Obama. Change. What Change?

What Change?

"Change you can believe in." This was Barack Obama's campaign slogan. There

is no doubt that the American people were fed up with George W. Bush and his

fellow Republicans. Who can blame them?

After campaigning for change back in 1999 (What political challenger doesn't

campaign for change?), President Bush and his fellow neocons promptly set

out to continue business as usual in Washington, D.C. Federal spending and

meddling exploded under the leadership of the GOP. In fact, one has to go

back to the administrations of Franklin D. Roosevelt to match the increases

in Big Government and Big Brother by Bush and Company. Add to the

out-of-control spending habits of the GOP an unnecessary war, a

near-Depression economy, and a burgeoning police state. It is no surprise

that the American people were ready for change. And Obama excelled in

delivering the message of change. So, what kind of change will Obama

actually deliver?

Will Obama remove U.S. troops from Iraq and Afghanistan? Probably not. Oh,

he might reduce troops in Iraq, but if anyone believes that he will not

leave a significant U.S. presence in Iraq, they are living in a dream world.

Furthermore, many, if not most, of the troops from Iraq will most likely

find themselves in Afghanistan. Mark my words; Barack Obama has no plans to

remove U.S. troops from the Middle East. Net result: no change.

What about America's economic woes? What changes will Barack Obama bring to

the table? Hardly any. America will continue it's trademark deficit

spending; we will continue to send manufacturing jobs overseas; so-called

"free trade" deals will continue to advance; Big Business will continue to

receive government bailouts; the Federal Reserve will continue to call the

shots for America's financial decisions (and reap gargantuan profits in the

process); Congress will continue to be inept, irresponsible, and clueless;

there will be no attempt to return the United States to sound money

principles; and there will be no reduction in foreign aid. In a nutshell, it

will be business as usual in Washington, D.C., and New York City.

Don't get me wrong: Barack Obama will doubtless throw out some bones to his

liberal supporters in much the same way that Republican presidents throw out

a bone or two to their conservative constituents. Watch for Obama to

overturn the ban on embryonic stem cell research. America's upper income

earners can expect some sort of tax increase. No doubt oil companies will

end up losing some tax exemptions. Watch for additional environmentalist

policies to be enacted. And, yes, there will be some sort of "universal

health care" proposal. But the Bush administration has already given America

a socialized financial system, so how can Republicans complain about

socialized medicine?

Obama might try to resurrect the "Fairness Doctrine." Some suggest that

Obama might try to rid the prohibition of homosexuals serving in the armed

forces, but I doubt that he will take on this one. The political net gain

would not be worth the potential fallout.

Although he might want to, I doubt that Obama will actively promote

additional gun control (Democrats always lose when this happens). He may

push for a ban on "high capacity" magazines that hold over ten rounds, as

Bill Clinton did. If Obama does not go after guns directly, we can expect

some sort of attack on ammunition (which is already happening) that will

drive up the cost of ammo even more. Of course, some sort of gun

confiscation or martial law could materialize in the wake of another

"terrorist" attack. But a McCain administration would act no differently,

so, again, the net result is zero change. Remember, it was Republican George

W. Bush who expunged Posse Comitatus and deployed 20,000 army troops on U.S.

soil to be used for domestic law enforcement. If Obama really wanted to

bring about change, he would reverse Bush's draconian decisions, would he

not? Don't hold your breath.

We can also expect more harassment of gun owners and lawful gun dealers by

the BATFE. But this is no change at all. The current leadership at BATFE is

already about as hostile to gun owners and gun dealers as it can possibly

be. An Obama BATFE will be no worse. But neither will it be any better. Net

result: no change.

So, what will be the overall change to the direction of America? Answer:

there will be no change to the overall direction of the country. There will

be no change to the welfare state. There will be little change to the

warfare state. No change to NATO, except to expand it. Very little change,

if any, to foreign policy. No change to America's open sieves, otherwise

called national borders. And there will be absolutely no change to the

burgeoning New World Order that began in earnest under both Bushes and Bill


The NAFTA superhighway will have the support of the Obama administration.

The North American Community will proceed unimpeded by the Obama White

House. In all likelihood, the Amero (a common currency with Canada and

Mexico) will materialize during Obama's first term. But this would all have

happened had John McCain been elected. No change here.

One reason why it is so easy to predict a business-as-usual Obama Presidency

is the people that Obama has surrounded himself with. Former New York

Federal Reserve chairman Timothy Geithner* for Secretary of the Treasury;

former Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence Summers* for National Economic

Council director; Bush's Defense Secretary Robert Gates* will keep his job;

Illinois Representative Rahm Emanuel for Obama's Chief of Staff; Hillary

Clinton for Secretary of State; Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano* for

Secretary of Homeland Security; former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle* to

head the Health and Human Services Department; former Assistant Attorney

General Eric Holder to be Attorney General; New Mexico Governor Bill

Richardson* as Secretary of Commerce; Susan Rice* for U.S. Ambassador to the

United Nations; Paul Volcker* for the Economic Recovery Advisory Board;

James Steinberg* as Deputy Secretary of State; Mona Sutphen* for Deputy

White House Chief of Staff, and Louis Caldera* for Director of the White

House Military Office.

Does anyone see "change" with the above names? Every one of them is a

longtime political insider. And at least eleven of them (those with an

asterisk [*] behind their names, above) are members of the globalist Council

on Foreign Relations (CFR). In fact, six out of the eleven cabinet-level

positions in the Obama administration are CFR members.

The CFR has dominated both Democrat and Republican Presidential

administrations for decades. Presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard

Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton have all

been members of the CFR. Vice Presidents such as Hubert Humphrey, Nelson

Rockefeller, Walter Mondale, and Dick Cheney have been CFR members. And over

the last several decades, practically every secretary of defense, secretary

of the treasury, and most CIA directors have been CFR members. And let's not

forget that this year's Republican Presidential nominee, John McCain, is a

CFR member.

Do you now see why--no matter who is elected President of the United

States--nothing changes? Republican or Democrat, it does not matter: the CFR

and their collaborators remain in power. And as Sonny and Cher used to sing,

"The Beat Goes On."

There will be no real change in Washington, D.C., until the CFR and their

elitist cronies are thoroughly and universally removed from power. And the

only way this will happen is if we elect an Independent President of the

United States (someone who truly understands the New World Order and is

dedicated to defeating it), because the two major parties will never allow

someone opposed to the CFR to become their nominee. The only Republican

candidate for President in 2008 who demonstrated those credentials was Dr.

Ron Paul. And to a lesser degree, the only Democrat who even seemed to

vaguely understand this was Dennis Kucinich. Notice that both men were

thoroughly repudiated by their respective parties' leadership and all but

totally ignored by the national news media. (The CFR and their surrogates

also control the national news media. What a coincidence!)

So, while the occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may have changed, there

will be no real change to the direction of these United States. Count on it!
