During a speech at Hampton University in Virginia, Obama griped about blogs and talk radio. The anointed one said “some of the craziest claims can quickly claim traction” on the internet. “All of this is not only putting new pressures on you, it is putting new pressures on our country and on our democracy.”
Crazy claims? Like UFOs and Big Foot? No, crazy claims like the fact a cartel of international bankers control the banking system, the corporate media (where real distractions such as perverted football players predominate), and the educational institution where Obama delivered his speech.
“With iPods and iPads and Xboxes and PlayStations — none of which I know how to work — information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment, rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation,” Obama said.
Obama said the alternative media does not have the best interests of the people at heart. “What Jefferson recognized… that in the long run, their improbable experiment — called America — wouldn’t work if its citizens were uninformed, if its citizens were apathetic, if its citizens checked out, and left democracy to those who didn’t have the best interests of all the people at heart.”
Thomas Jefferson was opposed to democracy. “A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine,” he said.
Obama understands America was established as a constitutional republic (he is after all supposedly a constitutional scholar). Democracy as defined by our rulers and the corporate media is preferred because it tricks citizens into voting for their own slavery and impoverishment. Obama urged students in Virginia to ignore the truth-seekers and embrace the corporate Borg collective.
Mob rule “could only work if each of us stayed informed and engaged, if we held our government accountable, if we fulfilled the obligations of citizenship,” Obama declared.
In other words, each of us must believe the lies and fairy tales spun by the government propaganda media masquerading as a free press and become “engaged” in a political process that invariably produces the same result every four years, as insider Carroll Quigely noted. Government is not accountable to the people. It is accountable to bankers and corporatists (who Mussolini defined as fascists).
“You’re coming of age in a 24/7 media environment that bombards us with all kinds of content and exposes us to all kinds of arguments, some of which don’t always rank all that high on the truth meter,” Obama said.
Only the government version of the truth meter is worthy of consideration, according to Obama and his speech writers.
Obama also said resistance to globalism is futile. “We can’t stop these changes… but we can adapt to them,” Obama said, adding that “US workers were in a battle with well-educated foreign workers,” according to AFP.
If Obama was sincerely interested in telling the truth, he would have pointed out that these “well-educated foreign workers” (many educated in the United States) are essentially slave labor drones living under authoritarian regimes established and encouraged by the global elite. Bankster David Rockefeller, after all, praised the butcher Mao Tse-tung who slaughtered over 40 million people. Rockefeller idealized the “national harmony” (slaves obeying dictators) of China and said Mao’s murder campaign was worth it.
For the elite, this “battle” between U.S. workers and Chinese slaves comes down to one thing — college graduates and workers will have to accept diminished expectations and lower standards of living in the Brave New World now unfolding. Fed mob boss Bernanke admitted as much the other day when he said money does not ensure happiness. He meant to say Americans will have to adapt to life with less money and dismal standards of living as the bankers consolidate their wealth and steal everything that is not nailed down.
Obama’s speech today reeked of desperation. The “pressure” he eluded to is the pressure of political reality as defined by the patriot and Tea Party movements. Obama and his handlers know that come November the Tea Party movement will displace a large number of One Party political hacks and grocery clerks. The process of taking the government back from the elite and their hand-picked political class opportunists and careerists has begun. It will not be rolled back by speeches delivered by the teleprompter reader Obama.
We live in dangerous times. The globalists will not settle for admonitory speeches delivered to captive college graduates (who will soon discover reality first-hand as they attempt to find careers), but will use more draconian methods to secure their hold on power.
It is not yet clear what these draconian methods will be but we will almost certainly find out before November.
