America’s Phony Election, the Polling Fiasco

Charred American Corpse, Iraq, Full Credit to Blackwater Incompetence

It’s About the War Stupid!


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


Darkest Ohio – (VT) President Obama was elected to end the Bush wars, disband Homeland Security, find our friendly TSA workers something more useful to do and to sell the billions of dollars of unused and worthless airport scanners back to Michael Chertoff and Israel.

Jailing a few war criminals, capping gasoline prices and ending the Federal Reserve fiasco might have been nice.

On the whole, the only things keeping Obama from being a miserable failure are people like Mitt Romney, the entire Bush family and the combination of organized crime, foreign spies and drug runners that were running America under Bush and, to a great extent, still are.

Now we are being told that Mitt Romney is a real contender in the election.  Romney runs over 1000 secret bank accounts in Switzerland and an uncounted number in the Caymans.  In fact, other than inheriting vast wealth and never having had to do a day of real work, Romney may well be scarier than any James Bond bad guy.

It isn’t his religion, though Mormonism is generally seen as political, extremist and even dangerous by a majority of Americans.

Today, we got the following poll results on the war in Afghanistan:

WASHINGTON — Support for the war in Afghanistan has hit a new low and is on par with support for the Vietnam War in the early 1970s, a bad sign for President Barack Obama as he argues that to end the war responsibly the United States must remain in Afghanistan another two years.

Only 27 percent of Americans say they back the war effort, and 66 percent oppose the war, according to an AP-GfK poll released Wednesday.

A November 1971 Harris poll showed a record-high 65 percent of Americans said that continued fighting in Vietnam was “morally wrong.” By that time the United States was already drastically cutting the size of its fighting force in Vietnam on the road to a full withdrawal in 1973.

The 11-year Afghan war has not been highly popular among Americans for many years, but support has dropped off steeply. A year ago, 37 percent favored the war, and in the spring of 2010, support was at 46 percent.

The AP poll does not spell out why people have changed their minds. But the drop-off in support parallels rising casualties, increased attacks on Americans by the Afghan soldiers they are mentoring and inconclusive battlefield gains that have increased security in many areas of the country but have failed to break the Taliban-led insurgency.

About half of those who oppose the war said the continued presence of American troops in Afghanistan is doing more harm than good.

Why do I tie Romney and the GOP to the 27% figure?


The answer is simple.  We are told that the potential election is nearly a tie but most Americans have never met anyone who would vote for Romney, no matter how much they might hate Barak Obama.  Typically Americans say they would rather eat their own foot than vote for another “rich frat-boy” who has a life, not only uniquely empty of personal accomplishment but, hiding in the background, Romney faces indictment for involvement with Bernie Madoff in an $8.5 billion dollar ponzi scheme.

More and more it looks like Romney was “nominated,” though the real Republican choice, Ron Paul, has far from given up, because Romney is likely to end up in prison long before he could take office.

Mitt Romney, his son Tagg, and Romney’s chief fundraiser, Spencer Zwick, have extensive financial and political ties to three men who allegedly participated in an $8.5 billion Ponzi scheme. A few months after the Ponzi scheme collapsed, a firm financed by Mitt Romney and run by his son and chief fundraiser partnered with the three men and created a new “wealth management business” as a subsidiary.

 In an exclusive interview with ThinkProgress, Tagg Romney confirmed their business relationship, but falsely claimed that the men were cleared of any wrongdoing associated with the Ponzi scheme. Tagg Romney told ThinkProgress that his three partners collected about $15,000 from their involvement in the Ponzi scheme. Court documents obtained by ThinkProgress show that the legal proceedings are ongoing and the men made over $1.6 million selling fraudulent CDs to investors.

 The Ponzi Scheme

 In 2009, prosecutors announced charges against the Stanford Financial Group, which managed a portfolio of $8.5 billion, for running a “massive, ongoing fraud” against its investors. The Ponzi scheme bust was one of the largest in recent history, second only to Bernie Madoff, who perpetrated a fraud estimated to be around $17 billion. The Stanford Ponzi scheme wiped out the savings of thousands, including many American retirees across the country. In Texas, 1290 people lost their retirement savings because of the Stanford Ponzi scheme; in Louisiana, several hundred reportedly suffered the same fate.

Here is the long and short of it:

  • The 27% that support the war is the entire Republican Party, all the support Romney has.  This isn’t our first “who hates the candidate most” election by far.  Romney is a sure winner here as “most hated candidate” since Newt Gingrich has withdrawn.
  • The “Ponzi Scheme” Romney and his son can look forward to shows signs of Bush family “behind the scenes” dealings.  Bush 41 still wants another unqualified loser of a son to try to finish America off.  Pray for landings of billions of giant unkillable space spiders before such a thing. 
  • All those foreign bank accounts have one purpose only, money laundering.  As Americans can’t legally have money in such accounts, Romney is already in “hot water.”  Worse yet, whoever owns those thousands of accounts with $82 billion dollars of unclaimed and untaxed “income” in them, we might assume some of it might be of unsavoury origin


Plan?  Plan?  As far as any of us can tell, he plans to starve as many Americans to death as possible, deny medical care, create a slave state until we have total rebellion that will lead to the beheading of every American with over a thousand dollars in the bank.

America is that close to revolution if nobody notices.  Why do you think we have passed so many unconstitutional laws, even under “liberal” Obama?

Why in the name of Joseph Smith and his magic gold tablets, why in the name of cowboy Jesus would anyone take another mindless “empty hat” sociopath seriously when the guy we have, brilliant and ruthless, endlessly more popular than congress or the Supreme Court (not saying much there)

Thus, what is the importance of the magic number, “27?”

This is the percentage of Republicans in the United States.  Why do elections turn out differently, one might ask.

During the Cold War, it was the job of the US through a number of agencies, both overt and covert, to assure that popular governments that supported individual rights would consistently lose elections despite massive support.

These old habits have long since come home to roost, as the saying goes.  If you can steal 5 million votes, you can steal 10 million, 20 million, as long as you control the news organizations.

Britain knows about this, the British people, raped by a criminal conspiracy that has infected their government for decades may soon be brushed away.  The exact same criminal conspiracy is active in the US.

There are no free elections in “the West.”

Everything is “rigged.”  This is the nature of the feudal system we try to pass off as “capitalism.”

It is, in reality, crime, not so much organized as compartmentalized.  No one even knows who the top criminals are.

We live in an episode of “The Shadow” or “Green Lantern.”

Today, Mitt Romney is a minor shill for “Mr. Big,” the crime boss who is pulling the strings.

The fear is that Obama may be more of the same.  Our hope is that he is not.  I can’t prove it.

And so it goes….

  1. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts has stated publicly that if you love your country, you have but one choice, Ron Paul. He is quick to state that he does not believe the powers behind the office will allow the Ron Paul agenda to move forward, and that if it does, these same powers will seek to isolate and/or destroy him. However, he states, it is clear that politically Ron Paul is our only chance.
    I think Dr. Roberts is correct.
    President Obama has given America the “gift” of a huge knife in the back. The Rom is another stooge for the same powers that want you literally in chains.
    If Ron Paul is blocked from the nomination, it will be time to jettison the entire corrupt political process. It may be time for Americans to simply hold their own elections independent of the powers, and install their own candidates without the disgusting filth of the control apparatus polluting it all.
    Perhaps it is correct to say that America is on the brink of revolution. The powers behind the office will not realize their folly until they are dangling from light poles all across this land. A Ron Paul presidency will buy time not only for Americans, but also for those powers. It really is in everyone’s best interest.
    However, expecting the powers behind the office to moderate their behavior is most likely a stupid hope. I do wonder, will they think of their lost opportunity while they are hunted and running for their worthless lives?

    Yeah, yeah..Obama’s probably a well-groomed MK-ultra graduate….Please tell us who we should vote FOR…that would be more usual the Constitution Party is running a good candidate…Former Rep. Virgil Goode….Not much charisma or name recognition…and no chance..but at least he’s a better choice.

  3. An excellent and well written piece by Gordon once again. My only criticism is that the chances of Obama getting into office as President of the United States of America in our current world – without him making promises to the international banking set beforehand – is obviously less than zero. You can take that to the bank.

    If Obama had either a) genuinely risen to popularity from nowhere; or b) threatened to upset the Bilderberg Group apple cart in any way; or c) Not made any promises of allegiance to the judaic monsters – then the media would have squashed him like a bug at his political birth.

    Gordon – with all due respect – you know this, I know this – and so does every person making up the great ‘awakening’ across the world. The awakening that now genuinely threatens the Monster’s ‘bright new coming age.’

    Our international enemies ONLY play with loaded dice. They could never countenance a scenario where they could not predict the outcome – or where they would not be able to control and directly manipulate events. Democracy does not exist in the west and has not done so for decades. Your comments about Britain are spot on.

  4. Gordon.

    I’m most interested in what charges can be brought against Romney and co-conspirators for the elegant “Ponzi” work they have done and the hidden accounts that hold the secrets about dividing up the cash.

    This would certainly shake America’s love affair with the supposed capitalists, that have been pointing their fingers at the rest of us saying we’re socialists.

  5. You hope??! You can’t prove it??!
    I’m calling bullshit. Why do you persist in carrying ‘Obama’s’ water?
    Let’s see, every campaign promise he made was a lie. Every comment he makes about 9/11 and bin Laden is a lie. He presides over two illegal and criminal wars that even my dog knows were started based on obvious lies. He continues to allow Homeland Security, the TSA, etc to exist even though they were founded on lies and cons. He allows the fabricated and nonexistent war on terror to continue, and trillions to be stolen because of it.
    Jesus, the list goes on and on and on and on.
    And on and on and on.
    But you hope he’s not a shill and can’t prove anything.

    • How can somebody know about a cricket fart in Kabul but be blind to ‘Obama’?

      • I have come to be convinced that a certain segment of our population has had half their DNA (Deoxyribo Nucleic Acid) somehow replaced with ‘Democrat Nucleic Acid’. It is so intertwined with their genetic makeup that they are totally convinced that no matter what, the Democrats ALWAYS hold the moral high ground and that anything or anyone that calls into question their real agenda is the mortal enemy.

        They claim to be the open-minded party of tolerance but nothing could be further from the truth. Obama = Romney = Bush = Clinton. It is theater of the absurd. We’re freakin doomed.

    • Yes, that worm keeps going ’round and ’round in my ear, too.

    • Despite outward manifestations and explanations, there’s a part of Gordie we just don’t know about. Do we see live interviews with him or just phone calls to the media hosts? This shattering stuff that originates from him is often amazing, if true and proven, but the clandestine support for Obama is nettling to many of us who have this queasy feeling. Has Gordie been vetted? Is he a well placed apparatchik? Or, in the best tradition, is he just a high and wide flier that merely shoots from the hip? I have no idea about these questions I’ve raised, I just raised them, not sure where they came from, and not sure if I am who I said I was. I could be almost anybody, Mom’s gone now and only she knew.
      Obama, to me, is just a bit different, on net, from the preceding freakshows like Bush old and young, Clinton, Reagan. Let’s face it, we’ve been getting our periodic rapes from the Prezzies pretty good for the last 3 decades. Constant false flags, more and more corruption, non-responsive Congress that won’t email their constituents who write in to them. Is this crazy stuff the preliminary to our total demise? Obama, as I see it, is a cartoon character. The bloated inauguration, the consummate bloviating, the hostile wife that hates Whitey, the constant self centeredness, nagging narcissim, a character that most can see is not his own boss. Hidden schooling, no friend from days past, nobody at Columbia to remember him, monies spent to obfuscate virtually everything about his past, the chronic evasiveness that makes one retch, but worst of all, the fact that shallow Americans buy this malarkey hook, line, and sinker, a tribute to our wonderful courses in analytic thinking taught at our fine schools and colleges. To have Gordie cut this joker any slack whatsoever simply befuddles me no end. For now, no, I’ll reserve judgment. Just far too many loose ends, the Gordian knot is still too nebulous for any judgmental congruence.

  6. If the cure wasn’t just so damn extreme. Would we have our own “Killing Fields” where we lose the intelligence that has brought us to where we are? Or do we just push the solution ahead a few years until someone has the balls and the power to put it all right.

    I don’t know myself, but the veterans of the US could sure do a better job than those politicians up there. But I’m just an old hippy, so what do I know!

  7. The fear is that Obama may be more of the same. Our hope is that he is not. I can’t prove it.
    Still buying into the hope and change? The solutions to the problems in this world will not be solved by politics.

  8. One must not move the mountain.

    The mountain must move to him.

    It is possible. Reverse the curse.

    Gordon what’s the latest on Victor Bout? As I recall, the semi-official surplus arms dealer for the Russian govt. got into trouble for a little too much truth-telling…An example of what we’re up against; a friend at church told me that a friend of his, an engineer, sd that it was “feasible for those bldgs ( WTC ) to come down the way they did…” People really do enslave themselves…There’s dozens of other anomalies from that day ( Fetzer’s documented them well ) that demolish the official version…but the “engineer” hasn’t acquainted himself with all those pesky details because they would, no doubt, make him feel uncomfortable and keep him from enjoying American Idol tonight..

  10. Aaaah, the EPIPHANY is finally “at hand”. Damned if you do , damned if you don’t, and damned no matter how you vote…or don’t vote. Despite the relentless efforts of the “professional doubt dealers”, the TIME for bullets over ballots has arrived.

    Or, if that analogy causes “mental distress”, then put forth another one less “revolutionary” that still places the illusion of “choice by ballot” into proper perspective. NON-EXISTENT.

  11. “Cant prove it” but what does letting the 9/11 criminals off the hook indicate about Obama being more of the same? What does keeping Israels extortion rate the same(in fact I believe Obama increased it) instead of eliminating it indicate? What does keeping the Patriot Act in place and signing NDAA indicate?

    I understand that it appears that Netanyahu and the other likudniks hate Obama. This is a good sign. I would like to think that behind the scenes hes a legitimate President trying to do whats right but the above examples wont allow me to think that let alone vote for him. Not as bad as Bush is not good enough. Romney is an empty suit, but a dangerous one so a vote for him is a vote for more of the same for sure.

    “Pray for landings of billions of giant unkillable space spiders before such a thing.”. Hilarious and very true. Expect Jeb Bush versus Hillary Clinton in 2016. Its a disaster no matter who “wins”.

  12. One wonders if the only reason Bernie Madoff (any relation to Boris Badanuf?) is in jail is that he ripped off rich stiffs. Greenspan, Bernanki, Geithner, and Hank the bank Paulsen are still running the hole in the Wall Street gang that robbed working stiffs of their futures. Ho hum.

    Hang em high,

  13. George Clooney?!!! Great actor, but why in the hell is he a member of the Council On Foreign Relations? Something ain’t right about that. He’s also hosting the single largest one night fund raiser ever held at his home for Obama on May 11th.

  14. Charlotte NC Bill

    No, the “engineer” Mike quoted doesn’t go there….it just amazes me how ignorant and gullible some people are, especially the ones that should know better…Actually I go to a SSPX “tridentine” latin mass parish…Most people there know what’s going on..( that’s why they’re there ) .the american exceptionalist/no salvation outside the Republican party/Fox News junky types are sparse..There are always some though-and I avoid them..

  15. Charlotte NC Bill

    Won’t a rightist third party candidate mostly take votes away fm Romney? The right-of-center folks we’re referring to won’t vote for Obama or Romney…but they’re the votes Romney can’t afford to lose-but he’s going to lose them..Dr. Roberts talks a lot about the 9-11 fraud, the Fed…He was the Asst Sec of Treas…he’s the kind of person w/”gravitas” the truth movemnt needs…Don’t worry TJ-Romney’s future is in jail or on Wall St-not the WH.
