Barack Obama- the Saviour?

Here is a poem by the Zulu shaman Credo Mutwa about the new US President-Elect Barack Obama:

An actor walks upon the floodlit stage of life
wearing a mask of an angel beneath a demon's gown.
Pretence smiles upon the crowded hall of life
holding out hope as bright as it is false.
Son of a woman in whose veins flows the blood
of ancient Ireland and dark Africa's plains.
You are Obama, nick-named the standing king
You are Barack, oh, son born to deceive
The suffering hoards of Africa look up to you,
See a black saviour where nought but a Judas strides.
An entrapper of nations, bringer of dismal war
Behind the robes and the nylon wings of hope
Oh, may those who look upon you, see you as you are.
May those who hope in you behold you as you be
A prince deceitful to bring down Africa's shrines
A siren who leads Africa's ships onto rocks of obliteration.
Your rule my lord will not be one of peace
Your reign my king will not be one of smiles
Even as we speak in caves both dark and dank
Enraged fanatics plot your dark demise
They will put around your head a bloodwet martyr's crown.
Oh black Kennedy following the one before
May God forgive thee and thy fiery spouse
As you walk in silence from the stage of life Barack Obama, blessed son, Oh standing king.

Barack Obama, the saviour! This is what he seems like at the moment. Several times I’ve seen people reading his autobiography ( ). I’ve had to travel by train a lot recently and twice now I’ve seen people reading this book on the train. Both those people were black; in fact Obama is seen as a kind of black hero, as Robert Mugabe was thirty years ago; the irony is not lost to me. The City of London America Company, the organization better, and wrongly, known as the United States Federal Government has been rebranded! It has a new shiny, cuddly image! Obama is the Ronald McDonald of that new image. Obama’s appeal comes from his liberal image, like Kennedy, he represents hope and change. But if you look at the people in his administration what change do you see? His National Security Adviser is Zbigiew Brzezinski, an arch-conservative hawk who believes in using aggressive military power and high technology to dominate the globe (See: There will be none of this promoted “Change” during Obama’s term of office. Or maybe I ought to rephrase: no change that his lords and masters in the Illuminati don’t want. If Obama were to disobey his lords and masters and try to exercise his Constitutional powers of office then all I can say to him is… avoid driving past any school book depositories!

Obama is seen as a saviour and of course he would be! Every new political figurehead is presented as a saviour from the administration that preceded them. David Cameron is being so depicted by the British media and political spin-doctors. Tony Blair’s New Labour government was seen as a saviour from the previous Thatcherite Conservative government that had ruled Britain since 1979. But if you go back to the time Margaret Thatcher was elected you’ll see that she herself was seen as a saviour! She supposedly saved us from the runaway Socialism of the 1970’s, trade union militancy and the endless unjustified strikes. See a pattern emerging?
It saddens me to see so many people pinning their hopes on Barack Obama that he will deliver real change. He will not. In the same way, David Cameron will not do so either when he elected. I’m not holding my breath, let alone a pen in the polling booth, that things will be any different this time around.

I heard to day that Adolf Hitler was once nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize! That follows the themes of the above nicely.

I wasn't going to post a comment but after your comment I can't resist.
Was suggesting to a friend earlier today that we should rename ALL leaders (no matter how idolised) with the christian name 'Adolf' as a way of 'deprogramming' ourselves from the 'myths' of history & the belief that we need shepherding!

So was Menachem Begin, I think he even got 1 , but it wasn't for killing Brits. I think it was BSing over peace in the Holy land [ when , ooh 20-25 years ago]. It might prove a interesting post to look back at them all and see what they actually did, apart from receive praise, and a whopping great check.

All hail

Ben Emlyn-Jones said...

Hi WW, who not give them that name; they're all the bloody same it seems to me! What's more these are people from the institutions that supported Adolf Hitler!

I've started a thread on the David Icke Forum about Stan and Clint, including the most telling pics I could find. It wasn't eay because as you say, Stan was always pulling faces! Here it is:

Ben Emlyn-Jones said...

Afferismoon. Yes, wasn't Begin in EGRUN, the terrorist organization that helped establish Israel? Anyone can win the Nobel Peace Prize! How about Ivan the Terrible!? I mean, they gave one to Henry Kissinger after he flattened Cambodia!

Its not like it'll matter to most people who read this, but just so you know, Zbig isn't Obama's National Security Advisor. James Jones is. Speculation and fact are treated very similarly on sites like this, so I don't suppose it matters here.

Ben Emlyn-Jones said...

Make suppositions at you own risk, Bradley.

Yes, I see the person now officially-named as Obama's National Security Adviser is James Jones. But this doesn't mean that Brzezinski is out of the game; he has probably just dived under the radar. I wonder why he, or Obama, thought this necessary. Was he a bit too controversial for Obama's public image?

Devin said...

Ben-what a great post! I can't believe how the net 'synchs' peoples thoughts and actions-I had just got done over an hour ago private messaging another blogger-about how saddened I was to see the nightmare getting worse here instead of better-Zbig is indeed a person to watch out for-Heaven help us if Obama turns out to be our version of Mugabe-loved the poem-ps I voted for him-sad to say hopes have already been dashed-would you mind if I linked to HPANWO?-I will wait for your reply-Take care and be well!

Ben Emlyn-Jones said...

Hi Devin, of course you can link to HPANWO. Thanks for your interest.

Glad you liked the article, thanks. Credo Mutwa is the most fascinating person; I'll be writing more about him in the future. Have you seen his interview with David Icke?

There are more shameful things than voting for Obama though. I voted for Tony Blair when he was first elected in 1997. There, I said it! I'm not proud of it!

Dear Ben,

I'm a London-based filmmaker currently collaborating with the National Film and Television School on a documentary project about people who have had dreams, visions or fantasies about Barack Obama or simply about those who feel he has chaged their lives and world view in unprecedented ways.

My personal belief is that while good leadership is key to political organization the Obama phenomenon and the myth that has grown around his persona only distort the reality of the new white house regime in people's minds stopping them from exercising healthy scepticism and indeed any form reason on the subject.

The documentary I'm making over the next months will hopefully explore some of these issues and I would be very interested in talking to you more about it. Is there anywhere I might be able to contact you for a further conversation?
