“Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens
enjoy real democratic rights. Now, I want you to stop for a second and think about that.
Of those 300 million Arabs, less than one-half of 1 percent are truly free and they’re all
citizens of Israel. This startling fact reveals a basic truth: Israel is not what is wrong with
about the Middle East; Israel is what is right about the Middle East.”

I fully expect Iran to pull some stunt in the next couple of days because they know that sanctions are on the way. I think we will see something coming up in the next 24 to 48 hours where Iran says, ‘Wait a minute, wait a minute, look at what we’re going to do now. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, June 6, 2010
Secretary of State Clinton has got it right.
Barron’s reports today (May 1, 2010) that analysts think the Greece bailout could eventually cost [euro] 200 billion to [euro] 250 billion over five years and the analyst states “The reality is, they need to default.” The population of Greece is around 10 million people which means a bailout of 20,000 to 25,000 Euros per person in Greece – which is US$26,000 to US$33,000 per person.
Where will the money come from? Much of the money for a bailout of Greece will come from the IMF. The question then become where will the IMF get the money and the answer is from its members and which member has the largest, by far, contribution? The United States. The United States pays three times more than the 2nd nearest contributor (37149 SDRs vs 13312 SDRs for Japan and 13008 SDRs for Germany).
The United States will be repaying a lot of the profligate spending by the Greeks. Then Portugal, Spain, Italy and Ireland. This will encourage poor decisions in other countries because they believe the United States will BAIL THEM OUT. It is bad enough we had to spend 100s of billions of dollars bailing out car companies and Wall Street firms, it is even worse to spend it overseas.
The United States should stop the bailouts of other countries immediately. $30,000 per person in Greece is crazy. What could you do with that much money?
MSNBC Headline: “Law Makes it a Crime to be Illegal Immigrant.” Yes, MSNBC is that stupid.
The definition of IRONY:
U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women’s Rights … “handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged ‘immodest.'”
Former President Clinton says he understands “anti-immigrant sentiment” because it is “white, male factory” workers who are out of jobs. Way to pull the race card Mr President. Only a true racist thinks it is about race.
Here is a clue F.P. Clinton, it is ANTI-ILLEGAL immigrant sentiment. They are BREAKING THE LAW. It is a difficult concept to understand for some people, but they are ILLEGAL BECAUSE THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW. It is not an immigration problem, but an ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION problem. Too bad F.P. Clinton has to distort the issue and can’t debate the issue on the merits. One would expect better from a former President. Except perhaps F.P. Clinton. Divide and conquer is the strategy.
Here is the full quotation:
The real reason there’s anti-immigrant sentiment is if you look at the numbers. It’s white male factory workers without a college degree got killed in the last decade. Men, in terms of their real wage loss, suffered even more than women did. Clinton, April 28, 2010
The United States is only one superpower. Today they lead the world. Nobody has doubts about it. Militarily. They also lead economically but they’re getting weak. But they don’t lead morally and politically anymore. The world has no leadership. The United States was always the last resort and hope for all other nations. There was the hope, whenever something was going wrong, one could count on the United States. Today, we lost that hope.
