  • Behind Petraeus’s Resignation
    November 10, 2012

    Exclusive: The resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair marks a stunning reversal for the longtime media darling. But some in President Obama’s inner circle are not displeased the neocon-friendly ex-general is gone, reports Robert Parry.

    The messy departure of CIA Director David Petraeus over an extramarital affair removes the last high-ranking neoconservative holdover from George W. Bush’s administration and gives the reelected President Barack Obama more maneuvering room to negotiate a settlement over Iran’s nuclear program.

    BEHIND OBAMA’S BACK: As Bob Woodward reported in his book, Obama’s Wars, it was Bush’s old team that made sure Obama was given no option other than to escalate troop levels in Afghanistan substantially. The Bush holdovers also lobbied for the troop increase behind Obama’s back.

    According to Woodward’s book, Gates, Petraeus and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Adm. Mike Mullen, refused to even prepare an early-exit option that Obama had requested. Instead, they offered up only plans for their desired escalation of about 40,000 troops.

  • Romney, Landslide Loser Refuses Timely Concession!

    EXCERPT:

    “America does some really dumb things but running an organized crime boss for president, and a bumbling wimp of one at that, this had gone too far.

    THE FIX

    What we saw here was a failure, an attempt to put a lizard with a bow tie in the White House. We can’t allow this again.

    We can no longer accept the government under these circumstances, the money in politics, the rule by special interest, the war for profit and the imposed third world slavery that the American people are expecting their grandchildren to face.
    Obama don’t get off the hook, he is now free to do all those thing he promised.”

    UAW Charges Romney from Profiteering from Auto Bailout!

    For Mitt Romney, it’s one scary Halloween. The Presidential candidate has just learned that tomorrow afternoon (November 1) he will be charged by the United Automobile Workers (UAW) and other public interest groups with violating the federal ethics in government law by improperly concealing his multi-million dollar windfall from the auto industry bailout.

    At a press conference in Toledo, Bob King, President of the United Automobile Workers, will announce that his union and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) have filed a formal complaint with the US Office of Government Ethics in Washington stating that Gov. Romney improperly hid a profit of $15.3 million to $115.0 million in Ann Romney’s so-called “blind” trust.

    Will Mitt Romney, Who Actually Owns the Black Box Voting Machines, Try to Steal the US presidential election?

    Despite the thunderous silence of the media, all signs are pointing towards another neocon-Republican election theft attempt, like the successful ones of 2000 and 2004. One warning sign: The appearance of blatantly fraudulent public opinion polls giving Romney a substantial lead over Obama. While all other polls show that Obama has enough of an edge in the swing states to constitute an electoral-college “firewall,” Gallup’s national polls – using a “likely voter” model that apparently posits an inverse correlation between voting and skin pigmentation – currently give Romney an edge of more than five points in the popular vote.
    Why would the Republicans falsify a prominent national poll? To give Romney “momentum,” and create the illusion of plausibility when rigged voting machines hand him a “surprise victory.”

    Candy Crowley Defeats the GOP!
    “Because money has no bounds for Romney’s supporters, who stand to benefit from the trillions in tax breaks he wants to impose, including eliminating taxes on capital gains and abolishing the estate tax, bribing a member of the ambassador’s staff would have been child’s play.

    Romney’s initial criticism was issued within two minutes of Hillary Clinton’s announcement about the attack. How was that even possible, unless it had been contrived? It should be obvious that this very professional execution was carried out by highly-trained mercenaries or members of the Mossad.”

    President’s Policies are Working — U.S. Debt has Shrunk to a six-year low! http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/10/10/1142543/-Bloomberg-U-S-debt-has-shrunk-to-a-six-year-low via @dailykos — Despite GOP Obstruction!

    That said, President Obama is a truthful, honest, brilliant man who is concerned about all of Americans, not just the 47 percent or the rich and well connected. He is working hard to right the wrongs that have caused the U.S. to be a nation that benefits the wealthy while the average Joe & Jane are being squeezed and the doors of opportunity closing. Pres. Obama is w orking for fairness and equal opportunity for all. He is not lying or making up stuff to get elected. Remember the Mitt you heard when he thought no one was looking, the one on the Secret Videotape is the real Mitt Romney, and it ain’t pretty.

    Congressman Judy Chu to addressing the House: “Mr. Speaker, at the end of what Republicans consider to be a grueling work week consisting of 2 1/2 whole days, Republicans are heading home once again to take the next 2 months off. The Republican-led “Do-Nothing Congress” was in session for a grand total of 8 days this month, and it took 5 weeks off before that. During their time here in Washington, Republicans made sure to vote to end Medicare as we know it, increase costs for seniors, and give tax breaks to millionaires and companies that ship jobs overseas”, she said.

    But on addressing the ongoing jobs crisis in this country, they did nothing. On providing tax cuts for the middle class and small business, they did nothing. On working towards a bipartisan solution to the looming fiscal cliff, they left the American people hanging by continuing to do nothing”, she said. The hardworking men and women who call this country home deserve so much better. They certainly deserve better than nothing”,

    Romeny is a Corporation running for president – “The avarice of Romney and his buddies at the strip-mining, job-exporting, bankrupting private equity company called Bain Capital has no bounds. He thinks it’s perfectly fine for companies like Verizon, Boeing, Duke Energy, Navistar, Wells Fargo and Pepco to use all of our country’s government funded public infrastructures and services, and yet not only pay no income tax but actually rig the tax system so they can get billions back in “benefits”from the U.S. Treasury, as General Electric has done for years. At the same time, Romney never speaks out against 35,000 super-wealthy Americans who also do not pay any federal income tax. He rarely questions crony capitalism, wants to maintain an even bigger bloated military budget, and spearheads the many-sided supremacy of corporations over real people throughout our entire political economy. He is, essentially, a corporation running for president masquerading as an individual.”

    I believe the Birther comment is a smokescreen to refocus reporters away from the Bombshell Bain papers which exposes Romeny putting money in offshore accounts, financing gambling & cigarettes; and who knows what else is in there. Mitt is very afraid of these explosive & revealing documents! Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, for which Romney has served as a bishop, opposes gambling, smoking, LYING!

    Democrats did not hi-jack the Debt Ceiling thereby weakening the Econony. When Pres Obama is as able to act without the Congress, he has been a success,example: auto industry, Bin Ladin. But the truth of the matter is in regards to the purse strings and getting his polcies enacted on, he needs the cooperation of the GOP-Congress, who has stalled and refused to pass these Initiatives, because they don’t want to create jobs and make Pres. Obama a sucess. This is very troublesome because there are thousands of homeless familes hungry and jobless all across the USA and yet the GOP Congress refuse to lift a finger to help them! And remember, Romney wants less Government and therefore less teachers, firemen and policemen. He wants less student loans, and aid to the poor and middleclass. They don’t want good paying jobs but Banana Republic Jobs. They never want to raise the minimum wage and ObamaCare is really Romenycare who is and was the Author and Father of Obamacare!
