For a change…instead of my usual Nobody musing on history, I could not pass up these wonderful historical pictures sent to me by my friend Mona…while I can’t post them all, I picked out the ones that I thought really struck me as being pertinent to my nobody mind, and hopefully yours! See the rest of the pictures ….
Thanks to Mona, and enjoy!
When you pour sugar on your morning breakfast cereal, do you feel like a racist?
Somebody forgot to tell Al Sharpton.
From A History of the American People:
The Portuguese entered the slave trade in the mid 15th century, took it over and, in the process, transformed it into something more impersonal, and horrible, than it had been either in antiquity or medieval Africa. The new Portuguese colony of Madeira became the center of a sugar industry, which soon made itself the largest supplier of western Europe. The first sugar mill, worked by slaves, was erected in Madera in 1452. This cash industry, was so successful that the Portuguese soon began laying out fields for sugar cane on the Biafran Islands, off the African coast. As the sugar industry expanded, salves began to be numbered in thousands
The Portuguese were soon selling African slaves to the Spanish, who, following the example in Madeira, occupied the Canaries and began to grow cane and mill sugar there too.
Next time I see a black person eating a snickers bar, I’m going to shout at them:” In honor of you ancestors… DON’T EAT THAT!”
So, slaves became a big business all because of the demand for sugar. And now, sugar makes slaves of us all. Nothing can bring me to my knees quicker than a freshly baked glaze doughnut.
Nobody talks about Portugal anymore. In fact, it’s been downhill for that country since the 15th century. Tell me, what is Portugal good for besides being hard to locate on a map?
If blacks want to try to get reparations for what happened to them so long ago, then they should take it up with the Portuguese…they started it.
Yes, it was the Portuguesa merchants that made slavery the vast institution that it became. (To be fair, the Muslims had more slaves, but you didn’t hear it from me.)
Remember that next time you hear anyone claim that America is the most racist nation on the planet.
America got RID of her slaves…but…for better or worse, we are still slobbering slaves to that little crystal sweet heaven in a spoon…called sugar. Let’s hope the Chinese workers making all those Apple phones get their fair share.
Suffice it to say, the world seems to be falling apart before our eyes, and America is at her weakest. I’m having a hard time watching the news lately with so few uplifting stories, how about you?
The Confederate states had a population of 5,440,467 whites and 3,521,111 slaves. A million of the white men served and 300,000 were killed.
The Union had a population of 18,936,579 and another 2,589,533 on the border states: 429,401 then slaves of whom over 100,000 served in the Union army. During the war, nearly a million immigrants added an additional 400,000 fighters to the Union.
Clearly the South was outnumbered.
The Union economy was much stronger: The Union had more factory production, of iron, coal, firearms production, wheat, corn, textiles, merchant ship wealth, farm acreage and livestock. The North ALSO had a Navy.
The South had…cotton.
Most wars are won and lost by one side running out of money. And the South had no gold or silver supplies, and was entirely dependent on its own paper money.
Some truths never change.
Today, we find out that the Clinton’s have given the new expanding Russia, the future control of the world’s uranium, which will go to Iran. Obama is flooding our country with illegal which weakens us even further. The politicians stopped taking about the debt because they don’t want us to know what’s coming.
The plutocracy that sits in Congress, does nothing as Obama takes dictatorial power.
And America…is broke: We can’t fight another war …Bush’s war was just too expensive.
And our leaders are beyond comprehension:
For example, when the U.S. invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003, the country’s government owed Washington approximately $4 billion dollars — partially leftover from America’s “loans” during the Iran-Iraq War.
The debt was forgiven post-“liberation,” part of a concerted push of then-governor of the war Paul Bremer. He argued it would help “boost” the fledgling free market.
Yeah, they have us all thinking about the “election.”
Anyway…once upon a time, we had noble leaders…and I was reading about one of them tonight: General Robert E. Lee:
From A History of the American People:
General Lee, the state’s most distinguished soldier, had been asked by Lincoln to become commander-in-chief of the Union forces. This was a wise choice and would have been a splendid appointment, for Lee was decent, honorable, and sensible as well as skillful. But Lee was a Virginian before anything else and he waited to see what Virginia did. When Virginia seceded, he reluctantly resigned his commission in the US Army, which he had served for thirty-two years. It seems to us quixotic but he felt he had no other options. He wrote to his sister in Baltimore and his brother in Washington DC:
“With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relatives, my children, my home.”..General Lee
How many of us are being asked to forget our traditions, our flag, our patriotism, our religion, our ancestors, our freedoms, and the very color of our own skin, in order to comply with the New World Order political correct FUBAR nation of Babylon chattering slaves that the elites have in mind for us?
And while our leaders are busy destroying America—- China, Russian, ISIS, are all building their armies.
And Obama plays basketball.
“Don’t you want to someday want to see a woman President of America?”
Any woman worth their proverbial salt, upon hearing this, can’t help but groan….NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!…. Not you! Anybody but you. We can WAIT another 1000 years. Please…not you. Go away. Go FAR away.
Everytime I hear Hillary speak, and wave her newly rehearsed hand gestures, (which I’m sure she has spent endless hours practicing in front of mirrors) my mind gets twisted with images of this:
- How embarrassing it is to think that of all the many world woman leaders in history that were worthy of leadership and admiration: Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir, Queen Elisabeth the First, OUR first woman President, would be a woman so intellectual inferior, morally corrupt, despicably shallow, and intolerantly insolent….compared to past historically great women, that, in the words of Abigail Adams:
“Better to lead a sick horse to the river and let him drown, then let him infect the whole water system.”
After so many years of the Clinton’s misery…we cringe…and we dream—-for some act of God to save us. He doesn’t have to actually “kill” her…How about a sudden sex change? You know, so she couldn’t run on just being the first American WOMAN president? Is that too much to ask to save the dwindling ‘free’ world?
But, there is good news: It seems some of the powerful that run the world, don’t want her in office either. Her own party wants her out…and it’s coming from the top.
Obama, it has been reported, via Valerie Jarrett, is actually the one behind the email scandal:
The State Department was ordered to launch a series of investigations into Hillary’s conduct at Foggy Bottom, including the use of her expense account, the disbursement of funds, her contact with foreign leaders and her possible collusion with the Clinton Foundation.
Six separate probes into Hillary’s performance have been going on at the State Department. I’m told that thee-mail scandal was timed to come out just as Hillary was on the verge of formally announcing that she was running for president — and that there’s more to come.
Not only that, many of the liberals are falling off the Hillary love fest. Maureen Dowd, the queen of liberal quackery, had THIS to say:
” The subtext of your news conference cut through the flimsy rationales like a dagger: “You can have the first woman president. You can get rid of those epically awful Republicans who have vandalized Congress, marginalized the president and jeopardized our Iran policy. You can get a more progressive American society. But, in return, you must accept our foibles and protect us.”
I’m not sure what “haters” Maureen is talking about, but at least she has delivered a big kick to the smirk on Hillary’s face.
And then there’s the other problem Hillary has: Will Bill be an asset or not?
Who could sabotage Hillary quicker and more swiftly than her own husband? I have always felt, call it a gut feeling from watching the two for years and years, that Bill Clinton, while he stands behind Hillary and the promotion of his daughter, doesn’t really want to be the first husband.
Knowing the narcissistic tendency of all these people, Bill would always put HIS place in history as being more important than hers. And he has had to work YEARS to erase the bitter memories of his impeachment…people are forgetting…he’s more loved than she is.
Why ruin that?
Of course, he has already shown how much he thinks about hurting Hillary’s chances by being his usual sexual predator self. If he respected her at all, if he was so keen on her becoming President…he would stop his philandering.
And the truth: Without Bill Clinton, Hillary would just have been another annoying liberal arts school teacher…probably teaching some crap women’s studies at Yale.
She still needs him. He doesn’t need her. Bill Clinton help put Obama into the Presidency at the Democratic Convention. Bill Clinton can talk and BS better than the both of them. Will Bill’s great skill in convincing people to vote, get her elected in 2016?
Nobody Thinks: Bill’s charm might not be enough this time.
Bill has said very little about his wife through the years, think about it. By his very actions of distance, and silence, and disrespect..he harms here. Here is a man and women who everybody on the planet knows, stopped loving each other years ago. Can the Clinton brand be held up by Hillary alone?
So, there is hope: Wall Street has put the money on both houses: Bush and Hillary.
Unless of course, Hillary says more of this:
“Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” You know that old theory, trickle-down economics? That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly. We’re not buying that old trickle-down economics that didn’t work before and will never work again because it defies arithmetic and reality.”
It’s said that the reason Obama doesn’t want Hillary in the White House is because she’s not far left enough…
From that statement, I’d say…Hillary might just have gone left of the planet Uranus.
Right after the speech, we saw the lemmings of idiotocracy in the democratic party come out–they were insulted that Bibi would even DARE to question the great King Obama. Obama has flooded his party with useful idiots that put us all in danger.
How did Obama handle this momentous speech of the century?
Why, he gave us a scandal. Hillary’s email at the State Department were all private. All the liberals are…changing the subject..and talking about that stupid dress. And it’s not even Monica’s.
What does this prove? Obama not only wants Iran to get nukes, his hatred of Israel is so strong, he used a Hillary scandal to get the speech off the news. Obama doesn’t want Hillary to be President. The Republicans aren’t the only ones who dislike Hillary, Obama does to. America still has to hear from her on this.
So, how is he going to prevent that?
We have all watched Obama use his office to make himself the most powerful man in the world, and NO man, NO president, has wanted to leave the office. How did FDR manage to stay four terms? He became a dictator. They’ve erased that out of our American history. Sure, we were in a war, but that should not have effected elections.
Obama has already ordered a new Air Force One that will be impenetrable. Although it’s not suppose to be finished until after 2016…what if we see the next great event? Will Obama declare elections off?
As Jordan’s King says: The Start of WWIII is here, now.
If Congress does not stop him, Obama will simply declare himself another term. Impeachment would be a long and bloody fight.
Obama is past deranged. An American President who sides with Muslims over the West is a danger TO the West.
IN the meantime, as we all see, Obama is on the side of the Muslims. He always has been. Always will be, which means, America is not who he plans to protect.
Sadly …America’s hope now lies in Netanyahu. Once upon a time, a whole world relied on Churchill. And even though FDR was a dictator, at least he didn’t side with the Nazi’s. We have a bigger problem with Obama. He sides with our enemies.
The democrats are saying “Gee. Iran is no threat! This is all hate speech for political purposes. How DARE they invite him to speak against our great leader.”
I suggest we remember all their names when America is attacked with a nuclear weapon. And what if it comes from North Korea instead of Iran? Obama would be blameless, and the Clinton’s would get the blame–and we might never know who really did it.
Think it couldn’t happen under Obama?
Then I suggest you open up another can of peas and carrots and get used to it. It might be all you will be allowed to eat should Obama continue to rule like a tyrant.
Can Bibi defeat Iran AND a dangerous American President? One thing we do know, he will defend Israel at all costs.
But…who will defend us? That’s a question every living American should be asking.
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!
This didn’t get much notice in the national news, but I found this VERY hard to believe…
Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich, who had recently launched a Republican campaign for governor, fatally shot himself in what police described as an apparent suicide, minutes after inviting reporters to his suburban St. Louis home for an interview.
Schweich’s death Thursday stunned many of Missouri’s top elected officials, who described him as a brilliant and devoted public servant with an unblemished record in office. Just 13 minutes before police received an emergency call from his home, Schweich spoke with The Associated Press about his plans to go public that afternoon with allegations that the head of the Missouri Republican Party had made anti-Semitic comments about him.
Think about it: He calls an interview and 13 minutes later he kills himself? Sure. Right. That’s how suicidal people do it. Especially the really intelligent ones.
Last year, during the mid-term elections, out of all the politicians that had their faces on TV, THIS man seemed the most promising. He was straight forward, almost what you would call a tea party man for the people. He was passionate, and a fighter. He promised to go after all the corruption in Missouri…
He was going to run for Governor, and he would have beat Nixon hands down.
It’s important for the democrats AND the Rino’s to keep their people in the leader positions, so there is a big sigh in the “Missouri will go our way” camp of upcoming Presidential elections.
Was this man….killed by orders from above?
Or was he deeply depressed?
How stupid are we?
Yes, and they found Lois Lerner’s emails, and ah…they can’t read them…again.
I was looking forward to voting for him.
And yes, I can say that It’s my Nobody’s Opinion that he was “taken” out, because when it comes to power, we have seen it all…there’s only so many coincidences that can happen in the space and time continuum, and the ledger on coincidences are way out of whack.
In the meantime, they have already I’m sure, working on the wife’s story.
BUT…Hillary just met with Elizabeth Warren. And Hillary’s only card in the deck is that she would be the first woman President. She has nothing else to offer on her record. Obama won on being the “first” black president, so to a liberal, it’s all about image and history, and with the control of the media, they will pound the issue relentlessly.
BUT….the country is in much worse shape than even when Obama ran, and the blacks won’t vote for Hillary just because she’s a woman. And Jeb will get the Spanish vote. Hillary has a problem.
Hillary has proven NOT someone you want to call at 3 o’clock in the morning with the fiasco of Benghazi.
So, Hillary would be lucky to get Elizabeth Warren to run with her. In fact, on the one hand, Wall Street and the global elites world would be behind Hillary, while Warren, could be reaching out to the people talking communism, and getting more freebees, and telling the people—- NO! Hillary is not for Wall Street! They both want to do right by the people!
If Hillary gets a man to be Vice President…who would she get? She will get…Bill. And Elizabeth will just be her puppet.
Either way, the Clintons or the Bushes, you will have no other choice.
I suggest we all go and sign in somebody else.
What? We won’t be able to do that? Are we that stupid?
Nobody Thinks to post this movie about the stereotype of a man who drives liberals crazy, is hard NOT to do.
I haven’t seen the movie yet, but this man, was given a job, and did it well. To blame the soldiers for war is beyond understanding, but liberals always do.
Nobody thanks Mr. Eastwood for bringing his life to the big screen.
You share the Nobody’s Fool Award of the week with Chris Kyle, who clearly, was a man of high integrity and great honor, and you can see that in this interview.
If you have seen it, go ahead and share. :)
Forgive me for going off the deep end today, I am STILL reading The Lost Book of Enki, translation of the Sumerian Tablets by some guy who says that the oldest known human literature has all the stories of the Bible in it: Cain an Able, Adam and Eve, the Flood…and I’m taking it very slow because—-it’s just too damn funny.
Just to refresh your minds on the story of the Anunnaki, according to the Sumerians, the Earth was populated by a race of aliens from the planet Nibiru. The big King there sent his sons to mine gold on Earth and ship it back, and they basically mated with some primates on Earth to make the first HYBRID to do their work for them.
At first the female alien scientists, tried mixing up the sperm of the male aliens and the ‘human’ DNA —but one of the male Annunaki just mated with a human one day and that worked out pretty good.
Let a male Anunnaki a two legged female impregnate, let a combination offspring be born!
Taller the Earth child grew in the image of the Anunnaki he was not: His hands for tools were not suited, his speech only grunt sounds was.
We must try once more! Ninmah was saying The admixture needs adjusting:
The point being they had a lot of trials and errors trying to come up with the perfect human, but once they got that going, the male aliens started having sex with them, and soon, they had a lot of new slaves to do their work. Which was growing food, mining for gold, and tending sheep..sheep brought to earth from Nibiru for everybody to eat.
Just for grins, they even take one of these new hybrids BACK to their planet, but when he is there he is told by his alien father NOT to drink the food there. These aliens think IF he drinks their food on their planet he will be able to live thousands of years…just like them! They don’t want the humans to live too long.
After a lot of success in getting tons of gold sent back to their planet, ..global warming happens. The crops start dying. They blame it on the sun, not their big space machines polluting the planet which shows how much THEY know. The ice is melting, and they know the planet will soon flood. This is okay with them because they really don’t care about Earth anymore, due to the fact that it just dawned on them that by hanging out on Earth, they are aging! OMG winkles on Anunnaki! They age faster on Earth than on their own planet of Nibiru! So, they all decided to leave.
Cindy Crawford was not born yet. If ONLY they had stuck around.
And that’s where I’m at in the book. And so, in light of having too much fun, I thought this movie review was right in line with how most liberal movie reviewers AND liberal book readers interpreting ancient Sumerian tablets look at life.
This week we have two people who amazingly had no clue of what was happening around them: Katie Kropas, who didn’t know she was pregnant for a whole nine months, and ‘President’ Barak Obama, who had no clue he was supposed to go to Paris and join the Western leaders in solidarity against Jihadists who are waging war on everybody. …
Or he could have at least send somebody.
Let’s start with Katie first.
Katie was having back pains one morning, and they were so bad she went to the hospital. Wondering what the heck was wrong, she rushed to the hospital, where an hour later, she gave birth to her 10 pound daughter!
Lovely! An added ten pounds is just the usual Christmas cookie caving right?
And then there’s forgetting you are the President of America and you have a duty to actually represent America. After all, it is your job. So when Obama didn’t show up in Paris last week to stand up with the other 40 leaders of the world–the world got rather insulted: Evidently, he just forgot, and to get everything together at the last-minute, would take too much time.
In other words: All the best hotel suites were already booked.
So, President Obama, spent the afternoon sitting at the White House, watching football.
So who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
On the one hand, nobody says how the boyfriend feels about his girlfriend not telling him she was pregnant, and if he will buy her story…but another baby born? That’s always a good thing, and Katie looks like a happy mom.
So…once again, the Nobody’s Perfect Award goes to ‘President’ Barack Hussein Obama. We might be able to forgive him for not wanting to hang out with other snobby European elites, but he could have at least sent Jeb Bush. (LOL!) Or Hillary. Or even Jerry Lewis.
It’s not like it was Super Bowl Sunday.
Nobody Gets Email
Here’s one I didn’t know: (Snopes aficionados? What do you think?)
(Thanks to Kris)
Did you know this?
What did Presidents Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower have in common? This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn’t know of this until it was pointed out to me.
Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work.
Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans.
In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them!
Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today.
If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation Wetback into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself.
Why, you might ask, can’t they do this today?
Actually the answer is quite simple. Hoover, Truman, and Eisenhower were men of honor, not self-serving politicians looking for votes!
Reminder: Don’t forget to pay your taxes……12 to 20 million illegal aliens are depending on it
The outrage today from conservatives, was what John Kerry said about history in his speech on the terror in France today:
“France gave birth to democracy itself.” (1.33)
What? Yes, France (who fought their bloody revolution AFTER America, Mr. Kerry) had a fine way towards democracy…beheadings. Except they improved upon it. Instead of the Muslim knife, they designed the guillotine, and beheaded thousands. That’s democracy! That’s mob rule! Which of course UNLIKE America, lead to a dictator, Napoleon. Maybe that’s why John Kerry prefers the French Revolution over ours.
Just the fact that he said something so ridiculous is what got the conservatives angry.
But..look how the young liberals are switching this around. They think the conservatives are MAD because the elite and rich (it’s okay that JOHN’s rich…that’s okay) John Kerry, speaks FRENCH!
What a GREAT MAN! He speaks another language! Imagine their awe. They can’t even imagine such wonders.
You could laugh, if you didn’t realize that these young men, are incredibly naïve. Maybe they should move to France.
(By the way…somebody tell the Greeks.)
Having said that, in a way, John Kerry could be speaking the truth, facts be known: the democracy that CAME from the French revolution was mob rule, NOT a representative republic which is what our founders established. The founders did not want mob rule in America, where the minority is always ignored. If we had democracy here, California and New York would rule us all.
The liberals, knowing the ignorance of the young, will say the word “democracy” as if it is the battalion word for freedom, because they know it’s a feel good word, and the young have no CLUE what they are really talking about.
It’s not freedom. It always ends up in disaster and dictators, historically speaking.
John Kerry: Can order a fine French wine in the French Alps in his favorite elite mountain Chalet, and feel superior.
Do we care?
Just a thought: My husband and I went to see Exodus tonight, and if you’ve ever seen the Ten Commandments, then this one will seem lame–having said that, the horses were beautiful.
Nevertheless, there is one thing that disturbed me. They kept pretty much to the Bible, except when Moses first started leading the people against the Pharaoh, he taught the slaves how to fight, and make bombs, and blow up the food supplies of the Egyptians. Now, I don’t remember that part being in the Bible, do you?
God (who is disguised as the same little kid from Matrix, also not in the Bible) comes down and tells him all this fighting will go on too long, and he should let him take care of things. And so Moses steps aside and God delivers the plagues.
Whatever you may think of the movie’s interpretation, I thought that, if I was a black militant, I would think to myself, “Gee, Moses taught the slaves to ATTACK the rich people in their palaces, and burn them down!” That’s what WE should to!.
I’ve heard Glenn Beck support this movie. How he missed this I have no clue…but as far as I know, Moses teaching the slaves how to riot and destroy the Egyptians is in no Bible version I have read.
It’s just one man’s interpretation, but considering recent events…it did make me wonder.
