A review of “THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT”

Barack Obama’s ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists

MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT OBAMA

American journalist, author and radio host, Aaron Klein, along with historian and researcher, Brenda J. Elliott blow the lid off the dome of silence surrounding the Obama administration as they boldly unmask the nation’s 44th president in their latest chilling monograph entitled. “The Manchurian President: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists” (WND Books – May 2010). Providing close to 900 footnotes and countless pages of documentation they reveal surreptitious ties to radical leftists of all stripes. If the title of this book sounds at all familiar, it is a takeoff on the 1959 political thriller novel by Robert Condon called “The Manchurian Candidate” in which the son of a prominent US political family has been brainwashed into being an unwitting assassin for the Communist party.

While Klein does not infer that President Obama is part of a Communist sleeper cell, he does present an exhaustive investigation into President Obama’s background and his radical ties to pivotal figures in the Communist movement, both inside the White House and out who also happen to be major players in crafting legislation, including the economic stimulus package. This weighty tome weaves a complex spider’s web of a narrative that is replete with a plethora of names and organizations of radical leftists, hitherto unknown by the public, who helped shape Obama’s ideology and career.

Starting with Obama’s childhood affiliation as a Sunday school attendee at the First Unitarian in Honolulu, a radical activist church that not only served as sanctuary for draft dodgers in the 1960s and 70s but had strong links to the even more radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Klein embellishes on the movement that gave birth to the underground terrorist offshoot called Weatherman. It was through this organization that Obama liaison Bill Ayers achieved fame as a Pentagon bomber-conspirator and a notorious leftist student agitator. Ayers summed up the Weatherman ideology which he referred to as “an American Red Army” by saying, “Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents.”

Klein informs us that Obama worked directly with Ayers in Chicago back in 1988, after Ayers resurfaced from his underground status amid multiple criminal charges related to his extremist activities. The charges were dropped due to prosecutorial misconduct. The two were introduced by Gerald “Jerry” Kellman, a Marxist acolyte of radical community organizer Saul Alinsky, and thus, a professional association was forged as Obama served with the Ayers’ run community advocacy coalition called the Alliance for Better Chicago Schools, or ABC. When Obama launched his political career in 1995, the venue for his first fundraiser was the Chicago apartment of Bill Ayers and the two served alongside each other from 1995 to 2000 on a $100 million education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge or CAC.

Says Klein, “To underscore Ayers’ radical mentality in 1995, while he worked closely with Obama, the unrepentant terrorist gave an interview in that year for author Ron Chepesiuk’s book Sixties Radicals, in which Ayers stated, “I’m a radical, leftist, small ‘c’ communist.”

Following the guidelines of Alinsky-like tactics of working within the system to overthrow the capitalist structure of American government, Klein speaks of Obama’s direct links to the CAC’s role in “disbursing money through various far-left community organizers, such as ACORN.” Such Socialist led organizations and unions like Project VOTE!, the SEIU (Service Employees International Union), the AFL-CIO (the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations), AFSCME (American Federation of State and County Municipal Employees) and the Apollo Alliance are also directly linked to ACORN and Obama cronies with “questionable” ties. Quoting from a 2001 book by Jarol B. Manheim, “The Death of a Thousand Cuts: Corporate Campaigns and the Attack on the Corporation”, Klein says that “by 1986, ACORN had forged institutional ties with AFL-CIO Central Labor Councils in at least 30 cities” and that ACORN’s “People’s Platform” included such radical reformist objectives as “free medical care, a public defender system, the elimination of the state income tax for low income people and higher welfare benefits.”

Obama’s associations with the Nation of Islam, Black Liberation Theology and black political extremists are also revealed in nuanced detail, as Klein sheds light on the fact that Obama attended the million man march organized by Nation of Islam leader and rabid Jew hater, Louis Farrakhan. For over 20 years Obama attended the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago where Farrakhan gave guest lectures at the behest of anti-American extremist preacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Klein also uncovers the fact that the Nation of Islam was on Obama’s payroll in the early days of his political career and that his senior advisor, David Axelrod also maintained ties to radical Islam through his association as a board member of St. Sabena’s Church in Chicago which served as a haven for black nationalists of the Nation of Islam variety.

The backgrounds of other key Obama advisors and “Czars” such as Valerie Jarrett, Van Jones, Andy Stern, Cass Sunstein and John Holdren are also carefully scrutinized by Klein as well as their political leanings and the influence they wield in this current administration. Ghastly epiphanies proliferate, as Klein documents the fact that Communist Party member, Frank Marshall Davis who would become a mentor to the young Barack Obama in Hawaii worked closely with Vernon Jarrett, Valerie Jarrett’s father-in-law in at least three communist dominated organizations in Chicago in the late 1940s. Former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, who resigned his post in September of 2009, was forced out of his job by allegations of association with a Marxist group during the 1990s. Having been arrested several times during the 90s for political activism, Jones was quoted in a November 2005 interview with the East Bay Express as saying that while in jail, “”I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.'”

“The Manchurian President” also exposes how Obama’s health-care policy, masked by moderate populist rhetoric, was pushed along and partially crafted by extremists. Some of them reveal in their own words that their principal aim is to achieve corporate socialist goals and a vast increase in government powers.

Klein was recently quoted on FOX news as saying, “It is clear that Barack Obama has ties to an anti-American fringe nexus that was instrumental in building his political career from the beginning all the way through now.” He adds that, “I believe this work is crucial to Americans from across the political spectrum, including mainstream Democrats who should be alarmed that their party has been hijacked by an extreme-left bent on permanently changing the party to fits its radical agenda.”

This meticulously documented piece of outstanding investigative research is a must read for all good citizens of this great country who are concerned with the future of our cherished freedoms and values.

“Lady Gaga ‘Mocking’ the Holy Ghost” by Joseph R. Chambers

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

One of Lady Gaga’s songs on YouTube has drawn 223,934,322 hits (as of Thursday, 06-10-10). That’s getting close to one hit for every American citizen. How has such a “success” occurred? Only Satan can give that widespread recognition of the world to one person. Remember, he promised it to Jesus Christ, but the Son of God said, “No!”

It occurred in this fashion, “And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, all this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Luke 4:5-8). Jesus did not deny that Satan had this awesome power related to this world system. It has been proven often that “he is the god of this world” (II Corinthians 4:4).

The Psalmist David spoke of this wickedness and the pains of watching them prosper in their wicked lifestyle. He said, “I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree. Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found” (Psalm 37:35-36). This man that became a “man after God’s own heart” (Acts 13:22), was wise enough to go to God’s House and learn the secrets of righteous judgment. “Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end” (Psalm 73:12, 16-17). Oh, that this generation would learn this truth.

Lady Gaga is just another lost soul that has sold herself to Satan for a short time of power and success. The name of this popular song is “Bad Romance” and it is clear that she is singing of the devil. The lyrics begin with her singing in strange ramblings. I believe the devil means the strange words as a blasphemy against the Holy Ghost and the tongue of fire we see in Acts on the Day of Pentecost. The Holy Bible says, “And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:3-4).

I believe that she is singing in the tongues of fallen angels. Some of the lyrics of this song are sung in French, other lines do not translate. If she is singing in a version of tongues, then every spirit of Satan understands her and incredible powers of evil are communicated. That is the reason for her huge success. We had better learn the truth of Satan’s powers as we approach the end. A great company of souls, especially young people, are being affected and even possessed as they submerge themselves with lyrics like this and the spirit of Satan’s anointed singers. Apostle Paul spoke of speaking in the tongue of angels, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal” (I Corinthians 13:1).

It would make sense that Satan’s fallen angels have a tongue of their own that is different from the great company of God’s holy angels. According to Jude, the angels of God speak to the world of Satan’s angels and to Satan himself. Jude described this interchange between them, “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee” (Jude 1:6, 8-9).

These kinds of evil activities are occurring all over the world and will grow more intent by the day. Jesus warned us that at the end of the church age and the regathering of Israel that evil would escalate to equal Noah’s Day. “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be” (Matthew 24:37-39). I do not believe it is possible to doubt that this is that day of which Jesus spoke.

Recently, a dear soul called me with a question that describes how far from God the church world has fallen. The minister of this person’s church was claiming to have had sex with the Holy Ghost. Of course, this was a demon masquerading as the Holy Spirit. This is believed by many to be exactly what happened in Noah’s Day. “There were giants (Nephilims) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:4-5).

I do not know how far and deep this kind of depravity will reach, but I do know that great multitudes are going in this direction. The biggest fad at this moment is vampires and black magic. Fallen angels can and do appear in human form. Apostle Paul spoke of angels and ministers being transformed as ministers of righteousness. “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” (II Corinthians 11:13-15).

Most people are uncomfortable with this kind of information. Satan absolutely loves for you to reject knowing the truth about him and his designs of deception and imitation. Satan and his evil spirits thrive in the darkness of rejected truth. “Lady Gaga” might have used her talent for Jesus Christ if she had known the wonderful truth of the Lord. Yet, Elvis Presley was raised in truth but still sold his soul for rock and roll. It’s a choice that every person must make. Satan will offer you his beguiling glory if you give him an open door into your head and heart. The devil will make a short work of this young lady (Lady Gaga). Let her deception be an example of Satan’s game. Make sure you are covered in the security of Christ’s shed blood.

“Next Hizbullah War May Be Over Israel’s Gas and Oil Fields” by Chris Schang

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

In today’s news came an interesting report that stated that the next Israeli war with Hizbullah could be one over the recently discovered gas and oil fields off the coast of Israel. Israel has made these discoveries and claimed the fields for themselves. This is something that would be a great boost to the Jewish state and help them become a major player in the world energy sector. To demonstrate the current state of these oil fields the Israel National News is reporting:

Hizbullah has laid claim to a huge oil and gas field that Israel discovered off its northeastern Mediterranean Coast — and which Lebanon already has claimed as well. The terrorist organization warned that it will not allow Israel to take possession of the offshore fields, which could make the Jewish State energy self-sufficient for the first time in history. The As-Safir Lebanese newspaper told its readers that the gas field “was located between Israeli and Cypriot territorial waters and stretches toward the Lebanese coast.”Lebanese newspapers also reported that previous Israeli gas finds “were either taking place in areas stretching to Lebanese territorial waters or other spots far away from the Israeli coast.”

The INN article quoted Hizbullah officials as saying that they would not allow Israel to “loot” their natural resources. These newly discovered gas and oil fields could be a major source of funding for whoever is able to develop the fields. Hizbullah and Lebanon would like nothing more than a significant funding source for their efforts to destroy Israel. On the other hand it is clear that Israel is planning to develop these fields and it could be that such a move will trigger a war in the future. There is a lot at stake in the development of these gas and oil fields. The INN news article also state:

Hizbullah’s claims were stated by the party’s executive council chief Hashem Safieddine, who was quoted by the Tehran Times as saying it would not allow Israel to “loot” Lebanese gas resources. Lebanese parliamentary speaker Nabih Berri previously said, “Israel is racing to make the case a fait accompli and was quick to present itself as an oil emirate, ignoring the fact that, according to the maps, the deposit extends into Lebanese waters. Exploring our options in this field is our best bet to pay off Lebanon’s debts.”

However, the Israeli government denied that the gas and oil fields were in the Lebanese areas and even pointed out that the UN regulations state that Israel can develop the newly discovered energy fields. The INN article went on even further to state:

The Israeli government immediately responded to the Lebanese claims, saying they are totally unfounded and that all of the gas and oil fields are off the coast of Israel and not Lebanon. Dr. Yaakov Mimran, director of energy exploration for the National Infrastructures Ministry, called the claims “nonsense.” He added, “These noises occur when they smell gas. Until then they sit quietly and let the other side spend the money.” Marine law expert Amir Cohen-Dor told the Globes business news service that the Dalit and Tamar gas fields are within Israel’s contiguous economic zone, and that United Nations regulations clearly state that Israel can develop them.

There was a recent article out a few weeks ago that reported that new studies have shown that the fields hold more gas and oil than previously thought. These findings will be a bonanza for Israel and will help them to become an energy self-sufficient country for the first time in their history. For students of Bible prophecy these discoveries could further speed up the end times prophecies. In Ezekiel 38-39 the prophet records that the Gog and Magog allies are asked if they have come to invade Israel to take a “spoil”. A spoil could easily include over-running Israel and seizing their newly discovered energy riches. Couple this with the minerals that are in the Dead Sea and suddenly you have a very plausible scenario where the invaders can literally come for an economic spoil or looting.

To further bolster this scenario it is likely we all can remember that over the last few years Russia has been giving the Europeans a really hard time with providing a stable supply of gas for their cold winter months. The Russians did this to gain political and military ground at the expense of the Europeans. The discovery of gas in Israel could provide the Europeans with a reliable means and supply of gas, thereby allowing them to potentially bypass the Russians who have shown themselves to be unreliable. A development of this magnitude would surely not go over well in Moscow as Russia uses the money generated from gas and oil sales to prop up the Russian economy. I do not think it is a far fetched idea that these gas and oil fields could be part of the “spoil” spoken about in Ezekiel 38-39. This is to me certainly possible.

As a result, students of Bible prophecy need to keep an eye out in the news for any significant developments related to the new developing Israeli energy sector. This could be a key in the coming Gog and Magog conflict. I also believe that the discovery of the gas and oil fields is not a coincidence either. To me, this is another example of how God has accurately foretold the future and given us clues to look for in the end times. With the prophetic puzzle pieces moving around the end times game board, we surely can see that time is running out and that the foretold prophetic events are just over the horizon.

God bless.
