Obama on MSNBC’s “Hypocrisy Watch”

MSNBC’s “Hypocrisy Watch” featured Obama yesterday. This video details how the gov’t was notified of the controversial AIG bonuses last fall, and had been on TV as late as a week ago defending their inaction.

Once word got out that AIG was using taxpayer monies for multi-million dollar executive bonuses, the Obama team decided to act surprised and incensed.

It sure is nice not having to see Boy George’s mug on the tube 24-7 now, but, really, why couldn’t we Americans have elected an honest man for once? Especially now.

Obama: New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

david-icke-guide-to-global-conspiracyIn addition to his many books, David Icke authors a weekly newsletter. Here are some exceprts showing how Obama is channeling Bush:

This week Obama has employed the same Problem-Reaction-Solution techniques used by Bush to force through the spending of staggering amounts of borrowed money that will, as planned, destroy the American economy and therefore American society as we know it.

Last September George Bush addressed the nation to sell a plan to transfer almost a trillion dollars from the American people, or through loans that will have to be met by the American people, to the banking system that had engineered the financial crisis. The technique he used? Of course – fear:

Bush: “The government’s top economic experts warn that, without immediate action by Congress, America could slip into a financial panic and a distressing scenario would unfold.

“More banks could fail, including some in your community. The stock market would drop even more, which would reduce the value of your retirement account. The value of your home could plummet. Foreclosures would rise dramatically.

“And if you own a business or a farm, you would find it harder and more expensive to get credit. More businesses would close their doors, and millions of Americans could lose their jobs.”

2009-02-obamaThis week Obama went on television with a news conference and public meetings to sell what amounts to spending, when all is added together, up to three trillion dollars in borrowed money. This would be handed to the banking system and spent on projects to ‘stimulate the economy’. The technique he used? Of course – fear:

Obama: “Economists from across the spectrum have warned that if we don’t act immediately, millions more jobs will be lost, and national unemployment rates will approach double digits. More people will lose their homes and their health care. And our nation will sink into a crisis that, at some point, we may be unable to reverse.”

Those words of Bush and Obama could have been written by the same people and were in terms of the ultimate source.

What we are looking at here is a presidential version of Problem-Reaction-Solution with Bush brought in to front-up the creation of massive economic problems and overseas wars and then, with the people in fear and under stress, the golden boy Obama has been installed to offer the ‘solutions’.

As with the Bush bank ‘bail-out’ and Orwellian ‘Patriot’ Act, Obama has sought to force through his multi-trillion dollar suicide note with as little debate and oversight as possible by stressing the urgent need to implement his plans immediately.

The Bush regime threatened politicians who questioned his bail out bill with martial law on American streets if they didn’t play ball. This week, Obama went directly to the people to put pressure on the doubters on Capitol Hill to bend to his will. As USA Today put it:

usa-today“Under fire in Washington, he scheduled campaign-style town-hall meetings to make the case for his huge economic stimulus bill to folks in Elkhart, Ind., and Fort Myers, Fla. He dismissed the Republican opposition as the business-as-usual crowd. He relied on his rhetorical skills and popularity.”

2009-02-obama-kissingThat’s Obama’s key role for the cabal – to exploit his massively-hyped popularity to get enough of the people behind him to turn Congress and the Senate into vehicles for his will. If you are not with him, you must be against America.

The man is the most blatant of frauds and it was stomach-turning to see him this week patronising and kissing a black lady with serious financial troubles while a white woman nearby, her face filled with religious awe, mouthed the words ‘I love you Barack’. Pass the sickbag.

Putin’s Worried About Something…

Does this seem like it’s coming out of nowhere to you? Is he serious?

putin_dees_smMOSCOW – RUSSIAN Prime Minister Vladimir Putin warned that any attempt to destabilise Russia would be firmly dealt with as the country marked its national day on Saturday honouring the security services.

‘Any attempts to weaken or destabilise Russia, damage the country’s interests and its citizens will be toughly suppressed’ Mr Putin told a meeting of top security officials and spies in the Kremlin Friday night.

Mr Putin, himself a former KGB officer, did not specify who might pose a threat to Russia but the message could be addressed both to Western security services and opposition at home.

As the economic crisis broadens in Russia, avoiding mass-scale social unrest is a top priority for the Kremlin. [more]

Cheney Lauds Obama’s NS Team

cheney darth vaderIf you still think Obama will be significantly different from what we’ve had these last disasterous eight years, this’ll send a chill down your spine.

In a wide-ranging interview with ABC News with 35 days left in the Bush administration, Cheney also again vehemently defended going to war in Iraq, said waterboarding of suspects in the war on terror was justified in some instances and opposed closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

“I must say, I think it’s a pretty good team,” Cheney said of Obama’s national security choices, in a segment of the interview broadcast Tuesday on “Good Morning America.”

The vice president said he thinks “the idea of keeping (Bob) Gates at defense is excellent. I think (retired Gen.) Jim Jones will be very, very effective as the national security adviser.”

And Cheney said that while “I would not have hired” Hillary Rodham Clinton to be secretary of state, “I think she’s tough. She’s smart, she works very hard and she may turn out to be just what President Obama needs.”

Video: Bush Shunned By World Leaders

Bush 43, the most unpopular president in US history, was shunned by world leaders at the G20 Economic Summit. Notice how they each refuse to shake his hand as he walks the receiving line.

545 People Responsible for All U.S. Woes

This Charley Reese article appeared in the Orlando Sentinal Star back in the early 90’s, I think. Even more true today!

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don’t write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don’t set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don’t control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices – 545 human beings out of the 235 million – are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered but private central bank.

I excluded all but the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it.

No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislation’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

Alert: “We Are Under Martial Law”

A member of Congress declared Sunday that the Speaker of the House (Nancy Pelosi) has declared martial law.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) reports from the floor of the House that the Republicans have been cut out of the process and called unpatriotic for not blindly supporting the fraudulent bailout. He says the only debate has been about what talking points to use on the American people. The most ominous revelation is when he claims the Speaker has declared martial law.

“I have been thrown out of more meetings in this capital in the last 24 hours than I ever thought possible, as a duly elected representative of 825,000 citizens of north Texas.” Said Congressman Burgess.

Burgess asks the Speaker of the House to post the bailout bill on the internet for at least 24 hours instead of passing the largest piece of legislation in US financial history in the “dark of night.”

The most frightening part of Rep. Burgess’ one-minute floor speech is when he says, “Mr. Speaker I understand we are under Martial Law as declared by the speaker last night.”

I have no more info at this time.

But remember, though, the US Military’s NorthCom is deploying troops stateside on Wednesday:

The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys. Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.

Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.

UPDATE: “Legislative” martial law was declared Saturday by Nancy Pelosi. This affects only Congress. It suspends the normal procedures and safeguards and allows the House Leadership to operate in a more authoritarian fashion.  It enables the Leadership to seek to ram a bill through before the Members have the opportunity to fully understand what they are voting on.
