Men Made Millions Their Banks Were Bailed Out


These are the men who made millions by way of pay and bonus their banks were sinking and had to be bailed out.

This irked Obama ,who had a nasty comment for them.

In a brief appearance with advisers at the White House, Obama branded the latest round of bank bonuses as “obscene.” But he said his goal was to prevent such excesses in the future, not to punish banks for past behavior,(nbc news)

Obama Sworn In. US Presidents Inauguration Ceremonies Photo Essay


Barack Obama was sworn in as The President of The Unites States on 2o January 2013 in a simple White House ceremony.

Story:

Gathered with his family in the Blue Room on the White House’s ceremonial main floor, Obama put his hand on a family Bible and recited the 35-word oath that was read out loud by U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts.

“I did it,” Obama said as he hugged his wife, Michelle, and daughters Sasha and Malia. “Thank you, sweetie,” he told Michelle when she congratulated him. “Good job, Dad. You didn’t mess up,” 11-year-old Sasha Obama told her father.

It was a low-key start to the first African-American U.S. president’s second term, which is likely to be dominated – at least at the start – by budget fights with Republicans and attempts to reform gun control and immigration laws.

Obama, 51, will be sworn in publicly on Monday outside the West Front of the Capitol overlooking the National Mall in front of as many as 800,000 people, a much bigger ceremony replete with a major address and a parade.

Downtown Washington was all but locked down with heavy security. Many streets were closed, lined with barricades. Police sirens blared. Outside the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue, an elaborate presidential viewing stand encased in bullet-proof glass was set up for Obama and other VIPs to watch the parade.

NRA Targets Obama Family ‘Why His Children More Safe?


Abhorrent,Obnoxious Revolting.

 

Story:

 

NRA AD on Gun Control against Obama.
NRA AD on Gun Control against Obama.

The National Rifle Association pre-empted Wednesday’s White House announcement on the results of Vice President Joe Biden‘s task force on gun violence prevention byreleasing a controversial ad that targets the president’s family. Amid a widespread backlash, White House press secretary Jay Carney offered a statement: “Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. But to go so far as to make the safety of the president’s children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly.”

What got the NRA’s back up, in such controversial fashion? Well, the word on the street was that the announcement on what President Barack Obama would propose as sensible reforms to existing gun laws in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting would include a stronger background check system, a ban on high-capacity magazines and a renewed effort to pass an assault weapons ban. Naturally, the NRA, which lobbies on behalf of gun manufacturers, is not happy about any of this and released a video Tuesday criticizing Obama for being a “hypocrite” and an “elitist.”

 

“”Are the president’s kids more important than yours?” the ad asks. “Then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school?”

The ad continues: “Mr. Obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/16/nra-ad-obama_n_2487719.html

 

 

This diatribe  continues.

 

“Later today, President Barack Obama will surround himself with children, and men with guns, to continue his efforts to make it more difficult for you to purchase guns to protect your children:..

Gun Free Zones are supposed to protect our children, and some politicians wish to strip us of our right to keep and bear arms. Those same politicians and their families are currently under the protection of armed Secret Service agents. If Gun Free Zones are sufficient protection for our children, then Gun Free Zones should be good enough for politicians.

As of this writing, the petition needs exactly 2,222 signatures to reach the 25,000 threshold required for an official White House response. Just yesterday, the WH announced that the new threshold is 100,000 signatures, but existing petitions will be grandfathered in. I’d say we can manage 2,222 more signatures, can’t we?

If gun-free zones keep people safe, then I can’t think of a person whose safety is more important than the President of the United States. If having a gun in your home increases your risk of getting shot, how can we allow our president and his family to be surrounded by dozens of them? Think of the children.

Piers Morgan, Gun Control ,Deportation, Second Amendment

I understand this thus.

1.Despite Militia a well regulated…infringed”(‘despite’ being inferred) in this case the Lobbyists are Right.

2.Add a comma at after ”the Right of the people’ to read

‘A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed’

Then, the phrase ‘the Right of the people ‘ qualifies the previous caluse ‘ A well regulated..” means that it is only the Right of the Militia, being the Right of the people, whose(Militia’s) Rights to arms can not be infringed upon.

But then if people call the bearing of Arms is their Right, then let them bear the responsibility of being Gunned down.


There are several versions of the text of the Second Amendment, each with slight capitalization and punctuation differences, found in the official documents surrounding the adoption of the Bill of Rights.[5] One version was passed by the Congress,[6] while another is found in the copies distributed to the States[7] and then ratified by them.

As passed by the Congress:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.[8]

The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and resides in theNational Archives.(wiki)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

I understand this thus.

1.Despite Militia a well regulated…infringed”(‘despite’ being inferred) in this case the Lobbyists are Right.

 

2.Add a comma  at after ”the Right of the people’ to read.9this could have been omitted in the original)

 

‘A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed’

 

Then, the phrase ‘the Right of the people ‘ qualifies the previous caluse ‘ A well regulated..” means that it is only the Right of the Militia, being the Right of the people, whose(Militia’s) Rights to arms can not be infringed upon.

 

But then if people call the bearing of Arms is their Right, then let them bear the responsibility of being Gunned down.

 

Story:

 

“”There are nearly 12,000 murders a year from guns in this country. When are you guys going to focus on that, and stop telling me the answer is more guns. It is not the answer!” he exclaimed to his guest. “How many more kids have to die, before you guys say, ‘we want less guns, not more.'”

The Second Amendment. US
The Second Amendment. US

“I’m upset, because I worry that the gun control laws that you’re pushing, have killed people,” said Lott, the author of “More Guns, Less Crime.”

The man behind “Piers Morgan Tonight” saw things differently:

“Oh what a load of nonsense,” he grumbled. “I’m so frustrated, I’m so furious, that these kids, have been blown away again, with legally acquired weapons. Some boy, who’s got problems, takes his mother’s three weapons – including this ridiculous assault rifle – and goes in a school and kills these kids, and you guys on the gun lobby still want to tell me the answer is more guns. It is madness!”

These are the words of Piers Morgan on Gun Control…

n the aftermath of yet another shocking American gun incident, on Friday evening “Piers Morgan Tonight” invited in a host of experts, survivors and insightful voices, all charged with attempting to add perspective and context to a school shooting in Newtown, Conn. that cost 28 people their lives.

Hosting a live program dedicated entirely to the tragedy that left 20 young children – ranging from Kindergarten age to the fourth grade – dead within the walls of their Sandy Hook Elementary School, Piers Morgan welcomed members from both sides of the gun debate, generating a spirited discussion on the ways in which the nation should respond moving forward:

“Why on Earth would you want more guns in schools after what’s happened today,” Morgan asked Steve Dulan.’

http://piersmorgan.blogs.cnn.com/2012/12/14/piers-morgan-on-the-newtown-ct-school-shooting-how-many-more-kids-have-to-die-before-you-guys-say-we-want-less-guns-not-more/

People in The US have called for Piers Morgan’s deportation..

A petition seeking to deport CNN’s Piers Morgan for speaking out in favor of gun control has garnered enough signatures to elicit an official response from the Obama administration.

The petition on the White House’s We the People site reads:

British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens.

The “Piers Morgan Tonight” host has taken a particularly aggressive stance on the issue in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, making the case for stricter gun control laws in the U.S. and calling a gun advocate who appeared on his show an “unbelievably stupid man.”

As of 9:15 a.m. Pacific time Monday, the petition had garnered more than 38,000 signatures.

Not that any of this is fazing Morgan, however. He’s mostly taking the entire thing in stride, as evidenced by his Twitter feed.

Gawker:

Morgan spent most of the weekend laughing the petition off, tweeting at critics with grammar corrections and snarky one-liners. But as more conspicuous voices, such as that of British Donald Trump Alan Sugar, joined the rabble, Morgan’s demeanor grew more somber.

“I am also a legal resident with the same USA Visa as you. But I keep my mouth shut here,” Lord Sugar tweeted at Morgan. “Coward,” Morgan responded.

Later, after pointing out the irony inherent in a petition ostensibly defending the 2nd Amendment while ignoring the 1st, Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto added fuel to the petitioners’ bonfire by directing Morgan’s attention to Kleindienst v. Mandel — a Supreme Court ruling that barring a foreign journalist from entering the country does not violate the 1st Amendment.(truthdig.com)

The following is the position of the Second Amendment

  • A firestorm was sparked when the Constitution was proposed in 1787 without a bill of rights. Federalists and Antifederalists fiercely battled over the issue as the States began ratifying the Constitution. In the first conventions, the Federalists defeated demands for recognition of the rights to free speech, assembly, and bearing arms. But the tide turned in Virginia, where Patrick Henry and George Mason prevailed in persuading the convention to demand a bill of rights.
  • A great compromise was reached when the Federalists and Antifederalists concurred that the Constitution would be ratified subject to the agreement that the first Congress would consider amendments. James Madison did just that by proposing what became the Bill of Rights in 1787. Federalists explained that what became the Second Amendment would protect the right of the people to keep and bear their private arms, which would guard against tyranny and the evils of a standing army. However, proposals to increase state militia powers were rejected.
  • Thomas Jefferson, a life-long hunter and gun collector, wrote just before his death in 1826 that “all power is inherent in the people; . . . it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.” The understanding by his generation of the Second Amendment was clear and unmistakable—as its text states, it recognizes “the right of the people” to possess and carry arms. The Constitution defines the respective powers of the federal and state governments, but the Bill of Rights speaks largely of individual rights. If the Second Amendment is no exception, what it protects—and what restrictions government may impose—will continue to be hotly debated.”

‘Shoot to Kill’ Bin Laden Film Watch


Watch the Film on Bin laden in Channel 4 on Bin Laden and his death.

A stellar cast of White House insiders speak on camera about the operation to find and kill Osama Bin Laden, including the first – and extraordinary – documentary interview with President Barack Obama on the subject.

From the anxiety-drenched minutes in the White House Situation Room to the deadly stairwells of Bin Laden’s secret labyrinth, cinematic dramatisations take viewers deep inside one of the most important moments of our era, showing the US Navy Seals coming face to face with the most wanted man in history.

Based on high-level CIA and White House briefings, and packed with exclusive stories and fresh insights, the film reveals that President Obama received a downbeat last-minute intelligence assessment, which caused many of his senior advisors to turn against the operation.

The film is not available online in India in Channel 4 .

US Recruits Criminals,Neo Nazis and White Racists In Militray


In a recent Book Mart Kennard discusses the  Neo Nazis, Criminals and White Supremacists  being recruited in TheUS Military.

This is not news.

Irregular Army
Irregular Army By Matt Kennard.

CIA and Consular Operations regularly  recruit scums thugs and Neo Nazis and of course killers in assignment.

Here is a Sample List of Mercenaries of The US.

“http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/12/13/how-neo-nazis-and-gangs-infiltrated-the-u-s-military-matt-kennard-s-irregular-army.html

1. Ukrainian Partisans

From 1945 to 1952 the CIA trained and aerially supplied Ukranian partisan units which had originally been organisedby he Germans to fight the Soviets during WWII. For seven years, the partisans, operating in the Carpathian Mountains, made sporadic attacks. Finally in 1952, a massive Soviet military force wiped them out.

2. Chinese Brigade in Burma

After the Communist victory in China, Nationalist Chinese soldiers fled into northern Burma. During the early 1950s, the CIA used these soldiers to create a 12,000 man brigade which made raids into Red China. However, the Nationalist soldiers found it more profitable to monopolise the local opium trade.

3. Guatemalan Rebel Army

After Guatemalan president Jacobo Arbenz legalised that country’s communist party and expropriated 400,000 acres of United Fruit banana plantations, the CIA decided to overthrow his government. Guatemalan rebels were trained in Honduras and backed up with a CIA air contingent of bombers and fighter planes. This army invaded Guatemala in 1954, promptly toppling Arbenz’s regine.

4. Sumatran Rebels

In an attempt to overthrow Indonesian president Sukarno in 1958, the CIA sent paramilitary experts and radio operators to the island of Sumatra to organise a revolt. With CIA air support, the rebel army attacked but was quickly defeated. The American government denied involvement even after a CIA b-26 was shot down and its CIA pilot, Allen Pope, was captured.

5. Khamba Horsemen

After the 1950 Chinese invasion of Tibet, the CIA began recruiting Khamba horsemen – fierce warriors who supported Tibet’s religious leader, the Dalai Lama – as they escaped into India in 1959. These Khambas were trained in modern warfare at Camp Hale, high in the rocky mountains near Leadville, Colorado. Transported back to Tibet by the CIA operated Air American, the Khambas organised an army number at its peak some 14,000. By the mid-1960s the Khambas had been abandoned by the CIA but they fought on alone until 1970.

6. Bay of Pigs Invasion Force

In 1960, CIA operatives recruited 1,500 Cuban refugees living in Miami and staged a surprise attack on Fidel Castro’s Cuba. Trained at a base in Guatemala, this small army – complete with an air force consisting of B-26 bombers – landed at the Bay of Pigs on April 19, 1961. The ill-conceived, poorly planned operation ended in disaster, since all but 150 men of the force were either killed or captured within three days.

7. L’armee Clandestine

In 1962, CIA agents recruited Meo tribesmen living in the mountains of Laos to fight as guerrillas against Communist Pathet Lao forces. Called l’armee Clandestine, this unit – paid, trained, and supplied by the CIA – grew into a 30,000 man force. By 1975 the Meos – who had numbers a quarter million in 1962 – had been reduced to 10,000 refugees fleeing into Thailand.

8. Nung Mercenaries

A Chinese hill people living in Vietname, the Nungs were hired and organised by the CIA as a mercenary force, during the Vietnam war. Fearsome and brutal fighters, the Nungs were employed throughout Vietnam and along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The Nungs proved costly since they refused to fight unless constantly supplied with beer and prostitutes.

9. Peruvian Regiment

Unable to quell guerrilla forces in its eastern Amazonian provinces, Peru called on the US for help in the mid-1960s. The CIA responded by establishing a fortified camp in the area and hiring local Peruvians who were trained by Green Beret personnel on loan from the US army. After crushing the guerrillas, the elite unit was disbanded because of fears it might stage a coup against the government.

The use of Mercenaries in Katanga by the Cia  is well known.

Read the CIA operations ,now released under the Freedom to Information Act US.

So I am not surprised at the US recruiting Neo Nazis, Thugs, Criminals and White Supremacists.

At the direction of the White House and interagency policy coordination committees, CIA undertook the covert activities described below.  There were sustained propaganda efforts, including financial support for major news media, against Allende and other Marxists. Political action projects supported selected parties before and after the 1964 elections and after Allende’s 1970 election.

  • In April 1962, the “5412 Panel Special Group”-a sub-cabinet body charged with reviewing proposed covert actions-approved a proposal to carry out a program of covert financial assistance to the Christian Democratic Party (PDC) to support the 1964 Presidential candidacy of Eduardo Frei.

  • Also in 1962, the CIA began supporting a civic action group that undertook various propaganda activities, including distributing posters and  leaflets.
  • In December 1963, the 5412 Group agreed to provide a one-time payment to the Democratic Front, a coalition of three moderate to conservative parties, in support of the Front’s Presidential campaign.

  • In April 1964, the 5412 Group approved a propaganda and political action program for the upcoming September 1964 Presidential election.

  • In May 1964, following the dissolution of the Democratic Front, the “303 Committee,” successor to the 5412 Group, agreed to give the Radical Party additional covert assistance.

  • In February 1965, the 303 Committee approved a proposal to give covert assistance to selected candidates in upcoming Congressional elections.

  • In 1967, the CIA set up a propaganda mechanism for making placements in radio and news media.

  • In July 1968, the 303 Committee approved a political action program to support individual moderate candidates running in the 1969 Congressional elections.

  • As a result of 1968 propaganda activities, in 1969 the “40 Committee” (successor to the 303 Committee) approved the establishment of a propaganda workshop.

  • In the runup to the 1970 Presidential elections, the 40 Committee directed CIA to carry out “spoiling operations” to prevent an Allende victory.

  • As part of a “Track I” strategy to block Allende from taking office after the 4 September election, CIA sought to influence a Congressional run-off vote required by the Constitution because Allende did not win an absolute majority.

  • As part of a “Track II” strategy, CIA was directed to seek to instigate a coup to prevent Allende from taking office (see discussion below).
  • While Allende was in office, the 40 Committee approved the redirection of “Track I” operations that-combined with a renewed effort to support the PDC in 1971 and a project to provide support to the National Party and Democratic Radical Party in 1972-funneled millions of dollars to strengthen opposition political parties.  CIA also provided assistance to militant right-wing groups to undermine the President and create a tense environment.

47 US States Want White House Approval For Secession.Backlash.


States Want to Secede_jpg.
US States Want to Secede

As many as Forty Seven States of the Unites States have petitioned the US Federal Government for Seceding from the Union of The United States of America, the latest demand coming from Texas.

The natural tendency of the Human Beings is of course to be free.

I feel that it could be that they seem to prefer Anarchy till they revert to order.

Too much of Freedom is not good for the Society and in the long run for the individual as no Human Being is an Island.

Story:

“With more than 28,600 signatures collected since Nov. 9, a White House website petition from an Arlington, Texas man has attracted enough support to trigger an automatic review by the Obama administration.

Petitions submitted through the Obama White House’s “We the People” program “require a response” from the administration after they have attracted 25,000 signatures.

The Daily Caller reported Monday morning that since the day after President Barack Obama’s re-election, citizens from 20 states had submitted petitions asking for peaceful separations from the United States.”…

http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/13/petitions-seeking-white-house-approval-to-secede-now-come-from-47-states/

This is what the Constitution of the US says on this.

Rumors of likely secessionist movements were unleashed. There was buzz as well that some states planned to abandon the American Union and form a regional confederacy. America, it was said, would go the way of Europe, and ultimately three or four, or more confederacies would spring up. … Not only would these confederations be capable of taking steps that were beyond the ability of Congress under the articles, but in private some portrayed such a step in a positive light, in as much as the regional union could adopt constitutions that secured property rights and maintained order.[18]

Other explanations focus on the Articles of Confederation as an international agreement between sovereign states as opposed to a consolidation that “totally annihilated, without any power of revival” the sovereign states.[19] The Articles required that all states were bound to comply with all requirements of the articles. Permanence was linked to compliance. Emmerich de Vattel, at the time a recognized authority on international law, wrote that “Treaties contain promises that are perfect and reciprocal. If one of the allies fails in his engagements, the other may … disengage himself in his promises, and … break the treaty.”[20] This argument was relied on by proponents of the Constitution and was featured by James Madison in Federalist No. 43.[21]

Some argue that this secession from the Articles was a legal precedent for future secessions from the Constitution. For example, St. George Tucker, a respected jurist in the early republic era, wrote in 1803:

And since the seceding states, by establishing a new constitution and form of federal government among themselves, without the consent of the rest, have shown that they consider the right to do so whenever the occasion may, in their opinion require it, we may infer that the right has not been diminished by any new compact which they may since have entered into, since none could be more solemn or explicit than the first, nor more binding upon the contracting parties.”[22]

petition for Texas secession has qualified to receive a White House response.

As of Tuesday evening, the petition — which asks for the peaceful withdrawal of the state of Texas from the union — had racked up more than 81,000 signatures. (Only25,000 are needed to elicit an official response from the Obama administration.)

According to Politico, the leader of the Texas secession movement said the president’s reelection last week was a “catalyzing moment for his organization’s efforts to quit the United States.”

“I am completely aware that Election Day was a catalyzing moment, but I do not believe that the underpinnings of this are solely about Barack Obama,” Daniel Miller, president of the Texas Nationalist Movement told the political news website. “This cake has been baking for a long time — it’s the Obama administration that put the candles on the cake and lit it for us.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/13/texas-secession-petition-qualifies-for-white-house-response_n_2125159.html

* Figures as to the Number of States demanding Secession vary , from 26 to 47.

Related:

A recent rush of petitions to the White House’s website from anti-Barack Obama partisans hoping their states will secede from the U.S. has produced its first backlash: online petitions asking the Obama administration to exile anyone who signed them.

Two such petitions launched Nov. 12 in the White House’s “We the People” section.

“Mr. President,” reads one, “please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported.”
