Bush – Self-deceived or Deceiver

Bush - Miss Me Yet

Danny Jeffrey has posted “Middle East Problems … Only Beginning”. This is an awesome article about the Foreign Policy failures that afflicted three Presidential Administrations: Bush 1, Bush 2 and Obama.


I concur with Danny’s observations except perhaps with one small disagreement. Danny is critical of the Bush 2 agenda to implement democratic-republic forms of government in the Middle East with the belief that doing so would create better potential allies if voting citizens could make choices via elections to promote Human Rights and a better atmosphere for an economic-political situation to thrive benefitting the prosperity of the voters.


At the time I was 100% behind the Bush 2 Agenda to bring a democratic-republic form of government to the Middle East. Bush’s reasoning that nations that had experienced 25 to 50 years of oppression under Marxist/Leninist Communism began a freer life with Liberty’s benefits after the fall of the former Soviet Union.


The problem of nation-carving that Bush 2 (and to my chagrin) ran into was theo-political Islam. A monolithic religion patterned after the conquest paradigm manufactured by Islam’s prophet Mohammed. Unlike other religions Islam’s eventual holy writings lay out the principles that combine religion, politics and martial evangelism. Islam’s religion, politics and martial evangelism are all integrated on a unified basis as a platform to govern the lives of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The non-Muslims allowed to live had to approve living an oppressed life as second class human beings surrendering any right of religious freedom and political freedom to the superiority of Islamic tenets. Any violation of those tenets by non-Muslims was and is regarded as an insult or an affronter to Islam and Mohammed.


For hundreds of years Islam was the minority religion in the Middle East, North Africa, conquered portions of Europe and India. Where Islam remained in control you can figure out why people began to convert to Islam making the indigenous religions the minority.


With a thousand years of Islamic Supremacist theo-political ideology ingrained into the conquered nations and tribes of people, it is fairly clear the reason why Bush 2’s democracy planting has not worked or when it did work the people chose Islamic Supremacism via the cultural implementation Sharia Law as the basis as the rule of law. Sharia and democratic-republic political structure are diametrically opposed to each other.


Bush 2’s error was not backtracking on this realization concerning Sharia and democracy. Rather President George W. Bush began either self-deception or overt deception to Americans by choosing to tell us that Islam is a religion of peace. Of course those tagged as Moderate Muslims affirmed Bush’s pronouncement of another peaceful Judeo-Christian-like religion as in Islam was and/or is true. This assertion of peace is propagandized to non-Muslims even though Islamic holy writings indeed advocate violence against non-Muslims and against Muslims that broke Sharia or apostatized.


Like Danny I was also under the sway of former Secretary of State Condi Rice’s Foreign Policy intellectualism. It has become apparent that Rice is akin more to Establishment Republicans and RINOs than to the principles of the Conservative base of the GOP. Let’s face it. The only reason the Republican Party exists as a political entity is because Conservative voters are the power base. The Establishment GOP and the RINOs have united to call the shots within the Republican Party via control of the purse strings. These elitists of the GOP pander to Conservatives to remain a political force in the USA. Condi Rice is a part of those elitists in the GOP.


Otherwise I am in complete agreement with Danny Jeffrey’s “Middle East Problems … Only Beginning”.

The Mess and how Obama inherited it

This Chain Email tells the truth that Bush is not the total blame for the economic crisis that President Barack Hussein Obama “inherited”. I have maintained that Democrat majorities in Congress refused to Republican efforts to reform Freddie and Fannie, the taxpayer supported moneylenders for housing for poor people.


Freddie and Fannie made loans to people that had no resources to keep the loans up. The bad loans crashed Freddie and Fannie and started the dominoes to fall on other “too big to fail” corporations.


Here are a couple of videos validating Chain Email:


VIDEO: Democrats Blocking Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Reform


VIDEO: Timeline shows Bush, McCain warning Dems of financial and housing crisis; meltdown


The next time you hear Obama blame Bush for the America’s financial mess in defense of making it worse, remember it was the Democrats that had the biggest hand in the financial crisis origination.

A short history lesson to set the record straight!!!

Begin forwarded message:


The Mess and how Obama inherited it – read it slowly and let it sink…


This tells the whole story, why Bush was so bad at the end of his term.


Don’t just skim over this, it’s not long, but read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out!


The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3rd 2007, and the day democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.


The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.


For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is “Bush’s Fault,” think about this:


January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:


§  The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77


§  The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%


§  The Unemployment rate was 4.6%


§  George Bush’s Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH


Remember the day…


January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.


The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?




Unemployment… to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!


Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie – starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.


And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie?


OBAMA and the Democrat Congress


So when someone tries to blame Bush…




Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.


Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.


In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.


For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.


And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.


If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.


If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.


In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th. 


There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
