The Obama Deception

I must have felt a disturbance in the force because it is 4am and I am up and staring at a screen almost over come with emotion at the herd of sheep blindly applauding a man that has brought more war, death and destruction to this planet than his predecessor and deceived just about every human on the planet the last four years. I of course am talking about the actor in charge of America, allegedly, Barack Obama.

Where does one start.

His State of the Union address was quite possibly one of the most uncomfortable experiences I have had since one of his pre-election speeches back in 2007 where he claimed he would finish the fight with the Taliban, close Guantanamo Bay and restore Habeas Corpus. The last time I checked the so called war on terror was still being fought, Guantanamo Bay is still open for business and Habeas Corpus had just about been torn up for toilet paper on New Years Eve 2011 with the signing of the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) which he claimed was "unconstitutional" and "un-American" yet still signed.

"For the first time in nine years, there are no Americans fighting in Iraq. For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to this country. Most of al Qaeda's top lieutenants have been defeated. The Taliban's momentum has been broken, and some troops in Afghanistan have begun to come home"

This does not take into account the numerous private security personnel still operating out there for big private defence contractors such as Academi, formerly Blackwater and is only of course so he can redeploy them in time for the up coming war with iRan. If you doubt this then ask yourself what happened to Gaddafi when he looked at trading oil for gold?

Obama swiftly returned to a more local issue when he started to talk through his vision for the future of America's economy, a well scripted effort where he tried to paint the image of a recovering economy. 

"The state of our Union is getting stronger. And we've come too far to turn back now. As long as I'm President, I will work with anyone in this chamber to build on this momentum"

Unless of course you have had your head in the sand or been on holiday to the dark side of the moon you will know this is a lie. Especially the day after the IMF warned we face a 1930's moment. By this I just assumed they meant depression and a world war?
On the subject of 'economy' as they put it, there are a few things I would like to try and clarify for myself. Firstly it was my understanding that during the 1980's, a vintage time, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher smashed unions, as the labour workforce was seen as an obstacle to the capitalist model and also industry? Work was outsourced to Asia (check the back of your iPhone) and presumably check the model of your vehicle, Toyota? Honda? This access to the world labour markets drove down production costs and simultaneously increased unemployment and prices at the till? The auto industry in America and the UK was in ruins. Strange then to see that in last nights address Obama managed to utter the words; "Tonight, the American auto industry is back."

He then went on to say;

"My message is simple. It's time to stop rewarding businesses that ship jobs overseas, and start rewarding companies that create jobs right here in America. Send me these tax reforms, and I'll sign them right away."

Obviously it has dawned on someone that if your people have no purchasing power then your economy as they see it is doomed. Another way around this would be to employ two people for every job and maintain the wage but that is a dream, surely?
Never one to leave the Chinese alone for too long he then seemed to single out the Chinese particularly for piracy and imitation of products;

"Tonight, I'm announcing the creation of a Trade Enforcement Unit that will be charged with investigating unfair trade practises in countries like China.
It's not right when another country lets our movies, music, and software be pirated. It's not fair when foreign manufacturers have a leg up on ours only because they're heavily subsidised."
The process of satellite production companies in factories based in China is common place but then what do you expect if you pay children a dollar a day to make your Air Jordans? I would say Obama has bigger problems with China than whether they have fake Apple stores popping up, like their gold for oil trade with iRan as mentioned earlier. This is something the American economy cannot abide with the dollar currently hooked up to a defibrillator awaiting its next cardiac arrest.
"Right now, American oil production is the highest that it's been in eight years. That's right, eight years. Not only that – last year, we relied less on foreign oil than in any of the past 16 years.

Let there be no doubt: America is determined to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon and I will take no options off the table to achieve that goal. But a peaceful resolution of this issue is still possible, and far better, and if Iran changes course and meets its obligations, it can rejoin the community of nations. Our iron-clad commitment to Israel's security has meant the closest military cooperation between our two countries in history."

Right here we have the crux of the upcoming conflict with iRan
The sound of the battle drums beating over iRan and its nuclear threat are a thinly veiled cover for the real reason for aggression towards them, their oil and America's unwavering allegiance to a state perpetrating the very sort of genocide that they have become infamous for, following their treatment at the hands of the Nazi's. It is for this very reason that the people of Israel should rise up against the principles their leaders are trying to justify against a people not so dissimilar to themselves.

The actor supposedly in charge proceeded to enlighten us on the mechanism and philosophy of democracy regarding the two party nation finding common ground, he even managed to sneak a quote in from Abraham Lincoln, trying to convince people of the worth of your vote... Like George Carlin said if you vote, you legitimise what they do to you.

"We need to end the notion that the two parties must be locked in a perpetual campaign of mutual destruction; that politics is about clinging to rigid ideologies instead of building consensus around common sense ideas.

I'm a Democrat. But I believe what Republican Abraham Lincoln believed: That Government should do for people only what they cannot do better by themselves, and no more."

The closing stages of his speech were quite remarkable, the American military efforts in the Middle East were used as metaphor for some kind of great notion of people casting aside differences, to come together as one with common goals. Championing the Seal Team that allegedly killed Osama Bin Laden and comparing their mission to the hands that built America left a bitter taste in the mouth. 

"When you put on that uniform, it doesn't matter if you're black or white, Asian or Latino, conservative or liberal, rich or poor, gay or straight. When you're marching into battle, you look out for the person next to you, or the mission fails.
One of my proudest possessions is the flag that the Seal Team took with them on the mission to get Bin Laden. On it are each of their names. Some may be Democrats. Some may be Republicans. But that doesn't matter. Just like it didn't matter that day in the Situation Room, when I sat next to Bob Gates – a man who was George Bush's defence secretary; and Hillary Clinton, a woman who ran against me for president.

All that mattered that day was the mission. No one thought about politics. No one thought about themselves.... More than that, the mission only succeeded because every member of that unit trusted each other – because you can't charge up those stairs, into darkness and danger, unless you know that there's someone behind you, watching your back.

"So it is with America. Each time I look at that flag, I'm reminded that our destiny is stitched together like those fifty stars and those thirteen stripes. No one built this country on their own. This Nation is great because we built it together. This Nation is great because we worked as a team. This Nation is great because we get each others backs. And if we hold fast to that truth, in this moment of trial, there is no challenge too great; no mission too hard. As long as we're joined in common purpose, as long as we maintain our common resolve, our journey moves forward, our future is hopeful, and the state of our Union will always be strong.
Thank you, God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America."

The 'death' of Osama Bin Laden single handily saved Obama's political career and last night he used it to launch his bid to remain in the White House to oversee another four years. Four more years of lies. Four more years of war. Four more years of death. Four more years of your liberties being signed away to secure greater 'freedoms'.

Message To a Banking Terrorist

On November 39th 2011 I addressed a couple thousand people in the town square on the UK National Day of Action. This is what I said;

They say if you are not angry then you are not paying attention.

From St Paul's Cathedral where I have stayed off duty to today the people are expressing their anger.

We are facing an attack to our living conditions unprecedented in recent history where faceless banking terrorists have played roulette with our futures with a currency system designed to fail and enslaving us through debt.

Let us be blunt, the banks (bailed out by us) the government and the Bank of England have conspired to rob every working member of the public in broad daylight. It matters not whether you work in the private sector or the public sector, we the people are all suffering together. From the petrol pumps to the grocery stores we are all struggling.

We must not let them divide us for our strength is in our unity.

Public sector pension reform is a stealth tax. The increases in contributions do not go into the pension system, they head straight into the treasury to help pay off the deficit. Increases in the rate of inflation are robbing us all on a daily basis.

A pound is not what it used to be.

Strike is a last resort, as I explained to my Chief one Christmas, the right for a worker to withdraw their labour is their last straw, the last throw of the dice against oppressive working regimes and government.
We are our labour.
We are all fiercely proud of doing our jobs so to be stood here today shows a failure on the governments part, past and present, to serve the people that elect them.

Negotiations have gone on for months but no movement occurred until today, our day of action, was called. The FBU did not ballot for industrial action but we are under no illusion that it is not another government tactic to further split and divide us which is why we are here today showing our support to you all.

I would like to clarify that I am not in the firefighter pension scheme, new or old, because I do not believe the lies our government reel out on a daily basis on their future. The new firefighters pension scheme is less than six years old and already they are going back on their word. What hope then that they would honour any up coming agreements thirty-five years from now?
But I still fight for the futures of others. Our lives are our legacy.

The children of today are the adults and future of tomorrow and I refuse to remain silent and watch our future generations hopes and dreams be shattered by this or any other government. Do not be fooled by Labour lies either. They have never said "NO" to cuts, just that they have been "too deep, too fast". 
This is unacceptable and even on the morning of the day of action Ed Balls reiterated this motto on the BBC.
We all deserve better.

I recently attended a meeting at parliament with MP's from Bedfordshire and explained to them exactly these points. they called me irrational for leaving the pension, they called me perverse.
Fine insults for them to make whilst earning more than twice a firefighters wage and sitting on, as I highlighted, a gold plated pension that would be safe in the long run.

Much of the mainstream news would have us believe that the majority of the public do not support the public sector or that public sector pensions are unsustainable.
This is untrue and factually incorrect.
The government have the money to fund unjust wars but not our hospitals, schools emergency services and their staff? I do not believe it.
Do not believe the hype.

It was once said "make the lie big, make it simple, keep repeating it and eventually they will believe it" How indoctrinated do we have to be to continue to believe their lies?

So the emphasis lies with us all to better inform and educate those around us that believe the lies the Rupert Murdoch news repeaters or the Daily 'hate' Mail tell them EVERY day.
Do not get e wrong, I agree that private sector pensions are terrible but that does not mean we should allow public sector pensions to be destroyed, we should be fighting to make all pensions better so that we can all prosper and not let these banking terrorists continue to profit from our labour.

We must not let them divide us, our strength is our unity.

An example of this divide and conquer culture engulfing our society during this recession was made apparent to me last night as one of my friends told me she disagreed with these strikes, particularly the teachers, because it was costing her a days wage to stay at home and look after her children.

I say shame on her employers.
Any employer docking an employees pay today for reasons such as this should be ashamed of themselves.
Shame on her employers for punishing a single mother whilst her children's teachers fight for;
their rights, your rights and our children's futures.

She has since focused her her feelings of discontent on the people responsible. The government and the banking terrorists.

Remember, our unity is our strength.

Ultimately it boils down to a choice...we can continue to participate in the lies they have created for us r we can begin to create our own reality.

Our time is now.

Chaplain Had it Right 70 Years Ago

Dejavusion Productions and Lucas Media present to you The Great Dictator, Free men

The Great Dictator was a movie made in 1940, starring Charlie Chaplain, and a parody of Nazi Germany, a state that bears chilling resemblance to America and the UK today.
The speech, now 70 years old, resonates powerfully with the topics of today and shows how nothing has changed other than the face of fascism today. Then it was Hitler, today we have Obama, Cameron and the other actors involved.

"When you dangle a carrot it is called capitalism, when you use the stick it is called fascism" - and there has been plenty of that in recent months both sides of the Atlantic.

Madness, of a Lost Society?

Dejavusion Productions and Lucas Media are proud to present to you 'Life' a short video inspired by a video blog from Freelee, taking inspiration from George Carlin and the movie American Beauty.

Enjoy, share.


Social Conditioning Box

Television, the source of information for us all for so long, has led to a culture of indoctrination unprecedented at any time in our history. The ability for marketing firms, employed by government, to promote a party line or drum up support through adverts, entertainment shows and news programs for unjust wars and the acceptance of the removal of our human rights is quite frankly disturbing.

Between David Cameron, Barack Obama and their guide dogs Theresa May and Hilary Clinton, human rights have taken a severe shake up. The signing of the recent National Defence Authorisation Act 2012 by Barack Obama (on New Years eve whilst everyone else was out getting drunk) was the latest in a line of acts signed by our so called leaders that have watered down our liberty. These acts include the UK's Terrorism Prevention and Investigatory Measures (TPims) and of course the USA Patriot Act 2001.

Having read through them they make for unsettling reading, which is more than can be said for congress or parliament who probably read the cover and proceeded to nod it through like a CFA meeting.

Never at any time has it been more important to ask more questions. Unfortunately for us all, this has not been the case.

The shame of it all is that the majority passively accept what they are told because we are all too easily distracted. Entertainment shows, so called 'reality' shows and soap operas dominate the airwaves and if they do not get you here then they immerse you in sport 24/7. They underpin this 360˚ distraction television by constantly bombarding us with news streams depicting images of terror designed to keep us in a constant state of fear. Of course once they have sown the seed of fear and terror they then proceed to show us 'heroic' images of our soldiers after being half blown to kingdom come and encourage us all to pay for their rehabilitation and after care.
The government sent them to die, the government should then honour their duty to care for them once they have been injured or maimed and provide for their families if they do not make it home.

There is a reason why I call it the social conditioning box.

Through the power of the media they demonise immigrants and asylum seekers (formerly known as refugees) blaming them for unemployment, increases in crime and a stuttering economy, whilst brushing under the carpet the true reasons for this-the disproportionate standard of living between those that have and those that do not. You cannot have continuous growth in a system that is good for a few and terrible for the rest. It is designed to fail.
The danger lies in the fact that the daily lies they sell us encourage us to ask for the sanctions they  impose on our liberties just because we did not truly understand what is was we were asking for.

The needs of the many out way the needs of the few and until this is understood by all we will fail to achieve any kind of security, safety or peace, today or tomorrow. Homeland security extends beyond the falsely created borders we have created for ourselves for the entire planet is our home.
To this end we must stop letting the ruling class divide us through language, racism does not exist other than for government to sell wars and hatred to us. We are one human race.
Until this dawning comes to us all we shall all have to make do with the signing away of our liberties and watch them die out to the sound of thunderous applause.
