“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Had I so interfered in behalf of the rich, the powerful, the intelligent, the so-called great, or in behalf of their friends and suffered and sacrificed what I have in this interference; every man in this court would have deemed it worthy of reward rather than punishment.”—John Brown
Today, in this 21st century, inside the United States of America, everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people are all de facto slaves to an avaricious, conniving, callous, and blood sucking national and global corporate/military power elite. But it doesn’t have to remain this way.
This slavery is not defined by mere color. It is defined by the very real political and economic enslavement of everyday humanity of all colors—both nationally and globally.
In the year 2008, the power elite of this nation (including its massive corporate-stream media) callously bamboozled everyday ordinary people by advocating and propagating the then U.S. presidential candidacy of Mr. ‘Hope and Change’ Barack Obama. Cynically playing upon the pain and frustrations of ordinary people, the power elite ensured that their Trojan Horse choice, Barack Obama, was installed as the U.S. chief executive and commander-in-chief.
After being selected as U.S. president in 2008, in relatively short order, the articulate scandalous Barack Obama, and his corporate-owned Democrat and Republican cohorts began quickly moving the hoodwinked and mesmerized people of this nation backwards—in the very name of moving it forward.
Upon assuming the presidency, Obama immediately began the enormous expansion of his war machine—including the incessant use of deadly U.S. drone missiles against the sovereign nations of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Bahrain, and Yemen, etc.
He became the first U.S. president to officially have his very own secret ‘kill (i.e., murder) list.’
He continues the indefensible horrors of and at the U.S. gulag/torture chamber known as Guantanamo, even as he hypocritically calls for so-called ‘gun control’ at home while slaughtering thousands of children, women, and men abroad.
By this year of 2013, the power elite’s Barack Obama had already signed and ushered in the legally codified indefinite detention of U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens alike (without the right to even being charged, or having a trial, a jury, or having legal defense)—as contained in provision 1021 of the infamous so-called NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act).
Moreover, he now oversees the largest spying and surveillance police-state apparatus within the U.S. in the history of this nation.
This is 21st century de facto U.S. fascism. If we ignore this fact, we do so at our own peril.
All of these above mentioned things, and so many more outrages, represent the hypocrisy, horror, and reality of Drone Man Barack Obama’s so-called ‘hope and change.’ Barack Obama, the power elite’s Trojan Horse, is in actuality, the hope and hang president. Barack Obama’s deception, along with that of his corporate-owned Democrat and Republican accomplices, has further enslaved the everyday ordinary people of all colors in this nation on a scale never before seen.
I delineate how Barack Obama, and his minions, have furthered, and is furthering the agenda of the national and global power elite in this YouTube video. It is hoped that this video will be both informative and encouraging.
It is imperative that we know and remember that, in the final analysis, we ordinary everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people are NOT powerless. The minions of this national and global power elite WANT us to feel alienated and powerless. We must not succumb to despair. Rather, we must creatively and collectively find the ways and means to reclaim our critical-thinking abilities and regain our humanity in this long and protracted struggle. At stake, is literally everything, including the existence of humankind on our precious planet of Mother Earth!
Remember: Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Onward, then, my sisters and brothers. Onward!
