The day Obama was inaugurated the first time he announced his new financial team ... all neocons, all part of the old Bush/Cheney/Wolfowitz/Greenspan/Summers thinkers, who have a philosophy called "Wolfowitz Doctrine of 1992", "While the U.S. cannot become the world's policeman, by assuming responsibility for righting every wrong, we will retain the preeminent responsibility for addressing selectively those wrongs which threaten not only our interests, but those of our allies or friends, or which could seriously unsettle international relations."
~ The New York Times, http://work.colum.edu/~amiller/wolfowitz1992.htm
It was not intended to be released publicly, but was leaked to The New York Time and sparked a public outcry of imperialism, unilateralism, and pre-emptive military action to crush any nation perceived to be rising in status. The philosophy of dominionism begins.
Undeclared wars followed, and you remember the history, one undeclared invasion and bombing of one nation after another. There were seven countries, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran, to be attacked and removed within five years by a policy coup that occurred after 9/11, after careful planning started in 1992, began to take control of policy of USA.
In came Obama, he retained the Cheney/Wolfowitz/Greenspan/Bernanke thinkers and continued their policies. Obama was ready to name Larry Summer, one of Obama’s closest economic confidantes and a former Treasury secretary, to replace Bernanke as chairman of the Federal Reserve.
A public outcry rose in objection to Summers, and today, Sept 15, 2013, Summers "withdrew his name from consideration for the position of chairman of the Federal Reserve amid rising opposition from Mr. Obama’s own Democratic allies on Capitol Hill."
~ Summers Pulls Name From Consideration for Fed Chief, New York Times, September 15, 2013.
USA is not going to recover politically and economically until and unless Obama realizes he is part of the coup started in 1992.
For all of us who voted for him the first time, we were distracted by his charm and rhetoric. The signs were already there, but I/we failed to see them.
