As the following article by Ralph Nader succinctly itemizes, Obama's senate record does not reflect "a decent man". It reflects a deeply conservative opportunist dedicated to maintaining the status quo, who supported the worst crimes and abuses of Bush's administration, and did NOT align himself with those "decent" men and women who opposed them. To expect his political character to radically change just because he has been elected president, is wishful thinking.
On the other hand, anybody who had opposed the Bush team over the past 8 years would have had ZERO chance of running for president, much less getting elected.
I agree with Laura. If anyone wishes to become POTUS, they need to ally with evildoers, whether Zionists or other. A decent man refusing to do so would simply not make it that far. A decent and smart man may. Unfortunately, I think that even if Obama is decent and smart, he won't be able to do any good with the pressure of the system. And if he crosses a certain line, he'll suffer JFK's luck. That is, of course, assuming that he is actually decent, which is something that is yet to be seen. We won't know until he actually starts doing stuff, because right now all he can do is talk and make promises, and words are blown by the wind.
Well, as SAO said, there is a fine line between "strategic enclosure" and "the Mask of Sanity".
It could also be that the ptb learned their lessons as well and perfected the puppet that is supposed to push the agenda.
It also may be the case that Obama is neither a psychopath, nor a decent person, but simply so mind controlled that he says exactly what the masses want to hear, yet his allegiance is elsewhere. Kinda like a Manchurian candidate. What do we really know about Obama's past? Where did he come from? It seemed he appeared out of nowhere....who were/are his mentors and supporters?
Anart also mentioned in a past post that this is not 1961 anymore, which I think we should keep mind. Personally I think the JFK comparison is a bit rooted in wishful thinking, but that is just my personal view. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt that Obama my be a "JFK", however 47 years later it seems that the forces controlling this world seem to have "evolved" in their measures of control as well, perfecting the idea of "people building their own prison out of free will", which we see very well in the New Age Movement.
"New Agers" in particular rave about Obama. Living in California, with Obama parties all over the place since the elections, the whole Obama hype is rather disturbing to me. It doesn't seem like "hope", but more wishful thinking with a high level of anticipation and not much critical thinking. More emotional projections based on the slogans of "Hope", "Change" and "We can!!".
Any time I say anything against Obama or simply state that we should be more careful before getting excited too quick, I'm being told that I'm just negative and a pessimist, that I should watch "my thoughts and use the momentum to create something positive". All kinds of "channellings" have appeared over the past year that pushed Obama as a "Light Worker" as PopHistorian has showed us too. That alone are some red flags in my eyes. Next thing you know he'll be on Oprah and teach "The Secret" to the masses.
I've always thought that democracy is the best way to control the people if you can shape and control the people's beliefs, give them options and control all sides of them, especially if there are only TWO. Apart from that it also seems that government has never really been in place for the people by the people, but it is mere a control system for the elite to keep the power and wealth to a few. Frank Zappa used to say :" Government is the entertainment division of the military industrial complex". And let's not forget the 4D STS empire behind all this.
Also, I still get the impression that the main plan was to bring McCain/Palin into power, but that they miscalculated. The reason I think so is that up to the very day of the election, much of the US media was still leaning against Obama, and before that, there was much serious manipulation to stop him. He wasn't just clapped into power.
You see, I'm not sure about that. The more I reflect on it, the more I see Obama as the calculated move here. It was basically a slam dunk. No problem at all. Almost too easy how fast he got declared president. But who knows? Maybe it was a miscalculation, but the "Obama team" may also not be in place "for the people".
In regards to "strategic enclosure" vs "the Mask of Sanity", as everyone agreed here on the forum anyway:
We'll have to wait and observe.
However, some of the main issues Obama supports so far are major lies that have cost millions of lives and suffering world wide, namely the war on terror, the 9/11 lie, the Al Qaida scam and support of Israel. Will he make a 180 degree turn on these issues? If he's truly a decent man, how much more will he feed the crocodiles and sacrifice more lives for his supposedly "in cover hero" role?
Not too long ago, he made his stance clear on theses issues, including a threat before he ever got elected:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw2XTC1V4fk
Liar, hero, strategic enclosure, the "perfected" mask of sanity or a Manchurian Candidate?
Time will tell.....
