Obama's New Chief of Staff and Economic Team - by Stephen Lendman
On January 7, New York Time writer Jackie Calmes headlined, "Obama Promises Full Recovery for Employment," saying:
Visiting a window-manufacturing plant "to promote his economic policies and his new team of advisers," he said:
"We will not rest until we have fully recovered from this recession."
Another promise, another to be broken by a scheme to create ruler-serf societies globally, especially in America and the West. Obama's citing a "foundation" for growth is political blather, his specialty like other key team players around him.
Yet Calmes called his new appointees "pragmatic liberals with experience in the policy-making bureaucracy - and negotiating with Republicans in Congress."
Like his Geithner/Summers/Emanuel-led team, they're, in fact, hard-line pro-Wall Street, pro-business, anti-regulation, anti-populist conservatives, appointed to shift further right, embracing core neocon/Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) tenets.
They're pro-business, pro-working class austerity, anti-populist, anti-civil/human rights, anti-rule of law, anti-government of, by and for people, anti-labor, anti-welfare, militaristic, repressive, and pro-imperial for unchallengeable global dominance.
