Monster’s Ball: Obama’s Fascist Human Right’s Violator’s & CEO Summit

“CHANGE” : Government of, by and for Big Business

GUESTS

Red = real bad dictator Orange = average dictator

President Peace Prize has just concluded the first ever Monster’s Ball in the White House. This is where he has put together some of the worse human rights violators on the planet along with Big Business leaders from across the globe in an effort to promote the Washington Consensus across the whole of the African continent.

At a Washington, DC gathering of African state leaders and U.S. corporations, President Obama on Tuesday unveiled a multi-billion dollar drive to promote U.S. business investments in Africa.

…Obama’s much-touted “Africa Summit”—which started Monday and ends Wednesday—is co-sponsored by the U.S. Commerce Department and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s foundation, and was attended by chief executives of General Electric, Coca-Cola, Wal-Mart, IBM, and other multinational corporations.

Obama took the opportunity to announce $7 billion in what the White House describes as “new financing to promote U.S. exports to and investments in Africa.” Common Dreams

Hosted by the Commerce Department and Billionaire Bloomberg and formally known as the U.S. Africa Business Forum, heads  of state from the Obama administration were all in attendance including:

  • The Honorable Barack Obama, President of the United States
  • The Honorable Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Vice President of the United States
  • The Honorable John F. Kerry, Secretary of State
  • The Honorable Jacob J. Lew, Secretary of the Treasury
  • The Honorable Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Agriculture
  • The Honorable Anthony Foxx, Secretary of Transportation
  • The Honorable Ernest Moniz, Secretary of Energy
  • The Honorable Denis McDonough, White House Chief of Staff
  • The Honorable Michael Froman, United States Trade Representative
  • The Honorable Susan E. Rice, Assistant to the President and National Security Advisor
  • The Honorable Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to the President
  • The Honorable John Podesta, Counselor to the President
  • The Honorable Jeff Zients, Director of the National Economic Council and Assistant to the President for Economic Policy
  • The Honorable Tony Blinken, Deputy National Security Advisor
  • The Honorable Caroline Atkinson, Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics
  • The Honorable Ben Rhodes , Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting

These neo-liberal administration officials were clearly outnumbered by their corporate counterparts, but they held the key to public dollar which makes all of this possible, public dollars from Transportation, Energy, Agriculture and even Treasury. The seamless blending of the corporation and the state to the direct disadvantage of the people. That’s fascism folks.

In attendance were the likes of Carlyle, Blackstone, Bloomberg LP, Chevron, Citigroup, Coca-Cola, Dow, Ford, GE, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Mastercard, the World Bank and Wal-mart just to name a few.

However, the stars of the three day extravaganza were the various African dictators who were more than ready to be wined and dined by American fascists in exchange for their person pledges to hand over the reigns of power to Washington’s new colonial campaign.

Again, this list, as well as the ones above, is taken straight from the Obama administration’s website detailing this event.

I have added a bit more info than they did though. I include a little detail as to which of these dictators are the worst human rights violators and which are just regular human rights violators according to Maplecroft’s Human Rights Risk index of 2014.

(extreme violators in red, high risk of right’s abuses in orange, medium risk is pink)

You can argue that many of these dictators shown in orange belong in red. I changed Paul Kagame only because I know his real history and what brought him to power. It’s not the most accurate list that exists I’m sure, but it’s the best I could find on short notice.

Everyone got into the neo-liberal act. Even the women-folk:

First Lady Michelle Obama, in partnership with former First Lady Laura Bush and the Bush Institute, hosted a day-long spouses symposium at the Kennedy Center focused on the impact of investments in education, health, and public-private partnerships.

Privatization folks. Privatizing education and healthcare. Lot’s of $$$ there to be sure. What would a neo-liberal gathering of fascists be without that.

And notice CHANGE Obama’s right there “in partnership” with the Bush Institute.

If you ever had any question about all these psyops in Africa over the past few years designed to provide the justification for ObamaGod’s military intervention to make Africa safe for U.S. businesses, lay those to rest.

This is pure fascism, not progress.

Here’s your “CHANGE” Obamaites. Enjoy.

  1. A chance to strut they Limbo Rock moves, the freaks

  2. Back during the Nixon years, my Ph.D. dissertation chairman, Warren Nutter, was Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs. One day in his Pentagon office I asked him how the US government got foreign governments to do what the US wanted. “Money,” he replied.

    “You mean foreign aid?” I asked.

    “No,” he replied, “we just buy the leaders with money.”

    It wasn’t a policy he had implemented. He inherited it and, although the policy rankled with him, he could do nothing about it. Nutter believed in persuasion and that if you could not persuade people, you did not have a policy.

    Nutter did not mean merely third world potentates were bought. He meant the leaders of England, France, Germany, Italy, all the allies everywhere were bought and paid for. http://www.counterpunch.org/2008/08/19/are-you-ready-for-nuclear-war/
    Our entire power structure is based on mafia tactics and principles.Given the collapsing western world economies,how long can a criminal mob last,when and if, it loses the ability to threaten or bribe its victims?Better tell the Fed to keep those printing presses humming.

  3. Monster’s Ball. Didn’t I say it was like a Dean Koontz novel? I want some props too dammit!

  4. Wow. The list of corporate participants also represents a list of stocks to watch for slow, steady and stable growth. For the investor with no conscience, the list is probably less risky than a lot of other diversified investment choices. Interesting comment post about buying leaders. Perhaps the “extremists” like Assad, Castro and the post-Shaw leaders of Iran have a curious lack of interest in money-for-cooperation agreements as part of their “extremism”? As in, it’s “extremely” annoying when someone won’t take your money to do whatever they’re told?

  5. Thank you, Englebert, for your knowledge. So much is above my pay-grade/mental abilities. I guess that’s why I’m here, judging against my one true litmus test.

    • Oh … just to be clear, I don’t have any actual knowledge here. My comment was pure opinion and speculation.
