Ben Rhodes! He is, as I have noted earlier in this series, President Barack Hussein Obama’s Deputy National Security Adviser For Strategic Communications.
“Strategic Communications”, given Ben Rhodes foundational background in writing fiction… is basically writing fiction.
Things that really never are, never really were and possibly never will be the Truth.
However, the New York Times article on Ben Rhodes by David Samuels insists upon asserting Ben Rhodes credibility: “He is, according to the consensus of the two dozen current and former White House insiders I talked to, the single most influential voice shaping American foreign policy aside from Potus himself.”
Two dozen inside sources for this?! Wow, indeed!!
Apparently Rhodes, according to this Times article, does 12 jobs a day for the President and does them better than the men and women hired to do those jobs.
From the article: “On the largest and smallest questions alike, the voice in which America speaks to the world is that of Ben Rhodes.”
We soon learn that, unlike a typical policy wonk, Ben Rhodes is a White House Superman… and, as far as I can translate from the phrase “strategic communications”, A PLAY-DOCTOR!
“He is the master shaper and retailer of Obama’s foreign-policy narratives, at a time when the killer wave of social media has washed away the sand castles of the traditional press.”
“Sand castles of the traditional press?!”
Could that mean “the lies of the mainstream media?!”
Or is this simply satirical hyperbole? Or what begins to appear like a New York Times’ adoring hagiography? A love song to Ben Rhodes?! And a leap of faith for the credibility of President Barack Hussein Obama?
And all that amidst the Times’ eternal war with “the killer wave of social media”.
In my view, the increasingly GIANT-sized wave of social media is increasingly DROWNING “the message” that both Obama and the Times are selling.
However, let us continue with this tale of Ben Rhodes:
“His (Rhodes’) ability to navigate and shape this new environment makes him a more effective and powerful extension of the president’s will than any number of policy advisers or diplomats or spies.
“Part of what accounts for Rhodes’s influence is his ‘mind meld’ with the president.”
N.B. The “p” of president is not capitalized.
The “R” of Rhodes is.
“Mind meld”?! It’s in quotes because the White House staff describes the Rhodes/Obama relationship as a “mind meld”.
The whirling White House Press Machine? Basically it appears to be, according to the author of this article, Ben Rhodes himself: “It’s a tutorial in the making of a digital news microclimate — a storm that is easy to mistake these days for a fact of nature, but whose author (Ben Rhodes) is sitting next to me right now.”
“Fact of nature”?
FORCE of nature?!
I’ve always thought that Mother Nature had some small part to play in the creation of Lucifer.
Mephistopheles as partly a “fact of nature”.
Apparently I, the actor in a mini-series entitled Holocaust, I also played a “fact of nature”. A relatively minor corner of the Third Reich but one as closely examined in that mini-series Holocaust as Ben Rhodes has been apparently admired in this Times article.
Keep the Obama Nation moving!
Toward what? A Thousand Year Reich?!
The Progressive New World Order.
The Progressive New World Order is A Fourth Reich.
Ostensibly to be run by the United Nations.
Eric Dorf and Ben Rhodes?
Eric Dorf, The Nazi Ben Rhodes
Dorf is small potatoes compared to Ben Rhodes but the big dreams of their bosses are the same!
A glimpse of both Ben Rhodes and the author of this article about Ben Rhodes?
Amidst the Iranian taking of ten American sailors, those caught and held hostages amidst the Mediterranean, the article’s author writes, “I peek over his (Rhodes’) shoulder, to get a sense of the meta-narrative that will shape dozens of thumb-suckers in the days and weeks to follow.”
Who was it? Someone also close to Obama? Called the entire American population “stupid”? Jonathan Gruber!
Was this article about Ben Rhodes really written by an indelibly Obama-esque, equally contemptuous soul brother, Professor Jonathan Gruber of MIT? Here are America’s divinely ordained respondents to the likes, no, the actual reality of an Obama spokesperson, Jonathan Gruber.
God bless Trey Gowdy for his ex-ray cross-examination of what is basically an Obama lawyer!!
Here’s a most prophetic revelation about the Obama administration:
“When I asked Jon Favreau, Obama’s lead speechwriter in the 2008 campaign, and a close friend of Rhodes’s, whether he or Rhodes or the president had ever thought of their individual speeches and bits of policy making as part of some larger restructuring of the American narrative, he replied, ‘We saw that as our entire job.’”
“The American narrative”?!
It is more like: The New American Identity following Obama’s own “Fundamental Transformation of The United States!”
My description of the “fundamental transformation”?
The Obama road to the Obama Nation of Marxist Islam!
Of Muslim Communism.
That is quite a “fundamental transformation” of the American Republic!
Now isn’t the following paragraph prophetic:
“Having recently spent time working in Hollywood, I realize during our conversations that the role Rhodes plays in the White House bears less resemblance to any specific character on Beltway-insider TV shows like ‘The West Wing’ or ‘House of Cards’ than it does to the people who create those shows. And like most TV writers, Rhodes clearly prefers to imagine himself in the company of novelists.”
I must remind you that, though Holocaust was not reality but television series, the Third Reich itself wasn’t fiction for Eric Dorf!
It was a profoundly and rabidly anti-Semitic reality.
The New World Order isn’t fiction either.
Not a fiction for Ben Rhodes!!
Nor, by now, for me!
Just ask George H. W. Bush!!
Bush and Obama!!!!!!!!!
For me? Mussolini and Hitler?!?!?!!? The Bipartisan Fourth Reich of The Progressively New World Order!
Yet, somehow, both Ben Rhodes and David Samuels, the author of this Times article, prefer to speak in terms of modern day fiction when it comes to delivering Barack Obama to the world.
Samuels asks of Ben Rhodes, “What novel is this that you are living in now and will exit from in eight months and be like, ‘Oh, my God’?” I ask him.
And Rhodes replies with a question,“Who would be the author of this novel?”
“The one you are a character in now?”
“Don DeLillo, I think,” Rhodes answers. “I don’t know how you feel about Don DeLillo.”
“I love Don DeLillo,” I (Samuels) answer.
“Yeah,” Rhodes answers. “That’s the only person I can think of who has confronted these questions of, you know, the individual who finds himself negotiating both vast currents of history and a very specific kind of power dynamics. That’s his milieu. And that’s what it’s like to work in the U.S. foreign-policy apparatus in 2016.”
The article continues with the claim that, generally speaking, Rhodes is “invisible”.
No one really knows about him!
Well, they certainly will if Obama continues his own personal revolution against traditional America.
Apparently Obama won’t be going anywhere without his translator or rather his personal play-doctor, Ben Rhodes.
I now recall Nazi euphemisms for concentration camps: Sonderbehandlung.
Which basically meant “execution”.
And one of Hitler’s favorites: “Lebensraum”.
That basically means an invasion of the rest of the world.
How has The New World Order done it? By politically, diplomatically and by any other verbal means possible created a “fundamental transformation” of all the nations in the world.
Shrinking all of them, including the United States, into smaller and smaller provincial corners of “Unions” that will inevitably comprise a Progressive New World Order ruled by The United Nations!
The European Union!
The North American Union!
Next week, of course: Part Five.
