Pascal Robert: Why Obama Will Walk Away Unscathed by the Current Political Scandals

I have a prediction about how the current scandals facing the Obama administration, from Benghazi, to the Associated Press intrusion, Barack Obamato the IRS harassment of right wing groups, will resolve themselves: President Obama will walk away from all of these scandals completely unscathed. The worst that might possibly happen is that Eric Holder will be forced to resign.

In reality, even with all the friction Holder’s presence causes with Republicans, his exit should be no great loss to anyone on the left not plagued with the vapid diversity con game based on the politics of redemption, which requires “brown and female faces in high places filling mercenary government spaces,” so the babies have people to look up to as roll models. And this is what we think Dr. King died for?

In the face of Holder’s fecklessness on major issues– from investigating and prosecuting Banks to his enabling of the FBI to infiltrate Occupy Wall Street, to his relentless willingness as a tool in the assault on Whistle blowers–his presence won’t be missed.

You may ask, what would prompt me to be so sure that Obama will weather these controversies with minor damage, if any at all? Simple answer: Obama is the most valuable and important tool the guardians of American Empire have to implement the bone crushing agenda that must continue to be leveled against Americans at home and the world abroad for the benefit of the elite.

From increased militarization of the continent through putting U.S. troops in over 35 African countries, to creating a new military doctrine that allows America to attack a country and completely overthrow its regime without any perceived threats to U.S. interests out of the pure charade of humanitarian civilian concern as in Libya, to international war crimes through drone attacks on women and children in countries not in any military theater of engagement with the United States, to sending dog whistles allowing Israel to not only belligerently attack Syria without provocation, risking a World War III scenario via Russia, China, and Iran, but also having his administration publicly give Israel license to attack Iran, the Obama administration’s ability to carry out the most deadening foreign policy agenda since the beginning of Bush’s War on Terror marks a profound milestone in American history.

Being able to do all this while having a Nobel Peace Prize, while simultaneously having black and brown folk fawning to have you speak at Black college graduations like Morehouse College makes Obama’s utility as America’s “more effective evil” presidential choice unquestionable.

And that is only the international front. Let’s not mention Obama’s endless neo-liberal assault on public education through his horrid “race to the top” initiative that has caused a national epidemic of public school closings and teacher firings that some are even deeming as racist.

Compound that with his other neo-liberal private sector takeover via the beyond problematic Obamacare plan that already may deny millions of poor people coverage while increasing Health Insurance costs over 30%. Obama’s neoliberal government giveaways to private corporations and mercenary foreign policy already make him too valuable to the guardians of American empire to have his presidency threatened by these abuses of power that have been exposed

Furthermore, we cannot forget Obama’s most important role as Wall Street’s personal protector, ensuring the banks maintain record profits in the age of austerity after the sequester he demanded chokes the life out of government function and he threatens to cut Social Security and Medicare so that now wryly he can tout an ever worthless decrease in the budget deficit, while America is still mired in recession despite the illusion of recovery.

These are the reasons Obama shall be unscathed by these scandals. He is too effective at assuring the wealth gap metastasizes in growth while poverty is at its highest amount since the early sixties. Meanwhile, the Black community, who so blindly fawn over his soul deadening policies, continue to cheer even as he turns the actions of Black Liberation Heroines like Assata Shakur into grounds to be put on the FBI’s most wanted list. This is the “hope and change” we got in America’s first Black president.

I’ve used this quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in several articles when talking about Obama and the Black community. I find it relevant even now:

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.

    Remember our Esteemed Ancestor, Malcolm X, on his 88th birthday.

    “Those of great heart are the chosen of God, but those who obey base desires become the possession of the enemy.” — Ptahhotep

    “Negro politicians can be as opportunistic as their white counterparts if there is not an informed and determined constituency demanding social reform.”– Martin L King, Jr.

    I totally agree with Bro. Robert.

    Obama’s comrades in the MSM have to feign outrage, however at the end of the day all of them will get back in lock-step with the Obama Administration.
    “I just think we have to be careful before wet get outraged at the president and at the same time understand that we need to have our phone records not being invaded by arbitrary reasons of the Department of Justice.” Michael Dyson

    The POTUS will do what he does best–toss a few people under the bus, and if they go quietly and take one for the team, the media representatives of the sophisticated oligarchs will hush up. They know Obama is the best deal they will ever have. He executes the agenda of the oligarchic psychopathocracy without a whimper of protest.

    Everything (Assata, etc.) is trending towards fascism.

  4. Jack Ass !

  5. Obama’s have become more controversial because of the costs associated with moving the first family to a public vacation spot, unlike the Bushes to their remote ranch in Crawford, Texas. For example, the Hawaii Reporter said the first family’s 2011 Christmas vacation in Hawaii would exceed $1.5 million.

  6. White House sources today claimed that the First Lady has spent $10million of U.S. taxpayers’ money on vacations alone in the past year

  7. President Barack Obama has only been in office for just over nine months, but he’s already hit the golf course as much as President Bush did in over 2 yrs & 10 months.”





    AL AL AL………

  9. jack you did not worry about bush vacation’s did you? phony hypocrite

  10. Joe, dud… put down the kool-aid and kill your t.v.

  11. Pascal dropping truth once again! Keep up the good work.

  12. Tanya, tell your boyfriend to pull back some. He’s pushing your brains out your ears

  13. WOW… A BLAST of TRUTH and REALITY!!! People need to wake up! The entire world, including the united snakes is a battlefield – It’s just been officially acknowledged. Anybody who thinks that because obummer has more pigmentation than the “white” guy and is a democrat, therefore his policies will benefit people of color and the poor, is in a serious state of denial. Thanks Pascal for having the courage and the integrity to go against the grain. Like Jim Hightower says, “The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow.”

  14. Bush went on more vacations than any other president, he was such a loser!!! Jack, where were you then!

  15. None of the previous Presidents had a clue. Bush included who stole 401K’s and caused people to lose their homes. President Obama is the best so far!!!

  16. He will go untouch if not every brother in the country will use it to raid stores and burn buildings down like they did with rodney king. I predict if he loses the Senate in 2014 he will be gone. Every newpaper has finally woke up that this president doesnt have a clue on how to run anything. All he does is spend money thats not his and vacation on american that is not his. All he can say is “I never new it”

    • First, Jack….you spell knew like this. Not new. LOL! Second, these made up ” scandals” will be forgotten soon, since there are no scandals, just GOP Hype. Third, 2014 not only will we keep the Senate, we will be taking back the House. Nancy Pelosi is already primed to take over. Oh, and the President, & First Lady, & their daughters, & Michell’s Mom, are going to take all the vacations they want. They Deserve it.
