Next President of the United Fates of America
#34
Wook, I hope the AP wins their lawsuit.
The AP has been fighting the State Department for years on end for information
that should be directly forthcoming,
and they finally said enough is enough,
and a lawsuit will force the issue.
so,
"freedom of information"
from the State Department comes with a hefty legal fee,
if you want anything of substance.

Rand Paul
the Huffington Post is floating like a bee and stinging RP Whip

I have always supported an independent Kurdistan,
away from the puppet Iraqi government of Iranian influence.

Here is Obama's tired ass Iraqi unity slant:

Quote: The Obama administration on Wednesday argued
that speaking of an independent Kurdistan
would actually harm the fight against the Islamic State,
which it refers to as ISIS.

"We believe a unified Iraq is a stronger Iraq,"
a State Department official told HuffPost in an email Horsepoop
"Iraq’s sovereign territory remains under threat from ISIS
and the only way to address this threat
is for all Iraqis -- Sunni, Shia, and Kurd -- to work together.”


Fat chance of that pipe dream working out.

Rand Paul,
Longtime Foe Of Nation Building, Is Ready Now To Redraw The Middle East


Quote:The libertarian-leaning senator has built a reputation
on his reluctance to intervene abroad,
a point he emphasizes as he travels the country
ahead of a likely White House bid in 2016.


Quote:But on Wednesday,
two weeks after telling a crowd of conservatives
that Republicans should give up the concept of nation building abroad Rofl
Paul called on the United States
to ship arms to the Kurds Guitar
with a promise to build them a nation Woohoo Kurdistan.

“Part of the problem is the Kurds aren’t getting enough arms,”
Paul told Breitbart News.
“The Kurds are the best fighters.
The arms are going through Baghdad to get to the Kurds
and they’re being siphoned off and they’re not getting what they need.
I think any arms coming from us or coming from any European countries
ought to go directly to the Kurds.”


Quote:He then endorsed redrawing the borders of Iraq and Syria
to form a new country,
exposing as he did the gaps in his understanding of the region.

"I would draw new lines for Kurdistan
and I would promise them a country," Paul said.


Read the rest of the article, it is excellent actually,
especially on the different mind sets of Iraqi Kurds
and Syrian Kurds and how they view the future.

Rand Paul is in over his head right now,
but bold enough to strike out with some originality,
regardless of the obvious misgivings in any true foreign policy experience.

Obama, on the other hand with his "Iraqi Unity"
is pandering to the Turks who don't want an independent Kurdistan.


Rand Paul at CPAC {from the above link}
Quote:"As conservatives, we should not succumb to the notion
that a government inept at home
will somehow become successful abroad.


That a government that can't even deliver mail
will somehow be able to create nations abroad,"
Paul told his mostly younger, more libertarian audience at CPAC.


"Without question we must be strong.
Without question we must defend ourselves.
I envision an America with a national defense unparalleled,
undefeatable Whip
and unencumbered by nation building."


Rand Paul contradicting his own foreign policy statements at CPAC
Quote:"I would draw new lines for Kurdistan
and I would promise them a country," Paul said.


I can't wait to hear what he has to say about dealing with Assad.
That should be tatsy news.

You can't ... "promise" an ethnic group their own country.
It is absurd.
but in that absurdity,
I agree with Kurdistan being free of the Iraqi Ghouls,
as it's own nation.
The Kurds, the Pesh Murgha are doing the real fighting against the ISIS maniacs.
But "nation building" all has to happen from within the Islamic Ghoul War cesspool.

Unified Iraq is bullshit Whip
Unified Syria is bullshit Whip
Promising anybody anything over there is bullshit Whip
Assad still has to die.
Israel still has to take out Iranian nuclear facilities.
Rand Paul needs to shut the fuck up with "promises".
You don't make a promise, you make a suggestive analogy and smile Smoke

Obama on the other hand
is just talking window dressing shit in global political media shoe shine with:
"Unified Iraq"
That is shoe polish on boots with no honest feet to fill them,
but everybody in Iraq and Syria trying to step into the leather all at once.


The Chain of Ghouls in the Mid East.

... and Rand Paul is the Republican dove candidate ...

The other shit heads want to go all Netanyahu on Iranian nuclear plants.

Hillary isn't loosing any sleep yet.

Obama still hasn't deployed ground troops.

Rand Paul,
learning to play hard ball.

Quote:New details have emerged about exactly how Hillary Clinton secured the homebrew private email servers she used as Secretary of State. The punchline? Clinton didn't encrypt her emails or use a certificate for her first three months running the State Department.

While the future presidential candidate was dodging reporters' questions and complaining about the inconvenience of carrying two phones, security experts at Venafi, a company that sells email security software, went back to January 2009 when Clinton took office and analyzed the server activity through the end of her cabinet term.

The findings are unsettling at best:


Based on TrustNet analyst, Venafi can conclude clintonemail.com was enabled for browser, smartphone, and tablet encryption since 2009 and can operate using encryption through at least 2018. However, for the first 3 months of Secretary Clinton's term, access to the server was not encrypted or authenticated with a digital certificate. During this time, Secretary Clinton travelled to China, Egypt, Israel, South Korea and other locations outside of the U.S.

As security expert Nic Cubrilovic told Gawker last week, "It is almost certain that at least some of the emails hosted at clintonemails.com were intercepted." It now sounds even more likely that emails she was sending while in places like Israel were intercepted. By whom? That remains a mystery.

In wake of Hillary email flap, State won't resist reopening FOIA case
Quote:The legal fallout over disclosures about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account continued Thursday, as the State Department acquiesced to a conservative watchdog group’s request to reopen a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking records about one of Clinton’s top aides.

The agency could soon face a wave of similar demands to reopen Freedom of Information Act requests and lawsuits in the wake of confirmation last week that Clinton used only a private email address and server as secretary and did not have an official “state.gov” account.

In a motion filed in federal district court in Washington Thursday afternoon, Judicial Watch asked Judge Emmet Sullivan to reopen a case the group agreed to dismiss last March, seeking records relating to the work arrangement of former Clinton deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin.

Quote:(Yaron Steinbuch)  Putin is on paternity leave! After days of rumors that mysteriously missing Russian President Vladimir Putin was sick or dodging a coup, a Swiss paper is reporting that the leader was in Lugano for the birth of his love child.

The paper Blick said uber-playboy Putin and his alleged paramour Alina Kabayeva, 32, a former Olympic gymnast, welcomed their baby in a private clinic in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino, The Daily Beast reported.

A Swiss radio station reported that Putin reserved two rooms at the fancy clinic—one for the new mommy and another for their bodyguards.

There were conflicting reports about whether the baby is a boy or girl.

The Italian Il Messaggero reported that the baby is the third child Putin has sired with Kabayeva. The other two were reportedly born in 2009 and 2012.

Putin was last seen in public on March 5 when he received Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi in Moscow.

The mystery may not be fully put to rest yet, however, as the Kremlin has denied that Putin recently fathered a child.

Dude.

The race is picking up steam in New Hampshire.
The circus of dick heads vying for a pot to piss in,
take a quick leak in the granite state:

[Image: bushwalker1.jpg?w=1000&h=743]


Recent polls show the two Republicans are vying for the top spot
in the crowded field of prospective candidates.
Bush has the support of 18% potential GOP primary voters in New Hampshire,
while Walker
was just behind at 15%, according to an NBC/Marist poll released last month.



Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry has also been in New Hampshire
for a busy two-day tour Thursday and Friday,
while Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas arrives Sunday
for a dinner in the northern part of the state,
followed by a breakfast in Manchester on Monday morning.

In New Hampshire, Jeb Bush leads with his chin

Quote:Bush seemed to be making a statement throughout the day
by running toward the press and embracing questions

Bush was doing three things with this approach.
First — and possibly foremost —
he was issuing a challenge to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker,
who was in the state at the same time.
Walker is the current darling of many in the Republican Party
and is increasingly viewed as the champion of its conservative wing
against the more moderate Bush.

But Walker — who at 47 is 15 years Bush’s junior —
has far less political experience, especially with the national media.
And Walker has already stumbled a few times in his few weeks
at the front of the very large 2016 Republican pack.

Bush’s open arms approach in New Hampshire accentuated his comfort
discussing a broad range of issues and his ability to stay cool under pressure.
It will serve as a contrast with Walker,
if the Wisconsin pol does not adapt the same style...


Being open with the press also allows Bush
to accentuate another stylistic contrast he is drawing with Walker —
allowing Bush to cast himself as the conciliatory, hopeful candidate Whip
who wants to bring the country together.
Walker, who is running on his ability to fight public sector unions in Wisconsin,
took a more pointed tone on Friday morning,
calling Bush a “name from the past.”  Flush


Bush’s aides believe they can put him in almost any setting
and that he’ll acquit himself well.
And Bush believes it too.

He said that the next president, whether it is a “he or she,”  Whistle
will have to show that they “understand why people are angry”
but also “forge consensus to solve these problems so people aren’t as angry.”


Scott Walker is a  Pennywise
http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2015/mar/...ivals-for/

Quote:The still-unofficial campaigns of several Republicans have assembled internal memos,
research papers and detailed spreadsheets
that highlight and track Walker's shifts on positions
from immigration to ethanol to abortion.

They say Walker has a broad pattern of flip-flopping
that will be his greatest vulnerability.


"Voters still don't know the real Scott Walker,"
said veteran Republican operative John Feehery,
who is not aligned with any of the potential candidates.
"And if he thinks he can get them to like him merely by saying things that they want to hear,
he is going to run into the same problem
that plagued Mitt Romney: authenticity."


Dick-head Perry
http://www.texastribune.org/2015/03/14/p...hampshire/
Quote:“I’ll be spending a lot of time,
not just in Iowa and South Carolina and New Hampshire,
but I’ll be in Florida and California
and go home and rest in Texas from time to time,” he said.

On Saturday morning, Walker and Bush were on the front pages
of the state’s two main newspapers.
Perry's visit barely registered.


Perry comes out swinging against Putin
http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/rick...62673.html
Here's what Perry recommends doing to counter Putin's recent aggression:

Quote:Provide lethal aid to the Ukrainians so they can defend themselves

Increase sanctions,
including reconsidering Russia’s continued access
to the SWIFT international banking system

Fast track permits for LNG export facilities on the East Coast
to flood the European market with American natural gas.

Lead the debate in NATO to allow a permanent deployment
of U.S. and NATO allies to Poland and the Baltics
to protect our allies and assets in the area,

Quote:"Back in Washington there's a diet that is now very, very popular," said Cruz.
"It's called the Obama Diet.
Works very, very well.
You simply let Putin eat your lunch every day."

"I'm convinced we're going to win in 2014 and 2016 is going to be even better,"
Cruz said,
predicting Obamacare would proper the GOP to victories in the next two elections.

His next comment provoked the cheers of "Run Ted! Run!" from the crowd. Rofl

"In the year 2017,
a Republican president in the Rose Garden is going to sign a bill
repealing every word of Obamacare!"

Cruz contrasted Obama's approach with what he said was
President Ronald Regan's "simple" Cold War strategy of
"we win, they lose."

"It's almost as if President Obama read that and got it backwards," Cruz said

According to Cruz,
the U.S. should confront Putin for his push into Ukraine
by "putting anti ballistic missile batteries in Poland and the Czech Republic"  Rofl
and approving measures to increase our national gas exports
as an attack on the Russian economy.

Walker Is Attacking Wisconsin Workers Because Of Putin, ISIS

Quote:While the spineless Scott Walker
couldn't even make himself admit that President Barack Obama might
- just might - love America,
he did have a lot to say at a fundraiser in New York.
But as is the norm for Walker, it was crazy talk.

Noteworthy, Walker argued that when Reagan
fired the PATCO air-traffic controllers over their illegal strike,
he was sending a message of toughness to Democrats
and unions at home
as well as our Soviet enemies abroad.  Rofl

Similarly, Walker believes his stance against unions in Wisconsin
would be a signal of toughness to Islamic jihadists and Russia’s Vladimir Putin Whip

Who needs to worry about Putin invading America or terrorists attacking us
when Walker has already destroyed everything of value?

Then again, if Putin or Islamic terrorists even knew who Walker is,
he might be able to incapacitate them
by making them laugh themselves to death.

Touting his positive economic message might be problematic for Walker.
Walker has boldly kicked the can so far down the road
that he can't even make payments on the state's debts.

It's becoming clearer that Walker's campaign strategy is
"If you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit."



http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/...ign-policy
Quote:The next morning on CNBC,
Walker added,
“When [Reagan] fired the air-traffic controllers early in his presidency, there’s not a person,
not just an American, but around the world,
that as an ally didn’t know we were serious and would stand with them.
But equally, if not more importantly, in –
in USSR at that time and the Soviet Union, now Russia, and Iran,
and elsewhere,
they knew not to mess with us.” :thwack:

But if the Wisconsin Republican seriously believes an anti-labor agenda
is part of an effective foreign-policy posture,
he’s delusional.
 
but also because Walker is under the impression that he can intimidate
“Islamic jihadists and Russia’s Vladimir Putin”
by undermining labor unions more than Reagan did.
Clearly, foreign policy isn’t the governor’s forte,
but this is both childish and dangerously wrong.

After saying in his re-election bid that he wouldn’t push so-called right-to-work legislation,
Gov. Scott Walker committed Friday to signing it,
acting after GOP leaders fast-tracked the proposal for a Senate vote next week.


Walker as a lawmaker sponsored the labor legislation two decades ago
and as governor was careful never to say he would veto it,
but as recently as September he said he wouldn’t be “supporting it in this session.”

That changed Friday as Walker’s fellow Republicans in the Legislature made clear
they would act on the issue at a time when the governor has won a second term
and is spending more time outside the state pursuing the presidency.

To borrow the governor’s reasoning,
what will “Islamic jihadists and Russia’s Vladimir Putin”
think about Scott Walker publicly committing to one course of action,
and then choosing to do the exact opposite soon after?

When It Comes to Foreign Policy, Is Jeb Bush His Brother’s Keeper?

When it comes to the Islamic State, for instance,
Bush has blasted Obama’s strategy for combating the militants

or weighing in on the hot-button debate
over whether to send in American ground troops.

Bush’s wife is Mexican, and he speaks fluent Spanish,
both traits likely to appeal to at least portions of the Hispanic community.

GW Bush jokingly referred to Hillary Clinton as his “sister-in-law,”

but said he was “absolutely” sure
Jeb could beat her in a head-to-head matchup.

Ted Cruz tells NASA chief to focus less on climate change and more on space exploration (+video)

The prominent climate change skeptic butted heads with the NASA chief over the space agency's two core missions, as Cruz continued to advocate a 'more space, less Earth' strategy.
By Henry Gass, Staff writer  March 13, 2015

Quote:NASA is one of the largest and most well-known agencies in the US government. But while many Americans associate the famous agency with moon walkers, space shuttles, and dramatic countdowns from 10, the agency actually has two clearly defined missions: Simply put, it is NASA's job to both study space from Earth and to study Earth from space.

And it was these two core missions that Sen. Ted Cruz wanted to discuss with NASA Administrator Charles Bolden in a Senate subcommittee hearing yesterday. More specifically, how the two missions should be funded next year.

Senator Cruz, ® of Texas, became the new chair of the Senate's subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness when the Republican Party took control of the chamber in January. Since that time, he has been pushing the agency to adopt a "more space, less Earth" strategy.

Recommended:  Are you a space whiz? Take our quiz! 

His position ran into some opposition on Capitol Hill yesterday during the hearing on President Obama's $18.5 billion budget request for NASA for fiscal 2016, when he told Mr. Bolden he'd like to start "by asking a general question."

"In your judgment, what is the core mission of NASA?" Cruz asked Bolden, according to the National Journal.

Bolden replied that he'd been contemplating that mission over the past few days, including reading over the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958, which created the agency.

"Our core mission from the very beginning has been to investigate, explore space and the Earth environment, and to help us make this place a better place," Bolden said.

The answer did not seem to satisfy Cruz, according to the National Journal, who replied that "almost any American would agree that the core function of NASA is to explore space."

"That's what inspires little boys and little girls across this country," Cruz added. "I am concerned that NASA in the current environment has lost its full focus on that core mission."

Cruz then pointed to a chart behind him illustrating that, since 2009, NASA funding for Earth sciences has seen a 41 percent increase, while funding for exploration and space operations has seen a 7.6 percent decrease.

"In my judgment, this does not represent a fair or appropriate allocation of resources, that it is shifting resources away from the core functions of NASA to other functions," Cruz said. "Do you share that assessment?"

Bolden, who decides how to allocate NASA's annual budget, replied, chuckling, that "there's a lot of chartsmanship" regarding NASA's funding. The decrease in space exploration funding, for example, was "somewhat intentional" because the agency was trying to get the cost of exploration down as it reaches farther out into the solar system. NASA's now-defunct space shuttles cost the agency $2 billion a year to maintain whether they flew or not, Bolden said. Today, NASA has a $6.6 billion contract with private companies Boeing and SpaceX that will provide for 16 human spaceflights over a span of three to four years.

"So, by my statement, I was not acknowledging that I agree with the numbers on the chart," Bolden said. "I don't want everyone to say I accept the numbers on the chart."

Bolden added that more money for Earth-science research is a good thing, and that the increases have "enabled us to understand our planet far better than we ever did before."

Cruz drew headlines in January when he was made chair of the Senate space and science subcommittee despite a long history of climate change skepticism, including telling CNN in a February 2014 interview that there was no data to support the existence of climate change.

"The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming," Cruz said in the CNN interview. "Contrary to all the theories that they are expounding, there should have been warming over the last 15 years. It hasn’t happened."

NASA's research on Earth science is extensive, with the agency spending more than $1 billion annually on Earth science, according to The Washington Post. NASA facilities themselves are also under imminent threat from climate change, in particular the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., the launching site for the agency's famous Apollo Program missions to the moon.

Since 2003, nearly 100 feet of beach next to the launch pads have been lost to sea level rise, according to CBS News. NASA is now spending $2.8 million on a new mile-long dune to protect the site's launch pads. Three more dunes are also planned.

"We can't go anywhere if the Kennedy Space Center goes underwater and we don't know it—and that's understanding our environment," Bolden said at yesterday's hearing. "It is absolutely critical that we understand Earth environment because this is the only place that we have to live."

NASA also has made tough decisions recently prioritizing some space exploration missions over Earth science research. In its 2015 budget proposal the agency dropped a bombshell proposal to cut funding for the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), a 747 jetliner equipped with a 8.2-foot telescope that can make observations about infrared-absorbing water vapor in the Earth's atmosphere.

At the time, Bolden said the cut to SOFIA funding was a result of the agency having to prioritize other programs, such as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) – successor to the Hubble Space Telescope – and a 2020 Mars rover mission.

"It turned out that we had to make very difficult choices about where we go with astrophysics and planetary science and Earth science, and SOFIA happened to be what fell off the plate this time," he said shortly after the budget proposal came out.

An Open Letter to hdr22@clintonemail.com
Quote:WASHINGTON — SINCE open letters to secretive and duplicitous regimes are in fashion, we would like to post an Open Letter to the Leaders of the Clinton Republic of Chappaqua:

It has come to our attention while observing your machinations during your attempted restoration that you may not fully understand our constitutional system. Thus, we are writing to bring to your attention two features of our democracy: The importance of preserving historical records and the ill-advised gluttony of an American feminist icon wallowing in regressive Middle Eastern states’ payola.

You should seriously consider these characteristics of our nation as the Campaign-That-Must-Not-Be-Named progresses.

If you, Hillary Rodham Clinton, are willing to cite your mother’s funeral to get sympathy for ill-advisedly deleting 30,000 emails, it just makes us want to sigh: O.K., just take it. If you want it that bad, go ahead and be president and leave us in peace. (Or war, if you have your hawkish way.) You’re still idling on the runway, but we’re already jet-lagged. It’s all so drearily familiar that I know we’re only moments away from James Carville writing a column in David Brock’s Media Matters, headlined, “In Private, Hillary’s Really a Hoot.”

When you grin and call out to your supporters, like at the Emily’s List anniversary gala, “Don’t you someday want to see a woman president of the United States of America?” the answer is: Yes, it would be thrilling.

But therein lies the rub.

What is the trade-off that will be exacted by the Chappaqua Republic for that yearned-for moment? When the Rogue State of Bill began demonizing Monica Lewinsky as a troubled stalker, you knew you could count on the complicity of feminists and Democratic women in Congress. Bill’s female cabinet members and feminist supporters had no choice but to accept the unappetizing quid pro quo: The Clintons would give women progressive public policies as long as the women didn’t assail Bill for his regressive private behavior with women.

Now you, Hillary, are following the same disheartening “We’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse” pattern. You started the “Guernica” press conference defending your indefensible droit du seigneur over your State Department emails by referring to women’s rights and denouncing the letter to Iran from Republican senators as “out of step with the best traditions of American leadership.”

None of what you said made any sense. Keeping a single account mingling business and personal with your own server wasn’t about “convenience.” It was about expedience. You became judge and jury on what’s relevant because you didn’t want to leave digital fingerprints for others to retrace. You could have had Huma carry two devices if you really couldn’t hoist an extra few ounces. You insisted on piggybacking on Bill’s server, even though his aides were worried about hackers, because you were gaming the system for 2016. (Or even 2012.)

Suffused with paranoia and pre-emptive defensiveness, you shrugged off The One’s high-minded call for the Most Transparent Administration in History.

It depends upon what the meaning of @ is.

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.”

You exploit our better angels and our desire for a finer country and our fear of the anarchists and haters in Congress.

Because you assume that if it’s good for the Clintons, it’s good for the world, you’re always tangling up government policy with your own needs, desires, deceptions, marital bargains and gremlins.

Instead of raising us up by behaving like exemplary, sterling people, you bring us down to your own level, a place of blurred lines and fungible ethics and sleazy associates. Your family’s foundation gobbles tens of millions from Saudi Arabia and other repressive regimes, whose unspoken message is: “We’re going to give you money to go improve the world. Now leave us alone to go persecute women.”

That’s an uncomfortable echo of a Clintonian trade-off, which goes: “We’re going to give you the first woman president who will improve the country. Now leave us alone to break any rules we please.”

Bill, your pathology is more human and interesting. It’s almost like you need to create messes to see if your extraordinary political gifts can get you out of them. It’s a fatherless boy’s “How Much Do You Love Me?” syndrome. Do you love me enough to let me get away with this?

Hillary, your syndrome is less mortal, more regal, a matter of “What Is Hillary Owed?” Ronald Reagan seemed like an ancient king, as one aide put it, gliding across the landscape. You seem like an annoyed queen, radiating irritation at anyone who tries to hold you accountable. You’re less rhetorically talented than Bill but more controlling, so it’s harder for you to navigate out of tough spots.

No Drama Obama and his advisers are clearly appalled to be drawn into your shadowy shenanigans, just as Al Gore once was. Whatever else you say about this president, he has no shadows.

We hope this letter enriches your knowledge of our constitutional system and promotes mutual understanding and clarity as the campaign progresses.

Sincerely,

America

Quote:Repeating allegations he made on Fox and Friends earlier this week (video below), Ed Klein has written in the New York Post that sources tell him President Obama's closest adviser Valerie Jarrett was the behind the leaks of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail address during her time as secretary of state. According to Klein's contacts, the email leak is part of a Jarrett-led Obama effort to deny Hillary the Democratic nomination for president.

And, there may be more scandals coming, according to Klein:


[A]t Jarrett’s behest, 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 the e-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.

Apparently, the latest round of political infighting was instigated by the 2014 mid-term elections. Klein's sources say Valerie Jarrett felt that it was the Clintons behind the multitude of Democratic Party candidates keeping the President at arms length during their campaigns. Jarrett felt that attitude was behind the party's awful showing, and that it was created by the Clintons to wrest the party leadership from the hands of the Obamas.

Quote:WASHINGTON — The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject requests for records to that office.

The White House said the cleanup of FOIA regulations is consistent with court rulings that hold that the office is not subject to the transparency law. The office handles, among other things, White House record-keeping duties like the archiving of e-mails.

But the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming on National Freedom of Information Day and during a national debate over the preservation of Obama administration records. It's also Sunshine Week, an effort by news organizations and watchdog groups to highlight issues of government transparency.

"The irony of this being Sunshine Week is not lost on me," said Anne Weismann of the liberal Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW.

"It is completely out of step with the president's supposed commitment to transparency," she said. "That is a critical office, especially if you want to know, for example, how the White House is dealing with e-mail."

Quote:Having attacked its "closest ally" UK for "constant accomodation" with China, we suspect President Obama will be greatly displeased at yet another close-ally's decision to partner up with the Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). As The Australian reports, "make no mistake," the decision by Australia's Abbott government to sign on for negotiations to join China’s regional bank, foreshadowed by Tony Abbott at the weekend,  "represents a colossal defeat for the Obama administration’s incompetent, distracted, ham-fisted dip­lomacy in Asia."

As The Australian's Greg Sheridan writes Op-Ed,

The decision by the Abbott government to sign on for negotiations to join China’s regional bank, foreshadowed by Tony Abbott at the weekend, represents another defeat for Barack Obama’s diplomacy in Asia.

The Abbott government is right to make this decision. It had well-founded concerns about the vague and unsatisfactory governance arrangements of the institution when Beijing first invited Canberra to join.

Those arrangements have ­improved since then and Australia is only signing on to negotiate terms of accession.

If the terms are no good, Australia will ultimately walk away.

Canberra’s move follows similar decisions by Britain, Singapore, India and New Zealand.

Make no mistake — all this represents a colossal defeat for the Obama administration’s incompetent, distracted, ham-fisted dip­lomacy in Asia.

The Obama administration didn’t want Australia to sign up for the China-led AIIB. The Abbott government rightly feels that it owes Obama nothing.

Obama went out of his way to embarrass the Prime Minister politically on climate change with a rogue speech at the G20 summit in Brisbane.

The speech had been billed as dealing with American leadership in Asia and instead was full of ­material designed to embarrass Abbott.

Since then, the Abbott government has felt absolutely zero subjective good will for Obama.

This is an outlook shared by many American allies.

It’s important to get all the distinctions right here.

The Abbott government operates foreign policy in Australia’s national interest.

That includes full fidelity to the American ­alliance and to supporting US strategic leadership.

But the Obama administration has neither the continuous presence, nor the tactical wherewithal nor the store of goodwill or personal relationships to carry Canberra, or other allies, on non-essential matters.

The Obama administration has tried to convince both its friends and ­allies not to join the China Bank.

This was probably a bad call in itself, but, as so often with the Obama administration, it was a bad call badly implemented.

The characteristically bad implementation has helped shred Obama’s diplomatic credibility.

The Chinese have been the US’s best friends in Asia, diplomatically. Their territorial aggressiveness in the East and South China Seas has driven Asia to embrace America’s security role more tightly than ever.

The American military are now the best American diplomats in Asia by far.

Such prestige as the US enjoys in Asia these days rests disproportionately on the shoulders of the US military.

Obama has neglected and mistreated allies and as a result Washington has much less influence than previously.

The saga of the China Bank is almost a textbook case of the failure of Obama’s foreign policy.

As we have detailed recently, Australia is in trouble economically and its pivot to China makes perfect self-preservation sense... as Sheridan notes:Obama treats allies shabbily and as a result he loses influence with them and then seems perpetually surprised at this outcome.

The Asian professionals in Washington regard the Obama administration as particularly ineffective in Asia.

The consensus is that the Obama White House is insular, isolated, inward-looking, focused on the President’s personal image and ineffective in foreign policy.

De-dollarization continues... As Simon Black recently concluded, now we can see words are turning into action...

Britain and Australia might be too polite to tell the US straight up– “Look, you have $18.1 trillion in official debt, you have $42 trillion in unfunded liabilities, and you’re kind of a dick. I’m dumping you.”

So instead they’re going with the “it’s not you, it’s me” approach.

But to anyone paying attention, it’s pretty obvious where this trend is going.

It won’t be long before other western nations jump on the anti-dollar bandwagon with action and not just words.
*  *  *
Bottom line: this isn’t theory or conjecture anymore. Every shred of objective evidence suggests that the dollar’s dominance is coming to an end.

All I can say is I hope there is a 'Next' president of The United States.
And I hope this isn't really going where it looks like it could go.  You've got to ask, "What's the rational behind the need to issue such orders"? If one wanted to simply take over a country, these  would do it!
               

                             


                              THIS IS INFORMATION THAT EVERY PERSON IN THIS COUNTRY SHOULD KNOW AND  STOP THINKING "IT WILL NOT HAPPEN HERE"
  For the SHOCK of your life, take a moment to comprehend what you read below .  During our lifetimes, all Presidents have issued Executive  Orders.  For various reasons, some have issued more than others.  These  things will directly affect us all for years to come.
                           
                            Ike - 2 in 8 years
                            Kennedy - 4 in 3 years
                            LBJ - 4 in 5 years
                            Nixon - 1 in 6 years
                            Ford - 3 in 2 years
                            Carter - 3 in 4 years
                            Reagan - 5 in 8 years
                            Bush - 3 in 4 years
                            Clinton - 15 in 8 years
                            George W. Bush - 62 in 8 years
                            Obama - 923 in his until-now 51 months in office. That's more than 18  per month. If he continues jamming through his "I've got a pen and a phone". Executive Orders at the same pace as the past 51 months, he'll have more than 1730 Exec. Orders attached to his legacy before his ruinous 96 months are over.
                           
                            Read some of them below - unbelievable. Next step - dictatorship (Looks like we're there already.) If you don't understand the implications, you're not paying attention. Why did all the other presidents during the past 100 years not feel it necessary to INCREASE GOVERNMENTS POWER OVER THE PEOPLE through an ever increasing number of  Executive Orders? This is really very scary.  And most Americans have absolutely no idea it's happening.
                           
                            YES, THERE IS A REASON THIS PRESIDENT IS DETERMINED TO TAKE CONTROL AWAY FROM THE CONGRESS.
                            Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a small number of Democrat Senators have questioned him as well.
                            WHAT IS OBAMA REALLY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH?  Remember what he told Russia's Putin: "I'll be more flexible after I'm re-elected."
                           
                            Now look at these:
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 -- allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways, bridges and seaports.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 -- allows the government to seize and control the electronic and communication media.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 -- allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 -- allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 -- allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 -- allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 -- designates the registration of all persons. Postmaster General to operate a national registration.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 -- allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 -- allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned and establish new locations for populations. (remember his comment on moving people to larger cities, so they could be "taken care of more easily"--AKA: control)
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 -- allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 -- assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative
                            Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 -- specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 -- grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions and to advise and assist the President.
                           
                            EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 -- allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. Financial institutions in any undefined national emergency.  It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. And just what might the President consider a "state of emergency"? This is scary stuff.
                           
                            Feel free to verify the "executive orders" at will.....and these are just the major ones.  I'm sure you've all heard the tale of the "Frog in the
                            Pot of Water" story. .... Watch Obama's actions.  Pay less attention to his words.  By his actions he will show you where his America is headed.
                           
                            Obama has issued executive orders that seek to "harmonize" U.S.Economic regulations with the rest of the world. These executive orders are yet another incremental step in the effort to push us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system.
                           
                            Obama used the stage at the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther Kings "I have a dream speech" to announce two new executive orders infringing on your second amendment rights.  The first bans the importation of antique military firearms for sale to sportsmen and collectors.  He intentionally mislabels them military grade weapons to deceive the "sheeple," but make no mistake . . . the order was written specifically to ban the importation of surplus M1 carbines, M1 Garand, 1903 Springfield and other antiques coveted by collectors and sport shooters.  This order is the death knell for the civilian marksmanship program.  Congress had previously passed the sportsman protection act in 1986 which among other things guaranteed the importation of the historic relics for collectors and the CMP would not be impeded by unreasonable regulations.
                           
                            But Emperor Obama does not bend to the will of the people or the rule of law.
                            He will impose on his subjects whatever he wishes, whenever he wishes. Kind of like Papa Joe Stalin or the short Austrian with the funky mustache.
                           
                            Unfortunately, most Americans have absolutely no idea what's happening. The American people need to understand Barack Obama is constantly looking for ways to integrate the United States more deeply with the rest of the world. The globalization of the world economy has accelerated under Obama, and this latest executive order represents a fundamental change in U.S. economic policy.  Now federal regulators will be required to "harmonize" their work with the international community.
                           
                            Obama admires Communist Saul Alinsky and follows religiously his Sixteen Rules for Radicals."
                            IF THIS IS DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE, PROVE TO YOURSELF IT'S WRONG – Google it.

If Obama is part of a -- "deny Hillary the Democratic nomination for president"

One can take it or leave it leave with this polling graph,

Holy smoke-ums --- Hillary is a shoo-in for Demo nomination thus far.
Biden is choking in Hillary's dust.

Dead heat between Bush and Walker,

This McClatchy/Marist poll sets Clinton against the Republican wolf pack.

Quote:The Netanyahu campaign assumed the prime minister
would get a bump in support after his speech
before a joint meeting of Congress two weeks ago,

and warned that the United States was about to sign a disastrous pact
that would not halt Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

His supporters boasted of his Churchillian skills as a master orator.
Their high hopes were raised as a rapturous Congress
gave him repeated standing ovations.
Yet the speech did little to move the electorate —
even as it angered the White House and congressional Democrats
and undermined bipartisan relations Whip
between Israel and its closest ally.

“It’s clear that Netanyahu thought what he did in Washington would help him,
but it didn’t do him any good at home,”
said Yehuda Ben Meir,
a director at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv
.



Obama is the only president to stand up to the Israeli influence on Washington.

despair and disappointment -

back to the future with Vladimir Putin,
note the fine print
well down in the article:

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2015/03...l-m17.html

Quote:Even as Putin charged Washington with plotting the Kiev putsch
and laid out Russian fears of nuclear annihilation at the hands of NATO,
he grotesquely referred to US officials as “our American friends and partners.”

Rofl

the fine print:

Quote:The aggressive role of imperialism
is highlighted by discussion in US ruling circles of adopting a policy
of aggressive nuclear war.

Quote:This was summarized in a 2006 article by two professors,
Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, in Foreign Affairs,
the US political establishment’s leading foreign policy journal.

“It will probably soon be possible for the United States
to destroy the long-range nuclear arsenals of Russia and China with a first strike,”
they wrote.

Quote:Due to the disintegration of Russian infrastructure after the restoration of capitalism,
Russia had only a few nuclear bomber bases or mobile missile launchers;
its ballistic missile submarines largely spent their time motionless in port.

These could all be obliterated by a massive, preemptive US nuclear strike.

Washington could now contemplate a preemptive nuclear strike
to disarm Russia and China,
according to Lieber and Press.
Citing computer models of nuclear war Horsepoop
they wrote that a “surprise [nuclear] attack
would have a good chance of destroying
every Russian bomber base, submarine, and ICBM.”

They added that China’s nuclear arsenal,
lacking mobile land-based nuclear missiles or effective ballistic missile submarines,
“is even more vulnerable to a US attack.”

They did also note, however, concerns about such a policy
in some US foreign policy circles:

“Russia and China will work furiously to reduce their vulnerability
by building more missiles Guitar
submarines, and bombers  :SJ:
putting more warheads Smokeon each weapon Smoke
keeping their nuclear forces on higher peacetime levels of alert;
and adopting hair-trigger retaliatory policies…



The presidential rhetoric turns towards
who is the best candidate
to stand up to Putin
and play puppy love with the next Israeli PM.

Former IDF chief hints he stood in way of Iran attack

Quote:Gantz, who retired in February after 38 years of service,
also revealed a dispute between the political leadership,
which was moving toward a military strike,
and the IDF,  Whistle
opposed to such a move.

Despite the disagreement,
the army would implement such a strike if ordered to do so by the political leadership,
Gantz affirmed.

He said then that Israel “unequivocally” had the capacity to strike Iran’s nuclear infrastructure, and that “we’ll know how to act when needed.”

Like his predecessor Gabi Ashkenazi, though,
Gantz did not believe that the midnight hour Whip
had arrived during his four-year term.
He apparently disagreed with former defense minister Ehud Barak,

Beelze-Bibi retakes the throne in Israel.
Satanyahu will be the man that drops the bomb on Iranian nuclear facilities,
and ultimately takes down Assad.
Personally I think it is a big mistake by the Israeli population,
they needed a new face for certain
but then we had GW Bush for 8 years,
and now Jeb is front and center to take the republican nomination.



The Fracturing of Vladimir Putin Whip

Meanwhile, Putin has been on a vacation to avoid the Nemtsov assassination,
conveniently blamed on Chechens.

In Russia you maintain your power base by murdering all your opponents.
Putin is the Great Assassin in Russia Whip

The next American president will have to deal directly with the Kremlin Kriminals,
who are going to stranglehold Russia into the next decade.

The fracturing of Vladimir Putin as the power mogul in Russia has begun though.
Slowly but surely he will fall in Russian public opinion,
and as well in global opinion.

How many "Chechen terrorists" can Putin dredge up from the FSB gutter?

Take the time to read this article,
as it unveils the trouble to come for Putin.


http://foreignpolicy.com/2015/03/16/a-sh...rov-elite/
A Showdown in Moscow’s Power Elite

Quote:Nemtsov’s murder, they declared,
was actually ordered by Adam Osmayev,
the Chechen leader of a Ukrainian battalion  Rofl
that has been fighting pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Naughty

Quote:That theory was immediately rejected by the friends and relatives of Nemtsov.
The socialite-turned-oppositionist Ksenia Sobchak,
who knew Nemtsov well,
declared that the charges against Osmayev
had more to do with anti-Ukrainian propaganda than with a viable scenario.

(Among other things, the FSB claim failed to explain why
a pro-Ukrainian Chechen would have targeted Nemtsov,
who was a strong critic of Moscow’s policies in Ukraine.)  Whip

Sobchak recently had to hire personal bodyguards
after her own name turned up on a reported hit list.

Quote:The arrests have prompted a flurry of speculation about a rift within Russia’s power elite.
On one side is Kadyrov,
a brutal autocrat who has kept tight control over his fractious republic
with the blessing of President Vladimir Putin.

On the other is a coterie of top-ranking Moscow security officials who, it’s said,
have long resented Kadyrov’s inroads into areas
they consider their own preserve.

Still, until recently the police and the FSB (the Federal Security Service,)
had shown a notable lack of interest in calling Kadyrov’s loyalists to order.
Now, at a stroke, all that has changed. Whip

After the news of his men’s arrest broke,
Kadyrov waited almost a day before issuing a reaction ...
He then published a post to his Instagram account
in which he explicitly defended the main suspect,
calling Dadayev
a “patriot of Russia.”

Quote:never before has Putin’s Russia experienced the murder
of such a high-profile politician (and right in the heart of Moscow at that).
The mysterious vanishing act of Putin himself,
who has just re-appeared in public after staying out of sight for nearly 10 days,
added to the jitters.

Quote:Kadyrov’s declaration of support for the lead suspect
was a clear signal to his opponents:
Putin’s man in Chechnya is not happy that his men have been humiliated in Moscow.

Images of security forces with Russian tricolor badges on their uniforms
hauling the bearded Chechens into court in handcuffs,
arms twisted behind their backs,
astonished many viewers.

Quote:“For the first time in his 15-year long rule Putin Horsepoop
has run into a really serious problem:
a virtually open conflict
between the two pillars of his power
the federal security establishment and Ramzan Kadyrov.”



http://www.newsweek.com/was-nemtsov-murd...tin-313829
Was Nemtsov’s Murder a Warning to Putin?
Quote:Whichever scenario is more accurate,
Nemtsov’s death has surely closed off a more liberal course for Putin.

The president is now more reliant than ever on the hardliners around him,
and by extension on those who have publicly driven the violence in Ukraine.

Nemtsov was the first of those closely associated with former president Boris Yeltsin
to have suffered a politically linked death.
Others more clearly associated with the Yeltsin clique will have drawn their own conclusions.

The president has spoken no conciliatory words beyond his first,
and surely minimal, condemnation.
The implication is that he can more easily ignore the liberals than the nationalist radicals.

Whether Putin has chosen or just accepted this hardline course,
he cannot now change it without breaking with a part of his ruling circle.

{Russian} Official Raises Doubts on Confession in Nemtsov Case
Quote:MOSCOW — A member of the Kremlin’s advisory council Whip
on human rights
said on Wednesday that the main suspect in the shooting death
of a high-profile opposition figure
was most likely forced to confess under duress,
and that his two cousins in detention had been tortured.

Quote:After visiting the three Chechens,
who were among five suspects imprisoned on Sunday in Lefortovo Prison in Moscow,
Andrei Babushkin, a rights activist,
said that the men had suffered multiple injuries after their arrest.

In a summary of the visit posted on the council’s website,
Mr. Babushkin also reported that another man arrested at the same time as Zaur S. Dadayev,
the main suspect,
had disappeared and said that he had asked Russia’s top law enforcement agency
to account for his whereabouts.

The 40-member presidential council —
officially the Council Under the President of the Russian Federation
for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights —

has a reputation for a certain degree of independence
and a real interest in some human rights issues like the treatment of prisoners.
Not all members sign every statement,
but rights experts said overall committee members do serious, trusted work.

The report caused an immediate stir in the Russian government.

The Investigative Committee, which is responsible for looking into the Feb. 27 killing
of the opposition figure, Boris Y. Nemtsov, near the Kremlin,
accused Mr. Babushkin and Eva Merkacheva, Whip
another rights official,  Whip
of violating the law. Whip

The statement issued by the committee questioned the motives
of Mr. Babushkin and Ms. Merkacheva,
hinting that they could face charges of trying to hinder the investigation of a crime,
which carries a possible jail sentence of up to six months.

Mr. Babushkin said Mr. Dadayev had told him that after he was arrested on March 5, he was starved, given only sips of water three or four times a day and left hooded until he was taken to Moscow for his court appearance on Sunday.

Quote:“There are reasonable grounds to believe that Dadayev and the Gubashevs were tortured,”
Mr. Babushkin wrote.


Putin with Chechen leader Kadyrov
[Image: ?m=02&d=20081017&t=2&i=6425684&w=&fh=&fw...P_0_RUSSIA]

Quote:In 1996, Chechnya won effective independence from Russia
after a 20 month-war in which tens of thousands were killed.

Three years later Russia's then-prime minister Vladimir Putin
moved troops into Chechnya to retake the region.

During Putin's subsequent presidency from 2000-2008,
the rebellion was extinguished.


It would be quite a sight to see Hillary in a global political showdown
with Putin
if she gets elected.
Be it Hillary or Bush,
the claws of the Eagle will have to scar the face of the Bear.

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitl...yahu-msnbc
Quote:MSNBC hosts and guests reacted with fury over Benjamin Netanyahu's victory on Tuesday night, describing it as "polarizing," a modern "southern strategy" and an appeal to "racism." Appearing on NewsNation, Wednesday, with Tamron Hall, London Professor Fawaz Gerges decried the Israeli Prime Minister's "use of fear, the use of xenophobia and racism against a significant segment of Israeli citizens, warning Jewish voters that Arabs were flooding the polls."

This prompted no response or push back from Hall.  Speaking of the frosty relationship between the President and Netanyahu, Gerges concluded, "The reality is, the question is what will the Obama administration do? Obama, another point is that Obama has been correct." On Andrea Mitchell Reports, Atlantic contributor Jeffrey Goldberg sneered that the Prime Minister "played the Israeli version of a southern strategy and basically tried to scare his base into coming out and giving their votes to him by saying, essentially 'the Arabs are coming!"

On Tuesday night, it was clear that Netanyahu was on his way to a resounding victory. Despite this, All In anchor Chris Hayes seemed to be in denial. He insisted, "Regardless of the outcome however, there's no question this election...did not go the way he planned." Didn't go "the way he planned?" The result was a resounding victory.

In an opening commentary, Hayes assailed the Israeli politician's U.S.-style "demagoguery":


CHRIS HAYES:  Posting on Facebook about the left-wing conspiracy funding his opposition, vowing at a right-wing rally never to cede control of the occupied territories, and yesterday, finally admitting what many of his critics have long suspected -- if he continues as prime minister, Netanyahu would block the formation of a sovereign Palestinian state.  In what appeared to be a panicked last-ditch ploy to turn out right wing voters today, he took another page in the American playbook, resorting to demagoguery. Netanyahu warned supporters, quote, "Right-rule is in danger. Arab voters are streaming in huge quantities to the polling stations. The left-wing organizations are bringing them in buses."

Offering the ultimate liberal insult, Hayes concluded that Netanyahu "is Israel's George W. Bush."

Federal Judge Admonished DOJ Over Apparent Deception: ‘I Was Made to Look like an Idiot’
Quote:BROWNSVILLE, Texas — The U.S. Government lied to a federal judge, misrepresented facts and illegally gave 100,081 illegal aliens immigration status despite a pending lawsuit and an injunction. That is the argument that attorneys representing Texas and more than two dozen other states made.

During the heated court hearing Andrew Hanen, a U.S. District Court Judge, said that the apparent violation had made him look like an idiot since he initially believed the U.S. Government.

In a heated court hearing Angela Colmonero from the Texas Attorney General’s office stated that Texas had acted promptly in November 2014 upon learning of President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty and had followed all the timelines set forth with a sense of urgency.

“This was done to preserve the status quo and to prevent irreparable damage to the state,” Colmonero said referring to the cost that the individuals would bring and to the incentive for further illegal immigration. “You can’t put toothpaste back in the tube.”

During the hearings leading to an injunction handed down by Judge Hanen, attorney’s with the Department of Justice claimed that if an injunction was filed nothing would be done. That wasn’t the case, the Texas attorney said.

“The defendant did the exact opposite and gave 100,000 renewals for a term of three years under the expanded DACA,” Colmonero said. “The defendant didn’t inform the court until March 3—15 days after the injunction was filed.”

According to Colmonero’s statements, the program known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) was implemented in 2012; how

where a lot of Jews were torched in ovens,
{I have been to Dachau at least 7 times}
but the number, be it 6 million  or 1 million is the submerged issue,
and regardless of that number question, it is still a "holocaust",
just like the minimum 45 million people
that Mao-Tse-Tung killed in China from 1945 - 1975.

Our global human history is one of repeated holocausts.
The Jewish state has successfully permeated the media with the memory of "holocaust".
That perpetual reminder is a good thing actually.

Quote:Aristocracy 2016: Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton
Updated: March 16, 2015  by Winter Trabex 

In the early months of 2015, the two major American parties- Democrat and Republican- are already talking about putting forward candidates for the 2016 election. If past history is any indication, the candidate who comes to office will be markedly different than the candidate whom people thought they voted for. The prestige and power of the office of the president soon goes the head of the person who occupies it, creating tyranny where liberty was promised.

This was the case when Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980. Prior to this, he appeared to be a candidate for personal liberty and fiscal responsibility. His 1964 speech in support of Barry Goldwater displayed the character of a man who was willing to question the war on Vietnam, a man who did not like that the US dollar kept being inflated, a man who stood on principle, one who, despite his history in the film business, nonetheless had a solid grasp on what was good for the country.

The Reagan of 1964 and the Reagan of the 1980’s were two different people. His presidency was marked by a willingness to ignore the rule of law in favor of doing whatever he pleased. In 1982, Reagan chose to support the Contras in Nicarauga against the Sandanistas. The CIA assisted the Contras in an attempt to defeat worldwide communism. (It was not understood at that time that communism is a self-defeating ideology.)

The support continued until 1985, a year in which seven hostages were held prisoner in Iran. In order to secure their release, a point upon which his predecessor, Jimmy Carter, had greatly struggled, Reagan decided to violate an embargo against selling arms to Iran. The deal was weapons for hostages. Iran received the weapons, released three hostages, and captured three more. The scandal broke upon Reagan’s administration: he had created a terrorist market.

The money received from the sale of weapons were funneled to the Contras in Nicarauga, who continued their fight to expel their communist enemies. George H.W. Bush, who served as president from 1989 and 1993, issued pardons to several of the people involved in the affair. One of the leading men involved in the scandal, Oliver North, never spent a day in jail as a result of his actions.

Quote:Neither candidate is talking about Julian Assange, who is still in exile in an embassy in England, unable to move out due to fear of prosecution and arrest from the American government, or any allied nation. Neither candidate is talking about the persecution of whistleblowers such as Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden, who both shone a light on the government’s illegal activities. Neither candidate is talking about the unequal application of justice when bankers working for JP Morgan Chase engage in all manner of criminal activity without being brought up on charges while hardworking people who contribute to society can be arrested and locked up for life just for owning an illegal plant. Neither candidate is talking about the sharp decline in American education standards, caused in large part by a ridiculous program called Common Care. Neither candidate has yet to speak about anything sensible or positive. Instead, they spout out feel-good statements that don’t mean anything.

At its core, the existence of the government itself represents a new problem in American life: that of an aristocracy. In feudal Europe, the aristocracy was a small group of people who ruled counties and nations by virtue of their birth (or military victories). The divine right of kings emerged as a made-up principle to explain why kings were granted the right to rule: God had said they could. No member of the aristocracy, able to impose what tax they thought best, able to confiscate the majority of products produced by the people under his supervision, talked about changing the system. Edward VIII’s abdication of the English throne in the 20th century was an aberration, not the norm. People in power like to hold on to that power.

The situation appears to be no different in today’s dysfunctional, inefficient, bureaucratic government. Instead of an aristocracy arising as a result of lineage, we have an aristocracy which has arisen as a result of concentrated power in the hands of a select few. That new people can enter into government through elections does not change its nature as an exclusive club intended only for a small part of the population. Indeed, the presumption that less than 600 members of Congress can construct wise and effective legislation to govern 300 million people in America appears no different than the ideology of feudal Europe which held that a Duke and his family were wise enough to create rules to govern the affairs of all the people who lived within the land he owned. The few continue to rule the many; the form is merely different.

As a result, it is difficult to view either candidate putting their hat in for the 2016 presidential election and think any good will come of anybody being president. The system itself is broken, perhaps beyond repair. Changing the person in charge will not change the system itself, not even if someone travels back in time to 1964 and snatches Ronald Reagan out of the past in order to provide some common-sense wisdom. Drastic measures are the only things that can save the American government from what appears to be a complete fiscal collapse. Anyone who is not willing to take, or even consider, such measures cannot really be said to be on the side of America. Rather, such candidates as we have are on the side of the new American aristocracy, a group of people who are dedicated to the destruction of everything we hold dear.
