Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute found that “when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will ALWAYS be adopted by the majority of the society” (emphasis is mine). If this sounds frightening, Colonel Paul Linebarger’s “Psychological Warfare” sets the figure at only 2 percent: “The Communists had shown that an organization calling itself a party, actually a quasi-religious hierarchy with strong internal discipline, definite membership, and active organizational components, could control fifty times its own membership.”

Linebarger added that such a movement, known as “mass organization,” included women’s groups, labor sections, youth branches, and so on. This describes Organizing for Action, whose use of the President’s monogram as its logo suggests a “quasi-religious hierarchy.” The same goes for then-candidate Barack Obama’s use of a pseudo-Presidential seal during his 2008 campaign. This behavior is characteristic of absolute rulers such as Napoleon, whose monogram appeared on French Imperial Eagles, and must therefore be regarded as a threat to a free society. President Obama, and Attorney General Eric Holder, have reinforced this negative perception by using the resources of the Federal government to wage psychological warfare against the American people with regard to Trayvon Martin and climate change.

Mr. Obama engaged in race-baiting over the Trayvon Martin verdict by comparing him to the son he never had, and even to himself. He also attacked “stand your ground laws” by asking rhetorically whether Trayvon Martin could have used a weapon to stand his ground against George Zimmerman because Zimmerman’s surveillance made him uncomfortable. He knows as an attorney that no “stand your ground” law allows you to use any kind of force against somebody for making you “uncomfortable,” unless the discomfort is the physical kind that results from a violent assault.

Eric Holder’s Community Relations Service, meanwhile, misused Federal money to orchestrate public demonstrations, and therefore a media lynch mob, against Mr. Zimmerman. This is the same Attorney General whose Justice Department allegedly orchestrated more than 2000 gun felonies (straw purchases) in Operation Fast and Furious, at the cost of 150 Mexican lives and at least one U.S. law enforcement officer (Brian Terry). This individual would have gone to jail for contempt of Congress had his boss not invoked executive privilege to protect him.

Mr. Obama threatened publicly to “marginalize” opponents of his anti-coal agenda, and Barackobama.com does this by calling them climate change “deniers.” No rational person denies that climate change is a fact of nature, or even that carbon dioxide emissions may contribute to it. Mr. Obama knows this despite his effort to control the language of the argument, which is a basic PsyWar technique. Note also that he chose the hottest month of the year to renew this agenda, which is yet another psychologically manipulative technique.

What honest and rational people deny is the proposition that the diversion of hundreds of billions of dollars from the economy, with much of the money falling into the pockets of Mr. Obama’s campaign donors at Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase, will stop or even mitigate climate change. Cap and trade supporter Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s “Cap and Trade Could be a Boon to New York,” named these firms, and others, as explicit beneficiaries of this agenda.

Leadership by honest example, or “walking the talk,” is the best propaganda on earth. When it comes to climate change, that leadership is simply not there. “Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges” in the Telegraph, a British publication, describes what United Nations climate conference attendees do when they think nobody is watching them.. The United Nations then held its subsequent (2010) climate junket at the Mexican resort of Cancun, while Mr. Obama does not hesitate to use Air Force One and its carbon emissions for less-than-essential travel.
