Not to scoff at the Obama changers, but it appears his administration is shaping up to be more of the same, albeit with a distinct Clintonian coloration.
According to the New York Times, Obama has selected Christina Romer to be the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. Romer is said to be a protégé of former Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin, who is acting as an “informal” advisor to Obama.
Hail, hail the gang’s all here. Rubin is Director and Senior Counselor of Citigroup, that is to say he is a bankster insider. Late in the Clinton administration, Rubin worked with former Fed mob boss Alan Greenspan and Lawrence Summers through the IMF to bring Russia to its knees. Time Magazine dubbed the three “The Committee to Save the World,” that is to save it for the international bankers and the global elite. He also received the Presidential Citizens Medal for his diligent work on behalf of our rulers.
As should be expected, Obama’s economic team is being handpicked by the Council on Foreign Relations. In addition to being the Chairman of Citigroup, former Goldman-Sachs “associate” Rubin is currently co-chairman of the board of directors of the Council on Foreign Relations.
“The president-elect used the announcement Monday that he was appointing two Rubin protégés, Timothy Geithner as Treasury secretary and Lawrence Summers as senior White House economic adviser, to underscore his determination to step aggressively into a economic leadership vacuum in Washington while also maintaining continuity with the Bush administration before the transition of power Jan. 20,” reports the International Herald Tribune.

Leadership vacuum, what leadership vacuum? The CFR and the Money Trust (as Charles Lindbergh, Sr. deemed it) have controlled the country since the Federal Reserve Act was passed in December 1913. A few years later, in 1921, the CFR was officially established and packed with bankers such as J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Paul Warburg, Otto Kahn, and Jacob Schiff. It was the same clique which had engineered the establishment of the Federal Reserve System.
For the poor deluded souls who think Obama will pay their rent and buy their groceries, they should bear in mind that Rubin is a neoliberal “reformer,” that is to say he thinks the plebs need to go without. “We must have serious spending discipline and entitlement reform,” the bankster said back in 2005. Serious reform for grandmothers eking by on Social Security and Medicare, not for the Pentagon and Wall Street. Rubin’s handpicked underlings will continue implementing neoliberal policies.
Obama will be the CFR-bankster administration on steroids. The CFR, after all, was established as a front for J.P. Morgan and Company at the behest of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, that is to say the “English Establishment,” or more generally the Anglo-American power structure, as noted by CFR historian Carroll Quigley.
“The CFR is the American Branch of a society which originated in England, and which believes that national boundaries should be obliterated, and a one-world rule established,” Bill Clinton mentor Quigley wrote. “The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common — they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty of the national independence of the United States. A second clique of international members in the CFR comprises the Wall Street international bankers and their key agents. Primarily, they want the world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government.”
It will be this clique running the United States, not Obama. Its predecessors caused the 1907 panic and thereby forced Congress to create a National Monetary Commission and eventually the Federal Reserve System. The Fed engineered the so-called Great Depression by ruthlessly expanding the money supply and then pulling the plug. “It was not accidental. It was a carefully contrived occurrence… The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so that they might emerge as rulers of us all,” noted Louis McFadden, Chairman of the House Banking Committee.
The Obamatrons are clueless to the fact the international banksters are in the process of a serious if not more dramatic repeat. Before they may proceed, however, they need to stack the deck with operatives such as Robert Rubin and his trusted underlings.
