Global elite pick and choose what brutal dictator Obama will sidle up to
December 11, 2013
Predictably, that Obama handshake with the killer Raul Castro at the Mandela funeral has stirred up old right-vs-left animosities. It has provided yet another excuse to engage in distractive partisan political theater.
On the so-called Left side of the establishment, former Clinton counselor and a current fixture at CNN, Paul Begala, said Obama shook Castro’s hand “because he knows he’s on the right side of history.”
Chuck Todd, NBC’s chief White House watcher, tweeted dismissively about negative coverage of the handshake:
Really? An entire segment on a handshake? Good grief; pandering to an audience

CNN, meanwhile, dedicates precious news real estate to things that really matter, for instance the upcoming pornographic melodrama, Fifty Shades of Grey.
On the supposed Right, the Castro-Obama tête-à-tête is grist for a good old fashion, if stale, bash fest of communism, not that Cuba has anything actually approaching communism in a textbook sense.
Rumored presidential hopeful, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, walked out of Raul Castro’s speech during the Mandela photo op (and selfie op) because “Castro has wrongly imprisoned and tortured countless innocents. Just as Mandela was released after 27 years in prison, Castro should finally release his political prisoners. He should hold free elections, and once and for all, set the Cuban people free,” according to the Senator.
Cruz was right about that, but, unfortunately, representatives of the United States government on both sides of the artificial aisle have a peculiar habit of singling out certain dictators and thugs while leaving others, who are useful to the globalist agenda, unscathed. Augusto Pinochet, Manuel Noriega, Islam Karimov (who prefers his opponents boiled alive), King Abdulla, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, and dozens of others have enjoyed the overt support of the United States government.
Not long ago, Obama engaged in a photo op with Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the brutal dictator of Equatorial Guinea. It is said Obiang is worst than another African thug, Robert Mugabe.
Over at Breitbart, John Hayward threw the racist thug-in-chief of Zimbabwe into the mix.
“Mugabe offers no romantic illusions, no Great Man of History action figure for liberals to add to their collections, careful not to break the plastic packaging of truth and spoil its mint-condition value,” Hayward writes. “And nobody in the White House relishes the notion of Obama-Mugabe handshake photos popping across the Internet with smartass meme-generator text added.”
True enough, except for one small and unmentioned detail — the globalists like Mugabe enough to have showered him with a considerable amount of expropriated cash. The U.S. and its partner countries in the globalist outfit the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development gifted the blood diamond profiteer $1.1 billion over the years.
Both sides of the establishment political party have their preferred thugocrats. It’s all part of the false right-vs-left paradigm dog and pony show. Obama lines up for a photo op with Teodoro Obiang, who stands accused of cannibalism for eating parts of his opponents to gain power, because the global elite are keen on extracting a bonanza of recently discovered oil in the Gulf of Guinea. Castro, who had his political opponents executed, is nothing short of saint when stacked up against Obiang.
Cruz and the Republicans might want to point that one out. But then that might create a headache for ExxonMobil, Marathon Oil, Chevron, and other transnational corporations in the bankster constellation.
Congress, after all, takes its marching orders from Wall Street, not the American people.
