It used to be a tradition that the previous President did not comment on the current President. Jimmy Carter was the first ex President I am aware of that didn't follow that tradition that became the norm in the United States.
Republicans still hold to that tradition. All Democrat ex Presidents since Carter have violated it.

Jesse Ventura just won a tidy sum in a lawsuit against a writer who told lies about him; if that sets a precedent, then President Obama should clean up quite well suing all these liars and slanderers.
The writer did not lie about Ventura. The episode occurred as the real SEAL said it happened, it is just that the jury was loaded with idiots like you. The testimony was that it happened and Ventura had no witnesses. BTW, Ventura was never a SAEL, never set foot in Vietnam, and never saw combat anywhere but in his mind, yet he claimed he was a former SEAL, and was in combat in Vietnam. Who is the liar again?

Will the president try to sue those of us who know he is a homosexual and Muslim.

The New York Times takes down the Clinton Foundation. This could be devastating for Bill and Hillary
By Tim Stanley US politics Last updated: August 14th, 2013

An internal review of the Clinton Foundations' workings has proved troubling
Is the New York Times being guest edited by Rush Limbaugh? Today it runs with a fascinating takedown of the Clinton Foundation – that vast vanity project that conservatives are wary of criticising for being seen to attack a body that tries to do good. But the liberal NYT has no such scruples. The killer quote is this:
For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by a rotating board of old Clinton hands, vulnerable to distraction and threatened by conflicts of interest. It ran multimillion-dollar deficits for several years, despite vast amounts of money flowing in.
Over a year ago Bill Clinton met with some aides and lawyers to review the Foundation's progress and concluded that it was a mess. Well, many political start-ups can be, especially when their sole selling point is the big name of their founder (the queues are short at the Dan Quayle Vice Presidential Learning Center). But what complicated this review – what made its findings more politically devastating – is that the Clinton Foundation has become about more than just Bill. Now both daughter Chelsea and wife, and likely presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton have taken on major roles and, in the words of the NYT "efforts to insulate the foundation from potential conflicts have highlighted just how difficult it can be to disentangle the Clintons’ charity work from Mr Clinton’s moneymaking ventures and Mrs Clinton’s political future." Oh, they're entangled alright.
The NYT runs the scoop in its usual balanced, inoffensive way – but the problem jumps right off the page. The Clintons have never been able to separate the impulses to help others and to help themselves, turning noble philanthropic ventures into glitzy, costly promos for some future campaign (can you remember a time in human history when a Clinton wasn't running for office?). And their "Ain't I Great?!" ethos attracts the rich and powerful with such naked abandon that it ends up compromising whatever moral crusade they happen to have endorsed that month. That the Clinton Global Initiative is alleged to have bought Natalie Portman a first-class ticket for her and her dog to attend an event in 2009 is the tip of the iceberg. More troubling is that businessmen have been able to expand the profile of their companies by working generously alongside the Clinton Foundation. From the NYT:
Last year, Coca-Cola’s chief executive, Muhtar Kent, won a coveted spot on the dais with Mr. Clinton, discussing the company’s partnership with another nonprofit to use its distributors to deliver medical goods to patients in Africa.(A Coca-Cola spokesman said that the company’s sponsorship of foundation initiatives long predated Teneo and that the firm plays no role in Coca-Cola’s foundation work.)

In March 2012, David Crane, the chief executive of NRG, an energy company, led a widely publicized trip with Mr. Clinton to Haiti, where they toured green energy and solar power projects that NRG finances through a $1 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative.
This is typical Clinton stuff. The second thing I ever wrote for this website was about how corporations invest in politicians as a way of building their brand and raising their stock price. It can lead to some funny partnerships. This, from 2011:
Just this month, bedding manufacturer Serta announced that it will be sponsoring Bill Clinton’s keynote address to an industry conference in August. "To us,"’ said the head of the company, "Clinton represents leadership. This appearance shows Serta is a leader and is taking a leadership position. This singles us out." Some might say that it is beneath a former president to basically endorse Serta’s new "Perfect Sleeper" line, even with its "revolutionary gel foam mattress".
The cynical might infer from the NYT piece that the Clintons are willing to sell themselves, their image, and even their Foundation's reputation in exchange for money to finance their personal projects. In Bill's case, saving the world. In Hillary's case, maybe, running for president.
It's nothing new to report that there's an unhealthy relationship in America between money and politics, but it's there all the same. While the little people are getting hit with Obamacare, high taxes and joblessness, a class of businessmen enjoys ready access to politicians of both Left and Right that poses troubling questions for how the republic can continue to call itself a democracy so long as it functions as an aristocracy of the monied. Part of the reason why America's elites get away with it is becuase they employ such fantastic salesmen. For too long now, Bill Clinton has pitched himself, almost without question, as a homespun populist: the Boy from Hope. The reality is that this is a man who – in May 1993 – prevented other planes from landing at LAX for 90 minues while he got a haircut from a Beverley Hills hairdresser aboard Air Force One. The Clintons are populists in the same way that Barack Obama is a Nobel prize winner. Oh, wait…

Mia Marie Pope: Barack Obama a 'walking fictional character'
Mia Marie Pope, a childhood friend Of president Obama, has come forward recently with some shocking claims about the president's teenage years in Hawaii.
Darren Pope
Myrtle Beach Independent Examiner
November 17, 2013
On Thursday the Myrtle Beach Independent Examiner published an article outlining shocking claims by Mia Marie Pope, a childhood friend of President Obama. Pope spoke candidly about her experiences with Obama in Hawaii during the late ‘70s in part one of an interview with Jeff Rense earlier this week. Part two of that interview was released yesterday, and Pope revealed even more eye-opening information about the mysterious past of Barack Obama. A past that many people believe has been carefully hidden from public view.
Rumors of Obama’s homosexuality have persisted for years, and Pope claims to have direct knowledge of Obama’s teen lifestyle, which she says included exchanging sexual favors for cocaine. Obama, or “Barry,” as she knew him, was openly homosexual, Pope says.
“Barry just had, almost had, just like a little bit of a disdain almost (towards females),” Pope told Rense,“and it was like there was nothing on a girl’s body that was of any interest to this guy.”
Pope also addressed rumors that the wedding ring worn by Obama is not actually a wedding ring, but that he “has been wearing it for over 30 years, and it has Arabic writing on it. You can find it on YouTube, so you don’t have to take my word for it. Just put it in the search box,‘Barack Obama, No God but Allah,’ and ask about the ring.”
Pope also talked about Obama’s propensity to lie with Rense. Pope says Obama was a pathological liar. Given the endless string of lies we have heard from him over the course of his five years in office, Pope’s claim isn’t hard to believe.
“I will tell you that [he lied] so often, and it was always some self-aggrandizing thing. Some egocentric, you know,‘everybody’s stupid, Barry’s the only smart one.’ It was always some outlandish, nonsensical thing.”
Obama has also been reported to have a quick temper. A New York Times report last week described the president as ‘seething’ over the disastrous ObamaCare rollout. That report said that Obama called for an Oval Office meeting with senior staff members that one aide called "an unsparing dressing down."
Pope says she witnessed that temper first-hand.“He’s got a temper,” she told Rense,“Barry will size you up, take some inventory, if you’re useful, if there’s something he wants to get off you...then he puts the game on. If he gets what he wants from you, then he’s done with you.”
“But there’s other times,” Pope continued,“where he’s trying to run a game, and then we’d blurt in,‘shut up, Barry, stop lying,’ and we’re ruining his little short con that he’s trying to work, he’s got a temper.”
Describing his persona, Pope describes Obama as “narcissistic.” She also told Rense,“He’s a shell. He’s a walking fictional character.”
Pope goes into detail about these subjects and more in her interview with Rense. You can listen to the part two by clicking the link in the first paragraph of this article. Part one can be found here.
And what's the proof that she's telling the truth and not just pulling this out of her anal orifice?
You wing nuts will believe anything.

Gaza and Self-Defense

I’ve found the predictable defenses of this operation to seem even more hollow and bankrupt than they seemed when they were being used to defend the use of force in 2008-09 or in 2006. The use of force isn’t just excessive. Force is being used with the knowledge that it will mostly kill civilians, whose deaths can then be perversely used to blame the entire conflict on the other side alone. At the same time, those deaths aren’t given the same weight or importance as the deaths of other innocents elsewhere, because the conventional “pro-Israel” view holds that all people in Gaza more or less deserve whatever happens to them.

The current operation grew out of the government’s deception about who was responsible for the kidnapping of the three Israelis, but even if the original claim had been entirely true it wouldn’t have warranted the massive overkill and collective punishment that have been going on for the last few weeks. Not only is the operation creating far greater evils than the ones it is supposed to remedy, but it is also difficult to identify what the purpose of the operation is. Waging war that inflicts disproportionate harm would be bad enough, but to wage a war that doesn’t seem to have any discernible strategic goal–or indeed any purpose besides raining devastation on a largely defenseless population–is inherently wrong. It’s not self-defense, and it makes a mockery of the idea of self-defense to claim otherwise.
