It’s another week of total confusion: First—we are going to war, then, no, we are only doing counter terrorists strikes. Then Obama says it’s a war, but no boots on the ground, then maybe boots on the ground.
Well look: This about sums it up: (confusion starts at 3.52)
Obama can’t be seen going to war, and Glenn Beck says this is all about going to war in Syria, but then, elections are coming up in two months, so what can Obama do to make it look to the voters that he’s not dragging us back to war?
He can SAVE Africa!
WASHINGTON — Under pressure to do more to confront the Ebola outbreak sweeping across West Africa, President Obama on Tuesday is to announce an expansion of military and medical resources to combat the spread of the deadly virus, administration officials said.
The president will go beyond the 25-bed portable hospital that Pentagon officials said they would establish in Liberia, one of the three West African countries ravaged by the disease, officials said. Mr. Obama will offer help to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia in the construction of as many as 17 Ebola treatment centers in the region, with about 1,700 treatment beds
The American government will also provide 400,000 Ebola home health and treatment kits to Liberia, as well as tens of thousands of kits intended to test whether people have the disease That is worrisome, Dr. Osterholm said, because it is difficult to care for Ebola patients without becoming infected, and there is no proof that the kits will work. “We are going to endanger family members more by providing the kits,” he said.
AMAZING! Obama can send help half way around the world, set up the most efficient healthcare system seen anywhere on the earth, in fact, put our own men and women in harm’s way of death just to treat the people of Africa, (sending loaded guns just in case that virus comes at them with a deadly sword) but he can’t send more troops to Iraq to save people from getting their heads cut off.
Not to mention, did our dying veterans in THIS country get the help they were promised?
On the one hand, if Scotland leaves, Britain will be downsized, and Sean Connery will no longer be welcomed by the Queen. Somehow, I bet the vote comes down to just a few votes, in the Queen’s favor. You can’t tell me the rich in Scotland will sit by and let this happen. There are CASTLES at stake maaaan!
I suppose Scotland leaving England would be much like California leaving the United States. Personally, I like my mother’s idea. (Bless here soul: may she be NOT watching TV in heaven) Give California and New York to the liberals, let them break off from the rest of the country….we’d have the food basket. If California wanted our soybeans and corn, we could trade for some of their fruit. We could give Chicago back to the Indians.
I’m ready for a change. And speaking of change—
Leonardo DiCaprio has been tapped by the United Nations to be honored with the title of Messenger of Peace. This is what he said:
“It’s an honor to accept the role of U.N. Messenger of Peace on Climate Change and to support the Secretary General in his efforts to address one of the most important issues we face as a global community,” said DiCaprio in a statement.” ( and put the money in my Cayman account)
“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history — it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”
Wait! The fate of humanity? LEO..that’s Nancy Pelosi’s line! Nancy Pelosi said the fate of humanity depends on whether the democrats can hold the Senate!
What is Leonardo is going to do if the republicans take control of the Senate? Will he be peaceful?
Will he be full of peace and love and all good things? Is he going to tell us not to eat meat on Mondays? Will he get his picture taken with Nancy riding down Wall Street in the back of her limo?
But, that’s not the biggest question of the week. The BIGGEST question on my mind was WHO put the horns on Obama’s photo-op out of the White House last week, while he was announcing sending ‘advisors’ to Iraq?
Was it a liberal camera man who was secretly mad about it?
OR…is Obama claiming his REAL throne?
And will he be at the Satan Fest next week?
Nobody knows…but we do know one thing…he’s there in spirit.
And so, dear readers, we end another week of complete ignorance to which I can always say:
Seize the ignorant per diem!
I will go forever onward in my own nobody way, with only one thought in mind:
“You will have to take that hamburger out of my cold, dead, hands, Leo.
Stick to making movies about scumbags.”
Boy. Am I disappointed. Everyone is so impressed about Obama coming out last night. Sounding Presidential. Sounding tough. We are going to war—To kill…all those… Islamist Jihadists (Wait….they are not Islamists…no Islam is a peaceful religion…sorry.) Nobody seems to think it’s all the usual Obama big mouth bluster.
Come on. You really don’t buy that speech do you? Remember that “You will NOT cross the red line, and you’ll keep your doctor too!” moments?
“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Mr. Obama said. “That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”
Core principle? Since when? How many men that attacked Benghazi have been brought to justice?
Never mind that Obama said pretty much the same thing about getting all the people who killed our men in Benghazi. Yes, “Make no mistake” he would get them. (at the 1.00 mark)
So, excuse me…to most Americans this was just a more FORCEFUL speech, a political speech, to please the Americans people who are scared, elections are coming.
And why should we believe anything he says?
Face it: Here’s what the government doesn’t WANT to tell you. All democratic Presidents downsize the military and put money into their social programs. Bill Clinton destroyed so much of the military that it took George W. Bush a while to get it back up. About 9 months if I remember correctly.
They WANT you to think our military is always right there…READY. But, I’m not buying it anymore. And you’d better believe that the other countries know we are at our weakest.
Why else to you think Putin is having so much fun?
We’re just not ready to launch much of anything. Why else does Obama keep saying over and over “Uh..Everybody else has to help out..uh.”
Obama has already delivered half our military hardware to the local police, the rest he left over there for his ISIL.
And guess what? We don’t manufacture anymore, remember? How much do you think those bombs costs in China?
There has been a dramatic reduction in the Department of Defense. With the advent of GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) it is pretty clear that the force structure is totally inadequate to handle another campaign.
For the surge of 2010 in Afghanistan, more than 60 percent of the force structure was contract labor. And never before have contractors held such key positions.
Have we all forgotten that we are basically bankrupt? What’s the debt level now?
Two years ago it was $17 trillion. Have you heard ANY politician mention it in the last two years?
After the cold war, the budgets were cut, and too many contractors were competing for an ever shrinking budget . The companies began to merge to keep afloat.
Here’s a rundown a CIA operative, Dr. John B. Alexander
The mergers included huge companies, as well as acquisition and divestment of subsidiaries. As examples, in 1994 and 1995 Lockheed Corporation merged with Martin Marietta. Northrop merged with Grumman. Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas. Raytheon merged with E-Systems and acquired Hughes, which had already been bought by General Motors.
This all happened under Clinton.
Most Americans would have been happy for President George W. Bush to just go get bin Laden, but he decided to re-engineer the whole middle East.
Maybe he saw the bigger picture. Maybe he didn’t. Maybe it was all about the money.
But here we are, more vulnerable than ever before.
Our government spend billions and BILLIONS of our dollars on Homeland Security, and the NSA, and yet any fool jihadists with a nuke can walk into the country.
How in the HELL are we suppose to believe that they are protecting us?
How can we possibly believe anything any President tells us anymore?
In what world?
Until our borders are secure we are sitting ducks.
Tonight, when Obama was spitting out all that patriotic BS that you KNOW he hates at the end of his speech, I couldn’t help but think that on this 9/11, in Obama’s home town of Chicago, five firemen are sitting at home after being suspended for having the American Flag on their lockers.
They were ordered to take the flags down. They refused.
There is a Marine sitting in a jail in Mexico, and Obama won’t lift a finger for him.
All over this country veterans are dying, waiting to be seen by doctors…Obama only cares about the ones who make him look good.
And as if to add insult to every American on 9/11…Obama starts off by TELLING us that ISIS is not Islamic.
Well, they CALL themselves Islamic. They kill in the name of Allah. Just because Obama wants to make up his own definition of them, shows how insulting he can be.
And when you have the leader of your country, saying such idiotic things to the world, you have to know it’s not just us that is in trouble, it’s everybody else too.
Obama IS the most clueless and dangerous man to EVER hold that office.
So, Obama will ask for millions to bomb from Congress, and he will get it. Nobody will declare war (They never do anymore do they?) and the money will go down deep black holes, and end up somehow in the wrong hands, and then those wrong hands will kill millions with their…Allah intentions.
So, on this 9/11 day, I would personally like to send a message to Michelle Obama
“Michelle. For the FIRST time in my life, I am ashamed of my President.”
Okay. Maybe the second. (Bill Clinton was disgusting.)
We can only pray the good men and women who still make up much of this country, are watching out for us now…because we have a bigger problem.
And right about now, he’s on the 16th hole.
David Icke is known, next to Alex Jones, as the conspiracy-nut King. I happen to like the guy. I suspect that the reason why nobody takes him seriously is because he fully supports the idea that Reptilian aliens are actually controlling the planet from the moon.
But…having put that lovely thought out, I do think David is an expert on the Global elites, because, COME ON. We have all heard–every single global leader talk about their “New World Order” in fact, Kissinger just mentioned it last week. They DO all have a goal, and its to ‘order’ the world.
Notice how Obama said in his last speech that ISIS will be ‘managed’?
When Isis says it wants us all to die, that’s not a conspiracy, that’s a fact, and David’s ideas in this video are well worth listening to.
And when most of the global leaders in the world, keep talking about their plans for a “New World Order”—- I believe them. I take them at their word. And that’s the stuff the David Icke is a master at…he makes you look, listen, watch and think, about the global chess game.
And if you don’t believe in conspiracies, I have a question for you: How often do you conspire during the day?
Right now, my biggest conspiracy is to get my husband to mow the lawn for one…more…weekend. It’s NOT going to be easy. Do I cook a great meal? Complain that I just had my stitches taken out? Mention that I lost my bank card in the high grass?
So, Congratulations David! You win the Nobody’s Fool award of the week, for great thinking. (Even though this was filmed last June.)
Keep up the good fight!
Remember that song? ( See Edwin Starr sing it at the end…cool song.)
I was thinking today, about how Ronald Reagan crushed Russia. We are told that, Ronald got together with world leaders, and managed to bankrupt the Bear. But, Russia did that to herself didn’t she? Ten long years of war in Afghanistan, and after that war, Russia was ripe to fall. Reagan saw his chance and took it.
America, has done much the same thing: Spent trillions in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Obama has now retreated. But, according to Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, we have an even bigger problem now:
“They are as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. This is beyond anything we’ve seen. We must prepare for everything.”–Hagel
So, I thought, in contemplation of the upcoming war with ISIS, we’d review the costs of wars and contemplate, our upcoming expenses:
These costs were based on the 2008 dollars, so add inflationary numbers to all:
War of 1812 (1812-1815) $1.177 billion: 2,260 battle deaths.
Mexican War (1846-1849) $1.801 billion: 1,733 battle deaths.
Civil War...Confederacy (1861-1865) $15.244billion: 94,000 battle deaths.
Civil War…Union (1861-1865) $45.199 billion: 140,414 battle deaths.
Spanish American War (1898-1899) $6.848 billion: 385 battle deaths.
World War I (1917-1918) $253 billion: 53,513 battle deaths.
World War II (1941-1945) $4.114 trillion: 292,131 battle deaths.
Korean War (1950-1953) $320 billion: 33,629 battle deaths.
Vietnam War (1965-1975) $686 billion: 47,393 battle deaths.
Persian Gulf War (1990-1991) $96 billion: 146 battle deaths.
Afghanistan War (2001-) $800 billion: 906 battle deaths.(could not find updated info)
Iraq War (2003-) $1.7 trillion, 3,489 battle deaths., (Now near 5,000)
And $4 trillion in interest alone.
The costs do not include veterans benefits, war debts, or assistance to our allies. Casualties do not include civilians, noncombat deaths, those wounded or missing in action.
The report concluded the United States gained little from the Iraq war while Iraq was traumatized by it. The war reinvigorated radical Islamist militants in the region, set back women’s rights, and weakened an already precarious healthcare system, the report said. Meanwhile, the $212 billion reconstruction effort was largely a failure with most of that money spent on security or lost to waste and fraud.
As we watch the new evil of ISIS threatening the U.S., many experts believe that we will be hit on our own soil, thanks to Obama’s open border policies.
So, how much will the NEXT US war cost us?
Nobody Knows. But we do know one thing:
It will cost more than all others combined.
While we all sit and watch Putin invade the Ukraine, with stated plans to overtake other parts of old Russia, Obama makes fluffy speeches. Obama has made it known, Putin can do just about anything he wants. So can Iran. Obama’s new foreign policy is: America is just going to play golf. You guys go ahead and we’ll stay out of it.
According to Dwight D. Eisenhower, it’s a sure recipe for war.
And so, Nobody Remembers a speech that Dwight D. Eisenhower gave to the American people on March 29th, 1952, when he was running for President.
Eisenhower ran on three issues: Korea, Communism and corruption.
He defeated Democrat Adlai Stevenson in a landslide, with an electoral margin of 442 to 89, marking the first Republican return to the White House in 20 years. In the election he also brought with him a Republican majority in the House (by eight votes) and in the Senate (actually a tie, with Nixon providing the majority vote).
(Proving that real conservatives win elections.)
Below are a few examples from that speech. Eisenhower was one of greatest generals in world history, and reading it will make you wonder..how in the world did America fall so low with Obama? Who, if you listen to Eisenhower, will lead us all into WWIII.
Remember, in 1952, we were at war with North Korea:
“There is a Korean War—and we are fighting it for the simplest of reasons: Because free leadership failed to check and to turn back Communist ambition before it savagely attacked us. The Korean War, more perhaps than any other war in history simply and swiftly followed the collapse of our political defenses. There is no other reason than this. We failed to read and to outwit the totalitarian mind.
World War II should have taught us all one lesson. The lesson is this: To vacillate, to hesitate—to appease even by merely betraying unsteady purpose—is to feed a dictator’s appetite for conquest and to invite war itself. That lesson—which should have firmly guided every great decision of our leadership through these later years…was ignored in the development of the administration’s policies for Asia since the end of World War II. Because it was ignored, the record of these policies is a record of appalling failure.
Already along the 38th Parallel aggression is speaking with the too familiar voices of howitzers and cannons. our position is untenable and indefensible. The House should be aware of this.
These words of eloquent, reasoned warning were spoken about eleven months before the Korean War broke.
What a tragedy that the administration shrugged off that so accurate warning!
The armies of communism thus informed began their big build-up. Six months later they were ready to strike across the 18th Parallel. They struck on June 25, 1950. On that day, the record of political and diplomatic failure of this administration was completed and sealed.
Programs along at least two lines can instantly begin. We can, first, step up the program of training and arming the South Korean forces.
We can secondly shape our psychological warfare program into a weapon capable of cracking the Communist front.
The vital lesson is this: To vacillate, to appease, to placate is only to invite war–vaster war, bloodier war. In the words of the late Senator Vandenberg, appeasement is not the road to peace: it is only surrender on the installment plan.
I will always reject appeasement.
“A nations foreign policy is a much graver matter than rustling papers and bustling conferences. It is much more than diplomatic decisions and trade treaties and military arraignments. A foreign policy is the face and voice of a whole people. It is all that the world sees and hears and understand about a single nation. It expresses the character and the faith and the will of that nation. In this, a nation is like any individual of our personal acquaintance: the simplest gesture can betray hesitation or weakness, the merest inflection of voice can reveal doubt or fear. It is in this deep sense that our foreign policy had faltered and failed. “
I don’t know about you..but that last paragraph is chilling close to the Obama administration.
So, if you go by Eisenhower’s convictions: Obama’s handling of our foreign affairs in the world, will lead us all into the bloodiest war every fought. But…nobody reads history anymore…do they?
Everyone was talking today about how Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin wrote a scathing remark about America in an opinion piece.. The old cold war tensions are starting to blow up again, thanks to BO…and you might think this is the first time Russia has embarrassed the United States, but it’s happened before. Before Putin, there was Nikita Khrushchev.
According to Brian Thomsen in the book: Lies and Propaganda Thought History, America has stepped in deep doo-doo before. We have a habit of losing our spy planes:
In 1960 the cold war was heating up and an effort to defuse the tensions there was a summit meeting for May 16, bringing together the four heads of state of the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. Unfortunately on May 1, a U.S. Lockheed U-2 plane disappeared over the sovereign territory of the Soviet Union. Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev declared that a “spy plane’ had been shot down, whereupon the United States issued a statement reaffirming the claim that the plane was a ‘weather research aircraft” and the pilot had difficulty with his oxygen equipment during a mission over Turkey” The administration stated, “There was absolutely no deliberate attempt to violate Soviet airspace and never has been.”
The U.S. was lying.
The U-2 pilot, Francis Gary Powers had left Peshwar, Pakistan, intending to fly over the Soviet Union and land at Bodo, Norway with the intention to photograph Soviet intercontinental ballistic missiles development sites in and around Sverdlovsk and Plesetsk….but he was shot down by a 14 SA-2Guideline surface-to-air missile which brought the plane down. Powers was suppose to destroy the plane and/or himself, but he was captured after he abandoned the aircraft by parachute. The Soviets got the film, and found 7,500 rubles on him.
Powers was put on trial for espionage, pleaded guilty (to avoid being executed) and was convicted on August 19. After serving three years hard labor he was exchanged for Soviet spy master Rudolf Abel in 1962. The Paris summit was called off, and Eisenhower, Charles De Gaulle, Harold Macmillan, and Khrushchev. didn’t meet and things got worse.
As usual to American politics, a cloak of deniability was quickly fashion for the president to protect him from scandal….of course. Later on, when asked how high he was flying on May 1, 1960, he often replied, “evidently not high enough.” Many of you do not remember, but Obama lost a valuable spy plane to Iran in 2011. No, there wasn’t a pilot, but gee…nothing like handing over our best technology. Nobody Really remembers that now do they? That was an even bigger blooper than the U-2 taking pictures.
Yes, Nobody Remembers so I just thought I’d bring it up. Oh yes, George W. Bush lost a plane in China…but…he at least tried to get it back.
Last night, Obama made the pleading case of how hard it was for him to watch children being poisoned, and dying on hospitals floors. He tired to create emotions for the world to respond to the horror of children being gassed.
But…Does he forgets the images of Americans jumping to their death on 9/11? And the brave men and women who were crushed to death or died horrible deaths of choking on smoke or burning alive? Were not those images just as horrible?
Americans are a little less moved at other people’s suffering. This is not pre-Hitler. This is a new world, where death is seen everyday on our video games, our TV’s and our movies. We have been…hardened.
I walked into my mother’s room on 9/11, and even though she could not speak due to a stroke, she grabbed my hand, and pointed to the towers coming down with horror. She shook her head as if to say: “I want to leave this horrible world!”
If you watch the 9/11 ceremony, the people are just as emotional today as they were twelve years ago.
We should remember this day forever, and especially now: And think twice before we arm the same people who did this to us. And go again to stir up a hornets nest of hatred.
Nobody Wonders when the wars in the Middle East will be over. If we follow history—-never. We must never forget that Islam, is NOT a peaceful religion.
Lindsey Graham was a knockout during Bill Clinton’s Impeachment. I use to love to listen to him argue about Bill’s sexual escapades with Monica. I just loved his southern drawl.
But now, Lindsey’s sweet talk has turned to threats. Next to John McCain, Lindsey is all out for a full fledged war..and here’s his reasoning:
If the United States doesn’t deal with Syria, Graham promised Iran would acquire a nuclear weapon by 2014, the King of Jordan would be deposed and Israel would start preparing to protect itself.
“I believe that if we get Syria wrong, within six months — and you can quote me on this,” Graham said, pausing for dramatic effect. “There will be a war between Iran and Israel over their nuclear program.”
But it wouldn’t even end there, Graham surmised. Undoubtedly, he said ominously, the Iranians would share its nuclear technology with U.S. enemies.
“My fear is that it won’t come to America on top of a missile, it’ll come in the belly of a ship in the Charleston or New York harbor,” he said.
Oh. Right. So why not just bomb Iran? Why waste the bombs on Syria? How is bombing Syria going to stop Iran from making nukes? Netanyahu has already addressed Congress about just how close Iran is to developing nukes, and how nothing is going to stop them. Bombing Syria will just rush them to the fact more. Where was Lindsay on that day? Playing Golf with Obama?
And so—by Lindsey’s reasoning, ANYBODY can bring a nuke into the New York harbor. There are other countries with nuclear capability besides Iran. Pakistan for one. And gee…what is all that NSA spying for if not to stop stuff like that from happening?
And how about those open borders of ours?
Beware of those sweet talking southern men, with baby face wide eyes, appealing to your emotions.
You would think that after Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, people would know better than to keep voting for those sweet talking southern charmers.
You would think.
Nobody Wins: Here we have two nobody inventor winners! Don’t want Obama following you to your girlfriend’s house? Block that signal.
Okay, so I see a few bugs here. What happens when you have to make a call? It looks like you would have to take it out of the ‘pocket’ and then BAM. They’ve got cha.
Or maybe you can put your off pocket hoodie on while you’re making your call….or better yet— Get them to stop spying on you. (Laugh here)
Wait…then the call signal won’t go out.
Anyway, the good news here is, nobody likes to be snooped on, and these two nobodies are trying to do something about it. Good for them!
Nobody Wins: Another big win this week was Ann Coulter’s last column, where she compares Saddam Hussein’s crimes to Assad. When Ann is hot, she is sizzling. Read that here.
Nobody Wins: It was a big loss today when John Kerry kept insisting to Rand Paul that bombing Syria, would not, and should not be considered taking us to war. It’s just an ‘action’ to make Assad stop using chemical weapons. It’s one thing to change the meaning of what the word ‘is’ —but, it’s quite another when your Secretary of State changes the meaning of dropping bombs on a country from a declaration of war, to some sort of friendly warning letter.
Nobody Wins: Another loss went to Miley Cyrus, who bragged about how successful her sex dance was on MTV, because she is reeling in the MONEY! Nobody suggests she get her ears fixed.
Nobody Wins: And on a lighter note, at the zoo today, we were walking around the corner, and we kept hearing loud rhythmic GRUNTS. We came around the corner—-and low and behold…somebody got lucky! (Yes, I HAD to take a picture, wouldn’t you?) If you’ve never seen a Galapagos Turtle having sex, you might want to put that on your bucket list of “uh?” I’m so sorry I did not have my movie camera. His grunts were just great.
What I did notice was that SHE was eating an apple during the whole thing. Which gave me a few ideas……
Questions abound in this Nobody Mind—
Obama has made it known to the whole world, that it was Assad that gassed his own people, therefore, Obama will attack. But, WND, has some proof that Obama’s much beloved rebels, who are filled with Muslim Brotherhood radicals, were the ones who launched the attacked. Nobody Knows who to believe: Obama, or good American investigative reporters.
Nobody knows WHY Obama’s administration has to announce every single precise military movement through the newspapers and Cable TV? Doesn’t Obama know that this isn’t a simple ‘police’ action but a declaration of war?
Nobody Knows, how Congress let the President decide to go to war all on his own, and remains silent.
Nobody Knows, how in the world Obama figures to send us all off to war, when he has decimated our armed forces, and driven our economy into the dustbowl of depression.
Nobody Knows why the liberal press, who screamed bloody murder about George W. Bush bombing Iraq because WMD’s were a National threat to the nation, can be so silent when Obama is saying the very same thing.
Nobody Knows, and according to some reports..the U.S. had plans to take out all these countries in the Middle East, starting with Iraq, long before 9/11, and that Obama is simply following the game plan.
Nobody Knows why John McCain and Karl Rove are practically salivating at the mouth to send our boys into Syria.
Nobody Knows if we have hit the point, where our leaders figure the only way for the United States to survive, is to enter into a major war in order to unite the people, and get people working again, and for THAT to happen, we will have to be attacked on our own soil again.
Which brings me to—–
Nobody Knows why Dick Cheney keeps mentioning that scary scenario every single time he is on TV, but Nobody Thinks Dick isn’t just whistling Dixie. Dick Cheney believes it will happen. He has for years.
Nobody Knows what would happen if China and Russia side with Assad and go to war against the United States, but from a military point of view, America is at her weakness.
Nobody Knows if the Jews will take out Iran, in the near future.
Nobody Knows what to believe and what is disinformation, but Nobody Thinks everybody should stock up on booze and water.
That’s’ enough question for now.
Nobody Knows why my mind keeps thinking these things….but maybe I think our leaders want war, because Napolitano said this before she left for California:
Nobody Knows, if she is secretly sleeping with Dick Cheney’s…daughter. I would be surprised if it was Dick.
And Nobody Knows if THAT’s why Janet Napolitano got out sooner, rather than later. She didn’t want to take the blame for it.
While everyone is fretting about masks on clowns, and Oprah Winfrey’s delicate ego, Nobody Asks: HEY…What happened with North Korea? Did Kim Jong-un find another hobby? Where IS the little cheeky chipmunk? Wasn’t he going to nuke the United States not too long ago?
Gee…Obama acted as if he was a flea making noise, and he treats Putin the same way. I don’t know about you, but ever since Einstein wrote that letter to FDR saying something like, “Yes, this could destroy the whole world.” I think our President should quit talking about the “middle class,” which as everybody knows, is somewhere in the Magic Kingdom stuck on the Dumbo ride—- and start taking his job seriously…you know— the part where he promises to ‘protect and defend’ us? Did he miss that part?
I’m aging myself here, but I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was only a kid, but I do remember asking my dad why he was digging a big hole in our back yard in Naples, Florida, one Sunday afternoon in broad daylight.
As I remember, he didn’t sugarcoat it:
“We might get hit by a bomb in a few days, and we’ll be safe in this hole.” he said.
“Will that bomb kill us?”
“Yes. But, I think we’ll be safe in the hole. Go get some canned beans from mom. “
That was the ‘greatest generation.” My dad had seen what war does, (He had been a Seabee in the Pacific) and they didn’t believe hiding the truth from their kids. Eisenhower was a great man according to my parents, and this new John Kennedy kid, well…he was just a pretty face as far as they were concerned, and didn’t know what the heck he was doing. They didn’t really think he would keep us from being attacked. They had absolutely no confidence in him, whatsoever.
And here I am, too many years later, and I find myself having the same mistrust on THIS President, whom to me…also got elected on his pretty face, but unfortunately for us, is ten-fold more clueless than JFK. JFK, you could very well say, was a patriot and loved this country: Obama…does not.
America is just as vulnerable now from nuclear attack as it has ever been..and with each new President many of us ask ourselves, “Will THIS one be the one who will refuse to let go of power?”
After all, all any of them is a good crisis as an excuse–to hang on.
Here’s a few facts from Dinesh D’Souza’s excellent book: Obama’s America, about Obama’s destructive disarmament of our country, and I include some remarks underneath:
Dinesh: In 2009 when Obama took office, the US had approximately 5,000 nuclear warheads in its arsenal. Obama resolutely set about slashing that number. In 2011, Obama negotiated an arms reduction treaty with Russia, the so called START treaty, in which both countries agreed to reduce their warhead count to 1,5550. America and Russian also limited their launchers to 700. In convincing the US Senate to support the treaty, Obama promises to modernize America’s existing nuclear assets a promise he subsequently abandoned.
Nobody: Recently it was reported that our nuclear facilities were ‘dangerously” vulnerable to attack–due to failing recent mock security tests—- and leaving many places like the Bay Area and Denver vulnerable to a detonation that would “dwarf” the impacts of Chernobyl. If we are attacked–Obama will be playing cards with Reggie Love on Air Force One.
Dinesh: Some of the provision of the treaty were downright odd: the limit on 700 launchers imposed not restrictions o Russia, since Russian already had fewer than 700 launchers. Once START was ratified and became law. He has asked the Pentagon to study reducing America’s nuclear deterrent by up to 80 percent, which would bring us down to around 300 strategic warheads. All of this is occurring at a time when other nuclear armed nations like China are expanding and modernizing their arsenals. Never before in history has a global superpower disarmed itself so rapidly and so thoroughly.
Nobody: Typical of Obama. While he hurts his own country at home, he is now helping Saudi Arabia develop nuclear energy. Much as Clinton helped North Korea developed their nuclear energy and we know how that turned out. Democrats just LOVE to help other countries come up to par in a nuclear world…and why is that again?
Dinesh: America can strike back, but China and Russia have an additional 150 warheads each with which they can level every major American city. The point is that America is not deterred from striking back, because it fears a completely devastation second strike that would basically end America as we know it. These are war games that the Pentagon has played since the dawn of the nuclear age.
Nobody: Oh…peachy. Can we put that reset button on Obama’s head?
Dinesh ;Early in this presidency Obama cut back on missile defense systems in Alaska and California. Obama canceled an anti missile system planned for Poland as well as a missile detection radar system planed for the Czech Republic.
Nobody: I bet Polish people can wear Obama masks!
Dinesh: We can no longer fight two wars on two different shores. In 2009, Obama ordered $330 billion in defense cuts. The next year he convinced Defense Secretary Robert Gates to pare an additional $100 billion. In 2011 Obama chopped an additional $487 billion from the Pentagon, thus bringing his total cuts to nearly a trillion dollars.
Nobody: But he has increased drones, and you’d better not touch his daughters.
Dinesh: While the defense department is being cut to the bone, other programs like health care and green technologies are bloated with money. Obama shows no evident interest in reducing overall spending only in reducing military spending.
Nobody: I don’t think Obama has been to Bora Bora yet.
Dinesh: Obama’s hope, is that fear will keep America humble. Call it humility through vulnerability. And in this way Obama hopes that America will stop acting like the evil empires.
And that’s the point of his book: Obama believes that America HAS been the evil empire…and the reason that he admires the Muslim Brotherhood, says Dinesh, is not because he is a Muslim himself, but because he sees them as freedom fighters against the big, bad, and mean America. He disarms us…invites us to be attack. And yet…Congress does nothing.
I don’t know what to think: But it seems clear to me this country has never been more vulnerable to attack then we are with Obama. No NSA agent is going to find out who sent the nuke by monitoring Verizon Wireless. Telephones are a poor substitute for a strong military.
One thing I do know….If there was another nuclear crisis–unlike JFK, who got on TV and warned us all—-Obama would be hiding somewhere over the rainbow, playing golf in the Bahamas, and we’d be the LAST ones to know….exactly what happened.
But…just in case you don’t have a dad like I did…somebody ESLE has made lots of TV series teaching us all about how to survive a nuclear attack, or just about anything. Aren’t they sweet?
You gotta love America. :)
When America dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the argument for whether that was a humane thing to do, is still being debated. Many people said that we should have continue the war and sooner or later we could have overtaken Japan as we did Germany, rather than killing all those innocent lives.
But..what many people don’t know, is that the Japanese had developed a nonmetallic land mine that could not be detected by any known means. They planted these mines in random patterns across the beaches of Japan and along all possible invasion routes. Estimates of deaths from those land mines alone ran into the hundreds of thousands. They tried in vain to find a way to destroy them. Dropping bombs from airplanes in Europe failed.
According to Richard Anderson, a renown staticist who was working on the problem with the Defense Department at the time—
One of the reasons why the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan was that all their experiments and calculations showed that it was impossible to destroy these mines by any other means.
So…if history repeats itself…we may all wonder about Iran: Will we ever see another nuclear weapon used in our lifetime?
And is the reason why our Congress approves such an unconstitutional measure of using drones on our home soil—is because they know something we don’t? Are there terrorists in the United States already with nuclear material? Some experts say it’s entirely possible.
Ahmadinejad has threatened to hit the ‘heart’ of America with some kind of devastation weapon. North Korea…is threatening New York. Obama says nothing.
Today we find out that when Obama was told about the attack happening in Benghazi, he told Leon Panetta to do whatever they felt necessary, and then Obama took off at 5 o’clock and nobody spoke to him again, even though the attack went on for hours… which means:.
1) He’s the most incompetent President ever in the history of the United States and just went off to have his big dinner and watch basketball…or
2) He ordered the stand-down in Benghazi and sacrificed those men because he didn’t want it to get out that the ambassador was helping supply Al-Qaeda with arms and weapons before his elections, and everything that happened following that was a cover-up.
3) Both of the above.
Nobody finds it less than funny that after all these years, our government couldn’t have come out and just admitted that the Japanese had land mines that so well protected their island, we couldn’t defeat them from the ground. It would have made a lot more sense. Was not revealing this fact a way to make us look big, and invincible?
“What we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem.” Thomas Merton “No Man Is An Island:
So..what is the truth? Obama lies. Panetta lies. Hillary lies. Who do we believe? Dick Cheney, the most hated man in America for years, said that his worst nightmare was to wake up to a nuclear attack on an American City.
Nobody Thinks….Hell, I’m not sure what I think, but I do know one thing…I’d rather be drinking Rum & Coke on the beach in Hawaii than thinking about any of this…care to join me?
I found this video by random today: A young boy signs up, and then finds out that war is terrible–and this same video could have been made back in 1969. He is right about many things: America does get in too many wars…and if it were up to its citizens, after the attack, we would have gone to kill bin Laden, and not bombed Iraq. America’s military is in too many countries, and war makes too much money for too many people. Despite what Bush thinks…Iraq has turned out to be another Vietnam. He might have to wait more than 50 years to get his glory.
BUT…to say that it’s a ‘racist’ war, is going a bit too far. We…were attacked. Innocents were killed, not soldiers. Unlike WWII, no Muslims in this country were rounded up, even though the Muslims here pose much more of a danger than the poor Japanese’s citizens living here back in 1942 ever did.
What did President Bush do? He got the rich ones out, at our expense. Fine with me.
I must admit, while I don’t agree with most of the points made in the video, I can see how a young man involved over there could rationalized his pain in exactly that way. The young…just don’t know any better. Life will hit them…and thank god it will be later rather than sooner.
So, blame it on the corporations? I’ll go with that. BUT…blame it on the racist Americans who will not bow or feel compassions for Islam?
You have to ask yourself: what has the army been feeding these guys?
Today it was released in the news, that Obama is going full-force “Allah” by issuing a demand that our armed forces may KILL Muslims, but, they cannot for any reason talk against them.
Really? Oh..that REAL logical.
The new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other Islamic things.
The new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces. The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of “taboo conversation topics” that soldiers should avoid, including “making derogatory comments about the Taliban,” “advocating women’s rights,” “any criticism of pedophilia,” “directing any criticism towards Afghans,” “mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct” or “anything related to Islam.”
Okay soldier: you turn your head when you see that Afghan with that little boy.
Can you believe this shit? (Sorry…I’m still an American)
Obviously, this is more proof that Obama and Hillary are on a mission to make it against the law to talk against Islam in this country. The military will be FORCED to do so.
The citizens will be next.
And after that? Submission.
So, when Hillary says she is NOT going to run for office in 2016, I’d believe her, because the Muslim Brotherhood is not going to want a woman in the White House, and it seems it’s their mission to not offend the Muslims at any cost.
Unless of course, she wears a burka..and I know a few fellows who would approve.
The truth is: someone will always be at war. The war in the Middle East will only stop when the Saharan sands turned to Broccoli…and by that time, all the prophesies will come true…and until that time, the remaining Americans who love their country have a even more powerful enemy to survive.
Their own govenment. And on that–the young and the old, can agree.
I would not be doing my parent’s memory any favors if I did not remember the day in history that Pearl Harbor was attacked. My father ran off at fifteen to join up to go fight the ‘Japs’, as did his father and his brother (who was killed in the Pacific) and my mother’s first husband was wounded and so he divorced her (his idea) and then she met my father while he was on leave on a boat on the Mississippi…in his sailor’s suite..and that’s why I’m here. My father’s rubbery legs were just too hard to resist.
Anyway, I couldn’t resist finding out what else had happened on the infamous day, so here’s a few of the events that interested me, with some really nebulous Nobody thoughts:
43 BC - Marcus Tullius Cicero (b. 106 BC), Roman orator and politician assassinated.
(We honored him with a salad dressing, and a city in IL, which contains a big prison. .)
1787 - Delaware becomes 1st state to ratify constitution
(And now, one of the first to ratify gay marriage)
1808 - James Madison elected 4th US President and George Clinton Vice-President
(Any relation to Bill? And if so..what happened to the gene pool?)
1868 - Jesse James gang robs bank in Gallatin Missouri, kills 1
(Who was shot by Jesse just for fun, but to this day it’s denied)
1877 - Thomas A Edison demonstrates the gramophone
(OMG–imagine…no recording of ANYTHING? I simply can’t. Because of Tom Edison, we got to see video pictures of Pearl Harbor being bombed.)
1937 - Red Sox acquire the contract of 19-year-old Ted Williams
(Who now lies frozen without his head. Or his head lies frozen wo his body..which is it?)
1934 - Wiley Post discovers jet stream
(COME ON…I think they knew about that LONG before Wiley.)
1941 - Japanese attack Pearl Harbor (a date that will live in infamy)
(Even if we wanted to forget it, the Japanese would never let us.)
1945 - Microwave oven patented
(Mr. Tortino will forever be grateful)
62 - Great Britain performs nuclear test at Nevada Test Site
(Uh..WHY did we let the Brits test THEIR bombs on OUR soil? Didn’t we win the war? Couldn’t they have tested in on one of their many empires? What? )
1968 - M Dodd returns a library books his Great grandfather took out in 1923.
(It was probably a book about Cicero. I wouldn’t have returned it either)
1973 - Wings release “Band on the Run”
(Nobody could figure out why Paul McCartney was running…unless it was from drug charges. He should move to Colorado with his new wife, and do a new version of Rocky Mountain High…Colorado…)
1987 - Palestinian uprising against Israel in West Bank
(For those of you who do not read history…newsflash…this will never stop. )
1988 - Mikhail Gorbachev cheered by Wall St crowds upon arrival in NYC
LOL! A communist cheered by Wall Street! Proof that Wall Street LOVES a good communists because a free market President would have never bailed them out!
1990 - Ted Turner & Jane Fonda announce their engagement
(And they lived happily ever after until he found a woman with bigger boobs.)
And so, today, something might happen.
Let’s just hope it not a repeat of Pearl Harbor.
To all the vets from all the wars
We love you all.
