If there was a Nobel Prize for Hypocrisy, Betrayal and Deceit, then the number one most obvious candidate would be Barack Obama. He was swept into office by a people tired of George W Bush´s war-mongering and increasingly tyrannical rule built on the staged false-flag World Trade Center demolition, and enthused by Obama´s charismatic and vigorous promises of a “change to believe in”. I was myself as happy and hopeful as most peace-loving people when he was elected, even if I already had certain misgivings stemming from my insights into the workings of politics in general, and American politics in particular.
The people´s fervor over Obama´s election should logically have turned into a white rage over his betrayal, as he not only failed to comply with his many promises, but has been doing the exact opposite of what he expressly promised to do during his election campaign. He has in fact put Bush´s hated policies on steroids and is presently presiding over a police state with a tyrannical, lawless and unconstitutional government, that is riding roughshod over the constitution, and over every law and international treaty in the book. Obama signed into “law” – completely unconstitutional of course – a right for himself to detain, torture, put away indefinitely, and even kill anyone, American or not, on a simple suspicion, with no formal accusation, no due process and no proof of any kind. Do you call that democratic? Or civilized? Or even human? It certainly has no semblance of justice, or even law. Actually, I call that terrorism. And he still talks in his rhetoric about America being a beacon of freedom and justice and democracy! If that is not hypocrisy to the nth criminal degree, I don´t know what could be.
And what about the drones he loves so? Unmanned monsters, costing billions of dollars, operated with “joysticks” from afar by computer game fans, and arbitrarily killing thousands of innocent civilians in distant countries, including a high percentage of children, just because someone thinks that there could be a “terrorist” somewhere in that crowd… I cannot think of any better word for that kind of activity than frivolous mass murder, if not genocide. It definitely takes psychopaths to think up and execute such activities.
Think I am exaggerating, or even lying, because you do not see any of this in mainstream media? – Mainstream media will not bring it up, since they are part of the system and controlled by the same forces who control Congress and Government with money, with bribes and threats. But all this information is documented by official sources, like Congressional reports etc, and can be accessed via the Internet by anyone who takes the trouble to do the research.
The Obama administration is now intent on monopolizing information, and its escalating war on free expression and a free press has been linked to a number of highly suspicious all too timely deaths of investigating journalists, a sure hallmark of a ruthless dictatorship mentality if ever there was one.
Just weeks ago, the respected young journalist at Rolling Stones magazine Michael Hastings criticized the government in a TV interview for constraining the press and suppressing information, asking other journalists to join him in a war against the government to defend free speech. Shortly afterwards he told a friend in a telephone conversation (as we now know listened in to by the government) that he was preparing his greatest scope ever, on the CIA.
Then he told another friend that he was nervous about being investigated and followed by the FBI, and that he had decided to go “under the radar” and disappear for a while. Only hours later, he was killed as his new Mercedes blew up not far from where he lived, right in the United States of America. The police was told not to give any information to the press or public about the investigation of what they termed an “accident” due to speeding. Yet, all circumstances and witness reports converge to the only possible conclusion that it was a planted car bomb that took his life. And this is by no means the only journalist killed just before he was about to publish something that was seen as dangerous or uncomfortable for Obama or his administration.
But it doesn´t stop there. It came out just the other day that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had prepared so called death squads to kill the leadership of the Occupy Movement by snipers, should they become too bothersome. Do you think the government in a democracy based on principles of law and freedom of expression, should hire professional killers to assassinate the leaders of a peaceful protest?
Since long before Obama, and regardless of whether the Republicans or the Democrats were in power, there have been numerous cases of honest whistleblowers revealing corrupt and abusive practices by the government, or its agencies such as the FBI, the CIA, and the FDA (Food & Drug Administration, in bed with Monsanto). Until now, most whistleblowers were sacked, arrested and hassled in every possible way, but at least they have not been killed, nor put away for good. One example is Sibel Edmonds, who has written an excellent and very revealing book, titled Classified Woman, about her tribulations and futile fight for justice since she was recruited as a translator by the FBI in 2001. But things have got much worse under Obama.
Sibel Edmonds is now heading a whistleblower organization and publishing a website at www.BoilingFrogsPost.com – On Friday 26th July Boiling Frogs Post published an article by political veteran insider Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, titled The Two Faux Democracies Threaten Life on Earth – Nuclear War is on Washington´s Agenda.
Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury under Reagan and has also been associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has testified before congressional committees on 30 occasions on issues of economic policy, and has been a critic of both Democratic and Republican administrations.
In his article Dr. Roberts commented on another article recently published in the Yale Journal of International Affairs by Amitai Etzioni, Professor of International Affairs at the George Washington University. The title of Prof. Etzioni´s article is Who Authorized Preparations for War with China?
Etzioni reports that the Pentagon is preparing for a pre-emptive nuclear war against China that was not ordered by, and has not been reviewed by, US civilian authorities. Paul Craig Roberts comments, “We are confronted with a neoconized US military out of control endangering Americans and the rest of the world.”

“Because the American press is a corrupt government propaganda ministry, the American people have no idea that neoconized Washington is planning nuclear war. Americans are no more aware of this than they are of former Democrat President Jimmy Carter’s recent statement, reported only in Germany, that the United States no longer has a functioning democracy.
The possibility that the United States would initiate nuclear war was given reality eleven years ago when President George W. Bush, at the urging of Dick Cheney and the neocons that dominated his regime, signed off on the 2002 Nuclear Posture Review.
This neocon document, signed off on by America’s most moronic president, resulted in consternation and condemnation from the rest of the world and launched a new arms race. Russian President Putin immediately announced that Russia would spend all necessary sums to maintain Russia’s retaliatory nuclear capability. The Chinese displayed their prowess by knocking a satellite out of space with a missile.” – – –
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts concludes his article with the following broadside: “For the past 68 years, most military aggression can be sourced to the US and Israel. Yet, these two originators of wars pretend to be the victims of aggression. It is Israel that has a nuclear arsenal that is illegal, unacknowledged, and unaccountable. It is Washington that has drafted a war plan based on nuclear first strike. The rest of the world is correct to view these two rogue unaccountable governments as direct threats to life on earth.” –
So what are you going to do about it? Just sit and wait for nuclear war to rend this world apart and make it uninhabitable for humankind and most other forms of life? And watch our air, water and food being poisoned, converging with multiple other agendas to reduce the world population and shorten the lifespan of those who survive.
I will be back soon with more indigestible facts, but hopefully also with a few digestible suggestions.
Till then, at least spread the word!
