Obama, Brzezinski, and the Neolib-Neocon Family Feud

By Kurt Nimmo

Let’s call Barack Obama what he is—a sock puppet for the ruling elite. Obama made this plainly obvious recently when he tabbed Zbigniew Brzezinski as his top foreign policy adviser.

In addition to his affiliations with the Council on Foreign Relations (as director), the Trilateral Commission, and the National Endowment for Democracy, Brzezinski was the architect of Carter’s Afghanistan policy, that it to say he is responsible for killing thousands of innocents and organizing the Afghan Arabs, later to become “al-Qaeda.” It is said David Rockefeller asked Brzezinski to create the Trilateral Commission and details were hammered out at Rockefeller’s Pocantico Hills estate outside New York City. Rockefeller later introduced the idea to the Bilderberg group in Knokke, Belgium in the spring of 1972.

As author Holly Sklar has noted, in “1973 the Trilateral Commission was founded by David Rockefeller, Chase Manhattan Bank chairman, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Carter’s national security advisor, and other like-minded ‘eminent private citizens.’ Some 300 members (up from about 200 members in 1973) are drawn from international business and banking, government, academia, media, and conservative labor. The Commission’s purpose is to engineer an enduring partnership among the ruling classes of North American, Western Europe, and Japan—hence the term ‘trilateral’—in order to safeguard the interests of Western capitalism in an explosive world. The private Trilateral Commission is attempting to mold public policy and construct a framework for international stability in the coming decades. Throughout this book, ‘trilateralism’ refers to the doctrine of world order advanced by the Commission” (Trilateralism: The Trilateral Commission and Elite Planning for World Management, Edited by Holly Sklar, South End Press, 1980).

“Upon reading the 1970 book Between Two Ages, David Rockefeller lured its writer, Professor Zbigniew Brzezinski, away from Columbia University to become the Chairman and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission,” writes Eric Barger (The New World Order Under Clinton: Establishment Insiders and Political Deceit, The Christian World Report, May 1993, pg. 7.) “Brzezinski, who later became the mastermind of Jimmy Carter’s foreign affairs and national security blunders, is still looked to as a policy guru by the liberal media today. Using the same socialist mindset, objectives and premise as the CFR, the TC sprang from, and was purposely patterned after, Brzezinski’s book in 1973.”

In other words, Brzezinski is a consummate insider and enthusiastic proponent of world government, that is to say he has worked long and diligently for the plan to transform the world into a corporate slave plantation and mega-sweatshop.

Thus it makes perfect sense Barack Obama, billed as one of “10 people who could change the world,” according to the New Statesman, has invited Zbigniew Brzezinski aboard, or rather was told by his globalist handlers to invite him. “For Brzezinski, 79, support for Obama means support for a radical change in direction of American foreign policy,” writes MSNBC. In other words, neolibs of Brzezinski’s ilk have lost patience with the chest-pounding neocons.

“These neocon prescriptions, of which Israel has its equivalents, are fatal for America and ultimately for Israel,” Brzezinski told Nathan Gardels, editor-in-chief of the journal of social and political thought published by Blackwell/Oxford and Global Services of the Los Angeles Times Syndicate/Tribune. “They will totally turn the overwhelming majority of the Middle East’s population against the United States. The lessons of Iraq speak for themselves. Eventually, if neo-con policies continue to be pursued, the United States will be expelled from the region and that will be the beginning of the end for Israel as well.” Naturally, neolibs of Brzezinski’s ilk prefer less obvious and immediately bloody measures. Moreover, the designs of Israel do not figure directly into the plan, a prospect horrifying to neocons and the AIPAC crowd.

“Neoconservatives and neoliberals are really quite similar, so it doesn’t matter who gets elected in 2008. The American public, weary of preemptive attacks, democracy-promotion, and nation-building, will still get war either way,” writes Philip Giraldi. As Ronald D. Asmus and Kenneth M. Pollack write for the CIA’s favorite newspaper, the Washington Post, “Neoliberals, among whom we number ourselves, believe in political preemption first and military preemption only as a last resort. We supported the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq because we concluded that force was the only way to lance these boils. But force will not work as a normal tool of policy or social engineering in the Middle East. Our goal must be to have the Arabs embrace democracy and modernization, not to force it down their throats.”

In other words, the neolibs believe in the tried and true method of making certain corrupt leaders are installed—consider, as primary examples, the Shah of Iran, Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and the monarchies in Saudi Arabia and Jordan—and accomplishing what the neocons are slogging through by way of proxy, albeit less dramatically and at a slower pace. Of course, the main difference is that the Israel-centric neocons, like their Jabotinskyite collaborators, hate Arabs and Muslims, whereas the neolibs are indifferent and far more interested in doing the bidding of the bankers, the IMF and World Bank, transnational corporations, that is to say advancing the process of “free trade” (as in unhindered looting and plunder) as well as ushering in world government, a process long envisioned by Brzezinski’s mentor, David Rockefeller.

Thus we should expect Foreign Policy Passport, a blog sponsored by Foreign Policy, the monthly magazine published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, to declare Obama “the next JFK,” echoing Ted Sorenson of the New Republic. As should be expected, the elite at Carnegie have their reservations. “But the real question is, which John F. Kennedy? The young dynamo remembered favorably by Sorenson and revisionist historians? Or the inexperienced son of privilege who botched an invasion of Cuba and brought the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation? The jury is still out.” Actually, the CIA botched the Cuba invasion and more or less kept Kennedy in the dark, as Peter Kornbluh notes in Bay of Pigs Declassified: The Secret CIA Report on the Invasion of Cuba (New Press, 1998), even though Kennedy had an unhealthy obsession with Cuba and the prospect of assassinating Fidel Castro.

Obama’s adding Brzezinski to his campaign reveals a widening riff between the neocons and neolibs as the U.S. moves toward the 2008 selection process. As Brzezinski has warned, tellingly tipping his hat, the neocons are not above staging yet another terror attack in order to get their way and bomb Iran, a prominent target on their list of countries to be flattened and reduced to “failed states” by way of depleted uranium.

As if to signal how dire things are for the neocons, Harvard Law professor—and advocate of torture and humiliation of Arabs and Muslims—Alan Dershowitz has thrown in his two cents in regard to Brzezinski. “It is a tremendous mistake for Barack Obama to select as a foreign policy adviser the one person in public life who has chosen to support a bigoted book,” Dershowitz recently declared, mentioning the Walt and Mearsheimer volume on the Israel lobby, that is to say the prime movers, along with the Jabotinskyite fanatics in Israel, of the neocon version of things. In order to balance the deck, Obama—again, his handlers—have inserted former Middle East envoy Dennis Ross and veteran congressional staffer Dan Shapiro, both staunch Israel supporters.

No doubt, come November of next year, a few sparks will fly, although nothing of substance will change.

    I don’t see an author’s name attached to this inaccurate piece. For actual information on this topic, see:

    Whover wrote this piece is apparently relying on magazine articles for his information. The violence against civilians was committed by Reagan’s peoiple. Brzezinski and Carter had nothing to do with it. Please retract this nonsense at all of the links to which the piece was posted in the name of integrity and usefulness.

  2. emperorsgrave says:

    I did not find the original entry factually inaccurate, though I do find the statement “Brzezinski and Carter had nothing to do with it” inaccurate. Yes, Reagan has plenty of blood on his hands, but that in turn does not make Brzezinski innocent. I won’t go into the theory that Brzezinski baited the Soviets into invading Afghanistan, though I think it is supported. I will merely paste in a section of President Carter’s last State of the Union Address from 1980, and you can be sure Brzezinski in large part wrote this section:
    “The region which is now threatened by Soviet troops in Afghanistan is of great strategic importance: It contains more than two-thirds of the world’s exportable oil. The Soviet effort to dominate Afghanistan has brought Soviet military forces to within 300 miles of the Indian Ocean and close to the Straits of Hormuz, a waterway through which most of the world’s oil must flow. The Soviet Union is now attempting to consolidate a strategic position, therefore, that poses a grave threat to the free movement of Middle East oil.

    This situation demands careful thought, steady nerves, and resolute action, not only for this year but for many years to come. It demands collective efforts to meet this new threat to security in the Persian Gulf and in Southwest Asia. It demands the participation of all those who rely on oil from the Middle East and who are concerned with global peace and stability. And it demands consultation and close cooperation with countries in the area which might be threatened.

    Meeting this challenge will take national will, diplomatic and political wisdom, economic sacrifice, and, of course, military capability. We must call on the best that is in us to preserve the security of this crucial region.

    Let our position be absolutely clear: An attempt by any outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf region will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America, and such an assault will be repelled by any means necessary, including military force.” -president Carter.

    Reagan continued Brzezinski’s strategy. It was about “vital interests” in the region before Reagan showed up, it is called “The Carter Doctrine” (I realize this isn’t a newsflash). I think importantly Brzezinski has criticized the Bush administration in its EXECUTION of the Iraq invasion, in its strategy; but not for WHY they invaded: oil, “vital interests”. He is in complete agreement, he merely thinks he has a better idea about how to bring it about. But this guy is scary, and yes I’ve read some of his books. I can guarantee it won’t take but a couple of them to get scared. I don’t feel very good about Obama now.

  3. nikky teen says:

    Also, and even funnier, the very article mach1 links to in order to demonstrate Brzezinski’s innocence begins with a Brzezinski quote about training the mujahadeen. Basically, it contradicts mach1’s claim that Brzezinski had nothing to do with it. You’d think he would have taken the time to read his own sources, especially as he insinuates the original post is ill-informed because they only read magazine articles. He can’t even read his own linked article, then lectures on integrity and usefulness. Tell me Mach1, which Brzezinski book should I start with, oh great reader of books?

  4. […] you are having your change festival, please ask Barack Obama which part of the Bush war plans, Obama’s advisor Brezinski will allow him to change. Brezinski in case you dont know wrote “The Grand Chessboard” […]

  5. Derek says:

    Why do people love Obama. Anyone who aligns themselves with someone who considered David Rockefellar a mentor and thinks a global government is a good thing is a poor choice for president in my book. And we can’t forget Obama’s plan for a UN global tax. WTF! McCain is no better. Ron Paul was our only chance. The media is too controlled and people are too stupid to elect someone promising like him.

  6. ObamaPhobe says:

    I agree that Ron Paul was our only chance.

  7. […] election because our favorite fascist pal Zbigniew Brzezinski has already won. Whether, Obama, who Brzezinksi serves as his chief foreign policy adviser, or McCain, who Randy Scheunemann, the successor to Henry […]

  8. csprissler says:

    A taste of The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives, by Zbigniew Brzezinski, which somebody mentioned above.

    “…To put it in a terminology that harkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together.” (p.40)

    This article was highly inaccurate. It is an irritating trend in journalism to complicate simple issues to the point of incomprehensibility. As far as I’m concerned there are no good guys left. Or rather, NBC (General Electric) went all the way to the supreme court to fight for their “right” to manipulate the election, by keeping good guys like Dennis Kucinich out of any debates. The rest of the good guys have met similar obstruction. Cynthia McKinney, Ron Paul, etc.

    But you Americans have something we Canadians lack… You can still vote for whomever you want, can’t you? Write in Ron Paul if you want him for president.

    Oh, PS, Brzezinski openly states that he wrote a letter to Carter, warning him that the creation of Al-Qaeda would destabilize the region and possibly start a war with Russia, but they went ahead and did it all the same. http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO210B.html

    Excerpt: “According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention….” (Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, Le Nouvel Observateur, 15-21 November 1998)

  9. […] devotion to a man who has proved himself a corrupt, big money, pro war candidate, people who know anything about him are cynical. You have to not look and just believe. You cannot vote independent or you […]

  10. sankhara says:

    Obama is a big money, pro war, puppet master.
    It is pretty sick the way he uses race and religion to bind people to a pro war big money agenda, under the cover of grass roots little guy sympathy. What about Nader? Have you been checking out the alternative debates? The alternative VP debates will be this Sunday.

  13. Delia Reed says:

    Boy this choice of graphics is really hard to see!, I keep erring on this comment because I can’t even see the areas I need to fill in!

  14. Matterofact says:

    In an interview for “Le nouvel observateur” january 15 1998, a french publication M.Brzezinski confesses that he was in agreement for a covert CIA operation in Afghanistan, that president Carter authorized july 3th 1979, assisting the opposition to the pro-soviet Kaboul regime, favoring the odds for the russians to attack & they took the bait 6 months later. He also said in the interview that this secret operation was an excellent idea since it atracted the russians in a trap, giving them a “Vietnam”, an unsustainable & demoralizing war that shattered their empire. He financed Bin Laden, the moudjahidines & the Taliban. He didn’t believe that islamic fondamentalists were a threat because they are not really unified.

  15. Matterofact says:

    Nowadays Mr.Brzezinski has changed his tune, in his last book he says “it will take years of deliberate effort and genuine skill to restore America’s political credibility and legitimacy,” placing enormous importance on the diplomatic and strategic skills of the next president” to fashion a truly post-cold war globalist foreign policy. Nothing could be worse for America, and eventually the world than if American policy were universally viewed as arrogantly imperial in a postimperial age, selfishly indifferent in the face of unprecedented global interdependance, and culturally self-righteous in a religiously diverse world. The crisis of American superpower would then become terminal.” Are these the words of a truly repentant and haunted neolib? My other question is, is it too late for America and the world to repair the damages blindly done? Because there is a unbelievable cost to those accmulated mistakes besides the priceless blood that was shed but also the mind blowing the secret debt of $1,005,600,000,000,000 ( you are reading right, quadrillion )that few people, even politicians are aware of. This is far beyond the world’s assets. A chess game Mr.Brzezinski no one can win!
