New Romney Video “These Hands Ohio” Stays On Obama’s “You Didn’t Build That”

Ohio

Over two weeks has gone by since Obama angered millions of Americans and business owners with his "you didn't build that" speech while campaigning in Virginia and Romney is not taking his foot off the gas on that reveal.  Good for Team Romney!  As I had predicted here on this blog the day Obama uttered those words, that lapse of off teleprompter honesty is paramount into seeing the true Obama ideology and is a winner therefore Romney should run it and Obama into the ground. The latest Romney web video features an Ohio business owner livid over Obama's sentiments that government is the reason behind his business staying afloat. … [Read more...]

U.S. Backed Afghan Transportation Funding Funneled To Taliban

Taliban

The United States is spending more than $2 billion for a trucking contract used to help rebuild Afghanistan, and millions of dollars from that contract are being funneled to the Taliban. A Pentagon investigation completed in May revealed that a portion of the $2.16 billion transportation contract is funding a direct enemy of the U.S. According to a Washington Post article, one $7.4 million payment went to eight companies, through contractors, subcontractors and eventually to the account of an Afghan National Police commander. The Pentagon reportedly found that $3.3 million of the original $7.4 million had been transferred to Taliban insurgents in cash, weapons and … [Read more...]

Radical Iranian Military Faction, Hezbollah, Now Confirmed To Have Set Up Shop In Mexico

hezbollah

A Tucson Police Department memo has been leaked onto the Internet, and it warns that Hezbollah, a radical military arm of Iran, has set up shop in Mexico. The terrorist group has linked up with the Mexican drug lords, and is even said to have a large arms stockpile in the country. Terrorist groups are looking at the raging drug war in Mexico as an opportunity to further their deadly ambitions as they have exactly what the Mexican drug lords need, endless supply of opium from Afghanistan, and in return they are being allowed to co-exist in the porous boarder region of the United States and Mexico. The memo recalls that a member of Hezbollah was arrested in Tijuana in July 2010 who was … [Read more...]

Moody’s Reduces Ireland To Junk Status, U.S. Stocks Continue To Fall

ireland euro

Moody’s cut Ireland’s bonds to junk status on Tuesday and warned of further downgrades as the euro zone economy struggles to pull out of a financial crisis. Moody’s said it had reduced Ireland’s government debt ratings by one notch, to Ba1 from Baa3, saying there was a ‘growing possibility’ that the country would need more bail-out aid in late 2013. Last week, Moody’s lowered Portugal’s debt rating to junk status, sparking fierce criticism from EU leaders and calls for a ban on rating agency decisions for countries under internationally approved rescue packages, and Greece continues to try and avoid default on its debtors through unpopular austerity measures.  When you … [Read more...]

U.S. Puts On Hold $800M In Military Aid To Pakistan

Pakistan aid withheld

The U.S. is withholding some $800 million in military assistance to Pakistan in a show of displeasure over its cutback on American trainers, limits on visas for personnel and other bilateral irritants, the Obama administration said today. Pakistani authorities have “taken some steps that have given us reason to pause on some of the aid which we’re giving to the military”, White House Chief of Staff William Daley said on ABC television’s This Week with Christiane Amanpour.  As a result, “we’ll hold back some of the money that the American taxpayers have committed to give”, he said, adding this amounted to about $800 million, or more than a third of the $2 billion … [Read more...]

Moody’s Downgrades Portugal’s Credit Rating, Euro Zone Further Damaged

Portugal Flag

Moody's downgraded Portugal's debt rating on Tuesday to "junk status" as the rating agency believes there is an increased risk that Portugal could default on payment to its bond holders. This further ignites those worried that trouble in the euro zone is deep and contagious. This caused the debt-laden Iberian country to follow Greece into junk territory below investment grade. Portugal in April became the third euro zone country to request a bailout, after Greece and Ireland. "There was a growing risk that Portugal will require a second round of official financing before it can return to the private market, Moody's said, and the increasing possibility that private sector creditor … [Read more...]

Greeks Protest Austerity Measures As Public Officials Plan Vote

greek riots

What happens to a socialist country when its social safety net falls apart?  Greece is on the brink of ruin, and the Greek socialists who support cradle to grave entitlements took to the streets again on Tuesday.  Massive protests against tax hikes and budget cuts exploded into violence in the Greek capital of Athens, a city that was under a cloud of tear gas as a public vote was under way aimed at preventing a financial meltdown of the country where democracy actually began. Raw Footage Of Greek Riots   If Greece were to default on its obligations, the euro zone would surely be majorly affected, but there would be a ripple affect on the United States as well.  The … [Read more...]

House Rejects War In Libya, Obama’s Week Gets Worse

Stop War

Members of Congress,  first led by Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) in a lawsuit seeking an injunction from federal court on Obama's military force in Libya, sent an uncomfortable message to the administration by voting to reject a formal authorization of the use of force in Libya.  The House on Friday, with bipartisan support, voted down a resolution similar to one recently passed in the Senate expressing support for the U.S. mission by a vote 123 to 295.  The Associated Press reported that the vote is the first time since 1999 that Congress has voted against a president’s authority to conduct a military operation, "challenging presidential power", a measure that has to be an embarrassment … [Read more...]

Obama Gives Prime Time Speech On Afghanistan, Was It Intended To Distract From His Libyan War Problem?

Obama East Room Speech

President Obama announced from the East room of the White House Wednesday that 10,000 troops will be withdrawn from Afghanistan by the end of 2011, and the remaining 33,000 surge troops will be withdrawn by September 2012, leaving 70,000 troops in Afghanistan.  President Obama said by 2014 the Afghan draw down will be complete. The war in Afghanistan alone costs U.S. taxpayer $2.5 billion per week or $10 billion per month. Obama aides tweeted that poor public opinion did not weigh in on his decision to draw down the longest war in American history. So, is the tide of war really ending like the President said in his speech Wednesday night or was this another clever distraction from the … [Read more...]

McCain Continues Isolationist Rant Slamming Senator Manchin On Senate Floor

John McCain

Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) calls on the Senate floor yesterday for a “significant reduction” of troops in Afghanistan drew a vehement disapproval, and some would say rude slap down from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who said the freshman senator’s statements “characterize the isolationist withdrawal, lack of knowledge of history attitude that seems to be on the rise of America.” McCain went on to say Manchin "should learn history". One would have to go back a very long time in history to find a U.S. Senator playing such a pivotal role in The United States' foreign policy on war and correlating that position with the radical discourse John McCain is proposing with regard to troop … [Read more...]
