"Change you can believe in." This was Barack Obama`s campaign slogan. There is no doubt that the American people were fed up with George W. Bush and his fellow Republicans. Who can blame them?
After campaigning for change back
in 1999 (What political challenger doesn`t campaign for
change?), President Bush and his fellow
neocons promptly set out to continue business as
Will Obama remove
Don`t get me wrong: Barack Obama
will doubtless throw out some bones to his liberal
supporters in much the same way that Republican
presidents throw out a bone or two to their conservative
constituents. Watch for Obama to overturn the ban on
embryonic stem cell research.
Obama might try to resurrect the "Fairness Doctrine." Some suggest that Obama might try to rid the prohibition of homosexuals serving in the armed forces, but I doubt that he will take on this one. The political net gain would not be worth the potential fallout.
Although he might want to, I doubt
that Obama will actively promote
additional gun control (Democrats always lose when
this happens). He may push for a ban on
magazines that hold over ten rounds, as
Bill Clinton did. If Obama does not go after guns
directly, we can expect some sort of attack on
ammunition (which is already happening) that will drive
up the cost of ammo even more. Of course, some sort of
gun confiscation or martial law could materialize in the
wake of another "terrorist" attack. But a McCain administration would act no
differently, so, again, the net result is zero change.
Remember, it was Republican George W. Bush who expunged
Posse Comitatus and deployed 20,000 army troops on
We can also expect more harassment of gun owners and lawful gun dealers by the BATFE. But this is no change at all. The current leadership at BATFE is already about as hostile to gun owners and gun dealers as it can possibly be. An Obama BATFE will be no worse. But neither will it be any better. Net result: no change.
So, what will be the overall change

The NAFTA superhighway will have

One reason why it is so easy to predict a business-as-usual Obama Presidency is the people that Obama has surrounded himself with. Former New York Federal Reserve chairman Timothy Geithner* for Secretary of the Treasury; former Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence Summers* for National Economic Council director; Bush`s Defense Secretary Robert Gates* will keep his job; Illinois Representative Rahm Emanuel for Obama`s Chief of Staff; Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State; Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano* for Secretary of Homeland Security; former South Dakota Senator Tom Daschle* to head the Health and Human Services Department; former Assistant Attorney General Eric Holder to be Attorney General; New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson* as Secretary of Commerce; Susan Rice* for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; Paul Volcker* for the Economic Recovery Advisory Board; James Steinberg* as Deputy Secretary of State; Mona Sutphen* for Deputy White House Chief of Staff, and Louis Caldera* for Director of the White House Military Office.
Does anyone see "change" with the above names? Every one of them is a longtime political insider. And at least eleven of them (those with an asterisk [*] behind their names, above) are members of the globalist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). In fact, six out of the eleven cabinet-level positions in the Obama administration are CFR members.
The CFR has dominated both Democrat and Republican Presidential administrations for decades. Presidents such as Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton have all been members of the CFR. Vice Presidents such as Hubert Humphrey, Nelson Rockefeller, Walter Mondale, and Dick Cheney have been CFR members. And over the last several decades, practically every secretary of defense, secretary of the treasury, and most CIA directors have been CFR members. And let`s not forget that this year`s Republican Presidential nominee, John McCain, is a CFR member.
Do you now see why—no matter who
is elected President of the

The only Republican candidate for President in 2008 who demonstrated those credentials was Dr. Ron Paul. And to a lesser degree, the only Democrat who even seemed to vaguely understand this was Dennis Kucinich.
Notice that both men were thoroughly repudiated by their respective parties` leadership and all but totally ignored by the national news media. (The CFR and their surrogates also control the national news media. What a coincidence!)
So, while the occupant at
