By Fahim A. Knight-El

People have often asked me, how did I arrived as this present space and time? I have a very simple, but humble answer, which is that along my journey people, took time out with me in my early stages of my conscious development in which to share their experiences and knowledge with me. I now feel a personal and spiritual obligation to do the same and that is one of the reasons I started the Keeping It Real Think Tank and the Keeping it Real Blog site, which was to give back some of the knowledge and wisdom that I had acquired along the way—I have sat under many master teachers, Sages and Gurus—but those teachers that taught me the knowledge of self, I consider those experiences and lessons invaluable. Three Master teachers perhaps shaped my thinking more than others; they were Dr. Yosef A.A. Ben-Johnannan, Kwame Ture and Dr. Khallid Abdul Muhammad as we say in the black conscious circle they broke that thing off in me. They taught the importance of revolution and liberation and gave me a visual of what freedom was supposed to look like. They were serious students of history (furious debaters) and I still heavily rely on their analysis in presenting my worldview. 

I did not attain this knowledge overnight, (knowledge is revealed in degrees according to the Holy Qur'an Sharrieff) as I stated initially I have traveled various Paths, but each experience has brought me to this space and time of where I am right now. The above individuals taught that racism was endemic and racism was to America as cherry pie and baseball was; they never would allow us to forget the importance of our history and culture. They also, equally reminded us never to forget the significance of the raping and robbing of Africa and the 310 year Chattel Slavery experience in which western theoreticians have often downplayed its relevance and significance to people of African descent and their present predicament. Many Eurocentric historians, social scientist and pundits desire for us to overlook the greatest crime that was ever committed against a segment of humanity—they have even accused me of playing the victimization card because I dare to keep this argument front and center. Perhaps in many of their minds they still believed that Europeans were bringing civilization to the 'Dark Continent' (Africa) and because of this cultural arrogant position, it has always led me to abhorring them damn Christian Missionaries (Islamic Missionaries were no different) holding the bible in one hand and supporting slavery on the other hand and everywhere they have gone throughout the earth creating havoc and destruction in the name of God and Jesus. How in the hell do you reconcile this contradiction?

I think history is best qualified to reward all of our research and study. I think everyone has a right to view reality from their faith tradition, but I do not view God as a spook or spirit and I definitely do not believe in that Mystery God. I also disagree that African/African Americans are in their condition because of sin. They are in their condition because of schemes of oppression, imperialism, colonialism, neocolonialism, racism, capitalism and unequal distribution of the world’s wealth, etc., and not by some inherited sin that has been passed down through their bloodline (this belief and contention is the epitome of religious racism). No. Many have used various theological reason and interpretations to justify human suffering. For example, Blacks/Africans are the descendents of the biblical Ham and God cursed the linage of Ham. These backwards religious stories have found their way in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, they were often taught and propelled to justify black inferiority and white superiority. God did not say any such thing, these so-called revealed words of God has been tampered with and used to control the thinking of humanity. I had disassociated myself from organized religion a long time ago. My people who are the original people of the earth has always delved into the Occult, Esoteric and Gnostic—the science of numerology (the spiritual science of numbers), Zodiac, Astronomy, etc., goes back to Ancient Kemet (Egypt). Yes I accept the mathematical science and predictions of numbers that is coded in past, present and future outcomes. The meaning of it all is written in the Sun, Moon and Stars. His 6,000 year ruler-ship ended in 1914 and right now he is existing under grace. History is written 25,000 years in advance then we live it. We are in the 15,000 year of the cycle. No, doubt God is present in the person of the Original Man.

Some years ago, I  became aware of James Cone's works titled, "Black Power and Black Theology" and "Black Liberation Theology" and Cone interpreted the Christianity from the experience of the oppressed (and declared that God was a God of the oppressed) and gives us a profound revolutionary view of Jesus and his mission. His writings sound more like Minister Malcolm X than a Christian theologian. Also, the legendary black theologian Howard Thurman who authored a book titled, "Jesus and the Disinherited",  I advise my readership to get all of Thurman's works; he is unmatched as a theologian.
I have always had nothing but respect for the late Reverend Albert Cleage (Jaramogi Abebe AgyEman) who authored two monumental books relative to Black Liberation Theology titled, "Black Christian Nationalism: New Directions for the Black Church” and “The Black Messiah." Cleage (1911-2000) was the founder of the Shrine of the Black Madonna in Detroit, Michigan. He too taught a revolutionary version of Christianity.

Christianity was part of my upbringing early on in my life; I learned so many good moral and ethical principles from this path and I would not be the person that I am today, if it wasn't for the Bible Study classes because it rooted me in prayer, love, and respect for humanity. I did not turn my back on Christianity, but there was something else pulling at me and I had to investigate this urging in order to fulfill what was taking place inside of me relative to a longing to be connected with the energy of my culture and heritage (I had more questions than the church was accustomed to answering). I felt that Eurocentric Christianity had helped to rob us of the knowledge of self and this system of white supremacy was guiding America's theological ideas and this was evident in the images and symbolism associated with Western Christianity. I knew deep down inside that Isa Bin Yusuf (Jesus the son of Joseph the Arabic connotation of Jesus name) was black and African, but our indoctrination led us to believe that Jesus and all the Biblical prophets were white and European (I have always had a problem with this). Yet, there are some Afrocentric Christian teachers and researchers who are doing yeoman's work to redefine Christianity in our likeness and image. No, doubt, the Ethiopian Coptic Church is the oldest Christian Church in the world, it predated Constantine and the Roman Catholic Church by thousands of years and it even predated Judaism and Islam (these are relatively new faith traditions). So there is enough in the original Christian doctrines that compliments our quest for attaining the truth and I do not have a problem with the true teachings of Yeshuaa Bin Yosef (Jesus the Son of Joseph the Hebrew connotation of Jesus name), as long as the theological and philosophical teachings reflects our culture and tradition. Moreover, the acquisition of knowledge effects each of us differently and our personal experiences factors into this equation and it is these variables that begin to shape and lead us to certain spiritual Paths (when the student is ready the teacher will enter).

When the Europeans Settlers (the dregs of Europe) in the 1600s arrived to the Eastern Seaboard to what they called the ‘New World’ and what eventually would be called the United States of America—there were two million Native Americans so-called Indians (original people) who were also victims of his practices of racism and global genocide of the darker people of the earth. The Aboriginal people of New Zealand and Australia were also victims of systemic practices of racism; the people of India and Asia were victims of his practice of racism. But many who advocate that we are now living in a post-racial era desire to conveniently overlook these racist motivated historical crimes. This is why I have always kept these social issues in the forefront of my discussions; thus, my focus will always be on exposing and bringing greater awareness to the plight of African people and to expose what took place with the original people because of the level of oppression and tyranny they have experienced, which I stated above it is often intentionally overlooked by Eurocentric thinkers and intellectuals. However, for me this isn't about race as much as it is about European and American imperialism—injustice that is what I am exposing (It just happened to be that the people who committed these above mentioned crimes were Europeans).

Throughout history of African Americans and/or black people in the United States there have always been a need for our leaders to address the cultural and social void that had contributed to us being viewed as a marginalized people who had no agreed nationality and after 400 years were disconnected from our homeland of Africa. So I have always appreciated those who sought to bringing solutions that were outside the box because they understood that our problems were deeply rooted and we needed more than the superficial rhetoric of integration and Civil Rights. Pan Africanist, Cultural Nationalist and Black Nationalist groups and organizations such as the All African People’s Revolutionary Party who used co-host African Liberation Day in Washington, DC, Nation of Islam, African Hebrew Israelites of Jerusalem, the New Black Panther Party, Shrine of the Black Madonna, Nation of Gods and Earths, Moorish Science Temple, Nation of Yahweh, the various Kemetic Science Study Groups and the work that Brother Ashra Kwesi does with exposing us to the knowledge of Kemet (he conducts tours to Egypt and take people to the physical temples that were built by our ancestors) and I also tilt my hat to the work that our brother Dr. Ray Hagin is doing as a religious Pan Africanist and Conscious Christian who is working to redefining the image of Christianity in the image and likeness of our African and Kemetic ancestors. He and many others are teaching theology and philosophy to build positive self-esteem and to work to overcome the historical and psychological trauma of what lasted for 310 years and move black people off their dependency on the Federal Government, as well reconnect them back to a history and culture that were robbed and taken from them.

We must read and study and show ourselves approved; moreover, and not be fearful of evaluating and assessing various schools of thought by extracting the best from each and discarding that which doesn't resonate with us. And apply our learning in some form of activism unless we become armchair revolutionaries—Brother Kwame Ture would often tell us to join an African organization. I always tell younger brothers that knowledge is power and knowledge should transform our lives, but we must be true to God and true to ourselves and most of all be true to the people. I consider my library sacred just like some people have prayer rooms in their homes and places where they go and mediate and reflect; that lofty place in my home is my library—the power of books and knowledge takes me to another terrestrial and celestial plane. Perhaps some authors who I have embraced have impacted my mental paradigm more than others such as: Chancellor Williams, John G. Jackson, Cheikh Anta Diop, Ivan Van Sertima, etc.

Reverend Al Sharpton, Marc Morial and Benjamin Jealous, etc., (they all stomped hard for President Obama’s reelection) often these types are more interested in window dressing and cutting deals for themselves (some of them are paid informants and government agents) and yet keep the masses of black people thinking that it is their interest which they are fighting—they do not tell the people that they are recipients of the Carnegie Mellon Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation (and its their agenda that is being pushed). May be part of Al Sharpton’s pay off was to give him a job on MSNBC (supreme black talking head) and you noticed prior to him becoming Obama’s bulldog the organization that he heads National Action Network was inconsequential as a player in the arena of civil rights and now this organization is being viewed on the same level of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)—the media has elevated this Negro as the so-called spokesman of African Americans. I believe Sharpton has had the assignment to silence other so-called American Negroes who would openly criticize President Barack Obama for betraying the “Black Agenda” and therefore, not many black critics were allowed to critique and evaluate his public policy during his first term. They have publically orchesterized Dr. Cornel West and Tavis Smiley for daring to criticizing President Obama in which I agree with West and Smiley and this is not to say that these two aren’t opportunist.

Let me give Sharpton and the Black Congressional Caucus members (Cynthia McKinney, the former Congresswoman from Georgia is one of the few Black elected officials that has demonstrated any backbone and there are none present in congress as bold as she was) a message, if you Negroes desire to do something heroic there is a sister named Assata Shakur (slave named Joanne Chesimard) who has been living in exile for probably close to 30 years in Cuba who escaped from the United States in 1979 as a political prisoner in which President Fidel Castro in 1984 granted her political asylum. She published her autobiography in 1987 titled, “Assata: An Autobiography” she lays out how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (Cointelpro) targeted her because of her activism and involvement in the Black Liberation Army; I also touched on Shakur in an article that wrote titled, “Cuba Has Withstood the Storm of American Imperialism” see link by Fahim A. Knight-El ( 

I am asking them to demand that President Obama pardon Sister Assata Shakur and commute her sentence sense they have his ear and I am even going to go a step further and also ask that he pardon all other black revolutionaries who are still political prisoners from the 1960s and 1970s that still lingers in Federal and State Prisons in the United States as victims of Cointelpro. If former President Bill Clinton could pardon one of the most toxic and notorious white collar criminals in American history named Marc Rich who illegally made millions of dollars in buying and selling Iranian oil when the U.S. Government had sanctions and embargoes against Iran and it was considered illegal to trade with Iran. Rich case was also the largest tax evasion case in U.S. history at that time and he came under the RICO statues as well. He absconded from the United States to Switzerland where he lived in exile as a fugitive for almost 20 years until President Clinton in 2001 in his last day in office issued him a presidential pardon.

I know that I am veering off course: But I also know that President Barack Obama  does not have the power or authority to alter the agenda nor did Governor Mitt Romney regardless of which one of the 2012 presidential candidates would have won the election, they were both commissioned to follow the script. I had been telling those who followed my Blog that Obama had already been chosen for a second term before the November 6, 2012 election day and prior to the Electoral College votes and Popular votes were counted and before the Super Pacs had assembled in their 501-C-4 political strategy room (many still do not understand that there are some Hidden Powers that have always selected all U.S. presidents). This does not say much about our democracy. William Cooper authored his book titled, "Behold the Pale Horse", I believe it was published in 1991. He had thoroughly pointed out that United States had transitioned into a Fascist State and the United States Government pre 9/11 had already enough in its arsenal to tread upon the Civil Liberties of the United States citizens.

No doubt the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has taken the concept of the police State and Big Brother to another level relative to the diminishing of our so-called civil liberties and it is a very scary era that we are presently living under. But these measures have been in the makings for a very long time and unless the American people wake up from their slumber and begin to show and demonstrate some resistance to the increasing police state concept it is going to get more oppressive and reactionary. It does not matter if it’s President Obama or any other controlled dictator occupies the White House—the results are going to be the same. Our democracy had become seriously compromised since the 9/11 hoax because our so-called system of checks and balance pursuant to the three levels of government—Executive, Judicial and Legislative Branches lost the original intent (separation of powers) of what the constitution was trying to prevent (Fascism and Totalitarianism), but we allowed them to transfer all the power to the Executive branch of government. A mistake of great proportional magnitude and will prove to be consequential.

There was a Black Nationalist leader named Yahweh Ben Yahweh (leader of the Nation of Yahweh, a Black Hebrew Israelite sect out of Miami, Florida one may not agree with his theology, but what happened to him was of the utmost importance); in November 1990 he became a trial run (litmus test if you will) and pilot project for how the United States Constitution would become unbinding as the jurisprudence rule of law of the land. The late Yahweh Ben Yahweh was held/detained for months without being formally charged, denied bond, denied the right to an attorney and his 14th Amendment right of due process was denied and this is pre so-called Islamic terrorist being held in Guantánamo Bay Cuba. He was eventually charged and convicted under the RICO statues and shortly upon his release from Federal Prison he died of prostrate cancer in 2007.

It was Florida's State Attorney named Janet Reno that delivered Yahweh to the sacrificial alter. Here is my point, the encroachment of the civil liberties of the American people has been in full affect before the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) enacted by President Obama and U.S. Congress on December 31, 2011. For example, in 1979 the Iranian Revolution with the coming to power of Imam Ayatollah Khomeini and the overthrowing the U.S. puppet Shah Mohammed Reza in which the Iranian Government had billions of dollars in American and European Banks. And based on U.S. Seizure and Forfeiture laws and policies the U.S. Government had the legal ability to freeze Iranian money and assets for over 30 years (once again this sound like what’s written in the present day U.S. Patriot Act before it was enacted). I am talking about the U.S. Government having this authority in 1979. Please go back and read the King Alfred Plan and there is a book that I read many years go authored by Samuel Yette titled: "The Choice: The Issue of Black Survival in America".  Obama without a doubt is one of the most dangerous U.S. presidents of all times, although, he is a pawn and I understand that nothing happens without the approval of the Hidden Elite—he takes orders extremely well and that is why he was rewarded a second term and lastly we had transitioned into a full fledge police state long before President Obama was elected commander-in-chief.

On November 22, 2012, a person had responded to an article that I wrote on my Blog titled: "Seceding From the Union: How do the International Bankers See This Idea?" I explained to him that I totally disagreed with him, if he thought that President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe or some other insignificant dictator in Sudan has brought down the economic Global House (I mistakenly misunderstood his comments). Nevertheless, here was my perspective; they (Mugabe or any other world leaders) are not even players on the chessboard and it was beyond my understanding of how any sane person could draw that conclusion; this notion is an insult to all of us who have dedicated years of research and study to disentangling this web of deception and for someone come up with this reactionary analysis is ludicrous and hold no scholarly merit. President Mugabe hasn’t ever been and will never be part of the Dynastic Families and their inner networking system; those such as the Paul Warburgs, Rothschilds, J.P. Morgan Families, etc., are in a High Elitist Class by themselves; these are just three Dynastic Families who have controlled and manipulated global resources and money for centuries.

There is a second Elitist tier such as the Oppenheimers and the DeBeers who has horded the resources and mineral rights of Africa and Mugabe does not fit into this tier either (Mugabe is a pawn and nothing else, but we all are pawns and modern day slaves for the money changers). It's not President Mugabe that controls the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England or the Bank of International Settlement (he has no influence over global Central Banking; thus the Rothschilds do). Mugabe does not have power to dictate international money interest and inflation—and determine the rise and fall of global currencies. I must tell you straight up there are some much more powerful Hidden and Invisible Forces that determines humanity's political, social, and economic course than some isolated African leader who sit in South East Africa. This Power Elite determines wars, as well as their outcomes, induce famines, controls the flow of money, determines the status of so-called world leaders, etc.

They use the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to reward and punish Developing Nations. Zimbabwe and Africa is in trouble because of European imperialism and neocolonialism. Cecil Rhodes and King Leopold devastated the entire continent of Africa; these Robber Barons stole the gold, diamonds, silver, etc., from beneath the feet of African people and have created the misery that you see throughout the continent of Africa. It is criminal not to look at the history of the International Banking Houses and draw the conclusion that the Rothschilds are directly responsible for Global suffering. Just think about this Money Cartel that has the ability to create money out of thin air and drive humanity like good little Sheepel who voluntarily looking to be led to the slaughter by their masters. The root of the social, political, and economic problems today in Africa had there inceptions in external forces who brought that slave making Christianity (stealing the minds of the indigenous people) and although African nations in the 1960s who fought for independence and liberation, it was superficial sovereignty. But the damage of colonialism would be everlasting and history has proven that it has been long standing.

By Fahim A. Knight-El

I think the question of secession, is really not a new phenomenon, in particular in a state like Texas, which the question of seceding has been on and off the table for a very long time, but let me state right off the back, that I am an advocate of dissent and the constitutionality of their right to exercise their 1st Amendment, 9th Amendment and 10th Amendment right. Our Democracy, it gives us the right to dissent and I do not necessarily think that dissenting is a bad thing as long as it is within the legal guideline and laws of our nation. But I am also of the opinion that the secession movement speaks to how the question of race is still very much unresolved in the United States of America and unless we move beyond the superficial discussions of race; this discussion has to take place regardless of how painful it may be and who the historical culprits were and first admit slavery was a criminal act—It must begin with an open apology from the United States Government and I do not mean no half-hearted conditional apology that the U.S. Congress issued a few years ago and we have to erase the white wash of the historical record of slavery and allow the naked truth to be presented unedited. Minister Louis Farrakhan and Nation of Islam's Historical Research Department published a second edition of their controversial book titled, "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews" and no one has yet to take full responsibly for this 310 year tragedy (not even reparation would make us whole, although it would be justified).

I personally do not give a damn about the south losing the Civil War because African people were the booty of this war (these arguments overlook that there were over 100 million Africans that were unjustly brought to shores of the Americas during the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the Middle Passage). Let me give you just a little glimpse into their treatment, they were sold on auction blocks, divided from wives and children, flog and beaten to death if they showed any opposition or resistance, worked dusk to dawn; denied the ability to read and write, robbed of their culture, traditions, language, names, religion, denied the ability to show love and turned into 'Negroes' and most of all they instilled and imbedded self-hatred in which these practices became inculcated and systemic. If anyone and/or race of people who should be petitioning to seceding from the United States Government, it should be the so-called American Negro (African American, African, Black man, etc)—it was human suffering that was tied to the southern agriculture empires and created an aristocratic class of landlords at the expense of human suffering and dehumanization; this is why the Civil War was fought to diligently maintain the enormous economic interest of the white property owners. Farrakhan's book maintained that it was not just white interest, but Jewish interest; the book, "The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews", points out how cotton was the king of the cash crops in Mississippi and the southern black belt and these Robber Barons transitioned their enormous wealth into what became powerful banking houses in the United States and Europe.

These Confederates do not understand that unless they tackle the international bankers and Federal Reserve who is responsible for their misery and oppression nothing is ever going to change; it becomes hypocritical to think that seceding from the Union is the ultimate solution to resolving their political, economic and social problems and believing that if they secede this would somehow bring economic and social parity to their cause. It is not African Americans or Latinos that have put them in their social and political predicament (this is only a smokescreen), but the Rothschilds—who serve as the chief agitator and manipulator of race is for ever lurking as the Hidden Hand. They constantly feed poor whites and poor blacks a set of norms that is rooted in the history of American race relations, which has an objective of divide and rule. But the re-election of President Obama has exacerbated long standing historical tensions that are rooted in the American politics of race and the seceding rhetoric is the last resort of a dissatisfied sector in mainly old Confederate States. What amazes me is that States like Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, etc., based on per capita income and standard of living ranks as some of the poorest states in the United States, but racism blinds them when it comes to rationality and this often leads them to vote against their own interest. They think that it’s the black and brown problem that is ruining the civility of the United States and they fail to understand that the Dynastic families of Elitist gives them race as a distraction to keep their foot on their and our necks.

They are mere victims of controlled propaganda and even if there was a new Civil War, it would be in the political and economic interest of High Finance and not the interest of some red blooded Confederate who is advocating white American style patriotism. They do not have the guts or intestinal fortitude to declare war on the real slave drivers who sit on Wall Street and manipulate global suffering and has reduced many of these Confederate States down to a WalMart economy. Their impoverishment has been systematically orchestrated and they think the Money Emperors are going to somehow allow them reclaim the south. J.P. Morgan and the Harriman Brothers and the Rothschilds do not give a damn about southern racism and the secession movement, unless it starts to affect their bottom line (their motivation is always based on money and greed). Rothschild stated: "Let me issue and control a Nation's money, and I care not who makes its laws" --Amsel (Amschel) Bauer Mayer Rothschild, 1838

The International Bankers and Wall Street have lured them to sleep and at the sametime have outsourced American industries; many of these Confederate municipalities were the recipients of federal government stimulus money and if it wasn’t for government back incentives many of these States would have been bankrupt. For example, during the vice presidential debate do you recall when Joe Biden reminded Congressman Paul Ryan that he called Biden and submitted an application as a representative of Wisconsin asking for federal stimulus money—the textile economy, automobile industry and all forms of manufacturing have been outsourced to Mexico and South East Asia. Many of these southern Confederate States are right-to-work states where the workers rights are not protected by law and they labor at the pleasure of corporate industries. They ignorantly fight against workers unions (because the media dupes them into believing that to fight for workers rights and labor is to embrace communism and socialism) and most times they literally vote against their own interest. Many of the poor whites in these States have large percentages of whites on government assistance programs such as food stamps and welfare and if it was not for Medicaid they would not have medical care insurance. How do we alter this type of mindset or is the dumbing down process that is so overwhelming and this is an uphill challenge and battle? I am of the belief that change in America is not going to occur until we find better and strategic ways to change the thinking of the American people (I know it’s easier said than done)

The action of the secessionist ideology and movement and behavior quasi demonstrates that they do not fully believe in Democracy and the American Democratic process. I may not agree with some of President Barack Obama's policies, but he was duly elected by the people or may be I should say by the Cabal (I fully understand this variable, but I have to play the devil’s advocate). I do not think that if Mitt Romney would have won the presidential election; these States would not have filed these petitions to secede from the Union because of their disagreements with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and U.S. Patriot Act, I believe these are convenient excuses which to hide their true agendas. For example, the U.S. Patriot Act has been on the books since 2001, as well as other reactionary Executive Orders and legislation has been on the books. But as I stated above, other than the State of Texas who from time to time has consistently advocated secession; the others in my opinion disagreed with the outcome of the presidential election and are now yelling secession. Thus, after the election it has now become politically expedient to use the reactionary and oppressive police state policies as an excuse to justify the rhetoric and not publically man-up that real motivation to secede, which is racism.

Many of the southern Confederate States have never gotten over losing the Civil War. I think it is even more disingenuous to desire to secede not just because of “the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act, and the TSA groping” (these are valid concerns that I share), but the one thing that is being overlooked and  left off the list was the racism variable and factor, which is the main motivation to secede. I cannot question what's in some of these secessionist hearts and minds or their motivation relative to the question of secession and how they see it, but I believe the impetus of this movement is rooted in the history of American racism. They were not looking to secede prior to the 2012 presidential election and the conservative right boasted that they were going to make President Barack Obama a one term president and they put over a billion dollars ensure that he was voted out of office. Now, many of these southern racist Confederates are relating back to the language of the American Revolution and Civil War; we are living in the 21st Century under a so-called Republic that is based on democracy. Here is the problem and issue that I am having, the American people voted overwhelmingly for President Barack Obama, he received over 3 million of the popular votes and he won over 300 of the Electoral College votes (this by all standards was a convincing win within a so-called democratic process). The masses of the American electorate rejected Mitt Romney and the conservative Rightwing Agenda and it was that 47% that he openly condemned who sent him home packing. I thought voting was rooted in liberty and represented the highest form of Democracy. The entire secession rhetoric looks suspicious, in particular right after losing the election now this small minority wants to breakaway from the United States of America.

The history of America speaks for itself. Some of their motivations might be entirely different from my racial analysis, but I am not ready to concede that point—knowing the racial history of the United States. Nevertheless, no one can convince me that many of these secessionists have not found the opportunity to shield themselves behind these petitions (claiming constitutionality and liberty). I live in the south and some of these folk still believe we are in the Civil War era and their interpretation of these historical events are colored and rooted in the history of American style racism. I know what they mean when they say that wanting to go back to the 'old south'. One Blogger tried to downplay my argument by trying to equate my assessment to the Zionist strategy here was my response: “ I think it is unfair to lump the Zionist and anti-Semitism analogy to this argument. I am not suggesting that people should not have the right to assess, criticize, evaluate and condemn any behavior that would be deemed unjust. I think those who are much more powerful than African Americans use their influence and power to stifle debate and label any criticism of Jewish (Zionist) behavior as being anti-Semitism; thus, it takes away from the deep seated moral question—the question of what is right and wrong relative to Zionism without being falsely labeled an anti-Semite. I do not think that’s my motive”.

I think many in Blog Sphere already know by the various post and threads that I have written and posted on my Keeping It Real Blog for the last five years, thus, how I feel about the false flags and my position on 9/11, it surely is not rooted in the government’s version of these events. I have consistently maintained that President Barack Obama is controlled by the Hidden Hand and the Invisible rulers (like all prior U.S. presidents) such as the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg. I know there are a lot of smoking mirrors and I do not think anyone has consistently hammered this position perhaps more than I, in particular on my Blog. But once again, George W. Bush in 2000 literally stole an election and bankrupt our government by being the front man (Rothschild’s puppet) that sent our nation into an economic depression not seen since the Great Depression of 1929. He and Bernanke used the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England and induced an artificial economic crisis in 2008 that has devastated the lives of the American people even to this very day. But guess what as terrible as Bush polices were, in particular in greasing the palms of international bankers and Wall Street financiers to the detriment of the American taxpayers (surely his policies reflected taxation without representation in my opinion it was tyranny) his criminal conduct was allowed to coexist in our democracy. But guess what again his 2000 stolen presidential election mirrored something that you would have expected to occur in a Developing Nation; not in a so-called first world democracy. However, after the United States Supreme Court upheld his election; I cannot recall any 'liberals' mandating secession (although many felt democracy was not served) and looking to breakaway from the Union. Our democracy sustained itself until the next election in which Bush won a second term (for better or worse this election was a little more legitimate). No secession was advocated. I did not hear these Confederates filing petitions to secede and based on Bush running a foul of the United States Constitution and law, they in my opinion would have had more legal justification to seek secession grievances. So yes I am very suspicious of the underline intent of these secessionists.

It is also a valid argument that President Obama continued what George W. Bush initiated because he does not have the power or authority to alter the agenda that has been set by the Invisible Rulers. Once again I had thoroughly condemned and criticized some of the same points made by Dave Hodges in his article referencing Valerie Jarrett. But Hodges and others like him shocks me by loosely throwing out communism as some boogieman theory and they use this 1950 Marxist analysis to scare the hell out of the ignorant—communist are taking over the country this is ludicrous (Wall Street Bankers have always been the Masters of our country). Thus, Communism did not put us in this present crisis, but CAPITALIST international bankers are responsible for our misery.

However, like I stated above, I am not willing to overlook the racial component in this hold idea of secession and many have tried to explain that there are other motivations associated with secession other than race, which I partially agree. But the dismantling of individual rights and State rights were in full effect when Bush started his reign of revoking our civil liberties. The United States Patriot Act was enacted 43 days after the 9/11 hoax in which he and our government flat out lied that it was an Al-Qaeda attack led by Saddam Hussein out of Iraq (not Osama Bin-Laden) on the World Trade Center and the U.S. financial capitol and our mass silence made us culpable because there was no mass resistance or outrage and the results speaks for itself and we have now come full circle.

If these secessionists were genuine, they would have called for mass revolt and resistance during Bush's tenure. But I am also smart enough to know that these 50 states filing these petitions is more of a symbolic gesture because everyone knows that very few of them (States) could maintain and sustain their sovereignty politically, economically or socially—the geopolitical factors and variables are totally against them without some assistance from the United States Government. So in reality, they would be back at square one (looking towards President Obama and the U.S. taxpayers and Congress to subsidize their independence). But in this symbolic secession argument, it is shrouded in the complexity of racism that has allowed them a privilege status who for over 200 years has been the benefactors of living in 'a pigmentocracy'. They would rather stir people up—often poor whites and appeal to a demographic who thinks they share privilege with the white Elite and they do not understand that we all are pawns regardless of ethnicity, nationality, race, skin color, etc.

The secession idea and the timing of such is a serious reverse play on the race card but many of the pundits will only say what is politically correct. I am pointing that factor out. America has a serious history of divided race relations and the secession movement is a prime indication of such. May be some are right about the culmination and fulfillment of time that has brought us to this space and time. But it is the timing of these secessionist that has driven me to take the position that I have taken. The evidence is clear that 9/11 was a hoax and we were duped on relinquishing our civil liberties in the name of national security; our national treasury was heist by Bush and the international bankers—Robbery Barons and money changers. He led the charge in turning the U.S. Constitution into a worthless piece paper. He also, led the United States into two senseless wars in the false name of patriotism I would argue what other convincing evidence would one need to draw the determination that the time for dissent has been imperative for over 10 years. Many who understand the nature of False Flags have been sounding the alarm. You see President Obama is not the problem he only inherited the script.

By Fahim A. Knight-El

I am advocate of legal and peaceful dissent because our United States Constitution affords us that right and it would be hypocritical, if I did not acknowledge that these individuals and States who filed petitions to secede from the United States Government have the right to express dissent and present their grievances in a lawful manner. This is protected under the First Amendment Right of the United States Constitution and I do not think that they should feel any repression from the U.S. Government for seeking separation and sovereignty from the United States Government. This is how Washington State framed its secession petition: “Peacefully grant the State of Washington to peacefully withdraw from the United States and to form its own government. Under the auspices of the 9th and 10th Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America the Citizens of the State of Washington take this grave action in an attempt to wrest sovereignty back unto itself so as to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity”.

Yet, I have always maintained that race is still unresolved in the United States in particular in these neo-confederate States such as Texas (80,000 signatures), Mississippi, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Georgia, Alabama, etc; (the last time I checked over five hundred thousand people had signed onto the various petitions to secede) have been using the election and now re-election of President Barack Obama to antagonize and instigate the fears of mainly poor and oppressed whites in which to appeal to their historical emotions of their ancestors losing the Civil War. I was visiting Savannah, Georgia, perhaps two years ago and there was a convention being held at the Marriott hotel off General McIntosh Boulevard and the Riverfront under the banner of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans and it was a sight to see this nostalgic era being played out in the costumes and replicas of Civil War weapons, etc. The aura in the hotel gave the impression that they were gearing up to fight and reclaim the South for a second time.

Our Government has become tyrannical, totalitarian and Fascist in which some people are angered about the direction that our nation is headed and view the federal government as impeding on their personal rights and State's rights with impunity. I would agree with this much of their argument; it is no longer a government of the people by the people and for the people. Some Patriots feel that their liberty has been further stomped upon by the reactionary policies of President Barack Obama and the election served as proof positive for the necessity to declare themselves free of Union rule (I would be the first to admit that this sounds like an 18th or 19th century scenario and debate and not an issue of serious modern relevance applicable to the 21st century). Yet, if you do not know by now, these people are serious about seceding from the United States (I must also admit that this is no homogenous or monolithic voice echoing these sentiments, it is perhaps more like a woven together blanket of various ideologies, which ranges from the Ku Klux Klan, Militia groups, strict constitutional constructionist, Tea Party loyalist, Sons/Daughters of the Confederate Veterans, etc., to the far the rightwing of the Republican Party and many other dissatisfied white Americans. They consider themselves as so-called good and God fearing Christians who want to separate from a nation that has become increasingly black and brown. We better play close attention because these petitions could gain momentum. I am of the belief that even the submission of the petition of itself could be considered acts of treason and sedition.

I am assuming that this is a white led movement and if secession is granted, how do some of these states deal with large populations of Latinos (Hispanics), Asians and African Americans and would they be accepted as part of the seceding sovereignty? Many that hold this rightwing agenda of seceding from the Union believe that race—interpreted to mean that black and brown is the problem with America and represents that 47% class that Mitt Romney depicted as looking for government handouts. The variable of race serves as an antagonist contradiction; they could not imagine the Super Pacs spent almost 6 billion dollars collective during this 2012 election season and spent over 2 billion dollars just on the presidential election in which Karl Rove assured the Rightwing that he would deliver them the presidency. Will the elected governors of these states serve as the new presidents of these various proposed new sovereign nations and territories? How will the mineral rites and natural resources be dealt with? Will these sovereign nations be allowed to have their own independent arm forces on U.S. soil and most of all will they be permitted to enter into international treaties and agreements with enemy nations of the United States? What will be their arrangement with the United States relative to who will control the vital and strategic ports and waterways that are of most important to the United States national security? The notion of seceding as one can tell is a complex theory and will pose problems for the petitioners and the United States.

There is conservative website named RedState led by Erik Erickson who has from time to time endorsed the idea of Texas (the lone Star State) having the right to secede from the Union and even Texas Governor and United States Presidential candidate Rick Perry has endorsed the seceding movement from time to time. Now, reason with me, because I have to point out the double standard in order to bring some balance to this article and this is where me and most white patriots part ways; just take a moment and imagine if Muslims in the United States were to have filed this same type petitions and ask for a state which to secede and separate from the United States and declare themselves as a government inside a government. There would have been tremendous outrage spewed by the ignorant that Muslims would establish a sovereign state based on Sharia rule and some of these same liberty seekers would be opposed to Muslims seeking to secede from the Union; moreover, they would not even be allowed to have this type conversation without persecution and prosecution. This automatically would have called for intense Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny and surveillance, and no doubt it would have been met by the long arm of the U.S. Patriot Act, Military Commission Act, Anti-Terrorism Acts, National Defense Authorization Act, United States Justice Department and any other arsenal at the disposal of the office of Homeland Security could use to halt such an action that would be viewed as anti-American and the question of secession in of itself could be considered a declaration of war. These individuals filing these type petitions and anyone associated with them relative to post 9-11, perhaps could be argued that they should be classified as Enemy Combatants and enemies against the State (this government recourse is not without precedent).

For example, Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale (founders of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense) and George and Jonathan Jackson (Soledad Brothers) and other black revolutionaries were prime targets of the United States Government counterintelligence program dubbed Cointelpro by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. The United States Government implemented massive and widespread acts of repression aimed at all levels of the Black Power Movement for daring to declare themselves a self-defense organization that advocated Black Nationalism and who evoked the Second Amendment Right to bear arms and even raised the question of secession. Many of these black freedom fighters lost their lives and others received long term prison sentences like the Panther 21 and others like Elmer ‘Geronimo’ Pratt who was wrongly convicted and after serving over 25 years in California State Prison system was exonerated, Mumia Abu-Jamal (Philadelphia Chapter of the Black Panther Party) who still languishes in the American penal institution with a death warrant over his head.

The Black Panther Party had a 10 Point Plan; which number 10 stated: “When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation”.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience hath shown that mankind are most disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But, when a long train of abuses and usurpation, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

The United States Government took all actions to disrupt and neutralize militant and radical black leadership and worked to compromise their organizational effectiveness by sending U.S. Government agent provocateurs who were used to instigate and cause internal confusion in order to incite police, which led to many Panthers losing their lives at the hands of racist police. Eldridge Cleaver in 1968 published his most famous book titled, “Soul on Ice” in which he wrote a very interesting letter to then Governor Ronald Reagan requesting that he be pardoned and sentence be commuted (Cleaver declared himself a political prisoner). Many do not know that Cleaver while serving prison time had converted to the Nation of Islam and teachings of Elijah Muhammad. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad also advocated separation and secession and many do not know that the Black Panther Party "10 Point Plan" was drawn from the Black Muslims and Nation of Islam Program “What the Muslims Want” and “What the Muslims Believe” Muhammad stated: “We want our people in America whose parents or grandparents were descendants from slaves, to be allowed to establish a separate state or territory of their own--either on this continent or elsewhere. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to provide such land and that the area must be fertile and minerally rich. We believe that our former slave masters are obligated to maintain and supply our needs in this separate territory for the next 20 to 25 years--until we are able to produce and supply our own needs”.
“Since we cannot get along with them in peace and equality, after giving them 400 years of our sweat and blood and receiving in return some of the worst treatment human beings have ever experienced, we believe our contributions to this land and the suffering forced upon us by white America, justifies our demand for complete separation in a state or territory of our own”

They hailed one bright spot in this recent presidential election relative to electing close to 30 Republican Governors (or adding to the Republican count of conservative governors) and I am willing to bet you these are some of the States who filed petitions to secede from the United States. Here is how the state of the Commonwealth of Virginia petition read: “As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776: "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." "...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

They are masters at disguising their real intent by hiding behind politics. Many of today’s secession movement still possess a 16th and 17th century colonial mentality in which in their worldview, as well as their paradigm has been shaped by historical nostalgia and from this mindset, Chattel Slavery and the Civil War (1861-1865) are also unresolved (the Dred Scott Decision and the Missouri Compromise) and other slave legislation (they believe that at some point they will redeem themselves relative to losing the Civil War and will one day physically fight to regain their great, great great, great grandparents glory). These States are hiding behind their so-called political dissatisfaction, but from a white supremacy perspective, they are more angered that our country is being led by President Barack Obama, a black man and they would rather secede from the Union, then to remain under his ruler-ship for another four years. But here is the contradiction they claim to be advocates of patriotism and democracy and possess a deep seated belief in liberty. But I thought in theory the Revolutionary War (1770-1776)—Declaration of Independence with the 16 Colonies breaking away from the ruler-ship and domination of Great Britain and the U.S. Constitutional Conventions held in Philadelphia (the city coined the city of brotherly love, which is direct Masonic lingo) and culminated with the formulation of the U.S. declaring itself one nation. Furthermore, U.S. Constitution in 1787 was rooted in the principles of freedom, justice and equality (and I was taught that the Civil War was fought to keep this nation one and unified). Many revisionist historians agree and maintained as Charles A. Beard wrote in his treatise titled: "An Economic Interpretation of the United States Constitution" (1913) the constitutional language in principle and intent favored white male property owners. Thus, white women and blacks were permitted from voting, which lie the bases of American democracy. Blacks were written in the U.S. Constitution as chattel (property) and were deemed 3/5 of a human being.

The South lost the Civil War and most reasonable historians would agree that slavery was the central issue of the Civil War (1861-1865) because it was the economic driving force of the nation at that time and perhaps the most value commodity in the History of America; but one should not be mistaken because the North and the South benefited from slave labor. I recently read a piece authored by Donald W. Livingston titled, “Why the War Was Not About Slavery” Livingston stated: “We think of slavery as an alien and "un-American" practice confined to the South in the 19th century. But an honest look at American history reveals a quite different picture. Slavery was woven into the economic, political, and cultural fabric of the Northern states from the beginning. The first African slaves were brought to New England in 1638 in exchange for enslaved Indians. Boston began importing slaves from Africa in 1644. For 164 years New Englanders sold slaves throughout the Western Hemisphere”. Jefferson Davis and Robert Lee, the faces of the Confederate South had declared that the South would secede from the Union before they would capitulate and give up slavery. The South viewed slavery strictly as an economic necessity (we have always questioned the moral ineptness of this evil institution) and these wealthy white property owners were not willing to cripple their profitable economic enterprise by giving up their labor force without a fight. Some African Americans view Abraham Lincoln as a hero because he so-called freed the slaves on September 22, 1962 with the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation (but actually it would ultimately be the Thirteen Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1965 that truly abolished slavery); however the slaves that he freed in the Confederate South, he had no jurisdiction over those slaves.

Lincoln used the issue of slavery as a strategic and tactful maneuver to create social and political tension for the Confederates and to create military discord in order to disrupt South‘s efforts to succeed from the Union. Most Historians have argued that if Lincoln could have maintained the Union and kept slavery as an institution, he would have done exactly that and for that reason this writer does not view Lincoln as a philanthropic humanitarian who valued black people in this over-all conflict. J.A. Rogers gives this assessment in his book titled, “Africa’s Gift to America: The Afro-American in the Making and Saving of the United States : With New Supplement, Africa and Its Potentialities”.
I have been a harsh critic of President Barack Obama since he appeared on the radar as a presidential candidate in 2008 as a Rothschild, Rockefellers and Kissinger agent, but to those who are not aware of these entities, perhaps view his two elections as the greatest form of democratic expression—this was seen in Obama receiving over three and half million of the popular vote (surely one could argue that the people had spoken) and received over 300 electoral College votes. This negative sentiments and backlash represents the racial and historical divide in the United States.

However, some would further, argue that the Civil War was about States rights and this has been debated since the formulation of the United States as a government and nation in 1787—federal authority (central government) versus States right to exercise self-determination; but no one could deny that slavery created a political rift and social tension between two bourgeoisie classes of white men (aristocratic property owners from the North and South). This was the primary reason the southern states were literally up in arms. The North (the Union Army and leadership) were mandating that the south give up their most valuable asset, which was free slave labor. Agriculture and farming was the economic way of life for the South and it was African slaves for 310 years who plowed, planted, excavated and worked from dawn to dusk (never even received the 40 acres and a mule for their servitude).

This free labor created a power Elite aristocratic class and even to this day their wealth has transcended time and eventually was used to establish banking houses. The cotton gin was a relatively new invention and technology had not advanced enough to do away with the need for human labor. And to this very day the farms and fields (agri-business) of America are full of brown hands (migrant workers who moves with the planting seasons and is even allowed work visas to enter the United States from Mexico and other Central and South American nations) picking the cotton, tobacco, vegetables, fruits and all manner of produce that sustains this nation (the Latinos are the new slaves). Slavery was an integral part to making America a wealthy society; thus, before the factories in the North became the focal point of American business, it was agriculture (numerous of cash crops ranging from cotton to tobacco). Also the early American settlers could not have survived without the Indians who literally saved the very people who would later exterminate them, and the African Slaves who built the early infrastructure of the United States have been left as second class citizens and vagabonds of the earth. The U.S. economy was built and dependent on slavery; many of the Founder Fathers of this nation and the framers of the U.S. Constitution were vast landowners and slaveholders.Will these people who are looking to secede from the United States represent the impetus and beginning of an internal Civil War?

The Invisible Rulers have spoken by ‘reselecting’ President Obama to continue being their servant for the next four years. Some would immediately take issue with me using the term ‘selected’ because they have seen that President Obama had won the popular vote and won the electoral college vote (in their Sheepel minds it was their/our voting that reseated President Obama as commander-in-chief) this is the furthest thing from the truth. His selection is evidence that he did a very good job as a loyal servant and his continuation in the Oval Office is his reward (President Obama is a loyal, but is a dangerous puppet to the interest of the masses). Many African American voters in this 2012 presidential election came out in record numbers in which President Obama captured over 93% of the black vote, 71% of the Latino vote and 45% of the Caucasian vote. May be these numbers should require him to be more politically respectful to his most loyal base by being more accountable to them. No doubt President Obama put together a masterful plan to defeat Mitt Romney and just imagine a lobbyist like Karl Rove and the Super Pacs spent anywhere from 300 million to 1 billion dollars to defeat President Obama and they lost dismally. It surely would take more money than that to defeat the Rothschilds and Rockefellers—Fort Knox does not have enough money to outspend nor out influence the real Super Pacs who are the Invisible International Bankers and for this election they put their money behind President Obama.

Obama’s constituents were not concern about his foreign policy record, but to their credit many did understand that he had inherited an induced bankrupt government from the mess that George W. Bush had created. Yet, they also saw Congressman John Boehner and Congressman Mitch McConnell as mean spirited hypocrites who were part of the Congress that allowed Bush to heighten the national deficit and showed no fiscal restraints and had created huge tax incentives for the rich and wealth-holders of the United States to the detriment of the poor. Many Americans since 2008 have personally felt the pain of the wealth disparity and just could not imagine turning this country back over to a John Wayne style government. Their (Romney and the good ole boys) only response to resolving America’s economic woes was centered on further assaulting the poor and middle class and giving the wealthy a blank check (no pun intended). The American people with this presidential election saw through this false blame game and many are asking the same question, why cannot the wealthy bear more of the responsibility?

Just as in 2008 they were still cheering for America's first black president and they felt that their immediate future would be better off under an Obama led administration than the Republican Mitt Romney. I initially thought that the enthusiasm that he had garnished four years ago had waned and that many did not see the progressive change which he so eloquently articulated as candidate Barack Obama in 2008 and that there were going to be a political backlash for his failure to deliver on the change that he promised the American people. I know in North Carolina the right was using some ignorant black preachers to theologically whip their black congregants into not voting for President Obama because of his position on same sex marriages whether I agree or disagree with LGBT agenda, but what gets me the most is using that damn Bible to control and manipulate people’s fears. It was a shrewd strategy in particular in the Bible belt south where I live. These black and white folk are crazy over the Bible—yet Sunday morning still remains one of the most segregated days in America..  

I also think that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and the conservative right scared the hell out of most sensible American people with their fiscal outcast, but wasn't willing to impose any new taxes on the wealthy by mandating that they pay a higher percentage tax rate in order to generate more revenue for state and federal government and to relieve some of economic tension. This election should be looked at as referendum that turned back two candidates and a party that are insensitive to the 'Have nots'; that 47% that Governor Romney so eloquently condemned as looking for government handouts and stated that they would not be his focus (however on election night they made him their focus by turning him back). Yes, I understood black people’s euphoria (I as a so-called African American could totally relate to their experience and their love and commitment to President Obama). I stayed up on election night watching the results come in. Thus, my wife and daughter went on to sleep, but I wanted to see and hear the end results for myself. But remember I had been telling those on this Blog that President Barack Obama had already been 'selected' for a second presidential term; this decision was decided long before any electoral ballots were cast.

However, like some, I was cheering for President Obama, perhaps because of being part of a marginalized people as well as, being part of a subjugated and oppressed class of people, which on election night this historical and cultural phenomenon had created strange bedfellows (me and Obama on the same team); although, I know the truth (meaning our vote do not mean a damn thing) to be quite honest my emotions got the best of me for that moment, but I immediately came to my senses with the understanding that nothing was going to change and that it was going to be business as usual. I still felt good inside knowing that this African American brother will get a second term in spite of American style racism. Those who are not African American and do not share our collective experience will never understand what it means for a people to rise from the ashes as the Phoenix Bird and now one of them sit as the president of the most powerful nation on earth. Many Blacks over 50 years of age did not believe in their lifetime that they would live to see a Black U.S. president. However, I think we have put more in the perceived symbolism of Obama’s two elections and have paid little attention to the substance of his domestic and foreign policy and it’s this variable that makes us prime targets for the duping.  

But most Blacks (and for the matter most people from around the globe in general) do not know or understand that President Obama is a pawn for the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg and Trilateral Commission—they are the true global agenda setters. These Power Elite Groups are not illusions; these are real people that rule the world within well structured organizations that influence U.S. Politics and world affairs. This is not some conspiracy theory, but everything that I have written can be verified and has been proven by others who specialize in decoding the Invisible Rulers plots. Most people have yet to realize and do not know there are some serious problems with our so-called democracy. Whether it was Obama or Romney overseeing the White House, it really would not have mattered because someone more powerful than they will be pulling the purse strings and dictating how our government will move. Furthermore, critical analysis is very much needed in our nation in particular when all our news is sanitized by the corporate media and they constantly feed us propaganda, which contributes to the ‘dumbing’ down process and most of all keeping us under control. I have no trust or faith in politicians this includes President Obama, he is really not our guy and I do not care about his charisma and charm or given the impression that he is sensitive to our causes in the long run he has an agenda that must be carried out. We so-called live in a free society in which this allows me and others the privilege to expose some of the things that you will not read about in the mainstream media.

President Obama in less than four years through a campaign of master lies and deceptions and with brut military enforcement has delivered the Invisible Rulers almost the entire North African region and in lieu of these events one must come to the understanding that the assassination of United States Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens in Benghazi was expendable and an inconsequential act in the grand scheme of so-called Middle Eastern politics.  Although, the last time that I fact checked my geography Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, etc., sits on the continent of Africa. The CIA staged the coup in Libya against the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and it was the United States Government who was behind the political uprising that took place in Libya against Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. They had been seeking Qaddafi’s removal from power since the early 1970s in which Qaddafi made tactical and strategic errors by accepting an olive branch from President George W. Bush in early 2003 and 2004 (this was the beginning of the setup and eventually would lead to his downfall).

The U.S. eventually lifted some of the embargoes and economic sanctions against Libya and invited Libya back into the diplomatic fold, which lured the revolutionary Qaddafi to sleep (credit Qaddafi’s assassination to President Barack Obama). And if you understood international politics, it was not about Qaddafi but it is was about the United States securing her future vital interest by overtaking the Libyan oil fields and for those who do not know that Africa is of strategic future interest to the U.S. (Europe and China) from a resource perspective. The continent of Africa will determine the global future balance of power in which the United States is fully aware of the importance of Africa and in order to remain and sustain themselves as a continued future world superpower they have a vested interest in controlling Africa. Therefore, the control of Tripoli looms high within that dynamic and President Obama has placed the United States in a good position to influence the oil and wealth of Libya, Africa for generations to come.

Obama even took care of one of America's long time puppets in former Egyptian President Honsi Mubarak and it will be U.S led influence and not the Muslim Brotherhood who will behind installing an even better and more loyal puppet regime in Egypt that will work even harder on securing the Israeli Borders from so-called Islamic terrorist crossing the borders of Egypt and entering into Israel (it is Israeli security that is the number one priority in that region and Middle Eastern stability is a distance second). President Obama allegedly assassinated Osama Bin-Laden (for those who are political astute and conscious know that the Bin-Laden’s assassination was a hoax because this man had been dead 6-8 years before the U.S. Government scenario played out in the media).  The so-called number one world terrorist that for over a decade had an outstanding warrant over his head was not murdered by U.S. Navy Seals who allegedly violated the sovereignty of Pakistan by carrying out a U.S. led operation on Pakistani soil, which has so-called soured international relations between the two nations. President Obama even ordered drones to be flown into Yemen and assassinated Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki. These above events alone give President Barack Obama an impressive, but reactionary portfolio (make no mistake about it he is a cold blooded killer). He has accomplished feats that not even the warmonger George W. Bush could accomplished during his presidential tenure.

But I think since 9/11 there has been an established template and each president that would come after George Bush would be mandated to adhere and they have created a playbook for an entire system of "new normals". For example, we thought that it could not get any worst relative to the erosion of U.S. citizen’s civil liberties that came into the play with the passing of U.S. Patriot Act in 2001, which diminished the legal intent of the U.S. Constitution. However, the 'democratic' president Barack Obama and Congress on December 31, 2012 passed the reactionary National Defense Authorization Act, which makes the U.S. Patriot Act looks like child's play. I believe that the political agenda has already been set by the Invisible Rulers and Obama’s next four years has already been scripted. And I must submit to you that with his election nothing is going to change for the 'Have nots', because he just like Governor Romney will only be working in the interest of serving as a buffer between the Dynastic Families, the International Banking Houses and 'Have nots' (his mission will be to continue to keep the wealth safe guarded and secured in the hands of Dynastic Cabal and their front bankers on Wall Street).

I am just not optimistic about his reelection, because I know that all we did on November 6, 2012 by voting, was only a mere political pacification for the masses who still believe that we live in a democracy and if it is a democracy, I will feel more comfortable calling it a corporate democracy. America stands divided not merely based on politics or political differences—the division is rooted in racism and even in 2008 President Barack Obama tried to hail his 'election' to the highest office of the land as a representation of social progress, which signified a new era in Civil Rights, Human Rights and claimed that we had stepped in a new historical era of post-racial politics. His Handlers have always tried to present him as a neutral candidate and leader—in skin color and in his approach to politics (black politicians are the only ones who cannot show any open affinity towards their own black political base and constituency). I think initially that even President Obama himself thought that we had transitioned. Yes, I know what he meant as far as on the surface, but I will instruct him and all of America to go back to the electoral map and view those states below the Mason Dixie line that were classified as Red States and even to this day, the social-politics of these southern Red States are rooted in a segregationist history of the past. I will base what I perceive as social progress in the United States, only when I see these Red States begin to make visible social progress by breaking with a racial tradition of segregation and discrimination.

I was proud to see in 2008, that North Carolina and Virginia (and Romney barely won North Carolina in 2012) break ranks in these past two elections with the covert political ideology that has been steeped in the Old South Tradition. The U.S. Secret Service has not publically exposed the tons of assassination threats that have been made on President Obama’s life (often the motivation for these threats were not based on ideology or political differences, but about his race). President Obama and his family have been unjustly racially ridiculed and were even called a liar from the floor of Congress by the congressman Joe Wilson from South Carolina (what disrespect).  When he was elected in 2008 immediately gun sells and ammunition sells skyrocketed and there has been a huge increase in white militia groups and even has been a resurgence in the Ku Klux Klan.

For example, and let me digress a bit in order to explain how racial double standards works in a society that was built on racism and injustice. Thus, you didn't hear the political pundits expose and demand that Governor Mitt Romney repudiate the Mormon (the Church of Latter Day Saints) and that is not to say that some writers and critics didn't talk about his association with this fringed religious organization (whom most sociologist would deem as a cult) and yet during Obama's first election in 2008, he was called to repudiate, condemn, and disassociate himself from Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright and Trinity United Church of Christ and were forced to disavow the theological teachings of Black Liberation Theology in order to appear more 'electable' as a black presidential candidate. This is an example of the power of racism and yet up until 1978, the Mormon Church taught an extreme version racial hatred aimed at African Americans and people of African descent. However, I do think the entire question and equation of race is instigated by external provocateurs and is given a premise to exist, which to divert attention from what is really going on and is designed to consume humanity in useless battles of artificial barriers (divide and conquer schemes). Since I know this and is very clear about this, perspective and motive, then it might appear as a contradiction to many of my readers who access my Keeping It Real Blog site, in particular only to see the number of Blogs that I have dedicated relative to the question of race and politics in the United States.

The psyche of black humanity in the U.S. was partially shaped by oppression and racism (I must admit to my readers that I to am a victim of this social history and my views will forever reflect that reality); these variables had deep and everlasting affects on the psychological and collective conscious of my people who were deemed Chattel Slaves (1555-1865). Thus, right after slavery the United States Supreme Court in 1896 passed Plessy Versus Ferguson decision (Separate, But Equal), which issued in Jim Crow laws and legal segregation. This period lasted until 1954 (Brown V. The Board of Education) until the High Court struck down Plessy V. Ferguson and declared Separate but Equal as being unconstitutional. This social and political history created a political and social dichotomy in America—blacks were never accepted as "full Americans" and have always been orchesterized for embracing nationalism. Dr. W.E.B. Dubois wrote about this in his book titled, “Souls of Black Folk”.

So, Black Liberation Theology evolved out of a need for blacks to reaffirm their religious identity in the same way there was a need to re-affirm their "Americanism" by forcing America to live up to its creed as it was written in the language given in the United States Constitution. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. socially agitated and this led to the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act. These were necessary steps to ensure that the question of race did not enter into the legality of this democracy and our jurisprudence system needed to reflect these measures. But it does not matter how much you legislate, you can not dictate or control people and individuals attitudes—group norms, folkways, mores, values, etc. The culture of racism has become entrenched in the U.S. and even in the Christian and religious doctrines of America. The religious teachings, images, symbolism, etc., reflected the dominant culture and Black Liberation Theology articulated by James Cone, Cecil Cone, Gayraud Stephen Wilmore and others sought to balance this equation.
