The single most important story of the Obama years

This is the single most important story in the last eight years. It involves the utterly absurd and bizarre way in which American foreign policy is made, and the absence to an infinite degree of the media as a check on government. It explains better than anything I have read why the Western world is finished and done. If you are not on top of this story, you have no serious conception about how deranged the world in which you live actually is.

I have discussed it already – The Obama White House counted on the ignorance and stupidity of the media – but my impression from the lack of interest and the comments is that no one thinks of this as anything very much at all and I don’t just mean here but everywhere. Perhaps there is a weariness in dealing with Obama and his lying that everyone just says, so what else is new? For me, however, this is one of the most clarifying stories I have ever read since what it says is that there is literally nothing that a party of the left can do that will cause outrage. Literally nothing at all. And the blame here cannot be landed on the left, but on the right, who has no idea how to fight and so far as the party administrations on the right are concerned, are of zero use at all. If anyone can read this and then worry about Donald Trump, they are too hopelessly gone. We will deserve what we get if the one lifeline we are finally thrown is rejected. All of the following are different takes on this same story.

What I cannot fathom is why this is not the single most debated issue on the conservative right side of politics. There are thirty-seven stories that I have collected to go with my own which are listed in the order in which they were found. Everyone sees how sensationally incredible this is, but no matter how much tinder there is, it is obviously not possible to generate genuine heat about any issue since it will never enter in any way into the mainstream media and therefore into popular consciousness. This is the world we are in. And this is the problem we are facing on the right if we cannot find a means to break through and have a scandal of such dimension recognised for what it is. You really do have to appreciate that Rhodes could say without any concern that he, a failed novelist, is the single most important influence on Obama’s foreign policy and have it confirmed by others in the White House. And I regret to say that even those among us who read these blogs don’t see this as the absolute beyond the pale scandal it is because they didn’t read it on a front page or see it repeated on the news for three nights in a row.

    No. It just means your posts of late are long and boring, so people don’t read them. And people don’t read, they can’t judge whether the actual story is a big deal or not.

  2. Harald

    Everyone else is too busy at the moment establising their moral and intellectual superiority by rejecting Trump.

  3. BorisG

    Steve, I have now read your previous post. You take one overblown article and try to explain the whole foreign policy. This is stupid. Anyone who at least vaguely follows Obama foreign policy knows it is not stupid, armature or whatever. It is a pretty consistent policy, to the extent that circumstances allow it. I sharply disagree with his policy on many fronts, but it is consistent. If you want, read something serious like this: http://mosaicmagazine.com/essay/2015/12/our-man-in-moscow/ not some fringe blogs.

    It was always obvious that Barack Hussein was surrendering to Iran and arming it ith nuclear weapons, largely because he sees Tehran as a necessary counterbalance to the Jews he so famously loathes. In his small, deranged mind Barack Hussein probably sees a nuclear Iran forcing historical concessions and backdowns by Israel over ‘Palestine’ and thereby ushering in an era of ‘accommodation’ regionally, all further interventions by the US rendered impossible because of the nuclear Sword of Damocles being held above Israel’s neck.

    Kates has got it wrong again. The usual bone headed analysis of government by a Hayekian who has little or no experience in actually working in government. Go and read Allison’s analysis of the Cuban crisis and you might learn something instead of presenting your usual anti governmemt/obama bullshit rants.

  8. BorisG

    In his small, deranged mind Barack Hussein bla bla bla

    Broadly speaking this is policy of the Democratic Party. It is not a specific to Obama. In fact many liberals regard Obama’s policies as too hawkish… He is not deranged, just as Marx and Lenin weren’t deranged. But they are dangerous.

  11. A consistent policy can be stupid and amateur.

  12. New York City Transiter

    This is a classic example of post modern “mythologies”. Rhodes is clearly an epic late post modernist in his thinking. He’ll no doubt make Wilbur Smith look a little boring when his writing career takes off. Post modernism can only go so far before collapse. We’re on the verge of this now. Trump is the first crude and barely acceptable face of the new political order taking shape. A catalyst of sorts.

    Obama has been busy applying lipstick to his senescent presidency. One wonders whether Rhodes recent appearance on the media stage is not a strategic post modernist gesture to deflect and diffuse some of the infamy directly attached to a president who believes in very little other than his own putrid mythologies.

  13. Steve, it was all centred on a florid, clever-me NYT article, the sort of overblown dreck one has come to expect from the failing Gray Lady.

    Nobody is letting Bomber Barry off any hooks, but more than a few of us find the NYT just as smug, shifty and insufferable as when their star journo Walter Duranty was pumping the tyres of the worst man or earth. We’re not ignoring the problem, just the silly, snobby rag that’s reporting on the problem and likely giving false weight all over the place for the sake of its “narrative”.

    Yes, NATO and the US have gone from bad to worse in foreign policy. The hopeful balkanising or haphazard shredding of nations has been going on since Hillary’s hubby bombed Serbia with Hillary clapping loudest. (She likes blood and biff, does Hillary, and doesn’t need to win so much as play.)

    The problem was stated most clearly by that dangerous radical Dwight Eisenhower: the persistence of a military industrial complex and the rise of technological elites. I’m sure lots of climate botherers and arms manufacturers have dropped a few threepences into the Clinton Foundation for Chelsea’s Christmas puddings over the years. Let’s find out about all that from the fearless and forensic navel contemplators of the NYT.

    Yesterday I watched footage of Malcolm explaining how Syria and Iraq were needing to be dismantled. Curiously, he’s taught himself to pronounce fancy words like Alawite but not words like Qatar pipeline. This is far more alarming than the real or misreported blusterings of Rhodes, who may just be one of Barry’s late middle-age infatuations. Hillary’s violent, angry nature is far more alarming again.

    So yeah, for us neo-peacniks it has to be a punt on Trump. I guess.

  14. I’m biased, by the way, since the West Virginia thing.

    After all those years of hearing the words “durrrrrdy coal” rolled over the Gillard adenoids, when someone promises to revive coal my heart goes flutter. If only Trump would sort out his differences with the Koch brothers he’d be my hero for sure. Sort of. Maybe.

    Just don’t ask me to like him yet. Give that time, okay?

  15. Tor

    Steve,

    At this point in the cycle of political degeneracy, we have a choice between sucking it forever or taking direct action. Real-name squabbling on the internet just makes an early target of us for the authorities.

    As for the US, people like me are keeping our heads down, quietly stocking up on ammo, anonymously sticking it to these scum at street level, and otherwise preparing (and wishing) for a catalysing moment of egregious government over-reach.

    Given the government’s clever long-term frog-boiling exercise, maybe it’s already too late. I don’t know.

    Beyond that, I really enjoy your writing but, as for your present item, it’s hardly news that Obama’s foreign policy is crafted by well-connected incompetents who loath the US, its history and its citizens. We’ve had eight years of it already. The details are just details.

    Regards

    Tor

    I had hoped that the USA was going to use Iraq as a base to attack Iran, and also to put the frighteners on Syria – which did a lot to funnel jihadis into Iraq – but it was not to be. They got caught up in what proved to be futile nation building.

    Iran remains unfinished business, and it will never be a friend to the USA or the west again until it’s under more secular management.

  17. Herodotus

    From Steve’s link, Richard Fernandez ends on this note:

    “The fundamental mistake of the policy establishment (which Ben Rhodes derisively calls “the blob”) was to take the Obama administration seriously, to think that terms like “grand bargain” and regional realignments were serious concepts and to spend hours pondering their meaning. Instead we now know they were just phrases that Obama and his inner circle made up as they went along. Thus a White House that should have been instantly destroyed by contempt was instead preserved by the wariness of those who thought they were facing a Professor Moriarty rather Bluto from Animal House.

    Perhaps the only person who guessed the truth — besides Clint Eastwood — was Vladimir Putin. Some instinct told the Russian that inside the suit there was nothing. He’s treated Obama accordingly and that’s been the secret to his success ever since. Malice or incompetence? Moriarty or Bonhoeffer’s empty stupid? The reason the Washington policy establishment likes to believe Obama is some cunning schemer is that otherwise they’ll never live it down.”

  18. LeftRightOut

    The media [collective] will never criticise Obama, not just because they’re ideological bedfellows, but because he’s black.
    He has cultivated a massive racial divide since taking office and been assisted in doing so by media left. In an age of the “black lives matter” movement, the “occupy” movement, safe spaces, censorship and no platforming on campus etc, any criticism of Obama would nominally be portrayed as racist by the virtue-signalling social justice warriors.

    We’d better learn quickly, that this mass [SJW] hysteria has not petered out, and it’ll be used to install Hillary come November (the same phenomenon explains Malcolm Turnbull’s installment). Just look at the way they handle Trump compared to Hillary, the fact that she can be a candidate at all defies comprehension. She Trumps Trump as it were, in “oppression poker” and therefore is insulated. The media nowadays are convinced that Twitter represents real-life opinion, and have become intoxicated with their follower base and will not do anything to risk said followership. Hence, they’ll continue to virtue-signal, regardless of how nonsensical their position is, they’ll join the vacuous chorus of imbeciles fighting for the right for transvestites to use whichever toilet they decide suits them, and they’ll continue to advocate for such stupidity to rapturous virtual applause.

  19. The previous GOP administration featured Karl Rove, who famously boasted that Dubbya’s foreign policy team manufactured its own “truth”, and pooh-poohed those still in the reality-based community. The Times’ attempt to paint Rhodes as the new Rove is rather weak. The professor doth protest too much.

  20. stackja

    MSM lost the plot in the 1960s and the gullible vote in ignorance.
    Australia voted in Gough.
    USA voted in Clinton/Obama.

  21. “Speaking to the graduating class of Washington, D.C.’s Howard University, President Barack Obama emphasizes that his election hasn’t created a “post-racial society” despite improved race relations.

    Obama is an industrial strength liar. In the classic socialist mould, the ends always justify the means. Socialism is defined by a falsehood, that taking away property rights and expecting people to struggle for the benefit of the common good will create utopia. Reality has shown it creates poverty on a grand scale.

    The entire sordid socialist experiment is sugar coated in noble grand visions of universal equality, multiculturalism and Obama follows the classic socialist utopian path, say whatever it takes to move towards a material equality.

    Obama’s minions consider themselves the socialist elite: above everyone, smarter than everyone and their dishonesty doesn’t bother them at all. We are too stupid to come the right conclusions by ourselves.

    The real motives behind the Iran deal? was it a counterpoint to the saudis, or the j–s, or simply that his dad was almost certainly a shiite? who knows, but whatever they are it has nothing to do with what we are told. In the minds of Obama and his minions they are on the path of righteousness towards universal government and equity.

    Obama while preaching his compassionate socialism treats us all with absolute contempt. This irony never seems to permeate into his consciousness or that of any of his rabble.

  22. Monty you planning to self-immolate in solidarity with your nauru muslim mates?

  23. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    There are always Rasputins around for the weak and febrile, like Obama. But a lot more than that is going on in US foreign policy. It’s a morass of conflicting interests with ad hoc decisions leading to even worse ones. That’s the usual Democrat wooliness in play there, which Putin uses to his own ends.

    And Obama has played the race card very well with his cultivated racial divide as LeftRightOut notes above. That takes care of all internal big media complaint and ensures that the European media also stays friendly. If Clinton gets in we can be sure of a Gillardian Misogyny Special from her too as a protective shield.

    No wonder Trump looks good (enough), just to break this cycle of cultural stupidity.

  24. David Archibald

    Steve, we have a Liberal federal government actively promoting homosexuality in the nation’s high schools. In the hierarchy of outrages, that rates higher. Obama is on his way out. President Trump will pull out of Afghanistan. We spent the last seven years in Afghanistan because this was Obama’s good war and not the bad war in Iraq. And the collapse of the thieving government after pullout would be too embarrassing. It was very disappointing of Cosgrove to visit Afghanistan. I know he was visiting our troops but he should have avoided meeting the Afghani president.

    Back to Obama. The world created by the neocons was not sustainable. Afghanistan’s population is up 50% since the US got involved in 2001, even though the natives prefer sodomising boys to sex with mature women. Even when the Russians were there and everyone was stepping on landmines, population growth didn’t fall below 2% per annum. The rest of the Middle East is the same. The number of Syrians on the planet has most likely gone up since 2011 despite the civil war. Obama brought forward the end of the game of musical chairs in the Middle East, a process that will accelerate under Trump. The food that sustains the Moslem world comes from the US, Europe and Russia.

  25. Robert Crew

    My takeaway from the NYT article was that this transgenius (although not biologically a genius, he self-identifies as one) has pushed Obama into tearing up US alliances with Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, in favour of a nascent alliance with Iran. That is the real story.

    Funny how some of the commentors above are now calling the New York Times “Hayekian” and a “right-wing blog”. That’s cognitive dissonance in action. A couple more taps and you can shatter their worldview.

  26. Steve Kates. Well you’ve certainly brought something out of the darkness, have you not?
    You are, in fact, quite correct: The MSM is full of know nothings whose dream of being played in a movie by Keanu Reeves is forever lurking just out of reach. They live in a self referential mirror land, where reality is spoon fed to them by a narcissist and his criminal horde in the White House who they worship. Their conviction of their own moral rectitude is unassailable. The MSM deems itself above criticism by those it judges as less than itself, and fails to even comprehend it is unable to live to the professional standards it screechingly demands of others.
    The current reporting class decided years ago that it was more ego satisfying to be a player in politics, rather than the historical neutral recorder it professes to be. It is the Democratic Achilles Heel, and it is bringing/facilitating the destruction of the society it depends on for its survival.

  27. Ant

    The Obama White House counted on the ignorance and stupidity of the media

    And their ideological partisanship, and that was/is fundamental to any political racket succeeding.

    Accounts from Soviet Gulag survivors told of hardline Communist Party faithfuls being incarcerated on the mere suspicion of being “counter-revolutionaries” and how they came to terms with it as an unintended consequence of the collective taking the path to the ‘ideal society’.

  28. The world created by the neocons was not sustainable.

    What a load of garbage: a) that the necons created a specific “world” and that b) US superiority and its role in global stability is unsustainable.

    Steve

    What I cannot fathom is why this is not the single most debated issue on the conservative right side of politics.

    Well – other than your continued confusion that the ‘journalists’ of the mainstream legacy media don’t share your enthusiasm for days of front page, news lead-in on the Obama adminsitration – what specifically would you like to debate ?

    Here – I’ll kick off:

    Upon inauguration, President Trump:

    Arrests Barrack Obama for treason and has his White House policy staff summarily imprisoned.

    He tears up the Obama agreement with Iran; and

    Gives Tehran 24 hours to commence dismantling its entire nuclear infrastructure before the US starts levelling the country; and

    Requires all media outlets to have at least one daily story on the serial outrages of the Obama administration for the next four years – such stories to be posted by a qualified Cert IV conservative.

    Discuss.

  30. AP

    The problem is that nothing changes when the right is in power. So people are very disillusioned. You know, take for example the Road Transport “Safety” Tribunal. Why wasn’t that abolished on day 1 of a conservative government? Why was it allowed tonget to the state where 35,000 people were about to be bankrupted?

    The republicans control both houses in the US government yet nothing has changed.

  31. classical_hero

    Do we need to discuss that the sky is blue?

  32. Robert Carruthers

    Steve, I suspect it’s because ignorance and incompetence are becoming the new norm. Yves put it well:

    “Rhodes, 38, said in the article that it was easy to shape a favorable impression of the proposed agreement because of the inexperience of many of those covering the issue.
    “All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” he said. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo. Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”

    Sound familiar? This happens not just in “journalism”, but across many industries (and government), largely driven by economic considerations and factors. Legacy knowledge has been forced out, new (often lesser-paid) hires lack context and experience, and are under pressure to produce without doing more than cursory research. On top of that, social media increases the rate at which ideas promulgate, stunting their depth and growth.”

    It’s occurring at all levels. From Presidents and Prime Ministers to lowly customer service operative. The latter tend to be very friendly, but profoundly ignorant and consequently not very helpful. The former, at least in the English speaking democracies, are often superficially more appealing than their predecessors, but lack the substance. By superficial I mean their physical appearance, not character, intellect or wisdom.

  33. Rayzor

    Thanks Steve.
    There is many who do not have the intellectual insight to grasp was is being reported by the articles you referenced. This sounds incredibly snobbish does it not? But, the future will eventually reveal to most that the effect of cultural marxism utilising social control by Govt, Corporations, the wealthly and Islamic ideologues and finally the technically, financially, facebook, twitter distracted classes (inc many of the uni elites), is to send the world into a fractuous existence. The closest parallel that I can see in contemporary artistic renditions is the the Termininator series – minus the back to the future elements.
    The rise of the machines is code for the doctrinaire rigidity that is built into the followers of the cult. They are automatons! Intellectural discussion is not possible. It is substituted by the unintelligable pseudo intelligent authors such as referred to by Roger Scruton in “FOOLS, FRAUDS and FIREBRANDS”. To not heed now the very prominent warnings that are there now is to condemn our children to have to fight in future revolutions to re-gain what ever we have had as democracy with freedom from hunger and oppression.

  34. Toiling Mass

    The MSM were not regurgitating WH press releases 8 years ago.

    Even the modicum of effort required to find some one to rubbish the press releases from a Republican WH is infinitely beyond them now.

    They will have no idea where to turn if Trump gets in.

  35. Tel

    What I cannot fathom is why this is not the single most debated issue on the conservative right side of politics.

    Because just about everyone falls into one of these categories:
    * Already understands the deal, and not a whole lot more to say about it.
    * Rusted on Obama supporter who really doesn’t care what he does… because free stuff an da equalidy!
    * Disinterested, “I’m not into politics”, stuff happens and gonna ignore it and go their own way.

    The problem is that nothing changes when the right is in power. So people are very disillusioned.

    Yeah, that’s right… and that’s probably why the category of disinterested people is growing, as well as the category of interested but highly cynical people.

  36. cohenite

    The iran bomb deal, Benghazi and the Arab Spring, which must be the oxymoron of the century, are all entwined. They are a product of the elitism of obuma and his ilk and the futility of granting any concessions to or compromise with islam. Along with his idiocy about alarmism, also a trait of his ilk, the iran weaponising are sufficient reasons to vote for the T.

  37. tmg

    It was on the front page of Drudge for >24 hours.

  38. gowest

    Steve – your fundamental problem is assuming that the free world is still free. Read Richard J. Maybury – The useful idiots have been teaching socialism since the 60’s and their students in the free world government’s have gone insane trying to manage unchecked power. Chaostan is sucking wealth out of the free world and Obama is the one giving it away. The media learned their attitudes in the same schools so they relentlessly push the “government knows best” in the press whilst saying better government is needed. Typical! – more government will solve our problems… on and on they go. When the sit-down money runs out there will be reckoning.

  39. thefrollickingmole

    Most reporters are lazy buggers who are happy to stick their name under any press release with a few “its reported’ or ‘sources say” then go to the pub for a few beers cafe for an artisan tofu latte.

    They are now a professional; class, and have been taught that the only information that counts is stuff given to them by other professional class members.

  40. Luke

    Well lets face it Steve, he knew he could get away with it because in order for it to become a major scandal/story the media would need to admit how easily duped they were.

    @thefrollickingmole You know most press releases from Ministers actually already have the ‘Minister’s quotes’ in quotes, even weeks beforehand. They are often written as if by a reporter reporting on the Minister giving a press conference.

  41. I stand by what I said above, Steve.

  42. Violet Pimpernel

    It took some time but the story is now all over Fox news, and the other news outlets are onto it. It seems the trigger was Rhodes derogatory comments about journalists (which were not entirely without foundation). But the lying aspect of the matter is also receiving significant attention.

    Instinct suggests Obama is torching his lieutenants to save his reputation as his government and its authority unravels. One can see this becoming a huge scandal due to the Iran implications.
