The Nexus of Republicans and Vladimir Putin!

 

Republicans, since retaking control of the House of Representatives in 2010 and the forty-five Republican Senators, really haven’t done anything tangible to get us out of the precarious predicament George W. Bush left us in, but, despite that fact, with the intelligence of President Obama and the Democrats, “we have come a long way from where we were at the end of Bush’s Presidency in 2008.”

 

Banks are no longer collapsing; The Stock Market is at an all time high; The S & P went from a low of 730 and stands presently over 1,800, that helped the 401K Plans to not only regain 100% of its value, but added value beyond that. Unemployment that was at an all time high over 10% when Bush left Office is today 6.7%. Under Bush we had a net gain of jobs of one million for all of Bush’s eight years and under Obama, we added 8.9 million new jobs. Obama ended the Iraq war and by the end of this year we would be out of Afghanistan. The total cost of those two wars thus far, is estimated to be over four (4) trillion dollars.

 

However, Republicans cannot take credit for anything because rather than help they obstructed, lied, cheated, schemed and did everything to persuade the American people that “all that ails America and their lives is the fault of President Obama.” As strange as it may seem, a great majority of Americans seems to agree with the Republicans misnomer. To be frank about how uninformed and ignorant we have become, only 27% of Americans knew where Ukraine is located. In a recent Poll many Americans thought that Ukraine was within one of our fifty States; some thought it was located in South America and others placed Ukraine literally in the Ocean 180 degrees from where it is. So, in the final analysis, some of us are just plain dumb!

 

 

Putin is using Ukraine as a Panacea to hide Russia’s rough and tumbled economy and it is getting worse for Russia by the day as it pertains to Russia’s financial stability. However, Russia like North Korea control the media and Putin spoon feed the Russian people as to how great Russia is doing and out of being uninformed and ignorant of facts, many Russians see Putin as their Savior the same as many Americans see the Republicans as theirs.

 

Nothing can be further from the truth because factually, Republican Legislators have become Pariahs of the Middle-Class and the Poor and Putin; he is a self centered, conceited Pariah of anyone and everyone, except Putin.

 

In the final analysis, Putin and our Republican Legislators only interest, is to “remain in power, lie, cheat, steal, deceive for their own benefit and the few they favor!”

REPUBLICANS AND PUTIN

The Republicans are all mouth and no brain!

For Republicans to be whining about President Obama misreading Putin, they should reflect on their own guy, The Great George W. Bush who saw Putin’s Soul! I think the truth of the matter is the past Presidents that have dealt with Putin and Obama who is now dealing with Putin; they can’t be faulted for what they saw in Chameleon Putin!

Putin seems a little deranged and also possibly enraged over the collapse of the USSR. On top of that the information Edward Snowden stole and gave to Putin has America’s Defense Plan in the unlikely event of war. Putin who must have examined what Snowden gave him then realized that he “badly needed” a buffer zone and hence the reason he annexed Crimea, however, Russia’s entry into Crimea is “only” by air or Sea.  On the Eastern Part of Ukraine, Russia “land” borders with Ukraine and that may be Putin’s next goal.

The right wing who seems always hell bent on war can criticize Obama all they want, but, war seems like the most unlikely option. Economic Sanctions on the other hand, especially “targeting” Russia’s Central Bank would collapse Russia’s already devastated economy. But, even so, Obama has to be mindful of our European Allies. The Republicans are all mouth and no brain!

 GEORGE W. BUSH - PUTIN CARTOON APRIL 16 14

President Obama and President Putin can rectify the present indifferences without starting a war, but, the demagogues must stop their vacuousness!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2014 by sheriffali

In the final analysis, President Obama and President Putin can resolve the indifferences over the annexation of Crimea. Mr. Obama using measured sanctions against Russia, while leaving Mr. Putin enough room to extricate himself, represents Obama’s intelligence over ego. It seems that Putin is not a crazy man but he is definitely a proud man! Putin initiating a call to Obama on Friday, is a sign that this brisk but dysfunctional period can end without each side killing the other!

 

If we step back for a moment and without ignoring the lives lost or the humongous number of injured soldiers, the trillions of dollars spent on both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars; we could have rebuilt all the damaged schools; repair our badly needed infrastructure; invest into retraining American Workers and do more to efficiently educate America’s Children.

 

What did we get for the thousands of lives lost and the trillions of dollars spent?

 

Iraq! After eight years all we did was replace a Sunni Dictator with a Shiite Dictator that cast his lot with Iran. I am no defender of Saddam Hussein, but Iraq is far worst today than when we unintelligently and arrogantly invaded that sovereign country.

 

Afghanistan! After thirteen years; the Obama Administration did finally kill Osama Bin Laden in 2011 and during the course over the past years, we captured some bad people. However, had we remained focused when we attacked Afghanistan, our Soldiers perhaps could have captured the bad people and we would have been out of there in a matter of two to three years.

 

John McCain and some Republicans that never saw a war they didn’t like should give heed to the words of the wise and the humble;

 

“I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can; only as one who has seen its brutality, its stupidity.” DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER

 

“All wars represent a failure of diplomacy.” TONY BENN

 

“There never was a good war or a bad peace.” BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

 

“As long as war is regarded as wicked, it will always have its fascination; when it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.” OSCAR WILDE

 

“War may sometimes be a necessary evil, but no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other’s children.” JIMMY CARTER

 

Imagine the irony! Jeb Bush, the man who “shop-lifted” the State of Florida that propelled his brother, George W. Bush to the Presidency, attacked President Obama for “America’s Passivity.” People can agree or disagree, but it is the opinion of many that George W. Bush erased 225 years of America’s credibility by his futile and inept war expeditions. Bush started a war on “terror” in Afghanistan that became an Orwellian never ending war on “terror,” solely because Bush truncated Afghanistan in order to invade Iraq, for which the end results for both wars were; thousands of dead soldiers; tens of thousands injured; one hundred thousand plus dead innocent Iraqi’s that was caught in what is deemed as collateral damage and trillions of dollars spent.

 

If the Polls are correct majority of Americans are presently giving President Obama a failing grade and within the same Poll, predictions are that Republicans will win over the Senate. To think of the terrible state America was in at the end of 2008 and compare it with where we are today, it is positively shocking that so many people can believe wantonness by the Republicans over reality!

 

Is it hate or Obama’s race that make him prey to the many whites? Gallup just released a Poll for which the results reflected that “more whites” are more inclined to the Republican Party since Obama became President. 

 PRESIDENT OBAMA and PRESIDENT PUTIN

 

 

 

 

Everybody is an “expert!” The Right-Wing blames Obama for not intervening enough while the Left-Wing claim Obama is intervening too much – Ukraine – Crimea – Russia.

Unlike President Obama or any other United States President that are subject to the Constitution, Congress, The U S Supreme Court and the American people, Vladimir Putin answers to no one except Mr. Putin. All the Dog and Pony show coming out of Putin’s Russia with claims that the Russian Parliament voted for this or for that, “it is just a farce.”

 

 

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Russia’s billionaire that opposed Putin’s Dictator-Ship was imprisoned for ten years; all of his assets seized and just before the Sochi Olympics, Putin had him released. Mr. Khodorkovsky is presently living in Germany. Putin used Mr. Khodorkovsky’s assets and created one of the world largest Oil Companies, Rosneft. Prior to Rosneft, Exxon Mobile was the largest Oil Company.

 

However, Exxon Mobile and Rosneft executed an agreement in December 2013 that together, the collaboration of the project is approximately 500 Billion Dollars for the Arctic Research Centre (ARC). With companies like Exxon Mobile and others tied into Putin’s Russia, Vladimir knows that he is playing with a marked deck in his favor. With such leverage and the great Political Divide in America, Putin’s challenges would be fast and furious. Most of the talking heads in the Media and the self indulgent Politicians do not stop to think, much less see that “everything is not just black and white.”

 

It’s been interesting to observe the large numbers of people who suddenly think they’re experts on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine-both those on the left who blame it on Obama for intervening too much and those on the right who blame it on Obama for not intervening enough.

 

On the right, you have political figures claiming that Obama’s supposed “weakness” somehow emboldened Moscow to engage in aggressive moves against Crimea. Sarah Palin, for example, claims that Obama’s failure to respond forcefully to Russia’s bloody incursion into Georgia in 2008 made Russia’s “invasion” possible, despite the fact that Obama wasn’t even president then and therefore couldn’t have done much. Even some Democrats, like Delaware senator Chris Coons, claim that Obama’s failure to attack Syria last fall made the United States look weak.

 

In reality, there seems to be little correlation between the willingness of Moscow to assert its power in areas within its traditional spheres of influence and who occupies the White House: The Soviets invaded Hungary in 1956 when Eisenhower was president; the Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968 when Johnson was president; the Soviets successfully pressed for martial law in Poland in 1981 when Reagan was president; the Russians attacked Georgia in 2008 when Bush was president.

 

In each case, as much as these administrations opposed these actions, it was determined that any military or other aggressive counter-moves would likely do more harm than good. Washington cannot realistically do any more in response to Russian troops seizing Crimea in 2014 in the name of protecting Russian lives and Russian bases than Moscow could do in response to U.S. troops seizing Panama in 1989 in the name of protecting American lives and American bases.

 

In the final analysis it is self evident that The GOP extreme right-wing megalomaniac torrent is fratricidal to America, both foreign and domestic! Their 24/7 individual and collective outlandish tongues, emboldens the Putins’ of this world! John McCain just returned from Ukraine and one day later, went on Television and said; “Obama is weak and timid.” A tartar may be more at home on Cheapside than the rant against Obama from the “know it all Republicans!”

 PRESIDENT OBAMA - TYRANTS

 

 

Vladimir Putin using Edward Snowden as a USED CAR SALES MAN to taint America and is helped by America’s News Media!

What fools some of us have become in endorsing Edward Snowden as a Patriotic Hero.

 

When Russia’s autocratic KGB Leader Vladimir Putin agreed to give Edward Snowden one year asylum, Putin said that he was doing so on the basis that Snowden would not release any further information about America’s NSA Program.

 

Well, let us look at the facts:

 

Every few weeks Edward Snowden releases some more of the “stolen” information that he shoplifted from the American people. With every release it is only America that Snowden slanders and if that is not bad enough; The New York Times; The Washington Post; The Huffington Post; CNN and many other News Outlets, gives Snowden daily Air-Time, be it in Print News or Television.

 

Snowden and those that supports him claims that he is a Patriot doing his moral duty! Well, is that true? Every major country in the World is Spying on each other including Russia and China. Russia spies on America for Military purposes while China spies on America on a daily basis for Industrial Espionage purposes.

 

Edward Snowden who has betrayed his country and is a “treasonous,” took Tax Payers money that paid his very hefty salary; breached his oath of office; stole America’s Intelligence Classified Secrets and gave it to both China and Russia, claiming that he was doing this for the good of the American people.

 

One has to ask, who are benefitting from Snowden’s stolen leaks? Most certainly it is not the American people, but rather, the Russian and Chinese Government. Because with every leak by Snowden, whether Snowden is truthful or not, “we America,” looks more like an Ochlocracy [A Mob/Mafia type Government] than a Democracy, and if you can’t see the difference for yourselves, then no one can convince you as to how wrong, deceptive and unpatriotic, Edward Snowden is, and, just how serious of a “fraud” Vladimir Putin is!

 

You may not agree with everything your country does, but, under no circumstances you shouldn’t betray your country to any foreign Government, especially, those that want to see America fall so that their despicable, deplorable, communist rule; can prosper. Edward Snowden is fully cognizant of Vladimir Putin’s outrageous myrmidon rule against his people and Gays and Lesbians [LGBT], but, Snowden has no comment on any issue, except to further scandalize America.

 

In all of Snowden’s comments, I will wage “all” that I have in wealth, that so long as Snowden is on Russian Soil, he would never criticize Vladimir Putin or Putin’s Henchmen Government, because the day he does, no one will ever see or hear from Edward Snowden again.

 

Open the link and see one of America’s leading News Paper, The New York Times; concurrence with Snowden’s deplorable behavior.
