“Each generation must discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it, in relative opacity.”—Frantz Fanon
When corporations and government become, in actuality, intertwined as one entity, the end result is fascism. This is the precise reality in the United States in this 21st century, and it has spread like a cancer throughout this nation.
The foundation for corporate hegemony (i. e., domination) is the endless and single-minded push, by a relatively tiny elite, to expropriate, control, and manipulate national and global natural resources (including human beings themselves) for their own avaricious benefit. Governments and their concomitant politicians are mere shells and pawns of and for this tiny elite. Elections are made meaningless and the ever decreasing veneer of people’s democracy is a sick joke. Politicians, instead of being servants of , for, and to ordinary people, are the willing fork-tongued puppets of multinational corporations. This is the fascism of the 21st century in the U.S. and it is becoming more blatant every single day.
The reality and consequences of corporate hegemony in the U.S. are very active in every aspect of the daily lives of everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people throughout this nation. No major decisions are made that are not inordinately influenced by the insatiably greedy and insidious hands of bloodsucking corporations that are owned and controlled by a tiny national and global power elite. In addition to the White House and the U.S. Congress (Democrats and Republicans alike) being corporate-owned, the so-called mainstream U.S. ‘news’ media, universities and colleges, the military, the police, and prisons are already, in de facto terms, overwhelmingly corporate-owned. This is the callous and deliberate subversion of democracy, and it is, in a real sense, nothing less than 21st century fascism covered over by an increasingly decaying layer of fake democracy.
Banksters are liars, manipulators, and international corporate gangsters
Banks in the U.S., and those who own them, together with the elite of other giant corporations are, in effect, international white collar gangsters. They thrive on their economic manipulation of financial markets and perpetual wars—which bring the elite enormous profit—and the ordinary people endless economic pain and suffering.
The struggling ordinary people of this nation have been, and continue to be, slaves to a distorted and utterly false narrative propagated by the many institutions of the banksters and their cohorts in and of the corporate power elite.
One example, among many, of the distorted and utterly false narrative propagated against the ordinary people by banksters and their corporate power elite cohorts, is the myth pertaining to the so-called U.S. Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve is NOT federal. It is in fact a private central bank over which the people of this nation, through their congressional ‘representatives’ have NO real authority. The use of the word “federal” is a deliberate ruse to mislead and confuse everyday ordinary people in this nation and mask the fact that it is a private central bank that steals money from the people and manipulates financial markets to the advantage of the corporate power elite. In the words of activist, author, and talk show host Michael Rivero, “The Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express.”
To gain additional specific insight into exactly how corporate banksters have and continue to stop at NOTHING in order to constantly economically bloodsuck the people of this nation, be sure to view the highly informative and powerful presentation, All Wars Are Bankers’ Wars, by Michael Rivero.
Barack Obama—an insidiously effective weapon against the ordinary people
The initial grooming and subsequent installation of Barack Obama as president of the U.S. was arranged and choreographed by the corporate power elite for whom he has been and is a very dangerous tool against struggling everyday people of all colors nationally and internationally. It should also be remembered that whether it is a Democrat or a Republican—male or female of ANY color—the game plan of the banksters and their Wall Street power elite cohorts remains the utter subversion of democracy through the expropriation, controlling, and manipulation of resources that actually belong to the everyday people of this nation and world.
The U.S. power elite knew full well that Barack Obama represented (and still represents) more of the same bloodsucking—only much worse—for ordinary people. This power elite also knew that Obama, as their front man, would economically and politically exacerbate the incredible pain of ordinary people, in the fallacious name of ‘hope and change’ and ‘yes we can’—while simultaneously bloodsucking the people more than ever before in service to the corporate power elite’s insatiable appetite for power and profit. The corporate power elite, knew that in the very name of ‘hope and change’ Barack Obama (and his Democrat and Republican cohorts) would further facilitate corporate plutocracy/fascism in this nation. And this of course is exactly what Obama has done.
Thus far, Barack Obama has proven to be the most insidiously effective weapon against the legitimate needs, hopes, and aspirations of everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in this nation and throughout Mother Earth. But this, too, might be beginning to change as people become increasingly aware of whose interests the corporate-owned Obama and his Democrat and Republican political cohorts actually serve. Obama’s secret ‘Kill List,’ his indefinite detention NDAA law, his massive NSA spying apparatus, his support for corporate hegemony, his attempts to distort and destroy the U.S. Constitution, and his egregious violations of international law, etc., speak volumes as to who and what Barack Obama really is.
Time for clarity and renewed creative struggle
We in this nation, and indeed humanity as a whole, have reached an important crossroads in our collective existence on this planet.
Either we will allow ourselves to continue to be bamboozled, harvested, and economically, politically, and often quite literally slaughtered, or, we will reject and stop feeding, and being fed to, the corporately fascist, police-state U.S. political machine. The choice rests with us.
We already know that the corporate-owned politicians and other de facto gatekeepers of and for this corrupt political system will continue in their efforts to confuse and manipulate everyday ordinary people of all colors at home and abroad (Reference: Intrepid Report, Barack Obama’s de facto totalitarian nation). However, our task is to creatively find the ways and means to collectively resist and free ourselves from the bloody clutches of this U.S. corporate fascist state. The corporate-owned Barack Obama and his Democrat and Republican minions have laid the foundation for blatant fascism in the U.S., and it is WE THE EVERYDAY ORDINARY PEOPLE who must throw euphemistic wrenches into the U.S. corporate fascist political machine.
It is time for clarity and a renewal and reinvigorating of the collective human spirit and struggle in this nation. This is our obligation to ourselves, each other, and our precious Mother Earth.
Remember: Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Onward, then, my sisters and brothers. Onward!
