The Obama Deception

To get the economy back on track, will President Barack Obama have to break his pledge not to raise taxes on 95 percent of Americans? In a “This Week” exclusive, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner told me, "We’re going to have to do what’s necessary.”

Geithner was clear that he believes a key component of economic recovery is deficit reduction. When I gave him several opportunities to rule out a middle class tax hike, he wouldn’t do it.

“We have to bring these deficits down very dramatically,” Geithner told me. “And that’s going to require some very hard choices."
George Stephanopoulos Aug 2, 2009


Back on November 1, 2008, I published my endorsement of Barack Obama for President. To say I have been disappointed would be a gross understatement. My previous political cynicism, which I thought was slayed and erased by Obama's candidacy, has returned with a vengeance. Like a Swine Flu virus temporarily muted by the vaccine of the moment, my political atheism has mutated once again and this time the result is a complete obliteration of faith in political leadership.

It's not that I retract my endorsement, or that I would now have voted for John McCain, electing Obama was good for our country in narrowly defined ways, good for the global community as well, but he has revealed himself to be just one more in a long line of lying, deceiving, incompetent political hacks.

Obama ran on the promise to end the war in Iraq and bring our troops home in 16 months after he took office, by May 20, 2010. Instead, he has acted to just bring some of the troops home by August 31, 2010. Not a big deal? Say that to the soldiers who are slain or maimed between May and August of 2010, or to those who will be part of Obama's "residual force" of 50,000 troops who will be staying until December, 2011.

In Afghanistan Obama has embraced George Bush's indefinite occupation policy as well as the extension of that war into Pakistan.

Similarly, Obama is defending and even expanding the Bush administration’s war-on-terrorism powers, which have constituted among the greatest infringements on civil liberties and privacy in our nation’s history.

Obama ran on a clearly anti-Washington establishment platform, promising an administration of new names and faces, non-Washington insiders who have not already been corrupted by an incestuous political system. What the country got instead was a rehash of past administrations, heavily weighted toward Bill Clinton's political machine and leading off with the Secretary of State of Lies and Deceit, Hillary Clinton.

On the domestic side of the ledger, Obama has carried over the Goldman Sachs cartel to run our economy. He has rubber-stamped an unprecedented transfer of wealth, not from the rich to the poor, but from the rich, the poor, the middle class, i.e. everyone, to a handful of both visible and invisible financial institutions across the globe, i.e. The Bilderberg Group.

Which brings me back to the opening quote above from George Stephanopoulos. During the campaign, Obama's two most visible and persuasive promises were to end the war in Iraq and in his read my lips no new taxes mantra, a tax cut for 95% of American taxpayers.

Now this morning we have his Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, a former Bush hack, golden boy of Henry Kissenger, Robert Rubin, Lawrence Sommers, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Bilderberg Group, The Federal Reserve and everybody's favorite scumbag, Henry Paulson, opening the door to raise taxes on everything and everybody with or without a pulse.

"We're going to have to do what's necessary."

"Some very hard choices."

In other words, assume the position.

I 'm attaching a video that is making the rounds on the Internet, starting out on the kooky conspiracy sites and is now slowing gaining access to mainstream commentary.

It's thesis:

Is Obama just a puppet for Wall Street interests? What is his agenda if it isn't the one he claims to have? If the president isn't directing the country, then who's in the driver's seat?

The Obama Deception is a video that looks into these questions, and claims that the ones who are actually in power are people who avoid the spotlight. Obama himself is nothing more than a pretty face to put on an ugly agenda.

I don't know how far I am willing to go with this kind of paranoia. Where is the line between delusion and insight? Is there a thread between November 22, 1963 and September 11, 2001? Does the Patriot Act rise to the level of a Constitutional Amendment?

Is Barack Obama a global phenonomom of a freedom and change, or just another brick in the wall?

Obama is worse then Bush, Bush never knew better...

Obama is more dangerous, more capable of evil because people seem to trust him more...

Ron Paul and Dennis Kusinich must be quietly smirking...."we told you so...."

What a tragedy...

regarding the Priory of Sion, The Bilderberg Group are babes in the woods in comparison. How can anyone think that any president is calling the shots. After all the out in the open fraud by the banks, the FED, and Goldman Sachs, you really think Obama has much control over policy?

Allan, congratulations on very accurate and brave comments. Hope all this political mess will be cleared during Political Shift sometime around 2012 as Martin Armstrong predicts . But probably there will never be justice as far as power of money engulfs the minds of most influencial people. When this system collapes the new one will be no better.

Sorry but it's too late. You pathetic Earthlings do not deserve pity or salvation. We have taken over Bilderberg and The Priory and will destroy all Earthlings at $%^#&** on Tuesday, August &*^&*, 2009. (Where is that static coming from?)

Yours Truly,

Very good....to see another truth seeker waking up to the hidden reality... I think 'the obama deception' is right on target. nothing else to say about it. people ought to know by now...the U.S. president has been a puppet for the Real Powers in Charge Behind the Scenes....since...study the hidden history,now becoming less hidden....the assaination of ,wait for it, Kennedy ? ...no, ...Lincoln.....go back further to the beginning of the story, to Andrew Jackson, opposing the establishment of the 'Foreign (british/zionist/rothschild banking economic war power' that was waging economic war against the USA since 1812...and finally won that war in 1913...assainating Lincoln,Garfield,Mc Kinley,and Kennedy along the way. .... so the story goes... and now it moves forward on its plan to create the Whole World Order under its control....but to achieve it,must complete the process of destroying the world economy in order to ... re create the One They Want.
Maybe the timing will co incide with the great Mayan Calendar date of 2012.... its interesting stuff.
I think the really smart american citizens are the ones who are emigrating Out now.
If I was young and spoke Portugese,I would try to move to Brazil.

My Dear Allan,

You are so political!

Typo - read by lips.

There is no fine line between delusion and insight - it's a Lissajous Curve.

Looking forward to a return to reading your regular Sunday meditations and personal reflections. Isn't the name of this place All Allan?

How can you be surprised that democrats are going to raise taxes? I've been plugging what was originally the Hillary Portfolio when she was thought likely to be our next Maximum Leader: gold and short term munis is the bill, my lad. Forget stocks and stuff that adds to the economy and will pay high taxes. We have a gobblemint to provide whatever we need.

'OMG what have we become'

Perhaps one should ask, What have we been? still, IMO, the validity of an on going conspiracy has been made clear by the out in the open fraud by banks via the Fed. Under the radar for most due to living out a life so full of fear or greed few pay attention to the real issues.

Thanks Allan! First very brave of you to put out a post like this. Secondly, thank you for providing a different perspective, which otherwise I most likely would not have heard about. While I think there are a lot of truths to what was presented in the video clip, I still believe that there is global warming. Also, while I do think that a lot of what was said is true, I hope its wrong.

I also do think the market will crash in the near term and have moved 80% into of portfolio's into cash. Again, I hope you are wrong and I am wrong.

Thanks Allan!
Ron

It's All relevant. Trying to understand investing markets while turning a blind eye to the corruption of the rigged game controlled by the Power Elite,a game that is just a small piece of the Global Strategy ,yields one a very short sighted frame of mind and the lack of vision will certainly lead to wrong investments,wrong timing, and much pain and loss.
The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know and how much I still need to learn. and everything I learn helps my investing vision.

Thanks Allan. I was wondering how you thought he was doing given your prior endorsement. Unfortunately, Change has not come to America. Keep up the good work!

Imagine playing the world's tiniest violin -- that is how I hear this post. Get real. How do you expect ANYONE to be able to lead without the tools of deception, lies, deal making, etc....aka POLITICS!

Conspiracy! Deception! An imposed New World Order on the People, for the People and by the People? This is ancient history! This storyline has been around for centuries. It's well documented and available in several languages in both hard cover and paperback editions. It's been on the #1 best seller list longer than most and has sold millions if not billions of copies. Read "Revelations", the last chapter in a series of short story books, authored by a visionary who had a gift peek as to where our destiny really lies. He gives his eyewitness accounts as to what is and will be occurring in the days ahead, along with precise descriptions of prophecies that lead up to what is being called a "Second Coming Event". He authenticates the entity who holds the power and authority over the world, though challenged, ultimaely will hold it for eternity.

Huh? Maybe it's pure coincidence that the fall in price on the S&P 500 just happened to end at the number 666!

I think history will be on the side of Obama. Revenue has to cover the defecit hence taxes. I think we can all put in our fair share.

Allan, what gave you this idea last year, "Obama ran on a clearly anti-Washington establishment platform..." Nothing about Obama supported your belief that he was anti-establishment.

I like your financial thoughts, but you were snowed on the political campaigns. Wow.
If you wanted the troops home you could have supported Ron Paul. Really, Ron Paul was vocal about it.

Maybe now you would like to look at Peter Schiff or Rand Paul or Adam Kokesh?

LET’S NOT BELIEVE THE DOUBLE-SPEAK FROM THE W.H.

Obama is not much different from Bush. Neither understand much about economics.

Ignoring economic reality is more than simply idiotic. Unemployment is not dropping, and taxes for the middle class are going up.

Kay, well what bugs me about "The Obama Depception" is that when I went onto there website "www.infowars.com" I was reading a few of their articles and I noticed that hardly any of there so called "facts" about Obamas agenda and what he's doing wasn't backed up by any hard evidence. Most of the articles seemed to just be making stuff up as they go along. Also its only one man with one website who came up with "The Obama Deception", soooo why should we believe just one man? And Im not saying that its not true or that it is true but it does seem just like an Obama Hater whos taken some things out of proportion.
