Full Text Of Newsmax Column Suggesting Military Coup Against Obama

  1. OLYHOOCH profile image60
    OLYHOOCHposted 5 years ago

    Here is the full text of John L. Perry's column on Newsmax which suggests that a military coup to "resolve the Obama problem" is becoming more possible and is not "unrealistic." Perry also writes that a coup, while not "ideal," may be preferable to "Obama's radical ideal" -- and would "restore and defend the Constitution." Newsmax has since removed the column from its website.

    Obama Risks a Domestic Military Intervention

    By: John L. Perry

    There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America's military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the "Obama problem." Don't dismiss it as unrealistic.

    America isn't the Third World. If a military coup does occur here it will be civilized. That it has never happened doesn't mean it wont. Describing what may be afoot is not to advocate it. So, view the following through military eyes:

    # Officers swear to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Unlike enlisted personnel, they do not swear to "obey the orders of the president of the United States."

    # Top military officers can see the Constitution they are sworn to defend being trampled as American institutions and enterprises are nationalized.

    # They can see that Americans are increasingly alarmed that this nation, under President Barack Obama, may not even be recognizable as America by the 2012 election, in which he will surely seek continuation in office.

    # They can see that the economy -- ravaged by deficits, taxes, unemployment, and impending inflation -- is financially reliant on foreign lender governments.

    # They can see this president waging undeclared war on the intelligence community, without whose rigorous and independent functions the armed services are rendered blind in an ever-more hostile world overseas and at home.

    # They can see the dismantling of defenses against missiles targeted at this nation by avowed enemies, even as America's troop strength is allowed to sag.

    # They can see the horror of major warfare erupting simultaneously in two, and possibly three, far-flung theaters before America can react in time.

    # They can see the nation's safety and their own military establishments and honor placed in jeopardy as never before.

    So, if you are one of those observant military professionals, what do you do?

    Wait until this president bungles into losing the war in Afghanistan, and Pakistan's arsenal of nuclear bombs falls into the hands of militant Islam?

    Wait until Israel is forced to launch air strikes on Iran's nuclear-bomb plants, and the Middle East explodes, destabilizing or subjugating the Free World?

    What happens if the generals Obama sent to win the Afghan war are told by this president (who now says, "I'm not interested in victory") that they will be denied troops they must have to win? Do they follow orders they cannot carry out, consistent with their oath of duty? Do they resign en masse?

    Or do they soldier on, hoping the 2010 congressional elections will reverse the situation? Do they dare gamble the national survival on such political whims?

    Anyone who imagines that those thoughts are not weighing heavily on the intellect and conscience of America's military leadership is lost in a fool's fog.

    Will the day come when patriotic general and flag officers sit down with the president, or with those who control him, and work out the national equivalent of a "family intervention," with some form of limited, shared responsibility?

    Imagine a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution through an interim administration that would do the serious business of governing and defending the nation. Skilled, military-trained, nation-builders would replace accountability-challenged, radical-left commissars. Having bonded with his twin teleprompters, the president would be detailed for ceremonial speech-making.

    Military intervention is what Obama's exponentially accelerating agenda for "fundamental change" toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama's radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.

    Unthinkable? Then think up an alternative, non-violent solution to the Obama problem. Just don't shrug and say, "We can always worry about that later."

    In the 2008 election, that was the wistful, self-indulgent, indifferent reliance on abnegation of personal responsibility that has sunk the nation into this morass.

      Indeed.

      I think Perry's urging to "think up an alternative, non-violent solution" instead of saying "we can always worry about that later" is a very bold but common-sense dare to the American people to right the wrongs done by the Obama Administration ASAP.   Guess they didn't listen in 2009, mostly because apparently Newsmax took away Perry's free speech, and I wonder if they'll listen now.

      Ever since American let Obama gain a foothold to power, all manner of bad things have become popular to talk about and push for,  but calling him out on his madness was taboo from the start.  So many Americans became gutless, worshipping the likes of Rod Blagojevich and Obama too, so much so that they don't even listen to what comes outta their mouths or what policies they put in place; they just follow along with their mouths open and their eyes blinded by the audacity.

            Yes it is far fetched. But you called OLY a nut-job. Not nice.

            I do not want that to happen because it would make the USA look bad also. Obama said in his own words that he wants to transform America! His books wreak with socialism, His Reverend for 20 years who baptized his daughters dedicated a book to and said was his mentor is anti-American, the people he associates with are socialist and Marxist, his Cabinet and czars are mostly socialist. This is no coincidence! George Sorros is a big part of the equation. He funds NPR, Move-on, Apollo, Tides foundation and many many more all for the destruction of America! He is trying to do this by what looks like Kindness! The man is Evil, listen to is own words when being interviewed. He has a lot of money and buys everything. he has an ulterior motive and if you actually investigated this you would see it so clearly.

                Have you put all your detective skills into Georgy? Have you read Obama's Books? Have you investigated his associates, cabinet and his 20 year church? All the foundations Good ole Georgy started to put his plan in place? Have you heard him on interviews and his own words? Him collapsing currencies? I do not think so. You seem like a guy that wants the truth, How come you just believe Huffington Post, NPR, Move-on etc... but the ones that disagree with you are nut jobs and crapola? You know If you actually listen to both sides and do your own due diligence you will see the truth! Both sides give half truths most of the time. If you applied commonsense to a lot of it you can see when the are lying. sometimes it takes a lot of research. I always try to get their own words to find truth.

            George Soros is evil, just ask the Brits and Russians.  George Soros set out to destroy the Pound and the Ruble for no other reason than to make money.  Sounds like he was engaged in the liberal's definition of evil - doing something to make money.

                Is this not true? is this fair? can not wait to hear your response.

                Few Americans realize that it was George Soros who bankrolled the seven-year lobbying effort that gave us McCain-Feingold.

                "Combine… the $1.7 million that Mr. Soros gave the Center for Public Integrity, the $1.3 million he gave Public Campaign, the $300,000 to Democracy 21, the $625,000 to Common Cause, and the $275,000 to Public Citizen – and you can be forgiven for believing Mr. Soros got campaign finance passed all by himself," notes a Wall Street Journal editorial.

                McCain-Feingold neatly accomplishes Soros’ goal of regulating political discourse on the airwaves. It bars "special interest groups" from placing ads for or against any candidate for federal office on TV or radio 60 days before a general election, and 30 days before a primary. These "special interest groups" can be anything from corporations to grassroots networks of concerned citizens.

            Copyright is established by publishing something. It needs no statements to back it up, it doesn't even need a @ sign to make it so.

            Fortunately the man meant no harm, he may just have not been aware of things, I don't think people have to be so inconsiderate, I think they can simply show him the what you are trying to point out, and help him not make the mistake again. Fortunately someone already posted my article on about unconditional love on their blog, and never asked me. As long as they did sate who wrote it, my message was getting out there about that message of love others unconditionally.  I understand what I've been taught about plagarism. Excuse me if I was not aware of what you were talking about. Personally I find your tactics a little rude and unforgiving. There are more constructive ways to handlig the statement above but I guess you need to make others look bad to make yourself look good! I don't need to do that!

                  thats an assumption.

                  The OP makes a habit of reposting content he does not own.

                  As a site for writers, thats something we shouldnt ignore.

                  I couldn't care less about the topic, whether it was on mating habits of kangaroos, whether obama is the antichrist, or how to make jello from holy water, if the OP didnt write it, he should post no more than a small excerpt and then link to the original source.

                  and if he chooses to share on the forum, I would assume he may have some original conversation to share that relates to why he decided to post the content in the first place.

                  Writers on this site often have to send DMCA notices because of ignorant activities such as those done by the OP in the this post and past posts.

                  I also dont believe that OLY is a legitimate person or member of this community - is it somehow less SPAM because its political in nature?

                  its just a bunch of crap from worthless sources that muddies up the forum. If he responded and conversed after his mass postings then perhaps he could be seen as just a nuisance who posts to much. But he doesnt, so I'll agree that "OlY" is some sort of paid poster.

      Not plagiarize, but even then he could still be in copyright violation if Newsmax or the other website referenced owns the copyright. If Perry wrote the article for hire, then he may not own the copyright anymore.

          It's just upsetting to me that a valid subject has come under fire so much that any discussion about it has been lost.

      That would actually depend on how his contract is set up with Newsmax and who owns the original content. John Fogerty was sued for plagiarizing his own songs, and he had to prove in court that the songs he was performing as a solo artist were distinct from the songs he wrote as a member of Creedence Clearwater Revival, which were owned by the record company.

    Are the rules the same for forum posts as for hubs? And what's the difference between posting a link to a text, and posting the actual text in a forum, properly identifying the author and source? Are links okay and a bit of text not okay? As a practical matter I'm not aware that authors are raising objections so long as they are credited with their authorship. A lot of good information is conveyed in forum discussions via links, charts, graphs, videos, etc, none of which are originals by the person posting them. There is little truly original in publishing--seems to me there's a whole lot of paraphrasing and borrowing going on. Lewis Lapham has been publishing paperback books (Lapham's Quarterly) which consist virtually entirely of quotations on various themes which he has collected in a lifetime of reading and writing. Copyrights have expired long (centuries) ago on most of them.

      Best to avoid it in forum posts, Ralph - apart from the principle (I have spent a lot of my own time trying to get forum posts containing my duplicated work removed), there is the legality.

      Some news sources, such as Associated Press, have a team of heavy duty lawyers for exactly this sort of thing, and they will slap you with a bill for a few dollars per word.

      A short excerpt and a link is probably safest smile

    2. John Holden profile image61
      John Holdenposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Ralph, copyright rules are irrespective of the venue.

      The difference between posting text and posting a link is that the link takes you back to the original and thus gives the publisher all the benefits.

      A bit of text is OK though open to much argument about what a bit consists of, the general rule seems to be not more than 10%.

      As for authors not being concerned about losing potential
      income, I think you'll find that most are very concerned.

      With regard to your last statement "Copyrights have expired" is extremely relevant.

    Well, might as well get back to actually addressing the subject.

    Obama has been instrumental in toppling the kingdom of Libya, and his talents as a community organizer (or I should say the propensity for liberals to follow him) has washed over into other Nations on an almost-global basis, threatening the very foundations of their societies (good or bad, doesn't matter in this context); he has the audacity to publicly call for the removal of leaders of other Nations, etc........Yet he himself, so far, seems above being called out for transparency even though he has stated openly his desire to fundamentally transform America (into something, I will add, that's unrecognizable even via our Constitution).

    So, per the original suggestion by Mr. Perry in his article, I think the possibility of a coup is not only a patriotic thought but an urgent idea that should be considered, given the fact the voices of a huge portion of American citizens are being stifled by various means in our own Nation.  Obama, while judging other leaders, is quickly setting in place his own "kingdom" right here under our noses and above our ability to intervene.   Unless of course, the average citizen can walk into the White House and set him straight on his horrid policies and actions.  It should be like that.  We are, after all, supposed to be the ones who govern this Nation in the finality of it (based on the Law, which he is circumventing rapidly in many areas).  But I doubt they'd get very far, seeing as how he's surrounded himself with so many people who'll kiss his elbow at the drop of a hat.  He is becoming a tyrant, and no one dares to confront him openly, else they're shunned or their rights deleted, like the article of Mr. Perry's....

    What?  Is America so afraid to call out one man on his wrong-doing?  What's the other option?---to let him again persuade by hook or by crook the voters of this Nation and give him 4 MORE years of bullying Americans into thinking and acting like he does or else cowering down under his manipulative thumb?   God forbid.

    And what?  Obama can speak the unspeakable from his public position, and teach the unthinkable to an innocent generation of youngsters, but the word "coup" makes people shrink in horror?!   Amazing.

        Yes, it's not a comfortable choice either way.  It's downright scary!  But which way is better in the long run?---for our kids to become mindless followers of a man, or for patriots to stand up and say it like it is?  For fear to set in, or to face the issues now?   To forget those who HAVE called him out, but who got ostracized for it, or to BE one of those who call him out?

          2. The organizer of the Boston Tea-Party rally sent an e-mail:

          3. The recent e-mail from the Tea-Party broad in Orange County, with a picture of Obama and his parents as monkeys: racist!

If they did not force the banks to give out these mortgages Wall street would not have had to create these bad bonds(CMO'S) etc... like I said they need to have as many people down and the unions and the media so they can pull it off!

    First of all, White Teeth, and dutchman1951, I didn't say anything about killing anyone.   There's that fear aspect again, the notion that's been instilled in people that they have to just live with it because of the position of power someone's in.   A coup wouldn't have to kill anyone.  ARREST the man.  Yes, IMPEACH then.  I dunno about you or anyone else, but no man or woman is above the law, whether that be the laws of God or the laws of nature or the laws of even common decency.   Yet we have been force-fed the idea that the Presidency is a kingdom of some sort and we must bow down to whatever notion comes out of that position.

    And the funny thing is-----it doesn't even have to come to any of that!   I've been watching what's gone on.   And everyone is so afraid to even verbally oppose Obama's ideas directly, to him, that it's almost laughable if it weren't so horribly obvious!    Have you seen ANYONE with the guts to simply set him down and tell him right from wrong?  There have to be LOTS of people with that power, with that opportunity.  Where are they and why haven't they done so?

    At the very LEAST, send an actual common-sense Constitutional scholar to give him some lessons on the basics.   Heck, any average citizen could do that.  Or some behavioral counseling. Or even read him the rules of conduct of a paid representative of the people.  But apparently everyone's content just watching him in action, like a train wreck, aghast but speechless, rendering them totally inept.

      A Coup inplies Military Rule Brenda, aresting the President in a Coup means a Take over of the Exhisting Goverment. It would mean violence- period. It would also mean mutiny in the Military to get it done.  It would post up two Groups or leaders immediately against each other, and guns would come out.

      We are both saying impeach, lets use the Court and the system available and do that then, no Coup.

        What does he have to do before he's considered to have overstepped the boundaries?   If Congress hasn't got the guts to impeach him for warring with Libya without their sanction, what DOES he have to do get called out onto the carpet?   Tell me.

              Ha Ha well on secondlife we have this rule to talk on voice, because there are these people out there that like to pretend they're the opposite sex too, they tell you anything, or nothing. Make alts, have a million face book accounts, other social network accounts, yahoo accounts, with both men and women pics. Its a messed up world out there. So usually I don't believe anything a profile says anywhere less I talk to them on voice and know who they are. lol But again I don't talk to anyone on voice less I know them or someone I know knows them. Learned all those tricks the last three years, people stalking you, and harassing you if they don't like you. Write some more white teeth don't hide, cause when you hide we think something up with you. lol

    remember what happened during katrina? how the military went door to door - breaking in and seizing peoples' weapons? the last thing we need is a full fledged military operation and control of the country. we do not want to become a military state and there are more democratic ways to resolve our political, economic and social issues than with the military and violence.

      ...The situation after Katrina was, if you will remember, a matter of anarchy, as many people rioted and looted and used violence against each other, even shooting at a helicopter, and all that while relief efforts were underway.   No wonder the weapons were confiscated!    And while that's unfortunate, there has to be an authority, a law-enforcing body, in almost any situation like that.   Do I trust the entire police body?  No.  But there has to be someone in authority who can and will deal with things correctly.  Most crowds of people in a situation like that become either a part of the chaos or are victims of the chaos.

          read Obama’s true feelings on such matters from his own writings.

          Below are a few lines from Obama’s books “in his words.”

          From Dreams of My Father:

          • “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”
          • “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”
          • “There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.”
          • “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”
          • “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubois and Mandela.”

          From Audacity of Hope:


          • “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

                    Obama's ex chief of staff, Rahm Emmanuel's father was a member of the Irgun, an Israeli terrorist organization.

                    You want to tell me how Obama is pro-Muslim?

                    "The reality shows that Obama finally ended up trapped by the logic of Zionist power: Joseph Biden, Vice President (control of the lobby on the White House), Rahm Emanuel, head of the Cabinet (control of the lobby over Obama's environment), Timothy Geithner, Secretary of the Treasury (control of the lobby over the Federal Reserve System), and Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State (control of the lobby on foreign policy).

                    The maximum level of political decision, areas of presidential implementation and the president's environment, the highest level of economic and financial decision, and the design and execution of foreign policy (the heart of the Empire) will be in the hands of operators of the Jewish Zionist lobby (in Liberal version) of the banking "Big Apple" of New York.

                    In short, the White House (political power), the Treasury (financial power), the Department of State (the imperial power) and the Pentagon (military power to remain in the hands of Robert Gates) will respond to the strategic interests of Jewish lobby that will govern the U.S. with Obama as the "strawberry on the cake."


                    I happen to share this opinion, and I was HOPING Obama would be more fair in his dealings. But even a MENTION that Palestinians have rights too, is blasted as treason.

    First of all, the article reposted is a great pig pile of steaming partisan poo.

    Second, any soldier or officer (or private citizen for that matter) who takes part in a military coup against a legal, constitutionally elected government, that is, tries to violently overthrow the government of the United States, would be a traitor to the United States.

    If the President were to refuse to step down if defeated in the next election, or if he were to refuse to step down after his second term, that would be different. But at least until the next election, President Obama is still the duly elected President under the Constitution. Folks who pretend to honor the Constitution would do well to remember that.

    Finally, "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;" If Obama is doing such a terrible job, the people will fire him at the next election. If not, he's limited to one more term only, whether he stinks as president or ends the wars, restores the economy, balances the budget, and defeats the Legion of Doom. That's what I'd call 'transient.' It'll be over sooner or later, either in about one and a half years, or five and a half.

    Why on earth would people who claim to respect the Constitution seriously think that the US military should ever take it upon itself to remove a Constitutionally elected President before the end of his term?

        There's a pretty big difference between a bunch of frustrated folks fantasizing about a coup around the water-cooler and a person with journalistic pretensions advocating a military coup as if it were a better option than voting the guy out of office. Heck, this idiot even pretends that most of our military officers have been weighing this as an attractive option, and expects us to accept this assertion without question.

        If this were true, it would mean that our officers were faithless and their oaths were meaningless. But, thank goodness, our officers are not so dishonorable as to consider overthrowing a president whose policies they disagree with.

        I seem to remember* a reporter once asking a high ranking officer why he didn't just refuse to invade Iraq. The officer's answer went something like this:
        "Well, I really don't think you want the military to start refusing the orders of the President, because when that happens, you get a military coup, which would probably be worse than having a president you don't like for a few years."

        *I can't for the life of me remember the names of either the reporter or the officer, the exact words of either the question or the answer, or the exact date this exchange took place. Believe me or don't; I can't produce a source.

    The decision to write this article and the decision to print it is so mind boggling.  Why did they do it?  Certainly it could serve as another distraction away from real issues and real activities undertaken by the Obama administration.   It is so weird and uncanny a thing that I even find my wondering if it was a military psych operation which nudged these people toward an outrageous act for the sake of distraction.

      Nothing of Obama is as frightening to me as right-wingers, whom we voted out of office in 2008, of whom since that time have not ceased to call for armed insurrection against the man I voted for.

      THEN have the nerve to call me un-American,and a traitor.

      It's as simple as anything.
      The right-wing thinks they have the right to own America--citizens be damned.
      They have all the big money, the big inernational corporations on their side, as well as the anti-muslim zionists...who own the Congress of the United States.

      It's a take-over of America they are after IMO--they don't CARE about we the people...unless you are one of them.

      "Some of Obama's ideas are very frightening to [paranoid, fearful] Americans."
      There, fixed it for you.

      Rational Americans merely agree or disagree with the President's policies, for reasons they can articulate. Paranoid Americans are wetting their pants at the idea of Obama's reelection, which is incomprehensible to me; it's almost three years into the first one, and exactly none of the hysterical fears the paranoids have been shrieking about have come to pass.

    Well fortunately everything can be controlled by the goverment, even shutting down articles, to displaying them. You have a right for free speech, but whether you believe everything you read is another thing. That is why I don't like most of the discussions in forums. They are thought based opinions not facts, or research that is valid to give the clear picture of what people around the world are actually doing. The media is controlled. If they want to shut down a website or the internet they will.

    Yes, and I think he just said that Bush was pushing a socialist agenda?

      Obviously you missed all the protests against Bush when he ran for his second term in office, where he once again threatened to Sue over the vote counts in various states against John Kerry. Who decided to just give up, instead of fighting him in court.

      You also must of missed the huge crowds who showed up to throw things at him when he left office. And the huge signs that said don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. And, the reported celebrations when he was finally gone. Thank god for term limits.

        and I never heard cries of socialism,and when TARP happened, they automatically blamed Obama.

        I saw protests during Bush, which were heavily guarded and monitored.
        I never saw a gun at any of them.

          The biggest one against Bush when he ran for office the second time, happened in New York City. They had over 750,000 people marching in the protest. And, some of it was televised. People holding up signs that said, "darn good liar" and "Weapons of mass distraction." And, of course the funnier ones. "Just say NO to Bush."

          The funniest was a single guy on his cell phone at the end of the parade.
          Looking at the camera, and you could hear him saying. "Can you see me?" Then he moons the camera, and says "Hey bush kiss my ass!"
          That was hysterical!

    Also, if there is any "Coup" it should bypass Obama and go straight to the source of the problem, and get rid of all these do nothing but piss and whine and moan senators, who are doing absolutely nothing to help our economy while they block every good idea that comes across the table. Or, attach some "shock" bill like over turning abortion rights, and killing gay rights, to make it appear that the President is the problem, when the real problem is the congress.

    People like the new Governor of Michigan make Obama look like a cub scout. Stripping the rights of City governments away, and then bringing in your own non-voter appointed people to run that city, while voter elected officials are allowed to do nothing? And, this is not the only place this is happening. And, Obama has nothing to do with it.

    We have a bunch of crooked bastards running this country. If anything we should get rid of them first. If there is any coup it should be to get rid of our government entirely, and work on a government that works for everyone. It's bullshit.

      Soros is a militant atheist who despises men of faith such as George W. Bush. He is a Jew who loathes Jewish "tribalism;" a Holocaust survivor who likens Israel to Hitler's Germany; a naturalized U.S. citizen who considers himself "stateless;" a critic of "Darwinian" capitalism who ruthlessly exploited the fallen USSR in the crony-capitalist free-for-all known as "Russiagate."


      Hillary Clinton: "It
      will be outside
      forces -- something
      unforeseen that
      suddenly happens --
      that tilts the election
      one way or the other."

      Soros is a man without roots, faith or tradition, a lonely eccentric who fills his empty soul with what he calls "messianic fantasies." He dreams of using his wealth to transform our world into a godless, joyless superstate in which the very concepts of family, freedom, love of country and community will be watered down beyond recognition.

      Above all, Soros is a man ever-hungry for money and power. His dark appetites yawn too vast to find fulfillment in any ordinary life.

      Despite the many books he has written and the many interviews he has granted, Soros remains elusive. The simplest details of his life have a tendency to evaporate like dry ice in the investigator's palm.

      Part of the problem is that Soros lies. Any journalist scrutinizing this enigmatic man must cultivate a healthy disregard for his public utterances. Not only does Soros lie, but he lies fluently, frequently, pointedly and with a master's virtuosity.

      Following the November 2003 uprising that toppled Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze, Soros categorically denied press reports linking him to the coup.

      "Everything in Georgia was done by its people, not by me. I had nothing to do with it," Soros told reporters on March 31, 2004. On July 5, however, he told the Los Angeles Times, "I'm delighted by what happened in Georgia, and I take great pride in having contributed to it."

      Whatever.

      Soros evinces, at times, what can only be called a professional pride in his skill at deception. In a 1995 profile in The New Yorker, Soros told journalist Connie Bruck that the "subversive" mission of his Open Society foundations – which have supported coups and rebellions in many lands – required him to wear a variety of masks through the years. In some countries, Soros might adopt a pro-communist pose while in others he would play the anti-communist. Only Soros himself knew where he stood -- and perhaps not even Soros.

      "I would say one thing in one country, and another thing in another country," Soros boasted, with a laugh.

      Soros still wears many masks. In a June 3 speech at the Democrats' Take Back America conference, he played the role of political neophyte, claiming that he had only recently involved himself in U.S. politics, due to his outrage over Bush’s invasion of Iraq.

      "[i]t is the first time that I feel that I need to stand up and… become really engaged in the electoral process in this country," Soros said.

      This was a lie. Soros has been neck-deep in Democrat intrigue since at least 1994. Three weeks after Republicans swept Congress that year, Soros announced in a November 30, 1994 speech that he wished to "do something about… the distortion of our electoral process by the excessive use of TV advertising."



      Eight months later, Democrat Senator Russ Feingold obligingly rose on the Senate floor to denounce soft money abuses, thus setting in motion the juggernaut that would ultimately give us the McCain-Feingold Act of March 27, 2002.

      Few Americans realize that it was George Soros who bankrolled the seven-year lobbying effort that gave us McCain-Feingold.

      "Combine… the $1.7 million that Mr. Soros gave the Center for Public Integrity, the $1.3 million he gave Public Campaign, the $300,000 to Democracy 21, the $625,000 to Common Cause, and the $275,000 to Public Citizen – and you can be forgiven for believing Mr. Soros got campaign finance passed all by himself," notes a Wall Street Journal editorial.

      McCain-Feingold neatly accomplishes Soros’ goal of regulating political discourse on the airwaves. It bars "special interest groups" from placing ads for or against any candidate for federal office on TV or radio 60 days before a general election, and 30 days before a primary. These "special interest groups" can be anything from corporations to grassroots networks of concerned citizens.

      Big Media networks, on the other hand, are exempted from the blackout. Unlike other corporations, they are not classified as "special interest groups." During the blackout period, Big Media networks may say whatever they like about any candidate on their news reports and talk shows.

      McCain-Feingold thus grants to Viacom (which owns CBS); Disney (which owns ABC); GE (which owns NBC); Time Warner (which owns CNN) and to other multibillion-dollar media conglomerates what amounts to a government-enforced monopoly on political speech during election season. Curiously, wealthy individuals such as George Soros are also exempt from the TV and radio blackout.

      The U.S. Supreme Court upheld McCain-Feingold on December 10, 2003. In a dissenting opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia wrote:

          "Who could have imagined that the same Court which, within the past four years, has sternly disapproved of restrictions upon such inconsequential forms of expression as virtual child pornography, tobacco advertising, dissemination of illegally intercepted communications and sexually explicit cable programming would smile with favor upon a law that cuts to the heart of what the First Amendment is meant to protect: the right to criticize government?"

      Who indeed?

      But this is the age of George Soros. What was unthinkable yesterday has become ordinary today. By shrewdly applying his money in the right places, Soros succeeded in ripping the guts out of our First Amendment. He simultaneously purchased for himself and his Big Media allies the privilege of indulging in political speech denied to ordinary Americans.

      Election Day will be upon us in less than four months. Given the money and power at the Democrats' disposal -- and given the desperate, mass hysteria that appears to have gripped the Party of the Left -- almost anything is possible.

      I do not often cite Hillary Clinton as an authority, but, in this case, allow me to make an exception. Every American should consider what Hillary told the New York Post on March 30, 2004: "It will be outside forces -- something unforeseen that suddenly happens -- that tilts the election one way or the other."

      Now, of course, there are many sorts of "unforeseen" events that might "tilt" America toward Velvet Revolution: assassination; financial collapse; nuclear or biological terror; the last-minute release of trumped-up charges against the President. That sort of thing.

      How can ordinary Americans prepare for it all? How can we chart the right course through this tangled morass of fear, chaos, rumor, lies and confusion?

      History offers some guidance. Consider Switzerland's plight in April 1940, when fifteen German divisions prepared to invade the tiny country. Switzerland would have been crushed.

      Soros makes his money by engaging in speculative currency trades. His "dog in the fight" is less about the UN and more about preserving international banking secrecy, which is being threatened by the war on terrorism.
      In short, he wants to be able to trash other country's economies at his own whim, even if it means allowing al-Qaeda to kill a few thousand or more people at one time. After all, you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.
      Currency speculators are, by their nature, shady characters without especially firm codes of ethics. They frequently have to procure information not generally available to the public; said information is often found in the hands of goobermint employees or elected officials. (Can you say "bribery," boys and girls?" I knew you could!) They frequently come across other shady persons engaged in nefarious actions. They usually do not report this stuff to the authorities, because it will engender all manner of awkward questioning re: how they happened to learn about the nefarious actions.

        The "Alchemy of Finance" contains one of the most arrogant confessions I've ever seen in print, as well as some fascinating insights into how Soros used the misconceptions of economists, finance theorists, and traders who relied on them, to make his pile. Below two bios: to provide some perspective.


        George Soros

        * Hungarian businessman. Jewish; original family name is Schwartz.
        * Net worth estimated at $20B.
        * A man of enormous wealth and ability to deploy it in unexpected ways.
        * Partner in the Carlyle Group.
        * Was the owner of Harken Energy, and bought its declining shares so that George W Bush could make a million dollars. His reason to do that: "political influence."
        * As currency speculator, cost the UK a billion dollars in one day.
        * Hated by Lyndon LaRouche.
        * Member, Council on Foreign Relations.

        Timeline
        12 Aug 1930 George Soros born, Budapest Hungary.
        1944 Hides for a year from the Nazis, after they invade Hungary.
        1947 Leaves Hungary for Britain to attend London School of Economics.
        1956 Moves to United States.
        1969 Establishes Quantum Fund, and dabbles in currency manipulation. Average return of that fund is an astonishing 35% per year, since its inception.
        1979 Establishes Open Society Fund, New York City.
        16 Sep 1992 In a brazen act of currency speculation, places a hedge bet that the UK will devalue the Pound Sterling. In September this nets him $1B in a single day.
        1995 Appointed director, Council on Foreign Relations.
        1997 Attacks the currencies of Thailand and Malaysia. A Thai source said: "We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks blood from the people." [Heather Coffin, Covert Action Quarterly.]
        2002 Convicted of insider trading, with regards to the stock of a French bank in 1988. Fined $2M.
        Nov 2002 Soros is the primary sponsor of Nevada's ballot initiative to legalize marijuana.
        12 Sep 2003 "If you impose morality on [business], it means that you are actually with your hands tied behind your back and you're not going to be successful. It's extremely hard to be successful." Interview, David Brancaccio, Now with Bill Moyers.
        7 Nov 2003 Moscow offices of the Soros Foundation stormed by forty armed men who seize papers and seal the building, after Soros criticized the recent jailing of one of Russia's oligarchs, Mikhail Khodorkovsky of oil company Yukos. The building's owner claims rent was not being paid, an unlikely explanation.

            So you have nothing real to say and now use Baby tactics? I posted real words from his own mouth and things you can refute if you can, but you have absolutely nothing and do baby ZZZZZZZZZZZ

            come on LMC I think you can do much better than that. Show me how in koch's words that they are trying to destroy America. You try and even make it seem worse by saying the planet, I almost wet my pants in laughter after that one! I will be waiting for some info to prove Koch said such and such from an interview or book like I posted and you can check! Did Koch take down other countries currencies? Do they openly state their evil intentions? please post for us to see. I will be waiting. I hope we do not get some more ZZZZ's or some other distraction from the facts. lets see what your made of.

              I'm still waiting for proof you're a Democrat.
              NOW you like Koch???

              Give me a break!
              You like to research. Google Koch and the environment, see what you get.

              Oooops, not on you radar, huh?
