Next Up! Egyptian Revolution?

Will Egypt follow in the footsteps of Tunisia?

           After 3 days of mourning for the protest victims in Tunisia many people wonder the fate of the Arab world as a whole. Protests are planned in Egypt to take place on Tuesday January 25th, they’re calling it “Revolution Day.” This could be something big for Egypt, but it could also be something horrible. It just depends on how powerful this “protest” on Tuesday is going to be. You shouldn’t expect to start a protest in a country like Egypt and not get any resistance, you WILL get resistance and lots of it. I think the biggest problem here is that if the protests don’t succeed the Egyptians will be in a worse off situation than if they never even started the protests in the first place. Mubaraks regime will just be tougher on people and try as much as humanly possible to squash any uprising in the future.

To some everything up in just a few words, the Egyptians need everything to go their way come Tuesday and it must truly be a “Revolution Day!”

 

The Guardian reports,

Tuesday’s demonstrations will take the form of a nationwide set of anti-Mubarak protests, dubbed “revolution day” by opposition activists who hope that Tunisia’s uprising will embolden the vast number of individuals like Shamad and persuade them that the time is right to make their voices heard.

“In every neighbourhood in the country there is a pressure point which the government is afraid of and which will be brought to the surface on Tuesday,” said Ahmed al-Gheity, 23, a doctor and one of the regional organisers of “revolution day”. On the event’s Facebook page, tens of thousands of supporters have posted comments suggesting Ben Ali’s departure could be the precursor for Mubarak’s downfall. “If Tunisia can do it, why can’t we?” read one. “We will either start living or start dying on 25 January.”

Tunisia Street Riots Today! (Pics)

Here are a few pictures to show the mood of Tunisia in the present time.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For the most part it looks like the worst is over. Their is calm in the streets of Tunisia and people are slowly beginning to return to their daily lives. The UN estimated that at least 117 people died, including 70 killed by live fire, in five weeks of bloodshed linked to demonstrations which led to the ousting of Ben Ali.

Yesterday, as the interim cabinet held its first meeting, around 500 protestors, mostly the radical left and trade unions, took to the streets in central Tunis demanding that the ruling RCD party be excluded. But the mood in the capital was lightening. (The Guardian)

Riots Spreading to Libya, Algeria, Egypt, Yemen!

Copying off of Mohamed Bouazizi, 7 people have either tried to or successfully set themselves on fire. After a month of street protests and nearly a month of violent riots, Zine Al-Abedine Ben Ali, Dictator of Tunisia, is now in exile and his RCD party in shambles.

See post: https://opinionrepublic.wordpress.com/2011/01/19/tunisia-protest-riots-change/

Now, riots have spread to neighboring countries. The events in Tunisia have sparked riots in Algeria, against the president Abdelaziz Bouteflika, since early January which continue to this day.

Their are reports of protests in Egypt as well, with atleast one person lighting himeself on fire.

Tunisia: Protest! Riots! Change?!?!

So for those of you who don’t know what happened in the little North African country of 10 million, Tunisia, here is a super quick update.

December 2011
Street protests over unemployment and political restrictions break out and soon spread all over the country.

Clashes with police continued for the whole month of December.

January 2011

Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire after police stopped him from selling fruits on the street, which was the 26 year old students only form of income.

What was once street protests turned into all out street riots. Police began shooting protesters on sight.

Demonstrators say police killed at least 50 people in an attempt to suppress dissent.

 

So, here we are today. Zine Al-Abedine Ben Ali, the Dictator of Tunisia for 23 years, in exile and the his RCD party currently being picked apart with ministers quitting by the hand full. Currently the once deadly streets of Tunisia are now quieting down, the most resent protest was held today. People are beginning to go back to their everyday lives. There are now reports of mysterious masked snipers on the roof tops shooting at civilians (see one of the videos below).

 We went from protests to all out riots but will the people of Tunisia ever get the change they so passionately desire? We have yet to find out. Meanwhile, take a look at some heart warming riot footage courtesy of YouTube.

Here is an early look at the protests from December 26th 2010

Barack Obama Just Ruined Sports!

You know how sports used to be the one thing to sit back a watch. The one thing that would take your mind off the wild and deceiving world of politics. Well Barack Obama has some how managed to change that. When I nearly threw my television out of the window because the Pittsburgh Steelers won the super bowl due to Barack Obama’s “uncalled-for” support, I thought despite all the flat out cheating of the officials on Pittsburghs side, it’s just a coincidence.

But when the North Carolina Tarheels win the NCAA championship, which happened to be the team Mr. Obama was rooting for,  you have to say something’s up.  Now I know what you’ll say, “Barack Obama is a miracle worker and he is the smartest person on the planet and he is the best and he is this and he is that and he knows what team to choose because he somehow manages to save the world and the economy and for some remarkable reason he also manages to watch and stay up-to-date on every dang sport!”

You know what I say, “NO……NO ………Okay?….. Just NO.” First of all, that is humanly impossible and second every time he says I root for this team they happen to win the championship in a NOT fair manor. I was so angry at the officiating in the Pittsburgh and Carolina Super Bowl that I nearly threw my TV out the window. I was so angry and frustrated at the stupid blind officiating of the NCAA championship game I had to quietly get up and walk away from the television during the last 5 mins in the game or else I would have burned something.

So just to make the president, or shall I say celebrity, look good they have to do this. Come on don’t stoop that low! Mr.Obama you preach change and never give it, you can preach tax cuts and never do it, you can preach better health care and never offer it, you can preach victory and never prevail, but please don’t ruin our game!!!!!

Just don’t say anything! when the stupid reporters ask, “Who do you think is gonna win?” can’t you just act like a normal responsible president and say, “I think we have more important issues to deal with beside who’s gonna win the NCAA championship.” I’m sure we all know that the winner of the NCAA championship is not gonna stop Taliban are they?

OUT!

History of The New World Order, How it started and what will become of it

According to the World Net Daily,

The phrase ‘new world order’ traces back at least as far as 1940, when author H.G. Wells used it as the title of a book about a socialist, unified, one-world government. The phrase has also been linked to American presidents, including Woodrow Wilson, whose work on establishing the League of Nations pioneered the concept of international government bodies, and to the first President Bush, who used it in a 1989 speech.

“A new partnership of nations has begun, and we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment,” said Bush before a joint session of Congress. “Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective – a new world order – can emerge: A new era … in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.”

The phrase “New World Order” causes alarm for many Americans, particularly those concerned about an international governing body trumping U.S. sovereignty or those that interpret biblical prophecy to foretell the establishment of a one-world government as key to the rise of the Antichrist. Conspiracy theorists, too, have latched on to the phrase, concerned that powerful financial or government figures are secretly plotting to rule the world.

Kissinger’s ties to government and international powers – as well as his use of the phrase – have made him suspect in the eyes of many who are wary of what “new world order” might actually mean.

“There is a need for a new world order,” Kissinger told PBS interviewer Charlie Rose last year, “I think that at the end of this administration, with all its turmoil, and at the beginning of the next, we might actually witness the creation of a new order – because people looking in the abyss, even in the Islamic world, have to conclude that at some point, ordered expectations must return under a different system.”

As WND reported, Kissinger was also part of last year’s super-secret Bilderberg Group, an organization of powerful international elites, including government, business, academic and journalistic representatives, that has convened annually since 1954.

According to sources that have penetrated the high-security meetings, the Bilderberg meetings emphasize a globalist agenda and promote the idea that the notion of national sovereignty is antiquated and regressive.

According to Wikipedia their are a number of ways the New World Order could come about.

Postulated implementations

Just as there are several overlapping and even conflicting theories among conspiracy theorists about the nature of the New World Order, so are there several beliefs about how its architects and planners will implement it:

Gradualism

Some conspiracy theorists speculate that the New World Order is being implemented gradually, citing the formation of the Federal Reserve bank; the United Nations; the World Health Organization; the World Bank; the World Trade Organization; the European Union and the Euro currency; the Middle East Free Trade Area and various Middle East peace processes; and the African Union as major milestones.[citation needed]

In particular, paleoconservative documentary maker Alex Jones claims in his film Endgame that the theorized North American Union and the Amero currency will be an implementation of the New World Order, orchestrated by the Bilderberg Group.[31]

Coup d’état and martial law

Some conspiracy theorists, especially those associated with the United States militia movement, speculate that the New World Order will be implemented by martial law after a dramatic coup d’état, using UN peacekeepers and black helicopters, against all nation-states to bring about a world government. Before year 2000 some conspiracists believed this process would be set in motion by the predicted Y2K problem causing societal collapse.[32] After the September 11 attacks, some have become convinced that a more catastrophic terrorist incident will be responsible for triggering this process.

Surveillance-industrial complex

Some religious and secular conspiracy theorists believe that the New World Order will be created by the surveillance-industrial complex through the use of Social Security numbers, and the bar-coding of retail goods with Universal Product Code markings. Current theorists have implicated RFID tagging as well. Consumer privacy advocates Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre, authors of Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID, wrote another book on the subject from a Christian perspective, which associates spychips with the Number of the Beast mentioned in the Book of Revelation.[33] Christian conservative political activist Mark Dice, leader of an organization called “The Resistance of Christ,” also believes there is a strong connection.[34][35][36]

“Externalization of the Hierarchy”

In Alice Bailey’s conspiracy theories, a group of ascended masters called the Great White Brotherhood works on the “inner planes” to oversee humanity’s transition to the New World Order. At present, the members of this Spiritual Hierarchy are only know­n to a few people, with whom they communicate telepathically, but as the need for their personal involvement in the plan increases, there will be an “Externalization of the Hierarchy” and all people will know of their presence on Earth.[37]

Wikipedia has also a time line of the milestones of the New World Order

Timeline

There are several events that are considered pivotal in and related to the establishment of the New World Order:[38]

[Breaking News] Say “goodbye” to Mr.Bush!

So, yesterday Mr.Bush bade his farewell to the country. Blabbing about our journey together and talking about our founders. I think all of it is bubkis. There is no we in I. Mr. Bush made all the decisions. We didn’t make mistakes. He did. We didn’t choose war. He did. We didn’t crash two planes into the twin towers and kill 3000 Americans. He did. We didn’t elect the worst president in United States history. He did.

This is a farewell from him to us. It’s not a farewell from us to him. Nor should we acknowledge his farewell.

Yet, new questions arise. We have a new president or is it a new problem? Did we elect our new president or did our new president elect us. Are we making the right decisions or is he making the right decisions. Are there hidden motives? We must look beyond the cameras, beyond the press, we must look into the president and interpret his real intentions.  We must look at the people around him and their intentions.

We may be the victims of starvation, and a savior comes along like the president-elect, we jump on the food and submit. We do as he says with no objections, we follow his lead with no caution, we place our trust in a leader that makes promises, but its one thing to make promises and it’s a whole other thing to keep them. Placing your trust in a leader that makes promises is like placing your trust in a lion that says, “I won’t eat you.” Placing your trust in a leader that keeps promises is like placing your trust in a butterfly that says, “I won’t hurt you.”

The saying goes, “If the people lead, the leaders will follow.” A perfect example of that has happened, and been happening, all over the world. It’s time we show our president-elect that we can lead him, that we elect him, that he doesn’t lead us and he doesn’t elect us as his followers because we are weak and media driven. It’s about time we show the media that they don’t pick our leader, that they don’t control us, we do. If we all just suddenly stopped watching TV, they would be grovelling at our feet begging that we do; Then we would be the leaders, right? We would be controlling them.

See, leadership happens when one person wants something that another person can give or make happen, or promise to happen. In this case we have a trash economy, we want it better. We have the worst president in history, we want a better one. Mr.president-elect (Obama) promises he will give us a better economy, and he promises a better president in him. That’s were leadership happens, he leads us because he can do something that we can’t and we want that something.

The media makes money off of our desire to watch TV. Our desire to listen to what ever they say, drives them to elect our president. When we stop watching TV, the leadership role changes. They want us and they will do anything to make us watch TV. Now we control them because we have something that they want-Television ratings…. and money.

So, Mr.Bush I appreciate your farewell, but that’s all it will be….an appreciation. I don’t accept it, I don’t give my farewell to you, I just appreciate it.

I thought I’d show you guys some pics, that I photoshopped

Iraqi Journalist Throws Shoes at George W.Bush?

To much of my surprise I saw, on Yahoo, the above title (minus the questions mark). The story goes, George W.Bush makes a surprise visit to Iraq. During a press conference with Iraqi president (I don’t know his name) a Journalist throws both of his shoes at the President. The President ducked and was NOT hit by either shoe. No one was injured during this fiasco. 

 

As all of you probably know my anti-New World Order attitude, it only seems natural for me to debunk this. I am, and I think you will be pleased with the results. 

 

Before we start I want everyone to see the real thing so here is a video.  The captions in the video are what the journalist is saying during his rampant shoe throwing.

 

Now let me show you the flaws with this whole scenario and why this was all an act…..a rehearsed act. Just like the Bin Laden Videos. 

 

Mr.Bush, Just seconds before a Journalist throws two shoes at him.

Mr.Bush, Just seconds before a Journalist throws the first of two shoes at him.

Mr.Bush, Just milliseconds before a Journalist throws two shoes at him.

Mr.Bush, Just milliseconds before a Journalist throws the second of two shoes at him.

 

Now lets skip to the more exciting part. While the shoe is actually making its way over Mr.Bush’s head.

 

 

Mr. Bush, while the first of two shoes comes over his head.

Mr. Bush, while the first of two shoes comes over his head.

 

 

 

Let us analyze the first flaw in this act. 

 

 

"How is Bush able to duck, yet the Iraqi president can't react?"

"How is Bush able to duck, yet the Iraqi president can't react?"

 

 

How is Bush able to swiftly duck, yet the Iraqi president can barely react? That “shoe” is a sandal, which carries significantly less mass which means significantly less velocity. 

 

 

The second shoe is flying over Bush's head.

The second shoe is flying over Bush's head.

 

Now the flaws.

 

 

"The Iraqi President has yet to offer a believable reaction."

"The Iraqi President has yet to offer a believable reaction."

 The Iraqi President has yet to offer a believable reaction. Unwillingly, extending your arm is in no way protecting the president nor changing the trajectory of the sandal. 

 

 

 

Seconds after Bush nearly get hit in the head by two shoes thrown by a journalist.

Now the flaws of this image.

 

 

Bush shoos a security guard after the guard comes to his aid.

Bush shoos a security guard after the guard comes to his aid.

You may need to watch the video again to spot this one. Mr.Bush actually shoos the guard away as the guard comes to his aid. 

 

Now I want to talk about the key area in this video. It is the whole back half of the room. Here is an untouched picture with no visual aid from me. Pay attention to the back half of the room. Just think, what is missing?

 

 

Pay attention to the back half.

Pay attention to the back half.

Do you know what’s wrong?  well, here are the answers. 

 

 

 

 

 

The chandelier is in the way of the sandal throw.

The chandelier is in the way of the sandal throw.

First off, their are no security guards behind the president or on either side. There isn’t even anyone sitting at the desk to the left. Here’s why, Judging by the  reflections of the chandelier  off the wall and desk, the chandelier is directly or approximately under the desk and in line with Bush and the Iraqi president. To be honest I’ve never seen the president, or any president, talk at a podium at the FAR right of a room and skip the middle. If Mr.Bush and the Iraqi president were in the middle of the room, like they were suppose to be, and the guards were near the president, like they were suppose to be, The sandal would have hit the chandelier and all havoc would wreak. Pieces of chandelier would be everywhere and the president could have been injured. 

If you look at the chandeliers height, based on reflection, it is right in-line with the door which is at a safe guess of 7ft. Assuming that the president is an  average height of 6ft that makes the chandelier only 1 foot higher than the presidents head. 

Instead of catastrophe, the sandals quietly slam into the wall behind and guards suspiciously run out from the door on the side of the wall behind the president. It took a whopping 7 seconds for the guards to reach the president from that back room as well as the guard that had to stagger over people. According to my calculations if the journalist had a standard hand gun, he could have got off 9 to 11 shots in that same period of 7 seconds. The last time the secret service was not around the president was during John F.Kennedy’s deadly drive through Dallas. 

 

All comments and opinions welcome.

 

Why I Think The 2008 Election Will be Rigged!

*Updated Version* Written sept 23, 2008

Okay, I updated this to reflect the current time, Mr.Bush had “hot dogs” with McCain along time ago. Anyway, I think it is all apparent that the election WILL be rigged this time around(just see the comments). I think the question is why.

Why? you ask….Why will the election be rigged? I think I need not say much. Oil, war, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Terrorism.

These words are all that should utter from my keyboard and you shall immediately perceive my conception. It’s very simple any human being (republicans excluded of course) can see that if Barrack obama is president all or most of the top will be gone. Everything that republicans worked for, lied for, cheated, falsified. All of it will be gone years of work, trillions spent. They spend tens of billions of dollars a month on stupid nonsense wars, do you honestly think that they will not spend a dime in rigging the election?

The past two elections were rigged, the first one with Al Gore — A problem with the voting in Florida. The second with John Kerry, a problem with the voting in Ohio. Never in the history of ever did two elections in a row turn out to have some sort of problem with the votes. If that happens this year I will go crazy. Mark my words, “Barrack Obama will not become president of these United States of America do to a lurid rigging of the elections. It is absolutely farcical that they can do such a thing not once, but twice and now attempt to do it again.

This one is for you Mr.Mcain, you will never win. The American people are smarter, they will figure out and when your fatuous, foolish, half-witted, harebrained, idiotic, imbecilic, inane, jerky, moronic, nonsensical, stupid, unwise, weak-minded, witless, balmy, cockeyed, appalling, atrocious, awful, plans unravel in the perspicacious eyes of the American people and the world–you’ll get what’s coming.

Yet, the most disturbing part of this whole predictable scenario is that Palin will be the president not Mr.McCain and I think you all know what I mean by that. Sarah Palin is the most inexperienced utterly despicable excuse for a vice president I have ever seen. She walks up on stage says a few stupid jokes that aren’t even funny and all of a sudden everyone is buying her glasses. This is a serious time and if she wants to be a comedian then she should go on youtube where all the shoddy comedians go.

Original article (bellow) written March 27, 2008

So, why do I think the 2008 election will be rigged in John McCains favor? Well, right now their are three strong reasons why I think it will definitely be rigged.

1) George W. Bush endorses John McCain. [and we all know what happened when George W. Bush cheated, even the Canadians were surprised that we picked Bush again, but guess what…..We didn’t pick him!]

2) George W. Bush invited him for “Hot Dogs” at the White House. [What people don’t know is that Bush inviting McCain over for “Hot Dogs” really means lets talk about how your going to cheat to win the election so me and Dick Cheney can pass commands through you so we can get what we want.]

3) ” McCain meets Brown in Downing St” this is a headline, from BBC. John McCain visited the UK Prime Minister to talk about Iraq and stuff. [Whats the point of talking to the Prime Minister about the Iraq war if your not even sure your going to win the elections? Exactly! He knows darn well that he already won the elections in 2008 and George W. Cheat…..I mean George W. Bush reassured him of that. Mark my words JOHN MCCAIN WILL WIN THE 2008 ELECTION IN NOVEMBER.

Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton are just waisting their time. They should just quit and give it to him now.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like McCain I am simply telling the truth through past experience.

Obama Wins in Mississippi!!!!

JACKSON, Miss. – Barack Obama coasted to victory in Mississippi‘s Democratic primary Tuesday, latest in a string of racially polarized presidential contests across the Deep South and a final tune-up before next month’s high-stakes race with Hillary Rodham Clinton in Pennsylvania. – Yahoo News

Obama was winning roughly 90 percent of the black vote but only about one-quarter of the white vote, extending a pattern that carried him to victory in earlier primaries in South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana.

His triumph seemed unlikely to shorten a Democratic marathon expected to last at least six more weeks — and possibly far longer — while Republicans and their nominee-in-waiting, Sen. John McCain, turn their attention to the fall campaign. – Yahoo News

“Now we look forward to campaigning in Pennsylvania and around the country,” Maggie Williams, Clinton’s campaign manager, said in a written statement that congratulated Obama on his victory.

“I’m confident that once we get a nominee, the party is going to be unified,” Obama said as he collected his victory.

But in a race growing more contentious, he took a swipe at the way his rival’s campaign has conducted itself.

“We’ve been very measured in terms of how we talk about Senator Clinton,” he said. “I’ve been careful to say that I think Senator Clinton is a capable person and that should she win the nomination, obviously, I would support her. I’m not sure we’ve been getting that same approach from the Clinton campaign,” he said in on CNN. – Yahoo News

Wow, Obama is still going strong. Hillary is going to need something big to come back let alone even win this thing.

Returns from 25 percent of Mississippi’s precincts showed Obama gaining 54 percent, to 43 percent for Clinton.

Obama picked up at least six Mississippi delegates to the Democratic National Convention, with 27 more to be awarded. He hoped for a win sizable enough to erase most if not all of Clinton’s 11-delegate gain from last week, when she won three primaries. -Yahoo News

Yeah, that three primary win the Hillary got last week must have scared the Obama supporters. She just could keep the momentum.

The Illinois senator had 1,585 delegates to 1,473 for Clinton. It takes 2,025 to win the nomination.

Neither of the two rivals appears able to win enough delegates through primaries and caucuses to prevail in their historic race for the nomination, a development that has elevated the importance of nearly 800 elected officials and party leaders who will attend next summer’s national convention as unelected superdelegates.

Obama leads Clinton among pledged delegates, 1,374-1,226 in The Associated Press count, while the former first lady has an advantage among superdelegates, 247-211.

There was little suspense about the Mississippi outcome, and both Clinton and Obama spent part of their day campaigning in Pennsylvania, which has 158 delegates at stake in a primary on April 22.

The volatile issue of race has been a constant presence in the historic Democratic campaign, and it resurfaced during the day in the form of comments by Geraldine Ferraro, the 1984 Democratic vice presidential candidate and a Clinton supporter.

“If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position. And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept,” she said in an interview with the Daily Breeze of Torrance, Calif., that was published last Friday. – Yahoo News

Clinton expressed disagreement with Ferraro’s comments, and said, “It’s regrettable that any of our supporters — on both sides, because we both have this experience — say things that kind of veer off into the personal.”

Obama called Ferraro’s remarks “patently absurd.” – Yahoo News

Blacks, who have supported Obama in overwhelming numbers in earlier primaries, accounted for roughly half the ballots cast in Mississippi, according to interviews with voters leaving polling places.

About one in six Democratic primary voters were independents, and Clinton and Obama split their support. Another 10 percent of voters were Republican, and they preferred Clinton by a margin of 3-1.

Six in 10 Obama supporters said he should pick the former first lady as his vice presidential running mate if he wins the presidential nomination. A smaller share of Clinton’s voters, four in 10, said she should place him on the ticket. – Yahoo News

Every time I say Obama is going to win, Hillary pops out of now where and wins three primaries. So, I’m just going to say that every presidential hopeful has an equal chance to win and I wish good luck to Obama and Hillary. [But lets be honest for a second, it does look like Obama is takin this thing home Right?]
