“Within six months of Obama’s inauguration”
Allan Weisbecker puts Obama to the test
From Weisbecker’s periodic mass-email:
… I’m curious to know if I’m correct in my assessment of these matters, so I’ll make a few predictions; down the line we’ll see how it goes:
1. Obama will be elected. (Right: Not a very long limb on this one.)
Going further, though: If there is no attempt, or only a faint-hearted one, by the Republicans to steal the election, this would be an indication that Obama is Wall Street’s choice. (Which would tend to verify all my assertions.)
We’ll have to keep an eye on Greg Palast’s reporting on this; Palast broke the stories of the thefts of the 2000 and 2004 elections (google him or read his book, Armed Madhouse).
Note: I really can’t lose in the above, since a McCain victory would mean another stolen election, which itself would mean we do not live in a democracy, which in turn is what I’ve been trying to tell you for some time. Okay. All right.
2. Within six months of Obama’s inauguration, there will be a crisis, contrived or instigated by elements of the U.S. government, although it will not appear so.
My fear is that it will be a false flag terrorist incident like 9/11, perpetrated to rationalize martial law. (Might the declaration of martial law be the tough and unpopular decision Biden and Powell spoke of?) A nuclear event is the worst case scenario, possibly detonated from the hold of a ship on the East Coast. (One thing in our favor is that – according to a Scripts Howard University poll – 36% of Americans know that 9/11 was an inside job. This might scare them off.)
Other scenarios include incidents meant to rationalize war with Iran or an expansion of U.S. imperialism in the Middle East or the Balkans. A contrived conflict with Russia or China is even possible. (A good example of media disinformation is the blatant lie that Russia, unprovoked, invaded Georgia in early August. The fact is that it was Georgia who was the aggressor, almost certainly at the behest of the Bush Administration. This is an indication that conflict with Russia is in the offing.)
3. Obama’s actions in his first six months as president should be a giveaway as to whether or not his motives are pure (he is who he says he is), or if he indeed is a Wall Street puppet. Here are some of the actions he should take if the former is the case:
a) Reinstate the writ of habeas corpus, which guarantees a person (a ‘person’ says the Constitution, not just a citizen) the right to face his accuser in a court of law.
b) Related to the above: Abrogate the ‘enemy combatant’ legislation, which likewise is a blatant affront to the spirit and letter of the First Amendment.
c) Rescind the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive of May 2007, which declares that in the event of a “catastrophic event”, the president can become what is best described as “a dictator”:
“The President shall lead the activities of the Federal Government for ensuring constitutional government.”
— This legislation effectively turns the whole constitution into… a joke.
d) Speaking of jokes, albeit bad ones, there’s the Military Commissions Act, which includes the above writ of habeas corpus travesty. It should be rescinded within six months of an Obama presidency. This act, with its Orwellian wording and when taken en toto is perhaps the scariest piece of legislation even imaginable.
e) Abrogate the establishment of Northcom, which in effect gives the military the authority to police us. This is in direct violation of the Posse Comitatus Act.
In case you don’t know: Northcom has recalled from combat duty in Iraq a full brigade (5,000 troops) to assist, if needed, in ‘civil unrest’ and ‘crowd control’ on U.S. soil.
If the image of a few thousand wild-eyed, battle fatigued, pissed off grunts patrolling your neighborhood doesn’t make you nervous, I would submit that nothing will. Good for you.
f) Rescind the Executive order that authorizes torture in the interrogation of ‘enemy combatants’.
Keep in mind that Bush has given the president the authority to label any U.S. citizen, i.e., you, an enemy combatant (google ‘Jose Padilla’).
g) Rescind the legislation authorizing eavesdropping on U.S. citizens, another clear and blatant violation of our Constitution.__h) Obama should (at the very least) ask for an amendment to the bail out legislation that will make the actions of the Treasury Department transparent, and, more importantly, make legally responsible those who are, in my words, looting the Treasury.
I could of course go on.
I could point out that Obama – if he truly believes in rule of law – would demand a special prosecutor to bring to justice George W. Bush, for war crimes, among other felonies. (Keep in mind that Clinton was impeached for blow job-related crimes.)
My point, in case you forgot: If Obama is who he says he is, if he has our interest at heart, he would do all of the above within six months of January 21, 2009 (my birthday!).
I predict he won’t.
Too much to ask, you say? Meaning that he get all that done in six months.
I predict he will not do even one of the above. Not one.
Okay. Most blabbermouths don’t hang themselves out there with specific predictions. At least you can’t say that about this blabbermouth.
On a lighter note!
Some Canadian merry pranksters phone-called Sarah Palin, claiming to be the president of France offering his support and hoping he and Palin will someday go hunting together because ‘killing all those animals is great fun.’ It’s hilarious and instructive regarding candidates for president in the U.S. as the puppets of behind the scenes forces.
