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.

 

 

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.

 

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?!

Surviving Intellectual Dishonesty

Posted by Marina B on October 13, 2020 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)

My reflections after today’s Senate confirmation hearings.

One of the most dangerous impacts of socialism, in addition to food shortages and physical punishment, is brainwash.

Brainwash (verb) is defined as making someone adopt radically different beliefs by using systematic and often forcible pressure. There are many synonyms for brainwashing, like mind or thought control, re-education or thought reform, but they all lead to the same result, altering the human mind by employing certain psychological methods and techniques that will affect the subjects’ ability to think independently.

The contemporary brainwashing we are observing in 2020 removed the inconvenient barriers of critical thinking through revisionism of both history and social norms. Summer of Floyd witnesses, who were horrified by the images of lawlessness, rioting, destruction and murder that ensued in USA following a controversial arrest of George Floyd. He was a known criminal whose cause of death was recorded as drug overdose. Then in a rush to something we know as Social Justice he was displayed in a gold casket at his funeral and his family was set for life of newly-found astronomical wealth through a multi-million dollar Gofundme collection. All that became an Anti-Trump Civil War (2016-present) crown and scepter as the deceased was crowned (during the corona-virus pandemic, no relation) to lead the we-were-told currently-oppressed masses to redistribution of wealth, fundamental destruction of the still colonial United States (that pillar of slavery that had a elected black president twice!) and into socialism, politically, economically and societally.

What we were shown on TV, what was printed in the press for us to read via all MSM-run organs was a campaign of intellectual dishonesty, a complex weapon engaged in the Anti-Trump Civil War (2016-present).

What is intellectual dishonesty and how and when does it convert to brainwash?

To understand the Intellectual Dishonesty one must first accept an ethical definition of Intellectual Honesty. Wikipedia states it is an applied method of problem solving, characterized by an unbiased, honest attitude, which can be demonstrated in a number of different ways:

• One's personal beliefs or politics do not interfere with the pursuit of truth;

• Relevant facts and information are not purposefully omitted even when such things may contradict one's hypothesis (MB: proposed explanations)

• Facts are presented in an unbiased manner, and not twisted to give misleading impressions or to support one view over another;

• References, or earlier work, are acknowledged where possible, and plagiarism (MB: representation of another author’s work, thoughts, expressions as if they were one’s own) is avoided.

Intellectual dishonesty is the pushing forward a position that is known to be false. Intentionally committed fallacies (intentionally invalid propositions) in debates and reasoning are examples of intellectual dishonesty. Misusing facts to advance an agenda or to reinforce one's deeply held beliefs in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary is intellectual dishonesty. Denial of facts to advance an agenda or to reinforce one's deeply held beliefs in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary is intellectual dishonesty. Misrepresenting revisionism of history, statue toppling, vandalism, aggressive protests and cancel culture is intellectual dishonesty. Labeling the above list “peaceful protests” is intellectual dishonesty. Praising the defund the police slogans, demeaning law and order, advocating for cop-killing is intellectual dishonesty. So are putting forward that black lives matters (more then all others or too, really same thing in this context) or denying that all lives matter equally, or at least should matter equally, at the end of second decade of the 21st century, demanding financial compensation for 500-200 hundred years ago slavery, kneeling during or walking away from the public performance arenas during the USA National Anthem are intellectually dishonest propositions. The list goes on and on.

Demanding your employees go through re-training to accept that black lives matter is brainwashing.

Restricting writers’ submissions to black voices, or people of color voices is the impact of brainwashing.

It happens very fast.

Most young people who eagerly accepted all that during The Summer of Floyd did not even realize how brainwashed they had been made, as their professors had also been brainwashed.

Brainwashing, therefore, is a cultural sterilization of thought, where the sterilizer may be written or spoken word. Honest debate, critical thinking, independent evaluation of written and spoken information and defiance in face of mob pressure or exertion of supervisory authority, refusal to submit to company politics and/or policies that infringe on one’s private opinions and one’s constitutional right to exercise free speech are tools necessary to survival. Arm yourselves with them if you want to advance as a free human being.

Today, US Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, during the US Senate confirmation hearing, gave us all a lesson in composure, humility, ethics, morality, integrity and honesty.

Most of us would have wavered under a lesser pressure, Judge Amy displayed the strength of mental stability only the smartest among humans possess. From her pleasant, unaggressive demeanor, to her calm confidence, Judge ACB is a role model for women of all generations. 45 Democrat Senators barraged her for the second day in a row with convoluted orchestration of intellectual dishonesty designed to entrap and destroy this high-achieving woman, mother of 7, because it is inconvenient to them at this moment in their candidate’s campaign, inadvertently demonstrating to the world that they, Dems, care not for our country, only for the advancement of their agenda whilst pushing forward many positions that are known to be false. Their efforts to create alternative truth were painful to observe. I admire the grace with which Judge Barrett held herself through these first two days.

Truth always wins. Even after decades of brainwash, truth always has a propensity to shine through.

It did today through ACB. As a professional woman and a mother, I could not be more proud of her. I will be rooting for her approval and will commit to following her career no matter the outcome of this nomination. She represents me very well. I will strive to emulate her best I can.

She is the first Supreme Court nominee of my lifetime who is all that!

 

The Role of A Teacher - Then and Now

Posted by Marina B on July 31, 2020 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

"We don't need no education, we don't need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom

Teacher, leave them kids alone"

I loved Brick in The Wall by Pink Floyd, the song that was super popular in the year of my arrival to USA. I don't think I clearly heard or understood all the words in it, and I am certain, I had no idea how the deliberately distorted the English language was. It defined the characters, who were sarcastically demanding improvements in their education. Just like I did only a short while before then.

To my freshly out of the USSR ears and my bewildered by the year of resettlement mind, it was a hymn to the dismantlement of the lifetime powers my socialist teachers had just finished subjecting me to after ten long years. I sat through the countless classes, concerts and meetings of brainwash. First without understanding that I was being groomed, then with full understanding and compliance, and lastly, with defiance.

Socialism was something that I understood as the "thought control" in Pink Floyd's song. Thought control, behavior control, life control ... these were the very reasons why I escaped from it, paying dearly for the opportunity to change the course of my life. I thought that I got rid of the strong, powerful, debilitating hold of Socialism and the society and system it builds - forever.

During my school years, I had a number of wonderful teachers who understood, not unlike many of the USSR citizens, the damage socialist teachings were doing to our young minds, but could not stop teaching us the socialist ideology of Marx-Lenin and Brezhnev, who was The Premiere of the Central Committee of the USSR then. It was part of their loss and socialism's win - complete submission to the totalitarian authority. "If you're not with us, you are against us," Lenin said. His anxious followers eliminated those who where against. Simple reason not to dispute who's in charge at all times. No matter how harsh the reality as contrasted to the utopian ideal if its promise.

Most people living now no longer know what USSR was - Union of Soviet Socialist Republics - the country that gave birth to the socialist experiment and started the largest mass murder of the 20th century - 100,000,000 dead because they protested, or just simply expressed their dislike, or were removed by more deserving socialists, who needed to redistribute their homes and furniture to themselves. Neighbor against neighbor. The Russian Revolution, that was a technically bloodless event of November 7,1917, left a long red trek in its wake. It is so long and so lasting, it seems eternal at times.

I, too, wanted to become a teacher. In fact, it was the only aspiration I ever had as a child and teen. I played teacher, I practiced to be a teacher, I substituted for sick teachers since I was in 5th grade, I trained to be a teacher. I even had a job waiting for me. Yet, as I realized that there is no escape from brainwashing the new generations of Soviets into the same socialist nightmare I already knew, I decided to not partake in that cycle, choosing instead to leave...as a stateless refugee...with all the fears of the unknown that were ahead.

So, I already know what it feels like to be condemned by your close friends, who secretly envy your bravery but for whatever the reason cannot be brave. I already know what it is like to be ostracized by the circle of peers and society, to be spied on by neighbors, to be tagged and branded, to be corralled and join the horde. I know what it is like to be treated as an enemy. Why would anyone want to relive what I went through?

Like right now, on July 31, 2020, in USA, during The Summer of Floyd. Not Pink Floyd! George Floyd, he unfortunate criminal, whose death was so skillfully used by the Marxists aimed at the overthrow of the United States of America and turning it into yet another Socialist "success" with food lines and mandated medicine that make no pretense that ordinary humans only matter to the regime to serve as slaves to it.

I taught in the United States instead. To the adults, who like me, underwent lived through their individual variation of exodus. Teaching is very gratifying experience for the teacher. As I shaped my adult students' professional knowledge, I also imparted on them some humorous ways of dealing with speaking with an accent and becoming a rightful member of the democracy.

In retrospect, I probably could not have lasted long in US as a teacher. 10 years into my immigration, I became an American patriot, and my academic head would have rolled, had I not complied. I wouldn't have, so now you know.

I am mortified at the socialist brainwash the so-called "educators" of America imposed on generations of American youth. Brainwash is as contrary to the concept of education as child molestation. Yet we punish only the molesters ...we reward the brainwashers, because most of them are in the teachers unions and are serving the unions agenda. Not at all as the best teachers in history, who went unremarkably nameless, but created great minds like Leonardo, Einstein and Curie. in every sphere at every epoch of human development.

The role of the teacher first and foremost is to teach to reason and rationalize, to build and develop the strength of character to pursue lifetime learning and search for The Truth. Not to recite the works of Lenin or Marx or the myriads of socialist professors of America who are required to publish, so they push their socialist agenda onto our brilliant republic, its democracy, and the mesmerized by the failed promise of socialism generations of the useful idiots our institutions of learning put out.

 

Kiev Sept 1941 to USA in 2020, looters, invaders, and ordinary peoples fates.

Posted by Marina B on July 29, 2020 at 7:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Hitler’s Germany attacked USSR on June 22, 1941. Kiev was bombed at 4 a.m. Once Nazis entered Kiev on September 19, 1941, the remaining population did what civilians caught in the war zone do - they fended for themselves, because they had no government over them to keep law and order. Most of them hated the Soviets-Bolsheviks-Communists. They had no idea what just rolled into town...

The people of fallen Kiev run on the stores, broke the glass window panes and stole everything - food, lamps, matches, candles, furniture - whatever. The invading army gave them three days, as invaders usually do their own soldiers. The Nazis also took part but since the Germans were a more civilized, cultured, intellectually superior class, they feasted by raping and killing.

One 11 year old boy, Anatoly Kunetsov, observed much of this, even participated in some petty looting with his neighborhood mob in a desperate attempt to provide for his family, took some notes, and reported about everything he witnessed during occupation in his incredible book Babiy Yar after he survived, grew up and became a writer.

What was the NAZI response after the “grace period” was over? How did they restore order? They issued one of their many edicts. It was a flyer, typed in Russian and pasted in many places overnight. The people read it in the morning and quickly spread the news, faster than we do over Facebook - through the neighborhood grapevine - the ancient, most effective method to spread fear. The order mandated all looters to return 100% of the their booty to the loot gathering centers. Death for the non-compliant. Immediate fear spread through the city. People, who for three days proudly carried the stolen goods into their homes, then ate and drank their stolen goodies, were now mortified that they could be shot by the invaders, who authoritatively walked around the city, shooting on site any Soviet Army men, or Komsomol (young communist league) members they discovered. In all neighborhoods the lines formed to return the loot. Anatoly returned what he stole, after some contemplation. After 30 years of Socialist rule, everyone, even children, knew to be afraid of their neighbors more even than the authorities. What government could not discover, willing neighborhood spies did for a price, under any of the many regimes. If you wonder what happened to the recovered “loot,” it was passed on, in a very organized manner, to the Nazi-collaborating store-keepers for resale, after the Nazis took their “finder’s fee.” The were no protesting rightful owners, i.e. Soviet Government. They were conquered. Destroyed.

Even before The Summer of Floyd, many Trump-haters were comparing his presidency to Nazi Germany and POTUS himself to Hitler. It’s beneath me to reflect on the idiocy of such parallels - it speaks entirely of the prejudices and hatred of these fraudsters who know neither history nor honor. The intellectuals they undoubtedly consider themselves are not unlike the Germans of the 1930’s and 40’s. I offer to you, instead, a thought on how US Federal Government handled the insurrectionists’ looting and rioting under the magnificent democracy of US constitution - the Feds allowed the state and local level governments to address the situation locally, using the citizen-paid resources. What happened next? How did each municipal government address the theft, vandalism and destruction of citizens’ and businesses’ private property, murders and mayhem? They, the “invaders” did not! They condone it by repeatedly pretending it is ok to rob and destroy, especially if Federal property or even lives are at stake. I think, they are the ones behaving like the Nazis in Kiev in September of 1941 or most likely, even worse. But with a twist - they control by dismantling order to inflict anarchy until they are ready for the totalitarian takeover.

No one was asked to return anything they stole from the hundreds, thousands of places! In fact, the blame has been shifted from the “invaders” to the rightful owners - businesses, private citizens, police, Federal Government and, of course, The President, who has been patiently waiting for the local and state governments to return to their paid duties - maintaining law and order in the municipalities people entrusted to their care. That is so Hitler, right?! The invaders are provoking a to-the-death situation with each passing day.

The defenders of Kiev in 1941, blew up the city center to get rid of the Nazis in a heroic but poorly delivered action, which led to the anyway inevitable mass murder of the remaining Jews of Kiev - 33,771 shot by bullets in the ravine called Babiy Yar on September 29 and 30th. That is what you see in the deliberately blurred photo above. A happy Nazi made sure he captured a lot of scenes. It’s all online for those who want to study and educate others to never forget.

Jews are now being blamed more and more by the invaders and insurrectionists in The Summer of Floyd through various anti-Semitic methods of libel. We are so used to that, aren’t we? Inevitably, they always line us up in our next Babiy Yar and fire, or whatever the means of execution they’ll use this time. My bet’s on chipping, so they can send us off like in Logan’s Run, but hey, I could think of a real pandemic or two or three.

The inability of so many ordinary people to discern who is who in the modern day scenarios comes into play because for fifty years or so, the right wing of the Republican Party has been associated with KKK through the Democrat Party’s intentional deliberate distortion. Yes, there are radicals who are in the Republican Party who hate. Like, yes, there are many Jews who vote Democrat because they are socialists in their hearts and think that “social justice’ is the best cure for humankind. There are huge numbers of Jews who vote Republican because they have common sense in addition to whatever intelligence is attributed to the Jews by Jew-haters and think that social justice is not a reasonable measure to gain equality in a modern society. Just like there are huge numbers of Republicans who do not hate anyone and never did. Even if their ancestry were white or black slave-owners. There are still plenty of people left in The Democrat Party who are torn between their multi-generational party loyalties and their own common sense as they witness the domestic terrorism in action. That is no social justice! Social Justice, in its present form, is nothing but a call for vindictiveness. An eye for an eye. Drop the Party platform and look at The Truth and nothing but The Truth, so help you Gd!

We are now at the point of history where Democrat Party is rapidly becoming like the marriage of Hitler Jugent to Brownshirts, a mob of exalted radicalized executioners torturing everything in their path to serve the dictatorial regime whose declared leader is actually already hiding in his “bunker.”

I awake feeling like I am the boy Anatoly Kuznetsov in Kiev in the ten days of September 1941 between the 19th and 29th, frantically trying to figure out what the invaders will do next and always failing. I shake with fear that once again the Jews will be told to gather with their most valued possessions and be marched by the mob to their final ravine and this time, their Christian friends and defenders of common sense, American Patriotism, capitalism, freedom and all that is so great about USA, will also be accosted and annihilated at the same pyre.

Today, as I witnessed AG Barr Democrat Party Inquisitionists, I cried, because I could already smell the smoke and taste the final bloody breath I will take - there is no other logical way of looking at this - The Invaders have been sanctioned by The Leaders of The Democrat Party of The United States to destroy all people who oppose their invasion.

Today is a sad day for history of USA. We are all permanently shut away in our homes instead of gathering by millions to defend our freedom! Whilst we still can!

The Iron Mask of COVID19 or how to lie down and hide under a white sheet...

Posted by Marina B on July 23, 2020 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (0)

The most lastingly vivid example of personal injustice literature and history offer us is the story of a twin-king who, for his personal security and well-being, was isolated from the world and hidden behind a contraption shown in this photo, the Iron Mask. We know him as The Man in The Iron Mask. We all read Dumas, didn’t we? If you did not, you probably learned little or nothing from the films showing his captivity; none of his mental torment. But even he was not deprived of the ability to speak...his lips were free, his tongue was not cut-off, like the Romans in Britain or Indians or Chinese or Arabs would have done, and he was not forced to inhale his own CO2... like the modern mask wearers... What does it matter now? The French Revolution rolled over him, his brother, his country, his countries’ revolutionaries... as the next revolution will over the next people its crooked or insane leaders strive to “liberate” in order to enslave them into the next new order...

In the 1960s and 1970s, during the Cold War, I, behind the Iron Curtain, you, underneath The Stars and Stripes you so proudly saluted to every morning, were told to practice what to do in case of activated nuclear threat. I remember, “get down to the floor, cover your body with a white sheet”... “Will that help me live?” I asked my teacher once. “No, but it will keep your body from turning to dust,” she answered. Oh my teachers, they all also told me that socialism will turn into communism by the year 2000, whilst we were all equally deprived of food, clothing, housing, medicine, truth, etc. They could not tell me anything different, because their teachers’ union would have sanctions and severely punish them. By putting a figurative muzzle (mask) on them and cutting their tongue (imprisonment).

After arriving to America, every foreigner from Soviet-block countries noticed that Americans smiled and were welcoming. It became part of my assimilation process. A foreign born, Naturalized American Citizen usually treasures USA and everything about it. We know the difference of gaining freedom. Sorry, native-born, you usually do not! You were lucky to have freedom at birth. You have no idea how to smile without smiling because you really don’t have much to smile about. Or maybe now you do. The events of 2020 have been teaching you that freedom is yours to lose. But are you seeing the lesson? Are you willing to protect your freedom? To fight for Lady Liberty, whenever she needs you?

In the USSR, where everyone had all sorts of winter flues and colds and whatever, we were told to stay at home, keep our distance, not to exhale or cough into the faces of others, wash our hands and not to share dishes with other household members. Then I came to USA, New York, more specifically, where everyone went everywhere whilst coughing and sneezing. People at work used the same telephones without ever using a disinfectant. On subways and buses, they wiped their noses and grabbed the handles others would grab after them in a moment. No one wiped any shopping carts. Or paper money. Or whatever. Our children, like us, were taught to ignore minor symptoms and go to school. Since moving to Florida in 2004, I have witnessed the snowbirds flying in sick on airplanes. Going to the supermarkets and sneezing and coughing on fruit, vegetables, and other shoppers. People would look at me like I was crazy, when I tried to distance myself from them instead of saying “Gd bless you!” or wiping my carts at Publix in a maniacal manner. NO ONE EVER WORE MASKS! Except in Japan. Or our guests from Japan here in Florida. Just last February.

A civilian wears a medical mask for 2 reasons and 2 reasons only: 1) to protect himself from contamination 2) to avoid knowingly contaminating others with what he already has.

If I am not sick, I cannot contaminate you. If I am in a closed space, like an airplane, one of the filthiest, most unsanitary quarters humans are canned into, I may want to wear a mask to prevent catching whatever you or other passengers may have. When you choose to wear a mask that is not N95 or otherwise contagion preventative, all you are doing is making yourself more vulnerable. Without it, your healthy immune system fights. With it, you may make yourself sick and become another improperly counted COVID statistic...

No one ever wore a mask because “we were all in it together” socialist slogan had never before been applied to so successfully to rapidly brainwash a generation. No one ever wore a mask out of sheer “concern for others.” Mask-wearing in 2020 is becoming a selfish act of voluntary servitude. The liberal left is politicizing it and blames the Republicans for politicizing it, like they twist and turn and burn everything in their destructive path to globalization of socialism.

Some people, who think of themselves as my friends, felt the urge to berate me for my very strong viewpoint. I guess, we were just never friends. Friends respect each others’ opinions. Or have a balanced way to deal with differences of their opinions.

Nobody, not even Presidents Trump, Xi or Putin, know the full truth about COVID. It is probably buried somewhere by Hillary Clinton’s able assistant Huma...(LOL)

I had an appointment with my eye doctor at the hospital yesterday. Had to wear a mask to get in. They also took my temp. I am healthy! There were no other people in the waiting area. I glimpsed into a couple offices. They were all mask-less. I lowered my mask. I met no one. No one had me breathing on them. When the doc came out, I pulled my mask on and we later agreed to lower it below my nose, while we were sitting opposite each other 1 foot apart. I reserve the right to exercise my judgement and I am not judging anyone who wears their mask even when driving alone and also with their rubber gloves on... Anyway, I could not breathe and still I was fogging the equipment. The good things about masks - neither doc nor I smelled each others lunch breath...

I am harshly judging careless idiots who dispose of their worn masks in parking lots via littering! Or anyone who fails to recognize the totalitarian control measure of mask mandates at non-pandemic pandemic of COVID!

I know for certain, that by forcing upon a nation of friendly people of USA a repressive mask mandate along with stay at home, unemployment and cultural revolution 100+ days before The Most Imperative Presidential Election in USA History, you are saying to me that I should get that white funeral sheet, because if I will not be pulverized, I will be enslaved like the man in the Iron Mask - until the end of my days.

Well you do that! I’m not stopping you from inhaling CO2! I am not stopping you from wearing your “Iron Mask.”

As for me, I’d like to look you and death in the face with my uncovered smile!

 

Of liberals, progressives and destroyers of USA

To say that I am depressed on the eve of my always important birthday is not to say anything at all. The country that I love, the one I chose for my home, the one that accepted and loved me back, is in dire danger. With the cultural revolution, insurrection, widespread political and judicial corruption, with demoralized population that is being oppressed by people who ironically call themselves 'liberal' and 'progressive', who preach down to average American citizens that they fight for 'social justice' whilst suppressing inconvenient and disagreeing opinion in totalitarian style - that's my throw back to the USSR! Been there! Lived it! Know what''s coming - it's been written in black and white! Not the racial one! The inked one. To say that I am disappointed in my fellow Americans, my fellow New Yorkers, my fellow Jews is not to say anything at all. USA has been blessed to not have a significant invasion by foreign armies. Generations of trusting and naive citizens became complacent. Into this fertile ground, to serve certain political interests, hundreds of sleepers were smuggled in openly, across porous and open borders, despite some protesting, and maybe in spite of it. Now we are all in danger. Those who knew better, those who were gullible, those who were duped -- everyone! The awakening is not happening fast enough. With only 4.5 months left to the most critical election this country has ever known, I realize that what we are all witnessing is the actual struggle between good and evil. Just as in the Bible! Just as at the root of every religion. Just as at the root of every principle of a functioning human society the atheists/socialists/communists want to upend once again. Even when I was such atheist and thought USSR was superior to USA, because that's what my brainwashers propagandized upon me, I knew that what makes for human survival is preservation of hope. Loss of Hope is the last loss a human experiences before dying. For my birthday wish I ask you to contemplate on hope for the United States of America and all the good people who are at this time as depressed as I am or maybe more, as afraid as I am or maybe more, and whose only hope is The Survival of USA as the Great Nation it is.
