Barack Obama says American Alcohoilism is the Cause of Iraq War

June 30th, 2016

According to Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama, American Alcohoilism is the root cause of the Iraq War, soon to be the Iran War. The immense, gluttonous, ridiculous over consumption of oil by the people of the United States of America is the root cause of the Iraq War said Senator Barack Obama of Illinois.

At the time that America went to war in Iraq Senator Barack Obama was a state legislator. He opposed the war in Iraq from the beginning unlike all of the other leading candidates from both parties who voted to go to war in Iraq proving that the color of your skin and long years of experience do not always translate into good foresight and wisdom. Yesterday Barack Obama addressed the DNC Winter Meeting. Here is a part of what Barack Obama said:

“We’ve got 130,000 Americans fighting halfway across the world in a war that should never have been waged, led by leaders who have no plan to end it. The decisions that we make in the next decade will determine the future of our children and the future of our grandchildren. The campaign, our mission is to figure out how we can do some good for this precious country and planet of ours. Our oil dependence is threatening not just our pocketbooks but the safety of our planet.”

Barack Obama blasted President Bush’s new war escalation and budget which asks for the American people to throw another trillion dollars after bad for the war in Iraq. This warmongering by George Bush is bankrupting health care, social security, education and creating a deficit which will lead to the bankruptcy of the country, leading to another great depression or runaway inflation.

The root cause of the Iraq War and the American dependence on other countries for oil is not a lack of domestic oil but an insane over consumption of oil by the people of the United States. This graph is worth a billion words and shows in one glance the amount of oil used every day by every country on the planet earth. Look at it, click on it NOW to understand the root cause of the Iraq War. http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/ene_oil_con-energy-oil-consumption

The people of the United States of America consume 20 million barrels of oil each and every day, far in excess of any other nation on Earth. For the past 5 million years before a hundred years ago our ancestors used zero oil. Russia and India use 2 million barrels of oil per day. Indonesia with nearly the same population as the U.S. uses 1 million barrels of oil per day. Laos and many other countries use 3 thousand barrels of oil per day.

Now look at this chart of exports and production of oil by every country on Earth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chart_of_exports_and_production_of_oil_by_nation This chart shows that Saudi Arabia exports 9 million barrels of oil more per day than it imports. On the other end of the scale the United States the world’s largest polluter by far imports 12 million barrels of oil per day on top of the 5 million barrels per day we produce domestically in the United States. The Iraq desert is capable of producing 2 million barrels of oil per day at a cost of $ 1 per barrel and this is why the United States invaded Iraq, to steal their oil. Every one of the 1.3 billion Muslim people on Earth knows this. The Iraq War and Iran War exit strategy is for the people of the United States of America to over the next year cut back on our ridiculous over consumption of oil to 2 million barrels of oil per day.

Russia and China consider Iran to be their own backyard. They are both going to back Iran just like they backed tiny North Vietnam to defeat the United States, when the United States attacks Iran. Russia and Iran have half of the world’s oil and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Russian President Vladimir Putin just announced their own gas OPEC. Russia, the Soviet Union, the long time enemy of the United States is building the Iranian nuclear reactor in Busheher Iran and the Soviet Union just delivered $ 1 billion worth of advanced surface to air missiles to Iran to protect it.

Yesterday Senator Barack Obama said, “Our oil dependence is threatening not just our pocketbooks but the safety of the planet.” The American dependence upon foreign oil because of our ridiculous over consumption of oil every day caused the Iraq War, is leading to the Iran War and then to nuclear world war 3, the extinction of life one earth in nuclear world war 3 and its aftermath nuclear winter then ultraviolet summer aka Mad, Mutually Assured Destruction. Furthermore the burning by the United States every day of 20 million barrels of oil, the American Alcohoilism is a leading cause of the impending global warming catastrophe when Antarctica, Greenland and the Arctic ice continents melt and the earth’s one Ocean rises permanently 50 feet, permanently submerging the United States under 50 feet of water. The United States is like a codeine addict thinking that the solution to his problems is to break into a drug store and steal the pills.

The real solution to our war and global warming problems is to eliminate our consumption of oil completely. Our ancestors did fine without it for five million years. Why are SUV’s legal? Why isn’t it a law that every American must drive a Smart Car or an electric car or an ethanol car which runs on corn or a fuel cell car which runs on water and emits only water vapor or ride a bicycle? Think of the reduction in oil consumption. Think of the end of the need to colonize the Middle East. Ford Motors is now approaching bankruptcy and Japanese Toyota just reported record sales and profit because of the difference in their cars’ gas mileage. Isn’t it about time that we as American people took the fifth step at Alcohoilics Anonymous and admitted to God, to ourselves and to everyone else the exact nature of our wrongs, that we drank too much oil, and isn’t it about time that we as Americans stopped needlessly drinking so much oil? Our very existence and the continued existence of life on Earth depends upon it said Senator Barack Obama yesterday. It’s just plain common sense. We know how much war costs in dollars and lives lost. How much money will peace save the American taxpayers, who are being taxed out of their minds by the hidden George Bush War Tax, which just went up another trillion dollars yesterday?

Speech Composing For Clinton and Obama

November 19th, 2015

Whom writes the speeches for Clinton and Obama? They give some very convincing speeches that often, are filled up with rhetoric and promises. Is the speech believable towards the hearer? Could it be simply an official means of looking presentable? How do these Presidential applicants redeem themselves with a well-written message when their presidential campaign is in trouble? Well, who really is in big trouble at this time?

Well, in the event that you pay attention to the governmental critics; a few of whom insist that they’re experts, you’ll inform that their reporting is sometimes bias and of no substance because no one knows what’s going to happen in democratic battle. It would likely look obvious for John McCain, not for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. I do maybe not presume become a political analyst, but i will be making time for both governmental race, but because I am a writer, I have a pastime in speeches that present. Being a Public Speaker requires a certain personality, presentation and aura. I think its training which makes one become better at giving a speech.

But think about the person who sits into the background composing these speeches? I am certain that you don’t believe Clinton, Obama, Huckabee and McCain are writing their own speeches, do you? The message author doesn’t enough credit since the governmental prospects prefer to allow you to genuinely believe that they write their own speeches, but that is the furthest through the truth.

I am sure if they had time, they could write a speech of top quality. But time constraints don’t allow either the republican or democratic governmental prospect to take a seat and compose an excellent message. Even President Bush has a speech author. If some body does not compose these speeches, these governmental numbers will stumble over their terms and will be removed searching like idiots. Therefore kudos towards the speech writers whom laboriously develop flawless terms, expressions, and sentences which make these public numbers look good.

Who hires these message authors? I’d want to be a part of that group of insiders whom understand how much their service is needed. I would personally love to watch them work and study from them. We bet you wouldn’t. However, because we, too, am a journalist, I would love the opportunity to stay with beaming pride and tune in to the language that I published coming from the lips of such popular political prospects like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mike Huckabee, President Bush and John McCain.

I do not think these message article writers will ever get credit for his or her efforts and I am not sure if which an excellent or bad thing. I do believe it may be OK to allow them to sit in back ground watching everything unfold and realize that in some manner, they have contributed to history. I suppose its okay. Would not you state?

Obama vs Bill – the normal Ground

November 6th, 2015

Tonight, Obama routed the Billary Machine (better than the ‘HillBilly Machine’ favored by my fellow progressive blogosphere) into the S.C. Primary across all racial lines; gender lines; religious lines; age lines; economic lines, as well as the Mason-Dixon Line. Slick Willie shot right back that Jesse Jackson two times won the S.C. Primary. I agree with Bill but Al Sharpton hasn’t won the S.C. Primary. Hence, we could hypothesize that Obama transcends the ‘Black Candidate’ label.

I have received ‘feedbacks’ from peers (monochrome) that it’s superficial or even shortsighted for my bet on Obama over Billary. They reminded me regarding the ‘civil legal rights’ legacy of Billary – “is not Bill initial Black President and doesn’t he live in Harlem?” (really, Bill tried to get an office in Lower Manhattan but a Republican Congress cried in regards to the cost; he retreated to Harlem for great impact). I admired Billary with regards to their share to the united states of america (including to Blacks) and its particular share toward world (a surplus of goodwill became a deficit of said goodwill by the Bush Regime, er, management). However, we are in need ofn’t look further than the vaunted Churchill who was voted from workplace by a post-WWII British electorate. C’mon, Churchill’s deeds and WWII leadership should’ve made him a “prime minister forever.” On contrary, the Uk people wanted a fresh face and a brand new sound to lead them into a post-WWII future. “Were the British voters ungrateful with their victorious leader?” No, they wanted a ‘change.’

On a side note, i actually do maybe not need to shortchange Hillary’s qualifications and self-reliance. However, Hillary and Bill considering that the late eighties ran as Co-Presidents (“two for the price of one” mantra). Like, Obama is fighting a tag/double team (one against two) of Clintons in the place of Hillary by the woman lonesome. Is it reasonable? Well, placing terms in Billary’s mouth, “let us get real…life is not a fairytale!”

Let us explore the normal ground of Obama and Bill. Both were raised by strong, single moms (with the aid of a step-father at some time). In Bill’s (William Jefferson Blythe III’s) situation, he destroyed their biological dad, William Jefferson Blythe II, 3 months before his delivery. In turn, Obama’s dad relocated to Harvard University before returning to Kenya. As a male, I have to point out the respective fathers’ contributions for their sons’ ultimate success. Bill’s dad handed down their hereditary skills of a traveling salesman to their son.

In Obama Jr.’s instance, a former U.S. congressman (a classmate and a longtime buddy regarding the late Obama Sr.) reported in the similarities between father and son. Let’s not forget your Marxist Kenyatta national (where he was hired as a senior economist only to be fired because he’dn’t accompany its rampant corruption) desired the late Obama Sr. to own attended Moscow University within the Soviet Union. Luckily for all of us, he elected an American university. If you don’t, America would’ve lost a well liked son and Russia would’ve gained another Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin.

Note: Obama won Nevada into the delegate count….

Obama Hope Beating Clinton Help

November 4th, 2015

Hope mongering has been working superior to experience mongering. Now, other tale….

As befits US culture, politics is about slick attempting to sell toward masses. Hillary Clinton is selling Day-1 help to victims and sufferers. Barack Obama is attempting to sell effervescent desire to yes-we-can dreamers. This media hyped horse race is much like a fight between diet Coke and diet Pepsi, artificially sweetened prospects without genuine nourishment.

Minimal educated, minimum advanced and least wealthy and Hispanics are sipping Clinton’s fizzled-out drink. Probably the most educated, many privileged, & most economically effective along with African-Americans are gulping down Obama’s charismatic pick-me-up.

As to that is purchasing just what, evaluate these information: Clinton won the non-college-educated voters by 22 points in California, 32 points in Massachusetts, 54 points in Arkansas, and 11 points in nj-new jersey. In a Pew analysis nationwide survey, Obama led among people with university levels by 22 points. In Connecticut, Obama overcome Clinton among college graduates by 17 points plus in nj by 11 points. And note this: 39 percent of Virginia and 41 per cent of Maryland Democratic primary voters reported incomes of $ 100,000 or more – obviously well educated individuals who would favor Obama.

A simplistic conclusion is the fact that dumber you’re the much more likely you prefer the initial woman president as you believe this experience-selling status quo, business prospect. And the smarter you are the much more likely you prefer the initial black colored president because you accept the change-promises and platitudes from more authentic, inspirational prospect with all the brief resume. Clinton supporters appreciate the 10-point-plan-for-every-problem governmental pragmatist. Obamatons swoon throughout the big-picture, unity-promising political messiah.

Working-class Clinton supporters are love weary shoppers seeking decent meals at low prices at Safeway and good coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts. Obama yes-we-can-happy-facers happily pay excessive charges for your whole Foods experience and Starbucks shtick.

Here are a few realities that neither team desires to face:

Both candidates are establishment insiders.

Both are corporate-state politicians. Keep in mind that Robert Wolf, the CEO of UBS Americas, a significant banking business, has raised more than $ 1 million the Obama campaign. Large sourced elements of Obama money are law firms, investment homes, and real-estate organizations, and 80 per cent of his donors are associated with business, in comparison to 85 percent for Clinton.

Neither are real progressives or populists, like Kucinich and Edwards.

Both Clinton the fighter and Obama the talker will sell away when they confront presidential realities. Why? Because plutocracies understand how to retain power UPON elections. After 2 yrs it’s going to be clear your brand new president will have failed to extract the united states from Iraq, could have neglected to deliver universal health care, may have didn’t deal with unlawful immigration, may have done nothing to get a fresh and serious 9/11 research, will have done absolutely nothing to stop middle-class-killing globalisation, and certainly will have utterly disappointed most Us citizens. The president’s most pressing priorities will soon be reducing objectives and getting reelected, despite raising taxes. The only real people really astonished at all this will be those lacking just what the Greeks idea is a virtue: cynicism.

Finally, for anyone searching for serious governmental system reforms, its troubling that neither Clinton nor, especially, Obama have the courage to advocate needed constitutional amendments, such as replacing the Electoral university aided by the popular vote for president, getting all personal cash from politics, making universal health care the right, and preventing presidential signing statements that undermine regulations.

Realizing that Congress is not likely to propose such amendments, these candidates could advocate using, for the first time, exactly what the Founders provided united states in Article V: a convention of state delegates which could propose amendments, as described at http://www.foavc.org. If Abraham Lincoln and Dwight D. Eisenhower could support utilizing the convention choice, definitely Day-1-Clinton and new-direction-Obama should.

Did Obama Do His Homework?

October 31st, 2015

If you listened to Barack Obama’s description of their relationship with his former? minister, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, you had been most likely impressed incidentally he managed the podium and spoke so eloquently. You’ve probably been used by their terms, especially when he started his speech with “We the individuals.” If he previously done his homework and reviewed the Black motion over the last forty-five years, he should have stated, You the folks. [My italics] Why? Since the self-anointed, movers and shakers of the Black Movement, like Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, cannot may actually want to be element of “We individuals.” Their rhetoric and hypocrisy have actually held the racial divide as wide once the Grand Canyon.

Some Blacks appear to wish to be segregated. They celebrate the Ebony skip America Contest, and Black Movie Awards; they will have unique magazines, Jet and Ebony and a host of other Black-only functions. They have their own schools. Just how many white attorneys do you know that have graduated from Howard University?

Basically began a skip White America Pageant or published a magazine called The Caucasian, the press, Reverends Jackson and Sharpton, and everybody else in the movement might have a battery pack of solicitors with restraining sales within my home in mins. Then their lawsuits would follow close behind.

When is Ebony America planning to start taking obligation for itself? If Dr. Martin Luther King had been alive today, do you think that Jackson and Sharpton could have the energy they’ve? Dr. King preached to pull your self up by the bootstraps and work out something of your self. In the event that you wait for the government, you’ll die waiting.

Throughout the 2004 Presidential competition, Senators Kerry and Edwards, cried away, “Help is in route!” Look right back at a few of the great black leaders in the united states whom couldn’t wait for federal government help and entitlements and did it on their own-Sen. Obama and their wife Michele included. Why is he advocating exactly how White America and also the government have unsuccessful the Blacks. He knows just how to pull himself up. Then lead by example.

The self-anointed leaders’ like Jackson and Sharpton’s rhetoric, assists in maintaining the racial issue inside limelight. They’ve also enlisted the help of the media in their quest. They would like to keep racial dilemmas in the vanguard even if they cannot exist. I believe the press helps you to stir up a hornet’s nest every time they have one thing to report. They select and twist things from context to match their agenda, particularly when it comes down to race-relations.

Why don’t we look back to 1997, when professional golfer Tiger Woods won the Masters Tournament.

For anybody that are not really acquainted with the tournament that occurs yearly, the prior 12 months’s champion hosts a champ’s supper the current winner. The host can be the person who chooses the menu.

At the end associated with the tournament Fuzzy Zoeller, an other professional golfer, was interviewed about Tiger’s victory. When asked for his viewpoint by the press, about Tiger, Zoeller stated, “That small child is driving well and he’s placing well. He is doing every thing it requires to win. Consequently, you know what you people do when he gets in here. You pat him on straight back, say congratulations, appreciate it, and make sure he understands not to serve fried chicken next year…”

The press had an industry day. It got so beyond control that Fuzzy Zoeller destroyed his sponsor. He was expected by the press to help make a public apology. Also Oprah got into the fray. Yet everybody regarding professional trip understands exactly what a jokester he is.

If padraig harrington were Italian and Zoeller stated next year tell him not to ever serve meatballs and spaghetti, or if he had been Jewish in which he stated it seems like bagels and lox for dinner, the press might have laughed along side him. However, their agenda raised its ugly mind, so that they went ahead and made it racial. Did anyone get harmed except Fuzzy? Ended up being the remark racial? I really do maybe not think it was. Every ethnic team has their very own nutritional pleasures so we make fun of those on a regular basis, without harm. How does the press constantly appear to exacerbate the situation? Whenever they intentionally make something racial from a situation, they move the Civil Rights motion backward by helping incite the motion’s leaders.

On March 21, 2008, during a speaking engagement, Barrack Obama said-“after plenty stops in the campaign and eating countless fried chicken dinners-Don’t you simply miss those chicken dinners?” Duh!

When Alex Haley’s book “Roots” aired as a mini-series on TV, it introduced a double-edge blade. First, it taken to the forefront the problems during slavery. The next and negative occasion it caused had been a movement that Blacks embraced, which said, we should go back to our African origins. Suddenly kiddies received African tribal names. Some educators were dressing in tribal garments. Because of this, they find it too difficult applying for employment whenever their new names resemble Kawani Lumumba Jones [Pseudonym] or they appear for interviews in a long robe and sandals. Yes, prejudice to some degree nevertheless survives in the us today. However, it is being exacerbated with what seems to be a Black agenda.

Therefore, in retrospect, Obama missed the mark and, in this, missed the message. He did similar in Ohio when he proclaimed that if elected, he can renegotiate NAFTA to create back the jobs to Ohio. How about the NAFTA created jobs inside sleep of America, will they be lost? If he wished to be honest, he would have stated, “NAFTA is wonderful for America. Often it may hurt some area of the nation, however, in big picture, it is good for the united states. It is up to you to move where the jobs are.”

When Toyota and Honda launched their flowers in Tennessee, these were hiring by the thousands. Just how many unemployed workers in Detroit relocated? There clearly was a Japanese proverb that says, “A wise willow bends within the wind.”

Senator Obama ended up being among the first to demand the dismissal of Don Imus, however, perhaps not of Reverend Wright. All Imus did was insult a basketball team-Wright insulted America. Do I hear the phrase hypocrite?

Therefore, it seems in my experience that Obama missed the mark. Men and women have to learn to simply help by themselves, not wait in line for entitlements.

I can picture Dr. King looking down from Heaven, viewing Obama talk. He’s pursing his lips and shaking their head laterally.

Michael Solomon is a previous NYPD Detective. He’s the recipient of 19 prizes for Excellent and Meritorious police work. During his tenure within the cleverness unit, he was assigned to safeguard the Shah of Iran, and Madame Chang of Taiwan. He’s got actually met four U.S. Presidents. He had been assigned as the intelligence officer on U.S. State Department during treaty negations between your United States and Turkey. He holds a Bachelors Degree Magna Cum Laude in Behavioral Sciences, from New York Institute of Technology and a Masters with Distinction in public places management from longer Island University.

In 2003, he had been cited by both homes regarding the NY State Legislature in a Resolutions as Humanitarian of the season for their charitable contributions to their community. – He has published two publications. “Triumph By Default”, – The Depersonalization Of Corporate America. His 2nd book “in which Did My America Go?” explores the hypocrisy in United states politics. – he’s been the subject of numerous magazine and news articles. In 2006, he had been named as Time Magazines “Person of the season.”

Barack Obama – His Qualifications

September 28th, 2015

Much is said about our Democratic prospect for president. He’s got achieved stone celebrity status. As a result of their silver tongue, numerous check him as an individual who can “save yourself” united states from ourselves.

I learned many years ago whenever one thing appears too good to be real, it most likely is.

After doing much research, i’ve discovered out a great deal about Obama. There clearly was lots of fluff on the Internet, much of that will ben’t true. However If one checks the best resources and double checks against other information, one can be reasonably certain to have arrived at the correct conclusions.

As I have written in other blogs, Obama is a Muslim, irrespective as to the way they make an effort to spin it, he had been born of a Muslim dad, Muslim legislation states that when your father is a Muslim, you are a Muslim. No quantity of converting can change that. Their title which can be exactly like his fathers, is Arabic,

Junior’s very first name Barack, is a deviation of Barak, the title for the horse that Mohammad rode into paradise.

Obama has many, numerous number of years ties towards the Islam world, his Harvard education ended up being financed, at the very least in part by a prominent member of the Arab world, (they recruited Barack years ago), this same person has ties to the Saudi prince, Oh mar Qaddafi, and every prominent Arab and radical frontrunner in the world. The Muslims have added huge amounts of dollars to the US Universities and Colleges, including Columbia. Any wonder that the Iran leader had been permitted to talk here?

Utilizing the power these influential folks have, can you conceive the consequences of experiencing someone into the White House that’s sympathetic to their goals of world domination? They have been attacking us from within with no one realizes it!

They own many of our finance institutions, including Citigroup. Throughout the last decades much cash has been sent to the Middle East to shop for oil we is drilling for right in the us. This cash has subsequently been spent buying united states out. As a result of this, many influential individuals inside country are under their thumb.

His associations consist of terrorists, extremists, and several individuals who dislike America very well. He has a problem putting on a flag lapel pin, standing at attention through the playing of our nationwide Anthem, has stated there are 57 states, (he’ll know where Alaska is before this might be over.) Does not know the difference between Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day, flipped down Hillary on live television, called Sarah Palin a pig, (he knew what he was saying), and referred to their Muslim faith on a Sunday early morning talk show.

Generally he spent a lot of time growing up in Indonesia, so he’s no concept of exactly what the American culture is about.

I haven’t confirmed this, but have every explanation to believe, along with his back ground and also the history of the folks he associates with, the FBI wouldn’t accept him as a real estate agent.

If the FBI wouldn’t employ him, should we?

I have traversed the globe looking for truth, my truth, to see a few of my views :

Obama, Palin Like Milli Vanilli

September 17th, 2015

“movie Killed the Radio Star” made history in 1981 by becoming initial music video ever to air on MTV. Little could somebody have imagined at the time that the “design over substance” MTV generation would be in charge of killing one thing far more important: the qualified presidential candidate.

It absolutely wasn’t very long after Music tv’s first that musical capability while the capacity to really sing on key, or sing anyway without lip-syncing for that matter, had become unimportant. Talent became replaceable by image and visual looks. Twenty-seven years later, that concept has filtered its method as much as optimum location: work of the President for the usa.

No presidential tickets have ever been host to applicants with as couple of skills as Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. Obama ended up being a first-term U.S. Senator with two-years of expertise under his gear with no verifiable legislative accomplishments to discuss about it when he arrived roaring on the presidential campaign trail in 2006. Sarah Palin just isn’t quite two-years into the woman first-term as Governor of Alaska, having formerly served six-years as mayor of a town of 6,300. In MTV speak Obama could be the Milli to Palin’s Vanilli.

The 2 extremely qualified candidates regarding the bill are naturally John McCain and Joe Biden. Similar to the aging process but nevertheless really skilled stone stars who no further have the cache to fill the arenas, both were in need of more appropriate opening functions. Biden, a U.S. Senator since 1972 who got blasted out of the 2008 Democratic primaries in the beginning, was tabbed by the image-centric, success challenged Obama. The charisma and youth deficient McCain, in desperate need of some flash and sizzle, selected Palin.

Of course not every musical organization and singer that has “the appearance” for MTV ended up being without musical merit. That Whitney Houston certain had some pipes. The authorities became a legendary group. And there have been a great amount of other people. The question is whether a graphic shows to own substance. For every Whitney and Sting there’s a Britney and a Vanilla Ice. Not to mention a periodic Weird Al Yankovic.

Exactly what Obama and Palin result in have under the facades stays become seen. And I suspect why these two won’t be the final of presidential prospects that we will wonder these things about. As soon as a procedure becomes exactly about image its nearly impossible to reverse. Whenever ended up being the last time you saw a talented but mainly ugly new musical work climbing the charts? Me neither.

It is fairly common knowledge that the aforementioned track by The Buggles was the first to air on MTV. Yet not many individuals can name the next. It absolutely was called “You Better Run”. Given that’s ironic. Somebody better inform Alanis Morissettte.

Of Course Europeans Love Obama

June 23rd, 2015

My husband is those types of many unaffiliated voters whoever allegiance we McCain and Obama supporters have now been vigilantly seeking after these many months. Yet also my husband ended up being aghast when he first entertained several minutes of CNN’s news delivery in Germany earlier this week. During our trip overseas, we had been subjected to our typical overdose of CNN, the sole English-speaking news system we have been ever capable locate on tv beyond your united states of america. Once we experimented with stay up to speed aided by the news associated with the day while away from home we had been similarly appalled by the egregious number of recommendations for Senator Obama throughout the network’s news distribution. Indeed, i came across it difficult to refer to their portions as “news,” at all.

During one conversation with a well-educated young German man, I happened to be expected whom we in the offing to vote for within the U.S. Presidential Election. My reply ended up being simply, “John McCain.” Their eyes lifted and their swung back with shock. He had obviously expected my response to be otherwise. We countered the question, asking whom he’d vote for had been he an American resident. He invariably responded, “Barack Obama.” I asked exactly what it had been about Senator Obama he liked. He explained that it seemed reasonable to support Barack Obama due to the fact news did actually think about him a better fit. The next addition to their reasoning ended up being, for me personally, therefore traumatic that I could almost hear the screeching of automobile tires in my mind. He added that after watching the United states Video Music Awards it appeared as though many Us citizens preferred the Senator from Illinois. When I regained my composure I first addressed the matter of Brittany Spears having anything whatsoever related to sound political choice making. I explained, with all the passion that i really could muster, just how precious little our American counterparts in Hollywood represented the typical American. In order to save you, your reader, from an overemphasis regarding the stupidity of famous people, one thing i am certain you are already aware, i am going to spare you the important points of this portion of the conversation. We accompanied my response to the VMA’s with conversation concerning the news’s part into the election. Once we discussed the matter, I told him exactly how little the Europeans have been receiving in the form of balanced press coverage regarding the two applicants. He appeared to appreciate the idea though i’m perhaps not completely certain he believed it.

Become clear, i’m not concerned about whether my German buddy would vote for John McCain in a presidential election. He’s, in the end, no more American than i will be German but it did explain much regarding the favor Senator Obama happens to be getting abroad. Indeed, a soviet style dictator nevertheless rules throughout the little nation of Belarus. Alexandr Lukashenka has moved his nation backward eventually, in his tireless crusade the Communism of old. The folks are oppressed and information regarding the outside is assaulted more aggressively with every passing day. Yet many Belarusians consider Lukashenko good frontrunner by virtue of this manner in which the Belarusian, definately not free, news extol him every day. Truly, Western Europeans have far greater usage of external information as compared to their Belarusian counterparts but it needs to be understand by Americans at house, your European media just isn’t free and delivery of news is not balanced. It is wrought with viewpoint and littered with bias. With foreign enemies who look for to influence our elections and foreign friends whoever info is tainted, we should guard ourselves against concern for the planet’s viewpoint about our presidential selection.

We have been bound using the duty to help make decisions in America’s best interest and her most readily useful interest alone. So when it is all said and done, provided their track record, I am not totally certain we should be taking our advice from European countries anyhow.

For Obama, A Question of Judgment

June 5th, 2015

For quite a while, People in america have actually imagined having a “common man” in White House, some one just like them. It absolutely was a dream that never found fruition mainly because of the logistics of operating for the high workplace along with the price tag. Further, the intense scrutiny of vetting procedure is prohibitive to many typical guys since, therefore, they once again have actually small resources to afford to full cover up the skeletons we all have actually. Just what occurred to Joe the Plumber should serve as a prime example.

What we have, but is the next smartest thing, dependent on a person’s perspective. Barack Obama may be the president-elect, and while he’s definately not being a commoner, he does absence experience and is consequently an empty canvass. His claims of change and hope have previously begun to yellow around the edges, however, as he starts to build his case; a lot of the bricks are employed.

Besides the obvious problem this causes, that being the erasure regarding the vow, it is not always a bad thing since the neophyte will need to encircle himself with people that are familiar with the process, people who have experience. The key is to pick people who have good experience, though, and not someone who simply happened to possess performed in the same part when prior to.

Eric Holder ended up being assistant Attorney General within the Clinton administration, so yes, he has experience, but what was the type plus the upshot of that experience? The pardon of Marc deep straight away pops into the mind.

Breitbart news has discovered a video of hearings regarding the Rich pardon from 2001, in which Eric Holder is grilled by Congressman Bob Barr. During that testimony, Barr asked Holder if he made a recommendation towards the president regarding the Rich pardon, that he said which he made the recommendation on White home Counsel. When Barr asked in the event that White home Counsel asked for the president, Holder stated that he didn’t “know the method here”.

An incredulous Barr then asked, “you do not know very well what the procedure is there?” It would appear that an assistant attorney general should be aware who the White House Counsel reports to, you might think. However the spouse of the issue with Holder is their involvement using the pardon it self.

This new York instances on Saturday was type enough to produce a neat small synopsis of why the Rich case is significant at all. (Emphasis my own).

Only a little history first. In 1983, Marc deep ended up being indicted together with his partner, Pincus Green, and their companies on 65 counts of defrauding the I.R.S., mail fraud, taxation evasion, racketeering, defrauding the Treasury and trading using the enemy. (the past of the ended up being for an oil deal with Iran whilst it held United states hostages.) On hearing they were going to be prosecuted, they fled to Switzerland. For the following 17 years, Mr. deep ducked extradition needs along with efforts by federal marshals to arrest him in France, England, Finland and elsewhere.

Going back to the testimony of 2001, Holder told Barr that, concerning the pardon of deep, he had been “neutral, tilting toward favorable”, despite his or her own prosecutors vigorously pursuing the truth against Rich. This also triggered Barr severe perplexity.

The president-elect might need to surround himself with experienced people, but it is not the best way to begin.
