"Dream Team" for the Banksters and Imperialists!

I had CNN on yesterday listening to the financial show they have on every morning here in the PST. I don't know which of the "brilliant" analysts that was speaking, but she said two things that made me pick up my ears: Firstly, she said that Obama's economic team is a financial "Dream Team;" then she said: "I wonder if the Constitution can be amended so Obama can be sworn in earlier than January 20th?!"

As to the "Dream team" that Obama has chosen for his economic team, it is only a "Dream" if you are a Bankster salivating over ill-gotten and not earned or deserved gains or part of the Wall Street cabal. Citigroup was just given billions more in a "rescue" package that has little to zero accountability or protections for the average tax-paying American citizen.

Timothy Geithner, Obama's pick for Secretary of the Treasury, is currently the President of the New York Federal Reserve Bank (red flag) and has been working very closely with the Wall Street Banksters and Henry Paulson and Ben Bernanke in "solving" the current financial crisis! "Good job, Timmy!" It seems that incompetence and criminality will continue to be rewarded in a new Obama regime. Geithner's checkered past includes a stint with Kissinger and Associates…'nuff said? The Reserve banks only exist to enrich the establishment elite by creating easy money and "bubbles" where the rich can get richer as the bubble expands and be protected from risk when the bubble bursts. Timothy Geithner is about as much a Washington "outsider" as Dick Cheney is.

Larry Summers who will lead the White House's economic office is an Economic Hitman and is also directly responsible for the mess we are in today. Summers, SecTreas during the Clinton administration, was instrumental in repealing Glass-Steagall, which created the companies that were "too big to fail." If a company is "too big to fail," then obviously, it is "too big to exist." Summers also has the additional baggage of thinking that women are "naturally" less intelligent than men and that we should be dumping first-world pollutants on third-world nations. Another profound member of the Bankster party who first worked in Reagan's administration under a "supply-side" guru who was very pro-deregulation as his protege, Summers is.

With the news that Obama desires to retain Robert "The Surge" Gates, his foreign policy team, which includes Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden  (all Hawkish) is moving even farther towards the right and away from the anti-war base that pinned so many hopes on the President-Elect. With Reaganomics proponents and neo-Conservative empire supporters, nothing about Obama's appointments are engines for "change" but represent, not a 3rd "Clinton term" but an "8th Reagan" term.

Secondly, I ran against Nancy Pelosi because she refused to impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney. Then and now, Pelosi and CNN and other MSM outlets deemed my position for impeachment "extreme and divisive." Proposing an amendment to the Constitution is not extreme? How long would it take to change our Constitution to allow Obama to move into the White House sooner than 56 days? Well, Congress is on their Thanksgiving break and will soon be on their Christmas/Hanukah break, and then the New Year's break, so amending the Constitution is probably out of the question this year.

Many hours after I heard the dazzling solution of amending the Constitution to get rid of George Bush sooner, I turned the TV back on and Larry King was interviewing establishment hacks: Bob Woodward and David Gergen who were extolling Obama and his "Dream team," and I was saddened to recall how CNN, Fox and NBC collaborated with the Bush regime to not only jam these bailouts down our throats, but also to lead our country into wars that killed my son and hundreds of thousands of others. Millions of people are displaced, wounded or otherwise oppressed and we are still supposed to believe that CNN has anything true or relevant to say? When my TV becomes obsolete after the first of the year because it doesn't have the digital thingama-jiggy, I am not going to replace it or get the converter doo-hickey because there is very little worth watching in what has increasingly become an even vaster "wasteland." Why bother?

Obama will keep troops in Iraq as long as he is President and he will increase troops to Afghanistan in what the Democratic leadership is now calling the: Real War on Terror (which shall now be known as the "Democratic Real War on Terror" or D-RWoT).

Yes, Obama is putting together a Dream Team for the corrupt wealthy establishment class, but a Nightmare Cabal for the rest of humanity.
