We recently talked about the first shots fired in the internecine wars and in the currency wars.
Now lets put those two together and lets discuss a nexus between them.
But first things first.
In the first article the critical issue of the campaign was mentioned, which was the fact that it was a rejection election. The people rejected something.
That subject is all important to understanding what went down, so in the article we answered the question by saying that it was the Bush II status quo mentality and politics that was rejected.
The Bush II regime's despotic ideology does not sit well with Americans, and in fact it does not sit well with humane people across the globe. Not surprisingly then, it was soundly rejected.
Understanding and remembering that factor is equally important to understanding what will go down in various circumstances during the first term of the Obama Administration.
We already see the Obama Administration doing some knee jerk reactions by erroneously embracing some of the ideology that was rejected.
It was pointed out that in the recent internecine fighting within the administration, David Axelrod's closeness to the heartbeat of Americans and his counsel based upon that closeness was rejected by the president.
In place of it the cold bankster ideology of Geitner and his ilk drew Obama closer toward the very ideology that had just been rejected in the election.
Since it will be extremely difficult to change course of the titanic ship of state, now, this error will be with him and it will haunt him.
That error might not have been fatal in and of itself, but what will be fatal to his political popularity and future is the embracing the Bush II ghoulish philosophies of brutality and dishonesty.
If Obama continues to try to deny and ignore the Bush II regime's war crime mentality, which Cheney is still touting and rubbing in America's face, it will be politically fatal to Obama.
The winds of change will shift, and the roaring sound of the river of rejection will be heard again. Obama will be blown out of the hearts of Americans like the Bush II regime was.
We simply can not stand those things.
The American people together with the world soundly rejected, and will continue to soundly reject, those notions of darkness the despots seemingly cannot help but cling to.
That ideology of callous brutality and dishonesty, which sends shivers down the spines of humane people the world over.
Obama must be as serious about ending the wars, ending the notion of torture, ending the dishonest propaganda, and instead embrace a serious energy that prosecutes those who severely damaged America this past decade.
It was not foreigners who damaged America the most, instead, it was those who are still walking around thinking nothing at all will ever happen to them.
Those being protected by the Obama Administration up to this point; those who will destroy the Obama Administration like they destroy everything else they get a chance to destroy.
It is time for Obama to reject something; he must reject what the people rejected when they elected him.
In the second article we discussed the first shot across our economic bow. The main factor is not that China fired that shot, the main factor is that they were able to fire it without being condemned for it.
In the current economic climate China was able to publicly call for a new currency to replace the US Dollar. Sadaam Hussein's "last words" as a leader of a country was to call for the replacement of the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency.
But things have changed since then. At the G20 today France is threatening to walk out if it does not get its way.
The US is seen as the source of these catastrophic economic times, and if Obama continues to protect and embrace the policies people the world over have rejected, a storm of nastiness will blow across the globe, and Obama will loose more than his popularity at home.
It is time to bring some wrath down on the ideology and the perpetrators of the ideology that was rejected in our recent election.
If that does not happen, the damage that will be done as a result of that failure will not go unnoticed. I expect a 20% drop in popularity when all is said and done.
UPDATE: Holder is dropping all charges against Ted Stevens, a Senator who was convicted by a jury. No new charges will be brought. In most cases there is a new trial when prosecutors violate the Brady principle of providing exculpatory evidence to the defense lawyer. Then the court decides if the evidence that was not provided to the defense was sufficient to change a jury's mind. If so a new trial is the remedy, not a dismissal of the indictment. Stevens received special treatment.
Obama has nominated the bankster for the number two place at treasury who drafted the deregulation which some democrats say led in part to the current financial problems.
