Want to see something interesting? Here are excerpts from The State of the Union address of then President, Bill Clinton, given on February 17, 1993. I’ve taken some very interesting lines from it, just to show you..some surprising statements, and some not so surprising goals. In some places, you can close your eyes and hear Obama. I hope you have as much fun reading this as I did.
CLINTON: The conditions which brought us to this point are well known. Two decades of low productivity and stagnant wages: Persistent unemployment and under employment: years of huge government deficits and declining investment in our future: exploding health care coast, and lack of coverage: legions of poor children educational and job training opportunities inadequate to the demands of a high wage, high growth economy.
(So now—- we’re up to 8 decades, and it’s all getting worse.)
I well remember, 12 years ago Ronald Reagan stood at this podium and told the American people that if our debt were stacked in dollar bills, the stack would reach 67 miles into space. Today that stack would reach 267 miles.
The time for blame has come to an end. I came here to accept responsibility: I want you to accept responsibility for the future of this country.
( I love democrats, I’ll except it. No wait….YOU accept it. )
Our plan has four components: First: reverses our economic decline. Second: changes the rhetoric of the past: Third: It substantially reduces the Federal deficit. And finally, it earns the trusts of the American people by paying for these plans with cuts in Government spending—and by fairness for a change, in the way the burden is borne.
(As we have seen, government spending never stops. What happened there Bill? )
I call on Congress to enact an immediate jobs package of over $30 billion. We will put people to work right now and create half a million jobs, jobs that will rebuild our highways and airports, renovate housing, bring new life to our rural town and spread hope and opportunity to among our nations’ youth..
In order to accomplish public investment and deficit reduction Government spending is being cut and taxes are being increased.
(What did Clinton cut? Monica’s thong? )
Our plan invests in our roads, bridges, transit facilities, in high- speed railways and high tech information systems; and in the most ambitious environmental clean- up of our time.
(And his name was Al. —-What is it with these liberals? It’s like they get Daddy’s credit card and want to go to Neiman’s and just buy the whole damn department store…..)
But all of our efforts to strengthen the economy will fail unless we take bold steps to reform our heath care system. American’s businesses will never be strong, American’s families will never be secure: and America’s government will never be solvent until we tackle our health care crisis.
(Right. Obamacare is going to make America solvent. And that is why, Obama will never give in. Look how long the elites have wanted this. I say elites, because RINO’s are in on this.)
He goes on to talk about NAFTA (which he passed and destroyed us further: Head Start, which is the state getting your baby early while the single mother is working, and a National Service program. I guess that’s next on Obama’s list.)
But to revolutionize government we have to insure that it lives within its means.
(Can you believe he said this?)
And that starts at the top with the White House staff by twenty five percent, saving ten million dollars. It’s time for our government to be as frugal as any household in America.
(This one kills me. Of course, these guys want to clear people out of the White House so that they can walk around it more freely and treat it as their own personal mansion. Obama has finally done that. The money they save, is made up by all the world trips both the Clintons and the Obama’s have made on Air Force One. They are Kings, but want you to think that they are suffering….the less people at the White House, the more they can invite their friends over to party. By the way…where IS Buddy Love?)
But we can go further. Tonight I call for an across the board freeze in federal government salaries for one year.
(Wow…then the next day after the year is up, they get a raise. Can you believe this spin?)
We are cutting the deficit so that your family can afford a college education for your children. We are cutting the deficit so that someday your children will be able to afford a home of their own.
(Oh…we’re really &$^$ now.)
I ask you to raise federal income taxes from 31 percent to 36 percent. For businesses with taxable income over ten million dollars we will raise the corporate tax rate to 36 percent.
(By the way, it was Clinton that took our Social Security so that he could claim he balanced the budget…)
Unless we have the courage to start building our future and stop borrowing from it, we are condemning ourselves to years of stagnation, interrupted only by recession: to slow growth in jobs, no growth in incomes, and more debt and disappointment.
(Uh…can somebody please send this to Harry Reid and Obama tomorrow?)
Worse yet, unless we change, unless we reduce the deficit increase investment and raise productivity so we can generate jobs we will condemn our children and our children’s children to a lesser life and a diminished destiny.
Okay…if I was a House republican right now, I’d put this quote up, and say…HEY…Bill CLINTON SAID THAT, Obama. Our diminished destiny is here NOW!
What…do I have to dig this stuff up for these guys?
“Our Constitution was designed for a moral and a religious people; it is wholly inadequate for the governing of any other.”
Remember that commercial where they would say, “Do YOU know where your child is?” at such and such a time? Well, if I had money, I would put an ad on all the cable channels with that statement, a picture of Obama, and the question:
“It’s the 4th of July. Do YOU know where your President is?”
Most of us can’t keep up with Obama, who loves to get out of the country as much as he possibly can, and last week’s $100 million dollar trip to Africa, was all done, not for the United States, but for the promotion of…you guess it…the Grand Black Booba himself— who is so eager to take over the title of supreme BLACK leader of the world, he couldn’t wait to use the opportunity of Mandela’s (The first black world leader) last dying breathe to milk the PR.
Except: HA! The family didn’t let him in to see the guy! How embarrassing! Mandela isn’t stupid. To make it seem as if it was actually himself, ( Obama,) that didn’t want to bother the man, he said this:
And then he went and made sure that everyone saw him standing in Mandela’s old cell, and contemplating that he gave himself, as President of the United States, unconstitutional and draconian power, to grab anyone in the world, (including American citizens) –hold them in a jail for as long as he wants, without a trial, and never let them out again. In our country, if Obama had arrested Mandela, nobody in the world would have known about it. Mandela would be a Nobody. He would have just…disappeared.
If they had apartheid, what do we have? (Try not to answer that. Or, scream first.)
Okay, so he was trying to imagine what it would be like to stare at the same four walls for 27 years because Obama, let’s face it, has lead a very rich and charmed life. The most suffering he has ever done was when he couldn’t score enough cocaine for the weekend.
Obama met the usual protestors that all American Presidents get abroad, but I’m sure that we supplied the stun grenades and rubber bullets to help out the local police. And the crowds he spoke to were hand-picked, just like here. If I had been his adviser, I would have told him, “Mr. President, maybe you ought to STAY in this Mandela prison, where you can be safe, and save the American taxpayers money, and really be a hero to be remembered!”
I have truly missed my calling as a Presidential advisor.
Obama got another important endorsement from the South African leader, Jacob Zuma, who said that he and Obama were “bound by history as the first black presidents of their respective countries. ” If that’s all it takes to get high powered jobs, I’m can’t wait for the day we have our first orange ones.
Obama also gave $7 billion to build infrastructure, (which the people in Colorado and Kansas sure could have used) and promised to stop global warming, but it still didn’t get him a picture with Mandela. (Maybe Bill Clinton will let him borrow his.)
And to show the world how he supports ‘democracy” Obama is sending 400 U.S. Troops to help Mohamed Morsi handle those pesky protestors who want democracy.
Yes, Obama likes to talk about democracy, I said he likes to TALK about it. He talks about it all the time.
Asked about the importance of democracy in Africa, he referred to Nelson Mandela’s insistence of “constitutions, the rule of law, and respect for human dignity” promising to “bring light” to sub-Saharan Africa in the form of a $7 billion investment in extending electricity to the two-thirds of the continent that still do not have it.
Yes, let’s light up Africa. Obama needs a legacy there, because his legacy here is not doing so good.
Unfortunately, whether we want to know it or not, Obama will be back in the United States, on the 4th of July, pontificating, and blowing hot air about the Constitution, the rule of law, our veterans, and independence, and the sad news is: The whole world knows that Obama, is not a good man. There is nothing religious or moral about him, and he represents us.
And the first black president MISSED his chance to get his picture taken with the world’s greatest black leader. Too bad.
Obama might want to be the next Mandela—but something tells me he might have to wait a long time. And guess who is going to be flashing her picture with Mandela everywhere soon? That’s got to hurt.
President Clinton did this: He went around Congress by giving the Commerce Department the power to transfer many of our military secrets to China. Before that, China was 40 years behind us in the nuclear race. Now they can nuke any American city thanks to Bill Clinton.
That was high treason. They impeached him for the wrong reason. Looking back, the Monica scandal might have just been the cover up for the real crime.
And Obama, as we are seeing today with the Benghazi scandal, IRS, and tapping of the phones of the press…is just like Clinton. He has been doing gun running in Mexico, and the middle East. He went into Libya without Congressional consent.
And now, he is grabbing complete control of our schools. According to Stanley Kurtz, this is how he did it:
From Spreading the Wealth
One: Instead of asking Congress to appropriate money in support of your new education policy, thereby provoking public discussion of the issue, insert the funding for your key education initiative in a massive stimulus package, passed rapidly with virtually no debate even on economic policy, much less education. That is precisely how President Obama procured the $4.35 billion to be used solely at the Department of Education’s discretion for his Race to the Top Initiative.
Two: Now that you’ve got a huge pile of money free from congressional constraints and even public debate, use it as a lure to move the country’s education system toward a federally controlled curriculum. Make the willingness to adopt a national Common Crone a ritual condition of receiving Race to the Top grants, even before the standards and curriculum before finalized.
Three: Orchestrate the creation of a national curriculum and standards fro the White House while denying central control. Recruit publicly unaccountable groups like the National Governors Association to sponsor the project. Bring in the massively wealthy Gates Foundation for funding add supervisor. Obama is making cash strapped states an offer they can’t refuse. So they “volunteer” for the program.
Education is Constitutionally in the hands of the states. What Obama is doing deserves impeachment.
Will they impeach him for his many crimes?
Don’t count on it. But, if you have children in school, you will have to keep close watch on what they are learning.
Once again, the timing of the dedication of x-President, George W. Bush’s library, couldn’t have had come at a more propitious time. The nation had just been attacked by Muslim radicals, giving the Bush family a platform to remind us all, that Bush kept us safe throughout the rest of his Presidency after 9/11. And in this light, it was okay for George himself to push for another Bush in the White House: His brother, Jeb.
As I watched the former Presidents all standing, and then the speeches, I can’t say that any one of them talked about what THEY had done for our country. It was all about how they, while doing the ‘toughest’ job in the world…changed the world, and plan to keep on doing it.
Not much about helping America. No mention of the hard times we are going through now.
I posted Jimmy Carter’s speech, simply because to me, what all of the former Presidents seem to be most proud about is what they have accomplished in other countries. That’s all they bragged about in all their speeches. According to the former Presidents, Bush’s best legacy was his work on aids in Africa. Clinton, Carter, and Obama all mentioned it.
George W. himself continued his great theme of globalization. America’s future is to spread democracy around the world. Never mind that since Bush and Obama, the trillions of American dollars spent to spread democracy around the world has not done a damn thing but strengthen more tyrants and America haters abroad, and destroyed the economy at home.
The theme of Bush’s library is freedom. But…while he dreams of spreading freedom all over the world, in America, the citizens continue to lose theirs.
The Bush doctrine is that only in freedom will democracy flourish, while true and noble….it makes no sense to a religion based on anything BUT freedom. All the children of Islam are brainwashed before they start to walk. I guess Bush thinks sometime 3,000 years from now, the world’s population of Muslims will decide to vote for someone who goes against everything they’ve learned from birth, and will thank George Bush for saving them from poverty and giving them democracy.
Frankly, I don’t see it happening.
Nobody Thinks that the reason all these Presidents have to praise themselves on how what they personally did to further and help the world is because none of them have down a damn thing to help Americans. All of them are too busy helping the rest of the world. Globalization may make good speeches and wonderful ideas for American Presidents who build multi-billion dollar museums to themselves and keep their own families working forever, but they all just become another part of the 1 percent that live among the rich and famous. The Presidential museums will be the last remaining things standing if we keep on this “We will fix the world” path.
George W. Bush comes off as a very sweet and likable man, but so does Bill Clinton. But, they were paid to work for America…not to eliminate poverty all over the world because it makes them feel better about themselves. (Or helps out big corporations who want into the global markets.) We must not judge Presidents on how much we like them as people, but on what they have done for us. And let’s be frank: None of them can be considered great.
So, when Bush started crying at the end of his speech— when he said the future of America will be great…a lot of us felt like crying with him. Everyone said he was crying because of all his friends. But to those watching, he was crying because America might never recover, and he knows it.
Personally, I don’t think Bush is that dumb.
Instead of talking about what they have all done for America, all they could talk about is how much money they sent out to the rest of the world. It’s enough to make you mad. And we still have good men dying in Afghanistan.
After the ceremony, I came across this video of Daniel Hannan, explaining how Margaret Thatcher took a dying England and brought it back to life. It’s what we need here. A President that takes care of his country: FIRST.
That’s what we should have heard today: George W. Bush could have brought America’s strength back. Instead, he choose his own course of “saving the world.”..and because he chose the wrong course, the communists, came forward.
George…you broke my heart.
You know, maybe our “Presidents” should just start building their libraries in Africa, and Iraq, and all over the world. And I apologize tonight to anyone who feels I’m too cynical about them all, because frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn about any of them.
And I will spend the rest of my life, trying NOT to remember the years I spent feeling betrayed, by each and every one of them.
North Korea just released this video in where they dream of nuking New York. In the background is the music of Michael Jackson– “We Are the World.” Nobody asks herself —is the reason they want to nuke New York is because Steven Spielberg lives in California? Why hit the same place twice? Isn’t Micheal Bloomberg doing enough damage as it is?
And oh my goodness…’President’ Obama today…all of a sudden, seems a bit worried about the “sequester” coming up in March, which will decimate our military down to the point that even people with the video capabilities of a six-year-old can fire some missiles at us, and have a decent chance of succeeding.
You know, it’s got to be tough. Here’s a President that is trying to bring troops home from around the world, in order to put them to work as his own private HomeLand Security army, and some little dweeb over in North Korea is making him look silly.
And you might say: Come on Joyanna…how can a country that can’t even make a simple video actually launch a missile to hit New York? (And once again…why is it always New York?)
Well…once upon a time…Bill Clinton sent over his favorite plutonium giver Sandy Berger, and Sandy supplied North Korea with enough uranium to make their own bombs, which they did. Of course, Clinton said later that, “They lied, they told me they needed it for peaceful means.”
And just recently, Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, went over to North Korea with Sandy Berger, and…you have to wonder what else was given to them? Have you noticed that Bill Clinton and Sandy Berger are the only two politicians that love to visit North Korea? Have you also noticed that every time a democrat comes back from visits to countries that don’t like us, they want to kill us even more?
Democrats. Arming the world…with the help of Michael Jackson. In the meantime, who are all the democrats screaming about as the ones that have to be destroyed forever more?
The Tea Party.
And that’s because the Tea Party KNOWS where the real enemy lies, and it’s not in New York.
I’m sure all the citizens of the world are celebrating the news released today that the EU, has received the Nobel Peace Prize….for keeping the peace in their countries. And as you can see by these pictures, peace reins throughout the European Union…the people are happy and content. We applaud the elites in Brussels for giving this prize to themselves, because if it was put to a vote by the people in the EU, I doubt it would have made the headlines today. One can only wonder what would happened if “war” broke out. Poor Mr. Clinton, missed it again. Congratulations to the people of Europe. You have all–just been ignored by the one percent. Don’t forget to give those elites in the EU your vote! Wait, you can’t vote for them? Oh…well then, enjoy the flowers, and remember…somebody is getting millions…and it’s not you…so keep being peaceful…who knows? Maybe they’ll get the prize again next year too…because NOBODY wants Bill Clinton to get one. I think we should make him sweat.
Am I the only one who wakes up in the morning, turns on the news and cannot believe that in this 21st century, a prominent man, a man with a Masters degree in business, a man who was a governor, and a CEO of Goldman Saks, can say with a little nod, “I simply do not know where the money is, or why the accounts have not been reconciled to date.” when asked why he lost all his client’s money?
You would have thought he lost his son’s car keys instead of $1.2 billion dollars.
In the 19th century, Jon Corzine, would have gone to prison. Just yesterday a former Senator was sent to prison for trying to sell an old Senate seat so that he could have campaign money. He didn’t HURT anyone but himself, and he’s going to jail now for 14 years.
And yet, Don Corzine takes money of hard working farmers, ranchers, and rural businesses such as grain elevators and feed mills and gambles it on Europe. He took a big risk with money he didn’t have and lost it all. He’s hurt, god knows how many people?
He knew EXACTLY what he was doing, and he got rewarded for it you can be sure.
The farmers were hit hard when they were cut off from the cash in the hedging accounts. This will affect food prices next year, as if they aren’t bad enough now. All he had to say is about that pain is, “I’m sorry.”
Tell me—how would you feel if you went to the bank to get all of your life’s savings and they told you, Well, we just don’t have it. Sorry. Next year, even more people in the world will starve, because Don Corzine “knew nothing.”
Nobody doubts for a minute that he did it on purpose…but why? To destroy the corn belt— the little farmer? To help George Soros? How much did he make from it? When he quit Goldman Saks he took over $ 400 million dollars with him.
But what do you expect? Consider his circle of—I don’t remember, I don’t know, and It depends on what your definition of IS is—friends. Haven’t we watched Bill and Hillary sit before juries and say, “I don’t recall” and “I was not aware” and “We couldn’t know” over and over and over again while being questioned about breaking the law?
Did we not just hear Eric Holder and his master Obama say the very same things about the Fast and Furious guns to Mexico scandal? None of them knew anything. “We didn’t know.”
If a bank robber said–when answering the question: “What did you do with the money you stole?” And if he said, “I’m sorry, I just don’t know.” Would the judge let him go?
They know nothing. And then, they walk away…untouched by any law.
But what do we know about this guy? We do know he spent over 63 MILLION dollars of his own money to become senator of New Jersey.
Let that sink in: $63 million to become a senator of a tiny little state.
He was on a number of committees on Banking, intelligence, Budget, energy, and natural resources. He’s for universal health care, gun control, mandatory preschool, and more taxpayer money for college. He’s for affirmative action and gay marriage. And he was Bill Clinton’s Presidential adviser, and was paying Bill $50,000 a month for some reason. He has also been to most of the Bilderberg meetings.
Stop. Bilderberg means he is in on the global engineering.
So, no matter where the 1$.2 billion dollars went to, one thing is scary. We had major floods year before last, that destroyed many farms in the Midwest. Now, whatever is left of the farmers will disappear.
The government wants to control all food, of course with Monsanto’s help.
One step at a time. Next: guns.
I don’t think the American people can just assume that our leaders are out to help us anymore. The few at the top have all been in the same small circle of power for too many years. And too many are being rewarded every time they bring down our great ecomny. There’s more to this than just pure greed.
When the collapse comes, Gerald Celente says, they will start a war. And then all of them will say:
We just didn’t know this was going to happen!
How much longer are the American people going to keep buying that same old, I know -nothing song?
I pray…not long.
This has to be a first: Just two of the seven candidates running for the Republican nomination staged their own little love-fest tonight, and Nobody Thinks there was more to this than just the “too many people on stage and we wanted to cover more issues” spin.
I missed the first half of it, but the last half sort of let it out of the bag: These two guys are going to join forces…which from their point of view, makes sense. The last line they said put it in the bag, when Herman asked Newt —
Herman: “Mr. Speaker, if you were Vice President of the United States,” Mr. Cain said, pausing for effect as the crowd roared. “What would you want the president to assign you to do first?”
Newt: “Having studied my good friend Dick Cheney, I would not go hunting,” Gingrich joked.
(I’m sure Cheney is laughing…right now..probably looking for his gun…)
Oh sure…the ending looked spontaneous, but it was meant to plant a seed and it did. In fact, Nobody would be surprised if a Herman/Newt ticket wasn’t thought of by that first debate. Remember? Herman expressed that he had great admiration for Newt.
And the seed took:
This from the New York Times:
“I thought it was great, and the punch line at the end was fantastic,” said Bob Bailie, 76, a mechanical engineer who said he love to see a Gingrich-Cain ticket. “I think those two are a great team.”
Like I said, the old—plant the seed and see how it goes game.. all the politicians do it.
Nobody was surprised though, to find out tonight that this buddy affair between Newt and Herman is nothing new. Evidently Herman worked with Newt Gingrich on Hillary Care. Newt said so, tonight.
Mmmmmmmm…What was a Pizza King guy doing working in D.C. with Newt Gingrich? Was he hand-delivering the pizza?
The American people know that the Washington elites want Romney for President. But it seems, by all accounts, both black and white think Herman is the better pick. (If you believe the polls.) They are roasting him merrily with all the “Did you do anything improper?” stuff.
(Bill Clinton could chip in his two sexual cents on this if he cared about us at all. He could at least earn some of that money we spend on him.)
Herman Cain’s problem is not his past, it’s how he is going to sound in a debate against Obama. Obama is slick. He speaks like a Harvard boy, and his style of “I’m superior because I’m educated” could be used in a debate to make Herman look like an uneducated man. The Democrats will jump all over his “colloquialism” with a vengeance.
You think they’re racist now, just wait till they get a REAL black guy to pick on. Jon Stewart will get a Pulitzer, and that’s before the election.
Newt could help Herman, by standing at his side as the “all knowing Buddha of experience.” Together they would do the two heads are better than one (along with Herman’s mama) who is destroying us routine.
It might work.
Will it happen? Newt knows he’s out, and frankly, why is he running again? Didn’t he lose last time? Should we trust someone who is THAT stupid?
Nope. This was no DEBATE…Newt said he would “sidestep the temptation to discuss Cain’s signature tax plan.”
Really? And just why is that exactly?
So…Nobody trusts Newt, and Nobody Wonders why Herman Cain trusts Newt, but I think I just found out. Newtman Caingrich— Multinational Banker Pizza Boss Man, teams up with Washington Established old Guard Man, might be coming to your home town soon.
If they both lose, they can get MORE rich doing the circuit with Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly, and continue to hide their money like all good dogs.
