The fight in Washington continues, and the Republicans seem to be caving into the lies of the current President, Barack Obama, who has viciously attacked the “tea party” members of the house, if they don’t give into his full demands. Obama blames the tea party for causing the United States to default for the first time in history. Many of us out here in nobody land, cannot believe our ears…
Because if we do default, it will be by Obama ordering the treasury not to pay the bills. (And with Dr. Lew, he has an obeying lap dog.)
Once again the democratic rule: Do the crime, blame the other guy for it.
Would a President do this impeachable act just to further destroy his enemy, the Tea Party? (In case you’re late to this, the Tea Party are the last Americans standing who want Constitutional rule.)
Impeachment is almost impossible now after the Monica Lewinsky debacle. Bill Clinton should have been impeached when he joined up with our giant military manufacturers to give China our technology. He should have been impeached for giving North Korea plutonian. They could have impeached him for lying under oath. Instead, they made the impeachment about sex, god forbid they cut off their own future campaign coffers. And by doing impeachment on such a trivial matter, they put the country through so much negative emotion about the whole process, we will more than likely never see it supported ever again.
Maybe that was the idea.
And so, with each Presidency the office itself has grown stronger, which is what the elite in the circle we call Washington and Wall Street want. it truly is about the rich against the poor—–a one party system, with one strong leader at the top.
I came upon this picture today. It was taken right before then, President George H.W. Bush, was going to send the troops into combat in the first Gulf War. He kept saying it was to save the poor helpless Kuwaitis from that mean neighbor, Saddam Hussein.
He could have told us that we had struck a deal with the Saudi’s to protect them in exchange for bases on their land, but that wouldn’t sell to us nobodies, who they consider to be better off ignorant of all that they do.
What struck me about this picture…is the expression on his face. And the grace of his hand, as if, he is a Napoleon in history, reaching out for eternity saying. “GO…FREE MY PEOPLE!…YOU ARE MY BRAVE AND HONORABLE ARMY FOR GOOD!”
In fact, the Times editor asked Diana Walker, the photographer who took this picture, to explain it.
“It looks like he’s Moses parting the waters.”
Wow. Tie clips. Just what you need when you are about to be shot.
That reminds me of all the universal corporate “honor” Christmas meetings that I’ve been to, where the bigwigs of corporations would hand out plagues for “most sales.” instead of what most people would have preferred; money.
Anyway, Diana Walker, waited all day to get that shot. The President had been surrounded the whole day by Congressmen who wanted THEIR picture taken with the President. (Speaker of the House Thomas Foley is in the bottom left hand corner walking away.)
Diana got more than a tie clip for this picture. She won the World Press Photo competition. And I’m sure the “President” saw to it that she got that reward. No doubt, this is one of his favorite pictures.
It will be interesting to see what will happen in the next few days. If the House Leaders give into the President, we will have a one-party system.
If they don’t give into the President, we will still have a one-party system, with a ‘benevolent’ dictator at the top, who if you are lucky, will excuse you from Obamacare.
The rest of you…will just have to go to into battle without that tie clip.
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.
Everyone was talking about the hypocrisy of Al Gore selling his debunked cable network to Al-Jazeera today. How could someone who is the biggest propaganda minister in the world against that nasty crude oil, sell his station to a bunch of Muslims in Qatar? (The biggest hotbed of terrorists in the Middle East.) Gore made $100 million dollars, and filed it last year so as not to pay those heavy taxes.
And this after Glenn Beck offered him a higher price.
The Blaze was reportedly told by the network that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to sources familiar with the situation.
Hillary loves Al-Jazeera, and has said so. She prefers it to American television.
America: WAKE UP! These people are owned by their greed for cash.
It’s time we looked at reality: When it comes to our top politicians, they never met a oil Sheik they didn’t like. Here’s a few facts I’m learning at the moment from, “Sleeping With the Devil.” by X-CIA agent Robert Baer.
America built Saudi Arabia’s oil business and for that they work out a nice deal with the sheiks.
“Saudi Arabia was America’s anchor in the Arab Middle East. It banked our oil under its sand. Losing it would be like losing the Federal Reserve. The Saudis own half the world’s surplus production capacity. Take the Saudi Surplus out of play and the market loses it stability and liquidity. “
But…isn’t it odd? We are beholding to the very people that want to kill us, and did you ever wonder why we don’t mine our own oil, of which we have plenty? How come decade after frustrating decade, our leaders never, ever, EVER seem to muster the votes to develop our own oil? Why would they rather put billions in Wind farms, and algae and other such nonsense, when we have oil right under our feet?
It seems ALL our past Presidents …cannot resist…getting filty rich from deals with the Saudi’s. There is a deal. You let the Saudi’s keep the monopoly…and you all will get very rich.
Let’s follow the bouncing Saudi Ball:
It started with FDR. He worked out the deal with King Ibn Sa’ud. We would get the oil out of the ground: and they would be the only supplier.
“There’s hardly a living former assistant secretary of state for the Near East: CIA director: White House staffer : or member of Congress who hadn’t ended up on the Saudi payroll in one way or another. ” says Baer.
Let’s look at the men we have voted in, that seem to have always put fortune before country:
President Richard Nixon: The CIA story goes that a sheik named Khashoggi went to see President Nixon at his home in San Clemente. When he got up to leave, he “forgot” his briefcase, which happened to be stuffed with $ 1 million in hundreds. It was never returned. ( Is it any wonder that these guys are allowed in the White House day after day?) Nixon put King Fahd up at Blair House, strictly reserved for heads of state. The White House would put out it’s hand to fund pet projects that Congress wouldn’t fund or couldn’t.
President Jimmy Carter: Prince Bandar gave a New York City benefit for Jimmy Carter’s president repository in on Atlanta, at $50.000. And Jimmy has been getting paid by the Saudi’s ever since in his various money-making groups. Jimmy is a regular PR man for anything Muslim. You can bet peanut farming was never so lucrative as being a Jewish attack dog for the Muslim Brotherhood.
President George H. W. Bush: as adviser to the famous investment firm, the Carlyle Group, George used the Presidency to open the doors to Saudi Arabia. (Not to mention, he sent our troops over to protect Kuwait) Daddy Bush was compensated for his time, reputation, and Rolodex with shares in the investments he helps to generate. The Bin Laden family had money invested in the Carlyle Group. Bandar, who by the way, owns the best piece of property in Washington on the Potomac, was so close to George H. W. Bush that he called him “Bandar Bush” and Bandar gave him $1 million towards his Presidential Library. Prince al Walid kicked in $500,000 to help launch the Geog Herbert Walker Bush Scholarship Fund at Phillips Academy, Andover . And since Saudi Arabia wanted Saddam gone, who’s NOT to say that war was for the Saudi’s?
Dick Cheney: as head of Halliburton he landed millions in engineering contracts and other lucrative deals. More like…billions.
President Bill Clinton: While Clinton was President The Qatari foreign minister wandered in and out of the White House as if he worked there. The CIA decided that the door to the Oval Office was always open to Saudi ambassador Bandar bin Sultan and not to them. While Clinton was President, Bandar built a mansion in Aspen worth $55 million, where he had lots of parties for the democratic wives of the top politicians. Clinton was good friends with Prince Turki. former head of the Saudi intelligence service, and went to school with him. Bill Clinton got $ 3 million dollars for his library, and King Fahd donated $23 million to the University of Arkansas’s new Center for Middle Eastern Studies…a “gesture of respect” for the newly elected Clinton.
And while Clinton was President, Donald Rumsfeld, Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger and George Shultz, joined as directors of Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation, and open doors to the Saudis and the Kuwait’s. They all got money from that. Kissinger got $876,000 for six months of work: Shultz took home $1.08 million. Rumsfeld $1.09 million and Powell $1.49 million.
Colin Power was Bandar’s racquetball buddy. Powell started harassing Aril Sharon in Tel Aviv. And even though Queen Haifa had made contributions to the hijackers of 9/11, Powell defended them on national TV.
And that brings us to
‘President’ Barack Hussein Obama: Before he was elected to office, a Saudi Prince told a reporter that very soon there would be a Muslim in the White House. Barack’s college education was funded by Saudi’s, it has been reported. And he has helped out American backed dictators throughout the Middle East and they have been replaced with Muslim brotherhood dictators. It is reported that the Muslim brotherhood have full access to the Oval office and drop in any time they like. No President has done more to promote the Muslims our history, going so far as to claim that the Muslims helped build America. NASA now is helping the Muslims..(see video) Benghazi proved that Obama and Hillary want to make it a crime for us to speak against Muslims which by the way, control the UN.
Our Congress remains silent.
So…While our country is being gutted…it’s also being filled up with Muslims, Mosques, and million-dollar Presidential libraries that we certainly don’t need. No matter how bad things are for the little guy, our politicians continue to reap riches…
I now have half a block of Muslim neighbors, and they hate all Americans…and even though we blocked George W. Bush from giving DUBAI our ports (How much was he going to make off of that deal, Nobody Wonders?) we won’t stop Obama from flooding our country with Islamic culture.
The deal was: Keep your mouth shut and the Saudi’s take care of you. They have as much as a trillion dollars in US banks as insurance.
I don’t know about you…but this is just the stuff that we know about. But maybe that’s the reason John Boehner keeps crying …he did it again today…he knows too much.
So Nobody Asks—- Who really Cares?
I do. The more I know about Washington, the more ashamed I am that I voted for any of them.
Fox News had a special on tonight..a tribute to X-President George Herbert Walker Bush, on his 88th birthday, which is Tuesday. It was so lovingly produced that one can only suppose the powerful Bush family and Karl Rove did it up special for the old guy.
Somewhere in the “tribute” they accorded George H.W. Bush’s loss to Bill Clinton due to Ross Perot, but many true conservatives like me, were shocked at the time, to see Ross lose to Bush, who was by all accounts, not much more memorable than the innocuous Gerald Ford.
Daddy Bush has the personality of a friendly ferret, but he had vast political connections, thanks to Prescott Bush…a subject of many books.
When Bush ran, he was elected primarily on the coat wings of Ronald Reagan, who was so beloved, that if “Ronnie” (As Nancy so endearingly called him) had told us all to vote for Yoko Ono, we probably would have.(On condition that she wouldn’t sing.)
I don’t remember anybody really getting excited about 41. He talked with an annoying nasal, reprimanding voice, and was nothing like the dynamic Reagan. To me he looked more like an insurance salesman. He was pretty boring, until ..Desert Storm.
When Daddy Bush came on TV and claimed our “victory” over Saddam, I was in a bar, and I was the ONLY person in that bar who was not cheering at the sight of the bombers flying in celebration. I thought it all a big show for Bush. Sure, the Bush’s always give the credit to the little guy—(Unlike the ego currently in the White House) but don’t think for a minute that they aren’t trying to write stupendous history for themselves. Like the movie stars, they pay people to work on their “brand.”
Nobody was thinking at the time, how hard WAS it to repeal some little country like Iraq? Reagan had left him with a great military. I hated the way Bush acted as if he had gone and saved a poor little defenseless country—even if he did.
Vietnam, left my generation war weary…and I was one of those people who could not see why any of our leaders go around the world “defending” anyone. …unless of course it’s Britain.
But Desert Storm was sold the way wars are always sold..with noble platitudes…instead of what they are mostly about: protecting U.S. interests, and in that case, it really was about oil, (BP) which by the way, Bush knew a lot about having become a millionaire in the oil business by the time he was 40.
We had a deal with the Saudis Kings. We protect them, they supply us…and in return they keep the OPEC prices reasonable. That was okay— so why not say so? (Wouldn’t you like to know what REALLY goes on behind closed door?)
Daddy Bush always kept that “Aw…sucks, I’m just a little old country boy at heart” game face on. (Which his son mastered with much better technique) But as the years go by, in hindsight…it was Daddy Bush that took us down that “New World Order” road of globalization, which has done untold damage to our country.
When George H.W. was running for President, they didn’t even mention his past hardly at all. All America needed to know was that he was going to carry on Reagan’s policies. Dukakis was weaker than John McCain—he couldn’t lose. And unlike Obama, Daddy Bush was almost overqualified to be President.
Tell me: How many men in the world in one lifetime hold so many top positions before he became President? He was an ambassador to the United Nations, the Chairman of the Republican National Committee, U.S. envoy to China, Director of the CIA, Head of the International Bank, Director of the Foreign Council of Relations, Vice President, then President.
It was the Bush family who pushed us headlong into NAFTA.
Bush’s administration, along with the Progressive Conservative Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, spearheaded the negotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which would eliminate the majority of tariffs on products traded among the United States, Canada, and Mexico, to encourage trade amongst the countries. The treaty also restricts patents, copyrights, and trademarks, and outlines the removal of investment restrictions among the three countries.
You can thank your rotten bananas for that one.
Perot TRIED to warn the American people what would happen to us if we got into NAFTA. Jobs would exit the U.S. like water pouring out of a sieve he said, and he was right. An army of black helicopters shut him up.
What is terribly sad about all this, is we are coming right back into the Bush dynasty again…which is the Rockefeller Rhino Club— “One World Government” party that is running the show. There are a handful of globalists at the top, and they never leave the control. Mitt might be in the White House, but in the background will be the Bush family. Like Putin…waiting for the day when they get the Presidency again.(Jeb?) And then Hillary in 2016? And Obama will go..where…to the United Nations?
And he’s the worst of them all. (Obama)
(Does anyone else want to GET OFF THIS NEW WORLD ORDER GLOBAL BOAT of EGO NUTJOBS!? AHHHHHHHHHHH!)
At the end of the tribute tonight, it was obvious that the Bush family wanted Daddy’s Bush’s legacy to be getting people to “serve”..They were proud that Bush 41 had gotten 100 million people to “volunteer” their time serving other people.
(That’s his Legacy?)
Jimmy Carter would be proud….Karl Marx would be proud: Obama would be proud…Bob Dylan would be proud…
Why mention this at all? Wait for it…wait for it…
There will be a day when mandatory “service” will be required of all American citizens, and BOTH heads of both parties will be behind it. Now…be good little boys and girls and volunteer to help your neighbor…or else.
Come on Joyanna, that’s will NEVER happen…
Well… did you know that the real reason Obama made 9/11 a “day of service” is because an X President named George Herbert Walker Bush, wanted it?
Gee…why didn’t Obama tell us that? (Who RUNS these people? )
The only “service” we should be giving on 9/11 is our humble service to the families who lost loved ones that day.
It’s about time our Presidents started “serving ” the American people.
ALL of them.
On Tuesday, there might be alot obout Daddy Bush’s great legacy…and feel free to celebrate a President who by all accounts, was better than any democrat…go ahead…but THIS Nobody is holding out for the 4th.
