wolf and the fox are both enemies of humanity, both are
canine, both humiliate and mutilate their victims. Both

most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the
mind of the oppressed.”
a steady barrage of unceasing distractions and lies, the
waters of informed public discourse in this nation are being
deliberately poisoned and manipulated. Barack Obama, the
Democrat and Republican parties, and the corporate-stream
media engage in these tactics as a means of controlling
and manipulating the pain of everyday people.
example of this poisoning and distraction is the recent
public foray by Barack Obama, regarding the possible building
of a Muslim mosque near “ground zero” in New York City.
Obama claimed that he was merely manifesting his respect
for the U.S. Constitution by reminding the U.S. public of
the constitutional right to build said mosque. This of course
was nothing more than a cynical distraction on Obama’s part.
Where is Barack Obama’s constitutional respect as he callously
shreds the U.S. Constitution by supporting and extending
the unconstitutional police-state ‘Patriot Act’ and
the program of U.S. government kidnapping and torture
known as ‘Extraordinary
Rendition’?! No! Barack Obama, the Democratic Party
foxes, the Republican Party wolves, and the ever subservient
lap dog corporate-stream media utilized the mosque matter
in New York City, as a cynical distraction away from
the horrors of massive unemployment, home foreclosures,
a rapidly deteriorating U.S. infrastructure, a burgeoning
U.S. prison gulag population, corporate/Wall Street hegemony,
the de facto continued U.S. occupation of Iraq, and the
bloody U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Pakistan. So laugh Obama,
laugh! As you distract and pimp the pain of the people!
In the paraphrased words of the great Harold Melvinand the Blue Notes: “Wake Up Everybody!….
(Listen closelyto the words) Politicians
is the year 2010, in the 21st century, and once again it
is time to wake up and organize on behalf of ourselves:
just plain everyday Black, White, Brown, Red and Yellow
Barack Obama spends billions of dollars on overt wars abroad,
he and his ilk are also spending billions more dollars conducting
bloody, illegal, and secret wars of terrorism
allegedly against those who are themselves arbitrarily defined
as “terrorists,” all in the name of the ‘American’ people.
This of course serves to enhance the bloody cycle
of “terrorism,” not stop it. It also simultaneously
financially enriches the bulging and bottomless coffers
of the U.S. corporate / military elite at the expense
of jobs, housing, schools, libraries, education, and the
over-all infrastructure of this nation. (See New York Times,
is it that Barack Obama could so cleverly, callously and
cynically be leading this nation backwards
to economic and social ruin, while in a perpetual state
of wars abroad? The answer is not difficult. Consider that
there is strong reason to believe that Barack Obama himself
was fastidiously groomed by the Central Intelligence Agency
(CIA)/corporate complex in preparation for his role as
the head of the U.S. corporate / military Empire. Moreover,
his family, including his mother, father, step father, and
grand father all had very close ties with the CIA and were
most probably CIA operatives themselves. (Reference: The Story of Obama: All in The Company Part1
Obama did not rise from relative national obscurity
on his own to become President of the United States.
He was aided and abetted by the CIA/corporate complex
with the eager and able assistance of the corporate-stream
media. The CIA successfully subverted and manipulated
so-called democracy in this nation with the blindly euphoric
installment of Barack Obama as the first “black” president
of this country. This however, is by no means the first
time that the clandestine CIA, with its enormous and largely
hidden budget, has subverted democracy in this nation and
abroad, nor is it likely to be the last. [Remember how the
CIA, orchestrated and funded the overthrow of the
democratically elected governments of Iran in 1953,
and Chile in 1973. Notwithstanding a shredded U.S. Constitution,
it is ridiculous to assume that the ‘American’ people would
somehow be immune to CIA subterfuge inside the United States
U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, in addition to other so-called
“intelligence” agencies have also unscrupulously infiltrated
and subverted vast portions of the U.S. “news” media and
public institutions in this nation. Thus, it is absolutely
no coincidence that some who seek to expose Barack Obama
and/or U.S. government lies, often find themselves as the
targets of “dirty trick” activities of vicious discreditation,
or imprisoned, or mysteriously disappeared, or yes, even
murdered. The Obama / Dunham / Soetoro CIA connections
stretch from the United States, to Kenya, to Indonesia,
to Lebanon and beyond. No one should be surprised that the
articulate, double-talking Barack Obama has escalated
(for example) the U.S. wars Afghanistan and Pakistan, while
enacting repressive legislation such as the “Patriot
Act’ that in effect shreds the U. S. Constitution.
should come as no surprise that the infamous COINTELPRO
activities by the U.S. government have now been in essence
codified into law within the ‘Patriot Act’ itself.
The next time you hear Barack Obama speak or witness his
sickly smile---remember well---who and what he really
is and whose interests he actually serves. What you don’t
know can not only hurt you—it can kill you. WAKE UP EVERYBODY—Wake
Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in this nation
are in terrible pain and are hurting like never before.
Yet, Barack Obama, his congressional colleagues, and the
corporate-stream media dare to pontificate about a so-called
“economic recovery,” which is in fact nonexistent for
the masses of everyday people. The lying rhetoric and
smoke & mirror economics of Barack Obama, the Democratic
Party foxes, and the Republican Party wolves have served
the greedy corporate elite of Wall Street—not the
everyday people.(Reference: Deceptive
Economic Statistics: While the economists lied the US economy
greed must be addressed and stood up to everywhere.
Moreover, the corporate government and its hand maiden corporate-stream
media must be organized against just as the people did this
past August 10, 2010, in the ongoing struggle against
Whirlpool corporation’s greed and corruption in Benton Harbor
Michigan. These kinds of people’s struggles are increasingly
being organized throughout the United States. Everyday Black,
White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people must assert
their / our human rights to decent jobs, justice,
and a life with dignity.
agitate, and organize! In the words of Joe Hill, “Don’t
Mourn. Organize!!!” Link our issues and concerns
together! Even while Barack Obama and his ilk cynically
manipulate and laugh at the pain of the everyday people,
we must organize!
remains much work to be done. The time for slumber has long
passed. Onward my sisters and brothers! Onward!
