America's Nightmare: The Obama Dystopia

May 25, 2009

by: Andrew Hughes




After 8 years of the Bush-Cheney nightmare during which we saw the wanton destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq, the cynical negation of centuries of Law designed to protect the most basic human rights and a foreign policy worthy of Genghis Khan, there came along the "Great Black Hope" in the persona of Barack Obama. The collective world consciousness turned uncritically to what was presented as a new era for peace, change and trust in Government.

Never before had one witnessed such an accomplished use of manipulation, propaganda, imagery and public relations wizardry to sell the public a man who was to take the baton from Bush and run with it in the race to destroy the economy, the rights of the people and help birth a nation totally controlled by those who have always lurked in the shadows of power. "Change" was promised and was delivered in the form of a deepening of the already Dystopic nightmare.

Promises were broken with no apology, the same creative legalese that infested the Bush administration, in the form of John Yoo and Alberto Gonzalez, was again used to deny justice to the inmates of Guantanamo, It was used to justify more torture, more destruction of the Constitution and more illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens.

The President that extended the hand of peace to the Muslim world has murdered hundreds of Pakistani men, women and children. The President who promised accountability in Government has filled his staff with lobbyists, banksters and warmongers. His Attorney General refuses to prosecute some of the worst war crimes committed in modern history and continues to give legal cover to criminals who tortured with impunity.

The country has been further bankrupted by the continuing theft of taxpayer money as the Wall St. campaign donors receive their quid pro quo. Obama has stood by idly as Bernancke states that the private Federal Reserve is not answerable to either Congress of the American public. The U.S. taxpayer is now on the hook for $14.3 Trillion and rising. Foreclosures and unemployment are rising with no meaningful efforts by the administration to alleviate the symptoms, never mind the cause. The new image of America is one of tent cities, lengthening soup kitchen lines, sherrifs evicting countless thousands of young and old from their homes, once prosperous towns descending in to an eerie stillness and an increasingly disillusioned populace.

The "War on terrorism" has mutated in to a control grid for an increasingly aware population. The foundation for this had already been put in place by Bush with the Patriot Act, Patriot Act 2, Military commissions act and numerous executive orders that strangled what was left of Posse Comitatus and the Constitution.

Homeland Security now defines "Terrorists" as those who believe in the Constitution, the first, second and fourth amendments. Returning veterans are being targeted for a denial of their second amendment rights. A "Terrorist Watchlist" of more than a million and rapidly growing, is being used as the basis for denying citizens the rights to travel and to work.

Obama is now mulling over the idea of indefinite detention without trial for U.S. citizens. This, from a teacher of the Constitution ! Bills are in congress to criminalize free speech on the Internet via the Cyberbullying Act which will make hurting somebody's feelings a felony. Just like the Patriot Act this will morph in to a criminalization of political free speech and any criticism of the Government.

"Cyberterrorism" is being used as a pretext to bring government regulation to the the last stronghold of unbiased information. Washington has realized that it's getting harder to get away with their Fascist agenda and are moving to control the field. The populace have become more aware of just what kind of "Change" Obama intended to deliver.

There has been a growing resistance on a state level with several invoking their 9th and 10th Amendment rights in a valiant attempt to stop the Federal Vampire from draining the last drops of blood, the last vestiges of Freedom and Hope.

This is the Dystopic Nightmare that America finds itself in today and each day brings new assaults on Freedom and Sanity. The framework for total control of the citizenry, the economy and the media is being built upon in a relentless aggrandization of Govermental power. Obama sits atop his new Empire still smiling that sickeningly disingenuous smile surrounded by his seasoned courtiers who have worked for decades to bring America in to this new era of the New World Order.

I found this on yournews.com Read it and think about it. Remember, I have voted for Democrats and Republicans. Today I am appalled at both political parties. God help our country.

Mr. Russ Gibb-Thanks for Mr. Hughes and his artical.
This is obviously what the people wanted and got-
This has been in the make for more than 40 years.
The pot smoking liberals wanted equality of intellect, socio-economic status and to be at par with the third world. They wanted to feel strife and experience hardship-Because of this culture of fear and guilt...America is rapidly becoming a second class world partner. My neighbor (a Veteran) was employed by Chrysler for many years had to turn his key (to his home) in last week. He served this country & raised five outstanding kids. He left his home without fanfare or complaint. He had lived in his home and dutifully made payments for at least 15 years. Now he is living (I am told) in a rental home up North.
He will not make the papers-The President won't use him in one of his pointless speeches-But he pays the price and has already carried the burden for reckless behavior and mindless decisions
Our President is now in charge of our cars, money, loans/banks (and soon) health care.
The unions pushed for this socialist nightmare and got what they wanted.

So, what is left? A few angry citizens who are tired, disillusioned and bewildered by the stupidity of the masses. If they speak up (and many will) they will be dubbed fanatics, right wingers, lunatics, etc. Freedom was never free and carried a cost and an inherent responsibility. We have let that slip away along with our rights and our self respect. Ted Kennedy got his wish! Jimmy Carter got his wish! A government run society where everyone is equally equal and equally dependent on government for their existence.

We are now "The world" and it is a dumping ground for mediocirty at best-
Pride is gone-Government cheese has been replaced with governmnet healthcare, cars, banks, schooling, etc.
The cheese...the cheese was bad to begin with

It is time for another Tea party

Kurtis T.
Angry at best!

Russ, Andrew Hughes' screed on impending doom sent me
scurrying to my dictionary to look up dystopia. And just as I'd feared,
it's the antonym of utopia! And if that wasn't bad enough, it carries the
dreadful definition, "an imagined state or place where everything is
unpleasant or bad." Hughes then goes on to invoke mention of the good old
Posse Comitatus. Back to my Oxford American for another look: "a body of
men in a country whom the sheriff could summon to enforce the law." Then to
ice it, old Andrew proceeds to use the posse as a modifier of the
constitution. Posse Comitatus and the Constitition in the same sentence!
For heavens sake!! The last time I encountered the old posse was years ago
when the John Birch society was out and about frightening the women and
children and raping the horses. I agree, it's all scary but Hughes is the
one who scares me.
