In 1993, Russia explicitly rejected the Soviet Union’s no-first-use pledge.
The military doctrine published in 2000 expanded the circumstances in which Russia might use nuclear weapons, including in response to attacks using weapons of mass destruction against Russia or its allies, as well as in response to large-scale aggression utilizing conventional weapons in situations critical to the national security of the Russian Federation.
New Russian systems include, among others, a heavy ICBM with the ability to carry multiple warheads, a hypersonic glide vehicle, an autonomous underwater vehicle, and a nuclear-powered cruise missile.
With Ukrainian President Zelensky belatedly recognizing that “millions of lives are at stake” in this great-power showdown between the Russian Federation and the United States that’s fast plunging towards the abyss of a nuclear war holocaust, the American people remain blissfully unaware of the cruel fate being planned for them by their demonic socialist-globalist overlords—as instead of them being told even the merest truth about what’s occurring, they’ve been kept in blind ignorance while being maniacally entertained with a genuine Soviet-era communist “show trial”—and is a public trial in which authorities have already determined the guilt of the defendant, as the actual trial has as its only goal the presentation of both the accusation and the verdict to the public so they will serve as both an impressive example and a warning to other would-be dissidents or transgressors.
As a warning to the American people of what this “show trial” was really all about, the day prior to this innocent police officer being convicted by a terrified jury that didn’t even bother to review any of the evidence, the Wall Street Journal published their prescient article “The Chauvin Trial and the Chelsea Handler Standard of Justice”, wherein it truthfully noted:
Today’s progressives prefer summary trial convictions based on popular sentiment.
While an apprehensive nation awaits the outcome of a Minneapolis police officer’s murder trial, it’s possible that the administration of American justice could soon be characterized by what future historians may come to call the Chelsea Handler standard.
As the trial of Derek Chauvin got underway a month ago, Ms. Handler, who has a day-job as a comedian but has branched out recently into the field of jurisprudence, issued a profound observation on Twitter : “So pathetic that there’s a trial to prove that Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd when there is video of him doing so.”
You might think that more than 800 years after the Magna Carta and 230 years after the Bill of Rights, some notions of due process, presumption of innocence and protection against arbitrary justice might have embedded themselves in the minds of even our densest celebrities.
But while it’s easy to mock, we should be careful not to assume that this taste for summary conviction on the basis of popular sentiment is confined to unfunny comedians.It seems to be widely shared among the ideologues who now control the Democratic Party, the media and cultural elites.
If these Americans had been taught true history instead of being brainwashed in the socialist indoctrination centers they laughably call schools, they would have learned that “show trials” were created by radical Russian communist revolutionaries Nikolai Bukharin and Yevgeni Preobrazhensky, who in their 1919 publication “The ABC of Communism”, exactly detailed everything just seen to unjustly convict this innocent American police officer—though in one of the more savage ironies of history, some two decades later it saw both Bukharin and Preobrazhensky being unjustly convicted in their own “show trials” under Josef Stalin and sentenced to death.[Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]
