More About the Author

The humanist contemporary political philosopher Webster Griffin Tarpley is our most incisive critic of Anglo-American hegemony. As an activist historian he is best known for his George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992), a masterpiece of research which is still must reading. He is a 9/11 Truth Scholar and activist; AB Princeton 1966, summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa; Fulbright Scholar at University of Turin, Italy; and MA in humanities from Skidmore College.

He is fluent in Italian, German, French, Latin and Russian. A decades-long expert on international terrorism, his 1978 study for the Italian parliament "Chi ha ucciso Aldo Moro?" (Who Killed Aldo Moro?) broke open the ownership of the "Red Brigades" by NATO's clandestine "stay-behind"" networks.

Barack Obama, the unauthorized Biography -
This book is a must read for the world. I caution all readers that first one should not draw conclusions about a person based upon what another has concluded, but take the content of the book to understand just what exactly is happening to the human society and existence in the Global Economy. This book if read and comprehended will give illumination to the reality we must now face and understanding how and why it is happening. Caution number two, do not read this book for reasons of racial diversions. Read this book to understand how our nation's leaders are selected and how they receive financial backing to put into operation the edicts of the elite.
This book is entirely accurate when it says that we have just exchanged one megalomaniac for another. The difference is extreme in population manipulation, but such extremes are necessary and required by the elite to conduct their operations. It is how the elite control and manipulate their power, influence, and control over world resources.
A very frightening part of this book is that it was written before Barack Obama took office. Now as President of the United States the edicts and principles of the elite to keep control are effectively being systematically put in place. It is precisely as they ordained. George W. Bush was a puppet and their ideology was secured. Barack Obama is a puppet and the elite ideology is now being activated. The motto of the elite is to Divide and Conquer. This motto is and will be the greatest weapon of any power control. Consider the division between conservative and liberal. There is the division of Democrat and Republican. Once again is the division between races.

Format: Paperback
Judging a book by its cover might be a good start in this review of Webster G. Tarpley's book Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography. The fine cartoon by Tarpley & Azar is no mere metaphor, for it correctly depicts the fact that the `chosen one', Obama, has successfully destroyed the essence of the Democratic Party towards the people of this country as exemplified by the mission of FDR and the New Deal towards `The Forgotten Man". Yes the Democratic donkey has collapsed under the weight of the egotistical puppet Obama and his entourage of Foundation funded terrorists, racists, politically connected crooks, diabolical warmongers, corrupted Democratic Party officials and ultimately the Wall Street swindlers, all who must be examined in context of the present world crisis in order to understand who Obama really is.

Written in an accessible and compelling style, Tarpley has written a unique book that transcends the nihilistic impotence of the left and the reactionary myopia of the right, by reviving a form of historical analysis informed by an all but lost tradition of the United States of America: our historical mission to fight the specter of oligarchy's twin evils, the tyranny of the one, and the tyranny of the many, mob rule. Obama, as will be discovered, combines the worst of both into a particularly insidious combination that is duping the masses with slogans and politically correct identifications as he dangerously divides and polarizes the people of America for his masters.

As the world financial system disintegrates, there is a reason why Barack Obama has been chosen and funded by Wall Street, Soros, and others of the international financial elite.

Format: Paperback
Without a doubt, this is the best political biography I have read since `George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography.'
The material is voluminous and damning.
I particularly liked the information on the large foundations (Ford, et al) that are the root cause of much of the current strife in America.
Tarpley hammers away at Wall St. and these related foundations, whose job it is to ensure that working people continue to fight one another in the old Roman tradition of divide-and-conquer, rather than focusing on the financial oligarchs who play them like the proverbial fiddle.
From the beginning, Barack Obama and his wife have been beholden to these very foundations (as was his mother) for their livelihood.
And then there is the Faustian presence of Barack's mentor from Columbia, Zbignew Brezinski. One has to wonder how far the war hawk will nudge Obama into more foreign intrigues in the New Year.
Also troubling, is the malign presence of Rothschild golem George Soros, who appears to have underwritten much of the contributions of moveon.org. Time will tell how Soros intends to call in his marker with the new President....
Buy this book as an antidote to the plethora of hagiographies presently choking the bookstalls.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book thinking it would provide some explanation why Obama has repeatedly sold out the progressives who worked their butts off to get him elected - with his trillion dollar giveaways to Wall Street banksters; his refusal to restore habeas corpus and other constitutional rights; and his failure to end the massively unpopular wars in Afghanistant and Iraq, to close Guantanamo, to end CIA rendition, to support genuine (single payer) health reform, to promote a stimulus package to help the unemployed and people losing their homes - I could go on and on. Imagine my astonishment when I discovered the book was published in November 2008 - and was actually a prediction of what we could expect from our current President.

While some aspects of the book are purely speculative - namely those related to Obama's psychological make-up - Tarpley raises other, well documented concerns that should be getting more public attention. First he examines closely the individuals and corporate interests that backed Obama's run for Senate and later for the president. Eighteen months into George W. Bush's presidency, the public had a pretty clear idea of the corporate interests backing him - with Halliburton and other oil companies, Kellogg Brown and Root, Blackwater and other defense contractors at the head of the list. The mainstream media has led us to believe that Obama won the election based on millions of $5 Internet donations. This simply isn't true. Like Bush, Obama has financial backers who have been grooming him for some time for the presidency - and he clearly champions bills and policies that promote their interests.
