He Fought the Wars and the Wars Won

What George W. Bush loved best about his job was being a war president. Playing war, that is, as opposed to making war like a grown-up. Remember him strutting onto that carrier in his little flight jacket? You never saw Eisenhower, a real general, playing out his martial fantasies this way. You can take the drink out of the drunk, but you can’t take the swagger out of a fool.

Baron Rothschild shares most people’s view that there is a New World Order. In his opinion, banks will deleverage and there will be a new form of global governance.

With every cruel and unusual punishment meted out against West Bank villagers, Israel is fomenting more and more hate against its own people.

"When Israel was first created, I had a lot of admiration and respect for the Jews; now I want to throw them all into the sea."

Katrina Diaspora & Electoral Cleansing

Louisiana has been a swing state for some time, in which Democrats were dependent on the black majority in the state’s largest city to win.
