Crack, Lies And Videotape

“Lyndon Johnson is a politician. You know the ethics those guys have. It’s like a notch underneath child molester.” — Woody Allen as Alvy Singer in the 1977 Academy Award-winning film “Annie Hall”

I remember growing up and learning about “Honest Abe” Lincoln and George Washington, who, according to my teacher, said: “I cannot tell a lie; I did it with my little hatchet.”

Times certainly have changed, because lying is all politicians do these days. Finding a successful and truthful politician is like finding a reputable lawyer.

I have no choice but to apologize to President Barack Obama for last week’s column, The Liar King. I said that Obama’s gift for lying had made him a terrible President. This past week, I have had an epiphany: Obama’s gift at lying has made him the consummate politician and, in time, will make him a beloved former President (not to me or most of you of course, but just wait and see how many schools, bridges and roads get named after him).

I came to my senses last week when it was revealed that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has totally lost his. It was a Canadian story back in May. It was said that Ford, mayor of the fourth-largest city in North America with an economy equal to the size of Sweden’s, had been caught on video smoking crack cocaine. The popular mayor said it was all made up by the media and that he had never, ever smoked crack.

It became an international story and the centerpiece of late-night comedians when this month the Toronto chief of police announced that his department had come into possession of the video, which clearly showed the mayor was smoking crack cocaine in a glass pipe.

To counter that charge, Ford said he was going to come “clean” and that, yes, in fact, he was smoking crack in the video.

“Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine,” Ford told reporters last week, offering an honest explanation, “probably in one of my drunken stupors.”

You might think the mayor would be pulled down the steps of city hall, tarred, feathered and run out on a rail. To the contrary, his poll numbers actually soared by five points from a 39 percent to a 44 percent approval rating. I wish I were clever enough to make up this kind of story, but I am not.

The inclination is to think that if people like you more because you admit to smoking crack, they, too, are probably all smoking crack. But I can tell you Toronto is a world-class city. Like all big cities, it has a crack problem; it is just that theirs is in the seat of power at City Hall. And people don’t seem to care that not only is the mayor a drunk and a drug user but that he is also a liar. In fact, he is heavily favored to win his re-election bid. Stupid Canadians, hey? I won’t argue that, but just how much smarter are people south of the 49th parallel?

Bill Clinton lied under oath. To this day I cannot believe that he was not removed from office because of that. Republican or Democrat, lying under oath is perjury. (And I’ve checked; there is no fine print in the law that says the law does not apply if it is about sex.)

It is so hard to choose favorites. I mean, there is former Vice-Presidential candidate John Edwards. It is true that he was a special case and not forgiven, but that was mostly because his dying wife did not forgive him. If she had not been ill and she had done a Hillary Clinton, I am sure Edwards would be in political office. Who knows? He might have had a successful presidential run in 2016.

And who can forget Mark Sanford? You might think voters would have told the Governor of South Carolina to take a hike after he lied about his hike and simply disappeared for six days back in June 2009. Instead, he was elected to Congress in a special election six months ago.

What Sanford did was a tad worse than calling in sick. He told his staff that he would be walking along the Appalachian Trail. He ignored 15 phone calls from his chief of staff and did not call his four sons on Father’s Day.

While his security detail was running around looking for the Governor afraid he had fallen off a cliff, Sanford was busy wining and dining his girlfriend in Argentina on a secret trip he took using public funds. As you might imagine, the now former Mrs. Sanford didn’t like being lied to. Yet people of South Carolina seem to have forgiven Sanford given that his girlfriend — Maria Belen Chapur, with a degree in “international relations” — is according to Sanford, his “soul mate.” Maybe it is because the public no longer minds electing cheats and liars that Sanford’s indiscretion has been swept under the rug.

This brings me back to Bill Clinton, a man whose dying ambition is to serve as President or at least co-President for another eight years. Given Hillary’s whirlwind California tour this past weekend, Bill may very well get his wish.

During his 1992 Presidential bid, Hillary told “60 Minutes,” “If you elect Bill, you get me.” It will be vice versa. If Hillary and Bill manage to win the Presidency in four years, it will be upon the back of one lie after another. And who will we have to blame for that? No one but ourselves.

As H.L. Mencken said, “People deserve the government they get, and they deserve to get it good and hard.”

But how could an honest politician — if even one still existed — become President of the United States? It is impossible, because he would have to admit to truths very few people want to consider, such as the truth that the national debt has soared so far out of control that massive spending cuts must be made, the truth that America’s military is stretched beyond its limits and the United States can no longer afford to be the world’s beat cop, or  this whopper of a truth: that the U.S. dollar is in jeopardy of collapsing because paying bills has come down to nothing more than the Federal Reserve’s acting worse than a Latin dictator.

If a potential candidate even hinted at these truths, the Dow Jones industrial average would fall by more than 1,000 points in less than an hour. It’s far better to fill up people with lies and, once caught, deep apologies. It’s far better to smoke the crack and then let people swallow the opiate for the masses — important issues of the day such as whether Bruce Jenner is keeping up with the Kardashians? Or who is the favorite to win the Super Bowl? Or this one, which has the attention of millions of people: What is the true relationship between Miami Dolphin players Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito? Along the way, we will get other stories from the press like how one politician after another lied to us and how they are now truly sorry plus how they are getting help with their problems. What we need to figure out is that it is these politicians that are the problem.

Yours in good times and bad,

    Destruction of the United States of America was planned and designed long ago.

    “For more than a century IDEOLOGICAL EXTREMISTS at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents … to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield OVER American POLITICAL and ECONOMIC institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal WORKING AGAINST the best interests of the United States characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world TO BUILD a more integrated GLOBAL POLITICAL and ECONOMIC STRUCTURE – ONE WORLD, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I AM PROUD OF IT.” – David Rockefeller, “Memoirs”, 2002 (Page 405)

    People, Please watch the full 2007 Interview with the Hollywood director and documentary film maker Aaron Russo (1:36:45): Reflections And Warnings

    Democracy = NWO = Endless Wars under the catchphrase/jingle “To bring Democracy to the World”

    Aaron Russo reveals that:
    1) The war on terror was a hoax. Nick Rockefeller have predicted an “event” that would trigger the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan eleven months before 9/11;

    2) The elite’s ultimate goal is micro-chip (RFID) population with the purpose to control people’s finances.

    3) Rockefeller family foundation created and bankrolled the Women’s Liberation Movement with the purpose:
    (a) to TAX ANOTHER HALF OF THE POPULATION;
    (b) to DESTROY FAMILY, which would to help the state to get children in school at an earlier age, enabling them to be indoctrinated into accepting the STATE AS THE PRIMARY FAMILY, breaking up the model of the traditional family;
    (c) which would lead to the “natural” population reduction

    “The basic agenda of Satan is to turn humans from natural laws. Whether it same sex marriage laws, interest based society or the Women act. There is no more family at home to take care of kids at home. The State is their family.” – Aaron Russo

    After many threats, Russo died on August 24, 2007 silently in his home. The
    official news was that the cancer, somehow, cause the heart attack OR a stroke.
    According to his close friends it was a planned ASSASSINATION by CIA, which was later proved to be.

      • TheOriginalDaveH

        The Woodrow Wilson quote is a nice sentiment, but there is no hard evidence that he ever really said that.
        http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:Woodrow_Wilson#.22I_am_a_most_unhappy_man….22

        • http://www.rt.com Alondra

          Dave, Did you read the link you provided en.wikiquote.org?

          It states:
          The quote is MOSTLY words Wilson actually wrote, with the first two sentences of it apparently being incorrect and the rest taken from Wilson’s The New Freedom. Below is what one can actually derive from connecting together two passages from The New Freedom:

          A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men … [W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” (Highlighted part is in the quote I cited from the Video)

          So to say that Wilson’s “quote is a nice sentiment, but there is no hard evidence that he ever really said that” is wrong. The quotation I cited is from the video and it just shorten, but the MAIN idea is there: “a government by the opinion and the duress of SMALL GROUPS OF DOMINANT MEN.”

          The full quote in the Video, I guess, is a compilation of the Wilson’s quotes from his diary (the second sentence) and his book The New Freedom.

          “President Wilson knew what he did was wrong. After serving the dark forces, he would later lament in his diary, ‘I have unwittingly ruined my country’.
          http://www.theamericandreamfilm.com/the-cast/woodrow-wilson.php

          Just for the first sentence of the cited quote in my
          comment I did not found source and I leave it under the question.

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            Did you notice, Alondra, that his book “The New Freedom”, from which the second half of your “quote” was taken, was published in 1913?
            http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14811/14811-h/14811-h.htm
            How could he have possibly made the statement that “I have unwittingly ruined my country” before the Federal Reserve was actually implemented?
            In reference to Wilson’s statement — “no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men” — by itself, what does that mean? He could be talking about anything and anybody.
            In fact, if you add the sentence preceding that sentence, we would have:
            “We have restricted credit, we have restricted opportunity, we have controlled development, and we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men”.
            Restricted credit? Restricted opportunity? Controlled development? Those all sound to me like Keynesian Propaganda in favor of a Federal Reserve.

          • WTS/JAY

            Clever, this Mr. Wilson. In his book he goes on about how it is the “Guardians” who hold sway over the political landscape of the country, and that it is essentially the “Guardians” that rule the roost, as it were…but if that be so, how is it that Mr. Wilson found himself in his position, from whence he bad-mouths the “Guardians”? Notice the disconnect?

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            The Guardians were likely those people who would keep him from enriching himself and his banker buddies.
            Funny how he rails about the Big Bad Corporations who can’t force people to work for them, and then lays the groundwork for the Government takeover of our lives.

          • WTS/JAY

            Off course!

          • http://www.rt.com Alondra

            1) Dave, in my reply I mentioned that the quote “I have unwittingly ruined my country” was from his diary and not from the book. And I provided the link. When it was made, I do not know.

            2) The Wilson’s The New Freedom book, published in 1913 “is simply an edited volume of Wilson’s principal SPEECHES from his 1912 presidential campaign.”

            Reading his longwinded and demagogical speeches you can see that he was speaking about the “New Era”, “New Order“, “Economic order”, “Human Order” and the gov’t role in the state.

            “We are facing the NECESSITY of fitting a NEW social organization, as we did once fit the old organization, to the happiness and prosperity of the great body of citizens; for WE ARE CONSCIOUS that the NEW ORDER OF SOCIETY has not been made to fit and provide the convenience or prosperity of the AVERAGE man.”
            (Chapter 1, The Old Order Changeth)

            “Yet that is but a single small detail illustrative of the difficulties we are in because we have not adjusted
            the law to the facts of the NEW ORDER.” (Chapter 1, The Old Order Changeth)

            “[O]ne of the most significant signs of the NEW SOCIAL ERA is the degree to which GOVERNMENT has become associated with business. I speak, for the moment, of the
            control over the government exercised by Big Business. Behind the whole subject, of course, is the truth that, in
            the NEW ORDER, GOVERNMENT and BUSINESS must be associated closely
            .” (Chapter 1, The Old Order
            Changeth)

            “The OLD ORDER changeth—changeth under our very eyes, not quietly and equably, but swiftly and with the noise
            and heat and TUMULT OF RECONSTRUCTION.” (Chapter 1, The Old Order Changeth)

            What attitude shall progressives take toward the existing order, toward those institutions of conservatism, the Constitution, the laws, and the courts?

            “[I]t is indeed true that we have grown tired of the institutions which we have so carefully and sedulously built
            up, then we ought to go very slowly and very carefully about the very dangerous task of altering them. We ought, therefore, to ask ourselves, first of all, whether thought in this country is tending to do anything by which we shall
            retrace our steps, or by which we shall change the whole direction of our development?” (Chapter 2, What is Progress?)

            “Mr. Jefferson said … which marked the BEGINNINGS OF OUR GOVERNMENT was that the best government consisted in as little governing as possible. And there is still a sense in which that is true. It is still intolerable for the government to interfere with our individual activities except
            where it is necessary to interfere with them in order to free them. But I feel confident that if Jefferson were living in our day he would see what we see: that the individual is caught in a great CONFUSED nexus of all sorts of complicated circumstances, and that to let him alone is to leave him helpless as against the obstacles with which he has to contend; and that, therefore, law in our day MUST COME to the assistance of the individual. It MUST Come to his assistance to see that he gets FAIR PLAY; that is all, but that is much. WITHOUT the watchful INTERFERENCE, the resolute interference, of the government, there can be no FAIR PLAY between individuals and such powerful institutions as the trusts. Freedom today is something more than being let alone. The program of a government of freedom must in these days be positive, not negative merely.” (Chapter 12, The Liberation of a People’s Vital Energies)

            ALL his speeches were to prepare people for the ‘New
            Order’ and a Federal Reserve.

            P.S. Wilson was chosen by bankers. See my reply to Jay.

          • TheOriginalDaveH

            Alondra, I find it unlikely that Wilson would have made that statement especially near his death when it could only tarnish his image.
            Unless I see a legitimate copy of the so-called Diary, I will continue to think that quote is a contrived load of BS. You shouldn’t take that personally, as we are all fed misinformation on a daily basis.

      • WTS/JAY

        “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” — Woodrow Wilson (Democrat), 1919

        I was always rather curious why Mr. Wilson never applied himself to reversing his bad decision? The reason i suspect, is that he never truly felt as remorseful as his statement seems to suggest. But then again, bankers can be very persuasive, even generous, i heard.

        • http://www.rt.com Alondra

          I am posting this reply for the second time. Firs disappear. WHY? “WHO” knows?

          Jay, Wilson was “chosen” by bankers as was the Kenyan Fraud.

          “Woodrow Wilson was elected President in 1913, beating incumbent William Howard Taft, who had vowed to veto legislation establishing a central bank. One year earlier, in 1912, Wilson was brought to Democratic Party headquarters by Bernard Baruch, a conspiring banker mogul. Here Wilson agreed to a deal with the devils in exchange for political and financial support from the
          Rockefeller-Morgan bankers.
          Wilson swore in secret that if elected President, he would support the banker’s Federal Reserve scam and push for the first ever progressive income tax on the American people.

          To divide the Republican vote (isn’t familiar scenario?) and elect this relatively UNKNOWN Wilson, J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller bankers played both sides of the election battle and poured money into the candidacy of Teddy Roosevelt and his Progressive Party to pave the way for Wilson’s ticket to win. These sophisticated political maneuverings were unknown to our great grandparents, but today we are beginning to wake up to the truth.

          Once elected, President Wilson obeyed his dark masters and enacted unprecedented changes to our great Constitution. In that single year of 1913, President Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act and the Revenue Act of 1913, chaining all future Americans to the dual horrors of the FED and the IRS. http://www.theamericandreamfilm.com/the-cast/woodrow-wilson.php

          So my question also is: If he understood what he did and “later lament”, so WHY he did NOTHING to reverse the UNCONSTITUTIONAL law with which the United States’ demise began.

          Wilson and the Whole Congress were absolutely
          aware about the fraud they are committed by passing the UNCONSTITUTIONAL law. They lied to American People.

          Watch how the Federal Reserve Act passed in the Congress in the 1913. The BOTH Parties, were bought by bankers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKeaw7HPG04#t=3m15s

      They have no choice. As John said — for them to tell the truth would certainly lose the election.
      No man can do what the Presidents claim to be able to do. No man can make 315 million people happy. Only Free Individuals have a chance to reach that goal.
      So the Candidates must lie to get elected by the people who think they can achieve that goal.

        One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.

        To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

      Then our youth see the politicians lie and seemingly get away with it. So the youth start lying and now we have a generation of young people who take no responsibility for anything at any time. Lying has become a way of life for way too many people.

        • WTS/JAY

          Absolutely, because Socialism cannot be sustained by truth.

          Socialism is the Big Lie of the twentieth century. While it promised prosperity, equality and security, socialism delivered poverty, misery and tyranny. Equality was achieved only in the sense that everyone was equal in his or her misery. Socialism is now a bankrupt, discredited, and flawed nineteenth century theory that has failed miserably in countries around the world.

          In the same way that a Ponzi scheme or chain letter initially succeeds but eventually collapses, socialism may show early signs of success. However, as we have seen recently, any initial success of collectivism quickly fades as the fundamental deficiencies of central planning emerge. It is the initial illusion of success that gives government intervention its pernicious, seductive appeal. In the long run, socialism has always proven to be a formula for tyranny and misery. -Mark J. Perry, Ph.D.

            The only problem is MEANWHILE socialism is alive and well right now, in this country and it is moving forward. Those of us who are smart enough to know there will be misery are trying to thwart socialism, but it seems some just have to experience the misery of it BEFORE they can admit it is a bad thing. Example Obamacare and the case of the canceled insurance plans and the failed and flawed web page and those who are hoping it will get better coverage AND cheaper coverage.
            Ha I almost choked just writing that!

            This is only the beginning, and this is only a minor thing too. Just wait if you don’t like this, you certainly won’t like the rest of it!!!

      • WTS/JAY

        Jana: Then our youth see the politicians lie and seemingly get away with it. So the youth start lying and now we have a generation of young people who take no responsibility for anything at any time.

        The only difference, Jana, is that when our youth break the law, they get punished, but when politicians break the law, they are rewarded with a vacation.

        • Jana

          Sadly, not all of our youth get punished for lying. Obama didn’t. He got rewarded. Many kids on welfare say they can’t get a job but haven’t even tried, so good ole Uncle Sam just gives them a check.
          We aren’t really doing these kids any favors either.

            Well Jana, our jails are full and bursting at the seams, and more are being built. So no, the State is not doing these kids any favours. But i hear the correctional-industry is booming, and it’s stocks are rising. Clever, aren’t they?

          • Jana

            These kids think they are oh so clever but they actually( as the Bible says there is nothing new under the sun) aren’t really trying anything new, they just think they are IF and that is a mighty big if they even think.

        So Now ODUMBO is encouraging risky behavior through these inane ads. So much for being RESPONSIBLE right??. The message is as it always has been with liberals engage in reckless activities you’ll be taken care of.

        If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever

        To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the wolf, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

        Actually this particular comment was rather rare for me. Certainly saying I “always” do this is untrue. Mostly I state facts (as I see them) or ask questions. And most of the replies I get here from folks contain insults and foul language. That says a lot about some far right types. Sorry to say so but there you have it.

          I too am waiting so see any facts from you, for facts to you are those that are pulled out of thin air to swathe your ineptness on all things rational. Liberal one dimensional idiot-ology dictates you make things up as you go that
          way you can blame others for your failures. Nothing is ever your or your party’s fault So whenever you have trouble defending and/or nothing to substantiate your positions you simply fall back on the blaming of others then revert to character assassination.. Then all your liberal inadequacies are soon to be forgotten

            Point in fact, some troubling news from Ontario.

            Pedophilia Advocate to Address Ontario Teachers…

            October 7, 2013

            Not satisfied that a professor was charged with making child porn, OISE has invited a pedophile advocate to speak to a conference. This is more evidence the Illuminati is mainstreaming pedophilia through their liberal/socialist fronts.

            OISE- the place where many of our teachers are trained- has invited James Kincaid, author of “Child Loving” to speak at an upcoming conference Sat Oct. 19 at 9 am. Mr. Kincaid’s objective is to “de-mystify pedophilia”, and he claims that our society has falsely demonized child-molesters.

            REALLY?!?

            Mr. Kincaid goes on to say that we, as a society, like to “watch, and enjoy the erotic child without taking any responsibility for our actions” (CL pp 375).

            In other words – we are all a bunch of pedophiles in the closet, just waiting to get out. In fact, Kincaid calls himself a “theoretical pedophile”.

            Is this the kind of person we want shaping the minds of our teachers, and through them our students? NO! It is time to stand up to the pedophilia pushers in Ontario.

            Last spring, we saw the Toronto District School Board condone a teacher exhibiting explicitly gay porn in his classroom. Children as young as 12 were in that classroom. He is now back teaching, and the TDSB chair Chris Bolton didn’t have a problem with the materials shown.

            This summer, a deputy minister of education- Benjamin Levin (a former Deputy Minister of Education)was charged with making and distributing child pornography, counselling to commit an indictable offence and an arrangement to commit a sexual offense against a child under the age of

            And now this. There is a problem in education in Ontario- and it isn’t a matter of the three R’s, but the three X’s.

            Everything is very good…just went through some minor outpatient surgrey on 10/30 to remove some skin cancer…two spots were basal cell carcinoma one spot was the bad one, a malignant melanoma. Report last wednesday from my surgeon was that all of the tissue removed came back negative…great news. I had a PET scan done today, necessary but a pain in the U-Know-What! I’ve been skeet shooting pretty regularly and I should be going duck hunting within the next few weeks.

            Hey, I built a new AR15 a few months ago and tomorrow I’m updating the stock to a 6 posiyion ATI and mounting a new Nikon P223 3×9 scope on it.

            Jeff, I’m glad to hear you “dodged the bullet”!!! As for the Ar15, I’m officially jealous!!! sounds like a fine specimen!! Still stuck with my 9mm n my 22 mag. but they keep me active, so to speak. Had a building project to finish that “acquired” most of my extra funds this summer but next summer I will purchase a new rifle and a .40 semi. have them picked out at Fin Feather Fur in my area. they have some real decent prices.

          • JeffH

            Joe, because of the backlogs due to the election It took me about 6 months to get all of the parts in. What you see in the picture cost about $800. It’s an RGUNS lower with an RGUNS 20″ fluted bull barrel upper and ProMag detachable flip sights. She operates smooth, like a hot knife thru butter. Adding the Nikon scope and mount + the ATI stock kit added about $375…well worth the wait.

          • 5live5

            The pictures are beautiful. May it give you great service. I think back to my service days and I still would like to have an M14. I loved that rifle. a little heavy but it just served to steady it in my hands. Accurate as all hell as well. The 7.62 had real good stopping power too. By the time I headed to /Nam they were using the M16. being a door gunner, I got real used to the 60 as well. It was a stopper, and the used spring rod was good for throwing. A weapon of any kind, right?

          • JeffH

            I think the M-14 is my favorite but they’re so dang expensive. My ex-neighbor had a match grade M-14 and it was the bomb. I wasn’t in the service but I did get to handle, not shoot, an M-60 on the USS Missouri docked in SF years ago…heavy @ 32 lbs if memory serves me right.

            I’ll admit, being a gun guy who appreciates good quality weaponry, that I was drooling when the marine handed the M-60 to me. This was one of the marines attached to the Missouri which was open to the public that day…probably late ’80’s. Ya think SF would allow such a display today?

          • 5live5

            Not a chance! Especially to hand an operational weapon to a civilian. Hell they probably wouldn’t even allow the ship to dock there! If they saw the “big guns” on it, they’d pee their panties!!

    There has to be value in the lie, some reward from lying that is greater than ones character, greater than position, status, and honor. That said, BHO is a man who is surely lacking good character, disgraces the position of the Presidency, and is without honor, as he continue to spit on this countries founding documents and the people who want to protect it. The questing being asked now is will the House and Senate, those who we have elected into positions to protect our nation from the likes of BHO, going to do something about it, or are they going to watch as our country gets sucked into this Obamacare black hole. They have a responsibility to the citizens of this country to shred Obamacare before it’s too late, and impeach the BHO before he commits more crimes against these United States. Action is needed now, the WEB site is a smoke screen, it will end up as a portal to hell for this country if this abomination if allowed to continue even for another week. God Bless us all!

        So true. Unfortunately there are far to many to list.

  • 5live5

    Show me a successful politician and I’ll show you a man/woman that has lied through their teeth 90% of the time! There are very few exceptions to this!

    • WTS/JAY

      Bush?

      • 5live5

        See, WTS/JAY, that’s where you assume. I never said that I supported Bush. You just assumed I did. There are a few right here that will tell you that even in the last election I supported Ron Paul. McCain is a worthless doddering old fool that threw the election. All I said to you is that Saddam was just as bad or worse than our pols. YOU are the one that took offense at that.

        • WTS/JAY

          I believe that yesterday you accused me of being a Saddam supporters, simply because i asked you to provide evidence for the atrocities you claimed he committed.

          5live5: All I said to you is that Saddam was just as bad or worse than our pols. YOU are the one that took offense at that.

          No, you did not say that. Here’s our full conversation.

          5live5 says to Brandon Smith:

          Much worse? Fine distinction. I don’t see our leaders raping women daily just because they want a woman at the time. I don’t see them cutting out the tongue of a man just because he speaks out against the government. Saddam did this and worse. worse yet he reveled in it! The worst thing our government did was try to build a democracy in an area of muslims that hated the process, thus killing a lot of our men and women needlessly! We need to get the hell out of the UN as you are judged by the company you keep. Under Kofie Annan the un troops raped and killed women and children in Africa, without criminal proceedings being brought against them. That is the legacy of the UN and I despise them for that!

          5live5: Saddam did this and worse. worse yet he reveled in it!

          WTS/JAY: Where is the evidence for this, 5live5?

          5live5: how about women that testified here in the US after escaping from Iraq? there were also men that also testified. One man even testified how Saddam took his wife because he desired her! Saddam was an animal and that is an insult to animals!

          5live5 to Muffin Man Mashinksy: Look up the site I posted. He also raped women! he also ordered torture of men and women!

          WTS/JAY: Again, where is the evidence for this, mainstream media?

          5live5: go to http://www.int-review.org/terr33a.htm... look up the piece titled Fear-Saddam’s Chosen Method of Staying in Power. Just as good as your article!! And you don’t have to sign up to see it!

          5live5: This was before the start of the war, DO your OWN research if you aren’t pro Saddam!

          WTS/JAY: Don’t you find it a bit coincidental that all the stories of Saddam’s atrocities began to surface just prior to the Iraq invasion, 5live5? But where were the stories of Saddam’s atrocities prior to, during, or after the 8 year war he waged against Iran? He was America’s darling then. America supplied him with whatever he needed to succeed in his overthrow of the Shaw of Iran, only to be replaced with the psychotic Khomeini.

          Perhaps, all that is said about Saddam is true, and it probably is, but he was no more evil than our own administration. That’s for sure!

          5live5: What? are you related to the dude?? Sure sounds like it. your posts are all true and anybody else’s are just attempts to besmirch his name??? Get real, man open your blind eyes!

          • 5live5

            That is true and all I posted is just as true as yours! I posted proof just as you asked. YOU are the one that keeps keeping on, not me! If you can’t accept MY truth then don’t post yours! What is your problem with me? Can you contradict what I posted? show me one here in the US that has raped. now not some place that I have to sign up for to see it either!

          • WTS/JAY

            Never mind, 5live5, carry on.

          • WTS/JAY

            Hey, no hard feelings, 5live5.

          • 5live5

            no sweat.

    I’d like to describe Obama with a short story,
    While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, the doctor
    struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to
    Obama and his role as our president. The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a “Post Turtle”.

    Not being familiar with the term, the doctor
    asked him, what a ‘post turtle’ was. The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving
    down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.

    The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the
    doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by
    himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up
    there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what
    kind of dumb #$%$ put him up there to begin with.”

    John, some of these liars are still better than their opponents. That’s probably why Sanford was elected. If I was in SC, I would definitely vote for him over traitorous Flimsey Graham.

    A guy is walking along a Florida beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. A genie appears and tells him he has been granted one wish.
    The guy thinks for a moment and says, “I want to live forever.”
    “Sorry,” said the genie, “I’m not allowed to grant eternal life.”
    “OK, then, I want to die after the Democrats balance the budget and eliminate the debt.”
    “You’re a crafty little bastard,” said the genie…….

      A Conservative and a Genie

      A conservative came upon a genie and said, “You’re a genie. Can you grant me three wishes?” The genie replied, “Yes, but only if you’re feeling generous enough to share your good fortune.” The conservative said, “I’m a conservative. I’m always happy to share.” The genie said, “O.K., then, whatever you wish for, I’ll give every liberal in the country two of it. What’s your first wish?” “I would like a new sports car.” “O.K., you’ve got it, and every liberal in the country gets two sports cars. What’s your second wish?” “I’d like a million dollars.” “O.K., you get a million dollars, every liberal gets two million dollars. What’s your third and final wish?” “Well, I’ve always wanted to donate a kidney.”

        Provocateur!

  • WTS/JAY

    An economics professor at the University of Florida said while he had never failed a single student before, he had failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that under socialism no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor said ok, we will have an socialism experiment.

    All grades would be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one should fail and no one should receive an A.

    After the first test all the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied little were happy, while the students who studied hard were very upset.

    For the second test, the students who studied little studied even less and the students who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied less. The second Test average grade was a D! The entire class was upset.

    By the 3rd test the average grade was an F.

    The scores never increased as blame, bickering, name calling all resulted in hard feelings. No one wanted to study for someone else. The entire class failed to their great surprise.

    The professor explained that socialism would ultimately fail, not because the harder to succeed the greater the reward principle, but because when a government or society takes all the reward away; no one will try or succeed.

    It’s another fine day in the good fight for our great country. I see the libturds and progturds are in full retreat as the patriots are sweeping the field. Keep up the good fight fellow patriots. Give no quarter and take no quarter! Here is an article that describes how the Egyptians have charged Obama bin Laden with crimes against humanity. What else is new?

    http://www.wnd.com/2013/11/criminal-charges-filed-against-obama/#hJrKslZw51x3jvQc.99

    Let’s hope it sticks. We can have Obama bin Laden go through his own version of the Nuremburg Trials. Here is an article that has a Chinese athlete describing freedom. It seems the libturds and progturds have forgotten what real freedom is.
