The subject of yesterday's Epoch Times column, "When the S-Word Was Taboo," is something I have been thinking and writing about for a long time. The CNN anecdote appears in American Betrayal in the larger context of deception and self-deception in what we should think of as the socializing of  America, if not the Sovietizing of Ameria.

See below for what follows the introduction of thr S-word taboo (circa 2008) in the final pages of Chapter 1, American Betrayal.

No one in the mainstream media, liberal or conservative, wanted...

Once upon a short time ago, no one would say the S-word, "Socialist.” I know. I was there.  

It was a few weeks before the 2008 presidential election, when, during a televised campaign stop in Ohio, Candidate Obama broadcast his belief in economic redistribution to "Joe the Plumber.” “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody,” Obama said. Abruptly, the “post-partisan” mask Obama wore throughout the campaign had slipped. Did it reveal the Marxist underneath? Did this would-be emperor wear antidemocratic clothes?

To anyone paying attention, the answers (yes and yes) were already obvious. We knew from Stanley Kurtz, for example, writing at National Review Online, on the eve of Obama’s first election in 1995 (he won an Illinois State Senate seat), Obama articulated his collectivist ideology:

I will not be providing comprehensive analysis of the Paris riots today; however, as I try to follow events, and the interpretations of events, I am continually nagged internally. Through the smoke and fire, we just can't see everything that appears to be going on -- green carbon/fuel tax riots that have ballooned into a violent movement against the annoying globalist tool Macron. Yes, there is something magical in watching riot police doff their helmets as maskless "yellow jackets" break into a rendition of La Marseillaise. But would these same patriotic singers then turn around and sack the Arc de Triomphe -- and burn and smash everything else they can set fire to and sledgehammer around the most exclusive (expensive) neighborhoods of Paris?

What would the Tea Party do? That...

A generation later, George H. W. Bush's many presidential speeches about the "new world order" are especially striking for a naive-sounding but rigidly ideological outlook with origins on the Utopian and Marxist Left. He saw what he wanted to see, and tried to use his awesome powers to force his "vision thing" into being. He did not succeed. No one does. What such "seers" do, however, is enable the tricksters, frauds and villains of the world to advance. We might start with Bill Clinton. 

What accounts for President Bush's posthumous popularity in the news media which shook off his presidency  like a Reagan hangover? Republican or not, Bush 41, like Bush 43, is now, in the Trump era, recognized as one of them -- the...

The syndicated column of mine reposted below first appeared in June 2014 -- exactly one year before Donald Trump overturned the collective political applecart and entered the race for the presidency.

It's funny how memory and chronology so often fail to mesh without a refresher course in the record. I had mistakenly come to believe that the "save the liberal world order campaign" had coalesced in the wake of America-First-Trump. Here we see it being set forth as a plan for a new kind of "bi-partisan" Bush-Clintonoid unity on the "liberal world order" between the necons in the GOP and the Clintonites in the Democratic Party -- the very same people who would later on style themselves as "Never Trump" and "the Resistance."  

Trump didn't have the effect of creating this creepy alliance of new world order-ites; his fight for the White House blew up their best-laid...
