JotmanI am surprised that you are so bewildered (to say it mildly - if not entirely misled) by the Obama's victory and especially by the reaction of SHEEPLE !could you please clarify your position about Obama? do you seriously as joyful as all those people who are on those photos and videos you've posted here on your blog ?I think to get a bit more realistic about Obama it might help to read some stuff like this, by reknown investigative journalist as Pilger, not what MSM methodically implanted into sheeple's already sufficiently brainwashed heads :The diplomacy of lyinghttp://www.johnpilger.com/page.asp?partid=50923 Oct 2008>>>The beatification of President Barack Obama is already under way... As ever, the Orwell Inversion Test is necessary. Obama claims that his vast campaign wealth comes from small individual donors, yet he has also received funds from some of the most notorious looters on Wall Street. Moreover, the “dove” and “candidate of change” has voted repeatedly to fund George W Bush’s rapacious wars, and now demands more war in Afghanistan while he threatens to bomb Pakistan...The lesson learned is that no presidential candidate, least of all a Democrat awash with money from America’s “banksters”, as Franklin Roosevelt called them, can or will challenge a militarised system that controls and rewards him. Obama’s job is to present a benign, even progressive face that will revive America’s democratic pretensions, internationally and domestically, while ensuring nothing of substance changes.Among ordinary Americans desperate for a secure life, his skin colour may help him regain this unjustified “trust”, even though it is of a similar hue to that of Colin Powell, who lied to the United Nations for Bush and now endorses Obama. As for the rest of us, is it not time we opened our eyes and exercised our right not to be lied to, yet again?<<<and especially this (BTW as a side subject it is also mentioned there the difference between real journalism and "corporate journalism" ):Beware of the Obama hype. What 'change' in America really meansNov 12thhttp://www.johnpilger.com/page.asp?partid=511>>>... brainwashing placed on most Americans from a tender age: that theirs is the most superior society in the history of the world, and all means are justified, including the spilling of copious blood, in maintaining that superiority.That is the subtext of Barack Obama’s “oratory” ...Yes, Obama’s election is historic, a symbol of great change to many. But it is equally true that the American elite has grown adept at using the black middle and management class. The courageous Martin Luther King recognised this when he linked the human rights of black Americans with the human rights of the Vietnamese, then being slaughtered by a liberal Democratic administration. And he was shot.Obama’s first two crucial appointments represent a denial of the wishes of his supporters on the principal issues on which they voted [Joe Biden & Rahm Emanuel] ...No serious scrutiny of this is permitted within the histrionics of Obamamania ...As for historic moments, there is another that has gone unreported but is well under way – liberal democracy’s shift towards a corporate dictatorship, managed by people regardless of ethnicity, with the media as its clichéd façade. “True democracy,” wrote Penn Jones Jr, the Texas truth-teller, “is constant vigilance: not thinking the way you’re meant to think and keeping your eyes wide open at all times.” <<<
It seems to me that Obama represents three big things: 1) the shattering of a race ceiling; 2) the definitive end of Bush Administration (at least the Republicans will not continue to rule); 3) an opportunity for American society to renew itself, at home and abroad. The first, it seems to me, is absolutely worthy of celebrating in its own right. I don't see why a healthy skepticism about the degree of difference between the Dem and Rep (second point), or anticipation that the "opportunity" will be wasted (third point), in any way diminishes the first one, as this video reminds us:http://jotman.blogspot.com/2008/11/dream-is-real_08.html
the point is - this Obama's victory is a sham and clever PR event. and the only thing which bewilders people is - his skin color. otherwise he is as much puppet of CFR and corporations as Bush was, perhaps even much more (I mean - the extent), since Bush at least was already from a quite wealthy family and connections, while that can't be said about Obama. therefore, this 'racial' matter is merely a bait to be swallowed by not so clever public. and there are just too many competent enough people who de-beautify Obama as anything related with Change he supposed to symbolize. Ron Paul is for one. LaRouche is another. and there are many others.so, I do not see any reasons for such joy, and therefore it rather shows the degree of how much american public is brainwashed, and how powerful their MSM are to entice such a "joy" in sheeple.
.. . . the point is - this Obama's victory is a sham and clever PR event.With all due respect, my point is that although events may prove your theory correct, the theory you present is -- at this juncture -- simply a theory.In the meantime there is one fact worthy of celebrating. America, a country founded on slavery, now has a black president.On another note, although I respect Ron Paul, I cannot say the same for that other person you name. People who engage in smear campaigns based on the conspiracy theories they spread only undermine the good work and intentions of serious people like Ron Paul or yourself.
"America, a country founded on slavery, now has a black president."hahaha ! here is one worthy reply to that (taken from the comment in some other blog):"Is it possible for ANYONE be "white" in politics?"of course in this phrase meaning of "black" and "white" is rather deeper than merely superficial appearance as skin color.and the main point is: in this regard Obama is as black as Bush or others before.if you do not like LaRouche - no problems.you can search for Nader. here is one video:Ralph Nader: Obama will be like Bushyoutube.com/watch?v=h8H92fcSOdY
