Obama Channels Bush Channeling Orwell

Obama Bush Dont Ever Change Image

Fresh from sending 30,000 additional American soldiers to the land where empires go to die, President Obama accepted the Nobel Peace prize by justifying war and stating in a way that made emotionally vacant chicken hawks blush, “some will kill, and some will be killed.”

Evocative of his predecessor George W. Bush’s Orwellian musing, “when we talk about war, we’re really talking about peace,” Obama laid out the circumstances in which war is justified – in self-defense, to come to the aid of an invaded nation, or on humanitarian grounds, but conveniently omitted the real reason which historically most soldiers are sent into battle – to protect the profits of the rich and their multi-national corporations.

Almost a year into the first term of the man who promised “Change We Can Believe In,” the lack of will or inclination to deliver on this promise is forcing liberals to suspect that instead of the following in the footsteps of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a President who championed the working person and pulled America out of the first Republican Great Depression, we are getting a pseudo-extension of Bush’s third term.

With many pointing to the similarities between the current economic collapse and the first Republican Great Depression, President Obama is turning out to be more like Herbert Hoover than a bold progressive willing to do what is necessary to re-regulate the banksters and institutions whose greed continues to exploit average Americans and is responsible for the current economic collapse.

In the aftermath of the first Republican Great Depression of the 1930’s, the FDR put Americans back to work through the Work Projects Administration; WPA in the fourth month of his Presidency. Conversely, the Obama administration has yet to implement a “main street” focused bailout and surrounds himself with advisors (such as Larry Summers and Timothy Geithnerso) bent on rebuilding the casino economy – ideologues of the disastrous Republican unregulated free market, job-killing free trade, trickle down tax polices, Socialism for the rich and scraps that fall off their tables (with a heavy side order of shame) for everyone else.

President Obama could follow in the footsteps of FDR by creating a Green WPA, installing solar or wind energy generators, that would put people to work TODAY as well as put us on the path to energy independence. The economy would start moving in a way that works – from the bottom up. Europe tackled the recession with a bottom-up recovery approach and their economies are currently on the upswing. Their guaranteed health care and strong social safety net doesn’t hurt either. Meanwhile, the United States is bracing for the second part of a double-dip recession while our jobs continue to be shipped to China along with our manufacturing base.

In spite of fact that the People spoke decisively in the mid-term elections by electing a large Democratic majority as well as the Presidential election mandate, even the desperately needed health insurance reform bill was approached by Democrats right off the bat from a position of “compromise” which was a capitulation to the well-heeled masters of the politicians who take millions in lobbying dollars to advance corporate interests over the interest of average Americans and is turning out to be nothing but a big wet-kiss to the very insurance middle-men who have killed 45,000 and bankrupted millions of Americans in this “pay or die,” for-profit health insurance racket each year while simultaneously paying themselves billion-dollar bonuses.

President Obama’s lack of leadership and willingness to back the one initiative 70% of Americans want that is necessary for true reform –the Public Option – has left many liberals disenchanted and disgruntled.

An the causes for concern continue to grow. During the 8 years of the Bush Presidency, Americans who were paying attention were alarmed and appalled to see the dreams of our founders disappear behind the cloak in which all criminal regimes wrap themselves while wresting totalitarian power from the populace – in the name of “national security.”

Although democracy seemed to be on life support, all was not lost! As America teetered on the edge of the abyss, in walked “The Audacity of Hope. ” We bought the marketing campaign. We believed the election of Barack Obama was our revolution and were relieved that our system could be resuscitated long enough for it to restore the Constitution and call to account the criminals who lied us into two wars, collapsed the economy, wiretapped us without court oversight, detained us indefinitely without charge or trial, violated international treaties and robbed us of our moral standing in the world.

Now, almost a year after the inauguration of “hope,” liberals see what our more cynical friends told us from the start- that the new boss is same as the old boss. For example, for reasons unknown, President Obama has still neglected to ask for the resignation of the Bush-appointed federal attorneys who are Republican dead-enders and Con true believers and are still prosecuting American political prisoners like Governor Don Seigalman in spite of outrageous trumped-up charges and conflicts of interest.

Initially we dismissed the transgressions with musings of, “perhaps President Obama is employing political jujitsu” or “rope-a-dope?” And “maybe he’s playing chess rather than checkers?” Now, I’m not so sure. He’s looking more and more like “more of the same.”

I am someone who was an early supporter of the Barack Obama and contributed to his campaign numerous times even before he was the Democratic nominee. His Nobel Prize acceptance speech didn’t leave me misty eyed or motivated, it frankly just pissed me off. How arrogant to accept a PEACE PRIZE while escalating a war! At least Le Duc Tho had the dignity and honor to decline the peace prize, bestowed jointly with Henry Kissinger for his negotiations to end the Vietnam War, stating that he couldn’t accept it as there was still no peace in his country. Of course, the war criminal Kissinger accepted.

But President Obama’s speech fell on my ears like a rake on a chalkboard. Empty words with no action to back them up.

Bill Maher nailed it months ago after Obama’s health care speech.
“I’m supposed to be all re-injected with yes-we-can fever after the big health care speech, and it was a great speech — when Black Elvis gets jiggy with his teleprompter, there is none better. But here’s the thing: Muhammad Ali also had a way with words, but it helped enormously that he could also punch guys in the face.”

During his Nobel Prize speech, President Obama seemed simply like a well-spoken politician weaving that old, familiar, mythology for the huddled masses of the leaders reluctant to send people to war, yet forced by circumstance. The pawns are the ones who bear the brunt of this myth – too overworked and economically insecure to object to the fact that the rich ride their backs like parasitic leeches sucking profits from hosts until the hosts are dead.

With the economy tanking, American workers forced to compete with Chinese slaves for jobs, the economic gap between the rich and poor wider than at the time of the first Republican Great Depression and ever widening, there’s plenty of pawns desperate enough to be shot at for a shilling.

Far from the dreams of our founders, this scenario is their worst nightmare. Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1813 to future president James Monroe about the need for a militia rather that a standing army, “our men are so happy at home that they will not hire themselves to be shot at for a shilling a day. Hence we can have no standing armies for defense, because we have no paupers to furnish the materials.”

How ironic to think that American politicians whine over health care but never lack the funds for war. They wave the flag of patriotism and national security like a prop in a show that pretends the sons and daughters of the poor are killing and being killed in the name of mom, apple pie and freedom. How sad to think that this vision for the future was far from the dreams and hopes that our founders had for future the citizens of America.

I still have some semblance of hope, though. Is President Obama the just the new face of the class war? I hope not.


One Response to “Obama Channels Bush Channeling Orwell”

  • jacksmith says:

    THE FILIBUSTER MUST GO! It’s undemocratic. It was created to subvert democracy and the will of the people. The Constitution Of The United States only calls for a simple majority vote in the Senate (51 votes). The Senate should pass the strongest Public Option it can with 51 votes.

    CRITICAL!! From jacksmith – Working Class

    My Fellow Americans and People Of The World

    A strong Government-run MEDICARE like Public Option is CRITICAL!!

    A Medicare Buy-in at 55 is a GOOD! idea. But!, not a substitute for a strong Medicare like public option CHOICE for everyone. Nor is the (FEHBP). Without a strong public option on day one the Senate health-care bill is a disaster for the American People and the World. Therefore you must KILL!! it. Without a strong public option the health-care reform bill is MUCH WORSE! than what we have now, and what we have now is a catastrophe. SO YOU MUST KILL!! IT.

    What is proposed in the Senate is the worst case scenario for health-care reform. It would shift trillions of taxpayer, public and private dollars into the hands of the private insurance industry (The single most costly, deadly and dangerous product sold in America). And it would compel by law millions of Americans to financially support this oxymoronic criminal enterprise. You cant have a MANDATE WITHOUT A STRONG PUBLIC OPTION CHOICE!

    You will have NO! realistic way of controlling cost and quality. Cost will continue soaring through the roof bleeding the American people dry, and KILLing our economy. And our quality of healthcare will continue to decline below our current ranking of “WORST! quality of healthcare delivery in the developed World”.

    H1N1 IS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION!

    I have to tell you now that the H1N1 virus is a man-made WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION! and TERROR! It is a WEAPONIZED version of a flu virus. It has swept the planet infecting millions. And causing a global pandemic that has killed tens of thousands, and injured millions.

    The H1N1 virus is the product of the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! It was released in the U.S. in Texas in early January of this year, but not recognized until around April in California. The reason I know this is because when it came to America, it came to see me FIRST! How sweet…

    This was around the time the MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! assaulted the Whitehouse with all their devils deals to cripple and weaken YOUR! healthcare reform. Especially your right to have a single payer system like HR676 (Medicare For All) which most of you wanted.

    They don’t even want you to have your HUGE!!! compromise position of a strong government-run MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. To compete with their DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, MURDEROUS, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT PRODUCT (The single most costly, deadly and dangerous product sold in America).

    They also wanted to take away your rights to have your government meet it’s responsibility to use it’s full power to regulate, negotiate, and control drug cost, healthcare cost and quality. Something every other civilized country in the developed World has done for it’s people. Their Greed! moral degeneracy and lack of patriotism knows no bounds.

    Many of you will remember that before we knew about H1N1. I posted a open message to the President and Congress warning them to be vigilant about their health, and cautious about any medical advice they received. As I said then “they will not hesitate to try and hurt you”.

    The U.S. and the World have been under a BIOLOGICAL TERROR ATTACK! for over a year now. It is CRITICAL that We The People Of The United States take away control of our healthcare system from the GREED DRIVEN MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!

    For our own National security, and the security of the world.

    A Strong, government-run, MEDICARE like Public Option CHOICE. Available to everyone on day one, with the full unfettered power of the federal government to regulate, negotiate, and control cost and quality. Would be the most workable way to deal with this global crisis at this time. Including patent suspensions as needed for national security or the greater good.

    As an American I invite the peoples of the World to help us fix our healthcare crisis. And bring pressure on our government to meet it’s responsibility to protect global security by controlling, and removing the corrupting influence of GREED and the PRIVATE FOR PROFIT motivations from healthcare in the U.S. and around the World.

    I call on the governments of the World and the global intelligence community to track down these MASS MURDERERS, and bring them to justice. CONNECT THE DOTS! And be vigilant that they don’t slip in another viral strain on you under the cloak of H1N1 sequestration.

    Further, the proposed patent protection on biologic’s must be stripped from the US bill. And greatly shorten/restricted, or abolished completely. This is a grave danger to humanity and global security.

    I think President Obama is doing the best he can at playing the disastrous deck of cards he inherited from the previous administration. And I think he is doing an excellent job. But the wolves and devils of the medical industrial complex! are trying to exploit, and take advantage of his good heart, and desperate desire to help suffering Americans. But we must be strong and insist that healthcare reform be done right for the American people. Or everyone loose’s.

    This is all I can say in a message post. I’ll try to find a way to tell you more later.

    God Bless You My Fellow Human Beings

    jacksmith – Working Class

    p.s. The so-called nominal H1N1 virus is designed in such a way as to make it more lethal to children and young adults. The medical community must be more vigilant of secondary bacterial infections in the young caused by H1N1. And remember, a viral infection is also a transfer of genetic code to you. Think about it, and be vigilant. :-(
