J. Michael Waller discusses the Marxist subversion and active measures currently being applied to the United States, having now infiltrated to the highest levels of government. Bolshevik programs that initially were meant to destroy Germany took on a life of their own, migrating via the Frankfurt School to America. He discusses Operation Trust, the revolutionary programs like CRT and DEI which have been unleashed to tear our society apart, and Yuri Bezmenov. The FBI and CIA at the time were fighting this, but ultimately failed us. The post-9/11 security state and Obama presidency were key in advancing this agenda. He comments on the potential civil war scenario playing out in Texas.
