The Washington establishment and Wall Street ganged up on main-street when President Barack “Wall Street” Obama authorized the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to organize a coordinated police-state crackdown on the middle class folks of the Occupy movement, as if we lived in the old Soviet Union and he was Joe Stalin.
This means the “change” and “hope” on which Obama campaigned for president in 2008 was always a lie, fraud and deceit. That’s always been obvious, but never more so than now. In the war for control of our economic and political destinies, Obama, as usual, has chosen to be an all conquering political mercenary of Wall Street in its continuous and parasitic raping and pillaging of the livelihoods and futures of the adults and children of the patriots of the middle class.
At some point prior to the police attacks on the Occupy movement, it’s likely the parasites of Wall Street got nervous about the movement and called upon their investor class president to voice their concerns. It wasn’t difficult to convince him to use the power of the state to attempt to eradicate the middle class threat of the Occupy Movement. Wall Street has given Obama more money than they have given to all the Republican Party candidates combined so far during the 2012 election cycle.
But Obama had to be careful. He needs the votes of working people to win reelection. So he can’t let us know that he is the latest master mind of our financial and political rape and pillage by the 1 percent; but only one person could have authorized DHS to plan the attacks and that person is Obama.
The Department of Homeland Security is a cabinet level position. Does anybody really think the crackdown wasn’t discussed during cabinet meetings, or in conversations between the DHS head, Janet Napalitano, and Obama.
Obama chose to let his underling Napalitano do his dirty work, but not until after the 1 percent had used their corporate media to launch a public relations assault to paint the Occupiers as shiftless, homeless, drug abusers; not to mention criminal thugs. The corporate media throughout the nation swift boated the Occupiers by attributing any alleged rise in crime anywhere near the Occupy encampments to the Occupiers themselves, without so much as a scrap of evidence to support their claims. For example, the Oregonian newspaper, a propaganda outlet of the 1 percent, followed their orders to perfection in their slanderous attempts to turn public opinion against the Portland Occupiers.
As the public relations campaign began, at Obama’s behest, DHS officials called a meeting or meetings with eighteen city mayors, who then developed a coordinated plan and timing of the attacks, which are now history.
One thing is obvious, or rather more obvious. Obama is Wall Street’s president. He’s not ours. He never was. There’s something worse; a vote for Obama is a vote for the barons of Wall Street and a vote for middle class destruction.
It’s true all the Republican candidates are also in bed with Wall Street, like prostitutes, like Obama. But one has to remember that only the zealously anti-communist Richard Nixon could go to China. A Republican president could never privatize Social Security, or harm middle class people in the manner that a Democratic president could, because only a Democrat could do that, or pass NAFTA, or pass the Telecommunications Act. Obama might be a greater danger to working people in his second term than any Republican because he won’t need their votes ever again.
Maybe we need an Occupy candidate for 2012. Even if the Democrats lose the White House because of the candidacy of an Occupier, what have working people got to lose? How about nothing? We’ll either get a Republican or Democrat Wall Street candidate. The establishment of an Occupier political party and a 2012 presidential candidate could be the beginning of something important, like building a movement from the ground up and putting a real man or woman of the people in the white house in 2016.
Obama thinks it’s a good thing for people to have “hope” for “change” so long as those people live in another country that is hostile to the United States. However, the people ruled by any friendly government shouldn’t have those aspirations, especially citizens of the United States.
