Anticipating Obama Care – Now Trump
Originally published in 2013.
Look at today’s news and nothing has changed except the presidential face. In fact Trumps attitude while being praised in his pre-election rhetoric for disestablishing globalism is turning more hostile to the world and fuelling the military industrial machine without concern for human rights or the rights of nations.
If you don’t know by now, the USA has a nasty habit of inventing some attack or atrocity, or even getting its own agents to do the dirty work. The US relies on its manufacture of weapons of mass destruction to keep its economy afloat and to do this, it regularly starts wars.
As the UK falters in support of Obama,

The destroyers of the world
It’s a popular opinion that we live in free and fair democratic societies where human rights apply, and that every individual has rights and freedoms according to their class. All those rights and freedoms are decided by the individual, and providing they don’t cause harm to anyone that matters, almost anything is permissible.
At an individual level, rights and freedoms are limited by laws and social conventions, but at a governmental or corporate level, things are very different. As a society we have fair degree of tolerance towards small-time bludgers and scam artists who if they are caught may suffer a loss of assets and sometimes prison time.
At a governmental and corporate level,

The end of an era
Democracy was invented to give people self-determination and our recent ancestors fought two world wars that we should not be enslaved by tyranny, however our leadership is doing its utmost to consign us into submission to the corporations.
With an agreement being reached by government representatives of the participating countries, the agreement must be ratified before the TTP comes into effect.
Despite the objection by many thousands of people in New Zealand, this is looking more and more like a done deal and we will have to reconsider our fate.
So what does the TTPA represent?
For a small group of large corporations, this opens the door to freer trade and increased profitability.

Are you free?
“Instead of citizens, it produces consumers. Instead of communities, it produces shopping malls. The net result is an atomized society of disengaged individuals who feel demoralized and socially powerless.
All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.
In sum, neoliberalism is the immediate and foremost enemy of genuine participatory democracy, not just in the United States but across the planet, and will be for the foreseeable future.
Education is a system of imposed ignorance. The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly

The rise of insanity
Our corporate masters a tightening the screws despite public protest. Here in good old New Zealand, the government continues to sell the people out. They have been slowly but steadily making it easier for international corporations to do as they please and paying lip service to the real needs of the people.
The escalation in house prices is simply part of an international conspiracy by the world’s largest banks providing favours for the executives and return for perks and the surety of good jobs when they leave politics although in this country, politicians continue to receive a substantial salary even when they leave office which is way beyond that of any normal retiree.
Over the past

And the theatre of conspiracy
If you have any interest in US politics and American exceptionalism, have a listen to Naomi Wolf explaining how theatrical news events are fabricated by the nefarious Intelligence agencies and changes in US politics.
10 STEPS WITHIN FASCIST TAKEOVERS – AND AMERICA IN COMPARISON
The full length documentary film based on her book is a must-see for all Americans and those wanting to understand the US.

Controlling our own future
The original idea of government was that government would serve the people and the idea of democracy was that the people could collectively agree about the function of their government as well is agreeing to go with the collective decisions.
But somewhere along the way governments began to act in their own self-interest or should I say the personal interests of those who managed the government. This seems to have been a constant problem throughout human history as we can see by looking back that political aspirations have led to wars, genocide and oppression as well as changing borders.
The journey into power is indeed a challenging one, and we can look at almost any modern

Ukrainian Rebels or Ukrainian Military?
When Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 went down on July 17, 2014, we were immediately inundated with base propaganda trying to convince us that the shootdown could be traced back to the Kremlin, however all evidence points to the Ukraine’s military.
MH17 Departs Amsterdam and over the conflict zone, it is ordered to decrease height and change course. This brings it into range of Ukrainian military jet which shoots it down.
The BUK missile theory:
When launched, this missile causes a small earthquake and it can clearly be seen from far off. There are no witness reports to this effect. The damage to the aircraft is not characteristic of a missile strike. The damage is consistent

With the elections done and dusted and a new cabinet ministers swearing the oath of allegiance to a foreign Queen, summing that out military and police also do, we can look forward to an accelerated rate of social decay under the new national led government.
If I could draw, I would as I have this picture in mind of John Key as a lapdog on Obama’s leash and it so happens that he has paused to cock his leg and piss on New Zealand.
No doubt our Prime Minister is being handsomely rewarded as would any other person who stepped into his shoes. As far as our corporate masters are concerned, they can work with

Our peers making a killing
“12 billion bullets are produced every year – enough to kill everyone on earth twice. In fact, every minute, one person is killed by armed violence. There are almost 1 billion guns in the world (of which about a quarter billion are in the U.S.). Guns or other light weapons are involved in roughly 60% of all human rights violations. Three quarters of all the weapons in the world – light and heavy – are supplied by the 5 permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany. In 2011, exports of arms by the U.S. rose to 3 quarters of the total market.
Global transfers of large conventional weapons such as tanks and planes
