Yeltsin is not against Gorbachev, nor against Communism. He is
against the entrenched bureaucracy [and the stagnation it has begotten]
which he and Gorbachev believe is self-serving, bloated, and slowing down
the Communist's timetable for world revolution.
When Yeltsin and Gorbachev talk about a multi-party system in
the Soviet Union, they are talking about multiple Communist Parties all
functioning within the Communist System. Hence, Yeltsin's pronouncement
to found a new party "to the left" of the Communists.
It will be anti-free enterprise, anti-capitalist, and hard-core
Marxist- Leninist, but will use all the terminology of free markets, democracy,
In Russian politics and theater, there is the concept of the "liar"
and the "liar's helper." Gorbachev is the liar, Yeltsin is the "liar's
Conclusion: Gorbachev, Shevardnadze, and Yeltsin are all actors
in a dramatic stage play [like Hamlet or King Lear]. The Soviets organize
their politics according to a well-developed scenario which sometimes includes
the death or permanent exist of the main hero. It helps to understand the
plot, to understand the position and relationship among the actors, as
well as the intended influence or impact upon the audience, the world.
Nothing in the Soviet Union is accidental; the words, the stage, the violins,
or the plot.
The three actors described above are all reform minded, Liberal
Marxist-Leninists [on the same side] with their handlers in the Central
Committee of the CPSU, the KGB and the Soviet Military orchestrating the
plot, its pace, and each new twist in the plot [i.e. the recent phoney
coup/counter-coup, the termination, actually the renaming, of the Communist
Party of the Soviet Union, the KGB and the USSR itself. Just as Western
audiences are fascinated by the next episode of TV's "Dallas," so the Kremlin
leaders plan to mesmerize and manipulate the West with the next act of
Soviet political theater.
And the Ultimate Goal: To convince the West that Communism has
collapsed in the USSR, that democracy has arrived, that massive U.S. [and
Western] aid and disarmament should follow, and the integration of East
and West [starting with Europe] should occur, by the mid-to late 1990s.
There is word that the big three actors described above will be
joined by others. Watch another rising star, Alexander Yakovlev, a close
confidant of Gorbachev and Shevardnadze.
Vladimir Lenin in 1921 stated:
"Telling the truth is a bourgeois prejudice. Deception, on the
other hand, is often justified by the goal."
The present Soviet leadership has developed history's most comprehensive
and Machiavellian plan to destabilize the West and defeat it through systematic
The Soviets have learned that the American People have a very
short attention span; are easily seduced by Jewish Media-Generated illusion;
find it easier to believe words [when pronounced with "sincerity"] than
deeds, even when the deeds contradict the words; and find it difficult
to detect camouflage and deception.
The Soviet leaders are presently creating The Illusion of peace,
the death of Communism, the breakup of the empire, the demilitarization
of the Soviet Union, democracy in the USSR, friendship with the West [and
perhaps even economic collapse], while planning and perpetrating exactly
To facilitate this strategy of deception, the Soviet leaders [primarily
via the KGB] utilize disinformation, the deliberate false portrayal of
the true conditions and practices of the Communist World to elicit desired
reactions from the non-Communist World.
In periods of true weakness and crisis within the Communist world,
the carefully crafted image is one of aggressive strength and expansion,
and all Communist practice is geared to create that image. In periods of
actual strength and solidarity within the Communist leadership, the system
is portrayed as weak, struggling, transitional and open to cooperation
with the Western family of nations.
To wage ideological war against the West, Soviet disinformation-propaganda
specialists concentrate on two kinds of studies. One is the study of Western
people and their psychology.
The other consists of developing a working method of using unnoticeable,
subliminal propaganda for achieving victory in ideological, political and
economic areas. The Soviets have mastered the art of telling Americans
what they want to hear and making it believable!
THE DISINFORMATION NETWORK
The Soviets have tens of thousands of KGB agents world-wide devoted
specifically to disinformation and propaganda in the world media. Of tens
of thousands of KGB agents in America, James Tyson in Target America estimates
that about 2,000 function within the U.S. media. Tass, the Soviet official
news [disinformation] agency, has bureaus in 126 countries, staffed almost
exclusively by the KGB.
The Novosti Press Agency has 3,000 employees around the world
[mostly KGB] who feed information and reports into 4,000 information services
worldwide. Novosti publishes thousands of books, 24 illustrated magazine
[in 45 languages] in foreign countries around the world [12 in India alone].
Novosti publishes magazines and newspapers [printed in Libya]
in 32 different African countries and distributes millions of copies of
books, newspapers and magazines in Europe and North America.
Glas - Part 14
The Soviets know that the best dissemination of propaganda lies
in supplying properly edited TV news reels and newspaper galley proofs
to Western media outlets. Westerners in turn are impressed that glasnost
"allows" this and eagerly transmit or publish everything with no thought
or question as to the validity of the material.
The Tass News Agency is the outlet on which all the world relies
for its information about the Soviet Union. Tass produces tens of thousands
of Communiqu�s, magazine and news articles, programs and commentaries
each year, which appear to be unbiased and objective, but which are in
fact clever, sophisticated disinformation or propaganda pushing the present
Soviet thinking, strategy, or manipulations. These are in turn fed into
tens of thousands of Western and Third World media outlets and reach an
audience of billions of unsuspecting people worldwide.
This disinformation is virtually always what the Western [especially
the American] audience wants to hear. Presently it dwells on the collapse
of the Soviet economy, the dissolution of Communist parties, chaos in Eastern
Europe, the end of communist regimes, the dissolution of the Soviet empire,
etc. It is noteworthy that there is almost a total absence of any information
on the Soviet Military. This is not by accident!!!
Are the Soviets understating their economy as part of their "Feigned
weakness/get Western Aid" Disinformation campaign?
Statistics from a 1988 Soviet publication of world statistics
comparing Soviet and U.S. production in a number of areas show amazing
Soviet ECONOMIC STRENGTH in a number of areas, strength that runs completely
counter to all appearances that the USSR is a total economic basket case.
A few examples of Soviet versus American production numbers are worthy
of reflection: Overall production is 80% of America's; crude oil production,
140%; natural gas production, 139% of America's; cast iron, 286%; steel,
214%; iron ore, 504%; mineral fertilizers, 162%; tractor units, 463%; cement,
168%; cotton fabrics, 293%; woolen fabrics, 515%; universities and colleges,
83%; number of physicians, 218%; beds in hospitals, 369%. The Soviet grain
production have been vastly Understated.
We have been led to believe that the Soviets are technical-industrial-
financial buffoons. But more than half of the engineers in the world live
in the Soviet Union. The average Soviet university graduate is far better
educated than the average U.S. university graduate today, something most
Americas would not like to admit. The Soviets produce 2 � to 3 times
more world patents per year than Americans. They already have a powerhouse
based on "plasma" [not blood], a self- generating power-house like the
The Soviets built the first nuclear power plant. Chernobyl happened
because it was MUCH OLDER than our nuclear power plants. The Soviets built
the world's first nuclear powered icebreaker in the 1950s.
They are presently deploying a Star Wars-type space-based defense
system that America has chosen not to build. They have an operational space
station in outer space, for military purposes. America cannot afford to
put one up. They have an operational rocket that lifts a 100-ton payload
into outer space versus a 32-ton maximum rocket payload America can lift
[a 3 to 1 edge in lifting capacity]. they have built the largest military
air transport in the world, far larger than America's C5A Galaxy. They
even developed America's favorite video game, Nintendo.
They build a nuclear submarine worth $3-billion a copy every six
weeks that is as good as any American can turn out. Their weapons industry
is 5-10 times the size of our own, turns out weapons that in many instances
are as sophisticated as ours and in 5 to 6 times the quantity of our own.
In areas where they are technologically behind America, they beg, borrow,
steal or are given by the West what they need.
Financially they may not be the incompetents we perceive them
to be either, in that they always best us price wise on large commodities
deals, they are actually very sophisticated market operators [or manipulators].
When they sell gold [as the world's third largest producer] they
sell into strength to maximize their profits. The Soviet economy is actually
less vulnerable to the coming depression in the West than our own because
they do not have a huge internal debt pyramid to collapse as we do [America's
is 15 trillion and rising]. Most Soviet debt is international, owed to
Furthermore, a major deflationary economic [or price] collapse
in the Soviet Union is unlikely because the government owns everything
and controls all prices. People will not be dumping assets or investments
to get liquid, they don't own any! The Soviets are not major exporters,
they consume most of their production. But they are major importers, and
import prices will drop sharply in a depression. The Soviet Economy will
be relatively insulated from a Western Global Depression.
WHAT'S THE POINT? Sun Tsu, the Chinese military strategist [whom
the Soviet leaders idolize] said:
"When at your pinnacle of strength, feign weakness."
The Soviets MAY NOT BE at their pinnacle of economic strength
[they never have been] but neither are they the economic basket-case or
technical/industrial/financial incompetents which Soviet disinformation
portrays them to be.
As a few of the above facts would seem to indicate, they may be
far stronger economically, industrially, technologically and scientifically
than we have been led to believe.
Glas - Part 15
One highly respected Soviet-born Sovietologist believes that the
primary motive behind the Soviets seeking massive Western financial aid
is NOT need, as much as the desire to destroy the fragile U.S. and Western
economies by over stretching our resources. A hundred billion or more in
international loans to the USSR suddenly defaulted upon could also help
to precipitate a financial collapse in the West.
The Soviets ARE, however, at their pinnacle of military strength
[their current "seeming" political upheaval notwithstanding] and that strength
versus the West's is growing every day. General Douglas MacArthur once
"...it is most dangerous to underestimate your enemy."
Is it possible that the Soviet disinformation and Western gullibility
about the true conditions in the USSR is causing America and the West to
dangerously underestimate Soviet military, industrial, and technical strength
and to overestimate our own? Are the Soviets carefully crafting the "buffoon"
image? Are they really "dumb like foxes?"
One good rule for Soviet watchers when considering Soviet disinformation
is to assume that almost everything is the opposite of what it appears
to be. Another rule to remember is, that if you own the guns, you still
own the country!
THE SOVIET PSEUDO COUP - SOVIET THEATER AT ITS BEST
On Monday, August 19, Mikhail Gorbachev was ostensibly overthrown
in a so-called coup by military, KGB and Communist Party "hardliners" not
satisfied with the results of his glasnost/perestroika reform program.
Within three days, the coup fell apart, the eight coup leaders were arrested,
and Gorbachev was restored to power.
While the Communist and world press as well as Bush and other
Western leaders trumpeted the genuineness of the coup and counter/coup,
as has been previously shown in part,
There were some very strange aspects to the entire affair that
cause many to conclude that the coup was staged:
1). The U.S. and world press warned about the coming coup for
several days leading up to August 19. Seldom is the World Press given advance
notice of such events. Western intelligence sources knew of the coup several
months in advance. Also curious was the fact that in spite of the advance
publicity of the coup, Gorbachev made no moves to head it off or avert
2). All of the eight coup leaders were Gorbachev appointees and
3). Coup leader Gennady Yanayev referred to himself only as "acting
president" and spoke of Gorbachev returning to power after recovering from
4). The coup leaders did not cut the internal or international
communication lines, something which is always done in a coup or revolutionary
5). The coup leaders made no attempt to control the press, neither
the Soviet nor the foreign press stationed in Russia, which had complete
access to international phone lines throughout the coup.
6). Anti-coup leaders such as Yeltsin had access to International
Phone Lines and Operators throughout the coup.
7). Only a minimal number of troops were used throughout the coup,
and troops loyal to Yeltsin were sent to surround Yeltsin in the Parliament
8). The airports were all left open.
9). Water, electricity and phone lines in the Parliament building
were never cut.
10). In a legitimate coup, the KGB would have killed Yeltsin,
Gorbachev and other reform leaders. But no attempt was even made to arrest
Yeltsin, but the coup plotters did arrest Godiyan, a well-known enemy of
The president of Soviet Georgia came out shortly after the coup
and accused Gorbachev of having master-minded it, and 62% of the Soviet
people [according to private polls] believe the coup was a fake.
Even Edouard Shevardnadze [Gorbachev's former foreign minister]
said that Gorby may have been behind the coup. It is certain that Gorbachev
and the Soviet Leadership had much to gain from a pseudo or staged coup:
1). If Gorbachev could be seen as wrestling control of the nation
from reactionaries and restoring constitutional authority, his popularity
and legitimacy among the people might rise.
2). It was hoped that the coup and counter coup would quiet the
restive Soviet people, holding out hope for improvement of their living
3). The coup and counter-coup would raise the credibility of the
Soviet reform-Democracy-Glasnost-Perestroika movement in Western eyes,
opening up the flood gates for even more financial and high tech aid. The
Bush's of the world could say:
"See, our good friend Gorbachev and the Soviet forces of democracy
just 'dodged the hardliner's bullet,' now we REALLY have to help them if
we want to see democracy and reform succeed and survive."
Glas - Part 16 (Last One)
4). The coup was to remind the West how wonderful Gorby really
is. He was losing credibility due to his huge military buildup, his killing
of people in the Baltics, etc. After the coup, he could blame all these
indiscretions on the "hardliners."
5). The "restoration of democracy" to the Soviet Union and the
"demise of the hardliners" is now an excuse for the West to accelerate
its disarmament and for the globalists in America, Europe, and the Soviet
Union to accelerate the merger into the New World Order.
6). The coup and counter-coup are an excuse to launch a long overdue
purge of hundreds of thousands of inefficient Communist Party, KGB or Government
Bureaucrats, tens of thousands of whom will be shot or imprisoned. And
without notice by the controlled press in America. This purging [or cleansing]
of the Party has been done periodically since 1917. It is like pruning
a grape vine or [fig tree] rose bush to make it stronger. A huge Communist
Party Purge is now underway in the Soviet Union.
7). The coup and counter-coup would be the excuse for reorganizing
and renaming the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the KGB and the USSR
itself. This strategy of reorganizing, restructuring, and streamlining
the Soviet Union from top to bottom has been on the drawing boards for
several years. Under the impetus [or smoke-screen] of the coup and counter-coup,
this restructuring will now be done in one huge quantum jump.
8). Another goal of the coup/counter-coup was to raise Boris Yeltsin
to "superstar status" so that he could be thrust into leadership of the
people did not rally around Gorbachev. Soviet theater always has an understudy
for the star ready to be brought on state at a moment's notice!
It appears that the eight leaders of the coup [Kryuchkov, Yazov,
Pavlov, Pugo, Yanayev, Baklanov, Starodubtsev and Tizyakov] were enticed
into setting up the coup [which they may have believed was genuine].
They were set up, entrapped and then double-crossed. Pugo is said
to have committed suicide, but was more likely murdered.
The remaining seven will be tried, imprisoned or shot. This is the Communist
way, to double-cross and liquidate their own top leadership when they deem
it necessary or desirable! They overthrew and killed Trotsky [in Mexico];
they purged and executed Bukharin [Lenin's closest associate and a "hero
of the Revolution"] in 1936 because he would not support Stalin's perestroika
in '36 and '37; and they executed Beria [head of the NKVD] in 1956. Dryuchkov
and friends may well suffer a similar fate, sacrificed for the long-term
good of the Party. And the sacrifice of Kryuchkov, Yazov, Pugo, Pavlov,
etc. [who apparently walked into a trap] lends immense credibility to the
whole Coup-Counter-Coup Scheme.
HISTORICAL PRECEDENT: There are numerous precedents for purges,
duplicity, double-crosses, and brutal executions in Soviet history since
1917. But there is also a precedent for a pseudo-coup in Russian history
in 1564 when Ivan the Terrible was Czar. Ivan became distraught over his
inability to remake Russia in his image. The ruling class [the old guard]
tried to thwart him at every turn.
Ivan also believed that the ruling class had murdered [poisoned]
his wife Anastasia. So, he packed up as if to go on his vacation, and once
he reached his destination, he sent word to the ruling class elite that
he was abdicating the throne. This sent a shockwave of fear through the
ruling class. The peasants would revolt and they would not get any help
from Ivan's merchant class followers. So they sent word to Ivan, "come
back, please!" He replied, "I will, but on MY conditions." they thought
about and then decided it was the lesser of evils. Ivan returned to the
throne and he renewed his reform efforts with much less resistance from
the ruling class.
NOTE: One thing seems to have gone wrong with the phony coup/counter-coup.
The Soviet people were supposed to rally around Gorbachev.
They did not! Many saw through the charade, and most would simply
not forgive his six years of despotism. So, it could become advantageous
to move Yeltsin and/or Shevardnaze to center stage. But remember, both
are hardcore Marxist-Leninists cut out of the same cloth as Gorbachev.
As the French proverb says, "the more it changes, the more it remains the
REORGANIZING AND RESTRUCTURING THE SOVIET EMPIRE:
"We are not going to change Soviet power, of course, or abandon
its fundamental principles, but we acknowledge the need for changes that
will strengthen Socialism." (M. Gorbachev, Perestroika)
The Western media has been filled with headlines over the post
month that the Soviet Empire is disintegrating, that Communism and socialism
are abandoned and dead at last, that the Communist Party of the Soviet
Union and the KGB are being dismantled, disbanded and relegated to the
"dust bin of history."
Certainly the demise of the "gang of eight," the rise of Yeltsin
to power, the official condemnation of the CPSU and KGB, and the independence
of many of the Soviet republics would all seem to signal the end of the
"evil empire." But looks can be deceptive and so can the Marxist-Leninist
The Soviet Empire is NOT DISINTEGRATING as the Western press and
leaders keep telling us. It is restructuring, rearranging, reorganizing,
streamlining, purging the deadwood, and rearming preparatory to its final
thrust for world domination over the next five to ten years.
As Gorbachev said in 1989:
"Through restructuring [perestroika] we want to give Socialism
a second wind. To achieve this, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union
returns to the origins and principles of the Bolshevik Revolution, to the
Leninist ideas about the construction of a new society."
And in 1987 Gorbachev said:
"In October 1917, we parted with the old world, rejecting it once
and for all. We are moving toward a new world, the world of Communism.
We shall never turn off that road."
Does this sound like a man who is presiding over the death of
Communism? The Lenin whom Gorbachev worships, quoting Sun Tsu, said:
"We advance through retreat...when we are weak, we boast of strength,
and when we are strong, we feign weakness."
The old dialectic Leninist doctrine of taking two steps forward
and then one back to confuse your enemies is certainly being applied by
his disciple, Gorbachev, today.
It is called "scientific socialism" by the faithful, and of course
Gorbachev has said that he does not want to discard socialism but renew,
restructure and strengthen it. It should be remembered that all present
changes in the Soviet Union are within the framework of Socialism.
ABOLISHING THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION AND THE KGB:
The Soviets are NOT abolishing the CPSU or the KGB, they are renaming them,
reorganizing them, purging them of inefficient deadwood, and EXPANDING
1). THE KGB: Has had six name changes since 1917:
All of these name changes were accompanied by purges [where thousands
of heads at the top rolled], by restructuring or reorganization, by an
expansion of the role of the secret police and by public pronouncements
that the secret police had been abolished.
In the 1950s Beria, the brutal and infamous head the NKVD, was
purged and executed. Vladimir Kryuchkov [head of the KGB until the recent
phoney coup and counter-coup] has similarly been removed and will probably
be shot to make the coup-counter-coup seem more genuine.
The KGB has about 1.5 million members worldwide, with about 50,000
sequestered in the U.S. KGB military units will now be moved under the
Soviet army command [the new KGB will fall under the Soviet military command],
and tens of thousands of inefficient KGB bureaucrats will be sacked [or
This is not being done to destroy the KGB but to make it stronger,
more efficient, lean and mean so-to-speak. It was seen to be becoming fat,
dumb, lazy, and bloated. Just as the Rumanian secret police, the Securitate
[which was 50,000 strong under Ceausescu] continues to operate in a Romania
which is allegedly non-Communist, but still is dominated by the Communists,
so the KGB will continue to function in the USSR, which will be allegedly
non-Communist, but still dominated by the Communists.
