My Review of the New Book “American Marxism” by Mark Levin

My Review on of the New Book “American Marxism” by Mark Levin

Mark Levin did a good job in writing this new and needed book which introduces the reader to “cultural Marxism”, aka American Marxism, and how all our major institutions in the USA have been infiltrated per the teachings of Herbert Marcuse, Saul Alinsky, and Cloward and Piven over the last couple generations and how our cultural institutions are now solidly controlled by ideologue Marxist disciples of Marcuse, Alinsky, Cloward, Piven, and other Marxist mentors. The cultural Marxists now have “permanent influencers” in all our major institutions. And they are now openly and aggressively working on one of the last major institutions not totally infiltrated – our military. The long march through the institutions advocated by Antonio Gramsci 100 years ago has succeeded in the USA where violent revolution advocated by Vladimir Lenin could not.

For another book that covers more of these “cultural Marxists”, past and present, I would recommend the reader read another book “Who Was Karl Marx?: The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today’s Rampaging American Left” by James Simpson.

Mark Levin is doing a great job now identifying and sounding the alarm regarding “cultural Marxism” with his new book. But in my opinion, he let the country down previously when he refused to fully engage with others in the exposing of the “cultural Marxist”(and life narrative enigma) Barack Obama when he first ran for election to the Presidency in 2007/2008 and subsequently became the “cultural Marxist”-in-Chief, and then also let us down again during Obama’s re-election campaign in 2011/2012.

Barack Obama getting forefront control of the executive branch of the U.S. government for 8 years, and now “leading from behind” in another 4 years under his front-man and puppet Joe Biden, is one of the root causes of the rapid acceleration of the end-game power plays of the various Marxist movements in the USA that we are now seeing play out before our eyes, and no longer hiding in the shadows.

Mark Levin should have been more supportive of those back in 2007 and 2008 challenging the Article II Section 1 Clause 5 constitutional ineligibility of Barack Obama to be the President and Commander in Chief or our military. Mark Levin militantly refused to listen or join in that battle regarding Obama’s ever changing early life narrative.

At the time I think he was being threatened and intimidated by his radio show management from doing so (an early version of the “cancel culture” tactics we see very prevalent now) by the very Marxist groups and forces that he now describes in his book American Marxism.

By allowing the born dual-Citizen of the U.S. and England, Barack Obama, to gain control of the executive branch (when he was not constitutionally eligible, per the founders and framers understanding and intent of putting the “natural born Citizen” clause into the Presidential Eligibility clause of our U.S. Constitution, as a strong check against foreign influence per John Jay’s summer of 1787 letter to George Washington), Mark Levin allowed the entire foreign-influenced, dual-Citizen camel train of Obama and fellow travelers to gain complete entry into the tent, and not just the noses that cultural Marxists have been poking around our constitutional republic tent for decades.

The cultural Marxists have been trying to get complete control of our constitutional republic in order to tear it apart and and tear it down in order to then rebuild it into their promised utopian socialist nirvana, which as more and more controls are imposed to enforce their dream, turns the target nation into a police state instead.

Regardless of Mark Levin’s past lapses in not standing up for original intent re the “natural born Citizen” term in the presidential eligibility clause of our U.S. Constitution, I recommend reading this new book. We must wake up the American public to the threat we face from “cultural Marxists” of the past generations and ones of the current generation like Barack Obama and others in his orbit.

“Who Was Karl Marx?: The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today’s Rampaging American Left” by James Simpson

Another new book is out about the Culture War and the manipulation of the meaning of words, speech, language, infiltration of all the major institutions of our culture, and other tactics by the far-left past and present to undermine and subvert the nation’s culture and in the process achieve its political objective to overthrow the constitutional republic form of government in the USA and replace it with a socialist totalitarian government: “Who Was Karl Marx?: The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today’s Rampaging American Left” by James Simpson

I just finished reading this book. It is a well researched , well written, easy to read book about the cast of characters in history (and those in the present generation too) who are orchestrating the great movement to undermine our culture and common sense in the USA in an effort to overthrow our constitutional republic and replace it eventually with a socialist/communist dictatorial central government far beyond and more controlling than what we are experiencing already, which at present is the worst I’ve seen it our nation in my life time.

I knew many of the names but not all of them. As you read this book you will see exactly who put forward that particular strategy being used in which circumstances to destroy our culture and country.

The end-goal of the people, past and present, profiled in this book is the complete destruction of America as we have known it. What we are seeing happening is not an accident. We are seeing the end-game of a plan of action that has taken generations to finalize. And permanently finalizing the plan as quickly as possible before too many people wake up and fight back is the Biden, Obama, and Harris agenda.

The book also provides strategies one can use to fight back against this rapidly metastasizing threat to our culture and everything we held dear about our country.

As they say, know thy enemy and his play book. And this book tells us who they were and who their modern disciples of today still are, and their plans, strategies, and modus operandi.

I highly recommend everyone reading this review to read this book. And after you have read it, recommend it to others too. I certainly will.

Pass the word!

“Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds” by Michael Knowles

A new book is out about the Culture War and the manipulation of the meaning of words, speech, and language by the left to undermine and subvert the nation’s culture and in the process achieve political objectives. “Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds” by Michael Knowles

My comment:

What we are experiencing has a name. It is derived from its communist, linguist, founder Antonio Gramsci— “Gramscian Gradualism” or “Gramscism”.

What has happened with the redefining of the “natural born Citizen” term in the U.S. Constitution is one prime example of what the linguist and communist Antonio Gramsci suggested in his “Prison Notebooks” writings as the way to undermine the western democracies and their constitutions, i.e., over time redefine the meaning of words and language to help achieve one’s political objective, enabled by long-term infiltration by far-left permanent influencers of the cultural institutions of a nation (and eventual hegemony over them) such as the academia, entertainment industry, churches, court systems, main-stream major media, and other major institutions of the targeted western democracy.

In the prime example of the term “natural born Citizen” the Gramscian Gradualists in both major political parties have abrogated a national security term in the presidential eligibility clause of Article II Section 1 Clause in our U.S. Constitution, and have redefined it (with the help of useful idiots in the Republican Party thinking only on their own political ambitions or political party ambitions) to mean anyone “born a Citizen” even if that Citizen is born with dual-Citizenship and allegiances to a foreign nation, as opposed to what the founders and framers intended, i.e., the “natural born Citizen” requirement was to be a “strong check” against foreign influence on those who would be allowed to serve as Commander-in-Chief of our military forces once the founding generation was gone. The founders and framers considered and rejected the requirement to be only “born a Citizen” to serve as a future President and Commander-in-Chief of our military and instead made the requirement to be a “natural born Citizen“. Read more about that here.

By allowing persons born with foreign influence on them from birth, and bringing said foreign influenced culture of theirs into the highest elected offices of our nation, the President and Commander-in-Chief of our military, we have seen what we get. See the cases of Barack Obama (born a British Subject) as President and CinC, and the Vice Presidency and the current the case of Kamala Harris (born a Citizen of Jamaica). Both did not and do not have allegiance solely and only to America because they also hold allegiance since birth to a foreign country. Both consider themselves to be citizens of the world, and not solely and only to the USA. Both would rather see America and its world power brought down and not built up.

Antonio Gramsci – Italian Marxist philosopher, Communist, journalist, linguist, writer, and politician

We have been dealing with the far-left slow-roll gradualism strategy of Antonio Gramsci to bring down the western democracies including the USA for a long time. Key institutions have been infiltrated and controlled by the far-left organic intellectuals and permanent persuaders, as Gramsci called them, under the Marxist plan which Gramscian gradualists call “The Long March Through the Institutions.”

They’ve been at it for generations, encouraged by other radical leaders and writers such as Rudolph Dutschke and Saul Alinsky, for the last 100 years and are at the apex of their hegemony in the institutions and thus control virtually all of our national institutions. If Trump had not won the election they would have come forward and out of the woodwork and totally taken over under Clinton and moved the nation at a quicker pace to a Socialist one, which status to the Communists is a temporary state, and just one more step towards Communism, which end state they believe is a Utopian form of government. They must be stopped now. We need to learn more about the enemy within and their tactics, projects, and strategy. Know thy enemy! Read what Jeff Carlson summarized. I’ve read lengthy works about Gramsci and what Jeff Carlson summarized about Gramsci is excellent. See:

The article excerpted and linked to above by Jeff Carlson is spot-on about Gramsci and a good summary of Gramsci’s long-term political agenda to bring socialism and communism to the western democratic nations. Modern “Progressives” believe in and use his tactics and strategy all the time. And they know what they are “progressing” towards … Socialism … and then in the very long-term Communism.

Learn what Jeff Carlson is sharing in his article and spread it to your friends and associates and anyone and everyone who needs to learn that what we see is happening in our country, and the co-opting and destruction of our institutions and changing the meaning of words in our language, is not an accident. Gramsci was educated as a linguist. He advocated the manipulation of language to further political goals. What we are experiencing is the result of the Gramscian long-term plan all along. We are just the generation at the end point of his long-march strategy in which we see it coming to full fruition and a head.

What we are feeling and seeing now, that we know something is wrong in our country, we can all now understand that it has has a name “Gramscism”. It’s “progress” must be stopped before it is too late. Control of the the House and Senate must be taken away in 2022 from the Democratic Socialist Party lead by Pelosi and her ilk. President Donald Trump must be re-elected in 2024. They tried to cripple him in his first term at every step. Now he knows what he’s up against. He will be the only one with enough power, authority, and courage to take them on if he gets a second term. Give him the opportunity to save our constitutional republic. Take back the House and Senate in 2022. Re-elect Donald Trump 2024.

Norman Thomas stated that what we now see happening in plain sight, would first happen gradually, and in the end people would wonder how it happened: “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” ~ Norman Thomas ~ Source:

We now know the name of the communist linguist strategist who gave them all the ideas and tactics of how to do it — Antonio Gramsci. Know your enemy and his play book. Read the new book “Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds” by Michael Knowles.

P.S.  Other suggested reading and viewing on being a “natural born Citizen” of the United States of which Obama is not:

1. A chart which lists and explains the five (5) Citizenship terms used in the U.S. Constitution.

2. Being a “born Citizen” or “Citizen at Birth” is not identically the same as a being a “natural born Citizen”.

3. Read this essay regarding the constitutional term “natural born Citizen” and basic logic, i.e., trees are plants but not all plants are trees. “Natural born Citizens” are a subset of “born Citizens (citizens at birth)”. Adjectives mean something. All “natural born Citizens” are “born Citizens (citizens at birth) but not all “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” are “natural born Citizens”:

4. A Euler Diagram which logically shows the kinds of U.S. Citizens and their set and subset relationships:

5. The “Three Legged Stool Test” for being a Natural Born Citizen:

6. Article II Presidential Eligibility Facts: or

7. Watch these videos (Parts I and II) by the renowned constitutional scholar Dr. Herb Titus: and

8. Read, download, and print a PDF copy of this White Paper by CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) about the “natural born Citizen” term and presidential eligibility clause in Article II of our U.S. Constitution here:
