In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Russian cyber attack is just the tip of a massive and forgotten threat

From an article by Rebekah published Thursday in the Washington Times:

Russia’s recent mass-scale cyber intelligence operation, targeting multiple government agencies, corporations and think tanks, was a catastrophic event.

The Russians compromised vital U.S. infrastructure, defense and technology industries, and critical government agencies, such as the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense, State, Energy and Treasury. The attackers exhibited highly sophisticated tradecraft, exceptional operational stealth, and extreme patience and determination.

What very few Americans realize is that this is but a single page out of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war plan for defeating America. The success of this operation resulted from a failure to recognize the systemic Russian threat to the United States and treat it with the seriousness it requires. While the American leadership class is focused on the long-range threat from China and fantasies about Mr. Putin deputizing President Trump as a secret agent, the present and ongoing danger from the Kremlin is frighteningly minimized.

A close reading of unclassified, often highly technical, Russian-language sources has convinced me that Russia expects eventual war with the United States and is preparing for it.

  1. Yes, Russia is a dangerous enemy. We have numerous enemies which include China, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Turkey and Cuba. Unfortunately, these bad actors are getting help from those in our own country who seek to destroy the foundations of our Republic as envisioned by our Founders and established in our Constitution. As a result, in our country, we are now seeing actions by the Main Stream Media, Social Media and Big Tech to “control” the news by using various nefarious means. We now have elections that are manipulated to get results other than what the people want. Our universities and other institutions are silencing “opposite” points of view. All these are characteristics of dictatorships such as those of the countries mentioned above. But, I believe, God willing, we will overcome these adversities. We’ve overcome adversities before; we’ll do it again.

  2. I just read Rebekah’s Washington Times article in its entirety; I strongly recommend it be read in its entirety by readers of this site. The article is an eye opener and provides significant insight into Putin’s nefarious actions. As a side note, I am very much looking forward to buying and reading Rebekah’s book, scheduled to be released this summer, about Russia, Putin and his shenanigans.

  3. The swamp is too obsessed with demonizing Trump and other good people to be capable of recognizing real threats, much less being capable of responsible decisions. I fear for our culture more and more every year. It’s already half-way lost.
