Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Princeton Professor Cornel West Incites Ferguson once again

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, August 12, 2015:

Last October Princeton Professor Cornel West hied himself off to Ferguson to see just how he could help extend the violence and promote totalitarianism in that unhappy city. This past weekend he similarly could not resist the temptation to revisit Ferguson on the anniversary of the death of Michael Brown, with the same goals in mind.

On the surface, West appears to be relatively benign:

Princeton Professor Cornel West Goes to St. Louis

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, July 11, 2015: 

When Princeton Professor Cornel West was arrested on Monday for blocking the entrance to the Thomas F. Eagleton Federal Courthouse in St. Louis, not far from Ferguson where protesters turned violent Sunday night and early Monday morning, the media bent over backwards to keep from exposing his radical Marxist background. Celebrating what the media called a “national day of civil disobedience,” West was referred to by CNN as a “scholar,” a “civil rights activist,” and an “intellectual” while the Associated Press limited its descriptors to just “scholar” and “civil rights activist.” USA Today, in its reporting of the incident, called West an “author” and “activist” and let it go at that.

To be better informed, however, one must look beyond the mainstream media to learn what the Princeton professor is really all about.

What Makes Obama Tick?

After hitting No. 2 on the New York Times’ best-seller list in early September, “Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream” author Dinesh D’Souza was asked why he was surprised at the success of both his book and the movie based on it: “2016: Obama’s America”. He said: “It shows a real hunger for information on Obama. There’s a sense [that] we haven’t got the full story on this guy.”

The official narrative is that President Barack Obama is a graduate of Harvard Law, the first African-American president, whose father is from Kenya and his mother from Kansas. As D’Souza takes great pains to point out, the official narrative hides an enormous amount of background from view. D’Souza exposes some of that background and then claims that Obama adopted his father’s “anti-colonialism” – the doctrine which Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara called “a world system, the last stage of capitalism [which] must be defeated in a world confrontation” – which maintains that the West, primarily America, got rich by invading, occupying and looting poor countries to obtain their mineral wealth. As D’Souza noted in Forbes magazine in September 2010:

Barack Obama, Sr.

From a very young age and through his formative years, Obama learned to see America as a force for global domination and destruction. He came to view America’s military as an instrument of neocolonial occupation.

He adopted his father’s position that capitalism and free markets are code words for economic plunder. Obama grew to perceive the rich as an oppressive class, a kind of neocolonial power within America.

In his worldview, profits are a measure of how effectively you have ripped off the rest of society, and America’s power in the world is a measure of how selfishly it consumes the globe’s resources and how ruthlessly it bullies and dominates the rest of the planet

As a result, Obama seeks “a smaller America, a poorer America, an America unable to exert its will, an America…in decline so that others might rise…America needs to be taken down a notch.”

There are at least two problems with D’Souza’s thesis: one, Obama never

Obama’s America: 2016 Movie Review

Recently released in Texas and now being presented at some 400 theaters across the country, conservative scholar Dinesh D’Souza has, with the help of Gerald Molen (“Schindler’s List”) and John Sullivan, produced a documentary in “2016” which persuasively projects a frightening future for America: emaciated in military power, weakened financially, with diminished allies such as Israel in a world increasingly dangerous and threatening.

D’Souza starts out by proving his status not as an ideologue but as a patriot with roots in India who loves the opportunities this country has given him that would scarcely be possible back home. He persuades his audience that he only seeks to understand how a man like Obama, with so many similarities (born in the same year, married in the same year, attended Ivy League schools at the same time) could come out with such a different, even radical, point of view about America.

Based on his two books about Obama (“The Roots of Obama’s Rage” and “Obama’s America”) D’Souza concentrates on Obama’s autobiography, “Dreams From My Father” and begins with the thesis that because it is not entitled “Dreams OF My Father” it provides an essential clue into that thinking: that Obama has internalized the anti-colonial ideology of a man he scarcely knew.

D’Souza said, “One of the themes in the movie is the anti-colonial goal of downsizing America in the name of global justice. So the core idea here is that America has become a rogue nation in the world and also that America enjoys a standard of living that is unconscionably high compared to the rest of the world. So anti-colonialism is a program of global reparations…It’s reparations for global injustice. Obama’s goal is to shrink America.”

There are significant gaps in the movie that cry out for remedy and explanation. First, there is a persuasive argument put forth by

The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House

Barack Obama and Michelle Obama

The Amateur is more about the man—his hubris, his arrogance, his naiveté—than it is about his ideology because the author, a member of the insider Council on Foreign Relations, an influential group that promotes the diminishing of our country’s constitutional structure and the ceding of U.S. sovereignty to a transnational global government such as the United Nations, no doubt shares that ideology.

Klein is a certified member of the establishment elite, having graduated from Columbia University with two degrees and having been a foreign affairs editor at Newsweek magazine and a former editor of the New York Times Magazine. It was the latter position that allowed him the opportunity to interview nearly 200 individuals who are acquainted, some of them intimately, with the current White House occupant while protecting Klein and his book from attack by the Obama “Kool-Aid drinkers” as he calls the mindless, witless journalists and historians who have supported Obama from the beginning.

Klein takes his reader into a private, off-the-record dinner meeting at the White House early in the Obama administration, attended by nine liberal historians, each of whom supported the new President and were celebrating his victory. During that dinner the President spelled out his
