"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
When you are right, you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves."
- Harriet Tubman
There is absolutely nothing more that Hobama/”President” Barack Obama can possibly do to prove that he is a rabid elitist. There is nothing else that politicos can do to expose the fact that America is ruled by one party with two names and one elitist agenda. There is nothing further that Hobama can do to flagrantly betray the black fans that still, somehow, shockingly and suicidally worship him. There is nothing more indefensible than Hobama’s collective elitist antics that poor, jobless, and homeless drones still amazingly dare to defend. Yet, Hobama is still being praised for expertly reading mere words to his masses of paupers.
Truth is far stranger and crueler than fiction. Truthfully, a blackish president has become the most racist and ruthless president in American history. His wars are bloodier and more endless than those of his cousin King Shrub/George W. Bush. His grift given to the corporatist rich has been more opulent and obscene than ever before. Hobama and his beloved and criminally coddled banksters have literally robbed and bankrupted America and its progeny for decades to come. Yet, his superior reading skills remain the singular focus of his bafflingly blinded global fan club.
The audacity of omission and lies trumps the audacity of hope. The audacity of deception and deceit trumps the audacity of change. Hobama’s vapid teleprompter show has become a heinous charade. The soul of our nation has been lost to a presidential reality show. The political rebels have been lobotomized and neutralized by Hobama’s scripted evasions and eloquent deceit. However, his expert speech reading will never soften his surgical destruction of poor people in America.
Hobama is poised to destroy poor people in America as never before. America is rapidly headed towards a new serfdom that will include literally no middle class. Joblessness and homelessness have already become normal for millions. Public schools have become relics. Yet, Hobama’s expertly mouthed words are designer opiates for the doomed and adoring masses. “Food insecurity” is the new hunger. “Hope and change” have become hopeless and unchanged. Without mercy or interruption, Hobama’s speech writers and teleprompters toil on.
What did Hobama say to you in his most recent opiate oratory? Did he say what would be done for poor children felled by the perpetual and fatal bullets of abject poverty? Did he say how more than 8 million jobs that have been permanently lost would ever truly be replaced? Did he speak with any iota of real empathy for anyone who is not a bankster or a corporate CEO? Did he mention freezing any funds for the rich that he has so generously drowned in trillions of dollars stolen from public coffers? As he praised ecological ideals, did he mention even one actual dead bird, fish, crab, cricket, or cow that has suddenly died in our increasingly toxic environment where varied carcasses fall like rain?
Hobama is a repulsively amoral hoax. All who see him with their third eye know this. All who hear what he is truly saying know this also. Hobama is the corporate owned puppet of the most corrupt political regime in America to date. It is amoral to speak of public education while saying nothing about the corporate scams of charter schools and the horrid revamping of the academic genocide of NCLB. They do not pretend to revere and recruit educators as they layoff millions of great teachers to slash salaries for novices who replace them. It is amoral to speak of taxpayers’ burdens while failing to mention their bilking by banksters, who fashioned their homeless and jobless miseries. It is amoral to praise China and make no mention of its slave labor.
Moral men do not pretend that construction jobs for novices will resolve the permanent loss of millions of jobs, while thousands of veteran construction workers are laid off and unemployed. They do not praise the Internet as they brazenly engage electronic apartheid and elitist Internet restrictions nationwide. They know that computers require electricity and that electric bills require jobs, homes, and incomes. They know that fictional green jobs will do nothing to garner real green cash within immediate salaries. They know that college is impossible when tuitions are soaring, millions of unemployed college graduates are crippled by academic debts, and bailed out bankers refuse to grant college loans.
Moral men do not pretend that other countries have any monopoly on media censorship. They do not completely ignore the devastation of BP Oil’s toxic tragedy in the Gulf. They never accept campaign funds from amoral oil companies while pretending to sincerely bash the oil industry. Moral family members do not chose one segment of their kin to systematically starve. Moral family members do not slay kin who are fishermen, teachers, and farmers, as they exclusively save and embrace kin who are banksters and CEOs.
Moral men do not speak of innovation as they ignore innovative genocide. Moral men do not praise living soldiers as they ignore countless corpses, or droves of walking soldiers with dead spirits and broken souls. Moral men do not herald a fictional recovery as they ruthlessly ignore a very real depression for millions, who are swiftly becoming poorer each day. Moral men do not pretend that America is not racing towards a new serfdom for the masses, as they simultaneously rush to garner corporate tax breaks for billionaires.
Moral men do not wage wars as they accept peace prizes. They do not disgrace heroic men like Dr. Martin Luther King by becoming abusers of the progeny of poor blacks whom King was executed for assisting economically. Moral men do not praise dubious and nominal income tax breaks as millions have no incomes at all. They do not spin idle fantasies about struggling business owners as they ignore the salacious financial circus of coddled banksters. Moral men do not feign interests in campaign fund reform as they spend billions in donations for their own political campaigns. They do not praise dejected and weary gay soldiers, as they ignore nonexistent benefits for grieving and abused gay war widows, and utter absolutely nothing about the absence of combat for the children of rich warmongers.
Moral men do not speak of alleged terrorists in Afghanistan, as they ignore the fascists terrors waged for oil and opium inside Afghanistan. Moral men do not lie about the end of war in Iraq and then brazenly speak about how that war rages on. They do not pretend that waging immoral global wars can ever truly set any modicum of a moral example for any country or any people. Moral men do not brag about banning lobbyists and earmarks just before they break records for collecting and creating both. They do not lie about televised transparency, and then pretend it is synonymous with online propaganda. They do not dare attack a glut of government agencies as they bombard Americans with droves of government czars and federal spies.
Moral men do not harp upon level playing fields for corporate moguls who slay poor people in global killing fields. They do not praise trade with Korea as they trade senseless military genocide with Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran. They do not pretend that predator drones ever decrease random bloodshed and temper rabid hatreds.
Moral men never pretend that giving trillions to corrupt banksters will ever trickle down to the poor people they rob. They do not pretend that corporatist banksters and their usurious credit cards will ever truly benefit a sole poor credit cardholder. They do not pretend that predatory mortgages will ever make a poor person’s house a peaceful home rather than a perpetual sink hole. They do not pretend that Medicare and Medicaid will be inferior to or less costly than the mammoth chaos of Hobamacare, as they mark both programs for destruction by “deficit reduction”.
It is savagely inhumane to incessantly and suicidally play along with the fatal fantasy of Hobama. In reality, Hobama has been a socialist exclusively for the rich. He has never proven his eligibility as a natural born citizen. He has never addressed the missing years of his clandestine life or the sealed documents of his alleged academic records. He has only brutalized poor people. He has done nothing for the poor black “mongrels" who insanely adore him. And, Hobama will never do any better for poor people.
As always, the rebel warriors at The Black Agenda Report penned the most powerful and poetic analysis of Hobama’s surreal speech. Revolutionary hero and clairvoyant sage Glen Ford stated:
“What a strange and deeply sad relationship exists between many Black Americans and the brown-skinned corporate politician in the White House. After two years, there is no longer any expectation of reciprocity, only a muted hope and prayer that Obama would behave decently.
In announcing a five-year freeze on domestic spending, Obama enters a new phase of aggressive – rather than furtive – collaboration with the GOP. To ensure that catastrophe cannot be avoided for the tens of millions battered and set adrift by the two (lesser and greater) recessions of the 21st century, Obama will join with Republicans to prevent the domestic arms of government from coming to the people’s aid, by freezing finances. With whole communities in a state of economic dislocation, Obama burns the rescue boats and poisons the water, all the while promising that the necessary budgetary savings will not be achieved “on the backs of our most vulnerable citizens” – as if Wall Street’s bankers will shield the helpless with their well-bonused bodies.
By bringing down the corporate tax rate – a substantive promise from Obama that only the wealthy can truly appreciate – additional profits will accrue to companies that have already hoarded over two trillion dollars, but who were doubtless awaiting Obama’s coded signal, “Sputnik,” before investing in productive, job-producing enterprises. These investments might also be delayed until Obama has, as promised on Tuesday night, reorganized the federal government to the Republicans’ satisfaction, and purged offensive regulations from the public sphere.
Funny, how Obama seems so much more in his element in the wake of the November defeat than when Democrats controlled both Houses of Congress. Half of Obama’s Blue Dog friends have been replaced by Republicans, but the president seems even happier among the new guys, as if he’s finally within reach of the grand, “bi-partisan consensus” that is the ideal state of being in a post-everything America.“
Columnist Robert Scheer, one of the uniquely authentic journalists at Truthdig, also expertly reviewed Hobama’s eloquently scripted hogwash:
“What is the state of the union? You certainly couldn’t tell from that platitudinous hogwash that the president dished out Tuesday evening. I had expected Barack Obama to be his eloquent self, appealing to our better nature, but instead he was mealy-mouthed in avoiding the tough choices that a leader should delineate in a time of trouble. He embraced clean air and a faster Internet while ignoring the depth of our economic pain and the Wall Street scoundrels who were responsible—understandably so, since they so prominently populate the highest reaches of his administration. He had the effrontery to condemn “a parade of lobbyists” for rigging government after he appointed the top Washington representative of JPMorgan Chase to be his new chief of staff.
What nonsense to insist that low public school test scores hobbled our economy when it was the highest-achieving graduates of our elite colleges who designed and sold the financial gimmicks that created this crisis. Indeed, some of the folks who once designed the phony mathematical formulas underwriting subprime mortgage-based derivatives won Nobel prizes for their effort. A pioneer in the securitization of mortgage debt, as well as exporting jobs abroad, was one Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of GE, whom Obama recently appointed to head his new job creation panel.
Why now? It is an absurd demarcation to freeze spending when so many remain unemployed just because corporate profits, and therefore stock market valuations, seem firm. Ours is a union divided between those who agree with Obama that “the worst of the recession is over” and the far larger number in deep pain that this president is bent on ignoring.”
Hobama’s government is worse than any government in our past. We all chose to play Hobama’s game. Yet, only he and his beloved peer elites have won. Hobama’s regime has robbed us of the American dream, just as it has designed our collective American nightmare. No mere speech will awaken us from our fatal slumber.
Hobama will never do better!!! His worst is yet to come as he serenely and icily watches his trickle down tragedies explode in every state!!! And, we will all perish as we sleep, unless we finally wake up and save ourselves!!!
May God bless us all…
