I don’t usually get too political or even watch much news but I’ve had a little extra time being with Dad and couldn’t believe all the sad, crazy stuff going on just the past month….i.e.:
1)OBAMA DOESN’T RECALL NATIONAL DEBT NUMBER($16 TRILLION) – on a (9/12) David Letterman visit failed to answer Letterman’s surprising (for him) question as to the current national debt. Either Obama is pretty ignorant or more likely he just didn’t want to mention the $16 trillion figure (which is nearly double
what it was when he took office) by saying he ‘didn’t remember the exact number precisely.’ On the other hand, as Eric Wemple points out, maybe the debt’s been going up so fast he CAN’T
2) OBAMA MISSED OVER HALF OF INTELLIGENCE BRIEFINGS –
It was reported in the news recently
that Obama only attended 43% of intelligence briefings with CIA and committee members. Say what you will about George W. Bush, he never or rarely missed a meeting, according to Gov. John Sununu, who was a member of said committee under Bush and couldn’t recall
him ever missing one. Perhaps if Obama had attended more we would have had better security in Libya, Egypgt and other embassies to avoid the recent bloodshed.
3) 9/11/12 KILLING and LIKELY TORTURE OF US AMBASSADOR STEVENS
and killing of three other Americans in team 1,
after apparent missed intelligence on 9/11 of all days! Official administrationrationoale ( Youtube anti-Muslim video) was later changed to the cortrect terriorist explanation.
4)THE OBAMA ADMIN. AIDING EGYPT(which Obama even admits is no longer a ‘friendly’ country) to the tune of $1 1/2 billion
while its ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ follower sprotest the U.S. , ostensibly as a protest of some anti-Muslim youtube film made by some
hack;the real reason is most likely the 9/11 anniversary but the US ‘apologizes’ (Hillary Clinton) for the insensitve movie the govt. had nothing to do with, nonetheless,
5)OBAMA NOT WANTING TO MEET WITH PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU
at UN summit, claiming he’d be ‘out of town’ but someone else would meet him,(first time ever an Israeli Prime Minister would not be met by the sitting US President),
Tshirts, posters, etc on sale
6)earlier, the US (Democrats) removing ‘Jeruslem’ and ‘God’ from the Democratic party platform at the DNC and only after protests
from both sides awkwardly putting them back in after a ‘staged’ three time vote
7) Obama makes a tepid denunciation
of the terrorist killing and torture of our ambassador to Libya
(from nearby Piedmont, CA) and klling of three others the latter (largely forgotten by the press) after first issuing a statement
apologizing for the US’s religious intolerance!
The killing of the Libyan ambassador was an act of war
and without better security or real plans of preventative action by the US
this sort of thing will continue. Instead of Obama/govt saying the purpetrator will be ‘brought to justice’ why not make sure the Libyan govenrnment and others better securethe US consulates / embassies in the future. Especially on the anniversary of 9/11
you’d think there would have been better security called for by both Libya and the US
The US is now down to one real friend in the ever crucial middle East
and we’re in danger of losing Israel as Obama tries to appease both Jews andMuslims. Sometimes you can’t do both, especially in times like this. Right nowIsrael needs a strong voice and help from a friend – and the US needs Israeli in the Middle East!
On the local (US) front there’s a lot more sad,crazy stuff – here are just two examples:
– Are you aware that 4x (FOUR TIMES) as many people are leaving the labor force (196,000just last month per US Labor Statistics) as arejoining it? So, yes, technically unemployment may have been down a bit in August but that’s not including the numbers of those leaving the labor force.
8) The OBAMA ADMIN, RAISED THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAM BY 46% or 46 million people
and expanding welfare by 20% with longer deadlines – average person now goes 27 months without working- which only gives people another a reason NOT to look for work –
thus the 196,000 who stopped looking for work in August, not to
mention the burden on on the economy while we give away millions to perpetrators in the mid East. No wonder so many more people actually believe they’re better off now than when
obama took office four years ago, what with all these increased handouts. Welfare and food stampsare fine IF they really lead back to work. But now they’re only adding to a worseningenconomyy in ways that aren’t reported, and yes, Obama is benefitting in his election bid
with newfound admirers, happy to attain the new gifts.
9) OBAMA WIPED OUT NASA SPACE PROGRAM
with the stroke of a pen. HOpe you enjoyed ENDEAVOR’s last hurrah, recently,
because you won’t see any more space shots, trips to the moon or Mars as long s Obama is in office.
10) ‘CHANGES TO GOVERNMENT CAN’T BE MADE FROM THE
INSIDE,’ declared Obama in a recent statement. Maybe under Obama this is true and a sad fact because that closes the door on 50% of possible change and if he can’t do it from the outside , as it appears he can’t, we’re really in trouble
I think it’s important to look beyond what we see and hear in the media for possibleulterior motives, especially in this election year, ie the Libyan killing was NOT likelybecause of some independent little video but a well-planned execution aimed at the 9/11/12 anniversary.
And I’m not really a Romney supporter either, but if this kind of stuff continues… I don’t know.
I heard a self-acknowledged black conservative ono the radio today (9/20) who really brought clarity to me for the first time. He noted how the Obama administration basically acquires and keeps it’s heavy minority and poor followers by giving them what they want, ie food stamps, welfare, etc , especially when it comes to election time. Food stamps, welfare, etc. equates to votes. The sudden new monthly bailouts, coming
right before the election are no doubt intended to give a quick shot to the economy in hopes of (artificially) raising the economy just before the election FOR VOTES!. You don’t hear
Obama saying much about self-sufficiency any more, ie we can’t expect to build businesses, get jobs, etc. without the help of the government! Think about it!
So, too many things to ignore here — and within such a short period – and time to really be concerned and speak out, in my opinion, or we could not only lose Israel but our country quicker and easier than you might ever believe. It’s easy to become jaded these days and not take seriously the killing of our localbrethren like Chris Stephens and overlook even more serious threats to Israel and ourselves,only minutes away from happening. So much for my soapbox. Perhaps I’m over-reacting, or
maybe it’s not having watched TV and the news for a long time and seeing how things havechanged…even the commercials! Maybe I’m wrong, but, if not, it would be good to see more people speak out. Anyway, hoping for more positive news and events on all fronts
and hope to see some more of it soon. Happy ENDLESS SUMMER and happy NEW YEAR to our Jewish Friends
