Special Report: The biggest Russia-gate scandal of all
Anti-communist freedom fighter Vladimir Bukovsky suggests there is a simple reason why the West has never held Nuremberg-style court trials for the communists – Western leaders were complicit in communist crimes and they don't want to be held accountable.
The subtitle of his massive book Judgment in Moscow is "Soviet Crimes and Western Complicity," but it also has lessons for the United States as President Trump confronts Communist China, another threat made possible by Western trade and aid.
Consider that former President Barack Hussein Obama in November 2017 had rushed over to Beijing to clink glasses with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China.
The Chinese media hailed the reunion as a meeting of "veteran cadre," an extraordinary term that means the former U.S. President has been operating as a communist agent or operative.
The Chinese state news outlet Xinhua reported that "Xi made a positive appraisal of Obama's efforts in promoting China-US relations during his presidency."
Bukovsky's website proclaims: "The movers and shakers of today have little interest in digging for the truth. Who knows what one may come up with? You may start out with the communists, and end up with yourself."
His book indicts American officials and names the names of those who thought the Soviet Union could also be integrated into the international order. It is so explosive that all major American publishers rejected it.
It was finally published by Ninth of November, a small press named after the day the Berlin Wall came down. Elizabeth Childs, President of Ninth of November Press, has been working hard to get the media to pay attention to the explosive allegations and information in the book.
A true whistleblower with direct knowledge and access to incriminating documents, not hearsay, he exposes America's "progressive" elites as apologists for communism and documents how the European Union was a Soviet project from the start
Bukovsky co-authored (with Pavel Stroilov) another eye-opener, EUSSR: The Soviet Roots of European Integration, which examines "secretive discussions between Western and Soviet Union leaders planning to create a collectivist European Union State."
Those of us who traveled in Europe during the Cold War, when East and West Berlin were separated by machine guns and barbed wire, may have a better appreciation of the stakes.
Those who never saw the Berlin Wall can, nevertheless, take a look at what is happening in Hong Kong today. Or they can read Judgment in Moscow if they want to understand Russia.
Russia, as we demonstrate in our book, Back from the Dead: Return of the Evil Empire, went through the communist experiment that lingers there and now grips our nation.
The "errors" of communism in Russia, as some Catholic traditionalists believe, have never been "corrected" by the church (and therefore Russia) and unless Russia is converted to Christ in a consecration ceremony it will continue to wreak havoc on the world.
We see the turmoil all around us. KGB defector Konstantin Preobrazhensky spoke to our conference on Lenin and Sharia in 2012 and understands that America is suffering through its own communist revolution.
Bukovsky tells me he is not a religious man, as he is too skeptical to accept any religion or dogma and has adopted a more "libertarian" view about the basic need for individual rights and responsibilities.
In this spirit, he is a signatory to the "Appeal for Nuremberg Trials for Communism," which states that "Communism did not fall with the Berlin Wall," despite the dramatic nature of that event.
The appeal says, "This ideology is still alive in the world, in states and parties that are openly communist and in political and cultural thought that minimizes and tries to erase the crimes of communism, ... if it were a good idea which only happened to coincide with the rise of one brutal regime after another across decades and continents."
Indeed, before ultimate victory can be hoped for, an official Nuremberg Trial for the communists and their fellow travelers in the West must be held. Perhaps President Trump could ask Bukovsky to come to the White House to get this proceeding underway.
You can bet the Obamas are not going to use their lucrative deal with Netflix to sound the alarm about socialism and communism.
Indeed, their recent "documentary" on that platform, "American Factory," done by a socialist, seemed to suggest the only problem with Chinese communism was the lack of American-style labor unions.
Bukovsky's book notes that the Communist Party USA has been treated as a joke, since there were reportedly only about forty thousand communists in the whole of the USA
"One should not forget," writes Bukovsky, "that back in 1917, Lenin also started out with only forty thousand comrades." He goes on to describe communist involvement in domestic U.S. politics at Moscow's direction.
Indeed, while praising anti-communist President Ronald Reagan, he notes that a liberal Congress opposed his "Reagan Doctrine" of supporting freedom fighters around the world and "dreamed up the most unbelievable strategems in order to tie President Reagan's hands.
Reagan himself described an increasing communist influence in Congress. A journalist asked Reagan in 1987 what can be done "when two dozen pro-Marxists with real political clout can, in our own Congress, influence great issues of defense, arms control and international policy?"
Reagan agreed that this was, indeed, "a problem we have to face," and that the Soviets and their communist agents had tried to "make anti-communism unfashionable. And they have succeeded."
He then made a reference to the days when Congress had a committee (the House Committee on Un-American Activities) that would investigate even its own members if communist involvement was suspected.
Today, the figure is several dozen Marxists in Congress. Dozens more have Marxist or radical Muslim affiliations.
Communism made an effort "to masquerade as humanism" giving communism a human face of compassion and equality. Similar propaganda is working here, as Bernie Sanders, a self-declared socialist who sympathized with the Soviet Union and even honeymooned there, is a popular figure.
The left-ward drift of the Democratic Party validates Bukovsky's observation that "upon closer scrutiny, real anti-communists, who understood fully what we had to deal with, were fewer in the West than in the Soviet Union."
Regarding the so-called Russia-gate scandal, in which American "progressives" accused President Trump of being a Russian agent, Bukovsky dismissed it as a "political game."
He said "For the first time, the left-wing establishment discovered the Russian threat. Previously, they didn't see any threat. When it was real and we tried to attract the attention of the world to the Russian threat, we were accused of being paranoid and unrealistic.
Now we have proven we were not paranoid. It did exist. Suddenly, the world discovers the Russian threat. He said the allegations constitute political games by "the elites," who "should have come to the conclusion that all of the socialist experiments are absolutely deadly."
Instead, however, we see that socialism is accepted by many young people and Democratic Party politicians.
Gorbachev figures prominently in Bukovsky's book, as a hero to the elites who accepted his "fables" about changes in the Soviet Union and around the world and became the subject of "thoughtless euphoria" in the West.
Despite the record of Soviet assassinations of dissidents, Bukovsky, now 76 years old and in stable but poor health, laughs and says he doesn't fear for his safety and is not scared of anyone. "When they try to kill you every year," he said, "you stop worrying about it."
But many people in the United States are afraid of Bukovsky – and his message. That's why it took so long to get this book, written in 1995, published in English. But after twenty-five years, the book that was nearly lost to the English-speaking world is now available.
