U.S. “Democracy” Promoters Arrested in Eygpt
The IRI and the NDI are excrescences of the Republican and Democratic Parties respectively.
Yes, on the foreign-policy front, not much distinguishes America’s duopoly. Republicans and Democrats work in tandem, Saul-Alinsky style, to bring about volcanic transformation in societies that desperately need stability.
As far as America is concerned, Egypt’s road to majoritarian politics is stalled at the military dictatorship stage. While some may contend, uncontroversially, that this is preferable to a people’s republic governed by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party and the Salafist al-Nour Party, which won the ballot in the newly installed democracy – America is the ultimate arbiter.
both the National Democratic Institute and the International Republican Institute “are chartered to promote democracy abroad with [ostensibly] nonpartisan training and election monitoring.” “Loosely affiliated with the Republican and Democratic Parties,” these institutes “were created by Congress and are financed through the National Endowment for Democracy, which was set up in 1983 to channel grants for promoting democracy in developing nations.”
“In the last 20 years democratization has been a central, massively funded pillar of American foreign policy,” writes Amy Chua in “World On Fire: How exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability.”
The hypocrisy in all this is that we Americans do not live under the Athenian democracy seemingly promoted abroad. On the contrary, we the people labor under a highly evolved technocratic, militarized Managerial State, which is far more efficient in encroaching on its citizens than are the tin-pot dictators, who’ve been built-up into mega-monsters in infantile, Disneyfied minds.
Given the U.S.’s record-breaking incarceration rates, your average Egyptian under Mubarak or Libyan under Gadhafi was probably less likely than his American counterpart to be jailed, harassed or have a threatening encounter with the state’s emissaries.
Were Americans to run riot, as the spirited Egyptians have done pursuant to the Port Said stampede, they’d probably come face-to-face with the military. In contravention of the Posse Comitatus Act – and in furtherance of freedom, of course – the 2006 version of the National Defense Authorization Act allowed the Armed Forces to “restore public order” during “major public emergencies.”
The LaHood international incident the Times has framed as an expedient attempt by an Egyptian government that “faces public doubts,” “to rally support by stoking feuds with Washington.” But only the other day did “Pravda on the Hudson” concede “that several groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt,” received training from the three aforementioned outfits.
It is a fact – and three of the Republican presidential candidates will applaud it – that Washington fields community agitators, whose brief it is to unleash marauders for mobocracy all over the world. D.C. does so through NGOs, surrogates and other unwitting participants, confirms former State Department official Col. Lawrence Wilkerson.
“Purple” in Iraq, “Blue” in Kuwait, “Cotton” in Uzbekistan, “Grape” in Moldova, “Orange” in Ukraine, “Rose” in Georgia, “Tulip” in Kyrgizstan, “Cedar” in Lebanon, “Jasmine” in Tunisia, “Green” in Iran, still un-christened in Russia and Syria: Dig around and you’ll find LaHood à la Alinsky activists behind these “color-coded,” plant-based revolutions, blessed and backed by baby Bush and his non-identical, evil ideological twin, Barack Obama.
One cannot plant a seed they do not have.
A sad look into America’s eyes will tell of the sickness from the top to the bottom.
State and local governments are no different from the Federal lords.
Neither, are ‘Main Street/Mom-’n-Pop’ businesses any more ethical than Wall Street/Big Corporations.
And sadly, ‘religious’ people have ceded Truth, and their Freedom.
So, what will the ‘color’ of our hemlock be?

These dummies wanted a “Brotherhood” revolution, well they go it. Then they were not smart enough to get out and go home. Too bad for them. I do not have one oz of compassion for the meddlers.
Fret not, the solutions to the militarized managerial state, as well as all others, are available to all in the book DEMOCRACY-The God That Failed. All of you interested in actual liberty, read and spread the word!
Good God! One can’t fix a problem he doesn’t even know exists. And apparently ignorance and complicity are rampant among our “leaders” and would-be-conservative leaders as well. If the light of all unknown and unobserved truth was to be received all at once it would be blinding. Not only have the children of the “international communist conspiracy” (a fact, not a fiction) had their way in nearly all the institutions of society and government, but they’ve conspired together to make the taxpaying American public fund their spread of that poison to other nascent democracies. We, the public, are so out of the loop of what is being done to us and through us that we are like a blind-folded baby in a stroller being pushed toward a cliff. AN
RE Georgia decision; The “fix” is in. The public servants have been compromised, but I wouldn’t blame it on corruption but on serious fear. Remember, Chicago-style politicians bring a gun to a knife fight. They know someone who knows someone who knows someone, get my drift? All it takes is one phone call from a stranger who knows where you live, knows where your wife works and parks her car, knows where you children go to school, knows their names and schedules, can access your computer with hacking skills, change your bank balances, and who knows what else? There are plenty of crooks ready and willing to do politically and criminally crooked things to stop any attempt to stop Obama. This is probably just the beginning. Where fear holds sway, truth remains hidden. We need a fearless, wife-less, childless public servant in the mold of Sheriff Joe Arpaio to blow the lid off of this rotten, vermin-infested crap-can. AN
The Socialist have a secret agenda to slowly attach a form-fitting saddle to the back of the Spirit of Liberty and to become her master. They have the saddle of socialist policy, which, like the Health Care Bill, isn’t yours until you’ve already agreed to it sight unseen. They want to let you slowly get used to wearing that saddle, and then one day they will seek to ride you, tame you, be your master. “They mean to be a good master, but they mean to be master.”
