The Shadow World of America’s Transformation

The Shadow World of America’s Transformation

 

It can be argued that in our present day all-pervasive social, entertainment, and news media (24/7) across a couple of hundred channels, that it would be unreasonable to expect the public to keep up with many of the events that can affect their lives. Therefore, what many decry as “low information” voters, may in-fact be rational in their uniformed state.

After-all, it is argued, they must work, have and rear children, attend to their extended families, find time to enjoy themselves and rest. Today the average individual is flooded with information and very little of it is relevant to the healthy maintenance of our Constitutional Republic. Add to that, our public educational system’s tendency to neglect Western and American history, a high percentage of our voting public are in fact very  poorly informed on issues that bear upon the survival of their own way of life.

Only the smallest percent of our population understands of the trails of development and the purposeful assaults from the radical left within the America that Judge Bork referred to as the “Culture Wars”. Proportionately few would ever read this dense 343 page book, entitled “Slouching Towards Gomorrah”. I am left to wonder where else would they learn about such information?

Similarly, comparatively few would read anther densely packed, highly referenced book of 532 pages. The very important book that I now reference is Robert Chandler’s (2008) entitled, Shadow World: Resurgent Russia, The Global New Left, and Radical Islam.

Chandlers book, places Bork’s accurate observations, more in the middle-end times  of purposeful Marxist revolutionary events that moved from outside America, into the acute beginnings of its decline in the 1960’s, and through to America’s increasingly moribund condition at the start of the 21st Century.

To be sure, there is a complex and interacting mass of events that have contributed to America’s present condition. But, you can be certain that intelligent and purposeful revolutionary efforts from within and outside of America have exploited our weakening conditions.

Robert Chandler, Ph.D., is a retired Air Force colonel and a Vietnam veteran. He has been a “strategist” for the Air Force, and the Central Intelligence Agency. He has also worked as a strategist for the White House and various departments, such as Defense, Energy and Justice.

Robert Chandler introduces us to the “Big Picture” of the Marxist/socialist assault on America and the rest of West, as follows:

“Shadow World is about the political forces hidden deeply in the shadows of international affairs. It examines a wide range of America-haters, including those aging ones who survived the Cold War and others that have since been spawned by new transnational predators. America’s unchallenged ascendance during the 1990’s resulting from its position as the world’s sole economic and military superpower triggered the development of a caldron of vicious political, economic, environmental, social, and cultural anti-American centers. This seething hatred for Americans coalesced into a loose network of mutual support through three main centers of anti-U.S. activity: (1) the Kremlin’s hidden hand operating from the shadow world to created conditions favorable for Russia’s long-term geopolitical objectives; (2) a radical progressive-socialist-marxist web of popular fronts, agents of influence, and covert operatives fostering an anti-capitalist cultural revolution in the United States and Europe; and (3) an Islamic Salafist multinational with interconnections between al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups dedicated to restoration of a world caliphate and Saudi Arabia’s plans to place Europe, Russia, and the United States under Islamic suzerainty.

These three main activity hubs operate as independent centers of anti-Americanism, but there are many connections between them. Together they make-up a “Faceless International” pursuing common goals of reducing U.S. power and influence in the world, while they compete for global geopolitical dominance. These shared strategic objectives offer opportunities for ad hoc support for one another, sometimes as the result of intermediaries coordinating activities and at other times simply parroting the policy line of the other. Russia, for instance, contributes to the radical Left’s “peace movement” through its recycled Cold War ideological allies inside the United States. At the same time, anti-war protests against America’s war on terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq by the homegrown radical Left and abroad are supported by al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups. Russia, on the other hand, supports international terrorism in the form of arms transfers to enemy combatants through proxies and sub-proxies.

Against this backdrop, three major geopolitical contenders, each with sufficient resources to establish a new world order, are locked in a long-term, winner-take-all competition. Their weapons are words and culture, economic strengths and diplomatic skill, political action in the open and from the world’s shadows, as well as guns and bombs. The ultimate victor will win the right to exercise its power and political authority over all of the Earth’s six billion people” (pps. xii and xiii).

While this breath-taking conclusion may seem unlikely, I will urge you not to dismiss it as an example of pure alarmist paranoia. From a psychological perspective, the idea that the confusing world of conflict that we see globally, and also playing out in America, is pure chaos is improbable. Early in human development, behavior becomes increasingly goal- directed and with age and experience, the chains of actions that are designed to lead to various rewards in life (immediate, intermediate and very distant) grow longer and greatly more elaborate. The same goes for adult organizations in association with each other.

The old saying that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”, would appear to nicely sum-up the history of the many strained and competing allies joining forces in a common, coordinated, struggle for domination over common enemies. The cooperative effort between America’s allies during WWII provides a fine example of such global planned, complex, coordinated strategies in successful action.

To miss this critical piece of big-picture-reality is to meet the present planned and coordinated external and internal threats to America’s existence with naiveté and ignorance.

There is more to come on these forces that will mediate America’s cultural survival.

Leftist Bias on America’s Campuses

Lefist Bias On America’s Campuses

McCarthy was right in his time and he is still right. I will bet he is rolling in his grave!

Please take time to read the following: You need to know this.

The following is a direct quote from The shadow World, by Robert Chandler (pps. 231 & 232).

In Radical Son, David Harowitz described the hard Left’s infiltration of American universities after the 1991 implosion of Soviet Union. They became agents of influence for “Marxist renewal of re-emergence” in the United States and beyond.

The situation in the universities was appalling. The Marxists and socialists who had been refuted by historical events were now tenured establishment of the academic world. Marxism had produced the bloodiest and most oppressive regimes in human history—but after the fall, as one wit commented, more Marxists could be found on the faculties of American colleges than in the entire former Communist block (Howowitz, Radical Son, p. 405).

Hiding behind academic masks, these progressive-socialist-marxist professors—modern ‘organic’ intellectuals—have poisoned the minds of millions of students with American-hating, Gramscian Marxist advocacy. Out of some 617,000 college and university professors in United States in 2006, David Horowitz estimated, some 25,000 to 30,000 of them were leftists. When one tallies the number of university students passing through the classrooms of these “teachers of destruction” each year and the number influenced by their radical writings, Horowitz found that on the order of three million potential brainwashees could have been influenced annually.

The Leftist bias on America’s campuses is also shown by political party enrollments of professors in departments most important to American democratic culture: economics, English, political science, sociology, psychology, and anthropology. Professors as Brown University in 2002, for example, numbered fifty-four on the Left to three on the right. The Left-right disparity was obvious at the other universities as well: Stanford University–151 to 17, Cornell University—166 to 6, and the University of California at San Diego— 99 to 6. A similar lack of diversity and pro-Left bias was apparent at Penn State, University of Maryland, University of Colorado at Boulder, and many other colleges and universities across the country.

Marxists running professional associations reflected the shift of focus in academe to ‘a kind of psudosociology of race-gender-class oppression,’  Horowitz explained. The mission of the university…was now of  ‘of social transformation.’  Not only had ‘radical politics…become the intellectual currency off academic thought,’  Howowitz continued, but the ‘faculties, administrations, and departments…tried to recruit students to their political agendas.’  Testifying before a Kansas House of Representatives hearing on academic freedom, Howowitz explained that  ‘entire academic departments and fields are no longer devoted to scholarly pursuits, but have become ideological training and recruitment centers for radical causes.’ Adopting the role of ‘revolutionary intellectuals,’ these radical professors are working like Gramsci’s fellow travelers in the promotion of actions to destroy the values supporting the American Identity

America’s Congress: A Marxist Target

America’s Congress: A Marxist Target

Robert Chandler reports in his book, Shadow World, that the center of our Government is rife with Marxist influences. He provides ample authoritative resources to bolster his astonishing allegations.

Did you know that your Congress had something named The Congressional Progressive Caucus, composed of individuals who’s political and world views most closely resemble those who are working for a Socialist-Marxist World Order? This is a very influential caucus and, with other like-minded representatives, they strive for progressive-socialist-marxist political dominance in the U.S..

I hate to break it to you my friends, but we have all been asleep in the watch tower and we had better wake-up right now.

The left has ridiculed and vilified Glenn Beck to such a degree that even conservatives are not comfortable evaluating his views. I challenge you to evaluate the following and form your conclusions on your own…balanced against the popular media’s liberal biases on the issues discussed.

If you do, I believe you will experience a large dose of cognitive dissonance: Just what America needs…and it needs it right now!
