Which Side Are You On?

Praise be to Nero’s Neptune
the Titanic sails at dawn
and everybody’s shouting
“Which side are you on?”

—Bob Dylan, “Desolation Row”

In a February 23, 2022, Washington Examiner piece titled, “China’s support for Russia turns Ukraine into battleground for new world order,” foreign affairs reporter Joel Gehrke writes:

China has given “tacit approval” for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s latest invasion of Ukraine, in the judgment of U.S. officials, as part of a joint effort to undermine the institutions that American and allied leaders established to minimize conflict in the decades following World War II.

“Russia and the PRC also want a world order,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said Wednesday. “But this is an order that is and would be profoundly illiberal. ... It is an order that is, in many ways, destructive rather than additive.”

 

Today, I sat in on a discussion by some of the key thinkers involved in the American side on the upkeep of the Japan-U.S. alliance, and the discussion there also focused heavily on the situation in Ukraine. The American-led order in East Asia must be strengthened, was the consensus of the liberal internationalists who took part in the discussion. If only Ukraine had been part of NATO, the professors and former ambassadors lamented, it might not have been overrun by Russia. If only Ukraine had been an ally of the United States, they sighed, before suggesting, in closing, that Japan remain “in lockstep with Washington” as the Ukraine crisis unfolds.

Lockstep with Washington. A new world order. We hear these kinds of things a lot, and are certain to hear them more as the crisis in Ukraine unfolds. What is alliance with the West worth, though? What has the liberal world order wrought that is worth saving?

This show of solidarity by the Biden administration with infanticidal crusaders worldwide came barely a month after the same administration surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban.

To put it another way, what lives has the liberal world order saved? In September of last year, for example, the “President” Biden administration declared abortion to be an “international human right.” Writing at the excellent C-Fam outlet, Stefano Gennarini reports:

The Biden administration has endorsed a Democrat bill that declares abortion is an international human right. This makes Biden the first U.S. President ever to do so.

The White House released a statement “strongly” supporting the “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021” last week. The bill, HR 3755, follows the recommendations of UN bureaucrats and includes language that elevates abortion as an international human right.

The bill reads, “International human rights law recognizes that access to abortion is intrinsically linked to the rights to life, health, equality and non-discrimination, privacy, and freedom from ill-treatment.”

The bill cites the opinions of UN human rights experts who “have found that legal abortion services, like other reproductive health care services, must be available, accessible, affordable, acceptable, and of good quality.”

Biden’s Democratic predecessors in the White House, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, both supported access to abortion as a policy matter both at home and abroad, including through support for international policies on “reproductive health.”

Obama Secretary of State Hillary Clinton famously said, “reproductive health includes abortion.”

George Soros-backed globalists are already insisting that the United States take in Ukrainian refugees (fleeing, to put it accurately, from the inevitable effects of the Potomac Jihadists’ ability to destroy countries and cause endless death and war).

This show of solidarity by the Biden administration with infanticidal crusaders worldwide came barely a month after the same administration surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban, and almost exactly twenty years after another gang of internationalists—the caliphate restorationists sitting cross-legged in the Taliban’s tents—killed about as many people in downtown Manhattan and at the Pentagon and over Pennsylvania as Democrat abortionists kill on any given day in the United States. What is this liberal world order? Cui bono?

It certainly isn’t the average citizen. In the wake of the caliphate restorationists’ jihad terror strike on Washington power, the Potomac Jihadists inside the Beltway—including their many apologists in academia and the media, some of whom I listened to just this morning as they lauded alliance with Washington—called for all-out holy war against the competition. The Potomac Jihadists invaded Iraq, installed a puppet government there and in hapless Afghanistan, and commenced a barrage of drone strikes and counter-insurgency measures which killed many of the enemies of Washington’s distinctly unsavory “allies” and “partners,” such as the governments of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The drone strikes kill everyday working people, too, mothers and children asleep in adjacent buildings or inside a wrongly-targeted house or car. Hundreds of thousands killed by missile, sanction, bullet, or abortionist in places most Americans have never heard of and couldn’t find on a map.

Cooler heads in NATO were appalled that Nuland and the Potomac Jihadists were staging a power-play in the backyard of the former Soviet Empire.

Death for babies by scalpel at the Planned Parenthood pop-up clinic in the Middle East or Africa, or Detroit. Death for their mothers and fathers by drone. Death for whoever is left over by Wuhan virus. All funded by the Potomac Jihadists. For liberty. For freedom. For democracy.

The Potomac Jihadists fomented and took part in social upheaval and violent revolution in many other places besides their FOB stomping grounds. There have been airstrikes, secret incursions, CIA operations, torture sessions, and the occasional drone strike in places like Libya, Niger, Yemen, Syria, and, yes, Ukraine. The same Potomac Jihadists who saw the Tuskegee Airmen and the citizens of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as fitting subjects for science experiments now claim the right to arrange the geopolitical chessboard to their liking. And yet, when news breaks of Vladimir Putin’s outrages, the innocent among the American electorate stand astonished at how anyone could dare interfere in the inner workings of Ukraine.

Joe Biden himself did just this when he was vice president.

Even worse was the same administration’s coup in Ukraine, in which an anti-Russian puppet was installed in Kiev, a la the Potomac Jihadists’ modus operandi in many other capitals around the world. Victoria Nuland, a woman whose ice-water cruelty is a match for Putin’s own, ran the coup, Potomac style. Nuland was the Potomac Jihadists’ ambassador to NATO during the last years of the George W. Bush administration—a good example of how the Potomac Jihadists always lance under the banner of permanent worldwide “liberal” holy war, regardless of whether they wear a Team D or Team R patch on their lapel.

You don’t get to choose your leader in the Middle East, you don’t get to choose your leader in Eastern Europe, and you sure as hell don’t get to choose your leader in Arizona or Wisconsin.

Cooler heads in NATO were appalled that Nuland and the Potomac Jihadists were staging a power-play in the backyard of the former Soviet Empire. Nuland didn’t care. She kicked the hornet’s nest anyway. The fruits of that wild abandon and disregard for political reality are on view today, as mangled bodies lie in the Ukrainian streets, blown to bits by Russian missiles raining down in answer to Nuland and her fellow jihadists’ provocations. Nuland isn’t in any danger, though. She’s safe at the State Department, working on bringing the “new American century” to other beneficiaries around the world. On and on it goes. The “Washington merry-go-round,” not of gossip but of gruesome bloodsport.

One of the places getting the “new American century” treatment is the United States. Foreign countries are not the only locales where Potomac Jihadists ply their trade. They ran a coup against the last duly elected president of the United States, beginning before he even entered office and continuing through two sham impeachments and an ongoing Stalinist “January 6” purge against anyone who dared support him. Who was behind this coup? A former Secretary of State and the all-time world champion of Potomac Jihad. You don’t get to choose your leader in the Middle East, you don’t get to choose your leader in Eastern Europe, and you sure as hell don’t get to choose your leader in Arizona or Wisconsin. The Potomac Jihadists decide for you. And if you choose wrong, you run a good chance of going to jail.

So let us now mount our mechanized fleet and ride into battle, to save our sacred democracy. To Ukraine, comrades! Every vote must count!

Rome—the Axis of Feeble—left the old religion in the dust decades ago. They’ve moved on to transgender hormone treatments, rainforest pantheism, and climate change now.

This absurdity dizzies the conscience. Who is there who still speaks the truth? You might think that there would be one voice of moral probity left in the world, coming from the Vatican. But you would be wrong. Rome—the Axis of Feeble—left the old religion in the dust decades ago. They’ve moved on to transgender hormone treatments, rainforest pantheism, and climate change now. The Vatican had the chance to speak up for Christians in Hong Kong and inside the People’s Republic of China, but the Axis of Feeble did and said nothing. (Well, not exactly nothing. The Vatican did sell the Christians out for money.)

The American bishops put on their big hats and walked up and down the aisles of Newchurch services, keeping delicate silence. The Axis of Feeble fell into line behind satanic vaccines made of dismembered children. The Axis of Feeble had no opinion about the coup which the Potomac Jihadists ran in Washington, or elsewhere in the world. Money in the basket, people. Don’t listen to conspiracy theorists criticizing Rome. Strike up the guitar players, Newchurch, and keep the Israelites from grumbling!

Justin Trudeau sends his goons to trample Native elderly women in the streets of a once-free country, and for a few days the American electorate frowns at Ottawa. The next week, the same Justin Trudeau calls for sanctions against a foreign government accused of oppressing its people and invading the land of another country and suddenly it is as though the Stalinists of the Great White North have disappeared.

People accuse the Russian Orthodox clergy of being complicit in Putin’s expansionism abroad and repression of free speech at home. Never did a Russian despot have such a pliant group of holymen as the Potomac Jihadists have in the Axis of Feeble.

Now that the Potomac Jihadists are on the march once again, Newchurch is on their side, as ever. We must do something about Ukraine. George Soros-backed globalists are already insisting that the United States take in Ukrainian refugees (fleeing, to put it accurately, from the inevitable effects of the Potomac Jihadists’ ability to destroy countries and cause endless death and war). The Newchurch chaplains scold the laity—borders are wicked! Repent of your patriotism, give way to the invader! More money in the basket—a special collection for the Potomac Jihad. Open borders, ruined societies, a real field hospital. Afghan “refugees” with child brides in America. Guatemalan “refugees” fleeing a society that the Potomac Jihadists destroyed during the Eisenhower administration. Let us make more of a mess. Time is greater than space. In the meantime, live in fear, for the social order is a racist and fascist privilege which only bombs and currency manipulation can cure. More money in the basket, Newchurchers. Let us all hold hands and sing. More cowbell! More guitar!

Potomac Jihadists invade societies, bringing misery and inhuman cruelty as the gift basket of globalist-internationalist liberalism. (Abortion, “gay marriage,” transgender mutilations of young bodies, critical race theory and other corrosive chemicals in the cultural Marxism locker)

Remnant readers will already know how this cycle works. Potomac Jihadists invade societies, bringing misery and inhuman cruelty as the gift basket of globalist-internationalist liberalism. (Abortion, “gay marriage,” transgender mutilations of young bodies, critical race theory and other corrosive chemicals in the cultural Marxism locker—all of this and more can be yours if you will just say the password “rainbow” and let the globalist-internationalist liberals into your homeland.) The society which accepts the malign influence of the Potomac Jihadists rots. As it does, the Potomac Jihadists take advantage of the turmoil to install a leader pliant to their bidding. (Precisely what happened in Kiev in 2014. Precisely what happened in Washington in November of 2020.) The endless stream of refugees from the Potomac Jihadists’ globalist wars arrive by ship, plane (often chartered by the Potomac Jihadists themselves), or on foot into the liberal-suicidal West. Society breaks down further, providing the pretext for the globalist-internationalist liberals to practice in their own countries what they have been perfecting in everyone else’s. Newchurch runs interference with legislators and the media.

Those who don’t read The Remnant are much less likely to see what is going on, however. Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, sends his goons to trample Native elderly women in the streets of a once-free country, and for a few days the American electorate frowns at Ottawa. Not good, that trampling of people with horses! Trudeau went too far!

As we speak, a trucker convoy, inspired by the heroes of the Canadian Resistance, is working its way across the United States, headed for Washington.

The next week, the same Justin Trudeau calls for sanctions against a foreign government accused of oppressing its people and invading the land of another country (perhaps forgetting that the main languages of Canada were not always English and French), and suddenly it is as though the Stalinists of the Great White North have disappeared. Now we are talking about NATO, and NATO is the good guys. Not good, that rocketing of cities with missiles! Putin went too far!

As we speak, a trucker convoy, inspired by the heroes of the Canadian Resistance, is working its way across the United States, headed for Washington. The Potomac Jihadists are calling out the National Guard. When the truckers arrive in DC and it comes time for the vaxxed-up clone army in Nancy Pelosi’s pay to shoot, guess where they will be aiming? Not at the ones who sign their paychecks. All that was settled after “January 6” and the subsequent vax-purge campaign. Potomac Jihad rolls on. The men and women who deliver the food and materials that keep us alive are now racists, fascists, misogynists, and “standing with swastikas.” Globalists vs. the people on the streets of America and Canada, globalists vs. the people on the streets of Iraq, globalists vs. the people on the streets of Ukraine.

When the truckers arrive in DC and it comes time for the vaxxed-up clone army in Nancy Pelosi’s pay to shoot, guess where they will be aiming?

But still there are those who cannot see.

You are with the Potomac Jihadists, or you are with Putin, or you are winning gold medals for the glory of Xi Jinping, or you prefer your nihilism in grittier textures and so you are running with the Molotov cocktail crowd burning down Black businesses in New York.

Or you are flipping through the channels at home and wondering when Rachel Maddow will come back on the air. Or Bill O’Reilly. It doesn’t make any difference.

Or, you are with Newchurch, hoping that the Axis of Feeble is going to consecrate Russia, as Our Lady of Fatima implored. The same Newchurch that went Justin Trudeau last year against the Catholic Mass. The same Newchurch that was globalist-internationalist before anyone had ever heard of George Soros. All you know is, you’d better not have anything to do with fringe elements like the SSPX.

Keep the global standard alive. Keep the liberal world order moving ahead. Hope for the best. And if Moscow or Beijing try to hijack the liberal world order, fight to defend it.

The Titanic is setting sail, my friends. Which side are you on?
