The Perestroika Deception

Have you read Sun Tzu? I'm guessing not.
Anatoliy Golitsyn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "In his book Wedge - The Secret War between the FBI and CIA (Knopf, 1994), Mark Riebling stated that of 194 predictions made in New Lies For Old, 139 had been fulfilled by 1993, 9 seemed 'clearly wrong', and the other 46 were 'not soon falsifiable'.[15]
According to Russian political scientist Yevgenia Albats, Golitsyn's book New Lies for Old claimed that 'as early as 1959, the KGB was working up a perestroika-type plot to manipulate foreign public opinion on a global scale. The plan was in a way inspired by the teachings of the sixth-century B.C. Chinese theoretician and military commander Sun Tsu, who said, 'I will force the enemy to take our strength for weakness, and our weakness for strength, and thus will turn his strength into weakness.' Albats argued that the KGB was the major beneficiary of political changes in Russia, and perhaps indeed directed Gorbachev. According to her, 'one thing is certain: perestroika opened the way for the KGB to advance toward the very heart of power [in Russia].'[16]. It has been said that Mikhail Gorbachev justified his new policies as a necessary step to 'hug Europe to death', and to 'evict the United States from Europe'. [17]"

The Real Margaret Sanger

A bit of history you just might have missed:
The Sinister Abortion Specter Rises for Midterm | NewsReal Blog: "If anyone is anti-poor, it isn’t pro-life Republicans, it is the leftists behind pro-abortion groups with their hidden eugenicist agendas. The founder of Planned Parenthood—Margaret Sanger—aligned herself with eugenicists and created The Negro Project in 1939 with the goal of exterminating the black population. A decade� before the Negro Project, the American Birth Control League had laid the groundwork for her in its establishment of a birth control clinic in Harlem"

The Transition

Federalist No. 10 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "It is natural to a republic to have only a small territory, otherwise it cannot long subsist. In a large republic there are men of large fortunes, and consequently of less moderation; there are trusts too great to be placed in any single subject; he has interest of his own; he soon begins to think that he may be happy, great and glorious, by oppressing his fellow citizens; and that he may raise himself to grandeur on the ruins of his country. In a large republic, the public good is sacrificed to a thousand views; it is subordinate to exceptions, and depends on accidents. In a small one, the interest of the public is easier perceived, better understood, and more within the reach of every citizen; abuses are of less extent, and of course are less protected.

Brutus points out that the Greek and Roman states envisioned by many Americans as model republics (as evidenced by the choice of many authors on both sides of the debate to take Roman monikers) were small. Brutus also points out that the expansion of these republics resulted in a transition from free government to tyranny.[10]"

The Train At The End Of The Tunnel

New Supply Floods U.S. Housing Market: "With permanently depressed wages, massive unemployment, the most over-supplied market in history, no personal savings, and an economy in the early stages of a Greater Depression, there is no “light at the end of the tunnel” here – not in five years; not in ten years.

If this nightmare already sounds as bad as it could possibly get, you’re wrong. I (and other commentators) have said for years that reckless U.S. money-printing by the Federal Reserve, and even more reckless fiscal policy from the U.S. government has made U.S. hyperinflation inevitable.

With the entire U.S. economy drowning in $60 trillion in total public/private debt (plus an additional $70 trillion in “unfunded liabilities”), there is no way to even service this mountain of debt with the U.S.’s (relatively) tiny $13-trillion economy. The U.S. government must drive the U.S. dollar down to near-zero – so that all these U.S. dollar-denominated debts “evaporate” with inflation. However, what also evaporates is the wealth of all Americans (or at least all wealth which has not previously been converted into gold and silver)."
