Could the end game have begun already, so soon after the great Tea Party awakening, and the general realization of what the game is about? Before the whole population is even aware that there is a game?
"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men?" was the line deeply intoned by the voice over the radio in an old, old, but much beloved regular radio show from a bygone era. We might well ask that very question about what's going on in the geopolitical world today, at this moment in time. Nothing is what it appears to be. I don't know for certain all that's going on behind the scenes, but I do know this:
We are being played.
We have spoken elsewhere in this site about the sneaky, underhanded linkup between Marxism and Islam to cooperate in the cause of increasing global chaos and instability. In a bygone era Islam quietly shook hands with National Socialism and stood with them to oppose the civilized world, so no one should be surprised by this newer uneasy alliance between more sophisticated forms of Marxism, and more sophisticated forms of Islam.
But, Marxism is rabidly atheistic, and Islam is ferociously theocratic, you say; close alliance between them is therefore impossible. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" say both Marxism and Islam. They will work out their religious differences later, after they have cooperated in destroying all other opposition. When their common enemies are no more, then they may turn their guns on each other; but that is for tomorrow, not today. One step at a time.
Some clues have been dropped in the embassy attacks in Egypt and in Libya:
I smell the tactics of Saul Alinsky in all of this.
The current upper echelons of American government are permeated with Alinskyites. (Alinskyites are the sneakiest, most treacherous forms of Marxists, who always work under deep cover, and who are never what they appear to be.) For example, our Secretary of State, Madam Hillary, wrote her college thesis on Saul Alinsky. For another example, our President, Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is another Alinskyite. The only non-academic job he ever held was with an Alinskyite organization called the Deveolping Communities Project, where he was employed as a Communist Agitator. Excuse me, I meant to say Community Organizer. (The two terms are synonymous.) You might say that Madam Hillary and Comrade Obama majored in Alinsky.
And what, exactly, did Professor Saul Alinsky (RIP) teach?
In Refuting Marx we said that Karl Marx, influenced by the evil and treacherous writings of Machiavelli and by the Hegelian Dialectic, sought to incite and induce chaos and revolution on a global scale, to bring down governments using armies of mal-informed "useful idiots" incited by committed agent provocateurs, all of whom were expendable for the cause of the Revolution. This is the evil "The Ends Justify The Means" idea advancing into Western, supposedly Judeo-Christian, mainstream thought. And there it continues to grow and spread. "All is fair in love and war" is an example commonplace derivative notion, seen in song, literature and entertainment. But all is Not fair, in anything. The Ends do not justify any and all means.
But after suffering so many failures and set-backs in attempts at direct "popular" revolution, Marxism survived - and thrived - as a strategy of world conquest by going largely underground and becoming even more treacherous, and even more deceptive, and even more evil. Advances in strategy and tactics included Alinsky's get on the inside and destroy the system from within, in which the revolutionary or his recruited agent-provoacateur would put on a suit and tie, act civilized, play the game according to the rules, by all appearances, but maintain the revolutionary destructive zeal. The Cloward-Piven strategy was developed and deployed, by which armies of Useful-Idiots would be recruited and "Community Organized" into large groups that might
"Popular" revolution is quite impossible in America; therefore, Marxism has had to become far more treacherous, sneaky and underhanded here than anywhere else on earth. But the goal remains the same: to bring down the government and replace it with a typical Marxist dictatorship.
In Refuting Mohammed we said that Islam declared war on us, and on the whole of the non-Islamic world, long before we existed as a nation. Before Columbus sailed. Before the Reformation. Mainstream, mainline Islam declared war on the whole non-Islamic world somewhere around the year of our Lord 600. Read here what the Moslem is instructed - by the irrevocable word of Allah, spoken through the lips of his prophet Mohammed, recorded forever in the Koran - to do to us non-Moslems:
Again, this is mainstream Islam. It is not the Moslem Brotherhood, or any of the groups they gave birth to, such as Al Queda. It is Islam. That is to say, the Moslem Brotherhood is absolutely mainstream, in Islam. It is not a matter of interpretation. No Moslem may oppose or disagree with those words. That is what they are instructed to do, and how they are instructed to behave toward us.
Now, Islam is a theocracy; a radical combination of Church and state, in which ecclesial law and civil law are all contained in one book: the Koran. No law - including our own Constitution - is above the Koran, in the house of Islam. Islam thus seeks not only to convert us out of our own religions, but to rule us via the Koran, and to hell with our Constitution. Others may argue and quibble about Sharia law, and different manifestations of it in different lands - but I'm telling you that the real threat is not Sharia, and not any terrorist group coming out of Islam; the real threat to America, to Israel, and to the whole world, is Islam itself.
Once Islam was militarily beaten back and driven out of Europe, it never recovered its former military capabilities of conquest; nevertheless, the imperative to grow itself and conquer the world remained a vital commandment in the Koran. So, Islam, like Marxism, found other ways.
As we said in Refuting Mohammed, Islam has never changed it’s commitment to continue the march to Ummah. In WWII Islam aligned with the Nazi-Fascist branch of Marxism because of its treatment of the Jews. Over time, Moslems have become Machiavellian in nature. They have adopted The Ends Justify The Means, and become underhanded, sneaky and treacherous, just like the Marxists. In dar al-harb, where we infidels live, Moslems are the most peaceful, wonderful, loving examples of people to be found in the Islamic faith. Until they gain a little more population and a little more power. The Islamic attitude changes, radically and brutally, when and where Islam is in control.
The final goal of Islam is the same as the final goal of Marxism: Borderless, nation-less, one world global government, which is to say, a world dictatorship.
The history of Islam is a history of war and of conquest; the ideology/religion of Islam is one of brutal domination, subjugation, forced submission, misogyny, abuse, torture and murder.
When they gain a strong control of an area of total or near total Islamic population, such as in Dearborn Michigan, they become increasingly beligerent toward the non-Islamic host government, to the point that the host nation may actually have to fight to regain legal control of its own territory. It has become, for them, Dar Al-Islam - the house of Islam - and they will not give it up without a fight to the death. There, so long as they are the occupiers, the only law that may be applied is Islamic law.
If you think it is not the same in Dearborn Michigan as in the various Islamic controlled areas in the environs of Paris France, you are very sadly mistaken.
In Refuting Obama we indicated that Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is not like us, and is not even like the most rabidly Marxist of his American compatriots and allies. He wasn't raised here, and he doesn't really understand America or Americans. He is, by instinct, much more of a raw Marxian than an Alinskyite. Where the Clintons masterfully work the slow, steady Progressive method of advancing the Revolution, Comrade Obama wants all chaos, all instability, all break-down, right now. He wants to bring it on. He is more the old-time Revolutionary, and much less the Progressive or the mere Liberal. While the ultimate goal for all of them is the same, he wants to achieve it all, right now.
Many are puzzled as to why he seems so embarrassingly stupid in his approach to American politics; lately he seems to be committing political suicide almost every time he opens his mouth, or when he does not speak when he clearly should speak. But I don't think he cares too much about whether he wins the 2012 election; he'll take it if that's all he can get, but he would much rather be dictator than President. He will do whatever he thinks he has to do to win the election, but that is not the first thing on his agenda. He would much rather be dictator over a ruined, empoverished, destroyed, burning and warring America than a properly elected President over a strong and prosperous American nation that he loathes and despises.
To that end, he is spending us into economic collapse, printing money to make it worthless, cutting defense and interfering with military effectiveness, insulting and alienating allies, encouraging and befriending enemies, saddling us with impossible and nonsensical law, overriding the Constitution and bypassing Congress at every turn, and generally making a shambles of the American system of government. He is pissing us off, on purpose. Agitation is the name of the game. Instability, anger, chaos and hostility are the necessary ingredients of a radical transformation of the system, which is what he intended from the beginning.
Expanding our view to encompass the geopolitical situation, we see that the rest of the world is in a much more precarious state than America, even as bad as our own situtation is. While we are well along the way down the increasingly steep economic slippery slope, many European nations are now over the cliff. Every time they get some sort of bail-out - which is to say, every time they stupidly try to borrow their way out of debt - the stock market goes up, proving again that the stock market condition has no real world relationship to the state of the world economy, or to any nation's economy. Each bail-out makes the condition worse, not better, and makes the inevitable crash even more unbearable for the population. There is not enough money existing in the world to pay off all that debt, and they keep trying to borrow more just to continue to exist as nations. (And so do we, with all of our ideological Marxists in high office.)
How will all those nations ever get out from under the collapsing Euro? How will they all reestablish their own currencies, and their own national identities? Will European nations, and even the European Union itself, descend into civil war?
When we look to the Obama inspired and encouraged Arab Spring, or Moslem Spring, or Springtime of Democracy all across North Africa and the Middle East, we, for the most part, miss the similarity to the Springtime of Revolution ushered in by the publication of Marx's Communist Manifesto in 1848, when some 50 nations experienced violent Communist revolution. The ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. We miss, or miss-interpret, the growing relationship between Marxism and Islam at our own mortal peril.
The more recent violence involving the storming of American embassies, the murder of an American ambassador and other Americans, the burning of American flags, the raising of Al Queda flags, and the trashing of American property is blamed, by our government, on a movie trailer that very few people have ever seen.
Again, I smell Alinsky.
I have little doubt that this movie trailer, or some description of it, was used to incite some Moslem useful idiots to violence; but these were planned attacks, perhaps part of a larger strategy, timed to begin on September 11. It would not surprise me to learn that the movie itself was made, or made available, or somehow abrogated by Alinskyites as an excuse to be used by our predominantly Alinskyite government leadership to both condemn Judeo-Christianity and excuse outraged Moslems. It's a double whammy for them. It's a more sophisitcated advance of the revolutionary cause.
At any rate, civil war and broader war is ongoing, or on the brink, in the world of Islam.
The risky business of revolution is what this is all about, and Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is a greater risk taker than any of his fellow Democrats. He is more of a Lenin than an Alinsky. The risks are high; they always are; but so are the potential rewards.
The Egyptian chant "Obama, Obama, we are all Osama!" would indicate that there are some Moslems who would like Obama's head on a pike. No big deal; revolution is risky business. There are other Moslems who find him useful. Among Democrats, the Clintons would probably like his head on a pike; and he would like theirs on a pike. But at the moment, they work together in the greater interest of the common cause.
Among the Moslems, the Shia and the Sunni despise each other; yet, they will join together against the rest of the world, just as they did under Saladin. When the rest of the world is under submission, they may turn back to war with each other; but first, they will obey the Koran and conquer the non-Islamic world.
So it has always been in the world of Marxism. Stalin is credited with personally signing millions of death warrants of fellow Communist Party faithful in his purges. There can be only one dictator.
Dictatorship requires revolution; when revolution is not popularly supported, it requires subterfuge, chaos, destabilization and perhaps war. The bigger the war the bigger the opportunity. World War would offer the grand prize. Always, after such grand, multiple-nation conflagrations - the Islamic Conquest; the Crusades; the Reformation; World War I; World War II; there is a major reshuffling of power in the world. Marxist would-be dictators and Moslem would-be Caliphs all hope to capitalize on the situation and make themselves the one who winds up on top.
Failing that, they might become a lesser dictator of a lesser country, or, a high-ranking bureaucrat, or politiocrat, or close adviser to the grand high leader. Chaos, disorder and terror must come first. Out of chaos comes opportunity. Out of chaos comes the Machiavellian champion to restore order and assume the throne. Marxism and Islam, both, see that as the path to dictatorship. They will cooperate, for a time, to achieve it. And Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is prepared to go either way in the end. He can play the Marxist, and he can play the Moslem; what he actually is, is what they all are: the Selfist.
They make fools of the world. While many followers of Marxist ideology, and many followers of Islam, may believe in God, or at least in some higher ideal, none of their leaders do. It's all a sham. They believe only in themselves. Everyone beneath them are merely different layers and types of useful idiots; mere expendable tools to be manipulated and used for special purposes and then discarded.
What are we to do about all this? Steady as she goes.
do Not keep your head down; keep your eye on the ball. Do not be distracted from the fact that Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, intends the destruction of all that we hold dear. This predictable election year "October Surprise" may be a war; perhaps even a world war. Historically American voters rally round the President in any such national emergency.
Don't do it. Don't be fooled.
We have got to get through this next election in the normal way; even if he suspends the Constitution and declares martial law; even if he suspends the election on an emergency basis; somehow, we have got to make it through this next election, or America is lost forever.
He doesn't really know what's going to happen any more than we do. Chaos is unpredictable. His only leg up is that he is the chief instigator of the chaos, but he cannot predict what that chaos will ultimately bring about.
Steady as she goes; keep your eye on the ball.
Fast; pray; prepare.
The Lord will sustain us.

If this is all true then there is nothing we can do, so it’s all over. That cannot be the case. I cannot accept that. If he can suspend the election then what can we do? How can he suspend the election?

There is always hope; always. The President has almost unlimited powers in national emergency situations, but national emergency situations are such that they are unpredictable, even when someone tries to instigate them.
It is the nature of the vicious dog to bite someone, if and when he gets the opportunity to do so. When you let loose a vicious dog, you cannot tell who he will bite first. Or next. Or last.
Don’t’ try to predict the future with any precision. Just know that there is quite likely to be some sort of October surprise to upset the political apple cart. When it happens, remember who Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, is, and what his intentions are, and never forget that, all the way into and out of the voting booth.
Some theoretically perfect storm of conditions would have to appear to allow him to suspend the election without somehow being stopped from suspending it.
Don’t’ worry about theoretical possibilities; just remember which candidate opposes our Declaration and our Constitution and be absolutely determined to vote.

How do you see Europe “descending into civil war”?
Date: Mon Sep 17 06:40:11 2012
From: Vic Biorseth
That was not a prediction, but a stated possibility. Populations are in ever increasing difficulty in many European nations, to the point where well-dressed people are out in the streets foraging for food in Greece. It is abundantly clear that this is the fault of their government(s). Any increasingly desperate population with preexisting hostility toward government needs little if any encouragement from Alinskyites or other Marxists to be pushed to attempt violent reform or replacement of government, especially if Marxist tools of civil organization, such as labor unions, are already strongly established. These are very dangerous times.
Date: Mon Sep 17 09:40:41 2012
So labor unions are now “Marxist tools of civil organization”? I have been a union member all my working life and I am not a Marxist, nor is my union, the UAW, Marxist. That is quite a slander against the American workers who built this country. This ignorance shows that nothing else you say is worth much.

From: Vic Biorseth
I submit that all union members fall roughly into three catagories;
I challenge you to name one single local labor union anywhere, in any country on earth, that is NOT strongly affiliated with and subordinate to a larger National and/or an International union or organization of labor unions.
Now why, pray tell, would any union solely interested in the interest of the workers, work conditions, pay and so forth at a particular place of employment have any interest whatsoever in being involved in any state, national or international strike?
Do the words “The workers have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!” strike a familiar note? (Hint: they are the closing lines of Marx’s Communist Manifesto.)
It’s long past time to wake up and smell the coffee, XXX.

Some things in this I do not understand. How has it been shown that the attacks were planned and not spontaneous? Everyone says it was the movie. Also, how are you so sure of yourself in saying Democrats are really Marxist, rather than just your political opposition? Aren’t you doing the same thing they do in labeling the opposition extreme?

The attack that killed the “diplomat” in Benghazi, Libya is the key to the suspicions of everyone with military experience. There was no demonstration going on. The “diplomat” arrived, and the attack commenced. The attack was very well coordinated and executed by well trained and experienced soldiers with good unit cohesion. That does not happen without a plan and elaborate prep.
They were ready and waiting for him.
So the question arises, why did he go to a mere rented house in Benghazi instead of to an embassy? Who sent him there? Where was his security entourage, and why was the destination not secured ahead of his arrival? Who informed the bad guys about his escape path to another safe house? This looks like a setup, and a purposeful ambush. He was probably a spook under cover as a diplomat, on an entirely undisclosed mission, and he was betrayed.
Again, I smell Alinsky. No one other than American officials could have ordered him to be there at that time on that day, September 11, 2012, to complete the plan. The movie was merely a cover, and not a very good one. That is my guess; it will likely never be proved, but I’m as free to guess as the next guy. I don’t think Comrade Obama is being fooled by the Moslems. I think he’s in bed with them. Marxism and Islam are linking up.
Regarding your second question; the Democrat Party has been easing into Marxist ideology ever since Theodore Roosevelt, at least. Or, the ideology has been easing into Democrat thinking. It started with bypassing the constitutionally limited and enumerated powers of government to “do good” for the needy; the so-called bleeding heart Liberal sentiment. It is ending with the flat-out Marxist Comrade Obama, peace be upon him, ignoring or violating the Constitution with almost every Presidential action.
It’s the Liberal do-good sentiment that may be the most insidious, Jennifer. It tends to try to convince people to be less independent and more dependent on the highest level of government. It seems so innocent, but it is anything but innocent.
For example: Why should the student be industrious in his studies, if he knows the teacher will grade on a generous curve, and he can benefit from the greater industry of the more industrious of the students? It’s a training, in benefiting from someone else’s effort.
When the student graduates and gets a job, why should he have to be anxious to keep it, and do a good job earning his pay, if some other factor – a union; the government – will assure him that he will not lose it, and guarantees other things, such as pay, regular increases, benefits, etc., that he personally does not need to earn?
A growing social sense of entitlement is a cancer on true liberty.
Entitlements are what the Democrat Party is all about.

If you saw the second Presidential debate last night, then you saw the clearly partisan moderator Candy Crowley jump in, in Comrade Obama’s defense to interrupt Romney’s challenge of the long, long administration-promoted “It was the Movie! It was the Movie!” cover-up, by saying “I have the transcript! I have the transcript!” to show that at some point on day one Comrade Obama used the word “terror.”
Two points on that.
If the President knew on day one that the attack on the American Ambassador was a pre-planned military attack, then he and his entire administration were and are deeply involved in an elaborate cover-up for some reason. There is something about it that cannot stand the light of day.
If the President did not know on day one that it was a pre-planned and well coordinated military attack, then he is completely incompetent in his office.

Two points, if I may - Saul Alinsky was no professor, and, as I see it, the "rest of the world" is not necessarily in a "more precarious state than America". The fact that America is in decline does not mean that the rest of the world is too.

My reference to "Professor" Saul Alinsky was a sarcasm; perhaps I should have used the title Perfesser to make it more obvious. As far as the economic and political stability and changing status of the rest of the world, well, we shall see ...
