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

by False Flag Saturday, Nov. 01, 2008 at 7:51 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. Obamas 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 todays 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 Obamas 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 Obamas 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 yesterdays 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
Brzezinskis 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 $300 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. Gores Green Army will be available for strikebreaking. It might also undertake a March on Washington in the spirit of Benito Mussolinis October 1922 March on Rome. Will Gores 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 Obamas health care plan, highlighting Obamas refusal to support universal health care. Krugman is obviously horrified by Obamas 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 years 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 Obamas 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 Sharps 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 todays 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 Obamas 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 expos 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 expos 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 groups 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 Democracys 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 Brzezinskis 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 Obamas 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 Bushs 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.
