Obama Doublespeak Duplicity

Obama Doublespeak Duplicity

by Stephen Lendman

Demagogic doublespeak dots his rhetoric. So do mumbo jumbo Big Lies. They systematically drown out truth.

It's consistent Obama policy. He mocks democratic values. Justifying the unjustifiable. Defending the indefensible. Supporting the unthinkable.

Believing militarism is the be all and end all. Waging permanent wars on humanity. It may not survive on his watch.

Removing him is a moral imperative. An urgent necessity. He presides over a police state apparatus. He institutionalized tyranny. It's headed toward full-blown.

He's advancing America's imperium ruthlessly. He's a war criminal multiple times over. He's guilty of high crimes against peace. He risks WW III.

On October 11, he spoke in San Francisco. At a scripted DNC event. Selected guests alone were invited.

He repeated one Big Lie after another. "(N)ews lately has been dominated by what's taking place overseas," he said.

He bears full responsibility for what he called "scary to people, and understandably so."

His Afghan war continues. It's America's longest conflict. Responsible for millions of deaths. No end in sight looms.

He made Libya a cauldron of violence. A dystopian wasteland. North Africa's most developed country no longer exists.

He's waging Iraq War III. Without Security Council or congressional authorization. All US wars are illegal. Aggressive. Premeditated. Ones of choice.

Obama bears full responsibility for Syria's war. In March 2011, he launched it. Using imported proxy death squads.

Radicalized Islamists. US special forces and CIA operatives arm, fund, train and direct them.

Deploy them against Assad. Wanting pro-Western stooge governance replacing him.

Bombing since late September. Headed for deploying US troops. Hundreds infest Iraq already. Perhaps many more covertly.

His "no (US) boots on the ground" is another of his many Big Lies. If military commanders recommend them, expect brigades headed for Iraq and Syria.

Invasions followed by full-scale war. Potentially thousands of US troops involved. Protracted fighting without end.

Perhaps for 30 years, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta believes. Post-9/11, Dick Cheney warned of wars not ending in our lifetime.

New World Order lawlessness operates this way. Don't expect Obama to explain. Advancing America's imperium matters most.

Glorifying wars without end in the name of peace. Making the world safe for war-profiteers. Destroying nations to save them.

Committing genocidal high crimes in the process. Doing so unapologetically.

"We have ISIL emerging out of the chaos in Syria and Iraq," Obama claimed. It's a US creation. It bears repeating.

Washington recruits, funds, trains, arms and directs its fighters. They're proxies against US adversaries. Foot soldiers. Shock troops. Boots on the ground. Don't expect Obama to explain.

"We have Ebola in West Africa," he said. Deployed US troops there are in harm's way. They're human guinea pigs.

They're helping Big Pharma create a new bioweapon. For huge profits. Potentially for mass murder.

Earlier Obama lied. "(W)e're not going to compromise the health and safety of our armed services," he said.

He says one thing. He means another. He wages propaganda war against truth. Hot wars against nations posing America no threat.

Lying about nonexistent "Russian aggression in Ukraine." He bears full responsibility for elevating fascist putschists to power. They have no legitimacy whatever.

"And what ties these things together," he said, "is the fact that on each and every one of these issues - whether it's mobilizing the world to push back ISIL and go against violent extremism…"

"(W)hether it is responding robustly to help the people of Liberia and Guinea and Sierra Leone, but also the entire world deal with this heartbreaking epidemic…"

"(W)hen it comes to mobilizing world opinion and sanctions to blunt Russian aggression against Ukraine…"

"(A)t the center of it, leading it is the United States of America," he ludicrously claimed.

No nation in world history did more harm to more people over a longer duration. Continues doing it.

None more ruthlessly. More shamelessly. More lawlessly. More unapologetically. More less concerned about breaching rule of law principles.

Trashing democratic values. Causing mass slaughter and destruction. Unspeakable human misery.

"When problems happen around the world, they call us," Obama absurdly claimed.

"And (it's) not just because we have greater capacity, but it's also because of our values and our vision, and the principles that we abide by, and our willingness to extend ourselves, even when something is not directly affecting us right now."  

"We understand that it's in our interest over the long term to make sure that we've got a world that's more just and more compassionate and more prosperous, and where children have opportunity."

Truth is polar opposite. Obamaspeak defends indefensible policies. Horrific ones. Lawless ones.

He calls naked aggression "leadership." "Humanitarian intervention." "Responsibility to protect." Destroying planet earth to save it. Claiming it's the right thing to do.

"And the good news," he says, "is (making) real, genuine, documentable progress in the wake of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression."

He thirdworldized America. He transformed the world's richest economy into a house of cards. A dystopian backwater.

His so-called recovery is fake. Illusory. Protracted Main Street Depression conditions affect growing millions.

Human suffering is real. Pathetically little is done to help.

Ordinary people are increasingly on their own out of luck.

Administration policy demands it. Bipartisan complicity supports it. Inequality is institutionalized. It's unprecedented in modern times.

Poverty is a growth industry. So are unemployment, underemployment, hunger, homelessness and despair.

Obama lied claiming otherwise. Including about creating jobs. Most good ones no longer exist. They've been offshored to low-wage countries.

Rigged Labor Department reports fabricate others. Exaggerate numbers created. What's left are low-pay, part-time or temp, low or no-benefit rotten jobs.

Ones most US workers shunned decades earlier. What they have no choice about now. For minimal income. Sub-poverty wages for many. Needing two or more jobs to survive.

"And mad(e) sure…we provided more health care to more people (at) less than they otherwise would" pay, Obama claimed.

He commodified it more than ever. Made it a pay or die system. Rationed it to enrich insurers, drug companies and large hospital chains.

Sticker shock disproves his cost savings claims. He sold smoke and mirrors. He makes used car salesmen look respectable by comparison.

His Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides unaffordable coverage.

Millions of households pay 40% or more out-of-pocket.

For co-pays and deductibles. On top of costly premiums. US healthcare is double the cost of other developed countries.

it's increasingly unaffordable. Profits matter most. Virtually nothing is done to constrain price hikes. Don't expect Obama to explain.

He lied claiming "almost no economic measure by which we’re not doing better than we were six years ago."

Race to the bottom reality proves otherwise. So does China becoming the world's top economy this year. It's No. 1. Rising.

Growing at an impressive rate. America is in terminal decline. People are worried. Their incomes haven't kept up. Their well-being is jeopardized. They feel "anxious," Obama said.

He left unexplained why. His service to monied interests. Bankers top his pecking order. So do war-profiteers. Ordinary people don't matter.

Most young people have no futures. College students are debt-entrapped. Many for life.

America's economy lifts all yachts. It benefits its privileged alone. Peace, equity and justice are four-letter words. Obama bears full responsibility.

He disgraces the office he holds. He's guilty of high crimes and then some. Popular needs on his watch go begging.

He lies claiming otherwise. He's a serial liar. His word isn't his bond. He broke every major promise made.

His minimum wage proposal if enacted would leave millions at sub-poverty levels. His notion of education reform is commodifying it as another business profit center.

His idea of helping US workers is destroying collective bargaining altogether.

His so-called "vision" is shared by (most) Americans," he claimed. He's increasingly despised worldwide. His homeland approval rating sunk to the lowest level of his presidency.

Increasing numbers know they've been had. They know a con man when they see one. His message increasingly falls flat.

"(T)here's there’s going to be a bright future not just for this generation, but for generations to come," he claims.

Instead of improving lives for most Americans, he created worse conditions than ever in generations.

He made America a gangster state. A pariah. A nation unfit to live in. Don't expect him to explain.
