Lessons from the Battle of Warsaw, 1920-2020

100 years ago, the Poles defeated the Red Army on the outskirts of Warsaw.

100 years ago, on the outskirts of Warsaw, the fate of Europe was being decided in a now forgotten battle.

On the banks of the Vistula, the Poles faced off the invading Soviet hordes, who having taken control of Russia, decided to expand their totalitarian communist ideology into Europe.

Europe was exhausted by the First World War, worker movements all across Europe were hungry for change and the atmosphere was ripe for rebellion. The Soviets were aware of this, “To the West! March on to Vilnius, Minsk, Warsaw! and onward to Berlin over the corpse of Poland!” commanded General Tukhachevsky in July 1920.

In fact, some Bolsheviks had greater ambitions than merely reaching Berlin, Nikolai Bukharin wrote about taking the war “right up to London and Paris.”

All that stood between the heart of Europe and the almost million strong Soviet Army was the Poles. The Soviets advanced into Poland at the incredible rate of 32 kilometres a day, pushing the Poles steadily deeper into Poland, until they finally reached the outskirts of Warsaw.

On the 13th of August 1920, the Battle of Warsaw started. Communist propaganda and Western opinion alike predicted the swift defeat of the Poles. So convinced were people that Warsaw would fall that all foreign diplomats chose to flee the city, apart from the Vatican and British Ambassadors.

However, against all odds, the mass mobilisation of Polish society against the Bolsheviks, accompanied by talented Polish codebreakers and cryptologists, combined with the tactical genius of Field Marshal Jozef Pilsudski and General Rozwadowski led the Poles to victory on the 15th of August 1920.

The Bolsheviks were not only stopped, but pushed back, and Lenin abandoned plans for a worldwide revolution, focusing instead on consolidating power in Russia.

Just as the Poles led by King John III Sobieski saved Christendom by stopping the Ottomans at the Gates of Vienna in 1683, they contained the spread of communist totalitarianism in 1920.

Poland would eventually fall, 19 years later, to the German Nazis who would wipe out the country’s elites and leave the country in ruin by 1945, and then to the Soviets who would finish off the job and impose 45 years of communist misery and poverty on the country. The Poles, having faced off the communist threat militarily in 1920, fended it off between 1945 and 1989 culturally and spiritually, never letting themselves or their identity be broken by the communist tyranny.

Having experienced on their own backs the misery of communism, the Poles are perhaps even more staunchly anti-communist than in 1920, and the current Law and Justice government, reflects this.

It is perhaps ironic then, that just as Poland celebrates the 100th anniversary of this glorious victory over communism, and reminisces about how it contained the threat from the East, this time, the threat lies in the West.

It is a more subtle and a cleverer threat, and perhaps thus a much more dangerous one than the primitive communism of the Bolsheviks. Totalitarianism or existential threats do not always come on the bayonets of invading hordes – as we are seeing in the West today, sometimes they come as neatly packaged and alluring gifts. The Polish Minister of Culture, Piotr Glinski recently wrote that “Western civilization has already fallen once. (…) The Roman Empire collapsed not only as the result of a barbarian invasion, but also because it lost self-confidence. Today we are facing the same threat.”

The Western world, reduced to the Western lifestyle, now faces it’s most severe test in decades: the challenges of the crisis of liberalism combined with an aggressive and ever stronger progressive left and Marxist thought. This crisis is keenly felt in the West; the seeds planted by Marx, his critique of capital and of the accumulation of wealth, 150 years later, have found their way back “home”. Lest we forget, though communism first took power in Russia, Marx “Communist Manifesto” was written whilst Marx lived in Brussels, whereas “Das Kapital” was researched from the comfort of the British Museums reading room, in between multiple cigar breaks, all whilst Marx was married to an aristocrat.

It is precisely in times like these, when society faces not only hardship but is faced with an existential threat, that we ought to look back for inspiration in history. Britain has not been successfully invaded since 1066, and so the Poles provide a wonderful example to draw from; they have defended the peripheries of Western civilisation for centuries, repelling the Mongols and the Tatars. In 1683, the Winged Hussars of Polish King John III Sobieski defeated the Ottomans at Vienna. In 1920, the Polish Army led by Pilsudski repelled the Red Horde. Throughout the second half of the 20th Century, the Polish Pope John Paul II led a spiritual war against communism, whereas the Polish Solidarity movement repeatedly challenged communism.

What has given the Poles the will to act and fight so desperately over the centuries? Who knows exactly what the answer actually is, but it would seem the permanent threat to their very existence, combined with a deep love for freedom and their staunch Catholic faith provide at least a partial explanation.

Author: The Media’s Agenda is Not to Mislead People, But to Demoralize Them

“Nobody believes the press anymore.”

Author Alex Newman says the point of media deception is no longer to mislead people into believing lies but rather to demoralize them into total submission.

Newman, who wrote Deep State: The Invisible Government Behind the Scenes, explained what he meant during an interview with Greg Hunter.

“Nobody believes the press anymore,” said Newman. “The point is not to make people believe these absurdities anymore. The point now is to demoralize people and to really silence us.”

He pointed to the example of the FBI and DOJ being sicked on parents, who are now being demonized as domestic terrorists merely for speaking out against Critical Race Theory brainwashing and mask mandates in schools.

“AG Garland said all these parents are intimidating and harassing school boards. What could be more intimidating than sicking one of the world’s most powerful law enforcement agency on parents expressing their concern? I can’t think of more things that would be more intimidating than that. So, the irony is off the charts, but the goal here is to silence people into submission.”

The author noted how the establishment relies on keeping people constantly black pilled and isolated so they never even attempt to resist tyranny, no matter what the odds.

“They trot out these people to demoralize us and to scare us and make us think that everything is over. Just keep your head down and comply, but it’s not working.”

Striking a positive note, Newman asserted that the deep state has been losing since 2016 and their efforts to rig voting and algorithms only betrays their utter desperation in holding back an awakening that is inevitable.

“We have an awakening going on in this country,” said Newman. “There’s an awakening that is happening here that is unprecedented in the modern history of this country. It is such good news, but now we are in a race against time. They are trying to collapse the supply chain and trying to implode everything before enough people wake up and do something about it.”

Newman is correct in identifying ‘demoralization’ as the primary motivation of the media, the deep state and the parasites now wielding power over our lives.

They plant their flags, they celebrate ‘months’ to honor their demented hysteria, they persecute anyone who stands up to them as an example to others.

The biggest part of the struggle is to remain happy warriors, even in the face of absolute adversity, so as to be the example to others and provide them with strength and encouragement.

Newman explained how the establishment’s empire is built on a foundation of “lies, deception, trickery and intrigue.”

“When you examine it closely, it all falls apart. It’s true with the clot shots. It’s true with the mandates. It’s true with the schools. It’s true with the courts, and it’s true with everything that they are doing. They have to rely on lies. The Bible says the devil is the father of lies.”

‘Feminist’ Website Jezebel Calls For ‘Bullying’ of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema

Leftists mad that Sinema doesn’t support Biden spending bill.

Left-wing feminist website Jezebel is receiving criticism after openly calling for Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who was stalked and followed into a bathroom by immigration activists, to be ‘bullied’ because she doesn’t support the Biden spending bill.

Activists from Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA), which campaigns for loosening immigration laws, were seen on film harassing Sinema over her opposition to a spending bill that the Biden administration is trying to pass.

Sinema received harassment from the demonstrators, at least one of whom was an illegal alien, before being pursued into the bathroom.

“We knocked on doors for you, to get you elected. And just how we got you elected, we can get you out of office if you don’t support what you promised us,” one of the activists states as Sinema enters a stall.

While most people condemned the confrontation, feminist website Jezebel celebrated it with a tweet and headline asserting, “Absolutely Bully Kyrsten Sinema Outside Of Her Bathroom Stall.”

Conservatives were quick to respond.

“If this happened to AOC, and it was conservatives following her into the bathroom, you would cry about it nonstop for the next 15 years,” wrote Matt Walsh.

Others pointed out the hypocrisy of what the response would be if AOC had received the same treatment at the hands of conservatives.

Cabot Philips highlighted how the same publication had dismissed “free speech” as a legitimate justification for bullying women.

“Absolutely reported for inciting violence against an elected official,” tweeted Geoffrey Miller.

The tweet is clearly a direct violation of Twitter’s rules on bullying and harassment which state;

“We prohibit behavior that encourages others to harass or target specific individuals or groups with abusive behavior. This includes, but is not limited to; calls to target people with abuse or harassment online and behavior that urges offline action such as physical harassment.”

Jezebel is directly inciting people to harass Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, but don’t expect the Silicon Valley giant to take any action against their account.

The activists themselves are now being probed by authorities in Arizona and could be hit with over 2 years in jail due to the crime of filming someone in a bathroom without their consent being a class 5 felony.

Reporter Scrambles Into Damage Control After Crowd of NASCAR Fans Chant “F**k Joe Biden!”

Ludicrously claims fans were chanting for race winner.

An NBC reporter scrambled into damage control after a crowd of NASCAR fans started chanting “f**k Joe Biden!”, with the interviewer ludicrously claiming they were actually chanting “Let’s go Brandon!”

The incident happened on Saturday evening after Brandon won the NASCAR Xfinity Series Race at Talladega.

Almost immediately after the interview began, the crowd was clearly heard to chant “f**k Joe Biden!”

As the chant grew louder, its wording became even clearer.

Not according to the reporter, who swiftly moved to clarify that the fans were chanting “let’s go Brandon!”

They weren’t.

It’s hard to give the reporter the benefit of the doubt and say she misheard the chant given its volume and clarity.

The chant has also become a popular refrain for sports fans nationwide over the course of the last month, most notably at football stadiums, so it’s not as if it’s a brand new phenomenon.

Apparently, the offcial NASCAR Twitter account retweeted the chanting video before rather quickly un-retweeting it.

“In recent weeks, new polls by Axios/Ipsos found trust in the president continues to slide. The first real glimpse of Biden’s poll slippage was in late July when a Gallup poll found his approval ratings began to turn lower,” reports Zero Hedge.

“Compound the botched exit of Afghanistan, southern border crisis, and soaring food, gas, and rent prices; it is no surprise that the president’s ratings continue to tumble and the “F**k Joe Biden” chants grow louder, forcing corporate media into damage control.”
