The Upcoming US Elections: Does It Matter Which Party Wins?

Submitted by Green Monkey

President Barack Obama labelled The Anti-Christ

Does it really matter who wins the next US election?  Or is the President just a useful tool to implement the plans of his controllers, i.e. corporate America, which are often contrary to the best interests of the masses. Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and former Wall Street Journal editor, Paul Craig Roberts, says the two party system in the USA is a farce.

The Dispossessed Majority

The bumper sticker on the beat-up pickup truck read: “Friends don’t let friends vote Democrat.”

The driver was obviously not affluent. Yet, despite all the news about mega-trillion dollar bankster bailouts, mega-million dollar bonuses for financial crooks, and unimaginable compensation packages for corporate CEOs who have moved middle class jobs out of America, something made the down-and-out pickup truck driver associate with the political party of the super-rich.

As I wondered at this strange alliance of the dirt poor with the mega-rich, I remembered that in 2004 Thomas Frank wondered about how the Republicans had managed to convince the poor to vote against their best interests. Frank’s answer, or part of his answer, is that the Republicans use “social issues,” such as gay marriage and Janet Jackson’s exposed nipple to work up indignation over the threat to moral values posed by liberal Democrats.

snip

The non-affluent who rage about welfare, medicaid, Obamacare, and public schools can’t seem to put two and two together. The $750 billion TARP bankster bailout, a small part of the total and ongoing bailout, would have sufficed to cover any holes in these budgets for a long time.. Instead, the money went to reward those who caused the financial crisis and threw millions of Americans out of their homes. As far as I know, the pickup truck driver is one of the dispossessed.

The same brainwashed Americans who rage against Obamacare and are lined up to vote for Romney are oblivious to the fact that Romney, while governor of the eastern liberal Democratic state of Massachusetts, had his version of Obamacare enacted at the state level.

The greatest irony about Obamacare is that it was written by the private insurance companies and diverts Medicaid and Medicare funds to their profits. It is socialized medicine alright, but it is socialism for the private insurance companies.

snip

So which do you want? The Republican panderer to the rich and Israel whose foreign policy is war or the Democrat panderer to the rich and Israel whose foreign policy is war? As Gerald Celente wrote in the July issue of the Trends Journal, americans “argue among themselves why their freak is better than the other freak. They will get angry with you if you call their freak a freak. They will actually fight and die to defend their freaks.”

It is extraordinary that millions of americans actually believe fervently that it matters whether Romney freak or Obama freak gets elected. If americans had any sense, they would stay home and not vote. The 1% control the country, and the 99% had just as well own up to it and stay at home. Nothing is going to change because of the ballot box.

snip

The US is ruled by a private oligarchy. The government is merely their front. The country’s resources are diverted to the pockets of Wall Street, the military/security complex, and to the service of greater Israel. The oil, mining, timber, and agribusiness companies control the Environmental Protection Agency and the Forestry Service, which is why regulation only pertains to the small individual, while fracking, mountaintop removal mining, and pollution of air, water, and soil run wild.

The oligarchs have succeeded in making americans a dispossessed majority in their own country. In November americans will again give their approval to one of the oligarchy’s two candidates.

  1. @Bush Tea
    “….same exact situation in Barbados”

    yip. In many different ways. Makes you wonder if like the economic situation this has now become the norm.


    • The big talk in the USA today is that the Republicans never intended for Obama to success hence the vehemence with which they oppose his policies.


  2. I think that the democratic foreign policy, while not being on ‘our side’ financially re the Caribbean, is less dangerous to world stability than the republican foreign policy, which has always been aggravatory and strongly biased to the ‘oligarchy wishes’.

    That said, I think the biggest concern, moreso than which party wins, is the availability of scarce resources, beginning with food, over the next ten years and continuing.

    We MUST become food self reliant. The drought in the US and other natural flood disasters worldwide, demonstrates the need to be less dependent on international food sources, particularly US, if only because of the hige inflationary pressure, but also other reasons.

    Scarce Resources….the two big words for the next ten years.

    As for the oligarchy of the wealthy, that manipulates world affairs, that is more true, than not. Be wary.


  3. @Bushie
    HA HA HA….. the DLP “gone to the dogs”…you all call this a strategy?….This is a sure sign of jingoism and obsequious to politics of the meretricious.Obama’s politicking is external and should be treated as such.This paralleling is but a sure sign of the last of all desperations of a confused and jigsawed group, who are willing to cling to anything for leadership and solace…Come now fellows, is this what is has come to? (lol)


    • @Crusoe

      Given your interest in foreign affairs you must be aware that after 10 years the Afghan situation has deteriorated. Does anyone in the US care?


  4. Bush Tea….you took the words outta my mouth! Except I was just going to say clearly.The Upcoming Barbados Elections: Does It Matter Which Party Wins?

    To me…until the parties begin to do what is right for the people and not for themselves…no it does not! Sad enough.


  5. As a black person, i would have supported Mr Obama’s effort to become President of the USA and would have applauded his effort and similarly i hope he gets another term even against the background that the policies of the Democratic party are inward looking and harm the efforts of small island states like Barbados to implement policies to aid their development. The recent position of the Obama Administration vis avis access to loans from IADB by Barbados and some others is not therfore surprising given the belligerent position taken by the Clinton administration in penalising countries benefitiing from Off-shore business and and their unrelenting support for South American Chiquita banana company to the detriment of the Windward Islands Banana Association.


  6. As to which party wins…(foreign policy)…fool yourself if you think US foreign policies can be changed by a black president….we already had a taste of this earlier before( Holder’s visit)….don’t try and plant sweet potatoes and yams for ourselves….see if we don’t starve..US don’t care about anybody….sometimes even its own…(indianseskimoes)…the Caribbean ?..get real do….


  7. “et, despite all the news about mega-trillion dollar bankster bailouts, mega-million dollar bonuses for financial crooks, and unimaginable compensation packages for corporate CEOs who have moved middle class jobs out of America, something made the down-and-out pickup truck driver associate with the political party of the super-rich.’
    Let me first posit that the USA is not a country like for example Great Britain, or France or Germany or Russia or Greece but a conglomeration of immigrants from other countries who displaced the indigenous natives from their birth place and developed the land into what it is today by wheeling and dealing . In other words corruption upon which countries like ours thrive when the crumbs fall from the tables of corruption.. Hence, despicable agencies like the Stock Market and the Mafia has thrived with gay abandon. I once told an influential friend some years ago that the whole world was a hoax and mere mortals like us were only playing a part whether it be as a terrorist, a communist, a capitalist, a boy scout , a buller, a priest, a samaritan, a teacher, a Prime Minister of a banana republic as countries like ours are viewed on the world stage, a Governor- general and the list goes on. In the play, we are allowed the liberty of lulling ourselves into a false sense of believing that what we do matters. The President of the USA does not even has as much power as Mr Stuart. Other than the crumbs countries like ours have little to gain irrespective of who is President of the USA.


  8. @balance….the Illuminata reigns?
    And we are the mere pawns.
    I have oft wondered where all these spoils gine when those within are all dead…maybe they have some knowledge about another world they can take all their ill-conceived money to…or perhaps they just leave it behind for their little Illuminaties to continue the continuous. Oh! Joy! Think I will go paint and painting and then go to the beach!


  9. In another thread it was asked would…Would the World fair better had we not a Black president in the White House….”Some believe that there are tycoons withholding $ 3 trillion from the money supply in order to topple the Obama regime and restore the status quo.”…what is your spin ?


  10. @David,

    Foreign policy, at a time of scarce resources, becomes VERY important, if not to the voters, to those who rule the coffers.

    Hence, the last twenty years work in the Middle East and the ‘urgent need’ to rid the Middle East of the two most (that may be questionable however) ‘independent and volatile’ leaders i.e. Hussain and Gaddafi, who both controlled a huge portion of oil reserves.

    Brazil has ‘become’ ultra important to this group as well, now that it has identified a huge reserve of oil.

    IF we in Barbados discover, for example, a large field off the ast Coast, then we will become suddenly very close…albeit we also become controlled directly.

    As for Afghanistan, was that about attending to the moral issue of getting those responsible for the bombing i.e. Bin Laden, or more about ensuring much was spent on weapons, rations etc, so some could profit, as per Iraq.

    As one gets older one gets quite cynical. We see greed in governments, businesses even, contrary to the hope we have as children growing up, families i.e. those who have or have been given much, want more and more and more.

    As Rosemary says, they must have a way of taking it with them when they translate to the next level, seem not to have the same understanding of this mortality, that we do. So I say, ……let them ga long.


  11. @ balance
    …interesting concept…. The whole world is a stage.

    The difference between Obama and Stuart… Stuart does not have the wherewithall to destroy a whole country like Afganistan, Libya, Syria or Iran.


  12. @Crusoe

    Your point confirms it matters not who occupies the White House.

    Some forget also that Obama is President of the USA and NOT President of Black Americans.


  13. Regardless of the mainstream media promoted, two ringed political circus, in the USA the golden rule still applies: Those who have the gold make the rules.

    “I don’t have anything against the people personally. They are just part of a system that… when I got down to Washington.. I mean… I was really shocked to see… how much the interests of Wall Street…. how much power a handful of Wall Street banks have over our government and how much power they had over the bailout” – Neil Barofsky, former Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).

    Barofsky interviewed on CNN:
    BAILOUT: TARP Was For Wall Street Not Main Street

      You may recall an Obama ‘manifesto’ pledge was to bring change to The Capitol, what does it say?


  14. THE ALINSKY CODE
    How America is confused, intimidated
    and dominated by the left’s secret language

    Millions of Americans feel they’re living in a war zone, the bombardments coming their way daily.

    Non-stop lies and corruption. White House “czars” with communist backgrounds. Brazen presidential power grabs. Bows to enemy leaders and insults to allies. Intentionally destructive economic and energy policies. Presidential hot-mic gaffes proving collusion with America’s enemies.

    No wonder Americans are more worried today about the very survival of their nation than at any time since the Civil War.

    But underlying the madness – underlying all of the epic, high-level subversion of America – enabling it, justifying it, disguising it – is a secret language of the left, a language most citizens neither understand nor even recognize.

    This secret language, an essential ingredient in America’s rapidly advancing socialist transformation, is dramatically exposed in May’s groundbreaking issue of Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE ALINSKY CODE.”

    Without this secret language, the “matrix” of deceit and delusion enveloping modern America would soon disappear – just as in the sci-fi film blockbuster “The Matrix” – and citizens would behold Barack Obama and his administration for exactly what they really are: committed revolutionaries of the radical left.

    “In Orwell’s ‘1984,’” says Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, “a tyrannical future government maintains power with the help of a powerfully manipulative language called ‘Newspeak,’ featuring propaganda slogans of the ruling political party – like ‘WAR IS PEACE,’ ‘FREEDOM IS SLAVERY’ and ‘IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.’

    “America today is being turned upside-down thanks to a ‘1984’-style ‘Newspeak’ language in which the political and cultural building blocks of today’s society now mean the opposite of what they originally meant,” he says.

    For example, how did the act of generously providing aid to those in need, formerly called “charity,” turn into its exact opposite – “entitlement”? How did “illegal aliens,” who used to be criminals, turn into “immigrants – the backbone of our nation”?

    Everyone knows homosexuals are now “gay,” abortion advocates “pro-choice” and atheists “brights,” but did you know some mental-health professionals now refer to pedophilia as “intergenerational sex” and child molesters as “minor-attracted persons” or MAPs? How did Islam (where the popular euphemism for pedophilia is “child marriage” and adultery is called “temporary marriage”) become a “religion of peace”? How did the Obama administration convert the act of war on 9/11 that resulted in the mass-slaughter of almost 3,000 Americans into a “man-caused disaster” and our response to it an “overseas contingency operation”? Have we so redefined everything that we now embrace “1984”-style deceptions such as “CHARITY IS ENTITLEMENT,” “MORALITY IS HATE,” “FAITH IS IGNORANCE,” “ENVY IS RIGHTEOUSNESS” and “THEFT IS JUSTICE”?

    Featured in “THE ALINSKY CODE” is a comprehensive, groundbreaking report by David Kupelian titled “Magic words: The left’s secret weapon for transforming traditional America.” Among its startling findings: America’s controversial “political correctness” culture – imposed full-strength on college students and only slightly diluted on the rest of the population – traces its origins to none other than the notorious Chinese communist leader Mao Zedong, who holds the distinction of having killed more people than anyone else in history – some 50-70 million souls, more than Stalin and Hitler combined.

    Highlights of “THE ALINSKY CODE” include:

    “The left’s scorched-earth policy” by Joseph Farah, on the left-wing obsession with censoring and eliminating opposing voices

    “Magic words” by David Kupelian, on the left’s secret weapon for transforming traditional America

    “Lib-Speak: A lexicon for the Age of Obama” by Don Feder

    “Political word games” by Thomas Sowell, who calls Barack Obama a “master” of “lying smoothly” by redefining words

    “50 forbidden words” by Joe Kovacs, reporting on the New York City school district that found “politics,” “evolution” and even “birthdays” too offensive to include in tests

    “What is ‘fair’?” by John Stossel, who demonstrates that wall-to-wall injustice lurks behind the left’s favorite rallying cry

    “President of the lie” by David Kupelian, on what happens when the free world’s leader is constantly deceptive?

    “Alinsky’s methods explained” by Phyllis Schlafly, on how Obama’s role model Saul Alinsky proved revolutionary action starts with a few choice words

    “The wannabe tyrant’s secret” by David Kupelian, on what makes negative societal transformation so easy for radicals to accomplish

    “Why liberals won’t debate conservatives” by Dennis Prager, who says “The left is a victim of its own brainwash”

    “It’s not too late to stop this madness,” said Kupelian, “but we simply have to understand the language the elite are speaking to each other – and to us. Not to understand it is to adopt it, assimilate it, and unwittingly participate in the transformation of America into a place the Founding Fathers wouldn’t even begin to recognize.”

  17. Barack Obama: America’s Enemy

    By David J. Stewart

    I hope that you’ll look beyond Barack Obama and see the bigger picture. The powers that be were happy to trash out the name of George W. Bush; but Bush was just a poster-boy for a criminal syndicate which has taken over the United States.

    Obama was placed into office with a plethora of newsmedia hype, praise and worship; but the first year of the Obama Presidency has accomplished more evil than all the 8 years George W. Bush spent in office. Already, Obama has increased the national debt more than any other U.S. President in American history. Something is very wrong with that. It’s all a big deception. The corporate-controlled newsmedia has led the masses in praise of a politician who is selling us out.

    I am a CITIZEN of the United States. As such, I love my country. I do not hate anyone; but I hate evil as God commands all believers to do (Psalm 97:10; Ephesians 5:11). There is not a more vile evil in America today than the Socialist policies Barack Hussein Obama will implement over the next few years in America.

    Respectfully, Obama has lied repeatedly to America and works for the New World Order elite, who hate America. They hate the God of the Bible, Christianity, patriots and the traditional family. Obama promised not to raise taxes; but he did. Obama promised not to propose any laws without first notifying the American public; but he has been secretive about many news laws. Obama broke his campaign pledge not to hire Wall Street insiders; but he has. Obama promised to bring the troops home; but he has sent more. Just like many politicians, Obama promised the rainbow; but delivered something very different. Obama promised change for the positive; but we are experiencing change for the worse.

    Some have questioned whether Obama is a Communist or not? I can tell you by definition of the word “Communism” that HE IS. One of the definitions of the noun Communism is “a socialist who advocates Communism.” Obama is an Anti-American, God-hating Communist wrapped in a smile. Obama was not elected; he was chosen and placed into office. I am not saying that Barack Obama is the Antichrist, but it is a Biblical teaching that high political positions will be given by Satan in the End Times… Revelation 13:2b, “and the dragon [Satan] gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” The Antichrist will have great authority. It is very interesting that President Obama is the FIRST U.S. President to ever be made chairman of the United Nations Security Council (a violation of the U.S. Constitution). CNN reported that Obama has been called “The President of the world.” Certainly, the overwhelming international public support of Barack Obama is arguably a form of worship.

    • @BAFBFP

      Being Black in America in 2012 has become very complicated. We are not in physical bondage all have to admit but you may recall the cry from Bob in Emancipation Song.

      BTW can any one explain why Romney is outpacing Obama in campaign donation although he is trailing in the polls? We are not talking about CADRES polls…lol.


  20. ….”Some believe that there are tycoons withholding $ 3 trillion from the money supply in order to topple the Obama regime and restore the status quo.”…what is your spin ?”

    You are sadly mistaken if you think that mr Obama could have become President if he were not part of the statu quo. The keen observers would recognise how quickly Mr Obama jettisoned the initial agenda which captured the imagination of the marginalised and those disgruntled with the statu quo.


  21. “In Orwell’s ’1984,’” says Whistleblower Editor David Kupelian, “a tyrannical future government maintains power with the help of a powerfully manipulative language called ‘Newspeak,’ featuring propaganda slogans of the ruling political party – like ‘WAR IS PEACE,’ ‘FREEDOM IS SLAVERY’ and ‘IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH”
    The Cuban people have long been the recipients of this kind of manipulative propanda which leads them to believe that there is “Eyes and ears everywhere”. All over cuba , walls and government buildings are replete with belligerent slogans. Fidel this, Fidel that.

    All, comimg together, EVIL personified, Anti-God, Anti-Christ, exactly as prophecied in God’s Word, the Bible!”


  23. balance, in your list above you forgot to list the US Republican Party. Isn’t Romney, the Republican presidential candidate, a Mormon? Does Jesus save Mormons, followers of the false prophet Joseph Smith, practitioners of Masonic inspired temple ceremonies and holders of heretical beliefs – e.g. the belief that you cannot correctly interpret the Bible without the later teaching and revelations of the Joseph Smith provided Book of Mormon and, another example, the teaching that when they die on earth, faithful Mormon men will become gods and rule over other planets in other solar systems or universes where they will also marry multiple wives in celestial marriages?


  24. There are two sets of people. A- the 1%, and B- the 99%.
    Group B are a large flock of sheeplike jokers who cannot see beyond what they are told in church, on TV or some movie.

    Group A run things… 🙂

    The system is configured such that some decisions are done by voting (LOL – almost said democratic) so that the sheep get to feel as though their opinions count HA HA HA… (a lot earlier to raise mutton that way…)

    After Goerge Bush turned out to be such a dumb lout (he was actually a ‘B’ man recruited to become an ‘A’ puppet, …it became necessary to conceive a new plan to get the sheep to vote correctly last elections.

    Solution…?

    An unknown half black man from the most cooked city on earth (outside of Nigeria), made over in the image of the diametric opposite of the disposed bush…. The sheep were ecstatic …. Obama turned out to be not much more than a black bush….(as predicted by Bushie before his becoming President)

    It makes absolutely no difference who wins the coming elections (either in the USA or in Barbados) because win lose or draw, the 1% will run things….

    That is of course, until group ‘C’ – the 0.0001% (BBE and his boys) pull the plug on the whole gambit…. LOL


  25. ‘After Goerge Bush turned out to be such a dumb lout ”
    George Bush could not have been as dumb as we make him out to be . If he can be considered dumb, then the American people have to be dumber to allow him to be not a one but two term President. By the way, Mr bush is revered by the people in Africa for his contribution to combating the disease in the region.

    • MARC FABER: If I Had To Vote For Obama Or Romney, I’d Shoot Myself
      Henry Blodget | Aug. 8, 2012, 11:43 AM | 4,666 | 17

      Email
      More

      Marc Faber, the famous investor and strategist, says that neither candidate in the upcoming U.S. Presidential election is worth voting for, at least if the goal is fixing the economy.

      In fact, says Faber, the Thailand-based author of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, if you put a gun to his head and told him to pick a candidate to vote for, he’d say, “shoot.”

      Why is Faber so negative on the two candidates?

      Because he thinks neither Barack Obama nor Mitt Romney will have the balls to do what it takes to get the economy back on track, which, in his opinion, is significantly cut government spending AND modestly raise taxes. Rather, he thinks, both candidates will just focus on remaining popular.

      Given that America will almost certainly choose one of these two candidates to be its next President, what is Faber’s outlook for the U.S. economy?

      Continued crappy growth.

      Faber’s outlook for the rest of the world, meanwhile, is even less encouraging. Europe is already in a recession, he says, and Asia’s growth has peaked and is starting to decline.

      Interestingly, Faber is not running away from stocks as a result of this dour view. Rather, he is starting to buy some stocks in Europe, because the valuations have gotten so slammed that he now finds the risk/reward profile attractive. And, with almost every government on earth trying to print its way out from under its huge debt load, Faber still remains a big fan of gold.

    • DAVID ROSENBERG: The Last Two Times Export Orders Collapsed Like This, We Were In A Recession
      Business InsiderBy Mamta Badkar | Business Insider – Thu, Aug 9, 2012 2:02 AM AEST

      Exports appear to be collapsing around the world. Data out of Germany this morning showed exports falling 1.9 percent, and South Korea, the canary in the coal mine has seen exports crumble.

      Now, Gluskin Sheff’s David Rosenberg writes that soon we’ll find “that the U.S. prints a negative-GDP reading on the back of a negative export shock that does not appear to be in any forecast”.

      He writes that 70 percent of real GDP growth since the “recovery” began three years ago has come from export volumes and inventory investment.

      Then the declining pattern of ISM export orders – which declined from 59.0 in April, to 53.5 in May, 47.5 in June, and 46.5 in July – is naturally worrisome.

      In fact, Rosenberg points out that there is an 81 percent correlation between annual growth in U.S. exports and ISM new orders, and that this level of new export orders coincided with the last two recessions as can be seen in the chart below:

      Rosenberg writes that with exports declining, slowing spending by corporations, which should impact the housing recovery, and slowing consumer spending the U.S. could see zero percent growth as early as the fourth quarter.

  33. I see PCR now has up a follow up article in much the same vein as the one at the start of this thread.

    The Next Election: High Stake Outcomes Based on Non-issues.

    snip

    What are Romney’s issues? The candidate says that his first act will be to repeal Obamacare, a program that Romney himself first enacted as governor of Massachusetts. This will cost Romney political contributions from the insurance industry, which is thankful for the 50 million new private insurance policies that Obamacare, written not by Obama but by the private insurance companies, provides at public expense. It is not to the insurance industry’s benefit to have a single payer system like other western countries.

    Romney’s other issue is to blame Obama for America’s unemployment caused by the offshoring of the US economy by Republican corporate CEOs. In order to enhance their compensation packages, the Republican CEOs sent millions of America’s best jobs to India, China and elsewhere. The lower cost of labor in these offshore sites means much higher earnings, which drives up share prices for shareholders and drives up performance bonuses for management, while wrecking US employment, GDP growth and tax base and driving up the deficit in the balance of payments.

    America’s main economic problem–the relocation of the US economy offshore–is not a campaign issue. Therefore, the US economy’s main problem will remain unaddressed.

    The real issues can nowhere be found in the campaigns or in the media. There is no mention of the Bush/Obama destruction of the US Constitution and its legal protections of citizens from arbitrary government power. Due process no longer exists for anyone who the executive branch suspects of being connected in any way to Washington’s chosen enemies. US citizens can be thrown into dungeons for life on suspicion alone without any evidence ever being presented to a court, and they can be executed any place on earth, along with whoever happens to be with them at the time, on suspicion alone.

    “.. The key question for all these Commie/ Leftie countries and types, “If that system is so fantastic then why does the Govt stop people from leaving? ”

    Look Moneybrain, why don’t we forget about the “Commie/Leftie countries and types” attack strategy? That’s a big myth people like you want to perpetuate. There are NO MORE communist states. Dead and gone if they were ever alive! Isn’t China supposed to be a communist country? In your Wall St. dreams! Pseudo-communist China is the modern day capitalistic export juggernaut with serious imperialistic designs on Africa and the backwater states like those in the Caribbean.

    The point is that Cuba poses a tremendously competitive challenge to Barbados and those tourism dependent countries of the ‘Lesser’ Antilles. With low wages, low operating costs, unspoiled charm of old Cuba with exotic sites and mannerly people and with many areas of cultural and ecological appeal, Cuba has a competitive advantage over so-called modern but definitely tired, dirty and rude Barbados. Yes, ostrich, go along with the misplaced notion of Bajans being “far better off”?

    What happens when their jobs in the tourism industry go belly up and Brits change their minds about visiting Bim that land of disappearing beaches, rudeness, crime, ZR and wuk-up culture, lound noise, pollution by vehicles, price gouging, selling of trinkets made in China passing off as “souvenirs of Barbados”? Have you seen the many properties up for sale in the tourism belt? People are getting tired of Barbados and looking elsewhere; and Cuba readily springs to mind. Just ask the Brits which is the up and coming destination for a Caribbean holiday? The answer: Cuba, the un-spoilt and unexploited Spain in the Caribbean.

    Very accurate short synopsis of our biggest tourism worry (ies). Words that we should fear, because they are true…and they have REAL impact.

    We need to address those issues, in solutions.


  36. Any thoughts about the young Ryan who Romney selected to run as running mate? He is young and has not run for any national office. A worry you think?


  37. it seems that cuba has a better and more innovative comprehension plan to not only bringing and attracting tourist but also have designed a strategic playing field that out wits and outplays it competitors


  38. regardless of who sits in the whithouse, america interest will be first even if it means going to war because of its superior military technology, As I said over and over, Iran should secure military know how to make any county think twice before it attacks. It should use its own stratgies to ensure that America does not gain a foot hold in the middle east to ite detriment.

    I have come to the conslusion that all politicians are the same, we vote for them to serve use and then they want us to serve them. I am hearing over and over a number of people saying that they are not going to the pools, It means that barbadians are becoming pissed off with politicians and so am i.


  39. balance

    I hope you hear ’bout that thing they call the “Electoral College”. One thing about the American administrators, they know how to create labels … “Coalition of the Willing” … “Collateral Damage” … “Rendition” …”Surgical Strikes” … “Homeland Security” …


  40. A former, fervent Obama supporter has a rude awakening:

    US Attorneys Refuse to Assure Judge That They Are Not Already Detaining Citizens Under NDAA

    In the March hearing, the US lawyers had confirmed that yes, the NDAA does give the President the power to lock up people like journalist Chris Hedges and peaceful activists like myself and other plaintiffs. Government attorneys have stated on record that even war correspondents could be locked up indefinitely under the NDAA. Judge Katherine Forrest had ruled for a temporary injunction against an unconstitutional provision in this law – after government attorneys refused to provide assurances to the court that plaintiffs and others would not be indefinitely detained for engaging in first amendment activities. Twice the government has refused to define what it means to be an “associated force”, and it claimed the right to refrain from offering any clear definition of this term, or clear boundaries of power under this law. This past week’s hearing was even more terrifying: incredibly, in this hearing, Obama’s attorneys refused to assure the court, when questioned, that the NDAA’s provision – one that permits reporters and others who have not committed crimes to be detained without trial — has not been applied by the US government anywhere in the world — AFTER Judge Forrest’s injunction. In other words, they were saying to a US judge that they could not or would not state whether Obama’s government had complied with the legal injunction that she had lain down before them.

    To this, Judge Forrest responded that if the provision has indeed been applied, the United States government itself will be in contempt of court. Government attorneys also, in this hearing, again presented no evidence to support their position — and brought forth no witnesses.

    I have mixed feelings about suing my government, and in particular, my president, over the National Defense Authorization Act. I voted for Obama. I even had an Obama dance; and I could not stop crying for joy and pride the night he was elected. I defended him for over two years.

    But no longer. The US public often ignores his actual failings, and more importantly, entirely ignores how, when it comes to the “war on terror”, the US government as a whole has been deceitful, reckless, even murderous. We lost nearly 3000 people on 9/11. Then we allowed the Bush administration to lie and force us into war with a country that had nothing to do with that terrible day: we killed between several hundred thousand and one million Iraqi citizens, caused vast harm to our own soldiers and gutted this nation’s treasury for a war that never should have happened. Given these crimes, it is no wonder that Bush, Obama, and the US Congress appear now to be far more interested in enacting misguided, “boogieman in every corner” “war on terror” policies that distract citizens from investigating the truth about what we’ve done, and what we’ve become, since 9/11.

    I, like many in this fight, am now afraid of my government. We have good reason to be. Due to the NDAA, Chris Hedges, Kai Wargalla, the other plaintiffs and I are squarely in the crosshairs of a “war on terror” that has been an excuse to undermine liberties, trample the US Constitution, destroy mechanisms of accountability and transparency, and cause irreparable harm to millions.

  41. Green Party presidential candidate says US political system is designed to eliminate opposition to the corporate/Wall Street agenda.


  42. Michael Savage: Obama ‘most evil’ president ever
    Warns tyranny begins with kind of rhetoric delivered over weekend
    Published: 07/17/2012 at 12:31 PM

    Any doubt Americans may have had that Barack Obama is a Marxist should be alleviated now after hearing his rhetoric in a speech in Virginia over the weekend, top talk-radio host Michael Savage told his listeners last night.

    Asserting that it is governments and not individuals who create jobs, Obama told entrepreneurs Friday: “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    “You didn’t get there on your own,” the president said. “I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.”

    After playing the audio of Obama’s remarks, Savage offered a blunt assessment.

    “So there’s communism,” he said. “That’s Karl Marx Obama. That’s Hugo Chavez Obama. That’s Joseph Stalin Obama. This is a very dangerous man.”

    Savage, noting he has studied dictatorships, recalled that tyrannical regimes “begin with innocent remarks like this.”

    “This man is the most dangerous, most divisive, most evil – I’ll use the word evil – president in the history of America.”

    Savage acknowledged he was “stepping up” his own rhetoric, because the situation requires it, and no one else will.

    “Things don’t start the way they end,” he warned, drawing lessons from history. “They start with the most innocent remarks like this.”

    The elected Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler, whose rhetoric originated with 19th century French anti-Semites, did not start with death camps but with relatively benign racial purity laws, and no one stopped him, Savage pointed out.

    “The rhetoric Obama is expressing is not his own rhetoric,” Savage said. ‘This is what is deeply embedded in the man’s brain stem. He has been inculcated with hatred for the American way from the cradle.”

    The Cambodian dictator Pol Pot, Savage recalled, “was a mild mannered professor like Obama” who went to Paris, studied Marxism “and came back a flaming communist.”

    “It ended with a mountain of skulls,” Savage said, with some 2 million people slaughtered in Cambodia’s infamous “killing fields.”

    Pol Pot, instituting what he was taught at Paris universities, unleashed his Khmer Rouge on anyone with an education – the productive people of society.

    “What does this have to do with that nice man in the White House with such a nice wife and nice children?” Savage asked his “Savage Nation” audience.

    “It starts with rhetoric like this,” he said. “It unleashes the genie in the bottle. It justifies any acts of betrayal, any acts of hatred, any acts of sabotage against the successful.”

    He called Obama “the most hateful man who has ever plagued the White House.”

    “Everything is at stake in November,” he said.

    “Unfortunately, on the other side,” Savage added, referring to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, “we have Mr. Peepers, Mr. Milquetoast, Mr. Checked Pants, Mr. Country Club, Mr. Nice Guy.

    “I’ll remind you of something else,” Savage said. “Nice guys don’t finish last, Mr. Romney. They don’t finish at all.”

    As WND reported last week, the new Talk Stream Live “Power 50,” which ranks the top talk-radio shows streaming on the Web, has Savage in the No. 2 spot.

    Talk Stream Live says it sampled more than 1.2 million listeners during the first six months of the year to produce “The Power 50 Report” – the 50 most influential talk show hosts on the Internet and on mobile devices.

    “We are proud to report that Rush Limbaugh is No. 1 and Michael Savage is No. 2,” said TSL. “These are the most listened to talk show hosts in the world.”

    Savage’s show can be heard Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time on local stations nationwide and and via the Web.

    You are a really total idiot and racist at that (without any compunction or compurgation I say that).

    What the heck is a Marxist? What is a Marxist state?
    These are Neanderthal terms that died out with the death of the USSR like the political dinosaur.
    If Obama is a Marxist then China is a Marxist Democratic State, if you get the real meaning here.
    Come on stupid, stop showing your hidden racist agenda and come clean by saying: I don’t like Obama because he has ‘nigger’ blood in him. Pure and simple!!


  44. @ Annanuki/Ralian,

    “Come on stupid, stop showing your hidden racist agenda and come clean by saying: I don’t like Obama because he has ‘nigger’ blood in him. Pure and simple!!”

    Sorry FOOL, this has nothing to do with the COLOUR of Obama’s skin, any more than Pol Pot’s or Stalin’s or Hitler’s skin colour had to do with their EVIL, WICKED, SIN stained hearts, but YOU just don’t get it, and NEVER will.

    Your FEET, Nuki/ralian, are FIRMLY planted in the ‘MID-AIR” of gross ignorance, and SPIRITUAL DARKNESS, as usual!


  45. NOT THE US GOVERNMENT WE USED TO KNOW
    White House
    (controlled by Communists

    ” Our President, Barack Obama, was a member of a radical communist party, called the Illinois New Party and/or the Chicago New Party, which has Chicago Mob and Black Communist Activist roots. He admits receiving Marxist training (Marxism is the ideology of using law as a means of oppression and control). Obama has friends whose terrorist organization bombed the US Capital, the Pentagon and the State Department, killed policemen and plans to kill 25 million people. These people may be agents of Cuba or Russia. Obama has surrounded himself with socialists-communists of similar backgrounds and has built and is building a shadow government of communists-socialists-progressives-radicals to bypass Congressional and Citizen control. Progressives are Communists. As elected leader of our country, he regularly meets with large labor unions led by known communists. He worked for an international communist organization, ACORN, now under investigation by the FBI and others. As a marxist-trained socialist and apparent narcissist, Obama’s primary goals are to eliminate capitalism and replace it with a socialist-marxist-communist program, perhaps under the direction of the Soviet Union who has been our enemy for over 50 years. Obama’s policies are leaving our nation open to attack and infiltration by communists and terrorists of dictator countries and his initiatives will collapse the US financial system as it forces us to obtain huge financial loans from other countries like communist China. Obama made the Top Ten List of Corrupt Politicians in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, with “Dishonorable Mention” on the 2006 List. Without any doubt, Obama is a Communist.”


  46. The 111th Congress’ US House of Representatives was led by a majority of Progressives (i.e., documented Socialists and Communists) and most remain in the 112th Congress. Its Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi, was also a Progressive-Socialist-Communist who made the Top Ten List of Corrupt politicians in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Of the 435 House members, at least 80 were Progressive (Socialist-Communist) Democrats, about 59 are members of the New Democrat Coalition, and about 52 are Blue Dog Democrats. Some identified as non-Progressive Democrats were actually socialists bringing the total to over 100. There are Criminal Communists (RINOs) in the Republican Party, too.

    As CBS News reported, Progressives follow Mao (NBC report example: Congressman Bobby Rush). Below you will see Progressive Representatives, involved in crime, corruption and blocking investigations into their progressive associates and their crimes. Progressives attempted to enter and refocus our US census and voting process via ACORN. Many of these socialist/communist US House of Representatives members travel to Communist Cuba frequently and meet with the Castro brothers and associates of a US-convicted Cuban spy ring. They have changed US laws to allow enable money transfer, travel and better communications with Communist Cuba and many openly praise mass murderers Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. They are working to make it easier for illegal immigrants to enter our country so they can expand their control of America via labor unions. The goal is transforming tens of millions of illegal aliens into communist union members who will vote as a block and increase communist transition funding via annual union dues. Their policies are not “freedom of religion”, but rather “no religion”. They are implementing budget-busting initiatives to redistribute wealth and convert the USA to communism. Their current policies are collapsing our US financial system. See voluminous details on each Socialist Member of Congress below.
    US Senate
    (controlled by Communists)

    Progressive-Socialist-Communists control the US Senate. In both Houses of Congress, RINOs (Republicans who behave like Socialists or who are Communist Sleeper Cells) aid Democrat and Independent Socialists.

  47. @ Zoe | August 14, 2012 at 9:09 PM |
    “EVIL, WICKED, SIN stained hearts, but YOU just don’t get it, “

    So you describe the present President of USA, a man of colour, as “Evil, Wicked, and Sinful”?
    He is also a communist. Wel,l well, young McCarthy , carry on denigrating and disrespecting the President who is a confessed Christian just like you and see if you would see your god’ face. Judge not lest he be judged!


  48. Is Obama Really a True Christian? No way!!

    Obama went to Rev. Wright’s Radical, Afrocentric, Black Liberationist theology church for 20 years; whose, ‘phoney theology’ is NOT based on the historic Christian faith from God’s Word, but, rather on the teachings and writings of the father of ‘Black Liberation Theology’ Professor James H. Cone, whose beliefs, Wright said, was “really the one who took it from my books and brought it to the church.”

    Of course, Obama distanced himself during the Presendential election campagne, from Rev. Wright’s RADICAL, LEFTIST, Black, Anti-Semitism rhetoric, BUT, Wright to the CORE* still holds to his black liberation theology beliefs, whose goals of Black Lineration theology are to turn religion* into sociology, Christianity into a political agenda, Jesus into a black Marxist rebel, and the Gospel into violent revolution, AND, it is here under Rev. Wright’s HATE-FILLED sermons over 20 years, that Obama sat and was taught this ‘another’ Heteros, FALSE Gospel!

    Is it not interesting, that Obama told Beliefnet.com in 2008, that Rev. Wright’s sermons “about Scripture” were “right on target.” Obama praised him as “one of the greatest preachers in the country.”

    Prof. Cone, says: “To be black is to be committed to DESTROYING everything this country loves and adores.”

    Such HATE-FILLED, racially exclusive theology CONTRADICTS the basic tenets of Christianity.

    it is blatantly obvious, that the fundamental IDEAS of Black liberation theology did NOT come from black thinkers, BUT, from such white European thinkers as (Karl) Marx!

    How much of Black Liberation theology influenced Obama’a thinking?

    It’s not clear where Obama’s beliefs and Cone’s diverge. But Cone suggest Obama privately follows his radical theology, while toning it down in public.

    “I don’t see anything in (Obama’s) books or in the speech (he gave on RACE in Philadelphia in 2008) that contradicts black liberation theology,” Cone said. Obama has just sanded over the “radical edge to it.”

    Obama, IS* the GREATEST masterpiece of DECEPTION, LIES, and FRAUD, ever to have been elected as President of the USA; and, expressly so choosen, by those, who agenda, are to DESTROY the American economy, REMOVE all Christian core beliefs, from schools, etc, and usher IN, the One, Anti-Christ, End-Time, World Government, and its well under way!


  49. “Very accurate short synopsis of our biggest tourism worry (ies). Words that we should fear, because they are true…and they have REAL impact.

    We need to address those issues, in solutions”

    Vey much in agreement but may i respectfully add that these problems are not unique to Barbados and like moneybrain, i firmly know not believe that Barbadians are much better off than Cubans. and yes, Mr Miller, Barbados might be tired and rude but far superior to Cuba in relation to sanitation service. When i engage visitors from North America during my visits to Cuba asto their reasons for visiting , the usual responses are that they visit Cuba beause the cost of services is cheap and i would add the women are not only beautiful but responsive and friendly.


  50. “The big talk in the USA today is that the Republicans never intended for Obama to success hence the vehemence with which they oppose his policies”

    Could we draw the same conclusion when bush was in office considering the vehemence with which the democrats opposed his policies.


  51. Barack Obama has energized the right wing hate filled machine; they will have four more years to vent their spleen.
    Let’s see:
    1) Muslim
    2) Communist/Marxist
    3) Terrorist
    4) Antichrist
    5) Foreign born
    6) Socialist
    7) Anti-Semitic
    8) Take your pick
    They even mention him in the same breath as Hitler and PoL Pot, they hated Clinton too but the language was different wonder what the difference is?


  52. @Balance

    The Democrats opposed Bush’s policies but they never tried to suppress the rights of people to vote (see attached Editorial from NYT), the OHIO policy was reversed probably as a result of the same Editorial. Every state with Republican law makers in the majorityhas brought in a 21st century version of the “poll tax” which is another way of trying to get around the voting rights act.

    Not so long ago in Barbados, we could vote or transact business without photo id ; is that still the case? ponder on that .
    Now because of my inherent racism iwould obviously wish for Obama to win back the presidency but the evidence is there to suggest or indicate that Democratic policies are more harmful to developing small countries like Barbados so there is a limit to my emotion.Americans in general both Democratic OR Republican Black or white care little about us bevause thay all view us as banana republics so i only get into the Democratic/ Republican political thing for balance not for sentiment.


  54. @Balance
    About those IDs, this is for you.
    Mr Sargeant , i never disputed your information that state legislatures or governorships under the control of republicans are seeking to introduce photo i.d to facilitate polling which is considered as a means to prevent a certain segment of the population from voting since it was not neceesary before. true, as some believe the change could predicated by an ulterior motive, on the other hand, it might not be but that aside, all i asked is if we in Barbados could presently vote or transact business without a photo i.d. Matter of fact, here, some businesses/ organisations even illegally photo copy your passport photo page and your national registration i.d.

  55. and Mr Sargeant I have never lived in the USA and i have no intentions of livingthere so while i take a keen interest in what goes on in the world, i avoid partisan involvement in American politics but what i recognise is that Democratic policies are always harmful to small caribbean developing states perhaps because they satisfy the interest of those who vote for the Democrats and i would not have named the complex in St Joseph after Eric Holder but after Mr Lloyd Smith, the veteran and outstanding representative for the parish of St Joseph IN the House Of Assembly for a number of years.
