Debating Obama’s Role in Continuing Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity, at the Behest of His Bankster Overlords

The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by peace activist, Cindy Sheehan

Rayn:

"That face you get when someone says they are 'anti-war' but supports Obama"

“That face you get when
someone says they are
‘anti-war’ but
supports Obama”

Katherine C.: I don’t think it’s Obama…it’s just this country. How did we get out of the Depression?? WWII… It’s the way we do politics and it’s impossible for any president who gets into office to simply say, “ok, we’re shutting down all our army bases all over the world and bringing all our troops back from all over the world just like that”. Not saying I agree with our policies, but it’s also not that easy to undo over 60 years of war behavior.

Rayn: Well, think again, because Obama’s been the ruler of America for almost a decade, now, and has not only escalated all of Bush’s wars, he has continued to expand the U.S. military empire, too!

Rayn: Under Obama, US military bases around the world CONTINUE to increase, without an end in sight…

Rayn: Interesting you mention the Great Depression, because history has revealed that it was actually engineered by collusion between Banksters, Wall Street, and of course, the strong arm of the government…

Rayn: Here’s some of the inconvenient truths set out in the famous book, “Grapes of Wrath”…

“Grapes of Wrath,” Chapter 25, by John Steinback (1939):
http://genius.com/John-steinbeck-grapes-of-wrath-chapter-25-annotated

“The works of the roots of the vines, of the trees, must be destroyed to keep up the price, and this is the saddest, bitterest thing of all. Carloads of oranges dumped on the ground. The people came for miles to take the fruit, but this could not be. How would they buy oranges at twenty cents a dozen if they could drive out and pick them up? And men with hoses squirt kerosene on the oranges, and they are angry at the crime, angry at the people who have come to take the fruit. A million people hungry, needing the fruit—and kerosene sprayed over the golden mountains.

And the smell of rot fills the country.

Burn coffee for fuel in the ships. Burn corn to keep warm, it makes a hot fire. Dump potatoes in the rivers and place guards along the banks to keep the hungry people from fishing them out. Slaughter the pigs and bury them, and let the putrescence drip down into the earth.

There is a crime here that goes beyond denunciation. There is a sorrow here that weeping cannot symbolize. There is a failure here that topples all our success. The fertile earth, the straight tree rows, the sturdy trunks, and the ripe fruit. And children dying of pellagra must die because a profit cannot be taken from an orange. And coroners must fill in the certificate—died of malnutrition—because the food must rot, must be forced to rot.

The people come with nets to fish for potatoes in the river, and the guards hold them back; they come in rattling cars to get the dumped oranges, but the kerosene is sprayed. And they stand still and watch the potatoes float by, listen to the screaming pigs being killed in a ditch and covered with quick-lime, watch the mountains of oranges slop down to a putrefying ooze; and in the eyes of the people there is the failure; and in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing wrath. In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.”

As stated by Wikipedia, “Steinbeck was known to have borrowed from field notes taken during 1938 by Farm Security Administration worker and author Sanora Babb. While Babb collected personal stories about the lives of the displaced migrants for a novel she was developing, her supervisor, Tom Collins, shared her reports with Steinbeck, then working at the San Francisco News.” (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)

America Does Not Have a Free Market Economy

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

America’s Dairy Farmers Dump 43 Million Gallons of Excess Milk:
http://www.wsj.com/articles/americas-dairy-farmers-dump-43-million-gallons-of-excess-milk-1476284353

(Kelsey Gee) Farmers in the U.S. are pouring out tens of millions of gallons of excess milk, amid a massive glut that has slashed prices and has filled warehouses with cheese.

More than 43 million gallons’ worth of milk were dumped in fields, manure lagoons or animal feed, or have been lost on truck routes or discarded at plants in the first eight months of 2016, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. That is enough milk to fill 66 Olympic swimming pools, and the most wasted in at least 16 years of data requested by The Wall Street Journal.

Desperate producers are working to find new uses for the excess, like getting more milk into school lunches, and in revamped tacos and Egg McMuffins. But many can’t even afford to transport raw milk to market at current prices, which have plunged 36% on average since prices hit records in 2014.

My Commentary: No free market to speak of in America… Just a crony capitalist system of government regulations, government-induced waste, government price-fixing, and many going without food, as a result… But, obviously, the eventual solution to all of this corruption is… *drum roll* You guessed it! Infinitely more government, in the form of socialism!

American Government Orders Hundreds of Millions of Pounds of Food to be Destroyed Every Year

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned photo, being shared by an acquaintance from here, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Santucci Farm – Traverse City Cherries: These cherries are beautiful! But, we have to dump 14% of our tart cherry crop on the ground to rot. Why? So we can allow the import of 200 million pounds of cherries from overseas! It just doesn’t seem right. What do you think? Please share this on your Facebook page🍒🍒🍒. Just to let everyone know we are not allowed to donate or in any way use diverted cherries. I have people who would buy them if I could sell them. Also these are tart cherries with a very short shelf life

And, during the “Great Depression,” the State ordered hundreds of millions of pounds of food be destroyed to artificially boost market prices, even while millions of Americans spent years starving.

THIS is the Nature of the State…
