OARPA – OBOT Advanced Research Projects Administration

The birthers pasted bad Photoshop images of people’s pictures (mine included) onto all kinds of things, many these days with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration logo. Who knew that DARPA operated the Wienermobile?

It wasn’t the likes of Gerbil Report™ poster Barry Soetoro, Esq. that created the first Obot/DARPA association. It was Mike Zullo who said almost a year ago that some anonymous Obot was tracked through their IP address to someplace that had a DARPA artificial intelligence project. Given that the alleged Obot is anonymous, presumably unknown to Mike Zullo, then if Zullo is not lying, it might be that somebody made an anti-birther comment from work, such as one of the many large corporations or universities that have DARPA contracts. It is rumored that birther web sites are cooperating in an IP address harvesting project and this might be fallout from that. In the alternative, it might just be a scam Dennis Montgomery was running on Sheriff Arpaio.

Don DARPA

While the birthers tilt at DARPA windmills, they remain oblivious to the real challenge: the Obot Advanced Research Projects Administration (OARPA). OARPA is not part of the Military, but the Alternate Clandestine Service  (TXE3) under Jim Johnson, run out of the White House.

I talked about my own role in OARPA, although I did not name the agency, in my article, “An Apology To Joe Mannix.”1 I used the made-up terminology, “DARPAbot” and tried to obscure some very large hints under the guise of satire. I have a high position (I won’t say the title) at OARPA in the Birther Advanced Research Facility (BARF). Internet service providers give OARPA a feed of selected data packets related to birther Internet activity, and we use some really advanced AI techniques to filter out the nonsense (99.9999%), and select the handful of dangerous comments.2

The reader might wonder why I would talk so openly about such a secret clandestine operation, and why now. It’s part of the plan. In addition to the technical means used by BARF, we also have our Psychological Warfare – Nutcase Elimination Division (PWNED) that has determined that birthers are nearing  a meltdown largely due to the repeated delays from the Cold Case Posse, and the anxiety over the exponentially growing web of conspiracy they perceive (each conspiracy leads to a branch of new “connections”). They have come to believe in so many conspiracies all around them, that they are nearing a communal psychotic break. It is believed that the numbers of individuals who might be affected is so large that they would overwhelm our current mental health system, requiring mass institutionalization at government facilities, such as those of FEMA, and control using restraints and drugs. In a sense, this is a precision targeted extension of Cloward-Piven theory applied to the neutralization of birthers once and for all.

So birthers are invited to start digging into the information in this article and make new investigations, leading to increasing connections and newer conspiracies. The truth is out there.


1The Mannix character used proxy servers to obscure his real IP address, but that is no problem for OARPA, who easily tracked him to his home in [redacted] Louisiana. Since “Mannix” is a pseudonym, this note does not violate the site privacy policy.

2We aren’t believing the things we are finding.

3TXE – what self-respecting clandestine service would use its real initials?

Cloward and Piven were from Manchuria?

Alinsky and Cloward and Piven. Oh My!

One of the curious things that I have found in my brushes with birthers and their friends, is an interest in old liberal writings that I had never heard of. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is one. Another is the “Cloward–Piven strategy.”

The Cloward–Piven strategy was presented by sociologists and activists Robert Cloward and Frances Fox Piven in 1966 in an article in The Nation, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.” Their strategy was aimed at creating a “guaranteed national income” to replace the welfare system, and this goal was to be attained by overwhelming the existing welfare system through enrollment of everyone who was eligible (they claimed the number of recipients would double). The strategy envisioned the creation of a crisis, particularly in the Democratic Party which was in control of Congress and the presidency at that time by shaking up the coalitions that presently constituted the Party. The action they advocated to make it happen was: “…a massive drive to recruit the poor onto the welfare rolls.”

imageSo from time to time I have seen right-wingers mention Cloward-Piven, and I think I looked it up once and shrugged my shoulders. It’s back again at a little higher level, this time from politician Wayne Allyn Root. Root was been campaigning in Mississippi on behalf of Tea Party Senate candidate Chris McDaniel (who lost in a runoff with Thad Cochran – possible challenge being explored). Mother Jones magazine had extensive coverage of Root’s stump speech. In it, Root says that he and every student at Columbia in 1983 studied Cloward-Piven. Root said he knows this because:

Because I’m Barack Obama’s college classmate, Columbia University class of ’83. And when I was there at Columbia, we all studied a plan called Cloward–Piven

This point is somewhat blunted by Root’s later suggestion that Obama didn’t actually attend Columbia since no one remembers him (not actually true).

Returning to Cloward-Piven, Root characterizes the plan as one to “wipe out America” and to:

… get someone elected president, who looks fantastic, who has a beautiful wife, a beautiful children. A family man. Get him to cut his afro or his long hair, his ponytail. Put on a suit, and then lie to everybody.

There’s nothing like that in Cloward and Piven’s article.

This article inaugurates a new conspiracy category on the blog, “Manchurian Candidate.”
