The Lone AmericanFilmmaker Exposes Colossal Conspiracy by France and Germany in Iraq War.
Thomas Schuesler is pretty much your average American guy. He loves his family and runs a small business in a Southern California surf town. Schuesler never held any hard and fast political opinions, although he’d traveled enough to know many people he met throughout the world felt differently about the U.S. than he did—which was fine by him.
But one day his world perspective dramatically changed.
Obama nears his nuclear moment
From the Financial Times of London
By Edward Luce
At the start of Barack Obama’s term, few moments better crystallized America’s change of face than his “New Day” video address to the Iranian people. Ending with a salutation in Farsi,
Mr Obama offered Iran a new era of “co-operation”. It followed from the promise in his inaugural address to “extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist”unhappily, Tehran has ignored Mr Obama’s overtures. Not only is Iran thought to be within striking distance of how Israel defines its “zone of immunity” – the point at which Iranian nuclear weapons capability is irreversible – it has also threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz.
Nothing spells global recession faster than $200-a-barrel oil prices. And nothing will bring a colder sweat to Mr Obama’s electoral strategists than the thought of conflict with Iran.
Yet that is what many in Washington are now calling a “probability”. Some White House officials have referred to 2012 as the “year of Iran”. It was supposed to be dominated by the US economy. Might it instead be the moment Mr Obama takes that 3am phone call?
Congress Calls for Accelerated Use of Drones in U.S.February 3rd, 2012 by Steven Aftergood.
A House-Senate conference report this week called on the Administration to accelerate the use of civilian unmanned aerial systems UAS, or “drones,” in U.S. airspace.The pending authorization bill for the Federal Aviation Administration directs the Secretary of Transporation to develop within nine months “a comprehensive plan to safely accelerate the integration of civil unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace system.”“The plan… shall provide for the safe integration of civil unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace system as soon as practicable, but not later than September 30, 2015.
”The conference bill, which still awaits final passage, also calls for establishment of UAS test ranges in cooperation with NASA and the Department of Defense, expanded use of UAS in the Arctic region, development of guidance for the operation of public unmanned aircraft systems, and new safety research to assess the risk of “catastrophic failure of the unmanned aircraft that would endanger other aircraft in the national airspace system.”
The rebels captured and killed Libyan dictator Mummar Gaddafi this week.
CNN and FNC joyously displayed Gadhafi being beaten. Later they displayed Gadhafi’s corpse in a supermarket freezer.
Don’t get me wrong. Gaddafi’s deserved to die, but not like this.
The Russians, Chinese, and Amnesty International jumped in to say that the brutal killing of the evil dictator was a breach of international law.
So who is really to blame? Was it the rabble that U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama supported? He could have sent in troops to capture the evil one in those last days and avoided all of this.
Therefore it is Obama’s fault. A feckless indecisive leadership here in America is the reason for this brutal display.
Russia and China are right!
Once again Obama’s lack of leadership leaves America looking bad before the world.
I must admit that I have a fascination with the post-Apocalypse genre of movie.
I think I have seen them all … except for Battle Los Angeles. I avoided that one last March because I was afraid I would stand up in some crowded theater and cheer for the aliens. I digress ….
The latest is Falling Skies on Turner Network Television. Steven Spielberg produced it. As one may guess, it is full of political correctness and demons on both side. It is an allegory for the War on Terror where the left wants YOU to believe that the Americans started it. Rather, in this video romp, they drive home the point that the “creeps on the right” are more dangerous than the alien pseudo-terrorists.
Here’s the scenario. An alien invasion has reduced mankind to but a few hundred souls. The aliens seem ready to rub out any adult, but they spare the youth. The aliens strap harnesses on the kids to control them. …and the kids love it!
The humans must first deal with a redneck, gun-toting loner, who looks like a generic Nashville country musician. They consider him just a “dangerous” as the aliens. Then they have the humans who seem to want to make a quick buck out of the horror by throwing in with the aliens.
The season is coming to an end. All the demons have been severely chastised. Now, this Sunday, TNT and Spielberg will rip off a two-hour finale. Who will win? Who cares!
