Since 2008, even before, we’ve speculated about Barack Obama’s possible connections to the Soviet Union and its communist ideology. We know that Obama’s father, mother, and maternal grandparents were sympathetic to communism, as were many of his friends from Hawaii, Frank Marshall Davis (aka “Uncle Frank”) perhaps chief among them.
Obama himself belonged to or associated with Communist or Marxist organizations throughout his early years in politics, although these facts were carefully kept from the American people during the 2008 campaign.
Because there’s scanty evidence to back up his self-admitted fictional biography, some speculate that Obama may have trained at the Midwest Academy or traveled to Russia during his college years to study as a foreign exchange student at Patrice Lumumba University.
Others have speculated that Obama was a CIA agent, maybe a double agent, because his mother worked for organizations allegedly connected to the CIA or because he took that mysterious, still unexplained trip to Pakistan in 1981, where his mother later, in 1986, worked for the Asian Development bank.
There’s his association with Van Jones, who resigned his position as the “green jobs czar” when his own communist ties were revealed. Let’s not forget Anita Dunn, wife of chief ineligibility defender Robert Bauer, herself an admirer of Chairman Mao. Or Valerie Jarrett. The agency for which Obama worked after graduating from Columbia, Business International Corportaion in New York, has been called a known CIA front.
Then there’s the curiosity of John O. Brennan, former CIA bigwig, who owned a private company that did contract work for the State Department passport office during the 2008 campaign. Simultaneously, Brennan worked for Obama’s campaign; he is currently Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, and Assistant to the President.
In March, 2008, the passport files belonging to Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain were illegally broken into by one of Brennan’s employees. An anonymous source with inside information about the subsequent State Dept. investigation into the breach told Newmax reporter Ken Timmerman that the Clinton and McCain files were peeked at as a smoke screen to cover for the (successful?) attempt to “cauterize” Obama’s files of “embarrassing” information.
What could that embarrassing information have been? Was it his original birth certificate? Or was there other embarrassing information besides whatever he’s hiding on his birth documents?
Might there have also been paperwork that explained the who, what, when, where, why, and how of that most unusual trip to Pakistan?
Obama’s actions since becoming president, and the obviously socialistic themes that run throughout his (far too) many “major” speeches, make it easy to conclude that Obama is a communist, or at least a Marxist socialist, if indeed there is a difference. But does his ideology closely conform to Soviet-style communism?
Not long ago, Vladimir Putin, current prime minister of Russia, soon to be its next president (although the election hasn’t been held yet) referred to America as a “parasite.”
“They are living beyond their means and shifting a part of the weight of their problems to the world economy,” Putin told the pro-Kremlin youth group Nashi while touring its lakeside summer camp some five hours drive north of Moscow.
“They are living like parasites off the global economy and their monopoly of the dollar,” Putin said at the open-air meeting with admiring young Russians in what looked like early campaigning before parliamentary and presidential polls.
(Note: Any resemblance between that lakeside summer camp for pro-Kremlin youths and the island-in-a-lake summer camp for progressive youths at Utoya, Norway, is purely coincidental. Or is it? Read about Heather Booth.)
The Wall Street Journal helpfully supplied some background about the symbolically loaded word “parasite”, as used historically in the Soviet Union:
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin called the U.S. “a parasite” because of its huge debt load, evoking a term used by Soviet leaders to demonize people who didn’t work, study or serve the Communist state. … Charges of parasitism frequently applied to Soviet dissidents and refuseniks, many of whom were intellectuals. Soviet founder Vladimir Lenin used the term after the 1917 revolution to describe the czarist bureaucracy and army, which he targeted for liquidation. Under Joseph Stalin, who himself was denounced as a parasite by his doomed rival Leon Trotsky, parasitism became a crime punished by imprisonment, banishment to remote regions or death, a practice that continued until the Soviet Union’s final years.
So Obama’s ideology MUST differ from Soviet-style communism. Obama loves the elites. He hangs out every Wednesday night with the glitterati, whom he invites to entertain him, his wife, and his particular friends at the White House. He courts their support and admiration. He vacations on Martha’s Vineyard and in Hawaii, staying at the lavish estates of wealthy “friends” or renting them out for $55,000 a week.
Obama prefers to live the high life, as often as possible, using other people’s money. His longest and best friends, like himself, are children of privilege, radical children of wealthy and/or politically connected parents: Valerie Jarrett, Timothy Geithner, Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dorhn, to name the most infamous.
Although he pretends to be “authentically black”, Obama has less in common with underprivileged, inner city blacks than does white rapper Eminem.
Obama hides the truth about his real background, while speaking in many voices. When he speaks to elites, he speaks LIKE the elite that he is, like those of the elite class from which he came.
When he speaks to blacks, however, he’s a parody of Martin Luther King, combined with Malcolm X, and with a little “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright thrown in. He uses black slang, drops his final g’s, puts on a southern black accent, and speaks with a southern black cadence.
When has he ever lived below the Mason Dixon line? (Is 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue considered the South?) It’s a wonder black folk fall for it, instead of being completely insulted.
Obama loves intellectuals so much that he imagines that he is one.
He also loves czarist-style bureaucracy, anathema to Lenin and Stalin, so much so that he has imitated it in his own regime. Witness his shadow government of “czars”, an additional bureaucracy that takes the place of the constitutional and traditional cabinet, which is an executive branch composed of Senate-confirmed appointees.
In effect, the entire executive branch suffers from top-heavy “feather bedding”–duplication of effort and expense, all to evade oversight by the representatives of the people, to avoid the very transparency he promised during the campaign of 2008.
In addition to the regular army, Obama wants his own private army–a
civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded
as the regular Army. A personal Republican Guard? His own private army, like a Third World dictator?
Are the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protesters around the country the beginning of his longed-for civilian ARMY? An army of disaffected youths hoping to overthrow capitalism? Violently, if need be? (A poll of OWS protesters recently showed that as many as a third of them would consider violence as a means to achieve their ends.)
Obama currently presides over a country in which fully half of its citizens pay NO income taxes, with a sizable proportion of them (including ILLEGAL ALIENS) getting “back” from the common coffers a “refund” of taxes NEVER “invested.”
Many of these “folks” seem to fit the old Soviet definition of parasites—those who don’t “work, study or serve the state,” but instead TAKE from the state, feed off it, refuse to contribute to it.
But these are the very people who make up Obama’s “base”.
Witness the Occupiers currently demonstrating across the nation. They are Obama’s base. “Poopstockers” (h/t Gateway Pundit) who sit around in their tent cities, with Blackberries and Ipods in hand, trying to figure out after the fact exactly what it is that they’re protesting, besides not having everything handed to them on a silver platter, courtesy of the 1% of the population they believe has stolen all the wealth from them. Scott Adams , in a recent Dilbert comic, recognized that such people are dupes. Parasites is a perfect word because they want to live off this imaginary host: the “rich”.
Obama insists that the new New Deal yet to be worked out by the Congress (after the failure of the “Super Congress”) must not balance the budget on the backs of the poor and the middle class. He insists that new revenue (aka increased TAXES) must be “fair”. But in his ideal world, what’s fair is that ONLY the “rich” pay taxes, or at least that they pay a disproportionate amount of taxes. But he’s NOT talking about the “rich” who support him, like Warren Buffet, George Soros, or any of the empty-headed but extremely wealthy “celebrities” who shill for him.
Obama has no intention of seeing to it that EVERYONE pays taxes, which in the minds of most people would seem quite “fair.”
How fair is it for half the population to let the other half pay all the income taxes that fund the government, which in turn hands other people’s money to the half who don’t contribute? Or “invest?”
Money flows TO these “parasites” who contribute nothing to the State, or to use their word, to the collective.
Obama and those who support him want as many people as possible on the government dole, because then they will be dependent upon him.
Dependent upon Obama. He doesn’t perceive these people as parasites, even if they don’t work, even if they don’t go to school, even if they contribute nothing to the American “state.”
His supporters in the OWS “movement” proposed giving a “living wage” of $20 per hour to everyone, regardless of whether or not they WORK! Paid simply for living. By whom? The “rich”.
As for liberal elites, Obama also gives them a pass when it comes to shared “sacrifice”. Friend Jeffrey Immelt’s company, GE, paid no taxes last year. How fair is that?
Timothy Geithner, the Secretary of the Treasury, similarly dodged paying his fair share of taxes, as has friend and rabid supporter Senator Claire McCaskill. How fair is that?
We learned recently that Obama’s dear friend and ardent supporter Warren Buffett’s company owes millions in back taxes. How fair is that?
This is the same Buffett who, on cue, called for “the rich” like himself to pay more taxes, just in time for Obama to use Buffett’s “self sacrifice” in a campaign speech.
(But wait! That was during a taxpayer-funded “listening tour” of the Midwest, during which Obama rolled out his Canadian-built, $1 million plus, taxpayer-purchased, gas-hogging armored bus. But we’re assured that was NOT a campaign event.)
The “Buffett rule” is praised by the OWS protesters. Yet the Buffett rule would seem to be:
Avoid paying taxes, by any loophole necessary.
Compare Obama’s ideology to the Soviet Union, where people who “didn’t work, study or serve the Communist state” were called parasites. In this country, we have many who neither work nor study.
Generation after generation, despite welfare “reform”, far too many continue to live off of “the state”, in other words, off of other people who are FORCED by “the state” to support these others who will NOT fend for themselves, even though they are blessed to live in the United States–where DREAMS come true, for those who pursue them.
What do such policies contribute to the common good? Obama’s policies have exploded the dependent class because his policies are intended to make ever more people dependent upon the government. Obama wants redistribution as a form of reparations and retribution. Thus, his pandering to the New Black Panthers.
Saul Alinsky was the darling of the radical progressive left, as is his acolyte Frances Fox Piven. We see their idealogy followed in everything Obama and his czars have done, and in these communist-organized “Occupations” currently taking place across the country, funded by unions and George Soros. Fox Piven herself has shown up to speak at their rallies. Soros’s MoveOn.org has organized meetings across the country, plotting how to “make Wall Street pay.” Pay? For what?
Alinsky, however, was not a Russian-style Marxist:
Alinsky’s tactics were based, not on Stalin’s revolutionary violence, but on the Neo-Marxist strategies of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Communist. Relying on gradualism, infiltration and the dialectic process rather than a bloody revolution, Gramsci’s transformational Marxism was so subtle that few even noticed the deliberate changes.
Like Alinsky, Mikhail Gorbachev followed Gramsci, not Lenin. In fact, Gramsci aroused Stalins’s wrath by suggesting that Lenin’s revolutionary plan wouldn’t work in the West. Instead the primary assault would be on Biblical absolutes and Christian values, which must be crushed as a social force before the new face of Communism could rise and flourish.
Anyone who’s followed the trajectory of Obama’s administration–particularly its connections and his appointees–over the past few years recognizes the
gradualism, infiltration, and the dialectic process
to which we were heretofore relatively blind.
Who knew how far into our culture, our bureaucracy, our schools, our businesses, our government, our NGO community (for lack of a better phrase), these Alinskyites had tunneled, where they existed as parasites, waiting to explode out of America’s gut, like the Alien, as soon as they managed to get one of their own into the White House?
As Obama said,
Now is the time.
For what? For the Neo-Marxist
fundamental transformation of America.
For the tearing down so that America may be rebuilt (transformationally, gradually, subtlely) into the Neo-Marxist image of what America SHOULD BE. As Gramsci said,
All change means disorganization of the old and organization of the new.
We see Gramsci’s goal of disorganization in the actions of these Occupiers. We see it, certainly, in their amoral behavior–drug use, drug dealing, Internet hacking, sexual perversion, racism, anti-Semitism, praise of bestiality, misogyny, even satanism. (Bill Ayers dedicated his book to Satan.)
We see it even more certainly in the recent attempt by MoveOn.org to create, in effect, a run on the banks, trying to throw the economy back into a deeper recession or even a depression. All the better to fundamentally transform America.
All change means disorganization of the old and organization of the new.
What is Barack Hussein Obama II BUT a “community ORGANIZER”?
I suspect, however, that the Neo-Marxists themselves have been deceived by Obama. They were as taken in by an infiltrator as the rest of us. Obama is not a Neo-Marxist. He’s a huckster. He’s not a Neo-Marxist. He’s a Pseudo-Neo-Marxist.
The progressives who so fervently support him had better take a closer look at his background and his beliefs. Does he truly believe in their socialist utopia?
Or does he instead believe in a Kenyan-style dictatorship (like his cousin Raila Odinga longed for) with Obama himself as president for life?
On the other hand, perhaps Obama’s vision is closer to an Indonesian-style dictatorship, like Suharto’s. Suharto was Obama’s role-model, when he was a child. How do we know this?
As a child in Indonesia, Obama spent hours re-enacting Suharto’s speeches, forcing his adopted sister Lia to play the role of his bodyguard/henchman:
Barry very happy listening to Suharto’s speeches on television. “When President Suharto’s speech, Barry wrote it down neatly. After that, he practiced the speech of President Suharto in front of the house, “says Lia. … When listening to speeches, Lia had to stand behind Barry, and should not be allowed to leave the place…
Since we don’t really know exactly who Obama is or what his ancestry is (African or Indonesian), we can’t be certain what his goal is, other than that he longs to be an autocrat like Hugo Chavez. We know this because he said so recently, when he spoke to La Raza:
Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. (Applause.) And believe me, right now dealing with Congress —
AUDIENCE: Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can! Yes, you can!
THE PRESIDENT: Believe me — believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. (Laughter.) I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. (Laughter.) But that’s not how — that’s not how our system works.
AUDIENCE MEMBER: Change it!
To borrow Obama’s phrase, “Now is the time.” Time for us to correct the mistake of 2008. Time for us to do all we can to ensure that Obama does NOT “win” a second term. The future of our Republic depends upon it. Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.
Today is Pearl Harbor Day. December 7, 1941. A day that lives “in infamy.”
That was another time when our country was under attack. So today, remember our honored dead and thank every one of our veterans to whom we owe so much.
And pray for the United States of America.
