American Election: An Illusion Of Democracy
By Dr. Elias Akleh
Once again, as it has been happening every four years, the American people are suckered into surrendering their necks to a different yoke of slavery through the process of so-called “democratic election” of their president. Little they know that this president, and his administration, is but a tool used by the power elite – international financiers, military industrialists, energy companies and corporatocracy – to control resources, transfer wealth upwards, keep the populace in check, enslave them, suppress their dissent, and conscribe them into wars of greed against their human neighbors. This power elite, with its handful financial institutions, had dominated most of the natural resources of the world through its control of the money needed to acquire these resources. A natural resources monopoly system was, thus, created in the US, and many parts of the world, based solely on capital gain and profit rather than the well being of human life.
This power elite has gained total control over the American government and its departments, and dictates its laws and its foreign policies. President Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) stated the following:
“The bold efforts the present bank has made to control the government are but premonition of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into perpetuation of this institution, or the establishment of another like it.”
Despite his warning the power elite succeeded in establishing central banks, that control and manipulate the money of their perspective countries, and to create the Federal Reserve Bank in the US; a nongovernmental privately owned financial institution that makes its own policies and is virtually under no regulation by the American government. It is a private bank that creates money out of thin air, not backed by precious metals, and loans it to the government at interest. It is the exact old British fraudulent central banking model the Americans sought to escape from when they declared independence in the American Revolutionary War. The Federal Reserve Bank controls, now, the American money supply, inflation, loans, and interest. In 1913 the then presidential candidate Woodrow Wilson, who agreed to sign the Federal Reserve Act in exchange for bankers’ financial campaign support, later wrote in regret:
“Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men, who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated government in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”
Congressman Louis McFadden expressed this enslaving Federal Reserve Act after its passage:
“A world banking system was being set up here … a super state controlled by international bankers … acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. The Fed has usurped the government.”
The Federal Reserve Bank had created a monetary system with built in defaults and bankruptcy that had become the bases of the American economy. Through increasing inflation, control of interest rates and perpetual debts the Federal Reserve Bank keeps the American public in inescapable indentured servitude. This is virtual slavery, where the American public spends all their lives paying the national debt that had reached, lately, trillions of Dollars. This American monetary society, where everything could be bought and sold, including the loyalties of politicians and presidents, is in direct opposition to true democracy.
Democracy is not served where the so-called “interest groups” determine who the president is. It has become obvious to more people the great effect the Israeli Lobby (AIPAC) has on determining who the American president is, and what foreign policy he adopts even though such policies harm the interest of the American people. This Israeli Lobby should be called by its real name; the Zionist Lobby, for politicians serving the interests of this lobby do not necessarily have to be Israelis or Jews as Vice President candidate Joe Biden put it: “I am a Zionist. You don’t have to be a Jew to be a Zionist”. Zionism is just another name for a colonial movement, which started with “Biblical Moses”, who led the Israelites out of ancient Egypt to occupy Palestine and annihilate its indigenous people. Moses called Palestine the “Promised Land”. The first American settlers (occupiers), pressed by similar colonial system, had also called America the new “Promised Land” and had annihilated its indigenous people.
The road to the White House goes through this Zionist Israeli Lobby. At the podium of this lobby every candidate must pledge unconditional allegiance and service to Israel, a mercenary terrorist state adamant on annihilating the Palestinian Arabs after wiping Palestine off the map, continues to attack its neighboring Arab countries, and violates UN resolutions and international laws. Every candidate must visit Israel and pay homage to Israeli myths at Yad Vashem in order to receive the blessing of American Jewish financiers, who had fattened themselves on slaves trade, drug smuggling, money laundering, and exploitation of the American financial institutions.
Let us remember that this so-called great free and democratic United States was built on land occupation, annihilations of its indigenous populations, slavery of the African nations, and criminal laws legislated by a newer power elite, who wanted to free itself from the old European power elite. This new power elite – the so-called great American forefathers – created laws to divide the land among themselves, and to regulate the exploitive competition between its members, and not to serve the well being of common man. Let us not forget that those heroic forefathers were the rich, the land owners, the largest slave owners/traders, and the monopolizers of all trades. They needed a political system to protect their interests, and decided to have a chief (president) among them – the land owners – to head that political system. For fear of such chief using his political position to expand his wealth on the expense of other members they decided to limit his term to only four years, after which they chose (elect) a successor among them for the next four years. Later on, when people started protesting and moving against the oppressive laws of the president, the power elite decided that it is safer for them to install a nobody, a puppet, as president while they manipulate him from behind the curtains.
The keen observer can easily notice that during late decades the presidential candidates have been progressively less known to the public and with weak political positions due to lack of political experience. The 2008 candidates are clear examples of such observation with Obama and Palin as exceptional examples. Due to their short political careers people don’t really know the candidates’ real positions except what the power elite controlled media tell them. These candidates are propped up, re-imaged, and rhetorically trained to dance on the stage in front of people on the rhythm of offering them few crumbs while giving the fatty meat to the power elite. Carefully analyzing the agendas of candidates on both sides, one discovers the similarities of their goals although molded in different forms.
The presidential salary of about $200,000 is compared nothing to the millions worth of bribes a president is promised to receive after office. Such bribes come in the form of easy job on the board of a large corporation with huge sum of salary, stock options, perks, privileges, and large payments for worthless one-hour speeches to some businessmen. One cannot help but wonder where a president’s loyalty go, to the people or to corporations?
Republican or Democratic parties had been created and financed by power elite to create an illusion of variety, differences, and choice. A third party, like the one Ralph Nader called for, would never be allowed. Candidates are placed on the ballots because they are acceptable servants to the power elite, who control both parties and run the show. Candidates, who aspire to serve the well being of the people, are weed out by excluding them from financial support, from media access, and from presidential debates. Dennis Kucinich was one example of such weed out process.
Without money a presidential candidate could not sustain a fully employed campaign. Without money he could not advance his political agenda through travel and televised advertisement to reach the multitudes. A one minute television advertisement may cost millions of Dollars. Yet Obama had obtained enough money to pay for a 7 by 24 hours televised advertisement by the name of “Obama’s Plan for America”. I am sure he did not get that money through public donations. One wonders what conditions and promises Obama has to pay in return. The same can be said about McCain’s campaign.
people are thrown into two streams, two parties; Republican and Democrats,
built, sustained and controlled by the power elite. These two parties
follow the same agenda; enslaving people and expanding monopoly over
global natural resources. The occupier of the Oval Office is pre-determined,
and the election process is manipulated and geared towards his winning.
The last two elections were very clear examples of such a process.
The Americans are left without any other choice. Due to self-preservation
and ignorance the majority of the people are easily gained to one
party or the other by empty promises and imaginary causes. One politician
described the public as a soccer ball getting kicked from one direction
to the other by political players. In such a game the peoples’
choices are easily misled. The worst form of slavery is the one where
slaves believe they are free.
