Webster G. Tarpley
November 9, 2010

The results of last Tuesday’s election must be interpreted as a repudiation of the Obama presidency, and also as a vote in favor of divided government. Voters wanted to end one-party rule in Washington, and this has been accomplished. Voters were more than willing to accept a couple of years of gridlock, since they are not inclined to hand a blank check to the unacceptable and incompetent agendas of either major political party. There certainly was no mandate for the raving reactionary policies put forward by the Republican Party.
A Vote Against Obama and for Divided Government, not in Favor of the GOP

For the first time since World War II, the House of Representatives has changed hands without being accompanied by the Senate. One reason is that the voters have even more contempt for the Republicans than they do for the Democrats, and wanted to do just enough to apply the brakes without allowing the GOP to begin controlling events. The House of Representatives was easy to target because of its foolish vote in favor of cap and trade. The House is also the home of Pelosi, the most demonized figure in the elections. Most important of all may be the fact that House races are the kind of political arena in which massive amounts of outside money injected by reactionary businessmen like the Koch brothers, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Republican Governors’ Association, and other malefactors of great wealth can have the biggest impact. It is much easier for negative advertising paid for by outside interests to determine the outcome in House District than in a state or on a national scale. If this is taken into account, we can explain why the usual 20 to 30 seat loss for the Democrats turned into twice that, with the outside money made possible by the Citizens United Supreme Court decision playing a major role. As for the pluto-candidates, who sought to buy public office outright, they generally fared very poorly. This applies to assorted super-rich reactionaries like Whitman, Fiorina, MacMahon, Raese, and a few others.

Sadly, these events confirm the forecasts made by the present writer in Obama: the Postmodern Coup – the Making of the Manchurian Candidate, published in March 2008 in advance of the Pennsylvania primary, and in Barack H. Obama: The Unauthorized Biography, which appeared in August 2008, well before the Democratic National Convention. Obama has always been a recipe for disaster on the same general lines as Jimmy Carter, but on an incomparably larger scale. Obama is in the process of aborting and wasting the golden opportunity of 2008, which would have been to organize a return to the successful policies of the Franklin D. Roosevelt New Deal, repeating the historical victory of the American people over pro-fascists and reactionaries in 1932. The resulting political coalition and pattern of dominance in the Electoral College could have lasted until the middle of the 21st century, reducing the reactionary Republicans to total impotence in the status of a regional ethno-cultural force favored by xenophobes and low-wage employers in backward rural areas of the Southern states. Instead, these same reactionaries are now resurgent, thanks in large measure to Obama. If Obama is allowed to stay in office for another two years, and especially if he is allowed to secure re-nomination, he will wreck the Democratic Party for a generation, and will doom all progressive causes to utter defeat for the foreseeable historic future. Obama must therefore be dumped.

I know this is a bit old but Mr.Tarpley makes some interesting points about this past election cycle.We have a disconnected Oligarchy who are beginning to realize that the pie is beginning to shrink and it's now becoming everyman for himself or as Tarpley calls it "life boat morality."Are we heading toward a Weimar style collapse? and how will someone with the ego of President Obama react to a rebellion within his own faction of the republicratic party? e-dems/#more-1959

You only left out take back states rights, prosecute the banksters for bankrupting the country and anyone else connected, close the borders, bring the troops home and get our country making things again. We are a country of stock clerks and cashiers instead of skilled craftsmen and manufacturers of real goods.

How again does this rate as a conspiracy? Perhaps this could qualify as a rant. Republicans should go home to their wives and leave the Senate pages alone....they should consider the American worker and represent them instead of screwing them and giving all benefits to their bosses . They should stop the shameless pandering to oil companies and stop letting oil companies POISON peoples well water..but how can they do that when they have already sold their souls to the devils and taken campaign money?

The GOP is a professional bunch of well organized, fast talking crooks who will kill human beings, are poisoning them right long as there is someone willing to pay them to look the other way.
