THE BLOODLESS COUP
by Linda Goudsmit, ©2017
(May 17, 2017) — We are witness to an attempted coup branded as the “resistance movement” being perpetrated by left-wing liberals led by EX-president Barack Hussein Obama and the saboteurs he left behind in the US government.
The mainstream media has colluded with the Leftists by deliberately disseminating FAKE news from UNNAMED sources and insisting it is “real” news.
Historically coups and military juntas are led by political opposition leaders and perpetrated by the army – they are bloody confrontations resulting in victory and defeat. The seated government remains or is removed by the opposition party.
The United States of America, the single greatest experiment in individual freedom and upward mobility, is distinguished by its remarkable peaceful transfer of power through presidential elections and societal acceptance of the results. The political process and presidential elections in the United States have historically paralleled fierce athletic competitions where teams face off against each other abiding by accepted rules of play. They compete, they battle, one team is victorious and the other defeated, the captains and players on both teams shake hands and then move on to analyze the game and compete another day.
The good sportsmanship displayed after the heated battle is part of the accepted rules of conduct observed by the league and expected by the fans. When Americans watch soccer fans in Europe burning buildings and turning over cars in flagrant disrespect of the accepted rules of good sportsmanship, they are appropriately appalled.
Americans should be equally appalled by the burning buildings, turning over cars, and flagrant disrespect for the rules of the peaceful transfer of power being violated by the left-wing liberals engaging in their very unAmerican war against constitutionally elected President Donald Trump.
The Left is waging a deceitful information war against President Donald Trump. Its most powerful weapon is the colluding mainstream media and its deliberate FAKE NEWS echo chamber of false allegations and false accusations from unnamed sources that are repeated incessantly by every one of its news outlets. This coordinated attempt to destabilize, delegitimize, and topple Donald Trump is an attempted bloodless coup. Instead of fielding a stronger candidate to oppose Trump in the next presidential election the disingenuous Left speaks of justice but is attempting to cheat the democratic system and overthrow the government.
The Leftist attempts at a bloodless coup are Orwellian. George Orwell brought us the language of doublespeak in his classic novel 1984. Doublespeak is the language of opposites. Up is down and down is up. The 21st-century Leftist progressives speak doublespeak – their “progressive” narrative is entirely regressive.
The word “doublespeak” derives from two Orwellian words, “doublethink” and “newspeak.” Doublethink is when a person accepts two mutually contradictory thoughts as correct without being aware or troubled by the glaring contradiction between them. Doublethink is saying “war is peace,” “freedom is slavery,” “ignorance is strength” without discomfort. Newspeak is a method of controlling thought through language – it is the language of fake news. Doublespeak combines doublethink and newspeak in language that deliberately obscures, distorts, disguises, or reverses the meaning of words to manipulate public opinion in a mass social engineering effort.
Orwellian doublespeak is the language of the hard Left leading the coup. Barack Obama spoke doublespeak when he promised hope and change. Obama deliberately obscured and disguised his hope to transform America from a democracy into a socialist state. Most Americans understood hope and change to mean a better life and the realization of the American dream – a hope to improve our democracy, not to destroy it.
WHY ARE THE PROGRESSIVES SPEAKING DOUBLESPEAK? WHAT IS THEIR GOAL? WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF RELABELING UP AS DOWN AND DOWN AS UP? WHO BENEFITS?
The left-wing liberal agenda seeks to destroy the socio-political democratic infrastructure of America and transform it into a dependent socialist state with cradle-to-grave control by the government. Their strategy is to destroy the traditional American institutions of family, religion, and education that promote independence, adulthood, individualism, and ego strength – the same qualities that made America great and support American sovereignty.
The regressive infantile impulses and temper tantrums exhibited by left-wing liberals today cannot seriously be called “progressive” except by double-speaking Leftists who believe that going backwards is going forward. REGRESSIVE is the accurate word for the infantile behavior and impulses that inform the “progressive” Left. Safe spaces, Play-Doh and counseling for disappointment, segregated black-only lounges – REALLY?? These Leftists need to GROW UP!
The university administrators who surrender to the infantile demands of progressives/regressives should be fired. The problem society is facing is that the left-wing liberal hippies of the 60s did not go quietly into the night – they reconstituted themselves as the administrators, professors, textbook-buyers, and curriculum-deciders of the 21st century. The Left is comprised of the same anarchists, counter-culture hippies of the 60s who are now the adults in charge of education in the United States. It is a chilling reality that must be addressed.
The mission of education in a democratic society is the free expression of ideas supported by Constitutionally-guaranteed freedom of speech. The shift from the objective reality of facts as the accurate reference for evaluating ideas to the subjective reality of feelings to determine the value of ideas has transformed universities from institutions of learning into bastions of Leftist propaganda and indoctrination.
Left-wing liberals want collectivism. The entire narrative of the Left is designed to promote collectivism and induce regression through educational indoctrination and the media – as Hillary Clinton famously remarked, they need “an unaware compliant public.” Unaware and compliant are the hallmarks of childhood. The pitch might sound good to a childish mind who is seduced by candy from a stranger, but the adult mind understands the sinister end-game. Once the public is entirely dependent on the government they lose all individual rights and national sovereignty as the socialized state becomes part of the internationalized one-world government.
SEISMIC SOCIAL CHANGE REQUIRES SOCIAL CHAOS. WHEN PEOPLE FEEL THEIR SAFETY THREATENED ENOUGH THEY WILL ACCEPT ANY RESTRICTIONS ON THEIR FREEDOMS.
As Henry Kissinger famously said at the Bilderberger Conference in Evians, France in 1991:
“Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.”
Doublespeak is an extremely powerful weapon used to create social chaos and fear through cognitive dissonance. The sinister goal of the Left is to reduce the adult population to compliant children by institutionalizing socialism, dependency, and regression. Cognitive dissonance engenders fear and regression in adults – it is a sinister tactic being deliberately used by the Left to transform an independent adult population into a dependent compliant population. The government handouts – the free stuff – is the candy for adults.
Cognitive dissonance is the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioral decisions and attitude change. The anxiety and tension created by having inconsistent thoughts is so disturbing that it mobilizes people to either change their thoughts or change their behavior in an attempt to regain equilibrium. Cognitive dissonance is being used to manipulate the public and effect seismic shifts in public opinion – they are being propagandized to believe the fiction that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam.
When a terrorist screams “Allah Akhbar” before slaughtering innocent people, common sense tells us that the terrorist is a jihadist with religious motivations. Obama/Clinton/Kerry, the WH echo chamber, and every Muslim Brotherhood offshoot insists that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam = cognitive dissonance. When Obama renamed the Ft. Hood shooting “workplace violence” and not Islamic terrorism he created cognitive dissonance – the public “knew” it was terrorism but Obama created cognitive dissonance by insisting that it wasn’t.
Cognitive dissonance pushes the public into subjective reality equivalent to the Hans Christian Anderson story of the “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” Donald Trump appeared and told the public that the Emperor “isn’t wearing anything at all!” Donald Trump lives in objective reality and that is why Donald Trump was elected and also why he is the enemy of the Left.
The difference between cognitive dissonance and doublethink is that as long as the inconsistencies in messaging can be identified and cause discomfort there is still the opportunity to rescue democracy from socialism. Once irrational doublethink has replaced rational thought and there is no discomfort in saying war is peace, freedom is slavery, or ignorance is strength – the coup is complete and the Left has succeeded in indoctrinating the public and destroying American democracy.
The left-wing liberal lemmings are the useful idiots who are too arrogant to understand that they are participating in their own destruction. They have been indoctrinated to believe they are altruistically fighting for “social justice” when in fact they are helping to establish the dystopian nightmare of one-world government where there is no middle class, no upward mobility, no national sovereignty, and no individual freedoms. There is only the ruling elite and the enslaved population who service them.
Philosopher Ayn Rand fled communist Russia and came to the United States in 1926. She was a brilliant, prolific writer and philosopher. Her legacy is her body of work exposing the dangers of totalitarianism. She understood that communism and socialism are often presented as altruistic humanitarian socio-political systems designed to benefit society, but in reality they are both sinister systems that rob the individual of his freedoms and enslave humanity. Ayn Rand was an impassioned advocate of free speech and the rights of the individual. She loved the freedoms of the United States and her writings are a warning about those who seek to destroy those freedoms.
Ayn Rand compared communism and socialism. “There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism – by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide.”
Collectivism today, whether promoted as communism or socialism, is the same anti-democratic anti-capitalist anarchist hippie movement from the ’60s. Ayn Rand understood the sinister nature of collectivism and and wrote extensively about socialism/communism and how it persuades the individual to stop being an individual. “Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong to him, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good.”
The Islamization of Europe and the West demonstrates how mass social indoctrination toward collectivism leads to cultural suicide. “When you consider socialism, do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as “human rights” versus “property rights.” No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the ‘right’ to ‘redistribute’ the wealth produced by others is claiming the “right” to treat human beings as chattel.”
Facts and truth are the accurate references of objective reality being abandoned for the subjective reality of feelings, political correctness, moral relativity, and historical revisionism. It is as dangerous to democracy and freedom as removing us from the gold standard was to our economy. In 1966 Alan Greenspan wrote “Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists’ antagonism toward the gold standard.”
It is no accident that Barack Obama left America with a 20 trillion dollar deficit. Collapsing the economy was another deliberate tactic to destabilize and destroy American democracy as devastating as de-industrializing America with outrageous regulations and taxation that sent American manufacturing overseas.
The left-wing liberal lemmings in Europe and in America should take a break from marching and “resisting” and start reading Bertrand Russell’s The Impact of Science on Society written in 1952. They will learn that their script was written 65 years ago by the globalist elites who dreamed of one-world government – a binary socio-political system of masters and slaves.
Macron’s victory is a victory for doublespeak, collectivism at the expense of French sovereignty and individualism, postmodern moral relativism, and historical revisionism designed to destroy democracy and its incomparable individual rights and freedoms. The question is WHO benefits from Macron’s victory?? The globalist elite, of course. Socialism (total government control) is the death of democracy and the prerequisite for internationalizing nation-states and the imposition of one-world government.
One-world government is the big lie of the 21st century. It promises redistribution of wealth and social justice. What it will deliver is unapologetically described in chilling detail by globalist elite Bertrand Russell in his 1952 book The Impact of Science on Society.
The globalist elite’s New World Order was their self-serving answer to the Malthusian problem of the earth not having enough resources to sustain the population growth. Tavistock Institute was exported to America with the purpose of indoctrinating Americans via education and the media – particularly television – the greatest vehicle for mass social engineering ever invented. The Hollywood glitterati and the protesting hoards should take a pause and understand there is no place for them in the New World Order – they are simply useful idiots who will be destroyed.
The aristocratic Lord Bertrand Russell and the late David Rockefeller had no moral problem with eliminating the useless eaters any more than Hitler with exterminating Jews, Islamists with exterminating infidels, or the Chinese Emperors with burying their concubines alive to service them in the afterlife. The point is elitism is supremacist – there is no egalitarian respect for human life, only the pretense of humanitarian considerations. The Left and the Islamists have common cause in trying to destroy Europe and America from within – but it is the globalist elites who finance and disingenuously facilitate both groups because the social chaos they each engender is a prerequisite for imposing globalist elite one-world government. For the globalist elite, whether in Europe or in America, the Left and the Islamists are BOTH useful idiots. The Islamists speak Arabic and the Leftists speak Doublespeak. What free democratic nations need to do is translate both languages so that they understand the language of their enemies.
Obama should be tried for treason for trying to topple President Donald Trump. Obama’s own presidency should be investigated for the lawlessness and executive overreach that characterized it. Obama, Clinton, Lynch, Holder, Comey, Reid, Pelosi, Lerner, and Schumer, all vulnerable under a Trump administration investigation into their criminal wrongdoing, have colluded with the mainstream media to stop the investigations by deflecting attention away from themselves and onto Donald Trump with an echo chamber of FALSE accusations, FALSE allegations, and completely FAKE news. It is despicable. The war against Trump is a war against exposing the criminal actions of the Obama administration in the short run and a war against American nationalism led by the globalist elite in the long run. The short game and the long game both threaten the stability of America. Western democracies must awaken from their self-imposed slumber and oppose the insidious doublespeak of the FAKE news, educational indoctrination, and political character assassinations that threaten our democracies with a coordinated bloodless coup.
