This week, the fight is clear: It’s the globalists against the American people. And the globalists include both parties.
Here’s something that I wish someone would point out: Obama, and his democrats are just as involved and working for the Fed and Wall Street as the Republicans, and nobody ever, ever, ever brings this up.
As you see in the above video, the President of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein (How’s THAT for a Wall Street name?) basically blames the whole dysfunction of the government on the tea party. No, he doesn’t say tea party, but he accuses them of wanting to default, and destroy the world. So does Christine Legarde of the IMF.
“But we say slow down because the point is not to contract the economy by slashing spending brutally now as recovery is picking up.”
What? It’s only picking up on Wall Street, because since the 2008 crash, the men on Wall Street have tripled their investments, thanks to the poor guy on mainstreet.
Nevertheless….here’s a top Wall Street King, who is fighting on the side of ‘President’ Obama, John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and Harry Reid. They are complaining about the “people’ trying to hold on to whatever power they can. Now, normal, family-loving, country-loving, conservative people are considered radicals by the globalists. We…are the enemy.
One thing that is good coming out of all of this fight in Washington is now we are seeing very clearly, who the American people’s enemies actually are, and they are many.
To me, it’s much simpler: There are the globalists, who are basically fascists and could care less about the American people, and then there are the politicians who really care about America.
That’s why they hate Ted Cruz. Basically, with the help of only a few people, he has singlehandedly brought the American people back to the table of Congress…and Congress doesn’t like it one bit.
Boehner is in a hard place. If he gives into Obama, the Republican party is gone. The reason John McCain and Romney lost is because they weren’t Conservatives. If they run Jeb Bush, he will lose. There are simply not enough ‘independents’ to vote them in.
People will be hurting so badly with Obamacare they will blame the Republicans for not getting rid of it….so, he has to depend on the Senate to do all the dealing, and that’s Mitch.
Fareed Zakaria’s essay today was all about how Obama missed the all important meeting in Asia all because of the tea party people, and therefore China got all the big money deals. All I’ve heard from the CEO’s on TV and all the democratic pundits for decades is, ‘Why oh why can’t we be like China?”
Frankly, I wish every S-n of a &$^$& I’ve heard say that, would get off my TV and go live there.
Nobody Thinks—our big multinational companies which own our Congress…want Obamacare, and they want a strong leader at the top, who they can control, so they can compete with China. Congress is just messing up their day. It’s time consuming, and they have to WAIT whenever they have a request.
Who does Obama work for? He works for men like Lloyd Blankfein, and George Soros. And so did George W. Bush. And yet, every Wall Street Occupy gooney thinks all of Wall Street works for Republicans.
We did not need to bail out Wall Street. Even the liberal Vanity Fair admits huge crimes were committed by the bankers. Those people should lhave spent years in jail…where they could have gotten along very well with two other criminals who helped set that whole housing bubble up: Barney Frank and Bill Clinton. The stimulus money was stolen from the American people.
There is no money in Social Security now…just IOU’s. When the fines start rolling in from Obamacare, you can bet, all that money will be used for some other reason.
Why should anything be different? They just want more money. And as Margaret Thatcher once said, “The trouble with socialism is, sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.”
And that’s what happened in Poland. Just recently, Poland went into their own people’s pension accounts and stole half of their people’s retirement money. Obama has his eye on that option. And maybe this whole debt ceiling thing would give him just enough chaos for him to pull it off.
China, is already chopping at the bit, not because of the tea party, but because Obama is President. China said this at their Asian summit.
“As US politicians of both political parties are still shuffling back and forth between the White House and the Capitol Hill without striking a viable deal to bring normality to the body politic they brag about, it is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanised world,”
Rush Limbaugh came to the conclusion today, that nobody will ever blame Obama for anything in history because…he doesn’t lead, therefore, because he doesn’t really lead, but stays in campaign mode, everybody likes all his empty promises, because they sound so….lofty.
What I think Rush has missed, is that after eight years of Bubba and his darling wife, we would have voted for any change. I fell into George’s W. Bush’s words of hope, just as fast as a man dying of thirst runs to the nearest bottle of water. When he was campaigning, George W. said ALL the right things. Rubio sounds just like the old George W. We were looking for a hero, and he was there.
And then…well, watch this video. Many conservatives can whine and say that Freddie and Fannie were pushed into putting out bad loans by Barney Frank (and they were) BUT…George W. was right up there making the case for the loans that caused the housing debacle, and this video proves it.
And then…he did the first bail out. So, many conservatives feel, that if George W. had not strayed so far from his conservative principles, Obama would not have been elected. I have my own Nobody Opinions on the whole matter myself…which leans towards what many would call a conspiracy theory: At the top we have one party, with the powerful from both sides, who are working for the same goals.
And that goal is globalization. In globalization there are no borders….
Nobody Wins when a plutocracy rules, and that’s what we have. The men and women that have the REAL control are all millionaires and billionares. Dr. Corsi concluded that these people want the ruling class at the very top to reap the fruits of capitalism, while the masses are ruled in communism. Why do you think they all speak so highly of China? The fortunes of the top 500 companies make more than most nations. We are nearer to the Minority Report than we think.
It’s the Third Way of Bill Clinton. It’s the New World Order of Daddy Bush. It’s the Globalization of George W. Bush, but it’s always business as usual: Follow the money.
And that’s why the top people of both parties will make sure that the “people” are never represented again..
Have you SEEN the self-portrait that X-President George W. Bush painted of himself? Well, some guy who calls himself Guccifer hacked into the Bush’s emails and found these two very interesting self-portraits. Obviously, the President…is trying to tell future historians that either (1. He can’t take enough baths to cleanse himself of all his sins, or (2 He wants to be the first President to show that no matter how powerful one man becomes, he still has to take a bath. (3…The parts he most admires about himself are his back and feet or (4. He wants Laura to know how very lonely he is. And if you have read me, I have said before, I don’t think Laura and Bush live together anymore. Just like the Clinton’s, they do their events together, act all lovey, and then go their separate ways. But unlike Bill Clinton, George W. is miserable without Laura. I could be very wrong…but…
While many people admire his painting ability, I find it almost…sad.
But that’s just me. On the other hand, we can all compare it to Picasso’s self-portrait…(One that is NOT pornographic, because Picasso did a lot of those.) and I think I would prefer the bathtub, if I had to pick one to hang on my wall…how about you?
____How long ago the globalists elite had big plans to make America a bi-lingural country? But…it was George W. Bush who put it in place. Obama here is very clevely trying to make us feel stupid because we don’t speak two languages. He knows what’s coming, even before he was President. Why else do you think our govenment have let so many illegals into our country?
What a better place to announce the continuing plans for amnesty than Las Vegas? Obama was so sure of Congress putting through legislation that he likes, he decided to make a trip to the city with the most promising numbers of union hotel workers. Who are mostly Hispanic..
Nobody Thinks somewhere tonight, the Bush family is finally happy. After all, it was President George W. Bush that came up with the great plan to make us one big North American Continent.
Obviously, if you have memory longer than your five year old…you will remember that our government has been promoting the North American One Continent fits all…all the time working for a big increase in a younger population to support the older one that is dying…they just denied it—all the elites at the top.
First came Nafta…Than all the other ‘afta’s ” after that. They told us it would bring American’s jobs.
It didn’t. We got the biggest Hispanic invasion in history…and that was the plan. The real plan for all the last four Presidents was how to get some cheap labor pouring into this country to kept it afloat. So they thought up the Nafta Superhighway. Starts in Mexico…(where China unloads its stuff) than goes through Texas and up through Canada.
You didn’t hear Obama say a word about that did you? But today, was the final seal for every single Hispanic that can latch a ride on a truck to come up, along with the rest of his family and his gay friends too.They don’t need to pass any laws. It’s all a big put-on. When the Republicans complain that it’s because the democrats just want the votes…it’s a lie.
BOTH parties want this. It assures their very survival.
As you can imagine, Texas was pretty mad about the Nafta highway, because Spain was going to build it, and get all the money off it’s taxes. I wrote about this when Bush was President. We were told, that Rick Perry stopped the plans.
Nope…he just said he did. He lied. As they all do. Now they lie right to our faces.
Despite Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s pledge in 2009 to end the Trans-Texas Corridor project with a Spanish-owned construction company, the bureaucrats at the Texas Department of Transportation figured out a way to keep it alive. Soon, Americans will have to pay tolls to foreign companies to drive on roads in their own country … Very quietly, Gov. Rick Perry and the Texas Department of Transportation, or TxDOT, signed in October a comprehensive development agreement to construct a toll-road redevelopment of Interstate 35 north of downtown Fort Worth. the Trans-Texas Corridor project, a 4,000-mile network of privately built and operated toll roads to crisscross the state, with Spanish development company Cintra scheduled to earn the tolls under 50-year leases. It’s four football fields wide, through the heart of Texas, parallel to Interstate 35, from the Mexican border at Laredo, Texas, to the Texas border with Oklahoma;
So…watch that highway go up REAL fast now. It’s time…as Obama said..for the rest of the invasion.
The only time they will have to speak any English is if they run for office and work in Congress.
It’s a done deal. It was the plan all along for years.
After all..their children won’t have to ever worry again.
Ours…will have to learn how to…as Obama said: Speak Spanish.
Nobody Gets Email.
This might not be a very pleasant way to spend your Sunday, but in all the video’s of the last year that I’ve watched…in THIS video– Dr. Corsi comes the closest to explain, what in my Nobody’s Opinion…is about as close to the truth of our government as any other.
Remember …it was George W. Bush that was pushing full force with globalization…which in all reality, is a very bad deal for the regular American citizen. You and I, in this very well planned ‘merging’ of America with the rest of the world, will see our country disappear.
If you think this guy is NUTS because he is talking to Alex Jones, try to remember that there are very few outlets that are trying to make sense of the daily, almost unbelievable un-Constitutional laws being past by our Congress, and supported by our Supreme Court. …with not much resistance. Amnesty will be coming fast, as you may well recall, supported fully by the Bush’s. The idea that American corporations can conquer the world is one supported by both parties, and Wal-Mart, which has a habit of putting the First Ladies on their boards, is a prime example of the global plans.
Jeffery Immelt, (CEO of GE) and many of our top CEO’s have expressed their admiration for how things are run in China— Capitalism at the top (so a few have power and great wealth) and communism at the bottom. This is what they want to happen in America.
As Dr. Corsi explains…that’s the plan. And they must disarm us first.
It’s pretty disgusting how much Ed Randall relished carnage of Sandy Hook— isn’t it? Keep that in mind for a few minutes:
The other night on Coast to Coast, a man suggested something that I had told myself to dismiss, about the Sandy Hook Killings. Right when the shooting had first came on the news…it was reported that the police had captured a man in the woods nearby…he had a gun., and he was camolflouged…and then they didn’t say much more…execept, they let him go. I remember hearing it and thinking that it might have been the shooter because it was just about five minutes after it was reported. The radio host suggested that man might have been the shooter, set up by the government, to of course, start the horrible slaughter that would give Obama what he needed to pass gun control laws.
Nobody has mentioned this guy since, or even explained who he was, why he wasn’t suspected, and why he was let go instantly. Seems to me, you or I would have been held for hours if we had even been in the area.
Now…NO one could imagine a President even doing such a thing—- Arranging an event to facilitate an agenda. It would be unthinkable, right? Obama, as much as many of us abhor him, would never do such a thing.
Or would he? Two things…the area was in a predominantly white democratic settings…the horror was overkill. Before you dismiss any kind of conspiracy theory, remember, a man much like Obama..once beloved and trusted by his country, threw millions of people into ovens. How did he do that? He told them they were being ‘relocated,’ even assuring them before they were gassed that everyone would be just fine.
Hitler burned down a building (the Reichstag) and blamed his enemies to “facilitate” his own rise to power. Men HAVE done this kind of stuff before. It’s not always a conspiracy to suspect it. Which leads me to the first report.
The question is: How much do we trust our government? Was the recent election fraud just enough to keep Obama in power? Doesn’t Obama lie to us daily? Remember he swore when he was trying to sell Obamacare that it was the Affordable Care Act and everyone would be saving money? Didn’t he swear we could keep our own doctors? Didn’t he run on the fact that he would never, ever tax the middle class? Hasn’t the middle class just been hit with a big tax increase? Tell me, DO you trust this man?
And this brings me to the first report. Do you always believe the “first report” of anything?
I have written before about this “first report” that I have been noticing for quite some time now.
First Report on 9/11: I remember a Fire Chief standing in front of one of the towers right after it had been hit, and telling the camera that there had been bombs detonated below the fifth floor. This was after the first plane had hit the first building — before either tower collapsed. Never heard that report again.
First Report: The night JFK Jr. plane was lost, there were at least three witnessed that heard a very loud canons go off,…these people were convinced, that the plane was shot down.Never heard that report again.
First Report: The night Princess Diana died, about two witnesses saw a car drive off…from the tunnel. And the fact that it took over 4 HOURS for a doctor to get to the scene has never been condemned by any news outlet anywhere.
First Report: Flight 800 was shot down by a missile from the ground. Over twenty people witnessed it, including two pilots—but Bill Clinton dismissed it. And in every serious event that shapes our lives…the first reports are always lost to the first few minutes of the event….and you never hear why.
Okay…you get the idea. I am home most of the day, and always have the TV on, or radio, and I have always found these first reports upsetting, because these witnesses just…disappear. We all know that two people can witness a crime, and both see something different, and you could say that the first reports are ALWAYS wrong. But…are they?
After giving it much thought, Nobody Thinks the first reports are usually the most trustworthy ones before the government comes in and spins the story. Just today, Robert Kennedy’s son said that his dad was convinced that Oswald was not the lone shooter. He thought the Warren Commission did a hack job. And THIS after Stephen King wrote a book about it, swearing that Oswald acted alone.
And Molovtov Mitchell, in his last “For the Record” points out to everyone, that at Sandy Hook, the assault rifle was…not used. He pretty much proves it, but nobody is talking about it. Nope. It’s those nasty assaults weapons that are killing everyone. So…every single TV station is either lying to you…or using the state propaganda.
Joe Biden, and all the democrats, if you notice, are using very graphic words to put in your mind the horror of little children getting murdered as IF we need to be reminded….and just the fact that they are pumping up this event, makes one think, that I wouldn’t put it pass them to commit the murders of young children in the first place. No Joyanna, you go too far: They are just using the moment for their own gain.
And that’s what happens when your government lies to you on a daily basis. The first report…there WAS a man in the woods, with a gun, and they let him go.
Untill I hear someone talk about that guy in the woods, I’m thinking the real people who could tell us what happened …are dead.
For the fact that the killer of Sandy Woods did NOT use an assault weapon…go to this—(For the Record)
Obama just armed all government departments with enough hollow-points to kill every American ten times over. He has just given himself and George Bush (for the people who BLAME George) secret service for life. We have YET to hear the first report of…why.
In his recent novel about JFK, Stephen King goes back in time and saves Kennedy from assassination. At the end of the book, he described how many books he had read about the JFK assassination and by all he had read, he was 99 percent sure that one man, Oswald, acted alone. He NEVER gives a reason for why Oswald did it…which to me proves that King is way off the mark. On the other hand, his wife thinks it was all a conspiracy, so at least there is one person in the family who thinks about what they read.
While I admire King as a hell of a writer, I don’t trust his instincts. Like many liberals, he is well-meaning. After reading perhaps almost as many books as King has on the subject, I came to the conclusion that LBJ had a hand in it. Nobody Thinks—as in the Benghazi murders, only a President could have stopped that attack, and only a Vice President could orchestrate a presidential takeover.
And why didn’t Stephen King give some kind of explanation FOR Oswald’s motive? That’s the problem with liberals, they never back up their thoughts with any kind of logic. They just say they ‘thought’ about it, and what they say should be the final word. It’s annoying.
From this video we feel, and instinct tells us, that the trillions of dollars that went missing from the pentagon might have tied into 9/11. I remember seeing Bill Clinton’s face that day, and what I saw on that face, was…guilt. I had seen his guilty face before on too many testimonial occasions. Sure, Bill missed getting Bin Laden about 6 times, but it was more than that. And years have proven, the Bush’s and the Clinton’s’ have always been good friends.
Today, I was reading about how much the Saudi’s were involved in 9/11 …..and then there’s this: There was a man named Turki.
“Who resigned as head of Saudi intelligence just days before the September 11 terrorist attacks. The closest of the princes to the Taliban Attended Georgetown University with Bill Clinton.”
Yesterday I read about how Daddy Bush (who is now it seems on his death-bed) hung around the Saudi Kings…a lot. He liked to lounge on their yachts.
When it comes to conspiracy theories, we are told to behave, and always use the simplest explanation…but somehow the simple explantions that are given to us, NEVER includes powerful men wanting money and power. The biggest difference between conservatives and liberals….is we don’t trust powererful men…THEY do.
Will there be another 9/11? Nobody thinks: When the money goes missing…….somebody will come out and say…
“We just don’t know where it went.”
Right. And I have NO clue where I put my frying pan.
Gee…can the Democrats get any nastier in their fight to stay in power? Obama will repeat, over, and over, and over, and over, how all republicans are out to kill you, beat you up, deprive you of birth control, give money to their rich friends, and kill your dog. Yes, and they HATE women.
It’s all garbage. Remember, Paul Ryan pushed grandma off the cliff, according to Obama. Both Allen West and : PAUL RYAN have more integrity in their pinkie fingernail than Obama has ever had in his life, and yet, nobody in the Republican party seems to know how to counteract Obama’s kicks in the genitals.
They mistakenly think that to turn the other cheek is the noble thing. It’s one of the reason’s the Bush’s put our country in such danger: They were more concerned about thier “gentlmanly” image in history, than the fate of the nation and the damage they did by NOT putting up a fight. . Mitt seems to be on the same road.
They…are wrong. Reagan wouldn’t have taken it…and he didn’t. Laugh at it if you must, but say something. Just who ARE running Romney’s campaign? Nimwits? Maybe Rupert Murdoch had it right…Mitt will get beat up and kicked to the curb by the time Obama’s Chicago thugs are through with him.
We need a spitfire. Someone that is going to FIGHT for us. That’s why Sarah Palin was so loved. She had passion…and didn’t put up with it.
Here’s another ad, almost the same as the Allen West one…from Soros’s Moveon (destorying America) .org. …..with the same old message: Mitt Romney wants to steal your money.
What money? Obama has taken it all.
One night last month, I was listening to Alex Jones on the radio, and he was interviewing John Perkins, the author of The Secret History of the American Empire. Alex seemed to like John, and the man pretty much went along with everything that Alex said. He gave very sweeping answers and agreed with Alex about the elites taking over the world…you know…that’s Alex’s thing, and so, I got John’s book from the library.
What’s it about? How America goes around the world, and with the World Bank, makes loans to poor countries, knowing these countries cannot pay back those loans, so the many companies and the dictators they work with, make off like bandits by building electric, roads, and taking whatever resources that country has: Gold, minerals, oil..etc….and the people stay poor.
The deeper I got into the book, the more it started to reek of…BS., and I started wondering if Alex had even READ this book, because he was sort of..promoting the guy. John says he worked as an economic hit man for major companies, and by the end of the book, I felt like I should go wash my hands.
The book was bleeding red all over me.
And there was one section that put it all into “WTF am I reading?” category really strong.
According to John…Daddy Bush bombed Panama because…well read it for yourself:
Rumors that George W. was photographed doing coke and having kinky sex during the time his father was president. There was a theory in Latin America that Noriega had used incriminating photos of the younger Bush and his cronies to convince the older Bush, to side with the Panamanian administration on key issuers. In retaliation, H.W. invaded Panama and hustled Noriega off to a Miami prison. The building housing Noriega confidential files had been incinerated by bombs: as a side effect, more than two thousand innocent civilians were burned to death in Panama City that day in December 1989. Many people claimed that this theory offered the only logical explanation for violently attacking a nation without an army and that posed too threat to the U.S.
Now…who am I to say this DIDN’T happen? I can’t say for sure. But what I can say is that if you read the rest of the book, he sounds too comfy with Muslims and communist dictators like Chavez and Castro, and you get the feeling that, yep— Here’s another disinformation propaganda minister, getting on all the conservative talk shows to act like they agree with them, and then start promoting the ‘America is evil’ program. And swearing they are truly American patriots.
Alex Jones does not endorse communism, so Nobody Knows if he knew the radical leftist that he had on his program…but I’ve been seeing this happen for years. People that are the, “we need to go back to the stone age, we are ruining the earth, cars are evil, people are evil, but Islam is really a peaceful nation” bandwagon really truly are out to change the world, and they start by making America Allah’s bulls- eye.
Another reason I didn’t like the book is because he put in a chapter about meeting this really attractive prostitute (obviously he traveled for that perk) and to this Nobody, he was bragging about his sex life.
Show me a man who gets his sex mostly with prostitutes and I’ll show you a liar, and a Secret Service wannabe
At the end of the book, you get a “global citizen” lecture: Don’t go shopping, jog: Buy at thrift stores: Write letters to Coca Cola: Cut back on gas and oil consumption: Downsize your whole life: Send money to non-profit organizations (He has TWO!): Volunteer your time: Drink tap water: Discuss pollution: Encourage taxes on gas, clothes, and electricity: and by all means, run for office!
So, Nobody Knows if the stuff John reports in his book is true or not…probably some of it is: but one thing is certain, John Perkins is a hit man for your pocket book.
If you want to study leftist propaganda: Do yourself a favor–don’t buy it, get it at your local library.
As for Alex Jones? Should I write him a letter and tell him that John Perkins is pretty much a communist?
It’s been twelve years…and 9/11 seems like yesterday. As we watched Bush’s “Shock and Awe” bombing of Baghdad on our television sets so long ago, we were told over and over how careful our military was with their really cool new weaponry that could target so precisely— they could hit a lunchbox. And remember? All the lights were on in Baghdad. To the Pentagon, it was one of their finest hours. The lights were kept on so we could all watch the cars going up and down the highway, and big explosions at the same time.
But, when the camera’s left… the lights did go off. And one of the reasons we were having such a hard time winning “hearts and minds” for democracy in Iraq, was how slow we were getting the lights back on. If you are going to win “hearts and minds” it helps if you give them air- conditioning.
According to Herbert Docena, who writes in the book, Nation Building…the fault lies in how our government handed out the contracts for rebuilding.
The money has flowed from the U.S. government to top-heavy, cash-rich American companies, who are providing needed technical expertise, but none is reaching the average Iraqi reconstruction ministries. For years after the shock caused such great awe, the Iraq’s suffered from power interruptions lasting on average of 16 hours a day. During the day, some 12 million unemployed hung out at the Green Zone looking for work. On top of that there was uncollected garbage, sewage, and general chaos.
Okay, we all expected that….but here’s something that you may not have known.
To get the electric back on, the electric turbines, which had been made by French, Russian, and Japanese manufacturing companies…needed to be fixed. Instead of just finding the parts from Russia or Japan, to replace the spare parts needed, the contractors bid for building new billion dollar power generators themselves. The parts missing would have cost a few hundred dollars.
In other words, instead of getting them what they needed to put the electric back on, Bechtels the contract holder, decided that he would get up to $20 billion dollars worth of construction contracts paid by the taxpayers for the next few years.
This also meant that there was limited electricity to run the oil refineries. The Iraq oil couldn’t be refined, so the US exported Iraq crude oil under a Halliburton subsidiary, which imported gasoline from Turkey and Kuwait.
In other words, the Halliburton subsidiary KBR (Kellogg, Brown, and Root) was charging the US government more than twice what other were paying for imported gasoline, some $61 million in overcharges. Not getting the electric back on worked very well for hired contractors. If they got the oil up and running in Iraq, KBR would not make any more money importing the oil.
There is a reason we have spent trillions in Iraq and Afghanistan, it’s called good old American greed, and as we have seen, we are still sending our boys over there to be killed…because somebody needs to protect the contractors. I heard a general just last week on Fox try to reassure Bret Baier that the middle East would still be open for business.
Gee…that’s nice. I’ll just go and get my camel.
Nobody is against oil companies making big profits, but not at the expense of the American citizen. This seems to prove that our government is now run by corporations: whether it’s Bush’s Halliburton, or Obama’s GE. Once again, the rich got richer off this war in Iraq, and the taxpayers footed the bill. Bankers, contractors…politicians…they love each other. Follow the dollar-brick- road. Obama said he’d stop the war, but he didn’t. He hasn’t. We are still there training our enemies.
Even Rumsfeld couldn’t account for literally billions of dollars that went missing in Iraq. He stood on a podium one day, said they couldn’t find the missing billions, and that’s all that was said, and then it was …okay.
You and I could not pay the IRS a few thousand dollars or we’d be put in Jail, not these guys. They all belong to the “get- out- of -jail free” mile high club—where you can have cocktails before your swim in the biggest swimming pool, in the biggest embassy in the World, and then go get your piece of the American pie.
In his book, We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People, Peter Van Buren, a career officer who worked on “rebuilding” Iraq, wrote this:
An unnamed ambassador demands to grow grass on the Embassy grounds in the green zone. When the seeds didn’t take, he imported sod from Kuwait, “brought by armored convoy to the Embassy. No one confessed to what it cost to import, but estimates varied between two and five million dollars.
Van Buren couldn’t even count all the fraudulent waste.
He remembers, for example, offering a free seedling to an Iraqi farmer, who “spat on the ground and said, ‘You killed my son, and now you are giving me a tree?’” An American farmer who lost a son in the war, could pretty much say the very same thing.
Nobody suggests they get the parts for the turbines in Iraq going, and the US should start pumping out oil for ourselves from Iraq.
Let me get this straight: Our boys died and we spent over 3 trillion dollars stabilizing Iraq, with US blood and money so that China could come in and take the oil?
Nobody Wonders: Who made this deal? Because..it was China that got the victory. And now the Commander-in-Chief is cutting the medical care to the boys who so bravely went to fight. Obama, is an obmination of a man, for this one act alone. And don’t tell me I should respect the “office.” Nobody is going to address that “logic” in another blog.
Nobody Thinks it’s time our government starts trying to win the “hearts and minds” of its own people….before…we lose both.
