Film Review: The Obama Deception

Alex Jones' new documentary, The Obama Deception, packs a powerful punch. Jones is known as a conservative / libertarian talk show host, activist, and filmmaker, running (and .net) and (and .tv) web sites. As one would expect from the title, Jones is critical of Barack Obama, the latest President of the United States.

U.S. politics has been called the "east coast version of show business," and less charitably, "show business for ugly people." Former Minnesota Governor (and ex-pro wrestler) Jesse Ventura has been heard to compare present-day politics to pro wrestling, and he finds no difference whatsoever. In each case, show business is performed for the cameras. In this movie, Ventura makes a cameo appearance to repeat that observation.

If we can swallow the red pill and accept that idea -- that politicians are all playing roles in show business, reading their scripts into teleprompters and hamming for the cameras -- then it becomes fair to wonder, who is the choreographer, or the director, or the script writer? Are there men off camera pulling the strings of Barack Obama? Is he a puppet in the hands of -- (my offhand guess follows:) -- Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, and David Rockefeller?

Brzezinski was National Security Advisor to former President Jimmy Carter. Kissinger was Secretary of State and National Security Advisor in the Nixon and Ford administration. Rockefeller founded the Trilateral Commission to influence U.S. foreign policy. Rockefeller is also a banker; the grandson of John D. Rockefeller, who founded Standard Oil; and proud to call himself a "globalist."

In this movie, Alex Jones confirms my offhand guess, fills us in on the background of the globalists, and spells out what he expects is the globalist agenda for Barack Obama to fulfill. If Jones' speculation is correct, then the "marching orders" for Barack Obama are truly ugly. Indeed, if Jones is right, then our entire planet should be put on red alert for what he sees coming.

Indeed, after he discusses some ugly truths and some evil intentions which he ascribes to the globalists, Jones actually implores all activists to man the battle stations. While he is happy to sell DVDs of this film from his web site, he also encourages the audience to burn and circulate more DVDs, even if that is from a free download which he also provides.

This is a time when Wall Street is a wounded institution, and so is the U.S. government (USG). Both have lost credibility, and their fevered spree of looting the nation continues at this time. Jones expresses that Wall Street and the USG have the same puppet master - puppet relationship as the globalists have to Barack Obama.

The film is done mashup-style, with quick cut editing. Multiple narratives and many issues are connected by Alex Jones' narration. Jones tells us the film's thesis explicitly. In his own words, "In this film we will prove that Obama says one thing and does another. And that he works for the very same elite interests that Bush served. The very interests engineering the financial collapse and formation of a dictatorial world government."

While this movie is ostensibly about Barack Obama, it ranges widely across a discussion of the global banking elite and four institutions in particular: the Federal Reserve, the Bilderberg group, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations. It is always disturbing when U.S. Presidents break their campaign promises; it is more disturbing to watch one behave as a puppet for Wall Street; but, the takeaway from this film, in the view of Alex Jones, is that "World dictatorship is coming!" (And hence, red alert / man the battle stations!)

His presentation is compelling. Actually, the film is a tour-de-force, and includes scenes that must be described as brilliant. In one memorable scene near the opening, Hip Hop artist and activist KRS-One explains:

"Barack is like the manager of Burger King. All presidents are, including Bush. It's like this -- when your fries are cold, if your burger's not done right, you go back to Burger King -- America, or your government -- and you say, 'My burger's cold! I want new fries!' First, you go to the cashier, that's the courts. You argue to the courts.

"The courts, if you can't get no justice with the cashier, you say 'Let me see the manager! I want to go to the Supreme Court! I want to see the President!' The manager comes out. 'Hi. What can I do for you?' Now, the manager can override the decisions of the cashier. But you never get to see the franchise owner of Burger King.

"If you really have a problem with your burger, you need to go see the franchise owner. We need to go to the top, or to the bottom. We need to go to where the real architecture of government is, and it's not in a President. It's in a global scheme."

That's followed by the mentioned cameo of Jesse Ventura, apparently with Willie Nelson sitting in the scene. Performer Joe Rogan makes the next poignant comment:

"It's pretty obvious that there's some gigantic financial institutions that have been pulling the strings of politicians in this country for a long time. Just the fact that we have it set up where they can donate millions of dollars to these guys' funds -- these guys' campaigns -- I mean, how do we not expect it all to go bad?"
