"Battle of Ideas and Systems"

In 1956, at a reception for diplomats Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, in one of his highly charged, emotional tirades said, "We Will Bury You!"

"We are Bolsheviks!" he declared pugnaciously. "We stick firmly to the Lenin precept—don't be stubborn if you see you are wrong, but don't give in if you are right." "When are you right?" interjected First Deputy Premier Mikoyan—and the crowd laughed. Nikita plunged on, turning to the Western diplomats. "About the capitalist states, it doesn't depend on you whether or not we exist. If you don't like us. don't accept our invitations, and don't invite us to come to see you. Whether you like it or not. history is on our side. We will bury you!"[1]

Nikita Khrushchev
April 17, 1894 - September 11, 1971

His not so well known words - which our diplomats apparently missed were:

His voice was scornful as he added: "But we, Mister Capitalists, we are beginning to understand your methods."

By this time, the diplomats—who, in turn, have come to understand Mister Khrushchev's methods—had already left the room.

Skipping ahead in time, after the political assassination of Vice President Spiro Agnew, President Richard Nixon selected Gerald R. Ford Jr. (alias Leslie Lynch King) as a replacement for Agnew.  Not long after that, the Watergate burglary and Deep Throat took Nixon out and put Ford in the White House as the only un-elected President to hold the office.     

In August of 1975, Gerald R. Ford committed an act of the treason against the people of the United States when he signed the Helsinki Final Act.  Excerpts from his speech:

Almost 200 years ago, the United States of America was born as a free and independent nation. The descendants of Europeans who proclaimed their independence in America expressed in that declaration a decent respect for the opinions of mankind and asserted not only that all men are created equal but they are endowed with inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The founders of my country did not merely say that all Americans should have these rights but all men everywhere should have these rights. And these principles have guided the United States of America throughout its two centuries of nationhood. They have given hopes to millions in Europe and on every continent.

I have been asked why I am here today.

I am here because I believe, and my countrymen believe, in the interdependence of Europe and North America — indeed in the interdependence of the entire family of man.

The purpose of the Helsinki Summit1 was supposedly for cooperation for the reunification of Germany.  Helmet Schmidt confirmed Ford's intent by referring to the United States and Canada in the collective:

The States of Europe and North America, recognizing their common responsibility, have tried "to build bridges of co-operation between the systems, spanning the gulfs that divide them".  Helmet Schmidt2 

And Soviet Premier Brezhnev3 defined the intellectual context (emphasis added):

Soviet Premier Brezhnev said (excerpted):  Before this exceptionally authoritative audience we would like to stress most emphatically one of the inherent features of the foreign policy of the Soviet Union: the Leninist policy of peace and friendship among nations; its humanism. The decisions of the 24th Congress of our Party are imbued with the ideas of humanism, as is the Peace Programme, which called in one of its items for the convocation of an all-European conference...   The understandings we have reached here on many items expand the possibilities for peoples to increase their influence upon what is called "grand policy at a high level". At the same time they touch upon worldly problems. They will contribute to improving the lives of people, providing them with jobs and expanding opportunities for education. They are relevant to health care...   It has been a victory of reason.

Declassified State Department documents reveal that the post war reorganization of the U.S. Government was in large part to create a shadow government that would work covertly to collectivize European nations into an association which came to be known as the European Union.  The U.S. signing of the Helsinki Agreement was characterized as the U.S. playing the part of observer but with the benefit of hindsight, clearly, they were agreeing to subvert U.S., Canadian and Mexican sovereignty as well by elimination of borders and integration of governments to create a regional union - the North American Union.  (Note:  there is a difference between cooperation and co-operation.  They used the term co-operation). 

The Co-Operation called for in the Helsinki Final Act:

Basket 1.  Security
Basket 2.  Co-operation in the fields of economics, of science and technology, and environment
Basket 3.  Security and Co-operation in the Mediterranean, Co-Operation in Humanitarian and other Fields

The "Co-Operation" included exchanges of professionals and businesses in all areas of endeavor listed in Helsinki Final Act.  To understand how our country has been infiltrated with marxist ideology, all one needs to do is to study the Helsinki Agreement. 

Domestic Management

In 1974, Nelson Rockefeller was sworn in as Vice President.  The following are significant excerpts from Rockefeller's Senate biography (emphasis added):



























In 1940, President Franklin Roosevelt appointed the thirty-two-year-old Rockefeller to the new post of coordinator of the Office of Inter-American Affairs. It was a shrewd move on Roosevelt's part, designed to mute the Rockefeller family's support of Wendell Willkie for president that year. Although his brothers served in uniform, Nelson held civilian posts throughout World War II, becoming assistant secretary of state for American republics affairs in 1944. He played a key role in hemispheric policy at the United Nations Conference held in San Francisco, developing consensus for regional pacts (such as the Rio Pact and NATO) within the UN's framework. Although President Roosevelt tried to lure Rockefeller into the Democratic party, he remained loyal to his family's Republican ties. When Roosevelt died, his successor showed less appreciation for Rockefeller's talents. In August 1945 the failed haberdasher Harry Truman fired the multimillionaire Rockefeller, in order to settle a dispute within the State Department.

Rockefeller returned to government during Dwight Eisenhower's administration, where he chaired a committee on government organization, became under secretary of the new Department of Health, Education and Welfare, served as special assistant to the president for cold war strategy, and headed the secret "Forty Committee," a group of high government officials who were charged with overseeing the CIA's clandestine operations...

Gerald Ford told the nation that he wanted his vice president to be "a full partner," especially in domestic policy. "Nelson, I think, has a particular and maybe peculiar capability of balancing the pros and cons in many social programs, and I think he has a reputation and the leadership capability," Ford explained. "I want him to be very active in the Domestic Council, even to the extent of being chairman of the Domestic Council." But during the months while Rockefeller's nomination stalled in Congress, Ford's new White House staff established its control of the executive branch and had no intention of sharing power with the vice president and his staff. One Rockefeller aide lamented that the "first four month shakedown was critical and he wasn't involved. That was when the relationship evolved and we were on Capitol Hill fighting for confirmation."

Rockefeller envisioned taking charge of domestic policies the same way that Henry Kissinger ran foreign policy in the Ford administration. Gerald Ford seemed to acquiesce, but chief of staff Donald Rumsfeld objected to the vice president preempting the president. When Rockefeller tried to implement Ford's promise that domestic policymakers would report to the president via the vice president, Rumsfeld intervened with various objections. Rockefeller shifted gears and had one of his trusted assistants, James Cannon, appointed chief of the Domestic Council. Rumsfeld responded by cutting the Council's budget to the bone. Rockefeller then moved to develop his own policies independent of the Domestic Council. Tapping the scientist Edward Teller, who had worked for Rockefeller's Commission on Critical Choices, he proposed a $100 billion Energy Independence Authority. Although Ford endorsed the energy plan, the president's economic and environmental advisers lined up solidly against it.




























Commission on Critical Choices

The Commission on Critical Choices was formed by Nelson Rockefeller in 1973.  The organization of the Commission was documented in a book titled, "Trilaterals Over Washington" by Anthony Sutton and Patrick Wood.  Except from Book 2, Chapter 5:



In its own words,

“The Commission on Critical Choices for Americans is a nationally representative, bipartisan group of 42 prominent Americans, brought together under the chairmanship of Nelson A. Rockefeller. Their assignment: To identify the critical choices which will confront America as it embarks on its third century as a nation and to determine the realistic and desirable objectives this nation can achieve by 1985 and the year 2000. “Because of the complexity and interdependence of issues facing the world today, the Commission organized its work into six study panels, which emphasize the interrelationships of the critical choices rather than studying each one separately.


“The six study panels are:

Panel I—Energy and Its Relationship to Ecology: Economics and World Stability.
Panel II—Food, Health, World Population and Quality of Life.
Panel III—Raw Materials, Industrial Development, Capital Formation, Employment and World Trade.
Panel IV—International Trade and Monetary Systems, Inflation and the Relationships Among Differing Economics Systems.
Panel V—Change, National Security and Peace, and

Panel VI -Quality of Life of Individuals and Communities in the U.S.A.”9

In brief, the Commission is a Rockefeller study group funded by a Rockefeller organization:

“The Third Century Corporation, a New York not for-profit organization, was created to finance the work of the Commission. Since the start of its activities in the fall of 1973, the Corporation has received contributions and pledges from individuals and from foundations well-known for their support of public interest activities. “10

The membership of the Commission reflects this Rockefeller influence:

  • Nancy Hanks. Later married to Henry A. Kissinger.

  • Edwin J. Logue. In 1968 received a gift of $31,389 followed by another $145,000 of which $45,000 was repaid.

  • Henry L. Diamond. Executive Director of the Commission, received a gift of $100,000 in December 1973. 11




The significance of the Commission's Panels is that they roughly correspond to the basket items for "co-operation" in the Helsinki Final Act.  It would seem that Rockefeller set the terms for the Agreement since his Commission was established while he was Governor of New York and was two years before the Act was signed by Gerald Ford.   That thinking is supported by... Marble Cake?

Time Essay: THE MARBLE-CAKE GOVERNMENT Washington's New Partnership with the States
May 27, 1966


NOT long ago, Washington used to offer simple, straightforward directions to any state or city that received federal aid. The directions went something like this: "Take as directed. Do not shake. Do not stir. Swallow hard." The states were not very fond of the directions, but they wanted the funds that came with them—and they swallowed their objections. Now something new and interesting is happening to the often strained relations between the Federal Government and the nation's states and cities. To a degree that few people could have anticipated only a short time ago, Washington is actively seeking the help, cooperation and counsel of the states, the cities and a vast array of volunteer groups and private industries. It is forging new partnerships that have wide-ranging implications.

The effort goes by the name of creative federalism, a term suggested by New York's Governor Nelson Rockefeller in his 1962 Godkin Lectures at Harvard and picked up by Lyndon Johnson in his "Great Society" speech at Ann Arbor, Mich., in 1964. Far from seeking a stronger role for the Federal Government—as it sometimes has been thought to do—creative federalism not only asks states and cities to do more on their own, but challenges the concept that governmental power is a one-level reservoir from which every cup drawn by Washington means a loss for someone else. Instead, as Max Ways wrote in FORTUNE, "creative federalism starts from the contrary belief that total power —private and public, individual and organizational—is expanding very rapidly."


Ronald Reagan, Actor-Politician

Fast forward to 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected as President with George H. W. Bush as the Director of Vice (President).   Reagan had learned the art of propaganda as a host for CBS's 'General Electric Theatre from Lemuel Boulware.  Boulware was the  Deputy Director of the labor-relations for War Production Board during World War II.   And Reagan was the best.  When he spoke, he hit every nerve in the conservative political body without giving a hint to the populace that he really was a communist.  And it's only in hindsight - by looking at what he did rather than what he said, that he is revealed. 

In 1982, Reagan gave a speech to the British Parliament that is stunning.  He described the problems with the Soviet Union and their system; he then proposed that the United States establish the same system of propaganda with think tanks and Foundations to provide the ideological ammunition.

Excerpts from Reagan's speech:

As for the Soviet view, Chairman Brezhnev repeatedly has stressed that the competition of ideas and systems must continue and that this is entirely consistent with relaxation of tensions and peace. We ask only that these systems begin by living up to their own constitutions, abiding by their own laws, and complying with the international obligations they have undertaken. We ask only for a process, a direction, a basic code of decency -- not for an instant transformation...

This November in Washington there will take place an international meeting on free elections and next spring there will be a conference of world authorities on constitutionalism and self government hosted by the Chief Justice of the United States. Authorities from a number of developing and developed countries -- judges, philosophers, and politicians with practical experience -- have agreed to explore how to turn principle into practice and further the rule of law.

At the same time, we invite the Soviet Union to consider with us how the competition of ideas and values -- which it is committed to support -- can be conducted on a peaceful and reciprocal basis. For example, I am prepared to offer President Brezhnev an opportunity to speak to the American people on our television, if he will allow me the same opportunity with the Soviet people. We also suggest that panels of our newsmen periodically appear on each other's television to discuss major events.

On June 11, 1982, Reagan traveled to Berlin to give a speech in which he said the following:

"We in the West have made our choice. America and our allies welcome peaceful competition in ideas, in economics, and in all facets of human activity. We seek no advantage. We covet no territory. And we wish to force no ideology or way of life on others."

But communism - collectivism is not a political philosophy.  It is an institutionalized criminal enterprise.   They centralize control for asset stripping from the population leaving people destitute with no resources available to produce and with a gun to their heads if they complain.  And that is exactly what is happening in this country now.  Right straight down the line - every negative thing that Reagan said about the Soviet system is what is happening to our country now.  And why is that?  It is because Reagan invited the Soviets into this country for a "Battle of Ideas and Systems" just as Chairman Brezhnev suggested and what was agreed to in the Helsinki Final Act.  

In 1983 and 1986, Reagan signed agreements with Mexico and Canada respectively that were the first steps towards unification our countries to create the North American Union.  These were the first steps towards breaking our nation by creating international zones for the communists to work through and use under the cover of the United Nations no doubt. 

According to Wikipedia, 1986 was also the year that Mikhail Gorbachev introduced his alleged reforms.

Mikhail Gorbachev was the Party's first leader to have been born after the Revolution. As de facto ruler of the USSR, he tried to reform the stagnating Party and the state economy by introducing glasnost ("openness"), perestroika ("restructuring"), demokratizatsiya ("democratization"), and uskoreniye ("acceleration" of economic development), which were launched at the 27th Congress of the CPSU in February 1986.

Brezhnev's "Battle of Ideas and Systems" combined with Gorbachev's initiatives of glasnost, perestroika, democratization certainly sound as if they had studied the writings of Antonio Gramsci as well as "our methods" - just as Khrushchev said.

In 1984, Reagan announced his Strategic Defense Initiative dubbed 'Star Wars'.  Despite the Futurists vision of a space shield, this initiative was no doubt about the development of satellite communications, conversion to digital switching systems for telecommunications and GPS systems.  But the definition of Strategic Defense seems to encompass everything except bullets. 


"A Strategic defence is a type of military planning doctrine and a set of combat activities used for the purpose of deterring, resisting and repelling a strategic offensive, conducted as either a territorial or airspace invasion, or a naval offensive to interrupt shipping lane traffic as a form of economic warfare. Strategic defensive need not be passive in nature, and often involves military deception, propaganda and psychological warfare, as well as pre-emptive strategies. All forms of military force are included in the planning, and often civil defence organisations are also included.

In terms of military theory, strategic defensive thinking seeks to understand and appreciate the theoretical and historical background to any given war and conflict scenario facing the decision-makers at the national level. The requirement of the decision makers for the strategic defence analysts is usually for providing a detailed understanding of strategic and defence issues of relevance to the national and regional relations and intentions."

It's not known if the duality of the Star Wars label was intentional or coincidental (doubtful), but when Reagan opened up the United States for the Soviet propaganda machine, he ushered in the era of the mass brainwashing, delusions, illusions and 'cult of personality' strategies.  In fact, Reagan himself has what could be described as a cult following.  With Reagan, the political arena became theatre and the line between reality and fantasy was erased.

The Helsinki Final Act combined with Gorbachev's reforms have allowed communists to infiltrate every level of our society to the point now, that the United States is falling to communism, quisling politicians pretend not to notice, and the mass media provides nothing but propaganda and cultural Marxism.  America is dying and dirt is thrown in our faces on a daily basis as they bury us.



Communist Outlets for the Distribution of Soviet Propaganda in the United (Part 1)

Committee on Un-American Activities
House 87th Congress

 Synopsis - Pages 1587-88

The Soviet Union and its international network of Communist and Workers Parties utilize numerous weapons in their unrelenting revolutionary struggle to attain world conquest. One of the principal weapons in their arsenal is the ingenious application, on a tremendous scale, of a variety of propaganda devices.

Stressing the formidable dangers of propaganda as utilized by the world Communist movement, Evron M. Kirkpatrick states in his book, Target: The World, that "only in the hands of the Nazi and Communist leaders has propaganda attained first-rate importance as a weapon for achieving national and international political goals."

Dr. Kirkpatrick, executive director of the American Political Science Association, author of books on American government, and former Government official and chairman of the Social Science Division of the University of Minnesota, also wrote in the above-named study:

Modern totalitarianism, of which Communism is the pre-eminent example, has harnessed technology and psychology to persuade, convince, confuse, demoralize, and control. Inside Communist countries propaganda is used to control the ideological environment of the people, to secure obedience, consent, and conformity. Internationally, Communist leaders utilize propaganda to recruit followers, secure sympathy, and to divide and demoralize opposition. Universally, Communists use propaganda in the effort to suggest and insinuate the view of the world most favorable to their temporary plans and policies and to their long-range goals. Aware that loyalty and action alike grow not so much from what happens as from what men think happens, the Communists have developed a huge, diversified propaganda operation at work night and day * * *.

No one can read the history of the Communist movement, or for that matter the history of the world in this century, without being impressed with how crucial the use of the modern means of mass communications, of propaganda, is to Communist tactics. And yet, in spite of the obvious importance of propaganda and propaganda activities to the Communists, in spite of the role these activities have played in the cold war of recent years, there has been very little Systematic attention devoted to this propaganda effort.

The Committee on Un-American Activities believes that propaganda directed from Soviet sources constitutes one of the greatest single threats to the security of the United States and the free world. Through this weapon, Khrushchev and other Soviet and national Communist leaders have succeeded in swaying many millions of non-Communists throughout the world, winning their support for Soviet policies and turning them against the programs and policies of the free world.


The worldwide Communist propaganda offensive is largely an insidious slander campaign against the United States. The Soviet propaganda machine consistently characterizes this country as "imperialistic," a "warmonger," and a participant in war crimes. The Communist propaganda effort within this country, implemented primarily through the dissemination of thousands of publications, is designed — by playing on the hopes and fears of the American people — to subvert the United States by undermining its foreign policy and Military Establishment.
