OBAMA’S GRAND TOUR: How to make threats and influence cowards

SQUARE.JW.01For the first time, I am at last beginning to understand what Charles de Gaulle was on about. Unfortunately, far too many Europeans don’t know who the hell he was

Having politely informed Britain about just how far towards the back of the queue (for anything) it’ll be if it steps out of line, the Black Dude moved on to Germany today and told continental Europeans how they too had to stick together for the sake of America the Global Policeman…or else.

President Obama seems to be getting more delusional as his Grand Tour continues. I offer these words from his speech today as support for that contention:

“If a unified, peaceful, liberal, pluralistic, free-market Europe begins to doubt itself, begins to question the progress that’s been made over the last several decades, then we can’t expect the progress that is just now taking hold in many places around the world will continue.”

unified: bollocks…Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Poland and of course the UK are at odds with Brussels-am-Berlin on every dimension of where it’s going: austerity, the euro, federalism and global trade deals.

peaceful: bollocks…civil strife in Greece, the Ukraine and the Balkans all took place on the EU’s watch. The direct result of EC cultural control has been the rise of extreme politics in almost every Member State. EU inaction had produced the greatest and most violent migrant crisis in European history.

liberal: bollocks…censorious legislation in Spain, France and Greece is at an alltime high. The UK is busy following suit. Unelected corporacratic leaders hold sway at the Bank of England, the UK Treasury, and the European Central Bank. The Troika of “lenders” has taken control in Greece.

pluralistic: bollocks…the European Union is a one-Party State, and that Party is The Federalists. No other policy in power is on offer….and any attempt at gaining power in a member State is mercilessly crushed by the illegally formed Eurogroupe.

free-market: bollocks….the European Union is endemically monopolist, and an enthusiastic player in the drive to ensure that only globalist Big Business may trade. If TTIP is not about this, then whatTF is it about? Meanwhile, informal protectionism is rife in France, Spain, Germany and Holland.

Those of us who want creative, communitarian capitalism driven by ethical entrepreneurs would like to get just three things: out of the no longer special relationship, out of NATO, and out of the EU. These elements are in our way President Obama, because they are all about what the economic colonialism of the USA wants, rather than what we need.

I am not a Communist, I am not for violence, I am not even socialist. In fact, I am not remotely anti-American. But I am implacably opposed to the policies of the US State Department/corporate globalist/Pentagon/Wall Street axis of fascism. And the stats since 1960 show that – at any given time – anything from 47-52% of American voters agree with me: so please Mr President, don’t try to position me as a marginalist.

It’s not me selling some kind of weirdo agenda. Rather, Uncle Tombama, it’s you that has sold out.
