THE NEW GOP RIGHT NOW- Embrace Global Conservatives

By Gayle Plato-Besley

In our Global World Politic, and President Obama’s Brave New World, all eyes look to POTUS for The Word. Just as candidate John McCain’s political ad told us, Obama is the biggest celebrity in the world. If only Mr. McCain had been as savvy and as hip as his great ads; we would have had a different President to be angry with about his compromising liberalism. But then, while McCain’s staffers were somewhat hip with an ear on a track of the times, candidate Obama’s team saw their guy in a totally different light. Barack Obama is the deus ex machina in the story. Obama is the surprising and unexpected event that drops in from nowhere to resolve the unresolvable. He’s the Greek God from above to save the twisted characters from death or worse—damnation.

Yet, any good writer will tell you that gods dropping in from on high just won’t cut it. It’s Bobby Ewing coming back to life in TV cliffhanger Dallas, or the dreamstate that let’s us wake up and not be in the Hell we were a few minutes ago. It’s a parallel universe where Spock has a beard.

But our POTUS is not a run of the mill liberal ‘God from the Machine’. Obama’s people and the ultra-radical shift to socialism come with the early frost. The globe may be quite hot for Barack, as he sings “Kumbaya” on Arab television. Yet, what will happen when the cameras go off, the campaign promises blow up, and the President is not invited over for tea and crumpets? Will he and his Secretary, Ms. Hillary, become Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand, singing “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers?”

Barack Obama Is KUMBAYA

Kumbaya” has controversial roots, with stories of some African spiritual as its origin. But truth be known, the song comes more from the 1920’s and 30’s American folk church-based spirituals– much like the radical socialism of America came from the union movements of the early 20th century. Joan Baez resurrected and recorded it in 1962. It became an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement. Yet the song is more about being poor and wanting God to come to the lowly; it has been mishandled as a symbolic olive branch from some phony African root. Either way though, Barack Obama’s handlers can use the theme deftly. Right now, he is the God from the Machine.

Brave New World?

I’ve noticed the fervor amongst Republicans for the RNC chairmanship- our choice of Michael Steele. The story of his election was a top headline: conservatives are looking for our God to fall in from Heaven. I think this is dangerous as we are modeling our attractions after the Obama machine. As Obama comes across as not only naïve regarding international relations, he seems a tool of the past. His team is Clintonized, including his chief of staff chatting up the likes of Paul Begala and George Stephanopoulos every day. It literally sends a tingly feeling down one’s leg, no?

We also see with this first round on Capitol Hill, how his precious jewels of the crown are securely in the palms of Nancy Pelosi. He isn’t even running his own show. Obama’s historical perspectives of American policy regarding Arab interests are just false. He sounds like a pseudo-intellectual who talks in cocktail party-lite, informational sound bites. He has a 30-second twitter, a text message-like working definition of a lot of issues. Beyond that, he’ll have to get back to ya.

Michael Steele is a great choice for the party coach, but he is not a savior quarterback with a Hail Mary pass. Get off the celebrity bandwagon, and let’s see the GOP be a team again with a strong offense and killer defense.

But at this moment in time, with Globally Organized Politics, not the Grand Ol Party, the true push, who is the conservative quarterback? It’s Likud Party leader and soon-to-be Prime Minister of Israel, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu. Now, I know, I’ve gushed before; I am on the record for him. But he is a winner and soon a reality, and a force to be reckoned with. Why am I on this kick again? What does an Israeli have to do with the American Conservative Movement anyway?

Benjamin Netanyahu (nicknamed BiBi by many Israelis) is the ONLY true conservative with the global relevance, clear conviction, excellent communication skills, military experience, extreme smarts with an Ivy league education, and compelling character to bring the world wide conservative agenda to the front page again. He is the quarterback, waiting to play. On February 10, 2009, Israel will elect a new leader and he’s the one.

The Bibi Gun

As our President is sending open love notes to Iran, Netanyahu concisely defines his plan: Israel will not allow a nuclear Iran. No questions and with total conviction, BiBi knows from where he sits. He was the Prime Minister before; he knows of military trenches and lost a brother in war. Yet he went to MIT and Harvard. He lived in the United States and likes Deniro films. He’s on Facebook and YouTube; he’s handsome and intense. He’s certain and defined with no wavering over his first job- to protect his people.

He’s conservative politically for a reason- he staunchly believes in freedom and sees the future of his people possibly disappearing. Netanyahu speculated about dire terrorism in New York, namely a suitcase nuclear bomb from Islamic extremists being set off in the World Trade Center: in his book frm 1995, Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorism

But also know that there is organized Islamic hatred and Internet-based fever surrounding this man. Many project that he and some Jewish power hold concocted 9/11. There is a true desire to see him gone. American Republicans better do more than watch him. We need him to be understood, heard, and heard again. Our GOP teams need to read his books, watch him on TV, and learn from his tutelage. He’s right and he’s outspoken. BiBi doesn’t need to look for his jewels as he wants no crown. He wants the honor of his free-willed people. He knows his people are at risk and remembers how history played out for the Jews; back when “Kumbaya” was just a plea for God to come in.

The GOP needs a global conservative. Michael Steele and the republican Americans will benefit from sidestepping Barack Obama. Treat him as if he was not even in the room as he is treating all history of diplomacy and freedom in this country. Do not go to Hillary Clinton or George Mitchell for political dealings. Go beyond these bit players to the man with the true calling.

If Benjamin Netanyahu wins again, Conservatism will have an international face and the muscle to move the mount of liberal radicalism, and terrorist extremism back to the Dark Ages where it all belongs.
