Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have been the victim of bizarre rumors and gossip all over the media. Other Presidents do not hold a candle when it comes to the anti-government rhetoric they’ve faced. He has so many allegations leaked in the press that something fishy must be going on. Obama has been accused of being a Muslim extremist over his attendance at a church where a pastor praised the Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Pastor Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. screamed “God Damn America” after a long diatribe concerning America’s ugly past. Trinity United Church of Christ encourages a “value system” that adheres to the idea of African or just Black empowerment. Wright’s ideas has made White Americans feel that President Obama has a bias against them because he visited that church. Farrakhan has never been involved or connected to any Islamic Fundamentalist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, Al-Fatah, and Al-Qaeda.

Obama has been receiving negative backlash even before he obtained his position as Commander-in-Chief. The controversial cover of the New Yorker magazine on July 14, 2008 featured an illustration depicting Barack and Michelle Obama dressed as gun-toting Islamic militants. Ryan Lizza, the author of the controversial article, was denied a position on one of the 40 press places on Obama’s July 2008 tour. Larry Johnson, a former CIA officer and Hillary Clinton supporter, accused the Obama campaign of “engaging in a nasty little act of getting even.”

The stories released in newspapers, radio, and television have never cited any association from a Middle Eastern, North African, Eurasian or South Asian country. He is accused of being a terrorist over his connection to Bill Ayers, a former member of the Weather Underground. If anything, Barack Obama’s presidency proved how Americans have no boundaries in mistreating people and what is even more weird is they wonder why there exists such entities that harbor hatred for them and their country. When Barack Obama rebuked United States being a Judeo-Christian nation that raised scorned. His statement: “One of the great strengths of the United States,” the President said, “is … we have a very large Christian population — we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”

On May 26, 1797 Second Former US President John Adams produced a peace treaty between the United States and the Barbary Pirates in Tripoli, Libya. Article 11 of the document proclaims that America was not founded on the Christian religion. The first Amendment of America’s constitution grants the rights to practice any religion but forbids establishing laws to nationalize any form of worship.
A copy of the Treaty of Tripoli:

The most popular strange story is the forged birth certificate that allegedly validates Barack Obama’s ineligibility for being a president of the United States. According to the Fourteenth Amendment, Obama is approved to be the president over his alleged birth in Hawaii but McCain being born at a military base in Panama is not. But there are two defunct newspaper, the Honolulu Advertiser and the Star Bulletin who recorded the August 4th, 1961 birth of Barack Obama. People are going as far as saying those newspaper birth announcements were altered.

Hussein H. Barack. “Births, Marriages, and Deaths.” Honolulu Advertiser, The (HI) 13 Aug 1961 Births: B-6. print
The Health Department of Hawaii responded to people who have denounced these birth announcements in those two newspaper as fraudulent and declared that they have Obama’s birth certificate.
“We don’t destroy vital records,” Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo said. “That’s our whole job, to maintain and retain vital records.”
Eleanor Nordyke, a mother of twin daughters was in labor at the same time as the late mother of Obama, Stanley Ann Dunham. Both of them were at the Honolulu’s Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital. Nordyke gave birth on the day after Obama was born and her daughters later attended Punahou School with Obama. The Health Department sends birth statistics to to newspapers which they receive the information directly from hospitals, Okubo said.

Michael Ruppert’s website What Really Happened.com has a great article verifying that these birthers are the ones who are fomenting a conspiracy. The alleged Kenyan birth certificates had either missing or inaccurate pieces of information that would support their authenticity. The birth certificates from the colony of Kenya are supposed to have a baby’s footprint on them. One other fake birth certificate has used an Australian template of their birth certificate and also contained historically faulty information. The location of birth is given as Mombasa, but Mombasa was part of the state of Zanzibar until December of 1963. This certificate is dated February 1964 and carries the name “Republic of Kenya”, Kenya did not formally declare itself a Republic until December of 1964; at the time they would have stopped using British regulatory paperwork. EF Lavender (the name given as Registrar) is a laundry detergent. The certificate uses the label “Christian name” in a nation that is predominantly Muslim. There were no “provinces” in Kenya until 1970. Prior to that they were called “Districts”.

Fact Check.org has covered many denouncements and has slammed Donald Trump’s regurgitated everyone’s insistent sureness of Obama’s birth in Kenya. The researchers have outlined the distortions that the media has made including mistranslations of Barack’s paternal grandmother Sarah Obama during her interview. Federal courts already dismissed the case of Philip Berg, the man who filed a lawsuit against Obama. The reason is Berg omitted some parts of the translation that Ron McRae made from the Luo language to English. What Berg misinterpreted was that she didn’t attend the Hawaiian hospital during Obama’s birth but she was present in Kenya and received news about it. Kapi’olani can’t legally release individually identifiable health information without that person’s permission because of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Fact Check.org provided an audio recording of the whole interview and the whole thing did not even quote Obama’s grandmother confirming that he was in Kenya.
Copy of the omitted transcript;
McRae: Okay, uh, when I come in December I would like to go by the, the place, the hospital where he is born. Uh, could you tell me where he was born? Was he born in Mombasa? (Long pause) . . .
Translator: No, no — what? . . . No! Obama was not born in Mombasa. He was born in America.
McRae: Wh-whereabouts, whereabouts was he born? I, I thought he was born in Kenya.
Translator: No he was born in America, not in Mombasa.
McRae: OK. Do you know whereabouts he was born?
McRae: Do you know where he was born? I thought he was born in Kenya. I was gonna go by and see where he was born. . . .
Translator: Sir, she says he was born in Hawaii.
Translator: Yeah, in 1960 this was Hawaii, where his father, his father was also marrying there. This was Hawaii.
McRae: OK. . . . I thought you said she was present. Was she, was, was she, was she able to see him being, being born in, in Hawaii? . . .
Translator: No, no! The, the woman was not present. She was uh not, a what — you see, she was here in Kenya, and Obama was born in America. That is, that’s obvious.

Aimee Yatsushiro or Katherine Nakamoto, retired Kindergarten teachers remember Obama being in their class. Yatsushiro recalled him being a good listener from the time he was little. Nakamoto, was assigned to the same kindergarten class from January to June of 1967. Nakamoto said she never used a nickname to describe her students “We called him Barack. . . . He was very well mannered, respectful, confident and independent.” Nakamoto said he was nicely dressed as seen by the photo Maui News both teachers holding a class picture of him smiling and wearing a white shirt.
Both Nakamoto and Yatsushiro hadn’t thought about Obama and their teaching experiences with his kindergarten class until early last year when they saw him on TV and about him running for president. Soon after seeing Obama on the Oprah television talk show, Yatsushiro pulled out a spring 1967 kindergarten class photograph that her supervising teacher Kazuko Sakai had mailed her with a note about how the children were still talking about their former student-teacher. In the photograph, Nakamoto is seen standing behind a 5-year-old Obama.
“He (Obama) was always nicely dressed,” Nakamoto said as she looked at the old photograph recently. “He wasn’t outstanding in any way like being naughty or anything. I just remember him being confident, like the way a president should be.”

America’s own naturalization laws never recognized children who are born to foreigners to be other than aliens if the parent had not declared their allegiance to the United States. The writers of this law intended children under national law to follow the citizenship of their parents until they have become naturalized. But those birth announcements found in those two Hawaiian newspapers isn’t good enough so these fake birth certificate claims will persist.
Here’s a text of the 14th Amendment;
“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

My readers are wondering: why does Barack Obama appear to be the most hated president in US history? Well I never understood until I read an article from Sorcha Faal. The author presented information about a future coup d’etat to overthrow President Barack Obama. All of it planned by the US Military over him allegedly violating America’s constitution. People do not recognize that he is following similar proposals made by previous former American presidents. Companies under the direction of US military officers are allegedly destabilizing the Obama regime with propaganda just so once his overthrow takes place, no one would be surprise.
US military leaders are worried about the level of debt that Obama has added which could lead America to an economic collapse. US Military spending cuts began on January 1, 2013 and speculations have been made about how it would affect the whole economic system. Sorcha Faal has alerted her readers to the up and coming gun grab based on the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. This law banning single hand-held firearms would leave Americans defenseless if they resist brainwashing in Obama’s reeducation camps. Faal received a copy of the law from her Russian sources listing unconstitutional measures which include:
1.) Obama’s authorizing the assassination of US citizens without their having charges made against them or being able to defend themselves at trials.
2.) Allowing the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to conduct murders on US soil.
3.) Allowing the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to tap the phones, intercept the emails, and in other ways spy upon the American public;
4.) Allowing the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct against the American people the largest spy operation ever undertaken.
5.) Conduct an illegal and un-Constitutional war against Libya.
6.) Obama’s overturning of US laws by executive power without Congressional approval.
Of the gravest concerns about Obama these US Military commanders have is his 6 July 2012 Executive Order giving him total power over all communication systems in the United States. His 16 May 2012 Executive Order outlaws any American citizen from writing or saying Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi was elected to office because he ran unopposed.

Obama is planning to eliminate the military industrial complex. This enterprise profits not only through potential military conflict, but sustains its market based on costs for the formulation of alternative designs and production methods in weapon’s procurement.

Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette, commander of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) currently located in the Middle East was ordered to be removed from his position by Obama over these fears of being overthrown.

The sales of handguns and ammunition increased and its reasons have to do with the November 2012 election. Gun sales were high since Barack Obama became president and it is becoming disturbing; other presidents have not been faced with such hostility so Americans are acting paranoid about a race war between whites and blacks? Gun manufacturers like Sturm, Ruger & Co are even having trouble keeping up with orders. The Southport Connection based company had to suspend distributorship after taking orders for more than 1 million guns. Smith & Wesson sales are up and a Georgia Gun Store claimed that people are scared that they will loose their rights to own firearms; I guess people assume that Obama will take their guns. Bill Clinton invoked laws that restricted civilian access to assault weapons but people weren’t stockpiling firearms when he was in office at the rate they are during Obama’s term.

There is another element has to why how the permanent war economy actually keeps the financial security of the United States stable. Reducing human populations to a manageable number easily limits the risk of all non-renewable resources being used. Most population control activists emphasis the unequal people-to-resources ratio and how there is not enough on planet earth to support an increasing human population. William Cooper’s book Behold a Pale Horse informs readers about how all of these international wars were a great tool for population control.
Sorcha Faal may be right about the growing militarization of America’s police officers for preparation against US soldiers who will turn against Obama. The Justice Department already awarded an $111M grant to hire 800 US military veterans for law enforcement positions. The grant money provided by the Justice Department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Service, are part of President Barack Obama’s initiative to provide employment for veterans who can utilize the skills they learned in the military.

Another eye catching illustration is a picture published by the New York Post of Obama signing a document and two policemen shooting a chimpanzee. Captioned above the cops reads: “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.” Just imagine the outcry if George Bush was in the picture instead of Barack Obama.

One of the deputies associated with the infamous Maricopa Country sheriff Joe Arpaio stated that Barack Obama might suffer a JFK syndrome. JFK is the former US President John F. Kennedy who was assassinated in the 1960’s.
Obama Death Wish by Arpaio’s Deputy? posted by Humanleague002
People are hostile towards Barack Obama over his complicity in America’s current economic recession. Americans are ignorant of the fact that the United States gained its power through indirectly managing and funding various wars whether secret or public. America must control the raw minerals and natural resources of other countries to delay the collapse of their economy. The majority of manufacturing jobs were shipped overseas to the point where America doesn’t manufacture that very many commodities (goods). The country truly runs on an economic system based on investing in warfare. The war on drugs has expanded the role of Law Enforcement Agencies not in just America, but around the world. The creation of new armaments and other inventories have always been an investment in the United States as they prepare for future conflicts.
A private investment in its military industrial complex has always existed. The book False Flag: A History of United States Government Sponsored Terrorism and Espionage reveals how both the first and second World Wars instantly made America a superpower. They recognized how war can weaken the economic strength of a nation. To prevent the collapse of their economy America must maintain its notoriety of having a powerful military to diplomatically coerce other nations to use American currency despite its deteriorating value.
Obama did not drive America into debt America’s war with Iraq caused them to have a $3 trillion war tab. Paul B. Farrell wrote the article America’s Outrageous War Economy!; Pentagon can’t find $2.3 trillion, wasting trillions on ‘national defense’ and he included some information from a few sources that reveal the fallacy of their war economy. Farrell proves that the majority of the money can only build private fortunes for those who run the military industrial complex. What is even more troubling is that there are no records for $2.3 trillion in unsupported entries that was made back in the year 2000. The Defense inspector general told Congress that his auditors stopped once it reached that amount.
In 2007, the Pentagon had $440 billion included $16 billion to operate and upgrade its financial system. Spending billions to fix its antiquated financial systems and still not having any idea what the money being used for. Farrell noted a statement by Congressional Office of Technology Assessment staffer explaining why weapon systems cost the Pentagon so much, “why it takes decades to get them into production even as innovation in the civilian economy becomes ever more frenetic and why some of those weapons don’t work very well despite expenditures of many billions of dollars,” and how “the internal politics of the armed services make weapons acquisition almost unmanageable.”
The Pentagon is the one who is wasting trillions of dollars planning its wars in advance and this article by Paul B. Farrell was published before Barack Obama became president of the United States. The money it costs to have a lifetime veterans’ health benefits program, equipment placement costs, increased homeland security and interest on new federal debt, and suddenly taxpayers got a $3 trillion war tab. Farrell also cites Kevin Phillips’ warning in “Wealth and Democracy:” “Most great nations, at the peak of their economic power, become arrogant and wage great world wars at great cost, wasting vast resources, taking on huge debt, and ultimately burning themselves out.” That is how America destroyed its own economy so even if America had someone else as the president instead of Obama, the financial plight of the country would still remain.

Stories pour in throughout the networks foretelling the risk of job losses as Barack Obama continues to stay in office for another four years. Americans assume that his policies are affecting the whole economy and to a degree there is little truth of these allegations. The employment opportunities loss are mostly trades and careers that are tied to military and defense related projects. In the beginning of January 2013, Congress may have to risk facing an automatic spending or what is known as “sequestration.” Usually the defense budget and social security are exempt from sequestration.
On August 7, 2012 Obama signed the Sequestration Transparency Act and the bill can allow defense budgets to be erased in the future. Americans of all races and colors want to be anti-government but they need to respect that these budgets were contemplated way before Obama came into power.

Before September 11, 2001, Defense Secret Robert M. Gates had already called for cuts in the size of the Army and Marine Corps which would reduce military spending. The budgets that finance the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are separate from the Pentagon operating budget. Planned reductions in the military by 2015 and 2016 would save them $5 or $6 billion. These cuts would equal about savings in $100 billion dollars according to the armed services. Separately, the Defense Department bureaucracy identified about $54 billion more from reducing contractor hiring, freezing personnel rolls, reducing the number of generals and admirals and closing or consolidating headquarters. Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that all four service chiefs supported the proposals, and that the military would still be able to manage global risks. “We can’t hold ourselves exempt from the belt-tightening,” he said. “Neither can we allow ourselves to contribute to the very debt that puts our long-term security at risk.”

Aerospace Industries Association estimates that the $1.2 trillion dollars would be subtracted in defense and domestic programs would began at the start of 2013 cutting 2 million jobs. In Oklahoma, roughly 8,000 defense-related jobs would disappear. These budget cuts were a part of an agreement to slash spending by $2 trillion over 10 years to lift America’s burrowing limit.

Contracts for various defense-related projects in Broward County have dropped from $348 million in 2008 to $285 million last year, and in Palm Beach County from $811 million in 2008 to $431 million in 2011, according to the Florida League of Defense Contractors. But in Miami-Dade County, home of the U.S. Southern Command headquarters, defense contracts grew from $323 million in 2008 to $592 million last year.
The state of Florida will lose 80,000 thousand jobs if congress does not come up with a long term budget plan to tame the national debt. Cuts to the Pentagon’s military budget would eliminate 41,905 jobs and other parts of the funding including the federal workforce would account for 37,554 losses of job. BRS Aerospace of Pompano Beach, which makes disposable parachutes used for dropping supplies to troops in war zones like Afghanistan scaled back its workforce from 360 last year to about 100.
“We hired people to help them get on their feet,” said CEO and President Larry Williams. “But we just can’t keep them if the contracts don’t keep going. If they cut back too much, we will end up closing that plant.”
Pratt & Whitney, a major aircraft contractor with about 1,000 workers in Palm Beach County, plans to host a rally on Aug. 8 at a warehouse near West Palm Beach to rouse public support and put pressure on Congress to avoid deeper cuts to defense spending. About 250 employees and U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Palm Beach Gardens, are expected to take part. Other companies, including many in South Florida, that make parts for military jets and weapons systems are amongst the most affected by budget reduction. Companies associated with military “simulation” training, clustered in Central Florida, fortunately were spared.
Joe Marino, president of the Florida League of Defense Contractors is foreseeing that small and medium-sized businesses will experience subcontracting opportunities delayed or altogether vanishing in the next year. Members of Congress say they are concerned about lost jobs, but they remain divided on how to reduce spending over time to avoid sequestration. Most Democrats insist on closing tax loopholes and drawing more revenue from affluent Americans to help close budget gaps. Most Republicans refuse to consider tax increases. The parties also clash on what parts of the budget to cut.

These budgets cuts are very serious for people living in the state of Arizona since they have created more jobs there than any other entity through its military contracts with private companies. Boeing, General Dynamics C4 Systems, Raytheon Missile System and BAE Systems employ 93,000 people in Arizona to work on assignments for defense equipment. In 2010, more than 150,000 Arizonans worked for employers involved directly or indirectly with the defense and aerospace industries. Boeing employs 4,900 Arizonans, the majority working at the Mesa facility, where it builds attack helicopters for the US Army.
Dan Beck, director of international, business development and strategy communications for Boeing said the Mesa operation is vital and would not shut down under any circumstances. The Arizona defense and aerospace industry has been preparing to adapt to their budget loss by looking for new business opportunities aboard. The distribution of military hardware to countries in the Middle East, Asia, and the South Pacific was on idea and the other includes an increased emphasis on non-military applications for their products, such as cyber security and the private space industry.

Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray, the state’s Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force issued reports about how the state of Massachusetts has become dependent on military spending. The task force released information about its study and concluded that the state’s six military bases support more than 45,000 jobs, and pump $13.7 billion into the state economy each year. James T. Brett, president of the New England Council said these spending cuts will affect defense contractors in the state and military missions at its bases. He suggested that reductions in entitlement programs such as Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security would lessen the impact.

Minnesota could loose $129 million in federal funding and 3,000 state employees whose salaries are paid with federal funding can lose their jobs. Every congressional district in Minnesota holds some kind of defense contract and pro-defense spending Center for Security Policy says all of those contracts could be cancelled. With just an 18% percent hit to defense budget more than $349 million in Minnesota business revenue could be loss for each of the next nine years. The state could lose 4,619 defense-related jobs if these reductions go forward. Farley’s & Sathers Candy Co. in Round Lanke Minnesota has sold millions of dollars worth of Chuckles, Red Hots, gummy-textured sweets, and chocolates to the Department of Defense since they store them in military commissaries. If these reductions are approved then they lose a rich customer. The funding will filter into low-income housing subsidies, special-education funding, clean drinking water grants and elsewhere.

A 1993 Congressional study has reported that five industries could gain more than 1,000 jobs if they transferred $3 billion dollars from the Pentagon’s account to state and local governments. Congressional researchers said 23,600 jobs could be created if money was diverted to programs that support education, road projects, and sewer construction. David H. Vargas, a former economist for the Aerospace Industries Association stated that budgets would be devastated to the aerospace since the number of people employed in the military aircraft industry has been decreasing since the 1990’s. There were 401,000 people in 1986 compared to the estimated number of 299,000 in 1993.
Vargas also mentioned that these defense related jobs are more secure since they generate exports. DRI/McGraw-Hill, an economic forecasting and consulting firm, was used in the study to estimate job development in 429 industries. Jobs involved in road construction, sewer construction, engineering, architecture, and surveying services, private contractors doing repair on schools and other projects, and providers of nursing and personal care are examples of opportunities that would increase. In the fields and television communication equipment manufacturing and guided missile production would account for more than a thousand jobs lost.

The polices for industrial development has always been run by the Pentagon since the end of World War 2. Our commercial jet and computer industries and most recently the internet were all byproducts of investments by the Pentagon into developing markets for new technologies they’ve conceived earlier. According to Prof. Robert Pollin, Co director of the PERI (Political Economy Research Institute) the costs for creating new technologies exceeds the actual military budget.
America has an Industrial Policy – It’s Run by the Pentagon
The Military-Industrial Complex is considered a union between officials in the Pentagon and organizations who ideas are focused on developing defense-related technologies. Those planning for war will receive the supplies necessary for waging an effective war while furthering political interests abroad.
Staff Writer. What is the Military Industrial Complex? Attempting to define the “Military Industrial Complex” 02/2013 Militaryindustrialcomplex.com
In 2001, estimations of the consequences of reduced budgets sowed a preconceived notion of the US military steadily becoming weaker as a defense force. The military argues that excess capacity is needed to continue a surge in production in case a major threat emerges. Defense analysts do not foresee any major threats in the next 15 to 30 years and equipment used to fight low-to-medium-level conflicts can easily produced without retaining such excess industrial capacity. National Security has been the rationale used to close the U.S. defense sector to foreign competition. Compared to foreign competitors, one single large U.S. company in a defense sub-sector could compete with large companies from other countries. Until World War II and the Cold War, the United States had no permanent arms industry. Civilian industries were converted to weapons production and then reconverted after the conflicts ended.
The military industrial complex cannot create any American jobs during peacetime, unless an active war is taking place; there is not a drive to push military innovation forward. Eland noted on the difficulties of introducing more competition into the defense industry. Two manufactures that can produce defense goods efficiently would be considered an equal amount of competition. To keep it all balanced both companies located in two separate American states would each build a separate component for the hardware requested.
Fears of country obtaining obsolescent US military technology and making modifications have always been a concern for officials at the Pentagon. It may have inspired bureaucrats to make such regulations that discourage the merging of both the defense and commercial sector in the US economy. If America expanded their defense sector towards other commercial industries it would secure a hidden kink in their defense technologies. The development of various technologies in the commercial marketplace is rapidly growing, outpacing the technology made by sluggish defense bureaucracies. The Pentagon’s very demanding and unique noncommercial specifications for weapons are a major barrier for many commercial firms.
Commercial semiconductors now meet the environmental standards of the military and are more reliable, much more advanced technologically, and cheaper than military semiconductors. Yet excessive military specifications and procurement regulations have led many of the top commercial semiconductor firms to refuse business from DOD, which means that the military pays exorbitant prices for obsolete, specially designed circuits. U.S. Airborne Warning and Control System aircraft is the most technologically advanced military airborne early-warning system in the world, its technology is now primitive by commercial standards. The Pentagon strictly makes invests on militarily unique products that could not be replicated commercially, thus wasting billions of dollars in the process. The U.S. military has traditionally obtained its technological edge from expending large amounts of government R&D (Research and Development) funds to the task rather than from spending money efficiently.

Lieutenant Colonel Blair A. Peterson reinstated similar remarks about the difficulties of generating a competitive market in the defensive industry. His article Defense Industry: An Illusion of a Free Market also notes on the majority of US dollars going into producing military systems where competition for development is quite limited. The high costs of bringing additional manufacturers would increase the budget; narrowing the only option of one customer (monopsony) and a limited number of suppliers (oligopoly).

There is no open market in the defense industry so that is a big indicator that specific individuals in the Pentagon have their own underground business. If development for military related projects expand into the open economy then a large investment into weapons procurement would lose its profitability. The US military’s outright refusal to buy commercially available products for its weapons systems certainly doesn’t promote economic growth; those components and parts that form the complete construction of military hardware are only made by very few companies.
BAE Systems, a Multinational company dedicated its entire development on defense related production. They build Avionic and Electronic systems designed for military applications and are the amongst the largest defense contractor’s in the world. They have home markets that were established through mutual partnerships with investments in local businesses in Australia, India, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
They are affected by the cuts in Western military budget that they will buy back shares worth 1 billion in British Pound. Withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan already depressed land vehicle and armaments sales in the US, which are down 60 per cent since 2008. High quality global journalism requires investment. Pre-tax profits fell 6 per cent to £1.37bn in 2012, while sales slumped 7 per cent to £17.83bn. The decline was led by the group’s US division, which accounts for 40 percent of revenues.

Sequestration isn’t going to ruin America’s economy, it will only destroy the investments from many conglomerates within the Defense establishments. Many of them are directly linked to the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm who raises money for wealthy individuals for high risk investment purposes. Named after the Carlyle hotel of New York City this Washington DC (District of Columbia) based firm has seen its quick fall after the ending of the Cold War and is now experiencing their instant rise to wealth after the first Gulf War. George Bush Sr., has ties to the Carlyle group and investments into the Saudi monarchy are behind immunity of investigating Saudis in their role in terrorism.

US Military personnel who are targeting Obama must remember that the budget cuts will never make a difference so they’d better watch it. General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified before a Senate committee alongside Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned that budget cuts could lead to war. Dempsey claimed that cutbacks will cause a cancellation of weapons systems and disrupt “global operations.” America will loose its global standing giving the opportunities for enemies to test American military might.
I notice the article never mentions that many of these US military bases existed during the Cold War and still operating even after the Soviet Union’s collapse. America was using a perceive notion to encircle bigger adversaries (China, Russia, and Iran) and these budget cuts would force them to abandon strategic positions they once occupied. The War on Terrorism was the perfect reason to maintain US military global hegemony and Defense officials want to continue funding operations abroad.

All of these articles regarding President Obama are questionable and need full understanding and when I used Sorcha Faal’s information I had to find proof that there is no sustained economy in the defense industry unless there is a major war taking place. This has nothing to do with Obama so I never understood why a man accused of being anti-American would run for president. It seems like scandals were easily exposed as his popularity arose. George Bush Jr., literally got away with sending the US military into a war based on a lie, meanwhile Bill Clinton got impeached for having an affair with Monica Lewinski. Things that I have noticed is the moment Barack Obama became the Commander-in-Chief Americans are becoming more suspicious of their government to the point of stockpiling firearms. All of these message of suspicion over Obama’s presence in the White House is all a part of PSY-OP (Psychological Operation) designed to reduce any feelings of support as his attempted assassination nears.
Just to let my readers know, I have something to reveal as to why I am concerned for president Barack Obama. Before the attacks on September 11, 2001, I remember a TV (television) show “Freedom” broadcasted on UPN station. What will happen to Obama and the idea is from that show Freedom is Air Force One falls out of the sky and the president is presumed dead. Some American dissident within the US military must’ve of manipulated the electronic systems of Air Force One or reconfigured the mechanics of the jet. America’s constitution gets suspended and Martial Law gets declared; hints of a war in the Middle East is on the beginning of the action/thriller based sitcom. A summary of the plot was written on Internet Movie Database and it cites renegade military forces taking over the US government after a coup. Someone uploaded parts of an episode of the TV show on Youtube please watch it.
Freedom – Intro
Barack Obama doesn’t understand that there are members of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), the Secret Service, and members of Law Enforcement who have negative views about him. And if Secret Service who attempt to use some of their manpower to question and arrest people for any Anti-Obama comment are doing a bad job of protecting the Commander-in-Chief. Obama needs to be aware that his biggest enemies are in America’s Law Enforcement agencies and the US Military. If he allows ordinary citizens to physically defend themselves against all branches of Law Enforcement and the US military then that would increase his chance of surviving an assassination attempt.
The survival of Obama’s life lies on civilians being permitted to fight or even be able to repel any US military or Police action because a good Samaritan may come across him in a back alley or dark corner being stabbed or shot by the authorities. There is a pecking order within the highest levels of the United States Government which is separated between the secret and super-secret. Obama signing this bill didn’t realize that he created enemies who have links to the people who are sworn to guard his safety. Obama just destroyed a private investment that is closely guarded by officials at the Pentagon; the safety of Obama and his family lies in Americans being able to defend themselves against military personnel and law enforcement members.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was signed by President Barack Hussein Obama and in that bill which passed there is nothing that restricts American citizens being able to defend themselves. If a cop or a swat team decides to raid any house within the United States of America and gets killed in the process then the NDAA act some feel is already considered a declaration of war against not only the American people but all countries around the world. In the US many murders and assassination attempts have been made by entities under the guise of being police officers. They seem to be immune to any type of responsibility or blame over any disaster thus being able to arrest anyone with impunity. Indiana has passed a law approving the use of self defense with a firearm if cops unlawfully enter your home. That seems to be a fair protection against a cop being used to assassinate a citizen. Some people are concerned about how people are having revolting feelings against the government as America is finally experiencing their terms with their first black President.

To be honest it would be the dumbest anyone in the US, Israel, or around the world and for those who have investments in the US military industrial complex; his death will not secure your profits. It is hard to create a market for the manufacturing of military hardware, those two international wars that took place during the first half of the 20th century generated America’s wealth. The alleged threat and fears of Communism prolonged the continuing development and distribution of military related items and even under those tumultuous periods military procurement was still hard to sustain in the market. That is why Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or the popular term “Drones” are rapidly emerging as these devices can be built using off-the-shelf hardware. That is the only product that investors can place their financial input if commercial companies were allowed to design military technology.
People aren’t understanding that these policies of using Predator Drones and other UAVs to strike suspected terrorists abroad didn’t originate with President Barack Obama. These machines are the only way to manage global risks while America copes with their current debt crisis. The attempted assassination of alleged Al Qaeda leader Ali Qaed Senyan Al-Harthi occurred on November 5, 2002 in the country of Yemen. The Jeep he was in was struck by a missile fired from a Predator Drone. Yemeni authorities were monitoring that same vehicle enabling them to confirm he was amongst one of the six occupants killed.
“CIA ‘killed al-Qaeda suspects’ in Yemen.” BBC News World Edition. British Broadcasting Corporation, 5 November, 2002. Web. 8 Apr. 2013.
For nine years the United Nations (UN) kept silent about the campaign of assassination with Drones when former President George Bush was in office; now under Obama the UN has now called these attacks a “violation” of Pakistan’s sovereignty and classifies the killings a breach of human rights. I don’t understanding why international authorities turned a blind eye to the assassination campaign until now (year 2013). If Barack Obama does get impeached this program will still continue, the UN allows the imperial policies of America and any nation who belongs to the UN should not be acknowledged as a country.
Jerral, A. R. “Drones: UN Finally Wakes Up!” The Nation. Nation, 26 Mar. 2013. Web. 8 Apr. 2013. <http://www.nation.com.pk/pakistan-news-newspaper-daily-english-online/columns/26-Mar-2013/drones-un-finally-wakes-up>.
Investigations into drone strikes would interfere with investments in companies who build Unmanned Vehicles (UVs) and Obama’s substitution as a new commander-in-chief inspired a leak of the secret Drone campaign. Americans need to realize that they are their own worst enemies; not the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, Al-Qaeda, or any adversary announced on their news feeds. A hit on Obama would destabilize the country and last year (2012) US Department of Homeland Security and the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Office have placed an order for 450 million rounds of .40 caliber bullets. The beginning synopsis of the TV show Freedom mentions domestic terrorism spiraling out of control so I am guessing US military members who are against Barack Obama will stage false bombing and other mayhem. Middle Eastern terrorists and anyone who opposes the US Government would be blamed not the real suspects who are members of the US armed forces.
Why are DHS and ICE stockpiling ammo? by RTAmerica of Russiatoday
F.E.A.R., which stands for Forever Enduring Always Ready is an anarchist Militia group who have already gathered $87,000 dollars of weapons and bomb making materials. There ultimate goal is to overthrow the United States Government and assassinate President Obama. A former soldier of the US army and his girlfriend were murdered to keep the plot secret according to investigators who apprehended the suspects. There was no information as to why do these four men who are active members of the US Army their reasons for wanting to not only remove Obama from office but also bomb targets in Savannah and, Georgia and Washington state. It seems that disagreements that US veterans have had or would join right wing groups didn’t invite any more questioning to provide addition details. Just like when Americans apprehend terrorists from the Middle East there are reports of reasons for the suspect’s motives.

One other tip to prevent an attempt on Obama’s life is to allow US citizens to closely monitor and independently investigate members of its military, law enforcement, and intelligence organizations. Undercover teams can even be created to watch members who are active members of Homeland Security. Those companies who make all types of supplies and weapons for military usage do not want wars to end. The Vietnam war is what created the debt that America faces. They were forced to leave the gold standard in the 1970’s to delay an economic collapse. Printing out more money further increased America’s debt so all consumer based manufacturing jobs are shipped overseas. It is cheaper to manufacture goods in China and consumers in the US can never see the link between less expensive commodities being sold on the US market and a labor force who is paid lower wages. That is how America is able to maintain its productivity with a currency (US dollar) that isn’t backed by any precious metals. A strong military is needed to coerce oil rich countries into selling oil in United States (US) dollars only.
All of these government bureaucracies are against him and unlike John F. Kennedy, with the use of previous written executive orders and other laws to militarize America’s police, Obama is using these to prepare for his overthrow. President Obama must hire mechanics to keep checking the electronic systems of Air Force One. The plane will fall out of sky and these civil disturbances and riots can be a starting point for Martial Law. The Vietnam War is what place his country in debt, Obama is being scapegoated.
That is the message I got from looking at these articles I had to use these written accounts and descriptions to explain why overthrowing President Barack Obama would be pointless and it wouldn’t instantly improve the economy. It turns out the Pentagon has been loosing money on military spending way before Obama came into power and had already planned on stripping their budget. What is even strange but not surprising is that a black president is on spotlight as main character of movies featuring portrayals of dramatic scenes. Trust me, America places itself in debt so removing Obama isn’t going to change anything, there are only a few people in control and fewest companies who have lifelong contracts with the military industrial complex.
The materials used in assembling America’s military hardware instantly become obsolete so many of these weapons could be outdated. That indicates a hidden reason as to why America isn’t ready for another war against Iran. America is financing coups and rebellions in the Middle East under the guise of fighting Islamic fundamentalism and they can sure use that stockpile of weapons they accumulated during the Cold War period to aid Israel and other friendly Arab states. Americans don’t understand that move won’t secure America’s economy it would interfere with economic development of Iran and Israel. Those two more powerful states in the Middle East will destroy each other if they engage in a war thus further delaying the collapse of the American economy. America has its ways to avoid the dollar crashing with or without Obama and to try to put a bounty on his head is stupid. For a secret service to investigate this website over these strange articles from Sorcha Faal is a dumb thing as they are wasting their time. These old TV shows and movie of America is collapsing is what gave me the idea of how Obama and his country would be attacked.
Members of the F.E.A.R. militia group were only charged with murdering a US soldier. They were not charged for breaking any laws that are proposed in Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act. That would have even these four men reveal who other active members of FEAR since the US is concerned about sleeper cells. Suspending the constitution and introducing martial law isn’t going turn the economy around unless America needs to reduce their own population by sending their unemployed to war to cope with shortage of natural resources. FEAR never explained their political views makes their suspicion about Obama even more ludicrous.
General Martin Dempsey and Leon Panetta have not mentioned the new military installations being put in place on the continent of Africa. They want to have enough money to keep their old bases operating while building new ones for the Pentagon’s AFRICOM (African Command). Africa has minerals America needs to continue weapons development but it still wouldn’t secure the longevity of the military industrial complex.
More information on AFRICOM can be found at this link to my article:
America has a habit of trying to identifying and stooping as far as slamming certain countries and even ethnic groups for various mistakes. When you look and research America’s history all of the presidents seem to have a scandalous past but people want to criticize and remove President Obama for a problem he didn’t actually start. Barack Obama’s term in office proves that Americans are a danger not only to the rest of the world but their very own selves. The military industrial complex will not save the economy, but that is the trouble with Americans they are quick to become confrontational when their influence is being threatened. Some are starting to think if the country cannot solve its own problems domestically then why should they have the right to interfere with others in the international arena.
They always had the technology and foundations to fix their own economic woes yet continue to feign dependency on the resources of others. If officials in the highest levels of government are desperate enough to stage an attack against President Obama just to continue being a militarily superior nation then America should not be recognized as a country. America is way too advanced to be acting like a bunch of warrior nomads and that goes for other developed countries as well.
