A must see!
In other words, judging from the opening, the African-Americans elected Obama as one of their own. This cinematic technique is known as montage. First, shots of Obama making a speech. Then close ups of hysterically happy black faces. It's a familiar propaganda device, demonstrated experimentally in the 20s by Kuleshev. The technique was perfected by Sergei Eisenstein in movies designed to promote Bolshevism in the USSR.
The rest of the film includes suspicious quotations by Obama. We know nothing of the contexts. Sometimes there are quasi-logical arguments advanced by such experts on political psychology as hip hop stars.
In general, the message seems to be that the president is nothing more than a tool of Wall Street and his goal is to establish a New World Order in which we will all be deprived of our freedom to buy the light bulb of our choice. There is no room for ambiguity. It means nothing that Obama established the Consumer Financial Protection Agency in an attempt to introduce some order into Wall Street's shenanigans, or that the Harvard professor who helped design the agency, Elizabeth Warren, wasn't even nominated by Obama to head the agency because it was an accepted fact that she would have been blocked by Congress. Something like that, anyway. The usual comparisons to Nazis and communists flourish. The nation is headed towards hell in a handbasket because we have elected a secret traitor to democracy. The sky will fall, maybe tomorrow.
Anyone who already believes in this global conspiracy business should watch it. They'll be gratified to find evidence for their delusions. For the rest of us, this farrago of lies and insinuations and propaganda isn't really worth further attention or comment. It's all pretty depressing -- not the film itself, so much as the realization that there are millions of otherwise sane Americans who are applauding it.
It's here that this "documentary" becomes deranged; Jones starts inserting clips to try to prove there is a global conspiracy to start a secret New World Order, and that Obama is just part of that plan.
All of the accusations that are made towards Obama could much more easily have been made during Bush during the two wars he declared, where Bush both forbade public protests within two miles of his appearances, while blacking out media coverage of coffins returning from Iraq; a disgrace to the servicemens' families. You would expect a leftist lunatic directing this at Bush and Cheney, but instead it's Jones directing it at Obama.
I got about halfway through this before I had to skip ahead, and finally got to the ending that redefines paranoid delusion. I couldn't even understand what convoluted statement Jones was trying to make, and I think it is fair to conjecture that neither could he.
This undefinable mess (it can't be called a documentary or even a film), will not even be an oddity in the dustbin of history, because it makes no coherent statement, and has garnered attention only from the extreme fringe. I give it 2 stars, because there was a lot of editing involved; dizzying, disjointed editing that undermined whatever he was trying to say and induced a migraine, but editing nonetheless.
I should have checked out "Splash" instead..... Yes, it's that bad.
The documentary presents the conspiracy theory that American presidents since the 1960's have served as "front men" for entities such as the Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Wall Street banks, the Federal Reserve, the Military-industrial complex and others, arguing that multinational corporations and powerful elite families, such as the Rothschild family and Rockefeller family hold the real "power behind the throne." It claims the main motive of these groups is to set up a New World Order where offshore banks subversively engage in the looting of the wealth of the American people.Aside from that,it also primarily focuses on President Barack Obama and his actions during his young presidency. However, Jones also discusses John F. Kennedy, whom he insinuates was assassinated by these oligarchs for attempting to end the Vietnam War and abolish the Federal Reserve, and labels as the "last true President of the United States". He also discusses George H. W. Bush, and the George W. Bush administration. It claims that Obama has been carefully installed by powerful elite families, and that he serves as a tool for them as he is deliberately working against the best interests of the American people. It discusses and references main stream news pieces to suggest that elite families and multinational institutions utilize Obama in an effort to con the American people into accepting their globalist agenda, which, according to Jones, would include items such as forced national service, warrant- less wiretapping, FEMA camps, martial law, and a Bank of the World, which would dominate America through carbon taxes.In the end,it present the rise of plutocracy in the United States.
Three and a half years after this documentary has been released,we see that our country is getting better.The unemployment rate is coming down, as is the price of gasoline, regulations have been enforced on Wall Street,Obamacare has been passed to provide better access for healthcare insurance for majority of the Americans,the economy is improving,the Obama administration has pressured China with regards to their currency manipulations,the stock market is up,the Iraq War is over and the US troops are going to withdraw from Afghanistan in 2014. President Obama is doing his best to fulfill the promises he has made to the American people when he got elected and apologized for some that he has yet to fulfill but stated that it was not for lack of trying.Former President Bill Clinton even defended the President by saying that no one and not even himself could fix the mess that he inherited from former President George W. Bush in 4 short years.
A viewer must make their own research and realize that one cannot simply accept the right-wing conspiracy theories presented in it.Despite presenting that all presidents after John F.Kennedy regardless whether they are Democrat or Republican just serve as a tool or a puppet for the plutocrats,I still do believe that theory was just used so as not to play the race card and make themselves non-partisan in order to hide the filmmakers' political beliefs.But nevertheless,one must realize that no one is gullible enough to accept the those as facts.One must be intelligent enough to do his own research and readings about the political situation in our country would realize that everything in it is far from the truth.
Skip this documentary and do something else as this is one big mess of a film that it does not have enough substance as it throws away objectivity.But if you hate President Obama and are interested into conspiracy theories,this one is for you.
