Words Of Wisdom From The Chairman Of Truth

During the past decade of his life, President Vladimir Putin has not been contradicted by anyone, even when he was prime minister and his stooge, Medevedev was standing in for him as the president. He has known only flunkies who rush to nod their heads in agreement or laugh at his humor attempts or simply lick his boots when he points to them. Thus, the tradgedy of the Malaysian plane ic creating new problems for the Russian leader. Frankly, his flunkies made a blunder by shooting down a civilian plane carrying 298 people headed fro Malaysia. There simply is no way the chairman can brush off this tragedy by blaming “THE WEST” or the east or any nation in the world. This was a 100% Russian made blunder. So, the man who never apologizes, the man who always blames someone for his mistakes, is now compelled to hesitate, to seek compromise, and to avoid bluster and threats.

Puitin informed the world “we must do everything possible to provide seurity for the internationl experts on teh site of the tragedy. In the meantime, nobody should and has no right to use tthis tragedy to achieve their ‘narrowly selfish’ political goals.” I wonder if that applies to what US Secretary of State John Kerry was describing, ‘drunken separatist soldiers unceremoniously piloing bodies into trucks, removing both the bodies, as well as evidendce from the site.”

I have a hunch, the Chairman of Truth is ready to blast some sense into the separatist Ukrainians who made the Boss come across as incompetent.

It’s You, Not Us!

I was recently asked by the Republican National Committee to inform the American people as to the real story about Ukraine. Frankly, it is difficult to imagine that the Obama administration could conduct any aspect of foreign policy with a degree of intelligence. So, examine the situation in the Ukraine which currently is in chaos due to Barack Obama’s mishandling of policy. If you desire confirmation of this statement, please listen to what was told the world by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. He pointed out that Russia wanted to avoid any problems in Ukraine, but Barack Obama prevented peace in the region. According to this objective man, “our American colleagues still prefer to push the Ukraine leadership towards confrontational policies.” If not for American actions to stir up war, there would be peace and harmony between Russia, Ukraine and the European Union.

Once again, we have proof from a neutral nation that Barack Obama just fouls up over and over again. Russia has nothing to do with so-called separatists leaders in eastern Ukraine. I wish the Republican party would make clear in Congress that it is not the fault of Russia for the crisis. Once again, it is Obama, Obama, Hillary Clinton and Benghazi which has caused this conflict. At some future moment I will reveal the Benghazi connection to the Ukraine. Just take my word!

I await a Fox News commentator revealing that Hillary Clinton ordered Ukrainian separatists to blast the plane. Somehow, in some way, as far as Fox News is concerned, events in the Ukraine are simply another Benghazi!

Earth On Hot Streak

There are hot streaks in sport when a player just can’t fail to hit a home run or a team cannot lose a game. There are hot streaks in gambling when one simply continues hitting sevens with dice, roll after roll. There are hot streaks in life when a guy just continues meeting gorgeous gals who desire his body. There are hot streaks in politics when the economy booms, not thanks to you or peace reigns in the world, no thanks to you, and there are hot streaks in poker when I just can’t cease being dealt a royal flush. But, there are also hot streaks in this planet we call, Earth. New figures reveal that Mother Earth had a temperature average of 61.2 F, which means we wonderful Earthians have established a new high for hot temperature. This figure is 1.2 F over the 20th cemtury average!

Wow! If we Earthians can continue on this hot streak, who knows, maybe we can reach a point at which it is the end of all hot streaks? Perhaps, we can get so hot on our hot streak that folks on Venus might wish to hop over to our nice hot planet for a break from those Venusian hot winters? Perhaps, it is time to establish a World Cup for hot streaks? The nation that raises temperatures the highest is awarded with a huge cup filled with the hottest water known to humans?

Guns Of War In East May Boom Louder

There is something ironic that in July, 2014, an incident in eastern Europe has raised prospects of possible war since we are now recalling the summer of 1914 when a minor incident involving the death of an Austrian prince eventually unleashed a war that no one wanted, let alone thought that would occur. The Guns of August, 1914 became reality when foreign ministers of nations did not sit down and discuss peace, but allowed emotions to burst forth with the result that twenty million people died. There is no need for any conflict in Ukraine, it is simply a matter of creating a government which allows for decentralization of power to regions while maintaining major power in the central government. This would satisfy both so called, “separatists” and most Ukrainians. Someone fired a shell into Russia from the Ukraine and the result was death of ONE person! Sound familiar? Death of ONE person results in death of millions! Naturally, the Russian government blames the government of Ukraine for the shell although it is just as likely it was fired by separatists seeking to get Russia involved in the conflict!

The Russian government informed the government of Ukraine “the incident is evidence of a very dangerous escalation of tension in the Russian-UKrainian border and it could have irreversible consequences.” Just remember, these were the same words from the government of Austria-Hungary that resulted in World War I. There are never irreversible consequences–unless someone wants to begin a conflict!

Wither Germany??

I confess. There are times when one is completely shocked by the inept manner in which President Obama conducts foreign policy. How could any intelligent president of the United States of America wind up making our loyal friend and ally, Germany, into an enemy? Well, Barack pulled it off. Chancellor Angela Merkel is now furious. On her recent trip to Washington, the German leader proposed a “no spy arrangement” between the US and Germany in which neither would spy on the other. President Obama REFUSED TO ACCEPT THIS PROPOSAL! Huh? Instead, American spy agencies hired Germans working in German intelligence to spy for them. Just think of it, America was finally learning what its ally, Germany was thinking! There are reports that Merkel is reconsidering her nation’s foreign policy and might reach out to Russia! President Obama simply does not grasp that by embarrassing an ally, one makes it difficult for a German leader to remain popular with the people of Germany. Thomas Oppermann, head of the SPD which is a coalition member of the current government is shocked.

“If it is confirmed that spying activities against the BND(German Intelligence Agency) took place…it will be an unprecedented assault on the parliament and our democratic institutions.” Barack, everyones does not share your madness about National Security, particularly when you spy on your friends. Frankly, this entire episode makes NO sense! How did America reach the point where its friends no longer trust our nation??

Just A Matter Of Time

At this moment that I write there are about 200,000,000 people on this planet who reside in a country that was not their native land. In other words, there are hundreds of millions who fall into the category of being An IMMIGRANT. My parents fled eastern Europe after the end of World War I seeking a place of safety and refuge from war or poverty as well as the vicious anti-Semitism that prevailed in their native lands. As I write, there are at least two million people whose native land is in Syria, but have fled because of war or religious hatred or not particularly enjoying life in Assad Syria. The majority who have fled are Muslims, but there begins the problem–which type of Muslim? Shiite or Sunni or whoever? The overwhelming majority are now in a Muslim nation. Alas, that is where the problem begins. Muslim nations in the Middle East never cease complaining about the evils of Israel, but when it comes to welcoming their fellow Muslims, the end result is anger, discrimination and refusal to offer assistance. No Middle Eastern nation has allowed refugees from Israel-Palestine– to become citizens. So, why should Turks behave any different?

There are over a million Syrians in Turkey whose government has responded to the crisis with care and concern. But, to the average citizen, an immigrant is “not one of us.” Over a thousand people in the province of Kaharmanmares rioted against local Syrian refugees and chanted words of hate and violence. I live in America, the land which is 100% made up of immigrants. Which nation of the world surpasses us in expressions of hate toward immigrants? Turkish demonstrators said immigrants were –criminals– words that flow from Tea Party followers. To be an immigrant is not to be a person who will get a welcome wagon greeting.

Germany Disgusted With US

As I recall, many Americans were so delighted at the election of Barack Obama in 2008 since we believed once he became president many nations of the world who disliked George Bush policies would be more likely to respect the United States of America. At that point, even our closest allies in Europe were disgusted by the foreign policy of George Bush. So, along came Barack Obama, and five years later just about every European nation has lost respect for the United States and its insane spying policies. Every poll in Germany, which used to be our closest ally, reveals complete distrust for America. Revelations that US spy agencies hired Germans working in the German intelligent agency to spy for the US! Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has always prided herself on care and concern for her American ally, is now totally disgusted with the US. She told a German newscaster of her doubts that America either understands how its actions are infuriating Europeans or whether it has the slightest desire to make changes in European spy policies.

“I think it’s not that easy to convince Americans to completely change the way their intelligence works… It is not about how angry I was. For me, it is a sign that we have fundamental different concepts at the work of intelligence agencies.” I assume German Intelligence focuses on terrorist groups in the world, American Intelligence focuses on anyone and everyone on the assumption by the law of probability casting the wide net means you, at least, might catch a tiny fish.

Strangers In Their Own Land

As I recall, a long, long time ago, thousands of people from European nations such as Spain or Portugal or England decided to depart from Europe and head west toward some new lands. Of course, several thousand years before their arrival, a few thousand folks from Asia decided to head east and cross over into the new world that is now known as the Western Hemisphere. As I recall, there were no border patrols to halt them, to question their financial ability to reside in this hemisphere, and certainly no shouting and screaming Indians protesting the arrival of these strangers in THEIR LAND! Thousands of children and their families are fleeing from the horror that is Central America in which gangs of creatures beat, rape and kill for the joy of beating, raping and killing. Children are trapped in a horror that usually is presented in fictional movies. Their reality is not even being able to attend school without the fear of death of brutalization. So, they head north, hoping by some miracle they can be allowed to reside in some location that provides a modicum of peace and security, and, hopefully, work.

These are the people who pick our peaches, work in our meat plants, build our roads, pick up the garbage of our lives as well as caring for the children in our lives needed home care. These are simply decent hard working people who only desire to work, to work with their hands, to build, to construct,and to feel meaning as individuals. All they want is a chance. Protesters in south Texas are blocking highways because the Border Patrol is sending most of these people to facilities in San Diego. There is only ONE family detention center in this county! So, shout insults, demand your right to hate. Just check the 2nd Amendment, it says I can shoot anyone who I regards as a threat to my life.

Instead of blocking roads, how about offering your services as peach pickers?

New Terrorist Source–Germany!!

There is often a moment in time, when one grasps the madness of human life in all its confusing and contradictory patterns. Such is now with discovery by the German government that the ÇIA recruited an employee who worked in the German secret intelligence agency, BND. Stop for a moment and ask self: why is the United States of America using valuable resources to spy on our allies in the fight against terrorism? Why are American spies tapping phone calls of German Chancellor Angela Merkel who is our ALLY? Perhaps, I am dense, but would it not make more sense to tap phone calls of terrorists? In other words, American “Intelligence” devotes countless hours and millions of dollars spying on people who work with us to capture terrorists? Once again, another Obama example of incompetence. Several months ago, the German government learned of US spy efforts directed at Angela Merkel, and demanded an end. As of this moment in time, believe it or not, President Obama insists that he can NOT guarantee a cease fire in the war against our ally, GERMANY! Oh I forgot, NATIONAL SECURITY is the issue. In every case, NATIONAL SECURITY is the issue. Barack Obama is obsessed with NATIONAL SECURITY.

The German government is furious at US spy efforts in Germany. White House spokesperson, John Earnest, insists “we are trying to work with the Germans to resolve this situation appropriately.” He insists the American government can not interfere with “a pending German law enforcement investigation.” But, the US CREATED THE INVESTIGATION!! How about:

1. America forming a task force with BND to cooperatively work together?

2. How about making clear that ALL tapping ends of German officials. If Americans believe there are spies in Germany, simply inform, BND sources.

There is NATIONAL SECURITY and there is not National Security. When will Barack Obama conduct himself as a President who works with Allies, and does NOT spy on Allies!!!

Voice Of Putin Muted

Vladimir Putin is –or shall we say, was– a great hero to those in eastern areas of Ukraine who did not wish to become part of the new nation if it was to be led by those seeking closer ties with the west. A separatist groups emerged in eastern Ukraine which proclaimed its independence, welcomed members of the Russian military–dressed in civilian clothes, that is, and warned the Ukraine government not to step foot in their beloved land. During the past few months, there have been numerous clashes, many won by rebels who were armed by the Russian government, but despite the rhetoric of independence, it is now clear that most eastern Ukrainians prefer taking their destiny with the west rather than the east. Ukraine troops finally battered their way into rebel strongholds and have now gained control of Slaviansk and Kramaforisk. Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko announced: “The state flag of Ukraine is proudly waving over the city which militants thought was their impregnable fortress.”

A rebel leader, Denis Pushlin, expressed the feelings of many eastern militants. “What to say, nice words of Putin, about protecting Russians.” Rebels never understood that for Putin, the interests of his wealthy allies in Russia who were businessmen was always tops on his agenda. Sanctions hurt the wealthy, and when money is the subject, the hell with militants!!In the coming months separatists will soon learn that Putin wants to separate himself from them because to do so, hurts pocket books of wealthy Russians!
