is what the New York Times article (by Elisabeth Bumiller
15, 1997) titled, ‘The Brothers Emanuel’ reported about
the war mongering pro apartheid Zionist Rahm Emanuel, who is Barack
Obama’s choice for White House Chief of Staff. Americans and the world should be truly alarmed.
fact that Barack Obama has selected Rahm Emanuel for White House
Chief of Staff is a clear signal as to Obama’s actual hawkish
and war like intentions; and though this choice comes as no surprise
to those who did not drink the Obama corporate media Kool-Aid,
it should serve as an urgent wake up call to what real leftists
and so called progressives that remain in this nation. The installment
of Barack Obama as president of the U.S. Empire will mean enormous
and intensified political repression and subterfuge internally;
and ongoing wars externally.
that the corporate media has served in the despicable role of
ensuring that Obama is the next face of U.S. Empire, it unabashedly
is in the process of attempting to prepare the U.S. citizenry
and the world for further military build up and conflict under
the Obama regime. A recent example of this can be found in the
November 16, 2008, TIME article (by Mark Thompson) titled,
‘Why Obama Will Continue Star Wars’ The continuation of
the Star Wars so-called defense system is precisely what
the corporate / military elite of the U.S. Empire want, despite
the fact that it is unnecessary, ineffective, incredibly expensive
and of course unduly and deliberately provocative - particularly
as relates to Russia and other European nations.
column after column this writer has attempted to alert readers
to who and what Barack Obama really is and what this means
for this nation and the world. In short order the ‘chickens will
[ultimately] come home to roost,’ meaning that hopefully many
more people will have gotten over their corporate-media
induced, Barack Obama Kool-Aid stupor. The dangers of remaining
in the stupor are nothing short of catastrophic.
conscious and justice & peace loving people have but one viable
alternative: WE MUST ORGANIZE! We must do our utmost to urge people
to be vigilant. We must constantly highlight the political
capitalist systemic contradictions and the corporate give-aways
of the Obama/Biden regime. Economic exploitation, disparity, and
racism will in fact increase. We must prepare for the inevitable
increased political repression against the people of this nation,
clearly understanding that the very subterfuge of the corporate
/ military elite, and its hand maiden - the corporate media, is
in fact what brought Barack Obama to power as the face of U.S.
times are perilous. Vigilance and organization of and between
Black, Brown, White, Red, and Yellow peoples must be the order
of the day. Have no illusions as to what is ahead in the U.S.
Empire and what is at stake.
