Of Word-Jacking and the Birdflu President

It seems very likely that the next US president will encounter the BirdFlu Pandemic in America during the next four years.
 
Read on.
 
 
It is now almost certain that the US of A will sleep walk in to another nightmare lasting at least a further four years.

All because Bill Clinton “did not have sex with that woman”?

How does that take any thing away from one of the most successful women of our time?

What did she do?
 
I mean, other than not letting any event in her personal or public life bring her down.
 
what did she do?
 
I know. She is not black. That must be it.

So America elects another novice who is still waiiting for the President of Canada to speak to him.

Like Bush he will, I am told, have the best people to guide him.  

 

These “best people” will be guiding the new President through a most crucial time for the world.

 

At a time when China and Russia are rapidly moving in to a cold war posture, not to mention the problems in Iran in Pakistan (hope he will NOT bomb Pakistan) and in the caves in Afghanistan!

This is hardly the time to take chances.

I had recently written a post about WORD-JACKING by Bush and by Obama.

It has now been turned in to a video on the UTube by some one who apparently can also see through the all pervasive fog of National guilt and political opportunism.

Here it is:

 
Never thought that after the disasters of the last eight years, I would be supporting a Republican candidate for the post of the next president!

Barack Obama takes that “3 AM” Call (Electing Bird Flu President USA)

–                                         –                                                                            –
Many believe that in addition to all the domestic, economic and diplomatic disasters facing the next US President, there could well be an added disaster of the Bird Flu pandemic looming just over the horizon.
–                                                                  –                                                   –
So we have been taking a look at the candidates for the job of the President of America and the way we all feel about them during the election process.
–                                     –                                                       –                                                           
It was last week, when that dreaded 3AM (BIG PROBLEM) call came to the phone sitting on Barack Obama’s desk.
–                                      –                                                  –
The time of the call may not have been exactly 3 AM, but that is not the point here.
–                    –                                                                                  –                            –
Barack Obama was asked about a report that a senior official had given back-channel reassurances to Canada soft-pedaling Mr. Obama’s tough talk on Nafta.
–                              –                                             –
CTV, a Canadian television network, had reported that an Obama official had called the Canadian ambassador in Washington to play down the significance of Mr. Obama’s criticism of Nafta.
–                                    –                                                –                                           –
There was was a firm reaction from Obama, as befits a Commander-In-Chief-in-Waiting.
With his usual look of sincerity and absolute honesty, he denied that any such conversation had taken place.
–                  –                                      –                                                                    –
“It did not happen.” He said.
–      –                        –
When WKYC-TV in Ohio asked Mr. Obama about the CTV report, he said: “I don’t have to clarify it. The Canadian Embassy already clarified it by saying the story was not true. And our office has said the story was not. And so I think it’s important for viewers to understand that it was not true.” When pressed, he said, “It did not happen.”
–          –
Obama’s campaign mobilized as well to strongly refute the above mentioned report of any back-channel reassurances to Canada.
–                                                     –                                                                          –
“At no point did anyone in our campaign convey to anyone that there had been any backing away from Obama’s position on Nafta,” a campaign spokesman, Bill Burton, said Monday.
–       – 
                        
That is of course, how a strong Comander-In-Chief-in-Waiting and his campaign should act, immediately and decisively.
–                                     –                                      –                                        –
The only thing is, that the denials by Obama and his campaign were er… less than the truth.
–                                    –                                                –                                   –
On Monday,a memorandum surfaced, obtained by The Associated Press, showing that Austan D. Goolsbee, a professor of economics at the University of Chicago  who is Mr. Obama’s senior economic policy adviser, met officials last month at the Canadian consulate in Chicago.
–                          –                                   –                                                 –
According to the writer of the memorandum, Joseph De Mora, a political and economic affairs consular officer, Professor Goolsbee assured them that Mr. Obama’s protectionist stand on the trail was “more reflective of political maneuvering than policy.”
–                                    –                                      –
It also said the professor had assured the Canadians that Mr. Obama’s language “should be viewed as more about political positioning than a clear articulation of policy plans.”
–                         –                                                          – 
So that was how Senator Barack Obama, the Commander-In-Chief-in-Waiting responded to his first Big Problem “3 AM” call.

“OBAMA SPEAK” Electing Bird Flu President USA

Many believe that in addition to all the domestic, economic and diplomatic disasters facing the next US President, there could well be an added disaster of the Bird Flu pandemic looming just over the horizon.

–                                                                  –                                                   –

So we have been taking a look at the candidates for the job of the President of America and the way we all feel about them during the election process.

–                 –             –

One of the most interesting things to have come to light recently is the “Obama Speak” for lying to the nation, about his proclamations about NAFTA.

–                           –                     –

What did his man tell the Canadians?

–                   –                         –

“It is more politics than policy”

–            –                     –

Now that is what I call eloquent!

–              –                          –

Normally that would be OK. We all know how politicians are!

                                                                             

However, when some one like Obama, who has nothing else to show for but his “honesty”, shows him self to be less than honest, then it really, really hurts. 

US Government Pandemic Warning to US Citizens abroad

If the WHO declares a pandemic, Americans who are overseas should be prepared to remain in country for an extended period.
–                                                      –                                                                      –
You should avoid non-essential travel beyond your home and workplace and you should limit activities that could expose you to others who may be ill.
reat blog from the blogs section of –                                                                      –                                                              –
Based on varying conditions abroad, Americans should prepare contingency plans and emergency supplies (non-perishable food, potable water or water-purification supplies, medication, etc.) for the possibility of remaining in country for at least two and up to twelve weeks.

During a pandemic, people should practice social distancing measures such as teleworking, limiting face-to-face meetings, avoiding crowds, and maintaining a distance of six (6) feet or more from other people.
–                              –
“whoever wrote this has never been to China. Probably only in Tibet, Xinjiang, or Inner Mongolia could one possibly get more than 6 feet away from another human being…

Of Sunni, Shia, black Americans & US Election08 (Electing BirdFlu President Part 2)

The Sunnis of Iraq will only vote for a Sunny candidate.
–                                                                     –
Not because of proven ability. Just because he is a Sunny.
–                                                                      –
The Shia of Iraq will vote only for a Shia candidate.
–                                                    –
Not because of proven ability. Just because he is a Shia.
–                                                               –
The black Americans will only vote for the black candidate.
–                                                                         –
Not because of proven ability. Just because he is black.
–                                                          –
The election08 has uncovered the real racial divide that exists in America.
–                                                                            –
So how would this effect America and the rest of the world over the next four or even eight years?
–                                                                                  –
Well, let us look back to the election in the year 2000.  
–                                               –
When good old W was elected for the first time, every one in the entire world was flabbergasted, that a person with no experience with the nations of the world, who had given in to drugs and alcohol in his “week moments”, (but he was now born again and so was all better) was elected in to the most powerful job in the world.
–                                                                                                –
It was said W would have the best advisers in the world, so he did not really have to have any experience of his own.
–                                                                                                –
And more importantly, he said that he was a “uniter” and not a divider.
–                                                                                  –
The Americans swallowed it all.
–                               –
As a result there is conflict every where you look and millions around the world have paid with their lives.
–                                                                                            –
The USA is more divided than it has ever been in recent history.
–                                                      –
So did we learn a lesson?  
–                        –
Oh no, not Americans.
–                     –
Now we want to elect another “UNITER” who will have the best advisers and so it does not matter that he has no real experience of global politics (or even much of local politics).
–                                                                                                           –                             
Surely no one can pull the same stunt again?
–                                               –
Oh yes he can!
–             –
The only problem is that this time the stakes are much higher than they were back in 2000 or even in 2004.
–                                                                                              –
There is a global war, world wide crash of the Dolloar, credit crunch, National health care disaster, BirdFlu and a lot more.
–                                                                                                      –
This is a time for effective action and not fire side discussions, in a smoking jacket and a pipe, making thoughtfull comments on things can be.
–                                                                                                       –
So will the Americans wake up to the crisis facing us all?
–                                                     –
Well, Americans have an amazing talent for self destruction.
–                                                              –
So, here is what is likely to happen.
–                                   –
The I-so-want-to believe lot in the Democratic party will try and purge their collective guilt of life long prejudice (kept totally repressed in the subconscious) by voting for a man just because he is black!
–                     –
The black Americans will vote for the black candidate, not because he has proven abilities in face of real problems and crisis, but just because he is black.
–                               –
The republicans will NOT do that.
–                              –
A large number of the Democrats will also NOT vote for the black candidate.
–                                                                        –
That is because there is a real racial Divide in America.
–                                                     –
I know that hurts, but that is the truth. (we are on our way to a color blind, no prejudices society, but we are not there yet.)
–                                                                                                            –
So as a result the Republicans will be back in power again, this time apparently  with an agenda to be in Iraq for a hundred years!
–                                                                                       –
And there will be no one to blame for all this will there?
