Who Runs the World?

Rabbi Baruch Shlomo Cunin is an elder in Chabad. He is head of Lubavitch Chabad in California – the Shaliach personally appointed by the Lubavitcher Rebbe many years ago to head that region of the country. He is also one of the most successful fundraisers Chabad has. His annual telethons which have featured some of the biggest names in Hollywood - have raised millions for Chabad.

So I ask this without any comment and in complete sincerity. Why is he saying that the Rebbe runs the world? Is this not heresy?

Is this mainstream Chabad speaking? Or is this a renegade Lubavitcher? And if he is a renegade, how can Chabad leadership allow him to remain in this very prestigious, influential, and high profile position?
