One reason why it is so easy to predict a business-as-usual Obama presidency is the people that Obama has surrounded himself with. Former New York Federal Reserve chairman Timothy Geithner for Secretary of the Treasury; former Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence Summers for National Economic Council director; Bush’s Defense Secretary Robert Gates will keep his job; Illinois Representative Rahm Emanuel for Obama’s Chief of Staff; Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State; Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano for Secretary of Homeland Security; former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle to head the Health and Human Services Department; former Assistant Attorney General Eric Holder to be Attorney General; New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as Secretary of Commerce; Susan Rice for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; Paul Volcker for the Economic Recovery Advisory Board; James Steinberg as Deputy Secretary of State; Mona Sutphen for Deputy White House Chief of Staff, and Louis Caldera for Director of the White House Military Office.
Does anyone see “change” with the above names? Every one of them is a longtime political insider. And at least 11 of them are members of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). In fact, six out of the 11 cabinet-level positions in the Obama administration are CFR members.
The CFR has dominated both Democrat and Republican presidential administrations for decades. Presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton have all been members of the CFR. Vice presidents such as Hubert Humphrey, Nelson Rockefeller, Walter Mondale, and Dick Cheney have been CFR members. And over the last several decades, practically every secretary of defense, secretary of the treasury, and most CIA directors have been CFR members. And let’s not forget that this year’s Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, is a CFR member.
Do you now see why—no matter who is elected president of the United States—nothing changes? Republican or Democrat, it does not matter: the CFR and their collaborators remain in power. And as Sonny and Cher used to sing, “The Beat Goes On.”
There will be no real change in Washington, DC, until the CFR and their elitist cronies are thoroughly and universally removed from power. And the only way this will happen is if we elect an independent president of the United States (someone who truly understands the New World Order and is dedicated to defeating it), because the two major parties will never allow someone opposed to the CFR to become their nominee. The only Republican candidate for president in 2008 who demonstrated those credentials was Ron Paul. And to a lesser degree, the only Democrat who even seemed to vaguely understand this was Dennis Kucinich. Notice that both men were thoroughly repudiated by their respective parties’ leadership and all but totally ignored by the national news media. (The CFR and their surrogates also control the national news media. What a coincidence!)
