Obamanation, Time that Americans Took Back Their Nation from the CriminalsPolitics / US Politics Dec 12, 2010 - 05:12 AM GMT
Back in early 2007, very few pundits gave Obama a chance in the 2008 Democratic presidential race. At the time, Hilary Clinton and others were front runners. But things would soon change.
Prior to the 2004 presidential campaign, George Soros & Co. were working to position Obama as a serious contender in 2008. They put together a propaganda book based on some episodes of Obama’s life, filled with the inspiration and glory often seen in fiction novels.
Mysteriously, the book, “Barack Obama, Dreams from My Father” was released in the summer of 2004 just a few days after Obama’s speech endorsing Senator John Kerry during the Democratic National Convention in late July 2004. Although this ghost-written book was intended to boost his status as a serious presidential candidate in 2008, the book was a very poor seller up until 2008.
Building on previous efforts to position Obama as a serious contender for the 2008 presidential race, his campaign staff commissioned another book to be written based on additional rhetoric from his previous speeches, with bits and pieces of his life’s “struggles” added so as to hit the emotions of the American sheeple.
Released in late 2007, the book, “The Audacity of Hope” could arguable be renamed as the “Audacity of Change.” Millions of sheep lined up to read it, unaware that it served merely as a marketing tool. 
What most fail to realize is that most books written by individuals with large media exposure are ghost written. This includes all of Obama’s books including the recent one for children. In fact, you should assume anyone with media exposure has hired a ghost writer unless proven otherwise. What this means is that these book really aren’t coming from these individuals.
In my view, when you put your name on a book as the sole author and you used a ghost writer, it constitutes deceptive business practices at best, and fraud at worst. Thus, such behavior tells you a good deal about the person’s integrity. How do you think Obama has been able to write so many books in such a short time span, all while jet-setting across the globe, meeting with his cabinet, congress, reading and approving hundreds of bills, appearing on TV etc. Come on people, wake up!
Next in line came phase three of Obama’s “Hollywood” marketing campaign, spearheaded once again by funding from George Soros and Co. as well as Wall Street and corporate America. Running with the same theme used in his book of dreams and audacity of lies, Obama’s political strategists designed a timely strategic plan to offer resolve to a nation that had suffered from decades of inequity and exploitation by corporate interests.
Obama promised change. And he offered hope to millions of Americans who had been left out of the greatest period of economic expansion since the post-war era.
During his presidential campaign began, Obama made many promises over 500 according to official sources. For many Americans, it seemed like he offered the solutions to a nation’s people overrun by corporate interests, unnecessary wars, a ridiculously expensive and inaccessible healthcare system, Wall Street and banking fraud and outsourcing. This accounted for his widespread popularity and rock star celebrity status.
As a part of his “change” mantra, Obama promised he would bring in fresh blood as opposed to Washington insiders. He promised that his presidency would be the most open in U.S. history. He also promised to bring U.S. troops back from Iraq immediately upon taking office. Next, he promised universal healthcare.
This sounded pretty good to most Americans, but he still wasn’t finished. He promised to restructure free trade and to secure the nation’s borders. He promised to hold those responsible for the financial crisis accountable.
Obama also promised that he would not take any lobbyist money, all while Goldman Sachs became his second biggest contributor (and his biggest contributor by a for-profit entity), with several other Wall Street firms, securities legal firms and corporations not far behind.
Fast-forward three years later and Goldman and other fraudulent Wall Street firms walked away virtually unscathed from committing endless counts of securities fraud. 
Let’s have a brief look at some of Obama’s broken promises.  Among the more than 500 promises made by Obama, I am glad that most have not been kept. The following is a short list of promises that were badly needed by America. Obama promised to:
Improve the Healthcare System
- Require health care providers to report preventable medical errors
- Allow imported prescription drugs
- Create a National Health Insurance Exchange
- Negotiate health care reform in public sessions televised on C-SPAN
- Create a public option health plan for a new National Health Insurance Exchange
- End income tax for seniors making less than $50,000
- Eliminate capital gains taxes for small businesses and start-ups
- Expand the earned income tax credit
End Fraud and Favoritism
- Reform Wall Street
- End no-bid contracts above $25,000
- Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials
- Reduce earmarks to 1994 levels
- Close loopholes in the corporate tax deductibility of CEO pay
- Form an independent watchdog agency to investigate congressional ethics violations
- Forbid companies in bankruptcy from giving executives bonuses
Preserve Constitutional Rights
- Revise the Patriot Act to increase oversight on government surveillance
- Restrict warrantless wiretaps
Preserve Human Rights
- Close the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center
Increase White House Transparency
- Allow five days of public comment before signing bills
- Not to permit signing statements to nullify instructions from Congress
- Make White House communications public
- Expose Special Interest Tax Breaks to Public Scrutiny
Help Foreclosure Victims
- Allow bankruptcy judges to modify terms of a home mortgage
Improve Fiscal Responsibility
- Enforce pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budget rules
Help the Working Class
- Increase the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour
- Establish a small business initiative for rural America
What’s truly remarkable is how Americans have been fooled by the media to liken Obama’s association with Reverend Wright as something bad, evil, and unpatriotic when in fact, it’s clear that Wright spoke a lot of truth. If Obama’s actions were more representative of Wright, America wouldn’t be killing innocent people in the Middle East.
To the shock of most people, within a few months of entering office Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize shortly after issuing order to bomb a village killing innocent civilians, all while increasing U.S. troops in Iraq. You need to ask yourself why Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after increasing death and violence.
But this is just one of many controversies surrounding Obama. We cannot forget his staunch support of three tax cheats (Geithner, Kirk and Daschle) to his cabinet, nor can we forget how he pulled in some of the same perpetrators of the collapse to serve as his closest advisors (Rubin, Summer, Geithner).
Finally, we must not forget the controversy surrounding the legitimacy of his citizenship and allegations of homosexuality and illicit drug use made by Larry Sinclair. 
Perhaps if Obama actually had any real authority to accomplish anything of value, these other questions about him might be forgotten. But as Americans should realize by now, it really matters not who is in office. The results will be the same because all major decisions are being made from others.
It took Bush 8 years to nearly double the nation’s debt taking it from $5.7 to $10 trillion, or 58% to 70% of GDP. With less than two years in office and the debt now at $14 trillion, it appears as if Obama will accomplish this feat in half the time. While Bush set many records in his 8 years in the White House, Obama has already made new records in foreclosures, unemployment, and much more. As Bush and Greenspan pushed America into its second Great Depression, Obama and Bernanke are now increasing its severity.   
The good news is that Obama stands virtually no chance at winning a second term election due to his abysmal failure, unless he runs against some bozo like Sarah Palin. However, we cannot even count her out, as millions of American sheeple have rallied by her side despite the fact that she has no clue about much of anything.
This gives you a good indication regarding the current state of America. Americans continue to be victimized because they are simply too ignorant to see how they have been fooled by celebrity status and have no ability to use the intelligence God gave them.
The bad news is that it doesn’t really matter whether Obama, some other democrat or a republican is in office. Washington has very little real power. They are merely puppets.
Clinton inked NAFTA, Bush expanded it, and Obama is expanding it further despite his promises to make trade fair for America. Meanwhile, Americans continue to suffer job losses and declining living standards as the result of this system of unfair trade. But the real agenda is being fulfilled, as corporate America enjoys record profit margins due to outsourcing to nations where employee benefits are provide by the government and environmental regulation is lax if at all present.  
Bush started the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and Obama is continuing these wars, despite his promises to end them. And all throughout his time in the White House, Obama has flip-flopped, distracted and deceived the American people on issues that matter most. 
Indeed, it has been business as usual in Washington. 
The reason why the really big issues such as war, trade and healthcare maintain the same course regardless whose in office is because it does not matter which party is in control.
The real power comes from the Council on Foreign Relations. All serious candidates for presidency are members of this elite group of globalist scum.
Hilary Clinton and John McCain are members of the CFR, as are Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and John Edwards. And of course, Barack Obama and Joseph Biden are members. In contrast, Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich are not members. This explains why neither stood a chance to win their respective party nominations from the beginning.
Americans will get the same results they have received for decades because America has a fascist government disguised as a two-party democracy. Instead of serving the people, the Washington puppets serve corporate interests and Israel. 
Can you imagine what would happen to the bank, Wall Street, real estate and mortgage executives if they were in China? 
They wouldn’t be around by now. But this is America, where CEOs commit accounting, shareholder and taxpayer fraud, destroy companies and leave with $200 million bonuses while taxpayers and investors end up screwed.
It’s happened in the past; not just during the dotcom bubble. It’s happened over and over for decades. And of course it’s happening now. If there is no real punishment for negligence and fraud, of course it’s going to happen again. Americans need to demand a third and forth political party. And they need to insist the end of all lobbyist activities.
In 2008 I wrote,
“President Bush has created quite a legacy for himself. One that might only be equaled only by Alan Greenspan. But of course most people have short memories. As a consequence, it is likely that in the future, there will be another Bush in office and another Greenspan as Fed chairman.”
Little did I know that the replacement for Bush and Greenspan were right around the corner.
From the start of his presidency, Obama was selecting Wall Street insiders and CFR members for his cabinet. He even brought in the son of a terrorist, Rahm Emanuel who had served in the Israeli military and intelligence, but not the U.S. military. This is a man who like many other Zionists in Washington holding dual citizenship, have claimed Israel as their number one loyalty. Emanuel’s family ties to the Israeli terrorist group Irgun escaped notice by Americans because the media did not discuss it.
Wikipedia even removed the biography of Rahm’s father, Benjamin Emanuel from its website immediately after Obama announced Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff. Of course, Obama really didn’t make these appointments. They were made for him. 
America’s corporate-Zionist controlled media monopoly has positioned itself as an extremely important partner in maintenance of America’s fascist regime through censorship, deceit and brainwashing tactics. Thus, if Americans were to be disconnected from this source of propaganda, they might actually research things on their own and realize what’s going on. 
In early 2009 when the television broadcasting conversion was to take place from analog to digital, you might recall how Obama delayed the conversion until that summer because the vouchers for digital signal boxes ran out. Obama made sure to delay the conversion until everyone had a chance to get their box free of charge. The reason for the delay was because Obama’s political advisers instructed him to do so. They wanted to ensure that all Americans would remain brainwashed by Obama’s scripted teleprompter BS.
Today, as Obama makes weekly appearances on trash TV, many of his supporters have lost all confidence from a man who promised hope and change. However, still millions of Americans, many of which are non-white remain clueless as to what is going on. Many of these loyal suckers have allegiance to race rather than reality. This is but another reason why America’s future remains troubling.
It should be obvious to anyone with even a sub-marginal IQ that Obama has been a complete failure. At least George Bush never preyed on the desperation and hope of millions to win his elections. 
Meanwhile, Bernanke has continued the destructive path blazed by the infamous denialist Alan Greenspan. Without a radical and immediate shakeup of Washington leadership and the Wall Street and Federal Reserve crime syndicate, America’s future remains discouraging for years to come.
If Americans truly understood the reality of what has happened, they would have already thrown every politician in prison. If the same scenario played out in Europe, these politicians might suffer a much worse fate. Instead, the media has deceived, distracted and censored the truth as they have always done in order to protect the interests of their financial partners, corporate America, Wall Street and the fascist regime headquartered in Washington DC.
As a result, Americans have once again fallen in the trap of blaming republicans or democrats. They have formed tea parties to support phonies who only seek to get elected. 
Meanwhile, the forces backing this frustrated group of Americans are laughing all the way to the bank.  As a result, America will continue to be transformed into a nation of an elite wealthy class and the poor. 
In a couple of years, a new president is likely to be seated in the White House. This president will be like others from past decades, promising this and that. But the results will be the same as they have been for three decades; declining living standards for most Americans and enrichment of corporations and their wealthy elite shareholders. This represents the future of America because the people have short memories and have allowed themselves to be brainwashed by the media. 
If there is one statement from Obama’s campaign that all Americans should be reminded of, it’s the following…
Now why don’t you people get up and do something. Don’t you think its past time that Americans take back their nation from the criminals?
