    Barack Obama’s presence in the White House is bad for Black people’s mental health. Even as the African American economic condition deteriorates by the day, Blacks perceive a world in which their prospects are improving. Something did change for the better for Black people in 2009. The problem is, it only happened in their minds.
     Living a Black Fantasy: The Obama Delirium Effect
    A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford
    Majorities of African Americans told Pew pollsters Blacks were better off in 2009 than five years before, when by all economic measurements the opposite was true.”
    There is a world of perception and a world of reality. There is also another realm, a domain of willed fiction that is impervious to reality and treats facts like enemies. It is the Delusion Zone and, judging by the results of a recent Pew Research Center survey, large majorities of African Americans have been trapped there for at least the year since Barack Obama took up residence in the White House.
    Life in the Delusion Zone is animated by the purest magic, a place where catastrophe is instantaneously transformed into its opposite. Examine an item from the real world Washington Post of January 15, whose headline screams, “U.S. unemployment rate for blacks projected to hit 25-year high.” Contrast that with the Pew findings released the same week, which concluded that “blacks' assessments about the state of black progress in America have improved more dramatically than at any time in the last quarter century.”
    The judgments of a nationally representative sampling of 812 blacks can't be wrong, can they? Yes, they can. Obamamania appears to destroy brain cells and disable both short- and long-term memory.
    Consider that the proportion of African Americans that say Blacks are “better off than five years ago” has nearly doubled since 2007, from 20 percent to 39 percent. What actually happened in the interim between 2007 and 2009? The negative assessment of the Black condition in 2007 compared to five years before, makes sense. Black unemployment in 2002 stood at 11 percent. By 2007, Black unemployment had dropped to 8.3 percent, significantly better than at the height of the Bush first term recession five years before. However, by 2007 the housing foreclosure crisis was casting a dark gloom over Black America, and December 2007 would retroactively be declared the first month of the Great Recession. It was, therefore, rational that only one in five Blacks would rate African Americans as better off in 2007 than in 2002.
    Obamamania appears to destroy brain cells and disable both short- and long-term memory.”
    The latest Pew poll, conducted mostly in November of 2009, showed twice as many respondents felt Blacks were better off than five years earlier, in 2004. This, despite the fact that Black joblessness stood officially at 15.6 percent in November 2009, and heading higher, compared to 8.7 percent in November 2004. In five years, Black unemployment had nearly doubled, and the housing foreclosure crisis had ravaged Black neighborhoods, with no let up in sight. Any rational five-year assessment offered in November of 2009 would have been as gloomy as the numbers.But Black folks weren’t being rational. Thirty-nine percent of them – nearly twice as many as in 2007 – told Pew pollsters Blacks were better off in 2009 than five years before, when by all economic measurements the opposite was true.
    What happened between 2007 and 2009, besides the worst recession since the Great Depression, with Black unemployment projected to hit 17.2 percent by the third quarter of 2010? Obama happened.
    Any rational five-year assessment offered in November of 2009 would have been as gloomy as the numbers.”
    Obama-induced chemical imbalances messed up Black people’s minds regarding the gap between Black and white incomes. Asked if the racial gap had grown smaller in the last ten years, 56 percent said “yes” in 2009, compared to 41 percent in 2007. In fact, the racial wage gap had grown significantly. In 2000, Black households made 64.8 cents for every dollar made by whites. By 2008 Black households had slipped three cents, to 61.8 cents on the white dollar – approximately the same size gap as existed in 1989 and 1979. Blacks are worse off, income-wise, than ten years ago, and except for a brief uptick in Black household income during the Clinton bubble-boom of the Nineties, the Black-white earnings gap has remained virtually unchanged for the past 30 years.
    ObamaL'aid is a mind-altering substance, a hallucinogen. It makes Black people see progress when they are actually facing disaster. Obama-on-the-brain also behaves like an opiate, blocking out pain. African Americans’ ability to apprehend political and economic danger is compromised by Obama-induced delusion, while the opiate effect prevents Blacks from knowing where and how badly they have been hurt. That’s a fatal combination.

    NOT SO GREAT EXPECTATIONS

    Ever since I admitted that I wouldn't (and didn't by the way) vote for Barack Obama or any other black politicians cut from the same cloth, i have become somewhat of a pariah to many of my Obama-worshipping associates (of all colors). In this post I will focus upon the problem i have with the ones who identify as Black. I soured on Mr. Obama early in his run to the White House during which in both word and deed, he let me, and anyone who was actually paying attention to him instead of being lulled by his charisma, know that he was nothing more than another loyal, centrist Democrat who was shamelessly and cynically using the hopes and aspirations of blacks in order to collect their votes. i knew even then that Mr. Obama would be really bad news for those who helped to put him in office. I hoped that his black supporters would eventually recoil in anger over his obvious indifference and his constant betrayals, and either call in their markers or else, put him in check.

    Since then, numerous conversations with black folk have dispelled that notion. Black people in general, no matter what their level of education or wealth remain blindly loyal to this man. When i go over the dismal record of his statements and actions and inactions when it comes to the well-being of black people in the United states and elsewhere in spite of the fact that  he now holds the top office of the most powerful nation-state on the planet, black people repeatedly assure me that they  DID NOT expect him to use his power to do anything for them or their interests.

    They are just very proud and happy to see a black/biracial person shelling out corporate welfare checks to banksters, giving his asinine "I love war speech" while receiving a peace prize, sanctioning extra judicial killings, killing Muslim non-combatants all over the world, kowtowing to Israel and its lobby, kissing the asses of the Clintons (and the teabaggers), etc. When I point out that President Obama is just like his white predecessors, his black apologists tell me that he "has to be" in order to be president. I then ask them, it that is the case, then what was the point of electing him to office? Why be in politics at all if your interests are forever irrelevant? Because he is "change" they say. Chump change I say. 

    It's not Obummer's Fault??? Huh.

    Freeze Frame: Flopsweat and Farce in the Hollow Halls of Power


    Written by Chris Floyd   

    Wednesday, 27 January 2010 00:56

    Yet another day, yet another bout of liberal handwringing over yet another jilting by Barack Obama. This time, their hero has let them down with his planned freeze on "discretionary" spending. (Which doesn't include funding for the war machine and the security organs, of course; as always, that's "imperative" spending – we are allowed no "discretion" whatsoever when it comes to gorging our fat cats on blood money and fear-profiteering.)

    Tuesday morning saw no less than five major pieces on Salon.com decrying Obama's "panic," his unworkable "gimmick" which will "doom the economic recovery," his "farce" in repeating Franklin Roosevelt's 1937 mistake of cutting spending too soon and prolonging the Great Depression, and Obama's "cynicism" in sending out his message-massagers to liberal outlets to assure the (dwindling) faithful that he's not really going to cut any worthy programs – assertions that Republican will eagerly seize upon, and which will boomerang as rank betrayals of his political base when they turn out to be false.

    One can hardly take issue with the thrust of the Salon pieces (and others like them across the progressiverse): Obama's spending "freeze" is a disastrous, cynical farce whose only real result will be an increase of suffering and hardship for the most vulnerable in our society. It will certainly produce no real budget savings, given the voracious, ever-widening maw of the militarist apparatus. Obama claims his freeze on spending that might actually enhance the quality of life of the American people will "save" $250 billion over three years. But where will this money go? Straight into that militarist maw, which devours that amount of cash every few weeks, and is always demanding – and receiving – more, more, and still more.

    The already-chintzy, misdirected "stimulus" spending will indeed grind to a halt, sending multitudes of people who had been temporarily shielded from the worst of the recession crashing headlong into the bitter reality of the economic rapine wrought by our elites. And speaking of that economic rapine, if Obama was really keen on saving $250 billion, perhaps he could have lopped a few hundred billion off the trillions of dollars in bailout baksheesh which his administration has doled out or guaranteed to the financial elite. Or perhaps he could fought for genuine health care reform, with the hundreds of billions that a single-payer plan would have saved, instead of swelling the profits of the insurance and drug conglomerates with public money and captive customers.

    So yes, the spending "freeze" will be the usual bungling wheeze. It will not do what it is ostensibly designed to do ("signal seriousness about cutting the budget deficit"); it will not "foster bipartisanship" in the savage, petty factional infighting that characterizes our ruling establishment (which is actually entirely bipartisan when it comes to the essentials: making war on weak, broken nations, and making money for those already bloated to bursting with money). And yes, it is a panicky move meant to shore up Obama's sagging poll numbers -- and is also a craven sop to the financial elites who were miffed by his talk about "reining in the banks" a few days ago. And it may even be, as one Salon writer noted, a "Sister Souljah" moment, designed to slap down the "left" and show everybody what a big tough centrist hombre he really is.

    But the shocked and injured tone with which this move has been greeted in some quarters seems entirely misplaced. Many of the writers seem to be operating on the assumption -- or under the delusion -- that Obama actually had some kind of political-economic-social agenda that he wanted to enact as president, and that he is now "failing" to enact it, "squandering" his opportunity. There still seems to be a belief that he ran for president because he wanted to do something with all that power.

    But Obama is not "failing"; he is doing exactly what he set out to do: be the president. That's it. That's all he wanted to do. And he's doing it. The panic now emanating from the White House is not that of a man watching a chance to realize his deeply held ideals for a better world slipping away from him; it's just the flopsweat of a guy trying to stay perched on top of the greasy pole for another term. From his earliest days in office, it has been clear that Obama, like Clinton before him, had no real political program to enact; he was happy to do whatever it took to get enough votes to put him into office, while also assuring the real brokers of national power -- Big Money, Big War -- that he was a "safe pair of hands" who would never seriously disturb the blood-smeared operation of their giant sausage grinder.

    The contrast to the Bush Regime is striking. While the front man himself was an empty suit of clothes, the operators at the core of the faction, led by Dick Cheney, had a very definite program they wanted to enact: a vastly accelerated militarism; ever-more rampant corporatism; the "hollowing out" of the state by selling off its public service functions to cronies and sycophants, while undermining and eviscerating its civic functions (its laws, courts, constitution, etc.) with egregious claims of unaccountable authoritarian power. This agenda was clear from the beginning. (See here for the Bushists' militarist blueprint; and here for its continuity in Obama's "safe pair of hands."). And it was followed through with relentless determination, with no quivering about "bipartisanship" with other factions, and with only the scantest regard for polls or public favor. It was a hideous agenda -- but by God, they had one, and they worked it with all their might.

    Obama, on the other hand, stands for nothing; thus nothing he tries to do will stand. He was already hollowed out when he came into office, with a "brand" not an agenda, not a program -- and, as becomes increasingly apparent all the time, not a clue.

    I saw something the other day

    I saw something the other day indicating EEOC claims are skyrocketing. Also, some white bloggers are complaining that Obama's Presidency has silenced the use-to-be erstwhile Black leaders once ardent critics of open, rank racism. How right they are. Delerium and cognitive dissonance are reaching viral stages.Some times html comment form really helpful in managing communication.

    Wake-up Black America It's Time

     
     
     
    We cannot blame President Obama for the ills of Black America anymore that we can justify our community being where it is today, after Dr. King gave his life to move us forward.  Besides, we must remember, he is the president of all America and not just Black America.
     
    Another King Day celebration has come and gone and we began to make plans for next year. During the next year, we will continue our same routine, until we meet again. I don’t know about of you, I am tired of having the same events and programs with little to nothing being accomplished. When will the INSANITY, end. We continue to do the same things, over and over, with expectations of something different occurring. This, my brothers and sisters is the definition of INSANITY. How long must we continue down that pathway?
     
    When will we begin to understand and move on what Dr. King said, about “THE URGENCY OF NOW?” Yes, the DREAM has NOT yet been fully realized. Oh, we can shout about the election of President Barack Obama, we can appreciate being able to live in the Vanilla Suburbs, we can now attend schools with other nationalities without fear, we can sit anywhere on the bus and the list goes on and on. However, we have missed the true essence of what the “I Have A Dream” speech was all about.
     
    The premise of the speech was not originally about his dream. The dream portion can when Mahalia Jackson reminded him to tell about his DREAM. His speech was about education, economics and empowerment of our community. All three today, in 2010, have not come to our community. So, as we celebrate the election of our first black president, and other accomplishments, still Negros/Blacks are not free. Many will deny what I am saying and even say that I am hating on Dr. King. However, to the contrary, I give honor and great respect to him. However, we, as a people, cannot rest, nor become complacent or apathetic, thinking that the struggle is over. The plight of our community is even more URGENT than ever and we must make opportunities happen NOW.  The enemy then was fearful and exerted overt racism. However, today we face an enemy that is angrier, more fearful and exercises covert racism.
     
    Black America won’t be free until our people have a quality education and the dropout rate is significantly reduced from greater than fifty percent. Our community is being destroyed because of a lack of knowledge. (Hos. 4:6)   Black America won’t be free, until we have WEALTH in our community-- with banks, black owned businesses, more homeowners and other resources of our own. Black America won’t be free, until we unite, become educated, build an economic base and then empower the masses. This is what Dr. King was talking and dreamed the day would come forth. He knew that only when these things were achieved, could Black America “carve a tunnel of hope out of the mountain of despair.”

    Let us remember and even celebrate THE DREAM, however, we cannot continue celebrating FOREVER. Whether dreaming while sleeping or even daydreaming, in both instances, you are not in touch with reality. Thus, you are stagnant and unproductive.  In Joshua chapter one, God told Joshua, “Moses my servant is dead; NOW therefore arise, go over the Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even the children of Israel.” I believe that God is saying the same to us. It is time for us to stop celebrating the life of Dr. King and his Dream, as we do, and focus on THE VISION, God had for MANKIND (us INCLUDED) from the beginning. It is time for us to go over or JORDAN RIVER, which represents all the obstacles (racism, ignorance, selfishness and greed), that has restricted us from going into the promise land. Yes, God has a PROMISE LAND for US, but just like the Israelites had to fight all the Hittites, the Amalekites, the Amorites, etc., we must do the same. God will not renege on His promises, nor is He coming down here and do things for us. Therefore, our destiny rest in our hands and is waiting on US.
     
    Finally, in the book of Joel 2:28 says, “And it will come to pass afterward, that I pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.  I really believe that Dr. King (and our parents/grandparents) represents the old men, with the DREAMS; His children (the next generation), the Baby boomer generation represents the young men (and women) , who from the dream presented, formulates the VISION. It is up to US (those in my generation) to create the vision, make it plain so our KIDS (the third generation) can run with it. (Habakkuk 2:2-3)   We have to build upon the foundation of the DREAM, produce a VISION (an educated, economically sound, empowered and self-sufficient community) that can be seen clearly. Proverbs 13:22a says, “A prudent (good) man leaveth an inheritance for his children’s children (three generations).” Then, our sons and daughters can build upon the VISION, and prophesy it to the succeeding generations, creating a LEGACY. When these three generations fulfill their responsibilities, NOT only will the DREAM of Dr. King, but more important than that, the VISION of God, for us, will be realized. It’s all in the Word of God; we must read it, have the FAITH (the audacity to risk everything in pursuit of something you cannot prove) to believe it and then move to achieve it.

    Stick a fork in it, my friends fantasy is coming to fruition

    http://www.theatlanticwire.com/opinions/view/opinion/Liberals-Agree-Obam...
     
    Just as most of us anticipated, expect the "Liberal President," the "Socialist" according to the demented Tea Baggers, to move FURTHER to the right in his State of the Union Address.
     
    Intro paragraph:
     
    "President Obama plans to call for a three-year spending freeze on most domestic programs in the federal budget. The freeze, which would not affect security or defense, is designed to signal the White House's seriousness about reducing the deficit, a chief concern of budget-minded conservatives. As we've covered, the White House is seeking a more populist tone and a greater focus on the 2010 elections.

    Liberals are denouncing the spending freeze across blogs and airwaves. Many believe the move is all about politics, not policy. And the politics, many say, are just as clumsy as the policy. Even David Brooks insists the idea is "insane."
     
    Poor wittle ol Baawock Obummer is in over his head.  Stick a fork in it,  Ladies and Gents, he's well on his way to a failed presidency, in record time.  He'll make Dimocrats get misty eyed about ol Jimme Caa tah.   The bankster bailout is his albatross, his Sisyphean struggle, no matter how much he "intones" about populism or fakes anger, no matter how much he pushes the rock up the hill, it'll come tumbling right back down.  He's spent both political and fiscal capital on the banksters, and now promises the "middle class" tax cuts while the working poor get the shaft.  Not even the silver-tongued wonderboy can lie himself about of this one.  The Seniors are going to bolt on his ass any day now.  Remember, the freeze won't affect the military/industrial "complex."  How do you "adopt a more populist tone" by cutting entitlements to seniors and the poor?"   Apparently, you must be a f***king Haa vud grad to come up with this ploy?
     
    Such is the lot of a preening narcissist and centrist psychopath who refuses to acknowledge that great presidents don't manage systems, they run shit and kick ass and take names.   Not having any compass or principles is what get this clown in a pickle, not having any compass or principles is what will assure a historically failed presidency.  Months ago I thought a Palin presidency was not realistic, that a Romney or similar frat boy would work.  I still lay the odds as less than 50%, but I'll be damned if Obummer hasn't increased the prospects of this nightmare.  Watch out folks.  Watch the Rethugs (and some "centrist" Dems also) run on racial profiling (under the rubric of "security"), further reductions in the social safety net, imprisonment and detention for Blacks and gays, and state sponsored terrorism, the US variety that is, and WIN elections.  The facist state is coming into full bloom. 
     
    But as for Obummer and the Dummocrats, stick a fork in it.  He's one and done and they are a resounding failure, and fading Party.  The irony is that "libs" will bolt to the right just to show their enmity.  GOP "populism" will merge with their self-interests to "leave my paycheck alone."  And to an extent, you can't blame them, because Obummer and the Dems aim to tax the shit out of them (and us) while insuring the war machine goes on. 
     
    p.s.  I haven't heard jack shit from Obamites since the nomination.  Where are you simple-minded degenerates, aren't you going to defend "the one who is heaven sent?"  LOL  Little did you know that the "heaven sent" one would bring pure hell to your door steps?  "Progressives for Obama" stfu.
     
     

    A scary thought or a call to "arms"

    No, I'm not talking guns and bullets, the crackers would wipe us out in a violent struggle.  I'm talking about the fact that I URGE EVERYONE to not just read articles in the MSM w/o reading the reader's comments.  Last nite I was surfing and saw "Time Magazine" an Imperial Organ if there ever was one, give it's usual advice on what Obama should do, I didn't read it, because we all can guess that their advice is:  Move further to the Right (what they now call the center).  A related piece asked reader's, "what would you tell Obama" so I skipped to the reader's comments.  One commentator wrote,  forget the pc talk, "what Obama needs to do is cater to whites."  Well....shit...I thought that's what the sellout has been doing?  Am I confused, am I suffering "delerium?"  Or is it that the crackers are unabashed and resolved to come out of their bag?
     
    We are going to see real soon just how bankrupt and fraudulent "liberals" are.  Sure, many are RIGHTFULLY ANGRY at the Obama sellout, but are blinded by White Privilege such that they perceive Obama's sellout as giving clout to THEIR OWN GREIVANCES.  They could give a shit that Black Unemployment is projected to hit a 25 year old, or that EEOC claims have skyrocketed as they solidify their "employment networking" efforts to hire friend not foe.
     
    As the coming "tax revolt" reaches steam, the theme from Whites (and some middle class Blacks, ect) will be, " I got mine, what about you?"  Shit's gonna get uglier and uglier tee vee fans, as "liberalism" get's obscured and subjugated to White Privilege, and good ol American "individualism" will rule as resources become scarcer.  Welcome to the decade of social disintegration and anomie.
     
    Black people better get their shit together real soon.  Because, as one representative commentator said, "Obama should cater to Whites."  And that's exactly what he will continue to do with his "Middle Class Tax Cuts" and all.  Obama can give a shit about the plight of Black Folks, when are Black folks going to give a shit about Obama?  And don't expect a "handout" leg up, or "pound" from the growing crowd of "liberals," those deluded ones who think their vote for Obama absolved centuries of racism and white privilege, the one's who cry:  "My parents didn't own slaves, I am not a racist, I voted for Obama, but f***k putting more money into the social safety net if it's gonna raise my taxes.  I got mine, what about you? "
     
    I love my p-t job, I get paid to sit on my ass and kick it with drunk college students and bus drivers.  I conduct anthropological studies while clocking free money.  This weekend the White male bus driver and I discussed universal health care.  His first comment was, "I do have a problem with drug users and deadbeats getting free health care, why should I cover them?"  I countered that you are already paying for them via emergency and urgent care usage, you just don't know it.  After all, wtf do you expect sick people to do, stay home and die?  (I didn't use that exact verbage).
     
    What is STRIKING is that as we bonded and chatted the rest of the evening he described his family's dysfunctions, told me about how 2 of his 3 adult kids were on drugs and now recovering, about his son incurring a felony conviction,  and once spending 30 days in jail and "changing his life," about having to pick up his daughter who is divorced, has 5  children by two fathers who are absent from their lives, because she has no driver's license to bring them over to his house for a birthday celebration.  He said he has interracial grandchildren and voted for Obama, btw.
     
    My point is... well.. if I have to spell it out for you, you'll never get it.  Suffice it to say that out of goodwill and compassion I didn't bother to go back to his original comment about universal health care.  Add to this state of affairs, the reality that the Democratic Party is going to move further and further to the right and with the blessing of it's white "working class" and "liberals" tell Black people to go to hell.  Is that a scary thought or a wakeup call?
     
    Amerikka is a reactionary, regressive country, there is no true liberalism and that reality will come to fruition by November 2010.
     
    More and more of these crackers are talking about openly about racial profiling, Sen Ensign the latest.  (As if they are not already doing it). But they want to legally sanction raicsm, just as Bush and Obama have now legally sanctioned torture and state terror, with the blessing of BOTH white conservatives and "liberals."  Again, read the comments section, not just the article.
     
    I once had a work mate and frat brother who remarked that it might not be so bad if Black folk woke up one day and there were no entitlement programs, no social safety net...The upshot is that we would be compelled to become more self-reliant.  Little did he know he just might get his wish in his lifetime.

    That Obama-juana must be some powerful stuff...

    Black people need to come down off of that high now:

    Mobilize Now to Oust Bernanke as Fed Chair

    By Webster G. Tarpley

    Once Bernanke has been defeated, it will be time to secure the ouster of Treasury Secretary Geithner, the former head of the New York Fed and currently the most visible member of the entire Obama cabinet.

    In the aftermath of the Massachusetts Senate vote last Tuesday, we now have a concrete fighting chance to block the reappointment of Wall Street puppet Ben Bernanke as the chairman of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors by preventing his Senate confirmation next week. This afternoon, Bernanke’s support was eroding hour by hour. The defections from the Bernanke camp feature Democratic senators who are up for reelection this coming November. They have read the tea leaves from Massachusetts, and they know the pitchforks are out, so their response is a mad rush to acquire economic populist and anti-Wall Street cover. The obvious way to do this is to turn against Bernanke and defeat him in the upcoming confirmation vote. Leading the charge late today were Senator Barbara Boxer of California and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, both endangered Democrats. GOP Senator Corker of Tennessee is now waffling about whether or not he will support Bernanke. The pressure is building on self-styled Democratic economic populists like Sherrod Brown of Ohio to prove that they are worth something. What will Senator-elect Scott Brown do? If he votes for Bernanke, he will have betrayed his voters in less than a week, and will not survive his own re-election campaign in 3 years. Democratic majority leader Harry Reid, succumbing to overwhelming pressure from the Obama White House, announced late this afternoon that he will fall on his sword for Helicopter Ben, but this self-destructive pledge may not survive a weekend in Nevada, where the economic populist pitchforks are as finely honed as anywhere. It is therefore time for all responsible citizens and all persons of good will to mobilize in the days ahead to secure the defeat of Bernanke. Such an event would symbolize the turn of the tide against Wall Street in the struggle to decide who will pay for the current depression — the people or the bankers and hedge fund hyenas.


    We stress that this is a battle which can be won. Two senators, Bunning of Kentucky and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, have placed holds on the Bernanke nomination. This means that a supermajority of 60 votes will be required to bring Helicopter Ben’s nomination to the Senate floor. As of now, no one can know whether these votes will be forthcoming. Republicans have little reason to favor Bernanke over their own careers. The Obama White House, despite its most recent efforts to re-create a populist persona for the chief executive, is foolishly supporting Bernanke — a move which undermines all other economic populist posturing Obama might engage in. Individual Democrats, especially those facing the hour of truth in November, know very well how much Bernanke and his Federal Reserve elitists are hated by Americans. For the moment, this game is therefore out of control and highly vulnerable to the application of mass-based political pressure. If Bernanke can be defeated, the Wall Street-Federal Reserve lockstep will be momentarily broken, and the path to auditing the Fed and, more importantly, nationalizing it as a bureau of the Treasury will be wide open.

    Late this afternoon, pro-financier spokesmen on Bloomberg and CNBC were talking about a scenario in which Bernanke would remain no matter what as chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee, the unconstitutional body which sets interest rates in accordance with the wishes of the privately owned Federal Reserve districts, above all the New York one. In this scenario, Donald Kohn, the current Fed Vice Chairman, would take Bernanke’s place as the Chairman of the Board of Governors. Kohn, it will be remembered, is just as odious as Bernanke. About a year ago, Kohn’s impudence, arrogance and elitism were highlighted during a Senate hearing when he indignantly refused to reveal the names of the AIG derivatives counterparties who were receiving some $70 billion of US taxpayer money in return for their worthless and toxic financial derivatives. If Bernanke and Kohn should attempts to maintain their power over the Federal Reserve, meaning in practice short-term interest rates in this country, they will create laboratory conditions for a massive economic populist revolt which could well lead to the seizure and nationalization of the Federal Reserve as a bureau of the US Treasury and a public utility to provide 0% credit for production in the interests of the American people. That would put an end to almost a century of financial insurrection by the Wall Street financiers and their puppets against the Constitution — a blatant illegality which goes back to the days of Woodrow Wilson.

    All opponents of the illegal, unconstitutional, and failed Federal Reserve system must now realize that this is the hour of action. It is time for every serious intelligent person to send two e-mails and place two phone calls to the Washington and local offices of their senators demanding that they stop Bernanke. Obama should also be warned that Bernanke is an insult to the American people. Those who have been complaining about the Fed for decades now have a real chance to do something about it. These chances are very rare, but this is the best one in many, many decades. Even Paul Adolph Volcker, who had been responsible for an obscene 22% prime rate three decades ago, had an easier time getting reconfirmed than Bernanke. Once Bernanke has been defeated, it will be time to secure the ouster of Treasury Secretary Geithner, the former head of the New York Fed and currently the most visible member of the entire Obama cabinet. The basic outlines of a criminal indictment for Geithner on tax fraud and securities fraud can be culled from virtually any daily newspaper. Geithner ought to be accompanied on his trip home by White House economic czar Larry Summers, the woman-hating former president of Harvard who managed to destroy about a third of the Harvard endowment as a result of his fanatical devotion to the riskiest of financial derivatives. This and more will be within our reach if Bernanke can be checkmated over the next week or two.

    Scandal: Leading International Banker/Economist, Albert Edwards Alleges that Central Banks in England and America were Complicit In Robbing The Middle Classes Blind!

    http://www.zerohedge.com/article/scandal-albert-edwards-alleges-central-...

    Don't go f***king with my government check

    This is the hew and cry I heard from the elderly folks I socialized and dined with during the past Holidays.  No love for Obummer if he cuts Medicaid, Medicare, and/or Social Security, or Disability.  As one of them put, Obummer apparently has no clue regarding the power of the senior vote.
     
    But, as I assured this learned group, Obummer don't give a f***k what you think (I said it more eloquently), don't like him, prove it.  Because Obummer is hell bent on shrinking Medicare/Medicaid.  So suck it and stop putting a damn halo over his head; crying the blues about "he can't do all he wants to,"  booo, hoo, hoo. 
     
    http://www.wsws.org/articles/2010/jan2010/budg-j21.shtml
    Excerpt:
    Obama administration officials and Democratic congressional leaders reached agreement Tuesday on the establishment of a bipartisan commission that would put recommendations for drastic budget cuts to a vote in Congress before the end of 2010. The commission would have unprecedented legal authority to propose changes in both the tax code and major entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, with Congress required to hold an up-or-down vote on its recommendations."
     
    I said it once and I'll keep repeating it.  When Obummer starts f***king with the little money that seniors get older Black folk might launch their own Tea Party movement, hell they might even organize a march on Washington.  It's been written that among reasons for Coakley's debacle in Mass. was the citizen's of that state experience with Mass. version of Obamacare.  At some point in time, rhetoric meets reality.
     
    It has to be messed up (being Obummer) knowing that you're f***ked with the bankster bailout, that it will both handcuff and define your political future.  This is the reason, among others, for Obummer's graying temples.  When Obummer was golfing with the big wigs, Rome was burning.  When he was vacationing in Hawaii, Rome was burning. When he was bailing out Wall St. and creating institutions TOO BIGGER THAN EVER TO FAIL, Rome was burning. 
     
    When he starts f**king with medical benefit entitlements, he won't be making the cover of Essence and Ebony anymore, and grandma might just take down his picture from the living room.
     
    The only thing that comes close to the therapy of overt racism, is the therapy of overt "brokeness."  Did Obummer truly matriculate to Haa vud, or was he an "affirmative action baby?"  Because right now he's acting like he's a community college grad, a non-scholarship one at that.  LOL
     
    p.s.  @falsedelic, thanks for the compliment... where u been?

    Hussien oBOMBa is not above snatchin old folks pensions either

    http://whiskeyandgunpowder.com/prepare-now-to-escape-obamas-retirement-t...

    "As the United States moves into a new decade of military overreach abroad and national bankruptcy at home, Washington is in a desperate search for more revenue and a solution to the future financing of the trillions in national debt obligations currently held by foreign central banks and investors. Economists, politicians and smart investors know the dollar’s days as the world reserve currency are numbered as is our ability to finance the national debt."

    "Although the historical government solution to unsustainable government debt loads has always been the destruction of the debts by currency depreciation and eventual hyperinflation, there is always an intermediate step used to buy more time for the politicians in power. This action, usually sidestepped and downplayed by the establishment historians paid to hide the real facts of history is wealth confiscation. Napoleon had it right when he stated, “History is a state of lies agreed upon.”

    "The largest source of liquid private wealth remaining in the United States are the $15 trillion in private retirement funds and the ultimate ownership, control and future of these funds have already been compromised and exchanged for the favorable tax treatment of private retirement plans. Congress writes the laws, so they can tax, penalize, hold your funds hostage and although they’d never use the word, “confiscate” your assets at their discretion."

    "The retirement trap I’m writing about is only a proposal at the present time and since it may well begin in the latter years of the Obama Administration assuming the Democrats can somehow maintain their majorities in Congress, I’m calling it the “Obama Retirement Trap”. But make no mistake, the government's need for current revenue and their frenzied search for a short-term fix to fund a backstop of liquidity to buy future government debt obligations when no credible investors will buy them is an unspoken quest of both political parties. The establishments of both political parties will do anything to stay in power and this will include raiding and pillaging your retirement funds."

    Remember, they also withheld peoples tax returns in California. So snatchin people's retirement funds?! I wouldn't put it pass em...

    I second this emotion

    N*gg**as, WAKE YOUR DUMB BLACK ASSES UP, that's 40% of the reason I read BAR.
    The other 60% is for commentary by the Enlightened Cynic
    peace

    Obama Delerium also affects reading comprehension

    Want an example?  Check out these three articles:
    1. Unemployment rate for Blacks projected to reach 25 year high.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/14/AR201001...
    Excerpt:
     
    "Blacks, Hispanics and men have suffered the most mainly because they have been disproportionately employed in sectors hardest hit in the recession -- manufacturing and construction. For instance, the unemployment rate for blacks is expected to reach 27 percent in Michigan, which has been shedding auto industry jobs. Other states with jobless rates above 20 percent for blacks are Alabama, Illinois, Ohio and South Carolina."
     
    2.  Polling on whether or not Obama has improved race relations:
     
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/12/AR201001...
    Excerpt:
    "Since taking office, Obama has mostly declined to engage in the racial analyses that have come with his historic presidency. With the nation dealing with double-digit unemployment rates and the threat of global terrorism, White House aides view race as little more than a diversion."

     
    "Obama basically is a bargainer and appeals to whites by communicating to them that he will not see them as racist," said Shelby Steele, a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. "Someone such as Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson . . . would be off-putting to whites. Obama sort of cleanses himself of that. And whites are grateful."
     
     
    http://www.usnews.com/blogs/erbe/2010/01/19/americans-now-doubt-obama-pr...
    Now comes news of a poll showing that Americans believe President Obama's historic, color-barrier-breaking presidency has done less to improve race relations than they had hoped when he took office one year ago. This is especially true among African-Americans.
     
    "While the sense of a positive change has faded across racial lines, the biggest drop has occurred among blacks. As he took office a year ago, 58 percent of Americans said Obama's presidency had helped race relations; fewer today, 41 percent say so. It's fallen by 15 points among whites--but more steeply, by 24 points, among blacks."
     
    Glen, there is no better antidote to delerium than a healthy dose of racism.  Dem crackers came out of the woodworks once the non-Black Black men sailed into office. Even the Black apologists and 'Laid drinkers can't totally avoid reality.  Getting called a "N" and not finding a job is therapuetic.  (Last weekend on my P-T gig a little college cracker told his buddies on the "drunk bus" 'I don't want to go to some n**gg* bar.'  He then preceded to explain his choice of college by saying, "(Thats) 40% of the reasons I came here.  Never mind that Iowa is only 3% Black any damn way, or the irony that he matriculated to one of the "Blackest SMSAs in the state).   See, crackers are affected by reading comprehension too.
     
    I saw something the other day indicating EEOC claims are skyrocketing.   Also, some white bloggers are complaining that Obama's Presidency has silenced the use-to-be erstwhile Black leaders once ardent critics of open, rank racism.  How right they are.   Delerium and cognitive dissonance are reaching viral stages.
     
    But the intense, never-ending assault of the crackers is indeed therapuetic.  Hats off to all you avowed (and closeted) racists out there.  You've demonstrated that Black Nationalism and Negritude will always have a place in Exceptional America.  You make "leftist militants" like me, ever more relevant.
     
    Poor ol Barack Obama has the bankster bailout as an albatros, he's painted him (and US) into a corner.  The upset in Mass. might have spoiled his stealth attack on Medicare and Medicaid, putting the 'imperative" to balance the budget in a more problematic state.  But don't you worry, the poll numbers will dip even more by the end of 2010, when the chickenshit Obama and the Dimocrats "panic" and "move even more to the (right) center.
     
    Reading comprehension problems are epidemic Glen, I could have sworn you and countless others warned against the Dummocrats running elections to the left and governing from the (right) center?  Poor ol Barack "Puppet" Obama just doesn't get it.
     
    N*gg**as, WAKE YOUR DUMB BLACK ASSES UP, that's 40% of the reason I read BAR.
     
    p.s.  If you want a real treat, read, if available, some of the "comments" to the articles and if you don't suffer comprehension problems, you'll find the crackers coming out of their bag.  Post-Racial my ass.   Whitey ain't feeling your pain no more thanks to the "transformative" President.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     

    Thanks for this read mate.

    Thanks for this read mate. Well, this is my first visit to your blog! But I admire the precious time and effort you put into it, especially into interesting articles you share here!

    Coming out of the closet, bigots, not gays

    Obama is a clear and present danger to all people of African descent, all darker or brown people period.  He vouches for racism while negating it's real effect on persons of color.  He's the biggest pussy I've seen in sometime.  I recall saying many times over the last year that the man is just weak, because, among other reasons, he has no principles, the only thing he's principled about and committed to is rewriting historical precedents concerning racism in America, giving aid and comfort to the bigots.  And the Black sheeple go along, knowing this shit is harmful, because they don't want to undermine "the (second) Black President," who like the "first one" didn't give a shit about undermining them.  I pity the fool.
     
    Chris Floyd touches on how Obama and the Dummocrats give aid and comfort to the red-neck and effete bigots both, is in his usual lucid fashion, with an essay entitled:
     
    Critical Mass: Dem Agenda Opens Right-Wing Doors
     
    What we see in technicolor is what we use to think behind closed doors, or better put, what some "white liberals" use to think behind close doors, and that is "Bigots R Us."  This is why one has to read the comments section to a provocative or controversial topic on race, to see the rationalizations of white privilege, the hidden racial animus even amongst so-called "liberals."  The WaPo piece on Black employment projected to hit a 25 yr. high is emblamatic.  Some of them crackers are out and out supremacists, with their Haa vud educations and liberal patina.  But don't tell them that Beverly, egads, they'd be offended, and Lord knows offending white folks is a major sin, just ask Obummer.  LOL
     
    As far as Massachusetts being liberal..... kiss my ass.  The images of Roxbury and busing remain singed into my mind, the reason why most African Americans hated the Celtics (pre KG) is well known.  Alexander Cockburn does his usual good stuff in explaining the "myth of Mass as a liberal state" in citing that the majority of the voters there are "independents," i.e.  closet racists who vote their self interest depending upon who's serving it the most.
     
    http://www.counterpunch.org/cockburn01202010.html
    "A richly deserved humiliation."
    Excerpt:
    "Yesterday it came in Massachusetts, often categorized as the most liberal in the union. This is entirely untrue. It's a disgusting sinkhole of racism and vulgar prejudice, as five minutes in any taxi in the state, listening to Talk Radio or reading the local newspaper, will attest.
     
    Brown's achievement is not novel. His type of Republican has been elected governor in Massachusetts three or four times in the last 18 years by the real "majority party" --which is the "unenrolled" independents who are 1 and 1/2 times the size of Democrats in number among registered voters and tower over the Republicans of whom less than 12 per cent are registered as such."

    Well Cynic: I always enjoy your comments probably  with some degree of narcissism because I´ve agreed with your take on short and long term issues about 99% of the time.  Again, it´s a sweep.  Everything about Obama and White liberals that at this point truly frighten me because President Martinelli helped into office over the more modern and appropriate Balbina Herrera with the help of David Axelrod and Eric Holder has allowed Obama to recolonize  Panamá.  The IRS and DOJ are armed to the teeth and have secret offices in non-descript buildings all over the capital, Colón, Veraguas, Los Santos and Davíd. 
    The FBI is now in charge of each city and town´s metropolitan police force and has militarized each one,effectively  creating a new UNCONSTITUTIONAL ARMY.  The former president, Martin Torrijos, (my favorite president of every place I´ve lived or visited, during any period of time, and son of General Omar Torrijos, the US DIRTY WAR assassination victim who founded our PRD (Partido Revolucionario Democrático), the first left-wing, peoples´party in Panama´s history and the man who made the first treaty with the repellent CAT-TAH. Clinton sealed it up in 1999 with the 1977 mandated treaty which  was WJ CLINTON/E PEREZ-BALLADARES.  Panamá was the only Latin country Clinton directly liberated though he allowed the 1998 wave to happen, only introducing the heinous PLAN COLOMBIA with Andres Pastrana.
    It only  happened with all the ease that it did at the insistence of Perez-Balladares´s  college vacation girl, Hillary Rodham, back in the old days, Ernesto Perez-Balladares! Jesse Jackson (the father) was also a big factor in doing it right because he loves to party in Panamá so much and is  so close with the Clintons.
    The TRANSFORMATIONAL FORM, THE WORLD´S PRESIDENT, BARACK OBAMA, has by letting THE CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS, HENRY KISSINGER, OTTO REICH, JOHN NEGROP0ONTE, COLIN POWELL, RAHM EMANUEL, DAVID AXELROD, SUSAN RICE, DAN RESTREPO AND PENNY PRITZKER´S choice, Ricardo “El Loco” Martinelli live up to his nickname, issuing pro US right wing policies at will, turned Martin Torrijos´s socialist/libertarian país latino Nuevo into a confusing, difficult and hard core law enforcement based, illiberal, country, that does nothing for the rich or poor, but JODERNOS, MOLESTARNOS Y FASTIDIARNOS (fuck with us, nag us, and make things annoying for us).
    Torrijos promised 7 changes and did them all while being a dignified, relaxed and soft spoken man: growth the economy, balance the budget, introduce sweeping anti discrimination law, introduce a human sexuality law,  reduce the criminal sanction, broaden the canal and draw up a plan for a Pacific bay cleanup.
    It is the THE CENTER FOR AMERICAN PROGRESS  that I highlight because they are the perfect Clinton/Obama think tank. Violently imperialist and neo-lib and politically correct, it is a perfect “liberal Democrat” blog, which uses PR to seem progressive but is far, far , far worse than CATO or THE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE on every issue.
    My father was a brawling communist turned cynic. I´m a money hustler who´s with the new Soclialist/Libertarian latin wave.  Our general  favorite American poiiticians are Kucinich, McKinney and Paul. We like BLACK IS BACK, CAMPAIGN FOR LIBERTY, THE REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS, AND WORKERS WORLD PARTY. I like  all new left-libertarian and anarcosindicalista pols here. I am working with Cindy Sheehan on financing latin projects, though Eva Golinger takes the lead.  ¡ also retain a right wing  business, defense and litigating attorney whose best friend is the VP. That´s not going to stop me from trying to take my girlfriend´s kids now out of Colombian danger to the Metallica show with Balbina Herrera. I take my edge´s where I can.
    I really liked when YOU first asked me if I was offended, being White, on your  Black focus, preference for  a Black “onda” and separatist if necessary.  I love Malcolm X´s Oxford debate performance, so  always let me know where you stand.  And that to me was only natural.  I like speaking Spanish and being in a latino pana-semita jewish and arab gambling and and business environment. NEITHER PREFERENCE OF EACH OF OURS IS PART8ICULARLY INCONGRUENT WITH EITHER THE OTHER OR WITH RECOGNIZING THE HORRIBLE THREAT OBAMA AND HIS GOOFY WHITE AND BLACK LIBERAL FAN BASE PRESENTS.
    Ishmael Reed hipped me to the problems a streetwise/educated guy like me would get from lots of liberals, and folks like Amy Goodman the most. Ish, Nat Hentoff, Bob Bauman, Scott Horton of Antiwar, Angela Keaton,Glenn Greenwald, Justin Raimundo, Ron Paul and my ex partner Dr Marc Faber have as well. And so it is.
    HR 4253 “FATCAT” by Carl Levin is the “populist” anti-upper middle class world action by the FED-DOT-DOJ GLOBAL FINANACE SUPERCOP ROLE  to make Americans angry at the GIFTS TO THE SUPER ELITES feel glad and xenophobically  orgasmic that foreign  millionaires were going to be fleeced and hurt while American banksters and SUPER ASSHOLES LIKE AL GORE AND JAMIE DIMON ARE GETTING BILLIONS TAX FREE WITH ROBBERY AS IN GM, AND MONETIZATION OF DEATH AS IN CAP N TRADE AND “HEALTH CARE REFORM”
    Cindy Sheehan is great because she gets it.  She knows I´m not letting anyone SOUTH AMERICAN OR GRINGO take my money or invade my home or hurt my family and if some of her (and BAR´s) fans are jealous that I´m a well known applied mathematician in finance and gambling, WELL…I´m not sure I care about that! I´m an independent CYNIC not a PC LIBERAL GRINGO like the ones who really bug me, Eric Alterman and Katrina vandenHeuvel. 
    I dig Paul Street a lot. But I think I may be too coarse for him! But you folks have delivered.  You do and did what you said with BLACK IS BACK and I think inspired a lot of Americans to dissent.  If I see one problem with it, it´s there are so many great American black and white strong intellectual  CLASSICAL LEFTISTS and so many great strong intellectual CLASSICAL CONSERVATIVE/LIBERTARIANS and this fucking Tea an Town thing is preventing a bigger movement. BAR ran two eye openers on (1) Joe Wilson´s gumption and (2) the cultural offense religious people feel at sex discussions in public and the liberals torturing them with TEA BAGGER JOKES while the normally SUPER PRUDISH OBAMA stays silent.
    Being a kind of multi lingual anti Zionist jewish world citizen Latino-indentifying (Panama, Mexico,Uruguay) we are way ahead of the American liberals on fun, sex, “la vida Buena” and just big groups of fun individuals who share common interests. 
    ONLY OBAMAS AND LIBERALS´TACTICS BROUGHT  HIDEOUS RACE  BULLSHIT AND FEAR OF VICE AND “THE RULES” AND SEX BECAUSE HE´S AN EFFETE UPTIGHT ASSHOLE  AND BULLSHIT ARTIST WHO HAS A MAGIC effect on white liberal neoliberal effete uptight assholes AND BULLSHIT ARTISTS.
    HERE´S A FALSE FLAG IN THE MAKING IN COLOMBIA TO FUCK PIEDAD CÓRDOBA AND THE PARTIDO LIBERAL WITH THE ALTERNATIVE DEMOCRATIC POLE  OF THE PHILOSOPHICAL CARLOS GAVIRÍA AND THE COMEBACK OF FAMOUS LIBERAL EX PREZ CÉSAR GAVÍRIA, THE MAN WHO TOOK DOWN ESCOBAR, ESPECIALLY IF HE´S PART OF A POLITICAL PROCESS AS OPENLY GAY. I WROTE THIS UP FOR FACEBOOK.
    My comment: Yet another New York Times piece that I mistook for The Onion! I´ll grant that the hotel they´re talking about in Cartagena is pretty nice. There´s only one problem for American tourists with loud voices and fanny packs, however: COSTEÑOS WITH GUNS.

    Is the Haiti "situation" starting to make more sense? So, to liberal ...New York Times reading, Barack-voters, I say "by all means, go to Cartagena, go to Bogotá, go to Pereira...the HK 9mms are in season as are the cut Mossbergs and the quaint folkloric dancing people have no problem whatsoever with the violence and the 7 news bases...enjoy yourself!"

    My girlfriend sums it up; “Creo que estan utilizando un mecanismo para que la gente visite nuestro pais sin ningun problema,  lamentablemente y sin temor a equivocarme pienso que es un absurdo porque Colombia no tiene la seguridad  adecuada para que cualquier extranjero lo visite; amo a mi Colombia pero tenemos que ser honestos, si no se ha llegado a un acuerdo para la liberación de secuestrados, no permitamos que sigan habiendo mas secuestros. De hecho todo esto es estrategia política para que vayan, después…. Arréglenselas como puedan. El gobierno dice: No hay ningún problema, pero si lo hay todo esto lo hacen para que la gente se confie y después viene el secuestro y asi EE.UU tiene que tomar parte para “ayudar” a colombia. Lo único que quieren es meterse donde no deben. Ya paren esta joda! No nos dejemos joder por una persona que cuando quiso obtener poder recurrió al pueblo, ahora el jode al pueblo.
    Cheers, ENLIGHTENED CYNIC
    And apologies in advance to MI PAISANA JUDÍA NYCARTIST for my foul language and Magda´s. Jajaja!
