Coming under the heading of, Oh, hell! There is a fascinating story over on DailyKos that everyone should read. It seems that more than 30 years ago, a KGB defector predicted exactly what Donald Trump is doing to America, and said it was part of a larger Russian plan.

In A Chilling Prediction From a KGB Defector in the 1980’s, CyberMindGrrl recalls “an interview in 1984 from a recent KGB defector named Alexandrovich Bezmenov, who defected to Canada in 1970. What stands out is his warning to America that the KGB has been waging a PsyOps warfare campaign against the United States, and he nearly perfectly predicts what is happening today vis a vis Putin and Trump.” Specifically, Bezmenov said that there was in place in Russia a plan to undermine the American nation using “active measures,” subversion, and divisive disinformation. Sound familiar? The only thing new is that the Russians got the perfect agent to do the job, an American president who was also their puppet.

So, if you’re wondering what’s going on, and how we got into this awful mess, there is at least one answer available from the ominous year 1984, and provided by someone who really knows about such things.
