As we noted in a recent Headline News article, Senator Obama is being supported by the same Establishment powers which has put men in the White House in the past. (Read NEWS2267, entitled "Senator Obama Has Strong Ties To Illuminati - Communist Illuminati At That!")
In this article, we report that the Foreign Policy adviser to Obama is none other than that old Illuminati warhorse, Zbigniew Brzezinski, a co-founder of the infamous Trilateral Commission. The Trilateral Commission was created in order to plan a smooth transition to the planned cashless Global Economy. Brzezinski was one of the original movers and shakers of the Trilateral, and has exhibited tremendous political clout.
He demonstrated that clout prior to the 1976 presidential election by plucking an obscure Georgia governor, Jimmy Carter, and ably maneuvered him into position as the Democrat nominee for President. During the election, Carter's campaign was superbly managed and the governor beat incumbent President Gerald Ford, who was a Bilderberger man. This campaign was an excellent example of the reality that, whenever the next four years are to have a domestic focus, a Democrat wins the election, but if the next 4 years is to have a foreign policy focus, a Republican ascends to the Oval Office. The 13-year Vietnam War was over, and American troops had been extracated, as had several thousands of prominent South Vietnamese who were plucked by helicopter out of that doomed country.
The next 4 years were to focus on domestic policy, so Democrat Carter beat Gerald Ford in the 1976 election.
During the election, Candidate Carter wielded a club over Ford's head called "The Misery Index". This composite figure is nothing more than adding the Unemployment Rate to the Consumer Price Index. The idea of this figure is rather simple, as this featured article explains.
NEWS BRIEF: "Misery",
Written by Jeff Thredgold, President & CEO, Thredgold Economic Associates,

"One of the major political issues that greatly impacted results of U.S. Presidential elections during 1976 and 1980 was frequent reference to 'the misery index'. This so-called 'index' was simply the sum of the nation’s most recent Unemployment Rate and the rise in the nation’s Consumer Price Index for the most recent 12-month period. This combination was a simple way to measure the level of 'pain' or 'misery' of the American people when it came to the overall level of joblessness and the loss of purchasing power due to rising inflation."
The American people took this simple index figure to heart, because it was easy to understand and easy to place blame on someone for their economic woes and insecurities. Candidate Carter used this index greatly to his advantage during the 1976 campaign.
"The misery index was first made politically newsworthy by Democratic Presidential Candidate Jimmy Carter in 1976. During the Presidential election of that year, Mr. Carter constantly attacked President Gerald Ford for his mishandling of the American economy. Candidate Carter frequently noted during the campaign that the misery index was in the mid-teens, as compared to much lower levels during the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s. Mr. Carter’s criticism of President Ford’s economic mismanagement was effective, helping him defeat the incumbent Republican President during the November 1976 election."
As I stated earlier, America was in a great deal of stress in 1976. Americans were loathed by a great many foreigners throughout the world because of Vietnam. Veterans were thoroughly despised by a lot of fellow Americans. And, the economy was writhing under the effects of so many years of war and because it was trying to transition from a wartime economy to a peacetime economy.
And, finally, many Americans had lost faith in their country.
Therefore, when Jimmy Carter's presidential campaign rolls out the "Misery Index" as an indicator as to how well or how poorly America was performing under President Ford, that hit a real hot spot in the American psyche. Many Americans believed that Carter would turn matters around and reduce the "misery" which Americans felt at that time.
Sadly, economic matters only got worse under Carter. Unemployment skyrocketed, as did inflation, as did the value of gold and of silver and other commodities. President Carter was operating under the heel of Zbigniew Brzezinski. As we reported in NEWS2267, Brzezinski believed that Marxism was a healthy system and contributed greatly to the advancement of mankind! Let us show you that quote again.
"Marxism represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man's universal vision. Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief....The nation-state is gradually yielding its sovereignty....Further progress will require greater American sacrifices. More intensive efforts to shape a new world monetary structure will have to be undertaken, with some consequent risk to the presently favorable American position." (Brzezinski, in his book, ""Between Two Ages", quoted by "Secret Records Revealed: The Men, the Money and the Methods Behind the New World Order ", Dr. Dennis Cuddy, (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: Hearthstone Publishing, Ltd., 1999), p.113-114.
Therefore, when you study the economic policies of the Carter Administration, you will discover the hidden hand of socialism all throughout. Since Socialism - Communism has never, ever produced a vibrant, healthy economy, the economic policies of Carter/Brzezinski drove the economy into a tailspin. It took President Reagan's "supply side" economic plans to restore the American economy to health.
During the 1980 presidential campaign, Candidate Reagan held a series of nationally televised debates with President Carter. At the very end of the last debate, Reagan looked into the camera and said, "I say to the American people tonight, as yourself this question: 'Am I better off than I was 4 years ago'? "
From that moment onward, Reagan took an insurmountable lead over Carter and won in a landslide.
During the 1980 campaign, Reagan made much use of the "Misery Index", since it was higher than when Carter was criticising President Ford in 1976!
The point I am making here is that Senator Obama is under the thumb and guidance of Zbigniew Brzezinski. This influence of the Marxist-oriented Brzezinski is what turned the four years of the Carter Administration into such a disaster for the American people. And, I am convinced that four years of an Obama Administration will produce the same horrible fruits.
What has been the "Misery Index" for Presidents since World War II?
President Time Period Average Misery Index
|Presidents||Years of Office||Misery Index|
|Jimmy Carter||1977 - 1980||16.27|
|Gerald Ford||1974 - 1976||15.93|
|Ronald Reagan||1981 - 1988||12.19|
|George H.W. Bush||1989 - 1992||10.68|
|Richard Nixon||1969 - 1973||9.98|
|George W. Bush||2001 - 2007||7.89|
|Harry Truman||1948 - 1952||7.87|
|William J. Clinton||1993 - 2000||7.80|
|John F. Kennedy||1961 - 1962||7.27|
|Lyndon Johnson||1963 - 1968||6.78|
|Dwight Eisenhower||1953 - 1960||6.26|
(Source: "The US Misery Index by President 1948 to 2007")
As you can see, the "Misery Index" under President Carter is the highest of all time, followed only by the brief tenure of President Ford, as he attempted to right an American ship buffeted by the Nixon Impeachment Scandal and the aftermath of the Vietnam War.
Through the end of 2007, the "Misery Index" under our current President, George W. Bush, is 7.89, not too far above the Clinton index of 7.80. This fact means that the economy is not under the kind of stress which would bring it down. We have difficulties and manufactured stresses, while certain companies and individuals are hurting; but, the economy is actually in better shape than the Mass Media would have us believe.
If Senator Obama is elected President, I am convinced that Zbigniew Brzezinski will resurrect the Carter economic policies which proved to be so disastrous.
