Most people have heard the fable about the frog and the scorpion, but in the event you haven’t, I’ll briefly recount it here. A scorpion asks a frog to carry him on his back to the other side of a stream. The frog initially refuses, telling the scorpion that he would likely sting and kill him along the journey.
The scorpion promises not to, pointing out that they would both die if the scorpion was to sting the frog in the middle of the water. The frog then said that the scorpion would sting the frog once they were on the other side. The scorpion scoffed, telling the frog that he would be too grateful to do something as sinister as that.
Like the story of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the tale does not have a happy ending. After the frog agrees to carry the scorpion, the frog gets stung in the middle of the stream, dooming them both. When the frog asks the scorpion why, the scorpion simply replies, “it is my nature.” Believe what you wish about America’s foreign policy, but Ambassador Stevens succumbed to the sting of the scorpion that is inherent in the nature of Islamic fundamentalism that exists under the pretext of what is termed “Arab Spring.”
On June 4, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama made what many describe as a conciliatory speech in Cairo, which laid the foundation for his foreign policy in the Arab World. Thus began a doctrine of overt acquiescence and apology, followed by an active policy of engagement against certain Middle East dictators who were repressing democracy. At least that’s the way it was made to appear on the surface.
Obama’s actions by funding and arming the very element who promised not to “sting” us illustrates only one of two possibilities. Either inexplicable naiveté by Obama, or a deliberate course of action designed to create orchestrated chaos across the Middle East. While Ambassador Stevens might have adhered to the ideology that by helping our enemies, our actions would cause them to suddenly abandon their inherent nature and become our friends, it is unlikely that this was, or is Obama’s mindset. By all accounts and by his own admission, he is fully aware of that ideology as he lived it.
Given our experiences over the last fifty years and through multiple administrations, we must then ask what it is that Obama is actually attempting to do? The answer to this question, if one believes that he actually understands the Islamic mindset, is beyond troubling. It becomes exponentially more troubling as one digs far beneath the official narratives of White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice.
It is here that one must have a very good understanding of history, and not the history shaped by the influx of Petrodollars into American academia. It is extremely important to understand that since the 1970s, our universities have been saturated with money provided by Arab and Muslim elites. By influencing the students and educators coming from these universities and redefining history, the whole of society, including politicians and journalists are thusly influenced. From the early 1970s forward, Middle East studies overtook schools and universities, teaching a false historical doctrine that eventually shaped our foreign policy and how the current generation of journalists report on Muslim and Middle East issues.
This, combined with the agenda of global elites, especially the Progressives and those on the far left, resulted in the stifling of any historical understanding of the global Islamic Caliphate. Understanding history and exploiting American’s intellectual paralysis, compliments of a media staffed by the new generation of journalists and infiltrated by globalist facilitators, the globalists saw 2008 as the time to roll out an already well-groomed Barack Hussein Obama, a self-proclaimed citizen of the world, as the leader of the free world. The actual and perceived failures of the Bush administration’s foreign policy, itself influenced by oil and the coziness that only Petrodollars could buy, set the stage for Obama. Finally, the events put into motion decades ago, propelled by the 9/11 attacks, could be cultivated to advance their idea of a New World Order, or a singular system of international rule.
To accomplish this system of global governance, it would be necessary to change the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East. Hold-outs for national independence and sovereignty would have to be removed, such as Mubarak in Egypt and Gaddafi in Libya. Without the preoccupation of a cold war enemy, the globalists and the Islamic fundamentalists united in a common goal: to usurp the sovereignty and independence of nations filled with Islamic fundamentalists held at bay by their despotic leaders. This was done under the thinly veiled pretext of advancing human rights and promoting democracy where none had ever existed and never could. The pretext is able to exist due to the lack of honest scrutiny by a complicit media. Moreover, few Americans have the ability to challenge the official narrative, thanks to the revisionist history taught in schools and universities, compliments of the Arab and Muslim elite.
With the promise of re-establishing an Islamic Caliphate in the region known as the Greater Middle East, or the area from Morocco to Afghanistan, Obama inked a deal with the Muslim Brotherhood as a means to clear the path for a global system of governance. He brought in the Muslim Brotherhood to all areas of our government to collude with the globalists and communists already firmly rooted in our government and our media. The allegiance of both the secular globalists and Islamic fundamentalists working to re-establish a Caliphate promises them all a seat at the globalist table, yet they fail to understand that they are dining with scorpions.
The Obama doctrine, it would appear, is one of orchestrated deconstruction of countries getting in the way of the reconstruction of the Islamic Caliphate. Once established, the Islamic Caliphate will usher in a repressive global religion complimentary to the larger globalist agenda. Accordingly, Syria cannot be allowed to exist in its current form, nor can Israel, but for different reasons. We witnessed this doctrine in action in Egypt and Libya, with the spoils going to a cabal of international bankers backing the plan.
The Obama doctrine of foreign policy is the globalist doctrine, except the Obama doctrine employs the effective use of the Muslim Brotherhood to advance the globalist agenda. This explains the seemingly schizophrenic policies in play by Obama and those signed on to his agenda on both sides of the political spectrum.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” That quote is attributed to Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s minister of propaganda, and a monster with a deep contempt for humanity.
It is easy to see the quote in action today. Simply look at the narratives pushed by Obama and his minions, and other politicos on all sides of the political divide. Obviously, Obama does not have exclusivity to its use, but he certainly has mastered it. He has been helped by an American academia that has been infiltrated long enough to produce a generation intellectually hobbled in history, and a media so enamored by a messianic persona manufactured by a cabal of globalists that it is collectively blind to their own coming demise.
It is sad that Ambassador Christopher Stevens met his own demise at the hands of the very people he truly thought were his friends. One can even understand the mindset of Ambassador Stevens, as he was the product of the same doctrine that led to his demise. In the end, however, we must realize that we will meet the same fate if we do not understand that what we’ve been told, and what we continue to be told, is a big lie that is being repeated at the behest of the globalist elite.
Arab Spring was never spontaneous, but carefully planned and orchestrated. It is not about freeing repressed nations, but conquering them. It is not about democracy, but about destroying their sovereignty and replacing one oppressor with another. It’s about taking the spoils and lining the pockets of those bankrolling the operations. It’s just one phase in a series of phases. It’s about re-instituting the Islamic Caliphate that ruled until European mandates ended its reign, and using it as a means to a larger end. Again, who better than Barack Hussein Obama, as ruler of the free world, to usher in the new Caliphate?
The globalist table is being set. The plans are order from chaos – engineered chaos. The “New World Order” has been defined, and its plans are in progress. Barack Hussein Obama has been selected as the one to usher in the new age of global governance. Backroom deals have been made by those who believe they will have a seat at that table. However, most will not sit at that table. Like the frog, they will take their final breaths underneath a scorpion.
