The Death of My Country; Barrack Obama and the Black Swan Politic


First what is a Black Swan?

"Black swans are supposed to be inherently unpredictable. They're the "unknown unknowns" of the investment world--extremely rare events that most consider impossible if not inconceivable. We all worry about tax reform, and then, boom, a few planes hit major American landmarks. (Which happened.) We all worry about Iran getting nuclear weapons, and then, boom, a nuclear power plant goes Chernobyl in Pennsylvania. (Seems improbable, but that's the point)." [1]

The Black Swan event I am writing about isn't limited to economics although the world now wonders openly how every miserable event globally bumps and shores up our currency. Recently since the Wall Street collapse every catastrophe globally spikes our currency and is what is shoring it up, easing it downward.

The Black Swan I am writing about is our complete institutionalizing of the War on Terror to the point we are now handing over countries to groups in league with Al Qaida.

In my previous article "Days of Rage; Its not the Muslims Stupid" [2] , written ahead of Rep Peter Kings Hearings on Muslim radicalization I gave a baseline and litmus test to show Al Qaida cooperative elements within the framework of our government.

The baseline proof is simply the nature of the governments installed after "a day of rage." As predicted in the article every one of them supported by the US has had its leadership co-opted and is tied directly to the Qutbist Al Qaida.

In Egypt the emerging Muslim Brotherhood recently released (# two Al Qaida man) Simon al Zawaheri's brother from prison.

In Libya the Black Swan is openly evident. Within the framework of the War on Terror, the Presidency has been dragged into a war to support and turn over another country to our supposed enemy Al Qaida.

According to the Guardian an Al Qaida spokesman on Libya "We only came out to defend you against these despots who usurped your rights, plundered your wealth, and prevented you from having the minimum requirements of a dignified life and of freedom and human dignity." [3]

According to Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense; The Pentagon chief had cautioned early on about getting involved in Libya's civil war, telling Congress that taking out Libya's air defenses was tantamount to war. [4]

Secretary Gates also expressed concern about the rebel factions ties to Al Qaida.

Ghaddafi has expressed this a few dozen times now. Although no prize himself, and I am not a supporter of his, was this the only way forward? Recently he released from prison the brother of Osama bin Ladens spokesman who is a rebel leader. Sufian bin Qumu, a rebel leader in Darna, north-east of Benghazi, was once Osama bin Laden's chauffeur. [5]

The articles and sourcing just go on and on. The ultimate political Black Swan is the setting up of Qutbist nations for the perpetual War on Terror and the profit to be made from it.

The President while on vacation has declared a war he should not have been able to. Will a clear enough majority in Congress censure him and maintain a separation of powers? I don't think so. While some of the braver elements of his own party are standing up given the gravity of the situation, most will instead seek how it can profit them personally which is par for the course.
