BARACK OBAMA THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS? THE CAT AND MOUSE GAME
By Fahim A. Knight-El
I was having a conversation with an African American elderly gentleman and his wife, perhaps approximately a month ago, they were in their late 60s and we got on the conversation about voting, in particular the conversation shifted quickly to how proud they were of the accomplishments of President Barack Obama becoming the first so-called black or African American president of the United States. Many African Americans who are over sixty years of age had accepted that they would never see a black president of the United States of America in their life time. Thus, many blacks over 60 years old view President Barack Obama since his presidency, as a fulfillment of time in which his presidency represents the struggles and sacrifices they made in the area of social justice and equality—that was carried out in boycotts, walking picket lines, sit-ins, stand-ins, etc., they feel that their protest against racial segregation and their fight for integration and inclusion broke down many social barriers in order to achieve access to public accommodation and Civil Rights. This reality for them in 2008 came full circle by manifesting itself in President Barack Obama being elected to the highest office in the land and they were proud of this accomplishment. Many like them had grown up in the segregated South under divisive Jim Crow laws and their lives had been shaped by American style racism and this evil had without a doubt affected their worldview and it is understandable. I too as a black man growing up in America share their sentiments.
They have visualized President Barack Obama’s presidency as the fulfillment of Dr. Martin Luther King's, Jr. dream (many blacks even saw his ‘election’ as the fulfillment of prophecy of course I wasn’t willing to go that far) and has embodied him to be the final pay off of the struggles they made in the civil rights movement. They ignorantly determined that he is good because they somewhat share a partial quasi ethnic lineage (President Obama's father was African) and as a people who were robbed and kidnapped from Africa (although first lady Michelle Obama share more of a kinship with black Americans than her husband Barack Obama), we are constantly looking for symbols that we can identify with. However, many African Americans are not willing to look beyond his skin color and objectively assess and critique his public policy and his political decisions as commander-in-chief of the United States of America over the last three and half years (to determine the credibility of his presidency relative to whether or not he has enacted public policy that was in line with the Black Agenda). He seems to be more sensitive to everyone else agenda other than his own people. I have to tell it like it is. President Obama and his Handlers are quite aware of the cultural and political sensitivity of his most loyal constituents and most of all they fully understand black folk’s allegiance to him as a collective voting bloc and the Democratic Party. This factor will only better set them up more for political manipulation in this an upcoming 2012 presidential election by the Obama's administration and the Democratic Party.
This translates to mean unlike all other ethnic groups inside of America, we do not effectively use our political bloc to leverage our power (get something from the deal other than unfulfilled promises) in which to affect national and foreign policy and we allow the Democratic Party to take our vote for granted. Most blacks always justify their loyalty to the democratic party as being a case of the lesser of the two evils—they may have a very good point in this up coming presidential election because the candidates: Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul really there is not much to choose from in the presidential race and this includes President Obama (they are all Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and Bilderberg front-men and agents) in reality, the political agenda and script for next four years has already been written and set (the 2012 presidential election has already been held outside of the American electoral process and President Barack Obama has already been given a second term, which means your vote does not mean SHIT, it is the Rothschilds that determines who becomes president and not your vote. Tell your neighbor that you heard this by way of Fahim A. Knight-El Blog http://fahimknightsworld.blogspot.com/20... of the few so-called African American truth tellers. These so-called American Negroes sit in church every Sunday listening to some ignorant handkerchief head Negro preacher telling them about some mystery God in the sky that does not exist and keep us remaining the cannon fodder for other civilized nations. The preachers are an intricate part of the dumbing down process that is a big part of keeping us ignorant to how important, it is to know of the paradigm shift. Our people need knowledge and truth and not just a Sunday morning disco of no substance and sending the people away with a hooping sermon of hot air. These are serious times that we are living under.
For example, our black President Barack Obama on December 31, 2011, passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), perhaps the most reactionary piece of legislation since President George W. Bush and Congress imposed the United States Patriot Act 43 days after the 9/11 hoax (there are many false flags waving throughout America). The NDAA is one of the greatest infringements on American civil liberties since the 9/11 fallout in which they have strategically and tactfully used the 9/11 hoax to get the American people to voluntarily surrender their civil liberties, which has render the U.S. Constitution null-in-void and most all rendered the American people legally defenseless. They have done a masterful job of creating panic and fear in the name of national defense. NDAA is not another piece of political and legal ammunition designed to combat counterterrorism (from the American people’s vanish point we have been thoroughly duped into believing the NDAA was put in place as a legal apparatus to better fight international terrorism and Al-Qaeda and America's external enemies; however, it is more like they laid the groundwork to apprehend American citizens that are deemed dissidents by the government). The NDAA was put in place to check ordinary citizens who get out of line. There should have been a huge outcry from the American public demanding that this Executive Order or legislation be rescinded. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) should have filed a federal law suit under our present civil rights laws because the government has truly become all intrusive under the banner of Homeland Security and has trampled all over 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
We do not realize that we (us, you and I) could immediately come under the U.S. Enemy Combatant laws—where our so-called due process is stripped and we are incarcerated with no formal charges, no rights to an attorney, no bail and (other than a U.S Government accusation being held over our heads) we could be held captives in an indeterminate state or status; no different than the so-called "Al Qaeda terrorist" that has been housed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba since 9/11 (imprisoned with no legal rights and without due process) and has been legally stripped of all of their rights as prisoners of war, moreover, this could be the status of the average American citizen based on the language written in the National Defense Authorization Act, which has broaden the United States Justice Department powers and empowered them with the legality to place United States Citizen in offshore custody prisons and in places like Guantanamo Bay which has been designated throughout the world. The assistant editor of the "Final Call" newspaper Ashahed M. Muhammad in January 10, 2012 wrote an interesting article titled, "National Defense Authorization Act lays foundation for targeting political dissenters, activism" (Reference Final Call.com) http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/...) .
There is no need to change the White House decorum or change the president, the present man who sits in the Oval office from their vanish point has done a masterful job. Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta are actually running and determining United States Foreign Policy. They went into Tunisia (this was only an initial tester to soften up the region)—they ended Honsi Mubarak’s reign over Egypt, a once strategic ally to Israel and the U.S., they assassinated Colonel Muammar Qadaffi and got control over Libyan oil fields, and the wild, wild west cowboy George W. Bush invaded Iraq and killed Saddam Hussein in a kangaroo court and took control over the Ramallah Oil fields. He also invaded Afghanistan (another important geo-strategic region in Central Asia) to take control over the poppy (this occupation is based on the Dope Trade) plantations. Now, the Obama administration is using massive propaganda against Iran and its President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This conflict like most international conflicts that place are initiated by the United States and the West, it is often about gaining control over other nation’s resources in these above cases it was mainly about oil and geo-strategic positioning to re-colonize the Middle East and so-called sub-Sahara Africa and gain direct control over the wealthiest continent on earth. Some conscious individuals who blog on other progressive forums seem to think that Iran and the United States could be in business together and further believe that they are possible co-conspirators in the recent international oil price gouging that have seen oil prices skyrocketed in the United States and around the world.
This is what Kenny’s Sideshow (http://kennysideshow.blogspot.com/) stated to me: “I rarely link Gordon Duff at VT but he makes some points that can be thrown in the mix. Take with not just a grain but a block of salt. Is Iran in on this 'confrontation' to keep the oil prices high? Is Israel heavily invested in oil futures? Even if Iran is in on it, they would be taking a big chance that they would not be double crossed. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/01/09/...
Rumors that Iran bought nuclear weapons from the former Soviet Union have been around since the early 90's. I don't know but it's plausible and perhaps the ultimate deterrent. I guess higher gas prices is better than WWIII. Regarding the 'war' on Islam: Santorum is a typical war mongering liar http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=41085 As someone keeps reminding me, truth understood by the masses about the 9/11 false flag is the key in ending all this madness” This is what this pawn President Barack Obama has done on the international front in less than four years. He is one of the most dangerous presidents of all times.
I do not put anything past the CIA and of course they specializes in duping—portray Iran as posing some type of imaginary and imminent danger toward the United States and Israel get the Talking Heads talking about how dangerous Iran is to global security—use the propaganda machines in which the Talking Heads are good at swaying public opinion toward U.S. Governments interest and demonizing America’s so-called enemies. But the objective is to manipulate the oil market by justifying an artificial crisis and inflate oil prices—these decisions are made out of greed. Yet, it still remains difficult for me to accept that Iran and the United States are in cahoots together, although money and power has been known to create a union of strange bedfellows. Also, they desire to openly militarily attack Syria, but China and Russia are close allies to Syrian President Bashar Hafiz Assad—he has been one of their best war machine customers. However, take a moment to assess America’s propaganda relative to Syria—They are constantly stating on the news (we know who controls the news) that Assad is killing his own people in the streets; moreover, this has become a familiar theme at least in how they portrayed the disturbances in Iraq, Libya, and Egypt before they moved in on these Muslim and Islamic societies. Someone please tell me, what were these above international crimes about? These are clear examples that Africa and the so-called Middle East is under attack and the Europeans are ravaging these people’s nations and resources in the name of working to establish so-called democracy. The warmongers are beating the war drum again and I believe that Iran and Syria are next on the war agenda.
Ron Paul has said some innovative things relative to the Federal Reserve and in his own way has taken on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (very few politicians have done this) and has publically exposed perhaps the greatest money changer (shakedown) institution in the world—the reality is that all the global misery is being created from the office of the Federal Reserve, but it appears the masses of people desire more of the same by opting to remain participants in the two party system. For example, I do think the Occupy Wall Street movement has not impacted or changed how American voters view all these corporate sponsored candidates running for president. Surely they must know and understand that the corporate politician’s interest is to continue feeding the Machine (international bankers) and to keep the 99% (the masses of humanity) fighting for crumbs that falls from the rich man’s table and scratching for their existence. We have not heard one of these corporate sponsored Republican presidential candidates come right out and say that I support the Occupy Wall Street movement; this should tell us that they don’t give a damn about the 99% percent, their interest is protecting and securing the interest of the 1% (this is who financed their campaigns) and maintaining the status quo. So we will "vote" one of their operatives into office and it will remain business as usual in which the wealth will remain in the possession of the traditional wealth holders (this hidden class who consider themselves all sovereign and above all the nation’s laws).
The entire political process is nothing but a sophisticated game and scam that is being played on the have nots designed to keep the 99% powerless with a voting lever in one hand, which assures they remain happily powerless—after all they voted. Gill Scott Heron and Curtis Mayfield was singing and telling us some of these things in their lyrics 40 years ago. Perhaps many are oblivious to the fact and do not understand that voting will not change the condition of the masses of people (voting is designed to keep the masses pacified). It’s only an illusion. Power has always been about maintaining privilege and class and not about the true essences of how democracy is going to be carried out (this is secondary). These bloodsuckers of the poor are not willing to part ways with controlling the monetary reserve (the money system) and the global resources. The Republicans and Democratics are one in the same; the two party system was not designed to ensure democracy, but to only give the appearance of given the American people political options and alternatives. This system is rooted in capitalism and greed where the major means of production and distribution is controlled by the Rothschilds—greed is driving the decision making in our so-called democracy and No one has the power to alter the present economic paradigm. These money changers are wicked and deceitful.
But AIPAC gave Ron Paul the litmus test and he buckled—they accused him of being anti-Semitic and he began to soften his rhetoric. Yet these same forces who claim to be against bigotry, racism and anti-Semitism, but you have not heard them utter one word condemning Mitt Romney and his association with the Mormon Church (Church of Latter Day Saints) and their past racist theology taught against so-called people of African descent. They held these views up until 1978 that African people were inferior and they justified these contentions with biblical scriptures. Why haven’t the Anti Defamation League (ADL) and the National Association for the Advancement Colored People (NAACP) joined forces and condemned presidential candidate Mitt Romney for being connected to a right-wing theology and church? Why haven't the black leadership of America raised the issue? Thus many of these same 'Negro' leaders that were quick to condemn President Barack Obama for his association and involvement in the Ministry of Reverend Jeremiah are silent on repudiating Mitt Romney for his association with a racist church organization. Reverend Wright who taught a Black Liberation theology and it was good for the souls of black people. I am a student of Reverend Wright’s theology and I have always supported his social Gospel approach of teaching, the teachings of Jesus, the Christ (Yeshua Ben Yosef) and making Christianity relevant in lives of the black downtrodden.
However, none of them have stood front and center to focus public attention on Romney’s association with the racist Mormon Church. I am just pointing out a double standard. The white establishment and even some of the "Negro establishment accused President Barack Hussein Obama of being a Muslim (in a white supremacy society being Muslim disqualifies an American citizen from being considered for president, but being Catholic and part of sexual perverted church where pedophiles reign high you stand a better chance of being electable) —I will say this Obama's mentor Reverend Wright was definitely influenced by the life given teachings of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and there is little doubt in my mind that President Obama was sympathetic to the teachings of Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. But those who control the power inside of the United States and world flipped him.
They all have found the poor easy targets to vilify because they are without defense. These cronies want us to believe that the poor had caused the escalating national deficit and it is easy to use the poor as the scapegoat of America's economic woes, but these damnable liars will never tell the people that America and Europe are in this present economic condition because of the international monetary decisions made by the Rothschilds and implemented by the bank of International Settlement in Switzerland. It is not Medicaid, food stamps, Medicare, Social Security and/or any other social program that have caused the collapse of the American system (this is being orchestrated on a much higher and sophisticated level). But the politicians (they know their place) can play on this, as well as incite the ignorant (the 85% who has been intentionally been made blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self by 10%) and if they curtailed all government subsidy programs tomorrow, it still will not factor into balancing the national budget. There is a deficit because of greed and profiteering by a small group but powerful class of men—who in 2008 altered the world, it was they that sent AIG, Lehman Brothers, Bear-Sterns, Goldman Sachs, etc., and the visible banks into a downward economic spiral, which was carried out under the watchful eye of former Secretary of Treasury Henry Paulson and President George W. Bush. This was all part of the scam (they are also behind the recent economic collapse of the economics markets affecting nations of the European Union—they control the Euro and the European money systems from the Bank of England).
These same culprits prematurely gave President Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize (what has he done up until this point deserving of such prestigious award other than served in state government in Illinois and served briefly in the United States Senate and claimed to have been a community organizer in Chicago?). Thus, surely these credentials did not standout as an individual who had gone far beyond the call of duty in which his work and legacy had made such a contribution that it already has and will impact humanity in a decisive way long after he is dead and gone. Perhaps there will and shall be a question mark about his significance being enshrined amongst some of greatest humanitarians and philanthropic geniuses ever recorded in modern history—recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize. I personally did not think that he was worth of such lofty honor.
Some would argue that he was the first so-called black president of the United States of America and this alone is significant enough to have awarded him the Nobel Peace Prize honor that was bestowed upon him in 2009. But lets be real, if the decision to grant him a Nobel Peace Prize was on the variable of race (first black president) alone then this should have heighten our suspicion and in my opinion, it did appear up until that point that there was nothing else significant about his career other than the fact that he was hand picked by the Hidden Hand as the first black president. Let me be fair here all United States presidents were handpicked so this phenomenon was not just germane to President Barack Obama. I know that most of what I have written will be tough for those African Americans over sixty to swallow. They just cannot imagine that a so-called black American has the audacity to write and publically criticize President Barack Obama, the first black president. Also the invisible powers for the most part are not a part of the lexicon of the majority of the black community and have very little understanding of their influences over the political, economic and social global systems. And as far as I am concern they just cannot fathom that their vote and the electoral process is rigged and that there is no such thing as democracy. Sorry to tell you Patriotic Americans your vote do not mean a damn thing.
