"The spread of communism around the world had not just been facilitated by the globalist elites in the Western world, the super capitalists, the mega bankers and so on. It wasn't just facilitated, it wasn't just enabled, it was driven by them," Newman told host Dr. Peter Breggin during the June 22 episode of "ReFounding America" on Brighteon.TV.
The award-winning international journalist and author noted that a bunch of wealthy people financed German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in their communist exploits. He added that the first major victory for the communists was the overthrow of the Russian Empire that led to the creation of the former Soviet Union.

Newman cited American historian Anthony Sutton's book "Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution," which showed that some of the most powerful banking houses on Wall Street gave an enormous amount of money to Russian communist leaders Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky. He also noted that the Soviet Union was built by Western capitalists and American mega-corporations.
According to Newman, the likes of well-known communist dictators Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Fidel Castro were supported by the Western elites who helped build their governments.
He said China is a very obvious example of a backward and poor nation that turned into an industrial superpower that rivals the United States militarily and economically through the deliberate intervention of Western elites.
For Newman, communism is the "ultimate predatory system" because it removes all human freedom and puts all decisions under the control of the government. "It is the ultimate manifestation of the system that the predator class wants to design for us," Newman said.
According to Newman, the global elites recognize that pure communism could not survive economically and that communism couldn't sustain itself without being a parasite that sucks the wealth out of places like the United States.
He pointed out that people need to understand that the Western elites have made it all possible.
"They enabled this, they helped it. And then it needs to be understood that the globalist elites prefer the Communist Chinese model to the American model. They don't want to live in a world where we have God-given rights and the government is in charge of protecting those. They don't want to live in a world with a rule of law where little people like us get free speech and get protections from an abusive government," said Newman.
"China is both the key driver of the Great Reset agenda and the model of what the New World Order is going to look like."
Newman added that global elites are like some kind of mafia bosses, but with even less moral and ethical standards. "These people are ruthless and they regularly turn against each other. They all want to be the top dog and be the evilest and the most powerful," he said.
