The G8 is No More - Russia is OUT

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

In The Hague, Netherlands, leaders of industrialized nations, including the United States, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Italy, have voted on March 24, 2014 to vote Russia out of the the global forum for the governments. The forum was originated in a 1975 summit as the G6, Canada was added in 1976. This comprised the seven wealthiest developed countried on Earth. Russia was added in 1998. Sixteen years later, Russia has been kicked out. Why, because Russia annexed Crimea, as they have outrightly taken a sovereign country and made it Russia. They have effectively expanded their borders to include the banks of the Black Sea. Seaports along the coast of southern Crimea, are very strategic to Russia, and is one of the reasons why President Vladimir Putin of Russia decided to take the land. The next G8 summit was to take place in Sochi Russia, but due to the isolation of Russia from the conference and the radical actions of Vladimir Putin, the next meeting of the leading industrialized nations will not be in Russia, but instead in Brussels in June 2014. The main business of the G7 is the focus on non-economic issues, such as those relating to security.
The G7 became part of what is now known as the G20 in 1999. They are a newly formed Group of Twenty (G20), with the G8 nations plus Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, the European Union, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, and Turkey participating. With the expulsion of Russia, The G20 is now G19. The G19 main purpose is a forum for global economic policy.
Continued sanctions are in place for Russia, as the goal now is to  impact the  Russian economy in hope to make Putin change his position on territorial issues.


ObamaCare Enrollment Ends on March 31, 2014

Sunday, March 16, 2014

The enrollment plan ends on March 31st for those interested in signing up for 'Obamacare'. To date, 4.2 million people have signed up. The administration predicted that approximately 7 million people would sign up. Some believe that the President has procrastinated in putting out the word that the deadline is just around the corner.
  One of the groups not engaged as they should are the Mellineals (people born between 1980 to 2000) and the Latino population. President Obama will be out in a campaign like run in order to bring up attention of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), whose sign up period has just two weeks to go. What is being seen the the Obamacare website ( is that there has been increased activity that is expected as the deadline approaches. What is noticed is that the site does seem to be handling the increased traffic. But the issue is that there may not be enough of young people to sign up to help afford the plan to protect older people who most likely will be using coverage on a more regular basis.
  Still, it is not to late to sign up, and there may be another deadline delay, if President Obama believes that it is necessary to extend the deadline to help avoid penalties for not signing up if you do not have insurance.


The Saga of Chris Christie

Saturday, March 15, 2014

I have been very patient with the issue surrounding New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. I have not reported on the New Jersey Governor before now in an attempt to focus on reporting about our Democratic President. But the ridiculousness of what Christie just said cannot go unreported.

Unfortunately for the Republican governor, he continues to make mistakes, and just recently he made a the following comment to town hall audience in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, as he calls himself "a trained lawyer.

Here is what he says, and you judge this for what you think it's worth....

"The fact is that I have 3 1/2 years as governor. I can't run again. And we can get through, muddle through the next 3 1/2 years without this crisis hitting us between the eyes. So this isn't me trying to save myself, as governor. When it really hits the fan here, I'll be doing something else. It will be someone else's job to stand here, and try to explain to you, why nothing was done, when we saw the problem coming... And the easiest thing for me in the world to do is to whistle a happy tune, go along with the characters who are saying, this isn't a problem, don't worry about it. And listen, I'm a trained lawyer. Do you know what that means? I can make up an answer at any time that sounds convincing." The crowd just laughed. Apparently the crowd he was speaking to may have been a majority Republican group... They clapped.. And then he said  "and you know, I can do that for three more years". 

Talk about arrogance..    He claims that he can continue to make up answers at any time that sounds convincing for the next three years. That's what I just calculated him to say. How about you?!?!?!!!!

As ridicules as it sounded, especially since he has incriminated himself on his own words, regarding his reputation to always tell the truth. He said it and nobody else did... In his words.. "I can make up an answer at any time that sounds convincing." He now has totally lost his reputation of telling the truth, and seriously is not eligible to even run for President of the United States if he wanted too. He outwardly admitted that he can and will convince anyone of anything at any time because he calls himself a trained lawyer.

Now let's get the the trained lawyer lie...

He said "Listen, I'm a trained lawyer. Do you know what that means? I can make up an answer at any time that sounds convincing." First is that what trained lawyers do, and that is to make up answers at any time that sounds convincing. Do you think he is also saying that he would also purposely not tell the truth if he was an acting lawer in a courtroom because he could convince anyone of the facts as he wants them to see?

First, if he truly was a trained lawyer, he would have never made that comment in public, especially allow the media to get wind of it, because now it will be all over the news especially if he makes a mistake to run for President if he is not convicted for lying about his knowledge of the George Washington bridge scandal.

The fact is, he is not a trained lawyer, but he is willfully telling his audience of this outright lie. If he was a trained lawyer, he would have real courtroom or trial experience. HE HAS NONE. A trained lawyer maybe would have a dozen or more years at it.

So now you know the truth. Chris Christie only says what he wants people to hear, and if they are listening, he will try and convince them that he is telling the truth. It is amazing to me to see such a man, that is now under so much scrutiny say the things he said, after people are just itching to hear this kind of thing to bury him.

Like I said, he just destroyed his last chances to run for President.
