Banana Republic USA

From TheB
"From the time they have their first lesson is civics, U.S. citizens have been taught they live in a democracy, whereby anyone can become president of the country,. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that the office of the presidency is reserved for property owning European protestant males who can trace either their lineage or their wife's lineage to one or more European monarchies. In order to document and bring to light these relationships, three genealogical sources will be used as references. The three are Burke's Peerage and Gentry, Ancestors of American Presidents by Gary Boyd Roberts and a Website Genealogy of the Presidents of the USA by Hans A.M. Weeber."  From Motive Means and Opportunity Probable Cause for Indicting George W. Bush, His Sponsors and Aides for the Attack of September 11, 2001 by Mamadou Chinyelu Mustard Seed Press 2004 page 253-54
            As we move full swing into the 2012 political conventions and presidential campaign, it is imperative we wake up and realize the USA is a vile, corrupt and dying banana republic. We have been brainwashed to think only tropical "third world countries" are openly debased and run by a sham political system whereby corporate and financial elites own and control the government, the secret police and Kangaroo Courts and they rule by intimidation, fear and coercion. But if you look at the following definition of banana republic, you will see the United States of America fits that description to a tee. "In practice, a banana republic is a country operated as a commercial enterprise for private profit, effected by the collusion between the State and favored monopolies, whereby the profits derived from private exploitation of public lands is private property, and the debts incurred are public responsibility. Such an imbalanced economy reduces the national currency to devalued paper-money, hence, the country is ineligible for international development-credit, and remains limited by the uneven economic development of town and country.[5] Kleptocracy, government by thieves, features influential government employees exploiting their posts for personal gain (embezzlement, fraud, bribery, etc.), with the resultant government budget deficit repaid by the native working people who earn money, rather than make money. Because of foreign (corporate) manipulation, the kleptocratic government is unaccountable to its nation, the country's private sector–public sector corruption operates the banana republic, thus, the national legislature usually are for sale, and function mostly as ceremonial government"
In the US, corporatism is the order of the day, not democracy or human rights. While this may come as a shock to many of you the fact of the matter is, this is not a recent development. It's not as if the Bu$h family turned the US into a banana republic overnight, this country has always been a plutocratic Kleptocracy where a small band of rich white dudes ripped off the people and controlled the government for their own benefit and aggrandizement. The founding fathers were wealthy white men, many actually owned slaves but all of them benefitted either directly or indirectly from slavery because slavery was the foundation and bedrock of the US economy. A faction of them fought hard against the influence of foreign monopoly trading companies, bankers and corporations, not because it was the patriotic thing to do but because they perceived these entities `as a direct threat to their own wealth and power! Most of us don't know this and so we easily fall victim to the sham/scam that is the US political process.
"Amongst the U.S. citizenry, there have always been two separate and unequal understandings of what the country stands for. For the founding fathers, many who were members of secret societies such as the Freemasons, the government and its constitution were established to protect their property rights and their social standing. To achieve this they had to maintain absolute control over the nation-states' political and economic apparatus. It is on these principles that the patriotism of the ruling class is based. All of this of course was and is, to this very day a secret not to be revealed to the multitude. On the other hand, the patriotism of the multitude, who are not permitted to participate in the ruling of the country, is based upon their belief that one day they will be able to possess the various carrots dangled before them on sticks of various lengths."  From Motive Means and Opportunity Probable Cause for Indicting George W. Bush, His Sponsors and Aides for the Attack of September 11, 2001 by Mamadou Chinyelu Mustard Seed Press 2004 page 256
From time to time when pressed by social agitation the ruling elites have made minimal concessions in response to: abolitionists, white women's suffrage, Afro-Americans, organized labor and the homosexual community for example. But the essential nature of this system which is a closed oligarchy has remained the same although the major players have changed with the inclusion of incoming European ethnic groups such as the Irish, Italians and Ashkenazim Jews.
Make no mistake, the US remains at heart a racist country. For the most part Native Americans, Blacks and people of color in general remain marginalized and out of the power sharing policy making loop. Just because we can now vote and elect local state and federal office holders the real power dynamics have not changed. The Kleptocrats learned their lesson during the so called Reconstruction period when Blacks actually made public policy in the South. Not only did the ousted whites move aggressively to overturn that situation and get back into power with the help of the Northern politicians, they said in effect, never again! And for the most part they have succeeded.
 Has having Black council members, commissioners, mayors and judges drastically altered the living conditions of most blacks? If you are honest you have to say no. Has Barack Obama's election changed the system in any fundamental way? Of course not, in fact most will have to honestly admit the Kleptocrats are getting away with more crimes under Obama than they did under Bu$h (think Jon Corzine) which is a scathing indictment against "the system". At this point, Obama couldn't do anything about it even if he wanted to.
What the Occupy Movement attempted to do was raise awareness that the US is a banana republic, that the wealth gap and power dynamic between the have's and the have not's, a socio-economic/political apartheid, is widening. This is a fact so glaring the sham, veneer and myths about this country being the land of opportunity are crumbling before our eyes, in real time as we speak. This is why the elites are creating an even more invasive police/security/surveillance state and getting it up and running to protect themselves against ordinary citizens as we speak.
 "In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2007, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 34.6% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 50.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 85%, leaving only 15% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers). In terms of financial wealth (total net worth minus the value of one's home), the top 1% of households had an even greater share: 42.7%."  Power In America Wealth, Income and Power G. William Domhoff
Don't pin your hopes on either candidate/party in the coming election the Kleptocrats and New World Order fascists intend to tighten the screws no matter who wins. What we are seeing in Europe is coming here in the not to distant future, banana republic USA.
