In a book titled, The Anti-American Manifesto, Ted Rall, a cartoonist and contributor to both the New York Pravda (a.k.a. the New York Times) and Radio Moscow (a.k.a. National Public Radio) makes a passionate call for a violent revolution as the only way to solve America’s problems — which he compares to the four horsemen of the Apocalypse: wars, financial crises, unemployment, and oil spills. The book’s editors call it “the most radical book published in decades.”
Is Rall serious about launching a revolution to overthrow the government of the United States? Does he have his pitchfork ready for action? Apparently he has.
Rall foresees that the chaos that typically ensues after the collapse or overthrow of an empire will surely affect America. He thinks that whatever follows will likely be worse, at least for some time: “The Terror followed the French Revolution. Stalin’s purges followed the Russian Revolution.” Nevertheless, when it comes to what follows, Rall, like many would-be armchair revolutionaries, advises: “We must take the chance.”
According to some user-friendly reviewers, Ted Rall’s book is a new manifesto for an America heading toward economic and political collapse. But, while others grieve for the damage to the current American-style capitalist system created by the present global economic collapse, Rall sees it as a bright opportunity. He firmly believes that, as millions of people lose their jobs and their homes, they and millions more are opening their minds to the possibility of creating a radically different form of government and economic infrastructure.
But, he warns, there are dangers on that road. As in Russia in 1991, a bunch of criminals and right-wing extremists — Rall does not mention left-wing extremists — are ready to fill the power vacuum from a collapsed United States. So, the best way to stop them, he advises, is not collapse, but revolution. Not by other people, but by us. Not in the future, but now, while it is still possible.
I fully agree with Rall on one thing: after waiting for so long, things have deteriorated in America to a point that only a true revolution can fix it. His book, however, is the typical right book on a wrong goal. And the goal is wrong because it is based on false premises. The Left cannot fix the wrongs of the Right for the simple reason that the American Left is actually a mirage, an illusion created, nurtured and bankrolled by the most reactionary Right. If you dig just a little you’ll find that most of the funds supporting leftist organizations come — directly, but most likely indirectly, to hide the source — from the Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, Guggenheim, Annenberg, and other “charitable” foundations.
Evidently, Ted Rall belongs to the ranks of people who hate America. Granted, he is not the only one. Many people around the world hate America, and they think they have enough reasons for it. On the other hand, many Americans still don’t understand it, and ask themselves, “Why do they hate us?” and provide many somehow contradictory answers to the question.
A typical answer was provided in a Wall Street Journal editorial piece after 9-11 in which Arab business leaders were asked why they hate us. Their answer was, we hate you because you are blocking democracy, supporting brutal terrorist regimes, preventing economic development and enforcing poverty in Arab countries.
But this answers as well as all the answers to the same question provided by both the Left and the Right, including “because we are there,” are wrong. And they are wrong because the question has been improperly formulated, and you cannot get a right answer to a question when the question itself is wrong. The right question should not be “Why do they hate us?” but “Why do they hate us instead of hating them?”
As I mentioned above, the main reason why many people — including Ted Rall — hate us, the American people, is because of American imperialism. But I have lived for more than 30 years in this country. I have lived in the East, the West, the Midwest and the South. During these years I have met Americans of all walks of life, and I am still waiting to meet the first American imperialist. Probably I have not lived in the right places, or met the right people, but the fact is that true American imperialists are a tiny minority, mostly composed of Wall Street bankers, oil magnates, CEOs of transnational corporations, senior members of the military-industrial-academic complex, and the corrupt, opportunist journalists and politicians they have co-opted.
As Constitutional scholar Edwin Vieira, Jr., rightly pointed out, the so-called American “empire” is not America at all, but “the twisted, unconstitutional, unholy perversion of America that has been temporarily imposed upon WE THE PEOPLE by the globalists in our midst in aid of their own megalomaniac schemes for world hegemony.”
This small group of imperialist, corporatist conspirators ensconced at the Council on Foreign Relations and other similar organizations, not only secretly control America, but also the governments and major organizations of the world. This include the UN, the CIA the WTO, the WHO, the FDA, most universities, the Federal Reserve, most of the world's military, mass media, and religious organizations, and that is just a partial list.
In his book, Corporatism: The Secret Government of the New World Order, Jeffrey Grupp shows that corporatism is the real underlying issue from which literally all major human problems now and in the past have originated. The other issues people usually blame for the causes of humanity's problems (politicians, war, human nature, greed, religion, the educational system, etc.), are just symptoms of the real problem, which is corporatism. In his book, Professor Grupp proves that the United States is a corporatist nation on its way to becoming similar to the fascist and communist, totalitarian horror states described in books such as Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We, George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.
If this trend continues, in the near future America will be a full-fledged totalitarian police state that will ultimately merge into the corporatist global prison planet that Hitler was initially attempting to set up, the Russians tried and failed, and which is now being sold to us under the deceptive name the New World Order. Therefore, given the fact that fascism is basically a political system in which the state is controlled by corporations, and communism is the one in which the state controls the corporations control, a sure way to avoid both fascism and communism would be to abolish corporations and their hidden ideological hands, the so-called “philanthropic” foundations.
Moreover, there is growing evidence that most international corporations, who have joined the New Agers in blaming us for destroying Gaia, are actually the same ones who have been involved for more than a century in a concerted effort to destroy us human beings living on this planet. Therefore, if the goal of these multinational corporations is to destroy us, it would be a simple act of legitimate self-defense to do our best to destroy them first. Actually, what we need is an anti-Corporatist Manifesto, calling for a worldwide anti-corporatist revolution, not an anti-American one.
Back in 1956 Charlie Wilson, chairman of General Motors Corporation, said, “What is good for General Motors is good for America.” Granted, at the time General Motors, like other similar corporations, was a true American corporation. It operated mostly in the U.S. territory, employed American workers, and paid them decent salaries.
But today, neither GM nor any of the big “American” corporations is American anymore. Even though some of them still keep their headquarters in the U.S., they have become true transnational corporations. They have laid off well-paid American workers, closed their factories here, and are manufacturing their products abroad, using low-paid foreign workers or outright quasi-slave workers.
Therefore, now more than ever, it adds insult to injury that members of the U.S. armed forces are dying abroad protecting the interests of transnational corporations who are mostly contributing to the destruction of America. Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler rightly pointed out the dynamics of corporate empire when told members of American Legion in 1933, “There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.” Currently, however, it has become evident that the CFR-controlled U.S. government will not deploy the U.S. Army to stop the current invasion through the border with Mexico. Not only the U.S. Government is not defending our homes, but is also working hard to eliminate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Unfortunately, we, the American people, under the pretext of defending our national security, have been fighting all these years unnecessary wars to defend and protect the interests of them, a bunch of oil magnates, Wall Street bankers and CEOs of transnational corporations who see themselves as internationalists, hate America and despise the U.S. Constitution. These are the only imperialists in this country, not the American people. So, again, why do people all around the world hate us, the American people, instead of hating them, that tiny minority of people who don’t represent the American people?
The answer to the question could very well be that it is because, thanks to decades of brainwashing as the result of a psychological war that has obliterated and destroyed our spirit and consciousness, we, the American people, have lost our will to govern ourselves and have voluntarily allowed them to do it instead. It seems that a large majority of Americans now agree with David Rockefeller’s communo-fascist idea that “the supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination of the people practiced in past centuries.”
Now, why did Ted Rall write an Anti-American Manifesto instead of an anti-Rockefeller, anti-Bush, anti-Clinton, anti-Kissinger or anti-CFR Manifesto? One answer might be that he is totally confused, because these people, not the American people, are the ones who are behind the unnecessary wars, the current artificially created financial crisis and the unemployment, and have enslaved us with the their global monopoly on oil. Another reason may be that he is just a dogmatic, brainwashed fool.
Nevertheless, I suspect that the true, occult reason why Rall doesn’t mention the real enemies of America and the world is because the New York Times, National Public Radio and other media where Ted Rall publishes his cartoons and articles are fully under the control of this anti-American cryptocracy — the true secret government of this America Rall hates so much— and he will never bite the secret hand that feeds him.

2. A typical example of this symbiotic relationship between the extreme Left and the extreme Right is the National Council of La Raza (The Race), an extremist, racist, virulently anti-American organization based in Los Angeles, whose goal is “la reconquista,” that is, conquer the southern part of California and annexing it to Mexico. As expected, not only La Raza gets most of its founding from the Bill Gates (CFR) Foundation, the Ford Foundation and other foundations associated with the Council on Foreign Relations. Its Corporate Board of Advisor include AT&T, Bank of America, Chevron, Shell, Wal-Mart and other corporations — all of them CFR corporate members. Its Director for many years was CFR member Raul Yzaguirre.
