The Next US President Will Be….

….the Fortune 500. Why no matter who you vote for, nothing will ever change.

President George Bush, President Barack Obama, and presidential hopeful Mitt Romney all work for the exact same handful of corporate-financier interests. While they vary in how they dress up their methods of carrying out what is essentially a singular agenda, there is glaring continuity from one administration to the next in a process analogous to a corporate spokesman presenting the agenda of the board of directors. Changing spokesmen doesn’t change the agenda of the board of directors.

While the corporate media focuses on non-issues, and political pundits accentuate petty political rivalries between the “left” and the “right,” a look deeper into presidential cabinets and the authors of domestic and foreign policy reveals just how accurate this analogy is and who sits on the “board of directors.”

Since the time of JP Morgan 100 years ago, the corporate-financier elite saw themselves as being above government, and national sovereignty as merely a regulatory obstacle they could lobby, bribe, and manipulate out of existence. In the past 100 years, the monied elite have gone from manipulating the presidency to now reducing the office to a public relations functionary of their collective interests. 

George Bush’s cabinet consisted of representatives from FedEx, Boeing, the Council on Foreign Relations, big-oil’s Belfer Center at Harvard, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Circuit City, Verizon, Cerberus Capital Management, Goldman Sachs, and the RAND Corporation, among many others.

Egyptian Protesters: US Stooge “ElBaradei for President”

Egypt’s “revolutionaries” prove again the unfathomable fraud that is the “Arab Spring.”

Once again after yet another disingenuous campaign by the corporate media, the “Arab Spring” mobs filling Egypt’s Tahrir Square have revealed their true agenda, calling for US corporate-funded International Crisis Group trustee Mohammed ElBaradei to be named by the military as the next “president” of Egypt. Increasing violence in Tahrir Square along with calls by the White House and the EU for a “a quick transfer of power to a civilian government in Egypt,” is pressuring the Egyptian military to quickly find a suitable replacement to quell the mobs.

 Wall Street and London, via their corporate-media have been building up ElBaradei for at least a year before the “Arab Spring” even began, portraying him as the great hope for Egypt. Foreign Affairs magazine, in March 2010, literally printed an article titled, “Is ElBaradei Egypt’s Hero?”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ElBaradei’s Long Belly-Crawl Into Power

 The US International Crisis Group (ICG) trustee Mohamed ElBaradei has spent over a year prying his way into Egyptian politics, landing in Cairo not at the beginning of the recent unrest in January 2011, but all the way back in February 2010. He was met, literally at the airport in Cairo, by the US State Department trained and supported April 6 Youth Movement and Google executive Wael Ghonim. Over the next year they campaigned together for the November 2010 elections, built up the “National Front for Change,” and prepared for the protests Wall Street and London had been designing since at least 2008. These protests would then be portrayed disingenuously by the complicitous corporate-media as “spontaneous,” “indigenous,” and “inspired by” the equally disingenuous, premeditated unrest that had just shook Tunisia.
