This is not a book bashing Obama because he doesn't wear an american flag pin on his suit or because he might be a closet Muslim.
Instead, this book tackles the history of fascism, the geopolitical strategy of the Brzezinski group, the politics of Obama's main advisors and supporters, and a history of Jimmy Carter's Presidency as it relates to his relationship with Zbigniew Brzezinski. After a study of these topics and people, the central question becomes obvious: did Obama choose these people, or did these people choose Obama?
One of the reasons this book is so important is clear when we consider the reasoning the American people had when electing Bush. Everyone knew he wasn't a foreign policy genius, but the average Bush voter figured that if he was surronded with the 'best and brightest' then everthing would turn out alright.
If only we had paid more attention to his advisors - the neocons, vulcans and members of the infamous Project for a New American Century - we could have predicted and maybe averted our latest adventures in the Middle East.
For this same reason, we should make sure we study Obama's advisors and determine what Obama's "Change" will really look like before it is too late.

Author Tarpley has written an expose of Obama as the next Manchurian Candidate (the first was Carter), recruited, trained, husbanded, financed and handled by the Bilderbergs and their American subsidiary, the Trilateral Commission. Unfortunately, the book is VERY repetitive, going over and over the same material, and loaded with invective and really scurrilous personal attacks and ill-advised adjectives. Apparently it is impossible for the author to mention many names without using descriptive adjectives like reactionary, doltish, evil, idiotic, fascist, scoundrel, etc. The use of such terms is hardly scholarly, and indeed the author makes no pretense of offering a scholarly work, preferring instead to offer a polemic.
The author includes essays by others than himself, but who offer essentially nothing new or different that those points made in his own chapters. In essence, more than half of the book can be skipped without missing anything.
The theme is that Obama was spotted and recruited by Zbigniew Brzezinski for his eventual election to President while Obama was studying political science at Columbia. Zbig was teaching there at the same time (1982-83), and Obama wrote his senior paper on a subject of Zbig's primary interest, "Soviet Nuclear Disarmament." Obama has provided essentially no information concerning his time at Columbia and the influence of Zbig.
Lest this seem unbelievable to the reader who is unfamiliar with Zbig's role as co-founder (with David Rockefeller) of the Trilateral Commission (TC), the author serves up a few relatively undisputed facts. Zbig was put on to Jimmy Carter in 1973 by George Franklin when Carter was an unknown governor of Georgia. Zbig liked what he saw and understood that Carter would be subservient and easily handled, so took Carter to Rockefeller and the two catapulted Carter into the Presidency. It must be remembered that Carter came from nowhere, and only seven months before his nomination, was preferred by only four percent of the Democrats. The Trilateral influence was brought to bear and it proved decisive. And Zbig became Carter's National Security Advisor, TC, CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and Bilderberg Paul Volcker took over the Federal Reserve. In fact, Carter's cabinet was stuffed with TC, CFR and Bilderberg members, as has every administration had their cabinets and top bureaucratic positions including the CIA filled by Bilderbergs, TC & CFR members since then.
Unfortunately Carter was totally inept, and Ronald Reagan's "Reagan Democrat" revolt proved to be a nasty surprise for the Bilderbergs, Zbig & David Rockefeller. The first George Bush was better (also a CFR & TC member), but he still did not move the country into a public-private partnership of socialism and giant international corporations to control the country on a national and international level. Pamela Harriman introduced Bill Clinton to the Bilderbergs in 1991, and he was anointed by them to be the next President a year before he was actually elected. Zbig was back in power, if a little behind the scene. Incredibly, George W. Bush stole the election from the approved Al Gore, and even held his own against Bilderbergs John Kerry and John Edward. But now there would be no fooling around. It was time to bring someone forward who was totally bred and groomed for the Presidency and one who would dance every tune the Bilderbergs and TCs played. Although Bill Clinton was a Bilderberg, TC & CFR, Hillary was not. Enter Barack Obama.
The author cites how Obama's career was managed for him: from his assisted entry into Harvard Law School, Editor of the Law Review, his movement to Chicago and receiving a position to teach constitutional law, then his election to the Illinois State Senate (unopposed, as the expensive Bilderberg lawyers were able to have all Obama's opponents' names taken off the ballot), and even his election to the US Senate. In that campaign, the Democratic front runner was destroyed by the timely breaking of a scandal story, and then his popular Republican opponent, Jack Ryan, was destroyed and forced to abandon his candidacy when Obama's handlers were able to get an LA judge to unseal Ryan's divorce settlement and give it to the press. Obama walked in against little more than a token protest vote. In the Senate Obama was instructed to avoid voting on controversial bills so his carefully coached controlled voice and cadenced speeches would be the only face he would present. The author points out that Obama is strictly a nothing front man, but his vacuous speeches are able to almost hypnotize his audiences. Much like Mussolini, Chavez, Castro and Hitler were able to do.
These are the main elements of the author's theme, but he also spends a good of space on fascism, and the One World Order goals of the Bilderberg, TC and CFR organizations. The surprising element in all this is that the author is a committed leftist, and his criticism of Obama comes from the left. He puts Obama more readily under the fascist label than the socialist, although clearly the two labels become blurred together is the state envisioned by Zbig, the Bilderbergs & company.
There is much to ponder in this book, particularly in view of the collapse of the US economy predicted by the author that was to be engineered by the Bilderbergs at the right time to ensure Obama's election. The price of oil almost terminated Obama's candidacy, but the Bilderbergs were able to get the price under control and reduced by their financiers in Europe and Asia.
If this book's themes seem improbable or the Bilderbergs, TC or CFR are unknown to the reader, he would be advised to read Daniel Estulin's "The True Story of The Bilderberg Group", James Perloff's "The Shadows of Power - The Council on Foreign Relations And The American Decline", and Robert Ross's "Who's Who of the Elite - Members of the Bilderbergs, Council on Foreign Relations & Trilateral Commission".
As I said, these is truly much here to read and ponder, but the presentation was awful. The overblown content rated five stars; the presentation and writing only one. So I compromised on three. Still, I recommend the reader buy and read this book.
In opening Professor Webster Griffin Tarpley's book "OBAMA The Postmodern Coup", I did not imagine how this latest work of his would speak to me in a manner so powerful. Webster Griffin Tarpley has presented us with an analysis of current events, so devastating as to leave us reeling in utter dismay and disarming our general complaisance, rudely awakening us from the smug satisfaction that we know what's going on. But what Tarpley is telling us cannot be! But then again we have not dug up the facts, even though some of us are capable, and then like Tarpley fearlessly let the truth out.
Webster Griffin Tarpley's defining moment when laying out the facts that clearly show the molding of Barack Obama as a creature that was formed into a puppet to be be molded as the Democratic candidate for the Presidency in the forthcoming November election. With little choice of prospective candidates Obama, as Tarpley writes "was a student at Columbia University in 1981-1983 where he was studying politics, doing his thesis on Soviet nuclear disarmament," and was taken in hand by Zbigniew Brzezinski who was head of the anti-communist Russian Department at the University. Obama possessed the formative character background that made the molding of his specific nature susceptible to the manipulations of the puppeteer Brzezinski who presented Obama to the Rockefeller Trilateral Commission. As Tarpley writes "Obama would be nobody without the investiture, financing, networking, media support and other forms of assistance provided by Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Trilateral Commission, Skull and Bones, and other members of the financier elite."
Tarpley dwells in detail on the true nature of Zbigniew Brzezinski. He had previously offered assistance to Carter after Carter announced his intention to run for President, So Brzezinski, in 1975, taking advantage of Carter's acceptance of his offer of aid brought Carter the support of the Trilaterial Commission ( p.55). This in the end led to the failures in the Carter regime."Zbig who was kept in the closet for many months during the Carter administration because of his hideous Dr. Strangelove persona"(p.176)...."Any lingering doubts about Obama's status as an abject puppet of Zbezniew Brzezinski and the Rockefeller Trilaterial commission ended this morning when the withered mummy of imperialism himself appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe to campaign for Obama urged on by his own moronic daughter Mika Brzezinski, an Obama groupie and sycophant" (p.176)....."Zbigniew, a low level Polish aristocrat whose life has been devoted to hatred for Russia, lauded Obama for his 2002 speech opposing the Iraq war, saying he himself was the source of Obama's arguments back then - thus confirming Obama's long-term status as his puppet"(p.176).
Brzezinski's evil design as an "aging revanchist" is to develop all avenues that would lead to the crushing of Russia, smashing it into smithereens. Tarpley's profile of Brzezinski brings to the fore the thorough details it deserves. As for the concern of Obama, Tarpley has laid a thin layer of veneer over his real persona. On this veneer are the do good platitudes,
b ut also on this surface veneer was Obama's strategy as expressed by Tarpley; his strategy "has depended from the beginning on creating an irresistible tidal wave of hysteria, adulation, media swoon and sense of messianic inevitability....He has not been running for president he has been running for Savior."(p.154) But now let us look under the Obama's surface veneer. As we pull back this veneer the first words to catch our eyes is Zbezniew Brzezinski and the Rockefeller Trilateral Commission, The Ford Foundation, Bilderberger Group, Skull and Bones, Rand Corporation, The Chicago Council of Foreign Relations and the Chicago School of economics. To this partial list of the corporate ruling elite, we can also add Obama's military advisor the war criminal General Merrill McPeak and then to seal the deal of corporate military control we now newly have General Colin Powell jumping on the Obama bandwagon. Not forgetting the pro-Obama Wall St. financiers, we have the real nature of Obama and what we can expect once he is in office. Professor Tarpley's book is a chilling account of events today as he has put them together in their logical order,
showing Obama to be the "ventriloqist's, Zbezniew Brzezinski's dummy" which on examination could be identified as a "Manchurian Candidate".
When Obama first ran for president I was a bit excited. Being a libertarian I hoped he would actually end the disastrous war in Iraq but when I did some sniffing around and research I found out it was all talk. Something troubled me, I didn't like the almost brainwashed mentality of his supporters, nor did I like his plans for a Stassi like agency in the US, coupled with his dealings with a noted fascist who worked for the Carter White House and he started to come off as a phony. I had no way to corroborate my feelings with the facts, until I came across this book. It blew my mind and my eyes wide open, what I suspected was true. Look up any of this stuff, it is backed up. Knowing Obama's sycophantic followers who would and are following him of a cliff, I'd say most of the negative reviews are from them. Don't underestimate Obamabots, there is droves of them and it is hard for them to see truth, they just stick their head right back into the propaganda sand. I know I used to be in their camp but unlike them, I have a mind of my own and if I have doubts I always look into them. Obama is just another one of their tools, the same people who are behind the Bush administration are the same ones behind the "Savior" and the "Last Hope". People please wake up, and open your eyes. You Obamabots shut off your programming and give this book a try, and leave your mind open.
I couldn't put it down. I learned alot. I had questions about a lot of things and independently did my own fact checking. and it all checked out. His conclusions seemed a bit out there, but the more you read and think about it and check it out, the more it seems to be spot on. Definitely worth the time and money.
