On August 14, Obama did what he does best, deceiving and betraying the public. Again it was on the Gulf disaster, saying:
"Today, the well is capped, oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf, and it has not been flowing for a month....I also want to point out that as a result of the cleanup effort, beaches all along the Gulf Coast are clean and safe and open for business....But I won't be satisfied until the environment has been restored, no matter how long it takes."
False on all counts. The Macondo well was capped, but video and other evidence show continued leakage, an organization called Concerned Citizens of Florida (CCF), saying:
"....government cannot be relied upon to impart all the information that we need to make informed and necessary decisions. We know that they will not (and have not) respond(ed) quickly (and adequately) enough to this unfolding disaster or perform to the standard that is required to meet it head on." Nor will the major media, "act(ing) as a mouthpiece for both government and industry."

AN EPIC AMERICAN FAILURE
The submarine launch of an ICBM off the California coast on November 8 is a milestone in American history. The immediate denials that it was an American test were a public relations disaster. America’s government does little but lie to its people, 9/11, Osama bin Laden, we could go on forever. In fact, nothing coming out of Washington or the press is remotely credible and it has finally been proven. This is a private confirmation we received:
REDACTED: Finally there is something that has occurred, in which I am actually an expert and qualified to give a real answer about. I am a retired U.S. Navy FireControl Technician, who is platform certified in missile systems XXXXXXXXX, I have also worked with the Navy’s Harpoon, Tomahawk and ASROC missile systems.Anyway, what I saw in the recent video concerning the object 30 miles off the coast of CA is blatantly a foreign made, Large Cruise or ICBM missile, being launched by a sub-surface aquatic platform.

"Is that a Pistole in your pocket, Nappy, or are you just happy to see us?"
In response to public and pilot outrage at sexual assault by transportation security authorities and to the carcinogenic x-ray machines used to scan flyers, New Jersey lawmakers announced on Monday the introduction of several resolutions banning such practices.
Additionally, the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Aviation Operations, Safety, and Security is holding a Transportation Security Administration Oversight Hearing today (10 AM Wednesday).

By a vote of 74 to 25, at noon today, the U.S. Senate voted for cloture on S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, which means it must now be voted on in the full Senate within 60 days. All amendments to the controversial food control bill must be completed by that time.
One of S 510's supporters, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, opposed cloture because modifications to the bill do not reflect its original intent, he said on C-SPAN. Chambliss fully supports giving the FDA more power over the US food supply, but is unhappy with the Manager's Amendment submitted in August.

[GERD is a lot of burping, a burning sensation in the chest and abdomen and an excessive amount of mucous masking as saliva that makes you cough a lot.]
Seven months ago I was diagnosed with Reflux laryngitis. I was told to swallow the mucous in my mouth instead of clearing my throat.
I didn’t know my diagnosis was Gerd, because I didn’t bother to read the Reflux Protocol the Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist (ENT) gave me when I left the office.
Had I read the sheet I would have wondered what Maalox, tight fitting clothes and elevating my head when I went to sleep had to do with my coughing from all that junk in my mouth and throat.
The Doctor was right if I swallowed the stuff it worked. I wondered out loud why nothing came out when I blew my nose. No one had an answer.
That was seven months ago, now I am coughing, belching and burning.
I am in trouble. It doesn’t matter if I eat or don’t eat, swallow or don’t swallow, I have heartburn in my stomach, pain in my chest not to mention a lot of burping.
Visiting the MedHelp.org forum didn’t help. You can be diagnosed with Gerd from just about anything you do: stress, toothache, bad posture, hernia you name it Gerd is a scourge. A typical post:
“Tears are swelling up in my eyes. I thought that i was the one person who was experiencing the belching drama. I am in my 6 years of trying to determine what is going on with me. I've tried it all (diet, meds, chiropractor, meditation, acupuncture), so I am waiting in my belching mode for relief that I am hoping will come from this forum.”
I don’t get physicals and only go to the doctor when I think it’s something simple to cure.
When I was a kid there weren’t specialists and the doctor actually came to your house. Our doctor had this to say about medicine… in 1950:
• 95% of the people who are sick will get better by themselves.
• 2.5% will get better with very little help.
• The rest who are sick can’t be helped.
I can hide the junk in my mouth but that belching and burning isn’t very attractive.

When all else fails, offer money, or in this case weapons for peace (a clear oxymoron) via for a three month settlement construction moratorium in name only. In fact, new building is unimpeded, Obama's offer a facade to hide reality on the ground. More on the deal below.
Last December, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the moratorium, saying he hoped it would launch meaningful peace talks. They're entirely fraudulent ones, a grand illusion even Netanyahu once called "a waste of time."

In early November, thousands of Haitians rallied for President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's return and presidential hopeful Jean-Henry Ceant in the November 28 elections, one rigged by banning 14 political parties, including Fanmi Lavalas, by far the most popular.
Ceant founded Aimer Haiti (Love Haiti), "a movement uniting and integrating human-centered (principles) and committed to the pursuit of the ideals of unity, solidarity and fraternity to build a new Haiti on the basis of shared responsibility, social justice, peace and economic progress for all."
He's also a notaire (notary), businessman, community leader and philanthropist, the only candidate most Haitians support, whether or not he'll deliver on promises if elected. Aristide did, Preval for a while, then sold out the public that backed him. Given Washington's iron fist and no shyness using it, populist governments everywhere are at risk, especially in deeply impoverished countries like Haiti.

An earlier article said it was expected, accessed through the following link:
It discussed Indonesia's National Armed Forces (TNI), especially its thuggish Kopassus Special Forces Command, its red beret unit responsible for political killings, torture, rape, and massacres of hundreds of thousands of civilians in East Timor, Aceh, Papua, and elsewhere in the country.
TNI aid was restricted following a November 12, 1991 Santa Cruz cemetery massacre of over 270 demonstrators in Dili, East Timor. In July, it was restored, a July 22 East Timor Action Network (ETAN) press release "condemn(ing) the Obama administration's decision to resume engagement with Indonesia's notorious Kopassus special forces," ETAN's National Coordinator, John Miller, saying:
Until April 5, 2013 the 1984 American science fiction-horror film, directed by John Carpenter could be streamed or downloaded from a number of websites. They Live (Full movie) was in the playlist below created by Buddy Huggins.
