It is a man-made disaster. … That’s the tragedy of California, because of liberal environmentalists’ insistence — despite the fact that California has suffered from droughts for millennia, liberal environmentalists have prevented the building of a single new reservoir or a single new water conveyance system over decades during a period in which California’s population has doubled.”–Carly Fiorina
It’s just another day in California…thousands of acres of trees being destroyed, thousands of animals of all kinds dying. And thousands of people will lose their homes to fires…all throughout the West. Add to that, thousands of articles are being written blaming the destruction of so much beauty on global warming. Man, is evil according them–and the cause.
Well I have to agree. There ARE men that are causing this, but it’s not the dumb nobody like you and me driving our SUV’s, it’s the U.S. Government, thank you very much.
Yes, what has our lovely ‘government” done for us here? Forget the illegals for a moment –who more than one has started fires just to get some extra work…and left trash all over the Southwest….
I was thinking about the ONE argument that all the GOP Rino’s have been saying—- WHY Donald Trump cannot win…
They are all repeating like parrots in prostitutes parlor: He has no government experience…they say.
Rick Perry is especially upset about that.
Wow. Instead of having me review what seems to many of us a priceless advantage—I thought I’d post this excellent explanation of what happens when government gets involved with the environment from the last REAL reporter for the Rolling Stone Magazine: P.J. O’Rourke. P.J. lays out succinctly how our government’s interfering with the environment has caused the country to fall apart faster than normally allowed.
While the rest of America was hugging trees, the U.S. Forest Service was selling them at throwaway prices and allowing clear cutting in places where ecological damage would be extreme and reforestation almost impossible.
The Bureau of Reclamation was damming rivers, turning scenic canyons into motorboat parking lots, and leaving salmon with no place to have sex. the electricity produced by these dams and the water collected behind them were sold at below market prices permitting cites to grow where cities shouldn’t and allowing farmers to irrigate land they oughtn’t. The land suffered salinization: The cities trembled, burned, and got covered in mudslides. And disaster relief was paid with our tax dollars.
The Department of Defense used more of those tax dollars to dump hazardous wastes on public land. There are between five and ten thousand federal property dump sites. Having paid for them once, we’ll pay for them again. In September 1991 the New York Times estimated the cleanup costs will be between 75 and 250 billion dollars.
Meanwhile the Army Corps of Engineers was traipsing around draining wetlands and mopping up flood plains so that if we’re ever invaded, our enemies won’t get their feet wet.
And the Bureau of Land Management was abetting the degradation of thousands of acres of range land by leasing grazing rights to ranchers dirt cheap, dirt being about all that would be left when the subsidized cattle got done hovering welfare grass.
And, because of various laws passed by idiot Congress, the only way for the Forest Service to become richer and more powerful is to cut the trees it grows. When the Forest Service manages a forest for recreational purposes, the recreational fees go to the U.S. Treasury. But the Forest Service gets to keep a portion of revenue from logging and gets appropriations from Congress to manage land that’s logged. In the Tongass National Forest in Alaska, it cost the Forest Service $100 in access roads, environmental impact studies, and so for the to get a tree ready to be cut. The tree then sells for $2. In the real world this would be a $98 dollar net loss. But of the Forest Service its a $102 gain to the budget.
The DOA, (Department of Agriculture) has been paying crop subsidies since 1927. The subsides are production based. the more you grow of something nobody wants, the more the government pays you for growing it.
The government has another method of keeping food prices high, through acreage reduction programs. The DOA culture gives you cash for staying in bed and planting nothing. But in order to get paid for not farming a piece of land, yon have to prove the you used to farm it. So woods were cleared and swamps were drained anyway, to get money off leaving them alone later.
Yes, good old Uncle Sam can destroy more of the physical beauty of America than any rush hour L.A. freeway daily drive to work. Add to that the politicians and their corporate jet setting around the globe, and you have a government who is just salivating to destroy the REST of America, and the globe, and they know how! They’ve been doing it for years.
All they need is every country getting on board. So little time! The Planet MUST be saved! It will cost trillions!
So, all those governors who claim to have superior experience because they have been a governor, Senator, etc….ask yourself: Is that REALLY want we want? MORE politicians? Politicians who set up money-making environment scams in order to get MORE money to fix the environmental problems they cause?
Obama is on the road to putting up Windmills all over the country. The people who mourn for one Lion, could care less about millions of dead birds.
The only thing that will save the planet is…make all politicians extinct…before they kill all life on earth.
Maybe we should make them all have windmills in their back yards.
Let THEM pick up the dead birds.
My husband and I watched The Da Vinci Code again tonight. It’s been a while since I read the book, but I remember being very suspicious of the timing. Basically, in the book, the divinity of Christ is refuted by saying that it was the church that fueled the divinity story, hiding the fact that Jesus was just a man, and he died, and left Mary Madeline with kids….who had descendants who are protected by very rich and sick people, who hang out in Scotland. Probably because Oxford likes to claim to be the top of the heap when it comes to humanity.
Okay. That part becomes more believable every day. The one thought that I keep thinking is: What if both stories were invented and are really all about retaining power for one group or another? The Church needed a savior, the Illuminati that rule the world, need a bloodline to give themselves the “Right” to rule everybody else…I know. Get a life Joyanna.
You can think the story is just a fantastic tale, but then again….when you listen to the current wacky Pope…who seems completely involved with world leaders and mostly communists one, you do start to hope…
that Jesus is real and he visits the Pope sometime very soon. I think the Pope is overdue for some kind of religious knock in the head. I would settle for a lighting bolt.
And speaking of Popes…
“He has a blonde, busty mistress, and she’s been code named Energizer by agents. This is unofficially, but that is what they call her…She comes in to the Chappaqua [NY] home whenever Hillary leaves. The details coordinate to make sure they don’t cross paths. She, unlike Hillary, is very nice to the agents. She’ll bring cookies.”
“Agents say that it’s a business relationship. It’s not a marriage at all. It’s a total fake, like everything else about Hillary. It’s just a big show and a scam.”
Nobody Knows how this couple stays in power, and Nobody Knows when the rest of America is going to say, “HEY..Hillary! Get a divorce! You call yourself a feminist? You think WE don’t know that you just keep him around because you can’t get elected without him?
But Hillary sex life is our least concern, Rudy Giuliani has been bold enough to say that Hillary in his opinion should be examined for at least 5 crimes:
I’m surprised to hear Giuliani say this, but Nobody Knows if it is a sign of Hillary and Bill losing power…in their own party….maybe they have just committed so many crimes, it’s only a matter of time before all the rats jump off the Clinton titanic. People used to be scared to say anything against them. Trump truly IS inspiring others.
And speaking of democrats committing crimes…
What kind of name is Chaka Fattah? Who would vote such a person into office? It seems Philadelphia did, and now, in true democratic form, Chaka has been found to be involved with spending public money on himself and his family.
A 29-count indictment returned Wednesday accuses the 11th-term Philadelphia Democrat of misusing hundreds of thousands of dollars of federal, charitable and campaign funds. Indicted U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah (SHAW’-kah fa-TAH’) says he’s never been involved in wrongdoing, unlawful activity or misappropriation of government funds.
The best part of the story?
Pelosi tells reporters “This is a very sad, sad day” Good Nancy. We WANT you to suffer.
Nancy doesn’t know a sad day…our sad, sad day was when she said: “We have to pass Obamacare so that we can know what is in it!”
Which means, there is one thing we DO know.
Nobody Gets Email

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.
It’s hard to comprehend all this guy has gotten away with. Any other president would have been impeached! What in God’s name is wrong with our government that they allow this guy carte blanch? It absolutely boggles the mind!
As you know, I write a lot about the destruction of the middle class here in St. Louis. So many malls closed: Ford…gone to Mexico. Chrysler plant…gone, Anheuser Busch sold to an international company. The ripple down effect has been devastating…and so it’s no wonder Trump is leading…if the rest of the country looks like St. Louis, then it will TAKE a businessman to stop the bleeding.
The one place we still have here is Boeing, which was once three times as big, and if you pass the place, it looks like a bomb hit it. The outside fountains have not been redone since the 1950’s. I’m sure those fountains hold a lot of summer fun for rats.
Right across the street from Boeing was a Chinese restaurant, which was sold to another Chinese man who sold big, humongous, outdoor stone statues. You know, like fountains, pagodas’, swans, dragons…..some of them were really beautiful, but most of the people in the area could not afford them. And there were HUNDREDS of these statues. I couldn’t understand how they could stay in business because the statues stood there for years., and years.
I was told, they got busted. They didn’t HAVE to sell those statues. They were moving drugs from China to St. Louis inside them…which explains the high rate of heroin addiction in St. Louis.
Evidently this went on for decades. Right across the street was Boeing Headquarters, and the Ford plant (Now gone)….The police department was right down the street.
TELL me they didn’t know about this. And besides, a Chinese business right across the street from Boeing? No red flags there? They stayed there throughout George W. Bush’s presidency, and were only closed down about a year ago.
The nearest mall by this business is almost closed down too, because I just learned, most of the shops in that mall were illegals from foreign countries, who were no doubt, were not paying ANY taxes. Some of the more reputable companies in that mall must have sued somebody, because there was a big raid, and all of THEM were busted and had to close shop. This big, huge mall, built with the loving promise that they wouldn’t have to pay taxes for 10 years, is now, a ghost town save a few vitamins stores, and a Bed, Bath and Beyond.
And so goes our country.
Does anybody care? Does Jeb Bush? Does Hillary Clinton?
No, but Nobody does. And that’s why people like me, like Trump. We have LIVED and watched the economic destruction done by the politicians of both parties. We have seen the drug use in our schools. We have witnessed the redistribution of wealth from the whites to the blacks, with nothing to show for it.
We ARE angry.
By the way, Glenn Beck has banned Trump from his radio show…but I bet Hillary isn’t banned.
If Donald Trump is as bad as Glenn says, he will bury himself. It’s stupid move on Glenn’s part. But Glenn has his own ego as this moves proves.
BANNING him shows the fact that Glenn does NOT practice what he preaches: Liberty. Justice. Fair place. Democracy.
Yes world…She is a Sherman Tank. She is tough. A bulldog of a woman. Don’t believe me? Look at that face. Loretta Lynch, it going to prove that woman can be bad-ass.
Our new Attorney General is going to go after the criminals, not here in the United States but—
…in World Soccer.
Nobody Wonders why she isn’t going after the criminals in the IRS, our veterans administration, our state department, or the White House? And…how about the Clintons?
No…world soccer. THAT’s where the corruption is most dangerous.
By the way…when did the Attorney General’s job become policing the rest of the world?
Loretta…let it be known that international soccer, that subject of corruption that has been on EVERY American’s hearts, minds, and lips, had to be cleaned up. To the Obama administration this is MUCH more important. After all, he really can’t go after ISIS so the next best thing is…soccer.
May 27, 2015 Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department unsealed a 47-count indictment Wednesday morning laden with racketeering, corruption, and conspiracy charges against 14 defendants associated with FIFA, the world soccer association, and international soccer organizations.
“Many of the individuals and organizations we will describe today were entrusted with keeping soccer open and accessible to all,” she said. “They were expected to uphold the rules that keep soccer honest and to protect the integrity of the game. Instead they corrupted the business of worldwide soccer to serve their interests and to enrich themselves.”
“The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted both abroad and here in the United States,” Lynch said in a statement. “It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks. And it has profoundly harmed a multitude of victims, from the youth leagues and developing countries that should benefit from the revenue generated by the commercial rights these organizations hold, to the fans at home and throughout the world whose support for the game makes those rights valuable.”
“corruption that is rampart, systemic, and deep rooted.”
Okay, You can’t make this up. Our new Attorney General is outraged that the youth soccer leagues all over the world have been hurt.
Can I get a vowel here? Are pigs flying in the streets of Pennsylvania Ave? Is April fool’s day now been moved onto our daily calendar? Have predatory worms started talking to Joe Biden?
Did someone find a fish sucking bananas in Lincoln’s bedroom? Is the sun still yellow?
Is it me? Is the suggested fact that soccer children are suffering around the world not quite the same as a veteran dying in the parking lot of a veterans hospital in our own country because nobody would come out and pick him up? Our veterans are dying because the VA is so corrupt, and yet nothing, MS Lynch?
Not to mention, did any of those boys on Wall Street go to jail?
How about prosecuting some of them?
Loretta is concerned that youth international soccer…is in danger. It’s right up there with climate change.
The indictment alleges that marketing executives paid out $150 million in kickbacks and bribes in order to secure rights to major soccer tournaments.
Yes, and HOW many millions in kickbacks did the Clinton’s get just this year alone?
To prove she means business, our new Attorney General told everyone that some of these peoples used his various position in international soccer for “personal gain.”
Is that bacon fat in the kitchen smoking yet?
And just when you think that Al Gore might have real competition in the Ozone Wonderland of Black Rabbit holes, another one of our leaders, FBI Director, James Comey, said, and I quote”
“You will be held accountable for that corruption. Nobody is above or beyond the law.”
Since WHEN does anybody in our government hold anybody accountable for corruption? You CANNOT make this stuff up.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Why didn’t Eric Holder grab this before he left? This is good stuff. I mean, if you want to get points with the American public, be a tough gangbuster. Go after the bad guys, go after foreign bad guys. Go after Middle Eastern bad guys. Go after Swiss bad guys. This would have made Holder a popular guy. And now Loretta, this is a bouquet he gave her.
She comes in and she gets a great case to break.
A great case? How much are we paying this lady?
So, what’s in this for Obama and his Lynch? Some of that “international” money bag? Are they joining the Clinton way of bribes and extortion?
Nobody Wins, when the United States President and his Attorney General are more concerned about kids little league foreign soccer camps, than the be-headings of Christians.
Ms Alice Lynch has fallen down the rabbit hole of absurdity. It’s the same old “Keep your eye over here, while the REAL corruption is happening right in front of you.”
Loretta Lynch—paving the way for the safe use of …a safe soccer ball world.
Yes, I’m sure of it. Pigs are flying. Ever since Congress impeached Bill Clinton for grouping an intern instead of the more serious crime of giving North Korea plutonium, we have all been on a travel log to never, never, never, never, land of insanity.
Soccer. Who knew we were in so much danger?
Hillary said today that the deck is stacked in favor of the top. A CEO in America, she said, makes 300 times more than his employees.
She wants to “reshuffle” that deck. This is an impossible task.
First, you have to HAVE a deck to shuffle. We don’t have many left.
Judge Napolitano, in his book It Is Dangerous to be Right When the Government Is Wrong, explains why…why America lost all her decks—It’s because of government regulations.
All regulations violate property rights in some way or another. Tariffs, excise taxes, duties, and sales taxes violate the property rights of the sellers of the goods because the price for their goods is raised, making them less competitive and less profitable: as well the buyers of these goods are forced into paying higher prices for goods, thus paring with more money than would have been the case had these regulation not been in place.
The government decides one day that it is going to charge you a widget licensing fee of one hundred thousand dollars per year for the privilege of being allowed to use your land how you wanted to, this not only decreases the value of your factory since there is a hefty cost imposed on anyone who wishes to use it, but it also is a taking of one hundred thousand dollars of your property every year.
Let’s say then the government says you have to hire union workers. Now to make widgets you must give workers higher wages, bigger benefit packages, longer vacation times, shorter working hours and better pension for retirement. And if they demand you deal with a certain union giving the union greater power for bargaining in the future. And you are forced to guarantee that you will never use improved machinery or roots that could produce widgets faster and more efficiently tan any of the current union workers because then they would be out of a job.
To make matters worse, your main widget producing competitor for Asia has an unregulated widget factory comprised of only robots that are producing the cheapens and highest quality widget in the world. Now your business is regulated to bankruptcy. And this is precisely when the government will swoop in to bail out your creditors., kick you out of the management office, purchase your business and factory for pennies on the dollar, and transfer ownership of it to your union workers– the UAW. I mean the UWW.
Nobody Wonders what percentage of wages Hillary makes compared to her hairdresser. I bet it’s more than 300 times. And Hillary is a BIG fan of government regulations.
Keeping people poor can get you BIG government money. Follow the money, as the old saying goes, and you will find the real reason for most everything.
The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.
President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.
And let’s not leave out the big money everybody is getting in Ferguson, including the lawyers…
Ferguson, Missouri, is paying an attorney $1,335 an hour to help the St. Louis suburb negotiate and possibly litigated reforms pressed by the Justice Department since Michael Brown’s shooting death by a police officer there last summer, according to a newspaper report.
The Ferguson City Council unanimously decided behind closed doors in March to hire Dan K. Webb of suburban Chicago at an hourly rate that Missouri Lawyers Weekly, a legal publication, said is nearly double Missouri’s highest attorney billing rate last year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. That tab doesn’t include the expenses and fees of any lawyers or paralegals in Webb’s firm who may work on the case.
Really? Over a thousand an hour? Even astronauts don’t make that kind of money.
When politicians can grant big wades of taxpayers money to people in dire “need” then the more poor people in need we have, the more money the politicians can hand out to their friends. If that isn’t a big incentive to keep everybody poor, I don’t know what is.
Race baiting is BIG business now.
Is it any wonder Jesse Jackson has visited Obama in the White House more than any other person?
Come on. Come on. COME on!
I don’t get it. Today it was revealed by the New York Times no less, that the Clinton’s had received big piles of money for basically selling U.S. uranium to Russia, giving RUSSIA control of the world uranium market, which Putin has always wanted.
That explains the red button.
The Clinton’s didn’t report that money, but somebody has finally gotten proof:
From the New York Times:
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, (Which Bill Clinton helped broker) the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clinton’s, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
Why is anyone surprised? For a long time I’ve been claiming, that although there is no proof that Presidents are receiving millions from foreign governments (and that would also include the Bushes) unless you have “proof” you can never accuse.
But when Bill Clinton did the very same thing, nobody but a few at Newsmax covered it.
Remember, Bill Clinton gave China the ability to be able to launch nukes at us, AND helped North Korea nuke up. He should have been impeached for that and put in a jail cell with Monica’s blue dress to hug.
From Year of the Rat:
In return, the Clinton-Gore team signed waivers allowing these companies to transfer our most sensitive satellite (i.e., missile launching) technology to Red China, obliterating the safety margin and technological edge we previously had on our sworn and potential enemies. (China then transferred sensitive U.S. technology to Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea.)
Nobody Thinks, that the Clintons have been selling U.S. assets for YEARS…and everybody just let them get by with it, because we do live in a oligarchy. And while us nobodies think the NSA is all about spying on us, think what dirt it gives to the powerful for the purpose of blackmail and extortion of their enemies?
Somebody very powerful doesn’t want Hillary to be President.
And the nobodies of the world…just sit back…and wonder.—-What are they selling off next? Air Force One?
Is that why they are making five more of them.?
Today was tax day, April 15. I don’t know about you, but if you know the facts about how rigged the tax system is, what Hillary Clinton says is true: The super rich really don’t have to pay taxes. Hillary has no plans to stop this great wealth of billionaires that are covering the globe, because she is one of them, but she knows that just to say it, will get a lot of head shakes, and votes.
Because it’s true. The rich hide their assets in offshore accounts and pay no taxes, and you can be sure that includes Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Or, they merge their assets like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet in a ‘foundation’ where no government can touch it. They pay no income tax because all their money is from dividends.
The World’s Richest Hide $31 Trillion Dollars to Avoid Taxes
Is it any wonder they own islands?
As corporate earnings season begins in earnest, the advocacy group Citizens for Tax Justice has released a report detailing 15 Fortune 500 companies that don’t pay any taxes.
The list includes CBS, General Electric, Interpublic Group, JetBlue Airways, Mattel, Owens Corning, PG&E, Pepco Holdings, Priceline.com, Prudential Financial, Qualcomm, Ryder System, Time Warner, Weyerhaeuser and Xerox.
As a whole, the 15 companies paid no federal income tax on $23 billion in profits in 2014, and they paid almost no federal income tax on $107 billion in profits during the past five years. All but two received federal tax rebates in 2014, and almost all paid exceedingly low rates over five years.
Last year Obama collected more money from the sinking middle class than has ever been collected in history. So why not take Air Force One out every day?
It’s known now to most everybody that it’s the people who are NOT billionaires are paying for the very rich.
On average, every filer who fills out a 1040 individual income tax form would need to pay an additional $1,259 in taxes to make up for the revenue lost.
And it’s not just the billionaires that are ripping us all off, it’s the IRS who is handing out tax refunds like candy to illegal’s who get it by fraud.
A report by the Inspector General found that some 2 million illegal immigrants have been receiving large tax refunds by pretending that numerous dependents live with them … when, in fact, most of the dependents live in Mexico and have never lived in the United States.
The ‘left’ wants the rich to pay more…but the “rich” is not them and their brilliance friends, oh noooooo it’s the guy who makes $52,000. You’re the rich one. The average Joe.
And yet, the upcoming candidates will run on changing the tax code.
Think: Do you REALLY think that is going to happen in our lifetimes?
Remember when we found out that Obama’s Secret Service had been partying with prostitutes in South America? Obama was…Hey, how did that happen, huh?
This morning, Congress put on a good show of being appalled that the head of the DEA, Michelle Leonhart, was not as appalled as they were on the report that DEA agents have been partying with prostitutes on the taxpayers dime down in Columbia….for it seems, many many years.
That report said 10 agents – an assistant regional director and nine special agents – had alleged sex parties on government-leased property and used taxpayer money to pay for the prostitutes. After investigation, seven of the agents admitted attending the parties and were suspended for between two and 10 days, the earlier report said.
What was even more surprising is that Michelle, the head of the DEA, cannot fire any of those guys. You see, she said, that was the responsibility of two guys below her. But..she DID send out a memo saying that hiring prostitutes was not a good thing, and please don’t do it. But she can’t fire anyone. A few of them got a ten-day suspension with pay. She couldn’t even tell Congress IF they should be fired.
It seems SHE has been giving money to the Colombian National police, who in turn bought prostitutes for the DEA agents. But wait! It gets better.
The drug cartels were giving the police money too, to pay for prostitutes. Somebody is double dipping, and no, no nobody knows how young these girls were.
The Congressmen then realized that you could be fired for saying something “sexist” in your office, but not for hiring prostitutes with taxpayer money and partying with drug cartels.
Good to know.
What should the Congress do? Well, it’s obvious to us, Michelle Leonhart should be fired immediately.
They can’t do that.
“In many of these cases, recommended punishments were reduced without explanation,” the report states. “The internal report does not discuss punishments for DEA supervisors who may have known about these allegations and failed to report them.”
She can’t be fired by anyone….unless it’s done by Obama. (All roads lead back to the same source, have you notice a pattern here?)
I don’t know about you. but I want my money back. If we are going to pay for prostitutes for the DEA, it might as well go to American prostitutes.
What kind of country is this?
“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy” …James Madison.
This week, I have been reading a chapter in Judge Napolitano’s book, “It Is Dangerous to Be Right When The Government Is Wrong”
The chapter is called, “War…War…What is it good for?”
According to the Judge, most of our wars were started by falsehoods from our Presidents. FDR wanted a way to get into the war with Hilter …but he had promised the American people before his election, that he would stay out of it.
“I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again,. Your boys are not going to be sent to any foreign wars.”
His plan? Provoke the Japanese navy into killing American sailors. On September 27th 1940, Japan, Germany, and Italy entered into a mutual assistance treaty called the Tripartite Pact. The Pact required the thee nations to come to each other’s aid and protection if one of the others in the Pat was attacked. Germany would then come to Japans assistance.
Voila! We are in.
FDR responded to Churchill’s please to enter the war,
FDR wanted to provoke Japan, and when Admiral James O. Richardson commander in chief of the U.S. Fleet voiced objection, FDR fired him.
“I don’t mind losing one or two cruisers, (Said FDR) but do not take a chance on losing five or six.”
Keep in mind, two lost cruisers equal the deaths of 1,800 men.
Remember that before Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government began marshalling its resources in preparation for a full scale war, including the purchase of $3.5 billion worth of military supplies from automobile plants alone.
FDR’s lie to enter World War II was not the first time a president lied to rally support for war, nor will it be the last.
To garner American support for the ‘impending” Spanish American War, President William McKinley touted the sinking of the USS Maine. McKinley claimed a Spanish mine caused the ships destruction, when in reality the ship’s American captain determined that a coal bin explosion was the cause of the Maine’s sinking.
And how can we forget the WMD’s that weren’t in Iraq?
The truth is, that the ultimate crisis, that war, is a dear friend of the state. In fact, the government uses war as the ultimate means to expand its own power, size and scope. It pounces on the political opportunity to make a grab of power and to do things it does not have the constitutional power to do.
General Smedley Darlington Butler, one of the most lauded marines in U.S. history, said: War is a Racket:
In the World War a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,00 mew millionaires and billionaires were made in he United States during ht World war. And what is this bill? This bell renders a horrible accounting. Newly place gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken heart and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attending miseries. Backbreaking taxation for generations and generations.
And if you go by history, than Obama is gearing the whole world up for World War III…all the time acting as if he is preventing it.
If you buy Obama’s claim on this day, that he is making the world more peaceful today by giving the Iranians the power to keep their nuclear reactors, than I have a castle that John Kerry used to live in that you can have for one hundred dollars.
War…it’s coming. And Obama has been preparing for his ultimate power grab…
Right here at home for the last six years.
At least–that’s what will happen if history is repeated. The New Deal, is just the same as the old deal.
NOTE: This was my afternoon post, and RIGHT after Hillary’s speech, when I was about to press the publish button, the server went down…not just mine, everybody’s. Unlike Hillary, I don’t have my own.
So…here it is, although late, remember—I started it before her speech…
Hillary is making us wait…the whole world must wait…to hear her say how she is turning over her emails to the world…but wait. She is very busy at the United Nations…she is THE most important woman in the world…so we must…WAIT.
In the meantime she made sure that everyone knew her theme song: I am woman, hear me roar! Or bark. Or demand. Or do whatever I want. Chelsea wrote a real fluff piece on Huffington Post about women’s issues, and so the black race card will be dropped and the women’s abuse card will be used in its place.
And Hillary launched her Presidency today…at the U.N. She just didn’t announce it, because she doesn’t have to.
Like I said, Hillary was making the world wait for her press conference—-we got camera shots of her listening to other women and nodding her head, as IF it was more important to listen to women, then be where she promised to be: At her staged press conference. …until Judge Napolitano came on FOX and said her crime was a felony. She instantly got up and starting walking…I wonder….who whispered in her little ear.
Okay…I’m waiting…I’m waiting…we are waiting…we are waiting…WAIT…BREAKING NEWS: it’s going to cost the taxpayers millions to just see her emails! HA!
Why didn’t the FBI just go into her house, grab that server, and tell her to stand down?
Update: Here she comes…looking like …Queen Mao in that grey Mao looking suit. What the heck is she wearing? Wait..she is trying desperately to control WHO gets to ask her questions…so what did she say? Let’s listen:
1. You know, I didn’t want to be bothered having to carry around two phones. (She could have taken a minute and set up two difference email accounts…on her ONE phone. Duh.) It was just so simple for me to have just one.
- Whoever I emailed in the government has a copy, so what’s your beef?
- I’m not as good as lying as Obama because I can’t look at the camera with my eyes wide open and lie. I am just going to stare at this guy’s shoes in front of me…and lie, and lie, and then pucker up with a big planted fake smile! Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
- I broke no laws, and you can see my emails that I’ve put out there—- having paid a number of people to clean them up for me and make me look really smart and you can see them.
- Hey, it was my husband’s private email server, so god KNOWS you will not be getting that server any time soon. And you CAN’T take a President’s server! It’s guarded night and day by the Secret Service! He just lets me use it.
- You can all %*%& off, I am Mao-Mao. Madame Mao-Mao. Don’t forget it. So I broke the law…what are YOU going to do about it?
And so the questions come: What emails did she already delete? Those discussions about Benghazi with the President? The money passed on to you by foreign leaders? Bill’s many girlfriends under the age of 12? What Obama was REALLY doing the night of Benghazi. Those emails are gone
And can she be more obnoxiously arrogant in her Madame Mao-Mao pants suit?
One more thing: Isn’t is a BIG coincidence that Jeb Bush’s first act when coming out as a contender for the Presidency was…He released all his emails. Nobody, NOBODY, had asked for them. We all went…HUH? What’s THAT all about?
Now we know. Jeb knew what was going to happen very soon…to Hillary.
Leave it to Sarah Palin to get the last word in, bless her heart:
“As Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary Clinton used private email accounts on a privately maintained server 100 percent of the time for 100 percent government business,” Palin noted. “That’s unethical, no doubt illegal, and flies in the face of all claims of transparency. Hillary Clinton and her staff weren’t trying to be in compliance with the law; they were skirting it altogether. ” That’s all she wrote: Guilty as charged.
I think Congress should exempt Snowden, bring him back home to America, and give him Hillary’s server.
After all..I’m SURE we paid for it.
ONE LAST NOTE: It’s now 10 pm. and Mark Levine on the radio just said it was her Mao suit. :) Great minds think alike.
Internet censorship has already begun at my house.
Fox news, yesterday AND today, are just blanked on my cable TV. I can get all other 100 channels, but FOX news is blanked out completely. It happens only during certain subjects are being discussed.
For five to ten minutes at a time. The ads come on, and it’s being blanked out when the subject is Obama or Israel.
Is this happening to anyone else? They didn’t blank out Netanyahu’s speech though. I would say it was a technical problem but WHY are all the other stations not effected?
It’s can’t hurt your brand when one of the richest men in the world basically gives their endorsement to you with a smile. Of course, If Hillary becomes President, then the Keystone pipeline will remain just a republican dream, and Buffets trains, will keep the money flowing.
In the meantime, he wants us all to believe that he lives on Coke and ice cream…so we will all run out and buy Coke and Dairy Queen.
AND, if you, like many Americans, watched the 13 episodes of this year’s season of House of Cards, you will see the perfect timing for Hillary to announce her candidacy.
Next year, going down to the wire, the next season of House of Cards will have Clare Underwood going after the office of the Presidency, in which she will lift woman’s wages, get all American jobs, give gays more rights, and become the format for which all Americans will run to the voting booths and vote for Hillary!
