Obama’s Evil Empire

A thrilling scene took place recently with the United States Senate, playing host as its backdrop. Reichsmarchall Brennan Barack Obama’s kill-list aficionado, had to overcome a Mr. Smith-style filibuster. He had to do this in order to get the Attorney General to rescind his fatuous explanation, for why American citizens could be killed on US soil — with a predator drone. Only it wasn’t led by Jimmy Stewart this time around, but instead by the shifty junior Kentucky Senator Dr. Rand Paul. This particular fight of evil battling versus itself must go down in the history books — as one of the most classic examples of it — perhaps of all time. By this I am not referring to the good fight on the drones, for which Senator Paul deserves some plaudits/commendation, but the entire corpus/portfolio of work, as well as belief system of the junior Kentucky Senator.

Dr. Rand Paul is a man who had endorsed the rapacious asset stripper of the unholy, bestial, base and degenerate Bain Capital. The governor and asset stripper who stood against, so many of the views of Rand Paul’s father, such that one could easily fill an encyclopedia with. And so therefore I place this particular Dr. Paul as a neo-”libertarian”, because with a taste of power — which corrupts absolutely — he seems to have little of the principle that his father consistently, and perpetually had. (Though his father did at one point in his career throw the 9/11 Truth movement under the bus, a movement that he had ever so disingenuously ostensibly taken up the banner for, and wooed.) Whatever one thinks of some of the imbecilic, cretinous and/or nonsensical views and opinions, on many positions that Rand Paul’s father held; at least the father committed few, if any, of these egregious power-grabbing sins of the ravenously and fiendishly ambitious, and; moreover, deeply contumacious and froward son.

Nevertheless, the Mr. Smith-style filibuster was, anyway, as aforementioned a case of evil fighting against itself. It juxtaposed, the Wall Street Democrat/mascot Obama, versus the neo-libertarian of ideologue of the John Galt school. Does anyone anywhere (except those brain-dead, wantonly ignorant, tuned into to Faux News and such), any longer have any doubt as to what exists, at present, as the evil empire of this world? Do the last remaining folks who see Amerika as some kind of beacon, need it spelled out for them, a map, and/or a decoder ring too? Obama is a corporatist, what’s not on the page of the Constitution he extemporizes in his day to day activities/routines in furtherance of his abominable ends! And he can lead the so-called GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) with the most wretched of them, but when it comes to fighting the American plutocracy, and the radical austerity program of America’s far unhinged Reich-wing his entreaties are: absolutely feckless, weak and; for certainty, profoundly unsound too.

Obama is currently using another one of Paul Ryan’s deranged federal budget extrapolations, as something that he can “play off of” so to speak — or use as a foil — in order to make savage; pleasing to American barbarous uber-elites like Peter G. Petersen; and unneeded “entitlement” cuts. And so therefore maybe then he will go down as a pragmatist, and a “guy who can get things done” (in the duly, rightly, and properly recorded history books). Never mind that they might be ignoble and wholly repugnant things, apparently, just that he got them done, though. In my opinion Obama plans to meet the lunatic Ryan halfway. That way he won’t gouge the working and middle classes, as bad as a Tea Party Republican such as Paul Ryan shamelessly would! Nevertheless, Obama deserves shame for these utterly vulgar, iniquitous, and contemptible acts that he is plotting withal!

For shame Obama! I never bought your phony hope and change Madison Avenue construction, but; undoubtedly, you’ll be twisting the knife on so many who did! They believed your Pepsi Cola act and marketing campaign, notwithstanding, that you had much — if not mainly — duplicity planned for them after all! Instead, of socking it to Wall Street, and incarcerating those who perpetrated the crimes of the crash of 2008, you’ve largely left them off the hook, and are now coming for the common folks! With fangs gnashing, and finding a backbone where nay there has ever been one before!

The fact that Obama seems to relish a (sic) grand bargain on these hard-earned “entitlements” that so many do (or will) rely upon, is — there’s just no other way to put it — absolutely nuts. But as I’ve said Obama may be thinking of his place in history, rather than prioritizing any other scheme (or ruse), and this may be the driver for his unquestionably low-minded, Machiavellian current pursuits, and deeply inauspicious ends. The kill granny/cat food policies cannot be used self-interestedly, to create a legacy for the cruel-minded, prestige seeking, as well as vainglorious Obama! The 99% must come together again to fight these immoral, impertinent, wrongheaded and moreover wholly unethical aims!

Just as it took an unlikely hero to stop Obama’s rapacious advance in killing Americans (on US soil) with drones, there can also be heroes to emerge to confront Obama’s voracious pickaxing/whittling away at the veritably indispensable social safety net! Which is already one of the most tightfisted, miserly, and Lilliputian of them all in the Western world! And so thusly, it cannot be whittled away/pickaxed any more! Particularly, in advancement of President Obama’s myopic, short-sighted and self-aggrandizing disreputable goals! A backstab that he finds imperative in order to secure himself a place in the protruding, and commonly recollected contrivances of the preeminent historical tomes. Though, probably even by the hagiographers, who love nothing more than to be obsequious to, and to sniff the potentate’s throne; Obama should know it will only be for infamy, and for evil that he will ultimately go down! And so therefore his current praxis/strategy is without question; undeniably, one that must be fully, utterly, and entirely rebuked/curtailed.

Sean Fenley is an independent progressive, who would like to see some sanity brought to the creation and implementation of current and future, US military, economic, foreign and domestic policies.
