October 22, 2012: Romney / Obama debate.

OBAMA: Governor Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that Al Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al Qaida; you said Russia, in the 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years.

Obama is determined to burn the house to the ground as he makes his exit. He wants to make things as awful for Trump and for the American people whom he hates. Punishment for ?? something I guess.

Obama is a sociopath and wants to leave a pile of shit and destruction in his wake. I am very afraid that our country and we as individuals are not going to be able to survive this purposeful malicious man.

oopsy, It's punishment to all the white people because he wants to be white and can never be no matter how hard he tries (think about it) and punishment to all the black people (yes, he hates them, too) because they keep him from being white.

Drudge called it his scorched earth exit.

So if Obama and Kerry are taking us to the edge of WW III, where is Congress? Where is Ryan? McConnell? Or is SYRIA so important to both wings of the ruling class that it's worth risking WW III over? Maybe securing a pipeline for Saudi Arabia and Qatar, a pipeline that must go through Syria to get to Europe, is worth it to our ruling class? Or maybe DENYING Russia its pipeline monopoly is worth it? Who knows? After all it's SILLY to think of our country as a republic. Where there is at least a smidgen of accountability.

DBQ, you did see where the UN is demanding the US pay reparations to blacks, in case you are still wondering what that something is. Then again, I don't know what the UN means by decades of repression, because I don't think they know what repression actually means. Further, it is a shame no one won an Academy Award for documenting the effort to document the UN's rape and abuse of children world wide. Watch out Haiti, Matthew won't be the only bad thing about to happen to you.

"Russia is holding civil defense drills for about 40 million people. Why do you think they are doing that?"

Hillary and Obama are cynically drumming up animosity against Russia. I guess they think that they can get conservative Republican Anti Trump support. When in fact they are endangering the stability between the two countries. Over Syria! I mean really. Who really gives a fuck about Syria?

Trump needs to jump on this with both feet. Hillary is a war monger. She wants to intervene in country over country just as she did as Secretary of State. Instead of putting America First.

Baby boomer Dems getting there wish of reliving the 60's. Race riots, threats of war with Russia, problems with China, and endless tribal wars in the Middle East. I guess Hillary did accomplish something when she hit the reset button. Huzzah!
