ok, but where does Obama enter into the world of politicians paid by Monsanto?
Meet Monsanto’s prime lobbyist, Barack Obama:
After his victory in the 2008 election, Obama filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal agencies that wield tremendous force in food issues, the USDA and the FDA:
At the USDA, as the director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth Center.
As deputy commissioner of the FDA, the new food-safety-issues czar, the infamous Michael Taylor, former vice-president for public policy for Monsanto. Taylor had been instrumental in getting approval for Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.
As commissioner of the USDA, Iowa governor, Tom Vilsack. Vilsack had set up a national group, the Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership, and had been given a Governor of the Year Award by the Biotechnology Industry Organization, whose members include Monsanto.
As the new Agriculture Trade Representative, who would push GMOs for export, Islam Siddiqui, a former Monsanto lobbyist.
As the new counsel for the USDA, Ramona Romero, who had been corporate counsel for another biotech giant, DuPont.
As the new head of the USAID, Rajiv Shah, who had previously worked in key positions for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a major funder of GMO agriculture research.
We should also remember that Obama’s secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, once worked for the Rose law firm. That firm was counsel to Monsanto.
Obama nominated Elena Kagan to the US Supreme Court. Kagan, as federal solicitor general, had previously argued for Monsanto in the Monsanto v. Geertson seed case before the Supreme Court.
The deck was stacked. Obama hadn’t simply made honest mistakes. Obama hadn’t just failed to exercise proper oversight in selecting appointees. He was staking out territory on behalf of Monsanto and other GMO corporate giants.
And now let us look at what key Obama appointees have wrought for their true bosses. Let’s see what GMO crops have walked through the open door of the Obama presidency.
Monsanto GMO alfalfa.
Monsanto GMO sugar beets.
Monsanto GMO Bt soybean.
Coming soon: Monsanto’s GMO sweet corn.
Syngenta GMO corn for ethanol.
Syngenta GMO stacked corn.
Pioneer GMO soybean.
Syngenta GMO Bt cotton.
Bayer GMO cotton.
ATryn, an anti-clotting agent from the milk of transgenic goats.
A GMO papaya strain.
And soon, genetically engineered salmon and apples.
This is an extraordinary parade.
Obama was, all along, a stealth operative on behalf of Monsanto, biotech, GMOs, and corporate control of the future of agriculture.
He didn’t make that many key political appointments and allow that many new GMO crops to enter the food chain through a lack of oversight.
Nor is it coincidental that two of the Obama’s biggest supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto, respectively, in 2010.
Records don’t show Monsanto or other biotech giants pouring a landslide of (visible) campaign cash down on Obama, relative to other large donors.
Goldman Sachs was Obama’s number-one $$ donor, and Goldman touts GM-crop commodity contracts, for both buys and sells; but Goldman has its fingers in every significant money pot from Nome to Tierra Del Fuego.
The “Obama riddle” is as plain as the nose on the face of Globalism. Monsanto’s agenda, to monopolize the world’s food supply, is essential to the Globalist blueprint. That blueprint ultimately aims for redistribution of food to the world from a point of Central Planning
As president, Obama has a sworn obligation to Globalism. His oath isn’t to protect the Constitution. Are you kidding?

The Christians in Syria aligned themselves with the Assad regime and are paying the price for it. Idiots like you seem to forget that the Christian community in Iraq has been driven out because of the Bush invasion that replaced a secular government with an Islamist one.
During the last few months of GW Bush's administration, the Christians were allowed to come to the United States from Iraq--everyone knew O'bama was going to quit and the Islamists were going to take over--however in the four compounds that the United States built there are mass amounts of Iraqi Christians that work for the United States government, along side the thousands of United States' contractors--but you knew that already right? Also many Christians were welcomed to Syria from Iraq. So you don't have a problem with the thousands of Christians O'bama is murdering? got it.

Just haw many "drones" do you believe Obama has dropped? Gets awfully expensive rather quickly...perhaps he should help you finance that newer double-wide instead?

GOD Isn't leaving the emperor Any clothes - http://biblehub.com/ephesians/5-11.htm


9/11, Part 1: Facts That Don't Fit

Hopefully these facts will make you think at least a little bit -


The events of 9/11 have now faded into the backwaters of our collective consciousness and is nothing more than a memory of a horrible day when we caught a glimpse of the invisible face of the boogeyman himself. While the average person may hold strong opinions about how the events unfolded and whether or not it was an inside job, it is amazing how most people are incredibly uninformed, or perhaps more aptly, misinformed about the subject, thus leading one to wonder how these people formed their opinions in the first place [bcuz teh tv sed so]. Few even recognize the implications that the events of 9/11 have had on society in general.

So I am just going to list some obviously suspicious facts about 9/11, which suggests the possibility of the official theory being false.


1) The put options

Put options are basically bets that a certain stock will drop in value [the opposite of which being a call option]. In the days prior to 9/11, market analysts observed wildly unusual put/call ratios on the stocks of American and United Airlines.. 25 to 100 times normal. At the time, it was merely seen as a market anomaly and analysts did not know what to make of it. In fact, according to Bloomberg [THE source for financial news], on September 6th, 2001, put options on UAL stock [parent company of United Airlines] were almost 100 times higher than normal.

Basically, an unusually high number of people were betting that these airlines would have a severe setback to their business, suggesting at the very least foreknowledge of the event. The 9/11 Commission Report addressed this issue and stated that it was merely coincidence.


2) Building 7

This is considered one of the smoking guns for the controlled demolition theory. Most people are not even aware that Building 7 fell on 9/11, or that even a Building 7 existed. At about 5pm in the afternoon, WTC Building 7 collapsed into its own footprint. It was not hit by a plane and had some fire visible on a few floors. It suffered some structural damage to the exterior of the building due to falling debris, but not enough to damage it's infrastructure. After being on fire for a few hours, it became the first steel framed building to EVER collapse due to fire. Of course this is excluding the WTC Towers 1 and 2, as one can argue that they did not experience an ordinary fire due to burning jet fuel kerosene blah blah. But WTC Bulding 7 had a normal fire, and yet it still collapsed into it's own footprint.

Here is the video of Building 7's collapse. Building 7 housed offices for the CIA, Secret Service, NSA, and also Rudy Guiliani's purported headquarters of emergency operations on 9/11 [according to himself].




Also interestingly, BBC News reported the collapse of Building 7 over 20 minutes BEFORE its collapse! In fact, as the reporter was talking about the Salomon Brothers Building [aka WTC Building 7] having collapsed, you can see the building standing just over her shoulder in the background. This means that someone was feeding these news reports, and the reporters are just blindly repeating what they are told to say.

Building 7 was completely left out of the 9/11 Commission Report...

No, we are talking about the Euro-zone which all but a few nations that had to take austerity measures.

Cherry picking is for the dishonest.

Greece should have been kicked at the Euro-zone and the INF is admitting giving this birth to death social give away country a loan was a BIG mistake.

<quoted text>Look at what Obama says that he wants in Syria--he wants Assad's chemical weapons stockpile either destroyed by a U S missile strike or by a negotiation led by Russia and France to have Assad's chemical weapons delivered to international control for eventual destruction. That outcome wouldn't be aiding al Qaeda in Syria , but keep Assad's weapons of mass destruction from ever falling into their hands . It would be quite a diplomatic accomplishment if Obama and Putin could pull it off and create new momentum to move towards the international Geneva I agreement at ending the Syrian civil war.
Further,it was never the Obama policy to remove Assad from power--that's what the neocons led by John McCain, James Inhofe, and Lindsey Graham were hoping to convince the President to do. So,'D B Writer, you're so ready to get the U S military heavily involved in another Middle East war before we've even finished getting out of the two previous two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? Weakening Assad's military command & control and army would be playing right into the hands of the most powerful, best organized rebel groups fighting Assad that also happen to be the craziest, most extremist groups in Syria . The diplomat route to work with Russia and Iran who share our own fear and anxiety over the spread of chemical weapons appears to be the more rational solution and best option for success right now with the least number of bad outcomes .
Why is Obama supplying weapons to Al Qaeda?

Project for the New American Century

Quote:
The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. established in 1997 as a non-profit educational organization founded by William Kristol and Robert Kagan. The PNAC's stated goal is "to promote American global leadership."[1] Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that "American leadership is both good for America and good for the world" and support for "a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity."[2] With its members in numerous key administrative positions, the PNAC exerted influence on high-level U.S. government officials in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush and affected the Bush Administration's development of military and foreign policies, especially involving national security and the Iraq War.

Probably because that is not what Bush said.

“The president’s got a tough choice to make,” he said during an appearance on Fox News Channel as a part of a golf fundraiser for veterans.“And if he decides to use our military he’ll have the greatest military ever backing him up.”

That is about as noncommittal as you can get.
