Snipery in Bosnia

Snipery in Bosnia

0 comments

Go to the American Debate if you want well-considered words on Hillary Clinton's "misspeaking" about having been under fire when she landed in Bosnia in 1996.

But stay here if you want to see newly discovered video of just how battle-tested she really was back in the day.

So Hillary did lie about the danger involved in her Bosnia trip. She wanted to impress. Fair enough. And I have to hear from Karl Rove about Obama's lies. 1) Obama said his parents met at the Selma march, Reality: he was born 4 years before that. 2) Obama said he was a constitutional law professor Reality: Obama was an instructor and never was a professor. 3) Obama said he spoke fluent Indonesian as a child Reality: His teachers there say no. 4) Obama said he was involved in community asbestos and housing project for the poor Reality: Didn't happen and this was the basis for Obama and Michelle's claims that he was a community activist in Chicago. Which both he and Michelle Obama have been saying this year. 5) Obama said in his book that he received his racial awakening at age nine reading a Life/Ebony Magazine story about a black man who was scarred trying to dye his skin white Reality: Didn't happen. Both Life and Ebony say there was no such article. So the Lie Meter is 5 Obama 1 Hillary. AND, Hillary admitted the untruth; Let Obama do the same. We could continue in this way, Tit for Tat or we can ask who is best qualified. Hillary Clinton is courageous (regardless of her exaggeration), knowledgeable, tough and she is widely acknowledged as a policy expert. I am for her as I see she has the chops to do the job. Obama is a terrific speaker and his policy chops are thin as is his good friend Duval Patrick's (read the New York Times article). He is dazzling and not much else. The books he brags about writing have falsehoods (as listed above). What can a voter do? Either he is qualified or he is not. And all the diatribes and trash talking will not help us decide. What is worse, if he should be the nominee, the right wing will cream him in November. REALITY CHECK!!!!

We have to be careful with what Obama says!
esterday I mentioned that following Hillary Clinton's interview with Greta Van Susteren, Karl Rove came on and gave a laundry list of exaggerations by Barack Obama. He spoke really fast so I couldn't grab them all, but the transcript is now on Lexis. Here's his list:

"We have had Senator Obama said his parents met and joined -- got together at the Selma March, and that led to them being together and him being born. Well, he was born four years before the Selma March.

He claimed to be a constitutional law professor, and turned out not to be.

Claimed to speak fluent Indonesia as a child. His schoolteacher said that was not the case.

He claimed to be involved in an asbestos campaign in public housing in his book, and it turned out not to be the case.

Why I will not vote for Obama:

1.  Are we likely to get GOOD CHANGES in Energy policy from an Obama administration?

Answer:  NO.  Why Not?

Because: Obama voted FOR the Cheney Energy Bill (H.R. 6) in 2005.

 (which enabled the nuke industry to begin planning to build 29 new nukes (one of them in Pennsylvania)
 - after 30 years of no new nukes being built because the banks wouldn't loan the money - too risky.

The Cheney Energy Bill solved that problem for the nuke industry by guaranteeing taxpayer payback of any of the nuke loans that default ... (with the risk of default rated by the Congressional Budget Office at 50% or greater). 

Because: Obama has been IN with the nuke industry for decades.  Excelon Corp. of Illinois is the largest nuke operator on earth - ( they own the nuclear power plants in Illinois and they own Con-Ed in NY state).  Excelon has been one of Obama's largest contributors since his earliest days in politics.

Because: Obama would not even be IN the race for president IF he was not HEAVILY SUPPORTED by the nuke industry.  GE (2nd largest corporation on the planet) & Westinghouse are planning to build many of those nukes.

GE owns NBC & MSNBC.  Westinghouse owns CBS.  That's the reason "the Mainstreams Media" are PUSHING Obama for President/ slamming & smearing the Clintons.  ABSENT BILLIONS of dollars worth of FREE Pro-Obama Advertising/Propaganda provided by NBC/MSNBC/and CBS Obama would not have gotten past the New Hampshire primary.

2.  Are we likely to get GOOD CHANGES in the ECONOMY?

Answer:  It doesn't look good.  Obama's financial advisors include the followng people:

JEFFREY LIEBMAN:  SOCIAL SECURITY:  In a 2005 policy paper Liebman advocated a mix of benefit cuts, tax increases and mandatory personal accounts.
DAVID CUTLER:  HEALTHCARE:  He Says High Health Care Costs are Good.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE:  RICH GETTING RICHER, EVERYBODY ELSE GETTING POORER: 
The stagnation of middle- and working-class incomes, and the anxiety this has generated, is, he says, a most pressing problem, but policymakers must be mindful about trying to address its root cause, which Goolsbee says is "radically increased returns to skill." ( i.e.  College degrees are paying off more & more --- which is true, BUT Certainly DOES NOT account for the rise of the super rich, nor the increasing poverty of everyone else.)

(Evidently, Goolsbee's not old enough to remember the beginning of that Income Inequality, or to recognize THE CAUSE.  It began in 1981.  THE CAUSE of it was and is that Reagan cut the top tax rate DOWN from 70% to the low 30% s, AND Corporations all over America BEGAN instituting "THE TWO-TIER WAGE STRUCTURE'.  i.e. Pay the people at the top a LOT MORE, Pay Everybody Else a LOT LESS.  (If you searched old newspaper archives from the early 1980s you would find newspaper articles about the sudden appearance of the Two-Tier Wage Structure.)

3.  Are we likely to get GOOD CHANGES in Foreign Policy?

Answer:  Not Likely.

Among a dozen or so Foreign Policy Advisors the most "senior" advisor is:

Zbigniew Brzezinski.  Former National Security Advisor to President Carter.  Using the CIA & Billions of dollars, he ginned up a War in Afghanistan .... seeking as he said to "give the Soviet Union its own Vietnam.".

He Created the Taliban and Al Queda/ JIHAD/madrassa brainwashing schools for that purpose.  Supported the dictator Pol Pol who massacred millions of Cambodian villagers.  When asked, if in hindsight, considering that Al Queda eventually attacked America, and Pol Pot slaughtered millions - IF he would change anything he had done .... Zbig answered NO, he was satisfied with the results.

Electing Obama President is not likely to reassure the rest of the world that the U.S. is going to cease having an insane foreign policy; is likely to put Russia on an even more nervous hair trigger than they are now.

The major problem with Obama and his advisiors is they are ACADEMICS who have lived the life of privilege out of touch with the real world --- Better educated and smarter than Bush's gang --- they are still likely to do just as badly at running the government --- for the same reason:  OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY ... i.e. insane....people doing insane things.

4.  Are we likely to get GOOD CHANGES in:  appointing competent qualified people to run the government; instead of cronyism, or good changes that get rid of fraud, payoffs, and corruption in government?
Answer:  No.
  
Because:  Obama's friend Rezko was part and parcel of the mafia connected, corrupt, Daley Chicago political machine.  Rezko was Obama's chief fundraiser from the beginning of his career in Illinois politics  to his election to the U.S. Senate.  There is very little coverage of the Obama Rezko/Daley corruption connections on National TV, but the local Chicago papers have a lot of info going back several years ... & it don't look good for Obama.  He got IN with the Daley machine when his wife worked as an assistant to one of Daley's higher ups; Obama looks to be part and parcel of the same corrupt Daley political machine as his friend Rezko.

 Some of the above is speculation based on facts..  What I KNOW Obama HAS ALREADY DONE makes all the above doubts and questions irrelevant in answering the question:  

Is Obama qualified to be, or likely to be,  a GOOD President?

Answer: NO.  He has already done something so unconscionable, so dirty, so dangerous that no sane American would even consider voting for him.  HE played the race card. 

Those accusations of racism against the Clintons did not come from any public "Outcry" on the part of black people all over the country - those accusations of racism came solely and directly from the Obama Campaign.  Obama was caught red-handed pushing those accusations to the press - in a 4-page Internal Campaign Memo - Listing those accusations & directing them to the press.  The Huffington Post obtained a copy & published it on the web.

Shortly thereafter, during one of the debates, Tim Russert (MSNBC) ..... while rustling a copy of the 4-page Memo in his hand .... asked Obama .... your campaign has been pushing accusations of racism to the press (rustles pages) .... in a 4-page campaign memo .... what do you have to say about that?

Obama mumbled a few sentences ....( people in both campaigns get carried away and say things they shouldn't have said ... blah..blah) ....  and  .... then MSNBC/ the mainstream media .... NEVER MENTIONED IT AGAIN!.  

Instead, MSNBC/NBC/CBS and all the rest of the mainstream CORPORATE-CONTROLLED media just went right on endlessly PUSHING the SAME totally ridiculous false accusations of "racism".

Obama made those accusations of racism  .... in order to win the South Carolina primary.  Obama has continued to make accusations of racism ... every time .... he falls behind in the polls.  The question is:  What USE of RACISM / inter-racial strife would he NOT stoop to IF elected President.

Which brings us to the Question:  Is it likely Obama will TRANSCEND race... .Get Past the Politics of DIVISION;.. .....Unite this Country?

Given the DIVISION he has already created by making false accusations of racism - the answer is a resounding:
HELL NO!  

Obama is the CORPORATE-CONTROLLED candidate being PUSHED by the CORPORATE-CONTROLLED Media.

Same Media that sold TOO MANY AMERICANS on Bush/Cheney.  Same Media that SOLD U.S. a War.

Why I will Vote for Hillary Clinton:

1.  ENERGY:  We know we need to change to Cheaper, Cleaner, DE-Centralized/NOT Monopoly controlled Energy.

    Clinton states that her Energy Plan does not include nuclear; nuclear can be considered ... in the future .... IF and when they find a way to MAKE IT CHEAPER and Find a way to safely dispose of nuclear waste. 

(Obama and McCain have said they are Pro-Nuclear).    

2.  ECONOMY:  The Clintons are the only candidates with ANY experience in TURNING an ECONOMY around before it slides into economic meltdown .... engendering unprecedented economic growth .... during the 1990's ...following Reagan/Bush 1's wholesale looting of the majority of the public and the public treasury. 


3.  FOREIGN POLICY:  Returning the Clintons to the White House will Return the Rest of The World's Governments and Peoples to the SAME unprecedented High Level of Goodwill, RESPECT, and TRUST for the U.S. Government as they had during Bill Clinton's administration.

4.  COMPETENT QUALIFED PEOPLE RUNNING THE GOVERNMENT:

Same as during Bill Clinton's administration.

5.  REAL PUBLIC SERVANTS instead of cronyism, payoffs, corruption in Government.

The Clinton administration was investigated far more than any other entity in the history of the world.

Investigated by people who hated them AND desperately wanted to find a way to find them guilty of payoffs, corruption, SOMETHING, anything .....  Following 8 years and hundreds of millions of dollars worth of investigations the Clintons were not found guilty of ANY KIND of political corruption --- (which practically makes them eligible for political Sainthood).

As best I can see the Clintons are the candidates being backed by the GOOD wealthy people.  Bill Clinton has spent the past eight years .... promoting and expanding CHARITY - particularly among the rich.  

When Clinton was president what kind of  legislation did he manage to get passed- despite a Republican Controlled Congress?

Two Examples:  The Family and Medical Leave Act .... for the benefit of ordinary American working class people, and the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. (The two most essential elements for life on this planet.)

Put the Clintons back in the White House WITH a Democrat-Controlled Congress AND the REAL CHANGES We the People Need CAN get made.

WELL .... since Obama wants us to abide by the golden rule .... do unto others as you would have them do unto you ... it's time for ALL of US to 
Flip HIM OFF:
Obama ("Middle-Finger-Gate")....& WHY the MEDIA isn't covering it:
Originally posted on: The Swamp website:

Just watch the videos. He did it twice, in the same day, at two separate events. He made the gesture at the same point in his speeches - the crowd understood what he meant. Actions speak louder than words. This man is not fit to be a US Senator.

If Obama gets the nod it will be due solely to Black hypocrisy and White guilt. Great way to get a president! You think the last 8 years were a mess...just wait!

MSNBC & NBC are owned by GE. CBS is owned by Westinghouse. They have lots of AD $$$money to spread around to all forms of media.
GE & Westinghouse are planning to Reap $BILLIONS Risk-Free from building 29 new nuclear power plants - thanks to the Cheney Energy Bill (Cheney's NEXT Big Energy Monopoly RIPOFF) .... just waiting in the wings for either --- Obama, or McCain to win the presidency --- they're both pro-nuclear.
Clinton voted AGAINST the Cheney Energy Bill & says her Energy Plan does not include nuclear.
That is WHY the MEDIA puts out Pro-Obama PROPAGANDA - Anti-Clinton Slime & Smear ... all day everyday.

(Who Knew --- Obama's "New Kind of Politics" = DIRTIER than the Republicans)
