The Chosen One (Who is Obama Really?) - Must Read
Claremont Review of Books ^ | July 1, 2011 | Angello M. Codevilla

Posted on 07/13/2011 12:27:41 PM PDT by mojito

...But there was never anything silly, nor light-hearted, nor casual, about Barack Obama's efforts to keep the public's eyes from the basic facts of his life, from birth to his candidacy for president. On the contrary, this opacity is a deliberate policy. Why? The presumptive answer, absent testimony from those involved, is to ensure that real facts interfere as little as possible with the image and narrative that he and his associates have carefully crafted for him. Distinguishing between reality and that narrative would require above all a skeptical attitude, sure to be characterized by Democrats and the media in the most derogatory terms.

According to hagiography, Barack Obama was born to a hippy girl from an insignificant family and raised in poor circumstances, out of which he rose through brilliance. Yet his haughty demeanor, his stilted language when off the teleprompter, his cultural likes and dislikes, bespeak an upbringing in an environment at once so upscale and so leftist that it makes him almost a foreigner to ordinary Americans....

Consistent with the Barack Obama we know, however, are his real family, his real upbringing, and his real choices of profession and associates. His mother's parents, who raised him, seem to have been cogs in the U.S. government's well-heeled, well-connected machine for influencing the world, whether openly ("gray influence") or covertly ("black operations"). His mother spent her life and marriages, and birthed her children, working in that machine. For paradigms of young Barack's demeanor, proclivities, opinions, language, and attitudes one need look no further than the persons who ran the institutions that his mother and grandparents served—e.g., the Ford Foundation, the United States Information Agency, and the Central Intelligence Agency—....It is here, with these people and institutions, that one should begin to unravel the unknowns surrounding him.

Great atricle and very informative.

Communism's undeniable horrors forced the New Left to disassociate itself from "What Is to Be Done?" and once again to pretend that its socialism was neither oligarchic nor coercive, that somehow it was on the side of ordinary folks.

This huge lie and deception has forever changed Europe, Canada, and South America and is now attempting to change the USA. What the sheople can't see is that the left's socialism will ALWAYS lead to Oligarchic Oppression of man's inalienable rights.

WARNING!

Whenever a left-wing SOB, e.g., Clinton, Kerry, and now the Preposterous One, gets into a tight corner, it has become somewhat of an MSM mini-tradition to trot out the possibility that there is a "CIA connection;" just to see if anybody buys it.

The Clinton Gang trotted out this gambit in order to explain Clinton's mysterious year behind the Iron Curtain after he was thrown out of Oxford after a date-rape scandal. The leftie PR guys tried it again to explain Kerry's shenanigans. It is just possible that Codevilla is "buying" it here in this article in regard to the Magic Marxist MF.

Anything to rationally explain how this Marxist MF got to be a Marxist MF? Hell, might even be a little bit true. I personally doubt it.

It IS ABSOLUTELY inconceivable that somebody so shy of native intelligence, common judgement, and people skills could possibly be operating independently.

The Naked Communism is a must read. It can be found on Amazon.com at the following link. The reviews of the book are also interesting with references to other must read books. If anyone hasn't yet read these books get them, read them and pass them on. They truly are eye openers!

Also, listening to this is a must for those who have not yet heard it. An ex KGB officer talks about how the communist really works/worked when he was a KGB officer.
