Barack Obama: The More Insidious Evil
"Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves...(and) the grand thieves are running the country. That's our problem." --Howard Zinn
To be sure: Neither the corporate owned Democrat or the corporate owned Republican parties are viable choices for the struggling everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of this nation. In fact, these corporate owned parties are the antithesis to the needs and hopes of ordinary people in this nation, and throughout Mother Earth.
The American Heritage College Dictionary defines the word 'insidious,' in relevant part, as "Working or spreading harmfully - in a subtle or stealthy manner. Beguiling, but harmful; alluring." Indeed, Mr. 'hope and change' - predator drone - 'you'll never see it coming' - U.S. president Barack Obama is the very embodiment of the word 'insidious.'
Barack Obama's secret negotiations with economic bloodsucking multinational corporations, his trillion dollar criminal 'bailout' of the corporate elite of Wall Street, his signing into law of the draconian indefinite detention (NDAA) horror, his ongoing wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere, his bombing of Libya, North Africa, his feverish clamp down on corporate and government 'whistleblowers,' and his infamous 'Kill List' are but a few of the horrible actions that Obama, has and is, engaging in under the cover of insidious stealth and beguilement.
Obama's flagrant violations of U.S. Constitutional and international law have, in less than four years, far surpassed even the outrages committed by his predecessors. His constant tactic of baiting the everyday people with omissions, half truths, and outright lies has quite possibly been the most insidiously effective against ordinary people of any U.S. president - ever.
Due, in substantial measure, to the support of many 'liberals,' so-called 'progressives,' and much of the 'left,' who hypocritically refuse to hold Barack Obama to the same standards of accountability as they did his Republican party predecessors, he has been able to hoodwink and emaciate the struggling everyday people of this nation. The Obama regime, from its very beginning, was (and continues to be) one of deception, subterfuge, political repression, and non-transparency. This is precisely why it was so crucial for the systemic power-brokers (both Democrat and Republican) to have ensured that the 'Obama brand' was, in 2008, installed as the head of the U.S.corporate/military Empire. The terribe damage that Barack Obama has inflicted upon the people of this nation and world is incalculable.
Back during the corporate 'election' cycle of 2008, relatively few people in this nation were aware of, or willing to face, the fact that an 'Obama brand' presidency would mean 'More Of The Same - Only Worse.'
