Symbiosis between money and politics undermines democracy

Someone has once stated “It is easier for a man to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven”. But what if the Rich man controls the banks, the media the legislators, the judiciary and centres of decision making? The worst case scanario is manifested by Italian Prime Minister (PM) Silvio Berlusconi. He bribed late PM Benito Craxi, to gain control of state owned monopolies including four TV channels. After becoming Italian PM for the second time, Berlusconi succeeded in passing laws delaying any investigation accusing him of illegal activities while he remains occupying the post of PM.

In America, it is a must for big corporations and financial institutions, including crooks like Bernie Madoff and Rotstein, to contribute to the election funds of US politicians and legislators. During the thirties, the Italian Mafias did put law enforcement officers and Judges on their payroll. At one time, thirty US senators owed their seats to the mafia. But when too many complaints filed against certain illegal practices by names likes Al-Capone, Colombo, Luciano and Genovese the Americans started to cry wolf until the mafia activities became ‘legal’.

In the US today, a new group of untouchables with names like Goldberg, Goldstein, Goldsmith, Silverstein, Spielberg, Bloomberg and Greenberg…etc are in control of the financial institutions, the media and Washington D.C Politics. A good example is Mike Bloomberg. He made $9billion working for Goldman Sachs, established his own media corporation and went to become the mayor of New York in the hope of becoming the next US President. Because of the heavy influence of the Jewish money in US politics, no-one in his right mind can criticise Israel or have an honest and open dialogue about the pro-Israeli US foreign policy.

The same American Rich men have started to invest heavily on politics in West and East Europe. In recognition for the Jewish contribution, British PM Margaret Thatcher appointed five Jewish Cabinet Ministers in her first cabinet: Nigel Lawson, Keith Joseph, Leon Brittan, Lord Young, and George Younger. All have worked to rip off the United Kingdom by privatising the state monopolies to the benefit of their friend and allies. As an example, Lord Young privatised the communication firms, left the government and got himself a $5 million job with Cable and wireless.

The same US Rich men worked to rip off the Russian state monopolies that ended up in the hands of mostly Jewish Oligarchs.

In trying to clarify the role of US money in British politics, Tony Blair promised during the election campaign to open up the books. But later on, he changed his mind after becoming the PM and after his party treasurer, Jewish Lord Levi, showed him the extent of US money involvement in his party donations.

It was not a mere coincidence that Tony Blair has joined G.W. Bush in marching on Baghdad to Israeli drums.

The bad Rich men are ruining the world by launching wars, supporting autocrats, promoting corruption, carrying out dirty works and conspiring to silence or to assassinate their foes; through their control of the mighty United States of America.

Symbiosis: Politicians need Bankers to win seats. Similarly, Bankers need politicians in order to use Tax payer money to pay for their losses.

TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S INTERVIEW WITH NOVAYA GAZETA

 

1. Do you agree with the opinion expressed by many Russian and European politicians that the United States is primarily responsible for the economic difficulties that their countries are now living through?

 

No. We all are experiencing a severe economic crisis that is affecting the lives of many people in countries around the world. This crisis resulted from a culture of irresponsibility regarding financial matters that took hold over a number of years in the United States, Europe and elsewhere. I am proud of our efforts to lead by reforming our regulatory and supervisory systems and promoting an era of responsibility, so that the U.S. and global economies will be stable and growth will be sustained. We of course have an obvious interest in developing policies that stimulate economic growth in the United States, but we also believe that economic growth in our country also will nurture economic growth around the world, including in Russia.

In the 21st century, we all -Americans, Russians, and everyone else - have an interest in fostering world economic growth that benefits us all. We need to spend less time thinking about who is to blame and more time working together to do what needs to be done to get all of our economies moving in the right direction.

 

2. Do you agree that lies and greed - - lies about the state of markets and greed of their participants -- are the main reasons for the current economic crisis?

 

As I said to Congress in February, our economy did not fall into decline overnight. Nor did all of our problems begin when the housing market collapsed or the stock market sank. We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy. Yet we import more oil today than ever before. The cost of health care eats up more and more of our savings each year, yet we keep delaying reform. Our children will compete for jobs in a global economy that too many of our schools do not prepare them for. And though all these challenges went unsolved, we still managed to spend more money and pile up more debt, both as individuals and through our government, than ever before.

 

In other words, we have lived through an era where too often, short-term gains were prized over long-term prosperity; where we failed to look beyond the next payment, the next quarter, or the next election. A surplus became an excuse to transfer wealth to the wealthy instead of an opportunity to invest in our future. Regulations were gutted for the sake of a quick profit at the expense of a healthy market. People bought homes they knew they couldn’t afford from banks and lenders who pushed those bad loans anyway. And all the while, critical debates and difficult decisions were put off for some other time on some other day.

So as long as "greed comes in all races and colors" we should let certain untouchables to continue bribing politicians, misusing taxpayer money and waging wars. It is undemocratic to let a small group of blood suckers to lead Americans or any other people from the nose. The preacher president Obama is playing the game by the rules of Washington snakes.

I am sure that you understand that there are many snakes in your region. Both accepting bribes and looting small businesses. The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

You are right. Iraq is full of snakes and terrorists who had entered Baghdad behind US tanks. Adnan Darwash, Iraq Occupation Times

Guest Soldier of God

Peace be with you Adnan. You know that corruption is everywhere. Africans sold Africans as slaves. Whites sold whites as slaves. Indians sold Indians as slaves. Arabs sold Arabs as slaves. Chinese sold Chinese as slaves. The bible shows that Jews sold Jews as slaves. Christians sold Christians as slaves. The list goes on. There are good people in this world and there is bad. I think we should focus on the good. Tell us about some good people in Iraq right now that you support.
