[NYT] “WASHINGTON — President Obama sharply criticized the decision by his F.B.I.  Director to alert Congress on Friday about the discovery of new emails related to the Hillary Clinton server case, implying that it violated investigative guidelines and trafficked in innuendo.

 

“We don’t operate on incomplete information,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with NowThis News, broadcast Wednesday. “We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”

 

“When this was investigated thoroughly the last time, the conclusion of the F.B.I., the conclusion of the Justice Department, the conclusion of repeated congressional investigations was that she had made some mistakes but that there wasn’t anything there that was prosecutable,” Mr. Obama said.”

 

Support And Vote Hillary Clinton For President And Elect A Democratic Controlled Congress.

 

“No Complacency Please, You Must Go Out And Vote.

 

”Hillary Clinton Is Going To Win The Presidency, But The Margin With Which She Wins And A Democratic Controlled Congress Will Enable President Hillary Clinton To Implement Polices And Confirm Experienced Cabinet Members To Keep America Moving Forward.”

 

Hillary Clinton will continue President Obama’s Legacy and Policies and build on Obama’s Achievements.

Donald Trump Will Never Be President But He Peeled The Racist Scab Off Republicans, Some In The Media And Has Literally Embarrassed America And Damaged America’s Most Powerful Weapon – DEMOCRACY, By Falsely Claiming That America’s Election Is Rigged!

Republicans, The Media And Just About Any Sane Person Always Knew That Donald Trump Was, Is And Always Will Be, A Hard-Core Racist, Bigoted, Fascist, Misogynist, Bankruptcy Swindler, Con Man And Perhaps The Worst Of America, And Yet The GOP Nominated Donald Trump To Be President.

 

The Irony is mind-boggling! For Decades Republicans have been crying foul over fabricated Voter Fraud and now that their Nominee, Con Man Trump has stuck it in their Faces, somehow, they can’t seem to run away fast enough from this Low-Life-Disgusting-Man – Donald Trump. [A Bipartisan Study Of One Billion Votes Showed 31 Cases Of Voter Fraud – FACT]

[Los Angeles Times] “Donald Trump is the most ableist presidential nominee in modern American political history.

 

Trying to stay on top of Trump’s outrages is exhausting. The 2005 tape of him linking his fame to consequence-free sexual assault overshadowed his racist comments about the guilt of the Central Park 5. At the debate, he threatened to jail Hillary Clinton, so we had to talk about his fascistic tendencies — before returning to his abhorrent behavior toward women. Now that he released an ad mocking he’s Clinton for her alleged physical ailments, it’s time to talk about his ableism.

 

Ableism, the individual or systematic discrimination against and stigmatization of people with disabilities or people perceived to have disabilities, is still an unfamiliar concept to many Americans — some of whom aren’t even willing to admit that racism or sexism are real. Ableists convey the message that disabled people are not full members of our society, leading to exclusion and even abuse. Trump is fully complicit in sending precisely that message.

 

Trump is using invented illnesses to try and portray Clinton as not fit to lead.

 

Here are just a few examples. Trump has fixated on Clinton’s health for months now, but it’s gotten worse. At a recent rally, he pretended to wobble and then faint in front of a laughing crowd. He routinely questions her stamina (a thinly veiled code for health) and he and his surrogates promote conspiracy theories that Clinton has conditions including strokes, Parkinson’s and epilepsy. While it’s not necessarily ableist to want to know about a candidate’s health, Trump is using invented illnesses to try and portray Clinton as not fit to lead.

 

Fat-shaming is another kind of ableism, and Trump especially likes to mock women he deems overweight, such as Alicia Machado (the former Miss Universe) and Rosie O’Donnell. He has also made fun of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s weight. 

 

Bizarrely, Trump’s supporters have lately been using the candidate’s routine ableism as a defense against accusations that he mocked a disabled New York Times reporter last November. Supporters are arguing that Trump wasn’t specifically insulting the reporter, but that he routinely uses spastic arm motions — what Ann Coulter calls “standard retard” — to make fun of people.”

 

Save America By Supporting And Voting Hillary Clinton For President and Vote To Elect A Democratic Controlled House And Senate Congress.

Every day Hillary Clinton proposes realistic proposals in Factual Policies to help America, the American People and the World, that would make better lives and better tomorrows for all.

aaliphotos-197

Every day Donald Trump and Sons insult, denigrate and permeate so many lies that not even the Fact Checkers can keep up with. It is vividly clear that the only knowledge Donald Trump possess is being a professional Con Man, Conning People and Wrecking lives with his Bigotry, Fascism, Racism, Misogyny and concocted internecine fantasies.

 

Today, September 21, 2016 we are only 48 days away of making the biggest decision for America and the world. Do we want to continue the Progress President Obama and his Administration have achieved over the past 8 years?

 

Or, do we want to go backwards into a world that would be far worse than what George W Bush, Dick Cheney, their Administration and the Republican Congress gave us from 2001-2008?

 

There are no nexuses between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Secretary Clinton has spent her entire life fighting for others and Con Man Trump has spent his adult life robbing and stealing, promoting racism and division, to enhance his pocket of more Mammon from larceny.

 

The choice is clear and for those that claim that there are no distinctions between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, you really need to reverse the Stockholm Syndrome that have imbedded you.

 

Support and Vote Hillary Clinton for President and give President Hillary Clinton a Democratic Controlled House and Senate.

Americans Empathy For The Family Of US Soldier Captain Khan Killed In Iraq; Is Self Evident That America’s CORE DECENCY IS ALIVE!

[NYT] Six minutes and one second. That was all it took for the 66 years of Khizr Khan’s life to become an American moment.

 

“Donald Trump, What Have You Given? Nothing! No One!” [Khizr Khan Father of Captain Khan]

 

[SGA] “The Respect given to US Soldier Captain Khan’s family is our assurance that Donald Trump’s “Bigotry, Fascism, Racism, Hate And Lies”, shall never succeed in America. The 13 Million people that voted Trump in the Primary that enabled him to become the Republican Nominee, those seeds were sown decades ago by the GOP and are now being harvested in the person of Vermin Donald Trump”.

 

[NYT] It was not something that he could have anticipated. For years, he and his wife, Ghazala, had lived a rather quiet existence of common obscurity in Charlottesville, Va. He was known in circles that dealt with electronic discovery in legal proceedings. Another overlapping sphere was the rotating cast of cadets that passed through the Army R.O.T.C. program at the University of Virginia. His wife was a welcoming face to the customers of a local fabric store.

 

And the last dozen years for the Khans were darkened by their heartbreak over the death of a military son, Humayun, whose body lies in Arlington National Cemetery, his tombstone adorned with an Islamic crescent. Their grief brought them closer to a university and to a young woman in Germany whom their son loved. It also gave them a conviction and expanded the borders of their lives.

 

Some of their neighbors knew Mr. Khan liked to carry a $1 pocket Constitution around with him. In the Khan home, a stack of them always lay at the ready. Guests showed up and they were handed one, in the way other hosts might distribute a party favor. Mr. Khan wanted it to stimulate a conversation about liberty, a cherished topic of his. He liked to point out that he lives nearly in the shadow of Monticello, home of one of his heroes, Thomas Jefferson. Mrs. Khan liked to say, “We need Thomas Jefferson.”

 

And then the Khans stepped into a sports arena in Philadelphia and left as household names. In a passionate speech at the Democratic National Convention, the bespectacled Mr. Khan stingingly criticized Donald J. Trump and his stance on Muslim immigration, scolding him, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.” Quickly enough, both Khans felt the verbal lashings of Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential candidate.

 

And just like that, they found themselves a pivot point in the twisting drama that is American politics.

“Republicans Insanity Would Be On Display Beginning Monday July 18th Under One Roof Labeled RNC Convention.”

 

 

As the Politics reaches fever pitch remember just how much Republicans are very much alike when it comes to the Insanity of the Jihadists.

 

 

The Jihadists are big on the Quran and Guns!

 

 

Republicans are big on the Bible and Guns!

 

 

The Jihadists carries out heinous crimes against innocent people!

 

 

Republicans ignore that 93 Americans of all races are killed every day right here in America by some form of Gun Violence, yet, Republicans accept Blood Money from the NRA and defend the 2nd Amendment by profound misuse of what the Founding Fathers intended.

 

 

Jihadists accept Money from Despots and defend their insanity by misuse of Islam.

 

 13707768_260181394365596_6575354037981377769_n

This November, we must Elect Hillary Clinton as President and remove Republicans from Leading the Senate and House of Representatives and as many Governors’ Mansions.

 

 

Hillary Clinton as President with a Democratic Controlled Senate and House can and will implement sensible Laws not to take away the rights of people to own Guns, but stop as many as possible unqualified people from owning Guns.

 

 

 

President Obama has rescued America from the Disasters of George W Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republican Congress and set us on a path forward, and, Hillary Clinton will continue President Obama’s Legacy, Policies and build on Obama’s Achievements that would inure benefits to all Americans and people of Goodwill around the World.

 

 

Give Hillary Clinton your support. Unite And Vote Blue For An Even Greater America.

“Let Him kiss me with the kiss of His mouth!” Songs of Solomon 1:2 [HAPPY EASTER]

The month of April is said to derive its name from the Latin verb aperio, which signifies to open, because all of the buds of blossoms are now opening, and we have arrived at the gates of the flowery year.

 

In beginning a new month, let us seek the same desires after our Lord as those which glowed in the heart of the elect spouse. See how she leaps at once to Him; there are no prefatory words; she does not even mention His name; she is in the heart of her theme at once, for she speaks of Him who was the only Him in the world to her.

 

How bold is her love! It was much condescension which permitted the weeping penitent to anoint His feet with spikenard – it was rich love which allowed the gentle Mary to sit at His feet and learn of Him – but here, love, strong, fervent love, aspires to higher tokens of regard, and closer signs of fellowship.

 

Esther trembled in the presence of Ahasuerus, but the spouse of joyful liberty of perfect love knows no fear. If we have received the same free spirit, we also may ask the like. By kisses we suppose to be intended those varied manifestations of affection by which the believer is made to enjoy the love of Jesus.

 

The kiss of reconciliation we enjoyed at our conversion; and it was sweet as honey dropping from the comb. The kiss of acceptance is still warm on our brow, and we know that He hath accepted our persons and our works through rich grace. The kiss of daily, communion; is that which we pant after to be repeated day after day, till it is changed into the kiss of reception, which removes the soul from earth, and the kiss of consummation which fills it with the joy of heaven.

 

Faith is the road, but communion with Jesus is the well from which the pilgrim drinks. O lover of our souls, be not strange to us; let the limps of Thy blessing meet the lips of our asking; let the lips of Thy fullness touch the lips of our need, and straightway the kiss will be effectuated.

Frederick Douglass gave us the answer on September 25 1883, as to why Republican Legislators are so unrelenting on President Obama!

“Though the colored man is no longer subject to barter and sale, he is surrounded by an adverse settlement which fetters all his movements. In his downward course he meets with no resistance, but his course upward is resented and resisted at every step of his progress.

             

If he comes in ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character, and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a gentleman, a scholar and a statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence.” [Frederick Douglass, September 25 1883]

 

HE STILL STANDS TALL!

 

And he still stands tall…God’s grace and peace upon this man is my prayer, and I pray that before the end of his Presidency, people’s heart, mind and eyes will open.

 

There will never be another like him!

 

May he lead and be guided in the way God would want him to lead and guide. He is not perfect and has never claimed to be. He and this whole country are in need of our prayers. It only takes a spark.

 

No President has ever worked this hard for our country. Many wonder, does he ever sleep?

PRESIDENT OBAMA JANUARY 3 2013

Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham “scrotums” are on “fire,” because of Parboiled American Brown Rice!

Posted in 2001, Balls on fire, Benghazi, Bush's Policies, Commitment, Condoleeza Rice - Liar, Dick Cheney, Dr. Susan Rice, Dreams, Education, Equal rights for all, Equality, Extreme Views, Fox News, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, humility, Hypocrisy, John McCain, Kelly Ayotte, Libya, Lindsay Graham, Patience, Politics, President Obama, Racism, Republicans, Right Wing Extremists, UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Violence, Women's Rights with tags , on November 27, 2012 by sheriffali

This “Rice” [Susan] looks fairly short to “long grain white rice,” Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Kelly Ayotte. Dementia! There isn’t any other word to describe McCain, Graham, Ayotte and others who are following them on the Benghazi tragedy. As for Mrs. Ayotte she follows McCain and Graham like a dog in “heat,” but as for those two guys, well they no longer have “heat,” they are possessed by “HATE!”

 

Ambassador Rice subsequent to the Benghazi attacked that killed our Ambassador and three other Americans, stated that the information she was providing was what they had at the time and that, we would have to wait until a proper investigation is completed, to know the facts. I am of the firm belief that the Obama Administration is doing everything possible to find the perpetrators of this heinous act and bring them to justice, just as Obama did with Osama Bin Laden.

 

We must never forget that it was George W. Bush and his Administration that sat on threats made by Al Qaeda right up until August 6, 2001. This is no fiction it is fact! The Court Ordered release of the NIE (National Intelligence Estimate) on August 6, 2001 read;

 

Al Qaeda determined to strike within the United States using Aircrafts as Weapons.”

 

The daily Intelligence Briefing on August 6,  was given to then President George W. Bush carried that statement right at the very top. Bush’s then National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice saw the same information as Bush did. Along with these two, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and many others would have had access to the NIE briefing and what did they do; NOTHING! They sat on their arrogant backsides and allowed us to be decimated by the 9/11 attacks that killed over 3,000 Americans on American Soil.

 

One has to wonder; where were the Balls on fire McCain, Graham, the “in heat” Ayotte along with the other non-stop critics on the Benghazi attack then? Where was the Republicans Media Mouth Piece – Fox News – when 9/11 occurred?

 

I am neither White nor Black and people can think whatever they want, but, I am no racist. However, to suggest that racism does not exist in America is a fool’s folly! It seems very apparent that when a Republican Administration Screws-Up we should just accept it because it is beyond us. However, in this Benghazi tragedy I do believethat it is not only because President Obama is a Democrat, but it has more to do with him being Black!

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton final tour as Partners!

Posted in America, Burma, Cambodia, Hillary Clinton, Hope for better tomorrows, humility, President Obama, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, Secretary of State, Thailand, Women's Rights with tags , , , , , on November 19, 2012 by sheriffali

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia — They emerged from Air Force One together, side by side, smiling at the crowd waiting on the tarmac below. Then as they headed down the stairs, she held back just a little so that she would stay a step behind him.

For President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, this week’s trip to Southeast Asia is to be their last foreign adventure together in office, an intriguing, sometimes awkward closing road show that is nostalgic over a partnership at an end yet hints at a future ripe with possibility.

Four years after their cage-match battle for the presidency, the rivals-turned-allies proved a more compatible team than either might have imagined when Mrs. Clinton first accepted his invitation to join the cabinet. Though not exactly close friends, they developed a working relationship of respect, one in which Mr. Obama gave her the freedom to roam the world while she strategically deferred to him in ways small and large as she carried out his policies and shaped her own.

Mrs. Clinton’s signature initiative as America’s top diplomat is what has become known as the administration’s “pivot to Asia,” a strengthening of United States strategic, security and economic ties in the Asia-Pacific region. It is a policy Mr. Obama advanced with his three-country trip that began Saturday and included two nations never before visited by an American president, Myanmar and Cambodia.

Now as the president prepares to begin his second term, the secretary is stepping down, bone weary, according to aides, and ready for an extended rest after nearly a million miles of globe-trotting. She has waxed about the days not far off when she can relax, read a book and even travel just for pleasure. But many on Air Force One these last few days, not least the president himself, expect her to be back after a rest, making a bid to succeed him in 2016 and redefining their relationship once again.

As the last day of the trip arrived on Tuesday morning, Mrs. Clinton reflected briefly. “It’s been great,” she told reporters who stopped her in a hotel before heading out to summit meetings. “It’s been bittersweet, nostalgic, all the things you would expect.”Mr. Obama, too, has seemed to focus on the journey’s nature of finality, making a point of praising Mrs. Clinton publicly as they have jetted across Southeast Asia. They met up in Thailand and then traveled together on Monday to Myanmar and finally here to Cambodia. Along the way, they teamed up to meet with premiers and potentates, tour an ancient golden pagoda and chat with a Buddhist monk about budget deficits and maybe even presidential politics.

On the porch of the house of Myanmar’s opposition leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Mr. Obama gave Mrs. Clinton a shout-out.

“Where did Hillary go?” he suddenly asked as he interrupted his remarks about Myanmar’s transition from military rule. “Where is she?”

She caught his attention from the audience. “There she is,” he said to applause.

“I could not be more grateful,” he went on, “not only for your service, Hillary, but also for the powerful message that you and Aung San Suu Kyi send about the importance of women — and men — everywhere embracing and promoting democratic values and human rights.”

Mrs. Clinton, as is her style, has kept publicly quiet during the trip, leaving the president the stage while she has largely remained behind the scenes or in the audience. When the two arrived at Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi’s house, she hung back while Mr. Obama emerged from the limousine to be greeted.

And yet at times, her deeper experience in remote places around the world like this is palpable. After Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi shook Mr. Obama’s hand and began to draw him inside the house, she abruptly stopped as if remembering, turned around to look for Mrs. Clinton and then rushed over to give her a warm embrace. While Mrs. Clinton was seen as an old friend, Mr. Obama later appeared to mispronounce Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi’s name; she flinched but later hugged him.

Likewise, when Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton paid a courtesy call on the hospitalized King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, the secretary held back while the president advanced. “Your Majesty,” Mr. Obama said as he grasped the king’s hand. “It’s a great honor.”

Only then did Mrs. Clinton approach, but again with much greater familiarity. “Hello again,” she said. “It’s so good to see you again. And my husband sends you his very best regards.”

The king handed Mr. Obama some gifts, including a red box. “This is beautiful,” the president responded looking at something inside that could not be seen by reporters. “Thank you so much. This is lovely.”

An American woman next to Mrs. Clinton indicated that the gift was for Michelle Obama.

“Oh, thank you,” Mr. Obama said. “Michelle, my wife,” would “appreciate it.”

“She’ll look very good in that color, Mr. President,” Mrs. Clinton offered.

Thick in the air, if largely unspoken, was the question of Mrs. Clinton’s future. When the president and secretary went to the Wat Pho Royal Monastery in Bangkok to look at the famed Reclining Buddha, a monk told Mr. Obama that the statue was a symbol of success and would bring him a third term were he allowed to run. The Thai newspaper The Nation reported that the president pointed to Mrs. Clinton and said she would be the next president. Aides to both denied that, suggesting that the monk, not the president, may have forecast Mrs. Clinton’s future.

Either way, as the end drew near, the past and future were on the minds of both. Mr. Obama took Mrs. Clinton and her entourage to lunch at the United States Embassy in Yangon, Myanmar, on Monday to thank them for their work.

Then during the Air Force One flight to Phnom Penh that night, an official said, the two huddled alone for an hour, reminiscing about the last four years — and talking about what the next may bring.

True “Spiritualism” creates “oneness” with God, something, no Religion can accomplish!

Posted in Children, Christ, Darkness, Fallible, God, God is not a religion, God's love, God's Spirit, Heaven, Hope for better tomorrows, humility, Infallible God, Light, Oneness with God, Religion, Sin, Spiritual Strength, Spiritualism, Spirituality with tags , , , , on November 13, 2012 by sheriffali

God has never been and will never be a “Religion,” irrespective of what that Religion is or may be. Without exception, unequivocally, “all” Religions are the product of “mortal, infallible and imperfect man,” hence the reason for society’s disarray caused by man’s argument about who or what is the true religion.

 

The saint in public is a devil in private, dealing in flour by day and in soot by night. The cake which is burned on one side; is dough on the other! A cake not turned is soon burnt on the side nearest the fire, and although no one can have too much of God, there are some who seem burnt on black with bigoted zeal for the part of truth which they have received, or are charred to a cinder with a vainglorious Pharisaic Ostentation of those religious performances which suite their humor. The assumed appearance of superior sanctity frequently accompanies a total absence of all vital Godliness.

 

Has God’s grace gone through the very centre of our beings so as to be felt in its divine operations in all of our powers, actions, words and our thoughts? To be sanctified, spirit, soul and body; should be our aim and prayer; and although sanctification may not be perfect in us anywhere in degree, yet it must be universal in its action; there must not be the appearance of holiness in one place and reigning sin in another, else we too, wilt be “a cake not turned.”

 

If it be so with me, O Lord, turn me! Turn my unsanctified nature to fire of Thy love and let it feel the sacred glow, and let my burnt side cool a little, while I learn my own weakness and want of heat when I am removed from Thy heavenly flame.

 

Let me not be found a double-minded man, but one entirely under the powerful influence of reigning grace; for well I know if I am left like a cake unturned, and am not on both sides the subject of Thy grace, I must be consumed for ever amid everlasting burnings!
