I first learned of this project when the author contacted me about my unpublished collection of family letters written by Alexander Gumberg (1911-17). Gumberg lived with my ancestors and was especially close to my great-aunt. He ended up a Soviet agent, and Clizbe believes he was the "prototype Soviet covert influence handler." A recent Russian immigrant (like my family) of very modest means, he had tremendous intellectual gifts and vision. For a time he worked at a NYC communist newspaper with Trotsky (who came from the same Ukrainian town as Gumberg and my family). Trotsky and Gumberg both left NYC and returned to Russia just as the Revolution broke out. Two years later Gumberg ended up the 'translator' for the first major trade and diplomatic delegation of Americans sent to the new Soviet regime. These were very important American leaders of politics and commerce, several of whom later wrote memoirs of the trip. None seem to have realized, even after the fact, that Gumberg was not really working for them, but for his Soviet friends. There is absolutely no question from my family letters, his work on the newspaper, and other documents that his ideological commitments were completely Communist, and yet the delegation of Americans invited him into all of their discussions, and viewed him as one there to translate menus and book hotel rooms. He was without any doubt their Soviet handler, and these seasoned Americans were clueless. Gumberg quickly became extremely wealthy, sat on the board of Chase Bank, was close friends to several Republican governors and senators, etc.

These are the kinds of stories Clizbe tells in an engaging style. I was pretty much riveted and found this book extremely hard to put down.

Format: Paperback
Willing Accomplices is a focused and comprehensive investigation into key people that subscribed to all the characteristics of Marxism and Socialism, that used all tools available at the time(s) to dismantle the moral American spirit. The author put forth a remarkable and Herculean effort in unveiling the long term objectives of the KBG to sabotage the kind and ethical life force and psyche of what has defined America and her citizens since inception. This book is to be highly recommended, as when the reader reaches the conclusion, will close the book with an insight, as well as a need to examine the landscape, media, education and music of our country to see how the KGB planted people and seeds that continue to invade our spirit. Willing Accomplices is a launch pad and call to action to speak real truth, seek real truth and print real truth. Willing Accomplices is inspiring and gratifying to all dedicated Americans that remain diligent in preserving the definition of being an American.

The U.S. gov't recently bailed out the last two hikers jailed in Iran. Back stateside, the hikers then blamed their gov't for its lack of diplomatic relations. They didn't blame Iran. They didn't blame themselves. Nope. All our govt's fault. For those of you under about age 30 or so, there was a time when U.S. citizens were raised steeped in civics and world history and Western-based classic literature and were fiercely proud of their country despite its faults. Somehow, biting the hand that feeds you became fashionable, now its near mandatory. Victicrats are celebrated, not scorned.

Mr. Clizbe's intensely researched book spells out that the U.S. got brainwashed over a period of decades by being drip-fed self-loathing. If you think he's yet another conspiracy theory loon, I'm right with you, because that was my first impression. Then I met this brainy gentleman, heard him at a panel discussion, and decided he was onto something as I rethought experiences from my own life through his eyes. Having now read his book, I think he's a very brave genius.

This is a compelling read. It's not bogged down with academic jargon designed to intimidate. Clizbe wants you to get his point of view and I enjoyed that he begins by writing about his own life and how his own thinking evolved. He's occasional abrasive and he's sure to offend nearly everybody somehow; shrug it off and keep reading because he's worth it.

I'd have given this 5 stars but as a career copyeditor, I found the fluctuating kerning, the frequent widows and orphans, and the occasional typos irksome. If I just used three copy-layout terms you didn't know, then the book's appearance probably won't bother you.

You must read this expert and insightful book! People who will benefit: all citizens, educators, journalists, entertainers, clergy, and public servants.

For those familiar with the topic:
Clizbe's amazing contribution is to demonstrate a very pervasive and effective tactic (Political Correctness as generated from the Muenzenberg Creed) in the larger culture war, and strategies for Ideological Subversion of the West. What I found to be interesting was to take the info that Clizbe presents and produce a synthesis with Bezmenov's "Subversion Process". The ramifications of the Muenzenberg Creed and its PC manifestation can contribute to demoralization in structure, life, AND ideas. When you think about it, the effects even have great facility during destabilization, crisis, and normalization as well.

As someone who is well-studied on the 50,000 ft view, I was absolutely blown away by Clizbe's incredible ability to paint a clear picture from the 5,000 ft view. His CI analysis was fascinating, and you will be intrigued tenfold by the implications.

For those unfamiliar with the topic:
There are many ways to manipulate populations within legal frameworks. If you can program generations of an opposing nation to think and behave as you wish, then blunt and overt forces which have quite unpleasant repercussions become unnecessary.

What does this have to do with your life? Subversion will manifest in simple ways that you are familiar with. Have you conducted a job interview in the last 8 years? Have you been on a date? Have you tried to keep a marriage together? Have you dealt with a crooked cop?
