Obama’s Foreign Policy

By Bridgette

The NWO’s monetary policy regarding changing our dollar currency to a world currency is now being mentioned in the news. So it appears they are testing the waters to see how the public reacts to this idea right now. Good Lord, tossing out the information about a new currency, and screwing up every good relationship we have with our allies..do we even have allies now? Who might they be? Poland and Czechoslovakia are aghast! In their NWO peabrains, this transformation in monetary and foreign policy is what they think will benefit us? We should change our foreign policy completely, ignore our NATO obligations, ignore our allies, so we can bed with the dictators of the world such as those in China, Russia, and with the likes of Hamas and Hezbollah terrorists?

President Bush pushed hard and negotiated fearlessly for those anti-missile shields to be set up in Europe. Those two countries put themselves on the chopping block to side with us, believing that the US would be there for them if and when Putin advances his own agenda and fulfills his aspirations to overpower those countries once again. With this news, and interpreted as a win, Putin is flexing his muscles and will be going in for the kill.

Obama broke protocol, didn’t involve those two countries in his unilateral decision, and backed out of our US agreements because those agreements were reached during the Bush administration. The WH gave them a paltry days notice of their policy change. Their newspaper headlines are spouting their outrage and feelings of betrayal. Obama shoved two more allies under the bus without a second thought. He tossed those countries to the hungry wolf, Putin! A second slap in the face to the Poles was that this information was given to them on their 70th anniversary, a day that celebrates their independence from their neighbor, Russia. Uzbekistan celebrated their 18th anniversary of sovereignty from Russia 18 days ago on September 1. Both countries lost their sovereignty once, I hope they are prepared to go it alone, for they would be foolish to think they can depend on us.

The snake in the WH is showing his fangs, and his venom is destabilizing countries under the guise of helping diplomacy. This snake talks out of both sides of its mouth. Israel, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Georgia, Britain, Uzbekistan, Honduras…are you trusting him now? Are you seeing the snake for what it is now? The US, once respected as the great liberator and defender, will now be seen and treated differently. These countries know that Obama and his administration are not representative of the America they know. They know this viper’s days are numbered, and we’ll take back our country by the rule of law, and hopefully sooner rather than later in the voting booth. We can and will reverse any negative policies he passes that may ruin our enduring relationships. Totalitarian enslavement, so well known to the Poles, is the antithesis to our way of thinking, and Americans are waking up and fighting back. Real Americans don’t appease despots.

This group in the WH, lacking foreign policy experience, also backed the wrong horse in Hondurus, leaving them to be eaten alive by another despot, Chavez. That country rose up, and stood by their democratic constitution. They did what was right for their country, and had the strength to ignore the US calls to reinstate their lawless leader. They stood up to our WH, and knew they were right, no matter what US sanctions were threatened or imposed on them. The US is shamed for backing the wrong horse in that race.

With egg still on their face, now the ignorant, inexperienced One doesn’t think Poland or Czechoslovakia are important enough to safeguard because those two allies apparently don’t fit into His agenda. Exactly what countries do these imbeciles think are important enough to befriend?

In defense of Obama’s failing policy and legislative initiatives, his free-falling poll numbers, and the public’s lack of interest in his TV photo-ops, his minions are spouting and increasing their vitriol toward his rising opposition. The protesters are saying “No, we won’t!” and their screams are being met by the nasty cries of “racist.” They lump all of their opponents together and call them racists and other vile adjectives and accuse them of inciting violence. Obama thought he had a mandate to transform our country in un-American ways; they didn’t and they don’t. They are using every rule they know from their Alinsky playbook to defend their falling star. Those setting up the racial divide are the die-hard supporters. They are those who are trying to defend their leadership choice even though all the lies, inexperience, and treasonous ways are on full display.

Against this backdrop of ineptitude, VP Cheney, may we hear from you once again? We need you out of the hospital and healed. We need your logical, experienced, sane American commentary! Your take on our evolving political scene adds a feeling of safety, rationality, and is the bastion of clear, sane thinking for us. It gives us comfort to know that you are still watching over us in a way that we understand. In comparison to the deranged thinking and policies emanating from the Obama administration that our country is being bombarded with on a daily basis, we welcome your leadership, wisdom and seasoned talk. You talk to the right side and your words seem to push back and slow their agenda every time you are interviewed.

Perhaps it was you that asked all of the CIA directors to write the letter to the quasi president to call off the hound, Eric Holder. Perhaps you will next address their flawed, incompetent foreign policy of tossing our allies to the wolves, attacking our citizens with their out of control spending and Marxist doctrine, and make the call for maintaining our agreements with other countries. The man that was marketed to save us is doing the opposite. He is destroying us here and abroad.

Eight months into this administration, and there is nothing good happening. The US is being tested on a weekly basis. They send out giant feelers to test the waters on one thing or another. They are still trying to sink us, but we are holding on to the lifeboats for dear life! No one can point to any new policy or law that has helped our country in these long eight months; all we get is more governmental control, more redistribution of our wealth, more empty words, and more lies. Our strength and resolve will see us through these dark uncertain times, but some words from one of our experienced leaders will do much to calm our fears and keep our lifeboats afloat. We know what he can undo, we can redo and fix, and we will.

  2. Inside the Apocalyptic Soviet Doomsday Machine
    By Nicholas Thompson, Wired 09.21.09

    The technical name was Perimeter, but some called it Mertvaya Ruka, Dead Hand.

    Valery Yarynich glances nervously over his shoulder. Clad in a brown leather jacket, the 72-year-old former Soviet colonel is hunkered in the back of the dimly lit Iron Gate restaurant in Washington, DC. It’s March 2009—the Berlin Wall came down two decades ago—but the lean and fit Yarynich is as jumpy as an informant dodging the KGB. He begins to whisper, quietly but firmly.

    “The Perimeter system is very, very nice,” he says. “We remove unique responsibility from high politicians and the military.” He looks around again.

    Yarynich is talking about Russia’s doomsday machine. That’s right, an actual doomsday device—a real, functioning version of the ultimate weapon, always presumed to exist only as a fantasy of apocalypse-obsessed science fiction writers and paranoid über-hawks. The thing that historian Lewis Mumford called “the central symbol of this scientifically organized nightmare of mass extermination.” Turns out Yarynich, a 30-year veteran of the Soviet Strategic Rocket Forces and Soviet General Staff, helped build one.

    The point of the system, he explains, was to guarantee an automatic Soviet response to an American nuclear strike. Even if the US crippled the USSR with a surprise attack, the Soviets could still hit back. It wouldn’t matter if the US blew up the Kremlin, took out the defense ministry, severed the communications network, and killed everyone with stars on their shoulders. Ground-based sensors would detect that a devastating blow had been struck and a counterattack would be launched.

    The technical name was Perimeter, but some called it Mertvaya Ruka, or Dead Hand. It was built 25 years ago and remained a closely guarded secret. With the demise of the USSR, word of the system did leak out, but few people seemed to notice. In fact, though Yarynich and a former Minuteman launch officer named Bruce Blair have been writing about Perimeter since 1993 in numerous books and newspaper articles, its existence has not penetrated the public mind or the corridors of power. The Russians still won’t discuss it, and Americans at the highest levels—including former top officials at the State Department and White House—say they’ve never heard of it. When I recently told former CIA director James Woolsey that the USSR had built a doomsday device, his eyes grew cold. “I hope to God the Soviets were more sensible than that.” They weren’t.

    The system remains so shrouded that Yarynich worries his continued openness puts him in danger. He might have a point: One Soviet official who spoke with Americans about the system died in a mysterious fall down a staircase. But Yarynich takes the risk. He believes the world needs to know about Dead Hand. Because, after all, it is still in place.

  3. Brzezinski along with Soros have heavily influenced
    our foreign policy as well as our domestic and political processes. Soros’ life and how he made billons, his connection to Axelrod, Obama etc., and how he exerts power through his hundreds of political action groups is astounding. His financial monkey business almost ruined a country economically. He bought his power and exerts it now. We are living his dream, yet it is our nightmare.

    The Soros-Axelrod Axis?
    September 24, 2009

    George Soros is one of the big sugar daddies of the Democratic Party. He also is the ruler of an archipelago of so-called 527 groups that pose as non-partisan activists groups, but in fact are often hyper-partisan (such as MoveOn.Org), and are often employed by Democrats to influence elections. Soros, for years, has been the top funder of such groups.

    http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/09/the_sorosaxelrod_axis.html

    • Bridgette: Whoa. Wait a minute, girl. You can’t use the word “monkey”, anymore. What are you thinking? 🙂

      Check this out:

      We’re all racists now.

      • Toooo funny Miri, Ooops, didn’t get that message…who cares, it matters not what I say or write, it will be perceived as politically incorrect by someone. Cheers to being politically incorrrect and not worrying about it anymore. Hypocrisy lives. I oppose the president so I am a racist now. Never thought I’d ever be called such a despicable thing, now the word rolls off my back like a duck. We can’t help it if everyone else has gone quackers err crackers!

  4. Here’s another article about Obama and Carter advisor, Brzezinski

    The Brzezinski/Obama Axis

    Prof. Paul Eidelberg

    Back in 1985, I wrote an article on Brzezinski for The Intercollegiate Review. Before citing some of the more relevant passages of that article, it should be borne in mind that Brzezinski, a political scientist, served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser. One does not have to read Carter’s Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid to know that Carter is an anti-Semite. Brzezinski has earned the same reputation.

    Not only has Brzezinski publicly defended the anti-Semitic canard that the relationship between America and Israel is the result of Jewish pressure, but he also signed a letter demanding dialogue with Hamas, whose charter calls for Israel’s destruction. It behooves us to understand the mentality of Obama’s Middle East adviser.

    Long before he became Mr. Carter’s national security adviser, Brzezinski rejected what he and most political scientists term the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet political systems. “This image,” he says, “is held by traditional anti-Communists.” Brzezinski thus affirmed he is not quite an anti-Communist. In fact, he deplores anti-Communism as “a relic of the Cold War, of the age of ideology.”

    Not only did Brzezinski reject the “black and-white” image of the American and Soviet forms of government, he rejects the very notion of good and bad regimes! Brzezinski is simply a moral or cultural (or historical) relativist, and relativism has certainly modulated Barack Obama’s mentality.

    The influence of political scientists like Brzezinski is wide and deep. His relativism prompts him to negotiate with and appease terrorist regimes. With Brzezinski as his adviser, Obama will be more disposed to appease Iran and betray America’s allies, above all Israel.

    Since Brzezinski is a relativist, he denies the existence of objective or trans historical standards for determining whether the way of life of one nation, group, or individual is morally superior to that of another. (The members of the UN General Assembly must be pleased to hear this, despite the UN’s notorious record of condemning Israel without having ever condemned an Islamic state.)

    Brzezinski’s relativism also makes him a “weather-vane” political scientist. He turns with the winds of power. Working in a pluralistic and egalitarian country like America- a secular society- he conveniently adopts tolerance as his operational principle on the one hand, and equality as his primary value on the other. He is quite at home with the moral equivalency that has shaped US foreign policy toward Israel and Islamic dictatorships.

    Brzezinski views history through the lens of Marxism, which, despite its atheism, has much in common with Islam. Both Communism and Islam are universalistic ideologies that reject the idea of the nation-state.

    Both do not regard adherence to treaties between nations as obligatory. Both Communism and Islam are militaristic and expansionist creeds that do not recognize international borders.

    Brzezinski’s globalism is evident in Jimmy Carter. Under Brzezinski’s influence, Carter lowered the defense budget and pursued a soft line toward the Soviet Union. Obama is pursuing a very soft line toward Islam.

    As a crypto-Marxist, Brzezinski deplores the nation-state. His book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, declares that “With the splitting and eclipse of Christianity man began to worship a new deity: the nation. The nation became a mystical object claiming man’s love and loyalty. The nation-state along with the doctrine of national sovereignty fragmented humanity. It could not provide a rational framework within which the relations between nations could develop.” Brzezinski sees the nation-state as having only partly increased man’s social consciousness and only partially alleviated the human condition.

    “That is why Marxism,” he contends, “represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing and man’s universal vision.” Marxism, he says, “was the most powerful doctrine for generating a universal and secular human consciousness.” Embodied in the Soviet Union, however, Communism became the dogma of a party and, under Stalin, “was wedded to Russian nationalism.”

    Although Brzezinski poses as a humanist, he makes a most inhumane statement by saying that: “although Stalinism may have been a needless tragedy, for both the Russian people and Communism as an ideal, there is the intellectually tantalizing possibility that for the world at large it was a blessing in disguise.” Brzezinski could as readily say: “Yes, Muslims slaughtered more than 200 million people, but Islam brought hundreds of Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian, Hindu, and Buddhist communities under a single universal vision, that of the Quran”!!!

    Brzezinski, a self-professed secularist, is an internationalist whose moral relativism contradicts the moral law or natural rights doctrine of America’s Declaration of Independence. His relativism and internationalism contradict the teachings of the America’s Founding Fathers, who endowed the United States with a national identity and character, the same that animated Abraham Lincoln. To put it more bluntly: Brzezinski’s political mentality, like that of countless other American academics, is anti-American. An Obama-Brzezinski axis has revolutionary significance. It may accelerate the de-Americanization and decline of the United States.

    • Zbigniew Brzezinski is one of the very influential people behind Barack Obama. Brzezinski may have even played a role in grooming Obama and getting him into Harvard Law School. In my opinion, it appears that Brzezinski is one of the “puppet masters”. Look very closely at Brzezinski as a crypto-Marxist and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission.

      The Trilateral Commission is a private organization, established to foster closer cooperation among the United States, Europe and Japan. It was founded in July 1973 at the initiative of David Rockefeller, who was Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations at that time. The Trilateral Commission is widely seen as a counterpart to the Council on Foreign Relations…

      Speaking at the Chase Manhattan International Financial Forums in London, Brussels, Montreal, and Paris, Rockefeller proposed the creation of an International Commission of Peace and Prosperity in early 1972 (which would later become the Trilateral Commission). At the 1972 Bilderberg meeting, the idea was widely accepted, but elsewhere, it got a cool reception. According to Rockefeller, the organization could “be of help to government by providing measured judgment.”

      Zbigniew Brzezinski, a professor at Columbia University and a Rockefeller advisor who was a specialist on international affairs, left his post to organize the group…

      Brzezinski was the author of the book Between Two Ages, which was published in 1970, in which he called for a new international monetary system, and it was considered to be the ‘Bible’ of the Trilateralists. On page 72, he said: “Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief.” He called for “deliberate management of the American future” (pg. 260), a “community of nations” (pg. 296), and a “world government” (pg. 308). He became its first Director (1973-76), drafted its Charter, and became its driving force.

  5. Soros is pure evil.

    He was a Jewish kid who helped Nazis empty possessions and furnishings from houses vacated by Jewish people who were sent away to concentration camps.

    Sick, sick. He should be prosecuted as a war criminal.

    • For sure. I brought this up months ago, and somebody chastised me by telling me that Soros is Jewish. Well, there’s Jewish and then there’s Jewish. I don’t think he qualifies if he aided and abetted the Nazis. Which he did. Undisputed; he admits it, besides. You know, paraphrasing, “if I didn’t do it, somebody else would have, so why not benefit from it myself?” What sort of “morality” is that?

    The Perestroika Deception
    By John Griffing

    The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record…The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends.
    – Dimitri Manuilski, Prof. at the Lenin School of Political Warfare in Moscow, 1930[1]

    The Cold War is over and Communism is a non-issue for most Americans. Communism is such a non-issue that Communist plans to undermine American society have proceeded for years virtually undetected and unhindered. Recent events have aided this process, with President Obama’s aggressive drive toward Socialism fitting neatly into decades of Communist strategy.[2]

    That long and patient strategy of deception was developed in the halls of the KGB, and dutifully carried out by Communist subversives in the United States. Prominent KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn has called it the “perestroika deception.”[3]

    According to KGB documents published by Golitsyn, “perestroika” and “glasnost” were always intended from the beginning to serve as a media ploy to deceive the West into lowering its defenses to the point where Soviet goals could proceed unchallenged. Of Golitsyn’s 194 predictions, 139 had been fulfilled as of 1993.[4]

    Even former Soviet Premier Gorbachev, the eventual face of these policies, later acknowledged their true nature: “The decision to launch a new economic policy, which substantially widened the notions of socialism and the ways of building it, was imbued with profound revolutionary dialectics.”[5] Translation: world conquest will proceed as planned. The “revolutionary dialectic” is a tactic that has been employed throughout Soviet history. The word “glasnost” appears in Lenin’s writings 46 times.[6]

    In his book, Perestroika: New Thinking for Our Country and the World, Gorbachev said outright, “Perestroika is closely connected with socialism as a system.”[7] Answering those asking, “Are we giving up socialism?” Gorbachev replied, “Every part of our program of perestroika…is fully based on the principles of more socialism….”[8] Gorbachev has even been as blunt as calling perestroika a “continuation of the October Revolution.”

    The “perestroika deception” worked like a charm. American leaders were all too eager to pronounce the end of the Cold War. Then President George H.W. Bush declared, “We live in a time when we are witnessing the end of an idea — the final chapter of the Communist experiment.”[9] President Bush went on to spearhead a guns-to-butter policy resulting from this “peace dividend,” culminating in a massive diversion of military spending to social programs. From 1989-2004, military spending as a percent of GDP dropped from 6.2 percent to a scant 2.9 percent. Over the same period, entitlement spending went from 28 percent of federal outlays to nearly 40 percent.

  7. WW II Battleship sailor tells Obama to shape up or ship out !

    This venerable and much honored WW II vet is well known in Hawaii

    for his seventy-plus years of service to patriotic organizations and causes

    all over the country. A humble man without a political bone in his body,

    he has never spoken out before about a government official, until now.

    He dictated this letter to a friend, signed it and mailed it to the president.

    Dear President Obama,

    My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

    I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

    One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

    So here goes.

    I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

    I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.

    You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:

    ” We’re no longer a Christian nation”

    ” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even
    announced to the world, ” America is mean-spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

    I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

    After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

    Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

    I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

    Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

    Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue . You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

    And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

    One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

    You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.

    You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

    And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.

    Sincerely,

    Harold B. Estes

    This has a picture of him also.Tough as nails this man is, and loves America!
    I got this today from old friends.

  8. What a patriot and telling it like it is! May Harold B. Estes live to see the anti-American renters in the WH and his ilk removed from office!

  9. Something to ponder…Can a Muslim be a real American?

    In light of the murders at Ft. Hood by a Muslim Officer (who had sworn to defend the people, our Constitution and the United States ) this article becomes more timely and real than ever;
    I sent that question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:

    Theologically – no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia

    Religiously – no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except Islam.

    Scripturally – no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam and the Quran (Koran).

    Geographically – no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.

    Politically – no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and Destruction of America, the great Satan.

    Domestically – no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him.

    Intellectually – no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically – no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. Because when we declare “one nation under God,” the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

    Therefore after much study and deliberation….perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both “good” Muslims and good Americans.

    Note: I believe this is from a blogger at Citizen Well’s. I will find the citation for the H/T.

  10. A German’s Opinion of Obama’s Speech to the Nation and Cadets. Snips

    Searching in Vain for the Obama Magic

    President Barack Obama’s Tuesday speech left a bad taste in many mouths.

    Never before has a speech by President Barack Obama felt as false as his Tuesday address announcing America’s new strategy for Afghanistan. It seemed like a campaign speech combined with Bush rhetoric — and left both dreamers and realists feeling distraught.

    One can hardly blame the West Point leadership. The academy commanders did their best to ensure that Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama’s speech would be well-received. Just minutes before the president took the stage inside Eisenhower Hall, the gathered cadets were asked to respond “enthusiastically” to the speech. But it didn’t help: The soldiers’ reception was cool.

    Just in Time for the Campaign

    For each troop movement, Obama had a number to match. US strength in Afghanistan will be tripled relative to the Bush years, a fact that is sure to impress hawks in America. But just 18 months later, just in time for Obama’s re-election campaign, the horror of war is to end and the draw down will begin. The doves of peace will be let free.

    The American president doesn’t need any opponents at the moment. He’s already got himself.

    http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,664753,00.html

  11. I heard only excerpts of the speech and read parts that were excerpted in the paper. What amazed me, but shouldn’t have, was how EVERYTHING was about HIM and the sheer number of sentences that began with “I”.

    • Boringgggggggg ..it was bland, and uninspiring. He had to keep reminding “himself” that he was the CIC and president. He must be getting the message that millions don’t accept him as either one. He tried a new approach and memorized a few lines so he could look directly into the camera..straight ahead. It was to weird. What a joke that the cadets were given orders to applaud…what happened to the staged props he had before? Maybe nobody signed up.

  12. Just found this article. “The New World Order came into being at 4:25 Tuesday afternoon.” Hmmm, guess I was busy that day and missed it?! You guys catch it???
