Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Document: Major resources needed for Obama Africa trip

The first family is making back-to-back stops from June 26 to July 3 in three countries where U.S. officials are providing nearly all the resources,

rather than

depending heavily on local police forces, military authorities or hospitals for assistance.

Africa. Hope they all get stranded there. That's where they need to go anyway and stay. America is tired of these cockroaches.

Now we know why Obama closed down the White House tours. He was saving the money for this $100,000,000 boondoggle to Africa.

I love this trip, it sends the right message. You see WP, Bush didn't go to Africa after totaling up 7 trillion in new debt, with 49 million on food stamps with 12 million on disability, with workforce participation rates at 33 year lows, under the worse post recession recovery in history while claiming sequester was going to kill old people.. Joke is you koolaid drinking fools, 2014 is just around the corner..

We must give our lives and fortune for him!!!

Meanwhile, do you suppose Obongo is giving even $20 a month to support his brother who lives in a one-room hut in Kenya on income of $240 per year? Don't bet on it.

Postings from Sanford: The Trial of Trayvon's Killer, The People's Demand for Justice
Storm Brewing in Sanford
On the day that we arrived, we talked with two men outside a barbershop here in Sanford. One of the men described the situation here—the police harassment and the years of dehumanization faced by Black people.
He talked about the police stopping and
---harassing his white boss for driving him home from work.---
"I'm Black and he's white. <<--<<<
He's in a Black neighborhood, so they assume he's buying drugs, but even when they know he's not, they f***ed with him."
These are the types of stories you hear around here. There is so much still simmering under the surface.

George Zimmerman trial wrap-up, Day 1
Seminole County is a suburb of the Orlando metropolitan area and many in the community are very disturbed by the previous presence of protesters ranging from Black Panthers to White Supremacy groups. Different groups from all forms of agendas have flooded Sanford, Florida (where the shooting happened) and areas all over central Florida.
Famous figures such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are a few celebrities among many who have traveled to this area to voice their opinion. The media circus has caused just about everyone in the area to worry about what is going on and begs the question, "Can George Zimmerman get a fair trial from an impartial jury in Seminole County?" If the defense feels that they cannot find an impartial jury in this area, they may ask the judge for a change of venue to somewhere they can.

So, when the CIA went to Congress & said that the Benghazi statements made directly following the attacks were accurate based on CIA information at that time, you f*cking right whiners STFU about it?.
"Then-CIA Director David Petraeus objected to the final talking points the Obama administration used after the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, because he wanted to see more details revealed to the public, according to emails released Wednesday by the White House.

Under pressure in the investigation that continues eight months after the attacks, the White House Wednesday released 99 pages of emails and a single page of handwritten notes made by Petraeus' deputy, Mike Morell, after a meeting at the White House on Saturday, Sept. 15. On that page, Morell scratched out from the CIA's early drafts of talking points mentions of al-Qaida, the experience of fighters in Libya, Islamic extremists and a warning to the Cairo embassy on the eve of the attacks of calls for a demonstration and break-in by jihadists.

Petraeus apparently was displeased by the removal of so much of the material his analysts had proposed for release. The talking points were sent to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to prepare her for an appearance on news shows on Sunday, Sept. 16, and also to members of the House Intelligence Committee.

what treaty allowed the U.S. to provide arms to the French for their involvement in a war with one of their colonies??
what treaty allowed the U.S. to provide aid to England for the Falklands war?
what treaty allowed the U.S. to provide aid to Saddam in his war with Iran?
what treaty allowed the U.S. to provide aid to the Muhajjdeen Afghanistan?
what treaty allowed the U.S. to provide aid to the Contras?? Oh wait a minute, Congress actually enacted legislation to prevent the U.S. from providing aid to those terrorists known as the Contras. That's why the Reagan administration sold weapons and munitions to the terrorist state of Iran and the Revolutionary Guard.
I don't know where you are getting your talking points from but they are not factually correct. Cite a link

Was Iran/Contra legal? The fact that you do not even know the history of this event leaves all your other claims highly questionable.

That's the problem. This administration can't be trusted. We'd like to think these agencies are autonomous from political influences and the "political climate", but I'm more concerned about PRISM than NSA.

You got some magic statistic saying those teachers are on the "left"?

Didn't think so. Carol used to be a teacher, she's certainly not a lefty. Besides, I have yet to see a school district protect a predator teacher going so far as unleashing them on a whole new crop of victims.

So?

Does it state it must explicitly state "We declare war" in the resolution? I will help you out, no it doesn't.

The resolution must include the authorizing of military force.
