Editorial Reviews

Review

"An important concept in this critique is the CIA Color Revolution/People Power coups that have been staged in Ukraine, Serbia, Georgia and Belarus. This book maintains that the Obama candidacy is just such a coup. As outrageous as that sounds, the book makes an excellent case." -- Phillip M. Rose "Amazon.com"

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

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.
