defense Ministers in the 1980s which were Michael Ray Dibdin Heseltine, Baron Heseltine (Pembroke College, Oxford), George Younger, 4th Viscount Younger of Leckie (New College, Oxford), and Tom King, Baron King of Bridgwater (Emmanuel College, Cambridge)
  5. Secretary of Defense charged with overseeing it was Caspar Weinberger
  6. Caspar Weinberger was indicted during the Iran Contra Situation in which the Reagan Administration sold arms illegally to Iran and with proceeds for the sale going to Contra Death Squads in Nicaragua, violating the Boland Amendment, who were fighting the Sandinista faction, but these groups were also trafficking Cocaine such as that of the Medellin Cartel, which thus made it into the USA, and would play a role in the 1980s crack epidemic, the destruction of inner city communities such as the African American community (War on Drugs, mass incarceration, etc.). This drug industry was known by the authorities and involved characters such as Freeway Ricky Ross.
  1. Iran Contra involved characters such Adnan Khashoggi, an arms dealer and one of the wealthiest men alive in the 1980 (his yacht was sold later to Donald Trump), and he was the uncle to recently murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the late Dodi Fayed who was the lover of the late Princess Diana, with Diana of course being the sister-in-law to Prince Andrew (who was later incriminated in the Jeffrey Epstein case).
    1. Also, Ivana Trump and Ghislaine Maxwell were friends with ties to Adnan.
    2. Further, the investigation into Iran Contra was oversaw in part in the Southern District of New York under Judge Robert Morgenthau, and the Morgenthau Family is related the Lehman Family (Lehman Brothers Financial Firm involved in the 2008 Financial Crisis) and the Bronfman Family, in which the Bronfman’s involve:
      1. Edgar Bronfman, Sr., who was the CEO of Seagram Empire and was the President of the World Jewish Coalition (WJC). Edgar Bronfman Sr. advocated for closer ties of Israel to the Soviet Union and to this day this relationship still exists, and Russian is the second most spoken language in Israel.
      2. Further, Edgar Bronfman Jr. was in Jeffrey Epstein’s “Black Book” and he was the former president of Warner Music Group.
      3. Sara and Claire Bronfman were indicted in the NVIUM Sex Scandal.
      4. Sara Bronfman’s husband is Igtet Basit, who was the special UN enjoy to the Libya after the fall of Qaddafi (which corresponded with the Benghazi situation).
      5. Lastly, John Kerry and Robert Mueller were involved as the investigation team during Iran Contra, but Kerry and Mueller (later involved in investigating Russia-Gate) were prep school friends.
      6. William Barr, the now Chief Justice, was also involved during this era and he was an CIA operative working in the Reagan Administration. William Barr’s dad, Donald Barr, was a teacher at an exclusive girl’s prep school in New York, which of course hired Jeffrey Epstein.
      7. Edgar Bronfman Sr., his sister was Phyllis Lambert, who helped convicted killer, Ira Einhorn, post a $40,000.00 bail. https://web.archive.org/web/20100831230541/http://dir.salon.com/story/news/feature/2002/10/18/einhorn/index.html
  2. Caspar Weinberger was later pardoned by George H.W. Bush (former CIA Director and Skull and Bones Member from Yale University – also, ties of course to the energy sector).
    1. Caspar later goes to find the American Rothermere Institute with President Bill Clinton (also a Rhodes Scholar) in Oxford, England.
    2. Oxford was the home to Robert Maxwell and Ghislaine Maxwell (alumni of Balliol College, Oxford)
    3. According to Tatler, (Ghislaine) Maxwell recalled that her father installed computers at Headington in 1973 and her first job was training to use a Wang and later programming code. https://www.tatler.com/article/tatler-archives-maxwell-family-interview (Wang is now owned by Getronics, a Dutch IT Firm).
    4. Oxford has a history and legacy as having a lot of spies and intel agents involved in that area: https://www.mi5.gov.uk/mi5-in-world-war-ii
  1. Robert Maxwell would own the Mirror Group of newspapers owned by the Rothermere family. So that is the link there. https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-14136044
    1. Rothermere is named after the Harold Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Rothermere who was a newspaper tycoon associated with the Daily Mirror and Daily Mail, with his brother Alfred Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Northcliffe, but also was a fascist and associated with Nazi spy seductress, princess Stephanie von Hohenlohe
    2. Stephanie Hohenlohe received an award from Hitler, was purportedly of Jewish ancestry in part, and also was involved with the Habsburg family since she had an affair with Archduke Franz Joseph’s son-in-law, thus making her a few degrees of separation removed from Archduke Franz Ferdinand who was shot by Serbian nationalists, the Black Hand, documented by French British spy Henry Pozzi, thus sparking World War I. So, she has always been around political intrigue involving the major World Wars.
  2. The Daily Mirror and Daily Mail were acquired by media tycoon Robert Maxwell, father of Ghislaine Maxwell, i.e., the associate to child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, under the name the Mirror Group, which know goes by Reach PLC. Robert also owned half of MTV Europe. NOTE: Maxwell was snubbed for a take over of another paper, The News of the World, and this paper was given to Rupert Murdoch, i.e., the later founder of the Fox Media Empire (which later merged with Disney).
    1. NOTE: Rupert Murdoch’s ex-wife, Wendy Deng, was reportedly also dating Vladimir Putin, but these rumors were never confrimed https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2016/03/vladimir-putin-wendi-deng-couple
  3. In June 1985 Maxwell announced a takeover of Clive Sinclair’s ailing home computer company, Sinclair Research, through Hollis Brothers, a Pergamon subsidiary. https://www.nytimes.com/1985/06/18/business/sinclair-to-sell-british-unit.html
    1. NOTE: Britain’s “Silicon Valley”, i.e., the Silicon Fen located in Cambridge (reminds me of the firm Cambridge Analytica) is tied to Sinclair Computer. The interest in technology in the area started with Sinclair Research and Acorn Computers (the British IBM and Apple at their times).
    2. Note: Cambridge Analytica was run by SCL Group under CEOs Nigel and Alexander Oakes and Alexander Nix. The company focused on “global election management” with an emphasis on the developing world but was later vital in the election Trump and the Brexit campaign. Cambridge Analytica had ties to Steve Bannon and Erik Prince, i.e., the son of Elsa Prince a member of the conservative Council on National Policy which had ties to the John Birch Society and Western Goals Foundation set up by General John K. Singlaub involved in the Iran Contra Scandal, etc.
    3. The chief investors in Cambridge Analytica were Robert Mercer, a former co-CEO of Renaissance Technologies, a hedge fund, started with James Simons (who was involved in the Panama Papers). Robert Mercer was involved in setting up the Super Pac, Make American Number 1 which supported Donald Trump, and the right-wing outlet Breitbart, etc. The Mercers introduced Steve Bannon (formerly of Goldman Sachs) to Trump. The Mercers have donated millions to climate change denial (Source: Pogrebin, Robin; Sengupta, Somini (2018). “A Science Denier at the Natural History Museum? Scientists Rebel”).
      1. Cambridge Analytica became Emerdata, ran by a lady who as associated with the Mercer Family Foundation, but also had ties to Frontier Service Group worker Johnson Chun Shun Ko of Hong Kong, linked to Erik Prince of Blackwater, in which Erik Prince was doing security work for the Pro-Chinese infrastructure project the New Silk Road Project, i.e., Belt and Road Initiative. https://www.forbes.com/profile/johnson-ko/#6ac63c20670a. So, why is an American mercenary helping a Pro-China infrastructure project if something bigger isn’t being planned, such as the full integration of a possibly capitalist democratic china into the global economy, which would be the last domino in full global economic integration, and with a nation like Israel as the chief IT state of the world?
      2. It is interesting because Steven Bannon is no stranger to Hong Kong, having set up a scam company called “Internet Gaming Entertainment, or IGE, had found a novel way to make millions of dollars each month in the exploding online video-game industry. Working from the 19th floor of a skyscraper in Hong Kong, the company sold virtual goods for real money” (Shawn Boburg and Emily Rauhala, August 4, 2017). Bannon had invested in IGE which was being ran by former Disney Star, Brock Pierce, in Hong Kong, but Brock Piece was incriminated as being involved in a rape case in Los Angeles with Michael Rector (who fled the United States as a result) who hosted lavish gay parties in LA which featured people like Brian Singer.
      3. Brock Pierce was a guest to Jeffrey Epstein at his island during Epstein’s “Science Fairs”. According to Kim Masters (2019) “In early 2011, about a decade after the Digital Entertainment Network imploded, Pierce visited the Virgin Islands to attend “Mindshift,” a conference of top scientists hosted by Epstein.” Further Kim Masters (2019) stated that Epstein also invited a NASA computer engineer, an MIT professor of electrical engineering and a Nobel laureate in theoretical physics.
  4. Sinclair sold its computer rights to Amstad in India but this falls under Sky Group which is controlled by Comcast.
  5. Acorn exists today as Broadcom after being bought by Morgan Stanley restructured, renamed, etc.
  6. In relation to the Mirror Group, In 1991 the company was due to be investigated via an Anton Piller order for alleged theft of software from companies including Adobe Inc., Autodesk and Microsoft. The action was delayed as it coincided with the death of Robert Maxwell but was recommenced in 1992. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/pc-pirates-who-sail-the-software-seas-rogue-programs-are-bad-news-for-supplier-and-user-alike-warns-1556890.html
  7. NOTE: Robert Maxwell was also known for possibly being a double-spy or triple spy (UKUS, Israel, USSR). He is buried in Israel. He purported helped sell arms to a young Israel after WW2, and as we can see his media firms were also involved in Software.
  8. NOTE: There was a software scandal with an Israeli American company known ad Amdocs, who were reported by Fox News as having phone records of high US government officials. Eavesdropping software.
    1. NOTE: Israel has units such as Unit 8200 and programs such as the Talpiot Program which are focused on cyber security, sending Israelis to US universities and to work in industry.

UNDERSTANDING THE MAXWELL IT STRATEGY AND THAT OF….ISRAEL (NO HATE TO ISRAEL BY THE WAY)

The GEC-Marconi Scientists Murders involved the Strategic Defense Initiative which fell under US Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger who would later go to find a policy center in Oxford called the Rothermere American Institute, Israel’s potential role in the Stuxnet Program, the Jonathan Pollard spy case, the Amdocs scandal, Unit 8200 and the Talpiot Program, the rise and fall of WeWork which was set up by an ex-Israeli naval veteran, Yuri Miler’s connection to Jared Kushner and his ties to Facebook, and Robert & Ghislaine Maxwell’s and Jeffrey Epstein’s interest in technology such as Robert Maxwell’s attempt to procure Sinclair Research’s home computer….

It is all about the high-stakes world of intellectual property and scientific trade secrets particularly those relating to software, hardware, and what would later become the internet. It seems the Israelis and other states such as Russia in the Cold War, but particularly Israel, are interested in stealing or acquiring Western IT products, ranging from eavesdropping software, software related to rocketry/ballistics, and the list goes on.

Israel seems to have (3) main goals. (1) Consolidation of lands back to Israel’s Biblical Borders under King David and this is because of the strong Messianic religious devotion of the Jews, or., cultural bonds for secular Jews, (2) Swinging above its weight by leveraging cyber and IT to defend itself, such as Industrial sabotage software, eavesdropping software, analytics, Artificial Intelligence, fiber optics, data mining, crypto currency, and military technology spanning satellites and nuclear capabilities, and (3) ensuring economic prosperity by juggling itself between the main super-powers such as the US, Russia, and China, and it seems that Israel might be looking Eastward for future prosperity by working with Russia and China particularly over economic catalysts such as the New Silk Road project. (4) The acquisition of technology secrets and IP which is where actors such as Robert Maxwell comes into play, but this baton was picked up by his daughter Ghislaine and her associate Jeffrey Epstein, after Robert’s death.

Companies still in existence which had ties to Robert Maxwell:

Main Companies today: (Directly) Apollo Management Group, Reed Elsevier, Viacom CBS, Reach PLC, Future PLC, Pearson PLC, Benesse Corporation (Indirectly, i.e., attempted buys which failed by Maxwell or illicit use of software, etc.) Comcast which acquired Armstad under its Sky Group in which Armstad was owned by Sinclair Research and Maxwell attempted to but their PC division, Adobe Inc., Autodesk, and Microsoft via Maxwell’s Mirror Groups illicit use of their software. Disney via their acquisition of 21st Century Fox of Fox owned by Rupert Murdoch in which Murdoch successfully acquired the News of the World paper from the Carr Family over Maxwell.

Maxwell Communication Corporation > in 1991 after his death the assets were sold to McGraw Hill which is one of the Big 3 Educational Book Publishers (now owned by Apollo Management Group), Reed Elsevier, and Simon & Schuster (subsidiary of Viacom CBS).

The Mirror Group, i.e., under Maxwell’s Pergmaon Holdings > The Mirror Group was a newspaper and media firm which owned the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror, which were founded in the early twentieth century by Lord Rothermere and his brother Lord Northcliffe. The Mirror Group now goes by Reach PLC which publishes over 83 print publications. In 1991 the company was due to be investigated via an Anton Piller order for alleged theft of software from companies including Adobe Inc., Autodesk, and Microsoft., Action was delayed as it coincided with the death of Robert Maxwell. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/pc-pirates-who-sail-the-software-seas-rogue-programs-are-bad-news-for-supplier-and-user-alike-warns-1556890.html

IPC Media > bought in 1987 by Maxwell > became TI Media which is now owned by Future PLC which publishes more than 50 magazines in fields such as video games, technology, films, music, photography, home, and knowledge.

Pentice Hall > s an American major educational publisher owned by Pearson plc. Pearson plc purchased the education division of Simon & Schuster (including Prentice Hall and Allyn & Bacon) from Viacom.

Berlitz Corporation > is a Japanese-owned language education and leadership training company, which is based in Princeton, New Jersey. The company was founded in 1878 by Maximilian Berlitz in Providence, Rhode Island in the United States. Berlitz Corporation is now a member of the Benesse Group (also known has Benesse Corporation or Benesse Holdings Company), a Japanese company, with more than 547 company-owned and franchised locations in more than 70 countries

MTV Europe > Maxwell owned a 50% stake in MTV Europe (meaning ties to the music industry of course). MTV is now owned by ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks falling under Viacom CBS in the same division hilariously as Mirage Studios which gave us Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Sinclair Research > Sinclair was kind of like the Apple of the UK. Maxwell attempted to buy their personal computer division in 1985 through his Pergamon company but the deal was aborted in 1985 > Sinclair Research was later sold to Amstrad which falls under Sky Group which falls under Comcast (which owns NBCUniversal, etc.) and Armstad’s current role is making satellite receivers since Sky was able to in-source this needed equipment thus cutting out middle-men in hardware, which is a similar business model that Comcast employs itself, i.e., owns hardware but also media content. But Armstad just exists as name, not really a company anymore. https://www.itpro.co.uk/121394/end-of-an-era-as-sky-buys-amstrad

Sexuality in Science-Fiction 1. On Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War (c) (1974). Transgender prediction in Science-Fiction.

The Forever War by Joe Halderman

Disclaimer: Feminism is about equality. I accept it. I appreciate it. Women have the right to work, earn fairly, profit, be leaders, have equal access to amenities that meets their unique physical needs and in a way that isn’t seen as a burden, have sex, make porn, direct porn, be nuns, fight in wars, have kids, don’t have kids, do what they want. A big reason, why I support feminism is due to the history and current realities of violence against women across the globe. I grew up with a very strong-willed mother and she had a sense of humor. As a guy, regarding violence against women, it spurs a type of “old school cop” mentality where it triggers a natural need to protect (though women in many cases can defend themselves), yet, such protections from physical violence in both the developing and developed world needs to be taken seriously. I also don’t hate transgender people, yet this post is really about analyzing the underpinnings to this larger debate, while also looking back to speculative-fiction to see if where we are was actually predicted in the past. What may come off as male criticism, is actually actually me understanding the feelings behind such passion for change, particularly on something as fundamental as gender.

Is support for the trans-community entirely coming from a noble place or are they being used? Similar to the themes underlying the Green Movement, is the promulgation, not even the acceptance, of the transgender lifestyle, something akin to…population control. That sounds very conspiracy based but is it? We have…8 billion people now and the general vibe of social-responsibility seems depopulation. From Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (I don’t hate her) on Instagram speaking about not wanting children while cooking a vegetarian meal, to the drop in birth rates in the developing world, free pornography, but also the showcasing of raising children in “gender-less environments” or giving prepubescent children sex-change homophones, seems like a pragmatic strategy in influencing people to depopulate. A liberal, progressive, nice feelings way of subconsciously promoting a Malthusian view. I’m not even saying that it is bad if this is what’s going on but maybe we need to be honest about it. Blunt.

The Forever War by Joe Haldeman was copyrighted in 1974 but the first Ballentine Books Edition is dated January 1976. To my knowledge, Haldeman fought in the Vietnam War and many consider The Forever War to be the antithesis to the pro-militarism of Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. Having written this piece in the nineteen-seventies, and as a veteran of a war that many considered American aggression, Haldeman created a universe that explores the view of a veteran lost in reality. The story also depicts the military as lifeless, bureaucratic, and more of an industry than an organization that mobilizes to solve a problem but then lay down arms. The main character, Private William Mandela, is recruited into the military to fight for Earth against an alien force (typical, yes I know). Yet, what’s interesting is that humans have to travel light-years to go fight the aliens and due to time-dilation from the Theory of Relativity, the troops stay the same age, only to return to Earth on leave and find it decades or hundreds of years into the future. Haldeman takes the real-life struggle of veterans to adapt to their homes to that of soldier’s in his fictional universe. The 1960s thru 1970s was a time of massive social changes: Feminism, Civil Rights Acts, Berkeley political-movements, Richard Nixon, The Southern Strategy, Barry Goldwater Republicanism, the FBI’s spying on US citizens seen as subversive, the forming of the EPA and rise of the Green Movement, the normalization of pornography with Deep Throat, inflation, dropping the gold standard, the Middle East Oil shock, the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, and the deaths of iconic musical and political activists.

An example of the changes that Pvt. Mandella and his fellow troops have to adapt to is the massive change in sexuality and gender.

A General briefs Mandella and his fellow troops who have just arrived back on Earth after being away from a long time: “Also keep in mind that your friends and sweethearts of two years ago are now going to be twenty-six years older than you. Many of your relatives will have passed away. I think you’ll find it a very lonely world”

“But to tell you more about this world, I’m going to turn you over to Sergeant Siri, who just arrived from Earth. Sergeant?” (p. 97).

“Thank you, General.” It looked as if there was something wrong with his skin, his face; and then I realized he was wearing face powder and lipstick. His nails were smooth white almonds. (p. 97-98).

“I don’t know where to being” He sucked in his upper lip and looked at us, frowning. “Things have changed so very much since I was a boy.” “I’m twenty-three so I wasn’t even born when you people left for Aleph… Well, for starts, how many of you are homosexual? Nobody. “That doesn’t really surprise me. I am, though” – no kidding – “and I guess about a third of everybody in Europe and North America is. Even more in India and the Middle East. Less in South America and China” “Most governments encourage homosexuality – the United Nations is officially neutral – they encouraged it mainly because homolife is the one sure method of birth control” (p. 98).

Private Mandella speaking to the rreader states, “That sounded specious to me. In the army they freeze-dry and file a sperm sample and then vasectomize you. Pretty foolproof.” Mandella further adds, “I’d expected the Earth to have a lot more than nine billion people”. (p. 98).

Sergeant Siri later responds to a rude question by stating he didn’t wear cosmetics just because he was a homosexual; everybody did it. “I decided I’d be a maverick and just wear my face.” (p. 100-101).

The world is changing and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. A world where people can be themselves or choose to be whatever it is they’ve always wanted to be. It’s a good thing that Gay Right’s are finally accepted in society, instead of a historically marginalized group of people forced to live in the shadows, be criminalized, etc. Yet, I will be honest that the Transgender debate when it really first gained steam in the later days of the Obama Administration, and the activism that followed in response to Donald Trump’s election, really caught me off guard. You never said anything our whole lives about supporting trans people, but now all of a sudden? How is that authentic? We’re you just bidding your time?

I did notice and I still do notice that there seems to be a higher degree of support among women and feminism for this. In one way, I think it’s from women’s ability to empathize and an inherent maternal instinct (yet, that’s making a gender assumption). Yet, I also suspect the support is because Feminism where it has been argued that gender is an oppressive construct, patriarchal in nature, which kept women down. So, by supporting transgender rights, it’s really a calculated move for many women to erase what they think is oppressing them. I don’t say this with belittlement to women or hatred of feminism (which is important) but more so from a sense of concern. Has the race to the finish line to liberation gone so far that we’re willing to redefine reality itself, just to win?

Support of this might not be coming entirely from a good place but might very well be from a very vindictive place through a passive-aggressive tactic which in itself is protected by an establishment defined political-correctness. People might have convinced themselves that it is for noble grounds or mercy or care, but what’s their personal incentive? If any? We have to ask. Essentially, the Transgender debate is not just protection of a marginalized group, but also an outlet for petty playground politics between boys and girls (typical in the USA), with the latter enjoying the effeminization of what they consider their antithesis. It might be funny to some but to others it might be coming from a very damaged place where they felt robbed of something and this a way of payback. For example, I was on Instagram and as We all know it’s a tank of political memes or posts spanning the spectrum. One particular post by a very anti-Trump feminist page stated, “Raise your daughters the same!”. I thought to myself that maybe this is where it started for her. She felt robbed, thus angry. We have to be honest in part about this possibly being the case in many ways. The Trans community is far fewer than biologically-born females or males, so such support in part seems like a strategy in female’s own unilateral liberation. There’s no other explanation, especially when we realize that children are being encouraged to not see gender. By the way, I am of the belief that biological sex and gender are the same, or strongly correlated, and I think we are confusing things such as occupational opportunity, power dynamics, expectations, etc., with this whole debate.

This what happens when you mix Postmodern Feminism with a Marxist view of history. The very nature of Postmodernism which falls under Continental existential (ego before essence in the Sartre’s words) frameworks is that there is “no truth”, but that’s a conundrum, because to say there is “no truth” is an objective claim. This is a revelation coming from a guy who went HARD down the joy of postmodernity, until I reached its inevitable conclusion…nothingness, nihilism. A type of feeling where nothing matters while feeling a sense of hyper-awareness. Yet, the deconstruction of my logos was actually therapeutic, too. By erasing or destabilizing my own preconceived notions – my grand narratives – I was able to rebuild my mind while discarding the “baggage”. What was left afterwards was something more liberal, progressive, indifferent to fear, more firm in my own ego, and with a suspicion of power and its ability to oppress people based on human-fabricated narratives. I had survived the over-stimulation of informational overload in a culture built on Darwinian materialism which debases the mind by shattering psyches be it in the normalization of daily gratuitous violence, the matrix impersonal nature of systems, or, the sadio-masochism underlying our notion of capitalist competition, bosses vs workers, etc. I was left with a very agree to disagree but we can all get a long mentality. So this section isn’t an indictment of postmodernism, which as a framework or tool, is a very powerful tool in scanning the infrastructure of our reality. Yet, there’s a level of caution that has to be used when we point that “Postmodern Deconstruction Ray Gun” at something. The power of it is alluring and it can be misused. The goal of postmodernism or Critical-Theory could be equated to using Relativity to flatten all supposed oppressive hierarchies, while also promulgating a type of constant cynical criticism to things so those bad “objective truths” never arise. The frameworks can be used to scan for analysis and discussion, or it can be used to bulldoze like a Miley Cyrus wrecking-ball for a paradigm shift. So, don’t get surprised if people react to what they consider a sense of anti-matter accruing in their subconsciousness. This tactic of “postmodern deconstruction” is a very powerful tool, yet, what if it turns on those who use it? What if what you thought you could control, violently shakes in your hand, and you go out with it? Will female liberation really be female liberation if there is nothing to actually define a female in the future, particularly biologically?

By the way, I am not a Jordan B. Peterson fan my any means. I don’t want to reduce this very important topic, but, in simple speak (referring to myself)…this seems like girls putting makeup on boys and a promotion of a lifestyle by redefining the rules, rather than explicitly supporting people who truly survived the crucible of life and decide to make a conscious adult, or near adult, decision. Maybe women are wired differently to men to not like gender or definition (maybe, I don’t know), but there’s this equal deification of femininity.

Let’s go back to the old notion of the “tomboy”. A girl who at a certain time in our not too far history engaged in things we considered male. Rough-and-tumble, getting dirty, jumping off things, etc. Or, for many of us guys, many can remember as kids that there was always the “female homey”, aka, the girl who was one of the fellas. There was no sexism. She balled with us the court, went on bike adventures, or hung out smoking and listening to music in the woods. If anything sexual was there, most of the guys were too scared act. We were innocent kids spared the realities of adult natural selection. Yet, the reasoning I remember about why the preferred boys was because “they didn’t get a long with girls”, or, “girls are catty”, but years later -after liberal arts college – they’re probably making the opposite case while the stand as firm feminists in solidarity. I think this fine. It shows development. It shows females coming into their self-empowered being. Yet, as a guy, having wrapped my head around the onslaught on articles on feminism by feminists, I look back on those times with a Marxist materialist view and also with a clinical biological-view. Girls were essentially getting the best of both worlds: a way to cancel out competition of other females while also engaging in activities the found more fun, and they were observing the boys in how they rank and stack each other in hierarchies. Searching for “alpha” traits, communication habits, how groups develop and follow plans.

It was unfair for women because a lot of the fun, adventurous, higher risk and reward occupations were highly male, and being a male or a female shouldn’t deny a person from entering a certain occupation. Also, boys were given a more honorific showcasing when it came to things such as sports, but this isn’t necessarily from a unilateral top-down patriarchy, but might have been simply intrinsic to both men and women. It’s a way for mother’s to maybe cheer on their “stud” boys, while also a way for women to asses how others socially appraise a male’s utility thus indicating a higher or lower level of utility. It’s a rough truth to accept… Women and men appraise things different. The lack of ticket-sales at a WNBA game may not be indicative of sexism or patriarchy but essentially men don’t appraise women the same regarding sports, i.e., they don’t find something sexual or of “social value” in it, whereas females might be opposite in watching male’s smash into each other – simulating selection and fitness. We shop differently. In a way, men might actually be more humane when choosing partners than females, though it seems on the surface than men have reduced women to a sexual object. Yet, things are changing I suspect for the better. There is something honorific about watching athletic, the best-of-thr-best, females win World Cups. There’s something attractive about the Amazonian Wonder Woman. There’s a sense of pride men should feel knowing a woman finished a race and she feels more confident that she ever felt. A woman’s confidence is essential and the more confidence the better our species is. However, just because females want to enter male spaces (which is fine) and thus adopt the fashion that is based off the utility from those occupations or lifestyles, doesn’t mean boys want to be girls. A boy doesn’t need to become a girl to like things traditionally associated with femininity, such as home-management, cooking, fashion, hair-care, caring for children, social services, etc.

There’s a lot of conundrums going these days. For example, we can agree that the idea of Genetically-Modified Foods are bad, yet, it’s OK for a child to get chemically created hormone treatments? GMOs could help fight world hunger, but the other might affect a person’s natural sexual development which can have severe consequences if a child as an adult chooses to revert back to the sex they were born. Or, how can the Future be Female if gender doesn’t exist or is merely a social construct? Which is it? People might respond with a “well, it’s actually”, or “um, technically”, but this conundrum in theory means that the we’re going to erase everything which was male, by claiming we’re all going to be equal, but pushing matriarchy. In other words, your gender doesn’t exist, ours does, and this is how it’s going to be. I see no issue with an adult making decision to change their gender. I see no issue in having a world were “gender expectations” aren’t required, but I do see an issue with going against a unifying concept of Mother Nature by redefining gender because it suits political need. There’s something very badass about thinking about hard primal women of our past who also held their child, just as much as there’s something very badass about a male sitting watch at the entrance of the cave. There’s something within us as humans where this survival and division of labor is innate.

Just because the technological age has pushed us to a type of “post-” reality, doesn’t necessarily mean we turn our backs on the one unifying thing of our species…gender. Yet, I repeat we can still support trans people. My concern isn’t trans people but this larger redefinition of what is gender. We have a lot of issues facing our species: over-population in certain areas, depletion of resources, climate change/global warming, sectarian violence, pandemics, etc., but it doesn’t mean we need a “hard inversion” ideology to reverse this. All it really means is we need pace, innovation, and sustainability. A slow peaceful reduction that still operates on firm biological reality. It’s not about race, nationality, ethnicity, religion. Before any of these concepts hit the human mind, we were men and women, working together, maximizing each’s unique utility, to support the tribe, the warren, the village. We may respect each other for the same reasons, such as how we contribute, or how we treat others, but we revere each other in different ways, simply because Mother Nature made us different.

Trying to understand how this debate is being defined…Lets say that sex is sex, so this is the biology of what a person is born, but gender is behavior more so influenced by a type of chromosomal disposition…so…even if these concepts are separate, or better put, separate in certain cases, it’s nearly impossible to actually claim that gender is simply a construct. It seems more fitting to say it’s a construct for certain cases, rather than gender being a construct as a general rule.

I’ve even come to accept parent’s who decide to work with their children if that’s something they wish to do, though, I still feel very awkward about such as move, but it’s really not an awkwardness projected at the individual, but more so the intelligentsia hovering and managing these conversations. But, also I don’t have an issue. I more so focus on the level of love and care that parents can provide for supporting a child. It doesn’t trigger fear or anger in me. I don’t think “men are going to die” or be erased; however, I do suspect that feminism in a pragmatic way is seen as a key asset in mitigating the issues of a global interconnected Cosmopolitan technologically-linked reality. Abortion, the Green Movement, feminism, and to a degree LGBTQI, can all be used objectively to reverse the negative externalities of our very successes. These movements or people associated with them, are natural, they exist in nature, but I do also know that Fortune 500 companies, the United Nations, and even NGO’s such as the Rockefeller Population Council are probably tying to encourage these in clever marketing strategies, reinforcement, education, etc. Even the Green Movement we have to realize will not be some type of egalitarian utopia but really a type of externalization of Corporate Social-Responsibility since they have the means of production. They will be the ones who capitalize on this and own the technologies.

I want to end this by staying, maybe I’m a changed guy. Rather than trying to figure out whatever logical fallacies are underlying the debates, what is ultimately important is a sense of care of others which I do feel is unique to humans. We should take pride in the fact that we’re capable of humanity and care. The more I write this out, I honestly come to accept how the world is going. Trans people should have full protection under the law. There are ways or policies that can be made to permit Trans people to serve or continue serving in the Armed Forces. I just feel we still need to work on the kinks of how we teach it, when we teach it, look at ourselves and admit the true reasons about why we support it by being authentic instead of possibly being calculating, and also that ultimately it’s a choice, but it’s a choice that people should be supported in, but support in, by ensuring the mind is right and capable or mature enough to juxtapose differences, so that choice has value.

Did Orson Scott Card predict Trump and Russia? Similarities between Aleksandr Dugin’s Eurasianism ideology and Orson Scott Card’s Second Warsaw Pact in Ender’s Shadow (1999) and Shadow of the Hegemon (2000) by Quinton Mitchell

Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card

Before I get into Card’s works, first I want to say that despite his personal beliefs, I do feel that people can change or make mistakes. Simply because Card was scrutinized for his personal beliefs and comments (which I don’t endorse), I think we would be doing ourselves a disservice by not objectively analyzing his works to find clues about his predictions on geopolitics. Below, I will provide quotes from Ender’s Shadow and Shadow of the Hegemon. It will astound you the foresight that Card had in 1997 and 2000 relating to geopolitics considering these books were published before the onset of the War on Terrorism, the spy-state, and Russia’s unveiling of their recent ambitious geopolitical moves. Card’s stories are also…pretty good as far as an exploration of the human condition, family, friendships, etc. Though science-fiction probably gets the association of being a very male space with the negative connotation of fantasizing or projecting power-fantasy, I can assure you, that’s not true, and also that Card’s series has a diverse cast, and also one of the strongest female characters in a series I’ve read in Petra Arkanian. Though, there’s always room for criticism. If you ever see the Ender’s Game film, I can assure you that the book is better and the film’s writers (not the actors) ruined the possibility of a more expanded universe which parallels certain aspects of our real-world. Hollywood politics? Further, we have to realize that science-fiction often takes real world issues and simply speculates on their outcomes, particularly involving emerging technology. We can in many ways learn from certain science-fiction works.

It seems like old news now…

First off, I don’t hate Russia. I don’t hate the Russian people. I don’t want bad relations with Russia, but find it unfortunate that the current regime decided to protect its sovereignty with such a bipolar ideology which brings back sentiments of fascism. Why? Really? The Cold War ended when I was two years old. I’m one of those “older” Millennials born before the Berlin Wall fell. I lived in Germany as a kid as well, being an Army Brat, and there was such optimism in the air. The German people were the loving, accepting, anti-war, and curious about the world, and here I am, just a small American kid witnessing the joy. Eastern Europe was excited too. I’m in in my thirties now, but I first saw Putin on TV when I was in the seventh grade… He’s still in power.

I think Russia has a rich culture, history, literary tradition, cinema pioneering tradition, vast wilderness, etc. So, it is not the Russian people that I am concerned with, since they like all people are just under their respective governments, but rather the strategies and maneuvering of the current political regime. There’s been a re-branding process from that old autocratic Communism that build off of older Monarchist serfdom, with what’s now effectively fascism. Sure, oligarchs might own NBA or Premier League soccer teams. Their maybe be glistening futuristic skylines with GAP, Versace, and BMW dealerships. Yet, there is a type of fascism there, appearing as a democracy, but still retaining the underlying psychological underpinnings of Soviet control. It seems Putin remodeled Russia with traditionalist Orthodoxy as a type of marketing attempt to appeal to the fears of segments of the Western and American conservative constituency – a base with a sense of losing a sense of national identity in the face of what they see as the “failures of globalism and Western liberalism, i.e., free-markets and human rights for all”. A rabid Trump supporter or Meme artist would simply utter, “Muh, Russia”, yet, I’m sorry, politics or the games of Team Red or Team Blue, don’t mean much to me on this matter.

It was not far after the election of Donald Trump and then the eventual unveiling of the Russia-gate situation, that I was sitting on my couch after work, and something odd hit me. Russia; Putin’s annexation of Crimea; the expansionist and quasi-Occultism to Aleksandr Dugin’s Eurasianism ideology of his New Bolshevik Party… Chinese and Russian ties regarding the Belt-and-Road Imitative, also known as the New Silk Road Project. Trump… MAGA… Israel with Netanyahu… Is this out of a science-fiction book? I know it sounds strange.

But, imagine yourself at home, watching TV, and you’re hearing the Russia-gate case unfold. If you’ve read Card’s works, and remember them, then a sudden shock might have hit you.

I will get to the point. A character in Ender’s Shadow, named Bean, is a boy with genetically modified intelligence and an IQ which surpasses that of the series’ hero, Ender Wiggins. A street urchin forced to eek out a meager living on the chaotic streets of a dystopian Rotterdam, Netherlands (which in real-life is the end location of the developing Belt-and-Road initiative – strange how Card predicted this), the boy after surviving a Lord of The Flies situation between bands of roaming and abandoned street children, is taken in by a Catholic Nun who is working for the International Fleet (think the United Nations). Her job is to find special children able to be sent to Battle School, a school which trains young children in adult war-games in order to become future commanders of Earth’s next fight with an alien nemesis (you can disregard the science fiction background). Bean while at Battle School, leaning about geopolitics, assesses the world’s political situation for the reader.

While Bean reads, on page 400, it is said, “When the Buggers showed up, China had just emerge as the dominant world power, economically and militarily, having finally reunited itself as a democracy. The North Americans and Europeans played at being China’s “big brothers”, but the economic balance had finally shifted.” (Card, 1999). Further, on page 400, Card (1999) states, What Bean saw as the driving force of history, however, was the resurgent Russian Empire. Where the Chinese simply took for granted that they were and should be the center of the universe, the Russians, led by a series of ambitious demagogues and authoritarian generals, felt that history had cheated them out of their rightful place, it was Russia that forced the creation of the New Warsaw Pact, bringing its effective borders back to the peak of Soviet power – and beyond, for this time Greece was its ally, and an intimated Turkey was neutralized. Europe was on the verge of being neutralized, the Russian dream of hegemony from the Pacific to the Atlantic at last within reach.” Before I go on, in other posts, I will tie these quotes to the geopolitical analysis provided by Zbigniew Brzezinski in his 1997 book titled, The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives. However, I am not endorsing Mr. Brzezinski but will reference his book to find similarities between the books I’m referencing in this post.

How does this relate to Aleksandr Dugin’s Eurasianism strategy? The shortest way to describe it is that he wants to Russia to expand back to its Soviet territorial heights, but Dugin mixes a combination of esoteric thought and geopolitical maneuvering often through an ideological analysis of the “fallen” West. More on his Fourth Politics strategy to come later, but really, it sounds like he removed Lenin-Trotsky (on the surface at least) and inserted Blavatsky. I mean there’s no real surprise that the Nazis tried to find their “origins” in areas which were rich in resources and strategically beneficial. The Occult ideology serves as a type of “wall paper” for Putin’s, not necessarily the Russian people’s, ambitions.

From these quotes from Ender’s Shadow, it does sound very familiar to what is going on now in the real-world under Trump’s foreign policy, which on the surface feeds into a sense of right-wing isolationism, or even to liberal pacifism, or pacifism regardless of political affiliation (not all Republicans are warhawks), but in another light it seems as if Trump is purposely antagonizing the balance-of-power for reasons unknown. A very clever for “every action is an equal reaction” approach by Trump. For example, by challenging NATO members to meet their minimum contribution requirements, if they do meet these it raises his political perception among his base, but if nations refuse to, or simply can’t pay, it hurts the alliance as a whole. We have to remember, that many of these NATO countries suffered through a Eurozone economic crisis while also providing military support to US coalition forces, and, took on the humanist task of permitting refugees from Middle East instability. By withdrawing from a leadership positions and shaming the credibility of US foreign policy it creates an opportunistic void in which a hungry Putin regime can fill. From Trump’s public shaming and attempted embarrassment of foreign leaders in NATO, i.e., our allies; to his sanctions on NATO-member, Turkey, which will only push the Turks closer to Russia, which was the case in the Cold War as the Turks played both sides, and this provides the Russians will Black Sea access to to the Mediterranean, and pulling troops out of Syria and Afghanistan, it seems as if Trump is going down the list of every move to tilt the balance-of-power to Russia. But why? Why would Trump create an opportunity for another superpower to make grand acquisitions on the “Grand Chessboard”?

Things teetering conspiracy comes to mind, yet, not really if we understand the complex historical events which lead to events such as World War II. It is known public record that many in the United States and British establishment helped fund our enemies in their infancy, or led policies of appeasement such as that of Neville Chamberlain regarding Hitler’s annexation of the Sudetenland. In theory, these moves by the US and UK elite to throw secretive financial support to people such as Hitler, or to earlier movements such as the Bolsheviks before WWI, helped to create the justification for eventual Allied intervention. By Trump pulling out of the Middle East, challenging NATO, and presenting the most favorable policy to the Israel state in modern times despite human rights concerns of the Palestinians, it seems as if Trump is a type of “Chaos Agent”, but whose allegiance once you go down this hole is hard to discern. Is he actively while passively assisting Russia on its “Third Rome” dreams by permitting the Russian Government to take the spiritual baton as champion of the Holy Land away from the “fallen West”?

Is Trump on the surface combating Chinese intellectual property theft and unfair trade practices, yet, behind the scenes supporting China by proxy of his appeasement of Russia, in which these two powers are actively engaged in the emerging “Eurasian Superhighway” of the Belt & Road Initiative? Is Trump simply laying the dynamite of the “grand showdown” between powers, which on the surface will seem ideological or a clash of civilizations, but really be a way to usher in a world of less nations, a new monetary system, and larger power-blocs that rise from the ashes of chaos like the symbolism found in the ancient Phoenix symbol? It sounds odd, but if you were tell a farmer in 1902, that the United States would be the sole Western superpower, with dollar hegemony, a permanent place in European politics, and overseeing an international body called the United Nations, that farmer would call you crazy. The truth of the matter, regardless of outcome, is that new systems come, and with the Cold War over, and the United States taking the burden as “problem child” in a world of global mitigation and anti-terror operations, we live in a time where new powers will rise, thus current political & economic realities will change.

In Shadow of the Hegemon by Card (2000) it is said, “Over a million Indians made it out of India before the Chinese sealed the borders. Out of a population of a billion and a half, that was far too few. At least ten times that million were transported over the next year, from India to the cold lands of Manchuria and the high deserts of Sinkiang” (p. 427). “As if this vast redrawing of the world’s map were no enough, Russia announced that it had joined China as its ally, and that it considered the nations of eastern Europe that were not loyal members of the New Warsaw Pact to the provinces in rebellion. Without firing a single shot, Russia was able, simply by promising not to be as dreadful as overlord as China, to rewrite the Warsaw Pact until it was more or less the constitution of an empire that included all of Europe east of Germany, Austria, and Italy in the South, and east of Sweden and Norway in the North” (p. 427-8). “The weary nations of western Europe were quick to “welcome” the “discipline” that Russia would bring to Europe, and Russia was immediately given full membership in the European Community. Because Russia now controlled the votes of more than half the members of that community, it would require constant tug of war to keep some semblance of independence, and rather than play that game, Great Britain, Ireland, Iceland, and Portugal left the European Community. But even they took great pains to assure the Russian bear that this was purely over economic issues and they really welcome the renewed Russian interest in the West.” (p. 428). “In the Pacific, Japan, with its dominant fleet, could afford to stand firm; the other island nations that faced China across various not-so-wide bodies of water had no such luxury” (p. 428).

My last quote from Shadow of the Hegemon by Card (2000), deals interestingly with Muslim nations and how Muslim nations might be unrealized allies to the West and USA. “Indeed, the only force that stood firm against China and Russia while facing them across heavy defended borders were the Muslim nations. Iran generously forgot how threateningly Pakistani troops had loomed along their border in the month before India’s fall, and Arabs joined with Turks in Muslim solidarity against any Russian encroachment across the Caucus or into the vast steppes of central Asia. No one seriously thought that Muslim military might could stand for long against a serious attack from China, and Russia was only scarcely less dangerous, but the Muslims laid aside their grievances, trusted in Allah, and kept their borders bristling with the warning that this nettle would be hard to grasp” (p. 428-9). I find this last quote interesting, not I’m not advocating for Iran, per se, but it would present a different approach to US foreign policy if the Americans and Iranians were on good terms, particularly with a Sino-Russian alliance as a possibility. However, the United States commitment to Israel, especially against its enemies such as Hezbollah, and the history of strained US-Iranian relations regarding regime changes, oil nationalization and the rise of the Ayatollah, has hurt this possibility, though the possibility of peace is always possible.

This all sounds strange, but bare in mind that contradictions avail themselves while these real-world happenings unfold themselves. For example, Erik Prince, the “former” leader of Blackwater Private Military Group and a noted Zionist was noted in mainstream publications for working with the Chinese-based Frontier Service Group on the bold infrastructure project, a project which has included human rights abuses against the Muslim Uyghur population of the ancient Western Chinese deserts (a region full of Indo-European undertones which meshes well with the Manifest Destiny in Dugin’s Eurasianism ideology. Think about the Nazis searching for their “origins” in the Far East). From a peaceful standpoint, particularly for a war-weary United States and Europe, it seems good on the surface, but this view doesn’t take into account the other factors relating to our changing world. These factors include the fact that Russia is close with Israel; Russia has ties to China, and all three nations have ties to the Chinese Belt-and-Road Initiative, i.e., New Silk Road Project.

In this next section before I go on, I assure you that I am not antisemitic. I don’t think the “Jews run everything”. From an American perspective, especially one birthed within the twentieth-century, the American Jewish community is an important cultural asset, which was contributed to the arts, entertainment, Civil Rights, technology, medicine, and politics. I grew up with a fond appreciation and Americana relating to Jewish America. I find Holocaust denial repulsive. Most are just like everyone else just trying to live their lives.

Yet, it is my personal belief that the Israeli government under Netanyahu did most of the hacking to the US political system, even if it were just social media campaigns to support Trump, though China and Russia also participated for their own personal interests. It’s the game. The Israelis were spared the US media backlash, because the US media has historically kept internal Israeli politics out of the American frame of sight, despite the loyalty to Israel through movements such as Christian Evangelicalism. The US seems to value this relationship based on cultural and political bonds, yet, Israel as a sovereign state committed to self-determination, continuity of its borders, and expansion of its borders to the Biblical Kingdom of David. The Israelis, or rather elements of the Israeli state, seem to be looking more Eastward for future prospects. We have to realize that many Israelis and US Jews are of Eastern European descent, largely from areas such as the old Pale Settlements in modern day Poland, Ukraine, the Baltic Region, and Russia. With Israel strategically located closer to Russia, it seems the “Defenders of the Holy Land” is a card that factions of the Israeli Knesset are willing to pull from the USA and bestow upon the Orthodox Imperium of the Russia sphere. We also have to realize that Putin is close with the Chabad community, and in it could be argued that the Russian mob, is in effect also, or partially connected to the Jewish mob based out of Russia.

Further, Israel’s future economic ties with China are invaluable. The little-known Russia state of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, that was founded by Joseph Stalin in Russia’s far-east is strategically located next to a corridor of the Belt and Road Initiative. There’s money to be made in expanded international commerce between West and East. If Israel, China, and Russia were to unite, it would be a strong military pact of nuclear powers encircling the resource rich and black-market crucial areas of Eurasia. Russia was singled out as the more politically viable option, because A) The United States values the Israel relationship for both cultural and strategic reasons, B) China posses the most military and economic risks to the United States, and C) Russia wants to restore itself to a major world-player and has “stunted” on the US and West.

Wherever the Americans are, the Russians are right behind to provide an alternate public statement, insinuating constant US aggression. From the late GW Bush Era through the Obama Era, the Russian government has been unfolding a type of strategic multi-platformed chess strategy. I mean Putin is into Judo and the martial arts. Knocking you off course and using your momentum against you. Letting you overexert and exhaust your resources, just to kick you down, and stand over you, with a smug smirk. We’ve seen the Georgian-Russian conflict regarding South Ossetia; the annexation of Crimea; the Sochi Winter Olympics as a showcase of Putin’s New Russia; the shutting off of gas pipelines to Europe; the spreading of Soft-Power such as purchases of Western real-estate, sport teams, and even, good ole Pabst Blue Ribbon. We’ve also seen the establishment of more pipelines with Germany and Turkey, but also propaganda campaigns ranging from giving Eric Snowden safe-haven as the NSA was blasted for the collection of meta-data,

Then we have the online “Chaos Magick” campaign which has seen parts of the Alternative Conservative movement become…compromised. By Chaos Magick, I don’t mean the Occult, though Dugin is inspired by the Occult, but I mean postmodern warfare: meme campaigns, anti-West conspiracy theories, bloggers, YouTubers, etc. From a youth perspective, there’s an easy gateway even in black and death metal circles, since the paganism and atheistic undertones feeds back into a type of Blood-and-Soil politics. I’m not calling out these genres, because honestly, I enjoy some metal music, and not all, or most of it is racist.

Anyways, pundits such as Lauren Southern, formerly of Rebel Media, went to Russia to interview Dugin. RedIce’s founder, Henrik Palmgren’s wife, Laura Lokteff, is of Russian descent. Richard Spencer’s wife, Nina Kouprianova, is of Russian descent, though their marriage ended, which is public record. Even Jay Dyer, whom one could call a conspiracy theorist, though I enjoy some of his works and to his credit, he is only reading the books of others (though we all have our own bias and spin), actually converted to Orthodoxy and has appeared on RedIceTV. In Mr. Dyer’s in-depth analysis of geopolitical history, I do notice that when he projects forward it’s arguably pro-Russian. I’m not sure what to make of the guy. It is not a crime to be these things at all, yet, he converted to Orthodoxy (which is not a crime), but never shows both sides of the larger debate and keeps the focus on the “degenerate West”, but rarely presents an objective Russian analysis. I repeat, I have no issue with Russia. I’m not insinuating that Russian people are inherently bigoted, but there is a specific movement within the United States with certain links to Russia.

Yet, to end this, The “Deep State” in my personable view was disappointed at Israeli hacks, but valuing that Israeli relationship it was easier to call out the Russian hacks, since, well, Russia poses a military risk, whereas Israel is still a partner, though it’s free to court new suitors. Yet, by calling out the Russian hacks and beginning an investigation, the general public would eventually come to the Israel sources, without the US government having to make an official statement.
