Rupert Murdoch's cabloid Orcs--Hannity, O'Reilly, & Beck, e.g.--are all in a snit because the Obama regime is calling 'em out as the seditious assholes they are. Stung apparently by the criticism, the Orcs of Faux Nooz are accusing Obama of reviving that old Nixonian trick, the "enemies list." (Intriguing, innit, that when the Cretino-fascists need to revile someone, they compare the object of their derision with a criminal, despised, discreditied GOPuke? Just askin'.)
But the REAL "enemies" of the State are not the morons dribbling bile and resentment at Faux Nooz. Not at all. The REAL enemies are these guys:
Hank Paulson, Tim Geithner, Ben Bernanke, Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Alan Greenspan, Lloyd Blankfein, Jamie Dimon, John Mack, Vikram Pandit, John Thain, Hank Greenberg, Ken Lewis.Any or all of them, of course, could perish or disappear tomorrow and any and all would/could be instantaneously replaced from the ranks ot the loyal CorpoRats. It is not people who perpetuate institutions, benign or corrupt; each has its own internal grammar and syntax by which the intentionality of the beast is perpetuated (cf., e.g., Foucault, in The Archeology of Knowledge, on the making and maintenance of "discursive formations" and their relations with 'power.')
According to a piece today up on The Public Record, the men named herein constituted a "Wall Street Economic Hit Squad," targeting democracy-supporting regulation of the financial "markets":
These men ‘presided over the largest transfer of wealth in history, from the working class to the flamboyant super rich.’ What these men have done is obscene. After crashing the economy, trillions, literally trillions of dollars have been funneled into the pockets of a select few, in secrecy, while billions of people suffer in poverty, billions suffer to survive. This small tight-knit Wall Street cadre has committed a crime against humanity.": Since 1980, this crew of vultures has presided over the destruction of the "...the American middle class, once the only effective counter weight to Wall Street greed...Over 25 million people, in what was the US middle class, are now in full-blown crisis mode and urgently need to increase their income."
The problems began, of course, when the GOP/Regan(stet) regime determined it would be more cheaper and profitable--and more encumbering upon the people--to provide workers with easier access to credit than to raise the wages of American workers, whose shopping fueled the American--and the World's--economy. So, while Murkin workers pumped up the productivity curve to heights never before imagined, they were effectively becoming more and more indentured to the CorpoRat State.
