Another New Year brings another unwanted Republican president

                                                Enough already!

As we prepare to bring in 2017 I want to remind you what I said about Bush's damage because what did not come true yet sadly is happening right now around the world.
 
The first Decade of the 21st century was dominated by alcoholic and life long loser George w Bush and his damage to the US and the worlds order. Every year under his misleader ship got worse and worse. Sadly his damage will be felt for decades and generations to come. He started in 2000 with a stolen election, he allowed 9/11 to happen, and he followed that with the hell of a mess he made out of Katrina. He illegally attacked Iraq, and did his damnedest to instigate more war around the world.

After Bush's destruction anything to look forward to would be from President Obama undoing Bush's damage but Republicans are doing their damnedest to make sure he fails us and the country so they can get back in and get Bush's elitist agenda back on track. Anyway It is New Years Eve and I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

After Bush got reelected in 2004 he announced that the election was a mandate, oh yeah! He said he had earned Political Capital and he was going to spend it,remember? many of us believed he was politically bankrupt even then. He had no Political Capital to spend. He had been since day one working on making us morally and financially bankrupt but I'll leave that alone today as I promised to be nice.

Every New Years Eve we have had a feeling of dread facing the upcoming year! On 12/31/05 I noted We're in trouble, Bush Promises to make 2006 as bad as 2005!! I said Today is New Years Eve and we just heard the Presidents weekly radio address. It was his last hurrah for 2005 and he was talking about how he wants to continue his abuse of the past through 2006. This had to really scare you the average American. Bush was a nightmare and he flew into the sunset proud of his societal and world destruction.

President Bush vowed to continue what to you and I as average Americans witnessed and experienced as the continued destruction of society and the country as we like to remember it. He still thinks we are the envy of the world. This is still partially true but only because a large part of the world is still behind us in their progression. Due to his insistence on continued tax cuts for the wealthy. His continued destruction of the lower classes, his continuing outsourcing of his Karl Rove’s taught 3D politics (deceitful, deceptive, divisive, politics) contributing to world disorder he is continuing to erode this envy as we moved into 2006.

New Years Eve 12/31/06 I noted Bush promised to make 2007 more deadlier than 2006 for American's and Iraqi's! He certainly did just that. I woke one morning to hear the 3,000th American had been killed in Iraq that number is now 4370. I reiterated that this Bush created Iraqi breakdown will spread throughout the middle east, being a total war between Shiite and Sunni as you can see it developing still

Thanks to President Obama's election in 2008 2009 dawned with renewed hope but the decade of Bush's destruction was still playing out and will be for many years. Millions have lost their jobs, homes, and health insurance. We saw massive bailouts for our capitalist system. Capitalism was bailed out so we still have hope. Now for us! More than a year into President Obama's Presidency we had not seen any accomplishments.

That said New Year 2010 arrived: Our troops are scheduled to depart Iraq in 2011, foreclosures have slowed down, Job losses have slowed drastically, the economy of the wealthy is recovering and ours looks to be showing positive signs of improvement so we have hope. We watch the mess in Iran, our and the worlds financial mess hopefully improving and we have hope for 2010. Again we were wrong, our hope misguided.

2011 sees the middle east just beginning to explode and not just Syria, Iran, and the Arab spring countries as our troops just came home at least for now.We would do well to remember the History of what an Arab spring often brings, "WAR" The entire world is unstable as never before in my lifetime.

With a house divided and nothing period being done for the United States or its average citizens, the too real prospect of more impending "wars", and the people's and countries situations worsening in every respect around the world, I ask you what does New Year 2017 mean to you? What do you think? How do you feel?

Electoral College confusion;

                                                   


 Today the College votes for president. Knowing we already voted and Hillary won by almost 3 million votes but Trump was declared the winner by the electoral College I was again confused.

I thought they were representatives or the two political parties but they are not. I noticed Republicans have the edge in number and figured Trump was right the system is rigged.

 It seems to be but it is not that simple.

Our forefathers seem to have gotten it right again though I disagreed the last 2 times they held sway. The whole system and why they did it was and still is very confusing so I was lucky enough after some pretty extensive digging to find the following link that I found very informative.


The Electoral College is a group of people that elects the president and the vice president of the United States. (The word “college” in this case simply refers to an organized body of people engaged in a common task.)
As voters head to the polls on Tuesday, they will not vote for the presidential candidates directly, in a popular vote. Instead, they will vote to elect specific people, known as “electors” to the college. Each state gets a certain number of electoral votes based on its population.

The electors are appointed by the political parties in each state, so if you vote for Donald J. Trump on Tuesday, and Mr. Trump ends up winning the popular vote in your state, then electors that the Republican Party has chosen will cast votes for him in their state capitals in December.

I for one am no longer calling for an end to the electoral college. Take a quick read and tell me what you think.
On Election Day, we’re electing the electors who elect the president. And it takes 270 of the 538 electors to win. Got it?

The United States of Disarray;

                                           Forever Vigilant!

   Looking at today's unwinding horrors we will be facing long into the future. We watch Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Russia, China and Taiwan, North and South Korea, water pollution, air pollution, global warming, water wars, food wars, numerous future wars in the making, under Bush's war mongering I had been long convinced we had not had the defining moment of our time, our moment of extreme challenge.

    9/11 was not the defining moment of our time as we are told,that event has not occurred yet but that moment is coming and soon and it could very well be upon us. A lot of people tell me to get over Bush but the US and the world will never be able to as he upset US and world balance that will forever affect us all.


   We had the hope of Obama for 8 years but thanks to the Republican vow to make everything he tried to do to better the plight of the people fail our economy has improved and health care for all was implemented but Republicans because of their negative input constantly reminded us the the improvement was the slowest in history "their fault" and they plan on eliminating Health care for all.


   In steps the nightmare Donald Trump. Many of us were very concerned about Trump as soon as we knew he was going to run for President because he has a penchant for being loud arrogant ignorant and a flagrant liar saying whatever he wants to get his way. Most of what he says is a flat out lie but he does not care doubling down and making the lie even deeper. His childish antics and ignorance is something new to me.

      From what I can see the electoral college is only kept to steal an election for the Republican party. The people as a whole know the Democrats have faults but are there to make their lives better.

   Back in 2000 I thought the Republicans were done as a Political Party when they picked the Alcoholic worthless liar George Bush to be their leader. I was greatly dismayed with that stupid hanging chad crap and the Supreme court ultimately picking him as the next President of the united States. He was re-elected by the outdated Electoral College over Al Gore who the people had selected. You witnessed as did I Bush's illegal war in Iraq and his destruction of the US.

   Now the electoral College has interfered once more over-road the will of the people and chose Trump to lead the nation to destruction and destroying Obama's legacy along with FDR's and every positive step ever taken ti further the American people.

   Trump  has not even been sworn in yet and not only is Putin being credited with hacking the DNC flooding the air waves with lies about Hillary but he swears he likes the murderer Putin and he has already earned the Ire of China which is not hard to do but I am very concerned with this fool Trump's penchant to act without thinking and failing to engage brain before opening mouth.

   Now we also hear his sons are sitting beside him when ever he meets with world leaders. I for on think they are so they can keep an eye on Trump. Plus his daughter Ivanka we hear is going to be the first Lady as Trump's wife does not want to be, and it costs a million dollars a day for their security but I bet it is more like 10 million and they aren't worth a dime.

    We as a people, country, and world are in serious trouble as we proceed through the 21st century or so we hope.

* I am very concerned as to what the future has in store for us unless something Drastic happens to upset the cart our politicians have set for Republicans and their mis-leadership of us, the US, and the world.

Israel does not want peace: No kidding

  Israel does not want peace:  Rejectionism is embedded in Israel's most primal beliefs. There, at the deepest level, lies the concept that this land is destined for the Jews alone. Israel does not want peace. There is nothing I have ever written that I would be happier to be proved wrong about. But the evidence is piling up. In fact, it can be said that Israel has never wanted peace

 – a just peace, that is, one based on a just compromise for both sides. It’s true that the routine greeting in Hebrew is Shalom (peace) – shalom when one leaves and shalom when one arrives. And, at the drop of a hat, almost every Israeli will say he wants peace, of course he does. But he’s not referring to the kind of peace that will bring about the justice without which there is no peace and there will be no peace. Israelis want peace, not justice



As peace talks falter, Israel’s intentions become clearer: 2 State Failure

Pakistan reiterates NWA offensive will hit Haqqani network: Good get Jalaluddin

Jalaluddin Haqqanni
                         

They are going down finally: Tuesday, May 13, 2014


Afghans kill at least 60 from Haqqani network in major hit before America leaves Afghanistan



                    Economic Times


 
           Jalaluddin Haqqanni


Haqqani leadership is now going down: Now I see success









  Senior Haqqani leader shot dead in Islamabad: The commander, Ahsanullah Ahsan, and the intelligence official say that Nasiruddin Haqqani was killed Sunday night on the outskirts of Pakistan's capital in area called Bhara Kahu.
The Afghan Haqqani network was founded by Jalaluddin Haqqani and is one of the most feared militant groups fighting U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Nasiruddin Haqqani is Jalaluddin Haqqani's son. His brother, Sirajuddin Haqqani, currently leads the group.

 Nasiruddin Haqqani shot dead:  The details of his death are still unclear, but reports say he was killed in a shooting incident in the city of Rawalpindi, next to Islamabad, on Sunday night.Another Haqqani brother, Badruddin, who had been the group's operational commander, was killed in a drone strike in August last year.
Nasiruddin's elder brother, Sirajuddin Haqqani, now leads the group, while Jalaluddin remains its figurehead. As the group's main fundraiser, Nasiruddin frequently travelled to the oil-rich sheikhdoms of the Middle East to solicit donations.


 *U.S. Drone Strike in Pakistan Kills at Least 16: The strike was the deadliest since Pakistan’s new prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, took power a month ago and demanded an end to the drone attacks. A local government official said the house was being used by the militants for the past few months. 





Jalaluddin Haqqani legendary leader who fought the Soviets and his son, Sirajuddin hate the fact that infidel's are on their land and of course have openly vowed to attack and kill as many as possible until we leave. They have been the ones behind all the attacks on bases ans government buildings and have admitted it. 

It is only common sense that they are behind the continuing  spate of attacks on NATO trainers by so called rogue Afghani's. We have essentially brought all segments against us leaving peacefully and forming a Government to their knees with the exception of the Haqqani's who have lost many fighters and top commanders including recently Badruddin another son of Jalaluddin.







This is not enough though. In order to stop the Haqqani network we are going to have to take out the top. We know some in the ISI, military, and Government have been complicit with them since the Soviets wee in Afghanistan so they know where they are. I hope now we have taken out the top.


Listen to this article. Powered by Odiogo.com
Haqqani 101: With the death of Osama Bin Laden we were asked what his death would mean for the war in Afghanistan. Like the so called war on terror which includes the Taliban, Al Qaeda of every creed, and extremists of every ilk looking to carry on Osama's vendetta against the west, it will serve to fuel their cause like many other issues. His death should mean just the opposite and it does to all true Muslims.

In searching though I found them to be known rapists and murderers and of course not true Muslims or faithful followers of Muhammad and true Islam. Some of the Haqqani's and commanders have even been captured and held after traveling to Saudi Arabia for the haj and gathering donations for their cause.

The Haqqani's and their legendary stature are holding the so called terrorists force together. Their stature is legendary and hard earned. The Haqqani network and their increasingly foreign fighters have become the main focus after 9 years of fighting. The Haqqani Network's North Waziristan leadership -- usually called the Miram Shah Shura consists of a number of Haqqani family members and closely associated long-serving commanders.

At the top of the network is Sirajuddin Haqqani, who oversees the group's political and military activities and is the main liaison to the Mullah Muhammad Omar led Quetta Shura Taliban, the Taliban's leadership body (named for the capital of Pakistan's Baluchistan province). He is also one of the network's liaisons to Pakistani Taliban figures and AL-Qaeda.

He travels regularly into Afghanistan " or should I say did as he now claims to be based in Afghanistan" to coordinate with field commanders and occasionally to Peshawar and South Waziristan to connect with militants there. Remember Bowe Bergdhal? There are many field commanders in Afghanistan, but turnover is high because many get killed or captured. The most prominent is Mullah Sangin, who is believed to be holding Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl a captured U.S. soldier and Zakim Shah the movement's shadow governor of Khost province.

There are many field commanders in Afghanistan, but turnover is high because many get killed or captured.

Jalaluddin Haqqani legendary leader who fought the Soviets and his son, Sirajuddin who directs operations are increasingly the targets of drones and now manned NATO aircraft in Pakistan as the Pakistani's have been leery to go in the area for whatever reason. Many are being killed, I heard over 80 in a week with no civilian casualties.

I wish we would quickly kill the two head Haqqani's, both Jalaluddin and Sirajuddin and leave the rest to Pakistan as our invasion of their country even to kill Taliban and Al Qaeda fighters who were known killers of NATO forces may be the straw that broke the camels back. People in Pakistan are increasingly marching to have the drone attacks stopped. Fine! If you want the drones stopped then stop the Haqqani's. We know someone there can kill or stop them at will.

I would hate to see the Haqqani network unite with Pakistan " who they once had close ties with particularly the ISI", against us as Pakistan is still furious and rightly so though it may be a ploy to placate civilians. I wish we would just come home. I do not want to see the scenario I discussed many times and that is taking on Pakistan from the Gulf and don't forget Iran!

Anyway you look at it we are viewed as temporary and the violent convoluted backstabbing tribal relationships will always be a way of life in the border area especially. We can only be very concerned how this is going to turn out between NATO, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. It won't be translucent or good!

The Haqqani's seem true to Mullah Omar who wants us out of Afghanistan and want their independent Afghanistan. Pakistan has proven they do not want a free and independent Afghanistan but want to control it. At this point I want to say our soldiers have done their job let them come home as scheduled if not sooner. Let Mullah Omar the Haqqani's and other Taliban interests fight for Afghanistan it is theirs not ours or Pakistan's. Good luck Hamid Karzai that's all I say!
