Gorbachev thinks what happened at the U.S. Capitol looks strangely familiar... Says it “was evidently planned in advance, and it is clear by whom”

I didn't know Mikhail Gorbachev was still alive, but someone tracked him down and asked what he thought about the state of the United States right now. His answer is pretty disturbing: he sees clear parallels to how the Soviet Union collapsed 30 years ago. I dare say, he would know.

The Soviet Union collapsed because we outspent them and they were committed to a fully planned and controlled economy. Those inefficiencies broke them.

In my view, it looks more like we're chasing the Chinese model.

Just sayin'

There's also a parallel with the showdown between Yeltsin and the Duma in 1993. A populist leader wanted to bypass the legislative branch to implement reforms rooted in the idea of a free market.

That didn't end well either.

Gorbachev doesn't know squat. The only way I would care about his opinion is if it was part of a conversation in polite company, so as not to be rude.

The Soviet union collapsed in 1991 when the rest of the world was still financially much stronger.
The world today is in a global recession and the US is feeling the pain along with all the other countries.

Here are some clues:

(A couple Antifa members identified and one who was present when Ashli got shot immediately runs down the stairs to change his clothes behind the police.)

There is also a video analysis somewhere which shows the gunman moving his gun away right before he pulled the trigger.

There is a video with General McInereney stating that he knew Special Forces was there and they got Pelosi's laptop. I also have reason to believe there indeed was Special Ops or something like that in the crowd.

For me the big question is - is everyone in on it (including the current administration)? Is there some sort of real schism as they portray. Me personally - I lean toward it all being a big psy-op show/theater.

Not sure whats goin on..

the USSR was dissolved because gorbachev was a naive fool that tried to reform the nation too fast and his weakned position was exploited by 3 power hungry rivals who wanted to be the leader of their own country, ukraine, russia and belarus.
