Let’s face it, this relationship with the Obama administration just isn’t working out. I’m going to give some concrete reasons why. I’m also going to give my opinion at the end of this article. Let me say that this list is flabbergasting. Anyone with any common-sense can figure out why. I didn’t enjoy writing this at all. It’s because I’m an American citizen. All of this was done in my name and the name of every American citizen. It’s about time we changed the direction of this government and you can’t do it at the ballot box voting for the Democrat or Republican they decide to put in front of you. There isn’t a dimes worth of difference between the political parties. The Democrats represent fascism light while the GOP represents regular fascism. Here’s what’s going on:

Finian Cunningham of Global Research will be with me tonight to speak to us about Bahrain and their failed Arab Spring. With U.S. help, the Kingdom continues to suppress their Democracy movement. The U.S. Fifth Fleet has their home port there.

Another question we’ll discuss: Is Democracy Coming to the U.S.A.? Continue reading

Graffiti "4 More Years of Fascism"

We can evaluate Obama’s track record using statistics and apply them to unemployment, GNP, military spending and inflation (or deflation). This is probably how the GOP will try to portray his presidency. It’s an effective strategy mainly because many economic indicators were better when he took office then they are today. It’s easy to point to statistics and convince people, based on empirical evidence, that this nation was in better shape when George W. Bush was President. In fact, it’s so easy to manipulate numbers, that even a brain-dead candidate like Romney could “prove” that things have undoubtedly gone downhill since Obama took office.

How Did We Let this Happen? By Timothy V. Gatto

Every nation gets the government it deserves. (Joseph-Marie, comte de Maistre (1 April 1753 – 26 February 1821) was a Savoyard lawyer, diplomat, writer, and philosopher.)

This is a fact not an opinion. When I first read this quote, I believed the author had it wrong. I thought about nations that had governments forced on them, from outsiders and from their own people. The more I thought about it, the more convinced I became that the author had it wrong. Continue reading

This is an article that I MUST write about. If I don’t write this article than I have no right to ever write another. The reason is because the most despicable and damaging piece of legislation ever passed was passed in the Senate late last night without hardly a whimper in the morning from the American mainstream press. Under the cover of darkness, the United States Senate virtually declared war on the people of this nation by passing the darkest piece of legislation ever passed in America.

Today was the day that the powers that are fought back. As Gandhi told us in the last century; “First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. Then they fight you. Then you win.” We are now fast approaching the end stage. It may not feel like it now, but consider that the Occupy Movement is scarcely two months old. We are now receiving major headlines in the mainstream media, and the frightened pawns of the corporate world are fighting back.

I have to admit that I’m really pissed off. It’s no longer just being angry about the situation in Washington; it’s about what’s happening to America. This country is failing. People are unemployed, and we are neglecting the poor and homeless. What’s happening here? Where is the government when it comes to protecting the welfare of the people? Why are so many crazies in the House and Senate? I’m talking about my Senators; Jim DeMint and Bang-Bang Lindsey Graham who used to be sane. The South Carolina Senators do not represent me.

Since 9/11 the United States has been under a constant barrage of lies, misinformation and propaganda put out by the United States government in order to advance its global agenda. There have been many in the alternative media that have attempted to tell the truth in order that American citizens have access to facts and information that they normally would never have received from the American mainstream media. These people have been maligned and impugned and called conspiracy theorists and political radicals.

Tottenham Riots

The British government has charged that the riots are being caused by an increase in “criminality”. This is patently ridiculous. What is the difference in London or Manchester now than last year? If these riots are presumed to be the act of “criminals”, then what triggered these “criminals” to riot? If “criminality” is the reason why people are on the streets destroying neighborhoods and looting shops, why is it happening all over the country? Continue reading

From The Heritage Foundation, a Conservative Think-Tank:

“Abstract: Since 2000 about 95 percent of U.N. member states that receive U.S. assistance have voted against the United States most of the time in the U.N. General Assembly on non-consensus votes. The U.S. should inform aid recipients that their support–or lack of support–for U.S. priorities in the U.N. and other international organizations will directly affect future decisions on allocating U.S. assistance. In order to strengthen and broaden support for America’s policies in the U.N., the U.S. should also seek to build coalitions of like-minded nations that are firmly committed to political and economic freedom. Over the long term, U.S. aid could facilitate the expansion of these coalitions by encouraging more countries to become freer, both politically and economically”.

This country is in a mess right now. You can blame it on Clinton, Bush or Obama, but the reality is that it’s more like all three, along with most of the people that they brought into their administrations. It also was not only those that worked for and with the executive branch,  included were Congressmen, Senators, and lobbyists, along with just about anyone else that has had any influence in Washington for the last twenty years.

The simple fact is that we have lost our democracy (if we ever had one to begin with). Sure, the government gives us an appearance of Democracy but the facts are that the people are excluded from any decisions! In this article I’m going to provide the reader with links to most of what I claim. This is what most readers and site owners now require. Unlike the mainstream media that throws opinion out when supposedly covering the “news”, those in the alternative media now desire that their writers show proof of what they write. Here’s an example of Russia Today defending itself from charges that they are “anti-American”.  Media assault on RT
