Typically, most heads of state and diplomats will rightfully say it's not their place to comment on internal American affairs, even though that's exactly what WE, the world's PRESUMED superpower, have been doing to other developing countries for so many generations. President Obama said at one point during this hostage-taking manufactured crisis, that we're "not a banana republic." Really? Perhaps the President would like to revise and extend his remarks in light of Prince Alwaleed's statements.
Here's Prince Alwaleed LECTURING Americans while talking to A BRIT:
Lecturing CONGRESS and THE PRESIDENT:"As for the U.S. economy, as we all know, that the 2nd of August is nearing very fast, and it's very important for the members of Congress and the president of the United States, Obama, to reach a conclusion as swiftly as possible because the budget deficit in the United States and the cumulative debt and the raising of the debt ceiling, it does not only impact the United States economy but also impacts the whole world economies."
DICTATING TERMS TO THE GANG OF SIX:"So it's very important for the U.S. Congress, represented by the Senate and the House of Representatives, and by President Obama, to come close together and to finish it — to finish an agreement as soon as possible."
AND THE MOST AMAZING, AND REVEALING, PART OF THE INTERVIEW IS THE SAUDI PRINCE DICTATING TO OUR CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT EXACTLY WHICH STRUCTURAL CHANGES ARE ACCEPTABLE TO THEM (PLUTOCRATS AND WALL STREET MOGULS) AND WHICH ARE NOT:"And frankly speaking, the so-called Gang of Six should be expanded to represent all the — both the — all the House's members and the Senate's members and reach a conclusion as quickly as possible."
TRANSLATION: Why are we at an IMPASSE in Washington with this manufactured crisis? Why can't the President, Republicans and Democrats simply accede to the American people's EXPRESSED WISHES AND REACH AN AGREEMENT WHICH DOES NOT TOUCH ENTITLEMENTS — SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE AND MEDICAID — RAISES TAXES ON THE RICH, AND MAKES TARGETED CUTS IN DEFENSE, FOR EXAMPLE, WHICH WOULD NOT HURT THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE POOR? WHY?MORGAN: When you have a debt approaching $13 trillion and rising all the time and calls now for that debt ceiling to be risen again, surely it is now the time for the American administration to implement higher taxation, isn't it? I mean, you have to get more revenue back into the system.
BIN TALAL: It is very clear that the Republicans do not want to raise taxes. And clearly, President Obama and the Democrats would like to have an element of taxing — of taxes to be raised. Clearly, cutting spending is very important. Clearly, attaching entitlement, whether it's Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid, are going to have to happen.
BECAUSE a multibillionaire Saudi Prince, who owns a large portion of Fox "News" has dictated to Congress and the President terms THAT ARE ACCEPTABLE TO TRANSNATIONAL PLUTOCRATS, WALL STREET, AND THE CORPORATE ELITES. PRINCE BIN TALAL REPRESENTS FEWER THAN 1,000 POWERFUL INDIVIDUALS WORLDWIDE WHO FEEL ENTITLED TO DISMISS WHAT 80 PERCENT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT AND DICTATE TO OUR GOVERNMENT THE TERMS OF ANY DEBT "AGREEMENT."
HERE'S SAUDI PRINCE ALWALEED BIN TALAL, WALL STREET'S SPOKESMAN: " CLEARLY, ATTACHING ENTITLEMENT, WHETHER IT'S SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, OR MEDICAID, ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAPPEN."
"... ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAPPEN."... "It is very clear that the Republicans do not want to raise taxes" AND "Clearly, cutting spending is very important." BUT CUTTING ENTITLEMENTS — SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE, AND MEDICAID — "ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAPPEN." WHAT A FUCKING ASSWIPE.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY? SINCE WHEN DO THE PEOPLE RULE? ANSWER: SINCE BEFORE THE CITIZENS UNITED DECISION CAME DOWN. MEMO TO THE TEABAGGERS: HERE'S YOUR NEW MANTRA; REPEAT IT WITH YOUR PRAYERS: "I'M AN IGNORANT SAUDI BIG OIL CORPORATE TOOL."
