Today's Patreon harkens back to Eugene Lyons, an extraordinarily candid truth-teller and star of America Betrayal (introductory excerpt below). I suppose the post-Thanksgiving subtext is all about what you can and can't say, what you should and shouldn't say, and how silence is and always has been, quite literally, death.

From American Betrayal, pp. 95-99

Two extraordinary and very different works by journalist Eugene Lyons take us a little closer to the answer. One is The Red Decade (1941), “an informal account of Bolshevism in our country,” as he described it, and the other is Assignment in Utopia (1937), his memoir of his personal odyssey from committed fellow traveler of Communism...

The following is a column by the late Vladimir Bukovsky, which ran in the Ukrainian publication Gordon back in June 2016. The English translation is courtesy Gates of Vienna. 

In this essay, Bukovsky attempts to re-introduce the human brain to the notion that life is not simply a choice between the binarian Either/Or -- either Russia / or NATO. 

As recent events show, he was not successful -- although his arguments made all the sense in the world. 

Not that the world wants to make sense.

Bukovsky: As soon as Ukraine got rid of USSR’s yoke, it started asking to join the EU. This is incredibly dumb!

American Betrayal includes an unforgettable "lost" scene from our past: when Rep. Martin Dies, the founding chairman (1938) of the House Un-American Activities Committee, runs into Sen. Joseph McCarthy shortly before McCarthy began his investigations into rampant Communist subversion of the federal government in 1950. 

This meeting is recounted in a section of Chapter 3 recounting the deep bitterness of the investigators, such as House Committe on Un-American Activities' Robert E. Stripling, and the witnesses, such as Whittaker Chambers, who labored to expose the secret, massive Moscow-directed intelligence army of traitors that, in effect, occupied the halls of power in Washington (London, Berlin, Tokyo, Paris ...). For their efforts -- for which history still hasn't caught up with the record and rewarded them -- they were vilified by poisonous Communist-led smear campaigns. This they were never prepared for.

What was that, anyway? Join me at Patreon for my midterm "selection" report, including a bunch of dots connecting back to 2016. 

Election fraud, we hardly knew ye.



One of the most salacious displays of J6 Porn as purveyed by our tormentors is the war cry "Kill him with his own gun." These are the words DC-cop-turned-CNN-pundit Michael Fanone claims he heard chanted, screamed at him by a surging crowd of protestors -- "insurrectionists" -- at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, the day Congress rubber-stamped the presidential election stolen from the People on November 3, 2020. As far as I know, no recording of this alleged chant has ever aired; just Fanone's account of it.

With this claim Fanone made headlines around the world, became a media darling, opened the January 6 Committee hearings, and also titled Chapter 13 of his recently released memoir, Hold the Line: The Insurrection and One Cop's Battle to Save the Soul of America....
