Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Texas Lynches Another Black Martyr

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - A North Texas man convicted in the fatal shooting of a teenager during a carjacking outside a nightclub 12 years ago has been executed.

Forty-year-old Ronnie Threadgill received lethal injection Tuesday evening in Huntsville less than two hours after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-day appeal.

Threadgill expressed love to friends and supporters and said he was "going to a better place."

He was pronounced dead almost 30 minutes later.

Attorneys for the 40-year-old Threadgill argued his case deserved review because he had deficient legal help during his 2002 capital murder trial when he was sentenced to die for the killing of 17-year-old Dexter McDonald.

State attorneys contended the appeal was only an attempt to delay the punishment.

The execution is the third this year in Texas.

Despite the phony wars between Democrats and Republicans, there is consistency at the top. Ever since the Ronald Reagan presidency Democrats and Republicans have done their best to put and keep the malefactors of great wealth, the 1%, on top. Barack Obama has done nothing to alter this awful trend. Like all of his predecessors he would never have become president if he hadnt sided with the ruling classes.

That simple fact explains everything the president has done to date and eliminates any pretense of mystery surrounding his actions regarding budget negotiations. His decisions to convene a deficit cutting cat food commission and to propose austerity measures including cuts to Social Security and Medicare are easily understood when the foundations of our system are understood.

We do not live in a true democracy. We live in a country controlled by corporate interests and wealthy individuals. They are the rulers and they determine who does and doesnt serve in public office and what those people can and cannot do. They choose the politicians before we know their names and Barack Obama is exhibit A in that regard. There is a nationwide casting call made up of rich, influential people who give a thumbs up or down to potential presidential candidates. The people who promise to work on their behalf get the yea vote before anyone votes in Iowa or New Hampshire. That is how the ruling class works.

Barack Obamas name was new to most Americans when he spoke at the 2004 Democratic convention but his presence there was proof that he already had buy-in from the movers and shakers and that he was planning his run for the presidency even then. The ambitious senator knew where his bread was buttered and showed his acumen and his loyalties early.

In 2006 Obama was only in his second year in the senate when he spoke at an event convened by the Brookings Institutions Hamilton Project, a neo-liberal think tank created by Clinton administration treasury secretary Robert Rubin and deputy secretary Roger Altman. The video of Obamas speech shows us that the austerity measures being carried out today were being planned even then and the Rubins and Altmans of the world knew they had someone who could get away with doing what Republicans could only dream about.

The Tower of Basel: Secretive Plans for the Issuing of a Global Currency
Do we really want the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) issuing our global currency
This carefully research article by Ellen Brown was first published in April 2009. It sheds light on the current crisis of the World monetary system.(GR ed. M. Ch.)

In an April 7 [2009] article in The London Telegraph titled The G20 Moves the World a Step Closer to

a Global Currency, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard wrote:

A single clause in Point 19 of the communiqu issued by the G20 leaders amounts to revolution in the global financial order.

We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity, it said. SDRs are Special Drawing Rights, a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund that has lain dormant for half a century.

In effect, the G20 leaders have activated the IMFs power to create money and begin global quantitative easing. In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it.

Indeed they will. The article is subtitled,The world is a step closer to a global currency, backed by a global central bank, running monetary policy for all humanity. Which naturally raises the question, who or what will serve as this global central bank, cloaked with the power to issue the global currency and police monetary policy for all humanity? When the worlds central bankers met in Washington last September, they discussed what body might be in a position to serve in that awesome and fearful role. A former governor of the Bank of England stated:

[T]he answer might already be staring us in the face, in the form of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).... The IMF tends to couch its warnings about economic problems in very diplomatic language, but the BIS is more independent and much better placed to deal with this if it is given the power to do so.1

And if the vision of a global currency outside government control does not set off conspiracy theorists, putting the BIS in charge of it surely will. The BIS has been scandal-ridden ever since it was branded with pro-Nazi leanings in the 1930s. Founded in Basel, Switzerland, in 1930, the BIS has been called the most exclusive, secretive, and powerful supranational club in the world. Charles Higham wrote in his book Trading with the Enemy that by the late 1930s, the BIS had assumed an openly pro-Nazi bias, a theme that was expanded on in a BBC Timewatch film titled Banking with Hitler broadcast in 1998.2 In 1944, the American government backed a resolution at the Bretton-Woods Conference calling for the liquidation of the BIS, following Czech accusations that it was laundering gold stolen by the Nazis from occupied Europe; but the central bankers succeeded in quietly snuffing out the American resolution.3

just to set the facts straight:
Worst attack on U.S. soil: 09/11/2001
Man responsible for attack: Osama bin Laden
POTUS: George W Bush
How long did it take for Pres. Bush to bring Osama to Justice: HE DIDN'T
Boston Marathon Bombing: 04/15/2013
Men responsible for attacks: Tsarnaev brothers
POTUS: Barrack Obama
How long did it take for Pres. Obama to bring Tsarnaev brothers to justice: 5 days
OH & BTW President Obama brought Osama to justice
THOSE ARE THE FACTS
oh, i thought it was the Navy Seals and they dragged Obama off the golf course for the photo.

i guess these attacks don't count.

with Obama we have had at least 4 and counting. Its clear we were much safer under Bush than Obama. Lets count the attacks:

1. The underwear bomber - His bomb didn't work but he had the intent and he was not caught before he detonated his bomb.
2. Fort Hood shootings
3. Times Square bomb - only stopped because it fizzled and civilians passing by noticed the smoke coming from the car.
4. Benghazi (Embassies are on US soil in foreign countries and are considered an act of war so I count this)
5. Boston Marathon

i thought Obama spoke very well right after the Boston bombings--unlike when he jumped to the wrong conclusion about the last incident in Boston that required that "beer summit", and I thought his speech yesterday in Boston was outstanding.

but will we, four years from now, like with the Fort Hood terrorist (the terrorism Obama still refers to as workplace violence) be hearing whether this terrorist has a right to grow a beard and is complaining about his lawyers while he lives well in a prison waiting for a trial?

If the population of illegal immigrants has declined (a dubious proposition), it is only because economic prospects for Mexicans are better in Mexico than in the US during the Obama Depression.

The Obama plan to ship jobs to Mexico is working.
