STOP AND FRISK: President Evo Morales, by Dr. Steven Nur Ahmed

President Morales of Bolivia

Evo Morales is the President of Bolivia. He is the first indigenous person (Native American) to be elected to the Presidency in that nation.  Bolivia has had a long history of struggle against  U.S. and European colonial exploitation of its land and people.  He was refused flight travel over several European nations on Tuesday July 2, 2013.  He had been in Russia to attend a trade conference.

His Presidential plane was forced to land in Vienna, Austria because it had run short on fuel.  President Morales’ life was put in danger because the United States by order of President Barak Obama interfered with his flight over the air space of its European allies: France, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.  These actions were done on the presumption that Edward Snowden was on the Presidential plane.  Such actions were criminal.

Once President Evo Morales’ plane had landed it was forcibly searched.  It was an unparalleled violation of international law.  His plane was stopped and it was searched no differently than the 800,000 minority persons on the streets of New York city were stopped and frisked in 2012.  South American grass root leaders have long suffered this form of physical and psychological abuse.     

It is evidence of the prevailing plutocratic attitude toward non-white leaders world-wide.  That plutocratic attitude is capsulated by the denigrating statement made by Secretary of State John Kerry in April 2013 when he likened South America to Washington’s “backyard”.  That is the slave-owner plantation mentality.  It is the mentality of gang lords. It is the sound of the ‘whip-cracker’.  John Kerry is a ‘Whip-Cracker’ and President Barak Obama is a ‘Whip-Cracker’, too. Never mind the color of his skin.


But there is dramatic irony to this act of aggression toward Bolivia and charges against Edward Snowden.  Its called ‘Operation Paperclip’.  After World War II, it was determined that the Nazi government had incinerated over 6,000,000 Jews, Socialists, Journalists, and conscientious whistleblowers. Nevertheless, our United States government allowed over 104 of those very same Nazi leaders entry into the United States where they lived very good lives long after the war ended under fabricated biographies made up by the Office of Strategic Services (forerunner of the CIA).  Harry Truman, a presumed member of the KKK, ordered it.  I hope you’re getting the point.

Edward Snowden is not a Nazi nor a murderer. He was under oath to: ‘Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States ‘against all enemies foreign and domestic.’  His act of conscientiousness was an act to defend the citizens of the United States against violations of their 4th amendment rights from anyone or group who would destroy that right.  For Snowden not to have acted conscientiously would have been a crime because he would have been in breach of an oath which takes precedence over all lesser laws. 




The mass of evidence is increasingly compelling informed Americans to conclude that President Barak Obama is but another presidential link in a long chain of Presidents who is under the absolute control of the military-industrial-complex pushing the United States into a state of fascism. This claim is not made lightly or as opinion. Incontrovertible facts support it.

First, President Obama campaigned in 2008 that the war in Iraq was illegal. He boasted that as a senator he did not vote to attack Iraq under the Bush administration because the claims made by Colin Powell in 2003 at the United Nations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction were false and that the Bush administration knew it. He used that argument against Hillary Clinton who voted for the war.  But once President Obama became President he didn’t stop the war, he altered the nature of the war by using drones indiscriminately in Pakistan, Somalia, and Yemen to kill suspected terrorists and all those Muslims in close proximity including children.  He ordered the use of drones by the CIA in those countries with full knowledge that he was violating their national sovereignty under international law.

Second, President Obama ordered the killing of U.S. citizens in Yemen one of whom was a 16 year old child who was having breakfast with other children.  He gave that order knowing that it violated the Federal Juvenile Act and the 5th amendment right of those U.S. citizens to their right to due process under law.  His press secretary said that the child should have picked a better father.  Obama rationalized his order to assassinate on the basis of speech which under the constitution is a protected right.  He is also setting up the African Command to commit the same kinds of war crimes while at the same time approving monetary aid to countries with child soldiers in Africa. Is this a set up to kill more children?

Thirdly, you ordered yet another violation of international law by using the North Atlantic Treaty Organization out of its jurisdiction and contrary to the United Nations into an unprovoked attack on Libya. You set the stage and furthered the murder of the national leader of Libya, Qaddafi, just as Eisenhower ordered a CIA hit on President Patrice Lumumba of the Congo in 1961 and Bush on Saddam Hussain. Since then Congo has been pillaged by multinational corporations for the mineral coltan and other minerals while its people remain dirt poor. Libya is now a ghetto nation like Iraq and Syria. President Obama knew better because the British did it to his father’s family in Kenya. They kept the Kenyans in a perpetual state of ghetto.  But ghetto doesn’t resonate with President Obama here or abroad.

Fourthly, he has not fought congress to reinstitute Glass-Steagall which your mentor William Jefferson Clinton helped repeal for his and your corporate bosses; he has instead catered wholly to corporate powers which donated heavily to both of his presidential campaigns. For example, he signed into law the Monsanto Protection Act (see section 735) which gives ‘Monsanto Corporation’ immunity from federal courts pending the review of any GM crop that is thought to be dangerous. Even more, in his 2013 state of the union he endorsed a free trade agreement with the European Union which would grant corporations the power to challenge many regulations both at home and abroad.  These facts are indisputable.

When President Obama took office in 2008, he appointed Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner both of whom were and are Wall Street agents and crime partners with the major banks which stole trillions of dollars from the American people and which caused the 2008 economic meltdown. President Obama knew that.  He was told to keep them.

Yet, President Obama has not addressed the fact that major banks such as JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo aid in the ghetto payday loans to exploit the poor with up to 500% interest rates on the internet. Its alright to leach on the poor; that’s the nature of his administration.

Instead, President Obama will meet in Lima, Peru to endorse the ‘Trans-Pacific-Partnership Treaty’ which will give corporations everywhere the right to have a trade tribunal hear claims brought against them; it would override U.S. Federal law.  It is an act against poor nations and poor people in those nations. President Obama knows that.  He condones it for his corporate masters.

Fifthly, President Obama attended a Bilderberg meeting in 2008 before he was elected. He has not revealed to his constituents why he attended and what the nature of his meeting with its members, who happen to be the most powerful men in the world, was.  However, we do know that Chris Hughes, Editor of the New Republic and co-founder of Face-Book attended a Bilderberg meeting in 2011. We also know that he was the ‘coordinator for online organizing’ for the Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and donated millions of dollars to Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign. See: ‘The Kid who made Obama President…, Fast Company Magazine’. We also know that Chris Hughes is gay and made over 500 million dollars in 2012. That’s why you argued that the Supreme Court should strike down the ‘Defense of Marriage, Act’ 2-23-2013. No President Obama, gays did not put you in office; African Americans put you in office.  For them you have done nothing.  And don’t throw out to us the ‘Obama-Care’ bone because the insurance industry will profit from ‘Obama-Care.’ That’s not enough pay back for a 93% African American voter support.

Sixthly, President Obama dog’s the poor. He has not advocated for public education and so he silently supports the privatization of K-12 education.  But there’s more, in 2008 he promised that he’d never cut Social Security to the elderly but now he says that it is on the table as a possibility under a ‘chained CPI’ proposal.  Further, he has done nothing to address the crisis of prison incarceration in the United States and again by silence condones the privatization of the criminal justice system for profit.

Seventh, President Obama is now engaged in a frontal attack on the rights of all American citizens.  He signed into law on 2012 the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) which allows the government to indefinitely detain U.S. citizens with no right of habeas corpus (Section 1021).

Now a courageous American has stepped forward. Edward Snowden who is an ex- CIA agent has leaked a totally fascist plan by President Obama, et al. The Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act has been found to allow the FBI and National Security Agency secret ‘back door’ access which they have been using for over a year at a 300,000,000 intercepted calls per day clip of all phone calls, emails, pictures, and videos  through and by cooperation with INTERNET PROVIDERS such as Verizon, AT&T, Yahoo, Google, Microsoft-Skype, AOL, et al of all U.S. citizens with complete disregard for the 4th amendment prohibition against warrantless searches of persons, houses, papers, and effects without a warrant which if given would require an affidavit which particularly describes the person or things to be searched or seized based upon probable cause and signed by a judge .

The ‘New York Times’ has stated that President Obama has lost all credibility. Just weeks before this new revelation it had been found the Eric Holder who is the U.S. Attorney General had signed on a memorandum authorizing the FBI to spy on ‘Associated Press’ news reporter’s phone calls. And on top of that, the Internal Revenue Service is charged with having targeted persons because of their political association or those political parties which applied for tax exempt status.


The facts support the following conclusion. President Obama is a war criminal and a corporate puppet. His smile will not fool historians in the future nor will it fool intelligent people today. He has joined the ranks of J. Edgar Hoover the master mind of ‘co-intell-pro’, smut spying, and murder . We, U.S. citizens, are now living in a fascist state. There has been a corporate hostile takeover of our government. It is now a corporate and military-police power structured to exercise totalitarian rule over us. You may consume alcohol, smoke weed, listen to hip-hop; you may use drugs until your brain is mush, watch television until your eyes are red, but you may not think.  Welcome to the ‘Brave New World’ of America.
