ObamaStandardsFriday, November 19, 2010
To show you the level of dedication Obama has to his green policy – designed to enrich the corporate state and control and imprison the masses – note his usual flair for arrival at ….. a green summit.
The Portuguese hosts of Friday’s NATO summit hoped to use the event to promote clean-energy and electric cars, but all eyes were on US President Barack Obama’s diesel-guzzling “Beast” instead.
As is usual when he travels, Obama’s eight-tonne armoured behemoth of a limousine was flown out to Lisbon before the US leader’s arrival, and it ferried him from the airport tarmac to his first meetings of the weekend.
Doubtless he didn’t intend the Beast’s roar to drown out his hosts’ green message, but a US presidential motorcade and its attendant escort of Secret Service SUVs do attract attention, even at the most elite gatherings.
All the White House ever has to say about these events is that the president’s security arrangements are “non-negotiable.” Our lives, of course, are not only negotiable, but we are like little Lego sets for the central planners who sit on the floor cross-legged and follow the enclosed instructions to piece us all together in ways convenient for the class of almighty rulers.
