Obama & Co Steps Up Destruction Before November Elections

The BP oil disaster was custom-made for The Obama. It’s a disaster that not only destroys jobs and the lives of the affected humans but, is killing off all wildlife it touches. The effective oil-skimmer systems utilized by the Saudis and others would work to greatly minimize the damage being caused to the US Gulf Coast. But, The Obama continues to drag his heels as States and lives are destroyed. Note: Obama, of course, remains aloof and untouched and continues to refuse all offers of help–only those that truly WILL help–as he smilingly watches and fiddles like Nero while the destruction and death continue. In fact, it is now apparent that destruction and death follow virtually all of Obama’s actions. Interesting, isn’t it?
Pretending that he is constrained by the “Jones Act,” Obama is doing the bare minimum so that destruction will be at an all-time maximum–in order to shove his Cap & Trade bill (which will complete our destruction) down our throats. Note: The Jones Act has been waived by real US presidents, in the past. And while We-the-People are mesmerized by this purely wicked occurrence, he and his Marxist-Maoist Congressional Democrats keep on pushing feverishly to steal even more assets and instill even more power and control from and over us.
The latest Obama and Democrat power grabs include but, are not limited to, assigning the EPA power to regulate carbon emissions (in case the dictator’s Cap & Trade doesn’t clear the US Senate), control over all of the US’ financial institutions (a bill in which control over US citizens’ bank accounts is also included), control over all students applying for educational aid (who will get financial aid who will not and what they will be taught), of course ObamaCare (passed against the will of a vast majority of the American people), “stimulus” bills that have destroyed middle-class jobs and stimulated ONLY the wealthy ruling elite and political class etc. etc. etc.
…Now, however, we have the increasingly insane and unquenchably greedy Marxist Democrat Congress pushing for a bill that will–literally–destroy the US Military. The Democrat Congress is now openly and with no more hidden cunning and deceitfulness telling the American people and the world that it is going to gut virtually ALL of US defenses–by $1Trillon.

If I had my druthers, the never-ending conflict between Israel and Palestine would be but a small news brief in American newspapers. But since we police the world, we must always monitor our global police scanner, where not only Israel’s conflicts, but those of North and South Korea, the nation of Georgia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, and pretty much everywhere else is the United States’ business because we insist on making it so.
What many Americans bizarrely consider national “defense” is actually an aggressive and enduring offense, and yet we are always surprised when other nations get offended.
Last week, Israeli soldiers raided a Turkish flotilla seeking to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza. From Israel’s perspective, the flotilla illegally broke a blockade. When the Israeli soldiers boarded the flotilla, they were attacked by those on board, something the flotilla passengers called self-defense and Israel deemed reason enough to open fire. The end result: nine passengers dead, many soldiers wounded, 700 activists arrested or “kidnapped” (depending on your perspective), an irate Turkey, and an indignant Israel. Many nations have condemned Israel for these actions. They have also condemned the U.S. for not sufficiently condemning Israel. Even though Washington, D.C. is more than 5,000 miles from Tel Aviv, somehow Israel’s controversies always automatically become ours. Why?
This basic question is not simply so-called “isolationist” naiveté, something critics would no doubt charge. It’s quite the opposite: It is human nature to have a blindness toward the big questions because we get so caught up in the little ones. The average idiot couple arguing on Maury gets so caught up in their own he-said-she-said, white-trash narrative they never stop to consider whether there’s any real value to their obviously irreparably damaged relationship.
The same goes for America’s relationship with not only Israel, but much of the globe, where our foreign policy is eternally bogged down by the same sort of well-meaning but ultimately idealistic minutia. According to foreign affairs analyst Andrew J. Bacevich, “The bedrock assumption to which all of official Washington adheres, liberal Democrats no less than conservative Republicans, is that the United States itself constitutes the axis around which history turns. We define the future. Our actions determine its course. The world needs, expects, and yearns for America to lead, thereby ensuring the ultimate triumph of liberty.”
Bacevich gives a fairly accurate description of America’s view of itself and its place on the world stage and also how the U.S. insists only it can play the lead role. Bacevich adds, “For the United States to shrink from its responsibility to lead is, at the very least, to put at risk the precarious stability to which humanity clings and in all likelihood would open the door to unspeakable catastrophe. Alternatives to American leadership simply do not exist.”
When there was a skirmish between Russia and Georgia in 2008, then presidential candidate John McCain exclaimed, “We are all Georgians now.” No, we’re not. I don’t know a single American who thinks that.
The Korean War ended a half century ago, and yet we still have nearly 40,000 troops stationed there, something that takes on a special significance given the recent actions by North Korea. Defenders of the foreign policy status quo maintain that North Korea’s aggression only underscores the need for a U.S. presence there. Really? For how much longer? Another 50 years? Afghanistan is now the longest war in American history. When the shooting finally stops — a highly improbable scenario — how long will American troops remain? Fifty years? How long will they be in Iraq? During the 2008 presidential campaign, McCain famously said troops could be in Iraq for up to “a hundred years.”
Consider this: Israel’s recent attack or interception was on a Turkish ship in international waters. Turkey is part of NATO; Israel isn’t. According to that charter, the U.S. must now go to war with Israel. No one is suggesting any such insanity, but it is worth noting that anyone who suggests NATO is a Cold War relic that should be scrapped is ridiculed or marginalized for making such a suggestion. America simply has to be everywhere and at all times.
Could the 2 leaking Gulf rigs be a result of this: “5.2 Earthquake Dead Center In Gulf Of Mexico”

A mid-sized earthquake shook the Gulf of Mexico today. This is where it is geologically pretty stable. It is also right next to the huge salt domes where much of the oil and gas is being extracted. A retired geologist, Mr. Jack M. Reed, theorized there has to be a hidden tectonic plate segment in this spot and it is not only geologically active but is responsible for triggering the New Madrid Quakes…..

Obama has apparently confirmed what many have suspected since the presidential campaign: that he is a Muslim, not a “committed Christian,” as he professed during the presidential campaign.
