The reigning corporate plutocracy's game plan could be succinctly summarized by paraphrasing a famous song of yesteryear.

"Praise the Lord, pass the ammunition and give me my tax cuts!" is reflective of what passes for current day philosophy of the New World Order, neoconservative right inhabited by the likes of George W. Bush, Tea Partiers, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and Karl Rove.

How much better it would be for America as well as the rest of the world if the angry Boehner refrain regarding Obama's health care legislation of "Hell no, you can't!" and the angry frustration embodied in it represented an accurate assessment of where things really stand in current day America.

In the overall scheme of events the Obama campaign refrain that Boehner was mocking is far more indicative of how the New World Order neocons are faring than any kind of accurate prediction of where Obama's forthcoming administration would take America.

In the interest of "compromise" Obama appears ready to reinstate irresponsible Bush tax cuts for the top two percent of Americans under a threat of blackmail by the McConnell-Boehner led neocon team. Republicans have threatened another government shutdown of the kind evoked by Newt Gingrich and his right wing Republican allies during the Clinton Administration.

Nobel economics laureate Paul Krugman in the New York Times December 5 concluded that an extension of the Bush tax cuts would result in over $4 trillion in lost revenue over the next decade and over the next 75 years such a loss would be incurred of better than three times the entire projected Social Security shortfall.

An FDR, Truman, or JFK would call the bluff of the Republican bullies and take his case directly to the American people. Recent national polls have consistently revealed that Americans oppose the irresponsible measure that would reek future havoc and push the nation ever closer to bankruptcy status.

The neocons can be counted upon to use a three-pronged strategy to push the New World Order initiatives. The first of "praise the Lord" involves keeping the Religious Right zealots happy. This has been done by the likes of demagoguing the Terry Schiavo Case along with the Don't Ask, Don't Tell military policy regarding gays serving in the military.

In the first instance the brothers Bush, George W. and Jeb, sought to prevent a loving and dedicated Florida husband from carrying out his wife's wish not to have her life prolonged when medical authority deemed recovery impossible.

The nation's leading medical authorities unanimously concluded that the case was hopeless while George and Jeb demagogued the case, positing it as an important case in the annals of the right to life movement. Somehow the importance of medical care for those working Americans who cannot afford it, and who are dying in an estimated number of 18,000 per year, have been overlooked by the right to life Republican zealots.

As for the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, the members of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff unanimously concur that it can be eliminated without resulting problems just as gays have been openly serving in the armed forces of European countries for years without incident. All the same, the Old Testament Bible pounders continue to envision all gays as doomed and hence the military will be corrupted should they be allowed to openly serve.

The second level of the Republican right's constellation is a military engaged in foreign conflict, thereby enriching both defense contractors such as Halliburton, Bechtel, and Monsanto along with promoting the New World Order by placing greater numbers of countries along with their resources and people under their dominion.

The Fox News Republican Party adjunct adroitly and zealously beats the bandwagon, explaining to its zombie-like followers, most of whom proudly proclaim to get all their "news" from that single source, the necessity of fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan while bemoaning the fact that America pulled out of Vietnam.

The third tier is the point on which the article commenced. It is deemed vital to neocons to see that the nation's wealth is firmly entrenched in the hands of the corporate plutocracy. This top heavy dominion is mightily assisted through federal tax policy. Once again the gullibility of the brainwashed is secured through propaganda such as that being invoked by McConnell, Boehner and their Republican House and Senate allies.

The effort is to make it look as if those opposing their efforts are operating against the best interests of the American people. This is done through propaganda stunts such as McConnell invoked when he declared that you do not raise taxes during a tough economic period, hoping that citizens would not think his statement through and conclude that it was only a ploy to enable the economic elite to continue to secure its advantage.
