Billionaire financier and close Obama ally George Soros, who in 2009 called for the brutal communist regime ruling mainland China to “own” what he referred to as the “New World Order,” is now claiming that the Obama administration he helped put in power must “make a bona fide attempt at forging a strategic partnership with China.” If such an alliance fails to materialize, and soon, the statist self-styled philanthropist warned that another World War may be just around the corner. Citing Obama’s pseudo-treaty with dictator Xi Jinping on “climate change” as a model approach, Soros expressed hope that Obama’s final year in office could be exploited to form the “strategic partnership” he envisions with the tyrants in Beijing.
President Obama told reporters during a news conference at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in Germany on June 8 that success against ISIS forces in Iraq is dependent on an “effective partnership” between Iraq and coalition partners, who must “coordinate more effectively in getting weapons in the hands of anti-ISIS forces.”
The plan is to make the TPP and other parts of ObamaTrade public prior to a congressional vote, right? Wrong! And in a classic Freudian slip, House Ways and Means Committee chairman Paul Ryan let the cat out of the bag.
CIA Director John Brennan recently told a TV news program that U.S. intervention in foreign countries can actually make the United States less safe.
The war on terrorism, which the United States has been waging since 2001, is a failure for a myriad of reasons, but chiefly because it is a farce. Setting aside the idiocy of waging war on a tactic; the war on terrorism creates terrorism by arming, training, and funding militant Islamists.
The so-called Islamic State, a brutal terrorist group also known as ISIS, seized 2,300 U.S. military Humvees and other weaponry from Iraq’s U.S. taxpayer-funded armed forces in Mosul, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi admitted in a TV interview over the weekend. ISIS militants then paraded the captured U.S. military equipment, reportedly worth over $1 billion, through the streets of the city. They then proceeded to use the American Humvees to lynch and burn Iraqi troops — many of whom had dropped their U.S. supplies and fled — before putting the vehicles to work in suicide bombings and other attacks. One of them was used on June 1 in a suicide strike in Baghdad that killed some 45 people. But the problem goes much deeper than that.
The State Department announced on May 29 that Secretary of State John Kerry had made his final decision to rescind Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, effective on that date.
