Why is this Being Allowed to Happen?

One would think that once was enough.  One would think–hope, for God’s sake–that the world’s having come so close to having been ruled by a fascist killing machine would have been enough to teach those who are in a position to stop it from ever happening again to stop it from ever happening again.

Apparently not, however.

Look, I know that rhetoric is automatically ratcheted up dramatically once certain comparisons are made, but look around: the global political left–or, perhaps more appropriately, those who are more increasingly being referred to as the Global Elite–is seemingly once again determined to grasp and seize control of the economics and the political structure of the planet.

How else would anyone explain the evident axis relationship between those who are proponents of global communism and radical Islam?  The American people have certainly been awakened by this radicalized administration, but I’m not truly convinced that they are yet fully well-aware that we are currently living in the pages of future history books.  That’s understandable, for the simple reason that human beings by nature usually can’t see the significance of political events while they’re actually living inside those very times — “seeing the forest for the trees,” as the expression goes.  As with all things, time has a way of making things come into a sharper focus and seem much more objective and understandable.

A little more than 70 years ago, the global, economic left allied itself with the seeming strength of Nazism; now, with the game unchanged and the conditions right, only the preferred ally for these opportunistic lunatics has changed.  The larger picture is so obvious and staring us in the face that only those who desperately do not wish it to be true continue to deny it not only to others but more so to themselves.

In order to truly understand the historical period into which I believe we may now have been dragged, one must be very, very cognizant of history.  Reading into some depth is helpful, but having at least a working knowledge of the basics is of paramount importance.  Step back and look for the telltale signs: a fascist regime, hell-bent on exterminating the Jewish race, one that is continuing to increase its military profile and is intent on imposing its political doctrine on the world, in addition to its being funded by at least one major American corporation, General Electric.  And that’s what we have today in Iran and radical Islam.  These factors also came together 70 years ago, when some of the most powerful economic names–Rockefeller, Chase, Morgan, Ford–were to varying degrees financing the efforts of the Nazi regime.

Hey, as Al Capone might say, it’s just business.

Don’t believe it?  Go do the research that your college professors would never have wanted you to do.  You might even discover that Hitler had a Muslim wing of his SS as well.

Why is it, I wonder, that both the Nazis and the radical Islamists have in common a hatred of the Jewish people?  Could it be as simple as the Jewish people’s singular cultural strength, its willingness to do whatever it takes to protect its people, its culture, its history, and its traditions, and–most importantly–its historical and seemingly perpetual ability to influence global financial markets?

I don’t think it’s anything more complicated than that.  I really have a hard time believing that it has anything, in the truest sense, to do with pure ethnicity.  This is all an economic-and-power play on a global scale.  The global, elitist left wants complete control over global financial markets, and radical Islam wants to rule the world.  Death to the infidel, and all that.  I guess it’s good for them that they just so happen to be traveling in the same historical direction.

Those  in this country who’ve already sold their soul(s) by allying themselves with these psychopaths sure better hope for two things: that they win, and that there’s no afterlife.

The regular, everyday people in this country who’ve succumbed to this “liberal” agenda and now consequently seem to actually “believe” in it–since it’s been both so nicely packaged, taught, and sold to them through revisionist history and under the wrappings of “tolerance” and “peace” over the last half-century–are the ones about whom I’m most concerned.  They concern me for the reasons that (a) I truly hope that at some point basic common sense can be realized, as it pertains to the manner in which the individual rights and freedoms of people around the world are continuing to be violated with each passing day, and that (b) if they don’t disconnect themselves at some point, they will continue to present a major problem for us on our own shores.

All of what I’ve discussed presents context for the three important events that took place this past week, events that when taken together present a much larger, much more troubling picture.  By injecting himself into what was already becoming a heated religious, political, and cultural debate with regard to the proposed mosque at Ground Zero, Barack Obama breathed an almost white-hot life into the issue, one that most certainly will have political repercussions come November.  Of course, the real question that must be addressed with the allegedly “moderate” Imam heading up this entire project pertains to why this center of Islamic worship must be constructed at that spot, and no other.  There’s apparently not an overly-significant Muslim population in lower Manhattan, and the entire Cordoba Initiative has flatly refused after having been offered other state land elsewhere in New York by Governor Patterson.


The last of our military forces also purportedly pulled out of Iraq this week, putting what would appear to be an official end to Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Obviously, serious questions remain as to whether the purported pullout was real or mostly political stagecraft, and as to whether the fledgling democracy taking root in that country can withstand what are sure to be extremist forces challenging the new government; at the very least, however, I would think our leaving the region may only be a signal to those forces that another opportunity has presented itself.

Kind of like announcing the date of our withdrawal from Afghanistan.

But who would do something as stupid as that?

And, seemingly right on schedule, as our military departs its next door neighbor, Iran’s nuclear capability is brought online with Russia’s assistance.  As former U.S. Ambassador and overall foreign policy savant John Bolton pointed out repeatedly over the course of last week, Israel’s opportunity to strike would pass once the fuel rods were put into place.  Our administration has apparently convinced Israel that despite this threshold having been crossed–once again, in blatant defiance of worthless UN directives–Iran is still quite a way from having a functioning nuclear weapon.

Gee whiz.  Coming from this federal government, which doesn’t even know enough to immediately recognize a failed car bomb in Times Square or testicular pyrotechnics in the air over Detroit as terrorism, assurances about Iran’s nuclear capability sure make me feel wonderful.

After having brought his nuclear capability online, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad–that bastion of mental tranquility–even went a step further by announcing and demonstrating yet another weapon, one to which he affectionately refers as the “messenger of death.”  The Iranians now possess an unmanned bomber, one that considerably improves Iran’s ability to attack enemy facilities from a far greater distance; of course, the Iranians are only planning to utilize this new toy as a “defensive” weapon.

Sure — I believe that.  Just as I believe the alleged “more direct” peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians, set to begin in early September and to be held in Washington (no doubt so that Barack Obama can gently glide his hand over the principal figures at the meeting and help them to see the light) have any chance of being successful.  If you ask me–and this is just me–since these talks have historically never borne any real fruit, my tingling, superhero-like common sense is telling me that these talks are little more than a delaying tactic.  For what? I don’t even want to venture a guess.

Who knows?  Maybe a modern-day Neville Chamberlain will get it right this time.

Nevertheless, the main point that I’ve attempted to thrust home–successfully or unsuccessfully, you be the judge–is that we are living during a period in which we must take steps back and look at the whole picture, not merely the smaller facets on the gemstone.  Cobbling all these together, along with the looming prospect of mid-term elections here in the States, and I can’t help but wonder about the time between now and then.  American Thinker has an excellent article on this issue that I feel is a must-read for anyone concerned.  Breaking the will of the American people to resist has always been and remains the most stubborn of hurdles for the global leftists/elitists, and they’ve had a year-and-a-half to make as much destructive headway as possible in our Congress.  In that regard, I’d even venture to say that Barack Obama and his “Democratic” sycophants have done the greatest cause to America and conservatism this country has seen in the past 100 years.

With no one to stand in their way and no one to blame for their failures–not that that has stopped them in that respect–the Democrats, while managing to damage some of the fabric of American society, have been to a certain extent kept in check by the American people.  With nowhere left to go, their backs up against the wall, facing watershed losses and a largely constitutionally re-educated American populace in November, this cornered political animal may indeed become quite dangerous.

You don’t actually believe that they’re going to go quietly into the night, after investing nearly a century into their machinations, do you?


It took the world far too long to wake up to the dangers of socialism, communism, and Nazism some 70 years ago.  Let’s pray that  we have our guard up this time and are prepared for anything.

  2. Randy Wills says:

    Another good, thought-provoking, article, John. Thanks for your contribution to the body of current-events insight presented at AR.

    I do, however, suggest that more attribution for the hatred of Jews and Israel be given to the fact that, since the beginning of recorded history, they have been, and still are, God’s chosen people. It is for this reason the Jews have been singled out by Evil for destruction. It was from the Jewish race that we were given Jesus Christ, the arch-enemy of Satan and of all those who, in their hatred of the God of the Scriptures, would remove all remembrances of Him from the face of the earth. That effort to destroy the personal, physical, representation of the reality of the God of the Scriptures will continue until the Last Day. If anyone doubts the reality of the Scriptures, all they have to do is trace the history of the Jews, including present-day events. How else could anyone explain the actual events of their history, even up to the present day?

    When America withdraws from its role as the last remaining friend of Israel, we also will fall. This is why President Obama’s actions relative to Israel’s primary enemy, Islam, is so significant. His words of denial (have you noticed that almost every report in the media which addresses the recent pole numbers showing that as many as 24% of the population beleive, based on his actions, that he is a Muslim, always include the words “incorrectly”, “erroniously”, or “mistakenly”)notwithstanding, every observable indication is that he is, if not a Muslim, willing to sacrifice Israel in order to achieve favor with the Islamic world?


  3. John Buyon says:

    ” A little more than 70 years ago, the global, economic left allied itself with the seeming strength of Nazism ”

    what??????? this is the 2nd most ridiculous thing ever on this website. where do you rightists get the idea that Nazis were left wing. left wing is not nazism.
    here are several examples that left wing was the mortal enemy of Nazism, and remember this is exactly the time period you specified 70 years ago.

    what was the Spanish civil war? it was a group of militant left wingers (socialists, communists, anarchists) and their armed labor unions fighting against the ultra right wing Falange Española who had support from the Nazis, and Italian fascists.

    world war 2.
    The British government was a coalition between the Tory’s and the socialist British Labor party
    in alliance with the communist Soviet Union
    as well as the United states with a pro-socialist president (FDR)

    engaged in a world war for heavens sake.
    against the ultra right wing

    Japanese imperial militarist dictatorship.
    Fascist Italy
    Nazi Germany.

    and 1 last example of how “friendly” the Nazis and the left wing were.
    you right wingers who proffess so much knowledge on history and politics especially from the world war years must know about Hitler’s rise to power.

    and what the enabling act of 1933 allowed Hitler to do and who supported the act.
    what Machtergreifung was
    the strategy that the Nazis used to build a totalitarian society ( Gleichschaltung )

    while I wouldn’t call Hitler and Nazism a “conservative” movement he most definitely was not a left winger, and the only resistance to the Nazi regime from inside Germany came from the Labor Unions.

    who said radical islam is left wing? it is the furthest right wing ideology left in existence.

    the american thinker article is such a joke, even more silly than the 9/11 conspiracy nuts, that thought that the entire bush admin conspired to stage an attack on the nation. you think the incompetent forever feuding democratic party is capable of launching a coup d’etat? they couldn’t even get a simple public option for health care.

    another example of the right wing, getting basic facts mixed up, making things up, and extrapolating like crazy to support pre-conceived conclusions.

  4. John Feeny says:

    Buyon –
    Facts are stubborn things. Explain to me why Hitler himself claimed that there was essentially no difference between Communism and Nazism. Perhaps, rather than firing back at people who take the time to put their thoughts to paper, you might want to go find your old college professors and beat the he’ll out of them for lying to you.

    Further, have a watch of thus clip…it’s all you need to know.

  5. Boston Blackie says:

    “this is the 2nd most ridiculous thing ever on this website. where do you rightists get the idea that Nazis were left wing.”
    Please don’t leave us hanging any longer – what is #1 on your list???

  6. Boston Blackie says:

    “When America withdraws from its role as the last remaining friend of Israel, we also will fall. This is why President Obama’s actions relative to Israel’s primary enemy, Islam, is so significant ”

    Randy – Well said, as Christians we are all children of Isreal.
    With friends like that who needs enemies.

  7. John Feeny says:

    John –
    One other thing – while the Nazis represent total government, the point of this piece is that the global economic elite HITCHED THEIR WAGONS to the Nazi train, merely for financial gain. Perhaps you might want to look at someone like Henry VIII in this regard as well…or do you still believe that he broke with the RC church over a divorce?

    Big Hank could read the Reformation tea leaves, my friend. He felt the wind.

    Your boy in the white house is really not much different – while he may hold certain social beliefs, he is assisting much more powerful forces ally themselves with the next group of lunatics, because they’re the best bet right now to help bring down the American people.

    Tell ya what – my wife is really looking forward to Sharia Law.

  8. whats_up says:

    What is really sad is that this is nothing more than a propaganda piece. Any student of history understands whom was aligned with whom during World War 2. While there were some in this country that supported Nazi Germany it was not the “left”. It was individuals. After all the greatest “socialist” President, FDR, was the one that helped defeat Nazism. Why would he do that if the “left” was aligned with them. Why would a “socialist” England and a communist Soviet Union fight against Nazism if they actually supported it. A very poor thought out piece John, one deviod of any facts at all. Mere propaganda.

  9. Chuck Harrison says:


    Great article. Obama giving healthcare to the less fortunate equates to Hitler killing 6 million Jews. Brillant!!!

  10. John Feeny says:

    Yep, that’s me. Master propagandist.

  11. Boston Blackie says:

    “Yep, that’s me. Master propagandist.”

    Maybe you should forward your resume to 1600 Penn Ave, there a czar position with your name on it.

  12. John Feeny says:

    Boston -
    Well, the real money is in working Asa government sla- I mean, servant – these days.

    Think I’ll apply. I’m pretty good at it, aren’t I?

  13. graypanther says:

    “the global economic elite HITCHED THEIR WAGONS to the Nazi train, merely for financial gain.”

    True enough, with three prime examples being Henry Ford, Thomas Watson Sr., and Prescott Bush (GHWB’s daddy). For more on this see Trading With the Enemy by Charles Higham. None of the above three, however, could fairly be called leftists.

  14. Randy Wills says:

    I read the comments of both John Buyon and “whats-up” with sincere interest and curiosity and I wonder if either one, or perhaps both, would provide me and the other “wing nuts” who frequent AR with a complete and accurate translation of candidate Obama’s vow to “fundamentaly transform the U.S.”. In particular, please elucidate the implied “from” and the “to”.

    Thanking you in advance,


    P.S. to Chuck Harrison; I’m greatly relieved to know that it is Obama who is going to “give” healthcare to the “less fortunate” (i.e. welfare queens and illegal immigrants, to name a few). For awhile I, and almost 65% of the citizens, comprised, I would imagine, mostly of right-wing bigots, had the impression it was going to be paid for by responsible taxpayers who take as much responsibility for their lives as humanly possible.

  15. John Buyon says:

    @ John Feeney
    who might these global elites be that Obama is unintentionally aiding?
    and how are they friendly to radical Islam?

    I just want to understand the lens you see reality through, that’s all.

    this is so ridiculous I cant believe I’m having this conversation, on whether Hitler was a lefty.

    if your definition of “left wing” is the one this video describes, you are correct.
    but this video spreads confusion, it describes authoritarianism as left wing for some reason. the traditional definition of left wing in democratic societies is the political group that advocates
    reformed liberalism ie. social liberalism
    while right wing is classical liberalism
    ever heard of the political compass quiz? it simplifies political language debates through traditional left wing right wing but adds a 2nd dimension authoritarian “up” and anarchism “down” check it out and you will get a clear understanding of politics the video you showed just confuses everyone more. so stop saying hitler was a lefty because he was authoritarian.

    @ whats_up
    you didn’t even mention who the Americans were who were opposed to going to war. the ostensible “responsible” conservatives in the democratic and republican parties opposed war against Japan and Germany, all the way until pearl harbor.

  16. Free says:

    Randy, he not only ‘gives’ us healthcare, but I heard he will pay our mortgages and put gas in our cars. What a dumb electorate, I swear.

  17. Chuck Harrison says:

    Please try and distinquish between literal and figurative. When someone says Hitler killed six million Jews do you seriously think he personally killed six million people? I should have said Obama made healthcare available to the less fortunate.

  18. Randy Wills says:

    Chuck, please try to distinguish between the satirical and the serious. And BTW, I’ll bet you a dollar to a doughnut that the good President Obama will not make it through the campaign season without claiming that HE “gave” us taxpayer-funded universal health care. And he’ll mean it – literally.


  19. Gail B. says:

    Good job, Feeny! Randy, you’re right on top of things, too. And, Boston, what would we do without you?!

  20. Gail B. says:

    John Buyon, why do you keep coming back to show your ignorance? It’s really sad, how much of the koolaid you have consumed. Are you just a hopeless case of brainwashing?

  21. whats_up says:

    @ Gail

    Why do you think those that disagree with you have been “brainwashed” It is possible to have a different point of view, millions of Americans do in fact have a different point of view. Pretty arrogant to say that they all have been “brainwashed”.

  22. Lisa G in NZ says:

    good post Mr. Feeney … I see you even have your own troll.

    must be over the target to get that much flak…

    hmm, I’ve never heard of any ‘righties’ converting to ‘lefties’

    ever… but seems like millions of independents, former democrats and all sorts of folks are now stating their newly avowed ‘righty-ism’s ALL OVER the place

    funny that

  23. John Feeny says:

    But NONE of the alleged “intellectual elite” (talk about a contradiction in terms) are EVER arrogant, are they?


  24. Memphis Belle says:

    If you’re catching flak, you’re over the target. Bombs away.

  25. whats_up says:

    @ Lisa,

    Many former conservatives have turned liberal. Just becasue you havent heard of it doesnt mean anything, unless of course you are trying to claim that you know every Conservative in the country. My uncle is a great example, used to be Conservative until his 40′s. He then realized that the Conservative movement didnt stand for what they said they did. They were for big governemtn for thier pet projects, they increased spending just as much as liberals. So he converted to a liberatarian. While not a Democrat he certianly is no longer a conservative.

  26. John Buyon says:

    weak man weak is the conservative movement in America

    you want a list of intellectuals who have seen the bankrupt nature of the american right wing?
    try the daughter of the last great Republican president (Susan Eisenhower)
    or the son of the last republican idol (Ron Reagan Jr.)
    how about colin powell…

    I’m not saying intellectuals have all the answers but they know that the retarded right has nothing left.

  27. Lisa G in NZ says:

    @whats_up says

    What? I used the term rightie and leftie… but since you use the term Conservative did you know “Conservatives have maintained their leading position among U.S. ideological groups in the first half of 2010. Gallup finds 42% of Americans describing themselves as either very conservative or conservative. This is up slightly from the 40% seen for all of 2009 and contrasts with the 20% calling themselves liberal or very liberal.”

    Lucky you! Sounds like you’re in the 20%-ers! This must mean you’re a fan of collectivism & are therefore thrilled to learn you’re in the minority! Wheee!


  28. BZINGA says:

    We’ll see how ‘weak’ we are in November.

  29. whats_up says:

    @ Lisa G,

    There you go making assumptions again. Try not doing it. I am in my 40′s dear.

  30. whats_up says:

    @ Lisa,

    Also as a side not, what that poll should have told you Lisa is that 58% of this country is not conservative, have you ever thought of that?

  31. John Buyon says:

    @ Lisa G

    the survey indicates exactly my point that the american media is dominated by conservative ideas.

    the word liberal is used as an epithet
    while the word conservative is used as a compliment…

    after 25 years of these conservative think tanks with their allies in the media beating into the mind of Americans that liberal = coward = tax -hikes = unholy = abortion = anti-american
    what can you expect?

  32. Randy Wills says:

    John, didn’t I just read somewhere that the ABC news organization employees gave Obama 88% of their political donations?

    I think that I’ve also read/heard that this is pretty consistent within the mainstream media, so it would seem that calling the media “conservative” would be kind of a stretch. I would also admit, however, that talk radio and some cable TV programs are dominated by conservatives.

    I would think that, as far as public opinion is concerned,and if it weren’t for the over-the-top liberal entertainment industry, they would pretty much balance each other out.


  33. chuck Harrison says:


    I love your satire. How about a serious post for a change.

  34. John Buyon says:

    @ Randy
    I didn’t say journalists are conservative I said
    “the american media is dominated by conservative ideas.”

    saying that 88% of the workers in ABC supported Obama and using that as a statement of bias in a news organization is akin to thinking that the cashier at a McDonald’s sets policy for the corporation.

    and @ Lisa , whats_up
    you are telling me that 42% of the american people describe themselves as conservatives compared to 20% Liberal? you do understand what the implications of such a statement are… right?

    that means american presidential elections are fought, won and lost by the ability of the right-wing to convince 9% of the independents to vote conservative…

  35. John Feeny says:

    Chuck -
    Sorry if the satire bothers you, but since the liberal “agenda” is nothing short of a complete joke, I find it difficult to be altogether too serious. I reserve my actual, real-life serious concerns for the welfare of my family, which this administration is doing its damnedest to destroy.

    So….satire it is.
