You are about to jump into my new story, “BETWEEN OBAMA’S LINES – How We Almost Lost The Middle East,The Cold War, and The Atlantic Alliance.”
First degree. You will find out why the Middle East is essential to U.S. security, and the World as we know it. This sounds like a stretch, but it is not. I stopped the clock in mid-2014, when the Russian deck was stacked by Vladimir Putin, in President Obama’s plain sight. Events unfolded as expected, eerily so, and to this day, year-end 2018.
Second degree. The book flashes back to the Cold War era, when Communism in the U.S. was a real thing. Does this ring a new bell these days? We also forgot about the pan Arab threat, an on-and-off reality since the 7th Century. Have you been to Europe lately? On, or off? And do you know about the Russo-Islamic Alliance, Alexander Dugin, and Yevgeny Primakov before him?
Talking about this Alliance, I finished writing the book in 2015. Enough to make my point then. Interestingly, three short years later, on Communism, we now have some kind of revival, especially in Congress. Same on the pan Arab discourse, including BDS and that sort of things. This is no longer a pervasive after-thought confined to print media, like it was in the old times. It is stridently in the open, thanks to the no-thanks Social Media pundits, aka opinion “journalists.” Mark Twain must be rolling in his grave.
Third degree, and more importantly. This story proves the real collusion. Obama, Clinton, Putin. All of this happened under their watch. By “this” I mean the repudiation on the Truman Doctrine, and the takeover of the Middle East by Russia. That’s what the book is about. But you won’t find anything about Uranium One, the Clinton Foundation, Mueller et al. I didn’t know these things in 2015, or maybe I didn’t care. But whatever fuzz was in the picture then, it is becoming clearer by the day.
Some of my favorite truisms:
“If I know this, everybody does. But if I don’t tell you, who will?” Maurice P., 1928-2017.
“Fear not what you don’t know, but what you think you know.” My own version of some smart ass quote out there.
“Ha men pollois dokei taut age einai phamen.” In other words, “What seems right to many, we say it’s true.” Not from Goebbels but from Aristotle himself, as quoted by Arthur Schopenhauer in the Art Of Always Being Right.
And attributed to Marcus Aurelius, while not my favorite emperor, “The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”
With that, and a heap of salt, time to read“BETWEEN OBAMA’S LINES.” You might be surprised.
