Another Obama Betrayal. On August 19th, I guessed here that Obama would choose Governor Timothy Kaine of Virginia as his running mate. I gave Obama too much credit for clear thinking. He chose Joe Biden of Delaware, of whom I said:
Biden is a bore. Competent, amiable, but a bore. He has no charisma at all. ... Biden is also a Washington insider who has been in the Senate for 35 years(!). If Obama wishes to keep railing against the Old Politics, he can't very well choose as the man "a heartbeat away from the Presidency" a Beltway Boy. However, Obama has betrayed so many commitments central to his message since he (apparently) clinched the nomination that he probably feels that one more won't break him. * * *Obama made a bad choice, an indicator, again, of his habitual bad judgment. He had the option to go with someone outside the Beltway (if only by a hundred miles in the case of Governor Kaine) but chose someone firmly entrenched in Washington — for 35 years. Yes, Obama sure is hostile to the Old Politics. Now, how exactly is he going to complain about John McCain's 26 years in Washington when he chose as his running mate a man who has 35 years in Washington?
So, tho Biden would be a bad choice, he's not impossible for the Obama of today."
Obama is not to be trusted. I shall have to see if Ralph Nader will be on the November ballot here in New Jersey. If so, and the election looks remotely close here, I will have a decision to make: Nader or McCain. If Nader is not on the ballot, I will vote for McCain. I am a registered Democrat (because my party, the Expansionist Party of the United States, is at present only a party of ideas, not a functioning electoral party) and I really hate to vote Republican for anything, but when Democrats give us unacceptable choices, the only way Democrats can tell the powers that be that we're unhappy is to vote for someone else. I will not vote for the Democrat, Frank Lautenberg, for Senate either, because he's Jewish and Zionist. A website summarizes his stance thus:
New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg claims that the 3 billion dollars America gives Israel is "not a high cost" in comparison to a good relationship between the countries.Astounding. The U.S.-Israeli relationship has cost us over a trillion dollars in two wars in the past 7 years alone, plus 3,000 dead Americans in the 9/11 attacks, another 4,146 dead in Iraq, and 580 in Afghanistan; plus the attacks on the U.S.S. Cole, the U.S. embassies in Africa, and on, and on. It has poisoned relations with the Arab world and Moslem world more generally; produced an Arab oil embargo in the Seventies; and turned a billion people against us. That serves "American interests"? Bullsh(asterisk).
A good relationship is vital, Lautenberg states, to protect American interests in the volatile and violent Middle Eastern region.
He continues by saying America needs Israel just as Israel needs America and primarily good will come from this symbiotic relationship.
And what of what one might call our "national soul"? We have killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis for Israel, perhaps as many as 1.25 MILLION since the current war against Iraq began in 2003 plus more than another half million in the first Iraq war ("Gulf War") and in the hideous sanctions between the first and second Iraq wars. Oh, but I forgot. Americans don't ever count the "enemy" dead! No, only American lives matter. Because we have no decency anymore. That's what Rev. Jeremiah Wright was talking about — so of course Obama repudiated him, more of Obama's perfect judgment: all wrong, all the time. But who listens to criticisms of the United States? No, we're all rah-rah, sis-boom-bah jingoists when it comes to war and the Olympics. Mustn't think about morality. That's a downer.
Frank Lautenberg is an Israeli agent in the U.S. Senate. His country is Israel, not the United States, and he and all other American agents of Israel should be rounded up and prosecuted for treason, then beheaded and chopped up for parts for decent people.
What a terrible time in history this is, when traitors dominate the national government, in both major parties, and people won't hear of third parties. No, things are going so well with the alternation between Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Why would we want to get rid of the Zionist Twins?
(The current U.S. military death toll in Iraq, according to the website "Iraq Coalition Casualties", is \ — for Israel.)
