Up to $1 Bill of U.S. aid to Afghanistan goes to the Taliban coffers that kill our troops. Graft is so bad that only about 10% of budgeted aid actually reaches the people in need. A corruption in culture, plus sub-contracting practices of companies doing business there, pay out up to 40% of Taliban aid to "protection rackets," reminiscent of our Al Capone/Gangsters era. In Bob Woodward's book "Obama's Wars" he says, "All the contractors for development projects pay the Taliban for protection & use of the roads." Recently, a Pakistani border crossing (a key military supply route) was closed supposedly (media) because a U.S. drone strike killed 4 Pakistani soldiers. "In reality it was a re-negotiation of the protection rates. The closing & filmed burning of supply trucks allowed drivers, contractors, & everyone in the chain of corruption to up their rates because of the 'new' hazards." One consequence of it being so prevalent & widespread is that peaceful areas have now picked up arms (to cause trouble) because restive areas get "paid-off" to be peaceful. (Human nature, like our welfare & unemployment system. Why work if it's free?). We've given more than $50 Bill in "aid" there, so far. How long can we afford this goofy war? It will be instantly Taliban, al-Qaeda & Iran-owned the moment we leave, where they'll plot & train together, & destroy or divvy-up everything we leave behind.
Hundreds of Sunnis who helped turn the war in Iraq by leaving al-Qaeda to join us (paid to) are now going back to help al-Qaeda. Add this to a president who made his General wait for months before giving him 30,000 more troops (when he said he needed 40,000 urgently). Obama didn't even converse with his General for months, while telling the public Afghanistan was the good & necessary war. And the same day he reluctantly announced the troops he also gave the deadline, when he would withdraw the troops. He said, "I can't lose the whole democratic party," according to good sources. While appeasing his anti-war far-left he essentially encouraged the Taliban & told them to ease off & be patient. Why engage all those (expensive) extra troops when they're all going to leave anyway. What a dip-stick way to run a war! What a Commander-in Chief.
Points to ponder: When drilling in the Gulf is mentioned at all, they talk of deep-water drilling being curtailed. But regular shallow-water drilling permits have been reduced from 84 to just 4! Many more jobs gone, not warranting even mention in the press. The Gov't now gives welfare recipients free cell phones & air-time! It's so ridiculous I'm sure big-screen TVs & cable are next. V-P Biden said, "Every single great idea that has marked the 21st, 20th & 19th century has required Gov't vision & Gov't incentive." Gee, just when you think this buffoon can't say anything dumber, he tops his last idiotic statement. He's had children - so the gene pool goes on. Where's that media that doubted Sarah? No comments?
You know well the arrogance of Pelosi, like when she said, "We have to pass the Bill so you can find out what's in it," while it controls 1/6 of our economy. Or, "Unemployment checks are a great stimulus to the economy!" But her many condescending gaffes have to take a back seat to Harry Reid's recent beauty, "But for me, we'd be in a worldwide depression." That can't be received well with Obama's ego & Messiah complex. Harry beat him in saving the world? And I would think Pelosi's unemployment comp checks sent to almost 15% of Senator Reid's Nevada would be stimulating the heck out of Nevada's economy. It's such a small piece of the whole world. Can you believe that these two feel superior to us - talk down to us? We can replace these two with a bucket of bricks & a bag of hammers.
Here is more on Al Gore's worldwide lies & scam - Global Warming. It is an absolute hoax (duping & using the ignorance of well-meaning environmentalists) to redistribute wealth throughout the world & make Gore, Progressives & Fabian Socialists filthy-rich in the process. Think Millions & Billions because this is crime in the Trillions! All that people know is what they are told by "experts" or scientists, in this case. They are told "news" by media with 90% complicity in this farce. The whole story is based upon "knowledge" or scientific "facts" & measurements. But if all these are skewed or fabricated, dictums from scientists that are dictated to, by those in power over them (grants & paychecks) it becomes a hideous unbelievably expensive bad joke to the rest of us! Scientists are funded by Gov'ts & vulnerable to pressure. They also (like us) cannot speak up & be heard if big media doesn't care, or worse, is supporting those lying & in power. This is the evil perpetuating the myth! Frank Beckmann of WJR Radio exposed much in the Detroit News (October 15). Of course, he will be viciously attacked & discredited for speaking out by the "other" super-majority press in cahoots with the powerful. At some point YOU are going to have to exercise your own brain, search the internet or library (while the info is still there) & find out the truth! Don't just believe me or Glenn Beck. Believe the mountains of facts, & always, "follow the money." Or be one in the herd of sheep & listen to your shepherds. They will protect & provide for you & do all your thinking for you. You can just go back to work or golf, or fishing & hunting - where I would truly like to be! Let them sort everything out that hurts the brain. You can say your opinion won't matter anyway so why bother to fight or do anything but grumble. I get no money! I write because I know, I've looked - extensively. It scares me. But I am alone with what I've learned unless you too learn, get scared and help me (& others) eradicate all this evil our kids (& their kids) will otherwise endure. I can be a shortcut if you trust, read & share with those that will listen. I don't lie. This costs me lots of money, time & effort. I do it for you, & all of "my kids." Read Beckmann's article. I've used up much space ranting. James Hansen of NASA doctored-up temperature data. 75% of the world's reporting stations were eliminated, especially the traditionally coldest. Headlines said the Himalayan glaciers were melting. Even the United Nations later said this was false. The Calif Air Resources Bd admitted (3 weeks ago) that they over estimated diesel pollution by 340% in 2007 - costing $10 Billion in compliance costs. This was not accidental either. But the wheel of gloom & doom has been set in motion, as we chase benign gases like carbon dioxide (exhale). Our "powers" are out to crush coal production (& jobs) & "skyrocket" utility costs. Meanwhile China builds a coal-fired power plant every week of every year & has the worst pollution standards in the world. We inhale their pollutants every day & it will get much worse, as we crack the whip over here like idiots & go broke.
Cincinnati Public Schools let 18 yr old students leave school & board buses with ballots - for democrats only (republicans not an option). Do you think they're taught about the evils of conservatism? The bus drivers have ACORN affiliations (with all their voting fraud baggage) & they buy them ice cream after. The derelicts & homeless picked up to vote probably get smokes & wine. Felons vote - soldiers don"t! The U.S. Dept of Justice (DOJ) has contacted all states, advising them to help felons fully exploit any state laws which would restore their rights to vote. Ask yourself why the DOJ spends taxpayer time & money meddling in states' affairs? In Obama's Illinois they take ballots directly to every prisoner (without being requested) and pick them up for timely delivery. They have no interest in helping our soldiers in foreign lands to vote (who bleed & die for that right). Democrats ignore them & stall, causing ballots returned too late to be counted. Why? Soldiers vote largely republican & the dregs of society vote over 90% democratic! Whether you're valiant, vagrant or criminal is irrelevant to Obama, Pelosi & Reid. Only if you can get me in, or keep me in power are you of value & worth my time. Democrats will bed with the Devil to get his vote, or bus & bribe bums to vote several times - "ends justify the means." I was a democrat most all of my life. So were my parents & grandparents - and my wife's. This is not the democrat party! This is some frightening mutation. Progressives, Union thugs & radical extremists have taken it over. We are beyond even a "nanny state" - caring for undeserving "lazies" from cradle to grave. We are fast becoming a "police state!" When your gov't does the "providing" they also make "the rules" on what you may or may not have, or do. If you're even half paying attention you can see most everything is already in place. If you think everything is fine, go back to sleep. You are of absolutely no help to anyone that cares anyway. As they say, "There are those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those that wonder, what happened?"
I think it is a shameful embarrassment that someone as vile as Alexi Giannoulias can make an election for US Senator (Illinois) even close. He was a banker for mobsters, lending them millions for things as crude & crooked as "street loans." As chief loan officer he (in so doing) bankrupted his parents' bank & cost taxpayers $390 Mil. Now out of work, his sleazy criminal bank dealing experience (and Obama's support) got him the Illinois State Treasurer's job! Alexi then pledged support & $100,000 to Obama for US Senate. The very seat Obama vacated (for president) & now tries to put Alexi in. They played basketball together. Otherwise neither had a lick of experience, qualifications, integrity or scruples - just two smooth talkers with a powerful, dirty (ballot box stuffing) political machine paving the way for "their kind" to gain power - then prepare a place at the table for them too. A table laden with endless piles of taxpayer money! Mobsters are not only out of hiding, but becoming fashionable it seems - media doesn't care. This paragraph is my opinion based on all I've dug out of the garbage & come to know. I still am entitled to that, so far. I say shame on all media for ignoring the criminal element pervading our system. Jerry Brown, going for Gov of Calif & a career politician is another crook with a vile past, going to the highest bidder. He's in bed with "Code Pink," (big supporters of numerous terrorism groups) plus any other slugs that will finance him. He wouldn't prosecute a cut & dried easy case against despicable ACORN, probably because he wanted them "grateful" & helpful in his own election advancements. Calif deserves his kind if they vote him in, but he should be fired as Atty Gen, not hired as Governor!
Obama just can't resist getting down in the mud to smear (if only innuendo). I think he relishes that Chicago-style dirty politics & destroying the opposition. There are those like that - he & George Soros are two - "Chicago & Nazi tough" (as Soros has acclaimed). They love it. Defeating your opponent is necessary to win, but to cause, then revel in their pain & suffering is sadistic. Not many can do that - but some delight in it. It's inhuman. Humans empathize. We inexplicably choke-up when watching a tender or painful movie scene - even though we know it's not real. Soros gets off on it, gets that "thrill up his leg," especially if he caused it, & it is real. I think Obama does too, & why he invites Soros to the WH. In no way is that a leader, or anyone you want at the top, in charge. Think about it.
Obama uses his press just before people vote as he tells the young (at colleges) that he "might be" rethinking his position on same-sex marriage, to get gay-rights voters. He says the US Chamber of Commerce (COC) is using foreign funds for ads to help & promote private business people. That is their job, which would also create private USA private jobs - not Obama's goal. But he makes it all seem secretive, like it's dirty (be suspicious) don't vote republican. The USCOC has a total budget of $200 Mil. Among 300,000 US member affiliations it also has 115 foreign members in 108 countries, that pay less than $100,000 total in dues. The COC insists that small amount is fastidiously segregated from any possible political use. If it was used it wouldn't amount to a nickel of a one hundred dollar bill. But you get the shock & smear press effect just before voting. Some will now think the COC is dirty & therefore the republicans - vote democrat. Plant that seed & they won't question you getting hundreds of millions from Unions & their foreign subsidiaries. The Dems have $856 Mil to spend on midterm elections to the Repub's $677 Mil - so who's really buying these seats?
In just the Tucson AZ sector, one out of every five illegals coming into America are (OTM) Other Than Mexican. Last year in just this sector, 2,960 (apprehended) were from "special interest & terrorist sponsoring" countries. The Border Patrol caught 556,000 illegals in 2009 (1500/day) & estimate that only one in five gets caught. Extrapolating, that means about 556,000 illegals from oversea terrorist countries got into the U.S. in 2009 alone. How many of these growing numbers are sent over to Mexico to cross over? Over a half million every year roaming around at will - a great many up to no good. This is a certain recipe for disaster, as Obama has half of America thinking we want to hassle pickers of fruit. Wake up! Those sleeper Cells wont be sleeping much longer. Suicide bombers from over there will be strapping on explosives over here. They don't have to recruit & train ours. They can just walk across the damned border & buy what they need! This nation will panic & become unrecognizable because we are vulnerable everywhere. We have never been regularly, randomly attacked. They will bomb our school children for instance, for maximum shock. Rage will be hard to contain. It will get ugly!
Evil billionaire, George Soros & crooked cheating ACORN got Al Franken elected as Minn US Senator on a recount of very dubious "found" absentee votes in car trunks - & all voted alike? Absentee voting fraud is huge right now all over the country, you're just not hearing about it. But Franken now calls for an "investigation" of the US Chamber (COC) after Obama's accusations. Moveon.org & Media Matters (Soros bought & paid for pawns) are milking an obliging press just prior to voting. And Obama says republicans, "can come for the for the ride, but gotta sit in the back" of the bus. Knowing everything he says (except gaffes away from the 'prompter) is measured carefully the inference is republicans are rich whites, while he simultaneously prods blacks to get angry & get to the polls. He told Hispanics in the Latino press to get out & vote, "Punish your enemies & reward your friends," as he spurs on racial unrest. What other president has ever talked like that? Enemy voters? Obama campaigned as the "Unifier." He said it over & over, we are not black, brown & white Americans - we are all Americans, as he wooed, mesmerized & cajoled the white voters - saying all the right things to get elected. More B.S.! Yes, he was quite the "Unifier" until he got in. I think he will set racial relations back a generation or two before he's done. I think it's calculated to agitate, right from his teachings by Cloward & Piven, & Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals. When I started writing I tried to see it his way. I disagreed but never did I see evil. Now I've seen too much. I find it unbelievable that about 1/3 of the country says they aren't sure which way they'll vote. I say, "What planet are you living on?" If you are living off & dependant upon Gov't & big Unions I can't blame you for voting for your bread & butter. It's lousy for America, but I understand - but you certainly know how you'll vote. So that still leaves 1/3 brain-dead in my book. This man & everyone that supports him is poison for America & an abomination - threatening our Freedom & Rights, Constitution & Founders' principles!
