The Senior Advisor to President Trump is a man named Steve Bannon, he has the President’s ear. Mr. Bannon, formerly of Brietbart News, the mouthpiece of the Alt- Right, has in the past, proclaimed himself an avowed Leninist, a follower of Vladimir Lenin, first ruler of the Soviet Union. Lenin like the anarchists of his day, believed in the overthrow of all the current institutions of government and society, replacing them with institutions where power is supposedly devolved to the people. The Russian revolution of 1917 devolved into a single party authoritarian system using repression and torture to stay in power.
President Trump has issued Executive orders that certainly Lenin himself would be proud of, silencing branches of the Government from responding to citizen inquiries, ordering nonpartisan administrators to answer ‘loyalty questionnaires’ and firing career nonpartisan administrators and replacing them with unqualified ideologues. What is going on here? President Trump’s actions so far certainly follow the Lenin playbook. De legitimize the institutions of government, society and the press and control and undermine the centers of information and put people ideologically devoted to you in place.
One has to wonder, with Mr. Trumps ties to the Russians, (the Russians said they were in contact with the Trump campaign throughout the election cycle), and another Vladimir, are we witnessing a compromised President being handled from afar by the Vladimir of 2017? Mr. Trump has created for Mr. Bannon, a permanent seat on the National Security Council. A Leninist, is sitting on the National Security Council! Saint Reagan must be spinning in his grave! When one considers all this it seems very suspicious.
Until it is clear what the connections are between the Russians, Mr. Trump, his Senior Advisor, his Secretary of State, and his National Security Advisor, America should be on guard and be wary, be very wary.
The Vladimir of 2017 is every bit as dangerous as was the Vladimir of 1917, one hundred years ago. Let us not forget the threat posed by both.
