I'm voting Obama!

To say I have little enthusiasm for an Obama Presidency is an understatement. He’s clearly thin skinned, narcissistic, controlling, and carries a lot of baggage. His wife is her gender’s equivalent of the ‘angry black man’. She’s got a chip on her shoulder and is bitter towards her country and its system, even though they gave her what she has by way of affirmative action (at the expense of whites).

Most of all, his Presidency would likely presage a major ratcheting up of the whole equality eco-system, featuring an avalanche of claims from blacks for slavery and whatever you’re having yourself.

But where do you leave the opposition?

McCain is a cancer-ridden septuagenarian, on whom actuaries would give short odds against his finishing out his first term. This would then give us President Palin. Whatever her other virtues may be (not too apparent to me, must confess) her ignorance of the world at large is truly frightening. She thinks she has foreign policy experience because she can see parts of Russia from where she lives, and has visited Canada. She thinks the Iraq fiasco has been mandated by God.

But, you may ask, what about McCain, the ‘foreign policy expert’? This expertise seems to have derived from looking at the walls of his cell in Vietnam (when he wasn’t pimping on TV for his captors) and a trip to Iraq where he could see out only through the serried ranks of his bodyguards.

And this foreign policy expert thinks Iraq has a border with Afghanistan!

GW Bush looks like a Talleyrand or Metternich by comparison.

Does this matter?

Yes, at the best of times - and these are not the best of times.

But the real problem lies with the neocons. Despite being at the root of every disaster of the last decade, this government-within-a-government still rides high, especially with McCain and Palin. They’re a perfect match. McCain is bustin’ for a fight. With whom is not a big issue, but enemies of choice are Russia and/or Iran. And this suits the neocons perfectly, given that their solution to every problem is to bomb the shit out of something.

Here’s a montage of the Neocon Dirty Dozen

Top: Irving Kristol, Norman Podhoretz, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Scooter Libby

Bottom: John Bolton, Eliot Abrams, Robert Kagan, Michael Ledeen, William Kristol, Frank Gaffney Jr.

Neocons are conservative mainly Jewish journalists and politicians linked to the Right-wing Israeli Likud who support United States corporate, political, cultural and military imperialism with the use of preemptive World War if necessary. To a large extent they manipulate the US to further the aims of the Israeli War Party. A classic case of the tail wagging the dog.

For example, in Chain of Command, Seymour Hersh asked the question back in 2004 that will become the major question all historians will have to answer: "How did they do it? How did eight or nine neoconservatives who believed that a war in Iraq was the answer to international terrorism get their way?

How did they redirect the government and rearrange long-standing American priorities and policies with so much ease? How did they overcome the bureaucracy, intimidate the press, mislead the Congress, and dominate the military? Is our democracy that fragile?"

Looks like it, Seymour.

No matter what you may think of their ideology or ethics, one cannot help being shocked and awed at the ability of this relatively small group to control the papers and politics of a country against all odds and against all reality.

Far from being chastened by the Iraq debacle, the neocons are now poised for their moment of greatest influence, and Palin has made it abundantly clear where they and she are headed.

Sources in the McCain camp, the Republican Party and Washington think tanks say Palin was identified as a potential future leader of the neoconservative cause in June 2007. That was when the annual summer cruise organised by the neocon Weekly Standard magazine docked in Juneau, the Alaskan state capital, and the pundits on board took tea with Governor Palin.

Comments by the governor of Alaska in her first television interview, in which she said Nato may have to go to war with Russia and took a tough line on Iran's nuclear programme, were the result of two weeks of briefings by neoconservatives.

Pat Buchanan, the former Republican presidential candidate and a foreign policy isolationist, said: "Palin has become, overnight, the most priceless political asset the movement has. Look for the neocons to move with all deliberate speed to take her into their camp by pressing upon her advisers and staff, and steering her into the AEI-Weekly Standard-War Party orbit."

Since she was named as McCain's running mate that is just what has happened. While McCain was publicly distancing himself from the policies and personalities of the Bush administration, Palin was sequestered with a series of his former aides.

Eyebrows were also raised when, on the Tuesday after her selection, Palin was ushered into the company of AIPAC, the Israeli lobby group in Washington. In her first television interview, she was on message, agreeing with McCain that Israel has the right to take military action against Iran if necessary.

Jacob Heilbrunn, author of They Knew They Were Right: The Rise of the Neocons, said the interview was "further evidence that she has soaked up the neocon view of the world." He was particularly alarmed by her suggestion that war with Russia is "perhaps".

Well, so am I, as it happens. History has shown that wars break out for the most trivial of reasons, and/or grotesque ignorance of the protagonists. The ignorance of McCain/Palin, with the necon cabal beavering away in the background, makes an Obama Presidency the least awful of options.

Why don't they offer a 'None of the above' option?

The Unstable/Unable ticket has no idea what they are doing on foreign policy, but they show the same stubborn insistence in their bad decisions and gaffes that our previous admin.

Could it get worse than Bush/Cheney? I didn't think so. Unstable/Unable will be appreciably worse than Bush/Cheney.

Obama is a 'nig-nog' (not my words) , and seeks to destroy America and Western power in general.

McCain is white and a war hero.

I fail to see the dilemma.

Also Obamas missus has been compared to a Jackie O , when in reality she is an ugly black bitch

That's a shocking and shockingly truthful analysis. The lesson drawn from Iraq has been,'public support is not neccessary to fight a war abroad'.

Rhein said...

The neocons are warmongers who want American hegemony while the democrats are liberal marxists/socialists hellbent on the dispossession and destruction of the white race.

Either way we're screwed but if i had to choose i'd rather be wiped out by a nuclear missile than by a slow death 'a la SA' while we gradually lose our demography until we just die out.

But in any case the international bankers/globalists/nwo or whatever you want to call them are behind both parties so in the end it really doesn't matter who wins. Unless it's Charles Baldwin, that would be good, but sadly it won't happen.

well at least you are keeping the likes of Ali happy said...

Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al are traitors. McCain and the pretty person are traitors-in-waiting.Obama is very loyal Kenya or Indonesia.

Tasha said...

First off, many of us in the US are voting for none of the above. we do have the option to vote for anyone we want. I am voting for Santa Claus.
I think you are way overreacting to Palin as President. She might actually do a good job, except she is for Amnesty for Illegal aliens , just like McCain and Hussien Obama.
the good news is the US has just been dealt it's death blow by those Harvard Grads, the ones who mismanaged everything because they knew they wouldnt be held accountable. By the way, this house of cards began to crumble because the Major banks were giving home loans to illegal aliens, mostly from Mexico.
I admit that I dont agree with Palin but I like her.

Zngr said...

After Palin appeared I started hoping McCain will not win after all. Previously a McCain victory would have been great amusement but now it presents new, scary possibilities. Damn.

Then again if Obama wins, he's bound to give his own "Bill Cosby speech" at some point which might rattle a few of the blacks and, most importantly, university professors and other liberal academics and their students back to their senses (they still think USA is the promised land of racism and black repression, despite a black is running for president in a very convincing manner).

The majority of true racists in USA today appear to be the liberal whites who continue to treat blacks as some sort of subhuman monkeys and automatons forced to commit crime, climb down the social ladder and fail, unable to finish school, speak normally or find a job, unless the Whites hand these things to them for free (or in the case of nigger-talk, tolerate it), instead of thinking human beings possessing a free will who can affect their own future and make their own success (like every other minority group).

With your bashing of "non-whites", now you'r bending over for "Obama".

Forgot to take your "meds" today?.


Joe O'Neill said...

It's a bit like saying better the devil you know than the devil you don't.I disagree with you on this one,for an entirely different reason....Blacks or even half blacks ( we call them coconuts in this part of the world outside white inside )are more racist than any white would even dream of being, an Obama cabinet would be filled with blacks purely because they are black.

Joe O'Neill has my vote. I'd sooner die fast than slow, like we're doing in South Africa.


SAVANT said...

A host of interesting comments here. I'd just make this distinction between the two sides: How much damage can Obama do? He'll be dependent on a white dominated House and Senate, who probably wont be in too much of a mood for this kind of crap given the economy etc.

whereas McCain/Palin could in all probability incinerate us all.

Pedro - Svant is just totally non-biassed!

Savant - do you still say Jews dont control us?

SAVANT said...

Anonymous 22.59. Yes, I DO say that. The fact that most neocons are Jews hsould not take from the fact that their views represent but a minority of Jewish opinion, both in the US and Israel, by gthe way. Also, some of gtheir most implacable opponents are themsleves Jewish.

Rhein said...

You might be interested about this blog Savant and since she's been talking mostly about Obama in the last week i thought i'd link it. I'll admit she's very biased in favor of the Republicans but pretty much everything she says can be verified, unless it's an opinion or theory of course.

Check out the olders posts too when you have time. Pretty fascinating blog i think and i love her writing style.

SAVANT said...

Definitely aninteresting blog rhein, and, as you say, well written. I think she overdies the conspiracy bit though. I think most things happen through ignorance/incompetence (cf. McCain/Palin). Also, I tend to suspect anyone who keeps telling me what God really has in mind.

But yes, worth a read.

If B.O. is elected the U.S.A. will become another S.A.. One big "American Express Card" for everyone. Michelle Obama will then "be proud" of the U.S.A.. Check out Detroit,Michigan or even better Washington D.C. they are an example of minority leadership.

"The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they're an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't.

"You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They've got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear.

"They've got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else.

"But I'll tell you what they don't want. They don't want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don't want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They're not interested in that. That doesn't help them. That's against their interests. They don't want people who are smart enough to sit around the kitchen table and figure out how badly they're getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 years ago.

"You know what they want? Obedient workers people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, but just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it.

"Now, they're coming for your Social Security. They want your fucking retirement money. They want it back, so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. And you know something? They'll get it. They'll get it all, sooner or later, because they own this fucking place. It's a big club, and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club.

"This country is finished."

There's one huge difference with SA. Here whites make up less than 10% of the population. The situation in the YS is reversed. BO would be severely constrained in what he could do in that case.
