Ted Kennedy and Jimmy Carter are for Obama. People are likening Barack Obama to John and more so Robert Kennedy.
Barack Obama wants to increase the U.S. military. He's also said he would go into Pakistan to hunt down al Qaeda with or without Pakistani permission. He's made many statements against Iran that sound designed to placate false Zionists. He said he was against the Iraq War, but he's voted for the money to continue that war. John F. Kennedy too couldn't come across as soft (on Communism), so he drove home the point that he wouldn't back down.
However, once in office for a while, Kennedy started to learn just how insane U.S. expansion really is. He refused to destroy Cuba. He started taking away CIA power. He started pulling out of Vietnam. He started talking about peace with the U.S.S.R. Add to that, he also started changing the currency away from the usurers behind the Federal Reserve.
His brother, Robert F. Kennedy ("Bobby"), tangled with and somewhat backed down J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI. He also went after the Mafia, who it is alleged, felt betrayed by the Kennedy brothers' father, Joseph, who had long ties with organized crime dating back to Prohibition and who reputedly made deals through Frank Sinatra for the mob to swing votes particularly in critical West Virginia. Who knows what else was going on that hasn't been allowed into the daylight?
For those things and more, they killed JFK. The Empire murdered him. The plutocrats ordered it. The system carried it out and bungled the cover-up. Vice President Johnson took over and revved up the military-industrial complex through the false-flag operation in the Gulf of Tonkin and tried again to do the same in the Middle East with the USS Liberty that he allowed Israel to attack and very nearly sink.
So who is Barack Obama? Has he been to the Trilateral Commission? Is he a member of the Council on Foreign Relations? He's taking plenty of money isn't he?
Zbigniew Brzezinski, who founded the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller, is backing Barack Obama. Starting with the Carter administration, either the President or Vice-president has apparently represented the Trilateral Commission.
What about those who are supporting him? Does it say anything about him? Well, what does a Church do when someone who is unrepentant donates? The Church cannot sell indulgences. It has no "get out of hell or purgatory" passes for sale to the unrepentant. A U.S. president, on the other hand, can sell powerful favors. Would Barack Obama sell out in that way? Where's the fruit to be able to tell? We read what he's saying. He's a politician, low-key preacher. He's a motivational speaker. His talk though attempts to divert from his militarism. That cannot be denied. Those with the money though can hear him saying that he will change things but not in any way that will truly correct things. He'll change direction but not radically even though radical change is required.
He's getting big dollars from the nuclear-power industry and from Wall Street brokerages. As we've written, he's for a bigger military, which means bigger spending on military contractors and suppliers (weapons, etc.). Of course, the late frontrunners traditionally now have huge corporate backing either directly or via other means.
The corporations have to do this in their eyes. They have to buy the candidate to steer him or her.

Contrary to what some may imagine, Barack Obama is no economic egalitarian. He isn't even close to being a New Dealer. See my article, "12 Things U.S. Plutocrats Pay Billions to Suppress" for New Deal ideas and more. David Cutler, Jeffrey Liebman, and Austan Goolsbee are Obama's main economic advisors. They're more neoliberal than not. All of Barack's motivational speaking has little substance behind it. (See: by Max Fraser. The Nation. January 24, 2008.)
