“Therefore I say that it is a narrow policy to suppose that this country or that is to be marked out as the eternal ally or the perpetual enemy of England. We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow."
– Henry John Temple, Lord Palmerston, English Statesman 1784-1865
“A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have.”
– Abraham Lincoln
“For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog, while, for many people in the West, it is still a living lion.”
- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“The goal of socialism is communism.”
– Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Yes, now America’s national interests are more in alignment with Russia than not. Especially when it comes to defeating radical Islamic Jihadism. Is that Overton Window shifting? Has the time come for Jerry Pournelle’s “CoDominium”?
Is it time for the USA and the Russian Republic to join forces and rule the world? Or at least work in concert to achieve those foreign policy goals they hold in common?
Back during the last three decades of the 20th century the Democrat Party was over-eager to make friends with the Communist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). They saw them as fellow Marxist travelers on the road to social justice. The Democrats claimed to live in terror that Republicans like President Reagan would go off half-cocked and initiate a nuclear war with the USSR. Now just some 26 years after the fall of the USSR it’s exactly the opposite, the Democrats are spoiling for war with the Soviet Union’s successor state, the non-Communist Russian Republic. WTF? This is incongruous to the point of being comical. The inspiration for an absurdist SNL or Monty Python skit. Nevertheless, the radical Leftists that dominate the Democrat Party today are deadly serious about the agenda they are pursuing: to destroy America. The Marxist Left doesn’t have permanent friends or permanent enemies either, but it does have eternal interests and goals. The major goals being to destroy free market Capitalism and along with it the American Republic as it exists today (THE leading Capitalist power) and remake it into their image of what it should be: a socialist oligarchy. Taking control of America’s wealth and resources, both natural and human, is a major step toward establishing a socialist world government. The world Communists were among the original Globalists. Their long standing anthem is "The Internationale” after all:
(“The International Ideal unites the Human Race!”
- Billy Bragg's Revised Lyrics for the Vancouver Folk Festival, 1989)
One thing the Left must be given credit for is their persistence. They never stop pushing; they never stop working to undermine and wear down their opposition. They have a true missionary complex. At the same time though they are very prone self-sabotage. Their policies are horribly inconsistent and spring mostly out of a desire to negate and abolish the current social order, rather than replace it with anything constructive. This gives us some reason to believe we can yet defeat them, even in spite of the damage they have done. People are growing weary of the chaos and PC oppression and are pushing back against the Left. Now that the Left has been thwarted in a major way by God-Emperor Trump’s victory their mask of compassion has slipped and more and more people have gotten a good look at the hate and lunacy beneath. One of the Progressive Left's advantages during the second half of the 20th Century WAS that mask of compassion. The fact that most people thought they meant well and weren’t as crazy, vengeful and destructive as they really are. For the last half-century the Left succeeded in blaming everything they were responsible for wrecking on the Right. So playing the blame-game yet they do.
“The more hysterical liberals become about Russia, the more your antennae should go up.”
“Historically, liberals show their manliness by demanding war with our friends and allies, while methodically undermining America's ability to fight the wars it's already in.”
“The No. 1 enemy of Western civilization today isn't non-communist Russia. It's Islam.”
“And who is a key ally in that fight? Russia has been dealing with these troublesome Muslims for centuries. It was Russian officials who tried in vain to warn our blind, incompetent government about the Boston Marathon bombers.”
“The left's hysteria about Russia isn't just an attempt to delegitimize Trump. It's the usual Christophobic fifth column rooting for the Islamization of the West.”
LET'S MAKE RUSSIA OUR SISTER COUNTRY!
