Last December, a two-part article discussed Obama's year one betrayal and failure, accessed through the following links:
In year two, the pattern continued, revealing domestic and foreign policies that:
-- outdid George Bush by exceeding his harshness, lawlessness, belligerency, and public trust betrayal;
-- maintained a 30 year agenda of shifting public wealth to the rich, as well as supporting capital, not public welfare, including targeting middle class households for destruction;
-- looted the nation's wealth, wrecked the economy, and consigned growing millions to impoverishment without jobs, homes, savings, social services, or futures;
-- let hunger, homelessness, poverty, and those uninsured grow to unacceptable levels;
-- backed Wall Street's financial coup d'etat by greater Fed empowerment, as well as institutionalizing speculation, "too-big-to fail," super-wealth, and big money power;
-- plans new global monetary measures to control the world's money;
-- continued America's permanent war agenda by expanding imperial adventurism, increasing covert and overt aggression on new fronts with out-of-control military spending, exceeding the rest of the world combined at a time America has no enemies;

Over sixty different products of prepared pastries, quiches and pot pies containing ingredients from Rolf’s Patisserie, including gingerbread houses, and all sold by Whole Foods Market in 23 states, are being recalled for possible health risk, although no one has become ill.
The FDA recall notices advise that Rolf’s Patisserie products "have been connected to several outbreaks of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) food poisoning," but "no illnesses have been reported from consumers."
Private First Class Bradley Manning spent his Christmas this year in a 6-foot by 12-foot prison cell at the Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia, where he has been held since May. He is in solitary confinement. He is under continuous surveillance, and must respond to cell checks every five minutes. He cannot keep any personal items in his cell. And he is not even allowed to exercise in his small quarters.
These conditions, as described by Manning's attorney, David E. Coombs, seem like harsh and cruel punishment even for the most violent, most dangerous convicted criminals. But Manning has not been convicted of any crime at this point. He is accused of being the source of the classified U.S. government documents that Wikileaks has been sharing with the world, but he still awaits his day in military court.

The judge, the court and this entire system that persecutes innocents deserves to be spat upon and drowned in spit. Hardcore criminals who’ve dedicated their lives to looting this nation are actively running the government, roaming scot-free as if they owned this country – let me add, they do - and they dare sentence to life a man who has given his best years to the poor and the downtrodden!
Mukesh Ambani can own a house worth 2 billion dollars in this poor and ravaged nation! Narendra Modi can murder Muslims and head the state of Gujarat! Manmohan Singh can make a fraud nuclear deal with criminals like George Bush Jr. and be the Prime Minister of India! They can prostitute India’s unity and integrity! And Binayak Sen must go to jail because he serves poor tribals and is critical of policies of the wretched, dishonorable BJP government in Chhattisgarh! Draining the resources of this nation, putting the nation on sale, using government machinery to torture and kill – isn’t that sedition and conspiracy against the state?
