Hard Core Democrat Reich Recognizes Inequality Came From Bill Clinton, Obama

February 4, 2020

Robert Reich, a former US secretary of labor, is a hard core “Democrat”. He is professor of public policy at the University of California at Berkeley and the author of Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few and The Common Good. His next book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It, will be out in March. Obama deliberately turned away from Reich and his ideas about not too much inequality and being guided by greed. Instead, like Clinton before him, Obama gave power to Goldman Sachs potentates (Summers, etc.). The same who helped set-up Google and Facebook.

I generally agree with what he wrote, except where I made (hopefully) nasty comments 

Robert Reich hopefully disingenuously asks:

“Clinton and Obama chose not to wrest power back from the oligarchy. Why?

In the first two years of the Bill Clinton and Barack Obama administrations, Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. Yet both Clinton and Obama advocated free trade agreements without providing millions of blue-collar workers who consequently lost their jobs any means of getting new ones that paid at least as well. Clinton pushed for Nafta and for China joining the World Trade Organization, and Obama sought to restore the “confidence” of Wall Street instead of completely overhauling the banking system.”

Obama augmented inequality drastically by engineering a fat cats rescue, with taxpayer money. Even Trump was not that bad, that way (as more recent graphs show)…

PATRICE AYME: It’s better than that: Clinton demolished president Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Banking Act of 1933. Obama refused to re-established it. Thus Clinton and Obama were not revolutionaries, they were counter-revolutionaries. For Clinton and Obama, it is not just that plutocrat FDR was not plutocratic enough. For Clinton and Obama, FDR was a dangerous revolutionary, a Bernie Sanders erroneously elected.   

ROBERT REICH: “Both [Clinton and Obama] stood by as corporations hammered trade unions, the backbone of the white working class. They failed to reform labor laws to allow workers to form unions with a simple up-or-down majority vote, or even to impose meaningful penalties on companies that violated labor protections. Clinton deregulated Wall Street before the crash; Obama allowed the Street to water down attempts to re-regulate it after the crash. Obama protected Wall Street from the consequences of its gambling addiction through a giant taxpayer-funded bailout, but allowed millions of underwater homeowners to drown.”

PATRICE AYME: Obama named ambassadors people who had given enough money to his campaign. All “Democrats” saw this. 

ROBERT REICH: “Both Clinton and Obama turned their backs on campaign finance reform. In 2008, Obama was the first presidential nominee since Richard Nixon to reject public financing in his primary and general election campaigns, and he never followed up on his re-election promise to pursue a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United vs FEC, the 2010 supreme court opinion opening wider the floodgates to big money in politics.

Although Clinton and Obama faced increasingly hostile Republican congresses, they could have rallied the working class and built a coalition to grab back power from the emerging oligarchy. Yet they chose not to. Why?

PATRICE AYME: Good question. My answer is well known, and it’s the roughest, the one all are afraid to profer, in a case of collective hypnosis: personal corruption. If one compares different countries in the “West” one sees that in some countries (USA, Britain, Germany) some leaders became immensely wealthy after their “service”. Famously, Truman refused to make money from his ex-position of US president. And he explained that making money from it would demean the office of the presidency.  

Instead of expounding the obvious, namely squarely asserting that the plutocrats in control found willing empty suits to do as they were told, Reich opts for euphemisms:

ROBERT REICH: “There is no longer a left or right. There is no longer a moderate ‘center’

My answer is not just hypothetical, because I directly witnessed much of it: it was because Clinton, Obama and many congressional Democrats sought the votes of the “suburban swing voter” – so-called “soccer moms” in the 1990s and affluent politically independent professionals in the 2000s – who supposedly determine electoral outcomes, and turned their backs on the working class. They also drank from the same campaign funding trough as the Republicans – big corporations, Wall Street and the very wealthy.

A direct line connects the four-decade stagnation of wages with the bailout of Wall Street, the rise of the Tea Party (and, briefly, Occupy), and the successes of Sanders and Trump in 2016. As Eduardo Porter of the New York Times notes, since 2000 Republican presidential candidates have steadily gained strength in America’s poorer counties while Democrats have lost ground. In 2016, Trump won 58% of the vote in the counties with the poorest 10% of the population. His share was 31% in the richest.

By 2016, Americans understood full well that wealth and power had moved to the top. Big money had rigged our politics. This was the premise of Sanders’s 2016 campaign. It was also central to Trump’s appeal – “I’m so rich I can’t be bought off” – although once elected he delivered everything big money wanted.”

PATRICE AYME: Well, agreed with the rest, BUT the last point is disinformation. “Big money” wanted to keep having its tax avoiding, law avoiding, unemployment fostering and disempowerment promoting globalization. Globalization is how Roman plutocracy created the sort of “Republic” they liked, one they owned. (Nevermind it caused unending civil war, degeneracy and decrepitude.)  The Davos crowd wanted Davos to go on and on, until they own the world for sure. Then came Trump…

ROBERT REICH: The most powerful force in American politics today continues to be anti-establishment fury at a rigged system. There is no longer a left or right. There’s no longer a moderate “center”. There’s either Trump’s authoritarian populism or democratic – small “d” – populism.”

Democrats cannot defeat authoritarian populism without an agenda of radical democratic reform, an anti-establishment movement. Trump has harnessed the frustrations of at least 40% of America. Although he’s been a Trojan horse for big corporations and the rich, giving them all they’ve wanted in tax cuts and regulatory rollbacks, the working class continues to believe he’s on their side.

Democrats must stand squarely on the side of democracy against oligarchy. They must form a unified coalition of people of all races, genders, sexualities and classes, and band together to unrig the system.

Trump is not the cause of our divided nation. He is the symptom of a rigged system that was already dividing us. It’s not enough to defeat him. We must reform the system that got us here in the first place…”

Reich points out Democrats controlled Congress for 16 out of 24 years, prior to this. He lauds the “Affordable care Act” (Obamacare), which has been a disaster for nearly all, including the poorest (I was direct witness of this, because I know some of the poorest). Those who made like bandits were the healthcare industry, and their financiers. 

A friend of mine posted a lament about the failed impeachment of Trump, calling it a “day of infamy”, “never to be forgotten”. I pointed out that Biden and Pelosi were war criminals, that was really what “infamy” was. I put links to my supporting essays. He has a vast following, being owner of a Venture Capital firm in the Silicon Valley. He took out his Original Post, with plenty of Trump hating comments. Progress. However, this major “Dem” donor didn’t address the bottom line: Biden and Pelosi should be tried. The dereliction of the “Democratic” Party is not just Obama, Clinton, and their helpers and minders. Nor is it just Pelosi and Biden. Obviously Pelosi’s December 5, 2019, confession that she was a war criminal was a cry for help: she is a big time Catholic, she wants to make contrition before meeting God and Lucifer.

What needs to be examined most is the failure of analytical capability in so many US citizens claiming to be “good” while they fostered (be it only by supporting Pelosi and Biden) the war in Iraq, or inequality (by supporting Clinton and Obama). Right, I was a force helping Obama at a crucial juncture. But I recognize I was had. Although I knew, even then, that Obama was a quick buck artist. But I had not cynically anticipated how far he would go doing the opposite of what was convened.

So we need authenticity. In his anti-establishment rage, certified since he fought Reagan, Trump brought some deep down authenticity. So, of course, does Sanders, long what Trump calls a “Communist”…

Curiously, and let me jokingly feed a baby conspiracy theory here, the fact that the Iowa caucus results were delayed… doesn’t look like an accident, on the face of it. A firm tied to Hillary Clinton, herself tied to Biden (as Kerry and Bloomberg, both billionaires, are, at least in spirit) set up an app which conveniently crashed. Hence the fact Biden was severely rejected in Iowa is masked by this delay: Biden doesn’t seem to have finished among the top third, and is slugging it out with Senator Klobuchar…

What is clear is that Sanders’ greatest adversary is not Trump. Oh no. Trump is actually running a strident anti-drug companies advertising, explaining to “Americans” that they pay much higher prices than any others around the world for the same exact drugs. The exact sentence used by Trump was used by a progressive such as yours truly, for years. So yes, Trump is a so-called “populist”, so is Sanders, and the establishment hates them, because they will reduce how much money flows to the greedy elite….

So, yes, it looks like an accident favoring the established Elite. But conveniently the fact Biden lost is drowned by a talk about an app… How many accidents do we need, before we suspect a conspiracy?

What If Obama Were On Trial? Well, He Should Be! On Obama-Biden Firing Ukraine Prosecutor

January 26, 2020

I used as (first part of the) title, the title of an editorial of the New York Times January 26, 2020. Consider Trump’s impeachment from some other angles, says Nicholas Kristof, Opinion Columnist. I usually like Kristof, but here it’s open season on him after he refused to post my comment (or will publish it in 2 days, which comes down to the same). After some padding over 30 lines or so, Kristof grandly declares: 

In practical terms, this amounts to: What if it were Obama who had been caught in this Ukraine scandal?…. Progressives may be scoffing that this exercise is unrealistic: Obama was meticulous in avoiding scandal and ethical conflicts.

Thus Kristof makes clear that it is NOT something which happened… As a matter of course. This is high level disinformation on Kristof’s part: there is plenty of evidence to the contrary, but it is found in (some) foreign media (“Consortium News”), and it’s hidden from the US public. To keep it hidden from those reading NYT comments, my comment, a comment from a fanatical progressive, but also fair, balanced and clever, was censored.

To go on imprinting on such a grotesque lie, the grandiosity of Saint Obama, the New York Times in its plutocratic wisdom decided NOT to publish my comment. Indeed, Obama is little more than a stooge for plutocracy, including the literally dirtiest sort, the financial and fossil fuel/fracking plutocracy (fracking is Wall Street burning planet for profit). Obama is going to be rolled out if the old stooge Biden, or the new stooge Buttigieg, falter. The latter possible development would mean that Sanders (probably) or Warren (possibly) is going to be candidate. That’s when the biggest stooge of them all would be rolled out.

Most of the plutocrats don’t pay taxes. One could even view this as their definition: plutocrats have so much power that the laws are arranged to serve them. Consider subsidies on private jets, making 1% of US CO2… Of course the establishment is not just terrified of a Sanders presidency. It fears even more every day that Sanders keeps on advertising and explaining his “Democratic Socialism”. So it’s important, for the established plutocracy, that Obama damages Sanders… thus that Obama’s astounding aura remains intact. 

Well, maybe one didn’t look at what was impeachable in Obama’s actions. Obama apparently ordered personally drone strikes (instead of leaving the decisions to professionals themselves part of a hierarchy in oversight position). The president directly ordered the killing of US citizens without trial for Islamist propaganda (rather than murder). At least one of these US citizens was not adult, but 16 years old.

(Analogy to the decay of the Roman Republic: Cicero, self-proclaimed defender of the Republic, seemed to consider that extra-judicial execution were the way to go. He used them as Consul during the “Conspiracy of Catiline”. Much later, more stupidly, and dangerously, he tried to use such a denial of justice against Marcus Antonius…)

Second and more importantly, there is the interference in Ukraine. VP Joe Biden said loud and clear for all to hear, that he didn’t interfere in other countries policies. However, more recently he was on tape boasting of the exact opposite… in connection with the Burisma Holdings investigation.

Here is my terrible anti-plutocratic comment, which the New York Times depicts as lacking “civility”:

Vice President Joe Biden warned Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that, if he did not fire the very experienced Procuror General Viktor MykolayovychShokin, the Obama administration was prepared to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees. Biden: “I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’ They said:”Son of a bitch” He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid.” 

The Ukrainian Parliament refused initially to accept the resignation of the procuror general Viktor Mykolayovych Shokin. The “solid” man was Yuriy Lutsenko a Ukrainian MP who was forced to resign in 2010, and condemned to 4 years in jail for corruption. Lutsenko has no law degree. Considering the later point, a special law was passed. Biden claimed, on tape, that he was following Obama’s orders.

***

For skeptics, here is Biden on tape, bragging about firing the prosecutor who was inquiring about the embezzlement (at least 40 million dollars) of Hunter Biden’s company, Burisma Holdings:

***

It’s incredible to know that journalists and editorialists at the New York Times can look at themselves in a mirror, and not blush. What do they think they do as they foster plutocracy, using the basest method, that of the Big Lie? On the same Sunday edition (26 Jan 2020) where my comment was censored, there were interviews of whom the NYT views as the most important six Democratic candidates. Two were very wealthy multimillionaires, many times over. Two other were multibillionaires. The latter two, Bloomberg and Styer, have already spent, together eight times the total spending war chest of Trump. Yes they spent eight times, already, what Trump will spend in the future. Plus they get free advertising in the New York Times. Bernie Sanders in all this? He gets scathing editorial after scathing editorial, while Bloomberg gets lauded…

I got the electronic version of Kristof editorial, early on, Saturday. It had a long section explaining all the bad things Trump did NOT do. I sent my comment, it was censored. Then the NYT went on publishing more than 1,000 comments…. But also modifying Kristof’s editorial before it went to print by removing the section explaining all what Trump didn’t do (but has been accused of doing by the lying anti-Trumpists)

Sexist, Racist, Ageist Obama Doesn’t A Reality Make

December 21, 2019

Obama just said that white old men were the problem, worldwide. That’s sexist, ageist, and racist, Moreover, it is completely stupid. But no surprise from the fracking, droning, do nothing, but decrease US lifespan, US president…

Obama, revered by the pseudo-left addicted to hating Trump, because hatred feels so good, and because Obama gave them cheap oil, for their big SUVs and dispensious, energy wasting mansions… and Obama gave them a fig leaf, as he was brown, 24/7, and spoke splendidly, sounding like yours truly, of things he did the exact opposite of…

On the Internet, at best, sarcasm has replaced reality: who needs facts when you got the power of nasty under the guise of fake courtesy?

Rachel Laudenslager Hunt retorted sarcastically: “You’re right. The people who have been the predominant power brokers of the world for the last 2 centuries are the real problem. Now let’s see.. who were they….?”

Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour, may be best known as King Louis XV’s Chief Mistress. But she was also a highly educated tastemaker, a patron of the arts, and an artist in her own right. As Louis XV’s Prime Minister, she stood on its head all of French diplomacy, reverting alliances, launching the Seven Year World War, which lost North America for France, turned Prussia into a juggernaut, leading to Nazism, also brought the creation of the USA, and was a catastrophe for France and Europe… A splendid woman of influence, indeed, but not for the best.

Thanks for the comment. That gives me the occasion to make an important point tribal minds have recently decided to ignore. 

 

Women should have equal access to all. But that doesn’t mean there will be an automatic improvement of the character of the human race. Right, who should be the most famous politician, or ruler ever, was a woman. Amusingly few know her name, and for what she should be famous. So much for those who make noise without knowing.

Several women reached maximal authority in Rome: Agrippina, Galla Placidia, and Theodora. Galla Placidia, officially a ruling Augusta of Rome, was a very positive influence, in very troubled times. Agrippina the Younger ruled Rome for a few years, assassin extraordinaire and Augusta, after assassinating, or executing many, including probably Claudius, but was herself executed on the second attempt, on the order of her son. Theodora (500-548 CE) repressed the one serious attempt at a revolution against the Roman dictatorship, all by herself. 

Ironically enough, in the Eighteenth century, the two persons who exerted the most catastrophic influence on the leading superpower of the time were both women: Madame de Pompadour, and Marie Antoinette. Whereas indeed it’s Saint Queen Bathilde who outlawed slavery in 655 CE. Slavery was not outlawed thanks to sarcasm, which doesn’t a reality make. 

By pointing out that exterior appearances which have nothing to do with the life of ideas and correct emotions, such as age, gender and skin color are the dominant parameter, Obama is implicitly deflecting away blame from himself: after all, he has been brown 24/7 since birth, so he is white as the driven snow in the world of morality.

Obama couldn’t possibly have bombed out, on his personal order, entire weddings, killing up to 200 people in countries the USA was not even at war with: see, he is brown, 24/7. Obama, being brown 24/7 is an ecologist, and couldn’t possibly have organized the greatest fracking of shale rocks ever, making even the pale Trump paler than usual with enraged jealousy… Obama, brown 24/7 could not have engineered the greatest transfer of riches to the wealthiest, ever, making inequality in the USA, greater than ever.

Obama, being brown, thus pure, couldn’t have organized the greatest transfer of riches to the healthcare industry, which even The Economist just called, a “racket”. Just like somebody as brown as that could not have presided over the greatest decrease of US life expectancy ever… even including the two world wars…

Ah, in case you wonder, my closest family friends are as brown as Obama, and the latter is a personal friend. Qui aime bien, chatie bien

But the truth is neither young, nor old, it does not have color, nor gender. Only racists, ageists and sexists have those. 

***

Marie Antoinette led France into war against her own country, Austria (according to the devious plot of engaging France in a war she couldn’t win… this ended with her execution for the highest crime of highest treason imaginable: launching a war to lose it…).

Madame de Pompadour, once the king’s overpowering mistress, became his Prime Minister, for seven years, bringing a reversal of alliances and a world war (which lasted seven years). The North America portion of that war is known in the USA as the “French and Indian War”. Thanks partly to Pompadour, Britain propped up racist Prussia as an attack dog against Austria and France, leading, ultimately, to the disappearance of Poland, and a racist Germany in the 19th century which treated Slavs and Jews as subhumans. Thus, out of Pompadour’s folly, would ultimately grow Nazism.

Meanwhile, having killed her husband, among other self promoting activities, empress Catherine the Great swallowed Ukraine, the Baltics, most of Poland…

Human beings are according to the ideas, not according to some outward parameters. Unfortunately, not only Hitler believed the latter… 

Sarcasm doesn’t a reality make. At best, it makes for fake communications.

***

Obama had spoken well a few weeks ago, of the ways of not thinking revered by lazy idiots, he implied. Those are called the “woke” culture (culture in the sense of monkeys having “culture”), and the “cancel” culture (in practice lynch mobs).

So I hope Obama can read this and use his neurons more creatively… Sarcasm, woke and cancel are all fake ways of thinking. Beyond fake news, they make up fake minds. Exactly what we do not need if we want to stop the Sixth Mass Extinction, the one caused by that crashing comet known as humanity.

Nota Bene: Speaking at a private plutocratic event on leadership in Singapore, a financial conspiracy center, Mr Obama, financial conspirator extraordinaire, said while in office he had mused what a world run by women would look like.

“Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us [men].

“I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything… living standards and outcomes… If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way,”

 

Heil Zuck! Heil Bill! Your Pet President Will Do As You Say!

May 11, 2019

There is this shocking video just out of Barack Obama. Now Obama is supposedly an ex-civil servant. Somebody who is supposed to serve the public. Instead, Obama spent his presidency consulting plutocrats to find out what they recommended to do (as the plutocrats control the media, they conditioned the general public to opine that, if Obama was getting his advice from plutocrats, he was getting advice from the world’s wisest people… Nevermind that many of these plutocrats became wealthy thanks to governmental plots, some of them more than a century old). Obama is still best friend with plutocrats, but Obama wants everybody to know that the advice was not all one way. It’s also in the best interest of plutocrats to pretend that Obama was not just a puppet, but capable of opinion on his own.

Bill Gates (III) founded Microsoft, thanks to his mom being on the Board of IBM (which gave college dropout Bill a golden contract). Now one of the world’s wealthiest men, showered by Obama with honors and responsibilities, Bill Gates wants the world to know that he calls Obama for advice… On nothing (how to treat their mysterious, capricious, superficial spouses happy). So get that: Gates wants us all to know he calls Obama to get advice on the most stupid stuff imaginable.

In truth, of course, it’s the reverse, and the exact opposite which most significantly happened: Bill gave important advice to so-called Barack on important stuff. Just as PM Thatcher was made by the Murdoch family (yeah, they came from Perth, Australia, small world isn’t it? There, they controlled media…).

And when Barrack needed more friends, to get advice from, it was not Bill, it was Elon, or it was Warren, or it was Jeff, or Marc… How many times did Marc go to the Elysee Palace? Can he count that far? Probably not, you see, marc has plenty of PhDs, but he studied just a few months in College… And then, of course there are all those plutocrats smart enough to stay out of the lights.
They breathed together (conspirare), or at least, phoned together… we have the proof now and they are so arrogant that they think that, by flaunting their relationship, the joke is on us….

Billionaires deserve the “Medal of Freedom” (that’s the child ribbon and star offered by Obama)Obama) to those who own the world, precisely because only them have freedom, and we have to watch while they destroy the world, claiming to save it, as the mighty maniacs enjoy to add insult to injury and annihilation…

The instantaneously wealthy banker who leads France has sent his goons to Marc’s Facebook in the San Francisco Bay to figure out together how to mold the minds through the Internet. I am not making this up, it was published just yesterday:

https://www.wsj.com/articles/facebook-to-give-special-access-to-french-regulators-1542049089?mod=article_inline

Hey, Barrack was going there every two weeks, why not macron, then. Aren’t they all friends? A Palo Alto friend of mine was suffering below the presidential helicopters every two weeks… If Marc the Ignorant doesn’t like what you publish, Marc the Ignorant will delete you:

Facebook Deletion Center, Berlin, Germany. There Botticelli gets condemned and executed by Ignorant and Unappreciative hypocritical robot pigeons paid crumbs by Facebook, with Macron, Obama, Trump, NSA, CIA, and company watching over. Of course, they don’t really care about censoring Middle Ages paintings, they are just doing this, according to the Red Herring technique, which the pigeons invented without even noticing. Heil Zuck!

I have been already deleted many times, in many Internet outlets… More than one thousand and one (1,001) times… For just thinking better and more progressive. Many deletions were outright mysterious. The top was when The Guardian in London (long secretly financed by the friend of Barack, Bill) banned me, after telling me I was Jihadist… As Hitler said, paraphrasing, the bigger the lie, the more it works.

George Orwell’ 1984 has arrived. What is cleared is that all the characters mentioned above have hijacked the Republic.

What to do? Simple, the Roman Republic did it (until the Roman plutocrats hijacked it). Limit wealth absolutely, limit political power absolutely. Presidents, plutocrats and elected representatives have way way way too much power. They could burn the entire planet in way less time than it took to burn Notre Dame. This Davos crowd is the number one culprit of the mass extinction out there. When the planet gets out of control, all too soon, they should be sent to the guillotine of public condemnation.

Obama, thanks to his control of media, has augmented enormously the CO2 emissions of the USA, relative to what they should have been, by deliberately augmenting fracking in the USA. Yes, most US citizens enjoy the ride (and so do I: my state of the art car is large by Euro standards). Obama’s friends told him to just call fracking a “bridge fuel”. So US citizens adore their funny Obama, and their fuel. More fuel than ever. More fuel than any other country.

How long will the laughter last?

Not too long.

When the sea starts to go up an inch per year, question will come. But then of course, a distracting nuclear war could come in handy…. Right now Obama’s and Gates’ kindergarten jokes and spirit are enough to keep the naive out there in check. But when that’s not enough anymore, watch out…

Obama Wanted Trump To Win

January 19, 2017

Clinton lost Because Obama wanted it, deep down inside. Machiavel On The Potomac!

Some recent extracts from Obama (link below):“You can’t say it, but you know it’s true!… The end of the Republic has never looked better!… I am going to use it at Goldman Sachs next year!”

Did Obama want Trump to win consciously, or unconsciously? That brings the question of what is conscious, and what is not. The subconscious is neurological circuitry which exists already, but have not been visited officially by consciousness.

At That Point, Obama Told Everybody That He was Going To Be Dropped, Just As A Used Microphone. However, He had A Secret Plan, A Second Foundation: Beat Clinton, And Thus Stay The Head Of the Opposition and the Core Of Hope

At That Point, Obama Told Everybody That He was Going To Be Dropped, Just As A Used Microphone (he dropped the mike next, see link below). However, Obama had A Secret Plan, A Second Foundation: Beat Clinton, And Thus Stay The Head Of the Opposition and the Core Of Hope. Hope That Will Work Better Next T

Obama just said (January 8) that “if you can find a plan that is demonstrably better than Obamacare, I will be the first to publicly support repealing Obamacare. Eight years ago, I asked if there was something better, and got no answer”.

Of course Obama knows very well that more than three dozen countries have better plans than Obamacare, and they are all variations of what would be of Medicare For All”. Namely you make basic health care a government program out of the clutches of plutocrats like Warren Buffet. (Warren Buffet being one saintly plutocrats of the “Democratic” Party.)

Full version:

Anyway, the initial proposition is best as a question: Why would Obama have sincerely wanted for Clinton to win?

***

Would Obama have sincerely wanted for Clinton to win so that he could become insignificant, replaced, eclipsed?

Of course not.

Obama wanted Hillary to win, because he wanted to save his legacy, bleats the clueless sheep. Sheep is not smart: sheep thinks as one, as the group: know the mind of one sheep, know the mind of all. Actually the shepherd think for the sheep.

Obama’s legacy, as a legislative body, is shot, there is nothing to save It’s so shot through, it amounts so much to nothing, Obama knows it all too well… He may want to correct history and finally make his mark.

***

Why was Obama’s “legacy” so much ado about nothing?

Because Obama let himself be manipulated, feeling that was good “navigation” (a selfish concept central to his worldview). Not that he had a choice. He was not just financed by these people. He was programmed by them.

Ten years ago, Obama used to crow that he had been reading the Financial Times for so long, he actually had started before the Financial Times became required reading among “Democratic” leaders.

Obama has a good reason to be resentful about how his  “legacy” got mangled. Vengeance is a powerful motivation. Who did the mangling? Was that Trump? Trump has nothing to do with it. Far from it: it turns out that Trump was right, all along, on some very important points.

Obama failed, from all the way back, including from the admiration for Reagan, which perverted the Democratic establishment, the Clintons, and even Obama himself. Trump, on the other hand, opposed the globalocracy promoted by Reagan and Paul Krugman. As early as 1987, for all to see.

Obama’s legacy is a plane which gathered speed for take-off, yet, not enough speed to clear the trees. It has crashed. One can drive 3,000 miles across the US, and never leave a state thoroughly controlled by Republicans. Everything indicates that Trump, if he plays his cards well, will have a supermajority in 2018.

The Financial Times has some good articles, occasionally. However, it’s like saying that Pravda (the Soviet equivalent of the New York Times) had good article. Fundamentally, the Financial Times is a fundamentalist Thatcherian-Reaganian newspaper: “There Is No Alternative!” … to the fundamental principle is that greed is the best motivation of human beings, including for building a morality.    

As I have said for eight years, there was never much of a Obama government installed to instill hope. First Hank Paulson (Goldman Sachs and Bush Treasury Secretary) told Obama what to do, even before Obama got elected. Worst: Obama agreed to it. Of course, Obama’s economic adviser was Lawrence Summers (re-Goldman Sachs, Harvard). Obama was completely controlled by the Democratic machine, with the Goldman Sachs government, in place since before Bill Clinton’s election. Nancy Pelosi, head of the Democratic majority in Congress, also agreed to Paulson’s plan, after Paulson went down to one knee in front of her.

What happened? Obama was too young, too inexperienced, too naive strategically (street-smart is not world-smart). He was also a tool of the establishment, and he trusted those who trusted him. And it all turned out, into eight years wasted.

Now Obama, at last, is free of all these financial goons and their obsequious servants.

Whereas, if Clinton had won, they would have won. Instead, they were destroyed. Let me repeat slowly: the tormentors of Obama, those who lead Obama astray, those who made Obama’s legacy, mostly the color of a skin, this waste of hope, have been vanquished. Vanquished by Trump, yes, but vanquished. Why would Obama want it otherwise?

Now Obama is the core of hope, the future. Maybe he can make Michelle run, get another eight years that way. This time, with the correct mindset, not as a puppet.

We will see.

Why Obama Failed, Intimate Version

January 18, 2017

Obama is very smart, world-educated, so how come most of what he did will quickly evaporate, and how come his “signature achievement”, Obamacare, mostly failed? (Some premiums of health insurance are up to an incredible $39,000, a year, for a couple; Obamacare “deductibles” of $6,000 are common.)

I said right from the start, that Obamacare would fail, and how. It did. Obama says that, whoever he asked at the time among politicians, including Republicans, nobody could come up with anything better than Obamacare (he himself proposed what I proposed, Medicare For All, unanimously rejected by the powers that be).

Ask the lost fools out there, and they will tell you that Obama failed because of the Republicans. This is an anti-idea Obama himself contributed to launch when he had a supermajority, to deflect the observation that he was doing exactly what Bush had been doing just prior. It is an answer as genuine as saying the antibiotics failed, because of the germs.

Poignantly, all the more as it was unknowingly, the president himself pointed out the reason in his last press conference: Obama said any president is guided by his advisors. Obama’s team of advisors, though, was not chosen by him, and came short in one way: there was nobody there he could trust to “speak truth to power” (except for his wife, but she was part of the system, being part of the Chicago machine). 

All Of Obama's Allowed Friends Clang Way Too Much To Plutocracy, The establishment, And The Criminal Past. All Of Obama’s Advisors Arguably Belong To The Corrupt, Self-Fulfilling Establishment.

All Of Obama’s Allowed Friends Clang Way Too Much To Plutocracy, The Establishment, And The Criminal Past. All Of Obama’s Advisors Arguably Belonged To The Corrupt, Self-Fulfilling, Self-Referential Establishment.

Here is an example: the US Patent System is broken (to the point US companies use China or Europe for patent protection!) All advisors around Obama advised him to make it worse, because, making it worse advantaged the giant tech monopolies. Obama went along, not knowing any better than the fact millions of dollars of his checks came from said monopolies and the dissembling faces and lying lips of the multi-billionaires who were always around. Small, but crucial inventors, and US innovation are among the victims.

Of course, Obama was not told he was making the Patent System worse, to advantage antitrust violators. Instead, Obama went around, claiming he wanted to protect from “non-practicing entities”. In his stupidity, he did not realize that this meant any inventor. The guy was that dumb, because his advisors were that perverse (not knowing it either, as they just focus on the dollar signs coming their way).

“It will be granted that folly is a mental disease, and of folly there are two kinds, madness and stupidity.” Plato, “Timaeus”.

Stupidity often arises from ignorance. Ignorance of facts, or ignorance of possible logics, including of the emotional kind.

Many frenzied maniacs say Trump is an idiot. By this, they may simply mean that they are too ignorant to understand that Trump has a different personality, with different experiences, all very idiosyncratic. Trump did not destroy 18 other presidential candidates without being smart, in some important sense. (Some will observe that means that, by the same token, I consider Hitler smart in some ways. Sure. The military defeat of France and Britain in May 1940 is pretty much attributable to Hitler outsmarting the top general of the French High Command: Hitler laid a trap, in the Netherland, and the stupid French fell in it!)

How do we know Obama failed? Listen to him, or his obsequious, crazed sycophants: they celebrate the fact that Obama “saved the economy”. They forget that Obama had not run to “save the economy”. They don’t tell you how he did it: he followed the plan of Hank Paulson, the Goldman Sachs CEO, Secretary of Treasury of Bush had ordered him to follow. Nor what it consisted of (transferring asset from taxpayers to the wealthiest people in the world, so that they will be as wealthy again, as they were before).

Instead of the nebulous “change you can believe in”, Obama’s “rule” consisted in an extension of Bush. And that’s his proudest achievement: Bush cleaning boy. Obama persisted in 2010, by signing a further extension of the Bush tax cuts to the wealthiest.

How did we get a presidency that brain-washed? By isolating the president from common sense. Obama was told to drop his close friends he had for decades, and have no contacts with them whatsoever. Immensely rich “Democratic” operators  told Obama that. As they had dropped the presidency into his lap, he knew better than to confront them.

Bowles, Podesta told Obama:”Friends only cause problems”.  Obama was allowed to keep just three of the “Chum Gang” who had no serious brain of their own, and were extremely scared to disobey the authorities. They went around like human dogs, following their master everywhere (the wives promptly divorced).

Podesta, a lawyer who believes in UFO, big time, got launched under Clinton, and then sold his influence in the “Podesta Group”, making hundreds of millions.  

Actually, here is an anecdote, to give you an idea of the level of dangerous lunacy evolved in the so-called “Deep State”. Two of the preceding are siblings, and two other siblings, having incomparably more brains, and scientific educations, were excluded (lest they told Barack what was up and down). One of the sibling worked for a company we will call B (the other sibling worked for a while as a PhD at NASA). At B, sibling IV worked on an aircraft. He was told to sign plenty of papers consigning him to secrecy, under the threat of terrible punishments. He signed. Then he was told:”That was just the legal stuff. In truth, we will just kill you.” After a safe period, he quit B and became a lawyer… This is the Deep State, US style.

So no wonder the environment of Obama was strictly controlled, by the Deep State, under the orders of the Deepest State, namely the plutocracy of the .01%

Obama submitted to this humiliating treatment, because he was promised ever better things (remember the Nobel Prize? Or was that an obedience prize?). The religion of Obama is “navigation” (his word and concept). “Navigation” consists in doing what he is being told by the powers that be. Said another way: “leading from behind”. Leading from behind the Deepest State. This propensity is why Obama was selected.

Obama is “worth” 24 million dollars now, and projected to be ten times that very soon.

The idea of Obama being unable to talk to his friends was that he would be left with the servants of the plutocracy to interact with, and them exclusively. So he socialized extensively with, say, Sheryl Sandberg (ex-paramour of Harvard and Clinton’s Larry Summers, now COO of the spy operation Facebook; never being elected, a young Sandberg was in a huge office at Treasury with a big US flag behind her)

Anywhere, there you have it. Obama loves to say that one should not “do stupid stuff”. Well, how does he know about the countless stupidities of his presidency? From reading the fawning plutocratic “Main Stream Media” press? From all the sycophants around, and greedsters delirious with the desire of being employed by the giant monopolies Obama favored so much?

Obama needed true friends, all-knowing, and completely independent, around him, to chew the fat (Charlemagne and Philippe IV Le Bel of France had them, and Pericles).

Trump has a much stronger personality. He has pulled all around him a number of trusted advisors and family, all of them with the ability to talk truth to power.

You don’t want stupid? Have a debate with serious contradictors. Obama did not, and thus did stupid. So stupid, that it is only now dawning on his subconscious, in the last few months, how stupid it all was. And that’s one of the reason why Obama’s subconscious did not want Clinton to be elected. The continuation of the masquerade, somehow offended the last shreds of decency that his ominous career left him with. 

Yes, Obama should have backed up Senator Sanders. Too late now. Another stupid indecency. Fate marches on, as in Greek tragedies of times past.

Pericles did not even accept an invitation to share a meal with his friends. For 30 years. He did not want to get corrupted that way. But then he was spending much of his time with the top philosophers in the world: Protagoras, Zeno of Elea, Anaxagoras, and Aspasia (Pericles had a son with his partner, the stunning Aspasia, from Miletus; Aspasia wrote the most famous discourse “of” Pericles).

And now it is all over. What sort of thermonuclear puppet was that, who was not even allowed by his minders to talk to his real friends? History will want to know, and will be relentless.

In other, but related news, it turns out that 450 million years of paleoclimate reveal a sinister possibility: that scientists dreadfully underestimated considerably the sensitivity of the climate to the CO2 density. This means that the potential rise of temperature facing us by 2100 is 4.5 degree Centigrade (the old maximal was 3 C). An unfathomable catastrophe.

One of the “authorized” idiots, a guy without moral or epistemological compass, one of boyfriends of Obama, from way back, told me grandly this week that I was “inappropriate”. Well, F you.

Those who did nothing in these times of the greatest perils, for humanity, are not just fools. They are criminals. You did not just fail, you did not just fail civilization, you failed intelligence in the galaxy. Off with your minds! Requiem for Obama. Warning for his successor!

This Alone Validates Clinton’s Loss

December 31, 2016

I was poking around the definition of “national debt”, by consulting various online entities, some of them governmental. “National debt” varies according to what one considers. I was looking to see whether “Quantitative Easing” (the buying by the central banks of depleted assets to the wealthiest to make them wealthy again — the way it was done by our unforgivable leaders).

The smallest interpretation of “national debt” in the case of the USA is around $13 trillions, 80% of US GDP. That smallest notion of debt considers only the FEDERAL debt held by the PUBLIC… After excluding all sorts of obligations (like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, real estates entities held by the US government)… or what the US government owes to future Social Security recipients (most of the US population). The smallest number is what the Demoncrats love to brandish. However, it will not affect the stunning discovery I made (below).

This Is The Smallest Interpretation Of Debt, The One Held By The Public, After EXCLUDING All Sorts Of Gigantic Obligations, Bankrupt Governmental Entiries, And Inter-Governmental Debt, And Also After Excluding the "Fed Balance Sheet"

This Is The Smallest Interpretation Of Debt, The One Held By The Public, After EXCLUDING All Sorts Of Gigantic Obligations, Bankrupt Governmental entities, And Inter-Governmental Debt, And Also After Excluding the “Fed Balance Sheet”

Obama augmented enormously the US National Debt. What for?

The OECD considers that US government debt, including state and local government, is 125% of US GDP. By comparison, the OECD considers that the “general government debt” of socialist France is a bit less, 120% of GDP (same link).

The maximal interpretation of the US National Debt is well above 50 trillion dollars, more than 300% of GDP. Similar numbers, in terms of percentage of GDP, are true for comparable countries (such as France, UK, etc.)

The US government seizes some revenues, like the Social Security tax and consumes it right away (instead of putting the money in the Social Security Trust Fund). The result of this sort of maneuvers is “intergovernmental debt”, which is around 6 trillion dollars. I knew this. This “borrowing” from Social Security has to be absolutely incorporated in the notion of National Debt, because it represents borrowing from the Public by other (unwilling) means. Fair accounting requires to do this.

By this reckoning, the internationally recognized US Federal debt, in December 2015, a year ago,  was 101% of US GDP (a number comparable to that of socialist France… I don’t mean that as an insult: the present presidency of France is held by the French Socialist Party, and so is the Parliament and Senate! They will be thrown out of power in five months.)

But then I learned something new, which jumped at me. The US National Debt reached 106% of GDP in July 2016, six months later. That is an annual rate of augmentation of roughly 10% a year. In a way, it makes sense: when Obama was inaugurated, the US National Debt was just 68%. So, in seven years, Obama increased the US debt by 33%, a rate of augmentation of nearly 5% a year. So Obama just doubled his rate of augmentation of US debt in 2016.

After I pointed out this enormous jump of the debt on Tweeter, I got the following reaction (from which I borrowed the title of this essay):

Philip N. Beam Sr.@PhilipBeamSr

@Tyranosopher @CraigRBrittain @wikileaks Just this alone should be enough to validate Hillary’s loss.

Indeed.

And this debt catastrophe is not going to improve: the cost of Obamacare is up 25% from 2016 to 2017. The New York Times and the Reaganite Paul Krugman (the fellow Nobel of Obama and self-aggrandizing, self-described as “the conscience of a liberal”) swooned that this 25% jump in Obamacare cost, was just a one-time augmentation.

However, as there are no serious cost controls in Obamacare, this is highly unlikely: taxpayers will have to pay increasingly plutocrats such as Warren buffet, who made many billions out of US health care, to better lecture the losers down there who don’t know how to invest or work, and, moreover, vote for Trump.  

One may wonder how, mechanically dear leader Obama generated so much debt. The following graph explains it all: Obama lowered the taxes on the wealthy, while showering the poor with gold, and various services, to make them stupidly favorable. This is a very old method, invented and practiced industrially, by Roman emperors (it did not end well).

Under Obama Tax Receipts, Which Come Mostly From Taxing The Rich, Were Kept Artificially, Unsustainably Low. No Wonder the Hyper Rich Were Mostly All For Obama, And Against The (For Them Frighteningly) Unpredictable Trump.

Under Obama Tax Receipts, Which Come Mostly From Taxing The Rich, Were Kept Artificially, Unsustainably Low. No Wonder the Hyper Rich Were Mostly All For Obama, And Against The (For Them Frighteningly) Unpredictable Trump.

So Obama was a Progressive In Name Only (PINO), or DINO (Democrat In Name Only). He built up a giant deficit, and thus National Debt, so that his friends would stay rich.

Yes, indeed. During the 2008 crisis, part of the wealthiest lost most of their wealth to fellow wealthy people (thanks to a lot of leveraging, as organized by Clinton, Bill). Obama could have let the entities in difficulty go bankrupt, as Reagan and Bush Sr. did in the 1980s. And then buy them on the cheap. Instead he went a different route, using TARP and paying TARP with Quantitative Easing. A route which made the wealthiest, wealthier. (He probably does not understand this, to this day!)

A related matter is the striking improvement of some US socioeconomic metrics in the last couple of months before the US presidential election.

For example, the US median family income rocketed up in the last few weeks before the elections.. I was very surprised by this, and suspicious. Indeed, the US median family income peaked, in real dollars, in 1998, when it succumbed to Bill Clinton’s pro-wealth policies of the Goldman Sachs government. Ever since it has been down, as Democrat and Republican leadership followed the sort of Reagan, trickle down policies which got great demoncratic leaders such as Robert Rubin, Lawrence Summers and Paul Krugman launched (Rubin was CEO of Goldman Sachs, while Summers and Krugman were at the White House, telling Reagan what to do).

In Brazil, president Dilma Rousseff did a similar trick: she cooked the numbers to make the economy look better than it really was. She was re-elected, thanks to those numbers, but when the cooking surfaced, and started to smell bad, she was impeached. It turns out that the Brazilian sociopolitical leadership is thoroughly corrupt. All the way to socialist icons and ex-guerillas (such as Dilma; by the way, Dilma did not profit personally materially from the cooking of the numbers… except that she got, however fleetingly, re-elected).

Some will say that the USA is not Brazil. Indeed, the USA is much more corrupt, so the institutionalization of the corruption in the USA is hard to even point out, lest one is ready to be called a lunatic.

It is not just financial corruption, it’s also media, even mental corruption, which is more extensive in the USA: when Brazilian leaders lose an election, they don’t accuse Russia.

So did Obama’s underlings cook the numbers? In light of the stupendous augmentation of the debt in the months prior to the presidential election, one can only be suspicious.

Augmenting the US National Debt, my dear Obama, at a ten percent annual rate, was trying to buy the presidential election. That’s how history will remember it. History will also remember that you tried to lower the American Republic to the status of vulgar Banana Republic, by claiming it was all Russia’s fault.

For years, the USA crowed that it was the world’s hacking master, even making Iranian nuclear equipment spin out of control (Stuxnet virus). Vast arms of the government masquerading as private entities, among them Apple, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, were hacking the world, and it was fine.

A real democratic republic and open society should never underestimate others’ propensity to mimic anti-democratic, anti-republican and vicious means!

This happened before: the Athenian empire behaved several times in terrible ways. And that was probably why Athens lost the Penopolesian war (Athens had stolen the Delian League treasury, and destroyed the island state of Melos, both for no good reason, among other exploits of demented cruelty unbound). Later, other Greek states imitated the Athenian ways, and Athens lost the war, and half of her population. She survived only thanks to Sparta (the ultimate ignominy!)

Behaving badly feels good, until on is found out by the public. Happy new year Obama and your sycophantic pro-plutocratic media!

Blame Obama’s Nihilism For Syria’s Destruction

December 17, 2016

Pontificating Pseudo-Leftists Destroyed The Better Values, Including Care and Rationality, By Claiming They Were Not Worth Fighting For, Nothing Was. From This Obscene Nihilism, Of Slimy Souls, We Will All Suffer All Too Practically.

The Economist has woken up, from its Trump Derangement Syndrome, to the reality of the catastrophic moral abyss known as the Obama administration. Subtitle of The Economist: The war in Syria: The lessons from Aleppo’s tragic fateWHEN INTERESTS TRIUMPH OVER VALUES TERRIBLE THINGS CAN HAPPEN. (Dec 17th 2016.)

The interest of whom, dear The Economist? Not just Putin’s, Assad, and the plutocratic circles in London which professionally love the Assad family’s billions. One speaks here also of the interests of prima donna Michelle Obama and the US Democratic Party elite presently still in power, and the interest of those who feed them all, the globalocracy and the worldwide plutocracy, especially the one of financial type. That interest goes beyond profiteering from those who support massacres. It goes as far as destroying the values which make civilization possible. Let me explain.

Aleppo Barrel Bombing By Assad Regime Summer 2015. What the Joint Franco-American Intervention Was Supposed To Stop

Aleppo Barrel Bombing By Assad Regime Summer 2015. What the Joint Franco-American Intervention Was Supposed To Stop

The joint French Republic USA attack on Assad after Assad killed thousands of civilians in gas attacks, would have taken out the entire Syrian Air Force, including helicopters dropping barrel bombs.

Obama’s last minute loss of nerves, and calling off the attack while French bomber pilots were already strapped in their seats, was a moral failure of Auschwitzian proportions. Of such moral failures was the road to World War Two and Auschwitz, paved. (And it did not take too many of these failures, barely more than a couple, before the insane moods had set-in, and world war was unavoidable.)

Says The Economist: GROZNY, Dresden, Guernica: some cities have made history by being destroyed. Aleppo, once Syria’s largest metropolis, will soon join their ranks. Its 1,000-year-old Muslim heritage has turned to dust; Russian aircraft have targeted its hospitals and schools; its citizens have been shelled, bombed, starved and gassed (see article). Nobody knows how many of the tens of thousands who remain in the last Sunni Arab enclave will die crammed inside the ruins where they are sheltering. But even if they receive the safe passage they have been promised, their four-year ordeal in Aleppo has blown apart the principle that innocent people should be spared the worst ravages of war. Instead, a nasty, brutish reality has taken hold—and it threatens a more dangerous and unstable world.”

A mood that political leaders and dictators can get away with mass murder for all to see has set-in. This has happened many times in the past:  that change of moods is always necessary before great wars. Just as it did in Germany before 1914 (after massacring hundreds of thousands of Namibian Natives, the Herero and Nama, as if they were rats, or game animals, offering money for their heads, hunting them for sport). Just as it did happen worldwide in the 1930s (Japan attacked China, Italy attacked Ethiopia, US plutocrats and the Nazi dictator attacked the Spanish Republic, and all made like bandits, getting away with anything, including the biggest lies they could imagine, etc.)

Encouraged by these profitable pursuits, Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany constituted the “Axis”, in 1936, while US plutocrats helped make the Axis all it could be. The Axis was a series of diplomatic treaties. But, more importantly, the Axis was a sharing of satanic values. Shared satanic values which the leaders of the Axis believed was the best way to success. And for a while, for them, it worked. In the end, it worked only for the Deus Ex Nachina, the USA itself. (However, because that this Machiavellian strategy worked in the past for the USA is no guarantee that it will work in the future. Actually, it won’t because Kim’s nukes will soon be able to reach the USA; in WWII, nobody hostile could even get to the US mainland!)

Italy, Japan, Germany conquered, and, or came to control  huge swathes of territory, through the nastiest, most satanic ways. The success of these Plutonic values led countries such as Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the USSR, Thailand, Iraq, etc., to join, de facto and through treaties, the Axis. And of course, this further success encouraged plutocrats to help the Axis (just as Putin’s and Tehran’s success will encourage others to join them… such as Turkey’s Sultan). It all snowballed, until the French Republic, followed by the Commonwealth, declared war. France, though, got overwhelmed through surprise, bad luck, an uncautious head of the army, reason…

And also France came down in a few days in May 1940,  because the French (and British) Air Forces had not enjoyed enough practice. The French Air Force and the RAF took a few weeks to learn the tricks the Nazis had learned and refined in air combat in the preceding four years, say, while bombing Guernica and attacking ground forces, in Spain. If you want peace, prepare for war, by practicing war.  

If you can’t beat them, join them in fighting, you will improve.

The brains of many present world politicos, such as Vladimir Putin, Assad, Xi, Kim have set-in into a more aggressive mindset. Thanks to Obama’s incompetent childishness, and holy-than-thou attitude. Maybe their epigenetics, not just their neurohormones, emotions, feeling, reconstructed memories and  ideas have installed in their heads operating systems which toy with millions killed and displaced as if it were a chess game.

A small, but telling example? China just seized an US military underwater drone, while the civilians manning an US vessel a few hundreds meters away watched in disbelief. The US made a demarche to recover their stolen robot.

Trump’s reaction: “China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters — rips it out of water and takes it to China in unprecedented act,” Mr. Trump wrote in a Twitter message. His original tweet on the subject on Saturday called the seizure an “unpresidented act,” but a replacement message corrected the spelling error. Spelling error? Assuredly, a judicious one.

Many of the best ideas have started as errors. The USA has been “unpresidented” for eight years, indeed.

We are feeling what not having hope feels like,” Michelle Obama told Winfrey in response to a question about whether President Obama had achieved the “hope and change” he promised while campaigning in 2008. ” The self-absorbed Michelle did not mean Aleppo. She obviously meant she has to give up on that big presidential plane in 4 weeks. Hey, no more vacation in the billionaire’s palaces anymore, with the media moguls? Otherwise her husband’s presidency has been abysmal on all what can be measured: poverty (eight million more!), food stamps (13 million more!), employment rate (not the UNemployment index known as U2!), home ownership, cost of health care, cost of education, etc. The Obama presidency was pretty much a sham, organized by spoiled, ignorant children, but hundreds of thousands have now died because of it, and everything indicates that this is just the beginning:

The Economist says: “Britain’s parliament voted against taking even limited military action. As millions of people fled to Syria’s neighbours, including Lebanon and Jordan, most European countries looked the other way —or put up barriers to keep refugees out.

PARTICULAR BLAME FALLS ON BARACK OBAMA. America’s president has treated Syria as a trap to be avoided. His smug prediction that Russia would be bogged down in a “quagmire” there has proved a historic misjudgment.

Throughout his presidency, Mr Obama has sought to move the world from a system where America often acted alone to defend its values, with a few countries like Britain riding shotgun, to one where the job of protecting international norms fell to all countries—because everyone benefited from the rules.

[Or when naivety becomes criminal, murderous idiocy!]

Aleppo is a measure of how that policy has failed. As America has stepped back, the vacuum has been filled not by responsible countries that support the status quo, but by the likes of Russia and Iran which see the promotion of Western values as an insidious plot to bring about regime change in Moscow and Tehran.”

Entirely correct, The Economist. Barack Obama has proven to be very far from a progressive, or a defender of the better values (as one would expect from somebody financed by Goldman Sachs more than any other entity). Instead, Obama has proven to be a right-wing terminator of people. He let the massacre in Syria happen in slow motion.

Obama also spurned and terminated the better values as something worth defending (and thus Obama served Goldman Sachs and its ilk, lack of better values). Obama taught us all to be moral slime. To avoid “quagmires”, Obama became one himself. Obama should have given war a chance (if John Lennon had been around, he may well have concluded that!) Invertebrates never had a chance. Invertebrates like Obama.

In truth, Obama, like all pseudo-leftists, is a poser without values much beyond greed (such as the ravenous greed for power or Nobel prizes). A nihilist. Western progressive values, or the better values of humanity itself, under the pseudo-leftist doctrine, cannot be imposed, because they are viewed as imperialism itself.

This is why Obama put Putin, rather than the French Republic, in charge of Syria: because Putin, or the theocrats in Tehran, or the plutocrats in Beijing, have values which are just as valuable, Obama implicitly, yet extremely repetitively, said. (The reason for this is that the main financier of Obama’s first campaign was Goldman-Sachs: thus the superior values of Goldman-Sachs were transmitted to Obama in a superior way: greed, self-advancement, navigation, etc. Financial manipulators are dictators behind the stage friendly to those dictators who take the stage)

Politics select for self-obsessed slime. Obama has none of the higher values higher human beings are, whatsoever, but he is good at faking ennui and a loftier stance. A comedian. What is his motivation to do so? Obviously a world without redeeming values fit those who breathe greed perfectly. So Obama, by refusing to defend values, manu militari, is actually making the plutocratic mood progress, thus making those who will pay his bills in a month, richer, more powerful, and more generous.

The plutocratic ideal is fundamentally nihilist: it replaces the better angels of our nature, which humanity absolutely need to exist, with low and vicious aspects, and neurohormones, like greed, power onto others, cruelty, etc.  

And what of the little pseudo-leftists who feel that Obama is the best thing since whole wheat bread, and have been clamoring for more of the same, hundreds of thousands dead, millions of refugees full of Islamism? Many of them have elected. not to defend values, but on hating those who have them. Because hatred is a strong emotion.

Also, most of the pseudo-leftists are just ignorant, and ignorance is not just comfortable, but easy to acquire.

By refusing to act against hatred, Obama has refused to defend the better angels of our values. Instead he has left open the road to irrationality (inventing excuses for not defending said better values) and hatred itself.

Thus Obama contributed to making a much bigger war more likely. Indeed, Obama has told us that to see half a million people killed in what used to be the richest part of the Roman empire, is no concern of his. Nothing that motivates him. Half a million people dead, dictators, some nuclear armed, reinforced, and Obama congratulates himself for having avoided a “quagmire”.

Obama’s powerless UN ambassador, ironically named Power, complained to Russia that it had no decency. that Power chick does not know that, when one has the power of extermination, decency is irrelevant. She and her boss, Obama, are that ignorant. Obama did not just unpresident himself, he was never really president, just taking orders from his (plutocratic) minders. Doing so, not realizing that only military force imposes and preserves civilization, puts us,and all the better values, at risk of being ruled by the spirit of Pluto, at the hands of plutocrats. And the proof is the powerlessness of Obama’s pious declarations on what constitute decent behaviors, the exact behaviors he violated. Now the jerks are compulsively talking about Russia’s sofware prowess, after letting Putin and Assad ravage Aleppo, and Syria.

Might is not necessarily right, indeed. However, right without might, cannot be. Ever.

Civilization is fundamentally about force. The force of the highest human values reorganizing nature, including human nature, for the better, fighting adversity, and winning.

And to do that, to win, we need not just smarts as Ulysses, but also might, like Heracles.

Slime is cool, indeed, but it could not possibly invent civilization. Only entrepreneur could, and did. That’s why we have hands, big hands. Give us that world which we shall mold, for the better; the empire of humanity, this is what us humans make, and always made. The divine primate. Slime, those who will not defend the values which make us the most human, we have to wash out at sea, before their impotence exterminates us.

How Do You Spell Obama?

December 3, 2016

In 12 months even democrats, especially democrats, will not know how to spell O B A M A…. At least one may hope so. That would mean that the mood has, finally changed. Instead of being in the mood of denying crucial social indicators, when Democrats would forget their obsession with Obama’s skin color, and would concentrate onto more significant characteristics, such as WHITE POPULATION LIFE EXPECTANCY.

By neglecting life itself, Democrats’ souls sold themselves to the Demon (yes, Demon, Satan, figuratively, but tellingly speaking; BTW, “Shatan”, Satan, also exists in Islam and has functional equivalents in Zoroastrianism, and, thus India).

Democrats indulged in demonic distraction: long ago, the leadership of the Democratic Party sold their souls. This happened under Jimmy Carter, a Democratic saint who ordered the secret attack against Afghanistan. (A fact democrats try very hard to not pay any attention to.) While the US was busy destroying the world, China was busy grabbing everything in sight, especially production (China also holds the largest amount of US government debt, which makes the… US as strong as the Pentagon):

If We Produce Everything, And You Produce Nothing, We Are Everything, And You Are Nothing.

If We Produce Everything, And You Produce Nothing, We Are Everything, And You Are Nothing.

[The real production situation is even worse, and getting even much worse, very quickly, when one looks at manufacturing; another dreadful twist is that South East Asia production is climbing even faster than China, although not in the graph above; see below.]

That attack against Afghanistan was a conspiracy of a Machiavellian index superior to anything Machiavel himself was involved in, or could conceive of. By orders of magnitude: Machiavelli’s activities were between Tuscany and the region immediately east of it, where Cesare Borgia was trying to build a power that could dominate (part of) Italy (although that Biorgia venture was obviously hopeless, considering the immense power of multimillennial France and the ferocity of the uppity Spanish empire!)

Whereas the Democrats, under US president Jimmy Carter encompassed the entire planet in an enormous conspiracy. That conspiracy was deliberately engineered to bring the downfall of the USSR, never mind the millions of Afghans killed in the process. Yes, it worked. The USSR collapsed, and then Harvard and its ilk served poison to Russian president Yeltsin (poison, figuratively speaking; these are not the dreaded “fake news“!). Out of Pluto abuse in Russia came the new Tsar, Putin (who apparently now blocks this site in Russia, just as Xi does in China!) It worked, but the Democrats paid their win with their souls. So when life expectancy of whites went up in the USA, more than 20 years ago, they averted their eyes, and diverted their souls.

Diversion of souls and brains? Watch Obama’s tweeter feed, obsessed as it is by sport teams; sport teams are little more than teams of thieves, as demonstrated by the tax evasion of professional footballers in the order of billions. Relative to Obama, Trump’s tweeter feed looks positively intellectual. Yes, I know, it’s shocking. But I don’t write Obama’s childish tweeter feed. The most admirers footballers in the world are actually some of the greatest known thieves in the world, something which in a demon-power world (pluto-cratic world, to translate…) is of course the best way to educate little children to become themselves demonic monsters.

“The Football Leaks documents “show how the Real Madrid star (Ronaldo) has discreetly deposited 149.5 million euros of sponsorship earnings in tax havens. The forward paid only 5.6 million euros in tax – about 4 percent of this fortune”, wrote Mediapart.”

One of these tax havens, central as a hub, to the tax thievery of people like criminal suspect Ronaldo are the British Virgin Islands, a part of the Brexiting “Great” Britain. Great at tax evasion, for sure. (British organize tax evasion makes Britain, or, at least, British plutocracy, wealthier…)

The preceding, according to the primitives billionaires who own the media in the USA, and, now, most of the world, would make me the author of “fake news”, as it involves “conspiracies”. Mr. Zuckerberg, who owns more than 50 billion dollars and now wears a tie, has indeed decided that “fake news” involve the belief that a “conspiracy” has happened. He knows no history, or then two or three books he claims to have read, so he could fake to be knowledgeable.  

So the Democrats had no more souls, by the time governor Bill Clinton was collaborating with Ronald Reagan on Iran-Contra, putting a remote airport at the disposition of the conniving Republican president’s unlawful venture.

Yesterday Trump saved a few thousand jobs. Obama sneered:Trump will not be able to save jobs, what is he going to do? Wave a magic wand?

Of course. Obama should have taken politics 101. The US president has a magic wand in his hand. Obama had a magic wand in his hand. But, like a dummy, he did not know how to use it. Mike Pence, Trump VP, ex-governor, ex-Congressman replied to the one who did not know how to use his wand: “Trump went to talk to the CEO of Carrier, American to American. We talked. We promised a 7 million dollar/year rebate” Obama could read his teleprompter, but not, really, talk. (The Democrats officially replied taxpayers would pay the 7 million. Well, of course not so. Does not work that way: the US government has several ways to create money ex-nihilo. Plus, he could pass laws to put the tax cheating CEOs in jail for real, and all their collaborators… I am sure the French and the Germans will be eager to help…)

This is a general phenomenon, this obsession with irrelevancies. It is not just about being Obsessive Compulsive about the “glass ceiling”. The Democrats were also Obsessive Compulsive about many mostly irrelevant and 100% misunderstood issues, which enabled them to ignore society’s greatest ills.

The Demoncratic elite was centered on its talking points and thoughtless visions: “Obama saved the economy”, “Quantitative Easing Worked”, “Obama added ten million jobs”, “Obamacare covered some who were not worked, so it worked”, that they did not focus on the obvious flaws of all these observations (Obama followed the Bush-Paulson plan to “save” the economy; in truth he saved the rich, and saved them some more with QE; the population augmented by 24 millions under Obama, but the situation of employment (not U2!) is close to the worse ever; health care in the US is a disaster relative to any other countries, and getting relatively worse, and ever more expensive, etc.)

Democrats were in their own epistemological bubbles, and they persevered: errare humanum est, perseverare diabolicum. They persevere in their errors, by refusing to look at them. Thus they fully deserve the demoncrat label, plutocrat, in other words…

This is not just true in the USA. In Europe domestic production collapsed, in 16 short years, to a quarter of what it used to be, relative to Emerging Asia, The Economist just revealed, using IMF data. (Yes that excludes light weights such as South Korea, Japan, etc.) We have been led by the most incompetent leaders in a very long time. In Europe, and the USA.

It’s a collapse!

Let me repeat. Who are these fools who take themselves for leaders? Since 2000, the GDP manufacturing production of Europe has gone done 75% relative to South-East Asia.

The same problem is obvious with Islam. “Democrats” and their ilk in Europe, tell us Islam is a good thing, we have to respect it. And if we fear it, we have “Islamophobia”, and that’s racist. Whatever they mean, or whatever is meant, by Islam (there are more than 100 Islams, and they want to kill each other… It’s a religious duty). Meanwhile those loud Islamophiles carefully avoid the few evenings it would take to read and debate the Qur’an’s 400 pages leisurely…. And discover it is 100% incompatible with democracy, or, even, human ethology, let alone civilization. Hey, of course: they are comfortable, deep inside their folly.

Just as the “Democratic” elite, in its folly, thought that “breaking the glass ceiling” (of a woman becoming US President) was a more important factor that the fact that, under that woman’s rule, the White Population of the USA started to die more and more… It is folly to suppose most people, most of the time, will put survival below any other consideration. If human beings had minds like that, our species would not exist, let alone would have become Gods on Earth. Yes, I know, a heavy-duty.

Obama’s Fault

November 22, 2016

For eight years, I have been writing that it was Obama’s fault. I had seen Obama go “work” at a “Hedge Fund”, on November 5, 2008 (Did Obama EVER work, let alone think?) You may be elected to be a Saint to fight evil, and, next day, go work for Satan, for all to see.

I have been writing about this for eight lonely years, but now, finally, the Main Stream Thinking is catching up:

Obama Is A Financial Plutocracy Agent. Just Look At The Facts

Obama Is A Financial Plutocracy Agent. Just Look At The Facts

[Obama had also control of the Congress. Or, more exactly, the Democratic Party, truly the Demoncratic Party, had control of Congress. Congress was headed by Nancy Pelosi, a woman who made a colossal fortune from politics, and was head of Congress since 2006. Congress is truly the National Assembly, and passes laws. So Obama and his Demoncrats controlled all, so what did the do? They did what Demons do: they lied. Donald Trump is already demonstrating that a US president with a simple majority can govern (or, at least, govern the EU). Obama had a supermajority.]

Yannis Varoufakis is a university professor in economics who taught in the UK, Australia (where he became a citizen!), Belgium Sweden, and of course, Greece. By 2004, he started to advise the Greek government on how to get out of the crushing debt engineered by the crafty lying plutocrats (Goldman-Sachs, etc.) When the extreme left took control of the Greek government, Varoufakis became the finance minister of Greece. Varoufakis confronted the European Central Bank, the devilish instrument of the obdurate right-wing Merkel and the crooked semi-fascist French President, Sarkozy. Varoufakis won, and saved Greece, in no small part because he went directly to Greek and European public opinion, and shamed the financial fascists to do the decent thing (besides winning a plebisciste).

However, the resentful plutocrats asked for Varoufakis’ head in exchange for giving the far-left (present) Prime Minister of Greece, Alexis Tsipras, was he needed. There is much more on this, and for the better, now that the Trump Revolution is launched in the USA: suddenly everybody is thinking like Varoufakis. Varoufakis first, then Tsipras, then France running deficits in violation of Brussels’ orders, then the Brexit vote, then Trump. Varoufakis was a hero, because, alone against all, having all to lose, but for the glory of being right, he dared. Compare to Obama’s mental frailty. (To put it politely…)

I have made for years, and most recently in: Obama is a (stealth) regressive, not a progressive, the remark that net investment by governments of the G7 is the lowest in at least 60 years.

I called TARP, Transferring Assets To Rich People. Crooked Hillary and the misinforming Obama administration then pretended that TARP had been fully reimbursed. Maybe it was, but what was reimbursed was reimbursed thanks to Quantitative Easing (where the Federal Reserve bought at inflated prices assets of the richest).

Meanwhile Trump is concentrating on interesting change. No more talk about Mexicans, Wall, even Obamacare… And Trump does not “wish” to “prosecute Hillary” as the Clintons “have suffered a lot already in many ways“… “I want to move forward,” Trump said. “I don’t want to move back. I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t.”

Yes, OK, but history is prologue, as the other one said.

Why did I say that Trump presided over Europe already?

The European Commission suddenly wants Eurozone countries to boost spending by 0.5 percent of GDP next year. It’s, at the very least, a belated gesture to counter Trump-style anti-establishment revolts on the continent. Or maybe there is a more sinister explanation: the European leaders in Brussels have suddenly understood that their masters in Washington, the Goldman-Sachs government of Clinton-Obama, have lost (momentary) control. So, suddenly they do what is right.

The European Commission’s wishful proposal is an acknowledgment that Eurozone spending restraints don’t work for the European continent as a whole (the UK engaged in massive deficit spending around 5%, year after year, while doing ultra massive immigration of the order of .5% of the population, year after year; that brought a boom, except for little Englanders, who got even at the voting booths…)

To make a sustainable difference, however, wealthy countries (mostly Germany) would have to help struggling ones.

Rules that require the 18 countries of the Eurozone to limit deficits make overall policy way too tight. The Eurozone’s combined budget deficit should be just 1.6 percent of GDP next year, even though unemployment remains above 10 percent. Lack of transfers exacerbates the divergence between the member states. Countries like Italy, where youth unemployment is nearly 40 percent, are forced to keep skimping on investment… to the point that Italy cannot even have a sustainable economy (crucial repairs are not done, from antique monuments to recently ravaged earthquake zones). Meanwhile wealthy Germany is still bathing in absurd surpluses, which, instead of being directed at helping to make plenty of little Germans, serve in part to shelter migrants (just because Germanydid not join the France, yet, in re-establishing a Republics in Syria and all over Africa…)

Whatever happens next, don’t forget it was all Obama’s fault. Or the fault of those who pulled his strings (and are now scrambling to pull Trump’s!) Next a more interesting subject: can we have, as NASA claims, propulsion without fuel? Classical Physics says that  question is insane. But conventional wisdom also says Obama did great, and is a friend of the small fry.

Obama goes around, suggesting he will play a sort of philosophical role after his presidency. Assuredly an ambitious goal for a puppet of financial vultures. Well, real philosophers are introspection experts. Since when do puppets acquire introspection? That, surely, would be new physics.
