When it was announced by Wikileaks that they had evidence that painted a ‘dark’ picture of the Clinton’s and their inner circle, few imagined that there would be ties to the occult. Bizarrely, leaked emails include an invitation to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta from his brother Tony to a ‘spirit cooking’ dinner (archive).
The dinner was to be entertained by Marina Abramovic, a performance artist and author of a recipe book of bizarre foods including, “fresh breast milk with fresh sperm milk” and other ingredients including blood.
Members of the extreme left often reject mainstream religion and it should come as no surprise that they fill the void with bizarre and often dangerous beliefs.
As a former Labour party staffer (before becoming a Conservative) I have a detailed knowledge of the eccentric religious practices of left-wing politicians. However despite the often heinous nature of such beliefs it is often a weak political tactic to raise it because it sounds so outré as to be hard for ordinary people to accept.
Clinton staffers’ alleged links to the occult distract from (for example) her improper use of a private email server and her alleged visits to the Caribbean residence of fabulously wealthy convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein (archive). Ann Coulter in her book, “High Crimes and Misdemeanours”, forensically sets out in detail a wide variety of dubious financial and political dealings of both Bill and Hillary Clinton. As she says the problem with Whitewater is it was just so dull.
Throughout history leaders have often been easy marks for purveyors of occult knowledge – the key is in the presentation of purportedly special knowledge setting those who possess it above the common herd – in short reinforcing the egos of those concerned. Rasputin, for example, famously captured the heart of the Russian Tsarina.
Even so Podesta is by no means the greatest or worst link between Clinton and Satanism. Her 1969 college thesis was an analysis of the so-called, ‘Alinsky’ model, named for radical activist Saul Alinsky. Alinsky is best known for his book, “Rules for Radicals”, which sets out a blueprint for ruthless political tactics designed to overturn the existing social order.
The book begins with dedications and then, literally, a lengthy acknowledgement of Satan.
“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.
— SAUL ALINSKY”
Of course Clinton did not agree with all of Alinsky’s propositions, she felt ‘change’ had to come from within the system, whereas he felt it could only come from without. The problem is far deeper and the central flaw Alinsky and Clinton share is one they do indeed share with the fallen one –
“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall – Proverbs 16:18”
Alinsky and Clinton see themselves, as radicals, reformers, as rebels. Rebels against what? Society is the wrong they seek to change – a society gradually changed as human knowledge advanced over thousands of years. People in different ages and from diverse backgrounds created the Judaeo-Christian culture of the United States and indeed the United Kingdom.
The complex web of rules and obligations that makes up modern society has evolved as a pragmatic choice of the lesser of many evils in a complex and imperfect world. The arrogance of the left is to believe that they know better, based on often very superficial analysis or pure dogma. In the name of their beliefs they seek to tear down institutions that have lasted millennia. Family, marriage, religion – all evils in the eyes of the hard left.
The underlying problem of Hillary’s inner circle and the whole of the extreme left is pride – a sin they share with the one Saul Alinsky acknowledged in his book. Perhaps in this election it will – as it did in the past – go before a fall.
