Valerie Jarrett, the CEO of Obama Inc.

jarrett_ny_092210For eight years, the media envisioned Dick Cheney as the ‘evil genius’ behind the Bush White House, but few in the media have wanted to take a long look at the ‘evil genius’ behind the Obama White House.

The populist grass roots myth died shortly after Obama was elected and while plenty of books have been written about the internal workings of the Obama campaign and administration, unlike the books written about Bush, they rarely inform mainstream media news coverage. When these books and articles come from within the media, the authors are not attacked and their work isn’t discredited, it simply gets compartmentalized into the wonksphere and away from daily news coverage.

This compartmentalization is the reason why media coverage of Obama remains largely unchanged and very little attention is paid to the non-cabinet level personalities who actually make policy. Colin Powell’s dissatisfaction with his lack of influence under Bush was widely covered, while Hillary Clinton’s was not. The Powell implosion led the media to exaggerate the role of Dick Cheney, but no one asks who really had the final say on foreign policy under Obama if Hillary Clinton didn’t.

The Obama White House is a radical departure from previous administrations. It’s a permanent campaign, not just for the obvious reason that it is constantly using the tactics of the campaign, fundraising, attacking and performing, but also because it operates like a campaign reducing the traditional forms of an administration to formalities.

Cabinet members have little influence. Decisions are made by White House staffers, many from the Center for American Progress, who are the ones running the unaccountable permanent campaign.

There is no Obama administration. There is an Obama campaign. And that campaign is part of an organization built around a single figure; Obama Inc.

Obama Inc. has more in common with the type of organization built around a celebrity like Beyonce than a conventional political organization. It can handle everything from fundraising, branding to viral marketing, but like the inner circles of top celebrities, the most influential person in the organization is the one who can soothe, pamper and cater to the celebrity’s mercurial personality.

Valerie Jarrett’s role as CEO of Obama Inc. confuses those who expect a more conventional arrangement. Jarrett is less Dick Cheney and more Colonel Parker or Helen Kushnick; a powerful enigmatic figure ruthlessly dedicated to her star whose power comes from his dependency.

Obama is the star of Obama Inc., the grinning figure who goes out on stage and cracks jokes while selling overpriced health insurance to the country. Valerie Jarrett is his manager, confidante and gatekeeper. Officially Jarrett is a senior adviser with a defined title and function, but Obama Inc. does few things officially and unofficially, Jarrett has the last word on everything.

Jarrett merges the personal and the political. Obama may chat with numerous advisers, but it’s Valerie who goes back to eat with Michelle and the family. A cabinet member is lucky to catch Obama’s attention once. Valerie Jarrett has it full time, day or night, leading to her nickname of “Night Stalker.”

If Obama skips security briefings, it’s because they, like so much of the formal infrastructure of government, are there just for show. The real briefing will come from or through Jarrett and it will be massaged into the talking points that communicate only what she wants them to.

The aggressive approach that Obama Inc. has come to be known for is all Valerie. Bill Clinton’s sharp edge was Hillary. It was Hillary who kept the grudges of Clintonworld burning while Bill tried to work with his rivals and enemies. In Obama Inc, Valerie Jarrett occupies Hillary’s role, urging greater ideological fealty to the left and uncompromising attacks on the right, while dominating Obama in a way that Hillary never dominated Bill.

Valerie Jarrett got away with too much during her time in Chicago politics to have learned caution. Where more conventional Democrats would slow down, Valerie Jarrett speeds up; a successful career of corruption and leftist politics has given her a sense of political and moral invulnerability. But that doesn’t mean that Jarrett lacks skill; like her boss, what she lacks is a sense of responsibility.

Obama is a political dilettante whose skills are entirely people skills. Valerie Jarrett’s people skills are negligible and concentrated on only one person, but unlike her boss, protégé and adopted son, she has the endurance and drive to pursue an issue indefinitely.

Barack Obama isn’t driven. Throughout his entire adult life there have been people there to open doors for him. It seemed natural for him to let Valerie Jarrett drive his political career and his administration to do the things that he lacks the attention span or the focus to do.

In exchange, his administration represents Jarrett’s ideological vision of a hard left turn for the country.

Valerie Jarrett doesn’t always get her way. She managed to talk Obama out of going after Osama three times, but eventually lost the argument. But Jarrett has made her mark on the country and the world by winning more arguments than she loses by leveraging her unprecedented level of access to chip away at him with her personal knowledge of his weaknesses; what Michelle Obama described as his “soft spots”.

Valerie Jarrett’s strength is framing political arguments in personal terms. Through her that has also become Obama’s strength. For Obama, Jarrett and the rest of the left, the political is personal. And their bond is also political and personal.

Jarrett and Obama are both Third Culture activists with a background in the Muslim world and left-wing politics, who came up the ladder through their involvement with corrupt political non-profits and equally corrupt Chicago politics. Both have dipped their toes in the narrow interests of the urban black community while having political agendas that transcended theirs on a global scale. And both have deep wells of resentment.

Obama may be married to Michelle, but he is closer to Valerie. Jarrett protects him from his job by controlling access to him. As his gatekeeper, Jarrett controls everything from dinner invites to the czars who have more power than many cabinet members. And when each meeting ends, it’s Valerie Jarrett who privately provides the final summary and makes the concluding argument to Barack Obama.

By becoming the gatekeeper to the Oval Office, Valerie Jarrett has more control over domestic and foreign policy than anyone else making her the closest thing to the president. Obama may be the public face of Obama Inc., but when the cameras dim and the teleprompters are turned off, it’s Valerie Jarrett who calls the shots.

Obama may be reading a teleprompter on stage, but Valerie Jarrett is the woman behind the curtain.

            The supply of GM seeds and insecticides is a lucrative and constant business activity into the future under WTO rules. Russia is running behind here but is dashing to catch up with its own GM research. Food security is national security and a projection of international power. That’s why the E.U was told to “@#@##@@ off!”

            The United States wants to pull the strings. American companies including GM alumni in the Obama administration want to get the seeds in and it is an ongoing boon for pesticides…new grain types and ultimately food security connections.

    If you look carefully at Jarret you will find she always has a well lubricated elbow length rubber glove somewhere on her person.

  • Steeloak

    I think Jarrett is less a controlling CEO and more a puppet master. I believe she is his controller, answering directly to her superiors in the Chicago Communist community. They created the Manchurian Candidate that is Obama, and she is his handler. Like in the film “Without a Clue” she is Watson, to Obama’s Sherlock.

      If you could find anything such as international law written on paper it would be hard to read because America under Obama has already wiped its backside with it along with their “different set of lawyers” that this incompetent talks about. I would never use the Constitution in the analogy above…I have too much respect for it even as an aussie. But hasn’t he done all he can to undermine the spirit and intent of your great Constitution.

  • truebearing

    So who is Jarret answering to? She has ties to Islam through Iran. That would explain Obama’s unconscionable enabling of the Iranian quest for nuclear weapons. It would also make her guilty of treason.

    Jarret and Obama came out of Chicago, the nexus of Islam and Marxism in America. Both are, at minimum, very sympathetic to Islam, but even more likely, Muslim themselves. It would be nice to know if Jarrett is a secret Twelver.

    I watched Jarrett on O’Reilly recently. She was quite deft at manipulating O’Reilly’s huge ego. It is a skill she was tasked with using to control Obama’s even bigger, but more infantile ego. The evil puppet has an evil puppeteer, but what evil pulls her strings? Iranian ayatollahs?

    • http://www.clarespark.com/ Clare Spark

      Jarrett’s parents were black, though she was born in Iran. It is more likely that her sympathy for Muslims comes through the Left, that views the Arab states and Iran as victims of the Cold War, and hence fodder for anti-imperialists. See if she is not more akin to the late communist historian Eric Hobsbawm on the Mid-East than she is to a jihadist. http://clarespark.com/2012/12/08/hobsbawm-obama-israel/,”Hobsbawm, Obama, Israel.”

      • truebearing

        No doubt Jarrett is inextricably connected to the far left. Her parents were Communists, and all of her associates seem to be, except for those who are Muslim. What doesn’t make complete sense is her facilitation of Islam, a competing ideology to the Left for transnational domination.
        The fact that both Jarrett and Obama were red diaper babies born in Muslim countries is significant, especially given the clear evidence of their hatred of Israel and relentless enabling of Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, and even Al Queda.

        http://newsflavor.com/politics/us-politics/the-ulsterman-report-valerie-jarrett-and-the-muslim-brotherhood/

        Are we witnessing the beginnings of a syncretic religion that combines communism and Islam, or is this a parallel or fusion revolution? Obama’s first political campaign in Chicago was a dual candidacy, as both a Democrat and a New Partian — the New Party being a disguised communist party created by Joel Rogers. He is credited with devising the strategy of using “fusion politics,” or dual candidacy, to take over the Democratic Party. He is also credited with being the single most important strategist in Obama’s ascendancy to the Whitehouse. Maybe his “fusion politics” now includes Islam.

        • Flitandersen_99

          Re: competing Ideologies, recall, if you will, the alliance between the communists & the anarchists back in the early 1900’s in America. You don’t get more far apart than them. BUT…they had one thought in common – the current system had to go and they had to ally themselves to accomplish that. They could always go to war with each other once the current system was destroyed.

          • truebearing

            Communists and anarchists are both nihilists. Since Marxist revolutions never really get past the nihilistic stage, one could say they are compatible.

            I agree that the communists will gladly use anyone to facilitate their power lust, but why would they want more Muslims in America when they are already in control of the government, media, entertainment industry, most of the money, the healthcare system, etc? The communists of old killed off fellow revolutionaries once in power. Why invite Muslim revolutionaries when they aren’t needed?

          • DB1954

            It’s a good question, but if you see WASPy America as the font of all evil in the world, one darn good way of getting rid of the font of evil is to fill it up with Muslims–people who hate us for enumerable reasons or no rational reason at all. What better way of destroying “the evil white man’s empire”?

          • truebearing

            Yes, racism is at the core of the Jarrett/Obama team.

          • DB1954

            Exactly my point all along. When Obama says he loves America, he means he loves all the “peoples of color.” He hates whites just like his father taught him to hate whites–the great “oppressors” of Africans and all other “peoples of color.” This is true whether his real father was Barack H. Obama Sr. or Frank Marshall Davis.

          • Flitandersen_99

            Eh, racism is merely a means to an end… POWER. At the end of the day that’s really what this is all about, isn’t it? If the forces of Darkness win out there are going to be an awful lot of minorities surprised to find themselves still pressing their noses up against the window.

            Early this year China rejected US GM crops of corn and instead took supplies of grain from the Ukraine.

            Don’t believe the U.S or E.U that it is about freedom and human rights. Its about multinationals invading countries as it was with Libya and now North and Central Africa and now the Ukraine.

          • Flitandersen_99

            Well I disagree with you there. Our constitution is ALL about human rights. It’s the reason it only puts limits on what the Government can do – not people. It’s the ONLY government charter that has ever taken that approach. And THAT’S why we need to start electing politicians who will obey their oath of office (for a change) and DEFEND & PROMOTE our constitution. It’s true we have powerful multinational corps. here and they’re welcomed to do business but the problem is when they start buying Congresspeople. I thought we got the message on K-street, but apparently everyone didn’t. And it’s not Republican or Democrat, it’s a culture of arrogance that can only be driven out by a “third party”. To me, McConnell, Boehner, Reid & Pelosi are all legs on the same pig. We need to FOCUS! Take back out Congress and then the White House!

        • CapeLady

          The Muslim Brotherhood allied itself with Hitler during WWII and their totalitarian system of Sharia is very compatible with Facism – they are Islamo-Fascists and I think Obama is one of them. His half-brother Malik, who he denies being close to but was the best man at his wedding is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood with close connections to several notorious terrorist groups in Africa. I do not understand Hillary’s acceptance of Islam apart from the fact that she may hope to co-opt it to destroy our republic believing she can control the outcome – but with Obama’s roots in Muslim schools in Indonesia and the family in Kenya he is closest to being not only Muslims but activists with ties to Wahhabi madrasas in Saudi Arabia… and a brother who is connected with terrorists …. I don’t think there is any doubt where Obama’s loyalties lie, and it is not with the United States of America!

        We know about her communist background, but why is she so pro-Islam? Obama’s refusal to help the Iranian democracy movement, followed up by his incomprehensible decision to end sanctions against Iran aren’t decisions that necessarily help the communists. Ultimately, Communism is at odds with Islam.

        • DB1954

          Yes, of course it is, but if you consider about Val Jarrett and her communist background long enough, you realize that her background and her apparent embrace of all things Islamic reflect the mind of a lunatic, not unlike the malignant narcissist-in-chief.

          It’s not so easy to understand the mind of a lunatic, especially that of the narcissist with delusions of grandeur.

          • truebearing

            I’m not sure Jarrett is a lunatic. Evil, yes, but not a lunatic.

            There is something going on with Jarrett and Obama that isn’t motivated simply by marxist ideology. It is something more basic, more primal. Race is a big factor in everything Obama does, and I believe the same is true for Jarrett. They share loyalties to Islam, Marxism, and Black Nationalism, but of those three loyalties, I strongly suspect that Black Nationalism and Islam are Obama’s strongest loyalties. I think the same is true for Jarrett.
            Obama and Jarrett have openly admitted that they think exactly alike. Jarret’s is the one who secretly meets with anti-American Muslim groups like the Muslim Brotherhood. She reportedly blocked going after Bin Laden three times, and may have given the stand down order in Benghazi. Her fingerprints are on every decision coming out of the Whitehouse. Every decision coming out of the Whitehouse that effects Muslims is favorable to Muslims. It is more than fair to suspect her strongest loyalties are to Islam and Black Nationalism, over Marxism.

            Jarrett factoids:

            Jarrett was born in Iran.

            She was named “Iranian of the Day” in August of 2008 by Iranian.com.

            Jarrett often meets privately with Muslim activists.

          • DB1954

            Let’s agree then that she’s evil. For my part, I mean that in the literal sense, or rather, as literal a sense as it can be. In this regard, she’s very much like Hussein himself, is she not?

    Again, Daniel nails it.
    Chicago is many things.

    The dramatic frigid weather patterns from the north which blister the shores of Lake Michigan come winter are known mostly to natives.

    America sees Chicago as the windy city, the home of the losing Cubbies, a vibrant musical and movie, Chicago the grand band, or Al Capone.

    Few know in 1968 the band Chicago was the Chicago Transit Authority, a big thing before they were officially renamed and became famous.

    And even fewer seem to know the low dark underbelly of the Chicago political serpent which has been labeled a machine but is in fact a deadly mother snake which has hatched Illinois’ most lethal serpents which slithered downhill in the dark to DC and bred a larger den of hissing vipers.

    In the nest of the mother snake were wriggling asps called Marxist Sol Alinsky, Obama mentor Communist Frank Marshall Davis, Con Edison Nuclear boss William Ayers and his intransigent America-hater son Bill Ayers who helped
    design our ugly Communist-doctrined Common Core, Black Liberation Theology
    lover and Jew hater Reverend Wright, as well as Vernon Jarrett the African-American Communist father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, who while working in the corrupt Daley mayoral office hired Michelle Robinson who touted her girly-jeans drag-along fiancé Barack.

    During the 2008 presidential election the non-existent phantom terrorist bomber Bill Ayers who Barack Obama never knew, somehow turned out to be the same guy Obama actually worked with intimately at Chicago’s Annenberg Foundation, the Woods Fund, the Joyce Foundation, and the Ayers more personal fund – the Leadership Council, wherein their collaboration collected hundreds of millions of dollars which was funneled into a failed infant prototype of today’s deceitful Common Core.

    Doncha’ love transparency?

    When Valerie Jarrett left Mayor Daley’s office for bigger and better things she drug along with her Michelle and her soon to be husband and future appease…..oops, I mean Senator, Barack Obama.

    Valerie allowed him to come along as long as he shut up and followed orders.

This coup mentality is catching on.My bets are on the occupy movement not being so civilised next time.98  EditReply

    If Obama ever declares martial law, he will be told to do so by a woman terrified of losing her power. She is at the height of power, at this moment. She will never get it, again. No presidency is in the works for her. By December of 2016, she will be consumed with fear of the future.

  • Jeanne

    The question, then, is “Why?” Why does a President need a “gatekeeper” like Valerie Jarrett? Why does a President need a gatekeeper that will approve all the decisions? Why can’t 0bama make decisions? Why is a President closer to his gatekeeper than he is to his wife? (Say, do Michelle and Valerie get along?) Valerie Jarrett seems to have more power than 0bama.

    Why is this allowed? What is Valerie protecting? What is she hiding? Valerie Jarrett undoubtedly knows the answers to questions such as, “What was 0bama actually doing, and where was he, the night of the Benghazi attacks?” What was 0bama really doing the night we went after Osama bin Laden? What does 0bama do in his leisure time, when he isn’t golfing or vacationing, that is? If you check the Presidential Schedule on any given day, it’s usually not a very heavy one. When 0bama does get the Presidential Daily Brief, it is usually not before 9:45am or 10:00am. Why? Previous Presidents, like George Bush, made sure they got that briefing by 7:00-7:30am, latest. Does 0bama sleep late? If so, why? Is Barack 0bama engaging in activities that must be hidden from the public?

    Why does 0bama need to be so closely controlled? Valerie Jarrett is keeping many secrets.

        • Steeloak

          I saw her interview with Bill O’Reilly – Judging from the pure condescension and hatred radiating from her eyes, describing her as a Beria fits her to a “T”. I have never seen such a cold, calculating, ruthless woman – Hillary is a dilettante compared to VJ.

But I can also see her as having not a shred of objection to its activities in pursuit of the cause.

    Obama may be reading a teleprompter on stage, but Valerie Jarrett is the typist.

    • Callawyn

      After Obama first got elected, back when he still took the occasional question from the press in the briefing room, I watched him give a press conference with a teleprompter. He was fielding supposedly random questions but reading his responses off the teleprompter.

      My question then, still unanswered, was: if those questions really were random, then what was appearing on the teleprompter?? Was someone sitting in the next room wearing a headset, listening in, and furiously typing responses into the teleprompter for Obama to read off as if he was coming up with the answer himself??

      • Lorilu

        Didn’t a reporter just state that Carney gets the questions beforehand? Then the next day she recanted. I wonder who told her to.

  • Nabukuduriuzhur

    Jarret is not that unusual.

    That kind of lying to get something is epidemic in the U.S.

    When 90%+ percent of abuse claims by women are lies to get better divorce settlements, when 50% of rapes in the U.S. are false claims, when 40% of rapes in Canada are false claims, when women see nothing with using other people for money, the bedroom, and so on, I have to ask: what happened to women in our culture?

    When less than 100 of 5000+ initial claims on the army’s harassment hotline turned out to have any merit at all, I have to ask: what happened to women’s honesty?

    When I worked for the Feds (3 different departments) women harassed men and it was ignored. One guy I knew even had to change not just jobs, but DEPARTMENTS to get away from a boss who wouldn’t stop writing love letters. His legal officer just told him to ignore it.

    Some women even went so far as to file false claims when a man wouldn’t sleep with her. Getting back at him.

    The ideas of lying to hurt someone else and lying to take someone’s job or stuff, are not new, but for 30 years it’s been a massive problem in our courtrooms, media because women were told by feminists that it was ok to lie to get what they wanted.

    When such lying has the force and endorsement of the law, then there will be people who use it as a tactic.

    Permanent Revolution huh? How did that work out? Well in China it killed millions of people during the Great Leap Forward (Backwards actually) and it wrecked their university system so thoroughly that they had to send a whole generation of students overseas to re-prime the pump.

    “The original Marxist theory of a “permanent revolution” was largely the product of Leon Trotsky’s mind, …

    Years later, however, Mao Zedong revived the idea of a permanent revolution–or a continuous revolution–during the Great Leap Forward, begun in 1958.

    Jarrett’s grandfather and father-in-law were communists. I have some far lefty relatives myself and am uber conservative, so I’m sure she likewise rejected all family communist influence. Those family dinners must be a circus though. A lone patriot against communist subversives.

    • mo up in the northeast

      I agree. I might also point out that Obama has hired Monsanto alumni in his administration. He has also signed executive orders in which in the event of an “emergency” (read: Something Jarrett and him have cooked up through a false flag) he gets complete control of our food supply. This is why I’m begging Congress to read aloud on the floor, every word of his f…..ing “executive orders”. God, this man needs to be impeached!

        Do you think Boehner gives a toss. They are all part of this war over resources. I have written to all the GM activists and news agencies to do some reporting on this.

  • dwayneroberson

    The Jarret passes on killing Bin Laden are of interest. Has she issued executive orders? On the night of Benghazi Obama posted Do Not Disturb so he could rest up for his Vegas campaign trip. Did Jarret, Obama’s Rasputin issue the order not to assist the embassy? That could explain the video coverup lie.

      Dear Senator McCain:

      I’d have done more than laugh at Susan Rice’s answer. I’d
      have called her a damn liar, and told her that she and a bunch of others,
      belong in jail.

      That much-talked about Muslim movie: the one which I keep
      telling you, was engineered by John-the-Muslim-Brennan. CGI acquired his former
      Company, Stanley Inc, and comes through as the hyperlink on the name-change of
      “Innocence of Muslims”. How many times do I have to tell you that? Do you think that it was magic that took it
      from 17 views to thorough saturation throughout the world, esp. the middle
      east?

      Here are the 2 links to substantiate that: and you’d better
      bookmark them before President Jarrett takes over full control of the Internet,
      like she’s taken over the Pentagon budget.

      http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/53284 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7os9D-EsFmM
      .

      I’ve documented that Hillary blamed the g.d. video while
      Woods and Doherty were still alive. It was READIED by the Obama Adminisration.

      Why the need to create a dopey video? So the coverup of the
      plan to kidnap Chris Stevens and exchange him for the Blind Sheik, stayed
      covered up. Gun running to Turkey
      and then on to Syria?
      Doesn’t explain that the Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team would have been
      pre-positioned the day BEFORE Benghazi,
      and then told to stand down when Woods and Doherty bravely defied orders and
      showed up and sacrificed their very lives. If Chris Stevens objected to the gun
      running, he could have been merely fired. Didn’t Obama situate Stevens to be at
      that annex on that day? How did the thugs know where both Stevens and the jerry
      cans of gasoline were? Why was there no American doctor to autopsy Stevens? Why
      was Anderson Cooper allowed in to contaminate a crime scene? Why did the FBI
      take weeks to show up? Why did the CIA pressure everyone to shut up? Why fire
      Carter Ham when he wanted to aid Stevens? Why the lies? BECAUSE CHRIS STEVENS GOT SET UP BY HIS OWN
      GOV’T and MORSI.

      Until you acknowledge the role Morsi thugs played in the
      attack at Benghazi, the families of the four victims will receive
      no justice whatsoever. Obama will continue to wreck the country, too.. Make no
      mistake. He’s doubling down. Severely. Here’s the Walid Shoebat quote about overhearing the Benghazi attackers speak of Morsi:

      “Two days after the attacks in Benghazi,
      we posted video taken during the firefight in Benghazi in which gunmen
      can be heard shouting, ‘Don’t Shoot us! We were sent by Mursi’! Although that
      version of the video has been taken down, we have found it elsewhere and re-posted earlier this month. To underscore the
      significance, this is evidence in real-time, that Egyptian President Mohammed
      Mursi was involved in the attack” Link: http://shoebat.com/2013/07/03/ironclad-egypt-behind-benghazi-attacks/

    Jarrett = Obama’s Rasputin

    The fact that that hasn’t been a national scandal for the entire duration of Obama’s administration is a stunning indictment of what passes for ‘journalism’ in this country.

    Bush got ridiculed for stating, accurately though with bad grammar, ‘I’m the decider’. In the Obama administration, its Jarrett that makes the decisions. Obama’s just the guy that reads the teleprompter. When he’s not needed for that, he’s out golfing or in his creepy little TV room in his robe and sandals.

    This woman is evil incarnate a la Saul Alinsky. We decent Americans need to find a way to neutralize her for good. And, David Horowitz, much as you probably don’t want to hear it, Diana West described quite a comparison between Communism and Islamofascism.

    The coup in the Ukraine is about democratic rights…Pffft!!

    Interesting article below. In truth….  “Who Supplies Wins!”

    The supply of GM seeds and insecticides is a lucrative and constant business activity into the future under WTO rules. Russia is running behind here but is dashing to catch up with its own GM research. Food security is national security and a projection of international power. That’s why the E.U was told to “@#@##@@ off!”

    The United States wants to pull the strings. American companies including GM alumni in the Obama administration want to get the seeds in and it is an ongoing boon for pesticides…new grain types and ultimately food security connections.

    I think there are some fine insights on Obama in this article. At times I’ve had the feeling that, despite his vanity and his ambitions, he’s the closest thing to Chauncey Gardiner we’ve ever had in the White House.

  • simonzee1

    Consider this….Egypt is taking the unprecedented step of saying they will execute hundreds of protestors? Truly shocking! Why? Could it be that right now….countries are seeing the effects of the West legitamising coups in other countries like the Ukraine… where they are trying to advance their interests and are deeply worried. No different a response atfer Libya with a spike in defence spending or a spike in the purchasing of ammo and guns when Obama talked of further gun controls. These are both primal and high order intellectual responses. In fact the primal kicks off the higher order thinking. Might they not be afraid of the precedent this sets for stable governance between elections?

    Look at the storming of the Libyan congress…Taiwan…Spain…South America. Egypt is sending a clear message that storming public places and places of government will no longer be tolerated. Other governments…no doubt…will follow suit.

    It could also radicalise future Occupy Movements in the West… should they arise through testing their own limits of protest.

    Once again you can apportion the dramatic nature of these punishments in Egypt in part…if not in large part…to what has happened in the Arab Spring and in Ukraine.

    Understand this….people do not need to make cognitive connections between events and articulate them…they can more generally process these sub consciously and then form their ideas and behavior response particularly from a primal instinct.

    Western intellectuals fail to understand the effect of the power of  subconscious filtering from the most uneducated to educated mind.

    Their is an equality of interpretation here that is remarkably the same…instinctive…primal… that is survival based and highly developed. What I am saying is….don’t treat people like idiots whoever they are and however educated they might be.

    This is how I predicted and explained the reasons for the streets of London burning after the false… poor “peaceful protestor” labels were given to protestors in the Arab Spring where they were engaged in burning buildings and carrying guns.

    They were painted as peaceful by news outlets and most notably by the BBC with the BBC later consucting a whitewash review of the reporting of the Arab Spring. The youth in London just acted out what was legitamised overseas.

    Under this definition many of those protesting in London…as the streets of London burnt… could be described as peaceful protestors. Do you see how propaganda trips upon itself?

    As I said governments need more theologians as advisers. I would not be fit to tie C.S Lewis bootlaces….but that is the kind of intellect you are all missing….

    Today we are all missing the broad minds of the likes of Newton and Darwin who had broad minds…whose first degrees were in theology and who knew how to bring in ideas from all sources and develop credible theories. 

    Christian theology has been pushed to the periphery and now it needs a place at the table to provide advice in domestic and international platforms  as do other religious scholars.
