Seven days of protests in Egypt and still no clue as to what is going to become of it all. It is reported there will be a million person march Tuesday and a general strike has been called throughout the nation. It seems the people of Egypt want the dictator Mubarak out, and they are not going to settle for anything less, which begs the question, if Mubarak steps down who is going to step up to lead the country until elections can be held.
The Egyptian military is definitely the prominent power but if it is not being controlled by a civilian authority that would leave the Egyptians with a military dictatorship, which is essentially what they are trying to get away from. It is hard to believe that those who planned the revolt, which has thus far been successful, did not have a contingency plan in the event that they succeeded.

The United States has a $1.4 trillion budget deficit and economists are saying we simply cannot afford to spend anymore. If that is true why are we paying to quarter troops in Japan, Germany, South Korea, and in all reality 150 countries around the world? It has recently been brought front and center that Egypt is the second largest recipient of US foreign aid at $1.55 billion per year. And of course the chosen people of Israel are number one at $3.175 billion per year. That is $2.775 billion in military aid coupled with; get this, $400 million in economic aid. People, our economy is worse than Israel’s so why is this treasonous government borrowing money in our grandchildren’s name to give to the Israelis? Evidently because they are entitled to it.
Today marks the 6th day of protest in Egypt and once again the protesters have defied the government imposed curfew. It is presently being reported that 100 are dead and 6,000 have been injured in the riots.
Egyptian dictator Mubarak met Egypt’s Defense Minister today as American made tanks filled the streets and American made fighter jets and helicopters filled the sky. Mubarak is still refusing to step down and the people are still demanding that he do so. Continue reading “A 6th Day of Rioting in Egypt”
President Obama, in a speech on Friday, said that the people have rights, the right to be heard and have their issues addressed. He went on to say that to ignore these rights is to invite the people to legitimately rise up against their government. He further indicated that he supported such uprisings by the people when their adverse conditions are being ignored. Of course Obama was not talking about the 99ers, or even the people of United States, but rather the people of Egypt.
President Soetoro is not only a two bit liar but a hypocrite to boot. He talks about his solidarity and support for the people of Egypt who have been ignored by their totalitarian government to the point that they are rioting and being shot down in the streets. But when it comes to the people of the United States he is projecting a double standard. Continue reading “Egyptian Style Rioting in America?”
Protests continue in Egypt today as president Mubarak is still refusing to step down. Mubarak did however, in addressing the situation, fire his cabinet and nominate one of his top security agents for vice president. Egyptian troops have replaced the police in the streets in all but one sector wherein they are guarding the Interior Ministry in downtown Cairo where several people were shot when the crowd tried to advance. It is reported that 68 people have been killed and 2000 wounded to date.
When the riots first began it was believed that they would have little or no impact on the U.S. economy. However this scenario seems to have changed dramatically as it is now being reported that we will be seeing price increases literally across the board. The crisis is also now being blamed for the sudden drop in the U.S. stock market on Friday. Continue reading “Egypt for Egyptians, America for Americans”
Vice President Joe Biden, in a Yahoo interview, was asked what the long term unemployed need to do. To which he responded, “Hang in there.” He also added that we should stop smoking and eat healthier and exercise in order to bring down health care costs. Joe Biden does not live on the same planet as the 99ers.
Three days until the first of February and not one single piece of legislation to help the unemployed in any way has even been introduced in the Congress. In fact the very word job is being said less and less in the mainstream propaganda. Meanwhile the filthy rich continue to steal our resources hand over fist. Continue reading “Joe Biden tells 99ers, “Hang in There””
As promised the Egyptian people unleashed. The rioters numbered in the tens of thousands in cities all over Egypt. In Cairo protesters set fire to the ruling party’s so called Democratic Headquarters while shouting, “Mubarak go to Saudi Arabia” and “We want democracy.” Evidently the Egyptian people have been experiencing the same brand of democracy that our own government is trying to replace our Republican form of government with.
At last count 400 people are believed to have been injured in the protests. Specific details coming out of Egypt are sketchy at best as the Mubarak regime has shut down all communication in an effort to stop the protesters form coordinating their events. Mubarak and company also instituted a curfew, which the protesters ignored. Continue reading “Egyptian Tanks in the Streets”
There were 454,000 new jobless claims last week. Hey no big deal, at least that is according to the mainstream propagandists. What is important are corporations continuing to make record profits and the stock market climbing to above 12,000 points. When the financial crisis hit the stock market was at 14,000, it dropped to 9,000. So what did that 5,000 drop in points represent? It was indeed the final result of the numerous Ponzi schemes being run by the off shore banks that had by that time, taken over complete control of the United States government.
How many times have you heard the mainstream propagandists and politicians say that we all will have to suffer to repair the damage? Well we 99ers certainly have done our share of suffering. But it is a natural fact that the top ten percent have not only not suffered, but have prospered in what they are calling a jobless recovery. A jobless recovery means every one recovers except the jobless. Continue reading “99ers, The Citizen Spy Network is coming to Shut us up and Take our Guns”
Nobel Peace Prize winner and Egyptian diplomat, Mohamed Elbaradei, returned to his home town of Cairo to participate in a mass demonstration scheduled for today. Elbaradei is expected to spearhead the demonstrations aimed at ousting Egyptian President Mubarack in a peaceful manner.
It is being rumored that Mubarack has fled to England as the battle in the streets of Cairo intensifies. Apparently the police are now shooting live rounds at the citizens. At present it is reported that five citizens have been killed and numerous injured. To date 860 protesters have been “rounded up”. I love the way they talk about people as if they were cattle. Continue reading “Violence Escalates in Egypt”
Well the State of the Union Address turned out to be nothing more than another campaign speech full of half-hearted promises, many of which we have already heard. And of course, no mention of the 99ers, though there did seem to be a few issues which all seemed to support.
One issue that got the thumbs up was more corporate tax cuts. Of course we all realize that when corporate tax cuts are doled out the Chinese companies in America benefit and as China is a communist dictatorship; all business in China is the property of the Chinese government. Hence corporate tax cuts in America equal more money for the Chinese government. Continue reading “The Sorry State of the Union”
It would seem that the violence sparked in Tunisia which caused the overthrow of that government has spread into Egypt as thousands take to the streets to demand that their government step down. An Egyptian airport intercepted tens of millions of dollars worth of gold destined for the Netherlands. Apparently the Egyptian government was attempting to follow the lead of the Tunisian government in perpetrating one last theft on their way out. It has not been widely reported but the Tunisian government did take tens of millions of gold with them when they left.
In numbers that have not been seen since the seventies Egyptians have taken to the streets of Cairo, shouting slogans directed against the police, the interior minister and the government, et.al. So far the violence has been kept to rocks being thrown by the protesters and tear gas canisters being thrown by the police. The fall of the government may be a foregone conclusion as the theft of the gold was being planned weeks ago. Continue reading “Violence Spreads to Egypt”
In checking the Congressional docket I see no mention of HR 6556 which would give 99ers 14 more weeks of unemployment benefits. Again the only thing being mentioned is more corporate tax cuts and incentives. The unemployed are 20 million strong or more accurately 20 million weak. For those of you who still will not accept the reality that the baby boomers were singled out for culling from the work force and comprise the majority of the 99ers, I have a question for you.
Granting the reality of the fact that the 99ers are unorganized tell me this, do our so called representatives not realize that organized or not, as individuals we are going to vote them out of office for no other reason than they have ignored our plight? Think about it, we represent 20 million votes. When in the history of our nation has 20 million voters been totally ignored? The answer is never. Continue reading “99ers – the Weakest of the Weak”
42% of businesses say they are going to hire someone in 2011. I wonder in which country the hiring will occur. 13,000 United States Post Offices are to be closed down in 2011 and another 15,000 are being looked at for cuts. Record unemployment is being seen in the face of record corporate profits. There are 19 states facing bankruptcy and either we are going to have to, or rather our grandchildren are going to have to, bail them out or they are going to make drastic spending cuts, hence jobs, pensions, and medical packages. 40 million Americans are now receiving food stamps. Property crimes are on the rise.
11 police officers were shot in the last 24 hours, four of them killed. In total, 14 police officers have already been killed in the line of duty in 2011. So what is my point? Thus far in 2011 we have lost 20 soldiers in Afghanistan, and I think that we call it a minor war. So would it not suffice to say that there is a minor war going on in our country as present? Continue reading “Will HR 6556 be Reintroduced or Not?”
A bomb exploded at Domodedovo’s international, Moscow’s busiest airport Monday. 35 people were killed and another 150 were injured in what is being called the worst suicide bombing in Russia in the past 16 years. Though no organization has taken responsibility for the bombing many writing in Russian on the Islamic website, kavkazcenter.com, praised the action. Islamic rebels have vowed to hit economic targets in the Russian heartland in an effort to bring their bombing campaign to there from the North Caucasus in the year before the Russian elections.
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who shares power in a ‘tandem’ arrangement with the less influential Medvedev, has staked his political reputation on quelling rebellion in the North Caucasus. Continue reading “Suicide Bombing in Russia”
Dateline Seattle: A missing person’s report was filed Thursday evening when record keepers in Heaven came up one short during their roll call. The case was solved when this reporter found the missing angel, one Emily ChristinaRae Shivley, six pounds, born to Christopher and Amanda Shivley. Emily was last seen being held by her grandfather like a rich man holds his gold. The grandfather’s only comment was, “I think we’ll keep her.”
The Chinese have launched a massive ad campaign in the United States depicting themselves as more intelligent, more industrious, more fiscally responsible, and all in all just plain better than Americans. This from a people that allows political dissidents to be held in cages where they are literally fattened up until a rich internationalist places an order for one of their organs, after which they are taken to a hospital, put down, and parted out. The human product is then iced down and put on a plane to Japan where the new recipient is waiting.
These are also the fine upstanding people who have a one child policy and for whole generations, kill baby girls at birth. Of course their illustrious president did admit on Thursday that they need to work on human rights in China. They must think that we have no memory and will readily accept them as the civilized people they are trying to portray themselves as being. Continue reading “Chinese Ad Campaign in America”
On the January 25, 2011 the con man Soetoro will be attempting to blow as much sunshine up the American public’s arse as is humanly possible. The event is being billed as the State of the Union Address. It could be more properly identified as the Pathetic State of the Union Address.
I am sure his speech writers, working with every bit of information provided to them through the corporate think tanks, will make this State of the Union Address the greatest attempt at polishing a turd in our nation’s history. But at the end of the day that turd will still be a turd, reeking and in need of a flush. Continue reading “99ers This Situation as a Whole Stinks”
Chinese flags line Pennsylvania Avenue as a big black limousine carrying China’s President (dictator) Hu Jintao passed by on its way to a red carpet reception at the White House being hosted by America’s communist dictator, President Barry Soetoro. During this decidedly un-American spectacle, Hu was shown an example of our government’s love for our Constitution as a company of soldiers dressed in 18th century British uniforms paraded before him. Who won that war? Obviously the British did. Or maybe the red coats suited the communist dictator better than our colonial blue would have.
Once again President Soetoro, acting on the behalf of all Americans, bowed before a foreign leader. This visit from Hu is being sold to the American people as some sort of summit. It is not. Hu came to the United States for one purpose and that was to instruct Soetoro as to how he wants his real estate to be managed. Unfortunately for the American people Hu’s real estate happens to be our country. Continue reading “The Communist Party Welcomed to America”
At last, the 112th Congress has returned to work. So have they passed any legislation that is going to get us jobs? No. Has any legislation been introduced to help the long term unemployed? Well, no. So what emergency legislation was pushed through Congress, hopefully in time to get it to the Senate, just in time to get it to the President, to save us from slipping off the edge and into the abyss of economic destruction? Well, none actually.
What was passed in Congress Wednesday was the bill to repeal Obama care. Oh, thank God, just in the nick of time. The bill is scheduled to go to the Senate where it is expected to be voted down and in the unlikely event that the bill gets past the Senate, President Obama has already said he will veto it. Being a 99er and watching this crap is akin to a drowning man watching the people on the boat polishing the rope. Continue reading “99ers Get Prepared”
