E-Book of Tarpley's "Obama: Postmodern Coup The Making of a Manchurian Candidate

by False Flag Saturday, Nov. 01, 2008 at 12:51 PM

This book exposes Obama, but it does so from a standpoint that is fundamentally different from almost all other critical studies seen so far. The basic thesis shared by the authors of this book is that Obama is a right-winger, an elitist, a creature of Wall Street, and a deeply troubled personality, running far to the right of his main opponent, Sen. Clinton, on all major issues, including the two critical areas of economics and foreign policy.

Preface: The Need to Expose Obama from the Left

“Where did you get a public opinion that we should fully disarm

and then, according to some theoreticians, such as Brzezinski,

divide our territory into three or four states? If there is such a public

opinion, I would disagree with it.” – Russian President Vladimir

Putin, June 4, 2007.

This book exposes Obama, but it does so from a standpoint that is

fundamentally different from almost all other critical studies seen so

far. This book exposes and refutes Obama from the left.

In this book, the vague and vapid messianic and utopian platitudes,

the lemming legions, the personality cult, the narcissism, the

megalomania, the fake polling, the media and intelligence agency

manipulation which are the essence of Obama and his campaign of

mass manipulation are criticized thoroughly, but always from a

standpoint which reaches back to the Franklin D. Roosevelt New

Deal, in many ways the best government that America has ever

known. The basic thesis shared by the authors of this book is that

Obama is a right-winger, an elitist, a creature of Wall Street, and a

deeply troubled personality, running far to the right of his main

opponent, Sen. Clinton, on all major issues, including the two critical

areas of economics and foreign policy. Obama’s ultra-left

components, concentrated in social and energy policy, are an

ideological camouflage which only accentuates, and does not alter,

his overall pro-Wall Street profile. Obama is a right-winger, and this

book criticizes him from the left. This, it turns out, is by far his most

vulnerable flank in today’s crisis of simultaneous wars and economic


Other studies of Obama can be divided into three main groups.

First are those which approach their subject with transparent adulation and hero worship. This is the majority of the treatments of Obama coming out of the liberal and left liberal community, and these studies are so biased as to be basically worthless. The authors are often the limousine liberals and wealthy elitists and their publicists, and these persons tend to make up Obama’s most devoted base.

Next are those, like Shelby Steele or Bill Sammon, who approach

Obama from a right-wing or neocon point of view. Sometimes, if the

author is an intelligent reactionary (a rarity), these studies can offer

useful perceptions. But generally they fall far short of comprehending

their subject because of the distortions inherent in right-wing or

neocon ideology itself. Sometimes the results are almost comical:

right-wing critics try to portray Obama as a communist, when his

pedigree is that of a controlled asset of the Ford Foundation and the

Trilateral Commission, both important centers of coordination for the

Anglo-American finance oligarchy. And the list is even longer: not

just Ford and Trilateral, but also Bilderberger, Council on Foreign

Relations, Skull and Bones, RAND Corporation, Chicago School,

Woodrow Wilson Center – all of them are backing Obama.

The rightists speculate that Obama will surrender to the supposed

global jihad, whereas his true goal is to launch his own apocalyptic

global hyper-jihad against Pakistan, China, and Russia, in conformity

with the prescriptions of his guru and svengali, the marplot Zbigniew

Brzezinski. Obama is the darling of the failed and bankrupt elites:

Brzezinski, Jay Rockefeller, George Soros, Paul Adolph Volcker,

General Merrill “Bomb Now, Die Later” McPeak, Joseph Nye of the

Trilateral-Bilderberger complex, and the notorious ruling class coverup artist Lee Hamilton are all in Obama’s amen corner. The rightwingers then try to portray Obama as a Moslem, whereas he

obviously worships at the Ford Foundation Church of the

Counterinsurgency, where the racist provocateur Jeremiah Wright

purveys a Gnostic synthetic religion totally distinct from both

Christianity and Islam. They try to portray Obama as a left liberal,

whereas he exhibits in fact many of the features of what is being

increasingly recognized as postmodern fascism. All of these rightwing and neocon attempts to understand the Obama phenomenon are thus crippled by an attempt to make this candidate and his supporters fit into ideological schemes left over from the Cold War, or else from the post-9/11 era. But the Cold War is long gone, and the post-9/11 era is rapidly fading into yesterday’s headlines, even as the Brzezinski faction gears up for the global showdown with Moscow, Beijing, and the other capitals of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

The net result of all the right-wing and neocon studies of Obama is

to vastly underestimate the danger that he poses, both in terms of

world-wide thermonuclear confrontation (the likely outcome of

Brzezinski’s endgame), as well as in terms of the transformation of

the US society and economy towards postmodern fascism. The

postmodern fascist danger is not confined to Obama: the radical

environmental charlatan Al Gore has just announced his intention to

spend 0 million to create a private army of 10 million –

Malthusian fanatics who will coerce politicians and society in general

into implementing global warming countermeasures. These will

obviously include reductions in the standard of living, and speculative bonanzas for Gore and his clique of elitists. Gore’s Green Army will be available for strikebreaking. It might also undertake a March on Washington in the spirit of Benito Mussolini’s October 1922 March on Rome. Will Gore’s environmental storm troopers wear green shirts? If they do, they will join the tradition of the green-shirted Romanian Iron Guards of Codreanu, an imitator of Il Duce. Not surprisingly, Obama has announced that Gore will be prominent and influential in the future regime of the Illinois messiah.

A third class of critical analysis regarding Obama comes from

writers who can generally be reckoned to the center-left of the

Democratic Party. These are often individuals of courage and

character who have distinguished themselves in the battles of the pastdecade against the monstrous excesses of the Republicans and the Bush regime. Ambassador Joseph Wilson, the husband of Valerie Plame, one of the leading public adversaries of the Bush regime, has written eloquently of the support he and his wife received from the Clintons during their battles with the Bush neocons, at a time when the struggle-averse Obama was AWOL, as he always has been in moments when decisive action was required. Professor Paul Krugman of Princeton has fought many a skirmish with Bush & Co. over recent years, and has now developed in his New York Times columns an indepth critique of Obama’s health care plan, highlighting Obama’s refusal to support universal health care. Krugman is obviously horrified by Obama’s pseudo-movement of militant Kool-Aid drinkers, and has focused attention on the venomous, personality cult aspects of the Obamakins. Professor Sean Wilentz, who defied the reactionary Republican clique during the Clinton impeachment hearings ten years ago, has established beyond any doubt that it is Obama, not the Clintons, who must bear responsibility for introducing racial polarization into this year’s presidential campaign. We must also mention Keidi Obi Awadu of the LIB Radio Network in Los Angeles and Glen Ford of the Black Agenda Report, two authentic, intelligent and critical black voices who have not hesitated to offer criticism of Obama. These studies by people who have really been fighting Bush, Cheney, and the neocons convey deserved contempt for Obama’s hollow claim that he is an agent of change.

In addition to these valuable critiques, however, the authors of this

book are convinced that there is also much to be gained from an

analysis which proceeds from a New Deal (or American System

traditionalist) perspective.

A central thesis of this book is that the Obama agitation should not

be seen as a political campaign of the customary type, but rather as a strange hybrid between a political campaign and a relatively new type of covert operation of the intelligence agencies. The initial thrust of the Obama campaign was the attempt to achieve nomination by acclamation through a surprise people power coup or color revolution employing the same repertoire of techniques which the CIA, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the Soros foundations, the Brzezinski clique, and Gene Sharp’s Albert Einstein Institute have carried out recently in such places as Belgrade, Serbia; Tiflis, Georgia; and Kiev, Ukraine. Something similar is afoot in Tibet and in the rest of China.

These color revolutions have exhibited common features like a

telegenic demagogue, generous CIA-NED support in cash and

narcotics, the cynical gaming of existing political customs and party

rules, savvy exploitation of the internet, fake polling, media hysteria,

catchy slogans and colors to establish branding, and the widespread

use of rent-a-mobs and dupe-a-mobs of swarming adolescents. For

the first time in many years, the left wing of the CIA-NED-Soros-

Ford complex is assuming center stage inside this country. The last

time the left-liberal wing of the intelligence agencies assumed similar

importance in domestic affairs was the catastrophic and abortive

Carter administration of 1977-1981, which was controlled and ruined

by some of the same people, notably Brzezinski, who are running

Obama today. In fact, we can extrapolate from the disasters of the

Carter years to develop estimates of the far worse horrors which a

future Obama regime would surely bring.

As of this writing, it would appear that a congeries of defeated and

discredited Democratic politicians and party bureaucrats (Dean,

Brazil, Leahy, and others) are more than willing to split the

Democratic Party by convoking an illegal rump mini-convention

sometime in June or July in order to short-circuit the stipulated party

calendar and deliver the Democratic nomination into the hands of

Obama, an intrinsically weak candidate who has never won public

office in a seriously contested election, and who has now been

mortally wounded by his 20-year devotion to the racist firebrand

Jeremiah Wright. If the Dean-Brazil-Leahy clique should persist in

their design, they will join the tradition of those infamous

Confederates and Copperheads who bolted from the legitimate

Democratic National Convention in Baltimore in June 1860 after the

nomination had been fairly won by Stephen A. Douglas, and formed

their own rump convention at the Maryland Institute, where they

nominated the pro-slavery John C. Breckinridge. The main saboteur

of party unity was Caleb Cushing, the King of the Doughfaces, who

sabotaged the legal convention and then defected to preside over the rump, illegal one.

The Doughfaces in those days were northern men with pro-slavery

principles; Dean qualifies as a self-styled Democrat with Republican

principles, so maybe Doughface will prove to be a good term for

people like him. Howard Dean, Chairman Ho-Ho, thus takes his place

as the new Caleb Cushing, the new top Doughface of our time. That

1860 Democratic Party split was a prelude to all the greatest of all

horrors, civil war. What will a Democratic Party split bring this time

around? Rather than wait to find out, it is time to oust Dean, Brazil,

and their DNC retinue. Let Obama and Dean found their own ultraleft

financier-backed Elitist Party, which could then take its chances

against a reinvigorated blue-collar, New Deal Democratic Party

attuned to the needs of working people. In today’s Bush economic

depression, the outcome could hardly be in doubt.

Looking further forward to the Democratic National Convention in

Denver (August 25-28, 2008), we can already see the left CIA-NED

and their domestic tentacles planning to stage an outburst of mob

activism and ochlocracy in favor of Obama’s increasingly embattled

candidacy. Rent-a-mobs and dupe-a-mobs of swarming adolescents

will be projected across the television screens of the nation and the

world in an attempt to establish the idea that the Illinois elitist is the

true choice of the people. Persons of good will are hereby warned not to capitulate to such an exercise in mass brainwashing by means of cynically created illusions, and not to be stampeded by the planned demagogic media spectacle.

Over the years, I have built up considerable experience in

identifying and analyzing the covert operations of the Anglo-

American intelligence community. My first major work in the field in

1978 was a study of the kidnap-murder of former Italian Prime

Minister Aldo Moro, which was published in Italian in Rome. In 1987

I contributed to a report on the Iran-contra gun-running and drugrunning

operations directed by George H.W. Bush from the Reagan

White House; excerpts of this study are included in this book because they show that the Brzezinski-Huntington Trilateral Commission circles were already planning in the early 1980s (in the immediate aftermath of the fall of their puppet Carter) to abort and destroy the next US political mass upsurge, which they then expected to emerge around 2010, that is to say, in our own current historical time. All indications are that Obama is one of the options artificially prepared by the Trilaterals starting at about that time. This book can therefore be regarded as an exposé of Trilateral machinations which has been in preparation for more than twenty years.

In 1992, I published the first and only unauthorized biography of

George Bush, which included a more definitive account of Iran-contra and related intelligence community operations. After the provocations of September 11, 2001, I turned to an examination of false flag terrorism, which appeared in 2005 as 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA, and since has appeared in French, Italian and Spanish editions.

In this book I advanced the notion that, especially in our times,

historical reality cannot be considered as axiomatically spontaneous,

but must rather be seen as heavily manipulated by the multi-billion

dollar intelligence agencies. I proposed the term super-determination

or surdetermination to express this notion. Obama can be seen as in

the context of this surdetermination.

During 2007, I was active in exposing the efforts of the Cheneyneocon

faction to expand the Middle East war via aggression against

Iran; this included an exposé of Operation Bite, planned for Good

Friday 2007, and the Kennebunkport Warning of late August 2007.

The Kennebunkport Warning represented a remarkable achievement

of intelligence analysis, since it provided an accurate and timely

warning of the Cheney group’s effort to orchestrate an attack on Iran

under the cover of a new false flag attack, and appeared just a few

days before the rogue B-52 incident, in which a long-range strategic

bomber carrying six nuclear-armed cruise missiles was in effect

hijacked by pro-Cheney rogue network elements and flown from

North Dakota to Louisiana, in preparation for a flight to the Gulf –

where the cruise missiles might well have been deployed in

conjunction with the Israeli attack on Syria at the end of the first week

of September, 2007. This incident has never been investigated by

Congress, even though one of the nuclear missiles is reportedly still


I therefore bring to the study of Obama a formidable experience of

analyzing, exposing, and denouncing intelligence operations, ranging

from the central European geopolitical terrorism in the 1970s to

Project Democracy’s Iran-contra, to the 9/11 era. If it can be said that

any person is qualified to identify a covert operation of the

intelligence community, then I hope that this may be said of me.

Speaking with such authority as may be acquired from a lifetime of

experience, I now assert that we are entering a new and more

dangerous era of new-look subversion, for which Obama is intended

to be the unifying figurehead, spokesman, and salesman. Obama thus

represents the most ambitious and dangerous covert operation by the

combined forces of the intelligence community since 9/11.

The emerging predominance of the left CIA and its left liberal

clients was signaled by the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group of late

2006, which called for a diplomatic offensive to recruit more regional

proxies (that is to say, kamikaze stooges and dupes) to save the Wall

Street-City of London world position. Not by accident, Lee Hamilton,

the Democratic co-chair of that effort, is now on board for Obama.

Further progress towards left CIA ascendancy was indicated by the

National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) of December 2007, which

opined that Iran no longer had an active nuclear weapons program,

and thus marked an important moment of transition in terms of USUK

world strategy.

This NIE, which undercut the anti-Iran thrust of the Bush-Cheneyneocon

group, will probably appear in retrospect as the great

watershed between an era of neocon strategy and the new epoch of

world subversion by the Brzezinski group. The ouster of Tony Blair

and his replacement by Gordon Brown was another sign that the Iraq

war cabal of 2003 was on its way out, and that a demagogic left turn

was in the offing. The thesis embodied in this book is that the

likelihood of a direct US attack on Iran is declining, even as the

danger of a direct US attack on Pakistan is rising at an alarming rate.

Instead of further mucking around in the Middle East, Brzezinski is

seeking to marshal all remaining US-UK resources for a final

onslaught on Moscow, Beijing, and the other countries of the

Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the main focal point of world

resistance to London and Washington. This is Brzezinski’s new

Operation Barbarossa. The financiers who control Brzezinski are now

fielding Obama as the plausible public face for a new era of brutal

and bellicose imperialist subversion and geopolitics which will be

advertised on the basis of multiculturalism and dignity through self determination attained through the subversion, balkanization,

partition and subdivision of existing states, instead of the narrow and

venomous Islamophobia which has been the constant and strident

note of the Bush-Cheney neocons.

This brings us again to the fact that Obama’s agitation is not a

traditional political campaign, but far more essentially represents a

carefully planned domestic covert operation of the intelligence

community. Obama is a one-way ticket to conflicts infinitely more

horrendous than those created by the neocons, conflicts that will

require a national mobilization for total war, with privations and

grinding sacrifice that the neocons never dreamed of. Obama will add

to the top-down oppression of Bush’s authoritarian state a new

dimension of totalitarian control enforced by his fanatical followers,

his lemming legions. Once Obama has state power in his hands, these

trends may become irreversible.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bruce Marshall and

Jonathan Mowat for the articles they have contributed to this book.

In this new and appalling situation, I can only offer the watchword

which I learned years ago from a Spanish trade unionist from the coal

mines of Asturias: in the modern world, we have two choices: be

active, or be radio-active. The imperative to get active is more valid

today than ever before.
