Obama’s Corporate Nemesis…

(Prelude…)   There was an audible gasp in the private room by several of the Republican gubernatorial candidates.  Tim Phillips, director of Americans For Prosperity, a front for the multi-billionaire Koch Brothers, continued,  “You heard it right.  This is a capitalist nation, not a nanny-state for lazy and homeless bums.

Obama, Inc?

The Democratic Party represents the interests of welfare cheats and surplus laborers.  They’re propped in power by unions that have usurped their role from honest, hard-working entrepreneurs.

   “It’s time we take that power back.  Starting after this election, we will crush the financial backbone of the Democrats…the unions.  There are only two parties that we need in America:  Those that earned it, the corporations, and you, their Republican representatives.”

Voice in the audience:  “And what if they stir up a strong backlash, like we see in the Mid-East?”

Phillips:  “No problem.  Then the Democrats can fulfill their true role…compromise and surrender.  Either way, we win!”

(Laughter…and so it is…   Source:  NikiLeaks, Dateline: [redacted]…) more…

Compromise & Surrender…

Is the President of the United States, Barack Obama–with a history of some street/community organizing creds–really that stupid?

Fresh news...

I realize that, at heart, he’s a neo-liberal ideologically not much removed from the conservative flunkies in the Republican Party.

On the issue of corporatism, he’s somewhere to their left, which to them puts him off-the-table next to the dog-dish.

Next to the dog-dish or not, I guess he figures that he’s still in the House…beats being with the rest of us in the Fieldsmore…

News Bits & Propaganda…

My subscribers may wonder at this site’s recent failure to post timely notices, along with a slow-down of articles.  For some reason—gremlins in the machine?—the notification plug-in stopped working about January 20th.

Pathetic Propaganda...

 

That has now been corrected, I hope…  Perhaps the gov’t mistook my site for WikiLeaks…whatever.  In any event, I’ve taken this opportunity to do some work on two book projects, and have found myself quite absorbed in that.

Meantime, allow me to comment on a few news items that have crossed my desk… more…

Obama’s Bubbafication (1994 Revisited)…

Back in ’92, it took The Man from Hope precisely two yrs to sell out the mass popular base that put him into political power.  Obama’s right on schedule.

How's that hopey-changey thing going?

Last week, we were treated to the First Lady in her corporate media appearance at Walmart(“Eat more healthy foods”?).  Walmart?  One of the largest exporters of jobs to neo-slavery labor markets to make cheap consumables for the US?  An anti-union corporation?

A few days later, the president himself bent over for a three-card-monte of find-the-joker.  Obama shuffled out the original Wall Street gang and brought in a fresh crew of master con-artists. more…

Obama: Premature Capitulation…

I can’t think of a speech that has ever been more emotive and also spoke directly to the current political issues involved than that in the following video.  In this instance, Keith Olbermann of MSNBC comments on President Barack Obama’s current $900 billion giveaway to the rich thru extended tax cuts for at least the next two yrs.

Given that the flunkies to the rich will certainly seek to extend that “compromise” further, it actually means a $2 trillion giveaway over the next decade.

Everything that this site has spoken to re Obama and the issues, is mirrored in this speech.  I couldn’t begin to think of a way to say it any better…

There’s an anecdote that I find strangely appropriate on this occasion.  It’s one related by Michael Winship concerning the French Revolution. more…
