Yo Socialist Mama Blog Post New Entry

I am a survivor of socialism and I blog here whenever I feel like it, sharing the truth and insights of being a hostage to socialism for the first 18 years of my life and having the courage to escape it.

I have journeyed from behind The Iron Curtain to FREEDOM and I will never give it up! 

I write about my experiences, past and current, through my life, my eyes, my heart. I hope you find something that will resonate with you. If not now, maybe in the future.

On The Precipice of Purpose

Posted by Marina B on January 16, 2021 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I have big plans for January 20, 2021 and beyond.

 

First, I will remember the idiocy of the pink pussy mad-hatters from four years ago, the violent threats and hatred that befell on what could very well be, the last decent president USA has ever had.

I will remember how TDS overwhelmed the envious, the corrupt, the MSM-brainwashed, the institutionally indoctrinated of you and how despicably behaved, and how for four years you terrorized The President, his family, his supporters and anyone who disagreed with your line of hatred by flipping everything upside down, until you made a mockery out of US and The Truth.

I will sit with my morning coffee enjoying the final moments of FREEDOM this country gave me, a refugee from socialism, and I will thank the founders of the United States for the forty one years of freedom I enjoyed.

As of 11:59 am, I will completely disconnect from the useful idiocy that will be tyrannically installing itself in the WH.

I will follow the example and wisdom of Dr. Victor Frankl, an Austrian psychologist, who survived The Holocaust and wrote a book of his experiences in the concentration camp, and I will follow the Torah teachings that have been guarded by my people for millennia.

The Torah teaches that everything is a will of G-d and humans have the free will only to the extent of the free choices they make. Dr. Frankl, after observing and surviving the despicable atrocities, concluded that the way a prisoner imagined the future affected his longevity, and that it is essential to identify a purpose in life to feel positive about, and then immerse yourself into it imagining only that outcome.

Here’s what I will be imagining behind my 21st century virtual barbwire:

1) The Truth will Triumph.

2) Yours is only a temporary triumph, on a way to revelations that will follow your excesses and terror. The Truth always comes out. The Truth is absolute and facts, as they are revealed, will serve The Truth.

3) All the damage you can do to this wonderful country, and consequently to the world, which follows and relies on US leadership, is not going to impact my vision of the outcome, i.e. Triumph of The Truth.

4) As part of my survival, I will pretend that none of you are, and what becomes of you is wholly and totally inconsequential to me. I will not be sympathetic to your painful realizations, as one by one you will discover that what I’ve been warning you about was true and the knowledge I was trying to pass on to to you, was factual.

5) I will pay as much attention to you as you did to me, and show you the same “kindness” as you bestowed on me and mine, after you travel the full journey and are ready for a conversation on the level. I will only have a conversation like that after your full and complete admission of your error in judgment, and you full apology – not to me – to this glorious nation you are destroying and to The Trump Family – every single one of whom so bravely fought to preserve it, as The Republic she was planned, functioned since 1776 and was meant to forever.

 

If I live through this difficult time.

 

 

 

 

A Girl in a Fox Dress

Posted by Marina B on December 27, 2020 at 3:00 PM Comments comments (0)


Kiev 1966. I remember everything about that evening and the preparations that led to it with Mama making me a dress out of her old one, the color of ocher yellow, a dark and moody natural color of a forest fox. Some call it orange. Mama made me a trim out of her brown fox fur color. Just for that one night. But it is really a borderline red. Mama really loved me when she made me clothes when I was very young. As I got older and life became more challenging, I eventually learned to make them for myself. I never again felt quite like the shining star I was the evening I was the fox. In some ways, this may have been my moment of the end of innocence. I started realizing how difficult everything in our everyday life was soon after.

I remember playing the role of a sly shrewd animal and loving every moment. I remember the feel of the fox dress fabric, and the scent of the fur, the scared children awaiting their turn in the New Year show, and my happy starring role that lasted but a few minutes, but gave me joy for years. I remember my soft shoes and the room filled with rows of parents on children’s seats, applauding everything, even their children’s inabilities to retain and deliver a few lines. I had a big part and even Mama was impressed how finely I delivered all of my speeches.

A gorgeous tall New Year’s Tree, so beautifully decorated, was guarded at the snow-cotton-covered tree-stump by Snow Girl, a Russian folk character, who always assisted Grandpa Frost with presents. You cannot see him but his white cotton torso was surely standing to the other side of that tree-stump.

The portrait of Grandpa Lenin, everybody’s “sage, loving and caring leader” is on the wall in front of me, adorned by embroidered towel, an Ukrainian rushnik, just as the darn icons would have been before the Bolshevik Revolution.

To hell with god – that’s what we were being taught every day, every hour, in preparation for our role in the Soviet Socialist society.

The children were lauded as the most privileged and protected citizens of the USSR. We were certain that we were the best of the children in the world. The most deserving. The future was ours for the taking…

So many of our generation are dead now. Some died in Afghanistan. Some, during and after Chernobyl. Some die in Ukraine from poor medical care, like no help in hospitals for seniors at 50 or 55. Flu medications are not dispensed to seniors, for instance.

Some died from hardships during the post-perestroika era. Some were killed by profiteers and other modern day bandits.

Most became cynics and condemned the regime that raised us.

Many disbursed throughout the world.

The true communists amongst us did what they were programmed to do – they continue to spread the disease of Leninism-socialism to all odd places it has not yet infected. In many countries little girls like me have been reciting their poems during what should have been Christmas-time celebrations. They stare into Grandpa Lenin’s portraits to the applause of their Marxist parents too eager to deny god as the dogma of religious “opium for the masses” just as Lenin taught.

More than half a century later, from the shores of United States of America, I look at the innocent little girl I then was and pray to GOD that socialist takeover meets its death in 2020. I pray it will become COVID’s most deserving victim.

I pray that Christians will continue to be Christians and Jews – Jews, practicing their religions openly and proudly, without communist imposition of atheism or Islamists’ “convert or die” contamination.

The younger Americans and even my contemporaries know so little about history, they have allowed revisionism and thought control.

We are a week away from 2021 – I am hopeful!

I want Truth to prevail and preserve USA for the future generations of grateful immigrants like me and their well-informed descendants, who will erect beautiful Christmas Trees and light Hanukkah menorah candles every year, and live together in love and peace.

 

 

About The Privilege of Freedom

Posted by Marina B on December 19, 2020 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I don’t give a hoot about your skin color, religion or sexuality as long as you do not a) impose them on me or b) deny me full respect of mine!

In 7th grade, I was a mentally and emotionally abused teen, who despite all that was being dumped onto me by my parents, school and the entire Soviet Union, chose to be like the Decembrists and other period heroes I admired, a freethinker. I define freethinking as upholding that knowledge should be grounded in facts, scientific inquiry, and logic. Coincidentally, that is exactly what my teachers were teaching in class. In practice, however, I was told time and time again by my teachers, my mother and other relations to learn how to hide my true sentiments, ideas, thoughts or else! In sum, I was being taught to lie.

Everyone in the USSR lied as a matter of practical survival.

I loathed lying as it created and perpetuated a logical conflict to the facts I observed and of which I wrote in detail in My Life Through My Dresses – Growing Up Socialist. An incident with my 7th grade Russian Language and Lit teacher, Valentina Lazarevna Shilo, who I hear is now gone and I do not have to worry about using her real name, is as fresh in my mind’s eye as if it happened yesterday.

VLS was my homeroom teacher, and on several occasions when Mama was too verbally abusive in her intolerably cruel way, I ran off to VLS and slept over. I yearned for a mother figure, and to some extent, this Jewish teacher and mom of two young sons, provided me with minimal comfort of a dinner and conversation. I suppose that was why, out of her best intentions, she proceeded to instruct me on how to stop pursuing truth. “If you will not stop this truth-searching,” VLS forewarned me, “you will suffer all your life. No one wants the truth. You’ll be penalized for it.”

It was after that particular phrase that I stopped seeking refuge at her home, because I figured out that just like Mama, VLS was a broken soviet woman, repressed in her views, as every soviet citizen, but more so by being a Jew in Kiev, the Capital of Ukrainian Anti-Semitism.

I decided to remain true to my nature, keep my innate moral center, my ideals of what I should do and how, and so I have been true to the truth seeker in me. Not to hold myself as a perfect human, I erred all through my life, but I have tried my best to guard that 13-year-old truth seeker through all her life battles.

People forgot that Soviet Union, The USSR, was the first ‘socialist paradise’. After socialism failed there, the Soviets taught the Chinese, the Cubans, the Vietnamese, the North Koreans, multiple African nations and on and on and on how to create the society based on socialist-communist lies of Lenin, Marx and Engels and breed generations of useful idiots, just like Stalin commanded.

As the “conversation about privilege” has now taken a racist overtone, I keep hearing about the white privilege. It’s the same lie the socialists planted in Russia to create religion and class struggle, redistribute wealth and power. Same methods. Same tactical moves. Same words. Religion is being steadily replaced by this new divisive value system with cultural atheism, which is nothing new to this old girl who grew up on them in the USSR. “All people are brothers,” they said at public meetings, and went on to teach their kids to hate, for instance, Jews or other national minorities. Jews, actually, were hate for being “that other religion” most people could not even bring themselves up to speak of out loud. No religious practice was allowed for decades. We were JINOs – Jews In Name Only. Never stopped anti-Semites from anti-Semitting! We, the less than 1% of world population, the ever-persecuted vulnerable, yet defiant keepers of Hanukkah!

I am now moving on to the reason for this post - I am being cajoled into abstaining from truth by certain leaders of certain groups, who may be reading some of my social media posts, may not be comprehending the essence of my lifelong pursuits, may not even have used Google to learn that “useful idiot” is not to be interpreted as a literal “idiot”, yet they definitely are telling me and others under their care, that truth will be punished. “Play nice and fit in”, “don’t be an asshole,” “you will become an unwanted individual” and similar wisdoms are being dispensed in private rooms to hundreds just as BLM, George Floyd and anti-Trump ideology are being elevated to the Book of Genesis status and all invited guest are expected to uniformly praise the very socialist ideology I abhor and fight against. Whist I can.

Whilst I have the power of written word in me I will practice to the maximum extent I am able to The Privilege of Freedom I was granted with my US citizenship.

I will not heed the misguided suggestions to submit to mass hysteria of socialism from my “guides”. They are not my masters. They do not know or do not care to think and discover that crematoria were filled with submissive escapism just like that in mid-twentieth century.

I will not heed the submission to the will of media-influenced and brainwashed holders of power any more than I would listen to my writing community peers who have succumbed to pressures of leftists-dominated publishing industry or bought into the narrative of “our version of socialism will work”. NYET! I hate to disillusion you, my comrades in ink, socialism always works for just a few privileged ones – and if you sell your soul, you can be one of them.

I’ll stay true to my truth-seeking soul. I will not alter what I write about, whom I write to and for, or my form of expressing/communicating with my audience, because I will not be bowing to the demands of this anarchist and socialist mobs. You may do as you please. I will not! No accomplishment of mine will hold any value, if I arrive at it through submission to false idols. That includes Islamists and I am not afraid of using this word, because I know full well the difference between Islamists and Americans who are practicing Moslems without a terrorist or world domination intent. I despise Europeans that have submitted and lost their once magnificent countries to religious domination, socialist and new world order control.

I may not have been raised to be a proud Jewish woman. I came into this knowledge and realization slowly, painfully at times, and with great personal sacrifices. But I will die a proud Jewish woman, free in my mind and heart of any malfeasance, especially as an author. I pray this time is far off and those who are now obstructing my path will have already learned why they were wrong in their attempts to block me.

 

The Transparency of Jared Kushner

Posted by Marina B on December 6, 2020 at 11:00 AM Comments comments (0)

I did not know much about Jared Kushner when Donald Trump was running for President in 2016, other than he was already very wealthy before marrying Ivanka Trump and was a Chabadnik, a follower of modern orthodox Judaism. The rest I learned as he successfully transitioned the Republicans into digital media to win the 2016 race against many “pre-destined” or rather “pre-distributed” odds.

The Democrats were probably not expecting the digital success and popularity of DJT communicating directly to the “masses.” The Democrats, despite purporting to be the party representing the interests of the ordinary voters, have long ago became the party of massive conglomerate control from unions to media to big pharma to big tech.

Jared, like his father-in-law, does not need to sell out. The entire Trump clan openly and proudly went into the Trump Administration, forfeiting some of their business ventures, to help make America great again – not to make this slogan as hollow as so many of their predecessors have done.

 

MAGA, is like Frankie Valli’s lyrics:

It's got groove it's got meaning

Grease (MAGA) is the time, is the place, is the motion

Now, grease (MAGA) is the way we are feeling…

 

By mid-2015 I felt very tired, deceived, disturbed and scared by the doings of US politicians (I did not know enough then to refer to them as Deep State) of both parties during the 16 long years of Bush and Obama that have burdened me and millions of others with numerous inconsistencies between the leader’s statements and the actual events and the effect of political actions of US on ordinary people.

Before 2015, I also felt it, but since I never really paid intense attention to politics, with some exceptions, I was complacent.

As a long-time New Yorker, I remembered Trump for his unconventional big-mouth approach to both life and business, and for some of his good deeds he never got enough praise for. I never followed The Apprentice – not my cup of tea. Loving America – is! It was clear to me from day one that Trump is in it, because he loves America, and like me and millions others, he wants to rescue it from the destructive powers that have swooped into it for decades, tearing at the heart of it, until it broke in 2001.

That would not, could not be mended by the Arab-oil-dependent-Bushes, the anti-American Obamas and certainly not by the jail-bound (I then thought) Hillary Clinton, whose callous negligence on the night Amb. Stevens was murdered in Libya and long list of strange untimely deaths of the unwanted remind me of the Medici and Soviet Commissars.

 

I did not understand The Deep State until the wool the Democrat Party has pulled over my eyes cleared up.

 

In comes Jared, a Jew, who gets assigned a paid official position and undergoes the appropriate clearances, evoking, amid other mass hysteria of late 2016-early 2017, an outcry for nepotism! Spare me this bulls-t! To steal hundred of millions, billions, trillions, like The Obamas and The Clintons is somehow ok, but to get a transparent appointment of a trusted right hand – not! Theatrics led to anti-Semitic outcry by “the concerned” modern gangsters of BDS and other pro-“free-Palestine” groups, who immediately understood just where Jared’s efforts could lead to – the undesired peace.

In peace, you see, accountability is possible. In wartime, not! And war is how these “palestinians” are able to thrive. Ever seen the waterfront mansions in Gaza? You should.

 

Back to Jared. So, I learned that he has Berkowitz (same Russian spelling as mine) ancestors by reading about his Holocaust-survivor grandparents. I also learned that he was born on the first anniversary of my arrival to USA. That is my personal connection to Jared.

 

Over the past four years, largely due to his exceptional efforts – yes, exceptional, ‘cause no one before him could! – that the US embassy was relocated to Jerusalem and so far UAE and Bahrain have established diplomatic relations with Israel, and others are waiting to do so. Jared, somehow, discovered that long-lost pathway to recognition of Israel that the UN had abandoned eons ago… No coincidence, to me, that he, a grandchild of Holocaust survivors and an orthodox Jew, is the one who has been shown the way to finding it.

 

You’d think that all Jews would rejoice at the thought that this highly sought peace is finally on Israel’s horizon. Nah! There is no and there never will be any “Jewish unity.” Probably never was.

 

Reform Judaism is threatened by the revival of Jewish Orthodoxy. Instead of admitting to themselves that such resurgence is a direct result of contemporary Reform Judaism stepping so far away from the actual reformation of Judaism the 19th century enlightenment intended, that it became, in many ways, destructive to the basic traditions of Judaism that it was the Orthodox who preserved it for us through the millennia, and taking steps to reconcile, the Reform Jews are openly promoting hatred against the Orthodoxy, stemming out of basic human envy and self-servicing desires of the Reform leaders of all levels. Just read some of their correspondence or listen to their anti-Trump sermons, and everything falls into place – they hate Jared for his orthodoxy as much, if not more, than his Trump connection.

 

Incidentally, they hate Ivanka for converting even more, and destroyed her business completely. The most hate, of course, comes from the “tolerant left” and is not exclusively Jewish. For God’s sake, Jews are only 1% of population!

 

And this brings me to the reason I felt like writing this is important – in The Forward Facebook post this weekend Jared was accused of failing his grandparents’ Holocaust legacy and then hundreds of “tolerant” Jews proceeded to bash Jared, shamelessly exposing their own brainwashed hatred, as something desirable and admirably sanctified. Peace in Israel, therefore, one must infer, is something undesirable and evil. As is the word “god” in the phrase “in god we trust.”

 

I admire Jared and Ivanka for their unfailing work to strengthen The United States of America on her course constitutional course as a Judeo-Christian nation. This young couple has given US four years of their time, brought in their negotiating skills to empower minorities, women, small businesses and foreign relations that promote and support the America First status of our nation.

They sacrificed four years of attention that they diverted from their children to pressing State priorities and subjected their family to hatred from all the people whose livelihood depends on stealing from the government, as opposed to empowering it. They did it for US! For us, for you and me! For the remainder of their lives, they will need security details. Private, not government. They do not expect gratitude, but they most certainly deserve it! As they do respect!

If you are smart, you will contrast what Jared (Ivanka) have done whilst in office to what the grown children, including in-laws, of The Clintons and The Bidens, for instance, have done.

If you are ignorant through your own choice of your party affiliation or your job pressures, you will continue to disregard The Truth and by the time you get it, I hope you are still free and I am still alive, because I choose to serve The Truth.

 

I TOLD YOU SO

Posted by Marina B on December 2, 2020 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (0)

If I ever hated anything, hearing or saying “I told you so” is it!

I love and respect my friends to never use these words. I do not think that I used them more than a couple times in childhood, and certainly not since I matured.

 

But today I must!

 

In anticipation of 100th anniversary of Bolshevik Revolution I intensified my personal plight to better inform the population of the USA about the imminent threat of socialism. For the past five years I’ve written about it and presented, in various forms to multitudes of audiences, the materials I call “Socialism 101.” I was sincerely hoping that by educating Americans about socialism, I am opening their eyes and minds in time to prevent them from repeating the same mistake USSR, Germany, China and many other countries have already made – believing in benevolence of socialism.

 

I am not unique in doing this now, but at the beginning, at least in certain circles, I was. Inasmuch as I was being met with the usual interest former Soviet refugees still evoke among the people who are either anti-Communist (let’s agree that Communism is the ultimate quest of Socialism!) or have worked on and sponsored the release of Soviet Jewry from the USSR. With the first group, it usually is a semi-rewarding experience of preaching to the choir. With the second, an uphill battle against the deeply seeded belief in the underlying goodness of socialism.

 

Over the past century, American Jews, as well as non-Jews, adapted the ancient Judaic concept of Tikkun Olam, that is the prospect of overcoming all forms of idolatry, which over millennia of Jewish history has been reframed by other Jewish thinkers as an aspiration to behave and act constructively and beneficially, to equate to that of socialism.

 

 

Socialism, in the meantime, has a long bloody tail of revolutions, starvations, tortures, murders, break up of nuclear family, forced resettlements, forced labor in all kinds of gulags and concentration camps, disposal of God and replacement, via atheism camouflage, with Socialist/Communist Party idols, like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, just to throw in a few names at the gullible people, who continue to blindly praise socialism as they refuse to understand its meaning or study its inhumanely cruel history.

 

Every generation, I often heard, deserves what it gets.

Let that one sink in.

Do we all deserve this socialist plague?

 

I don’t! I already fled from it into the wonderful land of USA. That is, the wonderful land it used to be before the Obama Destroyer shook its fundament and toppled, one after the other, the cherished values America offered for almost two and a half centuries to every woman, man and child seeking freedom.

 

 

In two weeks all freedoms will be removed from under every freedom-appreciating American and will be replaced, as the Grand Masters Obama and Soros designed, by the values of American Cultural Revolution. All of the people of USA will be made into slaves to this revolution. I can now just as accurately predict just how it will unfold, as to what the useful idiots’ reaction will be. The removal of basic rights and freedoms, will be followed by the removal of basic conveniences, but that is OK with the meek. They do not seem disturbed by relinquishing those, little by little, as long as their leaders continue the perpetuation of lies they used to trap them, and everyone who resisted the cultural revolution, into this bottomless abyss of suffering. Those who do not seek The Truth, are never disturbed by the loss of it, until…yes, here’s my “I told you so” time.

 

I told you so! I told you that you will have no free speech, no fair elections, no patriotism, no love of America, no Judeo-Christian nation, no God, no respect for your neighbors, no real education in your schools – these and more will be replaced with propaganda ideology and forced submission to the Elite Communists (Or whatever they may be called on this turn!!!)

 

I told you so! You and your children will be miserable, perpetually angry, regretful, remorseful, embittered, destitute and hopeless. And possibly your grandchildren and great-grandchildren, but you will not live that long! You will be hungry, recalling the everyday pleasure you had by eating your favorite foods, snacks, desserts. You will be restricted as to when you can shop and where, based on your political affinity until it is beaten out of you. You and your children will be held accountable for the incompetency of every leader you voted into the office during the last free election that you thought was yours to steal.

You will suffer!

You will suffer like three of my great-grandparents, who died in the first post-revolution winter in 1918 Ukraine at the bandits, pogromschiks, lack of medical care and food.

You will suffer like my fourth great-grandparent, who went from relative comfort and a promise of happiness to extreme poverty practically overnight and never had it good again for the remainder of her long lonely life.

You will suffer like my parents and aunts and uncles, who were brainwashed into believing that socialism is the tikkun olam, and even if they came to realize differently, they submitted, or they would have suffered even worse.

You will suffer like me, and will understand the pain I am now living through, having escaped out of this socialist nightmare for four decades, only to witness you take me down into this oblivion with you!

Yes, every time you will complain – and your days will be filled with complaining – I will draw special pleasure from saying “I TOLD YOU SO!”

 

And you would not listen. Now, pay the full price, as you deserve!

 

As it always happens, I, too, will suffer with you…

I will be full of regrets, the biggest one of them will be, I should have had a stronger voice and more influence, alas, I did not get it. As a teacher, I’ll stand back, after you immerse, mature and settle into your socialism. I TOLD YOU SO would be the only thing I could tell you then…if I have any voice left.

 

The Murky Times

Posted by Marina B on November 24, 2020 at 3:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Once upon a time in Russia, there was a period known as Time of Trouble, in English. In Russian it’s called “Murky Time,” a better name, as it explains the very muddy and shadowy state of the state between 1598 and 1613.

In 1591, Tsar Ivan The Terrible’s youngest son, Dmitry Ivanovich, the Crown Prince of Russia, only 9 years of age, was ruthlessly assassinated by the greedy envious power usurpers.

His successor, Fyodor I, the oldest son of Ivan The Terrible, the last of the Rurik Dynasty, the founding dynasty of Russia, died without an heir in 1598. (1557-1598). His wife was the sister of Boris Godunov, the man who already acted like a Tsar for years of Feodor on the throne…Boris reigned 1598-1605. His son, Feodor II, reigned after, until June 10, 1605…

At that same time, three Pretender Tsars claimed the Throne of Russia.

Did they not teach you any of Russia’s Murky History in USA history classes? Well, perhaps, not in the last 40 years, when classic education was thrown out to accommodate “progressive change.”

The Three Pretender Tsars of Russia were:

Dmitry I, historically known as Pseudo-Demetrius I and False Dmitry I, proclaimed himself a Tsar and reigned from June 10, 1605 to May 17, 1606, his death, under the name of Dmitry Ivanovich.

He was the first, and most successful, of three Pretender Tsars of Russia. (самозванцы; самозванец, singular). All three claimed to be the youngest son of Ivan the Terrible, and each claimed to have successfully escaped the assassination…in 1591…

False Dmitry I was survived by his wife, the beautiful Polish woman of many talents, Marina Mniszech, whose very last name will become a new word in the Russian lexicon – mnit', to imagine oneself to be….

False Dmitry II, d. 12/11/1610, aka Pseudo-Demetrius II and also called the rebel/criminal of Tushino, a then village near Moscow, now part of Moscow, was the second of three pretenders. He is believed to have been either a priest's son or a converted Jew and was relatively highly educated for the time. He spoke both the Russian and Polish languages and was an expert in liturgical matters. And – here’s my favorite tidbit – the widow Marina recognized Dmitry II in 1607 to be the real Dmitry I, who was “raised from the dead,” but actually not. Wars were fought and lives were lost in pursuits of the Polish Kingdom after the Russian Throne…as Don Cossacks became more powerful against The Swiss and The Poles… DII was killed by a tatar prince he previously flogged…

False Dmitry III, aka Pseudo-Demetrius III, died July 1612. He was the most enigmatic of the three, from Novgorod, but aka the rebel/criminal of Pskov, proclaimed himself Tsarevich (Prince) Dmitry on March 28, 1611. The Cossacks, who were leading a long campaign against Moscow, proclaimed him Tsar and kissed the cross (swore allegiance), but a year later, May 18, 1612 he was seized and delivered to Moscow, where he was secretly executed. Murky Times lasted until in 1613 Michael Romanoff ascended.

All students of government destabilization study The Murky Times aka Smuta in Russian.

Freedom of Thought, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Expression

Or How George Floyd is Being Used To Destroy Jews

I was born a slave to socialism in the USSR, Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics.

I escaped at 18, after I had undergone complete Soviet Communist Party indoctrination and was miraculously shown the way out of the lies that are inherently built into the system of Socialism with Communist elite at the helm.

That was forty years ago.

As I write these words at my private residence that has more bedrooms and bathrooms than residents, I wonder where all the insanity of current cultural revolution and political coup in US is going to take it. Will I be forced, as my Russian predecessors in 1917, to surrender private ownership to everything I own, things of financial and sentimental value that took me a lifetime to assemble, after arriving to here with $90 and a small crate we were able to ship that contained mostly books, dishes and bedding. The hidden irony is that no one will want whatever is left of the dishes or linens, and most certainly, no one will read those books after me. To the current generation they represent only extra moving expenses. To my generation, they stood for Thought, Reason, Enlightenment, Integrity, History – ideals of irreplaceable value we fought, and some even lost their lives waiting for.

Will my IRAs be confiscated? Maybe that is why I always had such hard time saving and never could envision living in comfort in my old age.

Will I be forced into one room of my house, once redistribution hits full swing? Which room? The smallest, for sure. There undoubtedly will be a family of six using the larger bedroom and bathroom. There always are the more needy that cannot pull themselves up. They will benefit a little. I will suffer a lot!

I’d be lucky to use a shower, if the water will still be running. In the USSR, we never had it running in summers. Is there a well nearby? The river is at least 3 miles away. How would I be able to carry water? I’m not getting any younger.

House the size of mine could house three proletarian class families, at least. All women sharing one kitchen. The constantly disappearing food. No one could leave their soup unattended, lest the always-feuding neighbors spit into it.

I wake up, praying, or dear God, please not!

In today’s speak, proletarians are not revolting against the government. It is the intelligentsia class that is directing this coup, just as in the past, perhaps, once again, genuinely believing that they can “make a better world for you and me.”

I like my world, whatever is still left of it, after the destruction and redistribution we had already endured during the Obama administration, that he is still determined not to transfer out of.

There is so much insanity that awaits, the revolutionaries have been dropping hints and conducting drills all along. Out in the open. And they are becoming less guarded, so entitled they feel. Like the 2020 election fraud.

The most blatant was The Summer of Floyd, when a criminal was elevated to the status of martyrdom to serve a revolutionary purpose. The coup, the revolution against Trump, is really against me and my house. I own things others covet and will take away from me, because that is how revolutions work. And I will become one of those old ladies, who cries into her handkerchief mourning the gentility of the past. If I am lucky to survive at all.

As a Jew, I sit here knowing that the escalating anti-Semitism will blow up into another round of horror. Last night I read that an American Holocaust Museum has opened an exhibition about the death of George Floyd. This morning I check it out and true, The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center in Orlando, Florida, its leadership, to be precise, are the new same old useful idiots I never get tired of cautioning against!

It was not enough for the useful idiots dishonoring the legacy of The Holocaust by diluting its very tragedy, the deliberate, well-planned and organized extermination of six million of European Jewry through all-inclusiveness and diversity policies and permitting a combination with WWII victims of all other nationalities, even though these were not specifically targeted for such genocide.

Now, having duly belittled and destroyed the newer generations’ concept and perception of THE HOLOCAUST. The intolerant left is declaring war against the Jews by…using a Jewish legacy and Jewish hands to perpetuate yet another annihilation of Jews.

While I can still speak freely, the right I can foretell will evaporate in the not so distant future, I implore you to think independently, without listening to pundits and news purveyors for fact analyses. Use your common sense!

George Floyd is now being used to destroy Jews!

George Floyd was a criminal.

He has no relation to The Holocaust.

There is no genocide of blacks in USA! There never was!

Stop this travesty before it becomes the norm! Whilst you still can exercise your right to think and express yourself freely.

Someone is manipulating everything in the world to rebalance the power.

You and I will end up with a substantially diminished world.

If we sill have our right to live.

Everyone has their right to express their views. Even those, who knowingly exploit the george floyds of this country. But they have no right to express their views by destroying the legacy of the 20th century tragedy of MY PEOPLE.

Not even MY PEOPLE have that right. Enough with your cultural revolution, your coup, your revisionism, redistribution, anti-Trump hatred!

The despicable level of low-intellect involved in preservation of the sanctity of The Holocaust Legacy is making me sick!

By the time they come for me, there will not be anyone left to speak! And that time, I fear, is just around the bend…

 

November 9, 2020, a week after...

Posted by Marina B on November 10, 2020 at 11:45 AM Comments comments (0)

It’s been a week of uncertainty, treachery, mockery, flippant hijacking of due democratic process, gloating by the 4-year-long-anger-mongers who had never accepted that Donald J. Trump is THE President of USA.

It’s been a week of exposing the unprecedented levels of vote thievery, forgery, fraud, pillaging and harboring of vote crime perps by their willful colluders at MSM.

It’s been a week of zero rioting by those deplorable Trump supporting chumps, the no-goodniks who even at their moments of deepest grief found courage to joke, and make alternate plans, like what to do 4 years from now.

It’s also been a week of celebration by and of an impostor, culminating with Bejing-bought Ukraine-sought criminal Joe Biden getting up on stage to proclaim himself President-elect, dismissing the fact that no such proclamation was certified by any of the individual states and electoral college, and that his opponent did not concede, and is, in fact, suing for recounts. In his fake election “winning speech” Joe did not even bother to reference his predecessor, the current duly elected and fantastically pro-American President, thereby displaying in the open his/his party’s desire, intent and ability to revision history as it happens in addition to hating America and stealing/usurping every achievement of current, highly productive and successful, administration.

And half the country loves that Joe did that.

Which means half the country are supporting crooks of varying levels – from street rioters and thugs to police killers and high-level government officials who are insubordinate or derelict their duties, from social media phony fact-checkers to full force free-speech censors, like Neil Cavutto, from critics of Donald Trump to his haters, who wish him dead and so onto his children, from ballot-drop-off-box burners to election officials filling in the fake ballots for dead people.

The damage to the American election process is unfathomable.

In essence, Barak Obama just achieved what he set out to do – the country is on the verge of collapse of its fundamentals. The only miracle that could save us is, of course, the miracle of Donald J. Trump.

Yet, so many of his supporters can be heard shifting the blame onto his huge shoulders – “he should have tweeted less, should have been nicer to people in his cabinet, should have not gotten so anxious during the first debate, should have never given interviews to people who’d use it against him”…

Shoulda, whoulda, coulda – Trump’s been dealing with and getting rid of that losing wing for decades of his winning, winning, winning.

Get yourself in line, pull yourself up, support him more today than you did last week – that’s all he ever asked of you, weaklings! Do just this little for him!

And all you others so eager to concede you cannot wait until the final fat lady aria is sung! No! We cannot embrace Joe and reconcile with the party that shows no iota of respect to President Trump! That is like it’s 1941, Hitler and Stalin are meeting to reach a non-invasion deal and you are asking us to make nice with Hitler all over again. You are like Stalin! You are Stalin! You will build the Gulags next, place them under AOC, who’d make you eat grass like cows, and lick her boots clean like the real Nazis did in Ukraine after it was captured. Nancy Pelosi will be like eating gelatos out of her big ice cream fridge just to show you that she can, yes, she can!

Nothing that is happening now is new to humanity. Another set of tyrants is power-grabbing big time and destroying a thriving country, on whose protection many others depend. The swamp is deep and wide; every alligator has very sharp teeth, swims faster that you and will try to eat you alive, like that woman in Alligator Alley last weekend.

Beware, boys and girls, this fight will get very ugly. Much uglier than you have ever seen. They already threatened that you should not speak out, or you would be unemployable for life.

This proletarian has nothing to lose. Not even her chains.

Why Trump2020 is The Only Choice, Unless You Are a Socialist

In the real world, people need to make simple choices – life is complicated as it is, in an overly convoluted way. Every day we are losing more of our once famous “American privacy,” as the Big Techs encroach into our individual worlds by offering us conveniently fast means of modern communication to which we are, let’s face it, addictively hooked, and for which we pay dearly with their demands on our time, finances and freedoms. And they censor us a la wartime censorship departments…arbitrarily, and we have been tolerating it…and so that circle goes.

 

I look at America’s presidential choice through the prism of my personal journey away from socialism, atheism, socialized medicine, statelessness, and ask why?

Most Americans are so mercantile. Serve them the wrong size coffee or a wrong condiment and they notice, complain, demand refund. The Clintons and Obamas robbed them blind and they ate it up. I think it is because the currently living generations had never learned how to do without. Some call them “spoiled.” I think they are blessed by their abundances and yet at the same time are not burdened by their complacency. Last March, severe deficit of toilet paper and hand sanitizer gave them a little preview of socialist reality, had they cared to analyze. But as soon as they got their replacements, all was forgotten, no lasting lesson learned and that is why and how everything got twisted into a historically inaccurate mess as we watched Donald Trump solve the crisis, build committees and alliances, while his Democrat nemeses could hardly conceal their envy – yes envy – that he was successful at that, too! (Think Brothers Cuomo!) The entire unfortunate and tragic idiocy of The Summer of Floyd followed. Insane! But like the obediently complacent sheep, a large portion of populous predictably grew weak in the knees, brains, hearts.

You all know The Truth.

It is impossible not to know it, no matter the views or experience. Truth is Truth and always is. It’s just that for some it is inconvenient, for others, not profitable, a few are in denial of it, and so it wilts, like a house plant of a traveling family, without water, but is always ready to perk up as soon as the roots get water circulating up the stem.

For the past five years Donald J. Trump has been that water source of The American Truth. He’s been watering the roots of our plants – our souls – and reminding us to remember to send a vital supply of nourishment to our brains and hearts. Americans, mercantile or not, have historically excellent hearts. None of this USA experiment would have been achievable without that prerequisite. In our American hearts Truth occupies a special chamber. Some may just need a stent or two to clear the pathway.

At the very least in 2016, they were “With Her”, an understandable desire to get a female into Presidency, even though that specific choice was soiled and sordid.

In advancing a washed up old white man without emulatable accomplishments to a nomination, the Democrat Party now demonstrated their corrupt essence. Through covering up and censorship, the MSM demonstrated their uselessness. Perhaps, conventional Media had outlived its useful life and became obsolete, like the old inventory does when the product demand dries up. Besides, neither the Media nor The Democrat Party itself have contributed anything of a significant value to the United States of America for too long a run. Like two decades. As often happens in decaying organizations and companies, they are only plucking at their slice of the pie, hoarding the crust in their caves and dens, and threaten those seeing The Truth with the Dark Winter they’d call upon if and when they regain the reigns.

Like a socialite debutante or a beauty pageant contestant, whose lies about wanting “world peace” whilst really coveting that year of crowned glory and earnings, Candidate Joe is willing to say anything at all that he deems will appeal to his pageant audience, even though they all know it is ALL LIES!

There are different sets and standards of expectations for each of the two candidates, where there should exist only one – leadership of good old USA.

A former auditor, I assume that everyone is suspect, but I also have that impeccable auditor’s sense that led me to catching several serious thieves during my career. A thief, even when cornered, continues to push the same or invent new lies. Joe is excellent at that. Much better than Trump could ever be. But it’s just not his game. He is not a politician. He’s been learning on the job at a very vigorous 74 and doing better than most of his predecessors, ever!

I believed in the promise of Trump since 2015. Perhaps not as immediately as when he descended down that escalator. I admired Ben Carson for his unmatched bravery at the National Prayer Breakfast where he was the first one who dared to publically confront Obama. And I certainly was not “With Her”. Why would anyone in their right mind trust a woman, a mother, who heartlessly went to bed as 9-11-Benghazi unfolded and later dismissively swept any questions about it under her very soiled magic carpet that made many things disappear – emails, money, people? That happened on Joe’s watch. He was, is, responsible for it, too.

Experts will write thousands of books about The Trump Phenomenon. He is capable of turning the country around and that is what his Make America Great Again call means. Not white supremacy or other backward idiocy as MSM and Joe’s supporters propagate.

My someday maybe great-grandchildren will study Trump’s klutzy New Yorker leadership style in schools. I actually hope they do. Everybody’s awakening moment will come sooner or later, sooner if Trump wins 2020, later and much more painfully, should he loose and the socialist doom enters.

Freedom is an immeasurably volatile personal commodity. Freedom of Speech even more so. Millions are free, as in un-jailed, in the world today. Only a sampling of those have the ability to practice free speech, even here in USA, where it has been practically muzzled by the Big Techs and other collaborators of the DemParty.

 

As an escapee from socialism, communism and Marxism, I speak freely on every topic I chose. Reelecting President Trump will give me four more years of Free Speech and that is the absolute reason that I am proud to vote for Trump again.

Free Speech and all who worship at its alter will be killed if America turns to socialism.


 

 

Institutionalized Discrimination

Posted by Marina B on October 20, 2020 at 9:25 PM Comments comments (0)

As a long ago victim of bona fide, not imaginary, revisionary or artificially created, institutionalized discrimination, I too want to contribute to this suddenly popular conversation, but not in the way pc culturists obstruct the truth by diverting your attention to their skillful misuse of linguistics.

 

What is a plain old ordinary Discrimination? It is the prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex; the act of making unjustified distinctions between human beings based on the groups, classes, or other categories to which they actually belong or are perceived to belong.

 

What is Institutionalized Discrimination? It is unjust and discriminatory mistreatment of an individual or group of individuals by society and its institutions as a whole, through unequal intentional or unintentional bias or selection, as opposed to individuals making a conscious choice to discriminate.

The oft thrown about since last summer Systemic Discrimination involves a pattern or practice, policy, or class case where discrimination has a broad impact on an industry, profession, company or geographic area.

 

I started my life in the maternity room of Kiev, USSR hospital with nurses and doctors refusing to assist my mom, because she was a “kike”, a severely derogatory term for a Jew. USSR, as a socialist country, presented itself to the world and its own population as the most brotherly of world nations for 70 arduous years of this horrific social experiment at government control over the individual. In my 18 years there, I have witnessed and was target of plain old ordinary discrimination, institutionalized discrimination and systemic discrimination. As the Russians say, I ate a dog in discrimination! (Old adage meaning there’s nothing you can tell me about it that I don’t already know.)

In my 40 years in the US, more than half was spent in Tri-State geo area, I had witnessed diversity, integration, segregation and discrimination of various sorts. Yet last summer, someone – BLM, Antifa, their back ground handlers, like Grandpa Soros and whomever – reinvented discrimination to conveniently propagandize their mind-control agenda to the poorly prepared and/or outright brainwashed part of US population.

Since 1965, the US embraced the Affirmative action, or a set of laws, policies, guidelines, and administrative practices "intended to end and correct the effects of a specific form of discrimination" that include government-mandated, government-approved, and voluntary private programs. That was 55 years ago!

 

What is Affirmative Action as it relates allocation of resources, employment or education? It is the practice or policy of favoring individuals belonging to groups known to have been discriminated against previously, including but not limited to a set of policies and practices within a government or organization favoring particular groups based on their gender, race, creed or nationality in areas in which they were excluded in the past such as education and employment.

So effectively, for 55 years, discrimination was systemically replaced by the Affirmative action. That time span yielded 3, possibly 4, generations of children who were born and raised in the post-discrimination era.

There is no question in my mind that Affirmative action was needed to fix and reconcile certain prejudicial treatment of individuals and groups such as blacks or Jews, and later gays. There is also no question in my mind that like all good intentions, it comes with a hefty price.

Affirmative action gave rise to the Institutionalized reverse discrimination.

What is Reverse Discrimination? Reverse discrimination is discrimination against members of a dominant or majority group, in favor of members of a minority or historically disadvantaged group. Vivid examples are BET, all black colleges and the restriction on Asian student admissions by Ivy League.

During my years in NYC, I experienced a sampling of that as well.

The first Black American President would have served this nation best after he was elected to the highest office of the land, twice, to do away with this outdated fix by readdressing the issues at stake. Instead, racial tensions were deliberately instigated via deployment of socialist, Marxist and even terrorist tactics that heavily relied on complacency of corrupt MSM and punished groups that insisted on not subscribing to mass hysteria and personality cult the Obama administration had instituted, praised and rewarded.

In the years since 2008, a generation ripened on the brainwash ideology of reparations, redistribution of wealth, cultural and religious superiority, such as atheism and disdain of patriotism, that came of age during the Summer of Floyd and forced itself onto revolutionary stage through looting and cop-killing to secure its army in the ongoing Civil War on Trump.

The tables have turned. Since 2016, and especially since COVID, the ordinary discrimination against conservatives, practicing Christians, Orthodox Jews and traditional values, which include love and patriotism for country and Office of US President, had escalated beyond plain old Institutional Discrimination.

We have entered a VIRTUAL DISCRIMINATION GULAG era with Big Tech finishing what Lenin started in 1917, the elimination of undesirables without trial. Don’t wanna kneel, fired! Vote for Trump, fired! Don’t wear a mask, no admittance to medical office or supermarket. No vaccination, no freedom!

As in the Soviet GULAGs, criminals control everything, they rule over the weak, the good, the inexperienced, breaking them into submission.

GULAG is the ultimate child of institutionalized discrimination – no bribe - no food, no soap in the shower, no protection from rape and beatings, and no life!

If Biden should win in 14 days, on which side of the virtual barbed wire will you find yourself? A rapid history lesson: the compliant ones are always killed anyway. But first, they are forced to kill off the neighbors, friends, and even family. Submission is king! Individual is dirt! State is father!

Are you ready for Mother Kamala?!
