( Authors Note: I want to thank all the readers who commented on The Rise of the American Patriot, as it not only affirmed that indeed we are a true brand of American but refined my understanding of the phenomenon we have been analyzing for the last year. I am reminded again of the urgency of this ‘battle of our lifetimes’ and put forth here a first set of strategies to tackle the restoration of the republic head-on.)
See Update at End of Article
This article begins the process of building a Toolbox for Patriots, a set of Practices for Patriots—in direct contrast to Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals’—to restore our Constitutional Republic. I will build from the framework of previous articles on this blog and in particular focus on the guideposts identified in The Rise of the American Patriot.
I guess this toolbox would be more aptly described as a tackle box—for not only are we working in numerous areas and with layers of flies, worms, lead, hooks, line, and sinkers stacked on top of each other, but we intend to use these tools to uncover and tackle the biggest fish in the pond.
There were five “guideposts” within which I posited that we can view most, if not all of Obama’s actions and use of words to further his extreme left agenda which is disguised, for now, as liberalism. These guidelines were:
• The pathology of Obama
• The use of tactics to overwhelm and hypnotize
• The creation of manufactured crises in the economic, foreign affairs, and military arena
• Socialism/Communism/far left ideology disguised as ‘liberalism’ or ‘democrat’
• Erosion of the constitution
I further posited that Obama’s placement in office was opportunistic—timed for the appearance of certain conditions—and that the organizational efforts used to place him in office had been planned for a very long time. The primary and the election were both illusions in this context, a grand deception. A demoralized public was easily deceived as shown by the ‘election’ of 2008.
This essay will focus on the element of deception as applied to the totality of the guidelines above. Deceit is a necessary operating component of how Obama presents and hides himself; of the tactics used to overwhelm the public; of ‘manufactured crises’; of confusing terminologies; and of continuing the erosion of the Constitution.
It is not surprising then, that the first element of our tackle box consists of understanding and unmasking deception. The term “worm” has a whole new meaning now. And the decoding of “w.o.r.m” pursuant to a set of understandings is one of the tools in our tackle box.
The Deception of the Man & Agenda
The term ‘deception’ is defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as
…the act of deceiving, or performing a trick, or the acts or practices of one who deliberately deceives. Synonyms include fraud , double-dealing , subterfuge , and trickery. Deception may or may not imply blameworthiness, since it may suggest cheating or merely a tactical resource ; fraud always implies guilt and often criminality in act or practice ; double-dealing suggests treachery or at least action contrary to a professed attitude; subterfuge suggests the adoption of a stratagem or the telling of a lie in order to escape guilt or to gain an end ; and trickery implies ingenious acts intended to dupe or cheat .
Of all these synonyms, the one that applies in broad scope to Obama, in my opinion, is subterfuge, the adoption of a strategy of lies, or telling lies in order to gain an end. As a child, he probably used subterfuge lied his ass off to escape guilt, responsibility for his actions, and to cover his drug use and aberrant behavior.
Subterfuge seems similar in practice to the Muslim concept Al-taqiyya, which means concealing or hiding one’s beliefs. Muslims are permitted to lie: (1) to save their lives, (2) to reconcile a husband and wife, (3) to persuade a woman into a bedroom and (4) to facilitate one on his journey. Muslims are even permitted to disavow Islam and Mohammed if it is not a genuine heart-felt rejection. Muslims will tell you that concealment of a truth is not an abandonment of that truth if it benefits Islam.
We are confident that Obama has adopted a strategy of deception regarding all aspects of his being, his agenda, the tactics he uses, and his plans for America’s economic, foreign policy, and military affairs. He practices deception every time he claims he loves the Constitution, America and Americans, but to what end, and for whom?
As the pace of Obama’s agenda picks up, the deception surrounding his plans grows furiously, and appears to be ‘sloppy around the edges’, or more visible. As Bud White spoke of in his article on Obama’s socialism,
“Obama’s constant dissembling is on public display; his tactic of saying one thing and doing another is taking its toll on his support from the middle of the electorate.”
In taking the mask off Obama, Bud White further posited that a real battle is going on within the Democratic Party between those far left radicals democrats disguised as ‘liberals’ versus the true blue dog, conservative, central democrats. The disguise he refers to is the same as deception. For Obama, recall that the person with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder also appears sane, normal, even intelligent. That is a core deception. And it is this disguise that makes him so dangerous.
It is critically important for Obama to continue putting into place the mechanisms for the destabilization of America BEFORE we the people have figured out a way to stop the runaway train. He will use deception wherever he can because it is a key weapon in his personal and political arsenal and because we are vulnerable to it right now.
Thus our tool box must tackle what is beneath the deception—the use of “words, just words”, to mask the real agenda. Pull the first drawer of the tackle box out, and it is filled with little ‘deception boxes’, a fly or worm for every occasion. We can pretty nearly name all those deceptions and the lures he uses to capture Americans.
The Patriot’s Tool Box contains the code for all those deceptions.
The Deception of Ideologies
We all have our theories of ‘who is behind’ Barack Obama, and I have to say a lot of them seem credible to me. But if we factor in the use of deception, it becomes more complicated to determine who and what is actually going on because of the deliberate confusion of terms, concepts, and words.
For example, by his actions for the bank bailout and stimulus package, Obama is behaving as a supporter of capitalism, or more correctly, corporatism, and one immediately thinks of the Federal Reserve, the Bilderbergers, the CFR, and the Trilateral Commission. But other aspects of Obama’s behavior, statements, actions (such as the move to nationalize the auto industry), and proposed legislation brings to mind the anti-capitalist doctrines of revolutionary Marxism, communism, socialism, black liberation, and far left ideology.
When you consider his anti-American associations, and the timing of his ascension to power, these influences track almost exactly with the communist goals for destroying America. And he is schooled in the use of the Cloward-Piven strategy for destroying capitalism through manufacturing social unrest, and Alinsky techniques to implement his here-to-fore hidden agenda. He loves the power and money that comes with being POTUS, but he continues to mock America in actions, excessive spending, pronouncements, speech, and in his thoughtless, shallow and transparent callousness—the only thing that is transparent about him.
The deliberate deceit is the practice of confusion—he is intending for us to throw around all these terms as we try to figure him out—only to label us ‘tin foil hatters’, ‘birthers’, and “McCarthy-ites, shooting at every commie behind the bush”—as objects of ridicule or concerned about ‘things in the past’. “Get over it, I won”– as if it was some kind of football game instead of the entire fabric of “America”– is what I would call a ‘dumbed down’ deception, designed to engage (and denigrate) us emotionally and turn off our critical minds.
To effectively call out deception means knowing your terms. So the O’tackle Box includes a dictionary of terms, supplemented by lots of examples of Obama’s tricks, worms, and lures in the form of speeches, words, youtubes, off-the-cuff remarks, legislation, executive orders, in military, economic, social, and foreign policy affairs. Using these terms, we continue to disassemble Barack Obama by coldly unmasking his objectives.
- Capitalism, Democracy, & Constitutional Republic
According to this site, capitalism cannot be defined solely in economic terms, but must also be defined politically so as to understand the kind of governmental system that is required for capitalism to flourish. As explained in the linked article:
“”Capitalism” is conventionally defined along economic terms such as the following:
An economic system in which the means of production and distribution are privately or corporately owned and development is proportionate to the accumulation and reinvestment of profits gained in a free market.
This is an example of a definition by non-essentials. An essential definition of capitalism is a political definition:
Capitalism is a social system based on the principle of individual rights.
In order to have an economic system in which “production and distribution are privately or corporately owned”, you must have individual rights and specifically property rights. The only way to have an economic system fitting the first definition is to have a political system fitting the second definition. The first is an implication of the second. Because the second, political, definition is fundamental and the cause of the first, it is the more useful definition and is preferable.
It is important to define “Capitalism” correctly because a proper definition is a prerequisite to a proper defense. Capitalism is the only moral political system because it is the only system dedicated to the protection of rights, which is a requirement for human survival and flourishing. This is the only proper role of a government. Capitalism should be defended vigorously on a moral basis, not an economic or utilitarian basis.”
From the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness –That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men...
This article obviously explicitly links the economic and philosophical aspects of capitalism to the principles embodied in the American system of government, based on a Constitution which protects individual rights.
Does capitalism necessarily mean a democracy? A democracy includes “those whose political orientation favors government by the people or by their elected representatives.” A “Democratic Republic” is political system in which a country is ruled by law, has representative government, and is democratic in nature.
America is a Constitutional Republic. A Constitutional Republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government’s power over citizens. In a constitutional republic, executive, legislative and judicial powers are separated into distinct branches and the will of the majority of the population is tempered by protections for individual rights so that no individual or group has absolute power. The fact that a constitution exists that limits the government’s power makes the state constitutional.
Is Barack Obama a capitalist? Does he believe in and act on democracy? Does he favor or respect a Constitutional Republic? In my opinion, he is none of these.
• Of course he would say he is a capitalist by bailing the banks out (economic definition), but publicly implies or blames ‘excessive capitalism’ and individual wealth (‘American Dream’) as a socially (racially) criminal and subject to reduction and redistribution.
• Sure he would say he believes in democracy, but callously intimidates his way into power by eliminating large groups of people or controlling them. He loves his power as Executive—notice he has not repealed any of the most anti-democratic, authoritarian orders of the Bush administration.
• Of course he will say he is a constitutional professor so he respects the constitution and constitutional republic. But he has evaded all scrutiny on his constitutional obligation to identify himself, flubbed the oath of office, reverses US policy without requisite discussion or analysis, and employs petty thug tactics to intimidate defenders of the constitution.
Communism is a theory advocating elimination of private property and individual rights through revolutionary class struggle to an economic system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed.
The doctrine is based on revolutionary Marxism and Marxism-Leninism that was the official ideology of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which holds that human actions and institutions are economically determined and that class struggle is needed to create historical change. According to Marx, capitalism will ultimately be superseded by communism.
Communism itself represented to Marx the final stage of revolutionary change, in which the state has withered away and economic goods are distributed equitably. However, no system based on this theory to date has reached the final ideal state as indeed, most communist regimes are totalitarian systems of government in which a single authoritarian party controls state-owned means of production.
By exposing Obama’s mentors through our collective research, we clearly have identified his communist orientation, but it is admittedly clouded by his mother and mentors’ probable association with the CIA and the communists in America, Hawai’i, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Africa. Is the CIA link another deception?
Americans have been warned about the Communist agenda for the take down and take over of America for decades. In a 1963 speech before Congress, Florida Representative A. S. Herlong, Jr. introduced for the record the goals of the Communist Party at a hearing on threats to America. Of the 40+ goals listed in this agenda a few caught my eye as they are quite similar to both Obama’s actions and the Congress’ activities in the last few decades:
• (3)Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
• (11)Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
• (29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis
• (15). Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
• (16) Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
• (17). Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
• (19). Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
• (20). Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policy making positions.
• (21). Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
• (30)Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
• (31). Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
• (32). Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
Anyone else think we are in deep doo-doo?
Socialism refers to any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. In a socialist society there is no private property. Socialism is a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.
In all instances the fall of capitalism begins with social unrest where ultimately the government steps in to control production and distribution of all goods and services. Dependency on the government is enhanced.
Fascism is a philosophy or system of government that is marked by stringent social and economic control, a strong, centralized government usually headed by a dictator, and often a policy of belligerent nationalism. It is strictly anti-communist.
There have been numerous essays on the similarity of Obama’s proposals to the development of Hitler’s youth corps and Brown Shirts; the FEMA camps; and the deployment of the military to civilian areas. Obama’s campaign and governing practices have elements of fascism, again disguised as “national service for America”.
- The Method of Revolution: Revolutionary Marxism, Black Liberation, Maoism
Each one of these political ideologies, and their role in shaping the evolution of “American Left” would take pages to describe. I will offer brief descriptions here, links, and a preliminary observation that each of these ideologies are based on Marxism and differ regarding who is supposed to be the revolutionary force, how a revolution is to be conducted and how long it occurs, and who ends up in control.
Black Liberation Theology. One of the pillars of Obama’s home church, Trinity United Church of Christ, is “economic parity.” Originally on the website, Trinity claims that God is not pleased with “America’s economic mal-distribution.” Among all of controversial comments by Jeremiah Wright, the idea of massive wealth redistribution is the most alarming. The code language “economic parity” and references to “mal-distribution” is nothing more than channeling the economic views of Karl Marx. Black Liberation theologians have explicitly stated a preference for Marxism as an ethical framework for the black church because Marxist thought is predicated on a system of oppressor class (whites) versus victim class (blacks).
In 1979, Cornel West offered a critical integration of Marxism and black theology in his essay, “Black Theology and Marxist Thought” because of the shared human experience of oppressed peoples as victims. West sees a strong correlation between black theology and Marxist thought because “both focus on the plight of the exploited, oppressed and degraded peoples of the world, their relative powerlessness and possible empowerment.” This common focus prompts West to call for “a serious dialogue between Black theologians and Marxist thinkers” — a dialogue that centers on the possibility of “mutually arrived-at political action.”
In his book Prophesy Deliverance, West believes that by working together, Marxists and black theologians can spearhead much-needed social change for those who are victims of oppression. He appreciates Marxism for its “notions of class struggle, social contradictions, historical specificity, and dialectical developments in history” that explain the role of power and wealth in bourgeois capitalist societies. A common perspective among Marxist thinkers is that bourgeois capitalism creates and perpetuates ruling-class domination — which, for black theologians in America, means the domination and victimization of blacks by whites. America has been over run by “White racism within mainstream establishment churches and religious agencies,” writes West.
Maoism. Maoism is a refinement of Marxism-Leninism wherein the disenfranchised classes are given maximum power and privileges while the former privileged classes are outlawed and divested of all power. Unlike the earlier forms of Marxism-Leninism in which the urban proletariat was seen as the main source of revolution, and the countryside was largely ignored, Mao focused on the peasantry as a revolutionary force which, he said, could be mobilized by a Communist Party (the vanguard of the revolution) with their knowledge and leadership.
A key concept that distinguishes Maoism from other left-wing ideologies is the belief that the class struggle continues throughout the entire socialist period, as a result of the fundamental antagonistic contradiction between capitalism and communism. Even when the proletariat has seized state power through a socialist revolution, the potential remains for the bourgeoisie to restore capitalism. Indeed, Mao famously stated that “the bourgeoisie [in a socialist country] is right inside the Communist Party itself”, implying that corrupt Party officials would subvert socialism if not prevented.
The model for this was of course the Chinese Communist rural insurgency of the 1920s and 1930s, which eventually brought the Communist Party of China to power. Furthermore, unlike other forms of Marxism-Leninism in which large-scale industrial development was seen as a positive force, Maoism made all-round rural development the priority. Mao felt that this strategy made sense during the early stages of socialism in a country in which most of the people were peasants.
Unlike most other political ideologies, including other socialist and Marxist ones, Maoism contains an integral military doctrine and explicitly connects its political ideology with military strategy. In Maoist thought, “political power comes from the barrel of the gun” (one of Mao’s quotes), and the peasantry can be mobilized to undertake a “people’s war” of armed struggle involving guerrilla warfare in three stages……
The Black Panthers, Weather Underground, Students for Democratic Society, and similar groups have fashioned their ideology and practices from a combination of the ideologies listed above. Many of these groups had an affinity for violence, robbery, and murder. Of course ACORN and affiliated entities fit in nicely here as ‘agents’ of agitation and promotion of civil unrest.
Elements of Obama’s ‘revolutionary’ strategy can be found in the deliberate exacerbation of race and class division and social unrest. Whether it is the communist, socialist, or Maoist view, or the ’simple mandatory youth service’, the idea is to develop a ‘revolutionary force’ that brings about the drastic change dear leader wants.
Under any of these ideologies discussed above, “the people” are nothing but pawns, the “masses” to manipulated and herded into this corner or that one. WE are the collateral damage of these ideological games that have plagued earth for so long.
Defeating the Deception
Having focused on deception as a grand tool in Obama’s arsenal, we can now disassemble this trickery: indeed, this is the first element of our tackle box. A dictionary. For each word, phrase, and action, the deception is illuminated because we know the terms and his overall modus operandi.
So let’s be clear to this point: Obama is, and Congress has been, pursuing an anti-capitalist, anti-American agenda that is based on the degradation and weakening of America in key areas. Just like we were attacked on September 11, 2001, Obama’s opportunistic agenda includes the wrecking of the American economy, the evisceration of and retreat in the military arena, the disarming of America under the guise of it’s ‘moral superiority’, and the deliberate destabilization of foreign affairs.
Under the cover of ‘stimulus’, and ‘economic recovery’, and blah blah, he becomes transparent, actually: Obama’s moves to nationalize banks, interfere with the auto industry, nationalize health care, stimulate class warfare, and enforce the use of green energy demonstrate both his communist tendencies and willingness to push the United States toward the “transition point” of socialism that lies between capitalism and communism.
What I am proposing is that for each element of Obama’s strategy, it is possible to identify the ‘capitalist’ language he will use to hide his communist, socialist, fascist agenda and revolutionary tactics. For every personal act, overwhelming tactic, manufactured event, confusion of terms, and action on elements of the Constitution, Obama will sound like he supports capitalism and the principles of a Constitutional Republic, but his actions will reveal the communist, socialist, fascist, and revolutionary aspects of his agenda. In your “spare time”, you can now fill out the table below, and stuff it in the tackle box.
…………………Capitalism Communism Socialism Fascism Mao, BR
Bud White shared this article written by Charles Krauthammer, who has his own views of Obama’s agenda, not dissimilar to what we have discussed here:
Obama has far different ambitions. His goal is to rewrite the American social compact, to recast the relationship between government and citizen. He wants government to narrow the nation’s income and anxiety gaps. Soak the rich for reasons of revenue and justice. Nationalize health care and federalize education to grant all citizens of all classes the freedom from anxiety about health care and college that the rich enjoy. And fund this vast new social safety net through the cash cow of a disguised carbon tax.
Obama is a leveler. He has come to narrow the divide between rich and poor. For him the ultimate social value is fairness. Imposing it upon the American social order is his mission.
