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

Evil U.S. Democrats want war. Every time there is a Democrat president, VietNam Wars are OK. When Bush was president, the evil Democrats change into pacifists for political reasons.

Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, yet this 57 state idiot has causes more death.

Wrong speech, you lying sack-o-shit. Go to the one later in the day where Obama is in the Rose Garden with Biden. Starting at 1:45 in the video.
Obama still did not say he would proceed with military action if Congress votes "No". He may, he may not. Wait and see.

..."Iím also mindful that Iím the President of the worldís oldest constitutional democracy. Iíve long believed that our power is rooted not just in our military might, but in our example as a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. And thatís why Iíve made a second decision: I will seek authorization for the use of force from the American peopleís representatives in Congress."

"...all of us should be accountable as we move forward, and that can only be accomplished with a vote."

Signs the Global Elite Are Losing Control

09/07/2013

As the Powers That (are allowed to) Be head toward a devastating defeat in their war plans for Syria, signs are emerging that their rule over humanity is rapidly diminishing.

Over the last decade the global 'elite' have been on a mad dash to consolidate power over the world. It's always been their plan like some evil villain in a comic book, but after 9/11 the plan went into overdrive and then turbo charged during the financial crisis of 2008.

Yet it's doomed to fail because humans are meant to be guided by their own free will, not controlled like livestock. The more the 'elite' try to control humanity, the more entropy occurs. Entropy, for those who don't know, is the lack of order or predictability; a gradual decline into disorder.

Although the 'elite' still enjoy a huge wealth advantage over the masses, they are now resigned to behaving like tyrants to maintain control. This, in turn, exposes their dark side which has been cleverly concealed for ages. Not anymore.

People are waking up in droves, at least as fast as the 'elite' can build their full-spectrum prison matrix. Let them try. To paraphrase Victor Hugo, "No army can stop an idea whose time has come."

Here are ten signs that the 'elite' are losing control over The People:

1. Official lies no longer effective: The lies they tell simply don't work anymore. There was a time when official lies, especially about war and peace, were believed. Because, after all, how evil would it be to lie about such things? Generally people want to believe they are being told the truth when life and death is at stake. The boy who cried wolf has cried one too many times. Even if they told the truth at this point, very few would believe them.

2. No confidence in politics: U.S. politicians have a paltry approval rating. The trust in government is at all-time lows here and around the world. Mainstream polls show only 10% of the public has confidence in Congress. In other words, 90% don't believe in them to be competent to govern.

Watch this Town Hall exchange below where a man threatens US Senator John McCain with arrest for Treason to his face. This would have never happened just a year or two ago:



3. No confidence in media: The most recent polls show that 77% of Our population no longer trusts corporate TV news. Is it any wonder why the establishment media failed to sell the lies about the alleged Syria chemical event? With all their monopoly might over the airwaves, they can no longer claim that black is white simply because officialdom says so.

4. Bankers rejected: Hungary recently became the first country to follow Iceland's lead by shedding international bankers (IMF) and is considering pursuing prosecution of past prime ministers who enslaved the people with debt.

Look for this trend to continue even if nations decide to default to break free.

Apparently unlike you I have come across some who are white stuck at the bottom. Also unlike you I do not avoid them. On a weekly basis I meet with whites and blacks and Asians while distributing food at a food bank as a volunteer.

5. Vatican desperately trying to clean up its appearance: Under the previous Pope, Pope Benedict, scandals erupted from the Vatican ranging from covering up pedophile priests to money laundering and fraud. Benedict, in an unprecedented move, abruptly retired to make way for a seemingly much more likable Pope Francis. Pope Francis by all measures is working furiously to reclaim this organization's peaceful and humble appearance. Whether this is genuine or a PR move, it's telling that this church was forced into such a drastic turnaround to save itself from losing all credibility.

6. Mutiny among soldiers: Finally. Soldiers, who are outlawed from making political statements, are steadily speaking out against US military adventurism. As Einstein famously said "The pioneers of a warless world are the young men (and women) who refuse military service." Also see this article: http://www.newswithviews.com/Devvy/kidd602.ht...

7. Militarized police state: One of the darkest signs that the criminal elite are losing their grip on power is the construction of the militarized police state specifically trained to combat domestic civil unrest. Local cops with tanks and other combat gear are working with Feds at Fusion centers, active Army units are on American soil for the first time in history, the NSA spy grid is being used by the IRS and DEA, and the elimination of due process for Americans under the NDAA are just some of the tyrannical moves made to secure the elite criminals from public backlash. They're clearly scared, and they should be given what they've done to the American people and the Constitution.

8. Serious secession movements everywhere: A state seceding from a larger political entity used to be an ultra-fringe concept, until now. In America, secession movements are winning over the public in Colorado and California. In Europe, serious secession movements are happening in Spain and Scotland, as well as several EU nations flirting with the idea of dropping out the the euro. Entropy!

9. GMO food being rejected everywhere: Control the food and you control the people. True in theory, but much more difficult in practice. GMO leaders like Monsanto are being exposed. All of their economic and political strength cannot defeat the spread of knowledge about the dangers of pesticide-soaked Frankenfoods. GMO fields are being burned in protest in America and around the world, informed nations continue to reject their products, and labeling laws are gaining traction.

10. Cannabis liberation: Many reading this will think marijuana legalization is a superficial development. However, it is a major signpost that the elite's grip is fading. Enormous resources have been spent to keep cannabis illegal. Cannabis has been a powerful medicine for physical, mental, and spiritual health throughout the ages. This single plant represents a huge threat to the power structures and their industries, hence its seemingly senseless illegality. The approaching global reversal of the tyrannical policy of prohibition is the first of many concessions to come.

Tips for churches wanting to campaign
"Joining them was senior IRS official Peter Lorenzetti, who runs the agency's tax-exempt organizations division. He gave a technical briefing in which he advised against endorsing from the pulpit any candidates by name or distributing voter cheat sheets.
Then Lorenzetti hastened to add: "It is important to note, however, that an organization exempt under 501(c)3 ó in this case the church or a religious organization ó can conduct educational election activities," including holding political debates or even inviting candidates to speak to congregants.
Get-out-the-vote activities also are allowed, including driving church members to polls and knocking on doors to register people to vote.

It's a smart move. First of all, it only applies to retirees once they become eligible for Medicare and the company will give them a payment to buy supplemental coverage on a health-insurance exchange. I see nothing wrong with it. Why should a company have to manage health-benefits for employees on Medicare?

Looks like Russia and Iran have taken ownership of Syria. The US could walk away leave a couple of missile laden ships parked off Haifa and let Assad and his benefactors sink or swim.

There are 2.2 million Syrian refugees in neighboring nations so far, what's another few million or so?

Very smart move__companies such as IBM were able to attract top notch employees with promises of "free" benefits for life. Who knew that administrating benefits would come to be so damned difficult/costly when those promises were made.
