There are only two people, I believe, who qualify as possible candidates for choreographing the massive coup attempt currently taking place before our eyes. Both have spoken of their contempt ––if not searing hatred––for America, and both have tried mightily over decades to bring down our country. And, most importantly, both have the brains and power and track records to place them in frontrunner contention.
The first is Bill Ayers, now 76 and a retired professor of education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Ayers gained early fame when he founded the Weather Underground, a self-described communist revolutionary group that sought to overthrow America, and conducted a campaign of bombing public buildings (including police stations, the U.S. Capitol, and the Pentagon, et al) during the 1960s and 1970s.
In an early eighties interview, Ayers remembered his reaction upon learning that because of government overreach he would not be prosecuted for a Weather Underground bombing spree that killed a policeman. “Guilty as hell, free as a bird – America is a great country,” he exulted.
After that, he joined his version of mainstream society as a professor but was far from through with far-left politics.
In 1995, when Barack Obama was running for state senator in Illinois, Ayers held a fundraiser in his living room – while both insisted that they only knew each other casually. In fact, their cozy relationship had been public knowledge in Chicago for years.
And when prolific journalist and author Jack Cashill wrote Deconstructing Obama – based on his exquisite forensic analysis of Ayers’ former writings – he made an airtight case that it was Ayers who actually wrote Obama’s two bestsellers: Dreams of My Father and The Audacity of Hope.
According to blogger Bernie Quigley, Obama and Bill Ayers were “together from the beginning” [of Obama’s political career]. When Obama met with Ayers at “the salon gatherings of Chicago’s Beautiful People,” he added, “it was the kickoff of a political career which would lead, potentially, in little over a decade, from the house of the most notorious of the violent Amerika-hating revolutionaries from the ’60s still alive, Bill Ayers and [his wife and fellow terrorist] Bernadine Dohrn, to the White House.”
In fact, Quigley writes, between 1995 and 1999, Obama led the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) that Ayers founded––“a program that called for infusing students and their parents with a radical political commitment, and which downplayed achievement tests in favor of activism.’
So, what is Bill Ayers doing now? For one thing, lamenting on his blog the deaths of his fellow terrorists. And last year, upon observing the violence and destruction wrought by Antifa and Black Lives Matter in Portland and Kenosha, he remarked: “Am I the only one, or do you feel eerily that we’re living in Kansas, 1859 – [when Kansans engaged in a violent guerrilla war between pro-slavery and anti-slavery forces which contributed to the coming Civil War] – and that tensions are boiling over, but only years later will people say, ‘Yes, the Civil War began there and then?’”
Clearly not through with politics, is Ayers now whispering into the ears of Joe Biden’s handlers exactly what to do to bring down America? He certainly seems a viable candidate to me.
The second––and most likely––candidate is George Soros, now 91, the still active and vital hedge-fund billionaire whose brilliance is undisputed, whose political involvement and effectiveness in world affairs is second to none, who is considered both indispensable and formidable to his fans and terrifying to his adversaries, and whose financial resources are unlimited.
In 2018, the editors at David Horowitz’s Discover the Networks wrote an exhaustive, riveting, must-read study of Soros, entitled: Who is George Soros and Why He Hates America. I urge everyone to read this article because it demonstrates the passion, the ideology, and – as the crime shows emphasize, the means, motives, and opportunity – that George Soros has had to pour his heart and soul and massive amounts of money into transforming America from a Democratic Republic into the ideals of his Open Society Foundations, founded in 1993. Those ideals are:
- “The diminution of American power.
- The subjugation of American sovereignty in favor of global governance.
- The implementation of redistributive economic policies—both within the U.S. and across national borders.”
The breadth, depth – the sheer magnitude – of what Soros has accomplished, worldwide, since he got deeply involved in politics in the mid-1980s, is breathtaking. “My spending rose from $3 million in 1987 to more than $300 million a year by 1992,” he said.
Imagine what it is today!
The above-cited article called Soros “one of the most politically powerful individuals on earth. Since the mid-1980s, he has used his immense influence to help reconfigure the political landscapes of several countries around the world—in some cases playing a key role in toppling regimes that had held the reins of government for years, even decades.” Not to omit that, famously, Soros broke the bank of England, raking in more than a billion bucks in the deal.
Vis à vis the United States, a strong case can be made for the claim “that Soros today affects American politics and culture more profoundly than any other living person.”
As of 2018, the OSF’s total assets exceeded $1.9 billion. Each year, the Foundations award scores of millions of dollars in grants to over 206 U.S. organizations, which, among other things:
- Depict America as a nation whose enduring racism must be counterbalanced by racial and ethnic preferences in favor of nonwhites,
- Disparage capitalism while promoting a dramatic expansion of social-welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes,
- Promote open borders, mass immigration, a watering down of current immigration laws, increased rights, and benefits for illegal aliens, and ultimately amnesty,
- Assert that virtually all American military actions are unwarranted and immoral,
- Exhort the U.S. and Israel to negotiate with, and to make concessions to, Arab terrorist groups and regimes that have pledged to destroy America and Israel alike,
- On and on and on.
AN OVERARCHING VISION
Among the central political ideas that unite Democrats––and certainly energize whoever is running the show––is the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Begun in 1966 and flourishing to this day, the founders of this plan, both from Columbia University, loathed America and insisted that capitalism could be collapsed by overloading the government with financial demands that could never be met.
Or as writer Jeff M. Lewis explains in “They Intend to Destroy America,” the plan is to “overload the American public welfare system and create a crisis that will bankrupt the nation, leaving no choice but to adopt a socialist/communist system of government.“
Cloward and Piven also formed voter-fraud schemes like Project Vote, ACORN, etc., still extant only with different names. And surprise, surprise––ACORN’s lawyer was none other than Barack Obama. Birds of a feather, and all that.
Their vision is exactly what we are witnessing today with the mad rush of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring over our southern borders and being secretly ferreted to American cities, all with the promise of free everything––food, housing, medical care, education, even drivers’ licenses! And all with the implicit directive to Vote Democrat!
At the same time, we have the discredited “expert” on all things coronavirus, Dr. Anthony Fauci, insisting on what Senator Ron Johnson (R-MN) calls the “totalitarian biomedical security state of forced vaccination.”
We also have:
- Draconian mandates in cities like New York and other blue states that prevent people from entering restaurants, theaters, gyms, et al, without proof of having had a Covid jab,
- Dire threats that all benefits to Marines (and other military, including Navy SEALS, will be revoked if they decline the Covid jabs.
- Actual life-threatening shortages of nurses, doctors, and other hospital personnel––as well as first responders––who refuse the experimental vaccine.
- Threats to police forces that guarantee a horrific rise in crime.
- Mandatory Covid jabs for travelers on all domestic airline flights in the U.S., already enacted by several major U.S. airlines.
- And here’s the kicker: NO requirements for illegal immigrants to get tested or receive the vaccine!
- Then there are the parents who revile the toxic, far-left, so-called “woke” propaganda being crammed down their children’s throats being labeled “domestic terrorists”––the idea of Attorney General Merrick Garland, who forgot to mention that his son-in-law makes millions selling those toxic materials.
A Cloward-Piven dream come true! Unsustainable debt, thousands more American streets becoming tent cities of the homeless, sick, hungry, addicted; rising unemployment, a compromised healthcare system, a drastically weakened military, an immobilized populace, a reviled education system, and that is the shortlist.
Ruth S. King––writer, editor, and international blogger––sees not only a coup, but an authentic insurrection: “When the established government does not recognize dissidents and calls them “domestic terrorists” and limits their speech, controls the media, alters the language, denies legitimate history, trashes tradition and culture, erases national borders, blurs the role of the military, destroys the canons of education, science and medicine, and uses the powers of government to spy on its citizens–that is an insurrection.”
And who is orchestrating this last-gasp attempt of the Left? Isn’t it obvious?
