A real American

Tom Paxton was interviewed in the Irish Times last week. Tom is unhappy with a lot of his fellow countrymen who, he says, don't regard 'our President' as a real American. Well if that's true (and have I any reason to doubt a recovering acid-head?) then it's simply outrageous.

Because 'our President' is as American as motherhood and apple pie. Think about it. Almost every American I know has a Kenyan father who abandoned him as a child. Most Americans were brought up as Moslems in Indonesia, and I never met an American not having at least one of the President's names, Barak, Hussein or Obama. And I don't know this for sure, but I'll bet all real Americans have forged birth certificates as well. And think there are 57 states in the country.

So there you are, a true American. Tom, I fully agree with you.

Calling the Pharao "a real American" is sort of a membership badge for the one-worlders. Kind of a verbal masonic handshake. It signals to those in the know: "Hey, I ignore reality, too."

People within the media offer the masonic handshake quite often.

A year or so ago the Savant wondered why a list of the hottest female tennis players included the two brutes aka the Williams sisters.

Well, same thing as the topic at hand. Ignoring the obvious makes you a member of the club. Allowing reality to infiltrate your thoughts places you in the outgroup.

"If [Obama] was calling for a Congressional resolution that the sun would rise they would oppose it."

Only a liberal like Tom thinks the government can effect the rising of the sun. Or black IQ.

US ambassador urges Serbia to secure gay pride

September 28, 2011 — BELGRADE, Serbia (AP)

— The U.S. ambassador to Serbia has urged authorities to provide security for an upcoming gay pride march that has faced threats from extremists.

Mary Warlick said in a statement Wednesday that pride marches present an "important and widely-accepted vehicle" for the gay community to advocate their rights. Serbia's pride march is set for Sunday, but there are fears it could erupt in violence similar to last year's when more than 100 people were injured. A right-wing group has scheduled its own gathering on the same day.

Warlick praised the Serbian authorities for securing last year's event despite the attacks, and urged them "to do everything possible to facilitate a successful and safe event this year as well."

The U.S. government is relentlessly enforcing its mission of multiculting the world. In the case of Serbia, we actually went to war with them in order to make their neck of the woods safe for Muslims, so now the Serbians must be wondering what we'll do if they don't bow down before our latest mandate.

One might think that our government has bigger fish to fry than "encouraging" a European country to have a gay pride parade, but apparently not.


It is now getting to the point where I regard the US govt. as the biggest threat to world peace since the Soviets.
To our American cousins, sorry folks, but that's the way I see it. Unfortunately I am not alone in thinking this.

Real nations don't need ID cards or birth certificates. Eyes and ears suffice.

If an ID is required and sufficient, it's an empire.

Therefore,

when did the United States become an empire?

@ Uncle Nasty

Knowing some Serbs myself, I reckon there is no danger whatever of that country becoming effiminate.

The Serbian male has an inborn talent for ambushes. While he feels the eyes of the twin Big Brothers in Washington and Brussels upon him, he will lay low.

As soon as BB's attenition goes elsewhere the Serbs will terminate all that gay pride stuff - with extreme prejudice.

Uncle Nasty - I always saw the US as a greater threat to world peace than the Soviets. The latter, while having malign and aggressiove motives for sure, nonetheless had a very cagey foreign policy. They were always highly unlikley, IMHO, to send tanks and infantry swarming across Europe. On the oter hand, whe you look at some of the nutcases who were elected President ofthe USA..........

Having being bombed and generally fucked up by america for the last 20 years you'd imagine the Serbs would give the ambassador short shrift.

john said...

Haven't any idea who tom paxton is, but I know WHAT he is - an idiot.
Uncle Nasty makes a salient point as usual. The soviets were a huge threat to the West - but they have succeeded in their stated mission of bringing us down. So, their work is done. Remember too that soviet bolshevik jews directed the red chinese in the late 40's and 50's...
The real threat is, of course, the bastard state of incorrectly named israel. Unfortunately, the US military has been their "enforcers" for the last hundred plus years, so it just seems that we are the problem. Were we not imploding, you can bet that the red chinese would appear to be a much larger problem than they now APPEAR; they are simply sitting back and watching right now whilst economically raping us and Europe. With our technology, jobs, and blessings...

Good satire but with an inadvertant sting in the tail. Problem is, most Americans within a few generations will be a lot more like our Pres.

Even here they are led by the nose. First they teach you who to hate and then they teach you what to do. Disappointing.

John, I agree. But I think the things that are happening in the US right now (Savant's previous post) tell me that we're entering into a whole new situation, where such issues will be subjected to a lot more scrutiny.

With the reelection of the Pharao in severe doubt, I find it astonishing that Bono hasn't yet made his voice heard. Shouldn't he be exhorting Americans to reelect the man who promises to tax the filthy-rich?

Bono, where art thou in this hour of dire need?

Small consolation it may be, but at least Shakira has agreed to handle immigration policy for the Godking's administration.

With a bit of luck, they might even convince Madonna to be the new health Czar, 'cause she has toned arms and stuff.

And maybe, just maybe, the administration might convince Bono do his duty as a citizen of the world and become an advisor and public relations spokesperson for the US treasury. After all, Turbo-Tax-Timmy could only profit from some mentoring by the master himself.

Where's Bono, you ask? He's down at Bishop Tutu's birthday bash!

IT looks as though Fast And Furious is going to be the one-size-fits-all trap that destroys Obama, Holder, the BATF, the FBI, the DEA and pretty much the Democratic party.

I am happy to report that this is the scandal that not only refuses to blow away, but is the one that with every puff, burns brighter and hotter. Holder has been caught lying four times about it and even Chairman Zero is feeling the heat.

http://tiny.cc/v5286

A series of damning memos from 2010 was recently obtained by CBS News, and they indicate that Attorney General Eric Holder -- as well as several senior Justice Department officials -- were aware of the deadly program.

In one of Mr. Holder's weekly briefings in July of last year from Michael Walther, the director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, Mr. Walther had written Holder that the Phoenix-based operation was "responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to Mexican drug trafficking cartels."


The image I find most engaging is that of Chairman Zero's wife, Minnie the Moocher.

Discovering that her life of ease and indolence has been terminated, she drags the little weasel out into the Rose Garden and beats the snot out of him ... probably using one of her ho'-in-waiting daughters as a club.

Rather a nice picture.

Cheers,
UN

PS: CBS News seems to really be running with the ball, these days. I wonder if Chairman Zero insulted the CEO or something?

Islamist Winds in Egypt? 'No Jews Allowed' at Holy Site

Arab Winter: Egypt has completely barred Jews from visiting the tomb of Rabbi Abuhatzeira, grandfather of the “Baba Sali.”

Maayana Miskin

The Arab Spring is turning into an Arab Winter for Israeli and Diaspora Jews.

For the first time in recent history, Egypt has decided to completely bar Jews from visiting the tomb of Rabbi Yaakov Abuhatzeira, head of the dynasty that included Rabbi Yisrael Abuhatzeira, the famed “Baba Sali.”

The decision, issued by regional ruler Mukhtar el-Hamlawi, was reported by the Palestinian Authority news agency Wafa.

El-Hamlawi reported that a Cairo court had ruled that celebrations are forbidden at the tomb, and Jewish visitors would be barred for that reason.

In addition, he said, “We prohibit Jews from visiting the tomb because we identify with the Palestinian people, and because we do not want to offend the Egyptian public’s sensitivities.”

Egyptian opposition parties, led by the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, attempted to prevent Israeli Jews from visiting the rabbi’s tomb in 2009.

While then-President Hosni Mubarak agreed to allow the visits, the pilgrimage was cancelled for the first time as opposition parties vowed to prevent Jews from visiting.

Mubarak continued to allow Israelis to visit, and even announced in 2010 that he would grant an unlimited number of permits.

Since Mubarak’s ouster in early 2011, Salafi Islam has been on the rise, while the Jew-hating Muslim Brotherhood has been gaining political power.

The changes have led to security anarchy in Sinai, an extremely high terror alert for Israeli visitors, and persecution of religious minorities in Egypt, primarily Coptic Christians.


Now ... considering that Israel (Netenyahu) and Soros pretty much lay claim to owning Obama, and Obama is the one who pushed for the destabilization of Egypt, Yemen, Libya, (soon to be) Syria, and several others, who do we have to blame for Muslim loonies taking over the asylum?

And everyone says the Jews are smart.

Yeah, right.

Dozens of Fast and Furious Weapons Found in Mexico Cartel Enforcer’s Home

Source: LA Times

High-powered assault weapons illegally purchased under the ATF’s Fast and Furious program in Phoenix ended up in a home belonging to the purported top Sinaloa cartel enforcer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, whose organization was terrorizing that city with the worst violence in the Mexican drug wars.

In all, 100 assault weapons acquired under Fast and Furious were transported 350 miles from Phoenix to El Paso, making that West Texas city a central hub for gun traffickers. Forty of the weapons made it across the border and into the arsenal of Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo, a feared cartel leader in Ciudad Juarez, according to federal court records and trace documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The smugglers’ tactics — quickly moving the weapons far from ATF agents in southern Arizona, where it had been assumed they would circulate — vividly demonstrate that what had been viewed as a local problem was much larger. Six other Fast and Furious guns destined for El Paso were recovered in Columbus, N.M.

“These Fast and Furious guns were going to Sinaloans, and they are killing everyone down there,” said one knowledgeable U.S. government source, who asked for anonymity because of the ongoing investigations. “But that’s only how many we know came through Texas. Hundreds more had to get through.”


To our American cousins:- You have some pretty heavy artillery here, boys. Use it wisely.

Will Congress Declare a Trade War Against China?

"America is more communist than China is right now." ~ Jim Rogers

The approval ratings for both the US House and Senate are currently in dramatic free-fall. A September 2011 Gallup Poll warns that 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with how the United States is being governed.

Other findings include a near record criticism of Congress, elected officials, government handling of domestic problems, government power and waste of tax dollars. The most important finding is 49% of Americans now believe the federal government has become so powerful that it threatens the rights and freedoms of American citizens.

Failing governments throughout history have used wars as an excuse to rally citizen support for the political establishment to win elections or hold off revolutions. But with America currently involved in numerous military conflicts with falling popular support and no victories in sight, the Democrats and Republicans have decided on a contrived trade war instead.

In preparation for the 2012 elections both Democratic Senator Harry Reid and Mitt Romney, the perceived leading candidate for the GOP presidential nomination, are engaging in rampant demagoguery and brinkmanship for political gain. Still, we find it difficult to believe both parties are so desperate that they would initiate a trade war against China, America's banker that owns over one trillion of Washington treasury debt.


Way to go, boys. The chinks own your worthless arses and you want to initiate a fucking trade war?
... and here's me thinking that Emma Thompson's tame monkey had a cheek biting the hand that feeds it.

Perhaps the US govt should catch up on a bit of reading about how a gentleman named Smoot -- and his buddy named Hawley pretty much sunk the American economy six short months after America found itself in the 1929 depression ...

Further to my last, I was reading this ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoot–Hawley_Tariff_Act

That I feel I should share with you.

U.S. imports decreased 66% from US$4.4 billion (1929) to US$1.5 billion (1933), and exports decreased 61% from US$5.4 billion to US$2.1 billion, both decreases much more than the 50% decrease of the GDP.

According to government statistics, U.S. imports from Europe decreased from a 1929 high of $1,334 million to just $390 million during 1932, while U.S. exports to Europe decreased from $2,341 million in 1929 to $784 million in 1932. Overall, world trade decreased by some 66% between 1929 and 1934.


Amazing. Total imports in 1934 -- $1.6 billion ... pretty much what Obonobo and Minnie the Moocher have pissed away in overseas trips.

Whenever I feel down, I go here:

I watch those strangely hypnotic figures and think to myself "Hey ... I don't owe that money. Somebody else does ..."

Then I feel so much better.

That point about the debt clock. I thought I was the only one who found that fascinating!

Here's the clock for the UK, Canuck ... also hypnotic.

http://www.taxpayersalliance.com/debtclock/about.html

A few facts and figures for UK debt.

The national debt is the total amount of money the UK Government currently owes. This is different to the national deficit, which is the amount of money UK Government spends in excess of income. Each year we run a deficit, the national debt grows. Britain has been running a national deficit for the past 9 years.

It's not merely the huge scale of the national debt that is cause for concern, but also the rate at which it is increasing. Net borrowing this year alone will be £163 billion, and by 2014/15 the national debt is predicted to rise to £1.4 trillion.

To put this frightening rate of borrowing into context, the current rate of increase in the national debt would eat up:

* the Mayor of London's annual budget in one month

* yearly spending by the devolved Welsh Government in 35 days

* the total cost of both Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts in just 40 days

* the Bank of England's entire gold bullion reserves in just 7 weeks

* yearly spending by the devolved Scottish Government in 78 days

* the annual Defence budget in just 80 days.


What kills me about the figures immediately above, is that they do not depict the capital amount owed nor the interest accrued -- but the rate of increase of public debt alone.

One can only shake one's head and go out and de-worm the cat or something. Anything.
