We will bring democracy to Libya - Obama
Reds in the Bed
(Toxic to Democracy)
Perhaps one of the most ideologically possessed leftists in the US today is Carl Davidson, who in an essay he wrote entitled Strategy, Hegemony & The Long March (carldavison.blogspot.com 2006) said this:
Both [Antonio] Gramsci and [Rudi] Dutschke argued that radical social change in highly developed societies would be the result of long, patient organising inside and outside of key institutions, and not simply or primarily a quick, frontal assault through mass actions. This is Dutschke’s long march through the institutions, what Gramsci called the “war of position.”
Davidson was a former student leader of the New Left in the 1960s and served as Vice President and National Secretary of Students for a Democratic Society. From 1968 to 1976, he worked on the Guardian as a writer and news editor, where he disseminated anti-Western propaganda, of the type Gramsci, Dutschke, and in 2022, the Guardian is still famous for publishing.
This essay is not primarily about Davidson but the type of Leftist he represents, of the reds under the bed variety who are now well and truly in the bed and found at the highest echelons of free societies everywhere in positions of power and influence, engaged in deceptive propaganda and lies while publicly "posturing" as defenders of freedom, liberty and democracy; yet, in reality, are working within the institutions to undermine and destroy all three, which is what Gramsci called the "war of position." As this essay will demonstrate, a postmodern Marxist in the context of this war, may not even call themselves Marxists, but Republicans, Conservatives, Democrats, Labourites or Liberals. A closer examination of these totalitarian chameleons reveals the level of hypocrisy and deceit they manifest, through their words and deeds. For example, that Davidson could become National Secretary of Students for a Democratic Society, whilst professing to be a radical Marxist, is ironic to say the least, since postmodern Marxism is everywhere engaged in "patient organising," (propagandising) – in other words, a gradual progress to a fait accompli, which involves the dismantling and destruction of Western Civilization.
Today, totalitarian infiltrators like Davidson can be found in almost every Western institution, particularly the most powerful, which I will proceed to demonstrate by examining the most powerful institution in the Western World, the office of the American Presidency. I sense a few of my readers may at this stage be rolling their eyes and having serious doubts about my objectivity in relation to these matters. "Has Eugene lost his mind?" "Does he really think we erudite and discerning readers will take him seriously?" I would simply reply by asking them to suspend their judgement until after they have finished reading my essay and examining the evidence. And what better place to start than with the intrigues and conspiracies of the Obama Administration.
For example, the Administration's Political Research Associates (PRA) whose mission was to research extremists for "progressive change-makers" (Obama and co.) by investigating conspiracy theories, individuals, and groups. In 2009 PRA published a paper called Toxic to Democracy (politicalresearch.org/2009/). The findings which were to provide a pretext for the Obama Administration to spy on and act against such individuals and groups. The paper was written by senior analyst, Chip Berlet ( a contemporary of Davidson and an avowed Marxist) who had this to say about conspiracy theorists and others:
The combination of burgeoning conspiracy theories coupled with rising populist rage and anti-Obama scapegoating would likely lead to some individuals acting out in apocalyptic violence. They would feel justified because they were acting before it was too late to save the nation from an imagined sinister plot.
The implication here is quite sinister itself, and if taken seriously by law enforcement authorities, could be used against any individual or group opposed to the Obama Administration's Deep State, New World Order socio-political agenda - extremists or not. That a Marxist wrote this document demonstrates quite clearly a case of double standards, particularly when Marxism, as a doctrine, is predicated on the destruction of free societies everywhere. So let's not kid ourselves that Berlet and the PRA cared about democracy.
In his youth, Berlet like Davidson, during the Presidency of George Bush jr., was a member of the radical student Left and helped organize hearings against government surveillance practices regarding fellow Marxists and others, but always from a Left perspective, not out of any concern for individual rights or the US Constitution. Like all Marxists, the real agenda of Berlet's work - who was an Alinskyite subversive - was to use any abuse of civil rights to advance the Deep State's ideological agenda. And so, Bertlet, as expected - after Obama succeeded Bush as president - reversed his role, from an anti-government student activist for social justice, to a Stasi-like government operative who created a spy agency that sanctioned the surveillance and punishment of people whose politics did not resonate with the Obama Administration. This is a typical Marxist volte-face – an example of the depth of deception and dishonesty within which these people operate.
Political analyst and critic Laird Wilcox criticized Berlet and the PRA for what he described as their use of a technique called "Links and Ties," a form of "guilt by association." Wilcox also reveals how "Berlet himself comes from Marxist extremist ranks." (American Extremists: Militias, Supremacists, Klansmen, Communists & Others. Wilcox and George 1996). But Berlet was not the only Alinskyite linked to the Obama Administration.
Three more famous examples of Alinskyite communist subversives - and there were many - was Barack Obama (The President of the United States); Hillary Clinton (The Secretary of State) and Joe Biden, (The Vice President), all of whom advocated for extreme left-wing causes, and who, at the same time, had close ties with the corporate power elite (the 1%), a common trait within all emerging totalitarian regimes and one, as Emeritus Professor Antony Sutton points out in his book Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution (2011), that is absolutely necessary for the transition from an open to a closed society, which makes a mockery of the balderdash that Marxist revolutions are the consequences of the working class rising up and overthrowing their capitalist oppressors.
It is no coincidence that the billionaire totalitarian Hillary Clinton, the 2016 presidential contender, was on intimate terms with many of Wall Street's most powerful corporate capitalists while championing so-called progressive left wing causes. As Politico Magazine, Nov 11, 2017 stated:
The big bankers love Clinton, and by and large they badly want her to be president. Many of the rich and powerful in the financial industry—among them, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, Tom Nides, a powerful vice chairman at Morgan Stanley, and the heads of JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America—consider Clinton a pragmatic problem-solver not prone to populist rhetoric.
In her book It Takes a Village (1996), Clinton describes herself not as a liberal but a "progressive", a title that could easily apply to many Republicans and most, if not all Democrats, who together supported and still support fundamental policies that move the Establishment (Left and Right) in good old Alinskyite fashion, closer to a totalitarian state of America, whilst on a superficial level, appearing to be different.
Born in 1947 in Chicago, Illinois, Hillary Rodham Clinton was a Republican until 1968 at Wellesley College, before she met radical activist and community organizer Saul Alinsky and became a close friend and an acolyte. She in fact wrote her senior thesis about her idol, There Is Only the Fight: An Analysis of the Alinsky Model (1969). Many of Alinsky's "rules for radicals" (lying, cheating, false flags, dirty tricks, blaming the other side and murder when necessary) to this day seem to keep happening all around her, over and over, while evidence disappears, and people are found to be corrupt - all pure coincidences and frame-ups (according to her supporters), or is she just following the game plan she learnt as an impressionable Alinskyite radical?
Clinton, Obama, and Biden were also leading members of The World Federalist Association, which, in 2004, changed its name to Citizens for Global Solutions (globalsolutions.org/) an openly Marxist group that advocates for the destruction of national sovereignty, while promoting open borders and the imposition of a consortium of international police states through "force of law” administered by the United Nations and the European Union, over and above the mandates national leaders derived from their constituents.
The ideology that drives the CGS and the international Deep State movement generally, is based, to a great extent on ideas expounded by the Frankfurt School, the writings of Antonio Gramsci and the later Postmodern (Trotskyite) Marxists, who, after the fall of the Soviet Union, devised a plan to destroy the free nations of the West "from within", by infiltrating their institutions – a plan given a detailed methodology in Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals where he writes about the "stages" of social transformation and organization required before the third and final stage is reached, the second stage being "the dictatorship of the proletariat," leading to the final stage of "the political paradise of communism". Or to put it more honestly: absolute control by the elites.
Obama taught workshops on Alinsky’s theories and methods for years and in 1985, he started working as an organizer for an Alinskyite group called, Developing Community Projects. Obama also helped fund the Alinsky Academy and was a paid director of The Woods Fund, an organization used to provide start-up funding and operating capital for The Midwest Academy, which teaches Alinsky tactics. Obama sat on the Woods Fund Board with William Ayers (a Marxist) and founder of the Weather Underground, a terrorist organization (Matt Patterson. Washington Examiner. Study Saul Alinsky to understand Barack Obama. February 6, 2012. Also D. Jarrow. Rising Star: The Making of Obama. (2017).
So we have a former President of the United States and a former Secretary of State who were both avowed Alinksyite communists, which is as far from a "tin foil hat" conspiracy as you can get, particularly when you follow the evidence. Then we have the former Vice President in the Obama Administration and the current President of the United States, Joe Biden, who still follows the same game plan as comrades Obama and Clinton:
The demands of the fringe are anathema to the centre, pragmatic Dems like Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Kristin Synema, D-Ariz., plus 10 sensible Senate Republicans Biden needs to pass most legislation. Uniting the oxymoronic factions will take a political Houdini. Enter the spirit of Saul Alinsky (Ralph Benko Newsmax. Joe Biden, Radical Pragmatist, Met Saul Alinsky, Pragmatic Radical. newsmax.com/ralphbenko/alinsky-radical 6/July 2021).
The illusion created by Berlet's PRA propaganda was that the Obama Administration and its supporters were "progressive change-makers". But let's look at this phrase a little closer, beyond the Administration's lying rhetoric, in light of what Obama actually did after he came to office and how he dishonoured almost all his major campaign promises, whilst keeping the NWO agenda of the Deep State on track, just like the previous Bush Administration had done, and before them, the Clinton Administration, and before them the Administration of George H. W. Bush Senior, who famously said at his State of the Union speech on 29 January 1991:
What is at stake is more than one small country; it is a big idea: a New World Order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind–peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law.
This kind of Leftist inspired claptrap is the last thing one would expect to hear from a Republican President - a party supposedly in favour of a free market economy, reducing the size of the Federal Government, defending the Constitution and the importance of individual freedom and responsibility.
A serious impediment to the advancement of this totalitarian "world order" during the Obama Administration was Libya, a nation that had grown strong, independent and wealthy whilst at the same time snubbing its nose at the Deep State and emancipating itself from the domination of Wall Street and the US dollar. Under the leadership of Mohamed Gadhafi, Libya became the most powerful and wealthiest nation in Africa. According to the 2011 Human Development Index (HDI), Libya had the highest state of affluence and well-being, in other words of human development (O.760) in Africa, second only to the Seychelles (0.773) and was ten digits higher than South Africa (0.619). The UN's Program Development Report claimed "As a Net Contributing Country, with a GDP of over US$10,000 per capita, Libya does not suffer cases of extreme poverty."
At the time of Muammar Gaddafi’s assassination on 20 October 2011, Libya had a national reserve totalling $150 billion and zero debt. In 2014, three years after his death, records revealed that the national debt of Libya amounted to around $46.37 billion and the standard of living in the country had dropped drastically. Many critics have continued to argue that Gaddafi was targeted by the West because of his vision for a debt-free Africa. (africanexponent.com/post/7633-150b-reserves-and-0-debt-gaddafis-vision-for-a-debt-free-africa).
Gaddafi was also encouraging other African leaders to abandon the US dollar and break their ties with the NWO cabal and its oil and financial operatives on Wall Street. He was also in the final stages of developing a uniquely African international debt free currency called the "Dinar."
Oil, of course, has been mentioned frequently — Libya is Africa‘s largest oil producer. But one possible reason in particular for Gadhafi’s fall from grace has gained significant traction among analysts and segments of the non-Western media: central banking and the global monetary system. According to more than a few observers, Gadhafi’s plan to quit selling Libyan oil in U.S. dollars — demanding payment instead in gold-backed “dinars” (a single African currency made from gold) — was the real cause. The regime, sitting on massive amounts of gold, estimated at close to 150 tons, was also pushing other African and Middle Eastern governments to follow suit (thenewamerican.com/gadhafi-s-gold-money-plan-would-have-devastated-dollar/)
These developments were bad news for Deep State globalists in financial, industrial and government institutions, whose major objective, and one necessary for the future success of their regime (the New World Order) was the centralization and control of financial power worldwide. And so it was decided that Libya needed to be brought back into the fold.
Reports on discussions in the Constitutional Convention (1787) reveal that the Founders were particularly concerned that the ability to be able to declare war "not to be lodged exclusively in the Executive," as it was in the British Aristocracy. Yet, in violation of this Article, and of the procedure set up under the War Powers Resolution (1973) for notification of the Congress, and obtaining its subsequent approval, Obama went ahead with a war against the sovereign nation of Libya in March of 2011. While he notified the Congress of the action, no vote of approval was ever sought, or obtained, nor were the reasons for declaring war on Libya ever substantiated by any visual, written, or eye-witness accounts, that have not been proven to be total fabrications.
Obama's pretext for his unconstitutional declaration of war on Libya was based on a lie that the Libyan city of Benghazi would be attacked by Libyan soldiers who planned to rape and massacre their own citizens. "If we waited one more day," Obama said in his March 28th address, "Benghazi, a city nearly the size of Charlotte, could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world." In a joint letter, the International Deep State Marxist operatives Obama, UK Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Nicholas Sarkozy jointly asserted:
By responding immediately, our countries halted the advance of Gaddafi’s forces. The bloodbath that he had promised to inflict on the citizens of the besieged city of Benghazi has been prevented. Tens of thousands of lives have been protected.
Rebel (ISIS extremist) accusations that Libyan soldiers massacred 1270 prisoners at the Abu Salin Prison in June 1996 have been proven a complete falsehood, a mere propaganda ploy - a lie - which the "objective" BBC picked up and ran with, like a hungry dog with a bone, when they reported that "more than 1,200 bodies were found in Tripoli mass grave." (September 2011). The truth, however, revealed the opposite. CNN, Fox News, and other propaganda organs, reported the same story but were forced to concede later that they were wrong. Members of the media were shown bones at the site, but medics with CNN staffers on the scene said the bones did not appear to be human. The French newspaper La Liberation ran an article under the following headline: Libya: le vrai-faux charnier d' Abou Salim, after one of its reporters investigated the claims and visited the site, and writing, that all the evidence he could find were a few camel bones - that the whole thing seemed to be another propaganda ploy (Sept. 2011).
The war on Libya had nothing to do with a threat to the American people or the Libyan people for that matter - but was conducted to advance the agenda of the International Deep State, in which the US political, industrial and financial Establishments were and still are major players. Obama and his cohort's capacity for straight-faced lying make the Republican "progressives" George Bush Jr. and his father look like a couple of rank amateurs!
What real evidence there is of massacres, was found in Tripoli months after NATO and the US imposed their "life-saving" military measures, indiscriminately killing over 60,000 Libyan men, women and children, destroying the national infrastructure, plunging the people into poverty, and exposing them to the brutal machinations of mercenary Islamic radical organizations, precipitating racist revenge killings including the slaughter and enslavement of black Libyans and Africans, including women and children (counterpunch.org/2011/09/02/30000-bombs-over-libya/).
The callousness of this war crime was celebrated by the Obama Administration, with the Secretary of State Comrade Clinton, in an interview she gave to CSN. After hearing that Gadhafi had been captured and killed she told the reporter, with a smile and a chuckle that "we came, we saw, he died." No mention of the 60,000 plus Libyan citizens who also died or the bombing raids that decimated Libyan cities and towns.
Addressing leaders of the National Transitional Council, Mrs Clinton vowed that NATO would continue to protect civilians as long as threats remained in Libya. She said: 'I am proud to stand here on the soil of a free Libya. The United States was proud to stand for you in your fight for freedom and we will continue to stand with you as you continue this journey. This is Libya's moment. This is Libya's victory and the future belongs to you.'(Daily Mail Australia. 21st October 2011).
To call Hiliary Roddam Clinton an evil, conniving elitist would be a compliment!
After plundering Libya's wealth and resources, what did the Obama Administration do for Libya? Nothing... apart from sinking it into the quagmires of poverty and debt and allowing Islamic extremists to run roughshod over the population, institute revenge killings and open up slave markets:
Black Africans are being sold in open-air slave markets, and it’s Hillary Clinton’s fault. But you won’t hear much about that from the news media or the foreign-policy pundits, so let me explain. Footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets. And how did we get to this point? As the BBC reported back in May, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Muhammar Gadhafi in October 2011.” (USA TODAY. November 28, 2017)
The criminal actions committed by the Obama Administration were not only applied internationally but were directed against the American people, the welfare of whom Obama chose to ignore for the bigger picture. Such actions were again, in breach of the US Constitution. Obama, for example, violated the Fifth Amendment, which declares that "no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law," with the avowed assassination of at least three American citizens, Anwar Al-Awlaki, his 16-year-old son, and Samir Khan, without the benefit of due process. The death warrants against these individuals were signed in secret, in a committee which was overseen by Obama himself.
Along with George Bush Jr's Administration, Obama also violated the Fourth Amendment which declares that:
the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
One may recall, how, under the Bush Jr Administration, Marxists like Bertlet and his Public Research Association were up in arms against such flagrant violations, calling the Bush Jr regime Neo-Nazis and fascists, they argued for the impeachment of Bush and others for "crimes against humanity." The nature of this phony campaign for human rights, is what Soviet-era dissident Igor Shafarevich called "totalitarian theatre," the actors in this case being Marxist organizations who exploited the democratic rights of the people, not out of concern for them, or democracy but as a means to advance their agenda, and at the time, Obama's bid for the presidency, spearheaded with an election promise to lift restrictions on freedom created by Bush, but once in power, Obama radically increased the restrictions! A neat little Alinskyite trick.
Remember, before he was first elected, how Obama promised to bring those evil Wall Street/Federal Reserve "One-percenters" who caused the debt crisis (who he ranted against on the campaign trail ) to justice? How he promised to bring peace to the Middle East? To decrease America's involvement in foreign governments and to bring the troops home? The gullible public swallowed it hook, line and sinker. Besides, Obama was black, what could he possibly do wrong? However, a short time after being elected he did the opposite of what he promised – a Marxist strategy. He increased the troop build-up in the Middle East, invaded sovereign countries, bailed out bankers and corporations (largely responsible for America and the world's then-current economic crisis) and to add insult to injury, employed Ben Bernanke - head of the Federal Reserve, a private banking institution, during that crisis - as his financial adviser! (E.L. Andrews New York Times. Obama to Nominate Bernanke to 2nd Term at Fed. August 24, 2009).
Obama, despite his promises to restore democracy if elected, reinforced and added a host of oppressive dictatorial measures to the anti-democratic Patriot Act, The Home and Security Act and The Military Tribunals Acts, along with many "PRA" inspired laws and amendments that did not restrict their interpretation of terrorism to Islamic terrorism or the lunatic Right, but had a broad application that empowered the government, unconstitutionally, against the people: to search and seize a citizen's papers and effects without probable cause; to monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity; to prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they release government subpoenaed information related to an alleged investigation, and to jail citizens without being charged or being able to challenge witnesses against them. These undemocratic, repressive edicts were straight out of the Frankfurt School's rulebook, on how, step by step, to impose communism "from within" through lies, deception and manipulation.
One can see how neatly Berlet's PRA propaganda agenda complemented the Obama Administration's underlying Deep State NWO objectives, and how it could be applied to anyone who writes, thinks, or behaves suspiciously with "rising populist rage." What is most important for the reader to realize, is fundamentally US Government policy and direction never change, and the only agenda consistently promoted is that of the Deep State, which is not only Marxist inspired, but whose long term goals are focused on imposing such a system on the entire world, to which we are several steps closer today in 2022.
During his second term in office, Obama again spat in the face of his constituents and showed nothing but contempt for the Constitution by expanding the Bush Administration's program of warrantless interception by the National Security Agency of the electronic communications of millions of Americans. What were the response of comrade Berlet and his phony protectors of freedom and the Constitution, the Political Research Association? – nothing! In fact, they ignored the Constitution and the American people, siding with the Obama Administration, turning a blind-eye to unconstitutional policy violations against US citizens, and sanctioning acts of war against other nations who posed no threat to America and its people.
Today, the long march through the institutions towards totalitarianism in the US and elsewhere is well underway and breaking new ground. The so-called COVID-19 pandemic, being yet another tool in the arsenal of the Left, with which to manipulate and consolidate control over the masses, censor and destroy all opposition, and deliberately stifle economic development by destroying what remains of free market economies, human rights and constitutional government, as they prepare for the Great Reset, the Green New Deal, the destruction of the middleclass, the forced redistribution of wealth, the suppression of all criticism and opposition, in other words, the New World Order - the dawn of left-wing Fascism!
It was the Obama Administration, more than any other in US history, who applied Alinskyite tactics with razor sharp precision, attempting to damage and cut as many ties and safe guards the American people had to their Constitution, whilst tightening and extending the grip of totalitarian power from within educational, financial, industrial and government institutions.
