The Death of My Country; Barrack Obama and the Black Swan Politic

I have been watching the news intently the last couple of days. I have been searching the news for hope that it wasn’t true. My country has perished. Its founding documents belong under glass like the relics that they are, museum pieces to be admired.

“Black swans are supposed to be inherently unpredictable. They’re the “unknown unknowns” of the investment world—extremely rare events that most consider impossible if not inconceivable. We all worry about tax reform, and then, boom, a few planes hit major American landmarks. (Which happened.) We all worry about Iran getting nuclear weapons, and then, boom, a nuclear power plant goes Chernobyl in Pennsylvania. (Seems improbable, but that’s the point).”[1]

The Black Swan event I am writing about isn’t limited to economics although the world now wonders openly how every miserable event globally bumps up and shores up our currency. Recently since the Wall Street collapse every catastrophe globally spikes our currency and is what is shoring it up.

The Black Swan I am writing about is our complete institutionalizing of the War on Terror to the point we are now handing over countries to groups in league with Al Qaida.

In my previous article “Days of Rage; Its not the Muslims Stupid”[2], written ahead of Rep Peter Kings Hearings on Muslim radicalization I gave a baseline and litmus test to show Al Qaida cooperative elements within the framework of our government.

The baseline proof is simply the nature of the governments installed after “a day of rage.” As predicted in the article every one of them supported by the US has had its leadership co-opted and is tied directly to the Qutbist Al Qaida.

In Egypt the emerging Muslim Brotherhood recently released (# two Al Qaida man) Simon al Zawaheri’s brother from prison.

In Libya the Black Swan is openly evident. Within the framework of the War on Terror, the Presidency has been dragged into a war to support and turn over another country to our supposed enemy Al Qaida.

According to the Guardian an Al Qaida spokesman on Libya “We only came out to defend you against these despots who usurped your rights, plundered your wealth, and prevented you from having the minimum requirements of a dignified life and of freedom and human dignity.”[3]

According to Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense; The Pentagon chief had cautioned early on about getting involved in Libya’s civil war, telling Congress that taking out Libya’s air defenses was tantamount to war.[4]

Secretary Gates also expressed concern about the rebel factions ties to Al Qaida.

Ghaddafi has expressed this a few dozen times now. Although no prize himself, and I am not a supporter of his, was this the only way forward? Recently he released from prison the brother of Osama bin Ladens spokesman who is a rebel leader. Sufian bin Qumu, a rebel leader in Darna, north-east of Benghazi, was once Osama bin Laden’s chauffeur.[5]

The articles and sourcing just go on and on. The ultimate political Black Swan is the setting up of Qutbist nations for the perpetual War on Terror and the profit to be made from it.

The President while on vacation has declared a war he should not have been able to. Will a clear enough majority in Congress censure him and maintain a separation of powers? I don’t think so. While some of the braver elements of his own party are standing up given the gravity of the situation, most will instead seek how it can profit them personally which is par for the course.

Mr. Obama has taken gravely poor advice and the Republicans will no doubt support him until the rug can be pulled out from under him to the hurt of the country and people.

This why I have stated our country has died. In their zeal for a perpetual war on terror neocons now cooperate with our enemy to the point that if the rebellion in Libya succeeds the US will have successfully become the largest supporter of Al Qaida in the world having handed two countries and three peoples into the hands of this vile philosophy[6].

We are no longer a country; we are a gang marauding through the world. The world at best is starting to see us like this.  At worst we are starting to be viewed like a rabid dog blinded by bloodlust. They, the people of the world will only hide indoors until they realize it needs to be put down. It is ultimately about existentialism, existence[7].

Today there is open talk among foreign political analysts about when the US will fire the first shots of WWIII, not if it will.

If we love our country today is the day to speak up and weigh in, and here’s why.

If the president can not declare an offensive war because it is the responsibility of Congress, are the orders given to the military legal orders? What kind of position does this put our service men and women in?

Does this put our country in the position to be seen as a state sponsoring terror, not if but when this comes back to bite us?

Are we willing to institutionalize the evil done by the previous administration and perpetuate it as policy?

Have we forgotten 9/11? We were Americans back then.

If all we have left is the dollar to be made by the bank, the kickback, or the corporation, our time is passed. That is the saddest commentary of all.

[1] Once a black swan event happens, all of that other little stuff you normally care about as an investor—whether it be valuations, interest rates, or profit margins—ceases to matter, or at least matters much less. And as we discovered during the financial crisis, hitting a high-impact, improbable event results in almost all traditional asset classes losing value.
