History silently records, one by one, the every-so-often, blood-letting despots and the palace revolts that change countless human lives for the worse down the ages.
Blood curdling screams of the people despots massacre on their way to power remain indelible on human memory even centuries after the palace revolts.
Often part of someone else’s chessboard, despots move in darkness by stealth.
Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi seized power in a bloodless military coup from King Idris in 1969 and served as the country’s head of state until 1977, when he stepped down from his official executive role as Chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council of Libya and claimed subsequently to be merely a symbolic figurehead. He styled himself as “Leader of the Revolution”; as recently as 2008, a meeting of traditional African leaders bestowed on him the title “King of Kings.”
The cursed name if Idi Amin Dada still draws shudders from just memory of his reign of terror. Amin was the military dictator and third President of Uganda a long and tortuous eight years from 1971 to 1979. This despot could lay claim to a past that saw him joining the British colonial regiment, the King’s African Rifles back in 1946. Eventually he held the rank of Major General in the post-colonial Ugandan Army, and became its Commander before seizing power in the military coup of January 1971, deposing Milton Obote. He later promoted himself to Field Marshal while he was the head of state. Interesting to remember that while serving in the British Regiment, Amin toured Kenya.
Amin’s rule was characterized by gross human rights abuse, political repression, ethnic persecution, extrajudicial killings, nepotism, corruption, and gross economic mismanagement. The number of people killed because of his regime is estimated by international observers and human rights groups to range from 100,000 to 500,000. (Wikipedia)
All despots and dictators create auras in which they star as heroic saviors of repressed peoples. Horror show Papa “Doc” Duvalier first won public acclaim in fighting diseases, earning him the nickname “Papa Doc.” He opposed a military coup d’etat in 1950, and was elected president in 1957 on a populist and black nationalist platform. His rule, based on a purged military, a rural militia and the use of a personality cult and voodoo, resulted in the murder of an estimated 30,000 Haitians and an ensuing “brain drain” from which the country has still not recovered.
The first thing despots who seize the country’s crown do after they are inside the palace is root out the constitution or structure of the nations of which they gain control.
The political elites who worked behind the scenes to take over the United States of America in 2008, didn’t have to kick the White House doors in. They merely had to wait for, and be ready for, the right time.
They debuted behind a new creation accorded rock-star status by celebrities and media.
Barrack Hussein Obama was not born, as he once joked, in a manger. Obama wasn’t as much born as he was created and perfected on paper by global elitists lusting for guaranteed, long-term power.
Moved like a piece of marble on a chessboard, their picture perfect candidate entered public life as a senator, where he skirted the edges of power getting ready for the big move to the White House.
Obama and his handlers didn’t need a military junta to pull it off, unlike all the despots before him, he didn’t have to gain control of the media, he came into being already controlling the media.
Insider Valerie Jarrett, who has the strongest clutch on Obama’s puppet strings, had been grooming him long before he was to become America’s 44th president.
The masses keep asking how a man with no proven birth certificate, a bogus social security number, and missing records could advance uninterrupted to the highest office of the land.
It was easy as a walk in the park.
Obama, like Gaddafi, Imin, Papa Doc and all other despots who preceded him, already controlled the news emerged, in the era of the Internet, with powerful friends from Google, Apple and Facebook.
Obama’s Communications Director David Axelrod runs a flourishing company that excels in the field of astroturf. Creative minds like Steven Spielberg are the props of his reelection campaign.
Once the ‘grassroots’ had been tapped out for the $1 billion Obama claims to need for his reelection, international celebrities like film star George Clooney could easily raise him $15 million in now Socialist-controlled France.
It wasn’t his intelligence or talent that drew the power-hungry elite into the Obama tent. In their case, anyone would do, but Obama’s blind hatred of the USA offered them lots to work with.
This is how they did it: They needed a silver-tongued black orator. Obama is half black and half white, but comes off as having no white side.
Obama’s the perfect paper president of the global elite because any and all complaints about his hypocrisy bring on the easy charge of “racisim!”
Aside from the propaganda created by the world’s most creative minds (Spielberg). Their wind-up doll comes complete with haughty arrogant expressions.
This works like a charm for Obama’s groomers as it affords lots of room for “Obama the Tormentor.”
Feeling depressed, frustrated and angry works for them as it keeps the masses on edge at a time when they need to do their fanciest footwork. But wind-up doll presidents fashioned from paper as Manchurian candidates who have vulnerable gaps in their personality can be downright dangerous during a time frame when the mission of One World Government is not complete.
When they drew Obama on paper they were so crazed by power lust, they never noticed that their candidate was also lazy, narcissistic and dull as proverbial dish water when unattached from a Teleprompter.
With all of their big plans for Fundamental Transformation of America, including in-house media, social network, Hollywood and Astroturf control, they are both outnumbered and out-passioned by the masses, who will fight to the death for their children and grandchildren.
