The fact was buried deep inside the book Rising Star, the laborious 1,460 page biography of Barack Obama in Chicago which very few have read, that when living in Hyde Park near the University of Chicago in the early 1990s Barack would have regular dinners at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the 1960s and 70s bomb-making Weather Underground radicals, who would eventually launch Barack’s political career from their living room in 1995.
The dinners were always filled with lively political discussions, but not about the inner brawls of Chicago’s bare-knuckles politics, once ruled by legendary Bernadine and Bill’s nemesis Boss Richard J. Daley for 20 years, or even the scaled down political machine run by his more dimwitted son Richard M. who warmed his father’s old chair as Mayor for another 22 years, including the years Barack had dinners at the Ayers/Dohrn home.
Though not mentioned in the book, the discussions at the Ayers/Dohrn dinners just off the University of Chicago campus were largely about Marxism, and how to utilize it to bring social justice to Chicago’s black population, mired in poverty and violence, as well as ways to bring down the “system of white supremacy” – Bill’s term for capitalism and the white middle class because that is what the 60’s revolutionary couple was still all about.
Because through the 1990s and even today in their 70s, both Bill and Bernadine still considered themselves radicals of the socialist order if not communists, holding on to the tenets of their Weather Underground manifesto, which they wrote in 1969, which declared: “the goal (of revolution) is the destruction of U.S. imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism.”
And Barack told us Bill was “just some guy I knew from the neighborhood.”
Both Ayers and Dohrn were products of white, upper-middle-class suburban Midwest upbringing, and connected to each other in part by the massive guilt that upbringing stirred in them relative to the poverty and racism of blacks in Chicago and elsewhere. At the time of their manifesto, written during the height of the Vietnam War and Civil rights movements, the fiery Bernadine would tell her Weather Underground comrades: “The best thing that we can be doing for ourselves, as well as the Black Panthers and the revolutionary black liberation struggle is to build a fucking white revolutionary movement.”
So by the time they came up from underground hiding and off the FBI’s Most Wanted list in the late 1970s, they had settled into middle class existence among the professors and students and coffee shops in intellectual Hyde Park, but having having lost none of their fire for revolutionary change.
They were now practicing a new socialist activism, one preached by the other famous radical from the 1960s, Saul Alinsky, who wrote the book Rules for Radicals, the new modern revolutionary’s holy tome, which he dedicated to Lucifer, “the first radical, who did his job so well they gave him his own kingdom.”
Saul had said to the violent middle class 60s radical/revolutionaries like the Weather Underground: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within.”
In the early 1980s they found Barack, who came to Chicago to learn Alinsky community organizing methods on the black South Side, while he tried to find his own identity as a black/white man.
The Ayers/Dohrn’s took Barack under their wings like a fledgling bird, to teach him the finer points of the Marxism he had learned as a teenager in Hawaii under the tutelage of a man named Frank Marshal Davis, an African American card carrying communist newspaper writer and poet from Chicago during the 1940s, who was sent to the then American territory in the Pacific by the Kremlin to recruit and organize.
In the early 1970s, Frank was introduced to the then fatherless, confused mulatto teenager Barack, and mentored him for six years in his Soviet Communism, at the same time Bill and Bernadine were back in the states setting off bombs at government buildings and police stations, and before Barack went off to the states for college.
As was often the case, the dinners at the Ayers/Dohrn home would center on how to dismember the “system of white supremacy” – capitalism and the white middle class – using Marxism and Alinsky Rules to install a socialist Utopia where everyone, especially the still enslaved black and brown skinned races, were all equal, without all the capitalist distractions that divided them.
It was also during this time that Bernadine and Bill floated the idea to Barack that he could be the first president of the United States with African American blood, which appealed to the ambitious young man, and they could help him get there.
First, Barack would have to play the white man’s political game, pretending he was part of the Democratic political system, and Bernadine and Bill would connect him with two other Hyde Parkers, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, who were both City Hall insiders under Richard the Younger, but who also had deep commie roots through their parents and relatives, who could help build Barack’s political resume.
All went well early for Barack, though boring, in the state legislature, until he lost a run for U.S. Congress in 2002 to former Black Panther Bobby Rush – a dilemma for Bill and Bernadine in their Panther solidarity – as Rush easily beat Barack, calling him “a white man in black face” and an “educated fool” from Harvard, which Barack couldn’t overcome with the mostly black congressional district voters who revered Bobby.
Then, former U.S. Congressman and another Hyde Park neighbor Abner Mikva encouraged Barack to listen to preachers to understand public speaking, “listen(ing) to patterns of speech, how to take people up the ladders. It’s almost a Baptist tradition to make someone faint, and, by God, he’s doing it now.”
At the 2004 Democratic convention, he finally pulled it off, mesmerizing the national news media in his keynote speech that he was the Second Coming of Dr. Martin Luther King. He soon thereafter was anointed by Chicago talk show host Oprah Winfrey, a friend of Valerie’s, who called Barack the “new (black) Messiah,” the one who could lift blacks from their depression of racist poverty and give them hope.
Along with the media’s mania over Barack, it would be Oprah’s blessing before her millions of suburban housewife viewers that would carry the first (half) black president to the White House, though never, ever a mention of the nights discussing Marxism with Frank in Hawaii, or the Ayers/Dohrn dinners debating how to dismantle the system of white supremacy.
Little did white suburbia and all the Millennials who voted for him know – or even all the black folks who went to the polls in record numbers – that the Change that he preached was Saul Alinsky change: “The despair is there. Now it’s up to us to go in and rub raw the sores of discontent, galvanize them for radical social change.”
That’s why Barack’s presidency confused so many who thought he was the next Dr. King, seeing that the “transformation change” he promised was not about helping blacks rise above their misery and despair, but about dividing the races, stirring anger and fear between blacks and whites, while trying to dismantle capitalism and the white middle class through massive over-regulation of the economy and financial markets; loading up Cabinet departments like EPA, Education, State and Justice, with Marxist thinkers to bring down the extractive resource industry – the foundation of capitalism and the middle class – as well as get more poor illiterate people of color into the country for future Alinsky organizing and call them “Dreamers.”
He also began befuddling the white middle class with his LGBTQ agenda by getting homosexual marriage into the constitution, and ramming the gay lifestyle into school curriculum and corporations and the military, and, importantly, getting as many homosexuals and radical feminists into newsrooms to deliver us our news each night.
Meanwhile, Barack’s administration came down hard on the white American male, the cornerstone of white supremacy, bullying the LGBTQ into the male dominated corporate world; passing Obamacare, which was essentially a tax on young white working males and small businesses, who now had to have “mandatory” health insurance with huge premiums, because Bill and Bernadine had told him their revolution was about a new world order without white male domination, preaching to him they “didn’t want to live in a (white) male supremacist society.”
Barack quickly nationalized all student loans, with loan shark interest rates, which went primarily to white middle class kids, which included an inability to extricate themselves from those loans even in bankruptcy, while creating a high-unemployment economy that produced only low-pay, part-time work. All the while, he did nothing to help lift black people from their crushing poverty, except get more of them on the dependency of government aid, while fatherless black teenagers, especially in northern cities like Chicago, continued their genocidal war over the drug trade.
But the point was never to help lift black people from their poverty, as Bill and Bernadine had explained, only to stoke black anger against white society, and white fear of blacks, which Bill Ayers continued to do in Chicago while Barack was in Washington, helping create such Alinsky community attack groups like Black Lives Matter, with the help of Barack’s other friend, billionaire globalist George Soros, which emerged out of the riots in Henderson, Missouri, following a white off-duty cop shooting a young black man, which turned that city into a violent angry slum for both blacks and whites.
Barack’s Justice Department would be sent to Chicago, and with the silent direction from Ayers have the Chicago Police Department officially designated a “racist organization” – a first for an American city – which helped stoke more black anger against whites, and accelerate civil rights lawsuits against the city, with multi-million dollar settlements paid by taxpayer money – an innovative way to redistribute wealth socialist style.
We all know how the story ends, or at least the first part: a capitalist with blonde combover won a populist election over Barack’s choice Hillary, despite their best efforts to stop him.
But by the time Trump was sworn in, Barack had control of the media, especially CNN and the NBC networks, as well as through well-placed homosexuals and radical feminists at the once great New York Times and Washington Post, followed by the others like sheep. So he went underground like Bernadine and Bill while still controlling CNN and others, directing the assault on Trump to bring down the democratically elected capitalist president.
Through CNN and the others, Barack has been able to use Alinsky tactics of demonizing and ridicule, with made up news, for a sustained, ongoing media assault on Trump, all fake and manufactured – first Russian Collusion, then trying to tie the Donald to alleged racist and anti-semetic mass shootings, then the impeachment inquiry, with old friend Adam Schiff steamrolling the constitution and rule of law to remove Trump from office.
Now we have the coronavirus hysteria, a fearmongering campaign driven almost solely by CNN and followed by the others like sheep, which has turned a not untypical pandemic virus, where like the others ninety-nine percent of those infected will survive, and where we are told up to fifty percent of those infected will show no symptoms. Through constant relentless fear spewed into hour homes, the newsreaders have turned it into the 21st Century Black Plague, with Trump the bogeyman for not providing enough ventilators to hospitals, which is the responsibility of the states.
The pandemic fear spewed through television sets has allowed Democratic/Progressive governors, to shut down commerce in entire states and cities, closing businesses and ordering the newly unemployed people into their homes, all using Alinsky bullying tactics: “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” “You only get power as a reaction to a threat.” “Keep the pressure on, never let up.”
We are now in a media driven recession, with enormous growing pressure on working families and the middle class, especially those with children not in closed schools.
But more than that: there are dark, frightening clouds of fear hovering over cities like Chicago and New York, which feels eerily like a socialist totalitarian state, where strict rules for social behavior have been imposed, and businesses and activities have creepily come out of the blue, designating “essential” human commerce (pot shops, liquor stores, skilled trades so as not to piss off the unions) as well as “non-essential,” activities and places where people could go for comfort in the lock-down (parks, churches, schools, restaurants). Even businesses that are allowed to stay open are required to adhere to the “social distancing” rule of staying six feet apart, which is driving business away, and amping up anxiety levels and despair.
People are told to stay in their homes and not socialize, even with friends. We seem to be moving toward a “new normal,” where people are constantly suspicious of one another, having to wear face masks when they do go outside, which would go another notch in isolating people from social interaction. It’s all for our protection, we are told, though it is Alinsky, who said when you make an attack, do it as though it appears coming from a higher moral plane, when it is really all about stirring fear in order to gain more power and control for yourself and your cause.
Meanwhile prisoner are being let out of Cook County jail in Chicago and elsewhere around the country, another pet project of Ayers as well as Soros, under the guise of helping them avoid corona-virus, so they can likely unleash more fear into the city.
Now in Barack’s and Bernadine’s and Bill’s new socialist Chicago, we are seeing totalitarian control imposed, along with the rest of the nation, enabled by an unceasing onslaught of media fear into homes, while the capitalist economy gets pulverized into recession and possible depression.
In Chicago, Barack’s the media fear campaign and government’s forced stay-at-home shutdown of the economy, has turned a once vibrant and hard-working city into a fearful fascist state, where all the wonderful shops and restaurants lay idle, many never able to recover, and once friendly residents are becoming fearful of one another because of an unseen deadly force they are told is in the air.
At the beginning of the media pandemic in Chicago, which was second after California to lock down, tiny stone-faced lesbian Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who Barack and Bill quietly helped win election and still silently direct, threatened to call the cops on white North Side residents if they went to the lakefront to enjoy the weather and escape their confinement of their apartments.
It was an interesting handing off of the fascist baton, as back in the 1960s, Bill and Bernadine had branded Boss Daley a fascist when he turned his blue helmeted Irish cops on their radical Weatherman comrades during their “Days of Rage” protests along Michigan Avenue in 1969, breaking store windows and smashing cars and finally being tear-gassed and hauled off by Daley’s cops.
Now, with their lesbian Mayor Lori, and the back-up of their Alinsky bullying media, they are the fascists.
But as Ayers said as far back as the 1960s, “in a revolution, sometimes people have to die.” The same could be said for a once great city, where fear and suspicion of one’s fellow man now hangs everywhere and keeps people in lock down not unlike Soviet Moscow in the good old days. As Marx said, in order to dismantle a democracy or culture and install socialism, one must first break down the spirit of a people and make them angry and afraid.
Or, to put the current situation in the words of the prophetic turn-of-the-20th Century newspaperman Joseph Pulitzer: “The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations” and, “Our republic and its press will rise or fall together.”
Along with the help of people underground who are pulling the strings.
