American soldiers held captive in North Korea were subject to brainwashing by Soviet-trained Pavlovian psychiatrists, and like trained dogs obeyed secret commands after being repatriated to the United States. Don’t believe that this is the main plot of “The Manchurian Candidate” classic movie featuring Frank Sinatra.
The actual main plot is the conspiracy to place a Soviet stooge in the White House he posing as an avid anti-Communist while his wife played by actress Angela Landsbury is the real Soviet power behind the throne. To confirm this just review the movie.
Meanwhile in 1930’s America Marine General Smedley Butler exposed a real plot by a corporate group which attempted to use him in a takeover of the American government to then make an anti-Stalinist alliance with Adolph Hitler. Instead, President Roosevelt made an anti-Nazi alliance with Stalin.
The top German Soviet agent and friend of Lenin, Willi Muzenburg, served Stalin faithfully as a masterful propagandist in Europe and America, but fell out of favor during the Hitler-Stalin Pact. After Hitler defeated France with the help of French Stalinists Munzenburg was murdered while attempting to flee. When Hitler later betrayed Stalin the French Stalinists became freedom fighters.
Kim Philby was an important Stalinist agent in Britiish Intelligence who regularly betrayed his country, but became a wartime patriot during the Churchill-Stalin Alliance. He later defected to Moscow.
Shakespeare said: “To be or not to be” The ancient Greek philosophers said: “To be is to do” Modern philosophers say: “To do is to be!” Frank sinatra said: “Do be do be do”
