An introduction by “Doc” and links to all four of his articles about
American Healthcare in Crisis.
“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication, somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication, and a government bureaucracy to administer it.” – Thomas Sowell
We are truly at a crossroads in American healthcare. The seemingly endless layers of regulations and requirements, as well as the overhead for the bureaucracy itself, are crushing it.
Our healthcare system has become rife with corruption and inefficiency. Special interests lobby politicians to force you to buy their services and pay for subsidies, while politicians leverage their influence to garner votes and enrich themselves and their friends.
Doctors and patients have been reduced to being mere commodities.
When Obamacare was being pushed through Congress, we were told premiums would go down; that we would get to keep our doctor; and that visits to the ER would decrease. Exactly the opposite happened. The government has exacerbated, if not created, this crisis.
Introduction to “North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.”
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Said by Ronald Reagan – quotations by Ronald Reagan 40th president of US (1911 – 2004)
We must do our best to stand up for freedom, and protect our children from the “one world” “godless” teachings that are being infused into the minds of students in almost all public schools, and in many private schools — including Christian schools and other religious schools. It begins in nurseries, pre-schools and day-cares – and continues in all forms of public (and even private) education – even at Christian universities and seminaries. The popular media in our country continues the narrative of one world without God.
Eliminate recognition of the existence and intervention of God, and you have totalitarian states.
A friend of mine who escaped Communist China tells a similar story as the young lady from North Korea — this similar story exists across the world — repeated accounts of the fear, brain-washing, and brutality like this young Korean witnessed and experienced as she grew up under Communism in China.
North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.
Listen to this dear young lady who is a refugee from North Korea. Her account is heartbreaking…and a foreboding warning to us. Centralized control leads to uncontrolled abuses.
“With President Trump executing missile strikes in Syria and radical Islamic terrorism being as big a threat as it ever has been, we need to understand how these oppressive regimes and extremist ideologies got started and are empowered. Working with Dangerous Documentaries, director Judd Saul and conservative commentator Trevor Loudon have compiled a team of researchers who have uncovered the history of the Soviet Union’s meddling in Middle Eastern politics, creating a new enemy for the United States, and have learned that Russia’s continuing alliance with Islamists is forwarding a radical domestic threat in America today.
“Soviet Islam” is the second episode in the five-part “America Under Siege” documentary web-series releasing over the course of 2017. Each episode profiles the influence of radical Marxists on various segments of American society. Continue reading →
One of my goals is to better understand what is really going on in our country, and in the world.
“The United States is heading for trouble and the key to understand it in all its complexity is to learn what really happened in the period 1989 and 1991.”
— Robert Buchar (Political refugee – born and raised in Czechoslovakia —
maker of the flim The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story.)
FP: Robert Buchar, welcome to Frontpage Interview. Congratulations on your new documentary film.
Buchar: Thank you Jamie for the opportunity to talk about it. It took eight years to finish but it’s finally done.
FP: Let us begin with this question: Why should we talk about the fall of communism? Why does it matter?
Buchar: Right, why talk about something that happened some 23 years ago? The word communism isn’t even in our vocabulary anymore and the new generation has no idea what it even means.
And yet, communism eliminated over 100 million people during seventy years of its existence. That’s enough bodies to cover the equator of our planet when placing bodies side by side. When communism ‘collapsed’ in 1989, the media never raised the question of where those responsible for all the atrocities were. We didn’t hear anyone in the media asking where all the communists disappeared to.
Recently I completed my first reading of Elizabeth Bentley’s autobiography, Out of Bondage: The Story of Elizabeth Bentley. This blog is an introduction to the personal drama that Elizabeth Bentley lived through. You will experience breath-taking adventure as you read for yourself — the first-hand account of her life as an international Soviet Communist espionage agent!
NOTE: Soviet espionage is not confined to the 1930s and 1940s. It has continued, and still exists today.
Through her book, Elizabeth takes you with her as she comes to believe that she is going to help make the world a better place for everyone. Eventually you will experience with her, the growing horror that she feels, as she gradually discovers she has been duped — and then realizes that she is trapped. She finds herself part of a world-wide sinister plan to enslave the part of mankind that will be allowed to live. Would she be allowed to live, or would anyone else she knew survive?
Elizabeth Bentley is another one of our true American Heroes who ends up risking everything, including her own life, in order to help uncover the operation that she for many years, had an active part in implementing and managing.
This blog piece focuses on some of how she got ensnared into Communism.
Her experience is in many ways common to countless people who have gotten sucked into supporting the goal of Communist world domination, believing the fantasy that Communist promise: justice and fairness for all mankind.
How can an educated, white, middle-class person, get to the point in their life, where they want to risk their life to help destroy their own country? As you read Elizabeth’s autobiography you find some answers to that question. Continue reading →
The following blog piece is about a man who was a witness in 1948. This witness testified that one of the better-known, better-loved and respected men in our country, who was working high in our government, was a Soviet espionage agent. The man he witnessed about, was instrumental in the creation of the United Nations, and was instrumental in China becoming Communist. He was the first Secretary General of the UN.
How did “this man” become a witness against the Soviet espionage agent?
“This man” is Whittaker Chambers. He was born 1901, into an educated, middle-class, New York family. He was a gentle man who never wanted to hurt anyone.
As he was growing up, he witnessed the collapse of his own family. In 1920-1921 there was a depression, and it seemed to him that the economy of the United States was about to crumble.
When he went to college at Columbia shortly after WWI, he entered as a conservative in his lifestyles and his politics. At that time he was also having a religious experience. When he first left Columbia, he was no longer conservative, and had no religion. He later returned to Columbia for a while, and when he finally left Columbia in 1925, he did so to join the Communist party.
By the time he joined the Communist party, he had already searched and studied thoroughly. He had previously written an atheist play that caught the eye of the Communist party. When he joined the Communists, he was convinced that he was leaving the losing side to join the winners. He was convinced that American Capitalism was going to fail. He believed the only hope for a good society to emerge was offered by the Communist party. He could find no other philosophy that offered what he believed the Communist party had to offer.
Communism appeared to be the only hope for the collapsing world
— Because of his strong faith that Communism was the only hope for our country, and for the world

Here is another shocking report. Communism never fell. The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story, a documentary — and book based on the documentary — are subjects of this Blog. See Blog 191 for a 2012 interview with Robert Buchar, maker of the documentary and author of the book.
Note: The companion book to this DVD is: And Reality Be Damned…Undoing America: What media didn’t tell you about the end of the Cold War and the fall of communism in Europe, by Robert Buchar. http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/book.html
Many of the people who spoke and are quoted in the documentary “The Collapse of Communism….”, came from: “KGB defectors, dissidents, former CIA officials, and documents from secret files of KGB and the Gorbachev’s Library.”
This documentary speaks for itself. It presents information about what has really been going on with Russian Communism. It helps explain what we are witnessing in our country today.
The KGB took over, and hand-picked Russian leader Vladimir Putin (who is third-generation KGB), to rule Russia. As we have seen, Putin has continued toward their goal — destruction of the United States, and conquest of the world.
Following the link to the DVD movie trailer below is: 1) a report about the documentary from the www.collapseofcommunism.com website, and 2) a message from the author of the documentary (Robert Buchar).
“The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story” (A Robert Buchar Film) is an excellent DVD documentary which exposes as false narrative, what we have been taught to believe: the myth that the Cold War ended with the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe — and that Communism was destroyed in Russia. Go to Blog 0181 to read about three areas that International Communism has been targeting — with the purpose of destroying our country.
One project that reveals the active efforts by Soviet Russia to undermine both Britain and the U.S., is the Venona Project.
Revealed through this project were secret Soviet cable traffic from the 1940s. The United Stated intercepted thousands of them, and eventually decrypted a large percentage of them.
These secret Soviet cables revealed the names of Americans Soviet espionage agents, who were not only stealing our military and government secrets, in order to help the Soviets “take us down,” but they were deciding our foreign and domestic policies as well. Many of these spies were not removed from working in our government — and hundreds in the Venona cables were never decrypted. Who knows how many Soviet agents were never even mentioned in the cables?
Verification of Whittaker Chambers and Elizabeth Bentley’s
identification of spies
This book is a great reference book, and clears up a lot of misinformation about Joe McCarthy.
LIES WERE MANUFACTURED AND DESIGNED FROM THE BEGINNING,
TO USE McCARTHY AS THE “POSTER CHILD” FOR IMAGINARY ACCUSATIONS, IN ORDER TO NEUTRALIZE THE TRUTH
Almost all of academia, the vast majority of the press, and most of the public, have been saying McCarthy was nuts, even at the time Joe McCarthy was trying to reveal Communist infiltration. At that time, any of McCarthy’s mistaken claims, and things he did out of frustration, were magnified and repeated. He was effectively discounted — but Joe McCarthy was actually provably right about the Communist infiltration of our government!
He came on the scene soon after the Whittaker Chambers/Alger Hiss investigations and trial(s) (1948). In 1948 the statute of limitations had passed, so Alger Hiss couldn’t be put in prison for being a Soviet espionage agent. But he was proven guilty of being a Soviet espionage agent, and was convicted and put in prison for perjury – – for saying he was not a Soviet espionage agent.
Joe McCarthy was effectively used by the Left, as a good neutralizing force that diverted people away from the reality that Alger Hiss and other Soviet Communists had become part of our government, and were doing damage.
THE FACT OF SOVIET COMMUNIST INFILTRATION AND THEIR
WORK IN OUR GOVERNMENT IS PROVEN THROUGH THOUSANDS OF RESOURCESContinue reading →
