Response to Juan Cole's 'King's Anti-Imperialism and the Challenge for Obama'


January 19, 2009.

This is Project Humanbeingsfirst's response to Prof. Juan Cole's article “King's Anti-Imperialism and the Challenge for Obama

January 19, 2009 at 10:00 PM PST

As a eulogy to Dr. MLK on his anniversary, this article is outstanding. As an analysis of Mr. Obama and his future presidency, this article leaves much room for careful analysis lest it be deemed pandering to the 'change' mantra propaganda for which over $2 Billion was purportedly spent by the Obama election campaign.

I wouldn’t put any stock in these statements as evidence of "anticolonialism":

Obama’s plan to order the beginning of a withdrawal from Iraq on day one of his administration is consistent with the anticolonialism of the King tradition and of Obama’s own autobiography.”

An alternate perspective, with evidence of who backs Mr. Obama and why they are more dangerous than Mr. Bush (as deadly and monumentally criminal that his presidency has been for the millions of victims), may be gleaned in Obama’s slightly more forensically accurate Unauthorized Biography by Webster Tarpley (a bit more insightful than the auto version). An earlier release of the book can be downloaded from the web:

Here is a two part interview with Mr. Tarpley:

And these are some of the Project Humanbeingsfirst assessments of Mr. Obama:

Based on studying who backs Obama, and who, i.e., which financial oligarchs in turn back the ‘Col. Mandell House’ of Obama’s Presidency, Mr. Obama’s fronting in the White House is intended to take us, the world, a step even closer to endgame by creating massive havoc in Central Asia, with Russia, India-Pakistan, Iran, and the entire “global zone of percolating violence”. Those who don’t read latter day ‘Mein Kampfs’, are destined to become canon fodder.

By now, every one on the planet must recognize where the afore-quoted statement originates. If not, perhaps it is time to visit a library and pick up 'the Grand Chessboard'.

As they say, proof of the pudding is in its eating. We shall soon see how "anti colonialist" Mr. Obama really is when under the one-world government (see ), many of us end up in the FEMA concentration camps for disagreeing to live in bondage to a new system that is systematically being ushered in amidst all this confusion and hoopla. Just as was predicted in 1974 by CFR author in “The Hard Road To World Order”

In short, the ‘house of world order’ will have to be built from the bottom up, rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.”

And to see the kind of 'change' to actually expect – just a quick look at Mr. Obama's proposed cabinet and their histories is sufficient evidence of the nature of 'change' being ushered in. At least a 100 analysis have been published on it worldwide – this one I saw today “THE OBAMA DREAM TEAM A FUTURE NIGHTMARE”:

And to understand what his presidency might actually entail, a read of Col. Mandell House's "Administrator Dru" (Philip Dru: Administrator, A Story of Tomorrow 1920-1935) might be more useful than Obama's own pre-election autobiography. His Presidency might make many, only ex post facto of course, reminisce of Woodrow Wilson who gifted to the United States the legacies that it is still suffering from 90 years later (see his own confessions, ex post facto of course, in his memoirs 'The New Freedom – A Call For the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People', especially Chapter 8: Monopoly, or Opportunity?).

But remember, you read it here first – on Juan Cole's Informed website.

In the meantime – please enjoy this Obama "anticolonialist" song and dream of the "change" (lyrics below):

We are gonna spread happiness,

we are gonna spread freeeeedom,

Obama's gonna change it,

Obama's gonna leeeeead em,

we're gonna change it,

and re-arrange it,

we are gonna change the world!”

Thank you,

Zahir Ebrahim


P.S. I pray that all I have commented above, and all the analysis that is on my website, which you won't find on Informed Comment, turns out to be inaccurate and wrong, or to be shown to be wrong. That'd be great! Please begin at the Monetary Reform Bibliography:

The author, an ordinary researcher and writer on contemporary geopolitics, a minor justice activist, grew up in Pakistan, studied EECS at MIT, engineered for a while in high-tech Silicon Valley (patents here), and retired early to pursue other responsible interests.
