I’ve really begun to wonder if Obama has done more damage to America than Bush did. Here’s Obama’s lies about Snowden when ask about a pardon.

Obama weighed in on the matter on Friday. During his European tour, he was interviewed by Der Spiegel—the largest newspaper in Germany, a country where Snowden is particularly popular. After discussing a wide range of issues, he was asked: Are you going to pardon Edward Snowden?

Obama replied: “I can’t pardon somebody who hasn’t gone before a court and presented themselves, so that’s not something that I would comment on at this point.
And it’s total bull. Ford pardoned Nixon before he was charged and Carter pardoned the Vietnam draft resisters en mass without charges or even identifying them. This mass spying which will probably continue under Trump and surely would have continued under Clinton is why the voters gave the government the finger in this last election. The NSA spying is a crime against humanity creating a single point of failure for civilization. Bush and Obama should be the one’s going to jail. Snowden is a hero.

No matter who won it would be a disaster. This election was all about selfishness and personal ambition and greed. The truth was push aside for sensationalism to generate eyeballs for the press to market to advertisers. I would have felt a lot better if it were Biden vs. Romney, but instead it was bring in the clowns.

On the positive side Trump could end up being a great president if he did it right. Nut he has no experience in public office at all and he’s going to have to totally fake it. He’s likely to be surrounded by people with their own ambitions and agenda and he going to be clueless as to what to do. The most likely outcome is Apocalyptic Disaster.

Not only is Trump clueless but he’s barely able to contain his bizarre personality. Under the pressure of a real job he’s likely to melt down and go back to pussy grabbing and personal grudges. And there’s a good change he’s just going to up and quit like Palin did, leaving the country to Mike Pence to restore the Dark Ages.

All the things he promised in the campaign were all lies, and that’s a good thing. He is obligated to no one. The Dems hated him and the Republicans stabbed him in the back. So there’s potential to take his independence and do something great. And I hope he does because otherwise – we;re all f**ked big time.

If I were Trump I’d find the best Dems and Republicans and put together a party splitting coalition that would break the Dem/Repub gridlock. I’d have people like Romney, Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Orin, Hatch, John McCain, Chuck Shumer, Ron Wyden, all former presidents, and other’s who would form a team to figure out Trump’s single real promise – to make America Great Again.

Such a move could actually turn things around. I doubt he’s going to do it or anything that makes sense. And I think we’re totally screwed. This is what happens when you turn your back on reality. And America is going to have to pay the price.

One thing I predict is that what will happen will be a surprise to everyone. No one can predict what will happen so all of those who think they know are all wrong. Even though I’m an Atheist, we can only pray that things aren’t going to be as bad as they are likely to be. Unless we get it together, this could be the crash of global civilization. It is my hope that all of us rise to the challenge.

In a close election one could point to any small factor and say “if not for this Hillary would have won.” But it’s not Jill Stein, or Colmey, or any number of marginal factors. The real factor is the big reason. It’s Hillary’s bad judgement. This race shouldn’t have been close.

Back in 2008 America voted for change. We were in the middle of the Bush disaster and the economy was falling apart. Hillary was passed up for some unknown mixed race guy named Obama who didn’t even exist before 2004. That’s was a clue that people wants something different and Hillary wasn’t it.

But Hope and Change turned out to be just a slogan and all those on the left figured out that Obama was just a half black George W. Bush and we were all suckered. We went from strong and stupid to weak and stupid, and Hillary joined in to share the credit for the Obama disaster. 

8 years ago Obama ran on the “Change” slogan. But Hope and Change became Nope and Same. His presidency was more like a 3rd and 4th term of Bush, and it was a disaster. Killing bin Laden was about the only thing he got right. Obamacare is better than nothing – but not a lot better.

People wonder why Hillary lost. It was in a big part because Obama was such a poor president. (Article about Hillary being responsible for her own loss coming.)  But the bottom line is – Hillary was the candidate of more of the same. Trump is change that we can believe in. Change to what is a mystery, but whatever happens, it will be different.

As to Trump’s campaign slogans – they were just slogans and just because he said it has no bearing on if it’s true or not. Everyone who thinks they know what Trump is going to do is wrong. Everyone! We can only hope that he isn’t as bad as what I think he’s likely to be.

We can only hope this is true.

Very good video.

Amazing guy! Snowden is my second most favorite person in the world.

While some pundits are declaring the Clinton political dynasty dead, sources tell us that it is far from over. Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for the New York seat held by Rep. Nita Lowey.

Chelsea could run for the seat in NYC’s 17th Congressional District once Lowey, a respected, 79-year-old career politician with nearly 30 years in office, decides to retire, we have exclusively learned.

Lowey’s district includes parts of Rockland and Westchester counties and, conveniently, Chappaqua, the Clinton family home base.

In August, Hillary and Bill Clinton purchased a home next door to their primary residence in Chappaqua for $1.16 million, which is intended for Chelsea, her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, and their two children, Charlotte and Aidan.

While Chelsea currently lives, and is registered to vote, in Manhattan, she could easily make Chappaqua her legal residence in order to run for Lowey’s seat when it becomes vacant.

Too soon?

Hopefully the Dems will get it that you don’t stick with a loser. Donna Brazile who helped Al Gore lose the 2000 election to Bush was also instrumental in bringing down Hillary Clinton as well. Donna Brazile was the one with the brilliant idea that Gore should distance himself from Clinton helping Gore snatch defeat out of the mouth of victory. This time she was caught cheating for Hillary by sneaking her debate questions ahead of time. The Democrat primary was in fact a rigged election. Some say, “Clinton would have won anyway even if the Democrat party didn’t rig the election”, but that backfires when people are just plain tired of the rigged system.

Huffington Post had this interesting article on the failure of Donna Brazile.

People are blaming Wikileaks Julian Assange for getting Trump elected and Clinton defeated but it really isn’t his fault. Like Edward Snowden one can question the publication of secrets but no one is accusing the information released as untrue. Obama has been at war with the First Amendment and has put out a death warrant for Assange and Snowden for telling the truth.

More than any other president Obama has been obsessed with secrecy and going after leakers, spying on the press, and has a war on free journalism. And now it’s come back to bite him in the ass.

Obama extended the Bush Administration government spying program that would have continued under Clinton. This government spying on everyone is like a cancer on the mind of humanity itself. One could argue that stopping Clinton might actually have been a batter choice compared to electing a madman as president. But Clinton and Obama have no one to blame but themselves and their poor judgment in going after Assange and this time the whistle blower defeated the oppressor.
