DICTATORSHIP-TO-DEMOCRACY2-1024x512

 

Bryan Preston continued to expose more about the administration’s choice of documentation from Elizabeth O’Bagy, a strange choice for our administration to use as their reference for going to war. Today, she was released from employment with the Institute for the Study of War, as it was revealed that she does not have the claimed doctorate degree. We now know that she was also lobbying for the Syrian rebels, but there is more to explore about the associations of the Institute for the Study of War.

The Institute was founded by historian Kimberly Kagan, whose brother-in-law, Robert Kagan, has been a foreign policy advisor for John McCain. The Kagans’ association with McCain and his associates appears to have been a long one. Of particular interest is that Kimberly Kagan and John McCain have served together on the board of the “Spirit of America”, along with Peter Ackerman. Some may remember Peter Ackerman and Gene Sharp’s “waging nonviolence” theories as the basis for the techniques used in Egypt’s revolution, as taught to the Egyptians by Hillary’s State Department sponsored AYM (Youth Movements). We all know how peaceful that turned out to be and how well it has served us so far.

Previously joining them at “Spirit of America,” you will find the late Ambassador Mark Palmer, who worked with Ackerman on the Americans Elect movement and was himself active in the Color Revolutions. Palmer wrote the book, “Breaking the Real Axis of Evil: How to Oust the World’s Last Dictators Without Firing a Shot.” Always the peaceful rebel, he is listed as a founder of the radical Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1960, along with others such as Stokely Carmichael, Harry Belafonte, Julian Bond, Pete Seeger, Howard Zinn and more.

According to Wikipedia:

Palmer was possessed of practical experience inside dictatorships, working directly with dictators, and helping to oust them without a shot being fired.

From his days in the U.S. Civil Rights Movement as a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, through demonstrating in the streets of Budapest as ambassador, to marching with students in Belgrade against Slobodan Milosevic in 1996, Palmer witnessed and practiced the power of organized nonviolent force in achieving freedom and justice.

It would be hard to avoid the conclusion that we have a united network from both sides of the aisle who are working hard together to use the same “waging nonviolence” strategy (one might also call it “responsibility to protect” if that fits the situation better), in country after country, toppling dictators to establish their version of “democracy”.  In fact, that brings to mind a quote from Stephanie Rudat, a big fan of Gene Sharp and Peter Ackerman’s theories and one of the founders of the AYM:

“Toppling dictators is something I really like.”

Not so surprising that she and O’Bagy seemed to have discovered each other on Twitter for a lively Syrian policy discussion. Click on the image to enlarge:

No one is a big fan of ruthless dictators, but no one is a big fan of deceitful globalists trying to manipulate us, either. Judging from how well this has worked in Libya and Egypt, most people would be hesitant to think this is a great master plan, except perhaps for those whose investments will benefit most.
