Rebekah Koffler: Biden nominee prefers Soviet system to free-market economy – don't let them destroy the US

President Joe Biden’s choice for comptroller of the currency, Saule Omarova, wants to transform America’s free market economy into a Soviet-style system – the same kind of central planning that destroyed her native country, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.  

Being an immigrant to the United States from the Soviet Union, and a communist survivor myself, I am well aware of the devastating effects central planning has on an economy as well as lives. United States senators must reject “Comrade” Omarova’s radical ideology which includes ideas like nationalizing banks, empowering federal government apparatchiks to set pay scales and prices, and enabling academics to oversee investments so they can finance social experiments. All of it will lead America to the exact same fate as my country 30 years ago. 

Omarova was a “Lenin Award” winner from her country for her praises of her Soviet socialist nation’s lack of gender pay gaps. She slammed the market for creating a Wall Street “ahole culture”, and she expressed disdain for our “dysfunctional” financial system. 


As someone who grew up standing in line for hours to shop in an over-crowded grocery store or a bare-shelved department store let me tell you about Omarova’s “wondrous” socialist system. By the time you reached the counter to pay, all that was left to buy was rancid milk, or at the department store, wrong-size boots. You bought them anyway – the first to make a sour-tasting tvorog (cottage cheese),You can pair the first with several socks. 

The socialist economy didn’t produce enough of anything and everything that was manufactured domestically was barely usable. What was the reason? Because everyone received the same amount regardless of their effort, there was no incentive to innovate or work hard. Omarova was a government bureaucrat who made it impossible to make a difference in the lives of people by controlling everything.  


Under communism, there was a saying: “They pay us and they work for us.” There can’t be a gender pay gap when there’s no pay. The salary of a garbage collection worker or doctor was insufficient to sustain a family. People turned to illegal alternatives such as corruption and the black market to make ends meet. Meanwhile, the Communist Party ruling elites were the Soviet version of Omarova’s Wall Street “a–holes,” except they didn’t produce any wealth.

President Biden and his coterie of socialists like Omarova are hard at work transforming America into the type of “Workers’ and Peasants’ Paradise” many fled for freedom. Omarova, for whatever reason, has not renounced her socialist beliefs since arriving in America. She is now a part of a foreign conspiracy to weaken the United States. As a former DIA intelligence officer and specialist in Russian doctrine and strategy, I am very familiar with efforts to undermine America from within through ideological subversion. 

Soviet defector, KGB-trained covert influence expert Yuri Bezmenov alerted Americans about a Soviet secret program in the 1980s. The “master plan” was intended to change the United States from being a capitalist nation to one that is communist-socialist. It involved ideological subversion over a period of 30+ years. 

KGB agents were trained in psychological warfare and implemented the four-stage program. The goal was to alter the thinking and behavior of youth Americans through exposure to Marxist-Leninist ideas, such as equal outcome, intolerance for dissent, rejection of religion. To portray socialist ideas as humane and desirable, intelligence operatives penetrated academia, media and government institutions as well as labor unions and Hollywood. 

While the Cold War was won by the Soviet Union and America lost, there is no denying that the efforts to destroy America are still hot. 

Spies targeted left-leaning individuals, the so-called “useful idiots,” and cultivated them as “agents of influence” who would educate the next generation of elites – sometimes unwittingly helping the Kremlin execute its plan. In turn, these elites were supposed to assume senior roles eventually within government, business, culture and other institutions—positions with the power to change or overturn the American system.

The Cold War was won by the Soviet Union but it is not over. However, there are still many efforts to destroy America. 


An influential Russian think-tank recommended in the 2018 issue of “International Threats,” a “disorganize of American strategy fundamentals.” Russian analysts pointed out that U.S. law allows foreign governments to lobby the federal government via agents. This isn’t considered interference in domestic politics. To create compelling narratives for Washington, D.C. elites, it was suggested to use emotionally charged language, Biblical themes, and arguments related the protection of individual freedoms and human rights. 


Whether some Americans’ disturbing embrace of socialism is a result of a long-term foreign influence program or a natural outcome of a democratic society that places a premium on a free exchange of ideas is irrelevant. History has proven time and again which system produces prosperity – and which produces stagnation and tyranny. 

Biden must stop acting like a useful idiot who seems to be letting agents of influence and radicals – whether home-grown like Bernie Sanders or foreign-born like Saule Omarova – destroy our country from within.
