Obama’s Great, Revisionist Lie

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

To paraphrase an old expression, “there are lies, damned lies, and Obama lies.” In 2008; Barack Obama promised Americans (and the world) “change”, meaning a change of direction from the eight year reign-of-error of George Bush Jr. What Americans and the world got was more of the same, in every way.

Obama promised to “get tough on Wall Street.” Instead, his corrupt regime has proclaimed that it will never prosecute a Big Bank, ever again. Obama promised to repeal “the Bush tax-cuts”, which were at the time the largest single windfall for the wealthy in history. Instead, he has entrenched this never-tax-the-Rich philosophy.

The net effect of eight more years of allowing the Big Bank crime syndicate to run wild, and eight more years of allowing the very-rich a taxation “free ride”? Globally, the Top-1% now possess more wealth than everyone else on the planet, combined. In the U.S., the Top 0.1%, by themselves, hoard as much wealth as the bottom-90% of the population.

On this basis alone, Barack the Betrayer will go down in history as one of humanity’s most-odious liars, and one of the most-loyal servants of the oligarchs who pull his strings. However, as this corrupt puppet prepares to leave office with his “mission accomplished”, he’s still not finished spewing lies – with a smile on his face.

Obama has saved the Mother of All Lies for his last, few months of office. It is Revisionist mythology of the most perverse and despicable nature. According to Obama, both “America” and the world are better places today (thanks to himself): better than 8 years ago, better than 30 years ago, better than 50 years ago.

When you hear someone longing for the good old days, take it with a grain of salt, take it with a grain of salt,” Obama said in his address.

In fact,” he said, “by almost every measure, America is better and the world is better than it was 50 years ago or 30 years ago or even eight years ago.”


Fifty years ago (with our gold standard still intact), Western societies had reached an all-time zenith in their prosperity. A single wage-earner could comfortably provide a Middle Class existence for their family, in societies with virtually full employment.

Today, our standard of living has plummeted by more than half. Unemployment (real unemployment) is at least as bad as during the Great Depression. Meanwhile, a rapidly growing percentage of our population suffers from a plight, and blight, which didn’t even exist 50 years ago: “homelessness”.

True, much of the Rest of the World may not look back at the 1960’s as “the good, old days”, but that was largely because many/most of these nations had been victimized by decades (or even centuries) of Western economic hegemony. That hegemony has only continued to intensify, but now in a more overtly military, and less overtly economic form.

While there have been some economic gains for other nations and regions, the Rest of the World is being militarily victimized by the West (and especially the U.S.) to a greater degree than at any time in the last half century. With first its phony/corrupt “War on Drugs”, and it’s even phonier/more-corrupt “War on Terror”; the U.S. now essentially ignores the sovereignty and territorial integrity of nearly every nation on the planet. It has repudiated numerous international treaties, including (most infamously) its refusal to even adhere to the minimal standards of humanity known as the Geneva Conventions.

When Obama claims the world to be “better” than 8/30/50 years ago, this implies some of the things which Obama doesn’t like. He obviously doesn’t like prosperity. He obviously doesn’t like peace. But that’s just a starting point.

He clearly doesn’t like the Planet Earth, itself. Fifty years ago; the planet was relatively pristine, and with the rate of eco-carnage increasing, this environmental rape of our planet has intensified over the past 8 and 30 years, respectively. Nor does Obama like the other life-forms on this planet either (except for his ultra-wealthy Masters).
