Obama has left the world on edge. North Korea threatens nuclear attacks on the United States: Russia is growling, China is playing its usual stealth cards, and everyone is TRYING to ignore it, but, fact it: It’s not easy.
President Trump has taken a strong military stance once again for America, and in that respect, we remember Ronald Reagan and another former President who had a few words to say, about big…hands…I mean…sticks.
I found a few words from Teddy Roosevelt’s “Carry a big stick” speech.
Here it is:
IN 1914, Teddy Roosevelt published some thoughts on how America should react to the war going on in Europe: Germany had just invaded Belgian and they were overrun. The world watched Belgian then, as we watch the Middle East now.
Here are a few paragraphs that Teddy wrote from OUTLOOK,
September 23, 1913: “The World War: Its Tragedies and Its Lessons. “
Our first duty is to hold ourselves ready to do whatever the changing circumstances demand in order to protect our own interests in the present and in the future: although, for my own part, I desire to add to this statement the proviso that under no circumstances must we do anything dishonorable, especially toward unoffending weaker nations. Neutrality may be of prime necessity in order to preserve our own interests, to maintain peace in so much of the world as is not affected by the war, and to conserve our influence for helping toward the reestablishment of general peace when the time comes.
We can maintain our neutrality only by refusal to do anything to aid unoffending weak powers which are dragged into the gulf of bloodshed and misery through no fault of their own. Of course, it would be folly to jump into the gulf ourselves to no good purpose: and very probably nothing that we could have done would have helped Belgium. We have not the smallest responsibility for what has befallen her, and I am sure that the sympathy of this country for the suffering of the men, women, and children of Belgium is very real. (Nobody says: Syria.)
One of the main lessons to learn from this war is embodied in the homely proverb. “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”
A little good can come, (peace movements) but only on condition that nations remember that as yet arbitration treaties, neutrality treaties, treaties for the erection of independent tribunals, treaties of all kinds can do nothing to save a nation in great crises unless that nation is able to defend its own honor, its own vital interests.
Under existing conditions, universal and all-inclusive arbitration treaties have been utterly worthless, because where there is no power to compel nations to arbitrate, and where it is perfectly certain that some nations will pay no respect to such agreements unless they can be forced to do so, it is mere folly for others to trust to promises impossible of performance: and it is an act of positive bad faith to make these promise when it is certain that the nation making them would violate them.
That last paragraph reminds me of Obama’s deal with Iran.
President Trump is speaking loudly and trying to carry a big stick. So is Kim Jung Un. So is Vladimir Putin.
The only country who is speaking softly are the Chinese.
Somebody said on the radio last night that the United States attacked nations who do not have nuclear weapons. Iraq and Libya to name two.
And that is why other nations want them so badly, and why that little creep in North Korea is so scared.
Whatever…when it comes to N. Korea, I’m afraid it’s going to be ‘use a big stick’ and THEN speak softly.
And I’m not sure which leader will use it first. One thing for sure: they won’t be able to blame the next war on Julian Assange.
President Trump today didn’t score many points with his supporters today. To us, it looks like the man has caved. He has joined the globalists: McCain, and Schumer. Due to the images of children hurt by chemical attack in Syria, he has changed his tune on Syria. America once again, has done the global elites bidding.
This all came quickly:
First: Steve Bannon quit, or was demoted, or whatever. Another man good man falls.
Second: Senator Nunes “excused” himself from the committee of investigations against Susan Rice. Another criminal will go free.
Third: As I write this, it’s being reported that President Trump has sent 56 missiles into Syria.
Forth: and most importantly: Hillary Clinton has come out of hiding, with a new confidence and arrogance that we haven’t seen before, blaming Russia for her loss.
Yes, the bitch is back.
Syria did NOT attack America, and Trump told us he would not take us into wars where the United States was not harmed.
But…oh…the video. Children’ were hurt. Emotional pictures were sent out everywhere.
So, Trump is warring up. If you go by this action…Obamacare will not be replaced, the next coming war will need higher taxes, and more American soldiers could die. When the economy is so bad, it’s usually a war that is the answer. The damage done by Obama is so overwhelming Trump’s promises will be hard or even impossible to reach.
History tells us that our past Presidents have started many a World War….on purpose.
Not even into his first year, and Trump has caved.
This is an excerpt from one of Judge Napolitano Books:
Before his election, FDR said: “I have said it before and I will say it again. Your boys are not going to be sent into 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 Pace. The Pact required the three nations to come to each other’s aid and protection if one of the others in the Pact was attacked. In other words, if Japan attacked the United States, the United States would surely retaliate against its aggressor: in doing so, Germany would surely retaliate against its aggressor and Germany would then come to Japan’s assistance. FDR responded to Churchill’s pleas to enter the war, “Although I many not declare war, I many make war. ”
The McCollum memo. The memo stated: If Japan could be led to commit an overt act of war, so much the better.” FDR fired Admiral James O. Richardson, commander-in-chief of the U.S. Fleet, who voiced objection to the provocation plan at the White House during a discussion with the president.
FDR confessed, “I just want them to keep popping up here and there and keep the Japs guessing. I don’t mind losing one or two cruisers, but do not take a chance on losing five or six.” Keep in mind, two lost cruisers equal the deaths of 1,980 men, roughly the number of men killed at Pearl Harbor. Moreover, Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson’s diary reveals the intent to provoke an attack when the United States issued as ultimatum to Japan twelve days prior to Pearl Harbor, demand that she removes all troops from China and Indochina, bad break the tripartite treaty with Germany and Italy. Stimson said, “We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be done so as to be sure Japan is put into the wrong and makes the first bad move. Overt move.
The U.S. Government 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.” He inserted the draft and said, “Your boys are going into training to form a force so strong that by its very existence it will keep the threat of war from our shoes.” As history, would later prove, this was a complete and utter lie.
The US continued to monitor Japanese communications but consciously chose not to prevent the attack.
AT Pearl Harbor, 2,403 Americans died and 405,399 Americans were eventually killed throughout the course of WWII.
The truth is, the ultimate crisis war is a dear friend of the state. In fact, the government uses war at the ultimate means to expand its own power, size, and scope. It does so in a multitude of ways, to which we will return below: Tax and budget increases, security laws and regulations, nationalization of industry, censorship of speech and expression, suspension of due process, warrantless searches and seizures, and blanket arrest of war resisters. This list goes on and on.
President Trump said that “It’s in our vital National Interest that WMD’s”…yada….yada….what?
Well, this Nobody Wonders why the bullet in the head of a young child in Chicago, Detroit, or St. Louis, is any less dangerous than a chemical weapon? You can kill people with swords and cars! Dead is dead, no matter how it happened, right?
Where was the outrage and pictures of all the young Christian children lying in blood and headless all over the Middle East?
How many trips has John McCain made to the “rebels” in Syria?
Too many to count.
It’s the same old twisted talk we’ve heard all throughout history.
We are told, that Assad DID this, even though Obama said that he gave us all his WMD’s.
I found this video below very interesting…it’s all about False Flags, but, the most important part is at 1302. Watch that, and tell me that this could very well have been a false flag to get us into war with Russia.
McCain, Hillary…that’s ALL they talk about.
And by the way, remember the Muslims got WMD’s from AMERICA.
One last note: This is my first post ‘against’ President Trump.
And no, I believe with all my heart, that Ted Cruz would have done the exact same thing.
The man who told us everything he will do will be for America…just did something for the world….unless of course he was just showing off to China and North Korea.
Still, all the democrats and republicans are joined tonight in approval, how nice.
I suggest we all stock up on Vodka.
He’s good-looking and gave a great speech last year when he lost the Presidential race…BUT….
Marco Rubio, the man who started the “little hands” fight with Trump, is back at his old job, and frankly, I wish he would have just run for Mayor of Miami. instead of getting back into Congress.
He would be called “Little MMM…Miami Mayor Marco” and he could get a home on Marco Island and take his helicopter to work every morning.
Marco is ready to rumble! He’s joined, what I call the secret “Bush” revenge war on Trump, with the other, “Russia is our biggest enemy!” jovial loudmouths, John McCain and his best bud Lindsey Graham.
But wait…I’m confused here. All the Democrats, led by Obama, and the black caucus are on the same side as McCain, Rubio and Graham?
What’s going on here?
How come Rino’s are joining up with Democrats in this new, “From Russia With Love” fantasy of danger and suspense? They are all making a big ruckus about Putin and how he is going to take over the world. Ignoring completely the Muslim Elephant in the room.
And does this all come down to Saudi Arabian oil? After all, Obama’s Muslim leader of the CIA, Director Brennan, was out warning that Trump knew nothing about Russia today. Should HE know the Russians? He spent half his life living in Saudi Arabia.
Or is this all about the vast military complex that Eisenhower warned us about in his last speech to the country? (BINGO!)
Both Trump and Putin think NATO should be…revamped. Trump— because we foot the whole bill while the other countries are feeding the mouths of millions of Muslim immigrants, and being able to take long socialist vacations,—- and Putin, because he’s in competition with the Saudi’s for selling his oil, and he would love to take over more lands.
That’s what dictators do! Look at Obama, he just took over half the land of the Western Half of the country. (What?)
There are a LOT of big jobs in NATO, and what have they done for anybody lately? And since Obama crapped all over Israel, isn’t Israel a country we are sworn to protect?
Obama sure didn’t step up for that, did he? So, the U.N. Trumps NATO?
Today, Rubio said this:
Monday in Miami after attending a Martin Luther King Day event, while commenting on President-elect Donald Trump saying NATO is obsolete, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said NATO was “not only not obsolete I believe it’s as important as it’s been since the end of the Cold War.
I’m not sure. But…some golfers did see John McCain today, after the Miami Rally….
Maybe Little Marco should think more about the dangerous dinosaurs in Congress then worrying about Russia.
But then again…Nobody’s Perfect.
I watched this today, and realized, as I watched the anger and shaking hands of Marco Rubio during the questioning of Rex Tillerson, that this is ONE man who should never be in the Oval Office.
He was unhinged. Too emotional. Rubio would go to war with Russia in a heartbeat.
Hey, where was Rubio during the Rwanda massacre? And by the way Marco, the Clintons MAY have murdered up to 60 people if you want to read the news.
Dick Morris today, admitted, that the CIA could be going rogue, as they once did. He said that LBJ could have had Kennedy killed. If they go rouge, it will be dangerous for Trump.
My heart went out to Mr. Tillerson, who answered wisely, and with finesse, and I bet he was thinking, “This is just a boy, and just think what I have to go through for this job.”
We saw this anger against Russia by mostly the Republican Party throughout the year: in fact, you could almost see who was being ruled by the global Cartel: The Clintons, the Bushes, McCain, and Graham. Mitt Romney thought Russia was our shown enemy.
If that is the case, then why piss them off?
McCain, today, admitted that he was the one who gave the CIA this nonsense about Trump watching prostitutes pee on a bed where Obama had slept in Russia.
Come on. How stupid ARE these people? They put the fact that Trump wanted to pee on Obama’s bed? Right there you know it’s fake.
The American people think that Trump and Putin will get along. Neither want war. So, WHY in the hell are the democrats and the republicans trying to start-up the cold war again?
Tell me Rubio…are the deaths of citizens in a foreign nation worth the death of millions here in the United States?
Anyway…here’s some excerpts from Michael Savage’s views on the Russian situation, and its history, which explains a lot….. at the end of his excellent book:
Stop the Coming Civil War.
Let me make it clear from the start: It was the United States, and not Russia, that engineered the uprising against the elected Ukrainian government. The Obama administration spent billions to enable radical right wingers to stage a phony revolution in Ukraine., then complained when Putin stepped in and draw a real red line in the sand, daring the United States to challenge him.
The legitimately elected Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovich was ousted and the country placed in the hands of rebel forces spearheaded by Chechen Islamist radicals.
The Ukrainian “revolution” was fostered and encouraged by Nulan, Rice, and U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt. Over the weeks leading to the February 2014 uprising, these three were instrumental in staging a destabilizing camping. Working with Ukrainian rebels they fostered the Ukrainian uprising that cause Yanukovich to flee from Kiev.
Arizona senator John McCain was also part of this duplicity. McCain went to Kiev in December 2014 and helped incite the mobs who would ultimately overthrow the legitimately elected president. If there were such a thing as a Nobel Anti-peace Prize, McCain would win it hands down for his work in Egypt and Syria, topped off by what he’s done in Ukraine. McCain was proposing nothing less than that we stag a military intervention in Ukraine, as he’s done many times before. McCain was in Syria, secretly baking rebels there, rebels who turned out to be Islamist radicals, supposedly our sworn enemies. McCain also made a covert trip to Libya, where he received an award from the military. This happened on the very day Shariah law was declared in that country, the same day McCain arrived. While he was in Ukraine, he met with a number of rebels who were intent on regime change in that country, and he expressed regret that he wasn’t having success saying “I do not see a military option and it’s tragic.
The Ukrainian nationalists are fascists. Washington’s original purpose for staging a coup in Ukraine was to move Ukraine away from Russia and bring Ukraine into the EU. In other words, the neocons and the bought-and-paid-for moderates in the Obama administration wanted to wrest control of Ukraine from Putin’s hands and gain economic and energy control over the country. As one commentator has pointed out, Western nations, with the United States leading the way, have been provoking Putin for decades. We’ve expanded NATO to include former Soviet states, Ukraine, looks like the next target and we’ve attacked allies of Russia, including Libya and Iraq. The United States, along with other Western nations, through our incursions into the politics, economics and national security of Russia and several of its allies, has effectively caused the situation that resulted in Putin stand ready to invade Ukraine militarily if necessary.
Putin has been good to the Russian Jews. With the elected government now driven out of Ukraine, the anti-Semitic U.S. Backed fascist thugs who have assumed control are vandalizing synagogues and threatening the lives of Jews in Ukraine.
Let me give you some background that will help you understand what went on in Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea after the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. After Ukraine achieved independence and Crimean we ceded to Ukraine, state-owned assets of the Soviet Upon were privatized. This is where the term oligarchs, which you hear used so often in discussions about the Ukrainian conflict, comes into play. Those state-owned business and utilities were transferred into the hands of a small group of powerful, politically connected individuals, who effectively took control of Russia’s economy. Russia became a capitalist country in one sense of the word, but the private ownership of the country’s assets was transferred to a small group of cronies who quickly became among the richest and most powerful businessmen in the world. The Russian oligarchs continue in that role today.
Russian’s annexation of Crimea is also important relative to Ukraine. The majority population in Crimea is Russian, and its warm water Black Sea ports are critical to Russian military and trade interests. (Nobody adds, it’s also the bread basket)Russia could not afford to let the Crimean region fall into the hands of the insurgents who have taken over Ukraine, something Obama and his foreign policy know-nothings seem not to have anticipated.
U.S interference in Ukrainians political has resulted in Putin’s expanding his military influence, while at the same time Barack Obama is bent on decimating our military in the middle of the Ukrainian crisis.
I see the forces of the left are attempting nothing less than a socialist takeover of the world economy and global politics.
Why do Republican Party leaders cave again and again to Obama’s agenda?
The answer is actually very simple.
They are on his side.
Most Republicans now agree that we should become members of the “global community.” It’s not a coincidence that the phrase ‘global community” is synonymous with the word communism, or that Barack Obama got his start as a community organizer.
Communism has never been anything but a group of power-crazed leftist bent on depriving the citizens under their control of all their rights.
Like every communist country, we’ve become a surveillance state in which the NSA can trap our every move.
How did an unknown senator from Illinois become president of the United Stats?
How did an unknown cardinal, the first non-European in 1400 years and from a country with a Marxist history, become Pope?
How did an avowed Sandinista supporter with strong socialist leaning become mayor of the largest city in America?
Is this a sign of the times? Or is it something more sinister?
God Bless our Vets.
My father, and HIS father served in the Pacific. My uncle was killed at Midway.
There truly WERE a great generation.
Let’s think back: How did we get out of that messy depression that was prolonged by FDR and his New Deal spending? That’s right— we went to war!
Jeb Bush just said to the world, in response to the Paris terror attack, ” We should declare war!”
Well, gee…that’s a novel concept. We’re not at war yet? Tell that to the soldiers that are missing legs and arms.
When was the last time anybody declared war in the United States besides ISIS? The last time Congress declared war was 68 years ago.
The Western leaders take…”actions” now, because only Congress can declare war, and Congress doesn’t want to be put on the spot on that vote, due to the fact that it might hurt them at the voting booth, so they just let the Presidents do what they want, which is bomb any country he wants without Congress having to mess with it.
The world is sliding into WWIII, and Wall Street is excited…they see the writing on the wall, and they are looking for an out. You think the rich are rich now, wait until the globe goes to war.
Remember, President George W. Bush made a big spectacle out of his bombing of Iraq…”Shock and Awe” world…take notice…look how careful our American Presidents are when they bomb cities. (smile, applause.)
President George W. Bush made the biggest deal out of freeing Iraq from Saddam…as if after 9/11 that was our mission. I guess after that wonderful moment when the world witnessed some Iraq’s pulling down Saddam’s statue, Bush thought, “My work is done here.”
And yet, he knew we’d be there for…ever. George and all his cronies said as much.
George wasn’t much different from Bill Clinton, who just HAD to get involved in Kosovo. Bill killed thousands of innocents, and what was THAT about again, besides getting the headlines off Bill’s sexual orgies with Monica? Does anybody remember? The American people will never know. Our Presidents declare an enemy, and off we go.
The truth is, America and her “allies” have been over in the Middle East for a long time, long before 9/11, and while I don’t for a moment think that America had 9/11 coming, still…as backward and radical as those people are…still, we have killed thousands of innocents Muslims. Of course, they like to hide among the women and children, and the video below explains WHY that is.
Americans don’t hear the body count on the other side, and Nobody ever thinks about it. Idiots or not, they still love their own families. They are sick and twisted, but they have Allah on their side, and who do we have? God? The Bible?
Didn’t they get rid of that?
Not that we care much. They attacked us first: They STARTED the crusades.
Trump is right…we don’t win anymore. President George W. should have WON that war, but he didn’t. And Obama’s fights to LOSE it.
And so, Obama, feeling pity on the Muslims, withdraws, and then send arms to them, to take out Syria and what do they do?
They decided to take out Paris instead, because the French..are such an easy target.
At the G-20 this week, Obama came out sounding all blustery and gung-ho and he was going to GET those criminals that planned the terror attack in Paris…
Bill Clinton was going to get the men who bombed the Cole.
Obama was going to get those criminals (notice all terrorist are just mere criminals to Obama) who attacked our embassy at Benghazi.
Nobody Thinks that Obama just likes to come out and say big and bold masculine statements, that don’t mean fiddly squat.
I have not been paying attention to the Paris updates, but excuse me, didn’t most of those guys blow themselves up? That leaves maybe …one terrorist left…and a woman at that, for Obama to get. Will Hillary let him? And speaking of the huggermugger wonder, she declared in her debate yesterday that she protected New York from the terrorists because she helped bring back Wall Street.
And that’s why they give her millions of dollars, she did such a GREAT job at rebuilding downtown Manhattan. That sure did show those terrorist how tough she is.
Too bad she wasn’t protecting Manhattan BEFORE the attack. What was she doing? Playing around with her email?
Clinton responded that she was representing New York in the Senate when downtown Manhattan was attacked and noted that she helped the city’s financial hub rebuild. “That was good for New York and it was good for the economy and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country,” she said, her voice rising.
We don’t know what’s going to happen with all this, but I have been saying for quite a while…we might not HAVE an election. I truly believe the rich that are in charge of this global economy would rather leave Obama in office than face a President Trump. They’d prefer Hillary, but nobody wants her. So………
Carpe Diem Muchachos!…and enjoy a sensible man while you can.
For almost 8 long years, we have heard Obama blame the Bush Administration, for the economy, and the war in the Middle East. He has said that if Bush had not bombed Iraq, then this mess wouldn’t have happened and been passed on to him. And the economy was in such a mess, that it would take over ten years usually to come out of the recession. Not his fault….Bush’s.
Obama has taken NO blame, whatsoever, for anything that has happened since he has been in office. Hillary pretty much says the same thing. Looking back, the last President that I can remember accepting blame for any of his actions, was Richard Nixon. And that was because his own party helped kick him out.
So….here’s the question: Is a President responsible for whatever happens while they are in office? (Or a Secretary of State?)
That’s the argument that Trump has made against former President George W. Bush.
Trump said this to Chris Wallace in an interview last weekend:
“Jeb [Bush] said ‘We were safe with my brother. We were safe.’ Well, the World Trade Center just went down. Now, am I trying to blame him? I’m not blaming anybody, but the World Trade Center came down, so when he said we were safe, we were not safe. We lost 3,000 people. It was one of the greatest — probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country,” the Republican presidential hopeful said. “With that being said,” he added, “I’m not blaming George Bush, but I don’t want Jeb Bush to say ‘My brother kept us safe,’ because Sept. 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country.”
No matter how ‘nice’ a guy George Bush seemed to be…like Obama, not ONCE did he take any kind of blame for that day, even though, it was blatantly clear, that neither New York OR Washington D.C., had any kind of serious protection that day. That in itself is shameful. They like to BRAG about our superiority…where was it on that day?
Bush’s actions after 9/11, left many people in America wondering…what? We are going into Afghanistan and then taking out Saddam Hussein? Why? Because he once tried to kill your daddy? Because you needed to finish what your father didn’t? We…had NO clue.
We had…a frat boy, in the White House…we have one now.
The argument on the other side is: “Well, it’s not one man’s fault if we got attacked, the world is complicated. He should never be blamed for what happened. Was FDR blamed for the attack at Pearl Harbor?
No. He wasn’t. He should have been. FDR had received word several days before the attack, and didn’t pass the message on. Your top job as President is to defend your country here, FIRST…not after the fact.
The same thing happened on 9/11. The information that an attack was imminent had been going on ever since the FIRST attack on the World Trade Center when Bill Clinton was in office.
Clinton could have killed bin Laden….he left him for Bush.
“Across the spectrum of foreign policy, Mr. Trump talks about things as though he’s still on ‘The Apprentice,'” the former Florida governor said of his rival for the Republican presidential nomination.
“My brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country, he organized our country and he kept us safe. And there’s no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that.”
The trouble is, at the time, of course, we all united. But then, when Bush got on his microphone in New York, and made his little speech in the megaphone, I’m sorry. I found it lame. Like, somebody told him he should at LEAST say something. And when he took his god damn time going after ANYBODY…getting permission from this country, and whomever..
I’m sorry. Weak. Lame. Was our military that devastated? We didn’t want him to invade ANY country, just kill the guys responsible for the attack.
But, George had bigger plans. He used that attack as an opportunity to invade the Middle East. Lots of good stuff there in the Middle East.
Ben Carson just said, that while he wasn’t going to blame Bush for the deaths on 9.11, he did blame him for not going after bin Laden. The American people wanted revenge. Bush, should have made SURE we got it. But then, there’s Bush’s relations with the Saudi Family….and those…trillions of dollars worth of minerals.
Sure. Right. Obama…who needed SOME kind of foreign success after his horrible first four years, went and got him.
Today, on the Sunday talk shows, Bob Woodard said that the American people needed a Ronald Reagan, and Trump wasn’t it. Insinuating that Jeb Bush was.
NOBODY SAYS: Not in a million years does Jeb even come close to Reagan. Ronald Reagan would have said the same thing Trump is saying now about the events of 9/11.
“It wouldn’t have happened on MY watch.”
Ronald Reagan made the world safer by defeating the Russians. Both Presidents George H.W., and his son George W., have done pretty much the opposite. And when Obama got in: he just lit the match—-Fired up the engines…and put the whole Middle East into a burning hell hole.
Sorry Jeb. It’s wasn’t President George W. Bush that kept America safe the rest of his days in office, it was the American soldier, FBI, and ordinary citizens that did.
And that’s the big mistake that Jeb makes….acting like it was his brother that protected us all. He should have protected us…at FIRST.
So, the question is: Is Trump right for holding George W. Bush responsible for not protecting us?
In the words of Ronald Reagan, “Hell yes.” (Okay, I spoke for him. )
You will not hear middle eastern war news much anymore…all we hear is Obama is sending over some troops to be advisers to Iraq soldiers….so in this Alex Jones interview, Gerald Celente informs Americans who are NOT getting the news on FOX or CNN what is really happening overseas in the Middle East, besides ISIS.
Really, our news is so filtered and controlled its basically recycled crap…and all cable stations are mostly about keeping the same people in power…a continual PR for the big monster called the U.S. Government.
The video is worth the watch. Celente has a great track record, he predicted 2008 years before it happened.
Gerald Celente is Nobody’s Fool…and he’s one of my favorite guru’s.
He wins this week, hands down.
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.
“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.
Once upon a time, one of America’s greatest hero’s Charles Lindbergh, spoke out against America getting involved in Europe. The reason? He didn’t think we were ready. Here is a speech he gave in New York on April 23, 1941, as a representative of America First Committee, a group that was trying to keep us out of the war.
Remember as you read this, after we did get involved, he worked hard for the American cause and was named a brigadier general in the Air Force Reserve by President Eisenhower in 1954.
Some of that speech:
There are many viewpoints from which the issues of this war can be argued. Some are primarily idealistic. Some are primarily practical. One should, I believe, strive for a balance of both. But, since the subjects that can be covered in a single address are limited, tonight I shall discuss the war from a viewpoint which is primarily practical. Is it not that I believe ideals are unimportant, even among the realities of war: but if a nation is to survive in a hostile world, its ideals must be backed by the hard logic of military practicability. If the outcome of war depended upon ideals alone, this would be a different world than it is today.
I know I will be severely criticized by the interventionist in America when I say we should not enter a war unless we have reasonable chance of winning.
I do not blame England for his hope or for asking for our assistance. But we now know that she declared a war under circumstances which led to the defeat of every nation that sided with her, from Poland to Greece. We know the in the desperation of war England promised to all those nations armed assistance that she could not send. We know that she misinformed them, as she has misinformed us, concerning her state of preparation, her military strength and the progress of the war.
(Is this not happening now in the Ukraine? Were they NOT promised help from Europe and America?)
He goes on in his speech to say that militarily we could not win this war:
Suppose we had an air force that we could send to Europe. Where could it operate? Some of our squadrons might be based in the British Isles, but it is physically impossible to base enough aircraft in the British Isles alone to equal in strength the aircraft that can be based on the continent of Europe.
(Boy, was HE wrong.)
“There is a policy open to this nation that will lead to success….a policy that leaves us free to follow our own way of life and to develop our own civilization.
It is based upon the belief that the security of a nation lies in the strength and character of its own people. It recommends the maintenance of armed forces sufficient to defend this hemisphere from attack by any combination of foreign powers. It demands faith in an independent American destiny. This is the policy of the America First Committee today. It is a policy not of isolation but of independence: not of defeat but of courage.
(Great stuff…keep going.)
We have weakened ourselves for many months, and, still worse, we have divided our own people by this dabbling in Europe’s wars. While we should have been concentrating on American defense we have been forced to argue over foreign quarrels. We must turn our eyes and our faith back to our own country before it is too late.
We have been led toward war by a minority of our people. This minority has power. It has influence. It has a loud voice. But it does not represent the American people.
(Gee, not much has changed, has it?)
During the last several years I have traveled over this country from one end to the other. I have talked to many hundreds of men and women, and I have letters from tens of thousands more who feel the same way and you and I. Most of these people have no influence or power. Most of them have no means of expressing their convictions except by their vote, which has always been against this war. They are the citizen who have had to work too hard at their daily jobs to organize political meetings. Hitherto, they have relied upon their vote to express their feelings: but now they find that it is hardly remembered except in the oratory of a political campaign.
And so, the good news? According to our last election, the America that Charles Lindbergh talked about is still out there.
The bad news? We STILL have no influence or power. If we had any say in any of the wars, Vietnam and Iraq would have been done shorter, with more force, and with finality.
If Charles were alive today, I’m sure he would say: We are not prepared to fight another war:
But…something tells me…we will.
If you want to know Obama’s foreign policy it’s given here by his dweeby…blond liberal who thinks she smart, state department representative.
“We cannot win this war by killing them.”
No, what they want to do is offer them job opportunities. Poverty is the reason that all these young men want to behead people. They just have nothing else to do. So, Obama suggests a war on poverty…not on Islam. We will NEVER be at war with Islam. But poverty— that’s a sure-fire democratic winner for raising money. After all, according to Obama, Islam is peaceful. America can help these poor, misguided jihadists, to trade in their beheading blades for a McDonalds minimum wage. Just give them a chance to get a FREE franchise, paid for by us! After all….Obama has money to blow. He collected more of your tax money last year than EVER collected in history. Obama is a citizen of the world, and these Muslims need our help.
What’s sad about this, is, —–it’s Jeb Bush’s thoughts on illegal immigration.
All those poor illegals need is jobs….and America should make sure they get those jobs.
In the meantime, this just in: Here we see three representatives of the U.S. State Department. Obama does have a REAL plan to deal with the growing forces of ISIS…
And the program, recently added under Homeland Security, is under the code name of: DDH—-
Duck, Dodge, and Hide.
It’s another week of total confusion: First—we are going to war, then, no, we are only doing counter terrorists strikes. Then Obama says it’s a war, but no boots on the ground, then maybe boots on the ground.
Well look: This about sums it up: (confusion starts at 3.52)
Obama can’t be seen going to war, and Glenn Beck says this is all about going to war in Syria, but then, elections are coming up in two months, so what can Obama do to make it look to the voters that he’s not dragging us back to war?
He can SAVE Africa!
WASHINGTON — Under pressure to do more to confront the Ebola outbreak sweeping across West Africa, President Obama on Tuesday is to announce an expansion of military and medical resources to combat the spread of the deadly virus, administration officials said.
The president will go beyond the 25-bed portable hospital that Pentagon officials said they would establish in Liberia, one of the three West African countries ravaged by the disease, officials said. Mr. Obama will offer help to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia in the construction of as many as 17 Ebola treatment centers in the region, with about 1,700 treatment beds
The American government will also provide 400,000 Ebola home health and treatment kits to Liberia, as well as tens of thousands of kits intended to test whether people have the disease That is worrisome, Dr. Osterholm said, because it is difficult to care for Ebola patients without becoming infected, and there is no proof that the kits will work. “We are going to endanger family members more by providing the kits,” he said.
AMAZING! Obama can send help half way around the world, set up the most efficient healthcare system seen anywhere on the earth, in fact, put our own men and women in harm’s way of death just to treat the people of Africa, (sending loaded guns just in case that virus comes at them with a deadly sword) but he can’t send more troops to Iraq to save people from getting their heads cut off.
Not to mention, did our dying veterans in THIS country get the help they were promised?
On the one hand, if Scotland leaves, Britain will be downsized, and Sean Connery will no longer be welcomed by the Queen. Somehow, I bet the vote comes down to just a few votes, in the Queen’s favor. You can’t tell me the rich in Scotland will sit by and let this happen. There are CASTLES at stake maaaan!
I suppose Scotland leaving England would be much like California leaving the United States. Personally, I like my mother’s idea. (Bless here soul: may she be NOT watching TV in heaven) Give California and New York to the liberals, let them break off from the rest of the country….we’d have the food basket. If California wanted our soybeans and corn, we could trade for some of their fruit. We could give Chicago back to the Indians.
I’m ready for a change. And speaking of change—
Leonardo DiCaprio has been tapped by the United Nations to be honored with the title of Messenger of Peace. This is what he said:
“It’s an honor to accept the role of U.N. Messenger of Peace on Climate Change and to support the Secretary General in his efforts to address one of the most important issues we face as a global community,” said DiCaprio in a statement.” ( and put the money in my Cayman account)
“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history — it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”
Wait! The fate of humanity? LEO..that’s Nancy Pelosi’s line! Nancy Pelosi said the fate of humanity depends on whether the democrats can hold the Senate!
What is Leonardo is going to do if the republicans take control of the Senate? Will he be peaceful?
Will he be full of peace and love and all good things? Is he going to tell us not to eat meat on Mondays? Will he get his picture taken with Nancy riding down Wall Street in the back of her limo?
But, that’s not the biggest question of the week. The BIGGEST question on my mind was WHO put the horns on Obama’s photo-op out of the White House last week, while he was announcing sending ‘advisors’ to Iraq?
Was it a liberal camera man who was secretly mad about it?
OR…is Obama claiming his REAL throne?
And will he be at the Satan Fest next week?
Nobody knows…but we do know one thing…he’s there in spirit.
And so, dear readers, we end another week of complete ignorance to which I can always say:
Seize the ignorant per diem!
I will go forever onward in my own nobody way, with only one thought in mind:
“You will have to take that hamburger out of my cold, dead, hands, Leo.
Stick to making movies about scumbags.”
Boy. Am I disappointed. Everyone is so impressed about Obama coming out last night. Sounding Presidential. Sounding tough. We are going to war—To kill…all those… Islamist Jihadists (Wait….they are not Islamists…no Islam is a peaceful religion…sorry.) Nobody seems to think it’s all the usual Obama big mouth bluster.
Come on. You really don’t buy that speech do you? Remember that “You will NOT cross the red line, and you’ll keep your doctor too!” moments?
“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Mr. Obama said. “That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”
Core principle? Since when? How many men that attacked Benghazi have been brought to justice?
Never mind that Obama said pretty much the same thing about getting all the people who killed our men in Benghazi. Yes, “Make no mistake” he would get them. (at the 1.00 mark)
So, excuse me…to most Americans this was just a more FORCEFUL speech, a political speech, to please the Americans people who are scared, elections are coming.
And why should we believe anything he says?
Face it: Here’s what the government doesn’t WANT to tell you. All democratic Presidents downsize the military and put money into their social programs. Bill Clinton destroyed so much of the military that it took George W. Bush a while to get it back up. About 9 months if I remember correctly.
They WANT you to think our military is always right there…READY. But, I’m not buying it anymore. And you’d better believe that the other countries know we are at our weakest.
Why else to you think Putin is having so much fun?
We’re just not ready to launch much of anything. Why else does Obama keep saying over and over “Uh..Everybody else has to help out..uh.”
Obama has already delivered half our military hardware to the local police, the rest he left over there for his ISIL.
And guess what? We don’t manufacture anymore, remember? How much do you think those bombs costs in China?
There has been a dramatic reduction in the Department of Defense. With the advent of GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) it is pretty clear that the force structure is totally inadequate to handle another campaign.
For the surge of 2010 in Afghanistan, more than 60 percent of the force structure was contract labor. And never before have contractors held such key positions.
Have we all forgotten that we are basically bankrupt? What’s the debt level now?
Two years ago it was $17 trillion. Have you heard ANY politician mention it in the last two years?
After the cold war, the budgets were cut, and too many contractors were competing for an ever shrinking budget . The companies began to merge to keep afloat.
Here’s a rundown a CIA operative, Dr. John B. Alexander
The mergers included huge companies, as well as acquisition and divestment of subsidiaries. As examples, in 1994 and 1995 Lockheed Corporation merged with Martin Marietta. Northrop merged with Grumman. Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas. Raytheon merged with E-Systems and acquired Hughes, which had already been bought by General Motors.
This all happened under Clinton.
Most Americans would have been happy for President George W. Bush to just go get bin Laden, but he decided to re-engineer the whole middle East.
Maybe he saw the bigger picture. Maybe he didn’t. Maybe it was all about the money.
But here we are, more vulnerable than ever before.
Our government spend billions and BILLIONS of our dollars on Homeland Security, and the NSA, and yet any fool jihadists with a nuke can walk into the country.
How in the HELL are we suppose to believe that they are protecting us?
How can we possibly believe anything any President tells us anymore?
In what world?
Until our borders are secure we are sitting ducks.
Tonight, when Obama was spitting out all that patriotic BS that you KNOW he hates at the end of his speech, I couldn’t help but think that on this 9/11, in Obama’s home town of Chicago, five firemen are sitting at home after being suspended for having the American Flag on their lockers.
They were ordered to take the flags down. They refused.
There is a Marine sitting in a jail in Mexico, and Obama won’t lift a finger for him.
All over this country veterans are dying, waiting to be seen by doctors…Obama only cares about the ones who make him look good.
And as if to add insult to every American on 9/11…Obama starts off by TELLING us that ISIS is not Islamic.
Well, they CALL themselves Islamic. They kill in the name of Allah. Just because Obama wants to make up his own definition of them, shows how insulting he can be.
And when you have the leader of your country, saying such idiotic things to the world, you have to know it’s not just us that is in trouble, it’s everybody else too.
Obama IS the most clueless and dangerous man to EVER hold that office.
So, Obama will ask for millions to bomb from Congress, and he will get it. Nobody will declare war (They never do anymore do they?) and the money will go down deep black holes, and end up somehow in the wrong hands, and then those wrong hands will kill millions with their…Allah intentions.
So, on this 9/11 day, I would personally like to send a message to Michelle Obama
“Michelle. For the FIRST time in my life, I am ashamed of my President.”
Okay. Maybe the second. (Bill Clinton was disgusting.)
We can only pray the good men and women who still make up much of this country, are watching out for us now…because we have a bigger problem.
And right about now, he’s on the 16th hole.
