Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

More naivety from Davey. The press didn't question anything about Obama. They wanted a mythical character as the hoopla of Kennedy was fading in the reality of time. So will the Obama hysteria and you can freak, call names and stomp your feet but as time passes reality will rein.
So you don't think every nook & cranny wasn't searched for the "big story"?

So you are arguing about something that isn't even the topic of the other post -typical of Dave. You are either very confused or you think your smoke screens are highly effective. The later is not working for you.

No, he looks like he is hiding something as there is no reason to not release these. Sometimes Obama is just not that smart and you need to face reality.

It was a Clinton policy that based the ability of a bank to branch on the number of these loans they made. For days you have tried to be the expert on something that everyone knows that you have no clue about. It has become a point and laugh at you situation. Yet naive Davey has no idea.
Where is it written that Clinton forced banks to loan money to people who could not pay it back?

No where.

No one's bashing capitalism moron. Capitalism is what grew this country by people starting businesses and hiring people selling goods and services and contributing to the local economies. What's at issue is corporatism that ships job to countries that pay low wages and have no concerns for worker health and safety and stash their profits in offshore banks to avoid paying taxes for the services they receive in this country.
When Sam Walton started his business he was a capitalist. He kept his prices low by maintaining low profit margins and he sold American goods whenever possible. His heirs however went to the corporatist route making their profits by selling cheap foreign goods produced by virtual slave labor paying their employees crap and driving small businesses out.
You're an idiot!
It's the cost of living that has risen higher than minimum wages. It's been that way for a long time. It's actually not fair to those on the low end of the totem pole who just want to make an honest living.

The solution of raising minimum wages across the board could also create a problem as companies would have to raise the prices of their products to cover the higher salaries and still make a profit and the expense of overhead, etc.

But the discrepency between the cost of living and minimum wage is an issue that needs to be addressed. Most companies could raise prices by a small amount and still make a profit even if it meant a little less profit.

I'm not an economist but I do know throwing the baby out with the bathwater or killing flies with a cannon ball isn't the solution either. Getting rid of job makers by driving them away or strangling them with overregulations and taxes doesn't solve anything. It only creates higher unemployment.

But any employment is better than no employment and, when the market thrives, opportunities also become greater. Stifling the free market and free enterprise is just shooting ourselves in the foot.

There will never be a perfect system. You have to decide which one works the best and accept its warts and imperfections and try to remove as many as possible without disfiguring it beyond recognition.

You have been given a stack of information and you have childishly responded with the lame comment- "liar". We cannot take you seriously when you insist on spitting on your own bus and really think that is a defense. Stop acting like you are defenseless whose only choice is to act like a kiddy bully. As I stated you have reached the point and laugh situation.

Obama is a public figure and he is incapable of keeping them sealed forever. They are sealed currently under EO. There is no logical reason why any president would seal personal records. What is he hiding?

OBAMA The U.S. Is Engaged In a Religious War … On the Side of “Islamic Jihadis”
Backing One Side Against the Other In Someone Else’s Religious War Is Dangerous

Preface: Americans would be disgusted if the might of the U.S. military and the riches of the U.S. treasury were used to support one Christian faith (say Methodists) in a shooting war against another faith (say Luterhans). We would be even more offended if the U.S. backed one Hindu sect in a war against a competing Hindu sect, or one school of Judaism against a competing school of Judaism in an armed battle. But that’s exactly what we’ve been doing … backing one Islamic faith against another.

We are not siding with one sect or the other. Nor are we claiming that all people of any particular sect are bad or violent people.

What we’re saying is that the whole problem is that the U.S. is taking sides … in someone else’s religious war.

Many Americans assume either:

(1) The U.S. doesn’t take sides in religious wars

Or

(2) We are fighting a crusade against Muslims

Neither assumption is correct. In fact, we are fighting a religious war on the same side as the Muslim jihadis. Unfortunately – as shown below – this is neither wild-eyed conspiracy theory or breathless hyperbole.



Specifically, the U.S. has directly inserted itself into a sectarian war between the two main Islamic sects, backing the “Sunnis” and attacking the “Shiites”(also called “Shia”). See this, this and this.

For example, American political leaders have been very close to Saudi (i.e. Sunni) leaders for decades:

Obama has been similarly close to the Saudis.)

Saudi Arabia is the center of the Sunni branch of Islam. It is also the center of the most radical sect of Islam … the “Wahhabis”(also called “Salafis”), the most radical and terrorist-minded Sunni sect. But the U.S. has long supported the Madrassa schools within Saudi Arabia which teach radical Wahabi beliefs.

The U.S. has also supported the most radical and dangerous Sunni elements around the world.

For example, the U.S. National Security Adviser admitted that the U.S. created, organized and armed the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets. The Mujahadeen are predominately Sunni.

The Mujahadeen eventually morphed into Al Qaeda, which is a Sunni organization.

During various times and places, the U.S. has also backed the Muslim Brotherhood … another Sunni group.

We supported Al Qaeda Sunni terrorists in Libya and Mali,

We’ve long supported Sunni terrorists in Chechnya.

We support MEK terrorists – who are Sunnis who target Shias – in Iran.

We support the brutal Sunni government in Bahrain as it crushes its majority Shia population whenever it pushes for democratic reform.

We supported Al Qaeda Sunnis in Bosnia.

The “rebels” in Syria who we’ve been supporting are Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood.

As the New York Times reports this week:

In Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with Al Qaeda control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law. Elsewhere, they have seized government oil fields, put employees back to work and now profit from the crude they produce.

Across Syria, rebel-held areas are dotted with Islamic courts staffed by lawyers and clerics, and by fighting brigades led by extremists. Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.

Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.

Why should Americans care if our government is backing the Sunnis over the Shiites?

Because we are supporting the side which carries out most of the terrorism. Indeed, Sunni Muslims commit most of the terrorist acts worldwide.

ALL HAPPENING UNDER OBAMAS PRESIDENCY Civil Rights and Human Liberties under Threat
Eighteen college and universities worldwide have researched and validated 233 independent news stories for the annual Project Censored review cycle. These independent news stories have seen little if any coverage by the corporate media. The Project Censored network is currently voting on the top 25 most important stories for inclusion in Censored 2014: Fearless Speech in Fateful Times, the latest edition of our annual yearbook, scheduled for release by Seven Stories Press in October 2013.

Please help us maintain this annual process by becoming a subscriber ($5-$10 a month) or by making a one time tax deductible donation of support here. We thank you for your support and please review the latest Validated Independent News stories on Civil Liberties and Human Rights being Under Threat below.

Sincerely,

Mickey Huff—Director of Project Censored

Andy Roth—Associate Director of Project Censored

Peter Phillips—President, Media Freedom Foundation/Project Censored

Civil Liberties and Human Rights Under Threat
“Culture of Cruelty” Along US-Mexico Border Migrants crossing the Mexico-US border face not only the dangers of dehydration, starvation, exhaustion, but also abuse at the hands of the US Border Patrol. In “A Culture of Cruelty,” the organization No More Deaths reveals human rights violations by the US Border Patrol including limiting or denying migrants water and food, verbal and physical abuse, and failing to provide necessary medical attention. Erika Sánchez reports,“dehumanization of immigrants is actually part of the Border Patrol’s institutional culture.”

Nina Rosenwald:“Sugar Mama of Anti-Muslim Hate” Since 2000, Nina Rosenwald and her sister Elizabeth Varet have donated more than $2.8 million to anti-Muslim groups and organizations, making her, in Max Blumenthal’s words,“the sugar mama of anti-Muslim hate.” In addition to donating millions of dollars to these organizations, Rosenwald serves on the board of the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), America’s largest pro-Israel lobby, and she currently holds additional positions in other pro-Israel organizations.

Pennsylvania Law Gags Doctors to Protect Oil Company Profits In communities affected by fracking, people understand the environment and their health is at risk. In Pennsylvania, a new state law requires drilling companies to tell doctors what chemicals they are pumping into the ground in order to extract natural gas. Doctors need to identify the chemicals so they can diagnose and treat patients who have been exposed. However, because the companies deem the chemical ingredients they are injecting into people’s backyards “proprietary secrets,” the law imposes a gag on doctors, forbidding them from telling anyone, including their own patients or other health professionals, what chemicals are causing the sickness.

Double Standards Plague New York Police Civilian Complaint Review Board New York City’s Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) has been operating under double standards. Designed to operate as a fact-finding organization, the CCRB reviews complaints and is supposed to refer “substantiated” cases to the NYPD’s Advocate’s Office, which internally investigates officers accused of wrongdoing. Officially any case that involved a “preponderance of evidence” ought to be forwarded to the Advocate’s Office for investigation, but in practice CCRB reviewers used a higher standard, closer to the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard used in criminal courts. As a result, fewer officers face official investigation for misconduct charges.

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera: GOP crippled by right wing radio hosts

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera on Monday criticized the power that conservative radio show hosts wielded over the Republican Party.

On HuffPost Live, Rivera described those who listened to conservative hosts like Rush Limbaugh as “absolutists” who were fond of the 1950s. He said Republicans could never hope to regain the White House if they pandered to such demographics, who were stubbornly opposed to immigration reform and same-sex marriage.

“I think talk radio has driven the platform drafters in the GOP for at least the last several election cycles,” Rivera continued.

Try again Jane. Are your school records sealed or not?
The media rush was not the media's fault. When McCain picked a virtual unknown, sh*t happens.
Palin's story was interesting because it showed what a clawing, self absorbed b*tch she is. Trouncing friends *& colleagues to climb a little higher.
The story became how could the Republicans run such a person as VP.
Hahahahaha ! What a tool!
