When reading numerous headlines about all parties involved above keep this background factor in mind. Everything is a bargaining chip on a moving chessboard of who gets what, where and how much in the newly revived, but very ancient, OLD counterrevolutionary world of private empires:
Back in the New World of Citigroup/Obooma United Suckers and Assholes Alice in Wonderland NAZI DICTATORSHIP, Voodoo Economics is alive, well and still the name of the game as both the domestic and world economy spin apart around them unleashed by the abundant PERPETUAL contradictions concomitant with the above reactionary program. Scandals are too numerous to itemize.
Capitalism is in PERPETUAL, ever deepening, insoluable crisis BOTH at home and abroad. The two are inextricably intertwined, since overseas expansion is CRITICAL to increased profitability. They have, so to speak, bet everybody's house, yours, theirs, the nations and everyone else, on this reactionary, counterrevolutionary, global capitalist penetration and expansionist project, above.
To paraphrase a popular song, "you can't have one without the other...Love and marriage...go together like a horse and carriage..."
What is coming down the domestic homefront pike, due to Nazi Citigroup/Obooma's debt, inflation, pork stimulus largesse, will setup a forthcoming attack on what is called, here, "entitlement" programs, i.e., Social (in)Security and Medicare, the few, meagre, antediluvian vestiges of Roosevelt's national New Deal old age insurance, retirement and pension program remaining.
What the United Suckers and Assholes will get from a Trillion dollar spending package is nothing, fleeting garbage and pork compared to what they will give up in the name of deficit, debt, inflation and balanced budgets.
On one hand what Nazi Citigroup Lord Jesus Obooma giveth, they take back many millions times over with the other hand.
A magician's sleight of hand trick.
Meanwhile, the story continues unabated on the other, flip side of the globe.
For example, the Trade Bank of Iraq held a conference for private investment. Below is an EXCERPT. Link following. MY emphasis in BOLD:
And, here's Dana Gas with Hamid Jafar at a conference in Egypt:
And, so it goes...
