Is Anyone Dumb Enough to Believe that Obama Supports the 99%?

George Washington's picture

Obama is pretending that he supports the 99%.

But Obama has raised more from Wall Street than anyone else. He is bought and paid for.

Mr. Obama has appointed the very Wall Street insiders who helped cause the financial crisis to top posts. See this and this.

He thinks that high unemployment is a good thing.

Obama – just like the other pimps in D.C. – has institutionalized fraud as an official (if unspoken) party platform.

Americans want our liberties restored, our troops brought home, and the Fed reined in. But Obama has implemented plans for war throughout the Middle East crafted by the Neoconservatives a decade (or more) ago, and gotten us into 7 (oops …8) wars, attacked our liberties even more than Bush and allowed the Fed to dramatically expand its powers.

Americans didn’t want bailouts, but Obama helped to facilitate trillions in direct and hidden bailouts.

Obama doesn’t support the 99%. He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

As Yves Smith notes:

A saying I learned in Caracas: “A politician is someone who gets in front of a mob and tries to call it a parade.”

Note: Forget what you’ve been taught … the mainstream Democrats and mainstream Republicans are virtually identical on all core matters. Don’t fall for the old divide-and-conquer trick.

“The protesters have a distinct ideology and are bound by a deep commitment to radical left-wing policies. On Oct. 10 and 11, Arielle Alter Confino, a senior researcher at my polling firm, interviewed nearly 200 protesters in New York’s Zuccotti Park. Our findings probably represent the first systematic random sample of Occupy Wall Street opinion.

“Our research shows clearly that the movement doesn’t represent unemployed America and is not ideologically diverse. Rather, it comprises an unrepresentative segment of the electorate that believes in radical redistribution of wealth, civil disobedience and, in some instances, violence. Half (52%) have participated in a political movement before, virtually all (98%) say they would support civil disobedience to achieve their goals, and nearly one-third (31%) would support violence to advance their agenda

“An overwhelming majority of demonstrators supported Barack Obama in 2008. Now 51% disapprove of the president while 44% approve, and only 48% say they will vote to re-elect him in 2012, while at least a quarter won’t vote…

 

In case you don't get it, these are Obama voters for the most part. At least 48% of them are. What more do you need to know?

Ponder this: Obama has nothing in common with American blacks, no more than a Polish Politician does with Americans of Polish decent. Obama's family were never slaves, they never came to America. The only Obamas that are here, came illegally the last few decades to sponge off the taxpayer. His father was here on a student visa. Obama's people were the ones who CAPTURED the ancestors of the blacks in America and sold them for a profit. American blacks are generally natural born Americans, meaning both parents at birth were American Citizens. Obama's father was a British Subject, therefore Obama is not a Natural Born American. It has nothing to do with a birth certificate. In case you don't get what the Elites are up to, they keep pushing Marco Rubio. His parents were not American Citizens at the time of his birth. Meaning, Rubio is an American Citizen. He is not a Natural Born American.

Why do blacks vote for this fraud? They spit on their true leaders, people like Sowell and Thomas, and embrace a bankster fraud lackey like Obama. If there ever was an Uncle Tom for the Elites, it's Obama. He was bought and paid for long ago.

Sorry, but the enemy of my enemy is not my friend. I cannot embrace trust fund college students, SEIU, ACORN, paid illegal Mexican protesters, Working Party paid agitators from Craigslist. Just because there may be a few limited government - follow the Constitution people out there, does not make this a good movement, at least in NYC. Please remember how the Bolsheviks used the tired of war soldiers and sailors to overthrow the new Republic government for a bankster funded gangster government. Think things are different this time?

Spot on about the parties being the same. The Reps and Dems both support hugely expensive, hugely intrusive government, and just argue over exactly what they want to print more money to fund. Both blame the other party for any problems when it in fact is both party's faults, and both are now paying lip service to reducing debt while both's plans will greatly increase this massive government debt.

I think Ron Paul is really the only one that will help out on this out of those who are running now. I don't really think he specifically supports the 99% either, but I also can't see him continuing these disasterous Wall Street bailouts. I can't see him favoring continuing the special treatment for financiers they are getting now either (most galling, the continuously overlooking fraud, overlooking the ongoing forgery of mortgage documents, and so on, so people who should be in jail or at least out of a job at these institutions continue on undeterred.)

you see, the money O-man got from Wall St. is from the 99%, therefore he assumed that the 99% support him.

50 Percent Of Americans Support Marijuana Legalization In New Poll

These 50% are probably the ones who were high during history class to learn that British Empire had Chinese hooked on Opium so they can get silver. Now, it is the Chinese probably pushing "medical" marijuana for American oil and gold

 The Qing government, seated in Beijing in the north of China, was unable to halt opium smuggling in the southern provinces. A porous Chinese border and rampant local demand only encouraged the all-too eager East India Company, which had its monopoly on opium trade recognised by the British government, which itself wanted silver. By the 1820s China was importing 900 tons of Bengali opium annually.

To get rid of Occupy Wall St's anger, all Bloomberg would have to do is pass around marijuana.

There are several things that allow this government, and its Branches and Bureacrats to function outside the actual Law of the Land. One, of course, is the Federal Reserve, another is the 17th Amendment that nationalized the Senate, then of course you have the 16th Amendment which gave the government a power well beyond the original Constitutional limits. Then you have all the other extra-Constitutional Acts, such as the Patriot Act, the myrid of regulations, subsidies and patronages that give this government powers to abuse for its own benefit.  

There should not only be a repeal of such Amendments, acts and regulations, but there should be an Amendment added, which would, in effect, eliminate the federal employee status of both Senators and Representatives, making them instead empolyees of their respective States. The States would determine the appropriate compensation and benefits, this would also give the States the ability to maintain a far greater control over the political powers of its Senators and Representatives. This would also provide a much better barrier to the influences of special interests and lobbyests. 

Obama is following what appears to be a predetermined script, he is lounging in the warm of power, the allure of its strength and the intoxication of its flavors, he is either blind to the consequences of his actions or he simply doesn't care.

It is long past time to reassert the Rightful place the Free, Sovereign and Independent States possess and perhaps that is where the battle should be fought from, perhaps that is the only place it can be fought from: The States.

WAIT....you mean Jeff Immelt, his right-hand man, isn't a union chairman?

Say it ain't so!

I said before he got elected that he was a sleazeball liar. I said "just wait, he's going to be just like Bush". Watch some documentaries on Barry at Harvard. The guy was not a liberal.

His time in Chicago was to blackify himself and get some street cred so that he would be an easy sell to liberals later on.

I said before the election and I say now....where is this "Green Economy"?  If you couldn't smell that as bullshit a mile away, then you need a new sniffer.

Gitmo? Still open. Troops in Iraq? Now in Afghanistan. $10 billion per month, more than Bush.

I learned the hard way with Clinton, politicians these days are all in bed with big money.

3rd parties are the way to go. I hope OWS produces one.

The only solution is grass roots politics. People need to get involved and not passively like watching videos of Scarlet Johansen saying "Yes we can".

You are assuming that Ron Paul will get to a ballot that will permit you to vote for him.

The parties control access to the ballot.

If the candidate does not pass the party machinery, the candidate goes nowhere.

If you want Ron Paul, you will have to fight for him at the Republican caucuses.

This is a task equal to cleaning out a clogged public toilet.

Makes it interesting, doesn't it, that Goldman Sachs and JPM have a monopoly on the capital markets both in information and trade execution, just as they have on money creation at the Fed and the treasury.

Remember back in ’09-the year Obama took office-when Jamie Dimon of JP MorganChase held a meeting of his board for the first time in the nation’s Capital on July 20, with special guest, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel?

Emanuel’s appearance then and now underscores the pull of Dimon and the big banks on the President. Robert Wenzel of EconomicPolicyJournal.com alleged at the time: Dimon, “who amid the disgrace of his industry, has emerged as President Obama’s favorite banker.”

“Who wants to be a trillionaire? I do…”

Excellent points, George. My comments regarding OWS:

The Occupy Wall Street protests are growing stronger and lefties from Obama to Pelosi to Soros want to be in the parade to hit the current financial system...

Oh wait! It’s the Democrats who control the presidency, and the Senate, and the appointments to the Supreme Court, and the appointments to the regulatory agencies. It's the Democrats who support Wall Street’s every whim!

That’s the problem for Rush Limbaugh and other Neocon Establishment broadcasters who label the Occupy Wall Street protesters hippies, racists (anti-Semites) and bums… they’d like to show this is a Democrat attempt to attack capitalism and Republicans. But, with the Obama Administration’s 100 percent surrender to the Bob Rubin Rothschild playbook, the Limbaugh Neocons are only proving what we’ve known all along. They’re for war and the money-printing machine that makes it possible.

If these Establishmentcasters don’t like the OWStreeters, who do these big government conservatives like? The neocons (former Democrat Trotskyites such as Bill Kristol who took over the Republican Party leadership to solidify a One-Party System in DC that supports Israel, War and Empire)? Or, hey, maybe they do like how Wall Street works these days.  Maybe they do like the financial nobility.  Maybe they do like Goldman Sachs. Maybe they do like lobbyist-controlled elections.

Otherwise, wouldn’t they like to occupy Wall Street, too?

Is anyone dumb enough to think otherwise? He supports it because he plans to co-opt it and bend the stupidest of them to his will. Remember it's the only thing he knows how to do. This whole thing will be the core of the Democrat "grass roots" movement by mid next year. I know this for a fact. It is very easy to infiltrate any presidential campaign and see what they are planning. They were planning it before you ever heard of OWS. Just like the Repubs had their talons in the Tea Party very early on. There is a reason they call the sheeple "useful idiots".

This is exactly why we need as much Libertarian presence at OWS as possible.  Like you said, the stupidest will fall for Obama.  The smartest won't.  Add the smartest Lefties and the Smartest Righties, and then they will not be able to co-opt OWS.  This is exactly why the only way to make the world better is to not be divided and conquered.  I've been telling people in both right and left groups on the internet for months now.  I know the Lefties can be talked into wanting to end the Fed.  Many are not there yet, but hey the Fed is private control of our money printing.  It doesn't seem like too leftist an idea to me.  We can still win some major gains in this if we are not divided.

The OWS protesters who are taking the socialist bent (which seems to be an increasing number) will support Obama.  They are not particularly interested in digging beneath the surface - talking points and socialist demagoguery will suffice for them.  The OWS protestors who have correctly fingered the Fed and the bailouts as the problem will not be so easy to convince.

Meanwhile, we will probably get Romney from the Republican side.  He will be relatively easy to link to the establishment and to Wall Street.  He will not inspire OWS or any other voters of his ability to affect the needed change.

I hope I am wrong, but, in the end, I think we will end up with an establishment puppet in either case.  Either a completely clueless huckster in the case of Obama or a somewhat competent centrist in the case of Romney.

Either will be completely overwhelmed by the cascading depression that is about to envelop them.

Occupy The FED & Withdraw Your Money From TBTF Banks

Why do the American people stand by a CENTRAL BANK; the Federal Reserve? It is owned by the banks themselves charging us interest on every dollar in circulation. The Founding Fathers fought the revolution to free us from this model of DEBT SLAVERY ECONOMICS! Their clear intent, as set forth in the Constitution was; the nations currency is to be issued by the government with no interest attached? The governments issuance of currency is the very definition of sovereignty. To do otherwise is to relinquish our rights as a free people. Is it any wonder we find ourselves where we are today? END THE FED - Inflection Point
