John Adams spoke for many: “The nation which will not adopt an equilibrium of power must adopt a despotism. There is no other alternative.”
Madison wrote, “There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

The three domains of power—the warlords, the corporation chieftains, the political directorate—tend to come together, to form the power elite of America.

How exactly did the United States “become the scene of one of the most hideously bedeviled conflicts of all time?” asked New York University literature professor Carol Iannone. Quite simply, it happened because America lost its grasp of its own historic character, and embraced “diversity” as a national goal. In the name of equality and nondiscrimination we invited mass immigration from every part of the globe, and made no demands on the newcomers to become Americans. In fact, we gave up our American core, adopted multiculturalism and declared all cultures equal. We invited the new groups to celebrate themselves while we cravenly permitted libelous denigration of our own past.
Like fools we prated that diversity is our strength, when common sense and all of history tell us that strength comes from unity. Absolute nondiscrimination meant we no longer enforced standards, made judgments, distinguished between good and evil, friend and foe. We grew lazy, stupid and careless—about our borders, about national security, even about previous terrorist attacks against us. We worried over our “hate crimes” and our “racial profiling,” while men resided in our midst who seethed with murderous fury even against our children and plotted our destruction.

The American people, guided and prodded by the “establishment” propaganda machinery elected this mysterious person, with no real established experience except the total fabricated hype stuffed into our minds, not once, but twice. He was a total “wag the dog” Potemkin Village, an empty facade supported by a political, financial and corporate elite that are now, finally abandoning him to move on to whatever is planned next for the rapidly disintegrating American Empire. And planned it is.
Regardless of how Obama became the 44th President, even without considering the more sinister, insidious covert beliefs out there, there can be no doubt that it was a well orchestrated process from the very start with the full backing of the corporate media, finance and the “hidden state.” It is equally obvious that the powers that dictate the consensus group thinking of the American mind are now abandoning him.
A process perhaps accelerated by his extraordinary and very dangerous narcissism. Dangerous to the nation is of little consequence, as danger and fear are the tools of the powerful, but more importantly, dangerous to the planned processes anticipated for the next phase of the American corporatist-statist police state enslavement. The vale of illusion can never be allowed to be pulled back to far. That which is hidden must remain so.
Obama, appears to be becoming a bit of wild card falling off of the reservation, so to speak, and perhaps dancing to the sounds of his own uncontrollable hubris. We may be in deeper, far more turbulent waters than even those few that are half aware of the machinations of reality. A reality we are assiduously programmed not to see. Planned chaos is not just coming, it is already here.
During his eight-year career in the Illinois state senate, Barack Obama avoided making controversial votes approximately 130 times — which, according to other Illinois state senators, is much higher than average. Rather than vote “yea” or “nay” on the legislation in question, Obama on those occasions simply voted “present.” In the Illinois state senate, this was the equivalent of a “nay” vote when tallying up support or opposition to a given bill. But, as David Freddoso points out:
“[F]or rhetorical purposes, a ‘present’ vote is different in that critics and journalists must discuss it differently. For example, Barack Obama did not vote against a bill to prevent pornographic book and video stores and strip clubs from setting up within 1,000 feet of schools and churches — he just voted ‘present.’ Obama voted ‘present’ on an almost unanimously passed bill to prosecute students as adults if they fire guns on schol grounds. He voted ‘present’ on the partial-birth abortion ban and other contentious issues …”
