Obama Keep Power By Any Means Necessary?

has been raised a vast number of times since LBJ.
the crucial reality of power at the top of the U.S.
have long been front men for the vast military, secret police, government
bureaucracies, big corps.....Reagan was the beginning of the obvious
Actor-Lip-Synching-Presidents. [JFK and Nixon were probably eliminated
by the CIA et al. because they insisted on pursuing Detente with
the Soviets in reality, rather than as mere rhetoric for the Mass-Mediated
Dunces. That enraged the CIA and other Brass. Ford went along. Carter
was kind of out of it and irrelevant.] Since Reagan, all have been
acting their parts, Clinton and Obama brilliantly, except Bush 1
who was the Director of the CIA and all the Secret Government in
the White House. Iran-Contra was a tip of the iceberg of the Secret
Coup In The White House, in that case obviously run by admirals
and colonels under Bush 1.
Obama or Romney
would probably love to become America's Augustus, maybe even the
first American Hitler, but the decision is not theirs to make. Gen.
Petraeus was the head of Centcom in the Middle East, all U.S. forces
in the area, when the top staff officers of his field commander
in charge of all of their Army forces in Afpak, Gen. McChrystal,
made derisive fun of the Obama crew's ignorance and abilities in
an interview published in Rolling Stone. This extreme insubordination
had to be dealt with. McChrystal was allowed to retire, but the
buck stopped with him. Petraeus was appointed downward to fill McChrystal's
subordinate position, which gave the appearance of being a a bit
of a wood-shed punishment, perhaps. He announced idealistic plans
to avoid civilian killings, but the slaughter went on and drones
soon extended their blatant killing of civilians in Pakistan. The
U.S. continued losing the war in Afghanistan at an accelerating
rate, but the buck stopped below Petraeus,as usual. He had become
a Teflon General in a war the U.S. was losing to peasants armed
with little more than old rifles and a few explosives.
decided it was time to get out of Afpak before he got stigmatized
as the Westmoreland of Afpak, The Loser. Do you know where he is
now? Living in the glory and secret power, very quietly, as The
Director of the CIA. I suspect he is our Augustus, a very quiet
dictator among quasi-equals at the top of a vast Secret Government
in which the people at the top never admit their mistakes and take
no blame, so there is no negative feedback for their insane mistakes.
They smile in the pictures, pretend all is coming up roses with
no thorns, and blissfully continue to wreck havoc on us and the
still needs Americans to believe that the old bottle of the Constitution
– the external forms – they have preserved are the reality, that
America is still a land of the free and a democracy in which the
people can choose who is president, even if they only get a choice
of alpha and beta, a black republicrat or a white republicrat.
will not break the old constitutional forms – the bottle now filled
with the new wine of totalitarian tyranny, as seen blatantly in
the fed – until the coming implosion frightens the masses into submission
to martial law. In the grip of terror over the chaos and dread of
starvation, the masses will go beyond their present "President"
Worship and embrace a Savior Dictator, as the Russians, Italians,
Germans, Chinese and so many other terrified people have done before
in this Modernist Age of Chaos, Implosions and Dread caused by cutting
away the roots of human nature and ancient cultural traditions and
replacing them with bureaucratic central plans for paper money,
the economy, health and everything else.
