Russian espionage professionals never quit targeting America. And let’s just call them the KGB, as their specific name of the moment doesn’t really matter. They infiltrated American society and planted the seeds of political correctness nearly one hundred years ago. Vladimir Putin is a KGB operations officer — and always will be. Manipulation and deception are as Russian as babushkas and vodka. The FBI’s arrests this week of KGB operatives in America is not surprising. Neither is it surprising that their objective was more about “gaining influence” in political circles rather than sole intelligence gathering. One of the agents worked as a journalist.
The KGB was an evolutionary outgrowth of the tsar’s own intelligence service.
Communism’s “collapse” only pressed the pause button on the KBG’s ops machine. A brief moment of openness and cooperation passed in the blink of an eye. Open archives slammed shut. Floods of revelations dried quickly. Cooperating offices became uncooperative.
After 2008, smelling weakness and sensing operational openings, the KGB oligarchy flexed its muscles, testing our young President. The Secretary of State and the President babbled about “re-setting” the relationship. Putin and his KGB minions surely reinvigorated covert operations. While they smiled at their “new best friends,” a stable of covert reporters infiltrated the enemy.
Russia saw the strategic opening. Regaining her former glory as a super-power was in reach. Surely a message went out to all KGB stations: Our historic covert influence has borne fruit. Obama and his clique are our anti-American agents of change. Reach out. Intimidate. Influence. Negotiate. Accelerate developmentals. Lend a sympathetic ear. Help them destroy their own country.
Obama was nurtured in the fertile center of Soviet covert influence: Columbia University. KGB’s file on Columbia dates back to one of the first Soviet illegals. Werner Rakov, a Soviet trade representative, enrolled in Columbia in 1925. Paul Massing, a “social researcher” spied for the KGB, and helped his wife, Heidi, recruit members of the forerunner of the CIA.
Whittaker Chambers studied at Columbia before joining the Communist Party of the USA (CPUSA). Elizabeth Bentley did too. Bill Ayers earned his Education degrees at Columbia Teachers College. Cy Oggins, a hapless American agent for the KGB, shot dead in the basement of the KGB’s headquarters, studied at Columbia in 1920s. And young Barry Obama earned a degree there.
