Fwd: Fw: A Poem to Remember

This is too good not to read, and too good to not pass along. 
"A bump in the road" .... remember that callous statement ? 
I do recall, President Obama’s referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road."

Today I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives.

At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes.

He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not.

He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.

The poem was written by a anonymous Marine Corps Officer Officer.


THE BATTLING BOYS OF BENGHAZI !

We're the battling boys of Benghazi 
No fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell
defending our country we loved so well.

It wasn't our job, but we answered the call,
fought to the Consulate and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty Countrymen from the jaws of fate
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate. 

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
But we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought, and we fought, and we fought 'til we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
But Barack Obama didn't give a damn.
Just two dead seals who carried the load
No thanks to us.........we were just "Bumps In the Road". 


So will this reach every American with a computer? Or do we act like the press and give a pass to the incompetent people who literally sat there in the White House and watched the Seal's execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing? The Obama Administration obviously won't be held accountable because we apparently accept Hilary Clinton's statement "What difference does it make?"

Ross Rant

July 29 2018

To understand the trade war with China, you need to understand that
China at the moment is having a major slowdown economically. The stock
market is down 25%. Many banks are being bailed out by the government.
Everything and everyone in China is way over levered, and the economy
is therefore in a high risk position which the government was trying
to fix.  The trade war got in the way, forcing the government to
subsidize the smaller banks. China is loaning tens of billions to
countries like Pakistan to build ports and railroads and
infrastructure. Problem is, these countries have zero possible way to
ever repay these loans.  So now they are faced with stopping the
projects or asking the IMF to bail them out.

It is a mess for China and the countries who took the loans.  There is
starting to be pushback against China for this. So, Trump’s timing to
go after China is exactly right.  They are in a weakened position
right now. Ignore all the hype about how they could sell their $1.4
trillion of US Treasuries —to who???  Not going to happen.  The whole
world agrees China violates every rule on trade and steals IP.  Trump
is just the only one who is willing to take them on, with the rest of
the world cheering him on from the sidelines.  Now it appears the EU
is willing to cooperate with Trump and revise the WTO and to push
China on IP and other trade violations.  Something they were never
willing to do before.

Can 4% GDP growth continue?  Maybe. But 3.5% would be great.  Remember
the left, and the press saying in 2016 and early 2017,  2% was the new
normal maximum, and the US was at its peak and we faced stagflation,
economic decline, etc. 2% was the accepted number as what good growth
would be.  Larry Summers was right out there saying 4% was impossible.
Some in the mainstream media and Wall St said getting above 2% was
pure fantasy, and Trump was dreaming.

So, as I have said often, ignore the talking heads, and the mainstream
media.  They all have an agenda.  Almost none are objective.  The tax
bill and deregulation was a huge boost.  The left just can’t admit it.
There are even stories now in the press that 4% is really a bad
thing???  4% is great, it may not be 4% next quarter, but 3.5% would
be terrific.   If Trump really does a deal with the EU, Mexico and
Canada, and then Japan, 3.5%, or better, is very realistic.

Capital expenditures will ramp up further once the tariff issues
subside and that uncertainty goes away.  They say exports were hyped
due to pending tariffs, but to do that, inventories were drawn down,
so this quarter inventories will be rebuilt, pushing up GDP growth
upward.  The press does not want you to believe it because it means
the Republicans win in November, so they will try to convince you
otherwise.  Even my very liberal economist friends admit privately to
me that the economy is going to be booming for at least 6 more
quarters.  The key is to reelect Republicans to control Congress.

Keep in mind Maxine Waters is chair of the finance committee if the
Dems get control, and Nancy is speaker.  Think about that combo, and
the ability to get budgets and more tax reform done.  It should drive
you to the polls and to take all your friends with you to vote.  What
a trade: Trump, and 4% GDP,

or Maxine Waters.

If you want to understand Russia, and the whole gas pipeline issue---
gas and oil is 52% of Russia’s GDP.  The GDP of Russia is slightly
smaller than NY State, around $1.5 trillion. GDP per capita is only
$8,748 in 2017.  Far lower than in 2013.  We heard this first hand
when I was in Russia, but now the stats show it to be true.  The
standard of living in Russia is declining. 20% of the Russian budget
goes to weapons and the army.

So Trump is right - how can Germany build a new gas pipeline with
Russia which will fund more weapons spending, when they are supposedly
having sanctions because of weapons and Crimea.  It is nuts.  The gas
line will provide Russia billions of new cash flow for weapons which
are aimed at ----Germany.  But Merkel also thought letting in over 1
million Muslims was also a great idea until the voters rebelled, and
the rest of the EU voted right wing in response.

Reality is Russia is now in economic decline due to lower oil prices
and corruption.  Defense spending was reduced this year.  So what does
Merkel want to do – build the pipeline to pay them more badly needed
money.  Trump is not out of line for his comments.  The pipeline is
the same as Obama paying Iran $150 billion just as their economy was
tanking.  Truth is Russia cannot afford to wage a real war in Europe
now that Trump has forced NATO to materially up spending and
readiness.

If Obama was still in power Putin could take over Baltic states and
have only a few sanctions because under Obama NATO was militarily
unable to react.  That was why Putin felt he could go into Crimea with
no big problem.  Putin also knew he could continue his cyber war with
no real consequences under Obama.  Don’t believe the crap about Trump
favors Putin, or they have something on him.  It is more lefty
nonsense.  The US pays 71% of NATO costs.  Germany pays less than 1.2%
of their GDP for their own defense.  We pay far more for Germany’s
defense than Germany does, and they can afford to pay.

Trump is right for making this a major issue.  So in 2018, NATO and
the US are upping spending on defense and Russia cannot keep up.
Russia is forced to reduce spending because oil prices did not rise as
much as Putin needed.

Under Obama US defense spending went down from 2013 on, and Russia
went up a lot, and China even more.  Obama left us in very bad and
weak shape vs our main adversaries.  It was massive US defense
spending by Reagan vs Russia, that won the cold war.  The story now is
very similar vs Russia and Iran.  The best way to win a war is to far
out spend the bad guys until they fold with no shots being fired.  A
strong offensive capability and willingness to use it (missiles fired
at Syria) is the best defense.  Putin and Xi got the message.  Putin
blew it by favoring Trump.  The last thing he wanted was a much
stronger US military and stronger, capable NATO.

Iran’s GDP is $439 billion, less than that of 14 states.  And now it
is tanking. Obama gave them $150 billion - 34% of their GDP.  Iran
cannot compete with US and Israel.  Israel is much smaller by
population and has a GDP of $320 billion.  With sanctions Trump is
imposing, Iran is in real economic trouble, and cannot afford a war
with us, the Sunnis and Israel.

The Obama nuke deal just empowered Iran to go on an expansion into
Syria, Iraq, Yemen  and Lebanon.  Now Israel and the US are pushing
back with the help of the Sunnis.  Reimposing sanctions will severely
cripple Iran and they will likely try to attack shipping in the
straits and the Red Sea.  It will end very badly for them now that the
Sunnis, Israel and the US are teamed up, the US military is being
rebuilt, Sadr is pushing back on Iran trying to control Iraq, and the
Iranian people are protesting and ready to revolt.

The entire Mideast situation is going to change by year end when
sanctions go back into effect.  Iran will run out of money to continue
their expansion.  What is astonishing is Merkel and the EU prefer to
try to get around the US sanctions and trade with Iran instead of
cooperating with us and destroying the regime.  And the press thinks
Trump acts badly with the EU???  The EU doesn’t pay for their own
defense and they favor Iran.

The US economy is on a roll.  It will be strong well into 2019 and
maybe into 2020.  The stock market will go up. Just be patient.  Bond
prices will decline further.  All equities will continue to work.
They will resolve trade in the next 90 days.  Before November. NAFTA
will get revised. WTO will get revised.  Putin is in no economic shape
to invade anyone, or do another Syria.  He is now motivated to try to
work with Trump.  If oil prices stay around where they are, Russia is
hurting. Q3 GDP will be over 3%.  This is like under Reagan.

Trump will bury Putin in military spending and Putin will have to
concede on some issues.  It will just take time.  It took Reagan three
years.  If the result is no pipeline, Russia is in more trouble.  Farm
products in the EU will still be a big problem.  Macron cannot give in
on this and stay in office.  From here on it is all about China, and
how Xi can give in and not lose face.

Bottom line, a very strong US economy and big defense spending will
overwhelm Russia and Iran. A strong economy, allowing big defense
spending, matters a lot in terms of geopolitics. The price of oil is
strategic, not just economic.

woman president. Mark it down

Subject: Fwd: Fwd: Message fromg Germany


Date: June 7, 2018 
NURSE IN GERMANY SENDS A MESSAGE TO THE WORLD

Just in case you don't think President Trump is doing the right thing!  Read it!

Pass this on to everyone you know!

"Yesterday, at the hospital, we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle the number of migrant medical emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the main hospitals. 
 
Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and we women are now refusing to go among those migrants! 

Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse.  Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9units.

Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we in Europe do not know how to treat.

If they receive a prescription to the pharmacy, they suddenly learn they have to pay cash. This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children. They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words: So, cure them here
yourselves!

So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also the large pharmacies. 

We ask openly where are all those who welcomed the migrants in front of TV cameras with signs at train stations? Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them.

Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least 3.5 million. Most of these people are completely unemployable. Only a small minimum of them have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that one in ten is pregnant. Hundreds of thousands of them have brought along infants and little kids under six, many emaciated and very needy. If this continues and Germany re-opens its borders, I am going home to the Czech Republic. Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even for double the salary back home. I came to Germany to work, not to Africa or the Middle East! 

Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who has cleaned every day for years for 800 Euro's and then meets crowds of young men in the hallways who just wait with their hands outstretched, wanting everything for free, and when they don't get it they throw a fit.

I really don't need this! But I am afraid that if I return home, at some point it will be the same in the Czech Republic. If the Germans, with their systems, cannot handle this, then, guaranteed, back home will be total chaos.....

You - who have not come in contact with these people have absolutely no idea what kind of badly behaved desperados these people are, and how Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation.

For now, the local hospital staff have not come down with the diseases these people brought here, but with so many hundreds of patients every day of this is just a question of time.  In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8-month-old on the brink of death, who they'd dragged across half of Europe for three months. The child died two days later, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The pediatric physician had to undergo surgery and the two nurses are recovering in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.

The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we can only inform you through email. What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed the doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurses face and so threatened her with infection?  At a minimum he would have gone straight to jail and later to court. With these people so far, nothing has happened.

And so I ask: Where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations? Sitting pretty at home, enjoying their uncomplicated, safe lives. If it were up to me, I would round up all those greeters and bring them here first to our hospitals emergency ward as attendants! Then in to one of the buildings housing the migrants, so they can really look after them there themselves, without armed police and police dogs, who, sadly today, are in every hospital here in Bavaria." 

Is this "situation" coming to your country?

IF YOU DO NOT TAKE AN INTEREST IN THE AFFAIRS OF YOUR GOVERNMENT, THEN YOU ARE DOOMED TO LIVE UNDER THE RULE OF FOOLS.- PLATO
