Zbigniew Brzezinski to be the real power behind an Obama throne
Brzezinski’s brand of anti-Russian, anti-Muslim geopolitics
FROM BELOVED JEN: Thank you, beloved Rasa. I love these new videos. I am watching another one now and urge you to check it out, please. A presidential candidate I believe you could support.
Enjoying the support of 313 of the 541 Delegate votes cast, Saturday, July 12th, 2008, Cynthia McKinney won the Green Party nomination in the first round of balloting at the Green Party's Chicago Convention.
In her thirty-five minute acceptance speech, broadcast on CSPAN, she told those assembled:
But we make history today only because we must. In 2008, after two stolen Presidential elections and eight years of George W. Bush, and at least two years of Democratic Party complicity, the racket is about war crimes, torture, crimes against the peace; the racket is about crimes against the Constitution, crimes against the American people, and crimes against the global community. The racket is even about values that we thought were long settled as reasonable to pursue, like liberty and justice, and economic opportunity, for all. Yes, Sojourner, there's a lot out of kilter now, but these two women, Rosa and me, joined by all the men and women in this room, are going to do our best to turn this country right side up again.. . .
We will never get a United States that is reflective of different values if we continue to do the same thing. Those who delivered us into this mess cannot be trusted to get us out of it.
That's why I signed up to do something I've never done before so I can have something I've never had before: My country, made in the likeness of the values of the Green Party.. . .
And that's why I know we need an opposition party in this country. With over 200 elected officials already, the Green Party can become this country's premier opposition Party. One thing is clear, Democratic and Republican values are not Green Party values. And honestly, I believe, Green Party values are the values held by the majority in this country. And through our vigorous Power to the People campaign, we will proclaim our presence to every nook and cranny of this country. We are needed now, more than ever . .

FROM BELOVED MERCURIUS:
Zbigniew Brzezinski to be the real power behind an Obama throne
By Eric Walberg

As the United States election race enters the final stretch, Barack Obama as the candidate promising change is revealing his true colours, much to the despair of anyone actually expecting any change.
His recent call to declare Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel, his denial of Palestinans’ right of return, and his support for a Bantustan Palestinian “state” which poses no threat to Israel show how completely he has caved in to the Zionist establishment on that issue.
As President George W Bush calls for early reductions in combat troops in Iraq, Obama’s position on Iraq -- a vow to bring troops home within 16 months, excepting a “residual force” -- looks less and less like a defining moment in his foreign policy. Whatever happens to troop levels, there is no explicit talk of overriding the plans for 14 permanent bases.
Obama is toeing the line in Afghanistan, too. As NATO casualties continue to mount, surpassing monthly Iraqi casualities as of June this year, he is proposing -- now seconded by McCain -- that the United States shift up to 15,000 more troops there from Iraq. Just prior to his trip to Afghanistan, he wrote in a New York Times Op Ed, “We need more troops, more helicopters, better intelligence-gathering and more nonmilitary assistance to accomplish the mission there.” Please, will someone show me the silver lining in an Obama victory in November?
But then none of the above should come as any surprise to those familiar with his chief promoter and foreign policy adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who, along with current (and likely future) Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, has already entered history as helping “suck the Soviets into a Vietnamese quagmire.” These are the words of President Jimmy Carter’s Under-Secretary of Defense Walter Slocumbe in March 1979, eight months before the Soviets were successfully “sucked in,” when Gates was CIA chief. The changing of the guard, come November, will change nothing. US foreign policy has a logic which transcends who sleeps in the White House.
What’s especially ghoulish about all this is that there are four Brzezinski offspring who are all onboard the Obama wagon: Mark (director of Russian and Eurasian Affairs at the National Security Council under President Bill Clinton, and one of the prime movers of the 2004 color revolution in Ukraine); Ian (currently the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and NATO affairs and a backer of Kosovan independence, NATO expansion into Ukraine and Georgia and US ABM missiles in Poland); Mika, political commentator on MSNBC whose interview with Michele Obama contributed to the general media Obamamia; and finally Matthew, a friend of Ilyas Akhmadov, “foreign minister” and US envoy of the Chechen opposition.
Brzezinski’s brand of anti-Russian, anti-Muslim geopolitics will dominate a future Obama administration. In Second Chance: Three Presidents and the Crisis of American Superpower, published last year, he lays out his New World Order agenda without so much as a blush. Apparently, there is a global political awakening going on, the goal of which is “dignity.” Not economic development, not the alleviation of poverty, not national sovereignty against the IMF and World Bank. Just plain old dignity, though Zbig’s brand of dignity is the kind attained through secession, Balkanisation, and the creation of weak statelets for each ethnic minority subservient to the US. Think: Kosovo and -- if he has his way -- Chechenia. Neo-Wilsonian demagogy in the service not of peace but of US world domination, encirclement of Russia and control of the Arab world.
Zbig said in endorsing Obama: “What makes Obama attractive to me is that he understands that we live in a very different world where we have to relate to a variety of cultures and peoples.” Obama’s alleged global approach and trans-ethnic, trans-racial allure are right out of Zbig’s university textbook, or rather Second Chance, which will be the manual for the Obama campaign and presidency.
Obama is literally a second chance for Brzezinski: having destroyed the Soviet Union and shattered the Warsaw Pact, he now wants to dismember the Russian Federation itself and put the finishing touches on Afghanistan as an impregnable US military base against China, Russia . . . the list is endless. Perhaps Zbig is dreaming of restoring Greater Poland circa 1600 -- from the Black Sea to the Baltic, all controlled by petty szlachta aristocrats like . . . the Brzezinskis?
The Economist blog put it best: “A new brain for Barack Obama! It’s 78 years old [Ed. note: it’s 80 years old] and it still works perfectly. It belongs to Zbigniew Brzezinski, the peppery ex-national security adviser to Jimmy Carter.”
The messianic idealism of the Obama campaign has not been seen since the days of another Brzezinski creation -- Jimmy Carter, who made him national security adviser with disastrous results. Brzezinski’s anti-Russian obsession back in 1976 prompted him to foment the rise of Islamic fundamentalism, which he touted as the greatest single bulwark against Soviet communism. Webster G. Tarpley argues that Brzezinski was even a prime behind-the-scenes mover in the overthrow of the Shah of Iran and installing Ayatollah Khomeini in power in Tehran. Brzezinski cared less about the Middle East and its oil than he did about the need for a centre from which Islamic fundamentalism of the most retrograde type could penetrate the soft southern underbelly of the USSR. For Brzezinski, the space between the southern frontier of the Soviet and the Indian Ocean littoral became an “arc of crisis,” and we have his handiwork to thank for the horrors taking place there to this day.
The 1980 Carter Doctrine -- that the US was determined to dominate the Persian Gulf -- is at the root of the first Gulf War, of the present Iraq war, and of the possible war on Iran. Brzezinski’s grandiose schemes of world transformation caused a renewal of the Cold War and gave birth to Al-Qaeda, and without Soviet restraint the results could easily have been far more tragic than they turned out to be. By 1980, disillusionment with Carter led to the nightmare of the Reagan regime. But this was of little concern to Brzezinski -- a mere blip on his radar screen.
In 2008, we have an obscure Illinois senator, a neophyte with no legislative achievements to speak of, but with a raft of utopian promises, including solving the race problem once and for all. Recession, unemployment and an alarming rise in poverty are of no consequence; a golden age is at hand thanks to his magnetic personality. Since he knows nothing of foreign policy, these matters will be competently managed by the Brzezinski cabal.
But there seems to be one slight hitch. Despite Obama’s slavish pro-Israeli genuflections of late, he is still not trusted by the Jewish lobby. Quite possibly because they know who the power behind the throne-to-be is, and they can’t stomach him, nor he them. Addressing the AIPAC crew in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, he said, “They operate not by arguing but by slandering, vilifying, demonising. They very promptly wheel out anti-Semitism. There is an element of paranoia in this inclination to view any serious attempt at a compromised peace as somehow directed against Israel.”
But then Brzezinski was a key player in Carter’s 1978 Camp David Accords, much loathed by the Zionists as giving up Sinai in exchange for a cold peace with Egypt. Brzezinski is definitely not a hardcore Zionist, though he’s happy to allow the destruction of Palestine. Perhaps he is, under his suave exterior, still the quintessential Polish anti-Semite, with a vision of the New World Order without Israel at the centre.
If he can keep up the momentum, however, he may be able to outflank the Zionists in Washington and bringing his horse first past the finish line. They are on the defensive these days, what with spy trials, even J Street Project, a Jewish lobby group that -- gasp -- dares to criticise Israel. Is this, then, the silver lining in an Obama victory?

Dear Rasa, I am intrigued by your experience. I will buy your book soon.
Stigmata is a gift, that I do understand. Even if I don't consider myself a Catholic, or even solely a Christian.
My beliefs are all encompassing. I believe, that just as God created different flowers to bloom in different climates, so too did he help create different spiritual paths for different cultures. All pointing in the same direction.
I once had an experience when I believed the Mother Mary came to visit me. She told me to make my own illustrated version of the Rosary. Which I did. And my room became filled with the scent of roses.
Years later, after being diagnosed with PTSD, I was told it was a psychotic episode because my abuse took place at St. Mary's Church. It was my minds way of making peace with Mary.
Still others believe she actually came to me. Sometimes I believe the true answer is both.
I am attaching a video of Richard Souther's interruption of Hildegard von Bingen's "Kyrie" which is Greek for Oh Lord. As I am sure you know, the Divine God in a woman like Hildegard could not be denied. Not even by the Catholic Church in the 12th Century.
THE BOOK IS FREE ON MY SITE AN E BOOK
I WILL STUDY YOUR LETTER WHEN I HAVE TIME...YOUR VISION WAS AUTHENTIC THE SMELL IS A SURE SIGN...DO NOT LISTEN TO SECULARS...BLIND PEOPLE DO NOT BELIEVE IN THINGS SIGHTED PEOPLE CAN SEE

ABOUT OTIS REDDING
I HAVE BEEN DANCING TO THE MUSIC OF OTIS REDDING AS OF LATE—HE WAS SOMEONE I MET IN 1966—HE APPEARED TO ME THE DAY AFTER MY BIRTHDAY AND BECAUSE OF THE ENERGY GOING FROM ME TO HIM AND BACK HE SAID I AM NOW ‘HIS WOMAN’ AND HE WILL KEEP ME COMPANY UNTIL I FIND THE MAN DESTINED TO BE WITH ME FOR MANY YEARS – THIS MAN IS ONE WHO WILL BE PERSONALLY GREAT AS WELL AS HELP WITH MY WORK, BUT I WILL NOT MEET HIM FOR A YHEAR. OTIS IS ADVISING ME IN PERSONAL MATTERS OF SEX AND ROMANCE AS I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR A BOYFRIEND TO END MY 30 YEARS OF CELIBACY—HE IS PROVIDING ME WITH DAY TO DAY COMPANIONSHIP AND CONSOLATION JUST AS A FLESH AND BLOOD MAN WOULD (ONLY BETTER IN SOME WAYS AS FLESH AND BLOOD MEN HAVE MANY DISTRACTIONS AND DO NOT HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE AS A MAN WHO IS LOOKING AT GOD FACE TO FACE) AND JUST AS OF YESTERDAY IT LOOKS LIKE I SNAGGED A MALE THAT TURNS ME ON—WITH OTIS’ HELP.
THE MAN I LIKE IS 28 YEARS OLD – BIRACIAL – AND YESTERDAY IT APPEARS I TURN HIM ON AS MUCH AS HE DOES ME, SO IT WILL PROGRESS. I ASKED HIM IF HE LIVED WITH SOMEONE OR WAS MARRIED, AND HE SAID NO. FOR A WOMAN WHO HAS NOT HAD SEX IN 30 YEARS I MUST SAY THAT I AM AN EXPERT IN SEDUCTION, PERHAPS I AM JUST DAMN SMART
YESTERDAY AS I HEADED FOR THE GYM OTIS TOLD ME A MAN WOULD BE ATTRACTED TO ME, SO I FIGURED IT WAS THE JANITOR – SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN – AS I KNEW HE WAS WORKING THAT NIGHT AND HE SEEMED INTERESTED WHEN WE MET. SO I WAS DAUNTED WHEN I APPROACHED HIM, HE GAVE ME A COOL WELCOME.
AS I WENT BACK TO THE TRAINING I FELT DEPRESSED, BUT WITH FAITH I BELIEVED OTIS. HE TOLD ME SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN, SO I FIGURED IF THE JANITOR DIDN’T WANT ME, I WOULD MAKE MY ROUNDS TO OTHER PLACES THAT WERE OPEN AT NIGHT, LIKE DENNY’S AND WALLMART, AND MAYBE A SEXY MAN WOULD APPROACH ME THERE.
AS I TRAINED OTIS TOLD ME NOT TO APPROACH THE JANITOR AGAIN, HE SAID,
‘LET HIM BE.’
THERE WERE A FEW WHITE MEN TRAINING, BUT AS USUAL, NONE OF THEM TALKS TO ME. ONE KEPT LOOKING AT ME FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE – HAVE SEEN HIM A FEW TIMES – BUT HE IS TOO SCARED TO APPROACH – AND HE DOES NOT APPEAL TO ME ALTHOUGH HE IS HANDSOME – SO I DID NOT SPEAK TO HIM. I AM ALSO PUNISHING HIM BECAUSE THE FIRST DAY I SAW HIM HE SMILED, I SMILED, BUT THEN HE NEVER APPROACHED ME AND I FELT HE WAS REJECTING ME, SO I AM ANGRY AND WILL NOT APPROACH HIM.
THE LAST TIME I WAS AT THE GYM THERE WERE A COUPLE SEXY GUYS. ONE IS A TALL GERMAN WITH BLONDE/BROWN HAIR MIX, BEAUTIFUL. THE BEST LOOKING ONE I EVER SAW AT THE GYM. I WENT OUT OF MY WAY TO FLIRT WITH HIM AND HE WAS FRIENDLY BUT PRETENDING HE HAD TO KEEP TRAINING AND COULD NOT TALK MUCH, BUT WAS CONSTANTLY SMILING AND I COULD FEEL THE VIBES WERE RECIPRICAL BUT SHY. I GAVE HIM MY PHOTO AND VOICEMAIL, WHICH HE SHOWED TO ANOTHER GUY—BUT HE DID NOT CALL. OTIS TOLD ME HE HAS A WOMAN, HE IS TAKEN.
BY NOW I GAVE UP ON THE JANITOR AS A HALF HOUR HAD GONE BY, HE KEPT CLEANING, MOPPING, AND AVOIDED ME. SO I FIGURED, FOR SOME REASON, HE JUST DOESN’T LIKE ME EVEN THOUGH WHEN WE MET I THOUGHT HE DID.
THEN HE STARTED MOPPING NEAR THE LEG PRESS WHERE I WAS TRAINING, AND LO AND BEHOLD, HE SPOKE, ASKING ME MY NAME. (YOU PROBABLY THINK THIS SOUNDS INSANE, BUT MEN IN THE GYM ENVIRONMENT ALMOST NEVER SPEAK TO ME OR ANY WOMAN, PEOPLE ARE VERY CLOSED UP IN GYMS, ALL PRETENDING THEY ARE TOTALLY IMMERSED IN THEIR TRAINING...MEN AND WOMEN BOTH...OBVIOUSLY, PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED IN WHAT THEY DO, BUT THEY LOOK SO COLD HEARTED.)
I HAVE LEARNED HOW TO BE FRIENDLY WITH THOSE I WANT TO BE FRIENDLY WITH. I ASK A SIMPLE QUESTION, AND IT WORKS WITH EVERYONE,
‘WHAT ARE YOU TRAINING FOR?’
SO ONE GUY LAST TIME SAID,
‘JUST FOR MYSELF, AND I PLAY SOCCER IN SCHOOL.’
ANOTHER GUY SAID,
‘I HAVE LOST 65 POUNDS DOING THIS.’
THE GERMAN GUY SAID, (BEST ANSWER)
‘FOR BEAUTY, AND TO DO THE THINGS I LIKE BETTER, LIKE SKIING.’
OH, YES, MY BEAUTY, YOU ARE IMPROVING, BUT I TOLD HIM,
‘YOU MUST TRAIN YOUR LEGS MORE.’
THAT IS A FAULT MANY MALES HAVE, THEY SACRIFICE THE LOWER BODY IN FAVOR OF THE UPPER WHICH IS SO MUCH MORE OBVIOUS, AND THEY TURN OUT UNBALANCED. NO MATTER WHAT I SAY, THEY DON’T LISTEN. WHAT DOES A WOMAN KNOW? HAHA. IF THEY ONLY KNEW, I AM THE PROGENITOR OF FEMALE BODY BUILDING. I STARTED WITH THE LIKES OF ARNOLD AND FRANK ZANE, WAS ON THE STAGE WITH ALL THE GUYS IN THE 70’S, SAW THE BEST, UNDERSTAND WHAT IT TAKES TO LOOK LIKE A CHAMP.
AFTER I MADE SOME MOVES ON THE JANITOR AGAIN (Wow I surprise myself at how sultry I get, too much practice on the keyboard here, I told him to go look at the Youtubes if it is alright for him to get a hard on, I asked him if I could put my picture in his pocket for him, haha, you know what else is in the pocket) WHO I SHALL CALL RON, HE WENT TO MY YOUTUBE AND DID GET A BIG ONE HE SAID. HE E MAILED ME. BUT SO FAR, IT SEEMS HE IS AFRAID TO GET STARTED, HE WANTS IT ON THE FANTASY LEVEL. MORE E MAILS FANTASIES? UGH. MY BODY AND HEART ACHE FOR A PHYSICAL TOUCH, AND ALTHOUGH HE SAYS HE HAS FANTASIES FOR AN OLDER WOMAN, HE ALSO HAS RESERVATIONS AS FAR AS THE USUAL STUFF –, NO FRATERNIZING WITH MEMBERS AT WORK , THEN FOR SOME REASON HE CANNOT TALK ON THE PHONE (PERHAPS HE DOES LIVE WITH SOMEONE) AND HE WANTS NO COMMITMENTS. THE ONLY ONE OF THOSE THREE THAT WILL BE ROUGH IF ONE WANTS A PHYSICAL MEETINGS, IS THE PHONE PART.
WE SHALL SEE WHAT HAPPENS, IT IS A BEGINNING. MEANWHILE, I HAVE A FEELING IT WILL WORK OUT. OTIS SAYS HE IS MY MAN . OTIS HAS BEEN RIGHT SO FAR ON ALL HE HAS SAID..
