What western leaders left us ill-prepared for by denying since Sept 11, 2001

Twenty years since the Islamist attacks of September 11th, how aware are we of "political Islam's" quest for the West - and the risk of importing thousands of Muslim Afghani fighters into America?

America dives, Islam thrives.  
(FrontPage Magazine, Sept 10, 2021)
On 9/11, the world was shown, in one horrific, indelible image, precisely what Islam is all about. Today, to write the previous sentence is to be guilty of Islamophobia. How did that come to be?

It began in the days after 9/11 itself, when George W. Bush - by repeatedly insisting that the cause of the jihadists had nothing to do with Islam - effectively ruled out of bounds any criticism of that religion, or any honest education and open discussion about it. Instead, Bush - who had gotten it into his head that all religions are basically good, and who was manipulated by advisors who wanted to project American power in a part of the world about which they knew very little - used 9/11 as an excuse to rein in Americans’ civil liberties and go nation-building abroad. It was a massive folly, doomed to failure. Why doomed? Because Islam is utterly irreconcilable with American-style freedom and incapable of reform, at least not without a far more aggressive effort than America was willing to commit to. Unlike America, moreover, Islam has a long memory. Muslims recall their forebears’ foiled attempts to conquer the Christian West at Tours in 732 and Vienna in 1683; the attacks of 9/11 were part of a history of such actions that goes back to Islam’s earliest days. Yet few Westerners know about this history or are aware that 9/11 was part of it.

"One hundred Afghan evacuees flagged for possible terror ties: report"
by Kyle Morris. Fox News.com Sept 3, 2021

Two of the flagged Afghans are being sent to Kosovo for further review amid security concerns

An estimated 100 Afghan refugees from Afghanistan to the United States have been flagged for potential ties to terrorist organizations, including the Taliban, according to a new report.

Of more than 30,000 evacuees from Afghanistan to the U.S., about 10,000 needed additional screening as of Friday," NBC News reported, citing two sources familiar with evacuation efforts. "And of those about 100 were flagged for possible ties to the Taliban or terror groups."

The report stated that two of the flagged Afghans "raised enough concern for additional review" and are being sent to Kosovo for further review amid security concerns.

Many of the fighting-trained Afghani that Pres. Biden couldn't (or won't) properly vette for terror-ties in Afghanistan-vicinity are still ripe for Islamist activism and even jihadism inside of America.

'Californians, vote YES for Larry Elder to restore liberty from Islamo-Maoists' - Iranian, human-rights educator

B.L.M. cofounder, Cullors, boasted about movement's
Marxist revolutionary objective. She and Melina Abdullah,
a Black Muslim revolutionary, both live in Los Angeles
Larry Elder, the longtime, outspoken debunker of Democrats' white-scapegoating via black-leftists, recognized revolutionary forces facilitating the Black Lives Matter riots during Democrat-governors-and-mayors' hyper-imposed, societal-restrictions America.

justice for the regime-slaying of brother, Akbar

Fifteen years ago,
two freedom-seeking brothers of Iranian woman, Nasrin Mohammedi (Akbar and Manoucher) were tortured by the Islamist regime for protesting its tyranny - a dynamic which the governance of today's Democratic Party leaders echoes eerily for Nasrin.  

Around Memorial Day 2021, prior to declaring his candidacy for the California gubernatorial recall election, Mr. Elder attended the doctoral thesis-acceptance reception for
the now
Iranian-asylee / human-rights advocate, renamed Dr. Nasrin Parsian, Ed.D. 

Mr. Elder stands with Dr. Parsian in this video
to explains why he feels it vital for the West to learn from dissident Iranian voices in this Democrat-ushered era of Sino/Islamist Marxist  imperialism across the globe.


Guest author article by Iranian-Californian, Dr. Nasrin Parsian:

Larry Elder is a front runner in the Recall Election race to succeed Gavin Newsom as governor of California (Singh, 2021).
Larry Elder speaks about Iranian imperialism against
America and Israel at Nasrin Parsian reception

Larry Elder switched to the Republican Party in 2003. Mr. Elder came along after months of refusal of the Republican Party to recognize him as a candidate.

The Democratic Party of governor, Gavin Newsom, endeavor to smear Mr. Elder as an extremist. They allege that his reign would be a challenge to the progressive movement in California and America. 

Mr. Newsom recounted Elder’s statements to argue “he’s even more extreme than Trump in many respects.” Elder said “Newsom is an "elite dictator" who "abused power" during the pandemic” (White & Marinucci, 2021).

While making a campaign stop in Venice Beach yesterday, a white Democrat woman clad in a gorilla-mask, flung a raw egg in an attempt to strike Mr. Elder.

On Monday, Melina Abdullah, the Farrakhan-praising, Black-Muslim co-founder of Black Lives Matter attempted to smear Mr. Elder as "A black face on white supremacy.” (Nightingale, 2021).

Palestinian nationalism movement. George Floyd as rebel icon on W. Bank wall with Israel

Mr. Elder is a decent man with peaceful mind who is opposes gun control and any minimum wage, believes climate change policies are not worth the cost. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (White & Marinucci, 2021).

During the reign of Gavin Newsom, there has been rapid increase in public disorder. Homelessness has reached every corner of the State (Eide, 2021).

In an interview question regarding homelessness and approach to housing, Mr. Elder explained that California housing has always been somewhat more expensive than in the rest of the country, because it has been a truly, great place to live.

But today, housing in California costs about 150% more than in the rest of the country. Fewer and fewer Californians can afford housing costs in their own state. Regulations and laws that benefit a select few have sent home prices soaring. I will repeal those perverse regulations.

One of the incumbent governor's campaign offers was to build 3.5 million new housing units by 2025. But where is the construction? We have builders eager to build for the large and growing population in California, but their hands are tied by unnecessary regulation.

Poor policy making in Sacramento has left our state ranking 49th in the union for the rate of construction. Why? Because, as is the case for gas prices, housing prices in California are being substantially and artificially inflated by meddling politicians in Sacramento. I (Larry Elder) will alleviate the housing crisis by letting the home builders build new homes!

The California College Republicans Chair says “I think that a lot of people were excited for the first time about Larry running.” (White & Marinucci, 2021)

Dr. Parsian concludes, "I believe that Larry Elder will be the governor California needs to restore balance to the state."

Early voting for the California Recall Election on Tuesday 14 September opens widely on Saturday 11 September. Find your nearest California polling place here.

Afghanistan: Biden's Benghazi? Op/Ed by Alan Bergstein

OpEd by Alan Bergstein, retired, Bronx middle school principal, residing in Boca Raton, Florida.
 
It's fitting to begin this piece with a request for our readers to offer a silent prayer for the souls of our 13 military heroes murdered in Kabul last week. May their souls rest in peace. These men and women, from all walks of life, embodied what America once stood for: Honor, loyalty and devotion to country. We fear these traits have been ripped from our legacy.

Names of those killed

By the time you read this column, the deadline for the removal of all Americans, military and civilian, together with the thousands of those Afghans who were loyal to our forces has already passed. And there is no doubt that an unknown number of the above have been left behind, amid the confusion, panic caused by the incompetence of our  brainless and spineless military and political leaders, who have insulted us by calmly repeating, over and over that they did as well as they could in that primitive land. 
 
These brazen liars who all read from the same script, White House truth fabricators, Jen Psaki, Anthony Blinken, Jake Sullivan, John Kirby, their counterpart cowardly military midgets, Mark Milley and Lloyd Austin, should all be whisked out of their cozy offices and dropped into the Taliban cesspool of hell to get their just desserts for their involvement in pushing the acts of criminal disloyalty to this country that borders on treason. 
 
What are the odds that a Congressional investigation will ever be mounted to discover who was behind the pathetic panicked retreat from Afghanistan? No way! They're too busy digging into the "January 6th Conspiracy."
 
We'll sadly say, with all honesty, that although President Biden is obviously suffering from some mental/judgment impairment, he calls the shots. He is the Commander in Chief of all of our armed forces and what orders he gives, must be carried out. As he told us last week, "The buck stops here!" But that's not the best of news for us to hear at this time. Former Secretary of Defense, under Obama/Biden, Robert Gates, has voiced repeatedly, "I think he (Biden) has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades." This statement has so far hit a home run for accuracy. 
 
Look at the Biden caused chaos at our southern border, his re-entry into the Paris Accords, cozying up to Hamas and making us once again energy dependent on our enemies. And with nearly three and a half years left in his term to look forward to, that's indeed scary. Joe, as VP, was against the assassination of Osama bin Laden. He's not a man of character. He has lied about his achievements and plagiarized the words of others in his speeches. But now he sits as leader of the free world. How was that made possible?
 
And he's criminally crashed in Afghanistan. Biden robotically read to us that he has extracted a promise from the Taliban that this group of primitive savages will guarantee the safe exodus of left behind Americans and those Afghans who formerly worked with us, who wish to leave that war ravaged land. He believes them. Is he familiar with the term, "Taqqiya," a Koranic order that requires Muslims to lie to infidels when dealing with them? Evidently not. Arafat used that with President Clinton when signing the Oslo Accords and the Mullahs of Iran pulled he same stunt with Obama with the Iran Nuclear Deal. 
 
Biden has bought another bridge over the East River. A massive human disaster looms. No one in authority, not even Biden himself has addressed the major concern of many that the women of Afghanistan, under the Taliban will once again be treated as less-thans. When we took over in 2001, women were given the freedom to doff their burkas, go to school and learn to read and write, to become professionals, to have human rights. But now they will be forcibly returned to the Islamic dark ages. But where is the American women's movement on this? Where is Linda Sarsour, herself an American Muslim, who led marches against President Trump, accusing him of being a woman abuser? Where are the voices of Congresswomen Omar, Tlaib, AOC and Pressley, the Gang of Four, to warn the Taliban not to revert to the rape, beating and humiliation of their women? Not a word. Should they not know better?
 
We've always believed in he superiority of the American military leadership. Our generals and admirals were the bravest and finest. So how did none of them speak up publicly to oppose the order to first pull out our troops from Afghanistan and then, without military protection, follow up by evacuating our own (defenseless) civilians and Afghan allies? What buck private would simply hand over 83 billion $ of our most modern weapons to our enemy? And who among our military leaders nodded in approval when the highly fortified and secure Bagram airbase was turned over to the Taliban, leaving us the use of the single runway, indefensible civilian airport located smack in the middle of Kubal? Have our be-medaled military leaders suddenly become "yes men" for Biden? Have they sacrificed their honor and loyalty and pledges to their country in order to gain future promotions or jobs in the military/industrial complex? Are they too busy transforming our warriors into a "woke" fighting force? Are not our enemies in Russia, China, Iran and North Korea, licking their lips, not fearing our ability to ward off any of their aggressions in the future? Israel, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan will now feel the heat. Their futures are bleak.
 
A dark cloud has formed over our country with this fiasco unfolding in Afghanistan. Sadly, our nation has sunk to a near low. We're leaderless. Nationally we are at one another's throats. Blacks against whites, have-nots versus haves, our school systems in shambles, the Chinese Virus crippling every industry, no longer energy independent, Congress bankrupting the nation and our southern border wide open to one and all. But, nevertheless, we pray that the (Hebrew) New Year will bring us all a glimmer of hope for the future. So, to one and all, take a deep breath, with or without a mask.

"The Great Collapse" by Jean-David Benichou

by Jean-David Benichou, President, ElNet France  (Translated from original French)

The decision of the
Court of Cassation sinks the foundations of the French Republic.

The decision that concludes that the murderer of Sarah Halimi, a mother of 3 children, an exemplary citizen, in her sixties, murdered in the greatest violence, because she was Jewish, by a black Muslim, thirty years old, a multi-recidivist, idle, inveterate consumer of cannabis since the age of 16, on the grounds of an acute delirious crisis, alters the founding principles of our country , starting with the principle of equality.

Equality?

This promise that ornate the pediment of our institutions, it is that of the equality of all the citizens in face of the law. Why is this first principle threatened in its foundation? Well, because it is enough to consider a reverse scenario. A black mother, Muslim, exemplary, savagely murdered by a white Catholic in his thirties, often condemned, unemployed, drug addicted since his adolescence and who kills with the cry of "Jesus is our savior, I killed the Evil One". This horrible crime, which would have made millions of French people take to the streets in revolt against racial violence, committed in the name of a perverted faith, a crime with an odious colonial flavor, of a blond man on a brunette, of a Catholic on a Muslim woman, this crime, would it have left the choice to the supreme magistrates , to say that in law, well no, this murderer is not criminally responsible because he was a victim of an acute delirious state at the time of committing the act?

Sarah Halimi  and alleged murderer, Kobili Traore

Everyone will make their own opinion, but it is plausible to believe that in such a case, facing the risk of the nation's conflagration, the judges would not have taken the decision to analyze the law restrictively. They would have, rightly, interpreted the law to make it conform to its essential objective of maintaining peace and civil order and would have said, logically, that the deliberate use of drugs cannot be a mitigating circumstance because it deliberately causes an alteration of the discernment, and that of course, this man must be judged for his crime and condemned by a popular jury.

Freedom?

There is only public freedom because there is an implacable justice that is imposed on all.

The right to life is inseparable from the condemnation of homicide. This was not the case for a long time when the law of the strongest prevailed and the weakest were exterminated.

Murder is even the only reason why the law has long given justice the right to condemn to the death penalty. Its abolition has been replaced by a very long period of deprivation of liberty, sometimes until the death of the condemned.

But when the perpetrator of an established anti-Semitic crime escapes judgment for a reason whose basis is hidden in the meanders of the law's unspoken words, when high magistrates lose themselves in the exegesis of the Letter to the detriment of the Spirit, then we witness the collapse of that other republican looter who bears the name of Freedom.

For how can we prohibit when we no longer sanction? How can we guarantee public liberties if we absolve the most despicable criminals of their responsibility? And above all, if drug use is now a mitigating circumstance, how many retrials can we expect?

Is that Fraternity?

Our country is going through its most serious identity crisis. The 55,000 cathedrals, churches and priorities of France are emptying, while the 3000 mosques are overflowing and the 300 synagogues are depopulating.

Instead, we carry in our hands digital temples that level the culture with stories, destroy the critical spirit, abolish the nuance and atrophy the curiosity. When science becomes a conspiracy and a conspiracy a revealed truth, when belief prevails over knowledge, is it any wonder that this Brotherhood explodes, that a man kills his neighbor because he sees at his place symbols contrary to his own faith, that a hysterical man beheads a professor and that a murderer is declared irresponsible because he was stoned during his crime?

What a tragedy to see the resurgence of obscurantism in the land of enlightenment.

President Emmanuel Macron reacted with celerity. Taking note of the judgment and its unbearable consequences, he asked the Minister of Justice to undertake without delaying a text to reform the legal status of criminal irresponsibility. It should be recalled in this look that on January 8, 2020, Senator Nathalie Goulet had already filed a bill in this sense ...

In the absence of bringing the family of the deceased a reparative trial, may this legislative change bear the name of Sarah Halimi so that we never forget that the ultimate objective of the law is to protect the weak and the minorities by depriving the strong and the majorities of any impunity.

For it is the determining condition for society to live in freedom, equality and fraternity and for the foundation of the Republic to remain solid."

A.D.L. exec, Greenblatt's smear to fire Tucker Carlson blows-back; Republican Jews call to fire HIM & return agency to battling anti-Semitism

Mark Levin calls to replace ADL boss for Democrat-
politicizing of the agency, which imperils Jewish people
Radio host, Mark Levin and Dov Hikind (founder of Americans Against anti-Semitism) came to the aid of Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, accusing A.D.L's Jonathan Greenblatt for repurposing the anti-Semitism-combating organization - to serve as hatchet-man for Democratic Party (and his former boss, ex-Pres. Barack Obama) whom Mr. Levin claims is anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.

Mr. Hikind exposed the situation in his video on the subject. "Ever since a member of the Obama administration, Jonathan Greenblatt took over as leader of the ADL, their stance on racism and anti-Semitism has been politicized. The latest example is Greenblatt's call to oust the highly popular, conservative voice, Tucker Carlson. His crime (according to Greenblatt)? Using the word "replacement" when describing Democratic efforts to shift the electorate in their favor. Yes, there is a white-supremacist conspiracy-theory called "the great replacement" but that's about minority-races replacing the white race. Tucker Carlson spoke about non-citizens being brought in large numbers so they dilute the voting power of all citizens regardless of color. 

Mr. Greenblatt's attack on Tucker is nothing but a politicized witch-hunt - meant to neutralize another prominent conservative."


Mr. Greenblatt appeared on CNN's "Reliable Sources" with Brian Stelter to allege Tucker Carlson's remarks about "replacement" theory were a dog-whistle to white supremacists. Greenblatt called for Carlson's firing in an ADL letter to Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott on April 9, 2021.

Transcript from Mark Levin radio program where he excoriates Greenblatt and calls for his dismissal: April 12, 2021

0:04  "So the head of the anti-Defamation League, who is a leftist, who served on the Obama White House staff - who was a disastrous appointee to that position - accused Tucker Carlson essentially of either being a white supremacist or repeating far- right, white supremacist language. They called for his immediate removal by Fox News. Immediate removal. So I feel compelled -  and he's not the only one. There's another group that came out to the piling- on it started. I don't know Tucker well. But I know a sleazy CEO at the anti-Defamation League when I see one.

0:55  What Tucker Carlson said about the Democrats trying to influence the demographics in this country so that they can create more Democrat voters is a fact - is a fact! And if Mr. Anti-Defamation League is worried about anti-Semitism, he should have looked at his former boss, Barack Obama, and the men he surrounded himself with - (Rashid) Khalidi, among others.

Mark Levin Show audio player

1:28  The most anti-Israel president in the history of the State of Israel. And I accused Obama, at the time, of being an anti-Semite more than once - and I still believe he is! The fact that secular Jews are self-hating Jews, in my humble opinion, back people who are hostile to the State of Israel and hostile to the Jewish community is a problem. Like the mayor of New York, targeting Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. Like the governor of New York, targeting Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn. While Black Lives Matter, and Antifa, and other Marxist organizations are marching around (without masks)  attacking cops, attacking innocent civilians, burning, looting. While the Orthodox Jews are trying to have funerals and weddings, and celebrate various holidays - that should tell you all you need to know. So immediately this this buffoon, this lowlife, Brian Stelter, brings this clown Greenblatt on his program, when he further smears Tucker Carlson.

2:40  And so they try to bring all these parallels that aren't parallels at all. They aren't parallels at all. That Carlson's comments echo the "great replacement" of the largely white populations in the Western countries with non-white immigrants. You know, it's an amazing thing . . . the Democrats Obama used to say this (and others, Biden too)  that by 2044, thereabouts, white people will be the minority, whereas minorities will be in the majority collectively. They're the ones who keep talking about this.

3:20  There is no rational explanation for what's going on on the southern border. Except for the fact that the Democrats want more and more people to come into this country, eventually give them amnesty, legalization, citizenship, because I can assure you if people coming into this country were voting two-thirds or three-fourths Republican, they (the Democrats) would be the first to have a wall. The widest, tallest wall on the face of the earth.

3:50  Tucker Carlson is not talking about a "replacement theory" (a white supremacists' tenet, we're told) that "the white race is endangered by a rising tide of non-whites," writes  Greenblatt.  What we're talking about, Greenblatt, you left-wing kook, is what you're DOING!  Is what you are doing!  And if people actually point it out - if people actually mention it, then they must be part of the Klan. They must be part of the neo-nazi movement. Or they're just part of the "systemically white-racist" movement.

4:35  The vast majority of the American people oppose what's going on on the southern border today, including the vast majority of minorities, including the vast majority majority of Latino Americans living in these communities.  Including one of the congressman who represents one of these communities. Greenblatt doesn't live down there. His ass is in New York!

5:00  That's a fact. our immigration laws are being violated. What's going on in the southern border is inhumane at the hands of Joe Biden and his party. Little girls are being raped, drug kingpins are making a fortune. We've got more fentanyl crossing the border than any time in our history. Greenblatt doesn't talk about any of that, because it is Biden in the democrat party or mistreating around people. It is they are doing it and it's fine with his early racist past in the 1970s.

5:42  So they they try to, you see, they try to do their Alinsky tactics on a guy like Carlson. Because they truly are of that mindset - this neo-Marxist mindset I've been talking about. Target somebody, personalize it. And that's exactly what they're trying to do.

6:04  "How dare you speak up about what's going on on the southern border? How dare you speak up about what the Democrats are doing and what the media are doing? Brian Stelter never moved his fat ass to the (south border) southern border to see what's going on. He would never, never get out of a cafe in Manhattan to see what's going on.

6:31  Everybody knows Tucker Carlson is no Klansmen or white supremacist or neo-nazi. So you see the viciousness of the hard Left. And I am calling on the the Anti Defamation League to fire Jonathan Greenblatt!  He has brought his left-wing, kook, Obama politics to the Anti Defamation League! He's undermining their job - which is to call out true anti-Semitism! Not as some free-wheeling commentator for CNN and MSNBC. Absolutely outrageous!  

7:16  Meanwhile, Joe Biden actually doesn't even care what the hell is going on on the southern border, but this is what they do on the Left, you see? President (Trump) of the United States -  the most pro-Israel president since Israel has been in existence. Has (an Orthodox) Jewish daughter, son in law and grandchildren, and they paint HIM to be an anti-Semite! Who do you think this (Greenblatt) jerk voted for Biden, and Biden has actually surrounded himself with anti Semites!  Biden's policies with Iran and the Palestinians are all anti-Israel!  He's got one kook after another advising him. But this jerk Greenblatt doesn't say a word about that! Because they're HIS friends! This jerk Greenblatt sits on his mouth while the Iranians are running wild, getting support from the United States for the back door. This jerk says nothing while the Palestinians are going to get money without any obligation to not use it for terrorism! That's Greenblatt who needs to resign! Greenblatt!

8:29  And what's this other group? Hold on here, let me - there's so many left wing groups I'd say what's this other group here? Let's say (give me a second). Oh, then we get a write up from The Intelligencer, the national, New York Magazine - another crap, left wing magazine. Jonathan Chait - another a-hole, quite frankly. When Nazis marched in Charlottesville in 2017 they chanted, "You will not replace us." And some more clarifying Jews will not replace us."  The terrorists who gunned down . . . and he goes on. So in other words, Tucker Carlson is like the Nazis, and the Klansmen in Charlotte. Now this creep, Jonathan Chait knows that's not true. There's not any evidence whatsoever in  Carlson's background - nothing! Nothing. But this guy's a punk! He never speaks up against the anti-Israel policies of his OWN party! Tommy, did he demand the resignation of (Rep. Rashida) Talib? Did he demand the resignation of (Rep. Ilhan) Omar? Did he demand the resignation of (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) A.O.C. and the other, anti-Semite Jew haters in the Democrat party? Not once! Not once!"

Dr. Charles Jacobs, president of Americans for Peace and Tolerance in Boston, discusses whether liberal, Jewish leaders affinity for the (now leftist-hijacked) Democratic Party (and enmity against "Trump'ers" and Republicans) inhibits them from seriously defending Jewish people against anti-Semitism from the Left - and among the Democratic Party. 



Dr. Jacobs references an occasion where he felt the A.D.L. he called-in, dropped-the-ball instead of challenging new anti-Jewish curriculum in a liberal, suburban Boston school district. He posits how the ADL, today under Mr. Greenblatt, endangers Jews by choosing to dwell on white-supremacist anti-Semitism while refraining from confronting Black and Muslim anti-Semitism. Dr. Jacobs joins the calls for Mr. Greenblatt to be replaced.

Soviet-whistleblower, Ion Mihai Pacepa, 92, wrote the book on Disinformation: Recognized Democrat abuse of it domestically

Romanian intel liason to KGB, Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa
The passing of Ion Mihai Pacepa, 92 an authentic, Communist practitioner of the "disinformation" (which Democrat gov't and social-media officials create, but divert to cancel critics). 
 
"Death of a Defector: Ion Mihai Pacepa, Rest in Peace" by Paul Kengor

A leading Cold War defector who exposed communist disinformation from a unique vantage point. Naturally, liberals preferred to ignore him. By Paul Kengor (published in American Spectator Feb 24, 2021).

On February 14, 2021, the world quietly lost one of the most intriguing, enduring figures of the Cold War. He was Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, 92, the highest-ranking Soviet Bloc official ever to defect to the United States.

Throughout the 1970s, Pacepa had been arguably the top official in communist Romania, behind only the insane and vicious dictator Nicolae Ceaușescu. He served Ceaușescu in numerous capacities, including as intelligence chief and liaison between the brutal Securitate and the KGB. He knew where bodies were buried.

After yet another request by Romanian goons to bloody his hands, Pacepa had enough. One day in the summer of 1978, he slipped into the U.S. embassy in West Berlin while on routine business for the Romanian madman who was his boss. He said he wanted to defect. He was hustled out in a late-night flight to the United States — a country he came to love.

Gen. Pacepa revealed how KGB fomented anti-Israelism
to exploit militant Islamism as their political tool
“It was noon when the U.S. military plane bringing me to freedom landed at the U.S. presidential airport inside Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington, D.C.,” he later told our mutual friend David Kupelian. “It was a glorious, sunny day outside…. I had an overwhelming desire to dance around in a jig all by myself. I was a free man! I was in America! The joy of finally becoming part of this magnanimous land of liberty, where nothing was impossible, was surpassed only by the joy of simply being alive.” He continued, “On that memorable day of July 28, 1978, when I became a free man, I fell to my knees and I prayed out loud for the first time in more than a quarter of a century. It took me a while. It was not easy to find the right words to express my great joy and thanks to the good Lord. In the end, all that I asked for was forgiveness for my past, freedom for my daughter and strength for my new life.”

Forgiveness and freedom. And yet, Pacepa was never totally free. He was a wanted man, hunted by the Romanian government.

Once in the United States, Pacepa lived in undisclosed locations, dodging a $2 million bounty placed on his head by his homeland. Communists officials were enraged when Pacepa in 1987 published (via Regnery) his shocking memoir of the Ceausescu era: Red Horizons: The True Story of Nicolae & Elena Ceausescu’s Crimes, Lifestyle, and Corruption. (The book was reviewed with highest praise by Michael Ledeen in the April 1988 issue of The American Spectator.) Hit squads were dispatched to assassinate him. They never found him. And ironically, Pacepa’s grisly account of Nicolae and his equally cruel and crazy wife Elena would be used as evidence for their conviction and execution by a firing squad of Romanian citizens on Christmas Day 1989.

Pacepa long outlived the Ceaușescu menace. Now, over four decades after the brutal regime began targeting him, Pacepa’s life has ended. He died at the age of 92, a victim of COVID-19.

I never had the pleasure of directly meeting Pacepa, given that he was always in hiding, though we emailed frequently for years. He went by the name “Mike,” the Anglicized version of “Mihai.” He had at least two aliases that would pop up sometimes when I got emails from him. His email address was cryptic, starting with an upper-case letter and followed by seven numbers and then @aol.com. I’m tempted to share the email address here publicly, but doing so would offer no great value. Besides, I never had permission from him to share his email address publicly.



I often got his emails in response to my articles here at The American Spectator, of which he was an avid reader. He and I even co-authored a piece, “Obama’s Sword and Shield,” for The American Spectator in May 2013 (he also did a piece for this magazine in June 2009). Pacepa was a fan of this publication.

I believe Pacepa first reached out to me in 2010, when I published my Cold War tome, DupesPacepa was cited a number of times, particularly for his disturbing insights into how easily communist officials were able to manipulate gullible progressives in the West. That was a subject that troubled and perplexed Pacepa; it fascinated him but also nagged at him. He had seen it from the Truman years through Vietnam and still into the 21st century.

“They were like putty in our hands,” said Pacepa of the ability of Western liberals to be duped by communists, from the “strong leftist movements [in Western Europe] that we secretly financed” to the vast amounts of disinformation cooked up and spoon-fed to Western liberals who gobbled it up.

Consider Vietnam: “During the Vietnam War,” said Pacepa, “we spread vitriolic stories around the world, pretending that America’s presidents sent Genghis Khan-style barbarian soldiers to Vietnam who raped at random, taped electrical wires to human genitals, cut off limbs, blew up bodies and razed entire villages. Those weren’t facts. They were our tales.” (Recall a young John Kerry’s 1971 Senate testimony.) They were lies. Nonetheless, said Pacepa, millions of Americans “ended up being convinced their own president, not communism, was the enemy.”

According to Pacepa, it was the odious Yuri Andropov, then head of the KGB, who conceived this dezinformatsiya campaign — that is, disinformation campaign — against the United States. The Soviets devoted exorbitant spending to that cause. “Vietnam,” Andropov told Pacepa, had been “our most significant success.”

Pacepa read my book and was very pleased to see that I had focused upon what he judged one of the most significant but under-reported and least understood phenomena of our times: the cynical but remarkable power of disinformation.

In fact, it turned out that he was writing a book on precisely that subject and by that very name: Disinformation. He and co-author Ron Rychlak published the book in 2013 through WND Press, and they asked me to write the foreword (former CIA director James Woolsey wrote the introduction). It was a landmark book that everyone ought to read. It will indelibly impact the way you view history and current affairs.

That groundbreaking book exposed the KGB disinformation schemes against figures like Pope Pius XII (the smearing of Pius XII as “Hitler’s Pope” was begun as a mass Soviet disinformation campaign launched by a Radio Moscow broadcast in 1945) and Cardinals Stepinac and Mindszenty and Wyszyński, as well as the duplicity of groups like the World Peace Council and World Council of Churches. 

The material on the Soviet promulgation of the insidious Protocols of the Elders of Zion conspiracy is an awakening. 
The authors chronicled Andropov’s anti-Zionism campaign, support of Islamic terrorism, and promotion of virulent anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism among Middle East Arabs.

By 1978, the Soviet bloc planted some 4,000 agents of influence in the Islamic world, armed with hundreds of thousands of copies of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion (and military weapons). Militant, atheistic communism sought a handmaiden in militant, jihadist Islam, with extremist Muslims exploited by Soviet manipulators. They promulgated not only acts of terrorism but egregious acts of “diplomacy” like the infamous UN Resolution 3379 declaring Zionism a form of racism.

Pacepa revealed how many vicious myths created by communists have been unwittingly adopted by mainstream historians and journalists. He said the very handbook on Soviet/communist dezinformatsiya opened with this in capital letters: “IF YOU ARE GOOD AT DISINFORMATION, YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING.”

Pacepa would see these patterns in modern American “journalism,” though it wasn’t always clear if duped American journalists were wittingly or unwittingly spreading disinformation (or “fake news,” to use a modern term). Often, they simply believed what they wanted to believe — just as the Kremlin knew they would.

Beyond Disinformation, Pacepa wrote a number of fascinating works, including a remarkable 2007 book on the Kennedy assassination, titled Programmed to Kill: Lee Harvey Oswald, the Soviet KGB, and the Kennedy Assassination. Pacepa believed that the Soviets were involved in early steps leading toward or helping to precipitate the assassination. He argued that Oswald had been recruited by the KGB when he first entered the Soviet Union. Over the next two years, however, several things complicated the picture. By 1962, once Oswald was settled in Texas, Khrushchev (allegedly) changed his mind about killing Kennedy. Consequently, claims Pacepa, “the KGB tried to turn Oswald off.” It was too late.

"Disinformation" co-author, Ron Rychlak, presented this biography of Pacepa at the International Spy Museum in Washington, DC in January, 2014 (courtesy of World Net Daily):

For the record, this theory of Soviet involvement is disputed by Kennedy assassination investigators and by the Warren Commission, but this much we do know: Moscow did its damnedest to direct eyes of suspicion elsewhere. The Kremlin blamed the Kennedy shooting on (as Pacepa put it) “racists, the Ku Klux Klan, and Birchists.” Pacepa confirmed that the KGB had a thorough, ongoing disinformation campaign to blame the Kennedy assassination on domestic elements in the United States. He reported that on November 26, 1963, Soviet General Aleksandr Sakharovsky landed unannounced in Bucharest and met with Pacepa and other high-level members of Romanian intelligence and leadership. This was his first stop in a “blitz” tour of KGB “sister” services in the Communist Bloc. “From him,” recalled Pacepa, “we in the DIE [Romanian intelligence] learned that the KGB had already launched a worldwide disinformation operation aimed at diverting public attention away from Moscow in respect to the Kennedy assassination, and at framing the CIA as the culprit.” Nikita Khrushchev himself, said Sakharovsky, wanted it made clear to the sister services that “this was by far our first and most important task.” They circulated rumors that “the CIA was responsible for the crime” and that Lyndon Johnson and the “military-industrial complex” had been involved.

The effort would be called Operation Dragon. It became, said Pacepa, one of the most successful disinformation operations in contemporary history. Pacepa pointed to Hollywood film director Oliver Stone’s 1991 movie, JFK, which blamed the Kennedy assassination on a cabal that included the CIA, Lyndon Johnson, and the military-industrial complex. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards.

There are so many intriguing items like this from this intriguing figure that was Ion Mihai Pacepa. I could go on and on. One more item of interest to readers here:

The scourge that is Liberation Theology has rotten roots. Those roots go back not only to twisted Jesuit theologians in Latin America in the 1970s but, according to Pacepa, to the KGB. Pacepa went so far as to claim that Liberation Theology was created by the KGB. “The movement was born in the KGB,” stated Pacepa unequivocally, “and it had a KGB-invented name: Liberation Theology.” He said that “the birth of Liberation Theology” came from a 1960 “super-secret Party-State Dezinformatsiya [Disinformation] Program” approved by Aleksandr Shelepin, then-chairman of the KGB, and by Politburo member Aleksey Kirichenko, who coordinated the Communist Party’s international policies. The program “demanded that the KGB take secret control of the World Council of Churches,” which was based in Geneva, and use it “as cover for converting Liberation Theology into a South American revolutionary tool.”

Again, I could go on. The late Lt. Gen. Pacepa knew a lot.

Ion Mihai Pacepa died on February 14. Fittingly, he passed away at an undisclosed hospital in an undisclosed location somewhere in the United States. There was no official announcement.

The loss of Mike Pacepa is a loss for many, especially his beloved wife and family. It is also a loss for history and contemporary understanding of certain events. He shared with us gems of information and even disinformation. Perhaps most helpful of all, he warned us not only about what to believe but what not to believe.
