Barack vs. The Oligarchy : Deal or No Deal?

PA Primary Underway in America’s Family-rooms

“Abandon any thoughts that this is democracy in action.”

While it is assumed that only the popular vote statewide will reign accurate today, American homes will be lit up with the glow of TV’s carrying the coverage from a variety of sources.  Sports analogies ad nauseum will be hoisted as commentary and in-depth analysis will challenge consciousness.  Yet, the simple approach will be denied since “More = Wins  / Less = Loses” is not the vehicle that will inspire folks to buy a plethora of products that drive Corporate news profits.

While not a hard and fast rule – some info-tainers will use hockey allegory and others will make comparisons via baseball.  It’s all in the demographics provided by the analysts that no-one sees inside the infotainment HQ.  But, make no mistake – this is not about the USA, this is about the US currency that is the ultimate object drawing your viewership.  Abandon any thoughts that this is Democracy in action.  That will wait until after the election and will be relegated to the heady pages of the not so profitable periodicals, Web-life and Congressional reports.  A few radio outlets can be added to the list, but with very few exceptions – they are mostly entertainment and focus on listener consensus, lest they cannot survive.  Yes, there are exceptions but they are very limited.

The Power is Not in the Electorate

“coalition-of-the-shilling.”

What ???  Unfortunately this is, for the most part, true.  The power is in the hands of the Oligarchs that essentially tell the electorate how to vote.  How to cast their ballot based on political operatives that influence the community, churches and the above-mentioned smorgasbord of media outlets.

Take ABC the during last weeks faux-debate of the Democratic opponents.  By now, any interested American with an Internet connection or a TV knows there is considerable criticism of the manner in which the debate was handled.  Our own words on the subject can be found <here.>

After the article was written it was learned that the question that George Stephanopoulos posed to Barack Obama about Mr. Ayers was actually part of the list of talking points that were provided to Right Wing Activist Promoted – Sean Hannity – a Fox News info-tainer.  Hannity is known for his promotion of Right Wing extremism and his close relationship with Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter and a variety of the coalition-of-the-shilling.  Careful examination will reveal to anyone with the time that this is a widely deployed practice.  The talking points are unmistakable and reformed “Republican Conservative Hit-man” David Brock, routinely tracks the major disinformation of the American public at Media Matters.

You know that phrase, The Most Trusted Name in News?  Forget it for now.  It has deteriorated into oblivion since it was first flown as a flag – and we helped it with a collective fixation on ourselves.

The Power is in the Power

“…self importance is the fulcrum that political charlatans use to leverage their doctrine.”

It is political operatives (now reformed David Brock tells us) that move elections by moving people’s minds in a carefully plotted direction over a period of time.

It is brainwashing.

It is programming.

It is an American political reality.

It is as difficult to detect as a dose of arsenic in an almond flavored liqueur.

Many Americans obsessed with achieving social status, whether locally among a small rural crowd or in larger economically aggressive circles, are perfect subjects.  Why else, would any responsibly minded individual spend 50K on an SUV to negotiate the parking lot of the mall, that averages 13 miles to the gallon, in an era when energy, carbon foot-print and green initiatives abound.  It is because self importance is the fulcrum that political charlatans use to leverage their doctrine.

And the Power is the Oligarchy

“… the Nation has never been less secure, including the final months of the Revolutionary War.

A hand full of people are actually controlling the game.  Even after proving that the Ohio and Florida elections were essentially rigged in the 2000; even though miscreants such as Rep. Peter King -R, NY on a drunken tear described that “others” would see to the “counting” and declared a Republican win long before polls closed.  Follow his career and the careers of long list of political operatives with marching orders in Congress.  Parties that “we” the American people empowered with thoughtless votes because someone bought us a pulled pork sandwich, or got the zoning board to change a long-standing ruling that favored us, or got a friend’s friend’s friend’s son into Annapolis or West Point.  Great guy that Pete King !

Create a need and fill the gap.  We’re very simple. We say things that are truly indicative of the oldest social rules of society.  You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours – the mainstay of simpleton compromise.  The mainstay of political compromise. An unusually dangerous practice when a Nation is in peril, a currency is in terrible danger of further devaluation; and the Nation has never been less secure, and that includes the final months of the Revolutionary War.

Hillary Clinton Endorsed by the Man That Paid 24 Million to Destroy Her???

“What experience?  Certainly not being the President’s wife.”

Perhaps it’s all just coincidence or perhaps she agreed to pardon George Bush for war crimes that are certain to be charged; or perhaps it’s just a matter of magnanimously letting bygones-be-bygones; but, doesn’t it ring particularly peculiar that Richard Mellon Scaithe (you want to see power? – try to find a picture of him – go ahead, use the google !! )- the known financial backer of the “War on the Clintons” including Whitewater, Foster, Hubbell and the “intern,” felt compelled to give her a listen ???  Did you read  his interview as he expressed that he sorta-kinda was impressed by her??  As though one meeting with his board around a table was all it took to undo a decade and half of vitriol and warfare ???  (For anyone unconvinced of the dark workings afoot – we’ll be offering a series of $100 NYC bridges and  $25 Rolex watches for sale soon on our website, and forwarding the profits to offset health care expenses for the uninsured)

It would be hard to conceive that Hillary Clinton believes that the residents of Pennsylvania are so collectively stupid that they wouldn’t suspect something of on unsavory alliance.  Yet, the Corporate Media is with few exceptions – silent on the matter.  All fist pumping aside – wasn’t it a tad suspicious when Hillary Clinton began articulating that John McCain’s experience was superior to Barack Obama??  Yet to date, not one corporate media outlet has demanded that the Clinton campaign provide data relying to her repeated claims of experience.  What experience?  Certainly not being the President’s wife.  If that were a benchmark, wouldn’t the Republicans have been more encouraged to run Laura Bush instead of McCain, who is clearly out of his mind and in the pocket of Oligarchy’s Founders Club?

The Oligarchy Antidote – Americas Youth and their Revolutionary Spirit

“A pusillanimous pipsqueak of atomic proportions that appeared in a Cameo on a TV show that depicts his style of leadership. Deal or No Deal…”

There is truly on one thing our Nation can count on right now and that is to have faith in the youth of our Country.  A youth that is not so lazy and marred.  A youth that respectfully marches off to war, even when they don’t understand. Alas, many more didn’t march off to war and among this youth our Nation will rely to grab control of a runaway train.  They’ll seek the counsel of wisdom and experience from a dwindling yet less graft susceptible bench of experience in order to help temper our collective anger; and, to tamp our disgust at our appointed President.   Disgust at his utter disregard for the many crises he’s caused around the globe, dutifully following the orders of his handlers, defiantly wearing a smirk of incomprehension as though it were a handle-bar mustache.  Proud to defy our eyes and ears; George W. Bush describes a beautiful landscape while we stare in grief at the wreckage in his wake.

A pusillanimous pipsqueak of atomic proportions that appeared in a Cameo on  a TV show that depicts his style of leadership. Deal or No Deal, missing all but the neanderthal shrugging, raised eyebrow and indiscernible breathy utterance that traditionally follows in succession near feeding time.

Much more of our youth has witnessed the mind boggling performance of the Oligarchy’s latest virtuoso, and we trust they can see the difference between smoke and mirrors, and a chance to bring America to a rehab with public service, volunteerism and reasoned discourse; as well as, abolishing the “voodoo economics” that Ronald Reagan sold us with the same lack of understanding and unbridled enthusiasm as he sold us Borax when he hosted a TV series.   A time when theatre goers rejected him yet the Oligarchs mustered the resources to support his rise as Goverenor so they could appoint him as President while the voters went through the motions.
