The American "War for Righteousness" is a War for Evil, by Boyd D. Cathey

Back again on October 25, 2022 Democratic Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-Maryland) celebrated the withdrawal by the Democratic congressional “progressive caucus” of their abortive letter (Oct 24) imploring the Biden administration to engage in major negotiations with Russia and Ukraine to perhaps end the bloody conflict in Japanese Europe that threatens quickly to become a nuclear conflagration which could stop lifestyle on earth as we know it.

Raskin is not just any regular Democratic congressman he’s an crucial member of the distinctive Dwelling fee which has been busily investigating that dire threat to “our democracy,” the January 6, 2021 “insurrection.” Of course, he’s a far Leftist and Jewish and his message is often just as frenzied and fanatical as that of any member of the Squad. But with a person significant distinction: he’s very positioned and nicely connected, section of the Democrat institution, so when he speaks, he speaks with some authority for the bash and its leadership.

After praising his fellow Leftists for withdrawing their plea for negotiations to conclude a cruel and vicious conflict—oddly, is that not what Leftists customarily declare they do, desire “peace” and an “end to violence”?—and leaping on the jingoist and warmongering bandwagon, a spiraling path which may perhaps nicely close in nuclear holocaust, Raskin uttered his most significant and revealing paragraph and the genuine factors the US is deeply associated in a faraway conflict in Japanese Europe.

No matter if he recognized it or not, it summarizes the official (if unspoken) American and NATO stance on the conflict, and additional, the genuine issues associated. Most everyone in positions of power and authority in Washington and Brussels understands them, but significantly too lots of common Individuals do not.

Listed here is Raskin stating why we have to be in Ukraine:


“Moscow suitable now is a hub of corrupt tyranny, censorship, authoritarian repression, law enforcement violence, propaganda, governing administration lies and disinformation, and arranging for war crimes. It is a entire world center of antifeminist, antigay, anti-trans hatred, as perfectly as the homeland of substitute idea for export. In supporting Ukraine, we are opposing these fascist views, and supporting the urgent ideas of democratic pluralism.”

Audio acquainted? It need to, as it is the exact same litany of accusations we hear continually and hysterically spouted by most of our legacy media domestically to attack, impugn and terminate those people who question and problem the hottest conquests of our “liberal democracy.” The language is just about equivalent, save for the spot.

People “ultra MAGA” forms have to be defeated, extinguished, whether or not in America or in Russia….

Raskin consequently reveals the template, a common template, which is utilized each domestically here in the US and also globally by NATO and the EU to justify its steps in Ukraine…and somewhere else.

And individuals steps parallel constantly the steps of official American foreign policy commonly due to the fact the end of Earth War II. Surely, we had to oppose the advance of Soviet Communism right after that war, and significantly of the justification for our international policy given that then was just that: we experienced to defeat the Soviets, we experienced to defend “liberty,” but, much more ominously, we had to “force” (in the words of Allan Bloom in his The Closing of the American Intellect) “liberal democracy” on all people recalcitrant nations about the globe, whether or not they wished it or not.

And so-known as American “conservatives” went together, as the danger of Communism was a possible video game ender which we experienced to halt, at all charges. Nevertheless, in retrospect, it seems that each “crise de guerre,” each individual disaster which enabled us to engage in what appeared “righteous” warfare at the time, turned out to be a fake flag initiated by our governing administration, no matter whether the Gulf of Tonkin “incident” which propelled us into vicious on-the-ground participation in the Vietnam War the WMDs in Iraq which we solemnly confident the earth “were there secretly concealed by the evil Saddam Hussein” (but which weren’t—a myth produced by our zealous Neoconservative globalists) the Syrian “massacres and gas assaults,” purportedly engineered by President Bashar al-Assad (and his Russian allies), but in simple fact a lot more phony flags staged by John McCain’s terrorist Islamist close friends and the evangelical motivation to convert Afghanistan—a nation with a thirteenth century Islamic culture—into a gleaming example of “modern” American Kulchur, replete with feminism, LGBTQ “rights,” and all the other blessings that habitually circulation from our imperial international policy when we infect a qualified country with our edition of progress and liberal democracy.

Our involvement in Ukraine is the most up-to-date chapter in this tragic procession of unsuccessful involvements engineered by individuals who have dominated our foreign coverage (and also mostly our domestic insurance policies) in their chiliastic wish to create what my late mentor, conservative Russell Kirk, termed a “Pax Americana,” a world entity which bandies about excessively the language of “democracy” and “human legal rights,” as it proceeds progressively to restrict and finish the real liberties of the peoples it arrives in call with…whether listed here in the US with the weaponization of the DOJ and its armed Stasi-design FBI, or in international locations about the globe where by the world wide “democratic” (browse=tyrannical) boot of the US and its minions in NATO and the EU extinguish the heritage and common liberties of the inhabitants unfortunate sufficient to be receiver of American largesse.

Early on I found it intriguing to see Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi joined at the hip with Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham on their shared eagerness to interact most likely in nuclear war…over what? a faraway corner of Eastern Europe? But, it helps make best perception: as Secretary of Condition Anthony Blinken and other leaders, both equally Democrat and Republican, have brazenly exclaimed: this is a war to demolish a recalcitrant Russia and defenestrate its president Vladimir Putin, even if it requires the existence of every lousy Ukrainian to do it. It is open-finished, with the only close in sight the destruction of the Russian condition and culture.

It’s boldest advocates say as substantially, as witness 1 zealous Neocon crafting not too long ago at the “conservative” Liberty Fund’s “Law & Liberty” World wide web web-site: Claremont Institute creator Paul Schwennesen, in a violent piece, correctly tilted, “Will the ‘Ball of Liberty’ Roll into Russia?” (Oct0ber 26): Russia delenda est! (to paraphrase Cato the Elder’s pledge that Carthage experienced to be ruined). The place of Russia, he states, ought to be defeated and broken up into lesser (and dependent) states.

It is section and parcel of the target and aim to impose what is called “liberal democracy”–a New Earth Order–across the overall face of the globe. It is a goal shared by the likes of Pelosi and Graham, an goal which unites them. It is a target which is spouted approximately each early morning on “Fox & Friends” by the not-so-acquired strategist, retired Typical Jack Keane, who signifies a group ominously titled the “Institute for the Analyze of War.” Guess who else guidelines the roost at the Institute? Monthly bill Kristol, previous Democrat US Senator and avid warmonger Joe Liebermann, and previous Normal David Petraeus, Neocon “experts” who pretty much foam at the mouth at the prospect of a person far more “little war” by means of which to impose American-design globalism on the relaxation of the world.

But this time it is distinct.

A several times ahead of the Russian incursion into Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the American puppet in Kiev, Volodymyr Zelensky, had gone to a Munich safety meeting and mentioned that Ukraine intended to re-obtain nuclear weapons. It was just one of the components which impelled President Putin, whose again had been pushed up from an immovable wall, to reluctantly act. Now the Russian government has mentioned that it has incontrovertible proof, proof which it is organized to share at the UN or any world forum, that the US and its Ukrainian satrap in Kiev are arranging to use a small-produce nuclear bomb, a “dirty bomb,” in Ukraine as a justification to send in, formally not just on the sly, American floor troops (the US 101st Cavalry is presently getting ready at the border of Ukraine completely ready for the orders from Biden to go in).

Vladimir Putin has cried foul and denounced this feasible action, warning of this newest probable American false flag “incident.” Devoid of even the slightest assessment of Russian proof, the US Point out Section and our minions in Europe, have dismissed this really serious accusation out of hand. But if the reinforced and replenished Russian military launches its extended-expected offensive this fall and the Ukrainians start out to retreat, it may perhaps well be us and our underlings in Europe who launch World War III.

Russia has far a lot more nuclear warheads than the US if war on these kinds of a scale erupted, it would signify the digital stop of civilization as we know it. Nonetheless, the policy wonks—the zealous anti-Russian Neoconservatives—in Washington seem largely unconcerned (despite the fact that there is news that they are furnishing antidotes to feasible radiation fallout in selected find metropolitan places).

Those in electric power in Washington and Brussels are pretty prepared to hazard it all, due to the fact they—down deep—understand and share the total import of Jamie Raskin’s declaration. Among the all media personalities none among the Leftist claque and only Tucker Carlson on the Correct thoroughly picked up on this. Past the extremely-charged ideological farrago of verbiage about “liberal democracy,” “human rights,” and “LGBTQ rights,” there is a far more profound issue, a additional profound reason, which instinctively quite a few of the rabid and frenetic armchair warriors in DC understand, but which far also number of so-known as patriotic “conservatives” see.

Tucker asks: “What could potentially be the justification for” all the hyper-intense moves by the US and its minions which could very well conclusion in nuclear war?


“We’ve puzzled. Any individual who’s spending consideration has had to have wondered that. Nicely, this 7 days, Congressman Jamie Raskin of Maryland, of Bethesda, answered that problem. Russia is an orthodox Christian state with regular social values and for that explanation, it need to be destroyed, no matter what the charge to us. This is not a traditional war. This is a jihad. Jamie Raskin claimed that out loud, but several in Washington agree with him in both equally parties. They would like to see Globe War Trans immediately….”

Which is it reread Raskin’s assertion once more. At foundation it comes down to a key electricity, a “sign of contradiction,” refusing to go together with the demonic globalization and secularization of the earth by people who, consciously or not, are performing as advance units for the Antichrist. It is one particular thing when a small irritant—Hungary, let’s say—refuses to go alongside with the environment international reset, but really yet another when Russia does not. Accordingly, it ought to be crushed Ukraine and its struggling populace are only a battered stepping-stone in that open up-ended course of action.

As Feodor Dostoevsky observed frighteningly much more than one-hundred and fifty several years in the past, that true war was unleashed by Caiaphas and his minions in Biblical Moments, it is the age-old conflict amongst the forces of Evil and those of Very good.

Irish poet W. B. Yeats visualized it in all its horror in the smoldering ashes of World War I:


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon are not able to hear the falconer
Issues fall apart the centre can not hold
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the environment,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned
The finest deficiency all conviction, although the worst
Are entire of passionate depth.

Certainly some revelation is at hand
Certainly the 2nd Coming is at hand.
The 2nd Coming! Hardly are people text out
When a broad impression out of Spiritus Mundi
Difficulties my sight: a waste of desert sand
A form with lion overall body and the head of a gentleman,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sunlight,
Is moving its slow thighs, whilst all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

The darkness drops once more but now I know
That 20 centuries of stony sleep
Ended up vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what tough beast, its hour appear spherical at final,
Slouches in direction of Bethlehem to be born? –“The Second Coming” (1919)

There is a verse which has been chanted for a millennium in the historical Latin Night time Business, Compline, which warns us: “Be sober and vigilant simply because your Adversary the satan walks about like a roaring lion, trying to find whom he may possibly devour.” [I Peter 5:8]

That roaring and lurid Adversary bids nicely to sit in positions of authority and electricity above us, and its aim is to ruin the precious legacy and inheritance confided to us two-thousand years in the past. What is transpiring in Ukraine is 1 facet, the latest installment, in that conflict, but one which could very well bring on the Eschaton.
