In a recent Op Ed written by Eric Draitser, and titled, Meet the new Bush, same as the old Bush, what becomes very clear is that the American people are not voting for a new president, rather they will be deciding which CEO elected by the Carlyle Group will be in charge of the Washington D.C. Corporation. Here are a few extracts:
“Bush seems to be openly flaunting his desire to be yet another corporate Yes-Man-in-Chief, one who will continue the domestic and foreign policies of his brother and father before him.”
“As The Intercept reported, Bush’s Super PAC, known as Right to Rise, has received significant contributions from a number of key donors including lobbyists for Saudi Arabia, as well as those for Wal-Mart, ExxonMobil and other major corporations. In addition, a major contributor has been Glenn Youngkin, managing director of the Carlyle Group, the firm which owns Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the world’s top defense contractors.”
“The Carlyle Group, a secretive investment group comprised of many powerful political and financial elites, has a longstanding relationship with the Bush family. As The Economist noted in 2003: “The Carlyle Group [is] a private equity firm that manages billions of dollars, including, at the time, some Bin Laden family wealth. It also employs Messrs [former President George H.W.] Bush and [former Bush administration Secretary of State James] Baker.”
Briefly in passing, Draitser says of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton:
“For it should come as no surprise that Hillary Clinton is raising serious money from many of these same interests, with only slight differences of names and figures. “
Only last year Mother Jones posed the question (emphasis mine) :
Is Hillary “being courted by and/or providing access to the well-heeled companies and industry groups—including Goldman Sachs, the Carlyle Group, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, the National Association of Realtors, and the US Green Building Council, among many others—that have paid her to speak? “This is a great way for a company to get access to her, to hear what she’s thinking, to be remembered if and when she does run for office, and to help her grow that nice little nest egg that she and her husband have been intent on building,” says Meredith McGehee, policy director at the Campaign Legal Center.”
If it is not clear to every voter by now that their political candidates and presidents are not the representatives of the people, by the people and for the people, but rather are the representatives of “secretive investment groups,” one major player being the Carlyle Group, then they are still reading fairy stories from the 20th Century. Republican or Democrat, they own them both. No doubt both will promote the TPP. And in every football stadium the show will go on…
In the 21st Century, political parties and elected presidents work for THE CORPORATION. A giant corporate octopus squid that has no interest in running governments or even nations, but has spread it’s tentacles worldwide in order to achieve a one world government under corporate control, where like the EU parliament, the elected officials are not put there by the voters, but by the same “secretive investment groups” that fund both Bush and Clinton. Their objective is a corporate, feudal fascist system with only two tiers of society. “Them,” the 1 %, and “US,” the 99%.
And lastly, keep in mind that the Carlyle Group owns Booz Allen Hamilton, that Edward Snowden worked for Booz Allen Hamilton, and that Dov Zakheim was the Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton until 2010. According to Jerry Mazza:
“Grandpa Zakheim was born in 1870, Julius Zakheim (Zhabinka), in the Ukraine, a Russian rabbi who married a relative of Karl Marx. He was a Menshevik/Bolshevik and played a leading role in the 1905 turmoil that paved the way for the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. The Bolshevik master plan called for the state of Israel, which was chosen for its proximity to the world’s oil and an area of religious significance.”
And voila! We now have the crisis in Ukraine and are on the verge of an all out, full scale, WW3 against Russia! My goodness but it is a small world!
So who are you voting for in 2016? The Carlyle Group? Or the Carlyle Group?
