Putin Answers Questions

Once each year the Great Leader takes some time in order to respond to each and every question that is posed him by those who are peasants in the land. OK, so he does not answer each and every question, but after three hours and fifty eight minutes of his wisdom, who can deny this man, a bit of rest. We can not provide the entire range of responses since that would consume hours of your time, but at least we can submit a few choice comments from the man who knows all:

Q: How many hours do you sleep each night?” from a five year old Russian.

R: “I’m happy that you love to sleep.” OK, he sort of did not answer the question, but he did discuss sleep.

Q: Why did we take the Crimea?

R: I had to listen to the voice of the people of Crimea.” He did hold a referendum, didn’t he?

Q: Will Russia allow the people in the Kurile Islands to vote about joining Japan?

R: “Why would any person want to be part of Japan rather than our Beloved Russia?

Q: Do you enjoy speaking with the Russian people?

R: “Yes.”

Q: Do you believe in God?

R: “Yes.”

I submitted the following question but it was not answered.

“So, how much money do you exactly have in your bank account?”

The New American Foreign Policy

Seventy years ago the United States was confronted with a Cold War against the Soviet Union. For some reason, this threat by a nation that had atomic bombs did not persuade the Congress of the United States that it should look over the shoulder of presidents and make certain that he did not sign any agreements without first voting on it. Every American president handled foreign policy and we never had a war with the Soviet Union. Examine the record:

1. President Eisenhower offered to share atomic secrets with the world and reached out to the Soviet Union.

2. President Kennedy engaged in secret agreements with the Soviet Union without Congress getting in his way.

3. President Richard Nixon recognized the Communist China which killed over twenty thousand Americans during the Korean War. No Congress input.

4. President St. Ronald Reagan made agreements withe the Soviet Union about nuclear weapons. No Congress input.

5. Heck, President George Bush I invaded Iraq without a declaration of war by Congress

6. Of course, George Bush II sort of invaded Iraq.

Not once in the diplomatic history of our foreign policy has Congress demanded to oversee what a President does in his foreign policy negotiations.

So, why now now?

Anti-Immigrant Hysteria

There is no question that throughout the entire world a growing anger is being felt toward the Immigrant. The Popular Front political party in France has now grown to over twenty percent of the vote due to its open hatred of The Immigrant. In England, the UKip promises to rid the country of immigrants. Germany has an anti immigrant political movement. Italy, which is the main target of African immigrants, has a growing anger toward any immigrant. Oh, Italians also hate Roma immigrants from eastern Europe. Turkey is now home to hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees who are hated by millions of Syrians. South Africa which has an economy that includes modern industry has become the object of over five million immigrants from African societies that do not have economies offering alternative job opportunities other than farming. The message is clear- fewer and fewer people want to farm, at least farm the old fashioned way which requires hard work and depends on the weather.

These immigrants share one thing in common. They will take any physical labor job, they will do the dirty work of modern societies, they will accept lower wages because they fear being deported, and they lack any form of protection by government. They readily become a political talking point by demagogues such as Ted Cruz or anyone who just wants to get votes. The immigrant is a modern wandering person knowing no home, having no friend and never welcomed by those who claim to believe in some form of religion.

Oh, Ted Cruz actually was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father.

Media And Hillary

The silly season has just begun and we can look forward to about fifteen months of silliness as members of the media follow every single aspect of the life of Hillary Clinton. You can expect media stories about he following events in the daily life of Hillary Clinton.

1. An expose about what she did NOT eat today.

2. Hillary drinks coffee which leads to a discussion about what is the real American coffee a political leader must drink.

3. Hillary wore dark glasses –WHAT IS HILLARY HIDING FROM THE PUBLIC?

4. Or, HILLARY DARK GLASSES HIDES THE BILL SLAP ON HER FACE

5. Why didn’t Hillary walk the dog today? Does this mean she hates dogs?

6. An in-depth analysis of Hillary Clinton’s clothes.

7. Why doesn’t Hillary baby sit her grandchild?

8. The ultimata exposure: “Are Monica Lewinsky and Hillary secret lovers”???

9. Who really was the father of the Clinton child?

I hope these stories prepare you for the silly season that already has begun.

Bibi Insults Holocaust Survivors!

Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu insists that he alone is concerned about the state of Israel and he alone knows what is best for the Middle East. Yesterday, he compared the nation of Iran to the Nazis and made some connection to the Holocaust and modern Iran. This comparison insults every single person who was in the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the first human experience in which a government decided to murder every single person because of the circumstances of their birth. Every person who was born Jew was destined to be murdered by German troops. There were no exceptions, death was the FINAL SOLUTION. According to Bibi this definition can be applied to the government of Iran. He also claims that Iran considers itself the “master race.” Let us examine the record.

1. At no point since attaining control of the Iran government have its troops been sent to invade another country.

2. Iran was invaded by Iraq in 1980, but no murder of Iranian Jews then occurred.

3. Iran never used poison gas on any other people.

4. At present there are about 15,000 Jews in Iran and they have one member in its Parliament.

The nation of Israel since 1979 has invaded Lebanon, it has sent planes to destroy plants in Syria, it has invaded Gaza on several occasions.

The Iranian people are proud of their country but there is no case of Iranian leaders proclaiming they are a master race and there is no case of Iranian troops murdering Jews, let alone any other group of people.
We may disagree with Iran, but they are not led by Nazis!

When Does It Stop??

I recently was with some relatives in New York who insist that President Obama “plays the race card” since he has the habit of making comments about the death of black skinned young men. There is a considerable group within this nation which insists that police are always right when they shoot someone whose skin is black. These same people insist the Internal Revenue Bureau is always wrong and consist of government workers whose only goal is damaging the rights of Americans not to pay their taxes. It is interesting how these Americans have absolutely no respect for any government official who works for the IRS but never doubt the work of those working for the police department. I assume this attitude stems from the fact that white skinned Americans rarely are halted while driving their cars except for when going at a rathe thigh speed rate. If one is never halted for silly things like a broken headlight, or of course, if so halted, the cop is polite and urges that you fix it.

Levar Jones was halted by police because he did not have the seat belt on. How many thousands have done that at one point or another? Oh, he was then shot for “reaching for a weapon” and thus died. One day a black man dies for a broken headlight, the next day for not wearing his seat belt. Such is the REALITY of life for black skinned men. How many times has a white skinned women been halted other than for speeding?

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

South Africa, Mail & Guardian: “Take Education Seriously”

I will be testing for how students take education seriously.

Sweden, Local: “I’m On Antidepressants”

Barck Obama after a session with congressmen?

Canada, Toronto Star: “Don’t Freak Out”

Ted Cruz will not be the next president.

UK, Guardian: “Gunned Down In Cold Blood”

Is there any other way to handle a broken tail light violation?

Norway, Norway Post: “Curse Of God”

His creation of humans?

Triumph Of Crazies

The nut cases who now dominate our Congress achieved a major goal– their bizarre actions have finally gotten through to Iranian leaders who have decided that rants and raves of Cruz, Rubio, Schumer, Boehner, and dozens of others from both parties are the voice of our government. Imagine if Iranian diplomats warned of reaching an agreement with the major powers and threatened to veto any action by President Rouhani? The outbreak of hysteria in America and Israel has now attained its goal. It has made difficult reaching an accord with the Iranian government. When Bibi Netanyahu threatens to attack Iran and is hailed as a great leader by dozens of American congressmen, what is the message being sent to Iran?

President Rouhani, who is under great pressure from his crazies, shifted his rhetoric. “If there is no end to sanctions, there will not be an agreement. The end of these negotiations and signed deal must include a declaration of canceling oppressive sanctions on the great nation of Iran. What the UUS Senate, Congress, and others say is not our problem. We want mutual respect. We are talking with the major powers, not with Congress.”

Rouhani is under pressure to stand up for Iranian needs, Congress makes it appear that Iran is caving into major powers. No Iranian leader could reach an agreement that came across as a surrender. So, what comes next? Have our congressmen considered the alternative to this agreement? WAR, SUICIDE BOMBERS, MISSILES FROM LEBANON, etc..

So, What Is New In America??

It is now apparent that our police forces are concerned about the fact that all too many dark skinned men seek to demand their right to breathe. Where did these men get the idea that the right to breathe is inout Constitution? I have carefully examined every word in this document without finding a single reference to the right to breathe. As a God fearing American, I believe that our police care about citizens, but this does not translate into ensuring that each and every American is breathing. I believe the Constitution is clear that if you want to breathe, go out in the fresh air and take a good breath.

Eric Garner was selling illegal cigarettes, a major violation of our laws and thus had to be wrestled to the ground by four cops, and all he could rant about was, “I can’t breathe.” An Oklahoma reserve cop who is 72 years old and works in insurance, shot a dark skinned man who ranted and raves, “I’m losing my breath.” Another cop said the obvious, “fuck your breath.” When did this nation get the idea that a function of the police was to check on how each person took a deep breathe?

We are becoming a nanny nation in which the police now have to monitor how people breathe. What next, help people shit and piss??
