This seventh article is the last in the series I’ve been writing from John T. Flynn’s 1949 book, The Road Ahead, so I’m going to attempt to pull a few pieces together and I believe with all the turmoil in the Middle East, it is time to dust off the article about Ishmael and Isaac from the Old Testament. Also, the number seven has a religious meaning in the Word of God, one of which is completeness. Bible thumpers can check their Concordance for other “seven” examples.
Grant Jeffrey in his 2006 book The Next World War, the roots of Arab Muslim Hatred says the enmity between Ishmael and Isaac has come home to roost. Satan hates the Jews because God selected Israel to be His chosen people and they hate America because it’s always been a friend to Israel. Grant also said the silence of Bible prophecy about America’s future role in end-times even suggests that something will occur that will prevent the U.S. from continuing to act as the world’s leading superpower. Geoff Metcalf says perhaps one of our tragic flaws is our unbridled fairness that has been corrupted by the cancer of “political correctness” to the point we put ourselves at risk rather than create even the perception of prejudice so we’ve allowed enemies among us.
We do indeed seem to have a death wish based on open borders, no profiling, communist leaders in our unions, communist professors, government officials and even church pastors preaching Liberation Marxist theology under the banner of “social justice.” Before it was eliminated by the “communist infiltrators” the Committee on Un-American Activities tried to bring to the public’s attention seemingly laudable social objectives by 1160 organizations and movements brought into existence by the American Communist Party.
A friend reminded me of Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV): “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.” David Horowitz, a former Communist wrote in his 1997 book Radical Son “We made our decisions collectively, and had a religious fervor toward the positions we took and the slogans that defined them. In preparing for political actions, we identified the correct political ‘line,’ and united behind it in a force that was able to overcome most opposition.”
The United Nations “Peace” Keepers were finding quick flights from what is happening in Egypt and as I’m drafting this article, even the “experts” are confused but some type of orchestrated attempt to disrupt the 57 Muslim countries seems obvious – many of them surrounding Israel. How many readers remember Obama’s Freudian slip when he referred to the 57 United States in one of his speeches?
In the O’Reilly interview before the February 6th Super Bowl, President Obama said Egypt wants a “representative government.” I laughed because America no longer has a genuine “representative government” since Congress passed the U.N. Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 under President FDR and then Republican President Richard Nixon in 1972 placed Revenue Sharing funds in the hands of the “Socialist Regional Planners.” Flynn said the “Socialist Planners” were in control of the American labor unions that became a part of the political engine known as Americans for Democratic Action that were expected to sit at the center of this Fabian Revolution to guide its destinies and bring all the elements of popular support together in the U.S. At that time in 1949, its immediate drive was for socialized medicine and public housing. We’ve seen the boondoggle of public housing. It’s taken sixty years but now Obama has given us socialized medicine and waivers to the unions.
In Part 2 I referred to Fabian Socialism’s “turtle” reflecting slow movement toward objectives that might take a hundred years. I failed to attribute that symbol to Orwell’s 1984 book that provided the cornerstone for the biting satire against the Fabians. A reader said the actual symbol for the Fabians is the more appropriate wolf in sheep’s clothing as shown a number of times on the Glenn Beck T.V. program.
Flynn says the Communist Party seeks by artfully and very intelligently planned programs to create as much discord and disorder in our social system as possible. For instance it has created innumerable organizations – Communist front organization that bear attractive and humanitarian (politically correct) names, ostensibly set up to promote the interests of some racial, regional or class group but actually to arouse them, to make them angry, to stir up divisions and hatred among these groups all in the name of reinventing Democracy. In Egypt there are no uniforms or different colored faces but thousands are throwing rocks at each other. Is the Muslim Brotherhood behind this? How on earth do they know who is a friend and who is a foe or is it primarily for U.S. media consumption? Millions others are hunkered down in their homes waiting for the chaos to stop.
Although Muslim populations in the Middle East differ, Sharia laws rule them. The status of non-Muslim minorities under Islamic rule is called Dhimmitude. It is a historical concept to describe the legal and social conditions of Jews and Christians subjected to Islamic rule.
Brigitte Gabriel, an Arab Christian and a survivor of Islamic terror, was ten years old in 1975 and living in Southern Lebanon when militant Muslims from throughout the Middle East poured into her country and declared jihad against the Lebanese Christians. For seven years, Brigitte and her parents lived in an underground bomb shelter with no running water or electricity and very little food. She was a guest on the Sean Hannity (FOX) program on February 3 and she emphasized, “Learn a lesson, what is happening in Egypt is coming to America.” In her 2006 book Because They Hate she said “every public instance of ‘political correctness’ is dragged through the Arab world media as one example of just how wrong America is and how right the terrorists are and how the terrorist leaders repeatedly state that they will destroy the United Sates and Western civilization.
Muslims have been taking over Europe and in England Sharia courts are now officially part of the British legal system. Many neighborhoods in France are no-go areas for women without headscarves and a man caught drinking during Ramadan nearly died after being beaten up by radical Muslims in Brussels and in America there have been “honor killings” and other demands to accommodate the Islamic religion. The 12/2/2008 Insurance Journal reported Sharia-compliant finance has established a foothold in AIG’s American financial and insurance markets. www.dhimmi.org
Readers will recall that AIG was a recipient of a massive government bailout.
The British Socialist Party was calling for Revolution in 2008. Bit by bit we are seeing Islamic Socialism blending with other isms to form a Caliphate. I have heard many liberals/progressives express fear that the Tea Party folks could become a dangerous theocracy but seem to be oblivious about the caliphs, who claim succession from Muhammad. Bob Unruh in World Net Daily writes that dozens of nations dominated by Islam are pressing the United Nations to adopt an “anti-defamation” plan that would make Christians criminals under international law. Will “ethnic cleansing” be next?
Small groups are beginning to form in the U.S. with AFL-CIO, Code Pink and other revolutionaries all working together like they’ve been doing in the Middle East. In many instances, the members of these organizations are unaware what their leaders are promoting and may become the first casualties.
When President Obama and First Lady Michelle were traveling in 2009, he went to Arab Countries without Michelle who returned home to Washington, D.C. because it would have been a violation of Moslem Sharia law for her, as a woman, to be with him and when he made his speech in Cairo, Egypt which is now in total chaos, he touted Islam profusely. This was the first time any President of the U.S. enlisted a religion to establish global unity and peace and stressed the similarities of Islam, Judaism and Christianity – the latter two are considered “infidels” by radical Islam Muslims.
In 1949 when Flynn wrote his book, there was no hint of any religious aspect in the comparisons of the United States and England but he did mention the “Planned Paradise” once Socialism was opened for business because the word “profit” had sinister implications and our American free enterprise system has been painted as something wicked and bungling. “Paradise” reminded me of the claim by the radical Islamists where they go to collect their 70 virgins if they kill the “infidels.” Hannity had on his program on February 2nd a radical Imam by the name of Anjem Choudary, a judge of UK Sharia court and Hannity got him to agree this claim is true.
I noted in Part 6 that SEIU head, Andy Stern was given a seat on the board of SIGA Technologies and 25,000 stock options in June and shortly thereafter SIGA was awarded a drug contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services worth perhaps $2.8 billion. Ryan Grim at the Huffington Post said Stern went from leading one of the nation’s largest unions to working on behalf of organized labor’s historic enemy, private equity. R-I-C-H is O.K when the money is being “redistributed” into the pockets of some union leader like Stern, a frequent visitor to the White House.
Flynn had a chapter on how the Communists captured the unions but he quickly added that we should not be confused by this subject of Communist union infiltration and control because a great mass of labor unions were Socialist controlled and a part of these Socialist-controlled unions were of the Communist variety. He said the old traditional Socialist Party in America never made much headway with the labor unions because of the “socialist” label. However, what these radical labor politicians wanted was the officers, the funds, the educational machinery of the unions and once again Flynn said we see the propaganda apparatus being used on its own members who take very little part, as a general rule, in union affairs. They expect their leaders to fight for them for higher pay, shorter hours, better working conditions, pensions, unemployment insurance and, in general, a government officialdom which operates on the side of labor in all labor disputes and a government policy which includes all sorts of guarantees of perpetual employment, endless prosperity and government responsibility for the welfare of every working man. Flynn then says these things are not necessarily socialism but they are what might be called the first steps in a socialist program and conservatives have looked with amazement and frustration at the surrenders to the unions made by the leaders in both the Republican and Democratic parties and today, for instance, teacher’s unions expect their members to be out “leafleting” its propaganda the Saturday before an election.
President Obama in the interview O’Reilly had with him before the Super Bowl game talked about jobs. His address the next day to the Chamber of Commerce was similar and then the next thing we learn, he has set up a special unit to handle disputes of disgruntled employees with employers. When they call the Department of Labor, they are directed to a 1-800 number and connected to some trial attorney more than willing to make life hell on earth for some employer. One of the by-products of this alliance will mean votes for the appeaser in 2012, who is one conflicted dude!

In Part 4, Flynn said socialism didn’t mean the State would take over every farm. shop, mine and factory. It meant the State would take over and operate the great basic functions of credit, electric power, fuel, transportation and insurance, including the so-called welfare activities. Five thousands jobs were affected when the president stopped off-shore oil drilling in the Gulf to appease the environmentalists and now, according to Alex Jones, Obama is shutting down power plants from coast to coast.
Flynn said in 1949 the task before us was clear. We must return to our Constitution, to our Declaration of Independence, to our history and to the example set by our Founding Fathers. We must begin now to dismantle the Tyrant State in America and to build up once again the energies of a free people. Our leaders failed us and the storm clouds are building.
