America's French Revolution VI: Out-Frenching France
By Michael Moriarty
The fervor of the French Revolution … well, apparently it's fading in France … at least at the highest level. According to Reuters, President Nicolas Sarkozy, "initially dubbed Sarko the American for his pro-U.S. stand, is finding it tough to deal with Washington … "
Hmmm, so the costumes are being traded … and, indeed, the Obama Nation of America, following the increasingly Far Left, economic advice of George Soros, is going to carry on the "true" and Progressive fervor of Revolutionary France.
Reuters further indicates that Obama prefers dealing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Reuters also declares that , "Chinese military backs U.S. ties"! Aaah, the gift-bearing Chinese!!
I personally think that Sarkozy's disappointment with President Obama springs not from any of the odd, Berlin/Washington/Beijing love affairs but rather from Obama's capitulating diplomacy with Vladimir Putin's neo-Soviet Russia.
I could be wrong, the levels of purity in the Left have grown increasingly complex. Leftist Brazil and sort-of-Leftist, Sarkozified France are getting on splendidly … while Far Left China prefers the increasingly apparent, Radical Left of Obama over the apparently heretical policies of Paris.
However, as chief Obama economic adviser George Soros observes in his interview with Financial Times, China's "bilateral" adventures are expanding to include Brazil and Argentina … and who knows what other countries … leaving the U.S. in an increasingly vulnerable position.
I'm not sure who might have been the economic adviser to Robespierre but perhaps, in those glory days of the French Revolution, falling heads were more important than a falling currency.
I am sure, however, that 18th Century France was obliged, by "Change they could believe in", to endure both falling heads and a falling Franc.
Figurative, American guillotines are being rolled in for the likes of Fox News and the Chamber of Commerce.
How unexpected it must have been for the White House to have the other major networks refuse an interview with the newest of Czars, Pay-meister Kenneth Feinberg … unless Fox News was also included.
Clearly the disgusting detritus of old American, bourgeois loyalties!
These press apparatchiks will soon fall back in line after The One, The Marxist Godfather makes CNN, ABC, NBC and CBS a few offers they can't refuse. They'll be "breaking ranks" with the Fourth Estate regularly until, of course, the Fourth Estate looks like just another corner of the American real estate market.
Hearing George Soros the other day in an interview with the Financial Times, one senses just how "in order" things are for this disciple of a Socialist philosophy that grows increasingly Marxist and … well … actually Communist.
If Soros is to be trusted -- instead of God that is -- the American hey-day, for one thing, is clearly over and China will be the "engine" that drives things.
"I may be wrong … have been before …" he says with Hungarian humility but in a very American vernacular. He describes, with a certain, heavily veiled satisfaction, how the dollar will no longer be the principle world currency.
Remember this man almost broke the Bank of England! What challenge has he left but to help bankrupt America?!
Obama's economic apparatchiks now parrot Soros with: "There will be unemployment in America for some time to come."
I know Soros is not Russian but he could easily be mistaken for a Muscovite and the increasingly evident power he wields over the Obama White House is strangely reminiscent of Moscow's eternal love affair with the French Revolution. A passion that led Lenin and Company into their own version of revolt.
Now, however, it is not Soviet Russia but the New World Order which these Revolutionaries are constructing … and it is as if the entire meaning of America and Capitalism and the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, individual freedom and the inalienable right to life were, at least in the minds of these pro-abortion Revolutionaries, utterly irrelevant.
How telling are Obama's earlier complaints about the American Constitution and that document's justifiable paranoia about government, the limitations it sets on what government can do.
With Soros prophesying a New World Order with the likes of Red China as the "engine" behind it -- how euphoric that must make the Maoists.
The Stalinists or rather Putinists will just have to bow to Mao.
Soros was, at one time, very close to Putin -- in an advisory capacity that is. Read about the two of them in Death of a Dissident by Alex Goldfarb and Marina Litvinenko, about the murder of Alexander Litvinenko
It's quite a yarn … one that really hasn't ended. The murder has yet to be solved … and the man who ordered the hit on Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko has yet to be revealed.
However, when you think of it … one death? Could that be important in the midst of the Revolution's greatest victory?
One small dissident's death during the Great, Marxist Revolutionary Demand for the death of America as we know it!
The creation of an indestructibly Marxist New World Order?!
These days Soros is not given to excessive jubilation; and in the old, glorious Revolutionary days, Lenin wasn't either. The really hard work, the messy work, the bloody work was … and is still ahead.
