MY ASSESSMENT OF THE 2012 UNITED STATES PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
By Fahim A. Knight-El
The Invisible Rulers have spoken by ‘reselecting’ President Obama to continue being their servant for the next four years. Some would immediately take issue with me using the term ‘selected’ because they have seen that President Obama had won the popular vote and won the electoral college vote (in their Sheepel minds it was their/our voting that reseated President Obama as commander-in-chief) this is the furthest thing from the truth. His selection is evidence that he did a very good job as a loyal servant and his continuation in the Oval Office is his reward (President Obama is a loyal, but is a dangerous puppet to the interest of the masses). Many African American voters in this 2012 presidential election came out in record numbers in which President Obama captured over 93% of the black vote, 71% of the Latino vote and 45% of the Caucasian vote. May be these numbers should require him to be more politically respectful to his most loyal base by being more accountable to them. No doubt President Obama put together a masterful plan to defeat Mitt Romney and just imagine a lobbyist like Karl Rove and the Super Pacs spent anywhere from 300 million to 1 billion dollars to defeat President Obama and they lost dismally. It surely would take more money than that to defeat the Rothschilds and Rockefellers—Fort Knox does not have enough money to outspend nor out influence the real Super Pacs who are the Invisible International Bankers and for this election they put their money behind President Obama.
Obama’s constituents were not concern about his foreign policy record, but to their credit many did understand that he inherited an induced bankrupt government from the mess that George W. Bush had created. Yet, they also saw Congressman John Boehner and Congressman Mitch McConnell as mean spirited hypocrites who were part of the Congress that allowed Bush to heighten the national deficit and showed no fiscal restraints and had created huge tax incentives for the rich and wealth-holders of the United States to the detriment of the poor. Many Americans since 2008 have personally felt the pain of the wealth disparity and just could not imagine turning this country back over to a John Wayne style government. Their (Romney and the good ole boys) only response to resolving America’s economic woes was centered on further assaulting the poor and middle class and giving the wealthy a blank check (no pun intended). The American people with this presidential election saw through this false blame game and many are asking the same question, why cannot the wealthy bear more of the responsibility?
Just as in 2008 they were still cheering for America's first black president and they felt that their immediate future would be better off under an Obama led administration than the Republican Mitt Romney. I initially thought that the enthusiasm that he had garnished four years ago had waned and that many did not see the progressive change which he so eloquently articulated as candidate Barack Obama in 2008 and that there were going to be a political backlash for his failure to deliver on the change that he promised the American people. I know in North Carolina the right was using some ignorant black preachers to theologically whip their black congregants into not voting for President Obama because of his position on same sex marriages whether I agree or disagree with LGBT agenda, but what gets me the most is using that damn Bible to control and manipulate people’s fears. It was a shrewd strategy in particular in the Bible belt south where I live. These black and white folk are crazy over the Bible—yet Sunday morning still remains one of the most segregated days in America..
I also think that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and the conservative right scared the hell out of most sensible American people with their fiscal outcast, but wasn't willing to impose any new taxes on the wealthy by mandating that they pay a higher percentage tax rate in order to generate more revenue for state and federal government and to relieve some of economic tension. This election should be looked at as referendum that turned back two candidates and a party that are insensitive to the 'Have nots'; that 47% that Governor Romney so eloquently condemned as looking for government handouts and stated that they would not be his focus (however on election night they made him their focus by turning him back). Yes, I understood black people’s euphoria (I as a so-called African American could totally relate to their experience and their love and commitment to President Obama). I stayed up on election night watching the results come in. Thus, my wife and daughter went on to sleep, but I wanted to see and hear the end results for myself. But remember I had been telling those on this Blog that President Barack Obama had already been 'selected' for a second presidential term; this decision was decided long before any electoral ballots were cast.
However, like some, I was cheering for President Obama, perhaps because of being part of a marginalized people as well as, being part of a subjugated and oppressed class of people, which on election night this historical and cultural phenomenon had created strange bedfellows (me and Obama on the same team); although, I know the truth (meaning our vote do not mean a damn thing) to be quite honest my emotions got the best of me for that moment, but I immediately came to my senses with the understanding that nothing was going to change and that it was going to be business as usual. I still felt good inside knowing that this African American brother will get a second term in spite of American style racism. Those who are not African American and do not share our collective experience will never understand what it means for a people to rise from the ashes as the Phoenix Bird and now one of them sit as the president of the most powerful nation on earth. Many Blacks over 50 years of age did not believe in their lifetime that they would live to see a Black U.S. president. However, I think we have put more in the perceived symbolism of Obama’s two elections and have paid little attention to the substance of his domestic and foreign policy and it’s this variable that makes us prime targets for the duping.
But most Blacks (and for the matter most people from around the globe in general) do not know or understand that President Obama is a pawn for the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg and Trilateral Commission—they are the true global agenda setters. These Power Elite Groups are not illusions; these are real people that rule the world within well structured organizations that influence U.S. Politics and world affairs. This is not some conspiracy theory, but everything that I have written can be verified and has been proven by others who specialize in decoding the Invisible Rulers plots. Most people have yet to realize and do not know there are some serious problems with our so-called democracy. Whether it was Obama or Romney overseeing the White House, it really would not have mattered because someone more powerful than they will be pulling the purse strings and dictating how our government will move. Furthermore, critical analysis is very much needed in our nation in particular when all our news is sanitized by the corporate media and they constantly feed us propaganda, which contributes to the ‘dumbing’ down process and most of all keeping us under control. I have no trust or faith in politicians this includes President Obama, he is really not our guy and I do not care about his charisma and charm or given the impression that he is sensitive to our causes in the long run he has an agenda that must be carried out. We so-called live in a free society in which this allows me and others the privilege to expose some of the things that you will not read about in the mainstream media.
President Obama in less than four years through a campaign of master lies and deceptions and with brut military enforcement has delivered the Invisible Rulers almost the entire North African region and in lieu of these events one must come to the understanding that the assassination of United States Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens in Benghazi was expendable and an inconsequential act in the grand scheme of so-called Middle Eastern politics. Although, the last time that I fact checked my geography Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, etc., sits on the continent of Africa. The CIA staged the coup in Libya against the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and it was the United States Government who was behind the political uprising that took place in Libya against Colonel Muammar Qaddafi. They had been seeking Qaddafi’s removal from power since the early 1970s in which Qaddafi made tactical and strategic errors by accepting an olive branch from President George W. Bush in early 2003 and 2004 (this was the beginning of the setup and eventually would lead to his downfall).
The U.S. eventually lifted some of the embargoes and economic sanctions against Libya and invited Libya back into the diplomatic fold, which lured the revolutionary Qaddafi to sleep (credit Qaddafi’s assassination to President Barack Obama). And if you understood international politics, it was not about Qaddafi but it is was about the United States securing her future vital interest by overtaking the Libyan oil fields and for those who do not know that Africa is of strategic future interest to the U.S. (Europe and China) from a resource perspective. The continent of Africa will determine the global future balance of power in which the United States is fully aware of the importance of Africa and in order to remain and sustain themselves as a continued future world superpower they have a vested interest in controlling Africa. Therefore, the control of Tripoli looms high within that dynamic and President Obama has placed the United States in a good position to influence the oil and wealth of Libya, Africa for generations to come.
Obama even took care of one of America's long time puppets in former Egyptian President Honsi Mubarak and it will be U.S led influence and not the Muslim Brotherhood who will behind installing an even better and more loyal puppet regime in Egypt that will work even harder on securing the Israeli Borders from so-called Islamic terrorist crossing the borders of Egypt and entering into Israel (it is Israeli security that is the number one priority in that region and Middle Eastern stability is a distance second). President Obama allegedly assassinated Osama Bin-Laden (for those who are political astute and conscious know that the Bin-Laden’s assassination was a hoax because this man had been dead 6-8 years before the U.S. Government scenario played out in the media). The so-called number one world terrorist that for over a decade had an outstanding warrant over his head was not murdered by U.S. Navy Seals who allegedly violated the sovereignty of Pakistan by carrying out a U.S. led operation on Pakistani soil, which has so-called soured international relations between the two nations. President Obama even ordered drones to be flown into Yemen and assassinated Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki. These above events alone give President Barack Obama an impressive, but reactionary portfolio (make no mistake about it he is a cold blooded killer). He has accomplished feats that not even the warmonger George W. Bush could accomplished during his presidential tenure.
But I think since 9/11 there has been an established template and each president that would come after George Bush would be mandated to adhere and they have created a playbook for an entire system of "new normals". For example, we thought that it could not get any worst relative to the erosion of U.S. citizen’s civil liberties that came into the play with the passing of U.S. Patriot Act in 2001, which diminished the legal intent of the U.S. Constitution. However, the 'democratic' president Barack Obama and Congress on December 31, 2012 passed the reactionary National Defense Authorization Act, which makes the U.S. Patriot Act looks like child's play. I believe that the political agenda has already been set by the Invisible Rulers and Obama’s next four years has already been scripted. And I must submit to you that with his election nothing is going to change for the 'Have nots', because he just like Governor Romney will only be working in the interest of serving as a buffer between the Dynastic Families, the International Banking Houses and 'Have nots' (his mission will be to continue to keep the wealth safe guarded and secured in the hands of Dynastic Cabal and their front bankers on Wall Street).
I am just not optimistic about his reelection, because I know that all we did on November 6, 2012 by voting, was only a mere political pacification for the masses who still believe that we live in a democracy and if it is a democracy, I will feel more comfortable calling it a corporate democracy. America stands divided not merely based on politics or political differences—the division is rooted in racism and even in 2008 President Barack Obama tried to hail his 'election' to the highest office of the land as a representation of social progress, which signified a new era in Civil Rights, Human Rights and claimed that we had stepped in a new historical era of post-racial politics. His Handlers have always tried to present him as a neutral candidate and leader—in skin color and in his approach to politics (black politicians are the only ones who cannot show any open affinity towards their own black political base and constituency). I think initially that even President Obama himself thought that we had transitioned. Yes, I know what he meant as far as on the surface, but I will instruct him and all of America to go back to the electoral map and view those states below the Mason Dixie line that were classified as Red States and even to this day, the social-politics of these southern Red States are rooted in a segregationist history of the past. I will base what I perceive as social progress in the United States, only when I see these Red States begin to make visible social progress by breaking with a racial tradition of segregation and discrimination.
I was proud to see in 2008, that North Carolina and Virginia (and Romney barely won North Carolina in 2012) break ranks in these past two elections with the covert political ideology that has been steeped in the Old South Tradition. The U.S. Secret Service has not publically exposed the tons of assassination threats that have been made on President Obama’s life (often the motivation for these threats were not based on ideology or political differences, but about his race). President Obama and his family have been unjustly racially ridiculed and were even called a liar from the floor of Congress by the congressman Joe Wilson from South Carolina (what disrespect). When he was elected in 2008 immediately gun sells and ammunition sells skyrocketed and there has been a huge increase in white militia groups and even has been a resurgence in the Ku Klux Klan.
For example, and let me digress a bit in order to explain how racial double standards works in a society that was built on racism and injustice. Thus, you didn't hear the political pundits expose and demand that Governor Mitt Romney repudiate the Mormon (the Church of Latter Day Saints) and that is not to say that some writers and critics didn't talk about his association with this fringed religious organization (whom most sociologist would deem as a cult) and yet during Obama's first election in 2008, he was called to repudiate, condemn, and disassociate himself from Reverend Dr. Jeremiah Wright and Trinity United Church of Christ and were forced to disavow the theological teachings of Black Liberation Theology in order to appear more 'electable' as a black presidential candidate. This is an example of the power of racism and yet up until 1978, the Mormon Church taught an extreme version racial hatred aimed at African Americans and people of African descent. However, I do think the entire question and equation of race is instigated by external provocateurs and is given a premise to exist, which to divert attention from what is really going on and is designed to consume humanity in useless battles of artificial barriers (divide and conquer schemes). Since I know this and is very clear about this, perspective and motive, then it might appear as a contradiction to many of my readers who access my Keeping It Real Blog site, in particular only to see the number of Blogs that I have dedicated relative to the question of race and politics in the United States.
The psyche of black humanity in the U.S. was partially shaped by oppression and racism (I must admit to my readers that I to am a victim of this social history and my views will forever reflect that reality); these variables had deep and everlasting affects on the psychological and collective conscious of my people who were deemed Chattel Slaves (1555-1865). Thus, right after slavery the United States Supreme Court in 1896 passed Plessy Versus Ferguson decision (Separate, But Equal), which issued in Jim Crow laws and legal segregation. This period lasted until 1954 (Brown V. The Board of Education) until the High Court struck down Plessy V. Ferguson and declared Separate but Equal as being unconstitutional. This social and political history created a political and social dichotomy in America—blacks were never accepted as "full Americans" and have always been orchesterized for embracing nationalism. Dr. W.E.B. Dubois wrote about this in his book titled, “Souls of Black Folk”.
So, Black Liberation Theology evolved out of a need for blacks to reaffirm their religious identity in the same way there was a need to re-affirm their "Americanism" by forcing America to live up to its creed as it was written in the language given in the United States Constitution. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. socially agitated and this led to the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act. These were necessary steps to ensure that the question of race did not enter into the legality of this democracy and our jurisprudence system needed to reflect these measures. But it does not matter how much you legislate, you can not dictate or control people and individuals attitudes—group norms, folkways, mores, values, etc. The culture of racism has become entrenched in the U.S. and even in the Christian and religious doctrines of America. The religious teachings, images, symbolism, etc., reflected the dominant culture and Black Liberation Theology articulated by James Cone, Cecil Cone, Gayraud Stephen Wilmore and others sought to balance this equation.
