Pascal Robert: Barack Obama – Wall Street’s Perfect Manchurian Candidate

by Pascal Robert

In the video above from April 5, 2006 Barack Obama, less than two years in Congress as a pure neophyte was the only U.S. Senator to attend the first meeting of former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin’s–(Rubin is the man who advised all of Clinton’s deregulation that lead to the economic meltdown in 2008)–meeting of the Hamilton Project at the centrist Brookings Institute think tank. Here Obama talks about how the new economic order will not be a bloodless process. Watch Obama heap praise on the elites who engineered the economic crash. Furthermore, listen to what he says about these antiquated “Programs” from the 1930’s that people on the left “wrongly cling to,” meaning Social Security.

All the economic growth Obama praises here in this video from the 90s was caused by the dot com internet bubble that was a sham that collapsed and led to another recession. Notice Obama’s agreement with Bob Rubin on “markets.” This is before the Market totally CRASHED in 2008 causing the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression. The irony is that the 2008 crash was caused by the same Clinton era policies that Obama is cheer leading in this video.

This speech is before Obama declared his candidacy for president in February 2007, and after barely two years of being in the Senate as a freshman. Yet it was so important to have this political novice speak at this meeting? Particularly among the same Wall Street types that would bankroll his 2008 presidential campaign. Hence what we see here is Obama speaking to his true base, those who gave him his marching orders, and continue to do so. The tone of his speech illustrates that he and those in the audience knew that his plan to implement their ideas was not limited to his freshman term in the U.S. Senate. Clearly they knew what larger job Obama was meant to do for them.

And what a job indeed. President Obama protected the Banks from prosecution from the sub-prime meltdown for their allegedly fraudulent activity, and his economic policies have insured record Wall Street profits while the rest of America faces austerity.

So while Black America continues to applaud with glee at their “first black president,” he serves the interests of those that have always ground the poor, and communities of color on the margin to dust. But this is the price we pay for our “politics of redemption.” I hope we feel better when the dream is over and the discovery of the nightmare begins.

Fortunately not all of us were so easily duped:

African American Political Science Professor Adolph Reed, Jr. was the first person to realize what Obama was way back in 1996 shortly after Obama won his first Illinois state senate race:

“In Chicago, for instance, we’ve gotten a foretaste of the new breed of foundation-hatched black communitarian voices; one of them, a smooth Harvard lawyer with impeccable do-good credentials and vacuous-to-repressive neoliberal politics, has won a state senate seat on a base mainly in the liberal foundation and development worlds. His fundamentally bootstrap line was softened by a patina of the rhetoric of authentic community, talk about meeting in kitchens, small-scale solutions to social problems, and the predictable elevation of process over program — the point where identity politics converges with old-fashioned middle-class reform in favoring form over substance. I suspect that his ilk is the wave of the future in U.S. black politics, as in Haiti and wherever else the International Monetary Fund has sway. So far the black activist response hasn’t been up to the challenge. We have to do better.”

The Curse of Community,” Village Voice, January 16, 1996–reprinted in
Class Notes: Posing as Politics and Other Thoughts on the American Scene
(New Press, 2000)

Moreover, this quote is always applicable when discussing Obama:

“The majority of Negro political leaders do not ascend to prominence on the shoulders of mass support. Although genuinely popular leaders are now emerging, most are still selected by white leadership, elevated to position, supplied with resources and inevitably subjected to white control. The mass of Negroes nurtures a healthy suspicion toward this manufactured leader, who spends little time in persuading them that he embodies personal integrity, commitment and ability and offers few programs and less service. Tragically, he is in too many respects not a fighter for a new life but a figurehead of the old one. ” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Who would have thought it? A Black man as Wall Street’s perfect Manchurian Candidate? Truly a brilliant masterstroke. Well played. Indeed, well played.

  14. Provocative headline and quite a rhetorical finish. Still, little of what Mr. Robert offers in the way of evident, support his arguments. Obama’s speech before a small audience at Brookings, for example, is not one that supports Wall Street / Financial services industry. Brookings is a public policy think tank. It regularly hosts workshops on divert number of matters. Interested members of the public are regularly part of that audience. The same may be said of his guests.

    Is Obama one who gets cash from Wall Street? Sure, but not in the amount that one might think. During the last election, for example, Romney got the lion share of Wall Street support and endorsements. What is not disputed is that Obama — and the Congress — generally concede to Wall Street demands.

    Finally, Lets stop blaming Obama, and do something that helps the poor, the voiceless, the average African-American. Obama is someone who easily concedes the position of being reasonable when pushed. To date, those who have pushed have been the Zionist Lobby, narrow Financial Interests, and energy concerns. Their strategies have worked. What if we – those who are really concerned about the welfare of the voiceless and defenseless — took up the fight and started pushing? Perhaps, just perhaps, we will be able to change this country for the better.

  15. I was skeptical of Obama from the beginning when I first heard him and michelle on Oprah. They seemed to be condescending and slightly racist in tone. Then afterward i saw what the a mess the republican party made of everything, i voted for Obama, just for a change of scenery. I thought that he would be good for the country, and i still thought so when he ran for re-election. While I still dont want the republicans in charge, its getting harder and harder to stomach the same old politics no matter who is in the white house. Obama has stabbed the people who got him elected and re-elected in the back. I realize now what a horrible mistake we made. I am sorry to say that I see no end to the line of criminals waiting to turn this country into a fascist state.

    It’s sad that this article, with all of its information, has received so little comments. Very sad.
    But just let there be an article about a republican or some racist b@st@rd saying something negative about “my Obamaaaaaaaaaa!”. That article will receive over 100 comments. Nearly 200.

    Or, let there be an article about Beyonce’s toe nails being painted with gold from Macy’s department store or some other irrelevant cr@p. 300 comments.

    This sh!t is crazy. I guess this this article is too much for people to think about. Too much to understand and see what these sociopathic b@st@rds are actually doing instead of what they say they are doing.

    Thanks Pascal. I’m a fan. I seek the truth. I seek the facts. Thanks for providing some of it to me. It’s just more comfirmation for what I’ve already been researching.

  18. Pascal, Thanks for being at the forefront of the war of informational context.

    I have long mis-trusted the motives of and those financing those candidates which are there to execute the agenda by which we are all being reverted into slavery.

    The political process, in my humble opinion has been non-representative at least at the state and national levels and has only served to advance agendas which empower corporate entities adherent to the de-population and enslavement process, on-going even before the series of political assassinations designed to retain control and forward progress of that said agenda.

    The problem, as I see it is that we as a society are mired in the illusory in as far as our roles in the “political process.” Great information has come out since long ago to enlight the public but most of it has been banalized as being to weird to be true.

    At this point, it is imperative to not only put out such information, but also to revisit that information, taken as gospel in the past, which allowed the facilitation of these agendas against mankind…

    The revisitation and appropriate correction of those aspects of our “history” are vital in re-aligning the parameters of our moral compasses and historical self-vision in order to better understand the process of undoing what has been done. This process will not be an undertaking for the feeble and the idea that all will participate regardless as to the costs is one which has repeatedly been disproven. As the hour is late, these approaches must be taken in a parallel manner withfeigned adherence to the status-quo while emplacing ideologically compatible strategies from the basest level to the most un-corrupted elements of the higher ones.


  19. Thanks for posting this video and article, Pascal. Some of us woke up from the Obama delusion in 2010 and thereafter. Unfortunately, the prospect of a Romney presidency was simply too frightening so we held our noses and pulled the lever again for Obama in 2012 hoping that maybe, just maybe things would improve in his second term.

    I fear that by failing to hold Obama accountable for his failure to address our dreadfully high unemployment levels and the wealth-loss precipitated by the 2008 Great Recession, we’ve made ourselves more vulnerable to economic and political neglect going forward regardless of who wins the election in 2016.

  20. I agree a whole lot. A lot of blacks are brainwash and they are so denial, drinking Obama’s poisonous kool aid. Wake up people, Obama has sold out. Both parties are evil.

  21. The Shine Has Worn Off

    Thanks Pascal Roberts. I’ve been aware of everything you’ve stated and the videos you’ve linked. I’ve tried to tell family, friends, and other people about this phony since I became aware in the first months of 2010. Yeah. I drank the Obama-aid. But I soon went into to rehab after following his policies and appointments to various positions.

    Many black people are still in denial. They think this guy is for us and the rest of the 99%. They won’t accept this kind of information. MSNBC propaganda is all they need while the captains of industry are closing in on us with abject poverty and lawlessness.

    Welcome to The New World Order. Brought to you by the deception that is Obama the Progressive. Or should I say Obama the Opressive.

    Watch out North Korea. They’re beating the drums of war for you next. CNN and other corporate state run media agencies are feeding us propaganda about you. Your people are in danger just as peoples of the third world are in danger. Just the same, we are in danger as well.



  22. Two parties same agenda

  23. I need to read this entire article again. For a minute I thought I had stumbled upon a Black forum that had a diversity of opinion expressed by authors and readers as well.
    surely I am dreaming.

    • @Steve Lemon

      The information is to comprehensive and substantial to have a diversity of opinions. Obama is a manchurian evident by the propensity of data given in this article and many other sources as well.

  24. my very wise 9 year old daughter said, "if people voted for him just cuz he's black, isn't that racism?"… well said!

    • Tell your kid it's a myth that people voted for him just because because one it's ridiculous and not remotely quantifiable and two when Shirley Chisholm, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Herman Cain ran they didn't win. They're black. Sometimes THINKING requires common sense and not just bias.

    • It's not a myth. Do you know why…ask half the people who voted for him why they voted for him and they will tell you the truth. Most don't know the issues he even ran on. Just that they were voting for the brother. What they will find is that he is pulling the perfect coup. He will destroy this country from the inside. Here is a small taste of what your in for. Last year because of the tremendous debt that this man just slapped us with, China, Russia, Japan, Opec and many other countries are mounting an effort to stop the dollar as the world reserve currency. If you don't know what that means here ya go…We are able to run debts like the likes of Obama's because we are the reserve currency of the world. We are the only country that can print money without it having a major effect on our currency which keeps inflation down. Being the world reserve currency means that other countries have to transfer their currency into ours before they buy from another country. The largest commodity, oil, is only sold in dollars around the world. Because we keep printing money (quantitative easing) other countries have started to lose faith in the dollar. If we get replaced as the reserve currency inflation will run rampant in this country. We will have to actually start paying the interest in real dollars not bullshit money that we keep printing. In 2017 when the powers that be reconvene to vote that is when it will begin, and Mr. Obama knows this but he will do nothing to protect you and me by reducing the debt….noooooooo he is just running more and more deficits under the guise that he had to do this to fix the economy. Japan did this is the 80's, Germany in the 40's, most of the EU now, they all collapsed or are near collapsing. We will see it in the next 4 years. You can thank yourselves and the Democratic leadership for lying to you. If you don't believe me look it up. Check Reuters and the international newspapers. Search for US world reserve currency demise and READ!!!!! Stop supporting this idiot and the poverty pimps of the Democratic Party.

  25. I never supported his candidacy nor the comparison to MLK's dream, which the above quote confirms the dream was not about Barack Obama.
